September 21.—In a dou ble line that never seemed to diminish as the day wore on, thousands of per sons today llled through the flower filled rotunda of the < ity hall and past the body of William J. Gay nor, lying iu state. Unmindful of a heavy downpour of rain in the morning, frequent show ers during the afternoon and threat ening skies tonight, the people tame In a continuous stream silently to find places in the long, slow moving proces sion that extended for half a mile along lower Broadway and through city hall park to the city hall. It was New York’s spontaneous tribute to its dead mayor. In the long line were street clean ers In their white uniforms, policemen, firemen and men high in the official life of the city and state, but for the most part the procession was made up f from the great so-called middle class. About a fifth 04 the crowd was made up of women and children and many of the latter curried small wreaths or bouquets of flowers which they placed near the coffin. 75,000 Pass Before 9 O’C'lock At 9 o'clock the police ou duty qt tho city lin.ll estimated that more than 70,000 persons had viewed the body. The line was still forming at a late hour tonight and Mayor Kline Issued an order to keep the rotunda open un . til 4 o'clock tomorrow morning If nec ' essary, go that all who came might pay personal tribute to the memory of his predecessor. Fully 100,000 per sons it Is believed will have viewed the body before the doors are closed. "It Is a remarkable tribute," Mayor Kline said as he viewed the great silent crowd. "No king, no emperor ever had a tribute paid to him like this great outpouring of citizens today. It Is tribute from the hearts of the peo ple." All lust night the police kept guard around city hall park and had diffi culty in keeping the crowds moving, »• many tried even At'an inordinately early hour to gel in line to view the body. Firemen and Police Guard Body Three policemen and three firemen in ^reliefs ul' a half hour stood rigidly at ’attention during the night beside the coffin, which was draped In the stars and stripes and the mayor's flag, while beneath could be seen the colors of the Union Jack placed there at the request of the Gaynor family In recognition of tho courtesy extended by the city of Liverpool upon the arrival of the may or's body In that city after bis death at sea. Cross branches of palms of victory were the only floral decorations on the cover of the coffin. Those branches were sent by the family. Behind the tiler hung the draped flours of Mayor Gaynor. The I Her rested ' .1 the same spot where the body of many famous men have laid in state. The last was that of Gov. George Clinton, whose body after resting In the grave for many years was removed to another cemetery and remained for a few hours In the city hall. Other noted men whose biers have rested beneath the dome of the hall were Abraham Lincoln, Gen. U. S. Grant, Horace Greeley and Get}. Jose A. Paez, President of Venezuela. Pathetic Incidents Numerous Pathetlo incidents were numerous dur ing the day as men and women whom the late mayor had befriended looked upon his face. Among these was a Brooklyn youth whose part Mayor Gaynor took when It was alleged ho was being perse cuted by tho police, and wt)ich resulted in an investigation and also the removal of , the boy's picture from the rogues' gal ; lery. The first person to pass was a German baker, who had taken Ills place at the doors after quitting work several hours previously. While the thousands Journeyed down town to pay. their respects In person, thousands of others attended memoriul tervleee In many churches in all parts of \.4ie city. Tonight the rotunda of the city hall was almost filled with floral offerings from Individuals and organizations front all parts of tho United States and from for eign countries^ One of these was sent by the lord mayor of Uiverpool, who (Cnntlaurd on Page Bight) FLIESON HIS SIDE Dips Left Wing; of His Bi plane Until Machine Turns ■ r _ » Versailles, September 21. — The French aviator Pegoud, ‘who "ecentiy Made an upside down flight at Juvisy and repeated the performance at Buc accomplished today another daring feat in hiii self-imposed task of proi ing the stability of the aeroplane.

Y., September 21.—Noth ing- short of death can prevent Gov ernor tSulzer and his wife from testify ing in his impeachment trial if the constitutional objections of his attor neys to the proceedings are overruled. This statement came tonight from an absolutely unquestionable source. It followed weeks of speculating as to whether either of them would testify. Friends of the governor have advised him on this point. Many have insisted that he ignore the proceedings entirely in so far as being present himself was concerned. Others have insisted that even if the governor decided to testify he should not permit Mrs. SUlster to tell her story. Will Tell His Story But the governor has maintained from the start that he will tell tl^e story of the alleged conspiracy which he In sists brought about his Impeachment. Mrs. Sulzer'a testimony has been con sidered too vital to the case of the de fense to permit her to remain silent. The governor has made the most ex tensive preparations for the presenta tion of'his testimony. It will take the form of a narrative from the time, soon after his election when, he avers, Turn many .hall and others began to bring pressure upon him'to do their bidding. He hopes to show, it Is understood, that gradually he incurred the enmity of many of the men back of the pres ent proceedings and tfie final break came only when he proved hopeless as a tool. From that paint he will nar rate Incidents that ne believes will show the gradual crystalization of the , impeachment proceedings, it is said. Amazing revelations which will In-1 volve a score or moje of widely known democratic politicians of the city of New York and upstate are predicted. Murphy May Testify t'harles F. Murphy, leader of Tammany Hall, whom Governor Suiter accuses of having Instigated his Impeachment, will be forced to take the witness stand practi cally In his own defense before the Im peachment trial Is over, In the opinion tonight of the ^governor's close friends. They say that his story will compell the attorneys for the impeachment managers to call the Tammany leader, make Is unknown. All attempts to in terview him on Ills,.expected testimony have been futile. But his friends pro fess to know that no Influence can pre vent him from testifying in event the constitutional objections raised by his at torneys to prevent the case from coming to trial are overruled. The governor's counsel tonight would not discuss the possibility of Mr. Murphy or anyone else being called as a witness while argument on these objections to he resumed tomorrow before the high court of Impeachment la pending. It was, however, recalled tonight that after the governor's so-called break with Murphy lust June, the governor publicly charged that the Tammany leader "was behind a conspiracy to blacken my character because I refused to do his bidding.," Sulzer Adherents Confident A growing spirit of confidence is mani fest among the Sulzer adherents. The fact that the board of managers is at tempting to pass additional articles of Impeachment Is asserted by the govern or's followers to be an admission ’that they fear they have not established a ease.

Wrote Out Confession After WolfsphU’s arrest guards no- i tioed that he constantly paced his cell and seemed to have something on his mind. Finally, according to the detec- j tives, the prisoner asked for pencil and j paper and wrote a note to the district attorney containing the .simple state ment that ho had killed a girl in a cemetery at Rochester and that her name was Schumacher. Under ques tioning by Captain Cameron and two other detectives, he collapsed. l^atei he recovered sufficiently to make his alleged confession, which, as repeated by the detectives is substantially as follows: “Wolfsohn said he passed the ceme tery every day on his way home and several times noticed the girl placing flowers on a grave.

The Interrogation \^as prompted by the speculation which has been freely in dulged that General Huerta Intended to throw his support to this or that man for the presidency to succeed himself. President Huerta received the news paper men at Popotlaj a suburb where he Is electing a ^Caidenee and where for the most part lie resides. He ex plained the attitude which the adminis tration will maintain, especially in tflV present circumstances, "as one of abso lute impartiality," an(l added that it would only take precautions to prevent any disturbances of peace and order and suppress any effort In that direc tion. Will Comply With Obligations The president said he would use the army. If necessary, to keep order, but pointed nut that the army in such event cauld not be said to be dis charging a duty imposed by politics but would be acting solely for the main tenance of democratic institutions. "I want to declare once for all in the face of the whole nation." said Gen eral Huerta, "that I shall comply with the obligations I have assumed.

IS BENDING EVERY EFFORT TO DO SO Has Discussed Measure Privately With Many Members of Bank ing and Currency Com mittee Washington. September 21.—Tho strongest test of President Wilson's control over party policies and over the legislative performances of Congress is about to occur. Within the last week he has seen the triutnph in the House of his currency reform demands and the practical completion of the tariff revision bill so far as administration Ideas are connected with it. Tho question now paramount In con rgessional circles bears directly upon the President be able to induce the Se.n eurrency reform situation In the Sen ate. Except for those immediately con nected with the handling of ihe cur rency bill, th« general query is: Will the rPesident be able to induce the Sen ate to act on the Giass-Owen bill with out delay and without material altera tion of Its provisions. No doubt remains of the determined purpose of the President to urge Con gress by every legitimate means at his command, to complete the currency legislation within the next few weeks and to give the country a new hank ing system and a revised form of paper currency before Deoembcr. No Senate Recess Evidences of his concern in the mat ter have come in a series of . vents in which his influence has determined tho action of Congressional leaders. Over a week ago, after a conference with Mr. Wilson, members of the Senate democratic committee announced that consideration of currency reform would be pushed without delay in tlie Senate and that thorn would be no Striata recess. A growing demand in the U uise tor a month’s recess to be introduced this week, culminated u lew days ago when Representative A. Mitchell Palmer, one of the democratic House* leaders, after , a talk with Fi'endd*’ n t Wilson, an nounced that the House would not re cess for more than three days at .1 time, but would remain close at hand where its influence could be exerted on the Senate, If desirable, to .^peed up that body’s work on the currency bill. The President has gone further in his activity in behalf of the currency bill and has talked at length with In dividual members of tho donate bank ing currency committee who had been strong critics of the administration measure. With the aid of Secretary McAdoo, who helped in the original preparation of the bill, it is understood that he will attempt to satisfy tho critics anti will endeavor to bring the democratic forces into united support of tho plan embodied in the hill that has passed the House. Thus far there has been marked in dependence of expression among demo cratic Senators engaged In work on the currency bill, as to Important points of currency legislation. Tho public hearings reopened by Chairman Owen last week are still un der way and will continue through part of this week. The actual committee work on the bill probably will begin this w*ek, and will develop for the first time the real strength in the commit tee in support of the President's plan for Immediate in dorse ftKmt of tho bill. Not Opposed to Legislation There are is apparently no spirit of antagonism to currency legislation among the leaders of either party in the Senate, but the wide differences of opin ion as to the beat method of revising the banking and currency system will brin^ (Continued on Page 101 ;ht) Albanians Assembling To Attack Servia Who Will Retaliate Belgrade, September 21.—The situa tion is grave along the Albanian fron tier, where Albanians, armed with mod ern rifles, are assembling to attack Ser via. Albanian agents have entered Ser vian territory and are endeavoring to stir to rebellion those* Albanians wh heretofore have been at peace. It is believed here that the hostile preparations are due to foreign in trigues against Servia and Montene gro.
