"My Dear Mr. President—Your let ter addressed to me, analyzing the gubernatorial situation In New Jer sey. has been given very careful con sideration. "As you are aware, my entrance Into the gubernatorial race was In spired by a desire to secure a con tinuation of the Progressive move ment In our party, and for the pur pose of offering u candidacy openly and unalterably opposed to the ele ments and Interests with which we have been battling for years, and which you know were and are inimi cal to the Interests of good govern ment. Prom your review or political con ditions at this time, you conclude that, my continuation In the race would he unwise and likely to cause factional strife and jeopardize the Progressive movement In the State, and you sug gest that under tile circumstances my withdrawal as a candidate would be wise. Cunts Away Ambition. "In view of my attitude in connec tion with the Progressive movement in this State for years, and my record upon all the vital questions involved In that movement, it would ill-become me to do anything or lead any move ment which would injure the cause of good government in the State, or al low my ambition to control mo Irre spective of my party’s good. "Under all the circumstances now confronting me, and particularly in view of your communication, and the suggestions therein contained, togeth er with my personal knowledge of the political situation at this time, ami in ednsideration of the loyal progres sive Democrats who have given me their sincere support ever since my name has been mentioned in connec tion with the gubernatorial nomina tion, I believe that my duty to my friends and my party Is clear, and I therefore withdraw as a candidate for Governor. "However, my withdrawal as a candidate for the nomination for Governor does not for a moment change or alter my earnest purpose to continue the fight for good govern meat and clean politics in the State, and in my county. “May I not say In passing, that a Governor with the hcHt intentions pos sible. will be powerless to maintain the advantages gained for the people during the last two years, under the banner of progressive Democracy, and will be unable to place In operation a constructive policy, which any pro gressive candidate must adopt, unless supported by a Legislature uncon trolled, and Inspired by a conviction that no backward step be taken. "I therefore pledge myself and serv ice to the great work at hand, and be lieve that the Democrats of New Jer sey are entitled to your active sup port in securing not only the election of a progressive Governor but of a Legislature In accord with the. policies and program that you have initiated in this State, and which your suc cessor must maintain and perpetuate, if our party is to continue in power.

With Knife and File Man Make3 Marvelous Designs—To Ex hibit at Exposition. Day in and day out for eighteen years, Jacob Klein, with knife and tile, has kept his dexterous fingers em ployed. The little wooden works of art that have resulted from his won derful skill are his only reward for his years of patience and toll, but with the completion of each of the objects he set out to make he has his pay In the pride of the workman and the admiration of the onlooker. Klein was born In Hungary 68 years ago. From early youth he dleplayed more than ordinary ability as a whlttler and while he was at school, ho had a group of boy admirers of the marvelous things he could do with a knife. But later In life he grew away from this and he found work at various trades .intli when he had reached 60, he was a jack of all trades, and master of none. At this period nearly all of his eight children were working and they telt it time for their father to retire and live n life of ease. Klein could not stay Idle and with time on his hands he turned again to the entertainment of his boyhood, ills jack-knife he still had and with a file he stnrted to fashion Intricate works of wood. One day when his wife's back was turned he appropri ated a black walnut noodle board and began to ply his knife on It. It became tiresome working at the one thing continuously, so, another day he appropriated the handle of a broom, and the beginning of a scep tre, used in the Jewish religious serv ices. was seen. Six years ago he o»mc to America with his family and his hobby, at he calls It. The work on the walnut board continued until he had fash ioned it Into a chain within a chain. One chain of the wooden links runs through another chain, n rare piece of work, according to wood carvers. The sceptre Is clean-cut and Ingenu ous, hut another of his creations, a cross, is still more clever. There are nineteen parts to the cross, each con tained In the original one piece and Irremovable. Topping the large cross Is a smaller one nearly an Inch high. This top cross can be turned In Its socket, but cannot be taken out, and as It is part of the original wood It was hard to understand how lie had loosed it without causing it to fall out. Samuel Klein, his son, of t’hrnme, N. ,I„ and Ills partner, Harry Hnnflein, managir if the American Mutual Corporation, of this city, ex plained how, early one morning, the carver had awoke suddenly and heat ing a hatpin over tha (ire formed a knife that would solve a problem he had worked on for months. It cut down only uh far is another cross cut in the wood. Here enough of the original piece had been left to form a ring around the cross to hold It in rlace. Now Klein Is working in his home in West Virginia on a china closet to be built of 8,(00 pieces of wood. When finished he will take tt In Pieces to Han Francisco at the ex position in 1915. Arter setting It up— it will have no nails, ferews, glue or other fasteners—he will offer a toward to anyone who can take tt opart without breaking the parts. He also has a 1,800-piece ivory ink well under way that he expects to finish in a year.
