HEARTJAILS Mayor of New York Ex pires Suddenly Wear ing Queenstown. UP FOR ANOTHER TERM Flanned to Enter Fight on Re turn as Opponent of Tam many Hall Forces. New York, Sept. 11. William J. Caynor, major of New York City, (lied jestcrday in mid-ocean aboard the steamship Baltic, on which he was a passenger lor Europe on a vacation trip. News of the deatn was received here in a wireless and a cable to Rol rtson Adart'Kon, the mayor's secre tary, from Rufus W. Gaynor, his son, who sailed with him. The message read: "Father died Wednesday at 1 o'clock of heart failure. Notify mother." Mayor Gaynor sailed from New York, a fast failing man, the morning of Sept. 4. An hour before he sailed but one man, his secretary, knew his plans outside of members of his im mediate family. The mayor's announc ed purpose was a brief vacation on the ocean. He felt the touic effect of the salt air would restore him in some measure to health. The Baltic is due In Queenstown today. The mayor died as it was nearing the other side. Olt.lll; KIT K.iT.tl lacking details of the manner of Gaynor's death, his friends believe the heart attack was brought on by a return at coughing fits that recurred el intervals since he was shot. The I mayor used to speak of the irritation in his throat as a "fish book." It was the "fish hook" probably that caused death. James Gallagher, who Fliot tiarw- because the latfeF"' re fused to reinstate him in the New York dock department, was sentenced to i: years. After serving a year he i was taken to the New Jersey state hospital for the insane, and died last February. The shooting of Gaynor occurred at Hoboken as Gayror was bbout to take a boat for Europe. TO Hl. AS I.I)EPEN DGNT. Gaynor left New .York at a tine when the city was seething with one of the strangest municipal political c.ampaigug in its history. The day before- his departure he was notified on the city hall steps by representa tives of Independent political organiza tions that they had chosen him as their standard bearer in the mayoralty campaign. A throng crowded City Hall park to hear him accept. He had pre pared a speech, but was so weak he was unable to deliver It and bis sec retary read it. The mayor was stand ing beside him. The recent attack of old throat troubte, due to a wound inflicted Aug. 13, 1910, by James Gallagher, Just as he was about to leave the city for Europe had entirely disappeared, ac- cording to Secretary Adamson, and the mayor expected to return and en- t-r the campaign with his old time Mgor. OX FIRST VACTIOX. The niavor himself, before leaving, fpoke of bis condition as follows: "I have been nearly four years mayor und have not had any vacation. I t-uppose almost everybody concedes may have one now. I was laid up a few davg wtih ;liarp attacks 1 occa i-ior.ally have from my mishap a few ears ago, but am over It. I hope r.ever to have another." He was ex pected to attack Tammany hall sharp ly politically as soon as he returned tr the city. Before his departure he Issued a siaten-ent in which he re ferred tr, Tammany leaders as "mis rrable scamps," seeking htg "moral ussassination." The bullet lodged in his throat three years ago has never been removed. His sudden death leaves only the democratic and fusion , takets in the field. MAY OT FILL VA( AX Y. It is expected his followers will make no attempt to nominate a can didate in his place. No other places vn the Gaynor ticket have yet been tilled. Gaynor was placed at the head of the independent ticket after Tam many Hall refused him a renomina tion. lie was to lead those opposed to the regular democratic organisation and yet unwilling to Join a fusion of republicans and progressives. His standard was the shovel, reminding the voters of his efforts to hasten the building of new subways. The mayor said it was also emblematic of his intention to "clean tho grafters put." The pushing of Gaynor recalled the sudden death of Henry George of sin- g''1 tax fame, a third patty candidate, a!mot on the eve of the mayoralty election 16 years ago. Acting Mayor Kline will be chief executive until the inauguration of Gayno's successor in November. BORX OV A FARM. William Jay Gaynor was born on a farm near Whitestown, N. ., la ISsl. William J. Caynor. He had to help the family there in a struggle for existence end n this fight had to take time for his own educa tion. He graduated from Whitestown seminary, went to Boston high school, tfterwards Ftudied law at Utira, and later became justice of the supreme court of New York. In 1873 he went to Brooklyn and became a newspaper reporter. Two years later he was admitted to the bar. From that mo ment until his death he had lived midst continual warfare. He started In with an attack upon unlicensed sa loons in the Flatbush district of Brooklyn and won. Ten years later he led a successful fight against the so-called McLaughlin ring in Brooklyn. His battle against John Y. McKane, boss of Sheepshead Bay and Coney is land, attracted nation-wide attention. McKaae died in Sing Sing. ON WTHKHK BK(H. Caynor was elected a justice of the New York supreme court In 1893, on a nomination by republicans and in-j dependents, but resigned to accept a nomination for mayor of New York j City. to which he was elected in No- vember, 1909. His career as mayor bore imprints of hie personality in man striking innovations. As he expressed it: "I never quarreled with organization leaders because I was too busy. I simply did my work day to day and I kept their hands out of the public trea . MIKI'HV SIIWKK.n. Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tam many Hall, whom Gaynor, just before sailing, had scathingly denounced. 6aid: "I am much shocked. I know he went away a very sick man. I deeply regret his death." Kline, who will act as mayor, is a republican. SULZER WITHOUT POWER IS RULING Now York Justice Holds Execu tive Is Divested of All Func tions of Office. Kingston, N. Y., Sept. 11.

The preparation for transferring the remains had been in progress for sortie time. The whole of the burial en closure, where the remains were known to be without designation of the particular spot, had been exca vated over a circular area Bixty feet !ln, diameter. Such bones of the mar tyrs as had survived a century's inter ment were found to be numerous, but there was no complete skeleton and no means of identification. The remains had been gathered up several days ago and placed in a copper lined, hermetically sealed box, and then re Interred in the same spot, awaiting today's exercises. FORM MXE AT DOCKS.

Bells tolled in the village churches and minute guns were fired from the naval militia ships in the harbor. The First Light Infantry band of Rhode Island sound ed tne opening notes or a dirge, as the funeral bier, beautifully draped in black satin and eilk American and British flags, moved, on the shoul ders of sturdy soldiers from Rhode Island, Commodore Perry's native state, toward the memorial along the road skirting the picturesque harbor of Put-in-Bay.

Lawyers kept htm up until a late hour laying plans to resist extradition. In another part of the hotel William Travers Jerome coa ferred with Thaw's most recent cap tor, Sheriff Drew, over the court pro cedure to be followed. Jerome and Deputy Attorney General Kennedy of New York reached town last night on a special train. Thaw was to be arraigned today on a complaint charging him with con spiracy in connection with the escape from Matteawan. The case was to come before Police Justice Carr. New York was to ark that. Thaw be xz manded pending receipt of a requisi tion warrant. The Thaw lawyers yes terday took preliminary steps to swear out a writ of habeas corpus In the prisoner's behalf. It was said this morning they might not press this further and, like the Canadian counsel they considered their client safer as ,a prisoner than at large. If freed again Thaw might be seized by John Lanyon, a private detective working with Jerome, and hustled across the New York line as a luna tic. Lanyon is due here today.

DISTRICTS GIVEN AID Denies Having Promised to De liver 2,000,000 Votes in Campaign of 1908. Washlngton, D. C, Sept. 11. Con- tinuing his story before the house lobby committee today, Samuel Gom- pers said since the congressional cam paign of 1010 the 'American Federa tion of Labor's political activity had not been systematic, but rather spo radic. He declared he was opposed to so cialism. "1 believe in doing something; to better things today, not tomorrow," he eaid. Active participation In a cam IJftign, Gompers said, was taken by the federation only when it was requested from labor workers in a district. Final determination on a policy of opposi tion or support by the federation to ward congressional candida'es was made by himself. Vice President O'Connell and Secretary Morrison, he said. IHIKS VOTE PROMISE. Gompers denied he. had promised to--swing the "labor vote" of more than 2,000,000 to anyone in the national Campaign of 1908. He said he could not and wonld not attempt to deliver, that vote. . "No official of the federation can command or order anyone to do any thing," he continued. "They may ad vise, suggest, recommend, that's all." I Mr. Qompeia questioned by bis at torney, Jackson H. Ralston, gave the committee a detailed statement of the aims and purposes of the American Federa'ion of Labor, frankly told of Its efforts through a legislative com mittee to influence congress toward the enactment of legislation favorable to the workers, and said that, in thfs-' effort, opposition of the National As sociation of Manufacturers had beea encountered. "The only evidence that I and my colleagues ever have had as to the ex istence of the National Association of Manufacturers," he added, "was vin dictive antagonism to everything we i advocated, no matter how humane."' TELLS AIMS OF FEDERATION. At the outset of his testimony Mr. Gompers was asked to state the aims of the American Federation of Labor. "It aims," he said, "to relieve the working people from burdensome long hours of toil; to protect them in their work, protest their lives and health, to improve their material, moral, so cial and political standing; to bring about a better condition for the toilers of our country as a reward for services they render to society." Tracing the history of legislation for the benefit of labor, Mr. Gompers claimed credit on behalf of the federa tion for the work of legislative com mittees in Washington and In many states, asserting that all labor legisla tion was constantly being urged upon legislative bodies through argument by representatives of the working people. C lI AX.i: OF MAM FACTl HERS. The witness said the American Man ufacturers' association had always been an anti-union or anti-labor organ ization. 'As a matter of fact," he said, "the National Association of Manufactur ers was not an anti-labor organization until D. M. Parry's declaration in 1903 to the convention of that association at New Orleans. Mr. Parry, as pres ident, had hin report printed. It was a virulent attack on all organized la bor. That report he never read to the convention at New Orleans. From that time the association became anti labor and anti-union." Represen'ative Willis asked Mr. Gompers what relation the American Federation of Labor bore to the Knights of Labor. "The relation," Mr. Gompers replied, "between a living human organism and a corpse." EMERY EMKS HIS TESTIMONY. Mr. Gompers was called at the con clusion of the examination of James A. Emery, counsel for the Council of In dustrial Defense of the National Asso ciation of Manufacturers, who said, w hen asked what he now thoght of the Workman's Protective association, or ganized by Martin M.
