The office and warehouseof Schmidt& Co.. shipping- merchants, at the Dutch settk'ment of Batavia, was at the end of ii long wharf projecting into the harbor. On one side of the wharf tho vatcr was 25 feet deep, and there was room for two ships to unload er discharge cargo. On the other side there Vras a rocky roof eight feet below the surface, which could not be blasted cut without great expense, and 110 craft ever came in on that side unless it was a coaster. The wharf was 5 feet widc.but the long \vwchousti, which stood in the center of it, was only 30 feet wide, tius leav- injr an opon space about it. The office was at the sea end of the warehouse. Below the warehouse cud reached by a rude stairway was a platform »boutten feet square, which was placed there for the convenience of employes who wanted to tr.ke a bath. When the tide was in this platform was a-foot under water; when the tide was out it was thi-ee or four feet above the surface. For n. year aod a UaJf, beginning with 1SG7, a large number of the 30 men employed in office and warehouse had in.ide use of this platform, nnd there jiad not been an accident of any sort. In the summer of 1SC9; at four o'clock in the afternoon, two clerks in the ojlice descended for a swim. They dived from Mie platform tog-ether when reajv, but one of them never came to thu surfaca. When the alnjm was given his body was dragged for, butcould not be found. It was generally believed that a shark had entered the open Flip and seized him while lie was under water, and for several weeks there was no more bathing 1 . The second victim was tihe captnin of a brig consigned to Ihe firm. One day while she was discharging carg-o tho captain heard the story of the myn- terious disappearance. He laughed at the idea of a ruan-eating shark coming into the slip and contended that the clerk had struck his head ag-ajnst a rock in diving- and been so badly hurt that he died by drowning. To prove that the spot was safe he leaped from the platform and swam about for a- quarter of an hour. This was Saturday evening. On Sunday afternoon he tried it again, having one of the alerks 13 compajiion. For the first -five minutes all went well. Then, as the captain climbed upon the platform and dived by himself he romainetl so long under wuter that dis companions raised an alarm. When i:\eral minutes had passed and he did ot reappear hope was abandoned and dra.q-s were ;tt once procured and the body searched for. Close in by the iiouth of tho slip, where.there was a deep hole in the rock, the gnipnels wrought up fragments of the bathing trunk worn by the unfortunate captain, but the body could not beraised. Native livers were offered as high ns $100 to go down and investigate, but not a man would undertake it. Sentinels were >osted to secure the body when it should rise, but nothing was ever seen of it. For a long time Batavia enjoyed what was termed "The Wharf .Mystery." There were various theories as to what -had occurred to disable the two victims, and as to why tbeir bodies could not be recovered, but the whole matter was finally forgotten except by the people, on the wharf, and for several months there was no more bathing from the platform. There was from the slip on the other side, however, whenever it was free of craft. The-water was deep and clear nnd of nn evening there were.a dozen men and boys swimming- about and enjoying themselves. Not one of them met with any sort of adventure, nnd rn time the employes of the office nnd warehouse began to make use of the platform aga-in, For a time nothing happened. One morning the chief cl-erk, whose name -was Henry Littlefield, arrived a few minutes earlier than usual ajid announced to the porter that he was going down on the platform for a bath. The porter saw him descend with soap nnd towels, and heard him .splashing about for a time:, Half an hour passed away, nnd as Littlefield did not return the porter went-down to look for him. and failed to find him. It was high tide and his clothing" was hang-ing" on a hook out of reach of ''the 'water,'but ns for the mnn himself^ he haddisappeared us! mysteriously as the other two. Thu -alarm was given and the drags-brought Out, but nothing was grappled. A diver wr.s found to go down in his armor, and he made nn exhaustive search of the slip nnd the deep hole, He made just one find nnd nothiug could be "proved by--that. -From the bottom: of the :hole he-brought out a hwmnn skull which' was. as ck-an as a; billiard ball and had evidently been in the water for a long time. It was'' finally identified by the teeth as the' skull of the first victim of this strange' ttiystery.-batithe identifications-did not' prove by what means the'c-lerk came to his death. Watchmen were employed night and .day,, boats, were stationed, here", and, there., but .Littlefleld's bod.y did.npt rise to'the surface. A reward of'$3;000 wns o'ffeV"ri for the recovery of 1-liD. body; ar.;I i....r a'rev.-ard of $UtM» was oil'urecl to. anyone who could soivc the mystery.' Af tcr.two or tJiroc months the fate of the last victim passed from 'the public mind, and by ardor of Schmid-t it Co. no one was permitted to make further use of the plat form under the office. In the year 1ST4 I was E:ute of a cnndiiJwood trader visiting ilic inlands In the .lava sen. and when fully loaded wo sailed for Batavia to offer our carp- to Schmidt & -Co. We had no difficult in making a Kite, and our craft, (Iran ing- less than seven, feet of water, wa hauled into the shallow slip to . di charge cargo. We entered the slip of Saturday afternoon aad wore cot t begin discharging cargo unlil JJo-nda; morning. Our crew consisted of si men. The three seamen and cook wer Lascars. Sunday morning about tei o'clock the captain and 1 left the craf to take a stroll through the city Scarcely had we left the wharf whe the cook and seamen disrobed uni plunged into the waters of the slip fo a swim. After awhile they started on a rue out into the harbor, but as they passe over the deep hole at the mouth of th slip, -the cook suddenly disappeared The two seamen on the vessel and three or four loungers on the wharf al agreed that something sudden-lv flashed out of the wuter, curled n.roun the cook's neck, and drew his head under waler just us he, was fryin out in terror. Thnt "something" black was about. the size of, an inch rope, verj flexible, and it wns moved with grea swiftness. The man was p'-illed down so quickly that no one could be sur that he saw what he saw, U'e spent the entire afternoon dragging the slip an ro-wiug about the harbor, but as in the three other cases no trace of the bodj was found. One day while we were \viiitir.g 1 fo the excitement to calm down, am while strolling "bout the wharf, a puf of wind hlew my hat into the slip. The tide was cooing in just theu :md near !y at liip-h w;iter, und the hat was car ried under the wharf and bdg-ec against the f&itform. To recover it '. went down the long disused stairway There was at least teji inches of water over the platform, and the hat hat 1 caught on a splinter at the corner near est the deep hole. I splashed Mi-rough the water and bent over to grab for ray heQdjrear. Just as my fingers seized it sometliiag darted out of the water and whipped around my s'houl ders. Close at hand was a spile, with two braces from the pla-t-forru secured to it. \s I instinctively started up f I was drawn into the crotch matle by these bnaees ajid threw out my iinnds and got u firm hold. I cried out in alarm as 1 was drawn forward, but I had no idea of what was happening-. My firsl thought was that the platform hac given way under my feet. . It was a. matter of 15 seconds before a aecoat: something 'darted from the wster fell across my shoulders. I saw it as it crime, aaid insta.ntly realized that itwnf cue of tlic tent.tel'es of a larg-e octopus. I now screamed for help, and as I caller! out a third tentacle shot forward and struck ine at the bend of the knees. My cries raised a.n instant alarm on the wharf. Inside of five minutes a dozen men, mostly sailora, were down on. the Ktairs and platform and ready to render assistance, The clothing I had on consisted of a woolen shirt and a pair of trousers of rather heavy cloth, Owing to this the air cups of the tentacles did not strike my bare, flesh, nor could they get it firm grip. While 'the first one darted at me held roe tight to the braces, the two others played tronnd nnd over roe like whiplashes. As the men came running clown and saw what nature of creature had attacked me, they hesitated for a, moment to approach. Then Ihree sailors sprang- forward -with drawn knives and began 1o cut and slosh, .-Vs they did so a fourth an'rl fifth tentacle darted out of the water and ia.slied them, and two more men came forward with sharp hatchets. From the time tjie first .man reached ino to the end of the .bn.tt.le was a .period of ton minutes, and- every minute was hard work. Every one of t-he five tentacles was severed time and again, but so fierce nnd determined was the octopus that he actually rose to the surface bcKitle the pkitforra nnd struck at the tliiftin? f«et of Uia men with his horrible beak. The loppin'g" off of his nrms disabled him, but he would have mad.; his osc-apc just, t.ho tame if a man had not come dov.-n on the platform with a shotgun loaded with buckshot and fired- the ch.irge into his bead. As T rlung to-th.8 braces one of the tentacles crossed my bsre.wuist, but thit was the only Kpot where the fl«sh was- touched. 'Oiia of .the suckers or aireups fastened to the flesh and had to be cut :i.way bit by bit. The fueling wns as if a hot Iron had been laid on. While ro Wood--w«s drown • a great blister -appetu'<;d.

Idean. [COPTHICHT. 1S9G.] You ask me how to run a city? I will answer the question frankly. The author of the 'Declaration of Independence suad that government was governed the best which was governed the least. I cordially indorse hi.s senti- inen-ta, The proposition will apply with e<jual force ,'to. slate, couuty or city. Wo have toomajiy self-constituted rulers now.Tdays attempting to run our cities. The men elecitud by the people to direct their affairs should do it, and not a lot of shrieking, hysterical fanatics who are responsible to nobody but themselves. \\'e need a new Declaration of Independence tc free ourselves of the Park- hursts, Gerrys and Godwins, wliohave fastened themselves upon the neck of the body politic. Park'luirst might do in a Purit.anteal New England village, Gerry in Russia and Godkin in his native 'heath, the County Wieklow, Ire,- li.nd; but they are all out of place here. They are- all miscarriages in American politics. The mayor of an American city, elected bv American citi/ens, native or mat- THE CZAR OF LONG ISLAND CITY. ura-lized, should rule it, and not be-hampered in, the discharge of bis duljes by lh« interference of what my frienJ, Tlionias 0. Platt, fitly characterized a lot o£ "outsule busybodies." If the mayor is found to be corrupt, incompetent or derelict in his duty, the remedy is-simple: Impe-jch him. That can be done by preferriag- charges before the governor of the state, andliave him adjudicate upoix the matter after both parties to the controversy have been hcord. But when the chief magistrate of 11 city is struggling with the tisk of govern Ing it— nud it is not ha)I so easy ns some people imagine—he should not be boflhered. by a lot.of shfll- low-poted cranks, bog-us reformers or political pulpiteers, who are-only actuated for the most part by an insane craving for notoriety or a greedy desire to get at the loaves and fishes. As they ua-e generally little fellows, wearing- a six hat and a ten shoe, I presurau they must- do something to bring themselves before the public, c-Ise tupy would fade from sight This is the only t/heory on which I ''.n.n account for tbeir constantly, ridiculous behavior. . I believe in home rule for cities, I think i't is perfectly absurd, for instance, that u hayseed legislature, composed for the moat part of men from rustic communities who Itnow nothing of the needs of a grent cHy like New York and itsndjncentsisler cities.Brock- ]yn and Long Island City, sliould teil us what we. should eat an-d drink on Sunday and pass laws to such an' ffect. If they do not want a glass o£ Kgcr on Sunday it is no reason;why hey, should .prevent their brethren oJE tie metropolis and adjoining cities 'rom taking one. The workman in the ity, be he clerk, salesman, bricklayer, Boilermaker or what not, who has only one holiday in the week, and that Sun- Ony, should not be ooiripe-lled-to mope at -home and go dry because theiarmer vanta to go tliroug-Ji that act of abnegation. The hypocrisy of such a law s apparent when a man like Warner Miller, of ilerkimer and Xew York, for Umon, who wen-t bowling through the wilderness last fall about the 'maintenance of the American Sabbath," could take his tipple ever}'Sun- lay at t)*> Union League .-while one. of lis wood pulp clerks would—if Jn :ouldn't get by the policeman stationed it a saloon side door—go thirsty. Warner Miller reminds me of a story Jniti-d States Senator Vance told of his •olleague Matt Ransom. He espied, at DC-time, :n darky-coming--clown Pennsylvania av.cmie,,'Washing-ton, \yitha stotely looking horse, enveloped all over with a blase blanket on which was en- jj-ratted in large red letters the words 'Matt Hansom."

"Can he run?" asked Vance. "No. sail, he ain't much on runnin' "Can he trot?" "No. sah, he can't trot for sour ap pies." • • "'What pood is he then, and why d you c;ill him after Senator Hansom demanded Vance in surprise. "Well, sail," replied the colored g-en tleinan after a moment's thought, "h oan't.-trot, or ho can't run, but he's i pow'ful good looker and a splendii prancer." That hits the nail on the head as re pards Warner Miller. He was once in the whirligig: of "politics, thrown jnt< the United States senate by eomi strang-e freak of fortune. Ever sinn that joke was perpetrated (Conklin; called it the "irony of fate") Miller ha: been a powerful (food looker and i splendid prancer. lie will be nothing more. But I started to tell "how a city sliould be governed. In the first place, the mayor, elected by the people, should be held directly responsible to the people He; should have the power,to appoint al! commissions, such as the .police, fire, school and ch'arity boards, police justices, constables and the' like. As far as possible the commissioners should be single headed, or if that be impossible, the mayor should be ex-officio t member of oil these .commissions, anc have the deciding vote. This will apply especially to the board of estimate and apportionment. Over the police the mayor sbould-haye absolute control so as to prevent oppression or blackmail. Under this scheme of government tlic public expenditures .could be held to the lowest limit, and ;if they were, not the roayor.could be held di- •rectly responsible to his constituents and be compelled to answer to them when be would again come up for their suffrages. -He could in no way shirk or o.void the issue. i Personally I believe in the widest lib erty being accorded to the citizen, but if there are laws in the statute book, no matter how obnoxoius, they.should be enforced untJl relief can be afforded. The best way to repeal an arbitrary law is to enforce it. By liberty I do not mam license. I believe, for'example, that a. man should be privileged to enjoy Sunday, the. only holiday UQ men out of 100 have in a week, according to his own bent. He should be allowed to go to church or contrary^ just as he pleases, ife should be permitted to take himself or family to a^ picnic excursion, and .take .his beer or toddy the some us. Waraw Miller or Teddy Bbosevelt do at their clubs. I believe that respectable sa- Joons should be permitted to keep open on Sunday after church hours and stay open until one a. m. on Monday, the ' same as week days. A saloon keeper who would sell liquor to a drunken maa or a minor should have his license broken.,Intoxication should be checked on .Sunday,I believe in giving honest sport full play. Boxing, with restrictions, should be' permitted the same as football,.golf tennis, rowing or horse racing. Two trained 'athletes should.notbe prevented from displaying their skill.with big fiverpunce. gloves by the silly cry; of .people,.who. ,know nothing aboiit;.the .game.' ',' ,.'' ....' ".'..' . . ' • 'I further believe that if speculation, "of 'gambling, or call it what you will, Is : legal V.. the country, or a.certain '.part^of a.city; jt is legal in every partof a-city, with a.few exceptions,, such as the proximity, of Bchoolhouscsj or churches. For example, if a uian;-c|in bet. at the racetrack, .1 don't see why b? c'aii't'liet on a horse in o hotel cafe m'n nool room in the citv. If a mau "rut-urtrs-" in vvaii .sireft, DUJ _ . say, for a fall in price, in other words* beis that the presentpricewillfjodown.. I don't see why he cau't bet in a poolroom up town that McKinley won't be; election in November, or that our Engv lish friends won't -whallop Yale at),Henley in July. 1£ speculation or gambling is toler^ nted in one place it should be permitted! in another. With this restriction,, however, no minor or man of smalt means and large, family should be aK lowed to place a bet of any kind! If the pool room keeper or other gambler take their money he should, be compelled to give.it fcack, whether they win or lose. That would be punishment enough for the first offense. If be repeat it drive him out of the town. I beHeve in repressing 1 vice in every possible form. There are some evils, however, •which cannot be entirely eradicated, Dr. Parkhurst to the contrary notwithstanding:. Principal among- these is the social evil. I spoke about extending- to the cltN zen the -widest liberty. I propose to exercise a freeman's right just now myself. I have been treated outrageously by a so-called democratic convention in this state. I am the mayor of Long Island City, and the recognized democratic leader in Queen's county. .-Myself ftftdl lieutenants were refused seats in that convention, aud a sinall lot of kickers given the seats which belonged to us. To show the leaders of that state convention that freemen can not be trodden upon I propose to run. for governor of jfew York this fall'and,will nominate* full state ticket. I will'be nominated by petition. All that is needed is -"5,000 signatures to thnt petition, and I can get 8,000 in Long- Island City alone...•.I.will. be indorsed by the Shepherd democracy of Brooklyn, who elected William J. Gaynor, supreme court justice, and Charles A. Schiereh> mayor of Brooklyn.- Yet-their seats were given in the state convention to Hugh McLaughlin and his lieutenants vTiom they defeated at the polls the year previously. .They feel just as bitter as Ido. Besides these. I will fcave the'independent democracy of New York, who are opposed to .Tammany methods, at my back.. All,told I will have 25,'000 or more names signed ta my petition for nomination. If I was ever elected governor I would run the Btate on the same principles as I would a city, the greatestgt>od fortha greatest number. My first act as governor would be to pardon John Y. McKane, once termed the "czar of Gravesend." He was sent to prison for crimes never committed, but which others who hold high places and carry high ieads countenanced and-encouraged. I have don» my best to show yon here 3ow to run a city. Next fall Twill shove a few arrogant lenders how they can't, run a state. PATRICK J. GLEASOK Promotion 1» oi»nx or iMiKi^nu.
