MAYOK GAYNOR AT HOME. : Everybody will appreciate the eager 'desire of Mayor Gaynor.to reach his summer home at St. James, L. I.; everybody will rejoice that he was able to undertake the journey and that he reached the shady retirement of Deepwells without mishap. He cannot expect there the constant and skilled attention which 'Was constantly at his command in the Hoboken Hospital, and which was essential to his speedy convalescence, but when the crisis has been passed there is no restorative influence that can equal the accustomed serenity of the home atmosphere, and the familiar associations that cluster around it. The worst and inevitable feature of the wisest hospital treatment is the per- vading atmosphere of invalidism that is inseparable from it, and that can not fail to have a depressing influence upon even the most sanguine and optimistic of patients. It may be confidently assumed that the hospital physicians would not give their consent to the removal of the Mayor until the change involved no apparent danger, and the public may safely indulge in the sanguine hope' that tho removal of the distinguished patient to his homevwni te followed by a steady improvement in his condition. We are all glad that Mayor Gaynor has been able to return to his home, and that the danger line has been safely passed. The city needs him, but ! he has earned a long holiday, and it only remains to hope that he may so far restrain his impulsive energy a3 to take all the rest from the cares of office that his condition requires. THE PKEfjIDEXT'S PLATFORM. The letter defining the issues of the champaign which President Taft has i addressed to Chairman William B. McKinley, of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, is made public to-day. The President attaches little importance to the differences of opinion on minor matters which have made themselves evident within the Republican party ranks. "The question," he says, "will be not what complexion of Republicanism one prefer., but whether it is better for the country to have the Republican party control the legislation for the next two years, and further redeem its promises, or to enable a Democratic majority in the House either to interpose a veto to Republican measures, or to formulate and pass bills to carry out Democratic principles. Differences m within the party, were manifested in the two sessions of the present Congress, and yet never in its history has the Republican party passed and become responsible for as much useful and progressive legislation." ihe President does not profess to regard the Payne tariff as a perfect Instrument, but he claims that it was B f.'iijnnrt rr;ic,,t,'jVt1., ' , .v-...., tii. aaui aim that it fully redeemed the pledges contained in the Republican platform, of 1908. Of. the results that are expected from the operation of the Tariff Commission President Taft. says: Perhaps more important than anv one feature of the operative part of the Tariff law is that section which enables the Executive to appoint a Tariff Commission or Board to secure the needed information for the proper amendment and perfection of the law The difficulty in fixing the proper tariff rafes in accord with the principle stated in the Republican platform is in securing reliable evidence as to the difference between the cost of production at home and the cost of production abroad. The bias of the manufacturer seeking protection and of the importer opposing it weakens the weight of their testimony. Moreover, when we understand that the cost of production differs in one country abroad from that of another, and that -jit changes from year to year and from month to month, we must realize that the precise difference in cost of production sought for is not capable of definite ascertainment, and that' all that even the most scientific person can do in his investigation is. after consideration of many Xacts which be learns, to exercise his best judgment In reaching a conclusion. The commission, however, already selecteol and at work, is a commission of dlsiiKerested persons, who will ascertain the facts, not In a formal hearing by examination and cross-examination idf i witnesses, but by the kind of investigation that statisticians and scientific investigators use. When the. commission completes its work, either on the entire .tariff or on any of the schedules in reshect to which Issue has , arisen, and tho work of the commission shows that the present tariff Is wrong and should be changed, I expect to bring the matter' to the attention of the Congress, with a view to. its amendment of the tariff in that. particular. ' t )f course, this will he Impracticable unless Congress itself shall adopt the parliamentary rule, as I hope it will, that a bill to amend one schedule of the tariff may not be subject to a motion to amend by adding changes in other schedules. ' It may be taken for granted that the professional stand-patters will howl with as near a simulation of rage as they can safely assume at this clear and convincing statement of the advantages that may be expected to follow the adoption of this system. but the Times does not doubt that the experiment' will be successful, and that It will' become a permanent feature of our fiscal system. ' On other questions the President's letter is equally explicit, and satisfactory. He recapitulates the work that has been done in various departments of legislation by the first session of the present Congress, and on that record of accomplishment he bases the demand that a Republican majority should be returned to the Mixty-second Congress to carry out the work that has been so well begun. It is a strong and a strengthening appeal. COXQl'EST or Tin: Alii. A great step in advance alike in the development of wireless telegraphy and of aerial navigation was taken on Saturday when Aviator Jle-Curdy flashed a wireless 'message from the sky above Barren Island to a waiting operator at Sheepshcad Bay. This is the first time in the history of aviation that' it has been made the medium for th operation . of ,JIar-coni's great discovery, and it is no easy matter foj the. layman to determine what the future holds in this direction. That it will be developed into an instrument of practical utility can be realized by the dullest imagination; In any case, it is obvious that it can scarcely fall to reduce the perils of aerial navigation by enabling the aeronaut at once to make his exact location and the difficulties he may encounter known to those who can hasten to his rescue in time of peril. The Held of exploration and of discovery of the twentieth century obviously lies In the air. What further developments await us not even the daring imagination of a Verne could predict. . - TA1T AS A PEACEMAKER. There are two features in the Republican situation in this State that are full of encouragement to those who wish for Republican success at the polls. One is the evident purpose of the saner and more reasonable ele ments on both sides to find a basis of agreement, as is exemplified in the position taken by Vice President Sherman, whose recent warm eulogy of President Taft shows that there is no lurking resentment in his mind over the statement of the President in regard to. the negotiations that pre- ceded the late meeting of the State Committee; the other is the evident desire of the President to confine the campaign in this State to a discussion of the work done and yet remaining to be done by the Republican party and to eliminate as far as may be the purely personal and factional element" from, the arena of debate. There will bo time enough afrter No- vember to- decide all factional, con troversies. Even without -tjjrect pri- marics the Brooklyn TTmes believe that the Republican voters in the State will be able this year to secure the selection of committees and of candidates who will be fairly repre- I senative of the will of the majority, and that with no offensive projection of personal issues into the primary contests. The Republicans still have the sympathy and confidence of a majority of the voters of the State, and so long as they keep the personal, factional 'Question in the background there is nothing to stand in the wav of a renewed victory, .' - ' Queer thing about the Kaiser. As long as Theodore Roosevelt,, keeps quiet there is nothing heard from the) German Emperor, but just as soon as Roosevelt gets his warpaint on William starts in and Germany is turned upside down. "I'll give them all the fight they want" invariably arouses an answering echo from Prussia- Korea is no more. Henceforth we may send our, missionaries to Cho-Sen. which is supposed to mean "The Land of the Quiet Morning," or something of that sort. It is not stated that the Koreans had anywlld anxiety to become "the Cho-Sen People." ' ' JIX'iLES OF TO-DAY. Bill Bryan says he will not run I'or President again.: .... Though this decision is most wise. It must have caused him pain. He does nut tell us why he quits, We do not care to know. It simply tills us full of joy -. To learn that it is so; TAFT, TO MeKIXLEY.

HI 0 i CITY I h HALL The Barnes Idea. ! Here's a tale hat is told to assist in j understanding the attitude of William I Hames, Jr., the militant master of Albany ''ounty, on that weather-worn Issue o' I direct primaries: i. A fellow from a sordid Republican district thought himself entitled to the nom ; illation for Assembly, and he called on I Boisterous Billy to tell him so, and listen . i to what he had to say about it. Tearing ! himself away from official duty as Sur veyor of the Port, the leader thought it I over and shook his head, signifying that the applicant had wasted carfare; on the call. 'What? Nothing doing?" cried the would-be candidate. "You shake your head and "that settles it? Well, I'll tell you. Mr. Barnes, this is just the. kind of thing that is creating all. this sentiment for dln-ei nominations! "Yes," roared Billy in reply, forgetting his Harvard training. "lou're. damn I right it If. Just this kind of thing and nothing else is causing all the commotion. A bunch of soieheads that find tnem- selves unable to get Jobs for the asking, and so they want the legal right' to nom inate themselves I have no power over the delegates, exeent that they are willing to accept my advice, and 1 ad vise against von and all like you. mat ought to oe airen enougn. i Citiautomobilitis. The latest fad among municipal officials who use motor cars at olty expense Is to ride to and from their homes and offices every rlny in the machines. In the garage under Brooklyn Bridge there Is a standing direction to the chauffeurs of several departments to call at 9 o'clock in the ornlng at the homes of the various om- cials and drive them down to amy, while the cars are always kept busy until 4 in the afternoon, when the "own ers" travel homeward, i nus. in oiuei that the department heads may ride in fitting state the chauffeurs are compelled tocall at the garage early, take the car back to the city or summer home of the officials, drive back again to the neighborhood of the bridge, reversing the per formance in the evening. Comptroller Prendergast uses the sub way, though there are half a dozen cars available In the Finance Department, and Mayor Gaynor either walks or uses a private machine.. Chief Engineer Creuzbar, of Borougn President Steers', staff,- holds that an engineer should be permitted to use a city machine whether on business or pleasure, because he is always observant of the Conditions ot the streets, and this kind of traveling keeps him well posted on all needed Improvements. A Publicity Problem. The Special Committee nf the Board of Estimate which is arranging for the big budget exhibition this autumn are in a quandary over the proposal to hang a big campaign banner in front of the Tefft-Weller building on Broadway, where the exhibit Js to ho held, advertising the work. Mayor Gaynor consistently vetoed every Aldermanlc resolution that came before htm to permit the swinging of advertising transparencies over Broadway. The committee are extremely des'ii'ous' of putting up the banner, but they dislike to embarrass Acting Mayqr Mltchel by putting it up to him. The matter is being held in abeyance, pending the return of Mayor Gaynor, when the special legislation will be re-ciuppted by the Comptroller and Borough President McAneney. The Executive is expected to smite this suggestion, just as though it emanated from a purely private source. Roosevelt's Interest. According to confidants of Theodore Roosevelt, the original responsibility for the present strenuous state of the Republican organization, rests not on the shoulders of County Chairman Grlscom, Naval Officer Kracke, Collector Loeb and other insurgent lleutenants in this city. The Colonel, say the wise ones, desired the the position of temporary Chairman of tho Convention no more than he aspired to be a sachem of Tammany Hall, but the antl-organlzatlon . men persuaded him that he would harmonize all factions in the party, and by .sounding the keynote of the campaign In opening the convention, would wedge' himself actively into the partisan contest and lead tlie Republicans to certain victory. This vision was too alluring to be resisted, and the Colonel, never for a moment anticipating any opposition, authorized Grlscom to nominate him. What followed only served to arouse the battle blood of the Rough Rider, and now he is fighting for the love of the fray, smiting every head that rises, irrespective of creed or party. The Mayor's Doctor Bills. Intimates of Mayor Gaynor assert that he will not take advantage of the Aldermanlc suggestion that the city authorize a bond Issue to meet the medical expenses entailed by Gallagher's bullet. Mayor Gaynor is financially well able to meet the cost himself, and is of sufficient independence to do so, even if it did mean a monetary hardship to him. A veteran of the Corporation Counsel's office told a Times reporter this afternoon that if the Executive so desired he could easily amass a fortune practising law while serving the city. There is no charter provision against such a course, and there is a fair precedent for It. In bygone days, when the Mayors of New York were generally merchants, none of them quit private 'business, and in more recent' days there was an Executive who used to knock off work in City Hall early every day in order to get back to his drygoods house to look after private interests there. . "WET PARSON'S" FAREWELL. Mr. Wasson Will Now Devote All His Time to Fighting Pro-' hibition. (Stieclal to the Brooklyn Times.) RIVERHEAU, X. "., Aug. 29.-The RFev. William A. Wasson, pastor of Grace Church, in this village, preached his farewell sermon yesterday and has gone to his farm in Mattituck to continue his campaign against prohibition. Many of th& old i-hurch members were conspicuous fy their absence from the services. Mr. Waspon's whole sermon was in defense of his position on the license question.' He said that before he would give UP his work in favor of license he would break stones in the street. He said that he had written a book to expose prohibition and, that he was giving up his pastorate so that he could devote his entire time to the work. "The Man from Ireland.

UNUSUAL HAPPENINGS IN EUROPEAN CAPITALS Written Leaves, Found in Asia Con-tain Passages in Language to Which No Clue Has Yet Been Found,. LONDON, Aug. 29. Remarkably interesting documents from Central Asia have been acquired by the Asiatic Society, of Pengal. They consist of five leaves of brownish-yellow paper measuring UxBi Inches. The true significance of these five leaves, the genuineness of which cannot he doubted, is that scholars are here confronted with a number of con secutlve passages in a language to which no clue has yet been found, and of which hitherto only fragments have been res cued from the sands of Central Asia. It Is quito possible that, by means of these five leaves, an Important literary lan guage, of whose existence the world has had no suspicion, may be rescued from oblivion. The paging on the reverse ot each leaf shows that they once formeel part of an extensive work. The Oldest Woman. Believed to be the oldest woman In the world, a peasant living in the village ot Pavelsko, Bulgaria, was born, according to the register in the Greek Orthodox Church there In 1784. The woman, whose name is Baba Vasilka. 'has spent one hundred years of her life working In the fields. She how HVes on an income contributed by her descendants, each of whom and they number over a hundred-down to her great-great-grandchildren, contribute a small sum for her support. Mme. Vasllka is in full possession of her senses. Her eldest son is well on in the nineties and still works in the fields. These cases are remarkable even among the long-lived Bulgarian peasants. Soldiers' Suicide Club. The existence of a suicide club amon the soldiers of Nuremberg garrison has been discovered. Recently a private shot himself for no apparent reason. His death has been followed by that of a lance corporal. The second tragedy seemed as mysterious as the first until among' the dead man's effects a letter was found statlnsr that he and the nre- vious suicide belonged to a club eacfW member of which was bound by an oath to die by his own hand. A rigorous search by the, military authorities has failed to reveal the identity of the remaining memberssof this society. Moving a Church Tdwer. After standing on the same spot for 600 years the beautiful, tower of the church of Bocholt, Belgium, has reached the new site arranged for it when it was decided to lengthen the nave of the church westward. The tower has covered the Journey of thirty feet in about ten days. The great mass of masonry, weighing- nearly 3,000 tons, was moved along machinery constructed by two American engineers, and the spectacle attracted many visitors. Strikers in "The Tempest." At a little town in the south of France a performance of Shakespeare's "Temp est" was recently interrupted by a strike of stage hands. The thunder-and light ning did not crash and flash as ar arranged, and, when the manager went behind the stage, he found the men who should have been engaged in making the waves roll standing Idle wit.t their arms croscd. Remonstrances and cajoling were in vain. It was a question of ar rears of wages. The matter was at length adjusted to the satisfaction of the strikers, and the tempest was resumed. A Queen Sued. An interesting case with a creditor of Queens Maria Pia. King Manoel's grandmother, as plaintiff has just come before the High court in Lisbon. The creditor'. a prominent draper, sued her Majesty for $20,000 owing for dresses. Counsel for the Queen pleaded that as a member of the royal family her Majesty could not be sued personally. The lower courts ad mitted this; but me creditor appealed, and the higher court has decided that Queen Maria Pia Is a subject and that the privilege in question is held only by the King. The decision has caused considerable surprise, for nothing similar has ever "happened before in. Portugal. Chinese Women in Kilts.. Dr. Geil, an American traveler, Just re turned to England from a year's Journey In China, found an aboriginal tribe whose women wear a sort ot Kin. tie was struck by a general feeling of resentment against the "baby" Emperor, by the progress of modern Institutions, the preparation of an enormous army, and the absence of poppy (opium) cultivation. Belies of the Armada. - The 6careh for the sunken Armada treasure-ship Florencia In Tobermory Bay, Argyllshire, begun some weks ago has already been rewarded by some interesting discoveries. Two gun-barrels, of small calibre, two powderftasks, several small cannon balls, and what appears to be a scabbard have been recovered. Two coins were also picked up In a trawl, and will be forwarded to the British Museum for, examination. To Product Advertising Pantomime. An' "advertisement pantomime" is at present in course ot preparation in Berlin. This novel form of publicity is being adopted by one of the large retail establishments of the capital, which has commissioned a' distinguished composer to write the music of the production. The plot of the pantomime deals with two poor children found starving by a fairy on Christmas Eve. She proceeds to take them, in a series of scenes, through the various departments of the great shop, .riving them presents. Comic characters, clowns, and a ballet lend humorous relief. The pantomime will probably be produced at one of the Berlin theatres, customers at the shop receiving free tickets. Cure by Hypnotism. - Hypnotism is being successfully used to restore to sanity Frau von Schonebeck- W'eber, the notable figure ot the Allen stein Garrison tragedy. It was during her. long-drawn-out tf-ial on a charge of complicity In the murder of her first hus band. Major ' von Schonebeck. by her lover. Capt. von Goben Owho committed suicide in tr!son), that the woman became demented. She has been living In a private nursing home during the la3t month, and under the supervision of a leading German nerve physician, Prof. Eulenburg, she has been dally hypnotized. The result of the "suggestion" to which she has been subjected is remarkable, "and the physicians state that after twelve months' complete rest they have no doubt but that the formerly demented woman will be completely cured. Swords for German Firemen. Another Instance of the German's national passion, incomprehensible to foreigners, for assuming military accoutrements on the'imallest excuse occurs in a royal decree recently published. The edict confers upon all chief firemen the right of wearing an officer's sabre with a gold sword-belt, provided that during their military service yiey reached the rank of a . sword-bearlng non-commissioned officer. Though the officers of the corps, being retired military officers already carry sldearms, the ordinary firemen muBt now be added to the vast number of German officials who carry about with them swords AMUSEMENTS.
