DROP THE RAGE
Lincoln-Roosevelt League, His
Main Support, Goes
Back on Him.
SAYS HE HAS NO SHOW
AkB Him to Throw Support to Tay
lor Ryan Left With No Support
From Any Faction He
Refuses to Talk.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 19. (Special.)
The Lincoln-Roosevelt League, composed
of the anti-machine Republicans of Cal
ifornia, addressed a letter to Daniel
Ryan, Republican candidate for Mayor
of San Francisco, today, requesting that
he withdraw from the race in favor of
Dr. Taylor, the candidate of the Demo
, crats and Good Government League.
The letter takes special significance
from the fact that Ryan Is vice-president
of the league. It is unlike any other
political document in that it is not
couched in honeyed words of diplomacy
but In unadorned language tells Ryan
that he has no chance ot election and
adds that his candidacy Is bound to in
jure Taylor's chances to a dangerous de
gree. In conclusion, the letter calls upon
Ryan to "show his patriotism" by step
ping down and out. Ryan refused to
night to discuss the letter, but his
friends asserted that it was too late to
League Ryan's Mainstay.
The Llncoln-Rooyevelt League was or
ganized a few months ago in California
to combat the corrupt influence or the
Southern Pacific in the politics of the
state. At that time Ryan was working
to defeat Herrln at the San Francisco
primaries, and became one of the main
props of the new league. He counted on
its support, and in fact this has been his
mainstay so far in his candidacy. The
league lias remained silent up to this
' time. Its officers had hoped that Ryan
would of his own accord draw out of the
race. When they became convinced, how
ever, that Ryan was not Inclined to step
aside, they decided on vigorous measures,
and the letter was the result.
Leaves Him Xo Support.
This action leavjis Ryan without a
following. He entered the campaign as
the opponent of machine politics. He has
denounced ithe railroad crowd, and of
course has forfeited their support. Now
he is deprived of all that was left to
him. To add to the woes of the young
Republican, a Taylor . Republican Club
was formed today in Ryan s own district
It is composed of the Republicans who
supported Ryan at the primaries, but who
are displeased at his failure to withdraw
In favor of Dr. Taylor. This club is in
the Fortieth District, Ryan's stronghold
actual members it will include benefac
tors paying annual subscriptions or mak-.
ing a single donation... as well as honor
ary members drawn from the leading rep
resentatives of science.
In addition to the central or interna
tional bureau, it will have national of
fices in the different countries. The for
mer has been installed at the Vatican
Observatory, under the management of
Father Halgen, who is intrusted with the
execution of v the scheme. The object of
the institution Is to promote the progress
of science in all its branches. These are
divided into groups namely, theological
science and the auxiliaries of theology,
juridical social and economic sciences,
historical science, with its subsidiary
branches and philology. The institution
will organize competitions and grant sub
sidies to students and savants.
The Echo de Paris mentions the natural
sciences as the fourth category in the sci
entific labors of the new institution,
which, it says, intends to hold both na
tional and international congresses an
nually. In encouraging such an institute
the pontiff remains faithful to the spirit
of his encyclical, which has the tendency
to prevent exegetlsts from formulating
doctrines opposed to revelation under the
pretext of adapting them to modern Ideas.

TAYLOR DISLIKES THE BAXXER
Orders Campaign Advertising Re
moved Favor Him, 10 to 8.
SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 19. (Special.)
Mayor Taylor has taken offense at the
stringing of a banner across Market
street at Third which bears the legend:
"Vote for Mayor Taylor." He ordered
the president of the Board of Public
Works to see that It was removed.
The Mayor gave as reason for his or
der that the placing of the banner across
the street was contrary to an ordinance,
and in addition he objected to the word
ing of the legend as being a personal ap
peal for him rather than for the cause
of good government.
One ot the first bets to be made on the
election was arranged today, when J1000
was deposited with Tom Corbett to be
placed on Taylor at the odds of 10 to 8.
During the evening a part of this sum
was covered. Larger sums have been of
fered at the odds which had been quoted
(5 to 3), without finding any takers. One
man has $10,000 which he is anxious to.
place on Mayor Taylor against the field,
if It can be done at reasonable odds.

Ingenious French Cripple Shoots
Himself With Revolver.
PARIS. Oct. 19. (Special.) One of th
most remarkable suicides ever recorded
has taken place in Paris. A man with
out arms succeeded In shooting himself
with a revolver. For some time the po
lice refused to believe that such a sui
cide was possible, but medical examlna

The armless man was named Onillon.
He was 61 years old and a widower. He
lived alone. One of his arms was ampu
tated some years ago as the result of an
accident; the other was cut off close to
the elbow a few months aso, owing TO
medical Teasons. He made a precarious
living by the sale of objects in the street.
He had a son who for some time past
has been in prison at Chalons-sur-Marno.
This son was released the other day
with about 11.75 in his pocket, which he
had earned as good-conduct money while
in prison. His first obtect was to see his
f iffher, and he spent all his money in
paying his fare to Paris. Without losing
any time, he went from the station
his father's residence, eager to meet him
once again. Arrived there, he knocked
repeatedly at the door, but could obtain
no response. Becoming alarmed he broke
open the door -nd entered. He struck a
light, and, to his horror, saw his father
lying Inanimate at the side of his bed.
He rushed across to him and found that
he was dead. Running into the street.
he called for help, and several gandaxmes
came to Ills assistance. A doctor was
hurriedly summoned, and a thorough ex
amlnatlon of the body was made.
The armless man was lifted' to his bed.
As this was being done, a revolver fell
from his clothes. Careful examination
disclosed the fact that there was no con
fusion on his body, nor was there any evl
dence in the room of a struggle having
When the revolver was examined it was
found that two chambers had been dis
charged. Curiously enough, these were
not consecutive chambers. Between the
discharged chambers there was an inter
val of two that were undischarged. The
dead man's watch and other small pos
sessions were round on the mantelpiece,
and $4.75 was still In his trouser pockets.
The mystery that puzzled the police was
How did the armless man discharge the
revolver?' it Is stated that he was an
extraordinarily resourceful man. For
Instance, he was In the habit of unlock
ing his door every night with his own
latchkey. He did this with his teeth,
The autopsy proved that it was by means
of his teeth and his feet that he com

the kind we sell for $33.00. Maybe you haven't that amount of money to spare. The -average man hasn't, an d that is why we do business with thousands of people
on the installment credit plan. Well, your next move is to come to us. You find the range you want and pay us $1.00 cash on t. Then we will be glad to make
arrangements so you can pay the balance in weekly or monthly installments. How does that strike you? Isn't that reasonable enough? 13 $1.00 a week more than
you can stand especially considering that you have the stove or whatever you may buy, from the very moment you show your good faith by paying $1.00 in cash?
It's nothing but common sense applied to the furniture business. It makes it possible for the young man to furnish his home, have the comforts of a home immediately,
and pay for it as he can. Come in and let us tell you about it. Thousands of others- are paying us little installments, every month. And it may be that at least half of

Marrying Brother George.
A well-known Virginia clergyman, one
time president of William and Mary Col
lege, was married three times, and on
each occasion the ceremony was per
formed fcy his brother, an even more re
nowned bishop. When the first marriage
took place, the bishop had to refuse a
tempting Invitation from an old friend
because so the letter ran "I am going
up to Williamsburg on that date to mar
ry my brother George."
The same friend happened to be on the
train with him, years afterward, when
he was traveling to the second ceremony.
"I am going to marry my brother
George," the bishop explained, benignly,
after the business of greetings was over.
Again many years passed, and the same
Journey was taken once more for the
