having saved moro lives than any other
asency except tho sea wall. He sent roo
tcrcycles in , every direction down tho
Island for a distance of SO miles, warn
ing them they would dlo If they did not

were probably only 200 persons left on tho
Island below Galveston. Tho llfesaving

Tht city of Galveston is under martial

Prompt measures for the relief of tho
sufferers have been tuken. The National
Hed CrobS has wired Its representatives
at New Orleans and on tho border to get
Into touch with the stricken district and
Elvo any needed relief.
Major General Dell has gone to Texas
City and taken chargo of the rellof work
there. He has been authorized by Acting
Secretary of War Breckenrldgo to pur

Which Overturned
With Son Who Accompanied Him on
Fatal Trip He Had Traversed
Delaware Before
Lack of confidence Is ascribed by friends
today as tho cause of tho death of tho
Ilcv. H. McKnlght Moore, who wns
drowned In tho Dclawaro River yesterday
when his ennoe struck a submerged rock
and upset In tho Lambertville Falls.
Doctor Mooro took the same trip In the
summer of 1913, nnd nccordlug to a friend
who accompanied him, ho did not tnke
his ennoe out of tho water during tho
entire length of the dangerous voynge,
even to nold tho dangerous rapids and
falls in which many canoeists hod been
drowned during tho snmo season.
Ycsteiduy, according to reports, Doctor
Mooic expressed n fear about going
iluough tho Wells Falls nt Lambertville
nnd took his canoe out. Together with
his son Ilnrry, who paddled In tho bow
on tho trip, ho carrltd thu ennou below
tho falls nnd launched It. Tho pair set
out for tho middle of the stream and It
In thought that the rushing torrent below
the falls caught the light craft up before
the occupants were ready and hurled
them on a rook. Doth wero thrown Into
tho water, Mr. Mooro coming up In .1
dazed condition. Ho made no effort to
save himself, uccordlng to the dispatch.
TU'fore assistance had arrived from other
members of the party ho was torn from
tho grasp of his son, who had sought to
bavo him.

tho source of the river. On the trip, which
Included falls, rifts, rapids, eddies nnd
whirlpools that would tux tho skill nnd
strength of tho most expert canoeist, Mr.
Mooie several times expressed tho fear
of being overturned on account of his
weight. Threo times he hesitated about
going on. saving that ho would rather
carry tho cunoc around and launch it be
low tho whlillng waters. The places that
Doctor Moore expressed his fear of were
Skinners' Falls, a bad stretch of water,
rushing over gigantic rocks; tho famous
Foul Rift, Just above Huston, In which
four canoeists wcro drowned that year,
and tho Lambertville Falls, In which he
was drowned yesterday. At each of theso
places, except the Foul Rift, he was per
suaded by other members of tho party
to shoot the falls.
At tho Foul Rift that year tho party
was warned ngnlnst passing through.
The other members of tho party said they
would go through the fulls and Mr. Moore
also consented. Half way through tho
torient Doctor Mooro's canoo struck a
rook on tho edge of a whirlpool nnd up

kept tho craft near tho rock, und it was
saved from turning completely over. Tho

Praises Son's Purity
NEW YORK. Aug. 19. Mrs Rudolph
Frank today forgave the Georgia mob
that lynched her son. Leo M. Frank.
Only a few hours after her son's body
had been brought here for burial Mrs.
Frank received reporters for the first
time In her Brooklyn homo.
"It's all over," she said, sadly, "and we
want to be left alone, but as Leo once
said of his mallgncrs:
" 'Tho Nazareno Bald, God forgive them
for they know not what they do,' and I
accept his words. Some day they will
know those men who killed him.
"Now that Leo's body Is with us we
feel that wo ought to Bo left alono with
our grief. But It is not my boy that
is here. It Is only the house, not the
spirit. The spirit has been called to God.
"My boy never told a He. Ho never did
a mean thing in hla life. Ho was as pure
as he was on the day he was born. The
remembrance of Leo's faith In God Is
all that remains to us. God has given
me strength with which to bear this or
deal Just as He gave strength to Leo.
"There was never a day that my boy
did not write to me. He wad always
thinking of me, but his was a quiet dis

Smith Still in Field Despite Ap
pointment by Brumbaugh to
Public Service Commis
sion, Says Chairman
Ut a Stuff Correspondent
ATLANTIC CITV. N. J., Aiig. 19.
Thero will bo no factional light In tho
Republican orgiinlziitlon In the Mayoralty
contest this year, and that both tho Vitro
and MoNIchol factions will bo united be
hind n "hnrmony" candidate, was Indl
nifcd by David II. Lane, chairman of
the Republican City Committee, In nn
Interview today. Mr. Lnno declared that
all tho Organisation lendcis had agreed
upon former Postmaster Thomas 13.
Smith as tho "hnrmony" candidate, and
Intimated that, dcsplto Smith's appoint
ment to tho Public Service Commission,
be may yet be the Organization candi
date. The "sage of the Organization, '
nflrr tolling of tho ngreeme.it on Smith,
declined to dluouts personalities, but ho
gave tho Impiesslon that Congressman
William S. Vale la not to oe consldeiod
us ,i possible harmony candidate.
Mr. Luno said that tho basis for h(s
confidence that tho Organization UTdois
will unite behind a "harmony" candidate
Is "conversations" ho has had with tho
leaders during tho last. few days and tho
fact that slnco the Orsanlzatton bosses
hud been able to agree upon Smith, they
will continue to bo for harmony, mid the
selection of tho candidate, should It not
be tho former postmaster, can bo easily
worked outiby them. His statenfent that
Smith had been agreed upon prior to bis
appointment by Governor Hrumhmigli
to tho Public Service Commission showei
tho appointment to have been the frame
up that bus been charged and that the
appointment wns made In order to put
the gubernatorial stamp of approval upon
the Organization candidate.
"I was greatly relloved," said Mr. Lnue.
when tho leaders all Ilnally ngrced upon
Mr. hmlth us tho cnndldnto behind whom
tlicy would unite. No formal agreement
was made, but thcro was the understand
ing that Mr Smith was acceptable to tho
ure.s and McNIchoI."
When ho was reminded that tho corre
spondence that passed between Governor
Ilrumbaugh and Mr. Smith, when tho ap
pointment was made, was generally be
lieved to havo been a blunder on tho part
of tho Organization, he bald:
"Ono must remember that tho corre
spondence would have tho morul effect
of putting tho executive slump of ap
proval upon Mr. Smith, as a mull capable
und lltted to b Mayor. No ono will deny
that n man capable of being a Public
Servlco Commissioner is capable of being
Mayor. Before Mr. Smith was appointed
Publlu Servlco Commissioner, he wns not
generally known among tho voters, but
his appointment bus shown them that ho
has tho ability to fulfil tho duties of any
high ofllco.
The cxpcrlenco of four years ugo will
cuuse the organization leaders to con
tinue to agree upon n harmony candidate,
ho said. They showed tho Inclination to
avoid u fight when they ngiccd upon
Smith, ho continued, and ho added that ho
has every reason to believe that they
ure still In the sumo frame of mind.
Tho criticism that has followed the
manner In which tho appointment of
Smith wus announced hns not entirely
put Smith out of consideration, -although
It may yet do so, he Intimated.
"Time alone will decide that," ho said.
He also Intimated that tho Organization
leaders expect that Congressman Vuro
will Ilnally withdraw from tho contest In
tho Interest of harmony.
