.ASHIXGTON. Aur. U-Speclal Tela
am.) The Washington view of the (hoot-
l.lg Of Mayor Gaynor is that If h survives.
Hfc I likely to be the democratic nominee
fr the presidency In U'12. -
It may well happen that when Jamee J.
Gallagher fired en assassin's ahot at Mayor
l&iynor he was doing the very thine that
us calculated to make certain the rlae of
the mayor politically. At any rate, that la
fce of the possibilities of the situation.
(The information ix-ie la tliat there Is not
much questlqn of tho nomination of the
mayor for governor of New York If It Is
eea that his wound la not going to Impair
hi vigor. It Is known that some of the
shrewdest republicans In New York have
been calculating all along on Uaynor as the
democratlo nominee.
This was ' before Mayor Oaynor was
wounded. That, tne circumstances of the
aasault upon him and the fortitude with
which he has borne up have helped to in
crease his popularity in New York and na
tionally. Is cleer. ,' ,
Already leading Minnesota, democrats
have spoken out In favor of Gaynor as the
available man for the democratlo presl
lentlal nomination. Other are extremely
likely to do ao.
As the altuation stands among the demo
crat, the great- body of them are looking
for a Moses to lead them. If Mayor Gay
nor should happen to be the next governor
of New York and should make a success
pf It, he would be almost Invincible at the
next democratlo national convention.
It is true that Governor Judson Harmon
la much in the limelight as the possible,
many think probable, nominee for presi
dent, lie would be a strong factor if he
carries Ohio this fall, and dosen't Up up
on some of the numerous political banana
peelings that hi friends are throwing in
hi path. But the trouble- with Uncle Jud

it suspicions; of fclm. ' ft doesn't like the
fact that he wa so long receiver for the
Cincinnati, : Hamilton Dayton railroad
and It remembers .he was' lit the Cleveland
cabinet It ha a deep, dark notion that
he 1 allied with the so-called reactionaries
ot the democratlo party and Is lukewarm
toward his nomination to say the least.
Win lam J. Bryan I well known to be
hostile to the nomination of Harmon. On
the other hand, the Bryan force woiTd
Support Gaynor and so would a good many
of the conservative element of the party.
Looking at the situation tn. almost any
way one will, It appears, as most politic

The rlfla expert. General George W. Win-
gate, who founded the Creedmora rifle
range, ' thinks that to hit an . aeroplane
going forty-five ml in an hour would be a
very dlffiouit feat tor a rifleman, and he
doubt If there are a dosen marksmen -In
the New York atafe mtllta who - could
manage it. In shooting at a machine -joe
yards away It would be necessary, he (ays.
to tlm from ten to twenty feet' ahead of
It, and In shooting into the air the marks
man I at a loss "there I nothing to guess
on." Moreover, uch shooting would b at
dangerous to friend a to foe. Yet he
regard the ride as the best weapon how
available for the purpose, and recommends
training In shooting on the wing. But If
only an expert here and there, - like Dr.
Carver, who Is regarded by General' Wlrv
gate a the greatest trick ahot he ever
aw, can acquire uch expertneaa, how can
these few be distributed la war so a td

Although the French military aeronaut

really doing mora than w are to develop

fare. Neither Curtis' nor Harmon' ex
periment In hand grenade target practice
are convincing. If bomb are ever to be
thrown from aeroplane going forty mile
an hour they will be thrown by a marks

Indian Bnreaa and Forestry Service
Are Caattoned Not to Work
for Separate In
terest. WASHINGTON, Aufr. lA-CSpeclal Tele
xrem.) Major General Leonard Wood, chief
of staff of the army, yeaterday took the
heads of Indian and forestry service to task
for not getting together In their efforts
to fight fort-Ht fires In the northwest He
told them, after a conference, that they
would get no more aid from the army until
they had at least mapped out some plan
of action; that he did not Intend to send
'troops to fight fire and have those troops
cross each others paths and add unneces
sary expense to their movement. Tho
forestry service want troops to flffht the
fires In the national forest reserves, while
the Indian bureau heads want the troop
to fight fire on the Indian reservations.
General Wood said that one forest wai
Just asmuch the government's reserve as
the other and he would furnish troops for
both, but not until th officials got to
gether. The acting heads of the forestry and
Indian services admitted to Genral Wood
that the conditions in the Flathead, Coeur
d'Alene and Olacler park reservations were
acute and that quick action and relief was
needed to save the forests.
'Several thousand men are now working
on the fires," said General Wood. "The
fires are extremely dangerous this year,
owing to the protracted drouth. Troops
have been ordered to the scene of the fires
from both the Department of the Dakota
and Columbia. Pack trains have been
ordered to proceed Immediately from ie
army post to the flrestrlcken territories
With auppliea for the men.
The Indian bureau haa Its agent on the
Flathead reservation with a force of team
ster and other employes and Indians fifth t-
Ing the fires there, while the forestry
service Is making every effort to check the
flames to the national reserves. These
departments must work together. There is
no difference between the forests on the
Indian reservation and those in the na
tional reserves. I believe that since our
conference there will be a better under
standing and alt will pull together."
