democratic charges that Gov Thomas E Dewey was nominated by the republicans for a 3rd term after a payoff to Lt Gov Joe R Hanley The democrats based their charges on a letter released by Hanley Monday in which the lieu tenant governor said that if I will consent to take the nomination to the United States senate I am definitely assured of being able to clean up my financial obliga tions within 90 days The democratic candidate for governor Rep Walter A Lynch immediately accused Governor Dewey of participating in a ne farious crime He charged that Hanley had been bought off to give up his own candidacy for governor and to run instead for the senate In New York Gov Dewey told a news conference he had never discussed Hanleys debts or his situation with him but that he had assured Hanley that ais job in the state government remained sure Dewey said it looks as though a demo trying to work his way intot Dannemora or Matteawan state prisons by making the most violently false charges al leging crime none of which oc urred Clear M Asked if he planned to investi gate the situation Dewey said Theer is nothing to investi gate its all clear as day At Rochester Frank Gannett publisher of a group of news papers and long a prominent re publican called for a grand jury investigation Gannett who said he lent Hanley about to help finance his preconvention cam paign said the letter reveals corruption in political affairs and the penalties for these are setere The New York Times said the letter was one of the worst kept major political secrets of mod ern times and reflected bitter Runaway Boy Consumes Sized Dinner Des Moines A 14yearold boy who had run away from the state juvenile home at Toledo gave himself up at Polk county Sheriff Howard C Reppeters of fice Monday The boy told Reppert he hadnt had any thing to eat since Saturday night The sheriff took the lad to the jail where the boy ate 6 fried eggs 8 pieces of toast a quart of milk and a large bowl of jello Authorities from the juvenile home came after the boy later in the day The lad who is from Genterville said that he and two other youths left the home Satur day but that he separated from the others He said his mother was dead and he had not heard from his father since he went to the home a year and 4 months ago CHARGE REDUCED Des Moines The 1st degree murder charge against William Music has been reduced to man slaughter by District Judge Loy Ladd SAME Uliick fltf means trllfto In put 24 ship Dewejr The 74yearold lieutenant goy eirnor had been assured of the republican gubernatorial nomina tion until Dewey changed his mind about retiring Dewey announced Sept 4 that he would seek a 3rd term Lynch claimed that Dewey stood convicted by his own run ning mate of bartering one of the highest offices in the gift of the people for his own personal gain as though it was a commodity in the market place He contended that as a result of the disclosure Dewey would have to be impeached if re elected Nov 7 and that Hanley could never be seated in the senate Hanley had a secretary distrib ute copies of the letter to news men after he had held a news conference to deny what he said were absolute falsehoods in a whispering campaign against him Asked about the letter at a campaign stop Dewey said he was delighted Joe met these smear attacks headon Hanley wouldnt reveal to whom he had sent the letter Democrats said it was delivered by messenger to Republican Rep W Kingsland Macy of Suffolk county at Saratoga Springs Macy was there to attend the G O P state convention Sept 6 and 7 The democratic state committee in New York City released pho tostatic copies of the letter which a spokesman said the democrats had had in their possession for three weeks He would not say how it was obtained The letter was dated Sept 5 the day before Hanley announced he would run for the senate Nov 7 against Herbert H Lehman democratliberal incumbent Charges Money Deal At Batavia Congressman Lynch charged in a speech Monday night that Hanley had been bought off by Wall street bankers to give up the gubernatorial nomination to Dewey The amount of money in volved is Lynch as serted He did not elaborate Hanley told the news confer ence that the letter was being cir culated publicly and that insinu ations have been drawn from the letter as to why he relinquished the gubernatorial nomination In the letter Hanley wrote Today I had a conference with the governor in which certain unalterable and unquestionably definite propositions were made to me If I will consent to take the nomination to the U S senate I am definitely assuredjif being able to clean up my financial ob ligations within 90 days so that I would be clear for the first time in 20 years of my life I am assured of an adequate living compensation if elected in a perfectly legal and unquestion able way Also I have an iron el a d unbreakable arrangement whereby I will be given a job with the state which I would

home Macy said he had no comment on the letter Macy a member of the state board of regents has been at odds with Dewey for some time HalfTruth Hanley said that one of the in sinuations being drawn from the letter was that Dewey had prom ised him a state job if he were defeated for the senate seat Thats one of those halftruths Hanley declared He said he told Dewey that if he were defeated he might have to ask the governor for a state job Hanley said Dewey replied that the state would not wantto lose you from state service In answer to a query on the statejob angle Monday nigljt the governor said that nearly two years ago we talked about the possibility Dewey added I told him the state could ill afford to lose his services Any time he is prepared to accept an appointment I consider it a great honor Hanley withdrew as a candidate for governor Sept 2 and urged Dewey to reconsider his announced decision to return to private law practice Plane Crash Fatal to 28 London A
