ENGLISHMEN IN NEW YORK.
Obliged to Leave the Continent on Ac
count of Americans.
Tho English colony in Nor Yoik is
largely mado up of young men of cul
tured, leisurely habits, with epicurean
nppetlt03 and plebeian incomes. Thoy
nro, for tho most part, younger sons
of good education and no calling or
profession. In almost every caso In
quiry elicits the fact that they are
pensioners on homo bounty. Thoy are
living on limited allowances just
enough to oncourago respectability
such allowances being apparently doled
out with tho view to sustaining llfo
without leaving margin enough for
dissipation or a return ticket. In fact,
in many instances, tho allowance is
mado conditional on remaining abroad.
If they should vlolato this condition It
is work or starve. Undor tho circum
stances, it would seom that a conti
nental llfo would bo preferable, in
view of Its cheapness, but theso young
men prefer America. "Americans
aro kinder to Englishmen," says one
of theso young mon, "than tho people
of continental Europe. Wo havo
worked that sect'on of tho earth a triflo

As for tho vast numbers actually

chancellor, thirty greater canons,
twelve lesser canons, about fifty chap

'HOOK AND CROOK."
Were Thor nnd Whit Was tho
Origin of tho I'brasc.
Thero have been many attempts
mado to explain tho origin of tho
phrase. "By Hook or Crook." Tho
Bostou Nows-Lctler of January, 177C,
explains tho expression thus: "Hook
and Crook w ere tlio names of tw o Eng
lish judges at tho beginning of tho
last century. Thej were both men of
emluenco In their professions, but not
more remarkablo for anything than
for tho perpotual diversity of opinion
that prevailed between them on mat
ters of legal jurisprudence. Bo tho
caso what it would, every suitor was
Buro to have Hook or Crook on his
Wilson's "Origin of Familiar Words
and Phrases" says that iU probably
moans "foully hko a thiof or hollly
llko a bishop," tho hook being us;d
by burglars, tho crook being tho bish
op's crozlor. "Tho Hand-Book of
Fact and Fanoy" gives the following
story undor tho heading of "By Hook
pr Crook:" "Tho great firo at Lon
don in 1060 destroyed 13, 200 houses,
and in many cases obliterated all tho
boundary marks requisite to deter
mine tho sites occupied by buildings
previous to tho fire. When the rub
bish was removed disputes aroso
among tho peoplo as to tho position
and extent of their landed estates.
Theso contentions promised not only
intcrm'nablo lawsuits, but also de
layed tho rebuilding of the city until
thoy could bo settled. Accordingly
two of tho mo t experienced survoyors
of tho duy, Mr. Chas. Hook nnd Mr.
Geo. Crook, wero called upon to act
as arbitrators in tho mattor, land-
ownors entering Into, a pomnaptto tnkp
tno uccision or mook auu urooK as
final rind binding. From this1 fact
aroso tho now famous phrase which
heads th's article.
As a fourth and last solution of tho
mystery, an old London legend tells
lis that tho numerous families of Hook
and Crook formerly, did tho feiry
business for tho whole of tho British
metropolis No Odds oh wliat'toU
