THE TAXICAB BUREAU.
AN ENLARGED Taxicab Bureau, tuch as the Mayor atkt for, to
carry out the provision of the new taxicab ordinance, which
goes into effect Aug. 1, will be one of the moat essential
tlluti ;n New York's new era of taxicab service which The Evening
World baa fought so long to secure. Lower ratea and fair competi
tion knean a big increase in business. Expert supervision on the part
of the Bureau of Lieenaea is needed to keep the standard of caba and
service on the upward track.
Under the new system of public stands and lower rates, taxicab
yrejprietora are sure to make their bid for public patronage with new
of cabs. It will be the duty of the Taxicab Bureau to hold all
' cabs strictly tn certain standards of size, safety, convenience and
In many such respects New York taxicaba are now far bo-
For example: No new taxicab ahould be licensed that is not
le of turning completely around without backing in a atreet
; twenty-five feet between curbs. This is absolutely required
of all London taxicaba. How many taxicabs in New York could do
M The saving of time and confusion if all cabs were of such a
pattern would obviously be immense. Windows should be required
10 bo in proper order1 which they never are now in New York taxis
end neither dmrs nor windows should rattle. In London taxicabs
saoy ho refused a license for failure in any one of these requirements.
Another minor detail, mall hut contributing enormously to
etsnfort: The present method of communicating with the chauffeur
through window or door is highly awkward and dangerous. A small,
shutter in the glass behind the drivers head would be simple
I convenient. To devise and inaist upon such improvements should
bo on important function of the new bureau.
Especially significant just now, moreover, is thejarger question
of proper license and strict supervision to keep licensed taxicaba out
of the hands of criminals. Only two days ago Secretary of State
May declared that "unless some radical change is brought about in
the enforcement of the motor vehicle law the criminal use of the auto
it liable to provo calamitous." That public taxicaba in this city
should so often he found closely allied with crime is scandaloua. The
Torioab Bureau most be furnished every meana with which to tighten
Mi grip and increase its vigilance. It ahould be left no excuse for
ant doing its full duty.
HOW TO SEE EVIL
CHABAS'S September Morn" ia now causing riot in Atlanta,
Ga. When the picture waa first displayed in a ahow window
such crowd gathered that the police had to be called out,
end It tak an hour to clear the streets. When the Chief of Police
aviated tbo picture removed from the window the proprietor of the
hop refused. Ponding the Recorder's decision, policemen are kept
petroling the neighborhood to keep the crowds moving.
Is there much doubt that all this can be directly traced to the
Mkealthy mental state of one Anthony Comstock, who cannot view
tbo picture of a harmloaa little maid standing in a lake amid the
of an autumn dawn without feelings unworthy of a rational
being? After his silly fuse over the picture in New York,
WBOt happened? A day or two of curiosity. Now reproductions of
the pointing are exhibited in scores of shop windows and nobody is
he eked or demoralized. But other cities that read the news are on
tbo lookout for the picture and keenly anticipating the "worst."
How many people in this country would have seen anything indecent
in "September Morn" if our muddy-minded Anthony had not set the
eofl rolling by shouting to his fellow townsmen that he had discov
ered it? Wo wonder if it ia a source of gratification and pride to
Mr. Comstock to consider that during his generation no man hero
ahouts has done more to teach the eye of innocence to wink and leer.
SAVE THE TREES.
B. FULLERTON, who looks after Nature's interests on Long
Island, is sending out alarm bulletins about the doings of
the tent caterpillar who is getting in his deadly work in
enormous number this year. The web-worm, as he is often called,
la the earliest and hungriest of the spring destroyers. He has a
bluish stripe on either side with a line of orange-brown spots down
the middle of his back, and he builds weblike, funnel-shaped lodgings
In the forks of tree branches, whence he sallies forth in millions
to oat up tbo countryside. The best way to discourage him is to
fght him early in the game with fire. A piece of rag soaked in
kerosene and tied to the end of a pole will burn out the nests with but
trifling damage to the foliage. Once he is allowed to flourish and
multiply, it is troublesome, expensive and well-nigh hopeless to con
tend with him. When he is fairly at work on the leaves arsenate of
load ot the rate of one pound to fifteen gallons of water applied with
hose is about the enly thing that worries him.
This is homely information, but it is the sort everybody with 'a
homo and a garden ought to keep on hand. For if everybody who
trie, would devote a half day to burning out the caterpillar
at once, there would be a thousand times less danger from the
posts next year. In the last decade we have seen the elm, the most
hoautWui hp i stately of trees, utterly vanquished snd almost wiped
ont by l ogs. It is time to organise and put up a stiff defense for
what is left. Whether we valu? it for fruit or shade, or the pleasure
