Humane Society Discusses Various
Phases of Cruelty.
The East Room of the Waldorf-Astoria was
turned Into a clearing house yesterday afternoon
— a clearing h< use for suggestions on how to
make lif*- lew bard tor man's faithful frk-nd and
servant, the horse, and tor all other four-footed
animals ton. t: stlona were offered at
a meerinp calk-d by David Belals. president of
the New fork Humane Sod sty. As Mr. Bclai3
•was unable to be pres< nt until toward the end,
Mrs. Belai? presided.
Colonel Joel B. Brhardt, the first speaker, re
marked that the meeting could hardly have
been held at a more appropriate time, coming
as it did at the end of the hardest two weeks
horses have ever suffered in New York.
"Women." he said, "can do more than men
toward sat ■■ ring abused horses.
"When a man |onet rates with a brutal
driver, unless he Is an athlete the argument is
likely to end disastrously for him when the
driver gets down from his cart. But when a
woman steps out from a crowd and speaks a
•word for a horse the driver must heed what she
JSfys. or else run away. I paw one driver pursue
the latter course only the other day in 421
street, and though I waited fifteen minutes I
didn't see him come back to face bis accuser.
Women sometimes feel a certain reluctance
about appearing in court, and hesitate to press
a charge, but I don't think they need to, for, so
far as I have observed, our courts are very
quick to heed these cases, quick to punish
cruelty to animals."
Colonel Erhardt, who was formerly identified
v-ith the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals and who assisted at the birth of
the Mew York Humane Society, remarked that
he didn't agree with the people who objected to
the formation of a second humane society in
'I was glad when this one was organized," he
raid, "and I hope more will be organized. The
more the better. We need them. And one of
their chief objects,' be went on. "should be to
teach the children to be tender to all animals."'
Then he told a little story. "My wife and I," he
said, "sometimes disagreed about the disposal
of the mice she caught In traps. I would go se
cretly and set them free. One day when my
daughter was younger than she is now I showed
her a mouse in a trap. 'Do you hear what he is
savin?'' 1 l asked. "Why, he isn't saying any
thing,' ph.- told me. "Yes, he Is; he says. "Mr.
Man, I '. c.v came in here for a bit o" cheese. I
don't mean anybody any h&nn. Please let me
go home." ' And," added Colonel Shrhardt. "I
don't believe the child ever forgot that lesson
that animals have feelings rs we do."
Colonel Erhardt suggested that the New York
Humane Society give some entertainments, fol
lowing the example of Bide-a-Wee, "which," he
said, "realized $1500. I believe, at an entertain
ment it gave recently.™
Herbert N ■ for a couple of years
hff- i^en devoting a portion of his time to giving;
talks in the Board of Education course in the
: - . humanity to animais, in behalf
of the Xt m \^:k Humane Society, was the next
speaker. He characterized the late unpleasant
ness in the • humane societies as :t kind
of "jam," like the lumber jams in Northern rivers.
"The Jam i>- broken now." he said, "and the
P. P. C. A. rafl along all ripht. But
there can't be too many humane rafts <-n the
river of life."
Mr. Caisson offered a number of suggestions,
Jotted down at odd tiir.es, he said.
"Let us be humane to horses,"' he went on,
"but let us be humane to drivers, too. When a
driver works for sixteen hours a day he may be
excused, perhaps, when he loses his temper and
whips a horse. Let us try to Influence the man
back of the driver, who overworks his men, who
sends bis horses out with smooth shod feet that
cannot grip th« Ice. who cuts the wages of the
driver if ho tails to haul as many and as heavy
loads in February as he does in May. And let
us educate the driver::, many of whom ill treat
horses through ipnorancfc more than through
brutality. I would suggest asking the Team
eters' Union to allow a veterinary student to be
appointed by this society to give talks to the
men at their meet on The right treatment of
animate. Perhaps women might lecture before
the driven too. And I think we ought to pay
some attention to the East Bide, to those Italian
hucksters who will buy a poor, worn out horse
for a few dollars and club him through the
streets. We have a heavy task in the educa
tion of the thousands of immigrants who are
coming- over here, most of them from regions
where ideas of what is due to animals are very
different from the American conception of hu
Mr. Carson, while he admitted that the society
had enough to do to protect the million horses
and the much larsrr-r number of dogs and cats
in New York, thought it ought to have some at
tention to spare for the girls who sell papers
in the streets. 'It Is bad enough to pee the
small newsboys." he Bald. "It is absolutely
brutalizing to see little girls vending papers
out in the i row da. in the cold, in the streets."
Homer Davenport told some stories of animal
Intelligence and loyalty. After him came Mr.
Butcher, of th» Audubon Society. Mr Dutcher
declared that lovers of animals ought not to
trade at stores whose proprietors allow their
drivers to abuse their horses.
Then Albert R. Rogers, who has organized
children all over the country into bands of
mercy, made a strong plea for the conversion
of en.- I drivers rather than their prosecution.
"Often a driver who is punished for cruelty,"
he said, "trill go hom^ nnd In the secrecy of
his stable ty.fiict worse tortures up >n his horse.
Thr driver who is converted learsis how •to
cherish Iris horse.*'
Mr. Rogers said ho thought we should !,..
polite to animals as well as kind, and he told
a story of an old Southern woman who rebuked
a Negro for beating a balky mule. "When she
told the Negro he ought to be lite to his
mule. said Mr. Rogers, "tin Negro turned
satirical and. taking off. his hat. made a deep
bow to the mule, saying. "Massa Mule, please
go!' And." said Mr. Rogers, "that mule went!
Ladies and gentlemen, when you see a horse
etubborr.ly refusing to pull a load — for, much as
we love them, horses can be stubborn— go out
and give that horse a pat on the neck, a bit of

Animals appreciate gentle treatment, and an

Legislature, and would probably pas?, giving

JEWS TO HELP THE BLIND.
Council of Women's Work to Em
brace a New Field.
The New Tork branch of the Council of Jew
ish Women, which already maintains a vast
amount of practical benevolent work among the
Jewish poor of the city, is about to add to its
list of activities the care of the Jewish indigent
blind. Miss Sadie American, the president, told
the members who attended the fifth annual
luncheon of the organization yesterday at the
Hotel Majestic that there were 190 very poor
blind people belonging to their race and religion
In N>w York, and the women, most of whom
K-ere elegantly gowned and "... jc-welled, looked
at each other with sympathy and pity on their
faces, and whispered that they "must do some
"We now number 1,350 members." said Misa
American in the course of a short historical
sketch of the council, and especially of the New
Fork branch, "but do you realize that with all
our work for our immigrant girls, our unmar
ried mothers and our poor, that .his one class
has been Left unhelped? Just recently the
names of ninety blind children have been given
to me. Those will be visited at once."
Mrs. Tunis <i. Bergen, who was introduced as
the 'chief citizen of Brooklyn." urged the
women to "mother" their city by befriending
the young women In the public playgrounds, the
young children in the juvenile court, etc. "We
should regard our city not as a social centre,
but as a human document," she said.
Mrs. Belle Dp Rivera talked about clubs and
crowds — the good they do. and the evil. "Clubs
keep women young." she declared. "I remember
where a woman of thirty-five or forty talked of
■my time of I!f p .' and took her knitting into the
chimney c-orr.er, waiting for d»»ath. We've
changed nil that. Club rows? Well, they were
among the evils, but even when the women
resolved to leave club llff and go home to sit
by the fire they couldn't — there was no fire to sit
by. only a steam radiaior or an asbestos gas

Difference Between Poor Immigrants and
Which Is ihe greater evil— the pauper Immi
grant or the millionaire emigrant? Thl? rtues
tlon was propounded by Mrs. Harriet Oi
yesterday afternoon at the regular meeting of
the Woman's West End Republican Club In the
Hotel Astor to the speaker of the occasion, Ma: -
cus Braun. former Commissioner of Immigration.
Mr. Braun had been talking about the immi
grant custom of sending money home to Europe,
or of staying in this country just long enough to
earn money to p a y off a mortgage or to buy a
"Of the million immigrants who come to us
every year," he said, "half ;i million return,
while milll - liars are sent annually by
Immigrants to their relatives In the Old World.
I d'j::'t know how this can be prevented, but if It
is kept up it is likely to become a serious drain."
Mrs Ostrom thought this a small matter aa
compared with the emigrant millionaire.
"We complain," she Bald, "about the few
paltry dollars that the poor man sends abroad,
or the little home that h<- secures to end his
days in. while our millionaires are n (| irip to
nd and building castles, if we had the
ipend in Europe we wouldn't misa
the little that the Immigrants take oui of the
country. We \r<- very much concerned, too,
lest men with prison records should land on our
shores, while us bad men are leaving them as
any who come to us. They have robbed us in
many ways, and they have never been in prison.
Let the Immigrant come and let him go, as he
pleases. Our millionaires go and very few re
"Rut these are Americans, and we cannot h< !p
ourselves," answered Mr. Braun. "When the
trouble is in our own house It is not so easy in
deal with it as when it Is elsewhere."
Mr. Braun said he had nothing to say against
Immigration, having been an Immigrant him
self, but thought that better methods of re
striction and distribution should bo devised. The
deportation of these likely to become public
charges seems to him a particularly Ineffectual
measure, because there Is no way of telling who
are likely to become such.
"Money is no guide." he sal<s. "I landed here
with only $1 GO in my pocket. I was likely to
become a public charge, but so far T haven't
became so. If I came, to-day with only $1 f,r>
and had no relatives to vouch for me i" would
be deported, and it is not a sufficient sum of
money for a stranger to begin life on in a
strange land. But I have known a man to come
with SSOO or |600. with good health and a trade
and to become a public charge in a few weeks
I hr.ye known men to land with $2,000 or $3,000
and have not a cent the next day."
Mr. Braun advocated as a means of keeping
out undesirable immigrants a Secret Bervice sys
tem abroad and v taw compelling the steam
ship companies to return the passage money of
d'-jv rted persons.

and the big rotunda, recalling vividly the raid
upon the Capitol made during the hard times
by C'oxey's army.
The White Ribboners kept within bounds until
an attorney for the brewers, Robert Cralne, arose
to address the committee. Women crowded the
small committee room and far out into the hall.
Most of them could not hear a word that the
attorney said. He began by referring to the
attitude Bishop Potter, of New York, had taken
in regard to the saloon. This displeased some of
those within hearing and they showed their dis
approval by hisses. It was taken up by those
not bo fortunate as to understand what was
Miss Phoebe Cousins, who had been wheeled
to the room In a chair to oppose the measure,
reprimanded her sex by saying, "1 agree with
the lute Genera] Benjamin Butler, that only two
kinds of animals hiss the goose and the snake "
"Hiss if you want to," added Mr. Cralne.
"Bishop Potter is one of the greatest bishops
the Episcopal Church has ever had. Where is
the Intellect of the men and women who hiss th«
name of Potter? Where, I say, If their Intellect
when they deride such a name?"
Chairman Babcock, of the committee, also
spoke sharply to the visitors.
MRS. BAILEY GETS ESTATE
Court Decides Against Protestants
of Will of Shoreman.
Surrogate Frank V. Millard. at White Plains,
handed down a decision yesterday denying the
claims of the plaintiffs in the suit of James A.
Bailey's nephews and nieces against his widow,
Mrs. Ruth McCaddon Bailey, to secure a share of
the late circus magnate's estate. The plaintiffs
alleged undue influence, in pronouncing against
their claims. Surrogate Millard said that it was ap
parent to him that the value of the estate was un
incentive to the relatives to try to break the will;
or perhaps they expected that Mrs. Bailey would
settle with them rather than go to law
Mr. Bailey, who died April U. 1906. left a will
drawn In ISS3. In which he devised his entire es
tate to his widow. This was supplemented several
years later by a codicil, In which he stated that no
one except his wife had any claim upon his bounty
Delevan A Holmes, who represented Mrs Bailey
in the suit, said yesterday that he was not sur

totally unable to substantiate their contention that
