A* a result or his «*ervatlo« of the lives of the
children of the well-to-do, the president of the
Playground Association of America. Luther Hal-
Guiick. has started a campaign among build
ers of note's snd apartment houses to Induce them
IB make playground provisions for the children of
their tenant?. This campaign ■will not be limited
to Ma* York, but will cover all the big cities of
the count ry.
The tavesds32ioa conducted by the association
has revealed the fact that niaay of the children of
xvealthr parents v.-ho live in expensive apartments
have less :..>■ facilities than the children of the
tenement house?, who are at ast permitted to
play hi dM streets. The apartment house chil

O.\ T THE PACIFIC SLOPE
California's Reception to Atlantic
Fleet Practically Ended.
I By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
San Francisco. May 16.— This week practically
ended the reception to the battleship fleet at San
Francisco, as the vessels will Bail for Puget Sound
to-morrow. The week has been devoted to soclrl
affairs, among which the mosrt notrivorthy were the
second reception and ball at the Fairmont Hotel to
Secretary Metcalf and the officers of the Beet, Use
ball given by the women of the California Club to
six hundred enlisted men. and the many automobile
rides around the city and suburbs given to the offi
cer*. The ball to the sailors was the unique feature
of the week. Wbssi Mrs. Arthur W. Cornwall and
the other officers of the club decided to gjve a ball
to the 6ailors they came in for much chaffing, but
the result showed that they were wise. Good
dancer!" from each chip were detailed to attend the
ball, and these men did credit to their ships. As
dancers th^y -were pronounced the superiors of
society men, and their manners were above re
proach. Mrs. Cornwall had enlisted the aid of sev
eral hundred pretty society girls, who found the
sailors well bred and bright young fellows who
proved to bo entertaining dance partners. Admiral
Thomas, Mayor Taylor and Mrs. Taylor led the
grand march, and ex-Mayor Phelan and other prom
inent citizens were present. Admiral Thomas danced
throughout the evening and took great delight in
the evident enjoyment of the enlisted men.
Another feature that proved a great success was
Children's Day at the stadium In Golden Gate
Park, when ten thousand boo] children in chorus
sang patriotic songs, greatly pleasing the sailors.
Five sailors from the battleship Louisiana sur
prised the manager of the St. Francis Hotel this
week by leaving an order for a SlO-a-plate dinner.
Th«?y appeared on Monday evening, and In the
handsome blue room of the hotel enjoyed an artistic
menu, with good wines. They all come from Mis
souri, and since they left Hampton Roads they
have made it a custom to eat a fine dinner in each
of the large cities visited by the fleet.
The Salvation Army has given much entertain
ment to the sailors in its new battleship Conqueror
on the waterfront. Tiiis is a social hall constructed
in the form of a ship, with a main deck that will
accommodate eight hundred persons. It has been
v-ry popular with the Bailors.
Orders for enormous supplies of provisions for

It was decided by a large majority at a city elec

the bonds and endeavored to excite sentiment
aiiong various labor unions against them. His ef
forts ■ . re fruitless, however, as advocates of the
bunds shewed clearly that money was urgently
needed if the city was to be restored to proper con
dition. Insurance rates are now three times what
they were before the fire, because there was no
auxiliary water supply; the sewers are in wretched
condition, and many of the 1 ■ oolhousea are one

PUZZLE FOR STUDENTS
Methods of Reporters Too Deep for
Jou rnalistic A spirants.a n ts.
Pea! tie. May 10. — Eighteen members of the
class in Journalism at the University of Wasii-
In&ton. nine men and nine women, had their first
taste of real reporting the other day, when the
city editor of "The Post-Intelligencer" agreed to
put the "cubs" through a day's work. The eigh
teen gathered in the city room, and each of the
reporters took on© or two of the students with
him as he made his daily round. To the students
it was a day of most excitinK experience, but the
reporters generally found It was no joke to pilot
a lot of inquisitive young persona through the
mystery of the "run."
Two women were assigned to the "star" re
porter, and he flpured out at the end of the day
that It had cost him $f. 30 for carfare, ice cream
sodas and tickets to a vaudeville performance,
where the women insisted on coing »*■• they
got tired of walking.
The police reporter had all kinds of fun, for
be Introduced the morgue keeper to his charges
as the chief of police, passed the real chief off as
the Janitor, and made the women shiver when lie
pointed out a poor besotted "drunk" in the caK»
as the latest desperate criminal, who had mur
dered hJs mother-in-law.
The students, however, thought ™t was the
greatest day on record. Most of them were
mixed up, and could not make head or tail of
what was going on. However, all thought It was
the nicest thing In the world to be a reporter, at
which tha reporters smiled that sickly smile so
well known In a newspaper office. Even the
"cub" who had worked a year at »7 » week felt
BOrry for the students.
One of the «omen «said: "I don't Fee why you
have to hurry bo. W> saw some of the loveliest

The man who accompanied the political re
porter said: -I don't know if we ran across a
story or not for I could not understand what
was talked about. The political man and the
men he .-aw talked English, but it was all a
mystery to me. We went into the oftlce of a
man who was. as I was told, the man who knew
the inside facts. He was an elderly man with a
cold, piercing eye, and I felt afraid of him. but
the reporter sat down on his desk with his hat
on the back of his head, reached over and helped
himself to a cigar in a pigeonhole .'md said:
'What's doins, Mac?" That was all. Just what
'.Mac 1 said I don't exactly know, but as near as I
can remember it was something like this: 'It's

district; Lewis carried the south. This gives 52

politics, aa Taffs name was mentioned. But I
don't see how the reporter could write a column

too, as it was on the first page. I am afraid
that there are tricks and secrets of the trade In
reporting as in other things. But X say, how
long does it take to get next to this business?"
The political reporter had to einlle. Ha did not
explain that he had been writing politics for ten
The lanky football player who was assigned
to the waterfront thought he had a message
from Mars when the marine man handed him a
telegraph blank on which was the following:
"St. Sen. yellow funnel, towing bkte foremast
gone. Two mast S. S. blue band over yellow in
ofilng passing in."
When the student saw the story written about
this mess-age he gasped.
Consul General Nicolas int. of Annabel States
that the official summary of the Tax Commission
ers of the city of Berlin for the year 19<>>, which
has Just been published, presents a mass of figures
showing conditions of living in the second city of
Continental Europe and the fourth largest city In
the world. The consul compiles the figures in re
gard to the Income tajt assessments:
The population of Berlin in IM6 is Riven as
2 0+,148. and of this number the Tax Commission
ers, after deducting non-taxable children under
fourteen years of age. the military, and others by
law exempted, found that there were in round fig
ures 1.125.U00 persons (heads of households and self
supporting individuals) subject to assessment for
income tax. Nearly half this number, however,
was found to have Incomes of lees than $214 a year,
and therefore, in Berlin, are exempt from Income
tax. (The minimum varies, in some German utatc-s
being as low as JlW>.)
On the income tax rolls there -were 600.503 names.
Of these H6.6U! hr.d Incomes of from $214 to tat
a year, and £5,675 had Incomes of from $236 to
$714 a year. Thus It is seen that of the €00. S»
persons assessed for income tax W2.253 had Incomes
of less than $714 a year, and only 6,.6 11 persons
were found with incomes greater than that amount.
Above that figure the classes dwindle rapidly.
There were 46,151 persons with incomes from $714
to $2.3*0- i! -" with Incomes from SZJM to $11.9-0;
1.103 with Incomes from $11.&<YI to $23.SC<); 470 with
Income* from 123.800 to U19.060; 39 with Incomes
from $lU>/'"> to I8MW0; 4 with Incomes from 1238.
.... to $476,000; two with incomes from $476,000 to
1714.000, and 2 with incomes dv< r 1714,000 a • ear.
This means that of the 1,15,000 persons in Berlin
•who support themselves or themselves and (ami
ties only "v'~n. or less than DD 141 4 rw»r cent, hai-e in
,,.rn"« of $714 or more a year About 1.9 M.OOO have*
lem than thHt amount, and more than half of these
even less than $214 a year.
I do not believe that any portion of the income
of the man who works for his money often es
rapes assessment for Income tax. The nwM ser
vant, Who earns &'■ to $7 a month, has what her
hoard and ludjdna; would amount to charged against
her in computing her tnconw, and even the proba

It !■ no uncommon sight to see a big closed
truck draw up to th<* •"intirmary" and an entire
dynasty handed out with loving care, notwithstand

be a bast of Napoleon 111. toKether with on« of the

A candle ten feet high, which will burn for two
years or more, lws beta manufactured in New
York recently for the Italian cathedral. It is
dountleas l>M largest a» well a- the most persistent ;
caJidle in the world. ....
The candle measures eight Inches in diameter
and weighs 314 pounds. iv sides are decorated :
with pictures of flowers ami reproductions of paint
ings of a religious nature, all carried out eiubo
ruit-ly with many bright colors. The und.« is '
made entirely of beeswax and cost i.:w. i
This contrivance for a wholesale illumination has
a curious history. The candle is dt signed a* a .
thank offering by Bailaele Csscoae. an Italian liv

tried for murder and acquitted a few weests ago
There was much delay in tho .■>-. and the pris

During his long imprisonment Gucone vowed
veh'-meritly that if he should ever be free.l K
would show bis gratitude In some extraordinary
fasMon. Finally, when he at last found huswtlf
a free man, his gratitude was bo great that he i
insisted on crawling on his hands an i knrea frtrrj

comforted himself by ordering rh-- largest candle
