status quo. The normal conditions of crime,
rapacity, bloodshed would be disturbed. Ac
cording to Lord Salisbury, and, most Engllih
men apparently agree with htm, such a change
in th. existing conditions within th. Turkish
empire Is fraught with th. most awful dan
ger which could possibly threaten tb. nations
of Europe. So terrible are tbey that th. Prim.
Minister haa only to hint at tbem with Dated
breath whenever news comes of a particularly
dreadful massacre In order to stifle all prompt
ing ot humanity In English breasts. But there
Is no need to borrow trouble yet on tbl scire.
There still remain some thousands of 'Armenians
and Cretan for slaughter,' and until they are
gone the situation In the near East will con
tinue normal and therefore right.
Lastly, tho Transvaal I Tbl matter has been
a great annoyanoe to the English people, aa
well a to Lord Salisbury's Government. It hss
been mado the excuse for many unkind criti
cisms and reflections upon English character
and English justice. English pride resente
these Imputations. Does not all the world
know that to call In question English Justice Is
a, absurd aa toenail an axiom lu phlloaopby
or mathematics T lias not EnglUh justice

of alt Jurisprudence, outranking the Bible and

Three broken-down Tenderloin sports en
tered lnU a combination tho other day to
Improve their financial condition. All three
were noted rounder in their day "hts
beeus." as thev aro colled In the Tenderloin.
Old Medge Tom, tho chief among them, was
awell-known eport whose boast wo that ho
necr carried a roll with less than a S100
wrapper on the outside. lie was dubbed Old
Sledgo by tho other sports, because aa a
"roaster" ho was without an equal.'
The second conspirator. IIIlo Jack, was cash
ier for a bookmaker who went broke cne day
at the race track and attributed his 111 luck
to Jack. Ho said that Jack was a hoodoo,
and till queered Jack w Ith all the other hook
ies at tho track, nnd he could nut gut another
Job. Tho third conspirator. Frank Ilamphat,
wo known as the poet sport la hit day. Ho
ho ten distinguished lately by the fact that
ho hns been wearing long whiskers, a fur
trimmed overcoat, a straw hat, and a pair of
rubber shoes In summer.
The three conspirators sgrred that It was
necessary to havo somo capital to start with
and pooled their wealth, which consisted of n
total of 78 cents and a package o f dope cigarettes.
It was then decided that to put up the 78
cents on one race might result disastrously,
and even It tbey split it up and bet on several
races they did not stand a chano. of winning
even the prico of their supper.
"I've (truck it, boys; lnt us start a hand
hook on the races," said Old SledgTom.
"Capital 1" exclaimed Illlo Jack.
"Glorious!" fairly yelled Frank Ilamphat.
And thus it was that what Is now known as
the Shoestring Handbook was started. Thn
trio took up their headquarters outside a ea.
loon in Mummer's roar, as the block In West
Twenty-eighth street, between Broad ..-ay and '
Sixth avenue. It known, on July 4. Ilamphat
was deputized a sheet, ritor, IIIlo Jack wa,
atslgnedas out. do man, and Old Sledge ap
pointed himself custodian ot the 78 cents
and became known a, the banker. Then IIIlo
Jaok touted It around tho row that tho Shne
I string Handbook vtus open for buslnns,, Tho
I first man that came along had a combination.
I He offered to beta dime that Rotterdam, Huo
Kittle, and Don do Oro would finish first In the
nrtV, second, and thin' races respectively at
' Hheepshead Bay. Ordinarily thl combination
would have been 6 to 1 in a first-claa, book,
but the Shoestring Bonk, in consequence nf tho
, limited capital and the reduced amount of
I the wager, compromised allh tho bettor by
' offering 7 to 1. Thebhoeitrlng bookmakers,
1 after u conference, thought It was a safe risk,
and decided that It would be good lurk to win
the first bet with the book. So the money
war put up and the wager duly recorded by
Then the members of the Shoestring Book
and the bettor gathered around the tlckor of
a neighboring saloon and awaited the results.
I lhe members of the Shoestring Book wore pro.

poor bettor with his last dime began tn look
hluu when lie saw Old Sledge pull out a rabbit
foot and begin rubbing the back of his neck
with It. Illlo Jack had bent himself overtlio

never made the wage' when he saw th. Bhne i J
string bookmakers trying to root him broke. B
At lost the Brat rt.ee was over and Rotterdam -m
won. The poor bettor's gloomy expreMon
gave way to a faint smile while the members of m
the Shoestring Book got together and talked i
over the matter In low, serious tones.
Then a young clerk who had heard of the, ts
Shoestring Book came along and wanted to beaj JuK
a nickel on bue Kittle in the socond race. The M
Mid, were 0 to 1 against the horse at the track, -. KJ
but nil the Shoestring Book would, or rather! v (x
could, lay wn, the remaining right cent. In,' I ..-J
tho hank to the young clerk's nickel. He tooki I In
the bet and said he would hare to go away, as iff
ho was only out for luncheon. , PjL
"If oue Klttie wins Just lay all my pile ord fjff
Winged Foot In the third race," was the par i SL
lng request of tho young clerk. S3K
"All right, my boy," said H(lo Jauk. as hen Hjj
winked nt hi, fellow conspirators. They ox j "a
petted to have a cinch on that bet. 1 ?-3'
The ticker began to go again, and th. Shoe-' I M
string bookies got around In their former tsl ' fa,
tioii, nnd tho painful process ot rooting thai yfl
poor bettor broke began agatn. He still had, '
his fulnt smile. Illlo Jack's faco whitened likal tm
chalk when the ticker announced that Sue. tjBt
Klttlo had won. Tho Sboetrlng booklet tJ!n
groaned aloud, und held another conference. 4 )H
