Well, they made ft lot of fuss over the

handsome n reception ns nny solar child
who hud ever nettled in ouY midst.
Everybody agreed to give him the
benefit of the doubt anyway, nnd the
Vccptlon boomed nnd rattled nil the way
Up Broadway and clear out Into the
wood. Jersey must have got tho echo
of it, but a lot of Jersey moved over to
Manhattan to Ret inside information.
And It didn't make any difference whether
you had ft handful of yellow money or
were n jump ahead of tho deputy HherllT.
There was sport enouRh to go around.
As Johhny Hutler suld to Tommy nt
Hhanley's last night when Uncle Tom
Costello began to King:
Champagne is expensive, but nny
Irishman can hand you a laugh."
And It wan true that a good many
hundred thousand New Yorkers who
couldn't or wouldn't start the New Year
bv bovine champagne wanderei up and
down Boradway saluting it with merri
ment and all the noise they could turn
loose. And another hundred thousand
or so, for whom the big restaurants and
hotels arranged specinl entertainment
ate course suppers and stacked bottles
on tho table nnd decorated their heads
with grotesque caps nnd bombarded each
other with carnations.
The Mayor's decision that rowdiness
should have no Hay in the celebration
and the certainty of the poTTce that the
Mayor wasn't kioVlng the force when he
said it had a lu .o do with enhancingthe
pleasure of a good many people who
stayed up longer than usual. Along
Broadway were 1.000 policemen who kept
the ban on ticklers nnd confetti and
broke up flying wedges and lockstepllles.
and it was possible for a man a nd a girl
to see the fun without being annoyed by
rough. Anybody was permitted to mitktf
as much noise as he could breathe or buy
and there were more horns and rattlers
and squawkers than in the celebrations
of previous years.
Uptown the horn blowing and hooray
ing began after dinner nnd increased
steadily until the theatres let out around
11 o'clock. Then it was a roar until
after the new year had come in. For
about three hours you navigated Broad
way up or down with short steps, holding
her t ight for fear of lomgher in t he crowd
taurant to signal the New Year. Four1
tiny old women appeared in the orenestra
loft and began to sine the national air.
Half a minute later their gray wigs and
masks and grownup dresses disappeared
and four pretty little girls wererovealed.
Kllmbcth Spencer, tho soprano, stood
behind the children nnd led the l.MU-odd
in singing patriotic songs.
At tho Knickerbocker, twenty-four
fin go boys dressed as Father Knloker
locker, In white satin coats, black knee
breeches, silk stocking and pumps and
with powdered wigs, handed out fresh
flowers to the patrons Just before mid-
night On the second, twenty trumpeters
sounded a call. Tho llehts went out for
an instant and then a battle of flowers
stnrtitl Somo of the Knickerbocker's
crowd were Enrico Caruso, J. Koosevelt
Jtoosevelt. Charles M. Schwab, Charles H,
Dickey, William It, Orace. E. C. Tower,
C I' Noyes. William It. Willcox. George
Foster Peabody and William I). Hloane.
Black silk masks were worn by women
who had siinner at the Plaza. Neapolitan
singers roamed from room to room sere
nading the merrymakers. At midnight
me llgnis went out ror a tew seconds as
the bands played a national air. Among
the celebrators at the Plaza were Mr. and
Mrs Reginald C Vanderbilt. Mrs. t). 11. I.
Belmont. Mr. nnd Mm. J. Borden Harri-
man, Mrs Reginald Itonalds, Mr. and Mrs.
i noouoro r snont. air. ana airs, i-kui

Hawley, Oen. Stewart M Woodford,
Senator and Mrs. Chauncey M. Depew,
Frederick Townsend, among whose guests
was Mrs Vanderbilt: Mr and Mrs. Oren
Boot, Albert E. Oallatin and Oen. and
Mrs. Howard Carroll
Simper parties tilled ten rooms at he
Waldorf-Astoria, and there was a band
for each roon.. The Ilitz-Carlton was
crowded with celebrators from Fifth
avenue, J. B. Martin's, the Caf Madrid
and Jink's welcomed the new year ac
cording to their custom.
It was not apparent at any of the res
taurants where no formal prohibition
is placed on smoking by women that
women toon advantage 01 me permis
sion. In two or three Broadway places
it was done surreptitiously a puff or
two from behind a menu card.
"We say that women may smoke,"
said one restaurant manager, "but we
know that they won't. It isn't good
form over here yet, and it may never fie."
In mos of the restaurants the cele
bration was pretty well oyer by 1 A. M..
1(11 1 , although here and thero along upper
Broadway the funm.iking went on behind
drawn curtains until two or three hours
Downtown tho crowds were smaller
and quieter than usual, and those who
set out deliberately to hear the Trinity
chimes for once had ft chance. By half
an hour after midnicht the streets below
'I i'io"1Siooklyn Bridge were almost deserted.

Wahiiinoton, Dec. 31. President Taft
visited the rooms of the National Press
Club to-day to extend New Year's greet
ings to the newspaper men of Washing'
ton. Tho President made a brief ad'
dress in which he placed ,the newspaper
men in tho same class ns those who prao
tlso medicine, who preach and who fol- j
low the law. He has found good and bad 1
men among them, ho said, but the good
outnumber the bad. The President did
not make an intimate talk about the loneli
ness of the White House, as he did when he
visited tho Press Club a year ago,
The President got an enthusiastia re
ception and twice during his speech the
applause was so groat that he was forced
to pause for several minutes. The first
time was when he said:
"I congratulate you that you had the
good sense to reelect your president."
Again, when ho said that "there are no
men more clubable than members of
the press." those who knew how he has
been criticised thought they discerned i
a double meaning in his words. The
President said in part:
I presume the craft of newspaper men
Is not rlrh', to speak moderately, but cer
tainly the benefit to be derived by the
members of the press from such clubs as
this ran Imrdly bo overstated. There are
no men more rlubsble than members of
the press. I am In favor of clubs, hut t
always think that clubs are better If they
have an addition to them which permits
the wlxes of members to come in and run
up hill It hrinna home to one the neces
sity for a littlo moderation In the use of
that pArt ( the club that is expensive, and
it Introduces Into the family a belief that
life Is a partnership affair. And therefore
I commend to you as members of this club
the makiiie of plans for bringing into it
those ladles who ought to govern your lives
and I hae no doubt Inmost cases, If your
experience Is mine, do,
Hut I inino here for a very (informal
meet ine. item lemen. I did not come charged
even with the feeling that comes to a man
who is to le subjected to a "roast at the
C.riiliron Club I did not even make that
prrpaMtlon that one who has attended
such dinners Is in the habit of making:
thnt Is. of confessing himself with respect
to all hi lni nnd being prepared to admit
them In a very kindly company. Those
who ome before press men for the first
time .ire in the habit of either praising the
press nnd lis Influence nnd boning before
It or of taking that opportunity to Indicate
how It might be improved. I haie had so i
much experience In this mntter that I am
going lo take neither course, for I have
failed in both. I belieie press mn are
like nil other men of Intelligence and edu
cation in the community There are lead-!
er, there nre men of lonsrlence and men
ho nre not greatly burdened with It lu
the profession, Tho profession is like all i
other professions like the profession of '
the law and the ministry and medical.
You are proud of a great many of them
Some of them you are not proud of, hut
w hat I ish to emphasise Is that there Is no
characterization that you can make of
press men different from that which you
make of all professions in which a great
majority nre gentlemen, and there are some
that yon would be gtnd to have left out of
this profession as of others.
Now, gentlemen, I thank you sincerely
for your welcome. I hope the next year
will be full of happiness for you all. I do
not know that that wish can come tru
because happiness ftfr some of you wll
be sorrow for others, for you nre engaged
in competition, ns we nil are; but I sincerely
hope that the next enr will be full ofypros-
perlty and as much hnppiness aa can come
to all of us In this country.

The son was educated at the Brooklyn
Polytechnic and tho Stevens Polytechnic

His first professional position was
as an inspector of material under the late
Wilhelm Hildenbrand on the Brooklyn
Bridge He afterward held a similar
place under George Morrison on the
Blair, Neb., bridge, and with the backing
of Mr Morrison rejected the material of
the entire bridge because he said it did
not meet the specifications. Ho also In

up at the home of Governor-elect Dix,
where Mr, Murphy had a chat with Mr.
Dix of about half an hour. Then Mr.
Murnhv and Mr. Smith walked back to
the Hotel Ten Eyck.
Although the election of a United States
Senator is more than two weeks off the
headquarters of Edward M. Shepard are
to be opened at the Hotel Ten Eyck on
Monday. The committee having in
charge the interests of Mr. Shepard, of
wmcn L'avia a. uoony is cnairman, nave
mailed to practically every member of
the Democratic League, formed at Sara
toga two years ago, in which work Mr.
Shepard was a prominent lactor, a letter
Wo believe that the great mass of Demo
crats throughout the State favor Edward
M. Shepard for t niled States Herfntor,
and moreover that such active adherents
of Democracy as those enrolled In the
State League are anxious to do whatever
they can to effect such a result
If you favor Mr. Shepard we shall Iw
glad to have you advise u, together with
any suggestions you caro lo make. You
can do very effective work by getting tho
newspapers In your toiinly in lino for
Mr. Shepard, by sending and having sent
letters to the press and lo your Senator
and Assemblyman elect, by organizing
the advocates of Mr, Shepard into local
committees similar to ours and in other
numerous was recording and focussing
Ihe sentiment favorable to Mr. Shepard's
Notwithstanding somo reports to the
contrary, Mr Shepard Is strongly favored
by not only leaders throughout the whole
southern part of the Slate but by the lank
and file of the party here, who are eiilhu
sinttlcally for him
Of course William F Sheehan is to
open headquarters also, and Supreme
Court Justice James W Gerard haa rooms
engaged at the Ten hyck for to-morrow.
Many familiar with Demooratlo State
politics and with the political wisdom
usually displayed by William F. Sheehan
venture Ihe nuggestion that he would
not have announced his candidacy except
after a. careful poll of the Democrntio
members of the Legislature and the
various Democratic organization leaders.
But friends of Mr. Shepard insist that
even if Mr Sheehan and his friends havn
apparently arranged matters to their
satisfaction at this moment such a situa
tion will not be tolerated ultimately.
Sir Murphy was in a genial mood when
he saw the newspaper men, but lie was
mum on both the United States Senator
ship and the Senate leadership questions.
"Is It true," Mr. Murphy was asked,
"that Senator Grady is out of the Senate
"We can tell heter after the caucus on
Tuesday night, replied Mr. Murphy
"Will Senator Wagner get tho support
"I wouldn't be surprised if he did,"
answered Mr. Murphy.
Mr. Murphy waa aaked if it ware tru
that Gov. Dix was opposed to the election
to the majority leadership of the upper
house of both Senators Grady and Wag
"I haven't heard." replied Mr. Murphy
with some einph.ii. "that Gov. Dix
is for or against anybody."
Mr Murphy told the reporters that he
intended to call on Gov. Dix. "It will
merely be a social call," he said, and
he insisted he had no intention of dis
cussing prospective appointments with !
Gov. Dix sent word bv Secretary John
A. M.i son that he would see the news
paper men nt his home. At 8 o'clock
to-night Mr. Dix- received them, He
had nothing important to tell them, he I
saiti, nut wanted to get acquainted wun
all hands. He said he had discussed
but one appointment with Mr. Murphy,
and that was the selection of a Forest.
Fish and Game Commissioner to succeed
H. Lcroy Austin, whom Gov. Hughe
appointed after he secured the resigna
tion of former Commissioner James S.
Whipple. Gov. Dix admitted that he
had the name of a likely appointee under
consideration, but would not make It
"You will understand when I make
it known how hard it was to get him,"
was the Governor's statement
In view of tho fact that there are sev
eral candidates working hard for this
place the Governor's statement will be
received with some degree of disappoint
ment. Gov. Dix is familiar with the Adiron
dack region and understands the depart
ment. He would not say whether Sir.
Murphy hnd a suggestion to make a lo
an available man. He intimated that
If anything he was using MY, Murphv's
influence to have tho man he has in mind
accept the place.
"It has been reported that you indi
cated your disapproval of Senator Grady's
election to the office of President pro
tem. and majority leader of the Senate,"
Mr, Dix was asked.
"That is not so," replied the Governor.
I never Indicated my disapproval of
Senalor Orady. I understand that ho Is
not a candidate for the office "
Gov. Dix also said that he was not
expressing any disapproval of Senitor
Wagner. He hnd suggested now and then
that possibly an acceptable man might
, tie cnosen irom among ine new rneniners,
but these were suggestions only. He
did not wnnt anybody to get the Idea
that he intended at this time or any
, other time to dlctnte to the Legislature.
I He felt that the Democratic majority in
; both houses needed no interference from
the Executive chamber and ne felt equally
' certain tliAt the people of the State would
be pleased at Its organization, at its
selection of a successor to Mr. Depew
and of its work during the next two I
years. ,, ... i
"Mr. Murphy's call was indeed a social 1
one," concluded Mr. Dix, "and I was gald
to see him and Mr. Smith."
Gov. Dix said ne wouiu see me mem-1
bora of the Legislature at the Executive
Chamber every working day in the week
