Whatever the value or the validity of
the other intangible assets, there Is no
doubt whatever thnt the electric light
franchise which the Manhattan Transit
controlled through Its control of the I,ong
Acre stock was n real though intangible

the courts in the course of a long and
bitter litigation between the long Acre
company and the Edison company. Tho
most important law suit was liegun as
long ago as ltioe, when Supreme Court
Justice Dowllng granted a peremptory
mandamus to compel the Consolidated

Edison company, to permit the I.ong Acre

try nnd pretend to live as I should, but the
good lord above, I trust, has directed me
to take the right course, either to continue
with you, or desert the other and our dear

I rill li of the awful silence I often main
tained tiod, I hope, will have merev on me, and I
ask his blessing for you, and hope Im takes
good csre of you. I have treated you very
mean, I feel It now, but the bridge wus
crossed before I knew how far I had gone.
1 am going away for a rest, and try to
live down this awful sorrow With bitter
tears, I close this, my full confession. Yours

Judge Charles M. Hough, who yester
day sentenced Frank L. Cooper, nn ex
I'nlted Stntes army civil engineer, to
six months on Ulnckwcll's Island for'
running n "smoking den" on West I
Thirty-ninth street, said In court that I
opium smoking Is growing alarmingly;
Judge Hough said he had good reason
to bellevo that 250,000 pounds of tho
drug are unlawfully brought Into this
country ench year, whereas the records
show that only 70,000 pounds nre Im
ported for medicinal purposes nnnually.
"My Investigation of opium smok
ing," said the Judge, "lends mo to
believe that It Is thn selling of the
drug by white men to white persons
that sprends this horrible vice. Maybe
the Chinaman hns to havo his opium,
but there Is no excuse for tho white
man cngnglng In this trnftllc."
