BEING TOO BUSY
One of the great dangers of
being too busy is, that you arc
liable to miss the very oppor
tunity you arc figuring on.
Many a man in the throes
of a business problem has de
nied an interview to a caller
who came to offer a solution
for the problem in question.
Whether you have a build

of coffee to buy, always re
member, that the very man
you want to get hold of may
even now be trying to get a
few minutes of your time.

office or to any one of llfty-onp Supreme
Court rooms or any of the dozen rooms

Tho next floor above the subway plat
forms, will be on a level with the street.
There will be doors loading directly from
tho sidewalk to tho elevators, so ar
ranged that persons comlnR In by side,

one of the main entrances In order to net
Into the building.
Tho four main entrances, fronting
upon Centre and Worth streets, will be
Identical. Each of the porticos will
be flanked with eight Corinthian col
umns, supotting an entablatute catrying

On the floors above are the court
rooms. The City Court will have its
twelve rooms nil on one floor, with
.lURtlces' retiring rooms, Jury rooms and
clerks' offices adjoining. The Supreme
Court with its fifty-one court rooms
will have four floors. The largest Su
preme Court room will be on the first
floor, the ornamental feature of the
building. It can be used ns a great
auditorium or for trials of great public j
Interest. It will have acrommodatlona
for 1,600 people.
Above the court rooms are dining i
rooms for the Justices, Adjoining 'a
brond terrace which extends around the
building will be the Justices' chambers.
It Is Mr. Iowell'a Idea that the Justices
can walK out on tne lorrace in inr in

see the city nnd the harbor stretched out
Mr. Lowell points out that one of the
main features of Ihe scheme Is that
separate elevator services for the public
nnd the Justices are provinea. unce in
the building the Judges and the public
need never meet, for the passageways
connecting the robing rooms, the Jus
tices' chambers, the study alcoves and

Although the annual report iff the
Police Department would Indicate thnt
nrrests resulted from 68 per cent, of the
complaints received, Investigators re
porting to the Curran Aldermnnlc com
mittee put the nrrests at 28 per cent.
Tho police report sas that out of
46.I7S complaints In onl. 8,43." cases, oi
ls per cent., "no results" were nchlexed.
The committee's Investigators say that
something over 50 per cent, would be
nearer the truth In the no results cate
gory. "Highly Inaccurate, Incomplete nnd
misleading" Is the way the Investigators
describe the police reports with rogsxd
to the work accomplished by detectives,
j These reports, nccordlng to the lnvestl-
gatots, are bawa upon incomplete
'flcures. the nreclncts reporting less than
ITS per cent of the complaints teceived
,nnd the captains using their own dis
ci etlnn as to what to report
The Investigators found that a large
number of reported losses were ignored
.In the police report.
The tepoits from pretncts to l'olice
Headquarters on individual complaints
of iit.zen.t ate described by the Investl-
;natots ,n this wise: "Carclesslv and
peifunctorlly made, contain little In
formation of teal value, are never
i becked up at Headqimrters. are far
from complete, little if any use is made
'of them at Headquarters; in short, they
are the product of enormous but al-
I most fruitless labor."
j An Idea of the lack of completeness of
,ihe tecords Is shown by the statement
.thai the homicide records of the lie-
teem e bureau for 1912 make no men
tion whatever of forty-flve cases re
liorded In the Coroners' and the Dis
I u let Attorney's offices. These Include
'; distances in which the defendant has
'been tried and convicted for murder
within the year.
"In only lx cases out of 330 reported
in the bureau for the year were convb-

Instead of It being left to the discretion

Of individual victims of burglaries,
the Investigators visited one at 646
