r-laltily orthodox. It had gathered to
honor a dead emperor whoso portrait,

Mr. Hosenblatt has had a closer con

many. He Mood proudly last night
hlle there was read a letter to him
from Francis Joseph complimenting him
en a song he had written In eulogy of
the Kmperor on his SOlh birthday. Then
Mr. Hosenblatt nnd his chorus sang' the
tow. and It took n great deal of exhor
tation from the chairman and the ushers
to suppress the handclapplng for this
was a memorial meeting.
Wmu Beloved hy Jem,
If one had never known It before, one
very forcibly learned last night that
Francis Joseph was a, friend of the Jews.
Tfce Jews loved him for his liberal and
democratic views and for tho privileges
he had granted them, such privileges an
the race had never enjoyed before In his
empire. This was what brought the ten
thousand out of their homes to Cooper
union last night, and this was what Dr.
Salomon Neumann, the principal rpeaker,
dwelt upon In his add.ress.
All the speeches were In German or
Tiddlfh, and they were better under
stood than If they had been In Kngllsh.
Dr Neumann told them that It was fit
ting thnt they, though they honored the
Stars and Stripes of their adopted coun
try, though they were most of them
American citizens hy naturalisation or
hy bit th. though they owed allegiance
tn no other country than the I'nlted
States, that they shoud meet to honor
the dead Kmperor of their mother count

who had let them live unmolested and
who had provided for their education
Iteaolatlons of Sympathy
And that was how the other speakers
emed to feel about It. Arthur D.
Katchcr. president of the federation, who
cw-ned the meeting, said that tlifl Jews,
tint only those of Hungarian extraction
hut the Jews of the entire world, felt a
personal bereavement In the loss of
I'rands Joseph. "We believe that we
en be true Americans and honor the red,
i Ute and blue and still honor the mem
ev of nur dead Emperor," he said.
In line with this feeling they adopted
solution of sympathy and sorrow,

Father Hchumack dwelt upon the
many trln's and the pathos of the long

relied for consolation during his many
days of stress.

Joseph J. Hartlgan, father of the egg

most of the day yesterday working on i

boycott ana for the beginning or tno.twccn 3 r. -M. and ll r. M. tho average

He believes the present egg boycott Is
succeeding. Egg prices have dropped
about four cents a doxen since it began
last Tuesday and Mr. Hartlgan believes
that this Is due, at least In part, to tho
"The egg boycott, while not at Its
highest yet. Is gaining fast,'' Mr, Hartl
gan said last night. "The public Is join
ing In the boycott and the responso that
has come Is remarkable.
"The boycott Is aimed at conditions
more than atjnen. It Is proving an ef
fective weapon to decrease demand and
lower prices. It helps to stabilize prices.
It promotes economy In tho use of eggs.
It contributes In tho stoppage of waste.
It tends to educato the consumer In our
whole food supply situation, city, Htate
Talk and .o Artlon.
"For eight years we have been think
ing, talking. Investigating tho high cost
of living. No action has followed.
Laws, city, State and national, have been
made In the Interest of protection of the
food Interests. Tho people are now
awakening and will demand curative
legislation In their Interests. It Is a pity
the subject Is going Into politics. The
food Interests, honcvcr, nre not without
blame for tho present conditions. The
solution of the high cost of living prob
lem Is a duty upon the cooperate effort
of the patriotism and the best brains of
the nation. It cannot be solved solely
byNeglslatlon. It lies with the people
themselves, we must see to It that ex
isting watte and extravagance Is elim
inated from the farm, hi transportation,
distribution nnd In the home.
"We need a national cold storage law.
CoUl storage waa meant to be a blessing,
to conserve perishable food for tlmea of
scarcity. Such abuses have crept in
through Its connection with gambling
food Interest! as to bring the system un
der suspicion. The transfer of food prod
ucts from State to State through the cold
storage system to evade the legal time
limit needs the attention of the national
and titate legislatures.
Serenty-fUe In Trnst,
"There Is an association of seventy
five cold storage plnnts which cover the
States of New York, New Jersey, Con
necticut, Delaware and Maryland. It is
possible indrr the secret workings of
this association to keep food products in
cold e-torage for an Indefinite time, which
linked up with the gambling Interest In
foolstuffs makes for higher prices to tho
consumer. The coM rtorago laws of the
Stato need Immediate and serious re
vision in the Interest of the consumem.
The present cold storage laws of the
States are like the divorce laws Just

"There Is a cold storage trust and It
Is generally believed that It Is able to
evade the laws of this State."

"The present high cost of food prod

charges of combination, monopoly and
price control," this magazine says In a
column headed "Observations hy the Kgg
Man," "on tho part of public officials wlio
wish to pose an benefactors of tho public
nnd who know nhnut ns much of the
laws of trade as a cow knows of tho
symphonies of Beethoven. The ngitntors
comprise, in tilts State, nfllcers of the
local department of markets, of the de
partment of weights nnd measures, of
the police department nnd of pretty
nearly all public officials who think that
by leading public opinion to nttrlhute
high prices to Individuals or classes of
trade they can secure the prestige of
protectors of the public Interests."
The "Kgg Man" berates the news
papers that have given space to such
"sensational matter," recites some of the
matters that have been under consider
ation hy Mr. Hartlgan and others and
then says: "All these follies make n
man 'tired.' But now let us see whnt
tho statistical position of egg stocks at
New York really shows. The following

for Treatment in
New York will bo the first city of the j
country to put Into prnctlco tlic idea of
a diagnostic hosnltal ns euggested last
summer by Dr. Charles It. Mayo of St. ,
Mary's Hospital, llochesler, Minn., In
nn address the Mirgcon delivered before
the convention of tho Catholic Hospital
Association In Mllwnukee.
The ono great present day need In the
direction of hospital advancement, Dr. '
Mayo said in his Milwaukee speech, was '
a hospital devoted solely to diagnosis.
Medical experts on the staff of such an
institution, suld Dr. Mayo, would diag
nose the patient's aliment nnd then sub
mit n report nnd directions for treatment
to the regular physician.
Thnt such a hospital wns to bo built
hero did not become known until yes

to Dr. M. Joseph Mandelbaum hy the
?sew York Diagnostic Society In Hie
Waldorf on December G, details concern
ing the new institution wero made
known. The Diagnostic Society wns or
ganized here soon after Dr. Mayo's
speech was printed In tho medical maga
zines. Rasy Payments.
A novel feature of the proposed diag
nostic hospital wilt be n system of pay
ing for services on the Instalment plan.
"This method of payment," Dr. Man
delbaum said yesterday, "will lie cspe
olnlly for wage earners. If their appli
cation for diagnostic services Is approved
hy their employers or others equally re
sponsible, a method of imsll periodic
payments will obtain for them the very
best of diagnostic skill. The system may
tartlo some who are not In the haldt of
looking nt theso matters from the stand
point of dollars and cents, but this Is to
be n practical plan and therefore must
he considered from the most easily ap
plied financial basis."

subscribed for the Institution and the
medical men Interested say only $90,000
more will he needed for a slto and

War Department Makes It
Plain Hard Training Is
BUSY SEASON AHEAD
Officers and Men Compelled to
Harder work In training, drill and In
struction than they have ever known In
times of peace Is In store for the Na
tional Guardsmen In the drill season Just
at hand. There in to be no respite even
for the staff officers. Orders issued by
the militia bureau of the War Depart
ment make It plain that every man In
the service must work, and work hard.
It Is because the New York National

States, La now n pnrt of the United
States National tluard. The citizen sol
diers must hereafter conform strictly to
tho terms of the national defence act or
the appropriations made by the Congress
for their pay will be forfeited and the
troops faro dlsbandment.
Under the orders Issued by Adjutant-
Hen. Ixiuls W. Htotesbury. which embody
the demands of tho War Department, the
National Guardsmen must have forty'
eight periods of armory drill In the
course of the year, Including Indoor tar
get practice, each period lasting at least
mi hour and a half. In addition there Is
In be field training for at least fifteen
The orders fixing the number and
duration of drill periods apply to general
oftlcers as well as companies. They Im
pose regular attendance and a criticism
after each drill. Colonels, lieutenant
colonels and majors aro required to wit

commissioned staff officers must attend.

The Variety we are showing in
at $20, $23 and $25
is something stupendous!
If we carried only popular-priced
clothes and never sold a garment at
any price but $20, $23, or $25, it would
be practically impossible to embrace a
wider range of fabrics or a liver range
J The greatest test of a modern clothing stock is
Values nd Variety, and that test is greater than
ever today because the high cost and scarcity of
woolens have made Value harder to give, and
Variety harder to get. Yet wo believe the Raka
selections of overcoats at popular prices show
less than any other selections in town the cfTect
of these abnormal conditions.
J The variety of fabrics i something phenomenal.
It is EXHIBITIONAL, as if we had chosen this
particular season to demonstrate our capacity for
achieving the unusual! Nothing is missing, and
scores of newcomers are present! The staple
overcoatings are here in full strength, nnd so are
new weaves and distinctive combinations of color.
J And never before was so much style and indi
viduality crowded into $20. $23, and $25 models.
Pleated back Ulsterettes that have tho crack of
a whip in their lines! Form fitting button
throughs and double breasters that hang ns true
as a plummet. And fly front conservatives that
look to be selling out of their class.
As for the Values match them
against any others in town, and
we will take the consequences 1
