Dramatic Tersonne (or those present)
Many American Mayors, delegates to
tho confereneo of the American Invest
ment Bankers' Association; delegates to
the American Federation of Labor con
vention! society folk! guests! sightseers!
ibelt boys, nndo.tlicrs.
Mayor Carl 11. Keller, of Toledo, O.,
was tho nrst to arrive. Ho has a strong
personality and he means business.
"Boys," ho said, "I'll tell you of a llttlo
war wo have been having all to our own
In Toledo. It's war on tho traffic Just
plain ovcry day street railway traffic.
For seven montliB-tlio people of Toledo
rodo freo on tho street 'cars." .That's
L going some for Toledo.
Mayor Mltchel, of New York, wore a
light suit, light both In color nnd weight,
and no overcoat. Tho, youngest Mayor
certainly proved n favorite with tho
.women, both old nnd young. They turned
i lout In lnrge numbers to hear him Bpeak
! Vt WItherspoon Hall. "He's so good to
Ws wife," ono of tho fair sex was heard
"How did you llko Wlthcrspoon Hall?"
ono Mayor had naked another. "Don't

Mayor , of , and a few others
at tho hotel bar.
Mayor Blankcnburg's double attracted
a. good deal of attention as ha sauntered
.leisurely through tho lobby and down
"Peacock alley." Ho Is C. .1. Kclm,
Burgess of Catasaun.ua, Pa. The rcsem
blnnco Is striking, especially at first
glance. Mr. Kelm also has a slight Ger
Louts D. Brnndcls registered nt the Uni
versity Club. Mnny of tho visiting Mayors
spent tho afternoon there. There are
BoVeral hundred delegates at tho confer-
dice. Tho mnjorlty are at the Bcllcvuo.
Mayor Charles II. Ellis, of Camden, was
late. Ho said ho had n good excuse,
namely, tho trolley service In Camden, or
the Public Service Corporation. "Wo cer
tainly havo a nervy Public Service Cor
poration nt homo," ho said. "I havo coine
hero to learn how to unnerve It."
"Traction Director Tabor's report on
rapid transit Is the finest work of Its kind
I ever read," said Alfred Bettman. former
City Solicitor of Cincinnati, who Is at
tending tho conference. "Cincinnati Is
about to spend J10.000.QOO on rapid transit,
and wo hope to learn a lot here."
All MnjorB look nllke to the bell boys-
thai M all but Mayor '"nudolph" so called
by one of the Montreal delegates. vThe
bell "hops" certainly had a buiy ony.
Standing In line to register was quite the
thing. Something like election dny.
"I am stopping here, at least I hope I

had somo difficulty In getting a room.
Mayor Oscar B. Marx, of Detroit, was
willing to discuss anything but tho war.
Tho corncob plpo Is tho latest at tho
Bcltovuo. T. S. Scnnlou, Commissioner of
Finance of Huntington County, Vn., be
lieves In comfort. Ho prefers the corncob
to perfectocs, nnd acted accordingly.
Said the Mayor of North to the
Mayor of South , "it's a long time
since we saw anything like this. We
don't know u rbul and not a soul knows
us. Home was never like this."
"You bet," came Iho reply. "If we had
a 'Peacock alley nt home we'd charge
Harvey S. Chase, representing the Bos
ton City Club nt the conference, was tho
only '"Hub" delegate. "This seems like
old Utiles," Mr.-Chaso said, as he glee
fully rubbed his hands. "I don't quite got
3 on," tlii inquisitive one ventured, nnd
asked, "What old times?"
"World's setles1 times, of course."
Mayor T. W. Kevin, of Easton, Pa.,
looked quite "natty" In a neat gray suit
