MAIDS ARE IN DEMAND,
Enstern Cities Can Find Places for
100,000 Servant Girls.
NEW YORK, Aug. 21. It developed
today that places readily could be found
for nearly 100,000 servant girls If the
latter could be secured. The demand
comes not only from this city, but from
the West as well, whence the clamor
for domestic help Is as Insistent as In
this city and vicinity. Chicago is on
the list of applicants, and inquiries from
there indicate that the scarcity of help
In that city is as bad as in New York.
Inquiries at Ellis Island.
Thi9 remarkable shortage In the sup
ply of household maids was developed
by the Inquiries by an industrial orga
nization into the proportion of female
immigrants arriving here within the
last six months. The authorities on
Ellis Island could place 40,000 domestic
servants in positions within a radius of
twenty miles of tho metropolis within
three hours after their arrival. More
than as many more could be placed in
"The only trouble la'we hiven't the
10,000," said an official of the Immigra
tion bureau "Never before In the his
tory of this bureau has there been such
a great demand for domestic help. It
Is a notable Illustration of the good
tlrries that prevail. When times are
poor domestic servants are among the
first to suffer.
Few Come From England.
"Emigration from the British Isles
Is a disappointment so far as the num
bers are concerned. The British Gov
ernment is doing all In its power to dis
courage emigration. A few years ago
Great Britain was doing all in her
power to encourage emigration. My
estimate of 40,000 homes wanting ser
vants Is a low one, but It Is based on
actual knowledge and flrst-class Information."

Special to Tho Tribune.
OGDEN, Utah, Aug. 21. The broncho
busting and rope throwing contest at
the county fair grounds today attracted
a big crowd. The work of both men
was very clever. They rode a number
of vicious bronchos with apparent ease,
and roped a number of wild steers,
showing great dexterity with the rope.
F. .T. Hendershott Is soon to as

Such Is the decision reached by the

Mr. Hendershott will be known as gen
eral manager and will be the directing
head of all matters pertaining to the
fair. Hitherto It has been run by a
committee, but this method has proven
unsatisfactory, and the board has
created this new ofllce.
No better selection could have been
made than that of Mr. Hendershott, as

TIM TO A li
Knows How to Handle
Democratic Chairman Wins
Admiration as " Glad
Politicians Find That the Hoosier is
a Foxy Diplomat From
NEW YORK, Aug. 2L Racy of tho soil
of Joshland, Chairman Taggart of the
Democratic National committee Jaunty
Tom Taggart of French Lick, Ind. jx
clles tho admiration of his party asso
ciates. They say his peer as a glad
hand artist never was seen in these parts
before. The Hoffman House politicians
stopped talklnr about Parker's probablo
plurality In South Carolina for awhllo last
night to discuss tho way Taggart had
handled tho crowd at tho opening of the
new National headquarters.
That was a test, they said, that showed
tho caliber of tho National chairman.
Tho rooms In No. 1 West Thirty-fourth
street wero lllled with a motloy crowd,
among whom there was not a slnglo con
tributor, present or prpsocctlvc, to tho
campaign fund. All wero on tho other
end of the financial proposition they
wanted to get a share of the monoy tho
trusts are exacted to contribute toward
tho election of tho Belmont syndlcato can
didate for President If Taggart had the.
sub-treasury to draw on ho would not bo
ablo to nnd salaries for half of those who
assured him of their willingness to serve
the party for so much a day
The Hoffman Houso politicians, In de
scribing Taggarfs behavior In tho trying
ordeal, safd he never turned a hair. That
expresHcd It pretty clearly. Ho was smil
ing, suave, serene, but ho didn't put tho
ardent patriots who tackled hjm on tho
pay-roll. Not one of them but oxpoccs
to go on later; that's becauso Taggart Is
Didn't Worry Him a Bit.
Tho National chairman was around
early, yet he found tho rooms lllled with
men awaiting for Interviews, Ho started
right In to get rid of them without spend
ing any monoy. It must be admitted ho
"Mr Taggart, this Is my friend, Mr.
McManus. Hero followed a whispered
explanation of the claims of Mr. Mc
Manus. "i'm really glad to meet you. I
have rcaltlvcs by that name; I'm sure
we're cousins If wo had time to trace up."
Then a few words to toll the candidate
for a political Job there would be nothing
for him to do Just yet awhile. Another
shako of the hand and a parting admoni
tion to "drop In again soon" nnd thero

way It went all morning, Taggart ap

Chairman Cord Meyer of the Stato com
mltteo visited the-newly opened headquar
ters to get pointers on tho furnishing of
the headquarters in the Hoffman House.
Soon after his arrival Vice-Chairman Do
Lancoy Nlcoll of the National committee
called. Meyer and Nlcoll got In a corner
by themselves, whero the carpenters and
other workmen would not disturb them,
and chatted for an hour or morn. Pre
sumably their talk was about tho cam
paign. In fact. Mr. Meyer admitted thpy
had touched on the political work which
tho two committees havo before them.
Ho said It wns understood tho National
committee Is not to Interfere with tho
work of the Stato committee, but that
ouch Bhall devote Itself to certain lines
of campaign offort in which It will havo
the Held to Itself.
Hope? Lots of It.
The campaign managers In the Hoffman
House resent the suggestion they have
been dilatory In getting down to real
work. "We have made our preliminary
canvasses as well as Gov. Odell," ono of
them said yesterday
"What did you find the situation to be?"
"Oh, everything was satisfactory', as
much so as we had expected, at least.
Of course we havo a lot of work cut out
for us In the rural districts of tho State,
thoy havo been without any cltecllvo 01
,ganlzation In years ever slnco the Bryan
campaigns. But things aro going to be
different this year."
"Get anything to encourage you in tho
hope Parker may carry the Stato?"
"Lots." was the reply. "Why, In ono
institution up tho Stato whero McKInloy
got 254 votes In 1000, our canvasG showed
200 of theso McKInloy votes will go to
Parker this ear. That's only ono In
stance. I could mention many others."
"Wonder what kind of an Institution
that was he referred to," a visitor to
Stato headquarters asked when tho com
mittee member had withdrawn.
"What kind? A lunatic asylum, llko
ly." suggested a bystander, who evident
ly had grown weary of tho airy talk of
tho campaign leaders.
Just how little there Is to tho claims of
the . rainbow chasers in the Hoffman
House and In Democratic National head
quarters may bo Inferred from the re
mark made by one of them to the re
porters. Ho had been told that 3ov.
Odell and his assistants In Republican
headquarters were extremely conlldent
regarding this State
"Well, .so arc v 0," was tho reply. "We
don't propose to let Gov. Odell or any
other Republican be a wnlt more cocky
than we aro. We aro claiming Just' as
much as they arc."

Her Stocking Slipped,

Man Unable to Comply With Her He

NEW YORK, Aug. hi. "Tho lady asked
ino for a pin. She said sho wanted to
fasten her stocking. I had no pin to givo
her. Sho got angry. 'I'd llko to tyavo
thrco yards of your nose,' sho said, and
aho tried to pull my nose."
Thus spoko Joseph Herbert, a salosman,
indignantly to Magistrate O'Reilly, In tho
Myrtlo Avonuo Pollco court, yostorday.
Herbert, who IIvcb at No. CI Ninth streot,
this city, whs charged by Mrs. Bier man of
No. 622 Second avonuo with having struck
her whilo they, strangora to each othor,
woro riding in an "L" train returning
from a picnic at Rldgcwood. Herbert
vowed ho only defendod himself against
Mrs. Blerman'H vigorous attempt to pull
Magistrate Was Patient.
Magistrate 0"Rollly heard the conflict
ing testimony most patiently. A gallant
man, the trend of his questions proved
that he sympathized with Mrs. Blerman
In tlie desperato situation In which sho
found herself on tho train. Sho had boon
dancing vigorously at the nlcnic and er
her er at any rate, sho needed a pin to
hold up her stocking, and she nocdod it
Having been driven to abaso herself by
telling Herbert somothlng ho never would
have known otherwise, she wan angry,
naturally, when hor confldoncos gained
her nothing, when ho told her ho could
not obllgo her with a pin.
The wise Mnglstrato wns seeking to de
termine tho true othlcs of tho case, when
there appeared, like a vision, a charming
young woman, handsomejy dressed, who
said she wished to testify.
In Interest of Truth.
"I como here In tho interest of truth and
Justice," said the young woman, turlng a
pair of very flno eyes on tho Magistrate.
"1 never saw this man." Indicating Her
bert with a wave of her fair hand, "until
I saw him on the train. He has told tho
truth. He did nothing but defond hlmsolf
against this woman, who asked him for a
pin. Besldos," continued tho charming
witness, arpumentatlvcly. but smiling
sweetly on his Honor, "what right has
anv woman to ask a man for a pin to "
""Don't mention It, madam." tho Magis
trate Interrupted. "Herbert, you'ro dis
charged." So the precedent was established, and
tho law stands that when a woman asks a
man for a pin he need not glvo her one.
HALF HIS HEAD OSSIFIED.
Woll-Known Northwest Brewer Suc
cumbs to Stenosis.
VANCOUVER, B. C, Aug. 21. Joseph
Kappler, owner of tho Columbia brewery
of this city, died hero of Ossification of tho
heart. Kappler left a rcmarkablo will.
Ho directed that, as soon as breath should
have left his body, two surgeons should bo
called to perform a post-mortem examina
tion to determine tho causo of his death.
Two surgeons removed his heart, and
found that one-half bf it had turned to al
most solid bono. Tho right sldo of the
heart with tho valves and blood vessels
wero affected and wore swollen to twlco
their ordinary size. The loft side of tho
heart was perfectly normal, and It was
evident that, because It hat! been working
smoothly. Kappler was enabled to llvo as
long as he did with the half-ossified organ.
Ono section of tho right sldo was so hard
that tho physicians had to uso a saw to
separato tho parts.
Kappler died of what is technically
known as stenosis, an extremely raro dis
ease. In this case- the ossification had ad
vanced to a remarkable extent. Kappler's
acute suffering for ten years prompted
him to decldo several months ago that his
heart should bo opened to lot his friends
decide what caused his agony and death.
"When I die," he told an acqualntanco
recently, "I want an autopsy performed,"
and this command was Incorporated In his
will which also disposed of an C3tato
worth $50,000. Kappler drank beer In tre
mendous quantities, and physicians sug
gest that this may havo had somo effect
to produco tho condition of his heart. He
said himself that ho drank forty to sixty
glasses of beer or ale every day and
sometimes exceeded tho latter number.

PARKER WILL BE KNIFED.
Bryanites Opposo Clique Thnt Tricked
Them Out of Control.
CHICAGO. Aug. 21. A majority beyond
precedent in Western States and possibly
a victory In Missouri this Is the outlook
of tho Republican National committee.
For this expected triumph tho Republi
cans rely largely on tho Bryan Demo
crats, and Harry S. Now, National com
mitteeman from Indiana, has expressed
positively the conviction that most of
them would vote for Roosevelt Tho sen
timent relied upon to so innuenco frcc-sll-vor
men Is a feeling of resentment and
distrust of Wall streot Influences
"It can bo foreseen by a short study of
human nature what tho Bryan Democrats
will do," said Now. "On tho ono sldo Is
a party which haa always told them that
they were wrong. On tho other Is a man
agement and a committee that they bc
llevo tricked them out of control and
which now has repudiated tho doctrines
that Bryan and tho frcc-sllvcr men bcllcvo
right. Bryan may talk for Parker, but
ho cannot help him. He, can get around
what ho has already said, as shown on
little cards which wo aro sending out.
"I am not chasing rainbows and I do
not prophesy that Mlsourl will go Repub
lican, but wo aro going to havo a surprise
thero somo day. That Stato had 304,940
Republican votes in 1900. No ono knows
how many were prevented voting in St.
Louis, and In tho southwestern part of
tho State thero was practically no or
ganization of the party whatever. Tho
mon In that section aro like tho Kontuckl
ans back In tho mountains nearly all Re
publicans. Now, the Democrats for eight
years have been preaching free sliver to
tho earnest voters of Missouri. This year
tho party is under tho control of tho very
influences that Bryan has condemned as
tho most dangerous In tho country. 1
would not be amazed If there wero a revo
lution In Missouri this fall."

Tho news of the destruction of the No- ll
vlk has been received In a curious man
ner by tho Japaneso public. From a prac
tlcal standpoint It is highly satisfactory,
for tho Novik could havu been most dan- tM
gcrous as a commerce destroyer; but,
considering tho matter from a sentl
mental standpoint, much regret is ex
pressed at tho loss. Tho .Novik has been
splendidly handled and bravely fought
throughout the war. and Japaneso naval
officers and tho public generally have
frequently expressed admiration for the tM
