IS DEMORALIZING TO
DEEP WATER SAILORS
NEW YORK THE WORST PORT.
There Jack is Beaten and Robbed, l
Shanghaied and Sold for Gold

From the .ew xortv ouu. ,
Foreign seaman say that the port
of New York is a hard and uncharita-
ble place, and that its reputation -t

chantmen, one hears curses on York,
the gay town; York, the touch town,
where Jack gets beaten and robbed,
shanghaied and sold for gold. But
though he may get as far away from i
Manhattan as is possible, he is al
ways sure to turn about and come
In this he is never disappointed.
His American brother is amply pro
tected by the Seamen's union, the
Legal Aid society, aud the Marine
hosnltal. and the land sharks are
i forced to "depend for their game sole
j ly on "foreign bottoms." The "game"
', mav have deserted his -ship, prompt-
ed by a curiosity to see things" in
New York; he may be just out or a
hospital, physically weak, but strong
in his desire for dissipation; his ship
may be waiting for a cargo, or he
may be a tramp, "bumming" his way
home. One may see these poor fel
lows along the river fronts the most
exposed places in the city in this
weather loafing in front of the grog
.shops, -or in some hallway sleeping
off a night's org'.
One may flind samples of ill treat
ed sailors on almost any morning at
the dispensaries of the little seamen's
mission and the lower East side.
"What do you think of New York?"
was asked of a young Englishman,
who was having his wounds dressed, j
one morning lst week. The man
had been drugged, beaten, and rob
bed th? night before. "It ain't quite
ja.3 bad as Portland. Ore." was tne
answer. Portland, and not. as in old
days. Port Said, is the seamen's stan
dard of comparison for the ports of
Present day seamen come far from
being the strong, rugged men -that
romance and fiction have made them
out to be. Deepsea vessels that sail
the world round pass three and four
climatic changes in one cruise. The
men are naturally improvident and
seldom carry sufficient clothing. At

States Marine hospital. 500 "outdoor"
cases were attended to last month,
and 95 at the hospital at Stapleton.
S. I. The sick of the foreign mer

to Long Island College hospital,
which, last month, cared fcr not less
than forty patients. This, in com

j a foreign port, and shipmasters who
want to keep their crews never give
them shore leave. Sickness is the
only excuse that opens a way for
Jack ashore, and consequently this
plea is used earlv and often. So.
I to protect himself frcm fakers, the
master hires the first doctor that
comes over the side. He examines
the men for sick leave, prescribes for
those he can treat ott board, and
sends the others to the hospitals.

the beginning of the war to enter the
