HOBOES THREW J. E. HOW OUT
They Didn't Like the Millionaire Lead
er's Ideas of Philanthropy-A
New Orleans.-James Eads How of
St. Louis, the self-styled "millonaire
hobo leader." who first organized "the
('asual, Unskilled and Migratory
Workers of the World," and called the
first national hobo convention, was re
pudiated as a leader by the hoboes in
convention here recently. How tried
to Inject socialism into the proceed
ings and was told to get out
Tired of How and the fight between
him and President Jeff Davis over the
question of socialism, the hoboes broke
up the convention of the "Internation
al Brotherhood Welfare Association."
threw How and his principles out and
organized a "hobo mass meeting."
How saia he was not a Socialist, but
merely a "philosophical anarchist."
and tried to tell the delegates that
Jeff Davis was himself a dyed-in-the
thrust that unfortunate municipality
into a deficit of $170.000,000. Both
views-and every sort of intermediate
view-are held violently and convul
sively by men of equal sincerity, intel
ligence and conservatism.
The only other undertaking financed
by a city which comes within shouting
distance of the subway plan for sheer,
brazen immensity is the Catskill wa
terworks system, which New York
city is building in a modest, depre
cating sort of way, so that one hard
ly hears of It. When this is complet
ed, which will be in three years or so,
its chain of reservoirs will be fed by
646 miles of water shed. The 15 by
17 foot tunnel, which will deliver 500,
000,000 gallons of water a day to New
York city, will be 92 miles long. Un
der Storm King and the Hudson' river
it will be 1.100 feet deep. For miles
it will range between 700 and 800 feet
below the city's doorsteps. It will
cost $200.000.000 or thereabouts, and
will supply the needs of the city for the
next generation, just as it is hoped
that the new subway can be stretched
to fit the straphangers' demands for
half a century. The two enterprises,
forced by conditions upon the city.
will cost $500,000,000.
It should be noted that New York's
net funded debt is $794.949.404-as
sessed against 5.000.000 people-on
which the annual interest is $35,473.
685. The total debt of the nation is
$1.027,575.000, on which interest
amounting only to $22.787.000 is paid.
and which is shared by 96,000.000 peo
Superlatives seem to be justified.
The pfesent subway was built to
carry 400.000 people daily. It is carry
ing two and one-half times that num
ber, thanks to the straphanging genius
of &he New Yorker.

of the large number of states, it is
usually very difficult to grasp the
broad geographical differences regard

factures by means of comparisons
among individual states and particu
laxly so when they are arranged al
phabetically and thus separated from
of those with which they are geographic

statistics with necessary comments
are presented for these divisions. Be

"Again, in the population statistics
in the abstract, details as to each sub
ject are given for urban and rural
communities separately. Pundamen
tal differences in industrial and so
cial life between cities and rural dis
tricts result in marked differences in
the composition and characteristics of
the population. In many cases it is
impossible to understand the differ
ences between states or sections of
the country except through this dis
tinction between urban and rural pop
ulation. Very little use of this im
portant distinction was made in the
population statistics of previous cen
Ihe most important departure from
previous methods of publication made
