t erica 1 utterances. He seems to be
lieve that the republicans selected as
judges will violate 'their oaths of of
fice and he forgets that he puts him
self in the position of wanting judges
who will count his fellow in. That is
the legitimate inference from his
words. He also forgets that in each
voting precinct there will be two dem
ocrats who will see the votes honestly
counted, no matter for whom they are
cast. He forgets that, with all the cry
of fraud raised by his faction, no fraud
has been found.
Mr. Keyes would do better not to
try to rake the Cullom chestnuts off

to throw out insinuations that men as

I.aurence Hufton cites as the most
amusing, and, at the time, most per
plexing typographical error in his long
Journalistic and literary career, one
which occurred in an article he wrote
at the time of the consolidation of the
Aftor. Tilden and Inox libraries, in
which he was made to express the fol
lowing remarkable opinion : "New York,
perhaps, has never fully realized until
this day how greatly it has been en
riched by the receipt of the vest but
tons of James Lenox!" He had written
New York is proceeding rapidly with
the abolition of the home. More mil
lions are being spent for hotels than
" ever before. This is somewhat remark
able In view of the development of the
subways which are supposed to give
the people greater onport unities for
living out beyond the hurry and rush
of the city. The fact seems to be that
the New Yorker is wedded to hotel
life. It brings him nearer the goal of
his existence, work, amusement, ease
and separation from personal worry.
Hy paying for it he can get the hotel
to do everything for him except feed
ing him and putting him to sleep.
Philadelphia as Graft Center.
Just at this time the city of Phila
delphia seems to be the graft center of
the universe. More sensational dis
closures have been made. It is found
that there has been a band of official
thieves who have formed an organized
power for robbing the people, looting
the public treasury, bartering away all
the most sacred obligations of office,
and debauching themselves and their
city in a most disgraceful and crim
Other great cities are congratulating
Philadelphia, and a very optimistic
view is being taken of the situation.
The Chicago Record-Herald says:
' Every time that Philadelphia dis
closes a fresh variety of graft or cor
ruption there is reason for rejoicing.
These things had been hidden so long
that it had come to be part of the tra
ditional belief of Philadelphia politi
cians and citizens alike that they would
never be exposed. Now every fresh
exposure is a fresh proof of the depth
to which the public Is stirred and a
fresh reason for believing that reform
will be thorough.
"The latest exposure concerns the do
ings of a crowd of sordid contractors
with sordid iolitical associations. The
details of the stealings are indifferent
to people outside of Philadelphia. Each
city has an opportunity now and then
to study such details on the native
heath. The thing that is important is
that the offender be punished and thai
a lesson be taught.
"Philadelphia corruption can be
traced up through the state govern
ment to the national government. It is
a menace to Illinois and to every oth
er state. It does not allow the hum
blest citizen of Chicago to escape with
out bearing his share of the burden it
causes. And so the more exposure the
better for Chicago as well as Phila
Encouragement of exposure is now
almost universal. The people of every
city are demanding publicity of deals
involving public funds. ' They want to
see, and they have a right to see who
are making the deals with city funds,
what the character of the deal is. and
where the money goes.
During King Alfouso"s visit to Lon
tlort several stories were told of how
he at times shocks the Spanish dons
with wild escapades. All these anec
dotes, apocryphal or otherwise, helped
his popularity with the Hritish public,
showing as they did that his 15-year-old
majesty in a real boy and not alto
gether a royal milksop. He rides reck
less races with voting officers, rings
up the guard unexpectedly from mere
motives of mischief and generally plays
the same pranks as other lads of his
age. Among his own subjects of the
rank and file these pranks do him good
for even the Spaniard likes to think
that his sovereign can do something
human and unceremonious.
Dr. Darlington, of the New York
City health department, says that heart

degree there, caused by the strenuous
life the residents lead. "The hurry

clamor of metropolitan life, the late
uppers, the elaborate food, the stimu
latfng drinks, the constant restless
quest of excitement, money and pleas
