AMERICANS IN LONDON.
AN ENGLISH VIEW OF THEIR AC
TIONS AND MANNERS.
Ther Is Ni Need of Travelers from
America Stppg at EnglUU Hotels,
llecaase Houses Run Upon the Ameri
can Flan Are Numerous and Good.
Oue of the glaring anomalies observable
in the net ions of wealthy Americana who
come to London in these days is that they
almost invariably stay at the old f.ixhioned
hotels conducted upon the English plan.
And not only do they select those w hich
are merely different in their style of gen
eral management from American hotels,
but easterly seek admittance to those whose
ways and customs would have been an
tiquated in the reign of Queen Anne and
are renowned for the observance of all
those petty rules which make the lives of
the English upper classes ridiculous in the
eyes of the rest of the world, but without
which there are some people who fervently
believe the nation would not be safe nor
the crown secure.
Why Americans should do this is past
comprehension, unless it be the result of
that blind infatuation for everything Eng
lish which is the controlling principle of
the Anglomaniac's existence. It can not
be because they like it really like it. If
it be done for the gratification of curiosity
purely and only we might be p.ble to under
stand it. If American Indies and gentle
men of large and unlimited means want to
see what a characteristic English hotel is
like, and go to it so to see, it is one thing.
lint if they go lecuse English people go
to it, and that, therefore, it must be "t he
correct thing to do, don't yon know," it is
quite another. Iain afraid the latter mo
tive controls the whole business.
AMKRICAX HOTELS IN LONDON.
All I can say is it is pitiful and enough
to bring a blush of shame to the faces of
real Americans. It is not as if there were
no hotels in Irfmdon condncted on the
American plan, and, as in the days when
George Wilkes wrote '"Europe in a Hurry,"
there were nothing but dark and diugy
little English hotels to go to. But there
are dozens of hotels such as are the rule in
America and under tiie roofs of which you
would le instilled in supposing an Ameri
can lady or gentleman would feel thor
oughly at home.
At any oue of the modern hotels any
American, with an American love of com
fort, might lie contented. There they can
have hot and cold water, bathrooms, a
billiard room, an elevator and a table
d'hote. Everything (with perhaps a slight
English tinge) which they are accustomed
to in America tries' can have at t hese hotels.
let Americansseem to prefer the opposite.
Instead of going to the sort of hotels they
have been used to all their lives, and their
fathers before them the sort of hotels
which even some orf nmiudi-d Enidish
people are generous enough to admit are !
the best hotels in the world they turn
their backs u;oii them and rush to Long's,
Claridge s and Money s, where they are no
more really at home than a -bird would 1
in a cage.
Asa rule, the better clashes in England
do not stay at hotels in Loudon. Some do,
of course, but tiie majority have town
residences of their own, and when in Iu
dou during the season they live in them.
But sometimes, when obliged to be in town
when the te.-tsou is over, they may go for a
night or two to a hotel and to hon-ls such
as Long's and Claridge's.
IKiTF.I.S EM.UMIMF.X PREFER.
But they go to hotels of this kind simp
ly because they prefer them, and they pre
fer them because they have always been
accustomed to them. They would sooner
walk up stairs than he carried up by a
"lift;" they would rather have their bath
in a portable tub by their ledside tfian in
the most elalKirately appointed bathroom;
they would sooner shave themselves than
go down to the hotel liarber shop, and are
decidedly happier with a small can of hot
water, brought up by the chamiennaid,
than they would be if drawing it them
selves from a silver plated tap. The wry
things they do not like in a hotel Ameri
cans do (or ought to); the very things they
do like Americans do not (or ought not to).
Yet is all reversed directly Americans
come to Ijotidon.
Another thing: It costs a lot more
money to stay t Long's or Claridge's than
at the American hotels or rather those
English hotels which are kept on the
American plan. Besides which, all and
every of the great swells of high life, when
ever they may be compiled to go to a Lon
don hotel, always go to Long's or Clar
idge's, or one of the other leading West
End "family" hotels. In which case their
arrivals and departures are carefully
chronicled and published in the "Fashion
able Intelligence" coin inn of The Morning
Post. The Americau plan hotels do not,
Soar to this height.
"KWAWiKH" PEOPLE ARItOAD.
The great puxxle to Englishmen in this
respect is why Americans want to show off
in England. They can understand their
liking to live well and have nice things
and to live in good houses as they them
selves do; but what they do not compre
hend is why they do not prefer America to
to swagger in. English "swagger," in its
truest sense anil meaning, is indulged in
only in England. 1 allude, of course, to
the tiest ieople. They swagger at home
because it j perfectly legitimate that they
should. It is their right and privilege and
habit to do swagger things and to be
thought very swagger by people beneath
them. It is t liCsttobs who swagger when
they go abroad on tiie astonish-lne-native
principle. They cannot swagger at home
and so t hey go abroad.
On the other hand, the really swagger
people in England are quiet, unobtrusive
and simple when they travel, or go to stay
anywhere out of England. If you see a
man traveling with half a dozen servants,
showing up at every station and a great
row and noise going on whenever he makes
his appearance, be sure lie is a retired
tailor or buUer maker. The dukes and
earls go about like other people. They
keep their swagger for their own country,
atid do not ssert themselves abroad.
Therefore, t he"y can tiot i magi ne why A meri
cans who have a standing at home are not
content with it.
I suppose you might talk and write till
doomsday, but you could not hope to im
press these American swaggerers abroad
with the utter "bad form," in English
eyes, of the things they do.. Of course.
tbey have a right to do what they like, if
they can pa v for it. But liecause a man is
able to pay for a thing is not a just ification
for his doing it or having it. Loudon Cor.

' The Eternal Fitness.
It was on a Second avenue surface car.
A woman was standing np and holding
to a strap, while among those bitting
down was a man so fat and bulky that
he certainly occupied the space required
by two ordinary persons. . The woman
standing up must have realized this fact,
for she looked down upon him in a cold,
icy manner. He saw that she did, and
he felt it his duty to explain:
"Madam, in the . first place I am sc
awkward on my legs that I should tum
ble down if I tried to stand up in a car.
In the next place, whilo I occupy twe
seats I have paid two fares. Conductor!"
