Hotel men of New Y'ork state and city, Massachu setts, Connecticut and elsewhere met here today to organize the Interstate Hotel Men's Protective association, which will try to secure uniform auto mobile laws throughout the country and the repeal of the law that went in to effect ire this state today. The new law in this state does not recognize licenses issued by other states which discriminate against New York by allowing New Y'ork own ers only a limited time to take out li censes when traversing their territory. "It is certain," said F. H.

Al though the escretary of state has de rided not to enforce the new law until Sept. 9. because it is so much misun derstood, it is actually in force now and arrests may be made." This spirit. of recrimination is what the. hotel men deplore.

While New York, according to the English census returns of 1909, is still 2,662,857 souls behind London in the race for the greatest city of the world, she is sp far ahead of the other great cities of the globe that there is little likelihood of any of them catching her in many decades. The census of 1909 showed Greater London's population to be 7,- 429.740 as against 6,581.372 in 1901. That New Y'ork is slowlv catching London is shown by" the fact that in eight years London's increase - was 848,368, while that of New York for ten years was 1,329,681. ". PUBLIC DEBT INCREASES - BY: NEARLY FOUR MILLIONS. Government . Report for Second Monti of Fiscal Year. Washington, Sept.- 1.

The increase in public debt, which is a complete turnover of four millions in round numbars from the month of July, is due largely to an excess of national bank deposits over redemp tions. The general rule of excess of expenditures over receipts during July and August is also a contributory causs. The working balance is a shade bet ter than the close of July.
