NEW BRITAIN. AUSTRIANS LOYAL IN CHJITY WORK $48,000,000 Contributed to Re lieve Saiferings of War (Correspondence of the Asso. Press.) Vienna, Dec. 28 Enormous sums of money have been collected in Austria Hungary for charitable purposes dur ing the war. No reliable figures on the total obtained are yet available, but estimates place it as high as 240, 000,000 crowns (approximately $48, 000,000). Much of this money ' has been applied already, but large sums are still available for the needs of those for whom it was collected. The money has been raised in every manner the fertile brains of social leaders and newspaper editors could devise. Charity teas and suppers; the sale of needlework done by society people; benefit' performances at the theatres; the public sale of art ob jects which people were willing to do nate; and a hundred similar enter prises have given keen competition to the plain subscription and collec tion cainWgns wife Jy'thlhevspa pers. Aajenrvan14art exhibition sale is avpdfress, fr0m which both the admission fees and entire tr6 Ceeds of sale will go to. the fund for blind veterans. Some of the foremost palmers of the country "have contrib uted to the collection, and while many of the pictures are by' Unknown men and women, there Is not one In the lotthat does not have merit of a high Order." Going on at the same time are several series of lectures on the war by the Austro-Hungarian and German war correspondents, invalided officers and statesmen. Ardor Undiminished. AH social classes lake an interest in the work, and a remarkable feature of it is that a year of collections has left the ardor of ' organizers and of the public almost undiminished.

Of these a ten heller (two cerits) tax on all bills Is probably the most successful. Of newspaper collections that of the Vienna Neue Freie Presse has been the most remarkable. It has included the raising of large sums for blind veterans, for prisoners of war, for Christmas presents for soldiers, for the supply of artificial limbs, for the Bulgarian and Austrian Red Cross, for the tuburcUlar soldiers, for widows and orphans for assistance to needy ar tists, for fugitives from the southern theater of war, for Increasing the submarine fleet, and numerous other specific purposes. - Clever Scheme Devised. A, prominent Budapest newspaper. Az Est, for instance,' collected nearly 2,000,000 crowns to help the people In the Carpathians and Northern Hun gary to rebuild their villages which had been destroyed during occupation by the Russians. A clever scheme was devised for this collection. It is cus tomary in Hungary to make ' presents to a woman on a day carrying her name in the calendar. For instance on St. Mary's day, all Marys in Hungary are remembered by their friends. Az East suggested that the money to be spent in this way be turned over . to the village-building fund. v Much of the money that is being collected is the fruit of little self-denials, a single day's list showing such entries as the following: "Instead of buying a new dress, 200 crowns; in place of birthday pres ents for my father, 80 crowns; instead of flowers for the grave of Capt. 100 crowns; to give satisfaction In an affair of honor, 2,000 crowns; for the birth of a son, 200 crowns." Loyally Give . Support, There is no doubt that Austria-Hun gary's population without distinction to class, has come loyally to the sup port of those in the field and their families, and those whom the war has deprived temporarily of means of live lihood. While the exchange of Red Cross and similar funds between Austria-Hungary and Germany has been solely a matter of courtesy between allies. Austria-Hungary has already spent the greater part of a million f rowns in Red Cross work in Bulgar ia. It has sent military equipment and supplies worth over a . million crowns to Turkey, and even in Poland Austro-Hungarian charity work has been felt. As soon as conditions in Serbia make it possible, it is under stood that money arid supplies will be sent there also. FREIGHT CONGESTION.

BURTON - i Blames Him for Present System ol Waterway Improvements (Special to th Herald.) Washington, D. C, Dec. 30 "A leopard cannot change its spots but it seems than an American politician with the presidential bee in his bon net, may change the views of a life time 5n a great question of national policy." The speaker was Jos. E. Ransdell, j . . -i U. S. Senator from Louisiana &nu president of the National Rivers and Harbors congress, who went on to say: "Ex-Senator Burton, in uie January 'Munsey' says, 'War has not been de clared against waterway improve- j ments in the United States,' yet . ; careful reading of his article shows ; that, the ex-Senator- has certainly de- clared most virulent war against near ly all our interior streams on which j freight is carried in competition with j railroads. I Power Almost Supreme. "Mr. Burton criticizes in the sharp est manner our method of making vaterway improvements. During the ten years that he was chairman of j tvi Rivp.rs and Harbors committee ; his power over waterway legislation j was almost supreme, and he is more ! responsible for the present system than any other man. If it is bad, which I deny, then the principal blame rests on him. While he was hair-man. some of the projects he 1 nnw attacks so bitterly, notably the Trinity river, were inaugurated. Why did he not prevent it, or at least op pose it, in the Halls of Congress? The record shows he was a strong cham pion of the trinity at that time. Aneordlne to Mr. Burton, our im provements for harbors "for the most part have been profitable, while hundreds of millions spent on rivers have been wasted. Let us bear in mind that harbors are railroad ter minals, where cars are unloaded on to boats, and in turn receive freight from them. There Is no competition whatsoever between harbor and rail road, but each is the necessary com plement and adjunct of the other. The river, however. Is a separate and distinct agency of transportation hich competes with the railway and carries freight at lower rates. Tho French say 'Cherchez la femme,' find the woman. It does not seem diffi cult to find her in this case Article Misleading. "Mr. Burton's article distorts facts, juggles figures, and is thorough ly misleading. Like the Devil's quo tation of Scripture, it contains enough truth to fool the unwary. His charge of 'waste of public funds for political purposes, 'is on a par with his other statement that 'It is generally felt that a congressional district is en titled to' $100,000 in Rivers and Har j bors bill. I have been in congress for ! over sixteen years; have assisted In framing many Rivers and Harbors bills: and know that his bald asser tions have no foundation in fact. They are slanders against many of the nation's best citizens who have ad vocated the improvements; against the Engineer Corps of the Army; and against the congress pf the United States. I deny them explicitly and defy Mr. Burton 'to prove them." "KISS YOUR MONEY GOOD-BYE" CURTIS taxes- It is human nature burdens onto someone else. tory owners wont reduce t dends to pay any tax.

Councilman O. F. Curtis made a last and vain effort to block the con tinuance of the municipal ice house at a special meeting of the common council last evening. His arguments fell on deaf ears and when a vote was taken he was hopelessly outnumbered. The council met to act on a recom mendation from the board of finance and taxation appropriating $4,100 for repairs to the icehouse and harvesting' the crop- The report and the resolu tion for its adoption were presented by Alderman E. A. Parker. Councilman Curtis made a brief and pessimistic speech, prefacing it by stating that he knew the majority of those present were not in accord with his views. "I think the council and the city will make a mistake In passing this recommendation," he said. "I under stand that the main argument is that the icehouse helps the poor and keeps the price of ice down. I can't see It The passage of this will hurt the peo ple you are aiming to benefit.
