$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

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. Constant

the character of self-imposed taxa
tion in small amounts. 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.

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

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."

Councilman Makes Final and Losing
Effort to Cause Blow-out In
Municipal Ice Business.
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
