Year Book of American Association
Presents Facts and Figures.
New York. Jan. 5. The year pook
of the Playground Association of
America which has just been brought
out in this city will show that out of
914 cities and towns m tne umtea
States having a population 6f five
thousand and over, 336 municipalities
are maintaining supervised play
grounds. The actual number of playgrounds
that were being operated , in 267 of
these cities during 1909 was 1,535.
About 56 per cent of these supervised
places for the play of children are lo
cated in the area of greatest density
of nonnlation. in the North Atlantic
I states, where the need for playgrounds
has not only emphasized Itself strongly
upon the social mind, but has been met
to a large extent by the actual estab
lishment of playgrounds. The number
of cities in the North Atlantic states
maintaining playgrounds is 149, and
the number of playgrounds established
in 123 of them is 873. Massachusetts
particularly has led in the playground
movement, us in so many other move
ments for progress and social better
ment. In about 49 per cent of the cities
operating public playgrounds the man
aging authority, wholly or In part, is
the city itself, which is working
through Its board of education, its
park department, or other municipal
bureau or by combining the activities
of two or more departments. In fif
teen cities of the United States the
mayors have appointed special com
missions which are organized as city
departments for the administration of
playgrounds. Playgrounds are no
longer left to the philanthropist: the
cities themselves have awakened to
their responsibilities and are including
the children in their plans.
In 55 of the larger cities local play
ground associations have been estab
lished, and many of the smaller towns
have organized playground committees
that will shortly be converted into per
manent organizations. Of great as
sistance have been the churches, wom
en's clubs. Young Men's Christian As
sociations, Associated Charities, and
public spirited men and women every
where. Tearly Expenditures.
An index of the interest in the move
ment is afforded by a survey of the
figures representing the yearly ex
penditures for sites, equipment, and
the maintenance of playgrounds. In
manv cases specific information on this
point is not available, but 184 cities
have sent '.n reports stating definitely
what it costs them to operate their
playgrounds. The total amount ex
pended during the year by these 184
cities is $1,353,114. In 18 per cent of
the cities the amount of money set
apart for playgrounds was appropriated
entirely by the municipality, while in
23 per cent the city combined with
private organizations in the support of
Some of the smaller cities are , ap
propriating generous amounts of
money. For instance, St. Paul, Minn.,
with a population of 163,065 last year
spent $10,000 on her playgrounds:
Holyoke, Mass., with a population of
45,712 spent $25,000; Newton,. Mass.,
with 33,578 inhabitants spent $9,500,
and East Orange, N. J., having a popu
lation of 21,506 spent $7,600 for the
One of the most Important results
of the studv and thought that have
been devote'd to the recreation prob
lem is the general recognition that the
nlav leader rather than elaborate
equipment is the essential factor ire
the playground. Get tne ngnt, man or
woman to lead boys and girls in their
play, and all other things will follow.
Two hundred and fifty-nine cities in
the United States reported that they
are employing 3,756 such leaders in
Herbert Takes Him to Task for Pre
suming to Have an Opinion on Tariff.
Ewing Herbert of Hiawatha don't
think that any man has a right to know
as much as the president of the United
States, and if any person sets up such a
claim ne is gunty or uese jxiajeoLc, ac
cording to the Brown county editor.
Herbert's opposition to Tom McNeal
is based on Tom's assumption to an
opinion of his own on the tariff bill,
and this, too, when the president has
already explained that bill and en
dorsed it. The king can do no wrong
Of course Herbert is an Anthony post
master, but that has nothing to do with
his opposition to McNeal as a candidate
In regard to McNeal's opening of the
campaign at Hiawatha this montn, Mr.
Herbert relieves his mind as follows in
his Brown County World:
"Chairman of the County Central
Committee Brokaw thinks , that Mr.
McNeal might just as well speak at the
court house. The editor of this paper
extended McNeal the use of Herbert's
hall as a matter of courtesy. Mr. Mc
Neal declined the hall because he says
he may want to swat the editor and he
wouldn t want to do that in his hall.
He was informed that he could swat
the editor In that hall as freely as he
liked. And one other thing is certain
when it .comes to swatting Mr. Mc
Neal isn't the only one who can do a
good job at it. About all he will be
able to do at swatting is to expose his
overbearing and unequaled conceit.
Any man who puts himself up as know
ing more than the president of the
United States and the majority in con
gress, as Mr. McNeal does, shows very
clearly that he has more nerve than
SENTENCED TO HANG.
Negroes Who Assaulted Mrs. Jackson
Disposed of in Short Order.
Kansas City, Jan. 5. George Reynolds
and John Williams, negroes, have been
found ffuilty of assau'ting Mrs. W. F.
Jackson by a jury in the criminal court
here and their sentence fixed at death
by hanging. The verdict of guilty was
returned cn ;he first ballot. The jury
was out but five and one-half minutes.
But two days were occupied in select
ing a jury, hearing the evidence and
returning a verdict. .
Both men will probably be hanged
the Aral week in February. ' Attorneys
for them intimated that they would not
file application for an appeal which
must be done in four days or the sen
tence will be carried out. Every pre
caution has been taken during fhe trial
to protect the prisoners from violence.
The assault was of such a nature that
intense feeling was aroused against the
prisoners. Threats of lynching were
frequently heard. The public was not
aornitted to the triai.
Prisoners in the county jail raised a
bedlam when the verdict became known.
They had previously threatened to
lynch the negroes in the exercise room
of the Jaii. When the threat reached
the officers they removed the negroes
to another part of the prison-

Congressional Investigation of Bal-
Washington. Jan. 5. A congressional
investigation of the general land office
and the forest service of the govern
ment growing out of the socalled Pinr
chot-Ballinger controversy is provided
for in a joint resolution which it was
expected would be introduced in the
two houses of congress today. Senator
Jones was scheduled to offer the resolu
tion in tho senate simultaneously with
its presentation to the house of repre-
eentatives by Representative Humpn-
rey of Washington. ,
President Taft having given his sanc
tion to the proposed Inquiry, the Re
publican leaders in congress have de
termined to press the resolution and its
early, adoption and the subsequent in
auguration of the Investigation without
delay are confidently expected.

Hotel Guests Routed From Beds by
New York, Jan. 5. Guests in the
Broadway Central hotel hastily got to
gether their belongings and rushed into
the corridors today when smoke from a
burning factory building in Mercer
street, directly in the rear, .poured into
the hotel. It was a considerable time
before the clerks and bell boys could
calm the excited guests. The fire itself
was extinguished with small damage.
Another blaze which broke out short
ly afterward in an adjoining building
and which the firemen say could not
have started from the original fire, is
being investigated. It was checked in
Not far away, on Broome street, a
small fire on the first floor of a tene
ment building drove scores of panic
stricken tenants shivering into the
streets. They suffered considerably
from the cold before the firemen ex
tinguished the blaze. -
Victory' for tlie Heirs-in the ;Bnrnes
St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 5. -The injunc
tion procured by . Mrs. Frances B.
Burnes and other heirs of the famous
Burnes estate, which controls much
valuable property here and in St. Jo
seph, against James A. Gibson and
others, who had brought lunacy pro
ceedings in the state courts against
one of the heirs, has been sustained
in the United States court of appeals
James A. Gibson, who was public
administrator at St. Joseph; Joseph
W. Boyd; Fielding Mason, a cousin,
and others were named as defendants
in the proceedings brought by Mrs.
Frances Burnes in ' the lower court.
She alleged that they had entered into
a conspiracy to defraud the legal heirs
of the estate by instituting proceed
ings in the state to have Mary V.
Burnes, one of the heirs, adjudged in
sane and a guardian appointed to care
for her property.
The effect of this decision will give
Mary V. Burnes the right to manage
her own estate.
IT SAVED HER LIFE.
Messenger Boy Read Note Sent by
Woman Planning Suicide.
Denver, Colo., .Jan. 5. The inqulsi
tiveness of a messenger boy saved the
life of a young woman giving the
name of Miss Eva Haines, 19 years
old, who had taken several bichloride
of mercury tablets with suicidal in
tent. The girl wrote a note to a male
friend informing him of her inten
tions and gave it to the messenger to
deliver. The latter read the missive
and hustled to the police station with
it. Police Surgeon Mudd was dis
patched to the girl's room and found
her in great agony. Emetics gave
relief and an hour later the girl was
pronounced out of danger.
She refused to discuss her attempt
to end her life.
. The note gave instructions to "send
word to father. William Brazier, Wat

One Is Forcibly Removed From
Church While at Prayer.
Ashland. Wis., Jan. 5. The ReV.
August Lotz is in jail on a charge of
having attacked the Rev. Gustav A.
Bloede with a revolver. The quarrel
between the two pastors arose because
both were assigned to fill the pulpit
of the German Evangelical association
The Rev. M. Lotz first was assigned
to the pulpi., but later was ordered to
withdraw :n favor of the Rev. Mr.
Bloede. ' "
Lotz refused to turn over the church
property to Bloede, and on December
26 both pastors officiated "at the ser
vice, but Mr. Lotz forcibly . was re
moved as he knelt to pray. New
Year's morning Lotz forced an en
trance to Bloede's house, it is charged,
and threatened his rival with a re
volver. His arrest followed.

surgents are for these same things.
it is slanderous to say that we
can be swerved from the course of
supporting these reforms by the with
holding of any official patronage by
anybody or be induced to support this
or that proposition by the offering of
official sop of any kind. We are com
mitted to the principles which I have
enumerated because we oelieve they
are right and not because the presi
dent or anybody else is for or against
them. ; . .
"It is not the insurgents of the
house, but men like Aldrich and Can
non whom the president will have to
induce to support his policies. The
insurgents are for them already and
have been all the time."
Representative Norris. Nebraska,
added his approval of this declaration
as did Representative Hayes, of Cal
ifornia, who said his fight was solely
against the rules of the house and its
present organization. On the latter
proposition, said Mr. Hayes, he was
ready to fight to the finish.' It was
the independence of the representa
tive in congress which he was con
tending for, he said.
The" insurgents are discussing the
desirability of holding an early meet
ing and ascertaining from President
Taft, where they stand. The calling
of the meeting is in the hands of
Representative Hayes of California.
There was no apparent sign of the
insurgent difficulty on the senate side
of the capitol further than the nu
merous conferences which insurgent
Republicans from the house side were
holding with the senators from their
states regarding the policy which they
were to pursue. ..
Senator Cummins said he had ex
perienced no difficulty with the post
office department or any other gov
ernment department in regard to his

Chicago, Jan. 5. That Chicago may
get the international balloon races
next fall is among the possibilities.
A. Holland Forbes of New York,
winner of the Lallm cup last fall and
one of the most enthusiastic among
amateur aeronauts, yesterday express
ed the hope that the races might be
held here. Mr. Forbes is on a short
visit and during the. day met several
of the local "flyers." C. A. Coey point
ed out the advantages of Chicago to
Mr. Forbes, and even if the big event
should not come here it is said to be
certain that Chicago w;ill have a meet
of its own next summer. . .
"In an unofficial capacity I -would
suggest a series of races in several
cities with good substantial' prizes
preparatory to the .big event,", said Mr.
Forbes. : "This would insure- a large
entry from abroad,- without doubt, as a
good many more - would come were
they assured that iihey could partici
pate in more than, one race."
