CITY PLAYGROUNDS. 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 the playgrounds. 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 children's recreation. 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 their playgrounds. WHEAL'S ASSUMPTION. 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 against Herbert. 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 brains." 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- SANTA FE TIE UP BROKEN. Traffic Resumed After Delay of Three Days. Albuquerque, N. M.", 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. The Mann Panama canal bill provid ing for the . reorganization of the ad ministration of the, canal zone comes up for further consideration in the house and its author. Representative Mann, Illinois, is hopeful of having the measure put on its final passage be fore the end -of the day's session. Its chances of success in the senate are less bright than In the house as sev eral senators who visited the canal zone during the holiday recess of congress have returned convinced that a change in the rovernment of the zone such as is proposed in the Mann bill would be inadvisable. THREEFIRES CHECKED. Hotel Guests Routed From Beds by Smoke. 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 short order. 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. - INJUNCTION UPHELD. Victory' for tlie Heirs-in the ;Bnrnes Estate Case. 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 here. 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 erloo, Ind." , PREACHERS FIGHT. 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 church here. 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. Chinese Studying Navies. Berlin, Jan. 5.

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 patronage.

"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."
