jb1tem and $qSu4r *heiyr Convenienoes Approprriated by Persons Who Do Not Pay a Gent. ntreuding in the Lobby, Reading Room, Parlor, Toilet Booms--Approprt. asting the Easy hairs. It has long been an unsolved problem among hotel keepers, says the New York Bun, how to avoid being imposed upon by a very large class of persons who habitually make use of, various conveniences of hotels 4 without in any way compensating the pro. I prietors. It is, for instance, a daily occur rence for those who are not guests to make use of the parlors of hotels for places of meeting, to use the toilet rooms, to lounge I about the smoking rooms, to use the hotel stationery, and in other ways to appropriate to their own use, without payment, facilties which are intended for the accommodation a of hotel guests. The subject has been much .lked about among hotel proprietors, and many expedients have either been proposed or adopted as a remedy for this growing evil. In a number of well known hotels in New York the evil has grown to enormous proportions. As far as the toilet rooms are concerned, it was at one time proposed to adopt a scheme of charge for admission, I and one inventive genius event went ®o far as to propose a machine on the principle of "Put a nickle in the slot." It is, however, true that, after much de liberation and consultation and comparing notes and relating experiences, hotel pro prietors have generally come to the conolu. sion that these evils must in some measure f be borne, although they may be pieyented e in a degree by various expedients. It is, a therefore, now the custom in the larger t hotels to post various notices about the t: public places indicating that they are re- b served for guests of the house. Such no- C tices are posted in the toilet room and in i the smoking room, and over the chairs in E the billiard rooms, and even the seats that p are placed near the hotel offices for the nc- T commodation of the bell boys awaiting the eumons of the hotel cleik to answer the call of guests. It is also an essential part of the equip- GI ment of all hotels to have one or more perl- g sons constantly on the lookout to warn off I these unprofitable visitors. Such of these guests as are obviously unclean or "crook. ot ed" are unceremoniously bounced. There is, however, a very large class of well - dressed and gentlemanly appearing persons who do not scruple to thus impose on hotel proprietors day after day. With such per- El sons a gentler, but quite as effective, meth od of warning off is adopted. Sometimes ar the gentleman will receive a delicate in- t, timalion by word of mouth that his pres.- b enceie not desired. Sometimes he will be asked if he has any particular business in the house. It may be that a note will be slipped into his hand, suggesting that he has been accommodated for a sufficient ti'me. Speaking on this subject, Mr. E. L. Mer rifield of the Continental hotel, the presi dent of the Hotel Keeper's association, re cently said: "To a certain extent hotel keepers recognize that the houses are public. l hey are aware that from many reasons ,persons who do not patronize their hotel may find occasion to use these facilities. T'hey know for instance that their own rousts, during their stay in the city may find occasion to visit other hotels, and use their conveniences. They are quite willingi to permit a fair share of their own con veoiiences to be used by the guests of other hotels. but they have found it absolutely iecessary to protect themselves by constant watchinu and by the prompt ejection of habitual offenders. "It is surpiisina how some men will per sirst in little mean impostures of this kind. There was a nice little well-dressed old :elntleman who some time ago, although It a puest of the Continental hotel,( as in the constant habit of spending aportion of the morning in the sitting room. He would seat himself in the most comfortable chair and wateh for any morning paper which might be left momentarily unguarded by a guest. This thing went on so long that it got to be a matter of merriment among the bell boys and waiters to watch the old gen tleman as he daily pounced upon his 'free reading.' One morning one of the bell boys laid a trap for the old gentleman and baited it with a newspaper towhich a string was invisibly attached, and when the old gentleman stooped down to pick up the paper it was mysteriously whisked away. He saw at once that he had been watched, and he immediately picked up his hat and left the hotel and we have never seen him since. An imposition of a more serious kind is the use of toilet rooms by strangers. The more commodious and comfortable they are, the greater seems to be the rush of unauthorized strangers to use them. In our own hotel this is a source of inconvenience to our guests, and notwithstanding our notices and the fact that we station a servant in the toilet room to warn off unauthorized persons, the evil continues. But, so far as I have known, no adequate remedy has yet been proposed by the most experienced hotel proprietor. Of course it would be impracticable to charge a fee of admission to the toilet rom, because it would be a petty annoyance tothe guests, Some hotel proprietors look upon these con veniences in the light of advertisements. They say that it brings people to the hotel, I that although they may not be boarders they patronize the bar or the cafe or the billiard room, and that in one way or another the establishment will receive com pensation." Mr. Charles Sprague, of the Grand Cen tral hotel, chairman of the executive com mittee of the Hotelkeepers' association, said: "Of course we are imposed upon. It seems to be a well settled opinion, how ever, among hotel proprietors that the most that can be done is to check the evil, and that there is no possibility of checking it altogether. I was talking with Mr. W. D. Garrison, the secretary of our association, the other day with reference to the Grand Union hotel. They have recently estab lished there a very large, commodious and exuensive toilet room with all the modern conveniences, and a very elaborate affair. I said to him: "How are you going to pre vent this place being used more by the pub lic than by your guests?' I know that his hotel, being situated near the Grand Cen tral depot, was the constant resort of many persons coming in by the trains. Mr. Gar rison replied: 'I don't want to keep them out. Some of them will take rooms here, some of them will go to the bar, some will patronize the restaurant, and if they do not do so to-day they may some other day, or send their friends here.' " Mr. Srague continued: "I am making large alterations Rand improvements of this character myself. I am doing this, of course, for the accommodation of my gueste, but as the keeper of a public house I must expect and do expect that the public will in some degree use my house. If I find anvbody who is an undesirable person, who either habitually or occasionally, or even once, visits my hotel. I shall not stand on ceremony in asking him to leave. As a rule, foice is not necessary. A mere indi cation to the visitor that his presence is not required will be sufficient to relieve us. It is a very common thing for strangers to come in and request the i;rivilege of using our conveniences, which we always cheer tally grant. Iat we have no room fcr 'boms'and loafers and frauds of any kind, and we feel justiiled in protecting ourselves from impoeltion by them. It is, however, impossible to etation a man at the door of hotel and to aek every per son who enters the nature of his business, or to undertake to keep out every one who is not strictly entitled to entecr. At the same time I believe it to be the universal practice, while keeping a lookoat for imposters, to do it as quietly and unobtrusively as possible without mak Ing lsnes and without creating disturb .. t of lejsant ta Dto be man the eant . to M oA o an by other hotel proprieto imostors form a portion of the ltAmy of hotel 'beats," for whom the h tro prietor is oonstantly on the lookout, rank with the unwelcome customers who prapty the sugar bowls in restaurant, who consume inordinate amounteof free Lunohes and in other ware impose upon the lberal it of keepers of places of public resort Where they make their appearance they are pretty sure to be spotted by lynx-eyed wai tel or euterintendents and are not al lowed to continue long without notice to quit. It is for them that the bouncer lies in wait, and the espoinage to which they are perpetually subjected is a aonatant oheo pnton their movements. Care is now taken in all well regulated hotels to keep such persons out of the guests' quarters, and in the newest hotels are ais taken to place most of the conveniences referred to inlocalities where only guests can reach them.
