BMk' The tenants of tho opart m ont. houso on
BBW, fourth avenuo and Blxty.second street, who
BMr'' iwero so suddenly turned out of house and
BBtf '.homo because tho building was condemned
BKV as unsafe, aro indignant at the treatment they
BEj received and talk of suing tho New York Life
BB1: Mnsurance Company, the owner, for damages.
BB&. , The Building law gives an owner of an nn-
BA' .safe) building only until 1 p. M. on the day
BCfp' following the notification of its condition to
BKt coramonco its repair or removal,
BjBf I If the insurance company people knew of
BJgK tho condition of tho building when th'oy
Hwt'' rested the apartments they might properly
Bm& De held answerable in damages. But if thoy
Bex'1 only loomed of tho danger when they or.
HJfi 'dered tho building cleared, their promptness
BJn& vas commendable, and it is questionable
BJur' whether any court would condemn them in
BKy (damages for an anxioty to provent the Ions of
BjEi- human life.
Kf Would the tenants who aro so angry with
BB" the company for turning them out so sum-

Hpk' Tho Boston and Maine Hailroad bill, with a
BJkv trong taint of corruption, passed the Now
BM' Hampshire Legislature yesterday. This iB
BBi; only one of many steps in the aggrandizing
BJBr ,, Bhemes of said corporation.
BBW Thno was when the railroads of BNew
BB Xnglond' formed a sort of democracy. They
BB wera admirably managed, and there was a
BBr' .jicalthy.degTce of competition. But a decided
Bflpt change has passed of late over tho aspect of
BC affairs. It is a great game now between the
BlRL Boston and Jlfiino, tho Boston and Albany
BJkT nd the Old Colony companies. Competing
wl' luifca have been gobbled up and indepondont
BBf broaches and connections absorbed in all
BJw directions. In several of tho Btates tho cor-

BjEi " Ap I a convict or a folon ?" asked one

The mutter seems to turn on whether tho

Wallpole Warren 1h a .good rootor, ho Is cor.
tainly a laborer with an armudauce of work
to do. Anion,1? olhor things ho should labor
to roform tho liarsh method of treating poor

tho Trinity corporation. But if bo 1b not n
laborer, then ho is a man of leisure, and not
a good rootor. Mr, Kenxuody seems to have
clinched his arguunont on both sides.
A suit will bo brought against tha Trinity

A very healthy babe was born In the newspaper
world tn New York this week, It being an evening
edition of the New York Wobld, price l cent,
which first appeared night .before last, getting a
circulation that day of over 111,400 copies. Last
night Its Issue ran up to 115,630.
Buch great success at the first Jump Is all the
more wonderful when It Is known that New York
was well supplied with penny evening papers be

accomplishment. And lung may It be I
. Vom rA Dotton Jlirtkli.
Tne new Evikino Would of New York city con
tains a large amount of entertaining news, pre
sented In a highly attractive manner. Until quite
recently the evening field has been one which Now
York Journalists have looked upon as hardly worth
cultivating ; that la to say, the great newspapers
have been all morning papers, and the newspapers
Issued In the afternoon have had but a relatively
small circulation. Tho enormous circulation In
stantly gained by tho Would may be due to the
fact that previous efforts by New York Journalists
to build up the circulation of an evening paper
have not been properly directed, and that there la
an immense field there that has been for a long
time waiting for the proper cultivator.
tVom rb-2ay'f I Proarw Ilalo-Amrrtcano,
When Mr. Joseph Pulitzer proprietor and editor
of Tub WORLD-on tho 10th of May, 1683, bought
that Journal from WUIlam U. Uurlbert, a
a representative of a society of capl
tallsts, Its circulation only reached zT,!)3 copies.
From 1888 to 18ST (that Is In four years and a few
months) the 2"M copies had grown with marvel
ous and amazing geometrical progression to 310,000
of a dally edition, not to mention the speulal Bun
day edition, which reaches 0,000.
Many causes contributed to this success the
llghtntng-like quickness tn gathering news, brill
iant reporting of events, telegrams, an extraor
dinary quantity of reading matter, battles
fought lu the name of tho people and
of public morals against Aldermen, the
kings of finance, business, Ac all
of which battles were won, the culprits for the
most part landing In Sing 81ifS; good business
management, and the constant aspiration gained
and maintained, to serve and battle for the peoplo
with earnest sincerity. And all this la
owing to the tact, shrewdness and daring
enterprise of Mr. Pulitzer, whose Iron will trans
fuses Itself Into every part of his glgantlo enter
prise, from the managing editor to the office-boy,
all of whom are most liberally paid, but at the
same time subjected to military discipline. In
short, Tub Would Is a financial and political
power such as has rarely been known In Journal,
isui.
And now Mr. 1 ulltzer, not satisfied with tho
morning Wokld, has Issued an Evbnino World,
which, Judgluc from Its success on the first day.
w ill w Ithout effort bo u worthy offspring of tho
mornlug edltlrm, and will easily eclipse its evening
contemporaries. Tha first number appeared on
Monday and reached a circulation of 111,410
copies.

ers settled amicably, but at last, seeing that
her business and livlihood wero boing mali
ciously tor away from her, sho humiliated
herself and made her appeal in person to tho
Commissioners. They, however, remained
obstinate, and refused to rescind their
order denying her agent admission to Castlo
Garden.
Four weeks ago two Arabs arrived at Castlo
Garden. Thoy wore destined for Omaha,
Neb., and not having sufficient money to pay
their railroad faro over tho pool lines, they
wero cast asido by this grasping and illegal
combination which holds sway over Castlo
Garden. Tho runner who solicit sbonrdcrs for
tho Ruth saw them and persuaded them to go to
Ids houso, agreeing to obtain thorn tickets for
Omaha outside tho Garden considerably less
less than asked for by tho pool. The man
agreed, and, after paying Barney Biglin's ex
press agent 00 cents to take threo bundles to
the hotel, they loft the Garden in company
with the runner. Tho following day the
runner took the Arabs to tho office of tho Old
Dominion Railroad, on Bawling Green, and
obtained their tickets to Omaha for $23.75
each. The rate charged by the pool in
tho Garden is $2G, a saving to
the immigrants of 82.25. This
obtaining of tickets by runners or agencies
not within the pool is objected to by tho
Commissioners. Tho runner, of course, re
ceives a commission from the compnny, but
notwithstanding that in many cases it is a
doclded saving to tho immigrants tho Com
missioners deem it a pernicious practice.
All tho power of thoir machine-aided Agent
Doano, ib brought to bear to make an ex
amplo of any one daring to purchase a ticket
for an immigrant onywhero but at Castle
Garden.
"When tho two Arabs returned to tho
Garden, preparatory to going West, an old
missionary in the Garden, who makes a prac
tice of booking all the Arabians who come to
this country, got them to complain to tho
Commissioners about the runner of the Ruth
booking them on " outside " agencies. Ho
also alleged that the runner represented that
ho was from a hotel with which he had no
connection. Tho Arabs had no complaint to
make about their treatment. Thoy wero not
ill-treated or defrauded out of any money,
but wore treated in a kind and humane
manner.
On this complaint tho runner was banished
from the Garden, for booking passengers on
outside agencies. The Commissioners wero
not contented with this punishment, but
took away the boarding-house license -from
Mrs. Gasscr, for on act of indiscretion on the
part of hor representative, for which, proba.
bly, sho was not accountable. Binco then
tho woman has tried to havo her privileges
restored, but tho vindictive Commissioners
remained obstinate and refused to listen to
her appeal.
At last, seeing that no redress could bo
gained from the Commissioners, she to-day
appealed to an Etenino World reporter to
givo ventilation to tbo manner in which Bho
is being persecuted, which sho considers is a
gross outrage.
"For over thirty-five years," she said,
" tho Hotel Ruth has been doing business in
Castle Garden. My father, who is now dead,
formerly was the proprietor. Ho always en.
dcavored to act Justly with all immigrants who
came to our houso, and it is my aim to follow
In his footsteps. We havo never been ac
cused of acting unjustly to any person, nnd I
do not think the Commissioners of Emigra
tion ever recoived a word of complaint from
any immigrant, who has como to our houBO.
Hince our expulsion my business has fallen
away to almost nothing, and unless tho Com
missioners relent i am at a loss to know what
I shall do. I desire no sympathy, but only
that my caso be treated in a fair and impatial
manner."
Armed with the poor woman's story of her
treatment, Tnc Evbhxnq Would reporter
called upon Commissioner Hauselt, whoso
sympathies aro always with tho poor and op.
pressed, and asked him why tho woman's
license was taken away. Ho said: "Some of
tho Commissioners deem it a crime for a
rnnnor of a boarding-houso to book immi
grants on agencies outside of Castlo Garden.
This man has been aocusod of this, and in
consequence has been denied admission
to the Gordon. This is, as far as
I know the only complaint made against tho
man. Tho houso which he represents has
always beon a thoroughly reliable ono, and
immigrants going thero have always been
treated kindly and humanely. I havo not
suspendod the man, and sho will have to
1 submit her case to tho Commissioners beforo
anything can bo done in the matter. This
will all roquire some time.
Officer Edward Sullivan, of tho Mayor's
I Marshal Ofllco, whose duty it is to inspect
1 and look efter the licenses of the boarding
house keepers, was also seen by an Evbnino
Would roportor, He said; "I know Mrs.
GasBer and can vouch for tho fact that sho is
a thoroughly reliable and honest business
woman. No complaints have over been made
to mo about hor houso.

Trying- to Get Hold of the Itest of InolTrnslve
Peru.
The steamer City of Fuoblo, just in from
Panama, has landed a small army of South
nnd Central Americans in New York. Mr.
M. O'Dwyer, of Rio Cuarto, in tho Argentino
Republlo, comes from a country about which
tho average New Yorker knows little, but
in which, if ho ' only knew it, ho
has a deep interest. Large quantities
of fluid extract of beef are shipped hero
by Mr. O'Dwyer's neighbors on the pampas,
or great plains, which stretch towards tho
Cordilleras from tho wonderful city of Buenos
Ayres. Texans ship their beef frosh-killed,
and the South American cowboys and ranch
ers, who have Rio Ouarto for their headquar
ters, hope somo day to compete in that way
in tho metropolitan meat markets of the
world. But just now they can only export
the concentrated extract, hoofs, horns, hides
nnd tallow of the countless herds on their
great ranges.
Rio Cuarto is 200 miles from Buenos Ayres,
the capital and seaport. The peoplo thero
tako a lively interest in tho peril of thoir
neighbors, tho Peruvians, at the hands of the
Chilians. The think it natural for Peru's
cause to find friends in New York. Chili,
they say, is undoubtedly trying to absorb
Peru, having already gotten a big slioo off
hor southern territory and all of Bolivia's
coast-line. But the Argentine Republicans
don't think the rest of the civilized world is
going to acquicsco in Chili's grab-gamo.
