TRACTION TAXDODGING
r
= The Worlds disclosures of the Indebtedness to the
elty of the traction companies make a most remarkable
I bowing In taxdodging In unpaid taxes on personal
property the delinquent corporations owe 92000000
en real estate an amount approximating 3000000
SBd In special taxes and license fees the great sum ol
113183805 Altogether the amount In arrears reaches
the colossal total of nearly 10000000
1 In this total the item of 9000000 la due under Uu
pedal franchise tax Payment of this tax has beet
r refused pending the review by the United States Su
mo Court of the decision of the Court of Appeals sus
taining the constitutionality of the law In view of the
I fact that unanimous decision of the State Court has
r never been reversed by the Federal Court the postpone
1 Jxnent of payment Is In the nature of an obstructive
> expedient
1 By the passage of the Franchise Tax law for the
first time in rita history thO city was given power to
dfact o fair return from the streetcar companies and
t other public service corporations for the valuable rights
and privileges it has bartered away
1 With the bill grown to its present enormous propor
ttona it Is high time to take measures to compel payment

i r MOVING DAYS APPROACH
i The house = hunter this fell Is offered a larger supply
n fat apartments to chooso from than ever before But
Nr he discovers no reduction of rentals to correspond
Indeed ho finds some of the accustomed concessions
withdrawn and tM > month off not so frequently
granted as before The prospective tenant learns some
what to his surprise that the demand also has Increased
r with tho supply
In some cases he Is confronted by an Increase of
rents where their height seemed already excessive This
is noticeable particularly In apartment hotels where
py accommodations are now offered on a general basis of
from 300 to 3400 a year per room Two rooms and
bath for 750 a comparatively moderate figure as rents
I mow go means a rent of nearly A dollar n year per
aosire foot Not many years have pasted since the
Yt
ground on which the tall building stands was for sale
at that price
Tho hope Is indulged by tenants of moderate means
that the near future will bring an era of cheap tpart
mont hotels of high class It Is a fond hopo that de
cays with every October moving day Yet unquestion
ably there Is money In cheap houses of good character
c simply built and architecturally pleasing but lacking
r tho overornate finish which to somo tenants Is objec
tionable
Erected on side streets adjacent to desirable residence
sections and economically managed they ought to as
sure their owners a handsome return on tho Investment
tl v And Incidentally they would solve the problem of living
for those who under present conditions fall between the
two extremes of tho undesirable boardinghouse and the
choice but expensive apartment hotel
II HOLY MATRIMONY I
i Do you call that hula matrimony naked a lawyer
iii Magistrate Cranes Court There Is very little of
that nowadays said the Magistrate
A case within tho Magistrates meaning has attained
Borne publicity In Chicago A man ot many physical
attractions once petted by society and not yet old
having died In an asylum there the duty devolved on
h s three widows of burying him To discharge this
obligation conjointly might It must be admitted have
produced a comicopera situation at the side of an open
grave Three weeping women In woods attending to the
if obsequies of the dear departed whom they had each soy
T orally sworn to love cherish and presumably obey
until death should them part And all three with di
vorce court decrees safe In their keeping at homel It
Mv
was Gllbertlan and not to be risked So tho performance
V of the pious duty was delegated to widow No1
It Is tho marriage partnership of this sort that lends
point to the Magistrates criticism tho limited partner
ship terminable at tho pleasure of husband or wife be
fore a complaisant Justice Each of these wives had
J secured her decree within a year or eo of the marriage
A few months of honeymoon a few days of pouting
i quarrel Incompatibility of temper and Judicial sanc
T tion to try It again It Is a mockery of marrlnge

TO WHAT BASE USES I
We were led to believe from the laboratory experi
ment of a Newark physician last month that tho Xray
1 would prove uniformly fatal to mosquitoes Corral tho
pernicious insects In a room turn the deadly ray upon
S
9 them and await results serene in your confidence of soon
4 seeing the floor strewn with their corpses That was the
promise given but In Sundays papers came word from
I another man ot science declaring that the pests act under
tho ray aa If stimulated by a tonic As they fattened on
I kerosene they grow strong on the Roentgen ray
But yesterday assuagement for our disappointment
crime from Dr K D Hawley of Columbus Ind Tho
h + ° X ray will turn white hair black again

t

ROT L MCARDELL
TWO MElfBERS OF THE CLUD
1IAT can we do to arouse the mar
W ried men of America frim their
present condition of apathy and
despair Almost every letter he receIves
breathe such a spirit of heleesmes
that Uncle Pennutbrlttle has MaCf a
mind to abandon hU efforts to free
mankind and go Into the underiakna
butlncea and there bury any hopes he
might have a emancipating mankind
The letters we receive are anonymous
or If the writers give their names they
beg it be not printed
It looks as If our Emancipation Day
parade must be called off its married
men are afraid to lot their wives see
them In line roaring reprisals
Eight or ten cases of husbandbeating i
have been brought to our attention but
husbands who are vlcltms of wifely
wrath fear to prosecute len they be
persecuted
The treasury of iho Nose and Grind
stone Club Is depleted because members
are not permitted to have any money
their wives taking It all and hence can
not pay their dues
A powerful opposition has developed In I
the shape of all womens clubs the Tidy I
Workers of America the Lady Boiler
makers and tho Brooklyn Rubber Plant
Association To days correspondence

Letter from the Don ntrodden
Uncle IeanulbrlUItt
You might as well give up the fight
The women alway et the best of us
1 have one gatljfaci however I

every day and I nm In a position to
know that the women ot America have

In their bands but In their stockings
Money la the modern power Riches In

Uncle Fcanuthrlttle
I wish to announce to the members of
the Noso and Grindstone Club an excel
lent method of selfprotection When
a member has pent more of his salary
than he can account for when he stays
out late talking over the days when he
was free he can escape violence at the
hands of his wife when he returns to
his domicile by Inking home with him
a tierce mouse As aoon as the angry
wife approaches a man with Intention
to do him violence let him be sure the
door Is closed and then liberate tho
mouse His wife will Immediately climb
on a chair and beg for morcy A man
saved for tho tlmo being can take ad
vantage of the presence of the rodent
In tho room and dictate terms before
he opens the door and shoos it out De
lure to get the cat out of the way be
fore trying this plan
SMART ALEX
Uncle PtanutbrlUU
I am a poor hackman and I have In
vented a combination hansom cab and
hook and ladder truck I can bring a
man home from lodge and turn the
crank until tho extension ladder Is at
hla upstairs window when he can
climb In undetected Can I get funds
from your club to assist In taking out
my patents and building a rig of this
kInd NIOHTBIAWK CARRY
We cannot see the utility of this pat
ent in the first place a man coming
home from lodge Is too overcome bj
excitement to climb a ladder and sec
ondly the tyrant wife la generally on
the watch at the upstairs window The
mouse proposition aubmltted by our
lint ccrrespondent strikes Ue ae bent
more practicable

Value of Borax Product j
I
Borax which largely used In the arts and for household it
purposes as well Is found in many parts ot theworld In a t
more or lees pure state Bays the Iron Age and the process l
of separating it from the crude mineral Is very simple A
first operation Is that of grinding the material In boiling 1
water containing a small portion of calcined carbonate of l
soda The clear solution thus obtained is run Into tonka and I
allowed to crystallize About one a Iror the crystals are i
borax the rest being sulphate of life and salt The crystals
thus obtained are then heated to certain temperature at
which the borax proper crystallizes tram the rest asp
aratlnglfrom the impurities held In suspension Borax Is now
found In such abundant quantities that It has greatly de
dined in price frorn former figures It once sold at 300 per
ton the value is now but a fraction of that
