HE kind of irrigating tunnels
D which are becoming popular
near Fifth avenue are not
r iii like those in the West
where water is poured on
the ground to make the trees
and crops grow The Fifth
avenue irrigation is to get
I around the Excise law and
I L 3 to provide a convenient sup
ply of alcoholized cherries
t t highballs and other taxable
v beverages
r The first of these irriga
t I k tion conduits to be com
pleted runs from the Repub
lican State Committee to
I the Republican Clubthat
a sw is from No 43 West Thirty
ninth street due north to
CI I Bryant Square
W However often he may
il II vote against whiskey and
beer in the Legislature the
rural Assemblyman or Sen
ator when he comes to New York does not put his restrictive principles
to personal practice
There are only two Democratic rural Assemblymen or Senators
and since Democratic headquarters have been in the Hoffman House for
a long time they do not have to go outside the door to quench their
thirst Neither did the Republican rural statesmen so long as the Fifth
Avenue Hotel was Republican headquarters
It would not do for the Republican party to go officially into the
liquor business so the headquarters to which the first removal was made
No 10 Fast Thirtieth street were almost deserted This new removal
J makes the Republican State Committees back door abut on the Repub
lican Clubs back door and the building of a connecting tunnel his in
creased the headquarters attendance and strengthened the rural Senators
and Assemblymens tendency to hypocrisy
The other irrigating tunnel is to run from the Hotel Gotham to the
nearest place with a liquor license The Hotel Gotham could not get a
license because it was within 200 feet of a church This is to be over
come by running a tunnel to one of the nearby license holders
The same excise law which will not allow the Hotel Gotham to sell
liquor not only permits but created thousands of Raines law hotels whose
vicious results are worse than alcohoL

How the Republican legislative rulers do like to indulge in hy
pocrisy On the floors of the Senate and Assembly they vociferously
denounce the liquor traffic and refuse to let New York have even a law
ful Sunday glass of beer In the interior cities which they control like
Syracuse and Albany the violation of the Sunday law is one of the per
quisites of the Republican local machine and liquor gambling and vice I
are made productive of votes at the primaries and at the polls
Two Republican Governors in succession have vetoed the bills to
permit the Hotel Gotham to take out a liquor license They would like
ly have likewise vetoed a bill to allow the sale of beer on Sunday
Yet throughout the State the Sunday liquor law is violated openly
and fragrantly and the same constituencies which approve the persecu
tion of New York would be prompt to resent the enforcement of the
same laws among themselves
There is too much hypocrisy in politics A moving picture machine
set up in the irrigating tunnel to the Republican State Committee could
furnish films which would be excellent campaign documents I

Wives Take Warning I Dont Drive Your Husbands to Metaphors I
Read the Desperate Case of Poor Mr Jenkins of East Malaria
By Roy L McCardell I
I 1R JARR bad hardly ar
M1 rived at the olflce when
l hi friend Mr Rangle
rime In hurriedly In i state of
extreme agitation
Serious business tbls old
man he blurted out Poor
w Jenkins Whod thought It of
r r i b him Well you never can tent
ae is >
Here Mr Bangle sniffed and by
a brave effort kept back the
soar a tears for his was a sympathetic I
Whats the matter with you
whata the matter with Jen
YLrDIaCtaprJJ klnr asked Mr Jtrri i see
hes late this mornIng he added looking around
but then hes a commuter and his train Is always
delayed That all
Thats all eh snorted Mr Rangle Well you
read this And he flashed the following telegram on
Mr Jarr
Dear Rangle All II over the end has come
corpse when next you see have left wife will
destroy self gaping hole In side advise offlc
tell Jarr remains at St Croe us lintel
Pooh said Mr Jarr Plans drunk and raving
Was It sent collect
No Mid Range Its paid and dont I1t there
like that as It unconcerned We little know the sor
rows that crush our brothers down Poor fellow
Will destroy self gaping hole In tide he said Even
I now he It lying weltering In hU gore Have lelt
wll he 187eome domestic trouble I auppose
Some domestic trouble you suppose repeated Mr
Jarr How the dickens could a man leave his wife
without having some domestic trouble you suppose
Darn itl they will keep at a man till they drive him
to madness and he does something rash and then
they are In < JOMoIAJbIetll they marry again and re
peat the performance on another poor devil
By this It may be gleaned that all wu not peace In
the Jarr household at the time being
While we are gassing here he may be croaking
said Ur Rangle dropping Into the vernacular In his
agtttlon 1 thought you were a friend of hIs being
an omce mate Left his wife Why I always
thought they got along fine together
Ehrybody thinks other married people get along
fins together said Jr Jarr Well this Isnt sav
ing hit life lIe must have been desperate If he went
to the St Croe ui to commit the rash act Its such
an expensive place
Die game and expensive Thats my motto too
aid Mr Rangle Well lets tell the boss
Go slow now go slow sad Mr Jarr Ill say
JanWns wont be here today that hes sick and
well call up the SI Croesuj on the telephone and
learn the sad facts
They called up the hotel and had no difficulty what
ever In getting connected with the desperate Jenkins
Yes Ive left my wife raid the voice of Jenkins
feebly 1 couldnt stand It any longer I was good
to her you know that I tried everything I could to
I lease her but what was the use But Ive written
her a letter and left her everything Shell have he
house and the money she hat In bank and her Jew
elry and the furniture I give her everything Its aU
In hr name anyway
Hut how about that gaping hole In your side
asked Mr Jarr
Its a metaphor replied Jenkins
What did he say asked the agitated Kangte
He says the wound In his side is a metaphor
said Jarr aside
Good gracious I As bad as that said Rangle
who will doubtless make a most successful business
man since he knows nothing Good gracious then
all is Dved
Oh I dont know said Jarr calmly Lets take
the subway uptown
i Reaching the prostrate Jenkinss bedside Mr Jarr
i pulled him out and said When did you mall that
letter to your wife
Just a while ago Mid Jenkins
Well you take care you beat the U S mall to
I East Malaria said Jarr Now gill
Two hours later a telegram came to Jail
Met the postman at the gate Wife not wise to
It and all Is lovely
But Mr Jarr and Mr Rangle dd not get the news
till next day They were visiting divers place until
a lute hour wondering how a sensible fellow like
Jenkins could do such a silly thing i
However when reproaches were heaped upon them i
at their respective homes they hlntd darkly of des
perate de ds by men who could stand no more nd
Rnnsle told his wife of one case he knew of where
the ilctm of conjugal abu e stahbed himself with a
metaphor And yon know he added olemnly
I thats a fare yrm well there aint no comebacks
with them metaphors

The Woman of Our Day
By Elizabeth Bisland
ITH nil the calumny and scorn that men hate heaped upon woman
I I they have yet kept her an Ideal They have treated her much as the
I Italian fisherman does the Image of his patron saint he umacki It
when In a temper but worships It and looks up to It as something
better than himself all the while Now an Ideal even when treated
pretty roughly Is a potent thing writes Elizabeth Bisland In the North Ameri
can Review It assimilates the holder of It to Itself as the green leaf turns a
chameleon to Its own tint and all that we do and are of the best results from
our compact with our value of that Immediate Jewel of our souls It Is said that I
the capacity for growth and development In a race may always be tested ac
curately by the races attitude to Its women If Its Ideal of women Is low and I
gross Its general progress la also low and gross And this Is equally true of I
the Individual No one ever knew a really admirable man who thought badly ol
women and the nature of a woman Is suspect who thinks meanly of her own
sex The terrible welter of European savagery In the Middle Ages got its great
est Impetus forward through the development of the dreams of chivalry And IJ
It the real women were at all as the poets and painters and storytellen thought t
of them one doesnt wonder They were the dearest creatures
