President Heartily Commends the
Movement for Them.
TVashln>rtoTi. Feb. JO.— President Roosevelt in a
j«trer addressed to C^ne 31. Rudolph, president
c . tne Washington Playgroun Association,
strongly commends the renewed Intel in play
end r:a: - .r.dp throughout the country. He ad
vocates municipal provision for playgrounds "for
every child as much as schools." these to be within
easy tralking distance of every boy and girl, and
properly eupervlsed by the cities. He urges cities
to eecure ihe available grounds at once. in order
to avoid the necessity of later demolishing blocks of
bui'.u'.iies to obtain such space, and he particularly
con:men3s the plan of playground development In
this city as tending toward making the nation's
ci.pltal a model city. The President's letter fol
I have noted with pleasure the pood work which
your association has <lcne in promoting play
grour.ds for the national capital. 1 am especially
j,:ȣsed with the prospect of Congress granting this
jear an apjiro^nation for the purchase of play
ground sites. I trust that the bill of Representa
tive BonteU ■■■- through, so that you may
be able to secure pltes in The various quarters of
the-c'.ty now Ti-hlla open spaces still exist, and be
fore Ihe price upon them becomes prohibitive. The
rlan of playground development for the District
];as been so can fully drawn that I hope it may be
carried out substantially ns outlined. 1 regard
tills as one of tho most important f;p;i3 toward
ir..ik!r.f; Washington tiie mode! city which we all
le"! that the capita! of ihis nation should be.
I have hern pleased jo see also that there is a new
interest iii play and playgrounds all over the coun
try, ar.d that many, cities that have not previously
taken up the movement in a systematic way have
mad' 1 a beginning this year. The annual meeting Of
the Playground Association of America in Chicago
In June, with its attractive piny festival and com
j<rehi ri.'ivt ptudy of play problems, is sure to in
cresFe this ir.'.erest. ] trust tha: all of our larger
municipalities will F^nd representatives to this cx
hifcltioii to j Inspiration from this meeting and
to see the magnificent system that Chicago hns
creoted in its South Park section — one of - ♦ most
notable civic achievements of any American city.
Tfcr new appreciation of the value of play in the
development of children is shown in many ways.
The physical trainers In all of their recent, meetings
have rut a new emphasl* on the importance of
play, and are j-ivins a larger place to it in thfiir
wltK. The Public School Athletic League <>f New
York has organized athletics along- xi.ne and help
ful lines for thousands cf school child! en, and a
number or other ties fe*>m to be nt>out to take
up this movement. There is a genera] fe-^tns in our
f ch^o'p and cqllepes also for larger athWic flo'.da
ers'l the partieiyintion cf a larger proportion of the
Btudents in athletic events In Germany a larte
number of pames have been put into the school
courre as a part of tho school system, thus extend
ing the method of the kindergarten through the
elementary school. In England football and cricket
have been a part of the school course at Eton,
Rugby and most of the other public nnd prepara
tory Fr-hof.ls for many yf»ars. In the private schools
of this country, pimllar to these English schools.
such as Lawrenceville. Groton^ St. Paul's and many
others, play i? al«o provided for In the curriculum.
: hope that soon all of our public pchoola will
provide. In connection with the school buildings

Play is et pres.-nt almost the only method of

If we are to re*juir<» the pprents to rf-Tr the chil

possible. If w?--wouki hqve our citizens contented

City street* ere unsatisfactory playgrounds for
children, because of the d'.ncer. because most pood
paneF nre ;ig:ainsT the law, bpcausp they are too
hot in summer, and because in crowded sections of
the city they are cpt to be schools of crime..
Keither do small hnr-k yards or ornamental grass
plots meet th* ne^ds of any but the very small
children. Old^r children who would play vigorous
fames must have places especially set aside fur

ground* should 'in? provided for every child ns

distributed over the riti^s in puch a way as to be

most children cannot afford to pay carfare. In

Not Much, but Sufficient to Relieve
Business Strain.
Talk'ng over the genera! business situation,
James J. Hill. president ot the Great Northern
Railroad, while In the finir.clal district yesterday,
"A greneral recession hr.r set In. It Is not much
at preterit, but ii ought to be sufficient to relieve
the strain. Th railroads are curtailing expenses
generally. Thi3 one rhas''- of the situation wit] bo
a big help.
"I expect no tsiness recession in tho Northwest,
however. The Great Northern does not deal In
cummer resorts and luxuries. We haul grain.
lumber and ore, which rue necessities. Our fcusi
r.ess should bo the last to drop off."
President 1I"1 said that tho Great Northern had
nothing to fear fj'bm the ••" that was being rolsed
against overcapitalization of railroads. "Ouis It
one of ths lowe3t cacltalirod roads In the country,
tis every one knows." he FBid.
As ■' traffic conditions on Ills road, President Hill
Fald they ha<3 had four or I re weeks of the vorst
weather he had ever seen, but that traffic was
now movir.gr freely.
"There Is a h\s volume of business being of
fered," he said. "It Is well above what It wns a
year ago, nnd Is all we can handle. We shall be
in good shape for tho t.prlng's work. Between
now and July we shall receive a hundred and fifty
new engines."
President Hill cald ho had every reason to expect
a decision favorable to his road in the case- of
the C3reat Northern Ftock issue now pending in the
Minnesota courts, and intlmaXs-d that an advrr39
decision would not In any way hamper his road.
Regarding the Inadequacy cf the country rail
road equipment to handle the large volume of busi
ness now Ing offered. I'resldent Hill Raid:
"Some of the producers of the country mutt
suffer. If we get bumper crops cgrain they win
suffer Btlll more. The'.r products cannot be moved.
There 1? ;>ler.ty cf corn In Kansas which i!u> people
In the East -.vould ll^e to have. Tho ralroad man
finds that when he hauls It his cars will be tied
up three months. Chicago asks seven duys in
which to reeonsipn freight.
"It !s purely an illusion to think It would do any
pood to p"o! all the cars. It is more than a la^k
or cars. We must have more terminals In which
to move cars and more tracks over which to
move thorn. Tho railroad fn.-llitlpp of tills coun
try have been paralyzed by tlip urowth of business,
frlgures show n. find they cannot be refuted."
Lecturer Says It Was a Quotation from
Shakespeare's "Henry VIII."
That the works of William Shakespeare are one
nf the preafst rellclous forces of the time, and
that his plays owe their Immortality largely to
their religious teachings, was one of the chief con
tentions of Frederick Ward.-", tho. Shakespearian
student, in his lecture last night, under the au
spices nf the Stratford Shakespeare Society, at
Historical Hall, Clinto.-i and Flerrepont streets,
Brooklyn". The lecture was ... of a course of
fix Lenten "lecture recitals'" which bo will deliver

Hudson River Front Between 114 th
and 116 th Streets Chosen.
At a meeting of the Robert Fulton Monument
Association yesterday at the "Waldorf, President
Cornelius Vanderbllt presiding, upon the recom
mendation of the sub-committee on site, resolutions
\ were adopted approving as the site of the proposed
I monument to Robert Fulton the Hudson River
front, between 114 th and 116 th streets, and request
1 ire, such legislation as will enable the erection of
the monument on that site.

of the Municipal Art Society: Isaac Guggenheim
end J. Alden Weir.
Since the meeting of January 10, -when the sub
committee on site was appointed, the members of
that committee and of the committee on design
agreed at a meeting on February 7 that the site
should be nno facing the Hudson River. They
were also Influenced by the fact that there is now
no appropriate, dignified and monumental landing
place for the city of New York, and that this
Beemed an opportunity to co-operate with the Ftate
and the city authorities to remedy this evident
municipal defect. The plan is to erect, in connec
tion with the monument, a water or sf-a gato and
basin for boat landing for public use, to bo known
as the Robert Fulton wjuer gate, at which distin
guished visitors from foreign nations, arriving on
warships or other vessels, may be suitably re

Fall River Man Delighted with Winnings,
Goes Home for More.
Morton Woodman. <>f Fall River. Mass.. ap
peared at the East '2'2>\ street police station yes
terday afternoon ami told Captain McDermott
that he had been swindled out of his life's sav
ings, amounting to |6,500, In a bouse In East
2tith street, opposite the • •Th Regiment armory,
where he had been led to play the races by
men who had told him they had tapped the
wires leading to a poolroom and could obtain
information In advance. Plrected by Wood
man, tho police raided the house and captured
five men. ' It;icinjr charts, racing sheets, a tele
phone and a large quantity of counterfeit
money, the police say. were found In the rooms
and confiscated.
Woodman, In his story to the police, said that
he came to New York last Thursday with a
view t<> talking over plans for inve9tlng his
savings with a broker.
On Friday night, he said, he became aoqualnt
od with a man in a Broadway cigar store, who.
after he had learned Woodman object In com
ing to the city, told him he could make large
amounts of money i,v betting on the races after
obtaining advance Information from tapped
poolroom wires. He made an appointment with
him for the following day, Woodman alleges,
which ho kept, and was then led to the East
lit.th Btreet house, where he won two bets.
Becoming elated at hla success, he said, he
went back to Fall River with one of the men
he had met at the house, drew out all his money,
and on hi.-* return to the East "Jttth street house
put it all up. By late afternoon his dream was
shattered. He was penniless, he said, nd his
companions were extending him their sympathy.
One of the prisoners, who gave his name as
Marcus Frank, was charged with grand larceny,
and the others with conspiracy. They were all
taken to Police Headquarters.

Albany, Feb. 20. — Assemblyman "Walnwright, of
Westchester County, Introduced to-day a Pure
Pood bill exactly the same as the federal m—
ure. It has received the approval of Health
Commissioner Porter. Mr. Walnwright said that
the wording of the federal statute itself had
been taken largely from the New York State
laws, but that to make tin* two agree exactly the
state laws needed amendment in some places.
He presented, also, a bill prohibiting the pro
miscuous sale of cocaine.

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of ths Fidel
ity asd Casually Com pan held February 20th, the fal
lowing minute en the death of Mr. Areliua B. Hull
was adopted:
During- the thirty years, annci. of the activities cf
•-Ms corporation there have been few changes in tta
board excepting those made necessary by death. Sir.
Hull was a member of the first board choaeg. and
served In that capacity continuously until his ea4
cam». Kb was regular In attendance and painstaking
In the discharge of duty, doing, as a rule, far more
than an even sham of work.
But !t Is impossible for those who -.-• left •-> consider
the memory of Mr. Hull from the standpoint only of
business relationship. Frequent and regular attention
to affairs of mutual Interest over a lonsr series of -ears
cannot but lead to intimato a<-fjualntanc*> ard eJTec
tion between those con.-erned. Business m»«!rx» un
der such circumstances afford opportunities for inter
course which are cherished mow and mora as the
years pans.
It is with much feellnr. therefore, that the -«mbera
of the board record their appreciation of Mr. Hull's
Qualities and their sense of loss In his smth.
There can be no disposition aver to say other than
Rood things about the dead. There Is no memory In
his casa of aught that any on* eoold siy in disparage
ment. He was true In all relationships. Re was con
sistent throughout. His judgments were sound. H»
-a» successful. He was kindly and helpful. He was
full of good works. Few men have lived a. more fully
rounded and attractive life.
I>t-aih has claimed In the rlppTi»99 of time what *w
mortal, bnl precious memories remain.
May he rest In '•are.
