Hotel men ' of New York. Connecticut,
Massachusetts and other states met in the
rooms of the New York City Hotel Men's
Association, at No. 534 Fifth avenue, yes

the new automobile law, which forbids
automobiles from other commonwealths

from Albany. The organization will also
try to secure the enactment of uniform
automobile laws for the entire country.
The hotei men say that the new law,
which went into effect yesterday, will se
riously hamper their business. Frederick
H. Elliott, chief of the Bureau of Automo
bile Licenses in the office, of the Secretary
of State. paid at the meeting yesterday
that Mr. Koenic had suspended active en
forcement of the law until September 9. so
that automobilists who did not know of
its existence might have opportunity to
get licenses or prepare to keep out of this
state with their machines. Mr. Elliott
spoke in favor of uniform automobile laws
for the country, but said that nothing
could be don«> with the present Congress.
The members of the new organization
have appointed a committee to confer with
Attorney General O'Malley. The Automo

not com* with his wife and her mother.
"I made a terrible mistake." the girl told
her sister yesterday, "and I want to live.
I want another chance to try hard to win

Old Regulation Providing for In
spection To Be Enforced.
Two Reports on Local Apprais
er's Stores — One Critical,
the Other Kindly.
President Taft and Mr. KacVeagh. Secre
tary of the Treasury, have received the re
port of the special commission that has been
examining into conditions at the Appraiser's
Stores; in fact, two report.-: wsre sent out
by the commission, and as the members
were equally divided, two and two neither
could br- called a majority report. And
they were very different, it was said last
evf-nlns. n n^ abounding with praise for all
things invpstigatrd. and the other critical,
pointing out alleped ahu?*« and suggesting
changes of a drastic character.
The commission began its work in April
of this year. It was composed of J C.
Cumroinp-s. head of tho Treasury Depart
ment, agents in this city; Leslie Cullom, of
the Secret Service, of Baltimore ; A. C
Armstrong, special Treasury agent, of Bos
ton, taken from the police force in that city
by Mr. Curtis. Assistant Secretary of the
Treasury, and ex-Judge Burton Parker, of
Detroit, who was called from El Paso, Tex.,
to take part in the work here after the com
mission bad been in session several days.
Mr. Cummingrs. who was said yesterday
to be 111, and Mr Cullom sent In the rose
tinted report. Judge Parker and Mr. Arm
strong sent the report on which, it was said,
Secretary MacVeagh would base his action
in the near future.
One of the thinps the Parker- Armstrong
report dwelt on was the necessity for the
transfer of several important officials, the
advancement of others and a substantial
increase in the pay of examiners, on whose
work the government must depend for hon
est results.
It has been determined to have investiga
tions throughout the country once a year,
as the customs regulations of 1592 re
quired. They were in force until about four
years ago, when James Burton Reynolds,
then Assistant Secretary of the Treasury,
disr-ontfnued the practice.
In every customs pcrrt Treasury agents
used to make the investigations, and the
result was said to he very beneficial to the
Secretary BfacVeagti "rri^red the forma
tion of the commission soon after the dis
closures made at this p^rt in the sugar,
cheese, fig and oth<=r weighing frauds and
the irr^guaritk-s in the valuation of goods.
Irregularities that, it was felt, were in all
probability due to lack of care and lack of
In looking for authority to order a drastic
Inquiry the Secretary was surprised to learn
that there was a regulation providing for
examinations. The regulation follows :
For the purpose of ascertaining whether
the customs business is properly transact
ed and the public moneys are duly collect
ed and accounted for, the books, papers
and accounts of the Collector and other
customs officer within each agency district
will be carefully and thoroughly examined
by the special agent in charge. In conjunc
tion with agents to be especially detailed
for that purpose, at least once a year and
as soon as possible after the close of each
fiscal year.
Hr.c of th° results of the inv<==ticq ti<">n
entirely apart from its intention was the
disclosure of the undervaluation of Panama
hats, followed by the seizure of many
thousands of dollars' worth and the segrega
tion of upward of one million dollars'
worth. Other cases of undervaluation were
discovered, and these, have been placed In
the hands of the proper officer? for further
The commission will be disbanded, but
Mr. Armstrong and Judge Parker may be
sent to other ports as part* of other com
missions whose work will be the same as
that in this port. It is a part of Secretary
MacVra^h's plan to cleanse the customs ser
vice of the whole country.
Forced to It, Says Borden's, but Other
Companies Make No Change.
Borden's Condensed Milk Company
raised the price of cream yesterday from
12 cents to 14 cents a half pint At the
office of the company yesterday it was
explained that the change was due to the
fact that the company had to pay a higher
price for milk and expected to continue,
doing so.
The manager of the Sheffield F"am->s-
Slawson-Decke- Company said his
pany would continue its prespn' s< hed
ule of price? and had no intention of
making any change in the price of cream,
even though the Borden Company had
done so.
At the offices of 'he Alexander Campbell
Milk Company, in Brooklyn, it was said
there had been no chane<" in the price of
milk and cream, and no one here knew of
such a thing being under consideration

Magistrate Is Angered by Testimony in
Cruelty to Animals Case.

who was charged with lashing his horse
with a four-foot whip equipped with a

Nevadusky pleaded guilty to th»* charge
and was sentenced to thirty days' impris

that there were seventeen welts on the. an

The Public Service. Commission yester
day denied an application made by the
Interborough Rapid Transit Company for
authority to extend its summer schedule
in the subway until October 1. The com
pany obtained exemption from th« order
of April 5, which required that so far as
was possible enough cars be run to pro
vide just as many seats as passengers, and
fixed the maximum headway during the
non-rush hours in the daytime at two and
one-half minutes. The exemption was
ftr.st ir.dile for thirty Lays from July ]_>,

Special Trains Carry Long Isl
anders Through Tunnels.
Special trains were run over the Long
Island Railroad yesterday from points
along the North Shore and the Rockaway
divisions for inspection of th* East River
tunnels and the Pennsylvania station in
Manhattan. This morning Long Islanders
from different sections east of Jamaica
will make the trip, and in Che afternoon
the Long Island City Business Men's- As
sociation will inspect the improvements.
About three hundred residents of the
towns on the North Shore division were
picked up by a steam train yesterday
morning and carried to Woodside. where
they transferred to an electric train and
continued their journey to Manhattan.
They found that they would have to
change trains at Woodside until the divis
ion had been electrified, and President
Peters of the Long Island Railroad said
that the work of electrification would not
be started until the grade crossings had
been eliminated. The North Shore men
estimated that this could not be done in
side of two years at least.
' Owing to the fact that the old Mon
tauk division between Long Island City
and Jamaica is to be used principally for
freight traffic and the new schedule does
not provide for tunnel trains residents of
the populous towns along that line will
be compelled to make the best of a limited
number of steam trains. Passengers on
other divisions will find certain shortcom
ings in the service for a time.'
It is understood that for the present
there will be practically no change in the
schedule of boats between Long Island
City and 34th street. Although the pas
senger traffic from the railroad station
will be shifted to the tunnels the num
ber of vehicles crossing the river, together
with the local passenger traffic, promises
to keep the ferry boats 'busy.
Notices posted in the railroad station
set forth that commutation tickets for
Manhatan would be good on both the Long
Island City and Atlantic divisions. Com
muters from Jamaica and Richmond Hill
may also select either route.
Flames in Downtown Broadway-
Building Cause Panic.
Those derelicts of humanity who inhabit
City Hal! Park after dark were making
ready to occupy their accustomed benches
early last evening, when the toots of fire
whistles were wafted through the mist laden
air, and they were startled to see the fire
engines stop just across the park on Broad
Hundreds of other?, too. wore attracted
by the commotion, and gathered in front of
the building at Xos. 241 and 243 Broadway,
from the basement of which flames were
shooting forth. The structure i ? six stories
high, and all the floors excepting the first
are occupied by the Underwood Typewriter
Company. The ground floor was rented two
w - ee k S a? r> by the Kauffmar. Hat Company.
Several girls who were working overtime
on the upper floors of the building smelled
smoke. Investigation showed that it came
from the elevator shaft, and then the usuil
screams rang out as the employes scui-ried
for the rear stairway When they reached
the street, bare headed and panic stricken,
the tire ensjinps were already on the scene.
A passerby had noticed the blaze and sent
in an alarm.
The fire started in the basement, in which
was stored a large collection of typewrit
ers and parts, and then spread to the first
floor and attacked the hat boxes piled be
hind th« counters A half hour's fight on
the part of the firemen extinguished the
flames. Th^ damage to the Underwood
company is estimated to be about $.=ion. The
water also 'H r l considerable damage in the
hat store.
A strange coincidence was that the Kauff
man store in 14th street was completely
burned out yesterday noon.
Remodelled Garments Must Pay
Duty on Added Values.
Collector Lo-?b mad.« answer yesterday to
a criticism in The American Economist"
of the Treasury Department ruling pro
viding for the assessment of duty only on
the cost of repairs or alterations which
have been made abroad on articles of
wearing apparel taken out. of this cruintry
and brought back as the bageage of re
turning citizens of *he United States
It was declared that the ruling was con
trary to all custom, was causing much
trouble to government official? and opened
wide the door for fraud The Collector
"This statement is absolutely incorrect
in several particulars Such gowns, if
taken abroad by fashionable dressmakers
and brought back after having been con
verted into latest Paris creations, would
be treated as merchandise upon arrival,
sent into the. Appraiser's Stores for ap
praisement and assessed for duty upon
their full value. They could not be in any
way regarded as coming within the depart
ment's ruling, which is restricted to wear
ing apparei and personal articles for the
use and wear of the passenger.
"On the other hand, garments taken
abroad by passengers and remodelled to
conform to the latest fashions and brought
back for their personal use would be as
gessed for duty upon the cost or value of
such remodelling only.
J'nder this ruling, therefore, customs
duties would be collected upon the ideas
expressed in such remodelling, for thft rea
son that they would enter into the cost or
value thereof. **
The Collector said also that it was con
tended by some persons that articles of
wearing apparel and other personal effects
taken out of the country by citizens and_
repairerl and remodelled while abroad
should continue to be free of duty. This,
he said, was not regarded as tenable under
the. presr-nt tariff act.

Swamped with Statistics, Com
mission Adjourns to Prepare
Chicago. Sept. I.— Testimony relative to
operating: cost and revenue of the Rock
Island Railway Company occupied the at
tention of the examiners to-day In the hear
ing of the freight rate dispute between the
railroads who seek an increased rate on
certain commodities and the shippers who
oppose the advance.
F. O. Melcher. vice-president of th» Rock
Island, occupied the stand throughout the
morning and several clashes between the
witnesses and counsel for the shippers oc
F. J. Norton, attorney for th« Santa I-©
Railroad, filed with the examiners a for
mal protest against what he termed "state
ments which have been sent out from
Washington as proceeding from the Inter
state Commerce Commission since the con
test over the tariffs began, which have been
uniformly miMeading, narrow and unfair
to the carriers "
The statement offered free access of the
commission or the shippers to all of the
books of the Santa Fe company to show
that the statistics were fair and accurate.
Mr. Lyon, of the commission, objected to
the statement as reflecting on the commis
sion, but it was admitted in the record of
the hearing by Examiner Brown.
Tabulations introduced by Frank • Nay
controller of the Rock Island, showed
comparisons of different years and the In
creases and decreases of operating reve
nue expenses, cost of maintenance of way
and other items, on which the carriers de
pond to demonstrate that the proposed in
creases of commodity rates should be per
mitted to so into effect.
One of the first exhibits introduced by
Controller Kay was a compilation of sta
tistics extending from I*9B to im showing
a total operating revenue in IS9S of $20,3*.,
620, in 1907 of $6*538.487 and in 1910 of $63,
The same tabulation showed the total op
erating expenses of the road aggregated in
IS9S. $12,636,255; in 1907. $38,566,000, and in 1310,
The net operating income was listed as
in ISBB. $6,691,000; in 1907. $13,029,310; in 1910.
Another group of figures read into the
record showed that the expenses for main
tenance of way and structures in 1907 was
$7,536.0<V»: in ISOS. 57.595.000; in 1909, $5,596,000,
and in 1910. $10,200,000.
The report of the road for the* month of
July. 1910, as compared with July. 19**. was
Introduced, the figures showing that in
July. 1910, there was a comparative de
crease over the business in July. I!V>9. of
5110.6:0 in freight revenues and an increase
of $281.4& iln operating expenses.
Gross earnings .of the road for three
■weeks In August this year, according to
Mr. Nay. decreased $245,272 compared
■with the corresponding period last year.
making a total comparative decrease In
freight earnings for the first seven weeks
of the present fiscal year of $355,000 in
round numbers.
A tabulation based on the present
freight rates and on the proposed rates
as applied to commodities hauled in 1910
disclosed, according to the figures pre
ppnted by the v.-itness. that the operating
revenue of the road would have been in
creased $142,663 had the proposed rates
been in effect.
Another group of statistics entered in
the evidence gave the net capitalization
of the Rook Island Railway company on

Lucky men who have grown
bigger this Summer!
The bigger sizes of the suits %
marked down to $15 and $20/
now offer the bigger chances.
