Ha explained that under the proposed

tax Is really an excise tax and is not
a property tax. whichi under the prssenl
constitution, must be assessed by local
authorities, lie though! the rule of se

Atlantic City is a "Home Town" for s;olfera all the year
around. Not any one season, but for spring, Rummer, autumn,
and winter. Muny of the conventions that meet here haee
their organizations. Some enthusiasts, last summer, when the
golf Trnymore wns n-buiWinK, had a driving contest into the
ocean from a scaffold on the Library Tower; the judges were
in a bout, off-shore. The regular golfers go either to the
Northfield t'ountry Club, known to thousands, or the Sea
view Golf Club which, with it unparalleled club house, has
now one of the most imposing equipments In America.
The mild bracing climuie of Atlantic City, the cuisine, com
forts, cheerfulness, of the Traymore, and the lure of the fair
greens, nre three forces to attract the tired man who wants
to renew his strength with Nature's tonics.

Issusd statements expressing their sym
pathy with a plan to push the prosecu
tion of all cases of commercial fraud.
The statements were given to the Credit
Men's Association. 110 Proadway, which
asked the candidates what encourage
ment might be expected for Ihe associa
tion's campaign against commercial dis
honesty. To the committee of the association
which called at the District Attorneys
office Mr Perkins said that commercial
fraud was u class of crime to which the
District Attorney's office would have to
give serious, constructive thought, and
added that he would he glad to cooperate
with whatever associations had Inter
ested themselves It, that work. If elected,
he said, he would do ever-. thing In hla
power to help lessen the offences from
which business In Now York suffers.
"I am In general sympathy with your

to relieve the situation of which you

wrote, "I shall establish a commercial
frauds bureau which will deal excuslvely
with business transactions that have a
criminal aspect to them. There is need
in the business world to clarify tha com

"It would seem as if the merchants of
this city," said Julian A. Orsgory, coun

about to receive from the District At

wrich will save them hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars a year.'
