After Hofmvell Itogers had been elected fnastdent of the association one might tiavo supposed that Victor r. I.awton, his boss, would have been eased down Into a loquacious humor about politic?, or white paper, or business, or some tiling or other. Coins After Lavs-Ma. So the reporters prepared to Interview Mr. Lawson by hiring a couple of taxi cabs and as many detectives to aid them hi tho pursuit and by laying In a supply of pcrsuaslvo clyars, easy talk and other things of value when such obstinate per sonages an newspaper proprietors and Col. Home are about to be approached. They say that Mr. Lawgoti Is a Dane by birth. One of the reporters tried to confirm this report at headquarters, but that Is nether here nor there. The fact f the matter Is Mr. Iiwnon ban been reading Interview s printed In his own paper for t-u many years that one must conclude he has learned the errors of Indulging lilmse'.f In that form of amuse ment. H would appear after three days of the A. N. I. A. that most newspaper owners hac learned the same lesson. Anyway, the story runs In this way. Ar. a strapping young fellow I.awson went down to Chicago from Canada, where lie had nut found things to his liking, and pounced upon the Chicago Xcic. At that time the .Veics was more ml a burden than a pleasure to its owner ml he was glad Mr. Uiwson enmo to town. The plant was bought for it song, wltli something knocked off for bad will, and Mr. Iason proceeded to make It what It Is generally supposed to be to day the bist paving newspaper plant in tho country They say it produces $1,000,000 a year, hut maybe It's U',000, 00. Take It all In all the convention con cluded yesterday was generally regarded as the most succewful In the history of the association, which is now Just in Its rrlmc at thirty jeare. Yesterday, before the election of oflleern. there waa some pretty serious discussion nbout adver tising, particularly the kinds of adver tising that are generally regarded as objectionable. The professional press agent, who 1b always looking for homethlng for noth ing, came In for some hard raps. It was aid by ono of the publishers who has been actlvo In suppressing press agents that their number has fallen off greatly In the last year Tho trading stamp business has never found favor with newspaper publishers and jestcrday a resolution adopted last year condemning trading (damps was reafllrmed. One of the speakers on this ubject said that $."0,000,000 a year was epent by mercantile firms for trndinr lamp privileges, J To said that most of thin was r.iid imalli't the better judg ment of tho ttuns and merely as a neces aary evil. Up In Toronto the newspapers have banded together In a succexsftil effort to atop the fieo publication of notices of meetings nn-I various other happenings, which because of their nirrow range of Intercut should fall Into tin- cusm of p.ild advertisements.

Ono reason that Brovvne'a Chop House hasn't seen KUdlo at 6 V.

Yearly llddlo writes and heads a Wall street Shakespearian show, but the one held yesterday was especially notable, Inasmuch as It confirmed the rumor around The Street that that Shake speare wna some guy whose death ought to be celebrated. And as these annual events have to be pulled off between the Stock Kxchange closing hour of 3 I.

Never mind how Tun Sc.N nlone heard about the doings.
