11 AMERICANS ARE OTENIR MAD How It Strikes the Inhab itants of Other Countries. HOTELS THE VICTIMS. Theft of Soup Tureen the LimitChicago Manager Employs, Detectives. As a Britisher temporarily resident in New York, I have often hesitated to write about America lest my stories be dismissed as grotesque yarns. I had long watched the "memento" craze; had talked v:'.ih harried White House Euardians, hard put to it to prevent well-dressed persons from cutting up the carpets of the executive mansion, knocking chips off the furniture, and removing bodily statuettes and such email fowl. But not until the duke of the Abruzzl gave ' information to the police did I pluck up courage to write of certain strange nights of the Bird of Freedom. It was, in truth, birds of prey that descended on the popular Italian prince's flagship Verese in the Ncrth river noisy, rowdy birds that, not content with knives and forks, spoons and salt cellars, snatched spare uniforms and cut the buttons and lace from them. The ship was looted, as Admiral Prince Louis of Battenberg's ship was looted, only the Duke of Abruzzl understood his guests less well, and "kicked." Hence his appeal to the police, who begged the enthusiasts to return all souvenirs, and "no questions would be asked." But this is merely by the way, and leading up to the impotent fury of the hotel and restaurant keepers. For the hotol men's association has just met in Washington, and its members gathered round the table remarked "that the carting off of a soup tureen was the limit." (And therewith each turned to his neighbor with Boss Tweed's classic query, "What are you going to do Ebout It?" A queer thing this turning of the hotel and restaurant men. I thought both looked upon the "souvenir" busi ness as with them forever. Certainly their prices should have insured them. "If I'm charged one and three for a two-penny portion of raspberry jam, said to be 'imported,' have I no right to collar the spoon?" The reasoning is that of a traveled Bostonian With whom I talked on the subject. Both he and thousands of other reputable citizens have a souvenir collection at home. So have their wives and sisters, mothers and brothers, fathers and daughters. And the children are in no wise behind. I have seen many such collections, neatly stored in cabinets a tag on ev ery wineglass and salt ''shake." I re member one of vast range in Dallas, Tex. It was the family's pride a regu lar magpie's nest of glittering things. Pepper casters from the opulent St. iRegis; fruit knives from the Waldorf; plated ash trays from the hew Belle-vue-Stratford at Philadelphia; big oup ladles from the Chicago Auditor ium. Aye, the , mementoes a-plenty from the St. Moritz Engadlner Kulm and the far-off Carlton, the Paris Bris tol, too, and the Brussels Flandres flower holders from Shepheard's in Cairo, a little salver from Bitter's in Homburg, and a "cute", little cream jug from Palm Beach. There were china ornaments, small bedroom clocks, and Jinen galore from hotel, restaurant, ocean liner and railroad train. , All this and much else. My hostess stood by to hear her collection admir ed. I said, lamely, the custom was lit tle known in England. "We are a dull people," I explained, "slow', unimagin ative; unnecessarily quarrelsome, per haps, where the removal of silverplate, glass, linen and crockery is concerned." But I was sharply reminded that the thing is rampant even at White House dinners. Was not the executive silver kept purposely poor in quality for sou venir reasons? Otherwise the richest president would surely go "broke." And such as remains is each year auctioned off and a fresh store laid in. "This is peculiar to Americans," re marked Admiral Robley D. Evans to mo, 'talking of the looting of the flag ship, as I walked his deck in Hampton iRoads, "The duke's' loss is attributable to collect souvenirs, Why," "Fighting Bob" went on. "I was walking down Broadway, New York, one summer's day when a flash of lightning struck a flagstaff near City Hall park, sending it in splinters into, the street. Where upon 'the scramble for memento scraps stopped the trolley cars for 10 minutes and nearly ended In a tragedy!" The hotel men's association have been eaying hard things. Indeed, the bolder spirits bluntly declare the souvenir bus iness "all rot," and give it the ugly name of "plain thieving." "Would they do it while a policeman was by?" ask ed one bitterly. Arid the rest chorused indignantly, "Well, I guess not!" IA special secret session was held by the hotol managers in Washington to con sider this question, but all they gave out was that the pilferings ran into hundreds of thousands of dollars ev ery year, from the resorts on the Maine coast of Pasadena, Cal., and from the great lakes down to Palm Beach. A big Chicago manager eagerly ask ed me whether the London and conti nental hotel people complained of trans atlantic guest-thieves, but I dexterous ly turned the question with sympathy and Interest. Encouraged, he "talked a blue streak" the expression is his. I gathered that provincials coming from the interior to the great cities of the East looked upon the seizure of minor hotol property as a matter of course. Yet no single hotel in a city, it seems, can carry out a plan for the total sup pression of the practice. "I had been losing thousands of dol lars' worth of my property every year," the Chicago manager said, "through thefts committed by guests. My house is both American and Euro pean, bo I tackled the diningroom and (European cafe problem first. I was be ing robbed of so much silverware epoons, knives and forks, cream jugs, sugar bowls, salt and pepper shakes, finger bowls, and even aa old soup tureen that it made me hot to read my stewards' daily report. So I put a couple of detectives on duty, dressed as assistant head waiters. Both had served in big department stores and possessed useful tuition. They know ex actly what silverware was on the tables when -the people sat down at them, and when the party left they made a light ning inventory. If anything was miss ing they would go quickly to the office to report, and then the guests would be held up at the cashier's desk and made to pay, and pay handsomely, for the missing articles. It would often happen that a woman would appropriate a 'souvenir' while dining with a male es cort, and the latter would know noth ing of it. And then, of course, when he came to be charged for the goods there would bo trouble. "It made me tired, the scenes that were put up on detection! The worst I remember was made by the wife of a rich Omaha man. She and her husband occupied a handsome four-room suite, and when he asked for his bill he was really staggered to find that a silver cream Jug, a sugar bowl and a finger bowl were charged up to him. My de tective had seen the lady taking these articles at three different meals. "That Omaha man made an awful row. 'Did I mean to say that he or his wife was a thief?' I told him my de tective had seen the articles removed. 'Well," said the angry man, 'If my wife took them I'm going to see. All our baggage is packed, but I'll wait over a few trains and search every piece!' Then he went up to .his rooms, took off his coat, and began. His wife grew hysterical as he went. on; threw herself on a sofa, wrung her hands, and moaned. It took him nearly an. hour to find the cream jug, the sugar bowl and finger bowl, away down at the bottom of one of her trunks, wrapped in one of the Turkish towels of my house. By that time his wife had worked hersefl into a serious state, so I had 4o send for a doctor, and the couple remained in the house four days longer. "Why, I have known guests to re mcve the nickeled towel racks from the bathrooms! They steal heavy. foot stools, and , even the flno glass- gas glebes from the chandeliers. The worst I ever knew was removing small paint ings from the walls of; the best suited Now I keep women detectives disguised as chambermaids. , ' "But the worst of .lt is, the rowstget Into the papers, and no hotel man can afford to send a whole parcel of 'knock ers' forth Into the world. I tell "you there was some plain talk about these thieves at the meeting here the .other day, and we shall hit upon some ef ficacious plan before long." New York Letter to the London Mail. THE AMERICAN JOCKEY'S SEAT. Injurious Effects on English Racing at a Style That Wins. The chief cause of bad starts is what is known as the swerving of horses. When the tapes fly up it Is a common thing (or horses to collide, and occa sionally it happens that one of the best horses fails utterly In the race through having received a staggering shock at the start. But do . horses swerve more than formerly? And if so, is it the use of the starting-gate which causes them to do so? There is no doubt that swerving has become much more common, and the support ers of the walking-up start believe that it might be greatly reduced at the be ginning of races by the method they recommend. At the standing start the horses have not, as It were, settled down to their course in relation to one another, and when the excitement of the start comes they plunge off madly to this or that side without respect for their neighbors. But the supreme cause of swerving, not only at the start but at every part of the race, is the modern style of jockeyship "the American seat." No other cause can be compared with this. It is difficult to see how this cause can be removed, or even modified in its operations, for certainly no owner or jockey has the least intention of reverting to the English style of a dozen years ago. When what is called the American or short seat was introduced here, the superficial explanation of its success was that it offered much less resist ance to the wind. It was noticed that the jockey sat on the withers of the horse instead of on the middle of its back, that his knees were drawn up, that he held his hands near the horse's mouth, and that his body lay almost flat along the horse's neck. He looked like a racing .bicyclist. The grace of the old jockeyship was gone. A mon-key-on-the-stlok grotesqueness had re placed It. Still, the new style succeed ed. It was universally adopted and then it was discovered that it depend ed on sound principles in the distribu tion of weight, which were far more important than the mere reduction of wind resistance. The driving power of a horse resides chiefly In his hind quarters, and this part should be left as unhampered as possible. The old position of the sad dle in the middle of the back reduced to a small but quite appreciable extent the power of this driving machinery. If you ride a horse bareback you soon And that you are not sitting on the middle of the back, but have slipped forward aginst the withers. It would not be fair to deduce from this that nature therefore intended that you should sit there, as we must not sup pose that nature therefore Intended that you should sit there, as we must not suppose that nature conceived a horse as created for the express pur pose of having a man on its back. But at all events this is the position in which a horse carries a man most easily. Long before the American In vasion Fordham and other English jockeys had half-guessed this truth. It may be said that in jumping or going down hill in the American style the strain on the fore legs of the horse is too great; but In flat racing these considerations can be Ignored, with a slight reservation, perhaps, in the case of the steep and forbidding Tattenham corner at Epsom. The .great disad vantage of the short seat is that the rider has much less control over the horse. He has hardly any purchase; he can "stick on"; but the horse be yond going in the direction required of it, can do pretty well what it likes. What would have been justly punished as foul riding some years ago has now tn he aec:eDted as an unharrav accident beyond the control of the jockey. Lon don Spectator. N DEMOCRATS WANT TARIFF REFORM People Weary of Increased Cost of Living Under Protection. RELIEF TO CONSUMER. Party Leaders Agree That Americans Should Be Emancipated. Boston, July 27. The Democratic j leaders of Massachusetts the Quincys jGastons, Hamlins and Whitneys are a unit in the declaration that tariff re vision is the issue upon which' the Na- tlonal party should go before the peo ple next year. Both the aspirants for nomination as Governor, Henry Whit ney and Charles W. Bartlett, agree that that issue overshadows all others, now that trust 'curbing and Govern ment ownership are for the time being eliminated. Indeed, it Is hard to find a simon-pure Democrat who does not hold this belief. Ex-Gov. Douglas is, as Is well known an ardent advocate of lighter tariff burdens, and the others named are am ply on record on this subject. Charles S. Hamlin said to a repre sentative of the New York Times: "The Republican leaders have appar ently determined upon another 'stand pat' campaign. Tariff revision is to be postponed. The tariff beneficiaries are to have their monopoly renewed and the American people are to be plunder ed for another term of years. But what answer will the people make to the policy thus announced? Will the Democratic Party rise to the opportun ity now presented to giving genuine re lief to the consumers of the United States? ; "The people are weary of the start ling Increase in the cost of living un der . the so-called protective policy. They realize that the word 'protection' has to-day a very different meaning from what it once had. Years ago it meant development ana growth, dom estic growth, to be sure, as opposed to foreign, but, nevertheless, growth. The 'home market' was once a term signi fying expansion. To-day, however, the cry of 'home market' signifies limitation and monopoly. Certain fav ored interests are intrenched under the ramparts of the Dingley tariff. They sell their products, not occasion ally, but as a regular course of busi ness, cheaper to foreigners than to their own people at home, so that an American citizen, to get the full bene fit of protection, should leave the country and settle abroad, where he could revel In the low prices afforded to foreigners by our protected inter ests. ' ! 'A year ago I made an investigation into comparative prices of American products when sold in this country and abroad, and I began with farm uten sils. The result was somewhat sur prising. I found that the same man ufacturer demanded $8.50 for a barrel churn to be used in Massachusetts, while for the same churn he was con tent to receive $7 from a Canadian farmer, who wrote him at my request the churn in both casps to be put on the cars free on board. 'Similarly, a double-wheel hoe was offered to the Canadian farmer at $8.75, while the protected Massachu-; setts farmer was charged $9.50. "A double-mold board plow was of fered to the Canadian at $6.30; of the Massachusetts farmer, however, $8.10 was demanded. "I might go on at length, but these illustrations are typical. 'This condition Is by no means con fined to manufactures used by farmers. It prevails throughout almost the en tire range of 'protected' industries. "If the Democratic party will only maintain a proper proportion among the reforms it advocates and now de vote its attention, without shirking other reforms, to a genuine reform of the tariff, it will not only benefit enormously the great masses of the people, but it will as well regain the political control of the Nation, from which it has been ousted for ten years largely because when in power it failed adequately to reform this very same abuse." William A. Gaston said: "I believe the Democratic party should lay great stress in the coming campaign upon the necessity of tariff revision. That is one of the subjects which the plat form must include. There are other, but not so important, matters for dis cussion." LAUNCH BOOM TOMORROW. Eagles Wnnt iiMW Notional Session lo be Held Here. Banking on the pledges made by delegates to the Eagles' field day here last week from all parts of New Eng land the New Haven aerie has now de termined to organize a regular boom I to get the national convention here in measures to get the boom under way will be discussed and probably acted upon. ' The delegate from this city to the 1008 convention to be held in Seat tle, Wa'Sh., is William J. Cronln, now the worthy president of the aerie, and it is proposed to load him down when he goes west with thousands of New Haven buttons for distribution among the national delegates and the visitors there. The impression made on the other New Englanders here was so good that the visitors promised to support New Haven for the convention, and inasmuch as the 1908 session is held In the far west it is held that the east la entitled to the next national meet. New Haven aerie-is one of the larg est and wealthiest in New England, and therefore one of the most able to care for a national meet. As yet New Haven seems to be in the field alone as no other city has launched a boom for the convention and the New Ha veners feel certain that this city has as good a chance as any other place to pull off a winner for the conven tion.

Most , people imagine, now that San Francisco's oriental school problem has ceased to be a nine days' wonder to the world, that her difficulties with the Japanese are settled. This, however, is far from being the case. Of San Fran cisco's troubles over the little brown men the keynote has only been sound ed, and the future bids fair to prove prolific in new phases of the Nipponese problem. A bone of contention growing daily more important as a t'asus belli is the invasion of San Francisco's "close in" residence districts by the Japanese merchant and tradesman, who are con verting the abode of the American cler ical, professional and business man in to shops, bazars, hotels and other pub lic establishments to such an extent that the men of the flat and furnished room in that vast area flanking the business district are being rapidly ban ished from their homes. To those un acquainted with conditions San Fran ciscan this may seem absurd. The explanation is simple. Let us take the example of the pros perous small merchant or professional man with a family and a seven-room flat. We will recite the case of Blank, who has a store in the new business district. Ho has lived for years in Geary Post, Bush, Pine, or Sutter street, somewhere between Van Ness avenue and the park, or on one of tho cross 3treets between Sacramento and Mar ketwhich gives us, for the sake of ar gument, several square miles to choose from. Before the fire Blank paid $40, and after it $50, which is about the limit of his purse. Then the landlord demands another $10 increase. Blank protests, but, finally, sublets the "front parlor" and hands over the $00. After I about 60 days, notice of a raise to $75 is given. Blank calls on the agent. and has a heart-to-heart talk with him. "This is an outrage," he says, with out circumlocution. . "You are asking about 20 per cent, interest on tho val ue of tho property. I can't stand it. It is unjust. The neighborhood is de teriorating. Japanese barber shops and pool-rooms are starting n the same block. Japanese children play with my youngsters. All the good people are moving away." "Ah," exclaims the agent. "There you have it, Blank. The Japs are offering more for your flat than I am asking you now.. I could rent it for $100 inside of a week!" Then Blank forgets . his anger in amazement' and asks more questions. He learns that the seven rooms in which he quarters from six to eight people, will provide "comfortable ac commodation" for half a hundred little brown men, women and children. The basement will house a barber shop, laundry office and ' pool-room, with bunking, cooking ftnd eating facilities for proprietor and employes. The "front parlor" will hold eight cots, for which $5: per month can easily be obtained. The other rooms will contain without difficulty from five to six cots or mats each, including the combined dining room and kltchen.iiwhere tho cooks, waiters, chambermaids'' and proprietors sleep with charming disregard for sex conventions. The baci? porch is good for five or six more guests. I Blank knows the multiplication table and asks no more questions. He sub mits to the inevitable and moves, as many of his contemporaries have al ready done before him. Hore and there the Jap encounters a property-owner with Americanism enough to be ob stinate. This delays, but does not daunt him. If the properly is not es pecially desirable, he 'passes it up" temporarily, knowing that, by and by, the white residents will move out of a Jap-ridden neighborhood. Thus it has been on Geary street, which, for a dis tance of eight blocks, is largely Jap anese of habitation.. Especially is this the case on tho block from Lflguna to Buchanan street, where there are but two white tenants. !At Post and La guna streets the ground floor of a new apartment-house has been rented to Japanese, including a tailor, banker, seed and notion merchant, and haber dasher. Tills is a locality formerly de voted to high-class apartments and adjoins the fashionable St. Hllalre flats. Almost within stone's throw are the Majestic, Dorchester and Atherton hotels, where the cltys' elite lodge.. Thus it is all through the residence district; not only the middle class has been driven from home, but the man sions of many of the socially elect now bear the curious twisted characters of the Nippon tongue. In the very shadow of old Trinity's august walls the Jap anese merchant flourishes 'like a weed, and in the block opposite is a line of Japanese hotels, shops and offices, in- eluding a Buddhist mission, where weird and noisy rituals compete with the song services of the American place of worship. Some idea of the Japanese Invasion may be gained from the fact that three daily newspapers are successfully pub lished in San Francisco, one of them, the Japanese Dally New World, hav ing a plant equipped with linotype machines, presses of the latest design and an equipment which compares fa vorably with those of the American dailies. A metropolitan staff of report ers and editors and advertising men provide "copy" for from eight to twelve pages of printed matter, and the books of the paper show a bona fide circula tion of something like 40,000 copies. The Japanese Daily News . and the Japanese American command, between them, an equally large subscription list. The Japanization of San Francisco had just begun when the fire of 1906 wiped out the Nipponese colonies. Three months late, however, a police report, admittedly incomplete, made the fol lowing startling showing of Japanese in the western addition: Dwellers in "hotels," "missions." etc., whose occu pation was not obtainable, 664; bazars, 64; shoemakers, 39; housecleanlng com panies, 28; restaurants, in addition to those connected with boarding places, 33; several doctors; fruit stands, 19; barbers, 23; groceries, 8; banks, 17; tailors, 21; billiard "parlors," 9; hab erdasheries, 11; stationery stores, 4; em ployment offices, 28; laundries, 12; tin stores, three; florists, three; jewelry stores, three; bathhouses, 10; bakeries, 11; carpenters, 22; real estate dealers, nine. In all, it was estimated that, aside from domestic, there were, in this district, more than a thousai 'Japan ese. There are now 1.0,000 in the same territory, and the number of Japanese establishments hase more than quad rupled since that time Leslie's Weekly.
