TUESDAY, FEBUCAIIT IS, lOT. RURAL SECTIONS OF NEW YORK ASKED To Feed'BIrds Starving From Excessive Recent Snows In That State. SECURITIES OlTfHE GREAT CITY NOTJEILINS WEIL Demand Made That Real Steps be Taken to Stop the Ravages of Consumption. New York, Feb. 19. The first se vere snowstorms of the winter whlcn have occurred during the past few weeks, have called attention to the laws which are In force in this state for the preservation of the wild birds, and the commissioners of birds are now directing special notices to the paragraph which Is added to the ab stracts of the game laws for distri bution about the state, requesting the public to feed the birds. There are many persons who do this, and In the way the birds respond to the treat there is ample cause for satis faction. The food may be placed for the birds wherever they are seen feeding, and their haunts may easily be learned. It is to be hoped that the birds will not be forgotten for with their regular supply of food cut off, all birds, plume, song and insec tivorous alike are in danger of exter mination by cold and hunger. A small supply of grain, table scraps, or the sweepings from hay mows will do much to relieve their distress, while pieces of meat, or suet, hung on trees will be eaten by carnivarous birds. In the feeding of the birds it is a great advantage to begin before the severe weather sets in so that they may become accustomed to the plac es where food will be found and more readily return there when in need. In cities bread crumbs on the window nils will collect the birds. child with heavens blue In Its eyes, and angelic smiles on Its face and a heart full of love and devotion, that Is out of the question. It can be consigned to the slums and ash bar rels, or orphan homes, but they must have their poodle dog or Teddy-bear. There are homes where no child voices ring and It Is nobodys fault; but the woman whose heart throbs responslvely as she rubs the cold nose of a pug-dog against her face and is satisfied, Is only better than the otn er who sits In her carriage hugging a Teddy-bear while some of the most lovable bundles of human possibili ties are being raised like little chil dren In a patent brooder at public expense. Every sensible soul revolts at this condition of modern society, for the poor, pinched, starved chil dren In this city who have been ousted by the pug-dog and Teddy-bear still continue to sulTer. Looking at the whole question and analysing It as It appears to us we can only say that a woman's love never reaches Its pos sibilities where It Is content to turn away from motherhood of some kind to expend Itself on a poodle or an In animate bundle of stuffed rags. Itavagra of White riaguc. The demand that the health board shall change Its methods and take some real steps towards checking the ravages of consumption In this city by destroying the tuberculosis germs In the milk brought here every day Is commencing to bear fruit. Dr. Darlington, the president of the health board, estimates that there are 300,000 tuberculosis cattle In this state while only about one-eight of the milk is pasteurized or sterilized. It is admitted by the authorities that milk has been labelled, as authorized when It was never treated. Accord ing to the best experts on pasteur ization, germs are not at all destroy ed until the milk is subjected to a temperature of 166 degrees for at least twenty minutes. Samples of milk taken from stores recently have frequently shown 1,000,000 germs to the quart. Dr. W. II. rark, thje health board's bacteriologist, has an nounced that no germ free milk is sold In New York, and that the soon er some real steps are taken to pre vent the sale of poluted milk In the city the better. WILIIAM PARKINSON. Rockefeller In New York. Mr. Rockefeller's fllttlngs, as told by the newspapers, have been an In teresting tale. The papers have had him all over the country, and Indeed all parts of the habitable globe. Some of the telegrams had him flying from town to town, and none have been more entertaining than Mr. Rocke feller himself, who has laughed and grown fat as he read of himself at the same time in places miles apart. He must have admired his own agility and ubiquitous qualities, and must have thought himself a veritable spirit, and yet all the while he was going to and from his office and house dally Just as in ordinary times when there were no process- servers around. " That is a very easy thing to do in New York, which Is the best hiding place in the world if precautions are . taken. Very few can recognize even such a subject for photograph and carrlcature as Air. Rockefeller as he passes along the streets In carriage or auto, and if he chooses a slight disguise it is almost impossible for anyone to de tect him. As he has the ability to surround his movements with mystery and can have all the approaches to .his grounds and offices under the strictest surveilance, It is the easiest way of playing hide-and-seek that he could adopt. Probably his many agents are the authors of the hun dreds of telegrams locating him at different places. Some were manu factured, undoubtedly, by the news papers for sport, but it Is possible and quite probable, that the Stand ard Oil company has created this great structure of fanciful ubiquity, under the shadow of which Mr. Rockefeller has played his great joke on the American press. It is, how ever, a pregnant commentary on the value of riches, that the richest man in America has to flit from pillar to post and finds the air full of pursuers, imaginary and real. And yet what an example of the majesty of the law it affords, that a mighty man of wealth fears a few slips of paper, that, in the name of the law, commands him to be present somewhere at some time. City Ilondg Not In Demand. The bonds of the city of New York are no longer the head of the proces sion as the solid, stable leaders of municipal securities, commanding the highest price from eager and numer ous buyers, and her "fours" do not bring as much as they did a few years buck. The city is now paying & higher rate than it ever has been compelled to pay since consolidation and the rate will probably increase as the prices of the bonds decline. The troth is, the city of New York, great New York, as it proudly calls itself. Is spending money very lavish ly and Us financiers are figuring nervously and eagerly all the while at the borrowing capacity of the muni cipality and when It shows a large increase there Is great Joy In the ranks of the officials for they are then able to figure large additional expenditures. An increase of rate ables has put It In the power, it is thought of the municipal authorities to issue bonds sufficient to build a new subway, and so we have new buildings ad libitum, new avenues, new streets and new expenditure In every direction. The city Is flourish ing, that Is certain, but its tax rate is high, and there is every prospect of its Increasing. And there Is not a club, or society, or organization that attends to city matters that Is pro testing against 'expenditures. Though the city's credit is most assuredly damaged by heavy expenditure it will still be further damaged If the pres ent municipal ownership idea in put forward.

JUSTICEJU SCANDAL Boy Whose Only Name Was Teddy Is Named by Trial Judge Teddy Bear. London, Feb. 19. The life story of William Whlteley, "the universal pro vider," who was shot to death in his great department store after a pri vate interview with a young man claiming to be his son, Is that of a man born and bred on a farm, but whose exceptional native abilities brought him to a high pitch of suc cess in the business world. The names of many English firms are known all over the globe, but in this case it was the Individual who had gained wide fame, and William Whlteley came to be regarded as the very embodiment of all that was en terprising In his own domain of com merce. It was his boast that he could supply anything ordered at his establishment, and many were the at tempts made to challenge the ac curacy of this assertion. An elephant. a second-hand coffin, and, most curi ous of all, a pint of fleas, were among the "goods he was called on to provide, and In each case the order was duly filled. "I don't say th fleas were In stock," he would say when Interrogated on this point, "but they were procured." When as a lad he came from Yorkshire to London to seek his for tune, Whlteley did not even have a ten-pound note at his command. After gaining experience as a drap ers' assistant, he rented a small Bhop, engaged two young lady clerks, and In 1863 took down his shutters. The first to enter the shop was a lady. 'Ain I your first customer?" she asked. "You are, madam," replied the young tradesman. The lady thereupon suggested that she might offer up a prayer for the success of the business, and it was thus that the great house of Whlteley was founded. About this time Whlteley formed an Intimacy with George Rayner, a young financial agent friendship which had for Its tragic sequel the death of Whlteley, for t was Rayner's reputed son, Horace George Rayner, who committed the crime, and who claims that his real name is Cecil Whlteley, and that his victim was his father. Young Ray ner refuses to go Into particulars pending his aratgnment, but an old friend of the elder Rayner and of Whlteley has thrown some 'light on the mystery. He relates that many years ago Whlteley and Rnyntr were acquainted with two young ladies (sisters), and the two frequently went to Brighton together to vlit the girls. It was over this acquaintance ship that a quarrel arose and drought the friendship of the two men to an abrupt end. An accusation by White ley against Rayner led to a threaten ed suit for slander, but the matter never came Into court. "The exact nature of the quarrel Is not easy to state In plain words," says the old friend of the principals. "Sufrice It to say that Rayner threatened White ley with an action for standi r In re spect of a charge which the latter made against one of the youn? ladles and Rayner. I do not know exactly what connection this may have with the claim the murderer is said to have made that his name is Cecil Whlteley, but it may have boon that when he called on Whlteley he threatened him with some disclosure In connection with the old scandal I refer to." Whlteley's attorneys deny that any such person as Cecil White ley exists. The family, they declare, never heard of such a person as the assailant made himself out to be. They are entirely Ignorant of the mo tives which actuated the commission of the tragedy. The police hnve pos session of a package of documents found In Rayner's rooms which. It Is believed, relate to the hidden story, but, of course, they will be withheld from the public until- Rayner Is put on trial. So far the only clew Is a slip of paper found on Rayner after his attempted suicide on which was penciled the following declaration: "To All Whom It May Concern William Whlteley Is my father, and has brought upon himself and me a double fatality by reason of his own refusal of a request perfectly rea sonable.

P.." j Princess Trlxlo Failed tho King. i Princess Trlxle disappointed King Edward and the royal household by falling to respond to a summons to appear at Buckingham Palace and display her thinking powers.

Trlxle had caught a cold and symptoms of pneu monia made It Imperative that she stay Indoors.

Thtlr former favorite, the poodle dog, has hud his day and he must now give way to his successor. As for them carrying that precious hand work of the Almighty, a laughing Special Correspondence. Washington, D. C, Feb. 19. Tne federal government has moved for the extermination of lottery selling In the United States, and the things that are coming to light in conse quence will afford some sensations. Incidentally there will be criminal prosecutions which will involve men of Wealth . and social standing In many of the big cities of the United State''. The government has "got the goods" on the lottery at last. A na tional raid was pulled oft the other day under the joint auspices of the federal and state authorities, and In a score of cities the dragnet gather ed In the damning evidences of guilt. Even in Washington, under the shadow of the capitol building, the Il legal printing of lottery tickets was discovered. W. J. Demerest and M. O'Donnell, of New Orleans, and Jos. H. Lyons, of Mobile, lawyers for the lottery. nastenea to Washington and sought conferences with Assistant Attorney General Hoyt and Mr. Cooley, and It Is suld, have offered to wind up the company and go out of business If the criminal actions were dropped. But there is nothing doing with the government on the compromise proposition. It Is the Jail for re spectable citizens. Few people have any Idea of the magnitude of the lottery business done In the United States. The Na tional Honduras Lottery company Is Incorporated for $10,000,000, and It pays the Honduras government 1100. 000 a year for the concession. The concession amounts to little more thun the privilege of doing business under that name, and having the drawings In Puerto Cortez. The greatest part of the money amount ing to hundreds of thousands of dol lars every month Is drawn from the working people of the United States. There p.re agencies of the lottery In every large and many of the small er cities in the United States. The Chicago agent has admitted that his receipts amounted to $60,000 a month. In California the business has flour ished, and the San Francisco returns are said to have been much larger than this. It has been estimated by officials of the department of Justice that close to $1,000,000 a month la taken in by the American agents of the Honduras company. The dividends are naturally enor mous. The prizes distributed make up but a small per cent of the amount of money taken In, and the men who have been pocketing the dividends have been tapping a gold mine. In most cases the source of their wealth is not known to their UNCLE SAM'S "BIO. STICK" IS HOT AFTER THE FAT RASCALS WHO GET THE CHOICE NIBBLINGS FROM THE GREAT LOTTERY CHEESE. fellow citizens. They generally pose as "insurance" or "real estatn" mn- and their communities will be shock ed when they learn the truth. The most valuable evidence gather ed In the recent big raid was that turned up at Mobile. At this point Mr. Wllkle's men came down upon a local printing plant at 2 o'clock In the morning. Tickets, drawing llHts, names of agents, and secret codes were among the evidence gathered here. The raid at Mobile was the signal for action In the other places, and the government's agents moved simul taneously at New Orleans, East St. Louis, Peorpla, Cincinnati, Indian apolis, Chicago, Boston, San Fran cisco, Summervllle and Lynn, Mass., Philadelphia and Washington. The lists of agents and employes of tho company enabled the government to gather In a lot of people who gave valuable Information in order to se cure immunity for themselves. Then the Southern Express company sent Its attorney to the department of Justice to offer the company's aid and co-operation. As most of the tickets had been distributed through the ex press carriers, this was a tremendous help. The agents of the lottery who ship ped the tickets were In most cases former employes of the express com panies and entirely familiar with ex press business. They were careful to see that there never was any record of their shipments at the point of origin. This was avoided by having the package thrust Into the express car at the last moment, after the local books had been made up. The agents never used their own names, and never used the same alias twice. Names were furnished from some central operating point each month to each agent, and the com muncatlon was In cipher. The prosecutions will be conducted under the interstate commerce act of 1895 which contained an anti-lottery clause making It Illegal to "cause to be transported In interstate com merce" any advertising matter or lottery tickets. It is the purpose of the government officials to get at the Men who are really behind tho lottery the big, respectable and ri'-h men who have been drawing profit from this source for forty years. The Louisiana st.'ite lottery was driven from th,e United States In 1892, and had been nourishing f.r a quarter of a century before that. The stockholder In that concern, who were mostly citizens of the Uni ted States, took ttock in the new Honduras concern, and have con tinued to draw their dividends. Wot.

"Take them as tricks If you like," says he wltn a flavor In his accent of the High lands, where he and Trlxle were born and bred; "they are better tricks than any other horse can do, and if the profound gentleman of the society can discover her secret to the satis faction of public opinion they win my hundred." Scandal at Vienna. Next to the Thaw trial, the most engaging piece on the boards of hu man drama is having Its presentation at Vienna. A great sensation has been caused by a scandal concerning M. Polonyl, the Hungarian minister of justice. The accusation against the minister has caused a great agU tatlon, and Emperor Franz Josef is terribly annoyed. It is alleged that while the emperor and the Hun garian parliament were at logger heads recently M. Polonyl Induced Baroness Bella Schoenburger, an In timate friend of Count Paar, the emperor's adjutant general, to spy out what his majesty was saying about the Hungarian party, and at the same time to spread in court circles news from the opposition camp calculated to Influence the emperor. For this service M. Polonyl promised the baroness 2,000, but as the money was not forthcoming she complained to M. Rudnay, director of the Buda pest police. The baroness Is said to have compromising letters from M. Polonyl, which he was anxious to get back, some of them being of a na ture to bring disaster on Hungary should their contents be made public. She refused to return them, and when the baroness last called on the minister he, thinking she had the telltale letters with her, resorted to violence, and after a struggle over powered and searched her, but failed to find the documents. This M. Polonyl admits having done "for the welfare of the country." The bar oness tried to commit suicide, and thus the wretched story got Into print. The Hungarian government Issued a statement declaring that while It was known that secret Infor mation was being received from Vien na, they did not know to what lengths M. Polonyl had gone to obtain It. They requested him to resign, but he refuses to do so, and It seems likely that the entire cabinet will resign and will be reconstructed without M. Polonyl. Judge Calls Him Teddy Hear. The only name he was able to give was "Teddy." He was eighteen, bright of face and pleasing of speech, but absolutely ignorant of ever hav ing a surname, and he had no notion who his parents were, or whether they were living or dead. His earliest recollections were those of living in Devonshire with his grandmother, but In what place or what the grand mother's name was had treacher ously slipped his memory. At seven or thereabouts he came to London, i In whose company he could not recol lect, and since then, for a dozen years, he had gained his living as best he could. Brought before Magls- , trate Plowden, London's most noted j police Judge, on a charge of mlsde i meanor, fills youth without a name ; or family tie quite won the sympa thy of the court. "So your name Is I only Teddy?" said the Judge. "I h.ivtj an Idea," he continued, as a smile broke out at the corners of his mouth and mounted to the roots of his hair, "that you ought to be christened, even late as it Is In your childhood. The name that suggests Itselt in connection with Teddy Is Roosevelt, but Inasmuch us your manner of living affords no guaran tee against your bringing such a proud patronymic Into disrepute the court will have recourse to another name which suggests Itself as fitting, and accordingly I shrlsten thee "Ted dy Bear."
