NEW YORK. May 21.? An important
step designed to protect American au
thor* was taken here. At a formal
meeting of the board of managers of
the American Society of Authors held
lu the office of the president, former
Surrogate Hastus 8. Unusom. Pouitney
Bigelow offered a resolution, which was
unanimously adopted, pledging the le
gal assistance of the society to all the
members of the London Society of Au
thors in return for reciprocal treat
ment. The American author can sub
mit his contract to the society's lawyer
gratis, the privilege of legal advice be
ing u right following payment of his
membership fee. He can also ask ad
vice of English counsel in inference to
the English market.
Mr. Bigelow. who will sail today an
the Friedrich Wllhelm der Grosse. was
much pleased with the prompt and fa
vorable action of the society u|)on his
resolution. Explaining what It means
practically, he said:
"The whoie success of the English
society. In my opinion, is based, aside
from the wonderful character and en
ergy of the late Walter Besant. upon
the feature that the English society
gives its members the benefit of flrat
class legal advice. So far we have had
nothing of the kind. Th? principal diffi
culty here is that, through the high coat
of living, moat of our authors in and
about New York are compelled to be.
directly or indirectly, the satellites of
the great publishing houses.
"Our great independent writers for
the most part live far away or in Eu
rope. We have about 10,000 men who
can be classed as authors in the sense
that they are directly Interested in the
relation of author and publisher. These
10, 000 care very little for a society that
limits itself to giving dinners to dis
tinguished men of letters, but they are
keenly alive to one which will obtain
for them the right to send manuscript
as second class matter and which will
give them practical aid when they are
unjustly treated by a publisher.
"The American Society of Author*
has been looked jit askance to far be
cause of its lack of practical purpose.
From this time on 1 believe we will
not only do for American authors all
that the English do for English au
thors; but. owing to the larger reading
public In America, we will be of even
greater importance. It has been my
idea to try to do something of this na
ture while over here. I am going back
to discuss this thing with the English
society and to put it through."
The secretary of the American socie
ty is G. Grosvenor Itawe.
Sesiloa Hold ?> Steamer.
BALTIMORE. May 21.? The second
session of the American Press Humor
ists was held on board the steamer
Kmma Giles, which took the members

"down the bay" as the guest* of the

was made at Annapolis, where tlie par
ty were shown through the grounds
and the new buildings by Captain Col
ahan, commander of cadeta. Tempo
rary President Warner presided over
the business session, at which a consti
tution was adopted and the Ameri
can Press Humorists decided upon as
the official name of the organization.
The constitution provides that only
those who contribute regularly to
newspapers are eligible to membership.
The members were entertained at a
theater party at Ford's Opera House.
New Electric Line Opened.
SCRANTON, Pa., May 21.? The new
