This, It Is Believed, Will Put an End
to Present Buying and Sell.
ing of Per
No step taken by the pQllce commis
sion so far has created as much con
sternation in liquor circles as the an
nouncement by Commissioner Wellborn
that he, as one member of the com
mission, would not as?ree to the transfer
of any liquor permit from the holder
to any one the holder might designate.
but that each applicant must take his
turn, and that all things being equal
the Hrst to come would be the first
While the commission has not defi
nitely adopted this as a policy by the
commission, individual members are
ready to agree with Commissioner
Wellborn. If this policy is carried out.
it means that no saloon can be sold, for i
the dealer cannot guarantee to the pur
chaser that he will receive a permit to
conduct the business, and a saloon
■without a permit Is not of much value.
The new system, If It Is finally adopt
ed, will mean that If a saloon keeper
surrenders his permit the commission
•will not grant It to some one who may
have purchased his stock and fixtures,
t>ut that if there are other applicants
the one who first applies will be first
considered, and the purchaser of the
saloon must take his place on the wait
ing list until his turn comes. When his
turn does come there is nothing that
guarantees he will receive the permit,
and he may have stock and fixtures on
his hands that will be of no value.
Individual commissioners consider
this would be the best plan that could
be devised to stop the traffic In licenses.
R. J. Dillon, attorney for the Maier
Brewing company, told the police com
mission Wednesday night that the traf
fic In licenses was not confined to brew
eries and wholesalers, but that individ
uals who held retail licenses sold them
for high prices when they sold their
Henry Westerburg Becomes Angered
When He Gazes In on Food.
Laden Trays In
NEW YORK, Jan. 18.—Two large
Indian clubs, tied In a bundle, crashed
through the heavy plate glass win
dows on the Thirty-third street side
of the Waldorf-Astoria dining room,
close to Fifth avenue, scattering glass
In every direction.
The sudden breaking of glass fright
ened all in the crowded room. Walters
dropped laden trays and men and
women scrambled to their feet, upset
ling glasses and china. No one knew
exactly what had happened.
Outside stood a man who was look
ing at the broken window through
which he had hurled the Indian clubs.
He made no attempt to get away. He
didn't care to get away. He was des
perate and hungry.
The man was Henry Westerburg, 34
years old, of 441 Pacific street, Brook
lyn. A carpenter, he had been out of
work for four months and all his sav
ings were spent. For two days he
had had nothing to eat.
Early in the day he walked to a
sporting goods store in Nassau street,
from his home, and explained he had
lieen a champion club-swinger in Swe
den years ago and believed he could
pick up a little money by giving exhi
bitions of club-swinging in saloons.
He showed the manager what he
could do in that line and begged that
he be trusted for a pair of Indian
clubs. The manager said he would
give him a pair.
So Westerburg started out, and al
though he went to many saloons he
rould not summon up courage to try
the new game, and he passed them all
by. gradually working his way fur
ther up town.
So it was that at the luncheon hour
he came to be standing outside the
"Waldorf-Astoria. He looked in at the
preat windows and saw all the tables
filled with people eating and drinkuiif.
The siijht fascinated the hungry
man. For many minutes he gazed in,
and then a great rage filled him to
think they could eat and eat and eat,
while he must go hungry.
Without stopping to think of the
consequences he lifted his bundle,
cave it a mighty swing and sent it
whirling at the nearest window. P«.>
great was the force that it not only
crashed through the plate glass, but
went over three tables before it fell
>vith a thump on the floor.
When some of the servant! ran out
to the street they found Weaterburg
standing quietly by the rurh and smil
ing a little as he watched the commo
tion in the restaurant. John Dnnohue,
a footman, held him until the house
detective came. Then he wan taken
to the West Thirtieth street station.
A little later Westerburg was ar
raigned before Magistrate Kernochan
Sn Jefferson markut court. To him he
told his story.
"I was hungry," he said, "and It
made me angry to see them eating
•when I had nothing. Finally my arm
came up and I threw the clubs with
out half knowing what I was doing.
I suppose I must go to jail, but I will
pet something to eat there. It will be
better than tramping the streets."
Magistrate Kernochan expressed
sympathy for the man, but had to hold
liim for trial on a charge of malicious
mischief. When Westerburg was sit
ting in a cell a little later a waiter
from a nearby restaurant appeared
■with a well-laden tray and set It be
fore the hungry man.
"Compliments of the Judge," said
the waiter.
A Thougthless Question
"Have you ever seen an Italian sun-
Bet?" asked the artist.
"No, I never have," replied the lady
Jn the studio.
"Well, that painting of mine over
there Is an Italian sunset."
"Oh, indeed! And does It look any
thing like —Yonkers Statesman.

Lucky St. Loulsan Given Chance to
Meet Original and Makes
Most of It
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 20.— Eight months
ago Harry Relnberg saw a picture on
the society page of a New York paper.
He had never heard of the original, but
he liked the photogTaph. A week from
tomorrow he will brinff her to St. Louis
as his bride.
Shortly after Relnberg had clipped
the picture he wits visited here by his
cousin, Dr. Julius Conn of New York.
"There is just a chance in a million that
you know this lady," he said to his
visitor as he showed him the clipping
within ten minutes after they had ex
changed their flrßt greeting.
"It's a long shot, but it wins," said
the doctor. "I married her lister.
There's only one thing for you to do.
We'll cut short St. Louis on this visit;
you come to New York with me."
Reinbcrg accepted his cousin's Invi
tation, and in a few days was intro
duce! to the original of the picture,
Miss Francon Alexander, daughter of
a wealthy optical goods jobber in
During the next two months ho made
three Hying trips to the metropolis. As
this was before the 24-hour trains were
put on ho found it a tedious matter go-
Ing back and forth, so he decided to |
bring the "picture lady" to St. Louis. |
She "was willing, and the date was set.
Street Car Accident on New York
Bowery Accompanied by
No Fatality
NEW YORK, Jan. 20.—"Lift this car
off me! Let me out of here!"
t This In a feminine voice, high
pitched and tremulous with fright.
Then a crowd at the Bowery and
Broome street, whilh had stood with
blanched faces expecting to see the
mangled form of a girl dragged from
beneath tho wheels of a Third'avenue
car, heaved a sigh of relief.
In crossing the Bowery last night
during the homeward rush hour, Min
nie Rubin, 1G years old, of IHO Broome
street, was run down by a car, yet
she escaped with only a few bruises.
Hundreds who heard her Bcreamg and
saw her disappear under the car
thought she had been killed.
The excited crowd started to mob
the motorvnan, but the reappearance of
the jfirl, alive and able to worry about
her pretty new black broadcloth dress
that had been ruined, stopped that,
When the car struck the girl she
was knocked several feet, and al
though tbS~ motorman applied his
brake! :;hc disappeared beneath the
car. But when she was knocked down
she landed is an excavation, having
I been helped there by the fender, and
the car passed over her. This hole was
I not mire than two feet deep, but it
saved !ier Hfe.

St. Croix Crew Exonerated
Tho government inspectors at San Francisco
Iki\o exonerated Captain Fred Warner and

Building New Lumber Carriers
Notwithstanding the prevailing low freight
jiitos, compared with those of a few years
;i?n, tho lumber market seems to demand
more steam schooners. A few month! ago
.l largo number of the sailing vessels were
tied up In Oakland enck because of slink
:-hipments of lumher and low freight rates.
Now practically all the tailing trenail are In
service again and more big steam schooriers
are being built.
The steamer Klamath. now In port, Is the
latest production of the Bendixon yards at
Eureka for the Charles It. McCormtck com
pany, but work was begun there this week,
■>n the keel of another for the Hammond
Lumber company. Another steamer will also
bo built for the Freeman company at Eu
reka. At Long Beach two steamers are being
built for the Hammond Lumber company.
The tendency is toward larger veisell for
coastwise lumber traffic as well as for deep
■ea shipping. The average steam schooner
Of the present day carries about 700,000 feet
of lumber, but some of the larger ones carry
us high as 2.000,000 feet. The Klamath has a
capacity of 1.200,000 feet. She has passenger
accommodations equal to some of the finest
steamers engaged in the passenger business
exclusively. The Klamath cost $1(30,000 and Is
modern in every detail, oqulpped with wireless
and has triple expansion engines of 1000
