NAMES OF FAMOUS MEN FILL VOLUME New York Directory of 1786 Is Owned by James Bowles of Hollywood REAL BULLS IN WALL STREET List of Lawyers Contains Refer ences to Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr James Bowles, a retired capitalist of Los Angeles living on the Bowles tract in Ea3t Hollywood, is tlie owner of one of a very few copies in existence of the first city directory of New York. It was printed in 1786 by Noah "Webster of directory fame and contains the names and addresses, together with the occupations, of 6000 New Yorkers. The population of the city by the Hudson is said at that time to have been 24,000. The directory is rich in information as to the boundary and character of the rity at tlmt time: in clipplns from various newspaper? published then, and in advertisements of firms, BOrne of them vi existence and doing business near tlio old stands today. FAMOUS FAMIT.IE9 LISTED Amonpr the names in the directory are some which are famous today as synonymous of great wealth. Others are known to history. Tin' founders of some of the families in the multi-mil lionaire class who have married title nbroncl or lounged at Nowpart are shown by this little hook, with its well worn pages, to have been men of hard labor. Here is shown a cobbler living on New Queen street; there a harness maker living near the Battery. Further along? comes to view a name represen tative of the modern rich who on the pases of this book was a. town house keeper. Side by side, under the list of at torneys-, are the names of Aaron Burr, and of Alexander Hamilton, who died in a dm! with Burr. Little advertise ments show that Burr today might have been the president Of a chamber of commerce or the head of a large real estate firm. CtTBiOUS or.n ai)veuti»i;ments On January 5, ITSfi, Benjamin Jacobs Inserted an advertisement in a New Tork paper advising the public that his wife had seen in to leave his home and warning them that lie would not b« responsible for bills Incurred by her. Elizabeth Jacobs, til.' wife, evidently read the advertisement, and on Jan uary 9 she retorted thus: "Elizabeth Jacobs, who was adver tised by her husband on the sth inst., informs the public that she was com pelled by his cruel treatment to leave him: that no person that knows him would trust him with a shilling, and la happy that the law protects her from jiuyiiiK lii'; debts." Perusal of the newspaper clippings in tlie directory show the same pas sions, the same Joys and sorrows swayed the knee-breeched public then as now. The papers appear to have exercised a parental influence on the public they would not attempt now, iind great chances are taken with libel. Whether at that time the editor or owner of a newspaper possessed enough money to make him the fitting object tor a libel suit cannot lie learned from the pages, bui the newspaper man reading the clippings today must ; the early editors with much courage. JJOTES ON F.MITY TREASURY Frequent mention Is made In the clip pings of the "hard up" condition of the public and private treasury. An edi torial liner exclaims: "Oh, cash, where thou flown?" The : <]' nts of hairdressers, in those days, nun, give a fair Idea of the splendor of the colonial d wardrobe and the description of "me ■ !■ address with Its "hair pad" hints strongly to an existen ;' the far-famed puff in those days as well as these. In fact the vanities of the i\ are vividly outlined and the woman comes in for strict editorial censiir . An editor has accepted the advertise ment of a "race track meet" in which the best racing blood of the state is to compete. He accepts the ad, but writes the cop: according to his own notion of Its propriety. The ad reads: "O yea, O yea—This is to give notice to all lovers of cruelty and lovers of misery, that yesterday was begun on the Maiden Head racing ground, In the Bowery, which will continue for sev eral days to come, the high blood sport of horse racing. This cannot but Rive delight to ev ery breast thoroughly divested of hu manity. Musi cursea and Impreca tions will resound from every tent, by both male and female. SEVERE PENALTIES IN COVRTB An idea or the severity of penalties inilicted at that time for offensea and crimes committed ayainst the law may lie given from the following news ar ticle: "At the supreme court held "'i Sat urday, Jan 'JX, the following judgments were given, viz.: William Wright for highway robbery, 10 be executed on the 3d of March xt; William Broke, alias William Smith, convicted of frand larceny, prayed for benefit of ] clergy, and was branded; Henry Wit liam Delius, John Hamson, Nathaniel Button and John Lambert, severally convicted of petit larceny and sen tenced to be publicly whipped; Wil- , 11am Vanderlocht was convicted of a misdemeanor, in placing his own 1 note with a forged Indorsement, and ! ■was sentenced to six months' Imprison- | inent in the common jail." The name of Smith appears to be so common in even New York of that i day that Col, William Smith, late of I Ked Mill, notifies the public through the press that he as added the initial M, to his name in order to distinguish ; himself from the hust. In the directory the family names of I Vanderbilt, Astor and Roosevelt ap pear. Aaron Buir lived on Well street a few doora from tho famous "Pit." Wall street even then was bothered with bulls, but of the bovino variety Burr complains to the city watch that bulls are daily in Wall street and i the watch fearlessly goes about his duty by warning tho public through the press to keep the bulls out of Wall street or sulfur their confiscation. Jacob Astor, No. 18 Queen street, two doors from Friends' meeting house, Bold musical Instruments. Frequent mention Is made In the newspapers of runaway negroes and I Indemnity servants serving their pass age from tho old country under mas ters in the old w .rid.

One hogshead of leaf tobacco was stolen "Wednesday even- Ing last, from the Yellow Store, No 2. Hunter's Key, th» lar rewards and returned to the same tasks. The directory also gives an accurate description of tho city limits in I"S6, nnd favors Broadway as the coining business street. Webster says of New York: "The city stands on the southwest ; point of an island, at the confluence of the Hudson and East rivers. The principal part of the city lies on the east side of the island. The length of tne city on the East river is about two miles; but falls far short of that distance on the banks of the Hudson. The city hall is a brick building more strong than elegant. It Is three stor. lea in height, with wings at each end. It fronts on Broad street. The first floor is an open walk except two small apartmenta for the door keeper and city watch. CONGRESS SESSION IN GOTHAM "In the second story of the eastern wing is the assembly chamber, occu pied by congress and adorned by the following paintings: The portrait of the great Columbus belonging to the ibly of state; the likeness of the king and queen of France, presented j to '(ingress by his most Christian majeaty as pledges of royal friendship. "A want of good water is a great inconvenience to the citizens, there be ing few wells in the city. Most of the people are supplied every day with I'n.sh water, conveyed to their doors in casks from a pump near Queen Street, which receives it from a pond three miles away In the country." A statement is made that enterpris ing citizen* of JSew York are seriously considering the Installation of pipes from the pond to the houses. Young women attending seminaries In those days were forced to furnish their rooms. An ad reads, "French and English boarding school opened at 27 William street, within five doors of the North church. Each young- lady j to bring her own bedding and chest j of drawers. The price for boarders Bo pound! entrance, and all masters to be paid by their parents or guardians." EDITORIAL SCORES DOCTORS An editorial severely scores the doc tors of the city and says that New York is Infested with "quacks" that give pills without 'bought of the con sequence to the "victims." "'These men," says the newspaper, "should be made to swallow their own medicine. Perhaps they would be more merciful in its distribution." Mr. Bowles also has the first city dl y of Newark, New Jersey, pub lished" In the original and containing 30,000 names, addresses and occupa tions of residents of that city more than 100 years ago. The book is well i ired. Jamea Bowles is 89 years old and was born in county of Mead, Ireland. He learned the hatter's trade In the old country and was a member of one of the first trade unions there. He still has his union card dated 60 years ago.

The Minnewska carried part of a menagerie on her lower deck, forward. Among the animals was a fine Bengal tiger. . Members of the crew noticed that the tiger was in bad temper. Fre quently he hurled himself against the bars with a violence that made the sailors uneasy. All went well, however, until the Saturday after the liner sailed, when shortly after 5 o'clock in the morning it was discovered the tiger had es caped from his cage. The crow, who were washing down decks, hastened to points of safety for ward and aloft. Passengers, awakened by roaring from the lower decks, barri caded themselves in their berths. The animal keeper's staff was hurriedly as sembled, and armed with guns, re volvers and iron bars to recapture the beast before ha did any damage. After searching the dimly lighted lower deck for some minutes, the keep ers detected the tiger by the glare of his eyes, in a stall on the back of a sacred Indian cow. A great gash was In the cow's neck and the tiger was lapping the blood from the wound. Blank cartridges were fired in the tiger's face and it was driven back Into its cage, but before the keepers could fasten the doors the beast dashed out again, hurling the men in all direc tions. After much maneuvering by the keepers, who fired many blank car tridges, the animal was again driven back into its cage and the door made fast RATE INQUIRY TO BE RESUMED WASHINGTON, Oct. 84.—Interstate Commerop Commissioners Lane and Clarke left here today for Chicago where they will preside tomorrow at the resumption of the hearing as to mableneu of the rate advances made by .thR railroads of the western trunk lines association.
