Guests Who Try Mineral Cure
Must Pay Assessment
The annual report of the chamber of
commerce for Wiesbaden states that
S3 hotels and restaurants there failed
last y*>ar. Among these were some of
the largest and most modern hotel*,
\u2666quipped in magnificent style. The
sharp rompetition existing among
these establishments, the heavily In
creased cost in maintaining them and
the gen«ral unfavorable eccfnomle con
ditions are given as the chief causes of
these failures.
The guests, who come for a cure by
means of the well known mineral
waters, have not increased in number,
' nor has their expenditure of money
/counterbalanced the increased number
of hotels and restaurants and the en
\ hanced' costs In taxes, food and mate
rial, wages, etc. The city having made
heavy outlays for public improvements,
and projecting additional ones, to at
- tract foreign visitors, has ordered a
general tax according to which even
tourists who do not use the waters
must now pay if they extend their
stay beyond two days.
Baden Baden has recently adopted a
similar ordinance for taxing tourists.
This innovation is to procure addi
tional revenue to meet the Increasing
municipal needs.

Customs Inspectors of Merry
England Occupied Danger
ous Positions
Of the many types identified with a
picturesque yet lawless past there were
none whose duties were more typical
of the spirit of the time than the tides
men. When the annual customs re
turns are presented to an expectant
nation, few give a thought to the men
who bore the heat and burden of the
day at a time when the gathering in
of customs was a hazardous task. True,
the tidesman has been deposed by a
more imposing official, who faces none
of his dangers, but the tidesman
stands for the rolHcklng. roaring days,
when smugglers held sway and to put
out to sea was a great adventure.
The tidesmen consisted of two
classes, "preferable" and "extraor
dinary." They were stationed at the
various ports, and their duties con
sisted In boarding foreign vessels and
staying aboard to keep watch until
these vessels were cleared. The "pre
ferable" men were In the nature of
permanent officials, and were stationed
at the more important points, such as
Gravesend and the custom house It
self, while the "extraordinary" were
engaged from day *to day, and were
employed on the more laborious and
hazardous tasks, says the London
A report from the collector and con
troller'ln Scotland, referring to the
people of Montrose, contains the fol
lowing significant passages: "Our
tidesmen are so terrified to go on duty
at that place for the insults given them
by the inhabitants that unless some
troops be quartered in that town there
is no preventing their continued prac
tice of smuggling at the very shore."
That this practice was very popular is
evident from the records of the. time.
In fact, smuggling was one of the chief
industries of the people who dwelt
round the coast. •
The south coast was especially noted
for this illicit trade, and the smugglers
of Kent and Sussex were the most for
midable in the country. The fame of
the Hawkhurst gang "was known from
Land's End to John o' Groats. One of
their leaders, Arthur Grey, wae
a "sea cock" of some consequence, and
reputed to be worth many thousands
of pounds. iHe built a huge warehouse
on Seacox Heath in Kent, where he was
wont to store smuggled goods, un
troubled by the revenue authorities.
The impunity with which the smug
glers were allowed to carj-y on their
illicit trade is explained by the fact
that the magistrates around the coast
were personally interested in the trade.
Moreover, the clerk and sexton of the
village church lent their aid. Many a
vault or vestry were utilized for stor
ing smuggled goods. Nor were many
of the parsons Inclined to be inquisi
tive when they received a generous
supply of excellent spirits and a large
quantity of full flavored tobacco.
There Is a story of a south country
parson •who was dellvering,an eloquent
discourse one Sunday morning when
word arrived that a foreign vessel had
been wrecked on the shore. Engaging
the attention of his congregation, he
advanced toward the door. Then, with
the exclamation. "Xow, we all start
fair," he picked up his gown and made
a bolt for the wreck, the whole congre
gation at his heels.
Youngsters Liable to Scratch
Mirrors With Gems
Andrew Carnegie, at one of >his
famous dinners in New York, talked
about the prodigal and ostentatious ex
penditure of a certain type of New York
"He takes a ' Velasquez," said Car
negie, "and cuts It into three strips, so
that it will go on a screen. Paul
Bourfcet told the world about that- And
I heard the other day another thing
about him. 1
"A gentleman was being shown over
the $3,000,000 palace of one of. these
millionaires. The gentleman stopped
before an enormous mirror and said:
'"What a large and perfect glass!
Pity It's scratched.* . . :
"It Is rather a pity,' said the mil
lionaire, carelessly, and, turning to his
major domo. he said: 'Don't let the chil
dren have any more diamonds to play
with, Maurice.'"

Colt Is Favored at SO to 30 Over
Native Belle, His Former
Conqueror \' \u25a0 \_
[Special Dispatch to The Call] ,
LEXINGTON, Ky.. Oct. 3.— A year
a^o in the 2 year old division of the
Kentucky Futurity Native Belle was
an overwhelming favorite and she put
the world'g record for trotters -of the
same age at 2:07%. Among the de
feated ones that .day was Colorado,
which at the end of the race divided
second and third monies with Eva Bel
lini. -:\u25a0:;•. :..=>v \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 . .- .: •
Tomorrow, in the 3yesf old Futurity,
Colorado, already world's champion for
his age, will start at odds of- 50 to 30
over the field, and Native Belle, his
whilom conqueror, will bring '$10 In
pools of $80, selling for.no more than
Emily Ellen or Grace, -rt'hich' last year
were unheard of. ' .- , V. . i-IL-^-'A-'is
The above named, with / Sue D and
Lula Arion, will constitute'the field in
the $21,000 stake to be/decided tomor

orado will be defeated. '
Fourteen were, eligible to start, but
what the critics have said showed the
owners of the other colts that their
nags had no chance to get into the
money and only the tested ones will
appear. Malcolm Forbes, which . 10
days ago was thought to have a
chance to win, has trained off and -was
scratched with the others of less re
pute. !
There is the usual talk that Colo
rado will be beaten. Some figure that
Sue D can carry him so fast to the half
mile pole that Native Belle will heat
him home, but the betting tonight did
not show ahat these theorists had any
The pool selling was ver ylight, in
part due to the fact ahat the commis
sion rates were raised from 3 to 5 per
cent, which chilled a good many of the
big speculators.
When the Futurity was reached there
were few responses to the mellifluent
utterances of Silver Bill Riley, who ex
patiated eloquently on the merits of
each entrant, but in vain. Colorado
would bring $50, Native Belle and
Grace $10 each and the field $10. The
sharpshooters were playing Grace on
the theory that If anything should hap
pen to Colorado she was the best of the
otheYs, her race at Columbus last week
showing. the filly to be up to a mile in
2:08 or better.
In the Tennessee, a pacing purse for
the 2:06 class and worth $3,000, there
was another case of apathy on the
part of the bettors. The Cleveland
mare, Evelyn W, which won last week
in 2:02 W. looked so good that she
brought $50 to $20 for Ess H. Kay,
which has a record .of 2:02% and will
be driven tomorrow for the first time
by Geers; J2O for Earl Jr., which took
a record of 2:03*4 last Thursday at
Columbus, and $15 for TV A, which
won a fast race at the same meeting.
The other starters will be Bland S and
Baron TVhips, .but nobody gives them
a chance.

French Must Soon Use Negroes
in New Caledonia
In submitting: the following Infor
mation, concerning: the decreasing pop
ulation of the French island colony of
New Caledonia Vice Consul General
Henry D. Baker of Sydney, Australia,
reports that It will probably be neces
sary within a few years to introduce
colored labor to take the place of the
liberated convicts, who are fast dylny
In last December the total number
of convicts and ,ex-convlcts in New
Caledonia was 7,362, but of these the
whereabouts of -500 were unknown;
they had either escaped to Australia
or New Guinea or died in the bush. Of
the liberated convicts 4,783 were over
40 years of .ase and only 459 were
younger, consequently in JO years the
quantity of convict labor now .avail
able will have been .-_ diminished . by
half, 'and in 30 years will have almost
disappeared. . An \ official report. Issued
oh this subject, states:
"In a country such as New Caledonia;
where the 'lndustries are 'essentially
\u25a0mining and agriculture, the labor prob
lem is one of the most important. It
therefore remains to be seen whether
the white (free) population, at •> Its
present rate of Increase, will be large
enough to. take the place eventually
of the convict labor, and then progress
fast enough to keep, pace with the de
mands, that will be made when . the
mineral riches of the Island begin to
be fully exploited."
The total white population In 1906,
when a general. census, was taken,. -was
19,570,. 0f whom 13.80S were males and
5,762 females, or 385 females for 1,000
males. ;' The abnormal ' Vpreporideranca
was due to the fact that of 7,914 con
victs then in the colony - only 244. wera
women; still: there .was a-.wide margin
even in the. free population, for of 11,
656 persons .6,188 were male and 5,518
were female, or- 892 -women' to 1,000
men. During the three years,: 1906
1909. the marriages numbered. 4.7 per
thousand,;: as; compared with : 7.5 ,\ in
France. The number of- births during
the same period : averaged 444, whilst
the ,deaths averaged 520. A^r pointed
out before, the , preeence of a large
convict element had/to' be taken : Into
consideration in looking at;the-flg
ures: v -Nevertheless"there has,; been* a"

Grand Prize Race to Be
Held as Scheduled
NEW YORK, Oct. 3.— The grand
prize race for automobiles will be
held as scheduled, over the. Vanderbilt
cup course on. Long island Saturday.
October 15. A; decision not to cancel
the permit was reached tonight by
the board of supervisors of Nassau
county, Long island,' a*f ter conference
with *"W. K. : Vanderbilt Jr. and other
representatives of the Motor Cups
holding company. .\u25a0••'*; , -
To eliminate the crush of automo
biles at daybreak and earlier the race
will start at 10 o'clock in the morn
ing instead of at 6. the -time at which
the Vanderbilt contestants were sent
away. Also there will be more thor
ough policing of the course.
It was the general opinion that in
view of an indemnity bond now held
by the county, given by the Motor
Cups 'holding company, several suits
might result fro mcancelling the per
mit. \u25a0 "\u25a0 \u25a0 .

- Not since the afternoon that Blue
beard,' the gigantic elk. of the Bronx
zoo," tried to kill his fourth wife,- that
he might bask unhindered in the light
of another's glances, have the social
circles of the park been so scandalized
as - yesterday. Even the sloth was
stirred, says the New York World. And
of course it "was all the woman's
fault." . - • -
The principals in the latest disgrace
ful .situation are Khartoum, the little
Indian elephant and Alice, formerly of
Luna park. Sultana, Khartoum's spouse,
was a witness to his shameful aban
donment of his home and her, but she
was too proud to utter a word of re
proach. Only a select few suspected
Khartoum's attachment for Alice.
Though the ; elephants have- occupied
adjoining pens, a big steel barred fence
separated Alice :. from .the family she
has disrupted. Khartoum seemed, to
take only a fatherly interest in her at
first, but she, it seems, had more than
a, Platonic affection for old Khartoum.
Alice just, couldn't "make her "eyes
behave" when she glanced at him. He
seemed to ignore her^at first," but by
and by it was -seen he was making
"goo goo" eyes; too. Sultana re
proved the old sinner once or twice,
but she saw that he- was infatuated,
and so took refuge in silence. Khar
toum made :no effort to disguise his
feelings to his wife. Alice, the vam
ptre, gloated over her victory and kept
tantalizing her admirer with v her ca
ressing glances. ;
The crash came; yesterday afternoon.
Khartoum sneaked" away from his
wife's side and while no'one.was look
ing but Sultana, he skillfully, unhooked
the catch of the gate In the fence be.
tween his cage and Alice's. ; She met
him halfway and twined her. trunk
around his, the while,looking';triumph
antly at Sultana, who regarded -the
home wrecker, defiantly for, a moment,
then turned away, in silent contempt.
The rattle of the steel -gate which
Khartoum, bad swung open violently
when flying to his tryst was heard by
"Dick" Richards, the : elephant keeper.
He acolded Alice, but she Ignored him
for the first time gln he> lif e. Then
Dick with, soft words" tried to persuade
the wife deserter to return to Jiliown
fireside, but It- was futile. So Richards
got the steel hook and "tickled Khar
toum's "ears-— that is, he Jammed the
hook into them. - But* it was useless.
Khartoum was there to stay, and he
had his way, despite the efforts of ;sev;
eral keepers armed- with; sharp, prodSi
He finally got so ugly.; that it was
thought well to leave him alone. ,: . .;.
Khartoum has a small cash register^
on which, he rings up every cent given
to him." He , has .always .turned over
each day's | receipts §to $ Sultana. < But
yesterday, after he , went .to Alice's side;
he gave only: every second- copper, to
his wife, Alice .receiving : the others.
This was no doubt his idea of . paying
alimony, and is! significant of his inten
tion not to return' home. . •

C. C. Eichelberger, Representa*
tive of Firestone Tire Branch,
Is Back From Factory
.C C. Eichelberger, Modesto, Cal.,
manager Qf the Firestone tire and
rubber company, has returned from
the annual conference at the factory
at Akron, O. In speaking of the trip
Eichelberger said: . .
"We of the west move fast, but in
the automobile line it is wonderful
the pace they are setting in the east.
"Take the conditions in New York
alone. There they are. using 2,500 mo
tor trucks and delivery wagons; 1,500
of them are gasoline vehicles and the
other 1,000 are electric. This is an
increase of 100 per cent over last year.
The increase last year, which was 65
per cent over 1908. was thought to be
wonderful, but this year has gone
away beyond expectations.' \u25a0 -
"The indications for the coming- year
are such that the tire manufacturers
are \u25a0 making plans, to handle even a
larger increase. There -are firms in
New York that^rent out wagons for
$13 a clay." : ' " ' : " \u25a0"' ~"~ ;
Another piece of news that Eichel
berger brought back with him was
that the fire department in New York
in making their specifications- for bids
on tires require. that all tires must be
made according to the Firestone com
pound; . .. ' '
The Firestone company the last year
has had a 33 per cent increase in busi
ness over any other year that it has
;been"in existence. . | •
The company . is now building a
$1,000,000 factory that will turn, out
three. times as many tires as the'pres
ent plant.. '
Eichelberger also said that H. S.
Firestone, the president of the . cpm
pany, would shortly pay s the coast a
