New York, Sept. 13. After Cotiev
Island had been ruunlng wido opnn
all siunmer, wlth crimc, imuiorallty
and gatubling iu full swing and, ap
parently uuder the protection of the
polici', the acting Mayor ot New York,

ered the lld clampcd down good and

order canie wheu the seasoti at Coney
is practleally closed, lt has caused
some aniuseiucnt aiuong the citizens.
Condltlons tn Coney Island have al
waya boen fairly ibad, conslderably
more ao thau at other beach rcsortu
along the Atlantic coast, hut if the
stntemeuts of numerous lnvestigators
and a large nuinber of vlctinis eau be
credited, the statu of things durlng
the sununcr Just ended, was worse
tllan ever bcfore. There were more
dlvos, more crooksaud thuga and more
lewd women in Coney this sununrr
than ever liefore and it soms that all
of tbeiu did a thriving buslness. All
through (he summer complalnts trom
vlctinis who bad been robbed at
Coney camo pouring ln at polico head

abatement. Not until after the season
was closed dlil the anthorities "high
er up'' discover that the lid was wlde
open and that It was necessary to put
a stop to the actlvity of the crlnilnal
element in that popular resort. Act
ing Mayor ailtchell did not order the
polico to make an Investigation, bnt
sent out n nuinber of clty employes
for that purpose. The result was a
thorough shaku-up in the polico do

The closlng ot the 4epots establtsh
rd by Nathan Straus in this city, for
the salo and distribution of pasteur
ized inilk for the use of infants ls a
great blow to thotisands of poor fam
illes in the ovorcrowded teiiement
dlstrlets of Mnnhattan and Brooklyn.
When theso mllk depots were estab
lished a few years ago. Mr. Straus was
acclaimed as a bonefactor of th
loor, espcclally of .the bables of the
poor. The mllk was sold at, a nominal
prico and was given away to thoso
who had not the muans to pay for it.
The mllk trust and all assertlons to
the contrary notwlthstandlng, there is
really nuch a trust kIIiI not approve
of Miv-Strnus'a cliarily, because it eii
abled the poor to obtaln good mllk Tor
