STRAY TOPICS From Little Old New York NEW YORK, Dec. 28.—"Ring out] the old, ring in tre new" is the sig-1 nal for a tremendous celebration i q New York, and the police have made arrangements to keep order in the[h crowd that will turn out on Tuesday. night to welcome the new year. No occasion, except the celebration of a presidential election, calls foi th the enthusiasm that is demonstrated on New Year's eve. The principal streets are packed with a seething mass of people, equipped with horns, bells, whistles or anything that will, make a noise, and for several hours traffic is blocked and the city is giv-| en over completely to the New Year, revelers. Of course Broadway is the center of activity, between Four teenth street and Times Square, and.th*' every restaurant and cafe is taxed to its capacity, while the fashionable hotels reserve tables far in advance at a big premium. For two hours before midnight the big crowd marches up and down Broadway, singing, shouting and dancing, and while the police are on every hand to protect the crowd against pick pockets and ruffians, still for the most part the celebration is given a free rein and the new year gets royal welcome. Marriage License Law I Beginning with the new year, every couple married in New York i must have a license, which will be the first time within the memory of | any New Yorker that licenses have been required preliminary to marriage ceremony. No longer will it be possible for the romantic cou ples who, after a monlight auto ride or a dinner party on the Rialto to decide suddenly to wake up a parson "j^jWho and get married, leaving it to the, homefolks to read the news on the I front page of the newspaper the next morning. The city clerk has remod eled his office and established the matrimonial bureau in a prominent place in the city hall. It Is going to . ______ ____ , , ,, , ,, be necessary for both bride and 1 bridegroom to appear when taking out the license, but otherwise it will be a very simple matter. This prob ably marks the .end of the famous "Little Church Around the Corner.'* A fee of $1 is to be charged for , each license, and at last year's mat-|^ rimonlal rate this will add $50,000 to the local treasury in 1908.

Shorthand for the Blind Through the efforts of the New York Association for the Blind a new field of endeavor has been opened to those whose misfortune it is not to see. The new work Is that of shorthand and typwrlting, and al-, rady there are several experts who] exceed the speed and accuracy of the girls who have their sight to help them. A shorthand machine has been invented with which to take dictation. It resembles a small type writer, but has only six keys* Each of these keys, when struck, produces a raised dot on a thin ribbon of pa per. The various combinations __________ which may be obtained by a skillful manipulation of the keys gives a wide range of symbols. After taking the dictation, the typist, by the touch system, can, as a rule, write the letters on the ma chine much faster than the girl who one of the fields that the association has opened to the blind to make taught them to be switchboard op erators, basket, broojp, mattress, bead, lace and hat-frame makers. has full use of her eyes. This Is only them self-supporting. They have contain» no Opium or other harmful drug. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Statue Placed on the Roof When William K.

The plans were drawn and were highly satisfactorj J to the millionaire, but one stipula tion entered into the bargain thac , made Mr. Vanderbilt reject the plans and seek the services of an Ameri can architect. The Frenchman would not sell his plans even to a New York multi-millionaire, a statue of the architect was placed'since in the house. Mr. Vanderbilt would! not agree to this, and the plans were sent back to the Parisian. An Amer lean artist was then sought out to do work, but no one was found that offered as satisfactory plans as the exacting and eccentric Frenchman, Consequently Mr. Vanderbilt was obliged to send for the Parisian and agree to his demands. The statue has been placed on the roof, and is in a kneeling position. Jews at a Christmas Tree Those who were detained at the immigration station on Ellis island over December 25 were given Christ actually mas trees and a celebration that j made many of them believe they had reached the fairyland that they thought awaited them in Amer ic. There were a number of Jewish people among the others, who seem ed only too glad to get the small presents, although their brethren have been longer In the country have been trying to have the Christ mas exercises eliminated from the public schools as being too sectarian in character.

Within that period of nearly half a century 10 national by par ] gatherings have beet» held here the republican and democratic ties—nearly one-half of the r g'eat quadrennial assemblages had during that time. Of the eight men elected I directly to the I.......... White House to fill the 12 presidential terms since 1S60, Lincoln, Grant, Garfield, Cleveland, Harrison and Roosevelt were named in Chicago. The two that did not come from a convention here were Hayes and McKinley. For their second terms Lincoln and Grant were nominated in other cities, but j Cleveland came from a Chicago con [vention both times that ho was elected. Seven Presidents Named There Of the three vice presidents that took up the mantles of the three "martyr" presidents—Lincoln, Gar field and McKinley—Johnson, who became president at the death of Lincoln, was nominated for vice president at the Baltimore conven tion that named the "Great Emanci pator" for his second term, while Roosevelt's vice presidential nomi nation came from the Philadelphia conclave that picked McKinley for the second term that was cut Bhort by the bullet of Czolgosz. In all, 10 men have sat In the White House since 1860, including vice prési dents who stepped into vacancies, and of these seven have been nomi nated at national assemblages held in this city. The presidential nominations will be fought out n the Coliseum—the greatest building of its kind on the continent in point of seating capa city, light, ventilation, acoustic propertes, fire protection and general comfort of appointments. The build ing made such an impression on the national leaders in 1904, on account of its accommodations, that It is small wonder that the national com mittee decided again to pitch Its tçnt by Lake Michigan. More Seats in Coliseum A seating capacity of 12,000 waq set as the minimum limit for a Con vention hall when the national com mitteemen began to Consider the question of a site for 1908. The or dinary capacity of the Coliseum Is placed at 10,000, which can be in creased 'to 12,000. without over over crowding. By the present arrange ment of galleries, however, much available space goes to waste, and the management of the building, in conjunction with citizens who se cured meeting for Chicago, is plan ning to build "hanging galleries" that will increase the accommoda tions to 15,000. Engineers have been drafting the necessary plans, and by the time the Interior of the building is remodeled the immense amount of space under the present galleries that was wasted three years ago will be utilized, giving seats enough for the delegates and for more spectators than heretofore have been able to enjoy the privilege of witnessing the deliberations of great national convention. The cost of the alterations is expected to teb $12,000 to $20,000. Ty Cobb, the champion hitter, will have charge of t^ie sporting sec tion of the Atlanta Journal this Sun day.
