Page Eleven V Stray Topics from I Want You to Know "A J AX" Little Old New York DAILY ABIZONA SILVER BELT ,1 y NEW YORK, May 14. Nothing could give a dearer indication of New York's wonderful progress and development nml of the gigantic growth of ita real estate value, particularly in the down town business district than the fnet that the twenty-story Gillondor build ing, on the northwest corner of Wail and Nassau Btreets, which was erected only twelve years ago and was for spmo time tho highest office building in this city, i9 now being demolished to make room for a thirty-two story building. This is tho first timo that such a high class oflico building, representing the best typo of modorn fireproof construc tion is torn down to make room for n higher and more claborato structure. The Bankers' Trust company, which will occupy tho new building, recently pur chased tho Oillcndor building lot, which is only 25 by 74 feet, for $1,250,000. It was considered that tho building, now in courso of demolition, was not high enough to pay an adequate interest up on tho investment and the Bankers' Trust company did not hesitato in de ciding to have tho old building, which had cost $300,000, torn down and to erect a now building whichtwill cost in tho neighborhood of $1,000,Q00. Tho contractor who lifts undertaken tho task of tearing down tho big stcol sky scraper, which had a hoighf of 306 feet, and rcmovo every bit of the material -within thirty-five days, will "receive $50,000 for tho job. Ho has 230 men at work at present, who work in two shifts, one doing tho demolishing during tho day, the othor removing tho dobris dur ing tho night. Society circles of this city aro great ly exercised over the pnzzltng question whether or not Miss Ethel Crokor, daughter of Richard Cr'oker, the former Tammany leader, marlrcd John J. Breen, n groom in Durland's Hiding academy. Both Miss Grokcr and Breen deny be ing marircd, but tho records of Samuel Engler, a justice of tho peace in Hobo ken, N. J,, show that tho marriage cere mony -was performed 'by fho justico on tho af torrioon of April 38 'of this year. Mr. Engler has mado tho positive state ment that the young woman who be came Breen 's wifo was actually tho daughter of tho former Tammany chlof. Miss Croker and the other members of the Oroker famijy havo mado no state ment Tjeyond donying fho fact 'of tho marriage and socioty is more than over puzzled. The bakers in tho largo bakeries, hotels and restaurants of this city havo gone on a strike again and bread nnd Tolls -were scarce for -a short timo. This is one of their oft-ropeated periodical attempts to force their employors to accept tho "closed shop" principle All previous attempts havo failod and it is generally believed that tho present at tempt will result in tho samo mnnnor. Mrs. O. II. P. Belmont, the socioty woman -who is finding amusement in playing the part of a woman's suffrage leader, is evidently 'tu'king herself seri ously. Tho other day sho was invited to "preside 'over a press club meeting of suffragists and nnti-suffracists but sho declined the honor in, a letter which has lumisned considerable amusement to the anti-suffragists. With n lack of tact and judgment rather surprising in a society woman supppsed to b.o well bred, sho explained in her letter 'that she de clined the honor of presiding at the meeting, becauso it ha always been her policy in mo to endeavor to meet only lier equals or superiors.'" Sho stated that sho considered all anti-suffragists "her "inferiors" and although sho would "bo willing to introduco a "Hottentot -woman to an audienco, sho utterly refused to countenanco "ignorance" and mental inferiortiy by introducing an anti-suffragist. Tho suffragettes, of 'courso, -applaud tho sentiment expressed in "Mrs. Belmont's letter, but tho -rational -ma-. jority of tho suffrage .advocates deploro tho writer's lack of tact and fear that such blundering tolcranco will hurt their causo. ' . Surely, it must take an army of hens to supplv New York City with eggs. During the month of April 1,800,000 cases of eggs, each containing thirty dozen, were received in tho city. This makes a total of G 18,000,000 eggs for a singlo month. If all the eggs brought to tho New York market were used for local consumption, it would mean that every ihan, woman ad child in New York City consumed about five eggs a day. But, there are many thousands of famines who cannot afford tb buy eggs at tho present high prices oftencr than onco n week or even once a month, it would follow (hat there must be a great many people in this city who con sume moro thnn their pro rata share of hen fruit. This is undoubtedly true, but it must be taken into consideration that a considerable part of tho eggs received in Now York go from hero to other markets nnd aro not consumed in the city. V Ever since the board of health issued tho order prohibiting the operation of smoking automobiles in any New York street after July 1, hundreds of sugges tions have been sent to the board how best to stop the smoko nuisance. One correspondent with a liberal shnro of humor suggested to compel all makers and owners of automobiles so to arrange tho exhaust pipes of their cars that the bmoko and stench ojectod from the pipes should Ie blown righ't Into the luces of tho occupants of tho car. 'Iho plan seems feasible ana wonld undoubtedly put a prompt stop to tho smok nuis- According to an announcement just made there is said to be ?ome prospect that tho public library buildingTri Fifth avonuo and Forty-second stswet, New York 's" big whito elephant, mar bo com pleted some timo early next year. Tho building of tho library which was to cost $2,500,000 was authorized by tho legislature in 1897 and tho work was begun in November of that year. Since then nearly thirteen years havo elapsed and tho building, which will cost moro than $10,000,000, is 'not yot completed. Tho now library building is a fine ex ample, of tho lax and unbusinesslike manner in which public work is oxecut-1 ed. stupid regulations, 'endless otlicial red tnpe, occasional ladk of funds and labor troubles wcro tho principal causes oi delay'. But, after all, although the building is an architectural monster and cost a largo sum of money, tho citizens aro Inclined to bo rather proud, not of the preposterous architecture of tho building, but of the fact that there has been not even a suspicion of grafting in tho expenditure of fho ten millions.

City "Lady in Black" Again on Scene Revelations of Sir Robert Anderson Revive Tale of Mystery DUBLIN, .May 14. Now that the "revelations" of Sir Robert Ander son, former official of tho "British Home office, aro reviving bitter feelings, men with longe memories are recalling tie story of the "Lady in Black." She was so called becauso sho always woro a dark dress and she was employed by Anderson twenty-six years ago to spy on the Nationalists with ft view to connecting the Parnclites with the dy namitards. She considerably overdid her part, and somo newspaper men hatched a plot to supply her with all the sensations sho craved for. James O'Connor, assisitant editor of "Unitea 'Ireland, V Nationalists organ, run by William O'Brien, -got in touch with her and introduced one or two "conspirators" to her. njnder her charms they confessed themselves to bo most tUcsperato fellows and pledging hor to secrecy, thoy told her wonderful plans of gore and murder ifbout to tako place.
