.r-ifrry TUESDAY, MAY 3, 1910 THE DEMOCRATIC BANNER PAGE THrtEB "vsrpfs ll k MOURN The Loss Of Merit Twain Do New York People Had Won Admiration Of Iiis Felioivmen A Movement Started To Erect A Monument To Tin) American Indian Now Almost Extinct Stray Topics From Little Old New York New York, Apill 30 All Now York mourns the' loss of Mark Twain, the great American humorist, who tiled peacefully the other day at his sum mer homo In Connecticut. After a long and active llfo the Nestor of American humorists wag called away, leaving a vacancy that can never he filled. Ho won the admiration and love of his fclldwmen not merely as a writer of humorous yarns and as a brilliant after-dinner speaker, hut by his kindness, frankness and other lov able characteristics. He did not con tribute millions to universities and churches, did not found hundreds of libraries to perpetuate his name, but it is safe to say that his memory will live when the names of the men try ing to buy fame with their ill-gotten millions will long be forgotten. Quito recently a movement has been started for the erection of a suit able monument1 to the race of the American Indian, rapidly becoming extinct. There is a certain grim hu mor In the proposition which will ap peal to those who have studied the history of tho United States. It shows a commendable amount of decency In tho promoters of tho monument plan that they wish to erect a hand some monument upon tho grave of tho victim of American civilization. Tho poor red man was driven from his land, cheated, defrauded and, event ually, massacred, either Dy tho su perior armed force of tho white men or by tho physical and moral cor ruption inflicted upon them by tho cunning and unscrupulous invaders. Is it not eminently propor, therefore, now that tho work of "civilization" is completed, to mark tho gravo of tho red man's race with an elaborate tombstone? Tho taking of tho United States Census in a city of tho size and pe culiar mixture of races in its popu lation which Now York can boast of Is not an easy task and it speaks well for tho ability of tho officials In charge of tho work that tho task was completed with comparatively little difficulty and friction." Tho experlenco of tho enumerators, not only In tho tenement districts of tho East sido with their polyglot foreign population, but even in tho aristrocratic precincts along Fifth Avenue and Riverside, Drive, would fill several good sized volumes. As a rulo tho enumerators mot with little difficulty. Where there was trouble it usually arose from tho fact that tho enumerators had to deal with women who consid ered tho Inqulsltlveness of tho officials an lmportlnenco 'and shut tho door In their face. In somo cases the enum erators woro unnecessarily brusque or rudo and fully deserved a rebuke. But, thoso cases were comparatively rare and tho work progressed smooth ly. The disclosures concerning tho ca reer of tho bogus Count d'Aulby do Gatlgny, now on trial in Paris for swindling wealthy patrons of art by means of fraudulent "masterpieces," arc rather humiliating for tho scores of American millionaires who havo boon filling their homes and galleries with fako rtembrandts, Itubens, Vel asquez, Galnsborougtis, etc., paying enormous prices for cheap copies or worso. Artists and connoisseurs on tho Continent havo long been awaro of tho fact that a cliquo of unscrupu lous swindlers, principally located In Paris, made largo fortunes out of tho utter ignorance, stupidity and vanity of rich Americans. In fact nearly all Europe know of it, only tho Ameri can victims remained in blissful Ig norance. It Is a well authenticated fact that there aro moro alleged Rombraudts and Velasquez' in tho possession of American collectors thau woro over painted by the two masters. In view of tho fact that practically every single canvas paint ed by those two artists Is known and accounted for, tho gullibility of the American collectors is really aslound lng and can only bo accounted for by their gross Ignorance on matters of art. Now York is tho principal mar ket for fako "Musters" In tills coun try nnd sotno of those "fako special ists" aro doing a lucrative buslnosJ, It has been known for some time tliht tho oxcluslvo guild of automobile owners enjoyed rights and privileges in tho courts and tribunals of Greater Now York, which aro denied to the common "auto-less" held. Now, how over It has been established by Ju dicial decision that chauffeurs, as, the high priests of tho select guild are sacred and must ho treated with pi op or respect by tho canaille. A young man was arrested the other day and fined ten dollars, becauso ho had jok ingly and irreverently spoken to a chauffeur. Tho young man, being lu pa-ticularly good humor, nsked the chauffeur whether ho was married. When tho chauffeur answered In tho nfflrmatlvo, tho young man said to him, "Why, then, aro you not at home with your wife?" Tho chauffeur had him promptly arrested and tho mag istrate fined tho prisoner ton dollars. Mayor Gaynor, whoso election last fall caused somo misgivings In the minds of the better class of citizens has given them an ngreeablo surprise. In tho few months of his administra tion ho has won for himself an on vlablo record and almost every week ho adds further proofs of his ability and efficiency. Ho has already ac complished a great deal In tho way of stopping graft and oxtravaganco in tho expenditure of public funds and is still continuing tho good work. The other day ho put his foot upon the proposition to provldo and maintain an automobile for tho Coroner of Richmond borough. In his letter, squelching tho little scheme, Mayor Gaynor proved himself somewhat of a humorist, by stating that "walking Is good In the Borough of Richmond," as ho knew from his own experience. o Some persons aro born unluckyi and one of these unfortunate is Jako Mar melstcln, tho owner of a little candy store in the Jewish district of the East side. Two years ago he was to mar ry his beloved Rosle. Ho obtained a marriage license, but owing to an un expected death in Roslo's family the wedding had to bo postponed. Jako carefully put away th6 llcenso for fu ture use. Tho other day the postponed marriage was to tako place and sev eral hundred guests were assembled to witness the ceremony and tako part In the feast to follow, when the discovery was mado that by tho mis take of tho llcenso clerk Jako had been given the wrong license. TheVo Was great consternation and Jako started out to have the mistake cor rected. The license clerk was in bed when Jako pounded on his door. Ho positively refused to make a night trip to tho City Hall to make out an other llcenso and nothing remained but to postpono tho wedding onco more.

DEN AL Made By David Westwater In Columbus Courts To Suit Of James Westwater For Accounting Involving Stock In Vernon Bridge Co. Mt. (Columbus Journal) Making n complete denial of tho charges of mlsropresntatlon and con version contained In tho suit of his hrothor, In which the return of $90, 000 worth of stock of the Mt. Vernon Brldgo Company, alleged to have been unlawfully appropriated, was asked, and an accounting of $745,199.46, al leged to havo been collected as trus tee for tho firms of James Westwater & Co. and Westwater and Casey from the city of Columbus, for building the Columbus filtration plant, and from tho library trustees for building the public library, was sought, David Westwater today filed in common pleas court an answer and cross-petition to tho suit of James Westwater. Ho alleges that tho stock of tho Mt. Vernon Bridge Company, of which James Westwater Is president, was transferred to him by his broth er to secure him for large sums of money, $190,000 in all, advanced to pay off debts of his brother's compan ies. Answering tho allegation that ho had sold $0,"i 000 worth of bridge com pany stock 'for $52,000, without his brother's consent, nnd had retained the money, he attaches an exhibit in tho fonn of an affidavit signed by James Israel and I. M. Wolverton, to whom the sale was mado, showing that James Westwater, complainant, personally conducted tho negotiations. It is further averrea that a part of tho porceeds went to pay off piesslng debts in California, for James West water. Tho latter is alleged to have turned over the stock In person and to have received tho drafts in pay ment. It is denied In the answer that Dav id Westwater has over refused to ac count with James Westwater in full. Tho answering petitioner affirms him self to he a heavy creditor by reason of tho money advanced to carry on tho business of Ills brother's compan ies, ami declares he lias beon only partly reimbursed for money which he expended. The books and accounts of the two are now in the possession of his orother. He denies alleged unwar ranted tenure of real estato trans forred to him by bin brother. Moliey borrowed on this real estate, he says, only partly reimbursed him for his own money expended. He further says that through a mistake In the deed of assignment by which he assumed the dobts of his brother's firms it was made to appear that ho assumed only tho debts of James Westwater individually, while really assuming debts of the compan ies. He therefore prays that the er ror may bo corrected. Judgment for the amount claimed and a decre for the sale of the stock lu question In satisfaction are abked. Wilson & West are his attorneys.
