Panhandler Is Nipped by Victim Champion of Park Row, New York, Whither the Best Flock, Is Forced to Yield. HE HAD A STORY THAT WON New Londoner, His Pocket Picked, Wanted Only Dollar to Get to Rich Relatives in Perth Amboy, and Got It. New York. There recently landed right out In the middle of Park row a well-dressed, smootn-taiking person who, in a few short weeks,"has done a creditable job In making that thor oughfare live up to its other name Panhandlers' Range. The first time he was sighted by the only victim to whom he is known to have repaid a v "touch" he was sprinting west in Chambers street. A few hundred feet away, he was noticed searching wild ly through his pockets and register lug simultaneously impatience, embar rassment and chagrin. "What do you think about that?" he appealed to the victim as he rushed and halted. ' "Some pocket-picking cuss has grabbed my roll !" "You might have lost It," the victim suggested. The well-dressed man was relieved vastly relieved. "Glad you men tioned that," he observed, blocking the other's progress east. "Gives me the creeps to think some guy had his hand in my pocket. At that I'm care less very careless. If I had less mon ey I might be more careful." At that the victim, not knowing he was about to be bled and thinking himself slightly outclassed financially, started on his way, only to be re called by the stranger. Tale That Brings Coin. "Are you from New Jersey?" asked the man. "I ask," he went on hur riedly at the other's negative shake of the head, "because I'm well known over there. Well-to-do family and all that sort of thing uncle way up In Democratic politics over In Jersey City another one down at Perth Am boy. My name's Doeley, and If you had known anyone over in Jersey I was going to ask you to lend me a dollar until I could get some money." The victim's hand slid toward his pocl.et. "I haven't " he began. "That's all right, old man," said Doeley that isn't quite his right name, by the way "don't let my trou bles worry you. As a matter of fact I wou't need a whole dollar. I only need one way fare to Perth Amboy. I'll be coming right back through New York to go to my own home In New London, and " Something in the victim's expres sion told him that he had named a locality that was familiar., "You know people in New London?" he asked. "A few." "Do you know ?" he began, men tioning the name of a friend of the victim. And upon being told the name was familiar, he ran through a list of New Londoners that was al most a complete directory of one part of the town. "Isn't It fortunate that I've met a fellow who knows people I know," Doeley continued af fably, and he laid his hand on the victim's shoulder. He proceeded to enumerate the eccentricities of one of the victim's New London friends and raking his memory again, spoke of the trick automobile another used to own. Doeley Lands His Dollar. The connection was made and Doe ley played for his dollar. Eventually he got it. "I'll be through New York In exact ly three hours," he called over his shoulder as he sped toward the West side ferries. "I'll look you up and we can go to supper together before I run for the Federal Express. You all-night workers are a bunch of good old scouts. S'long." It wasn't until eleven o'clock that night, an hour after Doeley said he would appear on deck with' a roll that the victim, one of the night workers who knew better than to believe ev erything he bears up and down Park Row, looked down on Broadway and confided to a friend that he was wait ing for a man from New London, a well-dressed lad with the gift of gab who had had his pocket picked while spending a day In woolly New York. "Sa-a-ay," said the friend, "this New London bird wasn't on his way to Perth Amboy to get some jack from a wealthy uncle, was he?" The victim, then just beginning to surmise the worst, nodded. For the next three days he continued to hear the stories of other victims who "fell" for the story of the stolen roll and the high family ties and Perth Amboy and everything. In the stories of ordinary panhan dlers' "suckers" there would be noth ing further to remark. In this one, however, there was a sequel. It was four o'clock on a Sunday morning and the victim mentioned In Part 1 and another night working pal were sitting In one of the most luxuri ous armchairs that could be found In several years inspection. They had just completed a general free-for-all discussion , of the ability of various panhandlers when the door was thrust violently open by two men. The new comers proceeded to the counter; one Invited the other to order anything he wanted. "Have a couple of ham-and sand wiches, Mr. Doeley," ne urged. "They'll do you good and you'll need them to hold you over until you reach New London." That Well-Remembered Voice. "Perth Amboy," the other corrected, "New London later on." The victim turned slowly. He wasn't mistaken. He couldn't forget that face nor the thick-rimmed spec tacles perched on the now that he noticed It rather pre-Volsteadlan nose. His inclination was to do some thing that would measure up to the statute that covers felonies, but wait ed until Doeley and his latest "sucker" were well on their way to the end of the meal. Then he walked over, his pal bringing up a strong rear. "Hello Doeley," he said In greeting. "How about that buck?" "You've certainly got the advantage of me," Doeley answered In a voice that had its root In the Social Reg ister. "You certainly have. I guess I've got a standard face." "No you haven't," tie ham-and eater was told. "As a matter of fact you have a rather successful face." Doeley stood on his dignity until a bit of paper upon which he had writ ten his name and an address and tele phone number In New London were produced. Then his eyes popped out at least three-quarters' of an inch. Finds Tooth of Fish That Was Big as Steamer Los Angeles, Cal. A tooth of some prehistoric fish, so large as to indicate Its owner's size was nearly that of an ocean liner, has been found among other fossils In the lime pits at Terrance, near here. About one-third of the tooth Is missing. The portion found weighs nearly two pounds, is five inches long, four Inches across the base and almost two inches thick. Many bones of prehistoric ani mals are daily being taken from the pits. Either one of them would have served to hold a hat or a coat. "Sure enough," he laughed. "You're the fellow who was kind enough to let me have a dollar the .other night." "Yes," said the victim, "and you were going to stop in with It on your way back to New London." "Right. And I haven't got started back yet. Had some business to at tend to shipping board stuff owe me a lot of money-i-you understand." The victim nodded. "I understand," he agreed. A Fast and Agile Talker. "And I've mislaid your address. Can't find it anywhere. Left it In one of my other suits, I guess." Again the victim nodded. He un derstood. "But you can slip it to me now," he suggested. "You must have been down to see your was it your uncle?" ,: . Doeley was breathing jerkily by that time, but he was able to explain that he had let his wallet tumble out of his pocket while riding across the Brook lyn bridge. "Yes, he was riding across the bridge," his "sucker" interposed. "And I've promised to let him have enough I to get to Perth Amboy." In the ten minutes that followed the first victim Informed the new stranger that Doeley had already lost his pock etbook or had his pockets picked nine times at least within ten days. "I . don't care," said the new one. "I've promised to give him $2 and as a matter of principle I'm going to keep the promise. I'm going to hand him two dollar bills right now and beat it back to Paterson, and if you want to hit him over the dome with a mustard pot or something and take one of them, it's no concern of mine." ' Doeley got the two dollars and sur rendered one to the victim who had found him out. "Take it," he said, "and well be good friends." As the successful victim and his pal walked out of' the restaurant, the pal turned. "You certainly went to a million dol lars' worth of trouble for one berry, old top," he observed. "Any one'd think you borrowed it to " "Lay off," said the victim. "I did.

The Kepubli- can protective tariff bill, estimated by Sliairman Fordney to raise around $500,000,000 in revenue unnuully, was passed by the House by a vote of 2S9 to 127 precisely the vote by which a Democratic motion for elimination of its American valuation provision was defeated. Seven Republicans voted against the measure, while the same number of Democratic supported it. Oil, hides, cotton and asphalt re mained on the free list. The Long- worth dye embargo, backed by a Re publican majority on the ways and means committee, was thrown out, 209 to 193. There was not much chance of im posing a duty on hides and cotton after the House, in committee of the whole, had defeated amendments car rying compensatory rates on their manufactured products. When the oil amendment was reached there was such a shout of noes that a roll call was not demanded. After the House had passed the bill and adjourned, Chairman Fordney and Representative Garrett of Tennessee, the acting minority leader, issued statements defending and denouncing it. Declaring the measure a "monstros ity," Mr. Garrett asserted that the Democrats were given "just five op portunities to win, and they won all five." Although no direct comparison was made with rates in the Payne-Aldrich bill, which figured so largely in the political discussion. Chairman Fordney declared the average ad valorem rates in his bill were slightly lower. "The passage of the tariff bill- by the House with a substantial major ity," Mr. Fordney said, "marks the conclusion of an important step In the return of America to the sound policy of protection. It will yield, when en acted, close to $500,000,000 annually and the average of the tariff of 1909." The 3-lG-page bill, with its multitude of amendments, goes to the Senate in the usual way, to be referred to Chair man Penrose's finance committee for tinkering. How long it will remain there nobody knows. Senator Pen rose said, however, that open hearings would be held, but that they probably would be brief. It seemed to be pretty well understood by House members that when the bill comes back from the Senate it will not be in the same form as passed. Mob Deports Japs. Turlock, Calif. An investigation of the deportation of a number of Japa nese fruit pickers and melon field workers s from the Turlock district is being made by Sheriff R. L. Dallas and District Attorney W. J. Brown of Stanislaus county. Eighty-eight male Japanese workers were forced to leave the district, according to fig ures issued by the police. Stanislaus county officials blamed the trouble on Industrial Workers of the World, who, they charge, planned the deportation when fruit workers' wages were cut approximately 15 per cent. Boy May See Sunday Baseball. Newark, N. J. The right of a 4-year-old boy to attend Sunday baseball games despite his mother's objection, has been upheld.

CAVE DWELLERS ARE OUSTED Berlin Police Disperse Dr. Goldberg's Followers, Who Had Discarded Their Clothing. Berlin. The colony of cave dwell ers of Berlin, which took the back to the land doctrine so literally that scores of men, women, boys and glrU dug caves for themselves In the banks Of the Spree just out of Berlin and discarded all modern wearing apparel, has been dispersed by the police. The colony's leader. Dr. Heinrich Goldberg, argued before a magistrate that the experiment was a simple solution of the housing and cost of living prob lems. The cave dwellers began by discard ing hats and shoes, but soon decided to do away with clothing altogether, and In this fashion disported themselves in the waters of the Spree or sat about their cave doors munching black bread and sausages, apparently oblivi ous to the crowds of sightseers which began to frequent the vicinity. Dr. Goldberg from his abode in the "Cave of Zarathústra" issued circulars discussing the NIetzschean philosophy, anarchy, communism, the faults of the present civilization, and asking the rent weary and the work worn to "watch this colony grow." Somebody spoiled the experiment by complaining that the brotherhood was having a deleterious effect upon pub lic morals and calling attention to the doctor's career, which was said ta have included efforts to reform Ecg landj Russia and Poland A $400,000 building, constructed al most entirely of Colorado materials, is nearing completion on the University of Colorado campus at Boulder and will be occupied early in September.
