CHOTELS ARE CROWDED I TO UTMOST CAPACITY 'M Kvery hotel in thacfty has been Jgcrowded to the utmost capacity during t he - present week and possibly thou-K'-andK or visitors to the fair have been "forced to return home sooner than they 1 intended because of lack of hotel ac Tjt ommodations. iwl This congested condition, as a matter Sof fact, hA been a common occurrence for many months.. The three or four leading hotels always have reservation ;EllNts far beyond their space limit. M One of the larirer hotels Wednesday jMreported that. out of 400 odd guests, Yjonly 12 checked out Tusday night, al though mor than 10(1 persons were waiting to secure rooms there. Other hotels made similar reports. Kvery available bed ln the smaller hotels and the boarding houses is in use, the Y. M. C. A. has been called upon to supply extra cots to take care of a number ot men who could find no room in hotels each night during the week. Tuesday night every chair in the lobby of the Y. M. O. A. was oc cupied as a free bed by some one who could not rent a room. Thousands of visitors to the fair have availed themselves of shelter offered by friends, and railroad men say that other thousands, after comfng into the. city on morning trains have probably re turned home the same day on late af ternoon or night trains, for although extra equipment has been In use on every passenger train, there has been crowding on every locall train all the week. The Y. M. C. A. asks nil private homo-owners who have extra rooms to rent to phono the location so that the rooms, may be made availshle. It is also suggested that the t'hamher of l ummerce form a committee to secure and list rooms In private homes. I t!illiiHI!lil!!l!5ISE Rubber Company 1 J , OF MEMPHIS, TENN.
