5 HANGING TO JIN6EKB0WLS Rome Miller Finds Eastern Hotel Men Contrary to His Campaign. MAKING STEADY PROGRESS In Spite of Opposition from Mans the Crusade la Gathering Im petus nml More Are I'nll Insjr In Utie Kverr Day. Rome Miller, who has been maklnK rrrat strides toward the elimination oi the old-fashioned flnccr bowl In cafe; and dlnln? cars. Is having troubles these days with the eastern hotel managers who are unwilling to abandon tho -lime-honored custom, principally because II was suggested by Mr. Miller, who la a western man. The east always has been backward about accepting western Ideas until the west has so educated the public tbat It was Impossible to forego the change any longer. Such Is the case with Mr. Miller and his finger bowl crusade, but Mr. Miller rather cherishes tho east ern opposition and Is becoming more en thusiastic as a result. Several hotel men of the larger cities, who first advocated the elimination of the finger bow'l, have recently manifested what Mr. Mll'or calls a "yellow streak" and have changed their minds about the sanitation of the finger bowl. Most of the big hotels have In their stock a large number of Imported brass finger bowls and they are unwilling to spend the money to secure sanitary bowls, that could be destroyed after use or they are unwilling to destroy the brass bowls be cause they are ornamental nnd convey an Impression of cxcollent cuisine. Mr. Miller 1b not advocutlng the entire elimination of the finger bowl, but he docs not jvlsh the Indiscriminate and promiscuous use of tho bowl. At hit Omaha hotels he merely serves flngei bowls with fru.lt and upon request. Until paper manufacturers can design a sani tary bowl that may be destroyed aftet use and also be set In some kind of nn ornamental silver holder that would ndd attractiveness to the table. Mr. Miller believes It expedient to only furnish the ordinary finger bowls when requested. Westerner Adopt IMnn. Many of the hotels in the west have adopted Mr, Miller's policy of serving finger bowls only on request, while two great railroad systems, the New York Central lines and the Northern Pacific have adopted the same policy in their 'dining-cars and at the company hotels. Mr. Miller spends a lot of his time cor responding with, hotel managers all over the country in his crusade against the finger bowl. He has succeeded In secur ing editorials in nearly alt the hotel magaxlnes with regard to it and ho has secured the consent of Elbert Hubbard to make some comment In hla magazine. The campaign Is attracting Interest be cause all the hotels in the middle west are favorable to tho movement- and H Is only a question of time before eastern hotels will adopt sanitary finger bowls. The campaign has been in effect but little over a month and already Mr. Miller has received hundreds of communications ex tolling his campaign and stepping In line. Mr. Miller expects that as soon as the public realizes that finger bowls are conducive to disease germs the hotels and cafes -will be demanded to Install sanitary finger bowls, and that Is what his object is In the end.
