A NOTH EH CURIOSITY GOING.
The announcement of the sale
of “Yo Olde London Streete” on
Broadway means, in all probabil
ity, that New York is to loose an
other landmark which, though not
mi antiquity, was. at least an in
teresting spectacle. The. parcel
of land went for $1,000,000. Some
years ago some clever investor hit
upon the scheme of reproducing,
for the edification of Metropolitan
and transients, one of the famous
old London streets, which* should
| be true in detail to the genuine
article. This design he carried
into effect with more or less suc
cess, artistically, but with sad
sad results from a pecuniary stand
point. But nevertheless, for some
time persons walking along Broad
way saw the gray walls and the
embattled tops of the structure,
and entering for a small fee, be
held a very acceptable reproduc
tion of the booths and other street
sights of London. It prospered
for a while, but when the thing
palled, the building began a career
which has steadily been downward
Today, none so poor to do it rev

probably to be replaced by a
structure more in keeping with its
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT AS A
The dispassionate letter which
Mayor Low sent to the Parkhurst
Society, which was the more cred
itable considering the provocation
recalls to many the crusade of
President Roosevelt when he was
at the head of the police cnmmig
mission and undertook to enforce
(Ik* saloon law. Of course the
opposition he excited merely caus
ed him to set his mouth a little
firmer and proceed the more ener
getically. And with him, action
generally brought results. But
with all his vigor, his careful at
tention to the police and his de
termination to make a record,
New York experienced only three
absolutely dry Sundays during his
term. And in distracting the re
tlie minds of the police from the
other misdemeanors and crimes,
Ik* only threw open the gate to
violations of every other law hut
the excise law. New York was dry
hut she paid dearly for it. And
now the Mayor does not mean to
repeat the error, hut to enforce all
laws equally, hoping thereby to
give an evener all around.
the era of consolidations.
When, nowadays, one hears of a
vast combination of capital to
jgaiu a certain object, lie glances
in a cursory way at the amount of
i money involved and if it does not
come up to hundreds of millions,
In* concludes that it is some minor
j matter. So does familiarity breed
i contempt. Yet it is worth while
jto observe that these great trusts

1 eoiuformity with some deep un
derlying principle which has not

that the snow ball in its progress

attains a huge bulk, but does not
everyone know the tendency, when
the ball has become immense, of
bits to tly from the main body.
This has been exemplified time
and again in trusts which have
sought to create a monopoly, many
instances of failure pointing all
the same way.

There is a valuable collection of
autographs, Mr. Burton having
succeeded in getting the signature
of every president from Washing

Napoleon, Benedict Arnold, Marie

famed men and women. It would

p. R. K. INTENDS TO FIGHT.
The Pennsylvania has made up
its mind to fight for the property
which, in the language of some
great band, it needs in the busi
ness. Local speculators, following
up the announcement of the road,
to tunnel to this city have purchas
ed land along the proposed route
and will make an attempt to hold
up the road. If this should have
the effect of delaying the work, it
certainly is t< be implored—and,
indeed, it would be folly for the
company to pay the price they ask
for the land. Condemnation pro
ceedings will probably he institut
ed unless the speculators forego
their absurd demands. Nearly
every improvement, either public
or private, is hampered by such
people as these “investors’ who
have their eyes and ears continu
ally alert for opportunities of like
character. Perhaps if we each had
eapitol we would do like-wise j hut
if we were the companies, we would
likewise decline to pay the exorbi

A paper of this city, popularly
designated as yellow, prints a
story in which figures one famous
or notorious prize ring artist, in
in which that esteemed gentleman
was informed that one Mr. Fii li
desired conversation with him,

him. Subsequently the human
sledge hammer rung up the Mr.

joke started out on its travels it

to the credit or discredit of an
other celebrity and otherwise
dressed. It has had a checkered
career but it. is marvellously full
of life. But then, good jokes are
so rare and poor ones enjoy* such
long life that, it is easy to forgive
even a breach of confidence like
that of the yellow journal. Why,
when t hese joke mongers carve a
jest to pieces, do they not tack it
onto our esteemed cousin, Edward

LOANING MONEY ON REAL ESTATE.
Several of the leading bank
presidents of the city have declar
ed themselves on the proposition
to permit national banks to loan
money on real estate, and with
practical unanimity then condemn
the idea. They assert that nation
al banks, above all others, need
quick assets —that, is, assets that
are always readily available with
out sacrifice. Real estate pays
well, and comes without the pro
vince of savings banks and other
mediums, but these institutions
do not have the same need of
quick assets. If, through neces
sity, a national bank should be
obliged to realize on real estate,
it. might be able to do so only on
terms unremunerative if not dis
astrous. What is good property
today may tomorrow, from any of
a number of causes, he unprofita
ble, and a national bank should
not be permitted to include such a
class of investments among its
assets. The proposition has some
support elsewhere, but New York
seems solidly against it, on the
grounds of its unstability.
