PARKER COULD ILL AFFORD
EXPENSE OF THE CAMPAIGN
Unsuccessful Race for Presidency Put
Financial Kink in the Democratic
Leader That Is Embarrassing.
Esopus,. It la the renersl report
her that Judg Alton B, Parker, be
cause of the large expenditure under
taken by htm during the eampaifn.
has been reduced financially to tuch
an extent that he will have to engage
in some business at once. It was
learned today that he has been offered
a prominent position with a targe law
firm In Albany, which, it Is thought,
he trill accept without delay.
The report that he had ben forced
to spend several thousands of dollars
during the campaign was substantia
ted today by Emory Freer, a close
friend of the defeated candidate and
the wealthiest merchant In the town
of Esopus. Mr. Freer was one of the
party of friends who were wtth Judge
Parker at the tatter's house when the
returns were received.
When seen In his store today Mr.
Freer was very much downcast over
the defeat of his fellow townsman.
"It was awful awful," said Mr.
Freer, "but the judge took it all like
the man he is. Never a sorrowful look
or a shadow of disappointment crossed
his face when the returns were being
read to him.
"He was much more cheerful than
any of us or his family. He kept
uttering little side remarks of a cheer
ful nature all the time and tried to
keep up our spirits, but it was a hard
job. He felt more sorry f ir the de
mocratic party than he did for himself.
"Now, supposing Judge Parker had
been elected president. It would not
have benefitted him to any extent. He
would have had to spend his salary en
tertaining at the white house, and
what would he have had left at the
end of four years? The judge realises
that he is getting along in years, and
he intends to begin at once to put a
"He will go into law practice at
once, and he will doubtless make more
money that way than he would In the
presidential chair. Judge Parker is
not a ricb man, and this campaign cost
him several thousand dollars. He has
always been whole hearted and gener
ous to a fault, which has kept him
from accumulating as much as he
"He refused to take a cent from the
democratic managers for his ex
penses during the campaign and the
cost of his trips to the city, hotel bills,
and the many receptions he has
given at his home in Esopus, has been
a good deal more than ' you would
"It has always been that way with
him. If he goes with a friend to
Kingston or Albany you have to be
very quick to prevent him from pay
Ing every little thing. As for his be
ing defeated In his own county, I was
very sorry to hear It, but you must
consider that formally Esopus has al
ways gone republican by a big ma
jority, while this year Judge Parker

The laundry la by no means an In
significant department, and a fore of
fifty employes are assigned to the work.
With the aid of automatic arrange
ments for cleaning and Ironing, the
laundry of the guests Is attended to,
and in addition are 100.000 napkins, SO,
000 towels and 000 pieces of bed Jlnen
to keep clean.
There Is never a moment during the
Si hours of the day that there Is not
a force working about some section of
a typical hostelry. Even through the
wee sma' hours of the morning, when
the guests are wrapped in slumber, ISO
housecleaners re passing through the
corridors pollshtng the furniture and
sweeping up the waste which has ac
cumulated. In fact, their work never
ceases and as soon as their rounds are
finished the territory is Immediately

As in other large hotels, the purely
industrial departments are down be
low the street level. In the basement
and sub-basements. Of these the
kitchen is probably the most interest
Ing, occupying three-quarters of th
space on the basement floor. Under
the guiding hand of the chef 19S em
ployes, assigned to various positions In
this department, are kept on the go.
The kitchen of the Hotel Astor Is said
to be the largest In the world, and
trip through It reveals much of Interest.
It somewhat resembles a huge lobby,
and Is sub-divided Into many depart
ments, such as the butcher shop, knife
cleaning and dish washing room, cold
meat room, the bakery, and serving
room, in which all dishes ready
serve, such as jellies, jams, etc., are
Each cook works Individually and
wholly Independent of his neighbor. For
Instance, one devotes his attention to
the broiler, another to roasts, and per
haps still another to fish.
The high salaried men of the kitchen
are the confectionery makers, who turn
out many original ideas In dainty tees.
Then there are men who make coffee
alone, others whose duty It is to keep
the necessary number of plates heated,
which is done by plate-warming clos
ets heated to a certain temperature.
The grill room In the Hotel Astor Is
elaborately fitted out after the manner
of a German rathskeller. The guests
may ko to any of the large showcases
in which are arranged an inviting as
sortment of uncooked steaks, hops and
oilier dainty morsels, leave an order
and wait at one of the tables of quaint-
I ly carved woodwork until the order
Adjoining the grill room Is a barber
shop and manicuring parlor. A score
of barbers and a dozen manicurists are
