camp or a frontier town, Is the tone
of all this morning's issue, of the
paper.. With three murder., a num
ber of robberies on the highway ac-
companled by violence, and an at
tempt at crucifixion In 24 hours, add
ed to the large number that have oc
rnrrnd durina- the past two weeks,
there has been such a public demand
for extra police that Mayor Guthrie
and Director of Public Safety Kidg-
way last night put on a number of
extra police without legal provision
for their compensation, trusting to
the effect of public clamor upon tne
select and common councils for fa
vorable action upon this move.
The record for 24 hours, besides the
murder of Henry F. Smith, a young
business man of the fashionable East
End, who was shot by burglars who
entered the Smith home, Is extenaea
bv the robbery of Charles R. Law-
yence, earljf yesterday mornlrte at
Fifth avenue ana raay sirens, i-
mnst in the heart of the city. Law-
nnra was knocked unconscious with
a slugshot and robbed of a gold watch
and all his money while going nome
from the Hotel Scheniey. where he
! nmnloved as a waiter. He will be
confined to his bed for a week with

wnvmond White of Doquesne was
nian found early yesterday oauiy
hnianri with several ribs broken. He
also had been robbed and could give
no description of his assailants.
Tmhnidened by the apparent neip
lessness of the police department and
fltnctivn forces, the hold-up men ana
hnririars that have terrorized the city
for ten days, have apparently ex-
tnnrted their operations into broaa aay
light, as well as under the cover of
darkness. After the trageaies or last
nio-ht this afternoon at 4 o'clock at
the comer of Sixth avenue and Wood
street, and within a few hundred
yards of the poUce station, Mrs. A.
C. Boykln was assaulted and robbed
h., twn men who made their escape.
In the mean time members of busi
ness firms are holding meetings ana
drawing up petitions to the mayor and
public officials. On the East Side,
where Smith was murdered yesterday
by a burglar, a mass meeting was
held tonight by the citizens, at which
a vigilance committee was appointed.
Resolutions were passed recommend
ing that the citizens arm themselves,
and recommending the purchase of
Receipt, of Diamond, and Precious
Stone. In New York.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12. With sev
eral weeks to spare the present year
has passed all others In the total val
uation of the precious stone, and
pearls brought into the port of New
York. Figure, compiled by customs'
authorities showed that the record of
last year, $37,148,387, the highest up
to that time, already had been passed.
The American demand for foreign
gems Is mostly! In diamonds and
pearls. Importers say that the ten
dency of prices is still upward becausa
never before has it been as difficult
as it la now to obtain tbte better
grade of stones demanded by Ameri
