A LIVELY SORT
THINGS AND PEOPLE OF IN
TEREST IS DISCUSSED IN
NEW YORK, Jan. 13-With the de
l torture of a hundred thousand visiting
students, parents, shoppers and mem
: tiers of family reunion parties,Gotham
u today closing one of the liveliest
loliday seasons in its whole history.
Every niche in the hotels, shops, cars,
theatres, cabs and restaurants all over
the island' has been crammed for the
- last few weeks with this out-of-town
horde of vacationists. The regular
street life of New Yorkers has been
practically submerged in the whirl of
the visitors about the entire shopping
and amusement districts. No less
than ten thousand college boys and
girls from the homes of the metropo
lis, it is estimated, have to-day left
town, while almost an equal number
from the far sections of the continent
lave broken up holiday visitations
with their parents in this common
meeting ground. It has been many a
Tung year since this dry has seen such
a cheerful stir from abroad as has
opened for it the promising year of
1909.'..,., , t j
WAR OF WORDS. : ,
2 Bad blood between the bench and
the police department has always ex
isted in this towrij but to-day the ris
ing clamor of Magistrate Finn and
Police Commissioner Bingham is
threatening to develope a deadly fued
among the men who administer and
enforce the law. While "Battery Dan'
Finn is volleying stinging sentences
over his police court bar at every
lluecoat in sight, Bingham is inspir
ing his force with sullen defiance of
the whole ' judicial tribe by a return
fire of pertinent suggestions as to the
past of the belligerent Tammany mag
istrate. . . Wherever court officials
meet a police officer a war of words is
rife in every one of the local temples
of justice. Neither the former White
House major domo nor the former
Tammany boss of the Battery is con
sidered the man to back down in a
matter' of this sort, and it is predicted
that their spirited squabble will con
tinue to embroil the courts through
most of the new year. The law's de
lays are serious enough in this town
without the added impediment of con
stant personal altercation, and every
one is hoping that some stop may
speedily be put tQ this useless word
SUCCORING THE SICK.
That the poor and friendless owe
more than a million and a half days
of free treatment with the best medi
cal and surgical attention to the last
ten years' work of one of this citys
largest hospitals has been shown here
to-day. In presenting the living mon
ument most fitting to be perpetuated
by the American people in the nam
of Abraham Lincoln, this remarkabU
record of service to black and whit,
alike has been obtained by leaders i
the national movement to endow thi'
Lincoln Hospital and Home for all
time Uver tne aoor oi mis msiuu
tion, where almost five hundred un
fortunates of both races are bein
cared for and restored to life an
health each day, it is proposed tc
raise the name of the great emancipa
tor" with a permanent fund of half a
million dollars, which are already be
ginning to be received for this Lin
coln Memorial Fund at 475 Fifth Ave
nue. New Yorkers have long known
of the great good which this work
was spreading all .over the country,
where a hundred colored nurses have
been trained and sent to extend its
scope, and these figures are only ser
ving to confirm their idea of the mag
nitude of its usefulness at home.
