London, Si'pt. 7. Tlioro Is irohnbly
no ot in journalism which American
iiovnmHT men doslro bo much ns that
of London correspondent, Tho nlttmtlon
In not only hlfthly lmld hut it involves no
email deirrco of dignity and importunco.
To he 3,000 iiilles from the K'-i of your
city editor In it relief to oven tho most
conscientious, hard working wrltoM,
The London correspondent Is its nearly
his own master ns any man can ho who
is attached to a dally newspaper, It is
understood that at so great a distance
from tho homo oftico Ills judgment must
lie rolled upon, and no wise concern
thinks of assigning it man to Loudon
without expecting to rely upon tho cor
respondent's discretion and faithfulness.
It ought to follow, then, that tho hand
ful of American reporters in this city
should bo tho cream of tho profession,
Whether that is so in every instance tho
writer cannot say, but ho has found
them an Interesting lot of fellows, faith
ful nml Industrious.
"Industrious" might seem to bo n mis
nomer to somo of tho rank and (lie in
America, if thoy should take a casual
glance at tho men as thoy appear in tho
corridors and smoking rooms of tho great
hotels, For just an Instant tho Ameri
can reporter might think that these boys
wero having a good time nml devoting
themselves assiduously to good dress,
luxurious apartments and dignified oaso
generally. Tho judgment would bo a
mistaken one. That thoy havo a good
time Is pretty certain, for they enjoy
their work, and for tho most of thorn
tho work takes them necessarily to
places where men of wealth and position
congregate. While tho correspondent is
chatting with a group of men ho is on
tho qui vivo for an item of news, or n
story for his Sunday letter. There is a
pinto for him at important banquets, ho
Is welcomed at many social functions,
and in other respects which reporters
know all about ho is an established ilg
tiro in English life.
Not more than threoorfourof tho cor
respondents are concerned in furnishing
"routine" news; that is, stock quota
tions, market reiiorts, parliamentary
proceedings, ordinary calamities and
tho like. AH this is relegated to the
great news associations that havo their
oftkes hero and their stalTs of local re
porters. In three instances Americans
are at tho head of tho Loudon ofllces of
news associations, but their employees
arc, 1 think without exception, English
men. To them the London newspapers
nro an invaluable aid, and much of their
uows is sent directly from tho printed I
columns alter mey nave appeared on me
street. Tho six hours' dlffereuco in timo
between London and Now York makes
this a perfectly legitimate and feasible
form of news gathering.
For Instance, somo of tho Imjiortant
evening papers appear at 1 o'clock; it is
then but a-few minutes after 7 in Now
York, an hour when tho evening nows
paper ofllces nro deserted, unless somo
energetic office boy has come down tin
usually early to clenn up. By wiring
the important news of tho day at any
timo Ireforo S p. m. tho American papers
nro supplied hours before they would
think of Issuing an edition. Tho satno
thing follows with the morning papers,
although tho results aro not quite so
satisfactory. It is quite possible, how
over, to send everything of Importance
iu tho London morning papers so as to
reach New ork by midnight, mid every
association takes a hand in this kind of
Tho correspondents of theso individual
papers do not concern themselves with
this manner of hustling. They dovoto
their efforts, ns I havo indicated, to get
ting inside information, working up
siwcial topics, that by tho very reason of
their American flavor would not natur
ally bo covered by tho Loudon press.
Tho dean of the correspondents hero Is,
of course, Mr. G. W. Smalley, of the New
York Tribune. His appointment dates
from the early seventies. Ho lives in a
fashionable ueighliorhood and does not
mlnglo much with his rivals, who are
nearly all much younger than himself
and naturally not the most congenial as
sociates. Mr. Smalley Is decidedly a
fixture iu British society, and it is there
ho is best known.
Next to him in seniority of appoint
ment is Mr. Harold Frederic, tho corre
spondent for the New York Times. His
career has been a brilliant ono on this
side, whoro ho has been statloued for
about eight years. He. too. annears to
bo n fixture in London, but ho frequent
ly makes long trips to tho Continent In
the pursuit of special topics. The result
of one of these trips was a series of arti
cles In Tho Times about the young Ger
man emperor. It was theso articles,
published In book form a few weeks
ago, that inado tho tjreatest llternry sen
sation of tho year. It Is not uecessary to
speak of Mr. Froderic's novels, for every
body knows about them, It mluht also
go without saying that ho is preparing
another. Ho is never idle, nml oven n
newspaper man may wonder how ho
finds timo to do all his work.
Mr. Arthur Warren represents the
Boston Herald. Ho is about tlitrty-ono
years old, aud a inau whose outhiiainsm
for his profession 1 havo seldom seen
equaled. Ho lives in a beautiful apart
ment hoiue iu tho district known as
Chelsea, and from his windows he com
mands a flue view of the Thames, Bat
terea park and a great stretch of the
By common consent the hardest work
ing American newspaper man in London
Is Mr. E. Tracy Grenves, correspondent
or tho Now York World. Ho has ofllces
In Trafalgar square, where you may
have a reasonable chance of finding him
at any hour of the day or night. Not
content with pursuing tho gnmo of news
hunting indufatigiilily, ho has recently
scented mi American assistant in tho
person of Mr John .1 a Becket, the
author of many charming short stories
In the American magazines Mr. a
Becket was attached to Tho Evening
Worrl before his recent transfer to this
Tho Now York Sun's "bright young
man" Is Mr, Frank Marshall White, at,
one timo the literary editor of Life. Mr,
Whlto has an otllco on tho Strand, nnd
he, like tho others, Is frequently on the
Continent on special missions. Every
newspaper man, at least, knows his Sun
day letter, which iu many resects is the
brightest of all tho correspondence sent
from this side. Ho lias no regular assist
ant, for tho work demanded by The
Sun Is not of a character to require tt;
hut on Saturdays, when his letter is Iu
pieparatlon, ho often lias a half dozen
men scouring tho town under his d I lec
tion in search of facts.
The Now York Herald, long famous
for Its foreign nows, Is represented here
just now by two men, Messrs. James
Creelman 'nml T. B, Fielders. Mr.
Fielders enlno hero from tho Now York
Times a little more than two years ago,
Shortly afterward Mr. Creelman came
over to take charge of the Herald's Lon
don edition. Since then, however, ho
lias boon flying about all over Europe
nnd writing all manner of articles that
have had great sensational interest by
reason of tho topics treated. It Is worth
recalling that It was ho who secured tho
famous Interview with tho pope, and
more recently ho has published a set
controversy between himself and Count
Tolstoi nbout tho "Tho Kreutzer Son
aU." A short timo ago Mr. Creelman was
detailed to London, and he aud Fielders
aro co-oporating iu the work of sending
nows to America. There is another
American newspaper man hero connect
ed with Tho Herald iu tho capacity ot
editor of tho Sunday paper. This Is Mr.
Italpli B. Blumcufeld. Ho had been fot
a long timo tho city editor of Tho Tele
gram, Tho Herald's evening edition in
Now York. Under his management the
London paper has become very prosper
ous, and appears to be still moving on to
that respectful recognition which Eng
gllsh people aro bo slow to grant tc
Among other young Americnn news
paper men now stationed iiero nro Mr.
II. J. W. Dam, correspondent for the
Now York Recorder; Mr. Louis Moore
representative of tho United Press; Mr.
Walter Knlen", chief of tho Associated
Press oflleo, and Mr. Horace Townsond.
formerly a Now York Tribune reporter.
Both Messrs. Dam and Townsund are
writing rather more for tho English
press than for tho American, and Dam
has brought himself somewhat to the
front by u play "Diamond Deano"
which was produced at tho Vaudeville
Nearly all theso men appear to regard
London ns a permanent residence, for
tho bachelors among them have fitted
up comfortable chambers (English for
apartments) and the married men have
taken long leases of houses or tints
Some of the bachelors, like Creelman
are babbling of marriage when the
leaves havo fallen. Nearly nil aro club
men, the famous Savage claiming their
first alleglc.ice, of course, nnd tho Nn
tionnl Liberal coming perhaps second.

Thomas Dixon, Jr., is another
preacher who has attracted a great deal
of attention during tho past year. But,
although aggressive and strongly per

high places he may deem guilty, he.
nevertheless, is thoroughly orthodox.
His church the Twenty-third Street
Baptist, Now York soon proved too
small to accommodate tho crowds that
flocked to hear the bold, magnetic
preacher. Tho beautiful little church
was closed, and the congregation had to
seek temporary quarters iu tho large As

Probably the youngest bishop in the
Uulted States is the recently elected
assistant bishop of Louisiana, Rev. David

Galleher render him unfit for ceremonial

A woman with n bundle iu a shawl strap

the other day with the announcement that
her husband was lost. They were coming
down town from tho depot and had got off
