The Victoria Is the last survivor of
famous group of hotels about which
the night life of the town used to cen
ter thirty years ago, a link between
the old lower Broadway hotels of the
last generation and the modern steel
structures of today farther uptown.
It was opened In 1875).
For many years a large portrait of
Queen Victoria was hung in its lobby,
and it straightway became a favorite
place for English visitors to stop. Ac
tor folk also showed a fondness for it,
Sir Henry Irving making bis bead
quarters there while playing here. The
statesmen seemed Inclined to cling to
the Fiftb Avenue, at least those of the
Republican persuasion, but an attempt
was made to make it a Democratic
hangout President Cleveland helped
some. He stopped there at the time of
the Columbian celebratiou. as did also
other members of his cabinet
In 1805 the hotel was closed, the ho
tel center already having begun to

competition of the newer type of ho
tels keenly, but for awhile it took a
new lease of life and attracted many
of Its former patrons again, even the

years was a famous hotel center.
SUPREME COURT'S WORK.
Great Amount to Be Done When
Judges Return From Vacation.
Coincident with the closing of the
term of the supreme court of the Unit
ed States and the departure of the Jus
tices for their summer vacations has
been the planning of an Immense
amount of work for the court when It
meets again next October.
Thirty-five cases, some of them of
farreachlng Importance, have been ad
vanced for hearing on the first day of
the next term "or as soon thereafter
as practicable." The quoted phrase Is
estimated to mean a month, for It Is
said that It will take at least that time
to hear the arguments in all these
Among the cases advanced are those
Involving the validity of the Indict
ment of Charles F. Munday and others
growing out of the so called Stracey
coal lands clulms In Alaska and of
the Indictment of James A. Patten and
others on charges of violating the Sher
man anti-trust law In "cornering" the
cotton market. The review of the trial
of Frederick A. Hyde and others on
charges of land frauds on Uie Pacific
coast will be another prominent case.
In addition to these the court will
have under advisement during the
summer about a dozen cases which
were argued In the term Just closed,
but not decided. Probably the most
important of these is that involving
the constitutionality of the federal
employers' liability act of 1008.
According to a summary by Deputy
Clerk Mnher of the work done by the
court during the term Just ended, 5(J9
cases were filed and 454 were disposed
of. These Included 100 opinions. Dur
ing the preceding term 503 cases were
filed and only 305 cases were disposed
of, including 170 opinions.
A RISE IN MUTTON.
Only the Leg Went Up, and Then There
Came a Drop.
In the "pood old days" at the Hay
market theater there was being played
a musical fnrce In which was required
a real boiled leg of mutton every
night This, according to the law of
"property," or. rather, the "property
man's" law, went after the perform
ance almost untouched to the ofilclal
named. But the "flymen" perched up
aloft did not like this, for they, too,
had wives and families, to whom a
boiled leg of mutton would have been
a thing to be remembered.
So they hit upon a plan, and one
night William Farren, who bad the
earring of the Joint was asked to fix
a book that would be let down from
the flies Into the mutton and "leave
' the rest to them.". Farren. always
ready for a practical Joke, consented
and as the scene was coming to a ter
mination fastened the book Into the
leg of mutton. As scene shifters were
preparing to "cloHe in" and the prop
erty nuin atnnrf In tha win n- ranIff fA
' seize on bis perquisite the leg of mat-
ton was seen slowly to ascend.
The audience laughed. Henry Comp
ton. who wua watching the maneuver,
laughed, too, and the employees all
gave vent to their feelings In ill sup
pressed m-rrlmeut all except the
property man, who remained miser
ably serious and gnzed at the fast de
parting supper with a woebegone
couutenauce. Huddenly as the scene
was almost closed In the book, which
Farren bad unfortunately fastened
only In the fat. gave way, and down
came the coveted mutton with a ter
rific splash upon the dish.
The audience now roared, the em
ployees roared, both Farren and
Compton roared, aud as the "data"
hid the unrehearsed tableau from
view tbe now delighted property man
rushed upon the Stage and secured bis
111 treated supper. London Family
