Big aad Little Craft for
NEW YORK, Nov. 7. Only a few weeks
ago the waters along; the Atlantic coast
were crowded with yachts looking trim and
neat. These waters are deserted now and'
the trim, white-coated pleasure oraft are
lying In basins, shorn of their beauty.
Dirty streaks of black mar their white
hulls, and ovsr their decks, where guy
parties enjoyed themselves during the sum
mer months, are grim looking houses built
roughly of wood to protect the fine wood
work from the storms of the coming winter.
This la the doleful time of the year for
the yachtsmen. Hie season of fun Is over.
The craft on which he has sailed for many
miles, with wtiloh, perhaps, he fought with
the wind and sea and of will h he was
proud, la no longer a thing of beatuy, but
a hull, dismantled and homely.
All along the coast In the harbors fre
quented by yachts there are yards and ba
sins where these craft can be lalJ up when
not wanted by their owners. The larger
craft float Uk the water, sometimes anchored
out In the harboi- and sometimes moored
alongside piers. The amai;r craft and
yachts that are particularly In need of care
-rare hauled out on the beach and then carc-
luny and anngly covered up. The spars and
sails and fittings are stored in houses built
specially for the purpose.
Where the Boats Lie.
There are basins at Boston, Marblehe'ad,
Newport, New London, Greenwich, Milton
Point, Huntington, Port Jefferson, City
Island, New Hochelle, South Brooklyn, Bay
Ridge and Gravescnd. There are yards
along the Btaten Island shore, on the New
Jursey coast; Indeed, wherever there are
yachts and yachting there are yards where
the craft can be stored.
The larger craft around New York are
la I J up at the Marine Basin at Ulmer Park,
at Tobo's Bur'.i at the foot of Twenty
third stieot, Brooklyn, at the foot of Flfty
flflh street. South Brooklyn, and along the
liurle.n river nt Morris Heights. Most of
the vi8els xtoied In these yards, with the
exception of the Marine basin, are steam
ers anI power boats, although there are a
few sailing craft.
At the Marine basin there are steamers
and sailing craft large and small, and there
Is found the largeet fleet -of dismantled
craft to be seen near the city. There are
three long piers, two of which form the
sides of the ba.sln, and one that runs down
the center, and every inch of space along
thuse piers Is occupied by craft well known
In the yachting world. In many places
theae vessels are three or four deep, and
on the shore the smaller craft are so thick
that walking through the grounds one has
to dodge around the hulls of boats that
have u( finished a season of cruslng and

Cut tills out and bring It with you
The Bensonhurst Yacht club has Its house
at the end. of the long pier at this basin,
and the members who visit the house dur
ing the winter can gaze on the largest, fleet
of yachts they have seen at one time. To
look toward the land a forest of masts
presents itself.' At the end of the basin are
several of the largest steamers owned In
The l.lneup of the Famous.
On the right Is the Columblu, owned by
J. Harvey Ladow and sometimes chartered
by James Stlllman. Next Is the Rhecluir,
the big steamer on which Confinodore D.
G. Rled flics his flag. The next boat, a
bluck yacht carefully housed over. Is he
Noma, which was owmal by the late W.
B. Leeds. The Rheclalr and Noma were
built at the same time from designs made
by Clinton H. Crane for men who were
partners, and they always have been stored
Next to the Noma Is the Kanawha, owned
by H. H. Rogers, This is the fastest
'steamer In these waters, and now It is
moored very close to the Noma., which
It defeated In the first race for the I-ysis-trata
cup. Another big steamer close by
the Kanawha is the Tuscarora, owned by
Mrs O. B. Jennings.
The Sultana, owned by E. H. Harriman,
Is a three-masted craft and Is seen on the
left of the bas.n and near it is the Halda,
owned by Max Klelschman, and the Endy
mion, 'owned by George Lauder, Jr.
A fair estimate of the value of the yachts
so plainly in sight from the club houso
would be J4.000.0CO. They are the largest
and most palatial In the basin. It Is not
overestimating things to say that the value
of all the yachts In the Marine basin is
more than J1O.0C0.000.
At Tebo's there are several large craft.
The Virginia, which Is to. moke a Journey
across the Atlantic next spring. Is their.
Worknun are overhauling the ciaft and
Rivets that are weak are being replaced so
that it may be stanch and sound for the
voyage. The Oneida, owned by Commodore
E. C. Benedict and oh which President
Cleveland made many cruises, Is another
boat that is being overhauled.
la a Class by Itself.
The only sldewheel steam yacht in these
waters, the Charmary. owned by Charles
G. Gates. Is carefully boxed over and looks
like anything but a comfortable and speedy
craft. It was formerly the Clermont and
was modeled after the Hudson river
steamer New York, which was burned only
a few days ago.
One of the most attractive yacht at this
basin Is the schooner (juet-n, the fastest

the engineers tackle the engines.
The running rigging Is taken down and
carefully overhauled and stored away. The
standing rigging is overhauled and ome

left to keep the spars in place. If the
yacht ha topmasts, these are lowered.
Then all brasswork, mahogany rail and
hatches i are carefully covered, o that
they shall be thoroughly protected from

as much careful work to be dune.
Every part has to be examined and care
fully covered with oil or vaseline to keep
It from rusting, and then many parts arc
wrapped to protect them from dampness
and weather, for the engine in a fine steam
yacht is as delicate a piece of machinery
as a watch and very little dampness will
ruin it. Finally a cap Is put on top of
When the yacht has been stripped and
covered a house Is usually built over the
deck so that the rain and snow cannot
beat against the. deck and deck houses, and
then all is snug for the winter. Two men
are usually left on a large vessel to watch
it and see that nothing happens and that
nothing I atolen, for even when stripped
there are still lots of things left that might
easily be removed and are worth stealing,
Usually on a large steamer the captain
and the engineer are engaged by the year
and It la part of their duty to watch the
vessel while it is laid up. They don't live
on board, but a a rule make dally visits
to their charge. The watchmen are often
selected from the crew. They live on the
vessel day and night. Thirty-five or forty
'lullars a month and their board is what
they are paid.
Caring- fur Mailing; Craft.
With a sailing craft the methods of lay
ing up 1 a little different. Yachts like the
Reliance, Constitution and Columbia are
hauled out of the water and stand on ways.
The Reliance and Columbia are at City
Island, the Constitution Is at New London
and the Shamrock HI Is at the Erie Basin.
Their mast have been removed and
houses built over their hulls to protect
them from the storms. Their spar are
carefully wrapped In burlap and atored
Laway. The rigging 1 Just as carefully pro
tected and the block are examined thor
oughly and atored away, each one being
labelled. The sails are all well dried,
folded carefully and put In the store
house. Small craft are often kept under sheds,
especially if they are built of mahogany
or cedar, or If left out in the open they
ere covered with canvas.
Many owners of small craft who have
summer homes near the water have their
yachts hauled cut on their own property
and leave them standing on the shore until
the next season The Hanan brothers,
who own the sloops Aspirant, Seneca and
other craft, have houses at l'ort Chester.
They haul their vessels out on their own
ways and have a storehouse In which to
keep sal'.s, spars, rigging and fittings.
With very small crafi. such as cetboats,
they are first dismasted, then hauled out
and turned over on the beach. Sometimes
they are covered with car.vas, but often
are merely treated to n coat of vaseline,
which keep the pUnklng . from drying
wien exiHfed to the weather, and then in
the spring, when refitted, this vafcellno is

Then there la the cost of hauling the

spars, rigging, sails and fittings, depends
on the amount of space required for all
It Is the same with a large yacht that
floats in a basin all the, winter. Then
there are watchmen to Be paid and Insur
ance charges and other little things that
keep the owner constantly drawing on his
bank. The big steamer Altec Is laid up at
Greenport. Tills yacht Is one of the largest
built In thl country. It ha handsome fit
tings, upholsterlngs and draperies, amd
many finely built small boats. It is said
that It costs $2,500 a month while It Is out
of commission. Yachting Is a costly luxury
not only while the yacht Is In commission,
but also while it Is not In use at all.
FOR THE COMM0N GOOD
Sense of Civic Doty Developed Abroad
Far Mora Than in the
Vnlted States. .
Of all things that make an Impression
upon the American student of European
conditions, the first is the high develop
ment in Europe of the sense of civic duty,
a acm-e of which we seem to have little or
1 mean it Is like this: All about Europe
are men, good men. Intelligent men, glad
and proud to serve the common good, and
to serve It for no other compensation than
the consciousness of service done; whereas
In our country the sole baa! of work lor
the community Is the salary... attached
The most conspicuous example of disin
terested communal service Is the London
County Council, In many respects the
world's model a an administrative body.
The amount of actual work It perform
much exceeds the amount of work per
formed by any other municipal body In the
world. Each member performs in any
given year at least ten t mts as much work
for the community as I done by any
It work 1 done without scandal, with
out grafting, without a boas, without a ma
chine and solely for the benefit of the
community.. Yet. observe that the mem
ber perform all this exhausting toll with
out compensation. There are no salaries
In the London County Council. . The work
Is gratuitous. So Is It gratuituos In all the
other similar public bodies In Great Britain
and on the continent. The members of
municipal council, boards and commis
sion serve for nothing, and are glad to
serve for nothing, because they are thus
contributing to the common good, which
they believe to be the highest duty and
function of many.
To sum up, we pay men and get poor
service, and the British do not pay and get
good service. But this Is not at all the
mystery it seems on it surface to be. For
You do nothing for the common good.
I do nothing for the common good. None
of us does anything for the emmon goou.
You are willing to serve the common good.
I am willing to serve the common good.
All are willing to serve the common good.
Well, what is the matter then? Why, the
matter la that, partly because of our own
fault and chiefly because of an Inherited
custom. We have no chance, ft.stead of
ourselves doing the work we ought to do
for the common good we hire some one
else to do It for us, and, being done for
money the work is 111 done aiid expen
sively done and Inadequately done. And,
because it Is done for money It Is placed
at 'once on the basis of sordid gain, and
the door Is opened for all corruption, and
particularly for the bribes of the public
utility corporation. Hence, behold the
worst municipal government In the world.
On still other ground, it Is a bad prac
tice, for see how much ability it catiRcs to
be . lost from the public service. Charles
Edward Russell, In the November Everybody'.

Enormous Sams Spent by Americans
Shown la Confectioner'
An example of tiie enormous sums which
the American people spend annually on
! luxuries Is shown by tho statement In the
current number of the Confectioner and
i Bakers' Gazette to the effect that the
wholesale value of the candy output In
! the United States for the current year will
1 exceed $100,000,000. The cost to the con
sumers will run fully $30,000,000 In excess of
this sum. Thus representing the profits
of Jobbers and retailers.
I According to the I'nited States census
j figures, the capital Invested In the manu
facture of confectionery was $S,4S,Si4 in
l&to. This had IticreuBcd In IMO to VX;i:Z,'J.
in 1900, to $X319,195, and in 1905 to $t:i.lL3.t .
The cost of materials used have Increase;!
from $17,135,775 in 1SS0 to $31,116,629 in 18!0.
