It was a regretful day wiibh the western capitalists -when they p'assed control of the road and they realized it laHterwaird, but too lute. Could they have (forseen the great increase in po(pulation for freeport, Roosevelt, Baldwin, Rockville (ientre, Lynbrook, Hempstead, and other places in Nas¬ .sau County, aind those in Quetyis, the s'aile of tihe trolley, it is certfiin, would not have occurred.
The western men "would have con¬ tinued .their progireesive policy, in- croaising the facilities of the road, particularly in the way of ser'vice and oanrs—ithe two great essentJais. Since the transfer of interests occurred, there has pnaictioaHy been no marked imrprovemenft in the line other than the running of cars nearer on time itihian they weire a few years aigo.
There is nnich need of double-track¬ ing amd better cars to do away -with the couigeettioai of trtUfic, -wihich nmakee

Freeport's Loan Com- miittee beigan at the source—each hriuse in the disbrict. The people, men women aiml children, to the num¬ ber of 2,r)00 in a population of 10,000, bought bonds—.the very diogs 'wy.nit down for bonds. At 9 o'clock on Sa/t- urday night the quota. $197,.W0, was i far in the rear; $41,3,000 had been j obtaiined, and C*ap!tain Cook boildly ' saiid .$42.5,000 would be reaJlized iwhen the back districts had roportctl. Then whiilt ih'ap.penir'd in tho next three hours is typical of all thoroagih or- ' gamization—$.^)7,000 tumbled in. mak¬ ing a total of $482,000 and a cool half million that ¦was pooh-ipoohed as wild exitravagance at 9 o'clock ciune wi/thin reach. Thd proper way is to lay off | a great ring and to drive toward tiho | centre. The FreoiioTt plan of raisimg j bond monisy 'is correct in princip'le | and should be cowiimendetl by Secre-1 tairy .McAdoo to tihe resit of the coun- i try. The list of Freeport bondholders j was printed daily with correcti'Onis, ¦ briiigrrag it up to diate, and 'it looked ' like an old-faslh'ionled blanket news- ¦ paper.
POUTICAL AND PERSONAL
"CJesn-up Week' opened on Monday wMi ideal weather for making com- munibies present a better appearance by clearing yards, vacant lots, streets and oith«r places of refuse which ac- cumularted during the winter and the early spring months. There is much Work to be done in this direction by every town and when the week ends on Saturday The Traveler anlticipatee that the State Board of Healibh will receive glowing reportts from all local authorities.
Spring is asserting itself with vigor and in all seiouflly? It never lihinks of the land of cotton but it bursts into heartrending song thM would melt the callous breast of the most be-eagkad musta'cflied PrussMin oflicer. The So-ath seems to be a place where they oan lay their heads do'wn . and weep and weep and collect roy- alti s on their sorrow.
The .wng writers who never leave West fVrty-fif th stiree* except to wan¬ der into a nafe and out again «u)d then in again to stay, are continu¬ ously getting inspired by Floricba, NioiHh Carolina, South Carolina, Vir- .ginia, Georgia and Temne-ssee. AH s'tjites look alike to them as long aa they occupy the .South. T»iey simply sniff at « poor lone sitate that has nothing again.it it except the fact that in a forgeWul moment it select¬ ed the North to be Lorn in.
"Rut the South! Ah! F^very time tfhese 'Southerners from the Bronx and Harlem muse on the South's glories that "shall not return no more"—to use the perfect grammar of one of 'their lyricists, they lean up against the bar and allow their lachrymal glnnds to have.full play. Then, wihen they get nil choked up about the throat and can endure no moro of the South's tribulations they stagger oat into the night and take a subway, going north, to either the vine-clad hills of the Bronx or the purple mountainous region of Harlem.
"Once there they will punish an innocent piec? of white paper with soul-stirring, heart- clutching, tear- .<«tJarting words—words doleful witlh regret that they never -will ever get back to mammy waiting at the cabin door. Or that their eyes no longer will b:'liold the waving fields of cotton. Or how terrible it is that the yellovr haired Dixie gal standing there bare¬ footed at the wooden mill will never see their faces again.
"You cant 'take one of these Ewngs up without finding the fellow who pen¬ ned it express his mournful personal sorrow for having the hard luck to earn $."),000 a year in little old Goth¬ am, when how happier he would be if he was back on the old Southern farm getting $10 a year!
"If you have a sad song detailing Dixie's woes get it out and go to a Broadway son(g publisher. The sadder it is the happier he will feel, and thf more profit in it for both of you."
.lanhors and helpers at the Court House have petitioned for an increase in salary. The helpers are paid $70 a month and the jajidtoTs $80.
The poliitioal ¦writer of the Hemp¬ stead Sentinel is endeavoring to hold a post-mortem over the I>emiocratic party in the town oif Hempstead amd in Nassau Coumity. It would deem of little uae to gave the corpse amy ex- laminiaitiion to ascertain the cause of its demise. The e^vidence has been plainly set forth in mlany direotdons.
riding on the oars unpleasant except ¦vairious instances ihave been observed I wihan patrontage is far hekxw normal, ¦whare a douWe-header or tra'iler car | and these ocany must easily have Agured its necessftiy. But, ao long 'as itihe public will stand for the lack of seats, crowd¬ ing and jiostliing, and a lot of otheir vexatiioiis, j uat So long -wiill the 'trolley company continue running as few cars as posBible amd spend no mojrey for ones that are of modem design and eflTording better accommodations.
