In Canada an employe of a gar
age smoked a cigarette over a can

ought to be special and severe penal

jeopardized quite as much as proper
ty. In tho new crusade for fire pre
vention careless smokers should have
prominent consideration.

cution. Tho hotel in question Is
located on tho river road at a point
several hundred yards back of tho
main road. It is one and one-half
miles to Hancock, N. Y., 9 miles to
Equinunk, 8 miles to Lake Como.
Several remonstrances were flled
against this petition and among
them were two from Hancock. N.
Y, These two remonstrances com
ing from persons living In the state
of New York could not be consider
ed, however, their evidence was
allowed to go In.

Murphy testified to the good char
acter of Mr. Downs and the neces
sity of a hotel at this place, saying
that It was an ideal spot for sum
mer tourists and to go to Hancock
a person would be obliged to pay a
toll to cross the bridge. J. A. Bodfe,
Jr., showed pictures to the Court
wnich ho had taken of the pro
posed hotel and he stated that he
had been inside the house, -which
is almost now and well conducted.
M. F. Downs stated that he expected
to servo the oest class of the public
as ho had done In the past and that
he was not depending wholly on
business from Hancock. He said
ho could accommodate 30 people, his
house having 10 rooms and a large
dining room which would seat near
ly 20 persons. Ho stated to the
Court that he was an experienced ho
tel keeper, having somo eleven
years' experience in this state and
also in New York. Ho produced a
book showing last year's business
which showed receipts from boarders
$837.75. and from travelers of $39.

In tho remonstrance there were
seven witnesses, William Kingsbury,
Hancock, N. Y., H. A. Williams,
Hancock, N. Y Boyd Belknapp, Jas.
tioag, uu. Terwiniger, Mr. Kings,
bury, Autumn Leaves. These wit
nesses all testified to the lack of
travel on tho road where the hotel
stands and stated that ono was not
necessary hero for the travel was
mostly by drummers, who hired
rigs In Hancock to go to Lake Como
and Equinunk and Invariably went
back to Hancock for hotel accommo
dations. Somo of tho witnesses
were against hotel licenses on gen
eral principals but most of them op
posed the hotel license on the
ground that it was unnecessary.
Ono man stated that that region
was on the decline and not as pro
gressive as it was 20 years ago
when the lumbering was good. Ho
stated that oven the school was go
ing down, having only three pupils
at this tlmo. This saimo man said,
when asked If he didn't think ad
vertising would bring business, "No
need of advertising. What's tho use
of wasting your money on that."

being able to renew it, was compelled to

He was forced to sell them at a sacrifice
