These cider saloons STOP THIS PRACTICE The Hrt'ald has positive informa- tion that- some parties in the city who have roomesto transients are taking advantage of the overcrowding! to charge exorbitant rates for their rooms. One man with his wife and four children were in one case all packed into one room in a house that would ordinarily charge fifty cents a room and when he asked for his billj for the night's lodging was charged three dollars, the same as if each one had had a bed. Other cases more or less flagrant have been reported. This aort of hold-up business is one of the worst things that can be reported against the city and should not be done. It is doubtful if the authorities can do. anything -in the matter, re- grettable though it be. About the thing to do is to report such occurrences until the force of public will cause these people to discontinue the practice or lose their business. Such people should be shown some way or other that their policy is a very ahort-sighted one from their own standpoint. The!
