"Roads had been gullied by the

strewn with washed-out boulders and
every flat stretch was deep with mire.

"Time and agfain it came to a dead
halt until the chaplain and the bride

which they uprooted and crammed
beneath the wheels that they pried ' p
laboriously with fence rails. At last
the vehicle settled down in a vast
morass where neither brush nor fence

NEW. YORK LETTER.
(Special Correspondent of The Dis
New York, April 4. The revival of
the gambling murders, a throw back
to the days of Becker and Rosenthal,
has stirred the Tenderloin sporting
circles of Gotham. The arrest of
Morris Rothenberg, a singing waiter,
accused of murdering his gambling
companion, throws some queer side
lights onthe underworld.
It is to Yong Corbett, pugilist and
phrase makert that one turns for an
adequate description of Rothenberg,
who warbled blithely as he dealt ham
and off his husky arm.
It was in the days when Corbett
began to .put on embonpoint and his
declension from the first to the sec
ond rank of pugilism had definitely
set In that the debonair pugilist, who
loved a jest even when he himself
carried the brunt of it, added the
term and description "stopper" to th
vocabulary of Broadway.
The singing waiter was a "stopper.
A "stopper" is one who tarries in the
place wifere sporting characters gath
er, and whensovere he decrise cur
rency or suspects its . neighborhood
"stops" the person seen or assumed
to have it and requests the ; accom
modation, of a temporary loan.
The "stopper" has no . definite
place of residence. He fetches, ear
ries and runs servile errands for who
ever will grant him a tiny stake.
There are many "stoppers" in the
!btack rooms along Seventh Avenue
and in the all night drug stores and
cheap gambling resorts. Most of
them are "hop heads" adicts to
opium smoking and it is always pos
sible for them to break out in, crime.
Most of them live. off the so-called
earnings of hapless women. Thev
dress well and seem happy at all
times. If the hazards are not . too
i:reat they ri&e in the subway at
rush hours and pick a wallet or watch
from some innocent enthralled in the
reading of his evening paper.
The "stopper" does not get up un
til sun down and he goes to bed when
m?st folk are going to their daily
work. The police know them and
they stay clear of the big hotel lob
bies where th grafting is always good
and - hug to the dimly lighted back
rooms of saloons or behind the barr
ed doors of the" East Side stuss houses.
