Large haul in fine low tide
Beachcombers Fight for Gems Found at Rockaway?Riot
Over Jewelled Garter Ends in Its Presentation
to Comely Young Woman.
The high northwest wind of the last
few days made the tide so low yesterday
that four or flve hundred beachcombers
turned out alonar; the city beaches to try
their lurk. While several thousand per
Mas were wat'hlng them from the Board- |
walk from Rockaway Park to Arverne I
the combers fought for various articles
that they picked up along the ocean front. |
At sundown it was found that the |
combers had a very profitable nfternoon. I
The articles plckod up by the lucky ones
Included three gold watches, fifty brare
lets, any number of baby rings, signet
rings, three sets of dioxnond earrings, a
set with pearls and a ruby ring surround?
ed by fifteen diamonds. Andrew Burr,
living at Bems.-n avenue. Seaside, was
the finder of the last named STtJooL
Not content with Jewelry, the, combers
leaped a harvest In ?-"Ins of denomina- I
tions from one ' ent to M cents. The ,
findings also included n woman's light
Mm garter with a gold buckle attar-h?"!
and the initial "B" engraved on the In?
side of It. Abo a set of false teeth
The tide was extremely low, and In the
combers' favor. For som? reason, the
Searches! did net scatter much, and as ;<
result ther?? w..s some lively scraps
wh'-never one would come gCTSSS som??
artlrlo of value.
The woman's garter probably caused
more trouble than any other find. Sev?
eral of the beachcombers came a^r^ss
this article almost simultaneously.
"It is mine!" shouted one of them as he
started to pit-k it up.
"It belongs to me M much hs you," te
"Why, I spotf?! tin? gartT M soon as
nny of yon," replied a third.
And so it went. For nearly fifteen min?
utes they all trl??d to claim It. Finally,
one of the onlookers, a very pretty mahl?
en, about nineteen years old. who seeni?-?!
much IntTCHted In the ???'labble, went
down to th" bearh to investigate the
troubla Th?? trouble was ?iiiicUly settled
by the men unanimously agreeing to give
the garter to her.

whether or not he will accept the post
Borne of the Nebra?k?in'v fri r.d., say he
Is extremely anxious to hSOSBSl Secretary
Of State under Mr. Wilson and would
accept with little coaxing. Other and
Bisse friends assert that Bryan ?Imply
wants the offer, but under no clrcurn
?tances will he accept. They say that a.I
h? wants is recosnltlon of his leadership
by Mr. Wilson, and, having received this,
hg will at gaee pince his services at the
disposal of Mr. Wilson, not as a sordid
offlceseeker, hut as the Democratic lead?

Tn the latter capacity, it Is pointed out,
he will have a greater opportunity to
work for his own nomination In 11*16. Be
will be free to criticise mistake? of the
Wilson administration, and to point em?
phatically to the plank in the Democratic
platform which pledges the coming occu?
