Tire, an Hall nearlBca Notvaaar..
One of the good things that the bicycle hsa
dono Is to suggest the use of poeumatlo tires on
baby carriages. For several years manufac
turers have been using eolld rubber tires on per
ambulators with great success, but even these
did not save Infanlhood from being bumped and
shaken up. Last year a Western concern put a
baby carriage with pneumatic tires on the mar
ket, and It took like hot cakes.
The tire luelf is a rrgulnr hoso-plpe tlru and
Is usrd un a wood-rlmtued wire wheel ur on a
wooden wheel. It can not Im usrd on errr
wlirel, as the rim must be especially groovod
jusla In thecaseof bUiclea. It measures not
nor. than an Inch In diameter, and l intlated
by means of a hand or foot pumu. The retail
cost of a set of wheels with pneumatla tires Is
from $1- to $10. and Judging by the happy ex
pression of the youngsters who own a set they
are cbeap athat prloe. This year sees atlll
another ImnPvsmsnt in baby carriages. This

A. Proposal to Make th. Btata Par for the
Damaa. Do, to Farm Crapa.
Acousta. Me., Jan. S3. If the bill Repre
sentative Hamilton of Mattawamkeag Intro
duced this week becomes a law the up-river
farmers will have a chance to sell their grow
ing crops to th. Stat, at a good profit. Mr.
Hamilton's bill Is torelmbnrse farmer for all
growing crops which are eaten by deer. The
selectmen of the towns In which the deer com
mit trespass are made Judges and appraisers,
and the money, though paid by the town, comes
directly from the State Tresanry, Iir this plan
a Portland taxpayer Is mails to settle for the
board of deer In Ox Dow, Molunkus, and other
communities. The farmers say that If the Htate
would l.t them shoot the deer they would ask
for uodamages. but they do not propose to board
whole herds for nothing,
'I ho Impression Is that Maine will hare lo pay
high board for It protected animals. The
selectmen or ossessois. who are the men to
anard damage, are friends of the suffering
farmers and will be likely to value the crops at
all they ar. worth. An the money Is to cum.
from the Stat. It will add but little lo laud taxa
tion. The outlook Is that many farmers will
sell their crop standing this year. They will
not only get their pay In cash at th highest
mark.t price, but th.y will also avoid the ex,
psnse of harvesting, bousln., and thrashing.

A Protest A.ata.t Not.I Fentor. nf th.
Ch.rt.r of Urtatar N.w York.
Amonc those who are Aniline fault with tho
Greater N.w York charter, nut any ar. making
more rigorous protest In proportion to their
numbers than tho market flsnermen, wbo earn
a livelihood by s.ttlnfr n.ts In tho waters of the
newly 4ennet city. In thnt part of the cnartor
which relnlcs "to harbor, port, mi J dock ad.
ministration," th. boundaries of the port are
defined as "the water of Notv York Bay to an-l
Including Quarantine, Ka.t Hhor, and Harlem
Hlver to Harlem bridge, and the waters of Lone
Island Sound lo Flushing Hay; the North or
Hudson Itlver to the city of Yonkers, and the
Kill ron Kull to Ehuter'. Island so far as tbp
same aro wltlilu the Jurisdiction of the Btate of
The troubles of the market fishermen ar.
found springing from the fact that net fishing
Is entirely prohibited within those waters, al
though under the Mate game laws shad and
herrlnir nets nro permitted In the bay and Hud.
son Klvrr at certain seasons and under certain
regulations. The catch U usually large and
profitable, and Is likely to Imprure as the sys
tem of restocking the Hudson with yearlings
In plao. of fry Is psrfecud.
Moit than that, these fishermen ore permitted
durlci restricted season to lake ballbsads,
catfish, auokers, eels, pickerel, sturgeon, white
and yellow perch In th. Hudson Itlrerbr means
of hoop n.ts, tikes, and till net the sturgeon to
be taken In nets of not less than 7lnch mesh.
And then there Is th. minor matter of taking
minnows used for bait. Minnows are oaotured
wltli nets also. All of this net flsbluglsto b.
abolished If th. Harbor prnrlslous of the new
charter stand as now printed.
More than this, the territory coT.red by the
new charter Includes Coooy Island Creek.
UraTeseiid Hay. Jamaica Hay, Ilarlun Hay.
rrlnre'a Hay. and Arthur Kill. Th. fishermen
sar that. If the charter Is to exclude net Ashing
In the harbor. It may eventually Do amended so
as to -exclude nets from all the city waters,
hyen the pleasure of slttlug In the sun wblle
ulloat on Jamaica Hay and scooping crabs from
the water with a hand net would then begone.
Assemblyman Henry S. Heerrs appears as
the spokesman for th. fishermen In a long
article In this wcek'a ruMuu Hnjftle He says
the waters In nuestlon supply a large partof th.
marketed catch of fish mentioned, and that the
contemplated prohibition would be a serious
Injury in fishermen, dealers, and oonsumers
alike. He protests that the regulation of
fishing In any waters of the btate Is
lironerly left wbero It is now found,
with the Legislature, and that the present
aame laws relating to net fishing In these waters
have not heretofore been considered lax. It Is
no part of a city government's province to reg.
ulate fishing, he saya, and he concludes "that
the commission which dratted the charter did
not contemplate auy such result." He believes
that "th. t'hart.r Commission Itself, on being
shown th. Impolicy anil InefDcaoT of the pro
posed Inhibition of n.tflshlnf, would consent to
strike It oat before It reached the Legislature."
