SALT WATER FISHING WILL OFFER ANGLERS BEST SPORT FOR NEXT TEN DAYS
UTTLE JUST NOW,

They Can Be Caught in the
Shallow Places This
By UCK PKKD.
Salt water fishing should be at Its
beat for the next ten days. The full
moon of August has long been noted
for salt water trout fishing when
there are no storms to interfere with
the sport. Night time under the big
moon Is said by many to be better
than daylight, and at feast has relief
from the hot sun to commend it.
If you go take some bait or make
doubly sure of obtaining it from
your boatman, as there Is a scarcity
of both crabs and shrimp around the

to expect today, but the rivers are
clearing, and if more hard rains do
not fall they should afford black
bass fishing in a few days.
Arthur Surguy tells a story that
should prove a good tip to the Maryland
fish and game warden. While
visiting near Frederick several
weeks ago one of his host's neighbors
invited Surguy to go fishing,
and told of a catch of more than
eighty bass taken a few days before.
The invitation was accepted, but
when the countryman showed up
next morning with a roll of seine as
big as a barrel the ?nr?m?n declined
to be a party to breaking the

In Police Court yesterday Charles

driving of a taxi on the night
of April 17. last, which resulted in
injuries to follceman Frank M.
Howard, of thf Second fc>recinct. and
Harry L. Hess, of the Interstate
Commerce Commission, was fined
$100 in each case of assault. Both
men are said to be permanently injured*.
The testimony showed that the
policeman and Hess were crossing
Fourteenth street near P northwest
and were struck while on the west
side of the street. The policeman,
it is claimed, was hurled eighty feet
along the tracks, narrowly escaping
the wheels of a northbound street
Hess was thrown forty feet and
remained unconscious for three
At the trial it developed that
Spillman was driving on the northbound
tracks although going south.
He chose the middle of the street,
he explained, in order to get better
traction on the bricks between
the car tracks.
The speed of the machine at the
time of the accident was estimated
to be between 25 and 40 miles an
hour. It was raining but three
passengers in the taxi admitted
that they saw ^he men before they
were run down. Spillman insisted j
that he did not see them until after i
they were struck.
On motion of the counsel for |
Spillman, Judge McMahon with- |
held orders to the clerk to collect j
the fine until August 19, when a bill j
of exceptions will be submitted.
