Tbe lack of an appropriation from which
to pay tho expenses of fitting tbe cruiser
Chicago with new machinery will lose to

part of her present battery, will be retained,
but ten five-inch raptd-flre guns win be sub

Tho Chicago was one of the four vessels,
the others being the Boston, Atlanta and
Dolphin, which marked tbe rennalsance, so
to speak, of the new Navy. This quartet
of ships were the first to be constructed
wholly of steel. They were built by John
Roach & Sons, at Chester, Pa.
The historic old wooden covette Hart
ford, which is now at the Mare Island navy
yard, and which It is purposed practically
to rebuild and fit out with thirteen 5-lncb
rapid-fire guns, will not be in commission
for several jears.
As In the case of the Chicago, a special
appropriation by Congress la needed to de
fray the expenses of converting her Into a
modern man-of-war, and if tho money be
voted next winter It will not be available
until the first of the following July. It Is
estimated that two years will be required
to make her available for cruising purposes.

The Berbers, who were driven to the
frontiers when (he Arabs came Into north
ern Africa, suffer constantly from petty
wars among tbe tribes. One method often
resorted to is to dig a trench and divert
a stream until It reaches the walls of the
besieged habitation, where the poor na
tive concrete Is unable to withstand the
action, and tbe whole house crumbles
about the beads of those living within. No
quarter Is given among tbe men, and all
male prisoners of an age suitable to car
rying a gun are stabbed to death with the
booked daggers that every native carries.
The women, however, are seldom. If ever,
molested, and in this respect the Berbers
are far above the Arabs, one of whose
incentives to warfare is tbe desire of ob
taining possession of tbe' women.

Sin of Eating.
There is a sin of eating as of drinking.
The difference Is one ot both degree and
effect. It is true, yet a glutton Is a sinner.
Dumas claims that Eve's sin was an inor
dinate love of eating. It cannot be denied
that the foundation of much disease Is'
laid in I ntemperate eating, which not only
brings' a train of evils on the gourmand,
but occasions Inconvenience and addi
tional burdens on those who most provide,
satlsnTctlon for an everlasting "appetite,
whose owner Is Invariably a growler.' -
The largest failure probably of tbe United
States Fish Commission Is to be found In
tbe fishway at tbe Erandly picturesque
Great Falls of the Potomac, fourteen miles
above Washington. The government, upon
the recommendation of theFlshCommlssIon
officials, has spent $74,000 there and the
people have never profited one cent as a
result of tbe work.
Whether the fishway will ever be com
pleted 'Is very problematic. The reason
given Is that there bas been lack of money,
but the gentlemen in charge ot tbe Commis
sion have found money for various other
projects begun long after the fishway.
In the last edition of the British Encyclo
pedia, published over ten years ago, Dr.
Brown Goode says of improving rivers as
habitations for fish: "Obstructions, such
by tbe use of fish ladders. Tbe salmon bas
profited much by those devices in Europe,
and tbe immense dams in American rivers
will doubtless be passabl c even for shndand
alewives If the newsjstein of fishway con
strue tion now being be applied ontbeSavan
nab, James, Potomac and other large
rivers fulfills 1U present promise of success."
That upon the Potomac does not appear to
have been fulfilled.
In the report from the commission In 1 882,
thedescrlptlon of this new system Is entered
upon quite fully and illustrations aro fur
nished to show how -Ihe work is to be
accomplished. The plan Is, in its general
outline, ery simple. A runway Inclined
from the top of the dam like a huge cellar
door lies in tbe middle of the stream. Its
surface Is divided into six channels by five
beams about a foot square. The length
of the beams is the same as that of the
fishway or section, about forty feet.
Down the channels flour., the water at an
anidc. of about fifteen degrees with the
horizon. In each channel is a tirics of
obstructions turning the current back
upon Itself and by .friction so retarding
the swlftness6T theCflow aslo make it
possible for the rish la dart up the way and
gain tbe comparatively quiet pool above.
The old method of construction had been
to build a winding way BOO feet long for
a dam ten feet high. The objection was
that the fish would lose their way in the
windings and the work Involved was too
great. It was hoped' thnt the new system
would permit the construction of light ways
of boards which mlghttJbe removed whea
the fish were not running and put ui dcr
shelter to preserve ;than.
It was believed that by the use of these
ways the extensive fisheries for vhitc shad
might be re--stablkihed, which had In
early days employed " large numbers ot
persons On tbe streams empijlng into tbe
Chesapeake' Theibultdlniri of dams.,had
destroyed the business. "On July IB; 1882,
Congress made an appropriation of $00,
000 for the construction ot six fish ways.
or six sect'ons of a fishway, at Great
Falls. A contract waaletand several parts
of the work was completed, only to be
carried away later by an overflow.
Later the work, was renewed under tbe
direction ot tbe War Department, and
again It was swept away. Another ap
propriation. $24,000- this time, was se
cured, and in 1891 plnns were drawn at
the War Department and a contract was
let to Isaac II.-Hatbaway, of Philadelphia,
to build tbe way. In the report of tbe
Commissioner for 1892 he says that work
was begun In July, 1891 . and sections 4,
5 and G were completed within that year.
Subsequently two more sections were
built The sections are numbered from the
aqueduct dam down, and all were finished
except the upper or first, which shojld
carry the fish over the main dam. Abuge
wall of masonry runs out below tbe dam
showing wbere work was begun. Then
operations were abandoned. Was It simply
for lack of money or had confidence in the
new system run short?
Tbe five sections of the way or the five
fishways, arc very solidly built and stood
there in tbe middle of the Potomac bed
when vielted ycsterJay by a Times reporter,
a huge monumcnKo somebody's mistake or
somebody's Incompetency. The bushes are
beginning to reach out to them from both
skies and the drift has culle tctl on the
little darns that flank tbe largest and mosf
obvious. WhsJicr any fish have ever come
up the ways already built could not be
learned, it is certain none have ever gone
over tbe big dam in section 1 of the way
which Is as yet on paper in the chief
engineer's office In the War Department.
In answer to'a Times' reporter's ques
tions yesterday Acting Commissioner Gill
said that he did not know whether the
fishways Built according to thnnew system
on tbe Janice and on the Delaware bad been
successful or not. No effort bad been
made to complete way at Great Falls for
several years because the appropriation had
not been sufficient. Very little attention
had been given to it because It was not
thought to be possible to secure the money
As to recent statements that the Commis
sion is little more than a feeder to the Na
tional MuEeum, he sald.no specimens were
ever sent to the Museum till after they had
been used by tbe Commission for tbe pur
pose for which selected. Some assistants
ot the Commission were employed In the
museum. No specimens were sent to col
leges. That was wholly the work of the
Museum though, otxourse, material gath-
ered by the Commlsstonageuts still retained
the Commission's la-belcwhen forwarded.
The collections of xhe -Commission when
used went to IbcUuseunraccordlng to a well
known act of Congress.) He simply smiled
at the statement that over half the money of
the Commission was spent in making scien
tific collections, as being absurd.

From tbe Uoston Herald.
Tbe fish story of Ananias Is not sus
taining bis reputation this summer, and
the watermelon Ananias is rapidly push
ing him from his well-earned and long-held
position. Accounts of incredible melons
rush In restless waves from the South,
while the season has brought forth a
solitary story of a wonderful catch of
fish, and that ten-pound brook trout has
not as much as shown bis nose up to date.
A gentleman by tbe name or F. II. Caf
fey, of Haynevlile, Lowndes County, Ala..
has come to the front as the hero of the
cbampion melon novelette. It is stated
that he pulled a watermelon from his
patch during the session or tbe Baptist
Association at Hayncville which tipped
the beam at seventy-three pounds. It Is
said to have been cut and set before twenty-eight
delegates and visitors to tbe as
sociation, and after tbelr appetites had
been fully gratified the report Is that
there was enough left for a half dozen
more melon muncbers. As Mr. Caffey's
portrait does not accompany the account
In tbe local newspaper, there is every
reason to believe that he Is a injth and
the story an ananlasbm.
Or course, this melon will be cast into
the shade at once by a melon of still
greater size, and tbere Is a strong likeh
bcoj that the business will not stop be
fore a hundred-pojnd production comes
to the front. The Georgia gooseberry
that weighed fourteen and three-quarter
ounces knocks this Carrey melon sky high
