ON. THE SEft
Great Breaking Up of Ice On
WARNINGS FOR MARINERS
Interesting Work of the Hy drographic
Office Shigs Menaced by the
Huge Frozen Masses.
The reports ot the Hydrographic office of
the Navy Department show a very unuhu
ally large number or icebergs sighted t!iis
year in the North Atlantic, llr. Robert E.
Lerch or the Meteorological division, who
has charge or the record of reports in re
gard to such matters, said lie had never
known, in the eight years or his service,
anything like so many.
It is proliably too early to say, hut
there Is a jjrosrect or a repetition or the
great breaking up or ice on the east
coast or Greenland in 1817. At that time
vaBt fields or ice -were loosened from their
moorings and swung out into the open
sea and drifted southward till ti.ey reached
the Guir stream, and even waters farther
south, by which they were gradually eaten
The se-a was opened along the Fouthenbt
or Greenland in a way that was never
berore known and interest In Arptic ex
ploration Ava.i revived. It washojed that
the much taikcd-of Northwest passage
would Ik? Icniud after no much ice had
come away, leaving untiarrcd hcawnys
that iiad never been practicable within
the traditions of the natlcs.
A. hasty .search does not reveal any
record of a similar breaking loose of ice
in the Northern Hemisphere from that time
to this. In Antarctic seas there were evi
dences of the loosening of the ice fields
and bergs about the Southern ice-cap in
1S32, and again in 1854 and 1655. The
icebergs in tnese regions are much larger
at all times than in the North A fan tic,

Reports on Icebergs have been made only
for about ten years past, and it is only.,
in the iiast five ji-ars that any careful
attempt has been made to do the work
systematically ami efficiently.
There is now published by the Hydro
graphic Office under Commander Charles
D. Sigsbee. the Hjdrographic Bulletin,
which shows contributions from scores of
captains and higher officers or ships tell
ing of olift ructions and other things un
usual they have encountered on tt:eir lat
trips. It is a Fleet about the size of an
RETURNS FROM SHITS.
The latest iKsue. No. 350, of date of
May 15. contains the rollowing headings:
"Reports Along the Coast;" "Derelict.
"Wreckage. Etc.;" "Ice Reports," and
"New Signal Letters."
It summarizes the returns from nearly fC
A Gigantic Berg.
Hundred ships. Of these, in the present
Issue about a third are of ice fields and
Icebergs. This bulletin is now Sent every
week u about 2,200 ship officers and cap
tains, who regularly contribute to its col
umns. No charge is made for It.
Beside this weekly bulletin the office
issues a monthly pilot chait. which Is of
great assistance in navigation. It gives
the prevailing tvlnds and currents over the
ocean, the normal state of the barometer
and other information of Uiat character.
It shows the track of typical storms and
locates graphically the positions or derelict
ships and of Ice when last seen.
In addition there is appended v fore
cast In general terms of what weathnr
may be expected on the North Atlantic Tor
the ensuing month, as well as the review
of the past month. The mostra vored routes
lor crossing the Atlantic are shown and
lines of travel in every direction are given
together with the best points for crossing
the equator. A similar chart is also sent
out for the Pacific.
From these publications the intelligent
mid observant mariner learns much that
; ives him skill in his calling. If, on
j assing the ciand banks of Newfoundland,
rnr example, he notices his thermometer and
bis barometer to behave in an unusual man
ner, and then, when lie comes into port,
finds from the chart or the bulletin that
there was a bfg storm near -where he
noticed the phenomenal movements of the
mercury on the date of his observations, he
can be sure that his instruments were af
fected by the approach of the storm, al
though he was never near enoucb to see
any of its effects la the air or on the sea.
Ke will know- next time "what the mean-
ing of the changes in his readings and
govern himself accordingly.
Along with the pilot chart there is
usually a mapfchcwingsomespeclalfeature
of the work of the orric'e. For instance,
in a recent issue there was a graphic repre
sentation of alt March storms reported in
the past five years.
A. third publication by the orricc Is its
"Notes to alariners." This does not give
informat ion about the North Atlantic alone
but covers reports from all parts of the
"wnrld. Its principal function is to ad
vise mariners of changes in lights, buoyage,
etc., at all harbors and at points of danger.
The bulletin of iluy 13 shows reports of
icebergs and ice fields and floes, sent in by
firty-?ight vessels. The season opened
late, but since tho first these reports of
Ice'hnvrbeen exceedingly numerous. They
show that the ice is now -working its way
around the sov-thcastorn portion of New
foundland toward the Halifax.

In a report not yet published. Capt. Braes
of the State of Culifomin says that he

This gives the largest yet reported this

Incipient stage, and, should present an

deferred, will early develop Into, a reality
to which every citizen may point with
pride. It has made rapid strides in five
years, ami in the experience of the past
two summers, there has been laid the foun

The beach was the product of an enter

of Mr. W. X. Stevens, its superintendent,
whose services have been Jreely given,

The beach is not what it is designed to

present site, with its bath houses and ac

what it will be by the grace 'of Congress
and the District Commissioners, as rep

HUMBLE IN ORIGIN.
This waterside resort had an humble J
beginning, as have had many other greater 1
enterprises. The necessity rpr such a
provision was lorccd upon Mr. Stevens'
attention by the mere fact tliaV he was
himself obliged to go a long distance for 1
an inferior open air bath, and he. set
about to solve the problem."
He searched the river shore from George
town to Anacostla seeking-! suitable lo- J
cation, and after a survey of the entire
field he came to the coiiclhslon that there i
was nowhere an eligible site excepting at j
the one point which he finally selected 1
for the experiment, near the loot or"j
Seventeenth street. 1

The "saving clause" was introduced,
however, for Col, Haines promised that the
police should not interfere, and he kept
his word. That is the beginning of Hie

In the third year Congress was ap

anci compneu. xne use 01 ouu ieet or the
river front was also granted, and real
work was begun. Grading was done, rocks
cleared away, and 1,000 cubic yards
or sand, purchased at a cost of SGC0, were
dumped upon the beach bottom.
Five hundred feet of space, graded and
sanded, and 100 bath houses, with ac
ommodations for twice that number of
bathers, came out of the previous barren

of the colored patrons of the beach. They
were not-only satisfied, but really pre
ferred the arrangement that was per
mitted for awhile to shake the foundations
of the governmental structure.
In the beginning or the struggle for per
petuity the management was obliged to
scheme for funds, and among (he devices
for securing public aid was the giving of
an entertainment of a literary and musical
character. It was one of the test or its
kind Willi which the city Jms ever been
regaled, hut (lie result was not encourag

and a failure df The projectors to have its
mission fairly understood, the enterprise
fell short of meeting expenses by as much
as $14, and Mx. Stevens footed the loss.

not be executed this year. The adoption

provision is made rtirbctter disposal of the

a dam built acros the mouth of the inner

necessary, or, what is equally weil, to have
a gale put in t the mouth and omit the
