The river front presented a lively ap
pearance from 10 to 1 o'clock yester
day. It was Labor Day, and lhe""various
ofganizatio'ns spent their outing at"re
Eorts down the Potomac. ' The excur
sion steamers did a thrifty business. It
is estimated that the Randall and Sam
uel J. Pcntz carried 9,000 people to
River View, and the Charles Macalester
tcok 4,000 to Marshall Hall, while the
Jane Moselcy had ' 70ft, passengers to

tain Edward Hayden, and the Plumber
Smith, Captain,SayJcr"Grceae, were the
first to bring oysters to the Washing
ton wharf this season. Both arrived
yesterday from Blackston Island, bring
ing about 100 bushels each. It is not
expected that many of the juicy bivalves
will arrive until a week or two later,
as the dredging season is yet too young
and the "Acalher too warm. Old river
men say that oysters this season should
be exceptionally toothsome, as there has
been plcntv ot rain to freshen the salt
water. Too much salt makes the oyster
The watermelon season is now at its
height and Potomac River boats are do
ing a lively business bringing them to
this port. It is estimated that during
the past three weeks S00.00O melons have
been unloaded here. Yesterday there
were more tlian 20,000. Two boats brought
a cargo ot 7,000 each. Nearly all of the
melons arc now coming from Somerset,
Dorchester and Wicomico counties, on
tho Eastern Shore of Maryland. This
section produces melons that for flavor
cannot be surpassed by any part of the
Shipments of fuel wood to Washing
ton are said to be lighter this season
than for many years past. This is not
because there is less used, but because
the production is much less. However,
there has been no material change in
price. Much of the wood brought here
Is from the neighborhood of Colonial
Beach. It Is of high grade, and finds

has been an adequate supply of all kinds
of food of the finny kind popular In this

Between Four and Flve'Xhousand Peo
ple Attended Prize Athletics
Between four and five thousand peo
ple attended the annual 'Labor Day ex
cursion of District Assembly CC, Knights

The people began going in throngs as
early as 10:30 o'clock In the morning,
and the steamer Charles Macalaster was
loaded on every trip, the last return
voyage landing the last passengers at
Seventh Street wharf at"12:'"0 a. m.
It was a typical holiday crowd, f;ood
natural, individually forbearing in the
matter of trodden toes, and collectively
bent on having n good time. Many peo
ple carried baskets with thm and pic
nicked on the ground, although there
was no "dearth of places where refresh
ments might be had.
All the events but the ball game and
Cakewalk were pulled as per sched
ule. The pij chase was one of the
most amusing events of the day, the
elusive porker, liberally anointed with
the lard of a possible ancestor, being
captured after a hard chase by Myron
iount, 2114 Thirteenth Street north
west, that young man receiving the re
ward of $1.50.
The prizes for the winners of the
other sports were distributeu as fol

was destroyed and out of operation for
twelve hours. This was no material
loss, as movements ot vessels of the
fleet in that vicinity were reported
promptly from other stations.
Heavy Battle Fought.
Late tonight a heavy battle was
fought. The Auranlan fleet in attempt
ing to force the race off Fisher's Island
hare been repulsed after the sinking of
two ships. The latest report received
at General MacArthur's headquarters Is
that all but two of the vessels were
withdrawn. General MacArthur left on
the Kanawha at 11 o'clock for the scene
of engagement. From 10:25 until five
minutes before 11 there was a continu
ous roar of heavy artillery from the
guns at Forts Wright, MIchle, and Ter
ry. The steady firing showed that the
heavy guns were in action, while the
quick firing indicated that C-inch and
rapid-fire guns were also used.
Almost within a few minutes after
the firing began news was received at
hcaduaqrtcrs that an effort was being
.nade to force the race. It was apparent
that only a part of Rear Admiral Hlg
ginson's fleet al tempted to make the
paspige. Whit vessels were engaged
cannot be ascertained at this hour.
0 Report of Engagement.
The first report from Colonel Davis at
Fort Wright came by telephone. It was
"The fleet has engaged Forts Wright.
JHIchlo, and Terry; trying to force pas
sage of race."
" A later message came shortly before
11-io'clock. It was as follows:

CRUSADE OF SECRETARY
SHA HAS BROADENED
"Two Hat Alan" Is Barred
From His Usual Haunts.
This Recent Discovery Is Being Placed
on Par With "Sporty Man"
Not only the "sporty" clerk and the
slow payer have received their ultima
tum at the Treasury Department to de
sist from their old practices, but an
other individual has been added to, the
list of those who have fallen under the
ban of the Secretary. This time It is
"the two-hat man."
The chief thing about him to dis
tinguish him from others of the hu
man kind is the possession of an abnor
mal thirst, one of the kind that is in
evidence at all times, Another thing
he docs is frequent the "bucket s"hops"
and watch the quotations go up on
stocks. He docs not wear two hats all
tho time, but nearly all the time lie
has use for two pieces of head cover

Without them mi would suffer all the
horrors of an unnuenched thirst, or if
he quenched it he would be in danger
of losing his job. And he couldn't fol
low the fluctuations of "Sugar" and
"Copper." The possession of tho two
hats makes It possible for him to go out
during office hours without running Into
much danger of being "separated from
Whe.n tho clerk arrives at the office
in the morning he hangs his ordinary
hat ou a peg. It stays there until clos

said of the owner thereof. When the

walks out of the office, and two min
utes later he may be found standing at
the bar nearby, but he is not bareheaded.
Carries Folding Hat.
As scon as he emerges from the gran
ite pile where the money is stored in
great bales, he pulls a soft hat from
his pocket, adjus's it and is- prepared
to associate on terms of equality with
all mankind. If perchance, during his
absence, the boss comes along and asks
"Where is Jones" his fellow-clerks look
up and surmise that he is in one of the
other offices, us there is his hat on the
That answer has heretofore satisfied
the snooping superior, who has never
thought of the two-hat scheme until
within the last week. Now, 'however,
there is trouble for the two-hat men,
and It is dangerous for any of them
to be out of their seats even when It is
really necessary for them to go out on
official business. Secretary Shaw is after
them, even, as he is after those who
play poker or invent schemes for beating
the keepers of pool rooms.

Great Crowd Attends and Patronizes
the Many Stands, Contributing to
the General Revenue Times News
boys Band Tomorrow Night.
One of the prettiest lawn fetes ever
held in old Georgetown opened last
night upon the campus of Georgetown
University for the benefit ot tho uni
versity hospital. The extensive campus,
so often the scene of class rushes, snow
hall battles and "mud tussles," was
thronged with hundreds of pretty girls
and almost as many older persons. The
whole n'ace was tastefully and beauti
fully lighted and decorated.
One of the principal features of tho
evening was the concert by the United.
States Marine Band. A special stand
had been erected for the musicians, and
an extensive and highly pleasing pro
gram was rendered.
Although there were an unusually
large number of booths and refreshment
stands, they were so well arranged
about the large campus as to present no
appearance of crowding. Wjth a very
few exceptions, each of tlfse places was
presided over by a corps of charming
young ladies, who succeeded in making
every one feel entirely at homo. There
was almost no end to tho variety of at
tractions offered the seekers after pleas
ure and amusement. The visitor could
take his choice of sports from "throwing
at the babies" to tiding on the merry-
go-round cr swinging in the big swings.
And that the throngs who attended the
opening ot the lawn fete last evening.

The entire campus wasklighted by both
electricity and Japanese lanterns. A
complete circuit of poles had been ar
ranged "about the grounds and on these
the big arc lights were hung so that
there was an abundance of light,, while
not enough to destroy tho charming ef

merry-go-round completely captivated
the youngsters, who were present In
great numbers with their parents. And
It was also noticeable that not only the
children found great attraction In the
whirling animals; tho older folks ap
peared to enjoy the sport fully as much
as they did In their childhood days.
Many n lady or gentleman who climbed
upon the back of one of the wooden
steeds avowedly to merely "take care
of the children" apparently enjoyed the
spin as much, if not more, than the
youngsters themselves. The merry-go-round
