the Republican Convention should have
given him another term, has too much re

Democratic chestnuts out of the fire in Re

An Electric Bell Used to Give Warnlne
Against the Police.
Sergeant Spillane and his squad have
pretty effectually suppressed gambling in
Chinatown, but they have had suspicions
that several games were in active operations
in Fish alley, which runs between Kearny
aud Dupont streets, from Jackson to Wash
Yesterday morning while the squad was
passing through the alley a bell was heard
ringing. The sound was quite familiar, as
they had heard it many times before. Spil
lane bad long since become convinced that
it was an alarm signal to give warning to the
gamblers of the approach of the police.
They made a search while the bell was
yet ringing, and found it In front of a
butcher-shop. Tracing the wire that was
attached to it, they were led to the roof of
the house at the northwest corner of the
alley and Washington street, and there they
found the button that touched the bell off.
Another wire was found to lead to a door
way on Dupont street, near Jackson.
By this arrangement the police could not
enter either end of the alley without the
alarm being sounded. The bell and wires
were seized and taken away, and last even
ing the entire squad raided the alley, but no
games were found, The gamblers were
aware that the apparatus bad been removed,
and bad wisely refrained from gaming until
other means of giving signals arc adopted.

The owner of these highly colored shreds

60, with a shock of matted gray hair, He
was only half awake when he reached the

disappear in the arms of the dog-pirate he
let loose an agonizing yell of despair that
might have resembled the cry of a tigress

savage roar that bid fair to rent the heavens

shot and shook off his assailant, who at
once seized the whining cur and was bear

catcher, re-enforced by an assistant, gave
chase and rtuok the old fellow before he

Then began a petty tug-of-war. The
owner of the scarlet smalls stood with his
limbs apart, bis arms tightly folded around
the yellow cur, that with its head resting
against its master's hairy breast gave vent to
a series of piteous yelps and cries. The
classic gentleman who is said to have defied

costuming are concerned. During the strug

imminent danger of slipping downward,

situation. Whether the old fellow saved the

Fat Men Who Never Find It Too
Wet to Eat Clams.
It was pretty wet yesterday, but not too
wet for tlie Fat Men's Association to eat
clams. The fat men have been eating clams
once each summer for the past twenty-four
yeais. They said they didn't feel the rain
at all, but before the day was over they had
to wet their corpulent persons inside pretty
thoroughly to counteract the effect of the
The fat m?n ate th ir clams at Bridgeport,
down by the Sound shore, in Sherwood's
Pavilion in Seaside Park. The town was
full of fat men from early morning, and the
horses that draw the jigger cars from the
railroad station to the park had more than
one load that exceeded their past experi
ences. President D. B. Lockwood had to
make several efforts to git through the door
of the jigger. The President weighs 367
pounds. But Secretary P. Murphy of West
pert, who weighs 306 pounds, pushed him
from without, and Cracker Manufacturer
A. W. Wallace, a light-weight of 220, pulled
bim from within, and he finally got through.
There was a hitch about the dinner, so the
association withdrew to Bowen's Pavilion,
next door, and held a business meeting.
President Lockwood presided, and, ac
cording to the New York Sun, he occupied
two chairs. There was a great deal of con
fusion at Ibe meeting, because the Secretary'
persisted in Idling funny stories, which
made the other lat men laugh. The Presi
dent's address was listened to with attention.
He said : "it has grieved me greatly of late
to note the steady decline of fatness in this
country. The grand 500-potiDders of half a
century ago are gone. Even 450-pounders
now are scarce. Obe-ity is on tho decline.
Fat is falling off. Fellow fat men, something
most be done. We must discover tbe cause
of the accumulation oi fat upon our own per
sons in order that we may suggest to others
the proper remedy for the growhlg evil oi
leanness. Down with anti-fat mixtures!
Down wit h treatments and Ireadiug-iuiicliiues !
They must go."
President Lock wood's remarks were greeted
rapturously, and the meeting proceeded. It
took an Hour to elect a new board of officers.
The Board of Officers weighed .'HBU pounds,
an average of 3BHM pounds. President Lock
wood endeavored to continue the meeting,
but Jack French, a Bridgeport stripling of
207 pounds, rose to a point of Older. "I've
sat here an hour and a half, Mr. Chairman,"
he shouted, "aud haven't had a drop to
drink. Now, I can stand most things,
but — -" Somebody here moved an adjourn
ment, and the fat men waddled to the pan
try, without waiting to pass the motion.
Here they would have made the fortune
of the Company who owned the slot weigh
ing machine had not the President jumped
on it and spoiled its usefulness. 'the ma
chine only weighed lolks under 300 pounds.
Jollity ceased when tbe fit men sat down
to dinner. There was hardly a word spoken
for neatly nn hour. Not a man looked up
from his plate and the heaps of clams in
front of him, except when lie wanted to find
something to put the shells in. In the course
of time they went out on the porch and or
dered more drinks. Then tie fit men
