Atlantic City. N. J. Aug. 2 <Speclal>.-"Artistic"
sketching on the sand is becoming one of the feat
ures of this resorv anfl nearly every youngster in
the city that can draw a straight line or a clrc
is engaged In the pastime-not for pleasure or his
health but for that whirh he can by his ingenuity
induce the peoDle that walk along the promenade
to give up to him. It is a favorite scheme with
every youngster on the island, irrespective of color.
They mak< ■ sharp point to a stick and ihen wan
der to some portion of the b<-arh where there is a
fairly large crowd and begin their operations.
They combine their wits *Mi their ability, or lack
of It, to draw, and in a few minutes their sticks
have outlined several sketches, or, to be correct,
several caricatu.es of men in public life. Usually
their efforts are rewarded, for there is nothing so
gullible as the American public, and this the boys
have learned t. their profit and satisfaction. In
the course of a short time the lads have secured
enough money to keep them in candy or any other
little luxuries t;i-v may want for the day. and
they go their way. to return again just as soon as
they are "broke." The real sand artist, the man
who moulds figt res out of the beach sand, is fast
becoming a hack number. The boys are supersed-
Ir.g him. and he will soon have to seek other fields
for his labors oi pet Into some other vocation that
will yield him as nice a profit without any harder
manual labor.
There is at least one jealous man in this city, and
he Is jealous sf the beach life guards. The other
day he sent a communication to one of the local
papers asking if it was the duty of the guards to
give swimming lessons to their women friends and
take them out rowing in o;its. It seems rather
etrang? that a life guard could not be "nice" to a
fair friend without exciting the envy of some per
son afflicted with that terrible disease known as
jealousy. It is very seldom that the life guards
condescend to take any one in their boats. As for
giving a swimming lesson, most of them are so
bashful that if a pretty young woman asked one
of them to teach her to swim he would have to
be carried to the hospital to recuperate. As a
rule, the life guards of this city are a fine lot of
men. and among the best and strongest swimmers
along the coast. The fact that there are so few
fatalities in the surf is a tribute to their prowess
and capabilities.
That Great Egg Harbor Inlet may eventually be
come as shallow and dangerous to navigation as
the Atlantic City Inlet is a matter that is caus
ing the people of Longpor: and Ocean City no little
concern. The broad inlet is now so shallow at low
tide that it is with considerable difficulty that the
boats of the West Jersey and Seashore Railroad
Company, which ply between Ocean City and Long
port, escape stranding. It has been suggested that
some of the government money which is now being
used to dig out little creeks in the interior, might
be employed to a better advantage if it were util
ized for the purpose of widening and deepening
the harbor there and at other places along the
Jersey coast, vhich would afford refuge for ves
sels when they are in need.
Of late there have been several fire extinguisher
agents in town making exhibitions of the ability of
their extinguishers to quench a fire. They have
built little huts along the beach, saturating them
with oil and setting fire to them. When they have
burned a little they have applied their device, and
have extinguished the blazes. Invariabiy they
have left the remains of the little huts standing.
Bathhouse owners and proprietors of the hotels
have complained to Mayor Stoy about the matter.
The Mayor has prohibited the erection of any
more booths or huts on the beach, and has als.i
said that any one caught throwing anything on
the beach that would endanger the safety ot build
ings by reason of fire or otherwise, or the safety
of the bathers, would ba anested and fined. The
beach front is kept ior the benefit of the thousands
of visitors to this resort -.t d the authorities have
decreed that nothing of my character likely to be
detrimental to the strand will be permitted to take
place there.
The manner in which the Chelsea Heights Land
Company has extended the limits of that island, on
which they have been working for the last year, by
the erection of bulkheads and the filling in of a
large section, suggests the possibility that if all
the landowners follow a like course there will
c-ventually be very little water between this city
and the mainland. Chelsea Heights is being ener
getically boomed. It is practically assured of a
trolley line, and there is some talk of having the
terminus of the Atlantic City road across the
meadows there.
It •ms almost humorous that a visitation so de
structive as the fire that occurred here last April
should becom<- a means of advertising the city, anil
perhaps, at least, paying a partial return for the
damapes suffered through the conflagration. It is
a. fact that the principal feature of the biograph
exhibition now going on at Riverview Park. Bal
timore. if a series of pictures of the beach front
blaze, and thousands of people go to see these
Allen Hall a member of the crew of the Atlantic
City Life Saving Station last season, recently
brought charges of neglect of duty against the
captain of the station, Timothy H. Parker. The
matter was investigated thoroughly, and this week
the board of survey which was appointed to investi
gate the case rer.d< its report ar.d completely
exonerated Captain Parker of the charges preferred
by Hall. Hali alleged that over a year ago the
captain failed to send the crew out In response to
signals of disttess which were displayed by a pass-
Ing vessel. Parker clearly and unquestionably
proved that the vessel was not in need of the as
sistance of the crew, and the matter was dropped
by discharging Hall. Captain Parker has been in
the service of the life saving station for twenty
three years, and eight years of that time has been
captain of the station. This was the first time in
his life that his judgment was ever questioned.
Some of the dentists in this city have been made
the victims of some sneak thieves who have been
working on the island for some ■weeks. The latter
part of last week Dr. J. J. Crandall had a patient
In the chair and was all ready to go ahead with the
filling of a tooth: He went into his laboratory to
get the gold filling, and found to his amazement
that some one had been there before him and
captured all his gold. He had to go out and borrow
from another dentist in the vicinity, and when he
got there he found tnat the other dentist had also
been visited by the ame parties the day preceding.
The latter, however, found out that his had b-t>n
sold to a local jeweller, and he got it back. The
office of Dr. Packard, at the corner nf Pennsylvania
and Atlantic ayes.. was also visited and gold tak«=-n.
None of the Instruments were taken; and it is be
lieved by the dentists that the thieves were dental
students. There was v.o clew to tholr identity.

Seabrignt. N. J., Aug. 2 (Special).— There's no
denying Jhe fact that hotels at Seabright are pop
ular. If it were not so they would not be crowded
with summer people all the while. July has been
exceedingly good— with its bad weather. The num
ber of visitors that have arrived dally looks as
though a greater Seabright would soon be a real
The week closing to-night has been a busy one.
The afternoon teas at the Beach Club attract
many, while the song recital by Mrs. Nathaniel
Scammon-Jone? at the summer home of Mrs. John
Jay Knox was one of the pleasant social affairs of
the week.
Polo, yachting and golfing were popular to-day.
They will continue to attract the cottagers until
the middle of September, and probably longer.
Commissioner of Public Accounts John C. Hertle,
of New-York, who baa been stopping at the Oc
tagon Hotel, left on Wednesday for Lake George
with his family.
Ex-Mayor Robert Van Wyek left to-day for
Saratoga. He will return later in the month and
finish his vacation at the Octagon Hotel.
Jacob H. Schiff and family have vacated their
Rumson Road cottage for a few days and are. en
joying a stay at Saranac Lake,.
Attorney General Robert H. McCarter, of New
ark, who is summering here, drives a fine team of
bays to a runabout.
Solomon Loeb and family will spend the remain
der of the summer at Saranac Lake.
Mr. and Mrs. George W. Robinson, who have been
spending- the fiiinrr.fr here, have sailed for Europe.
The attraction at the Octagon Hotel to-night
was the midsummer ball. Like all the social
gatherings held at this popular hostlery it was
well attended Gayety and festivity are th« order
of the day here and the guests of Hotel Norman
die-by-the-Sea have not been lacking in amuse
ment this week. The weather has not been ideal;
occasional showers have kept people indoors. Bath
ing is always popular with the guests, rain or
shine, and many girls of the place are to be seen
eijoying beavy downfalls- of rain. The hotel at
present is accommodating a large number of gruests
who are booked for the season
Mrs. K. Cheatham Johnston, formerly Miss Kitty
Cheatham. the- actress, arrived at Normandie-by
th -Sea on Wednesday with Mr. and Mrs. Clark

tember 1. Mrs. Johnston recently arrived from
abroad where sho sang ragtime coon songs.
A prize bowling tournament for the champion

Greenwood Lake. N. J.. Aug. 2 (Special.)— Three
fine days have cheered the hearts of hotel men and
visitors. They are trying to forget that July ever
existed. Everything Is astir to-day. Launches,
canoes, rowboats and all other craft are out for an
airing. The camps that have been washed so fre
quently of late are also out for an airing, and they
need It badly at that.
At the glens this morning: one would think a
regiment was departing for the front, and that
provisions were being provided for an extended
campaign. But it was only a repetition of the
Saturday laying in of supp.ies at the Ca6ino for
to-morrow's regular excursion. If to-morrow is
fine and warm, look out for a large crowd.
The fine bathing beach at the Brandon Hotel is
a great attraction. So are the bowling alleys.
Every one. Including the fair sex. enjoys bowling.
At this house to-night there will be a hop.
The late arrivals are:
Brandon House— Mr. ar.d Mrs. Charles A. Smith
and child, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Smith, Mr. and
Mn A. Hall. W. A. Hllderbrant. Mr. and Mrs J.

Ridg. wood, N. J.
Monmouth Beach. N. J.. Auk. 2 (Special).— This re
sort is lively. When many of the neighboring re
sorts begin to wane Monmouth Beach Is still bright.
The Country Club is the centra of attraction. There
were three social gatherings there this week.
On Monday morning Mrs. T. B. Kent gave a card
party to about fifty women friends: on Thursday af
ternoon there was an open air concert, and this
evening there is a dance at the ciub.
The popularity of Monmouth Beach increases aa
the years come and go. With a new stone boule
vard, which is to be built next fall. th« place will
be more popular than ever, for nothing adds to the
popularity of any resort, more than good roads.
Owners of automobiles In this vicinity are much
wrought up over the way one or two of their num
ber have bten treated in various parts of the coun
ty. They allege that the ordinances arc unjust, and
that something should be done to establish a uni
form rate of speed over this section of the county.
The officials of Ocean Township, who govern
Monmouth Beach, have an ordinance in force which
says that "any owner of a horseless machine
caught driving faster than six miles an hour
sha.il be lined $30 or imprisoned thirty days, at the
discretion of the Judse." The cottagers think this
Is pretty harsh medicine, and most people agree
with them. The average speed of a bicycle rider Is
twice as fast, while the man on the box frequently
Etrikes a ten mile an hour clip, and even faster,
and nothing is said. But the "horseless" owner Is
jiulied up by an oliicer every time he goes faster
than six miles an hour. The conference between
the automobile owners will probably result in the
adopting of a uniform rate of spetd toeovern the
horseless muchui'-s at this place and throughout
the adjoining territory.
Golf is still the sport of tho hour since the results
at tennis have been made known. Cup contests will
be the attraction for the remainder of the season.
Another tennis tournament will be the attraction
at the Monmouth courts. There will be cup con
tests for both ladies" and men's singles and doubles.
Lake Hopatcong. X. J.. Aug 2 (Special).— This is
visitors' day at the lake. There are people who
come up from the city every Saturday to enjoy
Sunday with their families. Some come to Hopat
cong station, while others jump off at Mount Ar
lington and journey by the Chaplin line of stages.
To-morrow, according to the schedule, is to be a
big day here. The Jersey Central has a low rate
excursion that will disgorge at Nolans 1 olnt.
Mr. and Mrs. Ridabok. of Flushing, N. V.. will
have Mrs. and Miss Hicks and Mrs. Fuller, of
Flushing, here to-morrow. The Kdwanises will have
friends from New-York. Mr. and Mrs. Hollister,
of Long View, will have Mr. and Mrs. Nevins, of
Brooklyn, and the Misses Sinclair, her Dlecea, of
The Kureka Bowling «'lub. o' Newark, will send a
delegation up to-morrow to enjoy the day at the
lower end. , __ _

Asbury Park. N. J.. Aug. 2 (Special).— The ad
vance guard of the August crowd of vacationists
arrived to-day. The afternoon trains from the
metropolis were run in two sections, and every
train was filled to the limit with pleasure seekers.
The station officials estimate that the arrivals for
the day will aggregate fifteen thousand, by far the
largest number for any one day this season. Two
half-holiday excursions also arrived, consequently
the beach resorts were much alive with sightseers.
To-night there were fully thirty thousand prome
•nadera on the board walk. The uaua! Saturday
evening hops were given at the Ocean. Brunswick.
Coleman. Plaza, Monmouth. Columbia. Sunset Hall.
West End and Lafayette hotels, and in every In
stance the ballrooms and casinos were filled with
the devotees of Queen Terpsichore.
For several days the ocean at flood tide has been
unusually high, and at several points along the
beach the waves dash>«d over the board walk. The
heavy billows have cut away the beach in some
places, but no serious damage to the shore front
has been done, "id watermen say the tides on
Friday were the highest they have seen In five
years, and the unusual spectacle attracted thou-
Bands of sightseers to those points where the surf
was the roughest. The heavy seas will continue,
it is predicted, for thn next three or four days, or
until there Is a new moon.
The auction fad has become epidemic In the
Park. There are a dozen auction houses located
In and about Klngsley-st.. right in the heart of
the hotel district, and sales are conducted three
times dally. Sundays excepted. Those establish
ments are fitted up with easy chairs for patrons
and every afternoon and evening they are crowded
with cottagers ar.d hotel guests, who reve] in the
belief that they are buying Japanese brlc-a-bra<\
books, rugs and Jewelry much r..!,.w their real
worth. In the evening the sidewalks adjacent to
the auction shops nr.> Impassable. The dtj of
ficials attempted earlier In the season to rid the
resorts of the auctioneers by Imposing a prohibitive
license fee. but they discovered that such a pro
cedure would not be legal, so the old licenses were
retained. This resulted In nearly every vacant
store In Kingsley-Pt. being gobbled up by the
shrewd Orientals, who are coining money from
the summer visitors, who attend the sales every
day and night.
Proprietor Conover. of the. Colom.in House. Is
making great preparations for the San Toy cotil
lon, which Is booked for the evening of Tuesday.
August 12. Chinese and Japanese novelties will be
used in the figurr.s and favors, and the decorations
in the casino and about the hotel will smack of
the Orient. The participants In the affair will be
attired In Chinese and Japanese costumes, and the
scene promises to be unusually picturesque.
The Rev. S. Edward Young, of Plttsburg, who
was formerly the pastor of the Westminster
Presbyterian Church here, will revive the national
services in the beach auditorium to-morrow, when
he will preach and lecture on Palestine.
T. M. Donohue, of the New-York Tennis Club,
will retain th«> silver challenge cup he won last
summer in the tournament >>t the Anbury Park
Tennis flub. Donohue met R. ML KrookflVld. of
the University of Pennsylvania. In a closely con
tested match last evening, but managed to win out
The last set w«s the most warmly contested one
of th*> match, standing at 3—3, 4 — t and it— s, but
w.is finally won by Donohue. who reached seven
games. The women's first prize, a handsome silv.-r
cup, was won hy Mlsn Dunham, of Ooean Grove.
The women's second prize, a silver Jewel case, was
won by Miss Adele Borden. of Asbury Park, while
the women's first prize In doubles went to Miss
Helen E. Mills and Miss TtnrAmm

Tanned by exposure to the sun and invigorat
ing sea breezes, the officers and members of the
Old Guard, who have been enjoying a week in
camp on the grounds of the State Rifle Asso
ciation, at Sea Girt, N. J., returned to the city
last night. They were enthusiastic in their
praise of the courtesies extended them by Gen
eral Bird Spencer and the other officers of the
association, and pardonably proud of the records
they had made on the 200 and 500 yard ranges
while qualifying as marksmen and experts.
Those who have seen the Old Guardsmen In
full uniform at their ball in the Metropolitan
Opera House would scarcely have recognized
them in camp last week, for each man wore a
blue flannel shirt, khaki trousers and campaign
hat — a thoroughly soldierlike rig. In which they
shot on the ranges, played ping pong In the
clubhouse, which had been placed at their dis
posal, and lounged about their tents, enjoying
to the utmost the delightful weather and the
restful surroundings.
Nor was the social side of the week's outing
forgotten. It is well known that Old Guards
men are excellent hosts, but on Tuesday ni&ht
they were perforce the guests of the fair patrons
of the Avon Inn, who gave a grand ball in their
honor. With flags of every hue and clime, and
with stacks of swords and muskets, the Messrs,
Hamblen had adorned the halls and ballroom
of the big house, and at 10 o'clock, in column of
twos, led by Captain Robert P. Lyon, of Com
pany A. the men of the Old Guard, in white
ducks and fatigue blouses, marched twice around
the ballroom. Then they "broke rank?" and the
dancing began. Old Guard buttons make excel
lent hatpins, so thought their fair partners in
the dance, for there wasn't a button left on a
blouse when the gallant guardsmen drove away
for camp in the "wee sma' " hours.
Those who cordially entertained the Old
Guardsmen included Mr. and Mrs. John Lich
tenstein, Mr. and Mrs. Ball, Miss Ball. Mr. and
Mrs. Cook, Mr. and Mrs. William Brady, the
Misses Sullivan and Justice Fitzsimmons. These
and others drove over to camp on Friday to wit
ness the shooting and Inspect the Old Guard's
quarters. They were a dozen roomy hospital
tents loaned by the State Rifle Association, and
erected in a row close to the clubhouse, where
meals were served on the veranda.
When the Old Guard Rifle Club was organized,
last spring, with that veteran rifle shot Colonel
Leslie Bruce as its president, the members felt
sure that they would soon have an opportunity
for rifle practice. They were not disappointed,
for. with the co-operation of Major S. Ellis
Briggs, the commandant of the Old Guard, who
is also a good shot, and through the courtesy of
the New-Jersey State Rifle Association's offi
cers, plans were soon formed for the week at
Sea Girt, lo encourage shooting among the
members. Captain Charles Huestis offered a
handsome silver loving cup to the winner in the
special match, which whs shot on Friday, Au
gust 1.
In weather that was almost perfect for shoot-
Ing the officers and men made some excellent
scores on Friday at the 200 and 5<X) yard ranges
In the match for the Huestis Cup. After an ex
ceedingly close contest the cup was won by
Frederick Seybel, with Frank Baker second and
T. Timpson third.
The other entries were Major S. Ellis Briggs,
Colonel A. T. Holley. Dr. Robert Taylor, Lee
Townsend and H. Seifke. The match was shot
under the following conditions: Ten shots at 200
yards, standing, and ten shots at 500 yards,
prone, with Winchester rifles of .30 calibre and
government regulation sights. Contestants were
allowed ten minutes for practice shots before
beginning their score.
The match was shot under National Rifle As
sociation rules. The prizes were the Old Guard
trophy, to be held by the winner during the
year, and on which his name will be Inscribed,
and a smaller silver cup, to become the prop
erty of the winner. By order of Major S. Ellis
Briggs the following members were appointed a
committee to take charge of the match: Colonel
Lealla Bruce, Lieutenant Colonel Alfred T. Hol
ley, and Ordnance Sergeant Fred T. Alder.
It was also necessary for all the members to
Tunllfy as marksmen or experts, so every day,
before and after this match, they shot on the
2<>o and 500 yard ranges, with the following

Long Branch, N. J., Aug. 2 (Special).— opeu«
ing of August finds Long Branch enjoying its usual
patronage, though a number of cottagers and hotel
guests have hied themselves away to the moun
tains. Others, however, have come to take their
places, and the gay social life continues uninter
i The last week has been a little slow, compared
with the week preceding. This was to be expected.
Horse show week for many years has V°^n looked
upon as the best of the season, and this ye-r it was
no exception to the rule, even though the elements
were against the exhibition two days out of three.
The show of ISO 2, as The Tribune predicted, was
one of the best In Its history.
It is not known definitely whether or not the an
nual military tournament will materialize this sea
son. For several years it has been looked upon aa
second to the horse show. It waa at its best at the
Initial opening, about the time of the Spanish-
American War. The tournament opened with both
President McKlnley and Vice-Presldeot Hobart
present. Expressed patriotism at that time was at
high water mark, and the exhibition tcok lik* wild
The exhibition is not generally held until the third
week in August, however, and if the promoters In
tend to give a show this season they hava amola
time to consider the question seriously.
One thing is certain: The Monmouth caraJry
troop will give a burlesque circus on the horse
show grounds the second week in August. The ex
hibition will last two days, and from the pro
gramme that is being mapped out an Interesting
time can be expected. The second troop of cavalry
Is composed of m.embers living at Long Branch and.
Red Bank. The men have friends by the «cor 9,
and there Is every reason to believe that they win
give an exhibition that will be highly creditable la
every way. Among the things they Intend to ex
hibit is a stage coach, which 13 to be attacked by

to ride in the coach when it Is attacked.
There was a unique gathering at the Norwood
Park Casino last night. It was by far the moat
enjoyable affair at that resort. It was called an
"auction party," and the receipts went to the
Monmouth Memorial Hospital. The auction party
was in charge of Mrs. William D. Harper, tit*
superintendent of the hospital and one of its most
ardent workers. There were no end of amusements
along the coast this week. Probably one of tha
most attractive things in It was the garden party
of the Hollywood Hotel last night. These features
are attended by guests of the hotel and by cot
tagers who live at that pretty resort.
The cottagers have been having lots of fan this
week at Pleasure Bay. Between the open air opera
and the resorts where the luscious soft clam It
served, with all the "fixings." they have best 02
the go. One of the diversions is a launch rld» be
fore the opera, then a big dinner at one at U»
There will be many faces missed from tneir ttsnai
haunts for a week or ten days. The time oas sr
rived for a week's outing in the mountains. Qnita

All of the hotels have held their usual mMweei

also been the usual euchre and ping pong parties.
together with recitals, etc. The hoteU are enjoy
ing a splendid patronage, and all report their
August bookings ahead of last season.
The announcement that a special election would
be held this month has r.aturally aroused consider
able interest. The summer property owner! wfd
play a prominent part in it. The necessity of a new
charter to take the place of the antiquated one row
in operation is apparent to everybody, except, per
haps to a few politicians, who now hold fa: ornees
and would probably lose them under another char
ter The election wi!l be held in about three weeks.
There are those who Imagine that they wnl be
taxed a few dollars more on their properties »no
wi'.l use their best efforts to defeat the Project.
Then, as noted above, there are others who will
lose office. The opinion prevail, however, that tn^
majority of the conservative voters are In favor of
a new charter provided that exorbitant taxation
does not come with it. The committee oa charter
revision, however. Is composed of thinking men,
forty In number, who can be relied upon to recom
mend what is best for th» interest of all con-
Elbefon cottagers are enjoying life In a qufet
way. AsMa from the social pleasures that have
been held from time to time at the Elberon Hotel,
the cottaKers have been passing the summer
culetly. The Beach Club is popular w!th many,
who delight to take their morning dio In o i
Neptune while the church service at the three
summer houses of worship attracts many. The
library at Flberon Is a.so another feature or sum
mer life. While it has only teen In operation a few
years It is nevertheless growing In popularity all
the while There Is nothing selfish about the El
beron cottager. The summer library Is open tha
year round, the alt year residents enjoying the free
use of the books during th« fall and winter months.
The amateur circus held by the Elks of Peek*?:!
was so successful that the lodge expects to realize
about $1,509 tn addition to the expanses. A com
mittee of Elks Is now negotiating for a larsr^r tent
than the one used for the circus, as it is pro
posed to make the exhibition an annual affair.
