The ntcaeBt Day Travel Ever K ow on
the Itattroud Secnc nt Night
Nover was there so much railway travel
ovor tho Brooklyn Bridge ns yesterday morn
hug unless tho travel In tho afternoon was
greater The railway on Monday carried 160
335 passengers which was tho largest number
on record up to date but yesterdays travel U
believed to have been much
Iolorod o greater although
the flfures cannot yet be given The foot travel
on Monday was InBlguIQcant compared with
that of the opening day when I was about
189000 I was but 53709 yesterdays travel
doubtless exceeded this figure
aluro largely Many
thousands crossed from Brooklyn to Now York
still earlier but tho rush did not begin until
about OS AM when the promenade became
a moving races ot humanity while trains dis
charged at the Now York end of the bridge
from tour to five hundred pn 8engora every
one and a half minutes They discharged
them indeed too font for the capacities of the
platform and for nn hour or more tho Brook
lynltos had to struggle In succession to get oft
their bridge and make good their foothold on
Now York soil Between the fight for tickets
at the beginning of tho bridge and this strug
gle at tbo end clothing was mussed If not torn
Tho promfanndor had nn castor time of it as
there worn not so many of thorn In proportion
to the space they bad to move In I
The rush and struggle were repented in an I
exaggerated form In tho afternoon for the
crowd both in tho and the
promenade on rail
way platform was moro denso owing to tho
people crossing not being distributed over co
much time Apparently the sale number who
crossed In the course of throB bourn In the
morning had tried to get buck In the course of I
less than half that time In the afternoon Bo
great was tho crowd that the proihenade and i
tIle south driveway had to be thrown open to

The bridge travel was estimated at 190000
each way Tho ferries brought In ovor 300000
and probably handled nearly 700000 The rail

Fortunately for those people there was at

American u Hue Christian without guile
whoso Intolllconcu without perhaps being
what might bo called of the highest order was

rare quality of good sense and with a super
human disinterest for self The speaker paid
n glowing tribute to the memory of Washing

AIIInloHc Maple and the ForcotCen Ormya
of the first Treasurer or toe TJnlted State
HOXESDALE Pn April 30It would have
been an appropriate thing to have had among
tbo relics and reminders of Washington and
his time that the centennial celebration of his
Inauguration has brought to light If some ono
had only thought of an old maple tree that
stands In the northeastern corner of Pennsyl
vania and had procured at least a branch ol It
It was from the sap of that tree that the first
maPle sugar used in Washingtons executive
household was made Samuel Preston of Phila
delphia and n former Mayor of that city bad
como up into northeastern Ponnsylvanla to
survey into lots a vast tract of land that Robert
Morris Benjamin Bush Samuel Meredith and
other famous PhiladelphIans of the last cen
tury bad purchased Preston liked the region
although it was an almost unbroken wilder
ness and settled there in what Is now Preston
townshlpWayno county There wore splendid
groves of maples on his tract In the spring
of 1790 bo tapped one of the trees and mado
from its gap a quantity of maple sugar lie
sent a portion of the sugar on a raft down the
Delaware to Philadelphia as a present to Rob
ert Morris Morris forwarded it to President
Washington In New York The first President
used It in his executive household and wrote
a letter to Robert Morris thanking him and
Preston for tbo gift and highly praising the
quality of the sugar That letter is still pre
served by the descendants of Samuel Preston
The maple tree is still standing fresh and vig
orous and has yielded sap for sugarmaking
every year since 1700 having made its one
hundredth flow this spring The old treo from
nil appearances is good for another centurys
This centennial year ought also to be a good
time for people to know that the remains of
ono ot Washingtons first appointees a no loss
