that acquaintance, but Mrs. Papo. wife of Dr.
Qotthold Pape, who la Mrs. Frechnkkt's land
lady 'and who lives In the upper part of tho
houso, did not. On Friday she spoko to Mrs.
Frechnlcht about it.
"You might find something better to do,"
Mrs. Pape said, If Mrs. Frechnlcht remembers
their talk aright. " than to run your head out
of tho window talking to folks noxt door that
have nothing bettor to do thnn talk. It Is not
what I expect of any tenant of mine."
Mrs. Frechnlcht replied with spirit that she
would talk to tho Reschors as much as wrs
pleasant to her. Sho added that when abo dis
covered that after every rainstorm water was
running into Mrs. Rescuer's kitchen from tho
back yard. Just as It was into her own, sho had
as much right to talk to Mrs. Rccher about It
as Mrs. Papo had to have tho leaks fixed f she
didn't llko to hear them talked about. Mrs.
Papo said nothing more, but on Wednesday tho
tenants of both houses wero awakened by ham
mering nnd sawing In front of the houso, and
by noon there was a fonco between tbo two
houses, reaching from tho area up to the
balcony of Mrs. Papo's house.
Late in the afternoon a group of small boys
came up to William Roscher, Mrs. Resetter's son,
on tho streot.
"Do you wnnt that fence to come down!"
asked thotr leador.
"I don't caro for it staying up," said young
"That's nil right." answered the boy with a
grin. Ho turned on his heel and went away,
and tho rest, Ukewiso grinning, followed. A
'ew minutes later thero was a bang llko tbo
boom of a big bass drum. Folks In both houses
ran to the door. A board In the new fence was
broken in half and the two ends stuck out all
askew. A big stono In tbo nreawav and n crowd
ot small boys scampering down the street gave
Mrs. Reseller told Mrs. Pnpo what tho neigh
borhood thought of thomattor. Mrs. Papewcnt
Indoors and gut n club nnd also her husband,
whoislamoand uscscrutchos. She brandished
tbo club, and sent her husband to tho pollen sta
tion for help. Whtlo she wns gone tho bovs
enmo back, nnd advanced to lay hands on tlio
fence. Mrs. Papo lunged at tho nearest with
her club. Ho seised It in both hands and swung
on it while t he other boys, free trom fear or tho
club.rlpped oft t ho tw o out-ddo planks. Mrs. Papo
dropped the club.Tlio j oung man at the othcrend
fell, recovered his bnlnncc, nnd began to batter
tho fenco with It. Mrs. Heschnraml her family
laughed aloud. Tho crowd in tho street cheered.
With a shriek of rage Mrs. Pope darted into the
houso and came out with a pall of water, which
f ho emptied over the boys. They screamed glee
fullv. "Gee!" they cried, "that's good! This is
swful hot work. Give us some more."
There is no telling what would havo happened
next If Dr. Papo had not reappeared with
Policeman Tim Young, who droo the bos
awny. As soon as he was gono tho boys
enmo back to tho fence. They brought
with them a twenty-foot piece of inch
rope, brand new. Nobody knows how they got
it. Thov looped it through the hole made by
tho board that was broken first and niado fast,
notwithstanding frequent lunges by Mrs. Pape
with ono of her husband's crutches. The boys
took hold of the end of tbo ropo and pulled, and
tho fenco enmo down with a rip and n roar.
Irishwomen from Second street swarmed upon
tho wreckage, fought over it, and bore it away
in pieces for firewood.
Mrs. Papo said last night that the Resellers and
Freehnechts were mistaken. The fence had
nothing to do with them, but was to strengthen
the balcony, becauso tho doctor w as growing so
fat. Sho admitted that it was rather tactless of
her to put It up when she did. She also said 'hit
she was going to "break" Pollccmnn Tim

Seldom has confiding Innocence been so shsme
fiilly . imposodupop.as tn the case of that y.pung
and flxxlni; politician, tho Hon. William Hulinr,
who has'repontlr been made a victim by a wlfV od
and scheming Long Island politician. Hence
forth tho rural gentlemen who como Into Jersey
City to .exchange their hard-won speclo for
satchels of neatly packed sawdust, sold with
spcclflo Instructions as to tlmo and place of
opening by smart gentlemen with diamond
scarf pins, will Und In Mr. Sulzer a. sympsthlilng
friend. Mr. Bnlxer has Just bought ono himself.
It was WlnfleM Bcott- Overton who doHvcrod
tho goods, and Jtho way la which he took In, the
boy Congressman from New York Is a matter to
rejoice the heart ot tbo Jovjal. Wlnfleld Bcott
Overton Is a Judge by courtesy, an editor by em
ployme.nt, and pretty much anything you please
or ho plooses In politics. At present he Is a
pronounced Sulxeritc, having espoused the causa
of tho eminent Fixzpop as soon as ho saw any
thing in It, and Congressman Sulzer is having a
hard life trying to anBwer questions from Long
Islanders who want to know the whereforeness
of Judge Overton's Indorsement by hire. For
Overton has always been1 more or less of a Re
publican, nnd is now conducting a Republi
can newspaper, with an occasional special
Sulzerlto column. This paper Is known as
tho Long Island Sound, and is published in
Whltestono, where Overton llvos. It was a
pronounced McKlnley" sheet, and Overton
wrote for It enthuslastlo editorials, at the
same time making equally enthuslastlo
speeches for freo silver In Long Island
City and this city, So that, whichever side
won, ho would havo a cbanco for the emolu
ments of victory. His namo did not appear
upon tho newspaper. That was ostensibly
owned and edited by a subordinate of bis, for
reasons connected with local politics and the
town printing, Overton having beon a member
of tho Hoard of Trustees of tho village. Rut It
is generally understood In Whitestone that ho
gets out tbo Iong Mand Sound, nor does he at
tempt to deuy this.
In addition to running a Republican nows
paper, Overton votes as a Republican. Ho took
part in the Republican primaries last fall and
this spring. Rut nothing particularly advan
tageous to him resulted, and hb became dis
couraged with Republicanism. Thero wasn't
enough In It, Casting about him for a more re
munerative form of political action, ho came
upon the Hon. William Sulzer. This happened
early tn tho suromor. For weeks all of Over
ton's energies. and talents wero employed in in
venting new ways of telling tho Hon. William
Sulzer what a great man the Hon. William
Sulzer was. had been, and Increasingly should
be. This he set forth personally and in bis Re
publican newspaper. It was very pleasant to
tho Harlem Fizzpop. He basked In the sunshine
of flattery, and eventually Invited Overton
to n festivity of tlitf Hoboken Turtle Club, where
Overton ate. drank, and was merry at his ex
pense. Rut on the morrow ho did not die. which
was tho worse Inck for tho Hon, William Sulzer.
There appeared In the Iing Island Sound a tale
of how Judge Overton hoa been entertained by
Congressman Sulzer. By this time the astute
Long Islander had decided on what he wanted.
He wanted to be on the Executive Committee ot
the Democratic-party for the borough of Oueens,
to which end he set about getting the Sulzer in
dorsement. FJattcrj" and lricenc won over the
guileless Sulzer. so that a few days ago the ap
pointment wns made through his influence.
As soon as the appointment wns n certainty
Mr. Overton acknowledge! it In his Republican
paper, referring to it as "political assistance
given to Mr. Overton " He also published a life
of the Hon. William Sulzer in big type.
3Ir. Sulzer received a ropy of this effusion,
which must have reminded hlra strongly of his
own literary style. About the strmo time ho
began to get interrogative letters from White
stone Democrats, who pined to know why the
editor of a Republican paper had been backed
by a free sliver Bryanlto Congressman. In ro
plv tooneof these letters ho wrote:
'I know JndgeOrerton scry well, nnd know
that he took very actlvo part In tho Demo
cratic campaign last fall, supported the Demo
cratic nominees nnd the principles ot the
Democratic partv loyally."
Moro letters wont to him telling him of Over
ton's record. Meantime Occrton's name was
quietly r-moved from the Republican rolls. But
he doesn't care. By virtue of his pull with tho
Hon. William Sulzer he Is enabled to be a Re
publican editor and a Democratic committee
man nt the samo time. Tho indications are that
he is enjoying the situation. The samo cannot
be sail of tho Hon. William Sulrer.
Overton was appointed one of the representa
tives of the borough of Queens in tho Confer
ence Committee made up of delegates from tho
sovcral boroughs of the Grciter New York to
determine tho basis of representation in tho
coming City Convention.

POROIES IX GREAT SCHOOLS.

aherlQItAro Aner the teamera.
RnooKUN, Mo., Aug. D, Enormous schools of
porglos have beon creasing and rippling tho
waters ot Penobscot Ray for two weeks. Tbo
boys who hod note bavo been out dipping thorn
by tho boatload and carrying them ashore to
food to pigs and hen, tho farraors havo seined
them by tho ton for fertilizer, and the old men
havo wagged their heads joyfully, saying that
the advent ot porglps always brings good times
Along with an oceanful of porglos havo como a
lot of predatory fish, which dash In among tho
illvef Shoals, scattering the porglos right and
loft, making great waves upon the dimpled bays
and leaving long- trails of blood to mark their
passage. Thero nro hake, haddock, cod, and
dogfish everywhere, and all are gorging them
selves and getting fat,
Tho porgles appeared, off Monhcgan and Mat
tinlcus about two weeks ago, turning tho blus
waters to silver nnd making a nolso llko break
ers whenever a shark or a dogfish dashed
among them for food. Following tho coast they
movod east, passing Thomastou, Rockland,
Camden, Llnconvllle, Northport and Belfast,
and reaching tho mouth of Penobscot River
about a woele ago. Hero the porgy steamers
from Tiverton, It. I., overtook them, and moro
than 5,000 tons of fish are said to havo been
captured In two dnss. Rig schooners wero
loaded nt a single hnul of tho seine, which
has an area of ticarly n snuaro mile.
As the porgles workod in toward tho shore
tbo steamers followed thom, capturing so many
that the local fish wnrdons began to four that
tho food tlsli which follow the schools would
shore tho tato ot tho porgles. Complaints wero
mode and boats weul out to mako arrests, but
nobody was able to get on board the steamers to
servo tbo warrants. When tho pcoplo on tho
west sido of tbe river wero lighting mad at what
they believed was an open dollanco of tho M tine
laws and when the sheriffs and deputy Sheriffs
of Knox nnd Waldo counties wero loiaed down
with complaints, the tloet moved cast and began
to put out nets on tbe ahoros of II incock county.
Knowing how tho boats had avoided arrest on
the other sidoof the bay. Deputy Sheritf Osgood
of HluehIL) secured a steam launch and overtook
the steamer Tcoconnet, sorvlng warrants upon
Capt. I'ray, who promised to appear before
Judge Chaso and answer the charges. Instead
ot showing: up .in court Capt. Gray hoisted
anchor and went away to Long Pond, in Lincoln
county. Where theebnipany- lfis It 1 headquarters
in Maine-, taking a schooner laden with porgles
in tow. so no further warrants could be served.
By this limoSheiiff Hooper, who has charge of
the jail in Ellsworth, heard how- tbe steamers
wero acting, and came down here with a
pocketful of now warrants, arriving just
in season to sco tbo fleet of six steam
ers and six tenders pass out of the
harbor and beyond hia jurisdiction. Tbo Sheriff
said several things that would not look well In
firint, and that 'night, took the train for Portl
and, overtaking tbe whole fleet tn Rristol har
bor about noon on the next da. Here the Cap
tains of three stramers said they had been
guilty of putting out njts w itnin thrco miles ot
the shore. Cant. Bob Maeon of the Curtic. Capt,
(Sray of the Teaconnct. and Capt. Dan Mason of
the Ueorgo Church offered to pay a lump sum of
8-0O0, or $200 for every steamer, pro ided tho
Sheriff would let them go free. As tho Sheriff
carried a dozun warrants against every boit, he
could not consent to compromise, and putting a
man in charge of the boats as keeper, went up
town to get a little rest.
Whllo tbe faithful Sheriff slept and dreamed
of glory and fat fees thapurser went ashore and
the bouts slipped out to sea. It is asserted that
the treat storm wplth swept tip Penobscot Bay
that afternoon waa caused by the remarks
which Sheriff Hooper made -when he learned
that the boats had saraln escaped bim. After
going to Portland and consulting lawyers he re
turned to Ellsworth, whero he is making out
writs to serve on tbe three Captains as soon a
they touch Maine soli. If tbe Captains are
caught they will be brought to Hancock county
for trial, and when Hancock county is done
Waldo and Knox counties have great bundles of
complaints to enter.
Porgles hare not visited the Maine coast be
fore since 1 8S0. when 20,000 tons were taken
and nearly half n million gallons of oil were
pressed out. The oil Is used for mixing paints
and is nearly as valuable as the linseed oil made
irom flaxseed. Tho refoso or " porgy chum," as
it Is called. Is rich in nitrogen ami is sold to
farmers for 930 and S10 a ton.

arbitration treaty, wns piuch discussed during
tho afternoon, nnd when It was Joarned,
that ho had sent a letter In lieu of
his presenco much disappointment was
ovincod. Tho burden of all tho speeches was tha
arbitration treaty, coupled with a manifest de
slro on tho part of the Irish-Americans to culti
vate German-Americans and foster tho spirit of
enmity toward Englnnd which seems to be eW
".'.JP.1."8 wl'llln recent months In Germany.
William Lyman, President ot tho Irish Na
tional Alliance, was the Chilrmnn of tho even

descendants of the revolutionary torlea those
Americans who favor arbitration with Kncrland,

Patrick Egan.ex-MlnlstertoChlll, said In partt
" Tho presence of so many Ocnnan-Amerlesni
shows that for almost tho first time tho Irish
and German races have happily found thnt they
nro now contending against a common enemy.
The treachery and robbery inflicted hy England
for so many centuries upon unhappy Ireland nra
now attempted to bo exercised against tbe
Boers in the Transvaal. Fortunately the Boers
have behind them, in addition to their own
splendid courngo nnd modern rifles, not
only tho moral but tho material support
of Kaiser William and tho great Ger
man nation. The Boers. In their stnig
gio against their foes In 1882. had the
sympathy and aid of tho Irish Nationalists, and
to our German fellow citizens to-day wo promise
our cordial cooperation in their effort to succor
tholr kinsmen In South Africa."
Mr. Egnn denounced tho arbitration treaty,
declaring that It was being pushed by British
intrigue, which had as many tentacles in Wash
ington ns n devilfish.
Congressman William Sulzer was then Intro
duced as tho representative of tho German
"England." be said, "refused to arbitrate
with our fathers In "7fi and 1812, and we In
180, bid hor defiance. Stricken in every part
of tho world .she appeal to us for arbitration In
order that sbo may say to tho other nations that
she has this republic at her back. I believe that
England Is our enemy and our only rival. We
want to servo notico on Downing street that w
nro going to have the largest navy in the world,

world, 'hands off," and vindicate foreVer thfl
Monroo doctrine. .-
Chairman Lyman followed Mr. Sulzer by
read ng Senator Morgan's letter of regret at hit
inability to be present. Tho letter In part was
" Projects for the compulsory arbitration of
quarrels that aro yet undiscovered are only In
tended to disarm us and prevent rcslstahce to
tho encroachments until thev have grown Into)
controversies, and then into demands, that, like
evil weeds, spring up in neglected fields.
"To disarm the United States is not to disband
armies or to dismantle onr fleets. Wo onlv
keep enoughof these to preserve tho pence and
io furnish n nucleus for our volunteer soldiery.
Our disarmament Is complete when wepledga
ourselves in treaties, which are the snprera
law-of the lind, that we will not call upon our
s-oltinteers to prevent a national wrong until nil
means, except war. have heen tried in vain.
Wo would thus destroy the prestige snd moral
force of our Government In obedience toa-iim
pering sentiment for peace, which, among men
and nations, is tho strongest invitation to wrons
and injustice, and is always accepted.
" When tho people who do the flphting.snd
furnish the money yield up to Orest Britain in
a treats- their right to declare war until a high
court that is foreign to our Constitution has de
cided that we may do so. and. farther, until
some other unmeutioned nation has been In
vited to intervene, we will have sang the death
song of this noble republic."
Among the other speakers were Kx-Asslstant

"Men were making an excavation for a cellar
on some lots uptown, and the wagons In which
the excavated dirt was hauled were driven over
some adjoining lota to reach the street. The
wheels and the horses' hoofs had broken up and
pulverized the top soil on these lots, which hd
become a dry powder. At a little distance I saw
rising from this an extremely delicate little
cloud of dust, which rose only a foot or two and
then drifted slowly away on the breere. I won
dered what could make the dust rise in that
way, but when I came nearer I saw about fifty
