TnrxTOK. If. J.. Nov. fl.-Now Jorsoy will oleet
on Tuesday a Governor, olght Congressmen.
I eight Slnto Benntors nnd nGcnornl Assembly
of sixty mombors. Thlrtoon of tho smaller
counties elect some of their county ofllecrs.
buttho campaign has bcon fought generally on
national nnd Htato Itsues,
During tho past two treoks the conditions
have Improved greatly for tho Republicans,
and their Blnto Coniraltteoinon confidently
predict tho election ot roster SI. Voorhcos n
flovornor by a plurality of from 8.000 to 20,000.
This prediction Is mado on estimates which,
they any. nro consorvalvo ns to Itepubllcan
claims In the various counties and allow tho
Democrats nil thoy claim In tho Democratic,
counties. Neither sldo has gl von out any fig
ures to support Its claims.
Tlio Hopubllcnns nlso claim that they will
eleot six nnd probably seven of tljo olght Con
gressmen. Haven of tho eight Btate Henatora
nnd ntlenst thirty-five of tho sixty Assembly
men, nnd possibly thirty-eight. In this mini
bor thoy Includo tho eleven Assomblymen
from Esaox county, nnd concetto to tlio Demo
crats only tho olovon from Hudson, ono from
Hussev. two each from Huntonlon nnd AVnrron
nnd three encli from Monmouth nnd Middlesex
counties, n total of twenty-two.
Essex county continues to bo the doubtful
district, but the moteonsorvatlvo Republican
lenders thoro, who few weeks ago wore chary
of making claims, now froely predict that It
will bo carried by tho Republicans by from
a.riOOton.OOO plurality.
On tho Congress tickets the Republicans will
enrrythe Statu by nnywhero from l'J.000 to
.Ti.tXH). Loudonslngernnd Gardner in the Plrst
nnd Hccond districts will win by not less than
H.tXXl. In fact. In this end of tho Htato. strong
Domocrntlo workers rldiculo tho notion that
nni" Intelligent Democrats should think of vot
ing for Hlcdellor Hall, the tree-silver candi
dates In tho two districts named. In tho Hee
ond district efforts wero made to keop Hall
from making spoeehes for fear thoy would In
jure tho rest of the ticket, but thofree-sllvor
candidate Insisted on being heard nnd kobt tho
financial issuo to the front.
The latest elTort of tho Democrats Is con
tained in n circular sent out from Gloucester
city by Abraham Townsend. It seeks tn array
tho racing and sporting men on tho Demo
cratic side, and says:
"Thero aro very good chances for the re
sumption of rncInginNew .Iorsy next winter
If nil the friends or the sport stnnd together.
Tho so-called racing amendment to the Con
stitution, voted on at the special election a
year ago. Is now hung up In tho Court of Errors
and Appeals. Some ot the ablest lawyers In
tlio State say that tho ruling will undoubtedly
bo ngalnst tlio ruling of tho Hupromo Court,
which was to tho elTeet that tho amendment
had carried lit the election.
" If tho Court of Errors nnd Appeals decides
that it was not carried, then tho question ot
racing nnd pool selling will bo left open to tho
Legislature, as that is tlio court of last resort,
and its decision Is llnal. What wo want to do
in tn stand together In tills fight against the
cranks nnd fanatics who stopped tlio sport. Wo
want to elect members of tho Legislature who
will give us a racing bill, Ex-Senator William
D. Edwards of Hudson county Is representing
us in tho fight, and Allan L. SleDermott, the
eminent lawyer ot Jersey City and eandldato
for Senator, will stand by us. Wo want to elect
Henntors and Assemblymen who we know can
help us. If wo stand together wo can accom
plish this."
Tho circular co'ncludos with nn nppeal for a,
"substantial contribution to our campaign
fund."
T.IQVOlt TAX T.AW PATS YOU.
Yon Are Asked to Surrender Your Own
Profit to Knrlcli ttie Liquor Uenlrr,
A statement constantly reiterated by Tam
many Hall orators whon thoy spoak of the
Liquor Tax law Is that tho law takes nwny
from the locality and gives to the State the
money that Isralsod by the law. The city is
taxed to benoflt tho country ,thev 3ay.HTho
Liquor Tax law provldos that two-thirds of all
tho revenue derived from tho sa!o of liquor tax
certificates shall bo turned over to the officials
of the county, city, town, or Ullage whero it is
collectod. Tho other third goes to tho Stnto
nnd is paid Into tho general fund to pay
the expensos of tho Stato Government. Tho
total amount raised by tho old Excise law.
which tho Democratic party wants to reCnact
when it has tho opportunity to repeal the pres
ont law. was $2,017,124.01, Tho total amcnirt
raised by tho present law Is $11.03H,18n,07. Of
this sum. $7,741,075.27 was retained by the
cities, towns, and villages whero It was rulsed.
and was used to help pay the expenses of tho
local governments, and $3,81)7,114.40 was paid
to the State, nnd was dovoted to the payment
of the oxpensos of tho Stnto Government. If
tho money the State got had not boen raised by
means ot the Liquor Tax law it would hate
had to bo raised by direct taxation, so the
cities, towns, and vlllngoH got not only their
two-thirds of tho whole amount raised, but
they were in addition relieved ot Stnto taxes
to tho amount of tho State's shnrn of
the money. In Now York eitv. for instnnco.

In tho shape of reduced State taxes. That is.
It has to pay $1.847..rtS0.70 less State taxes
than it would have to pay If tho old Eveiso law
was In force. So In tho ease of New Y'ork city
the city benefits not only $,".4H2.7.'t2 fCt. tho en
tire amount it raises by tho Liquor Tax law.
but $.')tl,(l5f3.88 more than it raises, the total

Oi:i.lt. the total nmonnt It received undor tho

sums bv tho numberof taxpayers In old New

Slajor John Byrne, who had chargo of tho
Sound-Money Demoerntlo campaign In 1R00,
Issuod an nppeal yesterday to tho "Sound
Money Democrats of 18fst."
"Can you seriously have any question as to
where your duty calls you to-day ?" ho says.
"The fact being that tho onomy you fought In
lSdll was not. destroyed, but only repulsed,
does not roloase you from your duty. Tho same
question that arrayod all good and loyal citi
zenship on tho sldo of honest mbney. national
honor and saroty, common honosty nnd
morality appeals to you to-dny ns strongly
as it did in 1800. If any change has
occurred since. It has been tn the di
rection ot continuing tho necessity for your
continued support, ilryanlsm has not slum
bered or hesitated since tho morning of Nov.
4, llttHJ: it has spread its propaganda of heresy
among the people witli a wnll-dellned object In
vlow tho capture of tho Congress of 1M1W.
With the Congress, to bo blccted on noxt Tues
day In forty-two States of this Union, In its
control, it can so disturb and disrupt tho busi
ness and Industrial interests of this coun
try ns to produce the conditions of silvor
agitation effected In IrSPOwhlchennbled Ilryan
lsm to capture tho Democratic-party conditions
necessary to the success of Ilryanlsm. The
nursery (or the propagation of Ilryanlsm with
all its hideous, monstrous, autl-Aincricnit doc
trines Is hard times. The aim and object and
effect of free silver agitation for several yean
has boen to precipitate this country Into a
condition ot businebs parnlsls, with Its
army of Idle, discontented, labor, strained
business conditions. Indebtedness on falling
prices, and then offer the panacea of debased
money as a remedy. Everv vote cast In tills

Crokor."
Two Incidents only marred tho harmony of
the Tammany Sttnduy festival. During a par

which the Republican party was hold responsi

Everyone knew.
rilOSTT TIME AT THE STAB.
There was a frost party in tho afternoon at
the Star Theatre. It was no more like one of
the old-time Tammany meetings than a pro
hibition conference Is llko n football game.
"What's the matter with Tnmmany. anywny?"
Is the quostlou thnt etorybody was asking at
the meeting, and many of them asked It with
almost tearful emphasis. Throughout tho
meeting there was not only a marked lack of
enthusiasm, hut nn ono or two occasions tho
nameofC'oI. Roosevelt was openly applauded,
and the policemen on duty looked as it thoy
couldn't bcliote their ears.
Half past 2 was tho tlmo set for tho meet
ing. At that hour tho "grand outpouring of
tlio peoplo" promised in tlio prospoctus must
hnto been divertod Into some other channel,
for it certainly wasn't In evidence thero. Tho
two policemen In tho lobby looked lonely. In
side there were just about enough persons to
half fill the orchestra seats, mostof them bulng
women. In the first gallery there was a small
bunch of tho faithful, and tho population of the
second gallery consisted of utvoary hobo, who
wns fust asleep with his head on the railing,
and two notvsnoys who woro engaged in drop
ping peanut shucks down his neck. Thohouso
wns funereally dark and silent. Arrived just
nbout then Civil Justlco Goldfogle. who was
down to mnko a speech, and didn't approve of
sn much desert nlr on which to wasto his
sweetness. Hastily hunting up n momber of
the committee ho dcninndod :
"What's the matter hero, nnywny?"
"Nothing's the mntter that I know of," said
the committeeman.
"Well, wheio's your surging mob of citi
zens ?"
" Well or give 'em a littlo tlmo."
" Is this what you call 11 grand outpouring of
the people? Hot kind or an enthusiastic, mul
titude thlsisl"
"Tisn't my fault." cried the committeeman.
" What do you want me to dor"
"Get nut and hustle and get some people
here." cried Gotdfoclo. "Havo I got to teach
you how to run a political meeting?"
Other Tammany men arrivod and,Rnvo tho
samondvico.
"Get tho people horo If you hare to arrest
'em," wns the order.
Dy those methods tho thentre was gradually
filled, messengers having gone fortli to nil
points of the compass: but naturally the audi
ence, collected by such persistent means, wns
not brimful ot enthuslnsm, nnd the spirts of
tho faithful who had come early wero damp
ened by a woary wait of nearly half nn hour
nfter the time set. Menntlmo tho ushors.net
Ing under orders, wero rushing everybody
down to the front to mako tho host showing
possible. When the lights went up thoy showed
on the frontof the speaker's desk n lithograph
of Augustus Von Wyek. nnd it Is well thnt It
was there, forotlienvlse one could hardly havo
known that the object of tho meeting was to
further tho election of this gentlemnn Ho
was hardly mentioned during the afternoon.
Chairman M. 11. Ultinienthiil didn't bo much ns
siieak his niiino. John W. Keller said. "Van
Wyek" twice nt thu outset oflils remarks and
then proniptlyforgotthe eandldnte'H existence.
Justice Goldfogle lugged him In nt the tall ond
of his speech for a -single mention, and tho rest.
of tho speakers didn't eoncorn themselvos
much more with tho brother of tho present
nmlnblo and toft-tongued Mayor of this city.
It was. perhaps, just as woll, for thn frigidity
of the resiKinse was thus less marked.
Jt was licit ly .'1 o'clock whon a solemn line of
men filed slowly upon the stage and tried to
look as if thoy wero nble to occupy fully ohnlrs
Intended for nt least totti lines their number.
Homobody introduced .Mr. Itliimeuthal as Chair
man. Mr. Rlumenthallooka ingenuous, but he
told iitdnftilllo In saying:
1" Wo havo heard Col, Roosevelt guarantee
that ono tough rider is an equal In ability to
011 of any other tolunteersol.lfersln the war,"
This lie. In defiance of tlio promise of II ro nnd
brimstone, John W. Keller, the next speaker,
repeat ed, He alto repoatod Mr. Hill's " Knock -'em-down"
advice about Superintendent JTe
Cullagh's deputies and declared in wrathful
accents Unit "netor hns such a dastardly out
rage been perpetinted on tliecltyof New York"
ns when some of the deputies vumu to him and
askod for records of his department which, by
the way. they got, as the law provides. Sir.
Keller turned tn Hnn Juan nnd looked as it he
hail been monkeying with a hornet when tho
mention of Col. Roosevelt's naino brought out
quite a little round of npplaube, which the Tam
many heelers finally succeeded In drowning
nut by Illusion. Keller was followed by Justice
Goldfogle, who Is a perky little person with n
lorelinger which ho fondly conceives tobo a
dagger, under which hallucination he foes
nbout stnbblng at his audience. Thn nnly
troublo with lain yesterday was that he told his
htnrio-i ot Piovlotts nutetliigs all over again,
amplifying them us hu wut. and that he talked
twenty minutes after tho Chairman had tried
to call hiinolT.
Nt'.'trthuondof his speech, when the audience
was In n trance, ho lapsed Into that condition
himself, trying tn remember something that
ho had left nut. Finally It came to him It was
the iiuuie ot the Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor. He mentioned it, ns in duty bound,
rapidly skipped on to a story and then ceased
from troubling. District Attorney Asa Dlrd
Gardiner then got to his feet and rumbled alm
lessl aliout the battlefields ot tho civil war
and tho recent conflict, after which lie proceed
ed ton consideration of tt hat ho called nntlnii.il
Issues. It must huto been it shock to lilm to
bate to listen to tlio speech ot Maurico II, L'n
turniyer. designed to provo that national Issues
are entirely out of nlaco in the present catn-
S'ttlgn. Other speakers were William Hulzer,
'eter S, lllnkn nnd Aloxitndor Rosenthal,
louhtlcss there wouid havo been many more,
but tho wearied Tammany men who had been
Itnpressod for tho occasion began to run the
guard in droves and It wns thought beat to
close hastily.
ARCHITECTS irA&IIISaTO.Y irovE.
The Historical Octagon House Hustorril to
It Orlgtnnl Splendor.
WAntNOTo;, Nov. 5. Tho famous old houso
known us tho Octagon Houso in this city
Is being restored to lt.t ancient glory,
and will hcrenttor bo tho homo ot tho

principally for tho homo of tho Washington
branch. It will, In fnct, bo tho headquarters of
tho architects of tho entire Unltod Stales.
No building In Washington has clustered nbout
It moro memorlos. or Is moro fitting to
bo tho home of architects, than tho
Octagon Houso, which, ns mny be Imagined,
takes Its name fivni Its peculiar shape. This
quaint old structure stands nt Eighteenth
Htrcetniid Now Y'nrk nvenno. It wns erected
by Col. John Tnyloo. ono or tho mngnntes ot
Washington In thn Inttor part ot tlio last cen
tury. Col. Tnyloo was nn intlmnto Irlciid of
Gen. Washington, nnd during the two years In
which the houso was building, from 17IM to
1800, Gen, Washington vlsltod It n numbor of
times nnd nindo frequent suggestions regnrd
Ing Its construction.
The house wns intended to equal, if lint
ecllpso, anything In the country nt thnt time.
That It has stood for 100 years without nuv
evidence of decay speaks woll of thu euro and
materia! employed In erecting It. The house Is
built of brick, ns nro thn kitchen, atablo and
outhouses. Sandstone was brought front Aquln
Creek, Jfnme forty or fifty miles distant. In
wngons hauled by oxen, lo furnish the trim
mings for thu building. Col. Tnyloe was
especially fond of horses, nml wns noted for
his line huuters and racers. Accordingly
Provision was made for the nccominodntlon
of n hit go numbor of servants and horses.
The lot Is triangular In shape, surrounded
by a high brick wall. Tho building nnd
wnlls conform to the lines uf the street,
Thu vostlbulo Is circular In form, of thoclrcum
ferenco of the dome which surmounts it, tlio
doors, sash nnd glass forming segments of the

nificent establishment In Washington ho be
came known t hrotighout the country for tho un
rivalled splendor In which His household wns
conducted. His horses, carriages, service, and
furniture were tho finest in the land. Every
distinguished man who visited Washington
bctweon 1800 and 1828. when Col. Tayloo died,
was his guest. Presidents Jefferson. Madison,
Slonroc. and John Qulncy Adams wore enter

others partook of his hospitality. When tho
old Whlto Houso wns burned by the llrltlsh In
1812 Dolly Madison and her husband took
refuge In the Octagon House nnd occupied It
until the end of Madison's Administration. In
the circttlnr room over the vestibule the Treaty

was signed.
LITTLE FISHES ,IX COXFLICT. "
Two ltntterflles Fight for Supremncy In the
Tank nf tlio Poitrcycs.
In tho tank nt tho Aquarium thero aro a num
ber of specimens ot tho curious ond interesting
little Bermuda fish called fouroyes. from a spot
on eithor sldo closo to tho tall which somewhat
resembles nn oye, so that the fish has tho ap
pearance of having four eyes. Thoro Is a fish
ot the snmo family, but of n different species,
taken in theso waters and called buttorfiy, that
lit somo respects resembles tho fourejes,
though Its markings nre different. Tho spots,
for instance t lint mako the extra palrofoves
nro not only different in themselves, but In the
buttorfiy aro on the dorsal fin. ttoar the tail.
Instoadofon the body. Rut when two butterflies-
tnken hereabouts wero brought to th
Aquarium they wore naturally enough put Into
thetnuk with their relatives from Ilermudu.
The two butterflies came two weeks apart.
Tho first ono stayed by Itself, tint mixing
mucli with the fouruyes.nnd it might be thought
that it would have welcomed the newcomer of
ita own kind. They do assoelato together
fraternally now. but they did not reach this
happy understanding until nfter a tight in
which the fish that, had been longer lit thn
tank and which way the aggressor had been
whipped.
Itls not unusual for nflsh tohectornnd bully
other fishes in a tank and tochnso them about
and blto nt them, nnd whon a fish persists in
this it is removed to another tank. Sometimes
when a now fish Is put Into a tank tho other
fishes thero mny worry It for it while, nnd this
comes at a time when the new fish is least able
to withstand it. being tired with travel. That Is
what happened to tho new butterfly when it
was put in tlio tank. It hadn't been there long
before tho older one began to hustle It.
These small creatures arc little bits of chaps,
not much moro than three inches in length,
but off and on thoy fought for half an hour,
running nt each other and biting nt each
othor, nnd sctitlllng about In the corner that
thoy mostly frequent, with tho newcomor
finally tho victor. Now thoy lite In nmlty.and
often go nbout together: but they do not go
much with the foureyes, bolng In this respect
like Iraost fishes whose) common habit it is
oven In captivity, jtnd thonglt they mnr move
freely aliout, if there is mom than ono kind in
it tank they keep by themselves, each with its
own kind.

1 Tranitalton. I
To thk EniToit or Tub Hun Sir; Will you
nllow an Jtnliun-Aincrlc.in space enough in
your paper to mako un appeal to his billow
countrymen who nro naturalized Americans,
and who. under tlio liberal laws of this, our
adopted country, have tho right tn vote nt tlio
coming election? I am writing this In Italian,
becniiho it is for Italians alone, nnd I want It to
reach nil of my countrymen who read The
Sun. There are iniiuy such. I know.
The issuo with the Italian of Now York to
day is. Is he to bo allowed to pursue his busi
ness in Peace nnd with tho same privileges ac
corded to the native-born American, or Is ho
oneo more to become tho victim of systematic
blackmail, blackmail that oats up his small
earnings, thnt breaks his spirit and makes him
a burden instead ntn use to the city?
I do not hositnte tn suy that tho answor to
this question is to eomo noxt Tuesday. A vic
tory for Richard Crokor menns 11 blow to tho
Italians that thoy will not recover from for
ninny a day. If eter. A victory for tho Repub
lican party means a resumption of the honor
able relations that, existed between tho Italians
and the authorities of Now York during tho
administration of Mayor Strong, hut which
have been rapidly git lug way to the old condi
tions since Taminnny Hall leturnod to power.
Need I go over the ground lo novo this? I
think not. New York people know something
nbout it from the revelations nt the Loxow
committee Hut iiow much morn vou know
nbout It. my fellow lulinns! What ti few
drops It was that leaked from the bucket of
truth I How little of the persecutions that you
have suffered overcame to publlo knowledge!
Who hut you will eter know how you wero
blackmailed down to your last cent, meeting
with wluto men who would nctually accept
pennies. If you had no moro. us tho prlco of
taking sou into their good graces?
You who poddlo fruit or nuts, whose avoca
tions take you on tlio street, ns woll as you
who earn yourdnlly bread by toiling along tho
streets and 011 huildlbgH in courso of construc
tion, permit a fellow Italian, to whom party
tics aro nothing, to point out your danger to
you
Just now you nro coddled by Tnmmnny for
four votes. Many nro blinded, 1 fear, by the
ilaiidishmentsof Crokor's followers, but not all,
thank God. Italians, get nwny from Croker,
nnd nt once. Vote for whomsoever you will,
but lenvo the Democratic candidates severely
Tiloiio. A voto for thoni is a vote for Tammnny
Hull. Thete Is iu Van Vok running; It
Is Croker who heads the ticket, nnd
therein lies your danger. The Jews of Russia
will not be a more servile downtrodden race
than you will bo If this monster Crokor carries
thu day. Glvolllm the, supreme power he seeks
this yeai, and your umi tn him is at an ond.
Your handful of totes turned against him a
year or two year from now cannot hurt him.
nml meanwhile ho will quietly tuko you by thu
thro it nnd f.uuceze out your vory life blood.
Hut tills year your tote can do good. A
powerful movement Is afoot to throttle tlio
monster t'niker Etory nlly thut it cun got
iiinkes it strongor and puts a little more press
urn on tlio throat nf Tammnny Hall. This is
the tlmo lor the Italians to make some usnof
their vote, tj placo It where It will bo effective.
Leave tho DeiiiocrnlH nnd Republicans to light
over tlielr ennuis, their money question, and
their Judges, but you Itnllnns voto for this
man Roosevelt because he represents the party
which lias never blackmailed or peisecuted you
nnd bus let your honest earnings May In your
pocketB. our licenses enmo without, bribery,
from thn Republicans, and under tlielr rule 1
lliul all Americans, nitt o or foreign born, can
retain their nianliood. Resides all this, tho
esteem and regard In which nil men outside of
Tumiuauy Hull hold Cm. ltuosetelt show that
ho Is the manner of man viicim trust. For tho
00m inon good of oun-elves nnd the rest of the
Stnte, I call on ail Italians to give him their
vote, A inmiof yoiirown blood has taken the load
In tho rovo.tof Jtalluim against Tammany Hall.
There arenther Italians ofloreslght.who cun hco
what Tummanyrulo in the State means, nasn
elated with him. 1 refer to James E. March,
who has nliejily shown the light to hundreds
nf Italians, nml Is ready to ilu thu same for
hundreds more. Itulinns. I beg nf you to oo
beloroitl toojate; see that your salvation Is
a vote cast for the Republican ticket, tor that
is the only vole that you can east thut will
rea'ly be u vot against Tnmmiiiiy Hall.

CABLE CAR SMASH-UP IX HARLEM.
Twelve) Pnssengers Cut by Broken Gloss
Three Badly Hurt.
Two cable cars of tho Amsterdam avenue and
125th streot crosstown lino collided at 131st
street yesterday afternoon. Tho windows of
both cars were smashed and thoy woro so badly
damaged otherwise that a wrecking crew had
to take thorn Into tho car shed at that corner.
Ono car was returning from Fort Oeorge and
wos crowded with men. women and children.
When tt reached tho top of tho hill at 137th
street the brake refused to act and tho car
started down the steep incline at a rate of
twonty miles nn hour. The women snd chil
dren screamed in terror, and tho men. as many
as were ablo to get to the door, jumped off tho
car.
At 131st street a car. also crowded with pas
sengers, was waiting for a signal that all was
clear for it to start around tho curve. Tho
passengors saw the runaway car approaching,
and several men and two women managed to
lump before tho collision camo. Thoro was a
bang, u crashing ot glass and screams of
women.
Physicians who wero summoned found that
eight women had fainted nnd twelvo persons
had boen cut by flying gWRs. Three ot tho In
jured were hurt so badly that tho surgeons or
dered them to bo taken to tho Slnnhatfan Hos

llertha Opsbaum ot 1112 Orchard street, nnd
Sarah Aronson of thosamo nddress.
Sliss Spiezel hnd received bad contusions
about tlio head mid body. .Miss Opsbaum had
been crushed against the stovn In the corner of
the car and was so badly bruised that alio
could scarcely move her limbs. SIlss Aronson
hnd pushed both of her arms through tho glass
window hi the front door, and they wero
severely cut from the elbows to the wrists.
After their injuries had been uttonded to they
were taken home in carriages.
soft: 1 hid but dream
New York Wns Shut to lloboken nnd the
Ferryboats Could Not Kven Coal.
"You'ro not looking rested this morning."
said tho lloboken commuter to his friend on
tho ferrylioat.
"No. I'm not," replied tho othor. "Had a
bad dream. It was not caused by pie or cheese
or anything of that sort, but was tho result of
too heavy reading,
" You soo. ever since the war was over I've
been trying to catch up on my reading about
tho causes, and so on. I've got a standard work
on International law and last evening I do
voted threo hours to the subject of neutral na
tions. " Tho result was that aftor I got io bed I
dreamed that our town Hobokon and Weo
hawken had declared war against each other
nnd that Now York bad declared Its nnuttitiity
nnd closed all its ports to our forrybonts. Just
think of what that would mean If It really hap
pened, nnd you'll know how that dream took
hold of me.
"Wo didn't know of Now York's neutrality
until nfter we bad started for work In tho
morning. The boat got off all right and headed
down stream for the Barclay streot slip. When
We got nearly In wo saw n lino of cops stretched
across the opening to the slip In rowboats.
Thoy wero waving their clubs and warning our
Captain to keep off. Then wo wont up stream
to Christopher streot ond met with tho same
reception thore. Anothor lino of policemen
kept usoffntlourteonthstreet. The Captain
yelled that ho just wanted to get coal enough
to take him pack to his nearest homo port,
which was the Elysian Fields, but tho cops
didn't seem to understand that coaling feature
of international law and wouldn't roient. After
that wo just scraped along from one dock to
anothor to find an opening, but there was an
unbrokon line of iiollcemeu touching elbows
along tho entire rivor front.
" I was wild. I had already beon latont thn
office three mornings within a week nnd I
knew that tho boss would fire me. Ryntid by
wnwentnround the llattery and up tho East
River to soo if there wns any better snow In

" As we were going underthe bridge I looked
up and there, standing right in tho middlo ot

"'This is the fourth morning this week.
You'ro fired, he yelled.
" Then 1 woko up."
TUB PRAWX AXD THE DECORATOR.
And Why the Ilecorntor Found Itself Pres

Two fine, perfect prawns, taken In Gravesend
Ray, wero received Inst week at tho Aquarium ;
each had its two feelers entire, slonder, dollcatn
and flexible, and twlco as long ns tho prawn's
body. While one of tho prawns wui standing
un tho bottom of tlio tank and near the front
and parallel with It, and with Its two long
feelers curved around nt it littlo distance for
ward of Its head and trailing backward, medi

crab that was walking about In thn tank
climbed up 0:1 the prawn's tall from the side
that was toward the rear of tho tank, and stood
there for n time, lacing the front.
They looked queer enough thus together, tho
Ight.drnb.colored prawn, with the grotesque
little long-legged spidery, nlmost black decora
tor holding on to Its back. Tho prawn wns
conscious of tho decorator's presence, but ap
parently not disturbed by it, for It remained
motionless, except us ton slight motion of ono
of Its long feelers. And so they stood thorn for
a littlo time, until tho decorator slid backward
down the side of the prawn's tail, mid nppuiout.
ly. In getting a fresh grip, dug thu sharp iKJliit
of some of iu slender claws Into tlio more sen
sltlyo undor side of the prawn's tall.
This disturbed the pruwn. and tho little dec

and put in another tank. It Is doubtful if 11
