A Baby's Narrw Keempe.
The hores attached to the carriage of Col.
John Bay became frightened yesterday while
oe N street near Connecticut avenue. The
coachman attempted in vain to control the
animal., and as they dashed down N street and
into the avenue the congregation from the
Church of the Covenant were just leaving the
edifce after the morning service. An effort was
made by the coachman to check the frightened
animals, and. in order to do thiehe turned
them toward the sidewalk. To the horror of
the large crowd of spectators a baby carriage in
charge of a nurse and containing a e ing
baby was seen to tie directly in the line o the
course of the frightened animals. The nurse,
a colored womman, realizing the peril of the sit
uation. with rare pre-ence of mind and heroism
grasped the strap that secured the baby in the
carnage, and, breaking it, snatched the baby in
her arms and ran to one side just in time to
miss the horses as they rushed madly on. The
baby carriage was struck and thrown to one
ride and the hores came to a step at the board
fence on the parking. The front wheel. of Mr.
Hay's carriage were snapped off and a lady who
was in the carriage escaped without injury.
The baby was unharamed and the only injury to
the baby carriage was the breakin- of the am
brella. It was regarded as a remarkable ending
of what might have beem a tragie me rrese.

Engineer Hunt, in charge of bridges, has
caed the attention of the C0o.m.iom.=s to a
bridge on the road known as Lover's Iane.
There are two bridges on this road, he sys,
the frst, north of. Rod street, being trens
ferred to his charge by the superintendent of
county roads as a public bridge. The second
bridge never has been transferred.and he wants
to know If the obstreton is in a public road,
and. if so, what are the limits of the road. This
information. he says, is needed that =ece-ary
repairs may be made if the structure i a public
one and that the new work may be properly lo
eated on public land. The records of do oice
of the city surveyor show nothing of Lover's
Lane tn Georgetown, but the recordsof the tax
oaice for Georgetown and the county show the
lane and that no taes are paid on the space. -
The attorney for the District has been asked
for an opinion on the subject.

Mr. Thome P. Borden. He is not a member of
the executive committee and holds no oleal
position In the association. It happens that
this yer he has gone to Europe, and it seem
that there is no one todo what he did me well
last The aecretary, Mr. Sheibley, who
ha arways been an eiient worker on such oc
easions, has this year been laid up with sick
ness. With these two men out of the way,
although neither of them were members of the
executive committee, there was no one to do
anything, and the consequence is that whatever

made themselves.
If this tournament is a failure it can justly, in
large part, be attributed to the negligence and
lack of interest on the part of the association.

Dr. Muncaster of this city has been attending
Miss Pike for several weeks and it was upon
his advice that she went to New York, as he said
she was threatened with prostration.
Miss Pike lives with her widowed mother and
young brother. Mrs. Pike left for New York
yesterday to see her daughter. She was ver7
much overcome by the news of her daughters
a leged attempt at suicide and could assign no
cause for it.
Dr. Muncaster said to a STan reporter today:
" Min Pike went to New York upon my ad
vice to get a little rest. Her physical condition
was good with the exception of extreme
nervousness brought on by overwork. She was
threatened with nervous prostration '$ she
did nothave a cessation of work for afew davs."
Mr. Comstock. chief of the customs division,
confirmed the statements of Miss Pike's devo
tion to her department duties. The t writing
in his division is very hard, he , the
correspondence conducted by the division is
Work of Deepening the chanuel-latere in
the Gun Shop.
Work preliminary to widening and deepening
the navy yard channel is begun. The con
tractor, Thos. P. Morgan, Is to dredge the
Eastern branch channel directly in front of the
navy yard so as to form a basin twenty-two feet
deep at low tide. The channel line Ip to be
parallel to and twenty-Ave feet distant from the
wharfiline. The central portion of the basin
for 401 feet is to be 210 feet wide and narrowed
to 100 feet at the extremities. The material to
be dredged is believed to be soft mud,
but the contractor will be bound if it
should prove not to be, except where solid rock
is struck. Ali shoals, lumps or ridges left be
hind by the dredges must be removed. The
excavated materialis to be deposited behind
the embankment now being built channelward
from Poplar Point. This is in accordance *ith
plans approved by the engineer in charge of
the Potomac river improvement. Trenches are
now being cut through the Eastern branch
fats, so that the plan may be carried out. This
embankment is to be six feet above low tide
and there must be three feet of water at
low tide along the trench line. The estimated
length of these slush channels is fifteen feet and
the amount of dredging estimated as necessary
to complete the work 55.000 cubic yards. The gov
ernment inspector of the work is Thomas Jenk
ins. and he will be provided with quarters and
board on one of the dredging machines. The
limit df cutting has been staked off and the im
provement is to be completed in 110 days from
the contract date, April 23, 1892. The contract
price per cubic yard is 14.9 cents.
wOaE IN TE oUN sno1.
The gun shop, the center of interest at the
yard, is running on full time. Forging. for the
thirteen-inch steel ride have been received from
Bethlehem. Pa., and the work of finishing the
tube, jackets, &c., and assembling the various
parts will be prosecuted with vigor. When
completed it will be the heaviest gun of the
navy. The finished pro4uct of the gun shop
comprises eighteen ten-inch, 129 six-inch and
mineteen eight-inch rides. Under construc
tion, but practically finished are four ten-inch
mid two eight-inch guns. Iis ordnance will
constitute primary batteries. As ordnance for
mecondary batteries there are, cometed or
nearly so, twenty-nine five-inch and thrty-4ve
four-inch rifles. Master Mechanic of the Gun
Shop Bobinson is authority for the statement
that the latter branch of naval ordnance is in
an experimental stage owing to the evolution in
ammunition and breech mechanism for rapi
Bre guns.
Several hundreds of four, six and twelve
ndbrass guns are being cut Into requisite
ntsto be smelled for use In the gun car
geshop. These instruments were made dur
ing the late war and are said to be of an espe
cially fine quality of gun metal.
The experimental battery at the eouthweet
end of the yard has been abandoned and prob
ably will be soon removed. There are In this bat
tery four six-inch and two three-inch converted
rifles, all without breech blocks; one Dahlgren
twelve-pound boat howitzer and two eleven
inch iron muzzle-loading gn.A number of
carriagem are also here. (tneyexperiments
and tests of new weapons, brechmechanisms,
carrisges and the like were formerly conducted
T3 EaarINa otrAnD.
The strength of the marine guard at the yard
is seventy-six, rank and file, divided as follows:
Commissone oo~ers, 1 captain, S lieutenants;
noncomasioned oc~ers, 10 sergeants, 10
corporals; 4 musicians 48 privates. The men

no complaint aaneg the men. They speak well
of their rations of beef, bacon, mutton, beans,
cafes, bread and potatoes. There have been

One of the most imperative needs of Alexan
dria in making it a comfortable home is the
Plecsantnass of parin so familiar to ali lb in
habitants of Washington, and that seems to be
within Alexandria's reach in only one way.
There are no open grounds available, but two
100-feet-wide avenues pass, the one north and
south and the other cast and weal, through the
$own. One of them in not'paved at a, and lb
other is paved only about one-third of itsuex
tent. These streets, Washington and Franklm,
are public pro y, and it is possible, to some
extent at l , to et out of them the pleas
antness of parks. If this resource be properly
utilized it would give a park of about three
fifths of a mile area, narrow, to be sure, but a
Crk two miles in extent and 100 feet wide is
tier that none. Such a park would be avail
ble- to every ward and would touch al
aectiona of the town, and if the trees now on the
street be utilized and seats provided for ladies
and children there is no reason why a -
esque avenue might not be made on Wa 'ngton
treet now and extended east on Franklin
street in the near future, and as the city own.
fortunately both Mon street and the
reater portion of the oldeluline from Wash
Ington street to the river, time would afford a
chance of making Montgomery avenue even
wider than Washington street, and so
give the Alexandria of the future a
unique "park avenue" easily available
from all ections of the city with a superb river
view at each end. There need not be this year
any change in the paved portion of the street
except some slight changes easily made, but in
the projects of paving north or south of the
present paved area lb work could be done
with reference to the general plan and less
pavement and more gram and trees provided
for than in now contemplated. The pail
use of tstreet asa publi park-not e
ing of the street-would need to be conald
ered. Now the great drawback on Alexandria
as a city of residences is the want at a pleasant
promenade and place where moth.es ad ehil
dren can get the air.
