Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. CAPE MAY, N. J., July 17, 1002. The heavy travel to the shore has now reached those proportions at which it will remain throughout the balance of the sum mer season. During the present week crowds have come in and swelled the lists of guests at the hotels and boarding houses. The cottage colony is also entertaining a large number of visitors, and the major portion of them are from Philadelphia, Bal timore and Washington. It has been peculiarly a week of golfing interests because of the large number of visitors here who enjoy that game. The lovers of bathing have no cause to complain of this pleasure here. The water is excellent and there has been an exceed ingly larger number of guests than usual who have enjoyed the frolic In the edge of the old oaean. There has been considera ble life among the cottages during the week. A large number of dinners, euchres and musicales have been given by the lead ers of the social colony, and, indeed, it has been one continuous round of gayety since last Saturday.

SEA GIRT. N. J.. July 17, 1002. This week has been far and away the liveliest of any of the season, because 800 of the New Jersey troops have been in camp. Encampment weeks are, In gaiety, never quite equaled by any other week of the season, although the latter July and August crowds do not allow the merriment to lag. The sport is of rather a different character while the soldiers are here, and because of their presence, the arrivals have been exceptionally heavy this week. The Tremont and Parker House are literally packed with guests. The troops are to be here next week still, and in detachments during the rest of the season. The latter part of August the riflemen from many states will be here contesting for the prizes offered by the National and New Jersey Associations and the National Revolver As sociation.

Than the Shark river anchorage of the Belmar Yacht Club at sunset there is no prettier sight on the Jersey coast. IHa a larchment in miniature, a forest of masts of tny craft, for shipping over the shallow mile-wide bay Into Shark river enlarges west of the railroad, bridge. The descend ing sun illuminating and whitening the sails of some 200 craft presents a spectacle to see which the cottagers and hotel guests from all this section of the coast gather In their carriages. The weekly dress ball at the Hotel Co lumbia is the most largely attended, elab orate event of its kind that Belmar has seen this season. The new boardwalk In front of the Colo rado and Atlantic is a pronounced addition to the attractions at that popular house. The Belmar boardwalk is crowded again tonight, so crowdcd. in fact, that the propo sition is being pretty generally considei|l among the hotel proprietors whether or not It should be widened. The progressive euchre party at the Hotel Columbia this week was one of the largest in the history of that house. THAT STAID ELEMENT. Has a Word to Say on a Burning Ques tion. Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. OCEAN GROVE, N. J., July 17, 1002. Along with the camp ground worship has this week been mingled a ruffle of the feel ing over another attempt to effect what the staid conservative element regards as the secularization of this ultra-religious resort. The protest was elicited by the project to advertise the Auditorium services by put ting a twelve-foot letter sign?"Ocean Grove ?Auditorium"?above the Auditorium that all the country and ocean round might be reminded as often as darkness came that there were popular concerts, with small ad mission, .going on. Such brilliant obedience of the gospel injunction not to hide your light under a bushel, the "old timers" re garded as distinctly bad taste. The protest bids fair to prevent the innovation, which was the pet project of only a few of the association advisers. The camp ground program this week has attracted thousands of people interested in the special conventions which have been in session there. The King's Daughters held their na tional convention on Wednesday, with the president, Mrs. Margaret Bottome, in the chair. Mr. and Mrs. F. R. Hanna are Washing ton guests of the Langdon. A pleasant Washington party at the Sea side includes E. P. Hanna, Miss Alice M Hanna and Lulu E. Hanna. ( Dr. Ada R.

Through Avon's shady, balmy groves life-giving zephyrs have wafted themselves this week to the delight of the largest mii July crowd this resort has seen in at least a half dozen years. Simply perfect has been the weather; so perfect that indoor pleasures have been largely forgotten in the sportive pursuit of open-air fun. A bal poudre was the chief social event at the Avon Inn last Monday evening. STIFF SEA BREEZES. Ocean City Folks Have Had a Week of Them. Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. OCEAN CITY, Md., July 17, 1902. Nothing better could be said of the weath er here during the past week than that we have enjoyed seven days of characteristic Ocean City coolness, with the delightful combination of stiff sea breezes and bright sunlight. Saturday night dances at both the Plim arid Atlantic were well attended. The attention of music lovers was divided Sunday night between the two excellent concerts given, one in the parlors of the Plimhimmon and one in the Atlantic ball room. The "marshmallow roast" given last Mon day night to the younger set by Mrs. H. R. Smoot of the Smoot cottage proved a most spontaneous and delightful affair. A large bonfire was built near the water's edge, and tables for refreshments arranged nearby. A revival of old-fashioned games with the consuming of many nicely browned mallows, with much frolicking and laugh ing.

NARRAGANSETT PIER, R. I.. July 18, 1WK2. The cottagers are nearly all on the ground, but, as usual, the early entertain ing starts hard. One thing Is at last booming?the bath ing, the temperature of old ocean having gone up half a dozen degrees within a few days. Except for some minor changes about the main bathing beach, Narragansett. now that It is in bloom. Is seen to be practically the same as for three or four years. The villa end of the resort Is growing. The opening of the Little Casino by Chas. Rausiher of Washington tills a long felt want. The place has the merits of being exclusive and retired, and every vis'tor at Narragansett should take a peep at the ornamental dragon which is never ible to slake his thirst at the water tank. A feature of the new management of this vest pocket edition of the old social clear ing house Is the "diner riche" served Sat urday and Sunday evenings.

A large loss of life is reported, but the number of victims has not been ascertained at the time this dispatch is filed.

These Include the colleges, banks, public market, churches, custom house, fire department building, municipal offices, rail way station and many stores and dwellings. The fire was fought bravely, in spite of many obstacles. The homeless are being cared for as quickly as possible by govern ment officials. Action is being taken to al leviate distress. There is no gas in the city, and the resi dents now have to get their water from the river, Guayaquil has been a great sufferer from fire. The principal flres took place In 1707 1764, 1830, 1841 and 1896. The flre In 1896 was particularly destructive, and three fourths of the residents were left homeless.

"How do you know?" asked the man in the operating chair. "Oh, by experiment. You see, I always used to shave myself in the morning the first thing after getting up, but I hated to do It, because it was so apt to make me late for breakfast. So one night I shaved myself at 11 o'clock and went straight to bed and to sleep. Do you know, my face was almost clean when I got up? You would have sworn, unless you had examined me closely, that 1 was ffesh from the razor. And ever since then I. have shaved before going to bed, and have been given credit for shaving in the morning. The growth of the beard, you see is practically imperceptible during the eight or nine hours of your sleep. "But if you should stay awake those eight or nine hours the growth would be as fast as usual. One night, after I had shaved, I had to stay up with my sick daughter, and I almost needed a second scraping in the morning. The beard grows, in my opinion, three times as fast when you are awake as It does when you are Mteep." POPE LEO TAKES A HAND. Dissolves Commission of Cardinals Dealing With Friar Question. The Hnmo correspondent of the London Daily Chronicle says the pope iH lnt< nsely displeased at the way in which the com mission of cardinals has conducUd the ne gotiations with Judge Taft in the matter o? the friars in the Philippines. "I learn from an authoritative source," says the correspondent, "that, b< -id. s an nulling the procedure of the commission of cardinals, the pope has summarll) dis solved it, expressing his view that the American demands were reasonable and signifying his readiness to treat with Judge Taft personally." The following note from the Vatican was presented to Governor Taft last night: "I hasten to acknowledge the receipt of the letter by which you kindly communi cated to me the cablegram from Secretary Root answering my note of July which explained the counter project of the Vati can for the regulation of religious affairs in the Philippines. While thanking you for this important communication. I am happy to assure you that the holy pee has learned with the liveliest satisfaction the high consideration in which Mr. Hoot, in the name of the government of th<" United States, holds the fitness of the measures which the Vatican, independent ly of the solution of any economic ques tion, designed taking to ameliorate the re ligious situation in the archipelago and to co-operate in the pacification of the peo ple under American sovereignty. The measures are indicated in my memoran dum of June 21 and my letter of July !?. These declarations of Mr. Root do honor to the deep political wisdom of the gov ernment of the United States, which knows how to appreciate the happy influence of the holy see for the religious and civil ele vation of the people, especially Catholics. "With equal satisfaction the pontiff has taken Into account the assurances of Sec retary Root that the American authority* In the Philippines and at Washington will put forth all possible efforts to maintain the good understanding happily establish* <1 with the auth orities of the Catholic Church. On his part, the pontiff will not fail to give the apostolic delegate soon to be sent to the Philippines the most precise In structions according to my former notes. "The main lines for future negotiations, indicated In the notes, having been accept ed by Secretary Root, the representatives of the Vatican In the archipelago will eater into relations with the authorities in the Philippines on the four points indicated by Mr. Hoot at the end of his CtWftTUL "The holy see docs not doubt that mu tual confidence, combined with the action of Its representative and that of the Amer ican government, will easily produce a happy solution of the pending questions, in augurating for that noble country a new era of peace and progress. "It is my agreeable duty in ending this letter to be able to render homage to tho very great courtesy and high capacity with which you have filled the delicate mission which the government and Presi dent of the United States confided to you. Willingly I add that the favorable result of the negotiations must be attributed In every ,large part to your high personal qualities.
