thousands of people to the seashore the past

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

A PRETTY ANCHORAGE.
Weekly Full Dress Hops at leading
Hotels.
Special Correspondence of The Evening Star.
BELMAR, N. J., July 17, J902.
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

AVON-BY-THE-SEA, N. J.. July 17, 1002.
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

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.

The cottagers are nearly all on the
ground, but, as usual, the early entertain

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.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ellis have cottage

brought his pack of forty hounds to Ca
nonchet, the old Governor Sprague place,

hotels will be crowded during the tourna
ment.
Cake walks and fistic encounters are on
rather earlier this season than usual.

GUAYAQUIL IN RUINS.
Ecuadorian City of 40,000 is Almost
Obliterated by Fire.
A dispatch to the New York Herald from
Guayaquil, Ecuador, yesterday says: Tills
city has been almost obliterated by the fire
which started at 9 p. m. Wednesday and
raged all of yesterday.
Twenty-four blocks, comprising about 548
houses, were destroyed. The total loss Is
placed at more than J6.000.000. There Is
J4.000.000 Insurance, all In four companies.
A large loss of life is reported, but the
number of victims has not been ascertained
at the time this dispatch is filed. The dis
aster is so great that the residents are in a
panic, and have not been able to count
those of their families and friends who are
missing.
About all of the principal buildings are in
ruins. 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.
That great conflagration destroyed many
old and dilapidated buildings.

The Growth of the Beard.
From the Philadelphia Times.
"The beard hardly grows at all when
you are asleep," said the barber.
"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.
"While flattering myself that this first
success will be a guarantee of the happy
Issue of ulterior negotiations in Manila, I
have the honor to be, etc..
