The tug George W. Pride left port yester day with a pile-driving machine in tow on a wharf repairing expedition on the Potoma. Stewart's wharf, in King GebrgB' cottlty,' Va., will be first visited by the driver, and the structure will be given a general over hauling. It is stated that the *harf at Clifton Beach, owned by Mr,; Harry Rere ger, will also be repaired before the ma chine is brought back from the lower river. Clifton Beach wharf was one of those damaged by the ice during the past win ter. The structure wais fVst knocked one way by the ice piling against ii, .nd short ly afterward the tide and wind caused the ice to pile against the other side and slowly shove it back to an upright position. Despite the warm weather fish are in ex cellent demand, though the supply coming to the market is rather limited and con sists mainly of s tlt water fish from Chesa peake bay. River fish are scarce and bring the highest prices. There has been a steady demand for crabs the entire summer and fair supplies are being received by the d2alers from the lower Potomac. The watermelon market on the fish wharf is quite a busy place. A large fleet of ves sels with melons of all grades aboard is at the wharf and the demand for them is fair. The melons can be bought at almost any price up to $2=i per hundred, according to the grade. The three-masted schooner Helen M. Golder. with ice aboard, was brought into port yesterday and will unload her cargo at the wharf foot of 13%_ street southwest. There are yet at sea four or five ice-laden vessels bound to this city, which have been detained by contrary winds on the At lantic. It !s rer'orted that a new wharf is to be built in Wicomico river, Md., three Or' four miles further up the stream than are the present wharves, and when the struc ture is completed the steamboat lines from this city will be invited to land at' it. The proposed new pier will be convenient to a rich trucking country now fifteen or eight een miles away from the nearest wharf and twice as far from a railway. The two wharves now in use in the Wicomico river are but a short distance from its mouth. and most of the produce from them goes to Baltimore. The rebuilding of the tug George W. Pride, which was badly damaged by fire on the night of July 4. has been completed and the boat went into commission yester day under the command of Capt. Walter Posey. The forward part of the house and the pilot house of the tug were destroyed by the flames, but no serious injury was done the hull of the boat. The schooner Norman, which unloaded a cargo of lumber here, went down to Alex andria yesterday and wi-ll there load a cargo of railway ties for Boston or other New England port. The ties are cut in the forests in the interior portion of Vir ginia and are brought to Alexandria over the Southern railway. Of General Interest. The United States lighthouse engineers' steamer Jessamine. Capt. Klug, has re cently returned from a repairing cruise among the light stations on Chesapeake bay. Hook and line fishermen in the harbor are having considerable success in catch ing large catfish during the past three or four days. Several of the fish caught have weighed ten pounds or more. Some few white perch are being caught, but they are small. As the river is now clearing up the bass fishermen are hoping for some good sport in the next few days. The schooner jbevi B. Phillips, from New York for this city, is at sea on her way here. She should come in the capes of the Chesapeake in the latter part of this week, and will be brought up by one of the tugs at the capes on . the lookout for vessels bound here.

Over 1,200 persons journeyed to the River View excursion resort Sunday morning last to 'witness the performance of a new act by Mona. Drukker, who converts himself into a human torch, and, hanging by his feet from a trapee bar, slies 700 feet down an inclined wire in a blaze, and,flnal ly drops head. $rst into the lake at the end of the chute. The act is a startling one and is as dangerous as it looks. The per formnance was scheduled to take place at 8:30 p.m., and it was a little after that hour when Drukker and his attendants went to the top of the chute. The electric lights about the chute were extinguished, and at a Signal the blazing body was seen coming down the steep incline. The flames were rdaring around him, shooting fire above him, and the rapid revolutions of the slide left a stream of fire yards behind him. Meanwhile the surface of the chute lake had been converted into a big mass of fire from oil scattered on the surface of the water and ignited, and when the end of the wire was reached the man' plunged head first into 'the lake. As he climbed out the lake the throng gathBred around him and he was loudly cheere. There is no make-believe about the per formance, for the flames that-surround the man as he slides down the wire over the chute are as hot and burning as oil or gas oline can make them. The daring man ac tually saturates the suit of cotton batting he wears with a mixture of gasoline and coal oil,'and this is touched off just as he starts on his journey down the wire. The feat is a difficult and dangerous one-so dangerous that it has never been tried be fore, until Mons. Drukker evolved the idea while at 'River View a few days ago. He approached Capt. Randall and laid his plans before him, and asked for the use of the chute to work it out. Several days last week, of mornings, before the excursionists' arrived and after they left at night, he worked on the act, and has perfected it so that he will offer it to the public again tomorrow night at 8:30 o'clock. Mr. Drukker was seen in his dressing room after the performance by a Star reporter and in response to a query stated that while the act was a most dangerous one he had confidence in his ability and that of his assistants to escape dangerous harm. When he first tried the act last week before appearing in public, his back was badly corched by the fire burning through his suit, but he had to take those chances. The act will be repeated at River View tomorrow night and again Saturday night, and will be free to the patrons of the re sort. RECEPTION TENDERED. Committee of One Hundred Provides for Greetings Tomorrow Evening. A committee of 10 prominent colored c:ti zens of Washington, D. C., will tender a public reception and welcome to Mrs. Mary Church Terrell, recently returned from the international congress of women at Berlin, Germany, where she scored a success in, presenting the cause of her s x in the Eng lish, French and German languages. The reception, which will be open to the public, will be held at the Metropolitan A. M. E. Church, on M street northwest be tween 15th and 16th streets, tomorrow evening, beginning at 8 o'clock. Addresses of welcome, music and response by Mrs. Terrell will constitute the program. ME. HEITMULLER'S REJOINDER. Says A. B. Bateman Was Promoter of Royal Insurance Company. Mr. Otto Heitmuller, assistant secretary [f the Royal Life Insurance Company, re ferring to an interview with A. B. Bate man which was printed in The Star of Sat urday, denying that he (Bateman) was ever an employe of the Royal company, stated today that "Bateman was one of the original promoters of the Royal Life Insur ance Company, and was summarily dismissed from the company." Mr. Heitmuller further stated that the Royal company, as shown by its official report at the close of 1903, had a cash surplus, over and above all ac crued liabilities, very much larger than the sum noted by Mr. Bateman. and more than required -by the needs of the company in the proper conduct of its business.

This action was understoc b9 them at the time to be In conflict wit the ruling of the superintendent of i yard. It is stated, however, that the me were, at liberty to take the half holida; but that in taking it they would lose ha a day's pay. The taking of the half ho) day by the machinists on Friday was i make up for the half day they thougl themselves- entitled to on the precedin Saturday. They understood that the cQI troller of the treasury had suspended the half holiday on Saturday. which they com tended had been granted by the President order. The question will be considered at meeting of Columbia Ldge tomorrow eves ing.
