August 28.?Potomac clear and Shenandoah cloudy. Tailors and bluefish are to be seen in immense schools from the pier at Chesa peake Beach, many of them coming- close enough to fall victims of the thousands of anglers who are casting their lines at this season. It is not an unusual thing for an angler to return from the pier or a trip to the deeper water with a string of two or three dozen fish to his credit, and fish that are actually big enough to enjoy. r. A. V\ ickersham. who has held the record for catching tiie biggest fish and greatest number of them, it is said, has been deprived of his laureJs this year by John E. r>onaid. Paul Y. Waters, also a record breaker in the angling line, says Donald made his big record this year be cause he knows just when to fish and does not cast his lines when wind and tide are unfavorable. "The result is," he says, "that when Donald goes to the pier and fishes he re turns with a string." One day early in the week Mr. Waters went to Plum point for an outing, Mr. Wickersham and his brother-in-law. James Bonnie of I/ouisvllle, Ky., and Oscar Marshall accompanying him. Plum po,nt is where Mr. Wickersham caught such a record-breaking bunch of rock last year. On the return trip of the quartet Mr. Waters amused himself troll ing, nut expecting to make a strike. A short distance from Plum point the anglers sighted a school of bluefish and it was but a short while before he felt something tugging away at his line. Fearing he might be received, he said nothing to his companions until he saw the fish jump from the water. There was nothing left for him to do but call their attention to his success and he soon had a two-pounder in the boat. Between that point and the resort the boat passed more than a doz^n schools of bluefish and the visitor from Louisville was de lighted with his trip. One day this week a fisherman from the eastern shore was in a small boat near Chesapeake Beach, having his perch net in his boat. When he saw he was in a school of bluefish he dropped his net overboard and had an exciting time of it. as a result landing MO fish, while as many more managed to get over the net and disapear. The next day he caught wOO fish. Two successful anglers at the resort are Thomas Carpenter and P. Ireland. They are employed there and spend much of their spare time on the pier. Mr. and Mrs. John Lyons. Mr. and Mrs. Roots. Edward Long and John Hartman composed an automobile fishlne party that went to Great Palls a few days ago. 1 he story told of the trip is that the anglers made an early start in their cars, taking with them all kinds of bait and were on the river early enough to' land some of the biggest fish in the rivor but the water was not just what it should ha\e been, the anglers declare, and the weather conditions were against them. \\ hen the afternoon arrived and no fish were in sight, so the story goes, one of the anglers made a purchase?a live bass? ?m?nagetlto eet a hook on the line of Ed Long through its mouth. This was done during part of the long lull In the J]gS- ?\d. when the angler heard the clicking of his reel he reasonably con eluded that he was the subject of con gratulations. While the men labored hard and un successfully to land a single bass. Mrs. Roots and Mrs. Lyons were content to remain on tlie bank and cast their lines for small fish. They returned with a good-size string of them, but Ed Lone was not told of the joke that had been perpetrated upon him. A number of persons from this city are enjoying a week or two in the vicinltv or Solomons Island and Drum Point catching plenty of salt water fish Solomons Island is at the mouth of the Patuxent river, and commands a beautiful view of the Chesapeake hay, the water about Drum Point being: deep enough to afford a splendid harbor for Uncle Sam's big war vessels. Almost within sight of the island are Point Ijookout, Point Lookin, Point No point and Point Again, and it is with much pride that many of the oystermen and fishermen locate the different places of interest for their guests. Solomons Island is near where the much-talked-of electric road is to be built from* this city, and persons acquainted with that section think it Is destined to become a popular resort. Among the Washingtonians who are enjoying themselves on the island are Frederick Mersheimer and wife. W H Gibson and family and Pickering Dodge! I One day this week they went to Town Point with the Rev. Father Otterbein of1 Benedict. Miss McN'amara of Baltimoron and Miss <*ondiff. daughter of Capt. George Condiff. and engaged in fishing "We caught eighty of the finest fish ever taken from the water," wrote Fred Mersheimer to a friend, "and we were not a great while catching them, either." ! Me tells of the immense tailors and blue fish caught by the party, and also of the kingfish that were landed. A great manv klngtish are caught in the vicinity of, Solomons Island. They are inclined to! be game, and the anglers enjoy the sport I of landing them. John Ilartung and I. H. Hoover spent an enjoyable day on the river near Tus carora, Rbout three miles from the Monoc acy, last Monday, and when they returned home they had a bunch of bass which would have delighted any person fond of the rod and stream sport. They caught but eight fish, but they averaged four pounds each. "Wated cloudy," was the bulletin from the river front Monday, but the Informa tion did not cause the anglers any alarm. They recalled that the clear water had affected the catch recently and the change they thought, might mean better sport. They had been on the water but a short while hejore one of them landed a big fish, and they were well enough pleased to remain there a week. It was with a feeling of extreme satisfaction and an ticipation of a repetition of the catch that the anglers worked harder than ever, and their efforts were soon again rewarded. Mad toms were used by the anglers and they returnel home with their eight fish feeling it had been the best day's sport they ever enjoyed on the upper Potomac. Dr. J. W. Taylor's recent experience with mad toms may result in a change in the method or taking the bait to the fish ing grounds. The physician was anxious to make an early start to a point on the Shenandoah river and in order that there might be no possibility of a delav his mao ! toms were sent to his home and put in 1 the bathtub. When morning came and he was about ready to start he fcas both surprised and disappointed at finding his bait bucket gone. Search was made for the bucket but tne hunt was finally given up. the conclu sion being reached that some individual had purloined it. There was not time enough to get a new bait bucket and the doctor decided that the ordinary water bucket would not answer the purpose He was puzzled about what he should do I and finally ho thought lie would trv the' experiment of taking them in wet saw-' dust. The Shenandoah river was reached and not a mad torn had died. br Taylor spent the day on the river without losina u bait by reason of his new method and was able to return home with a string of ten fish to his credit. William Wagner has returned from a trip to the Patuxent river, where he took his family and spent a week at tlie Jackson I*anding Club. All the mem bers of his family are enthusiastic witli rod and line, and they found plenty of sport on the river. "Been fishing?" asked a friend of Wag ner, shortly after his return. "Ycr," was his response. "Do much of it?" "Wasn't worth while," said Mr. Wag ner. 'The fish came so fast that it took but a few minutes to catch what the family could use and there was nothing else to do with them." Mr. Wagner is not a believer in the wholesale slaughter of the fish just be cause they are running well, and unless he can put them to good use he is satis fled* to take only a few and spend part of his outing in other wax-?. Reports from the vicinity cv* Williams port, Md.. tell of the exceptionally good kick enjoyed by ba.?s fishermen before the rains tnuddied the water. Men about the fishing grounds have had a harvest this year in boating and directing sports men to the most productive spots for big bas?. E. T. Goddard and Edward Taylor of Williamsport made one of the best captures reported this season, re turning one day with forty-three bass to their credit. The fishing was done near Chaney lock and the largest flsh of the long string weighed four pounds. Edward Curley of Hagerstown holds t lie record for the largest fish caught in that section. having landed a small-mouth bass weighing more than five pounds. While the fish were running anglers made many line catches, and the sportsman who failed to land a dozen or more on a day's trip was regarded as having made a small catch. C. G. Conn of Elkhart, lnd., established a new world's record for lignt tackle angling this week, bringing to gaff in ten minutes a tuna weighing 1:31 pounds. Two other fish were also caught, but t'nev were, not so heavy as the one which enabled the angler to establish the record. The flsh were, caught at Avalon, Cal. Another record established at Avalon involved the landing of a black sea bass weighing 270 pounds. P.. B. Atterbury of Pasadena, Cal.. caught the fish. The struggle lasted two hours and twenty minutes, the monster fish having been brought to the surface eight times before it was landed. A. S. Bennett of tne Southern railway and James Moffatt found White's Ferry a splendid place one day last week for a day's sport. They caught nine bass, three of them tipping the scales at the thirteen pound mark. The vicinity of the ferry, the anglers say, is a fine place for camp ing. Mr. Bennett caught the largest of the flsh and won the Shapplrio prize. Henry Talbott and Jesse Mlddleton spent their usual week-end vacation at Chappawamsic last week and had their usual enjoyable outing. Their experience was not as disappointing as was that of the previous week when the high tide made it almost impossible for them to land a fish or even remain on the rough water. The two anglers landed fourteen flsli, all big-mouth bass. They found the water in splendid condition, and the fish bit savagely, putting up strong fights and making the anglers earn their suc cess in landing them. No objection to ; their method was registered by the an glers. John W. Hurley and Harry Miller spent part of a day this week at the tidal basin trying to land a few bass. They landed a few?not enough to call it sport?but were well satlafied with the result of their outing, having settled the disputed question about big-mouth bass taking mad tomg. They caught two bass with the mad toms. one weighing about two pounds and the other one and one-half pounds. Wednesday morning bright and early John W. Hurley and John Lyons were casting their lines In an effort to take a few flsh from the bat>in. but the fish were not much in evidence. Two fish took fat back bait used with a spoon and were I landed. ALONG THE RIVER FRONT. Arrivals. Steamer Dennis Simmons, lumber from Astoria, X. C.. to the dealers here: tug Capt.

EARLY CAPITAL LIFE Half Century's Changes in City's Topography. LAND NEAR UNION STATION First Settlement on the Tiber Crude Homtfs. SMALL GAME DISPORTED IN 50 Paid Very Little in Taxes Toward Support of Government?First Chapel Is Built. The set-lion of the city north of the Union station, lying within G, K, 1st anil 4th streets, cut into eleven building squares in its early-day condition, had a history common to the individual squaies -and in it but few names occur, and they in connection with extensive plots of ground. Included in the Carroll tract, east of Tiber creek, and west of a small stream flowing from a -spring at 41 h and K streets, there was some low ground, but. nevertheless, there was much day. As late as 1850 small game afforded sport for the gunner, and not infrequently did rambling boys scare up rabbit, partridge and other wild fowl Up to that time there was no semblance of a street, other than a wagon road in H street, and zigswg tracks made bj the carts which carried off the product of the brick kilns. The eastern boundary was a small stream in a ravine along 4th street, which started from a spring in K street Other than the railroad Hack along I street, the brick kilns and sheds, there was no evidence that rural condi tions would be displaced. As early as 1830 effort was made to dispose of lots for building purposes, much ot the P^und being held in trust to sell. ^ the little settlement on the Tiber, known as "Swampoodle," appeared, was there a sign of building. Much Held by Uncle Sam. For over fifty years much of it paid no taxes, for it was held In the name of the government, and that otherwise held was listed for less than a cent per foot; from an eighth of a cent upward, some reaching half a cent ?n 1830, and none of it at a cent until 1840. Before the division between the goven - ment and proprietors in ITW some of the ground had passed to Greenleaf under his agreement to build on every third lot and passed to Morris & Nicholson, I ratt et al.. but no building followed In square 710. between G and II, Dela ware avenue and 2d street. Mr. Carroll took title to those of sixteen lots in the east half. In 1 <VC> John N. Wilson owned six of the Carroll lots and Henry M. Moffatt purchased the west half of tne square of the government. lot* 11 to 14 to Thomas Owens tor bein? the northwest fourth of the square. Acquired by Georgetown College. The four lots between Delaware ave nue. 1st, H and I streets, square No. 717. fell to the United States and were in cluded in the lots conveyed by the gov ernment to Georgetown College, under the act of 1833- The other, east of Dela ware avenue, was- vested and held b> Mi Carroll until ItsSI, when he conveyed it with other properly to Moses Tabbs, R. C. Weightman and Richard Wallach in trust to sell, and six years later it parsed to John A Wilson. Tne squares located north had a like history. Those bounded by Delaware avenue, 1st. 1 and K streets. 715, passing from the government to Georgetown College in 1837, and 710. east of Delaware avenue, fronting 2d. I and K streets, passing from Carroll, through Tabbs et al.. to Mr. Wilson in 1835. The square of fourteen lots fronting G H, 2d and 3d streets. 752. has similar history to that we.?rt, 711), Mr. Carroll's lots passing to Mr. Wilson In 183**. Hcnrj M. Moffatt, in 1845, acquired the others. Of square 751. fronting 11, 1. ?d and streets, the west half of which was ap portioned to Mi*, i- arroll. the east half was held by the government until J83? and was conveyed to Georgetown Col lege. The Carroll portion was conveyed, through Tabbs et a!-, to Mr. Wilson In 1835. The whole of square 750 north, of twelve lots, was vested in Mr. Carroll, and Mr. Wilson bought it in 1835 at pub lic sale. Greenleaf Properties. Fourteen lots fronting G. H. 3d and 4th streets, in square 777, were, like those west, included in the Greenleaf trans actions, but in 1796 were apportioned, the government taking those in the east half of the square- Carroll. Young's heirs and William Prout. in 1802. were vested with the others, and until the thirties title was held by the Youngs. The square north, 776, of sixteen lots on H, I. 3d and 4th streets, was apportioned In 1802, the east portion, six lots, to Nicholas Young and the west to the government. In 1830 I. Fenwick owned the east portion, and in 1837 the United States lots were con veyed to Georgetown College. Greenleat's contract incluaed the square north, twelve lots on 3d, 4th, I and K streets, but in the division title was given Mr. Young, and under his will title went to his daughter, Mrs. Robert Brent. In 1821 these lots were convey ed to Joseph Pearson. * In 1851 John Scoffer bought a lot for $50 on 4th street south of H street, and in that decade Samuel Cassidy estab lished a stone yard at l>elaware avenue and 1st street. Duke Daley, Michael Sullivan, .lost ph I'ollanshee and others had also become residents. Chapel Is Built. Some now anticipated speedy growth of that vicinitj and a chapel was erected at the southeast corner of 2d and I streets. The latter was known as Providence ] M. E. Chapel, where a small congrega tion worshiped, until the larger congre gation on North Capitol was organized. Probably there has been no greater changes wrought than here, for both grades and lines of streets have been changed, and, by reason of the location of the Union station and the trackage, such an amount of earth has been used that not a vestige of the old sod remains.

Special Correspondence of The Star. A. Y. P. SEATTLE. August 1!?, 1000. The attendance at the Alaska-Yukon Paelfic exposition during the past two weeks has broken all local records for a like period. The weather has been ideal and the grounds and buildings have been thronged with visitors as they have not been before, although the average at tendance since the opening has been con siderably over 25,000 a day. The Pacific coast cities have all been favored this year wHh an unusual pour ing in of tourists, the principal ca-use. of course, being the A. Y. P. There have been so many visitors from the east that the attractions offered by this part of the world will be more widely exploited than ever, and undoubtedly the future will witness a steadily Increasing number of eastern tourists and settlers. There are no ancient ruins, as in Eu ropean travels, to exhibit, but the finest collection of scenery through the entire northwest to be found anywhere in the country. The "fair that was ready" presents many unique features and commands un stinted praise. "Ready" in ever)' detail when President Taft pressed the button on the opening day and has been run ning: like oiled machinery every day since. To fully appreciate what it is, one must come and see what the govern ment has accomplished for the remotest of its islands in the Philippine archipela go. and learn what life was under the monarchs of Hawaii and see w-hat the life is there today; only "seeing" will con vince one of the story of Alaska "made good"; of its various resources and tin- | dreamed of possibilities, and what the government has done for its new pos sessions. Too much cannot be said in praise of the splendid management of this exposition by the directors in charge; apparently, there has not been a hitch. Nothing has been overlooked that might tend to its success and to the public comfort, and it is well authenticated that this fair will close without a debt.
