runs.
Medals for winners In the last smok
er Contests have boen ordered for some
time and are expected to be here soon.
Thb Treadwell band will play at the

weather permits.
A number of excursionists from the

THRILLING STORY TOLD
OF WILD RIDE IN FOG
?
TREADWELL. May 29?Presidont
F. W. Bradley, of. the Treadwell com
pany. an?K?ol. Jdhn H. "McKlnzle came
over on the eight o'clock Lone Fisher
man yesterday morning to meet Supt.
R. A. Klnzle for a business conference.
The trip was made diverting by the re
citation by a passenger of Captain Mar
tin's sea tale wnlch happened to him
a few years ago.
The story which the captain tells,
speaks of a wild run of eight hours In
a dense fog, during which no land was
seen and the trip had to be made by
dead reckoning and Instinct. The
wind was howling and the waves were
high, but the captain "sailed on" like
Paul Jones, and at last made port in
safety. The gist of the story lies in
his account of the remarkable landing.
After eight hours sailing, and a few
minutes added for head wind delays,
the Captain told his deck hand to go
forward and take a pike polo with him
ind point It directly ahead. Then he
slowed down the engine and at the
exact second when the pike should
have struck the first pile. It failed to
connect, and shipwreck seemed Immi
nent. but In an Instant the sharp point
of the pike struck the Hecond pile,
!nnd the ship tied up?after an eight
j hour run in which the watch had not
[seen a foot ahead of the boat. A re
! markable example of cultivated in
stinct, coupled with experienced reck
oning.
HAMLIN MAY BE
GOVERNOR OF BOARD
NEW YORK. May 29.?Washington
