THE PITTSBUEG- DISPATCH. SUNDAY, ATTG-TTST 3, 1890.
Tie weather at the leading summer resorti
was dellghtf ul almost all or last week, and tlio
Influx of sweltering pleasure-seekers from the
bny cities was greater than ever. Atlantic
City b& almost been taken possesion nf by
Fitttbnrgcr and the fan Is fast and furious.
Cape May is greatly interested In its two dis
tinguished guests, Elaine and Harrison, and
Cressnn Springs people are awaiting tho arrival
of .the Fresidectal family there with great
anxiety. Pittsburgers take the lead in the
popular entertainments at Bedford Springs.
Ontario Beach Is holding ont attractions that
Gas City people will no donbt be unable to re
sist. Cbaiitauqua is having its busiest season
and the two cities at the head of the Ohio are
wall represented there. Thecool evenings at
the resorts make the worship of Terpsichore
possible, ana balls are reported from every
where. The season Is at its height.

Lake Chatjtacqua, August 2. Every
summer resort has Its peculiarities, and every
one caters to a different class of visitors. No
resort in Europe or
America is like the As
sembly Grounds. This
place is a combination
of the high and low,
the learned and the ig
norant, the odds and
end of all tbe varied
characters that one
meets in tho world. One
evening not long ago I
i sat in the outer seat of
tbe amphitheater. Mr.
Flagler bad not begun to play tbe great organ,
and tbongb it was early tbe audience ws al
ready arriving for in these days of crowds one
most be early in order to seenre a good seat.
The procession contained all kinds of Chau
- First there came the elderly maiden lady,
locking with sharp eyes through the pair of
glasses sitting on her thin nose to see if anyone
has tbe front seat. Sho is the one ubiquitous
character at Chautauqua. She has never been
assimilated into or eliminated from tbe Chau
tauqua curriculum. Her life soma 50 or CO
Buinmors has been spent n the scnoolroom
tutoring the children in "'Rltin'. 'rltbmatic
and reading," and tbe amount of her knowl
edge wanes with the number of seasons she
lias spent at Chautauqua. If she has drank at
the fountain of knowledge for only a single
session she is very modest and" unassuming,
and beholds with the admiration that tbe in
ferior always regards thesupenorher eiders who
have been here for many year, and who are
acquainted with every technicality of the pro
gramme and have heard all the lecturers who
have ever faced a Chautauqua audience.
Proud of bcr record. Indeed, is she who has
been present each year since the Assembly
started. She is botb a sage and a seer. Quite
frequently she is a "man-hater," bat it all de
pends. If she thinks all hopes are gone or in
coma distant day she was disappointed In her
love ambitions 6be spurns tho opposite sex.
Perhaps she is yonug and still has hope. "ben
tbe way she smiles at some college professor
Monld out (Jo the most graceful attentions ot a
New York society girl to tbe rich and eligiule"
bachelor. .-., ,
Close following ber is another pioneer Cbau
tauquan who sits in the pit of tbecreat audi
torium, which compares to tbe "bald-headed
row" in our theaters. A pious, sedate, modest,
unassuming character is lie, usually a minister.
He is in fact the typical countty parson who
. presides over his little flock and ministers to
their wants year in and year out for a few hon
ored per annum and tbe kindly contributions of
his congregation. He came to Chautauqua
when it was a camn meeting, and as yet hardly
perceives the immensity of the idea. He likes
tbe morning prayer meetings, and takos little
stock in tho 'high-toned" entertainments now
so often given. Pious, good and true, honest
as the simplicity of his life, be constitutes but
an atom of the great mass at the Assembly
Here comes the college student. It is a
niusicale and he intends to enjoy it. Usually
he is a mixture nf Latin, Greek, football and
cigarettes. Sometimes, however, the first
mentioned are lacking. He is a jolly fellow
and tou cannot help but like him even if be
is "stuck on" bis athletic self.
There, too woman with the two Utile ones at
ber side, is the mother. She is sei.sible and
kind like all mothers and gains from Chau
tauqua tbe best there is in it. Tbe children
grow healthy in their romps and games, rosy
cheeked and possessed of ravenous appetites
tbat make tbe boarding house keeper despair
for giving them "children's" rates, and the
can and winds tan tbe little hands brown as
thote of tbe little Indian children who nsed to
play on. tbe shores of Chautauqua a century
Sauntering up tbe walk comrt tbe best fel
low e find at any summer resort, the plain,
practical, everyday business man. Reluctantly
lie throws his cigir away as be approaches tho
Amphitheater, and takes tbe nearest seat. It
is he who thoroughly enjoys Chautauqua. He
doos not take in all of the lecture, attend tbe
college, nor does he care particularly if be miss
a whole day without an entertainment. He
gets the full benefit of tbe sailboats,-tbe bath
ing grounds, tbe breezes, tbe shade trees, and
hiB private box of cigars.
THE EXQUISITE SU1IMEE GXBL.
Laughing and fluting along comes tbe sum
mer girl. She is a numerous and a positiv
quantity. She develops more popularity and
friends than any other character. Sho is pret
ty, dressed in the latest costumes with the mas
culine shirt front, a jaunty tenuis cap and tbe
daintiest patent leather shoes. She fully real
izes tbat she is quite irresistible, and is
very politic with tue sparkling blue or
brown eyes and the vixenish smile. Ice
cream ana soua water are her failings,
and she caters to her fallings with natural
Instinct, ah every young man knows to bis
sorrow. How cleverly, bow artfully, she leads
the poor, unsophisticated youth to tbe regions
where tbe cool water and cream are lonno, and
with a clever smile remarks about the "hot
"Half a dollar, please," from the lips of the
waiter finally awakes him from his dream.
"Auemblv Murruld, PrrrsBUBO Did.
PATCH," are the last sounds ws bear as we
leave and tbey represent the Cbau
tauqna small boy who awakens you before the
sun is up with bis cries.
What an Interesting portrait wonld a compos
ite photograph of all the characters make. Yet.
with all the differences and variations of char
acter tbat we find, how well they harmonize. I
will sot say harmonize, but better, bow each
one finds a pleasure peculiarly suited to him
self or herself.
Two of the Interesting characters that have
been here this week are Mr. W. E. Cnrtls, the
executive officer ot the Pan-American Con
gress, and Rev. Dr. M. C. Lockwood. of Clevel
and, who lectnred on "Hypnotism." Mrs Cur
tls is a man of wide information and travel.
Mr. Lockwood is a man of wide observation
SO SLEEPISO PLACES LEFT.
"Roost In the trees or sleep three in a cot,"
is the question brought home to the late ar
rival at Chautauqua, Still tbey come and still
tbey stay. A Chautauqua boarding house Is
like the proverbial omnibus tbsre Is always
room for one more. Several of tbe Assembly'
policemen have evidently joined the "Sods of
Rest." No one enjoys a. ploasant nap under
the shade of a trto better than one of our
blue-coated officers ot tbe law. Where there
are no tree they appropriate the artificial
shade ol an umbrella.
Upon the register of the Hotel Athenssum
are tho following Pittsburgers: H. Hanmich,
James Robinson, J. W. Langdon, J. 1. Devuix,

fSrsCIAL TELEOB4M TO TU StSrATCR.1
Atlantic Crrr, August 2. Tho people
associated with the Reading Railroad in the
project of a million dollar hotel for North At
lantic City are meeting with opposition. Al
though Council granted unanimously the use
of Massachusetts avenue for its tracks to make
passible tbe big depot which goes with tbe
hotel, property owners are contemplating In
junctions. The railroad people are ready to
abandon the privilege of a double track on the
avenne: but even then, It is said, s3me prop
erty owners will fight. The company has a
great many options, and threatens to forfeit
them and go elsewhere. The botel.it is under.
stood, is not to be built by tbe railroad, but by
capitalists working witb it
Another sad death is recorded here. A bright
young lad, not autte 15, who was alive and ap
parently hearty considerably less than a week

in his coffin. His name was Fred Fisher. Jr.
He was tbe son of Fred Fisher, & well known

gloom over tbe guests of tbe hotel where he
and his parents were guests.

Harrison and Blnlne Not the Only Great
Visitor Cape May Bai Had.
nrictai. telkobam to tub dispatch.!
Cape Mat, N. J., August 2. The last week
hat been delightful at tbe seashore. The rains
bare ceased, the temperature is perfect, and
nature never before flung out banners of sum
mer welcome in a more enticing manner. It
has not been quite as good a week as was tbo
last one, but this evening the place is well
crowded again by the best of society. All the
hotels, except two are crowded, and even turn
ing people away because of lack of accommo
dation. In order that this state of affairs may
be remedied it is expected that several smaller
hotels will be erected next winter.
President Harrison came here Wednesday
evening, and quite surprised the natives. He
was not expected until the following evening.
In thinking the matter over he felt tbat if be
left 24 boors ahead he could avoid tbe immense
crowds that gather about tbe various stations
on the route. He is expected to remain until
Tuesday, and Mr. Blaine's visit is tbe talk of
the place. Tbe coming of men high in office to
Cape May calls to inlnu the fact tbat in times
gone by five Presidents and many other men of
national fame have visited Cape May.
HENBY CLAY'S VISIT.
Among the first prominent men to visit Cape
May was Henry Clay, tbe greatest statesman
of bis time. This was in 1847. As soon as tbe
nensof bis expected arrival spread Cape May
began to fill up. Among tbe first to arrivo was
United States Senator James A. Bayard, of
Delaware, followed by big crowds from New
York and Philadelphia. On the morning of
Monday, August 16. the great statesman with
his party leit Philadelphia on a steamboat,
then the'only means of access to the Cape, and
arrived at tho island, about 1 o'clock in the
aftcrn oon. There was a rousing reception and
a big dinner and next day Mr. Clay spoke.
About 7o'clock on the morning ot Friday, Au
gust 29, 1S47, the steamboat New Haven let lall
her anchor opposite the place, baying left New
York tbe previous afternoon with a number of
eminent citizens to invite Mr. Clay to visit that
city. Among them were Recorder Tallmadge,
Nicholas Deane, M. G. Hart, Morris Franklin,
Horaoe Qreeley, Matthew L. Davis and James
A. Coffin. However Mr. Clay decided to ac
cept on account of bis health.
THE PBESIDEUTAL QUESTS.
The first President to visit Cape May was
Franklin Pierce, who visited the island in 1855.
He was wolcomad by tbe City Council, and a
public reception was held. Mr. Buchanan
paid an extended visit after the war, but was
not at the Cape any time during his official
term. Tbe Rev. E. Y. Buchanan, a brother ot
tbe late President, who is over 80, has been
spending every season hero In his cottage. This
year he did not come, but his cottage is occu
pied by ex-President Harrity, ot Philadelphia,
the late ex-Deuiocratle State Chairman of
President Grant was a visitor here for five
different summers. He stopped at old .Con
gress Hall (burned in 1878). One year ha
brought his entire Cabinet with bim.

tbe undertow. .
Tho noted boardwalk has been torn up for
scores of yards, and it was with great difficulty
that the adjoining bathing bouses were saved.
Enormous oak pilings were at once driyen deep

heaviest bulkheads ever seen here have been
formed. During the storms this week tons of
the clay sub-stratum were washed ut, exposing
old cedar trees and rocks, reminders of the

a gap in tho beacb and bathing grounds which
only tbe slow reformation of the beach can fill
in many months. "Founder" James A. Brad
ley announced by circular yesterday tbat he
would bold a "Neptune Jnbilee" at the repaired
portion of tbe boardwalk last evening. Tho
jubilee consistod insbort speeches and military
musio oy inn Dcaca oanas.
Mr. Bradley owns tbe beach and all riparian
Tights. Therefore the burden of repairing the
walk and cuts in tbe beach as well as the main
tenance of beacb lights, pavilions and bathing
matters, fall upon him. This expense Is con
siderably over 125,000 yearly. He is recom
pensed by the business at the three bathing
grounds.fsales of lots and so on.
WABFAEB AGAINST LIQUOB.
Since their origin and during 20 years of un-
procedent development, not a drop of liquor
has been sold as a beverage in Asbury Park or
Ocean Grove. A clause In the charter of each
community and a reservation in the deeds
granted by James A. Bradley and in tbe leases
sold by tbe Ocean Grove Campmeeting Asso
ciation provides for tbe reversion or tbe estates
granted to the original owners, if liquor selling
pcMiniitu. ing oiate taws, uuaer wmen
these proprietors gained corporation privileges,
provide for tbe exclusion of all liquor dealers
within a mile of either resort.
So rapid have both communities outgrown
the expectations of their temperate and relig
ous founders tbat tbe restriction Is enlorced
now, only in a measure; and, it cannot truth
fully be averred tbat intemperance Is wholly
banished in either Ocean Grove or Asbury
Park. Many of the drugstores in Asbury Park
have done a flourishing business in hanallng
"wet goods" for tho past 12 years. The profits
are so great tbat but few can resist the tempta
tion. To-day there Is a warrant out for the ar
rest of Robert B. Cusack for selling liquor
without a prescription,
THE DBUCSTOBE SALOONS.
At the drugstores which sell liquor there Is
a well-equipped bar, and admission is easily
gained. Prices are about double ordinary
saloon charges. It has been claimed that these
stores employ "runners" who inform the bibu
lous where they can easily and safely slake
their thirst nith a supply of tbe ardent. Some
bootblacks along the beach and at tbo hotels
are Instructed to quietly sound their patrons;
and, if all is well, tbey then hand to their cus
tomers cards beannz the address of the stores.
By cautiously approaching tbe clerks at the
"nliofmfl.,1 nrtn aliAtalniv n mini n1mns. nnw
one will be introduced to a little backroom
where nothimr is lacking in tbe way of beer, ale
or stronger drinks of any kind. The bootblacks
and otber-agents of tbe drugstores receive a
commission for every man they send.
Anyone with a physician's prescription for
spirltus ferment), or anything else, can have it
filled, carry it away and have no questions
asked. Nearly all tbe drugstores readily fill
sneb orders, and some of the doctots rito them
The hotels are not reluctant as a rule in fill
ing the orders of good paying gnest. There
are very few hotels not supplied regularly with
cases of beer, champagne and packages of
other similar refreshment. Large quantities,
from a case to a barrel, aro easily obtalnod
from Avon, Long Branch or Red Bank. The
freater part, however, supplied to cottage and
otel people comes from New York and Phila
delphia by freight or express.
HOW ONE HOTEL WOBKS IT.
One hotel has hit upon the brilliant scheme ot
providing its guests witb order cards. Sup
plied witb these, tbe boarders fill them out and
their waiters bring ou tbe sparkling draughts.
These cards read as follows: "Please serve
from my private stock bottles of and
charge corkage to my account ." The
chargo appears in tbe weekly bills for enter
tainment. Even Ocean Grove cannot escape tbe people
with an inclination to "take something lor
their stomach's sake." Numbers of hotel men,
In the great campmeetlng resort, assert that
hardly a trunk comes Into their houses tbat does
not contain liquors to be used, presumably in
cases ot emergency. And the emergency is
sure to arise alter a cool bath In tbo sea or a
warm walk in tbo sun. The Ocean Grove
authorities own the two drugstores within
their jurisdiction and lease them on short
terms to carefully watched men. A mere sus
picion is sufficient ground for withholding tbe
renewal of a lease, and, besides, every prescrip
tion for spirituous liquors is recorded and re
ported to the association. The druggists are
not permitted to fill a physician's prescription
unlobslt com o from a resident practitioner In
Asbury Park or Ocean Grove. And be must
further have registered his diploma at tbe
county seat and at the office of the Ocean
Grove Campmeeting Association.
The ordinances read as follows:
"Every such prescription shall be recorded in
a special book for tbe purpose, which shall give
the article prescribed, quantity, physician's
name, patient's name, and address and date.
"No prescription shall be renewed without a
new prescription from the physician in charge.
"No copies of prescriptions for liquors shall
be given, and tho original prescription shall be
retained by tbe druggist.
"Xhe sale of such articles as 'Scheidam
Scbnopps', 'Wild Cherry,' and the various so
called outers aro forbidden."
The pharmacists are not allowed to sell tobac
co in "any form; and It cannot be obtained at any
store in Ocean Grove. Many of the hotels, how
ever, sell cigars more or less openlv, although
this is punished, when found out, by a fine ot So
for each and every offense.
i"et, while mlractlons of the association
ordinance at the Ocean Grove dru" stores aro
few and far between, the thirst j and knowing
are easily supplied by sundry persons whose
secret trade i uot so much as suspected, even
when an occasional policeman is seen stagger
ing about tbe camp grounds. Certain hotels
have back passageways leading te cool rooms
where beer and whisky are sola under pledge
of secrecy and at prices that would appall the
ordinary drinker. As a cry of horror would
arise from the entire community if theso places
were disclosed,.and the consequences would be
iaui to iuo conunuAnce oi their proprietors in
Ocean Grove, the business is conducted in the
most cautious manner imaginable. Though
there are more intemperate men seen at tne
hotels and on tbe beach and walks at tbese twin
resorts, Ocean Grovo ana Asbury Park, than
ever before, yet the proportion is probably less
than when tbe resorts contained but a tew
thousand people. Now there are, as railroad
statistics show, nearly 2,000,000 visitors here
FOUNDEB BBADLEr A NEWSDEALEB.
Sunday papers have been selling all summer
at 10 cents each by the newsdealers. Mr. Brad
ley has determined to break tbe combination
and secure the papers for visitors hero at 5
or 7 cents. Last Sunday he purchased a large
quantity of the dealers and the Union News
Company at 7 cents and employed boys to sell
them at 5 cents each. This procedure almost
destroys the Sunday business of tbo newsdoal
ers and slightly affects the monopoly controlled
by the Union News Company. Tbe dealers say
the founder should attack the news company,
which controls all sales along this coast, and so
enable local newsdealers to sell at a lower

fSFZCIAI, TELEOBAM TO TUB DISPATCH.
Koohesteb, N. J., August 2. Bomewhere
on earth where land and sea shall meet there
may uo a lovner spot
than Ontario Beach, the
charming resort o f
Western New York, but
if so, tbe poople who
live near it are certain
ly blessed beyond their
fellow men. There are
regions, it is trne.wbere
nature adopts a grander
manner than here, but
tben it is also true that that beauty is not an
affair of tbe greatest magnitude. Yet Ontario
Beach is beautiful, and as one strolls at even
tide beneath the towering branches of the big
elms that skirt the broad walks In trout of the
monster hotels and pavilions, listening to tbe
sweet music of tbo bands and tbe hoarser mur
mur of the ceaseless waves as tbey break npon
tbe sand, or watches the golden orb of light
dashing his fiery glances toward the western
horizon, while his slanting beams glisten and
dance along the foam-crested waves of old
Ontario, be maybe forgiven for thinking tbat
tbe same is a dream, not a reality.
Ontario Beach Is a comparatively newnlens-
ure resort, scarcely a half hour's ride from tbe
Flower City of the Empire State. On the
soutb shore of Lake Ontario, at its confluenco
with the Genesee river, but two hours ride
from Niagara Falls, and on a direct line from
that point to tbe famed Thousands Islands of
the St, Lawrence, is located Ontario Beacb.
Maimificent summer hotels afford nleasnre.
seekers every comfort and luxury to be found
tages and pagodas line the lake shore, and
make tho view one of beauty. Crossing the
Geneseo river, Summerville, tbe cottage home
of many people ot wealth. Is seen, while five
minutes' walk east brings the visitor to Wind
sor Beacb, another charming resort. On tbe
water side one may look out, out, out, and
naught can be seen but the lake, while Its
white-capped waves roar and rumble and
break upon the golden sands up and down as
far as the eye can reach.
AT Ontario Beach every diversion and attrac
traotlon is offered. All about are charming
points for excursionists and tho tourist may
lind a flavor of Bohemian llfo and rustlo sim
plicity that contrasts witb the ostentation of
other resorts. Royal mail steamers leave tbe
long piers dally for Canadian resorts ana every
other night the magnificent floating palace, the
steamer Pilgrim, makes the trip to the en
chanted Thousand Islands, and nnmberloss
steamboats run hourly to pretty llttln resorts
along tbo picturesque lake sbore. Frm the
foot of the creat falls of tbe Genessee, inside
tb confines of tbe city ot Rochester, steamers
leave for Ontario Beach, taking one down the
winding Genesee through scenery as varied, as
beautiful and as graud as can bo found in

for the past week, and it is rumored that there
were birds nests in some ot them wben taken

The smiling countenance of Colonel Hawk
Ins, of tho Tenth Regiment, was seennbout
town last week. The Colonel bad a political
conference at tbs Monongabela House last
Tuesday, and as a result be will probably help
to make the laws of tbe State in the capacity
of Senator next fall.
Colonel James Strketeb, of Washington,
Pa., speut a few days in the city last week on
political business. The Colonel is Chairman of
the Washington Countv Democratic Commit
tee and tbe tallest man In the National Guard,
being an even 7 feet high with bis boots on.

The pay for the tour of camp was to have
been sent down hut week, bat as usual in the
little money matters in which the State is con
nected, a number of delays will be experienced.
All the organizations in tbe First and Third
Brigades, and some of tbe regiments ot ths
Second Brizado, bave already been paid off,
but the Pittsburg regiments are 3 til patiently
All the officers of the Eighteenth Regi
ment were measured by an Eastern army tailor
last week, and It is probable tbat tbe record ot
organization of having tbe best dressed officers
in tbe Guard will be kept up. Handsome whits
flannel uniforms are beinir contemplated lor
the next outing of the regiment, some of the
officers having already sent in their orders.
White duck pants for the enlisted men are also
being talked or.
Colonel "Thomas J. Hudson, of Governor
Beaver's staff, sent in his resignation las: week.
Tbe cause of the action is said to be due to the
fact that Colonel Hudson was overstepped in
every way daring the tour of camp duty just
ended, and that his position as Chief of Artil
lery was made odious to him because bH au
thority was completely taken away. Who his
successor will be is hara to say, but it is ru
mored tbat Lieutenant Lew Brawn, of Battery
B, may bave the commission ottered bim.
On account of the good showing made by the
Fourteenth Regiment at Mt. Gretna, an effort
Will be made to seenre an additional company
In the regiment. Tbe battalion now consists of
sevon companies, and it is extremely probable
tbe oiber company will be secured. The Four
teenth made quite a record iu camp as a
political organization, and should Mr. Dela
mater be the next Governor of the State be
will hive a kindly feeling for the Pittsburg or
ganization, as it entertained him nicely during
his visit to camp.
Accordino to the report of Lieutenant
Rodgers, and ex-army officer, wbo was on tba
ground at Mt. Gretna to inspect the guard
generally and to compare It with the showing
made in otherStates, the Eighteenth Regiment
made the best record in the division on guard
duty. With ten minutes' instruction to a de
tail about to mount guard, by a competent
officer, there Is no excuse for some of the
blunders made by sentinels while on duty at
last camp. Mr. Rogers, however, bas stated
that the prior showing of sentinels in many
residents can not be wondered at when tbe
lack of knowledge of many ot tbe officers is
taken into consideration.
At a meeting of the Inspectors of Rifla
Practice of the different organizations
in tbs State held at Mr. Gretna daring
camp, tbe details for tbe brigade and
division shooting contests were decided on.
t The match in the Second Brigade for the Dela.
mater trophy will be held at Indiana, Septem
ber 12 and 13, on the range of the Fifth Regi
ment at that point. Tbe teams will consist ot
seven men from each organization and will be
shot undnr tbe nsual rules. Commencing September-
15 at Mt. Gretna tbe regular yearly
State matches will be held. Tbe teams will
consist of Ave men nnd tbe Inspector, and flvs
days' pay will be allowed. Owinr to the treat
ment received at Creedmoor by tbe Pennsyl
vania team last year, it was decided to keep
out of all future matches on tbose erounds.
Reports wbicb were received from the different
Inspectors as to tbe progress made in rifla
practice this year, showed rather a falling oil
from tbe standing of last year, althouzh it Is
expected by the close of the season ths average
can be picked up.
