Engineers Allow Property Own
ers Until July 31 to Protest
Owners whose property Is assessed for
street Improvements under the Borland
amendment to the District appropriation
bill will be given until Friday, July 31
at noon to show cause why the Im
provements should not be undertaken,
according to an announcement of the
Engineer Department of the District
The Commissioners have completed a
list of streets to be resurfaced, but pro
tests on the part of those who will be
called upon to bear a part of the ex
pense may result In Its revision. Street
repairs heretofore have been made un
der a lump appropriation. The Borland
amendment, however, provides that one
half of the cost of such Improvement
shall be assessed on abutticr property
and the remainder shall be paid equally
by the District and Federal govern
ments. In consequence of the new arrange
ment a number of protests against the
proposed Improvements have reached
the Engineer Department.
The law does not require that notice
be given the property owners, but the
Commissioners decided that this was the
fair and proper proceeding.
Notices have been sent to the owners
of all property affected by the new law.
and careful consideration, it was said
today, will be given to all protests.

Nome Mail Man Explains Late
Arrival of Reports to Mr.
Postmaster J. S. Bakhe, at Nome,
Alaska, has Just presented to Third
Assistant Postmaster General Dockery
one of the simplest and most convincing

In possession of an exceptionally fine
photograph of two steamships pushing
their way through ice In Nome harbor
June 1. when the rest of the United
States Is usually sweltering.
Some months ago the Third Assistant
Postmaster General complained to the
postmaster at Nome that his reports
covering the March quarter seemed al
ways delayed. In answer the postmas-
ff nrenenteri n nhntflcrntlh Of the llrst
J mall getting into the harbor nt Nome,
June 1.
The revenue cutter Bear, the "good
angel" of the northern seas, is cleav
ing a pathway and towing the steam
ship Corwln. Navigation is supposed
to open the first of June, but it Is
frequently no easy matter to get In the
first malls from the States. When no
malls come in. of course, none go out.
The photograph was taken at 11
o'clock at night, another unusual fea
ture, for It shows that the light must
have been fine ana strong, in June,
Nome has the most daylight of any
American city of consequence.
Here is the postmaster's letter Inclos
Ine the nhotocraoh:
"The Honorable Third Assistant Post
master General: The picture was iaen
at 11 o'clock p. m.. on June 1. 1914.
and will show you the arrival of first
mall on the revenue cutter near, ana
will explain to you why you do not get
my report,- covering March quarter
until the latter nait of June."
Governor Dockery says that the ex
planation is both lucid ana convincing.
and is accepted.

Last nlsht's shower did not extend
far enough up-country to affect the
Fotomac locally, and the water Is clear
er today than It was yestcrdajr. As a
consequence, the fishing is very good
around Analostnn Island, and several
bass were taken early today in the
Little river. There were a few yellow
perch hooked by the fishermen, but
the real quarry was the bass.
The wide stretch of still water above
Great Falls has trlven up some very
fine specimen of bass this month, and
every morning the early cars carry
groups of vvashlngtonlans to those
grounds. Both large and small mouths
have been taken, and good tlshermen
differ as to which furnishes the greater
sport. Both live bait and artificial lures
have been used with success but local
sportsmen are partial to the latter, and
a comparison of results seams to Jus
tify their choice.
If there are in Washington any
who hold to the old and erroneous
notion that the fisherman's life Is a
lazy one. a trip with some of our
local enthusiasts will Quickly dis
illusion him. Both body and mind
must be on the alert If the best re
sults are secured. Between rowing,
casting, retrieving-, and now and
then playing your fish with every
nerve and muscle taut, there is
enough in a dnv's time to make the
fisherman seek his pillow early.
The following places bear the reputa
tion of being good naning grounds: U)
"The Parlor," a pool above Boiling
Rock, straight out from Fletcher. The
water is deep and swift, and the pool
bears its name because the fish are
known to congregate there. (2 Middle
Rock, above the Chain Bridge. It Is
well to arrange to a have a boat taken
up on the flood tide, as It Is Impossible
to moke headway against an ebb tide.
(3) "The Hens and Chickens," of f the

swift. Care must be exercised. 40 near

Maryland's Coal Output
Gains $87,967 in Value
Maryland's coal output in 1313, while
184,199 short tons below the production
In 1912, showed a gain In value of JS7.357
over the preceding year, according to a
report on the State's coal Industry made
public today by the Geological Sur
vey. Last year's production, while far
below the record year of 1907, when
5.532,6 tons were mined, was very close
to the average for the last sixteen
years. The total value of last year's
output was $5,927,839. The tonnage was
JI.779.Kn? short tons.

and surface discoloratlons and curing
Irritation and pimples. Advt.

required to the big scenes without over
doing. The production of "The Wolf bv the
