Steel Racks to be in new Building Capacity can be Increased? Waiting for A'chitects Retnrn. A special meeting of the Library Board was held last night foi the pur pose of appointing an assistant librar ian. Miss Emma Fraser was appoint ed as the assistant and the board also decided to have on the list a substi tute assistant, so Miss Marie Bradley, of Market street, was appointed to fill that position. The board also decid ed to purchase a complete set of Charles Dickens works, and a number of volumes of history and travel, as it seems a number of people of this city would rather have them than fiotion. These will be the last books pur chased until the librarj is moved to the new building, unless a special bargain is offered. The board is now waiting the re turn of Mr. Greenley, the architect, who is now in Europe. He is to tell what color is to be used in the wood work of the new library. At the next meeting of the board, which will be held in July, the furniture for the new building will be purchased. The book racks will be made of steel. They will be seven feet high. The racks will be erected in the back room of the library. As the circula tion of the library increases the racks will be fixed in such a way that other sections can be added to them by placing steel rods on the top of them. The holding capacity of the library is supDosed to be 50,000 vo'umes, but by this scheme the holding capacity will hold just four times 01 200,000 volumes all told. CADETSPRACTICINC FOR FLAG DRILL.

SUNSHINE AT THE RESORTS. i Boynton Beach will Have a Steamer Beginning Tomorrow Afternoon. SEA BREEZE- CAY. E ?eryone is glad to see the sunshine again, but none more than the pleas nre resort managers. Ai Boynton Beach a new feature has been added which will prove a decided attraction. This is a boat, the H. G. Ellis, to be mn from South Ambov, Tottenville and this city to the beach every after noon and evening. The landing here is to be made at the steamboat dock at the foot of Smith street. The first triD will be made tomorrow. The boat leaves Sonth Amboy at 1.80 to morrow afternoon, leaves Perth Am boy at 1.45 o'clock and Tottenville at 3.10. The last trip up, from this city is 8.45 o'clock. This will doubtless be a great attraction as it avoids the long walk after alighting from the trolley $ars and also gives a pleasant sail up the sound. At Sea Breeze the weather has made the season backward. The two boats, Josephine and Etta May have not been running during the wet weather, one being sufficient to carry the traffic, but with the warm weather again, . both will go into commission and the 3rowds will be attracted to the breezy j resort on the point. It is a delightful < spot. FIRST GRAND PICNIC The first grand picnic to be held at John Nelson's Summit Grove, will take place on Friday, July 3rd. The committee in charge hope to make this % great affair. Two handsome prizes will be awarded to the best lady and gentleman waltzer who attend the picnio. FINEST 1 ABLE BOARD . .IN THE CITY. .

Bosses Say They Will Have Plenty at Work Monday. The trouble between the boss paint ers and the journeymen painters seems to be growing wider and wider every day. Today the bosses have a number of men at work and claim that by 1 Monday the strike will be entirely broken because they will have plenty ' of men here. Two new firms of puint es have been formea and today all of the journeymen are at work either in ' Tottenville, Woodbridge, or this city. 1 The new firms claim that thev have 1 plenty of work and will keep the men 1 oging lor a number of n onfts. The 1 painters say the reason they cannot 1 prevent non union men working is 1 because at the present time they are ' all doing old work. When they start on some of the new buildings the painters claim thev will call off ali ' the mechanics. STILL THEY COME. i More Entries for Boat Race Received All are Welcome? A Good Race.

(60 SMITH STREET TO REACH THE FERRY. People are Discussing the Route the Traction Company Will Take When Change is Made NOTHING OFFICIAL Inquiries at the Raritan Traction Com pany's Office Were Referred to J. C, McCoy who Could not be Located This Morning- Down High Street to Fayette is Suggested as the Probable. Much interest is manifested in the story published in the Evening News Wednesday telling of the radical changes to be made within the next twelve months by the Staten Island Rapid Transit Railroad which includes changing the ferry house in this city from the foot of Smith street to Fay ette street. This evidently means many changes in the city. The new location for the ferry house will have the greatest effect on the traction company, whose tracks now run down Smith street. All inquiries as to the movements of the trolley company made at the office of the Raritan Traction Company were re ferred to Mr. McCoy, by Superintend ent Rock. An effort to see Mr. Mc Coy was unsuccessful as he was not in his office at the Raritan Copper Works. Very little could be learned officially. It seems certain, however, that the traction company will extend its line to the new ferry, but just what route will be chosen is undecid ed or at least is not ready for publi cation. Those interested in the matter make several suggestions. One is to run through Fayette street fiY>m State street and then around iVflmN-^Jreet. The one which seems the most however, is that the company will ask for a franchise down High street from Smith street, thence to the ferry at the foot of Fayette street and thence aronnd Front street and up Smith street again. This will give the cars one continuous run and save the swinging of the pole at the top of Smith street hill and the turning of seats. The cars, as they come down Smith street, will turn into High street and around to Front street and up Smith. This rim cannot be con armed by any of the officials of the road and is merely a plan mapped out by those who are disoussing the change. It is expected that Fayette street will develop into a business street and will give the plaoe more of the city ippearance. The abandonment of the Smith street ferry leaves a location for a public dock. The men who have made the largest fortunes in business are those who have been the most extensive adver tisers WEATHER. The forecast received at the local Signal Station is for clear and warmer with var iable winds. HIGH TIDE.
