Strieker and James Voris. New Brnnswick sent a very large delegation, for the twenty-six already gone to Baltimore, will be followed by the Exalted Bnler W. H. Everson and fifteen members. A plan has been mapped ont by the Baltimore Elks by which on applica tion at the registration building the names and lodging of each delegate visiting the city dnring their conven tion this week can be obtained. As each delegate enters the registration building he is fnrnished with a card *' on whicn are blai^ for his name, lodge and his local residence. These cards will then be assorted for fntnre reference. Exalted Raler Charles R. Schirm sent an invitation to Mayor McLane to review the parade on Wednesday from the reviewing stand, which will be erected 011 Howard street, near Lexington. It is reported from Atlantic Oity that the lodge from that place wonld parade in bathing costumes. A mess-, age was sent to the lodge by Mr. Schirm to ascertain whether this re port was correct or not, and in reply He received a message that it had not been decided. Mr. Joseph tialabes. secretary of the parade committee, said,, however, that this costame ' would not be worn. "Admiral" Pot, the midget of White Plains, N. Y. , is a member of the Elks, and is expected to attend the Baltimore reunion. He will be a feature of the parade. "Admiral" Dot is only a little over three feet high, and is expected to win the prize for the shortest Elk. Mr. O.

The steamer will pro bably come from Philadelphia. A bier kite was flying Friday night in Baltimore and attracted much attention in the centre of the city. Attached to this kite is a large banner on which is: "Elks Coming. Show Them Maryland Hospitality." A powerful searchlight was thrown on the kite at intervals and created much wonder, as .the attachments of the kite could not be seen and it appeared as though floating in midair.

Marions Will Have Two Batter ies on Hand To-morrow in Case one is not Enough. ORANGE HAS RECORD. Tomorrow afternoon at 5" o'clock the Marions and Orange will meet in a great battle on the diamond. The teams will bat in the following order : Marions Orange A. G. Moorehead, 2b Onsick, ss Mitchell, rf Bassford, rf Lamar, 3b Dietrich, If Lindeman, p McDonald, lb Bird, If Smith, 2b McPhiilips, cf Leonard, 3b Kiernan ss O'Noil, c Galvin, lb Hatohings, cf Connell;, c Deegan, p A glance at the make-up of the locals is sufficient to convince the fails that the Marions will present a strong front when they tackle their old rivals. Two pitchers, Lindeman and McPhiilips, will bo on hand for the home team and it is likely that th? Hoboken twirler will be selected to pitoh the game, in which case Mc Phiilips will be used in the outfield beoause of his good hitting. The rooters all know Lindeman to be a clever pitcher and they are con fident that he can hold the Orange players safe. Hoffner has been ill for several days and on that account Peter Lamar has been seoured to play third base. In order to give place to one of the pitch ers "Tommy" Lyons will not be in Tuesday's game but will be on hand in oaae of emergencies. The locals will thus have two complete batteries in the field, McPhiilips and Connelly and Lindeman and Lamar. For Orange, Deegan and O'Neil will probably be the battery? Deegan is the mute twirler who was once with the New York National League team. He has speed to burn and has good control of the ball. The Marions will have a hard proposition in Deegan and it will take some good hitting to win the game. Most of the names In the Orange line-up are familiar to the fans and they are all clever players. CATHOLIC SOCIETIES SECOND CONVENTION. Held Large Meeting in Newark ? Bishop? McFaul was Present.

Small Growds Ventured Out on Saturday Night? But Many Made up for it Yesterday. GROUNDS WERE WET. The severe storm on Saturday killed the business at the pleasure resorts in this vicinity. Saturday night is the big time for all ot them, but last Sat urday was an exoeption. At Boynton Beach the orowd was very slim, but it was not the fault of the manager. A double attraction, however, is being made for next week. The Sea Breeze boat was running as usual and some crossed the sound to danoe, but they were scarce. Yester day was much better and a large num ber were on the point. Pulaski Park Saturday had a good crowd. It was their resrnlar Saturday night dance and it was easily reached. The picnic at Union Grove had to be abandoned. Bargains in real estate are to be fount) in the real estate column on pacta 8. FINEST TABLE BOARD IN THE CITY AT WOBBESLL'S, $5.00 Per Week. 40 SMITH STREETS WATER MAIN NEAR BRIDGE. Water Committee of Board of Al dermen Discussing Location of Extention Under River. AFFORDS "PROTECTION. Present Main is Aortas a Meadow and Much Difficulty was Experienced? Plac ing the New Main near the New Bridge Weald Protect It From Vessels :atj Lew Tide? May Soon Advertise for Bids. The Water Committee of the Board of Aldermen haH under consideration the extension of the new pipe line under the Raritan river to this side. Already work has began in laying this main from the stand pipe at Run you to the sonth shore of the Raritan and before it is completed it is proba ble the Water Committee will have advertised for the extension farther. The question before the committee is what route to follow. The present pipe line runs across considerable meadow land and it was necessary to obtain permission from the owners to lay the main. In the middle of this meadow is a brook and the contractors experienced much trouble in getting the pipe laid. Then, during low tide, the river in some parts is shallow and vesrfela have often struck the pipe, doing more or less damage. The committee now proposes to have the new pipe line follow the new road being built to the south approach to the bridge and have the pipe pass under the river about twenty-live feet west of the brid ge. This, it is point ed out, will not only avoid the marsh lands, hut, the pipe being so near the bridge, that struoture will protect it from passing vessels. The matter will be taken up at the next meeting of the committee and probably a definite ronte will be fixed. LOCAL ITEMS.

The suit in which George Sklencher is trying to recover $500 insurance on goods destroyed in the shop for which he is serving two and a half years for tiring, was continued before Judge Schenok this morning and the prospects arc that the case will go to the jury to night. The case has been delayed for three or four days because of the inability to get the plaintiff out of State prison so that he could testify on his own behalf at the trial. Judge Schenck, early last week, granted a writ of habeas corpus to bring him to the court, here hut the man's lawyer, Judge U. T. Gowenhoven, thought an order of thiB sort should be obtained from Justice Fort which he secured on Thursday. Sklencher was pro duced in court today.

Real estate 1 Real estate! Read he bargains in speoial column on P?ge ?. ? * * Yesterday was a great day for the fishermen and they took advantage of it, by coming to this city from all the surrounding towns and cities in great numbers. The fishermen yesterday, that is, a large majority of them, were from ont of town, and were attracted hither by the ^reports of those who have seonred their share, and perhaps more, of the finny inhabitants of the waters of Raritan and Prinoesa Bays, and also of the sound. While the storm of Saturday inter fered somewhat with the abundance of fish, very fair catches were report oil' by thoso who went out yesterday, even though mauy of them were suoh "duffers" that they didn't know how to use the oars, or how to handle a crab without getting into a lawsuit with his teeth. Early yesterday morning all the boats on hand at Liddle's, VanPelt's and Walters' were hired and many more could Have been rented had they been available. The largest oatoh re ported at VanPelt's was twenty-five, bnt they were all well up and no one had any "kicks ooming. " Two gentlemen from Newark, who were too bashful to give their names and who hid behind a door so that the reporter conld not take their photo graphs for publication, showed a catch of nineteen and refused to tell how many more they threw away. A party of four yonng men, who went out in one of VanPelt's skiffs about 4 o'clock in the morning and returned at noon, had sixteen nice ones, and another crowd of three ex hibited eleven as a mark of their angling ability. Vl M j Commodore Garret V a' ~ nice bunch yesterday and also this morning. One noticeably fine oatoh was made by merry half-dozen from some nearby town. By reqnest the name of the fish canght is not pub lished. The Alpine Baseball Clnb went fish ing in two boats and secured four toad fish and a sand porgy. For chal lenges address their manager, Qeorge Woitscheck. The best fishing was a short distanoe off shore and not, way ont as is usual ly the case, so that few were fatigued by the row to the fishing arrounds. On the whole the d;ty was a gala one for Perth Amboy fishing expeditions, and all got what they came for. PLANS FOR PICNIC.
