This morning the bay is cover ed as far as the naked eye can see, or in fact, as far as one can see with a pair of marine glasses with all kinds of boats with parties who are out with hook and line trying their luck. It is almost impossible for one to hire a boat along shore today, the demand for all kinds of small crafts being so great. Yesterday William HartmaD and a friend went out and when they returned last night they brought with them nearly 200 weak fish and a few bine fish. William Eagle of Totten ville, and a friend got 114 weak fish, a few flounders and blue fish yester day off Ward's Point. This seems to be the ideal spot. The last few days great schools of weak fish have been seen near them. "Bub" Ward took a party out yesterday afternoon, thev came back with 70, and William Morgan got 45. Captain Ellfa and a friend got twenty. Oaptain Ellis said this morn ing that in many years he bad not seen so many sharks in the river and bay as he did yesterday. Schools of them passed by the Captain's boat. Their average length was about nine feet long. Milton Edgar has a party out on his launch Helen B. today. Thev are to go down as far as Sandy Hook. Yesterday they got only four weak fish. Today they hope for better luck. POLICE COURT NEWS.

ARE WELL DIVIDED.1 I Strong Argument Put up by Those in Favor of the Work? Are Working Hard to Keep Names Off of the Remonstrances Claim Washington Street will be a Big Business Throughfare. There is a movement on toot to quash the efforts of the numeroMs property owners who desire a brick pavement on Washington street. At the oit.y clerk's offioe are two remon strances signed by individuals against the paving of that thoroughfare and a third is being circulated at the present time. Thirteen days of the allotted twenty still remain in which to get the re monstrances in, and, in this matter, time is an extremely important factor. One remonstrance has been received from David Johnson and another from Pierce & Watson, acting as agents for the Chilton estate. A third remon strance is now in the hands of Mr. James Qrowney. While this activity on the part of those opposed to the improvement does not mean that the pavement will not go through, it has p^t those favor ing tlie movement on the alert and every effort is being made to keep people trom signing. Those in favor of the pavement have a good argument to pat op. They realize that Wash ington street is an important thor oughfare and should be improved. Many of the property owners along the street also realize this and some, who have declared themselves against the pavement heretofore, have ex pressed their intention of working for the improvement. People living along the street are tired of seeing wagons sink hub deep in mad and they want as good a street as the prominence of the thoroughfare re quires. With a pavement on Wash ington street, it is argaed, travel would greatly increase, and, when people began passing, stores would locate there and, within a short time, a vast amount of business would be done there which would cause pro perty to increase in value, and those owning residences would find they had business blocks. This argument is laughed at Dy some, but there are many who believe it and are favoring the pavement.

Commodore Evans Calls Special Meeting of Raritan Yacht Club Trustees. > THE PUBLIC WANTS IT. For Various Reasons the Yacht Club has not Previously taken the Matter up this Season ? Once Started, However, it is Quite Possible that a Carnival May be Held. Commodore Evans, of the Raritan Yacht Clnb, has issued an order call ing a special meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Yacht Club for Mon day night to talk over the plans for holding another water carnival. The carnival held last vear was not as great a success as it should have been on account of the rain. The Yacht Club since then, and until the present time, have taken no steps toward holding a carnival this year. Now that a apecial meeting has been called to talk over the plans it will come as a great but delightful surprise to the people of Perth Amboy, nearly all of whom are in favor of it. A number of prominent citizens, when seen by a News reporter this morning and asked what they thought of the idea, they were greatly pleased and said that there is no question of doubt but what it would be a great success, if held. Last year when an appeal was made to the merchants and oitizens they all responded liber ally and the prospects this year are far better than last season. Oommo- ' dore Evans is in favor of it and will I do all in his power to keep the ball a rolling now that it has been started. ORANcrro GOME AGAIN. Another Tuesday Game is Ar ranged for August Nth. Close Game Expected. Orange will play here again accord ing to a statement issued by the Mar ions. It will be another Tnesdav game and will take place on August 11. The fans have been clamoring for another try at Orange since last Tuesday and the game on that day leading them to believe that if the teams came together again the result would be different. There is no mis taking the fact that Orange was very lucky to pull the game out of the fire though outbatted and outfielded by the locals. Those who saw the game declared it beyond doubt the most exoiting contest ever seen on the local grounds this season. A margin of one run separated the two teams at the end of the game, the. score being 3 to 2. The intense rivalry existing between the two teams as well as the prospects for a close and brilliant game will, it is thought, draw a large crowd to the enclosed grounds to witness the next contest. The game will be called at live o clock as before, in order to give everyone an opportunity to see the whole game. F.J.

First-Class Work Guaranteed. ? . The current report that Nathan 'Robinson, Vho was arrested last Sat urday for the second time on a charge of illegal liqnor selling, was being persecuted, is now contradicted by those who were the alleged perse cutors. They claim that the violation of the law at this saloon at Eeasber is so flagrant that no just charge of perse cution can be brought. Speaking with a News reporter tnis morning one of tnose interested said: "When we nave seen little children running in and out of this saloon, can anyone cry 'persecution,' when we arrest the proprietor? We found no difficulty in securing liquor at this place wnile elsewhere we were utter ly unable to do so. At some places even we could not enter. The rumor that we have been persecuting this man Robinson, is entirely false. We have nothing against him of a person al nature. If we failed to do any thing in regard to this matter we would undoubtedly be censured." The first time Robinson was fined $100 by Judge Schenck on a complaint made by Richard Peltier. Last Satur day he was arrested by Constable Robert Gilland on tne complaint of a Cranbury constable, Jacob Gordon. He gave bail Monday for his appear ance before the grand jury.
