WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19, 1903.
While on yonr vacation Don t for
get to have The Evening News mailed
to yon, and in this way keep in touch
with ;your home doings. No extra
oharge for mailing, and address
changed'as often as desired.
The agitation started by the Even
ing News for better streets is bearing
fruit in a most encouraging manner.
Improved thoroughfares have bucn
talked about here for several years
and occasionally a short stretch of
street, such as Jefferson and Center
streetB, have been paved but it was
not until the Evening News, early
last spring, began to picture the dis
graceful conditions ot affairs that the
movement was taken up in earnest.
The News, at that time, made a point
to tell of every wagon its reporters
oould find fast in the mire and des
women were forced to
fh puddles and mud to get
long before the Chambor
e took the matter up. An
mass meeting was held
It was found that the
, sewer in a part of Smith
ated the repaving of that
e so ,the Nows took up
mf with the result that the
Sewer Committee of the
Board of Aldermen has recommended
that one be built. Now a petition
comes for a coating of asphalt on
State street and improvements there.
The Rector street citizens have made
two attempts and will doubtless soon
make a third to have a pavement put
down. Washington street people are
in the midst of the battle for vitri
fied brick, and so the work goes on.
The Evening News does not recall
this past history in a sense of bragg
ing about what it has done. Rather,
the News feels proud of the city and
tho^Avhd tie* working so earnestly
rIhe improvements. The News has
mny done its duty and is glad that
,hers are doing theirs. It is a noble
ork and with hearty co-operation
r-erth Amboy, within a few years
will become the model manufacturing
city in the State.
The public at large will be unable
to understand Alderman Tott’s ex
planation of inaction on the new
bridge approach. He declares that
the Cheesoborough neople are now
having the lines of their property
marked and that the city would wait
until this was finished and that Mr.
Pardee had been seen, but that per
haps the city could get along without
a deal with the latter gentleman.
There may be some reason in all
this and doubtless is, for the aider
men generally act with reason, but
after a certain tract has been given
the city for the expressed purpose
of opening a street and making an
approach to tho bridge and the gift
had been accepted by the city, it is
dillicult to see what stands in the way
of beginning at once to improvo that
street appoach regardless of Mr. Par
dee, the Cheesoborough or any other
person, as long as the property owners
petition for the improvement and
the city has the money in hand to do
the work. Public sentiment, both in
this city and throughout the county,
demands that the work be started, at
the oarliest possible moment.
Alderman Campbell was somewhat
premature in trying to prevent four
proporty owners along Washington
street from withdrawing their names
from the remonstrance against paving
Washington street at the meeting of
the Board of Aldermen Monday
night. As soon as tho request was
read Mr. Campbell raised the point
that the twenty days allowed for peti
tioning and remonstrating had expired.
So it had, but if it is to be considered
that requests are not actually presented
until council meets, then the remon
strance against the paving of Wash
ington street, which has ninety-four
signers, is oven later than the request
to remove the four nameB, because the
remonstrance wras not read in the
meeting until after the request of the
four was disposed of.
On the other hand, if the remon
strance is claimed to be valid because
it was in the hands of the city clerk
before the twenty days expired, then
the time of filing the request to have
four names withdrawn must be taken
when it too was filed with the city
Living, Yet Dead.
In a German law journal may be
. found a curious account of a woman,
■ who, though actually living, is legally
f dead. Some years ago she disappeared
from her home, and after three years
had elapsed the court formally pro
nounced her dead and turned over her
property to her next of kin. Soon aft
erward she returned to her native
place, and as there was no question
as to her identity, she naturally
thought that she would have no diffi
culty in recovering her property. The
court, however, flatly refused to com
ply with her request. "You have been
declared dead," it virtually said, "and
It is impossible for us to regard you
as living.” Thereupon the woman ap
pealed to a higher court, but her labor
was in vain, for the verdict of the
lower court was upheld and, more
over, an official notice was issued to ]
the effect that the plaintiff, having for
mally been declared dead, could not |
Dow be restored to life, as the law un
derstands that word, and must remain
dead until doomsday.—N. Y. Herald.

BASS THAT WON’T STRIKE.
Peculiarity of the Pink-Eye*. Bro»if«
Beauties of Boot Bake,
The small-mouthed or pink-eyed bass
is supposed to be as game as any fish,
and generaly it is. Commonly it strikes
savagely at spoon or live bait, rushing at
the lure from 20 feet away and fighting
from the moment of impact until it is
hauled in conquered.
There are exceptions, however, and
one of them is furnished by Boot lake,
a beautiful body of water in the south
western part of Vilas county, Wisconsin,
says the New York Sun. It would be
hard to say how many anglers have gone
to Boot lake and fished it according to
approved methods and come away dis
appointed, though they were assured
that its waters contained many fish and
knew afterw'ard from its appearance
that this must have been so.
The small-mouthed bass of Boot lake
are the real thing, beautifully modelled,
beautifully bronzed, of large size and
fierce. They do not differ in looks or
voracity from the small-mouths of
streams which are famous for the sport
they afford. But they will not hit or
strike at anything.
In fishing for pink-eyed bass common
ly it is sufficient to make a good cast in
favorable water with frog, minnow or
spoon and reel in slowly or swiftly,
trusting the fish to strike at the bait as
it comes through the water. It is an
axiom that a bass can see a moving lure
through 20 feet of clear water and will
strike at it from that distance*!? hungry
Upon any bait cast and reeled tnrougn
the water of Boot lake the pink-eyed
bass looks with indifference. There is
one way to get them and but one.
The boat must be rowed with much
slowness some 50 feet out from the hank.
The angler sits in the stern and plays
out 30 feet of line. There must be enough
lead on'the line to sink minnow or frog
to depth of eight feet.
With the boat moving slowly and
dragging the lure the pink-eyes will bite.
This is really trolling at about one-tenth
of the usual trolling speed.
Even so, the fish bite, but do not
strike. There is nothing of the usual
impetuous rush and whirring of the reel
as the silk is snatched out.
Instead, pink-eyes, game as pebbles,
muscular and fast, weighing from two
to five pounds, and with the blood of
generations of fighters in them, ap
proach the slowly moving bait cautious
ly, swim in its wake and then nibble at
It much as If they were perch. Time
must be given to them in which to de
cide that they like it and time to take it
fairly within their mouths.
A Boot lake black bass after a trolled
frog will consume five minutes in mak
ing up its mind to grasp the morsel as
far up as the hook. First it inspects the
frog and bites the tip of its hind legs
gently. Then it takes the frog in its
mouth as far up at the juncture of the
hind legs with the body.
Then it takes out ten feet of line let
surely; then it ejects the frog for a mo
ment and instantly seizes it again, tak
ing it in this time headforemost. Then
the angler may give the wrist-jerk that
sinks in the barb.
Once this is done there is no difference
between the behavior of a Boot lake
pink-eye and any other pink-eye. It will
fight as swiftly and savagely and long,
come ou1 of the water as often, be as
much trouble to capture and aff ord as
much pleasure in the combat.
There are many bass in Boot lake, and
on certain summer days the number a
man may catch is unlimited, provided he
knows how. He will need a guide or
friend to row the boat, which must not
travel faster than a mile an hour. The
minnow or frog must be suffered to sink
deep, and the fisherman must have pa
tience to wait until the nibbler has taken
the bait fairly.
THE NEED OF COURTESY.
An Important Fact tor tlio People ol
America to Take Into
There is one thing Americans should
learn, if they are to continue to be i
colonial power, and that is courtesy tc
people with dark skins, says the Bostoi
Transcript. There are plenty of people
under our jurisdiction now who art
dark-skinned, and some “as black as tht
ace of spades.” If we hold our posses
RIUUO Uiciv *» i . I wui- ' w 1 uutui j
black magistrates, black judges, blact
men of the colonial and civil services
If they are to be denied hotel accommo
dations because of the color of theii
skins, as the chief justice of Liberia hai
been denied them in New York, the;
will go back home in a mood eminent!;
favorable to sedition. The unfortu
nate Liberian, though a sick man, hai
been refused accommodations every
where, and has passed most of his timi
in a cab searching for lodgings. Ii
Paris he would have found no troubh
in securing comfortable lodgings; h<
would have been invited to the dis
tinguished visitor's seat beside a Frencl
judge; and, his identity being known
j sentries would present arms to him
France has many colored colonial sub
j jects, and spares nothing to hold thei
I good will. To do the French justice
, their courtesy to colored people spring
| from a nobler motive than expediency
Tell a Frenchman about colorphobia ii
the United States, and he shrugs hi
shoulders and says: “With tis it i
the man, not the skin.” London is no
so liberal, but on the other hand, off!
cial position commands respectful treat
pent without regard to color.

Disappointing the Dug. i
A letter carrier with a route in the
eastern part of the city has been hav
ing trouble with a dog belonging to a
citizen, and the other day, as he had a
letter to deliver, he stopped at the gate
and said to a man who sat smoking on
“If you want this letter you must
come out here for it.”
“Vhat vhas der matter?” was asked.
■ "I don’t want to be bitten by your

“I certainly am.”
“Vhell, I come down.”
He sauntered down to the gate and
received and opened his letter, and a
minute later he called out to the de

you make a fool of me! Dis vhas only

An Ancient Canal.
Between Bagdad and the Persian gulf,
about 500 miles along the Tigris, is a
desert in which Sir William Willcocks
finds the same engineering opportunities
that are being improved in Egypt. As
late as 970, A. D., this land of Chaldea
was made one of the most fertile and
prosperous centers of agriculture,
through a great irrigation system, with
a main canal 250 miles long and an im
mense number of subsidiary canals. For
the first ten miles the great canal, with
a width of 65 feet, was cut through hard
conglomerate rock, to a depth of 50 feet.
With neglect of the works, the main
stream of the Tigris became diverted,
the old bed of the river Bilted up, the ir
rigation system fell into ruins, and only
mounds on the barren plain mark the
sites of the ancient villages. To reclaim
nearly 3,000,000 acres by a new irrigation
system is Sir William’s hope.—London
The Smithsonian institution has
published a new edition of Dr. Lang
ley’s “Experiments in Aerodynamics,”
tirst primed n years ago. in summing
up Dr. Langley speaks of the pros
pects for the future somewhat as fol
lows: “Since that time, he says, he
has demonstrated that mechanical
flight, is possible by actually perform
ing it with steel flying machines near
ly 1,000 times heavier than air, driven
by steam. These machines weighed
from 30 to 40 pounds, and flew from
one-half to three-quarters of a mile at
speeds varying from 20 to 30 miles an
hour. It is believed by Dr. Langley
that the time is now very near when
human beings will be transported at
high velocities, though perhaps at first
under exceptional conditions, such as
are demanded in the arts of war rather
than of peace.—N. Y. Sun.
Factory for Making: Mummies.
The recent discovery by the French
police of a mummy factory at Mont
rouge, near Paris, has caused no little
consternation among owners of these
somewhat grewsome curiosities. It is
said to be well-nigh impossible to dis
tinguish the products of the factory
from the genuine article, and hundreds
of public institutions and thousands of
private collectors and dealers are be
lieved to have been victimized. First a
skeleton is procured, and, after being
immersed for a short period in sulphate
of ammonia, is swathed in a prepara
tion of burgundy pitch and resin, with
dry spices and dust. The parcel is then
sent to Egypt to be “naturalized” and
“authenticated,” and, after an interval,
is returned in a “sarcophagus,” which,
though covered with archaic hierogly
phics, is also bogus.—Stray Stories.
Buenos Ayres' Great Docks.
The first thing that strikes you on
landing at Buenos Aires is its docks,
which extend for five miles along the
river-front. They were built by an Eng
lish firm, and were completed in 1897.
They are most solidly constructed, sup
plied with numerous modern steam
cranes, and are brilliantly lighted with
electricity at night. They cost the city
and nation £7,000,000 sterling, or $35,
000,000. So great is the amount of ship
ping, however, that not the docks
alone, but the small river Riachuelo, is
crowded with vessels. Indeed, one
wonders how a ship, once entered, can
ever manage to get out.—St. Nicholas.
