One strange feature of this sea life of the tropics is the regular recurrence of migratory swamis of fish of very small size that return in huge num bers year after year with such abso lute regularity that the natives calcu late on the event on a certain date in each year, and even within an hour or two of the day. One such swarm of fish foria.’ the occasion of an annual holiday and feast at Samoa. The fish is not unlike the white-bait for which the English Thames has so long been celebrated, and each-year it arrives in Samoa on the same day in the month of October, remains for a day, or at the most two days, an l then disap pears entirely untP the same day the following year. Why it comes or whence no curious naturalist has yet discovered, nor has anybody traced its onward course when it leaves the Sa moan group; but the fact is unques tionable that suddenly, without notice, the still waters of the lagoon which surround each island within the fring ing reef become alive with millions of fishes, passing through them for a single day and night and then disap pearing for a year as though mey had never come. A visit to Samoa enabled me to see this strange phenomenon for myself, and to witness the native feast by which it is celebrated year by year. I had been in Samoa for a month, and in that month I had enjoyed almost a surfeit of beauty. I had coasted the shores of its islands in native canoes; I had bathed in the warm, still wa ters of its lagoons, fringed to seaward by the white reef, on which the ocean broke in golden spray, and to land ward by the silver beach of coral sand, flecked with the tremulous shadows of the swaying palms. I had climbed with my native wide the abrupt hills, covered with dense forests of tropical luxuriance, through the arcades of which I caught glimpses of the flash and luster of the ocean’s myriad smiles, and again we had plunged into deep valleys among the hills, where lj£tle neadlong streams murmur under the shaoe of the wide-spreading bread fruit trees and wave the broad leaves of the great water lilies of the Pacific islands.—Lippincott’s.

New York, Sept. 23. —it Friday’s meeting of the plan and scope commit tee of the Dewey celebration committee General Roe made a statement regard ing the declination of the Grand Army of the Republic to take cart in th£ Ad miral Dewey land parade. >rfe said: “At the request of a prominent Grand Army man I asked O. How ard to take command of tMs body, be ing assured this was agreeable to the state commander. At this interview, afor some discussion, I informed them that the Grand Army would be as signed a position in the lead of the un armed organizations. At a later inter view between the commander-in-chief of the G. A. R., state commander, Col. Goulden and myself, practically a de mand was made that the Grand Army should head the column. Col. Goulden stating that since the meeting of the day before it was found that it was the sentiment of the Grand Army that if it could not lead it would not parade.

Roe, embodies the views I personally and strongly pressed upon him, which said the proper place for the comrades was at the head of •the line in question. I made this re quest, following the precedents of two states. First in Chicago, at the jubilee parade the veterans were accorded the fight of the line and marched ahead of all armed troops; second, on the return of the IC'th regiment of Pennsylvania volunteers from the Philippines the Grand Army had the right of the line” - in Pittsburg and was followed by the president and governor and their staffs. I felt wiien I made the pica that prec edent se*t by the state of Pennsylvania in having the veterans lead the line. President McKinley and the governor of the state following, was one that might be followed by those controlling the Dewey parade in New York.” Maj.-Gen. Roe early Friday received a telegram from Gov. Roosevelt direct ing him to give the G. A. R. their choice of any place in the parade. Im mediately on receiving the telegram, Gen. Roe had a conference witli Mayor Van Wyck and then with Chairman Guggenheimer. Mr. Guggenheirqjßr said of the governor’s action: “It is peculiarly Rooseveltian. It is most impudent, unjustified and unwarranted interference in a that is without his province.” The plan and scop® committee met later and took the, ac tion stated above. Roosevdlt Explains.

Roe that if the pat ter is one purely for the city authori ties and in which I have hot power, then of course I wlth>& draw my former telegram. '• t'< had understood that General Roe was acting as major general of the national guard in the management of the pa rade. and in that event I of course hkd the power to direct that the veteransV be given the right of the line and ac* cordingly did it.
