IIIS LOOKING FOR lIME Lewis Pinkney Runs Amuck And Is Finally Landed By Con stable Small. There was an exciting time ou West street last night. Lewis Pinkney, col ored, was looking for trouble and he got all that was coming to him. Pink ney went on the warpath early in the evening, starting out on Washington street, wtiere tie slapped a colored woman in the face. Pinkney meandered along until lie lau led on West street and here the bright lights and appeared to dazzle the man, who was looking for trouble and he began to use words not found in the Sunday-school book. His lan guage was more expressive than ele gant and was heard by passers-by. Constable James T. Small, who was in the vicinity, went to Pinkney and warned him uot to use such language on the pntilic streets. He did not heed the warning and repeated the offence. Constable Small again reprimanded the colored man and told him he did not cease his offensive language he, the countable, would have to arrest him. The offender became defiant and dared the Coutasble to arrest him,say ing lie nor no other man coold do snch a thing. Constable Small was about to take Pinkney into custody when the latter made a dash for John Martin’s saloon on West street, but was pursued by the Countable, who grabbed him, when the colored man struck the offi cer of the law.

The fish was found to measure 15 feet from the end of its tail to its mouth. It will be remembered that Shad Liuk was the young man who aided the excursion ists on the steamer Severn last week in reaching home. He took the wheel apart and loosened the block of wood that had arrested its motion. Not Hopeful.

The hundreds of persons who make their living out of the waters of the Chesa peake bay aud its tributaries are now busily engaged in making prepara tions for the opening of tho oyster season. The touging season in the upper bay aud its tributaries will open Thurs day, September 1, the first day in the “K” months, but the season iu the waters of Somerset county aud in the Potomac river does not open until Oc tober 13 and the dredging season be gins on November 1. Most oystermeu are disposed to take rather an optimis tic view of the outlook, and the re ports from down the hay indicate that the growth of young oysters is large ou many of the best beds. In some sections the oysters are said to be cov ered with mussels, as is found to he the case with some oysters off liack ett’s Point, but it is not believed that any serious damage will result from this cause. There are a numl>er of oystermeu, however, who look upou conditions as anything hut favorable aud who say that unless something is done the oys ter industry iu Maryland is doomed. An early fall will-mean that the oys ter season will start in briskly aud that business will be good from the start, bnt if the weather remains warm daring September tho real open ing of the season will likely be post poned for two weeks anyhow. The heavy ice iu the bay last winter, it is declared, did not do the oyster crop for this year any good, and the pillag ing of the beds by the dredgers of shells as w r ell as the oysters lias been injurious.
