$ Head of Playgrounds Will Ap peal to Mayor Hauss ling. ' When Mayor Haussllng returns to the city Monday he will bo asked to meet the playground commissioners in conference in regard to the cut in the playground budget. He will be ' met by Commissioner Algernon T. Sweeney, president of the board, who will call the mayor's attention to the urgent needs at the playgrounds and ?. public baths, showing that It will be impossible to carry on the work prop erly with the budget cut 60 per cent. Discussing the matter of budgets. Playground Commissioner Bernard M. Shanley, .ir., sized up the situation In the following query: "if the Shade • Tree Commission Is entitled to. spend *54,000 for the trees of Newark, how " much is the Playground Commission entitled to spend for the children of Newark?" r The budget of the commission for the playgrounds was cut from $60,200 to $32,000 and the budget for the maintenance of the baths, to be open all the year around, was cut from $62,250 to $16,000. <, In discussing the situalion created by the action of the finance commit teo the commissioners concluded that they would do the best they can under the circumstances. On the playgrounds all further extension work will have to be stopped. The situation regarding the bath houses is considered quite hopeless by , the commissioners, as the proper maintenance entails such an expense that with the scant allowance they will hardly be able, it was stated, tc run them more than a few months. Beyond the readiness of the commis sioners to do all they can, as It was expressed, they feel that It will be up to the public whether they are satisfied to have the necessary exten sion work stifled or not. The commissioners passed a motion authorizing the expenditure of $2,500 for additional equipment to the vari ous playgrounds In the city. The practicability of abandoning the Elm Street Playground and do nating the Newton street grounds to the city for a baby hospital was dis cussed, but no action taken. On suggestion of Secretary J. Leon ard Mason, the commissioners de cided to uniform all the playground employees. At the request of the Board of Works the city bathhouses will be equipped with water meters.

MARION. Ind., July 12.—Multitudes are feasting on drunken fish hauled in by the bushel basketful here after 1,916 barrels of beer were turned into the Mississinewa river from the In diana brewery under direction of a United States revenue officer. Thi rl ver Mississinewa Is the Indian equivalent for "sparkling water." It j became indeed sparkling water after the tieer was poured In. A stream of pure champagne couldn't have caused more of a jamboree, and people who looked down from the bridges laughed and shrieked like a crowd of roister ers in a grill room on New Year’s eve. Some said afterward they had ex perienced a feeling akin to dizziness as they looked over the railings of the bridges and were moved to mirth by the antics of the fish. Many thought they really had gone through a sort of sympathetic mental spree. There came down the river thou sands of fish disporting themselves in an extremely unflshlike way, leaping all munner of new fangled somer saults and Hopping against each other in frenzied bunches. Carps, catfish, suckers and occasionally a bass cut crazy capers in seeniing glee as they coursed the current. An army of small boys ascmbled on an island Just below one of the bridges where fish with “wet noses" were trying to get over a riffle. Equipped with ball bats, clubs, boat oars and other weapons, the boys, and men, too, for that matter, waded Into the shallow water and waylaid their easy quarry. Many caught fish In their hands and everyone who wished carried home a string or basketful. Thousands of pounds were taken, out of the river. Some men got away with 100 pounds each. .Some folks experimented by putting drunken fish in fresh water. Soon after this was done the victims re covered from their Jags and seemed Just like normal fish. Only a part of the fish were in an .extreme state of intoxication. A few, however, died from the effects of their innocent carousal, but many others were killed by boys who left them in the river. This, it is feared, will create a stench along the stream. Regular fish were not alone in the limelight. Countless crawfish crawled up on the piers of the bridges and it would have been possible for them to have been scooped up by the bar relful. There was an unusually startled expression in the ''crawdad's” eyes. JOY-RIDERS BELIEVED TO HAVE SPIRITED HER AWAY MIDDLETOWN, N. Y„ July 12.— The anarch for Beulah Reeve, who dropped out of sight on the outsk^jts of Goshen Monday evening last has proved fruitless.

MILITARY PARK HOTEL TO BE READY NEXT MAY The construction work on the new' hotel building Military Plaza to be erected at 48-50 Park place is now progressing rapidly and the promoters have been assured that the building will be ready for occupancy by May 1, 1914. Work on the new' hotel has been greatly delayed since May 2 by labor troubles, the day following the one on which operations were started for razing the building which formerly occupied the site oi the new hotel. Ground for the building was broken during the middle of June, and had it not been for the various strikes the foundation by this time would have been completed, according to Waldo C. Oenung, one of the three owners. The approved and altered plans of the new hotel building were filed with the building department on Thursday and everything is now in readiness to rush the structure to completion as soon as possible. According to the latest approved plans the building will be twelve stories in height and will cost $550, 000. It will be constructed along the most modern lines laid down for hotel buildings, and will surpass any thing ever before attempted in the hostelry line in this city. The rear of the building will be so constructed that additions may be added at any time and the founda tion is being laid for a ttventy-story structure, which will permit of the addition of several stories should this be found necessary. Associated with Mr. Genung in pro moting the hotel scheme are Herman Schneider, a building contractor, and Attorney John Montelth, all of New ark.
