MINISTER VERIFIES FISH STORY AND DRAWS MORAL Here is a fish story. Nevertheless, it has sponsors, to wit: The Rev. Fred Clare Baldwin, pastor of the Calvary Methodist Episcopal Church, East Orange, and William Simpson, the sexton. Henry Elliott Rowley, 10 years old,, the son of City Clerk Lincoln E. Row ley, of East Orange, was fishing from a small pier at Lake Hopatcong yes terday afternoon. He had a cheap fishing rod, unpretentious tackle and just a plain ordinary fish hook. For an audience there was Dr. Baldwin and Mr. Simpson. The fish weren't hungry and the audience was getting weary, so Mas ter Rowley decided to start some thing. He caught . a grasshopper, placed It on his hook and made a neat cast. A diminutive sunfish made an ambi tious stab af the bait and seized a leg of the grasshopper. It was busily engaged in swallowing the leg and Henry was wondering whether he was really getting a nibble, when along came a bass. The bass gobbled up the sunflsh and the hook and started for parts un known nearly taking Henry along on the other end of the fishline as bal last. . . With his feet braced, the boy hung on until Dr. Baldwin came to his rescue. Together they pulled in the fish. It measured 16ti inches long and weighed 3Vi pounds and if you don t believe It. ask Dr. Baldwin. "This illustrates a little problem in morality,” said the minister, as he arose from measuring the Ash. The sunflsh represents the little fel'°™ who greedily goes after some ban far too big for him. The bass repre sents the big fellow who comes along and gobbles up the little fellow, bait and all. And the moral—” "And the moral," broke in Henry eagerly, “is—we get the bass!” The Rowleys and their guests. Dr. Baldwin and Mr. Simpson, had for dinner the bass as their piece de re sistance. __ FEE TO BE RAISED Belleville Will Have to Pay $500 Instead of $350.

On the plea that they were ignorant of the contents of the reso lution. and should be furnished, with coiles of It for further investiga tion, COuncllmen Daniels. Bechtoldt and Carragher opposed It.
