Chairman Blcknell Introduced Rev.
John Hutchison of Newark who
made a pronounced hit with his neces
sarily brief remarks. Mr. Hutchi
son has an excellent speaking voice
and was distinctly heard to the limit
of the assembly. In part his remarks
were as follow* •
"Mr. Bicknell, Ladles an«l Gentle
'The committee on Field Day direct
ed me to find a very modest man to
make this speech: after careful search
I found that all others were too mod
est to speak so that my own voice
must afflict your ears.
"First of all let me assure you that
I will speak briefly (loud cheers).
"A man. booked for a speech, asked
his friend for advice as follows: "I
have to make a speech, what shall I
talk about?" -Well." was the reply,
"If you want to make a hit. talk about
a minute." I ought to make at least
the tenth part of a hit.
"We raise the Stars and Stripes to
day over the spot which was the cen
ter. four years ago. of our first Gym
khana or Field Day. The flag sym
bolizes for us three things certified
to us In an Immortal document (be
fore ever Old Glory was our national
emblem) as our "inalienable rights."
namely, "life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness." These we have come
here to seek.''
"Life we want, more life and fuller.
Not the life strenuous but the simple
life. We found it here on this Island
—fairer far than the Pearl of the
Antilles—here on Gt. Chebeague, the
Pearl of Casco Bay. This life the
folk that were 'To this manor born"
had learned, and we would learn from
them their wiser way. a life both
strenuous and simple, mixed In Just
proportions. Here are the Hamlltons,
a sturdy race, with a few Hills
amongst them and an occasional
Soule. Doughty men are here and If
you doubt that, they can Curlt. I call
for three cheers for our friends and
hosts, just named, may their tribe In
crease. (Cheers). Many of us have
come from far to And here liberty, a
liberty that has no license. Liberty
from the strain and stress of the office
and the shop, the rostrum and the ex
change; liberty from the monotonous
grind of the household cares, the so
cial whirl, and the city's roar. Lib
erty too from ills that oft afflict. For
Instance there never has been a sa
loon here and hence none of Its dread
effects, though there may be here and
there a bottle of doubtful reputation.
We hare a bar here though, one of the
biggest In all the bay, there It is at old
Division Point, Great Chebeague Bar.
The only liquor that flows over It is
the great unsalted sea.
(At this point an auditor recently
married who was Interjecting witti
cisms, was silenced by the speaker
who announced that Mr. P. would later
sing the pathetic ballad "I'm Married
"We came here In the pursuit of
happiness. From observations made
at the foot of Sunset Road, on the bay
front hereafter to be known as Par
sons' Hluff. this happiness so clesely
pursued often wears skirts and has Its
hair marcelled. We Judge this from
the soulful looks In gleaming eyes

Clarence H. Lant, chairman of the
fireworks committee and Warren

Rockets of every description, togeth

bombs and several set pteoee were
set of and the whole exhibition
was the finest display ever given la
this bay. The bombs and large rock

was long after 10 p. m. before the
last set piece was set off and until

The smiling skies of Sunday and
Monday were repeated Tuesday. As
early as possible the water sports
were started by the committee at the
bathing beach in front of the Hamil
ton. There were seven events, of
which the under water swim, a new
one this year drew the greatest at
tention. This was won by Capt.
John W. Hoben of Springfield. Mass.,
wltb a clever swim of 75 feet. The
tide was falling and several contes
tants met obstacles such as seaweed
and buoy or anchor ropes under wa
ter. but Capt. Hoben picked his way
and cleaned up the field easily.

the committee to the house or hotel
winning the most points, was won by
the Bellevue. The hotel or house
winning the cup has the privilege of
holding it until they are defeated in
any following year. When won for
three seasons consecutive or not, the
house doing so is to be the possessor
of the cup. The cup was won last
year by the Hill Crest with fifty
points. The apparent discrepancy
between the number of points of the

given 5 points, seconds 3, thirds 1.
