FISH NETSjN BAY.
U. S. Army Engineers Hear All Sides
Baltimore, Md., June 7.?With the
view to reconciling the fiBhing intereate
of the CAeaapeake Bay with the navi
gation regulatkona. a hearing waa held
today in the cuatom house before a
board of United Statea engineera. The
hearing waa held especially aa a reault
of aeveral complainta received by the
department that pound neta and other
ttBhing contrivancea interfered with the
navigable watera of the Cheaapeake
Bay and ita tributariea.
Over 200 repreaentativea of the Chea
apeake Bay fishing interesta were pre
sent from all aectiona of the bay from
Havre de Grace to the Virginia Capea.
Othera preaent represented the ateam
boat intereata which it is alleged suf
fered constderable annoyance, owing to
the large number of pound neta in the
lower bay. The diacuaaion led to the
question of the lengthof the pouud neta.
especially in the waters of the lower
bay in the jurisdiction of the State of
Virginia orer that permitted by the
State of Maryland, which prohibita neta
extending 800 yarda frotn the ahore.
While nahermen in theupper part of
the bay claim that not oniy are the
pound neta in Virginia a menace to nav
igation. but that they had praetically
deatroyed the ahad tiahing induatry and
that the edible food fish could no longer
reach the head watera of the Bay to
apawn and that aa a reault it waa only
a queation of but a ahort time when the
tiahing induatry would be a thing of the
The Virginia representativea were ac
companied by atrong legal counsel,
while the Maryland contingent were
headed by the practical fiflhermen'them
aelves and the discuaaion became ani
mated and general. Walter T. Jack
aon, of Havre de Grace, repreaenting
the head of the Bay fiahing induatry,
atated that unleaa the Govemment took
aome action regulating the aize of the
pound neta that it waa only a queation
of a ahort time when the ahad fiahing
would be deatroyed altogether. The
long pound neta permitted to be uaed in
the waters of the State of Virginia,
which in many inutances were milea in
l-ngth. he aaid practically prevented the
fiah from reaching the head' waters of
the Bay, where they apawned each
year, leaaening the aupply: eventually
deatroying an induatry of great value
to the State and depriving thouaanda of
riahermen of a livelihood.
Mr. Jackaon atated that thirty yeara
ago the head of the Cheaapeake Bay
waa the principal aource of aupply to
the city of Baltimore and that it waa
no uocoromon thing to have a catch of
from 20.000 to40,000ahada day, but that
the catch during the entire aeason just
closed haa not beeti over 75,000. Out
aide of the interferance that the polea
and atakea might cauae to navigation in
the lower bay in order to preaerve thia
valuable induatry to theState of Mary

Othere who took part at the hearing
were Congreaaman Wtlliam A. Jonea,
of Virgfnia. Mr. Seara, of Mathewa
county, Va.; Wiiliam E. Lawaon, of
Hampton. Va.; repreaenting the Vir
ginia Fiaberiea Commiaalon; Capt. G.
E. Coffe, of Norfolk. repreaenting the
Old Dominion Steamahip Company, and
Mr. Saundera, of Virginia.
Colonel Caaey adjourned the meeting
with the announcement that a tripdown
the bay would be made by the board,
looking over the aituation from the
atandpoint of the neta interfering with
the navtgation regulationa, and that the
reaqlt of their inveatigation would be
brought before the Piah Commiaaion at
Waahington and that what changea
would be made would be formulated by
COMET FAILEO IN 1664.
It aeema that Pepys, in 1664, was as
much disappointed aa aome of the peo
ple who are complaining today of Hal
ley'B comet, becauae, after all the free
advertiaing it received, it failed to have
a more brilliant iridescent tail of
poiaonous gas. Pepys writes in hfs
diary for December 21, 1664, that he
finally, after much waiting and watch
ing. aaw the comet, "which now
whether worn away or no, I know not,
appears not with a tail, but only is
larger and duller than any other star."

57 MINUTES WASTE OUT OF 60.
"In planning the work fortheday lay
aaide 45 minutes of every hour for in
terruption while doing the 16 minutes'
work.'' This ia the motto that hanga in
every room in a certain Atchinaon home
and it has been found that the 45 min?

enough. The woman who comet to

alone, and agenta aeldom leave without

ahould be reviaed to give an allowance
of 57 minutea out of every 60 for intcr
