TRIO OF TALL FISH STORIES
niggest one I'.acaped.
Tho steamlHiat Angler, which makes dally
trips to the fishing banks, brought fro
more or less excited fishermen up to the
Battery landing yesterday afternoon, re
ports tho New York Times The cause of
the excitement was a whale, which passed
so closrt to tho Angler that Captain Al
Foster thought at first there would be a
The Angler was sltout ten miles off Ixing
Beach, with several hundred lines hanging
overboard, when Ball Jones, a sailor,
shouted: "Hey, Cap, there's a wh.ilo dead
The sailor's shout brought everybody
scurrying forward to seo what was the
matter. What they saw, according to the
best Information obtainable, was between
sixty and seventy-five feet of a whale's
back. The levlthlnn was moving slowly
and was about 2o0 feet ahead of the
steamer. It looked as If the Angler would
surely collide with the monster, but Cap
tain Foster Is a man of wits, and In less
than thirty seconds after he received the
news from Jones ho had signaled full speed
astern, and the Angler's side wheels
were churning backward. The vessel was
within twenty-five feet of the whale before
It came to a stop.
When the boat reached the Battery the
fishermen hurried ashore nnd started In to
tell everybody they met what a big whalo
was loose down the const.
"We were oft Iong Beach and about
twelve miles out when o sighted him,"
said Captain Foster. "He was steering
duo west, heading direct for the shore,
and unless he woke up soon after we
passed him there Is tho biggest whale I
ever saw floundering In the shallow waters
off Long Beach this very minute.
'I calculated him to bo about sixty feet
long," continued tho skiner, "but there
were people on board who would go on
the stand swear he was twice and even
three times that long. Ho had a white
stripe on his back."
Hot Ran with a Sklllagnlee.
Eighteen feet from the tip of his snout
to the tail, the largest fish that was ever
brought Into T wharf, Boston, came In
on tho Ida Sllva, a swordflsherman, hav
ing been captured after a fight only
equalled by John Boyle O'Reilly's "fight
with the amber whale." For twelve miles,
reports the Boston Journal, the monster
towed a dory containing Everett Dowdy
and Daniel McDonald, who had harpooned
It, thinking It was a swordflsh. A score
of times it turned and attacked the boat,
a hundred times It Bought tho bottom, en
deavoring to pull tho frail dory down after
It, and only being prevented by the length
of the harpoon rope.
Tho fish was styled a skillagalee or largo
blllflsh by the authorities on T wharf, but
never before was one of that species
known to grow to half Its size.
All day the animal was on exhibition at
the store of thesGloucester Fish company
on Atlantic avenue, and a wondering crowd
marveled at Its proportions. Its tall meas
ured six feet w hen extended, its side fin was
two feet long and Its huge dorsal was
nearly four feet. It had a sharp nose, about
two feet long, as hard as a Roman sword,
and Its head was larger than a swordflsh.
Daniel McDonald told a Journal man the
story of the capture. "A week ago," he
said, "In a dead calm Dowdy and I put off
In a dory. Wo had rowed but a short dis
tance from the ship when we saw this fish
rising and ns he reached the surface I put
a harpoon Into him. Then I saw that he
was like no swordflsh that ever lived. He
tore around In tho water, creating enor
mous waves, and then dashed at the boat.
He hit It a number of times with his body,
but his sword was so short In proportion
that he was unable to use It.
"Then he started to run away. The line
drew taught, and we tore through the
water like a torpedo boat. Twenty knots
we did If we did one, nnd dories arn't made
to stand a strain like that.
"After a whllo It tried to ease up, but
each time wo pulled taut on the rope. This
finally tired him out. He was bleeding all
the time and at last, five hours after we
harpooned him, he turned over. Then we
started to pull back to the ship. It was
fully ten miles away, and the monster.
which weighed 1.400 pounds, was not easy
to move, even In the water. We finally got
back, completely tired out. It was a great
Harpoons a Shark.
While fishing for bass within a short dis
tance of President Roosevelt's private land
ing In Oyster Bay on the 80th, Dr. James 8.
Hall of Oyster Bay saw protruding from
the water the fin of a shark. The doctor
and Howard Leloh of Oyster Bay, who was
with him on his fishing trip, Immediately
put oft from his launch In a rowboat to the
shore, where they procured a harpoon.
Upon their return to tho launch they found
the shark still sunning Itself In the warm
sunshine In the water near the bathing
beach. They attached a long line to the
harpoon and rowed very quietly toward the
dangerous fish. It lav motionless until the
rowboat was almost directly over It. Dr.
Hall, who is one of the most powerful men
In the New York Athletic club, stood In
the bow with the harpoon poised In tho air.
As the shark started rapidly away the doc
tor plunged the harpoon with the full force
of his great strength Into tho water and
caught the monster Just behind the head.
In its frantic effort to get away It towed
the rowboat for some distance, leaving be-
nino a trail or blood. Lashing the sea It
was dragged by the doctor and Mr. Ielch
to the beach, where It was found to be a
shark of dangerous variety and to measure
about eight feet In length. It was the
largest shark ever killed In the vicinity of
Oyster Bay. While returning to the launch
the doctor saw and harpooned another
shark which was not full grown.

It Is thought that the end nf tho sugar
rate war is in sight, At a conference held
In Chicago a week ago the gulf lines agreed
to accept a reduction of 4 cents In their
differential rate. The rate adopted nfte
the previous rate war was 15 cents lower
from New Orleans to Missouri river point!
than from New York to Missouri river
points. The eastern trunk lines claimed
the differential of 15 cents was excessive
and asked Its reduction to 10 cents. Pome
western lines which do not reach gulf
ports, being heavy losers by the war, pro
posed to the gulf lines the 10-cent differ
ential. Finally the gulf lines offered to
compromise on 11 cents. This proposition
Is to bo considered at a meeting of the
eastern roads In New York. Local Jobbers

Is that the grocers have bnd difficulty In

Cheese prices have advnnced rapidly In

All Indications point to yet higher prices, as
the demand for the last month has been
