Mii.lvii.i.E, N. J., April 4.—Nearly
600 trumps, who are unable to obtain
work on the oyster bouts, have taken
possession of the town-, of bivalve and
I'ort Norris. The township authorities
are unable to cope with them, and it
may become necessary to call upon
the sheriff of Cumborlun<l county to
drive them away. The men were
brought here to find employment
during* the oyster planting season,
which has just opene i and which will
continue until June. They arc made
desperate by hunger and are so bold
that they enter houses in daylight and
rob them of all the food they ean find.
The wives and daughters of the oyster
men, all of whom are away at work in
the day time, are openly insulted on
the streets and in their homes.
Trouble is feared between the oyster
men and the owners of riparian
grounds. If the see.lers there give out
in their native beds, many of the 1,000
boats at work declare they will dredge
on riparian grounds. That means the
firing of the shore batteries, which are
ready for effective work. At the
headquarters of the riparian owners
the preparations for the expected ad-
vent of the oyster pirates are decidedly
warlike. Oliver Dandy and Frank
Cobb patrol the beach with two squads
of riflemen, keeping a sharp watch on
the myriads of boats in the bay. "We
will give the thieve-- a hot reception if
they come on our grounds," said Gau-
dy, "and will blow them out of the
