He Took His Wife Along in Rowboat and Fishermen Were Fooled

John P. BERL, a special fish and game protector for Monroe county, captured
three illegal fishermen at Long Pond on Friday. The men were using a gill net
about 400 feet long and were caught at it by the protector. The men arrested
are Jacob DOHR, Harry SUELL and James RANDALL, who live in the town of Greece.
Protector BERL had been after the men for a long time, but was unable
to get near enough to them to catch them in the act. On Friday he took his
wife out with him in a rowboat. The fishermen thought the man and woman were out
for a pleasure row.
DOHR aimed a blow at the protector, but a revolver pointed in his
direction brought him to time. The men will be tried before Justice of the Peace
COLBY in Spencerport to-morrow.

The formal opening of the Rochester Orphan Asylum, Monroe avenue, has been
postponed until September. There are now twenty-three children in the Eastman

able to see the Pickwick trial, recently presented in the Masonic Temple.
