The pier in its present dis ,want!ed condition is hard'y safe for single pedestrians, but if crowded with people, pushing and struggling to see hlat is going on, it will be I.ke the bridge in the "Vision of Miz,." To prevent thie possibility of catastrophe; Uou'd not tl.e ceremony be pPrformFd on terra firms, tihe monkey being dropped by thepressingeof an electriebut ton, or, if that method be too advanced for us, then by the pulline of a strineg?
