For the first time since the sharp
rallies on the morning of June 7 the
majority of issues In the early trad

the highest figures reached at that

incentie for buying in the more
prominent railroad issues.

its strong tone all through the first

QUO WARRANTO ACTION
TO OUST BEEF TRUST
(Special from United Press.)
Jefferson City. Mo., Jun 20. Quo

the "Beef Trust'" from the state of
Missouri were filed with the state
supreme court today by Attorney

I Catholic church to the nation. He
idld not hesitate to flay men of great
wealth whose riches, gathered from the
Bufferings and oppression of the toil
ers, are distributed with lavish hand
for the endowment of libraries and uni
versities. Though the occasion was
such that applause was considered ill
timed, the gathering was so swayed
by his eloquence that a burst of hand
clapping could not be restrained when
he concluded his sermon.
Rockefeller and Carnegie were not
spared. Political grafters came in for
their share. Drawing a powerful pic
ture of the toilers sweltering in the
heat of the Pittsburg furnaces, and of
the laborers in the oil refineries at
Bayonne, the preacher declared that
long ere this the streets would have
welled with human blood but for the
restraining and corrective influences of
the Catholic church.
The laying of the cornerstone was
one of the most notable events in the
history of the Catholic church of Con
necticut. Marking as it does the final
stage in nearly a quarter of century
of struggle of whet was once but a
handful of poor Catholic families to
build a suitable edifice for the wor

attracted Catholics from all parishes
of the city, and hundreds of other re

intense interest the solemn and impres

Many Public Hearings
Before Common Council
The committee on streets will re
port to the common .council tonight a
resolution favoring a hearing on the
widening of Congress street from Main
street easterly to the bridge. Most
of the evening will be consumed by
public hearings upon various matters.
Hawthorne street residents it is said
will oppose the proposed change of
grade on that street, which some of
their neighbors favor. Hearings will
be held on establishment of grade in
Beardsley Park Terrace and Edna

Brady to extend over the building
line on the South side of Grand street

Joy Supplants Despair When

That the Boys Are Safe
Joy was brought today to the homes

been taken in charge by the authori

But is Willing to Entirely Sub
ordinate His Own Interests
to Those of City.
One property owner who has large
interests at stake in the matter of
the widening of Congress street and
who has not entered the controversy
insofar as to suggest which side of
the street he preferred widening is
S. Z. Poli, the theatrical magnate.
It will be remembered that Attor
ney John J. Cullinan, local legal ad
viser, when questioned regarding Mr.
Poli's attitude intimated that Mr.
Poli was indifferent
Mr. Poli was in Bridgeport, Sun
day with his family for a short time
and in conversation with his local
manager, Lewis D. Garvey, author
ized Mr. Garvey to make public his
views on the matter, if the newspa
pers desired it. Mr. Garvey said to
day: "Mr. Poli is deeply interested
in the matter of the Congress street
widening, but has followed his usual
course in always subserving the in
terests of the eity to his private in
terests. He Is in favor of whatever
will best servo the interest of the
city while believing, in his personal
judgment, that the south side of the
street is the. natural side for the wid
ening if the purpose of the widening
in the first analysis is to make a
more attractive approach to the
bridge and to keep the building lines
"When the layout was being made
Mr. Poli had acquired barely enough
property on that side of the street
to build his new theater and if the
widening of the street on the south
side at that time was carried out it
would entail a financial loss that
could hardly be compensated to him.
Sensing a controversy he purchased
at a price greater than he wished to
pay more property to protect himself
so that" at the present time he could
waive twelve feet and still be en
abled to build his theater but with
many alterations. In any event Mr.
Poli is for the city of Bridgeport and
its interests, his own interests being
placed by him secondary."

AIR IS WHITEHEAD'S CREATION
Holland Heights Engine Builder with Millions at His
Command, Is Perfecting Brand New Type of Craft
Picture a bumble bee magnified
hundreds of times, capable of lifting
much weight; stretch your imagina

large creatures combining their
strength to lift a big steel and alumi
num ribbed frame from the ground,
and then imagine 60 more, trained

idea of the unique flying machine
that is now being completed at a
cost of thousands of dollars in the
machine shop of Gustave Whitehead
in Holland Heights.
Nearer than ever before appears
the realization of the dream of White

the best part of whose life had been

that the aeroplane is an impractical

TRANSFER OF COONEY'S
LICENSE TO SELL LIQUOR
Manufacturing interests on the East
Side, along the upper end of Connec
tcut avenue, are much opposed to the
transfer of the liquor license of Daniel
Cooney from 247 Hallam street to the
corner of Bishop and Connecticut ave
nues. They voiced their sentiments at
a hearing before the County Commis
sioners today. The manufacturers
claim that a saloon is a handicap to
their interests and a red flag in the
face of their employes. They also as
sert, most of those opposed being new
concerns, that they located in that end
of the city because of the ideal loca
tion, and the absence of saloons.
Daniel Cooney, the applicant for the
transfer, stated that he formerly con
ducted a saloon at Efest Main and
Cedar streets, and also at Avon Park
in Stratford. In his six and one-half
years as a proprietor he has been ar
rested twice, in Stratford.
Among the witnesses was Michael
Kelly, who for a score of years con
ducted a saloon in Water street. Kelly
is the owner of a lot in Connecticut
avenue. He favored the transfer.
James St. Claire of 131 Bishop ave
nue, stated that he never touched a
drop of liquor in his life. He favored
George Nagsy of 138 Bishop avenue,
John Rylands of Stratford avenue, and
Charles Bergstrom of No. 1 Elmira
street, favored the application.
Mrs. Mary Markey of 705 Connecti
cut avenue, who is the owner of five
hoyses on Hollister Heights, which is
also near the proposed location, didn't
care if a saloon was placed there as
her husband didn't drink. "If he
wanted a drink he'd go five miles to
get it, I couldn't stop him."
The funeral of Mary D., wife of Jo
seph Kennel, was held from the late
home, 1680 Iranistan avenue, this
morning at 9 o'clock, and half an hour
later from St. Augustine's church,
where a solemn requiem mass was
celebrated by Rev. Father McCormack.
Many sorrowing friends of this and al
so from New York city, the former
home of the deceased, attended the fu
neral. Schmidt's requiem mass was
sung by St. Augustine's choir. The
pall bearers were W. Coughlin. H.
Lyer, T. Flynn. W. Greene. Inter
ment was in the family plot at St.
The funeral of the late Joseph E.
Smallwood was held this morning
from his late residence, 1542 North
avenue, at 8:15 and from St. Augus
tine's church at 8:45. where Rev. Fa
ther Kennedy celebrated the high mass
of requiem. There was a large at
tendance of sorrowing relatives and
friends and a beautiful display of floral
offerings. The pall bearers were
Ralph Hearne. John Nolan. George
Ellsworth and Frank Devlin. Inter
ment was in St. Michael's cemetery.
Delia M., widow of Rev. E. W.
Maxcy, died Saturday at her home,
105 Sanford avenue, from ills incident
to advanced years and a hemorrhage.
She is survived' by two sons, Charles
H. Crabbe. of Troy. N. Y. and Prof.
Carroll L. Maxcy of Williams College.
She with her husband, Dr. 'Maxcy,
came to this city in 1867, the latter to
take charge of St. John's church which
then stood on the present site of the
post office. It was Dr. Maxcy who
built the present St. John's edifice at
Park and Fairfield avenues. Mrs.
Maxcy, like her husband, was imbued
with a snlendid Christian spirit, many
stories often being related of her con
nections with the church and her alms
giving. When Dr. Maxcy later was
rector of St. Luke's. Mrs. Maxcy was
very active in the church guild. Re
cently she had devoted most of her
time to Christ church, which was near
er her home. She was a trustee of the
Protestant Widows' Society, a man
ager of the Bridgeport Protestant Or
phan Asylum, and a member of the
board of the Burroughs Home. The
funeral services over her remains were
held this afternoon from her late res
idence at 2 o'clock and thence to St.
John's church at 2:30, where the rec
tor. Rev. Wm. H. Lewis, and Rev. E.
Livingston Wells, former pastor of St.
Luke's church, conducted the services.
The remains will be taken this even
ing to Oakland cemetery. Troy, N. Y.
George Washington Neubauer died
Saturday at the home of his mother.
Mrs. Barbara Neubauer. 194 Union
avenue, at the age of 46 years. He
was a native of this city and an oys
terman by trade. He was a member
of Norwalk Aerie. No. 588. F. O. E.
He Is survived by one brother, Ru
dolph H., and two sisters, Emma, wife
of Conrad Hockenberger. and Louise
Neubauer. His demise is felt with
keen regret by his associates by whom
he was well liked, but more especially
by his mother to whom he was closely
member of the Aero Club of America
whose identity Whitehead is bound
not to disclose, he has already spent
thousands in purchasing the equip
ment for his machine. Fast it is
nearing completion. By the middle
of July, if nothing goes amiss White
head expects to step into his car,
turn a lever and ascend to any de
sired height. Then he will turn an
other lever and start forward. Speed
ing, backing, turning sideways, as
cending or descending as he wishes
these are the stunts that Whitehead
will demand of his creation.
Gus Whitehead, as his friends best
know him, is one of the most expert
engine builders in the world. He has
succeeded in turning out engines
whose efficiency in proportion to their
weight is marvelous. Years ago he
was building engines for dirigible bal
loons. Back in 1901 he made a
flight in an airship of the aeroplane
type, out near Fairfield beach, when
he soared through the air for one
eighth of a mile and astounded the
few who were privileged to witness
the unheralded trial.

Frank A. Duane, supervising engi
neer for the Whiting Mfg. Co., stated
that at his plant there were 30 girls
and about 200 men employed, and that
within a short time that number would
be doubled. The company found in
their short experience that much val
uable work has been destroyed, be
cause of the condition of their em
ployes. President Hamilton of the Whiting
Co. stated that his company moved
from New York to this city because
of the ideal factory conditions which
were presented here, one of those con
ditions being lack of saloons in that
H. A. Philips manager of the Hen
kels Lace Co. stated that his company
employed 50 girls and about 20 men,
and will double that amount within
a short time. Their experience is
that a saloon will be very dertimental.
Charles E. Perkins and Harlan L.
Perkins, president and treasurer re
spectively of the American Lacquer
Co. opposed the transfer. Both relat
ed experiences the company had had
with drunks who prowl about the
neighborhood in the evening. On four
occasions their place has been burglar
ized, once a "drunk" who came from
a neighboring saloon.
Walter H. Bullard, assistant treasur
er of the E. H. H. Smith Silver Co.
in Stratford and Harry H. Reeves,
who owns property along Bruce's
Brook also opposed the application.
The commissioners did not decide
the issue today but will do so later.
The hearing on the application for
the transfer of the license of George
Tarasewich from 718 Railroad to 28 on
the same street did not materialize.
In the face of the strenuous opposition
the applicant decided to withdraw.

of years a resident of this city, died
yesterday at his home, 1347 Boston
avenue, aged 82 years, after being in

were interred Saturday afternoon in
the family plot in Oaklawn cemetery.
The services at the late home of the
deceased. Bulkley avenue, Southport,
were conducted by Rev. Dr. Guilbert
and were most impressive. Dr. Guil

regulated life was a credit to his town,

leys who were his ancestors. Rela
tives and friends gathered in large
numbers to pay their final respects to
