Ho said ho had taken morphlno yesterday.
Two ofllcers led Purdy to the Chambers Street

to the Bellevue hospital. The surgeon of tho

Montreal and American gentlemen left the clty
by special train on Saturday for Lake Mem'
plire.magog to select'a.slte for.the erectlon pt
mammoth first-class summer hotel on the Can-

Futvoye, of tho Central Vermont; Mr. G. W.
Swett, manager of the Windsor hotel, and
Mcssrs. Hartt, Hcctor, MacKenzle, Arcli, Cis

of one of tho gentlemen present the slto se

his own mind but that the erectlon of the hotel
would bo shortly commenced."
Mit. Wilde has temporarlly abandoned hla

ing lectures in London on the prosalc subject
of America. "If you agk rae," heaald, "what
first struck my attentlon in Now York, I would
say lt was thls, that if the Araericana aro not
tho most well-drcssed people in the world they
aro certalnly the most comfortably dressed. I
I saw no raga ln New York at all. One Is

A suit haa been commenced ngainst Sher-
man & Jenne, insurance agenta at Brattleboro,
by the New York Llfe Insurance company, A.
P. Chllds, general agent, for llbel. An auony-
mous clrcular haa been dlstrlbuted by tho de
fendants In whlch wna quoted an article from
tho New York Ileraltl of February 1G, Btating
that tho general term of New York courts had
held the New York Llfe Insurance company's
tontine syntem to be based on false representa
tiona nnd breacb of contract, in fnlllng to keep
th tontino funda Beparate, and then went on
to make comparisons unfavorable to the New
York Llfe of Its agenta" commissiona and ex
ponsoa, wlth those of the Mutual Llfe. Tho
plalntlff 'g clnlm ls that no such declsion as that
reported ln tho IleralU and circular haa In fact
ever been rendered, and that tho lcglslaturo of
the Btate of New York and tho full bench of the
supremo court In general term, have fully nus
talned the action of the company, decldlng
that Ithad fully carrled out both tho letterand
splrlt of the contract. The clrculars wero dla-
tributed by Sherman & Jenne, but lt is under-
stood that lt was by tho lnstructlona of the
Mutual Llfe, whlch company it ls expected wlll
defend the case.
Since the nbolltion of the match tax the mak

number waa fonr carda of twenty-threo eoh

A Rutland correspondent of tho Sprlngfield
Iiepublican has thls to ay about tho Rutland
railroad trouble: " Clement clalmato control
forty thousand Bharea out of slxty-elght thou-
Band, and may very llkely win; but then agaln
he may not. Governor Page'a frlenda say that
thero is n good doal of bluff in the Clement
claima, and intlmate that now both sldea aro
falrly understood a good many proxles glven
the Clements on the Btrength of thelr first
statementa may be revoked. Tbe feellng In
town certalnly is strongly in Page's favor. Ile
Isamanwhoso frlends stand byhim, ho has
done a great deal for tho town, and he has be
haved well ' under firo,' all of which helps to
turn publlc feellng in his favor. Aslde from
tho first hot-headed outburst of his attorneys in
tho local paper, he has acted on the defenslve
and hasn't injured his case by ' shooting of his
month ' ln public. IIo walted until people had
begun to get curloua ns to what ho had to Eay
for hlmsclf, nnd then spoke ln a wny that has
helped hiui wlth tho community and wlll be
llkely to do so wlth tho stockholdera. Thero Is
a little feellng that he hmn't had a fair show,
and his lnalnuatlon that tho Smith ilng ls back
of the Clement raid won't hurt hlm nny. Tho
Idea of hla backlng explaina to them why the
Clements, who never have been railroad men,
and who have got blg interest on thelr invest
ruents, are trylng to buy a road that lan't in

On Thursdav last a teletrram wag received
from Burlington clty authorltiea, statlng that
tho ntght prevloug thelr pollco had arrested a
man and boy, on tho Btrength of a telegram
nent irom tma piace on tne morning aner ine
rocent burglarles. They had found tho parties
ln n car ln tlio depot yard, nnd nad recognized
tbo man aa belng ono llurley, a convict who
had recently served out a throo yeara' term at
Windsor, to whlch placo no nad been sentoncea
for a robbery committed In Burlington. Slier
iff Tuttle and II. A. Huse, Ktq., went to Bur
lington at once, whero they held lntervlewg
wltn tno man and boy geparateiy. ine ooy,
who was fifteen yeara old, gavo his name as
George Willlams, and statod that bo had for
merly and uutll ma parentH died, nveu in
Akron, 111. ; that he had recently como from
Malne, whero ho had vlsited several places;
that he went from there to Canada; that ho
had etopped at Sherbrooko and St. Albans;
and thnt bo had never been as far south In Ver
mont as Montpelier. IIo further stated that
he had never Been his companlon until tbo day
before, when ho met him In the cars. It ap
peared from tho Interview with tho man that
he had been ln oxactly tho same placea ag
tho boy and at much the same tlraea; and the
boy was at last mado to confess that ho had
been wlth blm some of the time since ho waa
ln Malno. A careful examinatlon of artlcles
takon from them at the tlmo of thelr nrrost
served to reveal notblng sugplclous, but only
to indlcate that there was notbing to prove that
they had ever been In Montpelier. Mr. Huse
camo home on the nlght expresa and returned
to Burlington on the early morning train, ac
companied by Dr. W. D. Reld, who went to
Identify the rogue, If posslble. Upon seelng
them, Dr. Reld waa at once convlnced that the
man waa not the aamo whom he had encoun
tered at Mr. IliU'a on the nlght of the bur
glarles. His declsion belng in thia dlrection, it
ls needloss to glvo -hla reasona for the same.
About tbe boy he was not bo posltive, but could
give no evidence to prove that he waa the rlght
one. It further appeared tbatthetwohad been
travellng ln company with two others, nnd it
la thought by aomo that tho latter may have
been tho thievea ; but thoae under arrest claimed
to liavo parted with them tne day ueiore, nnd
to know nothlng of thelr whereabouts at that
tlme. The Montpelier gontlemen returned on
Friday, gatlslled that thoy had not found thelr
men. Tho trampa were released, for lack of
sufllclent evidence to hold them.
