VOL. VIII. KO. 306. WATERBURY, CONN., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1895. PRICE TWO CENTS DINGLEY TO BE LEADER. HE IS SELECTED THE WAYS AS CHAIRMAN AND MEANS. OF Foreign Affairs T,tkely to Go to mtt. Com merce to Hepburn, Appropriation to Cannon, Naval Affair to Bontello Con test OTer Elective Officers. Washixgtox, Nov. 30. It is generally tmderstood that Representative Dingley of Maine is to be chairman of the com mittee on waya and means and leader of the house of representatives. This would Feem to indicate that Mr. Reed, who will be the new speaker, does not intend to tft influenced so much by seniority of service in making up the com mittees as by the fitnos9 of men for the places which he has to fill. That Mr. Dingley is not the senior member 6f the committee on ways and means is due, however, to the fact that in the last congress he voluntarily gave up his place on that oommitteo so that it could be filled by Mr. Reed. The speaker may feel that he is under obligations to give to his colleague all that he would have been entitled to under the seniority rule had he not vacated his place on the committee. Other important chairmanships that are understood to have been definitely de cided upon by Mr. Reed are: Mr. Hitt of Illinois, committee on for eign affairs. Mr. Hepburn of Iowa, committee on in terstate and foreign commerce. Mr. Bingham of Pennsylvania, commit tee on postoflSces and postroads. Mr. Boutelle of Maine, committee on naval affairs. Mr. Milllken of Maine, committee on public buildings and grounds. Mr. Hermann of Oregon, committee on tivors and harbors. Mr. Daniells of New York, committee on elections. Mr. Harmer of Pennsylvania, commit tee on the Distriot of Columbia. j Mr. Payne having been passed over in the selection of a chairman for the com mittee on ways and means it is regarded as not at all improbable that Mr. Hen derson of Iowa will be pasBed over in the eamo way for the chairamnship of the committee on appropriations, and that the place will be given to Mr. Cannon of Illi nois. Mr. Cannon had this place in the Fifty-first congress, and he is doing all that he can consistently do to secure it again. If Mr. Cannon is selected, it will follow that ho will bo a member of the commit tee on rules, as will also Mr. Dingley. The entire membership of that important committee, which will portion out the time of the house to committees and will dictate absolutely the work that is to be done, will be Mr. Reed, Mr. Dingley and Mr. Cannon on the Republican side and former Speaker Criep and Mr, jCatchings Of Mississippi on the Democratic side. Some of the Other Chairmanships I In addition to the appointments which are regarded as having been definitely de termined upon there are others w'-'-are believed to bo practical! AIr Walker of Massachusetts cb be likely to succeed in his candidacy for the chairmanship of the committee on bank ing and ourrency, and Mr. Hull of Iowa is believed to be slated for the committee on military affaire. The committeo on coinage, weights and measures is one about which there is con siderable uncertainty, and as far as can be learned Mr. Reed has not yet promised the chairmanship to any one, but Mr. Charles W. Stone of Pennsylvania is re garded as the most probable selection for the place. . . Some Who Are Not on the Slate. If Messrs. Payne of New York, Dalzell of Pennsylvania and Henderson of Iowa are passed by for the chairmanships to which they aspire, there will bo three of the most prominent men in the house to be provided for by Mr. Reed in some way commensurate with their prominence. Messrs. Payne and Dalzell will both doubt less have places on the committeo on ways and means, and Mr. Henderson of Iowa will doubtless have a place on the committee on appropriations, Mr. Dalzell was chairman of the com mittee on Pacific railways in the Fifty first congress, and he may have that place again, or he may go to the head of the- committee on the judiciary it Mr. iteed concludes to pass over Mr. Ray of New York, who is the senior Republican on that committee. In the Fifty-first con gress Mr. Henderson, in addition to his place on the committee on appropriations, had the chairmanship of the committee on militia, and he may havo either that committee or some other one in this con- gress. Mr. Dolliver of Iowa is a man of such prominence as to be entitled to a good chairmanship if he wants it. He ranked next to Mr. Boutelle on the committee on naval affairs in the last congress and was also a member of the committee on ex penditures in the state department. Mr. Reed might give him the chairmanship of the latter committee, though it is one of Tery little importance. Minor Contests Become Important. There have been few new developments in the contest for the 'elective house offi cers, and everything points to the success of the combine ticket, headed by Mc Dowell for clerk. Mr. Reed's position in regard to the contest has been the subject of much spec , ulation.. j As far as can be determined by surface indications he has remained absolutely neutral. Ho cannot remain so when the caucus meets, however, and if he should take the most effective method of show ing that he was not with the combine, as has been intimated, and should vote for Henderson for clerk thero would doubtless be a general scurrying on the, part of the wavering supporters of the combine to got on the eide of the speaker. Mr. Reed's vote might thus be tha means of overturning all the carefully prepared plans of the combine. ft'o Mercy For Sanjjaily. HAVAS, Nov. 30.

The trial ot Mrs. Charlotte Howell for the murder of 19-year-old Libbie Knepp at Tioga last May has taken a sensational turn. Mrs. Howell was put on the stand in her own behalf to testify to what occurred in the district attorney's office when she was brought here by the defectives for ex amination before the formal charge ugainst her was made. She testified that she was asked to print In Roman capitals a letter which was dictated to her by the lawyers and detectives, and 6he did so. She also declared that DupJgnac, one of the detectives, made insulting advances to her, offering her $25. She was told that if she would make a full confession they (the detectives) would see that she got clear. Mrs. Howell, who belongs to a well known New York family, was neatly dressed and made a good impression. Detective Dupignac went on the stand and made an emphatio denial of her testi mony concerning him, addiirj that she had not been in any way intimidated. The letter which Mrs. Howell says sho printed thus was, with others, to be used to establish the fact that sho wrote the 100 or more threatening notes received by the girl several months before her death. Judge Mitchell ruled these out, however, which is considered a strong point for the defense. The ovidence against the prisoner is entirely circumstantial. HYPPOLITE'S TROUBLES- A Formidable Expedition Against Haiti, Headed by IoUrand Canal. Philadelphia, Nov. 80.. -John S. Dur ham, ex-minister to Haiti and charge d'affaires to Santo Domingo, had some thing to say about the Kingston (Jamai ca) dispatch received- here and in New York to the effeot that a formidable expe dition is being organized against Haiti by Boisraud Canal, who is being aeslsted by a well known Philadelphia firm. "It is doubtless true, as a logical out come of the present political condition In Haiti," said Mr. Durham. "President Hyppollte is not seeking re-election, but is arranging to secure as his successor a man of his own choice. On the other band, the refugees are preparing to make desperate efforts to capture the presidency and overthrow the present government." From .other sources it was learned that inquiries have been made in this city re cently looking to the purchase of arms and ammunition and their transportation to Kingston, Jamaica, by a man concern ing whom there appears to be a mystery. HOUSESM1THS' STRIKE. An Amicable Adjustment of the Difference Is Probable. ' New York, Nov. 30. There is every probability that the strike of the Hduse smlths and Brldgemen'a Union against the firms of J. B. & J. M. Cornell and Milliken Bros, has reached its culminat ing point, and the prospeets of an early settlement of the difficulties is good. The leaders of the strike do not cling on to the proposition of increasing the wage scale 25 cents a day as much as they do the cardinal point at issue namely, the recognition of the union. To this Mr. Cornell was sternly opposed, but it is said, on good authority, that through influences which are being brought to bear upon him he will consent to the granting of the concession, and by so doing will end the strike.

New York, Nov. 30. Robert Dale oi 412 West Seventeenth' street made a des perate attempt to kill his daughter Rosa, 1 year old, and himself. He threw the child from a fourth story window and jumped after her. It is the old story of the idle husband, who spends all his money for liquor, and hard working wife, who attempts to sup port the worthless husband and her little children. One week ago the family consisted ot Robert Dale, who occasionally worked alongshore and who Always drank; the wife Annie, who, to support the family, took in washing, and two children Rob ert, 8 years old, and little Rosa. The family occupied the fourth floor ol 412 West Seventeenth street. In the early part of the week the boy Robert was taken sick with diphtheria. His mother took him to the New York hospital, and from there he was taken to Roosevelt hospital, where he died on Thursday There was no money in the house with which to pay funeral expenses, but Mrs. Dale went to Undertaker Hanna, and be agreed to bury the child and wait for hla money. Yesterday the child was buried, but in stead of going to the grave Mrs. Dale was obliged to stay at home and do washing all day, in order that the funeral expenses might be paid and that there might be food in the house. Her husband, how ever, went to the cemetery. On his return he found his wife with Rosa in her arms. Tried to Kill His Wife. He at once began to upbraid his wife for the death of little Robert, sayiog that she should have kept the child at home and cared for him rather than send him to a hospital. Mrs. Dale replied that she could not earn money to support her husband and family and at the same time give proper care and attention to a sick child. This made Dale angry, and, going down to the yard, he found an ax, with which he returned to the room. "You killed my boy! I'll kill you!" he shouted, and made an attempt to brain hia wife. She dropped the baby to the floor and clinched with Dale. For a few minutes the man and woman fought all about the room for the possession of the ax. Suddenly Dale ceased struggling and seized the baby from the floor. "If I can't kill you, I will kill the baby and myself !" he yelled. Before Mrs. Dale could prevent It her husband hurled the baby through" the win dow, glass and all. Ho looked at his wife a seoond and then plunged headforemost after the baby. Mrs. Dale ran, shrieking, to the street, and two policemen hastened to the yard in the rear, expecting to find only the bruised and broken bodies of the father and child. Instead they found the baby lying in the corner by the fence apparently unin jured, while Dale lay near by, seeming not muoh hurt. On the arrival of an ambulance from the New York hospital the doctors could not find any indications of injury about the child. It was found that Dale had sustained a compound fracture of the left ribs and a broken arm. He was taken to the hospital, while the child was left with the mother, who refused to part with it.

Complaint has been lodged with the selectmen, relative to the encroachment on the bed of the Naugatuek river op posite Jackson street, and the Mad river at Dublin street.

''Don't," begs a physician, "try to go to sleep with cold feet. You may suc ceed, but it is at an unnecessary waste of effort. Hot water i bags are now so cheap that every bedroom in the house may be supplied1 with one, or one of the little Japanese hot boxes", which are even morexonvenieht, since they do not have to 'depend upon the boiler supply. More discomfort is had and' more colds, that might never' have, developed, cemented in this waythanin any other. ' The remedy prescribed by a famous German physician for insomnia is on this principle: wring out tin not a drop drips a,pair of white cotton stock ings in cbld'water, put them on as wet as they wia still ce, and draw over them a pair of dry .woolen ones. Let the cot ton stockings be larger than those usu ally worn, and the woolen ones of course still bigger. Hand knitted woolen or the thick 'ones sold at the athletic goods shops are the best to use, and the result of this steaming process, so far from be ing in, any way, harmful, aa might be f eared,is said to be magical in its relief and agreeable sensations. She Got There. The other day a young girl, who is nothing if ' not unconventional, took the path acrosB 'the Common that leads over the projected subway and is guarded on the end'witlr a wire fence. As she neared the fence she noticed the amused glances of the men she met and over- neard some one say. as sne passed a gror of English high sbhool boys, "Say, fellows, she'll have to climb the fence." But the girl knew.a trick worth two of that, for when she 'reached the dread obstruction, which , consisted of but a single wire,, she raised it slightly, and, stooping, went' nEder, easily, to the in tense delight of tho waiting and watch ing boys. The newi woman, even if she does not wear-bloomers, is not daunted by a little fence. Boston Post. Physical Woman. - According to one writer, men will have to ' watch "but" if they do not mean to grow ? physically inferior, to women.

She has played golf, cricket and lawn tennis more than ever beforehand cerfainly such" an army of wheelwomen as scoured the country highways and byways last summer was never seen before in this cotoitry.
