The Catholic Women's association will hold a meeting at 8 o'clock to night. There will be a meeting of the junior branch of the Children of Mary at the Sacred Heart church this evening. The finn of Lang & Phelan has sold to out of town parties the stock of oils, paints, etc, belonging to A. H. Dews of East Main street. The German Catholic Benefit and the Holy Family societies have been merged into one organization and will hereafter be known as the German Catholic Sick Benefit society. Representatives of the several fire companies held a meeting Saturday night and decided to hold the annual ball on the evening of January 21. A number of new and up-to-date se lections were sung by the members of the Liberty Glee club at their re hearsal yesterday afternoon. Edward S. Lipps, aged 28 years, died at his home on the Thomaston road yesterday afternoon. The remains will be taken to Suffield for burial. The six days' fair of the Germania Mannerchor opens at their new hall on Monday evening of next week. Finke's orchestra is to furnish music and Prof Butz will be prompter. The society are making extra efforts to have a big time. Miss Clara Quinn of Mahonoy City, Penn, is spending a short vacation with Miss Lizzie Corcoran of Bishop street. Miss Quinn is an accomplished violinist and has delighted many of her friends since her advent here, with skillful performances on this instru ment. Joe Duggan, the well known trolley conductor, reigned his position with the Traction Co on Saturday evening, and has accepted a position with the Goodyear Glove Co of Naugatuck. Mr Duggan has made many friends ip. this city who will be sorry to learn of his departure. The Rev Francis J. Parry, D. D. the new pastor of the First Baptist church, preached in the morning and evening yesterday. The attendance at both ser vices was large. The Rev Mr Parry is an interesting speaker and promises to at once take a place among the pop ular clergymen of the city. The funeral of Mrs Margaret Dum phy was held yesterday afternoon at 2:30 from her late home on Mill street to St Patrick's church, where services were held, the Rev Father Gibbons of ficiating. The pallbearers were George Miller, Joseph Dillon, Samuel Hickok, Thomas Dillon and Timothy Guilfoile. Interment was in St Joseph's ceme tery. The funeral of John Smith took place from his late home in Simons ville yesterday afternoon to St Ce cilia's church, where services were conducted by the Rev Dr Martin. In terment was in St Joseph's cemetery. The pallbarers were Frank J. Wren, Richard Lawlor, Patrick Malone, Frank Bowes, John MoCabe and John Carey. St Patrick's hall was well filled by ladies yesterday afternoon to listen to Miss Annie1 O'Connor, the supreme sec retary of the Catholic Women's Benev olent legion, explain the object and gains of the association. Miss O'Con nor came here for the purpose of es tablishing a branch of this insurance order and secured enough names yes terday to obtain a charter for this city. She was introduced by P. F. Bannon, the president of the male branch here. It is quite probable that Miss O'Connor Willi start a branch of this society in the parish of the church of the Sacred Heart some time later. Mrs W. E. Quigley acted as- temporary president of the meeting. Here is a football challenge that will probably create a little interest in its outcome. It is understood that the St Thomas cadets football team are de sirous of getting a chance at the local Y. M. C. A. eleven ,and have issued a challenge for such a game. The Y. M. C. A. boys, it is said, are inclined to think themselves a little above the St Thomas cadets in this game, but might accept the challenge if the latter would show what they could do with some ether team first. With this in view, Fred Bauby, captain of the Welcome football team wants to arrange a game with the St Thomas . cadets. If the cadets bea.t the Welcomes (and Fred says they won't have an easy thing) the Y. M. C A. team will very likely consider their challenge. Captain Bauby would be glad to hear from the St Thomas cadets either . dirertlv or The ladies' auxiliary of the A. O. H. will meet at City hall to-morrow even ing at half past seven. Special forecast for Connecticut: Rain to-night and Tuesday, warmer; northerly winds becoming southwest erly. Edward Lipps, the proprietor of the road house known as the "chicken farm," above Waterville, died at that house yesterday noon, after a week's attack of Bright's disease. Alice, the three months old daughter of Mr and Mrs William Nuhn, 250 Pond street, died yesterday. The funeral took plaoe this afternoon with prayers at the house by the Rev F. D. Buckley and interment in Riverside cemetery. Yesterday might appropriately be called chyrsanthemum day, as almost every young man and woman on the streets were decked out with one of the white whiskered flowers. The larger the flower, the happier the wearer seemed to feel. Alonzo M. Rabe died at his home on the Buck's Hill road Saturday. The deceased was a member of Wadhams' post, G. A. R., and the organization will meet this evening to take action regarding the funeral which will take place at 2 o'clock to-morrow after noon. Michael Horan, one of Waterbury's old time residents, died in the alms house to-day. The remains were re moved to Mulville's morgue. The da ceased had worked for a number of years with different persons on Buck's Hill and was regarded as an honest, and faithful employe. At the church of the Sacred Heart yesterday Father Egan preached the sermon of the day. He took his sub ject from All Soul's day, which fell on last Tuesday, and spoke interestingly on the connection between this feast and prayer and purgatory. The sing ing at the 10:30 mass was excellent. The case of Thomas McCue vs the City Lumber and Coal Co was tried be fore Judge Cowell inthedistrictcourtto day. It is an action to recover for work performed. Attorney Seery for plaintiff; Terry & Bronson for defend ant. The arguments in the case of Samuel Frank vs George Harrington, were finished this afternoon. Decision was reserved in both cases. There was a good deal of kicking at the opera house Saturday evening on account of the absence of prgrammes. To be sure there were some pro grammes on hand, but not enough for one-half of those present. The printer evidently did not expect more than the usual Saturday night 'crowd, but the programmes were sadly missed by those unfortunate enough not to re ceive one. Notice was served on City Clerk Grady to-day by Attorney Peasley, sating that he would bring suit against the city for Mrs Jennie Kane. The al legations are that on October 8, she fell on the walk in front of 138 South Main street and received severe in juries.' One of the iron covers over the coal holes, used on so many walks in this city, will be made much of in the suit. M Town Clerk Belden filed his mortu ary report for the month, of October to-day. There were 83 deaths of the following nature: Diphtheria and croup 7, typhoid fever 4, diarrhoeal diseases, under five 7, over five 1, con sumption or phthisis 9, pneumonia or lung fever 7, bronchitis 2, all diseases of nervous system 5, heart disease 6, accident and violence 3, all other causes except Btill births 32. Total 83. Deaths under five 35, still births 6. No greater kindness could have been done to the entertainment-goers of Waterbury than has been by the offi cers of the Friendly league, when they secured an evening of Anthony Hope's time, that he might give selections from his own popular works for the pleasure of a Waterbury audience. He will read from "The Prisoner of Zenda," "The Dolly Dialogues" and other writings, at the Jacques, on Sat urday evening of this week, at prices which will admit of no one needing to stay away because it will cost too much to go. The centennial celebration of Har mony lodge, F. and A. M., will take place this evening and promises to be largely attended. Past Master John C. Chatfield will act as marshal from the Masonic temple to Oddfellows' building and F. H. LaForge will es cort the grand officers from the Scovill house to the banquet hall. Masons can secure tickets to the hall at the temple or from the reception commit tee at the hall.

Billy Joyce ot the New York team made an offer of $3,000 to Von der Ahe for Donahue, but he refused to sell. He expects that af ter the league meting he may go to some other club and reels conhdent that if he was with any of the clubs in the first division last season he could have won five-eighths of his games. ffi The funeral of Mrs Hanora Dalton W took place this morning from her late house on Wall street to tne cnurcn or the Sacred Heart, ' where a solemn mass of requiem was celebrated with Lthese officers: Celebrant, Rev Father Treanor: deacon, Rev v atner ttgan; Vsub-deacon, Rev Father Kennedy. The pallbearers were: 'Mortimer Doran, 'George Coriden, John F. Farrell, Pat rick Cosgrove, Patrick Grady and John Guerin.

Hanlon and Miss Katie Dillane. The interment was in the family plot in St Joseph's cemetery. At the annual meeting of the Con necticut Teachers' Annuity guild, held in Hartford Saturday, Miss Ellea J. Whiton of this city was elected as vice-president and trustee of the asso ciation.

NO HOPE FOR DURRANI. The Supreme Court Refuses a Writ of Habeas Corpus. Washington, Nov 8. The United States supreme court affirmed the de cision of the circuit court for the Cali fornia circuit in refusing a writ of habeas corpus to William H. Durrant, who is under sentence of death for the murder of Blanche Lamont. This was Durrant's last hope, . and his friends were in hopes his life might be spn, but this last decision allows the law to take its course, and Durrant will have to pay the death penaty. BASE BALL MEETING. Philadelphia, Nov 8. The annual meeting of the national base ball lea gue will open at the hotel Walton this evening. Several important questions will come up for consideration and the convention will probably continue all the week. ' SHOT. IN THE MOUTH. Southington, Nov 8. Eugene Ma rion, 55, a prominent man and well known in fraternal organizations, was found dead this morning.. It is sup posed that he committed suicide by shooting himself in the mouth. TRAIN HELD UP AND BURNED. Desperate Work of Four Robber on tbe Atlantic and Pacific Road. Albuquerque, N. M., Nov. 8. The 'At lantic & Pacific passenger train No. 2 from the West was held up by four men near Grant's Station, ninety-five miles west of this city, at 7.30 Saturday night. After blowing open the express company's safe the robbers wrecked the train, which caught fire, the ex press, baggage and smoking cars being totally destroyed. It is not yet known whether they were successful in obtaining booty, but It is thought a large amount of money was carried by the train. The robbers had boarded the train at some point further west, and when near Grant's one of them climbed onto the engine, and, .covering the engineer with a gun, ordered him to stop the train. The coaches were cut off and left at the stock yards., The rest of the train was then taken out a mile ajid a half from the station, where the express safe was dismantled. After robbing the safe the robbers re versed the engine and made their escape. The engine and baggage car ran at a terrific rate until they struck the coaches, which'were standing near the stock yards, and set them on fire. Fortunately the passengers had all left the coaches before the collision, and none were injured. A late rumor is to the effect that the fireman, Henry Ablo, who was com pelled by the robbers to run the engine when the coaches were cut off, was killed by the explosion when the safe was blown open.
