Less Production In State Electricity Survey Shows Decline of One Per Cent During Past Year—Utilities Report Loss x Electrical production by steam and water powered generating stations In Connecticut during the first six months of 1935 was ap proximately one per cent less than during the first half of 1934, ac cording to statistics compiled from the monthly reports of the United States Geological Survey. Actual output of Connecticut’s generating plants for the first half of the current year, the reports show, was 613,980,000 kilowatt hours as compared with a total production of 620,652,000 kilowatt hours In the corresponding period last year. Months In which there were gains in generation as com pared with the corresponding months of 1934 were ,’January, April and May, while decreases were recorded In February, March and June. There was a gain of a bout three per cent in July, which left the total generation for the first seven months of 1936 about .05 per cent below that of the MANY POLITICAL PARTIES IN VIEW (Continued from Page 1.) eluding the socialist-controlled city of Bridgeport, the organization has a permanent place on the ballot. Points of Dissension Principal points of dissentlon were found In six other controver sial cities. - Danbury offered a taxpayers party which once defeated the bit terly opposed republican and dem ocratic parties. Norwalk, headquarters of the so cialists, presented the people's party as the city’s political cqm plexion forecast one of the most disturbing elections in many years. The East Haven Progressive RenLand Taxpayers, Inc., was at tempting a housecleaning in that normal republican stronghold and at Waterbury independent tickets were formed by both republicans and democrats, with socialists and communists swelling the number to six places on the machines. Norwich brought forth the first labor ticket while the Connecticut Federation of Labor prepared to challenge the advisability of offer ing its own ticket in the state elec tions next year at its golden jubi lee convention at Danbury. A citizens’ party was prepared to oppose republican and democratic organizations at Enfield. Many of the new parties are without candidates and their pe titions have been referred to the attorney general to determine their legality as nominatlnng petitions. The election will be held Oct. 7. Labor Party Proposal Danbury, Conn., Sept. 4.—(UP) —The advisability of organizing a state labor party for the 1936 elections may be put to a referen dum, it was Indicated to-day at the golden jubilee convention of the Connecticut Federation of La bor. The political issue’ was one of the most controversial to come be fore the delegates and officials were wary of forcing an open ex pression without first polling the locals. Demand for the new party was brought before the convention by President J. Nicholas Danz yestcr day but resolutions ottered later In the day from Hartford questioned the inauguration of the movement without first sounding out the sen timent of the entire membership and had approval of the American Federation. The referendum was suggested by John (lately, president of the Massachusetts Federation, who said the Bay State organization had taken that course. Cnucusses for Officers Resolutions reached the deadline to-day and caucuses occupied the delegates to prepare a slate of of ficers for elections Thursday. Among the resolutions was one demanding the governor call a special session of the general as sembly to treat welfare problems provide for participation in the ; federal security act and obtain ■ further allotments before they are shut off this month. 1 Gov. Cross, appearing before 1 the convention late yesterday, re ■ iterated he was willing to call a ' special session providing the demo cratic, republican and socialist fac tions agreed on a definite program. “Nothing could be accomplished 1 by calling a special session of the general assembly to enact a law ' without a program In advance,” he > said. Appoint Commission [ He suggested he might be dele ■ gates to appoint a commission to prepare the program or that the 1 legislature leadership might get to ' gcther and agree on a workable ’ plan. 1 Efforts will be made to have the convention pledge the federa , tion to support of ratificatoln of the federal child labor amendment, which was killed off early this . year when Connecticut became the 36th state to vote disapproval. 1 Secretary John J. Egan, Brldge - port, appeared unopposed for re 1 election after Dang announced he was not seeking office. The presl l dent had been mentioned as a can . dldate for the secretaryship. Francis X. Moore, Hartford: ! Thomas J. Shea, Middletown and .. George Moffett, Stamford, were leading candidates for president. same months of 1934. Production of electricity by steam power In Connecticut during the first half of the year was practically unchanged In volume as compared with the first six months of 134, the decline this year amounting to only a fraction of one per cent. The 1935 output by steam generation was 428,687, 000 kilowatt hours against 431, 406,000 kilowatt hours In the Jan uary-June period of 1934. New Record Hydro production underwent a decrease of about two per cent from 189,246,000 kilowatt hours In 1934 to 185,313,000 kilowatt hours this year. This decline was not of a surprising nature, how ever, for the twelve months of 1934 produced the all-time high hydro generation for Connecticut. March, 1936, came very close to breaking the all-time monthly re cord for water power production with a total output of 40,467,000 kilowatt hours; which fell just short of matching the 40,499,000 kilowatt-hour peak of April, 1933. January, February and March all showed hydro gains over the cor responding months of 1934, with the slight loss thus being concen trated In April, May " and June when shortage of precipitation cut down hte rate of stream flow. Connecticut utilities generally report that the slight loss in the first six months of 1935 was in In dustrial and commercial utilisation of power, and that domestic sales not only held up well but In most cases actually Increased due large ly to the general reductions In rates during the past few years and to the growing appreciation of the advantages of electrical appli ances In the home. The capacity of Connecticut’s generating facilities is more than double the demand made upon them in 1934, so that the State's utilities are ready to meet any Increase in demand for power which will come from In dustry as soon as business returns to the normal.

ACTON AGAINST CITY WITHDRAWN Settlement of the $5,000 damage suit of Jeremiah Fitzgerald against the city of Waterbury was an Rain Dampens Auto Inspection Totals Seventy-seven of 14)0 Cars Pass Tests Today; Garage Owners Guests Tonight at Hotel Elton Meeting Heavy rain during the morning caused a considerable reduction In the number of cars brought to the testing station on Freight street for inspection, but the total checked by Inspectors just before noon to day also disclosed a decrease in the number of failures. r.jm a total of 180 checked dur ing the morning, 66 were passed on all points. Twelve brought back for re-checks after repairs had been made were passed to bring the total to 77. The percentage of failures registered yesterday was somewhat higher. Out of nearly 600 cars checked during the day nearly 70 per cent were rejected. As was the case yesterday, faulty brakes and headlights were again the prevailing causes of failure. Several motorists who returned for another examination after having brakes adjusted today were again rejected, although inspectors said that the number falling to pass the test on the second try was small. One. driver complained that, he had had his brakes checked twice at a well known local garage and that he was losing valuable time on the test. The bfake test Is the last of the examinations. Drivers who success fully pass the preliminary tests for windshield wipers, lights and wheel alignment often do not fare so well at the brake testing booth. Car owners who do not pass will not be summoned for re-examlna tlon until the number of volunteers grows considerably smaller. At a meeting tonight at the El ton sponsored by the Connecticut Automotive Trades association, ga nounced today. Notice of withdraw al of the action was filed in the common pleas court where the liti gation was instituted. The plaintiff, represented by Attorney William B.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. rage owners will hear an explana tion of the mechanical processes connected with the Inspection. All local garage owners have been in vited to attend.
