to Enforce Prohibiting Ordinances,
VIEWS OF GOV.
Poliev of thi State is Aaainst Exhibitions Known
Priz2 Fights Moving Pictures of the Fight are Much
More Objectionable and Should be Prevented Sug
gestion to Proper Authorities and a Personal Request
Hartford. Conn, July 7. That the
, roiicy of the stats -was against the
displaying of moving- pictures of the
Jeffries-Johnson fight was expressed
by Governor Frank B. Weeks in a
statement issued ty him tonight. The
gb-' ins of -the pictures the governor
says is against public morals and he
vrgw the heads of cities and boroughs
o enforce ordinances -which will pro
hibit their being shown.
Statement by Governor Weeks.
The statement follows:
The pork-y of the state of Connecticut-
is against exhibitions known as
prize fights. The statutes of the state
provide a maximum penalty of rive
years' imprisonment for any person
who is principal or second in a prize
fight and a fine and imprisonment for
tny person who is present at and gives
countenance to a prize fight. It is well
known that moving pictures of the
recent fight between Johnson and Jeff
ries are intended to be publicly ex
hibited as a source of profit and unless
prevented will be so exhibited in this
A Demoralizing Exhibition.
""If it is against public morals and
decency to have prize fights in our
state, in my opinion the public exhibi
tion in the state of moving pictures of
a prise fight would be much more ob
pctionabie than the fight itself, be--ause
it would reach and demoralize a
much larger class of individuals. In
cluding children; and the exhibition
-oncerning this particular fight would
Te attended with other features which
t-iouJd be prevented.
Suggestion to Prosecuting Officers.
' "It is illogical to prohibit prize
rights as against public morals and
not prohibit the exhibition of moving
pictures of a prize fight.
" I urgently suggest to the proper au
thorities of the cities and boroughs in
the state that ordinances which will
prevent such exhibitions be enforced,
mod I myself request prosecuting offi
cers throughout the state to take all
measures provided by law to prevent
vuch demoralizing and dangerous ei
lJiostions." NO SUGGESTION

Sully, long known as the "cotton king,"
was declared in contempt of court to

tained a court order restraining Sully
from paying out any money until the
suit of Black 'had been settled. Black
contended that Sully had committed
contempt in paying $4,600 to his

sented his salary of $400 a month for
little leas than a. year.

HEARING OF PETITION -
to dissolve injunction
Sum of $30,000 Is Involved in the Wilk
inson Will, Two-thirds of Which
Before Judge Shumway in the su
perior court room on Thursday there
was a hearing on the petition of Don
ate G. and Robert W. Perkins for the
dissolution of an injunction in the case
of Mary E. Perkins vs. John F. Car
penter of Putnam, administrator of
the estate of Smith Wilkinson. Miss
Perkins is of New London, but. for
merly lived here. Mr. Wilkinson was
her grandfather and also grandfather
of the petitioners, who are half-brothers
of Miss -Perkins.
By Mr. Wilkinson's will his estate
was left in trust to his wife and
daughters and at their death to go to
their heirs. He left three daughters,
one of whom was the - first wife of
Eomund Perkins, father of the two
petitioners, and she was Miss Perkins'
mother. Her own brothers were Fran
cis W. and Edmund Perkins, Jr. .
As all Mr. Wilkinson's daughters are
dead, the trust terminated, and Rob
ert W. Perkins took out administratinn
on the estate of his half-brother in
New York, where It is claimed he lived
and a bon of $30,000 was furnished.
Miss Perkins, however, claimed her
brother's place of abode was here. Ac
cording to Connecticut law only full
blood relatives inherit estates, while
in New York' half-blood ranks equal
with full-blood. The petitioners claim
the estate should be probated in New
York, and Miss Perkins claims it
should be6 here. The injunction re
strains the administrator from turning
over1 any- of the estate to D. G. and R.
W. Perkins.. There is $30,000 for is
tribution, which, according to Miss
Perkins, should go to her. while the
petitioners claim it should be divided
between the three of them. Attorney
Perkins represented th petitioners and
Attorney Beers appeared for Miss Per
kins. Judge Shumway reserved decision.
