1910 NORWICH BULLETIN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15 RAID ON TENDERLOIN CLUB HOUSE All Patrons Found in the Resort Were Summoned to , - Appear Before Grand Jury. . New -York, Sept. 30. A new moveHn the recent, prosecution of gambling ih this city, whereby the jlan' of the dis trict attorney's office to use alleged devotees offr betting as witnesses against : the keepers of such resorts, was disclosed today during a raid on a. clubhouse in the Tenderloin, which, was made under the personal super vision of Assistant District Attorney Sjmith. Hitherto it has been the custom only to arrest the alleged nianag.ers, for whom warrants had 'bevn obtained, while patrons found in the resorts were set free. But today one hun dred and fifty men who were found in the clubhouse when detectives forc ed their way in by battering open the doors, received a -shock, when each was subpoenaed to appear before the WOMAN'S LEAGUE Doing Practical and Efficient Work in South Norwalk. The Woman's Municipal league of South Norwalk, liiet in the Congrega tional church this week. Although this wa the first meeting as a league since June, the reports showed that committees had met and that a great deal of work had been done. The committee on streets stated that the dry season had interfered with the growth of the new trees on West street and that as soon as rain came these trees and the hedge in Kailroad avenue would be properly fertilized and cared for. The chairmrin of the committee on schools reported that the unsanitary conditions which had prevailed in some of the city schools had been remedied. The report of the rest room com mittee was esticoui agitiK. This showed that during the vacation season, the members of the committee had served faithfully, and that kind friend and league members had remembered the rest room, as the long list of dona tions f fresh vegetables, home-made liread. cake and pies and housefurnish Jnas attested.

That It is of value to the residents of the city and to travelers staying for a few hours on their way to other cities the many expressions and letters of warm Appreciation received by the commit tee bear witness. Miss Margaret Gerard, chairman of the school garden -committee, gave a Jnost gratifying report of the children's work there. Jn spite of the unfavor able season, many .of the children have worked faithfully. Over one-half of the plots planted -in May are still taken care of. In addition to gather ing lettuce, radishes, tomatoes and flowers, the owners of some plots have liad good crops of turnips. . Two of the children have walked nee a week from Bell Island to weed their gardens. One little six year old pill had taken care of not only, her wn plot, but of her brother, who had kmkeri his arm. Residents of the neighborhood testi fy that these school gardens have not only improved the appearance of the place, but that f hey have had a sat isfactory effect on the children them selves. That the school gardens have riot proved a failure, and, with the permission of the owners of the land will be continued next year, is the de cision of the leagtre. Widows and Securities. It is a curious fact that the accidents on steajn and trolley railroads, by which over 100 people of Indiana were killed or seriously injured in the last two weeks, have all been due to the mistakes of crews or disobedience of orders. A superficial and erroneous deduc tion from this fact would be a repeti tion of the old saw that no system can eliminate the element of human care lessness and error. For the fact is that every one of these accidents was preventable and may be referred to causes that may be corrected such s the passion for haste. Indifference to duty, lax discipline,' inadequate trackage, imoerfect or culpably weak construction. inefficient supervision, end. in a few cases, perhaps, care lessness on the ..part of those who stepped in front of moving cars. It Is the moral and economic duty of railway management, steam or trol ley, to make such slaughter Impossi ble, and Inasmuch as neither business prudence nor moral responsibility, will accomplish this unaided by fear of punishment, it Is the duty of the gov ernment, local or general, to require auch system In management and safety of construction as will reduce these murderous accidents to a minimum on pain of penalties that will chastise both person and property' with sharply ret ributive blows.

Mr.' and Mrs. Abraham Hengeveld of 6-i Holmes avenue. Waterbury, have in tin ir possession a. Bible which they are inclined to believe is of great value. Tdr. I'.tngeveld read in a. New York pi" per 'he ther (lay of a Bible owned )- a German woman in Battle Creek, Mich., ihut i.t valusd at J5.O00. The Bnttle Creek Bible is 217 years old and the ore in the Hengeveld family is ohier than this by 60 years- There isn't ii loose leaf in the Holmes avenue r.tble and every word In it is as legible as it would be had the book been pub lished jpirvicay Instead of in 1633. This avci-r.i Bible was originally owned by William Black of London, the great-grandfather of Mis. Henge veld. and it has been handed down tH.vusii s-.it i essive generations of the farj.ily. ard is now the property of Mrs Hengeveld. WillisW i Black's nam? appears in the txv!l nd there a -e many records of the fp ths and deaths in the family, written on loose sheets of paper, that, have been placed in the Bible for safe keeping. The printing of tha book was done, of course, with the old wood type, atid must have ben printed from an en graving maVJe by -hand on wood. These pictures illustrate some of the prominent characters of the Bible and each is about th size of a postage stamp. There is much detail to the picture), ' all " of ' which show very clearly, and the work of engraving must have been long and tedious. The leaf upon which these pictures appear is of tough, thick papr, mueh dif ferent from much, of the paper; that goes into books nowadays. The book was "imprinted" at: Lon don by. Robert Barker, '"printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty, and toy the Assignees of John ' Bell." and it contains an "Epistle dedieatorie." ad dressed to "The Moot High and Mightie Prince James, by the gra?e of God King of Great Britain, France and Ire land, Defender of the Faith, etc." The Bible is bound in leather, and this shows signs of considerable wear. There are brass locks-at the top and bottom, and these having become broken, Mr. Hengeveld recently had them repaired. Waterbury American. Railway Unions and Politics. If the railway men's unions, in go ing into politics. - shall adhere . faithfully- to their declared purpose of act ing Independently and of teaching their members to "cut loose from par tisan affiliations, they will not only do themselves good service, but will con tribute to the general improvement of politics. "The members of the railway unions are uncommonly intelligent men. and they should study politica.' questions and familiarize themselves with candidates, ceasing to be led by the politicians. They should, of course, avoid fall ing into the error that their interest depends wholly on legislation apply ing strictly to railroad men. For ex ample, one of the great .parties might grant the. unions all that they asked in respect to law regarding the adop tion of safety appliances, and that would be afi excellent thing, both for the railroad men and the public. At the same time, the railroad men would be poorly comoensated if they should, in order to get it. vote for candidates for president and congress who would militiarize the republic by multiplying the standing army. In other words, neither the railroad man nor any other citizen can afford to subordinate the larger interests of the. country' gov ernment to the private advantage of his vocation. Columbia (S. C) State. An Inquiry. WJiat did the 500 voters present at Mr. Chandler's speech in Torrington the other night have to eat after it was over? The Hartford. Times says "a buffet lunch."

Milford. The half day that has been promised to all the students who are neither absent nor tardy for one momii is coming near, and all are wondering if they can go through the rest of this month with a perfect attendance- The Connecticut Capitol. When the next Connecticut legisla ture comes together it will find that the beautiful white marble building in Hartford, where the laws of the state ar? made, has undergone a transfor mation which will make its interior almost unrecognizable. Not only will it wear an air of dazzling newness and a dress more in harmony with the latest standards of decorative taste, tout it will furnish more ample accommoda tion for committees and the more per manent bodies in the spate's service. The Connecticut capitol is less than forty years old. Its -admirable loca tion and its agreeable type of archi teetura have made it one of the most attractive buildings of its class in the country, with the added distinction that it was completed well within the ap propriation of three million dollars. Like Kansas, Connecticut was gov erned somewhat by state pride in the choice of - h-sr building material. Bujr, unlfke Kansas, she has not been H5Ts appointed in the result. The marble of which the capitol is constructed has well stood the test of time and the elements. A n-sw quarry in the north western part of the state waS opened for the purpose of providingjp. founda tion. - The stone was of so fine a qual ity that it was decided to continue its use clear to the lofty doma of the structure. - The changes that 'have been made are mostly of an interior character. In very few states have the forecasts of forty years ago measured the needs of the present. In our own state they have been outgrown in less than twenty-five years. The entire building i-n Connecticut has been made flranroof. or at least has conformed to the stand ard that is so designated.

The new state library building will release room in the state house for many other purposes. It is proposed that after the books are removed from tha present state library the space which H has occupied be adapted to the accommodation of the senate with more rooms for committee meetings. The supreme court will also be trans ferred to the new building, though its quartars will hardly be ready for oc cupancy at the October term. Rapid electric elevators will carry those do ing or having business at the seat of government from floor to floor in au tomobile time, and the new appoint ments are likely to stimulate the ambi tions of rural and local statesmen to a higher pitch than ever. Boston Tran script. . , Idaho Thirty Days' War. The United States has just pnded its latest war. It .has not been a com plete victory. Although over 10.000 men in the states of Idaho, Montana, and Washington have finally brought under their control the fiercest forest fires in the history of the country, the loss has been severe. Over 2,000,000. 000 feet of the finest body of white pine timber in the world has. been ruined. Including non-combatants, the dead 'svili number over 200. and scores are how-rin.g between life' and death in the HeKl hospitals that have sprung up but a short distance back of the fire line. Worst of all, ' the plagues of, sickness which .follow all wars have set upon the stricken district. The unburied dead and contaminate)! wa ter have infected the survivors, and typhoid and smalipox have come to ravage the stricken territory. It has not been a 30-years' war. but one of 30 days. In tha,t time the United States government threw nearly 600 regular soldiers into the fire-swept Coeur d'Alenes. The quickest system of conscription on rercord took 3,000 raw volunteers arid added them to the army. These were recruited, officered and commanded by United States for est ranger.

Collier's Week ly. Chancellor Day Won't Talk. Chancellor Day . of Syracuse has nothing to say. He is dumb on public affairs. He beholds the country gen erally arrayed against its great ben efactors, the trusts; he hears those good and saintly men. the Standard Oil magnates, anathematized; he sees the Sugar trust and the Meat trust prosecuted', and he knows the country is going to the dogs against his ad monitions, and he is speechless. But tuns he not w-reaked his thought upon expressions? Has he not testified to the noble and elevated and beneficent character of trusts and of the Stand ard Oil trust, especially? Has he not in unmeasured terms condemned the agitators and demagogues who stir up the people against trust prices and who thus threaten the whole social order? Has Chancellor Day not done his duty? Surely he has. And if a per verse generation will not heed his wise counsels. If it laughs at his objurga tions, if ft retorts that the Standard Oil dollar is more to the worthy chani cellor than all the public moralities, what shall he do except preserve si lence while the perverse generation that derides his counsel goes straight to the dogs?
