TaftriUe people were interested In the

the purpose of abolishing the grade cross
ing. The council chamber was filled with
persons interested in the project and at
torneys representing the city and towns
of Norwich and the New Haven railroad,
fi Wan-Mi Davis stated that as the
ittee was not a permanent one and
that . the matter couid not De seitieu
Tuesday it would be advisable to make
the committee permanent with power to
fill vacancies-and this-was voted.
Commissioner Elweil then' opened the
hearing. It was announced that Corpora
tion Counsel William H. Shields,- Jr.,
would represent the city and petitioners,
and Town Counsel H. H. Pettis the town.
The first man called by Attorney

that crossing .while driving a team, and
later an automobile. He considered the-
crossing a dangerous one.
Dr. E. J. Brophy, :old' of attending
Frank Osborn who 4was struck by a
train about, two. years ago, and told of
the action taken by the 'Norwich Medi
cal society Monday ) night favoring the
abolishing of this crossing which was con
sidered the most dangerous in this vi
cinity. G. Warren Davis told of trouble that
horse drawn vehicles as 'Well as motor
vehicles experienced at the crossing, and
how hard it was to hold back heavy loads
on the 14 per cent, grade. He also spoke
of the danger to school children, and said
fc4 i that drivers of chicles now refused to
pass over the crossing but entered trreston
by way of Hamilton avenue, a longer and
less pleasing drive.
..Attorney Buckingham for the railroad
asked Mr. Davis what 1 the petitioners
wanted, and Mr. Davis said a flagman,
24 hours a day, and ultimately an over
head bridge: ,

Churches all over the state are making
prompt response to the - Christmas ap
peal of ex-Governor Marcus. H. Holcomb,
honorary state chairman of the Near East
relief, in behalf of the 115,000 orpnan

small, however, and the total of all re

Special collections are to be taken ror

Everything possible is being done to
relieve the suffering of the orphan chil

according to information received indi

for the recent massacres, by the Turks,
which added to the thousands of parent
less and homeless children, a the Near
East Relief expected to be able to protect
all the orphans, but the numbers of the
destitute have been multiplied by the most
recent Turkish outrages and it is , with
difficulty that enough . accommodations
are being found.
Many different Christian agencies are
co-operating in the humanitarian task of
saving the children. The. last cable from
abroad brought the news that the monas
teries of Mt. Athos In Greece have been
khrawn open to receive 3,000 shelterless
