t is due to escaping gas or leaking
rteotrlcity, the fact is our shade trees
bn the publio streets aire being de-
troyed - and the city is at a loss as a
esult. Shade trees are useful in
hree ways. In the first plaoe they
erve to protect the macadam on the
oadway, in the second place they fur
tish shade for the pedestrian during
h warm weather and in the third
ilace they add to the beauty of the
ity. New Britain at . one time sought

rees as an obligation on property
wneTB and ' if they did not comply
vith it it was . to be mad a duty on
he city, the expense to be opaid by the
roperty owners or . to have a lien
laced on their property, but a char
sr 'oommfttee objected and the mat-
Jer ended there. The importance of
ree planting was first made apparent
Vhen the state awarded a contract
lor macadamizing a portion of East
kreet during the first year of the Lan-
lers administration when it was dis-
overed by the board of publio works
hat the document contained a pro-
Hsion for the setting out of seventy-'

Lgo when the close season for .game

kill sour birds. There is nothing more
feasant or more inspiring than .to

Huerta will salute; but how?
that is the answer to the trip
tof tne Daiuesnips to Mexico,
and if he doeB the Ameri
can guns will answer, and thus will
fend what was thought might develop
into a brush with the Mexicans. What
caused Huerta to change his mind so
huickly is said to have been advice
from some of the foreign powers, but
beople generally will be inclined to
hink that it was due more to what
might, happen at . Vera Cruz and
'ampico when the American vessels
eached there. A nice point, however.
,vill be whether in the American ves-
els answering the Huerta guns will
not be some sort of a recognition'
5f Huerta himself. It is said in Wash
ington that it' will not, and others say
Lhat the navy commander? agreed to
newer the ' Mexican salute in the
Irst place, but that Huerta would not
gree to it.
The great trouble seems to have
een. very Aeasily settled. There is no
disposition to make war on Mexico,
although there are always . some hot
Wads who appear to have a chip on
uieir shoulders . all the time, xnis
country has had experience enough
expensive and the government is in
no condition now to contract any
more war claims unless there is a
pretty strong' reason for it. The gov
ernment, however should uphold its
dignity, and it is a bit gratifying that
the order for Huerta to shoot into the
air has been backed up in such a
fashion as to make him shoot.
FTEIvD. The action of the' supreme court in
granting a new trial to Bessie Wake
field, who had " been '. sentenced o
death " for complicity in the murder
of her husband, can hardly be con
sidered, a surprise. There was a feel
ing that she would not be executed,
and a new trial is the first step in
saving her from the gallows. Her
paramour has already paid for his
participation in the crime with his
life, and he said that she was not to
blame. She" may be put to trial again
or she may plead guilty to a lesser
degree of crime that she! had been
convicted of and go to prison for a
short term, but there is no likelihood
of her ever being convicted again of
murder in the first degree. The sen
timent of the state is . too strongly
against it and there has been so much
publicity given to this feature of the
case that it is bound to have an ef
fect in the event of a new trial. She
is an. ignorant, friendless woman, and
were it' not for the sentiment created
for her because she is a. woman she
would hav been hanged the same
day as her paramour.
The feeling against capital punish
ment is constantly increasing; even
the warden of Sing Sing prison said
the other day after the gunmen had
been put to death that he hoped' that
would be the last electrocution in'that
institution. This taking of a human
life is a brutalizing affair, and bad as
it is for a man, it is more revolting
in the case of a woman. Bessie Wake
field has been in the death house at
Wethersfield for several weeks, and
it is reasonable to assume that the
warden - of - the prison, as well as the
unfortunate woman herself, was glad
to : hear the news 1 from the supreme
court. What is to be done with her
Is the next Interesting point to be de
It is in . the spring that a young

Impossible to think of the march of
General Cjoxey 'and -his army from
Ohio to Washington without a feeling
of humor. The general is an old man
as far . as years are considered, and
he has some money, so that to see
him seated! in an bid fashioned phae
ton drawn by an ancient mule, with
his wife by his side and a son ahead
riding a donkey one may well Inquire
whether the old man has not reached
that stage, when people begin to talk
funny. The army consists of sixty
soldiers, but Coxey says that it will
be increased to 20,000 by the time he
reaches Washington. The" first day's
march Was eight miles and yet the
general says he is satisfied. The army
sought food at the houses along the
line and slept in a brickyard at the
end of the first day.' The army will
be recruited along the road and the
general will receive the : hew comers
any time. ;v '
There are some who will recall the
delegation from Bristol back in 1894
which passed through here on its way
to Join Coxey, who then had another
army on the way to Washington and
who was arrested,1,, tor- tramping
around on the grass when he reached
there. The Bristol - division reached
here in the afternoon. ' It consisted) of
five men and two dogs, and as it
swung into Main street it headed for
the old band stand with Joseph R.
Johnson, then chief of police, . bring
ing up in the rear. The order, to
halt was given at the band stand and
the division came to a full stop. The
first lieutenant " started ' . to make a
speech and the chief 'interfered lest
the oration cause a riot. There was
much discontent in the crowd because
all wanted to hear an address, andl
the army was given a' great cheer
when it., resumed- its . march down
Mlain street. Such movements are
really a joke, they do not accomplish
any good and simply result in draw
ing unfortunate people through the
country, ending up with sore feet arid
a well developed grouch. .
With the desire father to the
thought some of the state's leading
democrats are spreading a story about
that there is a desire among ' certain
republican ' leaders to punish Senator
Brandegee for the attack made upon
Chairman Roraback by the members
of the reform body,' which came
such a ghastly cropper a few days ago
in its effort to secure a political millen
nium in Connecticut. It is something
that the democracy would keenly like
to see - accomplished but they are
vainly chasing a figment of .the
imagination in pursuing this will o'

Now that the city, has seen fit to
prohibit roller skating by children
on the city sidewalks," it is up to the
municipality to provide skating places
in the' parks and the playgrounds.
While it is annoying to the public
generally to have children skating on
sidewalks, particularly in the busier
sections of the city, most people have
refrained from complaining, because
they recognized the fact that the ex
ercise is beneficial, and not as danger
ous as many other childish pastimes
and sports. Waterbury Republican.

The theater is thousands . of years
old, but . the drama didn't amount to
much for centuries, and never had Its
due weight, until women were ad
mitted to participation. . The early
stage , was masculine. When they
needed a woman, they put woman's
clothing on a . man, and he did his
part in falsetto. The Chinese do
that today. The Chinese think the
feminine voice the more beautiful,
but .they have men imitate the voice
of woman, and the result is not beau
tiful at all. The history of woman
and the stage is the history of wom
an, and many . other things. There
many who believe that an all
masculine state is as defective as a
drama acted by men only. Bridge

in a time when the talents of both
sexes are contributed , to the stage.

Tale of Chicago and Boston.
(Chicago Record-Herald.)
Jonah, Martin B., came to Chicago
yesterday. Two Pinkerton detectives
played the role- of the whale.
This is the revised story of Jonah
as writ in the, Book of Policefans.
. It came to' pass that there was in
the wicked city, which is Chicago, one
Martin B. Jonah. In Jonah's pockets,
of shekels there was none.
' One, day Jonah betook himself into
the Park of Lincoln, which is by the
waters of the Lake of Michigan. Gen
tlemen and ladies of high station
passed by and saw him not. They
passed him afoot and. in the carriages
which ;are: horsjeless.. ; . .; ; . ;?tv-
Jonah " looked , . upon " thec ' wealth
which .was . not his. Then ', he .saith
with disgust: "Verily am I a boob.
Superabundant shekels have they who
pass. me by, while I, accursed one, am
bereft of all things. Why is this thus?
Am I my brother's keeper , who can
not keep myself? Verily the Lord
helpeth those who help themselves."
Then up spake conscience: "The
way of the transgressor is paved with
rocks. Go thou, brother and turn
thy hand to honest work."
. Then up rose' Jonah and smote con
science. Shaking his legs, he be
took himself straightway to the Mld
City Trust and Savings Bank, which
is by the parting of the ways of Madi
son and Halsted streets.
. To the chief counter of shekels he
spoke after this manner: "I have
here a check for $730. Please cash
And lo,, it was done. And it came
to pass that a few days later the man
whose name was writ upon the check
became exceeding wrathful. He be
got an idea. Forthwith he took it to
the tribe of Plnkertons.
. Much hunting was made for Jonah.
At last he was discovered in the City
of Boston, which, the prophets saith,
is in a foreign land and rests upon
a hill made of the writings of one
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Thence Jonah was returned to
Chicago, which is by the lake. And
when the prison with its bars had
closed upon him he repented of his
wickedness and saith: "Wherefore,
oh wherefore, did I smite conscience
when it whispered?"
Jonah was bound over to the grand
jury. Verily the way of the trans
gressor is hard!
