The weather continnes to pass for spring

running, the birds are singing and the "grass
is a growin'," and still the boys are not happy.

over. Some - of his leading friends in the
church favored it, but the project was aban
doned, in view of the impression that Mr.
Hayden would not favor it. The news of the
jury's finding revived vigorously the discus
sion of the case in Rockland and South Mad

The Reception tfi Parnell. V"
Completing the Arrsreiiienl Mayor
. Blsjelow to Preside Rev. Dr. Bacon to
Deliver too Address of Welcome.
This evening there will be a meeting in
Clan-na-Gael Hall for the purpose of complet
ing arrangements for the reception of Parnell
and Dillon at the Grand Opera House on
Thursday evening next. It is definitely known
that the Sarsfleld and Emmet Guards will turn
out, and in addition to the military there will
be fifteen temperance and benevolent societies
that wfll take part in the parade. - The Oily
band has offered its services and has been ac
cepted. It is also said that the Wilkins
Guard of the Independent battalion have sig
nified their Intention to parade. As this is the
only city in the State that Parnell will be able
to visit, it is expected that there will be dele
gations present from Hartford, Middletown,
New Britain, Meriden, New London, Norwioh,
Bridgeport, Waterbury, Naugatuok, Ansonia,
Birmingham, Fairfield, Danbury, Southing
ton and Oollinsville. The New Haven and
Derhv road are to run a special train to ac
commodate those who desire to attend
from the Naugatuok valley at reduced rates.
The tickets for the Grand Opera House re
eention are selline rapidly, and the oommittee
are anxious that those intending to be present
should purchase their tickets at once, so that
they may secure Loomis' Temple or the
Atheneum .for an overflow meeting should
thav find it necessarv. Should this be the
case and two meetings should be held at the
same time, Parnell will first address the
Grand ODera House meeting, while Dillon
will soeak at the overflow meeting, after
which thev will exchange places. Other well-
known and able speakers will take part at
each meeting. His Honor Mayor Bigeiow
will preside at the Grand Opera House and
Rev. Dr. Bacon will deliver the address of
WAlcome.
It is exDeoted that the Elliott House will be
the headquarters of the distinguished agita
tors during their stay in the city, and should
they arrive in the afternoon the societies will
escort them from there to the Grand Opera
House, and if thev arrive in the evening they
will be escorted direct to the hall from the
depot. Invitations have been sent to many
of the most prominent citizens in this and
other oities in the State to act as vice presi
dents of the meeting.
Westvllle.
The monthly oonoert of the Sabbath school
of the M. E. churoh, in WestvOle, is always
an occasion of interest, and calls out a large
audience. An earnest and appropriate address
by Charles A. Baldwin, Esq., of this city, was
the principal feature of last evening's exerci
ses. Th9 singing of the children was "with
spirit and understanding."
Probably Fatal rail.
On Saturday night, Jacob Wilier, employed
by Baker Yost, of West Meriden, in going
from Siering's baker shop, fell down a flight
of stairs. He "was badly hurt and bruised
about the head and neck, and is thought to be
internally injured. Heart disease increases
the seriousness of the case. He was taken to
his residence on Grove street.
JUiddletown Avenue Chapel.
The new Baptist chapel on Middletown
avenue, formerly the chapel of the First Con
gregational church, Fair Haven, is rapidly
being made ready for servioes. It stands on
gronnd leased of Mr. Donnelly for a term of
years, and in front of the ancient house where
the mission has held services for several years
past. The new building will afford sufficient
room for the services, the old place of meeting

Great Sale of Dry Goods.
F. & L. Lyons have commenced their great
sale of dry and fancy goods. Their entire
stock of $50,000 worth of standard goods is
thrown upon .the market at a great sacrifice.
This is a bona fide sale, and a rare chance
for bargains which the publio will avail them
selves of to a large extent. The firm are
making this sale preparatory to takin g a new
store and the prices are marked way down.
The ladies and all interested will find by a look
at the firm's advertisement, in another col
umn, that an unusual chancs is offered.
The Training? School for Nurse.
To the Editor of (As J ocBirAi. ahd Cousixn :
Through some misunderstanding, the con
dition of the finances of this institution was
not clearly stated in the otherwise excellent
report made by the Cotjbikb. The fact is that
during the year the .managers were obliged to
trespass upon their reserved funds, to the ex
tent of 3158 in order to meet current ex
penses. The school has a small amount in
vested, which brings in a few hundred dollars
yearly, but the expenses yearly are more than
$2,000 for salaries, uniforms, books, etc.
etc., and unless subscriptions and donations
can be secured, the small investment must be
reduced to obtain ready money for weekly
payments, a necessity wnion would be
great misfortune to the school.

That Hartford Gathering.
Ibe Connecticut Commercial Travel
ers' Association Dull Care Dispensed
With. - -
To the Editor of the Jotbkax, aks Counixn:
The annual meeting and winter supper of
the Connecticut Commercial Travelers' Asso
ciation was held Thursday evening, January
22, at the United States Hotel, Hartford.
Thinking that many of your readers in New
Haven and elsewhere will be interested in a
full account of the gathering, we have taken
some pains in a few. moments snatched be
tween train times to get together the following
items, which we submit with best wishes :
The business meeting was called to order by
the president, Frank Cowles, of Hartford, at
7:80 p. m., and after the transaction of the
ordinary routine business a design for an as
sociation pin, consisting of a gold order book
and pencil, was adopted. The executive com
mittee reported 17 new names since the last
meeting. A committee of seven A. Howard
Abbe, or uartrora, being chairman was ap
pointed to select time and place for summer
meeting.
These matters being finished, the associa
tion proceeded to the election of officers, with
the following result : Frank Cowles, of Hart
ford, president ; Eugene O. Hill, New Haven,
secretary ; vice presidents, George Oomstock,
Bridgeport; O. H. Tompkins, Norwalk; Ralph
S. Miner, New Haven; N. H. Ames, New
London ; William B. Young, Norwioh ; John
H. Marsh, Hartford; William B. Stevens,
Willimantio ; Frank C. Bushneil, New Haven.
The former treasurer, O. G. Beokwith, of
New London, having changed his business,
felt oompelled to decline a re-eleotion and
Charles T. Ward, of New Haven, was eleoted
treasurer in his place. At 8:30 p. m. the bus
iness meeting closed, and nearly 100 commer
cial travelers, who had been swarming into
the oity during the afternoon and evening,
mingled together for an hour in pleasant con
dition,living over again the excitement of for
mer meetings or recounting a few of the num
berless experiences, either pleasant or oomical,
that filled the pages of their memory, and had
served from time to time to break the monot
ony of samples or smooth down the asperi
ties of sharp competition, or render sunny the
incidents of sume cloudy day ; and many
times the hearty laugh or the cordial greeting
rang out loud and clear as some new comer
arrived to increase the group. A pleasing
feature of the occasion was the fact that many
faces new to the gatherings were noticed.
Among them were notioed W. H. Clarke with
0. G. Kimberly, L. D. Chidsey of Stone &
Ohidsey, W. J. Bradley of the Singer Sewing
Machine Co., J. D. DeweU of New Haven, J.
D. Hunt of Brooklyn, A. K. Folman, presi
dent, and M. B. Cole, vice president of the N.
E. Commercial Travelers' Association of Bos
ton, S. E. Haskel with J. G. Lane and W. H.
Haling with C. S. Brewer of Hartford, Mr.
Baldwin with L Hawley of Bridgeport. Also
to assist in the entertainment were Mr. Nor
man Spenoer with W. Boardman and son and
Prof. K. O. Phelps of Hartford, and the Grays'
Glee Club of New Haven, consisting of S. H.
Reed. Henry K. Beach. James A. Howarth
and Frank T. Lee.
At 9:30 the call to the tables was sounded,
and quickly the line of march was taken to
the dining hall of mine host Rood, where
were found tables set for one hundred, guests
in a manner fit for a king. A very neat fea
ture of the occasion were the finely litho
graphed menus at each plate. All being seated,
order was called, when an invocation was
made by Vice President Miner, of New Ha
ven, after whioh all fell to the duty of the
evening with a will and earnestness only
equaled when some of them had been called
upon to attack some very obdurate customer.
Supper over, musio and speeoh-making were
in order. First came music by the Glee Club.
A fine Stock piano had been kindly furnished
for the occasion by Miss Dewey, the local
agent for Steck in Hartford. President Cowles
called first on Commodore Tompkins, who
responded in a short, pithy speech, well sup
plied with good advice to the fraternity.
Vice President Miner followed, refer
ring to some of the hardships as well as
pleasures connected with the business, and be
fore closing very touohingly and fitly alluded
to the death of Selah W. Strong, late with 8.
E. Merwin & Son, one of the original mem
bers,and the only death as yet in the ranks.
Norman Spenoer then rendered a fine vocal
selection, R. O. Phelps accompanying.
Secretary Hill read letters from several
members and others who were unable to be
present. Some of these letters, especially
one from F. M. Lewis, of New Haven, con
tained some sharp hits, whioh were well re
ceived and appreciated by those oonversant
with the attendant circumstances.
O. T. Ward, in a few well timed words,
presented to -Vice President Tompkins a Greek
dictionary, the inscription in the same read
ing : "Presented to Commodore Tompkins
by members of the O. C. T. A. as a token of
their appreciation of his earnest efforts to cul
tivate the use of a higher standard of language
among the fraternity." It is needless to say
that the Commodore, though taken wholly by
surprise, was fully adequate to the occasion.
President Folman and Vioe President Cole
of Boston spoke cheering words and men
tioned the mutual benefit feature of the asso
ciation. Frank O. Bushneil being' called for
responded with remarks filled with sharp hits
on bis personal friends, who must look well
to their walk and conversation in the future.
J. D. Hunt, of Brooklyn, related scraps of
interesting personal history in his early com
mercial traveling,' which was on board a whale
ship with a one hundred and nineteenth share
in proceeds as pay.
John Overand, the poet of the evening,
described in a parody on Poe's Raven how
Brother Fredus Ladd, who was present and
supposed to be always good natured, finally
aisposea or one oi ine drummer Dores.
ty far tne best part of the evening s en
tertainment was at the oloso, when James D.
Dewell, Esq., of New Haven, after some re
marss oi a historical nature regarding com
mercial traveling, turned to the president and
in a few well chosen and put words expressed
to Mr. Cowles the love of the members, and as
a token of that love and respect. on behalf of
the association, presented him with an elegant
gold headed cane. Mr. Cowles wss taken
most completely by surprise. He. however.
responded in a few fitting words, after which
witn cheers for tne president, mine host Rood.

betook themselves to other quarters, though
quite a delegation remained till morning.
x&Ken all in all the winter supper of Jan. 22.

ment in interest over any previous one. Too
muoh cannot be said in praise of the commit
tee of Hartford gentlemen-who so successful
ly arranged alt matters oonneoted therewith.
Police Commissioners.
A special meeting of the Board of Police
Commissioners was held on Saturday evening.
Present, Commissioners Smith (presiding),
Gallagher, Wooster, Basserman and Gilbert.
There were also present the newly appointed
Commissioners, W. J. Atwater and Frank H.
Hooker ; also, His Honor Mayor Bigeiow.
The principal object of the meeting was to
introduce the new Commissioners, and to fi
nally adjourn the old board. Before
final adjournment Commissioner Smith spoke
in behalf of Commissioner Wooster and him.
self, saying that they had been associated with
each other as members of the Board of Police
Commissioners for the past five years and four
months, many chances bad occurred within
that time, and there had been many pleasant
as weii as some unpieasam duties to perform,
but he believed they had studied the best in
terests of the city by their actions. He
thought the present force was never in better
oonoution than at the present time. ,For bis
part, he was pleased that the Mayor had made
such good selections in the appointment of
successors to Jur. wooster and himself.
Police Notes.
On Saturday morning Chief Webster i
rested Benjamin Brainard, of Middletown,
who was formerly in the employ of Loren H.
Plumb, of that place. On Tuesday night last,
while Plumb and his family were away from
home, Brainard stole a gold watch, $50 in
money, a revolver and a suit of clothes, and
departed. A description of the thief was sent
him, which resulted in his arrest. He had
been to New York on a spree and came back
on the steamboat on Saturday morning. He
had disposed of the stolen property. The
thief was taken to Middletown on Saturday
afternoon.
About half-past 11 o'clock last night the
polioe made a raid on Edwin A. Baboook's
saloon on Court street and captured eight men
and four women besides the proprietor. The
charges against Babcock are for "keeping a
house of assignation" and violation of the Sun
day license law. The charges against the others
are for frequenting a house of assignation.
Aa Old Wetnersfield Convict Wanted.
Steams E. Abbott, an old Wethersfleld oon-
viot, is wanted on a charge of the murder of
Mrs. Joseph Crue, at Groton, Mass. The po
lios of Boston claim to have settled down upon
him as the man who committed the deed.
They have a picture of him. He was long an
inmate of Wethersfleld prison. Previously
when a young man he served a term in
Charlestown, Mass., prison. Soon after bis
release he made his way to New Hampshire,
where he again got into trouble and was
sent to the Conoord State prison. - There
he remained till 1864, when he was
pardoned ont on condition that he
would enlist in the army.". He was sent to
the New Haven camp, whence he deserted,
and shortly after he stole a mail bag, which he
rifled of its contents. In one of the letters
he found a check, on which he forged an en
dorsement to obtain the money. For these
offenses he was, sentenced to Wethersfleld
for two years by the United States Court for
robbing the .mail, and three years by the
State for forgery. He was discharged at
Wethersfield, September 28, 1868, having
gained a considerable commutation for good
behavior. ' -
The Kiddie Case. -
She
and
Arsenic Xtae
t New London
Patent Medicine and
Theory of tne Defense
to be Stirred Up.
The case of William B. Riddle, of Norwich,
who is accused of murdering his wife by the
favorite arsenio method, will come before the
grand jury at the opening of the January ses
sion of the Superior Court in New London to
morrow. If the grand jury find a true bill, it
is understood that the trial will be proceeded
with at some time during the January term.
The case promises to be one of muoh in
terest, though it can scarcely attract the pub
lio attention to snoh a degree as did the Hay
den trial.
The line of defense will be a somewhat
novel one, as it is understood that the claim
will be made that the arsenic found in the
stomach of the deceased woman can be satis
factorily accounted for by reason of the quan
tities of patent medicines that she took during
the years immediately preceding her death.
If this defense is set up some of the popular
patent medicines of the day will be placed on
trial as well as the accused party.
It may safely be predioted that the proseou-
tion in this case will not weary the jury with
a mass of expert testimony which they cannot
understand without having previously gradu
ated at a medical college. In fact, the neces
sity which existed in the Hayden case for the
introduction of expert testimony as to the dif
ferent varieties of arsenic is wanting in the
Riddle case. The only questions that will
arise in connection with arsenio are whether
the quantity found in the remains of the de
ceased was sufficient to produce death, wheth
er it came there through the agency of patent
medicines or was administered directly, and
whether the accused party administered it.
The trial will not probably occupy more than
three weeks.
The prosecution will be oonduoted by State
Attorney Waller and the defense by Daniel
Chadwick, of Lyme.

that is, a heavenly." The speaker held the
undivided attention of his audience during the
delivery of his sermon, whioh was one of his
best efforts.
At St Paul's church last evening the pastor
Bev. Mr. liines, preached a preparatory ser
mon for Lent, an earnest discourse full of
praotical truths and wise oounsel.
The Third Congregational church was
crowded to exoess last evening. The pastor,
Rev. Dr. Dennen, repeated his discourse on
the power and influence of musio, and some
very fine music was given by the choir.
At Calvary Baptist Sunday school a deep
religious interest prevails, akin to that shown
there some time ago. Twenty children rose
for prayers yesterday.
At Dwight Place church yesterday the pas
tor preached a fine discourse, in which he
inonloated the lesson that Christianity was to
be judged by its fruits, and not by occasional
cases of departure from the truth by men
who had fallen into evil example. The vocal
and instrumental musio is a great source of
pleasure to the large congregation in attend
ance, and the church is fortunate in having
such an organist and director as Prof. Wehner,
Last evening Miss Fannie Howe sang a solo
at St. Mary's church with fine effect.
Rev. I. O. Meserve, of Davenport church,
preaohed to a full audience in the morning
yesterday from Romans 12, 21 : "Be not over-
come with evil, but overcome evil with good."
Be not overcome in spirit or practioe. Certain
kinds of soldiers are good for oertain kinds of
duty. Raw reoruits sent to the front to re
connoitre the enemy are vanquished when the
outworks are taken, and only the tried vet
erans stand firm when the battle is hottest.
Some Christians, when the six days of Gene
sis, in which the world was said to have been
made, were proven by scientists to be periods
instead of days, thonght the whole Bible
was gone. The theory of evolution
now being discussed, but not yet
proven, making man a descendant of the mon
key, admitting it to be true, this nor all the
discoveries of science can ever capture
single outpost of that citadel of truth center
ing in Jesus Christ the Saviour and Redeemer
of men.
Some things cannot be proven. We cannot
prove that God exists, but all proof we have
on tne subject is on tne side or his existence ;
then faith com6S in anaman.es this proof posi
tive to every Christian mind. East Rock may
be enveloped in mist, but nevertheless it is not
gone. So with this great fact of the existence
of God. Science or skepticism may fSr a time
envelop this great fact in a mist of doubt.
but when the miBt shall dear away, which it
surely will, then it shall be plain to all. Some
say they believe in God, but the question is,
is He my God. Yes, He is your God, and
trust and hold on to the fact. Form the
principle of - resisting evil instantly. The
Puritan consciences were clear. They obeyed
their leadings instantly and laid foundations
for an institution whioh will last for all time.
Evil comes in three forms. Assaulting evil
comes like the waves against the coast. At
Savin Rock the slight waves ooming over the
harbor wear away tne sandy beach, even en.
oroaching on the road, but the rocks of Co
hasset stand firm where the fury of the
storm-beaten ocean has beaten against them
for centuries. Christians must stand like
rock planted upon a rock against the tide of
evil, however it comes. Sometimes assault
must be met by assault, sometimes in silence
and sometimes by passive resistance. An odd
sexton in my first churoh, in a country parish
where they always had quarrels, said that if
when some threw fire at others the others
would throw water in return, the trouble
would soon end and the fire be quenched, and
so sometimes we are merely to throw
water on evil. Enslaving evil was met by
Christ when He came down from Heaven
to save souls, and must always be
met in a tender and trustful spirit. The
dearer and simpler the faith the better. Im
pending evil must be met in a spirit of watch
fulness. Watch and pray. Impending evil is
over our homes and the land. The year 1S50,
ushering another presidential election.
will be one of the most important
in its results of any in our country's
history, fraught with the gravest con
sequence oi evil or good. After the .British
attack on the patriots at Fort Griswold, New
London, in 1874, ' they laid a train of powder
rrom tne ion to tne ooast wnere their vessels
were moored, expecting by this means to blow
up the fort and all the patriots remaining in it.
Two wounded patriots who had been left for
dead, seeing the train of powder, proposed to
crawl to the train and wet it with their blood.
They started ; one died on the way, the other
reached the spot and died there. The fire
burned to his dead body, but not beyond.
Thus his blood saved the fort and his comrades
in it. There is patriotism for you, and shall
the patriot outdo the Christian. Every Chris
tian must stand firm as a rock against the tide
of evil, and when the tempter would capture
the oitadel be willing to pour out his life's
blood for the cause of God. The audience
listened with rapt attention throughout the
whole sermon. In the evening Mr. Meserve
made a powerful appeal against intemperance.

City Court Notes.
In the Oity Court on Saturday morning the cast
against Moses Mann, James B. Bogers and Gerhard
Imcken came up by oontinnance. Their counte!, ex-
Judge Blydenburgh, moved that the cases be erased
from the docket on the gronnd of informalities in the
indictments. This was overruled. Tha parties were
then asked to plead to the information, but declined to
do so by advice of their oounsel. The case against
Mann was then commenced. The principal witness
for the State was Jndaon T. Ewing, who testified
visiting Mann's place and seeing a blackboard with
numbers on it, and also saw what he supposed were
policy slips. William Gibson gave similar testimony.
After hearing the testimony and arguments Judge
Pardee deffrred his dectsioa and continued the cates
to January 31.

An Important Will Cose.
The Horton will oaie, which is to be tried in the Su
perior Court at Hartford soon, involves a large estate,
valued, probably, at $100,000 or more. The testator
was Eli Horton, of Windsor Locks, of the well know
church manufacturing conoern. Mr. Horton died of
softening of the brain in December, 1878, aged 76
years. In January, 1876, he made his will in which he
gave to Mrs.Loranda Swe:tland, wife of William
Sweetland, an employe in the factory, $2,C00 ; to each
of his two daughters, no other children surviving,
$5,000 ; and all the residue of the estate was left in
trust to John B. Windsor and William L. Sweetland,
who were alfo executors under the will. ' The use of
of this portion was to be divided as follows : One
third each to the two daughters, ani one-third
to grandchildren, who were the children of the
testator's deceased son. The most of the estate is the
stock of the . Horton & Son Company, -which em
braces also a considerable portion of the estate of the
deceased son. The entire control and management
waB ieit to tne trustees ana executors, tne will provid
ing that they cannot sell the stock in the company un
less the whole of it is sold, and that so Ions- as it re.
mains unsold one of the trustees and executors, Mr.
Sweetlsnd, "shall be superintendent of the manufac
tory." There is a provision also that no bonds shall
be signed by either of the executors or trustees, a par
ticular reason being given in the case of Sweetland
which will be disclosed upon the trial in the language
of the will. There were two codicils to the will, the
last one having been drawn up about two months be-
ioro ne testator's aeatn. ine nrst one reauoes tne
legacies of the daughters from $5,000 to $1,000, snd the
last one gives to Mr. and Mrs. rtweetland the use of a
gangway and barn standing on thd Horton homestead
so long as Bweetland remains -superintendent of the
manufactory.
- The appellants are the children and the grandchil
dren of the testator, Mr. Bailey, in whose name the
appear taen, oeing tne nasoana oi one or tne
daughters. Tne claim they make is that Mr. Horton,
both before and at the time of his death, was extremelv
broken, bodily and mentally, and that the will was ob
tained by undue and improper influences brought

A Supreme Court Decision.
ine supreme uourt of nrrora has decided the case
of T. Fitch against S. Jt ffr jy. This is an action
debt on an oil judgment, and was first argued befcre
Judge Park, in the Superior Court, and was by him
referred to the Supreme Court in the spring of 1879.
Decision was rendered Thursday. In 1866 the plain-
tiff brought suit against the defendant upon a c'aim
based upon an alleged loss in the sale of a vessel. The
defendant did not appear and the plaintiff was given
judgment in the sum of $2,000 by default. The j odg
ment was never satisfied, and last year the plaintiff
bronght an action of debt on the judgment and at
tached the property of defendant. The matter has
since been before the courts. The property on which
the execution rests is the brick block now in part oc
cupied by the defendant as a store on Bank street.
There are conflicting reports as to the cature of the
aaaudon. It was stated this morning by one of the
counsel in the case that it w as for the plaintiff, Fitch,
but a telegram received at a late hour this afternoon
says the judgment is for Jeffrey. New London Tele
