They rejected the applica . tions of H. C. Rowe and H. E. Billard, both of whom had asked for designations of six ores of oyster ground lying southeasterly of the breakwater. Mr. Rowe's application covered the ground that was so long a sub ject of litigation between himself and C. L. Luddington, and Mr. Billard's application was for a tract adjoining. The former tract has long been claimed and cultivated by Mr. Luddington under an old designation. The case went to the Superior court, and thence to the Supreme courtby appeal. The decis ion of the latter court did not pass directly upon the question of the ownership between the contesting parties. Deeds were issued as follows: John H. Monsell, 538 acres in Norwalk; Samuel B. Lockwood, 93 acres in Fairfield; William Godfrey, 43 acres in Norwalk; Mollie E. White, 20 acres in Norwalk.

DEATH OF A. HVBDEREB. Be Dies In the Retreat for Insane at Middletown. John Andersen, the Swede who about ten years ago killed Horatio Hall in the Walling ford Wheel Bhop, has finally succumbed to the " King of Terrors." He died in the insane retreat at Middletown yesterday and the State is rid of an ugly customer. It will be remembered that he held imaginary wrongs against some of the workmen in the shop and leaving this city where he lived, one morning, he went to Wallingford carrying in his pocket a loaded revolver. Alighting at the depot he crossed the track and entering the shop commenced an indiscriminate firing upon the workmen, and one of the shots took effect on Horatio Hall, who died soon after. Andersen was arrested, tried for murder and on the first trial he was found guilty of murder in the first degree and sentenced to be hung. Then his counsel, who was K. fc. Pickett, petitioned for a new trial, which was granted. On the second trial Anderson was found guilty of murder in the second degree, and sentenced to State prison for life. The court ordered his confinement in btate prison during its pleasure. He was sent to Wethers field and a few years after his confinement the Legislature passed a law requiring that all insane State prisoners should be removed to the insane retreat at Middletown. Ander sen was one of the number who was sent there and soon after he escaped. He was tracked to JNew Jersey and taken back to Middletown, where a close watch was kept upon his movements. The ques tion of his insanity, especially at the time of the killing, has always been a mooted one. IWASONIC BENEFITS. Various Benefits Voted Last Night The Work For the Past Six Months.

Welch, New Haven; William E. Downes, Derby; Jonathan Ingersoll, clerk of the Superior court, and Robert O. Gates, sheriff. Each town in the county through its Selectmen sends annually to the clerk of the court a list of double the number of jurors to which they are entitled and from the names so sent one-half are selected. This year the towns of Guilford, Prospect and Seymour did not send in their lists in time, hence these towns will be un represented in the list of Superior and Com mon Pleas jurors for the next year. This will make a deficiency of fifty-eight jurors, but there will still be a sufficient number remain ing for all purposes of the courts.

Albert Nash, Bridgeport, was damaged $150 worth lightning Saturday night. BARBARA GAUGEL'S THEFTS. Her Case Again Continued The Authorities Unable to Prove Any thing Reyond the Girl's Admissions. The case of Barbara Gaugel, who was ar rested for stealing from the New Haven Ruf fle company some time ago, seems to be puz zling the City court officials. Barbara is seventeen years old, and was a clerk of the Ruffle company's. She was detected making false returns for sales and considerable quan tities of laces were found at her house. The latter she claimed to have bought. When the case came up in the court yesterday morning, Mr. Sweezy, the proprietor of the Ruffle company, had it announced to the court that he did not wish to prosecute the young girl, it being understood that he felt that he was partially to blame for the only thefts that had been proven against her. The only charge against her was for stealing about $7 worth of goods. The evidence in that case had been heard and judgment had been with held. Judge Studley had in the meantime made several efforts to see Mr. Doolittle to advise with him on the most judicious way of disposing of the case of the pretty and bright but peccant clerk. He could not find the attorney at leisure and was obliged to again postpone the case yesterday to July 31st. A quantity of laces was placed on the table in the center of the patrolmen's head quarters yesterday ana Miss Minnie uaugel, in the presence of her father and sister .Bar bara and Lawyer Pickett and Mr. Sweezy, picked out three-fourths of the laces as her own or her mother s property.

A distinguished citizen referring to a com munication in yesterday's issue berating the West Haven Horse Railroad company says : '"Why blame the railroad company ? It is not the railroad company's business to repair the public roads. It's certainly asking a lit tle too much to expect railroad companies to repair the highways. The fact is that the cars can't run any further than Kelsey's wharf because the roadway is so badly washed away, owing to the violent demon strations of old ocean, and it belongs to the town, of course, to repair its roads. Wasn't that a funny decision of the county commissioners their decision that as far as they could learn Beach street, between Kel sey's wharf and the Rock, was not a public highway. Why, it looks preposterous to people, such a decision as that with regard to a public road like this one in question that has been used tor years and over which so many hundreds of private and public car riages pass every summer. The writer of that article should have asked why don't the town or Urange repair the highways !" F. D. Morgan and family, of Picquav, O., are "camping out" near Savin Rock hill on Beach street. Mr. J. S. Markhain and family, of South ington, and Mr. E. G. Lee and son, of New Britain, are sojourning at the Mansion House. The Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor connected with the M. E. church are talking strongly of making an excursion to Glen Island on the steamer Starin the 5th of August. Every cottage in Oriental Park is occupied. It is one of the most popular places on the shore for cottages. C. S. Maltby returned last week from long cruise in his yacht Bena. He started for New York yesterday morning on another trip. He spends a good deal of his time in the summer season on his yacht. State Attorney Tilton E. Doolittle will in a tew days remove to his shore residence on Beach street for the season. The Band Concert Postponed. Owing to a misunderstanding in regard to the lights the concert to be given on the Green last evening under the auspices of the Thespian club was postponed until this evening. The club with their friends leave Belle dock on the Elm City to-morrow morn ing at 8 o'clock for Coney Island, and from the advance sale of tickets the party will be unusually large and select. The Thespians have since their organization given a number of entertainments for the public patronage, and their excellent management has made this patronage larger on each recurring occa sion. If this their first annual excursion is but half as well conducted and the enter prise of the members has been largely devot ed to its preliminary arrangements it wil be one of the best and most enjoyable excur sions leaving New Haven this season. There is no doubt that to-morrow will be another red letter day in the already brilliant history of the Thespian club. Personal. . Dr. G. F. Servis, of Stratford, a graduate of the Yale Medical college this year, has been appointed assistant house surgeon at the State hospital. Mr. G. S. Wright, of this city, of the same class, has been appoint ed assistant physician at the Hartford Insane retreat: Patrick Ploeger, the saloon keeper, was ar raigned before the City court yesterday morn ing for an assault upon Otto Kraut in Joseph Gander's saloon a few days ago. A man named Libri, who was with Kraut, called Ploeger a low Dutchman, and repeated it several times. They were about coming to blows when Kraut stepped between them and was struck with a beer glass by Ploeger in the forehead. Judge Studley allowed the accused to settle the case on payment of the costs, which amounted to $7.38. Mr. John Edgell, formerly connected with Beach & Co., died at New York Friday from apoplexy. His funeral occurred yesterday afternoon from the residence of Mr. Stephen Terry in Hartford. Mr. Herman F. Klinger, the instructor in German at the Brown school, Hartford, died Sunday at the age of 50 years and 6 months. Mr. Wm. Parsons has resumed editorial connection with the Hartford Telegram.

Y. je30mwf&2w IIIIDDLETOWN'S CENTENNIAL. A Grand Demonstration Loomls Zou aves, of New Haven Interesting Exercises Address By Lieutenant Governor Sumner. The centennial celebration of the founding of the city of Middletown occurred yesterday. The weather was extremely fine, and a cool breeze fanned the faces of the men as they marched through the beautiful streets. The sidewalks were lined by ten thousand people from the town and the surrounding country. The best of order characterized the crowd, and everybody seemed bound to enjoy the event as much as possible. The decorations were quite elaborate, and the stars and stripes were seen floating on all the main thoroughfares of the "Forest City." The military display was quite limited. The procession was made up of local organizations and a fine display of the trades. The pro cession passed through the central portion of the town and called forth liberal applause from the sight-seers. Colonel Graham and BtafE were mounted and at the head of the column. Following came the Mansfield Guard, Co. H, Second regiment, and their guests, the Loomis Zouaves (light Guard), of this city, with the American band. The company were the central attraction for all eyes, especially the maidens. They acquitted themselves nobly and won fresh laurels for their fine marching and soldierly deport ment. Their uniforms were quite novel and many a farmer was heard to exclaim, "What do those fellows represent?" The Spring field Uniformed Degree camp marched in the shape of a cross and performed some of their fancy movements. The second divis ion was composed of temperance organiza tions. In the third division were the various hose and fire engine companies as well as the old hand engine "Torrent," of Norwich, at least one hundred years old. A bucket com pany of young men displayed the manner of fighting fire in "ye olden time." " The "Bread Winners," an organization composed of Middletown's leading young men, one hundred strong, was the feature of the fourth division. The trades and antiques made up the fifth branch of the grand pageant. The idea was evident ly taken from Mayor Lewis and was a success in every sense of the word. All the trades of the city were well represented and the wagons very showy. In the evening a display of fireworks was made. The pieces were made for the celebration by Hadfield & Bidwell, local manufacturers. Among the guests were: Lieutenant Gov ernor Sumner, Hon. Alfred R. Goodrich, State Treasurer; Hon. Frank D. Sloat, State Comptroller; Hon. D. Ward Northrop, mayor of Middletown; Hon. Henry G. Lewis, mayor of New Haven; Hon. Morgan U. numeiey, mayor of Hartford; Hon. V. . IN. Morgan, mayor of Bridgeport; Hon. E. J. Doolittle, mayor of Meriden; Hon. J. Andrew Pickett, mavor of New Britain: Hon. George E. Starr, mavor of New London: Hon Henry A. Mat thews, mayor of Waterbury, and Hon Samuel L. Warner, orator of the day; ex- Gov. Caleb B. Bowers, Chief Engineer A. G, Hendrick and Assistant Engineer Hubbard. The two firemen were the guests of Chief Engineer Willey. Gov. Waller was unable to be present. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, following a dress parade by the military and civic bodies in front of the court house, came the public exercises in the North Congregational church. The handsome edifice was packed to over flowing. Rev. Mr. Hazen, of the North church, made the opening prayer, and then came the historical address by ex-Mayor Sam uel L. Warner. It was very long and of lo cal interest chiefly, being an eloquent and ex haustive exposition of the city's progress. Professor C. S. Harrington, D. D., read a centennial hymn, and Lieut. Gov. Sumner made an appropriate address. The hymn "America" was then sung and the benedic tion was pronounced by the Kev. Thomas W. Coit, D. D., of the Berkeley Divinity school. Much praise was bestowed on the Mans field Guard for the excellent manner in which they provided for their guests. They made the boys feel at home and were atten tive in showing them the varieus points of interest. On the return to this city the zouaves made a short street parade and then repaired to lhalheimer's, where a complimentary supper was tendered them. Auction.
