Loads A Good Day and Everybody
Happy Speeches and Music.
Nine cars filled with people went to High
Rock Grove yesterday, morning on the
Church of the Messiah picnic The Church
of the Holy Spirit, Rev. Mrs. Hanaford pas
tor, joined with them by invitation and
Thomas' orchestra accompanied to furnish
music for dancing. The day was everything
to be desired for a picnic, and everyone
seemed to enjoy it to the fullest extent,
Dancing was enjoyed the greater part
the day, while the skating rink and other
amusements were not neglected. At
o'clock the call was sounded for dinner and
the two societies occupied their respective
places. After all were satisfied the presi
dent of the committee, Mr. T. F. Lamb, in

Rev. Mr. Gilbert, of Central New York, and
Bev. Mr. Perry, of Springfield, Mass., fol
lowed with very humorous remarks, while
Sev. Mrs. Hanaford, at her own request,
closed with a very earnest address, Dancing
was then resumed and at 3 o'clock Miss Net
tie Perkins gave an exhibition of fancy skat
ing at the rink, which elicited much ap
plause. The Church of the Messiah's gener

firmer than ever in the belief of the brotherhood of
mankind, wherever I went I found the same warm
hearts that greet me here to-day. As denominations,
as churches, as preachers, we have been from all
past time trying to tell the story of God's love and
interest in the human race. One church tells it uf
one way and another pn another. Our
misunderstanding minds and stammering tongues
cannot plainly declare the whole truth of God, of
cm-isc ana immortality, w e can see only a little
way, and the power of th e gospel paralyzes our
tongues as we try to express its language. It is be
cause the theme of religion is so vast that we.
our weakness, differ concerning it. We trv to teU
the tale, but cannot. I have faith, however, to be
lieve that as the world grows in wisdom all its great
religious teachers are seeing the truth more as we
try to express it. They see the oneness of God and
humanity. They see the sin crushed of earth nsini
at last to happiness and glory; they see a gram
consummation to all God's works.

Death of Mrs. Maria Bishop.
The death of Mrs. Maria Bishop removes
one of New Haven's oldest town-born inhab
itants. She was a woman of penetrating in
tellect, energetic temperament and industri
ous disposition. The Christian religion was
her creed and the Bible was to her the word
of God, so she lost no time in trying to ad
just the conflict between this book and the
claims of natural science, but simply kept
the faith.
Besides this she was an honest woman,
quiet, peaceable, independent, plain, yet
high spirited, and had a thorough contempt
for all shame and humbug. For the welfare
of her own family she was tender and solic
itous, kindly disposed towards her neighbors
dealt justly with her fellow men and always
minded her own business.
County Commissioners.
Prosecuting Agent Dailey appeared before
the county commissioners to oppose the
granting of a license to Alexander Cummings
for a saloon at 583 Grand street. His ob
jection was based on Cummings' police re
cord between 1876 and 1880, the record show
ing that during this period he had been ar
rested fourteen times for various petty offen
ses. Cummings is now but 22, and Mr.
Dailey alleged nothing against him for the
past four years, but thought his previous
misconduct should be sufficient to prevent
him from getting a license. A number of
witnesses testified to the applicant's present
good character. The commissioners voted
to grant the license, ' Commissioner Jacobs

Views of Prominent New Haven Men
Representatives of Various Boards
of Trade and the Industries Antlcl
nations That a Decided Business Ira
provement Is at Hand The Large
Wheat Crop a Factor In the Indie
tlons Other Indications.
The views of various prominent citizens as
to the general business outlook in the coun
try are given below. The opinion entertained
is that the period of depression which has
prevailed for months past is Buccumbing be
fore the approach of a decided improvement
of business and return of confidence. The
change they attribute in part to the great
promise of the wheat crop and the indica
tions that a large portion of it will be wanted
abroad, and also to the prospect that there
will soon come increased demands upon the
manufactories. They also believe that mer
cantile and manufacturing interests are upon
a more solid and substantial basis and that
the element of speculation and wild schem
ing has had a set back which will result
wholesome fruits.
Ex-Governor Bigelow was found by the re
porter busy in the transaction of business,
He said: Yes, there are good signs of an lm
provement in business throughout the
country. I look for a boom in business next
spring. We shall feel a touch of the better
feeling in the fall. Next spring times will be
Mr. Nathan H. Sanf ord was of the opinion
that by the fall business generally throughout
the country would show a decided gain and
improvement. The immense wheat crop
would give a great deal of work to many of
the great railroads, particularly as there was
a prospect that Europe would want many
millions of dollars worth of the staff of life,
The business situation would improve by the
influx of $100,000,000 or more into this
country. All sections would gain in such an
event. Then there were other signs indica
tive of a returning confidence in financial and
mercantile circles and of a healthy improve
ment of matters in the manufacturing and
mercantile world.
Mr. Monson, of Monson & Carpenter.
thought the signs of the times all favorable
to an early improvement in trade and busi
ness throughout the country. The period of
stagnation would ere long undoubtedly give
way for the approach of a healthy business
activity and an increase of prosperity.
Mr. James Graham, of James Graham &
Co., the brass founders on Wooster street,
said that the outlook was brightening. In
his own business there were indications of in
creased activity. The abundant promise of
the crops was another solid indication that
the dull season was passing away, to De suc
ceeded by a general improvement in business.
Mr. Max Adler, of the great corset manu
factory on Court street, said: "This is and has
been for some time a period of uncertainty
and distrust in the business world. Values
are uncertain and fluctuating and manufac
turers hesitate to strike out or manufacture
for anything but present and immediate de
mands. Then the merchants buy cautiously
and only for present necessities. But with
the crop prospects and the wholesome frails
of the lessons of the post reverses and other
indications I see reason to anticipate a decid
ed improvement in business before long."
Mr. b. J. rioggson, the manufacturer.
thought the outlook at present rather impos
sible for any speedy resumption of driving:
times, but thought the country was working
out of the dull period.
Mr. Philip Pond, of the Board of Educa
tion, was quite confident that the indications
of the times point toward a decided improve
ment in business, l here were good indica
tions that the period of distrust and lack of
confidence was passing away, to be succeeded
before a great while by a period of solid
prosperity based upon a wise conduct of
business. Business men were now working
on the sate plan.
Mr. Charles M. Proctor, of Proctor, Ma-
guire & Co. , dealers in dry goods, thought
the Dusmess outiooK tor the tall in his line
was good. "Our stock is low at the present
time, he continued, ' our spring trade hav
ing been very good. Trade was better this
spring than last. Prices were on the decline
last year and we were obliged to meet the
prices of forced auction sales in New York
and other cities. But prices have reached
rock bottom now and we look for a good le
gitimate fall trade. Manufacturers are not
overstocked as they were a year ago. We
shall keep our stock down and sail close to
the wind. Yes, the outlook for the fall
trade is favorable."
Maier Zunder, of M. Zunder & Son, whole
sale grocers, was asked about the prospect
for the fall trade. "Well, on the whole, the
outlook is not very cloudy," he said. "
will say that my business is not very flourish
ing at present, but it was no better last year.
I do not see anything alarming, and further
more, 1 can say that 1 sincerely believe that
the success of either party in the presiden
tial election will not affect business serious
ly. The depression in stocks has had some
effect on business. There are perhaps fifty
or seventy-five men in New Haven who deal
considerably in stocks. They are men who
have capital and their investments are not
paying as well as they expected, their
quarterly and semi-annual dividends
are not coming in as they expected. Con
sequently they are not putting; out any more
money, but are keeping it idle. So through
out the country, and it must have its effect.
r or instance, I know a gentleman who was
intending to buy a fine carriage. The other
day 1 asked him wnether he had bought it
yet or not, and he said he had given up the
idea, as nis dividend nadn t come m. But
the opinion of our bankers is that there will
be a reaction and that trade will be good this
Mr. J. B. Sargent said: "I can't tell any
thing about it. One man's guess is as good
as another's. My rule is to 'trust in God
and keep your powder dry. "
Hiram Camp, president, and r rank E.
Morgan, secretary and treasurer of the New
Haven Clock company, thought there was no
reason why the fall trade should not be good.
They said it was too early to tell definitely,
as the buyers from the South and West have
not begun putting in their orders yet.
.Messrs. Henry i . and John M. Peck, of
Peck Brothers & Co., manufacturers of brass
faucets and plumbers' materials, appeared to
be cheerful regarding the fall outlook. Their
business was good at the present time;
more orders were in than could be
filled at present. The' atmosphere had
been cleared by the failures and
there was no reason why trade
should not be excellent. Business with deal
in stoves, which is always best at this
season of the year, has been nsusually good
this summer, and that is an index of trade in
brass works and plumbers' materials. The
favorable outlook for the crops would cer
tainly give an impetus to trade. In the
opmion of Mr. H. F. Peck the rule that busi
ness is dull in presidential years does not
hold, as it was very-good four years aeo and
promisea to De tnis year.
well. 1 guess you hnd it all one way-
quiet," said Mr. Henry Killam when the re
porter stated his errand. " As for the fall it
is rather early to tell yet. We are not run
ningf with our full capacity now. I am in
clined to think the business will be dull un
til this election is settled. But trade ought
to De gooa next spring. "
Shall It Be Dissolved?
Yesterday forenoon before Judge Stoddard
of the Superior court a motion for the dis
solving of an injunction was heard. Foskett
& Bishop had attached property in the Carll
Opera House in a suit for a debt of about a
thousand dollars. An injunction was issued
against the removal of the property, such as
stage appurtenances and furniture, and Fos
kett & Bishop now ask that the injunction
may be removed, so that they can take full
possession of the property attached and take
to a place for keeping. The mo
tion is resisted on the ground that
the property cannot be taken away from the
Opera House without working an injury to
Mr. Carll and without more or less damage
to it. The officer who served the writ of at
tachment is in possession, and Mr. Carll, as
said before, had enjoined him from removing

The Laws Against Swearing and
Throwing Banana Peels on the Side
walksThe Sad Efl'ects of One Bana
na Peel.
"Isn't there a law prohibiting loud swear
ing on the streets?" was asked of one
of New Haven's "finest" last evening.
"Yes, there is a law on the statutes, but
swearing is so prevalent that we seldom ar
rest a man for it. Sometimes if it is carried
to an extreme we caution the ones who are
violating the law. If a man uses abusive
or insulting language to ladies, we arrest
him, but seldom do so for swearing. It is
one of those laws that have become almost
obsolete. Another example is the law for
bidding the throwing of banana peels or orange
skins upon the sidewalk. If you were going
along the Btreet and should throw a piece of
orange skin down on the walk and I should
arrest you and make you give bonds, or stay
all night in the lockup, you would think it a
good deal of hardship. But the law would
uphold us in doing so, and the evil of banana
peels is quite serious. Sometimes I throw
off a great many of them in my rounds.
Only the other day I saw a lady fall be
cause of one of them on Chapel
street and hurt herself badly.
A young man of my acquaintance was once
walking on the street with the young lady to
whom he was engaged when she slipped on a
banana peel and broke her leg. Not long af
terward she died of the effect of that fall and
the young man felt so badly that he became
deranged and used to go around the streets
picking up banana peels, orange skins and
the like and throwing them in the gutter.
And there is an ordinance requiring every
