Financial Notes.
Owing to the increase of the grain trade in
New Haven, Bunnell & Scranton have had a
private wire put in their banking rooms con
necting them with Seymour, Hunt & Co. of
Chicago, and Seymour, Baker & Co. of New
York. That also gives them two more priv
ate telegraph wires, one with the Bankers'
& Merchants' company for grain business,
and one with the Western Union Telegraph
company for the stock business. The firm
say that the stock business in New Haven
for the past week has been very active and
that those on the long side have been very
successful. Railroad stocks nave advanced
ten per cent, in the last ten days. It is said
that the grain, wheat and corn prospects are
good for still higher prices for stocks, and
there is a better feeling in financial circles,
and on any decline sound stocks are consid
ered a safe purchase. The market has had
such a rise that a reaction of three or four
goints is probable and would tend to make a
ealthy market and a further rise.
"The best is the cheapest." This is an old

Their Annual Picnic and Summer
Night's Festival.
The Teutonia Manner choir held their an
nual picnic and summer night's festival yes
terday afternoon and evening at Basserman's
grove. The picnic began in earnest at about
three o'clock, at which time therejwere sever
al hundred people on the grounds. The
tables were well occupied with people taking
refreshments, the dancing pavilion was alive
with merry dancers, while up . above were
jolly people viewing the city from the rustic
bowers near the edge of the cliff. The cloudy
sky deterred many from going in the after
noon but in the evening hundreds visited the
grove and the State street cars were crowded.
President Weckesser of the society was on
the grounds attending with his com
mittee to the management of the affair. In
the evening a large number of the members
of the Arion and Harugari Singing societies
fraternized with their sister society and all
combined in singing their favorite songs,
making the woods and rock rebound with
melody. The finest selections were "The
Forest" and "The Soldier's Farewell."
Dancing was indulged in throughout the
afternoon and evening, and kept up until
eleven o'clock. It was a very jolly crowd and
all enjoyed a good time. The committee were
Theodore Knipping, chairman; J. J. Kreizer,

Preparing for Their Annual Excur
sion Philadelphia Veterans Ei
An adjourned meeting of the Veteran Fire
men's association was held at their rooms in
Insurance building last evening, Vice Presi
dent F. M. Lovejoy presiding.
After reading the minutes by the secre
tary, Thomas E. Twitchell, chairman, of the
committee on excursion, reported progress.
C. E. Hayes moved that the association
give a steamboat excursion instead of an an
nual clambake or sea shore dinner, the time
to be determined hereafter. Mr. Hayes said
that his object in making this motion was
the fact that the Veteran Firemen's associa
tion of Philadelphia was to visit New Haven
about the first of September and would be
entertained by the Veteran Firemen's asso
ciation of this city. He thought an excur
sion would be pleasing and at the same time
be enjoyable to the veterans of New Haven.
Considerable discussion followed, in which
T. E. Twitchell, George Butler, A. R. Good
now, Henry Mix, Charles Doty, W . W. King,
M. N. Atwater, B. F. Brockett, G. W. Bailey.
Augustus Bodwell, Major Munson and others
took part.
The majority seemed to lavor an excursion
when the Philadelphians arrived here, while
others thought it would be too late in the
season and that the excursion had better be had
before their arrival and then entertain the
visitors at some seashore resort not far remote
from the city.
After discussion it was voted to lay Mr.
Hayes' motion on the table until the Phila
delphia veterans were heard from and the
positive date nxed as to the time af their
An amendment to the by-laws presented
at the last meeting was adopted, which is an

The meeting was adjourned until next

place on Thursday, August 7.
Arrest of Officer George Waas.
Policeman George Waas was arrested yes
terday morning on a charge that he assaulted
Mr. and Mrs. Weiss, who live on Tyler street.
The arrest is occasioned by a disagreement
between the Waas and the Weiss families.
It appears that the slaughter of Weiss went
to live with the family of Waas as a domestic,
and being considered incompetent, she was
discharged. This .created an ill feeling be
tween the wives of the parties, which extend
ed to the husbands, and a general disagree
ment, resulting in a row between . the male
portion of the two families, was the result
as related by the plaintiff. The assistant
prosecuting attorney saw no way out of the
difficulty but to let the court hear the story
buu paw judgment on tne case.

How The Indians Appreciated xne
Oysters Interesting Historical Relics
A Visit to the Great Shell Deposit of
the Plseataway Trine or Indians on
the North Bank of the Potomac Riv
er in Charles County, Maryland.
The oyster business, now so important
an interest in Fair Haven and in Baltimore,
dates back not much more than fifty years.
But the Indians in the oyster producing
regions were acquainted with the edibility
and rusciousness of fine oysters long before
this county was settled, and their bill of fare
included oysters in their season. Mr. H.
W. Hitchcock, oyster planter and packer of
Baltimore, Md., and dealer in fruits and
canned goods, formerly in the oyster busi
ness in Fair Haven,: and well known here,
showed us yesterday samples of oyster shells
and TT"3i'"' pottery, also an Indian hatchet
head which he unearthed in Maryland near
the Potomac river and which are evidences
of the thrift and industry of the Piscataway
tribe, of Indians who once flourished in that
section. These relics were found in an im
mense bed of shells far below the surface and
are undoubtedly from three to four hundred
years old. Various other samples obtained
by Mr. Hitchcock are deposited by him with
the Maryland Historical society, we ap
pead an article on the subject from the pen
of Mr. Hitchcock which is of much historical
well as local interest.
On a high bluff on the west side of Pope's
Creek overlooking the Potomac, on land be
longing to the Pope's Creek Railroad com
pany, Mr. Stone and. others, lies this great
deposit of shells, no doubt the largest of the
kind in the world, covering as it does over
ten acres of ground and the same being from
six to twelve feet deep, covered with earth
from five to eight inches in depth in which
have grown over parts of it thickets of cedar,
beach and oak trees, some of which are very
large; the soil being caused by the accumu
lation of dust, after which vegetation set in
until the whole was covered up, taking as it
did over or fully 200 years.
This was once the place where the iTscat-
away tribe of Indiana obtained their supply
of -oysters and no one can tell how long tne
accumulation was going on. It was discov
ered when the Pope's Creek road was cut
through to the Potomac river as it ran along
the edge of this bank, and tney now have six
large kilns built, burning these shells into
lime which is used for fertilizing purposes
and transported by the Pope's Creek railroad
up through the country, and it is estimated
that they have a supply oi sneiis tor ten
Among these sneiis were tound a number
of large pieces of Indian pottery and proba
bly the best collection of the same in the
State superior to that at the .Historical
society room besides specimens of their
hatchets, etc.
This pottery shows that some oi it. espe
cially the thickest of it, was used for cooking
the oysters in, and the' other, being thin as it
is, was used for carrying the oysters away to
the interior tor otner portions ot the tribe,
No doubt the cause of this place being s
lected was owing to the fine harbor when bad
weather came on in the river that Pope's
Creek then afforded for the many birch bark
canoes used by the Indians in taking these
oysters at that time, and no one has any idea
to what extent the oyster business might
have been carried on. There is certainly
one thing evident rrom the size
of the shells found there in a per
fect state of preservation, that they grew
no larger u as large tnen as they do now.
when there are tongmen to work at them and
the piratical dredgers to scatter them and
make thousands of acres of ground where
oysters now grow that years ago was mud
flats and unsuitable ground for their growth.
xne sneiis on tne lower ena ot tms great de
posit resemble and indicate that they came
from opposite and below in the river and
those on the tipper end indicate that they
came from above, as far as what was then
called Potopaco, now Port Tobacco, and it
is evident that this was then to that tribe
what Canton Hollow now is to Baltimore,
and the millions of bushels of shells there
show that it must have been . carried on to a
great extent.
Patawomeke or Potomeack, now Potomac
river, was discovered June 16th, 1608.
The principal Indian settlement in Mary
land and on that river found by Capt. John
Smith was that of the Patuxent tribe, the
Secowacomoco and farther np the river was
the Piscatawa tribe, all members of the
Powhatanic confederacy, and this was the
tribe who conducted this oyster business at
this place and who with the Patuxents exer
cised sovereignty over all southern and cen
tral Maryland.
The Piscataways called in Father White's
journal was the most extensive and power
ful tribe found in the State. Kittamaquinda
was their capital and situated about fifteen
miles below the present city of Washington
and extended back for 145 miles, occupying
the greater part of. Maryland, and Pope's
Ureek near this great shell deposit was nam
ed after and belonged to Nathaniel Pope, who
was exempted from doing militia duty April
11th, 1643, by Cecilius Calvert, eldest son
of Lord Baltimore and afterwards second
Lord Baltimore.
The chief of these Indians, while his name
was Chtomachen, was called Tavae, a title
of honor and station, and obtained his power
in the tribe by putting his brother, the for
mer chief, to death.

used by them. They were bound to the end
of a stick and glued in with turpentine, and
sometimes they selected a young tree, of
which they made a handle without cutting
it. They split one end and inserted the
stone, covering it with turpentine obtained
from the pine trees. The tree grew and
tightened around it and enclosed it so firmly
that it could nardly be torn out, afterwards
they cut off the tree at the proper length so
as to nave a handle ot convement form.
These hatchets were sharpened "by the pro

The Cold Blooded Deed of Edward Hal-
stead Shooting Andrew Gorman
Three Times.
Edward Halstead went into the house of
Andrew Gorman at Falls Village, Sunday
morning, and gained admittance to the room
where Gorman and his wife were sleeping. A
scuffle ensued and Halstead drew a revolver
and fired three shots which- took effect, one
through the heart, one in the arm, breaking
the bone, and the third through the body.
During the scuffle another shot was fired by
Halstead, which wounded himself in the leg.
Halstead then went to the house of Hon.
David Brewster, a selectman of the town, and
gave himself up. He said: "I have shot
Gorman three times and killed him." His
face and bands were covered with blood and
he presented a frightful sight. Gorman died
instantly after the shooting.
The boy of Halstead was at home at the
time of the tragedy. He says that his father
sent frira out after a pail of water, and while
he was at the well he heard some one come
through the garden. The boy had but just
crone in when uorman entered at tne door.
Halstead told the man to leave, but the latter
refused,hot words ensued, and the two grap
pled and went down. His father fired sev
eral snots wniie uorman was on nun.
Mrs. Halstead rushed to the rescue
and tried to pull away Gorman. Then more
shots were fired, and the boy knew no more,
Halstead said that he had shot Gorman three
times. He had a revolver of five chambers,
every one of which were empty. One bullet
went through the flesh of Halstead's ' thigh,
and one pierced the heart or (jorman.- it is
said that Halstead had a grudge against Gor

Defeating Black Ned in a $100 Race
at Hamilton Park.
A crowd numbering about three hundred
men and boys and a few ladies assembled at
Hamilton Park yesterday afternoon to wit
ness a race between William Siebert's Black
Ned and Patrick O'Keefe's Moscow. The
race was for a purse of $100. It was called
about 3 o'clock. Moscow had the pole and
seemed to be the favorite in what little bet
ting there was. The horses got away with
Black Ned on the rufl. His driver, Mr. T.
L. Holt, had to bring him almost to a walk
before he got on his feet again. The
distance thus lost was not regained, and
Moscow won in 2:52. On the next heat
Black Ned broke on the first turn and lost
several lengths, but by good work lessened
the distance and at the finish was only about
half a length behind. The time was 3:0d.
On the last heat Ned broke several times and
Moscow won by a long distance, his driver,
John Sarsfield, of Portland, Conn., waving
his hand and smiling serenely down on the
crowd as he passed the pole. O'Keefe and
his friends were happy, and Siebert remarked
that he couldn't win every time.
Six Carloads of Baptists Picnic There
and Enjoy Themselves Well Skating
tbe I.eadlns Amusement.
Many anxious glances were cast toward the
threatening sky early yesterday morning for
signs of clearinst weather, and Old Pr obahili-
ties received his due share of attention, i
being the day for the annual picnic of the
First Baptist church and Sunday school at
High Rock Grove. Before seven o'clock old
Sol condescended to show his face, and the
church bell rang out and the picnic question
was decided. Six carloads left the Derby
depot at 8:30, and the ride to and from
the grove was very enjoyable made more so
by the absence of dust. The day was very
pleasantly spent among the numerous at
tractions at the grove, the principal one be
ing the skating rink which was well patron
ized. To those who do not skate the music
of the High Rock band of seven pieces is a
pleasant feature. At twelve o'clock the
church and school sat down to dinner after
singing Old Hundred. The weather was
pleasant and the picnic was a success. Among
those present were Rev. Mr. Butricks the
pastor, wife and child, also his mother from
Ogdensburg, New York; Pierce Welch,
superintendent of Sunday school; 1 red Betts
and wife, Mrs. Samuel Betts, Deacon Stow,
Deacon Hanson, D. S. Cooper and family,
Mr. Bunnell, of Bunnell 6t Sperry, masons;
Mr. Bishop, jeweler and wife, Mr. and Mrs.
Edward AUing, Miss Hila Armstrong, Mr.
Benton, wife and Miss Ollie Benton and Pho
tographer Phelps. The best skaters at the
rink were Miss Ollie Benton, Mr. Perkins,
Iillie Sellew and Ashley Willis. The band
cave a concert in the pavilion in the grove
from three till four o'clock. The train left
at 4:45, arriving safely about six. The com
mittee having this picnic m charge were
Fred Ailing, George Phelps and Fred Betts,
But for the threatening weather in the early
morning there would doubtless have been a
much larger attendance.
