The Festivities at Schuetzen Park The Warm Weather Does Not Deter Them from Going Throuarh Lively Exercises To-dy-a Exercises. The Turners turned out early yesterday morning and went to Turn Hall. Headed by the American band they marched to the new depot and went on a special train to Schuetzen Park. The exercises of tne day did not begin until after 10. The first num ber on the programme was the calisthenic exercise. The place chosen was the dancing pavilion in front of the hotel in the park. The judges took their places - on the platform and called out Meriden as having been chosen to perform first. In these calisthenics the competing classes are allowed to choose the manner or implement they will use, or they may use none. Meriden was represented by eight young men, each of whom carried a pair of wooden dumb-bells. With only three slight individual breaks they performed the intricate exercise. They were loudly- ap plauded. When Waterbury was called for sixteen young men fell into line, marched about the pavilion, ranged themselves before the judges and without implement of any kind went through even a more difficult se ries of movements than the athletes from the Silver City. They Were applauded twice be fore the close. The Hartford delegation were only eight in number. They appeared before the plat form with staves in their hands. Their ac tion was almost in perfect unison and they seemed to require less prompting from their teacher than any of those who had preceded them. ' New Haven was called next. The men were of slighter build than their Hartford competitors. Their exercises were the most difficult and thev were llDeraiiy appiauaea. Holyoke and New Britain were then called. Holyoke had six representatives and New Britain six. But neither used any implement and both were inferior to many of those who had gone before. The judges refused to give their estimate of the excellence of the dif fecent classes further than that the exhibi tion as a whole was of unusual merit and evinced excellent drill practice. It was gen erally understood by those present that the contest was between New Haven and Hart ford, with possibly Waterbury, followed by Meriden. At two o'clock the contest, was continued. The first class gave some very pretty exhibi tions on the long horse while the second class were trying their skill on the parallel bars. Undoubtedly the finest exhibition of the day was the pole vaulting. All the first class contested. When the height of 8 feet was reached the contest was narrowed down to only the Heiser brothers, of Hartford, and George lUckle and Frank Horgen, of .New Haven. The three former failed to leap the line at 8 feet 4 inches and thus left the rest of the vaulting to the last named. Borgen continued to vault until the line touched 0 feet 6 inches, when he gave out. Frank Borgen has a record of 10 feet 0 inches. rext in order was rope climbing wltn tne use of feet.- The men were so fatigued that no very great climbing was done, although R. Borne, of Meriden, climbed to the height of 85 feet 4 inches, and the second best man, Mr. Buckall, of Hartford, reached 83 feet 8 inches. Dancing was greatly enjoyed by the five hundred or more people who were pre sent until half -post o, when they took the train for Turn Hall where a theatrical per formance took place. To-day is the "Ladies' day." The female friends of the different out-of-town societies will arrive and go with tne Turners to Hcnuetzen Jfark. The programme for to-day Is: At 10 o'clock tne Turners, neaaed By tne American Dana, will march to the depot, where they take the cars to Schuetzen Park. Before going to the depot they have a short street parade, going througn urantze to unapei, to franklin, to Grand, to Elm, to Church, where they will be reviewed by His lienor Mayor Liewls, thence to George, to State, to the depot. This afternoon they have exhibition turn ing by all the Turners. At 0 o'clock this evening the prizes will be distributed, after which they have a grand ball. The Ameri can band will give a concert and Rosinus' orchestra furnish music for dancing. Thomp son's stages leave the end of the State street car route to the pork for only five cents, in stead of ten as before. Last evening the Diamond club had their picnic at Basserman's Park. About two hun dred people were present and a most enjoya ble time was had by all. Rosinus' orchestra' furnished the music and Professor Stevens prompted. WEST HAVEN.

The reward of $50 offered by Samuel A, Porter, of Wolcott, for tne recovery of the team stolen from his barn lost Monday night was paid yesterday to De tective Brewer, instead of George Ives of the brick yard in North Haven.

The IHcBrlde-Bradley and Oelston murphy Casea Before the Commis sioners mayor Lewis Talks About the Harmony That Should Exist Be tween Policemen. A special meeting of the Police Commis sioners was held last evening for the purpose of trying the charges preferred by Officer James R. Gelston against Officer George J, Murphy. The charges alleged that Officer Murphy was guilty of gross neglect of duty in leaving his beat and of conduct unbecom ing a policeman in striking Officer Gelston and calling him names. The difficulty oc curred on the night of August 8, shortly af ter 1 o'clock. Officer Gelston was called. He testified that he left the precinct station at 1 o'clock and went down the railroad track. He met Officer Nettleton and asked him to go with him to look through the cars that were stand ing on the track. They were near some cars when they heard a rap. Witness asked Net tleton if he rapped on the cars. He replied that he did not, and as the rap was repeated he went around on the other side of the cars. He saw a man running up the track and gave chase.. . He fired a pistol shot. The man stopped and proved to be Officer Mur phy. Gelston then said: "O, it's you, is it?" "Yes, it is; you shot at me," was the reply- . "You lie, you loafer. I didn't." "Fm no loafer." Gelston then turned and Murphy struck him. - Further words passed between them and more blows might have followed if Officer Nettleton had not interfered. Both parties to the altercation had been on friendly terms before. Officer Nettleton corroborated Officer Gel- ston's testimony. By Officer Murphy's cross examination it was brought out that he was as muoh off his beat as Murphy was. Officer Murphy said: "un the night be fore the night in question I had some trouble with three roughs and got considerably hurt. I asked for' permission to lay off half the night, and got it. I reported at the usual time, intending to leave after reporting at 1 o'clock. In the early part of the evening my attention was called to 'a switchman and brakeman who were drinkine a good deal and one of the railroad employes asked me to keep watch of ' them. 1 saw them going from the Belle Dock crossing with a pail from one of the saloons about there, into a vacant lot. I. went down to close Austin's door at a quarter of one o'clock. I then walked up Bridge street, saw the same two men trying to get into two saloons. They were unable to do so and then went over to the switch house. I fol lowed them and they saw me and walked up the track. I followed almost-up to Chapel street. . There one of the men stopped at the lumber yard to light a cigar. I told bim to go home and he went. This operation delayed me ten minutes. I was due at tne office at l o ciock, so i was late ana hurried on. I am a fast walker and runner. I'm not bragging, gentlemen, when I say that there are not four men in the department who can beat me running or walking. I wore on my feet what we call 'sneaks.' They are light rubber shoes. I did not go up to East street as usual, but walked on up the track as I saw no reason against it. When near St. John street I heard parties talking on the west side of some cars and as I was passing I looked between the cars and saw someone iiupoliceman's clothes. I rapped on the ear and said 'hello.' I heard one ask the other what that was, and so for the fun of it I rapped again and kept on, supposing they - would come - around to see who it was! Pretty soon I heard a ' pistol shot and I am positive I heard the shot whizz by my ears. I then turned and saw Officer Gelston. He said to me: 'You -dirty loafer, what are you doing on my beat!' I looked at him because I thought he was fooling, and then said: 'I guess you are mistaken; I have aright here.' He then said I was a liar and a loafer, and I struck him with my hand under the excite ment of the moment. I am not a loafer, and have worked my way along, being employed by the railroad and then by the Adams Ex press company. As I was out of a position at one time I was advised to try for the po lice force. I approached Mr. Gallagher and asked his advice. -1 took that advice, and got on the force. The chief will tell you I am no liar: I am not sure whether I struck him with my " closed ' fist or my open Jiand. but I know I did not have my ; club. I simply ask the leniency of this Board for a man who forgot himself under great provocation.' I did not report the matter . at the office because I thought Gelston would think better of his determination to bring the matter before the commissioners.'' - . . .. , rtffir Vtirthr introduced a railroad em ploye to corroborate his testimony as to why he was down near the tracks on the night in Question. The man saw hjm twenty uuoutes before the affair happened, so Officer Murphy could not nave oeen in tne car as it was re ported. That closed the testimony. Commissioner Uollmau moved that the Board find Officer Murphy guilty of striking Officer Gelston, but not of the other charges ana tnat ne oe eensurea Dy rns lionor the Mayor. Also that Officer Gelston be censured for using language unbecoming an officer. This vote was passed unanimously. The men were called in, and Mayor Lewis rose, laid his cane upon the table and pro ceeded to rebuke the policemen. ' He spoke in his most impressive manner. "Both of you disgraced yourselves," he said. "You for got yourselves and your duty as public offi cers of this great city. ion nave ootn neen good officers. It is surprising that you should have quarreled thus. This Board ex pects that the officers of this Board are to co operate with each other in performing their duties. We don't want ever to hear of any thing of the kind-"' . The main testimony in the McBnde-Brad ley case was heard at the last meeting of, the Board, but Roundsman Mcunde's cnieu wit ness, Officer Ahern, was then out of town and consequently his testimony could not be taken. Officer Ahem appeared last evening and testified that he saw Roundsman Mc Bride stop and heard the man talk; the voice sounded like Supernumerary Bradley's, but he couldn't be positive who ft was. The man was in citizen's dress and he wore no shield. The Board balloted on the question whether Supernumerary Lyman E. Bradley was guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer on the night of May 5th by obstructing Roundsman McBride. The vote stood as fol lows: Not guilty, 5; guilty, 1. As the charges were not sustained the officer will be reinstated. A petition was read from the residents of the eastern portion of the Twelfth ward ask ing for a police telephone signal box. It was ordered on file. Commissioner Hart moved that a commit tee of two be appointed to select suitable voting places for the forthcoming elections. Commissioners Hart and (Jatlin were appoint ed as such committee. Messrs. Hart and Catlm were also ap pointed a committee to consider the matter of the extension and purchase of the tele phone signal system already used as an ex periment. . To Lake Pleasant.
