A board composed of lieutenant Colonel Walter McFarland, lieutenant Colonel J. M. Wilson and L. C. Overman, Corps of Engin eers, has been directed to assemble at Cleve land, Ohio, September 10, to consider ques tions in connection with the Cleveland breakwater, . SUMMER NOTES. Residents or the Elm City Who Are Recreating- Trips by Sea and Land, ".". The "hot wave'' continued yesterday in full force and unabated. The weather was termed "muggy," close, hot, dog-day weath er, oppressive and beastly, according to peo ple's vocabularies and how the weather af fected them. The rush of picnickers to the shore and to the German picnic at Schuetzen Park made the horse car conductors perspire, to say nothing of the horses, and gladdened the hearts of the omnibus and carryall men. Summer toilets in which white, pink and blue were prominent colors were much worn. This fashion hint is thrown out free. There were female toilets that were suggestive of coolness of fabric and personal comfort that were eyed by perspiring and envious police men. Said policemen were doing ' day duty with decorum in their movement and beads of sweat on their generous faces. There were hosts of young children out in baby carriages and infants in arms were numerous in the throngs hurrying to get to shore resorts. Al together the hot weather is good for the shore and picnic business. W. F. Benedict, Miss lizzie Laflin and John T. Munson, of New Haven, are regis tered at the Grand Hotel, Catskill Moun tains. Professor B. Jepson, wife and family and Mrs. J. M. Wiswell and daughter are visiting Mrs. Jepson's sister, Mrs. Mudge, wife of Rev. Mr. Mudge, in Whitinsville, Mass. Principal French, of the Skinner school, is back from Andover, Mass., where he has spent part of his vacation, and leaves soon for a pedestrian excursion to the Connecticut river. Joseph C. Earle, of this city, is summering in Milford. Miss Mary E. Corry and sister are spend ing their vacation in Brooklyn. P. O. Schwaab, the tobacconist, with his brother, John L. Schwaab, left the city yes terday morning for Litchfield for two weeks. They will stop at the Island House. Rev. J. A. Freeman and family, are spend ing their vacation in Nova Scotia. Mrs. A. L. Blakeslee and son will go to Bell Island. Mr. John M. Peck and family are at Ocean Grove, N. J. Lodge and Society. At the annual session of the Grand lodge, I. O. O. F., of New York, yesterday the grand master, John R. Tressider, in his re port said: "I visited nearly all the districts in the southern and some in the western part of the State. I was received with enthusi asm, and listened to with attention.. . I urged the officers to be accurate in the acquirement of the work and skillful in its delivery; the members to study more carefully the tenets of Odd Fellowship, and diffuse the 'princi ples of benevolence and charity.' " In submitting recommendations for legis lation in matters of reform he says: "I do not think sufficient respect is paid to the dis trict deputy grand masters. There is a dis position to jump the deputy and submit the question directly to the grand master for his decision. It ignores the existence of the deputy, and tends to belittle his influence and opinions." He also recommends the funeral ceremonies of the fraternity being performed at night. This he thinks would . promote the interests of the order and would add solemnity to the scene and pomp and circumstance to the rites of the order. He also recommends that "less money should be spent on the dead and more on the living." Alter counselling the order to pay more at tention to the Degree of Rebekah and saying that in order to "regard our lodge as our family" the help of woman is necessary, the report recommends that theGrand lodgeshould appoint a grand lecturer "to instruct the lodges and members of this jurisdiction in the work. We have over five hundred lodges and nearly fifty thousand members in the state, ana they cannot be reached by the present system of imparting the work." The annual revenue is nearly $4Uu,000 and the per capita tax is less than that of any other jurisdiction except Massachusetts. He also recommends that a society be formed in this city to be known as "The Odd Fellows' Social and Literary Association of the City of New York." Its object should be the promotion of Odd Fellowship, culti vating social and literary pursuits. Sadden Death. The news of the sudden death of Prentice P. Avery was received here yesterday with surprise and sorrow. Mr. Avery left this city Saturday evening for his home in Milford in excellent health, having attended to his business as usual. When he reached home he was attacked by bilious colic and Dr. An drews, of Milford, was with him until 4 o'clock Sunday morning, when the pain was relieved and he was considered mush better. He grew better steadily until yesterday, when he had another attack which resulted in his death within a few hours. ilr. Avery was in his forty-ninth gear and for twenty-five years had been in the ship chandlery business at 207 Long wharf. He was known in the community as an honor able business man and was popular among his associates and also among the sea captains who have been in this port since he has been in business. He was energetic and indus trious and had built up a nourishing trade. His residence was for many years on Woos ter street in this city, but about a gear ago he built a handsome residence in Milford and lived there up to the time of his death. He was a member of Hiram lodge, F. and A. M. A wife and one son, Edward P. Avery, whp was associated with him in business, survive him. Entertainments. MIZPAH. Patti Rosa, a lively little actress who has won for herself golden encomiums from the press of the country, will delight the people of this city at Carll's Opera House the last two evenings of this week. The play in which she is to appear, Mizpah, is one which enables the actress to display her abilities to advantage and is one which holds an audience. A matinee will be given Sat urday afternoon. DAN'S TRIBULATIONS. The initial performance of the amusement season of '84 and '85 was given in Carll's Opera House last evening. A large audience despite the warm weather filled the house and were kept in the best of humor for three hours. "Dan's Tribulations," as pre sented by Hanley's company, is extremely fanny. Like all of Mr. Edward Harrigan's pieces, it abounds in comical situations and those inimitable Irish sayings which have made his efforts so popular. The musical numbers were encored repeatedly, "Cobwebs on the Wall" and the "Little Side Door" be ing especially favored. -. The company is made up of first-class comedians, and the performance throughout is sure to please. Whenever this company may appear again the honse is sure to be crowded. GENERAL BUTLER In Meriden To-day The State Labor Picnic The State labor picnic takes place in Meri den to-day at Hemlock Grove and General Benjamin F. Butler will be present and make an address. The committee of arrangements, of which J. D. Roberts is chairman, have been energetic in preparing for the proper re ception of the hero of Tewksbury. .The general is expected to arrive from Providence before noon, and at 12:30 the opening exer cises, at which he is expected to preside, will take place at the grove. Mr. Luddington will speak on the eight-hour law, and after a short dance, to relieve the monotony, Silas Tyrrell will talk. - Then the event of the day, the general's address, will take place. The general is expected to arrive at 2:56. Ite will be escorted to the grove with a band of music. Other speakers are Mr. Whitehead of New York, Pyne of Hartford and Bald win of Naugatuck. Hartford and New Britain will send delegations of 500 each with a band. - If it rains, General Butler and the other speakers will be escorted to the City Hall. In the evening Theodore Fleis cher's combined orchestra and Prompter Ryan will direct the dancing, and C. T. Post, S. T. Bingham, Victor Drury and F. E. Cleveland will make short addresses. From all reports, the delegations from neighboring towns will be large. - The Bridgeport Farmer echoes a verdict that has long since been passed by .he theater-going public of New Haven when it says: "As usual, Billy Williams is as funny as can be; in fact, he is genius in his par ticular line, and that line is not a narrow one,for he has that rare quality versatility." Billy is evidently as popular in Bridgeport as in New Haven. NASH STREET MISSION. Plenle at Cold Spring: Wood Athletic Contests A Varied Programme Happy Vouna; Folks. The Nash street Baptist mission, a branch of the Wooster Square Baptist church, held their annual picnic yesterday at Cold Spring woods, Orange street, near Mill river.. There was a large attendance and the occasion was greatly enjoyed by all. It was one of the most interesting and enjoyable picnics of the season, and rendered so by the very efficient and able efforts of the superintendent, Mr. S. O. Preston, assisted by his band of willing workers. The day was most auspicious and many friends of the mission and-neighbors shared in the holiday spirit of the occasion. The dinner, which was served at about noon, was one calculated to arouse the appetite, and owing to special arrangements and prep arations was far ahead of the ordinary picnic dinner, according to universal testimony. A great feature of the day was the games de vised for the "occasion by Superintendent Preston. A bulletin tacked to a venerable chestnut tree gave the programme. The children were enthusiastic and entered with all 'spirit and healthy emulation into the sports. The superintendent was master of ceremonies, and Mr. T. Metier Cox presided as time taker and referee. There were sev eral judges and the contestants and prizes are given below.

The German picnic in Stamford on Mon day was a great success. All the local Ger mans came together during the day, and when the visitors arrived the German popu -lation of Stamford would compare favorably with that of any other town in Connecticut. Early in the afternoon a parade took place, in which societies from the following places took part: Stamford, Bridgeport (two so cieties), East Port Chester,- Harlem, Port Chester, New Rochelle, White Plains, South Norwalk, Mount Vernon, Yonkers (two so cieties) and Greenpoint.

The judges J. H. Swartwout, C. W. Smith and Paul Heroner awarded the silver cup to the Harlem Masnnerchor. Mr. Herman made the presentation speech, which was responded to. The Germans then em braced each other and marched about the grounds, while the bands played "The Watch on the Rhine." Scores of kegs of lager were drunk, but good order was maintained. In the evening calcium lights and Chinese lan terns illuminated the grounds, and the picnic was not over tui a late hour. Personal. Mrs. Sophia M.

Rev. Newman Hall, the celebrated London divine, accompanied by his wife, was a pas senger on the Servia with Rev. E. P. Parker, of Hartford. Mr. Hall is one of the most distinguished pulpit orators in London, and many will recall his visit to New Haven years ago and addresses at the old Chapel street ' churcTi. J. C.

TO-DAY'S CONTENTION - To Nominate the Republican State Xleltet and Presidential Elector Last Nla-ht'a Cauc.ua Committees ' Appointed No Speeches The Coun ty CaucusesWill It he Harrison, Bulkeley or Iiounsbury ? The Republican State convention to nomi nate a ticket for State officers and choose presidential electors will take place at the Grand Opera House to-day, opening at 10 a. m. The delegates were present in force last evening. The general caucus was held at Loomis' Temple of Music Hall at 8 o'cloek, as reported below. It was the common .opinion that it was a hot night. The hall was crowd ed and speeches were dispensed with for sev eral reasons one because it was so oppres sively warm. The caucus adjourned before 9 o'clock and the delegates scattered, some going to the Republican headquarters and many others to their respective hotels. The New Haven House and the Tontine were es pecially lively with delegates. As is well known there are three names prominently advocated for the first plaoe on the ticket those of Hon. Henry B. Harrison of New Ha ven, Hon. William H. Bulkeley of Hartford and Phineas C. Lounsbury of Ridgefield. The drift of opinion last night among the dele gates showed that the name of Mr. Harrison looms up strongly and with a fair prospeet of the nomination. For lieutenant governor the name of Senator Cooke, of Winsted, will be strongly put forward. As to other names on the ticket and regarding presidential electors remarks will be found below. It was settled last evening that Judge William T. Elmer, of Middletown, will preside over the convention to-day ;aa temporary chair man and Hon. John A. Tibbits, of New London, as permanent chairman. The New Haven county delegation, it is needless to say, is solid for Harrison, while Hartford county is not a unit for Mr. Bulkeley. Fair field is substantially a unit for Mr. Lounsbury. Windham county will go for Harrison and Middlesex is mainly in favor of Harrison. Litchfield is divided between Harrison and Lounsbury, with a few scattering -for Bulke ley. In the Hartford county caucus the names of both Harrison and Bulkeley found champions. New London county, said one delegate to our reporter, is for Harrfeon. The only trouble with the Harrison candi dacy seemed to be that that gentleman was passive in the contest, a fact which, how ever, told in his favor with many. Also prominently mentioned last night for the nomination for lieutenant governor were the names of Lorenzo Blackstone of Norwich, ex-Mayor H. Wales Lines of Meriden and Hon. John M. Douglass of Middletown. Gos sip last evening also said the name of John M. Douglass, of Middletown, for lieutenant governor had been withdrawn, but will be pressed for the treasurership backed by Mid dlesex, Litchfield, Windham and New Lon don counties. His name will be presented by Wm. T. Elmer, of Middletown. It was the opinion of prominent Republi cans versed in the workings of the party that Lounsbury and Bulkeley will lead on the first informal ballot to-day, and they thought that if Harrison's name does not win to-day it will be for lack of organization in the party forces. ' The name of Mr. Lounsbury will be present ed by Hon. Sam Fessenden of Stamford. He was the choice of the county caucus for the honor. A speech from - Mr. Brandagee will be called for to-day without doubt to fire the hearts of the delegates and make them feel patriotic to their fingers' tips. The Hon. Henry B. Harrison's name will probably be presented by the Hon. William C. Case and a ringing speech will of course be expected and one that will be worthy of the man and the occasion. Hon. N. D. Sperry was an outsider, but was the center of an eager group on the cor ner of Church and Center streets just after the caucus. He had no prophecies to make as to the candidates, but believed that Blaine's election is certain. Mr. Cooke, who is talked of for lieutenant governor, is a genial gentleman, popular in his section, and was president, pro tern, of the Senate last year. THE GENERAL CAUCUS. Loomis' Hall was packed by 8 o'clock last evening. It was not packed in the interest of any candidate, but packed with perspir ing delegates. Shortly after 8 o'clock the general business of canvassing was inter rupted by Chairman C. J. Cole of the State Central committee, who called the caucus to order. He suggested the name of Samuel Frisbie, of Farmington, for chairman. Mr. Frisbie was elected and Clerks D.G. Perkins, of Norwich, and" Allan W. Paige, of Danbury of the House and Senate respectively were chosen secretaries. The first business in order was the appointment of the commit tee on credentials. The committee was compos ed of one from each Senatorial district and was as follows: First district, John R. Hill; Sec ond, A. W. Eaton; Third, George McLane; Fourth, S. P. Williams; Fifth, Eli Bronson; Sixth, E. J. Doolittle; Seventh, A. H. Gil bert; Eighth, William J. Atwater; Ninth, E. F. Williams; Tenth, Nathan C. Ayres; Elev enth, CP. Sturdevant; Twelfth, Robert J. Walsh; Thirteenth, William B. Glover; Four teenth, Frank L. Holt; Fifteenth, J. W. Johnson; Sixteenth, Eugene Wheeler; Sev enteenth, Charles G. Williams; Eighteenth, Samuel B. Horn; Nineteenth, Lyman Dun ning ;'Twentieth,E. H. Beardsley ;Twenty-first, John R. Hutchinson; Twenty-second, George B. Savage; Twenty-third, L. E. Royal; Twenty-fourth, Frank Underwood. COMMITTEE Oft PERMANENT ORGANIZATION. This committee met at the Republican headquarters after the caucus. S. A. Hub bard, of Hartford, was chosen chairman.- It was decided to recommend the name of John A. Tibbits, of New London, for permanent chairman and the following vice-presidents from each Senatorial district: F. B. Cooley, Hartford; M. S. Chapman, Manchester; Wil liam C. Case, Granby; John J. Jennings, Bristol; George H. Cowell, Waterbury. Charles Stockder, Meriden; Thomas L. James, Seymour; George H. Watrous, New Haven; John G. Crump, New London; I. W. Carpenter, Norwich; Herman J.

Perkins of Norwich, A. W. Paige of Danbury and W. S. Downes of Derby will be recommended as secreta ries. Mr. Cole said the State committee em powered him to suggest the appointment of a committee on permanent organization. The caucus voted to appoint a committee and it was as follows; First district, S. A. Hubbard; Second, J. S. Cheney; Third, Lucius Good rich; Fourth, Isaac W. Black; Fifth, George W. Tucker; Sixth, H. Wales Lines; Seventh, John C. Connor; " Eighth, Rufus S. Pickett; Ninth, A. J. Bently; Tenth, L. Brown; Eleventh, George O. Stead; Twelfth, Col. H, K. Scott; Thirteenth, George F. Olm stead; Fourteenth, Henry Leigh; Fifteenth, George Durant; Sixteenth, Charles Searls; Sev enteenth, CoL Alexander Warner; Eighteenth, George S. Rowe; Ninteenth, M. S. Giddings; Twentieth, Horace Dl Curtis; Twenty-first, George M. Clark; Twenty-second, John J. Hubbard; Twenty-third, George B. Fuller; Twenty-fourth, W. A. King. A motion was offered that the committee on resolutions also be appointed, but it was lost after some debate. The caucus then adjourned. THE COUNTY CAUCUSES. The New Haven county caucus was held in the law office of Judge Deming on the comer of Church and Crown streets. -, General S. W. Kellogg was elected president, and James S. Thompson, of East Haven, secretary. No vote was taken. Candidates were dismissed, and the delegates decided to support who ever is nominated. The Harrison sentiment of course strongly prevailed. Reporters were excluded. The Hartford county caucus last evening had for its presiding officer M. S. Chapman, of Manchester, with J. J. Jennings secretary. The names of the several candidates were brought forward, but no definite action was taken. One of the delegates said the county delegation was solid for - Bulkeley; another said it wasn't solid for Bulkeley at all.
