Colonel McFarland Honored.
The people of the coast are getting more
and more interested in the subject of break
waters, and a movement in this direction is
thus spoken of in a Washington despatch of
yesterday in which the name of Colonel Mc
Farland, of this city, appears:
- A board of army engineers, composed of
Colonel C. E. Blunt, Lieutenant Colonel W.
P. Craighni and lieutenant Colonel Walter

ation $100,000 for the construction of a na
tional harbor of refuge of the first class- at
Sandy Bay. The board will meet in Boston
to-morrow. It is to determine the question
if the point selected is or is not the best lo
cation on the coast between Portland and
Boston for such a harbor as is required.
A board composed of lieutenant Colonel
Walter McFarland, lieutenant Colonel J. M.

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.

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
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.
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
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
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.
In Meriden To-day The State Labor
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. Among the visitors
of the day were ex-Lieutenant Governor
Wayland, who has done much to promote
the welfare of the mission, and Rev. Mr.
Butricks, pastor of Wooster square church;

The Celebration In Stamford A Bl(t
The German picnic in Stamford on Mon
day was a great success. All the local Ger

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

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.

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
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.

nated in playing national hymns and other
music. Just before the departure for home
the American band, headed by Mayor Lewis
and the executive committee of the Turners,
marched to each of the society's quarters
and took them up as they passed
and marched them to the dancing
pavilion where the Mayor thanked
them for their courtesies shown him and
hoped to be present on another such occa
sion. About 7:15 the party formed in line
and headed by the American band marched
through the entrance of the park around to
the cars in waiting. They arrived in this
city at 8 o'clock and marched down State to
George, to Church, to Chapel, to Orange, to
the hall, where they were dismissed.
Last evening at 9 o'clock the grand Tur
ners' ball in Turn Hall was begun. The hall
was literally packed. Hardly space enough
was afforded to move around in.

Kicked by a Horse.
A sad and fatal accident occurred near H.
P. Strong's barn on Elm street, New Britain,
Monday afternoon. A little boy, 5 years
old. son of Mr. Walz, the expressman, was
killed by a kick of a horse. The little fellow
had come near the horse which was standing
in the yard. The animal suddenly kicked
and inflicted such a wound in the child's
forehead that he died in less than five min
utes. The parents are overwhelmed witn
grief. The boy struck the horse with a stick,
not knowing his danger.
