pleasure by numerous of our citizens who
will be glad of an opportunity to hear such
fins music again.

Strength of the Regiments Notes.
Niantic, Sept. 1.
The clerk of the weather vouchsafed a
beautiful day for the brigade encampment.
At an early hour this morning all was life
and bustle at the Second regiment armory on
Meadow street. New Haven company quar
termasters with their details were kept busy
in transporting baggage to the railroad where
Quartermaster E. C. Hill superintended the
loading of seven baggage cars. At 8 a. m.
the city battalion, under command of Colo
nel Graham, marched in column of fours to
the depot, and a few minutes later the sec
tion attached to the Gatling gun aad Com
pany A, Fifth battalion, moved directly
down Meadow street to the depot. A train
of 12 passenger and 7 baggage cars was
standing upon the track opposite the depot,
No delay was occasioned in embarking
aboard the train, and within fifteen minutes
after leaving their armory the troops were
comfortably settled in their cars. The seats
were turned back to back, guns were placed
between the backs, equipments hung on the
hooks attached to the baggage racks, .knap
sacks packed under the seats, hats in bag
gage racks, dress coats taken off and hung
np, and then our guards were settled down
among the seats prepared to take it easy
until the train Bhould reach Niantic. Colo
nel Graham and staff rode in the drawing
room car Newport. The colonel was par
ticularly pleased with the full ranks reported
by the city battalion, and felt certain that
the Second would "do herself proud" during
the coming week. The genial Lieutenant
Colonel Leavenworth was in a happy and
contented mood, receiving the congratula
tions of his brother officers upon his safe
recovery from a long illness and his ability
to attend camp with his regiment.
Thanks to the excellent management of
Superintendent O. M. Shepard, of the Shore
Line division of the Consolidated road, there
was no delay in the departure of the train
and at 8:30 sharp the train consisting of
nineteen cars drawn bv two engines drew out
of the depot and we were off for a week's in
struction in the art of war. Being a special
train we made no stops this side of Saybrook
where we stopped long enough to give the
engines a drink. At 10:25 the train came to
a halt in front of the depot at Niantic. With
in ten minutes the Second were disembarked
and on the march toward camp headed by
their splendid band the American. The
Second came upon the ground in column of
fours. The line was halted opposite their
quarters and captains instructed to dismiss
their companies. They crossed the
color line at 10:53. The First
had already arrived and were busy
arranging their quarters. The Third were
also on the grounds, busy getting ready for
the first guard mount. The Fourth and
Fifth battalion didn't arrive in camp until
later, the former at 11:54 and the latter at
11:52 a. m. Much speculation was had at
headquarters as to which regiment would
make the best time m performing the cere
mony of guard mounting. The detail from
the Second appeared upon the parade ground
first. First Sergeant Bates of the Grays re
porting his detail to the adjutant first. Tak
ing into consideration this being the first
guara mount this year, it was very fairly ex
ecuted, with the exception of the execution
of inspection arms, which was very poorly
The Third regiment performed guard
mounting next, and soon had their sentinels
posted en the line.
The Fourth regiment followed next, and
peitormea the ceremony m good time.
The First regiment did not mount guard
until 3 p. m. What caused the delay no
xeiiow can nud out ;with any degree of cer
tainty. I give below a summary of the time
the different regiments crossed the color line
upon arrival, and the time their guard

Before leaving the armory this morning
Col. Graham in behalf of the members of
Co. E, Light Guard, presented Capt. Loomis
with an elegant gold watch. Capt. Loomis
deserves it ne is a good omcer and a hard
worker lor the interest of his command.
Members detailed for guard duty to-day

The Third regiment report in camp thirty-
tour commissioned olhcers, 3va enlisted men,
mating a total ol 413.
The Fourth report in camp 31 eommis
sioned officers, 436 men. a total of 467.
Battery A report five commissioned offi
cers, 74 enlisted men: total 79.
The First, Second and Fifth battalions
have not at present time (6:50) handed in
their reports.
Captain Arnold of the Grays feels proud
of his company. To-day they take into
camp fifty-three men and every one of them
is working to tne credit of their commandant.
Brigade dress parade at 4:30 was well
done considering it was the first time this
season. The music by the consolidated
band upon this occasion was fine and the
marching movements of the band show
Drum Major Steele has them well instructed.
The regimental dress. parade of the Second
was very fine. During the parade rest the
men stood as solid as a stone wall. If the
Second do as well the rest of the week as
they have commenced they will, as Colonel
Graham remarked, take the cake.
Annual Election St. John Street m. E.
At the annual election of the trustees of
the St. John street M. E. church the follow
ing named gentlemen were elected for three
years: S. M. Munson, B. Jepson, J. H. Tay
lor; to fill the unexpired term of Hezekiah
McKinney, J. A. Goodwin.
Entertain ments.
The ever popular Pat Rooney combination
appear at Peck's Grand Opera House next
Friday evening. The company numbers 25
selected artists, and has a new budget of
fun, plenty of good music and attractive
performance generally.
The New Haven Opera House was opened
for the season last evening under its new
management. The Wilbur Opera company,
which has often given many pleasant enter
tainments in this city, was the one . to hold
the boards. The new comic opera "Estrella,"
by Messrs. Parke & Searelle, was the mu
sical comedy presented and proved quite en
tertaining to the audience. The opera con
tains some very pretty music, which was
well rendered by the company last evening,
some of the members receiving a ' triple
encore. The audience was gradually
aroused to considerable enthusiasm toward
the last and from the expression
were evidently very much pleased
with the performance. The company ,thongh
not large nor comprising a great number of
talented artists are well drilled and act with
pleasing spirit and vim. The performance
was one which, considering the earliness of
the season, argues well for the future and
withon doubt before the season is over some
of the finest traveling organizations will visit
this house. Fans were distributed through
out the house last evening for the use of the
audience and it is the manager's (Mr. Wall)
intention to see that the comforts of the
audience are in every way carefully looked
after. This evening the Wilbur Opera com
pany will appear in the popular opera
"Girofle-Girofla." The orchestra is of
good size and doubtless thoroughly familiar
with the music of the opera.
Sons of Temperance.
A new division of Sons of Temperance
was instituted in Wallingford last evening,
Perseverance division No. 12. Rev. W.
W. Clark, the Grand Worthy Patriarch, was
the installing officer. The officers are as

Conductor; Mrs. George L. Sanford, Past

Short In XEls Aeeounts Shoots Himself
in the Head The "Wound Not Neces
sarily Fatal.
William L. Killenbeck is a yonng man who
has been employed by Goodrich & Co., man
ufacturers of car trimmings at No. 171 Goffe
street. He belonged in Waterbury,. and it is
understood was employed as bookkeeper for
the firm. He did not appear at his place of.
business yesterday and sent word that he
was sick. Mr. Goodrich in looking over the
books came" to the conclusion that there was
a discrepancy in Killenbeck's accounts., and
went to his boarding house at 102 Meadow
street and rang the bell. The call was
answered by the yonng man himself, who ap
peard bareheaded and in his shirt sleeves.
Mr. lioodnch stated to tne young man that
there was a slight discrepancy in his accounts
which he would like to nave nim explain,
Killingbeck replied, "I will go np with you,"
and. as Mr. Goodrich supposed went back to
get his coat and hat. . Soon after the report
of a pistol was heard,- and Mr. Goodrich,
fearing that the young man had committed
some rash act, called Officer Laughlin, who
entered the house and found that Killenbeck
had shot himself with the intention of com
mitting suicide. After entering the house
he placed a revolver to his right ear and dis
charged it. The ball took a downward and
inward course and lodged near the base of
the brain. Dr. Mailhouse was first summon
ed and afterwards Dr. F. H. Whittemore was
called. The doctors gave it as their opinion
that while the wound was serious it was not
necessarily fatal,
Incendiary Fire In Naugatuclt Nar-
- row Escape
: The building occupied by the Naugatuck
Enterprise was on fire yesterday morning at
2:30. The factory whistle gave the alarm,
and in less than eight minutes the Glove
companv's' fire department had a stream of
water playing on the fire, which was quickly
subdued: -'Investigation showed that the
building had beeh broken open and various
articles of furniture and printing" material
scattered about .botli inside and outside the
building, which had then -been set on fire in
several places. The inside of the building is
a complete wreck, and but for the prompt
action of the fire department much damage
to other property must have been caused, as
the building is in close proximity to the
bottling works of May & Richards and to the
works of the Glove company.
Fire Parade. "
The new fire alarm system of South Nor
walk went into operation on Saturday. On
Teusday evening the firemen will parade and
give an exhibition of the alarm and water
The Effort to Nominate Him By Ac
clamatlon Likely to Succeed No
Doubt About His Acceptance Hon
E. W. Seymour, of Litchfield, For
Chairman of the Convention.
Hartford, Sept. 1. The representatives
of the Democracy of the State of Connecticut
are gathered at the Allyn House this even
ing. The preliminaries for the State con
vention which is to be held in Allyn Hall
to-morrow morning at 10:30 have been ar
ranged and unless there is more opposition
than has been developed at this writing the
"old ticket" will be nominated. The De
mocracy seems to have a great liking for old
tickets, and Governor Waller has cunningly
brought about that feeling in this State by
following "Sam" Tilden's scheme of declin
ing beforehand. Whether he really imitates
Governor Tilden in the sincerity of his posi
tion remains to be seen. But the delegates
to the convention that meets to-morrow be
lieve that he will accept, and they are going
to nominate him by acclamation unless de
velops opposition from Windham and
Litchfield counties. And in all likelihood
"Tom" Waller will accept the nomination in
one of those modest, gracefully-turned and
glowing speeches for which he is now -famous.
That is the probable outcome of the
convention as nearly as can be gathered from
the appearances of things to-night
There was opposition to this scheme-in Tol
land and AVindham counties in the caucuses
to-night, but it was pretty effectually squelch
ed by the Waller managers. The rest of the
ticket will be nominated probably with the
exception of Hon. Thomas Sanford, of Red
ding, for comptroller. There are at least two
lively aspirants for that position, besides
Mr. Sanford, who has his friends who say
that he ought to be nominated on the old
ticket if any man had. Charles N.Allen, of Put
nam, is backed by Tolland and Windham
counties. Senator Joseph D. Plunkett, of
New Haven, has been making a lively canvass
and his friends say he is sure
to go in. It really seems as if he might,
Lawyer Edmund Zacher, Governor Waller's
private secretary, has friends who are urging
the use ol his name lor Secretary ol btate.
He has a working chance and may develop
unlooked-for strength in the convention. His
nomination, it is thought, would strengthen
the ticket among the Germans and the Dem
ocrats need to make all such bids possible.
The State Central committee held a meet
ing. this evening and voted that when
Hon. James Gallagher calls the conven
tion to order the name of Hon. E. W. Sey
mour,of Litchfield, be proposed for temporary
chairman and (Jimton W. (Jowles of Man
chester, Fred. J. Brown of Waterbury,
A. E. Morrison of Windham and James L.
Hunt of Eidgefield for temporary secretaries,
They will probably be made the officers of
the permanent organization.

of Middlefield.
The New Haven county caucus dodged any
expression of opinion on the State ticket. A
committee of three was appointed to confer
with a committee from Middlesex county in
regard to electors-at-large. A motion was
offered to support James Reynolds, of New
Haven.and Samuel Simpson.ol W ater bury.lor
electors and was tabled. .New London county
voted to support the old ticket. The name
of Hon. E. S. Foster, ol rCedding,was ottered
for comptroller m Fairfield county's caucus,
but Mr. Foster withdrew. The name of
Hon. Thomas Sanford was then presented
and it was voted to support him. Litchfield
County voted to support Charles R. Ingersoll
and George S. Bumner provided Mr. In
gersoll would accept the nomination. The
caucus adjourned until 9:30 to-morrow morn
ing until Mr. Ingersoll can be heard from.
There is no doubt, however, that Mr. Inger
soll is out of the race. Had he not positive
ly expressed hinself to that effect.
he could have been nominated. Fairfield
countv will support the old ticket straight.
All the counties nominated committees to
serve on various general committees.
A conference of the men who are manag
ing Senator Plunkett's and Charles N.-Allen's
canvasses for comptroller had a conference
late this evening, and it was understood that
Mr. Allen will withdraw and leave benator
Plunkett a clear field.
The probability of ' Governor Waller's de
clining has scarcely been considered to-night.
JTig friends say he will surely accept if it
comes by acclamation.

. Alderman Coffee strenuously objected to
this petition and moved its indefinite post
ponement. In discussing his motion he said
fW. ia citv had no right to dispose of pub
lic property in this way. He said that a
bad precedent was adopted when Trinity
church was granted permission to extend
their church edifice. He thought these
privileges should be stopped at once.

The Steamer Philadelphia Excursions,
The steamer Philadelphia has carried
very large number of passengers this season.
and has proved a great accommodation to the
public. A pleasanter trip than this to the
Thimbles and return it would be hard to devise
one more replete with attractive scenery by
sea and land. People from a distance taking
the trip for the first time: are loud in praise
of it, and think that New Haven people are
fortunate in this opportunity, and many are
the city people who coincide. The few more
trips yet to be made this season will no doubt
be well patronized, and they now areparticu
laxly desirable for family parties.

Humor In the Stomach.
Much of the distress and sickness attribu

causes is occasioned by humor m the stom

by this medicine are so wonderful that the
simplest statement of them affords the best
proof that it combines rare curative agents.

New Dress Goods are arriving daily not in large quantities but enough of them to
satisfy the present demaand. One thing about these early arrivals that attracts is the low
prices at which they are offered. We bring them in now to help sell the Summer stock on
hand, that has been already reduced to half cost, and of course the new goods must be
marked low, or they would be out of place.
We are offering an English Cashmere (made in this country), 30 inches wide, in all the
new colors, at 13c; real value 20c.
And a fine English Body Cashmere, (this one is imported), 36 inches wide, all new

Also an Extra Fine English Body Cashmere, (came across the water with other), 40
inches wide, 33c; usual price 50.
43-inch Ladies' Cloth Suiting at 50c.
54-inch Ladies' Cloth Slitting at 75c.
