Good Trotting and a Laree Attend ance Scenes At the Town Hall General Interest In the Display Many Noteworthy Incidents or the - Day. - The second day of the State fair was as pleasant and agreeable as the first, and the present indications are that the fair will not be broken np by a rain storm as two years ago, and the prospects now are a grand sac- cess. Early yesterday morning the officers were on the grounds arranging every detail, so that the exhibitor and the sightseer could not complain. The exhibitors were all busy arranging and rearranging their exhibits to show to the best advantage. The attendance at the park was over 5,000 persons and about 800 teams, and a more orderly crowd never gathered in the park than there was yester day. The poultry exhibition was the largest ever given at the State fair, and some of the rarest fowls were on exhibition. The largest exhibitors of pigeons were the Diamond Poultry yard of Bridgeport, (Seeley & Pat terson, proprietors), showing 72 pair. A new imported breed of geese known as the Langshang, a black fowl, were shown by Seeley & Patterson of Bridgeport, . and C. P. Hobart of Southington. In a large tent were shown a large variety of labor-saving farming implements from the leading manufacturers of New England, R. B. Bradley of this city having an exhibit. In this tent was where the farmer could be found and he was sure to linger until every point on each machine was explained, A notable attraction was the famous stal lion Buckingham and his get, among which was a handsome pair over 15J hands high.

The second heat was easily won by Ace of Spades, although in scoring he was in the rear, but took the pole after the first half mile. In the third heat Ace of Spades took the pole and won the heat easily, his driver holding him in as he did in the second heat and nearly walking him under the wire.

The Town Hall is as heretofore the center of attraction for ladies. The galleries present an array of elegant fabrics, nearly every ex hibit having a special point,as the exhibitors will tell you, above its competitor. The exhibits are principally from Meriden and the near towns. The vegetables are shown in a tent erected on the lawn adjacent to the building and one can see apples, pears, plnms, grapes, potatoes, beats, turnips, cab bage, onions and in fact everything that one can find in the garden and specimens as the judges say that excel any exhibit ever given at the State fair. E. M. Ives, E. A.- Birdsey , L. Birdsey ,of Meriden, and E. C. Hall, of Berlin, are the chief exhibitors. The man ufacturers of Meriden all make large exhibits as well as the merchants. One particularly attractive feature at the hall was the stage where floral exhibits were made. NOTES. Between the races at the' park the Hay ward hand-grenade and the Har den hand-grenade were exhibited, a fire being built and extinguished. At two trials the Hay ward has done its work as effectually as the Harden with less gren ades. A lady fell down the stairs at Town Hall yesterday, severely bruising herself. No bones were broken. The officers of the association are highly complimented on the way theyhave attended to the details of the fair. A lady returning from the hall at early evening was hit by a stone in the head.

Application or the United Society To Uulld an Addition to Their Chnrch on the Green Voted To Recom mend. - The Committee on Squares held a meeting in rooms 10 and 11, City Hall, last evening, Alderman Piatt presiding. The principal business before the commit tee was to hear the petition of the United or North church to build an addition to their church edifice on the Green, which is to ex tend about thirty-five feet to the rear of the present building and to be of the same width. Walter B. Law was the first to advocate the. petition. He read from ancient records to show that the church hod a right to occupy the ground where the- church now stood. He said that the enlargement was absolutely needed for Sunday school purposes. . Judge L. E. Munson and William B. Franklin also spoke in favor of the peti tion. Eli W. Blake said it was a question wheth er the Common Council had a right to give away the public lands for churches or any other purpose. He questioned the right of the Common Council in giving Trinity church even the right to build a chancel at the rear of their church, although it was claimed they had this right. He said if the city had a rierht to give away public land they had right to give it away for manufacturing pur poses as well as tor cnurcnes. tie saia ne rep resented otuer property owners as well himself. If a building was put up as pro posed then the property on the street oppo site will depreciate. He hoped this com mittee would pause long before they gave away ony of the squares for public pur poses. Dr. Carmolt opposed the project of adding any buildings to the public squares, tie said if this privilege was' granted there was no knowing where the matter would stop. George W. Curtis favored the grant to the United church, as it would bring the Third church, now used for Sunday school purpo ses, into market, which would be taxed and bring a-revenue to the city thereby. In executive session it was voted to recom mend that the petition be granted. There was a tie vote on the motion, which was dis solved by the chairman. In regard to the petition for the removal of stone posts at the walk entrances to public squares it was voted to recommend that the petitioners be given leave to witnoraw. The petitions for the removal of the present bond stand on the Green and the erection of a new band structure at a cost of $1,200 in front of the Center church were both tabled for future consideration. THE SCHOOL TAXES. Adjourned School Meeting: at Loomis Temple of Music A Three Mill Tax Ordered. The adjourned school meeting of the New Haven school district was held in Looinis' yesterday morning. Charles K. Whedon acted as moderator. L. W. Sperry introduced a vote ordering that a three mill tax be laid on the rateable estate of the school district of New Haven on the grand list. George Hotchkiss, 2d, moved to amend by making the tax two and one-half mills and was seconded in his motion by Frederick Botsford. Harmanus M. Welch said that the schools could not be run for much less than three mills. The district owed $85,000 and if any money was saved on the three mill tax it would be used to reduce that debt and it was thought that between $15,000 and 20,000 could be paid. Mr. Welch said that none of the money would be squandered. Mr. Hotchkiss obtained the floor and said that as he understood it the Board had been raising the salaries of feochers. "I don't be lieve in running the High school," he said. "I think it ought to be a common school. To pay a salary of $3,000 is like drawing blood out of the taxpayers." Mr. Botsford in seconding Mr. Hotchkiss' amendment said that the school system should be run as economically and on the same plan as a private enterprise. The peo ple were overburdened with taxes and it was driving business industries away from New Haven. Maier Zunder replied by saying that he was as much in favor of economy as any tax payer. As a member of the Board of Edu cation he could say that as much economy had been practiced as anywhere else.- He referred to the fact that two new schools would be needed shortly; one in the Win chester and the other in the Washington district. He deplored any step that would interfere with the education of the children, or the usefulness of the High school where so many girls were educated. "I believe that the citizens of New Haven think a great deal of their children," said John G. North, "and I know a good many people who come to Ne"w Haven on account of our good schools. If there is to be any economy don't let it be on the children. If you are going to scrimp the children you are going to make poor citizens. If you take care of them and educate them yon will haVe good citizens and good mothers." Joseph D. Plnnkett spoke earnestly in be half of the High school and the great good accomplished there. Those who spoke about economy had not, he thought, given the mat ter the careful investigation it deserved. If there were any charges of extravagance against the members of the board they ought to be made at the meeting. Ja. W. Sperry thought it was a good thing to discuss the matter thoroughly, but he thought that the Board of Education should be sustained. After one or two others had spoken on the subject the question was called for. Mr. Hotchkiss' amendment was voted down and a three mill tax was ordered laid. The bonds of the treasurer and collector were placed at $40,000 and the board was authorized to expend not over $3,000 for a school lot in the Winchester district. Alderman Spreyer then introduced the following: Voted That the Board of Education pro cure direct from the publishing houses all books required by the scholars of our pnblio schools, and furnish the same through the several principals or the secretary of the board to the parents or scnoiars as coss price. Mr. Hotchkiss moved to table and Mr. Zunder said he thoucht it would a pretty ex pensive undertaking, as the services of sev eral clerks would be required. Mr. Plnnkett obtained the floor ana saia that the resolution of Alderman Spreyer was one that ought to be referred to the board. He made a motion to that effect and it was carried, after which the meeting adjourned. Prominent. Citizens Address the In- geraoll Phalanx. - The Ingersoll Phalanx held a public meet ing last evening.- Ex-Mayor L. W. Sperry was chairman. The meeting was addressed by Mayor Lewis, J. B. Sargent, Joel Sperry and L. W. Sperry. Mr. Sargent occupied an hour in advocat ing free trade and arguing that under high protective tariff the workingmen were-cnt down in their income bo that manufacturers can compete with British - manufacturers.

The Customary Rush Just Before the Opening: of College The Freshmen Overcome by the Members of the Sophomores. In the usual way, according to the good old custom, the two lower classes of the academical department of Yale college met on the Hopkins Grammar school grounds -on High street lost evening torformally open the college year by a free for all fight, in which clothing was torn, hats were stamped upon, faces were clawed and bodies squeezed and yanked about and thrown down into the mud dy grounds to the intense satisfaction of a large crowd of students,several townspeople,includ- ing some women and two policemen. The rival bodies were massed together, the fresh men being assisted by upper class men who were solicitous for their welfare and who gave that incitement without which these rushes would go the way of other barbarous customs and become a part of the college traditions. Whenever the interest lagged the upper class man was on deck to renew the struggle by calling on the freshmen to go in. The freshman, when he went in, found him sel seized by seventeen sophomores, each one of whom obtained a firm grip upon some part of his person and straightway commenced pulling in his own peculiar way. After be ing flung back and forth in that way the freshman genearlly closed and embraced some three or four of his burly assailants in the endeavor to throw them down upon the pavement. But rarely did the freshman succeed in his laudable endeavors. The fight was prolonged and continued down High street to the campus, ana tne oattieneia was strewn with tresh- manic remains. Alter the scrimmage was over and the rushers, wrestlers, pullers and tearers had departed to the seclusion of their college rooms to join the wise members of the faculty in innocent sleep, srnoll boys went about with a lantern gathering up fallen treasures. Two of them quarrelled over the possession of a nice new freshman hat, when two policemen came along and tola the poor little boys that they would have to arrest them unless they stopped making so much noise.

A good deal has been said lately about Auction Blankets, as if the mere fact that certain goods were bought "at auction" were a sufficient guarantee of their cheap ness. We have seen lately quantities of dry eoods sold under the hammer at prices act ually higher than we had ben paying for the same goods for weeks before. . The great thing is to buy your goods at the right mo ment, and we have done it with regard to Blankets this year again. We now offer Blankets at lower prices than those dealers paid who bought at the early Bales. The eoods will probably be delivered this week, but in the meantime our stock in hand is all marked at correspondingly low figures. There is no advance in prices as some adver tisements pretend, but rather lower prices than before. J. JN. Adam ot Co. Genuine Rubber.'
