OFF THE TRACK.
Shore Line Express Several
..Derailed No One Hart.
Cars
Yesterday afternoon the Shore Line ex
press due here at four o'clock ran off the
track in Fair Haven, near the Fair Haven
depot. The train was running on to a side
track to give -room for the passage of the
four o'clock Boston express from this city
and the track spread, causing the derailing
of three cars and the hind truck of the draw
ing room car. There was quite a commotion
on the train consequent upon the mishap and
s lady fainted in the commotion which
ensued. Governor Waller and P. A. Collins,
of Boston, both of whom
route to speak at a political meeting in
Bridgeport, were on the train. The Gov
ernor having been through the arduous cam
paign at Niantic so recently displayed great
fortitude and valor and calmed bis friend
from the Hub -by assuring him that it was
only another slight earthquake. The train
was delayed about an hour and upon the ar
rival of the five o'clock train from New
London the passengers bound west were
transferred to the train in waiting from this
city and the east bound passengers went off
on the hve o clock JNew London tram. A
wrecking train which had been Bent out
from this city sooq righted the trouble caused
by the accident. The scene of the accident
is the same where a similar accident oceurrel
a few weeks ago.

SPOT CASH.
Mr. M. B. Curtis appeared at Carll's Opera
House last evening in his second comedy suc
cess entitled "Spot Cash." The audience was
large and evidently enjoyed the piece and
Mr. Curtis' portrayal of the character of the
Hebrew drummer. He appeared before the
nrtain in response to hearty applause. The
play has little plot, but has many
funny situations. It is full of the "many wit
ty slang sayings and jokes common to the
drummer fraternity which provoke hearty
laughter.
EMMET.
Joseph K. Emmet, whose record places
him among the great comedians of the mod
ern age, will appear (only time this season) at
the New Haven' Opera House on Saturday
night, September 27th, in an entirely new
drama called the "Strange Marriage of
Fritz, or the Love of an Irish Girl." The
lay abounds with music, song and dance.
Ir. Emmet has written and composed sever
al new songs, which are equal to his great ef
forts of old. The organization carries an or
chestra of fourteen musicians with the best
company Mr. Emmet has ever had.
Bunnell's museum.
Again yesterday afternoon and evening
ladies and their little ones thronged the mu- I
seam where the daily additions increase the
interest. Not the least among the many fea
tures is a set of curiously cast mirrors that
in reflection distort the form to skeleton or
"f at man" at wilL The Howlett collection,
some twenty cases, now to be seen,is perhaps
the finest in this country and any naturalist
could find a month's enjoyment amongst
them. Some of Mr. Bunnell's foreign freaks
and strange animals have arrived in the
States and will in rapid succession be pre
sented at his New Haven museum. Mr.

Hendee Wins the Five Mile Race Sel
lers Head Him at the Finish, Bnt
the JTudffes Declare a Foal-Chambers
TV In a the Twenty Mile Race The
. Englishmen Go Off In a Muff.
There was a much larger attendance at
Hamilton " Park yesterday than on, the pre
ceding day. Both stands were well covered
with people, the number of ladies being no
ticeable. It was 2:30 o'clock When the races
were called. . The sun shone brightly, but
the wind blew directly up the home stretch,
precluding the possibility of fast spurts on
the end. . ;
The three mile race for the State cham
pionship was the first event. William Wait,
of New Haven, and H. E. Bidwell, of Hart
ford, were the only contestants.: Wait had
the pole. Wait took the lead and started off
at a good pace; leaving several lengths ."of
daylight between him and his opponent,
Wait kept the lead, but Bidwell closed up on
him. On the mile Bidwell spurted and
passed. He maintained the lead with Wait
close behind. On the fifth half Wait made a
spurt and passed him like a streak of light-
runs. From there to the finish the race was
closely contested. On the back stretch Bid-
well attempted to pas8,but Wait again spurt
ed. On the home stretch the face Was warm,
but Bidwell could not equal Wait's speed
and closed fully ten feet behind him. Wil
liam Palmer won the State ahampionship for
three miles at Hamilton Park last year. Wait
was also awarded a $50.00 gold medal. Time
9:24.
The five mile scratch race brought out
Hendee, Sellers, Hamilton and Hlston. Sel
lers had the pole, Hendee second, Hamilton
third, Hlston outside. On the start Sellers
took the lead, Hendee second, Hamilton
third and Dlatori fourth, with only a short
distance between them. All the riders took
it easy on the first half, sitting up straight
on their machines. On the first mile the
pace was very slow. On- ths second mile
Hamilton passed and got the lead. The pace
was almost a walk until Hamilton let out on
the back stretch.' Hendee kept just behind
Sellers. Hendee struck out on the fourth
half and got the lead, Sellers second. That
order was held until next to the last lap. On
the beginning of the last lap Sellers drew out
and cut in in front of Hendee, so that the lat
ter was obliged to throw up his feet and stop
for a second. He then did his best to win,
but Sellers by the unfair action had got too
much of a lead and won by about a length.
Hendee was second, Hamilton third and Hl
ston fourth. Hendee entered a claim of
foul, which the judges promptly allowed,
giving him the $50 gold medal for winning
the race. .Hamilton got second prize, a sil
ver medal. The time was lo:o4ti.
The judges announced that there would be
no one mile tricycle race, but that, Hlston
would try to beat the one mile tricycle record
of 3:05. This coming directly after the five
mile race in which he participated was a
decidedly plucky attempt. Hlston was
cheered enthusiastically. The mile was made
in 3:36.
On the three mile handicap Dr. N. P. Tyler
and William Wait started hrst, then ten
seconds aff er William Palmer, then H. E.
Bidwell twenty-five seconds after and finally
R. Chambers fifteen seconds afterward.
Chambers seemed to be quite a favorite.
Wait led all the way. Chambers did some
magnificent work, but was not in as good
form as the first day. He did not pass Bid
well till the last half. A fresh wind blew a
gale of dust in the riders' eyes as they came
down the stretch. Wait spurted and came
in in good form in 9:81 . Tyler finished
second, Palmer third, Chambers fourth, and
Bidwell last. The prize was a $25 cup.
The management announced that Richard
Howell, the Lnglish rider, was unwilling to
try to break the record of 2:39 for a mile be
cause ot the judgment against Sellers. Both
Howell and Sellers expressed themselves
very emphatically about the matter. Howell
said he would never appear on an American
track again. A race that had been partially
arranged between Hendee and Sellers for
next Monday, at Springfield, was broken off.
Howell and bellers left the pars: in high dud
geon.
The rules stated that a ton! is made when
a rider cuts in ahead of another withm a
wheel's length. Sellers' friends admit that
he fouled, but said he did not mean it, and it
was a small matter to throw him out for.
Quite a prevalent opinion was to the effect
that Hendee could not have won under any
circumstances.
The twenty-mile scratch race was contested
by W. C. Palmer, J. C. Lewis of Hartford,'
William Maxwell of Kockvme and It. Cham
bers or England. Maxwell is a senior m
Vale. He and Lewis had not appeared be
fore during the races. Palmer took the lead
on the start with Maxwell second, Chambers
third and Lewis fourth. Chambers got the
lead, but Jf aimer passed him and led at the
first half. Chambers led. in the next three
laps. Then Lewis forged ahead and led for
hve laps. Maxwell then led, but Lewis passed
him after one lap and kept the lead for three
laps. Palmer led for two laps, and then
Lewis regained the lead andkept it for seven
laps. Then Palmer led, and Maxwell on the
beginning of the thirteenth- mile got the
start, Calmer second, Chambers third.
Round and round the track went
the riders in that order until , the
last mile, when Chambers passed and
came in a winner by several lengths. A $50
gold medal was the first prize. The second
was a silver medal and the third a bronze
medal. Maxwell finished second. Lewis
was obliged to stop on the thirty-fifth lap
owing to the loosening of the seat of his bi
cycle and while he was out the others got
over a half mile start. He endeavored to
lessen their lead, but was unable to do so.
The consolation race, one mile, was won
by Lewis, of Hartford.
The Skating Rink Exhibition Fine
Riding by the Ramblers Leopold
Wins the Prize for Faney Riding
Splendid Feats by Pressy and I.e
ter.
Members of the New Haven Bicycle club,
clad in blue coats, white knickerbockers,
dark stockings and patent leather shoes.
flitted about the gorgeously decorated skat
ing rink on Dwight street last evening, seat
ing the fast-coming crowd that was gathering
to witness the exhibition given by the New
Haven Bicycle club. The audience filled the
.rink comfortably. The American band
played nearly continuously from 8 o'clock
until 11. The first event happened about
8:30 o'clock. It was the entree of the New
Haven Bicycle club. They came on, ten in
number, under the leadership of Captain
Benton, and their appearance and subsequent
evolutions evoked applause.
The Ramblers' bicycle club was the only
contestant for the $25.00 clock for the best
club drill by a club of eight members. They
were led by Captain Weed. Their drill was
a finished exhibition and their frequent ex
pert turns brought from the audience hearty
applause.
Master W. S Maltby, of Birmingham, was
the first contestant for the $25.00 silver cup
for the amateur fancy riding. He rode ex
ceedingly well for one who was making his
first attempt in public for a prize. He per
formed many of the feats done by Dan Canary
and finished- by mounting his machine while
it rested on two chairs. As he was riding off
on one wheel he fell and broke the handle of
his machine.
W. T. Rainey, of Ohio, a freshman in
Yale, was the second contestant. He did
not do as well as Maltby, failing in several
difficult feats.
Ed. A. Leopold, of New Haven, gave a
very finished and perfect exhibition. He
accomplished all the feats of his predecessors
and others not attempted by them, including
the mounting and riding his bicycle with
roller skates on, without making a break.
He was liberally applauded and was awarded
first prize.
The appearance ot .the professional riders
Pressy and Lester, who had been brought on
a special train, was the signal for loud cheer
ing. They were dressed in suits ot oiacx
velvet. They performed ditterent acrobatic
feats on the bicycle, riding two on one ma
chine, then on two machines. .Their exhibi
tion was concluded with an interesting game
of polo on skates: .
Mis Bionor Mayor Lewis awarded tne
prizes. Sellers did not appear tor his prize
won m.the ten-mile race Tuesday, he having
left town in disgust during - the afternoon.
Chambers was there and was loudly cheered
when he stepped forward to receive his
prizes.
Hendee - and Wait were 'also ap-
plauded.
Treasurer Thomas said last night that the
club would " probably come out about even
on the two days' exhibitions. The races
were not patronized as largely as they de
served, and the club were at great expense.
But they are to be congratulated upon their
management. The hi th annual races of the
New Haven Bicycle club were a great buc-

TEMTH WARD BEFCBLICANS
A Grand 'Mauss Meeting In the New
Wigwam Singing By the elee Clnb
An Enthusiastic Gathering Elo
quent Addresses.
A grand mass meeting of Republicans and
their friends was held in the Republican
wigwam at the corner of Dickerman and
Sperry streets last evening. The hall was
finely decorated with flags and splendidly
lighted with gas. The building was packed
with earnest searchers after truth and they
paid strict attention to the speakers through
out the evening.'
The meeting was called to order by Hugh
Dailey, who introduced Lynde Harrison as
president of the evening. Mr. Harrison on
taking the chair made a few remarks con
gratulatory to the Republicans of the Tenth
ward for their enterprise in building such a
fine structure for campaign purposes.
The Republican Glee club, headed by Pro
fessor Chandler, entered the building at this
point and were received with universal ap
plause. They responded by singing a cam
paign song to the tune "Watch on the
Rhine." The club was encored and responded
with another song.
Mr. Dailey then introduced Professor Wil
liam K. Townsend, whoj he said would
speak on the private and public life of
Grover Cleveland, the Democratic candidate
for President.
Mr. Townsend commenced his address by
relating an anecdote about a man who was
called upon to ask the blessing, but who re
plied that he was so d d deaf that he
could not hear, and no blessing was asked.
Mr. Townsend, proceeding, said that he was
an Independent Republican, and then com
menced an elaborate eulogy of James G.
Blaine. Continuing he compared Grover
Cleveland to Barn urn's white elephant. He
said that the Democratic candidate was the
enemy of the soldiers, sailors and farmers,
and a traitor to the laboring men of his own
State. " The speaker said he would pass over
Mr. Cleveland's private life and moral char
acter. The speaker then went over the public
life of Mr. Cleveland, showing his charges
as sheriff which the speaker claimed were ex
orbitant. What shall We say of a man
who makes a profession of law and then
eoes to his friends and asks to be made
sheriff? As to bis ability one word.
It is a fact that Grover Cleveland
has never had a case before the Supreme
court of the btate of New York. He
noted for the bills which he signs and the
bills which he vetoes. He is called a reform
er, but he is nothing of the kind. The
speaker then called attention to some of
Governor Cleveland's appointments, which
he said were not in the interest of the peo
ple, but entirely in opposition to the work-
ingmen. JSir. xownsena quoted the various
laws which Mr. Cleveland had vetoed whils
Governor, which passed the Legislature
while he has been in office, including bills
for the benefit of soldiers and sailors. "He
had no sympathy, said the speaker, with
the men! who had fought for their
country. Mr. Townsend continued
in a similar vein, attacking the various vetoes
of Governor Cleveland in an earnest manner.
He charged Mr. Cleveland with being the
servile tool ef the English free traders and
gave facts to prove his assertion. The ten
ure of office bill as vetoed by Mr. Cleveland
was dwelt npon at some length. Finally,
said he, Mr. Cleveland is denounced by all
the workingmen's organizations, by the
Grand Army and all other organizations
with whom he has come in contact during
his gubernatoral career. He said the Rupub-
licans picked out a statesman for .President,
while the Democrats went for a dark horse
and they got a big dark jackass.
Mr. Townsend closed with a glowing eulogy
of James U. Blame, the Kepubliean candi
date for President.
Lynde Harrison read a telegram from John
A. Logan in which he said: "I will come to
Connecticut on my way from Massachu
setts." (Cheers.)
Mr. Harrison called for three cheers for
Blaine and "Black Jack Logan:" Then
cheers were also given for Henry B. Harrison
at the suggestion of Mr. Dailey.
Colonel A. D. Shaw was then introduced
and made a very spirited speech. He re
ferred to the late Governor Buckingham in
glowing terms, to Hon. Henry B. Harrison
and other prominent Republicans of Con
necticut. Proceeding, the speaker took up
the question of labor and said he had
great sympathy with the working-
men, ue then referred to his six
years' residence in England and said
that much had been done to benefit Ireland.
and which he hoped would be continued in
the years to come. The speaker then took
up the tariff question, and said that the in
ternal revenue taxes in England were exorbi
tant and yet they called it "free trade Eng
land." The colonel then expatiated upon
the plan of England to increase in wealth
and power, which, he said, by their internal
revenue system had greatly enriched them.
He continued at great length in a similar
vein, aad then compared the plans of Eng
land with the protective tariff system of the
United States, and said that the American
workingmen were the happiest people on the
face ot the globe.
stand up, said the speaker, for American
labor. 1 love that word "protection" be
cause I am an American. In conclusion the
speaker said that everybody in England
would be pleased with the election of Grover
Cleveland on account of his free trade prin
ciples. He said the manufacturers knew
what they wanted better than the lawyers
and professors in our colleges. He also
quoted facts and figures showing the value
of the products of Connecticut farms and
factories, which he said came from the sys
tem of protective tariff. What is wanted in
this country is skilled workmen,
who " will benefit the country bv
honest toil. The hands of workmen have
made this great nation, and all over itjwe see
tne monuments ot weaitn and power. This
contest, this year, is important. Every work
man needs rest and quiet. I have not a
word to say about either candidate. I have
nothing to say about dragging down either
candidate in filth and dust; but I believe
the best interests demand that the Repub
lican candidate for President should be elect
ed. The meeting was closed by the Glee club
singing "Hurrah for the Union."
His Throat Cut by a Horse.
Jack Hollahan, a hostler at Camp's stable,
New Britain, had his throat cut by a horse
Tuesday. Hollahan was leading the horse
by a halter and the horse was rearing. Sud
denly wheeling around the animal let fly his
heels and struck the hostler in the throat.
cutting one severe gash entirely across the
throat and another gash, lower down, two
inches wide. By prompt medical attendance
the man's life was saved.
James Graham Plumed Knights.
The active members of the West Haven
Blaine and Logan club at a meeting held
Tuesday evening unanimously voted to adopt
the name of the "James Graham Plumed
Knights." About forty members were meas
ured for their uniform, which is to be a
blue coat trimmed with white cord, white
pants with blue stripe and block leggins.
The hat will be a white helmet with red
plume. They will carry the gun torch. The
next regular drill of this command will be
held this Thursday evening.
Campaign Notes.
The Stratford Republicans were addressed
at the Town Hall last night by Hon. N. D.
Sperry of this city and E. Emory Johnson of
East Haddam.
The Hon. Oliver Hoyt has "been elected
president of the Blaine and Logan club of
Stamford.
A BepubUcan mass meeting is to be held
at Brookside Park, Bedding, Saturday.
Among the orators expected are Senator O.
H. Piatt and Judge J. B. Guillman.
Senator Plunkett, of this city, expounded
Democracy to the Westport Democrats at a
rally of the Westport un terrified Tuesday
evening. The Bridgeport Standard says:
Mr. Plunkett, the great advocate of the
bill for 'The regulation of the sale of bread,'
(which was lost,) and who really thinks he's
got a chance to be elected comptroller. In
stead of talking sense, he descended to polit
ical clap trap and for the space of one . hour
and twenty minutes by the watch harangued
before his hearers in the vain attempt to vil
ify the name and character of James G.
Blaine. He digressed long enough to de
dounce the Irish World for its advocacy of
Republican principles at this time. With
many present it was difficult to understand
how a head so well developed as Plnnkett's
evidently is has so little in it, politically
speaking. At the close of the Senator's ad
dress Mr. Bernard Keating, of Bridgeport,
made a respectable Democratic speech.
General Hawley addressed the Meriden
Republicans last evening at the City Hall.
He was escorted to the hall by the Parker
guard, the O. H. Piatt and I. C. Lewis es
corts and tne cavatry uxiuoi juajm ujiu .

Captain Patrick O'Farrell, who has just
returned from Maine where he has been
speaking for Blaine and Logan, says that
eight out of every ten Irishmen in Maine
voted the Republican ticket . at the State
election.
BAILI IN BRIDGEPORT,
A Rousing Republican Meeting Ad
dress By Senator Piatt Great En
thusiasmThe ' Irish-Americans.
Bridqepobt, Conn., Sept. . 24. The Re
publicans of this city gathered in force at
Hawes' Opera House to-night to listen to the
discussion of the issues of the day by Senator
Piatt. Notwithstanding the fact that there
was a counter attraction at Recreation Hall
and Governor Waller was brought there to
be exhibited, long before the time for the
opening of the meeting there , was standing
room only. Hon. D. W. Kissam was chosen
to preside and after music by the band and
glee club he introduced the Senator, who
was received with a perfect Btorm of ap
plause. For nearly two hours he held the
closest attention of his audience and present
ed facts and figures which no amount of
explanation by Democratic orators could
weaken. In the audience there were many
Irishmen and men who had heretofore been
Democrats and it was .noticeable that
at every agasion to Blaine and ths
Republican party and the tariff plank they
were among the most vigorous of the ap
plauders. The Senator was followed by
Patrick O'Farrell.of Hartford, who delivered
a stirring address and advised his country
men to vote for the party who were in favor
of protecting them both at home and aDroaa.
It was the most successful rally of the cam
paign thus far, and among the audience
there were very few who were not voters.
Just before Senator Piatt began speaking a
Democratic torchlight procession headed oy
a band passed the opera house. If the af
fair was calculated to cause a stampede of
the audience to Recreation Hall it was
most miserable failure, as not a person left
the hall.
A Tame Democratic Rally Last
Night.
Bridgeport, Sept. 24. The Democratic
rally at Recreation Hall was a very tame af
fair considering the elaborate preparations
which had been made for it. There was
large audience, but more than half of
were women and boys. "Colonel" J. R.
Fellowes, of New' York, delivered one of his
noted harangues, in which he utterly failed
to advance any arguments why the Democra
cy should be entrusted with power. It was a
ranting effort of a demagogue. Governor
Waller was introduced and made a brief ad
dress.
Funeral of Mrs. Schneider.
St. Boniface church was filled yesterday
morning with mourners who had gathered to
pay the last tribute of respect to Mrs. Schnei
der, the mother of Rev. Father Schneider.
A solemn high mass of requiem was celebra
ted by the son of the deceased, assisted by
Rev. Father Gibbons of the Sacred Heart.
Father Moloney of St. John's and Father Me-
Givney of St Mary's. The choir, consisting
of Misses Mary Reynolds, Mary Krauss, Liz
zie Phleghar and Messrs. Charles Hauser and
Joseph Miller, sang with much effect "Sweet
spirit, hear my prayer." Father Schaele
spoke very touchingly in German of the good
qualities of the deceased, whom he eulogized
as one faithful in oil the relations of life and
a true and fervent Christian. The interment
was in St. Bernard's cemetery, the following
gentlemen actiniz as pall bearers: rTank
