Burglars entered Moshier & Mead's store,

burglars got through the transom over the
door of John H. Ray's store, took some re
volvers, spoons and pocket knives, unbolted
the front door and went out that way. The
burglaries are supposed to have been the
work of boys.

demand for bounties finally made the Select
men of the two places aware that they were
paying double and put a stop to the bounty
system on that basis.

Dickinson, one of last year's graduates of the
Tale Theological seminary, is now taking a
post-graduate course here and he has been se
cured to preach at ths Nash street branch and

State The. Bis; Parade In This City
To-tlorrow Night Celebrations and
Parades The Branford Salute.
Although it is conceded that it is possible
that Cleveland msy not be declared elected,
according to the reports from New York, our
Democratic brethren are having a good time
all the same in the way of celebration. The
arrangements for the Democratic jubilee for
to-morrow night in this city are being rapid
ly perfected. They expect to have one
thousand mounted men in line under the di
rection of the Old Guard and the business
men will have one of the finest bands in New
fork. Governor Waller and staff and the
mayors and other dignitaries from several of
the cities of the State will be present. Gov
ernor Waller and staff will review the proces-
The reception committee will be made
up as follows: Jdayor U. U. iewis, ex-uov-
ernor James E. English, ex-Governor Charles
R. Ingersoll, ex-Mayor L. W. Sperry, ex-May
or J. B. Robertson, ex-Governor C. B. Bow-
Town Agent James Reynolds, Maiar
Zunder and John E. Earie. The headquar
ters of the committee will - be
at the Tontine Hotel. The Register says:
" All the Democratic campaign organizatione
of the city have reported to Colonel Healey
their intention of turning out in the great
demonstration. One of the new features in
the procession will be the broom brigade, an
improvised organization of young men, whose
arms will te Drooms. signuying ' tne clean
sweep, made by the Democrats. Another
contingent proposed was the coffin brigade.
Badges, banners and placards illustrating the
burial of the Brand Ola party were oraerea
by a volunteer organization that proposed to
. J . ,m 1 i e 1 " 1
turn out. xnese emuiems were ior juuiviu-
ual use, but the projectors of
the scheme had also engaged a hearse
to - add to their display. When
these arrangements were reported, however,
Colonel Healey told them that they could
have no place in the line, and the other
members of the committee on arrangements
endorsed his views. They considered that a
mock funeral pageant was offensive to good
taste on account of the painful associations
which it might call up in the minds of the
spectators, and vetoed the scheme with
mnch promptness and emphasis.
"The brewers of the city are to contribute
fifty teams, drawn by four or more horses
and with the wagons handsomely decorated
to Wednesday night's demonstration. The
Thespian club and the Register 'Chap
el club, tne latter Demg composed of em
ployes of the Register Publishing company,
have also reported for the parade. The
Chapel club announce that they will appear
in tne ranks witn ntty men.
"The appeal from the committees for con
tributions of refreshments to entertain visit
ing organizations has elicited numerous
favorable responses. Still there will proba
bly be so large a number from outside the
city to be fed that a largely increased quanti
ty of donations in the refreshment line will
be required to make the managers feel alto
gether easy about properly discharging the
auties ot nospitauty. .baited beans and sand
wiches are donations which will be especially
acceptable."
The line of march has not been decided
upon and will be arranged to-day.
The Ingersoll Phalanx will have Colt's
band of Hartford for to-morrow evening,
and will probably go to Bridgeport

One hundred guns were fired in Middle
town on Saturday in honor of the Democratic
victory. Henry Rich and William H. Prior
were somewhat injured by a premature ex
plosion. The Democratic campaign clnbs
invaded Portland last evening.
The Democratic clubs in East Hartford cel
ebrated last evening by a parade in that
place. The Hancock corps (formed four
years ago) joined in the procession. There
was a general illumination by Democratic
residents along the route of march.
The Hartford Courant says: "A portion of
the local Democracy paraded the streets on
Saturday in celebration of the election (?) of
vj rover Cleveland, it was a unique proces
sion and carried one back to the davs when
the Ancients and Horribles used to parade on
the Fourth of July mornings. There were
upwards of 2,000 men and boys in the pro
cession. The campaign organizations, espe
cially the New Britain company, looked fair
ly wen, Dnt notning can be said in praise of
the remainder of the procession, as it was
largely composed of the hoodlum
elements, made additionally unattractive by)
uncoutn costumes. mere were numerous
banners so offensive in their wording as to
make many Democrats who saw ths proces
sion blush for their party. As a whole the
parade was an undignified affair, not even
approaching the level of a burlesque. Its
march was through the principal streets of
the city. A salute of one hundred guns was
fired from the west park. Some of the pa
raders in place of their nsual number six"
hats wore huge tiles evidently procured to
raeet the requirements of the next morning."
The Branford people hit upon a unique
plan. A salute was fired there the other
night with the understanding between both
parties that the party that should win should
pay the cost ox the performance,
The money has not yet been paid and both
parties are waiting.
COMMITTEE ON ENTERTAINMENT.
The committee on entertainment held a
meeting in rooms 10 and 11 City Hall last
evening. Julius Tyler presided, and A. R.
Good now was secretary. The committee re
ported that they had obtained the Union
armory on Meadow street in which to enter
tain the visiting companies from out of town
on Wednesday evening. The solicitors re
ported that an abundant supply of provisions
had been promised, and there was no donbt
but that all who came would be a amply pro
vided with refreshments. The commtttee
will meet again this evening at 7 :30 o'clock
at the same place in City Hall, and a full at
tendance is earnestly requested.
A DRY GOODS LEGION FORMED LAST EVENING.
A meeting of dry goods men was held last
evening in Whittlesey's hall, about seventy-
nve being present. A. club was formed for
the purpose of participating in the Demo
cratic parade to-morrow evening.

Trnth Which Is Not the Truth.
About 8 o clock last evening a party of
New York newsboys appeared on our streets
with copies of an extra Truth for sale. The
cries of "Great Excitement in New York"
and "The Grand Army of the Republic
Under Arms" soon attracted numerous buy
ers and the papers sold rapidly. The sensa
tional item which sold the paper was so evi
dently a canard that people who purchased
copies of the "extra" soon saw that they, had
been taken in. But the newsboys reaped a
HKTOll.
A Burglary.
A tramp who gave his name . as Thomas
Brown broke into Smith Brothers' oyster
house last evening and stole a can of oysters
and was arrested with the same in his pos
session. He was in the lockup for lodging
a few nights ago and begged the officer in
charge to send him to jail as he wanted a
place to stay for the winter. ' As there was
no charge against him his wishes could not
be complied with. This time, however, he
will probably be accommodated and may in
the end be sent to Wethersfield.

A PROPOSER NEW CKJIETEBY.
Another Voice on the Subject A Sim
ilar Project Some Tears Ago A Plan
Once Broached toy Mr. C. S. HEalthy.
A prominent New Haven gentleman writes
from New York as follows r Fifteen years
ago, a plan was submitted to a few individu-
als, which, if then it had been consummated,
would now have proved a blessing indeed.
The writer accompanied Mr. C. S. Maltby,
late of your city, through a certain tract of,
say, 200 acres, south of the Derby turnpike,
extending to a point where the Derby rail
road would intersect the land, and having
entrances from near the waterworks on West
Chapel street, besides others in various
places. Mr. Maltby then and there suggested
he feasibility and the appropriatenes of the
place for a future cemetery for New Haven.
He then controlled the property, and perhaps
does so to this date. It could have been had
for a comparative! small amount of money
for the purpose.
The clan suggested by Mr. Maltby was for
a few gentlemen to each become a purchaser
to tne amount oi iu,uw, to mue improve
ments suitable for the end in view and dis
TXse of lots as fast as required, requiring no
prone upon tne investment, Dnt to ds reim
bursed, principal and interest, when sufficient
sales should have been made to do so. The
late Edward A. Mitchell had consented to be
one purchaser. How many more Mr. Maltby
had in his mind was not known, but as we
all know Mr. Maltby does nothing by halves
it may be inferred that with his heart set
upon the project he would have acted with
his usual liberality.
It was understood tnat tne uatnolie cnurcn
would then have entered heartily into the ar
rangement, the Catholic grounds only to be
a distinct part ot tne cemetery, r nnerai
rjrocessions could easily have been conducted
over the Derby railroad (entrance at the
south end), while the distance even by- car
riages would not be farther from the city
than are many of the cemeteries of other
cities.
The idea was then impressed upon the
mind that such a resting place for the dead
might also become a resting place for the
dead of more than one town between New
Haven and Naugatuck.
The writer is not now aware wno is owner
of the property, but would suggest the wis
dom of the scheme and the locality to those
who have the matter in charge. There are
hill and valley, as well as forest, and also
nlentv of running water with which to flood
the valleys.
The German Suicide.
William A. Fauck, of Waterbury,
brother-in-law of Carl Guenther, the Ger
man who died at the- hospital Saturday
I night from the effects of laudanum taken to
kill himself, identified the remains at the
hospital yesterday. Guenther formerly
worked at A. Fehlberg's' butter store on
Congress avenue. He has an uncle named
August Bechsted living in Bristol, where he
formerly resided. He was unmarried. Sup
erintendent Starkweather informed Mr,
Bechsted of the affair last night. If he is
not disposed to do something about the
burial the remains will be buried by the
town.
PROBABLY RUIO-CRAZED.
A Fort TrnmDUll Soldier's Attempt
To Commit Suicide.
William L. Dutton, a soldier of the garri
son at Fort Trumbull, was before the Police
court last Thursday on a charge of intoxica
tion and was found guilty by the court, which
imposed a fine of $5 and costs. After his
release, upon payment of his fine, Dutton
was taken to the fort and confined in the
guard house. Saturday afternoon he was
taken from the guard house and while
being reprimanded by the command
ing officer for his conduct applied
most insulting and obscene epithets to him,
and suddenly breaking away, fled. A i
geant and two men were sent in pursuit and
succeeded in capturing uutton on tne track
between the fort road and the round house,
but as they were returning with him in cus
tody he again broke away and threw himself
m rront ot an approacning locomotive en
sine, with the intent of committing suicide.
He was caught by the soldiers and pulled out
of danger. The man's brain was probably
disordered by excessive indulgences m drink
which will account for his outrageous eon
duct towards his superior officer and subse
quent reckless attempt to end his life.
AN ESTEEMED MAN.
Death or
Prominent
Bridgeport
Physician.
Dr. Augustus H. Abernethy, one of the
leading physicians of Bridgeport, died yester
day morning, forty-six years old. He was
native of Torrington, Conn., and a son of
the late Judge Abernethy. His ancestors
came from Scotland, and settled in Branford.
He was a graduate of the Yale Medical
school. He entered the United States navy
in 1864 as assistant surgeon. In the fall of
1881 he was elected Representative to the
General Assembly. He held several offices of
trust and was a prominent member of the
Bridgeport Board of Education for about
twelve years. His death causes deep sorrow
among a large circle of friends. He was a
very exemplary, benevolent and useful citi
zen. His father removed to Bridgeport m
1848, and some years later built
the residence on Conrtland street
now occupied by Henry T. Shelton. Dr.
Abernethy had been tor two or three years
subject to paroxysms of pain in various
forms. About year ago he had a severe
attack of neuralgia in a horse car and had to
be conveyed home. At another time since
that he Buttered a similar attack. Ho tre
quent had become these attacks that his wife
became alarmed and did not allow him to go
anywhere alone, his son, about 9 years of
age, always going witn mm wnen visiting
patients.
Saturday mgnt lr. Abernetny experienced
a severe attack of pains and Dr. Hubbard at
tended. Sunday night he had another at
tack and Dr. Lauder was hastily summoned,
but before he arrived the doctor was dead
The cause is attributed to angina pectoris, a
certain form of neart disease. Dr.
Abernethy leaves a wife and three
small children one boy and two
girls. The funeral will take place
from Park street Congregational church at
2 o'clock .Thursday afternoon. Rev. J. G,
Davenport, of Waterbury, a former pastor,
and Rev. F. E. Hopkins, the present minis
ter, will ofliciate-. Drs. Hubbard and .Laud
er will be present as attending physicians,
and the following physicians will act as pall
bearers: Drs. Porter, Bill, Munson, bmith
Wordin, May, Shefirey and Cummings.
The luKersoIl Phalanx.
The Ingersoll phalanx go to Bridgeport to
night as the guests of the Young Men's Dem
ocratic club. Democrats there have a jubilee
and will paint. Bridgeport red if Fairfield
county can do it. Excursion rates will be
provided for all persons at 75 cents round
trip. Tickets at Osborne's store, No. 91
Church street. The Democratic club say
they will "stab the fatted calf" for their
guests. Honorary members and all will go.
For Wednesday night the phalanx have
invited the Merwin legion to parade with
them.
There has always been the kindest good-
feeling existing between these two organiza
tions and it was suggested before the elec
tion that the two companies should make a
joint parade when the battle was over. The
Merwin legion will hold a meeting to-night
to act upon the invitation.
A Hone's Kick.
An old reliable family horse belonging to
Nelson A. Luddington, of 234 Grand street,
kicked Mr. Luddington's fourteen-year-old
son Jesse m the right shoulder while he was
passing the stall Sunday evening. No bones
were broken, but the boy is very sick from
the effects of the blow.
Clergymen In the House.
The Winsted Herald says: "The election
of the Rev. Clarence H. Barber to the legis
lature from Torrington and of the Rev. John
P. Hawley from Stafford will enable the
House to proceed to business without delay
in case o&absence of a regularly appointed
chaplain. Both are men of superior ability,
and either of them can make a good speech
or a good prayer, whichever is most needed."
Comity commissioners.
The county commissioners were in session
at Ansonia yesterday and granted fifty-one
TinensAa in the town of Derby. The commis
sioners will be in session in this city to-day.
The Pint Keen Twlnrfe.
As the season advances the pains and
aches by which rheumatism makes itself
known are experienced after every exposure.
It is not claimed that Hood's Sarsaparilla is a
specifio for rheumatism we doubt if there is
or can be such a remedy. But the thousands
benefitted by Hood's Sarsaparilla warrant us
in urging others.who suffer from rheumatism
to take it before the first keen twinge.
Funeral of Edward Stevens.
A large number of sorrowing friends, in
cluding many of our leading citizens, attend
ed the funeral of the late Edward Stevens,
which took place yesterday afternoon at 2
o'clock from the residence of the family on
Wooster Place. The clock manufactory, with
which the deceased was so long and promi
nently connected, was represented by a dele
gation ot tne employes who attended m a
body. The services were conducted by the
Rev. Mr. Meserve, pastor of Davenport Con
gregational church, with which place of
worship the deceased had been identified for
years as a generous benefactor and worthy
member.' The pastor paid a touching and
beautiful tribute to the memory of the de
ceased and his sterling worth as a church
man, an employer and a citizen, and the
pastor's words gave suitable utterance to the
regard and esteem in which the deceased
was held. . The remains lay in a broadcloth
covered casket at the head of which was a
large pillow of ferns and roses, inscribed in
the center of which in purple immortelles
were the words "Employes of the N. H. C.
Co." Upon the lid was a profusion of eal-
las, ferns and roses, and at the foot upon a
small stand was a very beautiful bouquet of
enrysantnemums.
The bearers were ex-Governor James E.
English, President Hiram Camp of the New
Haven Clock company, ex-Mayor H. 11.
Welch and Messrs. F. W. Pardee, Henry
Smith, H. A. Harrison, B. H. Douglass and
Hugh Galbraith. The interment was ill Ev
ergreen cemetery.
Rev. Henry S. Kelsey, formerly pastor of
the College street church, this city, now of
Geneva, N. Y., is engaged in the insurance
business. v
' Death of Hon. James N. Lea,
A Wilkesbarre, Pa., dispatch of a recent
date said: "Hon. James N. Lea, formerly of
New Orleans but recently residing at .Lex
ington, Va. , died here this evening at the
residence of Hon. Charles P. Hunt. The de
ceased was one of the foremost lawyers of
the New Orleans bar before the war, and was
presiding judge of the Superior court of
Louisiana. He remained in the active prac
tice of his profession until the summer of
1875, when he retired and took up his resi
dence at Lexington, Ya. He is sixty-nine
years of age. He came north on account of
failing health six weeks ago. The remains
will be interred here on Wednesday. Balti
more American.
Hon. Mr. Lea was a graduate of Yale, class
of 1834, a classmate of the late Judge E. K
Foster of this city, and was highly esteemed
by many northern gentlemen. His memory
will be warmly cherished by a large circle of
friends. He attended Yale commencement a
few years ago and found not a few of his old
classmates here, while many had joined "the
innumerable caravan." During a visit to the
South some years ago Dr. Levi Ives of
this city, class of 1838, was a guest of Judge
Lea and very pleasantly recollects his host as
a most genial gentleman and influential citi
zen. The deceased is also .well remembered
by many other New Haven people.
Crushed by a Pile Driver.
Charles Garney, of Hartford, was crushed
by a pile driver yesterday. He was working
with several other men holding logs which
were being driven into the ground by a pile
driver, and in fixing the heavy weight which
drives the logs his hand slipped under the
weight and it came down, striking his right
hand and badly crushing it.

of Mr. French is always looked forward to
with great interest by those who are interest
ed m that style of entertainment and the
house is sure to be crowded with a delighted
audience.
THE SEVEN RAVENS.
The New York Times says of the "Seven
Ravens:" "It is praised by all who witness
it. As one critic says: 'It far surpasses all
previous plays of its class in the magnificence
of its scenery, the gorgeousness of its cos
tumes and the splendor of its ballet. Its
beauty is so transcendent that words inade
quately portray it; the pen may praise, but
not paint may commend, but not describe
it.' And this is true, especially of the ballet
led by the bewitching and incomparable JJe
Gillert." The piece is booked for an early
appearance uf Carll's Opera House.
BUNNELL'S HUSEUM.
This resort is evidently losing none of its
hold upon the public as the audiences both
afternoon and evening continue very large,
Last evening the house was crowded. New
curiosities in the "Hall of Wonders" are at
tracting much notice. The "Baby Venus"
is still admired by thousands. The perform
ance on the stage is excellent. The Humpty
Dumpty play is first-class. A number of
specialists of a high order appear before the
play. Tne admission price remains as be
fore, 10 cents.
GRUMBLERS AND GRUMBLING.
The Atheneum contained a fine large
dience last evening. A lecture upon "Grum
bling and Grumblers" was delivered by the
Rev. Dr. J. S. Chadwick, of New York. The
speaker was introduced by the Rev. C. B.
Ford, of the George street Methodist church.
The lecture was very entertaining. The
speaker illustrated by amusing anecdotes the
various uses and misuses ol language ana
showed how language is abused by chronic
grumblers. There was much sense and wis
dom and no little wit in the lecture, which
was closely listened to throughout.
THE OCTOROON.
The play entitled the "Octoroon" was pre
sented under the auspices of the Natibnal
Blues (Co. D, Seoond regiment) at the New
Haven Opera House last evening to a fair-
sized audience. The play in itself is a good
one and the company which presented it are
deserving of especial praise. Most of the
names of those taking part will be recognized
as the play was presented by local talent,
The acting of Miss Virginia Nelson as "Zoe"
was very good, as was also that of Mrs. Kate
Corey as "Peyton." Miss Annie French as
"Dora Sunnyside," a southern belle and heir
ess to Sunnyside, was all that could be de
sired, she showing herself entirely at home
onthe stage and an actress of no mean obil
ity and the applause she received showed her
to be a favorite. Mr. Charles Rafale, who
took the part of "Jacob McClosky " an over
seer, and Dr. Frank Gallagher as "Salem
Scudder." upheld their former reputation as
actors of good ability. Other members of
the company were F. H. Melrose", George
Butler. William W. Lycut, i rank Uarlm, T.
F. Gorman, Carl Parsons, John Blake, Henry
Doane, I. M. Garrison, K. 11. Williams, 11.
Parsons, Annie Palmer, Flossie Sanford,
Minnie Jerold and Rose Carlton. The com
pany as a whole was good and too much can
not be said in praise of them.
AMERICAN THEATER.
Over one thousand votaries filed out of the
American Theater about half-past ten o'clock
last night, after having passed a delightfuj
evening witnessing the first production of
the three-act musical comedy entitled "The
Boarding School." The audience unanim
ously pronounced the play first-class in every
respect. Judging by tne numerous expres
sions of approbation heard on all sides last
evening, crowding houses will be the order"
during the week. Harry Mack has arranged
The Boarding School," and under
the management of Mr. W. C. Cameron
it is presented to tne public in
such a manner as to reflect very creditably
upon the author and tne company. From
first to last the play is replete with comical
situations, and the musical and farcical
specialties give the tout ensemble a pleasant
variety. . . Miss Ellani, a young, petite and
vivacious soubrette, ably sustains the title
role. Possessed of enviable histrionic attain
TTiona and fascinating ways, she at once in
gratiated herself into the good favors of the
audience. Her representation of a spoiled
chjld is very well done. James B. Radclie,
Professor Jeremian uuuera, yu. u.,
D D. and N. G., keeps tne auaience m
roars of laughter. His musical specialties
nn,nr,fT Altogether the eonrnanv
is a fine one and well deserve a week of lib
eral patronage.
THE ELECTION TALK.
A monrnfnl Howl on" Chapel Street
A News Vender Unloads.
The talk over election continues the all
absorbing topic. Hundreds of men were out
on Chapel street last night to hear the news
and discuss the situation. Leading Repub
licans expressed themselves as quite confident
that the result would show that Mr. Blaine
received the most votes in New York State
and was legally elected President. Promi
nent Democrats and Republicans agreed that
all that there was to do was to wait and
many expressed the belief that the question
would not be settled to-day and might drag
along for a week or ten days yet." Early last
evening some commotion was created by the
stentorian shouts of a New York newspaper
vender, who was bellowing "All about the
riot in New York city. He rushed off quite
a load of New York papers and the buyers,
after a vain hunt, rightly concluded that the
riot was one of the news-vender's own inven
tion. New Haven gentlemen avowed their
readiness to shoulder a musket and march to
New York in case Blaine should be declared
elected and there seemed to be blood in their
eyes as they spoke, but up to a late hour last
evening all was duiet on the Potomac and the
feeling everywhere expressed on all sides was
that simple fair play in the case was all that
anybody ought to demand.
Dr. Bennett, of Bristol, is still very sick
and the proBpect of his recovery is poor.
Mrs. Caleb R. Barnum, living on the moun
tain road, Bristol, died Saturday morning of
apoplexy, aged 81. She got up and dressed
herself as usual, but while Mr. Barnum was
at the barn she fell and expired instantly,
just as her daughter reached her.
