or The Different Companies And Offi
cers And Individual Matches.
The fall shoot of the marksmen of the
Second regiment took place at
the Quinnipiao range yesterday. The day
was fairly adapted to the shoot. The wind
interfered somewhat with the day's work,
causing inaccurate shooting with many of
the marksmen who would otherwise nave
made better scores. The first event of the
shooting on the programme was the contest
at the 200 yards range, which began at about
9 o'clock. Companies B and C were the
first at the range. After these two com
panies had finished at the 200 yards range
and commenced at the 500 yards distance,
Companies D and I began with the 200 yards

A Credit to the City.
The largely increased prosperity of the old
established house of Monson, Carpenter &
Co. is a matter for congratulation. Never
wag their store more crowded with goods in
greater variety or in better selections, and as
usual the firm cater to the wants of the pub
lic with great and special success. As usual
silk goods are a specialty with this house,
and with their experience, and judgment
and facilities they supply absolutely reliable
silk croods at the lowest prices. In their
mourning goods department will be found
all the freaks of fashion as well as the more
staple goods. Crapes and Henrietta cloths
are a stronghold with this firm, and the
amount disposed of annually is something
For really choice dress goods in the way
of beautiful combination dresses, velvets,
plushes and fine cloths Monson & Carpenter
have no equal. This season's production is
even more extensive than ever and the varie-
tv of design and beauty of coloring well il
lustrates the taste shown in selection of the
Monson & Carpenter import many of their

THE LADIES' TO URNAMBNT
At the New Raven UwsClDb Grounds
Prominent Society Ladles or This
and Other Cities In the Contests.
The bright sun and blue sky yesterday
were gaily welcomed by the ladies who were
to engage in the tennis tournament at the
New Haven Lawn club gronnds. Especially
was the welcome Fxontaneons and hearty in
view of the dismal, beating storm of the night
before, which threatened a dull, spiritless,
rainy day instead of a bright one suitable for
the tournament. Great interest centered in
the tournament, this being the pioneer event
of the kind in this city, and a large and bril
liant audience assembled to enjoy it. The
contests opened at 11 o'clock.
In the singles Miss Martha White drew a
bar; Miss Annie Miller beat Miss Mamie
Lent, 4-6,6 2,6-2; Miss Violet Ward and
Miss L. Ives played an exciting contest, which
r snlted in the defeat of Miss Ward by a
score of 6-4, 6-5; Miss N. B. Trowbridge beat
Miss Davis by a score of 6 2, 6 2; Miss Lynch
beat Miss Davis, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3; Miss' Leslie
beat Miss Gilman, 6"0,6-l; Miss Kellogg beat
Miss Hudson, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2; Miss Griggs drew
In the second round singles Miss White
was defeated by Miss Miller by a score of
6 5, 6-2; Miss Griggs beat Miss Ives, 6 3, 6-2;
Miss Kellogg beat Miss Lynch, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3;
Miss Leslie beat Miss JN. a. Trowbridge, o-o,
6-3. The singles were-remarkably well
played and reflected great credit on the lady
players. The matches were exciting in the
extreme and the fashionables outside the
netting applauded the different points of the
games. Miss N. B. Trowbridge made many
pretty "moves" in her two matches in the
singles. In the contest between Miss Kel
logg and Miss Lynch many beautiful plays
were made and were accordingly loudly
clapped and applauded by the spectatois.
The third round -and final in the singles
will be played off, coming as the first con
tests, this morning. ;They will undoubtedly
be very eioiting and some good playing is
The matches in the doubles were com
menced in the afternoon. The first contest
ants were Miss Lent and Miss N. B. Trow
bridge and Miss Ward and Miss Dana. The
former after a hard fonght battle defeated
the latter by the soore of 6-5, 6 5. The next
match was between Miss Miller and Miss
Leslie as partners and Miss Dana and Miss
C. Trowbridge. The latter were defeated by
a score of 6-1- 6-3- Miss Trowbridge and
Miss Lent against Miss Miller and Miss
Leslie was a splendid match. The
players were apparently abont evenly match
ed and some beautitui points were made.
On account of the approaching darkness
playing was obliged to stop much to the dis
appointment of the spectators, who were
eager to see the splendid game piayed to the
snish. They will, however, nave tms op
portunity granted them to day, when the
match will be played off. To day, also, the
unfinished games between Miss bargent,
Miss Lynch, Miss Gilman, Miss Hudson and
Miss Ives. Miss White, Miss JLellogg and
Miss Lvnch will be plaved to a close.
Lady players from Philadelphia, Balti
more, New York, Staten Island and other
places are attending and taking part in the
tournament. They say that of all
tournaments they have attended the first
tournament of the Golden Slipper club is
undoubtedly the best in every respect. They
think the clnb grounds are excellent and the
plavmg particularly nne.
The prizes offered by the club are unusual
ly handsome, nnique and very appropriate,
First there is a beautiful repousse silver or
namental box, which will be given as nrst
prize singles. It was contributed by Mr. V.
Cady Eaton. For second prize singles there
will be a handsome silver buckle, an article
both unique in workmanship and very rare.
The buckle was contributed by Mr. jonn ji.
Heaton. He brought it from Paris. There
is also an appropriate special prize in the
In the doubles for a first prize there are
two sets handsome manicure sets of repousse
silver. They were presented by the gentle
men friends of the club. The second prize
in the doubles is a large standing lamp,
French pattern. The metal work is of ham
mered brass. The third prize in the singles
is a large bronze lamp for the gentleman who
plays in the mixed set to-day.
Tbe Mystery In Derby.
When the body of the man fonnd Thurs
day morning in the Honsatonic river nearly
opposite the Crof ut farm in Derby was taken
to the undertaker's rooms for a thorough in
spection by Medical Examiner Beardsley no
clue was obtainable whatever to the name or
whereabouts of the party. Usually the con
tents of a pocket betray a trace that ulti
mately leads to the identification. -There
was nothing determined by the closest ex
amination of the clothing. On stripping
the body Dr. Beardsley discovered on the
inner surface of the right arm about two
inches from the bend of the elbow a tattoo,
This was a cross, below which was punctured
r. .renders, . and Delow the name a scroll
and below that a figure, as nearly as could
be deciphered, of a bird and a fish. On the
inside of the left arm about three inches
from the wrist were tattooed the letters
P. P.- P., and on the.- chest were several in
delible marks which the doctor . proved to
have been artificially colored. From the
name and initials the medical examiner con
cluded that the man was P. Penders. This
evidence, however, did not prevail against
the testimony of four men who affirmed they
knew the man to be Owen Gibney, a brick
layer who had worked for Dwinnell, the
mason contractor, but who left town four
weeks ago. Of the four men one was
Joe Connors, who boarded the man, and
another was Andrew McEnery, who
had employed Gibney. It was presumed by
all that there could be no mistake as to iden
tity, but Friday noon John Gibney, to whom
Dr. Beardsley had telegraphed and who was
said to be a brother of the deceased, on view
ing the remains disowned any relation or re
semblance to the man. Gidney said that his
brother Owen was bald and had a dark spot
on the right wing of the nose, which marks
were not apparent. The clothes and the
leather strap around the waist were not such
as his brother wore when he last saw him.
John Gibney left for New Haven without the
body as his testimony was deemed to preiu
dice the identity of the party as ad
vanced : by those residing . in Derby and
Medical Examiner Beardsley is now awaiting
advices from Gibney, who will inquire after
his brother, who according to tbe last ac
count was , working in Jewett City. The
probability is that the body will be delivered
to the town for burial. The cause of death
is not believed to be foul play.- The medical
examiner studied the body very closely, and
after minute tests and a thorough review of
the facts determined that the man did not
come to his death "by the hand of another."

tor In Court Carrie Welton's mental
Characteristics Reviewed Before the
The Welton will case occupied the atten
tion of the civil side of the Superior court
yesterday all day again and will be resumed
Tuesday morning. Horace Johnson, whose
wife is a consin of the deceased Miss Welton,
was again nsed as a witness. The witness'
impression concerning the deceased was that
she was insane or on the verge of insanity.
The reason he did not tell everybody who
had asked him about Carrie that she was in
sane was because he did not think it wise or
proper to so do. Witness related that de
ceased once quieted a pair of excited, pran
cing horses in New York by standing before
them and putting her hands on their noses.
She told witness that she expected to see this
exploit recorded in glowing terms in the New
York careers. Witness said Carrie was some
thing of an artist. Carrie had charged her
mother with purloining small articles about
the house and with attempting to poison her
(Carrie). Concerning Carrie's nature witness
Baid she was dignified, ladylike, not perhaps
scornful, but had no associates and seemed
to care nothing for society. After she came
to witness' house there was only one lady
that called on her. She attended no social
gatherings nor did she go to church.
Lawyers O'Neil and Webster objecting to
the manner of cross-examination, Mr. De Witt
obiected to such interruptions.
The witness stated that Carrie's uncle
Timothv wrote her as follows: "If you be
lieve to be true these things that your mother
is reported to have said, they certainly have
no parallel in history."
"Carrie then remarked to me, 'Uncle Tim
othy is becoming tragic. '
Mr. Doolittle obiected.
"It is admissible as a declaration," said
A letter from "Aunt Jane," the mother
of the testator, was then read. The commu
nication, which is dated Waterbury, January
6, 1881, contained the following extracts
"Allen Johnson stated that Uarne came
over to her house almost terrified to death
and stated that her mother was going to put
her in an insane asylum. Who has terrmed
her? I have not. bhe thinks her mother is
her greatest enemy. Only think of a mother
and her daughter being separated. I have
always been willing to lay down all I have
for her. It is impossible for me to eat or
sleep. Why, no matter what they do, how
they persecute me and cause her to scorn
her mother, I shall love her still. Nothing
can wipe out my love for her."
Roderick Atwood, a farmer, testified to
Carrie's actions beimr queer and eccentric,
and that she had a strange eye and acted
The deposition of Phebe Carrington, of
Waterbnry, was read, it testined tnat motn-
er and daughter had appeared loving, but
that once when Carrie spoke of her father
her eye became full and glassy and had a
Dr. Alexander E. McDonald, of New York,
was the first witness to testify at the after
noon session. Dr. McDonald is superintend
ent of the City asylum of - New York, and
professor of diseases of the mind in the Uni

read a series of questions briefly summing
lip the characteristics of the late Miss Wel
ton, and asked the witness' opinion of such a
"I should indue she was a person of un
sound mind, and that the trouble began at
the period of change of habit, and change of
feeling towards tne mother. 1 should say
that the case was one of progressive char
acter, becoming intensified as it went on. 1
should consider the case one of permanent
form of insanity."
Mr. Doolittle then gave his version of the
character of Miss Welton and asked him if
he thought she was of unsound mind. He
thought she was not from that point of
