Ex-Governor Hoadley of Ohio, a native of this city, who was born near where the Sec- ond National bank now stands, and who, when he visited New Haven two or three years ago as ne of Yale's honored guests at commencement, was one of the prominent names talked of for the Democratic nomina tion for President, has sacrificed bis private fortune for a high sense of honor. The news of his noble course creates a big sensation in Ohio. A Cincinnati dispatch yesterday ays: Archbishop Purcell's failure for nearly $2,000, 000, all the savings of the poor parishioners, occur rednine ytars ago. and was the sensation of the Catholic world. The poor creditors have been ever since trying to get justice. Tne assignee, J. u. Mannix, had got together about $350,000 Irom the wreck. When pressed for settlement it was found he squandered the money in stock speculation. His bondsmen, John Holland, George Hoadley, Cnarles Stewart and M. Walsh, at once prepared to fight the case. At the meeting of the creditors to-day there was a great and angry crowd. The present archbishop was denounced as a treacherous dog and the priests as lazv hypocrites. Then came the greatest sensa tion of the failure. Ex-Governor Hoadley made a proposition to pay his portion of the assignees' de falcation, amounting to $32,600 cash. In addition to this he offered to turn over the stocks, sureties and mortgages Mannix had given him to insure him ajjainstlomaking altogether SlOS&X) as Hoadley's This will almost wreck Hoadley's fortune.

Conclusion or The Ladles Tourna ment At The New Haven Lawn Club Grounds Yesterday. Despite the threatening weather of yester day a large number of ladies and gentlemen witnessed the concluding games of the la dies' tournament at the New Haven Lawn club grounds on Whitney avenne. In the morning the finals in the doubles were play ed first, and in which Miss Lenta and Miss Trowbridge beat Miss Kellogg and Miss Briggs 0-1, 6 3. Then oame the third ronnd and finals in the singles, which resulted as follows: Third round Miss Miller vs. Miss Kellogg, 6-0, 6 0; Miss Leely vs. Miss Briggs, 5 6, 6-2, 6-3.

It was a brilliant society event. THE HISTORICAL SO CI EXT. Aa Interesting Paper by Rev. William G. Andrews, D. D. The New Haven Colony Histories! society's meeting at their fine rooms in the State House last evening was a f nil one. About 150 members and invited guests were present. Professor S. E. Baldwin called the meeting to order at 8 o'clock. The proceed ings of the last meeting, May 17th last, and a very long list of books and objects of in terest donated and loaned, were read by Curator G. Sherman. The subject of the evening was "The Trad ing Post at Paugassett," by Rev. William G. Andrews, D. D. , of Guilford, and was in substance as follows: In 1646 there was a Latin correspondence between Director Keift, of New Netherland, and Governor Eaton, of New Haven, with reference to a trading house established by the New Haven mer chants, of which the Dutch complained as prejudicial to their trad) with the Indians or the Hudson. This post, Paugassett, has been variously placed at Derby, near Stockbridge, and at Springfield. The object of the paper was to show that it was a little below the falls of the Housatonic in New Milford. Several lines ef proof, drawn from contemporary documents and from later sources, were traced, all leading in the same general direction, but the final and decisive evidence was fonnd in an Indian deed dated in 1671 and on record at Stratford, in which an isl and, evidently near the point above men tioned, is described as that where Mr. Ste phen Goodyear, deputy governor of the col ony, bad a trading nouse. ureait as given to the Rev. Mr. Oviatt, who has printed the Stratford deed, in one ef his books, though the author of the paper had reached his conclusion independently. Remarks were also made at the close of the meeting by the secretary, Thomas R. Trow bridge, jr., on the subject of the paper, and Prof. Johnson T. Piatt. Many stopped to examine the library and the beautifully lighted and famished rooms and many objects of interest after the reading. THE REPUBLICAN LEAGUE. New Haven Oct. 18, 1886.

ON THE HI CD FLATS. Busy Times In Building The Second Section of New Haven'a Boulevard Sewer. Stretching away for about 2,000 feet across the mud flats between Kimbeily avenue and Oyster Point, is a flooring about twelve feet wide, level as a floor and composed of three inch planking. It lies firmly fastened to heavy timbers which in turn rest upon spiles which were driven down until they struck the solid earth and resisted the fur ther efforts of the spile driver to send them down any deeper. This long plankroad lies in the bottom of a deep ditch or canal dug in the mud flats, and upon it will rest the big brick sewer six feet in diameter, which is the second section of New Haven's boule vard sewer. This section will extend from Kimberly avenue to the solid ground at Ova ter Point, forming there a junction with sec tion No. 1 of the sewer. The cost of this section will be about $40,000. It is one of the most difficult pieces of sewer work to build that has ever been constructed in JNew Haven. The many difficulties in the way are being very successfully surmounted by the contractor, Captain Lawrence O'Brien, and the work is being prosecuted upon the original plan thought out and devised by him for the consummation of his contract. Having the tides to contend with, the great volume of water emptied into the branch daily, was an important obstacle. This was overcome by digging a deep wide ditch to connect with the harbor water at lowest tides. Through this channel the trench is drained daily, and without the expensive aid ol steam pumps. Work was prosecuted at high tide and dur ing the meadow overflow as far as possible by the use of floats or ratts, upon wmcn tne spile-drivers were "toted about" to where they were wanted and could do the most good. Also by means of the outer passage way the spiles, of which about 2,000 were nsed, most or tnem comlngtrom IN ova Scotia, were floated to wnere tney could be pnt into the power of the spile drivers. Also through this channel were brought in small crafts the many loads of small white stones which are nsed in forming the ooncrete mass which is spread on top of the floor foundation for the bed of the sewer. This concrete sub stance is adjusted to fit the required shape of the bottom part or tne sewer, xc is a singu lar fact that the contractor was able to get from Long Island these white stones, which are similar to what the school boys denomi nate "white jackstones," at a less cost than to have unearthed tne common stones nere abouts and carted them to the sewer. The white stones are brought from the shores of Long Island nearly opposite New Haven and are found there in rreat abundance. To build section 2 of the boulevard sewer about a million and a half of brick are required. A large force of men is employed. The work of building the sewer is now far advanced and it will be done before the snow and ice come. For twenty years Henry F. Baloom of Shirley, Mass., suffered with rheumatism. He found no relief till he took Hood's Sarsaparilla. AN INTERESTING EVEN T. The President's First Reception In Kwlght Ball. Dwight Hall was prettily illuminated and tastily decorated last night on the occasion of President Dwight's first informal recep tion to all the members of the university. From 8 to 10:30 students kept coming in and ont of the building and there were but few in college who failed last evening to show their appreciation of the kindness and pleasure the president of the college had ten dered them. As each yonng man entered he was introduced first to the president and then to the many fair ladies who added a grace and ornament to the entertainment, and lastly to the many professors of the dif ferent department of the university. Then they strolled through the many beau tif ul rooms of the building and upstairs and through the main hall, where were scattered in profusion handsome cut flowers and where a spread was daintily laid ont before them. Dr. Stusckel presided at the organ and now and then enlivened the occasion by some masterpiece. The two hours and a half soon fluttered by and President Dwight's first re ception was over, leaviug the students and president more closely acquainted and united to one another. Among the many present receiving in eon cert with President Dwight and family were: Mr. Munroe, Richard Morse, secretary Y. M. C. A., Professors Peck and wife, Seymour and wife, Phillips and wife, Bendelan, Marsh, Brewer, Richards and many others. The ushers were as follows: For '87, Hand and Archibald; '88, Solley and Carter; '89, Mosle and Sage; '90, Baird and DeCamp; Sheff., Alexander; Law, Sanford '87; Theo logical, Mr. Thayer; giaduate, Mr. Brown '86.

It will be recollected that last fall and winter the LadieB' Aid society connected with Trinity Methodist Episcopal church, located at the corner of Dwight and George streets, gave a very interesting course of lec tures which were attended by large and in telligent audiences. Encouraged by that ef fort they have determined to give another and even more attractive course this season, and to this end they announce the following: On Wednesday evening, October 27, Rev. Howard Henderson, D. D., LL.D., a former general in the Confederate army, whose sub ject will be "The Swords of Grant and Lee." Dr. Henderson, who is a Kentuokian by birth, is said to be a most eloquent speaker, and this lecture is spoken of by the public press as "being a masterly production. The second in the course will be by Will Carleton (author of "Farm . Ballads") on November 3d, who will deliver his famous poem-lecture entitled "The Golden Horse." Mr. Carleton's reputation as author and lec turer is known the country over, and wherev er he appears he is greet ed with large audiences. On November 10th a grand concert is announced with- Professor F. A. Fowlsr as conductor, Miss Eintilie Schneeloch as soloist, a male quartette and a chorus of thirty-six selected voices, which will make an entertainment of uneqnaled merit. On November 17 Rev. J. O. Peck, D. D., will deliver by request his new lecture entitled "Pluck versus Good Luck." Dr. Peck's capabilities as a lecturer are so well known that they need no commendation from the press to insure him a crowded house on the night of his lecture. The last in the course will be on Wednesday, December 1, by Mrs. Margaret Custer Calhoun, the accom plished elocutionist and sister of the lament ed Gen. Custer, who was killed by the Sioux Indians in the Little Big Horn massacre. Mrs. Calhonn's husband was Lieutenant James Calhoun, adjutant nnder General Custer, and fell by his side in the masiaore referred to. The Pittsburg Dispatch has this to say of this gifted lady; "Mrs. Calhoun captivated her listeners by her wonderful interpretations of the charac ters she assumed. She is strikingly like General Custer in action, gesture and expres sion. She has his erect and magnificent carriage, his characteristio poise of head and his proud, firm, positive walk. It is no wonder, then, that she is so popular with the old soldiers of the Northwest, where she is almost idolized as the sister of Gen. Custer and the widow of Custer's faithful adjutant, Lient. .James Calhoun, who was killed at his general's side at the Little Big Horn fight." Mrs. Calhoun is a woman with an inter esting face, lovely figure and grace of move ment, all eloquent petitioners in her favor. She may be said to be a little above medium height, she has light brown hair, clear, dark blue eyes, a fresh complexion, vivacity of manner, and plenty of fire and force of char acter. . The price of tickets for the course will be 1, Single tickets 25 and 50 cents. BAPTIST MINISTERS. Fourth Annual Conference nd Slxty Thlrd Convention. The Rev. G. M. Stone, D.

While the officers were upstairs arresting these parties JameB Cunningham came in down stairs and attempted to clean ont the whole house, but fell into the arms of the officers.

McGrath was fined $10 and costs and Cunningham $20 for drunkenness and $5 for breach of the peace. AN INTERESTING LUOAI. POINT. An interesting point in legal practice was decided yesterday afternoon at the short cal endar session of the Superior court. It has generally been supposed that a case on the jury list could be defaulted by the defendant any time before trial, and the usual method has been to demur, refuse to plead over on the overruled demurrer, and thus take the case from the jury and go to a hearing on damages. In the case of Edwards vs. the New Haven and West Haven horse railroad and the New Haven and Derby company railroad in which Edwards saes the com pany for damages sustained in the Water street crossing collision several months ago, both defendants filed an answer before the case was defaulted. Yeaterdny afternoon Sim eon E. Baldwin .counsel for Ed wards, claimed that this would prevent the default and con sequent taking away of the case from the jury. Judge Beardsley, however, decided that filing the answer did not bar the de fault. GETS A DIVOaCK. Mrs. Ellen Maher was divorced from Ste phen Maher by Judge Beardsley yesterday afternoon. They had been married many years, but for the past four or five Stephen has been chronically dmnk and has estab lished a police court record of gteat length.
