TO-DAT'S ELECTION.
An TJnnsaal Interest In The Contest
A ITIany-SIded Battle Mr. Trow
bridge's Chances or an Election The
City ClerkshipThe Excitement In
Ward Politics The Constable Issne
The Town Ticket Four Happy
IHen.
The election to take place to-day is one in
which a notable interest prevails all about
town, especially among the ward workers in
Democratic circles. Prominent Republicans
and some prominent Democrats whose opin
ions were obtained yesterday expressed the
conviction that Mr. Trowbridge's chances of
being elected to-day Mayor of New Haven
are good, provided the Republican party
turns out as it should and polls its full vote.
The pith of their views is as follows :
The trouble that will be encountered is one
frequently met with in local elections. It is
apathy among Republicans caused simply
and solely by the idea that the Democratic
party will elect their candidates anyway and
there is no use of making an effort. Now
this making an effort is just what is needed
to-day, and theie is plenty of occasion for it,
It is imperative and if every Republican
does his duty Thomas R. Trowbridge, jr., will
be the next Mayor. The reason for this is
the outspoken dissatisfaction prevailing
among a considerable portion of the rank and
file of tne Democracy over tne bnanley mat
ter. over the constable ticket and over the
trouble left over from the State election,
when Reynolds was slaughtered in the race
for sheriff. Let every Republican cast his
vote to day, and Mr. Trowbridge is elected.
Another reason for this assumption is this:
Mr. Trowbridge will gain not a few Demo
cratic votes from among his friends in the
Democratic party. He will also gain many
owing to tne dissatisfaction existing in the
Democratic ranks. Then there is the labor
vote nine-tenths of which will
oome from the Democrats and reduce the
Democratic .vote. Therefore it is that
the Republicans have a good fighting ohance
to-day, which it is hoped they will improve.
On personal grounds there is nothing to say in
favor of Judge York which cannot be said in
favor of Mr. Trowbridge. Both have clean
records. Both are equally qualified for the
omce. 5ut Mr. Trowbridge is entitled to
every Republican vote. His fitness for the
office is unquestioned. He is not a profes
sional politician. - He is devoted to the inter
ests of the city.- He is thoroughly acquaint
ed with the most important interests and
needs of "the city. He would devote his time
to the interests of the taxpayers and to the
duties of the position with the energy which
characterizes him in business life and in all
undertakings with which he has been identi
fied.
Said a prominent Democrat: "It looks as if
tne Democratic ticket tor constables would
be defeated owing to the commotion caused
by the leaving oil or Messrs. .fond, Uatlln
and Higgins from the ticket. Mr. Pond is
again on the ticket by Mr. Redmond's with
drawal in his favor, but there are several po
litical scalping knives being sharpened and
there will be some telling work done to-day."
There will, of course, be lots of skirmish
ing to-day over some of the ward tickets for
members of the Court of Common Council.
There will be music at the Third ward polls;
also in the bloody Seventh; and there will be
lively work in each of these wards growing
nt of the Shanley letter revelation.
About a bushel of "pasters" are in the
field for use at to-day's election, from the
mayoralty down to the third councilmen,and
it is expected that the position of counter
in the large Democratic wards to night will
be like "the policeman's lot," "not a happy
one." The interest to hear the returns will
not be small.
There are four happy men who are to be
voted for to-day. They are Philip Hugo for
town clerk, Tax Collector Tattle, City Audit
or Lake and City Sheriff Hollis. These gen
tlemen can sit and look serenely on while
the battle rages, their names being upon both
tickets.
As to seleotmen there is another interest
ing contest. A leading Republican said last
night: "My opinion is that Mr. Beecher will
be elected town agent. Of course Messrs.
Treat, Beecher and Feldman will be re-elec-ed,
because of minority representation. Mr.
Feldman will as usual come in with a big
vote, as he always gets a good-sized Demo
cratic German vote in addition to the Re
publican vote. But my opinion is that
Mr. Beecher will be the next
town agent of New Haven. There
are various reforms in "the man
agement of town offices which Mr. Beecher,
if elected, has both the disposition and the
ability to make. I have no word against
Mr. Reynolds, except that it looks as if he
was handicapped in the race at the start by
circumstances unfortunate for that gentle
man, and a new deal is to my mind resolved
upon with reference to the office."
David w. snarp, tne candidate on tne
Republican ticket for Alderman in the Fourth
ward, is a veteran of the late war and served
from the beginning to the end of the great
conflict. He is a past commander of Admi
ral Foote post, G. A. R., and is very popular
among all classes. He ought to be elected
by a large majority.
Knots of Local Politicians
Were frequent in the vicinity of Church and
Chapel streets and "chinning" was lively.
The interest seemed to be centering on the
city clerkship and the constable election.
Said a well known young Democratic mer
chant versed in ward politics: "There will be
music in the Third ward to-day. Scratching
will be the order of the day. Shanley will
be scratched by the wholesale and those who
scratch his name will vote for no other name
for city clerk. This will work in favor , of
Willett. .There will also be a plenty of
scratching in the Seventh and Shanley will
be one of the sufferers. The constable busi
ness is rather mixed. The Democrats left
off Pond, Andrews, Catlin and Callahan.
Pond is back on the ticket through Red
mond's withdrawal in his favor, as is also
Andrews through a similar favor from Pe
ters. On the Republican or Citizens' ticket
are the names of four Democrats, Jacob
Mailhouse, Higgins, Andrews and Catlin.
Catlin and Callahan" are left out in the cold
and there is trouble ahead. Also," continued
the speaker, "there is an error in the Citizens'
ticket, on which Mr. Andrews' name appears
as Daniel K. Andrews. It should be David
K. Andrews."
Disgusted.
It was commonly reported last evening
that owing to the dissatisfaction in Demo
cratic circles many Democrats would vote
the Labor ticket. The Labor vote of to-day
is decidedly an unknown quantity and is va
riously estimated at from 300 to 1,200, the
latter being the figure at which it is placed
by some of the most sanguine Labor party
leaders.
Deep Emotion.
The Democratic ticket for hay wards excites
deep emotion and "the people pays their
money and takes their choice." Vote early,
but not too often.
A Scurrilous Dodger Against Willett.
Another instance of Democratic trickery
was exemplified last night when Chapel
street and other principal thoroughfares were
flooded with dodgers which grossly misrep
resented the Republican nominee for citv
clerk. This contemptible dodge appears to
oe tne laac straw grasped at to
defeat if possible Mr. Willett and
elect Bernard J. Shanlev. The dodge will
nave tne eneet attributed to tne boomerang.
it will react npon its autnors and tne pur
pose in view in their circulation. The cir
cular or dodger in question was headed "A
Statement of Facts," a most ironical head
ing. When the circular was shown a prom
inent city official last night, he said: "Shan
ley realizes that intelligent voters must know
that be is to be cut by his party, and the
only ghost of a Show he now thinks he has
is to induce Republicans to scratch Mr. Wil
lett, hence the dodger. This is about the
true situation of affairs, but Republicans
thoroughly understand it. No intelligent
voter is to oe deceived by suon means."
They Won't Go Home Till Morning.
As it looks now, said a Democratic office
holder last evening, the result of to-day's
election will not be fully known until mid
night and those who wish to know it will
not go home till morning.

decide the election.
INJURED AND HOMELESS.
Israel Allen, a Homeless nan, While
Walking on Church Street Falls and
Sustains Severe Injuries His Friends
Refuse to Receive Him Taken to
the Almshouse His Hurt Proba
bly Fatal.
Pedestrians on Church street early last ev
ening noticed an old man tottering along
aimlessly and when in front of Osborn's hat
store slip on the icy pavement and fall heav
ily forward. Passers-by picked him np and
carried him into the hat store.- Blood trick
led aown his face. He had received a bad
shock and was unoonsoious. Dr. Russell was
summoned and found that besides a bad
gash over his right eye he had sustained se
vere internal injuries. None of those pres
ent recognized the injured man and the po
lice ambulance was summoned to take him
to the hospital. He became conscious be
fore the ambulance arrived and said he lived
at No. 428 Orchard street. He was taken
there, but was refused admittance. The
residents of the place said he hadn't lived
there in over a year. He was then brought
to the police office. He was in a semi-uncon-soious
condition, but it was finally learned
from him that he had no home nor mends.
He was taken to the almshouse. It was
learned by a Courier reporter that bis name
was Israel Allen, a cooper by iraue ana seventy-six
years of age. He is an old resident
of the city and formerly owned the house at
425 Orchard street. He has two sons living in
the city. His friends have been doling out
charity to him for some time, but it appears
they became tired of him. He has always
been a sober, industrious man, but luck
seems to have gone against him.
Turn Out.
Republicans, turn out to-day and elect
Thomas R. Trowbridge, jr., for Mayor.

OBITUARY.
Death
of Ex-Alderman Abraham
Krauss Last Evening.
Ex-Alderman Abraham Krauss died last
evening at 9 o'clock at his residence, No 31
Vernon street, aged 66 years 7 months. Mr.
Krauss was one of our well known citizens,
and was very active in city politios a few
years ago. He served the city as Council
man and Alderman, and was quite influen
tial in local politics. He was on several im
portant committees in the Council when a
member of the Board. He gave much time
to the work, and was a faithful, consistent
and useful official. He entered into what
ever cause he espoused with all his heart, and
made his influence felt. He was a good citi
zen, and kind Husband and rattier. ne was
the owner of some property, mostly real es
tate. He had been in poor health for the
last two or three years, and died of a cancer
in the stomach. He had been confined to
the bed for nine weeks past. Ha was former
ly a member of Hiram lodge, F. and A. M.,
and had been connected with Connecticut
Rock lodge since its foundation, being one of
its charter members. He leaves a wire, two
grown up daughters and one son, who re
sides in JNew xorK.
SPURIOUS TICKETS.
A Despicable Came Being Played by
The Democrats Names Spelled
Wrong Great Watchfulness Needed.
Late last evening there were sent out into
the doubtful wards hundreds of spurious
tickets which on their face claimed to be
genuine "Citizens' " tickets,"while enclosed
with them were "stickers" with Judge York's
name upon them. The tickets, in fact, con
tain the names of one or more candidates
for ward officers so misspelled that it gives
the name of an entirely different person.
For instance, on the ticket sent out into the
Sixth ward the name of Henry E. Norris,
candidate for Councilman, is spelled
"Morris" instead of Norris, and the same
game has been played in other wards, notably
the Ninth and Second. The evident purpose
is to so far deceive Republicans that enough
of these spurious ballots will get into the
boxes before the fraud is discovered to secure
an election of a majority of Democrats in the
next Court of Common Council. It is a
desperate game the enemies of good govern
ment are playing, and before voting both
Republicans and Democrats who propose
voting the Citizens' ticket should carefully
scan their ballots before depositing them in
the box. The oity ticket sent out by the
Democrats may be readily recognized from
the fact that it is considerably longer than
the genuine Citizens' ticket.

The Bine And The Cray A
Incident.
Pleasant
Capt. Bowen of the Norwich police force
while reviewing recently an old diary he kept
while he was doing service with the Fifth
Connecticut Volunteers in the Army of 'the
Potomac was prompted to write a note of
thankB to his captor at the battle of Cedar
Mountain, the major of the Fifth Virginia
regiment, of Stonewall Jackson's brigade,
for the kindness shown him at that time,
He acted, npon the impulse and addressed
Major Newton a genial letter In which he ex
pressed the desire, "If business or ciroum
stances called Major Newton north, to
have him visit Norwioh and capture him
just once more," adding. "Nothing would
please me better;" and also expressing "the
hope to meet Major Newton at Gettysburg
in August next at the reunion of the brig
ade." Major Newton received the latter,
and in response wrote Captain Bowen a fine
fraternal letter full of a spirit which does
honor to the writer as a Christian, a soldier
and a citizen of the republic In conclud
ing he said:
Well, I have had some delightful times in the
past several years with my old comrades in blue.
The reunions of the 28th New York and the 5th
Virginiaregiments were events in our history which
will live in our memories while time endures.
Many of the gallant men of the 98th New Tork
by their noble deeds of kindness have won the
hearts of the members of the 6th Virginia, and

Constable Eagan returned from Water-
bury last evening with "Doc" Porter and
William Lalley, both about eighteen years of
age, charged with robbing John Marion of a
watch one evening about two weeks aeo.
Marion was standing near the National bank
when three young men came up and engaged
him In oonvKation. and then snatched his
watch and made off. The watch was sold in
Meriden, and Chief Ford learning of it in
formed Constable Eagan, who traced the
vouner men to Waterburv. There he was
aided by Chief Eagan, of that city, and Fri
day went to New Haven jail, bringing with
him a young man who identified John Cos
tello as one of the trio. On Saturday Con
stable Eagan went to the jail and after a long
talk with Costello learned enough to know
that he was on the right track. Costello
finally "squealed," and charged "Doc" Por
ter with the robbery. He also gave William
Lalley away. The overcoat which was taken
from Frank Main's was taken also by Porter.
Porter and Lalley both admit being in town,
but charge Costello with the stealing. They
will have a hearing Tuesday. The penalty is
a term in State prison of not more than live
nor less than two years.

give Terrenes Wnnn a license.
