miss B. Christie's Showcase Shat
tered and Contents Stolon He Cine
to ths Thieves.
A very clever thief perpetrated a robbery
on Miss E. P. Christie, the well known
Chapel street milliner, early Tuesday even
ing. Miss Christie's millinery rooms are over
Monson -& Carpenter's store, and she has a
showcase filled with sample stock exhibited
at the foot of the stairway on the . Chapel
street walk. It has been the custom of
hired colored man to cany the case upstairs
nightly and deposit it at the door of Miss
Christie's room in the hallway, and in the
morning carry it back to the walk again,
Tuesday night when the colored man looked
for the case to bring np stairs it couldn't be
found.' Early yesterday morning it was
found in the rear of the building, the glass in
the ease shattered and the contents, consist
ing bf bonnets, feathers, plumes and velvets,
gone. It appears that the thief carried the
oase to the rear of the building before the
wonted time for the colored man to make
his appearance, and rifled it of its contents,
which were valued at f zo.

A hitch has occurred in the Danbury and

that the $60,000 of bonds were illegally is

the claim in the fact that the company will

the amount of $30,000. Some Danburians
are so mnch dissatisfied with ths whole af
fair that thev will ask a repeal of the char

John Lalshten -A Well Known Mem
ber of Hiram Lodge.
Mr. John Laighton, who died in Norwich,
Conn., was for some time in his earlier life a
resident of this city and a pupil of Jones &
Tenny, portrait painters on Chapel street,
Later he opened a studio here and was very
successful as an artist in oil portraiture. He
was a well known member of Hiram lodge of
Free Masons in this city, having joined in
1868. Some twelve years ago he removed to
Norwich and associated himself with his
brother, William S Laighton, a former pho
tographic operator for M. Moulthrop of this
city, in the photographio and portrait busi
ness, where they have been eminently suc
cessful, building up a large trade. Mr.
Laighton was of Quaker parentage, from
whom he inherited the oandor and sterling
honesty which characterise that sect. As a
uan he was an honor to his parents and up
right and straightforward in all his dealings
with his fel ow men. -Although hs never

- CIRCUIT COURT.
The Taylor-fllnllory" anlt XHaenaoed.
Before Judge Shipman yesterday in Hart
ford was argued a demurrer to the bill of
complaint recently brought in the United
States Circuit oonrt by James S. Taylor,' of
Danbury, against E. A. Mallory & Sons, of
the same town. The suit was to restrain de
fendants from - using" certain machinery
for sizing hats, which machinery is alleged
to have been secured by plaintiffs patents.
The complaint was filed October 13th, 1886.
On December 6th defendants filed their" de
murrer to the bill, stating that there were six
separate and distinct matters and causes al
leged. For infringement of letters patent
No. 263,075 for the hat -Boalding and felting
machine; for infringement of letters patent
No. 263,076 for machinery for felting hats;
for infringement of letters patent No. 278,
843 for hat scalding and felting machine;
for infringement of letters patent No. 280,
095 for hat Bizing or felting machine; for in
fringement of letters patent No. 297,471 for
method and machine for scalding and felting
hat bodies. It also stated that these matters
were so different in their nature that they
could not properly be joined in one suit.
After a snort argument Dy counsel Judge
Shipman ordered the complaint dismissed
with costs, though allowing plaintiff to
bring another suit on any of the letters
patent and providing that defendants shall
accept service of subpoena and the bill in
such new suit if brought.
The original bill of complaint comprises
the customary blank forms in patent cases,
and the blanks are filled in the same hand
writing as the signature of the plaintiff. The
demurrer was filed December 6, and on the
7th Lawyer MoHahon, of New Milford, en
tered an appearance for plaintiff. It is said
that Mr. Taylor prepared his own case and
wan ted no attorney until he found the bill
attacked for multifariousness. In bringing
suits in patent cases Mr. Taylor will probably
eome to the belief that in the end it is eco
nomical to have complaints properly drawn,
as he is now mulcted in costs on the present
ease. -Jut uovernor wgersuu, ox .. wis

Brokers have reaped quite a little harvest
in procuring and selling at a premium gold
dollars, which were in great demand holiday
week. As the government doesn't coin any
more of them at present and they are soaroe,
they have been bought up eagerly " from the
brokers who sold them at a premium of
twenty-five per cent., chiefly to young ladies
who wished to make use of them for bangles
or to be placed on other articles Of ornamen

to get the coins in a business way through
the banks did not have to pay any premium on
them. But with the banks and brokers there

To the Editor of the Journal and Coram:
Such great interest is expressed for the

existence is of such vast importance to New

don't its professed mends advocate the city

do as it did to the Air Line road) of five hun
dred thousand dollars to help it!

TO PETITION THE BOARD.
The Women's Christian Temperance
Union to Petition the Board of Police
Commissioners Per a Matron A
Providence Officials' Opinion.
The Women's Christian Temperance
Union of this city will soon present a peti
tion to the Board of Police Commissioners
praying for the appointment of a matron to
the police office. The Bev. John O. Collins,
who is greatly interested in the matter, yes
terday received a letter from Mrs. JT. K. Bar
ney, who recently visited, this oity. , In her
letter she gave the opinion of Chief of Police
Childs of Providence, Mrs. : Barney's home,
regarding the advisability of having motions
in police offices.
Mr. Childs' experience in the care of pris
oners in the Providence station where there
is a matron located is related to Mrs. Barney
as follows: "All female prisoners received at
this station are immediately placed under
the care of the matron, who has charge of
the prisoners' dock, where they await their
arraignment or trial before the police and
justice courts, and continues her supervision
until they are discharged from custody or
taken away to be committed to the institu
tions in Cranston.
"She also searches all of the female prison
ers before commitment to the cells, many of
whom are charged with- larceny and are
suspected of having stolen properly in their
possession. In addition to the large number
of prisoners brought to the central station
many Insane persons -of both sexes are
detained for safe keeping to await transpor
tation to hospitals both in and out of the
State. - The fitness of having a matron for
females who are bereft of reason and entirely
regardless of all the ordinary proprieties of
life is obvious to every mind. I am free to
state that, in my opinion, the system is for
many reasons a great improvement on our
previous methods of doing such business. It
also relieves onr officers from the execution
of many unpleasant and delicate duties, the
necessity or which has not generally been
understood and for the performance of which
we nave sometimes been severely criticised."

INGERSOLL IN HARTFORD.
Likes the Capitol bnt Wants the
Sunday Laws Changed.
Colonel Bobert G. Ingersoll visited Hart
ford yesterday on private business, but took
a look about the Capitol and got acquainted
with some of the State's lawmakers. He great
ly admired the building, but wanted to see
some of the obsolete statutes in regard to the
observance of Sunday wiped from the
statute books. "If the people want to rest,"
said he, "1st thorn rest; but if I dont
want to rest I don't like to be compelled to
do so." He expressed his great pleasure at
the conveniences afforded by the Capitol in
the suites of rooms and the beauty of the
design and excellence of finish. The lower
floor he spoke exceedingly complimentary of.
Says the Times: One of the employes in
the building after he found out who the
colonel was said, as he saw him enter the
carriage: "The time will come before long
when he'll find out whether there's a devil
in hell or not. When he meets him he'll
step up and cordially shake hands with

Oh, What an Awful Breath.
There is nothing more healthful than
onions. The trouble is that persons are
afraid to eat them because they make the
breath onfragrant. But there is a less fra
grant breath than that freighted with onions.
We mean the breath of a person with a foul
stomach. Take him away! we inwardly cry
when he whispers la our ear. Do see that
your breath ia pure. Take a few Brandreth's
pills and regulate your" liver, ' stomach and
bowels and your breath will be sweet.
