Hartford, Feb. 3. Special to the Journal and Courisb 1 The limit for the reception of new business in the legislature is passed for this session and the lawmakers will now begin deciding on how many of those presented during the past month will be placed oa the statute books. To-day being the last day for new business there was a grand rash among the members of the House to get their particular bill, petition or remonstrance presented. There were one hundred and sixty different bills presented during the session of the How;e up to 11:43 to-day, the hour set for the limit of new business. There were bills bi ought to the attention of the lt iBlators upon almost every conceivable subject. The olerks heaved deep sighs of relief as the last of the one hundred and sixty bills present ed to the Honse was read. There is more business to be acted upon this session than last, bnt it is thought this will not keep the legislature any longer in session as the busi ness is of a less trying character and there will probably not be so many windy healings and speeches. The labor committee met this afternoon and took op the weekly payment and factor izing bills. Representative Kehoe s bill No 69 was the one discussed, the other bills, three in number, beine nearly identical. The bill provides that every manufacturing, mer cantile and railroad corporation shall pay weekly each and every employe engaged in its business the wages earned by such em ploye to within seven days of the date of sush payment, provided, however, that if at any time of payment any employe shall be absent from his regular place of labor, he shall be entitled to such payment at any time thereafter or on de mand. The bill also provides that every eorDoration violating an; of the provisions of the preceding section shall forfeit the sum of fifty dollars, half to him who shall sne therefor and half to the State. Represent ative Kehoe was the first to address the com mittee; he spoke for ten minutes in favor of the bill he had introduced. He thonght the workmen required a weekly payment sbill and shonld be paid their wages as soon as earned. The majority of the manufacturers in the State are willing to pay weekly and it is to compel those who do not that I introduced this bill. Representative Hanie of New Ha ven advocated the bill. There is hardly any question but that something ought to be done in the way of bringing about weekly payments. The workingmen of the State should be granted this boon, because now th?y have no equity. It is known that many manufacturers pay weekly, bnt if any por tion of the State's people are injured why the whole of the people of the State suffer. The public demands weekly payments. The 60 per cent, bill has been talked of, but I am afraid there .would be oontinunl friction if the 80 per cent, bill were adopted. What we want is some bill that will be fair and just all around. We don't ask the legislature to take anything from the manufacturers. 1 nope, gentlemen of the committee, that you will consider this matter in all its branohes. One of the largest manufactories in New Haven, that of J. B. Sarcent & Co., pays its workmen weekly. They have no eighty per cent, pay nients, and their business is such that cer tain pieces of work are not finished for weeks, bnt the managers of the concern know their business so well that they can accurately figure on each man's work. Pat rick Finley, who hails from Windham, cre ated much laughter among the members of the committee and the spectators by the manner in wmcn no presented nis views on he matter. He was strongly op posed to the paying weekly and said that the workingmen from where he came were also opposed to the bill. They ire satisfied witn the present way of paving iu vogue by many and nearly all the manufacturers in our country that of monthly payments. I am acquainted with nine-tenths of the workingmen of the coun ty, said he, and thev do not consider it grievance to get their pay monthly. The gentleman next to address the oommittee was llr. Watson of Bridgeport, who stated that he was a bookkeeper for a manufacturing concern in his town where six hundred men were employed and all favored strongly weekly payments. His remarks seemed well taken and carried considerable force. Mr. Watson said there von Id be mnch unneces sary work in regard ta the eight per cent. bill and he did not favor it. A full payment each week is what the workinirmen want. We have no trouble in making up ovr pay roll every Wednesday or Thursday and pay oxtTfiwa help when they earn and need it, and 80 per cent, of onr men on piece work at that. We were cursed to death by the eternal running of creditors, lawyers or sheriffs when we paid onr men monthly, bnt they don't come now that we pay weekly. Another thins; in favor of the weekly pay ment bill is that the men who are thus paid do not oome to ask for money every little while. This calling for money on an aveiage of four or five times a month by the work men, who found it a necessity to do so, necessitated my keeping a script account, which has now been entirely done away with under the present system of payment. The curse of a town is its credit system, and I feel assured that if the manufacturers were to pay their help weekly it would do mnch to do away with it and help establish a cash basis. Senate bill No. 9 and Honse bill 43, both alike in the main, provide tor the exempt ing of wages from attachment. Representa tive Hanie, who introduced bill No. 43, ad vocated il and said that in his belief a week ly payment bill would fall far short of its purpose and good unless the credit system was done away with by exempting wages from attachment. Mr. Hunie's bill provides for a stated amount, S7U. 1 am very ani ons, said he, that the cash system be brought about, and when It is the workingmen a con dition will be much better. Workmen in general are a happy and rather reckless olass of people, and when they can easily get cred it thty do it without thinking on the ques tion whether or no it will injure tnem ana it most certainly does. I say to east off the credit system and the cash basis will soon be reached. Manufacturer Gilbert, of Wallingford. told the committee how twenty years ago he fa vored the factorizing law, but to-day he most emphatically opposed it for many reasons, It injnres the workingman in reputation and morals. The man who gives the credit re ceives but little from the debt, as it is eaten no in lawyers' and justices' fees. It materi ally hinders the employer in his work, as he IS annoyed uj oreuibuni bemug mm w wuom he must nav his money, and it damages all parties concerned in the miserable affair. I favor the total abolition of the factorizing law. Representative James JL. Uonnor. of New Haven, stated that he had had conversa tions with several retail merchants in his eityavnd they were all unanimous on the re Deal of the factorizing law. Senator Kirk ham expressed his belief that the repeal of the bill would produce a much higher moral character ana proaaoe more self-respect among workmen, taking them as a class. Mr. Jeffrey O. Phelps, of Simsbnry, thonght that the whole trouble lay in the man himself. He was convinced that God made man and man made himself. I know men, said he, who have acquired large property from very small wages, and they could at any time get credit when they want ed it. The men I refer to didratt get paid weekly either, but only twioe a year. I don't think it is a necessity to have weekly payments, neither do I believe in repealing this factorizing bill. Senator Hall addressed the committee in regard to the feeling among work men on railroads where weekly payments were in vogue. They liked it very mnch. Mr. Lamb, of Ledyard, and Mr". Reed, of Burlington, both favored the repeal of the bill. The oommittee ad journed until a later day. It is thought that a weekly payment out win do recommenaea, but it is doubtful abont the factorizing bill being recommended repealed. An interesting hearing tooc piece oeiore the committee on finance, Senator Lucas chairman, this afternoon on House petition No. 27 of Washington school district of Hart ford to tax Trinity college property for schoo purposes. Judge Edward S. White appeared for the school district. The distriot asks through Judge White that a tract of land in the Washington dis trict, unimproved and being offered for sale, which is owned by Trinity college whioh pay no tax on the same, be taxed as , i i. i . a it is not used for college purposes. There are about one hundred acres in the tract. Daniel H. Wells of. the school district com mittee and George P. Mayhew addressed the committee in favor of taxing the college property. William Hammersley, of this city, appeared tor the college and denied that the land in question was to be used for specula tive purposes. The plot was bought sp the college could control it until proper persons could be got to locate in the vicinity. There seems to be mneh trouble in the Hartford school district principally over the inequality of taxation. In different districts the tax ranges from one to four mills. Discontented New Haveners look at this ana think well on 't. The different committees are now in good working order, and henceforth the wheels of legislation will undoubtedly run quickly. The committee on banks, Senator Hntchins chairman, met this afternoon to consider the Senate and Honse bills changing the laws regulating the investments by saving banks, bnt adjourned without discussing the bills. The committee on railroads, which was to have considered the grade crossing bill, met and adjourned without transacting any busi ness.

On the 7th of October, 1885, John Murphy left Hartford at 7:40 p.m. by the Valley rail road for Middietown. He stepped off the train while over the Green street bridge in Middietown and in the darkness fell to the street below, receiving injuries whioh caused his death a week later. The administrator brought suit against the railroad, claiming $5,000 damages. The case was begun Wed . nesday in the Superior court at Middietown before Jndge fhelps. The plaintiffs assert that the deceased had been absent from Middietown a considerable time at work in a quarry at Longmeadow, Mass., and did pot know that the old Valley depot at the foot of Washington street had been discon tinued; that just before the train reached the Air Line junction a train official announced ''next station Middietown;" that the train stopped wheu the ends of a passenger and a baggage ear were over the bridge; that the deceased, supposing that he was at the plat form ot tbe old wasmngton street depot. stepped off and received, fatal injuries; that the railroad omoiais ( neglected to warn Murphy of the dangerous place and that the company is liable for damages because of neglect. The defendant claims that the deceased was intoxicated when he left Hartford, and was therefore assisted by Policeman Lloyd of Hartford when he got upon the train; that he ap peared to be sleepy because of liquor while on the train and that he did not nse proper caution; mat ir ne naa used such care every passenger should he would not have stepped off the train while he was over the bridge. The case was on yesterday. War ner and C. E. Bacon for the plaintiff, Robin son and A. W. Bacon for the railroad com pany. General State News. FORMERLY OF NORWICH.

Lomberg, an Ansonia jeweler, sat in his shop the other day a man came in with an eld watch which he wanted to turn in as part payment for a new one. As Lom berg looked at the watch he found that it was made by his father in Lennep twenty five years ago and had his autograph engrav ed on the ease. He made the bargain and it then appeared that Charles Piokhart, who sold it, was the son ot tne original purchaser who had it from Lomberg, senior. FATHER DXBHON. The Rev.

His father ooaraed witn the late Abel Aaams. iuej were in bnsiness for a long time in the little low wood building which stood just west of his residence and was removed to give place to the Trneman block. Mr. Trneman says that he has - examined the buildings of the city thoroughly and can find no sign remain ing which announces a business house that existed when he came here in 1833. He says there are a few old weather-beaten signs re maining on the buildings, but the individ uals who conducted business there have long since passed away. Norwieh Bulletin.
