They Want to Form n New League in Football With Yale ana Htrvsra or With Harvard Alone ir Yala Objects to the Scheme. The mud-sands of New Jersey are ever and anon in a state of violent agitation, and with every terrestrial motion in that important part of the Union the voice of the progres sive Piinceton college Is heard crying alond for recognition. Last week the corporation decided that Princeton should not become a university, but that had no effect upon the restless spirits that are ever wanting a change. Princeton wanted a base ball league formed of Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Columbia. She fought hard tor it, and the culminating success that crowned her efforts made the members of the eollege desirous of showing her superiority over other sister colleges in inventing plans and almost, as it were, foro- ing thera into the acceptance of them. Now she is not content with being in a quadrangular league in base ball, but wants to sever herself from being compelled to nlav with small colleges for the football championship, which she had the good luck once upon a time to win. Prince ton wants a new league in football. She wants Haf vard to join it and if Yale is dis inclined whv. all the better she can do without her. Probably she can, and prob. ablv with her single rival. Harvard, she micht win a trophy somewhat more often than she has succeeded in doing in the past. Whether she succeeds or not in her proposal is a matter of little inquiry, as her domi neerinor power over Yale and Harvard is somewhat limited, to say the least. Wednesday evening the college held a mass meeting and during the meeting important thines happened. In the hrst place after the election of the officers of the football association William J. Cook '89, captain ef the team, spoke in fa vor of Princeton withdrawing from the pres ent Intercollegiate league and uniting with Yale and Harvard. Among those to favor the scheme were Professor Johnson, who said that the plan would make a more com pact league by associating the three leading universities together, by forming good rules and by eliminating undesirable features. Captain Larkin of the base ball team also advocated the idea and said it would prove a good one. Then R. B. Bradford '87, not to be outdone, proposed that the delegates to the convention of the Inter-collegiate Football association on Saturday be instructed to withdraw Prince ton and form a league with Harvard at any rate if Yale was disinclined to favor the scheme and with Yale if she was willing to join. This resolution was passed unanimous ly, wnetner iale win join ine league is a matter of conjecture, but a league without her would give the enjoyable sport of football, a black eye which would make it entirely devoid of in terest and make it in a short while a sport time of the past. The idea of such a league witnout Yale is preposterous in the extreme and will not meet the approval of Harvard. In case the new league is formed it will leave out Wesleyan college and the Univer sity of Pennsylvania. Captain Holden of the Harvard football team was in town yes terday afternoon and said that Harvard was not overzealous in forming the newly pro posed league, but said that she would go into it should Yale act likewise. A prominent member ot the senior class yesterday when asked his opinion in reference to the league said that it was sprung upon the college with such precipitancy that the wishes of the college could not be stated, but that he tnoucrht it was another or rnnoeton s schemes to compel Harvard and Yale to ac quiesce to her dictates. Improving The many friends of Mr. Charles F. Beach, who broke his leg three weeks since, will be pleased to learn that he is gaining rapidly under the care of Dr. Russell. The New Rldlnc Club. The interest which has attached itself to the New Haven Riding club has finally cul minated in making a permanent organisa tian, and at the meeting to-night officers will be elected and everything pnt in a promising way for its success. The male members of the club took a ride on Wednesday and all will be on hand again to-morrow (Saturday) when another ride will take place. Next Wednesday will be the gala day of the club, and if the weather is fine a large number of both the male and female portion of the club will participate in the fan. There has been talk of a hare and hound race on that day, but it is not finally settled upon. West Haven. Charles A. Hendee, who died in West Ha ven Wednesday morning was the son of Lu cius Hendee and lived for several years in the old Booth house, Stratford, near the M. E. church. After his removal from Stratford to New Haven he went into the silk and fancy goods business, delivering by team over an extended route. He was a young man of sterling qualities and had a large eircle of friends. He was but thirty-three years old and leaves a wife and two children. His wife is a sister of the late Mrs. Nellie B. Terry, whose funeral took place in Stratford Monday and who was the only remaining daughter of Mrs. Martha P. Andrews of that place. Mr. Hendee's funeral will take place from the residence of Julius C. Thomas in Stratford on Saturday at 3 p. m. Burial or Henry W. Schappa. Funeral services were performed over the remains of Hsnry W. Schappa, aged twenty seven years, of 103 James street, yesterday at St. Francis' church, Fair Haven, where a requiem high mass was celebrated by the Rev. Mr. Fleming. The late Mr. Schappa was the son of Joseph Schappa, foreman of W. & E. T. Fitch's faotory, and was a young man well liked by all who came in contact with him. - During the mass a beautiful ren dition of the hymn "Flee as a Bird" was sung by Miss Sara Rohan. Among the floral trib utes were a beautiful cross bearing the in scription "A Friend" from Lieutenant T. F. Callahan and wife, and a Bimilar floral piece from the brothers and sisters, inscribed upon which was the word "Brother." The bearers were John McEeon, Christopher Smith, Charles Schappa, John Brophy, John McNa mee and William Schappa. Friendship Council, No. 8, D. of L. The members of the Friendship council, No. 8, D. of L., gave a very interesting mu sical and literary entertainment in their rooms in the Coubikb building last evening. The members of the order took the parts in the entertainment and the evening was passed most pleasantly by all who attended. The Friendship counsil have a way of suc ceeding in everything and their efforts to please all last evening were most gratifying. A long but enjoyable programme was ren dered, consisting of instrumental and vocal music and varied with pleasing dialogues and tableaux. Mr. Slvanus Butler made the opening address. Among the happy parts of the evening was the brass quartette, consisting of Messrs. Hughes, Strong, Hurl burt and McCarthy; a harmonic solo by the Nicholson brothers; a reading by Miss A. N. Mack of Meriden, which was particularly fine; and the whole ended by unique tab leaux in whioh the yonnger members of the order took part. Local Art Talent. At the exhibition at Cutler's by local t v lent in art is a very finely executed represen tation by Artist Hendriok of a $2 bill on a suitable background. The pioture is neatly framed and deceives many, the imitation being so oloselr and admirable done. It is a capital piece of work. Also a picture by Mr. Haberle ia the same collection entitled, "An Old Hand at '66," is a fine character sketch of an old dame who ia displaying with evident pleasure the winning cards in the game, which in part gives name to the pioture. Mr. Haberle is the teacher of the New Haven Art club, which is composed of several local artists and others interested in art. The olnb meets at the club room every Monday evening. At Treager's restaurant is an oil painting representing a cigar box cover which is ap parently tacked to a pine board. Upon the center of the cover is an impression appar ently made by a branding iron, while across the ends and sides of the cover are repre sented the revenue stamps and paper orna mentations usually found upon cigar boxes. On one corner of the cover is represented a photograph of a lady, under which appears the familiar autograph of "Mora." The work is admirably done. Even the intrioate linos of the geometric lathe work upon the stamp are imitated in the most perfect man ner. Mr. Trreger prizes the picture very highly and has recently given the artist, Mr. Haberle, a commission to paint a companion pioture. .

Hemingway, for years past with the Foster carpet store on Orange street, suc- seeds Mr. Foster in the business, having bought it out, and is prepared with a splen did stock in all departments carpets of all grades, window shades, curtains and fixtures, rugs, etc., and all at favorable prices. Mr. Hemingway's many friends will give him a liberal patronage and the store will be popu lar with the New Haven public.

Hopson of the New York World. While in Florida about a fortnight ago he became disabled by paraly sis. For the past week he has been in New York. FOR ITIK.TIOIl IAL DAT meeting; of the Joint Memorial Day Committee. The joint Memoiial day committee com mittee comprising members of the various Grand Army posts in the oity met at the committee rooms in the State House last evening, and elected the following officers: Col. William H. Pierpont, chairman; Samuel Morris, secretary; William H. Bouton, treas naer. The matter regarding the ceremonies of the day were discussed informally. It seemed to be generally agreed that the pro ceedings should have less of a military char acter that last year, while the dedication cere monies proper shonld be more elaborate. It was deemed impolite, if not nnjust,to request the city batallion to parade, in view of the near approach of the monument dedication day, when the various regiments of Connec ticut troops are axpeeted to participate. There will probably be a brief parade of the several G. A. R. posts, and the entire outside ceremonies will occupy but half a day. The committee adjourned to meet Friday evening April 1st. REV. DR. HOTET Called to the Park Street Church, Bridgeport. A meeting of the Park street Congrega tional chnrch was held Wednesday evening and there was a large attendance. It was summoned for the purpose of taking action upon the proposed calling to the pastorate of Rev. H. C. Hovey, D. D., of Minneapolis, Minn., formerly of Fair Haven. When this subject came np a standing vote was favored and this was nnanimously in favor of the choice of Rev. Dr. Hovey, not one rising in dissent. The gentleman has preached be fore the congregation but once and this action is a very decided compliment to his ability as a divine. The four deacons Messrs. Winton, Wooster, Woodruff and Storr were appointed a committee to confer with the society's committee relative to call ing a session of the Ecclesiastical society for the purpose of ratifying the action of the ohnrch, which will un doubtedly be done. It was voted that an invitation should be extended to the reverend gentleman to attend the family tea given by the ladies of the congregation last evening. Dr. Hovey's wife has gone back to Minneapolis but he and his daughter are visiting friends in Fair Haven. The Standard says: "Dr. Hovey was first recom mended to the committee by Prof. Lewellyn Pratt of Hartford. He is said to be specially a favorite with the young people of his form er parishes and to enter heartily into their plans of church work. He and the young ladies of his family are musicians and his wife takes a deep interest in the work ot the churoh. If a call is extended to Dr. Hovey, Bridgeport will gain a citizen to be proud of and one who will take a first rank among those interested in philanthropic, soientifio and religious objects."

Loctnre Before Vale Theological School by Rev. John Hall, D. I). Advice to Tone Ministers Lecture To-Day. Rev. John Hall, D. D., of New York, lec tured yesterday afternoon in the Marquand chapel to a large audience. In addition to the large number of seminary students there were many ladies and gentlemen present. The subject was "The Pastor in the Study, the Pulpit and the Parish." This Dr. Hall divided into three parts, treating of the first yesterday. It is to be assumed that the ministry is a body of educated men, though there are many exceptions not to be depre ciated; second, it is assumed that they fixed and settled pastors; not stated supplies, but pastors with a sense of definite reaponsi bility; third, it is assumed that he has a roof to oover him and a place whioh he can call his study. Then, in the first place, let him put up and keep the books of his aoademical education; they will keep him in recollection of what he has gone through and keep alive sympathy with tne boys and with the schools. Inure will be pleasure in keeping acquainted with them, if it is only acquaintance with their backs. Second, the pastor must en deavor to keep himself acquainted with gen eral literature. He is a man before he is a minister, and does not cease from being a man when he becomes a minister. It is necessary for him to keep abreast of his peo ple in good literature and not become a man of one idea. Again, he mnst read in the line of travels in the West and especially in the East. Such reading will enlarge his concep tion and give broader ideas of fellow men. In more immediate connection with his work he should read religious biography, by which the pastor gets in sympathy with the good elements of great natures, encourage ment, good suggestions as to tne ways in which (rood may be done, and most of all, light appreciation of inner spiritual life in woik. He shonld study history and see how principles work themselves out. But after all, theology is his special and distinctive work, tie must be a tneologian to system atize and arrange the truths which he pre sents, tie must stndy the Bible most of all, and it will be of great valne to memorize parts of it. Dr. Hall also gave a list of com mentators and books upon tne topics sug gested, which had been of most value to him in his experience. His illustrations of points in question were very "entertaining. The whole lecture was given in the way character istic of the speaker, who always gives what is well worth hearing and following. Dr. Hall will speak this afternoon at three o'clock upon the pastor in the pulpit. Real Estate. Additional real estate changes are as fol lows: Herbert C. Warren and Helen L. Warren to Ma ry A. L. Ford, wife of George H. Ford, 20 feet on York street with buildings thereon. Harriet B. Maltby to James W. Coyne and Thom as F. Coyne, 103 feet on Clay street. George H. Ford and Mary A. L.

Robert Scarritt, 24, brother of George Scarritt, section boss on the New York and New England road, was killed in a Bawmill at Kissimme, Fla., by a horrible accident March 16. He was a partner of the firm of Sillman & Scarritt, owners of the mill, and was working behind a swing circular saw running in the lower end of the frame which was suspended by bearings at the top, and as the saw swung forward into a log the rope broke, letting the saw return, cutting open his chest instantly to the heart. The deceas ed was buried there with Masonio honors, His brother, David L. Scarritt, who went to Florida last fall from Bristol, was with him employed in the mill. Sillman has connec tions in Waterbury and Bridgeport. AMONG THE COLLEGIANS. General Notes of Interest on the Campus Chess Club Mr. E. V. Rey nolds to Lecture Thla Evening.
