Dr. Newman Smyth How Public Spirit Can be Awakened Valuable SuEKestlona. Rev. Dr. Newman Smyth spoke before the Chamber of Commerce in Loomis' Temple of Music last night to an unusually large au dience, not withstanding the bad state of the weather. After a round of applause which greeted him as he was introduced to the as semblage he began his address. His topio was "The Making of a City." We receive cities as thongh they were ready made. But how are cities made? The making of a city is a very complex thing, and when we look into the matter it is a most interesting process. Not unknown in this country are cities which have been made within a single generation. Single men have witnessed the erection of cities. I attended once the funeral of a man who, in his youth, pitched his tent in the West. Others began to pitch their tents there. The place grew till" it became a city. This man had seen a city made. New Haven is very far from being as yet a finished town or city. I need hardly remind yon of the importance of a city. Our cities are onr nerve forces. The history of civili zation has been largely the history of cities. The word citizenship shows the supreme place of the city in history. On account of the importance of a city, and on account of the important place which a board of commerce may hold in the history of a city, I have chosen my present subject. The forces whieh make a city are, first, the natural causes, which are climate, situa tion and lines of communication, both natural and artinoial. Manv natural possi bilities of cities are unfulfilled. The town with lesser natural advantages has sometimes outstripped the town with supetior advan tages. Another factor in the making of a city are the personal forces. Natural forces do not go wholly toward making of a city. Many of our cities die out because of none of the improvements which would tend to make them ktow. The founders and builders of our cities were strong, sagacious and far-reaching men, They were men who could seize upon and utilize natural advantages. They were men who introduced their ideas in a city. The custom was in ancient Nineveh of keeping the chronology of the city by the names of distinguished citizens who had won victories or honored and enriched the cities. I do not recollect that the names of any com mittee who built tbeir monuments were in scribed on them laughter. Each year was known by the name of a citizen. In the year of such a citizen so the annals were kept. The epochs in the histories of cities are marked by the lives of certain men in the city. The man who opened that avenue of trade, who by his far-sighted wisdom secured for the future some public improvement, who enriched a city by building np an im portant and permanent business in it, who gave a gift to the city, who impressed a truth upon the institutions of a town by the names of these men the history. of . the city may be written. Who first brought the rail road, the telegraph, the water of the lakes to JNew rlaven? who gave obeap transportation to the outskirts of the city? Who made its parks and its libraries? Who opened new business and new channels of trade to the city? By the means of these men the annals of the city might be written: and also by the names of the men whose lives enlightened and lifted to higher planes the character of the city. Every city has its proper individuality. Each city is an individuality. So to the traveler and the historian, Paris, Geneva, Venice, Florence, Rome are distinct person alities seen and felt. In America we are developing distinct types of cities from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Every city should have a distinct con sciousness of its own individuality. There should be a city consciousness, consciousness of itself; self-knowledge, knowledge of its natural characteristice and opportunities of its needs, of its true line of development; and an independent consciousness, not mere imitation. Cities must not be made to or der after one pattern. The development of individuality is demanded. How shall this be accomplished? Lack of public spirit is paralysis to a city. A Bound, healthy, living self -consciousness in a city is required. The training of citizens in the life of the city is necessaiy. The means of local educa tion must be improved. Local history and local topography should be studied and pub lic discussion encouraged. Another and potent factor in this education is the news paper. For this reaaorf'inetropolitan papers should never be allowed to crowd out local papers. There is need in a city like New Haven of local papers in which the local consciousness should find expression, and which should be the organ of the full local talent of the community. A newspaper to bring out the full local consciousness, and to bring into play full local talent, must be a well capitalized paper, and this means capitalization and consolidation. Then there is the value of platforms for pub lic discussion, and in this respect not to be overlooked is that old institution, the town meeting. In this respect also the old State House may have a moral use. (Laughter.) But what I wish now especially to empha size is the need of union of citizens in mak ing the city? The speaker enlarged npon this point, enforcing the thought that there is imperative need of organized public spirit and of organs for the expression and applica tion of public spirit. Sometimes uoder great pressure or intense public excitement this strong united public spirit is created. This leads me to speak of the functions and nse of a board of trade and how it may serve greatly in the true develop ment of the common life of a city. The city which has plenty of life-blood can use what biains it has, can think and feel, also, and enjoy; can be a warm hearted city. Dr. Smyth next considered the relation of the board' of trade to the general business prosperity of the city and spoke of a dis tinction, originating way back in 1760, and which still lingered as an echo among ns, the distinction between interlopers and town born; the interlopers being men largely responsible for the intrusion of commerce and the com mercial spirit hereabouts; among the intrud ers being such men as Roger Sherman and James Hillhonse, to say nothing of Benedict Arnold. President Stiles, writing in 1784, thus describes the 843 citizens then qualified to vote in New Haven as "one third of the citizens may be hearty Tories, one third Whigs and one-third lnaiHerent." How large now is the proportion of the indiffer ent," continued Dr. Smyth, "I cannot say" Laughter. "Of the Common Council," said Dr. Stiles, "there are five Whigs, five flexibles but in heart Whigs, eight Tories." The flexibles," added Dr. smytn, "are still not unknown citizens" Laughter, Hardly any public improvement in New Haven has there been whieh has not met with opposition. For instance, the removal of the cemetery from the Green. Tweaty years after that was accomplished the election of James Hillhonse was opposed in one of the newspapers in these words: "God forbid that the destroyer ot tne sepuicnres or onr fore fathers should ever receive the suffrage of their sons." One of our older citizens when Chapel street between State and Orange streets was paved against His protest was so indignant tnat be would take long strides over the sidewalk and walk in the street saying: "God's soil is good enough for me." Yet, in the main, public improvements pay. Search the annals of New Haven and judge whether each successive improvement from the colonial days down has not proved a commercial profit to the town. The beau tifying a city, the opening of parks, better sanitation bring returns, not only in the happiness of the people, but in the increased population and health and working powers of a city. Dr. Smyth offered some potent reasons why the board of trade is a power to help a city in its province and quoted from the reports of similar boards in other cities. Useful knowledge could be disseminated conducive to public prosperity, and publio discussion could do much to create a just publio sentiment en important questions to the city. The relation of such a board to business hospitality was the next branch of the subject. Our history has in this matter a lesson to teach. New Haven in the colonial period was unusually liberal in the admission of strangers. Yet how carefully guarded that liberality was may be seen by an inspection of the early laws relative to the admission of foreigners, "In May, 1650, a stringent law forbade the disposal of any house, house-lot, land or any part or parcel of the same to strangers. Strangers had to secure responsible sponsors, or they were liable to be ordered out of town. There was great ' indignation when John Winthrop old his right in the iron works to a couple of Bostonians. Later on the city encouraged immigration. At a city meeting held September 23, 1784, a commit tee of hospitality was appointed; perhaps a suggestion for a board of trade, a suggestion of something needing now more attention from the business men of the city in the following enumeration of the duties of that committee: "To assist all such strangers as shall come to the city for the purpose of settlement therein, in procuring houses and lands on the most reasonable terms. and to prevent sucn persons, so far as " possible, from being imposed nnon with - respect to rent . and the value of houses and lands, and . to give them such information and intelligence with resoeot to business, markets, commerce, modes of living, customs ana manners, as suoh strangers may need; and to cultivate an easy acquaintance of suoh strangers with the city thereof that their residence therein may be rendered as agreeable and eligible as pos sible." Dr. Smyth closed by referring to the many advantages the city of New Haven has to offer to ns, among the things being the monument and breakwater and its classic ruin on the Green, most beautiful by moon light." It is a city to be honored and served, to be increased and beautified, to be made prosperous and more attractive by the com mon devotion and the publio spirit of all true citizens who are worthy of having their lot in suoh pleasant places as this city of our homes. XiTT THOITS AN D DOLLARS MISSED Georg H. Bacon Arrested Chargea With Swindling a Canada Company of a Iiarare Sum Arrested in the New Haven PostoxBee. - -. At an early hour yesterday morning Depu ty United States Marshal Preston of Hart ford, accompanied by Jesse B. Maxsom, special deputy of the high constable of Otta wa, Canada, arrived in this city awned with an extradition warrant duly signed by E. E. Marvin, extradition commissioner for the United States at Hartford, in which the deputy marshal was directed to arrest the body of George H. Bacon, who is charged with forgery in the Dominion of Canada, The officers were accompanied by Frank S. Arnold, Esq., of Providence, attorney for the Canadian plaintiffs. The officers with the attorney put up at the New Haven house and in the morning called at the office of Deputy Marshal Lovejoy aud requested his assistance, which was cheerfully given. It appears that Bacon had been "shad owed" by a Boston detective for the past three weeks or more, for a time in Spring field, then again in Hartford and finally in this city. He had not left the city, returned to it or gone to his home bnt what every movement had been watched, waiting the necessary affidavits from Canada. While the charges against the accused are for forging a receipt for $80, also one for $200 whioh was raised to $494.60, yet it is claimed that the real offense is for swindling the Du Lieru Milling and Manufacturing company of Basin Du Lieru, Canada, out of $60,000. Mr. Bacon was manager of this company, and since he left the Dominion and came to the "States," it is alleged, these frauds were discovered. Of course it is well understood that the crime of "defrauding" is not an extraditable offense, and unless some other crime was found he could not be returned to Canada. Yesterday afternoon at about 5 o'clock the detective, who had been on duty at the de pot most of the day watching the trains, rushed into Marshal Lovejoy's office where the government officers and the attorney were consulting and announced tSat Bacon was just entering the postoffice. There was a rash down stairs, and a moment later Dep uty Marshal Preston had his hand upon the prisoner, and he was taken upstairs with very little ceremony. Attorney Arnold then questioned the prisoner about some of his transactions, first giving him to understand that he need not answer them unless he chose so to do. The prisoner made a general denial of nearly everything that was brought against him, but said he supposed he would have to go with the officer. He asked that a messenger be sent for his brother at No. Mansfield street, which was done and the brother responded. A brief consultation was held and then the prisoner was taken to the depot and on the eight o'clock train went to Hartford in charge of Deputy Marshal Preston. He will be taken before Commissioner Marvin and if sufficient cause is found will be remanded to jail to await an order from Secretary of State Bayard to remove the pris oner to Canada for trial. The accused is a son of the late Daniel Bacon, a former conductor on the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad. BASK BALL. The Players to Report by April 16 Several Slcned but Their Names Un known. By the 15th of next month the players of the New Haven base ball club are expected to report for their duty. This will give them two weeks' practice before the regular season commences. Manager Donnelly had not re turned from New York last night, whither he had gone for some players, and so none of the names of these so far signed can yet be obtained. The directors of the olub are waiting to see whether the Fair Haven and Westville horse car road or the West Haven car company will make the better proposition to them in fitting np the ball grounds. If the West Haven company offers the best in ducements then the groands will be selected on Howard avenue, if not the ground will be picked out near the Fair Haven and West ville line. No matter on which line the grounds are selected it will certainly be a great benefit to the road. One of the leaders of the base ball move ment said last night that several letters were received yesterday from players with good records who have got left, having waited so long before signing in order to get a high salary and were now willing to take less. He said neither Lilly nor any other of the local players would be signed, for public sentiment would be against the club then from the start. Good players from outside must be played this year, and possibly next year the local players would have a show. To his knowledge Vinton, of the Yale college nine, had cot been approached with a request to join the club. Manager Donnelly will attend the meeting of the schedule committee in Danbury to day. THE DEBBT HEARING. Parties Heard Last Evening: In Op position to the Helling of the Road A Further Hearing This Evcolng. The members of the Derby road committee looked rather tired as they took their seats preparatory to another hearing at 7:30 o'clock last evening with Mayor S. A. York presiding. The attendance included Hon. Henry G. Lewis, General S. E. Merwin, Major Strong, A. H. Kellam, Dr. Beckwith, Harry Leigh, Alderman Martin and others interested in the question before the meet ing. Mr. Joel A. Sperry, president of the Derby and a director on both the Naugatuck and Consolidated roads, was the first witness to be given a hearing and said: As I under stand this matter the Housatonie Valley com pany are desirous to construct this road and turn it over te the New England road. I be lieve that this Valley company is made up of Wall street speculators who have gone into the New England soheme for the purpose of making money out of it. They would push up the stock as high as possi ble and the city would de well to consider this matter a long time before they sell to these parties, as what they have is first lien and has to be cared for and looked after even before the stock of the other stock holders. The present road does the busi ness of this city a great deal of good, and if it goes out of the hands of the citizens, why of course they lose it for ever, and much of the business now sent to this city wonld be sent by the Naugatuck road to Bridgeport and from thence to New York. The sale, of course, would take away lots of the Starin's trade, which now eomes of the Derby, and this wonld of course raise freight rates greatly. Now you don't want to think this proposed extension to Sandy Hook will do the city very much good, as there is very little manufacturing in that section of the valley, and very few inhabitants. The idea that extension will bring more freight to this city is all bosh. While I am before you this evening I am only acting as I think it my duty in this matter, and I think this Derby is worth much more to the city than anyone has yet offered to pay for it. I myself have no interest in it except to keep my connec tion with the steamboat line and our Nauga tuck VrUey . trade. Much of the freight we carry goes to Europe, and it costs us a good deal to compete with New York firms, and if the Starin rates went up we could not afford to pay them, and so would give up that trade. I say again I have no interest in the sale except as I see the result at both ends of the line, and I some here in the position I hold and as a citizen and oppose the selling of the road for the money offered. The road is in first- class condition and is worth 100 cents on the dollar, and I fail to see how the city can lose anything by not selling. Mr. Ailing and Mr. Barnes cross-examined Mr. Sperry, but it only resulted in the tat ter's saying he had only three shares in the Derby road and didn't care for -any more at present. Dr. Beckwith was next heard and said: I appear as an independent citizen to oppose the selling of the city's interest in this road. The idea that some have that the city is in the railroad business and ought not to be is a mistaken one, and allowing that it is, the city is not poor and can afford to hold the Derby, and even if it does not pay five or six per cent, in fonr or five years it will pay to hold it. I think this road is a great help to the business men of this city, and that they have most of the valley trade in the retail line and can afford to hold their share in the road at all hazards. Anthony Carroll appeared and opposed the selling of the road on general principles, after which the eommittee adjourned to meet at 8 o'clock this evening. THIS WEEK!
