Mr. Baldwin of Cheshire A Move for a Memorial Xrlbnte to Commemorate the venport Oak Tree. There was less than a dozen persons pres ent at the meeting of the Historical society last night. The paper for the evening was by Rev. Mr. Baldwin, of Cheshire; subject, "The Third Chapter of the Annals of Bran ford.'' On account of the small audience Mr. Baldwin read but a part of the interest ing production, and will finish at a later date. The. speaker was introduced by Presi dent S. E. Baldwin, and said: "In 1800 there was a population of 2,166 persons in Bran- ford. This included what is now North Branford and Northford. Ten years later it was 200 less. . - It seemed that the town had oome to a standstill, simply for the lack of energy on the part of the inhabitants. There was no manufacturing, the people being mostly farmers and seafaring men. There were four Congregational and two Episcopal churches. In 1799 the oyster business was looked in to by the town authorities. There was a danger of the natural supply giving out. A law was passed prohibiting the taking of oysters between April 1st and November 1st, nnder a penalty of $7 fine for each offense. After this time permits were issned to each family to take not more than two bushels each day, and only one permit to a family. The paper is full of historical interest. A motion was made to the society "by Henry D. Blake that a committee of three be appointed by the president to consider the advisability of purchasing and erecting some sort of a memorial - on the lot on College street near George on which the Davenport oak stood in 1638.

The Annual Public Meeting Last Night The postponed meeting of the organized charities was held last night at the Center chnreh chapel. At the last meeting it was voted to hold a pnblio meeting and despite the rain quite a number availed themselves of the opportunity to be present and hear Agent Preston's report of the work that was being; done. His report was very interesting, giving account of the way the different per sons applying for aid are dealt with, of the many eases where temporary aid was furnish ed to those who needed it, and the cases where women and ohildren suffering from the neg lect of drunken husbands and fathers have been taken and cared for. Sixty-one cases ef fraud were detected and exposed, some showing remarkably ingenions schemes to secure aid. A great amount of good has been done and is being done all the time, but what is wanted to more f ally carry on the work is, first, "greater oo-aeeration in the way of furnish ing information;" secondly, more friendly visitors, more people who will drop senti mental notions and come in direct contact with those who are suffering simply from ig norance. Mr. Preston answered to the ques tion "What does an agent do!" "The records of the work of one day show that that official has bnt very little spare time on his hands." Quite a number of other gentlemen present made remarks on the following subjects: Prof. Wayland, on "The general purposes of the work;" Mr. L. Bradner. "Investigation;" Mr. Henry Hooker, "Friendly visitors;" Mr. Henry C. White, "Registration;" Rev. E. S. Lines, "Secular and hnmane character of the work and the helping of people that help themselves." Among those present were Mr. Squires of the Consolidated road, Rev.W. H. Butriok, Mr. S. H. Barnum and several la dies. CAMPTJa NOTES. Tale's Heavy Bitters Off lor Philadel phia Three Batteries for the 'Varsi ty Nine The Harvard Crew Move ments of musical Organisations General News. The New York D. K. E. olnb gives an en tertainment to-night. Trainer M. J. Murphy has resumed his du ties with the candidates for the Mott Haven team. Slater, '91, is at the hospital and is quite seriously ill with pneumonia. It is said that the Columbia crew has dis banded. Harvard's refusal to row has dis couraged her. Stone, '91, weighing less than ninety pounds, will be the coxswain of the Harvard erew. All recitations close at 9:30 a. m. to-mor row, and exercises will be resumed Thurs day, April 5, with the college chapel. At the senior law recitation yesterday af ternoon Prof. Robinson took occasion to re fer to the model career of Chief Justice Waite. He said it was not the man who started off brilliantly and who had a glib tongue tha!i succeeds, bnt the man who does steady, earnest work. He advised the boys to take the life of the late chief justice as their model. The report that Yale would have two uni versity football teams next fall is denied by the management. lue report is contained however, from another souroe. The Glee clnb gives the first concert on its Easter trip at Orange, N. J., to-morrow evening. The next day they return to New York and embark for Old Point Comfort. Ya. On Friday they sing at Old Point Comfort, and on Monday at Washington. On Tuesday they are billed for the Lyceum Theater, cal timore. On Wednesday at Brooklyn. The Apollo club starts on its trip through Massachusetts Tnursdav. It is tne first ex tended trip that the club has made and promises to be quite successful. The contest for the Mott Haven cup this year promises to be unusually close and no one dares to predict the result. Yale chances are fair and her representatives will put forth every exertion to retain the tropny The Harvard crew as now rowing is made up as follows: Bow, Storrow 'tjtf, captain No. 2, Trafford '89; No. 3, Carpenter '88 No. 4. Markoe '89; No. 5, Finlay '91; No. 6, ilton 'atl: JNo. 7, uavis 'Btf; stroxe, Alexan der. L. S. There are ten other candidates. All of last year's crew are in college, but Storrow and Davis are the only old men row ing. Dr. Sargent's measurements show much strength among the candidates, while their chief failing ie in luns power, and the fact that many of them are young for the 'Varsi ty. The coaches are working hard to get the men to row alike, as for the last few years so manv different strokes have been need It is said that the undergraduates have be come tired of the secrecy maintained about the crew and are clamoring to know what the crew is doing. The Yale nine staits for Philadelphia to morrow evening where on Friday and oatnr day it is advertised to meet the Athletics and tne U niversity of Pennsylvania. Fourteen men will be taken on the trip and three bat teries will be sarried. Besides the premiers stags and Uann y ale will have Mey worth and Osborn, Dalzell and McBride.

The monthly meeting of the managers will be held at the asylum, 610 Elm street, on Thursday morning of this week at quarter after 10 o'clock. NO BLIZZARDS Oat la Colorado Beantlfnl Spring Weather. From letters received recently from Mr, Lewis E. Cadwell, formerly of the Yale 'varsity orew, now connected with the Fre mont County bank of Canon City, Colorado, it would seem that blizzards are entirely nn known there. The weather for the past win ter has been what we term here our Indian summer or the bright sunny days of Octo ber. Sheltered as Canon City is by Pike' Peak and other ranges they enjoy a climate equal to Los Angeles, Cal. While we here were wading through snow drifts Mr. Cad well formed a party of ladies and gentlemen and enjoyed a pionio at Marble Cave, a very picturesque spot, a snort distance from tn city. German Lutheran Chnreh. Following is a corrected list of the persons who received the rite of confirmation at the German Lutheran churoh, Rev. Mr. Siebke pastor, last Sunday, there having been some errors in the list of yesterday: Gertrude Re gine Albers, Caroline Thereae Abt, Louise Dippold, Anna Gertrude Finis, Therese Eliz abeth Hoff meister, Emilie Auguste Charlotte Hoppner, Augusts Rosalie Henrietta Maede, Lina Rose Miohahelles, Emma Emilie Neu- busser, Emma Elizabeth Gertrude Nee be Elizabeth PaulinePrehn,SophiaPaulinePrehn, Elizabeth Marie Strack, Auguste Dorothea wnsteieid, Uarl August Hinder, Carl Herr mann Ertelt, Franz Emil Heinze, Richard Anton Konler, unstave Adolph Honzner, Julias Richard Scholz, Carl Friedrieh Scharf . August Carl Bcnarf, Adolph Ernst Seidel Ernst Theodor Selke. The Ftrlke at Welbel'n Brewery. The brewers' strike at Weibel's brewery still continues. Mr. Weibel has been sick most of the time since the strike commenced, He has offered to let the strikers come back and also sent for a committee of ten men, bnt they nave not sent any yet. He says that be will give the men the brewery, bnt it is beyond his power to give them the earth. He has done nothing toward having the men arrested who are supposed to be boycotting his beer. While one of his de livery wagons in charge of his agent, James J. MoMabon, was standing in front of Registrar O'Eeefe's place yesterday some body, probably a striker, nn wrenched the nut off one of the wheels while McMahon was in the saloon. After the team started up the wheel came off and McMahon was thrown to the ground, but he was not badly injured. Friends of Mr. Weibel say that the statements in yesterday's News signed by Brewers' nnion No. 14 contained many mis representations. THE SYNDICATE. Far the Control of the Manufacture of Arms and Ammunition. A Boston press dispatch yesterday has it that a Boston man, a member of the firm of Schaefer & Co., saya that it is true that the large manufacturers in ammnnition have been buying up and crowding out the smaller companies, and, with the exception of the American Buckle company (makers of the A. B. C. paper shells), of New Haven, Conn they are controlling the entire sales in the United States on ammujrition, and making very large shipments to foreign countries These large manufacturers have formed a syn dicate, known as the Ammnnition Manufac turers' association, having their headquarters in New York, with an appointed commis sioner to look out for the welfare of the man nfacturers. The syndicate consists ot the Winchester Kepeating Arms company, the Union Metallic Cartridge company, the United States Cart ridge company, and the American Metallio Cartridge company, all of which are working nnder an agreement. This association has been doing good work in elevating a standard schedule ot pnees binding the various gun dealers to sell their goods at an affixed price tnrougnont tne united states. The making of hnnting and target rifles has dwindled down to a few makers of first class rifles, the leading manufacturers being the Maxlin Firearms company, the Winches ter Repeating Arms company, the Massachu setts Arms company, the J.Stevens company, F. Wesson, the Colt Patent Firearms company and the Bullard Arms company. As yet no syndicate has been formed in rifles and it is doubted very much whether steps will be taken in that direction. The manufacture of breech-loading shotguns of low and medium priced grades has been carried on chiefly in" Belgium and England, hence no combination can be settled on them. It it a Canons Fact That the body is now more susceptible to benefit from medieine than at any other sea son. - Hence the importance.of taking Hood's Sarsaparilla now when it will do yon the most good. It is really wonderful for puri fying and enriching the blood, creating an appetite and giving a healthy tone to the wh'ole system. Be sore to get Hood's Sarsa parilla, which is peculiar to itself. FAIR HAVEN. Surprise Presentation t an ex-Sunday School Superintendent of the Id. E. Church The St. JTames Chnreh Ladies Other matters.

Dowd has been super intendent for the past four years. He now retires from that position and Sunday last was his last service. One pleasing feature of the session was the presentation to Mr. Dowd of a handsome tea and coffee service by his friends as a token of their esteem and love. The presentation speech was made by the pastor, Rev. Mr. Goodenough, to which Mr. Dowd responded very feelingly. Mr. F. J. Mansfield, of the firm of F.Mansfield & Sons, is the new superintendent. He has been for years past a teacher in the school and deeply interested in its welfare. The ladies of St. James' church will give a supper and sale of fancy articles and an en tertainment on Wednesday evening, April 4. Supper from 5:30 to 7:30; sale and entertain ment to follow.

The twenty-seven honr walking match that is to be held at the Quinnipiao rink will commence Friday night, and it promises to be quite an athletic event. There will be four prizes, aggregating $150. It is expected that a number of the walkers who participated in the recent walking contest at Ansonia will enter for the match. But few local pedes trians have as yet entered the list, although the entrance fee ($5) is considered quite low. Two persons were immersed at the Grand avenne church yesterday. The annual W.C.T.U. meeting, which will be held in the city to-day, will be largely at tended by the members of the Fair Haven nnion. It is -stated by those who know that the music for Easter will be finer this year than nsual. Mrs. P. S. Evans' sister, Mrs. Randall of Brooklyn, is paying her a visit. George H. Cor bin, who some time since lo cated at Riverside, Cal., has of late been in vesting qnite extensively in real estate in that locality. "The vibratory law of progress" is the sub ject of a new lecture which Kev. Dr. Hovey now of Bridgeport, is to deliver this spring.
