The internal revenue collector has been or dered to send oat all his deputies on these expeditions.

Gathering; or Republicans In New Ha ven To-NIght Tbe Preliminary mass Convention at the Hyperion To-Niarht To-IHorroWa Convention The Dis trict Convention To-lHorrow. To-night the chief hotels of New Haven will be alive with delegates to the Repub lican State convention. The conven tion will select four delegates-at-large to represent Connecticut Republicans at the national Republican convention to be held at Chicago June 19. It will assemble at the Hyperion at 10 o'clock- to-morrow for the purpose. There will also be a mass conven tion at the Hyperion this evening, at which the committee on credentials, the committee on permanent organization and the com mittee on resolutions for the convention to morrow morning will be chosen. Thus a considerable part of the work of the conven tion will be accomplished to-night. This is quite a departure from the old methods. To morrow after the State convention adjourns. which it is expected will be at 12 o'clock noon, the district conventions will meet. These are the congressional district conven tions. These conventions will select the re mainder of the delegates to the Chicago con vention, each district convention selecting two delegates ana two alternates.. By the rules adopted at the last State con vention no delegate to the national conven tion, or member of the State central com mittee, can be appointed nor platform adopted Detore iu o'clock to-morrow. It is also quite probable that the mass meeting to-night will not adjourn until some ef the war horses have had a c&ance to air a little oratory. Among , those to attend the convention are President Dewell of the Chamber, of Commerce, ex-Collector A. J. users, President Howarth of the Young Men s Republican club and Alderman Dick- erman of this city, ex-Senater James Graham of West Haven, Connty Commissioner Bur leigh, Capt. s. P.

Cool judgment in the selection of candidates and a proper recognition of the opportunities that are before the party to-day will insure a Republican story next novemoer. -rne state snouia send an pledged and an unhampered delegation to the national convention. It is in the position of one of the pivotal States, and comes early in the list in the call of State?. Its representatives may have an opportunity to exert an influence in the conven tion beyond what the small number of votes they carry can give. Men should be selected who will recognize toe raea tnat amy to tlie Hepublicaa par ty and the country should eovern their ni.Mnn. rather than mere personal friendships or individ ual preferences. Connecticut's delegates should be in a position to have free and full counsel with the best informed, and to act with the wisest and best men who will gather at Chicago in June. OTHER POLITICAL JOTTINGS. One Less Democratic Candidate Cleve land Will Not Kan Again. The Hon. Edward Spieer Cleveland pub lishes a letter in last evening's Hartford Times withdrawing his name as a candidate for Governor in the coming election.

In his letter, and in a personal interview, he says that "under no circum stances" will he consent to be a candidate, and he desires this emphatic and unalterable decision to be made public.

Meals are furnished on this car go ing and returning. The delegation will leave June 1 or 2, meeting the car at Springfield. At St. Couis the delegation will have quar ters at the Planters' Hotel. LAID AT REST. Faneral of An Estimable Lady. The funeral servioes over the remains of the late Mrs. E. A. Mitchell took place yes terday afternoon. After a brief service at ths late home of the deceased, at which only the family and immediate relatives were present, the body was conveyed to St. Paul's church, where the publio ceremonies took place. There was a large attendance of friends at the church. The casket was de posited upon a catafalque in front of the chancel railing. Among the congregation was a company of little children from English Hall Sunday school, of which Mrs. Mitchell has been a most generous friend for many years. At the top of the chancel steps ia the center was placed a fern tree whose spreading branches overshadowed the casket, and smaller palms and ferns were arranged on either aide of the bier. A beautiful wreath of ivy and lilies of the valley, one of pansies ana a numoer ot palm branches rest ed on the casket, which was covered with t black cloth. The Rev. Mr. Lines of St. Paul's church conducted the service, assisted by the Rev. Mr. Sawyer, Rev.

The remains were interred in Ev ergreen cemetery, whither they were follow ed by a number of friends and relatives in carriages. MURDER IN DANBVRY. A. wonnieii lent man Receives a Deadly Blew From a Saloon Keep er's Flat. Danburv, Conn., May 14. Between 6 and 7 o'clock this morning a messenger informed Officsr Reed that a man had been found dead, murdered it was supposed in Turner street. The officer hastened to the locality and found the mutilated body of Francis Burns, a young man of twenty-six years, who resided with his parents on Grand street. No. 21 Turner street is a long two story frame building, with a store below, This store is owned by John MoNiff and conducted as a grocery. Directly in the rear of this is an old tnmble-down building or two stones, occupied as a tenement house. The lower noor is unoccupied, and an nn- painted wooden door opens into ' a short hallway, whence a flight of stairs lead to the rooms above occupied by Mrs. Mary Ryan. "' These two buildings are separated by narrow yard. in tms yard tne souffle in which the fatal blow was struck oeourred, and .- Burns was removed to Mrs. Ryan's apartments where be breathed his last. The story told to the officers and Medioal Examiner Wile by MoNiff is that be tween 11 and 12 o'clock last night as he was preDarincr to go to bed someone came to his house and told him someone was break ins into his place of business. Patting on his clothes he went into tne back yard and in the dark discovered a man going down to ward the barn with something in his hand. Ceming closeT he saw that the man had sev eral bottles and he ordered him to drop them, accompanying the order with a blow on the bead. The man dropped like a log. Michael Fickey and Pinkey Ry an saw McNiff standing over the un conscious and bleeding form of Burns, and oae of them made the remark that it was too bad to leave him there. The three men then picked np the unconscious man and carried or rather dragged him into Mrs. Ryan's rooms. Burns' entire body was cov ered with braises and scars. At the back, of his ear was a long cnt - and another was con spiouous on the throat. The top and side of the head were also badly bruised. A mark on his hand was evidently made by being stepped on. John McNiff , who was arrested for the crime, is a well known saloon keeper. He is proprietor of a place on White street and formerly in business with his Drotner on Main street near the park. Coroner Holt will hold an inquest to-morrow on the body of til autfared. nan. BOARD OF Ot)Neit,Mrn A ueod Deal r Tatalft t.t NlKht-Several Matter In XThtrfc (tie Board Did Nt ('!( Wltn the Board or AldrtMvn Fentrth t July. There was quite a nnmtw of seals vacant in the oonnoileoanlo chamber at the tneettng of that body last night. Councilman Manning petitioned that f 100 be appropriated from the contingent fund for national salute on July 4. Councilman Campbell thought there should be tannic and made such an amendment, but the chair declared it out of order. Councilman Lane said there wasn't any band stand yet. It was voted to give unanimous consent for the $100 appropriation. Then Councilman Campbell moved that $100 be appropriated for music, and as the chair thought such a matter should be re ferred to the proper committee the motion was lost. It was then referred to the com mittee on appropriations. The petition of J. J. MoMann for appoint ment as special constable was ret erred, while r- rank bieDert's petition was granted. Tbe Gibbs street matter oame up and there was quite a squabble over it. A re monstrance signed by A. Holt, petitioning that tbe board do not pass the order of the street committee to sidewalk and grade that street, was read, and after one or two mem bers had risen to explain the remonstrance tbe chair stated that as the order or the street committee had not been read it would be best to wait until the order was reached and then discuss the whole matter. Quite a batch of petitions were concurred in when the order of the street committee on Gibbs street was reached. The chair over looked the remonstrance and the order was passed before the friends of the remonstrance hardly knew it. Every member of the street committee wore a broad grin at this turn, but a mem ber moved to reconsider so as to right the chair. Councilman Burton said he had been told that certain parties on that street were trying to get Mr. Holt out of the street. The damages for the improvement were more than he could bear. lie had not seen Mr. Holt. Each member of the street committee made a little speech explaining that three hearings had been given to the petition. Councilman Thompson wound np the testimony. He felt called to speak as it was a sort of an "expe rience" meeting. All agreed that it would be foolish to recommit the petition. The amendment to recommit the petition to the street committee was lost and the or der was passed. Some time ago Corporation Counsel Dris coll was appealed to for his opinion as to the legality ot tbe present method of too-dress ing streets. He handed in his report last night. He says that tne present system con sists of a uniform and even covering of broken stones, extending from gutter to gut ter, one foot in depth and rolled down hard He says that hardening comes within the de finition of a pavement and cites an opinion In Chicago assessments were made for gravel ing streets and the Superior court held that the assessments were valid. In his opinion the court of common council has power, it it sees he, to assess for a rea sonable part of the cost of the present system of hardening.' It also has the power to or der such hardening to be made at public ex pense without any special assessment against adjoining property owners. The present system of hardening is not equal to what is commonly understood as paving, and yet it is more than is commonly understood as ordin ary repairs. Councilman Fleischner moved that the part relating to tne work being done at public expense be accepted. Councilman Gessner moved that the report be accepted and a vote of thanks be extended to the corporation counsel for his promptness. This caused laughter. Councilman Manning wanted it tamed lor printing so tnat all could study it, While (Jouncilman Martin retorted that it would be printed in the journal anvwav. and anyone who wanted to learn its phraseology oy neari couia ao so men. Councilman Campbell remarked that all this talk was a waste of time. The council had asked Mr. Drisooll for a report and he had given it. It was customary to accept it and on motion it was so voted. Alderman Winchell's resolution that Orange street between Humphrey street and Mill river be top dressed and hardened met with opposition. One or two said the people ont that way were rich and could afford to pay for the improvement, bnt thev were im mediately floored by Councilman Thompson telling them that they were perfectly willing to pay ior it. xt was voted to indefinitely postpone the matter. A vote to reconsider at this meeting was lost, and the petition will lay over ior one month. Alderman Winchell's substitute resolution to Councilman Fleischner's . resolution on the sub-dividing of wards into voting dis tricts, which was passed by the beard of aiaermen, came np tor concurrence. Councilman Fleischner said he could not see why his resolution was killed. The ether board always killed anything of importance coming from the board of oouncilmen, which the other board looked down upon as an in farior body. He thought the board of coun- cilmen knew just as much and several degrees more. He favored the indefinite postpone ment of Alderman Winchell's substitute resolution. It was so voted. With most of the members out of order and several on their feetl a motion to adjourn was lost. A resolution by Mr. Campbell ordering the street committee to see that the order for the top-dressing of Franklin, Ham ilton and Wallace streets was carried out was passed. A motion to see that the order for recurbing and sidewalking of Hamilton street be done was carried, and tbe board adjourned. Obituary Nates. Charles A.

Acknowledgement to Yale Seminary. The superintendent of city missions, Rev, W. D. Mosman. makes hearty acknowledge ment to the members of Yale seminary for their efficient service during the seminary year now closing.

Mr. Eugene C. Webster has been of great assistance in organizing larger work among the students of both the seminary and aca demical departments of the university than ever before, resulting in the opening of a third mission hall in a part of the city where it was greatly needed. Mr. George C. Weiss and Mr. D. E. Burtner have given special attention to the singing at the Sabbath ser vices at the central rooms. Mr. Morrison Weimer has had the charge of one of the mission halls during a part of the year, and has been engaged for special work in the city missions during the summer. Messrs. Keller, Shipman, Gunn and Bigelow have conducted meetings regularly week by week during almost the entire year. Mr. Robert L. Marsh for a time had charge of meetings at the central rooms every- evening of the week. Messrs. Daniels and McCartney have done difficult work in exploring parts of the city previously unknown.
