Cook vs. the city -of Bridgeport and borough of West Stratford before a committee consisting of Messrs. Bristol and Hull of New Haven and Miles of Milford came to an end yesterday. The case is known as the "Yellow Mill Pond Case" and has been continued for a long time. The question is what shall be paid to Mr. Cook for the property. The report of the commit tee may be expected in a day or two. It was claimed that the property iss worth to Mr. Cook $3,000 per-year, but the city authorities differ from that opinion and think the prop erty ought to be transferred to the city for publio use for a small sum. an old commission Among the Archives of an Old New Ha ven Lady.

Hotehklsa Gives an Account of n Trip She Took Tkrosih Norway and Sweden. Although a rainy-night, a refined and cul tured audience of about one hundred ladies and gentlemen attended a lecture delivered at the New Haven House parlors last evening by Mrs. W. H. Hotchkiss of this city, who with a vivid, forcible and clear narration and the aid of admirable stereoscopic views took tier hearers on a trip through Norway and Sweden. This was the first lecture of the series. She described all the scenes as far north as the North cape. Next Monday evening she will give the concluding lecture. The lecture was very highly commended and the views of grand and imposing scenery were enthusiastically applauded. She started last night from Gotenbarg, Sweden. At this point was given a beautiful view of tne isaltespannare, or girdle duellists, a bronze Btatue. It stands on a granite ped estal, 'around which are four reliefs.' One represents drinking,another where the lover's friend tries to embrace the struggling girl while her lover is furious with jealousy, and another the beginning of the combat. The statue represents the two men tied together at the waist, each with a knife, fighting for dear life. This kind of fighting, where the combatants are tied ' together, was mostly customary in southern Sweden. - - Mrs. Hotchkiss said that as the party ar rived in the evening they went to the con cert garden, where they remained until after 11 o'clock in the strange twilight of the far north, where one oould read, yet all objects in the distance were enveloped in a gauzy veil which made it all the more like a dream than reality. All who were at the various tables in the garden were very quiet. When they.retired they found the beds deep and not much wider than comns. At daylight start was made for the Polhemslocks, eon structed in 1716. This canal connects the Baltic' with the Kallegat. The first one was so narrow that under Charles XII. they were abandoned. Another was oonetructed which proved too small for navigation, and nnaiiy lanrer ones were made. V The falls of Trollnattan, in tneir magnin cence. were next shown. .Near them are many sawmills which made the scene an im posing one. The city of Christiana, the cap ital of Norway, was shown and a description of it given. Then came the castle. The Victoria Terrasse, a building opposite the castle, is one of the most beautiful in Nor way. A few years ago the place was inhab ited by the lowest class of . people, but the shanties were torn down and three large buildings erected, each containing twenty small dwellings. On the first floor are stores and fish markets. The buildings have the latest improvements, with electrio lights and ice ventilators in summer. The Viking ships were shown. They were found in 1880 in the so-called KingshUI, as only old kings were buried in tneir ships. Pictures of these grave mounds were exhib ited. Tiedeman, a painter of peasant life. now dead, came next. The picture of Oscar hall, the only castle in Norway, with its winding paths and pleasant surroundings, was erand.. , - The party proceded on its trip over moun tains to the copper mines where the temper ature was M", nine montns is winter, and the mountains are at' all times covered with snow. Reindeer moss was seen. Thoroudihein, formerly called Nldaros un til the Information, was next visited. It is a pleasant place and has crown into a mercan tile place. They then started by boat for the riorth cape. The UiantesB' brother Is seen He tried to help her while pursued by Hes- mender and shot him through the hat. All were changed to atone, and a hole in the mountain shows where the shot took effect Hesmender a mountain, is the sentinel of the Arctic ocean. At this point the polar circle is crossed at midnight at 66 50', and the party see the midnight sun at just above the horizon. The view of this sun la grand. Svartisen, situated on an island forty-four miles long and covered with ice, comes next; and then Lofoden, with its gigantic rocks and fisheries along beneath it. The scene of these mountains and these fisheries and boats caotivated all. Tromsoe is situated on an island a mile long and enclosed by mountains and glaciers 4.000 feet high. The place was established in 1794. Pianos are found in nearly all of the homes, and in the schools singing and dancing are taught. They have telephones and a monthly paper. Pictures of the whale batteries are shown ana tne speaker gave a very interesting account of how they are caught. The party visited the .Laplanders, and the characteristics of those people and how they live were fully described. In one hut that Mrs. Hotchkiss visited she knew all the oc cupants. These people formerly put stone and steel in graves to make a fire, as they thought it waa very cold. A description of the reindeer was given. She says they are not as pretty as stags, holding their heads low as if their herns were a burden. Those who see reindeer are disappointed without knowing why. The winter sleighs, the tents and the shoes of the .Laplanders were exhibited, and then the second midnight son brought forth rap turous applause. This was two degrees above the horizon at midnight, when it looks sleepy and tires the eyes, but by 1 o'clock it is so brilliant that one cannot look at it. The sun shines continually for eighty-eight days and is not seen from November 21 to January 21. jdammertest. tne most nortnern town, was at last reached.

The people have blue glass in their windows on account of the continued shining of the sun for so lone a time.

Indeed, so large was its sale, there grew-to oe a general struor- etle all over tne country to nullity its trade mark, that all might have the right to use it; but it all ended in favor of the disooverer,Dr. Thompson of Lowell, Mass. There is now not a place in the United States where it ia not on sale. It takes the place of medicine and. electricity in .paralysis, of stimulants among the drinkers, and of nervine amons the nervous weakly women, with whom it ia very popular.
