ade In ft ambers tn Cams'- Brltad
Cakt TfcBBT, Niantic, Aug. 20. The Sec
ond regiment left New Haven soon, after 8
o'clock this .morning on-a special train in
charge of Conductor George Mason. The
train servioe provided by the Consolidated
railroad was as' good as : could be desired.
When the train arrived at Niantic the men
were soon in marohing order and on their
way to the camp, whioh is a short distance
north of the depot. The large amount of
-baggage to be used at camp was taken out of
the baggage cars of the train and loaded on
wagons whioh were waiting to transport the
goods to Camp Terry. The Second regiment
was the first to . arrive at the camp. ' The
Fourteenth regiment arrived soon after, es
corted by the Wheeler & Wilson or Fourth
band, George Streit leader. The Third regi
ment arrived later, after which came the
Fifth battalion of three companies and the
First regiment. The Guilford light battery
being located nearer than any other of State
troops was the first of the State militia to en
ter the camp.
The camp ground is as fine as could be
desired and is conveniently laid out, the ar
rangement being similar to previous en
campments. The long rows of tents are near the mess
houses on the north side of the ground.
me large open space soutn of the tents is
spacious enough for all of the regiments- to
drill in independently.
mere are about 67 acree of land in the
camp ground owned by the State. The first
tract was purchased in 1882, and an adjoin
ing tract was bought later.
On the south side of the camp ground, ar
ranged in a semicircle, are officers' tents,
which are occupied by commissary general,
quartermaster general, governor, adjutant
general, surgeon general, paymaster general,
executive secretary and several tents for
Near these tents is another half circle of
tents, which are occupied by the following
officers, all of whom are brigade officers: Ad
jutant general, assistant adjutant general of
Drigade, brigadier general, brigade quarter
master, aide de camp, brigade inspector of
rifle practice, brigade medical director, brig
ade engineer and signal offioer, b'rigadeorder
ly, brigade commissary and chief trumpeter.
Several officers of the National guard were
in camp over Snnday, including Brigadier
General C. J. Fox, surgeon general; Briga
dier General Charles Olmstead, quartermas
ter general; George M. White, assistant adju
tant general; Brigadier General Graham,
Lieutent Colonel Joseph T. Elliott, Major

General Camp and Commissary General John
Thalheimer, the caterer, is one of the
busy men at the camp, particularly at meal
time. He is providing meals for nearly 500
persons. He is engaged to cater for the
following six companies B E I and K of fhe
Second and H and K Of the Third regiment.
Besides the soldiers he feeds a small army
of help and many visitors. Dleble is cater
ing for companies C and F and the field and
' The Second regiment is well represented
and leads the brigade in the number of men
present. The Bines and Light Guards re
ported all of their men present. Some of
Captain ftachers men eame from Quito a dis-
rance to attend camp. They came from East
rXaddam, Bridgeport anoHNewtown. it is re
markable that any captain can get all his
men to camp, as one or more men are often
prevented from attending to camp duty by
some unavoidable circumstance.
There were but few visitors from New
Haven present to-day. Mr. ana Mrs. Chss.
Ball, with their nephew, Johnnie Andrews,
were present. '
One of the most attraouve features of the
day's exercises is the brigade dress parade,
which occurs daily at half-past five. During
the parade to-day, which was reviewed bv
Brigadier General C. P. Graham, the four
regiments with their maohiae gun . platoons,
the Fifth batallion and the Guilford battery
all showed that they were well up in military
tactics. The musio from the four bands,
whioh were consolidated, was grand.
One or more trophies will be offered soon
to the brigade for prizes to be won by the
regimental team shooting during the ceming
autumn. The oamp is well worth a visit.
The beautiful grounds upon whioh the
State is making needed improvements each
year never looked better than at the present
time. The reoent rains nave transferred the
closely mown parade ground into a perfect
lawn whioh, together with the snow-white
canvas, systematically pitched, produced a
most pleasintf effect. All the privates' tents
are new. They are of the wall pattern, af
fording muoh more room than the old style
of A tent. In the peak of each at the front
and rear is arranged an opening or ventilator
and another luxury is the the mattresses
furnished, in the place of tha old straw
bed sacks. Each tent is allowed three of
these, whioh, when spread covers the entire
tent floor, and when not in use can be piled
together at one side out of the way. Each
mattress is stamped with the regiment and
company ; to which it Is assigned in order
that they may be returned each year to the
same tents again. This will probably be an
incentive for eaoh man to preserve his bed
as best he can for future nse. This with the
new and commodious tent is another
step the State has taken toward the health
and comfort of the enlisted men, who will
certainly appreciate the departure. Another
noticeable feature about the oamp is that all
the tents for the field and staff of each
regiment are entirely new, and consequently
correspond with the bright quarters of the
Saturday and Sunday were busy days in
getting things in readiness for the arrival of
the ttoops. The quartermasters of the several
regiments with their assistants were on hand
by noon of the former day, and at once set to
work drawing from the brigade quartermas
ter the necessary supplies. The hospital
stewards also reported at the same time' and
arranged the hospital stores for the week.
Other officers came down during the day, put
their quarters, in order, and some, whose
presence required them, returned home Sun-
day to eome into camp with their regiments.
As eaoh regiment arrived in camp and be-
fore being dismissed to their . quarters, their
adjutants were reauired to road to them

PROPOSED If BW ORDINANCES.
A measure to Llchten the Burden t
Sewer Asaesenaeata on People or Small
Means An Ordinance for the Benefit
or the Pasue Health Better Sanitary
Plumelng The Hacknea at the De
pot. The committee on ordinances had a large
amount of business before It last evening,
but succeeded and had considerable discus
sion. No less than six proposed new ordi
nances were before it for consideration and of
these four were tabled for further considera
tion, one was referred to a sub-committee
and the petitioners for the other were given
leave to withdraw. The first proposed change
in the legislation of the eity to be taken up
was the amendment to section 12 oaV the city
ordinances, relating to assessing and paying
benefits and damages for city improvements.
The petitioners desire to relieve the poor
man, especially with reference to the payment
of a sewer assessment In bulk. At present
many a man is nnable to meet a bill for sewer
benefits when it becomes due and is taxed
the usual interest for non-payment .when the
time for payment has expired. These men.
are not disposed to ignore any claims the city
may have on them and the present arrange
ment is a burden to them. It is to lighten
this burden that the proposed ordinance is
offered. The ordinance which was printed in
the Courier two weeks ago proposes to di
vide . the assessments into three parts, the
first to be paid on or before May 1, following
the date of the assessment, the second one
year from that date and the third
still another year later. The assessed
must notify the tax collector within fifty-five
days following the date of assessment if he
desires to take advantage of the apportion
ment clause of the assessment laws. Other
wise at the end of the period of notification
the collector will place a lien on the proper
ty. Judge Sheldon and Judge Pickett ap
peared before the committee last evening in
favor ef the proposed ordinance. The latter
expressed the opinion that the tax collector
may now have sufficient discretionary power
to render the proposed ordinance rmneffwwa-
ry. on this point tne uage was uncertain.
He left a copy of the statute of Rhode Isl
and relating to the same matter. It was
from this statute that the new ordinance
was drafted. The matter was tabled until
the next meeting of the committee, .when a
full bearing on the subject will be given
with the tax collector and .corporation; coun
sel present. " "
Prof. Brewer, of the board of health, ap
peared in support of an ordinance proposing
to regulate drainage and plumbing in the
city. This is a question of vital importance
to the community owing to the large number
of typhoid fever eases and other diseases of a
like nature recently reported; It is contend
ed that very frequently the plumbing in
houses is outrageously bad and should be
regulated. The professor said that the rime
would come when such a measure would
have to be passed. . As it now is. oases are
continually coming to the notice of the health
board where life is being sacrificed in rented
houses because of defective plumbing. The
number of cases where worthy people come to
the office of the health department and tell
of the loss of children due to defective
plumbing in their dwellings is very large.
The time demands the passage of an ordi
nance relating to these matters. The pro
posed ordinance in its present form is con
sidered insufficient, as it refers to new houses
alone. The professor was of the opinion that
the matter could be regulated and proper
plumbing compelled in new houses that are
rented, but he doubted the city's power to
force a man to alter the plumbing in an old
house occupied by the owner. Councilman
Fleischner thought that . good plumbing
should be required in old as well as new
houses, and that unless it could be enforced
in both there would be no UBe of trying
to enforce .it - in either. Some
people are ' only too glad to hire
cheap plumbers. The council men would give
the health board full power to regulate this
matter, which is of suoh vital importance to
the publio welfare. The matter was continued
to the next meeting, when it is hoped to have
the draft of a better ordinance than the one
now before the committee.
Alderman Dailey, from the oommittee ap
pointed to draft a suitable ordinance relating
to hacks and - hackmen at the Union depot,
reported the following: Amend section 8,
part 6, page 98, by-laws of the city of New
Haven, so that the'same when amended shall
read: All publio carriages, express wagons,
baggage wagons, omnibuses or stages, when
waiting for employment in the vioinity of the
Union depot on Union avenue in aaid city,
shall be located on the opposite side of Union
avenue, to wit, on the westerly side of
said Union avenue. No driver or
person having the custody or charge
of any such public carriage, express waeon.
baggage wagon, omnibus or stage shall allow
or permit the same to block op or obstruct
traffic or travel on the easterly side of said
Union avenue opposite said depot, or block
up or obstruct any crosswalk in front of aaid
depot for a longer period of time than is ab
solutely necessary to discharge or reosive
passengers or baggage.
All owners, drivers or other persons when
seeking employment at said depot, either so
liciting, receiving or negotiating for the same,
shall stand within said depot at the northern
or southern exit of said depot, which exits
run east and west from the platform on
the easterly side of said depot to the
westerly side of said depot. Said owners,
devices or other persons seeking employment
shall stand behind an iron railing running
parallel with with such northerly or souther
ly exists, which railing shall be five feet dis
tant from the wall and not less than forty
inches high. And no snoh owner, driver or
other person shall solicit, receive or negotiate
employment within two hundred feet of said
Union depot exoept while standing in said
northerly or southerly exits as aforesaid.
Any person convicted of violating any breach
of thia ordinance, for the first offense shall
pay a penality of not more than (20, and for
the second offense against this ordinance
within twelve months his drivers' license
shall be revoked and eaneelled, and he shall
not receive another for the apace of six
months from the date of said revocation.
After a lengthy discussion in which several
of the oommittee adhs&red strictly to the
View that the railroad company should fur
nish better accommodations for the hackmen
than those proposed. The matter was tabled
on motion of Councilman McHngh.
A petition praying for an ordinance .to pro
hibit the crying of wares through the streets
during the morning hours, and stating that it
reterred particularly to rag-pioxers, came up
for action. Alderman Dailey aaid that the
ordinanoe, if passed, referring especially to
rag-pickers, would not be worth the paper it
wss written on as it would be legislating
against a particular class. In his opinion the
present section 44 reaches any outcry or other
disturbing noise and made the proposed ordi
nance unnecessary: The petitioners were
given leave to withdraw.
A desire to lessen the dangers surrounding
elevators and elevator wells has taken form
in the shape of a petition for an ordinanoe
providing means to minimize the perils con
nected therewith. Alderman MeGann,
Counoilmen Wardell and Manning were ap
pointed a oommittee to investigate the mat-,
The committee voted to table the petition
of the board of publio works for an ordinanoe
prohibiting the construction of cesspool ba
sins underneath a sidewalk or roadway or
f ered that the board be notified that there
would be a hearing on the "petition - at the
next meeting and adjourned. '
The regular weekly prayer and conference
meeting of the Dwight Place Congregational
ohurch will be held at the residence of Mr.
H. W. Smith, 609 Elm street, this (Tuesday)
evening at 7:45 O'clock.

is in keeping with a resolution adopted by

which provided for. the establishment of four
classes of players, the status of the players to
be determined by the votes of the clubs in
the association. This classification matches
players of nearly equal skill in the prize

Par the Supremacy Pat Men'a Strug
gle. A correspondent writes: . "There was such
a rousing contest for the victory among some
of New Haven's fat men very recently that
friends and admirers of the aforesaid bulky
fellows declare the affair ought not to go un
noticed by the New Press. The bulky men
met at Buff's Grove near No Man's Land,
that remarkable tract of land on the border
of East Haven and Branford whioh tradition
says is owned by nobody. Upon this tract of
land the contestants stepped and awe fell up
on the birds, the ants, the toads and the
crickets of the vioinity, for as these heavy
weights stepped upon the tract the earth it
self trembled visibly. The contest was awe
inspiring. It was a foot-race and as the pon
derous men smote the yielding turf and grav

gravely asserted, a commotion out at sea, and
leviathans of the deep drew nearer to shore
to see the cause of the nnwonted commotion.

Charley Wirtz, the genial cigar manufacturer
of East street, near State. All agree that if
he had not stumbled and fell, nearly
wrecking one of his legs, he wonld certainly
have won the first prize, for even with his
mishap he raised his avoirdupois with such
celerity and resumed the race with suoh
agility aa to win the third prize, . causing
his friend Buchter, who made a valiant
pull for victor v, to lose his final ohanoe
for distinction 'in the struggle. The fun
waa greatly enjoyed, and wound up with a
