. How They Take the Novel Situation
In the Nutmeg- state.
Apropos of the political exoitement now

public interest felt as to what will be the
result of the present gubernatorial contest,
is a elance at the rival candidates them

Colonel Rutherford Trowbridge of this
city was v wedded to Miss May W.
Farrell, daughter of Franklin Farrell of
AnBonia, at the Farrell residence in Anso-
nia yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock, v
The wedding .was of a quiet character,
only the immediate family and relatives
being present. Guests were present from
New York, Philadelphia, Boston and New
Haren. A special oar from this city at 4
o'clock, in the afternoon carried about forty
t-of the New Haven members of the Trow
bridge family to Ansonia. ' .
The handsome Farrell residence on Cliff
street, Ansonia, was exquisitely decorated
for the occasion. Everything had been
placed under the supervision of Caterer
Sherry of New York city and his assistants.
xne result of tneir la Dora was meniy gran-
f vine to the eves of the (meats. Music

disposing of an article Mrs. Watrous sent

that they were at liberty to come and

Annual Meeting.
The stockholders of the Fair Haven and
Westville Horse Railroad company held
their annual meeting at the office of the

A serious accident was probably averted
on the Derby road yesterday morning at
the Derby station. As it was, two passen
ger trains came in collision, doing no par
ticular damage, however, except to the lo
comotives and delaying traffic for an hour
or more. The accident was caused by the
breaking of the coupling pin, whion al
lowed the forward end of the train from
New Haven to run out on the main track
from the siding just as the Botsford train
was swung around into the station. The
engines met head on. No one was hurt of
the passengers beyond a thorough shaking.
Judge Robinson Decides in Favor of
the Commissioners.
Judge Robinson has sustained the de
murrer brought by the Fairfield county
commissioners in the case brought against
them by John Donavan of Shelton to show
why they shouldn't grant him a liquor li
cense. Donavan claimed that the no-license
vote in Shelton at the last October election
was null and void because the ballots were
placed in the same envelope with the town
ticket. The defendants held that the in
tent of the law had been complied with
and that as there was a majority for no li
cense the commissioners could not grant
licenses in the town -of Huntington. Judge
icobinson sustains this demurrer. The ap
peal will probably be taken to the supreme

. Bill Discussed Last Evening by
the New Haven Bulldlnc Associa
The New Haven Building and Loam
sociation met last evening in their rooms
in the Courier building -and there were
present representatives from , similar as
sociations in this oity, Hartford, Bridge
port, Norwalk and Middletown. A draft
of a general law was read by Mr. Brill of
Hartford for legalizing and simplifying
the incorporation of local building asso
ciations, surrounding them with the proper
safeguards, and placing them under the
control of the state authorities. A con
ference will be held in Hartford the 29th
of this month at 2 p. m., in the rooms of
the Hartford association, at which each
association will be represented by one
delegate. At this conference they will dis
cuss the features of this law, make what
ever amendments are necessary and pre
pare it for its proper presentation to the
legislature. . The representative from this
association will be Harry W. Asher, who is
its attorney. Among those present were
T. H. Bylands of Bridgeport, Mr. Chap
man of Hartford, Mr. Craig of Middletown
and B. E. Baldwin of this city.
- The draft of the law as read embodies
in the main the laws of the state of Massa
chusetts relating to co pperative'banks, as
building associations are so called ini that
state.- .-. -(
In the discussions on ' the subject a
strong feeling in favor of the law was
evinced. - This is probably the way it win

throughout the state. - -

Leading New Haven Thinker
Bald. ' -
Our new mayor's message continues to
attract the attention of the newspapers
from its novelty and originality.- The New
York Commercial Advertiser, ope of whose
editors is a former New Haven boy, de
votes a leader to it, giving some humorous
touches ' regarding it, while ' admiring its
spirit of independence and its originality.
It commends the band concert project in
remarks in the writer's best vein of humor,.
approves of the recommendation for the
annexation of Westville, which it takes for
granted must be a' good thing, having no
idea where Westville is, and gives a neat
thrust at the single tax on land business
and the Edward Bellamy tone of the roes
age. -

and says: ''Mayor Sargent of New Haven
boldly oaus for tne acquisition and opera
tion by tne city of all street railway lines,

plants, and openly advocates the single, tax
program of Henry George. The new mayor
is at tne. nead of tne largest Hardware man
ufacturing business in the united States,
What a shock tne dry-as-dust lacumes ot
Yale college, must have experienced upon

said one ot our leading tmnxers or
national fame regarding Mr. Sargent: I am
glad of his message and its originality, its
fearle sness and its odddi ties, its recom
mendations and its absurdities, as for in
stance, its Henry (Jeorgism sentiment,
But New Haven needs a mayor once in
while who steps out of the ordinary rou
tine, out of the ordinary rut. Mr. Sargent,
it is true, takes a long look ahead. Some
of the ideas and projects he advocates can
not be carried out during this and proba
bly several more generations. Still it is
all touched with the idea that New Haven
has great possibilities before it and
future of no small importance, it is
erowine city. - It , is well to look ahead.
Mr. Sanzent looks ahead. He -shows also
a tendency by the way to socialism. He
shows a tendency to fall in with the
ideas of the author of "Looking Back
ward." But he is right in looking
ahead. This oity is to be a far more popu
lous city someday, and not far distant
than it now is. Its railroad lines and com
munications, its water front, its impor
tance as a shipping and commercial center
all bespeak this. Mayor Sargent has cer
tainly given tne public tood tor . tnougnt.
And would you believe it? There was a
tinge of socialism in the - legislating done
in old New England, away back in the
old Puritan days, in the early times in our
Colonial history, as the records plainly
show, when the law stepped m to regulate
what price should be paid in various de
partments of labor, all ' this right here in
our New England colonies. It is interest
ing in this respect to look backward. But
as I said the new mayor has given the pub
lic food for thought and awakened an in
terest which cannot but be nealtnlul, no
matter if some of his ideas are fanciful or
impracticable, or at least of doubtful

Interest Excited AmongC'the Hem-
hen of the Force as 4o Who Will
he Appointed -Sergeants" Some of
the Likely Candidates
With the additions soon . to ba made to
the police force- and the new; reporting
stations New Haven will have a department
not a little increased in its efficiency. And
of this there is great need because of the
city's recent rapid growth in the suburban
districts, a growth which will no doubt be
vastly greater in the future. ' The present
number of the force doing regular duty is
ninety, inoluding eight doing suparnusuv-
ry, or in other words apprentice duty.
This number inoludes only thepatrolmen,
and will soon be increased to ninety-six by
the police commissioners. Another im
portant addition is to be made to the list
of sergeants. ?
-Of course Captains Hyde and Smith will
have the present lieutenants, Wrinn and
U Keere, to . keep them company in that
official position just so soon as those re
porting stations are ready to receive them.
Captain Wrinn, as he will be then, will
preside over the mil district station, and
many there are who will regret the absence
of hiB genial self from the headquarters,
O'Keef e will take charge of that station
which is to be located somewhere up Dix-
well avenue. With the abolishment ef the
grades of lieutenant and roundsman that
of sergeant will become materially in
creased. The present roundsmen, McBride
and (Joofc, will be advanced to that grade,
the former, it is perhaps safe to predict.
taking the place which will be made vacant
by - Lieutenant wrinn's change of loca
tion. The present sergeants are Bradley
and Driscoll, with Bishop's place still va
. Under the new regime an appointment
of at least six new men to this grade will
be necessary, and who these are to be
forms considerable food for conjecture and
interest, at least among the members of
the force. Applications from more than
half of - the number of patrolmen have
. been made for the promotions. Just how
these promotions are to be made remains
to be seen. It is doubtful if political in
fluence and wire-pulling do- not in more
cases than one secure - the coveted honor,
and the claims of deserving worth disre
garded. A horoscope of the situation is as
follows: Commissioner Andrews is said to
be in favdr of Henry Cowles; Claneeyhas
a leaning toward Officer Beegan; Dillon has
not as yet decided, so the story goes, who
he does . love better McGann or Charlie
Stonnont; Commissioner Smith is inclined
favorably toward Pabor, Baldwin toward
Crocker, and Herbert Benton is somewhat
in a quandary to decide between Orr, BiB-
sell and George L. uyde. in tnis last case
at present the balance is swinging pretty
even, with it hard to prophesy which way
it will eventually turn.
- Perhaps one way of solving the difficul
ty will be to make a sergeant of Officer
Orr, who has always been a highly efficient
officer, and turn the sagacity of Officer
Hyde toward detective work. This officer's
work in this direction has been, since his
acquisition to the force, of a most valuable
nature, when originality and forethought
was needed.
Officers MoGrath, Moore, Phelps, Streit,
Bissell and several others are also men
tioned as prominent candidates. Bissell
is one of the old, efficient and deserving
men of the force. He is a republican. In
the promotion seven at least will be demo
crats, - including the two lieutenants and
roundsmen, and four of the new sergeants,
it would seem, from the natural order of
things, onght to be taken from the repub
lican ranks.
The total number of new men to the
force will be only twelve or thirteen, and
ought to be twice that number at least, so
the commissioners and superintendent
think, but with this addition the force will
be increased in its efficiency very appar
ently, and more protection afforded the
citizens living in the far away districts on
the outskirts ot the city.

A Plan of Work Laid Out A Good
Outlook for That Cup Other Notes
on the Campus.
A meeting of the candidates for the ath
letic team for the coming season was held
in the gymnasium last night. The meet
ing was addressed by President Wolcott
and Captain Williams, and the character
of the work for the year was explained.
About forty men were present and the
outlook is very promising. Heretofore the
men have worked in two divisions, the
long distance men running several miles
a day beside severe exercise in the gymna
sium, while the snort distance men took a
short, brisk walk and practiced starting
tor halt an hour. xms year the whole
number of candidates will be under the
personal supervision of Captain Williams

The long distance men will probably
take a long run once a week with Lloyd
'91 and the sprinters will practice starting
twice a wee in tne cage.
The first week in February the indoor
contests in the gymnasium in the high
jump and shot putting will begin. A
handicap pole -vaulting, contest will be
added. The management will make an
effort to put a strong tug-of-war. team in
the field.
This event was omitted last year as
it met with little response from the college
men. A number of old men are back and
among the new men several candidates
gave good promise last fall on the track at
the field. Altogether the management feel
quite pieasea at tne ouuook.

- Interesting Real Estate Notes.
Early in the spring work will be com
menoed upon, the fine house which Charles
E. P. Sanford will build opposite the
Broadway park. It will be of brick and
will coat-something like $10,000.
Architect C. H. Stilson is justly proud
of his work upon the free public library.
This was completed but a few days ago
and has been much admired by those who
have examined the handsome interior.
Another fine piece of work by Architect
Stilson is given a full page in the Decern-,
ber number of "The Inland Architect."
It is the plan of a $30,000 residence whioh
Mr; Stilson has drawn, for W. A. Ingra
ham, the clock manufacturer of Bristol,
Conn. ' The foundations and half of the
first story are up. The underpining is of
long meadow red brick and terra cotta
with speckled brick, perth amboy, tower
and angular veranda, plate glass windows
and other handsome . finishings. - The
structure will be - completed next fall.
Ahe&er costly house, for S. L. Ihr, son-in-law
of .Mrs., Philip Presenilis, is nearly
completed upon upper . Congress avenue.
Connected with it has been built mn ele
gant ; " brick -- barn, the property

improvements and was erected at a cost
of $5,000. The double house of H. B.

Another- of Architect Stilson's fine pieces
of work is the double house built for F.

Howe and Dwight streets. - This is nearly
completed and is a first class, tenement in
every respect. . .
Among the transactions of note which
have recently occurred in the real estate
market is the sale of the Carrington resi'-l
aence on i-iim Btreet to Mrs. 1. Patter
son of St. Louis, Mo. The sale was com
pleted a few days - since ' through the
agency of Mr. 0. - H Webb. Mrs. Patter
son was . formerly. Miss . Laura Dixon of

Well Remembered hj Old Soldiers 1st
General Devenay who has just died in
Boston, aged seventy, is well remembered
by New Haven old soldiers who heard the
brilliant, patriotic address he delivered at
the time the National encampment, G. A.
B., held its annual session in New Haven
a number of years ago. - General Devens'
record in the volunteer service was as bril
liant as his record on the bench has been
unsullied.. Thrice . wounded at - Ball's
Bluff, Fair Oaks and Chanoellorsville he
was breveted malor creneral for trallantrv
and good conduct at the capture of Rich
mond.: He was attorney general of the
United States from 1877 to 1881, and from
the latter year was one of the justices of
the supreme judicial court of Massachu
setts. He was a true gentleman, a man of
high sense of honor and lofty patriotism.

An East Haven Han Injured.

- Entertainments.
"The Boy Tramp" opened a half week's
engagement to big business last night. The
story of the play abounds in thrilling inci
dents and the interest is sustained to the
end. Madame Neuville as Mildred Earlston
has a difficult role, but she was warmly re
ceived by the audience. Her mad scene is
a realistic piece of acting. Her son, Au-
gustin JNeuville, takes the part of Jack
Sharp,in the impersonation of whioh char
acter he shows considerable ability as a
comedian and keeps his audience in a
mirthful humor.
Pauline Hall in "Ambrita" appears on
Saturday night. Of the ' production the
Philadelphia Beoord says: "The first finale
was very effectively sung, and the solos
were all successful. The chorus is far bet
ter than the average and the organization
appears to be well equipped." The sale of
seats for Saturday night is very large, and
those wishing to secure-seats should not
The first production of "The County
Fair" byaveryoompetent company attract
ed a large audience at the Hyperion theater
last evening. The play is of the same
school with "Joshua Whitcomb" and "The
Old Homestead" and depicts life ' in the
rural districts of Vermont, It tells how
good and kind "Aunt Abigail Prue" is, of
her long courtship with "Otis Tnckner,"
of her charity for the oity waifs "Taggs"
and Tim, of the mortgage on the farm held
by the miserly "Solon Hammerhead" and
how the mortgage is raised by the $3,000
prize won at the county fair by 'the bay
colt "Cold Molasses," the pet of the farm
and the pride of "Tim, the Tanner."
The play is full, of fun, it
points a moral and it pleases
tne audience: The company deserve spe
cial mention. It contains no stars, but
each member has a share in the entertain
ment. Miss Marie Bates made a capital
"Annt Abigail," and Mr. MoGrath was as
droll as he was deliberate in the character
of "Otis Tucker." Miss Dollie Kline was
a sprightly "Taggs" and Miss Warren as
"Sally Greenaway" left nothing to be de
sired. -The play will be repeated to-night
and to-morrow alternoon and evening.
Large audiences are assured.

For the operations of the masons, joiners, carpenters, painters and decorators who are
soon to enter upon a work of transformation in the interior and upon the exterior of
our stores, as we are about to enlarge the boundaries of our already mammoth estab
lishment, the present dimensions being entirely inadequate to transact the immense
volume of business which an appreciative public has bestowed upon our effort. Soon
will materialize one grand, colossal dry goods establishment, elegant in its appoint
ments and exhanstless in its resources, occupying the site of our present stores, together
with the stores now occupied by Howe & Stetson, which will be a great convenience
and boon to the purchasing public and a credit to the city and State. If, in the eon
summation of this gigantic project, some smaller and less enterprising plana have been
interfered with, it cannot be helped. " Twere ever thus," and is only another example
of the "survival of the fittest," and laments in public print that "the old store must
go," etc., etc., are weak and infantile and without interest to the people who are look
ing for enterprise and progress which benefit the public; nor are they interested in the
personal wails of envious business competitors who, legging in the race, blame others
who are more progressive. We are not sorry the old store is going to put on new life,
new looks, new usefulness, and unite its future with us. A step forward is always to
be commended, and in onr great project to provide for this city and State shopping
facilities equal to the metropolis we are confident we have the good wishes of the pur
chasing public "by a large majority." Onr story has been longer than we intended.
