THEBCSH FOB BOOKS,
The New Free Public Library Build-
Inn; Besle-redby Hundreds of Tonne
People The Improvements Over the
Old Building The Reading Booms
Filled With Benders. .
Since the new free public library build
ing was opened it has been besieged from
morning till far into the evening with
book fanciers, mostly young people, The
librarians and assistants have been kept
busy during every minute of the time dur
ing which the building has been open,
The rush for books upon the first few days
was enormous; and the number of books
given out each day since the new building
was opened has been almost as large as the
lareest number given out upon any day
of the preceding year. Last Saturday
1U books were given out, and upon the
Saturday after the blizzard about 1,000
dooks were taKen Dy inose wno neia ciroa-

what now and the librarians consider that
the circulation has nearly settled down to
its usual figure The cause for this great
increase in the circulation during the past
few days was, of course, the closing of the
library entirely during the period of its re
moval irom toe out to tne new Duuaing.
This occupied only a few days, but the in
crease which followed the reopening of
the library was a remarkably good test of
the popularity which the library has gained
among all classes, of citizens and of the
great interest which is taken m it.
The new building seems to please the
patrons of the library in every respect.The
manner of obtaining 'books is simplified
and rendered much more easy. The three
entrances to the building in place ot tne
one in the old building renders crowding
at all times out of the question, and the
spacious hall within and the absence of a
long flight of steps to climb, are the most
pleasing features to the ladies who come

The day upon which the most books are
taken from the library is Saturday. Upon
this day the school children, who are
among the most constant book takers,
flock by the hundreds and Librarian Stet
son and his assistants are kept very busy
by the little ones. Most of them know
just how to obtain their books and just
what books they want and they do not
need scarcely more attention than tne
older book takers. After school hours in
the- afternoon and in the early morning is
aJ8 W time at the prary with the
children. Most of them take light
stones of notion by the popular
of -juvenile stories and this
the library's circulation is a
During the afternoon and evening is also
a time when the young ladies come to the
library in large numbers. They are among
the steady patrons of the library and se
lect their books with a great deal ot delib
eration and jare. They fancy, as a rule,
the current novels, and rarely take a book
twice, as is often the case with the chil
dren. Standard works of fiction by the
popular novel writers 'are among the books
which it is always hard to find in the li
brary, and they never have an opportunity
to get dusty upon the shelves. In fact,
adult fiction leads the entire class of circu
lation. The librarian's report for 1890
showed that 69,722 volumes of this charac
ter were taken during the year, while of
juvenile fiction there were 29,116, of gen
eral works and literature 4,880,
of history 4,115, of biography
2,100, of travels 3,606, of useful
arts l.ooa, ot natural sciences l.oiz, or re
ligion 809, of philosophy 623, of sociology
7Bo and of philology 187. The total circu
lation for last year was 120,845 volumes.
This total was 4,482 less than the year be
fore, but for 1891 the indications are that
the circulation will far exceed this num
The time of the year has another bear
ing upon the circulation. During the win
ter and early spring months people stay at
home during the long and cold evenings
and do more reading. The circulation for
each of the six months from November to
April averages from 2,000 to 4,000 above
that for the months of the other half of
The number of volumes in circulation is
comparatively small. It does not reach
lo,0U0, hardly more than the number ot
books issued during the busy months.
The works of juvenile fiiction are taken
out, upon the average, about thirty times
each during the year while the works of
adult fiction are issued not over twenty
two times each. The others range, upon
the average from one to five times each.
The school teachers are a most interest
ing class or book arawers. They display
tastes ot all vanties out most ot them
take at least one or two solid substanial
volumes upon scientific or educa
tional subjects. A large number
have availed themselves of the privilege of
taking out cards entitling them to five
books at the same time for school use. It
seems to be the general opinion among
libraries that the public benefit of such
privileges is amply sufficient to justify the
granting ot tms privilege, xn some HDra
ries the number of books allowed each
is ten or even fifteen. In addition to this
some libraries have purchased several hun
dreds of duplicates and place them in the
schools themselves. The valuable results
which follow amply compensate for the
outlay. lint there is no immediate pros
pect that this course will be practicable
for this library, nor that the number of
books allowed can be soon increased.
The books added within the past few
months have been the principal new books
of general interest besides standaid works
and some important sets. Among the
more noticeable may be mentioned the fol
lowing: Johnson's Cyclopaedia In eight
volumes; Cambridge Bible for schools, over
ao volumes; JLiitteu's ljivme Age, x ia vol
umes: Atlantic Monthly, 35 volumes to
complete the set; a considerable portion of
Bonn's Libraries, Deutscher Novellen-
Schatz, 43 volumes: Scientific American,
nearly complete set: McClintock &
Strong's Cyclopaedia of .Biblical Lit
erature, 12 volumes; Benton's Debates
of Congress, 16 volumes; Knight's
English Cyclopaedia, 23 volumes; Supple
ment to Encyclopaedia Britannica, 4 vol
umes; Quarterly Review, 143 volumes;
Jones' Grammar of Ornament; Franklin's
Works, 10 volumes; 18 years' numbers of
the Kevue des deux Mondes; V volumes oi
Library Journal, completing the set. A
large proportion of the books purchased
only ruled the place ot others worn out.
About one-hub ot the number has to be
deducted to give the number of real ad
ditions; that is about 1,800 new books ad
ded by purchase. The cause of so many
books being worn out is readily seen in the
number ot tunes that the notion is issued.
Another notable fact is that the number
of persons holding circulation cards is
about the same as the total number of
books The average number of books tak
en by each borrower during a year is from
twenty to thirty. Librarian Stetson con
siders that the new quarters will greatly
increase the public interest in the library
and elevate its tone as well as the mental
life of the book takers. As they
read they call for a higher grade
of books and perhaps a wider
range in character of books. "It is
expected," he says, "that more and more
costly and many rare books will be called
for. - Therefore any great addition to the
book funds would not increase so much
the number of books bought as add more
valuable and useful books. . The average
cost per volume may reasonably be doubled
witnin a tew years, judging from the
ports of other libraries as well as the theo
retical aspects ot the case. , The present
amount available for books will therefore
not seem any less required on account of
the growth in the number of volumes, but
will probably seem even more inadequate.
Indeed it will be some, time before,
considering only the number of the books
alone, popular demands can be met as is
desirable. Oar library is still one of the
smallest In comparison to the size of the
citv in this country or elsewhere,
seems proper that the need of greater re
sources should be kept prominently in
view. While the library is doing a great
work, it oucht to do much more: ana to
this end (I trust I may be perdoned for ex
pressing the opinion that) a city appro
priation not less than Springfield and
Lowell have made for years would
none too great. ' -
The library building, interior as well
exterior, has been examined and criticised
by hundreds of prominent citizens and
others who are Interested in the library.
J.ne exterior stui Dears a stmong resem

However, mere is litue to remind one

to overawe, even a little bit, the ught-

look bud they rfll bo wed for book storage
when needed. The galleries rest on iron
beams. t Under the galleries, separated
from the nave by partitions, partly wood
and partly glass, on the north side is the
reading room for periodicals and reference
books: on the south side, the reading room
for newspapers. The middle portion of I
the building is for books.- The front part
is the delivery department, where the pub
lie receive and . return books . and
consult catalogues. In the . space
behind the delivery desk are the
bookcases. - As the library grows the rear
rooms on the first and second floors can be
utilized for book storage. - The capacity
for this purpose may be stated in round
figures as 4,800 square feet, capable of
holding 100,000 volumes. As it will be
years before the upper - rear room will be
required for books, it has been planned to
fit it ud as a lecture room. The room for
merly used as a pastors' study, in the
southeast corner, has been devoted to the
purposes of a directors' room, suiting the
purpose admirably. Hard wood floors are
laid throughout the entire building except
in the front vestibules, which are tuea.

Hartford, Jan. 8. Special. To-day
the usual crowd of lawyers, would-be
officeholders and curiosity seekers gave
their undivided . attention to the house,
in which body it was expected all the
important business relative to the gover
norship would be transacted. Early this
morning the fair count returns of elec
tions and the canvass of votes forming a
big lot of papers and books were given to
the house when the latter body was called
to order by Speaker Paige at 10:15 o'clock,
Representative Walker of Hartford was
on the floor the first thing with the reso
lution to grant Jacob'F. Graham of Nau-
gatuck a seat in the house on the ground
that the town has over 5,000 inhabitants.
This resolution was referred to the com
mittee on contested elections with the
documents from the census bureau setting
forth the official count of the population
The chair then announced the commit
tee on house rules, consisting of Messrs,
Comstock of Nor walk, Green of Norwich
and Healy of Windsor.
Before the speaker had time to utter a
few words to Judge Harrison Mr. Walker
once more had the floor on a question of
privilege, asking that the chair enforce the
house rule prohibiting strangers taking the
seats of members on the floor. This rule
was a blow aimed at the gentlement occu
pying seats with the members for the pur
pose of coaching them, and caused con
siderable discussion, in which Representa
tives Green of Norwich.Saxe of Waterbury
and Healy of Windsor Locks took part,
The speaker finally declared that it was an
unwritten law of the house to allow the
friend of a member to occupy a seat at his
side, and here the question was dropped,
A resolution ottered by Mr. dudson ot
Stratford was passed authorizing the com
mittee on contested elections to sit during
recesses and summon papers and persons.
The resolutions from the senate declar
ing all the democratic state officers elected
to their various positions was next read.
Mr. Ureen-ot .Norwich arose and oirered
resolution which set forth the action of
the house regarding returns and canvass
of votes.and likewise the action of the sen
ate, and provided for the appointment of
select house committee ot eignt.to be ap
pointed by the chair. This committee is
to have power to examine into the returns
of the late election, to summon persons
and papers necessary to an extrinsic and
explanatory examination, and to sit dur
ing recesses for the prosecution of the
Mr. Boot of Waterbury made a strong
argument against the adoption of the reso
lution and amended it so that the scope of
the latter should not extend to the election
or office of comptroller.
MfNudson of Hartford opposed this
amendment as did Mr. Hotchkiss of New
Haven and Porter of Pomf ret.
On motion of Mr. Greene the original
resolution was put and carried by an aye
and nay vote, with tne following result:
Whole number cast, 249; necessary for
choice, 125; aye, 132; nay, 117. This was
after the amendment was voted on and
Mr. Healy of Windsor Locks submitted
second amendment which set forth that
whereas John J. Phelan was elected
secretary of state, as appeared
by the returns, that tne resolu
tion should not be included in
the former resolution. Mr. Markley of
New Britain held that the house committee
had no power to issue summons with con
currence on the part of the senate. Mr.
Markley was followed by Kepresentatives
Saxe of Waterbury and Callahan of New
Haven, who fully set forth the law on the
subject as they unerstood it, and held that
no committee could go behind the returns
made by the moderators, both gentlemen
favoring the amendment. Alter tnrtner
discussion by Messrs. Judson of Stratford
and judd ot juitcnneia, tne amendment
was lost by an aye and nay vote, resulting
in the casting of 240 votes, 132 yeas and 108
Mr. xuttle then introduced a number or
petitions and affidavits relating to the
November elections wnien were rererrea
to the house committee on the canvass of
votes. He also moved a recess until
January 20 at 10 o'clock and this was car
ried. The house committee to examine
returns had been appointed, consisting of
Greene, republican, Norwich; Hotchkiss,
democrat, JNew uaven; J nelson, republi

A letter from General Graham was also
received, which set forth his discharge in
March, 1890, by the governor and in con
clusion said:. "I had no opportunity to
be heard before a military tribunal upon
any charges and no cause is assigned in
the order discharging me from the service
of the state. I would respectfully request
that you inquire into the matter before
taking any action with reference thereto.

A recess was then taken from 11:30 to

to order Governor Bulkeley sent in another
resolution appointing Thomas S. Brown

into the senate chamber, as the house had
taken a recess until January 20 and they
were anxious to see what action the senate
would take in the matter but it was 3
o'olock before the speaker called the sen
ate to order once more.
Senator Pierce of the Fourth moved that
the senate take a recess for half an hour,
ana n was so voted.
At 8:20 the senate was , called to order
onee more. .
' Senator Pierce of the ' Fourth said the
senate is likely to have business of impor
tance before it soon, and I move we take a
recess until 4 o'clock. Promptly at 4
o'clock Senators Pierce, Fox, Seymour,
Holden and Cleveland, who had been in
the ante-room, aai the speaker
called tne senate once more to order.
A BBNBATION AND A DISAPPOINTMENT.
It was now thought that something very
Important would occur as the rumor was
that the demooiaQo state officers, who were
at the residence of Attorney Hammersly,
would appear before the senate and take
the oath of office, after which they would
make a formal demand for their
respective offices, and . if ' refus
ed, - would then ;. bring an action
of quo warranto to obtain possession of
them. That there was any foundation iox
these rumor the leading democratic sena
tors denied, and when Senator Pierce of
the Fourth moved to adjourn until Tues
day at 1:30 p. m. the motion was carried
ana the senate declared adjourned, muoq

The board ot trade of .Norwich the other

house upon the green at Norwich Town on
the ground that the building should be
preserved and cared for as a rare feature
of historic interest and as a credit and
honor to that town. Jonathan Trumbull,
in advocating its preservation, said that
the building had a history and should be
preserved, for it bears the same relation to
Norwich that Faneuil and Independence
halls do to Boston and Philadelphia. It is
proposed to start a popular subscription
to which every man, woman and child
may contribute and thus own a share in
the historic relic, which can be fitted up
with a- hall, committee and reception rooms.

CONDEMNED AS UNSAFE.
A Two Story Brick Tenement on Mea
dow Street to be Torn Down.
The large two-story brick tenement
house, which formerly stood at 204 Mea
dow street and was removed seventy-five
feet to the rear in order to make room for
the newirailding of Price, Lee & company,
has been declared unsafe by the fire
marshal and will be immediately torn
down. The walls of the structure were
ascertained to be eight inches out of plumb
and Mr. Charles H. Webb, who is the
agent of the owner, Mrs. Elizabeth S.
Peck, was consequently notified to tear
down the building so as to remove the
danger of its falling, or to cut oS a section
of the building about two feet in width to
see whether the rest of the building would
settle. The chance of effecting a remedy
by the latter method seemed so remote
that the owner of the house decided to
tear down the two upper stories of the
building, leaving the bakery, in the base
ment untouched, and rooms for storage
about six feet high on the floor over the
; The bakery is occupied by John S. Gil
bert, the tenement on the first floor by
John Malone and the second floor by
Charles Anderson and family. The Ma

If still living, Miss Nancy Taylor of
Grant township, Taylor county, la., is
possessed of one of the most remarkable
pair of eyes ever heard of this aide of the

ever since she was a small child, and to
the people of that portion of Taylor coun

but her fame on account of the freakish
characteristics of her eyes did not spread
beyond the limits of the state until about
1877, when Miss Nancy had reached the
mature age of ten years.
