The particular attention of physicians, heads of families, hack owners and under takers is called to the rules and regulations of the board of health, as published in an other column, in reference to contagious diseases.

What la Said About New York's Gov rnor and the Requisition Ques tionRunaway " Snap." Criminals Have a Comments here and there upon Gov ernor Hill's action in the requisition case are as roiiows: Last night's Bridgeport Standard: "The refusal of Governor Hill of New York to recognize Governor Bulkeley of this state in tne matter of a requisition is a charac istic piece of political sharpness on the part of the New York executive. He has recognized him once, and now, at the be hest of his party, he turns about and re fuses to ao so." "remaps Governor mil thinks he is making himself solid, with the Connecticut democrats by refusing to rec ognize tne 'usurper.' " Waterbury American: "In the opinion of the lawyers and othors this is a bold po sition for Governor Hill to assume. It is held that he might at least grant the re quisition, with perhaps seme saving clause to the effect that he could not formally recognize Mr. bulkeley as governor." Springfield Republican: This is the odd est episode thus far recorded in the legis lative dispute that is still raging in the Nutmeg state. It suggests what a "snap" the runaway criminals will have during the reign of the hold-over governor if the chief magistrates of all other contiguous commonwealths follow Governor mil s ex ample. Meriden Republican: The thick and-thin sheets in this state fairly tumbled over this morning in applauding the peanut governor's action, entirely forgetting or ignoring the fact that the Connecticut demoratic oracle, the Hartford Times, stated only a week since that Morgan G. Bulkeley is the de facto governor of this state. Albany, Feb. 25. The action of Gover nor mil in refusing to recognize a requi sition from Governor Bulkeley of Con necticnt, for the return of a prisoner, is regarded by fair-minded people as an un wise proceeding. He refused without any examination oi tne cass. Hartford Post: "Governor Hill of New York has demonstrated again that "he is a democrat" by doing a very pai tisan thing m a case with which partisanship had notmng whatever to do. Hartford Times, dem: "Governor Hill's course in this case will meet with a hearty approval from a large number of Con necticut democrats. Neverthe less, Connecticut has unquestionably an acting-governor. There is constitutional authority for the continuance' of the governor and the state officials in office 'until their successors are duly quali fied.'" Springfield Union: "This action is no doubt somewhat irritating, but it will not result in serious interstate complications. In the meantime it will be nuts for Mr. Farden, the alleged burglar, who will be in no hurry to have the question of the governorship of Connecticut settled." Judge Morris of this city approves Gov ernor Hill's course, saying: "The gover nor of any state would probably hesitate to grant a requisition in the present con dition of affairs in Connecticut. Governor Hill is certainly discreet enough to act properly in the matter. He has followed the only safe course." MR. WHITNEY'S WITHDRAWAL. Hie Reasons for His Reslcnatlon from the Board of Public Works. The following letter was received bv Al derman Prince last Monday: New Haven, Conn.. Feb. 21. Alderman Prince: Dear sir Allow me to thank vou and through you the other aldermen who paid me the compliment of declining to accept my resignation of the office of commission er of the board of public works. w niie i appreciate the indorsement given me, there were to my mind serious reasons for my withdrawal from the board, and as muse reasons still prevail i feel constrained to beg that you will ask the aldermen at their next meeting to reconsider their ac tion and to elect my successor. In offering my resignation I did not act hastily, bnt decided the matter only after careful consideration, and I wish it dis tinctly understood that I was not actuated by a feeling of dislike towards any mem ber of the board, but rather by the convic tion that the policy of the present majori ty will be so detrimental to the efficient and economical administration of the de partment, and consequently adverse to the best interests of the city, that I am abso lutely determined not to be in any way re sponsible for the results which are certain to follow its adoption, and which I should be powerless to prevent. I refer, first, to the plan for dividing the permanent force, under the superintendent of street, equally between the commission ers, each commissioner to have his share of appointments; the power to discharge to be taken away from the superintendent, and to vest solely in the board, or, what is worse, within his own apportionment, each commissioner. The second, and by far the most serious change that is contemplated, is to alter the lorm of contract now in use. This form was adopted many years ago by a very competent committee, after mature delib eration, as the one best suited to insure good work. It has resulted in a high stand ard of work, particularly in sewer construc tion and has proved so satisfactory that it has been adopted by a number of other cities. It gives to the city engineer the control of the execution of important pub lic works after the contracts are made and the power to decide all minor questions that may arise while the work is in pro gress. The proposed alterations would take this control and -all authority over the contractors away from the engineer ana tuace it in the hands of the board. In other words, would substitute an irre-j sponsible committee, totally ignorant of engineering, for a thoroughly honest and competent man whose professional reputa tion depends on the quality of the work done. It is not necessary for me to explain the results that would be certain to follow this change. Any business man can see at a glance that it would lead to iobberv. extravagance and very inferior work. in closing, l desire to say that my five years' experience as a commissioner have convinced me that there is little hope of a aauHXBVHjjry utuuuvw wmiimHcnMdon OX tne department so long as it is managed by a so-called non-partisan board, the ven purpose of which is to make an equal di vision of the offices of more importance than the welfare of the city.

Tne ConKregaUonal Chnrch or Wall- lnkford Remodeled and Kniargea at a Cast or $15,000 Appropriate Dedicatory Exercises A Sermon y W AixworOBJ), Feb. 85. The dedication services in recognition of the enlargement of the Congregational church were held this evening and the increased seating capacity of the edifice was severely taxed in spite of the weather. It ia more than a year since the work of remodeling began and now that it is dene, the result is one to be croud of. An addition of 30 feet has been built on to the rear which in creases the seating capacity by about 800, making' a total of over a thousand. The organ now stands in a loft back of the pul pit with roomy quarters for the choir. The parlors and rooms for Sunday school and other purposes in the basement pre sent a charming ana nomeiixe appearance. In fact the whole appearance of the church, from top to bottom, is artistic, and an at tractive place for worship, and with few superior ia the state. About $15,000 has been expended in the work. This evening was the first time the con gregation have seen what has been done and the expressions of satisfaction were unanimous, rne exercises were or an ex tremely interesting nature. Rev. F. E, Marble delivered the invocation and Rev. David Stone read the opening selection from the . scriptures. Rev. Charles H, Trir-.lrinsrm. the castor, gave a brief histor ical outline of the 216 years of the church's history. A group of thirty-eight families, he said, first came to Wallingford from New Haven and came with the same purpose with which their brethren thirty-two years earlier came to New Haven, namely, to found a free theocracy. Here the puritan character was developed to its ideal degree. And the records of the town and church are free from many scandals which were characteristic of so manv colonies along the shores of New England. He sketched the work and career of each pastorate of the church. The sermon was delivered by Rev. Dr. A. J. F. Behrends of Brooklyn. He de livered a masterly discourse on the subject of "Christ's Atonement," ana neia nis au dience in wrapt attention. It gives me, he said, genuine and great delight to be permitted to be with you in this hour or your rejoicing. Continuing, he said the pre-eminent mes sage of Christianity to the world is not the display of a pompous ritual, for the world had that before (jurist was oorn. (juris tiahity ia not a religion of the letter, but a religion of the spirit. Nor is the pre-eminent message morality, There is a primitive gospel, and upon dis section of the gospels we find its finger marks everywhere. This message of Christianity to the world is Christ's death. Do we have an intelligent conception what relation his death has to our redemption ! lhave come to feel that there is more to be found out of Paul than all the dogmatic theologi cians together. I would refer you to the eighth chapter to the epistles of the Komans. Here Paul states the ultimate, and in view of Christ's death that the fulfillment of the law might be in us. It is the end in view which lends dignity or glory to the event. (Jhnst s death means nothing with out this end in view. Without this it means nothing when you say he died be cause he loved us. Love may be sentiment al and meaningless. Penalty does not sat isfy justice. You enact laws that they may he ooeyea, out justice is only satis fied when there is obedience. Why could not this requirement of the law be fulfilled in us without this sacrafice on Christ's part. There may be in us the wish to be holy but the achievement is in none of us. In these days one hears so much about evolu tion. It is quite interesting to see how popular old ideas with a new dress on do become. Involution is really the old doc trine of original sin. The occasion of the incarnation was the presence of sin among men. Christ came into this world naturally and into representative relations with mankind. He came in the likeness of sin ful flesh. And God condemned sin. The justice of God knows no other satisfaction than that sin has been overcome in the blessed Christ. The most marvellous thing of all is the spotless character of Jesus, and he was tempted with no abstract temptations, What a splendid victory was that gained in tne wilderness. The atonement was a personal experience in the life of Christ, and that makes it pos sible for him to be our Savior. And to be more than a mere article in our creed. Professor L. O. Brastow of the Yale the ological seminary delivered the dedicatory prayer. The musio rendered during the exercises was of an excellent quality, particularly cansws orrerooire in u minor rendered en the organ by Mrs. Thomas Peers and a solo sung oy miss M. .U.Brown. The noral dec oratians about the pulpit and choir loft were profuse and artistically arranged. $6,000 for Foxivood. Danbury, Feb. 25. Foxwood, one of the star stallions of the Ridgewood farm stables, was sold yesterday afternoon to Dr. Walker of Palmer, Mass., for $6,000. The horse, a six-year-old, has a record of 2:30. OVER THE BORDER. Governor Hill Can Get Thla Criminal From Governor Russell. Putnam, Feb. 25. Officer Roberts of In spector Byrnes' staff arrested at Ironstone, Mass., to-day William Lloyd,who is alleged to be wanted in New York for the murder of a companion in a saloon last month. Who la Responsible 1 To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: Why is one of our city's most urgent needs apparently ignored and neglected by our authorities? The want of a kind and judicious matron at our police station has long been recognized as a most pressing necessity by all who have thoughtfully considered the subject, and after very earnest effort to secure the appointment of such a person, an appropriation was made for the purpose and a matron select ed. But instead of having her established at the station house and constantly leadv for duty, it was considered sufficient to summon ner (two or three times only) for the searching of women arrested for theft. and the poor unfortunates who have been seized by the stern arm of the law, some needlessly, some through the sins of others, many for the first time and while still quite young, have been left wholly without a woman's care or protection, often exposed to the most degrading and hardening influences which quench the last spark of hope and destroy all self respect. Who is responsible for this state of things? We naturally answer "the author ities who failed to carry out the designs of those who had secured the matron's ap pointment," but is not a grave responsi bility resting upon every one of us if we see a greivous wrong being done and pos sively submit! Will not every thoughtful person seriously consider whether there is an individual effort for which he is respon sible in order to secure the speedy accom plishment of this most pressing reform? A. G. Edwards. SPRING NOVELTIES. Opening of New Seasonable Brei Goods at BIean & Carpenter's. A host of new spring dress goods adorns the popular store of Monson & Carpenter, and causes already a daily invasion of the store by the ladies, that speaks volumes for the firm's fame, as successful caterers in firBt-class dress goods. The firm has always ranked A, No. 1 for reliabloiiand choice merchandize, and for its strong hold upon its patrons' confidence and fa vor. Appreciating this they are making preparations for better facilities in the way of greatly increased space, and a much more modern store upon the present site, which will allow them to display their beautiful goods at a much better advan tage. .The dress goods and silks displayed by this firm at the time areunequaled between New York and Boston for variety, style and beauty. Their cloak room is al ways an attractive place, and this season's selections will be up to the mark. Black dress goods is another stronghold of this concern; agencies being placed with them for the best makes of Henriettas, crepes, veilings, etc. The dreBB trimmings the present season have a profusion of jewels and precious stones. There is always a good assortment of materials for evening wear in Monson & Carpenter's stock. The "Chiffon's" ate the leaders just now. They are showing some very nobby effects in lin en damask, with napkins to match, con ventional pattern and stripe effects. Every department will be found well stocked.

The House Appoints Its Committees and Gets Ready for Business The Senate, However, Declare Them selves as Not Ready to Proceed to Other Business Until the Question of State Officers is Settled. Hartford, Feb. 25 special At the oapitol to-day the . house appointed its various committees and got ready for bus iness, while the senate took up the time in useless discussion over the same old ques tion of state officers. The Senate. Speaker Read called the senate to order at 1 tj. m., and after prayer by the chap lain, Senator Clark, rep.r of the Twenty- first, arose and said I believe several bills concerning appropriations have been sent here from the house and I move that they be taken from the table, read by their titles and referred to the committee on appropriations. Senator Mead, rep., seconded the motion, Senator Pierce, dem., of the Fourth, said that no committee on appropriations had been appointed to which they could be referred. Senator Clark Such a committee has been appointed in the house, and from several things I have heard here in the past few days I was led to think that the chairman of these committees had already been selected. I have these bills, some of which I understand are very important, especially the school appropriations which should be made bef oreMarch 1, should beat once referred to the proper committee, Senator Pierce, dem. Before the senator from the Twenty-first had tne noor intended to make a motion that we take recess until 2 o'clock.and I make it now. At this juncture of the proceedings the doorkeeper introduced Mr. Urainard, sec retary of Morgan G. Bulkeley, who said that he brought a communication from his excellency Governor Bulkeley and that he did not come as Mr. Brainard, but as sec retary of Governor Bulkeley. He then laid the communication on the clerk's desk. NOMINATION OP STATE OFFICERS BY THE GOVERNOR. Senator Pierce, dem., said after Mr, Brainard had retired: In conformity with previous action it is under stood that this is not received by the clerk. The communication was that recommending the appointment of Charles A. Elliott of Clinton as state's prison director, William O. Seymour of Bridgeport to be railroad commissioner. and Edwin Hoy t of New Canaan as a mem ber of the board ot control of the agricul tural station. WAS TIRED OK FOOLING TIME AWAY. Senator Pierce again moved to take recess but afterwards withdrew it at the desire of Senator Clark, who objected to a recess, saying: That he came to Hartford to do business and wanted to do it and satisfy his constituents, and n et fool away his time in taking a recess every few minutes. After further discussion by Senators Seymour, dem., Shumway, rep., Mead, rep., Senator Thayer, dem., of the Tenth moved that Senator Clark's motion be amended by striking out the portion re lating to the referring of the matter to the committee on appropriations. HAULED OVER THE COALS. Here again Senator Mead, rep., of the Twelfth, hauled the democrats over the coals for treating the house as they had done in refusing to take up these bills and pass them, and thus make due provision tor the various state institutions. SENATOR CLEVELAND SPEAKS HIS MIND, Senator Cleveland, dem., of the First, followed with a fifteen minute argument in which he, as usual, ably defended the constitution as construed by the senate, and said that he should not favor the doing of any pnbho business until the state officers had been declared elected. Senator Clark This matter has taken somewhat of a broad scope and has gone once more into the question concerning tne election or state omcers. xou go into any little town and if 100 votes are cast it takes fifty-one, a majority over all, and that is our constitution; it takes a maiori ty over all to elect, and no one has received such a majority, and I don't think any state omcers were elected. AGAIN TEE SAKE OLD DEBATE. Senator Thayer I rise to a point of order. Senator Clark I think -I know what the question is and I am only replying to the points taken by the majority on the question ox state omcers. Senator Holden, dem. I must object to this motion, as there are no committees to lefer these bills to and such a motion would be of no use. Senator Mead, rep., thought the minor ity had a right to know what business there was before the senate, while Senator uarvan, rep., thought they might be re ferred to a committee to be raised. senator oeymour, aem. i must say that to-day I most heartily endorse the statements of the senator from the First. It has been stated to-day that the senate has not done anything since the first day or tne session, t his is not so. as the rec ords will show. On the first day we did our duty in swearing in tne democratic state officers, and to-day our duty is to stand firm, as we have done so far, and seat those omcers. 1 hone that this mo tion will not prevail and that no business will De taken up at present until the ques tion of state officers has been settled. IT MUST BE MORRIS OB MERWIN SAID BE. Senator Holden, dem. The people in this state want either Governor Morris or General Merwin for governor, but none want Mr. Bulkeley, who they did not vote for as ocoupying that high position. We represent 35,000 more people than the minority, and this majority we should lookout for, and for their interests in this matter. Onr action on the first day was not questioned by the minority, and if the they keep out of office one of two men to whom it rightfully belongs, and keeping in tnat omce a man who has no right there. The secret ballot system under which this election was made, was a repub lican act. I want this matter settled, whether the senate is wrong or not. IT SHOULD GO TO THE SUPREME COURT, SAID HE. Senator Seymour, rep. I don't know to what the senator of the committee refers I was a member of the committee on canj vass of votes in this senate, and I offered a minority report. The majority, how ever, were under any circumstance bound to declare the democratic state officers elected. Every democrat was here with his prejudged opinion on which argument would have been of no avail. I would willingly give my time to argue this, a legal and constitutional question, before any unprejudiced body, but this body be ing prejudice should not judge. The mat ter should be referred to the supreme court for a decision. SENATOR FOX OF NEW HAVEN PUTS HIS FOOT DOWN. Senator Fox, dem. As long as I sit in this senate I shall not do one bit of joint business until this question is settled. Governor Hill of New York has the same as said that Morgan G. Bulkeley is a usorfer, and that Governor Morris is the only governor of this state. A PERTINENT INQUERY. Senator Mead, rep. How are we to ever settle this question, if the majority refuse to do anything? On the table now lay several resolutions from the house regarding set tlements whioh they refuse to act on, so what is the use in us staying here at a great expense to the state? HOW? Senator Seymour, dem. The senator from the Eighth says this matter must be settled before any business is done, but he fails to state how ths majority wants it settled. If they desire that Jndge Morris and all the state officers be declared elect ed by the house, then this is my last day in the senate, and we might as well ad journ, as such a settlement will never pre vail. MORE DISCUSSION. Senator Cleveland, dem. I will say for myself at least that I will never vote to do any business until the house adopt the resolution of the senate passed on the first day, declaring Governor Morris and the other state officers elected. Senator Clark I would sav that when I made my motion I thought it a very sim ple matter and did not think that ths dis cussion would take such a broad turn. I will sav, however, that I never said any thing regarding Governor Hill, and the sen ator from the Eighth must be mistaken. Senator yiark mtrjm m tottitaprop. 1 osition made bv the house to the senate, proposing that the matter be referred to four judges of the supreme conn,ana Kill ed: I believe this was a fair proposition, and it was not-accepted by the opposition, who want all or nothing. Senator Pierce I move we now aajourn until to-morrow at 1 o'clock, whioh motion was carried, this adjournment evidently being on the advice of Attorney Ham- mersiy who whispered into Senator Pierce's ear just at this time. The House, This body met at 11 o'clock, and after a few minor petetions had been received and it was voted to fix March 19 as the latest day for receiving new business Speaker Paige announced the following committee JOINT BT AND ING COKKITTBSS.

At the first annual meeting and banquet of the Connecticut Life Underwriter's as sociation, held in Hartford this week, A. T. Bichards of Hartford was elected presi dent, H. A. Tyler, Hartford, first vice president, and L. W. Moody, New Haven, second vice president. Mr. Moody was chosen one of the delegates to the national convention. A fine dinner was served. During the festivities Colt's band played, One of the jolliest of speeches was made by Bev J. H. Twitchell, who is one of the most felicitous after-dinner speakers Con necticut has got. Incidentally he touched upon the silver question and remarked that Bob lngersoll was not so much to be feared as the dollar that was worth less than 100 cents. Colo nel Jacob L. Greene, president of the Con necticut mutual Late insurance company, read a very able paper on life insurance, He was followed by Charles H. Clark, who responded for "the press" in a pleasant vein.

'g Spring Dress Novelties In Rich Profusion. It was another red letter day at Neely & Co.'s yesterday and gnat interest pre vailed among the ladies. What was it all about? Why, it was the inauguration of a new departure, viz: a special exhibition of new goods, the said new goods being dis played, each pattern separately on view and to the best advantage. This was, as stated in the neat circular, the "First view of early arrivals in spring dress novelties; no purchases delivered until close of exhi bition." The new customer received a royal welcome. The display was np stairs and the central portion of the upper floor was devoted to it. All day new arrivals of ladies were viewing the display. It was a beautiful one and a charming scene it was throughout. The display is worthy of the fame of this famous house and deserves unqualified praise. Every dress pattern can be accurately judged as to its style, quality, effect, etc. Chairs are placed about for sitters, who desire to gaze or rest a few moments. The admira ble effect of the whole display can be best appreciated only by a personal view. It is a credit to the taste and judgment of the house in selections, and Mr. Duncan, the head of the department, deserves en- logy for his work in so finely arranging the fabrics. Beside the big array of choice f abricB. every one of which is a gem in its line, there are high cost goods, exceeding ly elegant in abundance, suoh as carved velvet dresses, rich Turk satin ground, sprinkled with ar bas relief of natural sprays of velvet rosebuds, truly a value, fit for the dress of a queen. The display of goods is sat off also by fine decorations of flowers and tropical plants. The exhibition continues to-day too. ' i FIBE IN DANBUKT.
