Warranto Proceedings The State's
Finances No Cause for Alarm Over
Appropriations Talk on the Sub
ject. , The Connecticut muddle took on a new
aspect yesterday. Great public interest
centers npon the question what will Judge
Morris do now, the republican house hav
ing executed its master stroke of policy by
adjourning, tiius leaving Governor Bulke-
ley in the chair of state and the democrats
in a quandary, and everybody wondering
what's coming next in Connecticut's re
markable series of state tableaux. Demo
crats and republicans all over the state are
looking to Judge Morris and, Micawber
like, are waitina for something new to
turn up. Mr. Morris solved the conun
drum yesterday. To reporters who inter
view him and who enquired of him if he
proposed soon to begin quo warranto pro
ceedings on xne guuernaiuritu uoiuuu,
Mr. Morris replied in the affirmative.
Fnrther than that he would not state, and
in vain were all efforts to sound the
learned iudee further on this in
teresting subject. From eminent demo
cratic authorities yesterday the information
gleaned tbat Mr. Morns contemplates pre
senting in abont two weeks hiB casein
court. The quo warranto proceedings will
be, of course, directed against Governor
Bulkeley to compel mm to snow Dy wnai
rieht he holds office as governor of onr
little commonwealth. This it will be easy
for Governor Bulkeley to show, under the
constitution, that precious document giv
ing him the office until some one else be
comes leeallv his successor, but it is ex
pected, of course, that the quo warranto
proceedings will go further and probe
deener into the case. Whether tne en
quiry will go behind the returns remains
to do seen.
In all probability ex-Governor Inzer
soil and Judge Henry Stoddard will be
the counsel for Mr. Morris. Whether the
other democratic state officials, Messrs.
Alsop, Sanger and Phelan will join with
Mr. Morris in the court proceedings is
not known at present. They very likely

must necessarily be the foundation of

grounds for hope or shatter all ne has.

Neither point H well taken, since, in the first
place, the lum-uhas passed the usual appropria

does not pas? them in concurrence. In the sec
ond place, serious trouble is going to happen
even if the R';utre refuses to concur, so long as
Morgan G. butkcley is at the headof affairs in
Said a gentleman this morning who knows the
governor vei-y well and who has closely studied
the situation: -The senate will surely not care to
take the adkrchial step of refusing to pass any
appropriation bills whatever when the statutes so
clearly promise that It is their duty to do so. It
would be a responsibility that they would hardly
dare to shoulder. But if the senate should ad-
in going ahead in co-operation with the treasurer
ana comptroller and paying every liability of the
state that is authorized by law. Even if the
comptroller held aloof the governor and treasu
rer could, under the circumstances, go ahead by
themselves and arrange matters. But depend
upon it," he added, with an air of conviction,
"the senate will pass these bills in concur
rence." Nobody can say that the house has not done
its duty in regard to the appropriation bills. It
has passed a resolution accepting the direct tax
and another accepting the agriculture endow
ment act beside the usual appropriation bills and
the act authorizing the comptroller and treasurer
to settle all legal liabilities the amount of which
are fixed by statute. The appropriations are
substantially the same as those passed two
years ago, with some reductions. Wherever
there was a deficiency enough was added to
make the amount good and wherever a surplus
in the estimates was found the amount was re
duced by so much.
It takes about a million dollars a year, outside
of the schools and the interest on the public
debt, to run the state, or an average of $85,000 a
month. The school moneys, amounting to some
$400,000, have just been paid, except the $10,000
deficiency. The interest on the debt of the state
amounts to $115,000 annually, and this sum the
treasurer is authorized to pay without any espe
cial appropriation having to be made. Then it
should also be remembered that the various
boards concerned are empowered to borrow
money for this running of the schools and the
care of paupers.
Another fact that should be borne in mind is
that on account of the adjournment of the house
with the resulting absence of legislation, no ex
traordinary appropriations, such as additions to
normal schools, prisons, hospitals, etc., or public
monuments or enterprises of various sorts, will
have to be made. The money is coming right
along into the treasurer's office so there will be
no lack of funds if only a key may be found with
which to unlock the vaults.
The insane hospital has some money of its
own; but the soldiers home, the normal schools,
hospitals, agricultural schools will all need
money shortly as well as the courts, pnsons,and,
in short, all of the iudiciarv departments.
It is hoped and expected that the senate will
do its duty in the premises; but if it happens
otherwise, then the citizens of the state will look
to Governor Bulkeley and his associates in office
to save tne credit oi uonnecucut.

score will show, but, notwithstanding this
fact and the extremely cold weather, the
game was a fairly interesting one. The
Dartmouth team showed up in excellent
form and ontbatted and outfielded the
home team, but was less fortunate in
bunching their hits. The features of the
game were the playing of Homer, Wilson

GRAND OPERA HOUSE.
The new comic opera "Influence,
True Love Never Rnns Smooth," composed
by J. Franklin Warner, esq., was pre
sented at this house last evening for the
first time on any stage before an audienc
which completely filled the spacious audi
torium. Among the audience were many
managers and theatrical critics from Bos
ton, New York, Philadelphia and other
cities, all of whom were unanimous in
their praise of the merits of this, the latest
of all spirants in the operatic line, for pub-
lio favor. The scene of the opera, which
is in three acts and thoroughly Ameri
can, is laid in New York, Washington
and the Arctic seas. The story of the
opera is new and is exceedingly well
worked up, and contains many situations
that are humorous and ludicrous in the
extreme. The music is more than usually
sparkling and bright, while the songs are
lively and last evening were unusually well
rendered, particularly was this the case
in the second act, when the solo of Miss
Beatrice Goldie was rendered with an
ability which fully merited the applause
with which it was received. The opera
contains many bon mots. Among the
specially good things which may be noted
were the work of the policemen in the
first act and the introduction of snch
familiar characters as the impersonations
of President Harrison, secretary Blaine,
Jerry Simpson and others in subsequent
acts. Of the work of the company naught
but praise can be said, when it is borne in
mind thtt last night was their first ap
pearance in this opera, rue principals ac
quitted themselves admirably, and their
efforts were duly recognized and appre
ciated. Of the principals, Miss Goldie,
Miss Carrie Tutein, the soubrette, Mr,
Will Henshaw and Mr. Thomas C. Peasley
won instant recognition in consequence of
tneir good wore, ana tne auet rendered
by Miss Goldie and Mr. Peasley was hon
orea witn an encore.
That there are several places in the opera
which will require caref ui pruning was
evidenced by the presentation last evening
and these will be attended to at once. On
the whole, however, the production can be
set down as a wonderful success for an
American opera by an American author,
The scenic effects are unusually grand
and have been specially prepared for this
production by John A. Thompson of the
Hollis street theater, Boston. The most
effective of all the scenes is that used in
the third act, which represents a ship
frozen m among the icebergs and
surrounded with Esquimaux, after which
follows the breaking np of winter and the
disappearance of tbe icebergs. This same
scene will be on exhibition at the opera
houBe free of charge this afternoon be
tween the hours of 2 and 4. "Influence"
will be presented this and to-morrow even
ings and to-morrow afternoon, after which
the company goes to Pittsburg for a week,
and thence to the South Broad street thea
ter, Philadelphia, for a long run,
"Lights and Shadows," the best of
Charles Gailer's dramas, will hold the
boards the first half of next week.
The long anticipated presentation of
"Antigone" takes place this evening. It
is earnestly desired by the management
tnat tne audience wear lull evening dress,
and in response to this many ladies have
signified their intention to dispense with
bonnets. The rehearsal last evening was
in every way satisfactory, and was attend
ed by a few friends of the performers and
by representatives of leading New
York newspapers. The stage pic
ture is a very orilliant one
and it is evident that the promoters of the
entertainment have done everything in
their power to make it a success. The
costumes are not only elegant, but are
most tasteful, and this is due in a great
measure m we eiaoorate s tenoning by Mr.
Charles Schenck of this city and to Miss
Lewis, daughter of ex-Mayor Lewis, to
whom is due the harmonious blending of
colors. This assistance was generously of-
rerea ana mgniy appreciated. it will be
strange indeed if New Haven's first at

Dr. Stalker's First Lecture In Mar-
uand Chapel Audience Crowded
Words introductory to the Course.
Rev. Dr. James Stalker delivered yester
day the first of his lectures in the Lyman
Beecher course to the divinity students in
Marquand chapel. He is from Glasgow,
Scotland. It is the first time he has been
American soil, and, as he stated, he
has a warm admiration for many things
American. The chapel was packed to the
doors, and many were unable to get in and
had to turn away, Here are a few of the
things which he said: "The idea of col
lege life is that you are here gaining the
theories which you will afterward put into
practice. The faculties on which suc
cess depends aTe very different in
the world from what they are here
in college. The creative intellect is
for the college, but for life you need the
prastising intellect. Of my classmates I
might mention two who distinguished
themselves one (Professor urummona; in
the imagination, but the other possessed
the power to sway the minds of men. Now
studsnts are criticising men. They criti
cise everybody. What a lot is said of the
professors behind their backs! I fancy if
man v oi tnem Knew ie luey wuuiu ue m i aiu
to retain their positions. And it is the
... . ji. . i 11 1 r !J
same with clergvmen -and other prominent
men. But the moment you leave tms nan
for the business of life you will pass from
being the criticising to the criticised, and
will have other eves turned on you. A
man is not long in public life before all
sorts of faults can be found4a him. But
do not think I have come here to dissuade
you from criticism. Men ' successors
have an undoubted right to criticise them,
and the succeeding generation its predeces
"The population has been increasing
fast. There is now a Protestant church for
every two thousand population in Glas
gow. But has the amount of practical
Christianity increased in tbe same propor
tion? There Is but one man in the church
for every thousand. That is not Christ
ianity that can be satisfied till the whole
lump is leavened. Vice flourishes side by
side with Christianity. In what direction
can we look for hope? Only in the direc
tion of those entering the ministry. It
requires men willing to sacrifice and to
consecrate themselves. We cannot
do better than follow the examples
ot Uhrist and his apostles.
Apostolic spirit is embodies mostly in St.
Paul's, and that, too, not only in his life
but in his writings. It is not the character
or life of St. Paul that I wish to paint
you may find that in multitudes of books
but his spirit. The faculty hinted to me
before I stepped on to this platform that
I might do well to present the subject
from a tresh point of view." Greater
laughter. "The value of these lectures
lies in what are called confession, that is,
records of experience. I will finish this
miscellaneous introductory lecture by
this point. I believe in preaching
and that it is very far behind what it
might do and ought to do. I believe in it
because it has the stamp of Christ. Paul
said 'Christ sent me not to baptize, but to
preach the gospel.' Of course I recom
mend visitation of the sick, taking part in
oenencent schemes, and so on but preach
ing is the central thing. People say. in
deed, 'Would it not be better to teach peo
ple to come to church to speak to God
and not to hear a man?' Bnt it is not
hear a man, but the voice of God.lt is good
to speak to God, but you should
also let God speak to you. Preaching
often disparaged, because, they say the
printing press has superseded the
preacher. One time it did good, when
books were only for the learned. But
when two or three are met together
God's name, they cannot but mutually
express their thoughts. It is a thing
whose place no books can ever take,
What, too, does the press amount to for
the multitude? The world has become
far larger and more interesting one for
the common man, and this makeB it far
more necessary for him to know the prin
ciples of sight."
The subject will be continued this after
noon at 6 o clock.
Dr. Smith Recovered.
Dr. M. Smith of Pearl street, who has
been confined to his house during the last
two weeks with the grip, is now able to
be out again and attend to his patients.
In the Tunnel.
The New York board of railroad com
missioners has withdrawn its restriction as
to speed of trains in favorable weather in
the Fourth avenue tunnel, New York city,
upon the condition that the railroad com
pany station a man at each home signal
with a torpedo to put on the track when
the signal is set at danger, and with in
strnction to go back to warn following
trains should a train become stalled near
the home signal, and upon the further con
dition that duplicate low signals be con
struct-d between the tracks so that both
the engineer and fireman can see them.
