Two Hundredth Anniversary of the
Kstablislmicnt in Connecticut.
Stratford, Conn., June : 12. : Com
memoration of the 200th anniversary
of the establishment in Connecticut of
the church of England was held to
day In Christ church here in the pres
ence of one of the most distinguished
bodies of churchmen that has been
seen in the state.
This v;ub the first parish in the state
and its histoiy is closely interwoven
with the story of the English church
in all Xew England. The book of
common prayer was adopted by the
parish in 1702 and the church edifice
put up cn the present site of which, in
architecture the existent structure is a
modern elaboration. The parish itself
in those days was assisted by the ven
erable Society for the Propagation of
the gospel in foreign parts. A dissolu
tion of relations with that body came
with the severance of relations be
tween the United States and Great
Britain. The town and parish records
show that a spiritual warfare existed
in li09 owing to the "dangers of
episcopacy" as set forth by the-Con
gregationalism, and parishioners were
not only fined for holding services but
were forbidden to vote or to hold of
fice. Boycotts and heavy fines were
means used to compel Christ church
members to assist in support of the
orthodox church and state govern
ment. For a tim; the missionaries sent to
this pari6h had spiritual oversight in
the many parishes established in Con
necticut and Rhode Island, and the
influence of these men is also noted
in the parishes later established in
western New York. Today's celebration
was divided into two parts, that of the
morning being religious and historical
in character.

The accident happened as the ma

"flight" and the cars were at the time
only ten feet from the ground. Th

Kansas Cry. June 12. The fall of the
monster circular swing at Electric park
last night, about 11 o'clock, injured
eight persons and created a panic in
the crowd of pleasure seekers. Th.;
accident occurred when the cars at
tached to the swine were not crowded
with passengers. The breaking of the
Pteel shatt upon which the entire super
structure was supported was the direct
cause of the drop.
The swing was a huge umbrella

Another Judge Forced Verdict
in Spite of Jury.
An interesting lawsuit from Norton
county was filed today in the supreme
court. H. F. Bashford sued L. D. Wells
for slander, and asked for $5,000 dam
ages. He wanted $1,000 apiece for five
different occasions on which he alleged
that Well3 had said to different people.
in substance, that he caught Bashford
out late at night on June 13, 1905, with
a woman. Bashford said that this story
was injuring his reputation with the
people of his community, because the
inference was that he was untrue to his
Mr. Wells, came back with an answer
which was of a decidedly unusual char
acter. He denied that he had slandered
Bashford, and declared, as a matter of
fact, that Bashford had been out at a
certain place on the railroad ritrht of
way on the night mentioned with u
woman unknown to the defense, anil
that on that occasion he was euiltv of

When tho case came on for trial
Wells' attorneys demurred to the plain

said that even admitting that Wells had
said what it was charged he had said.
intie was no s.anaer in it, except as
Bashford assumed there was slander in
it by innuendo. The court sustained
the demurrer and Bashford appeals.
Another Interesting western Kansas
case which was appealed yesterday is
a harmless looking little proceeding in
wnicn j. m. jveville and E. W. Simpson
suea x. i. v inn for a settlement on
real estate deal, in which the plaintiffs
acted as agents. The amount claimed
was $387.50. Winn claimed that Neville
& Thompson misrepresented facts, and
tnat as a counter claim, should pay
nim hjv ror traveling expenses incurred
on their account. Judge William E.
Hutchinson, who was trying the case,
came to the conclusion that on the law,
verdict should be rendered for the
plaintiffs, and against Winn. He in
structed the jury to sign such a verdict
without leaving their seats.
The jury, manifesting true western
Independence, rebelled. The attorneys
for Winn asked that the jury be polled,
and here are some of the replies given
when the court asked the various mem
bers if the verdict was theirs:
Mr. Bruce: "No. sir. I would rather
have the evidence; I rather review the
evidence before giving my verdict in
the matter."
Judge Hutchinson reminded him that
he had agreed to try the case according
to tne law as interpreted by the court.
and the court instructed him to find a
'Under the circumstances," said
Bruce, "I suppose it will be my verdict."
Mr. Webber was asked If It was his
'No, not exactly," he said, "but un
der that ruling I suppose I will have
to accept it."
Mr. Gear said: It ain t my verdict.
but according to the ruling, I suppose
it has to be, but I think the next time
you won't need any jury."
Mr. Mitchell: "No. sir, as I under-
tand this case it ain't. I understood
that the judge would give the instruc
tions, and we would be the judges of
the evidence." ;
The court explained that the law
warranted a verdict, and Mitchell re
luctantly agreed. ....
The Judgment was for $387, and
Winn, through his attorneys, E. R.
Thorpe and W. R. Hopkins, appealed.
The case of W. O. Beardwell against
the Union Pacific was appealed from
Graham county by the Union Pacific.
Beardwell shipped 232 hogs in August.
1905. from Morland and Hill City to
Kansas City. The hogs lay in the hot
sun at Salina for eight hours, and
three died of heat. Beardwell claimed
that there was a serious shrinkage in
the remaining hogs, and sued for $860.
He got a Judgment for $249.50, and
the railroad company appeals.
