CADY MAT WITHDRAW. Hartford, Sept.. 23. The fifteen . dele gates from Hartford to the state con vention had a caucus here to-night. Hon. A. E. Burr, the editor of the Hart ford Times, appeared before the dele gation and made a powerful plea for the delegates to support Lieutenant Gover nor Cady for governor. There was a good deal of opposition to the proposi tion to pledge the delegates to Mr. Cady and a vote Was taken which showed that not over three of the Hartford delegation were In favor of the lieuten ant governor. The delegation Anally voted In favor of supporting Judge Beardsley of Bridgeport for governor. In view of the vote the report gained circulation that by Monday Mr. Cady would withdraw from, the gubernatorial race. HARTFORD JEWELERS UX1TE At an Important Meeting Held There A Similar Meeting to be Held Here. A large and representative meeting of the Jewelry trade of Hartford was held the United States hotel last Frldey evening to hear Mr. Newton Dexter of New York state. The Hartford Times says: "They were well repaid for at tending, as Mr. Dexter proved himself a forcible and interesting speaker and portrayed the abuses that pirate upon the jewelry trade of the' country. He showed, the great benefit the jeweler and the purchaser as well would derive by the passage, of a national law that would make it a misdemeanor for any manufacturer to stamp his goods a higher karat or pennyweight than they really were. He asserted that the pub lie to-day had no protection from un scrupulous dealers who palmed off through peddlers, auction stores and other channels, false goods. It was the unanimous opinion of all the jewelers present that the sooner such a law was placed upon the statute books the bet ter-for all concerned. Mr. Dexter showed how he had purchased in cloth ing stores watches for 39.98 and that the dealers had advertised that jewelers would charge for the same article from $25 to $35." Other statements In the line were made by Mr. Dexter and the meeting unanimously resolved to or ganize a permanent association to fur ther the cause represented by Mr. Dex ter. Mr. Dexter in pursuance of his la bora is to visit New Haven, and a meet ing of New Haven jewelers is to be held to-morrow evening at the store of C. M Parker, 810 Chapel street, to. consider the alleged abuses, and it appears quite evident that action will be taken simi lar to that of the jewelers of Hartford Mr. Dexter said in an interview Satur day night that these associations were not to combine upon prices or anything else, but simply for just and legitimate protection of themselves and the public. As the matter now stood the public are not protected from impostors at all. The" stamp marks on goods were no guarantee at-all except as they came from respectable, honest dealers. Mr. Dexter illustrated with many examples of how the public are deceived and gulled by peddlers and at auctions. He anticipates meeting with the same success here he has met with in many cities. He is a very estimable man and is a near connection of one of our old and esteemed New Haven families. WHISKEY TRUST PROTESTS. It Object to the New Tariff Law's Provls . . iont. Chicago, 'Sept. 23. The Distilling and Cattle -Feedlngompariy filed protests yesterday at revenue offices ,ln Chicago and Peoria against the new tariff law's provision for increased bonds, which the distillers are compelled to give to secure the payment of the tax, on the spirits bonded before the new : law weht into effect. Distillers were under bonds to the full amount of the whis key In the warehouses' at ninety cents a gallon. The renewal of thebonds was necessary at the rate of $1.10. With the. protest new bonds; for- the whiskey in bond at Chicago were yes terday filed by H. S. Taylor, assistant general manager for the Distilling com pany here.

A., have Just re turned from the annual physical di rector's conference held August 31 to September 6, Inclusive, at Bpringfleld, There were about thirty physical di rectors' present, and the meetings were presided over by Dr. Luther Oullck, superintendent of the physical direc tor's department at the Springfield Training school. The meetings were held In the new gymnasium. The ses sions were held In the morning and practical work was done In the after noon. The Y. M. C. A. Athletio League of North America was organized and the physical directors alto united under a physical director's compact. This will promote uniformity In the work. There will be a common ground of class work. The following ten events were select ed for the In-door test: Free work, dumb-bells, parallel bars, side horse, horizontal bar, potato race, standing broad Jump, high Jump, long horse and pole vault. ' A new system of scoring by points has been adopted which will undoubt edly meet with great success. A min imum and a maximum record is estab lished for each event brought under the new'. system, and a man may rrsake from one to one hundred polnts.accord- ing to his record. For instance, take the running broad jump. The mini mum Is eleven feet eight Inches and the maximum twenty feet. It will be seen there Is a distance of one hundred Inches between the minimum and the maximum. Suppose a man Jumps elev en feet nine inches, he scores one point. If he jumps sixteen feet eight Inches, he scores sixty points. If he jumps twenty feet he scores one hundred points; If he Jumps twenty feet six inch es, he scores one hundred and six points, and so on. With this explana tion the following table will be perfect ly clear: Event. Minimum. Maximum. Score. 8 Inches for lz-pound shot. 18 feet. 43 feet a point. 3 Inches 16-pound shot. Hfeet.

The Quinnipiac river is flooded and the river meadows cannot be used for cow pastures to any advantage for .a few days uptil the water goes down. There will be no more trouble the rest of this season about scarcity of corporation water. The receiving res ervoir got a large supply in Wednes day's fall of rain. Send in your entries to the Bristol fair, Saturday and Monday, to T. H. Kelrns, secretary. The ' fair is to be held two days, Tuesday and Wednes day. Both the up and down rflornlng pas senger trains were delayed here yes terday a half hour by a freight train in front of the edge tool shop, two of whose cars jumped the track while the freight engine No. 27 was backing on to a siding, and thus blocking the main track. An end truck of a box and also a fiat car Were off the rails, but there was no other damage. The work of getting them back on the track was watched by a good sized crowd. There has been Borne correspondence between railroad officials and the au thorities here with regard to locomo tive whistling in the borough, arid the railroad officials are to order the engi neers to blow their whistles In a sub dued way. The Southjngton .warden does not care, nor do the people of the borough care any more than do the peo ple of New Haven, how loud the whis tling is If it is absolutely necessary to protect life, but if it is not necessary then let the blowing be low and full instead of loud and shrill. , ! . . It is 'stated that the Electric Tram way Co. wants three thousand dol lars for lighting streets, and that, the borough is willing to pay $2,800. -The difference, $200, will prevent the eighty additional lights being put up. Tills matter we hope will be adjusted so as to have the lights In running order this winter. THE ClOTTD WAS ALIVE. A Vast" S-irttr'rti of Winged Ants Moving Swiftly In the Sky. From the Ttlca Obaerver.l "While driving home from Oneida last Friday," said a farmer who lives in the extreme western part of , the country, "I saw a big cloud moving due north over the fields and woods. There wasn't any wind blowing, the air was still, and I was unable -to ac count for the presence of a big dark cloud speeding away across the heav ens on such a still, bright day. ' .-. 'At first I thought that it was" a cloud of smoke from the railroads, but then when I first saw It the cloud vrat In such a position that it could not possibly have come from the West Shore railroad, and even if it had there never was a cloud of smoke that himg so closely together and so long as that did. As I sat in my .wagon it appeared to me to be a mile long and perhaps half a mile wide, but, of course, that part of it was all speculation, for no one can make a very accurate gussof the size of a cloud. The body In (the sky was as dalk as the smoke from a locomotive, and looked to be quite dense. It traveled quicker than any clouU ever scudded before a thunder shower in this section. ; Wen it first attracted attention it was high up in the heavens, but it rose and, tell several times like the soaring of a bird. Once it was but a few feet above the top of.l omits?, und t'ontlnu?d onward In on unswerving north course. It was about five o'clock that the cloud psawd. "That evening I noticed a number of r:ddlih winged wood anls about on the grass and In the road. It occurred to me that the strange cloud in motion mght have' been cloud of' these fly Ing ants. The more I rendered ever the phenomenon the more 1 became con vinced that It was a cloud of ants that passed over the country. Such a story was too big for me to tell, although there was proof enough of the fact for my mind, so I held my peace and sim ply spoke to my family of ibe strange cloud. Others had seen It, too, yet none suspected what it was, and we finally dlamlaned It. "A day or two afterward I was In Conatablevllle and there the farmers told me Uiey had seen the same thing, there was no doubt about It either, for a number of them watched the cloud and at that place It passed so low that they caught the Insects In their hsnds. They were the same flying ants. We compared notes and found that It re quired Just an hour for the swarm to move from the place where they were first seen to Constablevllle. Tlio dis tance in a straight line la thirty-one miles. They were in Oneida county at five o'clock and at Just six o'clock they were seon In the north. The ants con tinued northward and nobody has told me where Uicy stopped." ' Oregon Short I.loe. Boston The committee representing the holders of the five per cent, con sols and the five per cent, collateral trust bonds of the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern Railway Co. make Important announcement to the bond holders urging the 'immediate deposit of all Bonds for engraved negotiable receipts,-which are how ready to Issue. They say: "The receivers of the Union Pacific system have applied to the court to be relieved from the obligations of the traffic agreement betw?en the Union Pacific Co. and the Oregon Short Line and Utah Northern Railway Co., which Is the only bond between the two companies, and It is probable that their application will be granted. In these circumstances It is very impor tant to secure united action by all the bondholders to protect their Interests, and to have them represented by an Independent committee." Holders can deposit their bonds with the American Loan and Trust Co., Boston, and the New York Guaranty and Indemnity Co., New York. Appli cation will be made to llet the negotia ble receipts on the New York Stock Exchange. Some Summer Ke6rt Near Boaton.

Their sales-room is on the beach and proves an endles source of attraction to the children, as welt as profit to its enterprising proprietors. Leaving the toy shop we come to the gay scenes in real life' on the sand: The queer little donkeys with their gaily painted carts and costumed drivers, and the toboggan slide that sends its merry parties spinning from a dizzy height, are a Joy to the younger portion of the crowd as well as the dancing hall.

On the whole, how ever, the Rock Island Incident has been taken very rationally. Here and there the rubbish printed this morning In some quarters, denouncing franti cally the directors' action, has found frlfling favor. But no Intelligent ob server thinks of arguing that the com pany's surplus ought io have been used for dividends. This is a notion worthy of an Infant school.
