Braaey Union of Board-Four B.loon kHWi Who Sold aunda7-lh Appulnt moat of Two How Moo froroked-A Kow Katluiate Considered. . Rev. Dr. Smyth, president of the New Haven Law ud Order league, threw a bombshell Into the camp of the police commissioners by sendin to the presi dent of the board a communication ac companies by four bottles, al) more or less filled with whiskey. These comes were all labeled with the name of the Dronrletor of the saloon where the 11 quor was bought. One of the bottles bore the name of Alderman John Moore with the statement that It was pur chased at bis saloon on Sunday, July 22, 1894, and at the time It was bought there were sixteen men In the ealoon drinking. In this bottle was one pint of whiskey. The other three bottles, each of which contained half a pint of whiskey, were alleged to have been purchased at the saloons of T. Kerrigan, 8t. John and Franklin street; M. Keegan, 38 Greene street, and McCarten ft McQueeney, 677 Grand avenue. All the bottles were caefully sealed and tied up. The latter three were purchased July 29. After the communication, which was printed In full In yesterday's courier, had been read, an Interesting discus sion followed, which at times became exceedingly warm and spirited, from the trend of the discussion it was piain lv aDDarent that the republican men bers of the board were In favor of a thorough investigation, while the dem ocratic members were as strongly P' nosed to any such Investigation. Commissioner Clancey claimed that the board had nothing to do with the matter, but that all complaints snouia be taken to the prosecuting attorney and Drosecution commenced. "I am In sympathy with the movement In one sense of the wora, dui it is not our amy to do any such thing as Is asked," said he. "But it is our duty to stop It If we can," said Commissioner Hunn. "We put men on and pay them to do their duty, and they ought to be made to do it." "I grant that ft is the dutyof the prosecuting officer to prosecww'these .cases, but at the same tlmetfotrfWili- cers are neglecting tnetr auty- we cer tainly ought to know It and know who thev are." said Commissioner Prince.- . Commissioner Clancey Well, tbrutti of the matter is that the. the Dolioe department Who are engagi ifa looklnr after llauor violators, IM such large beats that they cannot pos sibly go over them twice a day. Commissioner Gllhuly This whole matter Is none of our business. If the reverend gentleman has any charges of violation of the liquor law let htm take them to the prosecuting attorney. It's not our business to investigate them. "Well, we want to thoroughly Investi gate this matter and Sift It irom top to bottom," said commissioner uunn, "Not only have the charges been made against the efficiency of the department but against the commissioners as wen. Again, If any of our officers have been intimidated and In consequence do not do their duty we want to know that too." "Well, how do we know anything about this, anyway? interposed Com missioner Gllhuly. "We don't know the men who purchased the liquor, and for all we know they may have bought the whiskey Saturday night and subse quently claim to have purchased It on Sunday." At this point Commissioner Doolittle introduced a resolution to the effect that all matters referring to liquor 'violations be referred to the prosecuting attorney and that the matter of the formation of a secret service depart ment be referred to the court of com mon council. This latter is in compli ance with tne suggestion or jar. amytn. Subsequently, however, he withdrew the resolution, but will spring it later on. Commissioners Prince, Hunn and Poronto worked hard to secure a thorough Investigation and finally after considerable discussion, principally through their efforts, a motion was passed to the effect that Dr. Smyth be asked to appear before a special meeting of the board to be held some evening next week and at the same time the superintendent and four cap tains will also be present. Prior to this action being taken Com missioner Doolittle stated that no spe cific charges had been made and moved that the communication be received and placed on file. "Let Dr. Smyth come forward," said he, "with some specific charges and then we'll investigate." This motion was seconded by Commis sioner Clancey and amended by Com missioner Prince to the effect that Dr. Smyth be Invited to appear before the board some evening next week. After considerable discussion the amendment prevailed unanimously. Commissioner Poronto next intro duced a motion restoring to the officers the fees in liquor seizures. This was also opposed by the democratic contin gent and finally withdrawn for the present. The meeting finally broke up in a row. Commissioner Doolittle stating emphatically that he had his knife out and that he would use it for all he was worth. The fun occurred over the ap pointment of two men to the .force. The republicans united on E. J. Rellly. The. democrats, however, could not agree on one man, so named two, Com missioner. Gllhuly presented "the name of John HoQueeney and Commissioner Doolittle that of Thomas L. Dooghon, -When the ballots had been counted it was found that Rellly had. received ;Slx .votes, McQueeney four and Doughan two. The three republican, .members with Gllhuly voted- for McQueeney. When the vote was announced Commit sioner Doolittle lost all control .of htm- elf and, accused his brother commie- alnnar-a r9 ,4l.u.iitAAiia antinn and threatened them with the free use of tne unire. The board also considered estimates for next year. The only two items proposed are 11,000 for an ambulance and 12,293 with which to put the police wires underground. AT DATfBUttY FAIR.

Bouns, one of. the most popular employes of the Consolidated road, died at his home, 16 Christopher street, shortly after 11 o'clock on Thurs day night.

Mr. Bouns started in life as a rail road man nearly twenty-six years ago as a water boy. By careful attention to duty and at all times considerate for the welfare of the passengers with whom he came in contact he, even at that early age, attracted the attention of his superiors. It was but a short time after he gained some growth and strength that he was promoted to be a brakeman and from that position to baggage master his rise was a rapid one. He had been offered time after time the position of conductor of a through express train between New York and Boston," but each time the offer was declined; his family home was in New Haven and being the only son he did not care to break the cir cle. . , His last run was made from New Tork on the night of the last Labor day. At that time he complained to Con ductor Densmore that he was not feel ing well. The next day he was ill with Inflammation of the bowels. This illness continued for twenty-one days. Then a relapse set In, followed by brain fever, which caused his death. The funeral will take place from his late residence to-morrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.

The iork Whlrh tli Team Ha Been Out ' of lla. loiluonl Th.m to Wear Had-.i of Mournlng-KlrTrn Thousand I'eoi" Haw Yeaterdaya'a Game. Unit re, Md., Oct. 5.-Hundreds of Baltlmw ) enthusiasts who had arrang ed to go to New York to-night to see the orioles and giants play ball to morrow have cancelled their engage ments. Many of them have discarded their oriole decorations and have donn ed plain black. It was not alone the loss of to-dny's game by the orioles, however, thnt caused the dissatisfac tion. The behavior of the players while off the field had much to do with It. This morning the orioles were in ns uncertain frame of mind over the play ing of the Temple series as they were yesterday. Some of the players were sulking and were angling und MoOraw asserted he would not play another game. The people then began to criti cise the pennant winners and Insisted that the players defend the city's fair name for sportsmanlke conduct. Manager Hanlon presented the con ditions and the players and they were all on the field, but their minds were In a chaotic state nnd their nerves not of the steadiest. The boys put up a good game, however, and partially re deemed themselves In the opinions of their friends. The teams left for New York to-night, where the third game of the series will be played to-morrow. Nearly eleven thousand persona were on the grounds when the game was called. The New Yorks won by out-batting the home team. They earned four runs in the third inning. The Baltlmores tied the score In their half of the same inning and took the lead In the seventh. The giants tied the score in the eighth and won out In the ninth through Jennings' error. The side would have been retired had Jen nings made what would ordinarily have been an easy play. Tiernan's triple cleared the bases. The orioles scored one and had three men left on bases In the ninth. The score. .

SovaralTMU War M .do of Mia Itandebaan 1. 1 Oa ubmlltad by the HotchkiM Ord nanra (Vmoaay and Thay Ware round to land Tlirm. Newport.Oet. 5. The navnl rifle board to-day devoted Its time to the test of the Pnndebean rifle submitted b the HotchkikS Ordnance company. The company was represented by General Albert prdway, commanding the Na tional (luurd of the District of Colum bia, and Rlllc Inspector Thomas P. King of the same "iiparement. The test took place at the Rose Island range. First Mr. King fired twenl) shots from the rlflj as a single loader with manipulation, as a test of manipu lation by any expert. There were then twenty more shots flreu In a like man ner by one of the seamen gunners as a tout of manipulation of the arm by one not familiar with It. The endurance test was then made. This Is considered particularly severe, slncp five hundred rounds are to be llrud without cleaning or alteration of the piece. In five hundred rounds fired thirteen miFs-flres were noted, in but three of which could the csrtrldKes be llred In another gun. During the test there aUo developed a mechanical un steadiness of the work of the extractor, which, it Is claimed, may be overcome. The defective ammunition test had to be postponed because the ammunition supplied as defective was perfect. An attempt to stick cartridges by the use of rosin proved futile. Cartridges were given an excess of five grains of rillltc. The rapidity and accuracy tests consist ed of twenty shots each by experts and novices. The experts' time was 1:21 :15, novices' 2:14. The expert fired twenty eight phots in two minutes, and the novice twenty-five In a like time. In test of dissembling and assembling the rifle the experts' time was 1:26 and 1:46 resectlvely, novices' 2:07 and 3:20. The dust test will occur to-morrow and then the rifle will be prepared for the rust test. This rifle is of French Invention and a similar one is in use In the French cavalry and some South American coun tries. As submitted here It is consider ably Improved. Monday the Remington people are expected to test their pieces. AX 'S UAL piOCESAK COirfESTIOS: Daughters of the King from Thli llooi-o at Christ Church,- Man? Interesting HpaecbewTo-Day'a 8nrlc.

Each young lady who styles herself a Daughter of the King should endeavor to put her whole heart and sotif into the work of raising up the fallen and helping along the weak, so that she in truth may be a Daughter of the King.
