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.

to do this enacted a sugar tax of $43,
000,000 and an odious Income tax. He

bonded debt, spoliating the gold reserve,
attacking the pension system, repealing
the federal election laws, looting the

One of the Most Popular Consolidated Em
ployes Passei Away.
Cyrus F. 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. He was a most active man,
never laid off, even on a holiday, and
through his courteous bearing won
friends in all walks of life.
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 pallbearers will be
Conductors Densmore, Hanover, Cone
and Klrtland.
COVBTS Will. SETTLE IT.
The Wool Schedule of the Tariff Bill to to

Washington, Oct. 5. The vexed ques
tions arising in the wool schedule of the
new tariff bill will be finally settled in
the courts. This decision was reached
by Secretary Carlisle to-day as the most
satlsfactgry method of disposing of the
matter.
; Until January I next, therefore, the
position taken by the board of general
appraisers at New Tork that, the M6
Kinley rates of duty obtain on wool
and that hair of animals Is wool will
be followed by the treasury department
inassessing duryvon this schedule.. Im
porters" can file their protests andproteet
themselves awaiting the decision of the
courts. If adverse to the government
the difference between the higher and
lower rate of duty will of course be re
funded - v ,

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.

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.

Daughters of the King from Thli llooi-o
at Christ Church,- Man? Interesting
HpaecbewTo-Day'a 8nrlc.
" The annual diocesan convention of the
Daughters of the King began f.t Christ;
church yesterday morning. A service
of prayer was first held and the holy
communion was celebrated. Rev. G
Brinley Morgan, rector of Christ
church, officiating. The business meet
ing was held afterwards end the fol
lowing, officers were elected: Presi
dent, Mrs. G. Brinley Morgan, in place
of Mrs. Woodcock of Ansonia; vice pres
ident, Mrs. William Lusk of New Ha
ven; secretary and treasurer, Miss Paul
ine Phillips of Derby, In place of Mrs.
George H. Peck. A constitution and
by-laws were adopted. Shortly after
noon a luncheon was served by the
ladles of the church.
In the afternoon a meeting was held
at which several very Interesting ad
dresses were made on "The Claims of
the Church on the Daughters' of the
King." Rev. O. H. Rafferty of Port
land, Conn., was to have spoken on
"Service; What to do and how to do it."
He was unable to be present, however.
So the first address was made by Rev.
R. H. Nelson of Norwich, Conn., on
"Prayer; How to pray and for whom
to pray." It was a most excellent ad
dress and was.listened to with great in
terest by the large congregation pres
ent. He was followed by the Rev. C.
G. Bristol of Hartford, who spoke on
"Assistance to the Clergy; Willingness
and Loyalty." Rev. George H. Buck
of Birmingham then spoke on "Faith
fulness; Reliability and Consistency."
He especially dwelt on the topic of con
sistency, saying that the personal In
fluence, which goes forth from each
member of this noble asosclatlon of the
young ladies of the best families of
the community, should be such, as would
reflect credit on the .organization and
on the church to which it has proved
so capable, worthy and efficient an as
sistant. 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. It is a noble title and let
it be borne nobly.
The last address was made by Rev.
S. B. Pond of Norwalk, Conn., on "Spir
ituality; Growth and Influence.'
Last evening there was a choral even
song at 7:30 o'clock, followed by an ad
dress by the Rev. L. G. Watson of
Kingston, N. Y., preparatory to the
"Quiet Day" services, which will be held
to-day. The services will be as fol
lows: 7 a. m. Holy communion.
9:30 a. m. Morning prayer and first
