Alsm and Inoome Tax. Utteriv devoid of any decorat'on and trfen jf any het the Grind Opsra house presented a very bleak appear- a nee last evening upon ii: occasion of the drat local dmociatio rally of the campaign. Indeei it was so cold iu the house and the prospects of the party in the coming campaign are so decidedly cheerless that all through the evening the auditors were compelled to sit all olosely muffled up in over coats and even could not warm them selves up by vigorous applause, to which they resorted at ttaaa..when the atmos phere became more than usually chilly. The opera house was tolerably well filled with men and a scattering here and there of ladles. The two lower boxes on each side of the stage were filled with ladles and there were also several scattered around. In the orches tra chairs. Prior to the exercises at the opera 'house several hundred demo1 crats made a street parade, headed by the Second Regiment band, forming in front of the city hall and march ing' to the Seventh ward, where they were reinforced by the Seventh Ward Jefferson and Jocelyn Square Demo cratic clubs. They then marched to the New Haven house, from whence they escorted the speakers of the evening to the opera house. The arrival at the opera house was made at about 8:30 o'clock and a few minutes later the campaign thunder commenced to roll from the throats of the orators of the evening. Mayor Sar gent with Lieutenant Governor Cady, Judge Beardsley, Congressman Pigott and the other nominees of the demo crats on his right, occupied the front row of seats on the stage, while the seats in the rear were occupied by the vice presidents and secretaries of the meeting. All the candidates were greet ed with applause as4hey walked across the stage. After the band had rendered "Liberty Bell," as an opening to the rally, Mayor Sargent, the presiding officer of the evening, advanced! to the front of the platform and stated that although he had very little to do as presiding officer and that the other candidates would speak of the; Issues of the campaign, still he said: "I want to talk to jou a little while about wages of work men." This statement was received with decidedly audible laughter, as' was also a later statement to the effect that "the American, workingman is paid less for what he earns than any workman In any other country on the globe." This statement was also re ceived wltihi laughter, while one person In the audience more bold than the rest, said: "Yes, that statement Is especially true about the workmen at Sargent's factory " Mayor Sargent next introduced Lieu tenant Governor Cady as "the demo cratic candidate for governor and the man whom we propose to elect to rule over us for the-next two years." As Mr. Cady advanoed to the front of the stage the band struck up "Hall to the Chief" and for several seconds, in con sequence of the applause which greeted him, he was unable to cohimence with his speech. When finally order had been secured the democratic candidate for governor made a very VJpe speech, during whiohl he said that the present state constitution hadi outlived its use fulness and that the real issue In this campaign was to he consti tutional -revision and,- this was the platform on which the demo crats of the state stood. He claimed also thia the tariff was no issue In the present campaign, that the present Wilson bill was an excellent one and that while Grover Cleveland was president of the United States there could be no. change In the present tariff law. , He also denounced the so called Inequality of representation. At the conclusion of his remarks he was heartily applauded. At this point the band played "Annie Laurie" and Judge Beadsley was in troduced. He said In part: "I bring you greeting and good cheer from the democracy of Bridgeport. We are un divided and will roll up a big majority for democracy In November next I cannot speak too: highly of the man who has been nominated, for governor. (Applause.) He then lauded the demo cratic platf orm. to the skies and as bit terly assailed the republican principles and platform:' He also dwelt at length on the inequality of representation and strongly urged constitutional revision. The state has more judges than all Eng land, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with 1 their 22,000,000 inhabitants," he said, "and this fact is all due to the- old worn out constitution of the state."- He then assailed the A. P. A. and claimed that the republicans bad formed an unholy alliance with that secret society and positively protested against any such organization being allowed to ex ist on the shores of the land of the free. (Repeated applause.) '.-- -y ' , Edward G. Kilduff of Waterbury was next' Introduced y Mayor Sar gent,, who spoke of him as the "best mayor In any Connecticut -city." . The gist of his remarks were eulogistic of Congressman Pigott, and the forcible plea for his re-election. He then turn ed to the old chestnut of representation,1 but advanced no arguments' beyond those advanced by the previous speak ers.' Avy '" ' '.;'.-, .;, " N' '""'' ' r-V: '-.V' Stephen O. Bowen, the candidate for' , state treasurer, was next introduced, ' and was greeted with tumultuous ap plause. He stated that, he had helped to ,' nominate a man for congressman from ' the Third district, 'Hon. Thomas; M. Waller, (cheers and loud applause), and although it was a dark district for ( democrats, be hoped to elect him, fli we do," said he, "we shall send to con gress the best four horse team ever sent from this good old state of Connecticut. Ladles and gentlemen. In the words of the senior senator of New York state, "I am a democrat," Mr. Bowen's speech was tumultuous ly applauded, and when he sat down he was again called to his feet with cries of "give us more," but he said he did not want to detract any more from the time of Congrcsiman Pigott Comptroller Staub, who was the next speaker, stated that he was one of the men whom the A. P. Alsts were after. After exhorting all to stand by the democracy he said that In his opinion the entire state ticket would be elected. "Well, you took the crowbar from Governor BulUeley," called out someone in the audience. "WolUhat didn't hurt me. He couldn't scare the big pig headed Dutchman," replied the comptroller, amid applause and laughter. Congressman Pigott was the next speaker of the evening and spoke at length, upon the political Issues of the day, dwelling chiefly upon A. P. Alsm. He said: "I know some of the repub licans think I am going to be defeated, but I do not fear It I know that if Mr. Sperry had been allowed to remain In the postoffice the republicans of this district would have had to nominate a different candidate, and I am told that he was perfectly willing to re main. I am sure that in all his duties my opponent has been a capable, honeat and efficient official. But his duties have always been of an administrative, and not a legislative nature. The speaker then at length went Into the subject of "Know Nothlnglsm." which, he claimed, was the same . the present A. P. A., and N. D. Sperry'!, connection with the former. He also stated that the republicans had allied themselves with this reprehensible or ganization. "Now," said he, "If there are any members of the A P. A. in this hall to-nlgSt, I want to tell you that you are so frightened In consequence of the publicity which has been given your doings that you have been com pelled to change your pass word, and if anyone desires to attend an "A. P. A." meeting you must use that pass word," pointing to the canvass at the rear of the stage bearing the words "No Sur render. This banner was borne through the parade by the Seventh ward democrats. Mr. Pigott also stated that the re publican candidate fur governor, O. Vincent Coffin, was willing to join the A. P. A., but had not done so, acting oh the advice of Mr. Corbin of New Britain, who claimed that it would not be ad visable' at the present time. When this statement was made by the speaker there, was slight applause, which was rendered partially Inaudible by the most pronounced hisses and expressions of disapproval. "... ..', Later in the, evening Mr. Pigott com menced to' talk tariff figures, and as he did so many of his auditors arose to leave the hall Mr.' Pigott quickly noticed this and said: "I know there are many of you who have to, get up early in the morning, and consequently have to re tire early, so I would request all of you who so desire, to leave now, in order that I may continue uninterruptedly." This Invitation was cordially accetped and several hundred left the hall. After they had gone the speaker continued, dwelling upon, the income tax and other acts of the recent democratic congress, and claimed that the present tariff law was much more equitable and Just than any tariff law on the statute books of the country. When Mr. Pigott concluded he was ap plauded, and while the band played "Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow" the audience dispersed. An. ef fort was made to ascertain whether that special selection was rendered in a spirit of thankfulness that the chilly rally was over or not, but all efforts In this direction was of no 'avail. Con gressman Pigott and Lieutenant Gover onr Cady both read their speeches. SHU IS XOTIXSA1TE. Queen Lil Is Chagrined at the Tarn Affairs Have Taken, Washington, Oct. 15. No informa tion has been received here confirmato ry of the report that Queen Liliuokalani has become Insane. In well informed circles it is not believed. The fact is known that the queen is greatly cha grined at the action of this government in recognizing the new republic. For some days after the receipt of the intelligence that the republio had been recognized, the queen remained secluded in her room, refusing to see any one except intimate friends. , More recent advices state that she suffered subsequently from a slight illness, but later reports show her to have recov ered. She is living quietly at her resi dence on the street in the rear of the national palace. It is believed that the new rulers of the republic will -make the . deposed queen a suitable provision as soon as she manifests a disposition to cultivate good relations between herself and President Dole's ministry. : HARVARD XJr ILL LUCK.

Beset with some foes with in our lines, let us make them see the dangers that threaten the old demo cratic party, and those who have any democracy In them will before the cam paign ends fight with us and for us. This Is a death struggle with the party which gave us the McKlnley bill and the Sherman silver law. "The people discarded those theories of currency and tariff In 1892 by the election of Mr. Cleveland, and those who Inflicted the evils upon us now ask restoration of power, when the country Is Just geting over the drunken debauch in which they left it Our ene mies now say we have caused the pan ic and hard times.

Ia rKrUrr End an Intcroslla, . ml at t'onvy Island. Con- . Island. Oct. 15. The Atlantic Athletic club gave Its first fistic car nival to-night In the old Sea Beach Palace, which wa converted Into a boxing arena. About 2,000 people were present. The first bout was between Tim Murphy of New York, and Jerry Sullivan of Brooklyn. The lads weighed In at 115 pounds. The police stopped the fight In the fourth round, - when blood began to flow freely from Sulli van's nose. Murphy was declared the winner. The next event was an eight-round bout between Illlly Ernest of Brooklyn, and Jim Holmes of New York, at 13o pounds. Holmes' Injured Ms wrist In the fifth, and being unable to continue, the bout was Klven to Ernest. The final bout was the event of the evening. The contestants were Austin Gibbons of Paterson, N. J., and Joe Walcott, colored, of Boston. "The men fought at 14S pounds. Walcott was looked after by Tom O'Rourke and Jack Fogarty, while the seconds of Gibbons were his two brothers, Jim and Rich ard, Charley Norton, Con Rlordan and John Kirwln. After the contestants had appeared GrlfTo. got Into the ring fland offered to meet any 133 pound man In America. O'Kourke took It up, but Inspector Mc Kelvey ordered the men off the stage and it was all the management ceuld do to square matters. In the first round Walcott landed heavily with his left. Gibbons made several wild swings, but failed to land. Walcott fought him all over the ring. ' Gibbons' blows appeared to have no force. The round ended In Walcott's favor. In the second round Walcott forced the fighting and landed many telling blows. Gibbons was clever, but seemed to have but little steam to his blows. He fought well, but the colored man seemed to have a shade the better of the round. In the third round Gibbons sent a hot one on Walcottt's wind, but got several swingers In return. Gibbons uppercut Walcott several times, but the colored man fought back gamely, landed three terrific blows In Gibbons' wind and sent him down with a heavy right hander. Gibbons was almost out and only the call of time saved him from defeat. Gibbons was bleeding from the ear at the call of time. Walcott went at Gibbons in the fourth round, like a pile-driver, landing his left on Gibbons' ribs and neck In rapid succession. Gibbons kept growing weaker all the time until Walcott, see ing his chapce, landed his right with terrific force and sent Gibbons to the floor like a log. He was picked up' and carried to his corner, but he was still so stupid that he did not know where he was. This ended the bout, as Inspector McKelvey said: "The show is over." The fourth round was not more than half over, but Gibbons could not have responded In ten seconds had the bout been allowed to go to a finish. It was a clean knock-out. Griffo then declared himself to the press, saying that he would fight Wal cott, McAuliffe or any other man in America ten rounds for $5,000 a side. No one paid any attention to him. The New Skirts. From Harper's Ilazar.l The variety in new gowns, and also much of their chic, lie in the skirt. No one style is preferred above all others. There are seldom two skirts precisely alike, yet all are very plain. All are made full at the foot and scant at the top, but they are of most various widths. Each famous Paris house has its own models, differing from those of its neighbors in many ways, particular ly in the number of breadths and in the way of supporting them, whether by steels, hair-cloth, canvas or crinoline, or by omitting all Interlining in. favor of very soft folds. New fabrics require different treatment, and the cut varies as the skirts are meant for the house or the street, for driving or walking, for general use or for dress or evening wear. There are skirts appropriate for the short or the tall, the stout or the slender figure, and thus something, sat isfactory to all tastes Is found, and there is fair promise of much individu ality in dress when the new gowns are worn. The lining of taffeta or of percaline is first fitted on the wearer, and with as much care as is waist lining. If darts are necessary to fit the hips they ,are now often in the lining only. All. the breadths of the lining are sewed togeth er and ecru canvas or gray hair-cloth is basted smoothly on the seamy side, extending to the top of the four back breadths, and about ten inches deep across the front and sides. The woolen outside breadths having been sewed to gether, the skirt and its lining are joined by a seam around the foot, then turned with all seams inside, and tacked occasionally In the seams v?ith blind stitches. When a bias seam comes directly down the middle of the back it is sometimes thought best to sew the outside and lining together down this seam, pressing it open flatly and binding each edge. This, however, is more seldom done at present than formerly. A wide wool braid is stitched twice around the foot of the skirt next the lining, or else an inch wide bias band of velveteen covers the seam and protects the edge by extend ing slightly below it. There is a ten dency to do away with the balayeuse tfr dust ruffle on street gowns, as the silk of 'which it Is made soon wears shabby and must be often renewed. . The flat belt should be of cilk belting an inch wide, stitched on a silk lining. A single rubber strap, or else a strong ribbon, it placed quite high across the godet folds to hold the curves in shape, and it is said a wire'is to cross near the pleated top of these folds to make them project slightlx, , . - POLICY PLAYERS AJtRESTED riVIITEJiX ARE .11 PR EH ENDED OX POR y-O.V E I OM I' LAIS TS.

All the parapher nalia captured at the headquarters t the time of the raid Is still in the ous tody of the police and will be used aa evidence against the prisoners at tha trial this morning. The warrants on, which the accused were arrested ara unusually voluminous and cover four pages of type-written copy. Chinese Superstition. Crowds of people assembled aa we ar rived at the inn, just before sunset, and among others I spotted the fine head of! an old Buddhist priest. After a long confabulation and a few strings at cash, which passed from my pocket into his hands, I was able to induce him to sit for his picture, ahd I dashed off a sketch In oils before he had tlma to change hlB mind. Unfortunately tha large crowd that had gathered round, especially the women folks, seemed to scold him and talk angrily at him for his silliness in sitting, owing to tha strange notion that prevails In China, and, In fact, nearly all over the east, that if an image Is reproduced, a soul has to be given to it and that the per son portrayed has to be the supplier of) it at his own expense. The venerable old Buddhist priest, who was nursing his "cash" on his lap while being im mortalized on a wooden panel, and htuX a curious twinkle In his eye, as if hq knew better, resisted bravely for somq time and sat like a statue, but finally) had to give in. "You will die,", cried an old woman) at him; "I saw your soul coming out of! you and go Into the picture. I really: did; I saw It with my own eyes!" 1 "So did I," cried a hundred othe voices in a chorus. By the time the priest had got up they had half convinced him that at least half his soul had really gone out of him; but had the soul gone or not he would go and take the cash for safd keeping to his home first, and complain and ask for the restitution of his lost property afterward. Ho was a sensi ble man. So was I, and' knowing what was coming, the moment he had gone I went into the room and packed the sketch safely, then took another clean panel and smeared It with the scrap ings of my palette to show him ineteafl. In case he would come back and wlsfh the picture destroyed. Twenty minutes had not elapsed when he was bad! again, of course without the "cash','' holding his stomach and complaining) of internal agonies. "I am going to die," he cried, the mo ment he saw me; "you have taken away half my soul!" "Certainly I have," said I sternlfc. "You did not expect me to give you all that 'cash' for less than half your soul, did you?" "Oh. no! but I wish it back, as I feel so bad now without it." i "All right," said I. "I shall go In tha room and destroy the image I did oi you; will you then be satisfied?" "Yes." Here the other panel smeared with! palette scrapings was produced, afte making pretence at destroying It with a knife, and never in my life have I seen an expression of relief to equal that of the priest. He had not felt halt his soul so much going out of him, but he certainly had felt It coming back again. He could swear by it. He was) now perfectly well again! This wonderful cure gave us all a very busy evening. All the villagers who had complaints of any sort came to, us to be restored to health. A leper who had lost all his fingers wished msj to make them grow again; and a pitiful case of a poor child, only a few months old, was brought up, whose mother while busy stirring boiling water in m big cauldron, had dropped the child in by mistake. He was so badly seals tdj that I am afraid, though I tried to ra lleve his pain, the poor child cannof have lived more than a few hours,- Fortnightlx RevlejBi .
