" The mmbert of the board of finance have practically completed their labors a far aa the estimates for next year are concerned, with the exception of thoae of tbe road department, and will aubmlt their report to a epeolal meet ing of the court of common council to be held In the near future. The date of thle meeting baa not yet been defi nitely decided upon, but it wlH proba bly be held early next week. The finance board baa held several meeting and ha practically formula ted Its report In reference to all the departments except the board of pub lic works. The members refuse to dis close what action haa been taken In ref erence ta the estimates of the several departments of the city government, but several Items of Interest have been learned from what la believed to be an authentic source. -. It Is stated that the board of finance will recommend the appropriations asked for by the police and fire de partments with which to place the wires of both departments under ground. It is also said that the finan ciers will recommend the granting of the appropriation of $1,000 asked for by the police department to pay for the ex pense of keeping two extra horses, which are to be -used by mounted po lice in protecting the property on the outskirts of the city. It is also said that the request of the police commis sioners for an appropriation sufficient to put twenty-four new ' men on the force, two from each ward, will not be granted, and that If an appropriation Is made which' will allow the placing on the force of one new man the po lice department will be unusually for tunate. The financiers have been busy cut ting down the estimates in the various departments. This action It is claimed is necessary owing to the fact that the estimated Income of the city will only be about $12,000 more than last year, while the extra appropriations asked for amount to several hundred thou eand dollars. In February the city will have to pay $15,000, the first pay ment on matured sewer bonds, so the Indications are .that the city will not Have as much money to spend as last year, and consequently, instead of the departments receiving more . money, they are likely, to receive even less than last year. -.. It Is more than probable that an ef fort will be made to flrcf some wa'ln which money can be -secured sc as'to enable the fire department to place the fire wires under ground. The city financiers recognize that something of this kind must be done to insure the workings of the wires, ana as the con duits have been, already laid it is pro posed to push the work forward as rapidly as possible. Although last year the fire department purchased a lot In the twelfth ward for the site of an engine house, and the department has asked for an appropriation with which to build the house, it is more than probable that the tot will be un- occupied at least during the present year, as the board of finance will re fuse to recommend the appropriation, Monday next the board of finance will hold another meeting, at which time some action will be taken on the esti mates of the board of public works. Up to the present time the financiers have been unable to do anything with the estimates of that department other than to give the members of the board a hearing on the matter. Monday, however, the members of the board of finance will give their entire atten tion to this department, as they have practically completed their labors on the estimates of all the other depart ments. As soon as :this is done they will complete their report to the court of common council, and a special meet ing of the board of aldermen may be called for Monday evening to take ac tlon on it OYSTEB TRADE DAMAGED. Estimated That Oyster Dealers Will Lone 100,000 Many Oysters From Deep Sea Water. , -, The statements which have been re cently made in -regard to oysters caus ing tvnhnld fever An araniint nf hafno- raised in water made foul by sewerage, has caused much damage to the oyster trade in this city. 'The oyster trade is the briskest between now and. New Tear's. One of the largest dealers In this city , has seventy openers at work opening 3,600 quarts per day, which Is about $800 worth of oysters per day at wholesale price. - This represents about $20,000 per month.' There are various other dealers who equal this, and alto-, gether the trade in New Haven oysters amounts to a quarter of a. million dol lars per month. The great bulk of this trade is in New . England and its ad joining territory, while a share of It extends over the country at large. It is estimated by a prominent citi zen that about $100,000' worth of dam age has befit inflicted on the trade. In some cases it is true that the oys ters are, brought from water tainted perhaps with sewerage. But , large part of the oysters' brought from deep sea water. are not anected, but come from- where there, can be no1 possible danger of -being tainted with the city sewerage.'""' v. -v ;V?C. Marcus p. Smith, of the firm of Smith Brothers', City Point, oyster dealers, expresses the opinion that the agita tion regarding the theory that oysters are the cause of the present pre valency of typhoid fever -will lave little or no effect on the oyster 'trade In general; because of tbe reason that but a small part of the oysters shipped from this qlty are harvested within miles of any flralnage, . - - - xmwm or rmm ohvkchbi.

An Old-Tlma Connecticut ontra vany . Our controversies nowadays are pret ty apt to be political; of old they were quite as often religious. This thought Is suggested and illustrated in an inci dent cited In William Root Bliss' new book, "Side Glimpses from the Colonial Meeting House," full of Interesting and curious revelations,, of the holy habits of our forefathers. Mr. Bliss, among other things, tells of the controversy caused by so (appa rently) small a thing as the change in the methods of psalm-slnglng In God's house; and quotes a petition sent by Joseph liawley, of Farmlngton, to the legislature at Hartford in May, 1725. Said petition humbfy showeth that Deacon Hart (sic.) ye chorister, one Sabbath day, in setting ye psalm, at tempted to sing Bella tune and your memorialist being used to ye old way, supposed ye deacon had aimed at Cambridge short tune and set It wrong, whereupon your petitioner Raised his Voice In ye said short tune and ye people followed him and so there was an unhappy discord in ye singing and ye blame was all imputed to your poor petitioner, anT John Hooker, Eqr sent for him and fined him for breaoh of Sabbath, and so your poor petitioner Is layed under a very heavle Scandal and Reproach, and Rendered vile and prophane for what he did in ye fear of God." Other times, other customs. This seems rather a tempest in a tea-pot to us now, yet the names of the parties implicated and the touch of human nature In the petition bring the grave document near, after all, while lead ing us to wish, sentimentally, that present, "unhappy discords" were of no more serious origin and as possible of sweet adjustment. Hartford Cour ant An Enjoyable Recaption. A most enjoyable reception was held in Harmonle hall by Keejey league No. 1, Thursday evening. The grand march led by Dr. James W.
