John Burns ud His TJaoU Get Into a Bow
la Which I ha Young Strikes the
Ktder Who Then Draw a Knl e and
Flange It Into' John's Heart.
Waterbury, Dec 13. John Burn, an
unmarried man twenty-five years of
age, was murdered at 2 o'clock this
' morning In a brutal manner In front of
bis' own noma by his unole, William
Burns, who Is a few years his senior.
The murder was the result of a quarrel
which Burns had with his nephew dur
ing the evening In a saloon, and which
was caused over a small matter.
Burns and his nephew have not been
on the best of terms with each other
for some time and last evening they
happened to meet in Hackett's saloon
on East Main street Both had been
drinking, though not together.
While they were in the saloon Wil
liam Burns walked up to his nephew,
who was standing before the bar, and
demanded the fish line which he claim
ed his nephew had belonging to him.
Burns' request brought an unsatisfac
tory answer from his nephew and a
wordy quarrel followed. The men near
ly came to blows In the saloon, but the
fight there was prevented by the bar
tender closing up the place, for it was
then midnight. . '
After leaving the saloon Burns walk
ed down the street In the direction of
. his home. He was followed a short
distance behind by his unole. As Burns
approached his own home his unole
quickened his steps and came up to
- him and renewed the quarrel. The
men had a lively dispute and finally
the younger Burns struck his uncle a
"blow In the face, which enraged the
uncle, who made a rush for his nephew.
The younger man struck his uncle an
other blow, and with this Burns pulled
out a pocket knife and stabbed his
nephew in the heart, inflicting a mor
tal wound.
Toung Burns made one gasp and fell
over dead upon the sidewalk. Burns
Immediately fled and went to his home
on the street where he committed the
crime.' Burn's body was discovered ly
ing on, the sidewalk by a pedestrian
Who happened to be passing by, and
he notified the people In the house.
Btirns' body was borne Into the house
and meswngejs.were sent after physi
cians. . Be was, however, dead, and
-when the physicians arrived they found
a wound in the heart about an Inch In
Medical Examiner Axtelle of this city
was summoned and after making an
examination notified Coroner Mix of
New Haven. In the meantime the fact
that Burns had trouble with his uncle
In Hackett's saloon became known and
the police began a search for the uiicle.
He was found at his home In bed, but
was taken to the police station and
locked up.
' This morning Coroner Mix came up
to this city from New Haven and be
gan an investigation. Burns was seen
In his celt in the police station, and
when first questioned by the coroner
he denied everything about the affair.
There were witnesses who saw the
trouble in the saloon and after some
harp questioning "by the coroner he
made ft clean breast of the whole affair
and admitted that he killed his neph
ew. He said that the young man had
aggravated him and that after he had
been struck twice he drew the knife
from his pocket for tfte purpose of de
fending himself. He stated that his
nephew was under the Influence of li
quor and after A-awing the knife he
pressed forward and was stabbed.
Coroner Mix ordered that Burns be
held for a hearing on the charge of
murder. He will be brought before the
city court In the morning. Burns told
the police that the knife, with which
he had stabbed his nephew could be
found under a plank in the kitchen at
his home. The police officers went to
' the house and searched for the knife,
but It could not be found.

The Spy Mails In rruc Hat Stirred Bp
tha Germans.
Berlin, Deo. 23. The spy mania In
France hat stirnj German feeling to
the boiling point The trial of Drey-
fun, the expulsion of von Casael and the
sentencing of von Schoenbeck last week
have been discussed with bitterness
throughout the empire. The declare
tlon of the Trench ministers that Drey
fus had no relations with the German
embassy are regarded as unsatisfactory
In the face of the repeated assertion
of the French press that the sole docu
merit on whlcthhe was convicted was
stolen from the embassy. The Parle
journals Insinuate also that Count
Muenster tried to Induce the French
government to drop the prosecution, al
though this is a palpable falsehood.
The charges against von Cassel rest
ed solely upon his association with vdn
Schoenbeck, and the case against von
Sohoenbeck rested solely upon a map
with outlines resembling a plan of
French fortresses. The copious dis
patches from Paris on the three cases
have been read here with such avidity
aa has not been evident for years. The
few trustworthy accounts of events in
Paris show fully that French suspicion
and hatred of Germany are again at the
Old Famine Attend the lieceptiona to
Prlnoe von Hohen'ohe.
Berlin, Dec. 23. Since entering Stras
bourg as governor Prince von Hohenlo-
he Langenburg has been in a maze of
dinners, balls and receptions. Some of
his receptions have been attended by
old Alsatian families who before had
held aloof from the German officials.
The emperor's example in buying
Chateau Urvtlle has done much toward
Germanizing the reichsland. Now,
whenever an old French family offers
property in Alsace or Lorraine for sale
a wealthy German turns up with the
purchase money.' Within a few years
score of fine estates in the neighbor
hood of Urville and Metz have been sold
to Germans by irreconcialiable protest
ers who wished- to move to France,
The new governor has bought a fine
hunting estate near Seabern.
Consternation .Among M annfactnrers
Trenton, N. J., Dec. 28. The decision
recently rendered by the United States
supreme court affirming the constitu
tionality of the Massachusetts law re
garding the sale of oleomargarine, In
which it is held that "substitutes de
signed to look like butter are deceptive
and ' fraudulent, ,: and the states may
exclude them without encroaching on
the rights of congress to regulate inter
state commerce," has thrown consterna
tion into the ranks of dealers in oieo
margarine in the states which by statute
prohibit the manufacture and sale of
this counterfeit product.
They are now practically barred from
continuing a business which has of late
years grown to large proportions and in
whioh large ' sums are invested. By
the decision alluded to the large dealers
in this article are driven out of business
in the prohibitory states and owing to
the fact that the New Jersey law under
certain conditions does not prohibit the
manufacture and sale of oleomargarine
they have selected this state as the
basis of operations and have recently
been dumping large quantites of the
stuff In Jersey City and other localities.
In so doing, however, they have not
been particular enough to observe in
all respects the law of the atate re
garding the branding of packages, and
this and other violations of the law are
now receiving the attention of the state
dairy commissioners. ,
Commissioner McGuire proposes that
the laws shall be strictly enforced and
has given special instructions to his
deputies, with the result that several
violations have already been detected
and complaint made. The most import
ant complaint is the one against Amon
& Person of Jersey City, 'who are the
eastern selling agents ef most of the
last western makers, and handle large
quantities or oleomargarine.

Forefathers' Day Berries.
Judge Simeon E. Baldwin spoke at the
Forefathers' day service in Howard ave
nue Congregational church last evening.
In his address he said In part that the
interest which the church of Rome has
always taken in foreign missions, rests
on the principle that only by baptism
a child becomes a Christian, yet an
English bishop .but a short, 'time ago
refused to induct a priest for he declined
to efflrm entirely to this. Calvin' held
that people outside the church' not
baptised and not excommunicated were
worthily or unworthily members of the
church. Though four hundred, years
ago there was corruption In the Romish
church there were plenty of true and
noble men there, too." -; ' - .
The' Pilgrim Fathers were' actuated
by the purpose of making religion more
of reality than form. The experience of
mankind teaches us the constant ten
dency hi every kind of religious "asso
ciation to adhere to principles, .views
and propositions that have come down
from former times and have no place In
our times.

three and a half years of age, who)
was lying in an old soap box In a dark)

Rev. Dr. Munger.
Rev. Dr. DeForrest in his ad
dress last evening spoke of the peopja
of Japan as he found them. He said
that until the present war the peopii
had been much misrepresented. Tha
only knowledge which the world all
large had was from travelers tha
greater part of whom were prejudiced
and who judged the nation entirely)
by the few with whom, they came in
contact. Many went there who from
the very moment they started to. tha
place were unfavorably biased and
Who would not see the good things
of the people, but were always pryingj
for the bad points.
The people are a patriotic people, at
moral peoplte, .'a gteneroiis people, ai
kind and loving people, a polite and
considerate people and a people ready;
to accept that which Is good and eradi
cate that which is bad.
Dr. DeForrest is a graduate of Tala

for three years pastor in Mt. CarmeJ
