Th new general assembly will meat In Hartford on Wednesday, January f, when Governor Coffln will ba lnaugu rated.' There will ba a general dltpori tlon among tbt members to out down the easton from ft month to all weeka, adjourning not later than tho mlddht of May. Tha houa will b In working ordar within a weak after tha Inaugura tion. ' Tha speakership contest It considered aa tattled. Samuel Feasenden of Stam ford will no doubt receive the honor of a nomination by acclamation, and will be able to appoint the committee! at th betlnnlmr of the aecond week of the taction. The chalrmanahlp of the Judiciary committee will be tne cniei bone of contention In the houte. IU li natation, by common content, carrlel with It party leaaartnip on ma now. Invariably the honor It given to a law yer. Speaker Fettenden will have an unusual number of lawyers to pick from, not only for the Judiciary, but alto for other prominent and Influential committeeship!. An important In tercet that will come up at the next session will be secret ballot reform. The preaent statute pro viding for a secret ballot was adopted In 1889. The legislature of 1893 made no attempt to change the law. The Imper fections of the statute under which the deadlock session of 1891 waa brought about were not even removed. There are featurea of the law that could be wiped out without lose, and Improve ments that are necessary. The print ing of the tlckete by letters other than uniform, to that the candidate's name may appear in lta customary form, should be allowed. The decision of the Btyle and form of letter, however, would be safely left, as now,. In the hands of the secretary of state. ' There bat been a world of confusion over the present method of using but one form of letter in printing the tlck eta But the chief trouble with the law has come from the distribution of offi cial envelopes at the polls. They are now given out from the envelope booths, but there Is no possible opportunity for determining the hour of their Issue. The number of official envelopes that have been Illegally secured Is, no doubt, considerable throughout the state. The reform that will be asked In this direc tion will be the stamping of the hour of issue of all envelopes distributed from the booth by the envelope tend ers. The ballot-box tenders will be re quired to note the hour at which the envelope was issued, and oall the voter to account If there Is any marked dis crepancy between the time of receiving the envelope and the moment of Its de posit with the ballot-box tender. This would cut off the possibility of secur ing official envelopes for fraudulent purpose ' " A strong and united effort by the Jew elers of the tJnlted States Is being put forth to obtain legislation to provide for the stamping of silver manufactures as a means of protection to the public and to prevent glaring frauds upon "buyers which are consequent upon the absence of a law upon the subject. In this state the Jewelers' association re cently formed has taken Immediate and decided action In the matter and the incoming legislature will be asked to pass a law on the subject for the pro tection of the public and In the inter . est of honest dealing. The Jewelers' Circular in Its last issue reports that action on this subject has thus far been taken in two states requiring the stamp. lng of silver goods and that" action which will no doubt be favorable will soon be taken In nine other states, with more to be heard from, and the pre sumption is that all the states will fall In line In the matter. General George H. Ford of this city, who is president of the Connecticut Jewelers' association, says that the association will, at its next meeting, act upon a proposed bill for an amendment to the Connecticut law on the subject The proposed amendment provides for an alteration of section 3 of an act so that it shall read $600 instead of $300, and imprison ment, and one-half of the line to go to the Informer. General Ford has the pe tition in charge and has already obtain ed many signatures thereto. Mr. F. L. Tlbbals," secretary and treasurer of the George H. Ford company, who is a member of the Incoming legislature, Is to present the bill to the legislature for Its action in behalf of the Jewelers of Connecticut General Ford, In his address at the formation of the Connec ticut Jewelers' association, In his open' lng address, in speaking of the evils which it It desired to correct, called at tention to the fact that of no class in the community should honor and integ rity be expected more than, from the banker and the Jeweler. "And yet," he said, "I will venture to say that there Is no lifie of mercantile business that has so much deteriorated from the Standard It should occupy as that of the Jeweler." Proceeding, General Ford said that the country was flooded with goods misrepresented as sterling silver, and with watches of most Inferior char acter, all of which were palmed off on the public as superior goods. Here was where a law on the subject would be of Immense value to, the public. He In stanced tne case Of a friend whose wife, while at the world's fair at Chicago. bought what was' represented 'to her to be a solid silver souvenir spoon, yet In less than a year it was found to be only plated and. made of1 soft metal Yet the spoon was stamped as sterling , silver and sold for sterling silver. -Gen eral Ford also Instanced cases where manufactured goods issued in large quantites were stamped As sterling.yet were base Imitations, and thousands of innocent buyers were thereby deceived and Imposed upon, and honest dealers In honest' goods could not compete. Thousands upon thousands of articles purporting to be silver and stamped as such Were being sold all over the United States, which were jbase Imitations. Therefore it was plainly absolutely necessary in' the protection of honest pealing and in the protection of the publlo that such a law as tha one In view ehduld ba enacted. Tha need of such a law was apparent to everyone. Oeneral Ford further tald that In no other country that ba had visited wer the, people allowed o ba Imposed upon and defrauded In this matter. "In Eng land, an article stamped sterling Im plied an article or silver 92S-1000 pure." Tha ' speaker added further: "In FtaRoe,' an article not genuine, mutt by the) law of tht land be atamped 'Imi tation' In England, Franca and Ger many the quality stamped upon an arti cle of gold or tllver must not be. lent in grade than tha stamp it heart, and the penalty attached to a violation of the law It to large, and it la en tor tied so strictly, that 'records of Itt violation are almott unknown. -Purchasers In those countries of thlt clan of goods are protected agalnat fraud and decep tion by the government Itself. Yet this protection wat not brought about until the people had been to grossly Imposed upon that an Irrepressible cry for re form arose. According to the records In Europe, in the fourteenth century, ow ing to tha great frauds committed, a great move was made throughout Eu rope for this reform. Gold of an In ferior quality had been substituted for genuine, articles made of latten were gilded and palmed off for gold; pew ter wat silvered and told for genuine metal. Then a grand popular demand for reform came, and was triumphant" PERSONAL joTtirros. Interesting to New Haven Peopla A Not able Trip to the Old World.

C. church will be opened to morrow, Christmas, with three masses, alt of which will be said by Father Fowler. Christmas day it tha only day on which a priest can tay three mattes. On thlt day Father Fowler will tay all of hit In tha chapel, beginning at 1 o'clock. At t o'clock he will ting a high mass. The chapel It now complete.and If It were not for a few little trifling mattera would have bean ready yetter day. To-morrow, however, will be a more fitting occasion for thlt first ser vice. 1 . , Tha chapel will be a most convenient one, and will greatly add to the neigh borhood. There are a very large num ber of Catholic families In :hlt neigh borhood who are to far from 8t Mary's church that It hat been difficult for them to be prompt In attendance. The chapel will embrace all that part of the parish north of Humphrey street and east of Whitney avenue. It will be a great comfort to many people who are becoming feeble and who find the dis tance to St. Mary's church too great to be traveled every Sunday. The church requires attendance. If possible, every Sunday at mass. There will be one mass each Sunday and perhaps more. This, however, hat not been decided upon, and will not be until after the visit of the provincial, Rev. Dr. Hlgglns, formerly pastor of the church. Dr. Hlg glns will decide on the number of priests who are to be left at St. Mary's, and will also suggest to Father Lilly many things in regard to the chapel. ' The chapel has been very prettily fin' tshed and without ostentation or un necessary fixing. Mr. Joseph Miller will have charge of the building. . Prof. Joseph D. Rice, or ganist at St. Mary's churoh, will con duct the singing service at the high mass in the chapel to-morrow. He has kindly -volunteered to do this in add! tion to presiding at the large organ in the church at 5:30 and 10 o'clock masses and at the vespers. He will be assisted by some members of the St Mary's choir and others. At St. Mary's church there will be a special service forTjhrlstmas. There will be a solemn high mass at 6:30 o'clock in the morning and another at 10. The Christmas vespers will also be very beautiful. The Philharmonic orchestra will assist at the high mass Just before noon. The following Is the musical program for the three services which has been prepared by Prof. J. D. Plunkett. . 5 a, m.
