Bagsett of the Bronson library of Waterbury, who is something of an entomologist, has ad vised the Waterbury authorities that the application of remedies to exter minate the elm tree beetle is unneces sary, as that every pest of this kind is destroyed eventually by some para site furnished by nature. . Superintendent of Parks Kelly, said yesterday afternoon that this-wa3 only true in part. Already large black ants are killing oft the beetles. Mr. Kelly has noticed this and so has Congress man Sperry. Mr. Sperry was examin ing an elm tree in Orange street Thursday, when to . his surprise he noticed a small army of big black ants going up an elm. He watched to see them return and finally discovered that they came down the other side of the trunk, each one with one of the elm tree pests, Mr. Kelly asked Professor Jenkins of the Agricultural Experiment station about the matter yesterday and learned that the big black ant would kill the beetles. But the trouble is, according to Professor Jenkins, that there are not enough ants to exterminate the pests. The ants, however, are co-operating with the park department. Mr. Bassett Is attributed by the Wa terbury papers with saying that the preparations in use will hurt the trees, but ProfessorJenkins says this is not so. TO BOTOX POINT.

MATTHEWS CALLED DOWN CALLED TO ACCOUNT FOR INSINU ATION AGAINST CITY FATHERS. Alderman Ke.res Hauls Him Up Short and lie Withdraws Ilia OIYonsive Language Regarding Free Pauses Public Morgue in the Rear of Police Headquarters. Alderman Henry F. Keyes, chairman of the committee on retrenchment and -reform, called down L. J. Matthews at the committee's meeting last even ing. The committee had under consid eration the petition of Mr. Matthews urging that the street railway com panies be required to sprinkle the streets along their lines at least three times a day. The matter has already been provided for by an act of the gen eral assembly, but Mr. Matthews' peti tion came to the committee in the regular order and gave it a hearing. Mr. Matthews' appeal closed as fol lows: "For God's sake, gentlemen, free passes or no free passes., do your duty by the people and get ready to go back for another term, and for which favor the public will appreciate." After Mr. Matthews had spoken a short time in favor of street sprinkling by the street railway companies, Mr. Keyes interrupted him with this ques tion: "What do you mean, Mr. Matthews, by free passes or no free passes?" "I used those words," said Mr. Mat thews hesitating, and then Mr. Keyes fired this question at him: "Did you intend to convey the Idea that the court of common council was influenced by free passes?" "Not at all," replied Mr. Matthews. Then he tried to explain by saying that it looked as though influence was used, which did not satisfy the chair man. "It seems to me," said Mr. Keyes vehemently, "to mean a direct Insinua tion that the common council is Influ enced." "Persons can express themselves with out making a direct charge," paid Mr. Matthews. "It is not a charge, but an insinua tion," Insisted Mr. Keyes. "I have not made any charge," re torted Mr. Matthews. "Then you didn't intend to convey that idea?" asked the alderman. "No," responded Mr. Matthews. "Peo ple have thoughts." "Then you mean to Insinuate that the common council accepted passes?" persisted Mr. Keyes. "No. I don't know that any member ever had a pass," replied Mr. Matthews. Continuing he said what he had writ ten in the last paragraph of his peti tion meant nothing. - "Do you write things that mean noth ing?" inquired the chairman. "Sometimes," admitted Mr. Matthews. "Then the committee had better not consider this petition further," said the alderman. Mr. Matthews said other portions of his petition meant something and thfc colloquy ended by Mr. Matthews with drawing the offensive expression. . Genera l Manager Dodge said he would not have appeared before the commit tee but for the expressions used in M,r. Matthews' petition. He came before the committee, he said, to resent the base insinuation made by Mr. Matthews against the New Haven Street Railway company, because he knew that ' the company would not be guilty of so mean and lowly a thing as to offer to a member of the common council or board of aldermen a pass that costs a nickel.' There is no member of the common council or board of aldermen that has to-day or has ever had a pass over the New Haven Street Rail way company's lines. Mr Matthews said he knew of no pass His expression, "free pass or no free passes," he said, came in the nat ural way of thinking. Then he went on to discuss five cent fares, comparing distances in this city with distances in New York, until the chairman interrupted him1 with the in junction that the petition had nothing to do with fares. ' Mr. Dodge said there was a ten mile ride on his road from Westvllle to Lighthouse Point for ten cents. Lawyer George A. Watrous, repre senting the Fair Haven and Westville road, said the pass question having been pretty thoroughly disposed of he Would not go into that. Regarding street sprinkling he said the legislature had provided for that, and he did not believe that should the court of com mon council adopt an ordinance to com pel the street railway companies to bear the expense of sprinkling the streets, it would be valid. He said the Fair Haven road was willing to meet the city and divide the expense of sprinkling the streets through which the lines run, on a fair basis. He thought that neither the committee nor the board of public works should meet his company an arrangement could be made by which the city water the streets and the company pay Its share of the expense, or the company to water the streets and the city bear its share of the expense. S. R. Hull, superintendent of the Dix well avenue line, said his company was willing to meet the city not half way, he said, but it was willing to share in the expense. Mr. Matthews held that if the city furnished the water It did its share of the work. Then Mr. Watrous and Mr. Dodge dis cussed various methods adopted by other cities, in some of which the rail way companies take the contract for watering the streets. The hearing then closed. x The committee In executive session gave the petitioners leave to with draw. While in executive session Mayor Hendrick advocated the proposed pub lic morgue. He presented the corre spondence he had with twenty-five cities relating to morgues. All the cities in question had a population un der 200,000. Of the twenty-fle only two have a public morgue Providence and Minneapolis. In three, Rochester, New York and Alleghany City, there are morgues sup ported by the county. In Kansas City, Lowell, Fall River, Syraouse, Omaha, Reading and Bridgeport there is a sen timent in favor of a morgue.Charleston, Scranton, Troy, Albany, Cambridge, Indianapolis, Worcester, Dayton, O., At lanta, Evansvllle and Hartford do not favor morgue. The committee after hearing the mayor voted to acquire land belonging to McDonald & Ransom in the rear of polio headquarters' at a fair price to be settled by arbitration. It is the in tention to remove the police barn back and to locate the morgue on the pres ent site of the barn.
