Says That Sergeant C'owlos' Theory of the
Burglary Is Not True.
The assertions in the article which
appeared in yesterday afternoon's Lead
er In regard to the burglary In Solo
mon Pry's store on Church street, are
denied by Mr. Harry Fry, the nephew
of Solomon Fry, the proprietor. He
says that the statement he made to the
police concerning the robbery of the
opera glasses and watches from the
store was correct. He claims that the
thief secreted himself in the store and
escaped with the stolen property after
the store had been closed for the night.
Mr. Fry states that he is still in
the employ of his uncle, and that Mr.
Marks, a partner In the store, as well
as his uncle, Mr. Solomon Fry, do not
believe the theory of the robbery ad
vanced by Sergeant Cpwles. They say
that the diamonds and money drawer
were in a dark oorner where a burglat
that was in a hurry and doing rapid
work would not be apt to notice them.

But the Parasite Cannot Kill the Pests Fast
Bnouirh. Y'
, Librarian Homer F. 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

He Refuses a Bonus of S12.00O For His
Recent Purchase.
Manager Poll of the Wonderland
theater had another offer yesterday for
the property he has purchased on
Church street and George street for a
theater and hotel 6ite. ,
The offer, it is said, came from Mc
Mahon & Wrenn of Bridgeport, who
had already made one bid for the prop
erty. Yesterday the Bridgeport men
raised the offer to $92,000, an advance
of $4,000 over the first bid, and $12,000
more than Mr. Poli paid for the site.
Mr. Poli refused to consider it. He
said yesterday even if he ehoultf sell
he would stipulate in the deed that the
property should not be used for theatri
cal purposes.

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.
"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
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
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.

Good Work at the Nets Yesterday Match
Boston, July 26. The final match at
the Longwood club tournament was a
tions went, and this time the experts
were right for Fred Hovey played in
the same grand form which he has
shown all the week and defeated the
young interscholastic player, M. D.
Whitman, three straight sets. Hovey
had met and defeated such strong play
ers as G. Winthrop Lee, James Terry
of Yale, and Champion Wreen, while
Whitman had won over J. P. Paret of
New York, and Leo Ware, the inter
scholastic champion. Mr. Ware acted
as scorer of the match. The first set
Whitman appeared very nervous and
Hovey placed all around him, cross
court and down the side lines at will.
The sets by points was:
First set Hovey 4, 4, 4, 4, 6, 426
points, 6 games. Whitman 2, 0, 0, 2, 4,
2 10 points, no games.
In the second set the Interscholastic
man, although evidently outclassed,
played some very pretty back-hand
ground strokes, low over the net, not
ably in the fifth game. Hovey, how
ever, had no difficulty in taking the
Second set Hovey 4, 4, 1, 4, 8, 8,"
4, 538 points, 6 games. Whitman 0,
2, 4, 1, 10 6 2, 328 points, 2 gam.es.
The third set Hovey won hands down
by great work at the net and fine cross
court strokes that completely deceived
Third set Hovey 4, 4, 5, 2, 4, 4. 4,
27 points, 6 games. Whitman 2, 2, 3,
4, 1 0, 113 points, 1 game.
The result of this match entitles
Hovey to meet W. A. Laarned, the
defender of the Longwood bowl. If
Hovey . wins the match he will be en
titled to the possesion of. the cup, as
the latter already'has his name on it
twice. . "

her tnder was taken In tow aod start-
ea tor jnw Roohellu, wnere she will lla

Tendency of Collections is Toward Greater
s Ease. ..'.-.
New York, June 26. Bradstreets to
morrow will say: The most striking fea
tures of the week are the Influences oj
Improved crop prospects and the con
tinued demands for iron and steel, with!
one of the largest makers in the mar
ket as a buyer' of Bessemer pig. Most!
of the commercial and Industrial fea
tures of the preceding week are retain
ed. The . volume of trade has not variedi
materially, tout In instances Is larger
than at a corresponding period last
year. Trade in almost all lines is fairly ,
active for the season, and the general"
tendency of mercantile ' collections '.a
toward greater ease. Commercial trav
elers are being sent out in all leading
lines, and reports from those now on tha
road appear to meet expectations. To
tal bank clearings in the United States 1
this week amount to $927,000,000, a de
crease of about 10 per cent, from the'
week 'before, but an increase of fully
20 per cent, as compared with the week
in July, 1894. Contrasted with the cor-i
responding total in 1893 this week's gala .
is 4 per cent., but as' compared with the 1
last-week in July, -1832, the falling oft if. '
6 per cent; The price record this week
Is rather more pronounced in showing
the Strength of . the upward, tendency)
than last week or the week before. '
Among the more important staples
lard alone is reported lower. ? Among
the long list of staples for which prices
are unchanged are wool, cotton, com, ;
sugar, pork, flour, brown and bleached
cottons and copper. More conspicuous
advances are found to wheat, Besemer ,
pig iron and 'steel billets. There weref
also advances in quotations for leather,
oats, coffee, print cloths and In galva-,
nlzed and 'black sheets. Among large
cities no striking changes in trade ara
reported, with the exception of an im
provement in industrial lines and in tha
lake trade at Buffalo. Pittsburg fur
naces are sold months ahead. Central
western cities, among them Cleveland,':
Detroit, Cincinnati and Louisville, re
pert the usual volume of midsummer?
business. Iron and steel industries ara
refusing orders except at full prices. (
A fair business is reported from Kansas
City, and rains throughout Kansas are
expected to improve demand In the near
future. Excellent crop prospects in Ne
braska have resulted in more activity
at Omaha, where trade In some lines 13
in excess of that of 1894 At northwest
ern cities Milwaukee, Duluth, Minne
apolis; Sti Paul and Sioux Fallsthera
is the customary volume of midsummer
business, with prospects of a greatly!
improved fall trade. Lake traffic his
increased, the flour and lumber Indus
tries are more active and Jobbers In
general lines anticipate an early Jn
crease in demand for staples. '
The feature of the week at the gouthi
is in the rather more satisfacotry report
from Memphis, Chattanooga, August
and Galveston, where orders have been,
received in some instances in excess of
expectation, and the volume of business
is larger than at the corresponding per
riod last year. At such points as
Charleston, Savannah and Neyr Orleans
no -material change is reported as com
pared with a week ago, and the like is
true at Birmingham. Atlanta reports
rather less doing In dry goods, notions
and groceries, but that the outlook for
trade this fall is good. The volume ol
business has fallen off at Jacksonville.
The most disturbing influence in Loui
siana is the withholding of payment
of the sugar bounty. f
Most conservative reports on the Pa
ciiflc come from Portland, where tha
condition of trade is "fair. San Francis
co ranks next with a generally improv
ing condition of business. t
Seattle announces damage to the
wheat crop In Washington, and that
not all the hop crop there will be pick
ed because of the low prices probably
not over 20,000 bales. Business is more
active at Tacoma, where importations
of tea are good.
The nunvber of business failures this
week Is 237, against 237 In the week a,
year ago. ' '
The seasonable trade reported char
acterizes the condition of trade at Mon
treal, where less uneasiness Is now fell
over the possible consequenoes of the
bank embarrassment there. Th prov
ince of Quehec is suffering from grass
hoppers and needs rain. At Toronto
business remains quiet. In Nova Scotia
trade is rather lighter than usual at this
season. Advices from Labrador aro
that the fishing season will be a pros
perous one. The New Brunswick hay
crop is light. The number of failures
in the Canadian dominion this week is
twenty-five, against thirty-two In tha
week a year ago.
