This afternoon the fig was run up the pole in front of Brigadier General Haven's tet at his quarters, ad Camp Coffin was officially declared open.

The weather cleared up this afternoon and the temperature was at the point that made it exceedingly uncomfortable for the men In camp. , Especially at drill the men suffered from the heat. There were few cases of sickness In the hospital. A member of company C, of the First regiment, was received at the hospital this afternoon. While coming to camp on the train this morning a bottle of soda water exploded in his hand and lacerated the member badly.

A new plan of inspecting the food, which was adopted by Gen eral Peck, was put Into effect to-day and worked successfully. The plan is to station a quartermasters' sergeant of each company at the mess house and in the kitchens and watch the food as It is served. If the quality is considered good or bad a note Is made of it and a report made to the commissary de partment. There has, however, been no occasion for making a report against the food served to-day and the men were well pleased.

Drew, of Tihlrd regi ment. Frank Goelin, Frank McMahon.John Prince. IN THE RAIN. . The opening of camp to-day was de cldedly unpleasant, and the fact that It was not at all unusual did not make the boys feel any better. The tents were completely soaked and the ground was full of puddles and sloppy as could be. The storm which passed over the ren dezvous last night was one of the most severe that has been experienced in years. Rain fell In torrents and the almost continuous play of lightning followed by the terrible peals of thun der which followed eaoh other In rapid succession made the night anything but a delightful one to experience. It Is a notlcable fact that during nearly each encampment since the establish ment of the rendezvous a severe storm has been experienced. The first to arrive was the Guilford Battery, which reached the camp ground at 9:15, and closely following came the First Regiment of Hartford then the Second Regiment, then the Third from New London, and finally the Fourth Regiment, the separate companies following aftfer. By noon all were In quarters, -the rain storms Interfering but little with the work of settling, which continued from the first arrival until noon, when it can be said Camp Coffin was ready for work. THE BLUES' SQUAD. The ten members of Company D, who left New Haven at 2 o'clock Saturday to march into camp, were standing be side the railroad track this side of the Connecticut river when the militia trains passed this morning. They cheered as the trains passed and seem ed to be in good spirits. They ar rived in camp at 12:30 o'clock this after noon. They bivouacked at Saybrook Junction last night and left there at 8 o'clock this morning. Not a man was sick nor did a man drop out of the march. They arrived covered with mud and glory and received an enthu siastic greeting. Upon their arrival they reported in a body to Colonel Bur pee. THE CAMP LAYOUT. There is practicaly no change from last year in the layout of camp, except the change in order of the regiment from right to left, owing to the change n the command of the Second. The regiments are arranged in the follow order from the right (west) to left (east): Fourth, First, Third, Second regiments, First and Second separate companies (colored), Machine Gun Bat tery, Battery A. By company, the reg iments are as follows from right to left: Fourth Band, E. I, K, B, F, C,' D, G. First Band, G, F, C, A, B, I, D, H, K, E. Third Band, B, D, I, A, G, C, F, E. Second Band, G, F, A, C, I, H, B, D, E, K. The color line is 1,855 feet In length and the tents with flies represent 1,500 pieces of canvas. Each company street has eighteen tents, the streets are eigh teen feet wide, the line officers' street Is thirty-three feet wide, and the field officers forty feet. The non-commis sioned staff officers are not this year relegated to the , rear, their tents are placed to the right and left of the staff officers' and on the same line. CAMP NOTES. The total number of men in camp this noon was 2,805. In past years the seacoast battery has usually been very slow about get ting to work, but Major Albee was very prompt this morning In getting the men at work and at 1:20 o'clock this af ternoon a salute was fired in honor of General Haven. The first duty, of the week was guard mount, which was held promptly at 1:30 this afternoon. Major James Sheridan, Fourth regi ment, is the officer of the, day and the officers of the day and guard are as fol lows: First regiment Old officer of the day. Captain J. C. Bailey, Company A; new officer of the day, Captain J. R. An drews, Company E; s'Rnior officer of the guard, First Lieutenant W. E. Mahoney, Company H; supernumerary officer of the guard, Second Lieutenant F. W. Chapman, Company C. Second Officer of the day, Captain W. E. Beach, D; officers of the guard, Lieutenants G. S. Wood, E, C. Smith, E. Third Officer of the day, Captain E. T. Klrkland, I; officers of the guard, Lieutenants A. D. Mclntjrre, G, E. A. Corcoran, A. . Fourth Officer of the day, Captain H. I. Terrill, I; officers of the guard, Lieu tenant J. J. Hurley, E,. H. S. Betts, D. Separate companies Officer of the day, Lieutenant D. .Tlighmart, First; acting officer of the guard, Sergeant Cannon. First Lieutenant Arthur B. Jenkins, the commandant of the first section sig nal corps, rode into camp from Hartford on his bicycle at 4:30 this afternoon. He left Hartford at 8 o'clock this morning and stopped on the road an hour for dinner by the roadside and a half hour for repairs. While coasting down a hill about six iniles from Niantic the springs of the wire saddle broke and Lieutenant Jenkins, bicycle and all, went tumbling over each other Into the ditch. He was not Injured, got up, Improvised a sad die and rode Into camp on the saddle port. Lnsurenant Jenkins came by way of Bolton. The distance Is about forty- six miles. THE NEW HAT. The new campaign hats of the brigade give militiamen an unnatural appear ance. The wisdom of adopting the mouse-colored slouch hat was fully de monstrated to-day, as It Is a first-class rain protector. The appearance of a regiment of marching militiamen attir ed in the new hat reminded one of the old war pictures. The men have not as yet adapted themselves to wearing the new hat In a uniform manner. . Some have creased tous, while the others are dented. The men still retain their caps, which will be worn at times. HOW THE LOCAL BOYS WENT OFF. The going of the National Guard to camp this morning was not by any means pleasant. The rain, however, could not be prevented and was conse quently endured. Before 6 o'clock there were soldier boys at work in the armory preparing the many little odds and ends always necessary for camp. At 7 o'clock every one was present and in readiness, and Lieutenant Colonel Callahan as sumed command. Colonel Burpee came down from Waterbury on an early train with the two Waterbury companies, The Second reigiment left on two trains, one of which left at 7:30 and another at 7:35. The Fourth regiment passed through this city on a special train at :30. A .TOLLY TROLLEY PARTY. A Ride to Woodmont and Westvllle Those Who Enjoyed It. A very jolly trolley party left the corner of Church and Chapel streets last evening about 7:45 on one of the Winchester railroad company's cars which was prettily trimmed with flags and bunting. The first run , was through to Woodmont, where the par ty partook of refreshments at William Merwin's restaurant. After a stay of an hour a run was made to Westville, returning to Church and Chapel streets, where several left, the others going to their respective homes on the line of the road. The jolly party consslsted of the following young people: The Miss as Cora Rood, Adele Evarts, Grace Foote, Jessie Shippy, Blanche Ball, Harriet and Anna Clark, Maud Rood, Grace Ball, Lucile Oulette, Anna Hag- erty.

Brooks and the con ductor, John Daws, were very cordial and obliging and deserve credit. THE CITY NEEDS MONEY MUNICIPAL IxmorEMEXTS BE. ZAXED HY DEPLETED TKEASUBY. Board of Conncllmen Tables the Project for a Police Station, and Send to a Com mittee the Scheme for Street Sprinkling and Several Disagree With the Upper Board. The meeting of the board of council- men last evening brought out only a small attendance. President Charles A. NIooll is In Niantic and Councilman Chllllngworth was nominated for chair man. . Mr. Chilllngworth declined to serve because, he said, there were mat ters to come up in which he had inter est. Councilman Pickett declined to occupy the chair for the same reason, and Councilman Gompertz nominated Councilman Ullman, who took the chair. When the matter came up providing for the purchase of a site for a police station in the Third precinct, there was opposition from Messrs. Curtis, Beau lah and Gompertz, who wanted the orders tabled for printing, and Council man Dewell of the board of finance ex plained that It was not proposed to ex pend $10,000 immediately. All the board of finance wanted to do was to buy a site for a new police station. Only $3,000 was wanted and this was to be taken from the unexpended balances. The city was now paying an extrava gant rent for station 3, the lease expir ed next spring and It was desirous to get a site and prepare plans for a building. The question being put to a vote, 11 voted for tabling for printing and 11 against. The chair voted in the affirmative, and the matter now goes to the board of aldermen, who passed the necessary orders at its last meeting. Petitions were referred to the com mittee on streets for vitrified brick pavement in Whalley avenue from Howe street to the West river bridge, on Elm street from State to Park, and In Broadway from' York to Howe. Communications from L. J. Matthews on yarlaus subjects were indefinitely postponed in concurrence. A communication of Mayor Hendrick on street paving, calling attention to the importance of first having connec tions made with alf sewers, gas and water mains, which was ordered on file by the aldermen, was on motion of Mr. Chilllngworth referred to the commit tee on streets, and the communication was ordered printed in the journal. Councilman Grinnell introduced an ordinance providing tnat the city clerk shall notify the city attorney and su perintendent of police of the passage of all ordinances. It was referred to the committee on ordinance. The chair ruled out of order a motion of Councilman McGinty to reconsider the action of the board referring the petition for vitrified brick pavement in Grand avenue where the tracks of the Fair Haven & Westvllle railroad com pany run to the company's car sheds to the committee on streets and to re fer it to the board of public works in concurrence with, the board of alder men. This he did after considerable debate on the question, and Council man Scobie appealed from the decision of the chair and the chair was not sustained. Then a vote was taken on reconsideration and it was lost ayes 8, nays 13, so as the matter stands there is disagreeing action, the upper board referring it to the board of public works and the lower board to the committee on streets. There was considerable debate on the report of the committee on streets on sidewalks that need to be reiaid. Coun cilman Pickett opposing the adoption of the report in concurrence with the board of aldermen, he said, because he though the city should first have the opinion of the corporation counsel as to whether the city could collect for a new sidewalk. Councilman Chilllngworth favored the report, but Judge Pickett's motion to table the report for the opinion of the corporation counsel was passed 13 to 9, Then street sprinkling was taken up, Councilman Pickett calling up the re- port of the special committee on that subject. The board of aldermen adopt ed the report, except the first order, appropriating $5,000 out of the unex pended balances, which was amended so as to provide for the transfer of money from the unexpended balance to the board of public works, no sum, however, being named. It developed, though, during the debate, that the amount would probably not exceed $1,- 000. . Councilman- Pickett asked that the report be taken up by division and mov ed the adoption of the order as amend ed by the board of aldermen in concur rence, and this action was taken. Then Judge Pickett criticised the committee's report, which, he said, reflected on the board of public works. and he read paragraphs in the re port including that which stated that "the effect of the delays on the part of the board of public works in sprinkling during the windy weather of March and the dry portion of April, and to force abutting property owners to con tract with and to pay Messrs. Munson and Blakeslee for sprinkling the street in front of their property." He said the other orders of the re port would run the city into debt and bind the city to do what it had not got money to do. He moved that the re- mainedr of the report be referred to the committee on ordinances with in etruotions to draft an ordinance in con formity with the act passed by the general assembly regarding street sprinkling in New Haven. Councilman Grinnell favored the adoption of the report, and so did Courcilman Chillingworth. Mr. Grin nell said no ordinance was needed; th legislative act was sufficient. He moved that the beard concur with the elder-men. This motion was lost, 10 to 11, and tha motion to refer the remainder of the report to the committee on ordinances was adopted. The board wound up the session by rejecting the order, one adopted by the board of1 aldermen, regarding the obstruction of sidewalks and danger lights when buildings were in process of erection.

Timothy Delany, a lineman employed by the Southern New England Telephone company, was killed this afternoon( on East Main street by a shock from a wire coming in contact with a wire called a "hang er," which was strung over the cur rent wire of the trolley road. Delaney was engaged in rolling up an iron wire on a reel, which was being replaced by the telephone company by a copper wire. He was perspiring, and when the iron wire fell one end dropped on the hanger. It is supposed that the insulation was not good and that the current followed the telephone wire, which Delaney was holding; and killed him. The telephone company summoned a physician, but life was extinct when the doctor arrived. Delaney had been in the employ of the Southern New England Telephone company for about five years. He first went to work for the company in An sonia, but was afterwards transferred to another division. The officials of the telephone company are making a search for his relatives. It was said that he had an uncle living on Meadow street in New Haven, but no relative of the deceased lineman can be found on that street. A. cousin of Delaney, John B'srg'n, Jr., was found in this city to-night. He lives at 35 St. John street. Delaney has an uncle, a Roman Catholic priest, in Pawtucket, R. I., and also relatives in New York. Her Buffering Ended, Lizzie Ehrensberger, fourteen years old, for a long time, an inmate of the Home for the Friendless, died at the general hospital last evening.
