"Though not generally known," It says, "Governor Morrill Is now at the summer residence of Thomas B. Reed, in northern New York, where he is visiting the Maine statesman.

At Philadelphia Philadelphia de feated New York in the most exciting game played here this season. The numerous exceptions taken to Umpire Burnham's decisions by both teams were more of a feature than were any of the plays made. The objections on the part of the visitors culminated in the fourth inning in the umpire's or dering Doyle from the grounds. In the seventh inning Reilly did not come -within fifteen feet of touching third and scored, but Burnham's back was turned and he allowed the run. The game was a loose exhibition. Smith pitched well for the home club until the sixth. Carsey was the substitute, and the visitors could not again tally. Delahanty and Tiernan made home runs.

MISS VAUGHN WANTS A LICENSE. Health Board Appoints a Committee to Investigate Her Maternity Hospital. Miss Gertrude A. Vaughn applied to the board of health at its meeting yes terday afternoon for a license to keep a maternity hospital at 45 Stevens street. This application was made under an act passed by the general assembly, which provides that no person shall keep a maternity hospital or lying-in place unless such person has previously obtained a license issued by the mayor, board of health of the city, or health officer of the town. The act provides that within six hours after the departure, removal, or with drawal of any child born at a mater nity hospital, the keeper shall make a record of it, and the names and resi dences of the persons who took the child, and whatever disposition o such child or Its body is made, and the place to which it Is taken and left, such rec ord to be produced by the keeper of such hospital for inspection by and up on the demand of any person authorized so to do. The act provides that the person au thorized to inspect a maternity hospi tal may remove any article which he thinks presents evidence of any crime being committed therein and deliver It to the coroner. Violation of the act is punishable by a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $500, or Imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. Miss Vaughn was present and In re ply to questions by Dr. Flelshner said she was not a midwiSe. She was only a nurse. 1 Mayor Hendrlck excused 'her, and when the matter came up again Dr. Flelschner said he thought such an In stitution if conducted legitimately, was a good thing in a community. If, how ever, such a place was used for criminal purposes, it was a criminal business and should not be licensed. Miss Vaughn had had a good deal of unen viable notoriety, and though he had no doubt that she would get a license, he thought it well to appoint a committee to investigate Miss Vaughn's place and as to whether she was a suitable person to have a license, and report at the next meeting. This action was taken and the mayor appointed Dr. Flelschner and Health Officer Wright a committee. The Empire Laundry company was notified to abate the nuisance caused by smoke at its laundry in Edgewood avenue within six days. - Regarding the nuisance caused by smoke from the new round 'house of the Consolidated road at the Cedars no action was taken, a communication having been received from the railroad company that it would abate the nui sance as soon as possible. The board Instructed the city attor ney to bring prosecution in the case of the Costello property in the rear of the Forsyth laundry. There Is a big hole there and a petition signed by 108 rest dents of State and Mechanic streets some time ago was presented to the board asking that the nuisance be abat ed. Thirty days' notice was given and the hole has not been filled, so the matter was referred to the city attor ney. 1 he Coming Big Barbecne. The annual barbecue of the New Ha ven Retail Butchers' association will be held at Schuetzen park on Thursday, August 22, and gives promise of being the most successful one that has ever been held by the association. MORE ABOUT PAVEMENTS HEARING AS TO THE MATERIALS TO BE USED. A Good Deal of Talk Before the Committee on Streets About Sheet and Block Asphalt, Vitrified Uriok and Belgian Pavements. The committee on streets moved up another peg last night In the matter of street pavements, taking up the re port of the chamber of commerce. The chamber's recommendation regarding the Issuance of bonds to the amount of $500,000 having been disposed of by a legislative act, and the bonds being ready for the market, the committee had for consideration last evening the question as to what kind of material shall be used. The full committee was present, with Alderman Hamilton In the chair. Joel A. Sperry, a member of the com mittee of the chamber of commerce, that made the report, said experience led him to believe that block pavement was the best pavement. The pave ment he had seen that gave the best results was the block pavement of four inch blocks laid on an asphalt founda tion. This pavement, he said, could be taken up and relald, and have the street In as good condition as original ly. As for asphalt pavement, he said It was very good for the people on the street. It was a quiet pavement. Asked by Alderman Hamilton if he had seen any vitrified brick pavement, he referred to the pavement in York street, and admitted that it showed very little wear. Regarding asphalt pavement he said his experience showed that It needed a good deal of repair. He said that if the city was going to lay asphalt pave ment it would be ,a good plan to regu late the width of wagon tires. The nar row tires in use here tear the pave ment. In Paris, where there was as phalt pavement wide tires were re quired, and In London and Liverpool the tires were wider than In use here. He had seen the Buffalo pavement, and his Idea was that the asphalt pavement there had to be repaired In five years. He did not think it was a desirable pavement. William S. Wells favored asphalt pavement for residential streets. PoJice Commissioner Doolittle told the committee he thought for heavy teaming the dimension blocks, with concrete foundation and well grouted, the best. Vitrified brick made a good pavement for light travel and asphalt was good for residential streets. At this point Judge Sheldon brought up the vitrified brick pavement In York street, laid of Syracuse, Great Barrlngton and North j Haven brick, and City Engineer Kelly said this pavement had given satisfaction.; He was favorable to the brick pavement, which, he said, in reply to Councilman Ullman, was not in its experimental stage. He said regarding brick chip ping, that the chipping the first two years was greater than the years that follow. He was not In favor of filling brick pavement with cement, because with cement the pavement became solid and when It is taken up it is difficult to same the brick. With sand It was an easy matter to take up the brick pavement. Asked if he would lay as phalt at State and Chapel streets he said no. At any point where there are a number of street car tracks he would lay vitrified brick. Asked by Councilman Chlllingworth regarding asphalt an brick pavements Mr. Kelly said It required extra labor to put down asphalt, while brick could be laid by labor procurable in this city. Mr. Kelly said the pavement In York street cost from $1.90 to $2, and the brick pavement in Ashmun street $2.13 a square yard. Discussing brick and asphalt pave ment with the committee Mr. Kelly said from a sanitary point the apphalt was the better. Further on, he said. It would cost more to maintain the as phalt that brick pavement. Pressed by Councilman Chlllingworth regarding the comparative cost of the two pavements, Mr. Kelly said it was his opinion that asphalt pavement could be laid for $2.50. The price now was $3, but he thought the asphalt people would have to come down on their price. He believed they made 1$ a square yard on the work. i Ex-Counllman Smith, who was for merly a member of the street commit tee, said that one pavement might be good for one city and not good for an other. He said if New Haven had put down brick pavement in Chapel street from State to Orange, an as phalt pavement from Orange to Church and a block pavement to Temple, then there would have been a chance for comparison. E. J. Morrison, a representative of the Hastings company, spoke in favor of asphalt block pavement. The ingre dients were 80 per cent of trap brick, 7 per cent, of pulverized carbonate of lime and 13 per cent. Trinidad asphalt. Improvements had been made in as phalt blocks by the substitution of trap rock for lime stone. He estimated the cost of his pavement on a sand foun dation at $2.65. On a six inch con crete foundation, as in Hartford, the cost would be $2.90. He did not think more than a four Inch concrete founda tion was necessary. Questioned by Councilman Chilllngworth, he said his company delivered the blocks to the city of Holyoke and the city put down its own pavement. He saw no reason why New Haven could not secure the blocks in the same way. The Hastings company's works are on the Hudson river and the freight charges would not be heavy. Mr. Morrison promised to notify the committee as to the price for delivering the blocks at the dock in this city. Frank C. Bushnell, of the chamber of commerce, said he was In favor of sheet asphalt in every street In the city, ex cept possibly Borne that are too steep for this kind of pavement. He did not gree with Mr. Sperry that sheet as phalt was damaged by heavy truck ing. He said we did not want to go to London or Paris or Liverpool for ex perience. Mr. Bushnell wanted to go nearer home. He asked Mr. Morrison how he made out that asphalt block was not as slippery as sheet asphalt, and Mr. Morrison said because of the trap rock In It. Having elicited this Mr. Bushnell told the committee that sheet asphalt contained about 75 per cent of sand, and he held that sand was not as slippery as trap rock. Mr. Bushnell said New York was lay ing sheet asphalt and' had Just award ed a contract of $305,000 at $3.22 a yard. "Now that's what New York has done," said Mr. Bushnell with vehem ence. 'They had a pull probably to get that," said Councilman Chlllingworth, "I don't know about that," said Mr. Bushnell. S. A. W. Dodge, general manager of the New Haven Street railway com pany objected to the six inch concrete foundation on the ground of expense. He said the railroad company had to pick up its Joints, whlcl necessitated taking up the tracks. He said the rail road company wanted a good pave ment, but it wanted one that could be easily taken up and put down. The railroad company could not afford to get experts to do the work. Mr. Bushnell said that was Just the trouble. The railroad company want. ed to take up the pavement and put it down as It pleased- Mr. Bushnell lntirr-tes. In a left- handed way," replied Mr. Dodge, " that the New Haven Street Kailway com pany, when it takes up a pavement does a slouchy Job. That is not true. I challenge anybody to show when' and where the New Haven Street Railway company had done a slouchy job." Mr. Bushnell retorted that it had done so and added: 'I want to make a statement, not left- handed, but plutn'b In the face. The New Haven Street Railway company and the Fair Haven Railroad company, barring West Chapel street, never left the street in the condition it found It when It began repatrs." T want to say," said Mr. Dodge, "that when he makes that statement he makes a statement thajt is not a fact, and Mr. Bushnell catinot prove It." Mr. Bushnell said he could, and Mr. Dodge said he couldn't and the matter was dropped. Road Commissioner Johnson depre cated the fact that the board of public works was short of money and said that the present plan of paving street under the legislative act meant that in five years the city would 'have to take up the work again. He held that it would cost more to maintain the proposed street with either brick or asphalt pave ment than it would to do It probably with crushed stone. The committe will meet Monday eve ning to give a hearing regarding West Chapfl and Ashmun streets: Belmont Gets Henry of Navarre. Saratoga, Aug. 13. Henry "of Navarre, the "best four-year-old thoroughbred in the' United States, and Dorian, one of the best handicap horses In training, were to-day sold at private sale to Au gust Belmont. Mr. Belmont came from Newport to accept the bargain and got ahead of Pierre Lorillard, who wantjd Dorian. Mr. Belmont said the prise would never be divulged even to his friends. Mr. Belmont, Pierre Lorillard and others have been trying for a long time to purchase Henry of Navarre. By the terms McClelland will keep Navarro till the racing ends In this state. He will merely act as trainer, however, :dl the money won by the colt going to Mr. Belmont. Stories have been afloat that Mr. Belmont contemplated taking hi3 entire stable to England next year and that he was making all his purchases for that purpose. When asked about it he would neither deny 'nor affirm It. As Mr. Belmont has entered very liberally in stakes in England which close yearlings, color Is lent to this story. " Attacked by Bulgarians. London, Aug. 13.

ABOUT THE SOLDIER BOYS YESTERDAY HAS A SCORCHER IN CAMP, BUT DRILLS WERE KEPT UP. A New Order of Food Inspection Sham Battle Yesterday Captain Glennon Thrown From His Horse and Hurt Visitors in Camp The Signal Corps Tolly Jottings. Camp Coffin, Niantic, Aug. 13. To day the soldier boys are fairly settled In camp, and as the stopper off at Ni antic leaves the train the first sight which meets his eyes is the members of the provost guard who are station ed about the depot to intercept any whilom deserters from the stretches of white canvas which cover the field just back of the town. After a ten min utes' ride the visitor is ushered into Camp Coffin, the present rendezvous of the warlike Inclined of the Nutmeg state, and here true martial discipline is observed. As one sees the streets of canvas tents and 'hears the strains of martial music and the shouting of orders reach one's ears with the boys in blue talking of the campaign, It seems almost as if the days if '61 are back again, but as we reach the inner most recesses of the camp and hear the Jolly talk and merry Jibes, and see the peaceful air that reigns the illusion is dispelled. The day opened with a most dense fog.the densest.so says the historian of the Grays, that he has seen in his nine years of camp duty. But the atmospher ic phenomena play no part in the routine of camp duty, and after the regular morning exercises A SHAM BATTLE was the feature of the afternoon. Lieu tenant Colonel Cole, with the Third reg iment, went about two miles from camp to prepare an attack upon it. General Haven prepared the line of de fence, which was represented by signal corps men with flags, each flag marking the location of a company, if there be any in evidence. The manoeuvers con cluded in the afternoon by Colonel Cole projecting a clever flank movement on General Haven's left near the shore. The men generally declare it a victory for Colonel Cole, but the decision is left with Major Babcock and Captain Thompson of the United States army, detailed by the war department to be present at the Connecticut camp. OTHER MILITIA WORK, ETC. x At 11 o'clock there was the regular battalion drill. Here the military pride of Connecticut was desplayed In all Its fine feathers, and no native of this old state could view the scene without a feeling of pride. Arranged lri-their va rious positions were the several regi ments, all going through the manual of arms and togged out In spick and span military costume. ' ' At 12 o'clock came the dinner call, which was responded to with alacrity, the Second regiment going to the mess house at the extreme end of the ground where Hicks Brothers of Waterbury cater to their gastronomical, wants. After dinner was guard mount, and then on the parade ground a striking scene was presented with those off duty lying on the grass around the edge of the field looking at their less favored brethren. Among the onlookers were also many ladies, who added a pictur esque effect to the scene. Toward the east end was the detail from the Sec ond regiment, and hardly any of their New Haven friends would have recog nized the detail from the Grays con sisting of Corporal Hill and Privates Farnsworth, Baldwin, McNeal and Fox, with their soldierly tread and seeming complete knowledge of soldiers' duties. After the guard mount was the ar tillery drill, in which the various gun manoeuvers and handling was gone through with. There were also several rounds of powder fired to lend a truly warlike semblance to the scene, at lease this is the reason which pre sented Itself to the "Courier" man who was watching proceedings. Soon after the artillery drill there was a dress parade, at which nearly all those in camp, except those on guard duty, took part. At this time, about 4 o'clock, the full complement of visitors had arrived, coming from Hart ford, Waterbury, Milford, New Haven and other townB Interested in the do ings of their "sojers." A most brilliant scene was presented with the troops in full array and the various officers rid ing about the field on spirited chargers, issuing orders which were In turn re peated to the companies by the proper respective officers. The battalion drill and regimental drill are longer by one-half hour-than previous drills of this sort have been. FOOD INSPECTION. Commissary General Peck has inau gurated an entirely different system of food inspection from what has ever been in working before, and at his request General Havens has issued the follow ing general order: The commissary sergeant of each reg iment will superintend the Inspection tf each meal furnished by caterers, and company commissary sergeants will re port to him on- blanks furnished for the purpose by the commissary general af ter each meal, these reports to be for warded to Brigade Commissary General Henry L. Peck through the regular channels. A blank has been prepared by General Peck for this purpose, and an- these are named all the provisions used, with spaces at the bottom for the regular rating of every article of food, and these are rated as excellent, good, fair and poor. By this system much of the poor food furnishing is done away with, and. as one caterer remarked, "They inspect every hour." The Inspection includes a careful lookout at the cooking tent, the mess house and waiters' sen-ice. The Second regiment boys are, however, kicking against the rations, and one re marked that a fork failed to make apy impression in the potatoes which were served up yesterday, while Colonel Bur pee had to wait about a half hour be fore a waltei oame around to serve him. The Third regiment, however, unites In saying that they have good commissary looking after, and this is not to be wan dered at, as C. A. Bradley, the well known -New Haven caterer, has charge of their food supply, assisting Samuel L. Terhune of New York, to whom, through the . recommendation of Mr. Bradley, was awarded the feeding of the Third regiment. At this mess house about 675 hungry soldiers are fed each day, and to-day seventy-five watermel ons were cut to supply the hungry brown-hatted boys. The bill of fare to day oomlsted of all good meats, pota toes, tooth common and sweet, cabbage, fresh bread baked on the ground, cof fee, tea, pickles and desert, consisting of pudding, cake, huckleberries and melons So It is seen that the boys-will not starve on hard tack. The boys of the Second are anticipa ting better cook ed stuff after the valiant "kick" put up to-day. Colonel Burpee was so busy all day thbt he hardly had time to perspire, and at 4 o'clock to-day was burled In various reports which he la trying to get through with so that he can talk to his friends Governor's day. In connection with the food inspection it is proper to remark that Private Fred erick J. Sheffele has beetrt detailed by General Peck to inspect uncooked food, such as meats and vegetables, and to report to the commissary general. Of course the boys have some good times, but as for those who think it is all fun, let them march around an dress parade and battalion drill for an hour or two during the boiling midday sun. When they broke ranks after the drill to-day a bee line was made for the tents and there every one stripped coats, hats and all but jeans to stop .the flow of perspiration started on thei'ed hot field. It is some fun, but-there is something else. STRAY SHOTS FROM CAMP. The members of the Sarsfield Com pany are all well. They say that Theodore Miner will be court martlaled and shot If he don't let Patterson and Peters sleep. The fellows in the "Dude Tent" say that Kaschuky Is the best fellow in the lot and keeps the others straight. Dick Connelly will soon be in the guard house for refusing, to eat hash for supper".

Stouty" and Gilhuly of the City Guards will wrestle Thursday after dress parade for a box of soda. Private Earle of the Grays was busy to-day hunting for lemons, as the law is enforced against spirituous Jlquprs and ginger ale, and lemons run shy. The Grays mascot dog "Jinnie Hick- ey" has disappeared, and it is feared he may have been stolen. The boys are in hopes, however, that he has been taken away by some of their friends for a joke. "Jinnie" ,has been with the company for eleven years. Company K of Hartford 'gave the Grays a rousing reception as they came into camp Monday. Company A's hippodrome races will come off Friday night, and will be In charge of Private Grannis, who Is now acting as chaplain of the company. Company I's boys are awake every night initiating new' recruits, and Pri vate Parker was immersed in a wash tub Monday night as an Initiation exer cise. Merlden has sixty-four men in camp. Sergeant of the guard, Bornman, ar rested eight waiters of the' Second Batalllon mess house, for disorderly conduct. They were compelled to walk barefooted and bareheaded around the parade grounds as a punishment. The City Guards will have an Illum ination Friday night. In the "Four Leaved Clover" tent are Sergeant Gutbrod, Sergeant Bornman, Musician Hoffrnelster, and Orderly Krauter. They are a jolly crowd and will be pleased to see their friends Fri day. Lemonade will flow freely. Sergeant Greenbaum has charge of the "Keeley Cure House." The men all like the new hats very well, but don't think they will last long. There will be a ball game to-morrow between players of the City Guards and the Blues. In the "Sheeney Tent" only two of the original organizers are left and the inhabitants now aTe Sergeant Long stein, Sergeant Hallier, Private Ruff and Private "Lou" Dahlmger.

In "Cocoa Tapioca Tent" are Ser geant Greenbaum, Corporal Rocken suse, Private Ericcson and Private "Our Boy" Hanson. Nothing but Lat in is spoken here. They were formerly called "The Silent Triplets." Fred Druehl captured a black cat while on guard Monday night. The ''Midnight Hawks" in tent No. 3, B street, consists of Corporal Frank Paulie, Gus Ochsner, Private Dillman and Private Weber. Dillman saw the sun rise at 3:30 o'clock this morning, and Weber was so hungray that he tried to get a piece out of the moon. The "Jolly Four" has a good quartet which sings every night. They are Winterfield, Mueller, Pokropt and Loch- rie. Private Zimmerman expects to go up in the blanket and has a bath suit ready for the tub act. The Second Regiment band will play a march dedicated to Colonel Burpee Thursday night. Company F, the Grays, has its mot to, "Semper Fidelis" hung out on a banner. 1 (Continued on Fifth Page.)
