He Was Slaying at Sharon A Well Known rigure in New Haven Succeeded Ilia 1 unions Fatlier In Manufacturing Busi ness Keinarkably Well Preserved for One of II In Age. The announcement last Saturday evening that Ell Whitney, sr., of this city had 6uccumbed to an attack of. pleurisy at Sharon, where he had been for a few weeks, was a great surprise to his acquaintances In this city, as few of his most Intimate friends were aware that he was ill, and those who did know of the fact did not realize that his Illness was dangerous in the least. Mr. "Whitney was to have deliv ered an address at the anniversary celebration, of the Whitneyvllle Con gregational church next Wednesday, and as late as last Thursday Mrs. .Whitney wrote to the pastor. Rev. Mr. Clark, that her husband had been ail ing, but that he would probably be well nough to be present and deliver the address Wednesday. In fact, his condi tion was not considered at all serious 'by the attending physician, Dr. Mun eon of Sharon, until late Saturday af ternoon when a sudden change for the worse occurred. He continued to fall : from 5 o'clock of that evening until he i died at 8:30. August 15 Mr. Whitney i same to New Hayen to attend a meet : ing of the directors of the New Haven , Water company, and returned to Shar on, where soon after he was taken with the fatal disease. i Mr. Whitney became unconscious j about 5 o'clock Saturday, and remaln I ed so until his death. ! ' . Word was at once sent to his eon, i Ell Whitney, jr., who was in Norfolk, i Conn., with his family, but before he i had started a message was received announcing his father's death. ; Mr. Whitney was the only son In the family of four children, and inherited s the ability and name of his illustrious father, the inventor of the cotton gin, i; While yet young he learned the busi ness of the manufacture of firearms, which business his father had estab lished in the factory still standing at the lower end of Lake Whitney and now occupied by the Winchester Repeating i Arms company. I This business the elder Whitney es- tabllshed in 1798, having perceived the " necessity of some other financial re. liance than his great invention, a re newal of the patent for which he was unable to secure from congress, because of the strong opposition of the majority of the members from the cotton raising j states. In 1798 Mr. Whitney, sr., se . cured through the influence of Hon. '. Oliver Wolcott of Connecticut, the sec q retary of the treasury, a contract for j 10,000 stands of arms to be delivered ' within about two years. But within this time the factory was to be built, i the machinery to be made and much V - ) or it invented, ana tne woritmen were f J to be Instructed,, 60 that the contract I 41 occupied ten years, hut so -great were I f A the improvements in the guns that the V A mrndiifit was eo hichlv satisfactory us to f win. thp hle-hpst 'encomiums from the government officials. Foreign officials ' had propyhesied after examining Mr. Whitney's method of manufacture that, j although the guns would be indeed , models, the cost of manufacture would s be enormous, but the ingenious Amer- ican had the satisfaction of proving that by his system muskets were made , not only better but cheaper than under e the former method. This is the hie j tory of the business to which the gen i, i tleman who has just died succeeded, ' and until a few years ago he conducted - i the business not only on the same ex- w cellent principles1 adopted Dy nis ra I ther, but greatly enlarged it by an , increase of trade. In 1861 Mr. Whitney and another 4 -contractor named- Charles McClellan, commenced the construction of the wa ter works at Lake Whitney. Numer- i ous attempts had previously been made j to procure a fresh water supply for 1 the city, but failed. It was principally due to Mr. Whitney s energy and as- sumption of pecuniary responsibility In behalf of what was then considered a doubtful : enterprise that the works ' were finally constructed, the introduc- ? 1 tion of a water supply Into the city , ; having been left to a private enter- prise, the New Haven Water company. j Mr. .Whitney advanced the sum of j , $75,000 toward furthering the interests of the company. The company and J contractors had unusual trials and dif ' ' Acuities owing to the persistent oppo- sition of those who tried to secure rival i charters, but Mr. Whitney pushed the work ahead, and on January 1, 1862, water was. first Introduced into the , I mains of the city. During his life Mr. J Whitney was interested in. the water I J company. Upon the death of President f i nenry ajawson a tew years ago Mr. 1 Whitnev was chosen bv the directors of f the New Haven Water company to fill the position- temporarily. Later his j son, Ell Whitney, Jr., was elected to the $ The deceased! was a well known f q figure about the city, being frequently ieen mounted on his bay horse or ' walking to and from the postofflce with ; active step. Despite his age his bear- - ing was erect, and he bore a striking r j resemblance to his father. t Mr. Whitney had- been engaged for 1 i several years past in his leisure hours f ' in perfecting an invention which prom- Vf ised to be of vast financial importance. ' The invention was kept a secret, Mr. Whitney being averse to giving any de- j tails concerning it to the newspapers Ii until the Invention had reached the W point arrived at. It pertained to the f i harvesting of cotton and was destined t'An the opinion of eminent experts on i ,the subject, to prove of immense value to the cotton interests of the United -States. Some reference was made to it fciin leading New York newspapers a 8year ago, and an effort was made to Mob tain particulars regarding the ma (O.chine, but to all Mr. Whitney replied that he was not ready yet to have an. inouncements made. Mr. Whitney was a gentleman of rare jcultivation and refinement, a man of J. .slender build, yet above the medium 3 height and of dignified presence. He iwas a most genial, polished and affa y,-ble gentleman in his home and social yj J? circles, and was a moet hospitable host. t i f tHe had entertained at his fine home on Elm street many distinguished men of the nation, and had done much to identify his name most honorably and conspicuously with the history of New Haven. He had traveled extensively in this country and in the old world, and among his journeys1 perhaps none was more fraught with interest to him than a journey he made to the southern state where he was received with distin guished attention and honors. The in vention of the cotton gin by his father had resulted in vastly developing and enriching the cotton states. As said President Andrews of Brown university in his history of the United States recently published, the inven tion of the cotton gin had an immense effect In deciding and molding the his tory not only of the entire south, but of the whole nation. Mr. Whitney, the younger, the subject of this sketch, had, we believe, the original model of the cotton gin in his possession. He was the possessor of many valuable relics, and was deeply Interested in historical matters and had been tor years one of the leading men of the New Haven Colony Historical society. He leaves a widow, a son, Ell, and a daughter Miss Henrietta, who was with her father at the time of his death. The remains will be brought to the late residence in this city at 29 Elm street.

"The New Boy" -will be presented a the opening attraction this week Thurs day, Friday and Saturday evenings, with matinee on Saturday. Bert Coote will appear in the title role. He was formerly with Pattl Rosa, Frank Don' nelly and Verona Jarbeau. "The New Boy" is a farce comedy. Every sen. tence is punctuated with laughter and underscored with applause. It is a thrai act triumph of wit aiid fun. Every nignt it packs the tneaters in Lonaon, New York and other great cities. Even in far away Austria it has made the "hit" of the year. Everybody loves to see lovers in love. Here is a big, hand some ex-widow just married to a little chap no bigger than a boy. Her old admirers think he is her son. Then the fun begins. The little chap is an edu cated, bright man of affairs, but his fortune is sunk 1n a bad, stock specu lation, so he submits to fate. The "wid ow" accepts the matronship of a school from a former admirer known a3 the doctor. He loves her and wills her his property on condition that she does not marry again. He, too, thinks her hus band her boy. He orders him dressed in school garments and sent to sleep with the bully of the school. "The New Boy" is kicked and cuffed, hazed and snubbed, made to Meal apples for the bully and do many humiliating things, but he has lots of fun and keeps the audience roaring. He is kissed and ca ressed by the pretty daughter of the villain of the play. He sends out for whiskey on the Sly, robs a neighboring orchard, is arrested and taken before the police. Meanwhile the villain is trying to buy for a song the doctor's supposed worthless stock in the cham pagne company enterprise. "The New Boy" has already seen in the newspa pers that the stock has gone up with a bound and warned the doctor not to sell. So the villain is thwarted to the delight of the audience, As "The New Boy" also has blocks of this ohampagne stock he,' too, is happy. The doctor tries to discover the identity of the man who gave him the tip on the stock. .When the hoy returns from the 'police court anr reveals himself as the husband of the pretty "widow" and the man who saved the doctor's fortune everybody is paralyzed with astonishment and de light. The audience is so pleased that you couldn't hear a cyclone for the ap plause. And this is the funny play that has captured London and New York. HYPJSniON.

During the two hours' session to-day the stock market was a fitting counterpart of that of the previous days of ifche week. The course of prices was Irregular, that of the better class of railroad shares be ing upward and of the industrials, as a rule, steady or downward. The rail road element, which bases Its conclus ions on the crop outlook, appears o be more anxious than eastern interests to buy. . .-.' i Manhattan was rather freely sold In the first half hour. A stop order of 1.000 shares was uncovered at 114, resulting in a decline to 112. Around 113 there was good buying, oreatlng tne Deuer thait the long and short stock sold around 117 earlier in the week was taken back. It did not appreciably af fect the price. The speculative coterie In American Tobacco scored further success. It is now a generally estab lished fact that all imterests are work ing for lower prices. Owners of 'the stock do not appear to be rendering support Sellers at the higher fig ures are thus enabled, to easily secure stock with which to hammer the price. Those who recall the sharp break in the stock to about 87 in February, for no apparent cause other than vague re ports qf litigation, hold that the pres ent movement is of a similar nature, and that when the lines desired are secured there will be a reaction. Additional evidence that the anthra cite coal trade is to be rehabilitated ren dered sentiment regarding those shares very bullish, although It did not find expression in stock market transac tions. There was a trifle more activ ity just before the close and a slightly firmer tone, on covering, induced by the desire to close the week even. Following are the closing prices re ported by Prince & Whltely, bankers and brokers, 46 Broadway, New York, and 15 Center street.
