Crowds View the Verlscope Pictures Yesterday Afternoon and Evening. A good house watched the scenes rep resenting Corbett and FItzsimmons do ing flstlo battle last night at the Hy perion and went away very well pleas ed with the verlscope and its pictures. The evening was but a repetition of the matinee, many ladles being present at each performance. The house was kept cool and comfortable by means of sev eral large electric fans. From the pre liminary scenes and early rounds the interest was great all the way through and became intense In the critical sixth and the final fourteenth. In the sixth round many spectators held their watches in hand to count with Referee Slier as to whether "Fitz" was down twelve seconds or not. Those who counted a knockout were about at nu merous as those who said otherwise. At times when one or the other of the combatants landed a particularly clev er hit, or parried neatly, there were murmurs of commendation from all parts of the house, and some of New Haven's prominent citizens got so ex cited at times that they appeared to forget It was only a representation of what has become history, and not an actual battle they were witnessing. They would ask their neighbors why Corbett or FItzsimmons did not do this or do that. The Intense interest Increased all along from the sixth round until it cul minated in the short fourteenth, when Corbett got the knockout on the solar plexus. The scenes enacted for five minutes after the battle were also shown, when Corbett In his half-crazed condition rushed from side to side of the ring. The exhibition will be repeated after noons and evenings until Thursday night. Prices for the matinee are 25 cents to any part of the house, and in the evening 25 cents and 50 cents. iV hOC A ft INTEREST, "Weather Observer Myers said yester day that the wind would shift to the northwest by to-day and that the weather would be clear and cooler af ter that. The dog day weather and showers of Sunday and yesterday were caused by a storm which Sunday was' central over the lake region, and is passing north of us, headed for the St. Lawrence valley. The thunder showers of Sunday morning and Monday morn ing were merely local showers hanging on the fringes of the main storm. The Police Sick Benefit association will hold a meeting to-day to decide on the date of the baseball game with the Bridgeport police. Edward Judd, an old citizen, desti tute and suffering from a sprained ankle, was committed to Springside yesterday. Judd has been there sever al times before. Lightning in the big thunder shower early yesterday morning struck the cross on the St Francis' parochial sohool on Ferry street, and knocked it off the building. Detective Sergeant Dennehy yester day found an owner for a Delta Phi pin which he recovered in a pawn shop on Grand avenue some time ago. On the pin was the name of S. E. Thomas, of Yale, class of 1900. The detective traced Thomas and found that he lived at 8 West 20th street, New York, where he wrote to him. He received a letter from Thomas, who was in the Adtron dacks, and said that the pin belonged to him. He lost it on Grove Btreet last winter. Sergeant Dennehy has sent the pin to him. Harry W. Knapp of 14 Nash street full down stairs while employed in Chamberlain & Co.s furniture store, in Orange street yesterday. A the hospi tal it was found that he had sustained a compound fracture of the right fore arm. "Susan Turnbull, or the Power of Woman" is a new novel by Gunter.

James B. Smith's Saddle Horse Grows . Ugly and an Accident Results. James B. Smith, private secretary to Manager I. A. Kelsey, of the Winches ter Avenue Railroad company, had a thrilling experience shortly before 6 o'clock last evening. He was driving bareback beside a Savin Rock car on Campbell avenue, when the horse balk ed and backed up against the speeding car. The force of the impact tumbled horse and rider to the ground. Motor man Palmer and Conductor KIrtland, who were In charge of the car, went to Mr. Smith's assistance and held the pranolng horse, but beyond a severe shaking up Mr. Smith was unharmed, and the horse showed not a scratch.

What is probably the finest and most complete exhibit of fire-fighting appli ances Is now on exhibition in Ewen Mc Intyre's old store on Chapel street. It Is free to the public and is attracting widespread interest, not only from the fire chiefs, but from all classes of citi zens. All of the exhibits have not yet been placed In the exhibition hall, but the display will probably be complete by noon to-day, as a score of workmen were busy until late last night getting things ready. Beside the Chapel street exhibit there is another of large apparatus in a tent at the rear of the city hall. It consists of fire engines, trucks, wheels, ladders and a variety of large appliances. The fire engines will be given a public test on the green back of Trinity church some day this week. Beside the en gines the various sizes of hose and the different kinds of nozzles will be given a test that cannot fall of making an in teresting spectacle. One of the finest exhibits is that by the Valjen-Bader company of Indian apolis, Ind. It consists of life-saving devices to be used by firemen. They make asbestos clothes, and show a suit of it which might pass for a suit of the finest duck. Their patent smoke protector, however, is what excites the greatest interest, It is a hood that goes over a fireman's head to be used by him in fighting fires under extreme diffi culties. Its makers guarantee that a man wearing this protector can go into all kinds of noxious and deadly fumes and breathe as freely as In the purest air. The process of purifying the air before it reaches the nostrils la chemi cal, a reservoir for the chemicals be ing applied to the back of the hood. The protector will protect the head completely against fire, heat, smoke. gas, steam, falling debris, ammonia and sulphur fumes and bad air. The wear er can breathe, hear and see with per fect freedom. The inventor of the pro tector, Mr. Willis C. Valjen, intends to give a public exhibition of his device on the green. An interesting feature of the Boston Woven Hose and Rubber company is the Dixon gun, which shoots a life line to the top of any building in the world, and attached to which line is a folding wire ladder, which is capable of sus taining the weight of two persons at a time. A life-saving harness, invented by Captain Griffin of truck 8, Boston j department, is also shown. With this harness persons insensible, overcome by smoke or injured, can be removed from buildings or brought down by lad ders, easily and with safety. Alumi num fire hats, too, are shown. This company shows a great variety of articles. There are goose necks for use on flush hydrants, lanterns, gongs, nose protectors, hose hoists, hose and ladder straps, hose menders, spanners, Siamese connections, hydrant gates, hose caps, strainers, torches, hats, trumpets, hose reels, hose racks and innumerable articles. , On' the second floor is the large ex hibit of the Gamewell Fire Alarm Tele graph company of New. York. The Gamewell system is in use in this city and in between 700 and 800 other cities in the United States. This company is also making the largest display that It has ever done. It has about two doz en gongs, all of different sizes and de signs, Indicators, tappers, fire alarm boxes of all styles, including the plain, non-interfering, successive, keyless, school and railroad boxes; also nollce signal boxes and apparatus. There are also automatic repeaters and switch boards, storage batteries and switch boards for the same, bell striking ma chinery, whistle blowing machines and also auxiliary alarms and boxes. All of these things are connected up with electricity and are in first-class work ing order. C. E. Berry of Cambridgeport, Mass., has an exhibit that consists of swing ing harness and the Berry harness, with a new device, for locking the col lar, the bolt being interchangeable. The Berry spring which holds the har ness aloft is new and interesting to firemen. The invention, which consists of two elliptical gears, with spring attached to one to hold the harness In position, is placed between the ceiling and the floor above. Unlike the weight, which de mands a steady pull to draw the collar down for locking, this spring simply re quires a slight touch to drop the har ness upon the horse's back, thus mak ing the operation of locking a very easy matter. To the" other elliptical gear is fitted a cylinder containing a spring, around which cylinder is the cord for drawing the hanger quickly and stead ily upward, thus preventing all punc turing of the ceiling. They have also a three-horse hitch which can be util ized in houses with only a seven-foot doorway. This is on exhibition for the first time. ., ( The Archibald ' Wheel company of Lawrence, Mass., show powerfully built wheels and gears, while next is the exhibit of the Hall Manufacturing com pany of Rockland,' Md., axes and axe handles. On the left at the entrance is the New Jersey Car Spring and Rubber company's exhibit of hose, while next is that of the Hunter self cushioned life-saving net. The United States Fire and Police Telegraph company of Boston will show an extensive and valuable system of alarms. With the exhibit are J. J. Rud dlck and Edward Heymann. Other exhibitors are: Malcom Hun- fter, Long Island City, life nets; Knight & Thomas, Boston, fire extinguishers, and many others. ' 'iviuauctal. Market Appear to Have Loat Its Strength, but Prices Have Not Declined Greatly. New York, Aug. 16. There were peri ods to-day when the market for stocks had an appearance of actual dullness. But this was only by contrast with re cent markets. The total sales fell be low 500,000 shares by over 50,000 shares, which is what it did not do for any whole trading day last week. There was a large falling oft also in the activ ity in the bond department. Whatever striking animation there was was In the first hour of trading. The buying during this period was brisk, arbitrage brokers joining with the commission house agents to swell the demand. This represented the working off of the accumulation of or ders received by commission houses over Sunday. London was buying some of the international shares at the same time that it was selling others. As a result of this lively demand prices bounded lightly upward, new high rec ord prices for the year being made in a number of prominent stocks. The grangers were actively traded in at the higher level, Burlington showing the sharpest gain, but St. Paul being most actively dealt In. St. Paul 'was the leader of the list and was quite largely bought for London account. Burlington touched 99 in the opening dealings, but closed a point below that. The other grangers moved over a much narrower range, but closed but little above the lowest. The upward bound of prices at the opening invited realizing sales. The professional bears added their utmost efforts. They had in their favor some reports of crop damage in the west, and the result was soon shown in a reac tion in prices of the grangers and southwesterns, which had a sympathet ic effect on the whole list. Prices of many stocks were carried below Satur day's close. Although there was a firmer tone later and some slight re coveries, the market failed to fully re gain its tone before the close and con sequently prices of most of the active leaders of the market show only slight changes from yesterday. The net changes, though slight, are mostly gains, one or two of the gran gers being exceptions. The undertone of strength in the market was again strikingly manifested by the dullness that set in upon the decline in prices. Sugar again assumed a prominent part in the dealings and touched a new high record price at 149V6, but reacted nearly a point before the close. Tobacco was also largely dealt in, opening at a sharp gain, but selling off during the day. Chicago GaB also showed some signs of renewed activity, but it also suffer ed from the reaction in the market. Although the early strength carried many stocks to a point or over above Saturday's close, the gain was In most cases practically wiped out. The Van derbllt stocks, particularly Chesapeake and Ohio and Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis, were notably firm all day, closing near the top. The latter's preferred stock was bid up five points. Other notable gains are: Rub ber preferred, S; Spirits preferred, 2; Flint and Pere Marquette, 2; Oregon Navigation preferred, 2; Cotton Oil preferred, Central Pacific, Colorado Fuel, Great Northern preferred, Metro politan Traction and Rubber common, 1 per cent. each. The bond market showed a marked diminution in the volume of trading as compared with recent averages, the total falling short of $2,000,000. The speculation also lacked the aggressive strength, but the market was fairly well supported and some substantial gains were registered In the less known issues. The aggregate transactions were $1,835,000. Governments were heavy and receded a fraction on light offerings.
