CarU, our former popular and highly esteemed fellow citizen, 13 now a resident of Greater New York. He lived in New Haven for more than forty years and was ever a public spirited and a wide-awake business man, generous and upright in all his dealings ,and beloved by all who were brought into contaot with him. He built the Hyperion theater at a time when apparently there was no oppor tunity for such a venture, and very successfully conducted it for about a dozen years. Mr. Carll, with indomita ble perseveraace, secured enough finan cial backing to build' the Hyperion. That is but one instance of the direc tion his genius took and the capacity he showed for great undertakings. Mr. Carll is now domiciled with his family in a large new stone house on the western boulevard, New York city, two hundred feet above sea level, and not far from General Grant's tomb, Co lumbia college. Riverside drive and the Hudson river, all of which are in view from his house. It has a beautiful lo cation in a select party of the city. To a friend Mr. Carll has written that he has been offered the manage ment of a banking corporation, but has not yet made any definite decision. His many New Haven friends will be glad to learn that Mr. Carl and his family are enjoying good health, and will wish ,him all success and happiness. FV2fEU4.Ii OF J". . WHITMOltE. Simple tuf Impressive Service at His Home Yesterday. ' The funeral services of the late James -D. Whitmore were held at his home, 147 Bradley etreet, yesterday af ternoon. The services were simple but deeply impressive. Rev. Dr. Newman Smyth officiated. The singing was very beautiful, two solos being rendered by a near neighbor and friend, Mr. Sey mour L. Spier of the Dwight Place church choir. Mr.' Spier rendered with depth of feeling the solos, "Safe in the Arms of Jesus" and "Thy Will be Done." . Among those who assembled to pay Mr. Whitmore the last tribute of re spect were the principals and teachers of the public schools, those who taught under him in the Hillhouse high school and many of his former graduates, not only from Hillhouse high school, but those from other cities, for Mr. Whit more was a well known and most sua cessful educator, both here and else where. The bearers were Messrs. A. E. Row land, N. J. Hayes, F. S. Bradley, Evarts Cutler, E. L. Clark and G. W. Bigelow. The interment was in Evergreen cemetery. NORTHFOED LOOKING DP. Northford, August 19. Northford Is sure ly feeling the quickening pulse of business, as quite a number of enterprises are in pre paration nnd will soon be on foot. Mr. Bartholomew Is setting up machinery In the bolt shop and Mr. David Stephens has built a new water wheel for his curd works. All the houses In town are full tind the grocery stores are doing a rushing business. The young people have a spin on our new stone road every evening, and surveyors are at work on a new piece to be laid down this fall. Some' building lots are yet for sale and we are looking to see the trolley road connecting Montowese and Middletown run ning through here soon; then new build ings will go up and will be occupied by many of the New Haven people, and there will be a general time of prosperity all along the line. S. A. B. FUNERAL OP EDWARD HANSON. . Many Beautiful Floral Offerings from His Friends and Comrades. The funeral of the late Edward Hanson, who died suddenly In Westville last Mon day night, was held from Grace M. E. church yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Rev. J. It. Henry, who is filling the pas tor's place for a month, officiated and spoke very finely concerning the deceased. The bearers were all personal friends of the deceased and were: Earnest Buttery, Wesley Stone, Abner C. Laird, Wesley Roxbury, Frederick Cntlinnnd J. C. Smith. During the service selections were ren dered by Mrs. Schemerhorn, soprano, and Mrs. L. H. Johnson, contralto. Mrs. L. A. Huntley presided at the organ. There were several noral pieces, noticeable among them being a beautiful harp from the members of the Y. P. S. C. E.,of which the deceased was a member, and a pillow from the friends who were with him at the time of his death. The Interment was in Ever green cemetery- . OF LOCAL JNTEltEST, x Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Andrew of 31 Car mel street are spending the week at Atlantic City. They will also visit Philadelphia and other places before returning. Yesterday's Seymour Record says: "Mrs. X. H. Munson and her daughter, liss Edith Munson, left town yester day for New Haven, having disposed of their household effects. They will re eide in the future with their daughter, Mrs. Henry F. Feck, who returned with them. Both will be greatly missed here, where they have many warm friends." AT SAVIN ROCK. An Attractive and Interesting Event to be Held There. Friday, August 27, will be babies' day at Savin Rock, and already great en thusiasm is being shown by the moth ers of the dimpled darlings. Each day entries are being made at Sparks & Co.'s, and the exhibition promises to far exceed the one given last year, and as the colored babies have already con tested for prizes this year the manage ment reserves the right to exclude them from this exhibition. . The entries can be made free of charge, and baby carriages will be car ried free on that day. HEiunEx jBurcuEits' vvriya. Shore Dinner and Ball Game at Savin Koek Yesterday. The butchers of Merlden were at Sav in Rock yesterday. They enjoyed a fine shore dinner at the Sea View house and played a ball game at the Win chester grounds. The contest was be tween the married men and the single men. The Merlden meat cutters were hon ored by a visit from a number of the lovers of the game among the fire chiefs after the clambake was over with at Miller's Casino. LAST DAY OF FIRE CHIEFS (Continued from First Page.) "The maintenance of special and di rect wires to buildings to communicate alarms of fires facilitates the work of the department, and this feature of the use of the telegraph system is growing. stationary fire appliances have not se cured the respect of professional fire men. I think that the stationary fire appliances without reasonably efficient and trained help to use them, will re main, therefore, of uncertain value, if not or actual detriment in the attempt to control fire. "The importance of locating a fire is one that strikes the mind of every ex perienced fireman instantly; and no fireman can claim thorough competen cy, unless he acquires and trains him self to the knowledge or art of discov ering the exac: location of a fire. This is his first miln reliance towards the actual control, l trust no one will im agine that he is to look for the starting point of a fire, if upon his arrival, he finds the building on fire from cellar to roof. It certainly must be clear to all of you how essential it is, in order to secure the ,best results, to be able to promptly locate fires. The next object in the control of fire is the proper lo cation of companies, and assignment of officers and men. It is not my pur pose to go into details and describe the operations of a fire. My main point is to establish that the rules for the control of fire must be uppermost in the mind of any one who hopes to achieve success in this direction. "The danger existing in every fire, however minute, is the generation of heat and gas. ii is a matter of the highest importance to remember that the processes of combustion at ' fires causes an abnormal condition of the air surrounding the fire. The air cer tainly becomes changed by being charged with the heat and gases of combustion. It takes on altogether different qualities, and what these ex act qualities are, and how they differ at different fires, is as yet unknown to anybody. From observations made at numerous fires, I am convinced that the atmosphere at certain stages of a fire. and especially certain parts of if is transformed into a combustible and ex plosive gas, and I believe that this air is a means of actual communication of fire. ' "While extending protection against fire, and aiming at the better and quicker control of fire, it is no less the duty of the firemen charged with such responsibilities, to persistently, honest ly, and fearlessly awaken and main tain a public interest in all that main tains to his art, to the end that suffi cient means are place' at his disposi tion to enable him to perform his du ties and to enlighten the public mind to the fact that the work of a fireman is one requiring the exercises of correct judgment, experience, skill, and other attributes, and withal a combination of such qualities that forbid the ap pointment or engagement of men in any capacity in our fire departments. unless they possess the qualities de manded. This is a duty that firemen owe to themselves, to their communl ties and to -the public at large." The Sail Down the Harbor. Yesterday the fire chiefs dropped for the entire day, until 7:30 last evening, the business of the convention and de voted the day to having a good time. They had it. This is the verdict given Dy an last evening after the return from the great clambake at Miller's casino, Savin Rock. So perfectly had the general committee arranged details for the day's outing that everything passed off smoothly, with no hitch to mar the pleasure of the occasion. First on the programme for the day was the sail up the sound on the large steamer C. H. Northam, the use of which was donated gratis to the com mittee for the trip, thanks to the influ ence of Passenger Agent F. E. Young and Local Agent Charles I. French. Not only did these gentlemen secure the steamer for the occasion, but they were on board and assisted personally in the entertainment of the hundreds of guests. The Fair Haven and Westville Rail road company placed twenty cars at the disposal of the committee of ar rangements to transfer the party of 700 from the green at 9 o'clock yesterday morning to Belle dock. Complimentary tickets were issued to all those wearing official badges. It was 9:45 when the entire party was aboard and the big boat steamed away from Belle dock. The officials of the steamboat com pany had considerable trouble In keep ing the regular New York passengers from boarding the Northam and some of them could not seem to understand why she was not going to New York. The mayor was unable to go but he went to the dock to see the party off. Captain Hardy of the Northam stated that she would probably run straight out as near Long Island as possible and then run to the eastward, coming back by Stratford Shoal light. The plan was to return here by 1:30. As soon as the Northam left the dock the Continental backed in and started on the regular New York trip shortly alter iu:3U. The trip on the sound was delightful and the cool weather made it all that could be desired. To many of the dale gates from far inland the sail was an unusual pleasure not only because of the great company of pleasant people on board but the salt breezcB were a genuine tonic bracing up the tired delegatus. Music was furnished by the Old Guard Band, which was situated on the upper deck aft. Two selections were rendered during the arrival of the guests, who were taken In charge by the citizens' committee. The steamer sailed down the lower harbor and out on the sound towards the Stratford Shoal light off Bridgeport harbor. ' Members of the citizens committee and other citizens on board pointed out the historical spots of in terest along the harbor front to the visiting chiefs and their friends. Many of the chiefs, who come from the inland cities, were greatly interested in the machinery of the steamboat, and they had an opportunity of examining the big engines and boilers. The great majority enjoyed themselves, however, by selecting a cool spot on the upper decks and fitting in the breeze away from the warm sun. Upon the return trip a light luncheon of ham sandwiches and lemonade was served. Mr. English remarked that the luncheon was simply to make the dole- gates "feel safe if a strange feeling arose from within." Among those citizens on the steamer were Fire Commissioners Morgan, Cun ningham and Ames, ex-Mayor A. C. Hendrick, Chief Kennedy, Senator Ly man H, Johnson, Selectman Maj. Su cher. Gen. A. H. Embler, Representa tive Frederick L. Averill, Ewen Mcln tyre, D. I.. Blakeslee, Alderman Rourke, Thomas H. Sullivan, and Capt. Ludlng ton. ' The Northam reached Belle dock on the return trip at 1:30 o'clock in the af ternoon, and the excursion party board ed special trolley cars for Savin Rock. The cars were taken up Chapel street and then switched to the West Haven road, over which route they reached the Rock. The parade and review by the fire and police departments will be held at 12 o'clock noon to-day. After forming on Temple street the line of march will be down Elm street to State, to Chapel, to Church street, past city hall in re view to Wall street, where the parade will be dismissed. The chief business to come before the session of the convention to-day will be the election of a president of the association and the selection of a city in which to hold the next convention. It is practically settled that Chief An drew J. Kennedy of this city will be eleoted president. It has been the cus tom of the association during the past five years to elect as president the chief of the city in which the convention Is held. There is still considerable doubt as to which city will get the convention next year. Six cities are bidding for it, they being St. Louis, Omaha, Reading, Pa., Peoria, 111., Utica, N. Y., and Niagara Falls, N. Y. St. Louis seems to be fa vored by a majority of the chiefs, and it is probable that that city will be selected as the place for the next con vention. Yesterday the Peoria (111.) board of trade telegraphed Chief W. C. Moeller of that city, who is attending the con vention, as follows: To the International Convention of Fire Chiefs: The Peoria board of trade extends a most cordial invitation to your honor able association to hold your next an nual convention in Peoria. We prom ise you a hearty reception and a good time. R. C. GRIER, Secretary. The mayor of Peoria telegraphed as follows: "All the leading hotels promise to charge but $2 a day. "JOHN WARNER, Mayor." The Peoria delegation say that owing to the pressure being brought to ber upon them to secure the next conven tion for their city that unless they do secure it they may as well not return. Steamer Margaret makes two trips every Sunday to Pico park, Branford Point and Pawson park, leaving Belle dock at 10:30 a. m. and 2 p. m., sailing around Thimble Islands each trip. A band concert will be given at Pico park in the afternoon. Stock Market I Sensitive With a Pro- nonnoHl Bearish Tendency. New York, Aug. 19. The stock market to-day continued to show Itself sensi tive to unfavorable influences to a marked degree. At no time during the day did the course of prices indicate any aggressive strength. The liquida tion at times was quite heavy, espec ially in the International stocks and the grangers. The principal factor in the situation was the heavy selling for foreign account of wheat, sales for that account being estimated at between 2, 000,000 and 3,000,000 bushels for the day. So much stress have been laid for sev eral weeks past on the foreign need for our grain crop as giving the best assur ance for prosperity to the farming pop ulation and better times for all that it was but natural that depression should be caused by the disposition of for eigners to sell back to us the wheat they have purchased. This develop ment in the situation gave the great est aid to the professional bears, who have been working as persistently for a reaction in the price of stocks. They are also assisted by the reac tionary tendency in the London stock market, which embraced all securities, including those of American railways, and which was due to the hostilities which have broken out on the Indian frontier. London also sold quite heav ily in this market of nearly all the in ternational stocks. Another depressing influence was the reports which are in dustriously kept in circulation of con tinued cold weather in the west, caus ing danger of a lessened spring wheat crop and a delay In the maturity of the corn crop. The course of the exchange market to-day caused disappointment to those who have been looking forward to ear ly imports of gold as an additional bull factor in the stock market. Actual rates for both long and short sterling rose about cent in spite of the fact that the open market discount in Lon don showed an easier tone and that the Bank of England refrained from ad vancing its minimum rate of discount to-day. The foreign selling of grain and the continued selling of American securities for foreign account helped to stiffen exchange rate. The failure of the Bank of Engltnd to advance its rate of discount is re- garded as evidence that no fears are felt of an immediate drain of gold from London. These combined causes ef fected quite a marked reaction In the price of stocks generally and this was accelerated by the uncovering of stop orders. But .the selling movement seemed to lose Us force in a short time and the market turned into extreme dullness. Supporting orders were found to bo forthcoming at the low point, and those who had sold out apparently wanted to buy stocks again and hold for a rise. Sugar was quite a promi nent feature and touched a new high record of 150, aiding materially in ral lying the market. It sold off again to near the lowest. A buying demand for the coalers late in the day was also of material assist ance in raising prices from the low point, as was also a sharp rise in the prices of local gas stocks. The bears raided the market again just at the close, causing prices to ease off after the rally. Nevertheless, net losses, though general, are for the most part small. Good traffic returns for the sec ond week of August from Southern rail way, Chesapeake and Ohio, Chicago Great Western and Louisville and Nashville gave a firmer tone to those stocks and helped to steady the market. Brooklyn Rapid Transit showed strength on account of plana for cross ing Brooklyn bridge. Losses of a point occurred in Erie first preferred, Illinois Central, Lake Erie and Western, Minnesota Iron, Rubber and Lake Shore, and of 2Ya in Rubber preferred. Consolidated Gas gained 3, Brooklyn Union Gas, Chicago and Eastern Ilinols, and Lackawanna 2 or over, and Brooklyn Transit and St. Joe and Grand Island over a point.

MM LIFE 11 G01ECTICIIT MIL THE FUTURE of a life insurance company can, and properly should be judged by its success in the past. No life insurance institution can be continuously suc cessful unless the management makes the earning quality, as well as the safety, of the investments the first consideration when selecting securities. The Aetna Life's Success in these particulars has been Unparalleled. Not only have the investments been of the best character, but their interest earning qualities have been a great factor in producing the well-known success of the company. As evidence of the good judgment exercised in purchas ing securities, and of the great care shown in selecting lives upon which to grant insurance, the following exhibit gives the results obtained by the responsible Stock Management of the, Etna Life since 1850, in comparison with the results reached by the Proxy-Management of the Connecti cut Mutual since 1846.
