The company owning the factory was a joint affair and included all the hat manufacturers of Bethel. The factory was a thre story wood en structure, 200x 50 feet. The fire started in the third story near a ward robe whore the female operatives kept their hats and wraps. The origin of the fire is a mystery. Owing to the small particles of fur which are flying about in the air tha flames found as much inflammable material to feed up on as if it were a tinder box and the efforts made by the employes to sub due the flames were futile and they had to make a hasty exit. There were a number of girls among the operatives employed on this floor, but all escaped without injury. The town has only a volunteer firo department, but as it was unable to cope with the flames.efforts were main ly directed towards saving adjoining property. The large machine shop of J. R.

Several Changes Mnde In the Vale Team Since Lust Saturday Cntten to l'liiy Center Foster Snnford May be Asked to Assist In Couching the Line Men Uni versity News. The prospects of a victory for Yale on the gridiron to-day are quite prom ising. Several of the men who have been on the hospital list for the past week or two have recovered sufficiently so they are at least able to appear on the field in their suits; Benjamin, who was injured in the first gome with Trinity about four weeks ago, returned to his position at half back last week. Cutten.the big theologlan.on whom so much depends.who has been put by the coaches for a record breaking center, appeared on the field last week, but didn't get in the game until Monday last. His absence for two weeks has been very detrimental, as many import ant ricks and plays which the coaches have shown the line men have not been learned by him. Yesterday Marshall, who has shown up remarkably well at center on the 'Varsity, played the same position on the scrub and kept Cutten on the move all the time. Morris Ely, the game little quarter back, was out in his suit but did not play. It is expected that he will be able to participate in the game with the Indians next Saturday. Gilmore, who had his knee injured last week, resumed practice to-day and played a fine game. Abbott, who was a sub-tackle last year, has for the past year been play ing end, and has shown up so well that it was intended to play him there in the game with Brown to-day. Unfor tunately his left leg was badly injured in one of the scrimmages yesterday, which will necessitate his laying by for a week at least. Charlie Chadwick, the strong man, has apparently lost all the ability to play good, fast football that he ever possessed. He has been decreasing in this respect for the past ten days and yesterday was taken from the 'Var clty and placed at tackle on the scrub team. Yesterday the Yale coaches were no doubt aware of the fact that the game with Brown to-day will be one of the hardest fought contests of the season, and in consequence the practice was much sharper and more spirited than usual. Since Foster Sanford has been in Buffalo coaching an independent team in that city, the efficiency of the work of the line men has steadily decreased. He is recognized as one of the best men in America to handle candidates for the line, and the Yale management has decided to secure, if possible, his as sistance for the rest of the season. Captain Rodgers seems to have al most wholly recovered from his sum mer Illness and his playing for the past two or three days has been marked with that spirit and dash which was so no ticeable last year. He expects to play the entire game against Brown to-day. Arrangements for the big game with Princeton are progressing rapidly. The immense east grand stand is complet ed and the west nearly so. They both stretch the entire length of the field and rise at an angle of 45 degrees to a height of about sixty feet. There are twenty rows of seats and the seating capacity on each stand is about 10,000. As no vehicles will be allowed on the grounds, Marshall, the liveryman, has built about 250 feet of railing directly opposite from the field and expects to accommodate 200 teams. This will be of considerable convenience to the pat rons of the game. Abo'it the first of November candi dates for the basketball team will be called out and preliminary practice for the winter games begun. Several new plays will be introduced this year, and a winning team will no doubt be de veloped. The victories of last year's team caused Its supporters to grow in num bers and it has assumed a rather prom inent place in Yale athletics. Yale men are to be accorded the priv ilege of listening to Joe Jefferson, not as an actor, but as a lecturer. On the occasion of his former visits to this city- he has accepted an invitation to talk informally to. Yale undergraduates and when the students learned that he was to present "The Cricket on the Hearth" here Friday night, they set to work to secure his consent to address them. Mr. Jefferson has accepted the invitation and will speak to the Yale men on Friday afternoon. The place has not yet been selected. He will speak under the auspices of the Yale Union on the "Drama." In connection with this lecture Mr. Jefferson has made the following request: "I would like the students to prepare three or four questions pertaining to the drama, and I do not desire to know them till they are handed to me in writing at the time they are asked." H. G. Whitney of Toledo was elected temporary football captain of Amherst yesterday. Captain Arter was disabled early in the season and will be unable to go back into the game this fall. Whitney is a member of the junior class in college and plays right half back on the 'Varsity team. He is without ex ception the headiest, and probably the pluckiest player on the team. Whit ney played the same position at right half back on Amherst's 'Varsity team during the season of 1895, and was con sidered Amherst's best ground gainer. Whitney being a hard worker himself much good is expected to the team from his captaincy, together with Coach Tyler's efficient work with the team. The freshman football training table started yesterday at Mrs. Coonley's on College street. A meeting of the Colorado club was held last evening at 6:45 in 176 Lyce um.

A large number of men presented themselves as candidates for the university team. BREACH OF LIQUOR LAW. Stony Creek Boarding House Keeper Fined $50 and Costs. Branford, Oct. 19. Mrs. Peter Dough erty of Stony Creek, who keeps a boarding house near Norcross Brothers' quarry, was fined $50 and costs this morning by Judge Zacher for selling liquor without a license. Mrs. Dough erty had been before the court on a similar offence August 30, to which she pleaded guilty, and Judge Zacher stat ed to-day that if it had not been for the recommendation of Prosecuting At torney Beach he would in all probabil ity have made the penalty much heav ier. The arrest wras the outcome of a raid made by Constable Frazicr on Sunday night, when he found a dozen men drinking beer in the place. This Is the second prosecution within a week, and a prominent citizen of Stony Creek made the statement after court adjourned that there were thirty-one places In Stony Creek where beer was sold openly, despite the fact that no licenses have been granted in that district this year.
