NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1897.
WOULD START A CITY TAPER (Continued from First Pago. ) bo we ought to take on ayo and nay vote to see who is dolnfr it. I move that we table this resolution temporari ly." This mqtion was carried, and while Bn item of the report of the committee on claims was being read Mr. Isbell conferred with Councilman Fuller. Af ter a few moments' conversation Mv. Isbell moved to take the resolution Irom the table, and It was so voted. He then announced that he had looked tip the charter and found that, on page !6 of the charter it was required, in or fler for a recommendation of the board tof finance to pass the common council, that it receive the vote of five-sixths of the members present, not necessarily five-sixths of the entire board. A yote on the resolution recommend ed was then taken and it resulted in a vote of 22 to S in favor of it, the three counpllmen voting against the resolu tion being Messrs. Cooney, Cronan and .Wrinn. President Burton at first declared the Resolution lost, as it had not received a flva-slxtha vote,- After thjnking and figuring a moment, however. Council man Fuller jumped up and claimed that the resolution had received a five-sixths vote and had passed. President Bur ton announced that the chair had been In error and declared the resolution passed. The recomemndatlon of the commit tee on claims that Abigail M, Hiller be given leave to withdraw her claim for abatement of her sewer assessment of $862.62, was adopted. A resolution was offered by Council man Fuller to instruct the board of finance to include in the estimates next year a specific sum to harden Wall street from York to State streets. Mr. Fuller said that the director of public works had already included in the es timates a sum to pay for the harden ing of Wall street, between York and Temple streets, and explained that his resolution was to authorize the increase Of the estimate to a sum sufficient for the entire street. Councilman C. E. Burton saw an op portunity and said: ''The gentleman from the First is doubtless working for the interest of his ward. Others here are also working for the interests of their wards. The gentleman from the First has been one of the most strenu ous oDDonents of street hardening. We have been called ward grabbers by the newspapers no I wont say by the newspapers and all sorts of names, charged with making deals, etc. Now, I for one, am not opposed to the har dening of Wall street, but thought that this was a good chance to remark upon the gentleman opposing the $26,000 ap proprlation and then recommending to the board of finance that it include in the estimates a sum to pay for the har. flening of Wall street." The resolution was adopted. v The councilmen concurred with the Bldermen in referring the petition of 'Anthony Carroll, in which that gentle man makes charges against the ordi nance committee to the committee on retrenchment and reform to invest! gate, A remonstrance from the residents on Harriett street against the extension of the streeet was referred to the street committee, The amended ordinance .presented by the plumbers was tabled for printing. The recommendation of the ordinance committee that the peti tioners for an ordinance to prevent the planting, of any other than elm trees along the streets without permission from the mayor, be given leave to with draw; was adopted. As the amount of $26,672.72 appropri ated last year for the hardening of cer tain streets Will revert to the city treas cry at the end of the present year if not used before that time for the pur pose for which it was appropriated. Councilman C. E, Burton last night of fered a resolution instructing the board of finance to inelude in next year's es timates the sums appropriated last year for street hardening. After some " discussion as to the advisability of the Use of the word "instruct" in the reso lution, it was passed. Councilman Ful ler' held that the common council had no authority to order the board of finance to do anything, that the word eUould be "request." Captain Dowe thought the word should be instruct, He said: "The corporation counsel has Bald that the common council is su preme. The board of finance is a side Issue." Councilman Brown said: "If -re re bluest the board of finance we will never get the streets hardened. I think that we shduld instruct the board of finance and then make them follow out our in structions. The councilmen concurred with the aldermen in referring Alderman Chil lingworth's resolution to place the laun dries under police and board of health surveillance to the board of health. The resolution offered by Alderman tLamber providing for the sale of the site on Clinton avenue was tabled for printing. On motion of Councilman Isbell, it was voted to request the aldermen to transmit to the board of councilmen the report of the committee on revision Of ordinances. A resolution by Councilman Riggs to Instruct the board of finance to include in its estimates $5,000 to pay for the liardening of Shelton avenue, between Munson street and the town line, north erly, was passed. The report of the bureau of compen sation was received and tabled for printing. The report is on the assess ment of benefits and damages for the extension of Livingston street, exten sion of Harriett street, widening of Derby avenue, change of grade on East Chapel street and for the layout of Ask Your Dentist. We do not want you to think that ;when you buy Pearlo-dento that it will remove tartar and stains from your teeth. If you could only believe that tartar and stains should only be re moved by your dentist you would not want any dentifrice which claims to accomplish these results. It is no won 'der that tooth preparations containing cuttle-fish and pumice stone should Claim to remove almost anything, for they Wear down enamel near the gums where it is thinnest and encourage soreness, sensitiveness and decay. Don't try to avoid your dentist to your detriment. Pearlo-dento polishes but does not grind. It often takes off tobacco stains end counteracts the accumulation of tartar, but we do not claim it will al ways remove both, for we know it takes grit to do it and there is no harmful grit in Pearlo-dento. There is a wealth of merit in it, but it does not make any pretence of doing what only a dentist should do. Would you polish your silver with sand? street lines on East Chapel street, be tween East and Mill streets. For the change of grade on East Chupol street and the construction of the new bridge over Mill river and the retaining walls the committee recom mends that the city pay damages as follows: To John J. Murphy. $1,005.48; to the John T. Doyle Co., $205; to the H. W. Stowe Lumber Co.. $673.67, to the Edward H. Ward well Co., $93. The com mittee recommends that the Fair Ha ven and Westvllle railroad be assessed $1,039.58 for benefit. The report says that by the advice of the corporation oounsel equal benefits and damages are assessed op-alnst the New Haven Steam Saw Mill Co., and W. P Dickerman as it is understood that those parties will carry the matter to the courts anyway. The assessments of benefits and dam ages for change of grade made neces sary by the construction of the new railroad bridge on East Chapel street are made equal. For the extension of Harriett street the following damages are recom mended to be paid: To Sarah J. Bas sett, $300; to E. I. Treat, $200; to Corne lius Pierpont, $200. Benefits of $700 are assessed against other residents on the street. For the widening of Derby avenue damages are assessed as follows: To Frank S. Andrew, $112,; to Annie L. Nettleton, $93.75; to Margaret Ferry, $46.S0; to the 'Wnodbury Savings bank, $175. The Fair Haven and Westvllle railroad is assessed $100 for benefits. or the extension of Livingston street the following- damages are awarded: Maria N. Livingston, $783, Other resi dents on the street are assessed $783 for benefits. For the layout of street line -on East Chapel street the benefits and damages were adjudged equal. A COMMUNICATION. The New Haven Woman School Suffrage association, will hold its an. nual business meeting on Thursday, November 11. in the Boardman School building, beginning promptly at 3 o clock. . Reports for the year's work may be expected from the secretary, the treas urer and the chairman of committees. These will show that the organization in passing safely through recent vicis situdes of political significance Is not to be thereby turned from its reeogmiz ed legitimate sphere in school inter ests. The necessary modification of its title will be found to widen its scope of work and with the freer latitude of membership. The association becomes one of general concern. The impression prevailed during the summer months that nothing was be ing done by the women in regard to the school board appointments. Those who attend the meetings on Thursday will have the opportunity to hear the very interesting report of the committee ap pointed to memorialize the mayor on this subject, . It should be remembered that at the meeting the officers and committees for the next year are to be elected, and many important matters decided. A cordial invitation is extended to all women interested in the welfare of the public schools. R. D. BEACH, Secretary, PROFESSOR OAPPALO'S SOCIABLE. A grand sociable given by Professor L. G. Cappallo's dancing academy, in Harugari hall, was attended by at least 150 couples. Scanlon's orchestra fur nished the music and a very enjoyable time was had by all.. Those in charge were: Floor manager L. G. Cappallo. Assistant floor manager W. Kegel meyer. Floor committee W. Randall, It. Hermann, H. Hurd, F, S. Elkins and N. H. Beecher. SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION. The Connecticut Sunday School asso ciation will hold a Sunday school con vention at Calvary Baptist church, to day; sessions at l6 a. m., 1:30 p. m. and 7:33 p. m. A VANISHING TYPE. Only lately have Philadelphians be gun to realize and reflect upon the dis appearance of the Quakers as we knew them; only lately has it been brought homo to us that a gradual obliteration of the old uncompromising orthodoxy has set in which means the ultimate absorption of the sect. Even now, rare as is the old garb on the streets where it was such a common sight not bo many years ago, the assertion that the society is diminishing would meet with doubt and hesitation. We are so fami liar with the Quaker, he is so necessary and potent a type in Philadelphia, that we would not accept the warrant even of statistics; yet, now that the visible limit has been reached, what can we do but awake to the change? We see few broad-brimmed hats and drab bonnets where we once saw many; of those who wear them, the most are oldWnd tremb ling. If there are young Quakers, how are we to recognize them? Not by their dress, at any rate, except in so far as plainness of cut and sooriety of color still rule the taste of Friends, whether wealthy or in moderate circumstances;, the distinctive costume is being laid aside, with many of the distinctive cus toms. And why? Because the Society is losing its control over its younger members? because its rigid rules no longer suffice to hold in check the hu man spirit, with Its unconquerable love of freedom? This is the common expla nation, and the one desired by those who love romance. Thomas Wharton in Lippincott's. AN AWKWARD PREDICAMENT. Professor Max Muller, in Cosmopolis, in the coin-rooms of the British muse urn, where, during a visit of a number of gentlemen and ladies, it was ob served that a very valuable and almost unique Sicilian coin had disappeared. All the gentlemen present in the room at the time had to be searched, ana no one objected except one. He protested his innocence, but declared that noth ing would induce him to allow his pock- ets to be searched. All the otner visi tors were allowed to go home, but he was detained while the coin-room was swept, and every coiner searched once more. At last the missing coin was found in a chink of the floor. Even apology was made to the sus. pected person, but he was asked why he had so strongly objected to being searched. He then produced from his pocket another specimen of the very same coin. "I came here," he said, "to compare my specimen, which is very perfect, with the only other specimen which is thought to be superior to mine, and almost unique in the world. Now, suppose," he added, "that you had not touna your coin, ana haa iouna.jny specimen in my pocket, would anybody havo believed in my Innocence?" ARMORY NOTES. New Armory Rules Unpopular Blues' Social Club BallPlans of the Naval Reserves. All the members of the state National Guard do not take kindly to the new regulaions recently put in force at the armory. These forbid smoking or loit ering on the floor of the armory, while privates are excluded from the armory and company roomB entirely on Sun day. Captain Allen does not find it difficult to enforce the orders of the adjutant general in the matter, but while the men render the obedience which mili tary discipline requires, it is evident that many look upon the rules as a hardship imposed upon them. After the drill of the Horse Guard last evening the new orders were read to the company. One of the officers of, the company remarked upon the hard ship of the rule and expressed the opin ion held by many others that as the rules would tend to cut oft the social life of the armory, always one of the strong attraction for enlisting men in the National Guard, it would insomuch injure the National uuara. Captain Allen says that since the or ders were Issued he has had occasion to speak to only one man about smok ing in the armory. Singularly enough the one man was an officer, who prob ably had not committed the rules to memory. The armory with its new coat of paint and kalsomine looks better than it has for a long time. The regular meeting of the Blues will be held Thursday evening and also their first drill of the season. Captain Smith will, without doubt, be reinstated, to the great satisfaction of the entire com-PI"'- . . . . . .. ....

Tile drill work or tne D'irst division oi the Naval Battalion began last evening by drilling the new recruits, of which there are n dozen or so in sauads last evening. The division now has eighty men, four short of its full quota. The list will probably he soon filled, as there are several applications now waiting to De voted upon. Lieutenant -Goodrich nronoses that thL division shall be thoroughly drilled this sea son in tne now navy regulations. xne Detrv officers win De instructed in these regulations at a drill for their bene fit Wednesday night. On Friday night the regular weekly drills commence. The new navy regulations Include instruc tion in both infantry and artillery prac tice, boats, ship routine and seamanship, arming boats, wall sealing and single stick. These orders will be digested one by one by the officers and men. The division exneet. to crive their annual ball some time this winter and games wlV do planned lor. 'inere will be no basket ball teams as the sport has been forbidden In the armory. Probably none of l the communes will or ganize teams this season. : " xne ennncnge sent to tuo second division of Hartford for a signalling contest some time ago has not been responded to as yet. PREPARING FOR HILLHOUSE;' Coach Tompkins Must Have Help The New Britain Team Anxious. Yesterday's New Britain Herald says: . , , 'The high school football team and itsj tutors will devote the five days of this week previous to the championship game on Yale field, New Haven, Sat urday, to preparations for a successful onslaught on the Hillhouse high school eleven, who have grouped themselves in formidable array about the prized Yale. cup, never yet held by the New Haven school and twice the reward of victory by N. B. H. S. Hillhouse was defeated in '93, and the New Britain team has just as excellent a chanoe this year. Coach Tompkins said as much to a Her ald reporter after the game with Hart ford Saturday. The coach will have lots of assistance in his work this week at least he ought to have it, and if New Britain is going to win he must have it. 'Abbott, one of the Yale 'Varsity end men, will be one of those whom the team's supporters will secure. It is conceded that Captain Burke's men can play dashing football. Their interfer ence has never Deen Detter or tneir team play better followed out. But in the Hillhouse team they will meet heavier and older set of players, who have been coached by such men as San- ford, John Hall and half a dozen other Yale experts. This week it is stated that each man on the Hillhouse team will have a coach to himself. He will need it, whatever the result of Satur day's game. One thing is certain it won't be a 70 to i shot. "The local squad needs more time to practice. All the week past the practice time has dwindled away to less than half an hour, this on account of dark ness. The team will have to play two thirty-flve-minute halves Saturday and they should have an hour's practice each afternoon this week. The greatest attention will be paid to finishing off Hunt and Judd, the ends. Hillhouse house has a bulky center, their guards especially being very heavy, and Cop ley, Stevens and Sullivan will doubt less have the opportunity of putting to use all the advioe they can get this week. "The interest in the contest locally is even greater than last year, as the re suit as far as this city was concerned a year ago was a foregone conclusion. The team will have lots of rooters Sat urday."

G. DAVIS, New Haven, Conn. IROQUOIS CONFEDERATION. President Smith's Paper Concerning the Six Nations, President Smith of Trinity college read an Interesting paper November 2, at Hartford, under the auspices of the Connecticut Historical society, giving a detailed review of "the Six Nations'! or the Iroquois confederation. When the French first knew them they con sisted of five nations: The Mohawks, the fiercest of all Indians, the Oneldas, Onondagas, Cayugas and Senecas, These Indians were pure children of na ture and their language shows that they had no reflection. Ferocity was cultivated as an accomplishment. President Smith paid a tribute to the Dutch for their patience, perseverance and just treatment of the Indians, treating them as men. When the English overcame the Dutch in 1664 they sensibly cultivated the friendship of the Indians, Influenced doubtless by the Dutch. The sufferings of the French Jesuits at the hands of the Iroquois and the magnanimous conduct of the Dutch at Albany were shown. President Smith's paper was a carefully prepared, phllo Bophtcal history of the connection of the Six Nations with the contest be tween the French and English for the control of this continent, and received a vote of thanks from the society. At the business meeting the society voted its approval of the course of Charter Oak historical lectures to be given for the Instruction of pupils of the public schools. " J. HAMMOND TRUMBULL. The following minute regarding1 the late Hon. J. Hammond Trumbull was adopted. It was prepared by a com mittee consisting of Dr. Charles J. Hoadly, Dr. Samuel Hart and Frank B. Gay: "The Connecticut Historical society takes the earliest opportunity of plac ing upon record a tribute of respect to the memory of the Hon. James Ham mond Trumbull, LL. D., for more than twenty-five years its president and long one of its most honored and valued members. Conspicuous as he was for his learning In various departments of knowledge, he will always be remem bered for his wide acquaintance with the history of this colony and state, and for the contributions which he made to its published annals. While others will gratefully acknowledge their indebted ness to him in other matters, this socie ty honors him as a historical student of rare ability, unwearied patience and investigation, and great clearness and accuracy of statement. And the socie ty desires to convey to his family the assurance of respectful sympathy." IRitmueittl. Prices Fluctuated Widely Showing; Fever- - inh Tone of Speculative Mind. New York, Noy. 8. Prices of stocks fluctuated very widely -find very easily, traversing" a range up and down many times in the course "of the day. This in dicated a feverish tone of the specula tive mind, a readiness to dispose of holdings on a slight intimation of possi ble unfavorable developments and an equally nervous anxiety ore the part of short sellers to cover their contracts on any appearance ofia, hardening tenden cy In the market. The most formida ble event in the day's happenings so far as any effect on values was concerned was the further postponement of the announcement of the supreme court's decision in the Nebraska maximum freight rate case, which had been con fldently expected to-day. There has been assurances felt in "Wall street cir cles that the verdict In this case would be favorable to the railroads, but if a favorable verdict Wd been announced to-day profit taking would probably have led to declines in the stacks af fected. The news of the postponement led to the circulation of rumors that the verdict would affirm the validity of the contested statute. This rumor In duced much selling. Special weakness was induced also in tha, coalers by the very discouraging reports of the condi tion of that Industry due to over pro duction, cutting of prices and the per sistent mild weather. There was not lacking the stook Spanish war scare, which was made to do duty again to day. These demoralizing factors did not begin to be felt until some slight improvement over Saturday's close had been effected In prices, Sugar leading the way. There was a notable im provement, also from the low point be fore the close of the day due to cover ing of shorts and on a supreme court decision against the interstate com merce commission as to the regulation of rates under the long and short haul olause where water rates are in compe tition. In consequence of this rise at the opening and Improvement at the close net declines are much diminished. Spirits preferred was the first stock to exercise an unsettling influence on the market with a slump of 614 points on newB of the failure of the Kentucky DiBtillers' combination. New Jersey Central registered an extreme decline of 5,St. Jose and Grand Island 1st pre ferred 5, Delaware and Hudson and Manhattan 4' each, Sugar 4, Omaha and Lake Shore 3, Cotton Oil, Leath er preferred, Pittsburg, C, C. and St. Louis preferred and Illinois Steel from 3 to ZVt each, and Burlington, Pittsburg C, C. and St. Louis, Chicago Gas, Mis souri Pacific, Reading 1st preferred.IIli nols Central, Northwest and other prominent stocks from 2 to 2, the lat ter in Burlington, as being largely af fected by the Nebraska maximum freight law. St. Paul was quite nota bly firm on London buying and a num ber of other stocks were also bought quite steadily for London account at the decline. Sugar was very active throughout the day and was quite sen sitive to attack. Detroit Gas was a notable exception in the weakness of the lisi with a net gain of 7Va points. Cotton Oil gained 2 net.
