1 RIOT IN WALLINGFORD (Continued from First Page.) not be reached by telephone. Captain Hall of Company K of the Second regi ment, which Is a Wallingford company, was attempting to Quiet the mob and tried to muster his) company, but it Is said that he could get but three mem bers. The mob yelled tauntingly to Deputy Sheriff Booth, "Yes, call out the militia; they are on our side." Finally Captain Hall, Deputy Sheriff Booth and some of the law-abiding cit izens decided to take heroic measures. They therefore formed a double line as a guard and told the X.av and Order men that they could pass out through this double line, which would protect them from the mob. The besieged men accordingly came out of the stable and started. But they had gone only about forty feet from the barn when the guards were brushed aside and then for a half mile the Law and Order men were compelled to run the gauntlet. Stones and clubs rained upon them by the howling mob, but finally they elud ed their tormentors, receiving no seri ous Injuries, only some bad bruises which will make them sore and lame for some time. -" While besieged in the barn the Law and Order men kept their revolvers in their hands ready to defend themselves In. case of a rush on their fortress, and during their esqape they carried drawn revolvers, but fortunately refrained from firing, despite the great provoca tion. ' Because of the riot, by request of Justice Judd the liquor found in the blind tiger was not confiscated, and only enough was taken for evidence. Secretary Thrasher last night refused to give the names of the six men ar rested In Wallingford and also refused to give the names of the seven detec tives who with Messrs. Beach and Me Claire composed the raiding party. He said that he had been informed that some of the Wallingford officers and citizens have the names of the ring leaders of the mob and that he would go to Wallingford this morning, secure these names and then go at once to Hartford, where he would lay the mat ter before the governor, Mr. Thrasher said: "If there Is a law in Connecticut to apply in this case it will be applied, or I will know the reason why. The same thing was tried on us when we made the big raid at Meadow's End not long ago, but the crowd there was not large eiiough to do what was done by the Wallingford mob to-day. I was warned before the raiding party went to Wallingford that there would be trouble there. , I wish to say that the warden, constables, Captain Hall and several citizens did all they could to quell the riot, but I understand that one policeman sided with the mob. That raid was perfectly legal. The men have commissions from the gov ernor, given under the terms of the charter of the Law and Order league, passed by the legislature, and they were in the performance of their duty when they were attacked by the mob. They had to submit to that danger while doing their duty, and it is a won der they were not killed. Yes, sir, after 1 go to Wallingford I am going right to the governor as fast as a train will car ry me, and see what can be done." (By Associated Press.)' ", ," Wallingford, Oct. 16. Never has this borough been excited as it has been to day. It was occasioned by a raid made by the Law and Order league, and at one time a riot seemed imminent. In fact, it is asserted that the raiding offi cers pulled their revolvers on the as sembled crowd, and. it is known that one timid person among the assembled numbers asked that the military be called out, but this last demand was not complied with and the matter finally wound up without any bloodshed, but, according to the statement of Secretary Thrasher of New Haven, will result in interesting developments. According to Secretary Thrasher, there have been several violations of the Sunday law, which have been ig nored by the local authorities, and as ej. sequence a number of the prominent prohibitionists- assembled and decided to invoke the assistance of the State Law and Order league. As the results of the efforts made by the local people Secretary Thrasher met Dwight Tuttle, the prosecuting attorney, with the re sult that Justice Judd of the borough swore out three complaints. The raid to-day was made upon Denny Rogers, at the corner of . Center and Colony streets, and besides the bartender sev eral persons were found drinking in the place and they were put under arrest. The raid was made about 9 o'clock this morning under the auspices of Agent McClaire, who conducted the noted Mil ford raid and others in several parts of the state. The time proved very In opportune, for when the fact was made known it required but a short while when fully five hundred people gather ed about the saloon and the so-called "spotters" were hissed and hooted and treated so boisterously that when Agent McClaire came out he thought it was necessary for protection to- draw his revolver, but no violence was at tempted, though the crowd did not hes itate to express their opinion of "spot ters." Agent McClaire and his deputies finally reached the livery stable of Mr. Booth, and inasmuch as the crowd fol lowed the Law and Order league men, Mr. Booth, who is a deputy sheriff, felt obliged to read the riot act. The story can be briefly told by saying that Wal lingford was more than excited. There was no clash of authority, and there will be more than sensational court de velopments If Secretary Thrasher keeps good his promise. The several persons caught In the saloon were each held under $25 bonds for appearance in the local court to-morrow. FELL IN AN EPILEPTIC FIT. John Mullen Caused Commotion on Orange Street. A man who later gave the name of John Mullen fell in an epileptic fit at the corner of Orange and Bishop etreets yesterday afternoon. He was surrounded by a large crowd and the police wagon was summoned and he was taken to police headquarters. He revived somewhat there and gave a street and number where he said he Jived. He was taken ther In the police wagon, but the people of the house claimed not to know ifim. He was taken back to the police station, where he said he lived on Rosette street and was able to walk home. Ho was al lowed to go. HASHISH OUSTS OPIUM. Disappearance of the Old-Time Opium Joints Their Former Frequenters Now Take Hashish Effects of the Drug It Annihilates Time and Space Gives a Man Blissful Moments, But at the Expense of Health. "Fill this prescription as quickly as as you can, please. I'll take It here with a little soda." The speaker was a short, fat, young man, whose face was bloated and bad ly splotched, while his eyes wera streaked with alternate red and yellow. His expression was soddenly dull. As he handed the piece of paper on which the prescription was written across the counter his hand shook violently. The proprietor of the little Sixth ave nue drug store in which the young man stood read carefully the prescription. Evidently it was a genuine one, for he nodded assent, and turned to the long stretches of Latin-labelled bottles be hind him. One long, slender vial waa soon in hia grasp. It contained an opaque liquid of a dark and sinister green color. Reaching for a gradua ting glas3 the druggist poured out a small quantity and was about to trans fer it to a tiny goblet when the bloated young man, whose congested eyes had assumed an evanescent brilliancy, re strained him with an impatient excla mation: "Don't," he cried eagerly, "don't waste time give it to me at once." In a twinkling the liquid, which emit ted a strong and disagreeable odor, re turned the graduating glass and drained a goblet of soda which tha druggist thrust into his trembling hand. "Give me back the prescription, doc tor," said the customer, as he paid for the drug and began to totter . feebly from the shop, "I'll be in. for another dos.e this evening." Outside the drugstore the young man sought the support of a convenient lamp-post, against which he leaned for a minute or two. Then straightening up, and a most wonderful transforma tion took place. : All evidences of de creptitude vanished. The sodden dull ness of his expression disappeared and was. replaced, by keen sensibility and intelligence. His baggy form seemed to undergo alterations arid to conform more closely with those lines of phy sique which one would naturally ex pect to find in a person of his youth and development. This metamorpho sis complete, away, he started at a brisk pace and was soon ingulfed by the hurrying throng of passers-by. "Jekyl and Hyde," murmured the re porter who had witnessed the transfor mation and foregoing .Incidents. "What is the matter with that young man alcohollism?" "No," replied the druggist, as he re turned the bottle of green fluid to Its shelf, ."he is one of New York's thou sands of hashish eaters. Hashish, aa yoj perhaps know," he continued di dactically, "is a preparation of . hemp professionally known as Canabis Indi ca. It is a narcotic, further reaching in its pernicious influences than any form of opium you may name, indeed it has succeeded opium in the favor of those who are constantly in search of new sensations. "Ten years ago New York was filled with opium dens, many of which were palatial. Fortunes were expended in fitting out a single joint, in creating a fairyland-like environment to corres pond with the roseate visions supposed to visit those who hypnotized them selves with the fumes ; of opium. Where are those joints to-day? Where are .those exclusive dens that catered to patrons who wished to indulge the vice in assured and luxurious seclu sion? They have disappeared one and all. Only miserable, filthy joints in side streets and remote purlieus are now running. It is not that a wave of reformation has swept the high-class places away, but the one-time frequenters and sup porters of exclusive opium joints have undergone a change of affections. They have taken up hashish as a means of more thoroughly satiating their appetites. "Many of the opium eaters who have discarded that narcotic for hashish are men of keen sensibilities. Some are men of a high order of intellect and in telligence. It is to such persons that the effects of hashish appeal with greatest fascination. It distorts the fancy far more than opium, and the imagery begot of it when first used is more kaleidoscopic and "pleasing than any form of opium gives. "It has been contended by an astute philosopher that true happiness will only be possible when time and space are abolished. Well, this is what hashish temporarily accomplishes. It svxeeps from the mind all idea of chro nological division; it eliminates the appreciation of space, and conquers geographical distances in the mind of the eater with electrical rapidity. So time and space, mentally no longer in existence, the budding hashish eater finds that all things of earth contrib ute to his pleasure and that life is one long reign of ecstatic joy. A wonder ful metamorphosis takes place in fa miliar surroundings. A tiny ball-room expands into a vast palace of marvel ous beauty; a rubbish-filled back yard becomes a tropical garden. A street is no longer a mere tumultuous thor oughfare, it is a papulous world. But that, remember, is only in the hashish eater's novitiate,, when the drug ap peals most entirely to his mental facul ties. Habitual use makes it a physical need or craving, and then the halluci nations, less picturesque and pleasing, often end in hideous, terrorizing vis ions which drive the victim into the madhouse or the grave." "Do you know of any hashish joints in New York?" asked the reporter. "I have heard there are two or three," answered the druggist, "but certain peculiar properties of the drug narcotic make such places unnecessa ry. When a man first begins to eat hashish he finds he has no need to re pair to a secluded place in order to prevent friends and associates from discovering the fact. He can load up with a good-sized dose and go about his usual employments without any one being the wiser. There will be nothing extraordinary in his actions and he will conform strictly with the usual routine of his daily movements. In fancy he may be traversing the wilds of Africa, may be gliding through the skies in a balloon five miles from earth, but, at the same time, he is able to conduct a conver sation with an unhashished friend without betraying his visionary flights. In fact, a man under the influence of the narcotic figuratively, and frequent ly consciously, leads a dual existence. He is sufficiently aware of his physical actions to separate them from the ever-varying movements of his dis torted fancy. "One curious thing hashish does for its victim is to deprive him of horizon. As I said, he loses all appreciation of space, and thus objectB at a distance and those at hand have the same rela tive value In his mind. Everything appears to him In a beautiful vista, whether ho contemplates actual and physical occurrences or disports amid the pleasures of fancy's realm. , "A young friend of mine, who, as an experiment, took a big dose of the fluid extract, a form in which hashish Is usually administered, told me that within ten minutes he was amazed to see the street suddenly broaden and the houses fall away until the horizon became vague and finally altogether indeterminate. He also imagined that his movements were impeded by a re markable slowness which he was pow erless to overcome, Btrlve as he would. After many years of travel, according to his distorted imagination and loss of chronological sense, my young friend arrived at the grounds in the rear of the American Museum of Natural His tory and sat down to rest. He was perfectly aware of his' locality, but was very much surprised to find that the aspect of things had greatly al tered since a previous visit. The shrubbery, formerly of a very uninter estlne character, had given place to brllliant-hued tropical foliage, and the paths which once were made of com , mon gravel now were filled with beau I tiful precious stones which glanced 1 and glittered with a thousand irides cent lights. It struck him as some thing very similar that the -.municipal authorities should have become so prodigal in public adornment, but, nev ertheless, after surreptitious glances to make certain he was unobserved, he improved the opportunity to load hl3 pockets with diamonds, pearls, rubies, sapphires, opals and topazes. "Shortly after acquiring this treas- ' ure he fled to Japan in his mind and remained there some two or three years studying the customs and habits of the people.. This journey he subse quented with a tour of Europe, finish- j ing up in Parts for purposes education al. He took in Africa on his way home to the United States, and inci dentally visited Khartoum to learn the mysteries of that late Dervish strong hold and render valuable assistance to the British army by reporting his ob servations. "In the meantime he was fully con scious that a part of him was sitting j on a bench in the rear of the museum, ' and it occasioned him no surprise to find himself there once more in the , whole. Recollecting an engagement to call on a young woman, and feeling confident that that social duty could be performed without betraying his hyp notized condition, he left the gtounds and repaired to her home. Some months after his admission to the re-' ception room the young woman en tered, and he rose to acknowledge her presence with a bow. It took him sev- eral mental days to accomplish this simple ceremony, but his dual con i sciousness advised him that he did it with the proper physical dispatch. For several weeks they talked, and my young friend was beginning to specu late as to how many more would elapse before it would be good form for him to take his departure, when suddenly and to his great dismay he seemed to rise from his chair and sail upward to : the ceiling. Attaining this very unu I sual position for a well-conducted I youth unused to acrobatic exercise, his dismay gave way to astonishment, for . he found himself looking down on him self, that is, his astral body was sus pended in mid-air and contemplating his physical body, which remained erect and sedate in a chair and con versed with the young woman on topi cal things in the most ordinary way. "Now, the physical body was aware of the extraordinary actions of the as tral body and became uneasy, as it feared the young woman might look aloft and discover the astral body floating about her cornices and playing the part of an eavesdropper. It was also worried for fear the astral body might not come down in time to ac company the physical body home. But that strange consciousness that pro tects the hashish eater from divulging his real condition came to his rescue, and thus assured, he talked on and on as if things were normal. - 1 "The astral body did eventually abandon the cornices and take itr place inside the physical body. This accom plished, my friend concluded to run no rish of a separation while the young woman was around and tiok his de parture. He returned to my shop by a long and devious mental route which embraced most of the geographical points not included In his first journey abroad. When he arrived, he called for a neutralizer. He waited patiently, he said afterward, for a week or so, but I heeded him not. A second time he demanded relief, and waited many days with the same negative results. He repeated his demands five or I six times, until I had to beg of him to de sist, for he was tumbling them out In a convoluted string which gave no opening for a reply.- But he was not aware how rapidly he spoke, so well in hand did the hashish have him by that time. . - "I gave him a large dose of lemon juice, which is a good neutralizer of hashish, and soon he was once more mentally clear. Then from his pockets I dumped the gravel which he had amassed at the grounds In the rear of the museum and sent him home to sleep. There were no consequent evil effects and seldom are after the first dose of the narcotic. "Some men who use hashish regular ly and who come under my observa tion are excited to pugnacity by the drug. Others, and, indeed, the majori ty, sink into dreamy contemplation, in- FRANCO AMERICAN SOUPS.

Telephone 158. cline to motiveless gayety or maudlin sensibility. Nearly all habitual hash ish eaters become unnaturally active und restless. In the last stages a drowsy stupor is characteristic, also restless muscular movements, more or less Insensibility to pain and touch, and very often impaired power of lo comotion. Hashish carries with it a voracious desire for food. The invari able physical, end is blotched and bloated faces, congested eyes, and weak and tremulous limbs. It gradu ally paralyzes both mental and physi cal energies, and is far more difficult to cure than the opium habit. "Hashish is a poison, and is sold only by prescription. But you know how easy it is to obtain a prescription for anything in New York, and how easy it is for any person with a smattering of Latin to sit down and write one which, having the appearance of genu ineness, the druggist cannot refuse to fill. "Several of the confirmed hashish eaters who come to my shop," conclu ded the druggist, "have fallen slaves to the drug through constantly using it to allay neuralgic pains. There are hun dreds of sufferers in New York whose only relief from this most unbearable of all pains is hashish, and so they soon contract the habit which is seldom re linquished until inevitable death or madness claims them." New York Sun. ARTIFICIAL EYES. The Lancet publishes some curious facts with regard to the number of false eyes, which are turned out annu ally by different factories in Germany and Prance. The total of these orna mental appendages made in the Ger man empire is said to amount to the enormous total of two millions yearly; and, at the same time, one French fac tory, out of many, makes three hun dred thousand In the same pe riod. But we must not jump to the conclusion that these figures indicate in any way the number of human be ings who have been deprived of the sight of one eye, for the artificial eyes include those , used by wax-figure makers, by taxidermists, and even by the doll manufacturers. It is note worthy that the totally blind never wear false eyes. The person who has been deprived of the sight of one eye sees his disfigurement whenever he looks into a glass, and his aesthefic sense or perhaps his vanity leads him to make good the deficiency In the best way he can. In the case of the wholly blind such feelings die out, or are submerged in the Immensity of their loss. Chamber's Journal. REVENUES OF THE CITY OF LON ' DON. Limited as is the extent of the ancient city of London, its revenues are on a vast and lordly scale. An abstract account of the produce and expenditure of the City's estate com monly called "City's cash" for the year ending December 81, 1897, showed that the receipts amounted to 1,015, 257 14s. 5 l-2d. The expenditure amounted to 1,004,048 9s. 7d. The ac counts form a printed volume of 323 pages. Household Words. RAID ON ASHMTJN STREET. Patrolmen Taylor and Recor of the Dixwell avenue station yesterday morn ing made a raid on Patrick Lee's sa loon at 166 Ashrpun street. They found four men drinking bottled beer in S. room just over the saloon. When the policemen entered the men attempted to throw the beer out of the window. The facts will be made known to the prosecuting attorney. ; . MODERN WARFARE. Omdurman has taught us a fearful lesson of the possibilities of modern warfare, it may be said that the Der vishes threw 'their lives away by im petuous onslaught, and that no civili zed power would have exposed its sol diers to a fire such as was faced by the Khalifa's brave followers; but the aw ful destructiveness of new weapons has nevertheless received a lasting and biKud-curdling proof. The Lyddite shells, Maxin guns, and repeating rifles of to-day may to-morrow be discarded for instruments still more diabolical in their power of destroying human life. The next Europen conflagation, the first encounter of two civilized na tions under new conditions, will be a stupendous revelation some of the effects of which have already been foreshadowed by Omdurman-4as to the import of the vast system of military organization which has been forced upon the rival powers of the west. We shall find the combatants handling, colossal armies such as have never before been put in the field; and with this multiplication of war materials will come an increased strain on the tactical genius of those in supreme command. . These huge numbers will bring fresh complications in their train. The points of simultaneous attack or de fence will be largely increased, and it will become more difficult than ever to keep the threads in the mind of one directing intelligence. With in creased numbers must be reckoned the formidably augumented difficulty of transport and the provision of an ade quate medical staff. Then it must be remembered that these stupendous armies will be provided with weapons which are being rendered more deadly year by year; that they will fire out of machine guns and repairing rifles pro jectiles and bullets against which no ordinary means of shelter are proof and which inflict wounds that no sur gical skill can remedy. To expose troops to this leaden storm - would mean instant annihilation; a charge of the Light Brigade under modern condi tions would be an impossible feat neither horse nor trooser could get within three hundred yards of the enemy's lines. War will, in fact, be a game of chess. An elaborate series of manoeuvres will lead up to a possibly bloodless victory. The most skilful strategist will win the day by sheer military science. No general will dare to place a battalion within range of the enemy's guns. ft. hideous mistake on the part of a com manding, officer would result in a car nage that might instantly annihilate a regiment; and by a blunder of the staff the entire forces of a nation might be wiped out of existence in ten minutes. That is ihe appalling prospect which stares civilization in the face to-day. London Saturday Review. ;timtia:tl. .win i, HIVu. .U.l JiAfc i'.
