3 THE MILITARY MANEUVERS SOW IX PROGRESS BETWEEN OUR LAND AND NA VAL FORCES. Interesting Reminiscences Regarding tbe Early Efforts of Connecticut Hen to Secure the Erection of Defences at tbe Eastern Entrance to the Sound. Captain Charles H. Townshend re turned Saturday night from New Lon don where he had spent his time partly with his old shipmate. Captain George Goddard, commanding the U. S. Light house Steamer "Cactus" and afterward with his colleague, Hon. John Ginley, New London's popular postmaster, whose guest he was while making ex aminations of Fishers' Island fortifica tions and the outlook therefrom in the vicinity where the maneuvers were be gun yesterday between the land and naval forces of the United States. Messrs. Townshend and McGinley it should be remembered were members of the Connecticut Board of Trade during Its first session at Hartford, January 2, 1391, and strongly advocated the fortifi cation scheme which had been set on foot by the New Haven (?hamber of Commerce in the early part of the year 1887. They had strongly urged their representations to the National Board of Trade sitting at Washington, D. C, January 18, 1888, to press the great neefl of fortifications at the eastern entrance of the Sound. To preserve the historical record of this matter the following bearing upon the early efforts of Connecticut men to secure these defences is copied ver batim from the proceedings of the eighteenth annual meeting of the Na tional Board of Trade held in the city of Washington, D. C, January, 1888. The New Haven Chamber of Commerce representatives were Hon. N. D. Sperry, Hon. James D. Dewell and Charles H. Townshend. Page 4234 of the repots under "Long Island Sound" is as follows: "The sec retary read proposition VII from the New Haven Chamber of Commerce in regard to the protection of Long Island Sound "viz: Resolved,' "That in view of the large amount of traffic, both coastwise and foreign passing through Long Island Sound adequate fortifications should be placed at its eastern entrance as being the easiest and most direct approach to the port of New York and the harbors of Connecticut. There was some discussion as to whether this proposition should be con sidered by itself, or in connection with the more general one which followed it on the programme. Mr. Smith, of New York: I think it is very important that this proposition should be considered just as it stands. I have served on a committee on harbor defences in New York, and we have had a great many experts bfeore us, and the thought has been that any worthy system of harbor defence, instead of commencing at Throgg's Point, should commence at the east end of Long Isl and Sound and thus protect New Lon-' don, Norwich, Bridgeport and New Haven. It is practicable to erect de fences on Fisher's Island, the little Gull Islands, and on the eastern end of Mon tauk Point that will absolutely defend, so far as such fortifications can defend, the entire system of cities on Long Isl and Sound. Any system of defence which may be adopted for New York city should commence at the extreme eastern end of Long Island Sound, and that is the idea that should be brought before Congress with great distinctness We want to defend ourselves from San dy Hook and Coney Island, but we also want to begin the system of fortifica tions on the extreme east so as to de fend all the cities on Long Island Sound at thei same time. Mr. Townshend, of New Haven: Long Island Sound is an inland sea that can be utilized by foreign navies in case of war. There is no part of the Efound that could not be entered by an enemy's ships in case of war; there is no part of the Sound that does not afford per fect anchorage; ships could come in un der the lea of Long Island and there they could prey on the cities along the coast of New York and Connecticut to our very great disadvantage. The Sound could be used for a much better rendezvous by the enemy than Gar diner's Bay that was used by the Brit ish in the war of the Revolution and of 1812. It is a large roadstead and affords protection under the lea of the differ-' ent headlands in and about the Sound. I think this is a matter that will bear discussion, and time should be taken for its consideration. There will be gentlemen here tomorrow who will be ready to talk on the subject and explain it better than I am able to do. There fore I move you to have it treated sep arately at any rate. Mr. Thurber, of New York: Mr. Nim mo, late chief of the Bureau of Statis tics, has written a somewhat elaborate pamphlet on this subject. He is a na tive of Long Island, and is very famil iar with the topography of that section. On reading his pamphlet I was very much impressed with the feasibility and the necessity of action there. I pre sume there are other places the in habitants of which feel the necessity of fortifications, and my only object in ad vocating the adoption of this resolution as it stands Vould be because of its very great importance. The Govern ment has heretofore fortified Throgg's Neck, which is some ten or twelve miles from New York, but has seemed to overlook the fact that these islands at the eastern entrance of Long Island Sound furnish most feasible and appro priate places for the erection of forti fications. In these days of increased range of projectiles, the distances of places to be protected, from fortifica tions, have to be constantly lengthened. They are now sending projectiles seven or eight miles, and if they keep on we may have to have our fortifications placed at a much greater distance than that from the place we wish protected. But it would seem as if this particular resolution might be adopted separately from the other, although the other is more comprehensive. In viev, however, of the fact that some of Mr. Town ehend's colleagues may like to discuss this matter, I move its postponement until the beginning of our afternoon session tomorrow, and then it can be considered.

James Tlssot, the pictorial artist, died in harness, his "Old Testament Scenes and Events" not being terminated, though three hundred and fifty water color drawings taken from it filled a room at the laso salon. Tissot, in 1854, left Nantes, his birthplace, at the age of eighteen, to study art under Ingres and Flandrln, a religious painter who had then a great vogue. He. acquired from the former a dryness of style that became more apparent as he advanced in life. In working with Flandrln in painting the robes, palms, wings of saints, martyrs and angels, he made clerical acquaintance valuable to him In after life. Ingres had a high sense of the beautiful. Tissot hardly ever rose in that direction above a sense of pret tiness. One sees how well he succeeded in rendering the prettiness of an ingen uous girl in his "Meeting of Faust and MaVgherlta." in the Luxembourg. Tis sot went to London in 1867, and re mained there ten years. He supplied French illustrated journals with elabo rately executed drawings of English sights and scenes, and filled portfolios with water-color sketches which have not yet got Into the picture market. On his return he took a house near the Av enue du Bois de Boulogne, which, In the English way, he covered with creepers. He attempted there to revive portrait painting in colored wax. as practised by the Romans in Egypt in the early cen turies of the Christian era. He also took up. the arts of enamellins metals, of carving statuettes in boxwood, of modelling in terra-cotta, of painting glass for windows, of orfevrerie, and, in short, covered too wide a surface to suc ceed in anything. His exhibition, how ever, of his London sketches and of large Parisian scenes in black-and-white proved a hit. He brought out there a scene he had witnessed in an of ficial salon, the entrance of Madame Gauthereau, "la plus belle femme de Paris." She advances between two files of admirers, who seem to offer her an idolatrous worship, not, however, quite devoid of irony. Tissot then went, at the suggestion of a priest with whom he had become ac quainted at Flandrln's, to work In the Holy Land. Father Didon intended to go there to gather impressions for a life of Jesus. If Tissot could become the Il lustrator of Father Didon's work, he and the author would mutually place each other on a pedestal. Tissot went and worked in the realistic spirit. Trusting to the Immutability of the east, he set down Jesus in the exact sites he sketched and amid the people that he himself saw. As he knew little history, and had not much Imagination, he could not evoke a Palestine inhabited by industrious Jews. Greek colonists, Roman administrators, soldiers and auxiliaries; a Palestine in which flushes of life ran high, and i knew nothing of the Turks; a Palestine which boasted of superb cities., Roman and Herodean and in which the luxurious Cleopatra did not disdain to sojourn. Tissot in tended to set right the great artists of the middle ages and the Renaissance. He flattered himself on having lighted on the real truth so far as the surround ings of Jesus went. He omitted no de tail that could be adduced as circum stantial evidence of the existence of the Saviour as given in the Gospels and traditional lore. The authenticity of the sites conflicted in his illustrations in water-colors touched up with gouache with the legends he had to represent. It would have been much better to in dicate vaguely details of Oriental life than to draw them minutely, and thus clog with their prose all the idealism of the events described in the Gospel and traditionally handed down. In fact, the elaboration of realistic details belittled instead of exalted the Son of Man. Their incongruity startled, and could only satisfy puerile minds. The artist's intention was to free himself from all convention, to advance In the way Rus kin pointed out when he attacked the falsities, as they appeared to him, of Raphael's miraculous draught of fishes, and to enable Christians to realize through his illustrations the true life of Jesus. His carefully executed drawings once more exemplified the saying: "The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life." The Gospel narrative Tissot killed with his paltry details of Pales tine as It is now.Correspondence of the London Daily News. A Definition Little Clarence Pa, what is experience?

Trolley Company Kept Cars Moving on Schedule Time. The immense traffic to and from Sav in Rock was most satisfactorily handled by the trolley company. The motormen and conductors were kept on the alert, and they upheld the reputation of the company for taking care of large crowds. The service was excellent and the cars were kept running on schedule time. The great rush to get back to the city occurred shortly after 7 o'clock, when the excursionists made a rush to reach the Union station. Later in the even ing, between 10 and 11 o'clock, the crowds began to leave the Rock, and the trolleys were crowded. Everybody appeared to be good-natured and at midnight the Labor day visitors at Sav in Rock had been conveyed to their re spective trolley destinations, and the celebration was at an end. HOLIDAY NOTES. Despite the fact that the attendance at all of the resorts was larger than is usual on a holiday, few: accidents of a serious nature were reported. At the Momauguin the. demand for shore dinners exceeded the supply. The day was a record-breaker for this pop ular resort. A large crowd enjoyed the excursion by the Richard Peck to and from the mouth of the Connecticut river. The excursion was carried out tf the entire satisfaction of the several hundred on board: Exceptionally good order was pre served at all the pleasure places and the arrests were few and far between; Even intoxicated persons were conspic uous by their absence. A large force of special officers as sisted at Savin Rock in preserving or der at and near the trolley station. The only tendency toward disorder was in the pushing and jostling of the crowd. The weather was perfect from early morning until late at night, and- the pleasure seekers were in no way ham pered in their plans by contrary weath er conditions. Labor day was celebrated by all class es, and the very general observance' was a source of gratification to the members of the labor organizations. ' " The fact that affairs at Savin Rock will remain in operation for another week or ten days will be agreeably re ceived by the thousands were were pre vented from visiting the resort early in the season.

Arrangements have been concluded whereby the regimental monument of the First Connecticut Heavy Artillery Monument association will be dedicated on September 25. The monument Is to be placed at Hartford. There has been some question over the site. Under the terms of the agreement the legal ques tion as to the disputed ownership and control of the piece of ground north of the capitol will be tried out in tbe courts. Acting under the terms of the agreement, and in order to make it ef fective, Comptroller Chamberlain has designated a new site for the monu ment. This new location is on the southern part of the capitol grounds close to Capitol avenue, and is in the angle formed by the roadway from the southern entrance to the capitol and the walk for pedestrians leading from Trinity street to Capitol avenue. It is almost exactly at the head of Washing ton street. All Best Chocolates are "Trade Marked" t now-a-days.
