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.
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
Death of Mary street llallbaner. In
Schenectady, X. Y.
The many friends in this city of Mrs.
Mary Streit Hallbauer will much re
gret to learn of her death which oc
curred at the home of her husband, Au
gust F. Hallbauer, in Schenectady, N.
Y., on Sunday night last. She had been
ill for a number of months. She was
the daughter of the late C. Streit who
was for many years leader of Streit's
brass band, this city, which was a
leading band here. She was a sister of
the late Christian Streit, a former
leader of the Second Regiment of New
Haven and later a prominent band
leader of New York, who died a Jew
months ago. She was also a sister of
Simon Streit, one of New Haven's best
known and esteemed police officers.
The funeral services of Mrs. Hallbauer
will be held at Evergreen cemetery
chapel tomorrow afternoon at 4:30
o'clock. Relatives and friends are in
vited to attend. The interment will be
in the family lot.
A Critics Recollection of the French
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

Occurred? Last Evening Funeral 'An
nouncement to be Made Later.
David Sidall died at his 'home, 78 Bris
tol street, lost evening. The end came
shortly after 9 o'clock and was quiet
and peaceful. Mr. Sidall regained con
sciousness but partly before his death
and that was for a very short time. He
was unable to recognize or converse
with those at his bedside, and his death
came as if he had fallen into a deep
sleep. The deceased was seventy-eight
years and six months of age. He is
survived by his wife. The funeral will
be held at a time to be determined later.
The death of Mr. Sidall will cause re
gret among a host of friends through
out the state. He was known to a
large number of friends and acquaint
ances. For many years he was em
ployed m the capacity of a machinist
for the Winchester Repeating Arms
company, and by his shopmates and
employes was most highly esteemed and
respected. He gave up his position
about three years ago because of his
advanced age and had since devoted
himself to the enjoyment of a quiet
home life.
Mr. Sidall was a very active member
of the First Methodist church, at the
corner of Elm and College streets, and
for many years had been known
throughout the state as "Shouting
David." He was very enthusiastic at
all religious meetings and particularly
so at the annual camp meetings at
Plainville. He always gave in the most
interesting and enthusiastic testimonies
and claimed that he was a "shouting
Methodist because he was a happy
one." He was an earnest worker In
church affairs and was an active and
energetic Christian. News of his death
will be received with the Ideepest re
gret by a large circle of acquaintances.
New Britain Man's Nose Broken and
Albert M. Mcrton, a New Britain man,
met, with a painful and rather serious
accident near Short Beach last evening
about 6 o'clock. It seems that he was
riding on one of the front seats of an
open car when a hanger from a trolley
pole fell and struck him In the face.
His nose bone was broken and the flesh
of the nose badly lascerated. The cheek
was torn somewhat and the left arm in
jured. The accident was being investi
gated by the trolley officials last night.
The man was taken to the emergency
hospital. Mr. Morton is a prominent In
surance man of New Britain, and also
the city tax collector.
It was reported late last night that an
automobile had collided with a trolley
car on the line to Savin Rock. The ac
cident is said to have occurred on
Campbell avenue. The extent of the
damaged one could not be estimated.

Labor day has come and gone, and
never in the history of the observance
of that particular day has the recogni
tion of it by the residents of this city
been more general. In the early morn
ing the sun came out, bright and warm.
The people were early astir and about
10 o'clock the streets presented a gen
uine holiday appearance. Excursions
from New Britain and Danbury poured
hundreds of visitors into the city. tMos
of these excursionists spent the fore
noon in the city, visiting the Yale uni
versity buildings and making a general
inspection of the city. Towards noon
the throng started for Savin Rock and
at 12 o'clock the resort was literally
alive with thousands of people. New
Haven sent an Immense delegation to
the Rock. The excursionists were there
In great numbers, and in the general
assemblage were visitors from Meriden,
Wallingford, Hartford. Waterbury,
Bridgeport, Middletown and from many
of the resorts along the sound.
So thoroughly were the streets in the
center of the city deserted in the after
noon that New Haven presented all the
characteristics of Sunday quiet. At ail
the near-by shore and pleasure resorts
were congregated thousands of Elm
City residents, and there were hundreds
at the Branford races. A large corps of
policemen were on duty in and about
the center of the city, and the usual

union, and the union nominee for rep
resentative, Joseph J. Rellly, addressed
the members. Fully seven thousand
union men were present at the day's
celebration. The Labor Day Souvenir
was distributed broadcast. Two thou
sand were left at the Rock, three thou
sand In the city, five hundred were pre
sented to the members of the Trolley
union and the others were distributed
among the members of the various
union organizations.
During the day a collection was taken
up for the striking coal miners In Penn
sylvania and about $200 was subscribed.
The event was a great success and the
labor unionists reaped about $400 profits
on the venture.
The Day Was a Money-Making One for
the Privilege Holders.
Labor day was a great day for the
privilege holders at the Rock. The
crowd spent money freely and the pro
prietors of tlie various amusement
booths and other forms of amusement
did a thriving business. Ail the hotels
and shore-dinner restaurants were
thronged with hungry visitors, and the
bathing houses were at all times filled
with those who were anxious to Indulge
In the pleasures of a salt water plunge.
The band concert in the grove attracted
thousands and every seat was occupied
during the afternoon programme. In
the evening another large crowd enjoy
ed the concert. The theater was filled
at all the performances and the work
of the vaudeville artists was enthusias
tically applauded.
The dance halls were filled with those
who delighted In tripping the light fan
tastic. The steam and naphtha launch
es, running from the end of the pier to
Lighthouse Point and Scanlon's Grove,
were very liberally patronized, and the
day was one of money-spending for the
pleasure seekers and of money-gathering
for the privilege holders, hotel keep
ers and amusement proprietors.

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
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.
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
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.
