Branford, Jan. 23. The death ol Wil liam S. Schenck, which occurred at the Now Haven hospital Sunday, has creat ed much excitement in this town. The circumstances pointed to foul play. Schenck's torn and bleeding body was found on the trolley tracks at Buckley's corner just after midnight Sunday morning.

Coroner Mix after examining these witnesses In the town hall went to Branford Point to examine another witness. The witnesses examined at the town hall were John Wasland, Charles Gul mas, William Gulmas; Amos William son, William Johnson, Marcus Ander son, and Charles Carlson. Reynolds and McCabe stated that when the left Schenck I was Intercepted, as thought by some, by several others, who were with him during the night, and assaulted him. Coroner Mix was satisfied that the determination of this inquiry had set tled down to the statement of a man named Clark at Branford Point, who boards with Amos Williamson at the Branford house. Williamson stated that , he could Drove that he was at nis boarding house when the fatal wound ing of Schenck occurred, and this state ment to be worth credence was borne out by Clark. The coroner last evening announced that he had concluded his investiga tion and that Schenck's death was ac cidental. , Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock over the re mains of William Schenck.

Scandal Ends in Resignation The Late Town Clerk's Suicide. Bridgeport, Jan. 23. Patrick Mc- Loughlin, Janitor of the city hall, was lcat night requested to resign by Mayor Reynolds as the result of disclosures growing out of the suicide of Town Clerk William S. Schrieber.. It was ac cepted on receipt by the mayor. Asked this morning whether any res ignations by city officials would be ask ed for, Mayor Reynolds said that he had no. information that would lead to such action. 'If you are furnished with charges will you continue the cleaning-out pro cess?" "Sure!" said Mayor ReynoldB. Janitor McLoughlln's resignation came as the result of admission, on his part, to the mayor of intimate relations with Mrs. Schrieber. Mrs. Schrieber yesterday stated that she spent the night before her husband's suicide with McLouehltn and a woman friend. She admits that she drove with him to M.1I ford and drove around until daylight, when McLoughlin took the team home and left her and her woman friend to return by themselves. Ugly rumors have been In circulation concerning Mrs. Schrieber and city offi cials, and these took concrete form yes terday, when a special meeting of the Bridgeport lodge of Elks was called for last night to consider charges against three of its members, each of whom is said to be a city official of prominence, whose names are being bandlftd about in connection with rumors that are sen sational in the extreme. No informa tion was given out to-day regarding the action of the Elks. It IS an unsavory mess all tho way through, and for the sake of the repu tation of the city and the honor of the present administration the leading citi zens are urging that there should be the strictest investigation. There is no other topic on the streets. For certain reasons, naturally, the bal lot box stuffing is brought up in an in cidental way. In regard to the latter phase of it, there are abundant rumors that bench warrants would be Issued for the arrest of certain persons at once. SICK IN LUMBERMAN'S HUT.

Shuberts Reject Tempting Offer of Speculators annt Bernhardt Engagement. ' Refusing an offer of four thousand dollars In cash made iby an entire stranger, Who produced a roll of bills Which looked like it representsd even more money, proves that the managers of Sarah Bernhardt ore confident that the only engagement of the great tra gedienne In N ew Haven will break all records, not only those established in the university town but in any town for a legitimate 'theatrical attraction. Yesterday, a somewhat shabbily dressed man stepped Into the lobby of the Hyperion Theatre of this city and enquired for the local manager, Mr. W. L. Rowland. When he was escorted into the manager's presence he, after a few sparring preliminaries, produced a wallet from somewhere in' the in terior of his shabby clothes and began peeling off one hundred dollar bills and laying them down on top of tho man ager's desk until there was on exhibi tion a pile of yellow backs which caused the heart of the manager to flutter with anxiety. The stranger de clared that there was in the pile four thousand dollars and it looked it. The stranger announced that a syn dicate formed of the New York ticket speculators had sent him up as a dele gate to offer this amount for the entire amount of tickets for the single night to which Madame Bernhardt's engage ment in New Haven is limited and in which she will offer the most popular of all the plays of the entire strong repertolrs which sire is offering on this, her farewell American tour. Following out the .policy - of the Messrs. Shubert, who are not only the managers of the Hyperion Theatre, but who have a half interest with W. F. Connor in the American tour of the great tragedienne, the offer of this syn dicate of speculators was Immediately I ES BUTTER means Butter made without Salt and to.be perfect must reach your table freshly made.
