Pages 9 to 12. Part 2. NEW HAVEN, CONN., THURSDAY JANUARY, 25, 1906. IS AN UNUSUAL ARTIST. CAMPANARI PLAYS 'CELLO AS WELL AS HE SIXG& Hot Only That, But Was a Skilled Pi anist Yenrs Ago This is Why the Baritone Sings So Understundinisly and So Wonderfully. Campanari, the fascinating baritone, who is to give a song recital in Wool Bey hall on the evening of Thursday, February 1, is a remarkable man, as well as one of the greatest baritones of our day. He ia a skilled vlolincellist, and at one time played first 'cellist in no less a band than the Boston symphony. He played divinely, say those who heard him at the time, and was often heard in solos. ' It is because of this that Campanari sings with so much greater feeling and with so much more variety of expres eion than do most barittones. He is a rare musician. It has been eald that thfs singer's song recitals are as diverting as is an evening at the opera. He can't sing without acting, and even the most phlegmatic among his audience is thrilled by his dramatic intensity. For example on has never heard the roua. Ing Toreador sons from Bizet's "Car men" as it ought really to be sung until one hears Campanari sing it. He has the power to bring the bull light before your very eyes, and the entire sumptuous picture of the arena, shouting crowd and all. His programme for next week is to be a most beautiful one, and as this great singer always gives of his best, this recital arranged by the university department of music, under the direc tion of the New Haven Symphony or chestra, is bound to be a very good mu sical fea3t. Seats will be placed on sale on Tues day and Wednesday, January 30 and 31; and on February 1 at Stelnert's Sons Co. all day, and at the Woolsey hall box office from 11 to 1 o'clock. Popular prices will be charged and even the lowest priced seat will be re served. Twenty-five cents discount will be given to holders of Symphony con cert course tickets and to the universi ty extension lectures. EVENING SCHOOL 'GRADUATION.

When Jason Conklin to Idahoe went Because his Uncle for him sent Saying there was a chance for a smart young man, Through all the Village the tidings ran, And all said We are sorry Jase must go Far out to the Wilds of Idahoe. Now Jason had a loving heart And from me he did hate to part, For he and me had been lovers fond Since the day when I fell Into Briggses Pond. He dragged me out at the risk of his life And I promised to be his own dear wife. c Oh how could I let my Jasie go Far out to the Wilds of Idahoe. The night we parted we stood at the gate Until the Moon rose very late, And ma come out and begun to scold And said I would catch my death a cold, But when she saw we were bathed in tears She tried to comfort our mournful fears, i Saying Jase will lov,e you still I know Though he is far in the wilds of Ida hoe. We parted I thought my heart would break, With sighs and fears to my bed did I take. But the World rolls on though Hearts are torn, I had to rise early the very next morn, But the butter would not come for my thoughts you know Were far on the road to Idahoe. My Jason wrote to me. every week He said he was so homesick he could not sleep. He did not like the folks or the place, He wished he could see my smiling face, If he once more to the east could get He never would go west again you bet, He would stay in our town the rest of his life With me his dear and loving wife, For never would he ask me to go Far off to the Wilds of Idahoe. Now when years two were passed and gone I thought of course Jase was coming on, For that was 'the time we had sot to be wed, But he sent me a loving letter instead Explaning why he could not leave And telling me not to worry and grieve. Said he in a year I will come I know To take my bride to Idahoe. Another Tear passed slowly away And I might of married Abner Bray, Or two other young men who lived near our place, ' But my heart was still truly attached to Jase, Who wrote to me, Propare any time to go To a home In beautiful Idahoe. Six years have passed and still I wait. I know not what was my Jason's fate, His lonely grave I never shall see For it is thousands of miles away from me. He could not be false, he Is dead I know, , Far out in the Wilds of Idahoe. Last month a man from the West was vlsMT gl,ag Geer o...... Jl , tn B1,-...l .if life. He told them a lot of yarns tt".it show How the Truth Is not respected in Idahoe. . , . Trmnn fnnlrlin ho saiA who oame from Connecticut and bai a tow head, Snubby nose and a big round face, That was not much like my handsome Jase, He does not amount to shucks says he, And Annabelle Qeer came straight and told me. He said Conklin's wife was pretty and slack, And thuir house Was only a miner'B shack, They had a few acres or rocky ground, And a crowd of children were cryins around For he married a Widow with three or four, An since this marriage there were others more. He was not of any account he said, Now was this the man I expected to wed? My Jason Conklin it can not be For few young men were as smart as he, My Jasou Conklin it can riot be, For if he is alive he Is engaged to me, But he lies in a grassy gravs t kr ow, Far off in ..he 'Wilds of Idaho,, And Abner Gray is a bachelor still, And wants me to marry him, maybe I will.

By a Former Resident Who Was born in the House Sold at Auction April 11. New Haven, Conn., April IS, 1892. To the Editor of the Register: I see by an article In your paper that the old landmarks at the lower end of State street were sold at auction on the 11th Inst. Please allow one who was born and who lived all the early part of his life In the frame house mentioned, some few reminiscences of that and the brick house and vicinity of fifty and sixty years ago, and which may be In teresting to young as well as old -of New Haven. The frame house was built by John Chatterton about 1800 and first occupied by him when he married and moved into it in 1810. His wife Elizabeth was the daughter of a cele brated sea captain of those days, and It is inscribed on his tombstone In the Grove street cemetery that he made one hundred and eleven foreign voy ages, which was considered a great achievement In those days, particularly as some of them were sealing voyages to the Pacific ocean. Mr. Chatterton received his mercantile education with Isaac Tomlinson, a wholesale merchant, who was instrumental In building the bridge so long known by his name over the river at the steamboat dock. Then Mr. Chattert.on united himself with Joseph Bishop, in those days a first class tailor, and commenced business in the old frame house under the firm name of Chatterton & Bishop. They were successful. Mr. Bishop married a daughter of Benjamin Prescott, of Prescott & Sherman, In the West India trade and Sherman was a son of the signer of the declaration of-Independence. Mr. Bishop was also captain of the old artillery company that was called out so frequently in the war of 1812 and all one summer In camp on the Oyster Point quarter. During that war they built the brick hounet intending to move into It when finished, but it cost so much In consequence of the war and high price of everything and the stock of goods they were carrying, that when peace was declared In the spring of 1816 and the great drop came they failed, and the brick house passed into the hands of Prescott & Sherman, who held a mortgage on it, and they afterwards sold It to Le Grand Cannon. Captain Bishop broke down completely and af terwards died, but Mr. Chatterton paid the debt, principal and Interest, tout It took ten years to do It; things are not done in that way in these days; Mr. Chatterton moved to Chapel street and took as a partner Avery C. Babcock, the brother of the founder of the New Haven Palladium, under the firm name of Chatterton & Babcock, and pros pered until his death in 1834. Old Fleet street in those days was a residential street, and yet a busy one, for it was around the head of the wharf old Custom House Square and on the wharf the great business of the .town centered. There were four tav erns near by the Eagle tavern, still standing, and two In Fleet street, one now the Durant house, and the celebra ted Bulford tavern, corner of Union and Water streets, long since gone. Some of the best citizens resided on Fleet, Water, Meadow and Whiting streets. On Fleet street John and Samuel Chatterton, Le Grand Cannon, George Rowland, Deacon Whittlesey of the Center church, Truman Woodward and others, and on Water street James Atwater and Ell Sanford, the father of Judge Sanford, the two houses still re maining. On Meadow street Henry Trowbridge, the founder of the house of H. Trowbridge & Sons. The Totten family, Captain Roswell Trowbridge, Isaac Trowbridge, the father of Daniel; Thomas Atwater, Captain Phlpps, the father of Frank G. and Daniel Goffe Phlpps; Governor Henry W. Edwards, William Mansfield, Russell Hotchkiss, Sr., and afterwards George Hotchkiss; and on Whiting street Allen Prescott and Captain Phlpps Clark, all of whom were held in great respect by their fel low townsmta.

Now Robert Ewene Demands $10,000 From Surgeon. The case of Robert Ewens against Dr. Auffustin A. Crane for ten thou sand dollars damages was begun In Waterbury Monday afternoon in the superior court before Judge MiUan A. Shumway- Attorney James M. Lynch appears for the plaintiff and Attorney Wilson H. Pierce for the defendant, formed two amputations upon him, Ewens claims that Dr. Crane per first taking off part of his hand and then taking off the whole hand. Later he secured Dr. Nelson A. Pomeroy, who found it necessary to make a third amputation. Ewens claimed that there was no necessity of the successive ope rations. In the special defense set up by At torney Pierce It was alleged that ony man in the condition of Ewens would have to undergo the same treatment. He was injured by having a oar wheel run over his hand, filling the wound with coal dust and other foreign mat ter, and besides this he was intoxica ted at the time of the accident, so that it was Impossible to give him ether and treat the injury as it should have been treated. Dr. Crane, It was further set up, did not see the patient until after he was brought from Thomaston to the Waterbury hospital- Dr. George E Ferguson of Thomaston treated Ewens directly after the accident, and decided that owing to his Intoxicated condition It was not practical to amputate. The delay left great 'opportunity for the wound to become infected and there fore to necessitate the successive am pu tat long. GIFT TO YALE NAVY. Morton F. Plant Adds to Gales Ferry Quarters. Morton F, Plant, of Branford house, already so widely known for his munifi cence, has, It is reported, made a gener ous gift to the Yale navy In the form of a plot of land, with the mansion at present standing on It, at Gales Ferry. Mr. Plant was interested in the work of the Yale crews during their annual period of training last summer and be came an enthusiastic supporter of the blue. The members of the crews were entertained on his yacht Venetla upon several occasions. He found out that additional room was much needed at the crews' training quarters at Gales Ferry and, with his characteristic promptness, cast about for a method to supply the need. The property which Mr. Plant donates to Yale is situated close by the present quarters of the Yale navy, and when fitted up for its new purpose will al most double the accommodation lor the J crews. UNITED STATES RUBBER, Parent Company Owns 70 Per Cent, of Rubber Goods Preferred and 90 Per Cent, of Common. The United States Rubber company now owns upwards of 90 per cent, of the common stock of the Rubber Goods (Manufacturing company, besides rath er more than 70 per cent of the pre ferred stock. Of the Issued common stock of the latter concern, $16,941,700 in amount, there Is less than $1,500,000 in the hands of the public, and of the $9,051,400 preferred, less than $2,700,000. The company will continue to ex change its own stocks for those of the Rubber Goods company until May 1, 1906, so it is entirely probable, that it will eventually acquire all of the com mon stock, through which alone the parent company would be able to re ceive' the surplus earnings of the Rub ber Goods company in excess of 7 per cent, on the preferred stock. As a matter of fact, the United States Rubber company has no inten tion of paying a dividend upon Rubber Goods company for a good many years to come. In the first place, the smaller company has between $2,000,000 and $3, 000,000 of bonds of a subsidiary out standing and these will first be paid off out of earnings. After that the surplus will be applied to writing down the book valuation of some of its plants and making improvements in others. The same policy will be pur sued as 'was adopted some years ago by the United States Rubber company Hence it will be easily a matter of three or four years before any ques tion of dividends on Rubber Goods common can come up. For these rea sons, the parent company is not con cerning itself about the acquisition of the minority common stock. Recent estimates of the current earn ings of the Rubber Goods Manufactur ing company and of the equity of the parent company in them, have under stated them- President Dale says that $2,500,000 Is a conservative figure for the earnings of the Rubber Goods com pany in the year ending March 31 next. Of the 633,598 required to pay the pre ferred dividend, the parent company would receive, say, 70 per cent., or $443,518. Owing at least 90 per cent, of the common stock, Its equity In the $1,866,402 surplus over preferred divi dends would be $1,679,762, making a to tal of $2,123,280 to represent the parent company's share of Rubber Goods earnings. The Rubber Goods company owns the Hartford Rubber Works. FINE RECITAL SOON. Will be Given in Christ Qhurch Parish House on January 25.

Danbury, Jan. 24 The Danbury hos pital will receive, a donation of $500 In a day or two, and the means that led to the gathering of the money were novel, to say the least- The whole thing was done on the impulse of the moment, and the hospital will be bene fited to the amount of half a thousand dollars as the result of what started in jest. Four prominent business men of the city were lunching at the Grovelaud the other noon, when the subject of the present effort to raise funds for the hospital oame up. "I'Jl be one of five to give $100 to the hospital," said one of them. "I'll give the same," said another, and the other two agreed to the same proposition. The one who launched the scheme called up a friend on the telephone and in five minutes returned with the news that he had secured the fifth one. The checks were made and posted, and the coffee was drank with a relish. The members of the party which started the contribution were N. Bur ton Rogers, Frank H. Lee, Dr. E. A. Stratton and Harry J. D. Plant The man called up on the 'phone was C. 4, iMaliory. ATHLETICS AND HEALTH. CLAIMS THAT ATHLETES DIE YOUNG REFUTED. Dr. W. D. Anderson Answers These Assertions Deductions From Impor tant Data Secured by Professor Dex ter. Dr. William G. Anderson, director of the gymnasium, than whom probably! no one is better known In his line of ; work, has obtained data to prove that the health of a student after gradua tion is not impaired by his college ath letic training. In support of this theo ry Dr- Anderson says: "The hostile criticism that athletes die young" has been so often made without , definite refutation that it passes for truth among those who mis take rumor for fact. An investigation of the health and longevity of .college athletes must be exhaustive to furnish trustworthy data. Realizing the Im portance of such statistics, Professor Franklin B. Dexter the librarian of Yale, has recently completed the task of collecting the records of 761 athletes who competed in intercollegiate event3 and won their "Y's" on the eleven, the nine, the crew and the track team be- , tween 1855 and 1904. The main, deduc tions from this material are as follows: Of these 761 athletes, 61 have died since graduation. The causes were: Consumption, twelve; pneumonia, four; drowning, six; ' heart disease, two; suicide, two; war and accident, three; died from unknown causes or disappeared, ten; from various diseases (fevers, appendicitis, cancer, diphthe ria, paresis," dissipation, etc) twelve. Of these fifty-one men, eighteen rowed, sixteen played football, eleven .were track athletes and six played baseball. Of the four who were drowned while young are eliminated from the crew ta ble, the average age is raised to 47.1 years. Turning to the 710 living athletes, those who have passed .forty may be thus grouped: ... One hundred and .thirteen are be tween forty and forty-nine years of age; eighty-six between fifty and fifty-nine; twenty-two between sixty and sixty-Jiino. 1 Of the Yale athletics in their latter years, fourteen are between isixty and sixty-five years, one is sixty-five, three are sixty-six, one is sixty-seven, two are sixty-eight and one is sixty-nine-In brief, barring violent deaths, only forty of these 761 Yale athletes,' in a period of nearly fifty years, have been lost from the ranks of the living. It is a widespread opinion- that ath letes are liable to heart trouble, but only two Yale men of this sturdy little army have died from ttrf3 catrsa.t would seem more significant that of the fifty-one deaths sixteen were, due to lung affections (consumption land pneumonia), the sports engaged in' be ing football, six; rowing, four; bate? ball, two; and track athletics, four, it would be unwise to state that ath- ltlc training is a predisposing cause of lung trouble, for they may be only co incident.
