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.

SERILLA'S LOVE.
A True Story, Just as Serilla Told It
to Me.
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.

REMINISCENCES OF
FLEET
STREET.
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. X, C,

The swing of the social pendulum is
In the direction of the Hippodrome,
where that modern marvel of produc

cess ever reached. The Hippodrome is
vlelhg with the opera, so far as the
patronage of the socially elect is con
cerned - and when the magnificence,
grandeur and beauty of the production
is considered, the result Is understood,
The loge circle at the Hipp6drome is
occupied nightly with the leaders of so
ciety and box v parties are the latest
fad among the dictators of fashion.
The combination of drama, circus

Naugatuck Rubber Shops are Very
Dull.
Naugatuck, Jan. 24. The local rub
ber factories will close on Thursday
evening for the week, and until further
notice will be run on a four days' per
week schedule.Thfls change has been
made necessary by the unusual open
weather of the season- Not only Is the
depression felt in the manufacture of
heavy cloth-covered goods, but the
e-enprn! demand for Heht rnhlo tnnt.
I wpnr has fallen off to a areat extant
This is a serious patter in a town
that is largely depending on its rub

hoped for the sake of the many fami

that the short time arrangement will
be brief.

THREE OPERATIONS.
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.

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.

DANBURY'S GOOD JOKE.
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. REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS.
