NEW IIAVEN, COXyM FRIDAY AUGUST 17 190G THE CAEEINGTON PUBLISIHN"G -CO. r s ' ; J hi n A ' Y NOT EE IN THE DEAL TRANSFER BY THE CONSOLI DATED ROAD OF ITS TROL LEY LINES. Opposition In Massachusetts Lends the Company to Dispone of Its Interests to an Association Known as the New England Security Investment Com panyGovernor Guild of tiie Bay State Took Lead In Fighting the Ab sorption of the Trolley Roads. Boston, Aug. 16. Details of the trans fer by the Hew York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad company of street car systems valued at many millions of dollars, leaked out in this city to-day, and although official confirmation in railroad circles is lacking, it was learn ed that the railroad company had tak en steps to divest itself of practically all of its street car property in South ern New England, The transfer which follows closely on the announced inten tion of the Massachusetts authorities is to retain in this state control of Mas sachusetts street railway corporations: has been made to an association known as the New England Security Invest ment company. According to information obtained here, the transfer is said to involve the street car lines owned by the New Ha ven road in both Massachusetts and Connecticut, with connecting lines to Rhode Island and New Tork. A report from New Haven, however, indicated the probability that the Connecticut lines might not figure in the transfer, due, it was said, to the fact that under the charter of the Consolidated Railway company, the holding company of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad company, such a transfer would be unnecessary. There was no leading official of the railroad in this city to-day who could state the exact scope of the deal. It was announced unofficially, however, that the railroad company had disposed of its entire group of trolley lines, and later this news wa8 confirmed by an undoubted ' authority with the comment that its , publication was premature. 'For over three years the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad company has been acquiring street rail ways in the state of Massachusetts, and recently the holdings of the company reached such proportions that the mat ter was made the subject of a special message by Governor Guild to the legis lature, on the eve of Its adjournment last June. Attorney General Dana Ma lone also interested himself in the mat ter and, acting in accord with the views of the governor, he drafted and submit ted to the legislature a bill intended to prevent a continuance In this state of the control of the trolley car companies toy steam railroad systems. A brief con sideration of the matter by the legisla tive committee on street . railways brought about the suggestion that a test case be made and the attorney general set about preparing a case which would eventually receive a ruling from the Massachusetts supreme court. While this case was being prepared, the attorney general, desiring certain infor mation in connection with the car lines ijwned by the railroad, asked President Mellon, through Chairman Jackson of the state railroad commission, to furn ish it to him. i The Information asked for by Mr. Malone was transmitted to him to-day and almost slmultaneusly the fact that the railroad company had transferred i Its holdings beome known. Attorney General Malone was at his hcmo in Greenfield to-day. "When ask ed about the matter he said: "The facts are, that under the statute I asked the railroad commissioners to get certain information from the New iYork, New Haven and Hartford rail road as a preliminary to beginning pro ceedings against that company. The railroad company subsequently sent a communication to the railroad commis sion stating that the company had never held any stock in street railway companies and that the Consolidated had disposed of the street railway stock which it had. "The commission to-flay notified me of this reply." ' The action of the railway coipany at this time created a mild sisation Ibut it was Impossible to get a expres sion of opinion as to what effect it would have on the proposed court pro ceedings.

Bank Examiner Asks for Police Pro. tectlon The Bank One of the Oldest Institutions in the Town Has Capi tal of $300,000 and Carries Deposits of Several Million Dollars President Declines to Discuss the Failure. Boston, Aug. 16. The First National bank of Chelsea will not be open for business in the morning, orders having been issued by the comptroller of the currency to close the institution. National Bank Examiner Alfred Ewer has been making an Inspection of the bank recently, and to-night, at the re quest of the directors, he visited the in stitution and counted the cash on hand. The bank examiner stated that he had found- no discrepancy between cash book and funds on hand, but that, from a superficial examination, he had decid ed to recommend to the authorities at Washington that the doors ot the bank be closed to business to-morrow. He said that he had had no opportunity to make a thorough inspection of the books, but from what he had observed, and from statements of some of the of ficials, it was doubtful if the bank was ever reopened for business. Beyond this statement the bank examiner had nothing to say for publication to-night. At a late hour to-night Bank Exam iner Ewer notified the officers at police headquarters in Chelsea that he re quired the services of a patrolman to guard the bank during the night and that in the morning he probably should need the assistance of several police men at the institution, as it was possi ble that a run would ,be started by the depositors when they heard that the doors would not be opened. The police accordingly assigned a patrolman to stand at the bank doors during the night. Mr. Ewer arrived at the bank at 9 o'clock to-night and made a superficial examination of the' cash books and seme of the accounts. Several of the directors and employes assisted him in his work. The First National Is one of the old est institutions in Chelsea, having been incorporated as a national bank in 1864, It has a capital of $300,000 and carries deposits of several million dollars. The president is Sylvester B. Hinckley of the Chestnut Hill district of Newton, formerly a resident of Cnelsea. The cashier is Walter Whittlesey. Neither of these men were at the bank to-night and when President Hlnokley was call ed on the telephone at his home he de clined to make any statement whatever regarding the situation. He admitted that he had heard of the action of Bank Examiner Ewer, but refused to discuss the matter. CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTIONS Held Yesterday in All the Districts of Illinois. Chicago, Aug. 16.

BLACKSTAFF'S OPINION. Noted English Oarsman Says Harvard Lacks In Leg Power Bourne End, England, Aug. i6. Among the . visitors at the Harvard crew's quarters in Bourne End to-day was H. T. Blackstaff, the winner six times of the London cup and this year's winner of the diamond sculls. Mr. Blackstaff said he thought the arm work of the Harvard crew was "great," but that the men lacked the leg drive so essential to progress in an eight oared boat and a necessary adjunct to powerful arm-work. He considered Harvard's boat suited to rough water, but suggested that the extra three feet would assist In speed. "There is" said Mr. Blackstaff, "a big difference in the after part, as it slopes a good deal more than ours. I think the Americans have vastly improved in style." , Mr. Blackstaff thought it was a mis take for Harvard to bn practicing at Bourne End, adding: "They ought to be- at Putney now. They do not know the course, and I shall be agreeably surprised If they are properly acquaint ed with it by September 8. It will take some time for a coxsvvafn, however good, to remember the proper course to pursue under the varying conditions to which he will be subject there. Our own Putney coxswains, sorne of whom have held rudder lines for years, often make mistakes, sometimes losing a race when the oarsmen were winning It."

Governor Heywood reached the scene shortly after the negro had been cap tured. A platform was erected in a fence corner on the premises of the victim's father, from' which platform Governor Heywood adressed the mob in an effort to prevent the lynching. The governor begged the mob not, to lynch Davis, but in vain. At the con clusion of his speech the governor was vociferously cheered. The -mob then re moved the prisoner from the view of the governor, and' within a short dis tance of the home of his victim, the negro was riddled with -bullets. It is limposslibl-e to estimate the crowd,- as citizens from several counties had gathered at the scene, and for two dayB had been in pursuit of the negro, but It is certain that hundreds of bullets were sent through the body. The mil itia in that section of the state is now encamped at Chlcamauga, and there were no nearby troops to -be called up on. The governor's guards and the Richland volunteers of this city had been ordered to hold themselves in readiness in the event that their ser vices were needed. The assault by Davis on Miss Brooks was made last Tuesday In her father's store, where he was temporarily in charge. After making some purchases the negro grasped a meat knife, shout ing, "You are what I want," and sprang toward the girl. Miss Brooks attempted, to defend herself with an iron bar, but the negro slashed her across the -throat. Afterwards he went three miles to another farm and out raged a fourteen year old negress.

CANNON'S BOOH FOR , -f;es!Dency SPRUKE HIS VAME USAtAIOUSLY S DORSElt BY It l PUBLWA NS OF ILLl.ois. He Is Also Renominated for Congress for the Elslit-x-jfl, Consecutive Time In a Speed, 3ie Defends the Right of Injunction Decliircs He Does Xot Pear to Tuke His Chances With the Patriotic Workmen of HI. r.lairl.-t ' Cautions Against Dauf ti : i :lr!ff Revision. Danville, 111., Aug. lfi.-Speaker Cm- non to-day In a long address to his cin istltuents, opening his campaign for re election to congress, Squarely faced the" menace of the American Federation of Labor, and squarely took issue with President Gompers on the legislation advocated by the latter. He defended the right of Injunction, and said that he did not fear to take his chances with the patriotic workingmen of his district, who, he believed, were with him for law and order and protection of prop erty. The address was largely devoted to the tariff question, giving copious statistics to show that the protective tariff Is the basis of the country's material prosperity, and cautioning against the dangers of revision. Mr. Cannon's appearance was made before a republican congressional convention of the Eighteenth district. He was ac corded a splendid welcome. The convention renominated Mr. Can non for the eighteenth time by accla mation. There was the greatest enthu siasm, especially over his prospective candidacy for president. Mr. Cannon had not intended to launch a boom for president at this- convention, but the pressure of his supporters was so great as to sweep away his wishes in the matter. Mr. Cannon's supporters to his own district will likely urge the state convention to make similar endorse ment. There seems , to be little doUlbt that thla will be done. - The convention unanimously endorsed iMr. Cannon for president of the United States. The resolution was adopted amidst the greatest enthusiasm. Mr Cannon said: . ' "The resolution which you have just adopted, ooming as' It does from those whom I have represented In the nation al house of representatives over thirty years, touches me profoundly. I would not exchange your confidence for the gratification of any ambition I might have. It is proper for me to say, how ever, that we are on the eve of a cam paign for the election, of a national' house of representatives, which may in volve one-third of the personnel of the United States senate, to say nothing 0f the campaign in the respective states. "In politics as well as in other mat ters, it is best not to cross a stream be. fore you come to it. The first strsam to cross is in November next and it is' necessary that we should be successful In crossing it .before we attempt to get lover the river in 190.
