Tobacconist Attached Dinno Bound Over Cretello Geta Heavy Sentence Many Dollar Owing Judge Cleve land City Court News, The Connecticut Supreme court has handed down a decision in the case ot Hubert L. DIckerman, assistant clerk of the "city court, against the Consoli dated Railway company, heard at the October term in Bridgeport. It was an action of the killing of Dickerman's dog, bruoght. to the city court' of New Haven and tried to the jury, after a demurrer to the complaint, because it was not alleged that the dog was reg istered, ha-d been overruled by Judge Mathewson. , The decision in that court was for the plaintiff to recover $50, and the company appealed. ' The supreme court found error, and the case is re manded. The dog in question was the celebrated bull,. ''Pusser,"' the 'Village pet of Westville, where Mr. Dickerman resides. The decision hung n the point of the non-registration of the dog, and it says:: ."We are satisfied that under our present law, which praotically de fines by statute the status of the dog as property, no person has such prop erty in an unregistered dog over six rhonths of age as will enable him to maintain an action for the value of such a dog against one who intention ally, but negligently, kills it.. That only constables and policemen are au thorised to kill' unlicensed dogs, and "that this dog was not killed by either, ia not decisive of the plaintiff's right to recover. The question .ls not wheth er tho defendant can. justify the- act of killing the dog, by showing that it was lawful, but whether, even if the act was unlawful, the defendant has in TOBACCONIST ATTACHED. Constable Bracken attached the stock and fixtures in the tobacco store of William H. Pender of 410 Grand ave nue, in a suit brought by A. Vander Pooter & Son, of New York, tobacco nists, to recover $299. The suit is re turnable to the city court. . . DINO BOUND OVER, In, the criminal side of the superior court, Judge Case sentenced Frederick R. Hull to sixty days in jail. Hull broke into a store in Wallingford about a month ago, . In the city court Judge Richard Ty ner bound Michael Dlnno over to the superior court on two counts of breach of the peace. These charges Will prob ably be changed to assault with intent to kill, and the bonds are fixer at $300 on each charge. Dinno was found in a barn at. 74' St. John Street by Frank O'Hara and William Tobin, and when they ordered him out assaulted them with a knife. SEN- CRETELLO GETS HEAVY TENCE. ; The jury yesterday in the criminal side of the superior court brought In a verdict of guilty on two counts of as sault with Intent to kill against An tonio Cretello, and he was sentenced by Judge Case to from three to five years on the first count, and. three years on the second. ' The case occupied the at tention of the court all day. Cretello Is charged with having as saulted Orazlo Perma and Joseph Pan briache December 1 in an Italian board ing house at W Warren street. MANY DOLLARS OWED HIMV Although no estimate will ever be made public, yet It lis known that Judge CleaVelahd who retire's from active ser vice In the probate court next Wednes day? wil have thousands- . of dollars owed him. During the twelve years that he has been in office there have beei many fees that have not been paid, and it is said that these now amount to a very large sum. Of course all of, the unpaid bills In i thecourt up to the tlmo that JUdse negligently killing an unregistered dog ; Studley goes Into office belong to Judge deprived the plaintiff of a property right, which enables him. to recover in this action.'' The supreme court orders that the company's demurrer In the city court Ks sustained, and the case be proceed ed with according to low. "Fusser" had been registered, but his license had expired at the time he also expired, so the future proceedings In the case according to law mean that the . damage action will probably be 'thrown out of, court. It was the first case. of Its kind brought here, and at . tracted much attention. Cleaveland, and it will probably be a long time before he gets them all In.

At the last meting of the city, court crl when public attention was concen trated on the high license and bt.her measures under consideration, the council passed an ordinance Introduced by Mr. Goebel, not only prohibiting the erection over the sidewalks of any structures of galleries suported ' -by pouts in the commercial district of '.he city, frpm roydras to St. Louis street and from Clalbirne street to the river, but reqlures all "galleries" already erected to be removed by July IB, 1907. Thls7 ordinance 'was signed Friday by Acting Mayor McRacken, In the ab sonce of Mr. Bahrman. It is somewhat difficult to treat such legislation seriously or patiently. What was ths council thinking of when it took action in this matter? ' What did it intend to do, and nhy? Did the council realize the ser!ousnes of the order it issud? There are some hun dred and fifty squares, in the district affected and from three tj four thm:s nd Jiousgs; of which over a thousand have "the structure" of' galleries which Mr Goebel wants torn' down and pro hibited. Their removal would cost a hundred thousand dollars or more, and wquld not subserve any useful purpose whatever. It is difficult .to see tho' motive or purpose underlying the Ordinance. There is a stupid idea among some people that New Orleans must follow the fashions of other cities, whether good or bad, whether tor not suited to conditions here or to our climate. If a thing is good for New York It, In the estimation of these people ought to be adopted In New Orleans. We should cut down the trees on our ban quettes because New York has none; we should abolish our "neutral grounds" because there are none in Manhattan, and we expect to see a proclamation against lawns because the northern metropolis Is so der.sly loverpopulated and crowded it can not aford them. New York has no "el lerles" supported by posts, ergo, ac cording to this reasoning, New Or leans should do without them. It is difficult to cuncelve ,f greater folly. The gollerlcs which front Canal and other thoroughfares of this city are a peculiarity of this citj', which gives it an individuality and orlsinal ity, and which are thoroughly, appre ciated by strangers when they see the purposes for which they were origin al!:' constructed and how useful and comfortable they are. In a city like New Orleans, subject to a long sum mer and frecuent and heavy storms and an excessive rainfall, sime pro tection against the sun and rain such as our galleries offer Is absolutely necessary. Thev make our streets far le.73.hot than they otherwise are, and probably tend to reduce the number of sunstrokes we otherwise wtould have. Those who have had a chance to com pare Broadway In a hot spell ' with Canal street during the midst of a summer can appreciate how much our galleries mean to us, what a comfort they are to shoppers and other pedes trians, besides being a protection from the rain and a safe spot from which to see our Carnival parades, proces or biiiklei. ignorant of this fact and laboring under the same wrong idea as Councilman Goebel, that whatever suits New York is good enough for New Orleans, torhlts the gallery from the building he is constructing on Manhattan lines, only to find that the old builders knew New Orleans better. There is the Morris bulldlnj, for in stance. When originally built the gal lery was emitted, but it was' found that its absence made the stores on Car.?.! and Camp streets bo hot as to eb nearly unendurable; and so the New Oorleans gallery was added. It is now proposed to trder the destruc tion of this protecting gallery why, one would like to have Mr. Goebel ex plain. 'New Orleans Times-Democrat. MIGRATION OF BIRDS. Their Sense of Locality Well Devel oped.. The migration of birds is a subject which Is full of intesesting and difficult problems, and not the least interesting nor the least difficult of comprehension is the question how they find their way. About the admirable accuracy of their movements there is no question what ever. The willow warbler will come back year after year to occupy the same position, in the same tangle of grass and undergrowth, as the sit for its nest. Others are no less accurate and punctual; but the exactness of this little bird is the more remarkable be cause of its apparently feeble powers of flight, which seem to leave it quite un provided with the locomotive means re quired to bring it so unerringly in Its goal. While the questions which mi gration presents are 'difficult enough of understanding, there is one which tran scends all the rest in its obscurity. It is the question, which Is suggested by the fact, apparently quite well authen ticated, that in the case of many spe cies they are the young birds of the year that lead the migration flight. , Of coursj this is the kind of fact which is very difficult of proof. It is open to the objector to say: "How do you know that there are not a few old birds, per haps the barren birds of the year, tak ing part In the earlUst migration flights of the species, and so giving a lead to the. youngsters along a,- line which has become familiar, to them through previous travel?" ; It is diffi cult to answer thie objector satisfacto rily, because he at, once, puts his op ponent into the position of one who Jias to prove a negative, ana - we all know what an uncomfortable position that is. The prjs and cons of the whole argu ment are far to'o long and intricate, to enter into here. Ail we we can do is to ask tlie reader to accept thj verdict of such observers . as, Gatke and many more that the birds 'of the year in many cases do lead the migration flight, that some instinct acts as their compass and that they do not avail themselves of the guidance 'of any old or barren birds. No doubt to ask credence for such a statement is to ask a god deal. The explanation sometimes offered, that these birds are led by inherited instinct along the-: migration line3 followed by their forefathers, in some cases pursu ing the course of ' a long-since sub merged river or other visible gulling lino, is an xplanatlnn almost as hard of acceptance as the original mystery which It Is invoked t'c explain. Nor does the mystery become any less mys terious, though it bfcomes more possi ble of credence, even if ndt of compre hension when we consider it alongside of other examples of aHIke kind with which natural history can furnish us. For It d'oes not stand alone by any means. If It did, we might 'Indeed ask credence for it In vain".

Next to developing original writers in its own time, the most fortunate thing, from th?. literary standpoint, which can befall any people, is t3 have revealed to it some new treasure house of litera--ture. This treasure house may be stored with the writings of another people In the present, or else with the writings of- a buried past. But a few generations ago, in that innocent age when Blackstone could speak of the "Goths, Huns, Franks and Vandals" Incongruous gathsrlng-as "Celtic" tribes, the long vanished literature of the ancestors of the present European nations, the epics, the sagas, the sto ries in verse or pros?, were hardly known to, or regarded by, their educa ted and cultivated descendants. Grad ually, and chiefly in the nineteenth cen tury, thes; forgotten ?literatures, or fragments of them, were one by one re covered. They are various in merit I and interest, in antiquity and extent "Beowulf," the Norse sagas, the "Kale vala," the "Nibelungenlled," the "Song of Roland," the Arthurian cycle of ro mance. Ia some there is but one great poem; in some all the poems or storks are of one type; in others, as in the case of the Norse sagas, a wide range of history, myth and personal biogra phy is coyered. In our own day there has at last come abo:ut a popular revival of inter est In the wealth of poems and tales to be found -in the ancient, Celtic, and es pecially in the ancient Erse, manu scriptsthe whole forming a body of prose and poetry of. great and well nigh unique interest from every stand point, which in some respects can be matched only by the Norse sagas, and which has some striking beautl.s the like of which are not to be found even in these Norse sagas. It is greatly to be regretted that America should have done so little either in the way of original study and research in connection with the early Celtic literature, or in the way of pop ularizing and familiarizing that litera-f ture, and it is much to be d:sired that wherever possible chairs of Celtic should be established in our leading universities.

V'""8 LUl'. . e " '(-"? """ spot without, so far as we are able to ascertain, any previous hint or Indica tion of guidance, demonstrates Itself In several remarkable ways besides that of the migration flight, but in wino perhaps more remarkably than in the case of the guanano, a species of llama of South America, .whliii resorts in im mense numbers to a. Acrtftln place, to die. In - fact, It eeems rom the ac counts given by Darwin and by Mr. V. H, . Hudson, that all the guanacos mf the southern part of JPatagvmla must resort, when the hour of death ap proaches, to a certain spot in a certain riverbed which has bepome a perfect mausoleum of their botiwu. air. Hudson has hazarded a very ingenious hypoth. esos to account for this assemblage In the. common mortuary, He n'otes, pri marily, that It is only the guanaco of the southern extremity, of the South American continent that has this hab it;' which is as much as to say that it is a habit restricted to, descendants of forefaUi rs who lived at one time in an extremely rigorous, semi-Antarctic cli mate. Mr. Hudson conjectures that among these forefathers the Instinct grew up, whrn the stress Of hunger and cold was very dire and they felt its chill setting upon them, of resorting to this sheltered place in the river b:d, where they might find warmth in their own closely collected numbers, and pos sibly food, which would enable them to outlive the days of extreme rigor. By a continual survival of those which be took themselves to this place of refuge the racei instinct would be formed of resorting thither when they felt the tides of life -runnlnglow. This feeling, Mr. Hudson argues, their descendants are likely to experience now at the a p. proach of the h'our of death, and in obedlencs to it to flock to tho same re sort. But now it is no longer just a passing spell of extreme cold which they .can hope, to survive that leads tlicm thither. The d ath call has come, and they must lay their bones in the comrn'on mortuary. It is not "In order to die," as we so frequently say, with a very common error in considering the ways of animals, that , the guanaco seeks this place; it would be nearer the truth If we were to say It was "in or der to livf." iBut the most true ac- doubtcount of all, no doubt (if the hypothesis is accepted,) la that It Is with no conscious purpose at ail, but In mere obedience to the inherited In stinct, that the guanaco resorts to this refuge; and still the hypothesis, for all Its ingenuity, leaves unanwertd the question (save as it Is answered by the so-called "explanation" of the migration flight) how the gunco is guided to this shelter of its forefathers from the Antarctic cold. Yet another instance of what appears to be this wholly mys terious guidance Is afforded by the well known habit if the rattlesnake, in the colder countries of their range, to assemble together in great numbers for hiburnation hibernation in caves. It seems to be pretty well established that the snakes, on emerging from these caves, cover long distance In their wanderings; that the,ir young are gen erally born far away from nhe winter ing place, and yet that these young, al though they 6o not, accompany their parents nor remain with them until the date of hibernation approaches, still succeed In finding their way to tho caves with the greatest certainty. Ail these, anl many more which might b? cited, are Instances which tend to show that animals are led or guided, or whatever the word may be which will express most clearly a fact which is really quite obscure, by some force or influence which is distinct from anything that our senses reveal to us. But to say that they prove it would be to say too much. Spectator. 'Njala Saga," and the "Saga of Gisli Magazine, : , .
