NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER, SATURDAY JANUARY 5 3907 WATERBURY DEFEATED r AS OLD TIME POLO GAME LAST XIGHT. Score Wi S to 1 in Favor of New Ha ' ven Both Teams Lost Goals on Fiuls A Large Crowd Witnessed the Sport and There Was Plenty of Ex citement to Keep Them Interested. It was an old-time polo game at the rink last night. There was also an old-time crowd and they saw a very swift and exciting game between Wa terbury and New Haven. There was just enough rough-house to please the fans and Billy Hayward made matters interesting by calling fouls galore. But Billy will have to use a little discretion In calling fouls in the future, or else the games will be prolonged and get .tedious. Both teams were pretty evemy matched as regards playing strength, 'but the home team had all the luck that was in it. Waterbury lost two goals on fouls and was also unfortunate in having two come out of the cage. Porter, for New Haven, did excellent work in front of the goal, and Bone, Dewes and the other two players put tip a Very aggressive game. It will be a mistake if the league at its meeting' to-morrow should take any action to disbar Holderness and Loxon from playing on the Waterbury team. In New Haven and Waterbury they have got the crowds going, and the motto ought to be towards strengthen ing the teams rather than in weakening them. It is quite evident the people want polo. They are willing to pay for it and they expect, in return for their money, that the article served up will be to a certain standard. Waterbury and New Haven are all right as they stand, and with polo played as both teams did last night the spectators will be satisfied. Line-up and score: 'Waterbury. New Haven. Loxon Bone , ...

During the late autumn months travelers alons the roads of the coun try .have noticed numerous posters advertising the fact that such and such a firm are prepared to pay a good sum for and use all the bayberries de livered to them. These posters have aroused 'much curiosity as to what fuse is made of these products of seemingly worthless brush ; which grows in many of the woodlots and rpastures on many of the farms ' in town. In answer to an Inquiry made of one of the farmers,- It is found out, says the Norwich Bulletin, that these ber rles are used in making bayberry tal loiw, and he stated further that there eemed to be little known about this industry and that the only manufac tories of this kind are two In Wester ly and . one in Providence. He stated that the time for gathering them com menced about the middle of December and lasted through the winter, and that many of those living on the farms Improved their idle time by gatherig them. The price averages somewhere in the neighborhood of from 50 to 60 cents a bushel, varying with the quali ty of the yield, and this season the price is unusually high, the gatherers getting 85 cents for every bushel gathered. The berries grow in clusters and are about as large as a sweet pea and are very oily, In fact, heavy buckskin gloves and old clothes are generally worn by those gathering them. The bushes, which grow in pastures and woodland, are about the size of a com mon huckleberry bush, but are charc tcrized by a large number of branches. T. L. Peabody, of North Stonington, at present holds the record, having gathered 301 bushels one winter, aver aging eight bushels a day. The ber ries, which in reality are the seeds of the bayberry shrubs, are delivered to the factory where they are placed in a vat and the oil tried out. The tal low is of a deep green color and is characterized by a hardness similar to marble. It is used extensively for po lishing floors and also also in tho manufacters of cartridges.

Fifty years ago tigers were very Common even in the hig hills of west ern Tibet, writes C. A. Sherring in his account of that country. At the pres ent time, however, owing to the in crease of population and the general spread of cultivation, they have be come rare, and the appearance of a man eateh who carried off a poor old Woman on the slope of Chlpla created great consternation. On the following day there were gathered together a hundred grim men, armed only with axes and stones, for they had not a gun among them. j Fortune favored the bravet for the tiger was found asle,ep under a rock. At once each man dropped silently into the cover of the bushwood and piled a heap cf- stones near to his hand, while one of the most trusted of the party was commissioned to stalk to the top of .the rock and drop a hugestone on the sleeping brute. So -well was the work done that the stone fell true on the tiger's back, and immediately with a roar the wounded beast sprang up, and seeing his ene mies, who leaped from their cover, charged the line. But a hundred men, desperate as to consequences, throwing stones with might and main, are not to be owed or turned from their purpose lightly. The stones broke the tiger's teeth and went Into his mouth, and his body soon be came a mass of wounds. Turning, he tried to escape, and took his pursuers up hill for a mile; but wherever he paused and 'whatever he did he could not escape the pitiless rain of missiles. .The blow on his back first given, effectually checked his speed, and Anally, worn out, he came to bay under a great cliff. The rest was easy. He was immedi ately hemmed in, and the stones were showered on him thicker than ever, and hurled with redoubled energy. As he sank down the villagers rushed in and dispatched him with their axes. Youth's Companion. . WOOD RATS' TREASURY. The Kansas wood rat is small, no larger than a common rat, but his am bition and acquisitiveness are Insatia ble. His one insane desire seems to be to increase the size of his pile of sticks. The neighboring field is placed under tribute. First of all the nearby sticks are gathered Into the pile. Then, as these are cleaned up, he goes fur ther and further ayawfrom home for more sticks. And in this huge pile of sticks he stores his winter supply of nuts. Many a time, when we were enjoying farm life by living mostly on sorghurr. and cornbread, buttermilk and Missou ri dried apples, have we gone to the woods with the other boys and taken nicely hulled walnuts from the nests of a woodrat Eldorado Republican. ENGLISH LOCOMOTIVES. Real (Antiques Highly Cherished in It aly and Elsewhere. ' When the Italian government decid ed upon natlonalixing the railway sys tem, and ibegan last year by taking over the management of the two great Mediterranean and Sicilian companies, i; soon found that the shortage of lo comotive power, and rolling stock, brought, about by the old administra tion, threatened to give rise to an eco nomic crisis. ' . To tide over pressing needs, a state commissioner was dispatched to this country for the purpose of picking up some second-hand locomotives, if pos sible. As a result of his visit a num ber -of the Metropolitan Railway com pany's old engines, together with 50 old six-coupled goods locomotives of the Midland railway, are now on thair woy to Italy. The government has al so placed orders amounting to twenty million crowns In Austria. Instances of railway engines being sold out of the country for service abroad are now .few and far between. It wais very different in former da;s, when Continental raallway men, look ed to this country for guidance. For eign enirineers then used to ceme to England to study locomotive practice, and 'when they saw a type of engine suited to their reauirementg they would arrange with the railway com pany to buy a specimen, in order that they might copy it in their own works. One or two ancient London & Northwestern goods engines, that changed hands in this manner, are still at work on a Dutch railway The fate of all engines is the scrap heap ultimately, ibut before this befalls them, and when nearly worn out, they may fie sola to contractors ur coluery proprietors, to end their days in the least dignified from of light shunting:. The electrification of railways has, however, placed ion the market a num ber of engines in the highest state of efficiency. The .Metropolitan railway, besides iselling some of its stock to the Italian governemnet, has disposed of others to the Cambrian railwavs and to the Bradford corporation. The lat ter ue them for working a "passenger and soods iservice over the Nidd Val ley Light railway, which was primar ily constructed for conveying mater ials to the Angran waterworks. The Mersey railway found considerable dif ficulty in finding purchasers for its powerful steam engines, and all are not yet sold. The London, Brighton & South Coast company have recently done a deal with the Isle of Wright railways over a few of their pretty little tank engines, known as the "Ter riers," and some "of the same class, still lgarbed in their gamboge-colored livery and, and bearing Sussex names, were to be seen doing contraeters' work in the heart of Buckinghamshire durln the construction iof the Great Western and Great Central joint line to High Wycombe. It Is a pity that more of the histor ic engines cannot be saved from the scran-heap and preserve as mementos like the "Rocket" In South Kensington museum, the '"Experiment" of the Stockton & Darlington railway, which standi on a pedestal In Darlincton station, and the "Invicta," of the Can terbury and Whitstaable railway, which was recently presented to the city of Canterbury by Sir David Solo mons, and set up in the '"Dane John." The Great Western company pre serve the name-iplaes of their veterans and '. one side of the motion of the "Lord of the Isles" has been present ed to the Swindon Technical school. Londun Mail. EXPECT TO BE ROBBED. ITS PART OF TEE GAME POR SOME VISITORS. But They're Long Changes, Says the Dutch Detective Men Who Make a Practice of Using an Assumed Name In New York It's No I'se to Warn Them. "There are plenty of fellows who occasionally visit New York from other cities and towns who con fidently expect to be frisked every time they come here, and their confi dence is rarely abused at that," said a hotel detective. "They're the chaps who took to New York from all over the countrv for the deliberate and ex press pnurpose of taking the lid off. Ubout nine outof ten of these zet rolled at some stage of their whoop up generally the final stage, when they're about all in. "I'm interviewed every morning at different hours by bleared, dazed and tired looking chaps, guests cf the house, who want to be staked to a bit of advice, and the frisk thing Is al ways the burden of their lamentations. Not that they lament so anybody else can hear them. They're careful not to do that. "It happened here or there or the other place, or they don't just exact ly remember where their frisking. They're sore as butchers over it all these who don't come here with the confident idea of being rolled, that is. They, say it's a dickens ef a town where a man can't pop in a few drinks and go out for a little whizz Just to lop a few of the gray edges off of life, and so forth and so on a strinz it. "If the man who comes to me with this kind of a narrative of grief has only a vague sort of an Idea as to where and how he was frisked and who went through him there's nothing on earth to be done for him and not many of them remember much of what happened to them- They unreel tho names of a whole lot of places where they went on the . previous night. Most of the places are joints where they had no right cn earth to be unless they were drinking vichy and milk poured out of the original nack ages right under their own eye. They all know this perfectly well. . " 'Well.' I tell them when they un coil If In this Indefinite way, 'that's ab-ut nine places, all of them ..the toughest cf the tough and the worst ever, that you blew into last night and this morning, and you were probably drinking with about ninety different mark snarers at these nine places, weren't you?' "They're penitent and down In the mouth enough to admit all of this, but they invariably claim that they got the knockout drops. It doesn't make any difference, so far as concerns get ting back their stuff, whether they were staked to the quick sleep !o!us or not. The point is that they were trimmed f their junk at some dump that they haven't the least Idea cf, and by some roller of rollers . that they couldn't identify under the violet ravs. I remind them that New York Is a big place, with a large, teeming and some what careless, population, and when I add somethlns about the needle and the haystack they've g-ot a pretty fair line on it. ... ,.. ", 'Then you don't bellve I'll be able to get my stuff back?' is the slow mu sic question that they put to me. " 'Not a chance on earth,' I have to tell them, and they 'go away mumb ling about New York being a helluva town,, where a stranger within the gates can't take a step out of his hotel without being set upon by a pack of thelves. They generally wind up by swearing that they're done with New York forever. All of which is just pinkish. They all come back some more If they live. "The thing isn't a partfele more satisfactory when the man who comes to me with his woe story has 'a aretty definite Idea of where ho got rolled and who did it. The last he re.mcm bers of the whirl, he says, he was at such a place, and he was drinking with a couple of sharp eyed ducks who. looked thus and so he is there with a pretty fair description of them. While with these fellows his light went out all of a sudden, and he knows that it's a perfect pipe that those two fellows took him for his roll and his jewelry. " 'All right,' I say to the man who uncoils it that way, 'there's a chance for you to get a piece of yours back, anyway. I'll drop down to the Ten derloin station with you and you can tell 'em down there what you remem ber of the looks of the pair of rollers who frisked you. They'll probably have a line on that pair and will know just where to go out and get them, and in hauling them In they may drag down at least a part of your stuff. After your pair are pinched, though, of course you'll have to go into a police court and make your complaint against them and tell you what you know about h'ow it happened. You're willing to do that, of course?' "This is the spot where the craw fishesthey all do. " 'What,' he gurgles, 'and It get In to the papers here and then telegraph ed out to the papers in my home town how I was rolled while flzglgging around a lot of 'New York dives and have my folks and friends all read it and me going back home in a couple days? Not much! Not in a thousand years!' "And that usually settles it. I should say that not more than one man-in five hundred will put his name to a complaint in such a case. They'd rather stand for the loss, no matter how bis that loss may be, than show themselves up by making a complaint. "But during the last few years a cer tain number of chaps who have be come so used to being rolled every time they come to New York that they look upon it as a part of the came have at the same time become foxy. They put up at a different hotel ever.' time they come here, and every time they put up under a different i name and. with the name of a differ ent town tacked to the assumed name. They do thl with the deliberate anti cipation that all kinds of things are likely to happen to them while they're on their New York spree. They're not only likely to be rolled, they know but they're pretty apt to be pinched for in volllng around too tumultuously. In any case they've got their fixed up names to fall baokv upon. "The assumed name is a great thing for the rolled man who, when it's all over, experiences the hunch to get his stuff back. He can mak a complaint ir. case his rollers are nailed and not have any fear of the consequences. He's an anonymous Individual, and there's no way of proving that he isn't the man he says he is. Whenever a rolled guest of this house tells me that h? is willing to go the limit of making a complaint, I just about conclude that the guest is sailing under a phony name. "There was one case here not long ago that didn't nudge through easily for the frisked one who was down on the register under an assumed name. The name he scrawled on the book was quite a common one,, but he wrote out his home address as a town in Kansas. He tanked up and went out and got frisked, according, presumably to his expection, and then he went with me to thet Tenderloin the ex day to put up his holler and make out his complaint, against the fellows who had taken him. The friskers were crabbed and thoy had the ring and pin of the man with the fixed up name 'from Kansas.' The story got into tho papers, and on the following day the actual wearer of that common name, who was also from that identic al little town in Kansas, appeared at the. Tenderloin station and made many different kinds of a shriek.. "He was stopping at a hotel only a little way up the street from this one, end he was a very sedate proposition who didn't tour New. York's bad dumas o' nights and who was there with the heaviest kind of a kick ever the Tenderloin's giving out the story that he'd salted for his rYH and Junk while hurtln' around the dives. I was immediately tipped off as to what had happened, and I dug up our guest who had thought out the fictitous name at random and advised him to vams at once to save bother. He drilled be fore the real owners of his fictitious name showed up here to eornfront him. "As I started out by saying, though, anv number of men come here for their jamborees who. when they get out to look the town over, never have the least Idea in life that they're not going to be taken for everything they've got , en , them that's worth while. They look upon the frisking thing as a regular part of tho per formance, the coffee and cigarettes of the feed, as It were, and they don't put up any holler at all. They drop around to Where I'm standing, of course, and they say, 'Well, they've taken me again.', but they don't osk any advice about what's to be done ther're old time victims and know all ay.-.ut It. 4 , , "These men don't get trimmed for sparkers, though, more than a couple of times in their , lives, for. they jret Into the h.abjt. of stripping, themselves of everything of value they've'got and placing It in the, hotel safe before they get under way, taking with them Just what they think they're going to need in the way of csln. "All the same, these complaisant ones are alwayts taking a big ' risk. Even If a man has all of his valuables except the mere, spending money salt ed a hotel safe, he's out of luck whan ho falls into the hands of New York crooks. They can do a whole lot of things to him that are likely to hurt him a lot If they have a mind to. They can neejhlm or stake 'him t tio doss drops,,. or give him the boots if he gets a bit surly with them. They can hash him up generally; and those friskers are a good deal inellmed to get a grouch against a man whom they've nudged, along to his all-in p'olnt for a g-od thing, and who when they get to the, point whore they're rolllnc him, has fooled them up by tucking away , his stuff where they can't get it. They are a snod deal in favor of heeling In the face the mark who fools them up in this way. "But we'd get fat warning them. A h'otel scout doesn't dare take a chance trying to warn visitors from the out side. Why? Well, becuse they'd take it for granted . that the hotel sleuth su.vpectcd them of being Rubes ur.able to tnka care 'of themselves In New York, and if there's anything calculat ed to give a Rube a sure enough gi'ouch it's the suspicion that some body in New York suspects him cf be ing one cf the breed.

Malady Has Appeared in All Parts of the State and is Not Confined to Bogs. The epidemic of rabies among dogs in the state and the prevalence of glan ders and bovine tuberculosis are among the chief topics given consideration in the annual report of Herman O. Aver ill, commissioner on domestic animals, which has been presented to the gov ernor. Of rabies It is stated that only the prompt action of town officials and in dividuals in ordering dogs muzzled or confined has prevented a general epi- demic, although the malady has ap peared in all sections of the state. Tho outbreak has not been confined to dogs, but a number of cattle, swine I and horses have shown unmistakable I evidences of the disease and have either died or been killed to end their i sufferings. Several persons have been i either bitten by rabid dogs or had their hands exposed to the saliva of ! such an animal. So far as known such exposed persons, with two excep tions, have promptly taken the Pasteur treatment and thus prevented the de- velopment of the disease. The two ex ' ceptlons referred to, in agonizing deaths by hydrophobia, paid awful pen alties for their refusal to take the treatment. In the face of an epidemic of thb frightful malady, the commissioner, owing to the limitations of the law, felt ' himself powerless to act as the exigen cies of the situation seemed to demand, i All that he might do was to attempt I to awaken public sentiment by giving information regarding ' the prevalence and seriousness of the disease and sug gesting certain steps that local author- spread. This ha did by issuance of a bulletin explaining the seriousness of the sit uation and suggesting means to be taken to check the spread of the mal ady. During the year fifty-seven horses and one mule suffering from glanders were killed, and 479 cattle condemned as being ill of bovine tuberculosis. The average price per head paid for the j cattle was $11.38. The total expense of i the office was $7,980.27, of which amount $5,451 was paid for condemned cattle j I and $1,551 paid to veterinaries. , The i commissioner's conclusion is based on ! condemnations, that no county In the, state can claim freedom from bovine tuberculosis.

You have already done sub- ' stantially the same for the cause of peace at Tho Hague. This new gift of ; yours has an almost or quite equal sig nificence, as far as the cause of peace in the western hemisphere is concern ed, for the bureau of American repub lics is striving to accomplish for this hemisphere what .The Hague peace tribunal is striving to ' accomplish for both hemispheres, I thank you heart ily." . Secretary Root made a statement In which he said it was originally thought that $125,000 would be sufficient for the building, and this amount was allotted to sixteen republics, Including the Unit1 ed States, in proportion to population. The South American countries' share amounts to about $30,000, which has been paid In. The last congress, how ever, appropriated $200,000 for this na- tlon's part in the work, so that there iare now available funds for the buiia ing to the amount of about $980,000. Mr. , Root adds: .''
