NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND , COURIER, WEDNESDAY APRIL 11 1307
IN AND ABOUT THE COURTS JUDGE HATTHEWSOX ON THE SUBJECT OF ILLEGAL SELLING. Andrew Blocker Sentenced to Stnte Prison Suits Against ?iew Haven Gas Ilgbt ICstate of Walter Judson City Court Cases Suits Against the Trolley Company., In fining Daniel J. Kavanaugh, whose Franklin street saloon was raided on Sunday, $50 and costs of $17.40, and docking each of the nine drinkers caught at the bar $2 and costs of $11.77, Judge A. McClellan Matiiewson took occasion in the police court yesterday to urge the organization, by all local saloonkeepers, of a protective associa tion to put a ban on Sunday selling, such as has just been formed by the Italian saloonkeepers. "The organization of such an associa tion among the tlalian keepers is high ly pleasing as a step which should make illegal selling almost impossible," commented the Judge. "I think that it is as much In the interest of the rival saloonkeepers that none of them shall do business on Sunday as it is the in terest of the city at large. "The proprietors sell on the Sabbath with the aim of drawing a trade which will make their place popular. Hence It Is for the financial welfare of his rival salopnkeepers to prevent, such a sale, and I think that if all the deal ers will band together in an association to suppress this illegal business it will result in a dry Sabbath throughout the city." 'ANDREW BLOCKER TO PRISON. Pleading the unwritten law to a more or less extent as the excuse of Andrew Blocker, the brakeman who stabbed Robert Rafferty, a fellow trainman, at their boarding house at 233 Water street a month or so ago, Attorneys Hart and Kenna yesterday threw their client on the mercy of Judge Silas A. Robinson in the supe rior court and asked for clemency. State Attorney Williams asked for the maximum penalty of five years for as sault with intent to kill, and after hear ing the arguments on both sides Judge Robinson made the maximum four years and the minimum one year in State prison.

Claiming that members of his family were poisoned by gas escaping from a street main, Henry Bald, a grocer at 204 Peck street, has brought suit against the New Haven Gas Light company, asking for $1,000 damages. The leak in the street main was dis covered in November, and for three weeks before that Mr. Bald says that his home was filled with gas. Where it came from he was unable to find out, CLEAR HEADED .Head Bookkeeper Must Be Reliable. The chief bookkeeper In a large bus iness house in one of our great Wes tern cities speaks of the harm coffee did for him: "My wife and I drank our first cup of Postum Coffee a little over two years ago, and wo have used It ever since to the entire exclusion of tea and the old kind of coffee. It happened in this way: "About three and a half years ago I had an attack of pneumonia, which left a memento in the shape of dyspepsia, or rather, to speak more correctly, neu ralgia of the stomach. My 'cup of cheer' had always been coffee or tea, but I became convinced, after a time, that they aggravated my stomach trou ble. I happened to mention the matter to my grocer one day and he suggested that I give Postum Food Coffee a trial. "Next day it came, but the cook made the mistake of not boiling It suf ficiently, and we did not like it much. This was, however, soon remedied, and now we like it so much that we will never change back. Postum, being a food beverage instead of a drug, has been the means of curing my stomach trouble, I verily believe, for I am a well man to-day and have used no other remedy. "My work as chief bookkeeper in our Co.'s branch house here is of a very confining nature. During my coffee drinking days I was subject to nervous ness and the 'blues' in addition to my sick spells. These have left me since I began using Postum Food Coffee, and I can conscientiously recommend it to those whose work confines them to long hours of severe mental exertion." 'There's a Reason." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek., Mich. although he had plumbers make an inspection of the piping in his home, and this failed to show that there were any leaks in the pipes in the house. One day his son went down in the cellar and he was overcome by gas, and Mr. Bald says that his wife and him self were made sick by the gas. It was finally found that the leak was in tiie company's main, and that the gas worked its way through the ground into his dwelling. The suit is returnable in the superior court on the first Tuesday in May. Mr. Bald is represented by Attorney Charles S. Hamilton. IN THE CITY COURT. Among the many cases acted upon by Judge (Mathewson in the city court yesterday were the following: Three boys, Walter T. Willis, Ed ward A. Lafen and William J. Tierney, were all charged with' idleness. Lafen was committed to the Reform school, but Judge Mathewson reopened the case and decided to give the boy a chance, so the case was continued un til August 16, nisi, under the care of the probation officer. Willis' case went over until June 28, nisi, and Tierney's until May 18. They were also placed on probation. Margaret McNeil was fined $2 and costs for breach of the peace on Rose Dooley. A charge of drunkenness against Nellie Carr was nolled. Judgment, was suspended on a similar charge against Arthur W. Quigley. For stealing ten pounds of brass from the railroad company Giovanni Giorgio was fined $2 and costs.. Harry P. Mulligan, his wife, Nellie Mulligan, and their two-and-one-half- year-old son were before the court. The case was a pitiful one, as well as a difficult one for his honor to handle. Mrs. Mulligan was charged with drunk enness and her husband with breach of the peace. The woman was seiit to jail for thirty days, the fdther taking the child from her arms. Mulligan's case went over until April 30 under the care of the probation officer. As the result of the cutting affray at the saloon of Dominic Sasso, 56 Hill street, Monday night, charges of breach of the peace against John Cocco and Guiseppe Dowestino were continued in the city court yesterday morning until April 16. EMTAINM EXTENTS. Hyperion Theater. The engagement of "The Primrose Path" which is brought to a close with to-night's performance has been a very remarkable one In several respects. In the first place the author was un known both personally and as a play wright. ' ' In the second place nothing was giv en out In advance about the play or Its plot and thirdly, the star . Miss wych erly was practically an unknown quan tity at least locally. Taking these facts into consideration one must concede that the success of the performance is entirely due to the absolute merit of both piece and star. Miss Wycherly's work is marked by a strength that stamps her at once as one of the great actresses of the day. The lights and shades of the character are beautifully brought out, her face, singularly mo bile, shows great depth of feeling while her voice has a rich sympathetic quali ty that is peculiarly fascinating. "THE SN'OW MAN." Willie Edouin, England's most popu lar comedian, has signed with the Shu bert's and created the role of Prof. Maximillian Hooker, a garm killer with The Snow Man," the new Stange-de- Koven musical play. He will be remem bered by theatergoers in this country In The Bunch of Keys." He created the famous rle as Snags in that play. He is also favorably known as the leaing comedian in "Dreams," or "Fun in a Photograph Gallery." He created the Twiddle Punch of "Floradora' In Eng land and interpreted that role in Amer ica Until the death of his wife, lAlice Attherton, she supported him in his comedy work for several seasons. Mr. Edouin began his American career in California, where he became one of the most popular actors on the Pacifio coast. It was in San FrancisCo that "The Bunch of Keys" was given its premiere, and Snags, which finally be came a household word, was created. Mr. Edouin was part owner in this play and had an interest in the old Princess theater, San Francisco. After a few seasons in the west he came east and later the E. E. Rice company. He was also at one time a member of Lydia Thompson's "Oxygen." .He has created more leading comedy roles than any other comedian on the stage. He originated the star comedy parts in "Babes in the Woods," "Horrors," Hawthorne's "Evangeline." "The Sil ver Slipper," "The Girl from May's," "La Poupee," "The Little Cherub," "The Blue Moon," "The Little Muchus," and others. Mr. Edouin has a happy way of taking a new personality into each of his impersonations. Out in life he is a queer little fellow with a big, unlighted cigar always hanging list lessly between his lips. This cigar is never lighted and never merits the name of "stump," but it always a big, full-grown weed. Out' of the calcium light he Is serious to his finger tips; he never gives a hint of having produced more laughs than any other man be fore the theatergoing public. "The snow Man" is the attraction at the Hyperion theater Friday and Sat urday nights and Saturday matinee, lApril 12 and 13. Hew Haven Theater. With Harry Emerson and Lillian Hoerlein as the co-stars, "Gay New York" won the audience at tiie New Haven theater last night. The show is a live one from start to finish, and the dialogue is good. Emerson essays the comedy role and has what a good many so-called comedians lack, and that is humor. His part is that of a personage of Teutonic extraction, and his dialect is of toe order that goes with the audience. Miss Hoerlein is good as the leading lady. She is pret ty and possesses a voice that measures up her looks. Hir "Nightingale" song was encored. There is a sprightly and pretty chorus. The performance will be given again to-day, matinee and night. MILDRED HOLLAND. Mildred Holland will make her ap pearance at the New Haven theater on Friday night, April 12, in her new emo tional drama, "A Paradise of Lies, by Matthew Barry. In the creation of the part of Lolita in the romantic play of Italy, Miss Holland, in the judgment of the most conservative critics, ranks among the most capable and accom plished artists of her day. Possessed of wonderful personal magnetism and thoroughly schooled in the minute de tails of stagecraft, she has acquired a finesse which makes her perlorm- ances so delightful that she has been ranked with Rejane, the wonderful French emotional actress. Her voice is the acme of sweetness, and her elo cutionary powers have been compared with those of the leading stars of the generation. . . In this, as in almost every city which Miss Holland visits, her appearance is looked upon as a leading theatrical event of the season, and her patronage is only limited by the size of the the ater. Miss Holland's manager, Edward C. White, has given "A Paradise of Lies" sumptuously beautiful production. The prologue scene is one of the sen sations of the stage year, both in point of scenic, effects and the dramatic nov elty it Introduces. A marvelously beau tiful lily pond is shown. Rescued from Its waters is a babe whose thoughts have not yet pierced the mystery of things and whose form has only short ly unfolded. In the following three acts, laid among the valleys, cities and palaces of .Italy, Miss Holland, as this castaway child grows to womanhood, tells a story of human interest that carries an audience from tears to laughter and lays bare the secrets of a powerful woman-soul. THE WHITE CHRYSANTHEMUM. "The White Chrysanthemum" will be seen at the New Haven theater on Saturday, April 13, matinee and night. The story deals with the love affair of Sybil Cunningham, an English girl, and Lieutenant Reginald Armltage, of H. M. S. "Powerful," stationed in Ja pan. The lieutenant's father, a gruff old admiral of the English navy, has selected, Cornelia Vanderdecken, an American heiress, as his future daughter-in-law. Lieutenant Armltage, how ever, strenuously objects to this ar rangement, as he has already fallen In love wlthi Miss Cunningham. The lat- I ter comes to Japan from England un der the chaperonage bf Betty enyon, her cousin, an attractive young widow. The two women take up their residence in Reggie's bungalow on the seashore, and, in order to silence the tongues of scandal mongers, Miss Cunningham disguises herself as a Japanese girl. Meanwhile , Lieutenant Chippendale Belmont, a chum and brother officer of Reggie, makes his appearance and takes an active Interest in the young widow, Mrs. Kenyon. They are all very nicely settled and happy, when Admiral Armltage, Reg gie's father, unexpectedly arrives on the scene with the rich American girl., Reggie, with no Income aside from his salary, has been running deeply into debt and has acquired a Chinese ser vant, Sin-Chong; a big automobile and a chauffeur, called Perks. In or der to deceive his father Reggie hides the automobile, conceals Miss Cunning ham and dresses up his chauffeur in the uniform of. an English naval offi cer. Meanr-hile Sin-Chong Is ordered to disguise himself as anything at all. When the admiral arrives at the bun galow with the heiress Reggie and Chippy receive him with protestations of genuine welcome, and their plans are coming along beautifully, when Sin-Chong suddenly appears dressed up as a Chinese woman. Seats on sale Thursday. Poll's New Theater. May Boley and her Polly Girls, as "The Village Cut-Ups," are the big headlines of the new Poll bill this week. Miss Boley makes a very at tractive boy and the antics of her sup porting troupe are decidedly unique and comical. William J. O'Hearn presents an Irish classic entitled "A Romance of Killar ney'' as the special feature and It was decidedly well presented with elaborate scenic effects and an excellent support ing company. Ward and Curran had a new version of "Tile Terrible Judge;" Ethel Hoag and Alf Grant, in "A Little of Every thing," had the newest talk and it went with a rush. The Holdsworths are a great novelty team. Donat Bedlnl has two excellently trained dogs, and the Josselln Trio, in aerial work, are clever. The eleetrograph closes the bill with new motion pictures. ' BIJou Theater. Four performances of "The Moti and the Flame" at the Bijou by the stock company indicate that the remaining eight will be given be lore extremely large audiences, , The play has proven to be one of the mo3t popular of the season. It Is extremely entertaining in its comedy offerings, and the drama of the story is strong and Interesting. Ths story Is one of toe present time and of evcry-day life. It is written around exclusive New York society and the scenes of the play are well devel oped under the careful tutelage of Di rector McGill. Grace Franklyn Lynch in the leading role of Marwlon Vv'clton is more than pleasing and is doing her best work since' she joined the com pany. William F. Canfield in the char acter of Edward Fletcher is very strong and the two are well supported. Friday afternoon there will be the usual souvenir matinee . and on the other afternoons of the week there will be the regular bargain performances.

Tired Nervous Women Make Unhappy Homes MRS.NELUE MAKHAM A nervous irritable woman, often on the verge of hysterics, is a source of misery to everyone who comes under' her influence, and unhappy and mis erable herself. Such' women not only drive hus bands from home but are wholly unfit to R-ovem children. The ills of women act like a fire brand upon the nerves, consequently, seven-tenths of tho nervous prostra tion, nervou3 despondency, the "blues", sleeplessness, and nervous irritability of women arise from' somo organic derangement. Do you experience fits of depression with restlessness alternating with ex treme irritability ? Do you suffer from pains in the abdominal region, backache, bearing -down pains,nervous dyspepsia, sleeplessness, and almost continually cross and snappy? If so, your nerves are in a shattered con dition and you are threatened with nervous prostration. Proof is monumental that nothing in the world is better for nervous troubles of women than Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, made from native roots and herbs. Thousands and thousands of women can testify to this fact. Mrs. Nellie Makham, of 151 Morgan St., Buffalo, N. Y., writes: Dear Mrs. Pinkham: "I was a wreck from nervous prostration, T.,.fl,!j v.

Weather Disturbances Were Expected but by JTo Means a Bliiiard Chapel Street Trolley Tied Up University Athletics Receive Setback Colder Weather for a Few Days. With the sudden return of February weather yesterday and strange confus ion of green grass, tulip buds and whirling snowflakes, it is up to, some body to say something about winter lingering in the lap of spring and point out the very unusual nature of what has happened., Although April snows are by no means exceptional In New Eng land, yesterday's temperature below the freezing point and the depth of the snow together force one back to lApril, 1893, for a parallel case. At noon a regular blizzard was raging. Around the campus where one week ago several seniors were parading str'aXv -hats, - stu dents and townspeople, hurried . along wrapped in heat coats and picking out their way witfi difficulty before the driving storm. By 2 o'clock almost two inches hal fallen. It was by nature a disagreeable snow, too. Just wenough to stick to garments and still remain snow and not rain. , ' The coming of the Btorm was a sur prise to the local weather bureau. The gentleman who does the weather proph esying knew that something was bound to happen, but who would have thought IAprll 9 capable of that blizzard of yes terday? The affairs of men were pretty gener ally disturbed. The Chapel street trol ley lines were tied up for an hour. In the harbor crafts bf all kinds sought a shelter. The university football and baseball men had planned for outdoor practice with an important baseball game scheduled for to-day. The new tennis courts ori Hillhouse avenue were to be opened with joyous cereminies. All these were off and the' athletic dearth of winter prevailed everywhere. Colder weather Is expected to follow the snow storm for a few days, and after that, spring in earnest. AUTOMOBILE NEWS. Warning Issued iRegardlng the Ship ment of Machines. ' Traffic Manager Marvin of the Asso ciation of Licensed Automobile Manu facturers has just issued a warning to ths members of the association regard ing the shipment of automobiles. Every industry has felt the growing need of freight facilities, but none greater than the, automobile trade. With the increasing shipments of automobiles coming on and the decreasing number of available and suitable freight cars a situation Is immediate that may re sult disastrously to some shippers. He strongly advises loading as many auto mobles as possible in each freight car, if necessary, holding shipment until enough machines are ready to complete ly fill each freight car to be used., MINSTREL SHOW AND DANCE. Given by West Haven Conclave of Hep tasophs. The West Haven conclave of Hepta sophs 'gave a minstrel show and dance last evenng at the town hall.
