s 9 to 12. Part 2 KEW IIAVE, COXK., SATlTRDAYg APRIL 13 1907. NEW HAYEN STEAMERS. BOATS ARE MODELS FOR CAR RTISG FREIGHT. Two Have Already Been Launched and a Third Will Follow Next Month Will be Fitted With All the Modern Appliances. Ever since the announcement was made that the New England Navlga : tion Co. would put a fleet of freight steamships on the outside route between iNew York and Boston, in opposition to the old established Metropolitan Line, Interest among those watching develop, inent of steam navigation has been rife to know the style of vessel which the company controlled by the New Haven railroad interests would place In this service, Inasmuch as the new venture would be more or less in the nature of an experiment. The plans show vessels of decidedly different characteristics from those of the Metropolitan Line, either in the type of old style freighter, as used by that company, or in the plans of the new Yale and Harvard, which are in the course of the next few months to inaugurate a fast passenger and ex press freight line between the Empire City and the Hub. The designers of the new steamers for the New England Navigation Co. the Quintard Iron works Co. had a rather peculiar problem to solve in planning the three new boats which are at pre sent intended for the new outside line, inasmuch as it was stipulated that they would be able to operate with equal facility on any of the Sound routes, i. e to run into New Haven, New Lon don, Providence, Fall Eiver, or even New Bedford, in the event of their be ing needed to perform such service. It will thus be 'seen that the naval archi tects were obliged to incorporate in the design of these vessels many of the characteristics of the steamers which ply to those ports. Notwithstanding! this fact, however, the hulls of the Vessels are of the heaviest construction, and will be able to withstand the ar duous work of coastwise sea service, says the National Gazette. Two of these new steamers have been launched, and the third will be put overboard in the course of a month or so. Each has a very spacious main deck, with officers' quarters and a few state rooms for passengers on the second deck. The entire main deck, except in the case of the machinery en closures, Is set aside for the stowage of freight there being room for no less tKan 1,500 tons on this deck alone. On the iupper deck there is a wooden deck ouse, and In this officers and crew Swill have their qurater. Beginning at he forward end of this house, there are two commodious state rooms, one for the commander of the vessel, and the other for the use of the president of the line, whenever he may choose to go over the line. In a part of the deck house divided from that occupied by the officers of the vessels, are four large staterooms and a dining saloon. There is a very large promenade deck aft. Four 24-foot lifeboats are carried on this deck. The pilot house is placed on the third deck. The vessel will be equipped with wireless telegraphy, the flagpole at the rear of the pilot house being used for that purpose. The new boats have been designed by the Quintard Iron "Works company of New York, and are being built at the shipyard of the William Cramp & Sons Ship & Engine Building company at Philadelphia. The first two ships of the fleet bear the names of Massachusetts and Bunk er Hill and these vessels will be equip ped with engines of the reciprocating type. The third vessel, to be named the Old Colony, will be identical as to size , and design of hull will be supplied with three Parsons marine turbines driving triple screws. The general dimensions of each of thees steamers are as follows: Length on water line, 375 feet; length over all, S96 feet 6 inches; breadth molded, 52 feet, and depth molded 22 feet. The de tails of construction of the steel hulls of these boats will be found in our con. structional plans, shown in this issue. The Massachusetts and Bunker Hill will each be equipped with two four cylinder triple-expansion engines, with cylinders 26, 43, 51 and 51 inches in diameter, by 42-inch stroke, steam be ing supplied by eight cylindrical boll eri, each 14 feet, 9 inches by 11 feet, fitted with forced draft. It is ex pected that the engines will have an indicated horse-power of 7,500, which will drive the vessels through the wa ter at the rate of 18 knots per hour, and enable them to make very rapid trips on the 322-mile run between New York and Boston. In the case of the Old Colony, the boiler insallation will be similar to that of the Massachusetts and Bunker Hill. The reciprocating engines are being built in the Cramp shops, Phil adelphia, while the building of the tur bines has been entrusted to the Quin tard Iron Works company, which firm Is making a specialty of turning out this modern type of marine engine. The installation of engines, etc., will be made at the Cramp yard In Philadel phia in all three cases. The vessels will be fitted with all mo dern marine appliances, including Williamson Bros, company's steam steering gear, the Nicholson Ship Log company's ship log, etc., etc. The new route to Boston will probably be opened early in June. ARRIVED IN SAN FRANCISCO. A telegram received here last evening announces the arrival in San Francisco of (William F. Hasselbach, the Chapel (street business man, after a two months' trip to China and Japan. He will return to his home in this city after a week's stay on the Pacific slope. Mr. Harelb;tch's telegram stated that lie was In excellent health, and that he bad enjoyed a delightful trip. "JOHN BRAGG, DECEASED." Successful Drama Presented by Cen tervllle Volunteer Fire Company.

At the annual meeting of the Grand lodge, N. E. O. P., held at Hartford the report of Grand Warden Hill of this city showed the order to be in prosper ous condition. ' Mr. Hill read his annual address, say ing among other things that for the fis cal year ended January 1, 1907, the or der throughout New England has made a net gain of 3,519 members. From March 1, 1906, to March 1, 1907, there had been 133 deaths. Many of the local lodges which had been very Inactive for a long time had shown great activ ity during the last year. The results of the prizes offered by the executive board were as follows: Sheridan, No. 218, of Waterbury, first prize, for the largest numerical gain, which was 99 new members; prize $25; the second prize, for the largest percentage of gain, Stamford lodge, No. 114, which had made a gain of 67; prize, $25; a prize of $15 for the second largest nu merical gain, Capitol lodge, of Hart ford, No. 301, which had a gain of 50; B. A. Bailey lodge of Danlelson, prize for the second largest percentage gaing, $15. This lodge had gained 67 1-2 per oent. Waterbury leads the list for lo cality gains, with 197 new members. Cit ies -which gave it a good run for the head prize included New Haven, New Britain, Norwich, Hartford, New Lon-. don and Stamford. Grand Warden Hill spoke especially for the field day, which was held last year at Chase island, Bridgeport, and of the public meetings, which have been held in many of the cities. He recommended another field day to be held this August. Jeremiah Wall, the grand secretary, reported that a grand lodge office had been established at 960 Grand avenue, New Haven. There are now eighty lodges, 12,728 members, and assets of $5,725.88, besides $530 in office furniture. During the year Grand Secretary Wall said ho had visited practically every lodge. The report of Grand Treasurer F. M. Drew of Ansonia showed a bal ance on April 1, 1906, of $969.88, and on April 1, 1907, of $195.64, after payments of $5,793.14.

With practical unanimity the re presentatives of organized labor in Massachusetts como forward in sup port of the proposed reform in the me thods of industrial insurance that shall bring its benefits more nearly within reach of the wage-earners and relieve them of the great and need less cost which the present system involves. How excessive is this cost, Mr. Brahdeis has shown in his vivid presentation of the case before the legislative committee on insurance. How annoying are the methods em ployed, Senator Prouty of Spencer illustrates in his statement that agents of industrial insurance companies cause so much trouble in the factories that they have to be excluded. And as for the alleged difficulties in the asso ciation of the business of industrial in surance with that of savings banks, more than one of these institutions is now ready to take up the work as soon as authority is conferred by law. I A permissive bill, such as that which 1 is now before the committee, should be reported and considered upon its merits. The system is correct upon practical commercial principles, and it is calculated to effect great and widespread good. From the Boston Post. FINDS HIDDEN SPRINGS. MERIDEN MAX POSSESSES MTS TERIOVS POWER. With Aid of Peach Tree Twig He Can Tell Land Owner Just Where to Dig for AVater Hereditary in Moore Family. There are tricks in all trades, and lots of little short cuts besides. To the city bred man the ways and means of the farmer sound strange. He will tell you of getting up bedtimes, milking a score of cows, delivering milk to a hundred customers and getting back to commence a long day's work on the farm at about the time you are get ting out of bed and beginning to think of breakfast. Every once in awhile we hear of something strange happpening on the farms, but the strangest has Just come to light. It is probably an old idea and has been known to ' the farmers for decades, but to others it is something unique and strictly up to data. When a farmer desires to locate wa ter on his place he procures the services of someone with the power to Indicate with assistance of a peach twig , Just where that water may be found. There are several farmers herabouts laying claim to this peculiar power and they seldom miss cue. They go about their work in a businesslike fashion and stand no laughing or back talk from anybody. All these gentlemen are equipped with a Y-shaped twig. This is cut from a peach tree and In some sections a witchhazel twig Is thought to be the thing. This is balanced In the two hands, one end pointing straight ahead. As the ground is reached where there is hidden water the end of the twig points downward and the spring is located. Not everybody can do this difficult trick, however, and the successful ones are in demand. Julius W. Yale can be credited with possessing this hidden power, and he has detected hidden springs more than once to the delight of his neigh bors. His son, J. Hobart Yale, is not so fortunate. He is not a very strong believer in the theory, but ad mits he has tried it. "In 1903 a man named Merrlman, who lives on Johnson's Hill, came tn my farm and said he could locate water," said Mr. Yale. "He had a peach twig cut out in the form of a Y, or sling shot. He told me to go down 22 feet and I would find water. I went 30 feet and did not find any. I procured a steam drill and went down 60 feet and did not find any. Then I went down 93 feet and got an abundance. "If I wanted to drill a well and the peacfi twig pointed to a particular spot I would go ahead there if I wanted the well at that place, but If I didn't I would pay no attention to the twig. "I cannot make the twig work in my hands, but my father can. A week ago he went to Jason Wilcox's farm with a twig for the purpose of assisting in locating a desirable spot for a well. One was found but. In such a location my father not digging for water as It was thought to be too deep. A wind mill would have to be purchased to get the water to the desired spot. "There are many farmers who laugh at the idea, but there are others who take considerable stock in it. I have seen it work well in a number of in stances." There is a man in Haddam by the name of Moore who has quite a repu tation for locating wells and the peo ple down that way almost believe him to be in league with the evil one so ac curate Is he in discovering hidden springs. For a generations Mr. Moore's ancestors, both male and female, for the women also possess the faculty, have located the spot where water could be found for nearly everyone who has built a house within a radius of 25 miles of his home. Mr. Moore cannot explain from whence the power comes, but he knows he possesses Is, that his father possess ed it and his great-grandfather was looked upon in his lifetime as almost in league with the "evil one" so ac curately would his hazal twig point to the spot where a spring -of sparkling water was always found.

There is a man living in a Boston suburb who makes himself sick in a variety of ways in order that he may test the healing powers of the medi cines manufactured by the company which employs him. Instead of being a shaky wreck from constant indulgence In foods taken purposely to provoke disorders, this vindicator of Infants' soothing syrups, headache cures, indigestion medicines and cold cures Is hale and hearty, a stout German past middle age, of a studious, phlegmatic temperament. His office is one of the , best of all at the headquarters of the company that employs him. There are oil paint ings, soft carpets and Turkish rugs, he has a library of medical volumes, windows filled with flowers,; and a pro fusion of bottles, glasses and crucibles distributed in the apartment. He has a variety of duties. Accord ing to the Boston Herald he sits In a draught or wanders about coatless to entice a cold, and then doses himself with cold cures. He contracts a vio lent headache In order to try the effi cacy of a headache cure which is to be put on the market. He acquires the headache by con centrating his mind so closely upon one subject that at the end of a few hours the nervous strain produces the pains in the head he has set out to obtain. Then he takes a dose of the medicine that is being experimented with, and watches results carefully, noting every effect in a book in order to make his report upon it. Often he has to contract aches that aren't headaches. It may be that a new medicine is to be brought out for indigestion or the scores of disor ders resulting from dyspepsia. The manufacturers desire to make a practical test of the formula foj their own satisfaction. The German tester goes to a restaurant late in the evening and gives an order that make the waiter's eyes bulge. "I eat lobster salad, then drink jnllk, which Is usually prohibited wlthsuch a salad," he says cheerily, in telling about it. "To make it more certain I have vinegar mixed with the milk, and follow it all with a Welch rabbit. Lifter that, the only thing I have to do is wait for results. "They are usually not long in coming. Soon I have violent pains in the chest, a feeling of a heavy weight lying upon it, with sharp pains shooting across my body every second. Of course it is agony while it endures, but I take a dose of the remedy to relieve it. "If it gives me relief, I note all the circumstance of my sensations to the minutest detail, and if it doesn't I do the 8a me. You have no conception of what a delightful feeling It is to ex perience the contrast of intense pain and quick relief. I know that feeling well." There are from seventy-five to a hundred drugs mentioned in materia medlca for disorders of indigestion, and the German tester has tried all of them. Some of the things he has to do wMild make an ordinary courageous man look about for the cyclone cellar. For an eyewash, he hag more than once thrown sand into his eyes to pro duce Inflammation in order to test the wash as to its relief giving properties. Ho even imagines himself a baby oc cassionly In order to try the Infants' medicines. He drugs himeslf by com pounding a sleeping potion of Infants' soothing syrup. "You may say," he explains, "that because a thing soothes me it does not necessarily follow that it would soothe a baby. Nevertheless, my results have invariably proved that what was good for me was good for the infant; but of course in milder doses. "You see, we cannot get a baby to experiment or even If we desired one, which we don't. A baby could not tell Its sensations or impressions after it took the medicine, which Is neces sary to the success of the experi ment" The man who voluntarily submits to "trying it on the dog" is not at all a dense animal, so robust that nohting can harm him, and willing from ig norance to sacrifice himself in this strange way. He is himself a chemist, a skillful one. That makes him all the more val uable, as he can record with accuracy the sensations before and after tak ing a medicine and the results obtain ed. And of course, he knows well the properties of each remedy he takes, what Its effect should be, how great a dose is required and how violent his ailment is. How lame such a man to embrace an occupaiton that carries with it so many disagreeable features?, He will tell you himself that before he got his present berth, he was a wreck, a victim of chronic indigestion, a wasted shadow of the man he had been in early youth. "I have been in the manufacturing drug business myBelf for twenty-seven years he says. "But things went wrong, my health gave out, my stomach was gone and soon I had not even em ployment. "It was then that I conceived the plan of offering myself as a subject for the manufacturers of proprietary medicines. The first to whom I ap plied said htat he would be glad to obtain such a man who had a knowl edge of chemistry, and that it was a great difficulty to find him. "I at once offered myself an dhave I been with the firm ever since. That was some years ago, and you can see for youself what excelelnt health I am in now1." "It appears to me,' remarked the tourist, "that the superficial aspect of your community is misleading as an in dex of its sterling basic qualities." "Stranger," said Three-finger Sam, "if you're goin' to linger around here you want to talk quicker'n that. Too many men has been accusin' others of falsl fyin' an' getting' away with it under cover of big words." Washington Star. BRITISH JUSTICE IS SWIFT AND SURE CASE OF RAISER CITED AS AS ILLUSTRATION OF LAWS WORKINGS. Judge's Cnrge to Jury Reduced Insan ity Plea to Nothing Jury Told Not to Consider It If They Found That the Accused Intended to Kill Grave Question Raised. , For those if there be any who ap prove of the American manner of ;con ductlng criminal trials, the rapidity with which the murderer of one of London's best-known merchants was brought to conviction ( must be shock ing, or even alarming. It was a case that here would, or might, have pro vided ingenious counsel with number less excuses for dragging out the trial. To begin with, panel after panel would have been examined before the jury box was filled, and then would have come the weary confrontation of medical expert with medical expert, endlessly discussslng the delicate shades of mania and the degree of re sponsibility each left in a man who had been able to live among his felldws without seeming to be anything more than queer and vicious. But there was none at all of this un der the English code. The Jury was se cured, the evidence of both sides pre sented the opposing lawyers summed up, the judge delivered his charge, the Jury brought in 'a verdict of guilty, and sontence was pronounced all within a working day of less than five hours. It is, Indeed a contrast, but there is some little reason for suspecting that the British have gone, If not as far one way as we have the other, at least fur ther than Is compatible with the attain ment of Justice. The result in the Whitely case commends itself to com mon sense, but there have been other cases in England in recent years that ended thus promptly, not in the pun ishment of the guilty, but in the inflic tion of cruel wrong on men perfectly in nocent, and whose perfect Innocence would certainly have been revealed un der our more too deliberate system of procedure. And it must be remembered that the man Rayner had no money of his own or at his command. Had he been killed by Whlteley, instead of Whiteley by htm, the chances are that even British law would have been a little more de liberate, wttile; on the other hand, a penniless and friendless murderer here often finds his Journey to the chair or the gallows a brief one. Even those who are most impatient with American delays In criminal trials must have been startled to read that the English Judge, in his charge, told the jury that they must dismiss -the question of sanity or insanity from their minds, and must find the prisoner giulty if they decided that he drew his pistol with the intention of killing. As a raving maniac can retain full knowl edge of the uses of pistols this is cer tainly reducing the insanity plea to nothing and is no better than mediaeval barbarism. One can only hope that the dispatches were inaccurate at this point.

Students Fire on Cats Which Trouble Their Study. Two Yale students, Earl A. Coyne, a iSheff. freshman, and John Baird, an academio student, were In the police court yesterday, because they sought to have peace, even though they had to fight for it. The fight was against cats, the weapon a rifle, and here in lay the cause of the trouble. There is a law somewhere which says one shall not shoot a gun within the city limits, not even at an unmusical cak at 2 a. , m. These two simple students of 47 Lake place, however, driven almost to com plete despair by the cats which dis turbed their study, andv wnat Is worse, their sleep, opened Are right upon a large black feline, who was promenad ing the back yard fence. The shots went wide, strange to s,y, with the one result of stirring up one of the neigh bors. He called in Patrolman Reilly, and the shooters were placed under ar rest. Judge Mathewson waB moved by the story of the long suffering and Impos ed a very light fine of $1, with costs remitted. He advised the young men; to procure a permit and wage the war with the sanction of the law. Other wise they must employ the time-honored bootjack. ALDERMEN TO MEET.

DINNER GUEST MUST BE ON TIMEJ TIME, Closely parallel to the fag end of the Euston road, and visible from it at various turnings, is a street which be longs to few men's London. It is a dingy, granite paved, populous street of no attraction, the sort of street in, which you might expect to see on a fine day a dancing bear. - Yet this street has known better times and eager guests. In the house he knew as No." 43, now obliterated by a big warehouse, Dr. William Kitchener entertained his fellow wits and gour mets. He had ample means to ride his three hobbies optics, cookery and music. His dinners were often elabor ate experiments in cookery, and tha guests had to recognize this fact. Five minutes past 6 was the minute, and if a guest came late the janitor had irrevocable orders not to admit him, for it was held by the mythical "Com mittee of Taste," of whom Kitchener was "secretary," that the perfection of some of the dishes was often so evan escent that "the delay of one minute after their arrival at the meridian of concoction will render, them no longer worthy of men of taste."
