The net result oif this, the tenth day of the Haywood trial, were the Dartial weeding out o the talesmen of the second special ve nire entitled to statutory exemption, andthe partial qualification of one Jur or. The examination of the venire has not proceeded very far but it shows that the recreation of interest In the Steunenberg murder is disqualifying many citizens for Jury service in the case, and indicates that the publicity given to examination of talesmen has widely Increased popular knowledge as to the means of artistically avoiding Jury service. The sixty men of the second special venire presented themselves at 2 o'clock this afternoon and when it was an nounced that the court would hear ex cuses which clearly came within the statute and when he made good his announcement the band of petitioners melted very quickly. Five petitions .were flatly denied, nine were tempora rily denied; six were granted. The other three did not bother to present their excuses. Then began the attempt to, nil seat No. 9, made vacant by the release of Juror drrin Cole, on account of illness. The first five talesmen had opinions that would require evidence to change one of them said his opinion would last regardless of the evidence and they all went down on challenge from the state. . Early in the examination Clarence Darrow, for t!ie defense, asserted that James H. Hawley, for the state, was seeking to lead talesmen to qualifica tion by improper questioning, Judge Wood overruled his objection, but Dar row . continued to nddress the court. Mr. Hawley bristled, and for a few mo ments there was a promls of a scrim mage. But the court checked the In cipient row. Next the clerk drew the names of four talesmen whose petitions for excuse had just been temporarily denied in order to give them time to got certificates from physicians as to the illness of themselves or their wives. It was agreed that they shauld all be pased until tho-court finally decides on their applications. The tenth and last talesman as Henry Curtis, a farmer, and he gave every indication of qualifying. Senator Borah led him over a long examina tion that showed him to be free from opinion or bias, and open-minded. Just ns the state passed him for cause, and he went to the hands of the defense, the trial was adjourned until to-morrow. What, amounts to roughly one-third of the new venire was exhausted this afternoon, and some of the men who watched the trial believe that this ven ire will nat fill the one certain, and nine or ten prospective vacancies in the Jury. After a talesman has been qual ified for Mr. Coles' plane, the state will use its seventh peremptory challenge, which will be the thirteenth challenege out of the twenty allotted. Mrs! Haywood and her daughters Sat beside the prisoner all the afternoon. C. A. X. BILLS TUESDAY. (Continued from First Page.) June 19, the " session shall adjourn without, day."

Hartford, May 23. It is learned from a member of the judiciary committee that there is very little hope that that body will agree upon any report on the various telephone matters before it this session. The committee is hopelessly divided in opinion as to the advisability of permitting new competitors to enter the state field which is now held exclu sively, by the Southern 'New England Telephone company. The committee instead will report on a recommendation that a commission of three or more be appointed to inves tigate the whole question and report its findings to the next general assem EXCISE REPORTS HEARD. Saloonkeeper Need Not Remove Screens from Shops, Hartford, May 23. It was the excise committee's time to make reports to day, and a number of important bills came in with unfavorable reports at tached, and without debate the house rejected the bills.

No comment was made as the bill went into the waste basket. Other adverse reports were on bills to compel the closing of saloons on Christmas and Good Friday, for clos ing saloons between midnight Satur day, and 5 a. m. Monday, which is al ready covered in a law; another to put private clubs, societies and corpora tions under the license laws, and for the appointment of an inspector and deputy inspector of liquors.

Senator McGovern Favorn More Town Support of Inanne. Hartford, May 23. Senator McGovern in the senate to-day In asking for the passage of a bill concerning the support of Insane persons said that this bill wculd probably prevent the large out lay for the insane hospitals at Nor wich and Mlddletown as proposed by two other bills. . Both institutions want arpropriatlons for new buildings, owing to inadequate accommodations. The Middletown hospital wants $500,000 and the Norwich hospital $850,000. The bill which was passed provides that towns shall contribute $3 Instead of $2 a week for the care of patients, and the representative of the insane person or their estate shall pay $3. The increased amount, said Senator McGov ern,. will relieve the financial burden wcrse. Costello has been flagman at on the state and moreover there will be the crossing for nine years, and has a tendency of county authorities to care . never before been concerned in a ser- for patients within the county Instead ; ious accident. of shipping them to the state hospitals, Confident That Both Houses Will Pass It Despite Report. The saving would amount to $100,000 a year. TRAIN HITS A CAR. (Continued from First Page.) this morning. The train men will then bo called In. Ho said that he had found that the motorman did not brins his car to a full stop, as the rules re quired, before trying to go over the crossing. Murphy, it was stated by Superintendent Judge last night, had bten in the employ of the company on ly about three months. ' He had made the trip over this crossing five times yesterday previously to the time of the accident and should have been familiar with the place. He was considered an efficient employe. , He is twenty-one years old. Murphy was slightly In jured, receiving a cut under the left eve. He was in a barber shop near the scene of the accident when found by Officer John Allen, and arrested. The train was in charge of Engineer G. B. Camp of 221 Union avenue, West Haven, and Conductor C. R. Neale of 222 Whalley avenue. The fireman was J. J. Cavanaugh of Union avenue, West Haven. None of these men could be ft-und last night to tell what they knew about the collision. Mcrrls Costello, cf 122 Starr street, the one-armed flagman at this cross ing was seen by a. reporter last night. He said that he had signalled the car to sloo but that he did not really know whether or not' k had stopped. The train, he said, was'going at a very slow rate or the results might have been This is believed to be the first time that a fatal collision has occurred be tween a train and trolley car in this city, and the thing caused" no end ot talk last night. The trolley officials took hold of the matter In a thorough way. General Manager Punderford anj Acting Manager Harlan, together with Superinttndent Judge worked until 12 o'clock trying to locate the blame for the collision. Railroad Commissioner Andrew F. Gates was in this city, and he was at the nollce station for a short time. He was'asked if he knew of the particu lars cf the catastrophe. He replied that he had not been out to the scene, and that all he knew was by hearsay. He understood that the tlagman wag doing hiB duty at the time, but he made no remarks on the petition presented sev eral times to the commissioners for the abolishment of the grade crossings In the vicinity of the collision. Hartford, May 23. Senator Homan of New Haven, .has an untavoraoie re port on the calendar from the com mittee, on fisheries and game, validat- 1 ing titles to oyster grounds, which have been made in the past, but under the present statutes are ineffective, me law at present invalidates titles grant ed to stock companies, when stock holders of the company reside outside of the state. In the case of the Ameri can Oyster company, of which Sena tor Homan is ' president, two of the stockholders are non-residents, one be ing a citiien of Maine and! the other of 'Rhode Island. Senator Homan 'wants the companies holding oyster designa tions placed on the same footing as other stock1- companies in ; thq state whose titles to property are nof in validated by reason of stockholders living outside of the state. The flsh-i eries and game committee reported adversely on the senator's view, but the bill was placed on the calendar at Senator Homan's request and he Is confident of .carrying the bill through both houses. The committee on. appropriations In the session of 1901 had a reunion and dinner at Heubleln's Wednesday even ing. The gentlemen In attendance were former Governor Henry Roberts, Sena tor Andrew N.
