The grand list of the state, Including the board of equalization ad ditions, is $791,769,970.. These additions are the result of careful inquiry and systematic action base upon the best information that could be obtained at this time.

Several towns have made a valuation in accordance with the statutes requirements this past year. All the town of this list, says the board in its report, should take similar action and obey the law which requires all property to be listed as near as possible at "the full market value."

MURPHY FREED BY MATHEWSON Discharged From Man slaughter Charge After City Court Hearing. MOTORMAN ON STAND Testifies That He Was Sig naled to Go Ahead and Saw White Lantern.

Murphy, the twenty-one , year old motorman, charged with manslaughter in connection with the killing of fifteen year old Frederick Behler in the grade crossing accident on Shelton avenue on May 23. The hearing came up to deter mine whether the evidence against the accused was strong enough to warrant his being bAund over to the superlo court for trial on the charge anade against him. Judge Mathewson decid ed that it was not. Murphy himself went on the stand late in the afternoon. He testified that while he had received a one bell signal to bring his car to a stop it was fol lowed by two bells to go ahead. Ho claimed that when he received the one bell he shut off the power, and applied the brakes, but on the second signal started up again. Another tiio.ee of evidence upon which considerable discussion hinged was the waving of a white light aa a signal by Flagman Costello. He testified that a white light, while it meant clear track for the railroad train, was the custom ary danger signal for trolleys.

About a dozen witnesses altogether were heard during the session. City Attorney Simpson for the state and At torney Fitzgerald for the accused sum med up and occupied about an hour. Attorney Fitzgerald laid special stress on the second signal bell to go ahead, and the waving of a white instead of red lantern. FOUR APPOINTMENTS. Mayor Baa.

They didn't come back and the turmoil in the halt Increased. Some cried out for a roll call, others called out strike and others Cursed in several different languages. The meeting opened about 8 o'clock and was attended by 250 Journeymen Darbers. Of this about twelve were desirous of having a strike, A proposi tion for a strike with an appropria tion from the treasury of $Z for each man was turned down without being voted Upon. The report of a committee which has been trying to arrange for a half holiday with the master barbers was accepted.

Then commenced the serious time of tho meeting, every Uttio while some one breaking in with the cry "strike.'' Every motion offered for a compromise was rejected and discussion became hot. No one wanted to accept the pro positions! of the master barbers, and tne right was over what steps the journeymen should take. . The barbers on the outskirts of the city did not wish to have a strike for the master barbers are willing to give them a half day off. Those about the center of the city were active for a strike until the demands of the Jour neymen have been granted. Finally another motion was made for a strike, several amendments were of fered and it was moved to adjourn. The latter motion was carried and theh the fight commenced over the roll call.

Not Raised Money Fast Enough to Suit Con ference. NO NEW CHURCH YET Local A; M. E. Minister Makes an Interesting Disclosure. irue nature or tne dlhlculty ex isting between the Rev. J. W. Davis, pastor for five years of the Foote street A. M,. E. Zion church and the New England .conference of the African M, E. church, became fully known last night. lAccordlng to a statement Issued by the members of the conference Rev. Mr. Davis was appointed pastor of the Foote street church five years ago with the distinct understanding that he was to erect a new church building. Bishop Hood, president of the conference, was much dlspeased with the slow progress made by Mr. Davis and also with his management of the , finances of the church. It is reported that he said that he did not consider that he could rely any longer on Mr. Davis to handle the situation. He accordingly transferred him to a large church is Poughkeepsle, N. Y.,' where, it is reported, that he said there is no debt and all that Mr. Davis would have to do would be to preach. Mr. Davis does not relish this ar raignment of his administration and was so much dissatisfied that he ten dered his resignation to the conference. He believes that his action will be vin dicated this time. In a statement Is sued last night he alleges that some person, Presiding Elder Biddle, It is understood, misinformed the bishop as to the facts in the case. The imme diate occasion for the breaking out of the trouble wag the raising of a mort gage of 11,000 with which to secure the title to the church property, which Mr. Davis says he found did not belong to the trustees. Mr. Davis has, many friends wno believe In him implicitly. Acting for Bishop Hood, who was obliged to leave early. Associate Bishop A. Walter, made a statement relative t the controversy with Rev; J. W. Davis at the conference reception held in Warner hail last night. Bishop Wal ter said, announcing the appointments: "It Is one of the rules of our order that ns pastor can lay claim to any charge for a period longer than one year. Any man who comes into the conference makes a promise to abide by the law. If he refuses we tell him as kindly and firmly as we can that we cannot re ceive him. The obligation is then his own. Tho bishop may re-appoint him, but that is optional with him. "You have seen in the dally press a statement in which the bishop has been charged with being a party to a dark plot again one of the members of the conference. The bishop has commis sioned me to say that he is ready to stand before the judgment throne and (Continued on Eighth Page.) TO AB0LISHB0TTLE NIGHT- YALE SOPHOMORES ACT Professor Gruener and H. P.
