Madrid, July 25. When the body of
Christopher Coiumbus, after the Span

Spain from Havana and placed in a
magnificent sepulchre in the Cathedral
at Seville i,he Spaniards, smarting un
der the memory of their defeat, placed
the following epitaph on the tomb:
"When ungrateful America separated
itself from the mother country, Seville
took back his bones."
Now that the ill-feeling against
America has largely disappeared it is
proposed to replace this epitaph with

a sagacious business man, will be con
gratulated upon his purchase. The
land on Orange street in this location
Is valued at $1,000 a foot and the prop

Houses of Prominent Southlngton Rest,

(Special to The Journal and Courier.)'
Southlngton, July 25. A man has
made a visit In Southlngton and hia
presence has caused considerable worry
on. the part of a few residents. He has
marked with chalk the houses of Char
les Campbell, M. B. Wilcox, A. J. Bish

has been a very peculiarly acting fel
low about town for the past few days
and he Is probably the person who did
the marking. The sign is In the shape
of a cross and would give the impres

purpose. It is the cause of great anx

The appraisers of the estate 'of Wil
Ham A. T. Smith filed their inventory
in the probate court yesterday after
noon. The appraisers are Oscar Edger
ly and Charles H. Stanton; the admin
istrator is James M. English.
The only real property is a half In

valued at $4,500, from which Is de
ducted a mortgage of $1,750. The per

$2,000; material in unfinished contract
work, $1,000; cash in banks, $3,200; and
outstanding accounts, $2,000. The total
estate is valued at $10,950.
One of the interesting Items in the
Inventory is 40 shares of DeForest

f zero.
Although the thermometer did not get
above 90 degrees yesterday, the day
was In many respects one of the hot
test of the summer, the humidity being
very high, and very little breeze stir
ring. In every part of the city, peo
pie felt the warmth more than on any
other day for some time, and the trol
ley cars were crowded during the en
tire afternoon and evening by people
who sought the cool air of the shore re
sorts.
'Several heat prostrations off minor
Importance were reported from various
parts of the city during the late aft-
ternoon. The most serious case was
that of Bernard Smith, who lives at 118
Meadow street, who was taken sudden
ly after a short valk In the boiling
sun. The police ambulance was call
ed and he was takemto Grace hospital.
He Is 65 years of age and somewhat
feeble, and serious consequences were
at first feared. Treatment at the hos
pital brought him around all right
however, and he was taken back to his
home during the evening. j
In the center of the city, the heat
was particularly felt, and the exodus
was large. Toward sunset Director Coe
of the department of public works put
a large force of men to work waterin
the Green, and the streams of water
from three lines of hose aided material
ly in cooling the atmosphere.
One way In which the heat was most
uncomfortably felt was n the clouds
of dust which were raised on all the
busy streets. The sprinkling facilities
were absolutely Inadequate to keeping
the pavements moist, and the torrid
sun licked up the water that was
spread on at the usual intervals, al
most as soon as it touched the ground
All over the state, late, telegraphic
advices Indicated that the day had been
a hard one, although New Haven seems
to have suffered about as much as any
place in Connecticut.

Hartford, July 25. Thy as they could
neither branch of the general assembly
was able to close up business, and as
both stand adjourned until next Tues
dav afternoon the likelihood is that
after a short session then a recess will
be taken until Friday when as three
legislative days will have intervened
the governor can prorogue the body,
Precedent, seems to Indicate that this
can be done, otherwise the final ad
journment will have to come the fol

siderable excitement In brth branches
which would have been intense had
not the mugginess of both chambers,
and the 'heat which wilted both linen
and tempers of the legislators, affected
the spirit of those who usually are
keen to relish the verbal combats. Tho
colloquy In the senate between Sena
tors Judson and McNeil, both of whom
had the floor at different times on
questions of personal privilege, brought
out some plain language with a climax
which was equivalent to the passing of
the lie. This was probably the last ref
erence which will be made In the senate
to the incidents which surrounded the
organizing of that body, Incidents
which time and again have been refer
red to.
In the house the committee reports

being unfavorable reports, a: :' in ad

for two matters which are left on by
suggestion of Mr. Gunn of Milford in
Mllford in the hope, as he expressed it,
of forcing the judiciary committee to
report a bill giving the governor power
to name a commission to investigate
the subject of a public utilities com
mission for this state. If the judiciary

house seems very anxious to act upon

Young New Yorker Had
Eaten Only Twice in
Four Days Taken
to Hospital.
James Cronan, a teamster from New
York city, who came to New Haven on
Monday and has since spent his time
vainly searching for employment, was
found lying on the Green yesterday af
ternoon, exhausted from starvation. He
said that he had been unable to obtain
work of any kind, and that he had
eaten only twice since leaving New
Tork.
The police ambulance was summoned
and the sick man was taken to Grace
hospital, where it was found that he
was suffering from Intestinal trouble In
addition to his general weakness from
lack of food. He will be carefully cared
for, and will be fed sparingly for sev
eral days, lest the shock of introducing
food Into his system too suddenly
should prove serious.
Cronan Is a young man, about twen
ty-two years of age, slender and Of
fairly good appearance save for the
emaciation which has resulted from his
enforced fast. The hospital authorities

lightning fast, the water under the

the flying feet along on tnelr journey.

Two Successful Candidates
for Assistant Building
Inspector.
The civil service examining board
held a meeting last evening and passed
upon the papers submitted by the can
didates for the office of assistant build
ing inspector. Two of the applicants
for tho job came through the exam
ination successfully, Vincent A. Ma
her and Joseph F. O'Brien. Maher is
a mason, living at 2S3 Sherman avenue,
and O'Brien is a brick layer, living at
231 Franklin street.
Anothony Carroll was one of the
candidates, but he failed to qualify.
There were two other unsuccessful ap
plicants.
A statement from Mr. Carroll was
submitted to the board, in which he
complained that the nature of many of
tho questions asked by the board was
technical and foreign to the work of
the inspector. He also poked some
fun, in the communication, at the
building ordinances of the city, on
which the. examination was supposed to
hn haseff. claiming that they were il
logical and unpractical in many in
stances, and were generally construed
liberally by tho contractors. He claimed
that it would be absolutely impossible
to put up a building which conformed
strictly to the ordinances.
The board declined to consider Mr
Carroll's communication.
WILL NOT RUN AGAIN
Niantio, July 25. A patriotic meet
ingi was held this evening in the f. M.
A. tent, Governor Woodruff being
the principal speaker. The meeting
was arranged by Chaplains Mlel of the
First Infantry and Lewis of the Sec
ond, and was attended by a large rep
resentatlon from all the organizations
in the camp.
Brigadier General Frost in introduc
ing the governor said that he knew the
governor as a soldier of the Connecti
cut National Guard, that he had been
an enthusiastic member of the guard
and the fact of his arriving at the of
fice of chief executive of the state held
out hone for similar- advancement to
every mamber In the guard.
Governor Woodruff in his speech said
that the national guard formed the
backbone of the government and that
the citizens of the states depended on
the militia even more than many legis
lattve organizations. The week here
he said, had been a great one for him
and he had watched the work of the
men more closely than any one might
realize. It had been a pleasure for
him to accompany the brigade on its
march to the Chester's farms, and that
he had watched their work while on
the march, and also the tent pitching,
at camp. The militia, aaciea tne gov
ernor, is a ereat benefit to the state.
and the state is willing to do every
thing for the welfare of the Connecti
cut National uuarci. tie naa naa
hnnnv moment yesterday when he
heard that the legislature had appro
priated money for a new armory for
the First regiment and he predicted
that in time all the military organize
tions of the state would be better hous
ed. He said he was here to stay the
week out and hoped to meet with them
again next year.
CHANGES ONTHE BERKSHIRE
OFFICIALS ADVANCED
(Special to The Journal and Courier.)
. Hartford, July 25. The echoes of tha
sensational controversy jn the senata
today between Senators Judson and
McNeil in which the former passed tha
lie to the latter, rang through tbe
chambers and the lobbies until the last
group of legislators left the capltol
late this afternoon.
It was far more sensational thaw
Senator Atwater's attack on Attorney,
Eobbins "as the king of lobbyists" ear-
in the session and there are soma
that think more and far greater sensa
tions may be sprung between now and;,
the short interval before the legislature
prorogued.
The incident when considered la full
nowledge of some of the things that 1
transpired in one of the rooms of tha
capltol is of greater public purport
than would at first appear, according
to several members of the legislature.
who closely watched the course of
events. ' ; .
One of these members stated emphat
ically that the hand of the New Haven
road was clearly shown in what hap
pened. Gathered in the lieutenant-
governors office, he said, were Attor-,
neys Bobbins, Roraback,, Eobinson and
Page and from it the behind-the-door:
campaign was conducted which round
ed up Mr. McNeil to. make the state
ment which; brought down upon ' hto ,
the Ho of Mr. Judson. .
When Senator Judson commenced his
statement and the significance of it bo-
came apparent there was some scurry
ing through the marble lobbies.
Senators were sent for and short Im
portant conferences held.
Finally, later in the session, Senator
McNeil took the floor on a question of
personal privilege and declared he was
present at Mr. Mellen's residence.
when Mr. Judson asked his help and
aid in getting a senate committee
chairmanship.
Was this the result of tljg conferences
held earlier? Was this the hand of tha
New Haven road? asked a member of
the legislature tonight. . "It seems,"
he said; "that Senator McNeil was re-,
luctant to make that statement but it
had to be done. Did he sacrifice him
self to save his railroad friends? Thai
Is the question."
J. W. Carr Appointed The
Assistant Superintendent.

Samuel J. Nathanson stated last
night to a Journal and Courier reporter
that he was not a candidate and would
