((Special Journal-Courier News Service.)
Southlngton, July 26. The selectmen
liave decided to replace the old wooden
bridge on West Center street with a
new Iron bridge. The old one has long
been unfit for usage but on account of
the heavy expenses of the board of late
the authorities decided to wait. The
bridge Is now rotten and sways as a
team or even a few persons cross It.
The present one was built twenty
years ago and has had to be planked
every three years since Us construction.
This', necessitates about 400 feet of
planking and the repair of twenty years
amounts to an enormous price.
The decision of the selectmen meets
with the approval of all residents
across the river as the place is a dan
gerous spot. The new bridge is to be
built by the Berlin Iron Bridge com
pany and will last fifty years. The
floor is to be of concrete, similar to the
one over the Qulnnipiac In Plantsville.
The representative of the factory was
here to-day and estimated the cost of
the bridge. It will be built immediately.

FINE YACHT RACING
Queen With BRrr at Helm Defeats In
gomar and Elmina.
New York, July 26. To-day's racing
in the regatta of the Larchmont Yacht
club was productive of good sport. J.
R. Maxwell's 90-footer Queen with
Maxwell himself at the wheel, won a
great race from Morton F. Plant's In
gomar and F. F. Brewster's Elmina. .
The Queen led the Ingomar over the
flrlsh line by 59 seconds and the Elmi
na by 1 minute 41 seconds.
As the Queen gets time allowance she
won by a larger margin, while Elmina
also beat Ingomar by 12 seconds on cor
rected time. The Queen sailed the 30
1-2 miles In three hours, an average of
over ten knots on every point of calling.
The veteran skipper, Charlie Barr,
sailed the Ingomar and gave Maxwell a
hard tassel, but the amateur won in
splendid style. The Ingomar led all the
way on the first round closely pressed
by the Queen, which had outfooted the
Elmina early in the race. In the sec
ond round the Queen passed her rival
and clevely outsailed her. '
the public was a iiHght lowering of ,th
colors flying in the stiff breeze and
storm of this morning. .

public seat near the scene1. On it was
scribbled in a rambling hand "Away;

police. I have killed children in Bel

The note was attached to the seat by
means of a sharp single Bcissors blade,
and it is assumed that the crimes were
committed with the other half.
AU the available police and detectives
were ordered to scour the neighborhood.

The man was then taken In a cab
guarded by police to the police sta
tion. The crowd outside the station,
believing him to be the murderer, at
tempted to drag him from the vehicle
and lynch him, and he was only saved
by the policemen drawing their swords
and holding the crowd at bay. The
people then attempted to storm the
station, and the prisoner was removed
to the central station for security.
To-morrow, should the two wounded
children not die meantime, he will
again be confronted by them. Experts
who have examined the note found on

that it was written by a madman. They
