rence of Labor Commissioner Neil

anding reached by the local union ex-
utive officers, Sunday, Immediately

rstandlng was reached Sunday,
trough which authority was given to

Strikers.
MAY HAVE WORK
IN OTHER CITIES
Union Men Still Claim That
Building Work is Seri
ouly Held Up
Here.
There was an unusually large at
tendance of members of the United
Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joln-
ersiat an Important meeting of the lo
cal union, No. 79, last night, when a
vote was taken to continue the finan
cial support of the striking mill and
bench hands who went out the first of
June, demanding better treatment
from the mill owners.
The feature brought out In the
meeting, it is said, by the men Is that
the mill owners are harder pushed
than ever in the matter of handling
thoir business, although recent re
ports have been given out Indicating a
contrary condition. Not more than
one-sixth of their work can they
handle, It Is said, and the statement
was made last night that considerable
work now done at the mills is returned
because of poor workmanship.
There was a regular Monday night
meeting, at Union hall, and over 350
men crowded It full, and paid their
weekly assessment, which has run for
the month. The men are contributing
$1 each to the aid of the strikers, and
from headquarters at Indianapolis
each striker receives $6 per week,
which, added to the $170 per week
supplied locally, Indicates that the
union men are well supported.
Twenty-five of the mill and bench
hands who struck the first of June are
still Idle, but the other 100 of the local
order, No. 611, have secured work In
other cities.
The men now working In the mills
Wiere, the strikers claim, are merely
cheap mill hands capahle only of run
ning the machines, and doing this In
such a way that work Is returned.
"Outside men," or those who do the
finishing work In house woodwork, are
said to be almost altogether lacking.
As a result, with the large amount of
building started In New Haven this
year, many houses are now half fin
ished and only completed as far as the
plastering, because neither the wood
work nor the men to handle the job
are obtainable.
How long this condition will last
seems to be as uncertain as when the
strike began some two and a half
months ago, but by their action taken
Inst night the union men evidently
believe they have the right of the mat
te?. They claim that the mill owners
were merely assuming a bold front in
the story of last week that the strike
had died a natural deal and that their
business was now running smoothly.
PAVING COMMISSION AGAIN
TO TALK TAR DRESSING
Board Will Also Meet on
Monday to Open Bids for
Three Streets.
There is to be another meeting of
the Permanent Paving commission this
morning at 11 o'clock in City hall when
the subject of tar dressings for new

cussed and probably a conclusion
rea6hed as to whether they shall be
ordered for the streets which the com
mission has recently ordered paved. In
addition to those which were recently
contracted for the commission will pro
bably consider ordering the coveting
for Shelton avenue which was paved
about a i-ear ago.

more street paving bids Is set for next
Monday morning at the same hour as
the meeting to-day. At this time bids
will be opened for the paving of State
street with bithullthlc pavement from
Elm street to Neck bridge, for a crush
ed stone pavement on Carlisle from
Liberty street to Howard avenue and

New York, Aug. 12. U. S. District
Attorney Stlmson to-day filed in the
United States circuit court In this city
a petition that E. H. Harriman and Ot
to H. Kuhn, the latter of the firm of
Kuhn, Loeb & Company, be summoned
into court to show cause why thoy
not answer certain question relating to
the conitrol of the Chicago & Alton
railroad, These questions were asked
during the interstate commerce com
mission's Investigation of the Chicago
& Alton several months mgo. Mr. Stlm
eon acted for Attorney General Bona
parte In filing the petition.
The questions to which the govern
ment demands answers from Mr. Har
riman and Mr. Kuhn refer to the
mirchase of the controlling interest
In the Chicago and Alton and the Illi
nois Central bv the union pacinc. At
the hearing Mr. Harriman was asked
what part of the stock so disposed of
he owned." This question, on advice
of his counsel, he refused to answer,
The attorneys representing Mr. Har
riman stated that this was a private
affair of Mr. Harriman's and the In
terstate commerce commission had no
authorltv to ask the question.
Mr. Harriman also refused to an
swe"r questions as to the amount of
his holding of Union Racine prerer
red, nor would he state the holdings
of H. H. Rogers, H. C. Frlck and
himself in Atchison, Topeka and San

Harriman declined to answer had to
do with his Interest In the purchase
of 105.000 shares of Illinois Central,
the famous 10 per cent, dividend of
the Southern Pacific road and his own
profits occasioned by the sudden rise
In this stock following the declaration
of this dividend.

UNEARTH OLD
CUSTOMHOUSE
Foundation Walls of Colonial
Building Uncovered in
Excavations for New
Warehouse.
SPANISH COINS
ARE ALSO FOUND
Brick Pier Which. Used to
Hold Back Tide Intact
Ten Feet Below the
Street.
The laborers engaged In excavating
for the foundation of the big new four
story building which Miner, Read &
Garretto are to erect as an addition to
their large warehouse on State street
corner of Water steet, dug down deep
late yesterday afternoon and exposed
to the view of the many citizens who
stopped to look, a part of the remnants
of the foundations of New Haven's old
custom ouse building which dated
back to colonial days. The heavy atone
steps worn by the tread of people who
have long since gone the way of all the
earth, were exposed to view as also a
heavy solid brick pier which was a sup
port to the ancient structure. State
street years ago was about ten feet
lower at this point than now, the grade
having been raised on account of the
high grade of the approach to the Wa
ter street bridge of the New York, New
Haven and Rarttford railroad.
The laborers also unearthed a number
of ancient United States copper cents
some considerably over one hundred
years old; also one ancient and imuch
corroded copper .Spanish coin. The
coins were viewed wi;h much Interest
and they were found about where the
entrance to .the old custom house was.
For the foundations of the new build.
Ing of Miner, Read & Garrette, piles
will be driven, although no water or
dampness at the bottom of the cellar la
in sight, but the ground there is "nrnde
ground" and the harbor waiter flowed
around there once upon a time, Piles
were driven for supports to the firm's
present building. To the second floor
of the new building the firm will trans
fer their office quarters and the first
floor will be used for warehouse pur
poses. The two topmost floors will toe
devoted ito stbrage purposes Instead of
hiring storage rooms elsewhere as the
firm has had to do owing to Its Increase
of business.
The old custom house building above
spoken was a one-story and' a hall
structure and not nearly as large as
the. old! custom house building across
the street which is now a venerable
structure and which' was In Its day
considered quiite Imposing.
HITCH NOT 10 IMPOSTS
THIS THE NEW EDICT
Horses ' Shake Welsbach
Mantels and This Must
Cease.
The flat has gone forth that all hitch
ing of horses to lampposts, which, lc
appears, has become too much of a fad
In this city of late, must be put an
end to at once. In order to accomplish
this the police officers have been In
structed to warn any owner of a horse
so tied that for a repetition of such of
fense he will be prosecuted, and to ar
rest any one on the second offense. The
reason for the order that has been
promulgated is that the hitching of
horses to these posts Is believed to
be the cause of the frequent breaking
of Welsbach mantels used on the
lights.
NO NEWS OF BURGLARS
Tailor Firm Lost $3,000 by Daring
Entry.
A boldly executed robbery occurred
sometime during Sunday night in this
city and as yet the detectives have ob
tained no clue as to the perperators.
The deed was committed In the tailor
shop of Goldbaum & Press,, one of the
three new tailor stores that occupy the
one story building recently erected on
Chapel street near York. Entrance,
it is believed, was made by prying
open a rear window. The burglars
mode quite a rich h?.ul getting off with
silks and woolens worth, according to
the statement of the firm, at least f 3,-
000.
Nothing was known of the robbery
until the occupants of the store found
the goods gone upon their arrival yes
terday morning. Thoy at once not!
fled the police and Detective Dunlap
was on the trail of the case all day. It
Is thought that the burglars must have
had a wagon to aid them in getting

SOCIETY BROKEN UP
Captive Tells of Killing of
Priest and Wealthy
Merchant.
New York, Aug. 13. The secret so
ciety of . the" Hunchakist has been
smashed by the efforts of the New
York police force. It was announced
early this morning by District Attor
ney Jerome and Deputy Commission
er Woods that, thanks to the efforts
of the detective bureau, they had ar
rested the ringleaders of the society
and had obtained confessions from
them. ,
With the arrest of Kassak Jelallan
on Sunday night the end of the socl
etyy became certain. This man con
fessed to Mr. Jerome last night, the
police say, after a gruelling examina
tion which lasted for more than six
hours, that It was he, and no other,
who had directed the murders of
Father Kasper, whose body was cut
to pieces, and the wealthy rug mer
chant, Tavshanjian, killed as he was
entering his office near Union square.
He furthermore stated, It is said.
that he had stood by while Bedros
Hamptzoonlan waited for the coming
of the victim and pointed out the
doomed man.
It Is stated by Detective Petroslno
who has had the actual Investigation
In charge, that Father Martouguesslan
is not directly connected with the so
ciety, though he is still believed to
have known a great deal of Its inner
workings.

he attacked an employe named Wilson,
Wilson wouldn't stand for his friend
insults, however well meant they might
be, and threw him out of the hc,tel.
Then Pine ran around like a mad
man and stated to every one he met
that he was going to knife Wilson
Thinking this was carrying the mat

EXPRESSMAN TOOK
TR0NKDNA5KED
When Police Ask Where He
Delivered it He is
Unable to Declare.
JOHN QUINN IS
CHARGED WITH THEFT
Worcester Woman Com
plains that She is Una
ble to Find Trunk
Loses License.
When an expressman calls and take
away a trunk which he had not been
asked to take by the owner thereof
and is then unable to tell where he has
taken It, what is it? John Qulnn, .ex
pressman and In the business for a
number of years, found out yesterday
that in New Haven it is, theft. In
accordance with this definition Qulnn
was escorted into the lockup and will
be called upon to face the court this
morning on the charge of theft of
said trunk. .
The trunk was the property ot' Mrs.
Emma St. Armour of Worcester, Mass.,
who was visiting with a Mr. -Hitchcock
at 41 Court street. Yesterday she
left word with an expressman to come
and convey her trunk to the Btatlon
and paid him to do so. Before his
time cam Qulnn took the trunk
away and when Mrs. St. Armour
looked for her trunk she found rl had
not come. She then reported her loss
to the police, stating that there were
articles to the value of about $200 in
the trunk.
Detective Sergeant Dennehy went
out and after Investigation came to the
conclusion that the man who had
called and taken the trunk was Qulnn.
He then went over to the expressman's
house at 110 Portsea Btreet and had a
conversation with him. The express
man admitted taking the trunk which
he said a little girl had told him to
call for, but he said he did not re
member where he had taken it as he
hcndled too many trunks in a day to
keep track of where he took them.
The sergeant was unable to get any
satisfaction out of him and went back .
to the station to get a warrant for
his arrest. Departing he turned to
Qulnn and told him that he would see
him down at headquarters et 7:80 to
see the chief, to which Qulnn made
the response that If the chief wanted
to see him he could come and visit
him. . ; v
Qulnn still stuck to the claim that
he could not remember where he had
taken the trunk after he had arrived
at the station last .evening. Chief
Wrinn interrogated him without get
ting the desired information and ac
cordingly Qulnn was locked up on the
charge of theft. The chief also re
voked his license , as an expressman
last evening and declared that he i
would never renew it while he was
ohlef of police. Qulnn Is 60 years of
age and is quite well known among
the expressmen at the Union station.
He has never been arrested before. De
tectives Ward and McAyoy served the
warrant upon Qulnn last evening.
The missing trunk has not yet been
located. ,
