The Ferris Wheel which has been in operation at Savin Rock for seveVal summers was the subject of a hearing in the Superior Court at Hartford yes terday before Judge Case. The hear lng was on the request of Charles E. Isleib of Hartford for the appointment of a receiver on the property. Isleib claims that he entered into a partner ship with Aart Blanken of this city In 1904, and that a year later -this part nersnip was aissoivea. There was a dlsagreemenf over the amount of the distribution each claiming that the other was in debt to him. The Judge thought that the appoint ment or a receiver was unnecessary since this was all the property there was and he suggested that they agree upon a less expensive course. The at torneys agreed that if Blanken would agree not to sell the wheel or remove It from Savin Rock the case would be continued in court in the form of an accounting.

M'GANN IS ODT OF THEJAMPAIGN Not Interested in Either of the Democrats Out for Mayor This Cam paign. YORK SAYS HE IS NOT A CANDIDATE On His Return to-City He Quiets Rumor in Re gard to His Am bitions. The political situation from the dem ocratic standpoint did not accomplish much In the clearing up act the night before the last chance to file petitions for office. "Very few of the petitions were in last night and while these were not open for Inspection it IB un derstood that they were not for the most important places on the ticket. It is the general custom to hold back the papers until the last day and there promises to be some busy minutes at haedquarters before nine o'clock this evening. The situation In the mayoralty fight appears the same. Samuel A, York returned to the city last night after a vacation and though it was on the next to the last day for filing the, pe titions for office no significance is at tached to his act. Ae soon as he ar rived in the city Mr. York stated pos itively that he was not a candidate for mayor. That Mr. York Is not In the race Is strengthened by the statement last night by former senator James &. Mo- Gann that he was out of politics for this campaign. When asked if he was out of politics for good or merely for this campaign, Mr. MoGann said that he was out of politics for thl3 cam paign, as he was not interested in either of the candidates for mayor. The candidates referred to were Mr. Martin and Mr. Avis, for had Mr. York been In the race Mr. McGann would have taken a strong interest In his favor it is generally believed. In future campaigns Mr. McGann will still bt interested in politics. For the other offices there to noth ing more definite than what has been published so far, the events of to-day being awaited for final knowledge as to who will be who when the seventh comes aTound. It is understood that the attempts In the fourth ward to bring about an agreement on the candidate who would be presented to the voters for alder man has failed to make good and it was stated last night that three men will In all probabilities file their peti tions to-day. These are the present representative of the ward, Alderman Burke, Patrick Cunningham and Ben jamin Jones. There promises to be a lively aldlermanlc fight in this ward on the night of the primaries.

DISCOVERY MADE BEFORE DISASTER Condition Not Considered Serious Enough toCause Collapse of the Bridge. Quebec, Sept. 4. The coroner's jury to-day continued its inquiry as to the cause of the death of the victims of the Quebec bridge disaster, Mr. Hoare, chief engineer of the Quebec Bridge Co., occupied the witness 'box for over two hours, being followed by Mr. Mc- Clue, assistant engineer, who returned from Phoenixvllle a few days ago. Mr. Hoare stated that he had helped in the preparation of the plans and spec ifications of the structure. He had, moreover, prepared specifications for a cantilever bridige which were approved by the government before tenders were called. Mr. Hoare stated that on Tuesday, August 27, Mr. McClure reported to him verbally and to Sir. Cooper In writing or by telegram that on the ninth lower chord at the west; truss a slight curva ture inwards was noticfed. The mo ment any likely fault was discovered, Immediate steps were taken to repair It. They did not consider it flerious, but wltnessi visited the bridge early next morning and went over the whole structure with McClure and Klnlooh, government inspectors, as well aa the Phoenix company's engineer. After the visit they discussed matters together. The engineers on the bridge had also checked all alignment posts and levels and tested the deflection, finding" everything in perfect condition. After ascertaining these facts, he sent McClure to New York to describe the condition of that chord as the telegraph and telephone service were too slow to discuss the matter in that way. Mr. McClure left on the morning of the 28th and interviewed Mr. Cooper the next morning and reaohed Phoenix vllle the noxt afternoon. -, . . In reply to the coroner, witness said he never considered the condition of that ohord serious enough to cause ac cident to the bridge, though of suffici ent importance to send McClure to New York. At present he could not speak definitely as to the cause of the acci dent. It would take some time to in vestigate and arlve at a positive decis ion. ' The pieces in number nine chord had been in place fpr over & year. They had noticed deflections in other pieces pf steel, but not so pronounced as this but never considered them of any mo ment as they could always 'be repair ed.

It is possible that George McCarthy may appear in favor of his bill for the payment of the money for taking the military enrollment, but as the order passed by the board of alder men at the last meeting has not yet been signed by the mayor, there Is not likely to be any definite aotion to day if he does so. The board has the bills of both McCarthy and Scally on the table and is waiting apparently for a clearing up of the situation be fore acting on their payment.

G0EBELTO RETURN All Round 1910 Athlete Will Play Guard on the Eleven. , FOSTER HERE SOON Football Pr4tice Will Com menc September 17th. There la no truth in the tatement published yesteiay that Willlatn A. Goebei, the craiSk all round athlete of the class of 1919, was not to return to Yale this fall. Ooebel, whom the coach es say is the strongest man in Yale, since Glass, played cuard on the fresh man foottiaU eleven last year and is certain to occupy the same , position this fall on the 'varsity. , Besides being a first class football player Goebei was considered the best interoolleglate wrestler and practice was making him prominent at the shot "put ana hammer throw. J. T. Foster, manager of the football team, arrives In New Haven Septem ber 16 and practise will commence September 17. A few weeks ago a story was published in a New Haven paper to the effect' that practise would not be Ifin until the week college opened, but there was no truth in it. The only dif ference from former years is that from now on the football men will pay their own expenses when Vhey come back early, arid not have the football associ ation stand for them. Men in the city who keep closely in touch with Yale athletics do not believe the rumor that "Chuck" Ide, captain of the 1007 crew, who was re-elected at the .close of the season, Is not coming back. At commencement time when lie accepted re-election he made known some, slight changes in pians for the crew in the fall and epoke most enthus iastically for the crew of the comWg year. The clouds which some would have gather in upon Yale's athletic hopes could' be. blown away by the merest spring zephyr. - Dill PIPES HOBBY CAUSE MAN'S ARREST He is Charged With the Theft of $29 Worth of Them. Meerschaum pipes and cigar hold ers appeared to have proved an irre sistible temptation to Frank Morello, an Italian, belonging in the city of Paterson, but who has been spending some time here of late. lie was ar rested yesterday by Detective Donnel ly on the charge of theft of such ar ticles to the value of $29.75 from the tobacoo and cigar store of Frank Pe trello in the Boardman building on Chapel street. About a week ago the detective re ceived work that an ItaUan was offer ing such ware for sale on the street, Tuesday he received the complaint from Petrello and connected the two incidents leading up to the arrest. It seems that Morello often Worked around the store in the capacity of a bootblack and it, is supposed that he thus obtained the articles. When first examined he declared absolute inno cence of the thefts and said he had never seen the articles, but on a sec ond lestlonlng when part of the stol en goods had been recovered he cjlalm d that some one had given them U him and he did not know who It was. It is expected that the remainder of the goods will' be recsyerod eiiwily, COL. TROWBRIDGE NOT TO ACCEPT Close .Personal Friend De clares This May be Safe ty Said as to May oralty. NAME CONSIDERED BY REPUBLICANS Says Himself That it is Not at All Likely That He Could Accept the Honor. The statement that Col. Rutherf ord Trowbridge has been fcutetty consid ered by the republican leaders as the candidate of the party for mayor Is well founded and it is understood that all factions would unite solidly for htm if he would accept the nomination. - From a close personal friend qf Col. Trowbridge It was learned last' night that some three or four weeks ago one of the heads of the party whose word is more or less law in the counolls of the republicans, had proposed the name of Col. Trowbridge for the standard bearer. The matter of course was kept seoret. Col Trowbridge, it Is said, was seen and the matter placed before him and there it rested until yesterday whan the report was published that he might be the candidate. At no time had he by word or aotion sought the honor and although asked if he would accept has made no definite reply. However, said Col, Trowbridge's friend, although he Is deeply sensitive to the honor con- . forred upon him it is hardly likely that he will enter the field. In faot, it may be safely aid that he will not He is a man of large financial Interests whioh take up a great deal of his time an f furthermore his arrangements are about complete for spending the winter in the south with his family. Were it a matter of duty Col. Trowbridge would not hesitate lo accept the responsibility as he Is a public sph-lted man, sound in principle, fearless and has a larara tln r-n in the hearts of the people 'through his snostentatloua philanthropy. But he feels and knows there are other men In the party who could give more tltho to the offloe if elected and who would also bring oredlt upon the party, them selves and the city. Col. Trowbridge was himself seen last night, but did not wish to be, in terviewed. . He admitted, however, that be had been mentioned for the mayor alty, but at present was no fully pre pared to say just what he would do, although It did not seem at all likely that he could' aocept the honor even if formally tendered to Mm.' It was hardly neoeseary for him to say that he waj deeply grateful to his friends ' and just as deeply appreciated the honpr. He will leave tcday with his family for Stookbrldge, Maes.
