NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1907.
Vacation is Over School Begins To-morrow But don't forget that we are ready to supply those needfuls that were perhaps overlooked at a big saving. g Remember, we carry a line of shoes thatii sel- iiOGS ected strictly for their merits of high quality. Not only in appearance and style but in all round wear nd durability they excel any offered in this city-at the price. All those little touches of perfection in workmanship, the .careful exe cution of details that express the utmost care in their making, are represented in every garment sold in our boys' department. In no other line are we more particular in making our purchases. So in taking advantage of our extremely low prices you are assured of the highest quality. New fall models in girls' dresses are daily.being added to our handsome stock. Also new ideas in coats and reefers. Never have we had more occasion to exercise the greatest care in our buying. With the cost of materials advanc ing tremendously, many makers resort to sacrificing the quality, but rather than accept such garments we sacrifice our profits.

He expects to go to Oyster Bay to-morrow morning on some business with President Roosevelt, the nature of which is not disclosed except that It has nothing to do with the strike of the telegraphers.

An active canvas Is being made by all of these for the office. Among these are H. P. Coney, of Topeka, Kas.; Gen. John T. Wilder, of Knoxville, Tenn., and Charles G. Burton, of Nevada, Mo.

President Sam uel Gompers of the American Federa tion of Labor is In New York to-night but repeated efforts have failed to locate him. He was met by several officers of the Telegrapher's union and held a conference with them, after which he evaded the newspaper re porters and has not yet been found. Deputy President Thomas of the Telegrapher's union, who was one of those who met Mr. Gompers, stated that the visit had nothing to do with the settlement of the telegrapher's strike, but was solely for the purpose of discussing what aid the American Federation of Labor should give the striking telegraphers.

A negro named Stlmson was arrested last night by Officer John Smith of the West Haven police, and will appear in the borough court this morning in the disclosing of a supposed attempt at as sault. Stimson, a visitor of only two days' arrival In the borough, is said to have stepped off a trolley car near the Lion Brewery in Allingtown, when two young women seventeen years of age got off. They were frightened, and it is not clear whether they were attacked by tho negro or not, according to the story announced last night. Stimson was later arrested on suspicion. He Is thirty years of age. quarters to-night Chairman Theodore Macdonald will announce the dates for the caucuses and the convention to be held later. All that will then remain to do will be to select meeting places In the wards. The convention will be held In the hall of the Young Men's Repub llcan club In about two weeks. After to-morrow night's meeting the activity will "be all toward securing delegates favorable to candidates having the preference of the leaders. It Is there fore expected, in view of the situation over the mayoralty that some of the ward caucuses will be spirited ones. Tho democratic committee will also hold a meeting to-night at which the imperfections In the ticket will be cor rected. On Wednesday nlht another session will be held at which the as sessments will be collected or those who do not pay up dropped from the ticket. All vacancies will then be filled.

The entire plant of Nichols and Stone, chair man ufactufers, the largest industry in Gar diner, was destroyed by fire to-night, entailing a loss of more than $100,000, and throwing 160 hands out of employ ment. The fire started in the drying room in which was stored a large amount of hard wood lumber. The main factory was a four story wooden structure, 170 feet long. Near it was a paint shop, a woden four story building, 160 feet in length. In oddl lion to mese Buildings several sheds full of seasoned lumber were burned. Mr. Stone, of the firm, said he consld ered it doubtful if the plant is rebuilt. as the insurance amounted to only $35, 000. He was inclined to think that the fire was incendiary.. Hartford, Sept. 9. The following opinion of the attorney-general as to the time when the new state law which provides that fifty-eight hours shall constitute a week's work for women and children In any manufac turing, mechanical or mercantile es tablishment takes effect, glveh in re sponse to Inquiry on that subject made by Labor Commjssloner W. H. Scoville, is made public: Attorney-General's Office, Hartford, Sept. 6, 1907. William II. Scoville, Esq., Labor Commissioner. Dear Sir: You ask if the provisions of Chapter 251 of the Public Acts of 1907, apply to the months of September, October, No- ember and December of the present ear. The act provides that no women and no minor under sixteen years of age shall bo employed In laboring in any manufacturing, mechanical or mer cantile establishment more than ten hours any day, (with specified exemp- tionc), and fifty-eight hours in a week; Provided, That In any case any em ployer shall, on or before the first day of January of any year, give notice to his employes, by notices posted as here inbefore provided, that the hours of labor of minors under sixteen years of age and of women employed by him, as aforesaid, shall not exceed fifty-five hours in any week during the months of June, July and August of the en suing year, then said employer may employ such minors and women not to exceed sixty hours in any week during said year, except during said months ot June, July and August," 1st page. There may appear to be an ammgu- lty, but I think the, Intent is apparent that if the required notice Is given and the hours of labor during the summer months do not exceed fifty-five hours in any week, they may be sixty hours during the other months, and, as this act took effect an September 1, 1907, do not think It reasonable to infer that It was intended that tho opera tion of the law should be suspended until January 1, 1908. I think tl ap plies to the remaining months of this year. I am respectfully yours, M. H. HODCOMB, Attorney General. fractured skull, and he was started for the hospital, but died before reaching there and was then taken to his home. Bastion was taken to the hospital. The wrecked car was left at the edge of the track and after order had been restored Walter Christy attempted to make a new track record for a mile in a new 140-horse power car. Christy was cautioned to beware of the wreck, ed car at the turn and had circled the track once when he signalled for the timers to take his time. Christy crossed the tape at a speed that could hardly be estimated. The noise of tys machine drowned the voice of the starter. He ran into the back stretch and approached the wrecked car at a speed that carried him too far out. The crowd in the grand stand rose to its feet, there were cries and shrieks, and with the ex- ploscion of a powder mill Christy's car hit the obstruction on the track fairly head on. The big racer bounded fully fifty feet In the air and Christy was hurled like a catapult a long dis tance ahead of it. As he was thrown from the machine the steering wheel caught hlra across the stomach and it is from this It is feared he has sus tained internal injuries. As Christy struck the ground the machine, which in its flight had hurdled the wreck, came down on him and he lay buried among a mass of wreckage. t Policeman Farnol was guarding the wrecked car and was hurt by the ton neau that flew in his direction when tho collision occurred. Barney Oldfield, who tried for a new track record, also did a mile in 1:10. He was handicapped by a coll which shook loose and struck him in the leg, painfully but not seriously in juring him. He was able to proceed to his hotel. Ten minutes before Christy started on his fateful run he receivod word of the critical illness of Mrs. Christy at River Edge, Bergen county, N. J. Friends tonight are making every ef fort to keep the news of the accident from her. The races are scheduled to continue to-morrow, but Supt. of Police John Glenn of Allegheny has served notice upon tho management that the races will not be permitted unless phy sicians and ambulances are at the track to care for anyone who might be Injured. MAN DYING FROM HAZING1! INHALED FURNACE FIRE Pennsylvania Mill Worker Swung Ovei Flame of Blast Furnace. Washington, Pa., Sept. 9. Henry Perry, a mill worker of Wheeling, W. Va., is dying to-night from a brutal hazing administered to-day by fifty employes of the Tyler Tube & Pipe Co. Burned and beaten, there is little hope for his recovery. The Tyler company steel workers have a custom of initiating new em ployes. Perry came to work yesterday from the Wheeling mills. At the mid night lunch hour he was seized by a couple of powerful mill men, that he might be put through hie "degree." Perry fought valiantly and with two iron pipes succeeded In warding off several of his tormentors until overpowered by . superior numbers. His clothing was fastened to a hook of a big iron crane and he was bound fast with cords. Then he was swung above the flame of a big blast furnace which is usually approached by the workmen only when covered by a shield. Finally the cords were burn ed through and Perry's unconscious form dropped to the floor right In front of the furnace, where his flesh was shrivelled and his clothing char red. His tormentors, alarmed at their work, called Dr. J. R. Maxwell,, who worked with the man for seven hours before restoring consciousness. Phy sicians believe Perry inhaled the flames and entertain little hope for his recovery. Warrants were issued to day for the arrest of the ringleaders of the affair, but they escaped arrest by getting out of town. Women's Patent Calf and Patent G v BUTTON AND LACE.

A Pole woman, dressed in black, sat In the Union station last night, brood ing over the bigness of the. United States. Speaking little of English she got a ticket at New York, Sunday for East Hampton. The ticket took her to East Hampton, Conn., 3 miles from here.

She had to spend last night in Springfield and will reach her destin ation this morning. The committee on railroads and bridges held a meeting last night In the aldermnntc chambers to hear the wishes of tho public on tho petition of the Consolidated Hallway , company to jbe allowed to run a spur track from I the tracks of the Manufacturers' Rail way in River street across one-half the street and into the entry way of I the old Ferry street railway power house and which is now Station 2 of tho road and Is used as a repair ana paint shop. Manager Frank Harlan of the trol ley road was the only one Interested It seemed, for he was tho only ono present except the aldermen. Ho Ex plained, with maps, the layout asked and whlc1- is simply to make a curve from the center of Rivet street across the sidewalk line and on to the road's property. There Is already a trolley track coming In from Ferry street at about the same spot the new one would be located, so the addition would not mako any change. The extension, he stated, was simply a matter of convenience in getting cars in and out, as under the present conditions great difficulty was experienced. After hearing Mr. Harlan, as no ono appeared against the petition, the committee decided to report favorably on tho improvement to the next board meeting.
