Plumbers' Association and
Outside Firms Take Steps
1 to Clear Ud Work in
Hand.
OUTLOOK BRIGHT
FOR CUSTOMERS
Masters Desire to Install
Sliding Scale But Men
Hold Out for Mini
mum Wage.
! As far as the effect of the strike of
: the city's metal workers upon the cus-
'i tomers' work is concerned, the outlook
1 is much brighter, but -the deadlock be-
tween the masters and men remains
! tight as ever with no prospect of a
compromise. The fight has developed
! Into a battle for principle, the differ
ence between what the men demand
and the masters offer being only a
f matter of 25 cents per day.
As reported in yesterday's Journal-
Courier the opening up of the new
shop at 629 State street by O. M.' Edg
ferly, for ten years bookkeeper with W.
I A, T. Smith, and his partner, O. Volo
ishen, a capable journeyman,' has re
lieved the situation considerably. Here
four tinners are employed and accord
ing to the jobbing-plumbers the firm
appears to be doing a large business.
In addition to this firm there are In
West Haven, the Godfrey Co. and the
Hull Co. who have' acceded to the de
irfands of the man for a $3.50 wage for
eight hours' work and a limiting of Jhe
number of apprentices to one for ev
ery three journeymen. The strikers
claim that there are also two "fair"
Ishons in Pair Haven, that is, those
fthat have agreed to the union schedule.
It was given out last night by the
strikers' committee that 42 of the 107
fme.n who . went out on strike Oct. 1
have secured positions. Some ihave
'gone . to Bridgeport, . Stamford and
i'Springfleld where the men say, higher
.'wages are paid than in New Haven,
jand the balance are located here.

"iramiiies are paid By tne local union,
affiliated ' with the National Building
Trades council, $10 per week, while
jthe single men ,ara paid $7 per. week
! from the treasury. They also say that
j mot more than ten men are at work
'.(for the master plumbers, a statement
ijwhlch the masters' committee would
! pot 'deny.

- sEdserly gave it as his opinion, drawn,
; ha sild, from ten years' work along
:' wide the Journeyrnent that the tinners
f fare worth the $3.50 wage demanded.

SrlifBniilt and reuires greater skill than
' Jthat of the plumbers and steam fitters,
fwhose minimum wage is $3.50 for an
I un tne otner naia A. H. Buckingham,
; president of the Master Plumbers' ass-o-
EbUion, who employs twelve tinners,
' jtho largest number of any single mas
ler in the city, and who now has but
'pne man at work, when asked wheth
jpr the offer of ?3.25 is now withdrawn,
i peclared that it Is the desire of his
; association to install the sliding scale,
thus paying each man according to his
j ability, rather than to establish a min-
mum wage of any specified amount.
feome of his men, he states, were Daid
(3, $3.25, $3.50, $3.75 and $4, and that
i 'minimum of $3.25 is all the masters
'eel the:' can afford.
Several days ago the masters se.cur
id some thirty men through a New
i'ork ager.cy, which claimed that the
f fmen were competent tinners. This
fnroved to be a fallacv. howevpr. no ni-
fcordlng to rumors the men were Ital
ians of the cohiman or garden variety,
liot one in ten being able to speak a
Svord of English, much less being mas-
iers of the intricacies of metal work
ng. It is said that the men were re
alned but two days.
After such an outcome the masters
legan advertising in the papers in New
England, also in Boston and New York
;ity. In the New York World Mr.
Buckingham made an offer of $3.25 up
'or capable journeymen. Mr. Bueklng
lam himself was in New York yester
iay looking: tnto the matter further and
eported on his return that results may
)e expected at once. ,
As to the attitude of the two con
:estants. both maintain the position
Irst taken, and there is no reason to
jelleve that there will be much change
n the status tor some time to come.

with a big box of tobacco that It Is
thought they must have stolen from
one of the express wagons of Sloan's

according to their heart's desire. Th
box was a huge one that fully required
three persons to conveniently hand'e
and. was full of tobacco in various
forms, some in paper parkages, some in
boxes of cigars and in other conditions.
The detective noticed the three men
making with the box intai an alleyway
that leads off from Fair street . and he
investigated. As a result thereof h6
landed the three with a fourth man
who seemed In Borne way connected
with them In the lockup. The threa
with the box are charged with, theft
while the fourth is held for the pres
ent at least on a charge of drunken
ness. '. 1
The box which was stolen was ad

Largely Increased the
Number of Stock
holders. The rights for subscription to the
new issue of New Haven Gas Co. de
benture bonds are variously quoted at

George H. Clowes' Daugh
terSuccessfulin $10,000 ,
Damage Case.
Waterbury, Oct. 11. George H.
Clowes has received the following tel
egram from Charles N. Morgan &
Sons, his New York attorneys, relating
to the suit of his daughter,. Miss Mary
Clowes, against the Askln-Singer com
pany for using her picture to advertise
their production of "The Time, the
Place and the Girl:"
"W,e are now in a position to take
judgment against the Askln-Slnger
j company in favor of your daughter,
Mary Clowes, for its unauthorized use
', of her picture."
Mr. Clowes stated to-day that this
telegram, which he received this
morning, was sent by the New York
'.attorneys in answer to an inquiry from
him regarding the exact status of his
daughter's suit nt present. The Askln-
i Singer company failed to appear at
the hearing held several weeks ago,
and Mr. Clowes says that, in his opin
ion, they practically gave the case to
his daughter by this failure to make
any defense.
He also stated that the picture his
daughter claims' the poster was copied
from is not any of the recent photo
graphs printed in the newspapers, but
a photograph, made two years ago,
which was extensively reproduced as
a pastel, and which bears a still more
striking resemblance to the picture
used on the theatrical poster.

Like a scene near the Lakes of Kll
larney In the middle ages is the picture
of' the" big Hibernian fair which will
continue for the next nlno days. Cas
tles, fortresses shrines and everything
In which the people of Erin wer in
terested in years ago was represented.
And moving from attraction to attrac
tion were the hundreds of people who
attended the fair on' the first night.
Mayor John P. Studlcy, with a few
words in which he touched upon the
great work which the Irish people have
done In this country Opened the fa'r.
His address was received with great
enthusiasm by the menfbers of the
crowd which already spread out over
the dance floor rendering almost im
possible for the people to move about
from booth to booth. Just as the may
or had finished speaking Governor Rol
lln S. Woodruff, just back from visit
ing the battleship Connecticut at New
London, entered the hall escorted by J.
F. Devlne, chairman of the general
committee in charge of the fair. The
crowd parted as the state's chief of
ficial came down the floor and as he
was led to the platform he was greet
ed with cheers.
Governor Woodruff spoke briefly of
his visit to the battleship named after
the Nutmeg State and spoke particu
larly of his conversation with "Fight
ing Bob" Evans, commander of the
battleship, In which Admiral Evans
said, among, the oest officers under htm
was Lieutenant Cronan of New Ha
ven. ,
After the governor had ceased speak
ing the orchestra played several selec
tions and the attendants at the fair
visited the varied attractions. !At every
fair there should be a horee race, and
the Hibernian fair is no exception.
Each time that a heat is pulled oft
there are over twenty races .entered
and the speed with which they fly past
the post is remarkable.
There are refreshment booths, candy
booths, soda fountains, tents for for
tune tellers, Irieh huts and everything
else to make the fair a success. And
best of all is a piece of the real origi
nal Blarney stone, borrowed for the
occasion from Captain Courtney ' of
Bridgeport, which occupies a place of
hone In a representation of the Blar
ney castle at the front of the hall.
The local branches of the Hibernians
are giving the fair to raise $3,000 with
which to entertain the membens of the
Hibernians from all over the state
next August. It is expected that v in
August there will be over 4,000 Hiber
nians in line in the big parade.

Parks Department Desires
One for Its Own
Service.
A regular meeting of the board of
park commissioners was held last
evening in city hall. The matter of
the sale of West Rock park land for
blasting purposes was not taken up by
the board as the matter is held up in
the aldermanic chamber, and it was
stated last evening that nothing would
be done by the park board without
the consent of the aldermen. Mr.
Blake, head of the board, when ask
ed last evening whether it was ar
ranged with Mr. Blakeslee that he
was to have the land If permission to
sell was obtained, stated that the
board was under no obligation to the
Blakeslees in the matter and that bids
from any other person would be- ac
cepted. He said that the Blakeslees
appeared to be the only firm to do it,
but any others that appeared would
have their bids attended to.
A letter was received from William
S. Wells stating that there was a sum
of $45 remaining as a balance from
the sum in the hands of his commit
tee for tho erection of tablets on the
monument on East Rock and the
money Was tendered to the commis
sion for tjle care of the tablets.
The estimates were gone over and
approved and will be submitted to the

mission is planning to make a request
to the public parks department that
an extra civil engineer should be ob
tained'by that department for the ser
vice of the parks. The park super

present Is inadequate and that many
necessary pieces of work in the parks
must be let go because there are more
Important requirements in the de

RESCUEDFROI FIRE
Sick Man Carried From His
Burning Home in
Waliingford.
(Special to the Journal and Courier.)
Waliingford, Oct 11. Fire broke
out this afternoon at 1:30 o'clock in
the residence of William F. Pratt on
North Colony street. The blaze was
in the attic and under good headway
when discovered.
As the water mains do not extend
that far up Colony street those who
first reached the scene formed a buck'
et brigade, but could not reach the
seat of the Are, and consequently it
spread rapidly.
Mr. Pratt, who is very ill with heart
trouble was carried to a place of safe
ty just before the flames broke
through into his room.
A heavy north wind was blowing
and carried tne sparks in the direction
of the residence of John Bridgett,
across the street. The roof of an ice
shed adjoining his barn caught Are
and would have soon destroyed that
structure also if it had not been for
the quick work of the Are laddies of
Simpson Hook and Ladder company.
Later the roof of the house caught
on nre but was quickly extinguished.
