PRISONER AGAIN ESCAPESOUR JAIL JLeroy Taylor Missed His Breakfast to Take ; Chances on Get ting Away. OUT OF WINDOW AND DOWN CHAPEL ROOF Man Arrested Five Months Ago forNStealing From i Cars in Cedar Hill Yards. Creeping down over the chapel roof mt the county jail yesterday morning' ' Lockwood, one qf the best known men While the remainder of tne prisoners , in Southwestern Connecticut died sud iwere at their breakfasts, Leroy Taylor, aeV during last' n!3ht. He was ill . , . . .f but a few minutes and yesterday was entenced five months ago to twenty- , , , , . . ! In his usual good health and had been one months' imprisonment for theft arlving ' from railroad cars at the TCedar Hill yards made a successful escape from jtho Whalley avenue institution "and so ;far is still at large. Taylor with the i remalnder of the prisoners was called ' iiforth just before breakfast time yt's-1 terday morning to wash up and with ,the rest of his fellow Inmates he -went 'into the toilet .room. It appears that :he failed to come out with the rest 'and the keeper who had charge of a, large number of prisoners did not not ice the defecttqn. He then is supposed Ito have returned to his cell and ob tained some of, his bed clothes. :Mak Ink his way through a corridor up stairs he came to a window wh'ch was Ibarred with a wooden shutter. This lie succeeded in forcing out and by us ing his bedclothes for a rope he lower ied hlm'self unseen upon the roof of the chapel. Thence he slipped down to the edge and dropped to th ground, making jliia way carefully to the street or some other avenue of exit along which he disappeared. The "escape was soon perceived and the local detective force notified 1 of the absence of Taylor. The man cre ated quite a furore at the timaof his larrest. v He was engaged it is stated as s. strike hreaker fls a hrakemin in the Cedar: Hill railroad yards. He claimed that someone had stolen some money which he had in a wallet and he set mbout in medieval fashion to execute Ills own mode 'of justice. On the high : way In North Haven he met two men vhoiq he thought -were the ones who had. hfSMnoney. ' He promptly held them up at the point of a gun in. true wild west fashion and went through them. Failing to find proof of guilt up on them he give them back their goos and let them pursue their Journey un molested. - '."'' Upon their arrival home the men re ported to the authorities and Officer Brockett of North Haven came to this city with mind intent upon arresting Taylor. Taylor did not sea it that way, however, and covering the officer with :& gun rode away upon a mustang 'which he had in his possession and es caped unscathed for that time. About this time it became noised about in North Haven that this man jTaylor had been selling goods in North 'Haven in large quantities and Defec tive Daley of this city went up there 'to look into the report. From Informa tion which he obtained he came to the conclusion that Taylor had stolen the Jg-ood's from the railroad company's icars and he was arrested while at werk dn the yards at Cedar Mill. He pleaded guilty when put to trial and has been In jail a"bout five months having stiu to serve some sixtefcn months. - TOLLOWINO FRESH TRAILS president Persistent In Determination , to Shoot Bears. ; Stamboul, La., Oct. 13.

FEARED STXIe POLICE Visit Last Week Resulted in Closeness of Doors Yesterday. ' It was a dry Sunday in New Haven yesterday if there ever was one. The U was most emphatically on,- not only in4' the center, but throughout the city, ; and especially at the . shore places , where laxity might seem less danger- ous at this time of the year. The visit of the state police to this city last week with the wholesale arrests which they made and the dire reports of , their future activities cast fear that was wholesome from the standpoint of many persons at least into the hearts and abodes of many dispensers of that beverage which is stronger than water and which results in many a man losing control of himself temporarily under Its Influence. The chances to do so yesterday were scarce and If any places were doing business at all it was kept very dark, Indeed. ';' Except In one case, Michael Mona han of 423 State street, peeped out from under the lid and the big stick landed with a b6autlful crack upon his head. He was escorted to the police station by Patrolmen Spencer ' and Ledwlth and graced the central slate with his name for the first adornment of the day. Monahan was charged with vio lation of the liquor law. It was the first Sunday In many, many' months at least that the slate- I at central station has not been able to display something in the line of a ! drunk. But at supper time last even ! Ing there was not one in central who 1 had been arrested on that charge and the outside stations reported that all was quiet and tranquil with them. Ap parently, was the word, they are all afraid on account of the visit of the state police last week. ;" PROMISE OF A "TEDDY BEAR." Unadilla, Ga., Oct. 16.

V RESIGNATION OF : WRIMAT HAND Well Founded Report That He Will Hand It in To-morrow Even ing. COWLES TALKED OF AS STUDLEY MAN But Mayor Said He Would Not Appoint if Martin Was Elected to Office. The probabilities are that there will be important changes in the depart ment of police during the coming week. The change will affect the very head of the department. The next meeting of the board of police commissioners will be held to-morrow evening, and it is stated on -very cer tain authority that at this meeting the resignation of Chief Wrinri will be presented. With this preliminary as almost a certainty, speculation has bten very busy with the successor to Wrinn in the chiefs office. It is marked down in the books of those who know that if the appointment is made by Mayor Studley before he goes out of office it will fall to Henry Cowles, the presini captain of the de tective bureau. In connection with this slate it is understood that the captain expects to have the police commissioners allow him to select his successor, and that the captain desires to appoint in his stead In the detective office James Ward. This is the slate which Is roost talk ed of at present, but there may be catches in its progress that will upset a part of It. Prominent In the men tion for either the chiefshlp itself , or the captaincy Is Detective Henry Don nelly. While it is practically assured, unless something very unforeseen changes the present plans, that Stud ley will appoint, Cowles If he makes the appointment, the mayor stated, axf a meeting held some time before elec tion that; -tn the" everit, of Mr." Martin being chosen mayor of the city, he Would not make any permanent ap pointment of a police chief. Unless he changes his mind this will make the appointment of a chief, If Wrlnn's resignation is accepted at the present time, a temporary one, and when Mr. Martin comes into office It will be changed again. : It is said that . the commissioners will not be likely to take any action on the resignation if it comes before them to-morrow evening, as is pre dicted. The matter will probably be 'aid upon the table. In tne mean time the mayor may take action upon the matter and make either a regular or temporary appointment to the of fice. If the appointment Is of the temporary order there will probably be a change yn January, when Martin comes In, as It is said that Donnelly is the more likely man as his appointee. In case Cowles gets the regular ap pointment now the captaincy may fall to either Ward or Donnelly, for while It is understood that the captain fa vors the former, the latter Is a strong candidate and may land the headship of tho bureau. . INSULAR J)ME RULE Secretary Taft to Address Assembly at Manila This Week. Manila, Oct. 13. Great Interest Is shown in the opening of the first Philippine assembly, which occurs during the coming week, and the ar rival of Secretary Taft which comes at an opportune time In the inauguration of Philippine home rule. Already the contending political factions ira show ing great activity, and at the caucus held on Thursday the first brush oc curred over a motion to have the as sembly proceedings opened with pray er, which was defeated by one vote, on the broad ground that affairs of church and state should be kept dis tlnct. The caucus was attended by forty-eight delegates, but only thirty- three voted on the motion for prayer. The motion of the assembly on questions relating to the political fu ture of the Philippine 13 expected to be determined largely by the opinion expressed by Secretary Taft in hl3 address opening the session. This is the view held by Filipinos as well as Americans. The latter are generally in favor of a specific pronouncement on Philippine policy. . 1 LARGE MISSIONARY OFFKRIXG'. ( New York, Oct. 13.

ENGINE OF TRAIN MADE FALSE START Dining Car Wheel Brake Holds Up Party in Sump tuous Special Train. Shortly after 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon there pulled out of the "Union station In this city a train: that might have vied in flory with the best of the" limited expresses on the Poad containing as It did five1 handsome parlor cars and two diners. This was the special that bore from this state Governor Woodruff and tho big offi cial delegation which accompanied him on the state visit to the James town exposition. The. party elected from all the state to represent the en tire commonwealth and its Interests gathered, man? of the gentlemen of the group with their wives accom panying them, at the station as the clock made progress toward 5 o'clock and unostentatiously the gathering btfarded the special which stood on the second track. There was a small crowd at the station composed mainly of waiting passengers and there was no demonstration. It was a little after the hour nam ed that the train made Its first effort to pull out, but either the engine was overcome by the large gathering of celebrities which was entrusted to its care or, something more potent hap pened, for after a few vigorous and deep drawn breaths the engine was forced to- lie down, as the trainmen say. The trouble was found to be that one of tho brakes on the dining car Plymouth was too firmly attached to the wheel to let go, and after a lit tle tinkering the train was started again. This time the train went along smoothly and was soon lost around the bend on the New York trail. The Second company, Foot Guards, made its start from this city about o'clock yesterday afternoon.

THIRD SERjVION ON CHRISTIAN SCIENCE Rev. Mr. Brown Speaks to Large Audience at the First Methodist Church. The Rev. Francis T. Brown spoke last evening to an audience that filled the auditorium of the First Methodist Episcopal church on "Why no Real Christian Should Be a Member of the Cult Called Christian Science." This was the third in a series of Sunday evening sermon-lectures on the teach ings of Mrs. Eddy. 'In his introduc tion Mr. Brown called attention to the form of the evening's topic and showed that many true Christians are among Mrs, Eddy's followers in spite of the errors ho is discussing. ' Mr. Brown's sermon In full follows: At the beglnhing of this series of sermon-lecturec, it was affirmed that neither the truth nor the error of so- called Christian Science Is .new; that the truth is a part of our universal her itage in the Gospel qf Jesus Christ and tne error, a raise principle of Hindu philosophy partially disguised in Chris tian phrases. To the truth we promised that we should seek to do full Justice before the close of the series.. Of the error In its bearing upon the Christian ruth we ar.-o engaged to speak at a later time. But first of all, we felt It necessary to. consider in its scientific and metaphysical bearings this Hindu error namely that the physical uni verse Is merely an illusion of the self deceived human mind. In the two pre ceding discussions, we have seen that Mrs. Eddy's, espousal of this error, to gether with her general incoherence of thought, has placed her book "Science and Health"? forever outside the pale of genuine Bclence and philosophy. It now remains for Us before passing to the Consideration and enforcement of the values which may be suggested by Mrs. Eddy's book, to indicate as pro posed the influence of this (same error upon her religious teachings. In phras ing ,the topic under which we shall trace this Influence,' it must be noted that while there is a general corre spondence of form between this and the 1 (Contlriued on Second Page.)

Y. Operators. The local branch of the Commercial Telegraphers' union met yesterday and decided .not to go back to work to-day, This action was taken after the men had learned that the- New York union had voted not to return to work. The men here are disgusted with President Small for his statement that the strike would be ended if the men should vote to that effect. They say that the operators were on the eve of victory when Mr. Small made the an nouncement. There Is some question as to whether the men employed in the local branch of the Western Ulon could get their positions back as it was stated there yesterday that when the management wanted the men , it would send for them. Associated Press dispatches to the Journal and courier last night eay that local branches of the union in Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Bal timoro, Kansas City, Omaha, Salt Lake City, Cleveland and other cities yester day voted to continue the strike.
