This fore noon there were two interesting feat ures of the program, the report of Miss Josephine A. Sexton, the corre sponding secretary, and the address of Mrs. Caroline B. Buell, the presi dent of the union. In Miss Sexton's report a complete review of the work throughout the state during the past year is given, and it showed that the work of the White RIbboners has re sulted in much good throughout fjie aiirerem counties. Sixteen unions report an advance in temperance sentiment and twenty three live in no-license towns. At the outset of her address Mrs. Buell reviewed the national conven tion held in Hartford, arid referred to the county conventions held since. She then took up the work carried on in the. schools and among-the immi grants. .In spenjting pf the union's efforts at the Soldiers' home at Noro-j ton Mrs. Buell said that so far noth ing had been accomplished there, and added: . v . , , . "A continual dripping will , wear away . a stone, so we must keep ,on making efforts till at last we shall succeed in getting some temperance work there among the old soldiers." Mrs. Buell made a plea for woman suffrage, and paid that many women in the state want it. ' She hoped it would eventually come. Mrs. Buell spoke highly of the temperance work carried on during the last s.tate cam paign, and Bald that . prohibition Is more in tho thoughts of the people than ever before. Up One Flight.

Lewis, the new rector of St. John's Episcopal church. The first that was known of the rob bery was when Mr. Clinton was arous ed from sleep about three in the morn ing by a noise that seemed to be down stairs. He went to the window and wiled out loudly and Just at the time he had his head out of the window the entire building was shaken by the ex plosion which broke open the first safe in the office. A man by the name oi Micnaei buiw was the first to respond to; the calls of Mr. Clinton. He came up and was be ing told that there were burglars in the office when one of tho burglars or dered Clinton to put his head in and stop his noise or he would Wow ms head off. The men continued to. work and Mr. Clinton then went to get his revolver. Whllo he was loading this the .second safe was blown up and again the build ing shook. Mrs. Clinton and her daugh ter Mildred were thoroughly frightened bv this .time' and began to scream whereat two shots were fired at the windows ,of the apartments and a voice called out to them to stop that noise or they would be killed. Clinton noticed a man standing in the shadow of the railroad station, which is 100 feet distant, and he fired at him, receiving a shot back, Just as the third safe went off. Mr. Clinton continued to fire at this man, who was in sight. While he was firing the man ln sight was Joined by three more from the office, and the four started down the track. One of, them called out that Mr. Clinton, who was doing the firing, was in an attic window, and three quick shots were fired at the window, the first of which came through the window and narrowly es caped Mr. Clinton. t The men started along the track to wards the city and Mr. Clinton at once telephoned to the New Haven police and called the postmaster, Wltllam P. Leete. and his assistant. Blakeslee Upon their arrival an Inspection was made of the office. It was dis covered that the doors of the Clinton home had. been secured so that the Clintons could not get out, and that the men had obtained entrance through a window of the office in the front Postmaster Leete and the few citizens u. i i nwitTaA In rsannnflG to Mr. Clinton's calls which were heard half a mile away, down to the Stiles brick vard went Into the postoffice and saw- all three safes naa oeen urcn uiioii. i,t th ctrnnsr box In the third had withstood tne yeggnieii uu ito the inside of the place.
