Paderewski and his manager, I G. fiharpe, of London, left New Haven Just before 8 o'clock, for the last time, lie hoped. The lack of appreciation of the great musician was due to several reasons. One Of them, was the high price of seats, one of the charges being $2.5o. The approach of the" holiday season prevented many from buying large numbers of tickets as did the report that Paderewski had played in other cities for less money. A considerable number of people from the university section of the city went to the theater, however, and many ladies braved the wet weather to hear the pianist. The report was given out at the theater that the star 'was ill and could not play, Manager El dridge himself staying for some time in the lobby of the theater and telling the people they could have their money Ok this morning at 11 o'clock. It was not Until late in the afternoon that Paderewski found that the house which would effusively greet his ef forts would be extremely select rather than large. While this might In a way gratify the .pride of the pianist, the financial return would not be as large as if the gallery was packed, and he commenced to fume. He said he would leave the city at once and none of the efforts made to eret Mm tn rnmnin Itt'aro of any Ervnil. The far and wide advertised performance was doomed.

After consulting a timetable, Pader nvski made hasty arrangements to g-o o New York immediately. Manager Kldridge constituted a receiving party ind did everything in his power to make those who had purchased tickets omfortable. Many of the society people who were oming to the performance went to he Cass Gilbert lecture at the art chooj. Others of less artistic tem erament went to one of the local Nico- ts and heard Caruso stag through a napnopnone. The last time Paderewski was here e was inconvenienced.

Southampton, Dec. 10. The Red Star line steamer Kroonland, from Antwerp, December 7, to New York, which broke her shaft off Scilly islands last Sun day, was towed into port this evening. The accident occurred during a gale just as the passengers were turning in for the night. The vessel suddenly ijuivered, took several plunges that threw almost everybody aboard off his feet, and then slowed down. The offi cers arid crew acted with commendable coolness, the former allaying the alarm of the passengers as far as possible.

Although the weather was rough and high seas were running she made good progress until picked up by tugs off this port. All the first and second cabin passengers and many of the steerage passengers have been transferred to the steamship Majestic which leave here tomor row for New York, via Cherbourg.

SEVEN LIVES LOST Bridge Constructing Over Branch of Susquehanna Collapses. t MANY WORKMEN HURT Disaster Caused by Flood, Which Wrecks False Work, of Structure. Bloomsburg, pa., Dec. 10. High wa ter to-night caused the collapse of the bridge in course of erection ever the west branch of the Susquehanna river at '.Mifflirtvllle, eight miles north of here, and resulted in the death of seven men and the injury of nearly a score of others, two perhaps fatally. Forty men were at work on the trav eler on the middle span of the struc ture when it collapsed. They were all thrown into the swollen river. The dead are: A. W Fahs, Selins Grove; Charles Creitter, Selins Grove; Adam Nubs, Selins Grove; Adam Trltt, Beaver Val ley; Irvin Updegraff, Georgetown; Millard Bowman, Mifflinville; George B. Faux, address unknown. The two most seriously, injured are William Boyer of New York, whose back is broken, and Ray Sherwood, whose skull was fractured. Both are believed to be mortally hurt. The collapse, was caused by the rapid rise in the river. The water rose dur ing the day at the rate of almost one foot an hour, and it is believed debris carried down the stream by the floods struck the false work of the bridge and caused it to fall. The bridge was built by the state to replace one carried away by a freshet in 1903. Superintendent Lawton, in charge of the construction, and who was on the bridge when It fell, says that he has not been able to assign a cause for the collapse, aside from the washing of the false work by the high water.

' ROAD PROMISES A NEW STATIOr Announcement Made by Le gal Representative at Cedar Hill Hear ing. EXACT LOCATION NOT DETERMINED Result is the Withdrawal of : Opposition from Many - Residents of Fair v - , Haven. What was contemplated as a fight from start to finish turned out to be a very mild affair yesterday when the railroad commissioner met at the Cedar Hill station for a hearing on the question of the abolishment of that station. This was because of the un expected promise made by the railroad through its legal representatives to es tablish another station at some place within a radius which would be easy of access in the vicinity. As this seem ed to fce satisfactory to the residents of the section and particularly to the representatives of the Eleventh and Twelfth Ward Civic association, which has taken up the gauntlet as the champion of the Fair Haven interests involved there was nothing to do but to call the hearing concluded, which was done. It would have been difficult to have chosen more disagreeable weather conditions than were the case at the time set for the hearing, 1 o'clock. The heavens were not only letting loose ft deluge of water, 'but the four winds o the compass were blowing the rain in every direction, and up on top of the little prominence on which the Cedar Hill station is built was found not tho least protected place in which to weather a storm. It had been expected that the rail road commissioners would be late in arriving. At 12:80 they had not yet finished a hearing at the New Haven city hall on the question of the prop er kind of fenders for the trolley cars of the city, and it was hot expected that they would be able to get out to the Cedar Hill station in time to com mence the hearing promtly. They did get there, however, as well as the rep resentatives of the various Interests Involved, the railroad 'company, the city of New Haven and the Eleventh and Twelfth Ward Civic association. The gentlemen on the railroad com mission were Andrew F. Gates of Hartford, chairman; Orsanus R. Fyler of Torrington and William O. Sey- (Contlnued on Second Page.)

Chief William H. Whildey, of the Westville police, was notified, and kept the telephone wires busy communicat ing with all parts of the state most of the day.

Smith was clerk. v' James B, Smith moved that the tax rate be fixed at three and one-half mills, an Increase of one-half a mill over the past year, as the borougirf would probably have to pay about $2, 500 for policing Savin Rock, which Is now unprotected. C. K. Bush, town prosecuting attor ney, said the outcome of the suit on the injunction oibtained by David Piatt restraining the town of Orange from policing the shore, was doubtful, and it would therefore be wise for' the borough to be prepared to do such policing. . .

A resolution was adopted requesting the board of warden and burgesses to appoint a committee consisting of the warden, two burgesses, the first select man of Orange and two citizens to investigate park sites and their' pur chase cost and report to the borough.
