The natural oyster growthers will be
jiad to learn that another firm will

aeea oysters In this vicinity in the near
future. H W. Porter of Stratford;
ha formed on alliance with prominent
New York oystermen aao the result

stockholder In much valuable oyster

Porter who will be the Connecticut
repraeentaitive of the Ann and will do
ail the buying here. Mr. Porter has
a large section, of ground in the State.
Be owns 880 acres near the break
waiter In Stratford) and patches in
other parts of the Sound in this vicin
ity. The Connecticut grounds will be
used oasBiusively for storage. The
new company proposes to furnish a
continuous market throughout the year
for seed oysters.
Natural growth era who have been
unable to sell seed when the market
was slack will now be able to sell at
any time when the law allows the tak

freezses on deck and is lost because
there are no buyers who are situated

LAYS DOWN THE LAW
Judges Charge to Grand Jury Anent
Reckless Auto Speeding.
New York, April 6. Judge Swann in
his charge to the April Grand Jurors
in General Sessions yesterday express
ed his opinion of automobile speeding,
which he called- "a. new method of
committing old crhnes." He said:
"Within the last month many crimes
have been committed by men possess
ed of the speed mania. They run down
women and children on our streets.
Women andl children and the infirm
and aged are entitled to the use of the
streets as much as the strong. No
man has an exclusive right to the
streets. EJven. the man who devotes
his time to speeding this modern en
gine has no more right to the public
street than the weak and infirm.
"Men who do these acts recklessly
and without regard! to the rights of
others, and who either malm or kill,
are guilty of either manslaughter or
other grades of crime, and it seems to
me that it would be a proper and fit
ting thing that, if such a case comes
before you, you should not hesitate to
indict if the evidence warrants R; and
that you should not hesitate to indict
for the crime of manslaughter if you
think that that crime has 'been com
mitted. "It is further provided by section 29
of the penal laws that a man who aids
and abets in the commission of crime
is equally guilty with the man who
commits the crime. The owner of an
automobile will sometimes take delib
erately a chauffeur who has been
known, to be reckless in his driving.
The minute that the owner of the au
tomobile puts such a chauffeur upon
his machine in the public streets the
law presumes that the owner knows
the ordinary act that the chauffeur is
going- to commit. A man is presumed
to intend the ordinary and usual re
sults of his own acts, and the owner
who puts a reckless chauffeur in an
automobile and' sends him through the
streets could be properly found by you
to be equally guilty with the chauffeur
of the crime, whatever it may be, that
may reasonably be expected to be com
mitted by that chauffeur."
IS "AWFDLLY TIRED"
Representative Clark of Florida Tired of
Following Mr. Bryan.
Washington, April 6. In the House
yesterday, Mr. Clark (Derru, Fla.,)
"We do not intend, so far as I am
concerned and the people I represent,
to follow your Nebraskan Populist ic
leader any more. I think the South
ern Democracy never made a greater
mistake in its life than when it turned
its back on its Democratic friends in
the Bast, whom it has driven from the
party, and tied up with Populism out
In Nebraska. I am just a plain, old
fashioned Democrat, and when you all
get back there you will be better off.
I have followed him (Bryan) three
times, and I am awfully tired."
