The Crawford Laundry 135 Fairfield Avenue Telephone 2910 LECTURE BY JUDGE LIGHT RECALLS STRANGE EXPERIENCE OF MR. AND MRS. S. R. WILMOT IN A DREAM MRS. WILMOT VISITS HER HUS BAND IN MID OCEAN AND HER APPARI TION IS SEEN BY TWO The Case Is Classic and Is Reported By the Society for Psychical Research and in Canaille Flammarion 's "Unknown" Mr. Wilmot Was Successful Manufacturer. The lecture of psychic phenomena given by Judge John H. Light, Friday evening, before an audience in South Church, has caused many people to consider experiences along this line In which they have themselves shared, or which they have been related to them. One of the classic instances of dis tant sight in dreams was originally re- related by three well known Bridge -I port people. They were Samuel R. Wilmot. his wife, and William J. Tait. Mr. Wilmot was a well known manu facturer. Mrs. Wilmot was one of the founders of the Berean Church. All are dead. The experience here re-nar rated was originally printed in the An nals of the Society for Psychic Re search, published in 1891. It was re produced by Camille Flammarion, the famous French Astronomer, in his work. "The Unknown," from which its present publication is taken. It falls into that group of border land experiences which the investiga tors classify under "distant sight in dreams." In this instance the dreamer seemed to feel herself two persons, and was seen in the second personality, not by her husband alone, but by another man as well. Both, it is needless to say, were shrewd men of the world, substantial business men, and little likely to have "queer" notions. Now follows: the personal narration of Mr. Wilmot: "On Oct. 3, 1863, I left Liverpool for New York, on Board of the Steamer City of Limerick of the Inman Line, commanded 'by Captain Jones. On the evening of the second day, after having passed Kinsale Head, we en countered a great storm, which lasted 9 days. During this time we saw neither sun, nor stars, nor did we sight any vessel. The bulwarks were stove in by the violence of the tempest and one of the anchors broke loose and did a great deal of harm before it could be stowed away again. Several big sails, though close reefed, were carried away, and their yards were DroKen. "During the night which succeeded the eighth day of the storm, the gale was a little less violent, and for the first time since we left port I was able to get a little refreshing sleep. To wards morning I dreamed that I saw my wife, whom I had lief t in the United States. She came to the door of my state room in her night dress. On the threshold she seemed to penceive that I was not alone; she hesitated a little and then came up to me, stooped and kissed me, and after having caressed me a few moments she quietly with drew. "When I awoke I was surprised to observe my roommate, whose berth was over mine, though ,1 could not see him very distinctly, for our state room was in the stern of the vessel, sitting up, leaning on his elbow and looking at me fixedly. "You are a lucky fellow,' he said at last, to have a lady come to visit you like that! I asked him to explain himself. At first he would not. but at last he told me what he had seen, for he was quite awaKe ana sitting up in his berth. It correspond ed exactly with what I had seen in my dream. "The name of my room-mate was : William J. Tait; he was not a man I likely to be guilty of a joke. He was i nr. tvio cnntrarv a very grave and re ligious man, whose word I cannot doubt. . , "The day after I landed, I took the train to Watertown. where my wife and children were living. As soon as we were alone her first question was: 'Did you receive my visit a week ago on Tuesday?' 'A visit from you, I said ' 'Why, we were a thousand miles at sea ' I know,' she said, 'but it seems to me as if I had gone to visit you.' 'Impossible,' I cried; 'tell me what makes you think so.' "My wife then told me that seeing the great storm raging, and knowing of the loss of the Africa 'bound for Boston, which sailed the same day we left Liverpool for New York, and had gone ashore on Cape Race, she had been very anxious about my safety.The night before, the same night when, as I have said, the tempest commenced to abate, she had stayed awake a long time thinking of me, and about four o'clock in the morning it seemed to her that she must come and fine me. Crossing the angry waves of the vast sea, she imagined that she came to a black ship, low in the water; she climbed on board, and, going down to the companion stairs, passed through the ship until she' reached my state room. 'Tell me,' she said 'are all the state rooms like the one I saw you in? Is the upper berth a little further back from the under one? There was a man in the upper berth who looked straight at me. and for a moment I was afraiT to come in, but at last r came up to you, bent over you kissed you, press ed you in my arms, and then I went away.' S. R. Wilmot, Manufacturer, Bridgeport." The account continues: "The New York Herald says that the City of Lim erick left Liverpool Oct. 3, 1865, Queenstown the 5th, and arrived at her wharf early on Oct. 23. "It also tells of the great storm, of the critical situation of the steamer and of the shipwreck of the Africa. Inqury has confirmed in various ways this strange story. Mr. Wilmot's sis ter, who was on the same boat writes: "On the subject of the singular ex perience of my brother one night on board the City of Limerick, I remem ber that Mr. Taft, who that morning took me down to breakfast because of the terrtble storm which was raging, asked me if the night before I had come in to see my brother, whose state room he shared . 'No,' I answered, 'Why?' 'Because', he said, 'I saw a woman all in white who came to see your brother." "Mrs. Wilmot also writes: "In answer to your question, did you see anything peculiar about the man in the upper berth? I must answer that after so long a time I cannot speak with any certainly as to minor details, but I know that I was much troubled by his presence and by per ceiving that he was watching me from above. I think that I told my dream to my mother the next morning, and I know that all day had a vivid impression that I had been to see my husband. This impression was so strong that I felt myself reassured and comforted, to my very great sur prise. Mrs. . R- Wilmot." The account continues: This Re markable case deserves particular at tention. It is rather old. The r.ccount was probably written more than 20 years after it took place. One of those DOES CONGRESS WISH TO RUN INDEPENDENT STEEL COMPANIES OF UNITED STATES OUT OF BUSINESS? (Continued From First Page.i That rone of these interests in the steel manufacturing business are ex pected to suffer in any normal market from the importations of steel is made more than manifest by the way the Wall Street quotations on steel securi ties are booming during this tariff agi tation when the steel commodity prices are excessively low. Are they not discounting the future? PRICE WAR OBJECT. The makers of the present "open market" extremely low prices on iron and steel products undoubtedly have a two-fold object in declaring a price war. First: To finally satisfy the popular demand for low prices, especially dur ing a tariff agitation, in endeavors to forestal the development of any popu lar demand for much lower duties, that the consumers might secure relief thereby from the socalled trust con trol of the market, now so long rigidly upheld, even during the dull times, during and since the panic. Second object, as openly claimed and spread broadcast by the big corpora tions, to severely punish the so-called independents for selling these products in competition with the so-called trust products and at the lower prices than the combines; and which lower prices they could well afford to and did first make. Now, how long will these low prices, recently established in declaration of an oper market, prevail, after the new tariff bill is passed, and with the growing scarcity of iron and steel scrap due to the relative increase in demand for the scrap1 as the result of an increase of 800 per cent. In the pro duction of open-hearth steel in the past eight or ten years, as compared with the production of Bessemer steel. The former process generally uses about one -half pig iron and one-half scrap in making up each open-hearth furnace charge. The Bessemer pro cess uses no scrap. THE OPPN HEARTH PROCESS. The so called independents in the iron and steel business use almost ex clusively the more modern and better open hearth process in steel making Whereas, such scrap, from five to ten years ago, used to rule in value at about three-quarters of the market p-ice of pig iron, it now often eom-rr-ands a higher price than pig iron; and with the pig iron market through sympathy with the advance in scrap also greatly enhanced in value as com pared with the general pig iron prices of five to ten years ago. The big steel corporation is not ap preciably handicapped by fluctuation in market prices of raw material, or increase hi general market value of its raw materials and supplies, in that it possesses its own ore mines, coal mines, blast furnaces, etc.; makes its own scrap largely, practically controls tho heavy railroad scrap, etc., and buys but little raw material in the opn market. INDEPENDENTS DOMINATE NO RAILROAD COS 1'ew of the Independents have their own iron ore properties and blast fur na :e, or any special or dominating In fluence in the directorate or manage ments, of the great railroad systems who are the largest producers of iron an 1 steel scrap. In consequence they arr compelled to go into the oper msrket to buy their raw material. In noi having molten pig iron to charge into their open hearth furnaces they are further compelled to use a larger proportion, for certain chemical and physical reasons, or iron and steel in any large quantities or beared the pig iron market prices? What incen tive could they have in helping to es tablish a fair or comparatively low market value in pig iron which is used so extensively by their competitors among the independent iron and steel mills. The higher the pig iron pricee go on Fteel making pig naturally the higher goes the prices for foundry pig iron, and with the result that the whole cost of all hardware, machinery agricultural implements and kindred lines of manufactured products are advanced and the sales prices to the farmer and other consumers of neces sity is relatively higher. The cost to manufacturers of these and kindred lines creep up to the point that ex portation ceases. There is less em ployment for American labor and those manufacturers like the radiator com panies, the harvesting machine manu facturers and others use their Ameri can capital for investment in the es tablishment of factories abroad to se sure the lower cost of raw materials also labor in the production of their line of merchandise for shipment among the foreign countries. MANUFACTURERS SUFFER. The manufacturers, mills and foun dry interests in New England, the At lantic, Pacific. Gulf States and those SIDE TRACKS GROW DAY OF TRUCKMAN IS PASSING It is the Opinion of Men in Carting Business that Door to Door Deliv ery from Cars is at Hand Suggested that Plan of Rail road Company is to Run Freight Cars Through Streets at Night and Hence Opposition to Grooved Rails. "Say do you want tto know -who is doing the trucking business of Bridge port? Well rn tell you that the Con solidated railroad is doing It," said one of the largest truckmen In the city this morning. "And they are going to do more of it." he added. He said that what he meant by the Consolidated doing the trucking was that the road had established so many sidings into the plants of large concerns that the long hauls of a dozen or ten years ago were a thing of the past. ZZZ LrSjr-2Zr Derore there w be nothing in truck who saw it la dead find cannot give scr .p. as compared with the pig iron an account of what he saw at first hand. We cannot feel certain that the testimony of the witnesses after so long a time had passed is exact, how ever honest it may be, nor can we trust all the details. Yet, after all these reservations, there is doubtless a remarkable correspondence between the Impression of the three persons Mrs. Wilmot had. either dreaming, or awake, a vision of her husband, and was able to make her way to him through the obstancles that surround ed him Mr. Wilmot dreamed what his wife thought, and Mr. Tait, awake, saw with his own eyes what seemed a dream to Mr. Wilmot. These are three inexplicable facts which we are forced to admit." NEW OFFICIALS ON THEIR JOB IN CITY COURT The new officials as a whole con ducted the city court proceedings this morning. Deputy Judge Wilder was on the bench. Assistant Prosecuting Attorney William A. Redden and As sistant Clerk John H. Grey were in their plares. It was the first time the new officials have appeared at one session. There was a big slate to greet them. Attorney Redden handl ed his end of the business like a vet eran. Tony Barbiera was fined $5 without costs and Clarence Cheshire $2 and costs on charges of breach of the peace and assault. The two young men who are both minors got into an altercation in a picture show Saturday night. Cheshire told Barbiera to take off his hat and received an obscene reply. Cheshire smashed Barbiera in the face. Both were arrested. Harry St. Clair, otherwise known as Harry Tyron, was charged with em bezzling a quantity of postal cards which had been given him to sell. Harry offered to produce the cards which he had not sold if he was given the chance. Judge Wilder suspended judgment on condition, that the unsold cards be produced. As the result of a free for all fight at 280 Hancock avenue yesterday Louis Bishoff was fined $3 and costs and Sanda Bellasa $5 without costs on charges of assault, breach of the peace and carrying concealed weapons. The case of Frank Ryan charged with burglary, was continued till to morrow. Ryan ischarged with break ing into the dove cote owned by Bar ney Steinhart. a boy of 12 year, at 1663 Main street, and stealing seven pigeons the particular pets of the boy. It is said that Ryan took the pigeons to the barn where he lives in the West End. He was arrested by Patrolman Ladd who located him. The case against John Rooney charg ed with non-support was continued' one month under the supervision of Pro bation Officer Canfield.

A Weed That Steals Oysters. A seaweed has invaded the oyster beds of France and carried off 400,000 oysters. It has carried them off bodily, as a thief would do. The minute seeds of this weed float up the English chan nel in the current of the gulf stream; they settle on oysters in the Breton beds of Morbiban, Qulberon and Belle Isle, and they grow to the size of a duck's egg. They are full of water, but at maturity the water evaporates, and air takes its place. The egg shaped seaweed is then a balloon, and. like a balloon, it lifts its oyster from the bot tom and bears it out to sea. Walking In New York. Men walk more rapidly in the streets of New York city than in any other city in the world.

Now. with the growing scarcity of this scrap as compared with the rapid ly crowing relative demand for scrap the prices are constantly increasing as compared with the general activity and ma ket prices of finishing mill pro diKts in the iron and steel business; so with the consequent sympathetic in- crelse In the pig iron prices, at the same time it is very obvious that the Indspenoent, or smaller iron and stee' woiking companies, are liable to be crovded out of competition with the big corporations, as was the steel woi ks of Miliken Bros. In New York harbor, and a number of others who hae succumbed to the great handicap cent years; (materials now so power recent years; (materials now so power full f controlled and frequently mani pulated over a wide range of fluctua tion.) unless Congress materially re lieves the condition by throwing the world's markets for raw material, or at least on iron and steel scrap, prac tically open to Importations free of duty. THE CANADIAN DUTY. Cnnada has an import duty on iron and steel scrap of but $1.00 per ton whereas American mills, endeavoring to take scrap, in from Canada under the DIngley tariff, have to pay $4.00 per ton duty, and under the proposed Aldi Ich duty or tariff. $2.50 per ton; undir the Payne Tariff 50 cents per ton Iis obvious that there is no recip rocity for the life of an international iron and steel scrap trade; for Canada can. and does, draw on the United States for large quantities of this scrap, and we cannot replace that ton nage by imports from Canada, or from other countries, without paying a pro- nioitive tariff, if in excess of 60 cents a ton provided by the Ways and Means Committee of the House in the Payne Bill, as passed on to the Senate Fin ance Committee. , TO PROTECT INDEPENDENTS. If these Independent mills can be protected against the cornering of this scrap, to insure the better and ade quate supply at a reasonable price, it will help preserve them as Independent competitors and aid in regulating fin ishing mill market prices. The more business they can then do the greater the quantity, or tonnage, of domestic pig iron (still protected by a $2.50 per ton duty as produced in the Aldrich and Payne BUI) they will require in making their steel; for this pig can not be dispensed with, and neither, for chemical reasons, can the pig iron be replaced to any appreciable extent, by the scrap steel, in the open-hearth fur nace charge. This can but result in more business for the blast furnace and iron ore mines and properties: especially those not already owned by the big cor porations who seek no market for these materials among the independent steel mills. Are not the independent blast fur nace Interests, if there be such, liable to kill the goose that lays the golden egg, if. by insisting on scrap iron and steel being dutiable at the same price as pig iron, they thus help the big corporations to run the smaller com petitors out of business, for the big corporations need buy no more pig iron (having their own blast furnaces.) than enough to fix the high market price thereon to assist in establishing a high price on such of their steel sales contracts, the prices for which is bised upon a differential of a certain sum over and above the generally quoted market price for pig iron. For instance, contracts like the world famous steel plate contract with the Pressed Steel Car Company, which It is also commonly reported involved the return of all thafleompiny'a Iron and steel scrap to the company furnishing the steel plate. When in recent years has the big corporation bought pig iron in costs of their Iron and steel scraD pig Iron and steel and expected great relief from this new tariff when last November they cast their votes Are they to be doomed to disappoint ment, and if so will they and their employees not know In the future how to vote to more purpose Take the tariff on Iron and steel scrap again for illustration. The Payne Bill first had it on the free list. but finally voted in the House a duty or 50 cents a ton, and now the Aldrich Finance Committee of the Senate pro poses to make it five times as high or a total of J2.50 a ton, namely, ldenti cal to the duty on new material In the form of pig iron. Its production involves no plant in vestment and requires no productive labor, so m itself obviously needs no protection. However, the manager of both the Western Pig Iron Association ana tne Eastern pig iron Association, numbering scores of blast furnace com panies, and the big steel corporations controlling the price of pig iron, are generally understood to be insisting that this iron and steel scrap or old material Should carry a duty the same as on pig iron and why if not in reality to the better extinguish the competi tion of the independent steel mills and stop their being a factor in establish ing a lower market price on finished steel products to the consumers at large than those scheduled by the big companies. But is this wise and in the interests of the consumers of steel. If accom plished will the country not pay dearly for its thoughtlessness and shortsight edness in not encouraging and provid ing for a continuance of fair competi tion among domestic producers that the home market process may be kept right and on a fair level as compared with the prices which the big corpora tions establish for their export of ma terials to foreign countries and with out the necessity of throwing the Am erican market wide open to the impor tations of materials much more ad vanced in manufacture. There was imported of scrap iron and steel, as reported to the House for the year 1906, but about 13,500 tons, as compared with a production of pig iron in this country of some 25,000,000 to 30,000,000 tons, or of scrap imported varsus pig iron produced here of only about one-twentieth part of one per cent., or one ton of scrap for 2,000 tons of pig iron made, and from which the Government did derive at the $4.00 per ton Dingley bill duty only some $54,000. If, with a 50 cent per ton duty there were only 1.000.000 tons of scrap im ported it would be less than four per cent of the pig producing capacity of this country, so why should the pig iron producers fear a low duty on 3crap, for it is doubtful if foreign markets could supply anything like this country without their foreign mar kets prices per ton being enhanced to a value prohibiting further importa tions to this country, but were there a million tons of scrap thus Imported on this duty basis this Government would derive a revenue of about a half a million dollars or some ten fold the revenue secured on scrap in 1906 Broken pig iron could not be import ed as scrap for the laws require its takinir the same duty as pig iron and neither could the direct products of the blast furnaces abroad be run Into some other form or shape than pig and shiDDed into this country as a subterfuge without iron identi cal in analysis with pig iron being classed as pig iron and subject to the pig iron duty. The blast furnace in terests can safely trust the Custom house authorities and those in charge of the various ports of entry to en force this condition, for scrap is al ways understood in the iron and steel business to consist of only old and waste material and is never made to order. Much could be said along the same line in favor of free iron ore now al ready so closely held or cornered and controlled by the big corporations and their allies, and by trade agreements, and even free coal has its place on the tariff bill for the consideration of the public in deciding these rates of duty for the general good and to the end that the industrial pursuits may not be too much centralized through grav itating to locations having special nat ural advantages. In keeping these va rious industries now still fairly well scattered throughout the country from being consolidated into a few immense centralized plants for the aggregate production needed it safe-guards the interests of the laboring classes in many ways and protects those who own their own homes in their present districts of employment. Cost of production in this country must be got down and kept on a prop er level so that this country can com pete in foreign markets on account of the over-production In this country as compared with its normal consump tion, otherwise the labor of this coun try will not And sufficient employment and this labor in competing with itself for employment will experience greater suffering than would result from less tariff protection. FLANAGAN SAID: "HELLO DEARIE" ing or express business in this city that would not be done by the railroad. He said: "I am surprised that the news papers did not grasp the significance of the statement made by "Vice Pres ident Townley before the aldermanic street committee a short time ago. He said 'the company is desirous of lay ing the T. rails because at some future time it hopes to connect up its electric systems with what are known as its main lines or steam roads. "Now the railroad could not run freight cars containing several cars of coal or general merchandise on groov ed rails with safety. It undoubtedly" intends to land heavy freight at va rious points of the city by operating freight cars at night after the pas senger business of the day is over. Then the company has control of the electric express business and it will not be long before deliveries will be made direct from the cars. Later they will deliver freight from New York from trolley cars and then there will be fewer truckmen than there are to day." At the meeting of the Common council to be held to-night the Con necticut Co., will ask for permission to broaden the dummy, gauge between its rails in Golden Hill street; the right to establish a temporary siding for its express business in Water street, and permission to locate another curve at Main and Golden Hill streets. Public hearings will be held on this matter It is not expected that any action will be taken to-night relative to pro viding an entrance to the car barn or that grooved rails will be discussed. The mayor stated this morning that he understood that the railroad was go ing to submit another plan relative to the car barn entrance and would also have a communication relating to grooved rails within a few days. NEWTOWN David Flanagan, who accosted two girls last Friday night on Harrison street was fined $5 and costs by Judge Wilder in the city court this morning on a charge of breach of the peace. Flanag.i". was arrested by Patrolman McCullough on complaint of the girls He conducted his own defense in court this morning and accused practically the whole police department of being too officious. The girls testified that Flanagan saluted them with "Hello Dearie" when he met them. Flanagan acknowledged the accusation and ex plained that he thought the girl he accosted was an old friend whom he had known since she was a child. He gave the name of the girl. He said he had apologized when he d'scovered his mistake, which statement the girls denied. He appealed under bonds of $50.
