VOTING MACHINE DID NOT REGISTER No Addition to "Yes" Vote on the High School Question in Hartford. Hartford, April 27. There was a de fect in the recording apparatus of one of the voting machines used in the Tenth Ward at the recent election which registered but one vote in favor of the technical high school appropria tion. This fact was established yester day, when, with the expiration of the twenty-day limit prescribed by law. the machine was opened. Repeated votes yesterday in favor of the ques tion resulted in no addition to the sol itary vote already recorded for it on the machine. The machine worked as readily as ever and was apparently perfect, ex cept as to the recording apparatus which registered the affirmative vote cn the technical high school question. It was decided to leave the "Yes" vote on the high school question as recorded rather tllttn to have the ma chinist investigate the trouble in or der that A. S. Hamilton, traveling agent of the Empire Voting Machine Company, might be notified and come to Hartford and investigate. COUNCIL PASSES RESOLUTION ON DEATH OF LILLEY The resolution upon the death of His Excellency, the late George L. Lilley, governor of Connecticut offered by the mayor last night to, the common coun cil was as follows: "Whereas, our chief magistrate, George L. Lilley, has been removed from earthly scenes In the flower of j his manhood, and while engaged in the ; discharge of his responsible duties to i the people of Connecticut, and, . "Whereas, his death has carried gen uine sorrow to all classes alike in this community, who mourn his untimely end: "Be it Resolved. by the Common Council of the City of Bridgeport, that we record our deliberate judgment that in George L. Lilley the State pos sessed a chief magistrate who, in his career as public servant, fearlessly ad vocated and advanced the true intent of the people;who performed his public duties with fidelity to the great trust reposed in him; and who sustained the best traditions of our commonwealth. ! His progress from early privations and by his own exertions, to the station to which he had attained when strick en down, his unflinching adherence to principle in his public life, afford an example that may well be emulated by the young men of this state. "Resolved, that this estimate of Gov ernor Lilley be perpetuated by spread ing this resolution upon the records of our city government, and that our deep sympathy with his bereaved family be manifested by sending to them a I copy of this resolution." The resolution was unanimously adopted and made a part of the pro ceedings. ACCUSED MEN RETURNED $18 TO MAN WHO MISSED IT Shelton, April 27. As Mr. and Mrs. H. N. Packard were getting off a Bridgeport bound trolley car Saturday night two men jostled Mr. Packard, and a moment later he discovered that his money had been stolen. The men were captured and taken to a nearby store, the owner of which is an officer. The men denied they had picked Mr. Pack ard's pockets but declared they were in such a hurry to get to Bridgeport that they would pay Mr. Packard the am ount he alleged be had lost, $18. They did so and departed. After they had gone it occurred to the other partici pants in the incident that their readi ness to settle might ha e been an in dication of their guilt. POETRY INSPIRED BY LILLEY'S DEATH TIE UP THE DOGS ! Tie up the dogs the chase is o'er, The trail gives forth no sound. No need for further yelp and bite The game is run to ground! The snarling pack are slinking back, Away from public eyes. Serene and calm, all safe from harm The weary quarry lies. Ye blue blood dogs of pedigree, With noses keen for shine, What Is your gain to mar and maim, To kill before the time? The game it ran a royal race Before the hounds in bay Tis good a royal victory Rests with the game today. Tie up the dogs the race is won! The game ran well before A horde of maddened curs and now Sleeps well for evermore. h. r. r. Waterbury American. THE DEAD GOVERNOR He sleeps. Upon his solemn bier he sleeps; Derobed of all but pomp, which keeps Bright sentinel with futile arms About his silent corpse. Him no alarms Can waken or dismay, nor watches he The funeral parade of obsequy. He, winning, put the victory from his hands And in his triumph lay down to sweet rest. The grief of it not they who loved him best. But those who smote him owe him saddest tears. The grief of those unkindnesses earth hears, And weeps. Hartford Courant. "IX MEMORIAM" Deep down he lies Moldering in the grave. The soul, it flies Numb ring with the brave; The past is gone Memory with us still The life of one. Remember 'twas God's will. Deep down he lie The casket only there, The life it lives, 1 memory ever dear. How great the pain. Patient through trials all The life of one. Remember 'twas God's call. Deep down he lies The one we loved so well. The time it flies I would for ever tell. While we are here Mortals and poor are we, Our lives to shine Always remember thee. -Henry Lee, In the .New Haven Leader. GEORGE L. LILLEY The struggle ends! And so the strife is o'er, Peace comes at last, like music to the soul. The poison shafts of hate can sting no more; No more need kin and faithful friends condole. His wearied spirit welcomes its re- lease. And mourning thousands speak their grief today; Aill calumny is stilled, all slanders cease A State is weeping o'er his lifeless clay. But though his valiant heart has ceased -to heat And Fate has written "Finis" to life's story, In death his victory is made com plete, And Truth will wreathe his name in lasting glory. The Reaper Death must needs climb upward to embrace him. Unto the highest pinnacle whereon his State could place him. John Rodemeyer, in Hartford Post, Nun KffleiTby Delivery Wagon New York, April 27. On her way to Central Park in charge of a hundred children, Sister Gertrude, a nun of the Dominican Convent of Our Lady of the Rosary, was knocked down and almost instantly killed by a delivery wagon owned by the Brooklyn Novelty Com pany at the corner of Sixty-third St., and Third Avenue yesterday afternoon. The driver of the wagon. Isador Wolf, was locked up in the Sixty-seventh Street Station charged with homicide. Yes, "The Blood Is die Life" If Bad, Hardly Worth Living. If Good, Healthy and Happy. "I am well pleased with my experi ence with Hood's Sarsaparilla for my blood. My trouble was of a scrofulous nature sores frequently came on my neck, increasing in number and size. Years of treatment failed to effect a permanent cure. The sores dis charged freely, and gave me much pain. The drain on my system had been so great I was completely worn out, easily became tired, and did not have much appetite. My neck was so sore and swollen, I could hardly turn my head around, but I took Hood's faithfully, and within two months the benefit began to come. The sores healed up, my general health im proved, appetite came back, and my flesh took on a good color. Since then I have never been troubled with scrof ula, and have had good health all the time." Mrs. Alvin Barton, West St., Walpole. Mass., Jan. 10. 1909. S"Hoods Sarsaparilla effects its wonderful cures, not simply because it contains sarsaparilla. but because it combines the utmost remedial values of more than 20 different ingredients. Begin taking Hood's Sarsaparilla today. Get it in the usual liquid form or in chocolated tablets known as Sarsatabs. 100 Doses One Dollar.
