Citizens of this city have always had good reason to be proud of its business Initatlve, a progressiveness that has sent the name of Bridgeport all over the world. Among the busi ness projects is one in which everyone should take special pride from a civic view point namely the new hostelry, the Stratfield. As a hotel the hostel ry is complete in every detail and there is no more interesting feature of Its equipment than the telephone system which is in operation there; one of the largest private hotel tele phone exchanges in the state equip ping the Stratfield with the most mod ern telephone facilities. When Mr. Wheeler decided' to open the Stratfield he entered into nego tiations with the New England Tele phone Company for the installation of a switchboard and inter commun icating system which should be com plete in every detail and afford the patrons of the house just as efficient telephone facilities as they would have in any Metropolitan hotel. The working' plans called for conduits in the building through which telephone cables could be carried to all parts of THE STRATFIELD 'S the structure, the installation of a larse terminal and switchboard. These plans were carried out to the letter and the system after weeks of labor was installed. The switchboard, which Is furnished in mahogany, is located on the first floor to the left of the office. It Is the latest type of Western Electric board having positions for two operators. It is equipped for 250 telephones and connects some 200 at the present time. Trunk lines connect this switch board with the Southern New Eng land Telephone Company's central of fice switchboard in this city. The operation of the switchboard Is the same as in the central office board of the telephone Oompany. In front of each operator are fifteen pair of cords used in establishing connections. The signals are given by tiny lamps by means of which the operator knows when the conversations have been completed. By using all the cords on the board it is possible for very many connections to be established at the same time either between telephones within the hotel orbetween the hotel and Bridgeport siroscribers, or be tween stations in the hotel and other cities within or beyond Connecticut. In order to insure the most efficient op eration of the system two operators who bave had several years exper ience with the local exchange of the Telephone Company are in charge of this work. In addition to the switchboard there are three booths finished also in ma hogany. One of these is connected Into the Stratfield switchboard; the other two trunk directly to the central of fice of the telephone Company and are operated as pay-stations.

Iff' i yMfm3 jjwj Frank Brown, boa of Mr. and Mrs. The system outside of the switchboard- shows perhops even more clear ly the completeness of the telephone arrangements. On each floor, beginning with the second, boxes or terminals have been built in the corridor walls, two on each floor. From one of these wires are carried to the rooms on the east side of the building and from the other the circuits run to the west wing of the hotel. Running from the switch board through the conduits to these terminals in pipes are special cables, these cables containing twenty-four and twenty pair of copper wires. At the terminals these wires are split up and distributing wires run to the dif ferent telephone sets. These wires are concealed in the walls so that the on ly indications of a telephone system are the switchboard and the booths and sets in the various rooms and of fices. On the wall of practically every guest room is a square mahogany hotel set. There are other telephones in the restaurant, the office, the ball room, the private dining rooms, wait ing rooms, engine rooms, in fact ev erywhere that there could be the slightest need for telephone service. All of these telephones of course are connected into the switchboard on the 'PHONE EXCHANGE- first floor. In addition there are sta tions in certain halls at which a hall clerk and bell boys are constantly on duty. To get a still better idea of the value of this system we will assume that John Jones is dressing previous to hurrying through his breakfast and catching his train. He wants to talk with New York, Boston, Chicago or some city in this state. Stepping to the telephone in his room he calls up the hotel operator and gives her the data for his call. By the time that he has finished dressing he has the party on the wire and) makes his call with out having' to leavs his room or lose any time. It would be the same If he desired to talk with anyone In the city or with a guest In another part or tne notei. The telephone is used in the Strat field as a time saver in another man ner, John Jones, who has a room on the third floor, calls up the office and says what he wants. Thus the ne ceesity of first sending a boy to find out what is wanted and then filling the order by a second trip is avoided,. ine aeiay is less, the service more efficient, the guest better pleased. It is but a single instance of the way in which the telephone service assists in the work of giving the patrons of the hotel the best possible service. The presence of the telephone in the pri vate dining rooms, waiting, rooms, etc. works out in the same way. The picture accompanying this ar ticle gives some idea of the switch board but it is when one has found the need of the telephone service of ten In a hurry that the completeness of the system in use at the Stratfield becomes most forcibly evident.

THREE HUNDRED ORGANIZE AGAINST PROFANE LANGUAGE With a charter list of 300 members the Holy Name Society of St. Mary'6 Church was formed, yesterday, at a meeting held in the church basement. The members are pledged not to swear profanely by any oath whatever and particularly not to take in vain the name of the Saviour. The movement for the society was instituted by the Paulist fathers during their recent visit to St. Mary's. The following officers were elected: President. Michael Mc Namara; vice-president, Christopher Hope; secretary, James L. McGovern; treasurer, John J. McCarthy; chaptin, Father Mulcahey. The meeting was address by Rev. Fathers Murphy and Broderick. Father Murphy gave an interesting talk upon the history of the society. He said: "This society started at the time of the crusades. It is one of the oldest societies in the church. It has been approved by the Popes an coun cils of the church. The object of the society is to overcome the vice of cursing and swearing both in Its mem bers and in the community at large by the good example of the members." Father Murphy defined cursing to be that form of profanity In which one Derson wishes evil to another, while swearing consists In calling God to witness lightly and in other misuse of the Holv Name. Father Broderick gave a stirring ad dress, dwelling on the great benefit to be derived front the society, both to the members themselves andi for the parish. Father Mulcahy was appoint ed chaplain. Meetings will be held semi-annually, but the obligation re quires the members to attend the sac rament in a body once in three months. The society is divided Into sections and the following men have been appointed section prefects: James L. McGovern, William A. Redden, Sylvester M. Mil ler, John Hope, Christopher Hope, James K earns, John Lyddy, James Feeley, J. J. McCarthy. Thomas E. Hearn, James J. Kennedy, and John Tague. INSTRUCTORS MEET IN DISCUSSION OF CRIMINALS (Special from United Press.) Chicago, June 7. Criminals and criminal laws were discussed at a congress that met today in the North western University building. The idea of the meeting, according to Dean John H. Wigmore and Professor Roscoe Pound of the University Law School, its originators, is to bring together all the varying Interests to formulate propositions for reform methode In dealing with crime. Perhaps the most radical topic pro posed for discussion was a suggestion that convicts be employed at some profitable labor, the proceeds of which, instead of going to the State or county, shall be used for the support of those dependent upon the criminal. The abolition of the Grand Jury, which many students say has outlived its usefulness, will also be considered. The delegates that assembled this morning were divided Into three sec tions for the consideration of the fol lowing general topics: Treatment, penal and remedial of offenders; or ganization, training and appointment of official &4 criminal law and proce dure. About 100 delegates were present from all parts of the country and are for the most part connected with col leges and universities. SMALLPOX SCARE AT WESLEYAN RESULT OF HAZING (Special from United Press.) New Haven, June 7.

SffnttIlair says: Fcr mine THE PLEA Orphanage, Famine and Poverty the Toll of the Turkish Massacres A Native's Story of His Country's Trials Y. M. KAREKIN. (The writer of this plea for American representations in the Armenian Crisis, is a son of one of the leading men of the Province of Maamuret-ul-aziz in Central Armenia. His father was impoverished by the pillage and mass acres of 18I5, and afterwards govern ment officials forced him to total bankruptcy by various devices com mon in Turkish government circles. Mr. Karekin's father was away from home at the time of the last massacres and barely escaped. The son, a boy a little over thirteen, fell in dodging a hatchet thrown at his head. His mother, who was near him, fainted at the sight. She lay in a pool of blood, and the Turks, thinking Jfer dead, left her there. The boy, after seeing his uncle killed, although wounded him self, ran until exhausted and lay among dead and wounded bodies till morning, while the Moslems mauled them over, giving the last blows that left only corpses behind.) To prevent have I caught your gos pel? To prevent famine, orphanhood, distress. It Is with such words that I bespeak the interest of Americans TO prevent the slaughters of my country men in Asiatic Turkey. My plea is not a random one. After the 1895 and 1896 massacres, central Armenia became a veritable field of orphan asylums. Different mission ary organizations, the French Roman Catholic, German Lutheran, the Amer ican missions established scores of them, at least two In each principal town, numbering in all In the neigh borhood of 150 throughout the interior provinces. Furthermore, for eighteen months theresehas been famine In Asiatic Tur key. The 1895 and 489 massacres, brutal though they were, did not de crease the supply of bread stuffs, be cause the farmers had done their sum mer work and the massacres came in October. Now, the disturbances are coming at a critical time. This is the month for the farmers to plant. Should the seed time go past and another summer's crop fail, hunger would claim the country. Long, long before the outbreak of the present troubles. It has been harassed in ways that leave tt weak. The Christian is the farmer of Asiatic Turkey. The fam ine has not been of God's sending. The old regime of the Sultan is wholly responsible for poor conditions. Bribery and oppression at the hands of subordinate officials could be trac ed to his encouragement. Chiefs of different Kurdish tribes arid influen tial Mohammedans have forcibly taken away the tillable land from Christians, on one pretest or another, mainly threatening that they would betray them as revolutionary men, which is the biggest fear In the coun try, and have turned these tille lands into wild cattle pastures. On the other hand, taxation has been growing heavier and heavier every year. The Sultan's official goes to the poor wid ow who has only one son of eighteen, a sole protector, who tills the land with a yoke of oxen, the only treas ures that he owns, and supports his mother. The official conducts away forcibly that yoke of oxen and sells it at auction and leaves him helpless. Orphanage, famine and poverty the toll of the massacre is not complete even with these. We must add sick ness. In 1895, In those cities that were along the rivers, the bodies of the dead were thrown Into the water after lying about the streets .for a week or more. This year's massacre, starting in the southern part of the country where the climate Is very warm, and gradually spreading to the northern, has summer before it and will certainly mean cholera, for Meso potamia is near to the sources of the plague In Arabia. We must see the Armenian massa cres in relation to the situation ait Constantinople. There are, perhaps, 2,500,000 Armenians with probably 20, 000,000 Mohammedans in the country which they inhabit. They were loaded with taxes and famine was starting in the country when, last summer, con stitutional government was established in Turkey. Under the constitution, the provinces were to elect representa tives with free votes. Instead, the Turkish officials threatened the pub lic, especially the Armenians, Into casting their votes for certain Turkish tyrants most of whom were the lead ers of the 1895 massacres. However, the Armenians succeeded in having eight representatives, two of them the most able lawyers of their country. During the nine months of the parlia mentary session, repeated complaints came from the provinces that the us ual atrocities were growing worse. The president of the Chamber, Ahmed Riza, the present grand visier to she, put them to one side and those who Insisted on having their complaints before parliament were threatened with being thrown out of office, for the young Turks are Pan-Islamites. There is another element In the re form party In Turkey, which, while standing out for constitutional govern ment and the empire, would leave large measures of self government to the races and cities composing it. After the constitution was restored last sum mer, a number of broad-minded, well educated Moslem officials who were exiled by the old regime and who also were members of the Young Turk par ty, returned to Constantinople They noticed that the Committee of Union and Progress was trying to be all powerful in civil matters and dis criminating against different Chris tian elements because of racial pre judice. These leaders, the nucleus of the present Liberal party, held that if five hundred years of tyranny and oc casional butchery could not force these different proud old races to forget their nationality, the present system could not force them to do so and make them Ottomans now that they had been given freedom of press and speech. Besides, they pointed out, it was the Christian element which had advanced the commerce, the industry, the skilled labor and art. No sooner had the Liberal party with its broader notions come into power, early in April, than the reactionaries provoked the military uprising in Con stantinople, which provoked the coun ter revolution of the Young Turks and has led by quick stages to the deposi tion of the old sultan. While the Young Turks were still marching on Con stantinople, the ecclesiastics, suspect ing what their fate would be. fled In land to the Armenian provinces to agitate massacre and plunder there. My belief is that the real struggle in Turkey is yet to come, whether the program of the Liberals or of the Com mittee of Union and Progress shall be carried out. The Liberals have a cer tain portion of the army on their side, which had kept neutral during the last two weeks' trouble; the ecclesiastics are by no means shorn of their strength. An Oriental parable says that when the two horses fight, the donkey that goes between gets the worst of it. That is the case with the Armenians. What I plead for is such action by the Christian nations as wltl save them from slaughter whatever the outcome between the civil factions at Constantinople. It is all but farce to say that the Turkish government cannot control the mob. Turkish mobs are cowards and one soldier, if he has a proper command, can stop a hun dred civilians if he levels his gun in a business like manner. For the Christian who had a gun in his house and threatened to shoot, the mob did not venture on that house. But Chris tians In Armenia are .not armed. For ten years, they have been put into prison if so much aa a revolver has OF ARMENIA been found in their houses; while the Moslems do business in the market place -with revolvers in their belts as ornaments. Yet the civilized world wonders why the Armenians die like sheep. Great Britain signed a treaty with tbe powers in Berlin that she would protect the Christians in Turkey. She has not washed her hands of the stain of 100,000 victims In 1895, and she is not much concerned now. Is this pro tection an honoring of one's signature? What has a helpless child to do with politics that it must die because Ger many approves the sultan's actions for Bagdad Railroad concessions; or be cause England and Russia cannot agree who shall take the best piece of old Turkey? I do not wish to be misunderstood as a war agitator, for my most worthy teacher, the late Dr. Samuel J. Bar rows, who has been my guardian since childhood, was a peace advocate. Yet Is it not time for America to step into this matter or at least protect the hon or of the stars and stripes which are flying on many houses throughout Turkey? DR. D. 1. TRECARTIN DEFENDS ADJ. GEN. COLE Response Called Forth by Criticism Di reded at Gen. Cole by Major Boodreo, Editor Farmer: Dear Sir An article on vaccination signed by Major Thomas Boudren ap peared' in your issue of May 24th in which the writer stated "I hardly think Adj. Gen. Cole gave much thought to his subject when he Issued that order (on vaccination) or he never would have done It. No doubt the Surgeon General who prompted this order Is a great man m. the profession and his opinion on such matters should not be questioned, taut unfortunately for this class of gentlemen there are some laymen who know a good deal more about this subject than, they do." I do not know what the personal views of Adj. Gen. Cole are upon the subject of vaccination, taut his orders relative to the same for the Naval Militia must be based upon the U. S Navy Regulations and1 in these It is provided in sections 1133 and 1134 that recruits shall be Immediately vaccinat ed and in case of failure, the opera tion shall be repeated until the medi cal officer is convinced that the per son is protected. Although Major Boudren may be sin cere in his an ti -vaccination crusade. he Is not justified in attacking Adj. Oen. Cole for his orders on the sub ject. The only course open to the Ma jor would be te have the Navy Depart ment change the regulations applying to vaccination. DAVID ' M. TRECARTIN, Surgeon Naval Militia, C. N. G.

CURED ITCHING PAINFUL HUMOR Which had Spread Over Face, Body and Arms Swellings were as Large as a Dollar When they Broke, Sores would Not Heal Suffered 3 Years. MADE SOUND AND WELL BY 3 SETS OF CUTICURA "My trouble began about three years ago with little black swellings scattered over my face and neck. They would disappear but they would leave little black scars that would itch at times so I couldn't keep from scratching them. Larger swellings would appear in the same place and they were so painful I could hardly bear it and my clothes would stick to the sores.' The first doctor I went to said tbe disease was scrofula, but the trouble only got worse and spread. By this time it was all over my arms and the upper part of my body in big swellings as large as a dollar. It was so painful that I could not bear to lie on my back at night. The second doctor pronounced my disease inflam mation of the lymphatic glands. He stopped the swellings, but when they would break the places would not heal. He tried everything that he could but to no effect. He said I might be cured but it would take a long time. I bought a set of the Cuticura Remedies and used them according to directions and in less than a week some of the places were nearly well. I continued with the Cuti cura Remedies until I had used three sets, and now I am sound and well. The disease lasted three years from the time it commenced until I was cured. Before Christmas something broke out on my seven year old brother's hands in the form of large sores. I tried every thing I could think of but to no effect until I happened to think of Cuticura and one application cured him. Also, not long ago,, my sister got a bad burn on her ankle. I have been using Cuti cura on that and it gave her scarcely any trouble. O. Li. Wilson, Puryear, Tenn., Feb. 8, 1908."
