The railroads fought through the courts, the final decision by the Inter-State Commerce Commission being handed dawn a few days ago. The two year period for some of the rates beyond which the commission may not prescribe rates, had expired before the decision. It was announced last week that all had expired but it was dis covered that one of them, one of 15 days, remained, and during that time the shippers will have the benefit of the order. The commission is of the opinion, however, that the railroads will be in a hurry to raise the rates again. HUSHES WILL PROBATED (Continued from first page) said he had known Matthew Hughes for about two years. 'The, elder Mr. Keating told the court that he had known the testator from 15 to 20 years and had drawn a will for him prior to. the coae. that, , was now offered for probate. About 7 the time that Mr. Hughes was being sued by his wife for non-support last Spring Mr. Hughes came to him 'and said he wanted to make an entire new will, and he had advised him not to while the litigation was in progress. When the time came for the making of the will, Mr. Keating said, he had cautioned Matthew that his relatives had more claim upon him than any one else. He said the testator re plied, "If my brother James was liv ing I would feel disposed to make provision for him. But he is dead arid his children are grown up and do not need any help. My brother, John, is well to do and as for the others I am under no obligation to them." Mr. Keating said that when Mr. Hughes had come to, himi to have the will drawn he had brought a memor andum with, him which bore the names of legatees with the amount written opposite each name that he desired to bequeath to the legatees. The sums mentioned in the will were the same as on the memorandum except for a few slight changes. In response to questions by Attorney Chamberlain, Mr. Keating said that he did not know who wrote the memoran dum, he did not recognize the writing and he did not ask who had written it. The memorandum had been de stroyed after the will was drafted .and at no time did Mr. Hughes tell him who had written the memorandum. When asked if Matthew Hughes had ever estimated the amount of money he had left to the church, Mr. Keating said he had mentioned what his real estate was listed at on the books of the assessors, and had apparently summed up the amount that the par ish as residuary legateee would re ceive. Mr. Keating testified that the testa tor after signing the will had taken it away with him, saying that he wanted to look it over. He brought it back after a week and said it was all right. Mr. Keating said he had never looked at the document again until after it was read following the funeral of the deceased. Mr. Chamberlain wanted to know if Mr. Keating had noticed any change in the condition of Mr. Hughes. He replied that there had been a gradual change in his physical appearance, that he was growing old and appeared more feeble. Asked if he noticed that the testa tor was very hard of hearing, Mr. Keating said he had sat very close to him while doing business for him and that he had not been obliged to use more than a normal tone of voice to be readily understood. Mr. CVHara cross-examined Mr. Keating without bringing out any new facts. The heirs have 30 days in which to bring their appeal before the Superior court. Attorney Judson asked the court if John Hughes, one of the executors of the will, who is one of the contesting heirs, was going to be allowed to qual ify as an executor in as much as he was opposed to the will. Judge Nobbs said that there was no reason why he could not qualify as an executor as the court knew of no opposition to the will. Mr. Judson said that he did not be lieve John Hughes should qualify if he was going to be an opponent of the will: -.- GERMAN AVIATOR HAS FATAL FALL.

CHANDLER LOUD IN PRAISE OF JUDGE BALDWIN "Judge Baldwin is an honorable man and a able and learned judge," was the wGrst that George B. Chand ler of Rocky Hill could say about the Democratic candidate for gover nor in his noon day speech at the plant of the Locomobile Co, of Amer ica this noon. This endorse ment of the Democratic candidate was accented ' by the workingmen "gathered about as one of the best arguments that could , be advanced in favor of the former chief justice of Connecticut. Mr. Chandler spent most of hio time talking on the fellow servant law and the workingman's compensa tion act'and when he bad finished he said that both the Democratic and Republican parties were advocating the workingman's compensation act, but that he wanted to tell-them that "Cousin Charlie" Goodwin was & good fellow and would see that the work ingmen of the state got all that was coming to them. He told how Good win was the man who had been sec retary to the late George L. Lilley and was the Moses who was going to lead them out of the corporation-ridden wilderness. There are over 1.20P men employ ed at the factory and the Republican workers who accompanied Mr. Chand ler estimated that 400 listened to the speaker. There were several card games go ing on in the nearby garages while th5 speechmaking was going on, and the workingmen continued to play the gam without paying any attention to the spell bindher. In no part of his speech, which . Is the same , that rfhe made at the Singer plant yesterday, does Mr. Chandler say anything about any other candidate than Goodwin. He does not try to excuse the Repub lican party for putting ; a Sta,te tax upon' the people or he does not tell why the "Republican party failed to pass the public utilities bill at its last session, nor did he tell of the scan dalous last days of the last General Assembly. ' ' He accused Judge Baldwin of talk ing up: State rights too much and took issue with the judge because he had written that opinion relative to the Federal Employers' liability act in which the court found that the cen tral government had no right to over ride the constitutional rights of the State. . He failed to tell his hearers that Judge Baldwin favored an Employers' Liability act that will be effective in the State of Connecticut, and that the Republican party which has been in control of the State for 16 years had failed to provide such a measure. He closed by saying that Charlie Goodwin a.nd his cousin, Walter, of Hartford, were friends of the men in overalls even though they were rich men; The crowd was an orderly one and the only sign of applause was hand clapping from about a score of the listeners at the close of the speech.

TRAINED STORK'S MISTAKE PROVES EMBARRASSING Vlttoria Pasqueriello, a midwife with a thriving trade in the Italian colony in North Bridgeport, has been spending the better part of the last four days in reproving her trained stork, which made a decidedly bad break and left the levatrlce in trou ble with one of her patrons. Dominie Corsa, a stalwart young laborer living at 326 North Washing ton avenue, contracted with Mrs. Pas queriello, to send her stork to his home several months hence. Mrs. Corsa came here from Italy only a couple of months ago. Her husband had been here two years. But through some fault either of the stork or of the midwife, the inde fatigable bird stretched his long legs towards the Corsa home the latter part of last -week. . . .; . -. ' Mr. Corsa looked with disfavor up on the little son, and Mrs. Corsa by a strange perversion of maternal in stinct had an equally strong dislikn for the youngster. Mrs. Pasqueriello realized that under such conditions the child could not thrive, and took it to the shelter of her own domicile, 1391 Main street, hoping that time would soften the mother towards the child. Corsa however declared . that i Mrs. Corsa wished to share his for tunes the baby could not return, an3 both agreed that henceforth the child would be persona nan grata. Mid wife Pasqueriello . took the child back to the mother this noon, and then hastened to the Charities department to tell Supt Brennan that if the child was not cared for, he would perish. Mr. . Brennan detailed . Investigator Morrissey to effect if possible a cessa tion of hostilities the prospects for Which looked bright at press hour. LICENSE VOTE NOT COMING UP THIS ELECTION It was learned today that the No License committee has not a suffi cient number of names to have the license question submitted to the vot ers at the next election. The City Attorney has been asked for an opin ion concerning which voting list that shall be used in reckoning the ten per cent ratio that is required to have the vote submitted to the peo ple. The law states that the petition containing ten per cen of the names on the voting list shall be filed with the town clerk twenty days before election. The Town clerk has asked the City Attorney for an opinion as to which list to reckon with, that of last year which was the only list in existence when the petition was cir culated, or the list now being prepar ed by the registrars. It is learned today on good authority that no mat ter which way the City Attorney de cides, the no-license petition does not bear ten per cent of the names on either list. Many names were re moved from the petition because they were minors who had not yet become electors. It Is evident that those in favor of a dry city will not have a chance to disapprove of the existing conditions at the next election. Bakery Workers Hold 1 Meeting for Purpose" of Forming a Union Bakery Workers' Union, No. 38, of Bridgeport held a well attended mass meeting Saturday at Carpenter's hail, Mr Heckler being elected chairman and T.

Iffland, general organizer, addressed the gathering in German and Eng lish.

Rogers know the hornets' nest he was stirring up when in a drunken sort of way he walked up to Patrolman Ed McCarthy, who was standing in citizens' clothes at Broadt and John streets last even ing, and demanded the price of a drink. Rogers is a fireman, and when he is sober, is regarded as a fairly indus trious man. His permanent address is a lodging house at 559 Water street. McCarthy advised Rogers to go home and sleep off his Jag. whereat .Rogers took violent offence and threatened to beat McCarthy. McCarthy disclosed his identity as a policeman and again told Rogers to go home. "I don't care if you're half a dozen policemen," shouted Rogers, attract ing a number of pedestrians and squar ing off at McCarthy. Then McCarthy just had to arrest him. A couple ot hundred pedestrians had gathered when the patrol wagon arrived .with a half dozen cops. Patrolmen Greg ory, Larkin, Ladd and others were the pall bearers for Rogers who proved himself a most lively corpse. Breach of the peace, drunkenness, re sistance to an officer and vagrancy were the charges against Rogers, and today Judge Wilder sentenced him to 60 days in Jail and imposed fines ag gregating $75 and costs.
