Who Is the '-author of the measure does not appear, but the change sought has been the sub ject of some previous agitation - in which E. A. Pinkney was active. Sev eral years ago he obtained 1 a legal opinion to- the effect that the pres ent law required a 'Voting) place ,oa the, west side for all elections while the selectmen got from another law yer advice directly to ,the contrary. Prominent' Georgetown residents will oppose the present bill unless it is amended so' that' the r business session of the annual town meetings ' and the election ;of town officers shall be held on different' dates. Otherwise 'the business session which ' must be held at the town house would be ; likely to - have scanty ' representation ' on the part of west side' residents. A large part of the voting" population of Georgetown is composed of the Gilbert & Bennett employes arid it is urged that they should have the convenience, of a nearby voting-place because - few of them own teams. Be sides the Gilbert & Bennett shops do not usually close " for local elections. A- committee hearing upon the bill referred , to is assigned for next-Wednesday at Hartford; So far the "se lectmen have not made known' their attitude regarding the measure. , Had -not Norman Walker, deputy game warden at Ridogefield, been so hasty last - Thursday he might -have obtained evidence sufficient to justify his arrest - of Frank -De Marnno and Joseph , Defolip for ..the. hunting of rabbits out of season. The two men were 1n a fields at Branchville and be cause they carried guns Walker- as sumed . that they had unlawful de signs on rabbits ...tand took them in to .custody before they had fired a shot , or did any other overt act on which to .base ai prosecution. . Coun ty Warden Smith was -: called from Norwalk to , press ' the case and did not conceal .his, chagrin , over the deputy's :'. "previousness." . Defolio, when arrested, offered the officer $10 to let 'him go, and to avoid prose cution for this attempt, at bribery he' paid costs of $8.38. On the charge of illegal hunting the accused were ac- quitted. They claimed that ; they went out for a fox hunt, taking along a" dog trained for that sport and had no designs on Vrabbits. ; - While in- the wooded country be low his house one day last week Geo.

Two sessions of the board -of re lief, , the second ! occurring last Mon day, have been held without the ap pearance of a single applicant seek ing a reduction of tax valuation.
