" ' The bill has four sections, - the last two of which, it is asserted, are aimed at the natural growthers, ' who have access to certain oyster beds within Connecticut's jurisdiction, under cer tain -limitations. - Section 3 gives the shell fish com mission the power to lease under non assignable leases, any undesignated ground under their jurisdiction, for a period of not longer than 10 years. Section 4 gives the commission the right -of ;. preference in making the leases. - ." , According to natural growthers, their rights are despoiled by the bill and they will oppose its passage. They have been spending their small for tunes for years, they say, in obtaining a knowledge of the oyster business, and in buying boats and other equip ment, and they will be robbed of a livelihood by the "big fellows." A committee of three was appointed to interest the New Haven and Nor walk natural growthers in the fight. The natural beds included in the state's .jurisdiction under section 3214 of the General Statutes are: Cormell Reef Natural Bed off Port Chester; Port Chester Bed off Port Chester; Great Captain's Island Natural Bed off Greenwich; Field Point Natural Bed' oft Greenwich; Greenwich Point Natural Bed off Greenwich ; Fairfield Bar and Faairfield Natural, Beds off 1165 MAIN ST. 10 Rue St. Cecile, Paris.

T5 LIBERTY FITS MEN MILLIONAIRE JAILER Man YVho Says Wicked Cannot Be Salvaged Is No Christian, Declares Thomas Mott Osborne of Sing Sing "Democ racy is the Political Expression of Christianity" Drug Traffic Wiped Out of New York State Prison, He Says. The man who says the prisoner con- genitally wicked cannot be redeemed is no Christian, according- to Thomas Mott Osborne, warden of Sing Sing. Warden Osborne spoke before -3,000 persons yesterday afternoon at Poll's theater and created a tremendous im pression by his vifews on the method of trtating criminals in order to brins about their material and spiritual sal vation. Several minutes' applause , greeted Warden Osborne yesterday when he closed his interesting address with the following: . . ' "When you hear talk about the criminal, when your hear people say that these people cannot be redeemed; that it is a waste of time to fool with the prisoner; that it is a waste of time try to bring about a reformation , of these men who are congenitally wick ed; whenever you hear- a man say that, probe him deeply and you- will find he is no real Christian. "If he says that he is, Just' ask him to turn back the pages of- his New Testament and he will find' there that the Saviour himself was numbered among the transgressors. And was it by chance that the cross of Calvary stood between two other crosses and upon : those otner two crosses were hung two thieves ? And to. one of those thieves the' Saviour, in His. dying hourf said, 'Tonight we shall meet in para dise' ?" ' - - '; Concerning the use and dispensing of narcotics, for which Sing Sing was once notorious, he talked as follows: . "There have been times when drugs were very common in -Sing Sing. It was an open .scandal. Every bod knew it- Some of the officers would trade in drugs. The prisoners , them selves would trade in drugs, sell the means of damnation to their fellow prisoners. . . - "t , have made careful inquiry from those who have avenues of informa tion much better than I can get directly and I believe it to be true that at the present time Sing Sing is practically free from dope for the first time with in the memory of the present genera tion. If that is true, and I believe it to be true, it is a. most .wonderful thing that has happened in prison matters within the recollection of any- of us. It is almost a miracle. " ' The millionaire warden J told the audience at the theatre yesterday of the plan that is how in operation at Sing Sing. He told how the new sys tem is based on the certainty that a criminal is a. human, with human pos sibilities, human likes and dislikes and defects. . He said: . "It is not only a question of 'trust ing these men. 'The real principle at work there is the principle of respon- COUNCIL MAY HOT CONSIDER BRIDGE BOpitlGJUESTIpll Blatters Made Order of the Day Will Probably Be Laid On Table Although the proposition, to submit to the voters a referendum vote on bonding for $220,000 for Grand street bridge and $130,000 for a new Kast Washington avenue bridge were made the order of the day for the meet ing of the common council this even ing, it Is doubtful if either of these propositions will be taken up. There is a disposition on the part of the aldermen to put 'both matters off until the meeting of March 15 and a mo tion to this effect will doubtless pre vail ; . The streets and sidewalks com mittee will report favorably to the council the - plan to extend West Lib erty street through from Warren to Lafayette street to form a rather ir regular junction with Liberty street. The plan of the extension as outlined by the. city engineer proposes to take in most of the property of Fred D. Ives facing Warren street and that of S. W. and F. E. Beach, facing La fayette street. ', " The. plan , will be submitted with the favorable report of the committee the favorable report of the commit tee. It has been estimated that the extension will cost $12,000 but bene fits will toe charged against property owners in West' Liberty street and Liberty street ,as well. as along, the new street so that there will be no cost to the city. . Attorney Charles S. Canfield who owns property at Park avenue and West Liberty street recently declared at a public! hearing on the mat jr that he was willing to pay benefits and he thought every property owner in the vicinity should be assessed benefits. This plan has been worked out by the- streets and sidewalks committee. - The plans outlined by City Engi neer Terry to extend John street from Park avenue to Water street will be taken up at the meeting of the coun cil and there promises to be a lively discussion over the matter. There is considerable opposition to the exten sion across Main street 'nut most of the property owners at the west end of the street favor the extension to West avenue. Objects to Work On Sunday ; Pushed Down Stairs By Husband Because he pushed his wife down a flight of stairs after she had objected to his making repairs . to their house on Sunday, Nicholas - Brachak, 5S7 Bostwick avenue, was given this morn ing 20 days in the county jail upon charges of intoxication and assault. sibility. They have had many forms of so-called honor system, where the warden, who was a benevolent despot, but still a despot, has trusted his men and the men have repaid the trust which he placed in them; but at Sing Sing as well as at Auburn we are go ing a step far beyond that because we are placing the actual responsibility for their own affairs upon the men themselves. "It, is that which is bringing about these "wonderful results in Sing Sing. It is not what we are doing, it is what the men are doing because they have the responsibility. They preserve or der; they have their courts; they de cree what discipline shall be; they handle the discipline in the shops, "in the mess hall, marching back and forth; Sing Sing is, to a large extent a self-govering commonwealth to-day. "We are applying the great Demo cratic principle, the principle which underlies the whole social system of this country, the principle which makes this country what it is, the great democracy. We ' are here work ing out an experiment which was, in the beginning, an experiment. . It has been called "the great- experi ment." . , ''""'. , "It is the idea expressed by Glad stone in a letter to Morley that it is liberty alone that fits men for lib erty. ' It is only by the experience of being trusted and having your own sense of responsibility , that a man ever becomes a citizen that is worth the snap of your fingers. It is lib erty alone that fits men for liberty. "That is a sentence that ought to be written in letters of gold in every school-house in the ' land and above the entrance of every prison. "This meeting is - held under the auspices of a church society, as I un derstand it. Did you ever stop to think that the reason why democracy is the great principle In ; which we all believe is that it is the only social system which will stand upon the ap plication of the Golden Rule? Dem ocracy is nothing but. the political expression of Christianity. . It is real ly the doctrines of Jesus that we are trying to put into practical opera tion there in Sing Sing. "Many people hold that' Christian ity is a very good thing in theory but- it doesn't work in practice. How do you know? ',, - It has never been tried., . Let us try it. Whenever anyone honestly ' tries to be governed by the dictates of Christianity, .just so far as they succeed it is because of Christianity. Just so far as they really try to live according to the dic tates of - Jesus, just so far their lives can be made successful, and in no other way that I know, of." H3s daughter Susie testified, that- her father did not work for the last week or so and that her mother had ob jected, strenuously to Sunday work. The prisoner had otherwise abused her mother, the witness said. VIRELLI CATCHES MAM ACCUSED OF SHOOTING COCCHIO Fugitive, Who Fled After Riotous Game of "Morra," Walks Into Arms of Law Salvatore iDezenzo," for two weeks a fugitive from " justice following the shooting of John Cocchio, 87 Clarence street, in a fight over a game of "Morra" in Aurillio's saloon, Crescent avenue, a week ago Monday night, was captured this morning.
