The splendid suc cess -earned by the Italian troops in two days of fighting west of the Brenta river has been maintained at ail points and the area or newly oc cupied territory is ibeing organized . apidly without further effort by the ?nemy to regain his lost positions. As the Italian brigades that took art in the fighi.ing reassembled it de veloped that their losses were oom- naratively small, the aggregate being onsiderably less than the number of iiisoners taken from the enemy. But the enemy losses were extreme y heavy, as is shown by the number f dead left on the field and the re ports of prisoners. It is estimated that the total enemy loss without ounting tho prisoners taken by the Italians was between 5,000 and 6,000. The result of the action is having an effect on the morale of tho enemy, land used last year for primed open grown tobacco. The statement pro vides, however, for hearings to be given to growers who might lose money already Invested through such restrictions and states that no restriction is placed on increases of less than five acres in "stalk" or "out" tobacco. The Council has appointed a com mittee consisting of John T. Roberts, Frank G. Macomber and Robbins B. Stoeckel to hear appeals from the decision. "On December 12, 1917, the Connec ticut Council of Defense adopted a resolution setting forth the position of the Council "in relation to enter prises and undertakings within the State not essential in the prosecution of the war or the furnishing of the necessaries of life or the maintenance of public interests." "In January 22, 1918, the Council, through a special committee, gave an opportunity to the tobacco growers of the state to inform the Council as to the effect of that resolution upon their industry, and to state their views in that connecion. "For the guidance of such growers, and to meet their just request for an interpretation of the said resolution so far as it applies to their industry. the Council hereby announces that : the said resolution, as applied to the ; Connecticut industry of producing to- j bacco, requires that "(1) No person, firm or corporation ' shall, in Connecticut, in the year 1918, , increase or cause to be increased th acreage controlled by him or it, of primed tobacco, whether of shade grown Havana seed or broad leaf to-' bacco, over the acreage of such to bacco grown or controlled by him or it in the year 1917 in Connecticut.

American and Can adian members of the international fishery conference resumed today hearings at which they endeavored to learn the attitude of New England fishermen toward proposed regula tions for the joint use of ports in both countries by men engaged in the in dustry. Dealers in this section pro tested yesterday against a plan which would permit Canadian vessels to land catches at American ports. They agreed that whilo this would increase the supply for home consumption, it would work a great hardship on New England fiishing interests.

Maltbie said to day in the Superior Court that he is not familiar enough with the action to pass upon a motion in the case of the State of Connecticut against Jos eph B. Morse, and others, and asked that the papers be filed with him. The motion was for a more specific state ment, and demurrer to the com plaint. Morse was trustee for the estate of the late Lucinda J. Ward, who died several years ago. He failed to file his accounting with the Pro bate Court under order of Judge Paul Li. Miller, and in 1916, was removed as trustee. Judge William H. Corn ley, Jr., was named in his stead. Morse appealed from the order, car rying the case to the Supreme Court, where the order was upheld. Despite the' failure of his appeal Morse still refuses to turn over the assets of the estate to his successor and the present action is a suit to recover on his bond, furnished by the United States Fidelity and Casualty Co. ineniee is 100 In the cure of bronchial coughs those distressing, harassing, hacking coughs that defy other medicines.

He said that the French government already had paid 2,000,000,000 francs to French hold ers of Russian bonds, thus favoring them over the holders in other coun tries of bonds whose coupons had not been paid since the beginning of the war. Finance Minister Kulotz replied that the financial actions taken in the name of Russia were independent of any changes in regime there. The Allies were discussing the question of the Russian coupons. Meanwhile, he said France would pay the February coupons as it had paid those falling due in January. The bill was passed by a vote of 360 to 117, the Socialists opposing the measure.

FARM HE BOUGHT SHRUNK, SUES TO GET BACK MONEY Claiming there was a false repre sentation as to the dimensions of a farm he purchased in New Milford, in 1911, Llewellyn Reece of Stamford has brought suit for $2,000 .damages against Anna Duncan of New Mil ford. He also asks that the note given in part payment be released and the mortgage cancalled. Reece claims he purchased th place, alleged to contain $4 acres, in March, 1911. It was largely wood land and brush, and he had no" occa sion to determine its boundaries until last year. Then he found that in stead of 81 acres it contained but 60 acres. " The price agreed upon for the farm was $5,300, part In cash, aud part in, notes secured by mortgage.
