On November 7, he was going through Harrison on his way to Greenwich, but was early for his appointment, and so turned into the Hotel Harrison courtyard. With him was a wom an detective from New York. As he went around to the rear of the building he saw a shadow on -the curtain of a room that was brightly lighted that he thought was that of his wife. He went up the fire es cape and peered under the curtain that was raised a slight distance and saw his wife dressing and Boles sit ting on the bed. He saw the couple as they left the hotel and then as they drove down the street. He only saw her twice more, once in the lat ter part of December and when he went on December 3 with a man named Murray to get his clothes from his home. Mrs Bullard opened the door and after asking who Murray was, spoke insultingly of him. Bul lard then told her he was through with her and she told him she had not been a wife to him for more than two years. Officer John Dougherty of the po lice force of the town of Harrison, whose beat was around the railroad station, testified to seeing Mrs. Bul lard in Harrison several times and that he also saw Roles about the same numher of times and never one with out the other. He stated that the frequency of the visits occasioned much comment. u rs POULTRY. i Stewing Fowl 32c lb. Choice Fowl 40c and 42c lb. Roasting Chickens 42c lb.

STEAMER RUNS ASHORE NEAR NOVA SCOTI A Canadian Atlantic Port, June 13. The American steamship Alcor, 3, 500 tons, Captain Becker, formerly a Duiuh steamer, bound from a New' England port for a trans-Atlantic port, went ashore at a point on the southern coast of Nova Scbtia in a thick fog last night and is now breaking up, ac cording to word received by the Ma rine andl Fisheries Department today. The crew of 35 was saved, said the message, which came rrom tne iignt house keeper on an island near the ledge upon which the steamer standed. Five feet of water stood in the ship's engine room and she was rap idly separating. The prevailing wind, southerly, affords little or no chance of saving the ship, the lighthoust keeper reported. Dallas. Texas, June 13. Silliman Evans, a Texas newspaper man and former clerk in the American lega tion in Copenhagen, was still in jail here today pending completion of ar rangements for his release on bail on charges 4 smuggling.

Several undeliv ered letters addressed to governmen tal departments, said to have been found on top of the ibox, will be sent to "Washington. Evans, who went to Copenhagen last Decembier and who resigned only recently, denies all knowledge of the charges against him. A statement is sued y his counsel declares the box, which it says has never been opened, was given to him hy an associate in the legation r delivery in Washing ton; that it wais inadvertently checked to Texas with the rest of Evans' hag gage, and that it had not been deliv ered because of carelessness. Louis Geldbraun, 19, of 377 Grand street, who was arrested last night by Sergeant Watts on the charge of idling, was given until next Monday to find a job toy Judge Bartlett when arraigned in the city court today. If he fails to get work toy Monday he will have to go to jail. Goldforaun weighs 165 pounds and looks a husky young fellow hut ac cording to the police he has a good home with his mother and' has not bothered himself about working for the past six months. According to the police he is a free and easy sort of young fellow, but shows up rather badly in allowing his mother to work hard while he loafs aibout the city. The police said today that they have marked a large number of young men of the "gentlemen of leisure" class and if they refuse to hunt useful employment immediately they will be given a chance to work for Fairfield county.

Oomley, member of the firm of Comlev & Comley, and Miss Emilie Schwab, for a number of years assistant mana ger and secretary of S.

Kelleher of this city and Thomas A. Carroll of Torrlngton, will start for Atlanta, Ga., tomorrow with five Federal prisoners who are to be imprisoned in the penl tentlary there. The five are Charles Nygeres, Austrian, of this city; George Kowaisky of East Hartford: and John Kunz of New Britain, all accused of editlous utterances; and two drug users, George H. Monty, Norwich, and Peter Borcum, arrested In Providence. ALLIES BEATING HUNS IN GASSING Washington, June 13 The Allies now excel the Germans in gas war fare, Carl L. Alsberg, chief of the bureau of chemistry, told the senate agriculture committee today. They not only have more gas at their dis posal and are applying it more effec tvely than the Germans, he said, but in defensive warfare they have more Improved gas masks. The State Department announced that the reciprocal treaty with Eng land was signed June 3. It still must be ratified by the Senate. SPEECH WILL LEAD WORLD TO ERA OF PEACE Santiago, Chile, June 13 The frank declarations of President Wil son in his address to the Mexican edi tors Vill lead the world to an era of peace, says the Mereurlo In an edi torial' expressing approval of the president's words. "His words will result, also." the newspaper says, "in added prestige to all the nations on the American con tinent." It adds that the absolute truth of President Wilson's statement i3 prov ed by the fact that he proposes to de vote millions of American lives to serve the principles he enunciated. The president's statement which of fers security to all nations and de clares against changes in present frontiers is applauded without re-sery. ENEMY FORCE WHICH HAD CROSSED COULD NOT HOLD ADVANTAGE (Continued From Page One) affect the ' general situation. As the Germans are fighting against time this result is a distinct gain to the de fense. The Germans, it is true, made slight progress on their left toward Com piegne, from which, at Melicocq, they are now only five miles away, but as did the French on the other wing in the region of Hery. As the nature of the ground around Mery provides the French with ex Icellent gun positions behind hills from which they can pound at short range the road by which all supplies must pass to the German center in the thrust toward Compiegne, the French can claim an advantage on the day's operations, for they 'also stopped the German efforts south of the Aisne against the forest east of Villers Cotterets. London, June 13 British troops last night advanced their lines a short distance on the Flanders front, south east of Merrins, the war 1 office an nounced today. The French on this front likewise improved their posi tions near the Ridge wood. Prisoners were taken in both operations. "A successful daylight raid was carried out by us yesterday southeast of Arras," says the war office report. "Heavy casualties were inflicted on the enemy. One hostile trench mor tar was brought back to our lines and others were destroyed. During the night local operations were under taken by us successfully southwe3t of Merris and east of Dickebusch lake. "In the former sector our line has been advanced a short distance with little cost and a number of prisoners were taken. In the latter area the French troops improved their posi tions in the neighborhood ot the Ridge wood and captured 30 prison ers. The Germans at severe cost con tinue to push down the Matz valley where an abundance of small woods afford maximum protection for French machine guns and artillery, says Reu ter's correspondent at headquarters, telegraphing Wednesday. Further west the French have pursued their progress on the Mery plateau and have pushed the enemy off the east ern slope into the valley. DRAFT TREATY TAKEN UP BY COMMITTEE New Haven, June 13 A political state ticket plan under discussion here today is said to have been brought up at an informal conference in Hartford today. In brief it was to have a coalition ticket put before the voters by the Republican and Demo cratic state conventions in order that. as a war economy, there shall be no campaigning this fall and no unnes- sesary party political or state expense connected with the election. One idea put forward it is said was to have Gov. Holcomb renominated the second place go to a Democrat possi bly Mayor Fitzgerald of New Haven the Democrats to have another place, and Frank E. Healy of Windsor Locks, speaker of the House, to be nominee for attorney-general as agreeable to both sides. It is said that the Democrats who were among those discussing the plan were desir- Liis of having two congressional places It is understood that no definite way in which a coalition ticket could be put into the field was put forward. Inquiry here showed that several men had heard of the plan but could give no definite information. Washington, June 13. The Senate Foreign Affair Committee, at a special meeting today took up the revised Bri tish-American draft treaty which was signed on June 3 by Secretary Lansing and Lord Reading, the British ambas sador. The treaty as revised is un derstood to provide that the draft law shall not he applied to citizens of the respective countries who are exempt from the draft in their own countries. Thu Americans in Great Britain only betweeen the ages of 2 1 and 3 1 will be subject to draft and in this country only British citizens, including Canadi ans, within the; limits of the British draft, (between 18 and 45 may be drafted.

The entertainment program included a, trip to Lexington and Concord and then to Camp Devens. The "blue deviis" were received by Gov. Mc Call and the constitutional conven tion. Tonight they will visit local theatres and attend a concert by the Bston Symphony Orchestra. APPARENT THAT GERMANS HAVE BEEN CHECKED London, June 13, via Ottawa There is a growing tone of optimism in the English newspapers today as it becomes more apparent that the Germans have been checked. The Teutons certainly compelled the French to withdraw at the northern end of the salient on the right bank of the Oise, including Carpepont wood, but the French retain the long belt of territory north of the river Aisne and it is to threaten this from the rear that the Germans launched the new attack south of the Aisne on a very wide front. At the same time, it is pointed out by military critics, the Germans were balked in their efforts to reach Com peigne frontally and they hope to at tain their object by this outflanking attack. Compiegne still is 18 miles west of the new operations, with the forest of Compiegne intervening. HEARING IN CASE OF J. M. JACKMAN WAR STAMPS SALES War Savings Stamps totals for the day are $18,232.76 for the state -and $5,437.40 for the city. A SATISFYING SUMMER DRINK Horsford's Acid Phosphate A teaspoonful in Water, sweetened to taste, refreshing and beneficial. Counsel for John M. Jackman, Bartlett, Keeler and Conn, and Madi son G. Genterman, for the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Co. completed their arguments in the case of Jackman against the railroad this morning and Judge Donald Warner in the Superior court took the papers. Young Jackman was returning from Connecticut Agricultural College and was in a train wreck, sustained a broken leg and was in the hospital for 18 weeks. The point at law concerns the fath er's claim of the loss of the boy's ser vices. Being a minor the defendant claims that the boy was a liability and not an asset. The road is willing to pay the hospital expenses, the cost of his clothes and a few incidental expenses but not for the loss of services. The arrival of .1,000,000 Americans will not create the slightest alarm in Germany. They have it straight from Mr. Hindenburg that every American will turn tail and run the minute a Qrman says "Boo." POLICE UNABLE TO FIND CLUE TO DROWNED Up to a late hour this afternoon the body of the man found under A. W. Burritt Lumber company's dock in the Pequonnock river last evening has not been identified, but Captain Cronan, chief of the detective bureau emphatically denied that the dead man was in any way connected with the murder of the unidentified woman whose body was found last Monday morning. The body was that of -a. man ap parently 35 years of age and colored He was of the laboring type and to all appearances was employed as coal heaver. When found by Special Officer Matthew Beck, the body was under the dock and while in a. badly decomposed state was not beyond recognition. , According to Dr. S. M. Garlick, the medical examiner and Dr. Weis of the Emergency Hospital, who was called when the body was found, the man is white, but the police officials claim that the man is colored. The man was attired in a grey shirt, black trousers and heavy tan shoes, He wore no hat or coat and a search of the river bank failed to reveal either. The only thing which he wore which could in any way lead to his identification was a badly worn seal ring, but the monogram was so worn that it was impossible to make out the initials. The body was not marked in any way to indicate foul play and there is nothing to show that he committed suicide which leaves the other alterna tive, that of accidently falling into the water and either being under the in fluence of liquor or being unable to swim. NEILSON ENTERS SMITH COLLEGE AS PRESIDENT Northampton, Mass., June 13 Simplicity marked the orrangements for the inauguration of William Al lan Neilson as president of Smith col lege today.

McCall. TRAIN VICTIM WAS SHELTON RESIDENT This forenoon it was discovered by the police that the man who was kill ed by a freight train at the statio yesterday belonged in Shelton, and his body was claimed today by an un dertaker for shipment to his home. Medical Examiner Dr. S. M. Gar lick, stated that the man was badly mutilated and that his skull was frac tured. The left leg was severed from the body. The deceased was across the tracks from the station platform leaning against the fence. He apparently did not hear the approaching train until too late and when attempting to re gain the platform he was struck. The train was in charge of Engi neer John R, Caldwell and Conductor Charles Accot. It is believed that the deceased was a traveling salesman.
