PRICE TWO CENTS. DONAHUE CENTER OF LABOR STORM Brunnell Characterises State Federation's President as Grossly Careless and Incompetent. ! LEADER ANSWERS ATTACK In Address Full of Ginger W Hurls . Defiance at Opponents and Bouses Delegates to En " . thuslasm. SUES EX-WARDEN West PECK Alleges Bridgeport, Jan. 16- President Charles J. Donahue ot the Connecticut Federation of Labor, at this after noon's session of Its convention, was called upon to defend, himself against a personal attack made upon him by Emil Brunnell of the Hartford Central Labor union, who Questioned his com petency, characterized him as grossly careless and asked the delegates to turn him out of office for the good of the organization. President Donahue, after the con vention had had a very warm debate of more than two hours, during which he was praised by some and con demned by others, arose in his own defense and In an address full of gin ger and of defiance to his opponents he apparently won the approbation of a majority of the delegates, whom he roused to great enthusiasm. It was one of the most notable contests that the Federation has ever had. The delegates went into session at 1:30 o'clock, expecting to be able to reach the election of officers In a very short time.', A report was received from the committee on officers' reports, in which the annual message of President Donahue, read the previous day, was 3-j commented -upon favorably, and Fres- ki ldent Donahue referred to as the best k legislative asent that the Federation i ever had. Upon the acceptance of this fi report, the entire afternoon was con ; suined and the body adjourned at 4:30 p. m., after voting to elect officers to )l morrow morning. Even then the re- port of. the offtcers'committee was not accepted in full," "sections having been left for future consideration. " Delegate Brunnell of Hartford spoke for more than half an hour on the l report. He attacked President Dona "V hue as legislative agent and read from ? the records of the preceding conven '& tlon 'in adopting , four measures and or&ringtihk "pesehtatlon of bills on the subjects in the legislature of that year. They were the employers' lta I toility act, trial by jury in damage fcases, modification of the conspiracy '' law, and the legalizing of union but , tons and punishmet for their us a by ( l unauthorised persons. He accused Mr. , 'Dnahueof.'pelng grossly careless and incompetent and the worst instead of the best legislative agent the Federa tion has ever had. Delegate Crosby of New Haven said that with all the shortcomings of the .president he had succeeded in gather ting around him as fine a set of dele gates as the convention ever hid and ha for one did not consider him a ?flat failure, but the most progressive. brightest and most capaoie man tnai 'ever occupied the place. President Donahue took the floor t.twidii' attmr there had heen a ereat 'Vdeal of discussion, and in the course of ;Ul' AUU4 CoD 41"D "I was the first president of this or ganization to brine to its attention the ijirnenace and unfair features of the ('.conspiracy law, We have tried to get I . modification of It for the past three 4'eafs. Last year we had two hear ings. I was Informed by members of :ih4j committee that had it under con Ssiideratlon that there ,was no posible ijhance of getting it through and that vthe best thing to do was to bring some '"of the employers under the pale of it -Xand then we would have no trouble tin geting the modification. I have re tJportfed and recommended that the ef fcfect of this law be directed against Ahose which it seems to favor. !:-" Of the four measures that you voted 14. yearago to have submitted to the legislature, two of them trial by jury and the legalizing of union buttons i -are laws to-day, and why the other ' "two have not become laws you Udow. -Sxo Interest at Hartford gets all the ff legislation It seeks. v "I want to say in regard to the em- sployer3 liability act that had you want ed an act in name only you could have Jhad It, but if you wanted an effective &w the best course has been pursued. ",I am a mamber of a commission ap- , y-ointed by Governor Woodruff to take iip this matter and knowing that it ' would be useless to try to get an ef fective act passed, we waited for the purpose of educating the various locals jjnn the extent of this measure, let them ..iecide whether they wanted a law like "he English Compensation Law or a .'.ability act. Then, when they decided -lo send their representatives to Hart- f ord and make a strong fight for it. "Gentlemen, if my motives as your legislative agent do not commend themselves to you, the remedy is your hands."

Haven Druggist Wander. Former Warden James H. Peck, of West Haven, was the defendant in a suit on trial in the superior court, civil side, yesterday afternoon, before Judge George W. Wheeler and a jury. The plaintiff was William H. BecK with, a druggist who conducts a store at First avenue and Elm street, West Haven. It la a suit in which slander is alleged and damages of $2,000 are claimed. It is alleged that Peck said in the presence of witnesses that Beek with was crazy. Peck denies that he made any such statement. Beckwith, his wife, and James Gard ner, who is employed by Beckwith, testified yesterday that Peck made the utterance attributed to him. Another witness for the plaintiff is Durham Babcock, but he was not in court as he is 111. Attorney Edwin E. Thomas, who is counsel for Peck, after the three wit nesses had been heard, moved . for a non-suit on the ground that the plain tilt had not made out a prima facie case. Attorney Hamilton, counsel for Beckwith, opposed the motion vlgoi ously and Judge Wheeler took the mat ter under advisement till to-morrow morning. TRIED TO PASS A FORGED CHECK Demand for $380 Signed Bruno Schubert Presented at Yale National "i " Bank. CASHIER IS SUSPICIOUS Applicant Makes Good His Escape While un Investigation is Being Made Over the Wire. X DINNER TO LOUIS UNDER, Proprietor of Mory's Dined by Mem bers of Knights of St. Patrick. At the clubhouse of the Knights 6f St. Patrick last night twenty-five members tendered a complimentary banquet to Louis Linder, the proprie tor of Mory's. Mr. Linder, who spends most of his time at his orange planta tion in the West Indies, is a good friend of the Knights of St. Patrick, and last night was presented by them with a handsome picture of all the Yale buildings. Louis responded with a few choice words of appreciation and offered his hosts the freedom of his resort at any time. At the dinner he was attended by his old-time friend and companion, Ralph Kinney, the football player. The party, which was entirely infor mal, did not break up until the early hours of the morning. Louis will hang the picture of the.Yale buildings with his other art treasures in the gallery at Mory's. NOT FOR HUGHES New York Republican County Committee Again Pails to Endorse Him. OPPONENTS EVADE ' ISSUE Debate Characterized by Bittpr ' In vectives and Frequent In- ""i" , , terruptlons. A clever attempt to pass a forged check was made at the Tale National bank . yesterday afternoon. . when a good looking man of medium build passed over the counter a check for $380 signed apparently by Bruno Schubert of 1015 State street, agent for Fred Oppenheim, and asked to have the check cashed. With the check he presented a letter purporting to be from Mr. Schubert which read: Yale National bank: Dear sirs: Enclosed you will please find check for $380, which you will kindly cash for bearer, and oblige, . . BRUNO SCHUBERT. The writing was almost exactly like that of Mr. Schubert, and the signa ture would have passed for his any where. 1 The amount of the check and the fact that the man who wanted it cashed was unknown led the bank of ficials to Investigate. The teller called up Mr. Schubert on the telephone, but before he could get him, he turned around and dis covered that the man was gone. The police were , Immediately Informed, but the former holder of the check had disappeared. Conversation was later held with Mr. Schubert and he said that he had Issued no such check or written such a note. . As both were dated January 16 they were apparently written yes terday. The people connected with the bank say that they never saw the man before, and have turned over the check and the note to the detective department. New York, Jan. 16. An attempt to force consideration 6f the tabled reso lution endorsing Governor Hughes for the republican nomination for presi dent was defeated to-night at what was probably the stormiest session In the political history of the New York Republican county committee. After nearly three hours of debate character ized by bitter invectives and frequently drowned down by cheers, hisses and cat calls, an adjournment for one month was taken with nothing more, than routine business having been transacted. , A vote on the straight question of endorsing Governor Hughes or any other presidential candidate was never reached, the time of the committee be Ing taken up with appeals from the ruling of the chair and other minor issues. There was 'no doubt of the veiled issue, however, and the out spoken supporters of the governor lined squarely against those who are either friendly to the candidacy of Secretary Taft or opposed to any endorsement by the committee at this time, i At its meeting In December the county committee tabled a resolution endorsing Governor Hughes as a can didate before the republican national convention. It was then understood that while its opponents believed the launching of the governor's candidacy if not ill-advised is at least premature, that definite disposition of the resolu tion would be made to-night. Preced ing the session this evening however, the executive committee met and a line up showed an opposition to Governor Hughes of 22 to 13 in the sub-committee. CENTERVILLE MEETING Dr. Peter Roberts to Address Session To-night.

While the exceptions were regarded as Important questions by the govern ment lawyers 'Who- wer investigating the reorganization of the Chicago, & Alton railroad, they constituted only a small proportion of those which Harrl man refused, to answer' The clash between the witness and the eortimlsslen arose on February 25 of last year. For several days the in vestigators hil, be endeavoring to get at the bottjm of ,Mr. Harrtman's transactions relative to the Chicago A Alton. The question which marked the beginning of the controversy ' Was this: "Did you own any of th Chicago A Alton preferred otock sold by the syn dicate to the Union Pacific?" Immediately Mr Harrlnian's lawyer, John G. Mllburn, contended that the Inquiry was not. within the scope of the federal investigation. Frank B. Kellogg, the government's attorney, took the contrary view. The outcome, after prolonged "argununts, was that Mr. Harriman declined to answer a number of questlcns ai to stock deal ings on the ground of personal privilege.

The officers of the Connecticut So ciety of Civil Engineers met at City hall last night to appoint a committee and make plans for their annual meet ing and banquet which will take pi ice on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 11 and 12. The following committee of arrangements wag appointed: Clarence Blakeslee, Frederick .1. Ea terbrook, Charles A. Ferry, Albert B. Hill, J. Frederick Jackson, Henry J. Kellogg, Casslus W. Kelly, Edward E. Minor, Charles H. Nichols, John fc. Punderford, E'.i M. T. Ryder, A. Wil liam Sperry, George E. Verrlll, John C. Tracy,. W. T. Sperry, and D. B. Brine made. . At the Convention there will be a bus iness meeting on the morning of the 11th at North Sheffield ha.!!. Lunch will be provided for the visitors by the local engineers, and then the Ham mond laboratory will be visited. At fi:30" the banquet will take place at Heublein's cafe. On Wednesday morning there will be a discussion ot various papers and In the afternoon many of the places of interest will be visited.. In former years this meeting has been a most enjoyable affair to all pre sent and no effort will ba spared by the committee to make this one a greater success than any before. City . Engineer . Kelly made another Ineffectual effort before the board of finance last night to have his salary raised. He hall been explaining to the board the need of providing money for the employment of another transitman for his department, and before he wont away he referred to the proposal tnat his salary be increased. After he had made a short statement. Mayor Martin told him that the board of finance had decided it had nothing further to do with the matter of the increase of his salary up to the present time. The city engineer, last fall, before the estimates wera madcup, asked for an increase of salary from $2,500 to $1,100. The aldermen voted to allow him $3,000. The question then went to the board of finance. This board cut down the allowance in their estimates to $2,750. Subsequently the estimates were adapt ed .by the aldermen as a whole, but It seems that proper procedure had not been followed in order to give th6 city engineer an increase. Under the so called Home Rule act of the last leg islature It is provided that In order to raise the salary of a city official, there shall ba concurrent action by the ald ermen and members of the board of finance, and that the aldermen by a two-thirds vote shall take separate ac tion, In the city engineer's case there was not concurrent action except as to the estimates in bulk, and so the finan ciers have held that Kelly cannot have his increase. . ' In regard to the extra transitman it appeared that the board of finance In making up the estimates last fall. In tended to provide for two extra transit men In the engineering bureau. Through a misunderstanding they pro vided $S87 for one man only. The city engineer now asks for $887 for another man.,. . ..; ;' , Before the financiers last night Mr. Kelly stated that the work of h! de partment has been running behind for some time. The engineers, he said, had not made up maps for assessors as re quired by law, had not kept up 'with the park work, building line wo;K,' sewerVork tnd Street extension' wwk. An extra man,, hd sald was very much rreenod, and in fact he had bjen com pelled to temporarily employ an extra man.' ' ,' The. board voted to refer, the request to a speolal committee whose duty It shall be to investigate as to the needs of the. bureau and report to the next meeting of the board.t ; ? : The mayor appointed Messrs. Losan and Miller on this committee.. Among the bills approved by the fin anciers were those ordered by the su perior court, In relation to the afsess ment of damages on account of the extension of Humphrey street and the widening of Grand avenue. The bur eau of compensation awarded dam ages but the court, on an appeal, rais ed the figures as follows: Emma L. Rogers, from $2,930 to $3. SCO; Austin B. Fuller and Harriet B. Fuller, from $625 to $1,945; W. J. At water from $160 to $625; Michael J. Fox, from $600 to $880. No member of the board of education put in nn appearance regarding the request that tlie sum of $2,030 be added to the teachers' salaries increase lie count so that the teachers may be paid more as per arrangement, the increases to -begin on Seputember 1. Mayor Mar-1 tin said that Jam:s E. Wheeler, a member of the board of education, had telephoned him and asked that the matter go over for a week as he was ill and unable to appear last night. I The financiers signed a small cart toad of bills and seemed weary, a con dition of mood that was accentuated when J. Edmond Miller proposed clear ing up the matters that were on the table and have been lying there for weeks, months and years. The mayor said he had a business engagement and preferred to let the pigeon-holed 'matters rest in pjace and so the. Miller suggestion was dropped. Among the "tabled" matters is Di rector Foley's bill askln? the city to pay him $300 to settle, his counsel fees in ths suit brought against him by William E. Dunn, formerly deputy reg istrar of the Ninth ward. PEARCE GETS CUP Retiring Fire Commissioner is Honored. The members of the board of fire commissioners last night gave a com plimentary dinner at Heublein's to John H. Pearce, the retiring president of the board, and presented him with a handsome loving cup as a token of appreciation for the good feeling un der his administration of the past year. After the dinner the members of the board went by automobile to the various houses throughout the city and Inspected the apparatus. In each of the houses the men were ordered to make a hitch and In some of the places did it In record-breaking time. Besides the commissioners the party was made up of Chief Fancher, Su perintendent Grant, 1 Fire Marshal Gladwin, Clerk Metzger, Commissioner-elect Thomas C. Braden, and Com missioners A. H. Bullard and Strong of Bridgeport, both intimate friends of the retiring commissioner. ' , Mr. Pearce is very popular with the members of the board and officials of the department. Te affair last night was a surprise to him, and he was deeply affected by the feeling of his associates! for him' evidenced by the cup.

A sinking of the street, similar to the one which happened on Tork street a short time ag3, has occurred on Crown street, near Tork. The sinking on Tork was found to be caused by a faulty sewer connection. 'Whether the cause on Crown street is the same has not yet been learned, but Director Fo ley and Mr. Mulvey are sparing no ef fort! to And out. Though a broken sewer connection does not necessarily mean the sewers themselves ari poor, these particular; A movement is now on foot In Con necticut, and especially locally, for the organization of a state Harvard club made up . of graduates, of the great Cambridge institution of learning. While organization has not yet been effecte'd, a committee of five is now at work among the graduates of the uni versity residing: here to interest them In the movement. Another object of tne committee is to find out how many Harvard graduates now reside In Con necticut. The committee, which consists of these five members Mr. Hyde and At torney Williams, of Hartforii; Attor ney Harriman and Rev. James leWolf Perry, jr., of this city, and Louis Ber ry, of Bridgeport, is to repoit at a meeting, at which It is hoped io eftect organization, in February. No date Or place has yet been set for this meet ing. The idea of the Connecticut club originated with some of the graduates who are now members of the Connect icut Valley club, which includes cen tral Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, as well as part (Tf this state. The desire for a separate state club has ledt to the appointment of this committee,, which is hard at work on ways and means nnd the feasibility of the new organization. There is talk also of holding a ban quet when the club has been firmly organized. No headquarters is to be set. but meetings will be held at va rious places, as determined upon.
