Cnsliing has announced In the high school auditorium th" victory of the local high nine over R'ldgep.nt Saturday, after which be said that Manager Chandler bad cancelled bis. next, regular game, which wax scheduled with the W'esleyan fresh men. Manager Chandler cancelled this game on account of bl.i Inability to meet, the expenses of bringing the team to N"w Haven. The attendance at the games have been very small and not enough money was taken In at the gate fo defray expenses for the teams already played. Manager Chandler ye-terday raid that If alt those witnessing the game paid ad mission he would be able to Just ahotit clear hl.s pxpenres. Many of those present failed to pay, which fact has placed the management In poor finan cial standing. Tt Is too bad to think that a high s bool of about I, A0 pupils cannot support a baseball tam which ha been winning games steadi ly, and one that Is making a bee line for the initial place. As pr. Curdl ing vest, rday morning said: "A word to the wise ought to be snfllclent." A game has been feenred with n strong Westvllle aggregation In place of th" Wcslevan nin for Saturday after noon, and a fine game l.i expected when they meet at the Westvllle grounds. FAILURES FALL OFF April Statistics Show Boat Re port Since November of Last Year. IN NUMBER AND QUANTITY Manufacturing Liabilities- Alone Are Smaller Than Any Since Last duly. Commercial failures In the. 1'nlted Plates during April, according to Kta tlstlcs compiled by H ). Imn ti.-. Co., were I.Snii In number and JJ'i.HIG.tM in amount of defaulted liabilities. This Is the best monthly Mntement since last November, and the comparison Is still more favorable If the brokerage and other more or less nperulative concerns are emitted. Thus, the iniiiinfiicturliig nubilities iiio much smaller than In any month since Inst July, ami trading loss es Hro the lightest since November, and the Hggl'egate for these two clashes, which embrace (lie strictly commercial failures., Is more than $ 7.000.000 less than In any previous month this year. A large inerenso appears, of course, when (he figures urn compared with those of April, 1!o", when there were only 7!i!l defaults Involving f 1 1 ,0R2,a!ni. The various sub-dlvlslons compare as follows with the same month last year: Manufacturing defaults were 370 In number and $ 7 , 7 0 Ti , 1 ft In amount, against 21S faltureH Tor $r,,nr,n.S4 1 In the year 1 ! 0 7 ; trading failures were SfiS In number and $n,1Xe,(iH1 In amount against. 5 4 3 defaults for $3,45.281 a year ago; other commercial, Including brnkeiage, Insurance, etc., were 71 In number and $il,1xii,;:Rs In amount against 8R failures, for $ l,n:i(i,Bo4 last year. Of hanks, and other llduclary Institutions there were 12 suspensions for $2,037,541 against tlve similar failures last year, when the amount. Involved was $ii33.SOil. Aside from (lie few large speculative failures, partly due to the sudden change In the tendency of prices for securities, there Is much encourage ment In the April failure statistics. Business was exceedingly quiet last monlh, so that tho decreased mortality most be attributed to the fact that, the effn t of the panic last t'sll Is gradually wearing off, Hint the return to a normal money market make) Its possible for mercantile houses to secure aeromino dallon from Hie banks. Many of tho failures early this year were directly due to refusal of the hanks to make ordinary loans, although the borrowers bad amp's security, and have. In a good proportion of Hie larger failures at any rate, been able to resume, mid make set tlements in full. Hud It. not been for the sudden rise In prices of securities, which Is considered a, goo, sign hy those who believe that AVall street Is beginning to discount approaching Im provement In (lenepil business.

TWO ALREADY IDENTIFIED Man Held for Heath of Four In Re cent I'lro Suspected of Rplng ConnectPd With Murder of tho Others. La Porto, Ind., May . A possible solution of the Guineas farm mystery, which was deepened tn-day when four additional bodies were found In the barnyard, developed to-night, when evidence tending to show that the nine dismembered corpses unearthed yesterday and to-day had been shipped to La Torte, probably from Chicago, came to light. Testimony of the drayman who had carted the trunks nnd boxes to the Gulness home lent color to this supposition. The La Porte police also received Information that two trunks consigned to "Mrs. Hello Gulness, La Porte, Ind.," arp held In an express odlco In Chicago. Assistance of the Chicago police In unraveling the pu..le was sought at once. Two of the nine mutilated bodies wer IdcntlMcd this afternoon with reasonable certainly. Antone Olson, of Chicago, viewed the body supposed to bo that of Jennie Olson, sixteen years old, foster- daughter of Mrs. Guinea, and pronounced It to be that of bis daughter. A sister of the girl, Mrs. Leo olander, of Chicago, con firmed the father's Identification. Ask K. Helgeleln, whose Inquiries regarding bis niNsIng brother, An drew, led to the first discoveries on the death-haunted farm, became sure to-day that the largest and best pre served of the corpses la that of bis brother. Against this Identification, however, Is the result of nn autopsy performed on this body by Pr. .1. 11. Meyer, lie found conditions which, to bis mind, proved that the man per ished long after Andrew Helgeleln dis appeared last January. Pr. Meyer said that the body allowed evidence of having been In the ground less than two weeks. Ask Helgeleln, however, refused to be con lin ed by these find ings, nnd bis certainty led the coro ner to accept bin Identification for the present Roy Lampbere, who Is held on a charge of tlrst degree murder na a re sult of the lire that destroyed the Gulness home nnd caused the death of Mrs. Relle Gulness nnd her three children, gave no new evidence to. day, despite repealed questionings. Ralph W. Smith, prosecuting attorney, to-night asserted that a confession Is not necessary so far as Laniphere Is concerned. "We have evidence In the shape of letters connecting Lampbere with alleged murders nt the Gulness farm." be said. The exact nature of these letters was carefully guarded by Mr. Smith. Chicago, .'.lav (1. Mrs. Nellie Lar son, sister of Mrs. Gulness, said to day: "My sister was crji'.y for money. When she wan a girl she never seem ed to care fir a man for his own sake, but onlv for the luxuries he could give her. Hho frequently told me that she peyer would have lived with Max' Sor t iiton. her first biidiand, If be bad not made such a line home for her.

Henry, of Norristo'vn, Ga., writes to Mrs. I'inkhara: " I suffered untold miserv from fe male troubles. My doctor saicl an opera tion was the only chance I hnd, and I dreaded It utmost, as much as death. " One day 1 read how other women had been cured by Lydla R.

AUG THE GERMAN PLAY Successful Presentation of Komtesso Guckcrl at New Haven Theater. An Indeed rrniat kably artistic pro duction nt the thrce-acl German play, KomiiKse Guekerl was given al Hun nell's theater last i.lght under the aus pices of the Hamgirl Singing society. The ensemble which made up Hie cast, by Its splendid work won applause from even those crlil-s who have no good words for any ailing unless It be of the very best riualny. Plreclor II. Krat.er, who In advance predicted a f.iullle.ss play, didn't ex aggetntn In the b ast. Morris Ranmann as the royal bureau crat, and Mrs. Adeline peters, as his wife, and Mrs. Lydla Cross as their daughter, delivered their rolea In a very creditable manner. Mrs. Fllso Rnemer, as Knmlessn Guckcrl, Mr. Paul Zimmerman, ns tlio Russian general, Mr. A. Llnkenbnch as the royal bathing commissioner of Carlsbad, the famous watering place In ISIS; Mrs. Marie Gross, as Rosa; Mr. Frnest Koelbl, as Wenzel, and Mr. J. Goergen, as Iiauniann, could not hava been done better. , Mr. Krataer In Hie role of the love making soldier, by his faultless work won tho admiration of all. All of theni deserve the highest! praise. Flowers In profusion were presented to the ladles. The house was wi ll tilled, the lower floor l aving but few vacant seats. The same can be mid of the balcony. The curtain rose at 8:21, ringing down for the last time at 11:I!, The play Itself may appear great to somr, bat to New Haveners It cer tainly ser med a dry affair. The cast made a whole lot out of It. If the cast had not done so It would havo fallen flat. New Haveners certainly don't like this class pf plays.
