ASSESSOR SHOCKED Bridgeport Man Files Sworn List in Order to Pay Mil- itary Tax. IT'S SPERRY'S BIRTHDAY Fifteen Thousand Americans and Aus tralian In firnnd Ilovlew. Melbourne, Thursday, Sept. 3. Fif teen thousand Americans and Austral ians took part In a grand review and parade to-day at Flemlngton. one of the western suburhs of the Mty. The weather was fine and great crowds of spectators were- massed on every hand to watch the evolutions. The reception which they gave the Amer ican marines and bluejackets ns ihey marched by was even more enthusias tic than that extended to their favor ites among the troops. This was Admiral Sperry's birthday and many congratulations were show ered on him by the American resi dents. The city of Melbourne com memorated the occasion by present ing him with a silver howl, bearing a suitable inscription. OWNER OF NO PROPERTY First Document of the Kind Ever Handed in, and Officials Have a Chill. I FATAL BURNING Hurtford Woman Found Xenrly Dead nt 1 Ionic. Hartford, Sept. 2. Mrs. Mary Fury of 95 Sheldon street was probably fat ally burned by her clothing catching fire from burning oil to-night and It Is not expected that she will recover. A 'Mrs. Allen living on the lower floor of the same block as Mrs. Fury was found lying on the floor of a room In the rear of her flat with an overturn ed lamp next to her and her hair on fire. A policeman waa notified and he put o'ut the fire In the woman's hair and threw the lamp out of a win dow. farewell' party Bridgeport, Sept. 2. Richard T. Crane, third vice-president of the Eaton, Cole & Burnham Co., uncon sclously won for himself this forenoon a unique distinction, that of being the first man , In the history of the city who filed a sworn list with the board of assessors for the scle pur pose of paying a military enrollnwnt tax. Mr. Crane was entirely unconcerned about the matter and was not aware of the fact that he was establishing precedent, which. If followed by the thousands of other young men In the rlty who are shirking a duty, would materially Increase the city's revenue from taxes. This Is the first day for the filing of property lists and Mr. Crane cme into the olfi.ee primarily to notify the as sessors that the automobile on which he paid taxes last year was not In his possession any longer, he having sold It. He talked with William V. Walsh nnd asked him If there were any other taxes for which he was liable. Mr. Walsh asked him If he owned any property, the amount of Jewelry he owned, household furniture, etc nnd the Inquiry disclosed the fact that Mr. Crane owned no taxable property. "The only thing left Is the military tax," said Mr. Walsh. "Am I liable for that?" asked Mr. Crane. Receiving an affirmative reply, he naked for a list and made It out, and the first document of Its kind to go on record In the assessors' office attracted no little attention there to-day. Only owners of taxable property pay either a military and poll rax for the reason that no effort has ever been made to enforce the law regarding per sonal taxes of non-prnperty owners. The tax collector will make out a bill later and 'Mr. Crane will pay $2 to the city yearly In the future. He Is a former resident of Chicago and the as sessors, after he left the office, threw verbal bouquets at the young manu facturer. Mayor Lee" was pleased when he heard of the. Incident. Dr. W. J.

With the withdrawal yesterday of At torney Matthew Heynolds from the contest for the democratic nomination for Judge of prnhate, there Is no one left In the field except Edwin S. Thom as of West. Haven. The city conven tion for the choice of delegates to the district convention will be held Fri day night, but the date of the other convention has not been settled. Mr. Thomas made no fight In the city wards, following promises made two years ago. In nearly all the wards the Thomus tlrket won. Mr. Reynold's statement follows; t "I announce my withdrawal from the probate fight and desire nothing further done In my Interests, Many things occurred during the campaign that I sincerely regret, In fact more than I regret my defeat. None of these Incidents, however, do I charge against Mr. Thomas. "To each of my friends who worked hard and honestly for my nomination, I offer my sincere thanks and grati tude. My successful opponent is now entitled to the undivided support of the democratic party and I trust every friend of mine will assist In placing him In the office. With the help of all his chances are excellent, and I wish him- success." ' Toledo, 0 Sept. 2. That Taft and Foraker aro politically together Is through the public admission of ooth Taft and Foraker here to-day, the po litical sensation of Ohio. Senator Foraker Is an avowed can didate for the United States senate to succeed himself and his services In the National campaign have been sought by National Chairman Hitchcock and the senator has promised to take the stump. This rapid composition of political differences, attested by enthusiastic expressions of singleness of purpose by each, makes a "story" In polities which contains all the elements and phases of the science. The conflicting ambitions of both principals, as attest ed by the pre-conventlon strife, has constituted not only the official record, but the general Impression In the pub lie mind, Both this record and Im pression were swept out of existence by the events of to-day and last night At a dinner given here last night by Charles T. Lewis, who Is the host of Judge Taft at the Middle Bass club, being president of the organization an Invitation was extended to Senator Foraker to remain In this city to-day and attend both the review of the pa rade of the O. A. K. in the stand! with Judge Taft and the reception to be given later by the Lincoln ftepubltcan club. When Senator Foraker left the dinner he was called on the long dis tance telephone from Chicago by Chairman Hitchcock' of the National committee and requested to open the republican campaign In Kansas. Sen ator Foraker has not as yet given his answer on this Invitation, but It Is stated to the National chairman that he would take part In the speaking program. Judge Taft said on this Journey that he knew of no arrangement whereby he was to meet Senator Foraker, nor did he know of any endeavors to effect such an arrangement. But the city of Toledo seemed to know all about It, and when after the candidate had been In his place only a few. minutes, carriage which headed the parade, stop ped in front of the stand and dls charged Its passengers, there was tremendous shout as the thousand who were within sight of the stand In the Immense stands adjoining and across the street,, caught sight of the senior senator, his colleague, Senator Dick, Governor Harris and Mayor Whltlock. Senator Foraker was the last of the little party to reach Judge Taft's side, but when he did and eac raised high his right hand, Taft saying, "Hello, Senator," and Foraker, "I am glad to see you, Judge," nnd then shook hands, long and heartily, and smiled decidedly cordially, there was a mighty shout from the crowd, then applause and then cheers. The two sat down to gether and remained In earnest con versatlon for more than an hour, Incl dentally together receiving the plaudits of the marching veterans. Before Judge Taft was allowed to de part on antomoblle ride which had been arranged for him, he consented to shake hands for twenty minutes with an enthusiastic throng. The ride ended at the Lyceum theatre at o'clock, where, when Mr. Taft had been cheered for a few minutes by an audi ence which filled the large playhouse, Senator Foraker made his appearance Ppeechmnklng began. Mr. Taft said "Your chairman has said that I have filled office for nearly twenty 'years al most without reward. As he did ! Senator Foraker whispered to me th there are some who would accept tli honor ort the terms." (Laughter.) "It Is a pleasure for me to be here with Senator Foraker," eontainued Mr. Taft, "because when Governor of Ohio he gave me really my, first chance, and took a good deal of risk In putting a man of twenty-nine on the bench nf the superior court of Cincinnati." (More applause.) "We are about to enter, or rather have entered, a grust oratorical cam paign. It is a pleasure to think In this presence that we are going to stand In the campaign shoulder to shoulder, with the full strength of the republican SARSFIELDS SECOND Have Fine Standing In State Mllltln Winter Tlans Made.
