are painfully hurt. Although Keasby
was quiet to-nlcht the citizens fear for
the morrow when th strikers threaten
to renew the attack on the plant of the

there has been rioting at Keasby and
a number of manufacturing tonus

CASE A COMPLICATED ONE
Pill lea thin Wns Made hi Connection
Mth $10,000 Suit Hronght on
Note I.,ucd lo Arthur
Horn's Widow.
After a contest in the probate court
that lamed about two hours yester
day afternoon Judge Studiey granted
the application made by Attorneys
Clark. Hall, peck and McLaren for
the appointment of an administrator
over the estate pf Arthur 0. Itoot,
"ho died on February 4, lSfui. Attor
ney Harry W. Atwater, of t V ofllce of
Clark. Hail, peck, A Mcliren, wai
appointed as administrator by the
court. The application was opposed
by White, Padgett Plake, on the
ground that the court could not exer
cise its discretion in appointing an
administrator on the estate of a man
who had been dead over twelve years,
The law provides that after ten years
the court my appoint an administra
tor, If asked for, If, hi his opinion
there is good cms for such appoint
ment, but the court Is not obliged,
after ten years, to name an adminis
trator, and th" opposition tried to
show that in this case there was not
suttlcient cans., for tile court to us.,
its discretion In the wav asked hv the
! applicant.
The application Is made by Clark,
Hall, Teek McParen In connection
with a suit which they are bringing
against on" Charles F. Hoot. In the
superior court. The suit Is for Pi.
ooa damages and the plaintiff In the
case Is Margaret powd Root, widow
of Arthur C. Hoof. The suit Is ha.ed
op two notes, one for JIl.ooi) ami tie
other for $1,500, which Mrs. Knot
claims Charles Ho.it gave to her after
the death of her husband. Charles
Hoot had beep sm-etv under bond of
lis.nort for William Moot, who had
been appointed guardian over Arthur
Hoot many years before, and said
William Root never, so far as t ie rrc-ord.-i
of the probnle court show, filed
any a.-connt of his guardianship,
j Ip looking up the ,-ase the atlor-
i ip ;.n found that previous to tlie notes
cneti tu the widow, after tip. death
of her husband, there ;id existed
three notes given by Charb-s Moot to
Arthur tioof, which had been cancel
led apparently to he replaced by the
notes given to (he widow. This put a
new face op the case and made It a
question whetaer or not the son of
Arthur an. I .Margaret pool, Henry,
who Is now sixteen years of ate,
wotdd not have an Interest in the
nols, and perhaps a greater interest
than hlf mother. In order t,, include

TO FIND WHO IS PLAINTIFF
Superior Court Couldn't Tell. So Judge
Ilotobklss Is Appointed to In
qulro Into the Novel Cnse.
Unable to ascertain from the evt
dence and pleadings who wns plaintiff
and who defendant In the case of
George F. Krlpps against James Fer
guson, or vlca versa. Judge Jtoblnson
took the case off the superior court,
chil side, calender and appointed B
committee of one, or more appropriate,
a referee to decide It. In this case, the
two both prefer claims for damages
and accounting against the other. They
were formerly partners, hence the dif
ficulty In ascertaining how to enter the
proceedings.
The two were formerly pnrtners en
gaged In the business of dealing In
horses, having their dace of business
In Commerce street. In September,
inofi, they dissolved partnership and
soon afterwards brought suit to ench
compel the other to account.
After vainly attempting to wade
through nil Intricate series of figures
presented by each side, the court ap
pointed Judge Hobart Hotchklss to de
cide who owed who and bow much, or
If nobody owed anybody. Fn'-h side
claim several thousand dollars from
the other. The recommendation of
Judge Hofchktss will probably be fol
lowed by the superior court when the
cnse s returned to It after the novel
hearing.
The first pnrt of the rase wns henrd
yesterday In the referee's rnoth In the
court house. It will he continued on
Monday.
The lawyers In the case are Attor
neys Harrlmnn did peers for Krlpps

Bridgeport, Nov. 2S. The nppearnnce
of Adcle Ritchie, the celebrated song
bird of the musical comedy stage, and
the additional attraction of the first

made things lively about the county
curt house this morning. Miss Ritchie,
who was handsomely gowned, Is a
friend of Mrs, Alice C, R, Pierce, the
beautiful New York girl, who claimed
she was forcibly detained In Dr. Mc
Fat'land's sanllnrlutn In Westport. Her

When she appeared In court Mrs.
Pierce was accompanied by n number
of friends, and it was one of those who

BIDS ON BERT1LL0N
Supplies Committee Will Open
Them at Headquarters
To-morrow.
DETECTIVES ARE TO MOVE
Twelve Front Feet of Patrolmen's
Hoom lo Be Given to Their
Work.
Bids are to be opened by the sup
plies committee of the benrd of police
commissioners to-morrow for the in
stalatlon of the Bertlllon system of
equipment, which the loenl department
will hnve in accordance with the ap
propriation made by the board ofdnance
this year. This means that In ft short
time the" Bertlllon system will become
a part of the New Nnvcn police sys
tem, as has already been done In sev
eral cities of the state. The Bertlllon
equipment Is to be Installed In the
present deteettvs headquarters which
will he strictly the Bertlllon room,
meaning thot the detectives are going
to move their home.
The new quarters for the detectives
hns nlready been picked. It will be
the forward pnrt of what Is now the
gneral patrolmen's quarters, where the
men spend their leisure time on what
Is known In police circles ns "repori."
The partitioning off nf this section of
the room will not mnke the patrolmen's
space, very much smaller than nt pres
ent, as It Is proposed to use only the
first twelve feet ef the room all the
way Across from wnll to wall. This
will make a considerably larger quar
ter for the detectives thnn at present
nnd a more Accessible and pleasant one,
ns there will be several large windows
ncross the front and the entrance,
which Is now closed, except on rare
occasions, will be opened so as to give
entrance right from the front door of
headquarters. The room will be wider
by several feet than the present and
nearly twlee as long.
This chsnge will prehahly be adver
tised fop bidding in n few days, so
that workmen be started soon after
the conclusion, of the ehunges In the
main qimrters of the department. Tn
order to Install the Bertlllon system
the detectives will hnve to get Into
their opw room so that the work wil
probably be started within a couple of
weeks.

HAMDEN CONSIDERED
New liile Field There Is Nothing More
Than a Possibility.
It may he Mated on the authority
of the members of the Yale alumni
athletic advisory committee that noth
ing otriclul or definite has been done
In regard to tho selection of a now
Yale Held. Most of tin.' talk In this
connection hns been caused simply
by the lack of accommoilal Ion on last
Saturday, and has little foundation.
Attorney Charles F. Clarke of llam
dep lias, however, made an offer of
thirty acres of land In Hamdeti, pear
the upper end of Pake Whitney, being
part of Die Hliliii 1 1 u in l.-don estate, ot
which he Is Ihe administrator, lie
has quoted a, price of $7.0011 on this
properly, and at toe request of M ,-,
Camp, lias furnished hlni with a ile.
mulled pi m of the ground, It Is un
derstood that this proposition will he
presented to Uie committee later, but
un'il then no dcilnlto action will be
taken.
ALL READY FOR
THANKSGIVING
That Is, AU But the Weather la
in tho Best of Trim' and
Ready to Do Justice
to the Day.
GOOD CHEER REACHES POOR
City's Guests to He Well Cnred for
Dut No One Cnn Eiijoy It All
Quite Like Llttlo
Willie.
An enterprising mi'thomatlclan
spent last evening trying to figure out!
by how much the weif.'ht of New Ha
vn' population will le Increased to
day If one firm In the city alone dis
posed of some eight' tons of the fowls
of the air. And meanwhile the festive;
turk exclaimed, "butchered to makei
a Roman holiday."
All the stores In the center report
ed last evening that their supply of
Thiitksglvlng edibles had been unus
ually well oleaned up, at prices Si
little below those of last year. So
little Willie will spend the mornintf.
In close proximity to the kitchen, an'
tlclpatlng In Its odors the glorloua
feast to come. Some of those of thai
older generation will attend church.
In the morning, but most of thos,
who do not stay at home will attend
oie of the numerous athletic events.
And then at noon the great even
will occur! Even tho crossest oil
bachelor uncle will confess that thera
Is really nothing quite like their feast
of all feasts.
So at noon all the family, with the;
visiting unoles and aunts, cousins and
brothers home for the holidays, will
sit down and start In on the real work
of the day which will occupy thenv
for the next 'two hours. Little Willi
will then sit down In peace and con
tentment he will be pretty sure to
sit down for a while at least, for ha
will be too full for violent exertion.
For the other members of the family
football, bowling and other " sports
will fill the afternoon.
In preparation for the day the rail
road company had Its hands full yes
terday in carrying those who were
going away for the holidays. There
will also be a somewhat heavy traf
fic this morning In bringing those
who get here Just In time for dinner.
As the weather will probably be
stormy, the trolley company does not
expect much business except In carry
ing those who are going to witness the
various athletic events.
For those who cannot get home for
the day, there will be a dinner at the
Y. M. C. and nt Pwlght hall those
Yale students who must remain in
town will be entertained.
Last evening In the center could be
seen those who were trying to da
all their buying In tho last few min
utes of grace. There could also be
seen those wiio were trying to do
secure a turkey for a quarter not
per pound, but per turkey, Those
centered about the cafes and pntlently
handed over one quarter after anoth- '
er, while some newcomer would win
on his first chance. Some patient
ones paid out four or five dollars in or
vain attempt to secure a two dollar
bird.
There were also little pigs to ba
had for the winning, but they were
not always to bo had for long. At
one Church street cafe, some lucky
ra filer won a little porker, which then
suddenly gave his possessors the slip
and ran out Into the cold world of
Church street. With a crowd after
him he threatened to beat Dorando'S
