THE STATEMENT OF MR SUEEHAN. A real estate transaction has recently taken place in Newtown, which is to go to tbu courts for a tlnal settlement. The principals in the case are John T. Sheeban, the blacksmith on West street, and Tailor Snatrom, a Swedish citizen, who for some years has owned the old Redstone property, Including the black smith shop occupied by Sheehan at the foot of West street. SasCrom's story is substantially as follows: On May 6, while under the Influence of liquor, be signed a quit claim deed, conveying his property to Sbeehan, for the sum of $25, a 90 and a $5 bill being given him. He had had a racket at home aud bis ambi tion seemed to be to get out of town as quickly as possible. According to his story he supposed he had simply bor rowed a sum of money on his place, and was overcome' with surprise when a friend wrote to New Y'ork to ask If he had sold his property. Taking the first train he hurried to Newtown, and learn ing the condition of affairs placed the case In the hands ul Attorney William J. Botcher. The place, it appears, cost Sustrora t'J73, on which he has paid 8175. He has made Improvements to the value of .JIK), and it now stands him in at $1173. On Tuesday Judge O"orge Wheeler signed an injunction restraining Sheehan from selling the property. In the peti tion, Sastrom, through his attorney, asks to have Sheehan restrained from selling the place, for a re-conveyance and for fl,(KX) damages. Papers were served on Sheehan on Tuesday by Sheriff Uodgers. Mr Sheehan when approached by a re porter on Thursday, declined to be Inter viewed. He stated, however, that he bought the Sastrom property and In tended to hold it. A Grange Visitation.

Daniel Uonan, the faithful and efflc kct right band man of Dr Smith, Is passing a week's vacation In Bridgeport Mr Leavey's Statement. In the article relating to the cutting of the guys at the Rubber shop by Matthew Leavey, which appeared In last week's Bee, Mr Leavey states that In part they were false and we cheerfully give space to his version of the facts. Mr Leavey states that the statement that it was understood that permission was given by the owner when the guys were first put in position is wrong. About two years ago, when the guys were first put up, Matthew Leavey, Jr., employed at the Rubber factory, acting under instructions from bis father who owned the property at the time, called In the ofllce of the Rubber Company and told Superlntenddnt Sloane that before putting the guys on his father's land be had better see him about the matter. The superintendent wanted Mr Leavey, Sr., to come and see him but as he was at home sick he could not go. His fur ther statement Is that Mr Sloane, who has the reputation of not always being a gentleman to the men In bis employ, treated him with great contempt, threat ening him with discharge if further trouble was made over thematter. But Mr Leavey wished his father's rights protected and though be tried often to get a settlement he was always treated with the same haughty demeanor and was finally discharged from the employ of the company. Matthew Leavey, Sr., died shortly after and last December the matter was placed in the hands of Attor ney C. H. Northrop, who wrote General Manager Blanchard at New York who said he would be at Sandy Hook in a few days and settle up the affair. This was not done and Mr Leavey, believing he could not get any satisfaction from the company's representative here and scant courtesy from the New York end of the business, consulted his attorney and cut the guys as before stated. Mr Leavey states that he offered to lease the privi lege of fastening the 'guys on the land for $10 yearly rental, after the demand of $50 for the time of occupancy without leave was satisfied. He never changed bis offer or withdrew it and it is still open. The company refused to pay what be considered a reasonable Bum for their unauthorized occupancy of the premises for nearly two years and they wanted a term lease of the premises for 10 years, which he refused to give. Mr Leavey states the above facts are correct and be can substantiate them. ' LAKE QOASSAPADG IN MIDDLEBDET. Among the popular and best liked ho tels and picnic resorts of this sec. ion is the Wallace house and picnic grounds at Lake Quassanauir In Middleburv. Mr Wallace has gotten bis buildings in fine order for the season and never was in better shape to entertain the public. The hotel itself is modern and the grounds are pleasant. There are grounds for picnic pa.-ties near the hotel, making it an especially attractive place for church and Sunday school gatherings. Lake Quassapaug is an easy drive from New town, via Southbury and the Southford road, turning off toward Middlebury a mile this side of the Southford depot. Mr Wallace reports an increasing patron age for this section, and has ample facil ities for entertaining any number. Sheriff Hawley, a few days ago, re ceived word from Middlebury stating that Mrs Caroline Booth, the victim of the recent shooting episode at Botsford, was In a failing condition and likely to pass away. He accordingly requested Attorney Beecher to visit Middlebury and take her dying declaration. In com pany with Sheriff Kodgers he drove to Middlebury, Tuesday night, but found that Mrs Booth had been about the house and yard that day, and to all ap pearand s was far from death's doer. Mrs Booth Is troubled by occasional at tacks of severe coughing, but is appar ently on the mend. Miss Marcia Taylor has sold her farm to Charles Bedat.
