WATERBURY, CONN, FRIDA.Y, NOVEMBER 1G, 1000. PRICE TWO CENTS. WILLIAM. Woman Hurled One at His Car riage To-Day. WOMAN THOUGHT TO BE INSANE The Emperor Was Driving in an Open Carriage When 'the Woman Hurled Chopper at Him Emperor's Friends Laid Hands on the Woman The Po lice Saved Her. Breslau, Nov iC Emperor Wil liam was the object of an attempted outrage this morning which, however, failed. As he was driving in an open carriage to the Cuirassier barracks, ac companied by the beritary prince of Saxe-Meiningeu, a woman in the crowd hurled an axe at the carriage. The rapidity with which the vehicle was passing saved its occupants. The axe, or hatchet, fell just behind the car riage. The woman was immediately arrested. The missile, it developed later, was a short handled chopper. The woman is believeib to be insane. Her name is Selma Sciinapke. and she occupied a place m the trout rank of the specta tors, in the side furthest from the em peror The chopper was so well aimed, it novV appears, that it actually struck the carriage. A crowd of people who witnessed the outrage threw them selves on his majesty's assailant, but the prompt interference of the police saved the woman from injury. MACHINISTS MAY STRIKE.

The annual report of the United States commis sioner of fish ami fisheries, George M. Bowers, says the present amount ot capital invested in t lie fisheries of the New England states is $li).(i:j7.()'J(;. shovriuv a decreas- of $4.:;7o.7.''8 since the commission's last statistical cnu vass in .188!). This decrease, however, is staled to t'p only apparent. bein;t acused chiefly by the transfer of tin menhaden industry to New York. The New England food fisheries in the ag gregate have increased in iiuaniuv and decreased only slivrhrly in value. There are :'..V145 persons employed m t!rs work and 1.-1x7 vessel.--, valued with their equipment at $4,224.:!:;;). The total product is ''.)". :i!"."i..-7( pounds, worth $!.72.7t2. the fishery for cod. -u.sk, haddock, hake and pollock rank ing first wirli a value of S2,7S'J.1lS). fol lowed by The oyster fishery of Rhode Island and Connecticut, worth $1.!)1'). f.S4. The lobster fishery is hct. t in commercial importance, being worth S 1,270.1100. While the catch has fallen from ;U).rOD.ot)0 pounds in 1SS!). to H. Utitt.oon in 1W8. the price of lobsters has so advanced that the value of th: industry has increased a considerable detrree. The iuouiry conducted on Lake Eric in the calendar year 8',9 shows a de cided increase in ihe fisheries of this lake since the last canvass in quantity and value of the product, capital in vested and uumber of persons em ployed. This, Is .chiefly shown in the catch of white lish and lake herring. The yield of pike and perch, though lame, is not considerably greater 1h;in iu former years. Three thousand seven hundred and twenty-eight persons and 104 vessels are engaged iu the indus try, representing an investment of S2. 710.000. In ISO'.). G8,;J9S,00() pounds of products were obtained, worth Sl.lfiO. 800. A feature of the fisheries is tlie n umber of carp which wen- taken. 1h catch amounting to over ft.UwO.OOO pounds, valued at $51,400. The quantity of fishing products lauded at Boston and Gloucester show an increase of more than 3S.000.000 pounds, with an increased value of over $1,200,000. The bulk of the iu otcanf is to be credited to Gloucester. The total tiroducfs landed from Amer ican res-els at the two ports amount ed io 170.774. 301 pounds, and were val ued at nearly S4.20O.0itO. Inquiries now iu progress along the lakes and in the Mississippi valler show that an increasing number of enrp are being caught and shipped chiefly to the markets of th- larger eastern cities. From Lake Erie and the Ohio river and certain of ils tribu taries the quantity ff this species taken is nine times as irrcat-as six years airo. From the Illinois river more carp are taken than all other species combined, the catch for IbOt) amounting to 0.:J32,PO0 pounds, valued at $180,000. If would appear that this fish will become more and more an im portant factor iu ihe food fish supply of the country. The American fur seaf herd continues to decrease in num bers through Ihe continuance of pelagic scaling and the recent counts nhow that fewer pups are born. The total uumber of fish distributed by the goroniment iu the past fiscal year was I.ltr4.ti3,7r4. an increase, principally of shad, flat fish, white fish and lake trout, of about lo0.000.000 over the previous vear. Owing to the excessive drought iu California in ISO!) few salmon nsscended Battle Creek and MeCloud rivers as far as the hatch eries. The Columbia river (Oregon) re sults were better, though the run of salmon was poor. An attempt will be made to rear all salmon fry to the yearling stnge before liberating them. At Baker Lake. . Washington, the propagation of the sockeye and blue back salmon, perhaps the most impor tant eommerciallj' of the I'uget sound salmon, has begun, and over 10.000. 000 frr have been hatched and plant ed there and in the Skagit river. About 1. "5.000.000 lake trout eggs were collect ed on Lake Michignu spawning grounds, and over 12.000,000 from tin Lake Superior grounds. At the- Lake Erie station over 8H7.ftX3.00O white fish eggs were hatched and the fry liber ated, a gain of nearly 200.DOO.6oO aver the year before. .Very satisfactory re sults have been attained at the New England .stations devoted to the propa gation of marine commercial fishes. The decrease of lobster fishery iu New England is shown by the large de crease of men engaged iu it. In the shad propagation the year showed an increase of 0.000.000 more fry hatched and planted than last vear. The stocking of sirftable streams with the various species of trout has been continued, snecial attention being paid to the distribution of brook trout and black and spotted trout. Investigations designed to give the practical assistance to the oyster in dustry have been carried on. The re sults of . the experiments in fattening oysters by increasing the product! ve-ne-ss in inclosed waters of their natur al food have given much encourage ment. - . On Lake Ontario, where for sev eral years there -has been a decided falling off in the commerical fisheries, there was found to be a material im provement, the yield being nearly three times as great as in 1897, and it would appear that the effects of the fish, cultural operations which have been conducted here are beginning to be felt. The number of persons! en gaged and capital invested are also nronortiouat,--lv greater. The yield iu 1800 amounted to nearly 2."00,000 noiiuds, valued at oyer $100,000. i IRIS'S Bill RECEIVERS- Report Presented in Superior Court To-Day.

Refuses to Allow a Pole on His SiJe walk The City Has Ordered Pole Removed I-rum Street The Case Is One That Will Be Watoea With In-' 'I hen- promises to be a big Cht be tween the trolley company and Jamea Doni'.hue, who o'.vus a three-story frame building on the c-.-ner of North Main uml North lilm streets. The point of contention is. has any corpor ation like the one uieui iouetl power to place a pole from wh:-:i tt suspend it.s vi lies on t:ie sidewalk or property of any one. The determination of this iptestiou. which ,s juite a popular one, will settle the problem, who ewns the sidewalks. Mr Donauu has oia.de up his mind to mend a few tliousand dol lars io find out who owns the sidewalk t. Inch he paid for and built, and it is hinted that he will be assisted, in the litigation by his neighbors. The scene of Ihe proposed litigation is tho paved area on Nwrih Main street betw'oon (Terry and Urvvc streuts. The pole which M:nds in tne renter of this ide space is used jointly by the tele phone and ihe trolley companies. A black network of wires branches cut in all directions Tiom it. It has been ordered removed hy the board of pub lic works nn the irround tha.t it is a menace to public life, lhat. in fact, it obstructs a public thoroughfare. The owners of the pole have already put on a pole ou the sidewalk iu front of W. N. Ladd's new block, preparatory to removing the one objected te. They then set about putting up another pol,e on (lie corner of Mr Donahue's, side walk, hut he objected and tiie work men went away. The board of public works, at its last meeting-, again or dered the pole (o be removed, and on this occasion placed the limit f time at December 1. A few days ago the companies made another ittemut to dig a hole on the corner of Mr Doma hue's sidewalk, but. fortunately fer himself, he happened to be about at the time, and again bjectad before the men had lime to make an impres sion on t he artificial sioue sidewalk. Now the yompauy. upon the advieu of their counsel. Attorney Terry, claims Uiev are not obliged to reuiova the objectionable pole until the city has provided them with a aew place in which to put. it. Mr Donahue claims his prepertj would b- materially damaged if tht pole in uestiou wai pnt up wliert ihe company tried to put it. It would obstruct the view uu Nurth Main street and Cherry" street, for ue thing, be sides lieiiifr an object that is not at all beautiful. These matter are asuafly disposed oT by amicable setUeaient be tween tii;- company and tiie preperty owner. Sometime iwuiyeMjsatiwu in some form is given, but when it is im possible to agree ihe causty ceuiniie-sione-s are called iu and they decide. Thee n n-.m.-al is taken te the snuer- ioi"Vourl if the parties' back ar still up. A glance over the scene at con tention shows at once the rreat Jia- e that would be done Mr Uaaahae's property by placing tke pole an it; yet the great incouveuieaoe t the com pauy by placing ihe pole elsewhere i also apparent'. The matter wifl nrob ablv rest now until the closing of tha time limit. December 1. . ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION MET. Devine and Murray Elected Captains of Basket Ball and Poll Teams. An interesting meeting of the Ath letic association of tiie local High school was held at the High school building to-day after the school ses- i sum. about twenty members attend- ing. Tiie principal business of the i meeting was the appointment of a i basket ball and a polo manager. It j was generally regarded that Duums i Murray, who had mauajed rho loot ! ball eleven so successfully u-ader try ing difficulties, would be elected ai manager of both teams, or al least the basket hail team, but Jecse Devine, who has well represented Wateroury's interests in the doings of the lnter scholastic league, proved a dark hers a and defeated htm by a vote of for manager of the basket ball team. Mruiafcer Murray was auaaiiuously elected to manage the polo team. There is no doubt but the High school will have both a crack basket ball and nolo team. On the latter will be . Byrnes. L. Walker and T. Walker, all of last year's tram, while K. Byrnes. A. and H. Cook. Warner. Sanderson. Cullinne. Knopf. Hart and a ton others will be candidates for the bas ket bsil team. The difficulty will be not in trying to get msteris.1 -but in attempting to pick out the best play ers. There is no doubt but: the teams will be properly managed when Messrs. Devine and Murray are at the helm. -F.T-i.i'T-i rmtTDT". lll'.ll'l A.'- IJJlili.'. Loudon. Nov It).
