Piatt, president and treasurer of Piatt Brothers fc Co. button manu facturers. at 41 Brown street, died sud denly this morning at his home, :i Buckingham street. So far as his family knew he was in his usual health when he retired last night and was out of bed this morning and in the act of dressing himself when his wife noticed that he. was sneezing hard and the next moment he sank to the floor. He was placed on the bed. but by this time he had breathed his last. Acting Medical Examiner Graves viewed the remains and pronounced death due to heart fr.ilure. Clark Murray Phitt was born in Wa terbury on January 1. 1824. Hewasthe fourth son of Alfred Piatt, who came to Waterbury from Newton in 17S!, and settled at Piatt's Mills, and who. according to tlie history of Waterbury, Mas the first man to manufacture brass in this town. In his boyhood he entered his father's shop to work at button making, but before reaching his majority spent a year at the Connecti cut Literary institute. Suffield. Re turning to Waterbury he again enter ed the button shop and continued in tlte business up to the time of his death. He was a successful inventor and obtained patents on a number of inventions connected with the manu facture of buttons. On May. 1S4C. Mr Piatt married Maria. daughter of Selden Lewis of Naugatuok. who. with two children. Mrs jay H. Hart and Lewis A. Piatt, survive him. Mr Piatt was one of the best known men in Waterbury and one of its most pop ular employers of labor. He always lelieved in paying labor what it was worth and using employes right in every other respect, conseiiuently he never had trouble with his employes. He was one of the stockholders in tlie Connecticut Indemnity association and is reported to have lost something like S2(io."(l(lo in the business. JOIMT h'OTt CCmPLLTEUi aiinisters In Peklnt; Agree to All te 'terma. PEKING'. Dee. 20. At a meedus of the forrign ministers late last evening ev erything in i"".;aid to the terms of the joint note was agreed to, including the British modifications. The ministers refuse to disclose any thing in connection with the matter, be lieviug that the home governments should give the particulars to tile public. Wlant Caused the Delay. WASHINGTON. Dec. 20.- It is now learned tht the entire misunderstanding which lias delayed the consummation of tlie agreement at Peking wits caused by the change or omission ot.the single digit in a complex group of figures making up one of the cipher messages f instruction to Mr. Conger. Curiously enough the change in this single digit exactly re versed the meaning of the entire mes sage, so that Mr. Conger in opposing the English view was nctins exactly con trary to the spirit ot his instructions, though in accordance with their letter. Officials here still decline to niuke pub lie the text of the note agreed on, but it is believed that the following points cover the essential features of the agreement: "The punishment of the otlicials guilty of the Boxer outrages: the payment of indemnity for the wrongs inflicted by the Boxers on the persons, corporations and societies which have suffered; the revi sion of commercial treaties. "Some reform in the tsmig-li-yanien so that the ministers having business with the foreign office may transact it more expeditiously and v.ith a responsible head. "A monument to Baron von Ketteler. the German- minister who was killed in Peking, and the appointment of a prince of the blood to proceed to Germany to make formal apology to the emperor for the crime. "The right to ke p a legation guard in Peking if this is desired. "The exclusion of candidates for exam ination for office for a certain number 3f years in the case of those who may be guilty of antiforeigu activity. "An interdiction of importation of arms into China and of material to be used ex clusively in the manufacture of arms. "The taking of measures to prevent fu ture troubles." Some modification, it is believed, was made to the proposed dismantling of forts so that hereafter there will be nothing of this character that will prevent ready ac cess to the legations in Peking.

George F. Jackson of New Haven, the Connecticut representative of the American Clay company of Pittsburg, Pa. was on a business trip to this sec tion to-day. He was accompanied bv Walter I.. Bradley of Derbv. a well known and skilled photographer. Their purpose in visiting this section was to take a. photograph of the pavement on Bank street from 'Washington ave nue to Porter street, which is made of McMahon-Porter brick, which is manufactured by the American Clay ompauy. A catalogue is being pre pared by this company which will contain sketches or photographs of streets throughout tlie various cities of Connecticut and other states, where the M eMail on-Porter brick is used to form the pavement and accordingly Bank street was the victim of the pho tographer this morning. Mr Jackson said that the pavement on Bank street -was down four years now and it is almost in as good condition now as when it was lirst laid, thus attesting wonderful evidence of 1he durability of the bricks. The idea of taking photographs originated a short time since when Mr Jackson engaged Mr Bradley to lake a photograph of a three-mile patch of vi trifled brick pipe in Han ford. This picture was sent to the company's headquarters and it so pleased them that they requested vie ws of other pavements and bricks should be taken. Views of tlie pave ment, on North WilIo North Main from Grove to the end of the pave ment on North Main stret and Spring street. Mr Jackson said that the num erous factories of the American Clay company in Ohio and Pennsylvania are kept very busy throughout the entire year, the annual output being about 15.0O0.O0I) bricks. Both Mr Jackson and Mr Bradley have many friends in lliis city whom Ihey desired to see. but time didn't permit. As stated be fore if was a flying trip, for they left New Haven this morning and return ed shortly after noon. It is said that Mr Casey, the well known dispenser of cool drinks on the corner of Washington avenue and Railroad Hill street, is having a peck of trouble over the strange and wild antics of a calf, of which he is the un happy possessor. Quite a while ago. it is said that Mr Casey purchased of a resident of Wolcott a brindle cow. The cow was a good one except it hail a very, very wicked temper. It was of a wild and roaming nature and, was very active with its feet, especially tlie hind ones. A short time ago. a calf was boi u and surely, indeed. Mr Owner's cup of troubles was just be ginning. As the calf grew .older, it became wilder and more furious than its parent. It was dangerous for any one to approach it. It is said there was great excitement caused in the neighborhood by the wild and peculiar actions of the calf. It was a chip of tlie old block. Something would have to be done with it. A unique idea en tered Mr Casey's head. He would shut it up in the cellar and so he did. Ail went well until one morning this week. Some of Hellinann's men were engaged in putting in refreshments in the cellar of the saloon. As one of the men. a German, entered the cellar the calf made a leap over four or live barrels which impeded his way and gave the man a iieree butt in the side, knocking him down. The unfortunate victim, as quickly as he could scamper to bis feet, rushed away to lind tlie owner of lliis vicious animal. He wanted the calf killed, but Mr Casey persuaded him to spare its life and lie would rt-alHe it off on Saturday night, so the story runs. John Staple ton, who was in charge of the brewery men on the day of the brutal assault, has composed the following verse in regard to if. Why Casey's calf grew so tall Thev couldn't get him out of the cellar r.t all. While tlie brewery man he would have his life. By Jehovah, said Casey, let him go until Saturday night. And I'll play him off with the cards. And the man that wins may have him all. P. at by Beelzebub, he will have to take him out through the cellar door by Quarters. THE ANTWERP STRIKE. Many Thousands of Miners Are Now Out of Work. Antwerp, Dec 20. It is now estimat ed that there are 13.000 men on strike, including coal porters and sailors, who have joined the dock laborers. Most of the imported laborers have been induced to join the unions. The Red Star line officials have offered men special terms, noping to get tne steamer Nederland loaded in time to FOR A NEW TOWN. Connecticut has 1GS towns and an other. is contemplated. A petition has been drawn up for presentation to the legislature for a division of the town of Groton. For a long time it has been the opinion of the Groton Bank resi dents thatJhey were not getting what w as coming to them in town affairs, for the reason that that which inter ests them was of no interest to the eastern part of tlie town. It litis been the complaint, that the Mystic and Noank sections have received atten tion, at the expense of .the western part of the town. For instance if Gro ton Bank has the largest number of school children, the other sections of the town received the lions share of the school appropriation. It is pro posed to make a separate town of that portion of Groton designated as tlie second voting district, -which Includes I'oquonock, Center Groton and Groton Groton. The town has two represent fives in the legislature and If the dl vision is made, the two town would elect one each. --, . . ,
