Sewell to Meet Trolleymen In Bridgeport Thursday Colonel Burpee's Handling of the Legal End f the Case Strikers ssue Their Daily Statement . General Manager Sewell has a call to re eet the trolleymen at Bridgeport, Thursday, but lie does not seem to think it means anything that will lead to . trouble. Mr Sewell appeared In good humor to-day and acted as If he felt like a man that had been in a race and1 Avon out Colonel Burpee looked cheerful, too he always ; does and walked to a car In Exchange place with the same unconcern as he used to wear when there was nothing unusual on.T ' Judge Burpee has been a great help to the company. In this fight He con ducted the campaign with consummate skill and yet managed to go about his business and receive callers as though lie was not a party to the most serious labor trouble that ever occurred in Connecticut The' colonel met those who didn't have much sympathy , with his side of the question with open arms and talked to them in a fartherly1 way. Just as he invariably does when -he calls upon the city boards, and while winning them to his way of thinking too often get the notion into f their head that he- is. working for Waters burv instead of for ; any . particular client Why,, if you met Colonel Bur nee in his. private office and saw him tilt back his chair, put his hands on the arm rests and then look you square in .the face and hear him state the com pany's side of the case, you would be almost persuaded that he meant every word he said. Yes, the colonel hag a very winning way, bo much so that when fc.e gets you under his magnetic Influence it is hard to resist his power. His tact has been noticeable at every . stage of this strike, and those who know, him can tell his footmarks, no .matter how-securely they may be cov ered'up. Many claim that the gallant colonel I met his. match ;in the strikers' eexcutive committee, and feel that if nothingbad occurred' to disturb .the public peace. all his sophistry wouldn't i have saved the company from "being forced to capitulate long before this hour of , the day. Colonel Burpee has great faith in the newspaper reporters and often goes to considerable trouble to help them. He doesn't care what the reporters write so long as it is fa vorable to the 'trolley company-- Do you see?. .The cojonelis not unmindful -of the fact that public sympathy. Is with the strikers, but he has a way of brushing a remark of "this kind to one side that One would be puzzled to know whether he meant to deny or affirm it. . The strikers' ' executive committee issued the following statement this af ternoon:, ' : .. ' ' ; ' What we have been expecting for some trme has happened.' The Bridge port trolleymen have made formal de-, Biands upon the company, similar to those presented by us. and the general manager will give, the committee a (hearing oni Thursday. ; pur Bridgeport brothers have been put off again and again on their request for a conference, and finally became tired, threw down the gauntlet and presented their ' de mands to the company: ;The result is that they will be given a (hearing on their grievances next Thursday, the re sult of which will be watched with great interest In this city. k. The ac tion of the Bridgeport men does not verify the statement of thev general manager, who jokingly staedNto a re porter yesterday that they were "a hap py and contented lot." V , - 'Now that the fine weather Is . ad vancing with rapid strides,' we have prepared to get down to business con ceirmlrfour automobile lines. Look . out for our "flying: squadron" in the very near future. , We are now nego- 'gtlatlng for a fleet of them, each one of which will comfortably carry from twenty to twenty-five passengers. S We notice that a representative of the company is quoted a'S stating that two of our men answered the company's Fummons to return to work early in the rrlke. We would like to have that paper find out the names of those two men. This information is cer tainly news to us.. as we have counted beads and find all our men standing on this, our seventy-third day of the strike, shoulder to shoulder with un abated determination and just as vig orous as they were when we. went out "n January eleventh last. . . ' ') "Boss" Farley and' Superintendent Wales occupied a box at the Jacques theater last night The New Yorker enjoyed, the show very much. Two strike , breakers who secured board and room under false pretenses with a Field street amily, had to pick up their duds and get .out as soon as It became known that they were em ployes of the trolley company. ,. ' . If anyone wishing to make trouble, for the trolley , company happened to be on North Main street last night as the last car was going down, he could easily; have them up for overspeeding. If that car did not go down the street at a clip of twenty miles an hour, the few spectators who saw it are no judges of speed. It went by like a flash and the spectators expected to see Jt jump the tracks every moment. There was a report about town to ' flay that two of the striking trimmers Jiad returned to work this week. Man ager Sewell.was asked in regard to the matter and he said: .". "No,; two of the - striking trimmers have not returned to work. Why . should they?. , We have plenty of. trimmers, now.". Later he said that two trimmers who used . to work for the company some time before the strike and bad been working In f ac yries were again working for the com pany. .

M. EGAN, Chief of Police ' Waterbury, Conn., March 21, 1903. " v t while some of them may be the real thing, It is quite likely that many of the men that are. nosing around are clever sneak thieves. Some of the so called detectives are peddlers and seem to take more stock In how to get into the houses they visit, than in disposing of their wares. One of them entered a house yesterday ; through the - front doorway, and after talking about strikes, murders and other things, left by way of the rear door. . About half anvhour later the family missed a flat iron, that was on the table when the man went in, and while they have no proof that he took It, everything point toward him as the guilty party."

Some That Rarely. Become Tame o,r Cease to Become Restless In ' v ' Captivity. VThe theory that climatic condi tions are'largely responsible for the enterprise and activity of the Amer ican people , finds contemporary de monstration in the lower orders of -animals, and particularly among the fish," said a scientist who has made a close study of the collection in the New V Yprkv aquarium. " - "All of the game fish," he said, "the fighters, the highstrung, nervous fel lows, like 'the brook, trout, the. black bass and their only slightly less strenuous brother, , the pike, are northern fish. In only rare instances do these fish become tame or remain restful in captivity. They have the .keen spirit of American enterprise iri them. ! ; '.'-,-:t'' J "On the other hand, the quietj easy-going fish are nearly all from tropical waters. Of course, there are exceptions from muddy habitats, but all of the brilliant-hued, gaudy fish are from the tropics.. They are calm and quiet, and after a short time in captivity becoae so tame as ,to eat food fearlessly from the hands of the keepers. v' "The two classes," continued the scientist, according to the New York Mail and Express, "are like the na tions of the north and south one alive and keen, and. the other , beau tiful to look 'upon and romantic, but lazy and useful only for decorative purposes."

Most varities of sea anemones at tach to rocks or 'spiles or other hard substances, but there are some that make their home in sand, in which they can bury themselves completely, or above the rrface of which they can as readilf rise. Such sea ane mones are found at some places along the Long Island shore of the sound, says the New York Sun. "Extended these sea anemones may be seven or eight inches in length, or more; collapsed they settle down so that their tentacled upper disk is flush with the surface of the sand or mud in which they bury themselves, or it may be drawn down a little below it, making a little depression, a veritable trap for any small creature that might chance to wander that way. Or for its own protection this sea anemone can settle down into its hole further still, 60 that the sand will tumble in or wash in over it.' . Said , a, fisherman who was telling of this sea anemone's characteristics: "It comes the nearest to being able to crawl into its own. hole and pull the hole in after it of anything I know of." t i 5,000.00 5,000.00 3,000.00 200.00 250.00 200.00 3 i t $ t f t 'V t' t WERE REFUSED PASSPORTS.
