This morning he apologizes and blames the printer for a misquotation in his published let ter. Wnile we accept Mr Sherwood's . apology, we must state for the benefit of the printer, that we have been issu ing these statements for 161 days and have never yet had a mistake mtfde that amounted to anything. One thing this strike has done is that, it gave a lot of chaps a chance to get their names In print where otherwise they -would always have remained' In obllvjon. If those chaps would just call around and look into the matter with us thoroughly we think, we could save them the dis comfort of making themselves appear ridiculous In the public press. , 1 "It is not our Intention to get into any arguments with committees, etc, con cerning our stand in this strike. The public, we think, understands that pretty thoroughly. Once for all, ;we wish to state that, although the com pany has tried to hide our claims be hind the statement that we would listen to nothing but the reinstatement of Barrett and Kelly, the real fact is that these two men nevep stood in the way of a settlement. If (he company, twenty-three , weeks ago to-day, had Offered us a slight increase in wages provided we dropped the reinstatement of these two men rat of our requests. s Barrett' and Kelly would voluntarily have stepped aside. Nobody knows ,thl8 better than the company. And yet the company has tried to give oat the Impression that only for these men the etrike could easily have been settled. It seems to us it.

Start To-Day, The New Boat Was in the Lead at Every Turn The Race Was Not a Walkover, However, and Was Inter- esting from the Start! New York, June 20. After the show er haid ceased this morning, the weath er cleared and the wind breezed up from the northeast. The three yachts, Reliance, Columbia and Constitution, were started off about 12:30 and crossed the line as follows: Columbia 12:80:80, Reliance 12:30:54, Constitu tion 12:80:50. The wind was blowing at the rate of six to seven knots an hour from the eastward. The Reli ance came up rapidly and blanketing the old defender took the lead. The Columbia and the Constitution had a great luffing match and the Constitu tion tried In vain to get ty the Colum bia. The -boats turned the first mark as follows: Reliance 12:50:02, Colum bia 12:51:05, and the Constitution 12:51:20. As the yachts were turning the first mark , the wind hauled around to the southeast, and on this leg the Reliance beat the Constitution one minute and two seconds and the Columbia one min ute and eleven seconds. The Constitu tion managed to pass the Columbia on the turn. The boats crossed the sec ond mark as follows: Reliance 1:20:50, Constitution 1:24:15 and the Columbia 1:27:58. The run for the home mark was a reach and the boats turned the mark to begin the second round of the course ag follows: 1 Reliance 1:47:52, Constitution 1:52:12 and the Columbia 1-50:30. , , ; SHORT CALENDAR. Juror Planting ; Potatoes While Physi cian's Certificate Explained Abseuce." Doctor's certificates are losing value in the district court. At short calen dar this morning Judge Cowell remark ed at the last criminal term, a juror sent In a physician's certificate that he was too ill to attend court and another juror said he saw the 'sick juror planting potatoes when he was suppos ed, to have been too ill to do anything. Nowadays ho said anyone can get a certificate from a physician. AN torney Cassldy, who is engaged in the case that brought the remarks from the court, said one of the , parties to the case is expected to die, but that he is not dead yet. Judge Cowell thought doctor's certificates are becoming too common as , excuses for putting cases back. . . . y - .-, :'. ;iThe docket was gone Over and a large number of cases were taken off. This was the annual -cleaning up of the! docket. Many. of the cases will be put back next week and scores of them were allowed to remain conditionally. The short calendar did not contain much business .of any great import ance. xne ; case or ueorge a.-., miner against Horace Lemieux was taken off because of the plaintiff's failure to filo a ; bond. Judge Cowell said that the juan who will not file a bond in his suit .will not pay his lawyers. . In the case of Alfred Williams against the Waterbury Republican, At torney Minor, counsel for the plaintiff, filed a motion to reopen a default. It appears Williams failed to file the cus tomary bond to prosecute and Mr Mi nor forgot all about it having been out Of town when it was necessary to tile it. Attorney Meigs representing Bur pee and Carmody, counsel for the de fendant, objected to the motion being granted because if was not made in writing, and therefore it was not prop erly on short calendar. Mr O'Neill re marked that this was hardly neces sary,1 whereupon Mr Meigs jumped up and fired at Mr O'Neill the question: "Are you engaged in this case?" written motion was ordered filed. , .

"GOD BLE8SC0NNECTIGUr With These Words the Legis lative Session ot 1903 Ended. . Over Two Hundred Acts Were Passed - at the Session The Governor Praised the Members for the Amount and Quality of the Work Turned Out Hartford, June 20. With "God bless the'state of Connecticut," solemnly pro claimed from the speaker's rostrum Thursday afternoon, the sessions of the legislature of 1903 came to a close. For over five months the two houses have met at the Capitol, three times a week usually, sometimes four, yet it took five full months of labor to get through the business of the present session. This lengthy session wag referred to with regret by both Speaker Kenealy and Governor Chamberlain Thursday after noon,; as it was against the expressed wish of both at the opening of the ses sion. Otherwise both the speaker and the governor spoke most enthusiastical ly of the work accomplished at the ses sion. - Two hundred and five public acts were passed at the present session of the legislature, and a great mass , of private acts, among the latter fifty-two street railway petitions. . Of the public acts, quite a number were of a nature v providing for state aid for the towns of the state. In this class "was the' bill for state aid for towns with railroad Indebtedness. This measure provided that towns whose grand list is under $2,000,000 may'apply to the state for aid, which may pay an nually 1 per cent of such railroad in debtedness, providing thaiLthe town it self raises by taxation an equal amount toward the paying off of. the principal. Several bills of an educational nature had state aid to the small towns as. a fundamental principle. One of these, and the most important, provides that every town with a grand list under $500,000 may annually receive from the state a sum which will enable the town to expend $25 for each pupil, such sum to be paid toward the salaries of . the teachers only; Another school bill of a similar nature is to the effect that any town not maintaining a high school shall pay the transportation of any child to-a town where a high school is located, the state to pay 50 per cent of .the cost of such transportation. Still another bill provides that the state shall pay the whole or part of the tui tion of scholars of any town, attending a private or' endowed academy in an other town. Still another measure passed provided that two or more towns may unite to employ a school su perintendent, -whose salary shall be di vided between the towns and statefe : Amohg the bills of a general nature. passed by this assembly the following may be noticed: , . Bills to the following effect: Estab lishing a commission, to safeguard the Capitol; that the militia may be called out for national duty for nine instead of three months, as at present; provid ing for a second state insane hospital at Norwich, with an appropriation of $100,000; providing for a new state normal school at Danbury: providing for the establishment 1 of . a state . natural history . 'and , geologi cal v survey, with an appropriation of $3,000;; providing that, . no auto motor vehicles may be run with out a license and a registered number; providing that specifications for good roads improvements shall contain or-, ders for planting of shade trees by se lectmen and highway commissioners; creatine a state, board of embalming examiners; changing the incorporation law so that all corporations shall mak returns to the secretary of the state; so that requirements for organization shall be less stringent; so that $1,000 and not 20 per rent of capital stock must be paid in before doing business and so that the franchise stock is here after to be paid on the minimum capi tal stock only; increasing the salary of the chief justice of the, supreme court to , $0,500, and the associate judges and all superior court judges to $0,000; providing Hhat cities shall be liable. for damages done by. mobs per riotous .uprisings; providing hat in , case of ' riots sheriffs - may call In any, number of depu ties; providing that physi cians of other states may practice here on license without examination; pxo vldlng for death penalty for attempts to kill the president of the United States or any foreign ambassador in Connecticut; establishing a state re formatory for men, with an appropria tion of $50,000; .appointing probation officers for the minor courts and juve nile courts; defining "prize fighting" so. as to make any encounter with knock out blows illegal; establishing a state police department, with superintend ent and six officers, and abolishing the office of state fire marshal. , As important a matter as any that was taken up by this legislative was the redisricting of the senate in ac cordance with the demand of the state at large expressed at the polls. The senate was . redistricted into 35 sena torial districts, the counties to have the following apportionment: New Haven 10, inlcuding New Haven city 4, Waterbury 2; Meriden 1; Hartford 7, Including Hartford city 3; and New Britain 1, New London 3, Fairfield 7, including Bridgeport 3: Windham 2, Litchfield 3, Middlesex 2 and Tolland 1. The attempt to grant Tolland county one extra senator failed of passage, the senate first granting the addition and ben receding and concurring with the house, that gave Tolland' but -one, on constitutional grounds. , - At the same time with the passage of the senatorial redistrictlng plan the house refused to make any change in the present representation in that body. A constitutional amendment that was passed and that will, go over until the next session for final action provides that no member of the general assem bly shall receive public office while a member. Another amendment legalizes the use of voting machines in the state elections. .

He Does Not Believe in the Walking Delegate and Other Things Peculiar to Labor Unions. DERBY'S LABOR MAYOR EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS. He Says the Walking Delegate is a Detriment to Unions A Few Men Run Unions, He Says, for Their Own Interests Sullivan Is a Plumber by Trade 2ind Gets a $500 Salary as Mayor. Derby, June 20. Mayor George P. Sullivan who was elected to his fflce last fall by the labor unions of the city in alliance with the democrats, to-day gave out an interview regarding labor unions in- which he expressed some .very interesting views respecting changes which he believes must be made in the management of labov nv Jons before they. become really efficient organizations. Mayor Sullivan has al ways been a labor union man and was once president of the Central Labor, union of this city. "I have 'never be lieved,", he said "in the walking dele gate and have never believed in high salaried officials. The . union cannot afford to pay big salaries to anyone. The walking delegate is one of those officials the union can get along with out. .Local' unions and the employers can more readily settle a strike when they come together . without outside interference, than can a business agent who is unacquainted with the situation and does not understand local condi tions. :Y,Y v ; - -. . ' : - "Recent startling revelations have shown that a walking delegate is more of a detriment to unionism than a ben "efit. The fact is he is more or less of a 'grafter' and the best thing that la bor unions can do is to have nothing to do with the walking delegate." In speaking of the recognition clause in agreements between unions and em ployers, Mayor Sullivan said that in his opinion, it amounted to- nothing. "When the employes ask union wages and hours , and the employer grants these, that is recognition of the union: It is not necessary to insert.a cl ause in the agreement stating: that the1 em ployer agrees to recognize the union, because, he has already done this. The union gains nothing by its presence there. If an . employer objects to its insertion, it is "foolish to press it and continue to fight for It. In toy opinion, the clause is frequently inserted for the benefit of the walking delegate and bjr him for the purpose of keeping the breach open' between men and employ ers." " fV. ".fL .i-4-' ' '. r "I believe; the days of the walking delegate ; are numbered. The ,unions have been in the hands of a few men who have run them more for the inter f. THE Institute mcr OF NEW YORK Has Opened a Branch 58 Center Street, WATERBURY, CONN, . Where Patients will be re ceived for treatment for cohol and Drug Addiction by the Oppenheimer Metlv Mi X KJ est of themselves than for the Interest of all the members. The result of this has been that many of the members do not attend the meetings and take no interest In them. There is evidence that this is the trouble with the unions and many members are now awaking to the fact that only through business methods and united, Impersonal effort will strengthen the organization. When all the members- take an active In terest in the union, there will be no room for the walk ing delegate. The locals will set tle differences with employers, and there will be no need for high salaried offlclalslwith a large corps of clerks to eat up the funds which the locals pay to the national organization. Even the yery highest officials in the organiza tion should not receive higher pay for their work than they can earn at their trade." , . -. . Y , . . . Mayor Sullivan outlined his idea of a successful union ag.one patterned after fraternal societies and run for the benefit of. members, each local being supreme in its particular field and set tling all questions without the inter ference of outside officials or walking delegates, reserving a larire part of the dues collected regularly for an emergency fund and paying a small percentage into the treasury of the na tional organization. "By thig means," he said, "the 'fund would be large enough in, a few years to carry the men through a strike. Where it is a prolonged strike the national organisa tion must come to the local's relief and pay back to it so much of the reserve fund as might be needed." Then the strikers will not find that the funds they supposed were in . the. treasury have disappeared, as was the case only a short time ago when a big strike yv'as ordered.; These things being .doneJ believe the labor union will be C" power which will be recognized, tc, where and with which everyone w be glad to deal, because it will be known as an honest, upright organiza tion, the sole object of which will be the elevation of the; laboring classes. Let us get rid of the grafters, the walk ing" delegates and the high salaried ofS clals." ;..'.--::-: . ; Mayor Sullivan Is a' plumber by trade. He receives a salary of $300 a year as mayor. J"
