JACKLE I m T3-75Bani Stresl Consolidated Railroad Intends to Ac quire All Trolley Roads in State. It Is the intention of the ew York, New Haven and Hartford riailroad to purchase control of all of the import-, ant trolley, roads in the state, accord ing to a statement of the road's plans made yesterday by an official of the railroad. , Plans to this end were discussed at a recent meeting of men who outline thn policy of the New Haven road. This is known to be a fact, as the au-J thority for the statement could not be better. The purchase of control of the lifiiir Haven and Westville road is, as a matter of fact, a very small mat ter in connection wilth the plans which the; road intends to. carry out Some time ago when a certain of ficial of the railroad was relieved he, in conversation with a reporter, quot ed offers which had been made by the New Haven for certain trolley lines which then dild. or Intended to paral lel the steam road. In nearly every case these offers were rejected and on hecount of the so-called cheese-paring policy of the road at that time, the plan was abandoned because it in volved so great an expenditure. It can be stated, however, without fear of contradiction tttat ' this scheme has been revived and under the president administration of the steam rond will be carried to a suc cessful end. ' There was a meeting of some of the directors of th New Haven road In New York yesterday, but whether thisf matter was" taken up could not b0 learned as the New Haven direc tors were not .Inclined to talk.

REICH EACnProprltor R HancocK Man Came to Waterbory t ' Get Rltf of a Two7 Tears Growth Brakemen and passengexa on tha train from Hartford; which arrives In this city at 8:05 every morning ex- cept Sunday, were much startled by the appearance of a man who board ed the. train at Hancock on Monday morning. They could scarcely be- lieve their own eyes. Some thought ' that Itlp Van Winkle hiad risen from the sleep which Is bound to come to , all, and was again an Inhabitant of this sphere. But their -thoughts ' were wad of the mark. The sight which surprised and startled them was a man with a long shaggy beard, untrlmmed, which was nearly two feet long. Hils hair was as shag-V long and apparently had not beenX touched with a comb for many months. The curly locks fell over hig neck and lay strewn about his shoulders. His forehead and part of hi8 face were concealed by the hair, and In certain places hU nalr and beard had met and become so Inter woven that it was Impossible for the observer to tela which was which. It was no wonder that the passengers were startled. The mian might have made a little fortune for himself or somebody else by exhibiting himself In : dime museums. But he was no fading vision. He wa8 not Rip Van WSnkle, but Preston Goodrich of Han cock, who lias lived in that place for about two and a half years 'and during that time. It is said, bad not received a shavft or a. haircut until last Monday. On that day he came to Waterbury and had hJs superfluous supply, of lock8 removed1, v - Preston Goodrich lived with an old and aged man, James Scarrett of Han cock, who died Sunday. Goodrich came from Wisconsin about three yeiairs ago and at once took up hi res idence with Mr Scarrett, who la said to have been one of his 'relative. Scarrett wag about 79 year old and Goodrich about 30. The two men, alone, occupied the, house. They kept much to themselves ani the neigh bors knew little about them. Mr Scar rett was born and always lived! In the house where he died. Neighbors say that the furthest he had ever been from home during his entire life was Waterbury... His compandon con formed very much to his Ideas of life and was contented to stay at the house in Hancock and. the sur rounding woods. To all appearances mo happier or more contented'' couple lived than these two.. - " , But a change came. The old man grew sick and died. Then it was that the youngi man decided that he must get rid of his extra supply of beard and hair In order that he might appear in a presentable condition at the funeral. Hence the trip to Water bury. Brakemen- who saw the man ; when he left Hancock and again when he was returning state that tbey could hardly bell ere was th same man. i t ; THE GREGORIAN HANT. In a Short Time Women's Voices Hay Not be Heard In Catholic Cbolrs , Bishop Tierney has not yet Issued instructions to his priests in reference to the decision of the pope on the mat ter of - reforming church music, says the-Hartford Times. The reforms, contemplated by the pope, include the . adoption of the ; Gregorian chant, wnich is solemn and impressive, and the substitution of choirs composed en tirely of male voices for the present mixed choirs. Bishop McDonnell of Brooklyn and Bishop O'Connell of Portland, Me, have already taken ac tion on the matter. It Is understood that Archbishop Williams of Boston, the ecclesiastical province to which the diocese of Hartford 'belongs, will issn a circular In a short time In con formity with the decision of the pope, A prominent priest of this diocese treated to-day that it will take some , tima to make the alterations In the church choirs required by the decision Of the pope. In the first place it will be necessary to adopt music. In all probability a committee of prominent ecclesiastics will be appointed by the ' bishops of the Catholic church in the United States to pass on the music with the view of securing uniformity throughout the country. After uie committee has made a report to the authorities of the church the music , ' will be published. Then It will be necessary to organise the choirs of male voices and to train the singers In the rendering of the Gregorian chant. It will take from six to nine months to have everything in readiness for the. substitution of the Gregorian chant for the music that is used at present at the services. " When the Gregorian chant shnll be adopted there will be no longer female voices in the chOlTs at the ordinary services of the church. It is said there will be a concession to permit of the singing of favorite hymns at funerals and weddings. - L; There Is also some talk to the effect' that the POP contemplates ordering t -reform in the dress.of priests, and tha they will be required to wear ttaeirH cassocks on the street, gsme as the . clergy on the continent of Europe andx In the province of Quebec. x, SAYS HE NEVER SLEEPS.
