iVATEIin'UUY ITTEtiflNU DZUUUitAT FHIDAVV JANUAKV 25, 1C07. I STATE CICIZS 01 Ft;;? Cstss, tj PcslxICItrks. At tbe annual meeting of the Con necticut. State Business, Men's asso ciation in New Haven yesterday offl- 3 erg were chosen as follows: Preel ent, E. L. Graves of Bridgeport; vice-president, A, Howard Abbe of New Britain; second vice-president, Daxtnr T. Riahon of llerlden: secre- k tary, p. S. Valentine Qf Derby; treas- - urer, F. W. Mills of South Manches, . ter. O A. Ziglatzkl was chosen a - member of the board of directors and 0. F. Hughes was appointed tooths legislative committee. ',v; J During the afternoon session a res olution was introduced by T. W, O'Connor of New Britain, asking that the association go on record -as fa voring an increase in the pay of pos tal clerks and that tne Connecticut senators and representatives be ' asked to support the Wilson bill. The resolution was adopted. ,.'" V The question of the telephone Jaw was brought up again and an anl- mated discussion ensued for ' and against the repeal of the law, which lasted throughout a great part of the session. The matter was finally dis- ' posed of by the adoption of a resolu tion which referred all matters per taining to the 4elepbone service to the legislative committee. , A. M. Cooper of Bridgeport pre- 1 sented a report fom the committee on ' Insurance. In this the Insurance com-' islttee reported that it had bills in process of composition whereby there I will be created a' state Insurance board of appeals, tp whom any ag grieved policyholder may apply for relief from burdensome rates and .conditions. The committee has also a bill prohibiting any fire insurance company that - writes Insurance amounting to more than 80 per cent of Its surplus to policyholders in the conflagration district of any city from doing business in this state. A bill was also presented requiring fire In surance companies to hold its rein surance reserve as a trust fund for the benefit of its policyholders. In an editorial Monday the Bridge port Post said: It is reassuring to note that the lo cal agitation in reference to exces- Ljive insurance rates has not abated aespite me concessions gamea ny tne committee of the ' State Business Men's association. It is true that the remarkable zeal and activity ' dis played by the committee has forced the New England exchange to sit up and take notice, and that in a num ber of cases the advance ', in rates scheduled has been cut down consid erably. It Is also true that in other eases the advance still stands, the tendency of the exchange be rng' to mollify those who are most urgent in calling attention to what Is un deniably an imposition on tbe public. But if we estimate the character of the State Business Men's committee correctly, it will not be content to rest quietly in satisfaction at what has already' been accomplished, bnt will press, on' and push the reforms advocated to the very limit: That tile Insurance interests also appre hend renewed attack Is shown by the reports that sundry lobbyists are girding themselves for the fray at ttartiora. ine people win waicn out caretuuy., Tne general public Is on poeed to the desire to advance rates on the part of the insurance com panies and it is believed that there should be legislation enacted in this state which shall protect the small property owner as well aa the man of large Interest. Anything that can be done In that line will have the support of everyone. CLOCK SHOP EMPLOYES. Pilled Eagle Hall Lait Night at Aa anal Entertainment The aid society of the employes of Waterbury Clock company will have to get a larger place than Eagles' hall to dance in for their next an nual. Last night the hall was over thronged. There must have been 1.600 there. About 90 per cent of the employes of the shop were among tbe dancers and they had a great time. The hall was, dressed as tt was last year, with simple bunting here and there and the face of a largeJ clock. In action at that, high up In the four sides of the hall. On account of having a long stage entertainment the exercises of the evening ,begaa early, and once the crowd began to pour In the hall was filled in no time. The few mono logues and duets on the program wef much appreciated, notwith standing that the performers were well known to the audience. The Ho gan brothers were repeatedly encored la their sketch "The Hotel Man and the Minstrel Man." and the fancy drill by the guards of Noeohogaa lodge of Odd Fellows was very well executed in varied colored light. The dance program was a hit each dance being dedicated (la disguise) to each of the foremen. One of tbe boxes was occupied by Senator. Irving H. Chase, treasurer and secretary of the cluck company, and a few members of h!s family and the family of Superinten dent Lerkin. - ' It was near 11 o'clock when the stage entertainment was over and dancing began Immediately, the grand march being led by Foreman Peter B. Reeves, president of the aid society, and hie daughter May. ' It was early morning before the last of the sixteen dance numbers was rolled off.

' ' Upon the - complaint of Catalina Maresca,' Itllo Delflno was arrested yesterday and A Is affairs were told in the city court to-day before Judge Burpee. It seems to have been a case of unrequited love. Catalinas story was that some seven months ago' she became acquainted with Itllo and since then-he has been following her and making life miserable for her. I Apparently he wished to marry her, out she nad no such fancy. In that way things went along until the other evening when he followed her to her mother's store at 479 West Main , street. Rafel Stango was in the store 1 and she called him out. Itilo is known as "Romeo" and it seems Romeo threatened to kill Catff Ilna right there on tbe sidewalk un less she would throw him a morsel of mercy. But instead, she called out Stango and then Itllo struck Ca talina in the face and Ifls hat fell off. He picked It up and ran and a cry went up and all the small boys in -the street ran after him, Stango being in the crowd.' ? , - Itilo'8 defense was that he. never followed the girl, but she happened to be wherever he was. He denied fol lowing her from the American Web company's shop on the evening in question or that he even struck her. He Bald she spit in his face, which to an Italian is a very serious matter. he said that she has done' this some three thousand .or four thousand times since last summer. Officer Cclesanto testified that last summer he was called upon a few times to warn the man to keep away from Catallna's abode. Itilo did ad mit that he had been warned off by the girl's mother and brother, but that she herself Invited him around to the back door and he went there. He did not want the girl if she did not want him, but he could not help it If she happened to be wherever he was. "V... ' Instead of he striking' her, it was she was struck him, he said, and then he ran and all the boys and the dogs and cats ran after him. All this was so true that he could put his hand on the Bible, he said, and prove it. He was fined $16 and costs. Thomas Leary was charged with Intoxication, but as he is suspected of something more serious, the case was held over till to-morrow morn ing. '....; Mary Durham was committed to Brookslde for ninety days fer intox ication. , Patrick Rellly wa fined 110 and costs for over-indulgence, and a case against Joseph Pukis for non-support of his wife and child Was continued.

Atwood, his stepfather, for $1000 Is dragging its slow but laughing lengths along In the district court. Twice yester day Judge Cowell felt It necessary to remind the plaintiff that he' was in the august presence of the law and that profanity is not allowable in such a place. Atwood, the plaintiff, is a most emphatic person and if there is any of the witness box left after the case Is through it will be a wonder, for he is forever pounding it with his fists and scratching it with his finger nails in emphasis of nis HittieuieuiB. . i The greater part of yesterday af ternoon and to-day was taken up with the domestic relations existing between the plaintiff and his wife. It seems that he married a Mrs Ra chel Allen and he did not get along with her very well. They then lived on Phoenix- avenue and Atwood was employed in Norton's livery stables. He did not get along with the work men there either and oneay he left his 'job and the town together' and has not lived with his wife since. That was about nine years ago. Mrs Atwood admitted that her first hus band was a fine man, but her second, Atwood. was of the lemon variety. She admitted alsoi that had she known him longer she woufa not have married him. , When Atwood took the stand he was as impetuous as before. He was very fidgety with his spectacles, tak ing off and putting them on again and at length he made his interroga tor. Attorney Russell, very nervous. ' "Why don't you keep still with your glasses? What's the matter with you anyway?" he was asked. "Nawthln the matter, Mr Russell. I'm only glvin' you time to get yer wind," said Atwood.
