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.

-H noyine , Cattlint. . .'
' ' 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.

Prof asily Was Not Allowed.
The hearing of the suit of Stiles
Atwood against Ephrlam F. 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.
