The fire men claim they are paid less than the firemen of any city of the Rlze of Waterbury in the state and that as they are not allowed for time off only when injured when on duty they are entitled to another day, more over as they are constantly on duty night and day. The petition was re ferred to the committee on rules and efficiency, Commissioners Malone and Lewis, and it is expected they will file a report at the next meeting which will be held next Wednesday afternoon.

Hartford, Dec 31. 190S. To the People of Connecticut. The appalling catastrophe by earthquake and fire which has just overwhelmed a friendly nation calls for profound sympathy, and immedi ate relief measures from every part of the world. This country will do its duty, and Connecticut will not shirk Its share of .whatever can ajid may be done to relieve the distress of stricken Italy. The National American Red Cross has, Issued an appeal to its state branches for contributions of money to be telegraphed without delay to the proper authorities. The state secretary for the Connec ticut Red Cross has received the fol lowing telegram from the National Red Cross secretary, dated from the war department, Washington, D. C: "Issue an immediate appeal for money contributions lor itanan earthquake relief." The Connecticut Branch of the National Red Cross reiterates this appeal to the citizens of our com monwealth, and confidently looks for generous contributions from the men, women and children of Connec ticut, who have not forgotten the shock and stress of our own great na tional, calamity on the Pacific coast, nor the swift sympathy and ample aid that came to us from over the seas. To facilitate the business tne Con necticut Red Cross has designated a state committee as follows to receive contributions and forward the same at the earliest possible moment to the treasurer of the Connecticut Keil Cross, Richard H. Cole, P. O. drawei 68, Hartford, Conn, who will tele graph the amounts to the national Red Cross in Washington: Richard H. Cole, P. O. drawer b, Hartford. H. S. Conklin, 9 Central row, Hart ford.

KINNEY, Secretary Conn Bed Cross. Frank Taylor Was Brounbl Ink ' Court By Bis Fatbrr. The divorce laws of the state seem to be responsible for the peculiar pre dicament Frank Taylor, who will be 16 in February, found himself In the city court to-day. Taylor's father lives at Wedge's coiners. He has boen divorced and Is living with his second wife. His first wife Is living with her second husband in Hartford and between bis own father and own mother on one hand and his step father and step-mother on the other hand young Taylor wonders whore-he is at. His father testified that he cannot handle him, and the boy ad mitted as much. Mr Taylor did not want the boy sent to any institution. He Just had him In court to see what he could have done with him, for he will not work and he will not play. He stays home nights, but he has run away three times. He has been working a year and in that time ha had fourteen Jobs, his father said. A few days ago he loft his father' place and went to his mother's In Hartford. A day there gave him enough of the Capitol city. The boy admitted that his father can't handle him, neither can his mother, nor hie step-mother, nor his step-father, nnd he could not tell the reason why. He said he can't get along with his step mother, and his step-father doesn't want him around the house. The other day when in Hartford he found an old revolver and threatened his mother he would get a new one and do his step-father because he was Ill treating his mother. He said that his mother would like to be appoint ed his legal guardian, but so long ns he is under hla father's care she can't handle him. Such a peculiar case never before came to the attention of the court. Judge Peasley did not know what to do and Prosecutor Mc Grath did not know what to reconi mend, but finally suggested that the boy be put on probation for thirty days, and the court so ordered. The trial of a case in which Mrs Nastazia Wuzsky, her brother, Leo pold Kusmusky, and his wife, Annj, were charged with breach of th peace, occupied the greater part of the morning. Mrs Wuzsky, who. looked more like a waxen figure than a human being, fainted twice before court opened and had to be helpod to the witness stand. She was hurt internally, more by shock than any thing else, and she was able to spealc only above a whisper. No one could account for the marks on her fore head, her sprained wrist aid wrenched shoulder. It seemed to be a case of one woman and three men against Mrs Wuzsky. Both women were found not guilty and Kusmusky was fined $10 and costs and given thirty days In jail. An appeal was takeu. Errleo Napolonl and Francesco P. Parisl broke loose in a saloon at the corner of Jackson and Bank streets last evening and Giovanni Rizzo got some bad knife wounds. He was unable to be in court and on that ac count the cases were continued to to morrow on ball of $300. BROKE HUB XOSE. Hin t ford Accident that Ended in an Arrest. Hartford, Dec 31. Because Mrs Laura Campancella came out of tho door of her lodging house at 16'J State street yesterday afternoon just at the minute she should have been somewhere else, she got a broken nose, and Frank Copier, a carpenter's apprentice, 18 years old, was arrest ed for assault and battery. Just as Mrs Campancella came out of the door to the street, Copier, who was working ou a staging above the door, dropped his hammer to the ground, and the woman caught it on the nose. She fainted, and by the time Copier got down on the ground she was lyinK in the hallway in a pool of blood.' The sight of the unconscious woman made Copier's tears flow about as fast as the blood did, and Mrs Campancel la was taken to the emergency hos pital in the police station in the am bulance and treated by Police Sur geon F. A. Emmett, and Copier wai taken the station in the patrol wagon. He was later released, still weeping, under bonds of $100.

Morris Meyers of the town of Dan bury yesterday filed with the state secretary a petition that the legisla ture examine into the right of Wil bur F.

Out of the half dozen candidates from the town of Dan bury two representatives were chos en, M.
