COMMON COUNCIL.
Many Matters Discussed "at Monday
Night's Meeting.
At the regular meeting of the
common council, Monday evening, an
application was received from the
State Line Telephone company, for
permission to build subways through
the streets, and to conduct business
here. The application was accompa
nied by a communication .from D.
A. Reynolds, vice president, in
which he stated that the laws of
Connecticut give the Southern New
England Telephone company a mo
nopoly, and that his company be
lieves such laws are unconstitution
al, and is prepared to contest them
in the Supreme court of the United
States, but in order' to bring suit the
company must gain an entrance into
the state, and has chosen Stamford
for that purpose. The company
would give the present $60 service
of the Southern New England Co.
for $48; the $42 service for $30;
the $40 for $30; and the residen
tial party-wise service, at present
$2 4, for $12. It would also give the
city twelve telephones free of
charge. The application was refer
red to the finance committee, with
the corporation council, to investi
gate and report.
Among other business transacted
was the ordering of electric lights
at Shippan, South street, Seaside and
Southfield avenues. The local Elks
were granted a permit to erect
arches for lighting purposes during
their carnival.
Several building permits were
granted, some taxes abated, the Ar
mory and Realty Hall designated as
polling places for the coming elec
tion, specifications for printing the
city reports adopted, and it was de
cided to extend the public sewer on
Strawberry Hill avenue.
GETTING IN LINE.
Employing Printers are Leaving the
Typothetes Ranks.
The Union Printers' strike throughout
the country for an eight hour day is by
no means a failure, as employers are
slowly but steadily granting the demands
of the men, and signing eight hour
agreements, as will be seen by the fol
lowing telegrams recently received here :
"Washington, Oct. 3. Thomas W.
Cadick, manager Glove Printing Co.,
member of Executive committee United
Typothetae, delegate to Buffalo, secretary
local Typothetae, signed today, another
clean sweep. All rats discharged."
"Washington, Oct. 1. George E.

member of President Roosevelt's com
mission in the packing house investiga
tion, will speak on Socialism at Central

A Night on the Sound.
A party of young men, wet, cold and
tired, worked their way into the local
harbor last Saturday morning. They
left the Park city on Friday night
in a seventeen foot open launch, heading
across the sound for Long Island where
they hoped to witness the automobile
race. Their craft became unmanage
able and the night was uncomfortably
spent drifting down the Sound and
dodging the big steamers. When day
light came they made their way to
Stamford and were taken care of by
the employes of the Stamford Motor
company, who put the visitors' launch
in shape for the home trip.
Left For Dayton, Ohio.
Thomas H. Jordan, for the past
twenty-twro years an employee in the
tool room of the Yale & Towne
Manufacturing company, left Stam
ford last Tuesday morning for Day
ton, Ohio, where he has secured a
fine position with the National Cash
Register company. The many friends
of Mr. Jordan part with him with
great regret, as he wTas exceedingly
popular with all with whom he came
in contact. He was formerly very
prominent in athletic circles, and for
many years was catcher on the old
Yale & Towne base ball team.
Hart well's Hard Luck.
Hartwell, Delap &: Co. are cer
tainly having hard "luck with their
big plate glass windows. It is but a
short time since a new one was
placed in position, and during Tues
day afternoon's heavy wind one of
the awning irons was blown against
the new glass, putting it out of com
mission. Hope to Save Leg.
Ralph Baldwin, son of Dentist
Winfield H. Baldwin, of Norwalk,

Nathaniel R. Hart, holding in his
right hand a revolver with which he
had ended his life. He had been
dead for several hours, and' physi
cians who examined the remains
think the deed was committed about
midnight. The cause of Mr. Hart's
committing the rash deed was, with
out doubt, insanity. Deceased was

known men in town, a lawyer of

STAVING OFF FROST.
Plant Lovers Cover Their Treasures
Every Night.
Those who are interested in flower
gardens are on the lookout for the first
killing frost So far we have escaped
a visit from Jack Frost, and the gar
dens are in as fine condition as they
ever "were.

blooms and plants on the first visit
of frost. Any cold night now in pass
ing through the streets plants and win
dow boxes will be seen with a covering
thrown over them. In this way plants
will be preserved until the ground
really hardens. The white cloths that
are thrown over plants would remind
one of ghosts and many a person has
been known to have been frightened
by them in the night.
TEACHING MOTORMEN.
Electric Engine Running Near Rye
For Novices.

GREENWICH WANTS GAS.
Connecticut Railway and Lighting
Company Says No.
"It is now eleven years since a fran
chise was given the Connecticut Rail
way and Lighting company for sup
plying Greenwich with gas, and still
the village has not this much needed
commodity, without which the growth
of the town is much impeded.
"Now that another session of the
legislature is soon to come it is well
to look up the matter once again and
see if something cannot be accomplish
ed toward getting gas put in here.
There are representatives to elect and
men should be selected for these posi
tions who will make a fight with the
end in view that Greenwich shall have
what it wants and needs gas. Then
committees might be appointed to wait
upon the committee of the legislature
to further this demand and either in
duce the company with the franchise
to go ahead or leave the field open to
others." Greenwich Graphic.
Wilton Woman AVants Divorce.
Papers were served this week by

LOCAL YACHTSMEN
CLOSING SEASON
MANY BOATS OUT FOR THE COLD
WEATHER. N
The Few Remaining Are Enthusias
tic Fishermen and Will Wait
Until the Snow Flies.
There is but little doubt in the
minds of local motor boat men that
there will be some radical changes
in the rules which govern races un
der the auspices of the American
Power Boat Association, as so many
of them are clearly unfair to one or
another style of engine or boat.
Among the more glaring inequali
ties none show up more clearly
than the penalizing of a two cycle
over a four cycle engine, and on the
subject the last issue of the "Motor
Boat" prints the following, which
may prove interesting to our read
ers, as the boat referred to is a
Stamford creation:
"White Fox, the only boat equip
ped with a two-cycle motor," and
rated under the A. P. B. A. rule at
a much greater horsepower than her
motor was capable of developing,
natuially suffered in speed. This
year's rule greatly favors the four
cycle motor and proportionately
penalizes the two-cycle. White Fox's
running, with the exception of one
round, was extremely regular, and,
in fact, this feature of regularity
should be emphasized and given a
certain number of marks in future
events of this kind."
The writer also has a good word
for the two-cycle engine, as regards
economy of fuel, and says: "It has
been generally supposed that the
two cycle motor is less economical
in fuel than the four-cycle,, but the
performance of White Fox, with a
two-cycle motor, which received the
third greatest marks, on a motor
overrated under the rule, would
seem to indicate that its economy is
at least equal to that of the other
type."
The uptown rooms of the Cori$
thian Yacht clubs are in the hands
of painters and decorators, and will
be ready for occupancy the first of
next week. The rooms, when com
pleted, will be very neat, clean and
attractive, and it . is expected that
the winter season will be the most
successful in the history of the club.
Plans are being laid for a series of
entertainments to be held during the
winter which will prove entertain
ing and interesting for the entire
membership. - -
Thewife of the lighthouse keeper
found herself on shore, last Satur
day afternoon, with nothing but a
small launch with which to make the
trip to the lighthouse, and a sea
running which was too much for her
frail craft.. Capt. "Lew" Scofield
promptly got his cat boat under way
and conveyed the stormbound lady
to her destination.
The Stamford Motor company's
new flyer, the White Fox II, is out
every pleasant day for trial spins
about the harbor. Her engine is
getting in good shape, and she bids
fair to be one of the fastest of her
class in the country when she is
properly tuned up.
A handsome speed boat was in the
harbor last Friday with a party of
five gentlemen on board. It is said
that one of the party who is a boat
builder, is looking for a site on
which to locate his plant, as he is
not satisfied with his present quar
ters. Announcement has been made
that the Herreshoffs" have designed
and are building a new class of rac
ing yachts for prominent members
of the New York Yacht club. The
new boats will be about sixty feet on
the water line.

Rushing Business Done by Consta
bles and Justice in Darien.
A large majority of automobilists,
the majority of whom were return
ing from Long Island, where the in
ternational Vanderbilt cup race had
been witnessed, were held up at Da
rien, last Sunday, for violating the
speed law.
The constables were kept busy
making arrests and previous records
in this line for one day's work ap
peared to be broken. Court was
held by Justice Willmott, Jr., on the
spot, and the usual fine of $10 each
was imposed. The owners or chauf
feurs of the machines settled the
damage, and went on their way.
BIG BLOW IN HARBOR.
Lively Work Saves Many Yachts from
Damage.
The heaywind from the southward
which struck the lower harbor on Mon
day afternoon kicked up a big sea in the
harbor, and for a time there was consid
erable hard work done by amateur skip
pers in looking after their boats.
Commodore Elliott's Madrine, Thomas
J. Pritchard's St. Elmo and Arthur
Isbell's cabin launch beside several
Other smaller craft dragged their anchors
and only by hard work on the part of
their owners and others did they escape
serious injury. Many of the little fellows
were badly scratched.
FROST IS NEEDED.
Sna&y Weather-- Will Drive- Chest
- nuts Off the Trees.
Those who like to go chestnuting are
looking forward for a frost, for the
present warm weather will not open
the burrs. There is no use going for
chestnuts until the air is frosty. The
ideal chestnut weather is a frost, fol
lowed by wind and rain; the frost serv
ing to open the burrs and the rain and
wind to knock the nuts from the trees.
It is useless to go for chestnuts near
the city for the small boy has already
gone up into the trees and clubbed off
all the burrs.
But those who care to go oft" into
the country will be rewarded for their
j trouble with a good bagful of chest
i nuts.
Sporting.
The base ball game of last Sunday
between the Danbury team and the
Stamfords resulted in a freezeout for
' . - .
the local players, tne score Deing
3-0.
"Norwalk base ball fans were very
much interested in the game at
Stamford, yesterday, between Dan-
; bury and Stamford. The Hatting
Townites administered practically
the same defeat to Stamford as the
Norwalks handed out to Danbury a
week ago Saturday. Stamford was
! shut out, the Hatting City represen
tatives getting three men across the
plate. Jack Dunleavy played in left
field for Danbury and deserves no
small amount of credit in the vic
tory of the team." Monday's South
Norwalk Sentinel.
Hibernians to Parade.
It is now several years since there
was a state parade of the Ancient Or
der of Hibernians, and there is con
siderable talk of having another parada
within a few months. The last parade
was in Wateroury, six yars ago, and
the next parade is likely to be held
in New Haven. The order has 8,500
members in this state, and as there is
a $3 fine for failure to attend a state
parade, it is expected that at least 7,000
men would be gotten out.
Rescued Boy From Drowning. .
