Ane unusuany light catch ot shad is the principal topic of discussion among nie luuai nbn ueaiers. At ess iiaven, where the seine men ought to catch 25 to 40 a day, they rarely get more than three or four, At the Connecticut river the catch is small, but larger than in West Haven. The largest catches re- ported along the shore are at Clinton, where the pounds are having a fairly good season. The fish are much smaller than usual, in addition to their scarcity, The long continued easterly wind is the cause of the poor year.

Frow, 137 Bank street lKa FIGHTERS IX COURT. Onlcors Byrnes and Aliearn Raid a Sporting ltosort. Monday night the police received word that preparations were being made for a dog light to take place about midnight on the Abrigador. Officers Byrnes and Ahearn were detailed to make an in vestigation. Shortly before 1 o'clock while passing a house on Brennan alley they heard the yelping of excited dogs and unceremoniously entered the build ing. The sounds came from a room on the upper floor and before the crowd of interested spectators were aware that anyone was in the building besides them selves the onicers rushed in. Almost lm mediately the lights were extinguished and in the scramble that followed the men escaped, two of them jumping from the window upon a pile of stones fifteen feet below. The officers identified some of the men and last night all were ar rested. In c urt this morning they gave their names as Daniel Coughhn, Patrick Collins, Patrick J. Kelly, William Phe- lan and James Murphy. Cousrhlin said he was going home when he heard the dogs squealing and went into the house. He had been there only a tew minutes when the officers arrived Kelly said he was in bed when he heard the noise and went out to investigate. tie was only partly dresseil and wore only one shoe. The others had nothing to say. Judge Bradstreet imposed a line ot and costs in each case. All took an apiMal. Last night when the officers went to arrest Couerhlian'and Collins, both of whom are minors, they found them in Patrick J. Kelly's saloon ou Pleasant street. He was prosecuted by Agent Colley this morning for allowing minors to loiter and fined S0 and costs. He took an appeal. tJKADK GROSSING I.KGISLATION Two Estimates of the Cost of Remov ing the CuosKlnsgs. ine railroad commissioners are, it is supposed, preparing what the senate asked them for the other day their es timate of the cost of removing all the grade crossings in the state. The report will be ready, it is probable, by next Tuesday. The estimate made by the railroad commissioners in 1885 that it would cost $6,220,000 to abolish grade crossings is"now admitted to le an error, due to their enormous estimate of aver age cost. It was then $5,000 per cros sing. This figure is now enlarged to say 35.000, as they have had considerable more experience with this work since 1885. In round numbers there are 1,200 crossings, it would cost S4)3,uuu.uuu to remove them on the supposed average of expense. The Consolidated road would he mulcted in from twelve to $15,000,000 or more. ' Could any road stand this? is a question often asked. On the other hand it is feared that the real effort is to prevent any legislation on grade crossings this session. If suc cessful this would leave the law as it is. This course has some friends. The ad vocates of the pending bill say that all the crossings need not be removed in any one year indeed cannot be; that there are some costly ones which could be avoided by a slight and inexpensive change of railroad layout and that there are some that cannot be removed, but can best be provided for otherwise. JOHN MOHAN liADIA" HURT. MIohaol Klein Arrested Suspected of Hnvliitf Hurt the Victim. About midnight Officer Stormont found John Moran, aged twenty-seven, an employe of the New York, New Ha ven x Hartford railroad shops in a yard at the corner of Carlisle and Liberty streets, New Haven, kicking and shout ing like a madman. Eight men were trying to hold him down. The patrol wagon was summoned and the man taken to the hospital. At 1:30 this orning Michael Klein was arrested for having injured Moran. He acted very suspiciously, and it is believed that he kicked Moran in the groin, inflicting a dangerous if not a fatal wound. Moran was almost insane from pain, and was so violent that no examination could be made. AV. II. Itui'iMim's Successor At the meeting of the Ore Bed Mining company at Lakeville yesterday, Milo is.

In many instauecs whole fami lies were taken sick, whilo iu others only a few members Buffered from tho strange disorder. In this way the cause of the trouble was traced to the vanilla lee cream sold at the festival. Tho physicians express but si ight hopes for the recovery of thirty-four of the vic tims, who partook of largo quantities pf tho vanilla cream. Thoy are ignorant of any known remody for the disorder, and all they c an do is to administer drugs that will make the patient more comfort, able.

Tho cream was made by John Tyler, who says that nn me exception or tne liavorins ox- tract, similar ingredients were used in the manufacture of tho other creams Ko one who partook of any other flavor except vanilla at the festival suffers, ancl coroner rsruee is oi tne opinion that the E olson was In tho vanilla extract. He as obtained some of it and will also analyze It. All business has been sus pended in the town on account of tho artalr. Ex-tJovernor Waller Declines.
