Onlcors Byrnes and Aliearn Raid a
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

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

Workmen Uneartn a Skeleton While
- DltrelniS a Cellar. - '
While a gang of men were digging an
excavation" for a cellar, corner of Oak
and Tyler streets New Iiaven, yesterday
afternoon, a skeleton was unearthed.
It was found only about ten feet be
neath the surface and about two feet
from an old well. Everything pointed
to foul play. The skeleton was doubled
up and looked as if some person or per
sons had been in a hurry to bury the
Ixxly. From appearances the skeleton
has been in the ground about twelve
years. The coroner was notified. This
s another of Connecticut's mysteries.

wil0wy',?n.d new play, entitled
"The World Against Her," held the vast
wuuience uy Tirtue of its domestic in
terest, its crowded incidents, its por
trayal of woman's love and its strong
contrast of virtue and vice. It tells the
story of a wife suspected bv her hus
band of inconstancy, owing to the in
genuity of a villian, and abandoned to
face the cruelty and scorn of the world.
Her struggles to save her child and her
misadventures in London, alone and
helpless, are graphically told. Through
out it all she remains pure and loyal, and
when ultimately her husband is con
vinced of her innocence, the audience
evinced how strongly she had won their
sympathies by breaking out in tumul
tous congratulations. Miss Kate Clax-
i"i me pars oi tne wne with na
tural tenderness and womanly grace,
and from the moment of her separation
from her husband to the end of the play
easily carried her audience with her.
