Some time since Charles Schlee open ed a butcher market in BridecDort. Schlee was a bright young man and his outlook for success was most tavorabie. He soon worked up an extensive trade and all his customers were pleased with his manner of doing business. Money commenced to roll in rapidly, so fast in fact that a wall street stock broker would have been startled. So much prosperity was more than Schlee could stand, and he began an unenviable career which quickly culminated and nearly cost hituJiis life, lie sought the company of women, it is said, and was not long in selecting one who was willing to spend his money. Schlee's conduct was brought to the attention of the public Monday morning. At an early hour an attempt was made to stab him to death. The name of his assailant will probably never be known, aa he refuses to divulge much about the matter. One story has it that he was standing on the corner of Water and Union streets with several companions shortly after 3 o'clock. On the opposite side of the street were a trio quarreling. Schlee was slightly intoxicated and in vited them to come across the street. They did so and an altercation ensued. In the melee that followed, one of the men pulled out a murderous looking knife and made a number of savage lunges at Schlee. The latter wore a heavy overcoat and this undoubtedly saved his life. The assailant finally made a stab at Schlee's throat, cutting a slight gash under the left cheek. His coat was cut in strips. LOCAL L.1S.

COMMUNICATIONS. Editor of the Democrat : Sir : The writer of these lines was among the many interested, listeners who some three weens ago miea tne rooms or the loung Mens catholic Literary association on the occasion of Rev Father Mulcahy's lecture on "The Passion Play" at Obex Ammergau. It was a matter of general regret at the time that the rooms were not large enough to admit a much larger audi ence, for the lecture was admirable in all respects. The subject was certainly one of unusual interest, relating as it does to the most memorable and impor tant event in all christian history. Then too, the masterly and very interesting manner in which the subject was handled, both in a literary and scenic sense, made it cause tor regret that the general public was not able to enjoy so great a treat as this lecture proved to be. The writer has been in hopes that some of the societies attached to the church of the Immaculate Conception would see the propriety of inviting Rev Father Mulcahy to deliver this lecture in some large hall, preferably the City hall, at some early date, the proceeds to be devoted to such purpose as the reverend gentleman might select. Thinking, Mr Editor, "that a word to the wise is enough, 1 am Respectfully xours, A Delighted Listener. A Question.

Saya Governor mil Is Welcome to all tb Connecticut Criminals Ha Can Accommodate la New York. The refusal of Governor David B. Hill of New York to honor a requisition from Morgan O. Bulkeley, for Charles Fardon, who is wanted here for bur clary, is the sensation of the week among politicians at rtarttora ana throughout the state. Mr Bulkeley was found in the execu tive chamber in Hartford this morning and when asked by a democrat re presentative if he had heard of Gov ernor Hill's action, he replied : "I have not heard anything officially.' WMien asked what action he would tube in the matter, he said: "Probably I shall take no further action : although I may give Governor Hill a Diece of my mind. I shall very likely state to him that if he wants to make New York a dumping ground for Connecticut criminals we have a num ber more that we can send down, to which he is welcome. I think the people of this state can spare Governor Hill manv criminals most of whom, by the mt. come from his state. I am not anxious to bring theia back and shall not order out the militia to invade New York. "Governor Hill and the New York democracy have made several attempts to run the politics of Connecticut and suppose this is one of them. It does n disturb me in the least. Otlicer Dodds returned from New York on the 1 :20 train this afternoon He was provoked at not being able to tret his man. Fardon was remanded un til Saturday, ana it is tne general opin ion that he will be discharged. Officer Dodds colled on Inspector Byrnes before leaving New York this morning. He would not sav what took place at the meeting. Fardon. when interviewed by a re porter vesterday, denied that he com mitted the crime, and says that he as sinned the name of Munson for no other purpose than to prevent his wife from learning of his whereabouts. Governor Hill Explains. Albany, Feb 24. Governor Hill re fused to recognize Governor Bulkeley without examining into the case. To a Sun reporter the governor said be could not grant or recognize the request as being in any way official. Governor Morris had been duly elected by the peo ple of Connecticut, and had even been recognized as governor by the senate. If the people of Connecticut wanted the body of Fardon they must get it through Governor Morris. Governor Hill went on to say : "It was a piece of effrontery for Bulkeley to appear before the legis lature, and" had I been in control, in stead of making a speech which he had no right to do, he would have been occupied in getting out. He holds pos session of the executive chamber to-day by force and by virtue of the Chandler and Tom Reed'spirit of forcible usurpa tion. Connecticut is the worst minority ridden state in the union, and it would seem as though nothing short of a revo lution would give the democrats their lights there." Bulkeley's Letter to Hill. Hartford, Feb 25. At 1:45 this afternoon a letter of which the follow ing is a copy was mailed at Hartford : State of Connecticut. Hartford, Feb 25, 1S91. Governor David B. Hill, New York: Dear Sir. Understanding from your official action as just reported to me, that criminals from sister states and especially Connecticut are safe from arrest and return for prosecution when they have entered the irate of the citv ot reiuge emoracea oniy by your jurisdiction, I desire to inform you that in the Connecticut state prison there are 200 convicts that Connecticut can safely, and perhaps with propriety turn over to you. I have no doubt but everyone would prove loval subjects of the state of New York, and ready to avail them selves of the protection of its executive. Express trains are frequent. Awaiting your orders to forward such, 1 remain, Yours Refpectfnlly, Morgan G. Bulkelet. Governor, ACCIDENT AND INCIDENT. Leonard ltettes Killed ICy Oil of Birch. Dose of Leonard Bettes, a New Boston young man, died very suddenly Sunday morn ing. He took by mistake a dose of oil of birch, for some harmless nostrum, and a fatal result followed. A companion who also took some of the oil was made sick enough to vomit, which saved his life. Young Bettes was an employe of the ureenieat company ot winsted. Yesterday morning Charles V. Eastty, formerly a printer on the Hart ford Courant and vestryman of St Thomas' church, Hartford, left a letter in the counting room of the Brooklyn Eagle and quickly disappeared. The letter was a long one, confessing sins, asking forgiveness of all and stating that the writer intended to kill himself. 'having committed the unpardonable sin of adultery, which broke up my once happy home in Hartford." Three fingers of the right hand of Mabel Crittenden, four-yearold daugh ter of Edward Crittenden of Watertown, were chopped off Monday with an axe, by her little brother Samuel. A boat of that peculiar type known as a "lilock island double ender ' was found bottom side up on the beach, be tween Lyme and Niantic yesterday. Both foresail and mainsail were set and the sheet of the latter was jammed in a cleat. Everything except one oar had been washed out of the boat, and as she had no name, there is no cue to her identity. The general supposition is that she upset in a squall and that her occu pants went to the bottom. The boat had evidently been floating about for several days. To-morrow the three year old child of Charles LeCourt of Revere, Mass. will be buried in Forestville. The grand parents of the child reside there and are well known people. There is consider able mystery attached to the death of the boy, which the Revere authorities have failed to unravel. The father be lievea that the boy was poisoned with arsenic. A few days ago every member of the family, with the execution of Daisy, the 15 year old daughter, was taken violently ill. Phvsiciana summoned and all but Arthur recover ed. The father is still confined to his bed, but is on the road to recovery. Mrs LeCourt is also recovering, but is very weak. Nothing can be learned from tha family, but it is thought there was an attempt on the part of some member of the family to poison all the others. An autopsy has been held on the body of the child but the exact cause of death will not be known for several days as the contents of the stomach will have to be subjected to analytical treatment. Dr Harris is of the opinion that death was caused by cheese ooisoninc from the aconite of quinine taken into the stomach. . AMUSEMENTS. . ' I "The Charity Ball." The Charity Ball" was iven Its initial performance here last night, in the opera house, before a highly appre ciative audience. The play is in four acta with strong situations, bright comedy, tender pathos, and a growing interest in tne story from the start until the third act, in which the authors. Messrs Belaaco and DeMille, show their full strength. There is in the midnight scene in the rectory an intense pathos wnicnmovea many to tears, it was plain that the action, sentiment and situations were wrought out by the same skillful hands that gave us "The Wife" which has won prominence among the best plays of modern literature. The com pany included many artists well known here, and was the strongest of any seen here this season. Boyd Putnam, Henry Herman, T. H. Burns, A. W. Gregory, Misses Ruth Carpenter, Francis Guant. Ethel Greybrooke and Eliza Logan all did much toward makins the play the unqualified success it was. Walter Thomas, a New Britain boy, and Miss Bessie Tyree, .assumed the juvenile roles in a charming manner. "Cnsper tlio Yodler." Chas T. Ellis "Casper, the Yodler" has become here almost as popular as Emmet's "Fritz" did. A tremendous audience greeted him last night and be stowed hearty expressions of approval throughout his performance. Mr Ellis' methods are original and show quality and merit not possessed by others in the same line of work. His personation of three characters has a good deal to do with the development of the story and affords him ample opportunity for the display of his specialties. Washington Press.
