POLICE COJRT.
Thomas Mai ley Found Not Guilty of the
Charges llrou;ht by Agent t'olley.
The witnesses for the defense in the
Mai ley liquor trial were heard this
morning. Simon Brown, the bartender,
testified that he did not sell liquor to
O'Donnell ou Christmas day, neither
was the latter in the place, lie said
that about four weeks ago, O'Donnell,
Dillune and Fitzgerald did enter the
place, but he put theui out without
giving them any drink. Joseph Phelun
corroborated Brown's evidence . and
further strengthened it by saying that
when the men wer put out O'Donnell
swore he would get square. James
Fly nn, who one of the witnesses for
the prosecution, swore was present
in the saloon on Christmas day, testified
that he was not there on that day.
Attorney Colley fougjit hard against a
forlorn hope ot conviction. Attorney
Root made a strong argument for his
client. Chief Egan was called in to
show up the record of Dillune and
O'Donnell and a wonderful criminal
record it was. A joking remark was made
that they were guilty of every crime but
murder. Judge Cowell promptly found
the accused not guilty of selling to
minors on Christinas day. On the
second charge he said the decision rested
on the truthfulness of the witnesses.
The record of the boys was a strong
factor in the case. " Individually he
thought that the boys did purchase the
iH'er but ludtcialiv he would give the
accused the benefit of the doubt and so
discharged him.
John Mack, who hails from Bristol,

SUPREME COURT DECISIONS.
Kilgnr w. Pinney Ihe Legal Town Agent
and Superintendent of Highways.
The supreme court judges were in
session at uarttord all day yesterday
and nanued down decisions in Water
bury cases as follows :
Edgar W. Pinney vs F. J. Brown ;
superior court is advised that Pinney is
the superintendent of highways in 'the
town of Waterbury and that Brown is
not town agent ; reasons by Andrews,
This case involved two questions, viz
Whether Edgar W. Pinuey or Robert
Fruin is the lawful superintendent .of
highways for the town of Waterbury ;
and whether Edgar W. Pinney or Fred
J. Brown is the lawful town agent for
the town. urious votes were passed at
town meetings and by the selectmen in
regard to filling these positions, but as
these appointments seemed to conflict it
was determined to bring the matter
into court to settle definitely who was
legally ent itled to the olhces in question.
It will be remembered that Robert
Fruin was appointed superintendent of
Highways at a town meeting shortly
aner cue uctooer election, s. w. Kel
logg was counsel for Pinney and L. F,
Burpee for Brown.
James Farrell vs Waterbury Horse
Railroad company; no error; reasons by
lorrence, J.
The plaintiff was standing on the
track directing workmen in a trench
dug under the tracks, and was iniured
by being struck by a car. The driver
saw him and shouted to bun when 150
feet away, but Farrell did not hear the
warning, ihe driver then paid no more
attention to Farrell until just before the
accident occurred, being busied with
removing the coupling pin so as to de-
tacu me norses from the car preparatory
to taking them around the hole.
The lower court decided that on the
facts found the defendant was negligent.
and that the plaintiff was guilty of con
tributory negligence, and the court as
sessed only nominal damages. An ap
peal was lanen. ine piaintitt claimed
that he was not negligent; also, that if
he were somewhat negligent, his negli
gence was not the proximate cause of
the injury. Webster and O'Neill for the
plaintiff; Terry and Bronson, for the de
fendant.
John O'Brien vs Miller & Strickland;
no error: reasons bv Andrews. C J.
O'Brien was injured by one of Miller
s ocricKianu s teams in a runaway ac
cident, and brought suit. The lower
court rendered a decision for the defen
dants. ,
Louis M. Meyer vs Angelo C. Burritt!

-.' ' : BOOK. .' '
In the last monthly report of the state
board of health JJr undsiey saysi in dis
cussing the question : "What Is a Pub
lic Funeral?' "that the phraseology is
unfortunate and open to criticism, be
cause the expression 'public funeral' is
a misuse of words, and therefore the
words being wrongly employed carry
with them a wrong meaning.- It would
be better if the law was expressed thus
There will be no funeral ; or, there shall
be no public burial of any person dead
from small-pox. etc. Tbe obvious ob
ject in making such a regulation is, to
reduce to the minimum, the risk of
spreading infection. The best means of
doing this are by disinfection and isola
tion. If isolation of the patient was
necessary before death, the isolation of
the body is no less bo after death. If if
was important to prohibit visitors to the
sick person and even to the house in
which he was sick, lest the infection
might be carried from the infected
things therein, it is not the less impor
tant to exclude visitors from the infect
ed house after death, and until the
Frocesses of purification be completed,
t teed not be understood, however,
to prohibit a clergyman from holding
any brief religious service, if it would
be a consolation to the friends, in the
infected house, in the presence only of
those who have already been exposed
by living in the house, prcvided no
others are admitted, and provided
always that the clergyman himself take
an necessary precautions against spread
ing the contagion.

Apparent Wreck ot the Proposed State
Base BaU Lesgue.
Unless the signs so clearly shown at
yesterday's meeting fail, the proposed
state league of base ball clubs is a
wreck. The rock upon which it split is
the question of a guarantee to visiting
clubs or a large percentage of the gate
receipts. This rock was struck bows
on, and the stately ship which was ex
pected to sail so majestically through
the season has a big hole stove in her
bottom. If she doesn't sink entirely out
of sight before she can be rescued, it
will be a surprise.
The meeting was held in Hartford,
with delegates present from Hartford,
Waterbury, Bridgeport, New Britain,
Plainville and Bristol. After consider
able informal talk, and reports from the
delegates as to the readiness of the vari
ous cities to enter the league, a perma
nent organization was effected.
Nearly all the afternoon was spent in
discussing the division of gate receipts.
The plan which had been generally dis
cussed, and which it was supposed met
the approval of all the clubs, was for
the home club to take 55 per cent and
and the visiting team 40 per cent, the
other o per cent to go into the treasury
as a guarantee fund to finish the season.
T. H. Hayes said Waterbury could not
agree to that plan, and would withdraw
if it was adopted. "He insisted that the
old method of a fixed guarantee was the
only thing Waterbury would agree to.
All the otiier delegates favored the per
centage plan. Some of them wavered a
little, however, and seemed inclined to
accede to what Mr Hayes wanted, but
the Hartford delegates remained firm
They said if the fixed guarantee plan
was adopted they should withdraw from
the meeting. Mr Hayes said he should
do the same thing if the other plan was
adopted. No vote was taken and the
meeting adjourned, subject to the call
of the president.
ACCIDENT AND INCIDENT.
A IlrlHtol Italian's Family Thought to
.Have Keen on the Vtopla.
In September, 1889, Leo Renaldi of
Bristol, with his wife and two children,
returned to Italy to visit their friends
and spend the winter. In the spring
Leo returned, leaving . his family to
finish their visit and return early this
spring. Letters from his wife stated
that they would sail for New York
about the middle of March and, as no
word has been received from them, it is
feared they were on the ill-fated Utopia.
Mr Ronaldi is employed at the E. Intrra
hani clock factory.
All Shore Line trains yesterday after
noon and evening were sent by way of
Middletown over the Air Line and Val
ley roads. The interruption to regular
traffic was caused by the sinking and
shifting of a new iron bridge just east
of Leete's Island. There had been some
trouble there before, and the bridge is
now reported about a foot out of place,
probably owing to settling of the
foundations in a soft soil.
Two explosions startled the p ople of
Birmingham yesterday, but fortunately
they vere not attended with loss of lite.
At the Stpr Pin company a steam chest
burst, filling the room with steani,
causing some of the fifteen or twenty
girls to faint and slightly scalding
several. At the Derby Silver company
a compressed air machine gave way and
bits of iron and steel were sent flying
about the factory.
William Houlihan, aged 28, insane,
strayed away from his father's home in
Birmingham last evening, and no trace
of him has been found, although con
stant search has been made since his
departure. Houlihan has been in the
asylum at Middletown for a number of
years, but recently has been at home.
