Ward and Alyse, children of Dr. Gregory, are ill with the measles. —I. Hall, piano and furniture mover Office and residence, 106 Main street. F. J. Mallory and wife and Mrs. De-los Culver are in town. Misses Mary and Emma Frank went to Bridgeport, to-day, for a visit with friends. - Quite a large delegation of Bridge-porters were present at Grace church dedication last night. A meeting of the Commissioners on the estate of George Dann, was held in New Canaan, yesterday. The Italians still hold the fort, and the probabilities of a settlement seem to be about as far off as ever. The'postponed run of Pioneer Hook and Ladder Company will be held tomorrow night at 8 o'clock sharp. The chart for the Walter J. Hall concert which was advertised to open on Saturday will open on Thursday instead. Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Watkins entertained last night, Bishop Williams, Mr. Watkins' father, and Mrs. Dr. Page, Mrs Watkins' foster mother. —If you want your carpets cleaned, have them done at the Norwalk Carpet Cleaning Works, 14 Knight street. Perfect satisfaction guaranteed, lw-84 Mr. Harry Benedict, who has been seriously ill for some time, is reported convalescing slowly, and is likely to be out soon should there be no relapse. Dr. Gregory has commencedthe renovation of his new purchase, the Curtis place on West avenue. The old front porch was the first thing to be razed. Stoning of trains on the Danbury and Norwalk division, near Wilton, have been frequent lately, and the authorities have been asked to try to detect the culprit. This morning Engineer Wood and his assistants went to Elmcrest and devoted considerable of the day to laying out building lots which will soon be thrown upon the market. Finney & Benedict's new delivery wagon, the latest addition to the rolling stock of Norwalk business men, was out to-day for the first time, and was greatly admired. - . Master George Moore, of the Bridgeport surpliced choir, won enthusiastic admiration at Grace church dedication, because of his high, clear and melodious soprano voice. Miss Helen Smith effected a lease yesterday of the Andrew Selleck place on Mott avenue, and will at once move out of the Carter house so that Supt- Hanford can move in. Mr. Jackson presided at the organ last night most creditably and the boys of the surpliced choir received unlimited praise for the delightful manner in which they acquitted themselves. "Billy" Banker looked all bunged up shortly after 10 o'clock last night, and must have suffered excruciating pain. It was explained by the fact that ne had taken another degree in ..Odd Fellowship. W •• c "Doctor" Timothy Hale£ performed a dangerous surgical operation yesterday afternoon by amputating a portion of the caudal appendage of a canine'. "Doctor" Tim says "that the operation in the end was short Mrs. Mary Hassett, widow of Thos. Hassett, died yesterday at Five Mile River. The sum of $134 was contributed last night towards the building fund of Grace church. , Mr. Evert Quintard is seriously ill, and, owing to his advanced age, his recovery is scarcely looked for. At last evening's meeting of Our Brothers lodge, I. O. O. F., five candidates received the third degree. Bishop Williams complimented the Grace church boy choir quite heartily on their success in singing last evening. To-night the adjourned yearly meeting of the fire police will be held in their rooms for the election of officers. The funeral services of Mrs. Ellen Fox were held this morning at St. Mary's church, Rev. Father Duggan officiating. —Charles E. Miller & Co. of Knight street have turned out five new business wagons during the winter, their latest one being a beauty for Finney & Benedict, the grocers. It88. Recent arrivals at the Norwalk Hotel include, John C. Taylor and wife, Hartford; George W. Husted, Newburgh, N. Y.; E. Marvin, New York; E. A. Gennett, Boston; Harry J. Davis, New York. The Bridgeport High school and the Norwalk Military Institute base ball clubs played a game at Seaside park Saturday. Bridgeport was victorious by a score of 17 to 7. Only six innings were played.—[Bridgeport Post. All but eighteen of the fifty new Bradley cars ordered for the Consolidated road have arrived, and when all are delivered the company will have GOO passenger cars. Only 150 are, however, ordinarily in use at one time. Several Norwalk ladies indulge these fine mornings in equestrian exercise and driving at an hour when most people are asleep. This morning, between 5 and 6 o'clock, a DAILY GAZETTE reporter saw five ladies thus enjoying themselves. ' Charlie Gregory went, "yesterday, to William Sherwood's, in Weston, where he saw the five legged calf, about which so many stories have been told recently. He found the animal alive and frisky, and the chief object of interest "for miles around." The freight and passenger business of the Housatonic railroad has shown such a steady and material growth of late that a number of new cars and locomotives will be required to meet the company's necessities. These have been ordered and will be delivered within a few weeks. A large number of Norwalk's first citizens, without regard to denominational differences, were present at the Grace church dedication last evening. Among those earliest to arrive were Mrs. Charles F. Osborne and Miss Julia Lockwood. Rev. Dr. Noble was also an interested auditor. Directors who do not actively manage a road cannot be held liable, is the ground on which counsel for the indicted New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad directors-interposed demurrers at New York, yesterday. The arguments on the demurrer will be heard Friday. It is to be noted that the surpliced boy choir, which sang last night at the Grace church dedication, was the choir which is to sing there regularly. There were but three Bridgeport lads in the choir during the church service. Several members of the Bridgeport boy choir were present and favored those who remained after the church services were over with quite an enjoyable concert of sacred song. While the people were returning from the Grace church dedication last evening, a number of them were insulted by a crowd of loafers who had congregated in front of Louis Potter's "Orient." In justice to Mr. Potter we would state that he was absent at the time, else some of them would have been severely dealt with. Mr. Potter assures us that in the future loafers will give the "Orient" a wide berth. Miss Maud Workman of Belden avenue, graduated last week at Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York, as a trained nurse, with the highest honors. She was immediately put in charge of the principal ward of the hospital, containing over thirty patients. This worthy and successful young lady has also received a very flattering offer to go to Europe this summer with a wealthy patient, which she is quite likely to CHURCH DEDICATION/f Pretty Little Grace Church Packed, A Delightful Success. w Even before seven o'clock last evening crowds of people were wending their way to sweet little Grace church eager to gain early admission. At quarter past seven the pews were all filled and rows of folding chairs wer set in the aisles and soon they wen filled. Promptly at seven-thirty the evening's programme was opened an^ in every detail, successfully and delight fully carried out. The processional; hymn was commenced by the surpliced choir, before leaving the robing room, and the subdued and far-a-way waves of the music, prior to opening the doori were most entrancing. The singings procession, accompanied by the Bishop' and clergy then marched up and down the main aisle and took tlieir places within the chancel, Mr. Edward M. Jackson performing at the organ with remarked success. Bishop Williams then read the dedication service- from the prayer book, and the order, as printed, was strictly followed throughout. The first and second lessons were read by the Rector's father, Rev. Mr. Hallock of South, Norwalk reading the collects. Rev. Mr. Watkins. in a few graceful words extended an earnest and cordial welcome to the people present to always feel at home in Grace church. Bishop Williams' sermon was a model of terse, plain and vigorous composition, and nothing could have been more delightfully appropriate for the occasion. His discourse was based on • the 96th Psalm, and was listened 'to throughout by the packed audience with * the most rapt attention. His closing, prayer, the benediction, and the recessional hymn, concluded this notable and noteworthy religious festival. Surely the Rector and people of Grace church have abundant reason for devout gratitude to the Great Head of the church, and the right to indulge in much self-congratulation at the exceptionally complete and delightful success of their dedicatory service. On Sunday, after morning prayers, the Holy Communion will be celebrated and Sunday evening at 7:30 the" usual services will be held and a sermon preached by the Rector, to which the public are cordially invited. The Show Now in Brooklyn. < The Barnum & Bailey show was moved from the Madison Square Garden to a lot corner of Halsey and Saratoga streets, in Brooklyn, Saturday night and Sunday morning. The elephants aided in getting the animals and chariots up the steep incline out of the garden by placing their foreheads at the rear of the vehicles and pushing. The show will stay in Brooklyn one week, and will then begin its one-day stands, starting in Jersey City. Peter O'Brien. This name invariably ' 'strikes terror to the foe" when its owner fills up with tanglefoot. Peter is a hatter by trade and a bummer by occupation, paradoxical as this may seem. Last Friday night, when the firemen were at work on the O'Brien mansion, in Center avenue, he benevolently insisted upon " putting a head" on one of the firemen who, acting under Chief Pro witt's orders, was trying to cut away a part of the house in order to get at the fire. Yesterday afternoon O'Brien got drunk again and proceeded to "do up " the Italian shoemaker and the Chinese laundryman who are neighbors on Main street. While engaged in this pleasing pursuit Officers Adams and Morehouse captured him and started with him for the lockup. O'Brien opposed their humane efforts, tooth and nail, and when in front of Dwyer's harness shop all three fell to the sidewalk. Then Officer Adams applied the nippers, O'Brien was bundled into a wagon and the procession started with Officer Adams comfortably seated on O'Brien's stomach and Officer Morehouse distributed over the rest of him. This morning O'Brien was arraigned before Justice Coolidge and was fined $6 and costs, the whole amounting to nearly $15. Miss' Olive Fremstad, the beautiful young contralto, who is to make her first appearance in South Norwalk, at the Walter J. Hall concert, on Tuesday evening, May 5, is a native of Minneapolis, and is of Norwegian descent. She has but recently come to New York, and good judges there pronounce her voice to be phenomenal, both as to compass and quality. At a recent concert of the Liederkranz, she took the audience by storm. Herr Zollner, the leader of the society, said there had been no such voice heard there for years. :• • .. v ; : : r WHAT MISS SPINSTER SAYS.;. ! • That the coming athletic games of the Y. M. C.

That Mr. William G. Thomas Jr. is convalescing after two weeks of la grippe. That Bishop Williams' able and eloquent discourse at Grace church last i 'Veiling was thoroughly appreciated-by our Dr. Noble. That Bishop Williams, Rev. Mr. Watkins, Rev. Mr. Hallock and Rector Watkins occupied the chancel of Grace church last evening. That I might almost say that last night wae Grace Church night. The little church was crowded to hear Bishop Williams, and a correct analysis of the feelings of the little band who have fought so valiantly against obstacles, was joy at being once more unite l to worship God in the beauty of holiness. What a day for the dedication it was, nature was bursting into vernal bloom, and the bird orchestra all sounding notes of rejoicing and welcome; it seems as if it all conspired to be an omen of success for the little church. The exercises were very impressive, bringing tears to the eyes of many, and the fervent wish that the truthful utterances of Bishop Williams might be fulfilled to the letter and that by faith" ful, earnest prayer all could gain in grace and live.in unity and godly life. Down With the Dust. Something ought to be done by our borough authorities in the matter of having our streets uniformly sprinkled. It is both unhealthy and distressingly annoying to have the clouds of dust flying about, and the nuisance cannot be fully abated without it is done by public tax and authority. BASE BALL NEWS.

BURIED WITH HONORS. ThgirFuneral of Major John C. Kin-ney at Hartfojrd, i» The funeral of .the Jatei Majolv Johii C.- Kinney, commander of thie Governor's Foot Guard and postmaster at Hartford, was one of the most notable public and military funerals that have taken place in this state in years. At the house only the relatives and near friends were present. The casket was borne to the hearse by six of the letter carriers and then turned over to the Governor's Foot Guard and the six sergeants of the company acted as bearers. The twelve honorary pall bearers were as follows: Senators Piatt and Hawley; Col. Frank W. Cheney, president oi the Army and Navy club, of which Major Kinney was secretary; Judge Nathaniel Shipman of the United States court; Adjutant General Embler of the governor's staff; Dr. W. A. M. Wainwright; Chaplain Frank Wells of Brewster, N. Y. ; Judge Y. B. Chamberlain of New Britain ; Colonel John Tweedy, postmaster at Danbury; Samuel H. Seymour of New York ; Henry E. Taiutor, representing his Grand Army post, and Charles H. Clark, his associate for eighteen years on the Courant. At the armory the ceremonies were most impressive. The armory had been tastefully draped in mourning, the heavy folds of black being relieved by the stars and stripes of the national flag. Heavy black draperies covered the fronts of the galleries and fell in long masses over the side of the stage. The armory was packed to the doors, many being unable to gain admission. Rev. Mr. Braden read the Episcopal service and Rev. Leon Walker reviewed tHellfe Kistoiy^ftM'Treceasecl, paying" the highest tribute to his character as a man and friend. The funeral oration was delivered by General Joseph R. Hawley, who spoke of Major Kinney's qualifications as a soldier and journalist. When the procession formed to go to the cemetery these military organizations were in line : Artillery of Boston, Second Separate company Governor's Foot Guard, escorting hearse, Veteran corps, Governor's Foot Guard, the Robert O. Tyler post, Nathaniel Lyon post, Army and Navy club veterans, Thirteenth regiment, C. N. G., Sons of Veterans. Major George B. Fisher was marshal. A squad from the Foot Guard paid the usual military honor of firing three volleys over the grave. Tempest in a Tea Pot. Included in last night's audience in Grace church, was a woman from Silver Mine who missed her pocket book, and straightway came down town, reported her loss at police headquarters and was escorted back to the church by Chief De Forest who found the missing property partly under the seat which the woman had occupied. She made so great an outcry over what proved to have been her own carelessness that one would have had strange ideas respecting church-goers in general. 0 0 2 0 3 0 0 0 0 - 2 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0- • —George S.

HABTFORD, Conn., April 28.—Tiie senate met yesterday for the first time in the history of this session on a Monday. Nearly every senator was in his seat when Senator Pierce presented the following resolution -that; had been the theme of discussion- HE^iihe democratic whenever the senate shall adjourn for a longer period than five days, the president pro tem. is authorized at his discretion, to call the senate into session at any day earlier than such adjourned day, such call to be issued by him and served upon each senator by mailing a copy thereof to the usual postoffice address of each senator. The resolution was adopted without debate. Senator Seymour, chairman of the Select Senate committee in the investigation of the removal of Brigadier General Graham, made a long- speech in support of the committee's finding, emphasizing the fact that the governor was not amenable to the senate in this matter and had a right to remove Gen. Graham. In closing Senator Seymour declared that in his judgment Gov. Bulkeley had recklessly removed Gen. Graham without cause, but the senate or the courts had no power under the law to interfere with the governor in this matter. A protracted discussion ensued, participated in by nearly all of the senators, after which a vote was taken on Senator Pierce's motion to strike out a portion of the report with the following result: Those voting for were Senators Cleveland, Pierce, Twitchell, Hall, Holden, Fox, Gardner, Thayer, Robertson, Shumway, Ensign, Butler, Foster, Pin-ney. Those voting against were Garvan, Bridge, Mead, • Seymour, Houlihan, ^Palmer, Davies, Lyman and Clark. Senator Pierce then offered a resolution reinstating^ General Graham, with the same vote being cast as that for the last motion. Senator Pierce moved that the report appointing General Watson, be recalled from the committee to which it had been referred and rejected. So voted. The senate then adjourned until May 14. A Republican Sweep in Danbury. DANBUBY, April 27.—The city election to-day resulted in a complete victory for the entire republican party. They elected their entire ticket with the exception of one councilman in the Fourth ward, by an average maj ority of about 300 votes. Charles S. Peck was their candidate for mayor, his opponent being William H. Foley. Last year the democrats won the city election by a majority of 400 and this is the first republican victory. BROAD RIVER. Gilbert Horton has moved his family into the Borough and is now living on Main street, corner of Catherine. Joseph Cable, son of Judson Cable, is very ill with typhoid fever. The patient was first attacked by la grippe, which has changed to the more dangerous symptoms. Miss Anna B. Smith, who has been spending the winter m Ballston, N. Y., has returned to Norwalk, and is suffering from la grippe at the home of Jo-siah Kellogg. Miss Smith reports the fact that the people of Ballston enjoyed one hundred and three consecutive days of good sleighing the past winter. George Yerger, a step-son of Mr. Edward Berger, now occupying the Edward Taylor place, is a teacher of tie "manly art" in the Brooklyn Athletic club, and is now enjoying a vaca-' tion here.

A petition,in the hands of William L. James, is being circulated, praying that those in authority be solicited to grant a commutation of the death sentence of Scheele, the New Canaan murderer, to imprisonment for life. It is not known that Mr. James has received many signatures to this petition. The South Norwalk Water Works, in anticipation of some tough digging, for their pipe laying, have placed a boiler and steam drill in the St. John woods, near the picnic grounds.
