Happenings To-niffhl. Japanese Fete at Opera House. Japanese wedding at Opera House. Legislative Caucus at Hartford. Our Si a .3 Legislature. The Senate meets ia Hartford tc-day at 1.80, and the House JS to convene tomorrow. The Go a cant makes the patriotic appeal to the Senate, and espec-ia'lyto any sis of them, to join the seven who have all along been ready and an .'ious to b :eak the dead-lock and rescue out' state from popular cor-tempt. II' anv s'.:: of the seventeen democrats, it says, will decide to proceed with business, or will even take up nnd face i":e resolutions retelling to the pend-i >g dispute to the supreme court, then tae Connecticut dead-lock will be elided. In our opinion every one of .the seventeen is mo e than oae-third of the o^'n'on that this is the only sensible aod patriotic coarse to foHow. If now one-third of the senators will vote as at least one-thi .d of the opinion of them all inclines, then the racket is over and the self-respect oc Connecticut is in the way of restoration. Nevertheless the stronger p^obabi1!- •fies are that an ad journme it of both houses will take place to some time in January, in 1892, pending the decision •of the supreme court on the quo warranto case. The senate will wait until the house meets before fi.ing on the day of adjournment. Eoth houses will probably fix upon the same date. The senators have a caucus at noon and may decide to ask tbe house to call up the resolutions declaring the democratic state officers elected. They are now on the table of the house. The Japanese Fete. A full-dress rehearsal of the Japanese wedding was had at the Opera House last evening, under the direction of Mrs. Cram. The stage is set in gorgeous and chai-ecteribiic colors and ornamentations, and the Bridal Party and Wedding Tea. form a gay and most attractive picture. The entertainment opens at 5 o'clock this afternoon and continues throughout the evening. It is to be an entertainment of rare novelty and brilliancy, and it is to be hoped that the good ladies who have worked so hard and so zealously, will be rewarded by a full house. They'll Get Together. Our new Court of Burgesses are arranging to meet in a social aod informal way to the eiid of better knowing each other and to discuss any such affairs of state as may conduce to the .•growth, prosperity and permanent welfare of the Borough of Nor walk. Whether it will be in the nature of a private meeting at the residence of some one of the new Court of Burgesses, a banquet at the Hotel, or a sort of public Recept'on at the attractive residence of Warden-elect Kimmy, has not yet been definitely determined. Col. White's Condition. Colonel George M. White, assistant adjutant-general, is critically ill at his home in New Haven.

Robbed the Mails. Herbert Dorman, twenty-six years old, a mailing clerk at the Willimantic postoffice, was arrested yesterday for robbing the mails. The postoffice authorities suspected for six months that some one was stealing letters, but could not discover the thief. Inspector Bario was called in, and Saturday he sent a decoy letter containing four marked one-dollar bills, addressed to a Willimantic man. The letter failed to reach its destination and Inspector Bario charged Dorman with the theft. Dorman con-essed, but said it was his first offense. TERSE TALES OF THE TOWN.

London assumes to be the pivot, because of its size. Boston has no doubt it is the pivot on account of its intellect. Paris thinks it is the pivot because of its style. New York sometimes feels as if it were a pivot. There are pivots of one kind or another all over the world, and Norwalk may yet become one of them.

BOSTON, NOV. 10.—It is stated that during the six days of the run on the Five Cent Savings bank, $791,176 of the deposits were withdrawn. Everything is quiet at the institution now, and the amount ol withdrawals is not more than the average. Some of those who withdrew their deposits during the excitement have again deposited their funds with the bank. The run is now practically over. Oddities About Fleas. Nothing curious about a flea, eh? Let us see. Put one under a strong microscope. What a transformation! It seems to be clothed in armor "from head to foot," formed of brown, overlapping plates, that are so exceedingly tough as to be almost indistructi-ble. Its head is small and very thin, with a single black eye on each side, the rays of light scintillating through the tiny optic like sparks of fire. Pu-get managed to look through the eye of a flea with his powerful glass, finding that its surface diminished objects in size while it multiplied them in number—a man appearing like an army of fairies, and the flame of a candle becoming a thousand tiny stars. From the shape of its head, and for other reasons, the flea is supposed to use but one eye at a time. The offensive weapon of the little creature is composed of two palpi, or " feelers," two piercers and a tongue. When it feeds it stands erect, thrusting this sucker into the flesh, and will eat without intermission if not disturbed. The flea's manner of breathing is still undetermined, but it is tnought to be through two smail holes at the end of the palpi.—St. Louis Republic. The Engagement Illiig. The girl that has only a commonplace solitare engagement ring might just as well have said "No" to the old question. The girl who tries to look down on her, with her heart-shaped hoop of blood-red rubies of shimmering pearls, is an object of pity, just the same, and the victim of mistaken ideas, for the proper ring indicative of plighted troth must contain the features of the beloved giver set beneath a large, clear and perfectly flat diamond, in a frame of small surrounding emeralds, rubies, or sapphires. In exchange for this somewhat massive fetter the lady gives her fiance a pencil case of gold or silver, with a miniature portrait of herself, set in the end of the case beneath the large, clear diamond, in a circle of tiny jewels.—N. Y. Sun. STILL DEFIES-THEM. Won't Have a Meter Put In. Claims a Contract, Etc., A second Dorr war is apparently upon us. The facts were narrated in yesterday's DAILY GAZETTE, of the attempt of the Borough Water Commissioners to put a water meter into the office of ths Hour, and of Mr. Maples' peremptory refusal to let it be done. It is now said that open war is declared. Mr. Frank Street, speaking for the Commissioners, says it shall go in. Mr. Maples, with equal, if not a good deal more positiveness, declares that it shall not! Then the Commissioners threaten that if he does not allow the water consumed to be measured by their meter, it shall be shut off and he compelled to go without. To this, Mr. Maples, it is said, retorts that the Water Commissioners of the Borough of Norwalk have made a contract with him to furnish all the water needed to propel his printing press motor, at a specified price. That said specified price he has always paid when called upon, and it has been accepted by the Commissioners, and now" they have no legal right to interfere with his free and uninterrupted use of the same ; certainly not until after due and reasonable notice . and at the expiration of a current yea-:. To all the above, the Commissioners reiterate that they are legally charged with the duty of arranging rates for use of the Borough water; that such rates should be equal, just and uniform to all the consumers; that to determine the amount used, the meter is needful, and knowing their duty, they dare and will maintain, etc. Mr. Maples is in no way disconcerted. He is a well known master of the art of injunctions. It is understood that his attorney assures him that in "the eye of the law," he is "n aster of the situation." Should the Commissioners resort to forcible means to attach their meter to his moto/, or should they attempt to cut him off from its use, the courts would not hesitate to promptly restrain them by injunction. There is another feature of this locally exciting contest. In any event, a long and costly law suit is sure to follow any coercive measures resorted to by the Water Commissioners. It is true, the costs will not come out of their individ-ualfpockets, but from the Borough taxpayers and they will surely be restive, if not open in their hostility to piling up legal costs in any such unnecessary contest. On the other hand, Mr. Maples enjoys and delights in a law suit as much as in smoking a fifty cent cigar, and a suit would not be half as costly to him, in any event, as to our Borough; and then there comes in the element of pecuniary recompense and restitution to him, in the way of advertising. A spirited and earnestly contested law suit with the Borough Water Commissioners on this issue, could not be worth less as an advertisement, than from five hundred to a thousand dollars. To the Borough it would be a heavy and a total loss. Strong Sulphur Water. The New York Sun published on Sunday the first of its series of foreign letters from Mark Twain for which it pays some $250 per column. As it is copyrighted, we venture to copy out the following racy extract: After my first douche I went to tbe chemist's on the corner, as per instructions, and asked for half a glass of Challe water. It comes from a spring sixteen miles from here.lt was furnished to. me, but, perceiving that there was something the matter with it, I offered to wait till they could get some that was fresh, but they said it always smelt that way. They said that the reason that this was so much ranker than the sulphur water of the bath was that this contained thirty-two times as much sulphur as that. It may be true, but in my opinion that water comes from a cemetery, and not a fresh cemetery, either. History says that one of the early Roman generals lost an army down there somewhere. If he could come back now I think this water would help him find it again. However, I drink the Challe, and have drunk it once or twice every day since. I suppose it is all rigHt, but I wish I knew what was the matter with those Ro- False Alarm. Burgess Bowe was seen "double quicking" down Water street yesterday, where Ed. Sloan soon joined in the race, then came Reporter Thomas with a hop, skip and a jump, then the Italian boot-black, and then a half dozen nondescripts, with no particular business or interest in the affair, only half crazy to learn whether it was a dog fight, a water-pipe burst, or somebody off the dock. But it was nothing in the world but Isaac hurrying down to Hubbell's office to "make ouf'his quarterly pension papers, which he had forgotten all about since the 4th inst. —Great Bargains in MILLINERY.

Says the Chambersburgi Pa.; News : "Arlington's Minstrels, who appeared at Rosedale Opera House last evening to an appreciative yet critical audience, are certainly ' 'in it." Their comedians are extremely funny, and the vocal selections excellent. The specialties'in-troduced in part second stand prominently in the foremost line of modern minstrelsy. The company is without exception a first-class one. and the programme interesting, being rich in novelties and mirth-provoking qualities." In speaking of Niobe, which is to appear at the Opera House Saturday evening, Nov. 14th, the N. Y. Recorder says: "There are many reasons why this play, which was produced last night for the first time in this city, should make a good run. It is brimful of humor, moves at a merry pace, travesties many popular fancies, is justly satirical and in some points redolent of true wit." Humane Work. For some time past complaints have been made to officer Morehouse, of the Humane Society, of the character of the horses that were being brought into Cranberry Plains for sale and swapping purposes. The indignant citizens of that quiet locality finally demanded that something be done to stop the disgraceful condition of things, and officer Morehouse sent for D. W. Thrall of Hartford, the general agent of. the Humane Society, who promptly responded, and yesterday they visited that locality, The home of Stephen Wood was first visited, where it was claimed that his horses had been fed by the neighbors during his absence, he having left them without food for a week. Two houses were found, one of which was a mass of warts and appeared to be suffering terribly. Both horses were promptly shot. The officers next visited Gershom Fillow's, where they found a horse unfit for use, which was also shot. While the officers were making their investigation they were informed by the residents, of the disgraceful swapping and selling of these poor, broken down horses, which were brougldTthere from outside the state-, and sold there on Sunday. The officers will hereafter keep a look-out for these parties, and arrest them on sight. It is also stated that they are in receipt of complaints from residents near the Elm Grove store, of an ex-minister who has been cruelly treating a horse and cow, which they will at once investigate. . Practice Makes Perfect. The locomotive drivers on the New England railroad west of Hartford, after a few days more practice,bid fair to solve the problem of two trains going in opposite directions, passing each other on a single track; it is true that so far the result has been smashed locomotives, splintered freight cars, and broken heads and limbs of trainmen, but still they persevere, and if constant trials will make the effort a success, they seem bound to attain it. Seriously, the almost daily report in the newspapers of head on collisions of freight trains on this road, by which locomotives and cars are smashed, and trainmen injured, seems to call for immediate action on the part of our railroad commissioners. The fact is that too many trains are run on this road with only a single track west of Hartford, to be run with safetyat any rate, with such arrangements as now exist for their movement. It seems to outsiders that the road should be double-tracked as soon as it can be done, and that until the new track is completed, that the trains should be signaled at each station by competent telegraph operators, and that all trains should slow up for such orders when approaching a station. If existing regulations are much longer continued, it is to be feared that some terrible accident will be the result. The length of the main line of this road from Boston to Fishkill on the Hudson river, is 216 miles, of which line 134 miles is in this state. The length of double track on 'the entire line is 108 miles, so that a little less than one-half of the main line is double tracked. ^ ..., — — Returned to His Old Home- Yesterday afternoon Frank Sherwood, a shoemaker, employed at Bridgeport, hired a horse and buggy at Gregory's livery stable, to drive to the Silas Tuttle place at Cranberry Plains. When he arrived at his destination he blanketed the horse and hitched him, as he supposed, to the fence in front of the house. When he came out of the house to start home, sometime later, the horse was missing. The hitching strap hung to the fence, where it had been tied, but no trace of the horse could be found. Mr. Sherwood and Charles Tuttle procured another turnout and drove up Chestnut Hill as far as the Finch Bros, residencej and then returned to Norwalk, where Sherwood reported his loss, and the police of the neighboring towns were notified to look out for "the horse. . " The horse was a young bay, which Silas W. Gregory purchased last May from the "Hub." Barnes estate, and as Barnes lived just above the Tuttle place, Mr. Gregory at once thought that the horse in. some way had gotten loose from the fence and wandered up to its former home. His surmises were correct, as this morning the horse was returned from the Barnes place, where he had gone last evening, and where he had been taken care of. A young lady who is stopping at the house said that she was standing at the front gate, when a horse with a blanket over him, came tearing up to the gate and stopped. She took him to the barn where he was unharnessed and recognized by some of the men folks as the horse which had been sold to Mr. Gregory last spring. Sherwood and Tuttle had passed the Barnes place m search of the horse, a short time after the horse had arrived there, but did not stop. It is thought that in hitching the horse to the fence Mr. Sherwood neglected to properly snap the hitch line on the bit, and the horse finding that he was frefej started off up the hill to his old home. , - ' - SECRETARY BUSK'S KEPOBT. rhis Year's Increase in Agricultural j Products Not Less Than #700,000,000. WASHINGTON, Nov. 10.—Secretary Rusk| tias presented to the president his annual feport as secretary of agriculture. Tie J report calls attention to the especially aoticeable feature regarding the crop yal-aes of the present year. The secretary jstimates the probable increase in the ralue of agricultural products for 1891 over I890 at not less than $700,000,000. Reviewing our exports and imports of agricultural products, Secretary Rusk states that during the first three months " of the present fiscal year our exports in cereals alone have aggregated in value Dver $76,000,000, adding that the indications are that the sales abroad of the surplus Erom our farms will, during the present pear, largely exceed those of any previous fear. He notes the increase by some $28,000,000 in the imports of agricultural products during the first ten months under the present law, by comparison with the same ; period during the last year of the old law,., but emphasizes the fact that the increase j is confined largely to articles not competing with home products, such as sugar, tea, coffee, etc. He notes a decrease in tobacco from $17,000,000 to $6,000,000; a falling off in foreign barley of nearly $3,500,- 000; in eggs, $1,250,000; in horses a falling off of nearly $1,500,000, and a gradual decline in the imports of all live stock. He congratulates the country upon the success attending the practical application at the department experiment station in Kansas of the alcohol process perfected in the laboratory of the department last year for the extraction of sugar from sorghum. "There seems to be no reason," he says, "why wt should not therefore look forward with confidence to the day when the (100,000,000 paid by American to foreign producers for sugars should be turned into the pockets of our own people.'* TENNESSEE'S REIGN OF TEKKOJK. The Situation of Affairs in the State Is Becoming Alarming. NASHVILLE, Nov. 10.—The situation of affairs in Tennessee is becoming alarming. Suspicious communication is being held between the east Tennessee miners and the miners of Kentucky, Alabama - and Virginia. The hardy mountaineers who released the convicts haves worn that the governor shall not rebuild the stockades, and that if he sends the convict? back to the mines they will be butchered in cold blood. # It has been stated officially that the rebellion of the miners, so far as estimated, has damaged the commercial standing or east Tennessee to the amount of millions of dollars. Two town comr^fffBS^OtiS with $50,000,000 capital and located at Bristol, the other with $100,000,000 capital and located at Elizabethtown—have refused to enter the state, claiming that the state, not being able to protect its own Interests, cannot protect the interests of capital. v^pi Cut the Agents' Heads Off. ORAN, Algeria, Nov. 10.—The dispute between the French government and the sultan of Morocco, in regard to the possession of the oasis of the Touat, has been complicated by the fact that the inhabitants of that part of the Sahara have decapitated five agents of the sultan sent to treat with them and to collect tribute. The French garrison of Tlemceis is en route to Touat, and will occupy the oasis in the name of France. The sultan of Morocco is said to be very angry at the massacre of his emissaries and to be determined to punish the murderers. Should he take steps to do so, the Moorish troops" may come into collision with the troops from Tlemceis. -..'5 Aimed to Cripple, but Killed. • SAT/TNTAS, Colo., Nov. 10.—A deputy sheriff, who was trying to serve a writ for robbery on a woman and her three sons, who travel about the country in a wagon, had a terrible fight with them yesterday. When he hailed the woman and told her he had come to arrest her for stealing, her boys opened fire on him, riddling his clothes with bullets and wounding him In the arm and leg. The woman seized an ax and started for him. The sheriff, drawing his revolver, fired. He aimed to cripple her, but the bullet went through her heart, killing her instantly. WORLD'S FAIR NOTES. A proclamation has been issued by GtoY* srnor Pattison calling on the citizens of Pennsylvania to join in making the display at the World's Columbian exposition of the state fully worthy of the commonwealth. All of those who wish to participate are asked to communicate at the^r earliest convenience with Benjamin Whitman, the executive commissioner of the* World's fair managers of the state, in order that he may obtain from them whatever views they have to offer on the subject and arrange for suitable space for the exhibits of the state. M. Favette, chief of the ministry of the French commerce, will probably be the head commissioner from France to the Columbian exposition. He is the only offii-cial thoroughly informed about the Chicago fair. Sir Henry Wood, the British commissioner to the exposition, who recently visited Chicago, has made a report to his government. In concluding his report, which is exceedingly favorable to the exposition, Sir Henry Wood says that he has no doubt whatever of -its ultimate success. Florida's exposition building will be a full sized reproduction of Fort Marion, which was built at St. Augustine in 1620, pnd is believed to be the oldest building in the United States. It is of stone and covers a space of about 150 feet square. The walls are 20 feet high and 9 feet thick at the base. It is a rectangular structure, the interior court being about 75 feet square. Within the court are some twenty-four rooms. The reproduced structure on the fair grounds will be frame, covered on the outside with the phosphate rock bi Florida, to give it the appearance of stone.
