Price One Cent. Norw^ m THE FAVORITE HOME PAPER. Ipr" ps$.- MipeMent in all tMngs; Neutral in netting. n- §0 t. The Gazette has the largest circulation of any paper In Norwalk, and furnishes the lowest advertising? rates. S£f©'•1"-- Police vs. press. When approached yesterday by a Gazette representative relative to a recent burglary, which had been reported to the police, Chief Dann informed the reporter that it had been his intention to keep the matter quiet and not let the newspapers know of the affair. The burglary, however, was given away to a member of the press by one of the police force, and published. "We are of the opinion that Buch action on the part of Chief Dann is wrong. If the police need assistance they at once seek the aid of the newspapers, who gather the news of the state and outside world from day to day. If a horse is stolen or a robbery committed the press is the first to give it to the public, together with a description of the stolen property and the thief. The item is passed along each day from paper to paper until the thief and stolen property has been minutely described and read in every town in the state. By this assistance of the press the owner is often aided in regaining his property, and the police given valuable assistance. If an occasiou arises wherein the publication of a robbery or other item would tend to defeat the hand of justice, it is but necessary for the police to fully state the case to the press and request its publication withheld. Such confidence will never be violated by a true newspaper man, and Chief Dann need have no fear of such an imposed trust being .betrayed. But to attempt to keep an item of news from the press is wrong and rarely succeeds. Sooner or later an alert reporter is on the trail and publishes the facts, much to the chagrin of the police. The newspapers are indispensible to the police. The police are indispensible to the press. Why then, should they not work together in unison ? Some weeks since the Gazette called attention to the illegal sale of intoxicating liquors within the Borough limits, and commented thereon in unmistakable language, but nothing, was done by the police to stop it. In order to be of assistance to the new Chief, as well as to protect those who have paid their money for a license, we again call attention to the matter and remind Chief Dann that liquor is reported to be openly sold illegally in the second story of a building on Wall street, on Water street, on Franklin avenue, on Prospect avenue, on Chapel street, on Knight street and on Main street, all within the Borough. In addition to the above sale of liquor without license the Gazette would also call attention to the fact that liquor is said to be sold on Sunday by licensed saloons on Wall street, on Main street and on Water street. We are in possession of the names of these guilty parties, and a member of Chief Dann's force also has the names of a large number of persons seen coming out of these places on Sunday, all of which aie at his pleasure. Here is a great opportunity, Chief Dann. Will you do youi duty and stop this Sunday and illegal sale of liquor ? f Not Yet Captured. The condition of Mrs. Sarah Mori-arty, who was shot by an unknown man at her home on Huckleberry Hill, late Monday afternoon,is reported as being somewhat better of her injuries, but by no means out of danger. A search is > being kept up after the man who fired the shot, but he has not yet been apprehended. It isknown that he called at the house of Mrs. Geo. Barlow an<t asked for : i " something to eat. While Mrs. Barlow > went down cellar after the food the fellow suddenly disappeared. He was i seen later by Samuel Buttery who gave the alarm whereupon the man ran into _'f ; some woods near by. w The woods were surrounded and a strict watch kept . ~ until this morning, but the fugitive managed to elude his pursuers and es-cape. v'-S-The search will be continued, a posse ||| of about twenty-five men being en-gaged in the hunt.

Certain young ladies in town claim to have seen a well defined cross on-the moon Easter Sunday night.

USE DANA'S SARSAPARILLA,IT'S "THE KIND THAT CURES." A Sudden'Death. Mrs. Rhoda Sterling wife of Roswell Reed died very suddenly yesterday afternoon, in West Norwalk.

He hastened to her asistance, but before he could get her to the house she expired.

In the struggle he had caught hold of her shopping bag and on regaining his feet ran toward the depot, while Miss Risley ran toward her home. The man took the 8 o'clock train to New Haven. Deputy Sheriff Taylor was in the depot at the time, but as he knew nothing of the occurrence the man escaped. The fellow appeared to be about 22 years old and was dressed in a grey suit and derby hat. His description has been forwarded to the police all over the tate.

Lockwood, and selectman Osc^r Raymond met in the Court of Burgesses' room last evening, to discuss the inatter of the proposed.town court bill. Attorney Levi Warner presided, and Attorney James T. Hubbell acted as clerk. No agreement was reached looking to a united support of the bill, or the drafting of a new one. It appeared to be the sense of the attorneys from South Norwalk, that a city court would be established there, and the borough attorneys were of the opinion that one would be established here, thia result being reached after the failure of an agreement on the town court bill. It is understood, however, that the promoters of the latter bill will continue to "push" the same before the legislature.. . . Bead tiife GMrtfe. Lost His Head.

To-day the governor will send to the senate the nomination of Burton Mans-fiield of New Haven to succeed Mr. Seymour. ^ Who Will Pay Their Board^ Judge Howard J. Curtis, presided for the first time over the civil' Common Pleas court yesterday and heard arguments in a habeas corpus case brought bv Attorneys Walsh and JpEonnecker of Norwalk, for the release of George W. Booth and S. C. Lyon fr.onl the Bridgeport jail. Booth and Lyon were taken into custody on a body writ issued by Xiawyer Gray to recover a claim against them. The prisoners gave notice that they would take the poor debtor's oath and they did so. Jailor Wells, however, refused to let them go until Attorney Gray paid their board, whereupon the attorneys for Booth and L^on brought the habeas corpus proceedings against Sheriff Clarkson. The court will probably find who should pay the board of the two debtors and so order. The men men have beehin jail some time and the $3 pei' week for the board of each will foot up a considerable sum. The original claim for which Lawyer Gray sued them was a little over $100. Stockholders Meet. The special meeting of theN. Y. N. H. & H. R. It. fbr the purpose of ratifying the work of the board of directors in leasing several systems, notably the "Old Celony," was held in New Haven yesterday. ' It was a large meeting, 829,356 shares being represented. The voting on the different leases was done with one ballot for convenience sake, and the votes stood as follows : In fayor.of tbe resolution of the general assembly amending the charter of the road, 195,842. In favor of an act leasing the Providence and Worcester, 195,842. In favor of the lease of the Old Colony, 195,510. In favor of the lease of the Berkshire, 195,752. In favor of the lease of the Stock-bridge and Pittsfield, 195,752. In favor of the lease of the West Stockbridge, 195,605. Not a dissenting vote «vas cast. Judge Lynde Harrison then offered a resolution authorizing and empowering the directors to increase and issue the capital stock as far as was necessary. At this point the irrepressible Henry L. Goodwin of East Hartford, who owns just 10 shares, appeared on the scene and made his usual objections, holding that the Harrison resolution was out of order. The chair ruled against him and Mr. Goodwin took an appeal. By a vote the chair was sustained unanimously. The action of the stock holders places the directors in a position to perfect the most complete system between New York and Boston by land and water. MUSIC HALL.

This farce comedy contains topical songs, absurd situations, rough and tumble dancing and other essential elements of a pleasing performance. OPEKA HOUSE. A small but appreciative audience greeted Gilmore's band at the Opera House,"yesterday afternoon. It was a rich musical treat. The singing by Mme. Rosa Linde the contralto, was rapturously enpored as- was also that of Signor Tagliapietra. Lilly Dolgor-ouky, the violiniste, was very fine and-came in for a large share of applause. The music by the band was grand. The concert was deserving of a packed house. - OPERA HOUSE. "Lost in London," a melo-drama, was witnessed by an interested audience last evening. ISewton Beers is always an admirable actor. He was especially so last night in the character of Job Armroyd, the swart king. He is refined, hence thero was no raving or ranting in his portrayal of the deserted husband. He is forceful and thrilling, and in the pathetic moments of the play touching in the extreme. Lora Addison Clift, his leading lady, made a most satisfactory Nellie Armroyd, (Job's wife,) and Kate Romaine was equally pleasing in the part of Tiddie Draggle-thrope, a buxom Lancashire lass. There is a London coachman, a butler whose business is to be tired always, and asleep much of the time, a post boy, a domestic, (the pretty fiend with the inevitable feather duster,) some miners with picks and hat lamps, and a villain, betides other characters necessary to the rounding of the plo.t.

Danbury was victorious in athletic games at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium in Bridgeport last night; Bridgeport took-second place and Norwalk was relegated to third place.

Clark as scorer and Amos Mitchell as time-keeper/ Wildman of Danbury injured his right knee in making the pole vault. The evening concluded with a collation. " • Methodist Conference. Thp first meeting of the Methodist conference was held in Danbury last night and hundreds of members of the Epworth league, a flourishing society connected with the church, were present from all parts of the conference district. The meeting was in commemoration of the anniversary of the league. In the absence of the Rev. Dr. Bulk-ely of the Christian Advocate, and the Rev. Dr. Schell of Chicago, both of whom were to address the meeting, Bishop Ninde, who will preside at the conference, and Dr. D. A. Jordan of the Sixth Avenue church,, Brooklyn, made addresses. The conference is divided into four league districts, and their president, C. W.Brown of Brooklyn, of the Brooklyn district; A. S. Cavanagh, Brooklyn, of the New York District; D. G. Downey, Stamford, of the New York East district, and W. E. Scofield, Torrington of the New Haven district, read reports that showed 180 chapters, 35 Christian Endeavor societies and 60 junior leagues, with a total membership of nearly 17,000. , The singing was led by the Rev. W. A. Dayton of Brooklyn." The visiting members of the league left for their homes on special trains at the close of the meeting. The cojfctjBrence proper began thia morning. "Thirteen candi-dgt^ w^e 6samili6d iblt thfe mizilslftfy the Angler of the Seine. The old type of angler, according H Balzac, was silent, meditative and crusty. His descendant is, on the contrary, loquacioifs, closely observant of everything but his fly and line and carelessly amiable. Who would have dared address the hoary and respected Pierre when in the act of landing—for he really used to land something else besides tadpoles and old boots—or when cajoling with a fish from his time honored corner beneath the Pont Royal? No one, I venture to say, but the sharp tongued gutter urchin may chaff the seedy yet imperturbable individual who has succeeded him, and, what is more, he receives a return volley of repartee garnished with puns. Old Pierre, who was perhaps one of the best known figures 20 years back on the quays, breakfasted, dined and supped off his takes of Seine fish, which were mostly dace, carp, barbels and tench. He had a varied assortment of recipes in his possession, and many a cordon bleu has received a hint for cooking the finny tribe from this ancient fisherman. No one knew exactly where or how he lived or how he managed to obtain funds for the purchase of bait, yet he was always well supplied with the most expensive kind of gentles, greaves and paste, where his successor contents himself with roe and ill made flies.— Westminster Review. Wall Papers. Wall papers were little used in Europe before the eighteenth century, though they had been long before that applied to house decoration by the Chinese. Those that were first Inanufactured in the west were adaptations of design from Italian brocades, and at first they were used in an unobjectionable manner, just as hangings of the costlier material were employed—namely, to fill spaces between obvious structural lines—and so applied no objection could be made to their use. On the contrary, the invention brought it within the means of almost every householder to fill blank wall spaces with agreeable tracery and harmonious color. The cornice, frieze and dado remained intact. Coigns were protected with molding or plaster work, and the inmate might feel that he was living in a built room and not in a Mndbox. But gradually the wall features disappeared, paper crept over everything except window and door openings, even into the very anglfes of the walls, and it is nothing uncommon now on entering a saloon of considerable pretension and proportions to. find the walls closely covered with paper from floor to ceiling, save a narrow skirting board to protect the plaster from the housemaid's brootn and a cornice reduced to a meager molding.— Blackwood's Magazine. Sentenced to Matrimony. A young man and a young woman were contesting possession of a piece of property, the one claiming under an old lease, the other under an old will. "It strikes me," said the justice, "that there is a pleasant and easy way to ter-/ minate this lawsuit. The plaintiff seems to be a respectable young man, and this is a very nice youtfg woman. They'can both get married and live upon the farm. If they go on with the law proceedings, the property will all be frittered away among the lawyers, who, I am sure, are not ungallant enough to Wish the marriage not to come off." The lady blushed, and the young man stammered that they "liked each other a little bit,", so a verdict was rendered for the plaintiff on the condition of his promise to marry the defendant within two months, a stay of execution being put to the verdict till the marriage ceremony should be completed. This is about the first couple ever sentenced to matrimony in a court of law. —Gripsack. " J A Woman Superintendent* The momentous question whether it should be a lady superintendent or woman superintendent has been decided by the trustees of the normal college. The executive committee had recommended Jjhat the bylaws of the college be amended by designating one of the professors woman superintendent. Commissioner Lummis said he preferred lady supeiSntendent. While there was no doubt that woman superintendent was correct, still he thought the term was not generally applied in institutions of as much dignity as the normal college. He made an amendment that lady be inserted instead of woman. Commissioner Hubbell said woman was better form than lady. Mr. Lummis withdrew his ainendment, and it is now woman superintendent.—New York Sun. - ' ; - Bather Uninviting.

With fliafr-efflt of-countenance yotl C9nJ^i fU Thxasf WHY THE INTERVIEWER EXISTS.? •til A Few Reasons to Account for the Popularity of One Form of Journalism. Why do persons of notonety admit the domestic intervier/dr? Probably a number of reasons may be assigned. The most respectable is indolent good nature; it is easier to toy "yes" than "no;" to have the tilos in your fireplace , described as "Persian," and, at the same time, as the work of an Englishman, than to keep your drawing room for your acquaintances. Tins is the fairest plea for permitting your person and ' - -i/pM furniture to be exhibited to the subur- * ban citizen who, honest man, prob- jpj ably never heard of you and cares'very little about you. Again the patient may really like being talked about in public—may enjoy the idea of permitting all the world to know, as Mr. Allen says, "curibus little details which might be left to your Conscience, your cook anft the commissioners of inland revenue." It is an odd taste, but it is possible that "the animals enjoy it." The interviewed may pretend to complain, but may really rejoice. The public does not mind it, the patient is pleased, the interviewer eairna his fee in the way ho has Seen,inspire?! to choose. - - ' ' !- 'r * g C;4lg .v '' '-*•«£ All this may be admitted, but the plea of necessity cannot be admitted. Again, probably many of the patients think an ' 'interview" a good advertisement. They are brought before the public notice; therefore the public will rea<S their books or buy their pictures. This is a sad mistake. The public which reads interviews knows nothing about the interviewed author and his Works, cares nothing about them nor about anything of tlie sort. "Here is gossip about somebody whose name I have seen in the papers," says the reader, so he reads the gossip, but there his interest ends. •The theory of advertisement, of profit * ' < to accrue from a little more of personal ^ notoriety, is a blunder. The public of this kind cares to know that an author - - . squints, Weighs 12 stone 10 or has a broken nose, or uses a thick handled pen; but as to what he writes with thai pen this kind of public is serenely indifferent. Where, then, is .the necessity for admitting the interviewer? Neces- • , , r sity there is none, but indolence, vanitgr ' love of notofiety, are likely to keep tlK " 1 ^ author of interviews in full employ*^ ment- ,.

m THE FAVORITE HOME PAPER.
ps$.- MipeMent in all tMngs; Neutral in netting.
t. The Gazette has the largest circulation
of any paper In Norwalk,
and furnishes the lowest advertising?
Police vs. press.
When approached yesterday by a
Gazette representative relative to a recent
burglary, which had been reported
to the police, Chief Dann informed
the reporter that it had been his intention
to keep the matter quiet and not
let the newspapers know of the affair.
The burglary, however, was given
away to a member of the press by one
of the police force, and published.
"We are of the opinion that Buch action
on the part of Chief Dann is wrong.
If the police need assistance they at
once seek the aid of the newspapers,
who gather the news of the state and
outside world from day to day. If a
horse is stolen or a robbery committed
the press is the first to give it to the
public, together with a description of
the stolen property and the thief.
The item is passed along each day
from paper to paper until the thief and
stolen property has been minutely described
and read in every town in the
state. By this assistance of the press
the owner is often aided in regaining
his property, and the police given valuable
assistance. If an occasiou arises
wherein the publication of a robbery
or other item would tend to defeat the
hand of justice, it is but necessary for
the police to fully state the case to the
press and request its publication withheld.
Such confidence will never be
violated by a true newspaper man, and
Chief Dann need have no fear of such
an imposed trust being .betrayed. But
to attempt to keep an item of news
from the press is wrong and rarely succeeds.
Sooner or later an alert reporter
is on the trail and publishes the facts,
much to the chagrin of the police.
The newspapers are indispensible to
the police. The police are indispensible
to the press. Why then, should
they not work together in unison ?
Some weeks since the Gazette called
attention to the illegal sale of intoxicating
liquors within the Borough limits,
and commented thereon in unmistakable
language, but nothing, was done
by the police to stop it. In order to be
of assistance to the new Chief, as well
as to protect those who have paid their
money for a license, we again call
attention to the matter and remind
Chief Dann that liquor is reported to
be openly sold illegally in the second
story of a building on Wall street, on
Water street, on Franklin avenue, on
Prospect avenue, on Chapel street, on
Knight street and on Main street, all
within the Borough. In addition to
the above sale of liquor without license
the Gazette would also call attention
to the fact that liquor is said to be sold
on Sunday by licensed saloons on Wall
street, on Main street and on Water
street. We are in possession of the
names of these guilty parties, and a
member of Chief Dann's force also
has the names of a large number of
persons seen coming out of these places
on Sunday, all of which aie at his pleasure.
Here is a great opportunity, Chief
Dann. Will you do youi duty and
stop this Sunday and illegal sale of
liquor ? f
