Of course, Assistant. Postmaster General Maxwell is whacking off heads as fast as possible among the fourth class Postmasters, says the Philadelphia Times. He was put there to do it, just as Headsman Clarkson was put there four years ago. The fact that Clarkson made 1,328 appointments from March 4, 1889, to April 3, of which 825 were removals, logically made a great many commissions expire during the months, of March, 1893 ; but Maxwell hasn't been much more than half equal to liis predecessor, as lie managed to make no more than 878 appointments from the 4th of March until the 3d of April, only 370 of which were removals. It will be seen that Headsman Clark-son removed more than two to one for Headsman Maxwell as far as the returns are in ; but the howl of the Republicans goes on now all the same, just as the Democratic howl went on four years ago. Although Maxwell hasn't made removals in half the cases where Clarkson made removals in 1889, the only question is whether Maxwell should be criticised for making any removals at all, or for not making enough. The civil service laws don't take in the fourth class Postmasters, and they are regarded as legitimate party prey as new political power comes along. When civil service reform shall be accepted by all parties whether in or out of power, there will be hope for fourth class Postmasters, but until then, both parties will decapitate them for party ends, and the party that suffers the decapitation will howl about it. TERSE TALES OF THE TIMES: Amusements. ; v - f e s t e MUSIC HALL. "Skipped by the Light of the Moon" will be presented at Music Hall, next Saturday evening.

SOUSA'S MARINE BAND COMING. - At the time of the coming visit of Sousa's Band, some new works are to be heard by that gifted composer, John Philip Sousa. He has spent a large part of the winter on a work founded on ''The Last Days of Pompeii" which musical critics say is the finest piece he has written. It is in the form of a Suite, the first number being a description of the Gladiators in the house of Burbo and Stratonice. The second number is devoted to the blind girl, Hydia, in which an exquisite Corno Anglaise solo is heard. The third number is a depiction of the destruction in the midst of which is heard the hymn of the Nazarenes, and the Hydia theme is repeated. Another piece is a Fantasie on the best known church hymns, which will be accompanied by a chime of church bells, said to be very effective. Mr. Sousa has also made an arrangement of the exceedingly difficult Wagner Overture, "The Plying Dutchman" which has never been done by a military band, on account of its difficulties," and his own arrangement of Liszt's famous Second Rhapsody almost identical with the original, orchestration, which is, also very difficult to execute. All, or most of the above, will be placed in the programme of the concert here to be given May 3d at Music Hall. The following great vocal artists will also appear: Mme. Fursch-Madi, and Mme. VanCauteren, sopranos; Fraulein ; Behnne, contralto ; Albert L. Guille, tenor ; Wm. Nertens, baritone ; and Sig. Viviani, basso profundo. •xorturea oy i;mto Caps.

Warden Sloan presided. Mr. A. H. Camp moved that the resolution passed at a borough meeting on March 15th be reconsidered, and it was so voted. The resolution was to the effect that the tax of fifteen mills laid at a meeting held January 16th, be reduced to such rate not less than nine mills, be rescinded. On a reconsideration of the matter the original resolution was killed. Burgess Glover read an estimate of the different expenses liable to be incurred by the borough during the current year, which aggregated something over $46,000. Last year the expenses were about $32,000. Said a ten mill tax would raise $40,577, and that the grand list was $4,667,000. W. S. Moody thought a nine mill tax would be sufficient. Levi Warner offered the following resolation: . Whereas, This borough, did, at a meeting held January 16th, 1893, vote a tax of fifteen (15) mills on a dollar, of the ratable estate in the borough liable to taxation, in a list to be completed ; and said list has been completed, and it appears that said tax of fifteen (15) mills will raise a larger sum than will be required. Yoted, That the tax rate of fifteen mills fixed by this borough meeting, held January 6th 1893, be, and hereby is reduced to ten mills on the dollar of the ratable estate, liable to taxation in thi3 borough. E. J. Hill said that he was in favor of a ten mill tax, as he did not believe it a wise policy for the borough to run into debt, said he believed the present court of Burgesses to consist of men of sound [judgment, that they were honest and that the funds of the borough would be economically and intelligently expended. Believed it poor policy to cut them down in the matter of expenditures ; was of the opinion and always had been that Such improvements as the macadamizing of West avenue and Main street ought to have been paid for by assessment^but as the people had voted otherwise believed that money enough ought to be voted to pay for such improvements when the bills became due. Messrs. Piatt Price, W^ H. Olmstead, B. W. Maples and A. H. Camp spoke in favor of tho resolution after which it was parsed with but a few dissenting votes. It was voted that the tax become due and payable on June 15th; The meeting then adjohrned. His Body Must Stay in Greenwood. The application of tke relatives of Edwin Hoyt, who died in 1874, to compel those in charge of Greenwood Cemetery t© issue a permit for the removal of his body and that of his wife to Woodland Cemetery at Stamford, has been denied by Justice Ingraham of the Supreme Court. Hoyt bought thirty lots at Greenwood in 1854. Application to the authorities at Greenwood for permission to remove the body was denied. . Counsel for the cemetery said that the heirs desired to remove the bodies in order- to sell the plot at enhanced value, and that the policy of the association and the laws of the State were against trafficing in burial lots. Hoyt had paid but $1,800 for the plot, which is now worth $20,000. His deed contained the covenant = "No disinterment shall be allowed without permission having been obtained at the office of the cemetery." Justice Ingraham says the heirs may take out an alternative writ of mandamus in order to test the question on appeal. USE DANA'S SARSAPARILLA,IT'S "THE KIND THAT CURES." Suspend Judgment.

Rescued by the Conductor/ Edward Foy, 55, while sitting on the railroad bridge at Norwich yesterday in a drunken stupor, was struck by a train on the New London Northern road and fatally injured. When the train struck him he was hurled into the river and would have been drowned in a few moments but for the heroic work of Conductor Curley who witnessed the accident. The latter saw Foy plunge over the side of the bridge into the water and a moment later he leaped from his train and jumped in after him. With much difficulty he succeeded in bringing the injured man to the bank. N. Y. & N. E. Captured. A Boston dispatch says that a director of the New York & New England railroad says that the road will pass into tho bands of the Consolidated at a very early date.

Brain-ard house hotel property at Willimantic for $30,000 to Hugh C. Murray, who will remove the hotel building and erect in its place a modern brick block to be used for mercantile business. The Bfainard house is one of the-oldest hbtel steids in Eafcfem Cbtmeetifeut;;. ; : • mn At Hartford. The special order in the Senate yesterday was the pool room bill, already passed by the House. Chairman Fox, chairman of the Judiciary committee, said that before reporting the pending bill he and his colleagues had carefully considered proposed amendments allowing pool selling on fair grounds and other enclosed tracks in this state, but had concluded there should be no discrimination in their favor. Milner offered an amendment exempting from the operations of the bill enclosed tracks of the state between May 1 and Nov. 1 for periods not exceeding twenty days. Holcomb spoke against the amendment. He said the bill did not originate in a spirit of opposition to Connecticut trotting courses, but was aimed at the pool rooms which were doing more harm than any evil in Connecticut. When it came to the vote on the bill Robertson cast the only nay vote, while there were 21 in the affirmative. The measure now oaly requires the signature of the governor to become a law. People are asking what has become of the $30,000 the pool room men raised to defeat the bill. The $14,000 of the fund said to have been paid a Hartford lawyer is still talked about; Some say that the pool room proprietors are not disheartened by the adoption of the measure, relying either on defects lawyers have found in it or on a crusade to secure such a strict enforcement of it that it will become so obnoxious as to be inoperative. The next special order was the Ham-mersley corrupt practice bill intended to prevent bribery in any form at elec-tions, and requiring candidates to make sworn returns of the campaign expenses they had received. Pierce moved to table it saying it was so important and comprehensive that such provision should receive careful consideration. At the request of Fox, Pierce withdrew his motion so that the former might make it as a representative of the judiciary committee. Measure consequently went on the table without opposition, but will probably be taken off next week after careful study. Edward Doyle was confirmed as bank commissioner to fill out the term until July 1, of Stephen Goodrich, deceased. Mr. Doyle was early in the season nominated and confirmed for a four years term of the same office to commence July 1. The House passed the resolution incorporating the borough of Ridgefield and the South Norwalk club. The bill relating to the appointment of the board of Appraisers for the city of Bridgeport was tabled on motion of Representative Walsh, so that it might be amended to permit of vacancies in su^h board being filled by the mayor. On the unfavorable report of the committee on Roads the House rejected the bill compelling selectmen of towns to clear obstructed roadways. In the Senate the speoial order of the day was the petition of Edwin C. Pinney to be declared elected to the Senate from the Twenty-fourth district, in place of Keeney, the incumbent. Senators Pierce and Holcomb, of the contested elections commitiee, submitted a majority report in favor of Keeney; Senator Holden (Dem.), a minority report in favor of Pinney. Senator Pierce said the legislature had not the power to go behind the returns, but the courts had; only, however, in the case of special circumstances. This position was the one he took two years ago, and he could not consistently take any other course now. Senator Holden said there were precedents to the contrary, and a long debate ensued. The Senate adopted the majorityvre-port by a vote of 11 to 8. In the Senate a bill passed which amends the statutes so that tax liens may be filed within one year after tax is due and will draw interest at 7 per cent, during the existence of the lien. The lien shall remain five years. , Other matters passed include a bill concerning suits on probate bonds limiting the time of action against a surety to six years ; an act relating to division of school districts, an act providing for organization of districts, "to extinguish fires, to sprinkle streets, to light streets, to plant and care for shade or ornamental trees, to construct and. maintain sidewalks, crosswalks, drains and sewers, to appoint and employ watchmen or public officers," an act relating to the taking of eels in Stamford and Darien, resolution amending the charter of the Sharon fire district. A bill reported by the committee on Agriculture forbids the use not only of the word "butter," but of "dairy" and "creamery" in describing any product of fat or L "milar substance not made from milk or cream. It also forbids the manufacture of anything that in form or color resembles butter. A substitute measure was reported on the registration of dogs, providing for an annual tax oZ $10.15 on each un-spayed female dog and a maximum penalty of $7 fine or imprisonment for thirty days or both for registering an unspayed female dog as spayed. The committee on Agriculture reported favorably on the amendment to the game laws making the killing of "each wild duck, wild grouse, brant, sora, rail, snipe, ruffled grouse, quail, woodcock, gray squirrel, or other bird or animal" a "separate and distinct offense." The committee on Agriculture reported unfavorably on the bill to prevent trespass on farms. The House accepted the report. Bridgeport's New Postmaster. Before the present week has. past, President Cleveland will undoubtedly send to the senate the name of Frederick S. Stevens to be postmaster of Bridgeport. Hon. Patrick Coughlin also has-presented a petition signed by numerous names, to be appointed to the position, but it is understood that Mr. Stevens has the better chances. Postmaster Knowlton's term expired on April 6.—Bridgeport Uttion. A FORGING EVANGELIST. Eovr "Harvey Blair" Worked the Religious Racket in Richmond. RICHMOND, April 13.—The police of Eichinond are looking for a swindler calling himself Harvey Blair and who claims to hail from Minneapolis, who arrived here on the 1st of March. He claimed to be the representative of a Christian organization and brought letters in proof thereof to a prominent Richmond clergyman. He sooa :-oon found himself a fellow boarder of the f ishier of the First National bank. Blair made himself very agreeable to everybody, and when the cashier was sick later on he won that gentlemen's heart by various little attentions. Jle claimed to represent l-he Christian Endeavor society and last Sunday week addressed a large crowd in Manchester and organized a branch society. He also claimed to represent' a party of capitalists from Minneapolis who were coming here to invest largely in Virginia lands. He went to the First National h:mk and asked them to cash a draft for ? 2,132.47, purporting to be drawn by the Citizens' bank of Northfield, Minn., on i he American Exchange National bank of New York. Inquiry proved that the draft Vv'as a forgery and the case was given over to the police. , During his efforts on behalf of the Cliri-- 'tion society mentioned Blair won the esteem of a Richmond member of that organization, a well known business man. So much impressed was he with Blair that when that individual asked him to indorse a check for $S50, that he might get the money on it, his request was readily gvanted. In the course of business the p iper passed into the hands of the Merchants' National bank, where it was at c:ice found to be worthless. Of the monev received from the check $150 were given to the society. TO TEST THE LAW. Will Rush the Chinese Registration Act to the Supreme Court.
