I*' EDITOR Only Three Elected. / GAZETTE—Will you kindly inform me how many selectmen are elected in Norwalk, Some say there is only one while others say we have four. pWhich is correct ? G. D. K So. Norwalk, March 24, 1893. ^-Advertise in the "Gazette; LOOKINCJOR FICHT. A Midnight Brawl Awakens the Residents of Knight Street. Henry Degan Roughly Handled. Shortlv after 12 o'c'ock ksfc night Officer Kenney while patrolling Wall street had his attention attracted to a man who came from the direction of tbe Street Railway station, and who seemed to be very much excited. The officer recognized the party a,s rlnury S. Whit-lock, who as soon as li<3 c^uld recover his breath, said that a man had been killed on Knight street. The two started for the scene, on the way meeting John Hanlon, who explained that as near as he could learn "Silver" Degan had been assaulted and dangerously wounded. Officer Kenney rapped for Officer Morehouse who quickly joined the party and they proceeded down Knight street, until nearly in front of the house occupied by Henry Degan where they met Ada Williams, a colored woman well known in the neighborhood. She said that she was awakened about 12 o'clock by hearing someone swearing and shouting on the street and inviting any of the black — — to come out and he would lick the whole lot of them. Soon after she saw some one go up to Degan and deal him a blow over the head with what she thought to be a club. Degan fell to the ground and his assailant atter giving him a couple of kicks ran away. She disclaimed having any knowledge as to who Degan's assailant was. Mrs. Degan, however, told the officers that she believed that the party who struck her husbind was Sydney Smith who lives in the house in front of which the assault occurred. The Williams woman denied this and said that the knew that Smith was in bed at the time. Before the officers arrived Degan had been assisted into nis home and when they entered they found him sitting on a lounge, while ''Sam" Bonner and "Griff" Kelly were engaged in bathing with warm water an ugly looking wound on his head. Degan's first salutation to the officers wap, "Are these people doing the right thing for that cut ? " The officers report him as having been somewhat intoxicated, and to their questions as to who assaulted him he said he didn't know. As it'seemed impossible at thetima to get any information that would warrant an immediate arrest, they left the house and went back on their baatt-*, deciding to leave further investigation until this morning. Later, however, Captain Dann in company with Officer Kenney went to Degan's house, and the Captain questioned him as to who had committed the assault, and be replied without hesitation that it was Sydney Smith. Asked as to why he had not said this on the first visit of the officers, he said that he was too much dazed to understand what was asked him. A Mrs. Weigand who lives iu apartments on the first floor iu thj house near where the disturbance occurred, claims that she heard no unusual noise on the street. This seems strange when it is known the sound of Degan's voice had attracted the attention of Messrs. Hanlon and Whitlock who were sitting in the house of the former on Lewis street, several hundred feet away, and who gave the alarm to the police. It would appear that Degaa has had ill feeling against Smith,or members of his household, his children having, so he claims, been insulted by them. Chief Bradley investigated the matter this morning and arrests are liable to follow. SWAM THE RIVER. Jim Ellis Takes a Cold Bath and Escapes the Officers. Last Seen Going Into the WcoJs. On Saturday night last, Officer Decker of South Norwalk, attempted to arrest the notorious Jim Ellis for drunk-enuess. The skirmish between the officer and Ellis occurred at Pine street and was one of the Jivelieet order while it lasted. The officer finally knocked Ellis down with his club and thought he had him safe, but Jim thought otherwise and jumping t'j his feet made his escape. Last evening Officer Decker concluded to go to Cobble Hill after Ellis, and securing the assistance of Officer Riordan they came to this city and proceeded to Ellis' home on Marshall street. As the two officers approached the house Ellis, who was on the lookout, saw them and made a dash for the back door. The officers saw Ellis as he ran toward the river and instantly gave chase, but Jim did not propose to get captured, and on|reaching the river's bank plunged in head first and swam through the icy waters to the opposite bank, which he crawled up and started for the woods near Riverside cemetery. When Decker and Riordan reached the spot where Jim had plunged in, the latter was just disappearing from view in the woods. The two officers returned to South Norwalk without Ellis, but it is safe to say that he will be captured and made to pay dearly for his fun, if indeed he does not have pneumonia frcm his icy bath. Another Suit. D. Bannash & Ca. have brought another suit against Mrs. W. Fawcett, this time to recover $125. It will be remembered that in a previous suit after carrying it to the Supreme court of Errors, Bannash & Co. were satisfied to make a settlement on a compromise agreement between Fawcett and themselves. The latter suit is a surprise that was not looked for. Bannash & Co. accepted, as was thought,the terms of.settlement, and would abide by the same. The matter will be first tried in the town court on the present writ. Was Badly Scratched.

Against the Tramway Company. Gives An Orchestral Exhibition. The' case of John Keogh of East Norwalk vs. the Tramway company was tried in the Superior court yesterday morning before Judge George W. Wheeler. The evidence was short and consisted oDly of the testimony of Keogh and Dr. F. B. Baker of East Norwalk, who attended him at the time he was injured. The defence offered no testimony, being content to rest their case upon the nature of the evidence introduced by the plaintiff. Of course they "expected to be called upon to pay soma damages, as they defaulted. Keogh was a passenger on a car returning from Gregory's Point, to Norwalk, Sept. 1, 1895. Tuis car was closely followed by another and when it stopped the car following crashed into it, Keogh had one of the bones of his right, arm dislocated and was bcuised some about the body, but soon after the accident he was playing in an orchestra at -Roton Point. For this he said he received $15 per week, less $8 which was deducted for board. His position was that of a snire and bass drummer and cymbal player, all of which accomplishments he performed at the same time. He also said he was a hatter, and could have worked at the business had there been anything doing in that line. Oa cross-examination;! Keogh showed with drum sticks how a snare drummer performed. This wastj show that in the u?e of the sticks a drummer was not required to put his whol^ arm in mo'ion. Dr. linker testified as to the nature of Keogu'a injuries. HH bill for professional services in the case was 825. Another man who was injured in the saine'accident settled with the Tramway Co. for $400. Keogh was offered §20J, but refused to accept and brought suit for $4,500. As a witness, it is said, John did not strengthen his case. Oncj while he was telling how he used one of his legs in getting off of the car, Judge DeForest asked: "What did you do with your other leg ? " "What didl do with it ? Why I took it with me," was the reply. After the arguments were heard in the case, Judge Wheeler decided that the plrtintiff was entitled to $325 damages an .1 so found. NEW CANAAN.
