MANY-Burglars Visit His North Ave-wM$* i nue Residence. r$v Had Packed a Hamper With Siverware-tv- y The residence of Dr. Charles W.

The doctor's son, Fred. W. Many, gave the GAZETTE reporter the following particulars of the burglary. He said:''Father and mother went away : early in the evening, leaving the house ,J in charge of the domestic. I went home " to dinner about 7 o'clock,- and our servant waited upon me.

I do not think that I was ;V absent more than half an hour, when I returned, but before reaching the house - met Percy Barnum, to whom I had ' "' loaned a rifle, and he informed me that • he had been to my home and rang the N doorbell, and thought that he heard * ! hurried footsteps, as if two or more •f-tj, persons were trying to get out of the Kt house. »'Hb advised me not to go into the % house as he believed there were burg- - lars there, but I went in as usual, and * ran up stairs to my room, and securing my revolver, proceeded to investigate. • ;i, * "I foujad a large hamper in which some damp clothes had been placed -,' had been overturned and the clothes _ - % dumped out on the floor. The hamper , "t*^ was filled with Bilverware and was in V*5k 4 readiness to be taken from the house. Tie rooms on the next floor had not ^||fl apparently been visited." . yff FhtITtA1*'•«WirflBtieffttion showed that the ^ J burglar or burglars, who evidently knew• :thf^":<ie..- family was away, had ||3§| first gained an entrance by cutting out a pane of glass from a window at the |||'4^rear 0£ the house and throwing back >*• »' the catch entered the room. They then |^f>| found their way to the dining room barred by a door which was locked. ^ They pushed against this door and suc-ceeded in bursting the casing which ^^P'Was of light material, and the way was ffe&ft-, then;,opeii tothem. "Y" \ *1^8 It'ifl evident that they were frightened away by the ringing of the door-bell by young Barnum, and that they would $5' * have visited the other apartments but W-t f°r h*8 timely arrival. . The work is thought to be that' of ^ local crooks who are balieved to be in ,|/r' league with professionals. Evidence . may yet be adduced that will land them §?£$ all, where they belong—in State prison. '1,'' • ' IT®B GAZETTE:—I noticed that Judge Hubbell's Error. S '/ your isiue of yesterday contained no condemnation of Judge Hubbell's ac- ' '.^ rtion in allowing John Hanlon to be re- •W**\ leased on,bail after be bad been placed IP in the lockup for bei^tr beastly intoxi- X , v cated upon the Streets and creating a I#'' ^ disturbance. Under th© old Justice system the GAZETTE used to be quite *V i!: severe when some favored on®rr?Ya®. ; lowed to escape punishment. Why this - change of heart?" ' 3. In reply to "S" we would say. that | the GAZETTE believed the old Justice | system Iras used as a means of support-ing several town barnacles who eked out a precarious living by preying up-r/ f|Von the poor and unfortunate. When kW? some one having a political "pull," like ifey the Hanlons, fell into the hands of the unwilling police and were either re-leased or their cases settled on the ' 'quiet," it was then that the GAZETTE expressed its cond^oiMtion of the meth- "rodsemployed. In the case of Judge Hubbell, the J :I GAZETTE believes that he honestly and i?f| conscientiously endeavors to perform. ^ the duties of his office to the best of his .^ability. There is no doubt that the 1 Judge made a serious mistake in releasing Hanlon, especially when his j drunken condition, and past record, I are taken into consideration, and the ^J GAZETTE is free to say it. Bat we do I|i not believe that Judge Hubbell was '.t| actuated by politics or friendship, when i he allowed Hanlon to be released from ill the lockup. Nevertheless, all decent til people agree that an immediate stop ^ must be put to the drunken rowdyism * recently become so rampant in our city. Jr Mrs. James L. Stevens complained to " bhief Bradley this morning of the ecan- I tine8s of the attire of those who bathe fin the creek at the rear^of her home on ' East avenue. The chief will appear on I the Boene when least expected, and some one will be arreBted. , ^ HILL FOR COVERNOR. Samuel Fessenden as a Can- ; didate for Congress. ? Surprises for the Republican Convention. The Bridgeport Farmer of last evening prints the following sensational and fishy yarn: The political advocates of John Addison Porter in this city are anything but down-hearted, and they have .more hope than the members of the Bepubli-can machine wish they had. Th^y say, with absolute confidence, that the boast cf the Cooke strength in the coming Republican convention, Uus been noised for all it is worth—or rather, for a great deal more than it is worth—and that there are lots of supposed Cooke men in the delegation who are not Gooke men at all. One of the minor elements that will enter into the coming convention at Hartford next month will be the number of delegates, who are slated as Cooke men, yet are at heart not in favor of the candidacy. of that gentleman. There is no doubt about the men who will be there in Porter's interest. They can be placed, and are known by their enthusiasm. They got the nomination as delegates in spite, and in opposition to the machine. Many of the Cooke delegates, naturally, are machine delegates, lacking in enthusiasm, and many of them indifferent. /£\\ Only two men, so far have been mentioned as candidates for governor by the Bepublicans—the fight being confined between Mr. Cooke and Mr. Porter. Such a thing was seldom known before, and certainly not in a year when the Bepublicans feel so sanguine as they do this. It has just come to light that Congressman E. J. Hill of this district is to be brought forward as a dark horse and strenuous efforts will be made to have him oapture the nomination, for which, his friends say, he is a candidate. Mr. Fessenden desires to go to CoCf gross for several important reasons-one a desire to control some state federal patronage, and another to pave his way as successor to Senator Hawley. The first district helps the second. It is given out that there will be no opposition to Mr. Piatt as his own successor in the U. S. Senate. Mr. Piatt has & strong following in the country towns and has no decided opposition in the cities. Mr. Fessenden and Morgan Bulkeley are too shrewd in politics to suppose that they can overcome Mr. Piatt's popularity. Both are laying low for Senator Hawley. Mr. Fessenden is desirous to get on the inside track of Morgan Bulkeley in the senatorial race, and a Congressional term will do that. That is why Congressman Hill will be suddenly burst upon the convention at the proper time as a candidate. The Porter men are aware of the plan, and say they are less afraid of Hill than they are of Cooke,- and of the two they prefer Hill, as a number of delegates pledged to the Barkhamstead man would bb free to vote as they chose, and the Porter men think they will not lose by the surprise prepared by Mr. Fessen-den's friend# > But when the time comes to choose a successor to Senator Hawley, there will be the liveliest kind of a three-cornered battle. Mr. Hawley will naturally desire to succeed himself, and there will be Morgan G. Bulkeley with his barrel and Sam Fessenden with his pull. -A:" Should be Loyal to Hartford. * It's pretty early in the proceedings to be speculating about President McKin-ley's appointments, but the suggestion that the Hon. Nehemiah D. Sperry of New Haven will be "considered" when the time comes for picking out the new postmaster general is (as Iago said) apt and of great credit. One does not need to have been born a Connecticut Yankee in order to venture so easy a guess as that.—Courant. ^ Yes, but possibly it would tickle the Courant's new Editor just as well, to see Ex-Gov. Bulkeley ensconced in the Cabinet, eh? The Courant should be loyal to Hartford you know. ; '' -J,I They Lead the Pace. : ' • Since . the Olsen Brothers led the pace on fitting up their palatial store in white, all the other stores in town, seem to have affected this white pigment. Now it is the great Boston store and the Weed store, west of the Fairfield Gouty Savings Bank, that are being repainted pure white. For Porter. St The Kepubiicans of Wilton it is claimed, are for Porter for Governor, They send Col. Dick Fitch and Lewis Hnrlbntt to the State Convention to carry out their Wiehes. SKIPPEDJIS BOND. J. Hanlon s Bond Forfeited in the Town Court. Dan Pays $26.66 for Drunkenness. When the Town court opened, this morning, attorney Walsh appeared and stated that he had been informed that his client had left towQ, and he did not know where he had gone. Prosecuting Attorney Gregory thereupon asked that the cash bond furbished by John Manning, $25, be forfeited, which the court ordered. Attorney Gregory next called the case of Dan Hanlon, and he pleaded guilty cf intoxication. The Prosecu-t. ng Attorney asked for the full penalty and Judge HubbelL imposed the full fine, $20 and costs, amounting to $*6.66, which Dan paid and was discharged. Yesterday afternoon William Slattery and young Burke were brought before the court. Burke was discharged as no evidence connected him with the outrageous conduct of the others. Slattery was found guilty on four counts, including drunkenness, and was including costs $30.85. His father appeared and not being satisfied with the verdict asked for an appeal and offered himself as bondsman in the sum of $100, but Attorney J. Belden Hurlbutt who was prosecuting, refused to accept him and John Cullen, who keeps the liquor saloon on the Bridge was substituted. It is safe to predict that when the Beynolds and Slattery appear in the upper courts and the testimony of their drunken and disgraceful actions on the Tramway car are brought forth, the decision of Judge Hubbell will not only be sustained but the loafers will have a chance to make .the acquaintance of Sheriff Hawley at the Bridgeport jail for a much longer term than was imposed on them in the town court, i BARGE DEVENNY FINED. Owner Refuses to Pay Penalty Imposed for > ; Not Having Proper Papers. v It was learned at Stamford yesterday that the bafge Henry E. Devenny, owned by Mo Williams Brothers' of New York, who own upwards of 200 barges carrying coal to various Sound porte, had been fined by Deputy Collector E_. B. Goddard for not having registration papers or a cargo manifest, some days since* A representative of the owners waB in Stamford Monday. He refused to pay the fine, and the boat was tied up alongside the derelict sobooner lying in the harbor on the flats, where no tug could reach it. The captain was taken off by the owner, and Deputy Collector Goddard put a man aboard of her. Mr. McWil-liams, who runs barges to Bridgeport and Norwalk without papers, believing that none were required, is going to find out whether he will be obliged to have his large fleet of barges registered or • not. ;'/ . The Choir's Picnic. The choir of St. Paul's church enjoyed their annual picnic at Gregory's Point, yesterday. To the number of about thirty they boarded a Tramway car and were whirled to the junction at South Norwalk where, they boarded a transfer car to the Point. Soon after arriving they started a base ball game but in the, second inning the only bat was broken and the game was abandoned. After enjoying themselves the party took a sail in Captain Carr's yacht Nellie, some of the number landing at Nau-voo where they indulged in a swim. There were but two accidents. The first happened to 12-year old xJFelix Carney who was run down by a bicycle rider as he was about to board the transfer car. He escaped uninjured. During the sail Frank Hoyt of XJnion-ville fell Overboard but was quickly pulled out of the water by the other lads. The party reached home at 8:30 well pleased with their outing. Ill Will Hunt Bass. It having been noised about that there are bass, perch, pike and other members of the finny tribe in Lake Wacca-buc waiting to bite at Norwalk bait, Messrs. - Frank Merrill, John Hogan, Jacob Linxweiler and John Kilboy, have organized themselves into a fishing party and to morrow will start for the lake, expecting to be absent until Saturday. If found necessary'1 one of Mr. Merrill's ice wagons will be summoned to bring the oatch home^ % - Captain Charles Riley and the yacht Marguerite went to Bridgeport to* day, where a party will board her for a few days trip down east. They were wise in the selection of a craft. v iff M' AND THERE. An Ipiiome of Happenings of 1 Jf Interest to the Public. - orl Garnered With Scissors and Pencil. There will be dancing at Gregory's Point to-night. . It takes a nervy bioyole rider to carry a watermelon home on his bike. v The Seventh C.

Bishop and family of Belden avenue returned home yesterday from the Adirondacks. a 1 /V Congressman Hill is scheduled to be "home again" to-day, although he has no fences needing repair. ^ * i ; ' 'A number of Norwalk people have gone to Glen Island, some by rail, but a greater portion by boat. The Silver Mines defeated the Arctics in a game of base ball, yesterday afternoon, by a score of 14 to 11. Thomas Dowd, the active young man at Smith's market, is at "Little Germany," Glen Island, to.-day. The St. Paul Brotherhood of St. An. drew has gone to Long Island to-day to pick beach plums and have a good time. O. E. Wilson, has sold to Samuel Brundage, three lots on Harriet street, upon which he expects to, erect a cottage this fall. W, W. Beers of this city, who has t^een ill for the past .four jweeks in Bridgeport is reported as being neatly Recovered. ^ ' " Chief Bradley can be seen riding the city bicycle on West avenue, ^ every evening. He has it under fall control and rides like a Centaur. -' r:' ; Mrs. A. A. Chinery and child returned home from a few weeks' visit In Boston, last night, and Councilman Chinery is correspondingly happy. ^ ) . The Epworth League of the Methodist church enjoyed a ride on the Tramway line, last night. The evening was elegant and the ride a delightful one. If, as is alleged, certain young mta got a thirteen year old boy helplessly intoxicated, a warrant should be sworn out for their arrest with the result that they get a term in jail. . , \ The Pioneer Hook and Ladder company held a special meeting last night and completed the arrangements for the entertainment of the Stamford Fire Department base ball team with whioh they are to play at Norwalk Park, Saturday afternoon. Some boys found a "drunk'' in the railroad tunnel yesterday, and succeeded in landing him on the station platform a few minutes previous to the arrival of a train. The-boy's action no doubt saved the man's life, but it was haTd to make the fellow believe it. ^ The case of 13-year old Charles Mc- Mullen who is charged with theft, was heard before Judge Hubbell yesterday afternoon. The boy pleaded guilty to stealing a pair of rubber boots and a section of lead pipe. He was remanded into the custody of his mother for two weeks. The probabilities are that he will land in the State Reform School. Butcher Wardwell presented the GAZETTE'S ubiquitous "bridge'' reporter a new head, to-day. It is the most enormous cabbage-head seen in this market in recent years, and was raised by Major George M. Holmes, on his Main street plantation. Our "Fritz" is now waiting for Wardwell to send down a rump of corned beef to cook with the cabbage, on the principle that "one good turn deserves onother."'ev^^ Four horses awoke the lethargy of Main street, yesterday afternoon. In one instance a team backed into a neighboring team, threatening the total wreckage of the two. Damage nominal. Across the street, a double team attempted to enter the truok house, but one horses objected and felled the other to the walk. The driver interfered, with the result that he was pitched head-long on top of the horse that was down. Damages nominal. MEET AND ORGANIZE. • The Committee on the Mill Hill Contention 'h$y in Session This Morning. The Committee agreed upon by attorney Lockwood for city and Gray for contesatnts, in the Mill Hill assesment contention, convened at the city council room at 10 o'clock this morning. The Mayor and City Council and City Attorney Lockwood were present in behalf of the city. The petitioners Miss. Honnecker and Mr. Dwyer, were present with their attorney Mr. Gray. The first business was to'swear in the Oommittee appointed by Judge Andrews,' consisting of Charles Canfield and Henry Lee of Bridgeport and Hiram K. Scott of Ridgefield. Attorney Gray opened the bait for his clients by proposing to go on with the hearing to-day and asked that his witnesses be sworn. To this City Attorney Lockwood demurred and asked a postponement of the hearing. Gray replied opposing any delay. Lockwood followed, stating the wish and purpose of the city council to pay Miss Honnecker and P. H. Dwyer every cent the committee tnay conclude to be their due. He wished the committee to go over the property to-day and examine all its phases and at a future meeting to hear witnesses, etc. The committee then held a conference and agreed to go and view the property to-day, and hold a farther hearing in the case as to a reappraisal on Tuesday, September 8th, at 10 a. m., at the council room. Recent Deaths. • Joseph Leeds, died at the Town Farm yesterday afternoon aged 66 years. Leeds for a number of years has been daft, said to have been caused by unrequited love. He was more sinned against than sinning. A year or more ago it was thought advisable to eend h m to the asylum for the insane from which institution he was but a short time since discharged. He soon after secured work at his trade, a carriage blacksmith, with Ephraim Mer-rit. He again became crazed and was temporarily committed to the Town Home where he remained until his death as above. The funeral will be attended from the home of his sister on Cross street, to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. T. K. Noble officiating. Martin F..Culloo a- hack driver was found dead in his bed at Stamford yesterday. The cause of his death was strangulation resulting from asthma. Frank B. Cladwell aged 13 years, died suddenly of heart disease at his home in Stamford yesterday. Mrs. Annie Hornflower BeDj*min died in Bethel, yesterday. A Peculiar Case. ! John T. Smith was tried before Judge Hubbell in the Town Court, this morning, on the charge of assaulting W. J. Lynch. Attorney Leo Davis appeared for the State and Attorney John J. Walsh for Smith. When the Lynch family testified it was plainly seen that there was not only a desire to hide the facts in the case by some prevaricating testimony. The defense showed a clear case of self defense, Lynch having attempted to whip Smith three times and getting defeated each time. Attorney Davis claimed conviction on the part of the State against a marf for defending himself, and Attorney Walsh submitted his case without going into ' the testimony. Judge Hubbell promptly discharged the prisoner without remark. 'i Good Work. Street Commissioner Kellogg has a gang of men at work laying the new city water main on Mill Hill. The work of filling Smith. Street with the surplus gravel from the hill has been commenced and if the good work is carried out as proposed that much traveled thorough-fare will be pi^csd in a condition which ought have been brought about years ago. Mr. Kellogg expects to commence the work of tearing down the retaining wall on the Miss Julia Lockwood property either this afternoon or to-morrow morning. New Market. ,, r, iV "Tim" Bresnan who since the com-mencement of the war, has been engaged in the market business as an employee and latterly with the Model market conducted by W. F. Wardwell, has decided to launch cff as a "butcher pilot" himself, and has leased the vacant store in the Mallory building on Wall street which he is having fitted up for a market. "Tim" has hundreds of friends who will wish him every success in his venture. DONT MISS THEM. The Latest Ads.
