C. i^Baker, the young man who secured money under false pretenses in this sfcifcy, and later tried the same caper in ' Stamford and <was arrested and sent to jail for eight months, "while on his way to the institution wrote a letter to his girl who happens to be k widow, telling her to wait for him. He will make her I £ ibis wife as soon as he comes out. She Shas money but her conservator would not let her use any in behalf of Baker." It is thought here in Norwalk that when Baker's time expires he will have another warrant served upon him for his transactions ip NorwalK. Possibly the officer will wait until after the wedding before he places Baker under arrest, but we doubt it. i Death of Charles Bessey. • ^ ; " I 111 Word was received here this morning of the death at his home on St. Nicholas avenue, New York, of Charles Bessey, The deceased was for many rears a resident of Norwalk uri-i iv^d m what is yet known as the Bessey place on Harbor avenue. He left- Norwalk several years ago and has since resided in New York. He was a merchant tailor .by occupation. Every-year in the month of July in company with his brother Hiram, he visited friends and relatives in town. He was about 7-5 years of age, and was beloved and re- ' spectedby all who knew him. Mis. Sarah ft, Bessey of Franklin avenue is a Bistei'in-law. The remains will be brought to Norwalk for interment in the family plot. i j-%' 0 Silver Movement Handi capped.^ ; In a letter to a Kansas man, Collector John C. Byxbee of Meriden says: "The silver movement is handicapped by sev-erftl things. Among others the press. In this state the entire presr, with one exception is against Bryan. What are called the solid democrats, those who usually contribute for election expenses, have bolted, so that the party is without leaders or friends to meet the expense of the campaign. The Republicans have their leaders and money enough to run their campaign without friction. The workingmen are for Bryan, but they are poor, and you know what that means. In my opinion Bryan will not carry an eastern state." ! Will Speak in Bridgeport. Senator William M. Stewart, of Nevada, will speak at Washington park, Bridgeport,to-night under the auspices of the Demooratio committee, bis topic feeing the money question. -Advertise in tbe GAZETTX.

The grounds about the barn were brilliantly illuminated with Welsbach light?, while fromthe apex of the barn to a point within the grounds were strung at equal distances apart, lanterns which with the back ground of clouds, twinkled like a myriad of stars,presenting a beautiful as well as picturesque sight that could be seen and admired from nearly every section of the city. The large barn floor had been placed in excellent condition for dancing, while in one corner was stationed Prof. Weidenhammer who discoursed rhythmical music from the piano. In one of the smaller rooms decorated with flags and bunting, lemonade was served throughout the evening, while Caterer Lane provided dainty refreshments. 1 't , J The charming hostess had arranged twenty dances on the program which were eD joyed with a zest that did honor to her selections, and during the intermission between the numbers the merry party enjoyed walks about the illuminated grounds where the cooling breezes refreshed them for the ensuing dance.

V Patrick Sullivan, the Danbury policeman, who was beaten into.insensibility and almost killed by four .toughs last Christmas, died last night of brain fever.
