The Catholic Benevolent Legion Hold a Session in Stamford. X I- /v Father Winters Re»Elected President of the C T. A. U. Successful Session in Waterbury Ended Yesterday. 'a The state convention of the Catholic Benevolent legion, held its sixth annual session in Stamford yesterday and closed with the election of the following officers: President, John F.O'Brien' of Middletown; vice president, M. J. Mullins of Stamford: secretary, James Scallant of New Britain: treasure*-, Miles McNiff of Waterbury; orator, - ; Thomas J. Darcy of New London; spiritual adviser, Bishop Tierney of Hartford; marshal, Francis Hart of New Britain; guide, Michael Gehue of New • Haven; trustees Patrick Hanrahan of Stamford, John Mooney of Bridgeport, M. J. Golden of Seymour. The next annual convention will be held in Waterbury the third Tuesday of September, 1898. The reports showed the order to be in a healthy and flourishing condition and an increased membership of fifty during the past year. There are nineteen councils in the state. Garnisheed. te? Yesterday afternoon Constable Goodwin served garnishee papers on Messrs. Cain & Kinnear as against A. Bach for the sum of $150 on the complaint of William Sheldon. The papers were a surprise to the contractors. Mr. Bach has been furnishing crushed stone to the contractors and used in the concreting of Wall street. They, the contractors had but the day' before paid Mr. Bach $.150, and it is opined knew nothing of the claim of Sheldon who is the city inspector of the work being done. V * • •• ; ', Mr. Bach is still delivering the stone required subject to the order of Messrs. Cain & Kinnear, but the latter are being greatly hindered by inspector Sheldon who has ordered that the stone be screened. . v . • Connecticut Crop Prospects. Corn is nearly all cut; Tobacco is all hanging, with good weather for curing. A good crop of buckwheat is cut. Fall apples are being picked: winter fruit is dropping, so that these varieties are being picked also. All fruits are ripening early. . Peaches are plentiful with a ready market. Pastures in some sections are failing,but, generally, streams and wells are not yet affected by lack of rain. Potato digging is going on slowly. » )'• M ' mi ,r * A Brick Dropping. The work of laying the brick on Wall street will be commenced at 1 o'clock to-morrow. All are invited to witness the manner in which the "coons" handle the brick, but if any one brings a \ cut watermelon within ten feet of the workers it is likely that contractors Cain & Kinnear will either stop the work or call on the police to arrest the interloper and tantalized ). i'i — *•*"• r.-i • And the Democratic preliminaries1 : r ^or the noihination of a selectman go ; . v , M e r r i l l y o n . . ; ' h- , The session of the 28th annual convention of the C.

TIE GAZETTE WOULD LIKE TO SEE A distri.ct meeting for the nomination of delegates to the Demociatic town convention was held in West Norwalk last night. A sign posted on a convenient apple tree gave notice of the meeting and at the hour designated in the call carryall loads of voters appeared and commenced the work of depositing their ballots. West Norwalk resident3, it is stated, became frightened at the great influx of strangers and but three of them voted. It is further claimed tkat the boxes were "stuffed" some of the men depositing as many as six ballots each. About the time the ballot-box was closed, it is stated, a number of voters revisited the polling place p,nd made sad havoc with the box and ballots,with the result that no returns could be made to the inspector. ' p? It was a great day in West Norwalk and excited as much interest as would a circus. " - , * FRATERNAL NEW$. There was an Uncas pow-wovv last night at which no scalping yras done.

OYSTERMEN GLUM. The Catch Will be Less This Season Than Was Ex- . pected. The Set Promising on Only a Few ot the Beds. Local oystermen are glum over the prospect of the season for an inspection of theaiatural beds just completed warrants the'belief that the catch will, be less than 30 per cent, of the catch of last season. On only a few of the beds is the set promising of good results, and although prices will be high on account of the scarcity of the bivalves, they will not be sufficient to pay for the time and exertion expended in getting the few oysters that may be had. On the extreme shoal natural beds the set is good, but there are only a few of these beds. On the shoal beds off New Hdven and Milford the set is only fair. On the deep water beds the set is so thin as to make the working of the beds a profitless task. On some of the deep water beds there are no oysters at all. The oystermen attribute to the weather which prevailed in J uly the scarcity of the shell fish. Oysters seem to need warm dry weather, without winds during July, and this year the conditions were diametrically opposite the favorable. Only the shoal beds escaped the baneful influence of the chill which pervaded the water because of a lack of the sun's heat. A particularly heavy storm in July,which stirred up the bottom, is supposed to have killed the spawn on the deep water, beds. About 225 workers of the natural beds have taken out licenses for the season, against 300 a year ago. One-third of the proceeds of the issue of licenses will be used by the shell fish commissioners toward buying the beds. . . PERSONAL NOTES. Mrs. Henry W.
