IX. NO. 2097 NORWALK, CONN., WEDNESDAY EVENING, AP Two Strangers Who Were Acquainted With the Mysteries of Poker. , CAPTURED A BOODLE, Faced Judge Gregory and After Returning the / Money Were Allowed to Leave. Edward Anderson and Fi'ed Goodwin, two strangers, arrived in. town yesterday and representing themselves as drummers soon made the acquaintance of several local young men. A game of poker was suggested and soon the party was engaged in the mysteries of that fascinating money van-i isher. The strangers were first class players and it was not long before they had scooped in $85 from "Mit" Northrop, one of the local parties. A short time after the cleaning out process "Mit;' was given the "tip" that he had been "done? up" by a pair of sharpers. Upon receiving the information "Mit" securcd the services of Captain Dann, and together they visited the Norwalk Hotel in search of the strangers. They : were found in the bar room enjoying a glass of Landlord Hamilton's refresh" ing lager, but as soon as the Captain and "Mit" appeared Goodwin ran out the door and down Isaacs street closely followed by Northrop who soon overtook him and brought him back. . In the meantime Anderson had made an indignant, denial of the accusation that he was a card sharper, but he was arrested and the two lodged in the cells at police headquarters. The men were searched and several packs of cards and $28 was all that could be found. Later, however, it was learned that Anderson in throwing his coat over the bar had thrown some $30 with it, which was found aud turned over to Captain Dann. This morning Anderson and Goodwin together with'Northrop, who had also been arrested on. the charge of card playing, were brought before Judge Gregory and pleaded guilty and were fined $5. Upon returning the'money found, the strangers obviated a civil suit on the part of Northrop and were allowed to leave town. Surprise Party. A surprise party was given to Mr. Linquist, of 21 Wood street Monday night. Those present were Mary Kuslik, Lizzie Kuslik, Lody Ambler, Mrs. Anderson, Bessie Hershfield, Emma Donnelly, Mrs. Ireland, Katie Ireland, Pauline Anderson, Mrs. Kelly, Mrs. Liudquist, George WiUiams, Willie C.jurisc, Benjamin Murphy, Arthur Bus^hil, Albert Boutin, Lester Hunt, Joseph Manning, Fred Curtis, Charlie Williams, John J.

Guilford and the iamous case which has interested two continents is at an end. Previous to the openiog of the court Tuesday morning State's Attorney Sa^n-uel Fessenden and Judge George W. Wheeler had been in conference. The judge had also had a long talk with Dr. C. Lincoln Banks. From the doctor the court' learned that Juror George Gregory would not be able to again appear in court until some time in May. This would mean tbat the jury would have to be excused for at least four weeks and iij the opinion of the court this was altogether too long a time for,, them to retain the evidence and give it proper consideration. It was theb that the state decided to consider a suggestion which was the willingness of the defendant to plead guilty to manslaughter. After a long consultation with the court it was decided that this plea would be accepted. State's Attorney Samuel Fessenden aroje and said : / "Your honor, in the case of the state against Guilford, I have decided to accept with your honor's approval, a plea of guilty of manslaughter. I do this after a full consideration of the case and a full recognition of the trouble and.expense to which the case hg,s been put." * Judge Wheeler said in reply: "I do approve of the course of the state's attorney in accepting this plea and in doing so I wish to take this opportunity to give a few reasons for so doing." Judge Wheeler then said that in many of the states the law made the offense charged against Dr. Guilford manslaughter, but in this state it was murder in the second degree. However, juries were at liberty to change the verdict and find for a lower degree of crime. Other juries had done so and it was possible that this one might. Then if another trial was ordered it would seriously disarrange the affairs of the courts and also put the state to greater expense. In conclusion Judge Wheeler said; "The court should always give due consideration to the opinion of the state's attorney for he is always familiar with all the facts connected with any case. And in this instance even more weight should be given because the court was aware of the marked ability in whu-.h the soat-e'd case had been conducted aud with the zeal shovyn for the public service." v, When the court had finished Mrs. Guilford was told to stand up. Clerk Shelton said to her: "To the indictment which has been read are you willing to change your plea?" After a slight hesitation Mrs. Guilford said: "I am guilty of manslaughter." She was asked by Judge Wheeler whether she had anything f,o say and she made no reply. Judge DeForest said a few words in her behalf and pleaded for leniency. In passing sentence Judge Wheeler said that with the evidepce before the court there was no question tjiat the state had made out that a criminal operation had been performed. In view of all the circumstances Judge Whe&ler said he would impose a sentence, of ten yesirs iu the state prison with a fine of $1 and costs. Mrs. Guilford v/ai given the maximum prison penally while the fiue was made the lightest possible.

She gave one long sigh when her counsel was pleading.for her, but after that she showed no emotion. And so ends the 'great case of the State against Guilford.

Taylor Dead. • . Henry A. Taylor, of 11 West Forty-sixth street, New York city, $ied at his home last Saturday. Mr. Taylor was the owner of the yacht Regina, which is lying near Riverside avenue and is quite well known in towd. Mr. Taylor was seen by Captain Char±es R. Day of East Norwalk, only, a few weeks ago and was at that time thought to be improving in health. He was making arrangements with him for the sale of the Regina and for the purchase of a ninety foot schooner yacht and intended to live aboard the boat all summer. . . New Insane Hospital. Norwalk will be given a hearing at Hartford to-morrow in reference to building the new insane hospital in this town. A large number of business men will go to that city and be present at the hearing. In the superior court, before Judge George W. Wheeler, Tuesday morning Attorney John C. Chamberlain moved that the sentence of death in accordance with which Frederick Max Brock-haus would be hanged on Sept. 6, for the murder of David S. R. Lambert of Wilton in 1897, be set aside and a new trial ordered. He made the motion on. the ground that Philip Haugh of Newtown, one of the jurors who sat on Brockhaus's case and rendered the verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree, is not yet.25 years of age. Mr. Chamberlain said that he had heard rumors of the youth of the juryman, and that he caused an investigation to be made which established the fact that he will not be 25 years old J until next autumn. The statutes of the state, as amended by the 1895 session of the general as" sembly, require that a juryman shall % be an elector, at least 25 years old and ^ of good repute for sound judgment and 4 integrity in the community in which he £ resides. .j; State's Attorney Fessenden asked Mr.' Chamberlain if he did not know at the ^ time of the trial how the statute read. "I did not," said Mr. Chamberlain. The statute, before it was amended, required only that a juryman should ^ be an elector and a ma'h of good repute '5® and of sound judgment and integrity. Mr. Haugh, the juryman whose age is in question, is a youn% farmer. He ;;1 is rugged faced and weather beaten, and would easily pass for 27 or 28 years of age. : At the request of Mr. Fessenden, the ' case went over until April 24, for further discussion. Old Oysterman Dead. : Horace Chase, one of the oldest residents of Fair Haven, died last night of heart disease. Mr. Chase was 86 years old and had long been engaged in the oyster business in Fair Haven. He was not confined to the house until about two weeks ago. Woman Poisoned By Accident.
