Death Or One Or Onr City's Most Venerable And Leading; Men A Lone Lire And Honorable Etlstln swished As An Inventor Respected For His Worth And High Character. Mr. Eli Whitney Blake passed away yes terday morning at 6 o'clock surrounded by his family, at his residence on Elm street in the ninety-second year of his age. The following obituary which was prepared expressly for the Courier and appeared in yesterday's Register with our consent, gives a full resume of the principal events in the long and honorable life of the deceased and pays a modest but just tribute to his genuine and marked abilities in various fields of usefulness: Eli Whitnev Blake was born January 27, 1795, at Westboro, Mass. He graduated at Yale college in 1816. He intended to enter the legal profession and studied law in the then famous school or Judge uouia as utcn-field. Conn., but cave ud that purpose at the request of his uncle, Eli Whitney, who desired his assistance in erecting ana organ izine the eun factory works at Whitneyville, After the death of Mr. Whitney in 1825, Mr. Blake and his brother (the late Colonel Philos Blake) carried on the business until 1836, when tuey joined their brother, John A. Blake, in forming the partnership firm of Blake Brothers and established at Westville a manufactory of door locks and latches of their own invention. This ousiness was aiterwara extended to include other articles of hard ware, such as casters, hinges, etc., most of which were covered by patent. In this bran.co.of manufacture Blake Brothers were among the pioneers in this country and long held the front rank. It is not too much to say that the ideas which they originated still characterize the forms of American locks, latches, casters, hinges and other articles of house furnishing hardware wherever manu factured, and are the foundation of their acknowledged superiority. In the year 1852 Mr. Blake was appointed on a committee to superintend the macadam izing of Whalley avenue and his attention was thus directed to the great want of a ma chine for breaking stone into fragments of a nearly uniform size suitable tor road making The problem was a very old one, but no sue ceasful solution had ever been effected. Mr. Blake devoted himself to its study for nearly five years and in 1857 produced and patented the "Blake stone breaker," which for originality, simplicity and effectiveness has justly beta regarded by experts as almost unique. It has since come into gene ral use in all parts of the world for road making and for mining purposes ; and bos introduced a new era into both depart ments of industry. Its value directly and indirectly as a labor-saving and wealth creating agency can hardly be over-estimated. The occurrence of the civil war, however, which retarded its introduction, and subse quent competition by infringers of the patent, greatly interfered with the profits that the inventor should have realized, and the pecuniary reward which Mr. Blake reaped from this and his other inventions amounted in the end to only a moderate competence. Mr. Blake's abilities and acquirements in the field of mathematical and physical science were of a high order, and he contributed many valuable papers to scientific journals on various subjects. Several of the most important of these which had been recently published in the American Journal of Science together with some additions of a late date were collected by him in 1004 and printed together in a small volume entitled "Original Solutions of Several Problems in Aerodynamics. Ihese papers, which were the result of original research and experi ment, treat of the laws which govern the flow of elastic fluids through an onhce: the pro pagation of pulses in elastic media: the mode of expansion of elastic fluids; and the velocity and transmission of sound. The final paper aud perhaps the most elaborate of all, covering many printed pages ot close scientific and mathematical discussion, was writen by him when far advanced in his eighty-seventh year. The originality and valne'of Mr. Blake's investigations in this and other subjects, and also his ability and general merit as a physicist were recognized by scientific authorities at home and abroad and drew from his alma mater, Yale, in 1879, the honorary degree of L L. D. He was one of the founders and for several years the president of the Connecticut Academy of Science. In 1821 Mr. Blake united with the Center church, and for over sixty-five years was identified with its growth and prosperity. In 1822 he married Miss Eliza O'Brien of New Haven, whose self sacrificing fidelity and devotion in all the relations of wife and mother brought unbroken domestic happi ness to him and his household until her death in 1876. Seven of their children sur vive him. Few men have more worthily enjoyed th reverence and affection of their families and friends and to few have these been rendered in larger measure. His name was synonymous with integrity. His benevolence was like a fountain, active, spontaneous and overflowing. The poor were always in his thoughts. He was considerate and liberal as well as just in all business transactions. He took a deep interest in public affairs and was the outspoken supporter of civil and social progress and virtue. The later years of his life were spent in peaceful retirement in the midst of his family circle attended "by all that should accompany old age, as honor, love, obedience, troops of friends." In that quiet retreat his mind in its strength and serenity diffused perpetual sunshine. Men of intellect and culture sought him to enjoy the wit and wisdom of his conversation. Little children, whom he dearly loved, delighted to throng about him; and none could enter that benignant presence without feeling how truly "the hoary head is a crown of glory, when it is found in the way of righteousness.' From Derby. A big excursion party from all parts of Derby will go to Mystic Island next Tuesday, the 24th, on the Elm City. The affair is under the auspices of Ousatonio lodge, I.O.O.F. A Candidate for Senator. Thomas Stephenson, a machinist of Hart ford, has nominated himself after the old country fashion as the workingmen's candidate for senator from the First district. Mr. Stephenson will conduct his own canvass. A Sad Case ot suicide. William R. Marr, .aged twenty-three years, of Bristol, committed suicide yesterday by taking poison. Last week Mr. Marr and his mother came to Hartford and secured a position for him in an insurance office, which he was to enter yesterday morning. He dread ed to assume the new duties which he was about to enter upon, and killed himself to avoid doing so, He was twenty-three years of age, and leaves a father and mother to morn his loss. His habits were exceedingly good, and he was the only child of the family. SUMMER VACATIONS. Jottings Regarding New Haven People And Other People Enjoyment Among; The Catsltllls. C. M.

STILL IN THE DARK. The Shoe Box Mystery as Much ot a Mystery as Ever The Authorities Still Hard at Work on the Case. "Have the authorities got any more clues?" was the leading question asked by every passer-by of a Courier reporter as the latter Blowly climbed the hill leading from the depot to Constable Austin's office yesterday afternoon. In front of the little one story building in which the constable has his office sat Constable Austin, with a tired look en his face, smoking a cigar. The reporter sat down beside the constable and a crowd of town idlers gathered around expecting to hear something startling about Wallingf ord's mysterious murder case. When Constable Austin was asked what was new in the case, a half smile illuminated his countenance as he replied, "Absolutely nothing; and we stand just where we did two days ago, with the exception that Henry Lincoln of North-ford, who disappeared about six weeks ago and whom it was thought might be the vic tim of this foul murder, has turned up all right. Now we must find another miss ing man. But," continued the constable, with a sly wink, "you just wait for a few davs until the excitement over the affair has somewhat quieted down and the murderer or murderers become less cautious, and then something bis will turn up. Coro ner Mix has the two small locks of hair which I found the other day near the scene of the finding of the box, but what he in tends to do with them I don't know, al though I suppose he will turn them over to Medical Examiner White for a microscopic examination, as they may have an important bearing on the case in question. The coroner did not take the piece of scalp with him as he did not consider it of enough impor tance so to do, but I shall have to buy a new siit of clothes soon if I find much more such stuff, on account of the scent it izives mv clothing." He. the constable, was called away and the crowd scattered to come together again on their favorite corner near the postoffiee, and talk over the fall crops for want of something more interesting. At the depot the reporter found Ticket Agent Tuttle busily engaged in stamping tickets, but not too much so to say a few words about the murder case. He still holds to the theory that the box was brought from Cheshire, and not from Wallingford or Yales-ville, andjby parties who knew the lay of the land in that vicinity. His theory may be of some importance. He is the only valuable witness the State is said yet to have secured, and his may not be theory but fact. When asked why he thought the parties did not put the box in the old copper mine near where the box was iound, he said : "Why didn't they? well I suppose they knew better. The copper mine is opened by parties from three to tour times a year, and tae parties wno murdered the man probably knew this and so did not put it there. I think," continued the ticket agent, "that some one will find another feox somewhere m that strip of woods containing the missing portions of the corpse and then the mystery will be cleared up. "The fact that both Coroner Mix, Detective Mo-Namara and Constable Austin are still hard at work on the case, leads many to believe they have some important clue which they are working np. Coroner Mix was asked last evening about the case, and stated that there were no new developments, but that Dr. White would finish his chemical examination of the dead man's stomach in a few days which may result in something in teresting. The coroner is constantly in re ceipt of letters from all parts of the country from friends of missing men asking for a description of the body and other particulars about it. AT SAVIN ROCK. A Big Illumination The Blneflsh Scarce Picnics. There will be a grand illumination at Savin Rock next Wednesday night. The fireworks display will be engineered by John D. Bradley of this city.

Improvements In Various Parts or the City Mr. Sullivan's Resolution delating to the City Enelneer's Department Defeated Other Resolutions Introduced and Passed. A special meeting of the Board of Public Works was held last evening, His Honor Mayor Holcomb in the chair. Members of the Board present were Messrs. Crawford, Whitney, Reilly, Staokpole, Gilbert and Sullivan. The committee to whom was referred needed repairs on Quinnipiac bridge reported that the fender pier needed repairing, also that the iron work under the bridge needed repainting. - The committee had previously been given power to have needed repairs made. ' Bids for a sewer in Broad street between Palmer and Cedar streets were opened as follows : P. Maher, $350 ; Anthony Carroll, $290; Matthew Kehoe, $284. The contract was awarded to Mr. Kehoe. Orders for curbs, sidewalks and relay of walks in various parts of the city, as ordered by the Court of Common Council, were referred to the clerk to notify parties in interest, and the city engineer to give lines and grades. Mr. Sullivan reported that with Engineer Hill he had examined the property corner of Hamilton and Walnut streets where M. Dillon had complained that the estate of B. Reilly should have 100 feet and found that they had only 96 feet. The mere stone seemed to be set wrong. Mr. Hill said that the better way to get over the difficulty was to have a new layout of Walnut street made. On motion it was voted to make a new layout of Walnut Btreet. The clerk was instructed to notify the West Haven and New Haven horse railroad company to pave between their tracks on Howard and Sylvan avenues before October 1st, 1886, in accordance with an order from the Court of Common Council. The order for a sewer in Shelton"street was laid on the table. It was voted to advertise for bids for a sewer in Grand avenue between Blatchley avenue and Poplar street and in Wallace street from Myrtle to Locust street, the bids to be opened at the next meeting. Mr. Sullivan moved to take from the table the resolution proposed by him last week which provides that all men employed in the road department in whatever capacity shall be engaged by the Board of Public Works and their salaries regulated by said Board and shall be discharged by Baid Board, except in cases of the superintendent of streets and the superintendent of parks. Another resolution provided that hereafter no committee of the Board ot fublic works or any man employed by said Board shall have power to make a contract with any per son or persons without the consent of a majority of said Board. After the resolutions were read Mr. Crawford said that as the resolutions affected the engineer's department more than any other he would like to hear what Engineer Hill had to sav on the subject. Engineer Hill said that, as it appeared to him, the resolutions were aimed directly at his department, as he had had the power to employ and discharge his assistants, tie said he thought the efficiency of his department depended upon the continuance of this system. Mr. Sullivan said he did not believe in delegating the power given the Board of Public Works to anybody. Neither the chief of police or fire department had the power to employ and discharge men at will and he did not believe in delegating such power to the city engineer. He said he did not desire to curtail Mr. Hill, but he thought when he discharged or hired any men he should report the same to this Board tor their approval, and this Board should fix the salaries of such men as were hired and not the engineer. Mr. Crawford said that he thought the resolutions were entirely uncalled for. If any charges were made against the city engineer he would stand as ready as anyone to have the matter investigated, bnt, so far as he knew, no such charges had been made. In conclusion Mr. Crawford moved that the resolutions be indefinitely postponed. Mr. Whitney seconded the motion. The Mayor put the question, and there was a tie vote. His Honor then said that he should dissolve the tie by voting to indefinitely postpone. He said if there were any heads of departments that were not qualified for their positions, then they should be discharged at once. Mr. Sullivan introduced another resolution providing that the superintendent of streets and the superintendent of parks shall pay all men in their employ at the supply house and the State House. Also that it shall be the duty of said superintendents to keep a weekly pay roll on which the names and residences of all persons working in their respective departments shall appear, and also the time and amount due. Said pay roll or a certified copy of it shall be returned to the Board of Pnblic Works at their first meeting preceding the first Thursday of each month; except in Fair Haven, where the men employed shall be paid at their headquarters The resolutions were passed and the Board adjourned. Do They Sell Bogus Butter. Late yesterday afternoon Grocer Martin Schwaner, 161 Grand street; John Guyer, 149 Congress avenue; Michael Phalen, 171 Congress avenue, were ' arrested for selling oleomargarine on complaint of Commissioner Tatem. Schwaner refused to sell Mr. Tatem any bogus butter. FAIR HAVEN. Death or M. Kleiner's Little Son -A Flshine: Party Another Sharpie Race Imminent. Mr. Levi S. Rowe and family, of Prospect street, have arrived home from Morristown, N. J. Israel, the infant son of Mr. Kleiner, the dry goods merchant, died Tuesday night of pneumonia croup, aged fourteen months. The funeral will take place to-day. There is quite an active interest taken in the project of getting up another sharpie race at Savin Rock, by the local boatmen. The race held at the Rock August 5 at the Grand Army picnic was not entirely satisfactory to the owners of some of Fair Haven's flyers on account ef the lightness of the wind and the fact of each boat being limited to a certain amount of canvas proportionate to the capacity of the boat. Savin Rock parties, it is said, are anxious to have another race sailed off that resort and will probably raise a purse. Fred. Rowe, Will. Horton and other well known boatmen are taking much interest in the scheme, and it seems likely that some half a dozen of the boys will enter the race if a purse is raised. It is understood that each boat entering will be allowed to carry as much sail as it can possibly stand up under and the race if it comes off will be highly exciting. Rev. AH Vibbert has returned from his vacation trip considerably rested . It will probably be ail of two months before the double tracks from Fair Haven to the city can be laid on account of the Grand avenue sewer. Work will soon be begun on both ends of the Fair Haven branch of the road and the rails laid towards the center. Mrs. G. A. Clark will soon pay a visit to Miss Atwater in Suffield. Clifford Hoyt is talking of taking out a fishing party on his steamer, the C.W. Hoyt, the latter end of the week. Harry Brainerd, of New York, has been spending two weeks with Mr. Giles W. Clark, of South Quinnipiac street. . Before Golne To camp Smith Visit Mendel fc Freedman'sf TT Chapel Street, Headquarters for gents' furnishings. Largest assortment of flannel shirts in the city.
