For otror a month report« of a wild man havln» an existence In thl« vicinity hare been current. What the exact sixe, shape and character of the alleged untamed male memtasr of the human family Is no one seems able to say with any degree of certainty. . , ^ It has been reported that he had been captured but this Is not so. A red onion with two holes bitten In It Is the strongest Wt of evidence yet oi- fered to prove the existence of such In the walked, and once when It Itruck a barbed wire fence the roar that came from its throat was like that of a wounded Hon. This is the terse and specific statement of the witness Webster. It will be ol^ served that he does not embellish It with any exaggerations about a fiery breath or a sulphurous odor, or any of those superstitious imaginings which have almMt destroyed the belief in wild men and Jabber wooke. John Hall, the stage driver, saw the uncanny creature Jum^ng from tree Jf«®* and going on all fours. He thought It was a cow at first, until ho heard It growl and as the cows In Litchfield county do not growl. Hall knew that he had eeen something out of common. Then comes John Robert Mci>onald Cleveland. Mr. Cleveland doe# not profess to be a connoisseur In Wild Men. He does not pretend to be able to classify the genus Into gronps, but when he Is confronted with a hoary howUmc fact he knows what he knows. John Robert McDonald Cleveland is a living, breathing witness, who has seen the Jabberwock of Wlnsted. Ho has been close enough to the creature to distinguish Its long fangs and see Its glittering baslUsk eye. He has personally witnessed thh Wild Man in the act of eating two, three, yea a doxen onions. He eays without hesitation, and ae the counti^ orators say, “without fear of Buecessful contradiction,” that the Jab- berwook le of such feareome aspect that It would loosen the skin on the frame of any ordinary man who would dare to look • upon it % IT VISITS DONAOHY.

John Hall's testimony, corroborative of .Dwight Webster’a rrs FIRST ^^PBARANCE. There exists not the ellghtest doubt In tho mind of any resident of Wlristed that Selectman Riley Smith really m®t r strange being in the wood#; that this be ing hsd n hirsute growth on Its face, through which the north wind was blpw ing; that it uttered a loud howl or y«U, and with amaring swiftness the reoeesee of the forest. Seectman Smith is a man-of probity and temperance. He Is not given to 'romancing. What he agw. he saw, and what he says he saw he saw. and that settles It. The thing scooted too suddenly for him to take .a close observation, but In the quick glahce that he got he sar that it bad a hnmkh face and a pair of guttering eyes. WHAT liOCK * PERKINS’S BROTHER SAW. Look Perklna who live« out on the Cole- hrook road, and’is the owner df the only red hOg tn Litchfield county, corroborates In a measure the testimony of the Selectman. Mr. Perktns’e brother and Mr. Perkins’s brotheria wife were visiting him last Sunday week, and after they had agreed that everything burning U]p for want" of rain Mrs. Perkins stepped entaide thé hpiise a moment to see If the horse was all right. In abont-flve ihlnutee she flew into the house with a hlanched face. “Sahee alive t” ihe cried. "Have you evil eperrlt# here, Lock?" What’s the mattcrr* asked Mr. Perklflli. Mrs. Perkins pointed to an open space In the rear of the houàe overlooking the wooded valley. There stood a motionless flgure. with its face turned away so that ft oould not be,ie«n. It looked like a man about six feet in height. Ixmg, tang^ hair fell over the eteoplng ahoulders. The arms were folded, and the body slight^ bent. The Perkins brother« were startled, but liOCft Perkins’s brother had the presence of mind to cough.ThUi caused theflg- «re to tun. and show iU face, which was Instantly recognized as the face seen by Selectman Smith. There could be no mistake. It wsa not an optical .Illusion. Lock Perkins was wide awake; so was his brother. Their minds were clear and un «flouded. They were in the presence of the Wild Man.

The arrivals seem^ to be far more numerous than usual. EnthusiasUo greetings were exchanged between tne delegates and their friends at the ofllcea of the party. The leaders were ipven a most hearty Welcome. At 11 o’clock a great meeting to welcome the delegate# was held In Concordia Hall. Owing to the enormous concourse of peoplo the police closed the hwi against new comers an hour before tne meeting began. Numbers of those who were not able to enter the hall etc^d about the streets in the close vlclnl^ until after the meeting was conriuded. Among those who spoke In the Herr Bebel, who was recrived with tu­ multous cheers. His address occup^d only sixteen minutes lu Its dellvepr. He depicted the distressed condition of tho German artisans and suggested measures for their betterment. Emperor Wl Uam, ho said, had on« promised a deputation of workmen to eW their handlcraftu as far as possible to regaining the Ooldenen Boden of yore. To bring about such a oondlUqa was impossible for any emperor-klng. It could only be achieved by eooiety in Its entlwty. The Socialists, he added, did not seek m reintroduce medieval conditions In the handicrafts, but to continue on the road of progress, to organise and combine, and to Joyfully and energetically flght to a triumphant cooclurion. Herr Bebel denounced the policy of protection, which he declared was only bolstered by capitalism. ^ ^ Upon the oonclusion of his speech Hew Bebel was greeted with cheei* that lasted for many minutes, after which the meeting quietly dispersed. Herr Vollmar’s Illness prevented his attending the congress. There la a strong force of police in the streets, but nobody looks for trouble. CORPORATIONS.

To make the policy of this Commonwealth respecting these organisations conform more closely to that obtaining In other States and foreign countries, we demand: 1-That all franchises hereafter granted to such corporations shall be for a fixed term of years, during which the company shall pay to the Commonwealth a fixed sum, peroentage of receipts or profits, or other compensation, and the franchises shall not be rev »cable so long as these and other conditions are complied with. 2-Th4t oltles and towns granting cure greater safeguards for the investor and lar^f responsibility to the public.

They become onerousiby too much legislation, the effect of which is to make capital timid and discourage Its investment In upper London circles the ex-Duchws of Marlborough hM acquired the title of the International Matchmaker, and this latest engagement will not diminish her claim to the name.

It wae a lost opportunity, but news of It travelled to America. The contemplated trip around the world was managed by Lady Bereeford, At first It was platined toat toe start should be toward Japan, arriving to New York on the way hom:», six months hence. The young duke rather fancied this plan, as he wanted tc reach China by autumn. But his stepmother persuaded him to «tart the other way, going to New York first.

BERLIN, Oct. «.—United States Ambassador Runyon entertained the American delegates to tae International Geodetic Congress at the American Embassy last evening. The delegates expressed their pleasure at the reception which had been accorded to thepi by the congress, which has paid particular attention to American researches. In pursuing this policy the congress recognised the propriety of placing Professor Chandler in the forefront of the delegates, who have been invited to be the guests of the Emperor at the new palaco in Potsdam. Y ears of experience have taught us the combination that suits CheWers. too last moment she WSJ not aWo to sail, so all alone be arrived In New York to be immediately passed along to Mrs. Willie K. at Newport. In doing all this the ex-duchesa has been actuated by the best of motives, "It will bo a love match," she has said a hundred times this season. "Charles has not a mercenary thought and Consuelo’s mind has never been touched by money." Wlto BO. much attention being paid her, Lily of Marlborough realised that if her stepson would marry a desirable American girl, and particularly the girl of her own choil^ his good qualities must be brought oqt or some Beau Brummel of soüHety would carry off the prize before him. Accordingly she has done all she oould. Eariy last tall Lady Beresford. whom the-duke has devotedly followed since his father's death, suggested that he write a history of Blcmhelm. In her own possession were many books relating to It since its building 800 years ago. and in Blenheim library was a whole row of volumes on toe house. Queen Anne gave the first duke money to build it as a reward for brave conduct In the war. But it was not fiilly finished until Lily completed It with her American money. Thè dnfce is naturally literary, and he set to woik to write. Waldorf Astor gave him a commission for the article, and he worked upon it faithfully. lASt January it appeared In toe Pall Mall Magaslne, and was very favorably reoelved. Scarcely necessary to say that "Blenheim and It* Memories" was sent by the dosen copies to the dnke’s friends to America by his stepmother.
