"Although New Haven has about 100,000 inhabitants, a six-story building is quite a novelty here. The Chicago 'sky scrapers' are heard of the world over, and have aroused our conservative real estate proprietors, and several new structures in modern style are contemplated. Mr. H. Warner's new six-story building next to the Republican League is attracting much attention."
They Play Whist.
"A veritable game of whist -- truly living whist -- is played on the stage. The four players in this city will be Roger Sherman, General Embler, E. C. Bennett and A. D. Osborn. Hearts are trumps and all the various parts of the game, as the deal, the shuffle, etc., will be produced on the stage by men and women in gorgeous costumes."
The League Give Their First Shore Dinner
"The Republican League club held their first shore dinner last night at Hill's homestead at Savin Rock. About half a hundred members of the club were present and many more who had gone out of the city to escape the suffocating weather sent their regrets... The regular shore dinner was served in elaborate style, consisting of: Little neck clams, stewed clams, bluefish, fried clams, broiled oysters, soft shell crabs, cold lobsters, champagne, appollinaris. The champagne had to be furnished by the club, as nothing could be bought of that kind at the shore."
