William Cummings Arrested on Suspicion of Incendiarism.
MILFORD, Conn., April 15. - Milford had another lot of excitement last night because of three fires, undoubtedly or incendiary origin, making six fires in the town within about one week.
The first fire broke out about midnight in a boarding house, and in short order two barns were discovered in flames. In none of the cases was great damage done. The last fire was in the barn of Thomas Phalen, and William Cummings, a well-known young man, was arrested on suspicion. He will be tried to-day.
