Waterbury is acquiring an unenviable notoriety on account of the antics of the man who burlesques justice while pre siding over its city court. After its pre vious experience with him it is strange and not creditable that its citizens did not make a unanimous protest to the legislature against his appointment to a position which, of all men in that city, lie is the least qualified to fill satisfactor ily.

Identified With Southern Enterprises For Forty-one Tears and Honored by a Spe cial Day at Atlanta Ills Transportation Interests Ills Remarkable Career." Thero is little doubt that tho new south owes as much of its present indus trial development to H. B. Plant as to any other one man. Indeed there is no other one probably who has dona so much ix that direction. Certain it is that the residents of the southeast quar ter of Uncle Sam's farm consider them selves uisder great obligations to Mr. Plant, and this was exempli2e4 only recently, when the managers of the At lanta exhibition designated one day to his special honor (Oct. 17, his seventy sixth birthday, by the way), a distinc tion which is rare enough to make it specially notable. Mr. Plant has wen the respect and esteem of the southern. people as a busi ness man, and justly so, sinco in that capacity ho has wrought veritable won ders and has displayed the nerve ad farsightedness of a great general, knowledge of human nature such as must be shown by a shrewd politician, executive ability like that required by the head cf a great state and a greater imagination than is often possessed by the most eminent writers and artists. He was born in Branf crd, Conn. Like many another eminent man of the pres ent time he received little school train- H. B. PLANT, ing, although he was privileged to finish his formal education at the Lancasterian school in New Haven. When he was 20, he was employed as an express messen ger by the New Haven Steamboat com pany, and a little later he was put in charge of the express business both on the steamboats which ply between New Haven and New York and on the New York and New Haven railroad. "When the Adams Express company was formed in 1854, he was chosen as the proper man to put in charge of the southern branch of the company's business. That was 41 years ago, and his interests have been identical with those of the south ever since. He , remained in charge of this branch until 1861, the year of the breaking out of tho civil war, when the southern business cf the Adams com pany was turned over to the then newly organized Southern Express company, of which he was made the first president, a responsible post which he still fills. It was Mr. Plant who first discerned the place Florida wa3 destined to fill a3 a winter resort for the physically feeble. In 1854, the first year of his residence south, he took his wife, who was ailing, to that state. Her life was prolonged for years thereafter by the mild Florida air. At the very beginning Mr. Plant saw the necessity of railroads in Florida, and he was among the earliest pur chasers of stocks and bonds issued by railroad companies in Georgia and Flor ida, though he cut no figure as a rail road manager nntil 1879. Perhaps the most picturesque and in teresting portion of his career cameVith the breaking out of the civil war. Mr. Plant was not a partisan of either side. The Southern Express company had just been established, and it became at once apparent that the business, and perhaps the very existence of the new corpora tion, was in serious danger. So he went to Jefferson Davis, president of the Con federacy. To him the express manager explained the situation, declaring frank ly, that he was not a partisan, but lay ing stress on the advantage it would be to the south if the business of the ex press company could go on uninterrupt edly. This would hardly be possible, he added, unless he were personally al lowed to go wherever he pleased with out any hindrance whatever. So convincingly did Mr. Plant present his case that Mr. Davis gave him the desired permission, issuing a pass allow ing the freest movement through the lines, entrance to headquarters at will; and in brief extending the greatest im aginable freedom at all times and in all circumstances to the bearer. It was by reason of this unusual pass that the Southern Express company was enabled to continue its business daring all the years of strife between the north and the south. In 1867 the Texas Express company was formed, and Mr. Plant was made president thereof, which office he yet holds. In 1879 he purchased the Atlantic and Gulf railroad of Georgia, and then began his career as creator, re storer and manager of steamer and rail road lines. Today he is at the head of the Plant Investment company, which embraces 12 railroad corporations, with a mileage of 1,941 ; the Southern and Texas Express companies, with a mileage of 24,412, and reaching into 15 states, and of the Plant steamboat and steamship lines, doing business between the gulf ports and the West Indies, and the Atlantic ports cf the United States and the Do minion of Canada. The Investment com pany owns four of the great hotels of Florida, and its stockholders and direct ors include such men as H. M. Flagler, M. K. Jesup, W. T. Walters, B. F. Newcomer, B. B. Haskell and othsrs. '"f Great Values. The Kind You Want Just at tho Timo you Want Them, Too. Those choice 15 00 to 18 00 SUITS for 11 91. Those great value at 11 00 to 14 00 SUITS for 8 89.
