ELECTION Day is cominsr and the voters will he ell excitement for a few days and then all is over, but bow happy all of us would feel if we could bear some "old rooster" crowing out loud every morn ing that flour had "dropped $2.00 a bar rel, the amount it h:iS raised since Mr Kinley took the reins or that we could give 25 lbs granulated sugar for$l.i0, same as we used to give before McKiu ley pot to he boss, instead of IS lbs which is all we can give at present. Or that the MuKinley bill or the Wilson bill, or the Dingley bill or some other oldbill was doinsr us some go.id, or liow happy the politician would leel if he tiid'nt have to plank down his boo dle of Cold (. ash on election day.

C., Is spending a va cation of several weeks with James Condon of Bergin street. Wailhams post, G. A. It. will give a bean bake to-morrow night and invite the Sons of Veterans to partake of the menu and join in the festivities that will follow. Surely, things are booming on Dub lin street. A barber shop will be opened in a short time by James Ryan, in the Roper building on this street. For awhile this little innovation will make the people forget about that warped board walk at the depot. Court Acme, F. of A., will give ano ther of their popular smokers on Thursday evening, commencing at 9:30, at the conclusion of their .regular business meeting. A good programme has been arranged and it is an as sured success. A "Democrat" reporter was sur prised to see an "out east" young lady leap from a moving trolley last even ing, with all the ease of an expert. Inquiry developed the fact that this Is a common custom of the lady'. The conductor said he wished all young women could alight as quickly, but the reporter thought it rather a risky practice. In the police court this morning Judge Burpee presiding, P. F. Lunny was charged with assault on William McCarthy, and had sentence suspend ed. Both are hackmen and had a difference of opinion which wound up up in blows, but the trouble was to find out which was the aggressor, each one with witnesses, stating that the other fellow struck the first blow. The lecture of the Rev Father Slocum for the St Vincent de Paul society on Sunday evening, will undoubtedly at tract an immense audience. The speaker will relate an interesting story of his travels, and it is expected that City hall will be crowded. The tickets are now on sale' at the stores of James F. Phelan, Duncan's Pharmacy, the Waterbury Drug Co, E. J. Finn and J. J. Geraghty. The numerous friends of Miss Flora Monty of 324 South Main street, spent a very enjoyable evening last night, when they were invited to meet a newlv wedded pair from Sancook, N. H., Mr and Mrs E. Rainville, the bride being a cousin' of the hostess. Danc ing and music beguiled the hours until near morning, when they reluctantly broke up, all 'acknowledging that the party had been a huge success. Music was furnished by the Italian Mandolin club. The Italian exhibition of fireworks, given on the Heffiin lot, corner of Dublin and East Main streets last night, drew a crowd that blocked the adjacent streets and filled the lot where the fireworks were set off. It was a great display and many specta tors declared it was the best exhibition of its kind ever given in this city. The sets were excellent and everything went off without a mishap. The cele bration was in honor of St Rocco, ana is a national Italian custom. The state convention of the Catholic Benevolent Legion was held m Stam ford yesterday, when the following officers were elected: President, John F. O'Brien, Middletown; vice president, M. J. Mullins, Stamford; secretary James Scanlon, New Britain; treasurer Miles McNiff. Waterbury; orator, Thomas F.

The following Is a complete list of the officers elected at the twenty eighth annual convention of the C. T. A. U. in St Patrick's hall yesterday: President, Rev John T. Winters, South Norwalk; first vice-president, J. J. Mc Donald, Waterbury; second vice-presi dent, Mrs Harriet Gragan, Menden; secretary, John Kelly, New Britain; treasurer, Charles Fitzgerald, Middle town; state editor, Thomas F. Fitzger ald, Winsted; delegates to Boston na tional'convention, Patrick Kent, New Haven; M. J. Keyes, Bridgeport; Miss Mary Sulivan, New Haven. The beau tiful banner offered to the society showing the largest increase in mem bership since the convention of 1S96 was carried off by the St Gertrude league of New Haven, the society hav ing taken in 125 new members during the past year. This was a big victory for the Elm city people, and Father Winters' remarks in presenting it to the society evoked great applause. The convention finished its labors at 5:30 o'clock. It was a very harmonious gathering, and those who watched it through the day's work was much pleased with the manner in which the business was disposed of and pro nounced Father Winters an ideal chair man, crediting him with much of the success which attended the convention. Annie Scully, aged 17 years, died at 12 o'clock last night at the family resi dence, 20 Washington street, after an illness of about ten weeks. The de ceased was a young lady of rare qual ities of heart and mind and was a gen eral favorite among a large circle of relatives and friends. She was a pop ular pupil of the Washington school, where she was class historian of the eighth grade in June. Shortly after this she was taken sick, and acting on the advice o the family physician she was sent to Litchfield, but she did not improve and a few weeks later it was deemed wise to have her return home, and since that time her death had been looked for at any moment. She was conscious to the last moment and ap peared well reconciled to pass over to the great majority, though on one or two occasions she stated that if God willed it she would prefer to be spared to linger a few years longer amid the scenes and among the friends of her childhood. She was a daughter of the late Alderman John J. Scully, who died December 5, 1S9G. Four sisters survive her, Minnie, Nellie, Gertrude and Genevieve. The funeral will take place at 8:30 o'clock Friday morning, with a. mass of requiem at the church of St Francis Xavier and interment in the family plot in St Joseph's cemetery. "McFad den's Row of Flats" at the opera house this evening. ' Mary C, the four years old daughter of Mr and Mrs Edward B .Hardie, 7 Hawkins street, died this morning. The funeral will take place at 3 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. Nicholas, the 10-months-old son of Mr and Mrs Michael Casey of Bridge street, died this morning. The funeral took place at 2 o'clock this afternoon, with interment in Calvary cemetery. James, the infant son of Mr and Mrs James Healey, 688 Baldwin street, died last night. The funeral will take place at 2:30 o'clock to-morrow afternoon, with interment in St Joseph's ceme tery. James J. McLinden, for some time past manager of the Waterbury Drug Co's store at 667 East Main street, re signed his position there to-day, and will leave to-morrow to resume his studies in the medical department, of the University of Pennslyvania. The funeral of Ellen Lally took place this morning from her late resi dence on Mohawk park to the church of St Francis Xavier, where a mass of requiem was celebrated by the Rev Father Curtin. The pallbearers were James Flynn, Edward Bergin, Joseph J. and John Wall, Michael Bowe and John Moore. The interment was in St Joseph's cemetery. The base ball game between the doc tors and the lawyers, which will take place on the Y. M. C. A. grounds Fri day afternoon, promises to be a lively contest and is sure to attract a large attendance. The receipts will be turned over to the Hospital Aid soci ety, and it is expected that the dona tion will be a handsome one. Some of the limbs of the law are having consid erable rivalry for places on the nine, and the physicians declare that it would be well that every lawyer in town should be present and give their rea sons for the statement that all their number will be used up before the close of the ninth inning. Others allege that the affair will be something like the game which George Kleeber pitched for a barber's nine in New York about fifteen years ago, against a nine made up of butchers which lasted from early in the morning until night and was declared a draw at the close of the eighty-sixth inning. The Waterbury Furniture Co has had quite a good many attractions in its show windows on East Main street dur ing the past year or two, each of which attracted more or less attention, but they were all tame affairs compared with the one to be seen there to-day, which consists of a bouncing young girl, who prepares biscuits and coffee in a jiffy and passes the same out to all comers free of charge. A number of young men, and some old fellows, too, paid a visit to the place this after noon and pronounced the cook and her coffee and cakes the biggest attraction the management ever brought to town. She will be on exhibition this evening, and proposes to show housekeepers how to do a. week's cooking for a whole family without burning a third of a hodful of coal. A couple of prom inent East Main street residents, one a physician and the other a real estate broker, drank such a mess of coffee and ate so much biscuit there this after noon that they can well afford to fast for the rest of the week. It would be difficult to tell whether it was the be witching smile of the fair cook or the delightful flavor of the coffee which had the greater charm for all who paid a visit to the place. FIRE AT GREENWICH. ANOTHER SECOND WARD TICKET. Another second ward ticket was presented late this afternoon and is as follows: Aldermen, Adrian F. Wolff, William T. Disley and John Sachen hauser.

Vancouver, B. C, Sept 22. The steamship Empress of India arrived last evening from the Orient bringing the following advices: Serious riots have occurred in Na jano Prefect, in consequence of the discontent felt over the high price of rice. A mob of 2,000 persons attacked the residence of a bank manager and also that of the manager of a rice mill and the police had to charge them with drawn swords before they were dis persed. Several persons were killed and wounded and numerous arrests were made. Reports from all parts of Japan in dicate that the rice crop this year will be exceptionally good, in fact it is pre dicted that it will exceed anything seen during the past ten years. The Japanese government is reported to have taken 200,000 out of the re maining $300,000 shares of the Formosa railway and has persuaded Formosans to take up the balance. Locomotives and cars a.re expected shortly from America. The work will be proceeded with immediately.

Ever' care has been taken to procure the latest and best styles, and our stock is in evidence of our success in this direction. I. CHASE, EXCHANGE PLACE. The Unitarian Conference and Its Re lation to the Bible. Saratoga, N. Y., Sept 22 "The Old Theology and tho New," was the topic taken up at tho morning session of the Unitarian conference. Papers were read "In Relation to History and Phil osophy," by the Rev John Chadwick of Brooklyn, N. Y., and "In Relation to Bible Criticism" by the Rev W. S. Crowe, D. D. The Rev Charles F. Dole of Jamaica Plain, Boston, discussed "The points of contact and difference between Uni tarianism and the new orthodoxy." Mr Dole defined the new orthodoxy as substantially the same system of re ligious philosophy as Unitarians hold, with the same idea of the universe. It has got rid of the devil, the fall of man, and like pieces of the medieval scheme. In three points the new orthodoxy holds to the ideas of the earlier system inconsistent with its more modern thought. Its ideas of the Bible is a misfit of this sort. The unique, or authoritative Bible matched with the idea of a lost world saved by miracle. The new thought brings the books of the Bible in their natural place in the literature of the world. They are authoritative just so far as their truthfulness and moral inspiration stir men's hearts and compel confidence. The "new ortho doxy", does not frankly accept this modern view of the Bible. The idea of Jesus' life as unique and exceptional is also a survival from the medieval system of catastrophe, mir acle and intervention. Jesus holds in modern thought . his proper rank among the great helpers of the race, but his place is in no way outside the natural order of humanity. The difference between the new or thodoxy and modern unitarian thought, Mr Dole continued, "are not very important. It is highly import ant, however, that the minds of re ligious leaders and teachers shall be perfectly free and unfettered." TIMELY TOPICS. E. G.
