WATERBUKY EVENING DEMOCRAT, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER
1897. ELECTION "Day is coming and the voters will be all excitement for a few days and then all is over, hut how happy all of us would feel if we could hear some "old rooster" crowing out loud every morn ing that flour h:ul dropped $2.00 a bar rel, the amount it has raised since Mc Kinley took the reins or that we could give5 lbs granulated sugar for $1. HO, same as we use! to give before MeKiu ley got to be boss, instead of IS lbs which is all we can give at present. Or that the MeKinley bill or the Wilson bill, or the Dingley bill or some .other oldbill was doing us some good, or how happy the politician would ieel if he did'nt have to plank down his boo dle of Cold Cash on election day. Happiness is something we all look for, and when it enters the household life is worth living for. Now sometimes a Dri r will make a person happy and particu larly so if you drink "Urass City" triple blend coffee, the kind we are putting into a very neat one quart milk pail and Belling the whole business for 25c per pail for a few days only and a full pound An each pail at ' Phelan s T Store, II East Main St. :: CTaterbury WINE AND CIDER PRESSES, .

"The members of the lodge of Elks will meet at the "Democrat" office at 8 o'clock to-night, to take action on the death of John P. Lawlor. The funeral of James, the infant son of Mr and Mrs James Healey of Bald win street, took place this afternoon with interment in St Joseph's cemetery. 'Miss Sarah McBride, of New York, who has been visiting the family of Joseph Kennerney, on Silver street, will return home on Monday after a pleasant vacation. Royal K., the ten months old son of Mr and Mrs Oscar Fairchild of Mill Plain, died yesterday. The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon with interment in Pine Grove cemetery. John, the two years old son of Mr and Mrs Timothy Allman, 271 Baldwin street, died last night. The funeral took place at 4 o'clock this afternoon with interment in St Joseph's ceme tery.

The condition of the sidewalk on the east side of North Main street, from Abbott avenue to- the Benham stables, is deplorable. A particularly bad spot is the sidewalk just south of the Ben ham stables. The recent floods evi dently tore away the concrete and a load or two of sand has been dumped there to take the place of the concrete. It would seem as though this should not exist where there is so much travel. On account of the death of a mem ber, John Lawlor, the a dvertised smoker to be given by Court Acme, F. of A., to-night, has been indefinitely postponed. The various committees who had made all arrangements for the smoker have been busy all day cancelling orders and advertising the postponement. . Mr Lawlor was a charter member of this court.

The receipts will be donated to the Hospi tal Aid society. It would be difficult to tell what will be the outcome of the scramble, but, leaving that aside, it is safe to state that the contest will be full of interest for spectators.

Qi this ma For 01 r,oys s 'zes the ere alues. doubl e 50, $3, ich price mes, and of 50c to hoit Suits 10 to 16 r i I The Verdict of the Lower Court Sus tained in the Harbourne Case An Appeal Was Taken on the Ground That the Law is Unconstitutional A Misunderstanding About the Mc Grath Case Neither the Accused Nor Their Counsel Was Present. The criminal side of the district court opened this morning at 10 o'clock with Judge Cowell on the bench. Assistant clerk, William M. Gillette, filled the clerk's position and did it well. The first case called was that of John E. Harbourne, charged with keeping a place where money was taken to bet on horse races. Sergeant Cahey was the first witness. He told of the raid made on the rooms on East Main street on January 28 and to finding the accused behind the desk. Sergeant Cahey then took from his pocket a paper, and read a statement of the accused, admitting the following facts: That he was the manager of the rooms in question; that he did transmit money for the New Jersey News and Electric company, but did so believing that he had the right, and acting under the advice of the company, that it was legal to trans mit money from one state to another. This statement, it is understood, was made at the suggestion of the coun sel, Attorney Kenneally of Stamford and Attorney Russell of Waterbury. This was all the evidence introduced. Attorney Kenneally of Stamford then read a long statement asking the court to charge that if the accused was deemed guilty of the charges under the laws of the state, that they should find that the laws were not constitutional. Judge Cowell in his charge said: The prisoner at the bar is charged with an offense against the laws of the state. A recent act of the legislature made the offenses charged misdemeanors. The evidence in the case is brief. The accused admits the charge, but says that there was no crime committed as the law was unconstitutional. The de fense offers no testimony, and it is your duty to find from the evidence. The act of the legislature may or may not be constitutional, but that is not for this court to determine. The defense sets up a charge that each state is sovereign in its own rule. It is not, however, in the province of the district court to pass upon the constitutionality of the law. It is conceded that the legislature might have hastily passed a law which would be unconstitutional, but in this case I feel it my duty with out any unbecoming modesty, to charge you to bring in a verdict according to the evidence. The jury retired and were out five minutes, when they returned with a verdict of guilty. Judge Cowell im posed the same penalty as in the lower court, $100 and costs. Attorney Ken neally gave notice of an appeal . and the accused was released on the same bond of $500, given in the lower court. When the case of Hanora J. McGrath was called, neither Judge Root, her counsel, nor the accused herself, were present. A telephone was sent to Judge Root. Attorney Lawlor was present and Judge Cowell said he represented the office, and Attorney Lawlor replied that he did not. In the meantime Judge Root arrived and stated that he had received no notice of the caS. Prosecutor Branson said 'regretted that f act, i)Ut he had fom- iied with the rule an had notified the cused. He had niej h.iS list of cases the clerk witn the prescribed e and those cases had been pub- in the public Tress. If the rule quired him to notfy the attorneys would giacuy ao it. He did not care the bond, but tmwonian and her sband had both beei notified to ap- in court.

Superintendent Hendsey in vites everybody. To-night there will be present the man who said: "I'd like to be sober; but, be me sow!, if I drank wather in the morning, instead of whiskey, 'twould make me lazy all day." A funny incident was witnessed in front of the postoffiee this morning. A 'cyclist left his wheel standing at the curb while he went after his mail. A coal cart stopped close to-the wheel and the driver alighted. The horse evidently had a grudge against wheels, for no sooner had the man stepped from the cart than the horse reached for the wheel and grabbing the handle bar firmly in his mouth, lifted the wheel into the air and dropped it with a vengeance. The force of the contact with the pavement turned the handle bar completely around, but otherwise the wheel appeared to be uninjured. The incident was witnessed by several people who thought the horse a pretty tricky fellow. The owner of the wheel, however, did not see the joke. A Bigelow engine, S horse power, and a Campbell cylinder press, size 33x47, can be bought at a low figure, if taken soon. A bargain for any one that has use for the material. Call at "Democrat" office for .particulars. ' other three. He defended himself with a cue. Blood flowed and when the po lice arrived the fight was over. After the evidence was all in Downs said that he would like to have the case continued until he brought in wit nesses. This the court did. At two o'clock Downs had two colored men as witnesses, but both were mixed up as to the time of the assault. They had the story of the fight, but said it happened in the morning, not in the afternoon. Judge Lowe appeared for Kelly this afternoon. Downs made his own plea to the jury, which was good one. The case went to the jury at 3 o'clock. In the case of Morris Rose, Judge Cowell said he was sorry that he had appealed from the lower court, as the costs were now so much greater. ;:e imposed the lightest sentence he could, $1 and costs. When the case of Hanora J. Mc Grath was called this afternoon, Judge Cowell said that the woman should have sent in word and not show con tempt for tin court, but as counsel had agreed, the case went over until tomorrow. 1 13 J.t'JU.,r rr, TT, T .

High Premiums Offered For Center School District Bonds. The district committee held a meet ig last night and opened bids for $200, 000 worth of bonds, as follows: A. S. Kean, Chicago, 107.25; N. W. Harris & Co, New York, 107.49; Cushman, Fisher & Phelps, Boston, 106.31; E. R. Stanwood & Co, Boston, '103.52; R. L.

Gay & Co, New York, 105.53; Deitz, Denison & Prior, Boston, 106.06; E. H. Rollins & Sons, Boston, 106.146. After a conversation between Captain Wolff and Colonel Burpee, it was voted that Chairman Wolff be authorized to accept the offer of either of the-two highest bidders, after inves tigating their responsibility, and that he may exercise this power without further action . on the part of the members of the district committee. According to Superintendent Tinker's calculations the interest on the money would be less than four per cent. The recommendations of the board of edu cation in reference to the appointment of Miss Hayden as private secretary to Superintendent Tinker and of Leo Curley as an assistant teacher in the High school, was accepted and both are at work in their respective positions. "ALDERMAN" 0'HARA'S BOUQUET Stolen From His Office By the Wily Baker. Yesterday some one entered the office of Dr B. A. O'Hara, on East Main street, and walked off with a handsome bouquet of roses which was presented to the alderman immediately after it became known that his name had been put in nomination as candidate for al derman. No one knows who commit ted the theft, but suspicion rests on a well known baker who does business in that neighborhood, who was seen coming out of the ofiice with some thing more bulky than a five cent loaf under his arm. If the doctor can find out the name of the man who entered his place, he intends to prosecute him. The bouquet was seen last night in possession of a prominent lady clerk in Exchange place.

Chief of Police Bradley was assaulted by a ne gro known as "Pete," to-day. The chief was notified that a fight was in progress in John Malone's saloon, be tween Contractor Kane and John Tierney. He proceeded to the saloon and when he reached there he was struck with a shovel by Pete. He arrested him, the negro resisted and a scuffle ensued. Pete broke away and the chief fired his revolver in the air. Pete was over taken and fought the chief all the way to the station house and was helped along by his friends. Chief Bradley had to draw his revolver to keep the crowd back. He finally landed his man in the lockup. He is not seriously injured although a big gash was cut in the back of his hand.
