WATEEBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1897.
SYLVAN AVENUE IMPROVEMENT?. Property Owners Object to Having Their Land Confiscated. The board of public works held an adjourned meeting at 8 o'clock last night, there being present Commission ers Halpin, Clohessy, Houghton, Chat field, Baa-low, City Clerk It. F. Grady, Engineer Cairns and Snpc-rirtendent E. B. Reiley. Commissioner barlow was chosen chairman. Hearings were given to parties own ing property abutting newly completed sewers in Charles. Hickory, Wolcott and Watervllle streets. The only thing done about the matter was to inquire after the title of the property and the number of tee, abutting the street Timothy Horigan and Patrick Shea of Hickory street have greivances similar to that which annoyed Jeremiah, Crane f nonTiT street some time since. The sewer runs only a few into the street in front of their property and yet they will be called upon to pay as much as if it cleared the whole property, tne city taking the ground that the sewer 1b worth, as much to a man when it is brought to a point where he can con nnrtt with it as it would be in case it should be continued to the end of his line. Nothing definite was done in reference to the assessments. The hearing regarding the proposed layout pi Sylvan avenue from Stone street to the city line, and a building line ten feet back from, ana pareutu with, the same, was largely attended, alnrot all . the owners of property abutting that street being present "Whim-ft'a Svlvan avenue?" asked PommlMloner Chatfleld, looking around inquiringly. Mr Clohessy: "It is on the hill. It was always known as Quarry street until lately when the residents asked the name to be changed,." ' Mr Chatfleld: "Oh why I own a lot there myself." The proposed layout makes no prac tical change in the existing conditions la the street until it reaches a point opposite Luke street, where it lops off the corner of the property of Mrs p.nnia -Rafter and then continues southward to the city line, cutting into the property of Martin scuny an iue from twenty-one to twenty-six feet. On the east side it takes off four- feet at Timothy F. Meehan 8 Dam auu gives Thomas Reynolds and Mrs Mar garet! O'Reilly, ten feet running the entire length of their lots, the former mn ot and the latter between, 300 and 400. No one opposed the layout except James Flynn and Michael Coyle, the former being opposed to the whole project, but the latter stated that he should not claim damages for the ,4iriTiT unn Thomas Reynolds and James "Wall were not in favor of the building line. . . , iV Mr "Wall made a Drier aaaress m . course of which he said: "I'm not op- posed to anything that's reasonable, but I do object to the idea of being con stantly called upon to give up my prop erty for the accommodation of the pub lic, without getting a penny remunera tion for it. I have given enough land; too much, for nothing and if the city wants any more of my property it will par Cor it- You send fellows along to vaine a man's place who have no con ception, whatever of what it is worth and if a poor man does not like what a o must pither nut up with it or go to law. That's how I was treated in the Washrigton extension matter, but I'm going tvi be a little more care ful this time. 1 should have appealed from that assessment. It was out rageous and everybody said so. I don t ' want a ten foot building line, because I think people should have the privi lege of using every foot of their land for any legitimate purpose they may see fit to turn it to. It is not at al' ' likely that I shall ever build any nearer the street line than ten feet, but some one else might find it to his advantage to put a little store between his house and the street and I don't want to go on record as being opposed to allowing him to do it." All the other property owners pres ent had no objection to the layout, though Mr Scully stated that he should claim damages on account of the lay- The hearing was postponed until next Wednesday night. A delegation of Seymour street property owners, consisting of Joseph Sattler, Frederick Schmidt, Jacob Snyder, Charles Leissinger, Frederick Mast, Henry Kluttig and Frederick Miller, appeared before the board in regard to the condition of Seymour Street. The residents are living in constant dread of being drenched by surface water at any time of the year. The committee was informed that the city would do what it could to protect the people of that section from a repe tition of the damage done by the rain storms of last spring. Alfred Drescher appeared before the board in regard to sidewalks in front of two pieces of property on the cor ner of Maple avenue and Maple street, which have been ordered laid by the board of aldermen but which order has not been complied with by the prop erty owners. The board instructed Superintendent Reiley to see that the provisions of the ordinance in regard to sidewalks be carried out. p.. J. McDonald was heard against th alleged neglect of property owners in South street to lay walks in front rf their nremises as per order of the cltv. Superintendent Reiley was dl rected to present the facts in this case to the board of aldermen. John W. Oaffnev wanted permission to omit the Rosedale cement from the founda tion of the paving on Center street but the board refused to comply with the reauest. Bids were received lor cleaning about 10,000 cubic yards of the Wig- warn reservoir, as follows: Gaffney & Martin, bi cents per cudic yard. The Abbott Brothers Co, 45 cents per cubic yard. Bids were received for the construc tion of the retaining walls on the pipe line at Newell's gorge, as follows: Edward MoManus: Earth filling, 23 cents per cubic yard; rock excavation, $1.27 per cubic yard; rubble stone ma sonry, $4.95 per cubic yard. Total amount of bid, $1,032.05. , : Gaffney & Martin: Earth filling, 33 cenU per cubic yard; rock excavation, $4.50 per cubic yard; rubble stone ma sonry, $4.60 per cubic yard. Total amount of bid, $1,022.50. The Abbott Brothers Co: Earth flll ine, 42 cents per cubic yard; rock cx- oavation, $1.50 per cubic yard; rubble sumo amsoni-y, fl.'.'t per euoic yard. Total amount of bid, $ti l t.50. Both contracts wt.ie awarded to the Abbott Brothers Co. Tlir board adjourned until 7:30 1 o'clock this evening, when a meeting will be held to consider estimates for 1898. ST FRANCIS XAVIEIl FAIR. Everything in Readiness For the Opening To-Night. The fair of St Francis Xavier par ish will open this evening and prom ises to be the greatest social event that has ever been held in the city. Tho hall is handsomely decorated with a great variety of flags and bunting and presents quite a cheerful appearance. Neat portraits of prominent people are In evidence including very handsome ones of General Grant and Daniel O'Connell. The former will be deco rated with "Judge" Lewis' little Amer ican flag, one of six banners used in decorating the carriage in which Gen eral Grant rode at the big celebration held in Hartford, October 16, 1880. The St Francis Xavier drum corps will escort the members of the Second division, A. O. H., to the hall in full regalia at 8 o'clock and the entertain ment will be formally opened at 8:30 by the pastor, Rev J. J. Curtin, wlio will read General Harb'inson's letter telling the story of the banner which Mr Lewis has kindly loaned the man agement for the occasion. The hail is well filled with valuable articles, but notwithstanding this the Irish booth Is sure to be the principal attraction, and people will come from far and near to see it. There is no use trying to describe it, for in order to be fully appreciated, you must knock at the door and be admitted by the woman cf the house and see for yourself. It is an ideal cabin, typi cal in the fullest sense of the homes of the major portion of the inhabitants of the "island of song and story," and will remind many who will make a visit to the fair of scenes and inci dents connected with their lives in the far oft land and prompt them to say with Griffin: Here once my youthful moments flew. In joy like sunshine splendid; The brightest hours that e'er I knew, With those fair scenes were blended. " A few of the old folks are thinking of asking 'Father Curtin to allow" them to hold a Hallowe'en party in the cot tage either Saturday or Monday, but they don't know just how to go about it. If they should ask to rent it, the management might put the rent so high that there would be trouble, and then if they should decide to take pos session of it without permission, it is feared that there would be an eviction scene on the spot, for there will be two bailiffs in charge of the place day and night from the opening to the close of the entertainment. The hall will be open at 3 o'clock to morrow afternoon for the accommo dation of all who cannot call in the evening. Hla Threat roit Hlm Hla Life. A. San Jose, Cal., Oct. 29. After four :een days' trial Dan Dutcher, the 17-Vear-old farm hand, was acquitted of he murder of Ranchman Schofleld. Ktter the verdict Mrs. Schoneld, who lad been held as an accessory, was re- eased. Schoneld wanted to mortgage its ranch in order to go to the Klon like, but his wife refused. They ,had violent quarrels, and In one of them Schoneld seized a gun and threatened o kill his wife, when young Dutcher ihot him dead. The wife and boy at lrst asserted that Schofleld was as- asslnated by some enemy, but after- yard confessed. Dutcher believed he vas in earnest when he threatenad to UIl his wife, and so shot him. r.yn Ulnar In Arizona, Clifton, Ariz., Oct. 29. At Morenci, a 3opper camp near Clifton, an inoffen jive Mexican laborer was found near he Detroit smelters with a bullet-hole hrough his neck and his head smashed .o a pulp. Juan Madera, supposed to 'je one of the Chacon gang, that tried o capture the town several months ago, was arrested ror tne crime and placed in the camp jail. Shortly after the arrest several hundred Mexicans stormed the Jail, broke down the door, md rlddlpd Madera with bullets. Later a second murdered Mexican was found on the trail toward Duncan, in the outskirts of Morenci. It is thought that both murders were the work of the man lynched. Murderer Meyer I mile tea.

Among the beneficiaries of the Pullman will s tVllliam Wells, one of the White House servants. He is to receive $3,080, and lis brother, Arthur, is to receive $5,000.

He was detailed is porter to President Harrison on the notable trip to the Paclno coast in 1891 ind during the Cleveland Administra- 'aon Kot a place at the White House. j . - - " Farmer Killed. Reading, Pa., Oct. 29. John Lommox, a farmer of Frederick township, was driving from his home to the store In his carriage yesterday morning. His horse took fright at a bicycle and ran away.

A large supply of automobile torpedoes ready for im mediate service on 'board ships is to be purchased by the navy, and a contract has been awarded for twenty-five of the latest improved type, costing $70,000 tor the entire lot. Other large orders r ill be given later. ANXIE LOUISE AMES, A Demand That Mrs Jean Jacques Again Go On the Stage. In last week's edition of the Dramat ic Mirror, the following notice ap peared: "Annie Louise Ames (Mrs Jean Jacques) who retired from the stage pome time ago, has decided to return to her former love and now invites offers from reputable attractions. She may be addressed care this office." A "Democrat" reporter called on Mrs Jacques in regard to the above and got tho following information from her: She says that lately she has been re ceiving a perfect deluge of mail from managers wishing her services. This mail became such a burden to her that Mr Jacques decided to put In this card, so that he could then take care of the correspondence for her and save her the annoyance. When asked if there was anything definite in the apparent desire on her part to enter theatricals again. Mrs Jacques said that the news was a little premature as yet, but that there was a possibility of her going on next season. It was not her intention, however to go on this season, and the notice was put in the Mirror by Mr Jacques to save her the care of her large correspondence. BEGGING FOR DELA1. The Coates Syndicate Wants U. P. Sale Postponed. LONDON, Oct. 29. Long cable mes sages have been sent to United States Attorney General McKenna in the mat ter of the Union Pacific railway sale on behalf of the Coates syndicate, mak ing offers meeting the objections raised. The syndicate claims that its bid would produce $20,000,000 more to the govern ment than any other bid and urges that tha sale be adjourned until Dec. 15 to enable congress to determine as to the advisability of the acceptance of bonds in part payment. Coates, Son & Co. contend that by the sale of the Union Pacific separately the United States government will be a loser, while they (Coates, Son & Co.) propose to pay the government in full for both rbads. The final cable message sent Wednes day asserts that the latest Schiff bid Is Very little better than the previous bids and that "once Mr. Schiff has secured the Union Pacific he will have the Kan sas division at his mercy and be able io get it' at his own price. The dis patch concludes as follows: "If the government secures a post ponement of both sales to Dec. 15, the Coates syndicate will furnish guaran tees to pay In full the government claims on both roads. Congress can then determine whether, both roada should not be sold concurrently. By our bids we have already earned $8, 000,000 for the government and ?.re, therefore, entitled to a fair opportunity, to more than four weeks' notice" of sale of. these great railroads, to secure the property on the basis of getting some millions more for the govonment." Judge Harmon's Statement. CINCINNATI, Oct. 29. Judge Har mon, who was attorney general under the last administration of President Cleveland, has given out a statement concerning the sale of the Union Pacific railway. It is in part as follows: Among the criticisms of the Union Pacific situation it is publicly declared by some that the foreclosure of the government's lien on the main line and of that on the Kansas Pacific line should have been In a single suit and that possible loss by breaking up the unity of the properties might have been avoided by afterward consolidating the veral suits. This statement is wholly unfound ed. As the property is in seven differ ent, states and Judicial districts a sep arate suit had to be brought in each. The disadvantage of this to the gov ernment was plain from the start. Ac cordingly in a bill for a settlement pre pared at the request of congress by Mr. Olney he, Inserted a provision authoriz ing a foreclosure of all the government liens in a single court, if suit should be come necessary. The bill failed and this provision with it. Th sale was t be at public auction, subject to the approval of the court and free and open to any and all bidders without restriction or condition, as shown by the terms of the agreement submitted to congress at the time, July 13, 1897. The suits which were brought in Feb ruary had to remain separate like those brought to foreclose the proper mort gage, making a unit sale of the entire property possible only by concurrent action of the various courts with the concent of all paties. The consolidation of the suits has always been as much out of the question as foreclosure by a single suit was in the beginning. Making Ready For the Sale. OMAHA, Oct. 29. Unless the unex pected shall happen, the Union Pacific railroad will be sold here at auction on Monday. The transaction will involve the largest sum ever disposed of by this mvans in the United States, yet the Whdle matter is not expected to occupy tnbre than ten minutes. Special Master In Chancery W. D. Cornish of St. Paul has been appointed auctioneer. He will Dffer the road after the clerk has read a general description of the property, receive the bids and announce the re sult. This will all be orally. Attorney Winslow S. Pelrce, who will represent the organization syndicate, will make the formal bids for the com mittee. It is believed that he will be op posed by a. representative of the Sage pyndioate, although this is by no means certain. The sale will take place from the north steps of the old courthouse. Miss Kellard Arrested. NEW YORK, Oct. 29. May M. Kel lard has been arrested on a charge of forgery. She is notorious for her con nection with the Barbara Aub case and her relations with old William G. Wood, the Harlem millionaire, who lavished many thousands upon her. The war rant for her arrest was issued almost a year ago, and the police have been looking for her ever since. Cow the Cause ef Death. THREE RIVERS, Que., Oct. 29. A passenger .train on the Laurent lan rail way struck a cow whdeh was on tia track, and the engine left the track and rolled down an embankment. Fire man Edward Pieche was instantly kill ed, and Engineer Gorman and BraJke nia" JPieche Were seriously inlnrd. AIL HEADY FOR THE BOUTS. The Horizon Athletic Club Gives a Good Exhibition. Now that Dan Murphy has' defeated Harry Jamieson, all eyes turn towards his meeting with George Byers at the exhibition of the Waterbury Athletic club, to be given in the auditorium on November 1 1. Never before have the Waterbury people seen two such evenly matched boxers, and the contest will be the hottest ever seen here, as the two men have already fought two draws. As this contest is for twenty rounds there will surely be a decision. Peter Maher will officiate as referea; Dennis O'Reilly as master of cere monies, and Steve Farrell as official time keeper. Word comes from Camp bell and Siddons that they ure already In the pink of condition and eager for the fray. In these two boxers, lovers of the manly art will see two of the world's cleverest boxers and their con test will surely be one well worth wit nessing. The Brook and Farrington go. while from a scientific standpoint will not equal the others, ia sure to be a hot contest as both men have f ,reat lo-al pride and eve.-yone knows what victory to a. local man means. The club will erect an elevated ring in the middle of the hall so that every specta tor can get an unobstructed view ot the principals. The boxmg exhibition given by the Horizon Athletic club, of Bridgeport, was a decided success, notwithstand ing the Murphy-Jamieson fiasco. Popu lar Charley White was the referee, which is always a guarantee that the bouts will be square. Dennis O'Reilly, whose fame as a master of ceremonies has spread throughout the state, filled that position In his inimitable style. The first match on the programme was between Sam Myers of Water bury and Paul Kelly of New York. The boys are almost . a perfect match, and a very lively and interesting bout was the result. The referee gave the decision in favor of Myers, no doubt on account of his style being slightly more aggressive than Kelly's. The audience evidently expected the de cision to be a dfaw, and expressed some disapprobation, but a few re mars from the master of ceremonies caused them to subside. The go be tween Murphy and Jamieson was stopped in less' than a minute, the col ored man being for some reason in about as good condition to tackle Murphy as a good, juicy beefsteak would be. Ik short it was a farce. T'-ie last bout, between Flaherty of Lowell and MaBride of New York, was an excellent exhibition of boxing, the men being equally matched, except that McBride seemed heavier. In the tenth round the referee gave the bout to Flaherty because his second stepped inside the ropes to argu during the round. This is in accordance with the rules. Everybody expressed satisfac tion with the exhibition, even the Jamieson. farce being accepted as such and furnishing much amusement. MONEY IS WHAT TALKS. If Donald McAllister Has Any of It, Let Him Put It Up. Editor of the "Democrat:" Sir: I noticed in yesterday's "Demo crat an item signed Donald Mc Allister, in which the writer challenges any Irishman in town, making special mention of Tim Fitzgerald, to wrestle with him at the fair of St Francis Xavier's parish in City hall. Donald McAllister may be a myth for all I know, but in any case, seeing that my name has been brought before the pub lic in connection with the matter, I de sire to state that I'll wrestle Donald McAllister at Father Curtin's fair for money, but not for fun. If the writer of the communication has $50 or $100 he wants to put up on the best two out of three with me, I'm his man. If he does not want to do this I warn him not to trot me out in the public press any more, else I'll look him up and find out whether he is a man or a mouse TIMOTHY FITZGERALD. WHAT DO Till) CHILDREN DRINK? Don't give them tea or coffee. Have you tried the new food dtrnk called GrainO? It is delicious and nourish ing and tanes the place of coffee. The more Grain-O you give the children the more health you distribute through their systems. Grain-O Is made of pure grains, and when properly pre pared tastes like the choice grades of coffee, but costs about as much. All grocers sell it, 16c and 25c. Garza Ia Dead. NEW YORK, Oct. 29. Recently state ments have been made to the effect that Catarina Garza (or Garcia), the noto rious Mexican bandit. Is now engaged fightinr in the Cuban cause. It was Garza who, it will be remembered, led Captain Bourke such a lively chase, when the latter was stationed in Texas,, across from the Mexican border. Garza, his band dispersed, disappeared from Mexico, and recently statements have appeared that he was leading a section of the Cuban insurgents. It has devel oped that Garza was killed in Boco del Toro, on Chlriqul lagoon, during tha insurrection In February or March, 1885, and was burled there. Can Do Business Ia JCaw Tork fltata.
