Some tim-e ago a discussion arose among a few prominent Brooklyn resi dents regarding the correct way to spell the names of several well known families in this .section. In order to settle the dispute it was decided to re fer the matter to the Pilot and the question is answered in the current is sue of that paper. Here it is, question and all: "C. D., Waterbury, Conn: Kindly give me the origin of the name Dunphy; also which is the proper way to spell it, Dunphy or Dumphy?" "This name is correctly spelled Dun phy. It appears to be simply one of the variations of the original form O'Donchada or O'Donchu, rendered into English as O'Donocho, and by various changes modernized O'Dono ghoe, iDonaghy and Dunphy."

Polo Players Anxiously Waiting and Every Prospect of a Big Crowd. To-night will witness one of the fiercest battles probably ever seen on the rollers. The Meridens will come over prepared to play for all they are worth, and although they will prob ably not be easily defeated, the chances are that we will -Just add another point to our "won" column. There were no games in the Southern New England league last night. To night all the teams play. Meriden will be here; Hartford in New- Haven, and Wallingford will play in New Bri tain. Now, you fellows in "Carson City" get your . good voice on and root to night as you never before rooted. Re member, however, you can encourage the home team along without "roast ing" the visitors. We'll win all right if you will just "be nice" and root gentlemanly. Those green-suited fel lows are very sensitive you know. If you hear an over-voiced cow bell tolling- the doom of the Meriden team. you will know that it Is simply Hack-1 man "Billy" MoCarthy giving vent to a cargo of enthusiasm. "Jim" Kgan may also possibly have a fish horn "up his sleeve." But don't; get ner vous because the Meriden's do. Former goal, Hammond, has been appointed condition, keeper of the home team. He will look after the physical condition of the boys in a thoroughly athletic manner. Ham mond has had considerable experience in this line, having assisted at several trainings and had some little experi ence in massage treatment. You're all right, Hammond. Sergeants John Fagan and Bernard Cahey are confirmed rooters at the games. Eddie Beach is also on deck every time. v Jean Jacques saya that when the game gets "red hot" he can't stand the pressure. So b goes out in the hall 'till the game cools down a little. All the players attended the boxing exhibition at the auditorium! last night. They appeared to be pleased with the various bouts. The press booth is now on Ihe east side, near the entrance. The accom modations for the scribes are now all right. The only request we now have to make is that "Eddie" Beach take the opposite box to the one he regularly occupjies, as we want to ee and hear his vigorous rooting, which is very in spiring. , ' We wish all the ladies would procure and wear the home boys' colors at the games. The colors are yellow and black, girls. Isn't there a rhyme that says: "Yaller, Yaller, catch a fellar?" "Old Ironsides" will be on deck this evening as large as life. The rooters in "Carson City" will please note this. 'All the boys are feeling fine, and the probabilities of a defeat for the green suited Silver city team are very prom ising. The ladies would be greatly accom modated if the management would set off a small section and reserve it for them. They would then escape any chance of getting near a smoker. The league of. shop teams will be or ganized to-nighx. All interested are requested to be at th auditorium be fore the regular game. Sale 'tTTtt''''VT"T'''t''VT vyi MR ABBOTTS' PARTING WORDS,, Thinks Property and Health Would Be Benefitted By Proper Sewerage. Editor of the "Democrat-" Our worthy "City Official" thinks I tortured his remarks into an inference that he desires the indefinite postpone- , ment of the collection of taxes and as sessments, and so he tortures mine into an inference that I am "not actine thn part of an honest man." I will not say an unkind word in reply, but simply re peat his own statement that "in all I suppose there must be between $60,000 and $70,000 due the city on street pav ing ana sewers, all of which will not be collected in years, and there is a ' question whether we will ever get the whole of it." Now, that shows a kind of municipal paternalism, does it not? And the same idea carried to its logical conclusion would compel the city to be equally lenient in 1 the collection of taxes. This was the inference I in tended, and not that I thought the "City Official" desired it. . I think per haps, we might both of us desire it if, it were only practicable, but we can both see that, carried to a logical con clusion, such a course would block tha " wheels of our city government. So. only again referring to what I said about the benefit sanitary sewerag would be to the poor man's property, as well as to the health of his family, I retire from this public- discussion.

Sawtelle Dramatic Company. The old reliable, the popular Saw telle company, will open a week's en gagement at the Jacques opera house on Monday evening, December 13, with daily matinees, beginning oa Tuesday afternoon. On Monday even ing, the grand realistic war drama, en titled "Maine and Georgia," will be ; presented. The company consists of twenty-five people and an orchestra of -ten pieces. The dramas are all new and the specialties are superior to any thing ever seen with a popular priced attraction. Mr Sawtelle carries a car load of special scenery for this i pro-.., duction. Prices 10, 20 and 30 cents. "A Jay in New York." William Jerome's Herald Square comedians made a big hit last night' before a crowded house at ' Jacques' theatre. All that is wrong with the company Is the title, "A Jay in New York," given to the production. That name should be changed as it leads many to believe that the performance will be a poor one. Those who were present last night were loud in their praise of the entire programme Each comedian or comedienne was a star in his or her line. As these clever per formers are to be here for the rest of the week, with matinees to-day and to morrow, crowded houses should greet them. The talent gathered together ia of the very best quality. . Master Rob ert North, the singing newsboy; Maud Nugent, Nick Conway, William Jer ome, Edward and Lillian Blondell and W. C. Davis made decided hits in their respective numbers. Then followed that wonderful machine of moving pic tures. It was one of the best of the kind seen in Waterbury. The com pany deserve liberal patronage for the rest of the week. There will be an en tire change of bill this evening, when "McFay's Reception" will be produced. POLI'S THBATEiR. - - "Half a King." - Tliere was another fairly lively day to-day at the Waterbury Drug com pany's East Main street store, where the management of Poll's theater have put the tickets on sale for the opening night. Nearly all the seats have now been taken both on the ground floor and in the balcony, but there are a few good ones left which will probably be taken up before the week is out. Everything now points to a brilliant success on the opening night and to the presence of the most splendid the atrical audience ever seen in the city of Waterbury. A number of theatrical parties have been formed and many gentlemen and ladies have announced their intention to appear in full dress , in honor of the occasion. Francis . Wilson, the star who will have the honor of opening the house, stands among the most popular artists on the American stage. He is easily the king , of our conic opera stars, and "'Half a King," the opera which he will pre sent, is one of the most gorgeously mounted and tuneful operas on the boards. Mr Wilson will probably make a speech on the opening night, as he is a very ready' and witty talker, and it has been his custom to so chris ten new theaters whenever he has been the star on opening nights. Richard Mansfield. Richard Mansfield, who follows close upon the heels of Francis Wilson, at Poll's, is easily the most versatile ac tor in America, and unquestionably the most finished in the peculiar line he effects. During his engagement at Poli's on Saturday, December 18, Mr Mansfield will present "Beau Drum mer' at the matinee, and "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" at the evening perform ance. It is a notable fact that Water bury is the only place in Connecticut where Mr Mansfield is to appear, he coming here direct from Troy, N. Y., and going hence to Brooklyn for a week's engagement. Mr Mansfield never stays at' hotels, traveling snd living always in his ovn private car, which will lay on a sidin.t near the. New England depot during his stay in -Waterbury. . .. v ,.1 -
