WATEKBUKY EVENING DEMOCRAT, MONDAY DECEMBER 13, 189T..
Broadway (Hurrah! Hurrah! Two or tliree landlords (one of them our own rent collector) appeared before our just and iliustrious board of public works to try and convince them that "Broad way" should not take the place of East Main street, but there were hundreds of others that had the interest of busi ness men in view who said we want out street changed to Broadway. If these few who are opposed to changing the name of our street were in the re tail business for a short while, they'd soon change their minds. We also note that one of the speakers suggest ed thai we change the name of the little-park at Elm street to "John Mo rlaty Park." We would sug-gest it be named after the speaker "St Stephen JPark." . TIT- rr n TT-T-TT Tlflnf QTIfl CTinH J W Wit? 11 CM, V. 1 T jwv sized child's tea set with each pound of baking powder.

That's a monstrous fish now on ex hibition in the show window of De laney & Condon on Baldwin street. It ia a five pound pickerel and was caught and landed after a hard struggle, in Chestnut Hill pond, by John Burns of River street. Hundreds have called to see it and some are a little incredulous about the story of its capture, and wink the off eye when the ex-alderman tells that it was caught in Chestnut Hill pond. Thomas H. Hayes and D. T. Hart were among those who viewed the fish and refused to believe that it ever spent an hour in Chestnut Hll pond, or any other body of fresh water in the state, but their position was not very logical, for while refusing to cred it Mr Condon's statement, they made no bones of stating that they frequently landed larger one themselves, in va rious places not far from the city. A couple of smart young fellows came to town recently, having a letter signed by Mr Merrill, a box manufac turer of Springfield, which introduced them to Secretary Day of the Y. M. C. A., and on the strength of a recom mendation from Mr Day, the men se cured board and rooms in respectable places. Now they "are missing, and so is several valuablebelongings to people who lived in the places where the ras cals found 8. home. At Mrs Rufus Smith's on State street they got $9 in money, and later one of them was ac commodatd at the residence of Mrs Townsend, on Grand street, where he made a big haul, taking a scarf pin val ued at $75, a gold watch and chain, with a $2 gold piece attached, two pairs of shoes and two bank books, each con taining deposits amounting to $500, all belonging to a man named Mr St John. Mrs Townsend's guest said his name was Shepard and the other fellow in troduced himself as Reno. Tbey were smooth tcngued chaps and stated that they were to lead the Y. M. C. A. meet ing yesterday. There is no clue to their whereabouts. Alderman Hall says the item pub lished the other evening in the "Dem ocrat" in reference to the politics of the assistant city clerk was misleading, even if it did emanate from a member of the board of aldermen, and a republi can at that. "I want to state the racts in connection with this matter," said Mr Hall, this morning to a "Democrat reporter, "and then you can do what you like about it, though I did think of spying nothing aibout it until to-night, and then ask you to give the board the name of the member who said that clause went into the charter against his wishes. It is true that it was at first decided to say nothing about the' pol itics of the assistant clerk, but later a meeting was held and the matter brought up again and this time all agreed to it and signed a paper to that effect, and I have that paper in my pesession, so that whoever said he knew nothing different to what took place on the matteT at our first meet ing until he learned that it had passed the legislature, must have a treacher ous memory. In addition to this I might add that I never said a word in favor of the measure in Hartford until it received the indorsement of a ma jority of the members of the board of. aldermen." s John Leo will open a cafe in the Moriarty building, East Main street, on Wednesday.

MARRIED OUTSIDE THE CHURCH A Young Woman and Hsr Friends Were Excommunicated. Kansas City, Mo, Dec 13. A special to the Times from St Joseph, Mo, says: Religious circles in this city were stirred up yesterday by the public ex communication of Mrs Charles Miller, formerly Miss Katherine Moriarty, her mother, and all relatives who partici pated in her marriage ceremonies and the reception which followed, because the young woman was married by a Protestant minister. The letter of excommunication from the Right Rev Bishop Burke and ad dressed to Rev Father Newman, pastor of the cathedral congregation, was read at all of the services in the cathe dral. On Thursday of last week Miss Katherine Moriarty was married to Charles A. Miller at the First Presby terian church by the Rev George A Trenholm. After the marriage ser vices a reception was held at the home j of the bride s motner. In his letter of excommunication Bishop Burke spoke of the unusual publicity that had been given to the af fair and for that reason placed, not only Mrs Miller, but all her relatives and all Catholics who participated i her marriage ceremonies, under the ban of the church. XA MESSAGE FROM GOD. San- Francisco, Dec 13. Mrs Alice Hareley, who killed Senator Foley, at Reno several years ago, created a great deal of excitement in Emmanuel Bap tist church last night. At the conclu sion of Rev J. George Gibson's sermon she dramatically declared that she had a message from God to the effect that Durrant's life should be saved and it was the duty of the congregation to save him, Rev Gibson who was Dur rant's pa'stor refused to see the con demned man's mother when she called with a message from her son, asking the preacher to tell all he knew about the murders in Emanuel church. A final appeal for a commutation of the sentence of death will be made tp Gov ernor Budd this week. POPULIST CONVENTION. Portland, Ore, Dec 13.

Germany's State Lotteries. Berlin, Dec. 13. The magnitude of the profits of Germany's five State lot teries makes the anti-gamblers despair of success in their demands for their suppression. The tax on each ticket sold will in 1897 bring more than 16, 250,000 marks. The private lotteries add several millions. Prussia makes 10,000, 000 marks annually out of the lotteries.
