Waterbury, December 17, 1897. To the Editor of the "Democrat:" Sir: Credit is due to a reporter ot your paper for bringing so often before the public the necessity of more school accommodation in the Brooklyn dis trict, showing very conclusively from time to time that the Bank street school is entirely too small to meet the needs of the pupils of school age. He fays in yesterday evening's Brooklyn Briefs: "No one seems to be willing to go on record with: a suggestion as to the most logical solution of the ques tion." In order to set the ball rolling-, I suggest that a new school house is built f ronting Porter street, in the rear of the Bank street school, on a vacant lo' there which connects With the play ground of the present school building. I have two reasons for this "suggestion. One is the Bank street' school seems centrally located, but too small, and the other reason is the play ground could "be used in common for both schools by only removing a fence, and thus save the expense of buying a larger lot. If- sitting room is persisted in for all the pupils at the same time, we will need more room in the near future, in fact the children are over crowded at the present time. Respectfully, ' ' B. C. REILLY. Grigsgs Awaits McKema'i Fate. Washington, Dec. 17. The report that Vice-President Hobart, Senator Sewell. Gov. Griggs and State Senator Voor hees held a conference here yesterday to decide whether Gov. Grigrgs or his probable successor, Senator Voorhees, should make the State appointments, is denied. A promine'ht Jerseyman said there would not be a conference, and none was necessary. Gov. Griggs' name, he said, would not be sent until Mr. McKenna was confirmed by the Senate as Supreme Court Justice, and Gov. Griggs would make all appointments up to the time he resigned.

Surveyor William ' McNamara is taking measurements of the property of the estate of Dennis Mitchell, and people in this section are curious to know who will purchase it. Some of the buildings are not in good repair, but a little money would put the whole of them in shape so that they would bring in fair renta. The supper and entertainment at the Third church last night,, under the auspices of the Women's Aid society, was largely attended and the pro gramme of exercises was rendered in a most praisworthy manner.- A largo number of fancy articles were on exhi bition, many of which were purchased at reasonable prices. "Mrs Jarley's Wax Works," as exhibited by Ivy Tem ple Rathbone Sisters, were highly ap preciated by the audience. There came near being a fight on Bank street this morning when a man approached three prominent citizens, one of them a member of the board of aldermen and said: "It is seldom one sees three such distinguished men standing together in this part of the town, still if I was put on my oath I wouldn't be able to tell which of you is the biggest rogue." The party turn ed to inquire the cause of the man's re marks, but he quickly disappeared, thus saving himself a good walloping. Thomas Wilton, aged 70 years, died last night at his home on Riverside park. The deceased had been a resi dent of Waterbury for over forty-five years and had worked in Benedict. & Burnham's. rolling mill until about ten years ago, when he retired. In those days Mr Wilton lived on Mill street, where he was regarded ' as quite an agreeable old gentleman. His widow, two sons and one daughter survive him. The funeral will take place from the house at 2:30 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. Services will be conducted at Hall Memorial chapel at 3 o'clock. The interment will be in Riverside cemetery. In the discussion on the petition to change the name of East Main street to that of Broadway, at the meeting of the board of public works yesterday af ternoon, the opponents of the measure stated that there was no use having a Broadway unless the city had some place it could designate as the "Bowery," "Five Points," and a few other such names that go to make up a city with a Broadway." One of the members thought Jackson street would do for a Bowery, but no one was able to say where we could find a Five Points. Jackson street is all right and the residents of that place would not exchange the name for that of Broad way, v Accuse Weyler of Stealing-. Havana, Dec. 17. The Diario de la Marina publishes a letter accusing Gen. Weyler of having embezzled $16, 000 from a fund viMoh was started In this city for tho relief of the families of a' number of soldiers who perished as the result of- a railway accident at the Guines station in March, 1896. The money was held in deposit at the Bank of Commerce In this city until Oct. 30, when Gen. Weyler withdrew it. . .......

Dec IS Richard Mansfield. 1 JACQUES OPERA HOUSE. i Sawtelle Dramatic Co. The Sawtelle Dramatic company presented last evening "Around tha World in SO Days," adapted for Mr W. ' J. Fleming from Jules Verne's cele brated bock. The play was pr -nuced in highly creditable manner, with every, attention to detail and cast, vri-th, the full strength of 'he company. Special, scenery was used, which is nearly all carried by the company; Mr J. Sawtelle appeared as "Phinea Fogg," and gave a cheerful, studied, conception of the .character, never once forgetting the responsibilities c the part. Mr Mortimer, as Mr. Achi bald, the Amei'Ican,. was good and gxve satisfaction. (Mr Fisher as "Fasca Pairtoue" supplied the comedy and add ed many to his list of admire, s. Miss Laura Hurlburt made a rood Aouda, and the supporting company was ex cellent. Vhis evening, Bartley Camp bell's great drama, "True as Steel,? will be the play and to-morrow after noon at the matirse, "The Captain's. 'Mate." IA sacred concyt will be given by the company Sunday evening, th programme to be announced later. The price will be 10 and 20 cents to all parts of the house. The company will also occupy the theater Monday, Tues day a.nd Wednesday of next week, commencing Monday afternoon with. Wiaine and Georgia" J"or their mati nee performance production, by spec ial request. , New specialties will be introduced and Prof Sherman's trained goats, and Ermani wfl'l appear at every performance. POLI'S THEATER. . ' Richard Mansfield. Another big theatrical event for Wa terbury will be the appearance cjf Richard 'Mansfield at 'Poli's to-morrow afternoon and evening.' The fame of , 'Mr Mansfield as probably the leading x American actor is well ' known here, and the characteristic enterprise of Mr Poll in bringing him to Waterbury ia certain to be appreciated. Mr Mans field will play two of his masterpieces in "Beau Brummel," which he presents at the ma tinee, and "Dr Jekyll and Mr ' Hyde" in .'he evening. 'Water bury ia--' the only city where he is to appear during Ms present tour, and for thia additional reason our people should feel an exceptional interest in the en- v gagement. From the way the tickets nave been eslling, bth for the matinee and eveni'Ag performances, Mr ,Mans- field is already assured of large and : thoroughly representative audiences. Dorothy Morton. Miss Dorothy Morton, who comes to Poll's next Monday evening, will pre sent the musical comedy in wh'.'Ch 3ho his been ncakir-s such an eminent suc cess since she first began to star. The comedy bears the curious title "Miss lL-evlty of Kong Kong," and it was es pecially built to acoemmodate Mis8 'Morton's gifts as a prima donna come dienne. Those who keep in touch with theatrical history will recall Miss . Morton as the principal support ot Frank Daniels In "The Wizard of the Nile" and later 83 leading lady for Au gustin Daly in "The Geisha." She has ' exceptional merit as a singer and since blossoming out as a star, she has de veloped powers of comedy that were unsuspected even by those who watch ed her progress wth Daniels and Daly. The Waterbury public will undoubted ly greet Miss Morton with marked ap preciation when she makes her appear- ance at Poli's on Monday. . "Wolvesof New York." - . The fourth big attraction at Poli'a 'will be "The Wolves of New York," which will be presented there next Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with a matinee on Wednesday. "Gayest Manhattan." The great success of last season at Koster & Bial's New York music halU . "Gayest Manhattan," is announced to take place at Poli's theatre Christmaa afternoon and evening.lt is claimed to be an extravaganza, a burlesque and comic opera, making its claim good in ' all. Simply told, the story merely pre sents the mishaps of Miss Rickets, a young lady from the wilds of Maine. She is accompanied by her father. The former comes to New York to study for the stage, the latter to buy her plays and fame. The one develops into a roof garden favorite, and the other into ' one of the gayest roysterers in town. It is not very elaborate, but in the course of the action pretty songs ma terialize; dances, many of them, and -all good,- bright sayings, special acts, beautiful scenery, lots of handsome girls, attractive costumes and a cast of players that includes among the prin cipals Richard Gorman, Gertie Rey- ;" 1 , .
