WATERJBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY", DECEMBER 1.7, 1897.
MB BABL0WWE1T OUT. THE BOARD ELECTED MR REILEl' STREET SUPERINTENDENT. Elected For a Term of Three Years at , a Salary of $1,500 Per Year Repub licans Disappointed as They Had a Man in View For the Position. The board of public works held a meeting yesterday afternoon, there be ing present Mayor Kilduff, Commis sioners Clohessy, Halpin, Houghton, Barlow, Chatfield and City Clerk Grady. The half monthly payrolls of the street, Bewer, water and engineering depart ments were read and payment of the same recommended. Salaries of the members of the board were presented as follows: Thomas D. Barlow, 23 months at $150 per year, $293.75; George Chatfield, 23 months, $293.75; John Clohessy, .23 months, $293.75; estate of Moritz Grelle, 21 mouths, $265.50; P. W. Halpin; five months, $62.50; W, E. Houghton, 2 months, $31.25. "Gentlemen," said the mayor, "what 'Is your pleasure to do with these bills? Don't be bashful about ordering them paid. If you do not care to accept it you can return it to the city." On motion the trills were approved, Mr Chatfield remarking that it was well earned money. ' .' The street inspector was instructed to- locate a site for an electric light pole at or near No 144 Railroad Hill street, so that the Traction company can put up the light at the earliest convenience. The petitions asking for an electric light on Field street and on River etreet near Granite street, were placed on the list for further investigation. M. Pallati and W. Benton, who had petitioned for permission" 'to maintain bootblack stands, the former in front of No 29 East Main street and the lat ter opposite 53 West Main street, were given leave to withdraw, the commit tee on obstructions having reported that the abutting property owners did not wish such a business conducted in . front) of their property. On motion of Mr Barlow the peti tioners asking that the name of East Main street be changed to that of . Broadway, were given leave to with- ' draw. Mr Halpin thought that inas much as so many of the residents and property owners desired the change that it would be but fair to act on the matter favorably, with the addition that the whole thoroughfare from Sil ver street to the "Watertown road be called Broadway, but some of the other members could not see the benefit of the change. . A committee consistfrg of Commis sioners Houghton, Chatf.eld and Clo hessy were appointed to confer with the board of selectmen requiring joint ap propriations for City hall expenses for 1898. . ..ArWll of James, Slavjn and James E. I Byrnes for damages on account of their CTllars being flooded some time since, the former amounting to $75 and the latter to $S0, were ordered pid. Mr Slavin asked $93 and Mr Brynts ,$113, but Mr Chatfield said that Mr Halpin and himself had gone over the items carefully and that the sums recom mended were about right. Sewer assessments were laid on iCel logg, Hickory, Waterville, Center, Wcl cott, Charles and Farm streets, Hospital avenue, in accordance with the computations of the city engineer. An exemption of 80 feet was made on the property of Mrs Morse on Kellogg street, 100 feet each on Terrence Cough lan's and Michael Donovan's of Hick ory street. In the case of Wolcott Etreet it was voted to exempt the prop erty of the Sacred Heart church, from Taylor street to a point midway be- 'tween the church building and the rec tory. When the board got to St Pat rick',e church property on Charles street Commissioner; Clohessy said the church and rectory were connected with the Bank .street sewer and that he did not think it fair to tax the property on both Bides, especially when no building could ever be erected on the vacant land. The property was assessed, ex cept that portion of it on which the church stands. William Milton of Farm street was exempted 75 feet, and Sarah L. Huff, also of Farm street, was exempted C2 feet. Charles A. Colley was exempted 75 and 100 feet on two pieces of property on Hospital avenue. The Milford Land and Cottage com pany was exempted 75 feet on the north and south corners of west end of Center street, and E. A. Lathrop and Mrs Warner were- each exempted 70 ' feet at the east end of the same street. On motion of Commissioner Halpin it was voted that the petition for a 22 foot street through the Brcnson li brary park be referred to the aldermen with the recommendation that public necessity and convenience require that a street be built there. The motion was passed by a vote of 4 to 1, Mr Bar low opposing it. The board indulged in a long chat on the petition of Wadhams post, G. A. R., for permission to erect a fence around the soldiers' monument, but no definite action was taken on the matter. The meeting wa3 about to adjourn "when Commissioner Halpin moved to proceed to ballot for a superintendent of streets, to hold office for three years. This brought out a little discussion as to how long the board could elect him for. Mr Barlow said he did not deny the right of the beard to elect a super intendent of streets, but that he could not find any warrant in the charter, giving the board power to elect him for any given time. Mr Halpin con tended that this was optional with the board. It could make the term of office less than that if it saw fit. Mr Barlow: "I grant that the board has the power to elect a superintendent, but I don't see where you get the au thority to elect him fcr any specific time. Ycu might as well say we could elect him for one hundred years." , Mr Halpin: "Board3 are supposed to exercise a little common sense in such matters, and terms of office rarely extend over a period of three years ex cept in cases of legislative enactments where the incumbents are fixed there fluring good behavior, or in other words far life, as is the case with seme of our charter provisions. .It is simply a difference of opinion between Mr Bar low and myself. I believe the board has a right to appoint a superintendent of streets for the same length of time as prescribed in the old ordinance re lating to the street inspector." Mr Barlow: (Looking Mr Halpin in the face) Would you object to referring this matter to the city attorney for an opinion as to our rights in the mat ter?" Mr Halpin: "Of course I object to such a course. If you refer it to the city attorney. God knows when we would hear from him on it. Not this year, anyway." Mr Chatfield: "It would be well to get an opinion on the matter from the city attorney. I second Mr Barlow's proposition." A motion to that effect was put and lost. The chair then stated Mr Hal pin's motion and being put it was carried. Commissioners Clohessy and Chatfield were appointed tellers and the board proceeded to ballot for a superintendent of streets. At this juncture Mr Barlow, who seemed to be getting mad'der all the time, jumped from his seat and left the room. The result of the ballot showed three votes j for E. B. Reilev and one blank. The mayor declared Mr Reiley elected su perintendent of streets for the term of three years from and after the date of his election. - Mr Halpin then moved that the sal ary of the superintendent of streets bo fixed at $1,500 a. year. This passed unanimously. Mr Chatfield said he thought $1,500 was just and right for the office. "It is an important posi tion," he said, "and when properly attended to as it now is, it requires all a man's time and the use of a horse, too." The mayor said he believed the superintendent of streets should have a horse and that the salary should be not less than $1,50. The meeting adjourned until next Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock. THE CLOSING MEETING. Members of the Present Board of Edu cation Meet For the Last Time. The last meeting of the board of edu cation was held in the high school last evening. There were present Chair man Treanor, Messrs Freney, McDon ald, Hayes, Shipley and Sperry. Su perintendent Tinker acted as clerk in the absense of Clerk Moran. The first action taken was the favor able recommendation to the incoming board of the new rules constructed by Superintendent Tinker. The matter of increasing the salaries of teachers who had been debarred from deserving increases under the old law, which has since been rescind ed, was brought up by Chairman Trea nor. He stated that the old law was that if teachers wished to get an in crease over the $500 limit, they must pass a certain examination. The re sult had not been what was evidently hoped for, however, as the teachers simply brushed up on the subjects which they were to take examinations under, and if they passed successfully well and good. After passing, how ever, they went back into the same line as before the examinations, no further obligations being put upon them than to pass the examinations. On motion of Mr McDonald, it was voted to-promote the following teach ers from grade C to grade B: Marie Corr, Margaret Dunn, Mary Lahey, Annie Coyle, Marie Corcoran, Margaret Cowan, Mary" O'Connor, Mary Char ters, Nora McElligott, Annette Ellis, Lucy Burns, Josephine Flanagan, Win ifred Wood, Minnie Keenan. On motion of Mr Sperry it was voted to increase the salaries of the follow ing teachers to $525 per year: Marie Corr, Margaret Dunn, Mary Lahey, An nie Coyle, Margaret Cowan, Mary O'Connor, Mary Charters, Lucy Burns, Josephine Flanagan and Minnie Kee nan. . On motion of Mr Shipley, a vote of thanks was extended .to Chairman Treanor for the courteous and fair minded manner in which he handled the board for the two years of his chairmanship. Chairman Treanor responded with a few brief and appropriate remarks, as follows: "I certainly feel grateful to the members of tits board for the kind ness they have shown me. I can never forget the happiness I ex perience to know that you feel so kind ly disposed toward me. I thank you for the kindness and good will shown to me at all times, especially at the present moment.'' Superintendent Tinker then briefly spoke to the members of the board, thanking them for the kindness they had always shown him, which he said, had made his labors a. great deal lighter. 'I regret that we are about to separate," he concluded, "for no friends are like old friends." On motion of Dr Freney, the board then adjourned, and the present beard of education had held its last meeting. A-fter the meeting there was a general shaking of hands and the members separated.

I desire to express my great gratifi cation on learning of the coming Shaespearean reading by Mr Hannibal A. Williams, of New York. I know Mr Williams well and have occasion to respect him and his excellent artis tic work. His well-earned reputation so widely extended needs no added en dorsement from me,- but I can assure all those who attend the entertainment that they will be edified and highly pleased at the presentation of the "Midsummer Night's Dream." The entertainment is to be further enrich ed by the added charm of music from some of our most popular musicians. I sincerely regret that I cannot enjoy the entertainment myself, professional occupation out of the city depriving me of that pleasure. (Signed,) FRANCIS T. RUSSELL. Recital by (Mr Hannibal A. Williams of Shakespeare's comedy, "A Midsum mer Night's Dream," accompanied by 'Mendelssohn's music to the play, ren dered by Mrs Wagner-Tracy, soprano; Mrs Roswell H. Buck,; Mrs William Ellsworth Kimball, pianist, at Friend ly league hall, next Tuesday evening. CLAIRE REFUSED TO GO ON, And the Bout Between Him and Fla herty Was Off. You can work a race horse to death, or you can overdo a good thing until it causes its own collapse. That was evidently the case about the athletic contest last night, at City hail, under the auspices of the Monitor Athletic club. Waterbury is a great spirting City, but there is a limit to everything. The athletic carnivals have followed each other in such rapid -succession that it was only a question of time when some club would run up against a snag. Only about 500 people as sembled last night to see the boxing bouts. Every arrangement had been mad for a good night's sport, but somehow the atmosphere was tinged with something which betokened fake, fizzle or failure, whichever you may feel inclined to call it. There did not seem to be that confidence in the suc cess of last night's events that charac terized other exhibitions. As a conse quence the crowds did not materialize. Although it was long after 9 o'clock before "Barney" Burke, the master of ceremonies, came before the audience, those present were comparatively very patient. He announced in a concise manner the various bouts and then in troduced James Boutelle, of Provi dence, as referee. There was another long wait, but finally Austin Rice, of New London, and Jimmy Barnett, of New York, followed by their trainers, took their corners in the ring, which was pitched in the center of the floor. Prior to their entrance, Harry Pep pers, the colored San Francisco fighter, who wanted to say something, crawled through the ropes. He wanted another fight with George Byers and he said he would probably get it. The audience paid but little attention to him or his rambling talk., In the first and second rounds of the Rree-Barnett go. Rice followed his old tactics of punching red spots all over Barnett's ribs and wind, until Bar nett's body was as red as a lobster. In the third there were some hct ex changes in which Barnett drew first blood. In the fourth Rice tried for the head and reached. it several times. Another 'upper cut by Barnett brought the blood again. In the fifth Rice fairly beat his man down with lefts and rights on the neck and head. The crowd shouted to stop it. This was done but Barnett's trainers insisted on going on. Again Rice ' pounded his man and then Sergeant Blakeley raised his club to end it. Barnett,. although defeated, was given a hearty applause for his plucky fight as he left the ring. The next go was an amusing one and everybody thoroughly enjoyed it. Some where in the wilds of Derby, there lives a man named Michael Mahoney. They say he is a. blacksmith, and that he had strong inclinations to follow in the footsteps of that other blacksmith, Bob Fitzsimmons. Someone told Ma honey he could fight. Now, I don't be lieve it was James Whitcomb Riley, who did this cruel thing, but at any rate, a fighter he' must be. So in flated had his head become, that he wanted to go in Bridgeport in place, of Harry Jamison, against Murphy. Harry Lane, who threw up the sponge here with Murphy, got Mahoney's ear, and he told him how easy a mark Murphy was, at any rate Mahoney took his corner last night and he apparently was confident. He had a football head of hair, which he carefully parted in the middle. He looked like a big, strong fellow and was a good looking chap at that. He eyed Murphy closely and watched to see that" a brick or a horse shoe was not put in his gloves. Harry Lane was behind him and urged him to do some rushing. Well, time was called and immediately Mahoney did rush. He sent in a punch on Mur phy's wind and everybody smiled. Ma honey flushed with confidence, turned his arms, legs and body into every kind of an angle and sailed in to kill his man. He received a thump from Murphy's left that twisted one part of his head out of joint. Before the round was over he received two or three teeth looseners and he wished he was home in bed. In the second round Murphy let loose and poor Mahoney re ceived so many jaw smashers that he got very weary and moving away from Murphy sat down in the middle of, the stage, and refused to get up until the referee told him that Murphy had quit. This ended the fisitc aspirations of that blacksmith of Derby. The final go of the evening between Martin Flaherty of Lowell and jjimmy Claire of Brooklyn, did not materialize. The people were told that Claire re fused to fight unless the purse was di vided. He would take $100 and take his medicine, but Manager Mort Goss refused to concede over $50, the loser's end. This was what the articles of agreement called for, and Claire thought he could bluff Goss into pay ing him half the purse, win or lose. Flaherty was in the ring ready for work. The crowd hissed and hoot ed and cries of fake were heard all over the hall. The managers said they would give out coupons for another contest in three weeks. This they did and perhaps they will keep their words, at any rate boxing has received costly black eye in Waterbury. POLO GAME TO-NIGHT. WallingCord Will Try to Win a Game From Waterbury. To-night the Wallingford team will play at the auditorium and we 'hope to secure another game to be placed to our credit in the league standing. The standing of the teams in the polo league is unchanged from that given in last night's "Democrat." All of the teams took a rest last night. The Hartfords go to New Britain to night and the Meriden's will play at New Haven. This latter will undoubt edly be a hot game, and if there are not seme scraps at" it, we miss a guess. Bottomley, the New Britain rush, spent yesterday in town as the guest of Mr Conley. Bottomley is a good natured fellow and readily makes friends. Besides being a first-class polo player on the rollers, Bottomley is a water po'loist as will be seen from the following clipping from : an ex change: Bottomley, one of the rushers on the New Britain team Is an all round athlete. 'He is a cracker-jack at water polo, a game thatis played very generally in Providence. This game is undoubtedly the roughest and -.most dangerous of all sports. It is played in a tank about 90 feet long, 12 feet wide and nine feet deep. The ball used is of rubber and about the size of a rugby football. 'Much of the game is played under water, the rushes being made by diving. Bottomley is an expert swimmer and diver and al ways plays first rush in this gamje. To-morrow night the Waterbury team will go to Wallingford. Next week will be a busy week for the home team. Monday we play in New Bri tain; Tuesday we go to Hartford; Wednesday the Hartfords will play here; Thursday the New Britain's will pliay here. Saturday (Christmas) the Hartfords 'play here in the afternoon and the New Havens will play here at night. There is a lot of hard work ahead of the team, as can be seen from this, tand the boys will have to take good care of themselves 'in preparation of their hard task. If we win to-night and to-morrow night, which is very probable, our record for this week will be three won and one lost. We guess we can make the above record stand good all right. If so, nobody can have a kick coming in all fairness. At a meeting of the Southern New England polo league to be held at Mer iden to-morrow, the schedule for the season will be completed. The press will be glad when the schedules are printed, as at present they are at sea as to- where and when the teams will play. . . A "school teachers" party is being formed to attend a polo game in the near future. COURT HARMONY WON. In the case of Court Harmony against Court Lincoln, a verdict was rendered for the plaintiff this afternoon, award ing damages in the sum of $320.40. The case cf Austin B. Pierpont against Ellen Cuddy is now on trial. HANGED AT THE PRISON. Nicodemo Impusino Paid the Daath , Penalty Last Night. Nicodemo Impusino was banged at the state prison at 12:23 o'clock this morning for complicity in the murder of the wife of Guiseppe Fuda. Impu sino g!ave no signs cf breaking down and appeared to be much more com posed when he entered the execution room than Fuda did. The execution was successful in every way. The man's neck was broken and he was pronounced dead in twelve minutes from the time his body shot up into the air. Aside from his religious faith, there were two things that did considerable toward easing Impusino's mind tow ards the end. Until yesterday he had believed that his execution was to be public and all who would pay an ad mission would be entitled to see him hang. He was greatly pleased when he was told the truth. Another thin? that worried Impusino was the fear cf not being buried by friends. No one had claimed his body and according to the law it would be sent to the Yale Medical school. The Rev Edward Flannery claimed the body and it will be buried this morning in St Patrick's cemtery. Impusino entered the execution room repeating prayers in Italian aifter the. priests. His face was 'extended upward and he did not seem to be very nervous. He was placed upon 1h plateat 12.23 o'clock and Deputy Bais den put on the black cap and adjusted the rope, which was the same one used upon Fuda, as both were, committed for the same crime. Impusino stood upon the plate for twenty-three sec onds and then he shot up into the air for seven feet and dropped to within two feet of the floor. The pulsations taken by Drs Fox and Banks were 90, 58, 40, 50, 60 and 72. Impusino's muscular contractions were greater than Fuda's and his legs were drawn several times. At 12:35 o'clock life was pronounced extinct and the body was lowered at 12:43 o'clock. The body was immedia tely placed in a coffin and portions of the funeral ssr vice were read by the two priests. It was then taken away by Kenney & Dillon. Warden Woodbridge congrat ulated the Rev Edward Flannery and the Rev John T. Lynch for their efforts in preparing the condemned man so well for his doom. The priests said ho bore up remarkably well. In fact, there was a smile on his face when he entered the death chamber. The following facts concerning the prisoner were obtained from him by the Rev Edward Flannery: His name is Nicodemo Impusino, son of Joseph Impusino and Anna.
