WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. FRIDAY. OCTOBER . 19. 1900.
POLITICAL POINTERS. BOARD OF : REGISTRATION IS . MAKING VOTERS TO-DAY. leeting of Bryan and Stevenson Club Last Evening Judge Co well Presid ed at the Republican Rally at City Hall. The board of registration began ork to-day exactly at the hour ap- lointed, 9 o'clock. But registration up 1:30 o clock was exceptionally ow, there having oeen at mat nine lily about 180 -made," and there fever was more than a aossen waiting nass through. Two failed to pass. it . account of lack of education. It fe exnected that a large number will Agister this afternoon and evening tween 6 and 8 o'clock. The board rill adjourn at 5 o'clock for luncheon, nd resume at 5:30 sharp. AH appii- ants are requested to have the nswers to the questions ready ana guess wore auout tiieui. .neuii- hile the district court is and will be p session ail day and each evening ranting papers. The Bryan and Stevenson club held meeting in the city court room last ight and listened to addresses by sev- ral prominent democrats. The next beeting will take place Sunday even- hg at 7:30 o'clock. I -.ii.I George Fred 'Williams of Boston will tapeak in the auditorium on November 1 m behalf of the democratic national platform,.'' Mr 'Williams is one of the most eloquent speakers in the coun try: "'M"'i one of those whom the metropolitan republican papers love to la&bqst in their columns, and heap ridicule upon. Mr Williams will be accompanied by otht well known speakers. Jpdge Cowell presided at the republi- u rally in City hall last night. J he dge is n n Ideal presiding officer and very affable man. but he lost control is temper while one of the speak- was trying to entertain the audi- e and wanted to know if some able ied republican wouldn't put a fel- in the crowd who persisted in in- errnpting the speaker, out of the hall. George P. McLean, candidate for gov ernor, .was the first speaker. lie talked at some length npon the history of Waterbury, and bad not been at it long when his hearers realized that he wan not well versed in the history of the town. It sounded like a huge joke to hear Mr McLean say that we have better air and better water to-day than the rich could buy fifty years ago. Half a century ago the water rattled down ia abundance from springs that Tiestled on the hillsides and was con sidered the finest in the world. To y we have but a scant supply of ten the quality of which is much in lior to what we had fifty years ago. ffle air of Waterbury was just as iu Igorating in the past as it is to-day, fad if any one doubts this he needs but rok at the, robust men of our own day nd: time who- breathed it when they ivere Doys. Judge Cowell, for exam ile. Mr McLean likened himself to Washington in that his name is George nd that he has been accused of about fill the crimes in the category. Dur- ng Mr McLean s address some one in h audience kept np a continual guv- ng match, which finally angered Judge cwetl so that he requested some one o put him out, but the speaker did ot want this and stated that it inisrht lo the man good to let him remain. seph L. Barbour made lots of fun or the crowd. As evervbodv knows. ' tea capital story teller, and his ef- rts in this line last night prompted any to conclude that "Joe" is im- Oving; in the art of crackins iokes. e declared Mr Bryan to be honest. raightforward and upright, but add- that he considered his ideas falla- us. Mr Barbour made n hit at the ry telling business, but his efforts in ir directions did not bring out any husiasm.

Percival E. Hasweil, who says that he is a Chicago man, and who certain ly looked the part, was announcing in strident tones in the lobby of the Hoff man last evening that he knew the election was as good as over, and that MeKinley was already re-elected. And according to his assertions he was amply able to back up his convictions with large amounts of ready money. Senator P. H. McCarren. who was present, listened patiently and with a sympathetic look on his face, indica tive of pity for the youthful exuberance of spirits in the man from Porkville, when the latter, Becoming over wrought, announced that ho was pre pared to bet from $10,000 to $20,000 on MeKinley at four to one. "I'll take you up on that, sir," said Senator McCarren, stepping forward and producing a blank check. "Just step right over here and we will put up the money." The senator indicat ed the clerk's desk. "Well, hold on," said Mr Haswell. "Where's your money? I did not say a check." That's all right," smilingly respond ed the Brooklyn senntor. "The hotel people will cash the check if you wish. They know me and my checks." But I have not the money with me." was the crestfallen announce ment from the Cliii-ago man. Mean while the crowd was enjoying the sit uation hugely. "Never mind that." said Senator Mc Carren, "I will authorize the stake holder, to accept your check and put it through at once for collection with mine.' so they can keep the cash in the safe." For a moment the Chicago man hes itated, looking anxiously for another loophole to escape from his embar rassing position. Finally, cornered, he said: "I haven't that much money of my own, anyway, and could get it from friends, but if you want to, I'll bet yoii ?1.2.")0 to $."00 and put up my check myself." McCarren and the crowd laughed. "That's something of a come down from 4 to 1 to 24 to 1. and from $20, 000 to $1,250," said McCarren; "but I would hate to disappoint you now, and will bet you the $500 on the election of Bryan." Accordingly the Chicago man gave the Hoffman house cashier his check for $1,250 and the senator gave his check for $500 on the result of the election. Both checks will be at once deposited and the proceeds held in the hotel safe. After the affair Senator McCarren, chewing a cigar, hung about for more offers, but the Chicago man and his kind had disappeared. There were no other bets of any im portance reported on the Stock Ex change or in other sections of the city yesterday. There was a report early in the morning that $50,000 of Tarn manv money would be placed in the hands of Bell & Co to wager on Bryan at one to four, but it was a canard. There was no such money sent down town, for the reason that the Tam many' people have aneady become tired of offering Bryan money for no takers. Bell & Co already have $10.' 000 on hand deposited by Tammany men, with instructions to get it on at one to three and a half and even one to three, but no takers have been found. Bryan money in this city is most plentiful and MeKinley money is about the scarcest commodity in the town, for all the boasted prosperity. How ever, the Tammany people have $50, 000 and yet more besules that they will deposit with Bell "& Co if there is a chance of getting it on. They are waiting for the $10,000 to go first, though. JONES'S STATEMENT. He Shows How Republican Officials Are Working Politics. Chicago, 111, Oct 19. Senator James K. Jones, chairman- of the democratic national committee, yesterday made the following statement: "It has been the rashlon for the re publicans for some years to denounce democrats as anarchists, revolutionists and the like, and the republican party seems to have a monopoly of revolu tionary suggestions just' now. We see a secretary of the treasury, in an ef fort to disturb the bnsiness of the country for political effect, suggesting that Mr Bryan. In case of election, would deliberately evade the law, with a purpose as unstatesmanlike and un patriotic as his own in making this suggestion. Fortunately Mr Bryan has been before the public long enough for everyone to know that tricks and false pretenses are not among his weapons, and suggestions of- this kind excite contempt. "But -worse than this is the fact that other men, who should despise suen.' pretenses, affect to believe that in case Mr Bryan shall be elected, he will pack the supreme court for pur poses of his own. Can it be possible that men themselves actnally contem plate such revolutionary methods in case MeKinley shall be elected? Cer tainly no such revolutionary schemes have been advocated or even suggest ed by any democrat of whom I have ever heard. There is nothing in any democratic platform or in the utterances- of any assemblage of democrats or of any single leading- democrat to suggest such an idea. These sugges tions originate only -with republicans, and seem to snow, when once the par- y has abandoned the principles of the constitution, to what extraordinary lengths Ita extreme, members are like ly to go. This manifestation is of It self astreng- argument for a return to strict Observance of the principles of the constitution, and ef tbe democratic dioctrine of a conservative and honest government I repeat that there - ts nothing in any democratic utterance upon which thia fear of attack upon the supreme court can be founded. The construction put upon the expressions is the democratic platform of 181te, whicb. were, perverted and miscon strued as a basis for such charges, was unwarranted, and untrue. No such purpose has ever entered the mind of any demoerat, out tne leading iaea with, democrats everywhere ta to re turn to the principles of the constitu tion and to faithfully administer the laws as written." . BRYAN IN CONNECTICUT. He Will Speak in Kew ! Haven Satur day, October 27. ' New Haven, Oct 19. Coloriei E. M. Graves, president of the association of democratic clubs of Connecticut, to gether with Homer S. Cummings, dem ocratic national committeeman; Charles F. Thayer, chairman of the democratic state central committee; and Joseph Johnson, representing Wil liam R- Hearst, president of the Na tional Association of Democratic Clubs, bad a conference yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock in the headquarters of the state central committee in this city, to make arrangements for a train to go from Hartford to New York on Sat urday, October 27. The train will leave Hartford in time to arrive here in sea son for an address on the New Haven srreen by the Hon- William J. Bryan, from 12 o'clock to 1:20 o'clock. After the speech the democrats from Hart ford, together with those from New Haven and other cities of Connecticut, will escort Mr Bryan to New York in special trains. Mr Johnson Is chairman of the com mittee which is co-operating with the state committee to complete -arrangements to run an excursion train .from Hartford to New York and return, getting the democratic tpwn com mittees in the towns to work up the matter in their respective towns and giving the probable number that will go. I Mr Johnson is especially desirous to have a large representation from the Yale Democratic club. Seats will be reserved at the Madison Square Gar den, to be known as the Connecticut division, and to be placed at the dis posal of the democrats of Connect Ic"i . A similar arrangement will be made in New Jersey, and excursion trains will be run from New Jersey to New York. The" clubs from New York, New Jersey and Conectlcut are ex pected to take a prominent part. The Hon William J. Bryan is to make the principal address. The schedule as now arranged is that Mr Bryan, under the escort of Homer S. pCummings, member of the national committee; Charles F. Thayer, chair man of the state central committee, and a committee to be appointed by them, will leave New York with Mi Bryan on the 10 a. m. train Saturday. October 27, getting to New Haven shortly before noon, Mr Bryan will deliver his address and take the 1:35 p. m. train for New York, arriving there shortly after 3 o'clock. i Colonel Graves, on arriving here, en deavored to have the program changed so as to have Mr Bryan go to Hartford, leaving" New York at about 8 o'clock and getting back on the same train as he would if he left at 10 o'clock and came only to New naven, but it was decided not to change the official pro gram. Mr Hearst is leaving no stone un turned and is desirous of making the demonstration of democratic clubs in New York on Saturday, October 27, eoual. if not surpass, the demon stration of Tammany hall on October to. The great desire on the part, of the democrats all over tiie state is to listen to Mr Brvnn and it is n ereat rtnv nointment that lie could not spend at 1oit one rtnv in this stnte. Colonel f!rnvs said thn b did not exnect to be nli to have Mr Bryan go through to Hartford. " COLORED TRAINING SCHOOL. Chicago, Oct 10.
