Jewett City, July 18. Control of the
William A. Slater Mills, Inc., has pass
er into the hands of the Fiske Tire com
pany. The tire concern now has pos
session of a controlling interest in
these big mills, such interest being
held in favor of one of the subsidiary
concerns of that company.
One of the most decisive changes In
the history of this town is noted in the
passing to other control of the Slater
At present there is no indication that
there will be any change in the opera
tion of the plant. " The Slater mills
have for several years bean putting on
the market the highest Trade of cotton
warp for use in the manufacture of
automobile tires. Among oiher mills
which have received this product is
that at jGoodyear, this state.
The belief by many that a
big weave shed was to be built is not at
present substantiated. The:;e .-.1 lis
hwa been closely linked 7ith Ciis
wold's history since 1S23. In the year
1810 Che Jewett City Manufacturing
Co. built a small mill un this privi
lege and spun cotton yarn from which
olh was woven on hanl looms jn
msry of the homes of the town. In

to this the efficient management o;
the concern has been evidenced in its
fine product and unimpeachable manu

Burleson, J. Colby Lewis,, J. C. Fi-
fied, Alvin Woodman and. F. D. Bal
lou. Mr. Ballou is now agent and W.
A. Richardson - is assistant , superin
tendent. - .
Belore the flood of 188-6 the Slater
mills operatives were a sort of a large
family, there was little transient labor
here at that time. '
The overseers are recaled as
Charles S. Meech of fiinishing, L. A-.
Thornton of weaving. Captain Alpheus
Weaver of carding, Henry B. Hamilton
of warping; James, Ray of frame spin
ning, Edwin Bennett of mule spinning,
John Haney of dyeing ad Frederick H.
Faning as master mechanic. During
a long term of years at this time A. A.
Young and A. A. Young, Jr., were the
! Slater agents. The senior Mr. Young
established a record in that he never
'missed a payday as paymaster for 50
Forty years ago the Slater mills
manufactured both blue and gold den
im, two patterns of tucking, numerous
plaids and no less than 100 patterns of
pheviot, also a standard three and three
cloth with three blue and three white
The cotton came to the mills in bales
from southern buyers, and was turned
out as a finished product except that
it was sized in Greenville bleachery.
The W. A. Slater ills, Inc., appear
in the tax list of Griswold on levy of
1919 for $297,610.
John Fox Slater was a resident of
Norwich up to the time of his death
and his son, the late William A. Slater,
who died in Washington, D. C, in Feb
ruary, 1919, for years maintained a
finj residence on Broadway, Norwich.

WHAT CATHOLIC MEN COULD DO
IF EARNESTLY ORGANIZED
Because Sunday next - is the commu
nion Sunday for the -Holy Name society
of the parish' Rev.. Mtyles P. Galvin,
preaching at the 10.30. mass in St Pat
rick's church Sunday directed attan
tention to what Catholic men could do
if they were to seriously band themselves
to give to and teach proper respect for
the holy name oi Jesus. The preacher
declared they could make . theirs the
greatest organization in the country in
point of numbers and influence.
Father Galvin. was- considering the
name which was given the Christ-Child
in obedience to the commands of God's
angel a name taught both - Mary and
Joseph by direct messengers from the
Almighty. The name Jesus means
Saviour. It is one to be spoken with
respect, with confidence and- with love.
Respect, as the name given by God
to the Man-God ; confidence, because It
is the only name whereby men can be
saved ; with love, since the Saviour Who
bore that name came, not to manifest
love toward His friends, but toward His
The outrageous use of this holy namu
in trivial conversation, . the profane use
of it by parents before their children
whom they shock and scandalize, the
bad habit of using it to emphasize the
most offensive; of street speech, these
and similar faults were rebuked by the
preacher. Christ Himself declared that
if His disciples would ask His Father
anything in His name it should be grant
ed them ; and this promise was to hold
good with all His followers. Especially
was the name of Christ to be a safeguard
in moments of tempatation. Father Gal
vin recalled the miracle of Peter's cure
of the cripple when, with St John he
was besought for alms as they neared
the Beautiful Gate of the temple ; al-,
though the disciple avowed that silver
and gold he had none, still he gave heal
ing through his confident invocation of
the name of his Divine Master. - ' -This
is the Name which should be to
men a source of grace through life, of !
consolation in the hour of death and
which will insure happiness through
