Editorial and Printing Offices: 46 Market Street. Why Not Speak Up? So far, all who have been heard from in response to my circular in The Examiner last week, have declared in favor of placing a ticket in the field; but several of those who took a warm interest in the work two years ago and who were expected to send an immediate response, one way or the ' other, have not yet been heard from to . date, (Friday.) If they persist in this si lence it shall be taken as an indication of indifference, and as discouraging any fur tber efforts in the direction suggested. The number declaring in favor of the move ment are not enough to warrant the un dertaking. However, there is time enough yet, If all will speak up promptly on re ceipt of this. I would ask it as a special favor of our friends to do so, that we might get to work at once, or else that I may get the matter off my mind. Fraternally, ' ? - Robert Ptne. Hartford, Oct. 8, '90. v Many are Heard From! In response to the above, several com munications have came in this week some in favor of placing a ticket in the field,oth ers fearing it would be a waste of time and means, that the mass of the people were not worthy of any sacrifice on their be half. A suggestion from one comes, how ever, which1 seems wise and practical. "Wliy do we need a convention called ?" he asks. "With us it is not a question of men, it is a question of principle. Why then can't our State Committee give us a ticket that will represent all we desire to vote for ? Five cents apiece will pay for the tickets, and if there is to be any speak ing, let it be in small halls and take up collections for defrayment of expense . Speakers can be had without price. If a contingent fund is essential I feel sure that there are a dozen men in the State who will contribute at least $10 a piece, and a hundred more who will contribute a dollar ; a piece. This will cover all the expense necessary to be incurred." , The' chairman will act on this sugges tion, convene the State Committee, invit ing all others interested who . may desire to advise and co-operate; and if the major ity sanction the plan, it shall be put in op eration without delay. Fraternally,' :V..vC'. --. .x. Robert Pyne. Hartford, Oct. 10, W. AROUND HOME. The Nationalist Club will hold its regu lar meeting at Unity parlor Monday even ing. ' Wo hope there will be a large attend ance, i - t: . " - After its summer vacation, the Equal Rights Club will resume its meetings at 2:30, today, (Saturday,) at Unity parlors. All Interested are cordially invited. The 35th semi-annual meeting of the Connecticut Eclectic Medical Association will be held at the States Hotel, next Tues day. The session will commence at 10 a. va, .- .. - . v. Mr. E. C. Frisbie, of Talcott, Frisbie & ' Co., has been chosen a vice-president of the National Wholesale Drug Association, and feels proudly over it. Yet it is sup posed that Mr. 'c Frisbie is "agin" trades unions of workingmen. Today at 2:30, Mrs. Hooker, who is one of the managers of the World's Columbian Commission, wi?l address the Equal Rights Club,-at Unity Ball. It is not expected 'that she will defend the "equal rights" of the capitalists and laborers to hire Pinker ton's troops. r Young Major Jos. M. Doyle of the Fa ther Matthew Drum Corps has been pres ented by his associates with a . gold medal, suitably engraved, as a token of apprecia tion for the interest and ability displayed in his management for the past five years. We are happy to chronicle such items as this, for the cause of Father Mathew is al ways a good cause to make noise over. . ... NOTES POLITICAL. Senator Hawley is now earning his part of the $5,000 salary at home for a while. : The Democratic town committee has opened headquarters at 245 Main street, up one flight. Scarcely high enough. Although the Republican town commit tee is about to occupy a room in the JEtna building, no startling eruption need be an ticipated. :" ' It is said that the estate of the late Ma jor Smith will inventory in all nearly $35, 000, including $15, 000 in life insurance. We remember the time when the departed labored in the Weed establishment for $1. 25 per day. If he had only engaged in the work of striving to make the world better for all humanity to live in, he would now be spoken of as one of those who "sold out to the Republicans." The Talcott-Philbrick contest is at last ended, and the secret ballot law (so much cf it as the corruptionists left us) is saved. The supreme court of the State has so de cided; and the present governor, in or out of power, will hardly launch out any more "Citizen's" parties from his private office This is a slap in the face to petty political trickery, that will be beard alone the lines of the future. But the envelope nui sance must go and the genuine Australian measure mast come, the Hartford Times Lynde Harrison and all the other hypo crites, tricksters and corruptionists to the contrary notwithstanding. The Republican State central committee held a meeting at the Allyn House.Tuesday evening-. All the Republican candidates on the State ticket are said to have been present with the exception of Farmer Bow en, who seems to have an aversion to the company he was thrown into. He is there as a representative of the farmer alone, and evidently discerns a difference between the honest hnsbandman and the wily poli tician. But Lynde Harrison was there "just the same," which makes up for the absence of any half dozen where there is "engineering' to be done. Report sayeth not that the old man of the "Times" was present, although himself and Lynde were ardent associates at the meeting where the present bastard secret ballot bill was con cocted to supercede the genuine. Perhaps they will see each other later. There will be a meeting in Allyn Hall this (Friday) evening, in aid of , the "Irish famine fund." Certainly the poor, de frauded and oppressed people of Ireland need help when the potato crop goes back on them, for all the other products of the Island must go to pay for the labor of the men who kindly made the land for the po tato eaters to live on. The men engineer ing this "plan of campaign"are philanthrop ists of very long range they never bother with famine or the fear of famine at their own doors- For instance they never call meetings or place their check books on re cord when poor cloak-makers revolt against an ever abiding famine, or railway men against enforced idleness which means the same thing. Still we hope the philantropic gentlemen will contribute' freely. Some of them can well afford to, and they got their money easily. Others must be. satis fied with contributing their sympathy 'tis all they have been permitted to retain. - The gentlemen of the Democratic State committee having charge of the oratorical part of the campaign, met Thursday to lay out their plan of action. Some of the best available Democratic talent of the country are promised to illuminate the minds of the Connecticut workers as to the mighty issue of the campaign and their especial interests involved. They will denounce the robber tariff and the consequent Trust, saying nothing, however, of the existence of the same industrial hog in free-trade England. .The "force bill" will too be excoriated, but not a word 6aid of the conditions that force the worker into the meanest of habi tations as "tenant at will" while the idler revels in luxury in his mansion, the tenant as his serf. But the poor innocent worker will applaud, all the same; it never coming into his mind to once ask his instructor, "what's to prevent the Trust from raising the price of its commodities and absorb all that a lower tariff might save us ?" Such questions as that, might spoil he show, and that would not be fair to the men making the investment. Neuralgia is obstinate. Johnson's Ano dyne Liniment has cured many severe cases. ANNOUNCEMENTS. The Saint Augustine Society will give a dance in Central Hall Thursday evening, Oct. 16th. A pleasant time is assured for all who attend. John C- McManus, of 102 Main street, advises the good citizens of Hartford that if they do not want to freeze to death they should visit him and buy good stoves for both parlor and kitchen. Is your flour barrel getting empty! We hope not; but if it is you had better go at once to 535 Main street and get a barrel of "Crocker's Best." Mr. Shaw will be gtad to serve you with it, and also with a great variety of food for man or horse. Many of our readers will soon be hunting round for good underwear, : comfortables and blankets, and will certainly find their way to The Workingman's Dry and Fancy goods store at 358 Main street, where Messrs. Stern & Co. supply all kinds, of furnishing goods for both ladies and gen tlemen.

Concave the bottom and grout with a mortar of gravel cement. Then build a four-inch wall with brick, laid in cement mortar, extending the wall far enough above ' the . surface to furnish ground grade and provide "top- water drainage from the vault:' '.Cement the bottom and each side wall,' after which take two smooth 2x4 scantlings, same length as depth of vaul t, and' pi ace one on each side as shown in" the illus tration.

Orange Judd Farmer. , OVERREACHED HIMSELF. ... ... . . , Xow Bfaud S.'a . First . Owner Acquired , . Possession of Her. It is t pretty generally .known ' that Captain George N. Stone, of 'Cincinnati, was the original owner of the famous mare Maud S. The following; incident; showing that it was a mere chance which made her his property, may not be so familiar, says Chatter; ; ... , Captain Stone and a fellow-townsman. Mr. H -, decided to go down into) the Kentucky blue-grass . region and; .see what they could pick .up in the way of yearling colts, i They each wanted one. Now, Mr. H - was a man noted: for his shrewdness and; ability to get the best of every thing for .the least money. After skirmishing around among , the stock farms, two such animals as they were looking . f or? were obtained i and shipped to the Ohio river, to be sent to Cincinnati on the steamboat. It was a curious coincidence that the two horses cost the same, and, moreover, resembled each other very strongly. The two gentlemen went back to Cin cinnati by rail and were present on the arrival of the boat which brought their purchases. As the horses were brought down the a&nsr plank the first one ap peared with its coat in good condition and spirits 'way - up. The second was rather rough-coated from rubbing against the stall and came meekly along. Mr. H sized up these appearances and said he guessed he'd take his colt up himself, at the same time reaching for ward for the halter of the first horse. Captain Stone said: "H , I think that one is mine. Oh, no, it isn't," replied H -, "I re member mine had a smooth coat of hair." MWell, all right," remarked the ac commodating Stone, "I guess there's not jmuch difference. The horses cost' the saaoe and are the same age. Trot her' oflH Captain Stone took his colt home, and when bis daughter saw the meek little aimal she Immediately took a fancy to It and made a pet of it, So her father called it after her name, "Maud S." It t perhaps needless to ' say that H eolt has neve been heard from. AT THE OPERA HOUSE. "OXB OF 2BK3 .BRAVEST." "One of The Bravest" tells the story of the dangers of New "Xjork firemen in a re alistic and startling way. Charles McCar thy, the etar, is -a first-class actor, and gives a splendid impersonation of "Larry Howard," a fire laddie. Wm. Cronin, an actor welUknown in Hartford, and former ly with W. J. Scanlan, is another -star, and takes an important part in the play. This production id well mounted, especially the fire scene, with a real fire engine and three beautiful horses.

Eggs have not been so high for years t at this season as now; they will be still high er. Hens rarely ever lay while moulting, then help them to get their new plumage quickly.. ;..y"-:.V,;. '" Many people get only five to six dozen eggs in a year from a hen and lose money when they ought to get three times that many and make money rapidly. How ? There are about 600 eggs in the ovaries of a hen; get all you can In two years, then kill the hen. You thus save two or three years feeding of the hen, which is no small tern if you buy all the food. When a ben s In '-'condition" says a high poultry au- thority"she will lay plenty of eggs." There- ore help her through the moulting seas on, that she may be in condition to : lay during the winter. Thousands of people have proven Sheridan's Condition Powder to be worth its weight in gold when hens are moulting. It keeps them in health, helps form the new plumage, and gets them in condition to lay early. If you give them during the moulting Sheridan's Condition Powder dally in extra doses, they will get to laying much sooner and lay all winter; larger, better, and more vigorous eggs for hatching, than pullets. But don't keep them a third year; get all the eggs in two. Remember Sheridan1 8 Powder is not an egg-food; you can raise or makejood as cheaply as anyone. To any person inter ested, I. S. Johnson & Co., Boston, Mass., on receipt of address and stamp for reply, will send a recipe for making a good egg- food at small cost. Any person buying and using Sheridan's Condition Powder now, will get their hens in good laying con dition and stand a good chance to win one of the large gold premiums to be offered aler by the same firm; who are the only makers of Sheridan's Condition Powder. For 50 cents they will send two 25 cent packs, five packs for $1; or for $1.20 one arge 2 pound can of Powder, post paid: six cans for $5. express prepaid.
