The Strike.
The strike, which has now lasted
. some four weeks still remains, though it
was hoped that level heads on both sides
would ere this have shown their good
sense "end brought it to an end. We
only regret that the fear is quite broad
cast now in the public mind that it has
already continued beyond the point
where true wisdom on the part of those
. who engineered it and have it in charge
could have readily obtained from our
manufacturers the one great concession
which could benefit the workingman,
that of nine hours for a work day at
present pr past rates for a day's labor
The leaders of the movement have, we
fear, been altogether too captious and
' demanding over the "union recognition"
clause, to make it easy or possible for
them to obtain now the nine hour day
demand. - If our fears prove correct,
then they have sacrificed the substance
for the shadow, and, by insisting upon
a caprice, have lost to our workmen that
which would alone redound to their
permanent good. '
. Will the managers of the strike be
wiseinthisbefore.it is to late if in
deed it is not already too late to win
the nine hour day. The longer the
strufirsrle is prolonged, the less the
chances of any concession. It is a shame,
if not a crime, to so conduct a move
ment which could and should very eas
ily have won a substantial advantage to
our mechanics' the start. And the
manufacturers are fast reaching, by
reason of the long delay in their busi
ness, a position of complete indifference
as to when they open up again. In the
meantime it is to be" feared that many of
the striking workmen will grow luke
warm even in the main demand and
show their willingness to return regard
less of . what the future may have in
' store for them', feeling "that further re
sistance is of no avail.

Representative Lilley.
In the intricate and always uncertain
game of politics, Waterbury 's represen
tative in the last legislature has no rea
son to feel dissatisfied with his luck on
his first inning. The only difficulty in
it all, its sole disagreeable feature, is the
uncertain character of a man's continu
ous and foturepoUUcal ltdari ty. Few
men have lived and made politic s a study
and a business who have found them
selves all the time "on top"; and poli
tics at best for any length of time is a
. gamble, and in the game of chance,'
played too long or too often, most men
eventually lose more than they !. have
won. To enjoy permanent political vic
tories and to keep on winning them, a
man needs not only a level and careful
head, but also a sufficient ability to read
and understand men and their motives
of applause, to draw out,' rest quietly,
decline and say "No" temporily to their
urgings, confident that by thus "lying
, fallow" a while he can come back to the
political gaming table, as a fresh hand
and full of the. right sort of popularity.
This much by way of friendly sugges
tion to Mr. Iilley. He is a bright man
in his way." He has had, until six
months ago, no experience whatever in
public life or with public men and their
ways. He has begun simply by making
a good impression among his associate
legislators as a beginner. This fact he
should, for his own sake and the future,
never forget to bear in mind. Politi
cians and political wire-pullers are
"mighty onsartin" in their doings; their
contracts, their promises of the future,
and their applause. They will agree to
day to run a fellow at next state con
vention for high office, and trade him
off or cut his throat weeks before it is
held. , They can unmake more quickly
a candidate whom they have urged for
an office than they have made him what
he. is. That man has the largest and
longest political success who knows
enough to figure himself at just what
he knows himself to be not what a
. host of political shouters, heelers, and
present advocates of his advancement
tell him that he is. If he sizes himself
up correctly, and is not' carried away
through the praise and eulogy of self
seekers to a point where he gets a' con
ceited idea of his own fitness, experi
ence or capacity, he generally will pur
sue the. course most advantageous for
Now, for a beginner in the legislature,
Mr. Iilley has done, all things consid
ered, very well. He has not, certainly
at present; the necessary ability or expe
rience to be governor, and the talk of
such a thing is arrant nonsense. This
no one knows better than himself, if
after a good dinner and plenty of talk
at the club he will only stop to think
over it at his home just a moment before
retiring to his bed at night. Neither
. has he the proper capacity, ability dr ex
perience for a congressman at large or
at small. This, too, he knows, if he
takes thought a moment. What in ca
pacity, ability and future experience he
may develop remains to be seen. His
'chances for future preferment will de
pend, not upon what a few politicians
who dine and wine on his bounty at his
Quassepaug bungalow tell him they will
run him for, but rather upon what ca
pacity, ability and experience he may
nereaiter exhibit to convince the men
who vote that he is a competent man
for the office for which he asks their
As yet Mr. Iilley is politically on trial
He does not want to let his head de
velop,at the instance of convivial guests,
into an idea that he is a bigger man than
he really knows himself to be. If he
puts his confidence in the promises and
asseverations of political "princes," he
not only goes counter to the advice of
the sacred Wise Man who remarked
"Put not your trust in princes," but he
is only paving the way for a sudden,
solid, heart-breaking, disappointing and
permanent fall into political oblivion.
. "Bumble bees are biggest when first
hatched." So are fresh legislators and
new politicians. To reduce this prema
tore bigness, this abnormal political
swelling, should be the first and para
mount duty of Mr. Iilley to himself, if
he has any hope or thought of future
successful political advancement.
The Examiner man, in the above sug
gestions, gives them to our "rising
politician in a feeling of warm and well
meant friendship. But people do not,
we know, always take kindly advice,
where flattery is not a part of it, yet
which if followed would be the better
for them. " -

that must be considered very reasonable.

Forest Park's Formal Opening.
Last Saturday was the formal open
ing day of Forest park for the season of
1901; The Waterbury Military hand
gave a concert of nearly a dozen selec
tions. The park has undergone a num
ber of improvements during the spring
months, and with additional attractions
and special features it will be quite as
popular, if not more so, than last sea
son. This year the resort is under the
sole management and personal super
vision of Jean Jacques himself. This
week the vaudeville performances will
begin, and afternoon and evening dur
ing the season (except Sunday) will be
given at a and ) o'clock.

The reduction sale of trimmed hats at

it is appreciated as the opportunity of

Our Sewerage. '
The city of Waterbury is fast ap
proaching the point where the question
of sewage disposal must be met and ad
justed. If we remember correctly the
date fixed, for us to have our new sys
tem built and inaugurated, as deter
mined long since by the superior court
at its session held by Judge Shumway,
this change was to be effected by the
city, no matter at what expense, on or
before January 1, 1903, As yet our city
fathers have done nothing of impor
tance even looking towards obeying the
order of the court, except to send City
Engineer Cairns recently on an educa
tional trip to Europe. We have, it is
true, bought and paid a good round sum
for several expert opinions from Engi
neer Rudolph Hering of Philadelphia, at
divers times; but so far as we know, no
action has been taken upon any of them,
except to pay for them and order them
on file, which is the same as throwing
them into the city waste basket or
relegating them to the domain of ancient
municipal history. We have been up to
Hartford this last session, asking to
bond our city for all sorts of necessary
jimcracks, except . the all-unnecessary
one of sewage disposal, and lately our j
mayor went to Boston and negotiated
with its bulls and bears over $40Q;000
new city bonds, of lots just authcfnzediBL
few weeks ago for other purposes-but
none of their proceeds are to go towards
pavine f or what we must have" under a
heavy penalty for failure to comply with
the court's decree.
Why is this slackness on the part of
our city government ? Why this haste
to issue bonds for purposes which can,
every one of them, safely wait quite a
spell, when the matter of providing for
this sewage disposal is urgent and in
evitable? Why place on our people
greater and less necessary city burdens
to the half million dollar mark for other
and less pressing purposes, (if indeed
some of them are needed at all, either
now or hereafter) when we know for
certain that we must at once tackle this
his sewasre disposal problem, and that
the burden of its cost may run any
where from a half million to a million
and a half of dollars? Are our city
officials incompetent and improvident ?
Do they entertain the notion that when
the city comes to meet . this question,
the expense of any system will reach
figures so astounding to our taxpayers,
that they will for years afterwards
stand a poor chance to engineer and
manipulate city bonds for unnessary,
gimcrack, and mostly ridiculous pur
poses, and consequently they thus have
sought to secure in advance bonds for
schemes unnecessary, ill-advised projects
and personal fads, before the drop comes
on the sewage disposal matter, and the
taxpayers groan in dead earnest? Do
they know what a decree of a court
means and that it is to be obeyed by a
city just as much as the individual ? Do
they realize that the city of Waterbury
is today under a standing, permanent
injunction from the superior court of
this state, absolutely restraining it from
its present system of sewage disposal in
to the Naugatuck river, after January
1, 1903 if we have the date correct?
Do they suspect that, for violation of
that decree if only for. a day after that
date, this city sends its sewage into the
Naugatuck, the terms of the injunction
call for a $10,000 cash penalty for our
citizens to pay ? . r.
And yet these citizens go on bonding
us for other purposes, and do nothing to
meet this sewage dilemma now con-'
fronting us. JThey want bonds for city
electric plants, bonds for water meters,
bonds for every piece of npnsenseytand
secure most of them but still neglect
making provision for. that . most.,yital.
What can they be thinking of?
Then, too, notwithstanding all this, in
our. present situation, sthey order new
sewers, main and side sewers, they- go
ahead and construct them, the bureau
i pfjissesnients laysvassesionents .dn-ad
joining property .noiaers, t pay aom, ,
terms of the charter a few days after
the aldermen confirm them, and at once
collect' in on them what they are. able?
Do they not know that, so long as the
city is under a permanent injunction of '
our courts, not to use our present sew
age disposal system a single day after a
year and a half hence, such assessments
are void, and not a dollar,, is, legally col
lectible? Do, they not kijpw thajj the
city, if it takes our money on sewerage
assessments, must give a legal consider-;
ation for that money, just as an indi
vidual must do in the case of a private
contract? Is not a sewage disposal,
which the court has pronounced illegal
and order abolished on a certain day, an
illegal consideration on which to base a
sewerage assessment of an individual ?
Can the city legally assess a property
holder and takejiis money for a benefit
it is not in shape to give him perma.
nently? Is it not, then, the only legal,
business like and safe course for- the
board of aldermen to pursue, to attend.
to the main question, a proper, legal
sewage disposal for the city and desist
rom" spending money on main or side
sewers with assessments illegal and
therefore uncollectible from , property
owners, and that, too, until a permanent
and satisfactory system has been fully
completed within the time limit of the
court's injunction upon us?
Unique Memorial to a. Plsr.

than . that which was erected at the
Hotel de Yille by the inhabitants of
Luneberg, in Hanover, in. honor, of. a
pis This, which took the form or a.
kiid of mausoleum, contained a large
glass case in which was hermetically
inclosed a fine ham cut from the ani
xn&l, whose memory was to oe hand
ed down to 'posterity. Above was a
handsome slab of black marble, on
which, engraved in letters of gold,
was the following inscription in.Xat
in: "Passers-by contemplate here the
mortal remains of the pig which ac
quired for itself imperishable glory ,
by the discovery of the salt springs ol
