Racing: To Begin August 20th. On August 20th the Waterbury Driv ing associatioxi will give its midsummer " races, and the -11 an? gement is offering every inducement to horse owners to make the occasion a success; and the public are looking forward to some rare sport. ' The local association has met with unexpected and severe disappointment this season. . In the first place the spring weather was so cold and wet that the horsef were in no oondiiion for the early meeting which was then reluctant ly cut off. When it was time for the midsummer meet the horses were up in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the owners having had the opportunity ' of Entering them in meets that were jheld in several towns only a few miles apart, thus being more profitable on ac count of the expense of transportation to be entailed in shipping the horses down here. And in the schedule ar ranged for the V midsummer circuit Waterbury hasn't had the most favor able treatment. However, the meet of the 20th will find entered a large num ber of the best racers in the circuit. The management offers as a special inducement to cut the entry price f to five per cent of : the purse; and feed, stable room, etc., to be free Great improvements have been made , at the track until now it is the equal of anything on the circuit. Dr. C. Art . Ward, president of Mad River Sanitatum, Waterbury, Conn., cures cases of gall stones ' by painless method the patient passing the stones without pain and prevents their forma tion. Treatment at the sanitarium or : by mail. Cure guaranteed. Consulta tion free. j t The Great Strike. ' , t. The great strike is , now ordered for the 10th. Seventy thousand working- ' men are in it and t means for labor, capital, and the country itself, import ant and most serious" results whatever its issue. N Bloodshed and destruction of life and cf property will in all probability re sult. It is a most , deplorable condition of the commercial and laboring world to contemplate. Present conditions in the United Stales and in " its social, financial and labor centers, clearly prove jthe sorrow ful fact that the average citizen is not capable of self-government, even in a socalled free republic. The rich use its institutions, , officials, government and laws,' to get richer ; and more like a monied aristocracy. r The poor, who live by labor and go on strikes, defy the law of the republic and, in such a con ; test, resort to violence, bloodshed and anarchy. " v The trouble with our country is fun damental. It is in its universal suf frage. ' The absolutely ignorant, rich and poor, have a majority of our voting population. Intelligence as a standard has no show. Our, franchise, having no educational element . as its chief basis, is a farce and commands no ' respect, be cause ignoraut millionaires and ignorant hoboes, on election day, can everywhere vote down, a dozen times over, "men who think." t . It is too bad, too bad. Dr. C. Art. Ward, presinent of Mad River Sanitarium, Waterbury, Conn., removes tape-worms in from 1 to 4 hours, with the head, without fasting or sickness. Treatment at the sanitarium or by mail. , Cure guaranteed. Consul tation free. ' The New Ice Supply. The ice plant which, is now substan tially completed by the owners of The Hellman Brewin g company is a - long needed and' public benefaction in, W ater bury. It will at once jump into pop ularity and it will make the present ice combine, fixing high prices, which has hung about the necks ef the Waterbury public for so many years, look like a sick cat. ' ; , - This new artificial ice plant is con structed on the most modern improved plans. Its cost is over $100,000. It will furnish absolutely pure ice and in any quantity and at low prices. " The .water itself is chemically pure, brought to the steam chambers in pipes from ex ceedingly deep sunk artesian wells. . In the steam chambers it is at' once re duced to steam by vaporization. This treatment at once is a perfect, absolute filter. The steam in vast volume is then conveyed to the cold chambers, where it is almost instantly, by a, mam moth freezing apparatus, condensed in to solid ice, clear as crystal and pure as perfection. ' The immense ice-lined cold air cham bers are intended as a preserving recep tacle for meats, provisions of all kinds, especially for retail dealers, grocers, etc. Another important feature and one - which will be fully appreciated by the public, is the arrangement for a store house with walls of ice for the safe keeping of furs, etc., giving them all summer long a wintry climate, and ab solutely obviating all danger from the ravages of moths,, etc. Gentlemen's - dress suits can also be safely kept on "storage, when not in use; and it will be a blessing appreciated by the men folks to find, when occasion requires its use, a costly dress coat not eaten up by moths its lining showing through in a ' dozen rlaces as is ordinarily the case when the home closet 'does duty for its reception. . The people of the city it is predicted, will patronize the new ice company to the fullest extent, knowing a good thing when they see it. . The Democratic Registrar. a. Tliere has been the past week, in Democratic city politics, an unusually severe squabble over the party registrar ship of voters. The law provides that of these two officials each party shall nominate one, and both nominees are elected. Hence, a nomination on either side is equivalent to an" election. The Democratic wire pullers as a result al ways trot out a lot of candidates, most of them unknown, many of them pos sessing only such knowledge of the party voters as the experience of several years as whiskey dealers can give them, ana sucn ability to nu tne position as mixing cock-tails alone can produce. The Democratic registrar of voters is chosen by the Democratic office-holders for the time being. Hence, as many of these office-holders, if not all of them, hope for and expect a reelection, the amount of wire-pulling by would-be registrars and their "pull" makes "the pot boil" for fair. Well, ( in the scrimmage last week over this office, the division of votes for the'f different . candidates went far towards showing the arrangement for support and hostility which the candi dates in other city leading offices this fall may expect. Evidently there is now much friction existing in Demo cratic ranks which,; unless healed up in advance, will show in a marked degree in the October ballot boxes. .'' But, as the outcome of last week's business "sociable, V the. managers and local office holders of the party should be congratulated on their final choice. Mr. Hynes, who is now the party regis trar, was renominated by a fair major ity ; About one third of the votes how ever, were cast for his chief opponent a' corner whiskey-dealer and these votes, headed by Collector of Taxes Thorns, are generally credited as be longing to and representing the oppo sition to the renomination of ; Mayor Kilduff. First Selectman " Mortimer Doran, desirous of further estabhshing the fact that he -had independent opin. ions of his own on everp subject a fact which he never omits a chance ; to im press upon the public voted of course, as a "lone fisherman," for some obscure fellow whom no one ever dreamed of selecting for such important duties. It has been hinted that Doran so voted as a "straddle" between the friends of Mayor Kilduff, for his renomination, and the opponents of Mayor Kilduff for another term, Doran's . object being to place himself in such a position as 'v to jump eitner way on tne mayoralty question later on; or, in other words, to favor Mayor Kilduff as a candidate, if Mr. Kilduff pledges in advance the office ef superintendent pf public char ities to Mr. Doran, but to oppose Mayor Kilduff and seek the mayoralty nomi nation himself in case Mr. Kilduff re fuses to bind himself to give Doran this important and lucrative position. But, everything considered, the choice of Hynes for registrar was as good as could be made, and if the party later on show as much good; sense in - selecting all its candidates, their ticket for Oc tober will surely be successful.

Naturally all eyes are first turned to the situation in the Demo cratic camp. This is so because Water bury casts a strong majority Demo cratic vote under favorable circum stances. It all , depends, however on what kind of a ticket the party places in nomination whether it succeeds hand somely or is badly whipped. It is therefore- only when we know whom the Democrats select that the question of Republican nominees becomes of any importance or even consideration. Every passing day now sees the Dem ocratic lines drawing closer and closer. The candidates are also beginning to in ject into the canvass their finest work. Mayor Kilduff has many personal work ers, men of great experience, tact and skill. Evidently his honor realizes the fact that much more and harder ante election work for the nomination must be done in his behalf this time than was necessary on any of his previous candi dacies. Heretofore the nomination has sort of "fallen into his lap," easily and without much trouble. On former oc casions, when dozens of othor names have been "mentioned" weeks before hand,and it has been matter of doubt whether Mr. Kilduff would be in the game at all, he has easily been put for ward at the final heat, renominated, and the names and chances of all the other mushroom aspirants have, as the poet puts it "Melted like snow 'neath the glance of the Lord." But this time Mayor Kilduff has a contest on hand in which he has power ful contestants, so powerful in fact that his own chances of success are some what doubtful. The level-headedr shrewd, honest, outspoken, popular Dr. Hayes, is the chief opposing candidate, and who along with being capable, efficient and educated, is beloved by multitudes of friends "for the enemies he has made." At this writing the best informed men in the party place Dr. Hayes ahead in the race, or at least heck and neck with the present incum bent. T ? Captain Fitzpatrick, too, has "las soed" a few backers of importance in the political family, who may yet have a little to say. This candidacy of Fitz patrick draws somewhat from Mayor Kilduff, though really, if Fitzpatrick cannot secure a nomination, his friends are regarded as for Kilduff as second choice. A few- complimentary votes maybe cast for Ed. Tuttle, J. J. Mc Donald, and Lawyer James E. Russell, but only "for fun." Town Treasurer Tuttle ought to put out a card disallow ing the use of his name in this melee. He could not secure the - nomination anyway being disqualified by Amer ican birth and ancestry. By the way Attorney Russell would make an efficient and capable mayor. He is honest and he is popular, , But his candidacy comes too late - this time to make him a : possibility. . "There are others" too far ahead of him at present in the wire pulling and pipe laying bus iness. It will be certainly a "fight to a finish" between Dr. Hayes and Mayor Kilduff. If in chances they keep so nearly together till the night of the convention, in September, it will : fee the most exciting ante-election contest this city has ever witnessed in the his tory of either political party.
