Cowles of Hotclikissville Should ; Re
member of Clowes of Vaterbury."
President Cowles. of the American
Knife Co. at Hotclikissville, was iu
Waterbury yesterday and has been re
ported in one of the papers as stating
', that if Bryan is elected he will have
to shut up shop. Mr Cowles must
have been joking, else ne never would
have made such a remark as that in
AVaterbury- Our distinguished towns
man, Georjie H. Clowes, said the same
thing just before Clevelanu 'was elect
ed and after all the factory never had
such a Tun of business a it had dur
ing the regime o the republicans, and
who knows but tilings may turn out
the same way with the Hotclikissville
The democrats will hold another
rally to-morrow night, when George
Fred Williams of Boston and the Hon
Daniel Davenport of Bridgeport' will
speak on national and state issues io
thy auditorium.
The republicans are becoming very
uneasy over Connecticut and grave
doubts are entertained as to the re
sult of the great contest between the
masses on one side and the classes on
the other. The work of the trusts and
how they effected the laboring classes
is being laid thread bare by the demo
cratic speakers and in consequence
the republicans are getting desperate.
Go to the rally in the auditorium to
morrow night.
A reporter of the Democrat was In
formed to-day that a co-tain number
of democrats and republicans have
combined for the purpose of electing
George I,. I.illey and Attorney Guil
foile to the general assembly, leaving
Mr Byrnes and Mr IVasley at home
to attend to their office practice. It
is hoped that no one who pretends to
be a democrat will have anything to
do with the scheme. The democrats
are able to elect Brynes and Guilfoile
and ir is their duty to do it.
Brooklyn district is to have a grand
rally on Friday night and that part of
the city will be treated to one of those
enthusiastic rallies similar in many
respects to the one of Monday night.
It will be held in Washington square,
near the school house, and the speak
ers will be Wifliam Kennedy, It. A.
Lowe. M. J. Bryne and F. I". Guilfaile.
There will he other noted sneakers
there also whose names cannot yet be
given out. There will be lots of music
and plenty -bf red lire to make things
hum over in that hustling district.
William Kennedy's remarks in City
hall Monday night on the work of the
trusts in Xaugatuck and other New
England towns caused many people
pause and wonder, how much longer
Waterbury will have to wait when it
will be up against the trust. That"s a
question for the people to decide. If
the electors of Waterbury and. the
other towns In the state do meir duty
on the sixth of November' we'll hear
no more of the likelihood of doing all
the work of the city at one of two
places. Go and hear George Fred AVil
liai'ns talk on this subject to-morrow
Prospective builders of homes who
found the price of everything -that
goes into a house so high the past
year or two that he could not afford
to commence operation should drop
into the auditorium to-morrow night
and learn something about the cause
of the high prices of lumber, nails, ce
ment and everything except labor. It
Is a well known fact that the trusts
crippled the building business all over
the country during the present year
and people who have grown tired of
the load should make it a point to see
that they are not compelled to carry
it four years more,
There are a large number of "De
serted Villages" in Connecticut. Our
morning contemporary printed a
sketch of one of them last Sunday, and
there will be more if the people do
not rise up en-masse and stay the rav
ages of the trusts and combines, which
tinder -the fostering hand of the Me-Kinley-Hanna
administration, are fast
undermining the foundation of this
grand republic and threaten to lix
things so that in a short time we will
"--bo forced to exclaim with the author
of the "Deserted Village:" "One only
master grasps the whole domain!" Go
. to the auditorium to-morrow night and
hear the democratic speakers upon the
Sevetod prominent democrats of the
eastern stV-tion of tile c:ty would like
to know now several other supposed
i democrats lh tliat section stand on tne
. question of the candidates for senator
ship. It is known that Harry Durant
conferred several times with those
democrats, the last meeting being
held in a saloon In the vicinity of the
Sacred Heart church. Harry has prom
ised that he will do certain things for
these men and in return they have
agreed to support him. Tnese men
. may have, thought they were doing
things secretly, but if so they are mis
taken, for they are being watched care
fully. Democrats in The eastern sec
tion should be on their guard and not
let themselves be deceived by the al
viee of false leaders, one or two of
whom had a part In the nomination of
Attorney Kennedy for senator. There
is no need of mentioning names. .Let

' sprung a few Jokes upon the crowd
about "Pat's" quaint humor, tried to
defend the murder of the Filipinos and
endeavored to make a laugh of the. im

administration. The other . speaker,
Sam Fessenden. devoted most of his
time to showing -what he considered
the weak points of the democratic
party and defending the trusts and
combines. He thought" England had
more trusts than we have, and. no
doubt, in their- zeal to ape -the Euro

Jennie Lefebvre, Who Ran Away 1 to
j ', ' Xew. York' Last Week.
i Jennie Lefebyre, Who with Mamie
Dillon ran away from home last week
to become an actress, was before the.
ity court this morning charged with
being incorrigible. Jennie is about 16
years old. She wore a red cap, her
hair hung in two braids, one thrown
artistically over her left shoulder. She
seemed entirely unconcerned. Mrs Le
febvre stated that Jennie is her adopt
ed daughter. The adoption was made
through the courts when the girl was
only fifteen months old. She testified
to her going away to New York last
week with the Dillon girl and that the
latter wore male attire during her ab
sence. Irately she said it has become
impossible to control the girl's inclina
tion for thieving. Money is her espe
cial object and the day before she ran
away she stole her mother's pocket
book containing $10. It Is to pay her
way to the theaters that she steals.
Jennie had nothing to say for herself,
and while her mother was in tears at
the prospect of their parting Jennie
was all smiles. When the time came
for her to go she stolidly walked out
of the room without even a word of
farewell to her weeping mother. She
was committed to the Industrial School
.for Girls.
Frank Yoshinskas was fined $5 for
throwing handbills on the street.
The Ex-President Says There Is a
Landslide For Democrats.
Grover Cleveland, former president,
in an interview which I had with him,
says a Princeton correspondent of the
Philadelphia Times, predicted a land
slide to William Jennings Bryan, the
democratic candidate for president.
He advanced several reasons for this
For an hour the great democratic
statesman fought shy of any reference
to the political situation. He urged
that he no longer takes any active in
terest in politics, and is content to
quietly look on. Then our conversa
tion turned to the condition in the
west, and after a little reminiscent
talk Mr Cleveland said:
"My young man, you will see a land
slide for Bryan the morning after elec
tion. Of that I am confident."
To this I repliedithat the indications,
according to the republican leaders,
are favorable to McKinley, but he
quickly retorted:
"Of course they are. That is policy;
what I tell you is my private opinion."
There was no doubt concerning the
former president's sincerity in his ex
pressed belief, and when I asked him
what reasons he had for so thinking,
he continued:
, "You do not understand the condi
tions. There are elements all over the
country at work which it would be im
possible to draw into line for McKin
ley. In the first place, union labor is
for Bryan. Of recent years tills or
ganization of labor has been a factor
in politics and it certainly is not fav
orable to the Interests of capital.
"The traveling men are for Bryan.
These men, who are a small army, are
of the opinion that the . republican
party is the protector of corporations,
and by the amalgamation of industrial
interests many of them have been
thrown out of employment.
"In the northwest, in Minnesota, Da
kota and Iowa there are many Hol
landers. Sympathy for the Boers, who
are their own Hesh and blood, will in
duce them to support Bryan. See if
I am not correct.
"I have no desire to be drawn into
any controversy over the results of the
election, but if the republican man
agers honestly 'think that President
McKinley will be re-elected, it is my
opinion they are mistaken. They do
not know the situation."
Further than this Mr Cleveland re
fused to discuss the campaign. He
said Mr Bryan is a remarkable orator,
and has a magnificent personality,
which is responsible for his tremend
ous popularity. I asked him what the
effect of an oratorical campaign is. He
said :
"Well, for a man who can talk as
Bryan does, it is a successful method.
For a candidate who is not an orator,
it would be a dismal failure."
Mr Cleveland said that in spite of
his political inactivity, he had been
sought by representatives of all the
leadine papers, who are apparently
eager to obtain his opinion of the
situation. He has steadfastly reiuseu.
because, as he said to-day, "I am out
of active politics."
Matters Are Seriously Mixed and
Thousands Have Been Killed.
New York. Oct 31. C. B. Hart,
United States minister to Colombia,
has arrived here and is on his way to
his home in Wheeling, W. Va, said in
an Interview: .
"Matters in Colombia are seriously
mixed. The liberals started a second
revolution a few days ago, and it has
developed great strength. The fight
ing has been fierce, and up to date the
killed and wounded have numbered
"While the liberals have met with
much success, it is my belief that the
government will be eventually success
ful. But the revolution is seriously
disturbing business. General Prosperq.
rinzon is in command of tne govern
ment forces and the revolutionists are
commanded by General Rafael Uribe.
The scene of the trouble is in the de
partment of Cauca. . . . ,
"In the recent election, san ukiiicl-
ti and Senor Marroguin were elected
president and vice-president, respec
tively, San ClementI, because of the
state of his hearth, could not live m
Bogota, and went to VHieta. .In his
absence Marroguin started a rebellion
and assumed the presidency,, securing
the recognition of all tu eforelgn pow
ers except the Papal See."

Will Confine Bids' for New Road to
Residents of Waterbury.
The board of public works held Its
regular meeting last night.' there being
present 'Commissioners Whiting, Ma
haneyV Blakeslee, Chessoft, '. Superin
tendent Reiiey of the. street;;- depart
ment, Superintendent O'Brien of the
bureau of water, Engineer Cairns and
City Clerk Ryan. .In the absence of
Mayor Kllduff , who was presiding at
the meeting of the board of public
safety, Commissioner Scully acted as
Chairman pro tern.
Hearings were given to parties In
terested In the grade and layout of
Branch and Grant streets, the exten
sion of Beacon street to Fleet street,
the change of grade at the corner of
Orange and Walnut streets, the layliig
of sidewalks on Brewster street and
Easton avenue and a sewer in West
Grove street from North Willow street
to connect with the sewer already laid
in that street. The board acted favor
ably upon all the above -mentioned mat
ters and recommended to the'aldermen
that the several projects be carried
out. The law date for the laying of
sidewalks on Brewster street and Eas
ton avenue was fixed for December
1, 1900.
On motion of Mr Whiting it was
voted that property owners on How
ard street between Wolcott street and
South Oak street be cited before the
hoard on November 13 at 8- o'clock in
the evening to be heard relative to the
establishing of a grade and layout for
that street between the poin?3 men
tioned. The petition of James" O'Brien to
maintain a lunch cart in the West End
was taken from the table and a vote
passed giving the petitioner leave to
witlntraw. The board was favorably
disposed towards the petition until
they learned that almost all the people
in that neighborhood were opposed to
it. and that settled it.
It looks as if the board is likelv to
have some trouble with the Connecti
cut Lighting and Power Co regarding
the removal of the pole that stands in
the square ntjhe junction of North
Main and North Elm street and which
the board ordered removed before the
work of paving the street was com
menced. The company claims that the
abutting property owners have refused
to allow them to change It to a suita
ble location and that they will comply
with the order of the board as soon
as the city finds a place for them to'
put it in. The board did not take very
kindly to this proposition, and know
ing that in its present position it is a
menace to life and limb, all agreed
that it should be taken from there as
quickly as possible and with this end
in view the following resolution was
"Voted, That this board regards the
electric wire pole on North Main
su-ei-i, opposite -ortn iiiim street, as
dangerous and a menace to public
safety, and hereby orders the Connecti
cut i,igming and I'ower Co to remove
it, and the city clerk Is instructed to
translate through the city sheriff this
order to the companr.
It was the sense of the meeting that
tlie snerill serve a copy of the vote on
the company to-day.
AVhen the matter of commencing on
cratious at the Wigwam reservoir was
broached, one of the commissioners
asked Mr Cairns if he thought that
ttie city would lose anything by confin
ing this work to local contractors as
well as to local laborers. Mr Cairns
said he believed that wo could get ex
celleut results and confine the bids to
residents of Waterbury. It was then
voted that the engineer be instructed
to advertise for bids for the construe
tion of a new road at the Valley turn
pike, the bids to be confined to rest
dents of the town of Waterbury. The
raising of the dam will throw the
water back onto the present roadway.
and in order to avoid trouble a new
highway will have to be constructed
before doing anything else.
The water rates for the past six
months were received and ordered
transmitted to the collector for collec
It was voted to recommend to the
aldermen that public necessity and
convenience require that a wall be
built on Mill street along the Mad
river trom Baldwin street to the prop
erty of the Waterbury Clock Co, and
that the board be requested to provide
funds to do the work. The estimated
expense was given at $3,000. A sim
ilar vote was passed in reference to
the need of cleaning the basin of the
East Mountain reservoir, which the
superintendent reported in a very
dirty condition, and as it is now prac
tically dry it is considered a very op
portune time to do such work as Is re
quired fo put it in a sanitary condi
tion. The miscellaneous bills and the pay
rolls were aproved. The latter were
as follows: "Water. $481.75; streets,
$1,505.15; sewers, $114.75; engineering,'
