Plants DEMOCRATIC RALLY. Speeches By the Candidates For Sena tor, Probate and Representative. '' The democratic candidates for rep resentatives and judge of probate, ac companied by Mayor Kilduff and other prominent men of the party, went to Brooklyn last evening at the request of the democracy of that part of the city. . Their entrance was announced by the blare of a hundred tin horns'and the glare of rockets and colored lights. Through volumes of smoke and amid the din of a thousand voices the sev eral hacks containing the visiting par ty passed up Bank street to the point directly in front of the Bank street school where the rally was heard. Thousands had congregated at this point which was designated by a plat form decorated with gay burning and I'.'.e flag of the country enveloping a large picture of William Jennings Bryan in the rear, it was a picture sufficient to stir the most indifferent heart to .realize the meaning of the great throng, the clamor that was go ing on it all sides and spirit that evoked such a reception. Tiie proces sion was led by a drum corps and when this had rattled off a few na tional airs Alderman Daniel J. Ma haney from the fourth ward ascend ed the platform and introduced Attor ney Florence' Clohessey as chairman of the occasion. In a few words Mr Clohessey remarked upon the meaning of the gathering, the speakers that were to follow him and the great ques tions of the hour which will be de cided by the people next Tuesday for the ensuing four years. He held that all the talk about the dinner pall was nonsense so long as those who use a dinner pail are obliged to pay almost double for what goes into it than they were ever before obliged to do. lie requested his audience to vote in a way to show that they had something else to vote for besides a stomach, to show that they-were not animals and that the author of the phrase, 'the full dinner pail" is not one whit more intelligent than they will be when they enter the polling booths next Tuesday. He then Introduced as the first speaker Mayor Kilduff, who went to the front of the platform amid a storm of cheers. The mayor did not speak at any great length, but lie would remind the taxpayers of the third and fourth wards that they stood by him on many an occasion and lie hoped they would stand by the democratic candidates next Tuesday. Their ticket is your ticket; therefore it is the ticket you should support when you cast you ballot next Tues day and if you do this when your in terests come up to be gerrymandered in the capitol In Hartford you will find that they will be there to look out for you and to protect you. They will give you a fair deal. We all believe they are honest ind they must there- HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRINTS, MOUNTED, AND FINISHED WITH A NICE GRAY MAT, FOR 10 AND 15 CENTS, IN OUR NORTH WIN DOW?

You know how the republicans have treated you. How they have worked against you and your interests. They have cut up tiie wards and this one especially until it is, almost impossible for one to get the full vote on election day. On next Tuesday morning vote early; get your menus to vote with you. The polls . open at li o'clock and close at 5. Give ail the candidates a rousing majority, ana you will not .be sorry tor it. Vote for Mr Kennedy for if there is an honest man in the fifth senatorial dis trict he is Mr Kennedy. He wears no corporation collar. His hands are free. He is not tied, nn to any corporation. and if ho is elected he will show you lie is tree to stand up for you and fight your battles in the legislature." Juuge Jjowe was the next speaker. Mr Lowe was not feeling well yet he persisted in being bareheaded while addressing the people. He said he had not much to say, except that Burns, the Scotch poet remarked, that when he'd go to Heaven all he would oquest was a Scotch welcome and when his own time was come all lie would ask was an Irish welcome like that lie was given this evening. He was glad to see so many boys in the audience and hoped they would whoop er up next Tuesday evening." "You do your duty when you enter the polling booth and there will be no fear of us when the sun sets Tues day evening. We will all be elected and you will not be sorry for sending my mends Kyrne and Guilfoile and Kennedy to look after your interests in Hartford." The next speaker was Mr Byrne, one of the candidates for representa tive. After thanking the people for tiie hearty reception they had given him and his fellow candidates and for their thoughtfulness in arranging the meeting and inviting him and the other candidates to take part in it, he said that when the people would de part for home they would feel that they had spent a profitable evening. J lieu fie took up the subject of gath ering. He said that with the residents of the third and fourth wards to a great extent lay the responsibility of the success of the democratic' candi dates at the election. Former legisla tures were composed of men who had no vital interests in the welfare of the city, lheir foremost purpose seemed to be to perpetuate themselves and to saddle upon the people laws that were obnoxious to them and which thev knew nothing about until they had become parts of the statute laws of the state. This state of things can be remedied by sending men to the gen eral assembly who will look after the welfare of the people and the city. They will never be remedied by repre sentatives of corporations, whose in terests are not the peoples' interests, who want to muzzle the public and de prive them of all voice in public mat ters. Tiie laws have made it so tiiat while tills city is largely democratic the majority of the people are allow ed only a minor representation in all Its elective governing bodies. It is the duty of the people to send represen tatives and a senator to the general assemply who will be on hand when the republicans make their next at tempt to cut up and gerrymander the city. Your interests are the interests of the city and when the latter are interferred with so is the former. You know Judge Lowe. He has stood by you year after year. He tills one of the most responsible ollices that is within your gift and lie has tilled it well. If you elect democrats to the general assembly they will see to it that no coercion takes place wen any measures pertaining to this city are proposed. It is to be hoped then that when you east your ballots next Tuesday, you will not allow any per sonal prejudice to enter your mind, or to aid you in determining what you will do. It is necessary for some men to do things that may make annoy ance to others In the performance of their honest duties. We all make mis takes, no one of us is perfect. Don't let anybody help you making up your mind. That Is a duty you should uo yourself before you cast your vote. You are all good citizens and your vote counts as much as the vote of the president. You are all free and in dependent citizens, be free and inde pendent then when you are casting your vote. It is the duty of every man to vote for the candidate he thinks will make the better otiiclal and if any man here thinks that Mr x urant hisses will make hisses it his duty to vote for him, but I do not think he will make the better man and I know that there are hundreds here tlds evening who think so too. Mr Byrne mentioned his rivals, Messrs Lilley and l'easloy, and they were re ceived with evidence of vigorous dis approval.. "If you wish to elect men who will work for corporations you will vote for Mr Lilley, and Mr Peas ley. If you wisli to see the interests of the Consolidated railroad, the Con necticut Lighting and Power company and the Southern Xew England Tele phone company taken care of and your interests neglected you will vote for the republican candidates. But these corporations, gentlemen, are already taken care of. They have sullieient grasp on the state now so you see your duty Is plain. Elect Judge Lowe and you will elect a good man. Mr Guilfoile, my colleague in this cam paign, is a third ward boy, an able and honorable member of the profession to which I have the distinction to be long. He will take care of your in terests if you elect him for he is a credit to himself, to his people and the city. And as for myself I will try to do the best I can by you and by the city, and if anything is brought before my attention that you should know I will see that you do know it. Vote the democratic ticket from the top to the bottom and you will not be sorry." At this point the fire alarm rung, but Mr Byrne held his audience. Soon after he gave way to Herrman Van Tronk of New lork. The last speaker was Mr Guilfoile. It had by this time grown very cold. Those on tfie speakers' stand were shivering, having been sitting still for almost two hours. Nevertheless when Mr Guilfoile arose to speak the con course of the people showed they were eager to hear him. But he showed he had more consideration for the peo ple than they had themselves. It would be more than any one could ex pect for a speaker to hold a crowd standing in the chill air that was pene trating to say the least. So Mr Guil foile said he would be brief and he was. He assured his hearers that if he is elected he will do what he can for the best interests of the city and its people and no man can do more. So far as contagion from corporations was concerned he was free from ft. It was a pleasure to' him to have at to say that he was nominated for repren sentative by many ox the piayreiiows of his younger- days, and now he had come to ask them for their votes next Tuesday.- The . hearty response that followed showed how the speaker was appreciated In that. part of .the city He concluded with a good word for his fellow catidldates. . The spe'ilers were the guests of Alderman Mahaney after the public . exercises. BROOKLYN , BB1ETS The eighth grade football eleven of the Crosby Grammar school would like to play the eighth gr,ade eleven of the Bank street school. Charles Splain is .manager of the former.

The school will be modern and up-to-date in every re spect, the latest text-books and the most advanced methods of teaching will be employed so that a successful school year is expected. NOTICE.

JUDGE COWELL'S MANIFESTO. Commencing Next Saturday He Will Conduct Court Differently. Judge Cowell jarred everybody's ats iu the district court this fore noon. He said that beginning next Saturday he will insist upon a new and improved order of things and demand silence in his court. At first he did not know who was to blame for the unusual noise that prevails every Sat urday during the short calender iu his court. Xo doubt the lawyers were somewhat responsible, but a good deal of the blame was due to the court re porters, whom he did not thiuk should interfere with the clerk, no -matter if their nerve merited a sojourn in sitae infirmary. So, hereafter everybody must be on the look out for squalls in the district court room when the court is in session. These remarks were made as court was on the eve of ad journment. He said that one of the finest arguments ever made in his court was made this .morning and so great was the noise that one could hardly hear a word. There was not a newspaper man present at the time, they were in the clerk's ofiiee, conse quently the above remarks could not be intended for press representatives. it is true, too, and pity 'tis true that Sheriff Pro Tern Constable Prior had to rap for order several times while the argument in question was going on. The argument was on a motion to a demurrer to certain paragraphs of the answer in the case of the Eagle Lock company of Terrvville against an inventor named Carl O. Xoack. Judge Walsh of Xew Britain appear ed tor the inventor and it appeared from what he said that his client had hired out with the plaintiff for three years. During that time lie invented a part of a lock which the plaintiff claimed should be their property. A ood deal of law relative to patents was gone into and decision was re served. The other business transacted by the court was as follows: Judg ment for foreclosure was granted James E. Baldwin against Mrs A. Con- vard for S2,tH.K). Law day first Mon day in March. There is an attach ment for $25,000 on the property. which is situated on South Main street. Judgment for foreclosure was also al lowed George Faber against Elmer M. Hurlburt for $3,590.30. The prop erty is situated on Griggs street.'Law day first Monday in March. Attorney John O'Xeill representing himself took an appeal from this decision. The score of other matters went over to next week. PUBLIC LECTURE COURSE. Excellent Winter Program Has Been Arranged. The recent public lecture movement iu Waterbury, for which the Water bury Women's club is responsible, is receiving the patronage of an appreci ative community. Last season's course. most entertaining, was an experiment, but it was a success from every point of view. The continued interest in the lectures is proven in the large advance sale of course tickets for the present season, and it is a demonstration that tiie Waterbury ' public welcomes this sort of entertainment and education. The second course promises as well, if judgment may be formed by consid ering the merits of this winter's ad vertised topics and the lecturers. Every one should hear the opening lecture by Edward Whymper, the world re nowned mountain climber. One of that class of traveling sales men who is commonly known as a fakir, has been deceiving wonderfully the people of the East end the last few days. He had for sale lamp wicks, for which he charged the high est price, and found a ready sale. In almost every other house' he sold at least two Of the lamp wicks and sure ly he must have thought the people were dead easy. The wicks appeared all right, but when it was time to use them it was found they were simply no good. One can imagine the wrath of the purchasers, but at the same time they deserve no sympathy. They have been warned time and again to be ware of these fakirs and to buy their goods from reliable merchants of their own town. But there is one thing sure, that fakir will make himself scarce for some time In the East end. At the home of Miss Gertrude Reid, 893 East Main street, a pleasant re ception was held last evening. -, The house was filled with the young friends of the host and a merry time was en joyed. All kinds of games common to children were played, wnne instru mental and vocal music was one of the features of the evening.. During the evening refreshments were served and it was a late hour when the mer ry party came to an end. , The Y. M. C. L. A. gave a smoker in their rooms on Bank- street last night, which was one of the best things' of the kind held in Waterbury this season. A feature of the meeting was an address by District Deputy Johnson of the Maccabees, who gave excellent reasons as to why it pays ta be a member of the. order. Solos were rendered lav James Cassidy, E. B. Probst. Eddie Keefe, Honey White, P. McLaughlin. Hugh Gilland and others. A short address was delivered by Pres ident Edward Skelly. , D.. F. Lawlor gave a recitation. ., There was quartet singing by R. Herr, Hugh Gilland, Ei Probst and T. McLaughlin. .
