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-

fore be honest with " you. 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.

of the Crosby Grammar school would

-The opening session of the kinder
garten school of St Patrick's church
will be held on Monday morning in
the Lyceum where two rooms have
been arranged for school purposes.
From the number who have already
signified their intention of entering
the school, tlie're is no doubt but that
the two rooms will be comfortably
filled on Monday morning. The Sisters
of St Patrick's parish will have charge
oi me mtie tots. 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.
The board of relief will be in session
t the selectmen's office Saturday,
ovember 3. between the hours nf 7
and S o'clock in the evening, to hear
.outu urooKiyn residents who may
el aggrieved over anv matters in
their neighborhood.
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.
Excellent Winter Program Has Been
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
