WATER B UR Y, CONX, WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 7, 1900. PRICE TWO CENTS. KENNEDY. LOWE Elected By Democrats yesterday Bronson Also Got Majority Here Big Vote and Quiet Election Notes. Hie election returns contain little consolation for the democrats ami m consequence they are not in the very best kind of spirna to-day, though, to be sure, none of them lias been re ported missing or charged with threat ening to wreak vengeance upon hi neighbors for the whipping they save Bryan and nearly all the other demo crats yesterday. It was a great day and the battle, i hough apparently somewhat lopsided, was one of the hottest in the history of the country, and although the democrats got the worst of it, still it cannot be called an inglorious defeat, for every inch ot giound was disputed and n took the victors all their time to keen ahead. The result must be decidedly sausJac tory to the trusts and combines and also to the laboring classes, the lormer being given a renewal of their right to rob and plunder at will and the lat ter satisfied that they will have full full dinner pails for tour years more. This, in the opinion ot the republican campaign orators, was the only thing the working people cared anything about and they kept it under iheir noses since the campaign opened and while some people might regard n in Ihe light of an insult to say that the masses have no higher aspirations in life than that which pertains to their stomachs, the republicans decided to take their chances with it as a na tional issue and it turned out to be a drawing card.

It was reported ihat Bryan would carry Waterbury and he would, had it not been for an element of so-called democrats who thought themselves wiser than their party and who, while proclaiming themselves democrats, talked. worked and voted for McKinley or tor the candidate of some other party which meant about the same as a vote tor the present ad ministration. Considering the way things went, on the state and national tickets it is a wonder that the demo crats got anything out of it. and the election ot William Kennedy. Judge Lowe and Francis P. Guilfoile is due largely to the extreme popularity of the men. for where such a landslide occurred it is no guesswork to state that tile democrats who won must have commanded not only the confi dence of their own party but also that of the opposition as well. But what s the use talking about the battle now. anyway, the water ques tion is of more importance at present. Let the hgures tell the story.

Holohan., Henry W.. Minor, John O'Neill. John J. O'Neill, Finton RusselL Edward L. Seery, William Attorney Marsh was at his office in ihe superior court room before 9 o'clock this morning looking pretty good for a defeated candidate. Who -were the members of the Wa terbury club who wished to serenade Senu tor-elect William Kennedy"; Echo auswers that George White and Judge Co well were not opposed to the movement. Mr Durant has gone to Old Toint Comfort to rest a few days, and for the comfort he so sadlT needs. Yes terday toward the close of the day w contest lie was far from looking u well man. Ah. but isn't Attorney Guilfoile a. splinter' How he did crawl over Brother Peaslev's head and pursued I Mr Lilley with such speed that nianv I think if the 'utile had lasted a little I longer lie wou.d have outstripped lnni. too. The moment Janitor McGraw put his head inside the door of his juris diction, the court house building, tins morning, lie said: "Well, what do you think of the situation now.'' For the past two months the janitor has been asking this question night, noon and morning of the court attaches, and 11 is still a vigorous question with him. Chris Duiipuv. ot the third ward, is one ot the very happy men over the great showing made liv his ward yes terday. Mr Dunphv was principally interested in getting up the out-door meeting of last Friday night, which proved so successful. The platform from which the speeches were deliv ered was decorated bv him. 'Ihe whiskey Ihat was captured by the police yesterday in a vacant tene ment on Spring street was the prop erty of one of tne republican candi dates. Last evening some- men called at Ihe police station lor it. saving thev needed it for a celebration they were getting up tor Mr Durant. The liquor was denied them on the grounds that it would do less harm 111 the custody of the police. 'i lie electors of the htih district meant what t hev said to W illiam Ken nedy M outlay night when they shout ed to him from the street that they would stand by him regardless of the boast that 1 hey were committed to Durant. The lifth district men did nooly. Long may tiiev wave. All the pasters Harry Durant received there did not amount to more than b5. and this was cut down by 50 republican pasters for Kennedy. Some democratic wag, evidently suf fering bitterly from the results of yesterday- a battle, exhibited his feelings in a significant manner on North Mam street this morning. He hung a milk pail on a telegraph pole, labelling it with this inscription: "Four years more of the full dinner pail," and in side the pail he placed a bladder, sig nifyine that the argument furnished through the dinner pad is still all wind. "I expect to hear from Mr Kennedy in the senate," said one of. Water bury s oldest and most respected democrats to a reporter of this paper to-day. "The old time democrats of Naugatuck kand Waterbury like linn as a neighbor and as a man and a per son, who commands the confidence and respoct ot those who are near him cannot be very bad or they would find it out and expose him. Next to Mr Bronson. Mr Kennedy was my choice of the ticket, though, of course I voted for every men on it."- The counting in the fourth ward went along without a hitch until the vote of the republican justices of the peace .was being counted. Then Col onel Doherty. one of the counters, after calling out the name of Attorney Bron son. followed it up with a volley of cus words closing thus, "Did I vote for him." The fact that he unwittiugly did. for who flunks ot the justices of the peace in a national election, seem ed to worry the colonel a good deal. However, he made a lot of fun lor his lellow counters. Samuel L. Bronson will not be the next governor of Connecticut, but that is something the people of this town cannot be held responsible lor. When Mr Bronson spoke here he said that when he should look over the returns he would be able to tell what it was worth to have been born in Water bury. All right, Mr Bronson. Look at them and satisfy yourself that we sent you out of the city of your birth on horseback and if the democrats in other towns allowed vou to be dis placed by McLean that was a matter we had nothing to do with. One of the amusing features of the evening, exciting as it was. was the portly form of John B. Wells stand ing near Cone's corner with Old Glory wrapped around him. An admiring crowd of republicans stood around him but Wells was looking over them His optics were in quest of a -friend whom he was to carry home on his back as the result of a wager. Weils was so confident that McKinley would win that he would wager to take his friend to Watertown on his back- The wager will be carried out some even ing this week. If there is a man in Waterbury who feels like getting out of the republican camp, that man is Attorney F. M. Peatsley. He .was whipped by his own party, and on a day, too, when oue would think that the people would not stop to waste time getting square with an enemy. Of course, he was pitted against an extremely popular inam At torney Guilfoile. but ven so. the re sult of the. other eleetions shows that the man .who nominated him did not want to see him elected. We are'not sorry that Mr Peasley didn't get there, still" we are free to state that, so far as we know; he is a tolerably good fel low and there appears 110 reason why the party he is associated with should make a foot ball of him. , George Lilley owes his success at the polls to his attack upon Perry Morris and town officials in general and now that he has got an office him self the public will be curious to see how he will use it and If he will Save as many friends a year hence as he lias to-dav. 'We have no desire to predict tiatl things for our neighbor, Mr Lilley.. but ;fter be spends a few years in" politics -he -will find that it is quite a difficult thing to please -everybody and do what's right and that'whHe-'atnated by the very best motives for the; puolic good -men .will spring up . here and there- who will charge him with acting from sordid motives as readily as he has hurled similar insinuations .-at - Perry ' Morris and others.- - - . ; sn j , , , will m, ra 139: Latest Returns Maka Election of McKinley Certain.

HEALTH VALUE OF VEGETABLES A diet of nothing but celery is said bv some physicians to be ;i sure cine for both rheumatism and neuralgia. Free us of tins vegetable is always recommended to rheumatic patients. Halved potatoes are diu'esled more ensdv than boiled potatoes, and should therefore be preferred bv dyspeptics. In caH:w of anemia, cabbages and S'linnch are distinctly benefrciul. Spin ach is also almost as valuable as liilna water in its effect on the kidney-. Beets and turnips keep the blood per,' and improve i!ie appetite. Tomatoes are thought m India to bi a preventive of cholera. Like endivrs and watercress, they stimulate the healthy action of the liver. .Inst after the battle ot Fort Donel son. General ('rant is said K have tel egraphed to Washington that he would not permit ihe army to move till fortv wagon loads on onions that had been promised him should arrive. Onions are essential to the armv mess, to make pork or beef palatable. But they are also an admirable cure tor sleeplessness and indigestion every where. Garlic, leeks and olives stimulate the circulation of the blood. Too much meat and too few vegeta bles make up the average diet. Health depends ou continuous variety. Washington Star.

A Parisian paper relates the follow ing story of a contest in boasting winch, it says, took place between artists of Marseilles. It should be ex plained that . Parisian writers always put their "lad talk ' into the mouths of Marseilles people.

Thcmas Kelly Says Now Is Watcr bury's Tune to Jump in and Get It Raising Wigwam Dam AVill Not Give Us More Water Unless It Rains Enough to Fill It Up. 'l liouias Kelly was about town to daj feeling quite happy over the re election of his old friend McKinley, but somewhat despondent on account of the condition of the water supply. He thinks the city is making a grave mistake in starting out to spend $100, 000 on the Branch water supply and then have to wait for rain, to fill It up, and takes the ground that it would lie much wiser to put out twice' that amount, if necessary,-In getting hold of Bantam lake and let the water run from there into the Branch. We have got. to come to it, Mr Kelly says, stud if the city of Waterburv allows other parties to tap Bantam lake ahead of us. those who will be responsible for it will never forgive themselves for the blunder. He thought the city officials took this water question too easy, any way, and wanted to know why' they did not see what was coming last ear and take steps to avert a water famine, such as we r.re now face to face with. Mr Kelly was informed that a republican administration had charge, of those matters last season, and 1 hey were more concerned as to how they could fool the people into the no- . tion ihat they were running the city cheaper than (he democrats could and that knowing that to Take hold of a problem like this would spoil their game, they actually neglected the wa ter question and in consequence the public is now in a quandary to know what to do for water. This did not. sound just right upon Kelly's ear drums and he got out of the way with out offering n reply, giving as an ex cuse for Ins hastv retreat that some one was waiting for him at his office and that, he was a little later than usonl m getting around this morn?n and had no time to discuss such mat ters. 1 STANDARD OIL DIVIDEND.
