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. W ell. bring on the
work, the" high wages, the full dinner
pails and all the other good things
our friends have been promising us

Al
the past few week m case they should
receive a new lease of power auu no
doubt many will soon forget all about
this "cruel war' m which so many
people were slaughtered who dared
to stand up for what they believed to
be for the best interest of the country
in spite of the influence the silver
tougued orators and the work of Ihe
fellows who got in their work through
the agency of men acting for the trusts
and combines and capitalists in tins
country cud Europe.
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. Here
they are:

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

The superior court resumed tha
hearing of civil business to-day, with
the calling of the case of Morris Hem
ingway against "W iliiam B. Morris and
his wife, Jennie F. The plaintiff lives
111 New Ilaveu and the defendants in
Watertown. 'I hey had mutual inter
est 111 a piece of properly 111 Wolcott
and. it is alleged, the plaintiff loaned
Mrs Morris V5.0OO. with vrhlch to build
a house on thia property ou condition
that she was to pav back $300 the first
year aud $500 Ihe second yea", the
balance to lie p.aid within certain
period. This the plaintiff alleges the
defendant failed to do. Judges Cole
and Bradslreet represented the plain
tiff and Attorney Williams of Derby
the defendant'. The case was before
the jurv at press hour and was expect,
cd to last all dav. The cases of Frank
N. IJeillv .TJ-ainsr Thomas P. Manners.
John J. O'Neill, administrator, against
John W. Gnffnev Co. were settled
out of court. The case of E. L. Mo
loney against C. F. Downey is expect
ed to be put on to-morrow morning.
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.

Water Enough There to Supply

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.

and that, he was a little later than
