Mr Brett read the re iport of the committee appointed to 'report regarding the acceptance of cer- follows: 'To the TnWtnra nf tho Tna-n nf Wn- terbury: . "The undersigned, a committee ap pointed by you at the annual town meeting held October 8, 1900, to inves tigate and report upon the advisability of accepting certain proposed highways in this town as set forth and asked for in the call of the annual town meeting would respectfully report that they have, attended the duty assigned J theiu, and have visited and investigat ed into each and every one of the pro posed highways which have been asked to be accepted. Your commit tee would report after such investiga-' tion and consideration or the several matters before it in relation to the same as if olio ws: "In the matter of acceptance of streets at Morningside, so called, your committee would recommend as fol lows: That the layout of Windsor street, so called, from the Watertown road to the Bunker Hill road, be ac cepted as per plan and descriptions submitted herewith; width of said street to be tifty feet. "That the layout -of Marion avenue, from Windsor street to Ray street, be accepted as per plan and description furnished and ou tile; width of said avenue to be fifty feet. "That the layout of Morningside avenue, from the Watertown read to Windsor street, be accepted a9 pet plan and description furnished and on file: width of same to be fifty feet; rpon condition that the parties inter ested construct or cause to be con structed, to the acceptance of the board of selectmen, two catch basins with proper connections with culvert in Watertown road at the junction of said Moniingilde avenue and said Wa tertown read at points to be designat ed by the board of selectmen. "Your committee would recommend that in the matter of acceptance of Maynard street, that action at the present time be deferred for the rea son that said proposed street lias no adequate outlet. "In the matter of layout of Carter avenue, from Grndview nvenue to the city line, your committee would rec ommend that action be deferred until such time as the city of Waterbury shall lay out and accept said proposed Carter avenue, from the Watertown road to the city line, so that it will connect with that portion of Carter .ivence which is asked to be accepted in the annual call. "In the matter of the acceptance of certain proposed highways at Newton Heights, so called, namely Maplewood street. Clematis avenue, from Oakwood to Sunerior avenre, Xewton avenue and Byron street, your committee would report that, in tTieir opinion, the said avenues and streets have not been jrraded or worked Into such condition as would warrant the committee in recommending the acceptance of same. Action in these matters should be deferred until some future time when the streets and avenues are worked and graded into better condi tion. In the matter cf acceptance of hiehways at Fort Hill park, Water- Tille, the committee would recommend that Fort Full avenue, from Main street, Waierville. to Downes street, be accepted as per plan and descrip tion furnished and on file; width of the said avenue to be-forty feet. That Downes street, from Shafter street to ' Sampson street, be accepted as per plan ana description furnished and on file, width of same to be forty feet, provided that the angle at junction of said street and Fort Hill avenue be dispensed with and a circular corner be made in place of same, and the angle to be cut off to the depth of twenty feet at point of intersection; and provided further that George L. Jenks place a proper railing on said Downes street at such points as may be designated by the board of select- - men. . "That Sampson street, from Downes . street to Shafter street, and Shafter street, from Sampson street to Downes fftreet,. be accepted as per plans ana descriptions furnished and now on file width of said streets to be forty feet; wftrldofl ' - iriT' r il T. TTlra of, all . . 1 i . . i proper railing on . each of said pro posed streets at such points as may be designated by the board of selectmen. "In the matter of acceptance of Spring, Prospect and Chestnut . streets in the Waterv;ille district, your com mittee would, recommend that action on the same be deferred for the pres erst It would be unwise and too cost ly for the town to accept these streets In their present condition. In the, "matter of Eden street. Btet -leading off from Chapel street iriSimonsvllle district, your commit tee "finds that there is no outlet, or pro- hsed outlet, to this proposed street fid for said reason would recommend Lat action in this matter be deferred for the present. . "All .of which is respectfully Bub- rmitted, November 8, 1900. "Signed:' -"MORTIMER DORA!. "WILLIAM T. DISLET. "GEORGE A. BOTTGHTOJT, " - "EDWARD G. KILDUFF, . , , ' "GEORGE TRACT, i "MORTIMER HEFFERNAN." ; The report was unanimously adopt ed. ' . Patrick Holohan was about to speak npon certain resolutions -which he thought should receive attention, but dome one moved to adjourn and the question was put and carried, and that was the end of it.- GENEEAL WHEELfiR'S OPINION. The American People Love Their God and Their Flag. Montgomery, Ala, Nor 0. General Wheeler said yesterday of the .elec tion:. "I did not go to Decautur to hear the returns Tuesday night. I do not like to go to funerals, and. I felt it and knew that Mr MeKlnley would be overwhelmingly re-elected. , :TJiere ace two things the' American people reverences-first, their God and, sec ond, their flag. A word against either trill bring down, their condemnation. There never was a president defeated for election' wh had conducted a sue cemfttl war.

About- half a dozen - fellows who whooped it up for the republicans be fore election and' clinched . things so fur as they could by working fof them from ti o'clock In the morning until the gong at the Couneetieut Lighting and Power company's jant . called time at 5 o'clock in the afternoon last Tuesday, are about town now talking harmony and lookiag for recruits for their clubs so that they may have a bigger pull than ever when the next election comes around.. There isn't anything new In this, but in the opin ion of some people it is rather soon for these people, after making a public ex hibition of their political treachery, to start out to work reforms in the party they turned thelF backs upon during the recent contest: This business of con ducting alleged democratic clubs and then using the clubs against the dem ocratic party on election day, has ben worked to death and it is doubtful if they will ever cut as much of a swath iu Waterbury again as they nre in the past. If reformation is needed in the democratic camp in Waterbury the jokers who assisted the enemy in the great battle for Bryan and the masses are not the ones the party should trust to bring it about. The party is all right, but many who profess to belong to it are no good, and stand much more in need of reformation, that is, provid ed they want to be democrats, than the party does. That's the situation exactly and those "reformers" needn't think that they can fool the people all tho time. DETAILS OF BOER DEFEAT. Several Small Engagements Reported By Lord Roberts. London, Nov 9. Lord Roberts, tele graphing from Johannesburg under date of November 8, gives details of the defeat of the Boers in an engage ment three miles south of Bothavllle, in which twentv-thrce of the enemy were killed, thirty wouuded and 100 taken prisoners, while seven guns were captured by the British. The British lost three olilcers and three men. Lord Roberts says in his dis patch: "Colonel Le Oallais was heavily en gaged for live hours with 1,000 Boers. Knox reinforced him and completely defeated the Boers. De Wet and Steyn with the Boers left in great haste and were pursued some miles to the south east. The enemy broke up into small parties. LeGallais was amone the killed. Steyn's secretary, De Villiers, was wounded and captured." Lord Roberts also reports a number of small affairs, the most important of which was an engagement fought No vember 0 by Smith Dorrlen. south of Dalmanutha, which resulted in the Boers beinj driven to the east of the Komati river. SECRETARY ROOT'S JOURNEY. A Trip to Cuba, but the Keasons Are Not Given. New York. Nov 9. Secretary, Root v.i going to Cuba for his health, says a special to the Tribuue from Washing ton. More than this he has not cou- lided to his closest official associates. He will sail from New York on Sat urday and will be accompanied by his son. Any political object that the secre tary of war could have in visiting Cu ba at the present time, when the con stitutional convention of the islanders has Just assembled, is too obscure for the war department officials to solve, and they are at a loss to understand why a man in Secretary Root's state of health should risk the Cuban cli mate at this time of the year, when malarial influences are at their height. SUNDAY NIGHT CONCERT. "Aunt Hannah" Company at Jacques Opera House. The members of the "Aunt Hannah" company will give a grand concert on Sunday evening at the Jacques, aud those who have attended any of the performances thus far given by the company know that this means a rare treat. Seldom has any company ap pearing at the Jacques presented a larger or better array of singers, and all of them will contribute to the pro gram on Sunday evening. Solos, duets. o.uartettes and concerted numbers will be offered, and it is probable that sev eral sketches will be put on. Miss Florence Evans, the genial "Aunt Han nah" of the play, will probably pre sent a sketch In which she will appear in her quaint and extraordinary make up. The program as a whole will cer tainly be a very entertaining one, and undoubtedly the Jacques - will be crowded on Sunday evening. Seats will go on sale to-morrow at the regu lar evening scale of prices. PUTNAM'S STRANGE SuidDE. Putnam, Conn, Nov 0. J. F.
