WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2 V 1900. -
I)ick CrcUer and his bosom friend,
Toni Plait. , were to visit Waterbury
next summer, and 'were given a ride
around our city of brass, and during
their tour Hamilton park was point
ed out to them, wouldn't they have a
grand old laugh at our city govern
ment? Why, to think that taxpayers
would put men in office who would
treat such a magnificent gift as Ham
ilton park in the manner they have,
would put both of the above named
gcutlemen into convulsions. And if
on their way back along Broadway,
.between Silver and Welton streets,
they decided they would like to see
Washington hill, and asked the driver
to point out the route they must take
to get there, it surely would be a case
of "What kind of farmers run the city
of "Waterbury, any way?" Aud who
would blame them? No connecting
street between Welton and Silver
streets and the Hill. 'Well, we don't
know what either gentlemen would
think, but we do know that if they
drank some of our Tea they would de
clare it the best they every drank in all
their travels. We think both would buy
some to take Home, and jr tney u.;.
they would get four hnrs of the best
Soap with every pound, and our 24c
Butter would just tickle their palates.
They might have no use for politicians
but they'd always remember

CITY NEWS.
The county commissioners will be
at the court house to-morrow and Fri
day to receive money for licenses is
sued. The case of Nicola Calabrese vs Con
tractor McManns for $500. damages
was still hefore the district court to
day. This makes the third day of
trial.
lr C. Art Ward has bought the
house No 42 North Willow street and
will utilize it as a Keeley cure institu
tion. The house was owned by Judge
E. F. Cole. ,
Mr Minnigh, the guide, will graphi
cally portray, the, movements of the
two great armies at Gettysburg, and
the story of General Lee's invasion, at
City, hall next Monday and Tuesday
evenings. The three days' fighting aud
the subsequent retreat of the Confed
erates across the Potomac becomes a
very vivid tiling under his recital.
From the first until the closing chapter
at the "Bloody Angle," where Picket
struck the Union line, the story is one
of the deepest interest.
The Italian United societies held an
important business meeting last Sun
day in G. A. K, hall, electing the fol

The residents of Oakville celebrated
the completion of the trolley line to
that place last night by a dance aud
reception in the vacant pin shop build
ing. Supper was served in one of the
large side rooms. It was the inten
tion of the committee to have a dis
play of fireworks, but the weather
was not just right for it, and this part
of the program was abandoned.
Crowds of people went up there from
all parts of the city, so that it might
be said that Oakville never before en
tertained so many visitors on the same
nigh.
Mrs Gerou of Phoenix avenue, who
had furniture and silverware stored in
an attic in that street is now minus
all her silverware and various other
articles, some one having entered the
place and carried away almost every
thing of any value that was stored
there. While it is not known just
When the things were taken still it is
thought that they must have been car
ried away during the present week,
for they were all there a few days ago
and on one except a person well ac
quainted with the building could have
discovered them any way. They were
not mi.ssed until this morning.
Work on the big dam at the head of
Belieview lake is being rapidly xushed
to completion, though it is thought
that there will not be a chance to put
on the coping before the bad weather
comes around. It is a very line piece of
masonry work and -reflects great cred
it on the engineer aud everybody else
who has had anything to do with it.
It is 275 feet long; 35 feet above the
bed of the river and 21 feet under
ground. It is about 30 feet wide at the
base aud tapers oft until it reaches a
width of Ave feet at the top. It is
built of rough stone and cement and
aside from this it is practically the
same in appearance, though consider
ably smaller, as the dam at the Wig
wam reservoir, which is constructed
of quarried stone. The dam belongs
to the Chases and is intended to save
water there for their mills on North
Main street.
The local Italians will give an en
tertainment in City hall to-morrow
night for the benefit of the Galveston
sufferers. "Lazzaro II Mandriauo," a
historical drama in one prologue and
three acts by Bonchardy, will lie
staged with this cast: L. Cipriano, S.
Ricciardi, Emma Yivanti, P. A. Laur
ino, L. D. Ambrosio, V. Guarani. M.
Tessitore and N. Jamel. The scene is
laid in Florence. Louis Bertoli is di
rector and Joseph Bauby. manager.
The committee is composed of A. T.
D'Audrea. M. D.'Ambrosio, E. Quan
drini, N. Carosillo, C. Martone. P. Bau
by, Julius .Tanetta, S. Chiaranionte and
G. Sautulli. There will be a cake
walk, athletic games, juggling and
singing by American gjrls at intervals,
with the latest English songs. This is
a work of charity and those having it
in hand deserve to be encouraged, and
it is hoped that they -will have a full
house.
The many friends of Donato Meo
enter a general denial to the story that
he attacked the Irish people Jn' his
address at City hall during the, cam
paign just closed." ' They claim', he , was
misrepresented and that what he did
say was twisted and turned to suit
the writer's convenience or ideas.
George Francolini, the Italian inter
preter, was a caller at the Democrat
office to-day and he claimed that Meo
had lost a good share of his business
because of the reports printed about
him and he said it was not right or
just. He was present at that meeting
himself and so were many others of
his friends and they all say that Meo
did not use the expressions attributed
to him. They claim that what he did
say, perhaps not expressed in the best
of English, was that the Italians
should emulate the Irish in politics.
Mr. Francolini is orgapizing.a. demo-;
cratic club and he claims that he has
no interest in Meo further than that
he would like to see hini righted as to
the remarks made by him.
Mrs Patrick Crowley, an old and re
spected resident of this place, died at
her'hoineOn Pearl street a few min
utes before G o'clock, Monday evening.
For the past four weeks she has been
afflicted with a complication of dis
eases, but it was not until Sunday
night that she became confined to her

years ago, coming to Seymour at that
tinme. She was born in Ireland and
when a girl of about eighteen years
came with her family to this country.
Her maiden name "was Julia McCar
thy. During, her extended residence
here she became connected with St
Augustine's church, among the mem
bers of which she was an earnest and
faithful worker. However, the "past
few years her advanced age had com
pelled her to abandon In part this en
thusiastic work. She r leaves a hus,

ing from Peter Kenny, the young man
whom it was reported yesterday was
killed in the Philippine Islands. The
letter vras written October 12. In his
note he speaks of a Mr Madden, who
he says was reported killed in the Wa
terbury papers, but which is false, he
says. Mr Daly is Kenny's cousin, and
called in to see if anything could be
told him regarding the item. He
thinks Jt is untrue. .
