WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY; DECEMBER 5, 19G0.
-IF- VTe only had Bantam lake secured to furnish us with water, our .citizens wmiUl ha vd nrt fpnr nf a water famine for the next fifty-two years." We could then rest contented. . ' - IF - Jewelry or Liberty streets were ex tended to Bank street, wouldn't the people help a certain rooster to crow and be contented? , ,, IF . - the summer of 1901 arrives on time, and Waterbury has a pleasure park for its citizens, how the people will rejoice. But if the said park is out of sight, as it is at the present time, they won't feel so contented. IF we don't get the new police signal sys tem, every official who votes against it should be arrested at the very first op portunity; and get a hard chuckling and clubbing just to let them see what the "cops ' are compelled to go through: then may be thay would vote for it and be contented. IF you think a 32-mill city and school tax is enough during the McKlnley pros perity, just raise a "holler" and possi bly they will make it more Just to" have you contented. IF the lady of the house doesn't give you good, clean, palatable tea and coffee to drink, just make her come out of that dream. Inform her WE sell the nice tasting tea. the fresh roasted, delicious morning coffee, and we also sell butter, that hasn't an equal in the city ii sweetness or pleasantness; and surely the Drice is risrht.

CITY NEWS. The carpenters "and Joiners will hold a special meeting this evening.. Busi ness of importance. Mrs A. Collins, of Columbia, is en joying a short visit with Mrs Frank Seaman, of Wolcott street. The committee on consolidation of the city and town will meet this even ing in the office of Kellogg & Kellogg. John, the 5 years ank3 months old son of Mr and Mrs John Murray of 98 Park avenue, died this morning. The funeral will take place to-morrow af ternoon, with interment in Calvary cemetery. Letters of administration were to day granted to Sarah Merrill, on the estate of her late husband, Charles L. Merrill. Deputy Sheriff William I'arm lee of Ansonia was appointed co-administrator. The storm last evening apparently cooled off the evil tendencies of those who make business for the city court, because there were no arrests made, and -consequently no need for Judge Burpee to sit this morning The following list of unclaimed let ters await claimants at the postoffice: -Mrs William Andrews. Mrs J. Bnrgus, Mrs Mary Clark. C. (J. Derby 2, Mrs Jeanuette DeYer, Mrs B. Hogan, Mrs Nellie Hardy, Mrs Mary Johnson, Gil bert Kix, Harry Walker. The officers of the Second regiment, C. X. G., at a recent meeting, by a unanimous vote tendered the hearty thanks of ths regiment to its friends who donated prizes on the occasion of the annual rifle tournament of the regi ment, held in- September. George II. Brouson, guardian over Louise Erwin, formerly of Waterville, but now of Xew Haven, resigned bis guardianship in the probate court to day and settled up his account with his ward. TTntil Miss Erwin chooses another guardian her interest will be looked after by Attorney Smith of Xew Haven. 1 Constable' ATilliam 'M. Gillette was at large throughout -Litchfield county to-day summoning the jury for the criminal term of the district court, which resumes next Tuesday. It is not expected there will be much busi ness for the jury. There are only a few cases and Prosecutor Bronson is of the opinion that the most of theiu will be disposed of without trial. Thomas Gallagher of 257 Bishop street, while passing up Cooke street about 0 o'clock last evening, barely escaped serious injury. The wind was blowing a gale at the time and small limbs of trees were being lopped at a great rate. As he was turning into Cooke street from iirove a large limb of a tree dropped just a foot or two behind him. Had it . struck Hi m he would have been severely injured. The matter of a new name for the riauk road was brought up at the meeting of the board of public works yesterday afternoon, but nothing was done about it. The name Hamilton avenue was suggested, but it was thought that on account of the Hamil ton park abutting the street this might result in a confusion of names and it was decided to let the matter stand for the present. Some people think it ought to be named after the Porter family, but if this should be done we would have two streets of the same name in Waterbury, and that would never do. The Hellmann Brewing Co has al ready received several applications for space in its' new cold storage ware house, which will be completed in the early spring. One local concern is ar ranging to have a room constructed in the warehouse for its own special re quirements. The Hellmann company invites commission men and dealers in perishable goods generally to select space before the spring opens. The Baker Artesian Well Co of Providence began Monday last the sinking of a well larger than any on the company's premises. This will form part of the water supply for the company's ice plant. Thomas . Delowry, the. contractor, will make another attempt to rid his building on the corner of Spencer ave nue and Xorth Main street, of B. Seoo pino, an Italian fruit dealer. A few weeks ago Delowry's summary process case against Scoopino was decided against himself, with costs, owing to a flaw in the process of serving the writ. Scoopino claims to have a lease of the premises and Delowry claims he has not. Delowry can get more rent for the place now than when he rented it to Scoopino. The case was assigned this morning at bar meeting in the city court for trial to-morrow afternoon. The tidings of the settlement of the controversy of the Dady sewerage con tract in Havana Was gladness to Mr Dady's friends in this city. John Mori. arty of the Waterbury Furniture Co is one of these and he has followed the controversy from its inception The contract was for one million dol lars in Spanish currency, the contract having been awarded Mr Dady by the Spanish government before the war. He was to build sawers through Ha vana. After the war Mr Dady's polit ical set set the machinery of the gov ernment in operation against him, but allowed that he had an enuity in the work worth $500,000. Though Mr Dady is a big republican politician in Brooklyn he was nbt big enough to pull against his enemies. However, he has been. paid his equity in the work and for this ' his friends are pleased. "Mr Dady is well known to a number of people in this city. Thomas Kelly's, interview on howio increase the city's, income without add ing to the tax bills of property owners, published in Monday night's Democrat, has occasioned a good deal of talk of one kind and another, but nothing that came, to 0ur "ears pleased so" well as the following from a -well known shoe maker: ' "Kelly knows good laws from bad ones at sight, -He; spent some time in the good old democratic state of Georgia, and yrhile there ' he saw an equitable -adjustment of the-1 vexed question of taxation, and would like to see the same system introduced into Waterbury, But what is he doing" to bring about such a Condition of affairs? Isn't this the same manvwho has al ways stood by McKlnley and all the' other, republican nabobs who are back of the trusts and combines that are fast pushing the poor man to the wall? If Mr Kelly desires the same kind of laws 'for Waterbury that they have at Atlanta; he should begin the reform movement by changing his . polities. He'll never see the poor man get a fair show, while the party he belongs to is in power.'1 Aha, Kelly, what do you think of that? ' Thomas Shannahan, aged 4 years, another of the -Shannahan -children -on Baldwin street,--died this mdrning and was buried 'this afternoon.-::T -; : Michael J.

The Vienna Papers Touch the Presi- ' -. dent's Chinese Policy. t Vienna, Dec 5 The papers here generally criticise the United States Chinese policy as outlined . in Presi-; dent McKinley's message to Congress.' While admitting the great influence Washington has exercised with the European powers the official Fremden blatt complains that the United States appea'i-s unable to compensate individ ual foreigners for infringement of their rights, while the Xeues Weiner Tag blatt touching on the same subject, asks if President McKlnley .showed the same solicitude in the case Of the Austro-Hungarians who lost their money, health and lives in the United States, as he now shows with refer ence to Austro-Hungarians arrested for evading military service.
