rWATERBURY ; EVE1NTING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1900.
r Is the very first, item on tbe list of ar ticles which had that imposition called r:ir tax taken off it, but the l'Oe per pound on tea still remains. "Well, that's pretty . work for the politician; yon can readily see what kind of men have been sent to Washington. Just reflect on this matter. Keeping a duty of 10 cents per pound on tea, an article which Is a necessity (providing you wish to enjov good health and a long and happy life) and taking the tax oft a drink (beer), which is a costly luxury and in many instances raises ructions and causes manv a sore "head and black eye, and sometimes is the direct cause of spending a thirty or sixty days' va cation in jail or town house. Say, the politicians who made the above blun der virtually passed a law the other day whereby the soldiers are deprived of their beer, yet the same fellows took the tax off. the "stuff.". For pity sake are they insane? Well, we sent the lawmakers over to Washington and we must abide by their decision. Remem ber, it doesn't matter whether they leave the tax on Tea or not: we will look after our patrons' welfare aud Bee they get the good quality eycry time.

Miller. The lodge will undoubtedly turn out in a body to. attend the funeral. . . Court Martin Hellmann, F. of A., will hold a special meeting in Forest ers' reading rooms to-night at S o'clock for tlie purpose of talcing action on the death of their late brother, Thomas Miller. Every member is re quested to be present. A reception and dance will be ac corded to-night to the canvassers who worked so zealously a short while since for the success of the fair of the Siinonsville Athletic club. The recep tion will be held in the rooms of the Simousvllle Social club and is an in vitation affair, consequently those who attend may he assured of haviug an enjoyable time. Edward "Malouey, the trolley car conductor, was hunting yesterday, with his friend, .Tames Marctiand, and captured a lot of game. The held of their operations was in the vicinity of Watertown which; to some extent, ex plains the fulluess of their game bag. They shot, thirteen squirrels and three rabbits, besides a few birds, though their fellow employes say they bought the latter. Everybody except one. was so busy last evening buying Christmas gifts that one did not have time to break the law so that there was no city court this morning. The exceptional case became too exhuberant and danced on his own hat on South Main street. Ho was such a good fellow and it being his first time to get Into the clutches of the law that. Chief Egan let him go home when he sobered up. To-night at the Salvation army hall, the first meeting will be held in con nection w.Ji the visit of Staff Captain Agnes McKenzie to Waterbury. Ad mission will be free to all these meet ings, and in connection with the same a Sile of work will be neld. A variety of articles have been given or made, suitable for Christmas presents, aud before and after the meeting the same will be on sale at reasonable prices. Coffee and cake will also be served. The cold weather for the past week or so has covered the different ponds iu all parts of the city wltii a sheet of ice capable of withstanding the weight of a few hundred or more skaters. John D's and the East Brass Mill ponds have already been tested by lovers of skating and been found in a safe and excellent condition, the ice being exceptionally smooth. The Manhan rink is also in excellent con ditio::. McClure's Magazine for January will contain the first installment in the Memoirs of Clara Morris, entitled "Recollections of the Stage and Its People." This chapter describes the famous actress' first appearance before a New York audience and tells vividly of all the trials and triumphs on that crucial occasion. Apart from its senti mental value as the autobiographical work of our greatest actress, the dra matic intensity of the writing gives to the article a literary charm worthy of its high historic Interest. The grabbing prowlers who have been working in Waterbury for some time past, took it into their heads to give the houses a rest and turn their attention towards the dance hall, thinking, no doubt, they would fare better in the search for wearing ma terial. So on, one night this week they called at a hall in the center and succeeded in carrying away several pairs of ladies' gloves, as well as a number of hat pins. They may have carried away more valuable goods, but we have not hard of it. The gang seem to like this city for they are making -quite a stay. At a meeting of the town school board last night it was voted that the committeemen of the Town Plot and Mill Piain districts be authorized to ap-. point one additional teacher in their districts. The -appointment of a teacher in the Park Road district was confirmed. It was decided to let the matter of change of text books stand until next year and devote the money that would bai. to be spent la this way to. furnishing additional teachers. The Oronoke school district recom mended the appointment of Frank G. Schinitz as tax collector, to succeed J. Ji Lyons, resigned, but it was decided to defer action on the matter until it has been determined what shall be done in reference to taxes. At the last annual meeting the district voted to lay a five mill tax, but the district has been divided since which will ne cessitate some understanding regard ing tne collection ana disposal of taxes. Charles Barnes, the livery keeper. told a story last evening of an encount er with .a black snake. Mr Barnes was fishing on Chestnut Hill reservoir when a hugh black monster poked its head up -In front of his boat in a menacing attiture. v Mr Barnes and his- fellow fishermen saw at once that the . monster was only an unusually large.- black snake., but nevertheless they determined to dispatch it and rowed toward it tvith that intention Tlie snake, seeing them approach, dis appeared and was hot-seen again until the., fishermen were tying up their ap paratus This' time it undertook to cross the road that divides the reser voir' and then; a battle, took place With stones and fishing rods the snake was assailed, better weapons lacking. The. -odds of a. longer lifetime were in favor of the snake until one of the fishermen threw his bait net around ltjand'the rest 'was easy. The fight lasted'Qfteen minutes. -.Union "Rescue mission. ; 217 South Main" street; Gospel meetings each evening at 7:45: Sunday evening ser vice will be addressed by R. M.

A new feature iu the way'of surprise parties took place at the home.of Miss Kitty Bergin of Bergin street last even ing. Miss Bergin was industriously engaged on that most perplexing ques tion, what would she give her friends as Christmas gifts, when a number of them entered dressed in all manner of costumes, and the rest of the evening was devoted to dancing and . amuse ment The selectmen would like to find the relatives of one William Chesnar, who is now in Middletown asylum. Chesnar is sinking rapidly,' so the selectmen have been notified, and will not live many more days. It will be remembered that Chesnar was the man who three or four years ago was found late one night on- the top of the horse at the Carry Welton fountain. He was arrested and on examination was found to be insane. Mrs Candace C. Biackman of West Side hill has entered suit against - the town of Plymouth and its selectmen. Messrs Burke and Goodman, for $5W damages. Mrs Biackman owns a road roller and last summer she rented'-it to C. L. Tryon & Son of Meridcn, -who wore build ng a state road in Plymouth. The selectmen guaranteed payment for the use of the road roller, and the con tractor having become a bankrupt is therefore unable to pay. Hence the suit against the town and its select men.
