The Evening Democrat is now locat ed In Its new building, 71-73 Grand street, first door from Bank street. . , CITY NEWS, The board of finance will hold an ad journed meeting this evening at 5 o'clock. At the meeting of Anchor lodge, X.E. O. P., to-morrow night the election of officers will take place. Miss Julia Walsh, of 1,052 South Main street entertained a party of friends from Jiew Haven yesterday. . The board of aldermen will meet to-night for the purpose of completing their labors on the annual appropria tions. Mr and Mrs George Deane of Cherry street are receiving congratulations from their friends upon the birth of a boy to them Saturday evening. Judge George W. Wheeler, of the superior court, has overruled the mo tion to stt aside the verdict in the Par sons bank case. This was at the re quest of counsel engaged on both sides of the suit. In the district court this morning Judge Bradstreet allowed that the at tachment in the suit of McDonald against Gagain may be dissolved when the defendant shall have furnished a bond of $1,500, wTiIch is ?D0O over the amount sued for. The ice on some of the ponds is yet hardly strong enough to bear one up. Saturday evening a small boy, aged about 7 years, while skating on Griggs pond, broke through the ice and came near being drowned, his rescue being effected only after considerable trou ble. There was no city court this morn ing, not even a Sunday "drunk" being arrested yesterday. Things look as though those who are accustomed to make business for the city are getting square with the liquor dealers for their intention not to give away "presents" this Christmas. However, everybody seems to be doing business these days except the city court. The children of St Thomas's parish will be given a great treat Christmas day. The clergymen of the parish, Fathers Crowley and Kennedy, win have the basement dressed up in gay colors and in the center a great Christ inas tree, which the parishioners are invited to dress with toys. All tns children of the parish will be invited to this unusual treat. The new organ for St Thomas's church, for the purchase of which the recent fair was held, will be com pleted next Sunday, it is expected, or at the latest for Christmas day. Spe cial musical numbers will be rendered on that occasion besides the regular service, and the organ will be assisted by an orchestra. So that St Thomas's will be quite as attractive on that day as any of the other Catholic churches. The Meriden railroad, wnere it joins the private railroad of the Benedict & Burnham company, was discovered on lire last evening by people passing in that vicinity. A still alarm was sent to the Leavenworth street en gine house and the chemical engine, was dispatched to the scene.

The horse tore up Grand street at a terrmc gait and turned down Leavenworth street, barely missing several dump carts belonging to Contractor William McGrath.!- The. slippery pavement on West Main street opposite the City hall came near causing serious, conse quences, but It was there the fun be gan.- Contractor McGrath undertook; to catch the noise; so aid tne assist ant clerk of the district court, William Gillette, but neither of them succeed ed. Further on' Constable Donahue tried his hand and failed, x Then some one dashed, out of the City hall and the horse turned as though It would dash across the green, it just "barely missed one of Lunny's hacks. Up North Main street it flew, a dozen men now in its trail,' and the lines flying In the wind. The horse made a cort screw ' track until opposite the Carrie Welton fountain, and here Constable E. R.
