Bank St, Waterbury. 1 C-KSaiC-022? POLICE COURT DOINGS The Wratch Stealing Case W as Heard ,- , , This Morning. ..- City court this morning' was long, tedious, hot and suffocating. The suspension of work in many of the fac tories tended .to crowd tlie room so that standing room was at a. premium. The attraction was the five charges of theft of watches from the New Eng land. Watch factory by one of the em ployes, Samuel Berg. The state was assisted in the prosecution by Attor ney Carniody, and the accused was de feuded by Attorney Russell. John Mc- Keever, foreman of the finishing de partment of the factory from w,hich the watches were stolen testified to the system adopted in distributing the work among the employes. Each work er has a number which corresponds with the number on the "trial back" of tlie watchf s he is engaged upon. Any number of these trial backs can be procured from a girl in charge. The backs are kept in a cabinet,' which is situatnO in the middle of the room, and it is against llie law of tlie concern for any one but the girl in charge and the foreman to go near this cabinet, which, however, is not kept locked. Tlie principal witnesses for the state were two boy detectives named Eugene Lyons and P.efnard Haas. Lyons tes titied that he -was engaged on tlie case about two weeks flgo and that he went t work in the department in "which P.erg was employed, and had a seat near him. By degrees he got into his confidence, and one day saw him put a watch in his pocket and leave tlie room. Lyons followed tlie man and took him back to the foreman and had him confess to the theft and lour others also. The number of the trial backs of the watches which were stol en corresponded with Berg's number, (ii. About two months ago the first theft was committed. Berg admitted selling tlie watches to Samuel Schner er and Morris Green, Jewelers on South Mail! street for $1 each. All of the watches were in evidence. Though Berg pleaded not guilty, he admitted the theft when he took the stand on his own behalf. ' He said he was for merly employed by the New Haven Clock company, also by the Waterbnry Clock company and had been married for." months. In his argument to the court. Attorney Russell said that Herg should be given as much leniency as any other man. There was something about tlie case he could not under stand. It was admitted in the evi dence for the state, he said, that others had been caught in similar thefts as Berg was charged with, and they were let go. Why, therefore, Mas Berg not given a chance? Was it because of his nationality? The daily newspapers contain stories of big thefts committed every day and the thief is allowed his liberty. Why, then, should not Berg charged with stealing a few cheap watches, be given a chance? Mr Rus sell's eloquence was in vain. His cli ent was found guilty on the complaints and fined ?7 and costs on each. An appeal under a bond of ?250 was taken. Schneerer and Green were then put on trial charged with receiving stolen gootls when they knew the same to be stolen. The trial hael not proceeeled far when the case against Schneerer was nolletl and Green was tleclarcd not guilty. John Morrissey, a car con ductor, charged with non-support, was let go with : warning. Snow In Xebraska. ' OMAHA, Dec. 24. Considerable snow has fallen all over Nebraska.

Brett, M.-D. Russell, Peter Bauby, William RletheT. ' Dated at Waterbury, this 1st day of December, A. D. 1800, . AN AUTONOMY PARTY. Loyau Filipinos at Manila Adopt a f . - Platform. MANILA, Dee. 24. The recently or ganized Autonomy party was launched ot a meeting attended by virtually all the loyal Filipino leaders in Manila. The declaration of principles was read nnd, after some discussion, adopted by a vote of 123, less than half a dozen declining to vote. All signed an indorsement of the platform, including Senor Paterno, one of the most influential of the former insurgent leaders, whose real attitude to ward American authority has been much questioned. The principal, discussion, was with ref erence to the organization of the govern ment of the party. A council of 25 mem bers Was elected, together with an exec utive committee, including Senor Caye tano Arellano, chief justice of the su preme court; Mr. Frank II. Bourne, Senor Arniiosa Frores, u former insur gent general; Senor Florentino Torres, attorney general for . the Philippines; Senor Jose Near, prosecuting attorney, and Senor Tom as del Rosario. The smallest number of votes received by any candidate was SO. Advices brought yesterday by steamer from southern Luzon say that a lieuten ant and CO men of the Ninth United States cavalry attacked a large body of insurgents last Wednesday ueur Guino batau, province of Albay. Alter the bat tle 43 dead insurgents were counted, to gether with many wounded. The only American casualty was -the wounding of a sergeant who was cornered by several rebels and struck in the leg by a bolo. The rebel loss was the heaviest recorded among recent encounters. Tlie e-utting of the wires has delayed the official re port of the engagement. The Philippine commission has ap pointed II. Phelps Whitnnirsh governor and Otto Seherer secretary of the prov ince of Benguet. Thirty-nine priests, 17 of them belong ing in the province of Bulacan, the stron gest of the Tagal provinces, have signed and forwarded to the Philippine commis sion a paper profferim; their submission and loyalty to its authority, adding that the promise is made voluntarily and with out nientul reservation. Judge Taft has replied, welcoming their assistance in the pacification of a people "over whom you will have so great an influence." A detachment of the Sixteenth infan try has captured Bautistu, the head of the Katinuuan society, in northwestern Luzon. A detachment of the Forty-ninth in- fantiy recently attacked a barrio on the Cagayan river, in Isabella province, drove out the insurgents, killing several them, and captured u thousand rounds of ammunition. The Americans also burned the insurgent quarters. The latest reports from Iloilo say that tlie laiuls of 1'auay and Cebiu since the rainy season set m are ceiug rapidly cleared of the enemy and that in a few we'cks the only opposition encountered will be that offered by scattering la- drones.. The Twenty-sixth infantry in Panny and the Forty-fourth in (.'elm are conducting an actively aggressive paign. The American casualties recently been slight. caui have VETERAN'S SUDDEN DEATH. Major Poole Stricken at His Home In Syracuse. SYRACUSE, Dec. 24. Theodore U Poole, United States marshal for the northern district of N("w York state and member of the Fit" ty-founh congress from tlie Onondaga-Madison district from 1S'J4 to 1800, was stricken wi-h upoplcxy yesterday morning at S o'clock as he at tempted to rise from his bed an! died immediately. Major I'oole had been in poor health for several months. During the summer he suffered from an attack of nervous prostration, from winch he recovered suf ficiently to assume in September the ac tive duties of United States marshal, for which he qualified early in July. Major I'oole was born in Elbiidge, Onondaga county, on April Id, 1S40. When 2'J years of age he enlisted as a private in Company I of the One Hun dred and Twenty-second regiment. New York volunteers. When the regiment was mustered into service he was appointed quartermaster sergeant and from that time was successively promoted until the close of the war, when he was discharged with the rank of brevet major. At the battle cf Cold Harbor he was severely wounded, and after several months of suffering at the hospital it became neces sary to amputate his left arm to save his life. Since the war Major Poole had been prominent in politics. He was a Repub lican and occupied the offices of assistant assessor of internal revenue, United States pension agent for the western dis triet of New York. United States con gressman and United States marshal. He was also a prominent O. A. R. man, serving for tee. years as a member of I he council of administration nnd in 18S.12 be ing chosen commander of the department of New York for one term. GARDINER HAD TO GO. Roosevelt Took Prompt Action In Case of Blstrlct Attorney. NEW YORK, Dec. 24. Governor Roosevelt's prompt and summary action in the case of Asa Bird Gardiner was an eyeopener for the Tammany braves. The hearing Saturday at Albany occupied scarcely eight hours, and late in the even ing the. governor announced the removal of Croker's district attorney and the ap pointment of Eugene A. Philbin to suc ceed Colonel Gardiner. Mr. Philbin is the senior partner of the firm of Philbin, Beekuian & Menken. Mr. Beekman. who was a justice of the supreme court, died a few days ago. Mr. Philbin is a member of the Reform club, a Gold Democrat on.l an opponent of Crokerism. He is the opposite of all that Gardiner has repre sented in the political life of the city. When the hearing was ended at 7 o'clock Saturday night, the belief was general that a Case had been made out against Gardiner and that he had been proved guilty of sympathy at least with Chief Devery's open incitement to riot at the recent election. His failure to help Mr. Hammond in the speedy prose cution of election offenders was made so clear that all who heard the testimony felt that there would be a new district attorney named for New Y'ork. The British Lion Roars. LONDON, Dec. 24. The Times, in an editoiial on President McKinley's deci sion to submit the Huy-Pauncefote canal treaty to Great Britain, reproaches hini with "shifting a dangerous responsibili ty" on the British government and says: "The president must bear the responsi bility for any friction that may ensue. The amended treaty is a bargain to which we cannot agree and to which no reasonable American who takes the trou ble to reflect upon our side of the ques tion can expect us to agree. When Sen ator Lodge announces that . Ameiicans expect Europe to 'keep out' of America, he forgets that England is a great North American power and means to remain such, a power. If the nay-Pauncefote treaty is not adopted in a form accepta ble to us, we shall stand quietly upon our indubitable rights under the Clayton Bulwer treaty, vrights which cannot be affected by any nction the American sen ate may choose to take,, , BROOKLYN 1 BE1EFS John Beauregard of Providence, R. is -Visiting his family on Third street. i , Mr and Mrs Brown of Bridgeport will spend Christmas with the batter's parents, Mr and Mrs Patrick McGrath of Poplar avenue.

A new element of interest has been injected into the military situation in the Second regiment, says the New Haven Sunday Register, by the an nouncement by friends of Captain John Q. Tillsuu of the blues that the popular young captain may consent to be a candidate for the mujorship this coining election. Friends of Captain Tilson state that he has been impor tuned by many of the officers of his own company and of the Grays and bv oltiers to stand for the place and that he lias finally and conditionally acquiesced in the plan. If Captain Tilson comes out openly as a candi date there will be a line row in the coming election as he will poll a largo number of votes and may easily defeat Uie other captains who are standing for 1 he iilace. Captain Donovan of the farsfield, and Captain farter of Waterbury, have been the leading candidates for the mujorship position since the an nouncement of the retirement of Col onel Callahan was made. Captain Donovan failed of tlie election when Colonel Burpee rliretl and is now in the field again with a strong following. It is no secret, however, that frienus of Captain Tilson are anxious to see him ger ihe place in case it is open. Captain Tilson himself does not want to stand it is understood, as he says he has been a captain for so short' a time that he does not want to force himself forward. Captain Tilson. how ever, is known to be one of the bright est men in the rank of captain, and one of the most experienced. He left the Grays to take command of the Blues when that company was in a state or disorganization and since he lias been in command with very capa ble otiicers. the company has risen to be one of the very best in the brig ade and won Imnds down at the late shoot over the other contestants. Cap lain Tilson is the only oilicer in the Second regiment who saw hard service in the late war. As lieutenant of the volunteer army be was with a Tennes see regiment and was considered to be one of l he ablest otiicers in the regiment. His tactical knowledge and skill in managing bodies of men brought him much attention. His candidacy is regarded as an important move in the complex campaigning for the vacant majorship. He will receive the full sppport of the Blues and Grays and many independent votes. CASE OF DEPRAVITY. One of the Most Peculiar Cases Ever Heard Of In the State. Middletown. Dec 24. One of the strangest cases that has ever come be fore the city court was hear Saturday. Michael Ferrucci. 20 years of age and Anuesta l errucci. lit. his sister, were in court, and their baby boy, born April 4. liHMi. was with them. They admitted their relationship, and said that they did not know they were re lated nil i II some weeks after they be gan living together. They were never married. Their story is this: Their mother gave birth to twin girls in Italy T. years ago. Their father denied their parentage and they were sold to other families. Michael never saw his sister after she was is months old until he returned to Italy from this country four years ago. He persuaded her 1o come to this country with him. lie took her to his father, who lives in New Haven, but be refused to let the gill in. so they came here where Mi chael had work. A brother. Joseph. loaned Michael .$". ami when he de manded payment Michael was unable to pay. Out of revenge, .Michael told the court. Joseph revealed the crime to the police. They were bound over to the April term of the superior court under $50 bonds, and were taken to lladdam iail Friday afternoon. The baby boy is a bright appearing child ami its par ents are unite good looking. Thev failed to realize that they had done anything wrong. Their house on Jack son street was in a most squalid con dition, and they had but little cloth- ng or furniture. STRANG E NEW BRITAIN CASE. New Britain, Dec 24. Louis Wil liams called at the police-station Sat urday evening and told a curious story. He said he had gone to cut a Cristmas tree in tlie woods off the Shuttle Mea dow road. While there he came across another tree just cut down with a note attached to it which read as follows: "1 am mad. and nin going to kill myself. Good-bye. I leave this tree for my wife. John N. Riley, 270 Wash. itigtou street." The police immediately started an in vestigation. No such person could be found living on Washington street. A John Riley living on Sexton street was found at home and all right. Ther the matter rests at present, but a search may be made in the woods to day. ICE COMPANY INCREASES STOCK. Bridgeport. Dec 24.
