Upon the complaint of a woman who claimed that her husband was drink ing himself to ruin, a raid was made upon two well known hostelries ii. Oxford last evening by Deputy Sher iffs Rigney of this city and Sweeney of Naugatuck. At the Oxford house, which is kept by James Reiley, the otiicers were defied to find any liquor in the place. Thereupon they searched the house from cellar to attic; but failed to locate any spirits. They were standing in- the kitchen, where the proprietor kept the most innocent looking desk ever seen. An inspira tion seized Sheriff Rigney; here was a place he had "not searched right un der his business optic, and he demand ed the proprietor to open it Mr Reiley threw up his hands, exclaiming: "Y'ou've got me." The desk was opened and about two gallons of whis key in bottles were revealed. . The fiud was larger at the Oxford Inn, kept by George Crofut. Mr Cro fut insisted that not a drop of liquor was on his premises and told the offi cers in the blandest tone they were at liberty to no through the house. In the cellar they found n few dozen of laoer and about ten gallons of various kinds of wMtias. bfsides whiskey, brandy, etc. The liquors in both in stnncs were til-en possession of bv the officers.

THE .l ... ,A THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE - . ' ! L ! . Was Heard For and Against the Proposed Con : solidation Bill Last Night, CARTER PITCHED INTO ATTORNEY KELLOGG He Bronght up the Schemes That Were Resorted to in Order to Add to the. City on a Previous Occasion Attorney Kellogg Said He Had Nothing to do With That General Kellogg is in Favor of Consolidation, but is Opposed to Giving Mayor Power to Appoint Eoard of Assessors Sorne of the Speakers Thought Board of Education Should Have Jurisdiction O.-er All the Schoois-Another PleeLing Will Be Held Next Friday Evening. ' ' The board of aldermen met last night for the purpose of hearing poo pie who desired to express opinions on the consolidation bill. Chairman Hall presided and all the members were'; present except Sir Goss. The attend ance was large, and among the differ ent persons who spoke but one fa vored consolidation as proposed by the committee. As soon as the meeting was called to order Alderman Cross said that he Ihought it would be a good idea to Call in a stenographer to take down what would be said on the matter of consolidation, so that the board would be in a position to make suggestions as might be offered in case there happened to be an improve ment on what the bill contained. Alderman Blakesh-e: '-We have the best stenographer in Waterbury right here." . Alderman Cross: "Who is he?"' Alderman Elakeslee: "The city clerk, Mr Ityan. The best one in town." Alderman Cross: "I'm glad to hear that. We must raise his salary." Mr Ryan: "I hope j-ou won't forget that." After coming to an understanding that the clerk would take notes, the meeting opened with the reading of a short review of the bill singed by the committee. .Tames E. Russell, F. B. Rice, Daniel E. FiJzpatrick. Thom as L). Barlow, John P. Kellogg. On motion of Mr White, the report was received and ord red on tile. Then Sheriff McDonald passed around print ed copies of the bill, which appeared to be in big demand. When Chairman Hall called for re marks on the report of the commit tee. H. K. Brown stepped forward and after a brief pause said: "I'm op posed to consolidation. I have rea sons for my opposition to the passage of such an act, but I do not think I ought to give expression to them at this time. I shall appear against it in Hartford." Henry W. Tyrrell of Simonsville said that the bill contained all the ob jectionable features of the present sys tem and wanted to know why the townspeople could not be permitted to levy their own tax, collect it aud at tend to their own affairs, ana let the city do the same. lie objected to con ferring power upon the mayor to ap point the board of assessors and the board of relief and contended that these ollices should be tilled by a di rect vote of the electors of the town. He thought, however, that if the peo ple on the outside and the city people could get together and talk matters over the -objectionable features of the bill might be eliminated and that prob ably all might favor it under certain conditions. If the bill passes. Mr Tyr rell hopes to see a polling district in Simonsville. L. R. Carter spoke at some length and came near getting into a row with City Attorney Kellogg over the schemes that were rrsorted to by "high priced city counsel" in order to bring about the consolidation of the school and city governments. At that time, he said, a solemn promise was made to owners of property in the new district that they would not have to pay more than half the rate of taxation charged against those within the old city line, and after two years all this was to be forgotten aud the people taxed the same as thos on the inside. He did not think this fair, because a large share of property in the annexed district could not share in the benefits that come from public improvements for years, and on this acocunt he did not 'believe it should be taxed for them. Attorney Kellogg wanted to know vhiit Mr Carter meant about the high priced city attorneys, and fina'ly forced Mr' Carter to admit that this promise of half taxes to the outside d'strict was made to Senator Mitchell bv Colonel Burpee. "Colonel Burpee," siid Mr CartT. "told Senator Mitchell that if the city ever tried to change that svstem of taxation he would fight against it. but I don't see him around liei'e to-night. I admit that Mr Kel logg w-ns not as active in the Interest of that bill as Colonel Eunice, but Mr Kellogg was there. I saw him at the bearing before the committee on cities and boroughs." Mr Kellogg stated that lie went into the committee's headquarters just the same as many othei's had done who had no particular interest in that bill. John Buckley was of the opinion that the tax in the annexed district should not be increased for at least ten years. Judge Cowell talked on the subject for aboii t "half an hour, in the course of which he said some things in favor of consolidat'on and a great deal more in support of half tax f or the ann-xed district, so called. He did not think that the legislature would take very kindly to the broken faith on the part of the city with the outside distrct and believed that a bill with such a provision could not b passed. He saw nothing unusual in three rates of taxation, one in the old city, another In the new district and still another in the town. The speaker cited several instances where the same rate of taxa tion would work a great hardship to many people, notably parts of Burnt Hill, where there are no improvements and not likely to be for -the next cen tury. During the discussion that took place between Judge Cowell and City Attorney Kellogg it was shown that all the money the city received from the town last year was about $7.00Q, whil the city pa'd the town in the neighborhood of $35,000. Judge Cowell admitted that beisinfavorof consolida tion, but "added that he could not favor it in its present shape. He thought that the committee avoided the tx question purposely, bellevinp that the aldermen would prefer to wrestle with this problem themselves, and, con cluded by stating that us the board was composed bt men of honesty of purpose and sound judgment, he knew tbey would make such changes in the draft as would meet with general ap proval. . General Kellogg was very " muck pleased with the bill except the sec tion which provides that the board - ! of assessors and the board of relief be appointed by the mayor. He said he always looked upon these offices as ; somewhat different to the .board . of health and the board of public works. JUU luougnt that they ought to be elective instead of appointive offices. v and hoped that the aldermen would look at the matter in the same r-iir j and amend the draft so that the "s : sessors and the board of relief shall ! b0 olOC it'll I! V f llr rH-rtlVL ic.f rtr fl appointed by the mayor. Geaeral Kei lopg saw no injustice ia taxing the outside- district the same-as on the insult- ana stated that there ?a not as :nucu nadejelopcd property ia thcutMed district now as there was in tiie city proper when it was iueorpor.-ijued, and no one thuuyht of two rates of taxa tion. i Martin Scully asked Judge Cowell if he thought the annexed district en titled to public improvements while the rate of taxation remained as it is at present. Judge Cowell said he did not think so. Mr Scully then stated that the necessity of having the same rate of taxation for property in the old and new city lines was forced upon the people on account of the per sistent demand for improvements on the part of a dozen or more persons on the outside, who claimed that they wanted the improvements, were able aud willing to pay for them, aud that if the matter of taxation was not equitable th's was something they had nothing to do with and should not be made to suffer for it. "I believe," con tinued Mr Scully, "that if we are going to have consolidation the same rate ot taxation should obtain all over tne city, and let the difference in the value of property be determined by the as s?ssors as it is now and has been since in the city" for the past forty or' fifty years. The section I live in has always been in the city, ami property there is taxed at the same ratesc as in the center, although the city never spent a dollar about some parts of it and many of the streets have not been supplied with city water. The people oil the out side are paying the school tax. and in this respect they are as well provided for as those on the -in-1 side. If the new ilistrict remains a " part of the city, property there should be taxed the same as on the inside. At present the demand for public im provements in the added district is as great as in any ether part of the city. They want water in Simnnsviile; they are looking for water, sewers aad side walks in North Slain and North Wil low streets, and petitions are coming in for electric lights in all sections of the new district. Who's going to pay for these improvements? Under the present system tiie expanse must be met by property owners on the inside. Already the aldermen have decided to give people on ' the outside ifl.000 worth of electric lights, more than prople who are paying full taxes received last year, and more than they are likely to get this year. If the outside district wants public improvements it should be taxed to meet the expense. If it does not need improvements perhaps the present, rate of taxation is ail right. School lines should be obliterated and the board of education given full jurisdic tion over all the schools in Waterbury. I am pleased to know that General Kellogg favors electing the board of assessors and the board of relief in stead of giving the appointment to the mayor. I believe the people Should elect all public ofiiciafls." E. I. R'ordan was much i pleased with the draft and would like to see it passed as submitted. George E. Benham of West Side lull -was very much in favor of providing that the board of education have juris diction over all the schools. He lives about a hundred yards outslda the city, but sends his chddren to the c.ty schools, and thought that if the tw.o governments should be merged inti one the schools should be under the same head and contended that the ed ucational institutions of Waterbury would profit by such-a course. "There is a good deal of bickering in the j town schools," said Mr Bennam. j "That such a system as I am talking about would do away with. I belong in Oronoke. I suppose you have heard , of the Oronoke school district. I think everybody in AVaterbiiry has, and peo ple there and in other town districts --ho want to provide the best possible hool accommodation for their chil r n would like P -e the board of ducation in charge ill the schools." Joseph Corr was i. ivor of consoli dation undar certain conditions. Hf thought ' the selectmen should be re tained to do -such work as the bill pro vides shall be performed by a board of charities. "The selectmen," said Mr Corr, "will have to be retained any way, and if you want to reduce offices and cut down expenses, I think.it . would be a good plan to have tlieni attend to the p6or as usual .and make put appropriations, for them the same as you do for the other city depart ments. Mr Corr switched off from the ( subject and started to talk upon the j folly of the policy of bonding the city i for public improvements, and staged : that when the city cannot pay as it' goes it should stop creating expenses. i H. E Tullar, from Waterville, said that the feeling in that place is strong in opposition to consolidation, but that he was of the opinion that if certaiu changes were made in the bill people - would look at It differently. He thought that at least one of the as sessors should belong In the town, aud that the outlying districts should ba represented on all the boards. 1 t ' "The hearths was ; continued until.- next Friday evening, bnt the board . .... , , - 1 tlMtn Bight .
