WATERBURY EVENmG DEMaCRATIONDAY, JANUARY 7 190L i I r v DECORATIONS TOOK FIRE, Everbody Kept Their Heads and Averted a ranic. By the presence of mind of Rev Dr Martin yesterday a panic was averted in St Cecilia's church. Since Christ inas time the altars have been decollat ed with holly and evergreen and the wreaths and other trimmings of that kind hive become very dry and In flammable. The choir at the half past ten service was just concluding the nsperges, when it was noticed that a - tiny flame had crept from one of the candles on the' main altar to a vase thai was filled with holly. The latter at once ignited and one of the altar boys ran up the steps and attempted to 'beat out the flames with a book he held in his hand. This only served to fan the fire and it was getting be yond -the boy's control when several of the congregation started for the altar. Leo Heringer was the first to reach the scene and he. at the direction of Father Martin, took the vase with the burning holly and carried it into the sanctuary, where the fire was ex tinguished. Many of the people in the congregation had arisen to their feet as they saw the blaze grow larger, but through it all Father Martin remained nt the" foot of the altar, and never once by gesture or by any act. betrayed any nervousness. Had he himself made a move to ascend the steps of the altar and quench the lire, the people would undoubtedly have bei-ome excited. Seeing him act so unconcerned nnvle 1he majority of the others feel that there was no danger. For a minute, however, it created quite a Utile ex citement, as thd lire had got consider able headway before it was extin guished. THE Y. M. C. A. MEETING.

Watson Hanuaii, of the First Methodist church. After Mr Camp had introduced him as the speaker of the day. Major Hil ton, of New York, who is a simple, though eloquent speaker, serious though at times humorous, plain but forcible, made the following introduc tory remarks: "I am to speak to you about 'Soul Poison.' In the words of the Scripture, which have been read, it says. "The sonl that sinncth, it shall die.' There must be life before there can be death. You pluck up a blade I of grass and lay it on the tble. It I withers. It had life, but it dies. The life must be nourished, and the food suited to the Ufe must be given." j Mr Hilton's address was a very in- 1 teresting and instructive one. fully showing that the sneaker was very familiar with the subject on which he spoke. In the evening Major Hilton delijS f-red another equally as capable anfl forcible address on the topic. "Charac ter and Capital." at the Second Con gregational church. Ho held the rapt attention of his audience throughout, rte related several experiences of his during life, which were especially in terpsting.

Otl3W31. U - CONSOLIDATION AND TAXATION The Latter Scenes to Be the Trouble some Question. No matter what way you look at the proposed consolidation act, the ques tion of taxation stands out more prom inently than any other provision of the draft. It hits every man In the same spot, his pocket, and once you touch people there you start them thinking quicker than in any other way. Prop erty owners in the annexed district ap pear to have no particular objection to consolidation, provided the present rate of- taxation is not changed, and in addition to this they demand some assurance that the city will keep faith with them in this respect, so that no matter how great the burdens of the city, in they future, they will not be asked to bear any of them. and. judg ing by the class of men who are be hind this movement, we should not be surprised to see the eonsolidntion iss forced to make this concession, or abandon t'ie protect. If things should turn ort this way. owners of real es tate within the old city lines should see to it that, no public Improvements siiaH be mrwtf. in districts tbat ore not paving fill) taxes. At reeut. every tv.oi(i,nt of llif city 1a!3 tlint his rate bills are as large ns they ouht to be. Many ulaitii tliov are too hisrh and fav ored consolidation when it was first talked of because they thought the ac uuisilion of new territory would give Hi"' city additional revenue and that iii Oils account, if taxation should not : be reduced, it was not likely to be ad- I vanecd. the rate ol taxation was made 'uniform in the city of Water bury when it was incorporated, and. as General Kellogg said at the hearing Friday night, there was more waste land in the city proper when it was incorporated than there is now in the new dislrht. Why. then, introduce special rates for proixvly which, in the natural order of things, will be provided with public improvements before some sections of the old city that have been paying full taxes for Iho n?!s:f- lmlf erntnrv Tf nnr prnnd neighbors on the outside want to be j f;lj,.. ant wo do not doubt their lion- ! PSIV of purpose, they should be as ! roady to offer a guarantee that they ; -will not look for public Improvements I while paving only a half rate of taxa- ! (ion. os they .n-o to receive assurances j that they will not be taxed to meet such cv peeves. Sorrio of the outside pro'iertv owners claim that all they receivfj from the citv is school necom- I Tuodatiori. 'fiat's all tbev are paving for. What ri"iit. have 1le-r to expect mra'p unless thov are willing to pay for it? POULTRY AND FET STOCK. First Annual Exhibition Will Op?n in City Hall To-morrow. The first annual exhibit of the Nau gatuck Valley Poultry and Pet Stock association will open ih City hall to morrow morning and continue for three days. Most of the birds will be in their cages to-day and the sight that will greet the eyes of patrons of the shew will be away and beyond the most sanguine expectations of Water bury people, none of whom thought when the thing was first talked of that such an exhibit, could be gotten up here. In this they were-' very much mistaken for, it seems, that Waterbury and neighboring towns. Watcrtown es pecially, occupy a prominent place in the business of raising fowl, and one needs but a. glance- at the different j birds already in the ball to be con vinced of the truth of this statement. The roar of roosters of various sizes i and the cackling of hens, mingled with ! the gabbling of geese and quacking of decks, make-' up quite a combination of inharmonious sounds in the City hall building, and cause people not aware , of the siiow to wonder what it is all about. It is the first exhibit of the kind ever held in Waterhury and the management is snaring no pains or ex pense to make it a success, and it is betied that, f'e ni'l.iUr will show amiro ciaiiep of the e'ort that being made in tMs illrecitnn by visiting the place iti la rare numbers.

Marvin Dun phy enlisted in the regular army Juno, 3S!f, at the Kiib-rocruiting station in this city. He was assigned to Com pany A, Ninth regiment, which saw duty in the northern part of Luzon. He witnessed the death of General Lawton. Many and hot were the skir mishes in which his regiment were en gaged with the Filipinos in the north ern part of Luzon and Martin had several narrow escapes, as attested by bullet holes in his coat. During the first six months in the Philippines the work was very difficult, the boys be ing unused to the climate, and besides, the discipline was very strict. He has words of praise for Generals Wheeler and MaoArthur, who always treated the soldiers very admirably. As to the Filipinos, he says they are not the dark, ignorant savages they are iinteel, but are as learned, if not more so, than the average person in this country. On July 2!. 1900, after the Boxer outbreaks in China had oc curred. Martin's regiment was trans ferred to China. At the battle of Tien Tsin. in which their colonel. Mr Liscum.'was killed, they were in the thickest of the fight. They made the better progress of any nation's repre sentatives in the allied armies and were first to scale the mnd wail which surrounded Tien Tsin. About yards from the mud wall was a wall of stone. It was within this space that Colonel Liscum was killed and Hint Martin Dunphy was shot four times in the left log. From 0 o'clock that after noon.
