" The fire was discovered at 10:40 p m., a few minutes after the evening performance had ceased. Twenty minutes after the fire was discovered the entire building, which was con structed almost entirely of wood, was a mass of fiames. Mr Bostock estimates his loss on ani mals at about $400,000. The owners of the building could not be found last night, but it could probably be dupli cated for $15,000 or $20,000. , : CHILD DIED BY OPEN GRAVE.- Little One Thrown in Spasms by v Coughing While Attending Burial." - Newark, N.

It is now 'general. ly accepted that the wording of the proclamation at Pretoria describing King Edward as '-sum-erne lord of and over the Transvaal" was deliberately designed to promote . conciliation. Special significance is attached to the fact that the Times prints a letter from Sir Henry Drummond Wolff (formerly British ambassador at Mad rid), in which he, declares It is diffi cult to exaggerate the importance of this wise and beneflcient step. The title, he says, is likelier than any other that could be devised to lead to paci fication. It establishes the suDremacv of the British soverign and recognizes J the moral entity of the Transvaal. keeps it separate Worn the constitu tional empire and places its ancient laws, customs,..

The reasons given for the gov ernment's action are that there is no state, church in Canada, and that the holding of a" state service in Christ Church Cathedral might be regarded as a reeognition-of the Church of Eng land as the state church of the Do minion, and consequently would give great offense to other denominations throughout -Canada.

This unusual de- tail has been arranged in accordance with the definitely expressed wishes of the . Queen.

In the Words of a Well Known : Statesman, WHAT ARE WE HERE FOR? Republicans Shedding Crocodile Tears Because Democrats Look for Even a Policeman's Berth And Also - Fighting Tooth ' and Nail Among Themselves for Sure Thing Legisla- tive Offices No ; county Commis sionerships or Judgeships Being Handed Out to Democrats. N Some of our neighbors who kept their tongue in their cheek while the republican policy of gobble everything in sight was being carried on all- over the state, are now but lecturing the board of public safety lest it should dare to follow suit and elect five po licemen without making sure that the republican's are rememoered. That's consistent and in full accord with re publican logic, and of course anyone Who does not accept that doctrine is sure to be placed on the long list of distinguished Americans who within the brief space of a twelve-month have 'made asses of themselves," a sentence pronounced upon Pa.rick Egan because he happened to riffer from somebody else. At the beginning and until very recently, this was a right accorded to every American,' but that day is now but a memory and at the present time f a man does not wantto be lampooned and black guarded he; must wait until the divinely commissioned exponents of Americanism have been heard from and then- govern himself accordingly. What s the matter with introducing a little of this broadmindedness we hear so much about into the republican camp? Why not come cut flatfooted and request our distinguished friend, Mr Lilley, who is now monarch of all he surveys in New Haven county, to do the square thing by getting a dem ocrat elected on the board of county commissioners to succeed Hart D.. Munson? The two holdovers arev re publicans and it would seem nothing more than fair .to give a minority rep resentation to the other fellows. But that, wouldn't do, and the republican who would advocate such a course would be railroaded out of the party and never again permitted to put a hand on the machine. ' But this is all bosh. Who in thunder would think that republicans would dream of hand ing out pie to democrats while their own kith and kin; -were. breaking their necks ia. a- macU scramble to - grab crumbs and all. The democrats tried this game on the board of county com missioners several years ago, but their successors never were chumps enough to be misled by the example.. The question is often asked as to how it comes to . pass - that all the judges of the Waterbury courts belong to the same political party. Is this the result of .a. welt regulated plan or merely a coincidence? Of course there is no politics in it. Banish the thought and" confound the rascal who would dare to eyen think- such a thought, though he never alliwed it to escape from his lips! Do yon want to know, you nincompoops, why all our judges, clerks, messengers, prosecutors, depu ty sheriffs and holdc-T3 of every . other berth not filled by a vote of the people that there is a dollar in. are republicans? The object is tokeep politics out of such places. Some people will say that this looks like a game or "goDDie, out to those who look at it in that light we say, "you're 'way off." That kind of logic would be all right if the boot were on the pther foot. You fellows have been taught to believe in the theory, "what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander," but that doc trine is now as dead as a smoked her: ring so far as the republican party is concerned, if it ever had any real ex istence there, though, to be sure, it still holds when, we get down to deal with democrats. - , - 1 What a howl would go up from re publican throats if the republican coun- i .. ,i T,i... o'Yoin r,w Ty cauens nuu uawcu uvu v judge of the district court and Attor ney Carmody or some otner ueiuucmi, as associate judge! What would happen- in case Judge Burpee" were suc ceeded"by James R Russell or Charles G Root, and H. R. Durant turned down nnrl T. F. Lawlor installed in ms. stead? -Whew! : We must stop. Wed want a paper that wouia cover me green to go into this subject, and then we wouldn't have room enough to tell half the story of republican greed. They take everything that comes to thm in the matter of appointive and elective positions and then, unless the democrats divide the trifles at their disposal, we hear the snout: -r-ontics: pontics'" But away with this- nonsense. Let us talk about the man of the hour perhaps we should have said, the man of an hour-i-uepresenxauve,.t;oi-se -n.-T.Ulfe-r. who is said to be lobbying in Hartford with sv-vlew to convincing the Ura&kers' that it would not be wis to refer, the matter of consolida tion of the town and city governments f Wnterburv to a vote or tne peopie, Why? The answer must be plain to alL There can be no reasonable ex planation put forward in defense of such a contention, except that the peo ple are not competent to decide what is ,-rnr their own good and that In order to save them from themselves this question must be settled by men who have no special Interest in the affairs of the community.. Just how the elec ts at Waterburv will take to this Is something that would be impossible to determine Just now. trot It is safe to predict that tbe taxpayers of this, town have not yet reached . . point Where w am nransred to admit that they are not capable of conducting thsir n affair and wish to have Mr Ulley m. anvbodfatar aot -as 'conservator JSie-tl Is tas saltJaAiJ O. bat peoj?W Wi4 stand behind him no longer than while he continues to act along the lines of reason. When he-begins to feel that he knows more . than all the - people those who clothed him" with authority will take the first opportunity to re duce him to a place., among the ordi nary " mortals and pick up some one who will seek to legislate .after , the fashion of a man representing free men rather than one who" appears on behalf of a community- of erfs. If consolidation be aj good thing and the electors of Waterbury want it, all right, but. on the contrary, " if in the opinion of a majority of-the people, the change is not desirable, that should be the eitd of it for the present, and the man who says that we should not have an opportunity to say "yes" or "no" on the question has a rather pe culiar notion of what constitutes citi zenship in a republic like the United States. When you get right down . to business "the people are supreme," and it is a "darned" good job for them that this is true, for if some if our law makers had life berths, instead of be ing "tenants at will," they'd lay on the lash and woe betide the man who would look around to inquire the cause of the raw hiding: - Let the people, not Mr Llllsy, decide ..whether. .we want consolidation or not. ; .
