In round numbers, this coun try spent $300,000,000 for hospitals, or phanages, new churches, etc, etc, in 1900. The Catholics head the list with $31,000,000, Methodists $26,000,000 Presbyterians $20,000,000 Episcopali ians $14,000,000, Baptists $12,000,000, Salvation Army $750,000 nnd so on down the line. In 1800 we had 2,340 churches and to-day we- have 187.4S1 churches in the United States alone. This is a marvelous showing a pretty good world to live in. The next best thing to do to make the world better is for the great Trusts 'and Combina tions who control prices to show their honesty to the people by paying GOOD LIVING WAGES. The habit of pay ing sttiall wages is a bad habit. What is the world to anyone who has not got a comfortable home, with comfortable surroundings?

Driver Trown In the Air and r Cart , Dragged Several Hundred Feet I There -was a big sensation in South Brooklyn -this morning when the 8:W5 tram collided with a cart belonging to Edward McManus, throwing . the driver, Frank Napoleon, several feet into. the air and tearing the cart off the. horse and dragging it several hun dred feet. It was a close call, and while it Is thought that the driver was more scared than hurt, still it is hard to tell about that, for he got a bad fall. McManus has men at work drawing sand from the bank at the west side of the track and while driv ing over the rails this morning the train came upon -the cart in charge of Frank Nicholas Napoleon before he had a chance to get out of the way. A freight that was standing on a sid ing shut out the view down the road and on this account the engine was but -a short distance from the spot when the man got onto the track. When he realized his perilous position he gave a yell and a roa' and struck the horse with the reins. The animal made a bound towards the bank, thus getting his own heels out of the way on time to save them from being ground off.?The train came to a stand still and tlie conductor and engineer got down and looked over the ground. All the tacts were reported to Superin tendent Beach. A SECOND EXPLOSION. Victoria. B. C, Feb 16.

The Year 1900 a Prosperous One for Vaterbury Manufacturer's. The manufacturing concerns of ''Water-bury were, never in, a more prosper ous condition. While all of them de clared -annual dividends at their last' meetings of the .year in December, many of them were little less than monstrous. All of the big concerns, furthermore, built large additions last year, which have been paid for to the last Cent. It is noticeable, also, that not one of them increased the pay of the workmeu, but, ou the contrary, never before had there been so many labor disturbances in this city over wages. The effects oi the strike in the adjusting department at tlie clock factory are still felt among the work men, at all events, and the same might be said of the situation at the casting department at the Waterbury Manu facturing company's giant plant. One of Hie big silverware factories has been closed by the silver trust and hundreds- of men thrown out of work, while a great many of them have lost their equity in houses they had built near the factory whose wheels are now silent, and which before it became a mere atom in the assets of the trust was one of the big concerns in this city. Following is the dividend declared by each concern in fair round ligures: The New England Watch company. S per. cent: Scovill Monufacrurlng com pany, between 30 and 40 per cent; Waterbury Clock company. 47 per cent; Waterbury Manufacturing com pany, about 25 per cent, certainly not less than that amount: Plume & At wood company and the American Ring company. 2U per cent each; the Farrell Foundry and Machine company. -10 per cent: this is about the same ligurc that this concern has been paying for years: Holmes. Booth & Havdens', C per cent; American Pin company, 5 per cent. This concern is paying for a large tract of land and new build ings. The VaterburyHrass company and the Benedict & Kiirnham company, which are now owned by the American Brass company. 0 por cent each. The stockholders in these firms, while they do not draw as high a dividend as they did before they sold to the American Brass company, draw as much as be fore, having more slock this being one of the conditions of the sale. HEALTH OF THE STATE. January Deaths Numbered 1,430 Vaccination and Smallpox. Tlie state board of health has issued its report for the last month. There were 1.4;!) deaths during January. This was :SH more than iu December, 72 more than in January -of last year, and 713 more than the. average num ber of deaths in January for the live years preceding. The death rate was 18.5 for the large towns, 120.4 for the small towns and Ul.O for the whole state. The deaths reported from in fectious diseases were '-37), being Hi.4 per cent, of the total mortality. Deaths occurred in the state from diseases as follows: Measles. 3; scarlet fever, f: rip. 1.12; cerebro-spmal fever, S: diphtheria and croup. 41; whooping cough, 5: erysipelas, (; typhoid fever. 14; malarial fever, 2; puerperal fever, 3: diarrhoea, 12; consumption. 1":1: pneumonia, 22!: bronchitis, 7:5; dis eases of nervous system, 14:5; heart disease, 119: accidents and violence. i2: all other diseases. 42,". Thee mor tality in public institutions of the state was: Bridgeport. '.: Hartford. 20: Middletown, 14; New Haven, 22. Sixteen towns report as having no deaths in January. They are: An dover, Beacon Falls. Bozrah. Canter bury, Canton, Chaplin. Columbia. Dur ham. East Cranby, Easton. Killing worth. Middlebury. Middletield. Sa lem. Sterling and Trumbull. The reg istrars of Canaan and Wlllington did not report for last month. In regard to smallpox the report says: The recent outbreak of smallpox in New York city naturally excited an apprehension that it would invade Connecticut. It has moderately, but far less than was feared. There have been six cases in Bridgeport, one in Derby and three in Torrington; none fatal as yet. The remarkable exemp tion from this dread pestilence, which Connecticut has enjoyed, while it has been prevailing to the number of thousands of cases in other states, can only be attributed to the general prac tice of vaccination in Connecticut. Vaccination has been ou trial now for more than a hundred years, and has been tested in every civilized country in the world, and everywhere proved itself a sure nnd safe means of pro tection, when properly performed. It is true there are a few mentally dis- torted persons who deny its protective .... - .1 . nower. luev represent a ciass 01 oi- jectors in the human family that al ways exists. They are like the famous colored preacher of Virginia who claimed that the earth was the center of the solar system, and with illogical obstinacy Insisted "dat de sun do move round it." I LETTER CARRIERS' BALL. The Sixth Annual Was a Brilliant Success. City hall was again the scene of merry festivities last evening, when the sixth annual concert and sociable of the letter carriers of Waterbury was held. The handsome and natty manner in which the hall was deco rated at once attracted the eye nnd won the admiration of tlie exceedingly large audience iu attendance. The balls of the letter carriers iu the past have been grand affairs, but the sixth annual surpassed them In every de tail. Here and here upon the stage were handsomely displayed numerous potted plants, from behind which ..the sweet and inspiring strains of dulcet melody emanated. The American band furnished music for the dancing and also rendered an interesting con cert program as a prelude to the danc ing. The program of the concert was as follows: Overture O. Nicolrl Merry Wives of Windsor. .A. Czibulka Woodland Whispers ....C. F. Brlegel Love's Frolics William Loraine Salomes-Intermezzo. . The Limit medley ...... G. Michiels Czardas.' , Shortly after the conclusion of the concert,, which was of l'are merit, the grand march commenced. Postmaster J. H. Guernsey and Prof Leo Herr led with the twenty letter carriers immedi ately after them. About 150 couples participated In it. Dancing followed, the program consisting of eighteen numbers, for which the American band orchestra furnished music and Prof Herr prompted. Tne gallery and the body of the hall was filled.

It was a jolly party that enjoyed a straw ride to Beacon Falls last even ing. A more merry crowd could not be gathered together. After reaching Beacon Falls all partook of a splendid 1 epast. Both on the way to and fro ' -mere were songs and recitations galore.. Officer William Goegins'and ilioiuas Finuegan were voted the best directors that ever existed. A surprise party was given in honor of Miss Alfred a Whitley at her home on Bank street last eveuln- large number of her friends "were present and the evening was pleasant ly spent 111 games and amusements. . iongs were rendered bv Tlioui-s Me- ' Donald.

Danciug was one of the features of the evening. Refresh ments were served. A private, sociable aud dance was given in l'.eaulae's hall on Charie.-s street last evening y a number of young people in ihis section. The grand march, in which about twenty couples were participants, was led by Patrick OT.ti.n and Miss .Hooker. ..Mcnaei irtnnan prompted for tlie dancing, which was followed until an early hour. Refreshments were served. All present had a most de lightful time aiid it was their unani mous desire that a similar affair would be given in the near future. The com mittee of arrangements was as fol lows: Michael Biennau. chairman; Patrick O'Brien. John Malone, John Cunningham. Michael Cavanaugh. Pat rick Clark and Michael Mack. The twelfth anniversary of the Brooklyn Athletic club was celebrated in a right royal manner by the mem bers of this ever increasing iu popular ity organization and their many friends. The decorations of the club's rooms at once fascinated the eye and many were the compliments which the decorator's work received last evening. As on former occasions, the boys gal lantly upheld their reputation as en tertainers of the first rank. Every thing was done by the members to make' the affair the most enjoyable in the history of the club, and that they succeeded was well manifested by th- manner iu which everyone appeared to be enjoying him or herself. After the conclusion of the grand march, which was led by President Daniel McCarthy and Miss Mollie McCarthy, followed by about 1"0 couples, danc ing followed until a late hour. Music for the dancing was furnished by the Excelsior orchestra aud Prof Harper did tlie prompting. During the inter-' mission lu-tween the dauceg a light collation was served. During ihe even ills' remarks were made by tlie presi dent, Daniel McCarthy, Steve O'Brien, ex-president, Thomas ' Mitchell. J. Kiely. E. J. Donahue and M. Mulca hey." President McCarthy made rather a neat speech in which he related the story of the organization of the dub, told of the most important events in its history and dilated on its rapid growth and its present prosperity. Manv out of town guests were pres ent, 'including the following: J. Bu chanan and P. Ladiance. Bridgeport; Homer Marchaud. South Norwalk: F. she, Vnsonia and the Misses Alice Kielv. New Haven. Smith. Derby; Stevens. Sevmour, and Jones. Torring ton The c ommittee of arrangements consisted of J. O'Brien. J. Duuphv. D. McCarthy. Michael Madden. Larry Robinson and Charles Schmidt. KENNEDY TRIAL ADJOURNED. Ruling Out of Handwriting Causes Much Discussion Among Lawyers. New York, Feb 16. There was a sudden adjournment of the Kennedy case yesterday until Monday morning. Mr Cantwell said the ruling of Justice 1 Fursman barring out the testimony of l , n snt-nnsft handwriting experts was a surprise aud the defense was not prepared to proceed with the case. Speaking of Justice Fursman's rul ing on the testimony of handwriting experts, Assistant District Attorney Osborne said yesterday: "If 'Justice Fursman's ruling is good law. then to my knowledge at least six men have been illegally executed. Not only this. but. hundreds of others, iu cases, not capital, hn.ve suffered im prisonment. "In the case of Dr Buchanan the court of appeal's sustained the decision of the lower court. Dr Buchanan's conviction was brought about princi pally by the testimony of Professor Ames, the handwriting expert. Take the case of Molineux. Weeks and Battle went before Justice Pardon C. Williams and asked that the indict ment be dismissed on the ground that the testimony of the handwriting ex perts was not sufficient to find an in dictment on. Justice. Williams decid ed to the contrary, in a most decided manner. "In the case of William TT. Schooley, convicted of receiving stolen goods by means of a false signature to a power of attorney, and whose conviction was brought about, by a comparison of handwriting and sustained by the court of appeals, that tribunal made use of the following: -' W e know or 110 prin ciple or rule in law which would jus tify the court in rejecting this evi dence.' , A parallel case to that of Dr Kenne dy which resulted in the birth of this decision is that of the case of the peo ple vs kray. Coray was indicted in Madison county for the murder of an Indian, and was convicted by compari son of handwriting exhibits consisting of a signature iu a Bible and a letter to his sweetheart, in which he stated his intcut to kill the Indian. The court of appeals decided flat-footed la favor of the admission of such testi mony, although the letter was not set forth in the indictment," .: , - Roller skating at the auditorium Sat urday matinee!
