Waterbury Man .Tells of Hard Work After Vessel Struck on Rocks. One of the numerous Waterbury men doing duty for. Uncle Sam, W. K. Key, in his last letter home, gives some idea of the hartl work, to be performed on board ship when an accident such as happened to the Illinois recentljv oc curs. His letter is as follows: U. S. S. S. Illinois, in Dry Dock, Chat ham, England, July 20, 11)02. Dear Brother I suppose you will be surprised to receive this from me, but as I have a few idle moments 1 decided to spend them in letting . you know where I am. Since I, left America I have had a very pleasant cruise to the Azore Islands, Gibraltar, Naples and Castlemare, Italy, Morocco and Algiers, Africa, Spain, Portugal, Norway, and half dozen ports here in England. .We will take part In the naval review of the coronation on the 9th of next month. s ' i I suppose you read about the Illinois going on the rocks in Norway. I was knocked head over heels, but wag not njured much. The ship suffered most of all. It will cost ft large sum of money tq fix her up again, but a force of men will work on her night and day until she is ready for the cor onation. jVi . - . On the way from Norway to England we were at work while we were abie4 to stand. Of course, we were not or dered, to do So, but we . were at sea; the ship had a hole in her port bow, and the safety of the ship and crew lay in the hands of. the men nt the furnaces, so we stuck to our posts until we sight ed land. The ship weighs. 11000 tons and is not built for speed, but we made the trip in 47 hours. This is my first time on the rocks and once Is enough. When we struck the-rocks I was on the fires, and myself with the rest of the, firemen got much credit for stand ing so f althf ully : to our posts. We also got great credit 'tot 5 getting the ship from .Norway to England in so short time. . But that only goes to show what we American lads are built of; we can do things like that every day In the week If they; will let us. Our only salvation is when we go ashore We own every city we get lib erty in and all other fJackies" must go away back and sit down. Send me some of the Waterbury papers and .1 will remain, 1'our brother, ' W. K. NEY, U. S. S. S. Illinois. GLEN ISLAND.

Last Evening the Man Who Uandlesi the Journal Had to Run for Safety. Still the strike of the newsboys goes on and they have worked so Industri ously against the New York Journal that they ha v almost succeeded in having it tabooed in Waterbury. Last evening they went In a body to the sta tion to ascertain if the agent of the Journal was prepared to sell them 10J for 50 cents instead of 100 for 60 cents, but they learned that he would not con cede to theit demands and, as usual, they refused to take the "yellow stuff." A representative of the Journal was there and he attempted to make a speech to the boys, but the latter be came so obstreperous that he had his troubles. He explained that it was not the monetary consideration that pre vented the Journal from complying with the' little strikers' demands. No, sir; it was honor that stood in the way. The Journal had given its word, which never in the history of man had been violated, to the other New York papers that it would not sell less than the set price. No, it was not the money, but the Journal had a bond of $10,000 In New York Which it would forfeit If it should change the price. Sentimental ity wrung no tears of sympathy from the boys, however -and as they saw the lack of logic in the speech they dem onstrated their disapproval as only boys know how. v ; ? To complicate matters the World, which as soon aa It heard of the Jour nal strike, sent along news .bags and brightly colored caps, yesterday also went up on the price, and the bdys now say that the same fate awaits that paper, banishment !. from Waterbury. Accordingly a number of little, urchins were about the streets .last evening bor rowing shoe blacking from the boot blacks with which to paint signs which they might carry about asking the peo ple to refrain from buying the"scab Journal and World. KEOKUK, la.,' -.Ls. 14. Mississippi river , Cities, lumber interests of the northwest and steamboat lines of the Mississippi river have determined on a combined and strong effort to induce the transmississippi commercial con gress, meeting at St. Paul next week, actively to favor the building of a great dam entirely across the river at Keokuk at the foot of the Des Moines rapids. The effect of such a dam would be to render unnecessary the use of the government canal and Incidentally to develop 60,000 electrical horsepower for commercial ; use.

' Editor Evening Democrat:- s - Sir: In a morning paper I notice a story to the effect that a local manu facturer stated to the repiirter who wrote It that there is likely to he a combination of manufacturers here to light In the courts, if necessary, the proposed listing of their properties at their full valuation; that they consider such action unjust '.to them, and de mand to be relieved from the strict en forcement of the letter of the law. , In making this statement It does not appear that the speaker condemned or even opposed the full valuation theory, as such, but merely in so far as it af fects the manufacturer. A principle which affects the inter ests of. air at the same time, to the same extent, and for the same purpose, must heeds be equitable,, and, it would seem, that, the enforcement of that principle In; 1 its application rigidly, without discrimination' to. , any, must also of necessity be equitable; it fol lows, therefore; if the foregoing , be ! ture, that any departure from the rule would- be inequitable because of dis crimination, would be holding, out to a few opportunities which are denied the majority,"and still further weigh down the Citizen' and taxpayer whose means are Invested in small real estate hold ings. ';. . ,..' .,.;.:. .; - '., If the manufacturers had reason for complaint when the property of all wag. listed on a supposed one-third basis, why should they 'compiaitt .be cause it is proposed now to multiply by 8 the value of the holdings of all and at the same time to divide by 3 the rate of taxation? ' To me it seems that SxS-i-S leaves you in the same situation in which yon found yourself originally, and if my mathematics are not faulty it must fol low, as I. view, the situation, that no argument which has for its basig the idea of discrimination in the matter of taxation, can be otherwise than illogi cal, if it were proposed to deal un fairly with our. industrial concerns, either by listing their holdings at their full valuation while the property Of others was being listed at, less than full . value, or by holding up the prop erty of the manufacturers to a 'ficti tious value, then J should want to see that injustice righted and would not hesitate to proclaim my desire to that ena.nor to condemn a proposition which might involve such a condition, but until it will have been demon strated, that our assessors show a dis position to deal thus unfairly With them I cannot understand why the manufacturers threaten war., To the statement that municipalities sometimes hold out inducements . to manufacturing concerns to locate In their territory, I can but state that it suggests no reason for hesitating to aaopt a just principle, much less for the perpetration bf an outrageously unjust one. In, offering such induce ments , no' municipality would under take to propose freedom from taxation ad innnitum. Nor would it be likely to add to a' proposition of freedom for a number of j'ears one which would in volve a discrimination forever there after In favor of the new concern, ' Such a proposition would be nothing more than a reductio ' , ad absurdum, and no one would 'condemn It more loudly, at least ;in my judgment, than other local manufacturers not related by blood or business ties to the owners of the new concern. ' .. The question" seemg to me to reduce itself to this: Why. should. the manu facturer be excused from paying his just and reasonable share of the public expense, and why should . the poor property owner be expected to bear In addition , to his just and . reasonable proportion of such expense such an amount as would majlie up that propor tion representing the extent to which the manufacturer Is:, excused? .,:::' v.- Thanking you for permitting me the use of so much of your valuable space, Very truly, !
