WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1G, 1902.
3 SUBURBAN DEPARTMENT NAUGATUCK HUGGETS Funeral oft Mrs Charles Baxter Took Place To-day. J. J. Melloy, who has been engaged iiere on the new Congregational church, has finished his work and returned to his home in Hartford yesterday. The funeral of Mrs Adelaide Baxter, wife of Charles Baxter or Cherry street, and whose death occurred Sunday, took place this morning at 8:30 from the house and 9 o'clock rrom St Fran cis's church. The interment was in St James's cemetery. In the death of Mrs Baxter there has been called away one of Nauga tuck's oldest resi dents. For forty long years had the deceased lived here and watched the gradual growth of the borough. She leay.es a husband, one son, Charles J. Baxter of the News staff, and a sister, Mrs Stewart, to mourn her loss. She was' possessed of a pleasing and lova ble nature and to know her was to like her. By her many . friends, of which she had a host, she was held In the highest . esteem, and they all deeply deplore her death. - A. S.i Barnes has returned from . a business trip to Thomaston. There is a case of scarlet fever in the home of John Howell on Rubber avenue, ''Mr Howell's wife being down with the disease. ; , f - Attorney Bowen is in New York on business.. . The board of warden and burgesses will meet to-night. - The committee of arrangements for the annual ball of Ojeda council, K. of C, are rapidly making arrangements for the grand event. They will spare Co pains -or expense to make the ball the ''social :event "of the season. It si easy to see that when the rules for bull fighting; were 1 drawn up the bull was not consulted. He is brought into the arena to be killed, and the ad vantage his ferocity and his cutlass like horns seem to give him is, from the moment he enters the ring until bis carcass is dragged from it, handi capped by his own stupidity. As an Englishman has written, "Xo man who has a sense of true spirit would en gage with a- dozen other men against a brute that Is so stupid as. to expend Its fury a hundred times in succession on a piece of red cloth, ' ignoring the man who holds it." The whole in wardness of bull fighting is expressed In that paragraph. It Is the popular opinion that the bull , fighter stakes his life against the life of the bull. But, as a matter of fact.- while he is attack ing the bull, the bull is attacking a crimson flag. "When the espade, sword In hand, faces the bull, there is sup posed to be a duel between the man and the brute. But there is not. It is as though two men with swords fought a duel ; with one of them carrying a dishcloth in his left hand, andwhile he lunged at the heart of his opponent his opponent stabbedlat the:disheloth. It. must als'be understood. that before the matador faces ' the bull, the bull has been bled by half a dozen darts, has been tun off bis lesrs until he is breathless and exhausted, and that he is surrounded by adversaries whose business it is, should the bull actually attack the matador, to blind the bull with their cloaks. The chances airainst the bull are illustrated by the fact that during the 'bull-fighting season in Spain, twice a week in every large city and town, from four to eisrht bulls are killed, while' the pronortion of bull fighters wounded or killed is no great er than the proportion of oolls boys killed or hurt during a football season In America.

Mrs Clark was born in Hudson Ohio, De cember 29, 1852. She left there when a child, has lived a short time in" New York,, but the most of her life has been passed in this state. She has been an invalid for about twenty-five years, but ever patient and cheerful, though suffering. She was a kind and loving mother and . died professing faith. She leaves three children to mourn-her loss, one son, Burdette, two daughters, Bessie and Susie. The fu neral services will be held ; Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the." M. E. church.

Blniir People Drawing Currency from tUe Banks Request the L'n- ... nied Bills. ' " There is an unprecedented demand for new-money. ' In reaching out for the evidence of wealth aesthetic taste is asserting itself in the choice of the tokens : of -prosperity. New, cldan, crisp notes are 1 in demand, and; per sons do not hesitate to ask for them, says the New York Herald. There is a strongly asserted objection to -receiving old, dirty, crumpled paper that looks as though it might be a vehicle for all sorts of disease germs. - This fact is in evidence at the win dow of every bank teller in the land and at the cash counter of every store. . : , "Please give .me new money," and "Will you give me a clean bill in place of this one?" are requests heard thousands of times every day. These requests are having their effect so far that there is a growing tendency to pay out only the clean, unobjec tionable money. It is an illustration of the old truth that people get what they want and insist on having. Every bank will verify this. fact. Old and objectionable bills go into them, but they do not go out to their customers. They go to the redemp tion" division of the national treas ury, where they are exchanged for new money, and then destroyed. That department reports an immense increase in this . bi'anch of its business. ASKED TO EXPLAIN. Secretary Hay Sends Notes to l Germany and England. . RUINED CITY OF COPAN. Worlc of Excavation 1y Scientists on Prehistoric Remains Stopped by Honduras Government. ?, Central America with 25, -ulh America with 37. Many - are upon islands. Geo- L T . -a.. All work on the ruins of the great prehistoric city of Copan, in Honduras, has- been suspended by order of the Honduras government. Extensive ex cavations have, been made at Copan by agents of the Peabody exploration fund, and great palaces and temples, giant stairways and broad plazas have been unearthed. Enough was uncov ered to show that Copan was the capi tal of a great empire, says the Phila delphia Press. . . v ': . ' ' The government of Honduras1 gave no valid reason for stopping the exca vations, and the custodians of the Pea body exploration fund hope to be able to get permission to resume work next year, as the prohibition seems to be only the result of a temporary freak on the part of the native officials-. Meantime a wall has been built around a part of the city and watchmen, living in huts amid the ruined palaces of for gotten kings, keep away natives who might deface and destroy the elabo rate stone carvings and sculptures. The history of Copan is written on numerous columns and the walls- of the palaces and temples, but no man as yet can read the inscriptions. Arch aeologists of the Peabody museum have, however, mastered the calendar of the vanished people, and, with this as a starting point, are gradually mak ing progress toward the acquisition of a knowledge of the language of the f or eotten enmire. Not a. Full Meal. "Of course you're seeking fame," they said to the literary man. "Yes," he replied with unexpected wisdom, "but only as an entree.

The Powers Also Notified That This Government 'Will Not Remain , Passive If Rights of Ameri can Ships Are Molested. WASHINGTON, Dec. 16. Secretary Hay, after a conference with President Roosevelt, ' has written a note to Ger many and England, asking for an ex planation of the bombardment of the forts at Puerto Cabello. The note in quires what is expected to be gained by this action. In view of the fact that a warship of Great Britain assisted in the bombard ment of the forts it is regarded as very significant. - ' It is known that the. policy outlined to the United States by Great Britain and Germany, did not contemplate the b6mbardment of any Venezuelan forts and at the most was to be a peaceful blockade of the ports. Chairman Hitt of the committee on foreign affairs of the house is opposed to favorably reporting any of the reso lutions regarding .Venezuela V' which have been introduced. He believes that should the Shafroth resolution be fa vorably reported it would result in all European governments looking to the United States as the guarantor of the debts of South and Central American states. ' Secretary Hay has notified the gov ernments of Germany and Great Brit ain that the administration will not re main impassive in Venezuela if the rights of American ships are interfered with. ' " ' . ...'' , The German government informed the United States that when the block ade was established it would turn back all shipping, though no "effort .would be made to seize the ships. The United States government made no response to this statement at the time (last year), not feeling ealled upon to do so before the presentation of an actual case. ; But now that the blockade is sought to be established Secretary Hay has informed the German government that American ships should not be inter fered with in their trading except the inhibition applies to, all shipping, and, further, the note intimates a disap proval of stoppage at all. In so doing the state department is following ' a precedent, for during the efforts of the powers -to establish a "peaceful block ade" of Crete in 1S96 Secretary Sher man formally recorded a refusal to be bound by it. . It happened that no American ship had occasion to enter a Cretan port during the brief " period of time the blockade was in force, so the issue (was not made then, but in the present case, with regular lines of American steam ers entering Venezuelan ports at short intervals, a test case must soon follow. It is within the legal right of the allies to close these ports. 1 But probably - this can . be accom plished without protest on our part on ly after a formal declaration of war. The hope Is growing here that such a declaration can, after all, be avoided owing to the energy with which Mr. Bowen has acted. The proposal of President Castro to" the allied powers for a peaceful settlement was suggest ed by -Mr. Bowen, and it came to the state department through his hands. It has been forwarded . to London and Berlin through the embassies here, and as both Great Britain and Ger many have heretofore professed a de sire to settle the issues peaceably it is hoped that they will avail themselves of this opportunity. NOW IT'S "PING POODLE." New Game vrlth Which Suburbanites - Ammse Themselves on tb. Train Going Home. Have you ever pla3"ed "ping poodle?" If you are a commuter and don't know- anything about the game you nreibehind the. times. .Most of the suburbanites' are now) indulging - in "ping poodle" with as much enthusi asm as they formerly displayed ovei their games of whist or pitch, reports a Chicago exchange. "Ping poodle", is simply an elabora tion of that venerable child's game, known as "spots." A square is made with any given number of spots in it. Then these spots' are , .made into smaller . squares by means of pencil marks. The man who has to fill out the last square loses the game., On the suburban trains each spot usually counts for five cents, and the loser must pay . the winner the sum of the spots. If there are 64 spots in a square, the man who makes the last pencil mark must produce $3.20. The other, day a nunilr of railroad men were playing'ping poodle?' when a suburbanite who lives at the farth est station on the loal division ap peared. When the game had been ex plained to him he insist edupon play ing 12S instead of 64 spots. It was an hour before the game was finished, and then the new-comer found that he owed his opponent just $6.40. But the veteran "ping poodler" had passed his own station during the .excitement of the game, : and as he was unable to catch" an incoming train, he was obliged to spend the night with his victim, who after much persuasion finally agreed" not to pay his loss. Heidelberg's Asteroids. It is an interesting fact that the old University of Heidelberg has within recent years- taken the lead of all other centers of astronomical observation in the discovery of asteroids, or minor planets. Of the 36 new asteroids found in, 1901,- all but one were discovered at Heidel berg. The photographic plate has entirely superseded the human eye' in these discoveries. This fact ; is mainly due to the extreme faintness of the asteroids that are now being picked up. Dr. Bauschinger esti mates that very few of thes'e bodies brighter than the tenth magnitude remain to be discovered, but the number of fainter ones showf no -i-" x5cian.- Science. THE GLENN TRIAL. Generals Chaffee and Smith to Be .. Summoned. MANILA, Dec. 16. The court mar j tlal which 1s to try Major Edwin F. Glenn of the Fifth infantry has decid-: ed to' summon Generals Chaffee and Smith from the United States to testi fy as to orders, giyen" during the con duct of the campaign on the island of Samar and to the character of : the campaign waged there. . ; The court martial was organized yes terday, and Major .Glenn was ar raigned. The formal ; charge against the major is that he unlawfully and willfully killed seven prisoners of war to the, prejudice of good order and mili tary discipline and in violation of the sixty-second article of war. -.Major Glenn first, entered a special plea denying the jurisdiction of the court on the ground that it lacked power to try a prisoner charged with murder in times of peace. Judge Ad vocate Godier denied that Major Glenn was charged with ' murder, and the court overruled the objection. Major Glenn then pleaded not guilty. The defense submitted a request ask ing the court to summon four witnesses, Including Generals Chaffee and Smith, from the United, States. This request was granted.; The prosecution . then asked for an adjournment owing to the nonarrival of certain witnesses ' from Samar. This point was not decided . , "Captain W. C. Rogers of the Twenty seventh Infantry is being tried before the Glenn court martial today. Captain Rogers is charged ' with using disre spectful language to , General Davis and other officers. He applied for leave, which was denied. It is alleged that the captain thereupon created a scene in General Davis' anteroom. . To Test Torpedo Boats. . SAN JUAN, Porto Rico, Dee. 16. Admiral Dewey, commanding the bat tleship fleet, with the exception of the Massachusetts, sailed for Culebra yes-s terday morning and engaged the ves sels in tactical evolutions. The war ships returned here' at 4 o'clock. These evolutions are preliminary to the great exercises which are to follow the holi days. The details of .the blockade, problem are announced. The torpedo boats inside of Great harbor will steal out and attack the battleships lying not-less than two miles distant. Judges will be appointed to determine which side is victorious. The value of torpe do boats will thus t be ' demonstrated, nnd the commanders are confident that the prejudice against this type of yes sel will be swept away as a result of. their behavior. .

The president, will take no action on the death of Mrs Grant beyond the sending of a handsome ; floral piece from the White House conservatories, couveying an 'expression of his grief and that of Mrs. Roosevelt. - "' Speed, of Racing Camel-. The racing camel is ; very carefully ored and valuable prizes are oif ered by a racing society at Biskra for the fleetest racer. I have seen the start of a race and it 'reminded me, in a far off sort of way, of a horse race. .The camels were all arranged in line and., they sniffed the !air in their anxiety to be off. A flag was waved and they set off at a terrible pace, as if they were only racing for a short distance., They kept together until they were almost out of sight. Then they seemed to settle down to their habitual pace and the. race proceeded with long in tervals between the competitors. I have also seen the finish of a camel race, and it reminded me of the first motor car promenade between London and Brighton. The camels were cer tainly not so broken down and bedrag gled, but they came in at intervals of several hours and great patience was necessary to watch them arrive. Pearson's Magazine. .

Senate Measure For a Union Railway Station at Wash ingt on to Cost $4,000,O00; Also -the Indian Allotment Bill. ' WASHINGTON, Dec. 16. The ' sen ate yesterday discussed the bill to pro mote the efficiency of the militia and also the omnibus statehood bill. After agreement to the concurrent resolution of the house for an adjournment from Dec. 20 to Jan. 5, Mr.. Proctor called up the militia bill. An amendment by Mr. Pettus striking from the bill section 24, having particular reference to the re serve force of trained men, provoked some discussion, Mr. Pettus raising the point that the section if enacted into law would be an infringement of the constitutional authority of the states and put the control of the militia of he, several states into the hands of the general government. After a brief 'executive session the senate adjourned. ' ' The house passed the senate bill for a union railroad station in this city to cost $4,000,000. The station is to be sit uated north of the present site of the Baltimore and Ohio depot at Delaware and Massachusetts avenues, and in front of it is to be a large plaza park. The Pennsylvania railroad by'the terms of the bill is to remove its tracks from the mall and reach the site of the pro posed station through a tunnel to, run between the capitol and Library build ing. The government is to pay the Pennsylvania railroad $1,500,000 and the Baltimore and Ohio $500,000 in ad dition to providing for the plaza park. The house also passed an urgent defi ciency bill which carried among other items an appropriation of $500,000 for eradicating the foot and mouth disease in New England. A bill was passed to provide for the allotment in severalty of the lands of the New York Indians. The bill provided that prior to the allot ment the claim of the Ogden Land com pany should be decided in the courts, and if found good ' it should be pur chased for the benefit of the Indians for a sum not exceeding $200,000. ; ' . The ' house judiciary committee gave a hearing on the proposed amendment changing the date of the inauguration to the last Thursday in April. Repre sentative Parker (N. J.), who made an investigation of the. whole subject for the committee, proposed an amendment to the pending resolutions' fixing Dec. 1 as the date for the beginning and end ing of congress and Jan.'l as inaugura tion day. The committee took no final action. Damages For Death of Italians. WASHINGTON, Dec. 16.
