PRlbE TWO CENTS. ANOTHER STRIKE BREAKER HAS QUIT. Ifl VOL. XVI. NO. 78. LIVED HAVE THE WOMAN IN THE CAS t 'B GORM'S BOOST. His Election Yesterday Puts Him in Line For Presidency. 10 MOULDERS WENT OUL Because The Lights Were Trim med By Non-Union Men. Didn't Like The Way Things Were Running Here. LEFT CAP MARKED H. R. R. Said the Strikers Might Like It for a Souvenir He Says He Thought the Strike Was Off When He Came Here ; More Than Half the Men Now Housed at Car Barns Want to See Men Wln-The Strikers Issue Their Fifty-eighth Statement Frank L. Martfn, all the way from Cincinnati, O. A was a caller at the Democrat office at noon to-day. He dropped In to say that he was a strike breaker on the trolley road for the past two weeks, not because he' wanted to be, but for the reason that necessity compelled him to make the best he could of a very uncomfortable position. He wa brdught here with the under standing that the strike was settled, that many of the old hands had se cured Jobs elsewhere and the company was endeavoring to get competent men to fill their places. When he got here he found that the strike was still on, and having no money, he wast obliged to take up quarters in the car barn and put up with things as they came until he could do better. He hoped to be able to stand it until he had earned enough to take his home, but It was more than he could stand and he kicked in the traces this morning against "Boss" Farley's rule and got out. He wished to state to the people of Wa terbury that he is as good as they make them, no union man nor yet a scab. He never would have come here had he known his fellow men were en - gaged in a struggle with a rich corpora tion to receive a fair day's pay In re turn for an honest day's labor. He had money sufficient to pay his fare half way home and preferred to trust to luck the rest of the Journey rather than remain' bere and earn the balance as a strike-breaker. "Here," he said, as he reached the door on the way out, "I'll 'leave that as a souvenir of my visit to Waterbury," at the same time'tossing the reporter a bundle he carried in his hand. The parcel contained a cap let tered , "II; ,. R. It." He was a bright, clever appearing fellow, and appeared In' no way fearful that he would get 'stranded on the way home. On bis vest he sported a Red Men's badge and the Insignia of one or two other popu . lar organizations, among them the A; Q, U. W. .. He thought the local strike the toughest a corporation ever tried to batter down, not because of any vio lence that had occurred, but on account of the support given the men who quit on the part of the people, and was con fident that if .nothing occurs to turn public sentiment against the strikers they are sure to gain something, not all they ought v, perhaps, but some thing which will make things pleasant er for them than ever before. He said he was not the only, friend the, strikers had on the cars since tne trouble start ed, and added that more than half the men nowj in the company's employ would be pleased to, 'see the strikers win. Most of them are nomads and wouldn't take up a permanent resi dence here anyway. ' "You can't get an East Sider to locate in a town like this," he remarked, with a haughty toss of . his head, which seemed to im ply that the East Side is a wonderful place. ' ; . ' The following daily statement was lssue3 by, the strikers' executive com mittee to-day: "The 56th day finds the boys Jubi lant over the returns of Brother Dill worth, chairman of the national execu tive board after a hurried trip to Bos ton and vicinity, also New York city, Brooklyn, and South Bend Ind. Brother Dlllworth returns with , encouraging reports to all interested in our craft. "Plans have been unfolded to us whereby a stock A company is to bo formed for the purpose of purchasing a larger number of automobiles than we had planned on getting. The stock will be issued to the- amount sufficient to purchase and operate them. The stock will be confined to union men, the num ber of shares each will be allowed to hold will be decided later. VWe understand that the molders employed at the Manufacturers' Foun dry on Benedict street quit work yes terday afternoon refusing to work in n shop Jit by lights that were trimmed by non-union workmen. , "President Gompers of the Federa tion of Labor and President Mahon of the National Association of Street Rail way Employes of America are in con ference in New York city. If all the newspaper reports are true there may be something doing in that vicinity before the bluebirds go south again. "We still continue to receive dona tions from parties interested in our cause." N The usual lawyer-written statement was issued by the strikers to-day. Hartford Courant. The cap left at the Democrat office by Frank Martin, the strike breaker, who left for his home to-day, is now in possession of the strikers. They in tend to have it framed and marked "All that's left of one Farleylte." The new auto which attracted so much attention upon the streets the past few days was put out of business temporarily on West Main street last, night. The steeling gear went wrong and the machine had to be taken to a repair shop. It was loaded with pas sengers at the time, but all Were ac commodated on the 'buses. . Motorman Mernaj who was assaulted and badly Injured by masked men in Waterville a few nights ago, was being driven about town to-day by Agent Farley. He looked rather funny with the hair on the front part of his head closely" shaven and a big block of hair on the back of his head. There was a traveling bag in the carriage and it was said that 'Xierna was being driven to the station preparatory to hi "3 arture for home. WORK OF LEGISLATORS. Members Are Now Getting Down to Real Business of Session. Hartford, March 7. The Comley Bridgeport Judgeship was the main question before the general assembly this week, and it managed to stir up the most" serious, if not sensational, fight over a court Judge's election In the recent history of the Connecticut legislature. Charges of i?5lrious kinds were hurled back and forth between the contesting parties early in the fight, and some Very bitter things were said bv leaders in the debate in both houses. Last week, it will be remem bered, the house recommitted the re port appointing Judge Comley to com mittee. Tuesday of this week the re publican leaders in the senate took up the matter and rushed the election through in spite of strong opposition from the democratic senators. This sent the. matter back tothe house on Wednesday, and after a prolonged and bitter debate,, in which the democratic opposition was shut off by the previous question, the election was Confirmed. Judge Banks of Fairfield, the leader or the republican side of the house, did not remain In his seat during the, debate, and so did mot vote. At first a question that the democratic opposi tion attempted to make a non-partisan affair, it became, at the final vote, a strictly party vote, the entire republi can contingent In the house, filling three out of the four divisions on the floor, unanimously standing by the committee. V The deadlock that has existed for several weeks over the reference of the bill repealing the general railroad law was broken on Thursday by the action of the senate in withdrawing from the reference to the railroad committee de cided upon in that branch, and con curring with the house in referring the matter to .the Judiciary committee. The expected fight in. the legislature over this matter will therefore come before the Judiciary instead of the railroad committee, ." In spite of the favorable action of the house this week in passing a bill extending the last date for the election of a representative from any town from the first of February to the first of April, in order that Bethlehem can seat a new representative in place of Mr Hayes, deceased,- it is not at all certain that this step will be taken. Senator Walsh held' it up In the upper house on Thursday, claiming that if was' altogether too general a provision to pass without investlcatlon. anl It is expected that when it comes up for fi nal action there will be some discus sion in the senate. r The committee hearinis-9 urged along rapidly now by the vari ous chairmen, with the end In view to wing tne session to a close by the mid dle of May. Something of the measures 'before this legisla ture navenow beeirdisposed of, and, unless the general railroad bill and the representation matter take a great deal of time the outlook is for an unusually early, 'adjournment. N ? The legislature will .' this coming week get down to 10:30 sessions, a mo tion to that effect having passed on Thursday. Tuesdav n 11 fin nl Ha oaou sions will open at 12:30. TRYING TO SETTLE IT. Company Will Not Recognize Union ' Will Take Men Back. Vancouver, B. C March 7. A com mittee of - the Vancouver board of trade has had several conferences with the Canadian Faclflc strikers in the hope of mediation, with the result that conditions of settlement h Interchanged between the strikers and me company. The strikers demand the return to work of all peaceable em ployes and no discrimination against the union. The company i3 willing that the strikers return to work, as indi viduals, and that none should be sub jected to discharge for anything that may have occurred prior to the strike. The company, however, declares that it will not recognize the United Brother hood of Railway Employes. Meantime the tieup of the Canadian Pacific rail way and steamship "bUsiness continues.

Home. Nellie Fletcher Who Met Her Death in New York, Tthe Woman Lived in Chicago for .Nearly a Year Her Departure from Chicago Hastened By Parents of Man Who Had Assisted Her. Chicago, March 7. The question, "Who was Nellie Fletcher, and was she the victim of an unknown poisoner in New York?" was answered, in umeago laat night so far as her identity is con cerned, While developments here throw no iicht on how the young woman met death in a New York boarding house early this week, they reveal that ner homo was in New Haven, Conn, ana that she is supposed to have been mar ried several years ago to a man witn whom she did not live lone, returning to the home of her mother in New Ha ven.'''' ',: ,- W also is revealed that Mrs Fletcher, who was 26 years old, came to Chicago late last June, and until Friday, Feb ruary 27, lived at the Empress hotel. North Clark and Maple streets.,; , On the day of her departure she said she was going to New York to visit friends. The information concerning Mrs Fletcher cornea largely from Alfred Manlerre, 24 years old, of No 61.Belle vue place, who became acquainted with her while he was a student at Yale. When he was graduated last June, Mrsi Fletcher accompanied him to Chicago and at his suggestion se cured rooms in the Empress hotel, where she remained till her departure for New York. Mr Manierro says he assisted the young woman in paying lHfc." expenses and also gave her money on a number of occasions to enable Iher to' obtain medical treatment. According to Mr Manlerre, Mrs Fletcher assisted, in supporting hers'elf by working when her health would permit. ' V Mrs Fletcher's' departure from Chi cago was the" direct result of her ac tions on Wednesday, February 25, two days before she left for New York. On that day she visited the home of Mr Manlerre's parents, Mr and 'Mrs George Manlerre, No 61 Bellevue place. ' , Just what happened at the interview Is not known, but Mrs Fletcher left the Manlerre residence soon after, and then came a, number: of conferences between members of the Manlerre family.- Later Mrs Fletcher was commun icated with and an- arrangement was made whereby she was to leave for New York, which she did. N' -.- . New Haven. March 7. Nellie Fletcher was the daughter of Mrs Catherine Fletcher of Olive street of this city. Her two brothers, Charles, employed in a factory, and John, a rail road fireman, learned to-day of the girl's death, and after a family confer ence Charles went to New York to make arrangements for the disposal of the body. Members of the family au thorized the statement that the girl had not been , home in severa.1 years. They knew nothing of the girl's ac quaintance , with Alfred Manierre, a Yale, student. . Several years 'ago she married a drug'clerk by the name of J. Mautte, who secured a divorce from her. LITTLE PRINCE IN TEARsl Praying for Ills Mother's feeturn Tu tor Thought He Was Abducted. Dresden, Saxony, March 7. Little Prince George, eldest eon of Crown Prince Frederick, was missing from the palace yesterday and for several hours his tutors and, the household of ficials were in consternation. Thefa vorite rumor was that the prince had been abducted by agents of ids moth er; the former crown princess, Loud se, but the boy was found praying in the cathedral that 'his mother mlgjit return; he was in agony of tears and supplica tions. , , The socialists are using the crown princess episode for political agitation, and the unpopularity of the Saxon monarchy appears to have been consid erably heightened. The carriage of Princess Mathllde. sister of fEe crown prince, was surrounded by a crowd in Wilsdruffer-Strasse. one of the princi pal shopping streets of Dresden, one day last week, and cries of "Give us our Louise" were raised.

THE DEMOCRATS LOOK TO HIM To Unite the Party and Bring Waver ing Factions Together-Republlcans Also Expect He Will Take Stand on! Several Bills Now Before Congress Which Will Be for Their Interest. Washington, March 7. It will be the work of Senator Arthur P. Gorman to bring together the various factions in the minority and outline a policy for his 1 party which will have a guiding control over the senators who yester day selected him for their leader. It is understood that Mr Gorman will out line his policy with a view to shaping the policy of the party in the campaign of 1904, when he may be the candidate for president. But whether he shall be the candidate or not, his friends in the east expect him to so unify the party in the senate as to make It pos sible for the conservative democrats to control the next national convention and shape the democratic 'issues for that campaign. . - Mr Gorman is not hostile to either of the two great treaties now before the senate for ratification. He recognizes that it is suicidal for the democrats to oppose or delay the ratification of the canal treaty, and it Is said that ho will use his Influence to curtail the debate on that treaty, and bring it to a vote as early as possible. The one ' demo crat who is openly opposing the treaty is Mr Morgan, and while Mr Gorman has little sympathy with that , opposi tion he will ' Insist that the Alabama senator shall have ample opportunity to express his views and not be put to the inconvenience of speaking In con tinuous session. The republicans are not disposed to force Mr Morgan to a test of physical endurance, as they now have ample time to consider the treaty and will allow him to speak as long as he desires. The treaty will be ratified when Mr Morgan has concluded his speech and is satisfied to allow a vote. Senator Gorman is said to be in favor of the ratification of the Cuban reci procity, treaty, or at least of placing no embarrassment in Its way but of al lowing the republican administration to carry out its policy and accept full re sponsibility: for it.' He realizes that there is a division among republican senators regarding this treaty, and it is said he will counsel the, democrats to withdraw their opposition and allow the republicans ' to settle their own quarrel over reciprocity in their own way and accept whatever embarrass ment may follow the ratification of this treaty. Some of the democrats are not disposed to follow Mr Gorman's advice but having chosen him for a leader they will no doubt allow him to outline the policy of the minority in the senate. The republican leaders are, therefore, satisfied that the Cuban reciprocity treaty will be ratified after a reason able debate and that those republicans who have secretly aided the democrats in delaying it will now come into the open and stand with the administration" in favor of ratification. Senator Aldrich maintains that the treaty -Is stronger in the new senate than it was In the old and that it will have the necessary two-1 thirds vote for ratification and several votes to spare. The only embarrassment to the Cuban treaty is that the time for its ratification expires March 31 and the time may have to be . extended. That, however, can easily be done by the state department, as Cuba is now as anxious for the ratification of this treaty as is this government. N The steering committee named con sists of Senators Gorman. Maryland; Cockrell. Missouri; 1 Matrin. Virginia; Bacon, Georgia ; Money, Mississtppi ; Bailey, Texas; Blackburn, Kentucky; and Tillman, South Carolina. The new members are Messrs Gorman, Blackburn and Tillman. HICCOUGHS CAUSED DEATH.
