Good Men Get ,From $18 to $20 and : Board a Month. . ... . . Farm hands, are in big demand just now arid judging by the way things are going in the shops :lt ;Wuhi seem that an able-bodid man ' who is not tied down m that he cannot afford. to live in the country would make no mi take in getting onto a farm. A good man can get $18 or $20 a month for eight months and $15 a month for , the balance' of the year. 1 This, of course, includes board a nd washing. A t this price a f teady ni.nn could save in the neighborhood of $200 a. year, .which Is far more thaw the oi-dinary wage earn er can lay by who is- working in a fac tory for $1.50 or. $1.75 a day. And it is aid that the right man can do .bet ter, than the figures, quoted, but r It is admitted that any' farm hand who is not too lazy to work and who does not want to" make trip? Into the city too often can find lots of employmexit on farms not far from .Waterbury from now until winter sets .In; and if he didn't care to keep -at it during the win ter he inight.be able to secure a job at something else for the rest of the year. If not. he would have eaoueh ahead to pay hig bmard for four; or five months and .have $100 left to his cred it. The trouble with farming is that few ctare to tiT.it and bp-sides' it is said belo often experience much diflculty In collecting their wages. COAD.IUTOR BISHOPS. Rev J. ,T.

The strikers' executive comrnittee issued the following statement this af ternoon : : ! '"' This is the eighty-sizth day of ' our strike and finds our men, ; as usual, standing "shoulder to shoulder." Our firm standing in the ranks has become so' well known; now as to be almost on every lip, and 6ome theatrical manager may yet have to pay us a royalty for presenting a famous drama entitled Shoulder to Shoulder." - ' We received this morning a very en couraging communication from Presi dent Mahori of our organization. He says it is a pity we cannot get our side of ' the ' present difficulty sent out through the country by the j)ress, and states that only the company's side of the controversy is given notice. He remarks that he will do everything In his power to aid Us in winning our struggle, which he firmly believes is a battle for righteousness. When the people fully realize how we have been wronged, he says, our position will be greatly strengthened aJid right will prevail in the end. President Mahon may. possibly visit Waterbury in the near future again. - "Keep a stiff up per lip" bis letter implies, "and I will back you to the end." - As we have stated time and time again, we have carried on our battle on the square throughout,, and at all times have been willing to meet the company on honest grounds. On the other hand, the company has used ev ery means In its V power by- hook or crook to break our ranks. Everybody remembers the time the stories were circulated that twenty or thirty of our men wanted to go back on the old conditions. The company asked that a secret ballot be taken on thSr matter, thinking that If there were some weak . ones in our union. , they could back out behind the secret bal lot. We took that ballot secretly, as is already known, and the result showed every, man willing to stand and fight for their rights. Again,' the company asked to have another committee of our; men beside hie executives committee; treat with them, i They i. gave us to understand that, they wanted Frank Miller put on., We were onto that game,but in order to show our fearlessness, we put Miller on that committee, and compelled him to act or pay a fine of $10. When he met with the company's officials, he was afraid to show his hand, however, thereby sorely, disappointing the com pany. The next day he returned like the prodigal son and went to work as car starter, We . evidently were too close onto his trail. ' The public can see from the forego ing what we have been up against with this mighty corporation, compos ed of stockholders , who care no more for the suffering public of Waterbury or its interests than they do for tem perance drinks. ' From- the beginning we have seen no evidence of good faith shown by the company. ; We have al ways had to be on our guard lest they entrap us into' some deal or other. The company even shows a disposi tion to be angry because we see fit to give out to the public dally statements showing the status of the case from our; standpoint. ; We actually believe they are jealous. because they are un able, to do likewise themselves for lack of material. We will continue, how ever, to present our daily statement in the future as In the past. One of the meanest efforts to place our cause In an unfavorable light was the action of the company's officials in endeavoring to convince President Ma hon that we went out on strike before making any demands upon the com pany. Our ; executive committee was called before that onlclal, however, and the lie nailed dead s a door nail. Despite the many barriers placed in our pathway, all of the men yesterday received their usual weekly, wages. Attorney Thorns was bail for Wo cott before his trial and Wolcott ex pected ha would give bonds for him to-day. But he was disappointed .and it was reported this 'afternoDn that unless someone gives toad fcr;, h. m. he threatens to tell all lie knows about the matter.

You Are Not In Control tee, Said 0;Neiir-Judge Peasley Held All Under ?2,000 Each. StriKe Notes To-day. . Attorney Joha O'Neill and Prosecu- find ball.'aaid ordered them flstir.t tor Durant had a very lively tilt Jn the city court to-day, before Judge Peasley, while arguing the matter of bonds ia the continued cases against Erwlu Wok cott, , William Costello, .James , and Thomas Quinn, James AVhitty, Joseph Kelly, Stephen Ball, Michael , Ryan, Charles Thorpe, Thomas Kenny- and James Bnnls, who are charged with as saulting the strike breakers, Merna and Morrissette, with Intent to murder them. At first Prosecutor Durant would have only Wolcott, Costello and James Quinn bound over. b He was not ready ; to go on with the other cases and asked to have them .continued for thirty, days. Mr O'Neill was not satis fled, with this arrangement. He was appointed guardian for all of them, and he dldnot care to have to come ,to court whenever the prosecutor wished to have him. Tlie; same evidence as was given. In the cases against the strikers who have been bound over would apply to these cases, and he wished -them disposed of. So far as the. cases .against. Costello and Quinn were concerned he had nothing to say; they could be bound over, but as to the question of a bond h wished to " be h.eard. He then-said he would have the other cases against Whitty, Kelly, Thomas Quinn, Ball, Ryan, Thorpe, Kenny and Ennis disposed of also. He did not care to be coming to court every day and the cases could be disposed of now as well as later. He wanted the accused. bound over or discharged. Mr Duraut said he was not obliged to state what his reasons were for wish ing to have the cases put over, and Mr O'Neill said proMbly he was not, but the constitution of the statle gave the accused th right, ito a speedy trjAl. He did not know if the constitution , had any rights In the city court or If Mr Durant cared anything about It, but If the prosecutor, had any good . rea son for asking that the cases be adjourned he could not' object to It being made public. As for bonds, Mr C-Netll saJd he would have no trouble in getting a "bond for all.: , Judge Peasley remarked there was evidence ' nought o bind the ' accused over if there was no further evidence. " Mr O'Neill reminded the court that the complaint was assault with intent to murder."- i ' A5' "' ,' ' . ' ' . Mr-Durant then asked Mr O'Neill If he appeared for all the accused In the relation of guardian ad litum, and Mr O'Neill said he believed he did, but he did not know all of his wards. Mr Meigs, assistant counsel for the state, thought this was very irregular. Some of the accused had not been put to plea and some of them, therefore, had not been given guardians. , , . Mr O'Neill said he did not know who were his wards and who were not and then he went among the accused and found that lie had been appointed guardian for all of , them . excepting Wolcott, who is not a minor. The ages of the" others range from 18 to IS years. This raised a great deal of bother from the minds of the prose cutors'and to see that no mistake should be made, all were put ; to plea and all pleaded not guilty. Then came the tilt between Mr O'Neill and Mr Durant. ' - ; ; 1 Mr Durant asked that a bond of $2, 000 be imposed in each . case, for it was taken for , granted, at ? least it seemed to be so, that each would be bound over to the superior court. ; Mr O'Neill said that the bond ia the first, in the cases of , the others who have been , bound over, was nothing less than an outrage. It was out of all proportion to the evidence given." All of the accused In the cases under discussion were boys, mere boys, and what did they do, according to evi dence? Nothing whatsoever, but went to see others do something or other, "have a little fun with the trolleymen, do something against the law. That Is what they did," said Mr O'Neill. "I say," he went on, "that they are kept here to phase and terrify them; they are kept here to be bulldozed and frightened to death. They have been promised one thing and' another to tell all they know" " " "Who made promises?" ejaculated Mr Durant. "I did not, and you can't say that I did." -.. "Oh, you don't run all this. You are not in control here," said Mr O'Neill. Then he went on to say that promises had been made. They were made by Colonel Burpee, by Detective Dodds and Lunny. They were told that if they told all they knew about this matter thev would get off lightly, that they would be let out. Now Lim ny gave bail for them when they were arrested and he ought to be accepted now. You want a bond Imposed large enough to keep them in Jail, where you can get at, them but we can't. You want them all to yourself. Now. if the trolleymen are guilty. T hone thev will be severely punished, but the get ting of evidence against them by bull dozing these boys, scaring them, fright en'ng.them to death " i" Mr Durant Interjected somethine which was lost In the noise, and Mr O'Neill, reaching over the table, shout ed : - 4 "Did you hear that your honor? He said he wanted a bond that would keep them as witnesses." Judge Peasley's reply was that there was probable cause and he would bind the accused over under bouds of $2,000 each, He gaY toea Xmtll 2 o'clock KG in custody meanwhile.

The number of people riding has not exceeded expectations. It was not ex. pected-.that the cars would remain lu nored entirely. The calculations of th strikers have so far not been disrupted. sA strange rumor was In clrcnlatln-i this morning. - Part f it is true. It was that two men who were employed in the clock factory haye taken posi. tlons a8 strike breakers. This is th pau J the rumr that is true. TD- othef part is that factory foreraen;hav been enlisted in the Interests of th? company and are running individual employment bureaus to. provide afru for the cars, without relng;, anyfee for getting them -work. This malces five local men engaged in tho workof fighting their fellow citizens tea f keep doaai wages. . ( . , A policeman ; told the writer la t evening that the trolley company ha a list of . twenty-five ' applicants Tor ' work ; There was no means at hand I this forenoon of inquiring into this re- port; neither Colonel Bui-pee nor Man- t ager Sewell could be found.1 Factory ' foremen could give the company con- ' siderable assistance by recommend lu men to it who applied to them foT work. It Is said that this is the way the-' foremen ' are" paying the , company for the free tickets they have been us ing all the winter. f Regarding these free tickets, friends of the company laugh at the idea. But the report, nevertheless, is said to be true. The latest phase came to light last evening. "A certain official rode to Waterville the other evening on a paid fax-e. There .were twelve passengers, and only two fares were indicated oat ;' the register. The official, who was not known to the conductor, asked the lat ter why h had not rung up fares fo all the passengers, and the jconductoi told him In language; that would have cause his discharge were there , n -strike on,-to mind bis own buslnea' Upon reaching Waterville the condnc tor said that if the "mug" was not too fresh he would have told him that hs had orders only to ring up paid fares. -i There seems to be no change In the strike situation itself, nor is there an$ further developments from police oCi clajs expected very soon. This va: the appearance of the situation thi forenoon. Detective Rogers and Af torney Meigs, who seem to be gettUis deeper Into the contest every day, at Detective Dodds had a long talk in !r forenoon. They were evidently disaif pointed' In not finding Colonel Burp at his office. . Still there may be dev ' ments at any moment Detective Itf ers and Sheriff Rigney and James L ny had a very busy afternoon Saturd A great many are under the imp . s ton that a hearing in the lnjuncf will take place In the local supef court , this week. In this they are; tlrely wrong. The Injunction will I until it is dissolved, no matter how I that. may be. And the suit again?? strikers and their unions for $21 is returnable to the court on the I Tuesday in June and after that! the defense has thirty days in W; to answer, demur or take-whateve totlon it pleases.
