I "There is more work to be done by i those local merchants who have held meetings to take action on boycotting. Despite the fact that laboring men like , ourselves are and always have been the mainstay and support and enrich ; pent of those merchants, they saw fit to band, themselves together, that is aome of them did. and decided to ride on the cars. Thu. they said, the bov rotting will be broken "up and we have saved our country. Those gentlemen "tondly proclaime'd that they were not unfriendly to labor. Thev simnlv took the action they did to show their disap proval of intimidation of any kind and to prove that here Is a country where men could do as they saw fit without . fear or favor. ."Now. gentlemen of the alliances. here Is a chance for you to show your sincerity in your-statement that you i were simply banded together to crush .' - nut Intimidation. A local paner as I published the statement that th Wa 4'tbury Clock Co hired a man and then ( -discharged him because they ascer i talned he had worked on the cars 'and ; beloneed to our union.

Where has the pressure been brought from? How long will the people of Water- bury and of the state stand the imposi tions of corporation greed.' We nave seen our rill of it here in Waterbury since the strike, but we were given a further example in Harttord yesieraaj.

MRS MARTHA BREAZELA: Wife of Professor at Rutger's College Jumped Overboard. New York, April 15 Little doubt is entertained here that Mrs Martha Ham ilton Breazeale, wife of William E. Breazeale, associate professor of math ematics in Rutger's college, committed suicide by jumping overboard from .the Joy line steamer Tremont in the mid die of Long Island sound Monday night. Trof Breazeale and his brother-in- law, R. W. Prentiss, were at the Joy line pier to-day. when the Tremont ar rived. They identified the hat, cloak and other articles left in the cabin of the Tremont by a woman who gave the name of Mrs Brown, and who is believed to have jumped overboard from the toilet room window, as hav ing belonged to Mrs Breazeale. Mr Prentiss said : - "There is no ques tion that the woman . who disappeared from the boat was Mrs Breazeale. The letter received by her husband Mon day said that her body would be found in Long Island sound.' Mrs Breazeale was suffering from ill- health and melancholia.

Hotel Porter's Wireless Telegraphy. I have just made a discovery, knowledge of which may be of con siderable value to travelers and tour ists. It is that there exists among hotel porters on the continent a sys tem of wireless telegraphy by which the characteristics of a visitor in the matter of tips are communicated from one hotel to another. The me dium of communication is the hotel label pasted on the visitor's luggage, and the code is formed by varying the angle at which the label is placed. In one position the label means that the guest is worth cultivating and may be relied on for liberal ac knowledgment of services rendered; m another that special attention be stowed upon him will be entirely wasted: How far the system prevails I cannot say, but I am satisfied that it exists. Travelers, therefore, who find themselves treated in the hotels thev visit should lose no time in cleaning the labels off their trunks.. London Truth. Ills Predicament. Pa"rker What's wrong?

Went Off in Catboat on Monday Af ter noon With Friend. New Haven, April 15. Nothing had been heard thi.s morning of Lester C. Barton of Chicago, the Yale freshman who has been missing since Monday afternoon, When he went with a friend for a sail in the harbor. The identity of his friend, who is supposed to have been a fellow student, has not been learned. It is known that Barton in tended to return to the University Mon day evening, and it is feared that the boat capsized. ' The boat, which they hired from James1 A. Austin, was an eighteen-foot catboat, .named the TTnio. According to Mr Austin, the young men Intended simply to take a sail in the harbor, but late Monday afternoon a. craft answer-, lag the description of the Unio was seen laboring in the heavy sea off Mil ford. Last night the owner of the boat made a trip along shore to Bridgeport in search of the missing boat, but was unable to find any trace of her. . He fears that the Unio capsized and that the men have bien lost, although he says the boat.wa a seaworthy one and hafT twice made the trip to Boston and return. Classmates of Barton were endeavor ing to-day to ascertain the name of his companion. The fact that many men are absent for the Easter recess, how ever, makes it difficult to determine his identity. Beyond the fact tht he was tall and wore a red striped sweater, the description given by the boat owner is meaere. Efforts were made tnis morninir to -get some news of the boat hv communicating with points aiong the Connecticut, and Long Island shores of the Sound, i . ' RAIN FOR NATIONAL LEAGUE.

A Doc's Fidelity. The proverbial fidelity of the dog is illustrated in a story which comes from England. Among the daily crowd of early morning bathers in Queensmere pond, Putney Heath, was a boy escort ed by a faithful little Irish terrier. It was the custom of the dog, while his master took his dip, to 6it on the edge of the lake and keep watch over his clothing. The little terrier was no ticed long after the bathers had gonet patiently keeping' guard. For more than five hours he lay there. The next day told, the story of hfe solitary watch, when the dead body of his young mas ter was recovered from the lake. He had been seized with a fit, and his feeble cries for help'were smothered by the myriad voices of the merry-making bathers. Golden Davs. 8UPT. WfljiTfiGCIDENT.

AFFIDAVIT vs HEARSAY. he Democrat Has Had An Average Daily Circulation Of Nearly 5,000 For The Past Three Months. The Democrat is not in the habit of blowing or brag ging about it's circulation, forthe reason that it has not in recentyears found it nec essary. The up-to-date mer chants and business men have longsince learned that it is at least as good an ad vertising medium as any in the city, and many of them have no hesitation in pro nouncing it the very best. If we didn'thave the circu lation this would not be so. The Democrat still main tains its claim to fully as many readers In the city as any other paper published1 here. In the outlying dis tricts our circulation may not be so large.
