WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. MONDAY, JUNE 22, 1903.
t i r THE DAILY STATEMENT. V Cay Trolley Company Was In a , Bad Predicament To-Day. ifhe strikers' executive committee ls od the. following statement this af ternoon: "We ire starting in to-day on our twenty-fourth 'week of the strike, this v being the 163d day out "The . trolley company this morning found itself in at predicament and the unusual sight a company pleading with; its employes to remain at work Instead of the reverse was the case. I There is a trolley strike in Richmond, Va, and eight of the old strike breakers I here were invited to go there and work at a wage scale of $3 per day. They decided to go and so informed the com I pany. Thereupon the company got I ' down on its knees, so to speak, and I pleaded with the men not to go and leave them without men enough to man their cars. They offered the men 1 $3 a day to stay here and finally three j of the eight accepted the proposition 1 and remained. Five decided to stand j by their first plan and have gone to Richmond. Citizens of Waterbury, ' whatdo you think of such a situation? r A. company begging men to work for 3 (3 a day strangers and non-residents gather than give citizens of the town which created it $2.23 per day! And ' the chances are that they Would have I given more if the strike breakers keld out: -i I VSeveral Waterbury people who have I , fone to west shore resorts in Connecti I . cut have reported to us that if ever a I yj picture of crestfallen humanity was iver presented, It Is portrayed . In one . f the motormen on that line. When. ever a Waterbury person boards his I car, 'the fellow grows red to the roots 1 of his hair and pulls his cap down over . bis eyes. He is ashamed of the posl j . - tton he is filling. The motorman is a V fellow named Sickmund, who formerly j ' ran a hotel here and who, when' here, : . ased to express his sympathy for our cause. He is now a strike breaker on the line between Bridgeport and j New Haven, but - his conscience ap I 4 parently troubles him greatly, f, "Forest park was opened on Satur- flay and we are informed that there " " .rete Just ten people up there In the af- R ternoon. Of course the strike is re- sponsible for this awful showing, and j lt-seems too bad , that the owners of j this pretty park should be obliged to j suffer because the trolley company tees fit to stand out against fair re- quests from its employes. 1 ' .''The company is still showing indif ference to . public discomfort by not , . making any ftiove toward bringing j about peace and a settlement of the al- j ready too old unpleasantness. We are : . tiU doing - business - at the same Old 1 stand, ready at any time to do our full j ; share and more to bring this thing to an. end. Fair, play Is all we want, and i t the. public evidently wants to see us j get that ' i "Our .'Shoulder to Shoulder base ball team has been taking things easy late lyy but the boys are now limbering up asd on next Saturday will go to Brldge- Srt and play the strikers' team down ere. That will be a big attraction for Bridgeport, and If the day is favor-A,- . able there will be a big crowd on hand. , x Manager Bewell will be missed at that ! frame, as he always was-on -hand In I the past to bet on the Waterbury boysJ I j ' Btr perhaps he may be there after all, 1 W&o knows? - The boys would give tdnx the glad hand, too."

The sermon was ery interesting.' f -A special feature of the services was the musical program. It was the best rhlea has been rendered at the Sacred Heart church in some time. Mercadante's vespers were sung. The rendition" of , the "Mag; nlfleaf was fine. M. J. McEVoy sang excellently "Salve Reglna," while the hymn to the Sacred Heart by Mrs L-u-cien Wolff and M. J.

Prom 5 o'clock precipitation as measured by W. J. Welton amounted to 4.23 Inches. Mr Welton says he has no recollection of the same amount of rainfall in that time. -The rainfall for June thus far Is 9.59 and for the present year to date 2S.25. The" average yearly rainfall in Waterbury is. about 50 inches, a frac tion over four inches per month, so that we have considerably over that in this year thus far. At the Branch reservoir the water rose to a height of 19 inches above the spillway, the highest on record. Superintendent Relley of the street department was out all day yesterday and states that while considerable damage has been dene by washouts', still it is not near so serious as one would suppose. ' The storm water conduits that are being put In furnish an outlet for large vol umes of water and when the system Is completed the public ways will suffer but little from any kind of storm. WATER VILLE MAN DROWNED. Sank in Naugatuck River Near Ameri can Pin Pactory. s Martin Lowig, an employe of the American Pin Co at Waterville, was drowned yesterday afternoon in the Naugatuck river near the factory. The water was high and the current strong, but Lowig thought he would have no trouble in rowing to the opposite side to milk some cows, something hejaad been in the habit of doing "for some time past. The plan of propelling the boat is similar to that used on a ferry and instead of the oars the person in the boat reaches from one side to the other by pulling on a strong wire rope. When Lowig got Into the boat accom panied by bis dog,. people who were. on the ground 1 warned him of the risk he was running, but the man said there was no danger and started to haul himself out When some distance from the starting point the' water rocked the boat fright fully tipping it so that Lowfg realized his periloils position and grasped the wire and clung to it with all his might The dog Jumped and swam to a place of safety while those on the bank tried to reach the man who was struggling on the, wire, but before anything could be done to help him he became exhaust ed and sank out of sight. In making an effort to reach him James Burns waded out so far that he came near be lng carried away. It is evident that Lowig did not know now to swim ror he made no effort to save himself In that manner. He was married, but had not- been living with his wife. Charles Winslow with whom he boarded, reported the case to the po lice. Medical. Examiner Crane was called, but could do nothing until the body is found. A search wac at once Instituted, but on account of the high water no trace of the body could be discovered. It Is probable that it was swept a long distance down the river. Lowig was about 40 years old and came8 to this state" from California some time ago. He had charge of the elevator at the pin shop and milked cows on Sunday for a man who tended to them himself on week days. GRAOE BAPTIST CHURCH. New Edifice of Colored!

' In pressing cleeves, which is the bane of the amateur's life, ' keep a wooden tolling pin for that purpose alone. In sert in the sleeve, and the pressing of seams and wrists also is as easily done as though It were a flat surface. Cover pin with flannel. Keep a heavy piece of flannel to lay over the Ironing board when pressing wool goods. This " pre vents the shiny spots so objectionable In a finished garment ; ; How to Pack a Trunk. The secret of good packing is firm ness and .smoothness, and to attain these everything should be put. in the trunk In layers. Before putting n the dresses have a firm layer of undergar ments and then proceed with the thick est and heaviest of; your skirts. The skirts should be folded as nearly as possible In the folds they take in wear. See that you lay the skirts alternately In different directions, so that if the waistband on one is to the left side of the trunk the waistband of the next is at the right side, for thus the level will be preserved. Between light and dark dresses place a towel to prevent the for mer soiling the latter. Fold bodices as far as can be In the lines which they take upon the figure. Put stiff, lightly crushed paper Into the sleeves and also Into bows and puffings to prevent their being creased and then pack as tightly as convenient When taken out of the trunk they will be found uninjured. , How to Keep Millc Sweet. . A tiny pinch of carbonate of soda o salt put into the milk as soon as It ar rives will help to prevent it from turn ing sour and if it seems inclined to turn and is slowly heated to nearly boiling point and a pinch of carbonate of soda then stirred in the sourness will disappear. Some people also add a tiny pinch of sugar. ' How to F1H Your , Pipe.

Tha match is then withdrawn, the pipa lighted up and the full flavor of the to bacco extracted without waste. , SalUe and Willie.
