WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, THURSDAY, , JULY 16, 1903.
THE STRIKERS' STATEMENT. Say They are Seventy-five Men Strong i and True. The strikers' executive committee is sued the following statement this af ternoon: "The 187th day of our 6trike finds us standing together, seventy-five men strong; or ninety men counting in ex tras, The Connecticut Railway and Lighting Co hag already spent over 1400,000 to. subdue""Tis in our efforts to get $2.25 per day, and they are ho near er having us whipped than they were Six months ago, thanks to the public, which thinks we- are In the right and acta accordingly. "What do the directors of my com pany oare for the public of Waterbury? They are satisfied with the way things are going here. My directors told me Monday not to meet any committee of the strikers. If any of them want to come back to work they will have to apply as individuals." This Is substan tially what General x Manager Sewell stated to a friend "who last night en deavored to, get the general manager and our executive committee together, in the hope that such a conference might bring about a settlement. The public of Waterbury who daily see the city 6treetg occupied by this corpora tion free of cost will be interested to hear what those directors have to say when they get an opportunity to show their appreciation of what the public of Waterbury has done for their com pany. If the directors think that they are getting "- the strikers or the "public 'whipped Into line they . will discover their error every day the strike Is on, and particularly when dividend day comes around and 6bow lncreasea losses. This attempted conference was nothing Inspired by us, but was the effort of public spirited citizens to adjust the public discomfort While we are will ing to do anything in reason to settle it, we feel Just as independent as the company, and if the company saya fight we say 'ditto.' "The public has heard various stor ies to the effect that the strike was all over in Bridgeport. One story was to the effect that the Central Labor body down there was going to put the com "pany on the fair list. Well, the fol lowing telegram received by our secre tary this morning ought to be con tradiction enough of these rumors: will continue strike here; don't give up. (Signed) T. R. Wood, president' This means that Chairman Dillworth of the national organization is in Bridgeport for two day s,' and there must be some thing doing. ' ; In referring to Matt Kerrigan going back to the company and deserting our ranks, we neglected to Inform the pub lie that at the time we went out on strike, Kerrigan was not a member of , our union and he could have gone with the company without any criticism from us. Since, we went out, how ever, he was initiated Into our union and took the obligation, which makes desertion now all the more contemptible." WAR ON MOB FIGHTERS. Militiamen Discharged foif Shooting on ' Kioters Union Labor After Tbem. Indianapolis, July 16. Indignation was expressed at a meeting of the Business Men's association yesterday over the discharge of five of the militia company by firms employing them be cause of the killing and wounding of the rioters who attempted to storm the the Jail in Evansville. Ever since the dispersion of the mob members of la bor unions have been bringing pressure to bear upon the employers of the militiamen and Thursday five of the men were discharged. At the meeting yesterday speeches eulogizing the militia and bitterly ar raigning the employers of the five men were made and resolutions to the same effect were adopted. A resolution was also passed favoring efforts to find places for the discharged men. The resolutions were offered by Major A. - C. Rosecranz, a manufacturer. He said it was right to place the blame of the recent riot where it belonged. He read from several labor papers that advised union people ' not to become members of the militia. "It is time," he said, "that the business men and manufacturers of the city were stand ing firm in this matter. During the last six months there have been a number of attempts to organize militia compan ies in this city, and the attempts were frustrated by the labor unions. I be lieve in putting the blame where it rightfully belongs." He said the un ions caused the rioting. IMPORTANT FRANCHISE GRANT. Chicago Issues a Twenty-six Year Con ' - : tract ' Chicago, July 16.

Frost dealer in barbers' sup plies, at 645 Chapel afreet will now cease, as the thief has been discovered in no less a person than Julius H. Frost jr, a boy 17 years of age, who admits that he has been continuously robbing his father. Not satisfied with what he could pocket while acting as clerk in the store, he brazenly admits that he cal culated on getting at least one-third of all the money he handled for his own use. He also states that he has bro ken into the store many nights between April 12 and July 5 and taken out goods which he sold to obtain more money to spend lavishly with girls. Young Fro6t was arrested by Detective .Sergeant Dennehy last night and ls charged on two counts with burglary, although Captain Cowles states that the youth has entered the store at least a dozen times to obtain property for dii?posal. . The case first came to the notice of the detective (bureau last week, when the elder Frost ' reported to Captain Cowles that he was losing goods in some mysterious manner. Sergeant Dennehy was detailed on the case and has been working on it for the last few days. - At first it seemed like a (blind one, but after a time the ser geant became possessed1 of certain in formation that led to the arrest last nLsht. When young Frost was taken into custody he stated that he had just returned from a trip to Coney Island, where he had been enjoying himself. He had not been home since July 2, al though he ' lived with his parents at 1599 Chapel street After being taken fo the detective bureau the boy admitted that he was responsible for the loss of goods his father had suffered. He stated that, while employed as clerk at he store, he usually pocketed about one-third of the money he took an for goods. If the purchase amount ed to $3, three of that went Into the rill and two into his pocket If it was $3, one went to ham. But even this did not at 'all times keep him supplied -with spending mon ey and he usually ran short Sundays. Then he would visit the store, reach in through a wdndoy pane he had pre viously (broken for that purpose, unlock the catch and help himself to goodts enough so that he could realize a suf ficient sum on them when sold to sup ply his needs. . . His thefts from the store embraced razors, hones, shears, perfumery, soaps, mugs and other supplies. The date of the first break known at the store was April 12 and the last July 5. Young Frost Is said to "be a wild boy. Although he says lie is but 17 years of age, he is fond of the society of wo men, so it is stated, and this is where the most of his money went' He is a large ''boy for his age. Evil associations undoubtedly had much to do with the downfall of the young man, as he was constantly In older company. His friends asserr that he was led astray by others. MONUMENT COMPLETED. Cannons, Which Will Be Mounted, to Be Set Up. The contractors yesterday completed the setting up of the monument which will be unveiled at Bay View park, New Haven, August 5. It is a beautiful piece of work, and the figures on the column face Howard avenue.

The committee, with the park commis sioners, will visit the park to-day anc settle several points in connection with grading around the monument and the placing of anchor stones for the guns. These guns will be taken to the park Tuesday evening, under escort of the Sons of Veterans and the association of Sons and Grandsons of the Ninth. TO GIVE BRYAN A BOOST.
