That favorite of Waterbury theater goers, Daniel Sully, and a first-class supporting company, furnished ' pleas ure and enjoyment to hundreds of peo ple, at Poll's theater yesterday after noon and . evening. "The Old Mill Stream," the rehicle in which the well known actor Is riding this year, Is strong of frame and body, thougi sim ply constructed. It Is not a play in which the spectator Is required to use mental powers to perceive the plot The plot Is not Intricate. It Is a sim ple story, simply told; but In the tell ing of it there is plenty of merriment and pleasure. The spectators are now seized with raptures of laughter, now their eyes are dim with tears as their feelings are affected by the pathos. There Is a strange mixture of merri ment and sentiment The play is a good one and should Insure success for Mr Sully for at least one season. Dan was at bis best yesterday and local theater goers know what that menns. He was finely supported by the other members of the company. Packed houses at both performances showed their appreciation of the pjiy by con tinuous outbursts of applause. PURELY PERSONAL.

Many Men and Capable Musi cians In Line Yesterday. The Largest and Best Demonstration Ever Given In the City Nearly 3,000 Men. Marched for Almost Two Hours Afternoon and Evening Festivities Were Largely Attended. , Labor day had its first real observ ance in Waterbury yesterday. All the factories, stores and other places where large nunibers of people work honored the day by closing, " and the hands were on the streets looking up good spots from which to view the great parade they had been reading so much about in the papers. Many were wondering if the parade would be as big an affair as they had been led to believe, but after the last man in the parade had passed by nearly everybody declaxed that once at least for a won der the reports published relative to a public entertainment had not been ex aggerated. It was a sight "well worth witnessing and one vrbo likes to be fair about things would find It hard to tell which Ig entitled to the most credit for It, the committee of arrangements, the men who did the marching or the mu sicians whose, clarion ' notes woke up the whole town and attracted young and old from the most remote corners of the town Into the streets through which the parade had been billed to pass. The decorations were a, com plete triumph and after looking them over and seeing that nearly'everybody had contributed something to the gen eral effect In the way of flags or bunt ing, the notion that there Is anything but thexbest of feeling 'existing among the people of this town locked rather far fetched. Everybody appeared to be happv, even the devil himself, who cut sucb a swath In the .procession, was wreathed in smfes, and as he hur ried along folks remarked that after all perhaps he was not half as bad Irs they say, and crowds of girls rushed from one street to another in the hope of being rewarded bv a bow from h's majesty. The men on horseback made a stunning, appearance and considering the provocation, very few of the ani mals showed any disposition to relieve themselves of thlr load. Ttsually in. w bIg Ptreet parade somebody who has been chosen to act as marshal comes to the ground, but yesterday w&s an ex ception, every -man who mounted a charger remaining In the saddle until dismissed by the grand marshal. The weather was favorable for out-door ex ercises and no doubt this had some thing to do in bringing out the crowds, many of whom spent the day sight-seeing about the town after taking the parade. " ' .., ' Almost everyone you talk' with, has an Idea of his own as to 'the number of men In line. Some say between 1, 700 and 1.800, while others claiAi that counting the musicians.' men In car riages and on horseback and those on foot there could not have been less than 3,000 persons In the procession. But what matters about that; it is ad mitted on all sides that the parade was A great success both' from a spectaealar standpoint as "well as strength of num bers. It showed that Waterbury is a very strong union town and that the different trades are not composed of any particular class or set of men, but are made upof a share of all the ele ments that enter Into the makeup of Waterbury's cosmopolitan population. Probably this is why organized labor has made such, strides in this city. No man's race or color Is a barrier be tween him and the craft he wishes to become affiliated with, and once he en ters the portals of the organizations and satisfies himself that its aim is right something which it does not take blm long to find out, he not only de cides to remain there, but uses every possible effort to bring others in. And so organized labor in' Waterbury grew In a few years from a handful of men to a body embracing practically the skilled and much of the unskilled labor In the market. The line of march and general arrangements were substan tially the same as announced In Sat urday's Democrat and everything went through without a hitch. Owing to some misunderstanding tho vaudeville performance-which was to have been given In the . auditorium in the afternoon did not come off, but the evening performance went on and was well attended. The dance at the City hall attracted a crowded house and turned out to be one of the great social events of the season. The grand march was led by President John T. Daly of the Central Labor union and wife, fol lowed by over 200 couples. " A feature of the day was the distri bution of 3,000 canes by the Hellmann Brewing Co. The canes were of the bamboo variety and all well selected sticks. Each bore a broad ribbon with the company's ad, and the efforts of many women, and especially children, to secure one of these souvenirs resulted In some of the funniest , scrimmages ever seen in Waterbury in broad day light. The distribution was In charge of George Robarts, and he was ably assisted by H. J. Austin, the well known fourth warder, and August Neschke, Jr. The Lltuanlan Buffers and Polishers' union was out in full force yesterday. They had one of the largest delegations in the line. Thomas Bulger, an employe of the mechanical department of the Demo crat, attracted much attention in the parade yesterday. He was attired as a devil. v "Our Director" appears to be the fa vorite musical composition at the pres ent time. It must have beqn played a hundred times by the bands and drum corps in the parade yesterday. The employes of Roger & Brothers made a fine showing in the parade yes. terday. They were 150 strong. One of the men carried a banner on which was the inscription: "We are organ ized and our employer treats us fair." The employes of this shop are better organized than those in any other shop in the city. -The best of feeling pre vails between the men and Manager Rockwell. The boys intended to have a group picture taken ! yesterday and to present it to Mr Rockwell but there was some misunderstanding and the picture was not taken. It may be tak en later.

This was followed by the shrieks of some young ladies and ' a rush of hundreds from . their seats. Many couples in the grand march broke ranks and the march was stopped temporari ly. A part of the decorations on the wall In the gallery had caught fire and was being rapidly consumed when An drew Stein, the well 1 known football player, made a rush, pulled it down Stamped his foot on it and thus extin guished the fire and put an end to the little panic. It was all over in a few minutes. Then the grand march went on, and the people 'were once more calm of mind. Cranlc Shaft Broke, Steamer Ashore. OGDENSBURG, N. Y., Sept. 8.
