Plumb TELEPHONE 71 M2 It was said to-day that there was no truth In ; the rumor that Miss Schreiber had eloped with an actor. Some of her friends claim that she is visiting with relatives and knows noth lug about'all thig talk. ' ; Residents of the high hills of this district who are finding fault because they have no city water should bear in min3 that they will have a chance to , kick about this matter until such time as the high water service is in stalled. A year ago or more the city laid a water main in Fox street, and in so doing supposed that they were making thft residents of that street happy. Later on the people called upon the water board and wanted to know the reason why they could not get water in the faucets during the daytime. The engineer explained that no Detter service could be given with the present water supply, . adding that they would have to be content with what they could draw nights until the high service is installed. It is under stood that something will be done in that direction next year. The advent of -cold weather ; has caused much sickness and the doctors are rushed with calls. Sick people will do well to remember whenever they want a prescription to be filled, to send it to A. C. Walker's pharmacy, where the prescription materials are the best that money can buy. Every thing is fresh and pure. There is no substitute.' The doctor's directions are always carried out with absolute accuracy and the utmost care is taken that there are no mistakes.

Editor of the Democrat: I read in a New York i so-called Inde pendent democratic paper that an effort is being made throughout the state of New York to eliminate David B. Hill as leader of the democratic party and no longer that he be a factor In state and national conventions. Such a course, I think, would prove disastrous to the party in New Yoi'k and perhaps to the national democratic ticket ; next year. However, I believe he is leader to-day and will be for some time to come and perhaps will be a factor, in the next national convention should the party be successful in 1904, which I think it will be. Who in this Ibroad land would make a better secretary of state than ex-Senator Hill to settle our newly ac quired territorial disputes? I am for merly of New Y'ork and a favorite of D. B. Hill. I believe these newspaper stories the work of some disgruntled politicians who are, seeking Hill's over throw. . ; . , ' - " HENRY P. WILSON. . Waterbury, Conn. ROOT DEFENDS WOOD. General 'Acilnjr Under Orders From tlie War Department. WASHINGTON, Dec. 17. Secretary Root at the Wood investigation was asked especially about the charge which Major Rathbone had made that General Wood had Influenced the courts in the prosecution of Rathbone and had tampered with the courts. The secretary explained at some length the court system in Cuba, say ing that the court of first instance was in reality an officer, directed to prose cute and to obtain evidence. He was something like a grand Jury in finding evidence, but was further empowered to go out and obtain evidence, mingle with the people, procure affidavits and otherwise to collect evidence a gainst alleged offenders. The secretary said he knew what General Wood was doing in this matter and approved it. " The secretary said that, in fact, he directed that the prose cution of the offenders, be vigorous, and General Wood was acting Jn this mat ter under orders from the war department. POLICE COUET.
