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. The prices
are the lowest.

Waterbury Man Who Doesn't Like the
Way He is Being Sidetracked.
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. . ; . , ' - "

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
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.
