WATER BURY DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY, JANUARY 5 190.
f I DEATHS AND FUNERALS. Rev. Martin P. Lawlor Passed Away ; Early This Morning. , Rev Martin P. Lawlor died at 4 'clock this tnorningi at his residence, 15S North Main street, after an illness of about three months. Father Lawlor was born in Mount rath, Queen's county, Ireland, and came to Waterbury in 1852, his par ents, Mr and Mrs John Lawlor, and other members of the family having already established a residence in this town. He attended the public schools and later entered St Charles college, where he studied . for- the priesthood. lie was ordained in 3870 and entered upon his priestly du ties In ; Westerly. ; Later he minis- tered In Pawtucket, Norwalk, New Mllford, his first pastorate. New Lon don, Fairfield, Danbury and Meriden. For eeveral years past he has not had any -i parish. Ills health was . poor and he was not able to attend to the arduous duties required from one who ( 7 keeps up with the daily life of the priesthood. When not troubled with j sickness ho was a familiar figure about town and probably no man in I the community had . a better know- I ledge of public affairs or kept a closer watch upon the movements of men in public places. He was a ripe scholar nud kept in touch with his studies right along, so that although his health was poor he was abreast of the times and when occasion called for it ' he never hesitated to step to the front and tell those about him a few things. A few years ago durlngi a public meeting In the city hall for the pur pose of making some appropriation for, school purposes Father Lawlor was one of the speakers, and the way 'ho talked about the conditions prompted many who did not know , .) him to Inquiry which party he repre- neuted on the district committee. He ' liked t talk of his early days In Wa ( terbury and had the history of the town and those who were prominent ; here half a century ago on the tip of hid tongue. i .He made a few trips to the old world and took a pride ln tell ing of the marked improvement ) no- tieeable in Ireland at the present time compared with what it was when his father was. a boy. He was a mem- her of a very largo family, all of whom with the exception of I one brother, Christopher Lawlor, are dead, j He was an uncle to Thomas F.and Mary E. Lawlor. children of the late Peter Lawlor; Michael J. : McEvOy, Finton T. -McEvoy, Martin J. McEvoy and Frank P. McEvoy, . children of his sister,, Mary Lawlor McEvoy; Jo peph P. Lawlor, son of his , brother, Michael Lawlor. The funeral will take place Friday morning at ,10:30 o'clock to the church of the Immacu late Conception. ' ; . MARY LUCRETI A HYATT. vMrs M. L.

Report says Canada, dissatisfied with the recent decision in regard to Alaska, has bethought her that it may be worth her while to add to her pos sessions the independent colony of Newfoundland. Well, let us see what she would get. An editorial in the Canadian Maga zine remarks that It is difficult to get people to believe in Newfoundland, they holding that if there had been any good in her she would have made a stir ere this. But a great deal of the fault lies, ' so says the editorial writer from whom' we are quoting, with the fact that certain great commercial in terests' have been keeping Newfound- THE COLONIAL BUILDING, ST. JOHNS. From the Stops of Which Edward Was Proclaimed : King, t j ; land a fishing station and nothing else, and that the life of a fishing com munity is only an alternation of gaunt famine and profitless plenty. What Newfoundland needs Is farmers, agri cultural settlers, who will not center their attention on her shores, hut will engage in the development of her in ternal resources. Newfoundland has a very considera ble extent of unsettled lands (area of island, 42,734 square miles), a very limited population (216,615 people). The Canadians would have these lands studied, their resources made known, and inviting ; terms offered settlers. Lying in the temperate zone, a climate suitable for the white colonist, it does appear as though here were an open ing for the overcrowded in the home land, , and virgin . soil to be enriched and cultivated for producing for The hdme markets. The coasts are rugged, but along the numerous lakes and wa ter courses of the interior there is good land, : and in some places land heavily timbered. St. Johns, the capi tal city, and also the metropolis, boasts a population of about 30,000; and other centers are Harbor; Grace (6,184), Carbonear (3,703) , Twillingate (3.542), and Bonavista (3,696). Newfoundland is one of the great fishing headquarters of the world. The staples product is cod, which consti tutes five-eighths of : the island's ex port and employs three-quarters of its population. The , seal fisheries, also, are , very important; the value of the seal catch for 1901 was $425,255. The island recently, has begun to search the ground for minerals, as well as the waters for fish, and the year 1901 the total value of the output of crude ma terials, at her mines and quarries amounted to over $1,000,000; copper, iron, pyrite ores, and slate were ex ported to Europe and ' America; and the colony used the . brick, building etone, granite, limestone and -: paving stone obtained. Coal of good quality la found on the west coast, and in the eastern part of the island there , are extensive deposits of silver and lead ore. There are 630 miles of railway ln the colony. v The colony of Newfoundland, though owing allegiance to the British crown. Ik. .. ' . ... 1 inmn tffsr -- THE HARBOR OF ST. JOHNS. the "Cinderella of her colonies," pos sesses full self-government. For some time the question of union with Canada has been under - discussion, and the union has been looked upon most favorably by the Canadians. The Newfoundlanders, however, have not shown an equal enthusiasm holding to the sentimental aspect of the mat ter, fearing as a subordinate colony they might, lose prestige. But gradu ally there seems to be growing a be lief that i commercially union with Canada would be desirable. The "French shore" question long has been a vexed one, and to it is at tributable much of Newfoundland's lack of progress. . The French retain certain rights given them by the treaty of Utrecht back ln 1713, rights for their fishermen to land . and dry their fish on the northern and western shores of Newfoundland; and disputes over ; this matter have for years been a disturbing factor in the life of the islanders.

Within a year visitors to the north shore suburb of Chicago will find there a building completely fitted out as a modern clubhouse which will be re served entirely for the accommodation of cooks, chambermaids and nurses and their friends. The equipment will include reading rooms, gymnasium, a swimming pool and a ballroom. Here the household servants of the suburb will ! gather in their leisure hours and amuse themselves in ways which are at present available only to their employ ers, says the Chicago Inter-Ocean. This is the solution of the servant girl problem which will be tried in the near future. The first steps toward this end have already becn taken by several prominent clubwomen. 0 hey have or ganized a servant girls', club, or rather "house girls," as they prefer to call the women employed in their homes, and have given it the title of "The White Aprons." The membership is at peseent limited to about thirty, but applications for entrance are pouring in, and the number will be enlarged. Until steps are taken to provide the organization with rooms of its own the clubwomen who are supporgng the plan will throw open their own parlors at regular intervals for the meetings of the society. The first regular meeting was held at the home of Mrs. John Parry Johnston of 2018 Orrington ave nue. During the first part of the even ing an open discussion was held upon the subject 1 "The Making of ; Ice Cream," which was later demonstrated by Mrs. Johnston, , who followed a fa vorite recipe of . her own. Later .the girls sang, danced and practiced vari ous gymnastic feats.- In this part of the entertainment the hostess was as sisted by Miss Mabel May Heren, a senior in Northwestern university, who instructed the girls in dancing and gymnastic drill. .Mrs. Johnston, who is at the head of the movement, is a student of the serv ant girl problem and is taking advance work in the department of sociology in the local university. She has partici pated in several former experiments of the same nature and was vice president of the Pittsburg Servant Girls' associa tion. ; She was also secretary of the New York ; Kindergarten society, of which Mrs. Jay Gould was president. Later she .was London . correspondent for one of the New York papers. While in England she made a special study of the English method of handling serv ants. . "It was there," said Mrs. Johnston, "that I developed my strong sentiments upon tfye subject. ; When I saw the mayor of London present graduate cer tificates, to several hundred girls from a servants' school with almost the dig nity of a professional degree, I realized that we across the water must cease to look down upon our household employ-! ees. We complain of their lack of re-4 flnement, and 'yet --we glve: themiho chance to come within refining influ ences. My Idea is a -good sized club house where they can meet to enjoy themselves, discuss their problems and develop themselves mentally and phys ically." . : . . NO STEPS IN THEATERS. Francia "Wilson Says All Descents , Should lj Gentle Incline. Theatrical people in Philadelphia are horrified at t the Iroquois disaster in , Chicago. Francis Wilson in speaking the other night of the panic said, ac cording to the Chicago Record-Herald: "I suppose similar scenes always will follow a sudden rush In any building crowded with men and women, but I feel strongly that theater buildings could be improved so as to reduce the danger in a stampede to a minimum. It is my opinion that there should not be a single step in a theater. The de scents should be gentle inclines. That this is possible is shown by the con struction of a new theater in Pittsburg, where even the gallery is reached by inclines. , : "It is the. thought of the many stair ways that must be passed quickly and possibly in darkness that drives the oc cupants of the, galleries to panic at any alarm. If they . were sure of a clear pathway straight to the street half their fear would be allayed. In doing away with steps in the . auditorium of theaters the builders should not forget the actors." , , W E HAVE still left quite a lot of stock and will continue the sale for ten days in order to close it out en tirely.
