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. ' ; .
vMrs M. L. Hyatt, 40, died Monday
at noon at the residence of her sister,
Miss F. J. Bolton, 44 Cottage place.
The funeral will be held Thursday af-
i ternoon, with services at the house,
conducted by the Rev F. D. Buckley.
' Interment will be at Riverside ceme
tery. Mrs Hyatt was .the widow of
Eugene H. Hyatt, the well known Ma.
son,' Odd' Fellow and Pythian, who
died about three years ago. She was
Torri' at Great Barrlngton, Mass, and
'wag the youngest daughter of Thomas
'C. Bolton. ' After her marriage vshe
became a member of Trinity Episcopal
pa rish of- this city. ? Of a uniformly
'sunny and lovable disposition, she en
deared ' herself to many people who
had the privilege of knowing her, and
many little deeds of kindness can- be
placed to her credit. She , leaves
. three brothers, Thomas J. Bolton of
Daltonr. Mass; William C. Bolton of
Orent Barrington, Mass ; Edward A;
Bolton of Winsted. and two sisters.

Canada Has Her Eye On In
dependent Colony of
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-

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 "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

A Chicago Suburb's Plan to Solve Ser
y vant Girl Problem.
Classic Evanston, 111., is to have a
servant girls' club.
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." . : . .
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." , ,
