WATER BTJTtY EVENING DEMOCH AT. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1904.
5 CHANGES HADE TO-DAY. , Officer O'Hearn on Duty at Police Station This Afternoon. In aooordanc with a vote of the de partment of public safety, four regu lar 'patrolmen, Johu Sullivan, John Byrnes, Thomas CH-earn and Michael Sullivan, -went on the reserve force to day. This does not mean that they will have nothing to do In the future but sit on . their verandas and draw half salary. On the contrary, they will be very busy men from now on, though, to be sure, they will not work more than half time. This afternoon Olfker O'Hearn reported for duty and Ttfas assigned to a beat in tlie station, where he will be on deck until 7 o clock this evening, when he will be relieved by Officers John Sullivan and Byrnes, who will remain at their posts until 1 o'clock in the morning. They will come in handy in many ways, and after a time, when things have been worked down to the point where they are wanted, various other places may be found where the reserve force , men will come in handy. For instance, when the patrol wagon is ready for use one of them can go out with it, Eamler the officer who sends in the call such assistance a he may need, and also save him the loss of . time and trouble of accompanying his prisoner to the station. Besides tills, when a call l made at the station for an ofn err. and such things are of frequent efnjnwwe. on of the reserve force men will be ont out Instead of the doorman, who often had to Jump down from cleaning windows or dls eonnect himself from the mop handle in double-quick time and rash Into the public -way at short notice. The doorman will be used still to perforin police duty in as of , emergency, but a Judicious arrangement of the reserve force will reduce the number of de mands made tpon him and give him more time to keep things in shape about the building. Michael Sullivan, m ' of- the officers placed on the re serve force, Js still on, the sick list : During his illness he will receive quar ter pay, but as. soon as he is able to perform duty he -will be paid the same s the rest of the reserve force men, half the regular salary. WORKED THIRD DEGREE. flassachnsatts Team Exemplified Work on Twenty Candidates. The four local councils of the Kntghts of Columbus were honored yesterday with a visit of a degree team from Massachusetts, which ex emplified the work of the- third de gree upon twenty candidates.. The degree team was in charge of District Deputy Louis Watson, of Boston, and Warden John J. Orockrell( of Medford, Slass. They worked the 'third degree . in a manner which elicited much ap plause from the many members in at tendance. Naturally the candidates did not enjoy the first class exempli fication so vreJl. The degree work was performed somewhat differently than It has been done by other teams ' in this city in the past District Dep uty Watson was assisted by State Deputy James Tevlin, of New London tMrtriet Deputy Hearns, of Nauga tnck, and James A. Hynes, of this .city...,;; " ,s In 'the afternoon the eoond de Vgtee was . worked upon four .candi dates. During the intermission be tween the working of the second and third degrees a banquet was served to all members present.

District Deputy Louis Watson, of . Boston; Warden John J. CrockreU, Medford; Andrew J.

Editor Hearst Says Story About $1,- 000,000 Loan Was Malicious. 5 tCb following appeared in the' Sun day Journal yesterday in, answer to an article that appeared in the New York World a few days agot For businesg convenience -the Star company of New Jersey hag been in corporated ail a holding company for the three corporations publishing the ; New York American, the New York Evening Journal, and Daa Morgen Journal, of Newt York city, all the stock of which several companies is , owned by W. II. Hearst; who .la &ls the sole owner of all of tha stock of the Star Company of New Jersey, as well aa of a. $1,000,000 bond Issue of , that company. ; These bonds are guar anteed In the usual way; by. the sub sidiary companies. In this transac ton the Knickerbocker Trust company has acted as trustee. The statement made in the New York World that the Knickerbocker Trust company has loaned one million dollars, taking a irst - mortgage on the several . news papers owned by Mr nearst in New York city, is untrue. Mr Hearst is the owner of all of the tock of the company publishing the , New York American. Mr Hearst is the owner of all of the stock of the company publishing the New York ; ffEtvendng Journal. Mr Hearst is the owner of all of the stock of the com pany publishing Das Morgen Journal, and Mr Hearst is the owner of all of the stock and all of the bonds of the Star Company of New Jersey, the holding company of those corpora tions. Tha Knickerbocker Trust Company, 66 Broadway. New York. February 6, 1904 . The Knickerbocker Trust company has xnad nd loan whatsoever on any of the properties of the corporations owning the New York American, the Jvew York Evening Journal and Das Morgen Journal of this city.

The fight over Regent Moran's posi tion as superintendent of the Brook side home is still on, with the betting in favor of the out-of-town man, who is said to he A. W. Parish of Meriden, iio has had Borne experience in con nection with charities at some of the state institutions. Some of the most influential republicans in the city want to see Mr Moran retained, and If the board 'is bound to make a change they argue that the position should go to a citizen of Waterbury, even though may have a wife who is not ashamed to own herself the mother of a few children, but so far those who take that view of the case have not been able to convert the commissioners, who demand the Job for a republican, whether he is a resident of Waterbury or not It Is said that the removal ot MrN Moran was not thought of during the election contest nor for some time after, but upon second thought some of the commissioners, forgetting about the promise of a business administra tion, got their heads together and con cluded that It was too big a phim to leave to the other fellows and set about making inquiries for a suitable man. A few desirable persona cropped up about town, each having so much backing that; the commissioners saw breakers aliead and sought to steer clear of tbeni by going out of town. It seems this has made things worse, the local applicants and their frlenos claiming that they would prefer to see "Tom" retained than hare the Job go to somebody outside of Waterbury. Some of the commissioners are said to be indifferent regarding public opin ion and take the ground that for the time being they- are in control of the institution . and declare that they are going to run it according to their own iaeas.'and don't propose to be dictated to by any man or set of men. One of the leaders of the republican party said Saturday that he was Very much, opposed to having the Brookslde home placed in charge of out-of-town parties. He preferred to see Mr Moran retained, but he should not object to a cuan-ge provided the- Job went to a resident of Waterbury. He thought we ought to maintain a home rule so far as such a thing is possible and wanted to know what would be said in case the other boards should take the hint from the board of charities and buy labor and everything else the city needs from other than local par ties; All things else being equal, he believed that the home market should have the preference The same man said he dldnt think that the department of chart tl eg had decided to dispense with the services of Mortimer Doran as superintendent of the town poor. If they had he , was not aware of it He had been in formed on what he considered excel lent authority that after a very care ful investigation Mr Doran's work stood the severest test that could have been applied to it and that nothing could be found which would warrant a change in that office from a business standpoint. "Great care," he said, "was taken to lift the charities of the city above politics and I shall not be lieve that a mistake was made on that point until I see the proof." He said he knew that certain elements were finding fault about the retention of public officials who had been appointed by democrats, but he felt Acorindent that the department of charities would prove that wherever a change was made it was done solely with a view to securing better service for rh city and he hadn't heaitl that Mr Doran's work could be improved upon. . HANNA IS DOING WELL. Fli7liM Say Heart Atfon I Go a A nd IV Cmllatlona. WASHINGTON, Feb. 8. There is no radical change in the condition of Sen ator Hanna. His extreme weakness is more marked than heretofore, and his temperature is a little higher. Those attending him, .however, insist there is nothing significant In these conditions and that there are no developments on which to change their expressed belief that the outlook is hopeful for the sen ator's reoovery. There has been a con sultation of Dr. Hlxey and two out of town physicians, but the only impor tant development that transpired as to the consultation was that it had been decided to omit the evening calls of the attending physician so as to give the patient rest. Those .who participated in the con sultation besides Dr. K'ixey, the sur geon general of the navy, who is the regular attending physician, were Dr. Osier, the expert diagnostician of Johns Hopkins university of Balti more, and Dr. ' Brewer ' of New York.

For twenty-four hours the special train on which high officials of the Great North ern railroad were making a tour of tha line was buried in a snowdrift near Nllea, N. D. It was regarded as a Joke while fuel and provisions remained, but when both were giving out the railroad magnates realised the seriousness of the situation. Louis W. Hill, second vice president; Frank E. Ward, general manager, and F. W. Blabon, third vice president went to work with snow shovels. Gen eral Superintendent EJ. L. Brown, Su perintendent of Motive Power George Emerson, Superintendent J. C. Howard and General Purchasing Agent Edward James floundered through the snow banks in search of rail fences. When they return! with fuel, they were Im pressed Into the servlee. They finally effected their escape and passed through here tired and with blistered hands, but happy.

Judd's Birthday Fittingly Celebrated Saturday. "Father Sturges M. Judd celebrated his 95th birthday Saturday at his home on Judd street. The event was made much of and congratulatory letters were received from a number of peo ple. Among them was the following from the pen of n well known Kcal writer: February 6, 1904. Dear Father Judd: ; Or should I say "Dear Brother." Yon seem more like the nrst than like the t'other, Because your years entitle you to be A Bort of guardian to the "girls," like me. I think if we live to be ninety-five And find tnat we are then as much alive To current happenings as you are now, And if .our years of life shall ua endow With as much wisdom, zeal and good ness, too, As your fourscore and fifteen years have you, We may be truly thankful, that is sure, And glad that life and strength did so . endure. We've got together, just to make things pleasant , On your birthday, for you a little pres ent, i ; '. a ; We wisheach dollar we could multiply. By ten because we can't it makes us sigh; But if we did ,it would express no more Of love and friendship than this little store. 1 We've brought some fruit, too, that we hope you'll eat, Also some flowers just for a little trsnt. That "we" means all the "girls" you know so well, I'm speaking now for them, their mind to tell. At worthy matron, I've thought best to add A present, of my own to make you glad. Sweet little doggie, may he bring good cheer To you all through the coming happy year. KATE WOODWATtD NOBLE. Worthy Matron, Naomi Chapter, No 23, O. EL S. Butter from C mnm&m. The London Times, commenting on the difference in quality ot the butter from Australia, New Zealand and Can ada, says: "In Canada the government authorities appear adverse to the use of boron compounds, which, if used in proper quantities, are perfectly in nocuous to the health, if not even bene ficial. Their use has now been legal ized in the United Kingdom, and they possess marvelous powers of preserving butter from undergoing any deteriorat ing change for many months." To Unionism. The first monument to trade union ism was erected recently in Melbourne, Australia. It is called the "Eight-Hour Mounnient," as it is in commemoration of the eight-hour system, which was begun in Australia 48 years ago. The monument is a tall marble pillar, sur mounted by an oblong block holding a globe and a torch. The word "Prosperi ty" is written on the globe and three large figure eights are engraved on the block. PLant Without R.oota. There is a plant In Chill, and a similar oneln Japan, called the "flower of the air." It is so called because it appears to have no root, and is never fixed to the earth. It twines round a dry tree or sterile rook. Each shoot produces two or three flowers like a lily -white, trans parent and odoriferous. It is capable of being transported 600 or V)Q miles, and vegetates es it travels suspended on a twig. Dnnlak Bmob.

Mr. Maarten Maartena, the well known novelist whose real name, it may not be generally understood, ie Van de Poorten-Schwartz", says that he chose this pseudonym for the purpose of his English writings because It was Dutch In look but English and simple in sound. It is thus, he says, easy to pronounce and yet there is no doubt as to its belonging to a foreigner. Injnrfona to Eye. Fatigue of the eye In light of different colors has been studied in Prance by A.
