Con iinw was hnTswl with kppninar ouen !bia cafe and dispensing liquors yester day, to wnicn ne pieaaea not guilty. He was defended by Attorney Ken nedy. The testimony of the officers was that about 9 o'clock last evening, as they were passing the Hub, they saw uonnors oemna nis oar aua yu a tray with two glasses on it to- a waitress. Then they saw the waitress pass out and place the glasses on a table at which a man and woman were sitting behind a screen in the restau rant A rriTiTrin Inton thft officers en tered the restaurant and as Connors saw them he put the glasses in his pocket, and in doing so spilled part of the contents on the floor. Brearton tasted of the latter and found it was liquor. The officers then had Connors open the bar room, and seeing no evi dence of business there they withdrew and investigated tne refrigerator i" ifhft lr!thATV na well na a ciiDboard Kor closet that stood between the cafe and the restaurant, in the latter mey found a few glasses, in one of which Hfift llrmr .that smelled like beer. The officers did not inquire of the party at the table it tney naa or dwftrt a meaKand while Brearton said he did not know that Connors kept a hotel, McCarthy was not sure on xnai point either, but knew he kept rooms to rent It was admitted that Con nors had a hotel license. Prosecutor . Pierce asked what was the reputation of the restaurant as a place where liquors were sold, but this wag ruled out. , Officer McCarthy added that he did not see Officer Brearton taste of the liquor that had been spilled on the fl oor. - Attorney Kennedy made a motion for dismissal He maintained his client had a perfect right to serve lfrmw nnrlw !MJ HrTISO - Thflt WaS why a hotel license allows an access between the bar room and the rest of iHio iTmlMlnsr. Mr l-ierr? dlsasrreed with him and Judge Burpee asked if that was not tne reason ror une access why -as It allowed. However, he dls- allowed tne motion to dismiss. . Connors then took the stand and said there was not a word of truth in the statements of the officers, only so far as It referred to the refrigerator. A party ordered a meal, he said, and the man nalrftri frw n. few oierars also, and invited Connors to accept one. Con nors did o end was putting it in ma pocket when the officers entered. They riiri Tin sftA Mm tvut classes in his pocket and he did not see Brearton taste of any liquid that was spmea on the floor. Had lie done so witness would hare seen him. The customers' meal was on the fire. Witness was not In the bar, nor was the waitress. '!. Judge Burpee said there was a tech. Ideal violation, a violation that would not be regarded as such In many other states. On the charge of dispensing liquor a fine of $25 and costs was im posed; and on the charge of keeping open sentence was suspended. - An ap peal was taken. x , MIcnael Sappo was able to speak English and "hoUer' In It when he was arrested by Officer Walsh on Jack son street last evening for intoxica tion.

He was fined $5 and costs. ; , i - ' George Beckwith was charged with non-support of his wife and children since January 1. - Awarding to Mrs IBeckwith, she-would ft have brought the complaint had not her credit been exhausted.

She heard he had had an attack of heart trouble. When he went back next day be was told there was no work for him The day of his discharge he got drunk and did not get home ' until early morning.

NOT THIS DEMOCRAT. Ansonia Union Hen are BarKing up the Wrong Tree. The Ansonia labor men have been after Editor Emerson of the Sentinel for a long time, and the fight is still on. Yesterday's Bridgeport and Wa terbury Sunday Herald had an article attacking Mr Emerson, We are not fully acquainted with the facts which brought on the row between the An-; sonia newspaperman and the labor men, but we would suggest that the latter stick to the truth at least. Don't let a-sensational writer wring in a lot of stulf at the expense of labor men and labor unions in which there is not a vestige of truth. In yesterday's ar ticle appeared the following: , "Now he (Emerson) has adopted a clever scheme to get around this dif ficulty and to corral some f the union printing with which the city of An sonia abounds. A short while ago, it is said that he went to Waterbury and had a confab with -the Evening Demo crat of that city, which is a union pa per, and as a result arranged matters so that all printing which came to his sheet in Ansonia was' to be sent to the Democrat, where it would be printed, the union label used, and F. M. to get a large share of the profits." There is not a word of truth in the paragraph quoted above. It looks as though some one was spouting hot air to the Ansonia labor union men, and they are Just foolish enough to believe it . all without investigation. , The Democrat never did any job printing for Mr Emerson, neltner nas.it Deeu asked to do any. ANOTHER PROTEST Correspondent Who ThinHs Trolley Has Enough Already. Waterbury, Conn, March 3, 1904. Editor of .Democrat: . I lagree with jou with the ' stand that you,- have taken in regard to the trolley company owning the city with out paying anything for-it. i think we should not be too hasty in this trolley business and not do anything that we will be sorry for after. Look twice before jumping once lest you might land where you don't Want to. I think they have enough of the streets of the City without any more, and don't pay a cent for it I think the taxpayers of this city should or ganize for protection. There is more company than we people that are on the grand list know anything, about and If we get together., we can show it up. Come ' now, Mr Editor, whoop er up !ad let's get together and see where we're at. ' TABOD.

Fire broke out in a cigar factory under the Lyceum theater at 11;15 o'clock last night, and soon the entire block .was a mass of flames. Jt started "from a nat ural gas explosion, it is said. The1 Ly ceum! theater, one of the ' Reis circuit houses, owned by Colonel D. C. Robin son, was totally destroyed, the loss be ing $68,000. The rest of the block was badly damaged, and, the loss will be over $150,000. The Elks' lodge rooms were totally destroyed. Henry Boulle, a stage manager, was nearly suffocat ed by the smoke when rescued.' The Mamie Fleming Repertoire company lost its trunks and scenery. The thea ter burned like a tinderbox, and had the fire occurred at a theatrical per formance many would probably have lost their lives. At 1 o'clock this morn ing a burning rag was found, on the Auditorium stage. This theater is in the Realty building, next to the Ly ceum block. It is thought from this that both theaters were set on fire by aa incendiary. Darlington Dlnaater Victim. NEW YORK, March 7. With three bodies Just taken from the wreck of the Darlington hotel and a fourth body in sight, the total of the. death list now stands -at twenty-one. The workmen uncovered a bod near the front of the building lying under a mass of the flreprooflng composition and bent iron. Charles Sonti said it was that of his brother Banzl Sonti, who was twenty-eight years old, mar ried, living at 23 Pell street. Two oth er bodies were found near the station ary engine in the center of the build ing. The first was that of a man about fifty years old, five feet eight inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. The other was identified as that of William R. Qren; a cement worker. There was .still a body in sight far back among the wreck of iron and brickwork. The wreckers are working to get it out, but do not expect to reach it for some bours. Did Mr. Dye Send Poisoned CondyT BOONB, la., March T. Mrs. Sher man Dye is under, arrest here ebanged with having sent poisoned candy to Miss Rena Nelson at Pierre, S. D. Mis Nelson,' who is reported to be in a dying condition, was formerly aa' operator in the Boone Telephone Exchange.

Mr. and Mrs. Dye are reported to baa been separated since last Christmas. Mr. Dye whea told of the arrest of his wife : declared that he did not believe there was any foundation for tha charge against her. He admitted that tw knew THE V PERJURY CASES. Both Sides Confident that Question Will go to Supreme Court. It is the opinion of a large number of lawyers-.. that the demurrer to the complaint in the cases against Marsh and Vandcmark for perjury will be overruled and the accused will conse quently be tried. Attorney Kennedy, however, is not of that opinion, and says Judge Wheeler is as good a law yer as any in the city and better than some." The question to be settled has been decided both ways. The defense ciaim that the accused.cannot again be tried on any charge on the evidence that has been already litigated and de termined, and both Mr O'Neill and Mr Kennedy quotetTdecisions "by the score on that point. On the otuer hand, Mr Williams for the state quoted also' de cisions by. the score, supporting -j-s point. Both sides are confident that the question will have to go to the su preme court forfinal decision, anyway, Judge Wheeler pref erring to have that court decide it. All u.e lawyers, aow ever, say it is a very fine point that Judge Wheeler has been called upon to decide, and in view of the. importance and furore that has attached to the cases from the outset the decision 'by the supreme court will be awaited with a great deal of speculation by the local ' In caW Judge Wheeler rules against ' the defense, the trial will not be 1 stopped until the supreme court cle- cides the point. The case will go on and exceptions by the score will be 'taken andthe whole matter. will then go to the supreme court, in case tne jury gives a verdict against the ac cused. ' If tlfe jury decides for the ac cused, of course there will be nothing for the supreme court to try, the ac quittal of the accused being the main, point involved. It is expected that the case will not begin until late In the week, In case Judge Wheeler overrules the demurrer. THE EIGHT HOUR LAW. Davenport of Bridgeport Hade An other Attack on it Saturday (Special to Democrat) Washington, March 7. The house committee on labor resumed hearings on the eight hour bill last Saturday, I and the principal speaker was Daniel Davenport, of Bridgeport, who occu pied an hour and a 'half, with his ar guments against the passage of the bill. Mr Davenport started on an en tirely new line, of argument land showed that this eight hour law pro position was orijginated by the social ists. . He proved this statement by showing the constitution of the social ists and their various propaganda. Ills statements ' proved a groat sur prise to the committee as well" as to the labor, men present. .Mr Daven port also reiterated hiis statement that nine-tenths of the. laboring fnen i were opposed to the passage of thisi I bill as shown by actuial investfga- qon. ' ' "This ds probably the " last public hearing the committee wdll hold. Mr Davenport has appeared at three of thjgpB, Aid. has presented the case of the manufacturers las it has never been presented. before. He has made a splendid impression, and if, any bill is reported this session, dt will prob ably be so modified as to be of little practical value on the lines suggested by the labor unions. The impression still prevails down here, ' however, that no bill , will be reported this ses sion, . , . ...

The house has unanimously passed a bill, recommended in a message from Governor Hunt, the purpose of which Is to prevent the desecration of the United States flag and the use of the black flag in Porto Rico. The United States lighthouse tender Nina, the Bailors of which were recently charged with mutiny, has sailed for Pensacola for repairs manned by a crew from the gunboat Gloucester. The members of the crew of the Nina who were arrest ed for mutiny have been discharged, and several of them will remain here to swear a complaint against Captain William G. Cutler for false imprison ment. The men claim that they were shanghaied in New York and that when they recently signed what they believed was the payroll they learned that they had unwittingly contracted for service on the Nina for a year. Floods at York, Pa. YORK, Pa., March 7. Flood condi tions along the York county shore of the Susquehanna river are at present rather uncertain. The ice is being held by Hartmans island, near New Holland, but it is expected to start at any minute, and if it does great dam age is expected.

Shelly island, near Goldsboro, is partly submerged, and on it are John and George Burger, their mother, their wives and eight children.
