WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1904.
0 POLICE COURT DOINGS. liquor Dealers Fined $10 and Cost for Violation of Screen Law. The adjourned cases of D. J. Ma- naney, Chris Dunphy, David Sheeliey ami William Byron liquor dealers, charged with violation of the screen law at their respective places of ousu- vnesa on Sunday, February 28, occupied the attention of Judge Jfea&iey at to day's session of the city court, which lasted until 12 o'clock nearly. The evi dence in the Mahaney case was sub mitted last week, but the decision was reserved until to-day in order that Judge Peasley mignt visit the saloon and examine it. The case against Chris . Dunphy, whose saloon is at U30 Bank street. was the first heard to-day. Sergeant JFagan, Officers Halpin and Walsh tes tified that on the iSunday in question the awning was down and the win dows on the sidewind rear were. closed with shutters, thus obstructing the light so that it was impossible to see more than a few feet inside of the sa loon. The ofiicers testified that the awning is generally up during week days, but down on Sundays. Chris Dunphy stated thatthe windows have been 'dosed with shutters since he started in business, that there was no special reason for the awning being down on the Sunday in question, that he was out of town on that day and s far as ' he knew no business was done In his saloon on that day. Rob ert Walker. Thomas B. Walker, Attor ney Clohessey and John Clohessey were willing to testify that they looked Into the saloon from the sidewalk and could see all the way in, though the awning was down and the shutters were fast ened. , Decision was reserved until the Sheehey case was tried., ' ; In the Sheehey i case, Sergeant Fa gan, Officers Hickey and Noonan testi fied that on Sunday, February 28, they stood on the sidewalk, stooped down and looked into the saloon. They could see only as far as the bar. The shutters in the rear -were closed and in the front the view was somewhat obstructed by a pile of bottles and by the curtains being pulled down two or i three feet, in the rear the light is ob structed by a high hoard fence. The saloon is from five to eight feet front the: sidewalk and several feet below tie level of th sidewalk. . Sheriff .William Oillette, Philip HaydeiT . of Ayer street, a teamster; John J. Daw son, the furniture dealer; John Mc- ISvoy, grocer; lichael Lovett of Fuller street and James Moore, Insurance agent, testified that they had stood with their faces u against Sh&eb.ey's window and had seen into the rear wall. The shutters were closed. In his arguments against a conviction In the Dunphy and Sheehey cases, Attor ney . Kennedy stated that there had been no Intent to violate the screen law, that the saloons on the Sunday in Question were Just the same ! as on many Sundays previously, but there bad pever been any complaint. The men were charged with a criminal of fense ' and a criminal Intent should therefore be shown. But the state had not shown such Intent. If these shut ters or devices -were wrong, why didn't the county commissioners or the prose cuting agent order them removed or altered? , Attorney Kennedy said that any 6fficer who could not see Into the rear of Dunphy s saloon even though the awning was down and the shutters closed and the day dark, must be color blind. His eyesight must be very poor. ; Attorney Pierce " stated that therewas no doubt that the law was (violated. It was not necessary, to chow a criminal intent What the sa loon keepers must do is to leave their shatters open and their awnings tip and remove all other devices for shut ting out the light on that day. , -In passing decision upon the cases Judge Peasley said; "A free and un obstructed view of the saloons mean that an officer passing along the side walk should be -able to see clearly into those places. It does not, mean, that te should go up to' the window, shade ols eyes and peer ' into the places. Chese men accused have succeeded in obstructing the view. But in all cases tuere appears to be some excuse. Mar !haney and Dunphy claim to have been burglarized, but the shutters in their places are a much better protection against light than against burglars. I "And all of them guilty and impose the tminimum fine of $10. and costs upon Wen." An appeal was taken in each Attorney . Russell defended William Byron, who was charged with s the Rama rffpTisA : ThA evident in this ase "as given by Sergeant Fagan, Officer a Halpln and Walsh was that shutters on the rear windows of the saloon obstructed the light and ren dered an open view of the place 1m- possiDie. it was snown oy jne ae fense that the shutters, have been there since the place was built in 1888. A &ne of $10 and costs was also Imposed In this case and an appeal was taken. Permission was secured by Attorney Tierce to have the liquors' seized on the premises of Mrs Elizabeth A." Law Iot, 770 East Main street, about two weeks ago, destroyed by Chief Bgan. (Attorney Pierce stated that in all prob ability no warrant would be Issued for the arrest of Mrs kawler. , Yesterday Sergeant Blakeley and iBeveral policemen paid an unexpected wislt to the back kitchen of Giovanni XaTidatIs at 99 Charles street and seized a number of boxes filled with wines, gins, whiskies , and brandies, and ' also a keg of beer. They were fcaken to the police station, where they will remain until they are ordered de stroyed by the court. It Is possible j that a warrant may be Issued for the arrest of Laudatis on a charge of bar fing liquors with intent to jsell without t& license. " ". N. B. Yamashira, a Japanese cook, rwlio came here about two weeks ago and secured a position at a house on West Maih street, Indulged In too much "booze yesterday and as a result was arrested by Officer Walsh. After 'being given time to sober up at the po aice station be was allowed to take a train for New York. ' Peeh"blbiT "Vaie Uronjjht ST10. NEW YORK, March 21.

Much attention has been attracted during the' past few days to the dis play of gold money in the windows of Strobel's jewelry store, and many eyes have feasted on the glittering ex hibition. The money, which is in various denominations from $2.50 to $20 pieces, is the $1,000 which Is to contribute the capital prize at the Knights of Columbus fair, which opens in City hall on Monday evening, April 4. To be entitled to a share in the distribution of. this prize and $500 in smaller ones it Is necessary to pur chase a book which sells for $1 and contains a dozen tickets. Many of these books hava already been sold and they are now purchasable at any time. Some difficulty has been exper ienced In securing an attraction satis factory to the committee, but the re cent vlsdt of Chairman Hynes to New York, during which be spent two days In the leading booking agency there, It Is expected will bear fruit in the en gagement of a novelty that will prove very popular. Some minor attrac tions will also b arranged that will' make this fair a popular one, not alone for the Knights of Columbus themselves, but also for the local pub lic generally; The f air opens on Monday evening, April 4, and will' continue during the week.

American line steamship New York. Captain Young, from New York for Plymouth, Cherbourg' and Southamp ton, met with two mishaps, grounding off Cape la Hague, France, in the early morning and later coming into collision In the English channel with the Peninsular and Oriental steamship Assayed under contract, to the British government and used as a troop ship, bound for Bombay with 500 troops on board. . . ' -1--;'.' , The New York grounded while ap proaching Cherbourg early in , the morning during a fog. The sea was smooth, and the tide' was rising. , and an hour and a half after she grounded the vessel was floated without assist-' ance. Her bottom was damaged, and there was water in the holds, but she was able to proceed. During the voyage up the channel a ' dense fog descended. When ' off Hurst castle, England, the Assaye sud denly appeared, and it. was found im possible to avoid a collision. The New York's bow crashed intoi the Assay e'e Starboard bow, tearing a great gap In that vessel. The New York's bowsprit and figurehead were earrled away, and ' the latter was smashed into fragments.. ' .. There was great excitement, but no panic on . either vessel. The boats of the Assaye ; were lowered, and the troops were mustered, but the bulk head of the troop ship saved her. Both vessels were able fto enter Southamp ton, and the New York was docked for temporary repairs. It will be im possible to estimate the damage to the New York until she has been put into drydock. '.',''.' If is believed' that both vessels have been somewhat seriously injured. An other troop ship will replace the As saye.1;' '. -,.V,."; '; '.' ;-''."'' James Sellers, a passenger on the New York, says that while he was at luncheon there was a grating noise, followed by a tremendous shock. Every one ran to the deck, and it was found that the New York's bow was firmly fixed in the side of the Assaye. Mr. Sellers way close enough to observe the marvelous discipline aboard the troop ship. Not a second was lost There was no sign of a hurry,' and while the boats were being prepared for launch ing the soldiers were mustered with the precision of an ordinary drill. "As the vessels parted," concluded Mr. Sellers, "we saw a gaping hole in the Assaye ten feet wide, and sticking on our stem was a portmanteau and other portable property. There was no panic on our boat. Had we struck the Assaye sunk." amldshlp she would hare Cut Arterlea ot Botk Wrliti. , SCHENECTADY, T., March 21. R. W.

He is said to be gaining In strength, and there Is less extreme nervousness. BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS. City Engineer Directed to Proceed With the WorK of Kilduff Fountain. The board of public works held a special meeting Saturday afternoon, Mayor Elton presiding, and transacted a big batch of business. One of the important questions grappled with was the legality of the license of J. E. Harrington to main tain a cafe at the southeast corner of the green, where he has been doing business for many years on a license issued to him by the aldermen at $100 per annum. The board was of the opinion that the space is needed for other purposes, but nobody appeared to know whether or not Mr Harrington can remain there as long as he com plies with the provisions of the vote authorizing him to maintain a cafe at that point. In order to get at the facts and see what rights the city has in the premises, it was decided to refer, the matter to the city attorney for an opin ion. The committee appointed to carry out the proposed comfort station pro ject reported progress, but said that nothing definite had been decided upon so far as location is concerned. They thought it would be well to build the structure on the green near the foun tain or at Grand and -Bank streets, be neath the shade of the giant elmtree that stands in what the former board practically decided should be convert ed Into a bower -of beauty and then named Blakeslee square. This Is quite a radical departure from the original plan and it is thought that if the board selects Grand and Bank streets as the site of the comfort station Blakeslee will fight .... The city engineer was authorized and directed to proceed with the work of completing the Kilduff fountain In Stanley park. The engineer was also added to the committee appointed at uie last meeting to purchase road ap paratus. The committee now consists of the mayor and the engineer. A communication was 'received from State Highway Commissioner. Macdon ald calling attention, to the need of making repairs upon macadam roads every spring. - It was referred to the superintendent of streets. The super intendent, pf streets was instructed to proceed with the work of grading West Main street from the old city line to Grand view avenue. The board voted to recommend that sidewalks be laid on West Main street, between the points above mentioned, the law date to be July 1, 1604. A communication was submitted showing the location of the different electric arc and incan descent lights in the city of Water bury for which the city is paying. In order to enable the policemen to make accurate reports of every light that falls to burn as per contract it was voted to request the trolley company to put stensil numbers on the poles, be ginning at 1 and continuing upward according as new lights are Installed. It was voted to recommend to- the aldermen that sewers be laid ' in Branch, Grant and Griggs streets. A hearing was decided upon for March 29 regarding the layout of Hawkins street.:' i' , ' ': 'f THE LAKE BOAT. Spirited Fight in Congress Over Adopt ing LaKe Submarine Boat. (Special to Democrat.) Washington, March 21. The strug gle for the adoption by the army for coast defense, or the navy for general use, of the Lake submarine boat an Interesting Connecticut 5 Invention, Is causing considerable ' discussion in Washington at the present time. The first fight for and against tlie adoption of this boat was on the naval appro priation bill, when Congressman Hill carried the day and b&d Inserted Into the "bill an appropriation for, submarine boats, without naming the kind of boat to be selected. "' It .was, however, In; the senate that an out and out fight was made tor Abe adoption aof . the ' Protector or another boat of the same type. The proposition here was to have the gov ernment purchase this boat for the use of the school of submarine def ensw connected with the army. Senator Piatt secured the adoption of this amendment to the fortification bill, and $259,000 was the amount allowed. During the course of the discussion in the Senate.. Senator Scott made a rather remarkable statement, when lie spoke aa follows: "I am satisfied In my own mind, while of course I can not establish It. that the success of the Japanese torpedo boat expedition against the Russian fleets at Port Arthur wa largely due to the fact that Japanese were cooks upon one of the Lake boats. We have learned in con versation that a Japanese was employ ed as cook on a Lake boat. He was a splendid cook. He was verv Inquis itive. He stayer! with the Lake people for n year. Then he told them he could find them another cook; that he bad to leave. A seebnd , one was found. He stayed a year, and he was very inquisitive, and he manifested great Interest In the boat. Then he departed and said he could find them a third cook. I have no doubt that these very- cooks are to-day engaged in the expedition against the Russian cruisers and torpedo boats, their em ployment being . based upon the in formation they received while they were serving as cooks upon the. Lake boat." While the amendment passed the senate in good shape, it struck a snag in the housp. It was insisted that this provision had had no consideration bv the house committee, and it was there fore voted to send the whole bill back to the committee on appropriations. where it now is. A sub-committee has charge of the bill, .and Congressman Litauer. of New York, is the chairman of it. He has made arrangements for a hearing on the Lake proposition, when Congressman Hill and Captain Simon Lake will go before them and explain the merits of the boat. No date hag as yet been named for this hearinsr. but the bill will probably come before the house , soon after the postofflce appropriation bill is disposed of. A lively fight is expected when it does get into the house. . Crew Wer Sa-rd Yty Jumping. ELM IRA, N. Y.,.March 21. Two fast freights on the Lackawanna railroad collided near Bath.
