WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1904.

The board of public -works met last ; sewer on ..ue other side of my property, Alight, Mayor Elton, presiding, and but I object to paying for 'it until-it transacted consiaeraoie Dusiness. On recommendation of City Engineer Caims, the superintendent of water i rwas authorized to employ a mgnt; vu oegmuuig 10 get lo a pomt wueie -watchman at the Benedict street office, j it would h'aYe to be fought out by the whose duty it will be to remain there j lawyers. It was finally agreed to all night in readiness to take prompt ac j bridge the chasm by recommending to Hon w-Jaen anything is reported out of j the- aldermen that the city be author order in the water department. Mr j ized to construct a sewer in front of Gross thought this end could be ob- j the balance of Mr Bohl's property on tained bv installing an indicator in the i Leavenworth street house or at the residence of the superintendent ' of water and thus save the expense of an additional man; but Mr Cairns didn't like t this plan and remarked that the proper thing for the board to dp was to consider the most effective way of guarding against a repetition of the trouble they had the other night and get around to the question of expense later. Mr Jackson thought the board would be "up against it" on the money question before September, but the mayor while manifesting a disposition to let it stand until the board nad time to think It over, was favorably Impressed with the, idea and thought that precautionary measures such as Mr Cairns had suggested wouia nave ies srave out. A'hearing was given to parties inter- town road ten' feet back from and par allel with the street line. Some time ago the city tried to get a fifteen-foot ixjxQ mere, out uie uureau uj. assa ment could not find enough benefits to offset the damages, and now an effort Klf ttose who" aared" dioi ! o with such matters and inquiring want any line, others had no particular i? ltT7a3T?rfvughi before them olSectioS a few favored the proposl- T The Kev Father Senesao, pastor of Hon tw1 Perrv O Morris wanted the St Ann's church, asked for a rebate 2?teenSot Sr none al Mr on the City hall rent during the time Goes suggested that those who want" was used by the pans the an vT flfteen-foot line could have it by rmal fair.

A similar vote was passed with reference to the laying of sidewalks in that street from the Bun ker Hill Toad to Aurora street. "While the Watertown road people were present, A. H. Wells asked why it was that he and his. neighbors have to pay 25 per cent more for city water than people In- the inside district.

It was passed. . Hearings were given to parties inter ested in the construction of sewers in portions of Grant, Branch and Griggs i streets. They were favorably recom mended to tle aldermen. Valentine Bohl was heard relative to a sewer assessment on Cedar street. Mr Bohl said he had paid for as much of his property as is sewered and that he would pay for the rest as soon as the city- constructed a sewer in front f It Mr Cairns said it was not a question &a to whether or not there was a sewer in front of his premises, but was he benefited by the sewer system that furnished the basis for sewer as sessments, and gave the city attorney as his authority for the statement. 2ur Bohl showed no signs of wilting, how rer, and remarked that he would pay for nothing that he had not received.

Attorney Wood appeared before Judge Robinson in the superior court this morning and asked for a postpone ment of the ease of the Rev Vincent Jilloni8 against Constable Walter B. Lannen for $1,000 damages for false Imprisonment and arrest. 'The motion was opposed by Attorney Bauby, coun sel for the constable. The court did not grant the motion, but ordered the case taken off the assignment list for the present. Had it taken its course as assigned last Saturday it would fol low the case now on and would proba bly begin to-morrow afternoon or Fri day morning. There appears to be some apprehension as to the where abouts of Mr Dillonis, for whom a bond of $140 to prosecute his case hag been filed by Mary Yankaunasi. If the case was called and he not present her bond would suffer. This case grew out of what is known as the "red pepper cases" which were heaTd in the city court "some time ago, Annie Rudaiczute testified against the accused, three or four young men, members of Mr Dillonis's congregation. After the hearing Mr Dillonis accosted the girl on the street and threatened and slandered her, it was said. How ever, she brought suit against him is able to pay that sum and he was taken to Jail and kept there a couple of months. A short time ago he was re leased in a manner that appeared to the girl's counsel as rather mysterlous When he leit town recently is not known exactly, but his friends say he is In Philadelphia on missionary work. He was telegraphed at that place yes terday, but no response was received, "hence the apprehension of his friends. A case in which every manufacturer and factory worker in the city ought to be interested was begun before Judge Robinson in the superior court to-day. It is the case of Alesandro Fil Jepponi against the Waterbury Clock Oo in which the plaintiff asks damages of $5,000 for the loss of the two first Anew of his left hand. In his com plaint he alleges he sustained this loss ihrotlj. the negligence of his foreman jrhl2e -fcs-Tra employ edU-npott a power comes. The mayor said there could be no ambiguity about Mr BoM's pos.- tlon on the question and thought it --euar street, Kendrick Simons of Cherry street was heard relative to a special sewer assessment amounting te$108. Mr Si mons said it was all right and won dered' why it was" not levied long ago. T. J. Coyle, representing the Hul Street Improvement club, called atten tion to the need of an electric arc light at the corner of Hill street and Johnson avenue. He said they have a club in that part of the town and that one of the aldermen from the second ward visited the place a few times and the members had to meet him down lie way with lanterns. Mr Coyle also said that he hoped the city would be able to grade the street when the pipe Is being laid for the elevated ser vice and avoid tearing it up twice. He was informed that at the present time there is no money available for the light he had reference to and was thanked cordially for the suggestion regarding the grading of "the street The petition of P. W. Connor for abatement of a street assessment, re ferred to the board by the aldermen, wag sent back to that board without recommendation, the members taking the ground that they had nothing to for investigation and report, Mr Goss remarking as it passed along that he should vote for no more connection larger than two inches unless the city put in a shut off at the opposite side of the curb so that the firemen can shut off the water in case such action might at any time be deemed expedi ent.

The only other bid received for that work Pasquale Contaldi, but as he to give prices on ome quan- titles it was declared informal, G. G. Rlggs got the contract for the gate house and inlet chamber, the amount of his bid being $3,215. He was the only bidder. Mf Goss was not at all pleased wltn price for concrete masonry, over $14 a yard, and said that he considered it pretty s - but the engineer didn't think so. The contracts for the high service mains were awarded to Charles ; N.

A. Rennacker, which place he immediately resigned. Mr Sullivan now goes back to the same establishment as proprietor. The store changed hands yesterday and was immediately closed for Inventory. It will open up under the new manage ment in a few days. In a fire early this morning which did only small damage in the building at No 738 Main street, Hartford, oojeu pied on the first floor by F.

The injured are Miss Annie Miller, cuts and burns; Mrs John J. Boucher, slight burns; John Allen, cuts and burns. Miss Miller and Mr Allen were taken to the Hartford hospital. .

Property Owners Ara Growling But They Must Settle Just the Same. Troperty owners in Waterbury, espe cially those in the kecond district, are very much disturbed over the size of their rate bills. To be sure there al ways has been a little criticism about such things, but it is a trifle more pro nounced this , time than ever before. Very few gave this matter a thought last fall and many who didn't think the subject of suffleient Importance to express an opinion upon it at that time are now the loudest in denuncia tion of the methods that have created such conditions, and want to know whither we are drifting. There is no use losing any sleep over what has been done, but good could be accom plished in the future if everybody would give these matters more atten tion at the proper time. Usually a man who opens his moau -at a city meeting in opposition to high taxes is i stigmatized as a cunning politician I playing to the grand stand, jeered and j ridiculed41n . some quarters, black guarded in others, and as a result few j care to make targets of themselves about such affairs,' so that the situation is going from bad to worse and if it keeps on owners of real estate in the full taxation district will find out to their sorrow that they kept their eyes .closed too long for their own good. A man who thinks nothing of incurring big expenses probably for the benefit of some private corporation or wide awake land speculator, and saddling the burden upon the whole people, is lauded to the skies and spoken of as a progressive citizen, while the fellow who contends that everybody should pay for what he receives is too often referred to as a nincompoop and branded as a simpleton that is standing in his own light and needs to be saved from himself. It. is too bad that uie city election does not take place in the month of May instead of in the fall. If this were so people who pay tne freight would not have to be run down by ward workers and brought to the polls in carriages. Of course the pub lic is largely to blame for the excessive rate of taxation. Almost every otuer man you meet wants something done in his street, and while this disposition is shown, officials, no matter how well disposed, find it hard to legislate wise ly. Besides that, under the system of taxation in Waterbury owners of unim proved property in the full taxation dis trict are working under a great disad vantage and the burden is sure to be heavier. The demand for public im provements in the first district is enor mous and unless some more equitable basis of taxation ig adopted than the city has at the present time property owners in the outside district will con tinue to; prosper while tneir neignbors will be puzzled to make both ends meet. In the meantime alj who can should come down promptly with their water rents and tax bills, and as many of tnem .as have dogs would make no mistake to bear in mind while they ars in the City hall corridor that the town clerk wants to see them. POLITICAL POINTERS. If en Who Want to Go to St. Louis Hearst Wins Again The active interest of Connecticut's democracy in the campaign is indicated by the strife for the honor of being chosen to represent the party at the national convention at. st Louis in July, says the Hartford Times. Candidates are numerous in every county for one or the other of the fourteen places on the state delegation and in one or two of the counties, notably New Haven and New London, the rivalry is ;very earnest and active. The two delegates at large will prob ably be the Hon Homer S. Cummings of Stamford, who is Connecticut's na tional committeeman, and Mayor Bryan F. Mahan of New London. For. the four district delegates the names mentioned are: , - First district Ex-Mayor Ignatius A. Sullivan of Hartford, William F. ONeil of Hartford. Second district Alexander Troup of New Haven, Louis A. Fisk of Bra--ford. Third district Ex-Governor Waller of New London, Charles W. Cpmstock of Montville: - , Fourth district John J. Walsh of Nor walk, chairman, of the state cen tal committee. The candidates mentioned for county delegates are: Hartford county Mayor . Samuel Bassett, New Britain; Henry C. Dissell, West Hartford. New Haven county W. E. Thorns, Waterbury. New London county Dr P. II. Har- rinian, Norwich. Pairfieh airfield county Colonel T. J. Mur phy of Bridgeport. (Bridgeport delega tion's choice.) Windham county Newton rhillips, Killingly. Litchfield county Edward L. Rob erts, North Canaan. Middlesex county ,1. Taylor Flf nu, Middletown . Tollaufl county Senator Thomas F. Noone. Rockville. DES, MOINES, , la., May 4. The in. dlcations are that the Iowa Democrats will send a delegation to the St. Louis convention instructed for William Ran dolph Hearst for president by their ac tion today. The opponents, of Mr. Hearst have played their last card and lost, and unless the unexpected hap pens the followers of Hearst have firm control of the state convention. Chairman Jackson of the state cen tral committee, who had been counted with the opposition, has come out for Hearst, voting with other members of the Hearst committee, and this defeat ed a plan of the antis to determine the regular delegations in the state central committee instead of In the credentials committee of the convention. The anti-Hearst leaders believed they had a majority in the convention and hoped to seat their delegates from sev eral contested counties in this manner. The fight over the contested delega tions ia being foaght in the convention, and even many of Heaxsf s opponents admit that he is strong enough in num bers to win. . Although It is " predicted by many that there will be a bolt of the anti Hearst men if they find themselves un able to stop the Hearst sentiment, the party leaders Bay that this is improba ble. Congressman M. J. Wade, who has been a leader of the opponents of Mr. Hearst, said: "The conservatives will not bolt. In my judgment they will fight to the finish, but will see the convention through regardless of its celnv." arding's 72-74 South Main st, Telephone 2fO.
