Chief Bgan was denounced, Sunday ball playing wa condemned and a general attack was made up "on the desecration of the Sabbath day at the annual mass meeting . and convention of the - Waterbury Christian Endeavor union, which was held In the, Second Congregational church iast night! The ivosltion of H. M. Scott, superintendent of the Sunday school at the Bunker Hill chapel, who is being sued ' by. Ceorge Knapp for alleged! slanderous remarks in regard, to Knapp's saloon at the Driving park, was endorsed, and confidence was expressed in the truth and Integrity of his statements. Last night's meeting was one of the most Interesting and inxportant held by the local Christian Endeavor union in a long time. Ten of the fourteen churches in the union were 'represent ed. The churches represented were the First Congregational, Second Con gregational, First Methodist, First Bap tist, Second Baptist and the A. M. E. Zion of this city, the Watertown Con gregational, the Middlebnry Congrega tional, the Union City Baptist and the Oakville Congregational. Tha fniifywinc set nf resolutions de nouncing Sunday base ball was read and adopted: Resolved, First, that as repreSenta-i-poa nt tli "Vrtnnff Prfwnla's societies of Christian Endeavor of the city of Wa: twhnTv in convention assembled we do pledge our unequivocal support to every movement making here and else where for the better observance and more rigid enforcement of laws designed for tne protection or tne puu lic peace on the Sabbath day, and that we are aetermmea ny gopa ewmiiiB rtA nlons Admonition to use our influ ence as individuals to encourage in the public mind a reverence ror mat tmy which has from the beginning been deemed a sacred heritage to Protes tants In America. Resolved, Second, that we particu Inrlir evrvress our indorsement of the nroAB mnrla hv th citizens Of the city who live near and adjacent to tue Driving park against tne piaymg oi base ball on ' Sunday, on: property owned by the city. . That we believe Hiifli rmrnes are a menace to the public peace, that they disturb public worship and turn tne day set apart uy iaw n rest into dissipation, wantonness and tumult. . - ' Resolved. Third, , that this conven tion through these resolutions petition tiio Vionrr? nt rnb1ir safetv to vleilantly enforce the statutes safeguarding the public vpeace on Sunday, assuring the board of our unqualified sympathy and support. ,. Resolved, Fotirth, that we do now nsure our brother, H. M. Scott, of our confidence .In the; integrity of his state ments recently made before the city officials in ; which he bore testimony against open and flagrant violations of law, and that we call upon all friends of good order to sustain him against the effort of law breakers to intimi date nd embarrass .him. . Resolved, Fifth, that a copy of these resolutions be given to each of the city papers for publication, that a copy of the first. Second and third be presented to the board of public safety, and that they be spi-ead on our minutes; and that the pastors whose churches are represented In the Waterbury Christian Endeavor4 union , be requested to read them to their congregations on the coming Sabbath. The resolutions were read by E. H. Thomas. The Rev Oscar Haywood spoke in favor f their adoption. He was emphatic in hlg protest against the desecration of the Sabbath day and said "the time has come for some one to take a decided stand In this matter, and as'thls Is, the only representative church gathering held in this clty.'it IS right and proper that these resolutions should be presented and adopted here. I do not wish to encroach upon the per sonal liberties of any memberi of this community, and the persons who wisn to play ball on Sunday have a right to do so, providing they do not interfere with or encroach upon the personal lib erties of any otuer person; but this and more they do do, when the street cars going to and from the places where they play are-,loaded with : drunken men, making it unsafe" for a respecta ble woman to be out, and the day turned into a day of tumult, and dissi pation instead of a holy day of rest." The speech of the Rev Mr Brooks of Simonsville was' of a-more sensational nature. Chief Egan was the object of his attack, for he looks upon the chief-of-poliee as the primary cause' of Sun day being desecrated by the playing of base ball. In the opinion, of the rev erend divine the present chief must be removed before the good law abiding citizens can hope for anything better in regard to the. enforcement Of the laws against Sunday base ball. 'Mr Brookg said: , "Everybody knows- who is responsible for the present condition of affairs. It is the present chief -of-police, and I would like to tell him so to his face, and if there is a reporter present I hope he will quote me as say ing so. There will never be a change for the better until -we oust him from his; job. I would like an amendment to that effect." .Though his remarks were .received with applause,- Mr Brooks's amendment .was not adopted. - An offeVtory was rendered by, A. .T. Blakesley and "Onward Christian Solr cllers" was sung ;by the congregation. The RevAllyn H. Foster of Cornwall delivered an, eloquent address on "Faith in Christ'',' and "Personal Conduct." The following report was submitted by the nominating, conpnittee and ac cepted: . ' . " , . President, O. F. Carpenter, Second Congregational. , V Secretary and treasurer, Mrs F. Q.

WATERTOWN JOTTINGS More Light Needed On Our Dark Streets Every Night. The traveling about town is anything but pleasant just at present, owing to tne torn up condition of the highways. In spite of all these necessary 'condi tions more lanterns should be placed just north of the brick store, or some one will have a suit for damages on their hands. ' '; ' ' The Foresters held their regular meeting last evening.

Young Hinman has secured a posi tion at Kielty's grocery store. Many complaints are heard daily concerning the tri-weekly entrance oi a beer wagon into town.

The Knights will be assisted by the Young Men's club of the Methodist church, who have kindly" consented to , render some of their glee club muaic. The boys take v- this work with enthusiasm, since If they succeed they can go off on a camping trip this summer. ; oakville Happenings For the last few weeks the weather has been exceptionally favorable for all vegetation. The country,, which only a short time ago,' appeared lonely and bare, is becoming rapidly clad in all the beauties of spring. Every where now there is music in ' the air pleasing to the ear, beautiful flowers at each step gratifying to the eye, and an indescribable appearance in all nature capable of filling, the most delicate soul with delight. The birds seem more happy and tame because they can easily hide themselves and their nests in the leafy trees and their vari ed colors more beautifully tinged for being surrounded with blossoms. But to all this only the poet can do justice, and therefore we wish to make only a short reference to it. The Httehcock Hardware Co of Wa tertown are : laying pipes to Hunger ford's drug store from the well lately dug near Slade's storehouse.
