WATERBITRY EVENING DEMOCRAT. SATURDAY, MAY 14, 1904. 0 AS YOU LIKE IT. Soma Stray Leaves From a Reporter's Note BooK. Some of the boss masons are humor ists. One of them -wants to know why , this strike was not started hist winter! when there -was little or nothing aoing ! In the building line. This is in line with the remarks of the woman who told her daughter that she thought it a very foolish thing to go sleighing in the real cold weather and told her tot tell the young man to put it off until summer. . ' Many thought It would be difficult to give a successful dance in Water I bury after the City hall could no longer be secured for such purposes, but the few festivities held in other places the ,past month under the heading of barn dances prove that the dancing public will not miss the hall. Where there is a will there is a way and so long as Waterbury has young people , they never "will come short of lots of places In -which they can dance and make merry. The barn dances of Curran's employes and Company . G , were the most successful affairs eveT held iu the city and such novelties are now all the . rage. It is nothing but simply a return to the old way of doing things, a resumption of the kitchen dance, where there is always more fun to the square Inch than a crowd could have In the finest hall in the country. r .:-r',i:r:' Some of Sheriff Gillette's friends abandoned him when they learned that he threw up his hands without making a fight against Senator Tracy for a place on the republican state central committee. For at least a week prior to the date set for the con vention Gillette's friends never tired telling about Will's pluck. They knew he would not cower before the ma chine, but would stand right up to the rack until the last gun was fired. But it seems that Mr Gillette concluded that discretion was the better part or valor and knowing what it means to run counter with the big fellows he retired from the race much .to the chagrin of a large number of local republicans who were bound to push him to the front. It la now being ( noised around that Gillette showed no signs of quitting until somebody whis- . pered to him not to get the state ma chlne after him else he would soon go to the Mock a la Itigney fashion and when the sheriff heard this he prompt ly threw up the sponge and Senator Tracy marched to victory without op position. "We don't intend to do anything next Tuesday night." said one of the master builders. "That's -where we drove our peg and we'll start from that point to conduct our affairs without hiring a brass band to herald the fact trt h -nnblip.' You mark tnv word for it that the day is not far distant when-' - you will see a notice to tne effect upon the office, door of all the principal fac tories in town stating that no union men are wanted. When the big fel lows do this then it will be an easy matter for the little ones to follow suit. They've got to in order to hold their business. Nobody feels, this more keen ly than the manufacturers. The busi ness they have here naturally belongs Aieowfiero nnfl nnipRs it- to rVloselv safe guarded it will soon go. Think of men doing business where tney get coai iot a dollar a ton and 'everything else In proportion, while here they have to pay the highest penny for everything and .then keep up a continual warfare with their help. It was the absence of labor troubles that made Waterbury what it Is and 'I regret to say that labor upheavals are now compassing her -ruin. The situation is serious for people who cannot pull up their stakes and move out In a, hurry and I think we owe It to ourselves to make, one bold stand to "protect ourselves. We ought to have the co-operation of every working man who wants to make a permanent home In Waterbury and un less I mistake my guess we can find - enough to come here to fill the places of men who prefer to walk the streets rather than work unless they can hold both ends of the stick." , N.

The place popularly known as the Mixologists' club, situated over, P. T. Hayes' cafe on South Main street, was closed a few day s ago by Mr Hayes, owner of the premises iu which the club was located. It was generally supposed that the club was run for the benefit of the Bartenders' union, but In fact that organization had no connection whatsoever with it, for it was conducted by and for the sole ben efit of a certain Individual. It was not difficult to become la member of the "Mixologists."

Search for it in Court To-Day Form er Court Official Has it. After being ten years in the district court, light is beginning to shed itself on the , whereabouts of $400 due Mrs Catherine ey as administratrix on the estate of the late Keron Ney. The matter came up at short calenuur this morning iu a hearing on defendant's motion for payment of funds in the affair of the city against the estate of Keron Ney. Tne foundation of the con tention is this: Some ten or twelve years ago certain property belonging to the estate of Keron Ney on Baldwin street was foreclosed and sold for as sessments, taxes and liens due the city. The sum of $2,000 wa8 realized from th sale and about $1,400 of this went for expenses of the sale and for what was due to the city. The remaining $000 seemed to have disappeared until after repeated motions for production in court $200 was paid. Now the ques tion is what has become of the other $400? The auctioneer of the occasion was a city official whose identity seems to have been lost in the lapse of time. This morning Attorney O'Neill, as counsel for Mrs Ney, demanded that the $000 be paid over to her as admin istrator because she was entitled to it. Judge Cowell replied that he did hot know she jiad any right to it, that the matter was in court som ten years and somewing should be done about it. , ...... , . , Mr O'Neill said that the money be longs to the estate of Mr Ney and therefore to his widow as administra trix, not to the officers of the district court, who, in Mr O'Neill's opinion, are keping the money. Clerk Root could not stand sucn an insinuation as this and he answered that about ten years ago an order was issued by the court and that only $200 was paid. He had ho right to accept such money in that way, but he did it to oblige. , : -, Mr O'Neill replied that Mrs Ney had a life interest in the estate and there fore is entitled to this $600, and the reason it has not been paid to her was because of the non-workings of the court. It was about high time, he said, that Mrs Ney should be paid the money, it is all she has to live upon. She is entitled to it and that was all there could be said about it. Clerk Root: "For ten years ' you have been trying to find out who as this money." . i M Mr O'Neill:' "And for ten years we have been unable to find out who has got it, because the officers of this court lied like the de the very dick ens." There 'was a great burst of laughter at the slip Mr O'Neill came near making. Resuming, he said: "Now the officers of this court said Dan Webster had it, but Dan is not here. He is dead, and we can't find out whether or not he ever had it. Now we want this money. We will get it, too for an officer of this court has got It; he put It in his pocket and kept it. City Attorney Kellofirsr: "I. frr on. want to see this money paid over to the putty. ' : ' Judge Cowell: "The money is large ly in the hands of a former officer of this court, therefore the court is not responsible. If Mrs Ney Is theproper person to be paid this money the court will Issue an order that it shall be paid her and she must give her receipt to the clerk and her bondsman hall also give a receipt when she is paid it." Clerk Root: "That makes me respon sible for money I have not received." Mr O'Neill: "No, it doesn't." Judge Cowell "Pay over what you have got, get Mrs Ney's receipt as ad ministrator and also of her bondsman, and that will make them responsible." Clerk Root "Then I don't see where I ETPt off." That closed the discussion in court for tne present. A few moments later Attorney Kennedy, counsel for the heirs informed Mr Root that he would hold him responsible for any money paid to Airs Ney that belonged to the estate. FELL FROM HOUSE; DIED AT HOSPITAL , Rowe Goldsmith of the Middlebury road, a mason in the employ of Con tractor Griffin of Watertown fell from the residence of Mrs Elizabeth Culle- ton at the corner of Rutledge and East Main streets shortly after 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, reclvlng injuries from which he died at the Waterbury hospital. Mr Goldsmith Goldsmith was pointing a chimnoy and had erected a temporary scaffolding to enable him to reach his work. The staging gave way and he 'fell to the roof and then rolled along the shingles and fell to the ground, a dozen or more bricks going with him, some of which it is thought, struck him and inflicted at least a few of the gashes in his head. His right wrist was broken, his head and face badly battered and he was ;also ' injured internally. He was removed to tne hospital in ljun ny's ambulance where he died in less than half an hour a-ter reaching there, Medical Examiner Crane gave permis sion for. burial. Mr Goldsmith leaves a widow and two small children. CHILDREN HUNT A DEER Fifty of Them and a Few of Their Elders Chase Animal. Smithineton. Mav 14. Piftv or mor pupils of the South uenter school and a dozen adults engaged in a deer hunt yesterday morning. A young deer which had apparently come' from the eastern part of the town, was seen oh the hill back of J. II. Martin's resi dence on Main street. It ran across the street and entered the small wood back of St Thomas's church. ' From the grove the animal jumped a four-rail fence and again crossed Main street, this time near the South Center school house. When the school children espied the deer thev gave chase and several got within a couple of rods of the now frightened animal before it broke and ran. eoinar up Meriden avenue ana taking to the fields in th eastern part the town.

Whereupon the ifriend remarked: "Well, old man, I taust eay that you appear to have lots of faith in doctors." "Certainly I have," replied the sick man; don't you think jthe doctors would be foolish to let a good customer like me die?"-3hicago Ajuromcie. u Meat Cause of Appendicitis. i The London Lancet reports a discus sion of the Academy of Medicine, Paris, in which M. Lucas Championnere said Ithat every day more confirmation was forthcoming of the idea that it was the abuse of a meat diet which was the principal cauce of appendicitis. In those countries where natives, eat very little meat, as is Brittany, appendicitis is very rare. In England and the United States, where a great deal of meat Is eaten, ap pendicitis is four times commoner than in France. ' Portland's Coming- Fair.
