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.

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." ,

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." Anyone who cared
to Invest $1 for a key to the place
could join and " it was the amazement
of many that such a place should be
allowed to exist without interference
from the law. -

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
, 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.

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. '
