WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, MAY21, 1904.
5. AS YOU LIKE IT. Some Stray Leaves From a Reporter's Note BooK. 'You would be surprised to know the number of people who carry their money In their mouths," said la clerk in one of the large dry goods houses -the otherday.. "And the persons who make a habit of using their mouths for purses are not always the poor and the ignorant and foreigners," he con tinued, "but many of them are well dressed and apparently respectable. Nothing is so disguslng as to have a woman put her hand in her rnouith and take out several pieces of coin and then drop them, wet and sticky and germ-bearing, into your hand. I fall to understand how persons can be so far lacking in breeding or good taste or respect for others as to take germ-bearing money from their mouths and offer it to you. One day a woman tried to do It on me. She received the goods and then she took the money from her mouth and start ed to place it ln my band. I made her drop it on the counter, then I got a piece of cloth, picked, up each coin separately, land wiped it carefully. All the time the woman stood there watch ing. It is unnecessary to say that the woman never offered me any more money from her mouth." ' - The proposition brought' forward nt the convention of Episcopalians at Los Angeles ' to drop the name Prot estant Episcopal church and start off by calling the institution the Ameri can' Catholic church has occasioned some comment in this part of the country, although very little has been ;said on the subject ln the papers. "It is coming," said a Waterbury Episco- noliiin "hn wo' 11 hgv tn wn it n fpw years longer, and perhaps by that time one name will do for all Catho lics. We have been moving Jn that direction for over a quarter of a cen tury, but the ancient body never changes a peg and if we are to have a reunion I suppose we shall te obliged to tramp back to the spot we started from. I don't see why we should kneel at different altars, vve are all aiming at the same end and I don't think there is enough difference In our plans at this .time to keep us apart much longer. But it requires a great deal of educational worjc to get the masses to move with the more in-, tellectual elements and besides other than spiritual interests are involved and if the , union comes, and I have been expecting it for many years, state and probably national legislation will be needed to heal up matters re garding public records." If all Epis copalians view the matter in , this light the day is not far distant when Roman Catholics and Episcopalians will be enjoying a love feast, and If the Catholics stick to their post, some thing which they are very likely to do, they will notVbave to make any con cessions to bring about this jollifica tion meeting. AH they will have to do is simply hold out the olive branch and inform their good neighbors that they are still doing business at the old stand and that the prodigals are wel come back tot the Master's household. , mm The Master Builders' association was verv Darticular to keeD the ODin- lons expressed at the meeting Tuesday night from the public, and while it succeeded to a certain extent enough leaked out to convey a pretty good Idea of what was said. More than one contractor admitted that there would be no need of unions were it not for the meanness of some employers ' of labor and expressed the hope that after the association had declared opeu shops nothing would be done by any member of the Master Builie.s' association which wou'd leave th-s or ganization open to a charge of wishing to seo a return to the conditions we 1 . t xi ' f , rri i uau uvicre me uu.ons. xue men who called attention to this phase of The subject knew what they were talking about. Until very recently the under strappers, not the emloyersv were the most tyrannical fellows in the world and often turned hands out without ,a moment's notice to satisfy some whim or petty spite that probably had no connections whatever with the work shop. It was ill treatment on the part of unprincipalled foremen and not email Txro flfAQ ilia f risvm'rtAs4 a rrr1-tfxls lot of Waterbury people to go into un ions. Some of the hands we're actual ly robbed by being pushed from pillar to post, while favored ones got the best of everything. If the bosses wife or thirty-first cousin came along he or she, as the case hapened to be, had to be provided with a job and a good one at that and as a result some body's head had to go into the basket. The aggrieved ones had no redress because the officials were too busy at the offices to bother with such things. With such tactics as these carried on to some extent in all the factories, was It any wonder that the working people fell easy victims to the agents of so cieties that assured them iif they got together they would be heard at the office and the understrapper would be muzzled. WERE SS NO SBSWiSIE SIS ' ' PUIj3 Aboolutoly Furo sires i cnnwiTEUz qfmiza TRIFLING WITH COURT Judge Cowell Intimates That Boston Parties Are Trying To. The sequel to the row which oc curred between Attorneys Cole .. and Bronson in the district court a few days ago took place this morning at short calendar in the same, court over the assignment of the cause of con tention, the case of John Moriarty against, the Glasgow Woolen Mills Go. When Judge Cowell asked if the case was ready for trial Mr Bronson .stood up and, opening a telegram, skid he had just received it from Boston, in iforming him that the ( deposition, the absence of which Is the obstacle in the way to hearing the case, cannot be signed by the deponent because of ill ness. Thig excuse seemed to Irritate Judge Cowell. He said, however, that Mr Bronson had done his duty by his client at all events. "But the man who made the deposi tion is not my client, your honor," said Mr Bronson. "He is only a wit ness." ; - Attorney Cole said he ws willing to have the case go over If Mr Bron son would pay $25 costs. The question of costs always tickles a lawyer and this time the word caused considerable mirth. t , Judge' Cowell "I think we had bet ter 'assign the case anyway. If they do business that way in Boston they must bear with the consequences." Mr Bronson objected to the case, be ing assigned. Attorney Cole "When Mr Bronson had his crazy fit on the. other day he said he had a letter from this person in Boston. There was something im plied In it Now they are playing fast and loose with this court. Why don't they come on with their deposi tion? Why is it not here? Now, my client is very much irritated over this delay. I must say now that I never took an unfair advantage in .court, whatever I may have done - out of court. This man's goods are In our store eating their heads off.' - , Attorney Bronson replied that the deposition was taken Tuesday or Wed nesday and he did not know till now why it was not sent on. He saw.no reason for adding additional costs, however. , ' Judge Cowell replied that it looked as if the Boston people were trying, to fool Mr Bronson. The idea of 'a man making a deposition being too sick to sign it did not go with him. It was too ridiculous for anything. Mr Bronson did not like the re marks of the court, that anyone was trying to fool him, and Judge Cowell replied that he meant the lawyers or whoever it was that took the deposi tion, and added that he should have to confess he did not know what to do with the case. "I may be suspicious," he said, 'but it seems to me they think this is a country court and are trifling with It." Attorney Thorns cut off the discus sion by a motion that the court pro ceed with the business of short Calen dar, and Attorney Cole jumped up with 'the question if the case was as signed for Monday. Mr Bronson said he did not know why his' brother Cole should take ad vantage of him like .that. The dis cussion was in la good way to be re newed when ' Attorney O'Neill cut it off again "and caused everybody to laugh by moving that the court ap point a committee to offer prayer for Attorneys Cole and Bronson. The case was finally set down for hearing next Friday. , At short calendar in the district court to-day Judge Cowell announced judgment for $450 damages for John D. Botelle against the borough of Bristol and for the latter to recover its costs. , Botelle sprained bis right ankle by falling lno a hole in Bristol's main street one evening last winter. The demurrer to the counter claim ln the suit of the Expanded Metal Co against Lewis A. Piatt w1as overruled. The court decided that John B. Mai lings was not a party to the suit, but was merely agent for the defendant. The case of Catherine Harty against the city was set down for Monday and the city against Rafter for a week from Monday; Gould vs the city Tues day, and the ease of the Watertownj Savings bank against B. H. Mattoon will be assigned next Saturday. Judgment for foreclosure was grant ed the Co-operative Savings society against George G. Baker for 51,516.12. The property involved is situated in Oakville and in granting judgment the court remarked that anyone who owned property In that place deserved to lose it . , Most of the -business on short Cal endar was put over to next week. , An "After Easter Bonnet" Man. CHICAGO, May 21. D. F. Ran dolph, who is wanted In Indian Terri tory on a charge of embezelement, was ordered sent before the federal court of the territory by United States Com missioner Foote.

An unusual sight in Hartford G. A. R. day was that of a confederate flag flyingfrom a window on Garden street The Incident was so rare that very few who saw the flag recognlzeu It as the stars and bars of the confed eracy. Those who did are certain that the flag wa8 not unfurled in a spirit of defiance to the veterans who Thursday celebrated the reunion of the survivors of the conflict of two score years ago, but as a spontaneous tribute to the memory of the,, boys who wore the gray, that they were remembered even In the hour when their conquerors were celebrating the, victory of battles fought and won. .
