WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 1904.
0 STUDENT DROWNED. Leaves . Vacancy Which; Waterbury Boy is Eligible For. The death yesterday by drowning of Samuel H Baldwin of New Haven creates a vacancy in the naval acad emy which will have to be filed by the selection of an alternate. Baldwin, vbo was 18 years of age, was to have entered the academy to-day, but un fortunately was drowned yesterday at Tolchester Beach within eight of a number of companions. Accompaiw. by a fried he jumped from a rowboat to swim some distance and was taken with cramps and sank. The body was recovered about an hour after the acci dent There appears to be some question as to the name of his successor, the place belonging, it would seem, to Pat. rick J. Healy, son of John Healy of Silver street, this city, one of the bright pupils at the High school, class of '05. When the examinations were held Samuel Baldwin won the cadet ship with Edward Willis Punney of Milford as first alternate and Patrick J. Healy of Waterbury second alter nate. Punney has since secured an appointment at the United States mili tary academy, so that the death of Baldwin leaves Healy first in line, al though it is said that the plum is likely to go to George W. Hewlett of New Haven. A Democrat reporter talked with Mr Healey at the High school this morn ing, but he did not care to say any thing about the matter. From another source it was learned that theWater bury boy passed very creditable ex aminations at New Haven and' Middle town, but that his father is not anx ious to have him leave home and that on this account it was a question Whether he would try " to " get the ap pointment. There appears to be noth ing standing in the way of Healy re ceiving the cadetship, except as the New ' Haven papers state that Inas much as he failed to take the examina tion at Annapolis he Is therefore dis qualified, but those who know some thing about such things claim that this Is not so and maintain that the apointment rightfully belongs in Wa terbury. PROPERTY OWNERS iriCIL Big Poles Going Down on Baldwin .street me vause. Some of the property owners along the line of the Baldwin street trolley feel aggrieved at the way the side walks have been battered up to make room for the monster poles. There is no help for this. The company got per mission to set up wooden pjoles. and everybody might just as , well take things as they find them. People should bear in mind, too, that the side , walks belong to the city and not to i the property owners. It Is hard to make the public believe this, but there is absolutely no doubt about It. The city owns that portion of the streets reserved for, sidewalks in the same sense that it owns the streets, and for this reason many' claim that the city should not only keep them in repair, but construct hem. In some instances oiie1 would say that the1 poles in ques tion should have been set closer to the curbing, but perhaps a rock or other obstruction was responsible for this. In any case it Is something property owners have nothing to do with. If a man reads his deed he will see that If it calls for a lot a hundred feet deep it Is that depth without the sidewalk, ; so that when one purchases " property abutting upon an accepted street he does not buy the sidewalk. The same rule holds with reference to new streets. If a street Is laid out forty feet wide that' Includes the part in tended for walks and the city acquires possession of the whole of it It was a mistake not to have used the iron poles, but it Is too late to talk about that now. Very few people took any stock in this matter when the public hearing was called. They h.ave gain ed a lot of valuable Information since, but it is of no use to them and so long as they cannot apply it to' any good account In this case, it. would be well to forget it. It ' is Tsaid -"that the pavement does not extend two' feet outside the rails, either, as both the statute and the conditions prove, but this Is a small affair. In the near fu ture the street will be paved with vitrified brick and then the company will have to toe the mark. The resi dents of that district have a worse grievance than any of the ones men tioned, but nobody appears to notice It. Wonder somebody has not made, a $ protest against the hauling ; of the macadam from Baldwin street onto the Watertown road. Was it too good for the streets leading onto Baldwin street or are they all right without it? Onlr tk Fatal Tree Mark. JERSET CITY, N. J., June , 9.

Four Amer ican mining engineers who have been working on the Lelght Hunt conces sions In Korea,' , have returned on the steamer Coptic. They are M. Gala-; gher, F. W. Deal, W. G. Dennis and B.. L. Stone. Before they left Korea many soldiers, both Cossack and Japanese, had passed through the concession. The Japanese, however, were in the minority and latterly the troops of the czar were 'not visible. Work is going on on the concession, but labor is grow ing scarce, as the $3 a day offered by the Japanese for laborers to assist the army has attracted many of the Koreans formerly ' employed t in the mines.

Sunday, which was followed by' rioting and the burning of the grand stand after the authorities had pre vented the bullfight. Bass declares he shot in self defense. A Compromise at Louisville.

' ASSESSOR TOOK HIM UP, Wanted to Buy Root's Property at the List" Price. Samuel Root had a brief but sharp passage at arms with the assessors tb; day. Mr Root claimed that- if taxes kept going up he would have to dispose of his property and put his money into something else. Assessor Jenks want ed to buy at the price it is down in. the grand list, but Mr Root gave the propo sition a deaf ear and started in to de nounce the consolidation. "I don't know what this thing means," he said. "When consolidation .ws talked of one of the reasons advanced in favor of it was that it would reduce the rate of taxation. Now we have it and taxes are a third higher than before. I wonder what those who secured the passage of that act have to say for themselves when they see how it has operated to the disadvantage of every body." , , Mr Jenks admitted the corn so far as the increase in the 6ize of the rate bills go, but contended that , this was noth lug the assessors were responsible tor., "But,- after all," continued the : as sessor, "it" does not seem that people consider the taxes very high.y Large numbers 'of rate payers fail to come and list their ratable property, and by so doing they show that they are will ing to pay more.. At the present time less than one-sixth of the property own ers of the town have called upon us, and from now on, unless by great crowding all cannqt comply witu the law. , When you see hundreds of work ing people and others as well remain away from this office and let the per centages be added to their bills, it does not look as if they felt the burden too heavily. A working man who has not enough Interest in his financial affairs to drop in here some time during the month of June and" tell us how nuch taxable property he owns, and in this way save a week's wages, has not much , ground to stand upon whence talks about a high rate of taxation." t Mr. Root didn't wait to hear the as sessors through, but hurried off at top speed as if he were going to put every thing he owns into the hands of a real estate man, Assessor McEvoy took up the sub ject where Mr Jenks left off and stated that this was the only town he knew of where the assessors try to get peo ple to save the percentages. , In Hart ford and other cities the assessors putr lish the notice required ' by law, and that Is the last rate payers hear about it. He had given this matter a good deal of consideration and was still un able to explain why so many are will ing to pay more taxes than they ought to. The board is not doing a big busi ness and it is not likely there will be a rush until the last few days of the present month and the day after the time for. making out lists expires. In the first week of July the janitor in varfably lias . to do a whole lot-of ,. ex plaining to tardy callers that no proper ty can ,be listed after the last day of June.-. .'; - - ; 1 AT FRIENDLY LEAGUE.
