WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 1904.
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
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
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?

San Francisco, 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..

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

the Japanese for laborers to assist the
army has attracted many of the

lorn appearing craft, the Chili of Buf

bridge stood a captain, M. M. Drake,
the owner, who has not sailed a vessel
for thirty years. At the wheel and in
the old cabin were officers many of

ASSESSOR TOOK HIM UP,
Wanted to Buy Root's Property at the
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
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

why Window and Door Screens

ls because they keep out the flies
