It Needs No Bush 4q Sell Good Wine
. In earlier days it was customary to
put out, at taverns, a bush, as a sign
that wine was sold there. In those
days the country was but thinly settled
and there was few newspapers to ad
vertise in, so the people depended on
each other to hear the news and to pass
on the merits of their purchases. Now
adays the people read the newspapers
and look there, mot only to find the
passing events, but also to find articles
they are in need of, advertised. Brown's
Quickflre Charcoal needs no praise to
those who have used it, but our sign,
the daily papers, that we may get new
customers to extol its good qualities.

amazed this morning at seeing the
sprinkling cart sprinkling the street.
People were in their doorways looking
after the cart, wondering what ha
happened that brought the cart to this
section. This is the first trip it has
made here this summer, although it
was badly needed a long time ago. The
street is swept every morning and the
dust that arises is very dense. The
storekeepers are obliged to keep their
doors closed alt day in order to prevent
the dust from coming in and destroy
ing their stock, and they are in hopes
that the cart will make a trip here
every day before the street is swept.
Mrs Wolff, who resides at 90
Cnarles street, met with a very painful
accident late yesterday afternoon She
went to the store to secure a few gro
ceries and was returning with both
arms full. In one hand she carried a
bottle of milk. She rehed a point
near her nome when she tripped on
something and fell. The bottle of milk
fell on the tar walk first, smashing into
pieces. When Mrs Wolff fell her hand
went heavily on the broken glass and
an ugly gash was inflicted. Dr Parrell
was calleoy and he found that she nad
severed a blood vessel. It was neces
sary to perform an operation on the
hand, which was performed this after
noon. Every afternoon, generally between
4 and 5 o'clock, a very reckless driver
drives a large gray horse along River
side street across Bank and stops at
the watering trough to water his ho-se.
He rides the horse bareback, and once
he is seated on the horse's back he
beats the animal unmercifully with a
large strap, on the end of which is at
tached a large brag's buckle. The
horse gallops and it is a wonder the
driver is not thrown off. He pays lit
tle attention to the safety of people
who are crossing the street at uie cor
ner of Bank and Riverside streets, and
several persons have had narrow es
capes from being run doyn. The man
ner in which he drives and beats the
horse has been the subject oi much
attention and talk of late in this sec
tion. A number of persons who have
witnessed the way he treats the fiorse
have told him to let up on it, but their
advice is of no avail, and it seems to
urge him to become more daring.

SCHOOL INSPECTOR BUSY
SUMMER RESORT HOTELS.
State Board of Health Finds LacK of
Fire Escapes.
New Haven, July 22 The quarter
ly meeting of the state board of
health, which embodied the annual
election of officers, was held here last
night.. Professor W. H. -Brewer of
New Haven was re-elected president;
the auditing committee is Henry G.
Newton and T. H. MacKenzie, and Dr
Lindsley is again secretary. Dr Dag
gett of this pity read a paper on the
prevention, cure, etc, of typhoid and
this was discussed at length. The
paper was read before the state medi
cal society and referred by it to the
board. Dr Daggert suggested among
other things inspection of country
outhouses and a committee was ap
pointed to consider the matter.
The report from the state Inspector
of summer resorts shows a much bet
ter state of affairs in the sanitary con.
dition of summer resort hotels than
at the time of his appointment a few
years ago. The improvement is es
pecially noticeable in the past year
and a half. A feature that interested
the board is that the inspector finds
that only about 5 per cent of the
summer hotels comply with the law
regarding the fire escapes. In some
instances buildings having 100 rooms
and only one staircase are not pro
vided with fire escapes. The blame Is
laid on the local officials for not en
forcing the laAv.
ANN IS THIRTY-FIVE.
Attorney Webb Has Witness Who
Testifies Positavely.
New Haven, July 22. City Attorney
Webb vras yesterday morning guilty of
an awful attempt to revive the "How
Old is Ann" gag which for months was
used to keep the inmates of the insane
asylums busy. One Margaret Ourtin
was before the court for drunkenness.
She begged to be allowed to go and
said she had been visiting a friend.
"Who is this friend?" inquired Mr
Webb.
"Her name is Ann," said Margaret,
"and I don't exactly know what her
last name is." g
"How old Is your friend?" Mr Webb
managed to ask without putting "Ann"
onto the last of the question.
"I. should think she was about 35,"
replied -aargaret. entirely unsuspicious
of the point Mr Webb was after. Mar
garet was sent to Jail for ten days, but
not because she was implicated in as
sisting to answer the now famous
conundrum.

Janitors Doing the WorK Formerly
Done by Pointers.
School Inspector Tyrrell is having a
lot of trouble with his help, but he
does not seem to mind it On the con
trary it agrees with him, and if the
trouble keeps pourinK in on him he
soon Avill be so plethoric that he will
not have room on his bicycle and will
want an automobile. One of the la-test
shots fired at the inspector was
that he "docked" the carpenters for
Independence day, but Clerk Fitzger
ald declares this to be untrue and says
that the inspector has nothing to do
with making up the payroll. The board
fixes the price and the clerk does the
rest. That settles that, but on its
heels come niutterings of discontent
from the janitors, who claim that for
the first time in the history of the
schools they are obliged to convert
themselves into painters and as a re
sult the union men will not recognize
them. They claim that the inspector
insisted upon having them take hold
of the brush and paint the pipes and
boilers during vacation, work which
until the present time was attended
to by regular painters. The janitors
are very angry over this additional la
bor, but the inspector thinkg It a pro
per caper and perhaps it is, too. Any
way, between keeping tabs on the jan
itors and lending a hand in further
ance of the anti-Duraut campaign in
the fourth ward, the -inspector is not
letting the grasB grow under his ftt
and when the janitors kick about not
having a vacation the inspector 'can
hold up his hands and proclaim truth
fully that he isn't having any himself.
LOCATION DOES NOT
MEET POPULAR FAVOR
The article in yesterday's Democrat
regarding the location of the public
comfort station touched the right spot
and were it not for a disinclination to
run afoul of the mayor and his board
of public works, every person em
ployed in the City hall would be out
against putting it under the town
clerk's office, and the board of health
would long since have offered a word
or two on the question. Located under
the City hall, the comfort station will
be all right for a number of the old
timers, but it will not amount to any
thing so far as being an accommodation
to the public generally. It is a pity to
spend $3,500 for something which prom
ises to render such poor service, or,
to state the fact better, it Is a shame
to locate it where it will be out of the
people's reach when it could just as
well be placed where it would accom
modate all who might have occasion to
use it at less cost than in the City hall,
where it will come in handy for only
those who know the haunts of the town
and could easily manage to get along
without it.
BOARD OF SAFETY.
PORTLAND MINE CLOSED.
Military Anthoritipn Have A rrcsied
Forty Miner. V'l
DENVER, July 22. The Portland
mine is closed again in consequence of
the action of the military authorities.
The mine was giving employment to
about 500 men. Squads of soldiers
have arrested forty of these, includ
ing the entire mechanical force at the
three working shafts. This comprised
engineers, firemen, master mechanics
and skilled men in other departments.
The men thus summarily removed from
their labors are accused of no crime,
the only accusation being that they Re
fused to sacrifice their membership in
the Western Federation of Millers and
take out Mine Owners' association
working cards. 1
Six of the forty men arrestsd were
declared to be "all right" by the' mili
tary board and were released. Twelve
others were released on their own recog
nizance. Each of the remaining twenty-two
when questioned admitted tha
he had Intended to quit Work in the
Portland mine, but denied knowledge
of the others' plans. It is alleged that
the union men in the mechanical de
partment were to walk out in a body.
There are said to be about 100 union
miners still at work in the Portland
mine fwho have not taken out Mine
Owners' association cards, and they
will now be required to take out such
cards or leave the district.
BRYAN'S PLANS.
Nebraakan Favor Radical Chansje
In Democratic Policy.
LINCOLN, Neb., July 22. W. J. Bry-.
an's plan for the reformation of the
Democracy has been given publieity.
In it Mr. Bryan favors radical changes,
but advocates the election of Judge
Parker for president as a good begin
ning. He declares for state owner
ship of railroads, -government control
of telegraphs and abolishment of pri
vate monopoly and favors the income
tax and election of federal judges by
the people. Mr. Bryan says in part:
"Mj' selection as standard bearer of
the Democratic party in 1896 and again
in 1900 made me the nominal leader of
that party, and as such I did not feel
at liberty to engraft new doctrines up
on the party creed. I contented my
self with the defense of those princi
ples and policies which were embodied
in the platform.
"Now that the leadership devolves
upon another and I bear only the re
sponsibility that each citizen must bear
namely, the responsibility for my
own opinions, my utterances and my
conduct I am free to undertake a
work which until now I have avoid
ed.' i. .
Fireman Discharged After Executive
Session by Commissioners.
George F. Reid, a hoseman and ex
tra driver of Engine Co No 2, Scovill
street, was discharged from the de
partment last night by the board of
public safety for having been intoxi
cated while on duty On July 15. This
decision was reached in the face of
the fact that his superior officer, Cap
tain Heitman, had testified that Reid
had suffered all last week from
cramps, that he was a fine fireman,
was not addicted to drink, and last
week's offense was his first. Chief
Snagg also testified that he had never
seen Reid intoxicated before nor in a
condition unfit for duty. He Was not
inclined to be disrespectful or dis
obedient. Thi8 testimony apparently
had little effect upon the commission
ers. Commissioner Bench presided and
all the members were present. After
the charges Were read by Clerk
Reeves, Reid wa8 put to plea. He
pleaded guilty, stating that he had
been sick with cramps all the week
and on the Friday morning in question
hd taken two drinks of whiskey t&
better his condition. He was accus
tomed to take a drink once in a while,
but often he woqld not touch any
drink for two monthR or more. He
had never been warned by his super
ior officer in regard to drinking. Cap
tain Heitman testified that he knew
personally that Reid had been 111 all
the Week with cramps and had seen
him take Jamaica ginger for them. He
was on duty all the week, but acted
like a sick man. It Was his first of
fense and he was not addicted to
drink. He made a good fireman.
Chief Snagg, as stated before, also said
that he had never Keen Reid intoxicat
ed or unfit for duty before, although he
was sure that he drank more or less.
After tthe hearing of the accused and
the witnesses, the board went into ex
ecutive session and after an hour's de
liberation decided that Reid, who was
a good fireman and had never been
seen intoxicated or unfit for duty by
his superior officers before, was dis
charged. At the meting of the board of pub
lie safety last night a communication
was received from Cnauncey M Hall
who claims that OflScer Simon McCar
thy unwarrantedly placed him under
arrest, giving the names of his wit
nesses in the case. The communica
tion was sent at the request of the
board and contained the following
names: R. R. Porter, Exchange ho
tel; F. B. Manville, 204 North Willow
street; E. C. Kirchas. G8 Easton ave
nue, and Max Aldrieh, Exchange ho
tel. It was decided tff have a hearing
on the charges to-night at 8 o'clock.
Chief Egan was instructed to have
rule 76 strictly enforced. This rule
requires that supernumerary police
men, when on duty, shall be attired in
the full regulation uniform, with hel
mets and white gloves. Some super
numeraries have been wearing ail
kinds of uniforms.
The application of William H. Nich
ols of 748 East Main street for ap
pointment as permanent flremafi was
received and placed on file.
IfVAL MUSICIAN.
Tromhene Attracted Some Un favor
able Attention Last Night.
Another immense crowd attended
the band concert given on the green
last night by the American band.
The crowd was not so large as last

ment was strongly denouKced by
those present.
