WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1004.
THEY GRIN AND BEAR IT Maa Th6 Can Brlag About Equitable A3us?5ant of Tftxts. , The inequality of the rate of taxa tion in Waterbury is apparent to ev. erybody, but because It is the work of gooH republicans those who are In a position to bring aoout such changes as would make it equitable prefer to suffer rather than run counter with the powers that be. ; It Is like the tar iff. Some of the best citizens in the community admit that the tariff as maintained by th republican party .i works a great hardship to the masses, still it Is a party measure and they dare not pronounce against it. Not long ago Commissioner Goss of the' board of public works said that the rate of taxation In the outside dis trict with reference to the water ques tion was due to an oversight when the act of consolidation was passed and that he supposed it would be rectified. It is not likely that there was any mis take about it, else the thing would have been straightened out long ago, and the fact that it has gone on with out a protest shows how. tamely people submit to imposition and how folks who profit by such tactics stand ready to defend them. A man who would not cheat his neighbor out of Ave cents in lifetime will rush to the defense of law that gives him an advantage over others, and people who would go Into the courts over a few dollars of ten turn a deaf ear to a system of tax- ation which compels them not only to pay. for what they get themselves, but also come down handsomely' for their neighbors, and so it goes. There is a lot ft talk about new laws for Water tury, but not a whimper concerning matters that pertaluto the well being of the whole people, the end in view, it would appear, being to secure per manent positions for a few regardless of how such a course affects .those who are to pay them. Why should one part of the town. be taxed for water and teachers' salaries for another dis trict, and what justice is there in charging, citizens nine per cent on mon ey when the city can borrow for three and a half per cent? If properly arranged the rate of taxation in Wa terbury would not be high compared wl(h what they pay in other Connecti cut towns, but the system is so one sided and manifestly unfair that more than halt the rate payers are. constant ly finding fault and with, good reason, J and then nobody except those who don't want to pay their share of v the public expense will have - anything tb say about municipal burdens. A law which confers special favors upon one v portion of a community Is bound to make trouble and Waterbury' Is noted for legislation ot this sort. Even Judge Qowell and a few other nabobs of the republican party were not able to defend themselves from a charge to this effect aimed at them in Hartford not long Since by Attorney Ely of New Haven, a republican, but yet when his toes were trodden upon he let the cat out of the bag and explained some of the vicious legislation enacted for Wa terbury at Hartford at the instigation of some clever fellows from the Brass City. " It was a hard shot and the only defense off ered was a humorous Joke from Judge Cowell to the effect that if the New Haven fellows didn't, keep quiet Waterbury would dump its sew age onto their oyster beds The, alder men should take hold of these ques tion instead of allowing a small set1 of men who have axes of their own to grind, to grind out new schemes for their own special benefit and then rep resent to the legislature' that public necessity and . convenience , demand them. s '" 't : -J ' ; FELL FROM BARS. Caratll Stsdoat Lost the Power of i Ithacav, N. Y., Nov 22. Frederick E.V Schmidt, a sophomore-. In Cornell uni versity, has suffered a most peculiar and possibly fatal accident.

After being removed to the Infirm ary, where he now lies. Schmidt partly recovered his speaking faculty, but i till totally paralyzed. . Physicians say that if he survives the accident it is doubtful that he will ever recover con trol of his nervous system. A GOOD CHRISTMAS GIFT., The , New York , World offers its rhrice-a-Week edition one year, Har per's Bazaar one yea and the Cosmo politan Magazine one- year, all for 1.60. This is an unusual offer and af fords opportunity for making a sub stantial Christmas gift at slight cost. Address the World, P. O. ; Box 1103, New 'York, N.,Y. . . 1 It is a bad plan for a man to ask a gin to be his wife on a very slight ac quaintance and a still worse plan for her to accept him under these circum stances. If they keep their beads It Is surely not a very hard thing for them to conclude to wait until they know one another a trifle better before they decide that they are the two persons out of the whole world who are best fitted to live each with the other. When they have made ttils perfectly clear to their own minds, and not until then, should they become engaged and an nounce the fact to the world at large. And when they are engaged 'they Should understand the responsibilities of their position and not seek to evade them. Success. s Bra-re, wt Safe.' "Father, are generals brave men asked Johnny of his parent. "Yes, my son, as a rule, I think they are,"! was the apswer.

Casey of Washington ave nue and Thomas McEvoy of Railroad Hill street and others have been cited to appear before the superior courri next Friday morning to show cause why certain land owned by them should not be condemned in the inter ests of, public benefits and the Consoli dated Kailroad Co. For some time agents of the railroad company have been trying to purchase land owned by the above named in order to carry out certain improvements contemplated for the benefit of the city, but the own ers were obdurate, it seems, and nego tiations were concluded a. week ago, Then the company decided to take the matter into the courts. The fact that It Is already there shows the company Is determined to make the long looked for Improvements in railroad facilities to and from Waterbury. The hearing will take place at short calendar.

After an absence of over ten months through illness Prof Bailey has once more revived, with the aid of his many friends and pupils, the former enthusi asm in his select dancing school. Aside from his popularity, and well known teaching abilities, his pretty music hall In the Citizens' bank bloke adds no lit tle to the attraction of his many pa trons. One of the secrets of success to his many graceful pupils is that they begin with a training foundation and gradually build up to proficiency. 'Of tentimes, however, the opinion prevails in the novice mind to join a party class -where most of them dance- well. This is quite the contrary to what the beginner should do, as those pf experi ence will admit. ; Prof Bailey is about now organizing one of his graded class es for strictly beginners.
