Ml VOL XXI, NO. 270 Y2 Pageo, WATKRBURY. CONff., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1908. 12 Pocen, PRICE TWO CENTO. MORSE WINS POINT CU0Z0NS POOR DE DIED OF THIRST MOURNING EMBLEMS TAKEN DOWN VUltlag Clergy and Olbcri Woo Attended Uooslgnor Slocoia'i FBseral Gone Home More TrittmoBlili of Esteem. ' The purple and black draperiei which were put on the rectory and church of the Immaculate Conception soon after the death of Father 8 lo cum last Thursday, were taken down thla morning and things about the place are getting back to normal con. dltlons, although everybody says that they cannot realize that the pastor la gone and will be with them no more. Leo Courtemanche of Boston, deco rator for the Curran Dry Goods Co; had charge of . the' work and did it in a manner which drew forth en comiums on all sides, the priests and others pronouncing it a great artistic triumph in that line. Over 6,000 yards of material was used and every, thing was in its own place. l Notwithstanding all that has been ald and written about Father Slocum the subject is still new. and for the time being has put politics in the background. ' Almost everybody you meet Intro duces something 'in reference to the character of the dead prelate, who ap pears to have had the rare good for tune of being appreciated and loved in his own day and time. Really, every soul in town acts as if he felt like saying in the language of John Boyle O'Reilly, the gifted singer: "When friends look back from the years to be, ' ,. God grant they may say such things of me." ' ' " But every man is not blessed with the charming personality which did so much to endear Monslgnor Slocum to his fellow men, and the most many of us can do is take a lesson from his life and aim to be as much like him as we' possibly can be. It is admitted that he was an exception and that communities rarely see such men, but even at that if he had been even more Godlike, his fellow townsmen of all creeds and colors and the church to whose service he gave the best there was in him, could not possibly have bestowed greater honor upon h!m than- was shown yesterday, so that even from a worldly point of view his life should be an inspiration and guiding Star' for all men.' Probably the best thing We can say of him now that his labor here Is done; and he will walk with us no more, is that he was as pleasing in' the sight of the Divine Master as he. was in the eye of those who knew him in this life. ' Much credit is due to Father O'Brien and the other priests of the parish for the admirable' way in which1 every detail of the funeral was carried out. . ' ' Right Rev BiBhop Beavan, chancel lor John G. Murray,- Rev Thomas S. Duggan of Hartford and others had dinner at the rectory of the Immacu late Conception parish after which the bishop and party left for Hart ford in Mr O'Neill's touring car, the same that brought them here, follow. ed by Attorney Holden in- his private car. :. Some of the visiting priests had dinner with friends and the rest were accommodated at The Elton. IN MEMORIAM The noisy voice of the city. Was hushed to a monotone, As they followed the bier in sorrow, ' - While bis soul passed on alone. And his robe of purple velvet, His golden chalice of love, - Are left to the hearts who mourn " him, - ; He will not need them above. The deeds of his life are the symbols He takes to the throne on nign, , They were the. safeguards about him , And he did not fear to die. . He's read his last mass from the altar, . ' ' His last "Hall Marys" are said, His hands have been Raised the last time .-'" In blessing above your head, "i And the hearts , of all his people - Will cherish some tender tone, Of love and comfort, he gave them ; When in grief they came alone. To ask Ms comfort and blessing And they never came in vain, So keep the tender memory .He cannot counsel again. - But his blessing, surely he sends you With his love it will descend, ' An honored priest and father, to you . To all, a man and a friend. And many who shared not in his faith, - ' ' ' Held his friendship, warm and true, So the city is bowed la sorrow, And all mourn, Father, for you. Mrs Abby S. Cooley. ) - Xotre Dame Alumnae Resolutions. The Alumnae association of Notre Dame wishes to make a public ex pression of the grief of its mercbe; at the death of the Right Rev Mour algnor Slocum.

When she sand Lord Curzon returned to England they could not open their magnificent London house Carlton House Terrace, but were forced to. take rooms in a hotel and live Inexpensively while waiting for funds to arrive from America. .

Plans are be ing made by the Retail Liquor Deal ers' association of Connecticut to manufacture their own' beer, and an opinion is now held by the associa tion to buy a brewery In Hartford, where the beverage will be mae'e for dealers throughout the state. A meet ing will be held In New Haven In the Knights of Columbus building Octo ber 29, when local dealers and dele gates from all over the state will meet to decide definitely upon the question.

The price of beer here is $12' a barrel. Throughout the country it ranges from $9 to $12. The price a year ago, befoie the brewers made the increase, was $11 a barrel.

The people In the vicinity of West Side hill , were thoroughly scared about si 1 o'clock this morning when they learned that a crazy man was running through the streets brand ishing a horsewhip in his hand and lashing everybody who came in his Way. They later breathed a sigh of relief when they heard that the man was arrested before he had done any serious accident. Patrolman Maurice Healey brought him to the station. The man gave his name as Charles Brown but the police do not think It right. He has been employed the past two months by James Tyler of Mlddlebury but the past few days he was acting 'queerly, so this morning Mr Tyler discharged him.
