There must be a Democratic party in
every country, and I want our party to
be Democratic, and I have no doubt
that the country will see the necessity

I hare no doubt that conditions will so

Timothv Kellev of Honewell Mav Die
As Eesult of Injuries.
Hartford, Nov 18. While the
Glastonbury trolley car due to arrive
at City hall at 9 o'clock last evening
was crossing the causeway at Hock
anum, Motorman House saw a man
lying just ahead near the tracks and
after the car was stopped and the
body picked up, it was found to be
that of a man with bloody face and
head, and with just consciousness
enough to say that he had been
struck by an automobile. The man,
who was later found to be Timothy
Kelley of Hopewell, which is in the
south part of the town of Glaston
bury, was put aboard the car by Con
ductor Morgan and word was sent
ahead to the Hartford police station
and, when the car reached - Market
street the ambulance was ready to
convey the Injured man to St Fran
cis's hospital.
Kelley was so badly stunned that
he was unable to speak more than a
few wandering words when he reach
ed the hospital but he gave his name
and then passed into delirium. The
physicians, however, believed that
no bones were broken, but it was
rather early last evening to tell
whether there . were Internal in
juries or not.
None'the Worse for Slieht Accident
The auto truck of the fire depart
ment 1b on duty again. Last evening;
about 6 o'clock with the injury done
the preceding night all repaired, the
auto whizzed from Towle's garage
over to the engine house. The new
wheel is being painted to-day and
the truck is apparently none the
worse for the accident.' The supply
wagon was "vamoosed" after doing
service for one day. The wagon was
sent back to the Scovlll street house
whence It came; the harness went
back to the Brooklyn bouse where it
was gotten yesterday morning; one
of the horses was taken to the Bald
win street house from which it had
been borrowed and the other was
sent home its residence at the Burton
street house. The North Willow
street house felt a trifle slighted be
cause it had given nothing for the
emergency outfit.
Three Men Killed .
Toronto, Ont., Nov 18. A special

dian Pacific freight train which came

ocratic ticket.
Occasional Case.
Manila, Nov 18. While occasion
al cafes of cholera are reported to
the authorities the epidemic Is now
unquestionably at an end.
Berlin, Nov .18. The results of
the representations made to Emper
or William yesterday by Chancellor
von'Buelow and the consequent im
perial pledge to . keep both' the
speeches and the acts of his majesty
within close constitutional bounds
are measured In colder mood by the
people to-day. The emperor is still
liuch Isolated from the sympathies
of both the upper and lower levels
of society. The talk among the
friends of the chancellor and the
ministers to-day is that they mu.t
wait and Bee how the emperor acts
when the next , keenly interesting
question comes up. Doubt exists as
to whether at the age of 50 the em
peror's Impulsive and candid disposi
tion can be so deeply modified by
the events of the past fortnight that
he will depart from a practice he has
followed during the twenty years o
his reign. Prince von Buelow and
his party will pursue an opportunist
policy, affirming resolutely that the
imperial conduct will faithfully fol
low the Imperial word.
Paris, Nov 18. The opinion of the
French press Is divided regarding the
international effect of Emperor Wil
liam's consent to avoi din the future
personal intervention in the foreign
affairs of the empire. While a ma
jority of the papers consider his ma
jesty's assurances beneficial to the
country and a victory for the Ger
man people as'against personal rule,
several' of them and notably the Fi
garo expressed confidence in the sin
cerity of his majesty's pacific inten
tions and they recall occasions upon
which he interfered in the interests
of peace. They believe it unfortu
nate that this check npon the
Chauvenism of German bureaucracy
has been removed.
Held by Police for Damage in. thy
City in Tearing Down Wires. -
Rockville. Nov 18. The balloon
"Pittsfield in the heart of the Berk
shires" which made au ascension at
Pittsfield at 2:55 yesterday afternoon.
JajjifitLJifice Just an b,our later. The
descent was very rapid and m or
der to get clear of the buildings in
the city, the pilot, William , Van
Sleet, threw out what ballast he had.
Passing over the Saxony mill, the
pilot let down the anchor in the vi
cinity of Grand street. The anchor
caught in a tree and was broken.
The balloon dragged along a quarter
of a mile, when It became entangled
in a tree in the yard at Christian
Newmarker's. The pilot and his
companions leaped from the basket
after their wild flight.
The balloon was held by Police
Captain Kane for damages to city
property in tearing down fire alarm
wires. The wires were ripped from
the poles for a quarter of a mile.
The pilot stated that they reached
a height of 10,000 feet. Van Sleet
returned to Pittsfield last night. He
said the flight was the most thrilling
he had ever made. The height reach
ed was believed to be the highest
achieved by a balloon, at least in this
country. Mr Van Sleet said that at
this altitude- the air was warm and
kept the bag up, bet that when he
brought the balloon to a lower level
into a current of cold air, the drop
was very rapid.
Sav Politics Will Be Eliminated From
District Schools.
The majority if not all of the
teachers in the suburban school dis
tricts favor the vote of the board of
education passed last Monday even
ing to have the city charter amend
ed so that the district shall be un
der the full jurisdiction of the board.
It seems to be their general opinion
that oce the schools are consolidat
ed under the board of education poli
tics will be eliminated from them,
for their will be no more district
committeemen to deal with. A
change of committeeman meant gen
erally a change in the teaching staff
of his district. Efficiency never en
tered into the matter at all, for ef
ficient or not if a teacher was not
popular in the district she'was dis
missed without explanation. Fur
thermore, the change would give the
outside teachers better pay, assure
them in their positions as long as
their conduct merited and clear the
atmosphere of small politics.
It has been said that it would be
very difficult for the board of edu
cation to get graduates of the Nor
mal schools to teach in the suburban
districts. The board of education
seems to be aware of this and will
handle the matter in the proper way
when the legislation proposed Is en
acted. Until then the committee!
having the matter in charge prefers
to say nofhing about It.

Fiftieth Anniversary of Ordination of
Pine Pius X.
An event of joyous celebration, the
fiftieth anniversary of ordination of
the sovereign pontiff, Pius X, was
celebrated on Monday at the academy
of Notre Dame.
The unbidden guest, anticipating
severe simplicity and rigid restraint,
within convent walls was permitted
a peep at the girlish festivities and
his hitherto iron clad theories and
world worn traditions were complete
ly routed as they beat a hasty re
treat. Though the broad Atlantic rolled
between the Roman Vatican and the
little house on the hill," the mighty
expanse of old ocean could not sepa
rate the loyal joy of the devout dig
nitaries at St Peter's from that of
the youthful hearts steadfast In the
old faith.
As the glorious pageant of pontiff
and prelate passed through Rome i
vast cathedral the humble nuns and
their pupils knelt for the celebration
of mass . In the solemn hush of their
own little chapel, recalling to rec
ollectioh and prayer the pious priest
of fifty years ago" who offered his
first oblation of bread and wine. At
the conclusion of the religious cere
monies the visitor was granted a per
sonally conducted tour of inspection.
The many class rooms were thronged
with fair, occupants, from the tiny
tots listening open eyed and 6pen
mouthed to the ravishing tales of
fairy lore to the more serious seniors
who had laid .aside their books and
their wonted di?.ity that they might
enjoy themselves as fancy dictated.
The tedium of scholastic duty was
forgotten and in the afternoon the
reverend superior provided a boun
tiful repast for the merrymakers as
well as permission to repair to as
sembly hall for a grand ball for la
dies only. ,
It was a red letter day In convent
life and the joy note was not a whit
discordant in the "even tenor of its
way." E. H. B.

road commissioner. It is stated
that Mr Gates has already announc
ed that he will not be a candidate
for reappointment.
Still another report is that the
railroad commissioner O. R. Fyler
will not be reappointed to the rail
road commission. A number of pe

Paris, Nov 18. The hearing of the
suit brought by Count Bonl de Cas

Sagan, formerly his wife, for the cus
tody of his three children, was to
day postponed until November 25.
This action was taken at the request
of Albert Clemenceau, counsel for
the princess, who announced that he
had just' entered the case and that
it was impossible for him to proceed
to-day. M. Bonnet, the Count de
Castellane's . lawyer, did. not oppose
the request of M. Clemenceau for
postponment, but he formally pe
titioned the court to place the chil
dren in the care of the Marquise de
Castellane, mother of Count Bonl,
pending a setttlement of the case, on
the ground that they were uncom
fortable and ill in the house' of their
mother, the princess, and because it
was desirable that they should escape
the atmosphere, unhealthful both
morally and physically, which he al
leged pervaded the home of the
mother. The court ruled that it
could not pass upon this question to
day and the entire matter went over
for one week.

John H. Jones ' Met Death at . the
- Scovill Factory.
John H. Jones, aged 25 years, a
native of Utica, N. Y. for some time
past in charge of an elevator at
building No 41 of the Scovill Man
ufacturing Co, was killed yesterday
afternoon about 4 o'clock by being
caught between the platform of the
elevator and. one of the floors. He
was caught just below the chin and
was held so tight it required the as
sistance of several men to extricate
the body. He was alone when the
accident happened and the assump
tion Is that he was trying to board
the car while It was in motion. A
boy named Martel was the first to
see the body hanging from the ele
vator and spread an alarm. Medical
Examiner Crane viewed the remains
and gave permission for their re
moval to Mulville's morgue. He was
interested in Y. M. C. A. work and
was a young man of good habits.
