era' of the department of finance hold
a moetlng In the aldermanlo cbanw
. bur yesterday afternoon for the pur-
; pose of hearing parties who desired
to have a word to say regarding the
estimate for 1909.
John O'Neill, president of the
board of agents of the Bronson libra
ry, was the first speaker. He said
he would be brief because he had a
notion that the less the speakers' said
the more they would get, but while
he was on his feet he wanted to say
that at the very lowest he hoped an
appropriation of $S,000 will" be made
: for the library with an addition of
between $1,100 and $1,200 to pay
an assessment ' levied against the li
brary for the widening of Grand
street. Smiling at the cussedness of
e the. thing, Mr O'Neill stated that tn.9
city cut into the library lawn, taking
away a very valuable piece of proper
ty and. assessed them big benefits for
the privilege of losing their proper
ty. ' The total Income of the library,
he said, is $11,500, and something In
the neighborhood of $8,000 of this Is
pnld. out for labor, leaving a very
- small sum for books and such other
Items of expense as are necessary to
keep the institution up to the times
There will be some expense' this year
In fixing up the lawn, planting shrub
bery and getting the place Into keep
ing with property in the Immediate
neighborhood, and this, added to
keeping up the regular work of cir
culating books at the library, in. the
schools and at deposit stations, could
not be continued without, a liberal at
proprlatlon from the city. . "You
took bur property away from us and
now we want something in return for
it," said Mr O'Neill. , "Give at leasi
. $7,, 000, and as much as you like over
that." . ,
B. H. Fitzpatrick, principal of the
Croft, school, for many years a mem
ber of the board-of agents of the
Bronson library, the librarian, Miss
Sperry, Miss Bossidy, principal of the
Washington school, and Miss O Neill,
principal of the Mulcahy school, also
spoke regarding the library matter,
and between the whole of them they
made out a pretty good case in favor
of an appropriation large enough to
enable the library to keep up with
the procession.
.William E. Kennedy, superinten
dent of the water works, and Com
nilssloner Scully represented the de
partment of public works. Mr Scully
said that a good deal of work or
dered done by the board of aldermen
in still on the waiting list, and that
the board would like to be In a posi
tion to take up the whole of it next
year, but they knew this was out o
the question and kept down to sub'
stantially the same amount as they
had last year, and, therefore, they
hoped there, would be no cutting. He
thought, though, that the sum total
should be added to so as to enable
the board to purchase a sprayer to
enable . the' superintendent of parks
to cope, with the elm leaf beetle in
cage it Rhould make war on th)
trees next season.
Superintendent Kennedy explained
the need .of, a larger main in lower
Baldwin street as far out as Cherry
street, also the condition of the
reservoirs and what should be done
In order to guard against contamina
tion. The mayor asked Mr Kennedy
several questions, all of which were
answered In a manner which showed
that the superintendent Is on to his
job. . . .
- About $25,000 is asked this year
by the board of public works for the
bureau of engineering, so that the
department may-have its own appro
priation, but the item "Streets, new
work," Is made about $25,000 less
than last year, so that the engineer's
appropriation is not in excess of what
the board had for 1908.
. Superintendent Beach of the police
department. Fire Marshal Snagg and
Commissioner Minor appeared for the
police and fire departments. They
want a new grade in the police de
partment to which officers will be
eligible after two years' service, the
wages to be $3 per day, tne same as
men get In nearly every other town
of this size all over the country. At
present tne maximum salary for na-
trolmen In Waterbury is $2.75 a day
and the minimum $2.25. The board
also desires to make an additional
title to the detective force, the men
to be known as detective sergeants
This does not carry with it any in
crease--in pay and will have to be
passed upon by. the aldermen. They
want nve new men, or. in the lan
guage of the speakers, they are ask
ing for Ave, but they need at least
twenty-five. Many sections of the
city are poorly policed, but the de
partment Is doing the best it can
with the number of. men at Its com
mand. The principal thing desired
by tne nre department is an nuto
chemical apparatus which can be had
for about $5,500. This would nut
the Leavenworth, street house In a
position to take care of still alarms
and small fires without running any
risk of being handicapped in case a
- bell alarm should come in while they
were out on tne other.
.jur John D. Freney, president of
the board of health, represented that
department, and he did his work well.
He said the board hadn't asked for
an appropriation for a new crematory
because they knew they would not
get It and besides the crematory busi
ness Is still in the experimental stage
and after a few years Waterbury will
have the benefit of the experience
gained by other cities where Incinera
tion plants are now being construct
ed. He paid a high compliment to
the efficiency of the health officials,
specially Sanitary Inspector Calla
han, whom he considered one of the
most efficient officials in that line of
business in New England.
Superintendent B. W. Tinker. John
McDonald, Edward B. Reiley, Jr. and
Walter A. Monagan appeared for the
board f education, Mr Tinker con
fining himself to school matters gen
erally.' Mr McDonald declaimed upon
the necessity of keeping the educa
tional Institutions of the city up to
inc. highest possible standard, so that
the youth of the community .may
have an opportunity to go into the
battie of life equipped with a liberal '

part of the next congress to. vpfl urn

education. Mr Monagan talked on
salaries, and Mr Reiley's theme was
school property and how it should be
cared for... He explained why the
board wants to purchase four or five
lots at the Walsh school and build
an addition there, and also why the
Mulcahy school should be fenced and
the lot put in shape so that it may be
used as a play ground without tnn
much risk to life and limb. All an

items in the school aDnrenrlRHnna
and from their point of view mads it
plain that their estimates are modest
and should not be reduced;

estimates, but they will be consid
ered at a meeting to be held this afternoon.
