iWATERBUKY EVENING DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 190S.
LLEGED RODDER HELD 'Uid Who Tried to Pick Pocket Under a $2,000 Bood. There was no defense to-day In the cue agaltmt the alleged pickpocket, Matthew Flynn, alias Michael Cllynn, for ' attempting to rob Timothy O'Rourke of his wad of $600 on a train at. the old depot on the evening of December 8, when tho last boxing exhibition was held bore. Attorney Kennedy , for the defense, threw nil bis efforts into a plea to keep down the bail.. Judge Burpee Axed It at 2,000, apparently believing that Mr Kennedy had nothing to say on that point, but it ' transpire that Mr Kennedy had a whole lot to say and he said it with a vehemence that was striking and pointed." The last nail for the case for the state was what purported to be Flynn's police record in New York. Mr Kennedy objected to this record on the ground that it was not the correct one. . It was ac companied by two photographs, which, If they were not likenesses ol the accused looked like him as much s possible.- The record showed that the original of the pictures-was ar rested under the name of Frank Wil liams and had an alias, Joe Stelner, his business being picking pockets, his' age 22 on- June 19, 1898. The record was allowed la and then Mr (Kennedy said J2.000 was too mucn ball for the crime alleged. He knew of cases In the superior court where the penalty was five,, ten and fifteen years and yet the bond was not more than $1,500. . He reminded the court that In a local case wherein a man was charged with theft of goods worth $5,000 from a' large concern the bond was only $1,200. Why then should it be $2,000 in a case. where the accused was charged only with attempting to commit a crime? v The fact that another party to this case Jumped his ball should have nothing to do with it; every case stands on Its own legs. There is no reason, he said, to suspect that Flynn would forfeit his bail. It was simply Impos sible to expect a stranger like Flynn to get bail of $2,000 here. Judge Burpee replied that the main thing to be considered was the influence of the crime charged on the accused's mind. The fact that he eHcaped from an officer a year ago would Indicate that he would escape again if he had the chance. The pen alty of the crime charged has not much to do with fixing bail, after all, for a person may run from the con nequencea. of a small crime as well as he would from the consequences of a larger crime. The influence of this trial on the mind of the accused Is palpable. He evaded justice a year ago, therefore the only object In fix ing ball now is to keep him from es caninsr Brain. - He has welched all the consequences and It ,is evident from his flight of a year ago that he would, not stand trial now If he got the chance of going away. The court accordingly fixed bail at $2,009 re marking that it in the course of time circumstances come up which might merit a hearing for a reduction he would be glad to hear them. Flynn will be kept In the station house un til to-morrow noon and if he falls to secure bail by that time he shall be removed to the county jail In New Haven. This was allowed by the court with the consent of the police and at the request of Mr Kennedy. It does not pay to obstruct a con , stable and Eugene Gagne who keeps a grocery store at 346 South Main street ought to know this. Yester day Constable Waller B. Lannen served an attachment . on , Oagne's store .leaving a keeper In charge. After an hour or so Lannen return ed and Gagne went for him. There was a scuffle all over the store dur ing which the officer had his face scratched, but he returned the com pliments with interest. Then results began to pile upon Gagne. He was arrested for breach of the peace and that cost him $10 In the city court to-day. Then Lannen sued him civ illy for damages of $200 thus oblig ing him to obtain bail to avert another attachment on his store. Tony Bellentone sneered at Officer Grady yesterday when told .to move on. He was fined $5 .and costs . In court to-day. The case against Isaac Sesselman for obtaining money under false pretences was continued to Saturday. Martin Dowllng while Intoxicated yesterday had a meal at a Greek restaurant on Spring street and then refused to pay for It. He was fined $10 and costs. Emll Reuther paid what he owed on his probation and thus setled his case. James " McGowan promised to pay up. He "was also charged with violat ing the probation laws. His, case was conuaueu iuiny uhvb. MINISTERS RAP ROOSEVELT. Letter on Catholic For President Con . demned by Protbytoriant. New "York, Nov. 24. TUe Presbyte rian. Ministers' association of Net? York adopted a resolution protesting against the statement by President Roosevelt that a Catholic, like any oth er worthy citizen, was entitled to the votes of his countrymen for president. The resolution was as follows: - Remlved. That the' Pribytrln Minis ton' association of New York and vicini ty corillally indorses tho letter of tho New York Lutheran ministers to Presi dent Roosevelt and sympathises with them In their protest aaralnst the charge of "narrow bigotry" by bim made afainst any who might refuse to vote for ona who otherwise fit happens to serve some particular creed. The letter of our Lutheran brethren snakes It very clear that the antiquated policy of the Vatican to the claim of su premacy In temporal things, as In spir itual, renders It inadvisable on purely pa triotic grounds to vote Into high office any man who owes allegiance first to the pope and then to the neoole. . " Charged With Murder Rochester, Nov 24. Mrs Georgi na Sampson of Palmyra, widow of Harry Sampson, nephew of the late admiral, was arrested to-day charged with -the murder .of her husband, whose death waa first said to 1 caused by luiclda. TOE SEWER TRIP ,r-X- Commissioners Tbat Dade II Are Pleased With Work. The last section of the prelimin ary, work of , tha . sewage disposal works has been finished and yester day the board of works with City Engineer Cairns, Engineers Taylor and.Mounton, and a few reporters Inspected the job. All the commis sioners were present with the excep tion of Martin Scully; the mayor was also absent. ' . The part of the big sewage carrier just finished is known as section No 3. It is three quarters of a mile In length, about one third of the entire length of the sewer. The average person, unless he goes through the tunnel, which is just like a subway cannot realize the gigantic undertak ing this scheme Is. The preliminary work Is just abr.it finished and the cost to date has been about $200, 000. It will' Ukr, three times this amount before it is finished, it is a very intricate piece of work and shows much ingenuity and original ity upon the part of the engineers. Aitnougn .tnere la. liKeiy tc be some, litigation over - the part of the sys-r tern the engineers do not seem to think the city will be obliged to pay anything for using the septic bed process of the, Cameron company, The inspecting party started yes terday at the point where the plumb ing station will be. The tourists had to climb down into a hole nod some of them had much difficulty in 'get ting down. This plumbing stution will be one of the principal parts of the system. There ' the sewage will go through . several processes and after leaving, will start on its final Journey: The main carrier is considerably wider and deeper, nt this point, and the velocity;, of the sewage decreases to ono fourth which allows much of the suspend ed matter to preclplate. The refuse which goes, to the bottom Is then cleaned out with dredging buckets. There are three chambers or ca nals running from the pumping sta tion. The main carrier, the main In fluent and main effluent. The mam carrier is the safety valve for the entire system. It rs fou.- feet five inches high and four feet six inches wide. One tan imagine the dimen- sons when It is possible for four per sons, to ride .through ; on a truck. Seated comfortably on low chairs up on the truck, the inspectors were pushed along by a couple "f wont men.s Through six months of the year, from December 1 to June 1', when the city does not have to pur ify Its sewage, It ' will go tearing along through this main carrier. . The main influent Is that which runs to the septic tanks where the sewage Is partly purified. The ef fluent main is that which connects the septic tanks with the filter beds the last part of the process. The controller house is where the sewage Is finally disposed of. From this house several gates will be op erated. The sewage can be turned into the river at this point or it can be sent along the canal further and into the river some distance below. It is here' that the "sludge", will be taken from the- tanks and carried to the "sludge bed" located on an ele vation some distance away. 'There will be no work done on the system this winter. All the contracts that have been let hijve bo-i finished and it now remains for the board to is sue bonds for other contracts. From now on the money expended will be gin to show Itself as practically all the work will be above ground. There will be 10 acres of beds and each acre will purify. 2,000,000 .gal lons of sewage. There will be ,120, 000 tons of crushed stone, of the "two Inch" kind used In the beds. There will be four and one half acres of reservoirs. The total sewage of this city at present amounts to 10,000,000 gal lons daily. This plant will be-able to take care of 53,000,000 per day, consequently when the plant is fin-, ished-lt should be good for years and years. The sewage when it leaves the plant, while not really fit for drinking purposes, will be purer than that which now flows through the Naugatuck. Or course there is uo telling ht.w pure that is. A man bas no regard for one who would take a bath there bright and early every morning. " The commissioners present yester day were pleased with what they saw and the novelty of the trip, although Commissioners Walker and Hock found it almost too much of an ex perience. Before they entered the main carrier to.taVg their seats on the truck they had to cross a plank about ten feet long. It was stretch ed over a chamber about fifteen feet deep in whl;;h there was a goodly quantity of rain water. The plank was very limber and Hock as well as Walker was scared out of his life. It reallv looked as though the plank might cave In for It apeared to be very thin. Hock was tne nrst ot the heavyweights to cross and heav ed a sigh of relief as he made the last step.' He did all the wore wit n one foot. Walker did the same. Whether the city will have to pay a royalty to the Cameron company for royalty on the septic beds It Is a question. William Garvin Taylor, who planned the whole system, does not think the city will have to pay a cent. The city has , already de cided to fight the-clalm of the Cam eron company and $600 has been sent to oppose the company which claims to have a patent on these beds. - CAST YOVR BREAD, Ac. Rights of Columbus Get Money Back from San Francisco. Sheridan council, K- of C, hat re ceived a check from the Knights at San Francisco for 1104.96. which is 83 per cent of what the council paid to help sufferers from the earthquake at that place.

It appears tbat about $50,000 waa (eft over after takiug care of every need? case.
