We do not mean to proclaim our own praises, or put forward special pleas for public support. We are satisfied with the appearance our paper presents, for the one; the generous support we have received in less than three weeks of existence renders the other almost unnecessary. Still, we shall be grateful if this practi cal testimony should continue to grow with our growth. The expenses of a daily newspaper are extensive and exigent, re quiring immediate money payments for everything: and we but ask that our sub- scribers should fulfill the conditions of their contract by payment in advance. To each patron the sum is infinitesimal; to us the aggregate would be of importance and encouragements Subscribers ordering the Democrat now will become only chargeable for pay ment from the first of January, 1888. We shall endeavor to do our duty for the. classes and parties we represent let these classes and parties give us the correspond ing duty of support. CITY AND SUBURB!""

Elmer of Hartford for $25, a medal and the State champion ship, takes place Thursday evening, De ' cember 22, in the Phalanx Armory, Hart ford. New Haven, like Waterbury, is infested with tramps, and the Police Commission ers of that city are wondering what steps to take against these lodgers. From No vember 1 to December 18, 972 persons have been lodged at the police headquarters and at the precincts of that city. -. . Court Wolf Tone, A. O. F., last evening "'" elected the following officers : C. R. , J. D. Bolan; R. C. R., Thomas C. Nolan; R. S., J. H. Condon; F. S., M. T. Perkinson; J. W., W. T. Kennedy; S. B., J. S. Carroll; J. B., J. Ryan; Physician, J. F. Hayes; chairman of board of trustees, J. Hayes. Judge Warner of the Court of Common Pleas of Litchfield County was engaged in the District Court room to-day hearing the case of John Gierding vs Martin J. Norton, action to recover for a bill contracted by the defendant's wife while, it is alleged, she was abandoned by the defendant. The bill included fancy slippers, wash dish and many other articles which the def en . t dant claims were not necessary. V - The first battalion drill of the season - i was held at the Armory last evening, and was remarkaole tor tne attendance ana good work done, surpassing by far the first battalion drill of last season. Com pany A turned out 60 and Company G 59 men. The men were in fatigue uniform and Lieut Col Doherty had command of the drill. Lieut Bronson acted as adju tant and Corporal Carter as sergeant major. There were four companies in the battalion, commanded by Captain Burpee, Captain Wolfe, Lieutenant Stocking and Lieutenant Fitzpatrick. At the meeting of the Police Commis sioners held last night, all the board were present. On the first ballot to fill vacancy Charles E. Barileault received one vote, and Michael King and Michael Shee hey each one. On the second and third ballots the vote was the same. On the fourth Barileault received two and King and D. J. Delaney each one. The fifth and sixth ballots were the same. On the seventh ballot Barileault and King each received two votes. The eight, ninth and tenth ballots were the same. After some debating it was voted to adjourn sine die. So ends the work of the present Board of Police Commissioners for this year. There were four occupants of the prison ers' dock in the Police Court this morning. Three of them had indulged too freely and were fined 5 each. Michael Brennan was up before the court charged with drawing a revolver upon Willliam Leggett, a fore man at the Waterbury Manufacturing com pany's works. Mr Leggett testified that Brennan called for him at the shop, and demanded that he be given work, to which demand Mr Legget replied that he could ; not comply just at present, whereupon Brennan drew a revolver and threatened to shoot him. In court, Brennan said he was out of work and as the selectmen would not send him to the town house, he took this manner of getting there. Judge Bradstreet gave him 30 days in jail. Col J. B. Doherty met a complete sur- 1)rise at the battalion drill at the Armory ast evening. Just before the drill was commenced Capt Burpee of Company A joined him in the company's room. "I wish you would come down into the hall," said Capt Burpee. "Why, what's up?" said the colonel. "We are late to-night; what do you want of me?" Proceeding to the hall he discovered the reason for his presence. He was greeted with the rap ping of muskets, and when the applause had subsided Capt Burpee, in behalf of the officers and men of Company A, presented him with a handsome "sword, the colonel pleasantly responding. Tho sword is . a handsome one and was made by the Ames Company of Holyoke, Mass. It has a solid silver grip and handsomely ornamented scabbard with a gold-etched diamond blade, bearing the inscription, "Company A, Sec ond Regiment, C. N. G., to Lieut-Col J. Bv Doherty." Private Chris Nolan has been appointed a musician-of Co G. The American Mechanics will clear from $800 to $900 by their recent fair at City Hall. The public schools will close Friday, in order to give the children the usual holiday vacation. Court Hancock, A. O. F., will meet to morrow evenine. to elect officers for the ensuing year. The large crayon picture of C. L. Rogers, in the window of W. F. York's store is the work of C. L. Wright. The arguments in the case of E. F. Cole vs the Centre School District were made before Judge Bradstreet this morning. I The handsome sword which was present ed to Col Doherty by Co A, last evening, is on exhibition in the window of E. T. Turner's store. A few cases of diphtheria are still re ported, but it is thought that the action the Board of Health have taken will prevent the disease from spreading. James H. White, painfully cut two of his fingers while running a planer at the works of the Waterbury Manufacturing Company, to-day. The funeral of Miss Annie Haley, who died at the residence of her father 78 Baldwin street yesterday morning, was at tended from St. Patricks church this morn ing.

Court Wolf Tone are making elaborate preparations for their first annual sociable which will take place Monday afternoon and evenine. January 2. Music by the Amphion orchestra. Uffendale, prompter. A snow-balling contest on South Main street this noon, came to an untimely end when one ot tne contestants received a "hot" one in the mouth. Friends of the principals interfered and prevented a fight. Little J&mma liodtrey, who was run ov er by a runaway horse, belonging to Thorn as Haves, died at 9:30 last night. Her death was not expected by the physician, although she was unconscious Monday, yet the chances of her recovery were very fav orable. A number of Waterbury people went to Bridgeport last night to witness the grand illumination which the merchants of that city have prepared for the holidays. All the principal streets were adorned with arches, lanterns and lights of every de scription. The Democrat is in receipt of a pam phlet containing the full proceedings of the fourth annual convention of the Con necticut State Firemen's association, held at Meriden in August, 1887. It is from the press of the Westport Publishing com pany and is a neat piece oi worK. A year or two ago one of the Yale Col lecre professors had a black cat without a single white hair. Such cats are very rare, and Barnum advertised for one for his show. A day or two after the advertise ment the prof essor's cat disappeared and was searched for in vain, A few weeks ago, the second day after the fire which burned out Barnum's winter quarters at Bridgeport, the black cat reappeared at her old master's. Doubtless she had- been stolen to sell to Barnum and taken her first chance to return to private life, by a 17 mile run across the country from Bridge port to New Haven. CITY HAIX INSURANCE. The Town's Suit Against the City ljegun in the District Court. The suit of the town of Waterbury against the city of Waterbury, to recover $700 for the city's share of maintaining in surance on City hall, was begun before Judge Bradstreet, in the district court this morning. The plaintiff claims that at the request of the defendant, had the City hall, of which the plaintiff and defendant are joint stock owners, insured for $60,000 at one time, at another for $75,000. The plain tiff further claims that the cost of such in surance was $1,712.50. of which the defend ant has paid SdOO, and neglects and refus es to pay the balance, and that the defend ant is bound to pay $900 to the plaintiff as its share of said expenses. The defendant says that on February 7, of this year the plaintiff was indebted to the defend ant, to the sum of $426.24, on account of a sewer assessment upon the plamtitt tor a sewer on Grand street, with interest from September 15, 1884. The plaintiff claims that pretended assessment for laying said sewer on Grand street, did not lay a pro portionate and reasonable part of the ex pense, and was in violation of the city charter and was invalid and ' unconstitu tional. The defendant claims that the plaintiff did not insure the City hall at the request of the defendant and it the com mittee on public lands and buildings re quested such order, it was without due au thority. Attorney Burpee appeared for the plain tiff and City Attorney Terry for the de fendant. The first witness called was City Clerk Kilduff and immediately upon his taking the stand the court took a recess to 2 p. m. The court came in at 2:15 p. m. Mr Kilduff testified from the records of the doings of the Court of Common Council con cerning the appointment of a committee on public Jands and buildings from 1873 to and including 1887. : Attorney Terry wanted Attorney Burpee to amend his bill of particulars so as to show what the town paid in 1885 and 1886. Mr Burpee said that in December 1885 the town paid $900 and in November 1886,they paid the balance. Attorney Terry asked Mr Kilduff if be tween 1885 and 1886 there was anything on the records of the proceedings to show that the Court of Common Council had given the Committee on Public Lands and Buildings any authority. Witness replied in the negative. He referred to the man ner in which the committee reported to the council, on the repairing of City hall and concerning the erection of a flag staff. Attorney Burpee asked if there was any thing on the records to show that the Com mon Council had given or taken any au thority away from the Committee on Pub lic Lands and Buildings. Attorney Terry objected to this as having nothing to do with the case in question, but Mr Burpee held that if the defendant had the right to show that the committee had not been clothed with any authority during 1885-6 the plaintiff had a right to show that the authority of the committee had not been deprived by the council. Mr Terry held that they being servants of the Common Council their services die with the Cora Council. When the council ceased to ex ist the committee ceased to exist. The law yers were fighting on this point at the time of going to press. : If you want a good steak, a broiled chicken or an oyster fry, go to Poppe's, 113 Bank street. 10,000 presents and lowest prices on toys at Twining's Furniture Store, 127 Soutjx Main street. . OUR CITY'S CHRISTMAS TRADE. Our City Trade appears to be booming and blooming. All the forecasts or tne coming festive season are presented with taste and we may add temptation. The store windows are decorated with more than the usual elaboration of Christmas- tide, and we are pleased to add that there is already an amount of patronage to fill the coffers and gladden the hearts of our enterprising store -keepers. . Of course the Democrat advertisers stand easily first in the matter of decorative display. We give this evening another installment of, the Democrat Business Directory: THE ROGERS & HAMILTON CO, Manufacturers of Silver Plated Ware, have no retail nhow nlace in the city, on their for displav of holiday attrac tions; but then this want is compensated for by the fact that every house in the trade is an agency in that direction. You cannot enter any store in the line in which the goods of this large firm ao not noia prominent place, and command apprecia tive admiration. G-REENMAN ANC COMPANY Will be found at 75 Bank street, well sup plied with the absolute necessaries of the season. People may dispense with the or dinary Christmas gifts of ornament and use for personal decoration or sentimen tal regards but look out at your windows just now, .with snow on the ground or frost in the air, or perhaps a rain-storm giving intensity to winter discomforts, and say what your world of home would be without the heat appliances of coal, wood and charcoal. Greenman & Co can supply these aids to home comforts at the most moderate prices of the market. SPENCER & PIERPONT'S Cash Grocery and Meat Market at 142 and 146 East Main street, is another of tne es tablishments in which substantial supplies for Christmas emovments are presented. instead of the sentimental stock-in-trade making up the attractions of gift and toy stores. Choice Groceries, Fresh and Cured Meats, Jt'oultry with most or the accom paniments and accessories of the dining table aie here in abundance and at popular prices. There is here too, as well as at the coal merchants , opportunity given for Christinas presentation. A joint of mut ton er cut or beef or a measure of coal m excess of your own order, sept to that poor family that you know of, would be a gilt to give comtort. THE GREAT A. & P. TEA COMPANY, At 19 East Main street, present another of those special atractions for the Christmas time, not dependent on the attributes of souvenirs of the season, but on those things which give zest in the furnishings of our own enjoyable breakfast tabje. Tea is the staple of this house, but Coffee of the finest flavor and richest aroma is a supplementary specialty. A visit and trial are invited. WHITE & WELLS 156 BANK STREET. In perambulating the streets in search of Christmas gift show stores, the passers-by at 156 Bank street, will see an establish ment without any tqys, dqlls or fancy goods on exhibition; but perchance they may be reminded of some household needs by the stock of Paper, Twine and Straw Boards at White & Wells. Wrapping pa pers suitable for butchers, grocers, &c, are in varied sizes and strengths. ROE'S PHARMACY. At 12 Baldwin street, like the establish ments of his brothers, in the Drug- trade, presents some choice articles-r-varied and extensive in the holiday gift line; and at prices, as the proprietor announces, in his advertisement, "way down." lhis asso ciation or physic and playthings may ap pear at first view incongruous but there is a close relationship between mirth and medicine : indeed mirth is medicine of it self. ENTERTAINMENTS. JACQUES' OPERA HOUSE. A large audience witnessed the presenta tion of ' 'The Lancashire Lass" by the Atkin son & Cook Stock Company at the Opera House last evening, it is a thrilling drama the scene of which is laid in and about Liverpool. Mr Grilley has a legitimate part in this piece and figures to advantage during the nrst act. He plays the charac ter of a Lancashire farmer and does it well, too. The cast is well made up and the presentation was greatly enjoyed by the audience, The Company will to-night present "Queen's Evidence, or Stricken Blind." 'James H. Wallick and his fine Company will appear at the Opera House next Mon day, giving two performances, "Cattle King" in the afternoon and "Bandit King" in the evening. Says the Philadelphia Herald: "At the National Theatre the popu lar and exciting play entitled 'The Cattle King' was given last night. This piece is a thrilling and realistic portrayal of life on tne plains, and was welcomed toy one the largest houses of the season. Mr "Wal lick's rendition ot 'Tne uattle June was all that could be desired, and he was greeted by round after round of applause The gentleman was also equally at home in tne character or Dare-JJevu .Dick. A great feature of the play was the introduc tion of the trained horses, which added much to its spectacular success. Mr Wal lick also had the support of a very strong company." Ine Windsor Theatre was crowded yes terday, arid Duncan Clark's female min strels made one of the greatest successes ever scored in this house by a similar or ganization. The first part was very en joyable, and the jokes were refreshingly new and created much hearty laughter. The oho was well arranged, and the differ ent members of the. organization presented specialties which were well received. The young ladies who make up the combination are handsome and well formed and dressed with good taste and the groupings, tab leaux and marches are especially worthy of commendation. The dudes' parade and moypole quadrille were notable features of a very pleasing bill. The same perform ance will be repeated every afternoon this week. Boston Herald, November 15.
