THE EVENING DEMOCRAT.
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.

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

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

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. :

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. At
