F., meets this evening to elect officers for the ensuing year. The articles which were not drawn at the American Mechanics' fair will be drawn at Bronson's hall this evening. The Committee on Abatements meets this evening. To-morrow the Fire Com missioners and Sewer Commissioners will meet. ' The concert and ball of the employes of the Waterbury Clock Company, at Concor dia Hall last night was largely attended, and proved quite a success. Harmony Lodge, F. & A. M., will in stall its officers this evening. After in stallation, Past Master, Nathan Dikeman will deliver an historical address. At a meeting of the Glee Club of Trinity College, held at Hartford yesterday alter- noon, it was aeciaea to give a concert in this city on Thursday evening, February 9. The funeral of little Emma Godfrey, who died of injuries sustained by being run over by Thomas Hayes' horse, Monday, was attended from the chapel in Simoris ville this afternoon. Those who climbed the stairway up to Grand Army hall last evening did not hear the eloquence of. P. J. McGuire, of the National Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners. Mr Mcguire sent a telegram last night stating that the correspondence did not reach him in time to make arrange ments to come. The cold wave whistled into form, put on a stiff upper lip and swooped down on the city to-day. The change was expected but very sudden. Water standing in pools at 10 o'clock, were solid cakes of ice at noon. At 4 o'clock there was a stiff breeze and the mercury was hugging the twenties and making for zero. . A young man about 19 years old went down South Main street this morning in a-very drunken condition. In front . of Twining's store he attempted to climb up an iron post, but only distinguished him self by falling down on the sidewalk. He said he was wild Bill and the War whoops that he gave would convince any one that his statements were true. The scholars of Miss McCarthy's room in the ' High School building, will give a grand Christmas entertainment to-morrow evening. An upright piano has been plac- ed in the room and the entertainment will consist of a juvenile play entitled, "A Day Before Christmas," in which ten, scholars will take part; a Christmas exercise repre senting Christ's birth, together with in strumental music on the piano and violin. Miss Ida Warner will deliverjan address of welcome, and it will be one of the best en- tertainments ever given at this school. The Christmas fair of the Ladies Mission Circle of the First Church last evening was largely attended. Like all entertainments given by the Circle, it was a complete suc cess, a success that can only be'attained by painstaking efforts and judicious manage - ment. The fair was held in the lecture room and besides the tempting delicacies there was "a beautiful display of fancy work. Not the least attraction, however,' was the organum humanum, which was located in the parlor, and filled with won der those who listened to its sweet music. The Odd Fellows have a fixed rule con cerning their beautiful hall in Irving Block from which they do not deviate. No local . organization can rent their hall at any price, but this does not apply to grand lodges and state encampments. There is, however, some feeling among certain mem bers against even this exception . being made, and the action of Nosahogan Lodge, on their part in extending to the Grand Army the use of the hall for the state en campment to be held . here in February is developing mat xeeuiig wj a cunsiueiauic extent. Of course the hall cannot be had by the Grand Army unless Townsend Lodge ; shall endorse the action of the older lodge.' A -prominent member of Townsend Lodge said this morning that he had no objections to the state encampment being held in Odd . Fellows' hall, and many others were of the same opinion, but a few, he said, did not appprove of the idea. The representatives of several of the city churches held a meeting at the Meth odist church parlors last evening. The Protestant churches, with the exception of St John's and Trinity, were represented. The meeting was for the purpose of devis- ' ing plans to continue the undenomination al services at the Opera house. The fol lowing committees were appointed to carry out the work. Music A. M. Blakeslee, : Thomas Fitzsimons, C. White, W. F. York, T. L. Willis, S. B. Terry, Joseph . Spencer, Geo. Chapman and George Boyd. Finance committee G. W. Beach, C. B. Vail. James G.

Whetmore. The pastors of the different churches will act as a committee on the form of religious service, and will also attend to advertising, printing, etc. The selection of a chorister and the supply of hymn books were left to the committee on music. The commit tee will meet again at the Y. M. C. A. rooms at 8.45 o'clock Friday evening. A very interesting case heard - before Justice D. F. Webster this morning was one of the 19 cases pending against the town of Washington for not putting up proper sign posts. Attorney N. R. Bron son of this city, while acting as counsel for another party, brought these suits against this town. The suits are brought under the law of 1797. Section 2, Chapter 12, Title 20 of the General Statutes reads: "Ev ery town which neglects or refuses to erect and maintain guide posts as Tequired by ' law. or suitable substitutes therefor shall fnrfeit annuallv $5 for every such post." A nnention of law was raised by the defend ant, claiming that the suits ought to be brought against these towns in the name of the state, as well as in the name of Mr v Bronson. Justice Webster adjourned the caso to Friday, January 6, at 10 a. m. A prominent gentleman connected with this case said that last summer a number of gentlemen visiting in Litchfield County complained of how disagreeable it was to .4n.ai fnun onetowu to another, without having guide posts to direct them, and it is " t.-Si iv ooo iTAtlmpn wArfl instrn. EWratfSSS A curious crowd of men gathered a: ound 1 two prisoners at the depot this afternoon,to see them take their departure for jail. It is hoped that their curiosity was satisnea. The case of Gierdine vs Norton was still on trial before Judge Warner in the District Uourt to-day. xne piainnn nmsneu. na side this morning and the defendant began the introduction of testimony this after noon. -. December number of the "School Re corder." published by George W. Wilbur, Birmingham,Ct., gives the rollof honor for perfect attendance and excellent conduct of pupils in all the public schools in this city for the month of November. fThnTlfts H. Buckland. an employe of the Waterbury Brass Company, put a large lump of wet brass into a crucible at the works, causing a slight explosion. As a result the young man painfully burned both his hands and wrists, and will be un able to work for some time. Court Shields, No 7487, A. O. F., elected the following officers for the ensuing term at their meeting held last evening: C. R., J. J. McDonald; S. C. R., B. F. Reid; treasurer, M. F. Carmody; financial secre tary, James H. Freney; recording secretary, Dennis- J. Galvin; S. W., Thomas Bahan; J. W., John F. Bossidy; S. B., John D. S. Hendricks; J. B., James H. Madden; phy sician, Dr E. W. McDonald; auditors, A. J. Wolf, P. M. Harty, John F. O'Brien; trus tees, Walter J. Hennessey, John H. Moran, James Hackett, Druggist B. Bossidy. THE RAFT SCENE. Something That Was Not Down on the Programme. Waterbery people had seen Charles T. Grillev. of this city, and a member of At kinson fr. Cook's Stock company, in three rharacters. for which he is by nature emi nentlv fitted. He had the advantage of disguise and it was easy to conceal his em barrassment: but last nieht in the drama "Queen's Evidence." he passed through the crucial test." He played the character of a young magistrate and the only disguise he wore, and tnac was not a disguise ai, uu, was a tuft of hair on the side of his face. He appeared at ease, In the second act he was makiner love to Miss Edna Sydney, but did not get on very well with the young lady, who left his side and walked across the staee. He rose and followed her continuing his importunities. "I nev er loved any other girl in my life," he ex claimed pflssionatelv. But he never fin ished the . sentence, There was a loud explosion and an illumination in the flies that startled the audience, and the orches tra struck up "Johnny, Get Your Gun,?? The audience "caught on" and were con vulsed with lauhsrter. Grilley faced the music with the easa and grace of a man that had followed the prof essson for years Finally when the audience had sufficiently recovered he exclaimed: "That must be the raftjscene," and when the applause had subsided proceeded Wttft tne piay w"U remarkable equanimity. THE CITY PAYS SOME OF ITS DEBTS. Interesting Developments in Court A Clerical Error Claimed hy the Town, It was developed before Judge Brad- street in the District Court yesterday af ternoon in the case of the Town of Water hnrv aeainst the Citv of Waterbury that the city has settled its snare or tne in surance for 1886. having now onlya claim bv the town of between S100 and UU The principal at stake, however, is just the same and tne case wm oe as zeaiousiy f oueht bv both sides as if $100,000 were involved. When the Democrat was going to press the lawyers were kicking about the ad missibility of evidence concerning the records of the Court of Common Council prescribing and modifying the power previous to 1885 of the Committee on Public Lands and -Buildings. Attorney Terry, for the city;; objected, but his ob iection was overruled and he noted an exception. ; . . (Jity Clerk Jiiiduit tnen in response po Attorney Burpee, for the town, said that he knew of no vote passed by the Uourt ot Common Council to that effect since the Committee on Public Lands and Buildings was created. ' .Councilman John Blair, a member of the Committee on Public Lands and Buildings and agent for City Hall, read from the minutes of the Committee to the effect that the Committee on October 18, 1885, voted to insure the City Hall and contents for $60,000 for one year from November 2, 1885, and that arrangements tor the same be left with the Committee on the part of the town in the Board. The Committee on the part of the town were Benjamin Sedgwick, George A, Bronson. Boughton and O, H. Mr Terry claimed that the Committee had no authority to make a contract to ex tend beyond tl eir term of office. Mr Blair, continuing read from the minutes showing that the Committee voted on October 39, 1886 to insure the City Hal. for $60,000, the committee on the part of the town to present the subject to the Court of Common Council for approval and tnat arrangements lor tne insurance be left to the committee on the part of the town.- Attornev Terry objected to this line of testimony and voted an exception." Mr Blair said he could not nnd any record of any such vote m Iced or 1884, nor did - he have any knowledge ot any such vote having been passed while he was a member of the committee, and an ex amination of the minutes did not reveal it. Selectman J. B. Doherty testified that the town had paid the premium on an in surance on the City Hall of $60,000 for 1885 and 1886. The city had recently re imbursed the town except $112. oU due on the insurance for 1885. In previous years the city had paid the town, but always few months late. Attorney Terry objected to the question concerning the method that had been pur sued in the purchase of coal. It was over ruled and the defense noted another ex ception. . Col Doherty said that John Blair bought the coal upon the authority of the Joint Committee on Public Lands and Buildings. The town's portion had always been paid for. . In regard to gas bills Mr Blair paid the bill this year and last year. " Mr Blair, being recalled, said that he bought the coal, and the town and city paid the bills, which are sent, one-nait to the town and one-half to the city. The gas bill, janitor's salary and inciden tals he bought out of the receipts from City Hall. . E. T. Root, of Smith & Root, insurance agents, testified that he insured City Hall in 1884 and 1885, and nearly every year since 1869. The. town had always paid the premium except in 1886. City Clerk Kilduff, being recalled, testi fied that the Court of Common Council in November 1885, appropriated $500 for the Committee on Public Lands and Buildings for the year 1886. He read from the minutes a vote passed by both branches appropriating $900 to pay for the insurance on City Hall for two years from 1886.. , Attorney Burpee said here that he would call for the original vote. , He said that he understood that- there had been a mis take in the dating of .this resolution, that it should have been two years from 1885. Attorney Terry said if it had been under stood that way there would have been three votes in the Council for it and none in I the Board of Aldermen. "They did not -intend nj eWh thing," ho -cbnttaieM "They wanted to find out whetherthe Com mittee on Public Lands and Buildings was bigger than the Court of Common Council" and that is what we are trying this case for. He should object to its introduction, if it could be found, and the court sustained him and the plaintiff noted an exception. At this point counsel being unable to nmHnra t.TiH auditor's books asked for an adjournment and the case will probably be .i i i - : J. nmsnea some umo iitsiu OUE CITY'S CHRISTMAS TBA0E.

The New Havens won again last night the Bridgeports being the victims. Score 5 to 3. About . 1,000 spectators saw the Hart fords do up the Waterburys last night in gloe and exciting game. The. Telegram says that Referee Perkins did not give sat isfagtion; that Fra?ir- playgsj a rqugh game and would have been called down by a $5 referee, and that just exactly 11 fouls were made during the game, but only two were called. But then the Telegram is in state of mind, you know. The game ended 4 to 2 in favor of Hartford. To-night, at Matt Hewins' billiard par lors, Hartford, will be decided who is the champion pool player of Connecticut. The deciding series of games will be played by Jphn Murphy of Hartford and Fred San derson pf Willimantic, chief clerk in the Willimantio post" office.

Three New Haven men who went to see the Hartford polo game in Meriden TuesT day, feel very sore over the .treatment they received there. They each, made a little bet of $10 to $15 that . Meriden would be beaten, and. were charged $6 commission by the Meriden ticket seller fpr holding the stakes. ,s . . ... F. K. Stearns of the Detroit club told a reporter that Fred Dunlap would be re leased outright and the Pittsburg; club would get him. The other clubs, he says, have agreed to keep their hands off, and Dunlap will get no share in the release money because none will be paid. Richard K. Fox says if Smith cannot be induced to fight Kilrain again he will make Kilrain a present of his $5,000 and also the $1,000 he gave him in the ring to bet with.

The Philadelphia North American savsi "James H.Wallick presented his equine1 melodrama, 'The Cattle King' at the Nation al lneatre last night for the first time in this city. . The play possesses considerable merit.' Mr Wallick plays Bob Taylor (the cattle king) and Dare-Devil Dick, and .wds equally at home in both parts. Mr George Barr played the difficult part of Don Pedro with commendable energy, and Mr L. N. Crowell was dignified as Sir John Paxtoii. The intelligent horses Charger, and Raider, Jim and Texas contribute not ' a little to the spectacular success . of the piece." , Duncan Clark's -Company had another packed house last night.
