City Engineer Weld disclaims the re sponsibility for the recent overflow of Little brook and makes the toiiowing statement: "When the sewer was built through Brook street we found the arch over Little brook built up just as it is built now. Kellner, the contractor, put it back in even better condition than he found it. We found the culvert which oueht to have four feet of water way more than half filled, which we had re moved in order to make a thorough lob of it. After Contractor Kellner had finished the work Inspector Carpenter went through from Greac brook with a lantern and saw that everything had been cleared out. No planks of any kind had been left there. About two weeks aero there was a break on Brook street. Mayor Bough ton came to me and said I had better have it repaired. I took Albert Chat field to look at the break, and we un covered part of the arch where the hole was and found the top of the arch had fallen in. This was not where the sewer msspil. but to one side. It was not the flag, but the stone arch that fell Between Levi and Buaby blocks some body put in two galvanized water pipes about o"e and one-half feet from the top of the arch. Where they took up part of th arch it was not properly replaced Tho nines should have crossed the bot tom of the brook. I told Albert Chat field to take all the stones out of tho brook and repair the break, which he did in mv presence. W e found no sign of a plank in the brook. Only a small stream of water was flowing. Now as to the cause of the burst. There was a set-back first in Little brook some where above East Main street and the water came out. After the dam which had formed at that point gave way the rubbish came down with a rush and caus ed the obstruction of Brook street. The point which had recently been repaired was the weakest spot and narurany n gave away. 1 understand anoiner sman break appeared on the street a tew days ago which filled up, but of this I know notluntr. Any part of this brook doesn t come under my care except io see that what is torn up by the sewers is put back. Again, and that everything was left in proper shape when the sewer went through Brook street I can prove by proper witnesses. The whole cause of the trouble is the mi-uise of the brook by people living along its course." Engineer Weld makes a clear state ment but it will hardly prove satisfac tory to the flooded storekeepers. In justice to the engineer, sewer inspector and contractor, the road board and the merchants, an official investigation should be made. THAT OTHER BREAK. The other break which Engineer Weld refers to was discovered by Thomas Callahan, who reported the same to Inspector Colley. It is claimed that Inspector Colley caused the hole to bo filled with gravel and stones without making an investigation into the cause of the hole. An explanation from Mr Colley is in order. POLICE COURT. An Unusually Busy Session Before Juiljjo Bradstreet. Thomas Lane who hails from North ampton, Mass, was the first victim this morning. He arrived in Waterbury Friday night and applied for lodging at the station house. .Saturday night he was again an applicant for free board, but this time was drunk. He was locked up and this morning was given 30 days in jail. Joseph Lachance entered the rink Saturday where the female race was in progress, and attempted to interfere with the runners on the track.

In the tus sel Lauipkin was thrown down the stairs leading to the rink and broke his leg in two places. This morning Lachance pleaded guilty and was fined 5 and costs for drunkenness and 30 days in jail for breach of peace. The postponed cases of the persons who took part in the athletic exhibition io - Williams and Harvey's rooms a Week ago, came up for trial this morn ing. Thomas Magner er. tered a demurrer in his case. Peter Keely, William Har vey, William Nichols, William Galvin, Thomas Peters, John Smith and Joe Williams were all defended by Attorney O'Neil. Only the two Harveys, Williams and Ed and Peter Keeley were put on the witness, stand. They all testified that the exhibition was free to every body and that it was only an advertise ment to draw in members to the club. Attorney O'Neill made a strong plea, citing several cases where the law was broken but the accused were acquitted because of having no malicious inten tion to break the law. Judge Brad street thought the statute in the city ordinance had been violated and im posed a fine of $25 on all but Williams, whom lie discharged. An appeal was taken. Eire in Bridgeport.

The plans for the proposed changes at tho Bnrnham street crossing have been submitted by the New York JNew England Railroad company to the rail road commissioners, and a hearing will be given those interested, in the district courtroom at 11:20 o clock to-morrow morning. In accordance with an order from Judge Andrews the railroad trucks will be raised only two and one-half feet, unless a private arrangement can be agreed upon by the railroad compan and the city. The railroad people made a proposition in which they agree to raise their tracks five feet more than the original order, but the city attorney and city engineer did not look with favor upon the proposition and the matter has been allowed to pass unaccepted. A great mistake will bo made if the tracks are raised only two and one-half feet. The grade of South Leonard street and a number of other regularly laid out streets in that vicinity will have to be changed and a number of cellars will require re-building. This is a mat ter in which the needs of the future should be carefully considered. In all probability the grade crossing at Porter street will be ordered abolished before manv vears. Bv raising the railroad tracks high enough at this time the ex pense of tunneling Porter street, when the work is ordered, will be compara tively small. Mavor Boughton said to-day that he favored raising the tracks as high as possible, but that he was powerlees to do anything in the matter. City Engineer Weld and City Attorney lerry reported unfavorably upon the proportion of the railroad company and the matter died in the council. Assessor Saxe, who thoroughly understands the lay of the land, was of like opinion. The trouble has been that the members of the court of common council did not thoroughly understand the situation when they reiected. without an invest' gation, the olfer of the railroad company. It is not too late yet to save ourselves in this important matter, and the situation should be thoroughly argued before the commissioners to-morrow, if not by our cityofncials bv the property owners in the Brooklyn district, who will suffer most by the changes. WATERBURY CHET2 K. How a Book Agent Became Popular in Middletown, The Hartford Post of Saturday says A book agent called at a livery stable in Middletown one day last wees to sell a book. It was a valuable work, and the livervman and several of his friends who were present thought of taking one each During the conversation the book agent gave Waterbury Ins place of residence, whereupon the livervman said that he formerly lived in that city and was a fi nancial sufferer through dealings with some of its citizens. He mentioned one name, that ot a cnurcn aeacon, wno nan owed him a bill, and he had never been able to collect it. the book agent inquir ed as to the amount of the bill and what it was for, and on being informed took out his pocketbook and counted out the money with the remark: "l am that man; here's your money; give me a re ceipt. Now "then, can't I sell you a copy of this great work, which, as I previously remarked, lias had the endorsement of eminent divines, learned scholars, promi nent teachers, distinguished editors, celebrated " "I'll take four copies," said the livery man, and signed his name io me oook. The cost was 824, while the old bill which the book agent paid was $18, just the amount of his commnsion. It was a sharp trick, and well played, and has made that book agent many friends in Middletown. FIFTY" VEARS AGO. A Sevoi o Winter that Started in on Tho First of December. A correspondent writes as follows of an old lasmoned winter in jitcnneid county: "Fifty years ago to-day, I had charge of a large farm in the town of Watertown. The last day of November was a clear, beautiful day and the cattle were in green pastures, towards night it began to grow somewhat chilly and it was a little blue in the south, otherwise there was no sign of a storm. I retired early and got up lato in the morning. the 1st of December to see the snow fully three feet deep. The first thing to do was to hnd mv sheep, which 1 did by hitching up two large vokejof oxen and making a path across the meadows to the foot of the mountain, where I found them ttnder some large hemlock trees. They were all huddled together and the snow was higher than their backs. Be fore noon 1 had them in a good warm barn. In the afternoon I had the young stock well housed. That snow re ceived additions all winter and was very deep. The sleighing lasted until April, and there was no bare ground. There was so much snow it was diffi cult getting around. Old people said there had been no such snow in their life" time, and I know that there has not been so deep a snow since in this state." A Plucky Minister. Bridgeport, December 2. Rev L. R. Streeter of the First M.E.church preach ed a sermon last night in which he said the mayor and public commissioners had not the courage to cope with existing evils, fearing political death, and that the town was a hotbed of vice.

GUILr OILE. AMUSEMENTS. Primrose fc West's Minstrels. Minstrelsy, like bread, depends wholly on how it is mixed and cooked. The same flour and other ingredients are used in the way -back leaden biscuits of an Alabama country settlement as those that go to make up the famous Parker house rolls. The secret all lies in their cook. That Primrose and West are the best of musical cooks the work of last night demonstrated. What they have to offer is of the first quality, selected after years of experience before the most discriminating people the world ever saw, and above all else, they have got fliat other and greater faculty of knowing lust wbeu and where to stop, and not give their patrons "too much of a good thing."
