ENGINEER WELD'S DISCLAIMER.
Causes Which Led to the Overflow
Of Little Brook.
City Engineer Weld disclaims the re
sponsibility for the recent overflow of
Little brook and makes the toiiowing
"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
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.
Unusually Busy Session Before
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

up and this morning was given 30 days
Joseph Lachance entered the rink

kin the Waterbury polo club's goal ten
der, who was scting as door keeper and
general superintendent, attempted to
eject him from the building. 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

BtJRNHAM STREET CROSSING.
A Great Mistake Will lie Maao un
less Something Is Done and at
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
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
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,
"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
FIFTY" VEARS AGO.
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."

The true conception of a Business , Suit demands tkat it
shall be of a quality of goods that ' will prove eervicaWe ;
that the pattern shall be something that is ., suitable for one's
business; the fit be comfortftble, and the 'price be low enough
for a man not to feel afraid of soiling them.. We aim to tatisfj
each of these requirements $10, $12 and $15 are the' popular
prices for Business Suits for the average man, though" some
want even bettrr, which we have at $1G, $18 and $20. . . ..
We have them in all grades, cut in sacks and frocks, regular
sizes, stout sizes and slim sizes, made from Cheviots, Tneds
Cassimeres and Worsteds. '
Our $18 Black Cheviot Suit has been the most popular suit
with us this season. .,. While you can buy Black, .(viots for
$12 or $15, tiicy are not to be compared to our $18 suit any
more than a $10 suit should be with a $25 suit.
Good clothing properly worn imparts to the plainest looking
man an attractiveness which is irresistible.
D RESS SU ITS!
When a man puts on a Dress Suit he wants to look and feel
his best. He cannot do this in a suit of indifferent style, in
ferior quality or ill-fitting. Our Dress Suits are made in the
best styles, are bound to give satisfaction in the wear as well as
ease to the wearer. $15, $1S and $2Q buys a .good Dress Suit
regular, stout and slim sizes.

charge $38, $45 and $50 for, with the chances that you don't
get as good a fit as we can give.
