THE LICENSE VOTE.
UlMler the New Lair MUtakes In Voting
Will Be Easily Made.
Tbe legislature has made a radical change
in the manner of voting on the license
question. Every voter must use two en
velopes, one for the ballot on the license
question And tbe other for the ballot for
the town officers. The envelopes for the
license ballot must be uniform in size and
color and the color must correspond wit'i
the color of the ballots. The face of the
envelopes must bear the word "License"
and tbe back the words, "Official Enve
lope." The duties of tbe tenders of the
envelope booth Bhall be the same in regard
to the license evelopes as the law now im
poses, or may impose, upon them in regard
to tbe official envelopes for town officers.
The license ballots will be different from
those heretofore used. They must bear
on the face the words "Lioense, Yes," if
you chose to vote the affirmative. The
negative ballots vill read "License, No."
The backs must marked "Official Ballot" as
before. Tbe new law is certain to caase
much confusion, and many ballots will be
cast that cannot be counted because they
have been put in the wrong box, or be
cause the wrong envelope was used. Such
mistakes are unavoidable in the nature of
things, and it will be well for every voter
to be on bis guard

among other things that Terronce Cough

which he carried on bone boiling and fat
boiling, and upon which premises be suf

detrimental to the public health,
I find after a full hearing of the petitioners

in which said business has been carried
on is dangerous to tbe public health; that
the keeping of dead and decaying animal

though. The Official Announcement
Has Noi Been Made.
No official announcement ' has yet been
made as to who will succeed the late Very
Rev James Hughes as pastor ot St Pat
rick's churoh in Hartford. Waterbury
people are reluctant to believe that Vicar
General Mnloaby will be the choice of
Bishop Tierney, although there is not
much doubt that he will be requested
by Bishop Tierney to go to Hartford and
that he will be succeeded here by Rev
Father Slocum of Norwalk.
Vicar General John A. Mulcahy was born
in Ireland and came to this oountry when
quite a young' man and soon afterward
took a course of studies at Britton & Strat
um's sohool, Hartford, where he was
known as a diligent, studious pupil, pos
sessing more than ordinary intellectual
talent. After finishing at this school he
entered St Charles oollege, Ellioott, Md.,
remaining there six years, when he went
to St Joseph's seminary, Troy, N. Y, where
he studied theology and philosophy and was
there ordained to the priesthood on May
7. 1873, by the Right Rev Bishop Mo
Nierney. His first appointment was assistant to
the Rev Father Lynch, then paBtor of the
Immaculate Conception church, tbis city.
It was while acting as curate in this city
that Father Muloaby laid the foundation of
the love and veneration with whioh he has
since been regarded by the people of this
oommunity. There were but few Cathclio
societies in Waterbury at that time, but
the zealous priest made the most of. the op
portunities at his disposal to come in con
tact with the youth of the parish, .and many
of our citizens can well remember the elo
quent and interesting discourses delivered
by Father Mulcahy before tbe members of
the Christian Doctrine society in the base
ment of the old East Main' street school
when all the literary inclined yonng men
of the parish were wont to congregate on
When the Rev Father Lynch was trans
ferred to St Patriok's parish. New Haven,
Father Mulcahy acoompanied him. There
he labored until February 17, 1877, when
he was appointed pastor at East Hartford
This mission then included Glastonbury,
Wethersfield and Rocky Hill. Father Mul
caby's work at East Hartford is eloquent
evidence of his zeal and energy. He
erected the parish church and St Augus
tine's at Glastonbury, liquidated the debt
on the church lot at Wethersfield and col
lected funds for the erection of a church
at Rocky Hill
In November, 1887, Father Mulcahy was
transferred to Thompsonville, which mis
sion then included Hazardville and Broad
Brook. For three years he labored in this
portion of tbe diocese, during which time
new sites in Broad Brook and Hazardville
were purchased, upon which he
erected substantial churches. His
success in Thompsonville is attested
by the fact that the parish indebtedness
was reduoed $9,000 duiing bis pastorate
and the lot purchased on which the new
church now stands.
On November 1, 1881, we find Father
Mulcahy in charge of the Sacred Heart
parish. New Haven, and during his four
years' labors in that city tbe indebtedness
was reduced $22,000, and sufficient proper
ty was secured for sites for the school and
In January, 188G, Father Mulcahy ee
snmed charge of the Immaculate Concep
tion parish in this city. The year follow
ing he was made a permanent reotor and
the same earnestness and zeal which had
characterized his labors in other places
has been manifested here. The need of a
parochial school was at once apparent and
he immediately commenced the erection
of St Mary's school, which was opened in
1888, having seating accommodations for
seven hundred pupils St Mary's convent,
adjoining the school on Cole street; St Pat
rick's hall on East Main street; the pur
chase of a strip of land on Division stne'.
as a site for a church at some future day;
tbe establishment of a library to which
he donated several years' salary;
tbe opening of Calvary cemetery on the
Cheshire road; the organization of a branch
of the St Vincent de Paul society to look
after the wants of the poor of the parish,
and various other works which attest the
energy of Father Mulcahy are the products
of'his labor in the parish.
Father Muloaby took an interest in edu
cational matters and is conceded to te one
of the ripest scholars and most profound
thinkers in the community. He was a
member of the town school board from
1874 to 1876. In 1887 he was elictel a
member of the board of education and has
served with distinction since, with the ex
ception cf the term of 1889 and 1890 when
be was succeeded by tbe Rev Hugh Treanor
of the Sacred Heart church. In 1891 he
was elected president of the board and it
has been generally admitted that under
his ruling the meetings of tbe board bave
been c .i. ducted in a most impartial man
ner and its deliberation productive ot the
best possible results for the pupils of tbe
public schools. For years Father Mulcahy
has been telling the people of Waterbury
of the need of additional High school fail
ities. From the platform and through
the press in season and ont be kept the idea
constantly before the people and
the magnificent structure which the tax
payers have voted to erect on East Main
btreet may truly be said to be the outcome
of his agitation.
' Father Mulcahy put himself in touch
with the different elements in
tbe city It wai no'.bing nnuual
to bear of him talking on "A Visit to
the Eternal City,' before the pupils of the
convent or Notre Dame on Monday even
ing, treating the members of the Catholio
Literary association to a discourse on
"Primeval Man" the following night, act
ing as chairman of the board of education
on another afternoon, giving a short talk
on "Charity" to the members of the St
incent de Paul society on other occasions.
and not uofrequently he could be found
discussing some society problem at a
meeting of the A. O. H of whioh order he
is chaplain, as he is also of the Catholic
Literary association. In all these places
his discourses were marked by oaution and
it has been said of bim that be bas never
been known to utter an in tempt rate or
indesoreet sentence in his life.

WITNESS WAS ABSENT
Dr Axtelle la tn Woodmont and the
Cello Harder Case Could Not Be
Tried Patrick Mooney Will Recover
and Palne's Bonds Are Reduced.
It was expected that there would be a
long session of the city court this morn
ing, as the trial of Joseph Collo for mur
der was set down. Owing to the large
number of witnesses present court was
held in the district court room. The ses
sion was short, however, and Medioal Ex
aminer Axtelle was the cause of it. Dr
Axtelle went to Woodmont Wednesday
and Waterbury has not seen him since.
He was expected to be present this morn
ing, as he was a prinoipal witness in the
case. Prosecuting Attorney Webster did
not oare to prejudioe his oase by having
the witnesses present. Judge Cowell said
Saturday was the best day for all, and he
would take a reoeas to see if Dr Axtelle
would arrive on the 9:33 train. He had
not arrived when court re-opened. Judge
Root, who appears for Collo, said that he
was positive that the trial would take all
day. From what he knew of the case the
defense would be a very determined cne.
By mutual agreement tbe case was ad
journed until Tuesday. Tbe witnesses on
each side were called and so netifltd
Dr Hayes testified that he had seen
Patrick Mooney to-day and that he con
tinued to improve. The lung had partly
oleared up, but Mooney was not yet able to
sit up. He was gaining strength rapidly.
By mutual agreement the oase was adjourn
ed until Wednesday and the bonds were
reduced to $2,000. Attorney Carmody,
who appeared for Edward Paine, charged
with the assault on Mooney, moved that
the witnesses for the defense be put on
the state's subpoena as tbe defendant was
very poor. It was so ordered by the court.
John Donovan surrendered himself at
headquarters last night. A warrant has
been out for his arrest since June 25 when
he was implicated in an assault with James
Dtlaney on Frank Stapleton in the latter's
saloon on North Main street. After tbe
assault Donovan skipped away and Delaney
was arrested. In tbe course of the trial
Stapleton tried to shield Delaney and was
arrested for perjury. Delaney when put
on the stand and examined said that Staple
ton was the aggressor. At once two
complaints were got out for Stapleton for
assault and perjury. He was heavily fined
and also received a jail sentenoe and
Delaney was also fined. Appeals were
taken in all cases. This morning Prosecut
ing Att irney Webster said there was no use
of putting in evidence in the oase, that
Judge Cowell was familiar with it. Dono
van was fined $10 and paid.
Charles Miller, for drunkenness, got $1

Pasquale De Rienzo keeps a barber shoo
at 634 Bank street. Yesterday afternoon
Aurello Oroiulo, the barber employed
there, was in the shop, when another Ital
Han, whose name they said was Nioola Bo-
camazza, came in. Tbe latter began fool
ing with Orciulo, and the latter told him
to stop as bis employer would soon be in.
The fooling led to a quarrel and Booamaz-
za went outside and returned with a brick,
with whioh he assaulted Oroiulo, cutting
two deep gashes over his left eye and
temple. Dr J. De Liguori dressed tbe
wounds. The Italian who made the as
sault escaped. This morning in the court
room as Sergeant Dodds oast his eyes over
the spectators he spied his man, impatient
to hear the trial of one ot his countrymen.
He was arrested and in the station gave tbe
name of James Bockles.

Stray Levet Front a Reporter's Note
Pebhafs the strangest thing that has
ever oome to the notioe of a Democbat re
porter was a peculiar occurrence which
took place during the week. There re
sides in tbe city a lady of education and
refinement, who is eccentric in many ways.
She bas several peculiar hobbies, one in
particular being the love of the feline
species. Recently a favorite cat whioh
bad attained tbe age of seven years and
six months, succumbed io the ravages of
pneumonia. The lady mourned for her
pet and at once set about making arrange
ments to secure asuperb casket. It was
made of copper, tbe interior beautifully
decorated. The cat was laid on a silken
pillow. The copper lid was then soldered
on, the workman who did the act beicg
instructed not to turn the coffin on its
side, for fear the poor dead pussy's body
would be disturbed. The casket was de
posited in a strong wooden box f.nd taken
away by the sorrowing owner. It is safe
to Bay no other Waterbury cat ever re
ceived such homage before or after death.
