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 SISTER MARY ISABELLA. One of lite Teachers of Xolre Dame Trausfdrretl to TJrockvllle, Ontario. Sister Mary Isabella of the Congregation of Noire Dame has been removed to Brock ville, Ontario. She will be replaced by Sister Mary Agnes of the Angels of Mon treal. Sister Mary Isabella has labored here for tbe past three years. She is a lipe scholar and poaesses a happy manner of imparting htr knowlegde to others. She taught the eighth grade class with re markable success and her pupils and others who bad tbe pleasure of her ac quaintance will regret to hear of her de parture. AGAINST C0UGHLAN.

It does not follow necessarily that a play successful in New York and London will succeed outude of these cities, but "The Girl I Left Behind Me" bas been suecesafnl, wherever staged throughout the country and the indications are that it will do likewise when it is staged at Jacques on Monday night. It is a drama of life on the frontier, but aside from the fact that the background is rough it is described in every respect ai a polished piece. That is to say its dialogue is terse and direct, its actions rapid and eulmina tive, and its olimaxes strocger act by act. "The Bicycle Girl." Mi ts McHenry threw into htr perform ance spirit, dash and vivacity that mark all her stage work. John Webster, Charles P.

Miss Delia Jaekson coming in for the most applause on that seore Hartford Oonrant. At tbe pare hewss Tuesday evening. FATHER MULCAHY Will Probably Leave Waterbury, Al. 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 Sunday afternoons 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 oonvent. 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. DROWNED IN THE RIVER. The Sad Fate That Befell a Meriden Boy Near Sonthlngton. John O. Ives, a 12 year old boy and son of the late John O.

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 and costs STREETS AND SEWERS. Many Matter Decided I'pon at the Outing Yesterday Afternoon.

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. 30,000 Stamp Destroyed. New Haven, Aug 31.
