SI/KS FOH MISSIES AN» WOMEN Publication Found Here Indicates That AH Were Not United Behind That War Andrew Lagownlk 'of 22 Hotchkiss street .while doing some work recently on the walls of his new home''hero, discovered a part of a copy of the "New York Press" ot Monday, May 2, 1898. The war with Spain then was underway and the pros and cons on the situation indicated that many persons were not too completely behind that venture. The pastor of one New York church in his Sunday sermon in- dicatuC that the conflict was a holy war and that Spain must be made to puy for her sins. Another clergyman stilted that if the U. S. had been prepared, the war with,Spain never woufd have come about, and declared that love of country was a little late. This man of God stated that SI,000.000 spout previously would have saved $5,000.000, but declared that he was in favor of making Spain pay for the entire cost of the war. He also indicated that America should have a standing Army of 75,000 men trained nnd equipped and also revealed that when a call for 125.000 troops was given, 800,000 men volunteered. Another speaker of the 'Sunday previous to May 2 stated that war was never glorious, in fuel the conflict between the U. S. and Spain was ridiculous and surely something that could be avoided through diplomatic co-operation when two great nations sat down to settle their differences over a conference table. This writer de! claicd that he made this statement ( even in the face of Spain's inter' national poor record, the "Maine" disaster and every other fact brought to bear to show that the smaller nation was at fault. Another item showed that a Socialist o:Iitor in Fort Scott, Kansas was forced to flee for his life from 1 a mob that came after him with a rope, following the printing of an article in which he referred to the American flag as a piece of painted rag tied to a. stick. He was criticizing the worship of i the flag above the regard for fcl- ' ;ow cruaturcs. Another item revealed that the United States was spending $2.1,- fiOOOOO as the initial down payment on a navy, to be outranked in the .world only by those of Great Britain and France. Plans called -for 3u modern naval craft, including ''S swift torpedo boats, half of which would be ready within three months. The new battleships that were o,-dcrcd would be of approximately 11,000 tons, and capable of 16 knots per hour, with at least two 13-inch rifles among its arms, A number of monitors also were or- Fivc acres of land near central fslip, Long Island wore advertised for S500 down and $5.00 a month, and a house in Wcstcheslor of nine rooms and all improvements could he purchased for S3.000 with ^only S300 cash down payment. .Two- familv houses could be bought in Brooklyn for only J2.000 and rents ill that section were as low as $7.00 a month. Even 'Hi years ago good old Lydia Pinkham's was still saving the womankind of Amcriia, a largo advertisement in the paper revealed. Another advertiser there who still maintains the same style as -10 years ago is the New York firm of Rogers, Pcet and Co. whose single column cartoon style is familiar to all who read New York papers.

State Police Maintain Silence (Continued from Pago 1) ROSE SHOP 87 South Main St, — Waterbury the conditions arc making the. Corn theater A place unsafe for public assembly, A great deal of comment was heard today at the manner in which the state policc banned the theater. The decree was delivered between shows at the Gem theater. with patrons in the theater. The. box otllce was immediately closed and the show continued only until, ill patrons had seen a full show. Some residents felt that more considor.-ition might have been shown in the closing for surely no unsafe condition had come about in a matter of minutes, and Commissioner Rickey's letter must have been written some lime he- fore it was delivered here. Warden Brophy stated today that he is definitely interested in the auditorium as a place of public assembly for under the state policc ban. the theater section'cannot be used for any sort of a public meet- Naugatuck now has in operation on'y one theater, the Alcazar on Main street, in which Mr. Pasho also has an interest. i Whatever changes arc advocat: ed in the Gem theater by the state policc will llrst have to be presented to the welfare board which has i jurisdiction over the building. After that board has passed on the matter, it will be referred to the board of warden and burgesses, which no doubt will go along with the recommendations of the minor board. If the changes sought by the state police arc very ' extensive, there is a possibility, it was indicated today, that the theater sec- ion of the town hall may be idle as Former Secret Service Man Had Served 5 Presidents New York, Aug. 1—(U P)—The death yesterday of the former While House secret service chict ,i;cciills several notable events In hiw career.

The auditors also point out that no action was taken the past year on the bonding- of officials and employes not already covered. They point out that the Warden of the borough is not bonded and state that while it is not required that they would like to have it done. It is also indicated that the chief of police and several of the bailiffs are not covered although this is required by a special act of April 10. 1917.
