artists, The A Mint will reproduce examples ot
the best foreign masters, selected with a Mew

Remember Haker was born nt Woodbury,
In 1740. Of his childhood and
youth the wilier can pay nothing, except
that he had a good education ns is evinced
bv the documents now in existence that
were his production hail learned survey
ing had served as an nppientiec and
learned the joiners' trade ns well as that of
millwright showing nn active, diligent
nnd persevering childhood. In early man
hood, nt the ngo of eighteen, he Is lighting
for his country, being a soldier hi the ex
pedition against Canada. He was In that
division of the nrmv commanded by (ten
Abcicmmbie which met with its terrible
repulse under the walls of Foi tress Ticon
dciog.t and was obliged to retreat to Fort
Edward. 'The next year under the victor!
oils Gen. Amlicist he was In that trium
pliant conquest that embraced tho capture
of Ticondetoga, Crown Point, St. Johns
and the surrender of .Montreal, and culm!
natcd, (though by another division of the
nrmv) in the surrender of Quebec
fter the carnage upon the heights
of Ahiaham, wheie the. gallant volfc
and the brave Montcalm each at
the head of their tcspective nt ink's
gave their lives to their countiy. After
the expedition against Canada he returned
to his home in Woodbury, Conn., and was
,.,,r!,.,l mi in after. In the veil tiin lie
...i i ib,. ew Hampshire grants:
locating In the town of Ailmgion. A few
families had moved into this town the year
before. From this time to the day of his
death lie became an earnest p.iiti..tn among
the Gicen Mountain Hoys for the tights of
tliu New Hainp-liiie grants, and we venture
the nsscition that Vermont has no hero
not even its tutelar saint Ethan, lint whose
fume is dimmed by the lustre of the eleven
veals service anil uie mat tins ncio gave
to our State.
It will be noticed here that his advent
into the slate antedates that of Ethan Allen
bv five years, of Ira Allen by eight years
and otheis of llic Allen family by still
mine tunc, lie -vas own cousin id uie
Allen nnd perhaps Ids inlhicncc drew them
here. As we said linker and family con
listing of Ids wife and two sons settled in
Arlington in 1701. Ho soon alter built the
llrst grist mill ever built in that town, and
upon the oig.ini.atlon of that town in 1708
he became Its first town clerk, lie was
one of Hie ptoprietors of the township of
P.v.vlct, and dining the year of 170S lie tc
moved to that town and made his pitch in
the tun llivvcst part of the town and built
the llrst gristmill ever erected in that town
on lands now owned by George Toby,

about lids time between the Inhabitants of

iiutiirily defending .Install Carpenter and
employing tlio eminent Iugersoll, relying
on Hie justice of ids cause, confident of
success. Haker in the early days of said
mouth surveyed tho township of Wallln
foul. It is believed that H.ikcr surveyed
most of the townships In the south part of
Rutland county nnd the north part of Hen
iihigton county. "In October. 1771, Ethan
Allen, Remember Raker and Robeit
Coclnan with six otheis, Inhabitants of

bo seen that llicso "intruders" were Raker's
neliihboiB. and it follows us a matter of
coiiicctuio that Haker Instigated these pio
cccdings. About this limo ho removed his
family back to Arlington, piobably for

On March the 2lst, 1772, bcfoio day
light, being Sunday morning, the 'infa

ncters being Instigated by tho liopo of the
levvard and tlio dcslro of notoriety, iu tlio
most cowardly manner broko Into Itakci
houso for tho purpose of his capture,
Haker was awakened by tho breaking open
of ids door and tho entrance of a number of
men armed with swords and pistols. Tho
Intruders rushed upon him with savago
fury wounding hint by n cut ncrosn the
head nnd nlso on the aim wlthaswoid.
Ills wile too was baibuously wounded by
a sword cut acioss thu hc.ul and neck, and
ono of his boys also, then about twelve
years old. Haker being ovcipowcicd and
bound was thrown Into n sleigh and con-
vcyed off with the greatest speed lowaids

nlnglon, ten slalvvalt men mounted In
haste nud puisucd as for life. Yengeame
was their motto, as they understood that
their beloved leader was mm tally wounded
and was being conveyed lo Albany m a
living condition, in n mile sleigh, welter
ing hi his own blood. Theicwiiid for Ids
apprehension being for ''dead or
live," It Is icndlly seen how with cicclncal
impetus these men were fired to strike the
inhuman monsters. After a headlong race
of tidily miles and just ns the pally now
swollen to fifty men Unit guarded the
sleigh containing the nearly exhausted
Haker wero ubout to cross the Hudson
liver, the leu daring pursuers appeared in
sight. The cowardly guards lied to the
woods. H.ikcr was iccaptuicd, lcficshed
and c.ired for, and iclurned to his ovct-
H.ikcr about lliii time signed the counter
proclamation, which was published In the
journals of the day, offering in connection
witli Ethan Allen ami the olliers wno wcie
proscribed by Gov. Tryon a icwaid of live
pounds for tlio delivery of John Taber
Kemp to any officer of the Green Mountain
Huys. Tills man Kemp was Uie piinclpal
claimant In the biiit before the Albany
courts which Ethan Allen had so generously
yet, unsuccessfully defended. As Allen
was preparing to leave Albany Kemp Hied
to persuade or biibe him to use Ids in
lltiencc to Induce the Inhaliltaiils of the
Now Hampshire grants to give up their
claims, saying that their c.iu-e was evi
dently hopeless and adding slyly, "lou
can tell them that light even does not al
ways picvail where might i luought iu
question." Allen had replied fcciitcntiony,
'Tho Gods of tho valll 's are not the Guls
of the hills." Kcmpa-kcd an explanation
nnd Allen told him, If lie would accompuiy
him to Rciiniiigton It should be made clear
to him. As Kemp did not come to licniiing
ton tho explanation has never been given.
The saying was to Kemp an unsolved
riddle. Yet It troubled him and Ids asso
ciate sorely. Gov. Tryon could give no
explanation, but he announced that lie
should protect the interest of New York,
and he announced also, bombastically Unit
he would drive their "oppo.-crs into the
Green -Mountains." The people of the
rants now held a convention and resolved
that, as they could obtain no ju-tice by
vv, that they would organize anil ic-Miiy
force tho pietensloin of New Yoik.
This organization was made by cbosing
