A wiUTEitin the Boston HeraUl la reaponslble

In thelr lista, and about twenty-five hundred
lists were made by tho nssessors. Thla ia the
worst record of whlch we have learned yet.
Tiik Caledontan puts thla tlcket into the fleld:
For governor, SamuelE. Pingree of Hartford;
for lleutenant governor, S. M. Dorr of Rutlnnd;
for secretary of state, D M. Camp of New

1t is a poor week when the North Star does
not furnlah ita readers wlth at least one fllght
of eloqaence over sotne local matter. Thla
time it is a fire, and our Danville contemporary
BOllloquizea thua: " We read of brave men in
anclent daya, but none more so than thoae who
foaght the fHmes till thelr faces and necka
were bllstered, and ln raany inatances thelr

Tiie Boston Ilerald haa the temerity to refer
to our esteemed contemporary aa "the rural
Argus" and as "n newsp.tper pub'.ished in
the unpavcd districta tryiag to keep up wlth
the procession," wbich " really wantR all the
information it can get from the Ieadlng orgnns
of ita party." Thls ia rather a severe snubbing
for " the one independent paper of Vermont"
whlch delights to refer to the metropolitan
press as " our esteemed contomporaries."
Two passengera ln the branch train at Mont
pelier Junction, Monday mornlng, had en
grossed the attention ,o( a car full of fel!ow
travelera ln a watm theological dlscusslon,
while the train was awxlting the nrrlval of the
local passenger going north. One wbb appar
ently a clergyman, the other a layman of sotne
antagonlstlc bellef. At a moment when there
was a auggestion of " flre and brimatone" ln
"the theologlc war," Conductor Bailey appeared
nt the door and settled the point directly at
issue by announclng, ln atontorian tones,
"Passengers going north, change cars!
Thla innocent intorpolation was exceedingly
appropot and convulaed the llateners wlth
laughter. Thoso" going north" obeyed the
Bummons wlth unwonted alacrlty and the
others took shelter in Montpelier.
Our eateemed contemporary, the Argus and
Patrtot, was voclferously shoutlng in Decem
ber about " the chlefa of the rlng whlch runs
the republican party in thls Btate." Tiik
Watciiman urged the Argus In the most per-
anasive terms lt could employ to do Ita full
"duty torepublicans" andexpose thia "ring"
and Ita " chlefa." The Argus Suddenly lost ita
volce. For weeks and moutba it has been un
able to artlculate the word "rlng" and ita
" republican patrons " have gadly mlsaed the
volee of their " gulde, phllosopher and f riend."
Last week the lost volce waa found long onough
to lndlvlduallze tbe ring ln incoherent accents
aa " ex-Governor J. Gregory Smith and those
assoclated wlth hlm," and to Bay that it
"would be glad to have those gentlemen
' gmaBhed ' polltlcally," for the beneflt the de
mocracy would derivo from the "smashlng."
Aa usnal tbe Argus blundera while it essays to
toady. Tho"rlng" and Ita" chlefa" have been
much moro correctly deserlbed by TiieWatcii-
man. Our contemporary opene ita long pent-
up moum oniy 10 put ita loot ln lt.

she added. Ile Btared and Btared, nnd pres

tnrnedqulckly: " What'B the matter?" "Why,
yon've gone and left ont tbe trumpet, and the

The flrst idea was to repreaent the historio

hehemraed and hawed; she nrglng hlm wlth

fool as to go Into a ilghtwlthhis best clothea

admiror horo Bums up the wbole of thls matter
by saying that ho ls not n gushing man. He
takes no part ln local polltlcs, andjnever ap-
proaches the rolo of a boss. Indeed, the polltl

In ita Issue of March Cth tho Argus charged
Tnit Watciiman with publlshlng aa corres-
pondenco what waa wrlttcn in its own ofllco
by one of lts edltora, "becauao it dld not dare
to sny such thlngs edltorlally." It character
ized this performanco as a dodge whlch long
ago " was abandonod because lt had become
lly-blown and a stench ln the pabllc nostrlls,"
and expressed a great deal of vlrtuous snrprlse
that The Watciiman should expect to thus
Impose on tho publlc. It was entlrely in ac
cord wlth the dlslnterestedneaa of our nelgh
borthat lt should thua rush Into the breach
nnd provent the publlc from so great a decep-
tion, and lt ia nlso another instance of its
characterlstic conslstency that it haa tried the
very trlclc whlch 11 falsely charged npon thls
paper. Tho Argus of last week contalned n two
column letter whlch was tbe product of the Bame
braln whose eff uslons have made its edltorlal
columns ridlculous, and the paper a laugblng
stock, for the last alx montba. Tho only dls-

The flrst annnal conventlon of the Rutland
Muslcal Featival Associatlon, and the most
