of h. A. & A. A. Drew for the privilege ot
renting for use as a market the rooms in
the basement of the City hall now occu
pied by the water department, reported in
tavor of gran tint: it.
Alderman McKillip stated that when he
signed the report lie understood that no
member of the Hoard was opposed to it,
but he had since learned that there was a
difference of opinion on the matter. Al
derman Watson satd that under the cir
cumstances he would move to lay the re
port on tho table. Alderman Knglesby
said that as two of the water committee
were absent he would support the motion.
C. W. Urownell, Jr., appeared in behalf
of Messrs. Drew. He thought if the city
could get -;W0 for the rooms which were
now uteri only as a store room the
city would do well to rent them.
There were two ollices rented al
ready in the bn-enient It would be
a good tiling to take thuKiu and put a
roof on the city market so that it could
be u.eri tor a stole loom if necessary.
During the di-eus-iou the fact was de
velop! d that the noith half of the city
market was rented to the lialriwiu .Manu
facturing company lor f a year.
Alderman Johnson thought that it
would be well to wait anil see what the
water committee wanted. Alderm.in Sut
ton thought it was good policy to rent
them the looms, as 500 was a good
rental and they were willing to do their
own repairing. It was his riutv to secure
all the revenue po.-sible for the' city.
Alderman Watson withdrew his mo
tion and on motion of Alderman Knulesby
the matter was referred to the water com
mittee with power to rent the rooms for
4.500, the Messrs. Drew to do their own re
A resolution was passed authorizing the

DibCnHrlun of tlie Plan Among; tlie Stu-(lentH-Tlio
The. matter of a conference committee
bas been a subjact of much discussion
among the students of the University
during the past few days. Most seemed
to feel that a step was being taken in the
right direction, but that the plan as pro
posed had some imperfections. Some
thought that, if the plan is carried for
ward as it now exists, it will be of no
special advantage ; others, that it can not
help but bring about a better feeling be
tween students and faculty; and others
still, that it should be modified in several
particulars before It is adopted. The
matter did not come boforo the students
ns a body until Monday, when a special
college meeting was called to discuss it.
Most of the stndeuts attended this meet
ing, and all took great interest in the dis
cussion of the question. In the first part
of the meeting the motion was made not
to adopt the plan proposed. This
motiou was lost. It was thought by
many if the motion had been to
accept it, that this also would
have been lost, on account of the alleged
imperfections in the plan as it now stands.
The matter was very generally discussed,
and much earnestness manifested by the
speakers; but after n discussion of about
an hour, the meeting adjourned, no deiin
Ite conclusion having been reached. It
seems probable now that it will be left to
the classes, and, if each class decides to
accept the plan, it will be carried forward.
It will not be out of place to say that the
speech of Sho Nemoto, 'Ml, was received
with rounds of applause; such ashas not
been heard at the University for many a
day. Ho is certainly loyal to this country,

In the matter of the head collision on
the Central Vermont railroad between
Northlleld and Montpelier Junction, Feb
ruary 18, 18ST.
This collision caused the wreck of two
locomotives and a baggage car, broke in
the end ot one passenger car, wrecked a
height car and load of hogs killing six
or eight of them, and injured, though not
seriously, llaggago Master Henry C.
Moody. Itoccuredln this way i Passen
ger train No. 5S, bound north from White
River Junction to St. Albans, left North
Held uhalt hour late, but having the right
of the road, did so properly. Through
freight No. .", Wallace W. Ward, engineer,
with 13 cars, was bound south from St.
Albans and arrived at Montpelier Junc
tion lour hours late. It was under orders,
received at ISollou, to meet eimine' Iilng
hani at Middlesex and train No. tatNoith
lleld, which orders were complied with as
to engine Hiiigham. Also, train No. S3
and fit extra, bound south, parsed while
train No. f was at Montpelier Junction
sided on the south line ot the T. there.
As soon as these trains had pusseri, and
while Conductor Faneuf ot train No. 5,
was in tlie telegraph olliceto look for tele
graphic orders, Ills train came upon the
main track, left for Noithlield without
him, and had been gone about 10 minutes
before he discovered its departure. The
result was the head collision, with the
consequences above noted, at the gravel
pit about four miles south of Montpelier
When Engineer Ward, rounding the
curve there, saw the approaching passen
ger train, he reversed his engine, sdut olT
steam and he and his llieman juinoed
from their locomotive in time to save their
lives. Engineer Muzzey of the passenger
train was running ills locomotive without
working steam, being on down grade, and
Instantly applied tlie air brakes, reversed
his engine and jumped therefrom with his
fireman barely In lime to escape death,
lliiggagemaster Moody's escape alive, as
staled, was almost miraculous.
Tnere can be no question as to where
the blame rests in this cii'-e.
1. Engineer Ward is clearly guilty of
negligence and conduct wholly regardless
of duty and rules well understood by him.
He probably did not know that he was
leaving his train conductor at Montpelier
Junction, but he did know that lie had no
light to go forward on the trunk line with
out a written order to that effect from the
train dispatcher at St. Albans He knew
that passenger train No. 5S had the right
of the road and that it had not arrived,
though It was overdue. He testilies be
fore the board to all this and says : "It
was because 1 left Montpelier Junction on
the time of No. 58, and it is due to tlie fact
that I entirely forgot about No. !S." His
honesty in the full confession of his fear
ful error is commendable, but the fomet-
t illness is without excuse. Tlie accident
was me natural result or needless disobe
dience of well understood rules, in respect
to which forgetfulness was the grossest
. Ills lireman and forward brakeman
were in the engine with him. They are
not blameless. They should have remind
ed him ot his dangerous blunder. They
did not do so. The rules of the railroad
admitted to be understood by them, in
culpate them as blameworthy next to the
engineer. Tais accident came about with
fearful danger to the lives and limbs of
many passengers and trainmen, because
men ot tried capacity violated well defined
and understood rules of duty.
The hoard tttkesthis occasion to quote
for the consideration of men having tlie
lives of the travelling public ami their as
sociate employes in ttieir keeping tlie fol
lowing statute law, tlie enforcement of
which is likely to be recommended to the
olllcers of the law for future negligence of
this character on the part of train opera

The Directors Deeiilo to llroct a New
Ward and Other Handing.
At a meeting of the directors of the Mary
Fletcher hospital Monday afternoon it
was decided to build a new ward, an oper
ating room and an isolated hut, and to
begin operations immediately. Tlie ward
will be built at tlie southeast comer of the
hospital, and will be about the same size
nstlie pru.-ent ward at the south west cor
ner, to which it shall be parallel witli
some distance between them. It will be
of brick and will accommodate 12 beds,
it will bo the female ward, while the ohl
one which hits 10 beds will be the male
ward. lietweeu the two wards and con
nected with tlie hospital will be
erected a small operating room to
lie used when tho amphitheatre is
not occupied for clinics, which
will obviate some of tlie unpleasant lea
t u res of the present arrangement. Now
when there are no clinics the operating is
fre quently done in tho ward to the detri
ment of other patients. Occasionally a con
tagious disease is developed among the pa
tients and to provide for this emergency a
small structure will be built some dis
tance to tlie rear of tho hospital. The
ward and operating room will bo of brick
and it is expected that the total outlay
will bo about S10.000.
A Warning from the Massachusetts Cnttlo
To tho I'.ditor of tho Tree Press ;
As a matter of general interest to the
farmers and cattle dealers of Vermont I
send you the following extract from a
private letter of March 3d, from A. W.
Cheever, secretary of tho Massachusetts
cattle commission : "Wo have had a
busy time of it for a few days huntiug
for dangerous cattle, and dealers and
farmers are put to much inconvenience,
but we see no better way than to try to
keep cattle where they are till we can see
what we have to contend with. Don't
send any cattle to our mnrkets just yet
from your State, it is doubtful if there
will bo another 'store cattle market for
some weeks,' Considering the nearness
of the disease, and tlie former free move
ment of cattlo between the State, I would
suggest the propriety of the appointment
by the governor of tho commission for
our State, which the law empowers hlni
to do, which could cooperate with tlio
Massachusetts commission, and lie ready
to meet without delay any trouble which
may arise in our own State, from this or
any other source of contagion,

Signal Service Crippled Hiring to tlio Pall,
lire of tlio Dellcloiiey Hill.
Wasihsmton, March 7. The signal ser
vice is likely to be sadly pinched by the
failure of the general deficiency appropri.
atlon bill. The deficiency estimates for
t Ills service aggregated f 3.1,70, a largo part
of tlie total being estimated for transpor
tation and mileage. Tho estimate for
transportation of men and baggage, etc.,
was a small item, amounting to but fVi.V
hut the failure of Congress to appropriate
that sum will cause muchembariassnieiit,
for according to the statement of the chief
signal olllcer It is now impossible t move
a man, even to discharge or re-enlist him,
or to replace those who are dead or danger
otisly 111. The term of service of a num
ber of the men has expired, but they must
be retained in the corps trom lack of
money to send them to their homes. Tlie
most serious consequence ot tlie failure of
the bill, perhaps, will be tho discon
tinuance of storm warnings, cold
waves, etc., at a number of important
points, owing to the failure of the Item
apptoprlallng $18,000 for telegraphing and
reporting these warnings. So nearly ex
hausted is tlie sum now available for this
purpose that a heavy cut must be made in
tlie service at a very early day.

Death of Col. A. 11. Jeuett.
St. JoilxsiiiniY, March 7. News was
received here to-day of the death of Col.
A. U. Jewettof this place at Jacksonville,
Florida, yesterday. Col. Jewett came to
this town about 1S74 as the superintendent
of the St. Johnsbury and Montpelier rail
road. In 1877 the road went into the hands
of receivers, of whom Jewett was one,
and ho continued in that capacity until
the aiTairs of the road were settled up in
1SS0, when it took the name of the St.
Johnsbury and Lake Champlain road and
Jewett was its superintendent until after
it was leased to the Boston and howell
railroad, retiring from ollice last year. At
the time of his death he was the vice-pre.-i
dent ot the road. Col. Jewett was largely
instrumental in building the Lamoille
Valley road through to Swauton, a task
with the opposition it ere mntered of no
small magnitude. Col. Jewett served in the
army during the rebellion and command
ed a Vermont regiment a portion of the
time; He was about 00 years old and
leaves a widow.
