Montpeller, Sept. 2fi. J, W. Tltcomb,
commissioner of game and fisheries, has
bad a complete levlslon of the fish and
game laws of the State made In accord
ance with the most advanced Ideas In
regard to such legislation, and the revision
has only been made after full cor
respondence with States that have recent
ly revised their llsh and game laws or
enacted new laws.
This revision will take the form of a
bill, to be substituted for the present
chapter on that subject, and will be
ready for presentation to the committee
when the Legislature meets.
The present chapter relating to llsh and
game Is a piece of patchwork, of con
tradictory or confusing enactments, so
that there are few men in the State
who really understand what the provi
sions of the Vermont statutes are. It Is
hoped that llils complete revision may
have such careful consideration, anil may
be so modllled to meet tho needs or
deslu-H ol various sections, that It will be
free from amendment for some years

Opposition Goes to Pieces on
Fourth Ballot at Saratoga
WADSWORTH RUNNING MATE
Republican Nominees Pledge
Themselves to Make a Stir
ring Campaign, One "with
Saratoga, N. Y Sept. 27. Tho repub
licans of New York chose as their can
didate for governor to-day the man
whoso chief appeal was hH freedom from
factional bias und from domination by
any of tho leaders that have controlled
the party at previous conventions. Job
F. Hedges, a natlvo of Livingston
county and a Now York city attorney,
M years old, was placed at the head of
tho ticket after three days of delibera
tion that concluded with a series of bal
lots on the floor of the convention hall
For lieutenant-governor, the delegates
nominated Jnmes W. Wadsworth, Jr., of
Genesco, former speaker of tho Assembly
anc the son of an ex-congressman. Mr.
Wndsworth's nomination created scaice
ly less enthusiasm than the success of
the candidate for governor. Roth had
announced themselves as candidates for
governor early In tho campaign nnd
when th convention met this morning
the nomination was conceded to He be
tween them. Mr. Wadsworth Is only 37
and one ot the youngest men that ever
aspired to the governorship of the Em
Moth nominees have reputations as
speakers and both have pledged them
selves to make a stirring campaign, as
Mr. Hedges expressed It, one "with
HEDGES LED ALL THE WAY.
For the first time 111 many years
the delegates at a New York State
republican convention found them
selves without a prearranged slate
and settled their problems by the bal
lot test alone. Mr. Hedges on the
first ballot led a field of candidates.
The second ballot showed marked
Hedges gains, but It was the third
that g.ive the first hint of what was
Former Congressman Wllllnm S. Ren
net, who had run third in the ballot
ing, started the stampede when he
took the floor and announced: "Ry the
courtesy of tho fourth New York dis
trict I enst its vote for Mr. Hedges."
Since this district had been ono of
those that sided with Rennet, this dec
laration. In the opinion of the dele
gates, amounted practically to a with
drawal of Rennet In his rivnl's favor.
Immediately district leaders In Kings
nnd from up-State followed Mr. Hen-
The result of the third ballot was
never announced and the nomination
was made unanimous upon tho motion
of Judge Win. Carter, who placed Mr.
Wadsworth In nomination.
Another dramatic moment came when
nominations for lieutenant-governor were
called and Speaker Merrltt ot the As
sembly stepped to the platform. Few In
the hall guessed his purpose and thero
was an outburst of relief and approval
when he placed In nomination Mr. Wads
worth. The delegates knew, without be
ing tol.l, that tho defeated candidate
stood ready to accept tho minor nomi
nation. WADSWORTH BY ACCLAMATION.
Although previously the Held had been
full of aspirants for second place on tho
ticket, not one of them was proposed
and Wadsworth was nominated by ac
The demand that District Attorney
Whitman of New York become a candl
dat c.piesscd Itself at the convention
despite Mr. Whitman's efforts to prevent
It. Frederick C. Tanner of New York,
who has been the district attorney's per
sonal representative here, exhibited this
morning a telegram from Mr. Whitman
which read :
"Plente e'o not permit my name to go
before the convention under any circum
stances." For this reason Mr. Whitman
was not proposed; nevertheless 41 dele
gates eled for him on tho second bal
lot. The ticket was maJe up ut a session
that lasted more than seven hours with
out a recess. After the Hist two places
were tilled the other cnndldutes were
selected by hasty Informal conferences on
the convention Moor; but In several In
stances mure balloting was required to
decide among those placed before the
convention for the minor ottlces. The dele
gates refused all appeals for a recess and
stuck to their task until all business was
finished. Judging from the shouts that
followed the announcement of Mr.
Hedges's nomination and that which
greeted him when he took the platform
for a brief speech, the delegates wero
well Mitlsllcd with their selection. The
Hedges demonstration wns equalled by
tho applause for Mr, Wadsworth when he
accepted the nomination for lieutenant
governor nnd pledged himself to work
for the success of tho ticket,
REST OF THE TICKET.
The rest of the ticket follows: For attorney-general,
Meier Slelnbrlnk of Kings;
comptroller, Wm. D. Cunningham of
Ulster; State engineer, Frank M. Wil
liams of Orange,
Mr. Hedges's supporters predicted that
he would have nearly 40) votes on tho
first ballot and their prophesy was ful
filled. They attributed his victory to-night
largely to the fact that from his Ions
residence anil party service In New York
city he commanded a large majority of
the delegates from New York county
while the fact that he was born "up
State" nnd his extensive campaign tour
enabled him to divide this part of the
State with his rivals. New York county
gave him 70 per cent, of Its vote and
Rennet the rest, excepting seven votes
for Wadsworth, Hedges so started with
considerable strength In Kings. The other
counties, following tho example ft
Albany, first on the list, divided their
voles among tho three leading cnndl
dutes with singular equality. Mr. Wads
worth on tho first ballot got tho solid
votes of Franklin, Genesee, Montgomery,
Livingston, Niagara, Ontario, lMtnam

HEDGES IN FIELD SINCE JUNE.
Mr. Hedges first nnnounced his
candidacy 011 Juno 4. In his quest for
delegates he made a tour of tho Stato
and his campaign was summed up re
cently by a statement In which ho de
clared his Independence. "Tho success
ful candldato for governor In Novem
ber," he said at that time, "must com
mand public confidence regardless of
party affiliation. No man can be elect
ed who Is not the free choice of tho
free delegates. The nomination of Os
car S. Straus, effected as It was, re
quires of the republicans a nom'hatlon
equally Ingenuously made."
Mr. Hedges said that ho had an
nounced his candidacy before the na
tional convention so that "it could not
be charged to tho prospective Influ

No one received the announcement of
Mr. Hedges's success with more delight
than Miss Grace Hedges, his aunt, who
presides over tho candidate's bachelor
establishment In New York city. Miss
Hedges turned to two ladles of her
party who occupied seats beside her on
tho platform nnd expressed her feelings
by kissing them enthusiastically. Her
friends returned the salute while the
delegate's laughed and cheered.
A short time later a small black kit
ten with n whlto face strolled non
chnlnntly across the platform and thero
was a wild yell from the delegates' seats
when Chairman Rrackett picked It up
and gravely set In on his desk as a

"I am going to tell of the human nature
of this campaign as I understand it," said
Mr. Hedges to-night. "Ninety per cent, of
the things that have been said In politics
this summer should never have been ut

story of what people want to know In thlj
campaign regardless of all conventions
nnd traditions. I am going to tell It all

Mr. Hedges expects to be on the stump
from now until election time. Scores of
messages of congratulations were received
by tho candidates to-night. Ono to Mr.
Hedges from President Taft read:
"I congratulate you heartily on your

meeting many steep grades,
A mile or so brought. us to Dead Horse

saj-B, many a horse, overheated with the
long pull, drank to lis death of tho
cold water which runs temptingly from
the rusty Iron pipe. From this point tho
road is steep, and very stony in place's,
winding In nnd out among the trees and
bushes, through which, after a steady
upward climb of about three-quarters ot
a mile, wo caught our first glimpse of the
great cliffs on either side.
Near the highest point of the Notch
a path to the right led us to Smugglers'
Cave, a short distance from the load.
The "cave" Is a series of Irregular cham
bers, formed by great rocks which havo
fallen at various periods In the post from
the cliff a-bovo and have piled them
selves up one upon another In nn Im
mense, confuseel mass, leaving spaces
between them, among the Intricacies of
which one may climb and crawl for a
surprisingly long time.
Further on wo began to descend, and
soon came to a great rock which lies on
the left, or Mount Sterling, side of tho
road, but which fell, semie two years
ago, from a point In the cliff on the
Mount Manstleld side seven or eight
hundred feet above. Ixiosened by tho
forces of nature. It came tearing down
through the trees which clung to tho
steep slopes, sweeping everything In Its
path, ami digging a great track In tho
mountain side, till II came to rest just
across the roadway. Estimating roughly,
tho professor calculated Its bulk to bo
about 10,000 cubic feet, and Its weight
about l.OOo tons. As one stands beside it,
and looks up at the great rocky height
from which it fell, ho can seen plainly
the place where it hung for countless
centuries, and the path of destruction It
left behind In reaching the place where,
for many more centuries, It will probably
About a mile further down we came to
the famous spring which no traveler
through the Notch will over forget. The
professor, being equipped with a ther
mometer as well as with apparatus for
measuring heights, told us that the tem
perature of the water was 43 degrees
Fahrenheit. The quantity of water Is

about .Vi gallons per minute. It flows

stones to I he valley below, making a
good-sized stream from the very start.
Here wo found nn old table, apparently
improvised for such as we, and wo
ngreed without a dissenting voice that
It was time for lunch.
We devoured our store-bought victuals
with more than barbarian relish, for our
long tramp and unwonted exertions had
glvn us the appetites of prehistoric man,
and we quenched our thirst at the an
cient spring which had gushed forth
from Sterling's base thousands of ye-ars
before prehistoric man wns Invented,
That raw onion, which SI had happily
thought of nt the store, gave us sufft
clent breath for our toilsome homeward
Journey. After lighting cigars, and tak
ing a fow snapshots, we explored tho
old empty bouse, upon whose abandoned
wiills many a traveler has penciled his
autograph, nnd where many a quill-back
has planted his teeth In the woodwork
and gnawed gre-nt holes In tho tloor.
Rollig now ready to retrace our steps,
we became suddenly aware that the pro
fessor was missing. We wero somewhnt
surprised that, If ho Intended going back
alone, he had not told us so; but, being
well acquainted with his Impulsive na
ture, we flnallv concluded that some sud
den lure of the wild had seUed him and
started back without him. After a short
distance, however, we. found him,
solemnly measuring the height of tho
towering clllfs on either side. Somo of
thes he had ascertained to be between
1,000 and 1,200 feet high.
The Journey bock to the big fallen
rock was uneventful, except that I
keeured a snapshot of SI seated on a
rock from which sprang five falr-slied
trees with apparently nothing to nourish
them, but upon Investigation wo found
that their roots ran down the other sldo
of th rook to tho ground. Reaching tlu
fallan rock, It whb proposed to climb the
declivity from which It had come, to

At tho brow of Dead Horse Hill the

Hence, vain Illusive Ease,
Thou offspring of the Unearned Increment,
Got In the pampering lap
Of an Inherited eighteen per cent.;
Dwell In the vacuous mind
Of sterile citizens and undeslred.
Or with them refuge find
Who know the weakling sin of being tired
But come, effective Spirit free.
Como at an enduranco pace,
A smile (not pensive) on thy face;
Strife, peace-compelling, with thee brink
Like cohorts of the German king,
While lagging far behind thee ride
Captains who cannot keep thy side.
And for reward to vigor due.
Admit me still thy face to vlow,
To cross the country twice a week.
At every town I pass to speak.
To beard the Congress In IU lair.
And In the coal mines face the Baeri
To frame tho laws and pass them too,
Tho latest poet to review,
And nature fakirs to expose
With Ananias, nose to nose.
Dark Africa to re-explore
From end to end and o'er and o'er.
Till tho old fnw untrue shall ring,
Since I have left thero no new thing.
Then to the continent nnon
To sco what statesmanship Is on:
A run through Italy and Greece,
A lecture In Berlin on "Peace,"
On "Social Etiquette" at Uopie,
In Paris on "The Childless Home;"
In London Anglo-Saxon style
To lecture relatives a while,
And show how races should be ruled
In our stern self-restraint unschooled
Then to My Country back to fare
To straighten out the tangle there:
To demonstrate by proof at hand
That what I want all men demand.
To prove that two and one make thre
For others only, not fur me,
To drlvo finance In chastened line
In bonds as strong as binder twine,
Till railroad kings their strivings ceasv
And party bosses sue for peace
(Those who oppose me anyway,
Of others I have less to say).
And never In my life to know
A moment when the time Is slow;
To feel from thee the foree Is sent
To bo for all things competent -
A moral tidal Hay of Fundy,
An Intellectual Salmagundi.
And let me In my middle age
Stand In tho limelight of tho stage,
Napoleon-like, while round my knees
The monnrcbs come, and by degrees
And painful efforts to attain
Tho wisdom It is mine to gain,
For this, O Strenuosity
My altars will I ralec to thee.
