Sensation.
Washington, Nov. 20. nation wide,
raifl. involving the arrest practically slm
i Itnncnusty of 173 persons In the principal
eitlts of the country, was made to-day by
postofllco Inspectors and United Stated
marshals upon doctors and drag con
cerns, charged with misuse of tho mails
1o solicit criminal medical prac
tice, or to dlsposo of medicines and In
ternments connected with such practice.
The raid the most extensive and far
re-aching ever made by any department
nf tho government was under the per
sona! direction of Postmaster-Oener.il
Hitchcock and Chief Inspector Robert St.
Sharp of the postoniee department. So
carefully had Its details been guarded
that until the first of the arrests were
iii.mr .ik Ji!ui(iu.iiuiis eariy in ine any,
practically nothing was known of the
government's contemplated action. "Work
Ins with clock like precision, the in
spection force pprend over 32 States
carried nut the prearranged plans, and,
nt an early hour to-night, the postofllce
depaitment had received word that
practl a'ly all of the designated persons
lind been airested.
Th results of tho crusades are still
' log received to-nlpht by tho Inspectors'
illvl I .ii of the postofflec department In
the form of dozens of telegrams from
various divisional headquarter. In Iso
lated Instances It was found, for various
reasons, to be Impracticable to effect
the arrests, but the suspected persons
against whom warrants have been Is
sued, are under surveillance nnd proba
lilv w'lll bo unable fo escape.
f'lih f Inspector Sharpn ami a largo
p,xvt of his force of SM Inspectors had
lire n engaged for seven months, under
tli onlcis of the postmaster-general, In

mi ' rnwii In their own communities.
i i iverninent will prosecute the
c.i ci ;orotisly, according to a state
ment b. Postmastor-Cleneral Hitch
cock to-night.
"The work of the postofflco lnspec
tors to-day is tho culmination of the
crusade instituted more man two years
ago against tho fraudulent and unlaw
f i' use of the malls," said Mr. Hitch
i ock "In that comparatively brief
ti ie we have wiped out of existence
concerns which have mulcted the peo
pie of this country out of more than
SlOOnnOOOO by frauds perpetrated
through the use of the malls and tho
courts have sent many of the promot
ers of tho fraudulent scheires to the
penitentiary where they now are serv
lug time. The wide publicity given
to tho arrests made to-day will do
more to put an end to this particular
nort of criminality than any ntimbor
of practically unknown prosecutions
of widely separated cases."

Montpeller, Nov. ac Echoes of the
oli feud between Vermont arif. NVw
j Hampshire, whlel: dates back to the
i time when sixteen New Hampshire
, towna came undur Vermont Jurisdic
tion, and '(ir afterward ceded baek,
on recommendation of Allen, to smooth
j the way for the admission of Vermont
.o tne ijnion. were rewakneJ this
morning when Senator Babbitt Intro
duced a Joint resolution providing for
h determination of the boundary be
tween the two States. The rnsoluMou
recites In brief the troubles that hnv
oxisted and the attempt of New llamp
shire to exercise sovereignty over
Vermont territory, and requires the
attorney-general ot the State to insti
tute proceedings In the fnlte 1 States
oun.cn, eourt to d-termlne this
boundary.
The resolution In full, n., adopted by
the Senate, ,s as tollenvs:
Wherea.s a controversy i.nw exists be
tween this State and the State of New
Hampshire- as to the location of the
boundary between the two Stat-s, this
State of Vermont claiming that the
boundary was llxed by Congress when
Vermont was admitted Into 'he union in
:71 at the eaMern boundary of the orU
lnal grants of lands on the territory called
the New Hampshire grants and 'he west
ern uourmury or tne original grants, of
lands in the province of New Hampshire,
the same being the thread of the stream
of the Connecticut river, and
Whereas officials acting under and by
the authority of the law's of the Stat"
of New Hampshire hav- recently asserted
and are now asserting a claimed right to
levy and collee-t taxes on lands and prop-
Montiwller, Nov. ?). A resolution
favoring the removal of the seat of gov
ernment from Montpeller to Burlington
Is In process of preparation. This res
olution Is the result of the constantly
Increasing dissatisfaction with the
cramped conditions which obtain In the
present State House. Notwithstanding
the hearings with tegard to f-pace In
the capltol, nothing appears to have
been done and the dissatisfaction seems
constantly on the Increase. Burlington
aeeu-.s to be the flrt choice of a number
of legislators, ?nd unless definite steps
are taken to secure nnre standing room
for Una crowded committees It Is likely
that tho resolution will poll a .surptis
Ingly heavy vote.
