Is a graduate of the industrial school and

Important ipiehtloii.-i. In dcnllng with tin
lieero question I'm. V.iiilain.m took a
view direct I v opposite to that usually
presented iu Vermont, but spoke as one
who knew and dealt with the matter In
an Intimate and frank manner.
Prof. M. D. Chittenden introduced tho
speaker n. the t.T-govcrnor and senator
of Mississippi saving tb.it he was four
years goxernor of the Stnte and had been
elected lo the Fnlted Slates Senate by a
popular file which cairled 78 of tho 7'J
counties In his district.
By far the inosl Interesting part of the
aililn-ss was that which had to do with
conditions In the South arising out of the
negro tumble. lie took up, howevir.
many other subjects, such ai. the recall
of bulges, and said that hi no coiintiy
was the Judicial bench allowed to exei else
such power us In the Fnlted States. He
feaied usurpation "f power h Judges ami
In fact said that the history of their
decisions during the past 40 years had
hem a story ,.f usurpation of power. Tin
constitution was iifver Intended to give
on- small uiterle of men the right to
oierthiow the will ot '.i'J,iiih,(iii ot people,
and If there was any body who ought to
be called and re-called and kicked off
the face of the rattli it was the bench of
tli- supreme court.
The purchase of the Philippine Islands
also came In for his criticism, as well as
I the expense of maintaining and lncreas
lug the army and navy. "Two-thirds of
the money appropriated by Congress Is
to pay for wars nlnadv fought or to pre
pare for another one," declared Clovcrnor
H was on the negro question, however,
thnt th" speaker grew most eloquent and
he gave his views fi arlessly to what he
j-uppiisfd would he Inclined to be a bus
tile audience. He began at the time of
the war ami said that neither he nor any
other southerner hated the negro, and
that wiu n the war broko out every man
mid boy of any size left their homes and
their loved ones In the can- of the faith
ful slaves. Alter the war he had worked
side by ridu with them, during tho time
v leu his family was sintering from re
verses. He knew them In every phase of
their lives, it w.us not until several yearB
niter the war that any white woman was
assaulted by the negroes', and this was
the result of the training. At the present
t'me tin home was left unguarded for a
moment and no white woman was al
lowed to walk a block through the most
settled district In town without a white
e.-coit. A lelgn of terror hung nvir thi
entire soutlurn i oimtry, the re.-ult of
the freedom afforded the neg-o an 1 m
belief which has been Instilled Into hint
that he Is tile equal of the white man.
Senator Vardaman quoted Thomas Jef
ferson, who foresaw the troubles that
would ultimately arise trom the treedom
of tho slaves, which he knew would sm.ie
time come. lie i.-ad extracts which
showed that Jefferson believed the
qiuMioi. could never be solved by making
the negro the social and political equal of
the white man. Elr.'uts from Abraham

The speaker then went Into thu physi
cal dlfierences in the two races, referiitu;
to the difference In tin- shapes of the
skulls and to the matitn r In which the
m.-ii of both races developed. During
uirly childhood the mgio was fully n.-"
relf-ivllant as the white child and 'ro
gusiicd probably as rapidly until the ago
i.f puberty, and then- the. difference in -gan.

He then went exhaustively into tlm
physical differences, "you have proba

thought perhap" that It was the result
of a draught," said the governor, "but
the mllre Mississippi river couldn't get

poisonous mosquito which carries tho

linn wint on to say that It was not

in every case the negro had white blood

The governor then compared th dif
ference In conditions in Vermont, where
thero were only S'J', negroes in lfV to
Mississippi whero they constituted E.H
pir cent, of the population. Whiskey
and cocaine have combined to make de
mons of them there. After painting with
realism the conditions arising from this,
the speaker went on to the remedies.
He thought the tlrst of these should be
the lepiallng of the 13th amendment to
the constitution, which had never been
Intended to apply to negroes. By shut

before nine o'clock, where President Max
L. Powell acted as toasttua.itcr. The fol

If hn finished his lecture at tho high
school In time, but was still speaking
there when the lawyers adjourned.
Charles E. Allen was the llrst speaker
of tho evening, and paid a full and high
tribute to the late Judge A. A. Hull, em
phasizing his clear, impartial and Inde
pendent qualities on the bench, and cit
ing the Sllns case, wherein Judge Hall
differed with the majority of the suprrnn
court, lint rrcflved -i general opinion con
curring with his own.
Mr. Powell delivered the president's
address, discussing tin- practice of tho
law yesterday and to-day. Describing
the methods of trial in voguo
years ago, when suits wire con
tested with th" utmost ardor, he depre
catiil needles'! rcort to legal ptoeess
nnd romnunded that type ot lawyer
that adjusts a client's affairs out of
court and saves needless expense. In
conclusion, he pleaded for fees com
mensurate with tlie brains of tho pro-
fe.ssicn. Fees, he mid, remain much tho
same in sections of Vermont ns they
were !u years past, nnd while engineers,
for example, receive due financial re
ward for their services, the legal pro
fession. In respect of tho character of
the men in its ranks, Is perhaps the
poorest paid of any Iln of effott.
Judge Taylor, now presiding in Chit
tenden rounly court, said that the pres
ent time Is one of unrest in court af
f.iiis. The spirit of reform Is abroad.
Much of this Is due to agitation, hut
for It there must lie some real ground,
some wrong tn bo righted, even If but
an Imaginary one.
"It occurs to Hi"," he observed, "that
legislation as ,1 mcms of nieetlnp these
ncc.is Is fraught with danger. Changes
should come from bar and bench. It
seems to me, if conditions are not cor
rect' il, they are liable to be sublected
to legislation, with possible attendant

Redmond, when such men as Edmund

taneously In Vermont.
"The lawyer's profession," said he, "is
