The Harre Entertainment Association
held their annual nieeling at the Na
tional Hank last evening and elected offi
cers for the, ensuing year as follows :
Directors (). D. Mathewson, Presi
dent; Frank F. Cave, Secretary; F. G.
Ilowland, Treasurer; and the following
other members were elected to the Hoard
of Directors: N, J. Roberta, Geo. Lani

The Hoard of Directors elected the fol
lowing Executive Committee : V. H.
Gladding, W. F. Morse and It. S, Cur

Total receipts for the past season,
$1101,05; total expenses for the past
season, $1027.97 ; leaving a net surplus
of $12:1.08, making with the amount al
ready in the treasury SI ,8:57.02,
The Directors voted to give eight en
tertainments next season. The Direc
tors and the Executive Committee de
serve a good deal of praise for the satis
factory manner in which the business
has been conducted during the pat year,
not only from a financial standpoint, but
also on account of the high grade of the
entertainments which have been given
to the patrons.
THE ELECTRIC ROAD.
When II. K. Hush, agent for the Harre
and Montpelier Traction and Power
Company was seen today he stated that
the road would probably lake no immed

son, president of the road. He said
that the directors would probably meet
in this city the first part of .June and at
that time elect a president and superin
tendent, of the road. He did not think
the roa'd would be in running order un

AHOUT THE SOCIALISTS.
At the meeting of the Hams section
of the socialist labor party held on
Wednesday evening in the hall over
Scamj ani's store a letter entitled "Ob
jections to Socialism," from the pen of
Hubert lilatchford, author of "Merrie
England," was read. The writer, in
answer to an assertion by one, Sir J.W.
Maclure, M. P., that there is nothing to
prevent the son of n crossing sweeper
from rising to be Lord Chancellor of
England, pointed out that the present
struggle for existence might be fitly
compared to a fire, panic in a big hall.
To (piote from the writer: "The hall is
full of people and then! is only one
door. A rush is made for that door.
Some of that crowd get out, some are
trampled to death, some are injured,
some are burned. -Now that crowd of
people, who are most likely to escape?
Those nearest tlie door have a better
chance than those furthest, the strong
have a better chance than the weak, and
(he men have a belter chance than the
women, and the children the worst
chance of all. Then again, which is the
more, likely to be saved, the st ilish man
who tights' and drags others down, who
stands upon the fallen bodies of women
and children, and wins his way by
force; or the brave and gentle man
I who tries to help the women and chil
dren, anil will not trample on tne
wounded? 1 hose who get through are
cheered and rewarded, and few ques
tions are asked as to how they got
through. Further, suppose the hall to
be divided into three parts; first, the
stalls, men tne pit sraus, men me pu.
SuoDose the only door is the door in the
stalls; suppose the people in the pit
stalls have to climb a high barrier to
get to the stalls ; suppose those in the
pit have, to elnn'o a ingii uarrier io get
to the pit stalls, and men a high barrier;
that parts the pit stalls from the stalls;
suppose there is, right at the back part
of the pit, a small weak boy. Now I
ask you as sensible men, 'Is there
'nothing to prevent'' that hoy from
I'cttiug through that door!" You know
the boy has only the smallest of chances
of getting out of that hall Hut. he has
a thousand times better chance of get
ting safely out of that door than the son
of a crossing sweeper has of becoming
Lord Chancellor of England."
The above may appear to some to ap
ply only to Monarchial Hrilain. Very
much the same economic conditions,
however, exist in Republican America.
There, also, the erroneous idea is to be
encountered that any one of the working
class, who constitute. .r2 per cent of the
population, and who own but four and
a half per cent of the wealth of the
country, may, if they so will it, become
millionaires! or. at least, become poses
sons of properly to the extent of thous
ands of dollars' value. It is an estab
lished economic fact that the riches of
one man is based on the necessary pov
erty of hundreds of his fellowmcn. And
if the present capitalist system continues
for another fifty years, the working
class will find themselves (instead of
being better off than they are to-day)
I lie slaves of a few hundred billioiiidrcs.

WHAT THE BAND PLAYED.
An Exciting Dinner Table Episode on an
An instance of what it calls "trans
atlantic courtesy" is related by Le Oau
lois of Paris. One of the greatest singers
of France, a woman whom it says every
body will at once identify ou a mo
ment's consideration, was returning
from New York on one of the German
liners. Ono evening, glancing at tho
programme of the concert that was to
bo played at dinner, sho saw fbo an
nouncement of a triumphal march cele
brating the German victory of 1671.
"I am snro," rug Biiid to a fellow
conutryman sitting near, "that this is
not intended as a discourtesy to us, but
I don't care! I'm too much of a patriot
not to express my disapproval of it in
my own way when they begin- vo yl&y
this piece. Wait and see. "
The captain, having caught the gist
of these, remarks and noticing tho great
artist's agitation, glanced tit tho pro
gramme to Bee what caused it; then,
without showing nny surprise, ho speko
to one of tho waiters in a low tono.
At the moment when the German tri
umphal march was due to begin tho
French singer, who could hardly con
trol her agitation, prepared to leave the
table. The first chord was played, tho
artist arose and stood, pale, agitated,
amazed, while tho officers and other
passengers also got up and smiled sym
pathetically at her. And tho baud play
ed "Tho Marseillaise!"
now Senator Vest Obtained Ilis Desk.
Many good stories could be told of
the alertness which senators display in
securing well placed desks, but the ex
perience of Mr. Vest is especially worth
relating. When in 1883 thecivil service)
law was being discussed, Mr. Pendlo
tou, an Ohio Democrat, and Mr. Dawes
had presented bills. By a shrewd bit of
polities the Republicans abandoned their
support of Ihe Dawis bill and voted far
Mr. Pendleton's measure, their votes,
together with the votes of the Demo
crats favorable to the measure, being
sufficient to pass it. As the bill was
about to bo voted ou Mr. Cockrell mov
ed that its title bo changed eo as to
read, "A bill to retain Republicans in
office." As soon as it passed, Mr. Vest
filed a claim for Mr. Pendleton's scut.
"The author of such a bill, " said bo,
"will never come back to the senate."
Mr. Vest was right, and at tho begin
ning of the next congress ho moved into
Mr. Pendleton's vacant chair. Wash
The Trees of Tana.
Paris is prcLably (bo only city in the
world which has trees that bloom twice
a year habitually. These aro the horse
chestnuts. Hiero aro 17,000 of them
planted in the squares and along tho
boulevards, and 20,000 buttouwoods
The trees in Paris aro numbered, just
like the people, tho cabs, the animals,
the lampposts and tho matches. These
horso chestnuts have only been doing
this trick for about five years, and only
some of them have mado a practice of
it. These die, or apparently die, in the
latter part of July, and all the leaves
fall off. A month or so afterward they
all come out into flower again and little
green leaves shoot forth continually un
til they are nipped by the first frost.
Thero is a reason for this, and the sci
entists worked over the matter for a
long time to be able to explain it.
Briefly and unscientifically tho trees
lose their leaves becauso they aro at
tacked by a littlo fungus which is blown
upon them by the wind; then, being
still full of sap, they start to put torti)
leaves all over again.
A Precautionary Measure
"What are you doing now, doctor?"
asked tho actress.
"I am taking a snap shot photograph
cf you, madam," rosponded tho dentist,
"so that if any unpleasant consequences
follow this operation and you sue mo
for damages for the loss of yo:r beauty
I can establish something in the nature
of an alibi, as it were. 1 am ready now,
madam, to extract tho tooth. " Chicago
