An Unnecessary Veto.
On Monday evening both branches of the
City Council passed an order appropriating
$300 from the contingent fund to he expend
ed in freeing the trees in the public streets
and grounds from the caterpiliars which are
destroying them. As originally drafted,
the appropriation was made from the appro
priation for cemeteries and public grounds;
but it was amended so as to have the mouey
taken from the contingent fund. When
the order came before the Mayor for approv
al, instead of approving it he vetoed it for
the reason that the contingent fund ought
not to be drawn upon until the appropria
tion for cemeteries and public grounds is ex
hausted. This veto was accomplished in
such a manner that the reporters and some
of the members of the hoard of Aldermen
did not know he had killed the order by
his peremptory act.
The Mayor’s views of the purposes and
uses of a contingent fund are peculiar. This
appropriation is not simply an extra appro
priation to he drawn upon when other ap
propriations are exhausted, hut it is made
and iu'ended to cover just such cases as
this where an unforseen exigency calls for
an expenditure not contemplated when the
annual estimates were made. To take the
sum requisite for protection from the sud
denly developed pest of this season from the
contingent fund is entirely proper. It is
well enough to be careful about wasting this
fund, but evciy tax-payer who takes pride iu
the leafy beauty of Portland would sanction
the action proposed. The Mayor's scruples
are technical, rather than substantial. If the
money had been taken from the appropria.
tion for cemeteries and public grounds, it is
probable that appropriation would prove de
ficient before the end of the year. No mon
ey would be saved by taking the three hun
dred dollars from one appropriation rather
than from another.
The next meeting of the City Council does
not occur until September, when It will be
too late. The caterpillars must be destroyed
before that date or it will be impracticable
to successfu ily wage war upon them. The
Mayor’s action has, so far as he is con
cerned, devoted the beautiful trees which
are the glory of our city to destruction. He
will be a fortunate man if during his term of
office, or dining his life, he is able to accom"
plish any good thing for the city which wil
compensate for the ruin he has invi ed.
The merit of the proposed appropriation
was not that it was large enough to pay for
all the work necessary, but that it was suf
ficient to stimulate public interest and en
courage all public-spirited citizens to help
the work along. There is no encouragement
to the owners of private grounds to rid their
owu trees of the pest if all the avenues of
which the city has charge are permitted to
be uurseries of caterpillars which will
swarm in fresh and increasing broods over
the adjacent gardens. In the weeks to come
ltt everv man and woman upon whom one
of the disgusting worms drops from the trees
overhanging oar sidewalks remember the
Mayor’s veto, and consider whether it is
worth while to make an appropriation from
the contingent fund of gratitude In recogni
tion of this particular public service.
The Crash at St Albans.
The failure of Bradley Barlow and of the
financial institutions he drags d. wn with
him will cause as much excitement, aud
perhaps as much suffering, in Northern
Vermont as the failure of Shaw and Broth
ers will cause in parts of Maine. He was
the most enterprising capitalist of that sec"
tion of the State and a man whose energy
had achieved some remarkable successes. He
had the prestige of his achievements as a
part of his capital of confidence. From be
ing cashier of a St. Altans bank he became
a star-route contractor to save some loans
made by the institution, and finding the
bussiness profitable he went into it exten
sively and made much money. He was
prominent in politics and for a time was an
opponent of the faction led by Governor
Smith. A few years ago he was elected to
Congress as a republican independent and
greenbacker; but he made no figure there
and indeed was very seldom in his seat dur
ing his term. The railroad which
he has long carried, and which was a fail
ure before he undertook to save it, runs
through a sparsely settled region in which
it has been unable to build up a paying bus
iness. The National Bank which loaned
$300,000 to this corporation violated the law
which forbids loans to one party in excess
of ten per cent, of the bank’s capital. The
law will hold him personally responsible for
all losses on this account. His career has
been active, and in a sense brilliant; but it
ends in ruin not free from disgrace. We
shall doubtless hear that scores of farmers
and small business men whose capital was
invested in the St. Albans institutions con
trolled by Barlow have been financially
wrecked by him. Such a disaster paralyzes
the prosperity of a whole region.
A Jail Delivery.
It is sometimes wondered at that crimes
are so frequent in the South; hut to any one
whe attentively regards what is called the
administration of justice in that quarter the
phenomeuou ceases to be marvellous. We
do not know how many criminals Governor
Blackburn of Kentucky has pardoned dur
ing his term, but the number is large and
constantly increasing. The worse the crime
and the more certainly guilty the criminal,
the surer is his compassion. So far this
month he has pardoned but three, but they
were all first class rogues. One of them was
David Ferguson, sometime tax-receiver of
“the city of Louisville, while in that office he
stole a matter of $05,000 belonging to the
city, and resorted to various forgeries
There were several city officials concerned
with him in the business, but they were got
off by the lawyers. Ferguson confessed and
great efforts were made to save him from
the disgrace of going to jail. The Governor
has held out about a year, but now he par
dons him not only for his confessed crime
but for “any crimes for which he now
stands indicted.”
Another of this batch was a policeman
who obtained money from the State on
fraudulent claims. The last was Grove
Kennedy, a precious scoundrel who has
murdered several men, one of them being
his uncle who was acting as guardian of his
children. He is said to be sweet tempered
when ho is not in liquor and nobody pre
sumes to oppose his wishes. It must not be
supposed that the Governor of Kentucky
turned these convicts loose in honor of the
opening of the great exhibition of Southern
resources and industries at Louisville, as
sovereigns sometimes empty prisons to cele
brate a great occasion. This proceeding is
only in accordance with Governor Black
burn’s habit. Me dislikes to have any good
Democrats deprived of their liberty, and
these men are no worse than many others
he has released from irksome confinement.
The brief discussion in the Common
Council Monday night over the additional
appropriation asked for on account of re
pairs of the Chestnut street school house is
illuminating as far as it goes. It did not re
veal what the job will cost—no man knowB
that—but it showed very clearly that the
work was undertaken in a way which is
likely to prove extravagant. The acknowl
edgment that unexpected expenses have
been necessarily incurred in the progress of
the work shows that it was inconsid
ately begun. The builders who figured on
the job appear to have known more about
such business than the Mayor and his com
mittee.
Of all absurd -senses for an inexcusable
action that which has been put forth in
some quarters for the discharge of Mr. T. E.
Ha/ell from the position of music teacher in
the public schools, namely that ho had en
gaged in the singing exercises at political
meetings, deserves to be decorated with the
blue ribbon. It was not necessary for Mr
Hazell to deny such a charge, but he has
done so iu the sufiiclent and sensible terms
following.
I bare never attended a political caucus In my
life, nor been identified lu any way with campaign
work of any description. Iu casting my vote, how
ever, I consider I have only exercised a part of my
right of franchise, for I can see no excuse for hav •
lug any political work done iu which a teaehor or
any other honorable and Intelligent man might not
with propriety engage
T. E. Hazell.
The Boston Advertiser which has been dis
tinguished among news papers by the care
ful exclusion from its columns of reports
of executions, prize fights, slugging match
es, and scandalous trials, and which on the
morning after the great Sullivan benefit in
Boston did not mention the affair, contained
yesterday a full report of the Sulltvan-Slade
slugging match in New York. “How art
thou fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the
morning!'’
Ashes of Koses.
BY UBS. OEO. A. CASWELL.
“O, that is lovely!” exclaimed afour-year
old girl, with hands clasped and eyes up
turned like one who sees a vision. “That”
was an expanse of {'littering sand In whose
midst lay a battered tin pan and a spoon.
Her words were echoed an hour later by a
woman with tired heart and brain, looking
away from the “Oxford House” over the
cooi green fields of the Saco vailey, with
their great villages of while-capped haycocks.
The fields are many-tinted in their greens,
patched here and there with brown, relieved
by beautiful elms aud willows, cut into a
crazed sort of geometrical problem by fences
and the crooked, shining Saco, flaunt
ing great yellow daisies and lilies aud fringed
white with meadow-rue. Men are hurrying
to toss the uncovered hay to the top of
rounded loads that seem all ready to topple
over. Every white cap and every uncon
cerned ox looks as though it were there sole
ly for ornament, so perfectly does auything
that happens to appear in these broad inter
vales fit into its place. Haycocks, oxeu and
loads are so extremely picturesque aud so
far away against their green background
that one thinks nothing of the worry and
flurry of the men, and till he looks at the
mountains with thin veil of shadow and
scurrying clouds, the sunlight kissing only
the uplifted face of Kearsarge, it seem* no
more real than any stage effect. One almost
listens to hear the orchestra sound the mu
sic that he is himself fitting to the scene and
the thunder that rumbles and tumbles
among the mountains is far better than the
zinc thunder of Kip Van Winkle, The next
act comes soon enough. The men scramble
to the top of the loads without tumbling the
hay down—nobody knows how; quite at
their leisure the oxen move aud the great
loads sway aud creak and climb the hill and
labor into barns. The oxen, once there and
knowing they are to stay, switch their tails
and toss their horns as though nobody had
I been half so much in a hurry as they. The
clouds, though growing blacker and blacker,
have waited till this minute and now drop
the gentlest of warm summer showers in
great drops like beads, while the mountains
—one might as well look for mountains in
Holland, so completely are they hii den be
hind the cloud-curtains.
It is lovely! So is the sand-bank, if
looked at from the right stand-point, and if
Four-years prefers the sand-bank with its
simp le diversifying features, Fifty-years will
turn to the mountains, and so maintain the
equilibrium of things.
Wide apart as are mountains and sand
bank in their points of interest, Fryeburg
offers much that is desirable in the way of
the two extremes. The sand-bank stretches
away on two sides of the village and breaks
up into countless sandy roads that cross
one another at every conceivable angle and
describe every possible curve. Then there
are little “connecting roads” that serve to
disconnect everything that would otherwise
hold together, and so complicate matters that
you know that the engineer who evolved
them had delirium tremens. So far as
knowing where you are is concerned, you
might as well be in Boston. However, if
you start to drive to one point and find in
the end that you have reached quite anoth
er, it doesn’t matter much. All ways lead
out among the pines, and you will drive for
miles over grass-grown roads where the dew
.lies on low leaves till long after noon,
flecked with shadows, strewn with pine
needles, fragrant with ferns, aud given over
to mosquitoes. You may come back laden
with scarlet and white and gold—bunchber
ries, clematis and golden-rod, and if you
wish for brown there are cat-o’-nine-tails.
Or if it be mountains and fields that you
wish to see, all the green miles of intervales
reach away to mountains that rise white and
cold to-day, warm and hazy to-morrow; now
desolate, chill and forbidding, then glad aud
bright, and bathed in light from summit to
foot.
It is lovely if one wants rest. Of Frye
burg herself, that is, the village—but this is
almost personal. It becomes necessary to
move carefully. One doesn’t wish to SDeak
of his elderly aunt or his grandmother as
“kittenish.” And I remember Fryeburg
more years ago than I should think of men
tioning—a village whose main street was
all elms and lilacs aud white houses with
green blinds; where there were tin peddler’s
carts, “shook teams” creeping slowly about
in clouds of white dust, a horse and wagon
jogging along under the elms now and then,
and a great yellow stage clattering up from
Portland with the mail once a day; where
the meat-man and the fish-man drove from
door to door, aud everybody did marketing
from the back of the wagons; where if one
didn’t fancy the ca'ico or black alpaca that
the one or two stores offered, Bhe had the
privilege of going without, and where, more
over, the last year’s dress would do very
well; where the academy and the meeting
house were the beginning and the end of ev
erything; where thero were picnics and su
garing-off parties, aud lyceums to improve
the mind, and “circles” to improve the man
ners, I suppose, and school exhibitions with
white dresses and pink ribbons aud essays.
“Oh, the giorions vanished hence!
Ob, the sad imperfect tense!”
j I have vivid memories of the day when,
my dolls and myself newly dressed for the
occasion, I was set down hereto go to school.
It didn’t console me that “Dauiel Webster
once taught here.” I had left behind me a
little white-haired girl beside whom Datdel
Webster was a pigmy to me. jttbnt to bed,
refused gruel and determined to piDe away.
That plan being frustrated, however, I real
ly did go to school aud then aud there, for
the first aud last time struggled with ‘ the
woman question.” In front of the academy
was a fence tastefully and simuly built of
ong granite bloeks arranged like bars of
soap in a grocer's window, and “the boys’
had declared that little girls should not walk
this fence. But the little girls maintained
their rights, and the discussion waxed warm.
Finally, at their wit’s end, as men usually
are in handling this question, the boys re
sorted to a strategem, and tilted one end of
the fence. Next morning all the feminine
disputants lay scattered far and wide on the
grounds with their fists in their eves. A
lew of the stronger-minded one3 still main
tained their position, and I saw a little girl
walk that very fence this very day. But I
was »o convinced by this argument that r
betook myself to my dolls again, and never
since have felt any interest in my rights.
Now I find myself rather bewildered by
the turn of affairs. Hammocks have dis
placed the lilacs; white houses with green
blinds, “looking as though just painted and
set out to dry,” are only occasional, because
the aesthetic fever turns out to be contagious.
The academy is renewing her youth; instead
of the meeting-house are three churches;
there are flue carriages, several stores, bu ch
ers, bakers aud candlestick-makers; the gro.
cer’s man comes to the kitcheu to take or
ders; there is a town clock and a water
company, and the “summer boardei” is
abroad In the laud. Thejocomotivo shrieks
unnoticed many times a day. The people
have forgotten the old yellow stage, though
they still leau standlug at the cross roads in
the heart of the village, a time worn guide
board stating, among other bits of useful
information, that it is seventy-seven miles
to Concord, New Hampshire. Fryeburg,
alas, is a “smart business town.” Lyceums
aud sociables, or “circles,” aud picnics and
sugaring-off parties are going on in the
hands of the very babies whom I dandled
upon my knee, as it were. “My fields are
turning brown.” And as I walk the same
old street under the same old trees, tracing
the line of the years, I And it running
through much of comedy aud more of trag
edy, through lives full of tears and across
many a grave. The village is new, the peo
ple are new, all old things are passed away,
aud I turn always at last to the mountains.
Will they have moved into the valley? or,
perchance, have been levelled altogether?
Ah, the “demon of change” has left them
untouched, perforce! Hugged, stroug and
still, they are growing dark against the red
sunset sky, the selfsame mountains that I
watched for hours In my homesickneis so
many years ago—the selfsame mountains
that met my tearful gaze when I rose from
the ground and retired, vanquished aud op
pressed, from the woman’s rights argument
—the selfsame mountains under whose shad
ow we picnicked aud frolicked—the only
thing, save the forlorn old guide-board, un
changed by the long years.
Kearsarge gathers up the last golden sun
shine rays, aud wears them like a
crown. I forget that these blue bright
ranges and suuset clouds are ever
dreary and cold and gray. And while
I look old-time faces come back, one by one,
to watch the mountains with me. The ray8
of red and gold light them up till they flush
into youth again; to-night, for one fanciful
moment,
"I may stand fresh and fair
And drop the garment, care;
Once more my perfect youth doth nothing lack.”

SCHNAPPS.
As a general beverage and necessary
corrective of water rendered impure by
vegetable decomposition or other causes,
as Limestone, Sulphate of Copper &e, the
Aromatic Schnapps is superior to every
other alcoholic preparation. A public
saltr of over SO vears duration in every
section of onr country of Udolpho Wolfe'S
Schnapps, its unsolicited endorsement by
the medical faculty and a -ale uneqnaled
by any other alcoholic distillation hav
insured for it the reputation of salubrity
claimed for it. For sale by all Druggist

RUBBER
BELTING.
Important to ajhfho use Belting.
Wo have Just patented a new article in Rubber
Belting which is sold under the name of
giant:belting.
oThis Belting is made up with the usual plies of
Duck and Rubber, and, before putting on the out
side cover, t is (Hitched in seams one inch apart
with cotton cord, which has a pulling strength of
fifty pounds. It is then stretched in its plastic
state, drawing the plies so close together, that
with the strong cord with which it is stitched, mate
rial strength is added to the belt, and the stitches
are so drawn into the plastic rubber, that they can
not wear off on the outside. 1 he outside cover is
then put on senmlrsn, so that it cannot open, as is
the case of Rubber Belting made in the ordinary
way, and the plies being so firmly stitched, as wel
as Motioned together, that the holt cannot separate
as many belts made in the old way will, after bein
used for a time, especially when run at a greag
speed or in damp places.
We particularly call the attention of all Mill own
ers to this Beit as being in the end the cheapest belt
they cau buy, while the first cost is only about ten
per cent more than bolting made in the ordinary
way. We believe t ,,rill wear more than double the
length of time. For ueavy main belts yon will find
it superior to anything made. It Is also superior for
ttnolcMN Beltx, as we stitch the splice in such
way that it enunot nepiii ntc.
1'ry Our Giant licit. We will Warrant
Satisfaction.
