"Woodbury by acclamation; Mansur on first ballot." Such was the news that came over the wires yesterday tell ing of the result of the Republican con vention at 3 Montpelier. Later dis patches give these figures: Whole huni ber of votes, 571 ; necessary for choice, 286; Mansur, 332; Vail, 193; Bates, 4& This showed , a plurality, for . Mansur over Vail of 139 and a majorityjover all The ivMi.lt left little room for Any doubt as to whom the Republicans of Vermont desire to have lead them in the coming campaign, and proved conclusively that Colonel Mansur was the only man who had any show for the place and that the claims of his op; ponents never had any foundation in fa?t. Of course The Times is pleased. Tha Republicans of the state are to be congratulated upon the choice and that it was decided with such (may we say it now?) "practical unanimity." The result is in no way a reflection upon the worthiness of any other can didate. It simply indicates that the ef forts of well meaning friends were ill timed. The mention of Colonel Man sur as a candidate met with widespread approval from the first, and no good reasons have been advanced why he should not receive the nomination. The ticket is one which every Re publican can heartily support. We be lieve that they will. WILLIAM WALTER PHELPS. The death of William Walter Phelps removes another in the list of Amer ica's truly great and good.' Not only in his own state, but throughout the nation and even in foreign lands had he won distinction as a man of unblem ished character, of rare intellect, and of charming social qualities. The New York Mail and Express well says : "A bright light has been eclipsed, but not extinguished. A brilliant and benefi cent record of noble words and manly works is left to cheer and inspire us, like the lingering perfume of the crushed flower or the trailing splendor of a retiring star. All who personally knew this generous and gifted man, on both sides of the Atlantic, the poor and the rich, the thinker and the toiler, will join hands to-day over oceans and con tinents in a common grief." Although honored with many positions of trust and great distinction, official life held few charms for him, and it was in the pursuit of his chosen profession, in his social life, and his daily contact with men that he exhibited the qualities that endeared him to all and made his a truly successful career. NOTE AND COMMENT. We are forced to remind correspond ents that items must be forwarded on time. Several towns are left out this week that arrived too late. The Pennsylvania priest who re quested all who were in arrears to the church to leave the sanctuary applied a severe test. , Wonder what sort of a showing churches ill general would make under similar circumstances? ,'. - Vermont Academy closes its nine teenth year this week with the usual delightful and successful round of an niversary exercises. A report could not be obtained in season for publication in this issue of the Times but will ap pear next week. The attempt of some English news papers to bring Lord Roseberry into disfavor on account of his participation in tyorse racing sounds very funny after putJtiug up with , the Prince of Wales and his doings for a life time. This is swallowing the camel and straining at the gnat, most decidedly. , Prison Light has Companion stories of recent conspicuous, examples of mis fit justice in this state which striking ly Illustrate the power of money and family influence in shielding criminals. The subject of one of the sketches will no ttoubt be readily recognized: Recently a young man employed in one of our National banks, getting a fat salary, passed ' a forged check for about 2000. He wits arrested within an 1 hour or so, gave a false name, was searched and on his person was found other checks cleverly forged to over if 14,000. It was found that in several places he had tried to pass forged checks. Bail was set at the email sum of $2000 and he was soon at liberty again. The forger was well educated, held several good positions of trust and honor, had a large salary, a aomf ort- able home, he simply wanted more money, and proceeded to get it. A short time ago we were present at the trial Of a young man who was a common laborer. He was poorly edu cated, and the man for .whom he worked owed him $6.00. It had been customary for ttie boy to write out store orders for his em ployer to he presented for payment This had been frequently done with the consent and at the request of the employer. At this particular time $6.00 was due the boy, as his employer admitted in court. An order for this amount was written, as the boy said, at the request of his employer. The lat,ter de nied givingj consent to this particular order, and was believed ' by ' the jury; The boy claimed the "old man was mad bedause I did not return to work, and so had me arrested ". Mo one was wronged out of a cent eTen if it had been a forgery. The boy lay in Jail for months under $3000 bail, then was sent to prison at hard labor for six months. How about the bank forger? Why the usual way. His friends "fixed it up" and he is a free man holding a good position in town. Never laid a day In Jail, say nothing of state prison. 1 "S'sSSf lastivu). W3, altogether" two common, -i How long will the people permit such wrongs to be perpetrated in the name of justice? WAYSIDE TALK. The country at large and the mining sections in particular will be relieved as the miners go back to work. The busi ness men are watching the condition of aflairs, and taking fresh hope in every move which brings the slightest im provement in the situation. The mi ners strike has been the cause of much anxiety, and has entered largely into the present uncomfortable depres sion. Militia has been ordered out in several states, and the amount of vio lence during the past two weeks has been very considerable. With the ces sation of mining troubles will come some improvement m general business, though perhaps rather slow. We must have cheap fuel these days, and we cau not get it unless our mines can be worked properly. For instance, there were about 40 less pig iron furnaces in blast ou June 1 than on May 1, while railway earnings have decreased nearly one-fifth during May. Tha strikers gained something of an advance in wages, but the long idleness will be severely felt by them for some time to come. ' The operators have lost heavily, but, of course, have fared better than the miners, while thousands of indus tries have been indirectly affected. It is thought that the agreement between operators and miners at the Columbus convention will be ratified by the most of the district organizations. Indeed, the Pennsylvania miners are at work now and it i probable that this week will see an end of these great labor disturbances. Absolute want will com pel an agreement to the present basis of prices very soon, if no other force is brought to bear. Already the loss iu wages to the miners has been $12,500, 000, and the all round cost of the strike will reach 20,000,000. In the senate well there is some movement, for literally the grave and reverend senators have been making the wool fly. This woolen question is a hard one and will cause a good deal of unhappy feeling before it is settled to the satisfaction of both houses. The sugar question has not sweetened life any of late. In fact, it is uncomfort able all around in Washington and the hot weather is not making existence any more bearable. The sugar schedule iu the senate is getting a roasting and there is liable to be a fierce contention 0'er it one of these days. The great sugar scandal is occupying the atteutiou of the investigating committee, and there seems to be a general feeling of unworthiuess, possibly of unprofitable ness, in all this business by some of our honorable members. It is idle to spec ulate on results but in all human prob ability some sort of tariff legislation will pass both houses in the course of time ; the president win amx his signa ture to it and we shall survive the shock. It looks now as if it would be cold, bracing weather before we shall be called upon to stand up and tuke our medicine w hich is to le given in the form of taritr pills. There is plenty of time for further preparation on our'part and besides it won't be half as bitter as we thought at first. In the meantime, just note with what swiftness the American yacht Vigilant made the ocean trip preparatory to tak ing her place in the" races in British waters. Isn't it refreshing to turn from business and politics to trans-atlantic sports especially when our country is well represented there? The Vigilant was fourteen days, thirteen hours and forty-four minutes in making the voy age. This is the shortest time on rec ord made by a sloop yacht, and beats the Valkyrie over the same course. Keep your eye on the Vigilant. She was built by an American boat-builder and carries the stars and stripes. She is owned by the Gould brothers and will be sailed for all she is worth. Suc cess to the Yankee boat. The Lexow investigating committee, now in session in New York city, is unearthing some very dirty business and it would appear that the beginning of the end of Tammany misrule is at hand, judging from the testimony of witnesses who are before the committee from day to day. There is an easy way provided for those who wish to keep dens of infamy. Green goods dealers and other swindlers are allowed to ply their vocation without danger of police molestation. How is this? Simply by Eaying money for protection. When rov. Flower declared that New York was one of the best governed cities in the state, he must have been very igno rant of the' true condition of affairs there. When he vetoed the appropria tion bill of $25,000 to defray the cost of this police investigation, he must have had great faith in Tammany's honesty. However, there is nothing which can stop the whirlwind of righteous wrath of press and people w-hen once aroused. It appears that to keep a disreputable house or an unlicensed saloon in the city of New York, it is only necessary to pay the police captain in whose dis trict it is located an "initation fee" of $500 and a regular monthly sum of f 50 besides. It is not probable that this tax goes only to captains and their wardmen. There must be many strings to such a system of squeezing and by and by we shall find out how the money was distributed. It is no wonder Crok er was taken suddenly sick and forced to travel abroad. It will be strange if there is not more sickness among the chief Tammany men, for it is a mighty unhealthy time in New York for such as thev. When Dr. Parkhurst first commenced war upon protected vice ne was laugnea at Dy many good people and was poorly supported by the press, but to-day there is such a public senti ment iu lavor ot decency tnat tnere can be but one result a complete change in the city government.' Even Mayor Gil roy says the revelations, as shown up by ' tne committee, are simply snocK' ing. What will be'done about it? We shall seeif j,"5"?'';. -"-v. FROM EVERYDAY LIFE. .

Being nobody in particular, he was placed last on the list of speakers. The chairman introduced several speakers whose names were not on the .list, and the audience were tired out, "when he said : Mr. Bailey will now give us his address." "My address," said Mr. Bailey, rising, "is No. 45 Loughboro Park, Brixton Road, and I wish you all good night." Youths' Companion. An Incorruptible Public Servant Speaks "If the gambling-houses of this town," said the alderman from the 'steenth ward, red with righteous indig nation, "are held up by the police au thorities and those above them to the tune of $500 a month, I say it's an in fernal shame ! The high officials who take that money," he added, striking the dosk before him with clenched fist, "must divvy !" Chicago Tribune. The Kansas City Mail tells a story of a congressman who, having submitted himself to the manipulation of a ven erable colored barber in Washington, was told : "Do you know, sah, you re mind me so much of Dau'l Webstah?" Of course the congressman was greatly pleased at the compliment, and he smiled visibly. He would have straight ! ened up promptly had he not had his ! head in a barbarous chancery, so to speak. "Indeed," he said. "Shape of my head, 1 suppose?" This staggered the aged colored man somewhat. He had not expected a question iu reply, and had merely laid the foundation for his complimentary bluff, never think ing that there would be a call for an explanatory superstructure. "No, sah," he stammered in reply. "Not yo' head, sah. It's yo' breff." We met him in the south, a youug man with feet so drawn out of shape by rheumatism that he could walk only with great difficulty. He had wan dered from a northern home, and when we first saw him was living in a moun tain "shack." It would be hard to ex plain how he existed ; all that we know is that he did, and was not a beggar. His intelligent face was marked with lines of trouble, but he would not talk of the past, except to say that he left his home with his boyish fancy fired to succeed or die." We think he ran away ; he did not say so. Poor fellow ; success was out of the question ; he must fare badly, or give up his stubborn pride and return home, an old man at 20. a failure iu life. He always said he would stay among southern mountains, ' aud when the time came, lay down in : his wretchedness and die. Loved ones ; may be searching fur him ; hearts may : be aenmg lor the wanderer ; it is most j probably so. The miserable pride and and unsound reasoning that brings such sorrow is master of the man. Will w isdom ever come to such as he ? Per haps it may. NEWS OF THE WEEK.
