more, his resignation taking effect the
second Sunday in Advent. He has
been with St. Andrews church about a
year, coming here from Rich ford in
December, 1887. He leaves St. Johns
bury because of no unpleasantness, for
he has the united support of his
church, but because the offer of a larger
salary at Burlington will enable him
to oetier care for las family.

Used to the Business.
The candles used in illuminating the
residence of Dea. L. G. Spencer on
Summer street Thursday evening were
used to the business, inasmuch as they
were the same candles, or what was
left of tho candles, used in illumina
ting Dea. Spencer's house at the time
of Lee's surrender over 20 years .ago.
This accounts for the remarkably bril
liant .appearance of Summer street dur
ing the celebration.
Concerning Snow Rollers.
These quite frequent snow squalls
thus early in the season bring to mind
the vote of tho town at the annual
March meeting instructing the select
men to look into and consider the
matter of snow-rollers. The select
men have done some corresponding iu
relation to tho matter and will proba
bly give the rollers a trial this winter.
It is also understood that the village
trustees will try the experiment of
snow-roller paths in this village. It is
to be hoped that the business will not
be postponed too long. If snow rollers
are to be given a fair trial thev should
be ready for use with the first storm.

EIGHT YEARS IN PRISON.
Ward lleeeivea Sentence. A
Review of the Case.
Thomas Ward of St. Johnsbury was
on Friday sentenced to a term of eight
years at hard labor in Windsor state
prison for arson. The sentence was
delivered by Chief Justice Iloyce, all
the judges concurring, though it is
said that some of them thought the
sentence should have been for a long
er time. When asked if he had any
thing to say why sentence should not
be passed Mr. Ward .answered in the
negative, and heard the announcement
with no outward signs of feeling, save
that he paled a little under it. He
was taken at once to Windsor where
he is now working out his sentence.
Mr. Ward is G3 years old and will
consequently be 71 should he live un
til tlie expiration of his sentence. It
has been generally expected among
those who knew him and were familiar
with the case, that he would disappear
when tho time came for sentence to be
passed aud would forfeit his bail.' Un
doubtedly he has taken the wiser
course. His block on Railroad street
was mortgaged for $0000 to protect his
bondsmen, B. G. Howe and Sias Ran
dall. Iu addition to this the property
is attached for 10,000 to protect Har
vey Foster's suit for damages, which
comes iip for trial, by the way, iu the
December term of the county court.
Mr. Ward has some other property,
but by the time these claims were sat
isfied he would hardly be in good shape
to start in life again, especially as the
laws of the state are such that even af
ter forfeiting his bonds ho could be
seized at any time, if found, brought
into court and sentenced. Probably
he calculates that his chances of getting
sick and being pardoned out before the
expiration of his sentence, as has been
the case with so many others, are
It is so rarely that a man of means
is brought to justice for his misdemean
ors and this case has attracted so
much interest and attention during the
past three years, that a brief review of
the facts will be of interest:
Thomas Ward was arrested and had
a hearing before Magistrate Johnson
u February, 18SG, charged with burn-
ug Harvey Foster's baru in Walden,
Jan. 20, 188G. Previous to this Ward
uid become enamored of one Olivia
Amsdeu, an adopted daughter of Pos
er's, had threatened injury to Foster
n various ways, and, it was believed,
fired the barn out of revenge, because
Foster discouraged the girl's marrying
him. It appeared iu evidence that an
unsuccessful attempt was made just
four weeks previous to the fire to burn
this same barnr and that on that night
and also on the night when the barn
was destroyed, Ward took an all-night
drive and could not or did not satis
factorily account for his absence.
riiero were other circumstances tend
ing to fasten suspicion on him, that
were not explained away.
At the above hearing Ward was
bound up under $500 bonds. At the
Juue term of the county court he was
indicted for arson. At tho December
term he demurred to the indictment on
the ground of irregularity in empan-
nelling the grand jury. The demurrer
was over-ruled aud the case went to
the supreme court on that question in
Nov. 1 887. The supreme court affirm
ed the judgment of the lower court and
sent the case back for trial on its mer
its. At the December term of tho
county court in 1887 a jury trial was
held before Judge Veazey continuing
for over two weeks, the longest trial
iu the history of the court, resulting iu
verdict of guilty, the jury being
out about four hours. The case was
then passed on to the supreme term in
May 1888 and continued to the general
term this month, when all the judges
sat upon it, the decision of the lower
court was affirmed and the final sen
tence pronounced. The case was first
brought by States Attorney Montgom
ery and was conducted through from
cue oeginning oy n. u. ide, who was
At V V -W
assisted at the trial by Lawyer Prouty
of Newport. The defence was con
ducted by Bates & May, who were as
sisted at the trial by Judge Thompson
of Irasburg and lawyers Lam son and
iJiougeii. iriKen aitogetner it was
one of the most interesting and closely
contested cases in the history of Cale
donia county court.
A Birthday Party.
Miss Mary Jane Gentry, daughter of
Henry Gentry, celebrated her 15th
birthday anniversary Tuesday. In the
evening 15 of her schoolmates gathered
at her home, each - girl bringing a
present. Besides these she received a
pretty gold watch, the presentation
speech being made by Miss Clara
Wheeler, the music teacher. The vis
itors were served to a supper with the
customary birthday cake aud all had a
very merry time.

ST. JOHNSBURY CELEBRATES
The Election of Harrison and Morton.
What was intended to be a Caledo
nia county celebration of the republi
can victory took place here Thursday
evening. Preparations had been made
for one of tho most elaborate affairs of
the kind ever known in this county.
Word had been received that a mount
ed company would come from Dan
ville ; extra trains were to run in from
the surrounding country and pretty
nearly everybody, democrats and all,
showed a disposition to help along and
to make the jollification a grand suc
cess. But the clerk of the weather in
terfered. It rained all day and until
after the festivities were over in the
evening. . The program was carried
out, however, aud with remarkable
success considering the circumstances.
- At V o'clock, the appointed hour, the
torch-light procession was formed and
marched down North Main street and
thence to Railroad street and up East
ern avenue to Main street again. The
academy boys turned out iu very good
numbers, there were some enthusiastic
republicans iu the company, but the
small boy predominated. Some of the
transparancies were very good. The
republican bird was there, a regular
high stepper; Grover's pension vetoes
were noted, while he himself was pic
tured as the going and Gen. Harrison
as the coming man, in another scene
G rover was represented as fishing on
Memorial day with a patch ou his pan
taloons very like a portion of the Eng
lish flag, and there were various take
offs on Sackville-West, the old Roman,
etc., etc. Huge bon-fires were burned
ou Main street at the head of Easteru
avenue, on Railroad street and else
where. There was a generous display
of Roman caudles, rockets, bombs, etc.,
and Capt. G lis wold handled with
marked success the cannon that had
been brought over from Morrisville and
was stationed on Boy n ton hill, boom
ing forth the joy of the multitude at
The illuminations, not dependent on
weather, were very fine. Nearly every
business house and store in town, as
well as the public buildings and resi
dences were ablaze with light. Fes
toons oi (Jniuese lanterns were sus
pended in front of the buildings and
pictures of the successful caudidates,
transparancies and mottoes were every
where to be seen. A noticeable fea
ture of these decorations was the fact
that some of the best displays were
made by democrats, who took their
defeat with great good nature, aud
showed a determination to make the
affair a success whether it celebrated
defeat or victory.
After the out door show was over a
fair number for so bad a night gather
ed in Music hall, where the St. Johns
bury band gave a fine concert under
tho direction of its efficient leader, W.
II. Ilerrick, and then Judge Smith
called to order, delivered a short but
pithy and tiniel3? address and intro
duced Congressman Grout, who con
sidered some of the live questions
growing out of the republican victory,
the events that had led up to it, the
responsibilities that it thrust upon the
party and the duty of all republicans
to the party and to the country. That
there would be a republican majority
in the House he was confident ; it
would be a barren victory without
Captain II. C. Parsons of Natural
Bridge, Virginia, was the next speaker.
Though the hour was lato those were
well rewarded who remained to hear
an intelligent and exceedingly inter
esting account of many of the phases
of Virginia and West Virginia politics,
from one who has spent years in the
work of solving tho Southern problem
from a Southern standpoint. Captain
Parson's idea is that the next alliance
which is to control the politics of the
future and the destiny of the nation in
the South is between the Union and
the Confederate soldiers, who are
there, he maintains, joining hands in
the furtherance of such principles as
will tend not to build up the fortunes
of a class, but the fortunes of the state
and common people. His address was
most encouraging, especially for the
republicans who have been seeking,
praying and working to break up the
During the evening capital songs
were rendered by the Glee club who
were responding to a vociferous encore
at II p. m. when the scribe retired.
Sixty-four of tho lo3'al citizens of the
place, including both sexes, met at the
St. Johnsbury house for a social inter
view, and at half-past seven Bat down
to a royal supper furnished for the oc
casion by Landlord Krogman. The
menu was unique as well as appetiz
ing, including all the substantial from
oysters on the "deep" shell to free
trade turkey with English sauce, a la
Sackville-West. The broken-South
down mutton was relishing, and the
successful -canvass back duck number
one. Those who voted early and often
amused themselves while waiting for
further "returns" by sampling the
Harrison pudding with Prohibition
sauce, election and Morton cake and
Rome Hoosier pie. The supper was in
every way an excellent one and well

The Thomson-Houston folks are
right on hand with their men and ma

tion of the new system of lights. The
documents sent up from the home of
fice were not fully satisfactory to the
board of village trustees and have not
been signed, so the business is uot fully
completed, but no doubt is expressed
as to the final and satisfactory conclu
sion of the whole matter as soon as the
home oflice can be reached. The

Thirty-seven arc and five incandes
cent lights will be put in instead of
the 33 contracted for, the company be
lieving that the village cannot bo well
ighted short of that number, and
"throwing in" at their own expense the
extra four arc and the incandescent
ights for the first year, to show their
idea of how the village should be
ighted. Next year the old contract
holds for only 20 arc lights for the
$1300 appropriated and $70 for each
additional light as was stated last week.
The village trustees have located
the lights as nearly as is practicable.
When the actual work of putting up
the poles begins, the foliage, etc., in
liferent localities may necessitate
some changes. In some instances the
amps will be suspended over the
streets instead of being put upon poles.

ights as at present fixed :

It was voted to extend the limits of
the society by including Lamoille and
Orange counties iu Vermont, Coos
county in N. II., and Stanstead county

desire to uuite. The place of the next

Would it not be worth while for St.
Johnsbury to offer some inducements
for the permanent location of the so
ciety here! To be sure they had hard
luck this fall, but the people would
certainly see to it that they were bet

MISS MARY HOWE'S FAREWELL
On Tuesday evening the people of
Brattleboro gave Miss Mary Howe a
most cordial and enthusiastic greeting
at her last public appearance before
sailing for Europe. Every Beat in the
large hall was sold and some were dis
appointed in being unable to obtain a
it place. Miss Howe was assisted by
ier brother, Lucien Howe, accompa
nist and composer; Mrs. E. R. Pratt,
contralto, the friend and playmate of
ier girlhood days; Myron W. Whit
ney, the great basso, and the Beethov-
eu orchestra of Boston. Tlie program
was a varied one, but had no cheap or
trashy numbers. Miss Howe's first and
every appearauce during tho evening
was greeted with tho heartiest ap
plause, aud she shared with Mrs. Pratt
most elegant floral tributes. Miss
lowe's appearance on tho stage was
artless and natural, as might be ex
pected of tho sensible girl she is. If
any one present was under the impres
sion that she excelled as a singer only
n vocal gymnastics and brilliant lire-
works, that impression was thorough-
y dispelled when she rendered the
iiich-Gounod arrangeinont of "Ave
Maria" with an appreciation and pa
thos that thrilled the audience like an
By the arrangement of tho progiam
Miss Howe sang the last number. Iu
espouse to an encore which admitted
of no refusal, she re-appeared before
the footlights, and when the accompa
nist struck into "Sweet Home," the
iiudienco burst into enthusiastic ap
plause. This exceedingly warm rec
ognition and appreciation by an audi
euce of her townspeople was almost
too much for the singer's nerve, and it
was with evident effort she controlled
ier voice and began "'Mid pleasures
mil palaces." Before the first verse
was finished her eye caught sight of
ier weeping mother and 6ister iu the
audience and her emotions overcoming
ier she burst into tears and covering
her face with her hands left the stage.
The audience quietly withdrew from
the hall aud will have this final dra
matic scene to remember while the
chief actor is across the sea adding to

riie other artists in this excellent
concert deserve especial mention, but
there is no space for further comment
at this late hour. One thing that im
pressed me was the warm appreciation

years employed iu Fairbanks store and
previous to that employed for a time
at the Scale works, died at the home
of his parents at South Albany on Fri
lay after a month's illness of typhoid
fever, age 27. Mr. Patterson's busi
ness was such that it brought him into
relation with many people of the place,
and his circle of acquaintances and
frieuds was very large. When taken
sick and on leaving the store for his
old home he expressed his belief that
he would not recover and such proved
to be the case. His father and mother
as well as a sister are living. Funeral
services were held at South Albany
Monday. A number of elegant floral
tributes were sent from St. Johnsbury,

was a member, from Hose Company

The general committees of the sen
ate aud house held a joint hearing last
week on the bill to set oil' the town o
Greensboro from Orleans to Caledonia
rounty. The Mont pclier Journal gives
this itMi t of the discussion :
Tlw bill was favored by Hiram A.
Hus, Esq., of Mont pel ier and opposed
by Litwycr Young of Newport. Wit
nesses wore present who testified in re
gard to (he condition of the roads lead
ing to Newport and St. Johusbury, the
county seats of the two counties, the
sunomit of business done by the people
f Greensboro at St. Johusbury aud
Newport and the wishes of the citizens
in regard to the matter. The support
ers of the measure claim that the road
to Newport is difficult to travel, that
St. Johnsbury is much more easy of ac
cess by railroad, that the majority of
the business of Greensboro is done at
the latter place and that the town
-would be better con ven ienced by hav
ing this place as its county seat rather
than Newport. The opponents of the
measure slate that the road to St.
Johnsbury may be a little shorter than
to Newport, but that it is hilly aud
(bitted in winter, and that for all busi
ness in the courts Greensboro is far
lietter accommodated in Orleans than
would be possible in Caledonia county.
A etilioii praying for the passage of
the bill has been placed in the hands
of the committee signed by one hun

also a remonstrance signed by seventy
