THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, APRIL 6, 1898.
Gen. McCullough Withdraws. A gubernatorial campaign which prom ised to afford an interesting struggle be tween Col E. C. Smith of St. Albans and Gen. J. C. McCullough of Bennington for the republican nominal ion for governor has been suddenly deprived ol its feat ores of rivalry by the withdrawal ol Gen. McCullough. The following letter ap peared in yesterday's Burlington Free Press: Editor of the Free Press: My Dear Sir My name has been men tioned inquently during the past lew months as a cundidaie at the coming convention tor the republican nomina tion tor the high office ol governor of Vermont; and 1 have received many as surances of support Irom leading repub licans in all parts of the slate, such aa would justify me in expecting the nom ination. My position Irom the first has been that if it should come to me with reasonable approach to unanimity in the convention and with general approval among the people, I should esteem it a bih honor aud should gratefully accept it. But I am not willing to engage in an unseemly contest, such as appears now to be probable. I do not think that a struggle ol that sort, as it might come to be conducted, would be creditable to the state or beneficial to the republican party. More especially in the present year, when the country is confronted by some ol the gravest and most perplexing problems in its history, and when it is most important that the party should be strongly united in support ol the present adminihtrution and its measuies. To these it will be the privilege of the re publicans ol Vermont to give their first emphatic approvul in the lull elections, then by inspiring other states to the lull perioimancc o' their duty, as the ringing voice irom the Vermont hills has so oiten done in the past, when voters elsewhere have seemed to falter upon national issms ol vital importance to the republic. 1 must therefore decline to be rearded as a candidate, or to throw any obstacle in the way ol entire harmony in the party. In taking this course I wish to assure my Inends throughout the state that I am in no sense ungratelul to them for their confidence and proffered support, which has placed me under obligations 1 can never loiget, but I believe that with me they will recognize as paramount the importance ol avoiding at thistimeevery semblance ol party dissension. I am, Yours very trulv, J. G. McCULLOUGH. North Benninyton, Vt.. April 4, 1898. Gov. Grout to the President. The following is a copy ot a letter sent to President McKinlcy from Gov. Grout: To Hon. William McKinley, President of the United States, Washington, D. C: Dear Sir: From a raretul observation of the diffetences between the United States and Spain I have thought they could and would be adjusted amicably according to international requirements ordinarily governing such matters, so I have not heretolore lelt called upon to communicate with you upon the subject, Prelerring honoruble peace to war it did not, to me, seem difficult for this govern ment to make such a demand in the premises as would accomplish what we desire and secure what Cuba so rightly deserves, such a demand as would satis'y Spain and the civilized powers ol the world, thus honorable alike to all con cerned and peaceably meeting the pres ent crisis. II, however, negotiations luil and war becomes the "ultimatum," Ver mont would have you know that she is ready to do her part in securing the ob jects lor which it is declared and a res toration of peace. You can depend upon the support of our people to the extent of their ability and I shall hope to know early what the exigency of the service may require of us. Commending the wisdom and humanity of your patriotic course and sincerely hoping war may yet be avoided, I am with high personal es teem, respectlully, JOSIAH GROUT, Governor. Derby, April 4,1898.

A dictionary containing the definitions 0110,000 ol the most uselul and minor tant words in the English language, is published by the Dr. Williams Medic ne Co., bchenectady, N. Y. While it con tains some advertising, it is a complete dictionary, concise and correct. In compiling this book care has been taktn to omit none of those common words whose spelling or exact use occa sions at times a momentary difficuliy, even to well educated people. The main aim has leen to give as much useful in formation as possible in a limited soace, With this in view, where noun, adjective and verb are all obviously connected in meaning, usually one only has been in serted, the volume will thus be found to contain the meaning of very many more words thaj it nrolesses to exnlain. To those who already have a diction ary, tms Dook will commend itself be cause it is compact, light and convenient; to those who have no dictionary what ever, it will be invaluable.

An effort will be made this year to strengthen the power of the republican party in this town by harmonizing all conflicting interests and presenting a solid front at the local and state con ventions. Lyndon is now the 11th town in the state and second in Caledonia county, yet it has never had any influ ence in politics because everybody was woiking at cross purposes. From 254 votes cast for the republican ticket in 1894 the party strength has grown to 321 which was the number ol votes cast lor Gov. Grout. By uniting on any measures or candidates in the coming locul and state campaigns the party can exert a power lar beyond anything at tempted in the past. Good Templars' Anniversar.
