McCul lough from the governorship con test greatlv simplifies that problem, and leaves the republican party ol the state Irce to unite harmoniously on a candidate who in common with bis opponent, is worthy of their suf frage. There are those who have believed that with the Bennington man in the field energetically disput ing the prize with the St. Albanscan didate there would have resulted what the former referred to in his let ter as an "unseemly contest." Any move which tends to eliminate the risk of such a contest and the conse quent engendering of "feeling," is a move in the right direction and will have the endorsement of nine-tenths of the voters of the state. The party should not get into the tegular habit of setting up two first-class candi dates and asking thepeopletochoose as between them, when either, if brought forward alone, would be fully acceptable to the voters. Col. Smith's candidacy has been growing in favor rapidly within the past few weeks, and he now bids fair to be the unanimous choice of the conveniion. His personal and busi ness qualities unite to make bim a candidate for whom no excuses need be made, and the fact that he is gen erally endorsed by the business inter ests of the state is significant of the public faith in his fitness for the position. County Politics. Our editorial last week on county politics was widely read and the republicans are already freely dis cussing the county ticket. Our list last week was not at all in the nature of a slate, but merely the suggestion of men who have been considered desirable candidates lor the various positions. To that list can be added this week the name ol Salma Davis of Sheffield for side judge, as the delegates from the northern part of the county are coming into the convention to sup port Mr. Davis for that office. He is a prosprrous farmer who has long been honored with various town offices and has twice represented Sheffield in the legislature. It has been many years since Sheffield has had a place on the county ticket and if the convention saw fit to nominate Mr. Davis for side judge they would make a most excellent selection. The Message. On pages six and seven of this issue of the Caledonian will be found President MtKinley's message to congress on Monday. It is a care fully written and strong document. It will not quite satisfy those who wanted war and nothing but war, but it will be commended bv all who have not wanted war if it were pos sible to adjust this matter without so harsh and desolating a remedy. The message is strong in that while it upholds the honor and dignity ol the nation it believes in the possibil ity of an amicable arrangement and makes recommendations in that di rection. it will be read with inter est ; and the country as a whole will devoutly hope that the president and congress will be able to dispel the war cloud ami effect a settlement that will be creditable to this coun try, to Spain, and the Cubans them selves. It tnkts something more than a war scare to disturb those apostles of free silver, Bryan and Williams, or interlere with the promulgation of their favorite doctrine. They are talking away glibly to whomsoever will listen. What with the disturbances in the Pbili ppine Islands, the feverish anxi ety of Japan to get another bold on the Asiatic continent, the threaten ingsof Mauna Loa to give the peo ple of the Hawaiian Islands a Pora peiian dose of lava and ashes, and the peculiarly strained relations be tween Uncle Sam and the Spanish Don, these are troublous times in deed. 0. M. Barber ol Arlington hasbeen "mentioned" for state auditor by the Essex Record. As Senator Barber was Gen. McCullough's manager the friends of McCullough throughout the state are expected tosupport Mr. Barber for auditor. This is on the principle of "you scratch my back and I'll scratchyours," but the friends oftheprcstnt incumbent, Frank D. Hale of Lunenburg, will hardly be caught with such logic. The fact that Germany has shut out from her ports of entry all fruits and living plants from the United States that have not been previous ly inspected by experts and pro nounced free from inspection by the San Jose scale or shield louse, has created some commotion among fruit raisers in this country; but a writer in the North American Re view asserts that the fact that so many states have recognized the the existence of this pest and legislat ed against it gives Germany an ex cellent excuse for her action. The Burlington Free Press recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary and the turning of the half century by our illustrious contemporary de serves more than passing notice.. The Free Press is the ideal Vermont daily. It covers the local and state field with remarkable fullness and accuracy and its editorial utterances are always on the side of truth and justice, and when so many Vermont papers are trying to destroy the effectiveness ol the prohibitory law the Free Press supports the law as it exists on the statutes. The paper has been owned for many years by Col. G. G. Benedict, the veteran in Vermont journalism, and in Manag ing EJitor Southwick and Business Manager Howe he has the two brightest young newspaper men in the state. Governorship Talk. In a lengthy und interesting article on the witliuiavwil of Gen. J. G. McCullough from the gubernatorial ruec E .itor Hays ol the Iisi-x Record niter congratulating 12. C. Smith upon the outcome ot tiie pre liminary contest proceeded to make a number of statements which included the following: "Perlmps the strangest element of nil thai enters iiuo the situation is the men tion ol the name of Hon. Carroll S. Page ol Hyde Park, the ex-governor, to slepin where Gen. McCullough lelt off and carry the fight on against the remaining candi date. This intimation comes irom a prominent politician ot Burlingitm with whom I talked on Tuesday." In order to set at rest any uncertainty in the direction indicated the Free Press promptly sent a telegram to ex Gov. Page asking him to make h statement of the laets in the case and ol' his position. Ex-Gov. Page responded as follows: Col. Smith is today my candidate for governor. If, as you wire me, some paper has mentioned my name in connec tion with the nomination I regret it ex ceedingly. Under no conditions that I can at present conceive to be possible would 1 consent to the use ot my name in this connection. Gen. McCullough has won the iiclmirntion and respect ot the best citizens ol Vermont by ending what gave promise ol being a most unpleasant and unhealthy contest. I aoopt heartily the closing sentence of his letter ot with drawal und with him "Recognize as par amount the importance ot avoiding at this time every semblance of party dis sension." CAKkULL S. PAGE. Press Comment. The Springfield Republican notes that the portrait of the governor of Vermont appears in the newspapers in connection with an advertisement ot a patent medicine, which that official endorses, and asks ii his sal ary is such that be is compelled to piece it out in this manner. A per tinent inquiry. But if investigation shall show that Vermont is culpable in not payingasalary suthcient toen able the governor to live without en doring patent medicines, then will the United States government come under censure for not paving its Con gressmen more. Both Congressmen ot this state, in company with those Irom several other states, make sini ilar recommendations. We are in dined to believe that it is not poverty, but policy, which leads our politicians to make use at this time ol any means ol keeping their names and leatures ln-lore the oublic f Montpelier Argus. The democrats of Caledonia county, ol whom there are several, want x-rcpres-entivc Davis ot D inville as the party's candidate for lieutenant-governor. George B. Davis is an old lashioned, case hardened Jacksonian democrat, a banker and the leading citizen rf his town and section, and has honored his p?rty more than it can honor him. John E. Harris in the Burlington Cupper. W. P. Stafford ot St. Johnsburv, with whom many Burlmgtonians have become pleasantly acquainted during the past lew months, is men tioned as one of the senators Irom Caledonia county. He is a man ot great ability and the highest char acter and the county and the state will be well served it the choice falls on bim. Burlington News. Sundry Observations. It has been mighty interesting if we may be allowed the use of an every day sort of phrase to watch the course of events at Washington, both inside and outside of Congress, and note the antics and utterances of the hot-heads who have been doiug their best (or worst) to throw this country into war. "Jingoism" has bad an emphatic exemplification, and that term was never so repulsive to the sober, well-meaning thought of the people as now. It was a for tunate thing for the nation that the hot-heads at the national capital the men who sought to extract from the serious situation something by way of personal or party aggrandize ment were in the minority, and that President McKinley, in his purpose to make baste slowly had really a strong majority back of bim. If the hot-beads in this country and in Spain could have bad their way, the deep, damning calamity of war would have been upon us two months ago. It is the hot-head that makes trouble, in nation, state, county or town, nine times out of ten. The Ilispano-American misunder standing has started upasmallarmy of terms concerning the significance of which people in general were, not posted ; and we know ot one man at least who has discovered that "Cuban Junta" is not the name of a newspaper. It is the man wborunshisbusiness, his politics, his religion and his pleasures on the high pressure plan that collapses long before he ought to in the natural order of events. There is nothing absolutely new about this suggestion, but lots of men and women even in our own small com munity may wisely give new heed to it. A Montgomery patriot has impor tuned Gov. Grout for the privilege of raising a company of men from that town in case of war. That sec tion of the state, with its army of butter tub makers, ought to be able to turn out a "staving" good fight ing torce. However, as no Spanish Armada could succeed in getting up Trout river, on account of so much sawdust in that stream, Montgom ery is safe enough from foreign inva sion. Travelers who stop at the Pemige wassett House at Plymouth now find there Mine Host Elliott, who has been running the Hotel Barton at Barton for some time past. The secret of Elliott's success is disclosed by this comment, overheard a few days ago: "He's a hotel man, beis!" If nobody can quite see just what was aimed at in theeditorial, "Some thing that Hurts," in last week's Caledonian, why just make a gen eral application of it, and you'll not go far wrong, dear reader. Passengers over the Concord divi sion ot the lioston 6s Maine road who come within the "schedule time" covered by Conductor Mann in his trips back and forth do not hesitate to comment on the kindly attention bestowed by him upon the wayfaring man, woman or child. Pointing out bits ol specially attrac tive scenery en route, explaining this or that to the stranger whois taking his first journey through this beauti ful section of country, answering promptly and patiently the hundred-and-one inquiries put to bim; these and other good offices seem to be directly in Conductor Mann's line, From generation to generation the taint of impure blood is transmitted, and in tho samo way tho beneficial blood-purifying effects of Hood's Sar- Iftparilla nro spread through families. If the life stream is purified at its source, or immediately when evidence of impurity first appears, much suffer injr will bo avoided. The beneficent work of Hood's Sursaparilla for young women, wives, mothers and little ones of all nges has won tho highest praise, la America's Greatest Medicine, A m ood 8 and add greatly to the comfort and pleasure of his passengers. The man to whom, in any walk of life, these so-called "little things" come easy, contributes beyond measure to the well-being of his fellows. VERMONT NEWS. Several gentlemen interested in the building of an electric road from White hall, N. Y., to West Pawlet, met last week. Before undertaking the project, $19,000 of the capital stock must be paid in. Whitehall has already raised $9200 and Granville $4000 and it is thought the balance will soon be raised in the two towns. The estimated cost of the road is $30,000. Edward M. Guernsey of Montpelier died of heart disease Thursday. He was 60 years old and his death was quite a shock to the town. For nearly 50 years he has been connected with the Lane Manufacturing Company and wassupcr intendent at the time ot his death. Mrs. Elizabeth Child Woodward, wife of Arthur L. Weeks, died at her home in St. Albans Thursday evening about 9 o'clock, after an illness of about a week with pneumonia. Mrs. Weeks was born in Bakersfield in 1856 and was the only daughter of Dr. and Mrs. R. C. M. Wood ward. Her husband is well-known throughout the state as a deputy inter nal revenue collector. The bids for the Chicago post office which is to be built of granite, were opened last week at the treasury depart ment at Washington. There were 16 bids in all, including only three from Vermont. The three bids were More & Co., $2,500,000; Fletcher Granite Co., $3,000,000; Woodbury Granite Co., $2,600,000. The Vermont delegation in congress has interested itself in the mat ter and will try to bring the contract to Vermont. It requires 500,000 cubic feet of granite and to cut it would keep 400 men at work two years. Rev W. A. B. Flanders, D. D of St. Albans died at 11 o'clock April 5, aged 74. Dr. Flanders whs rector at St. Luke's Episcopal church to which he was called seven years ago. His only previ ous charges were at Chester and White River Junction. Dr. Flanders leaves a wife and six children, three sons and three daughters, only one of whom was with him at the time of death. The village of Middleburv has voted a 10 year contract for 25 street lights of 2000 cam le power to run until midnight, the cost not to exceed $60 a light. The Rutland railroad will issue about May 1 an art supplement to the "Heart of the Green Mountains," which was gotten out last year. The supplement will contain abou t 50 pages of hah tones, seven by nine inches in kize, and will not be accompanied by letter press. The pictures will include views about Lake Chaplain and Lake Bomoseen and some mountain scenery. Barre will have a first class base ball team this summer. The plan on which the men are working is to have a hase b ill park built about half way between Barre and Montpelier on the line of the electric railroad, and to have Mont pelier engage a team, then let both teams play all games on the proposed grounds The citizens ot Barre have voted to have a $30,000 city building to replace the one that was burned. Middlebury has signed contracts whereby the Brandon Italian Marble Company's works, whose shops were re cently destroyed at Brandon by fire have agreed to erect their new shops at Mid dlebury. The company employ someone hundred skilled workmen and their pay roll averages $60,000 a year. Burlington will have some first-class operas as the guarantee has been sub scribed by music loving people. The lollowing changes have occurred at the Vermont soldiers home since Jan. 1: Admitted 16, discharged 4, died 3, lurloughed 9, returned Irom furlough 7, total membership March 31, 112, present 94. The National American Woman Suf frage association during the months of April and May, will hold a series of con lerences in the different New England states which is to extend to every state in the Union. That for Vermont will be held in Burlington May 9 aud 10. Eminent speakers will be present, includ ing Susan B. Anthony, Rev. Anua H. Shaw aud others. With Col. E C. Smith and Tho mas W. Moloney the only surviving candidates for the nomination for governor at the hands of their re spective parties, it is not impossible that we may look for a revival ol the intense rivalry which existed be tween St. Albans and Rutland in the halcvon days of the Vermont base ball 'league.

I was given a prescription for salt rheum, but found it hurt my nursing baby and I stopped taking it.

BROOKS, Artist - Tailor Snowsllde on the Chilkoot Trail. A dispatch from Skaguay, by way of Seattle, Wash., says thai at about noon ol the 2d on the Chilkoot trail at least 50 men met death und a large number ol ot ers were injured more or less seri ously in a snow slide. The dead were crushed under an avalanche of snow and ice which came down from the mountain sidi upon the lelt of the trail, midway between the Scales and Stone house. Thousands of people were encamped near the scene ol the accident and were soon rendering assistance. Five thousand people were at work on the debris and were in each other's way. All day Sat urday and Sunday a southerly storm with rain, wind and snow prevailed in that vicinity, and it is believed the soft ening of the snow on the mountain side was the cause ot the avalanche. The quantity of snow and icethatcamedown in the slide is estimated at thousands of tons. It swept across the trail, which wasthrongid with waylarers. Where the trail lay is now a mountain of snow and ice, under which are many bodies that cannot be recovered for days to come. Later advices from Skaguay say9 that it is now believed that 75 or 100 people were killed in the slide. Twenty- two hodies have been recovered and identified, and 25 were brought out alive.
