The Caledonian has received a letter from a prominent Windham county republican calling attention to an editorial the in Bellows Falls Times endorsing Hon. VV, P, Dilling ham for the House as the representa tive from this district. The gentle man says that the north part of Windham county is very much in earnest in its opposition to the can didacy of Col. Kittredge Haskins of Brattleboro and the republicans of that section are very friendly to Gov. Dillingham. If the latter becomes a candidate for the House it will not only incidentally settle t'ae senatorial question but prevent a bitter fight in the republican ranks in the second district. Here is the Times article in full : The name of Hon. W. P. Dillingham as congressman from the second district of Vermont is a winner, and one that should satisfy all parties, appease all factions and give the state able representation in congress. Mr. Dillingham has been a candidate for Mr. Morrill's seat in the Senate, and while we are not aware he himself has ever made any public avowal, some of the newspapers supposed to be friendly to his candidacy havestated that nothing le&Bthan a seat in the Senate would be accepted or even considered. Until Mr. Dillingham himself is heard from, we shall consider the newspapers in error. Mr, Dillingham's ambition is laudable, and in every way worthy of one of the ablest and most respected citizens of the state, but we cannot believed the honored ex governor will let hispersonalambition stand in theway of Disown best interests and those of our own good state. With the other candidates in the field for senatorial honors, if Mr. Dillingham continues to be a candidate there is sure to be a hard fight with the chances very much against him. Send Mr. Dillingham to the House now and at the proper time his friends can come before the legislature and say this senator has been courteously treated and sufficiently honored and we present for bis successor the name of a candidate who has had congressional experience and who is in every way worthy and well qualified. Mr. Dillingham has many warm friends in this section of the state and in the event of his permitting the use of his name as a candidate for congress he will receive the hearty and general support of all parts ol the state. Mr. Dillingham can be elected to the House without raising a finger, but whether he can be elected to the Senate at this time, even after a most stubborn fight is exceedingly doubtful. Will he and his friends accept the honor which the second district will gladly conlcr? We believe they will. The Elections. Interest in the elections last week Tuesday centred in two states, Ohio and Nebraska, where it was under stood that the result would seriously affect the presidential chances of Mc Kinley and -Bryan. The result did not surprise shrewd politicians ns the republicans carried Ohio by the large majority of 50,000 and the fusionist ticket in Nebraska endorsed Bryan by about 10,000 majority So as far as the presidential race is concerned no new features have as yet entered into the contest. The re suit in Ohio is a splendid endorse ment of the President's foreign policy, and the anti-imperialists of Massachusetts find cold comfort in a republican majority of G5.000 and the defeat of State Senator Parsons, a leader in the senate who conducted his campaign solely on the anti-im perial platform. State tickets were voted for in nine states, of which the republicans carried six Massachusetts, Pennsyl vania, Ohio, Kentucky, Iowa and South Dakota while the democrats carried only three Maryland, Mississippi and Nebraska. The re publicans lost control of Maryland, which they carried in the previous election, but this disaster i9 offset by the gain of South Dakota, which the Bryanites carried in both the last national contest and in the preceding state election. Of the three states in which Legislatures were elected without state tickets, the republi cans carried New York and New Jersey, while the democrats carried Virginia. Taking it all around tile republi cans have more than held their own for an "off" year and have secured Kentucky in the South. The party is in excellent shape for a national victory next fall and President Mc Kinley seems destined to succeed himself. ' . An Ungrateful View. There are nicks in the tail of the British lion. Everv Boer bullet makes a crevace in the appendage and the old beast is down on his luck, Vermonters arn't shedding any tears, either! Essex Courier. The above represents an opinion which one occasionally see9 in the American press and it is just possible that some of the readers of the Cale donian agree with it. If so it is a pity that they have forgotten their friends so soon. When the war broke out between Spain and the United States there was not a friendly note of sympathy for our country in any paper on the continent. More than that the papers correctly rtfl.ctedthe opinions of the financial and business interests of the continent. We had but one friend in all that struggle and that was England. She was a tower of strength at a time when we were weak. And at the close of the war when Russia, Germany and France had planned to rob us of the fruits of our victories and divide up the islands of the sea among them selves, as Senator Lodge points out in his history of the war, our old friend England served a notice on the continental powers that if they at tempted to take away our newly-ac quired territory John Bull would step into the ring and take a hand in the fight. And so after peace was de clared we were indebted to England for the preservation of our rights. England is fighting in the Trans vaal for the liberty not only of her subjects, but for the thousands of Americans who have made a home in South Africa, and every English soldier who lalls in that struggle is sacrificing his life, as the Marquis of Salisbury said last week, "for equal rights (or all men of all races." The Samoan Settlement. The tripartite arrangement for the management of the Samoan islands has been terminated, England relin quishes all rights to the islands and they are divided up between Germany and the United States. The United States gets a half a dozen islands, in cluding Tutuila, which contains the harbor of Pago Pago generally con sidered by naval experts the finest harbor in the Pacific ocean. The United States has already appro priated a half a million dollars for building docks at this harbor and gets by the trade a new "possession" in the Pacific. Germany gets among other islands the one which contains Apia, which is the only place of any commercial importance in the whole group. TbismeansthatGermany will retain the commercial supremacy of theislands which she hasalways suc cessfully maintained. Since the Spanish war the United States has leaped by one bound into the arena of European politics and diplomacy and this is the first time we have ever been consulted by the great monarchies as to the disposi tion of territory. The full signifi cance of such a confidential relation with the continental powers cannot be realized by the average American and the London correspondent of the New York Tribunecommcntson such relationship as follows: "Diplomatists here assume with confi dence that England has not sacrificed American friendship or interests in the Snmoan settlement, and that the parti tion of territory between the United Slates and Germany has rrccived the sanction of the three Powers concerned in the tripartite convention which had ceased to ben practical method of gov erning the group. Leader writers lor the press take this view, and also forecast a hearty German co operation in the State Department's new policy requiring European guarantees for an open door in the Far East and equality ol commer cial privileges for nil maritime nations. This view is justified by the latest dis patches from Berlin. Everything, indeed, points to the full accord ol the three Powers in nil these arrangements. The German Emperor, warned last year that his attitude toward America has helped to bring the United States nnd England into close and friendly relations, has made approaches to both, and the three greatest indus'rinl commercial nations of the world are now brought into a cir cle of good feeling nnd common interests without n formal convention or an en tanglingnlliunce." Senator Carter of Montana, who bought his seat in the United States Senate, was fined $1.00 in Helena last week for expectorating on the sidewalk. If he does this in Wash ington he cannot expect to rate as a gentleman. Haw's This We offer One Hundred Dollars Reward forandenseof Catarrh that cannot be cured by Hall s Catarrh Cure, SWITZERLAND REVISITED. (Editorial Correspondence.) I came back to Geneva from Frank furt about the middle of October, hoping to find fair weather and to see the grand mountains that I ought to see from the window of my hotel. In this I was much disap pointed and in six days spent in Gen eva I only saw Mt. Blanc once. Itis aggravating to travel a few miles from the Bernese Alps and read in your Baedeker "On the right side of the track is a fine view of the Jung frau," and then not be able to see a rod on account of the fog. Of course I took the wrong time of the year to see Switzerland at her best and you cannot have sunlight every day in the year at any price. So I will branch off to a more ma terial subject and speak of the pros perity of this little confederation or republic and its wonderful progress. The Swiss are a clever people along many lines. We can beat the world on cheap watches, but we cannot beat Geneva on fine watches, and the trade in this industry alone will be 25 per cent, greater in 1899 than in 1898. They are fine machinists, and the way they have developed electri city is almost marvellous. The little waterfalls are harnessed all over the country and waterwheels run dy namos that furnish beat, light and power at the same time. TheRhone, which looks so peaceful at the mouth of Lake Geneva, has been utilized by the same engineer that harnessed Niagara Falls and the same system used there furnishes power to the Geneva factories and light to the city, Mr. Field, the American en gineer, has secured the control of the surface railroads in the city and all its suburbs, and will build this win ter an overhead trolley system, using the power above mentioned. The Swiss use the same skill in agriculture that they do in mechan ical arts, and the way the foreigners work their small farms would put a New England farmer to shame. Every inch of the land is cultivated, and the vineyards extend up the mountain sides, sometimes almost to the summit. This is equally true of France, where, among other good laws, is one forbidding anyone tocut down a tree without the permission of the authorities. The week I was in Geneva was the time for harvesting the grapes and it was a most interesting sight. The vines are not nearly as large as one sees in California and the fruit is much smaller. They are about four to five feet high, each one being tied to a straight stick, and the grapes are at the bottom of the vine. I passed by many vineyards, but as there was a heavy fine for touching the fruit I could not sample it on the vine. Men, women and children were engaged in harvesting the crop on t ie Sunday morning that I saw this sight. The clusters were cut off with a knife and all put in a wooden basket carried on the back. When this was filled a man came alongand crushed the grapes in this receptacle by the same process that our grand mothers made butter in a barrel churn. The mass was then strained, the pulp being saved for brandy and the juice for light or dark wine, ac cording to the color of the fruit. The juice was put into a great hogs head and drawn into town by bul locks, horses or, sometimes, donkeys, to be sold as new wine to the cafes and private houses. As fermentation has not been completed, if drank at this time it not only gives one a tremendously swelled bead but a very disordered stomach. It takes about 10 days to harvest the grape crop, and after it is all done the men begin to feci how much hard work they have don? and they meet and are served new wine by the women and children who have sense enough to leave it alone. As a natural result the peasants have a regular Sher- brooke fair drunk which lasts nearly a week. It has never been my good fortune to climb Alpine heights, but the near est I came to it was a visit to Les Avants, a mountain resort 3500 feet above the Castle of Chillon, at the upper end of Lake Geneva. This is one of the few places that is open all the year round and where, owing to the altitude you "wear your breath in short pants." It is most pictur esquely located and from my window I could see Lake Geneva way down in the distance, and the Dent di Midi, rising with its snowy peaks 10,000 from sea level. High peaks rose up on all sides of us, and a funicular or cogwheel railroad ran to Ney, which was several thousand feet higher than Les Avants, and from which there was a wonderful panorama of the Alps. It is hard to picture such a sightly spot, but the thought of Les Avants always brings before me like a photograph the last sunset I saw there. The music of the cow bells and the yodel of the peasants in calling them home filled the air with melody; the sun set in a burst of flame over Dent di Midi's whitened summits and then on all the peaks behind us was the Alpine glow five minutes of rose light on every sum mit and it was all over. In the ec tasy of delight at an Alpine sunset you forget for a moment that yon ever had any worry or pain; that you left home, not as Mr. Fogg did on his trip around the world with the gas burning, but with an uupaid tax bill and coal-bill; and that you are 4000 miles away from your household gods. But you" are brought so near to nature and na ture's God that worldly things are forgotten, and you feel that the pic ture ought to .be in Revelations in stead of before your own eyes. To me Les Avants will always have a deeper meaning than I can describe and the sunset which I have so im perfectly pictured is one that will never be forgotten. My memory fails to recall a more inspiring sight, and I hope the time is not fardistant when I shall see it agtiin. And I know I shall enjoy it better than ever for I shall have with me to share my joy the one who so bravely stayed at home and took upthe white man's burden. Arthur F. Stone. Pleasant Words for fir. Foster. The Burlington News is warmly supporting Hon. D.J. Foster of that city for congressman, and as he is a Barnet boy and a St. Johnsbury Academy graduate our readers will be pleased to read this tribute to the man: "Hon. D. J. Foster, unlike his Lamoille county opponents, will have the undivid ed and cordial support of his own town and county. And his knowledge of pub lic affairs, oratorical ability and general adaptability to the position give ample assurance that he will represent the dis trict with as much ability and success, to say the least, as any of his competi tors. POLITICAL PRESS COMMENT. How the Bright Editor View the Nitua- lion. The annual meeting of the Vermont bar association was held at Mont- pelier this week. The feature of that gathering was th,e address by Hon. W. r. btanord, the retiring president of the association. Mr. Stafford's address was relative to capital pun ishment and legislative communica tion of sentence. Mr. Stafford urged that communication by the legisla ture should be stopped and the death penalty abolished. His address was another of those brilliant efforts which stamp him the greatest orator in Vermont as well as one of the deepest of thinkers and most cogent ofreasoners. After hearing his ad dress one of the leading Republican members of the Vermont bar remark ed to another "With that man in Congress Vermont would have a greater influence on the floor of the house than the state has ever yet had." Barre Times. Senator Ross has been devoting considerable attention to the ques tions arising under the new foreign, policy of the nation and is of the opinion that Congress should create a new cabinet office and department to have charge of the affairs of terri tories and colonies. This branch of the government has heretofore been under the administration of the in terior and war departments, but our added responsiblities make a division of business necessary. When Con gress acts favorably upon the sugges tion and President McKinley is called upon to name the new member of his cabinet, he should not overlook Vermont, for Senator Ross would make an ideal colonial secretary. St. Johnsbury Republican! Mr. Plumley, it is hardly necessary to say, is supported in his aspira tions lor a seat in congress by his townsmen, as he always has been chosen. It has been the custom of Washington county to stand by any worthy son of hers running for an office he is capable of filling. Wash ington county will undoubtedly back Mr. Plumley's candidacy for the office of Represenative in Congress, and he will thus go to the district at large with credentials that must make him at least the peer of any other applicant for the suffrages of his fellow citizens. Montpelier Journal. John E, Harris, the well known newspaperman of Vermont, is writ ing a series of letters to some of the state papers from the West Indies. The first one contains "I" 32 times, to say nothing of the omnipresent personal pronoun in other forms. Harris is a little expensive but some of the neighbors seem to think they must have him. Bennington Ban ner. No one would claim that the elec tion of a senator by our Vermont assembly, with its House made up on a oasis ot towns, bears any re semblance to a free choice by the people. It is likely to be contrary to the will of the majority as in agreement with it. There are no valid reasons why the choice of fed eral senators cannot salelv be en trusted to the people. The day is coming when there will be a strong demand for it indeed it is here al ready. Mere constitutional prestige should not stand in the way. Ran dolph Herald. If Judge Powers withdraws, no doubt many of his friends will still be anti-Page, but it will certainly clear the atmosphere in Lamoille county, and leave Page's position still more firmly settled. If Judge Powers does not withdraw, the ap parent weakening of his support can not fail to send strength to the other Lamoille man. This leaves the situ ation as follows: With Judge Powers in the race Page is a sure winner; with Powers out of the race Page is a probable winner. Mr. Foster is likely second. Ludlow Tribune. So far as we know Gen. Grout has not proclaimed that he is a can didate for senator, but from the tenor of newspaper comment this would seem unnecessary. It appears to be taken for granted that the General is the man best fitted in all ways to succeed Senator Morrill. Hard wick Gazette. The Meteoric Shower of 1833. I find in the New England Magazine for January. 1834, an acconnt of the re markable displav of shooting stars on the night of Novl 13. 1833, by a writer who acknowledges that he was himself in the land of dreams at the time, and so had not the good fortune to see the mag nificent spectacle. But he quotes from observers who were happy enough to be called from their pillows to witness the glorious flashing of the elements. The periodicity of the display had not then been observed, although it is remarked as a curious coincidence that the mete oric shower of 1799, equalling that of 1833 in brilliancy, occurred on the night of Nov. 12. The writer adds prophetic ally tnat "philosophy, in ber riper age, may draw many important inferences from these remarkable coincidences." I copy some passages from the article, which may prove ot interest to those who are about to watch for the trails of flaming star dust with which our No vember air is soon to glow. the general description of the phe nomenon is that of innumerable meteors, in rapid succession, and for a long space of time, darting down the heavens, filling them with light, leaving behind long trains of brightness, and exploding in the most brilliant coruscations. The least excited observers speak of the heavens 'being streaked with living fire' of the atmosphere above and around 'rolling up and kindling into innumerable balls of rolling fire' and other comparisons equally emphatic. It may be doubted whether any description has surpassed, in accuracy and impressivencss, that of the old negro in Virginia, who remarked: 'It is awlul, indeed, sir, it looked like ripe crab apples falling from the trees, when shaking them for cider.' The meteors differed in size and brilliancy, some seem ing little more than mere points, others were larger and brighter than Jupiter or Venus. Professor Olmstead of New Haven mentions one as large as the moon. Two also are recorded as seen at Richmond, Va., ol uncommon size, which exhibited very singular and beautiful ap pearances. Uotb were about the size of a six-inch globe. One of these darted to the northeast, leaving behind it a train of light apparently two or three hundred yards in length, and threw sparks in every direction, until it exploded in a thousand brilliant particles. It con tinued in its path ol light while sixty three were counted by the observer. The other, equal in size, shot to the south east and continued in its course while one hundred and thirty-seven were counted. A crackling noise attended Doth, in Newton, N. J., one observer re ported a dark spot. like a cloud, which gradually grew darker and smaller, until it burst and produced a brilliant and extended flash of light. Another person at the same place saw a body of light in the east resembling the disk of the sun, seen through a cloudy atmos phere. This gradually grew dimmer and more indistinct, until it finally disap peared. In Warren, 0., a luminous spot was observed in the northeast, resembl ing the new moon. It then assumed the appearance of the italic S., was exceed ingly brilliant, and apparently fifteen or twenty feet in length. The most singular of these meteors was that which, in some of the accounts, is called the serpent, and is described by Professor Olmstead. This was a ball, which shot off in a northwest direction, and exploded near the star Capella, in the Goat. This left, just be hind the place of its explosion, a long ttain of light of peculiar beantv. It was at first straight; but it soon began to 16-ounce package for 5 cents Swift's ! Washing! I Powder !

This cloud was carried by the wind to the southeast, opposite to the direction of the meteor, and remained in sight several minutes." The duration of the shower was about six hours, beginning soon after midnight and continuing until the don veiled the meteors, as it did the stars. The pheno menon was observed all over the United States and the writer thinks it likely that it was also seen in Europe, as was the shotyer of 1709. He says that the current 0 -testimony is against any audible ex plosions, and yet many observers report a sound as ol firearms, and at Charleston, S. C, a meteor exploded with the noise ofacanron. The best observers of that time, like Professor Olmstead, reported that the meteors all seemed to proceed from a fixed point in the heavens, and like the radii of a circle "followed the arch of the sky." None crossed the track ol the other, and there was really no such wild shooting as appeared to the excited imaginations of some observers. As to velocity, it was computed that if they were sixty miles from the earth, they would have moved at the rate of twenty miles a second. The writer speculates at length as to the origin of the meteors, suggesting the theory that they are thrown off from some solid body in a state of intense ignition, and then knock ing this theory in the head by saying that such a body must be luminous and visi ble itself. On the whole he prefers the hypothesis that the earth is passing through the tail of a comet. Professor Caswell, of Brown University, thought that electricity might possibly be found to be the cause of the brilliant exhibition. Our writer thinks this is confirmed by re ports from many places that electric symptoms were noticed. A gentleman at Warren, 0., wrote that he observed on the evening before the shower his clothes were strongly charged with elec tricity, and emitted brilliant sparks! This is only a meagre synopsis of the article, but it gives an idea of the bril liance of the spectacle of 1833, and of the nature of the speculationsotthe scientists at that time. S. T.
