The brace of niessages delivered by their excel lencies on Thursday laid out a fair grist for the members to tackie. To the eye of tlie cornmon rncr'.al there exists no good reason why tlie assetnbled wisdom should not proceed with the business of getting this grist into the legislative hopper and setling the mills to grind ing. 8KNATOR MOBBILI, arrived at the PaviliOD Tuesday evening, accom pauied by his son, Mr. James S. Mor rlll. The senator is carrying with uo apparent eonsciousness the added weight of the two years that liave passed sincc he lait looked in upon tlie assembled law-mikers of the state be has so highly honored. His severe ill ness at Washington last spring has left slight impress upon the pbysical man, aud his nieutal faculties are in full play. He bears very lightly his eighty-two years of life. He is everywhere greeted with cordial pleasure. the world in the trade in calf-skins. The Watchman bore somo hurnhle part in thc momorable contest ending in Mr. Page's nomination, and on this occasion itpoints with prlde to the veri flcation of its prophecies and tho vindi cation of its judgmen. GovKrtNon Fullkb has issued a prorlaniation reconimending tbat the 21st inst. be observed by all the schools of the state as " Columbus day." As the day is made a national holiday by an act of congress, it is probablc that nearly all the schools in tbe country will join in patriotic cxcrciscs. The proclamation of the governor is a call to tho schools and the prople of this state to make the exercises of the day as appropriate and improssive as pos sible. While the scbools are to have the leading place in whatcvcr is donc, thcse celebrations shottld be something rnore than school affairs. The citizens generally ought to participate, with a view not only to inspiring " patriotic emotions in the rising generations," btit also to revive such emotions in the breasts of the present generation. The day may thus be made one of lasting infiuence on the future of the country and its institutions. It is but a short time betwecn now aud the 21 st inst., and preparations for the celebrations sbould be pushcd. Sti quiet and uueventful an " election day" is not within the recollection of customary attendants upon the as sembling of the legislature. Members werc late in arriving, and there was at the I'avilion on Tuesday evening little of the hum and bustle of the night be fore the opening of the session. This was due in some large measure to the absence of any contest over the leading legislative oflices; but the prevailing drowse in niatters political will very likely account for the general sleepiness of the great biennial eveut. The legis lature organized without a ripple of ex citement. Speaker and clerk, in the house, were noniinatedwith little of old time oratorical display. Speechcs were few and short. The contest over tbe chaplaincy of the house broke the dead level of the tameness of the proceed iugs there, and the scrap in thc Benate over thc assistant secretarvship relieved the monotony of accori in the upper branch of the legislative body. llotb branchcs of the general assembly are organized with reference to ellioiuncy in the despatch of business. WHY should tlie clerk of the house be given the power to choose his as sistants, but the secretary of the seuate be obliged to takc an assistant chosen by the senators? The oilice of assist ant clerk of the house is at least of equal iruportauce with that of the as sistant scribe of the senate. Possibly it is ofgreaterimportancs. Itseemstob"! tbe right way to do to allow the chief recordiug odieer of each branch of thc ireneral assembly to choose his own as sislants. The way in the house is the right way. Why should not the law be amcnded so as to allow tbe secretary of the senate to choose his assistant? To day (Wednesday) is thc day chosen by New York city for its grand celebratton of the landing of Columbus. The reason why the 12th and the 21st are both chosen for celebrations is that one is the dateof the landing according to the " old style " of reckoning, while tbe other is the date according to thc new. Thus two great celebrations will occur the one at Xew York this week aud tbe one at Chicago on the 21st. On the latter date, also, tbe whole country will join in tbe patriotic duty. The New York celebration began on Sat uniay with J.jwish religious services, while ou Sunday the Christian churches quite geuerally observed thc day. On Monday there was a monster parade of the school children of the city and vicin ity. There were 2 1,000 children and young people in the liue, and pcrhaps the ruost strikiug featurc of thc parade was the presence of 850 Indians, boys aud girls, from the Carlisle, Penn., school. There was a fine display of lireworks from Hrooklyn bridge in the evening. The city has been crowded with people siuce Saturday. The great uaval parade occurred on Tuesday, and was a most impressive display. A i.AitnK and brilliant company as sembled in repreientatlves1 hall Thurs day afternoon, to give Governor Fuller a litting send-off. In the clearing skies and bright suulight that accompanied his iuducliou into olllce was an omen of an admiuistration tbat will bring increased good fortune to the state of Vermont. Like that of Governor l'age, his messige was a plain, straightfor ward business document. dealing with practical affairs in a praclical way. The homage to Governor Fuller is homething niore than coiiveutional ad oralioti ot the rising stiu. He iuspires confldeuce, and tbe people of tbe state live in reasouable expeciation of great advantagcs accruiug to thein from his adiuhiistratiou of the goveruorship. Govkhnok Pak retires from oflice with the repulation, honestly earned, of having given the state au adiniuistra tiou of exceptional streugth and busi ness etliciency. His reliring mossagc commanded no perfuuctory atteution. His crisp, vigorous and busiuess-like way of handling every subject be touched uion wou the admiration of senators, represeutatives and spocta tors. He retires from tho otHce with a late incremenl of prestige as a man of high buainess aud executive ability, with the added honor of a man who cau make a reniarkably effective pubin; addioss, M wcil uione wholu.Mii THE membcr from Brattleboro res cued the house from one of those incon siderate acts that are sometimes com mitted in tbe freshness of the opening seseion the coustitution of a commit tee for thc revision of bills, with power to appolnt a clerk. The revision com mittee is all right if it will revise; the revision clerk is all right if he is com- petenl. Tue customary resolution to constitule thc coiurnittee had been of fered and the vote taken when Mr. Martin iuterposed with a sui;gestion of reference to commitlee ou rules. A more deliberate cousideration of the whole malter will thus be secured. The oilice of revision clerk should be no sinecure, uo soft spot for some bud ding attorney at S'i a day. The re vision clerk shouid understand tbe liug lilb language aud be able to write it accurately aud punctuate it correctly. A. B, Willard, the lirst revision olcrk, was au ollicial of the right stamp, aud u iuaii ol that stamp should be etnployed for this oilice. The acts of tlie last ses sion bcar frequeut testimony to the need of a thorough-going revision in dlotloa, grammar, puuctuation and every other dep irtment of the science of writteu language. The NessnffPH. The legislature on Thursday listfned to the addresses of the outgoing and in com'.ng chief execulives. These ad dresses are meanl to lay before the legis lative bodies both informati 'ti concern ing the public interests and suth sug geslinn as to future policiesas commend themselvcs to the two men whose ofBce has imposed on them acareful snd com prehtn ive examinati"n of tho condi tirti and needs of the state. The one task that of presen'ing in compact form information rrgarding every im portant branch of the public service is hardly less important than thatof offer ing suggestions for future legislalion. Few mistakes would be raado in law mkin.r did all legislalors know wcll what has been done by their predeces sors, and what the actual facts are with which they have to deal. It may be said with cn'ire cnndor that in this re spect the messages of Givernor Page and Governor Fuller are complete and valuable. As is fltting, Governor Page reviews at length thc events of the two years during which be bas been the execu tive, and bis advicc is principally con ftned to niatters which bave been prom inrntly before thc people duting his administration. The school law nat urally has the Qrst place in his message, and what be says regarding it must com mend itself to the good sense of every one. It is more and more evident to thoughtful students of the cnnditions and tendencies of this country that the mainstay of social order, and especially of democratic institutions, iseducation. There is no danger that the opportutii ties offered to the young will be too good, or that any money or time, if wisely used, will be wasted in building up the schools. If tho town systcm, which Governor Page recommends, is best calculated to raiae the standard of thc schools of tbis state, it is a duty of the legislature, second to none that faccs that body, to enact a workablc eystcm on the town idea. Thc unfor tunate delay of two years ago in con sidering the school bill should not bc repeated. Governor Page takcs strong ground in favor of a law compelling corpora tions and individuals employing large numbers of employes to pay weekly wages. This was his position at the time of his inauguralion, and he has not chaned it since. In this connection it is worth while to note that the supreme court of Hhode Island has justdeclared a law iniposing such a condilion on corporations tobe constitutional, on the ground that the creator of corporations has large powers in the way of saying how such bodies shall couduct their business. Such laws, of course, trench upon that freedom of contract which by many publicists is felt to be the corner stone of healthy social progress. The message is emphatic in its ap proval of the prohibitory law. The governor is sanguine that five years more of tbe enforccment which has been given in the past two will elimi nate illegal selling in the sniallcr towns and greatly dimiuisb it in the larger oues. The expectation is not unrea sonable. Equally emphatic in ap proval is what is said upon tbe new ballot law, which Governor Page sin cerely hopes will be improved, not re pealed. His suggestiou that emblems be placed after the names of the candi dates of thc different parties is worthy of consideration. So, too, is that of a state eugineer or a state comruission ou roads. After cautioning the legisla ture against hasty work, Governor Page concludcs his message with a portrayal of the present prosperity of the state, which is encouraging in the extreme. The two years of his administration have been uotable for a revival of in dustry that promises rauch for the future. In this revival Governor Page has had his full share of inlluence. out any increase of expense. He would like to see a cavalry company formed, without expense to the state. A revision of the laws at tbis time he does not reg ird as wise. Attention is called to the necessity of improving the ballot law. These are some of the leading suggestions of the message of the new governor. That they deserve the serious attention of the legislature gocH without saying among those who are familiar with Governor Fuller's business sagacity. The messages are honest, strong and clear statements of what Vermont is doing and hopes to do iu the ncxt few years. They should be read by every citizen, and read more than oncc. Auditor I'owell's Kpport. The current report of Hon. E. Henry Powell, auditor of accounts, is his last. Ile retires from the oflice after fourteen years of etlicicntand conscientious ser vice, of which he has reason to be proud. Thc state has been ably served by him in this important and exacting oflice. His valedictory words contain much foodfor the members of the legis lature to rtflcct upon, chief of which is what he says upou the sub ject of state exponpes. One sentence upon this subject is the followiag: "If such suggestion would not seem intru sive, I would say that there is great need of practical business economy in mattersof legislation and administra tion, in exchauge for that campaign clamor for economy whose early bloom is always so beautiful, but which bears uo fruit." Ile calls attention in this connection to thc fact that in the past two years expenditures have reached the highest tigure in thc history of the state. There is a very genuiue need of the adoption of this wholesome advice. When the corporation tax law was passed and a large reveuue began to pour into thc treasury, relieving the people of the state of much of their previous burden through direct taxa tion, this paper frequently pointed out that the next problem to meet was that of thc mauner in which the revenue ehould be expended. The corporation tax law was and i a vast beneflt, but, unless it is supplementcd by wise economy in txpeuditure, its effect will not be ap preciably felt. lly economy it should be understood that parsimony is not meant. The public institutions of the state must be supported with judicious liberality; they are a necessity, and the best economy is to furnish them with the best applianccs of modern life. Hut there are points in tbe list of expendi tures at which a curtailment may prop erly be made, with no loss to the state and a positive benefit to the people as tax-payers. Colonel l'owell devotes some spaceto showiug tho extcnt of the gain to the state resulting from the act of 18S2. re quiring an annual settletnent with the probate judges and examinations of their books, for the purpose of briug ing about uniform administration. He thinks the act has added a reveuue of at least $2,000 annually since its passage. The attempt to secure the payment of tlie full fee for letlers testa mentary or administrative at the time the letters are grauteu uas been sec onded, with one or two exceptions, by all thc probate judges in the state. The reconiUH'udaliou of the auditor on the subject is that an act be passed re quiring each applicant for thcse letters to furnish an atlidavit from some one in interest giving the probable amount of the assets. What was said in his report two years ago regarding court expenses and revenues from the prohibitory law is repeated, and thelable regarding tho latter is brought down to date. This table is of so much general iuterest that we reproduce it: Tho Venozuelan Revolntlon. The revolution which has been in progress in Venezuela for many months came to an end last week, when its leader, Crespo, won a complete victory at San lVdro. The government troopg were pursued with the flerce vcngeance characteristic of a southern race. and it is said ihftt more men were killed af ter the battle than in it. Crespo pushed on to Carncis, the capilal, en tering that city on Sunday amid a popu lar demonstration which wouldbe apt to turn the head of any successful sol dier. He has been elccted provisional president of the republic, and he will hold that offlcc until a successor has been legally elected. The animus of this revolution is quite like that of nearly every revolution which has occurred in the Central and South Amcrican republice. Palacio, the dcposed president, was not content with ruling in strict accord with tho conslitution of the state. He wished to prolong his intluence, if not by st curing a re-election, at least by pulting a puppet of his own into the othce. His disposition toward diclatorial assump tion of power became evident. Some amcndments to. the conslitutiou had recently been adopted. Palacio dc mandod that they should go into effect before bis term expired, but the oppo sition party insistcd that his successor should be elected before the changes took place. The president became ex asperated at the opposition, and in thc end proclaimed hiraself dictator. This was too much for an indignant people. An army was organized under the com niand of Crespo, and the issue of the struggle was the triumphant entry of the lntter into Caracas, simultaneously with which occurred the hasty tlight and embarkation ofthe defeated dic tator and his leading advisers. Tlie New York HeniM, whose dispatches regarding the struggle have given tbe first and most reliable news, is of tlie opinion that Caracas could have been taken long since if Crespo had not been determined to do no harrn to the city. This successful revolution seems to mark the advance of sentiment in favor of constitutional government in this South American state. It is a sign of progress, and while a state is making prouress it has much tolook forward to. More revolutious are likely to occur iu Venczuela, but they ought to be less frequent and less bloody than those of the past. It is to be regretted that this one ended in what was little less than a tnassacre. Cnmpalgn N'otes. How and by whoui, if thc symbol system of infonuing the illilerale voter is to be euucted, is that unfortunatc citizun to be onlightened as to the meau -ing of the signs at tho head of tho col umus of caudidates? How is he to be authoritatively enlighteued as to what symbol slauds for tlie party to which he belotigs? How is he to be Bavcd from ducuptive or misleading iuformation? The new device has a airoug smatloriug The messBge of Governor Fuller con tains more of suggestion than does that of the reliring governor. This is as it should be ; his eycs are fixed on the future, while those of Governor Page are, just al this time, turned to what has been doue. Governor Ful ler's suggestioiiB are alniost too numer ous even to be euumerated. He ad vises wise economy in expenditures, with a view to making the direct state tax as small aB possiblc. He would have the laws regarding the duticsof the inspector of tiuance and iu rilation to savingB institutions revised iu a iium ber of respeclB. He favors the intro ductiou of free texl-bookb in the schools, aud bclicves the school district Bhould be as large as practicablc. The Board of Agriculture should be intrustcd with the work of galhering statistical iuformation regarding uuoccupicd land, and subjects like forestry aud road huilding tuighl with propriety, he be lieves, be referrcd to the sarae body. Some anieudmeuts to tho prohibitory law,desigued to make its operaliou less cruel and more effective, are suggested. The subject of roads is given particular atteution, aud a state road commission is suggested if tho Btate is to assume Bupervision of the roads.
