Without inalice and wilh all the charily the circuiustauces allow, this communlty regards with great satisfaction the frui tion of the proeOCUtiOttJ. of the year past, in this village, for illegal sale of Uqnor, The departttre last week of six ruin-sellers convlcted of violations of the probibltory law and sentenced to coullnement in the work honse at Rutland for periods varylng from sixty days to one year is not the single or the greatest siiurce of satisfaction. Tbe comparative freedom of this community from the scenos aud iucideuts attendant upon the open vlolation of the Itguor oode, and the clrcuinspection olmerved by tbdle that are still open. are matters for congratu latton. Progress iu the work of purging tln town of tbe one evil that bas for a genera tlou or longer beeu practically without re- Btriotion has been made. The work of IUf pressing the saloon and its iufamous busl ness has takeu a long stride forward. A more thoroughly godless tmffla than the saloon has been plying in this town does not exist. Persons who have not been in a poeltlOB to see tbe tratlic and its results in all their abandonment and repilslveness have no adeipiate conreption of the utter beaatUtMMof the saloon bnsiness and the deprarity of those eogaged in i'. But the work of (frnihing 0Ut the saloon and its allied evils has only been hegun. The first serious onward movement has ended suc cessfully. For tbe tirst time in a generatlon the courts have done their full duly. They heard the pravers of tbe people, sustained faithful and efflelent OffloeH of the law and administered the law in its letter and splrit, i n the fear of Cod rnt ber than of man. or that part of mankind that in on' guise or another has been tbe faithful and ever ready de. fender of the saloon aml the mercih ss as sailant of every BM0 or ofBoei that, has sought to do liis full duty as a cltizen or pnblio OfMoial. Now because a few rum-sellers-and some of than the very worst and inost dangeroiis of their class have been convicted aml sent to prison, temper ance men, law and order neoole. the oflicers of the law, ihonld not ittRpend their vigi- i lance or interinit their effortS. The serpenl hat been scotched, not killed. Two of the saloon-keepers who have gone to Rutland leave open s;iI,,tis hehind them There are other open saloons, and though all are i managed with great care to kVold iletectlon there is no donbl lipior is illegallv sold in 1 them. Uqnor Is still eold in violation of law in Montpelier. New wavs to cover tbe j tratlic have been devised. Videttes stand guard at tlie saloon doors and scan the 1 streets for the approach of ollicers. There is ttie pocket vendor theguerilla, thebush whacker, the sneak of the trallic who mcrils the same mercy from the law that custum aceords to his counterpart in war fare. Keep up the movement all along the line; thrhten the grip on the monster's Ihroat. It. is the boast that. the men who have gone to Rutland have left their gin mills so that they will not cease to be sources of revenue. Wheu their proprie.tors return It is averred that they will recoup themselves from society for the sacrillces tlie state has exacted. Eternal vigilance and faithful activity will be the price of fnture inooeee and nennanent progress in tbe well-begun work of inppreMing illegal UqttOrgaelUng in Montpelier. skminary hill.
