Guernaev was vialting in the Soutu last spring, he conceivea me mea tuat Montpelier, neing the birtbplace of Admlral Dewey, ahould not be forgotten in the dlatributlon ot tro pbles of the war with Spaln. During bis journeylnga in tbo South Mr. Guernsey met Becrotary long anu appealed to hlm for ald in obtalning two pleces of Spanlah ar tlllery. The 8ecretaiy was very courtooua and referred Mr. Guernaey to the ordlnance department at Washington. He was in formed that tbe only way he could serve hlm was by action on a petltlon. A petl tlon was prepared and algned by the mem bers of the Vermont delegatlon ln CongreBS, Governor Smlth and the four mayors of the clty. On Wedneaday evonlng Mr. Guernaey ap peared before tbe olty council, stated what be bad done and preaented a letter from tho ordlnance department, lnforming hlm that tbe petltlon bad beon granted aud tbat two naval guiiB from tbe Spanlah cruiaor, Caa tllla, whlch was sunk ln Manlla bay by Admlral Dewey's fleet, bad boen aa algned to tbe uae of Montpelier. The guns are now at Mare Island navy yard, Sau Franclaco. They are alx and one-balt luches callber and about twonty.four feet long. ln Murat Ualateu's "Llfe aud Acbleveunenta of Admlral Dewey," one ot tueie guna ia piainiy anown. Mr. Guernsey stated to tbo council that be had luteuded to complote bla Boheme by gettlng tbe guna to tbls clty and bave them mouuted, but bls bealtb bad bpcome so impalred that be was now forced to call upon tho board to complete the work.

Mr. Guernsey suggeBted that tbe guua should be placed in tho State Houae grounds, or in tho park wblch was recently left to tbe clty. By a vote of tbe council Mayor Senter was autborlzed to cotnplete Mr. Guernaey's project, and tbauka were ofllclally convey ed to hlin for bls ufforts ln tbo mattor. Tbe cx.mayor Tespondod tbat wliat be bad done had glven hlm ploasuio, as would anytblng be could do lu tbo futuro for Montpollot's Ituerosts and bonor. llis only regret waa tbat he was nnable to do more.

Tbo guns are es tluiated to woigb souio twenty-slx tons eacb, and the expenao of transportation to tbls clty and mouutlug 1b estlmated at from 83,000 to $5,000. The city may bo glad to add to its attractlons theae monuments ot Admlral Dowey 's prowess, but it seoms only propor that the State as a whole should bave a part ln tbe work, eapeclally aa it ia cuiiceded on every hand tbat tbe most ault able place for tbo guna would be ln tbe Capltol grounds Furthermoro, a jolnt r aolution was passod at the last aosslon of tbelieglalature whlch not only providoa for procurlng Spanlah guns but alao for tbe tonso of carrylng tbe reaolution lnto nfTact. Tlilarasolutlou ia aa followa: 'That our Senators aud Representativea ln Congresa uae tbelr beat endeavors with tlie Unitod States government, to procure for tbo State ot Vermont two or more can nou wblcb were used ln tbe naval battlo at M inlla, In May. 1898, and were captured from tbe enemy lu tbat engagement, or lnive Blnce been condemned by the goveru uii'nt; tbo samo to bo uaed as a tropby and teilc of the great naval victory wblcb was w (in by our Vermont hero, Admlral Dowey, and preaerved as a nionument to tho man aml bia grand acblevoment; p-ovlded tbat Biic.h cannon can bo aecured wltbout ex pnuse to tbe State except for trannporta tion.

In arguing against any reduction in the army Gen eral Weyler warned the government that the present situation mado a revo lution bighly probable siuco it had never been so easy for tho army and tho peo pie to make common cause. II o him self, ho said, had never thought of heading a rieing, but it must bo con fessed that rovolutions sometimes cleared tbe political atmosphero and aecomplished tbe work of regeneration. Senor Dato, minister of the interior, Boverely censured General Weyler. He declared that a general, who with 300,000 mon had failed to suppresa tho Cuban rebollion, bad no rigbt to make sucli threats, and that any nttempt at rovolution, no matter by whom, would be proceeded against with the utmosl rigor of the law.
