ARTI1UU ROPES, acncrnl Udltor.
O110 of tho best roviews of tho polit
icnl situation proRonted by Mr. 'Olcm
eut's caudidaoy for tho ofllco of Gov
ornor wns by tho Windham county
Rofotmor, indopondont in its politicp1
comiections und thoroforo boctorquali
fled to rondor impartlnl judRmont. Of
Olomont'fl accoptanco of tho noinina
tion of his conventlon, tho Reformor
says :
Ho doolares that ho aocopts the
nomination in responso to a great pop
ular dcmand. Tho troublo witli this
"draft" of Cleinent's is tho saine as
was withProctor's "draft," it is on
tiroly forced. Thoro wero somo 'ioO
dolegates from about tho Stato in at
tendanco at tho Burlington convontion
Woduesday. It is charged that a largo
nunibor, ,if not all of those, had their
oxponses paid by Olomcut or his ruan
agors. Wo don't know how far this
is true, but it is ovident thatr tho cau
cusos whicli clioso dclegatos aud the
so callud niass rueetings which Jhave
undertaken to push tho movouient
havo all bcen inspirod from Rutland.
It looks too much as though it woro a
perso'ial ambition of Mr. Cloment
rathor than tho strength of tho prin
ciplo ho ropresents, which 1ms brought
all this about.
Respectiug tho situation in Wind
ham county and Clenient's chargo of
Republican repudiation of tho plat
foim this viow is taken:
Herc in Windham county tho origin
al leadors of tho higli lioense move
mont, thoso whoso courso at tho Re
publican Stato conventiou recoived
tho plaudits of all factions, aro not
followinir tho bolt. and it would seom
nro boinc forciblv mit asido from tho
liulp.rshin .0 civo wav to tho most rad
ical elemont in tho ranks. How tloes
Mr. Olemcnt think ho is holpiug tho
causo by all this? Ho declares that
ho has 110 faith in tho Republican
promises, but ho has been a Republi
can all tlieso years, and declares that
ho is 0110 now. Hopartieipatedactive
ly in tho pre-convention caucu.ses.
Ho dirocted liis forces to participato
in tho convention until it becamo
ovidout ho could not secure the 110111
ination. Ho secured a platform that
suited him, so ho said then. It is
truo that two or thrce Republican
county conventions sinco have declar
ed squarely for prohibition, aud
against the referendum plank, and it
is truo also that almostthe firstattaik
upon that plank came in the Rotland
county convention, when Mr. Clem
ont himself and his leadqr, Jones, un
dertook to defcat its endorsenient
thero and to substitute a straight high
liconso plank'in placo of it. This was
within a week after the Republican
State convention. What is saoco for
the goose is sauce for tho gauder.
Orange county prohibitiouisi 1 had
as much right to do what ihey d'd
as had Olemeiit and Jones to make that
attompt in Rutland county.
Mr. Olemont's "joker," in tho game
of bluff he is putting up, tho Reform
or discredits :
Mr. Olemont declares that McCul
lough's nominatiou was secured by
bribery. This is serious if it be true.
Tho trouble is that his ovidence is not
couvincing. Ho has produced in his
newspapor a numbor of aflldavits from
voters in the northwe.stern part of tho
State, who say they sold their caucus
vote to McCullough. They have never
yet been backed up by such corrobora
tivo ovidence and circumstances as
would bo required to establish tho
charge in any court. From the kiud
of inen theso seem to be, as appears
in their aflldavits, they are just tho
sort that would sell their aftldavit.
A man who will sell his vote for $2
will sell his affidavit for 1. Too
much mouey has been spent in this
campaign by all the candidates. It is
something that tho voters should cen
sure, and something that should be
stopped. Mr. Olement himself is said
to havo spent 12,000 or .$15,000. We
don't believe anv votes wero pur-
chased, cortainly not with Mr. Oleui
ent's knowledge, witli any of this
inouoy, but it all helps to bring about
a cojdition of affairs which wo regret.
With pertinent roferenco to his
courso in tho Legislaturo tho Reform
or disqualifies Mr. Olement as a com
potent critic of the administration
of Stato affairs particularly in tho
mattor of the inoreased Stato exnenses.
His attitude in the Genoral Assembly
"was such as to continue tho extrava
ganco of whicli he now complains, "
as tho Journal has already shown.
"Then, too, he has relentlessly fought
all efforts to increase the rovenue from
corporation taxos. " Beiug a railroad
tnan, affected by suoh tases, he was
opposed to tho corporato taxation law,
and tho Ref ormer reasonably concludes
"ono would hardly think of electing
Mr. Olement Governor to urgo or put
through such a measuro. "
In fact tho Roformer finds that, ex
copt in tho mooted liquor questiou
which, ratioually, is tho first couut in
tho indictment
Mr, Clomont has been opposed to
what the best iutorestsof tho Stato ro
quiro. Ho can't oxpect the voters to
ovorlook all that. Ho has been any
thing but tho friend of orgauized la
bor. Whenever it has beon in his
powor to do' so, ho has cut tho wages
and increasod tho work of his em
ployos. His administration of tho
Butlaud railroad was not at all for tho
publio good, but wholly for private
All of whioli constitntos a pai tioular
ly strong and an ontiroly tuo indiot
mont of a domagoguo roasquerading
in tho livory of roform.
Tho contomporary, truo to its Dem
ocratio principles, "cannot beliovo tho
Domooraoio leadors will bo so foolish
as to abandou tho orgaui.ation and
tho prinoiplos aud tho work they havo
so long chorlshod to gratify tho am
bition of Mr. Olomont." It is still of
tho opinion tlmt "what wo need Is a
gonuino houso cloanliiK in Vormont,
aml It's comliiK. "
In tho courso of an ongrossiug local
canvass for tho govornorship or any
othor mattor of largo iniportance in
tho Stato, it is oasy to ovorlook tho
fact that ovonts of great moment or
qucstions of livoly interest aro tratis
piring or aro bolng'considerod in oth
or parts of tlns woriu. AiiiQiig uioso
mattors is tho offort of tho United
Statcs to bny tho land's in tho posses-
sion of tho church ordors in tho Phil-
ippincs, and to have the owners, tho
friars, dopart from tho islands. The
facts of tho mattor aro concisoly statcri
in an editorial articlo in tho Now
York Sun, which is horo ropublishod:
In cortain nuartors, both political
and relinious. an attompt is mado to
stir un miscliicf by misropresontiug

Roino for tho purclmso of tho proporty
of tho Philippino friars and to bring
about their withdrawal from those
In tho flrst nlace. Judco Taft's con
feronces with tho Vatican authorities
witli a view to securine theso ends
nro ronrosontod as a formal dinlomatic
recognition of tho Vatican, which in
troducos into our policy a now and
dangerous precedont contradictory of
the constitutional separation between
church and state in this republic.
Tho truth is, however, that a business
transaction puroly, entirely apart
from strictly diplomatic intercoarso,
has been nroceedine at Romo.
Our government is precluded by tho
oxpress torms of troaty of poace with
Spain, to say nothing of tho Constitu
tion and tho wholo pnnoiplo upon
which this republic is based, trom any
forciblo oxpulsiou of tho Spanish
friars from tho Philippines, on its
owu motion. If they aro to withdraw
they must go voluntarily utuier tno
operation of occlosiastical authority
A lettor wo published a few days
ago from a Roman Catholic priest ot
this conntry explainod the situation
verv clearly and vqi-v fairlv. No 111
terforonco witli rolicion in tho Phil
ippines is ovon remotoly suggosted by
the United States. Tlie Vatican is
simnly iuvited to oxercise its author
ity to withdraw the Spanish friars
voluntarily, not because of thoir ro
lgious amliations or becauso ot any
religious opinions they holdand prop
agato, or of any accusations aginst
thcm of immoral conduct, but simply
because, as this distinguished Amori
can priest explained, "they aro op
posed to us and are pcfstpouiug indeii
nitely the consummation of ourpeace
fnl pnrposes. "
That boing the situation, it seems
to this government that it is obvious
ly for tlio interest of tho Roman Cath
olic Church that the vexatious ob
staclo should bo removed. Or, as Sec
retary Root explains in his last letter
of instructions to Judge Taft, "tho
reasons making tho withdrawal desir
ablo are not religious or racial, but
ariso from the political and social re
lations which existetl undortho former
government and havo created pcrson
al antipathies monacing to the peace
and order of the communi cy. " The
suggestion of withdrawal is 'made to
the Vatican, also, 011 the gronnd that
the existing conditions "aro provent
ing these particular agents from serv
ing tho church in the stations to which
they woro assigned. " Tlioy aro now
congregated at Manila, in great part,
and so bitter is the Filipiuo autipathy
to thom that they could not bo restor
ed to their parishes oxcept by force,
whicli, under tho Constitution, the
government could not use. Accord
ingly, in the interests of the Catholic
Church itself, other religious instru
ments sliould be substituted, "who,"
as Mr. Root says, without passing
judgment 011 tho merits of tho Filipi
uo accusations against tho friars,
"might be able to accomplish for
their religion what they themselves
liad so signally failed to accomplish."
No conflscation of cliorch property
in the islands is proposed or is possi
ble. The proposal of Mr. Root is to
buy tho lands of the friars at a liberal
valuation, 011 the condition that the
friars retiro frois tho islands to give
place to othor religious agents of ihe
cliurch. No restraint is put on the
church, moral or physical, to compel
acquiescence 111 our terms ; and,
nnancially.tJieso terms aro obviouslv 01
advantage to the church especially,
ior tlio lands are unproduetive and
are hold in adverse possession by tho
natives, who refuse to pay rent for
theni and to receive back the objeotion
ablo friars in the parishes.
in order tliat botli Uatnolics and
Protestants may understand exactly
our purposo of absolute religious im
partiality, Judge Taft, uder instruc
tions trom becretarv Root, lias stated
the case very frankly to tho authorita
tive Vatican, without diplomatio ova
sion, but with business directness.
Mr. Wheelock's articlo 011 Mont-
pelier's wator supply ought to havo
tho careful reading of all the peoplo
of this city. Ho strongly reinforces
the admonitions of Superintendent
Foster and his recommendations look-
ing to tho purchaso or control of tlio
lands arouud Berlin poud and the res
orvoir, At this season of tho year whon tho
waters of tho pond and resorvoir aro
ospocially oxposed to contamiiiation,
from without and from vegotablo im
puritios within, it is n'nttor of sur
priso that tho grocors of tho city
with whoso trado it is most naturally
connected do not havo for salo an ab
solutoly puro drinking wator. Tho

pany of Burlington providos suoh a
wator. Largo quantitios of it aro sold

This wator is as palatablo as tho best
mountain spring wator and w.ill keep
indoflnitoly. On his trip to California
and Moxico, in Fobruary, Maroli aud
April, Dv. Wobb took onough of this
, wator for tho round trip of 10,000
milos. Tho party usod it on tho train
aud at tho hotels. On roaohing homo
tho last bottlo was as clear and spark-
ling as whon flrst put up.
Tlio wator is inoxponisvo, two peii-
nios furnishing all ovon any strictly
cold wator porson would naturally con-
suuio in twcnty-four hours. So thorb
is 110 roason why any porson may not
havo this wator, if locnl tradosnion
will havo it in stook. For tho siek or
invallds it is almost criniinal not to
provido a watcr of this sort.
Somo tradesman of this oity ought
to make a trial, at least, of introduo-
ing this wator hore. Tho known facts
about Borlin wator ought to insuro a
largo sale.

Mr. Olemont would not misstate any
thing, or ovorstato auythiug, or seok
to croato a fplso impression, for Olom
ent, liko Brutus, "is an honoi'ablo
man." This story of "sixty delegates
from towns whoro votors had bocn
bribod fn caucus to nomihato McCul
lough" is in tho samo class wilh tho
allegatiou by Mr. Olement that"many
countios havo ropudiated tho Mont

ouous and brazen untrutli.
