for thoir adoption or lejection.
MontpoUer was singularly fortanato
in tlio witdoui nud enterprising char
actcr of tho pionocrs of tho town,
"boncatli whoso sturdy stroke bowed
tho woods. " Amoug Iho settlors who
had gathered herc, on tho banks of
"Ouion River", in a small opening
in tho "forest primeval," wero ii!on
of prescience, the nien of mcntal and
busiuoss grasp, who uiidorstood tho
iiecd oC bauding togothor to protect
thoinsolves froui loss thiough tho des
truction of their property by firo, nud
thoy comprehonded also tho funda
montal principlo of organization for
mutual nnd effective protection
agaiust flre. Hence, as naturally as
thoir dwollings arose in tho wilder
ness roso also in tho woods, a genera
tion aftcr tho first treos wero folled
antl tho flrst cabin reared, tho associa
tion whioh was fclicitously nanicd
the Vermont Mutuul Fire Insuranoo
Company. Its first aimual roport
was rrjndo soventy-flvo years ago.
This was about twenty years af tor tho
Watchman had boen established in
this samo wilderuoss. Both institu
tious havo continucd along their way
to tho present, and from tho begiiming
havo beon iniportant factors in tho
affairs Lof the Stato in whoso earl"
years thoy wero i'oanded. At this timo
the Watchnjan company is pnblishing
the Sovonty-Fifth annual report of its
sister institution, which long ago,
following the Scripoaral injunction to
man to multiply and people tho esrth,
had multiplied and peopled all tho
Stato with its agoncies and had takcn
into its oxpanding mntnality Ver
mont property ownors to the oxlontof
two-thirds iho voting population of
tho State.
In this connection it is a pleasuro
for tho Watchrnan and Journal to d'
reot pnblio attention to somo of tbo
facts of this follow pionoor's history,
its present standing in tho Stato and
among flro insuranoo associations.
Tlio importanco of tho Vormout
Mutual in tho business affairs of tho
Stato is shown by tho fact thatduring
tho poriod of. its oxistonco it has paid
Vermont property owners moro than
$0,000,000 for losses by flro. It has also
demonstrated tho soundno.ss and wis
dom of its plau of iusarance, which
iias. not boen changod in nuy essontial
pacticular during the entiro poriod
of its boneflcial careor. Tlio mulaal
plau is tlio original and oldost form
of insuranoo. It grow out of tho first
bauding togothor of a few property
ownors to protect each other against
losses by firo.
Tho mutual plan is not only tho
strong plan, but it is choapor thau
tho lator sohomos of protectiou through
fitock companios. Tho mutual plnn fur
nishos flro insurance at cost, and cost
must necos'sarily bo 011 a basis of snfo,
judicious and economical management
and adn'iiii.'tration.
Tho stock company is organized to
niako roonnv for its stockholdors. It
must neoosiavlly mako iti proniiuuis
largo onough to pay its losses and tho
oxponso of doing business, and largo
onough, nlso, to provido dividonds for
tho stockholdors. In tho mutual plan
tho policy holdors aro tho stookhold
ors, and thoy got thoir dividonds in
tho lowor prlco thoy pay for insur
anco. Tho stock conipany's oxponses
aro 011 a basis of cost dotormined, not
up horo in Vormont, whoro all tho
itoms of cost, ronts, sahvrios and inci
dentals, aro practicnlly ata minimum,
but ou tho scalo provailing in New

What moi'o could the proporty own

coaping of thoir lossos, thau this
Vermont Mutual Firo Insuranco Com
pany is providing?
The sccretary of agricultoro who ro
cently rcturned from tho West dcclaros
that tbo most prosporous conditions
exist throughout tho West and that,
whilo thoro is 110 activo intorest in
national politics, tho pooplo aro too
woll satisfied to desiro any ohange.
When askod to doftno tho tariff
plank in tho Iowa Republir,an plat
form, ho said that it moant that tho
pooplo desircd somo modificatioii of
tho tariff schedules. That in this timo
of pleuty thoy considorcd such modifi
catioii could be judioiously mado.
That whilo truo to tho principlcs of
protection, thoy bolicvcd thore wero
certain industrics which 110 longer
nondod tho samo protection that was
essential to their prospority whcn
tlio Dingloy law was enactod and thoy
oxpected tho party to modify thoso
schedules. Thoy wero particularly
desirous of a modificatioii of tho
schodules afl'ccting trust mado arti
eles, but wero convinccd that any ro
vision of tho tariff could bo intrustod
only to the Republican party.
Speaking of tho Prcsidcnt, ho said
tbat tho peoplo of tho West wero all
oiithusiastic in his support and ovcn
tho Democrats approved of him aud
many oxpressed tho wish that ho was
thoir leador instead of tho loador of
tho Ropublicaus.
"Mr, Roosovolt," said tho Eecrotary,
"is tho typo of mau wcsternors lovo.
Ho is fearless, honest and brilliant.
Thoy aro for him to a man. Thoy ro

tioual path in his offort to securo
that regulatiou through tho courts
and by nicaus of tho Shorman law.
If that law should provo dcfoctivo,
thoy boliovo Mr. Roosovolt will so
inform Congress, pointing out its do
fects, and that Congioss will prompt

say, is in markcd contrnst to tho rovo
lutionary mothods advancod by Dem

stroy tho trusts by a radical rovision
of tho tariff, thoroby throwing huu

Editor Daily Journal : Whon tho
institutlons of our bclovcd Stato aro
bo assailod, as by tho Rov. Sam
Small iu his nddross to tho peoplo of
Montpelier tho othor night, a ory
can hardly bo withhold from thoso
who, ho was ploascd to say, would bo
mosi affoctcd by tho law ho advo
catos, and to whom bo mndo what ho
iutondcd to bo n llattoring apjicnl ;
though horo, his cloquonco faltorod
aud tho words soomcd to stick in his
tliroai t'". ho too'i rofi'go in a display
of .wit.
Tho gontlomaii who introduced Mr.
Small statcd that tlio lccturor uiidor
stood human naturo aud his statemout
provcd correct, for wcll ho kuow how
to load tho mind through a labriuth
ino mazo, appcariug now and thcn in
tho guiso of tho charmor, Flattory,
and agaiu iu tho bluff jokor who
laughs at huinaii weakncsses, whilo
inwardly ho sneors ; creatlng a sud
den divorsion, if a way ojt appeared,
by a witty play 011 words. tiU tho
averago mind was woll nigh lost iu
tho wliirl of reparteo, sharp if not
olegant, and tho meaningless high
souuding phrases of his vulgnr oratory.
Ho assured his audionco that it was
not necessary for missionarios from
Now York to como to Vormont to
teach the freemon how to vote, but
ho was carcful, by every menus he
know, to impress thom with his viows
upon tho subject.
In explanation o" his reason for
comiug from hi Southorn homo
"away up hero to Vermont" to inter
fere in local affairs, he said that somo
years ago tho South got an "overlast
ing licking" for thinking that each
Stnto hnd a right to manngo its own
affairs and Vermonters had thoir
sharo iu it, oonsequently, ho was here
to"get back at them." If at this
nioment ho felt thero was any discrep
ancy in his statement, he retreatod at
onco to the sholtcr of buffoonory
which ho knew would divert atteu
tion. At nny rate, ho lef t his hearers
to draw their own conclusions as to
whothor ho meant to "heap coals of
fire " on our heads, or hoped for tho
vcngeanco of small natures to draw
us down to his own level.
Thero aro thoso now, howevor, who
stand in need of an "overlasting' ick
ing" for thinking that a man has a
right to manago his own affairs, when
it comes to tho adoption of au act or
system which ho knows will bring
disaster and suffering to hisiieighbor;
and, solely, that ho may roposo in tho
lap of lu.xury at the awful expouso of
ruined lives, broken hearts, sepava
tion of childrea ai'd parents for
liquor does this, too crime, liunger,
cruelty, despair, wretchedness, want,
aud all that follows in tho wako of
tho saloon as surely aa in th(5 wake
of slavcry.
Women of Vermont, if my memory
serves me aright, yon had yojr sharo
iu tho attondaiit cirejinstances o' the
nforesaid "thrashiug" and should
you be called unon agaiu as humblo
ii'strumont'3 in tho admiuisterii'g of
other "lickii'gs" you will not flinch,
but do your part bravely.
Woll, iudoed. the reverend gontle
man kuow that to piato of "political
bosses" soldom fnils to rouso a spirit
of opoosiliou, yot ho hositated not at
oU to acknowlc'lgo his sharo in the
manngemeut of affairs politic.l iu his
own Stato. To tho fomiuino mind,
thero was somothing coufusing in his
explanation of his apparontly changed
viows, sinco ho spoko in Vermont some
years ago, tho maiu point of which
appeared to bo .that ho belioved o$
actly as ho did thon, but he oxpressed
it differently. He said ho espoused
tho canso of local option in the Legis
laturo of his own State, whilo a 1110111-
bor, (and hero ho took his audionco
into his confidenco),admittiiig candid
ly tliat at tho timo ho was drinking
enough "to float an ocean liner. "
This was another source of bowil
dennont, 1'or of courso ho -would
want a liconso-local-option law undor
such conditious. Ho told thom that
tho locnl optiou lnw in Georgia,
Missouri and Toxas had drivon out
tho liquor traillo in many coanties
and a largo proportion in eacli Stato
woro prohibition counties without a
liquor dealor withiu their bordors,
and whon ho said a liconso-local-option
law does not nocossarily mean tho
oponing of a slngle saloon, tho illogi
cal asked horsolf," What do thoy want
it for?"
Mr. Small assorted that if a town
wanted prohibition it Bhould havo it,
but no powor undor hoavon had tho
right to foist it ou tho citizons against
thoir will. This, ho said, is demo
craoy, it is ropublicanism, Amoricau
ism, nnd froodom. But what about
tho hopoloss onos, whoso votos must
bo over in tho mlnovity? Has tho
Rov. Sam Smnll consultod thom? Ha
ho loanicd what aro l'olr wislios in
tho mattor? Is thoro a niothor in tho
Stnto whoso hoart does not quako
with droad at tho thought of hor boy
daily passing tho opou snloou which,
regulnrly liconsod, offors so many
attraotions to draw custoniors? Is
thoro Ouo who has booii hor bou fvoed
from tho toils of tho monstor snfo so
long as it is out of ronoh does Buch
au 0110 want tho opon snloou ou our
strcots? Nay, nay, ho has no argu
li'onts nt his commnud to couviuco us
that wo want tho Hconsed saloon in
tho Stato of Vermont. When with
his spooioun, dissiimilatlug tonguo ho
assured IiJh hearors that bocnuso our
proKont lnw has its dofccts, it would
bo botter to oxohango lt for another
that will blot tho fair fnoo of our
Stato with tho opon saloon ; that,
bccauso, undor that law, a man must
porjuro himsolf to got tho liquor ho
wants to drink, that it will bo bottor
to provido for him tho opportunity to
got all ho wauti as frco as wntor,
still, wo worc not convinccd.
Woll tho Rov. Snm Small know tho
effect of sneor nnd ridioulo aud jost,
but what ho did not tako eo much
into account was tho sobor socond
thought of tho morrow when his ar
gumont"? should be shorn of thoir
trappiugs and brought into tho piti
lcss light of day. In tho cooler mom
onts of rollection tho falseucss of his
protonded tributo to tho iiitolligonco
of tho votcrs, which in his noxt brcath
ho bolied, will bo scon and mauy of
tlioso who listcned to him will do
soino thinking that will rosult in a
roactiou. During tho noxt- few
mouths tho questior. must bo dcoided,
whioh will not only afTcct our Stato
but, as Mr. Small snid, cvcry other
in tho Unlon, for they aro waiting
and wntching to seo whnt Vermont
will do.
I nppeal to the women to uso ovory
effort to keop tho opo'i saloon from
our State. To you who heard nud
you who will hcar the Rov. Sam
Small, bethink yoursolves of his
mcauiug. Look bohind the flashing
wit, tho facial contortions, to tlio
cynical . sneer undcrlying his cold
bloodod ndvocacy of a system that
will drng tho fair famo of our Stato
in tho uiiro nnd placo in jcopardy tho
safety and happincss of thoso wo lovo.
Lot i's rather ttruggle "to conquor

Thero has not beon a quetion askod mo

I am a Kopublican and beliovo in

tho matter should bo settled by a voto

In our fight for Ropresentative I
