The policy of electing judges of our
municipal courts by popular ballot is open
to serious objections, We know ot but
one point in this State where the judge is
so elected and satistaction exists, and that
is at IJurliiigton. And the fact that tho
people there aro contented with the sys
tem has depended more upon the locality
than upon t he method. The judgeship
lias been the farthest removed from the
field ot politics of any oflice iu the city;
the better class i,f people of all parties
uniting to sustain the unright judge when
assailed at the polls. In this manner has
Judge llaseUon, who is a Democrat, been
continued in ollice at IJurliiigton year af
ter year by iheald ot Kenuiillcnn votes. Uu
one occasion, years ago, his party refused
to renominate him and attempted ills de
feat by its political machinery, but the
Democratic inaiiioulatois were themselves
defeated almost bejond recognition. In
that city the judges understand that the
tenure oi oniee depends unon "good beha
viour" rather than unon the favor of
schemer and the fortunes of political
parties. Uut in tills instance IJurliiigton
forms the exception and not the rule. St.

at Worcester, .Mass., to-day. The prose
cuting ullicors claim that they will be able
to show, by conclusive testimony, which
has not yet been made public, that Dr.
Nelson was the leader In arranging to rob
tho bank, and that the plan was formed a
considerable time before it was carried
out. There is also said to bo document

and the presence of McNeil's personal pa

Gov. Smith and
mill Lou ell
A FiiKK Pi:i:ss representative had an in
terview with tiov. Smith Tuesday at St.
Albans relative to the Montreal despatch
appearing in the morning papers to the
effect that the Central Vermont had ef
fected a lease of the Boston and Lowell
road, (iov. Smith said : "The rumor is
as great a surpise to me us to anyone else
and the despatch in the morning papers
was the first intimation 1 received that
such a report was in circulation. I
cannot account for the story and
have no knowledge as to the origin of the
rumor, You can deny the truth of the re
port iu a most emphatic manner. It is
purely sensational 111 its character, and
lias no more foundation in fict than the
canard recently telegraphed from Toronto
that tho Central Vermont had been leased
to the Grand Trunk. There is not the re
motest probability of either tho Central
Vermont leasing the Howell road or of the
Grand Trunk securing control of the Cen
tral Vermont," A report was circulated
a year ago that negotiations were in pro
gress between the Central Vermont and
the Ronton and Howell for the lease of the
latter road to the former. This last ru
