motion w is seconded.
Mayor Woodbury. said It might be proper

The water committee had recommended
to build a new reservoir, new fuel shed
ami extend the supply main UtM feet into
the lake The board had adopted the re
commendation but it was found that a
city meeting would have to he called to
raise the necessary monev. Kveu if
the money was; voted for these improve
ments, the interest to be paid by the city
ie.t year would be i'M) less "than last
year. He thought the people would be
foollsh to neglect the matter. It had been
noised alnoud that Hiirlingtnn had im
Tiure water and it would advisable for this
reason alone to make the improvements.
It won 1 cost each laboring man but two

sai l In- and received oilers for bonds so
that tl ntere.st on them would be over
s 1 fi cent. He hoped the matter
would n t be dismissed.
.Mr - ilford said he was in favor of bet
ter wa'er but the amount which it was
proposed to expend would pay one-thitd
of the expense of netting water Iroiu
Hines' .null pond. If the money was to be
expended he was in tavor ot raising the
money now by a tax and not bond the
Mayor Woodbury thought it was better
to pa terest ot S 3 S per cent than to
raise a tax of ;:ti),i)cO at once. It was evi

I have read the article in your paper of
Inly 1, In reference to the suit ul Abra
ham Owen against myself, in which I am
charged with swindling him out of some
J.1000. As I do not wish to rest in silence
under such a charge nor to suffer It to ro
main uncontradicted as It will dome great
wrong and Injury, I wish to say : That
the statements in that article In regard to
myself, which make me one of the
guilty parties in the transaction, are
false in every respect and particular. 1
was not the party, nor one of the parties
that was engaged in any .such affair. If
Mr. Owen lost any monev In any such
way as he says he did (and of this I have
not the slightest knowledge) he Is mis
taken as to the identity of the mail or
men who were engaged in It. He is cer
tainly mistaken if he thinks that I whs
one of them. A trial ot tlie case If Mr.
Owen shall ever be disposed to bring the
easy to a trial will prove the truth of
what I say. L ntll such a trial shall be
had 1 ask that the public will suspend
judgment, ami not condemn me unheard.
Justice to 1111 self and to my relatives and

THAT .SUNDAY ll.VClJltMON.
Tim Methods of lis rriijiTlnrH Kxposcil
Its Prompt Suppression.
Tlie facts about the Sunday excursion
from Plattsburgh which did 110 come off
sj. unlay, as related tons, are as follows:
Some petsnu, who thought they could
make some 111 mey out of a serie-i of such
excursions, obtained from tliu president
of the Grand Isle Steamb i.tt company the
terms upon which the steamer Keindeer
could be chartered.
with these terms and as we believe with
out describing the character ot tlie excur
sions proposed, they assumed that the
boat would be at their disposal, and pro
ceeded to announce the "grand .Sunday
excursion" by po.ster.s and advertisements.
Some of the Hurlington directors, who
are among our best citizens, knowing that
the directors, as a board, had given 110
permission foranvsucli use of the Heindeer
were lookim: up the matter with a view
to putting a stop to the tiling, before tlie
protest on the part of our citizens was
proposed. Tlie announcement in Satur
day morning's Fltnn I'ni.ss that an oppor
tunity would be ottered to protest against
any such violation of tlie Sabbath and of
the Sunday quiet of our citv, was exceed
ingly gratifying to a large proportion of
our citizens, and the protest was very nu
merously signed. It was a brief note ad
dressed to the tirand Isle Steamboat
company, calling the attention of
incsmeiii aim (uieciors to me tact, that
the proposed excursion was contrary to
law, and calculated to disturb the pence
Hhd quiet of our city, and requesting them
to give orders that the excursion should
not land at Hurlington. Tlie number ami
character of tin-signers was such as to en
title tlie protest to respect, if anvthlng of
the sort was needed to secure action on
the part of the boat company, and such
action was promptly taken. President
lirainerd of the company came down troin
St. Albans, and tlie result ot a consulta
tion witli the directors was a prompt de
cision that the Heindeer had not been and
would not be chartered tor anv such pur
pose. So, though Its projectors,' had mean
while got out a baud 1 1 1 1 announcing that
in smie ot the protest, the cmui'moii
would come olf as advertised, tlie grand
Sunday excursion fell through. There is
no reason to fear that the Heindeer, under
its present management, will be used fin
ally excursions that are not respectable,
or to which tlie better portion of the com
munity can ooject. It has been thus tar a
well managed and tavorite boat, in these
re.-pects, mid such it will continue to be.
Piojectors ot Sundav steamboat excur
sions, witli or without the attraction of a
"sacred concei t" by Hie Plattsburgh brass
band, will have to apply some where else
than to either the Grand Isle Steamboat
company or the Champlain Transporta

Tlie country will be glad to learn that
Hon. .hiHtlli S. Morrill, who has been dan
gerously ill for several days, Is so far con
valtscent that hopes are now entertained
for his rapid and complete recovery. If
Mr. Morrill lives to complete his present
term in the I'nited States Somite, he will
have tlie honor of being longer In contin
uous service In Congtess than any other
man In the history of tlie government. He
was elected to the .'Hth Congress, as
sumed his seat therein March ), 185.1,
and was returned by an appreciative and
grateful constituency to the 3.1th, With,
ilTth, li-jth and illltli Congresses and was
then promoted to the Senate, in uhich be
took his scut Maich -t, lsiir. A remarkable
fact, and one which we believe cannot be
paralleled in tlie history of any leiils.ntlve
body, is that, since llrstentering Congress,
until his present Illness, he lias been ab
sent from his seat hut one dav, and
that on account of sickness, anil that
he has never missed a committee
meeting. During his more than thirty
years' service he has nlwnvs entiitiiniiili.il
the respect and conlldeneeof his colleagues
in both branches of Congress, while Ids
wise counsels and advice have iteen often
sought and generally followed bv succes
sive administrations. More than once
Mr. Morrill lias been tendered and urged
to accept a cabinet position, which he de
clined, pielerrlng to represent his people
in the legislative branch of the govern
ment. It is another remarkable fact, and
one of which the people of his State and
the country may well be proud, that
through a legislative expel ieiice of a
third of a century during much of which
time he has been at the head ot the two
most important committees, that of ways
and means in the House, and ot finance in
Hie Senate his reputation for puritv of
pii'uii.ii ciiaiacier aim iniieMOle olllcial
integrity has never been assailed bv even
the whispered breath of rumor. He re
maiked to a friend who sat by Ids bedside
a tew minutes this morning, (hat uhile
