lEujournoy uy train ot .Murderer Ueouiing
from Perth to this city, whence hois to ein-
baik for .Melbourne, was made notable by a
series of exciting scen?s. Wherever tho
train stopped the stations wore crowded
with people and frnutic rushes were made
for the trnin. Tho windows of the carriage
in which Deeniinz rode were broken as the
result of the attempts to lynch him. Tho
women were especially violent. Deeming
showed much alarm at every stop and a
corresponding relief when the train pro
ceeded. During tho journey ho had several faint
ng fits. His returns to consciousness were
marked by violent struggles, during which
it required four men to bold him. In con
sequence of these paroxisms, his wrists weio
terribly bruited and swollen and his hand
cuffs wore covered with blood.
His attendants think the fits were sham
med. Tho physicians disbelievo his state
ment that such fits ura duo to an injury to
his head received in Zululnnd. Ills confes

I will jive you an item about maplo sugar
that I heurd this morning. Vermont soems
to head the list, in everybody's esti-natlon,
as a maplo sugar producer. 1 hoar the
name Vermont mentioned oftener m connec
tion with tho sugar thun in any other. A
man who was iu my brother's store this
morning soiling genuine C) Vermont sugar
told him of a firm in tbis city that are said
tube manufacturing uu imitation. In tlioir
ellort to give it a little of tho genuine flavor
they are suid to boil a little of tho maple
wood in it.
I don't know whether or not any of that
grade of sugar is credited to Vermont, but
tha Green Mountain State has rc.isou to be
proud of its reputation for sugar, for when
people get cheated they do not blame Ver
mont with the deception, but they say of
tho inferior article: "That is not genuine;
it has been adulterated on the way,"

The governor question has been relegated
to the rear for a time until tho candidates
for delegates to tho district conventions can
bo solected. Hon. Levant ' M. Read has
been suggested aud no bottor could bo
found. His name will be brought before
tho convention unless other causes deter
mine the republicans of this town to do
differently. He would make an ideal man
to go to Minneapolis. Ibat Is all Rocking
ham wuuts iu that direction.
Springfield is not so easily satisfied, how-
over. She thinks Rockingham oughtn't to
grnsp everything and therefore reaches
forth for a place herself, nnd, as a candi
date proposes Hon. H. M. Arms, Spring
field's prominent farmer and candidate for
the farmer governorship.
Brattleboro us usual has any quantity of
candidates and oue of them them is Col.
Hooker, who holds so many oilices bo bus
to have them catalogued and numbered.
The Minneapolis delegates dUpused of it
remains for the towns to choose delegates
to the district convention to bo hold at
Montpelier tho same day. Of thoso thero
will bo plenty, but bo far no one has been
formally suggested as a possible candidate.
Tbe call to Rockingham voters will bo
isstiod this week. This town with a popula
tion of 4500 bus only six delegates, simply
because the voters did not got out to the
last oleatlon. Efforts will be minle to mus
ter the full strength of the party at tho
coming election of both governor and presi
dent. With reference to Mr. Atkins's visit, tho
story told in these columns before camo
straight from a democrat of the democrats,
and was not told lor publication especially.
It was told for the truth, however, and so
printed. Mr. Atkins denies It, poor malign
ed man. However, thore is some tiuth in
it, and Mr. Atkins knows what It is. The
Seer doesn't, having only the word of the
democart and Mr. Atkins. You are at lib
erty to choose between the two.
But a visit to a sister would naturally re
quire that Mr. Atkins should be driven
nbout town by tbe most prominent democrat
of Bellows Falls. It would uaturully require
tnat they should have Sunday oonfereucos
after church, and numerous other things
ought to occur to make a visit to u sulur
perfectly enjoyable. Then, too,' it would bo
perfectly natural for the democrat aforesaid
to say that he thought Moutpelier was the
host place to hild the convention for pre
cisely tho same reasons Mr. Atkins meutions
iu his double-barrelled editoiiul. bo many
important things can bo crowdeu into a
friendly visit if oue only bus time and op
portunity and inclination.
Then it was so woudorlully fortunate that
tha same Mr. Atkius should happen up iu
Windsor county nt the sume time the demo
crats lrom all over the country were con
vened to discuss political questions at a lovo
feast and should talk wiU them there. But
I cannot tell ot all the tui.cidenco, of that
irieuuiy visit. I may Uud cut more later.
.Meauwhila I humbly beg the geutlemau's
pardon for insinuating that he gavo
champagne breakfast. I trust that tbe

LFrom the Christian Union March ID, IHK.)
Born in 1833, President Harr 3 on, has
reached tho full matmity of his power, and
is at the point where n strong lnun renders
his highest service to his time: tho point
where strength remulus undiminished, aud
experience steadies and controls the im
pulses. Ho is ulso, probably, at the height
ot his public cirecr; at the close of a suc
cessful administration he stauds out as the
apparently inevitable choice of his party for
a second term. Differing from him on im
portant questions of public policy, tho
Christian Union has always been glad to
rtcoguize in our chief mugUtruto n man of
unstained record, of sincere patriotism, of
inrgo capacity and of excellent equipment
for his high ohlce. It is too early to sum
up and characterize President Harrison's
administration, but his record todato would
muko him a formidablo opponent to any
caudidato who may bo placed in tho field
against blm. He lacks the iutungiblo quul
ity of attraction which counts for so much
in tho career of public men like Mr, Cay
and Mr, Blaine; he has little power of stir
ring enthusiasm. But he commands tho
coufldenco of his friends and the respect of
his opponents. Ho is known to be upright,
outspoken, and trustworthy. It is said of
him by men of all parties and it Is a fine
tribute to his character that ho is a presl
dent who never lies. Ho is often blunt and
lacking in tact, but he never tells a man
who sees bitu at the White House one thing
aud stralghvwiy does another,
As a candidate for a second term, several
things will count strongly in his favor,
There is every rensou to believe that his ad
ministration will be ontirely free from scan
dais: so far no lack of persounl rectitude
has attached in any degree to tbe men
whom Mr. Harrison has cullod about him,
with perhaps n single exception. Tho do-
partmer.ts are said never to havo been moro
ellleieutly managed. The public business
is kept steadily in baud, Indeed, so assidu
ously does Mr. Hnrrisin apply himself to
the discharge of his duties tbut, like Mr,
Cleveland, be is criticised for lack of the
sense of proportion in bis work; for doing
ith his own hand what might well be passed
over to others less heavily burdened with
great responsibilities. This is a fault, but
it ono of those faults from which eocietv
does not greatly suHer. Presideut Hurri
sou stands clearly and definitely for a con
Distent public policy; he is the ardeut advo
cate of a high tariff, of subsidies to Ameri
can shipping, of large pensions, of a new
navy, aim ot federal control of elections
On some of these points the Christian Union
is as fiankly iu opposition, but it thoiougli
ly respects a mau who mills his Hag to the
must uud keeps it flying seven days in the
week, Presideut Harrison stands lor a de
finite, uggrosslve policy, and in political
struggles that is half the battlo, The domo
cratio party may profitably study his ex
ninple ut this point. There is good reaion
to hope, moreover, that Mr. Harrison will
go to tbe polls next autumn with every
foreign complication disposed of, uot only
In the intoroxl of the country, but nith u
certnln amount ot political capital secured
iu the general sottloment. A clean reoord
of four years, a definite nnd aggressive
policy, and successful settlement of foreign
complications will make Mr. Harrison a
formidablo candidate for the presidenoy.

A NEW FREIGHT DEPOT.
Tile Central Vermont to Convert the Old
Lamoille Dupot Into a lteceilng Mu
As announced in Tuesday's Frek Press,
General Superintendent F W, Baldwin of
tho Central Vermont railroad arrived on
the moruiug mail train Tucsdav, Ho was
met by ttie following gentlemen, represout
ing some of the leading wholesale firms of
the city: Gen. William Wells, J. G. Reed,
Dr. i:. B. Johnson, A. E. Richardson, J. H.
ilolton, A. C. Spalding, . K. Brown, K
B. Kimball, Alderman W. E. Hall, L. B
Lord, Solomon Walker, O. F. Cogswell, C
C. Miller, W. H. Greene nud W. W. Walk
er. Director li. It. Smalley and Station
Agent Greene joined Mr. Baldwin.
Ceu. Wells thought that the old Burling
ton and Lamoille freight depot could be re
paired and mado a receiving station, which
would furnish tomporary relief until the
company could build a commodious inward
nnd outward freight station such
ns the traffic of tho city warrants.
Acting on tho suggestion, tbe party pro
cvodod to tho south yurd and examined the
building. The merchants are agroed, ex
cupt the Messrs. Walkers, who believed that
tho two stations being oue-hulf mile more or
le-.s apart would not lurnish the needed and
much sought leliof. The others looked at
it iu a dift'ereut light. They said that tbe La
moille depot would enlarge the facilltie;
sutltciiintly to ensure prompt delivery of
goods which it was impossible to obtain,
through tbe present station and this would
greatly overbalance the Inconvenience of
having tho stations some distance npart. If
their goods were delivered in due time thoy
could bold their trade, otherwise thoy could
not. Mr. Baldwin said that it looked to
him as though the Lamoille depot would
supply the desired want especially so consul
eriug that It wus to bo ouly temporary,
1 ho merchaut8 were so practically uuani
mous about tbe matter that Mr. Baldwin
uud Mr. Smalley suid that tha company
would tlx the building as soon as possible
and convert it into a station fur receiving
incoming freight. It will probably take
about three weeks to got tho necessary inn
terinl and muko the repairs. In the mean
time, the Board of Aldermen will be asked
to build a solid nud substantial road from
Maple street to tho depot, some few rod;
Whether the plan will suit nil or not, is
of course a matter of conjecture, but freight
can be huuled up towu much easier from
tbe Lamoille depot than from the presen
one. The business interests ut the city neei
increased facilities very badly and the ma
jority of the merchants kuow that "great
things do not always come nt once,
nnd so they are gotus to take what it is pos
siblo for tho company to do now. Ihe
freight collections ut this station amount
to over :J1, 000,000 yearly. It is understood
this business exceeds the tunuiige to uud
from ull tho stations on tho Central und par
of the Rutland divisions. The piosent sta
tlon Is about the size ot tbe one ut Wuter
bury, which gives a good idea of the neces
sity of batter accommodations. President
