In order to give our readers an early re port of tho republican Btnto convention, to bo hold ot Montpelior on Wednesday, tho Weekly Fnr.E 1'nr.bs will U printed on Thursday next week. Tho Iudians arj Buffering again with tho Messiah craze and thu trouble is said to bo hclpod on materially by bad whiskey fur nished by equally bad whitoj. Senator Allison of Iowa is about to with draw from tho presidential fiold. He has already announced his belief that it is use less ta stem tho Harrison tldt. Tho list ot "favorite sons" is rapidly disappearing from tho prosidontial slato. It is worthy of note that whllo tho people r I Vermont and particularly those of Bur lington havo been enjoying rare spring weather during the past weok, parts of Kug land, Wales and Scotland lmvo bean burled under snow drifts from two to live foot deep. Secretary Blnino and Senator Hoar are both contemplating leaving Washington and the country for n time, for tho benefit of their health, tho former to remain away until oftor tho Minneapolis convention, and the latter until tho presidential eloction is passed. Tho lendiug nations of Europo will borep rosouted on an immense scale at tho world's fair. The German Reichstag bas just granted a supplementary credit of $1100,000 for that country's oxhibit, and Germany's neighbors will undoubtedly bo incitod there by to incrcaso thoir appropriations. Tho summer visitor boom promisos to start in early in Vermont this season. Tha streets of llurlington are already so dusty in many places as to suggest tho neod of street sprinklers, and If tho present delight' ful spring weathor continues long the wholo Btato will soon bo clad in vcrdura and bloom. The fact that the Sultan was irritated at England for sending a large ileet of war vessels to Alexandria to meet tha mission from Constantinople bearing tha inveiture to the Khedive of Kgypt is not likely to worry John Bull to any degree. England has a mortgage on Egypt and can snap its Angers at tho Sultan. Mrs. Hutchln?, tho Now Jersey widow whoso husband left his wholo property of 30,000 to Henry George, has been taken to the poor house. Sho contested tho will and loBt oven her dowry to tho lawyors. Tho lawyors also got nil but nbout 5580 ot tho 1-30,000 that was to go to Mr. George. Mr. George should now writo a now version of his theory of personal property. Tho gossips who bavo boon waiting with eager eyes for tho publication of the love letters ot James G. Blaine, jr., to his late wito will bo disappointed. According to tho explanation given, n friend of Secretary Blaine, said to be Secretary Elkins, wont to tee tho friends of Mrs. Blalno, jr., in Xow York, and arranged to roceivo tho letters, or nt least to socuro a promise that they thould not be published. President JInri Non's llctintntnntloti. Sinco tho withdrawn! of Secretnry Hlalno's nnrao from consideration in connection with tho republican nomination for tho presiden cy, It has been evident that nothing could prevent tho rcnominatiou of President Har rison. Tlioro has been no ovldonco of oppo sition even, except in several States having "favorite sons" who nro available, and these nro rapidly wheeling into line. Sena tor Cullom's lcttor withdrawing from tho presidential race, coupled with Gov. Mo Kinley's recent declination to enter tho con test, is looked upon as practically assuring tho renoiiilaatlou of Harrison without op position. Since both theso gentlemen indicate tbolr preferences for Mr. Hnrrhon it is assumed that Ohio aud Illinois will sond Harrison dele gates to Minneapolis. In Pennsylvania, where Senator Quay's Influence has been thrown against the president, thero is said to bo a rapid growth of sentiment iu favor of Mr. Harrlhou, and there is reason to bo llevo that New York will soon show n marked prefereucu for the president's re- nomination. Gen. Alger hns been pulling tho strings at his command in various directions but in formation received In Washington is snld to indicato that olforts to got any support for him outsido of his own State havo boon un successful, and it is bolloved that bo will soon wlthdrnw. It seems to bo the genoral opinion now that Mr. Harrison will proba bly bo nominated without opposition and that tho rmrty will 1)3 thoroughly united ou him and thus be able to poll every vote. If this should bo tho case, as it undoubtedly will bo, tho republicans aro certain to score n magnificent victory next November. Tho Iilcnl Farmer. All sorts of advlco havo been given by agricultural writers and others as to tho way in which to become a successful farm or and how to mako fnrminc pay. Tho most intelligent and at tho samo timo com prehenslblo statement of tho subjoct that wo remember to havo seen, however, is that given by Secretary Rusk of tho agricultural department to Mr. Frank G. Carpenter, tho well-known newspaper correspondent. Here Is tho wholo caso in a nutshell as regards the ideal former: Ho must be sufllciently well educated in science as far as it it li applicable to agri culture, and he must bo intelligent onough to study his surroundings and to apply Ills knowledge to the conditions about him, The farmer of the future will bo a buslnoss man, ablo not only to compel his soil to do its best in the matter of production, but to study the markets and know what will (soil tho best, and what will command the high est price. 1ms farmer will keep his ac counts like any other buslnoss man. As to tho question of his cducntlon, when you consider that ha must have a know ledge of all the principles of animnl and plant life; thut ho must understand tho constituent elements of soils and fertilizers, and that ho must havo soma knowledge of meteorology, chemistry, and tho other sciences closely connected with crop raising, you will see tbnt the ideal farmer of the future will have to bo not only a brainy but a well-educated man. The executors ot tho will of Daniel B. Enyer weather, tho millionaire loather mer chant, havo discovered that his ostato is large onough not only to moet the hand some bequests that ho mado for educational institutions nn l for his relative?, but to lervo something beside. This means that lomothing like i3,SOO,000 will bo distributed among 11(5 colleges and seminaries, and about .500,000 among New York hospitals. Tho largest gun made by Krupp in Ger many is forty-four feet long and weighs Ei 9, 000 pounds, its cnlibro being ntnoteen and one-fourth inches. Tho projectile Is four feet long, its weight being 2700 pounds und the chargo of powder required is 700 pounds. Tho range of this monitor is twelve miles and at uiuo miles its projectile will penetruto twenty inches ot solid steel armor. homo Idea or tlio power ot this wonpon can bo gained from tho fact that it it were planted on tho Now York shore of I.ako C'lmmplniu its projectiles oald be eisily dropped in Burlington. According toadvices from Uttawa,lumber- mcu nro opposing a. relmposiliou of tho ox port duty on logs exported to tho 1'nltod -'t 'r.'. Thoy say thnt as tho result of a i eduction of tbo duty imposed on lumber entering tho ' T'nitod States, Cuuodii'.s lum l.er exports lasi year incronou over ono million ilollur. It is aUo claimed that if nn export duty Is imposed Canada will havo to pay an Jacreate of 1,000,000 duty ou lumber going into tho United States at $2 lustead of tho 1 rato now imposed by tho United States. This argument has interest for lumber dealers ot Burlington as woll as pthor towns in Vermont. Utiloncy ol tlio I.'iliiumils rj.iw.12X In President Eliot's interview in San Francisco with roferonco to his defence of tha Mormons ntPnlt I.nko City, tho head of Harvard pays an unintentional but emphat ic tribute to tho rtllcacy ot the Edmuuda law. Ho ju'd that under this law tho Unltod Btntea government ha9 seized in feo simple nil tho proporty ot tho Mormon church in Utah. It has also seized come ot its school property, ns, for instance, tho university there. It hns been placed in na embarras jlng condition becnu.o of 1h.." Thla Is a very innocent, statement. Of course t(i9 Edmunds law embarrassed tha Mormc-nV Thnt Is just wha' d waa iutended Growth of the Maple Sugar Industry The growth of tho maple sugar industry in tho United States is shown by the super inteudont of census who has issued a report dealing with tho subject. Mnplo 6Uzar Is made to a greater or less extent in 21 States, the total number of producers being Oi 071, of whom J.j,0oo made liUU pounds or upward. Tho total production of maple sugar for tho year ending May 31, 1800, was 32.002,027 pounds, and ot syrup 2,258,- 370 gallons, as compared with 30,570,001 pounds of sugar and 1,700,018 gallons ot syrup reported at tho preceding census. A study of those figures indicates the marked change which has taken place in this Indus try during tho past decade many of tho pro ducers making maple syrup instead of sugar owing to tho increasing de mand for tho formor. It is significant that Vermont is credited with nearly one-half of tho total maple product ot the United States, this Stato having produced 1-1, 123.021 pounds and New York 10,1S3,028 pounds; as compared with 11,201,077 pounds and 10,003,010 pounds respectively, at the preceding cen sus. This is n handsome showing for our State but the flguro3given form only a frnc tiou of what is undoubtedly sold for "pure Vermont maple sugar." Collars and Vermont Politics. In discussing Vermont politics the Poult uov Journal recently said thnt "tho staud ing collar worn by some men in both polltl cnl parties in Vermont is becoming nllted, and aomo ot them will be thrown among tho dirty linens of tbo Sat9. It is true until n fow years ngo tho collar was nn Innova tlon In tha attiro ot gubernatorial candl dates. Thero woro no political collars worn by John Grogory Smith, Paul Dillingham or John W. Stewart, nor did W. H. H, Bingham put ono on, Tho votors ot Vor mont havo been nccustomcd ot Into to view tho caudldatos for their suffrages, when placed on exhibition in tho campaign, woar ing tho turn down collar of some corpora tion, aomo social order or 'personal boss.' Tha standlug collnr with its r.lr of assump tion, not to say Impertinence, may havo causod resentmont or nt loast distrust," This leads tho democratic Troy Press to indulgo In a littlo harmless fun nt Vermont's expense and at tbo snmo time to print a puff for Troy's lending industry. It says that "political collars may woll bo dispeusod with, although It cost an aspiring individual a nomination for ofllce, but linen collars are clearly inviting and indispousnble, nudcloan ones of tho latest Troy patterns do much to commend candidates to electors." Sponking seriously thoro is undoubtedly a disposition iu many quarters to dlscon tlnuo tbo uso of political collars and tho Poultnoy Journal evidently bad one eye cast in tho direction of tho next democratic Stato convention when it said "Down with the standing collnr In Vermont polltlos In 1892." Tho Vermont republicans, on the other hand, have boon singularly froo from the political collar evil, and the Journal might have oxtondu 1 its list of republicans so as to Include recent governors. Oov. William P. Dillingham certainly oro no political col lar, and no one would dream of charging Gov. Pa:o with being thus adorned, and so far tho campaign of 1802 is concerned the Vermont republican! can be trusted to "do up" nny political collars which may make their appearance nt tho coming Stato convention, Tho CaitnltiK Industry In Vermont. Tho FllEB Pnisss stated a fow reasons tho othor day why tho canning industry ought to be established Iu Vermont and especially in the Champlatn valloy. The east side of the Stato appears to bo taking tho lead In this direction, howovor, the announcement having just been made that a corn canning establishment is to be located at Westmins ter. Tho residents In that community went to work in exactly the right way to ensure tho succesi of the project. Baxter Bros, of Maine desired to establish a canning factory that nt tho height of tho soason would em ploy 200 hands and consumo tho product of at least 830 acres of awoet corn. The farm ers in tho vlclnltj pledged themselves to de vote that acreage to cornfor tho purpose. A company was formed among tho residents who purchased a sito and leased it to tho firm for a term of years, and building oper ations will soon begin so that the factory will bo iu readiness for thla season's crop, The result will be that Westminster will shortly bo In the possession ot an estubllsh mont which will turn out 250.UUU cans an nually and add betwem $3000 and $10, 000 to the revenue ot the community. There are a number of other localities In Vermont which offer just as good induce monts for the ostnblishraont of the canning industry as Westminster, if not better, and Vormontor8 who have surplus capital which tboy ore bothered to invest can find In this diroction an excellent oponing. Burling' ton or some other favorablo point in Chit tenden county would bo an excellent place for a canning establishment, and Addison county and Franklin county ought also to offer peculiarly favorable inducements for this industry. Capitalists from other States are investing quite largely In Vermont aud opportunities of this kind will soon bo snap pdd up. What town will secure tho next canning factory ? tovcrnorahli Tutk. From tho Manchester Journal. Col. Fuller, in our estimation, is the equal of our present governor and would, with out much doubt, make as good an official Ho is a thorough business man mid would glvo his best attention to his ofllcial duties, and the present governor baa douo no mora than this. Tho opposition to Col. Fuller has not yet united on any particular candidate, though there is considerable talk of taking up a farmer. Tlurj is no objection to i farmer provided a fit man be chosen Among those of this class named nro Spear ot Bralnlreo, Chapm of Middlesex and Fletcher of Cavendish. All these gentle men havo bad more or less legislative ex perionce and neither of them would be likely to dishonor the State it oloctod. Fairbanks and Grout aro not making a push for the nomination, though each of them has friends wbo would bo glad ot their advancement. Grout has made a good record as speaker during two sessions and, but for the fact that his brother Is a con gressman, bo would bo actively in tho race with a good chanco for winning. He may come in strong at tho last end as a compro mise candidate. Saved tliw ltoard of Agriculture. From tho Barton Monitor. 1 During the session of tho Legislature of 1880, when Col. Levi K. Fuller waa lleuten ant-governor, and by virtue of his otllce 'president ot tho Senate, u grtat huo and cry wa made against tbo Board of Agriculture aud a bill, having been passed by the House, to ubolish the same, came before ttie Sen ate. The discussion in thut body was brief, and tbo voto upon the bill a tie. Col. Fuller cast bis vote agalnat the bill and the board waa saved. We havo heard from time to time somo critioism against tho board, which have been made for tho greater part by those who have prejudice against "book farming," or more particularly, perhaps, against anything tbat uuotuer man knows on tho subject ot ugrlculture. The board ia iu being; and tho two men, William Chapln and Victor I. Spear, both prom ineutly mentioned as lit governor candl dates, are on that board, doing useful work for the business and farming Interests of tbo State. If Col. Fuller had cast hia vote the other way, wo imagine himself and caudl dates Chapia and bpear would havo been very effectually "abolished" when the law went under. GROCERS AND MEATMEN.

We do not know how it may be with tho rest of the gentlemen named in the abovo paragraph, but it is true that Hon. L. D, Eldrido has been mentioned for second place on the State ticket, and tbat bo will bo u candidate. It hotms to be conceded that Addison county is aa much entitled as any countv to havo a candidate for the poiition, and the couuty is ugreod that Mr. Eldredge Is Its choice. A Worthy Tliuuk OUerlnj;.

Vermont l'ull of Guvernur Timber. Prom tho Windsor Journal. A correspondent of tho Woodstock Stand ard suggosts the name of Hon. Joseph C. Parker of Quecheo for governor. Tho fact thut the ropublicana of Vermont might go much farther and fare much worse clearly indicates how full the Green Mountains nre of brainy, Intelligent, business men who would honor tho chief executive's chair. Tho third annual banquet of tha Grocers and Moatmen'a asaooiation which was hold the 30th ot the Hotel Burlington proved to be the largest attended as well as the most successful of tho trio. Oue hundred and fifty-seven bnnquattors sat down to tho tables which were arranged In a style tnai proved tho proficiency of Mine Hosts Morse Niobaum. President C. A. Barber occupied the place of honor at the head of the tablo at the east end of the hall. On his left were Mayor Seneca Hasoltou, Secretary of Stato Brown ell, W. B. Howe, Senator Robert Roberts, Editor B. S. Barrett. J. S. Holton, Hon. Henry Ballard. Dr. E. H. Johnson. On his right woro Rov. II. L. Wheeler, Hon. U. A. Woodbury, C. W. Scarif, Gen. T. S. Peck. N. 1C Brown, D. J. Foster, and Dr. A. P. Grinnoll. Many other prominent Burling- tonlans were present. Grace was said by Rov. II. L. heeler. At 11 o'clock President Barber arose and made a few congratulatory remarks over the success of tho banquet and mude fooling rei eronce to tho late E. II. Trick. He thou in troduced the toastmastor of the evening Hon. Robert Roborts. At tbat moment the electric lights went out and Mr. Roberts made the iuvidious romark that the present Illumination was perhaps as bright as any ot a different sort that would bo ofterod during the remainder of the evening. He paid tho erocers and meatmon a fow uoal compliments, sandwiched iu a fow bits ot humorous poetry aud prose and closed by tho usual admonition enforcing the necessity ot brevity and a ploasaut introduction of Mayor Haselton. the toastmastor had mado a rather ae precatory roforeuco to the lawyers present, and Mr. Unselton made sure to overcome thla impression. Lawyers, he said, should cortalnly havo something to oat onco iu a while. Tuo mayor never better snowed his capacity for wit on auch occasions. Tho board ot trade ( ) which is well named from its present wooden consistency recelv. ed a fow shafts from tbo mayor's romarks and he closed with a compliment to the usefulness of the association. Rev. H. L. Whoolerwas then Introduced, and he olfered a few words which ho tot forth tho idea of tho value of the mutual intercourse of mou and the necessity of cultivating manly qualities and of being true men. Hon. Henry Ballard replied to tuo toast that was propounded by Toastmastor Roberts by telling tbo story of the inerchnut who said that ho had got tired of telling eix lies to sell a half dozen csnts worth of goods and thcu charging it in tho end, addln fow more facetious remarks, nnd closing by endorsing tho organization of tho grocsrs and meatmen and its purposes. Dr. A. P. Grinnoll rjse to his foot after u humorous introduction and spoko for bl profession. The doctor said that ho felt hu belonged to the list ot "banquet bummers who got their board free tue year rouud and among whom he felt suro he could in clude sever other gentlemen present whom he nnmod. He was not in favor of those pure food measuroa ineutlouud by a prede cessor, luey would rum nis uusinoss. The presiding olllcvr disclaiming any po litical allusion called on "Gov." Woodbury, who said that tho mayor's remark about the board ot trade had knocked out hia best ideas it ho had lmJ uny earlier in the ovenlog. He said be was still president of the board, as for certain proventative reasons no successor had been elected. Col. Woodbury thou told a story at tho expeuso ot Dr. Grlunell and was gieoted with ap plause as bo sat down. J. 11. ilolton referred to tho lateness ot the hour and stated that accordingly hi3 re marks would be bridf. At a certain stated timo bo thought lawyers wore butclnrs. (This was when ho paid the bill.) They wore eligible then to membership Iu tho associa tion. Good stories being tho order ot the ovenlng, he told a good one, aud gave the grocers and meatmen a few pleasant re marks. Tho toast that was loft in tho hands of D. J. Foster received the usual amount of humorous treatment. lie maintained that the lawyers were "all right," notwithstand ing tbo invldous remarks made concerning them. Editor B. S. Barrett responded to tho toast dedicated to his fraternity. He said that editors enjoyed "feasts of reason und flow of solu," but they also enjoyed feasts of roast turkey and How ot bowl. Lditor Dodge came iu for a share ot the speaker's wit. Presiding Ofllcer Roberts reminded thoso present that the hour waa getting quite "early" and callod ou Gen. T. S. Pock, who told a humorous story of tho lato Gen. Stannord that occasioned hearty laugh- tor. With another amusini; anecdoto of army llfo and n pleasant allusion to tho ns sociation, Gen. Peck olosod his remarks. Secretary T. P. Daley then road letters of regret from H. O. White, president of tho Boston association, J. H. Wright, secretary of tho same association. Rov. Georgo Bailoy of this city, Elias Lyman, president of tho Board of Aldermen, and Alderman 11. , Hall. Toastmastor Roberts then announced that tho toasts were concluded and tho assem blage separated shortly aftor 12:30 o'clock. DEMOCRATS IN CAUCUS.

Mr. Sutton sail that ha was no longer chairman, and when Mr. Holton htd taken oil his overcoat he an nounced that the gentleman was out of or der. Business proceeded thon nnd J. H. Kelley was chosen secretary. Mayor Hasel ton explained what the caucus was caueu for and movod that tho chairman be om powored to appoint a committee of three to preparo a list of names to be presented to the caucus for delegates. Tho motion was immediately seconded, but before tho ques tion could be put J. W. Daley movod to amend by having the delegates chosen from tbo floor of the caucus. The proposed amendment waa defeated by a large major ity nnd tho origiuul motion was carried. Chairman Holton appointed as such com mittee Mayor Seneca Haselton, J. A.Brown and George L. LaFouutntu. While the committee was dollbornting, Mr. Holton addressed tbo caucus. He spoko of tbo aggressive campaigns mado by tho young democrats of Massachusolts, and ho thought If tho old mou were relegated to tuo rear a littlo moro in the domocratlo party ot this Stato thoro would bo grtnt gains in its tanks iu tho next few years.
