Mr, I"ib of Ira fiipported the bill because.
la believed it would lent til agricultural in
terests. Mr, Dewey thought that tbo bus
iness Interests of the State and the Htate's
own honor, ilemanded the passage of the
bill. Mr. Clark of Halifax claimed that
the committee hail not acted squarely In tho
matter of appropriations, and bo was
against the bill, thinking It time the Legis
lature put its foot down, He thought the
ICO guarantors were abundantly nbla to
pay the tJtO.OOJ. Mr. Uncoil of Hartford,
Mr. Howlaud of llnrre, and Air, Head of
llockingbnm, favored the bill. Mr. Kn
right of Windsor, as a nienihor of the lost
Legislature, corrected a stotoment made by
Mr. Clark, that the last Legislature was
told that no more money would be asked
for. Mr. Foster of Derby favored
tha bill. Mr. Darling of Chehea
saw no more reason why the guarantors
should bo called on to pay tho $10,
000 than why the endorsers of a note
should be expected to pay it, except whou
tho maker refusod to meet his obligations.
He said that when n boy ho wont to Uoston
with a chum. They knew nothing nbotit
the city oxcept that It contained a common
surrounded by n roll fence. It was ar
ranged that If ono lost the other he was to
sit on that fence and yoll. Mr. Darling did
not want Vermontora nt tho fuir to bo
obliged to sit on a fence nnd yell when they
lost their wives nnd children. He pictured
Mr. Clark lu this position and tbo point was
appreciated by those present who were ac
quainted with Mr. Clark's heavy, penetrat
ing voice. He wanted a building whore Ver
inontera could gather and of which thoy
would not bo nshumml. Mr. Millar
of Newport said that Vurmonlers would
want n place for meeting, now that Illinois
had gone democratic. Mr. Kills of Castle
ton said he voiced the sentiments of all the
members from Rutland county In speaking
for the bill. Mr. Colburn scored Mr. Clark
for some personal remarks relative to the
committee and commission. Mr. Drury of
AVestou thought there had boon enough said
on tho bill. The speaker then put tho ques
tion und the bill was passed with but four
opposing votes. Tho several speakers were
greeted with applause, as was tho announce
ment of tbo vote.

bupervisinn of the selectmen. Mr, 1 mold
of Hothel supported the amoudmcnt, which
prevailed. Mr. Newton of .lohuso.i moved
to amend by having nine school directors
Instead of tlx. Tho motion was lost. Mr.
A esion moved to strike out "2 per day,"

in favor of tho menauro ns it wan; It would
not work well so for ns Uarre was con
cerned. Mr. Ileud replied that any law
might work hardship cn a few, but tho good
of thu Inrger number was the main feature.
Mr. Arnold followed in the tume strain.
Mr. Croft of l!noihurgh opposed tho bill.
i'r Uo)nton favoiod the bill. If the bid
.addled the dobts of school dlitrics upon
towns, it alio gave to towns tho school
property. It was in the interest of
education, and e iml taxation that
the bill thould pns. Ho said in re
ply to a statement made by Mr.
Croft, that his constituents opposed the hill
that ho believed a majority of the members
of the House were of tho opinion to-day that

a demccat to the result of the election
brought down tho llouso. Mr. Emit lit of
Windsor spoko in favor of the bill. He
stated that tho town system bad worktd
will in New Hampshire. Mr. booth of
Northfield favored the bill, though he
thought t'-ie majority of his constituents
were opposed to It; but he thought their ex
perience Inferior to his own. Mr. Mead of
Randolph iavorcd the bill, stating that his
town had prospered under the town system
for 10 years, Mr. Uarber of Arlington also
favored tin bill. Mr. Howlaud stated thut
the majority who favor the bill are lawyers
with silver tongues. He stated tie was op
posed to tho bill. Mr. Ualusha of Franklin
and Mr. Elliott of Waterbury favored the
bill. The latter thought that wo wuie far be
hind othor blates in regard to schools,
Mr. Olmsteud of Newbury thought the
bill should lie until the ameudmeiits udoptod
be printod. Mr. Jackson of Wnterville
wanted to come to a vote on the bill without
auy moro delay, as the bill had already tmeu
postro'iod twice. Mr. Mnrtln suid the pro
