thropists. Times in Vermont Not "Wholly Unci.
Tho old adage about an ill wind which
Mows no one any good, is newly illustrated
by Vermont's t-jpuricneo in connection with
the business and industrial depression which
has prevailed during the past year in most
pnrts of tho country. Owing to tho btts
ness stability, tho financial conservatism and
the general good sense which characterizes
the men of Vermont, as a rule, as well as to its
location, this Stato is always one of the last
to feel the serious ejects of a financial and
business crisis liko that through which the
country has been passing. Tho inlliicuce of
the hard times has been feit in various parts
of the State, to be sure, but that inlluenco
has not been altogether unfavorable.
AVhilc. residents of this State have lost
considerable sums of money as a result of
the panic, it is significant that most of these
losses have involved money 'which was in
vested outside of Vermont, whereas thorn is
hardly a branch of industrial or commercial
activity in Vermont which has yielded
wholly to the adverse conditions that huvj
affected manufacturing and trade generally.
On the other hand, tuere are many business
ami manufacturing concerns which report
one of tho most favorable years in their his
tory. An inevitable result of this oxperi
pneo must be of oourso the increnso in favor
w ith our people of home investments, w ith a
consequent marked iniietus to our homo in
dustries resulting from the infusion of fresh
What we desii e to speak of more particu
larly at this time, however, is tho notable
effect which the inlluenco of hard times iu
other sections of tho country is exerting
upon tho migiiitory movement in Vermont
and especially in tho rural districts. This
Stato has buffered serious detriment from
the tendency on the part of its young men
to seek to emulate those numerous
Vormouters who have wou distinction
abroad rather than those, who linvo shed
additional lustre upon the State's fair name
by their distinguished services and ovontful
lives at home. Thej- appear to huobeen
dn?led by tho success of natives of Ver
mont elsewhere, overlooking the fact that
while ninny Vermonter.s have won fame und
the more material evidences of succesnful
careers iu other States, therearo few if any
wild have attained more enviable) distinctions
anil a higher place in national esteem than
have those distinguished sons of Vermont,
the venerable Senator Morrill. ex-Senator
George K. Kdmunds, ex-United Ktotes Min
ister to England Kdward .1. Puolps and
Senator Hedlield Proctor; and to these might
be added the names of other eminent Vcr-
nionters w ho have passed out from among
us forever in leccnt years.
1 ho pot nit inlluence in loading young
men to leave tho fin-en Mountain State,
liowwver, bus been undoubtedly the desire
to ucimire wealth mom rapidly than it could
apparently bo gathered here, and this is an
idea which the present season of business
depression is serving largely to dispel. Many
' f those who went to the estcrn Ktatos
for example, were not only obliged to bor
row capital from more fortunate paoplo nt
home but they also found out that iu almost
everv Slate, iu the West Vermont capital
was to be found invested iu largo sums, ns
indicuted by the records of mortgages; and
the supply of surplus capital in the sturdy
little State was fur from exhausted.
All this 1ms served as tho most intructio
nnd convincing kind of an object lesson, und
it is being noted throughout Vermont that
the people, and especially young men were
never showing a more marked disposition to
take advantage of tho opportunities nt their
very feet than they ure at present. The
boys are settling down iu earnest on tho
old farms of tho fathers; they are
clinging to tho stores mid the mill;
and the fuetorius and th quar
ries which have yielded wealth to their an
cestois and which still hour evidences of
riclur Imnuols to comn. They aro becom
ing convinced that Vermont is not only
good Stato to be born In but a good State to
remain iu and even to come back to, as they
have teen many Vermonteis do. All this
wpeal.s well for the continued pnnperity of
ermout, and for the building up and do
velopmeiil of her dlvKraitled indintries.
A Defect I vo Itonrt haw.
The road law passed by tho Legislature in
1HU.2 was a marked step in tho right dlrce
t Ion, and thoso who were instrumental In
securing its enactment aro deserving of no
small degree of credit. Tho change from
the old system of allowing road taxes to bo
worked to out tho requirement of the nctunl
payment of tho taxes in money, has resulted
iu no slight improvement in the character
of tho service secured. The abolishment of
surveyors of highways in road districts and
tho substitution in the respective towns of
road commissioners who should devote their
entire time, if nocessary, to supervising the
expenditure of tho money realized from the
Stato and town road taxes, has also proved to
boa wise measure. It was customary before
for taxpayers In the various districts to re
pair the roads when they could do no oilier
work to good ndvantage, and as a conse
quence highway construction and repairs
were often carried on during the most un
favorable season of tho year lor work- of
this nature. Now the commissioner has it
in his power to have labor orfonnel during
tJm most favorable season, and whero this
hns bpon dono the work has proved far more
satisfactory and serviceable than it did be
fore the passage of the now law.
In the direction of highway improvement
as in other reform movements, however.
even nu approximate degree of perfection is
seldom, if ever, attained at one bound, anil
it generally requires years, if not decades,
to formulate a law or mold a system so that
it will nlTonl general satisfaction in oper
ation. The new law relating to highways
has been iu force only a short time, but that
it is defectivo nnd inadequate is shown by
the reports made by road commissioners to
Secretarv of State lirownell. a number of
which it has been our privilege to examine.
It is evident that the law hns failed to ac
complish much that was expected from it
and that it. does not go fur enough in some
directions while iu others it overshoots the
mark, it was supposed that under the in
lluenco of the operation of this law various
towns would unite iu securing tho services
of a good road builder to direct
tho work of highway construction
in such a way that the improvmenls
would be ol a more iermancnt. character
than had been thoso accomplished in previ
ous years in most towns in the State. This
has not been dono to any material extent. II
at all, and the result is that compar
atively little improvement is noticeable in
tho character of the now roadwav construct
In some instances tho funds realied from
the town and Stntc road taxes have been
I urnod into tho town treasury iu common
with other money, and have been used for
tho purchase of tools for use on tho high-
wius, for supplies and other miscellaneous
purposes; whereas, it was plainly intended
that this money should be kept as a separate
and special fund for the improvemontof the
highways. Moreover, it was siiposed that
the money derived by the Aarioits towns
from the Statu tax wouid bo devoted exclu
sively to permanent road construction and
not to temporary repairs on the highways.
.Judging from the experience of various
ronil commissioners during tho past year, as
reported, tho present road law is defective
in not being sufficiently dellnito to ob
viate a conflict between the commissioners
mil selectmen as to theinterpretation of the
provisions of the law regarding the respect
ive powers and duties of each. This is evi
dent from the cases where selectmen have
(instructed bridges and left the approaches
for tho commissioners to provide. In some
instances high bridges havo been put in
place, and neither the commissioners nor
the selectmen would expend funds in their
hands for the construction of proper ap
proaches, and tho result is that approaches
strongly resembling a toboggan chute in
declivity are ln-ing used by the public in
mull- instances until the point in dispute
shall be decided.
The law says that approaches shall not
bo built from the tax fund where n bridge
has n span over four feet, but iu cases wheio
tho approaches ought to run back manv
rods, selectmen have argued that tho road
commissioner should take the work after
they had made barely passable approaches
and carry them out to n more reasonable
in other instances where culverts of moro
than four feet span could and perhaps
should be reduced to the four foot limit iu
width on account of the drying up of streams,
selectmen and road eoiumissionci's have
disagreed as to whoso duty it was to build
a new culvprt, each claiming that tho re
sponsibility devolved upon the other.
Again, question has arisen as to whether
the road commissioner's salary should bo
paid out of the road tax or the general
fund of the town. The question has also
been asked whether the road commissioner
should settle his accounts with the select
men, auditors or soiuo one else, where
repairs of highways were plainly their
duly under tin- law of tho roadcoiiiniissiouei'
controersy has arisen as to whether tho
selectmen had any right to advise or direct
in the matter.
AVliilo these and other similar questions
maj- bo very simple t some and while an
swer, perhaps, may be legally provided for
in tho law as its exists, the act should per
mit of that easy intorpiotatiou which would
enable him who runs to read as well as un
derstand, The value of the law would lie
largoly nugmented if its provisions could
be carried out harmoniously by all who are
entrusted with its enforcement, nnd tho law
should bo so changed as to removo nil mi.
certainty and proinoto its clllcionoy of
While somo of the commendable features
of tho present road law would boar modi
fication, there are several of its provisions
which might bo radically changed with good
results. As the law stands nt present St
Albans, linrlingtou Montpelinr, St. Johns,
bury and other largo towns in tho north
part of tho State contribute toward tho
maintenance of tho highways in nil pnrts of
Southern A ermout, including the most re
mote mountain rouds from which few if
nny of their residents ever expect or are
likely to derive one cent's benefit. In u liko
manner tho taxpajersof liruttleboro, Rut
land and Bennington are coutributiug to tho

There has been a large amount of complaint
over this stale of affairs, aud with reasons
for It is tho very same injustice w hich the
patriots of the American revolution fought
ngnlnil nnd successfully overcame taxa
tion without representation.
Now thero is u very simple remedy for all
this, nnd one to which It seems to us very
few, upon considering tho same, con object.
Let the tax of live per cent, cnHed tho State
road tax, bo levied on tho tax: list as It Is
under tho law at present; but let it bo turn
ed Into tho county treasury by the towns of
the respective counties instead of the State
treasury. Then let It l! distributed among
the towns of tho respective counties accord
ing to the road mileage, ns it, s distributed
nt tho present tlino. Tho effect of this will
bo to enable each county to maintain its
own 1-oaik It is true that tho larger towns
will experience Ilttlo If any rcller from Hid
excossivo amounts which nro drawn from
their treasuries to keep up remote highways
In various parts of tho Stato which their
people never use, but the money thus drawn
from them will bo expended in their own
counties and they will indirectly derive
benefit from the exp-iidlturo through the
travel which always flows from the small
towns to tho larger and vice versa.
The smaller towns iu those counties which
contain cities or largo villages would be Just
as well oir, if not belter, than they nro at
present, but thoso counties which have no
largo places within their bordeiv und which
havo been drawing a large amount of road
funds from other counties would bo tho
loser, to the gain of the towns in other
counties, since the aggregate tax raised
would be the same as under the present law.
On the whole, however, this arrangement
would prove to work more smoothly than
tho present and there would be no feeling of
injustice liko that which materially Inter
feres with and hamper the present road law.
Another advantage which would result
from the proposed change would be the op
portunity which it would afford for incor
porating in tho law a provision enabling
each county to secure the service of u prac
tical road builder, qualified to instruct the
road commissioners in relation to Hie best
methods of road construction with tho ma
terials at hand. The imperative need of
some suporvi-ion of this sort is shown by
tho experience of lluiiington. This city has
had road commissioners w ho are recognized
as men of strong business qualifications and
of ability in other directions, yet no small
portion of the wotk ol covering our street
with crushed stone has been worse than
thrown awav siniplv because the connnis-
ioners did not know that the stone used
was too soft for that purpose. As a result
large part of this material has washed
into the lake, and another considerable por
tion lias been shovelled from the gutters and
This siiiiorvision need be no more oxpen
sio tlian the re-pectivo comities care to
make it, and iu some instances two or more
counties might secure the services of the
ame man: but for obvious reasons the ter
itory iu his jurisdiction ought not to be too
large, l'.ven the sum devoted nt present to
temporary repairs of our rouds would, if
properly expended, soon give us greatly im
proved highways of a moro permanent na
ture, and we would stop throwing money into
nierij dust and mud, as many of our towns,
if not all, are doing at present.
Wo have devoted no little time to the in
vestigation of this subject and we nre sat
isfied that our people can not reap
the highest benefit from our pres
ent rad law and from the funds
xpemifd under its provisions until the
lianges hero outlined, or similar ones, are
made. Ae commend these suggestions to
the highway commission appointed under the
joint resolution of the Legislature by Cov,
Kuller in 18'J'J, consisting of Messrs. (Jeorgo
AV. Hooker of lirattlcboro, O. L. Hinds of
Highgate, and J. W. A'otey of Htirlington,
who are to print their report by .Inly 1 next.
and we hope that these or other changes
may be made which will reult in giving
Vermont as good, if not better roads, than
are to be found in anv other Stnto lu the
Union. The value of good roads is already
reeognl.eil; the question of the hour is, how-
to secure them.

An event which i fraught with deep

one of the noble men of the church iu F.ug-

also to be attributed to the high calling of
tlieolllco itself, as well as the recognied
ability and lovable character of him who

There was a time when n solemn service
of this character and importance would have
had little interest except, or tho members
of tho imiiiediato church concerned; but it
icaks much for the ndvnncenient of tho
common cause ol i nristlamty nun tlio in
creasing recognition of tho full meaning of
brotherly love that the induction of Hishoi:
Hall into ollicial position as head of the
Episcopal church in Vermont is regarded
with deep interest by all denominations.
The spirit of toleration has begotten a feel
ing ukin to Christian fellowship ton greater
or less extent in all churches, and while
thero is iv vast difference in
the inanuer iu which various
denominations respond to this influence,
it is gratifying that tho point has been
reached where all recognize the fact that
the increased spiritual and material welfare
of any one church means the ndvnncenient
of the whole oonimimit v. Kvery church

of its members upon those iu its vicinity
who havo no connection with it, nnd thy ex

Hons of this nature undoubtedly account iu
part for tho genuine interest which has boon
manifested by people of all denominations
throughout the Suite in tho accession of
Bishop Hall to the diocese of Vermont.
Hov. Dr. Hall is tho third bishop of
Vermont, his predecessors having lx-cu the
