Mm Yntirn- PennleVs Rnnletv of nt,-t.,tnn r.inn,. ,i v Tn. I !., TT,,in (n nth.r .li-nnmtnatlons. has had a wonderful growth. Tho latest re .,wf.,i -mwM.. Thn Intest re- port shows that tho lenguo has l.',,007 chnptcrs with a membership of 1,100,0. Tho amount of good that these organiza tions are doing is Inestimable. It Is to bo hoped tho managers ot tho Vermont llorso Breeders' association will porslst In carrying out their published In tention to revive tho old time horso show In connection with their annual exhibitions so that popular Interest will not centre bo completely In tho rncos. With this end In view cnlnrged premiums nro to bo of fered for exhibits of horses, and this stop ought to result In bringing out tho lead ing representatives of tho different noted families of horses from all parts ot the State. In commenting upon Vermont's posses sion of eloven ex-governors tho esteemed Boston Herald says the fact that their combined terms of office cover a period of only twenty-eight years "shows that sho rotates them rather frequently for a Stale where ono party has held sway nil ot tho tlmo." It would strike tho unprejudiced observer that Vermont was doing her share In turning out governors but strango as It may seem some of our peoplo would llko to havo tho speed of our gubernator ial machlno accelerated. As a mntter of fact no small sharo of our population Is composed of ex-governors and those who hopo to bo governors. Our woods may bo said to bo full of good timber. Tho Cuban ItcNoltitlons. Whatever dlfferencos ot opinion may havo exlstcl ns to tho advisability of rec ognizing tho Cuban revolutionists us bel ligerents by tho United States thero can reasonably bo but ono vie as to the results of such action so far as the attitude of tho Spanish government Is concerned. Thero will bo no wnr between tho United States and Spain, If the latter oan help It. A country which cannot BUbduo a compar atively small population like that ot Cuba ovnn thntlt-h tl,n lnttnp ,ta nftA-1,. ont.r.ltn.1 I 1 I l,c i w.u. nun uuiu ol war, woiim natx.iy caro - to fly In tho fnco of Undo Sam, merely bo cause tho Cubans wcra recognized as be ing in a stato of war. What the effect ot tho recognition ot tho belligerency of tho Cuban patriots will bo upon tho causo of the revolution. Is a matter that remains to be dotermlned. Tho resolutions aro concurrent, not Jolnl, so that they do not require tho of ficial sanction or disapproval of tho prep I dent, In themselves. They stand ns the embodiment of tho sentiment ot Congress on tho subject of Cuban belligerency. The fact remains, however, that tho passage of theso resolutions will mean no moro for tho Cubans than a consensus of opin ion of tho press, or of public men Indiv idually, unlesr. tho resolutions aro ac companied by further action. Tho Cuban revolutionists will occupy tho same status so far ns this country Is con cerned ns they did before tho resolutions wero passed, unless President Cleveland now Issues a proclamation embodying the .sentiment to which expression has been given by Congress. Tho resolutions as thoy stand will undoubtedly encourage the Cuban patriots to renewed efforts for lib erty, but tho revolutionists will atlll ro mnlri without the rights ot belllgcrcnti: un til the president ofilcluly recognizes their belllgoreucy. As to Mr. Cleveland's probable action, It Is not safo to predict. Judging from his pust conduct of our foreign relations, ho will not bo Inclined to hurry In Issuing a proclamation like that desired by tho Cu bans. When ho narrowly escaped plung ing this country Into a wnr with England over the Venezuelan boundary, ho felt that he was In a flold that had been en tirely unexplored, and ho became In tho fullest senso of the word a "plunger." In overy other case, however, and espec ially whero tho Inltlatlvo had been taken oy somo ono else, ho has been tho most reluctant ot followers, even It ho has notiw stlckno' 01 Ldlow, In somo respects turned back. If President Cleveland had Inaugurated the movement for tho recog nition ot Cuban belligerency ho would have pushed It to a consummation wen at tho risk of war with Spain. But now that a republican Congress has taken the Inltla tlvo tho president may standstill even It he doej not back up or kick. Encouraging For llorso Brccdors Vermont horso breeders will rcjolco over tho announcement that tho horse market, which has been sadly depressed for somo time, shows signs of marked Improvement. Boston, New York and Philadelphia buy ers hayo begun to go through tho country for tho purpose of picking up tho finer grades of carriage and rood horses, and It is encouraging to note that tho figures of fered are better than have provatled for a number of years. Our advice to Vermont horsemen, as heretofore. Is consequently to contlnuo to breed for market only tho best strains of stylish, -nervy roadsters. It is to be expected that the electrlo trolley and the bicycle will persist in dis placing horses, and it Is not wholly impos sible that tho horseless carriage, at an early day, may alio have an influenco tending to depross the horse market. Tho fact remains, however, that the horses of which Vermont has boasted, havo not as a rule been found In past years tugging away at overloaded street cars In tho lareer cities, Vermont produces plugB, and far too many of them, but tho horses 'that won fame for our breeding interests were, and are ytt, to be found attaohed to wealthy .men's carriages in all parts of the country j and no matter what innova tion's may become allies ot the trolley and tKp blojrclo, men ot this class will con tinue ( eall for fine driving horses. The jiorp breeders' exhibitions havo ill?' ' been of material nsslstnnce to tho breed ing Intorests of Vermont, but every horBO mati knows tho benefit would hnvo been muoh greater If moro care had been con orally taken during tho past half dozen years In breeding. When farmers as well as horsebreoders In general realize that It costs llttlo If any, moro to rnlso a good stylish roadster that will command nhand- somo prlco In market than It does to pro duco a "plug ugly" that can scarcely ba given away, there will bo Bomo hopo of a return of Vermont's former prcstlgo an a Stato producing lino horses. "What Senator Morrill 1)1(1 Not Say. Tho Now York Journal Interviewed a number of republican leaders on tho ques tion "Do tho recent events In republican affairs Indlcnto a return to SIcKlnleylsm nnd a high protcctlvo tariff by tho repub lican party?" Senator Morrill did not enro to bo Interviewed nnd the Journnl mild: Senator Morrill, chairman of tho Senate commlttco on finance, which Is to tho Senate what tho ways and means com mltteo Is to tho House, framcr of tho Mor rill tariff of war times, tho first republican tnrlff bill ever enacted Into law, "thcOrand Old Man" of the republican party, lacking but twelve days of being olghty-slx, rte ellned to tnlk.

Whnt Vnrlnna Vermont Ciintnnpornrlon Aro Hiiylng mi thn Sub) ret, The hearty support of a big majority ot Vormout's newspapers Is a glowing tri bute to Mr. Grout's worth as a citizen and a public man. llennlngtou Uanner. Joslah Grout Is accused ot being u farm er, a lawyer and a manufacturer, and, con sequently, is not a person to bo governor of Vermont. This Is tough. Wo aro op posed to "class" governors, thereforo wo favor Mr. Grout ns ho would retirement moro Interests than Mr. Stlckney, who is u lawyer, possibly could. Tho "arguments" used by Grout's opponents aro on a nar with the foregoing. No otto can question Mr. urours ability, and tho fact that he desires tho iwsltlon Is not a substantial reason for urging peoplo to vote against him. On the contrary, It will commend him to thousands. Who would think of condemning McKlnley, Allison, Reed or Morton for seoklng a nomination for the presidency of tho United States? As gov ernor Mr Grout would look after tho In terests of tho cntlro Stnte, performing tho arduous duties of thnt high office In a manner that would meet with tho approval of all classes ot citizens.

While other papers In tho State havo for omo tlmo been qulto busy measuring up tho various candidates for gubernatorial honors wo havo looked on In silence, not because wo had no preference, but because vo thought thero was amplo tlmo to dis cuss their merits, Whllo soveral gentle, men of eminent ability havo been named ror mis nonornbio osltlon tho leading If not thn only candidates, at present aro Major josiati urout of Derby nnd Hon. W, tho qualifications of theso gentlemen nro similar, Doth have, repeatedly roprcsent- eu tneir respective towns In tho Stato Leg islature, each has served as speaker ot tho jiouso ana each has a good knowledge of tho law, but In our Judgment, Major Grout Is possessed of a riper cxporlonce, a moro mature Judgment, a greater and moro va ried knowledge of public affairs and men than Is possessed by Mr. Stlekuoy. Early In tho civil war Major Grout entered, tho urmy ns a member of tho First Vermont cavalry, rocclved a wound in 1SC3 which nearly proved fatal nnd was given a com mission for distinguished gallantry. For nis long, 'initmui and efficient services as a legislator ho Is entitled to tho sunnort of every Vermonter, and for his gallantry In tho field to their gratitude. Wo heart ily endorse tho candidacy ot MaJ. Grout, MAJ. GROUT'S QUALIFICATIONS. (From tho Bennington Banner.) One Journal elves tho following as the reason why Mr. Stlckney is the best qual ified to fill tno olllco of governor: Ho Una been for a quarter of a century and Is now a careful student of Stato leg islation, and his position during all theso years has been such as to offer the best possible facilities for such a study, Tho same, is truo of Mr. Grout. Ills position as (speaker ot the House during tho lost two aceslons of the Legis late has brought him into tho closest touch with present-day legislation, and legislative matters now under discussion. Mr. Grout's occupancy of the speaker's ohalr in '81, '80, and '88 gave him tho Bamo touch with present-day legislation. His intelligence, his practical Judgment, his Interest In and aptitude for publlo affairs, his devotion to the welfare of the State aro not open to suspicion. Neither axe Grout's. He knows tho people now on the stage of action and is known by them. This is also the case with Mr. Grout. In the case of Mr. Grout the above doea not exhaust the list of his qualifications, Nu-HpUi an mH-paln pUL MAYOR PECK INAUGURATED, DISCUSSES CITY AFFAIRS IN A BUSI NESS-LIKE MESSAGE. II, J.
