T iMnanlnn thnt nnn nt the nrn-llments used by somo of tho supporters of Mr. ' Stlckney In llurllngton with tho Oe.rman element nnd republican saloon keepers was tho statement that Mr. Stlckney was a high llcenno mnn. Whait do tho temper nnce people of Vermont think of this sort of campaign work? rlilliKlolphia'.s Tribute to Gnrflclil. Republics may be ungrateful at times, but our people In all sections of tho coun try havo demonstrated over nnd over again that they are, not unmindful of the services of the nation's heroes. Few of our gieat cities nro without their stately mausoleums, their monumonts, their stat ues or othor tributes to tho memory of Home of our great men, and there Is an Increasing tendency on the part of towns as well as individuals to erect memorials to departed leaders. Philadelphia has Just furnished a fresh Illustration of this tendency In the hand some sttvtue erected to Oarfleld, which stands in FJalrmount Park and which was unveiled on tho ovcnlng of Memorial day. The reports of tho ceremonies attending tho unveiling" ns printed In tho Philadel phia newspapers show that the occasion was worthy of the memory of the lamented j Garfield. Tho exercises have a peculiar Interest for Vermontors, In view of th fnet thnt.lohn n.Cnnvrf.e. rsn . u-nsTInAnf tho active promoters of tho project to ernct tho statue, nnd that ex-Senator Edmunds was ouo of the speakers nt the unveiling. In tho courso of his remarks Mr. Edmunds uttered thoughts worthy of the occasion and deserving- of consideration by thn peo ple everywhere. The following extract will show the abundance of wisdom which tho speaker compressed into a few sen tences: "In what wo now do wo offer a memorial tribute to tho man, tho soldier nnd tho statesman, but, porbnps, still moro do we testify to the spirit and progress of our age and race. There havo been many struggling nnd rnrnost school boys; thero have been many great soldiers; there havo b(en many presidents.

It is manifestations of lovo like this that demonstrate tho placo which tho nation's martyrs hold In tho hearts of tho people, Mr. Sticknoys Democratic. Supporters One of tho peculiar and suggestive fea tures of tho present campaign for tho repubjlcnn nomination for governor in this State Is tho aetrvlty of tho democrats in behalf of Mr. Stlckney's candidacy. It is no secret that the democrats of Ver mont aro unusunlly enlhusiaatlo this year. Their State convention at Montpeller was an unusual ono for them, and they have evidently started in with the intention of making the republican majority In Sept ember as small as possible, for the sake of tho effect that It will have upon the na tional canvass and tho presidential elec tion in November. Onr democratic friends are plnlnly of the opinion that Mr. Stlck noy wpuld be a ,much weaker oandldato than MaJ. Grout, and they feol that with tho former as an opponent they would bo nble to materially reduce tho majority which tho republicans havo sot out to sreuro In tho Green Mountain Stato in this presidential year. That tho democrats nro now seeking In every possible way to bring nbout Mr. Stlckney's nomination Is now a demonstra ted fact. The democratic Montpeller Ar gus has all along sought to discredit MaJ, Grout for tho purposo of promoting Mr. Stlckney's cause, working side by slda with tho Watchman in tho canvass In tho most fraternal manner possible In this week's Issue, however, Its animus Is very plainly evident from the manner in which It seeks to give a wrong Interpretation to MaJ. Grout's declaration In favor of sim plicity nnd economy in the administration of our Stato affair, while Mr. Stlckney's reply to Mr. Meoser covering the same sub ject is passed as ontlrely to democratlo taste. Other democratlcpapcrs In the State have followed tho axampl Of. the Interest ed Argus to a greater or less dtgre In tno oum of tha canvass thus far, and M dereocrUle opinion tn Mr, Sttckney'a fives' hat avon been imported from, out aiqo oi ma oiaic ,J the democratic; press first bet an to attack MaJ, Grout and spoak kindly of Mr. Stlcknoy It was supposed, of course, that they wero merely seeking to havo some fun with tho republicans by egging on tho gubernatorial flfrht; but It Is now evident thnt tho democrnts of Vermont are seeking to play an exceedingly shrewd gamo of politics. Lending democrats have been quietly endeavoring to aid tho promo tion of Stlckney's candidacy and tho re publican caucus In this city to elect dele Kates to tho Btnto convention disclosed tho lengths to which somo of them would go for tho purposo of accomplishing their ends It transpires that a number of leading democrnts In this city played a conspicuous part In working up tho Stlcknoy "wave" In llurllngton, They not only helped to drum up voters upon tho street, but somo ofvhoni were consplouous In the caucus, nndStliey wore among tho most enthusias tic chocrers when tho victory ot'tho Stlck noy ticket was announced. Whether or not eighteen democratic "lloaterB" voted for Htlckney ns is alleged, nnd ns It would have been nn easy matter In tho nbsoneo of a check list, Is not material In this caso for wo nro now speaking of the democra tic sympathy with .Stlckney's candidacy, and thnlr courso Is no more reprehen ilble. than was that of ti certain prominent lion lesldent Stlckney republican from nn ad joining town, who was allowed to cost his ballot. Ouo of tho Stlckney sympathizers, who Is. undoubtedly ns rabid nnd uncompromls lug a democrat ns can bo found In Hurling ton, whs noticed as being conspicuous In his enthusiasm In the caucus. Whon asked what right he had to bo In a repub lican caucus, ho replied that ho was for HUCKIiey brttlUKO HtlCknoy Was a KOJll "icmbcr of his church. Thin eoulfl not havo been tho explanation of tho activity of other democrats In pushing along thu Htlckney boomlrt, for they wero of other denominations. Much less could It explain tho evident anxiety of tho Argus nnd other democratic papers to down his op ponent. In politics, as In war, It Is always a good rule to refuse to do what your enemies desire, particularly when they aro so anxious ns to come Into your camp and plnlnly show their desires. Tho demo crnts of Vermont are plainly working, ns well ns hoping, for tho nomination of Stlckney a tho better man for them to work agalnsl. It this wrro not so they would bo found training their guns upon him nnd working for firout. Hut they nro almost as bitter against Orout as they nro against McKlnley, nnd for similar reasons In both cases. They would prefer to fight weaker men ns candidates at tho polls. Do tho republicans of Vermont desire to play Into tho hands of tho democrats'? If not, they must got out their votes nt tho pylmarios. Vo learn that in tho country towns emissaries of Mr. Stlckney nro ,...1..,.. I r , luivi, uinmK irum nouse ro nouse among tho farmers In his Interest, and It Is fair j 10 supposo they nro peddling mlsrepre- sentatlons similar to those used in secret I In Hurllnirton. A still hunt Is evldentlv . 'ho only hope of Mr. Btleknoy'n friends, j In tho larger towns, where tho voters aro not known to each other, check lists should bo demanded. Wc do not believe Mr. Stlckney would profit In repnbllcnu caucuses by democratic votes. If he knew It; but unfortunately tho democrats seem to bo determined to work for him until September, when they will suddenly chango their tnctlcs and vote against him. Strengthen Canst Defenses.

(From tho St. Albans Messenger.)

Tha delegate referred to, Col, .13, C. Smith, of St. Albans, has explicitly denied tho truth of this statement, having simply Informed a representative of tho Transcript thnt Senator- Edmunds merely expressed the hapo tho Vermont delegation would not act foolishly at St. Ixiuls. Nevertheless this canard will probably furnish tho text for a moderate degree of campaign thun der theso many weeks to como. STATE OFFICERS. (From the St. Johnsbury Republican.)

Cushmnn, a lawyer of your town, has been spending a good deal of time In this and other towns, 1 am told, election eering for Mr. Stlckney for governor. Now I would like to see Mr. Orout elected gov ernor, beonuso I think he Is the best mnn for tho pluce; but I cannot afford to spend my tlmo running about tho county tn work for lilm and 1 cannot see how this Mr. Gushmau, If he. has any law practice nt all, can put so much tlmo Into working for Mr. Stlckney unless ho Is paid, or has been promised somo olllcc, If Stlckney In elected. Now I do not wnnt Mr. Cushmnn or any other mnn' to come hero from nurllngtou to tell mo how to vote, and our people re sent the attempts of him andothex lawyers from your city lo lead them around by tho nose. The rcpulille;ans of Essex rnn make up their minds about governor without nny outside help, nnd If your Hurllnglon lawyers havo any axes to grind through Stlckney's election, they must not nsk us to turn llio grlnilstono.

To the Kdltor of the Free Press: H Is no discredit for any good citizen to wish, or seek In an honornblo way, lo be representative) of his town or county In tho legislature of tho State. It Is rather to be commended ns taking the place of honorable service for. tho commonwealth. Accordingly, as the session of the legis lature approaches, not a fow worthy citi zens aru. aspiring for thjs honorable ner vlcn. Am It is creditable for the citizen to osplro for this honor, It Is equally cred itable for tho town to seek to furnish a represimlatlvo for tho county In tho Sen ate. Hut every town cannot be yearly grntllletl In this desire, so a precedent, or rule of ofder and alternation, has come to prevail In tho towns of the county, In re spect to county representation. Accord ing to this rulo It belongs to the town of llllston this year to furnish one of tho senators of Chittenden county. So plnln is this, that nn honorable citizen of an other town in tho county a town whore thcro Is an aspirant for tho nenatorshlp has written to n citizen of this town, re minding him that It belongs to Wllllstnn now lo furnish tho candidate, and urging him to both aspirn and work diligently for tho place. Hut H'llllstoii has In ad vanco of this letter bethought herself of her right and privilege, and chosen a dele gation lo tho nominating convention at Hurllnglon on tho Clh Inst a delegation that will present to the convention a citi zen of Huston for the senatorial honor.

Mr. Iliiighani'i Stutumant Uxplalncd lu Hon. V. L. Hurnnp, To tho Editor of the Freo Press: I havo looked for a possible denial of statements mado by Mr. M. A.

Mr. Hlngham Is well oual fled for tho position, and tho voters of this county will make no mlstako In nominating him for Judgo ot probate. UNDERHILL. May DO, ISM. MR. HURNAP'S STATEMENT. In view of tho complicated situation re garding tho ofllce of the Judge of probate a representative of tho Freo Press inter viewed Hon, w. L.

Mr. Rurnap said: "It Is truo as stated by Mr. lllngham in his letter to tho Free Press' that Judge Wales said thero was a misapprehension touching his candidacy and that he (Judga Wales) desired another election If tho people wcro satisfied with his services, Judgo Wales said at tho conference that he had never mado tho statement two years ago thnt he woftld not bo a eandl dato for ro-electlon nor authorized such a statement. Moreover Judgo Wnles said ha had never hoard of this report until a short tlmo beforo tho conference In ques tion, whereupon Mr. lllngham said If Judge Wales desired to bo a candidate again ho would not run against him, It Is also true, as stated by Mr. Bingham, that Judgo Wales said at the conference that ho would not be a candidate again If re-elected this year and It was thought best In view ot tho situation that a state ment to this effect should be published, Hoforo the statement was prepared, how over, the article referred to by Mr. Bing ham waa published before I supposed any thing would be said on the subject of county politics at that early dato, and while I waa attending- court at Brattle boro, i ''Upon my return I at oncoad,vlsed Mr. Bingham by letter of my surprise at the early appearance .of tho Free Press ar ticle and stated that I was reariv tn hum the result or our conference published, as originally intended.

Candidates for Senators, State's Attorney mill Various Cciunty Officers, Mlddlebury, May 31. Thcro la bound to ho a llttlo fun In Addison County polities pretty noon, as the County Convention to nominate, tho ltcpubllcon candidates for county omcrs has been called tor June IB, In Mlddlebury, and there nro many as pirants for most of the olllces. Tho Mld dlebury caucus to elect delegates to tho County convention will be held next Wed- nesday evening, Juno 3rd, and the S3 dele gales from this town will havo command ing Influence In tho convention, nut may In tho convention this year. It Is hoped that they are sottled. Hefore going Into County politics nny further , It might bo well to look over thn generul situation In tho State. The pcoplo down this way were much disappointed, though not at all dismayed, over the result of tho caucus In Hurllnglon on the clovernors,hlp. It nt onco became appar ent hero that It wouldn't do to let things run lilt or miss. Tho revelation of the se cret work of tho Stlckney people In Hui llnglou lias been sufllclent to open the eyes of tho Grout people In this County to tho necessity of going to work nnd doing good work. The Mlddlebury caucus will not be held until Juno 10, but most of tho . tho opposition, thcro will be no chnnce to i (I, Him v u... it j j steal a march on Mr. Grout's friends dow this way. Hut It Is certain that a great deal of work has been done and Is being done In secret for Mr. SMckney, nnd It be hooves tho friends of Major Grout to dis cover tho play and do their best to check mate It. It Isn't profrablo that tho Stlck ney workerH will try to piny any such gamo In Mlddlebury ns thn Republicans hero nrn now up to their dodge, hut they nre liable to do It In the smaller towns In tho County whoso caucuses will come ut tho same tlmo with or Immediately follow that of Mlddlebury. So, fore-warned Is fore-armed. Ever since the McKlnley fe ver over-ran tills part of Vermont, "but llt tlo Interest seems to havo been taken In tho Statu cnmpnlgn, but now, especially, slnco tho nurllngtou caucus, every body seems to be walking up to tho necessity of Immediate ajid telling work. Now. ns to tho county convention. Things arc In a somewhat Inchoate state at present, but tho probabilities aro that Dr. A. A. Dean of Hrlstol will lie nomin ated for Senator from tho North, or New Haven district without opposition, Messrs Wlllard F. Ilarnes of Addison nnd llcuhen Parker of Fcnisbiirgh, whose nnmes had been put forward by their friends, having pactlcally withdrawn from the canvass In tho South district It looks as there might be something ot a contest. Tho friends ot Dr. W. N. liatt of Shoreham, the present Senator for the South district, havo nbout given up any Intention of trying to get him another nomination, and of courso if ho Is not re-nominated, Senator D. 15. Lewis of Vergenncs would not expect nn other nomination. As a matter oL fact, both gentlemen may bo conpldereiV'out of tho race. Judge Slade of Mlddlebury has been frequently mentioned ns a lilting candidate for Senator from tho South end, but ho is not turning a hand over to se curo the nomination, and If he gets It, It will como to him unsolicited. Tho gentle men who Is most talked of nt present for the nomination is Mr. D. II. Hennctt of : lirldnort. who has been a merchant thero for several years, Is a prominent citizen, a cood all-around man. and one who would do honor to tho olflr.o It he should secure tho nomination. Thcro nro several other aspirants for tho senatorshlp In the South district, all good men, but their names alV so many that to tell tho truth, they would bo literally two numerous to mention. However It goes, the candidate nominated will surely be a good man nnd a good Republican. Tho only two other matters about which thero rany be any contest are the State's Attorneyship nnd tho Probate Judgeship for tho New Haven district, which Hon. John D. Smith of Vergenncs has held for many years. Mr. Smith has got to bo a very old man and the friends of Lawyer F. W, Tuttle, Mayor ot tho city, nre going to make n fight to get Mr. Tuttle nomin ated for the position.
