The outcome ot tho recent case of Per
kins againt tho Houston Texas Central
I'.allway company is worthy of note. Mr.
and Mrs. Charles Perkins were passcngets
in a Pullman sleeper. At night drunken
mm were nilowed to enter the sleeper and
to nso profano anel improper language,
which caused Mrs. Perkins great mental
suffering and caused her to lose her
night's sleep. Mr. Perkins sued the rail
road company and tho jury gavo him a
verdict of $300. This verdict has been sus
tained by the court ot criminal appeals of
Texas.
In view of the cases now boing contest
fd before the Supromo Court of the. Unl
et! States Involving the question of tho
nnstltutlon.illty of the clauto of tho war
revenue act Impo-drg a tax on inherit
ances it is Interesting to note that last
year tho commissioner of internal rovenuo
collected fl.233,433 as taxes on legacies.
The commissioner has now instructed col
lectors throughout tho country not to
force tho payment of the inheritance tax,
but to .iwalt tho decision of the Supremo
Court in tho matter. In this connection It
may bo noted that among the cases pend
ing Is that involving the will of the late
Cornelius Vanderbilt, on which It ls esti
mated tho ta-i will be at least J),000,W0.
The good souls who were predicting tho
disruption ot the republican party in the
Empire State aro now forced to witness
the spectacle ot Piatt nnd Roosevelt
agreeing upon a programme for the repub
licans during tho coming session of the
Legislature, by means of mutual conces
sions. Their programme Is said tobetodrop
"Lou" Payn from tho ofllco of insuranco
commissioner when his term expires; to
cut tho term of tho mayor ot New York
to two years and to let pollco legislation
alone. In this connection it will bo of In
terest to learn that tho coming session
of the New York legislators at Albany Is
likely not to bo prolific In Important meas
ures, nnd there Is a general tendency to
cut down legislation to tho smallest pos
sible compass. In time our neighbors of
New York may come to tho point of
adopting biennial sessions ot their Legis
lature. Ju(le" Powers on Polyjnmy,
Tho position of tho representatives of
Vermont lu Congres.s has neve- been
equivocal on tho subject of tho suppres
sion nf Mormon polygamy; nor has their
opposition been conllncd to sentimental
disapproval or simple denunciation. lu
f.ect tho history of tho warfare on that
"relic of barbarism" Miowh thai tho Stato
which gave birth to Drlgham Young, has
been In tin very forefront In the enact
ment ot the moasurrs for tho suppression
of the national disgrace ot polygamy. It
was Justin S. Morrill of Vermont who,
when he was a congressman introduced
and cnrrled through tho first bill against
1'Jlygamy. Tho Kdmund.s law, ns every
body knows, is the existing statute. It
may not be as well known that when thu
1 111 for thu admission ot Ptnh ns a Stuto
was under consideration, tho repivsinta
Uve from our First district, Congressman
Powers, offered and secured tho passage
of an amendment providing that the Slalo
constitution which the people wero about
lo adopt, mint contain a clause forever
prohibiting polygamy; and further pro
viding that such prohibitory clause must
not bo repcabd or changed without tho
ei nsent of Congress. Otlur States may
chnngn their constitution ns tliey wlll;
but the Stato of Utah can never chango
her constitution to as lo permit polygamy,
for nothing Is more certain than that Con
gress will never consent to nny letting
down of tho bars, on that subject.
New Phase or tho Sampson-Schley
Dispute.
Admiral Dewey must thank his four
starB that he Is no longer obliged to strug
gle for recognition of his rank, when ho
contemplates the Ignoble controversy be
tween tho friends of Sampfon and Schley
-h strife whcse ond no prophetic eyet has
yet been able to foresee, It was quite
generally assumed Hint tho seml-olilclnl
stntcment regarding Schley's stutur,, tc
ronlly inado by Secretary Long of tho
navy department would give tho dispute
an cft'ectlvo quietus, but that tlttcruf.co
seems merely to have changed tho trend
of the controversy, which hns broken out
In a new direction, tho latest phase of tho
dlsputo Involving tho project to create
Sampson mid Schley vlcc-ndmlrnls.
Word comes from Washington that the
administration has been tirgul to settle
this unfortunate nnd unyecmly wr.inelo
by making Sampson nnd Schley vice mi
nerals In tho order named.' The friends
of Schley opposo this proposition owing
to tho fact that this would reverse thn
comparative rank ot the two commanders.
At the pres.m tlmo Sohlcy stnnds two
ntimb"rs nhe-id of Sampson, having reach
cd that position In tho usual order of
promotion for services nnd tho retirement
of olllcers abovo him. It ho wcro to bo
promoted from tha position ot rear ad
mlnul to vice admiral, It would bo with
the erudition that Sampson should pass
him nnd stand ii'-xt to Admiral Dewey.
Schley's friends mo undci stood to hold
that It ho Is worthy of promotion at all,
It should bn In tho pioscnt order.

Vermont's Mineral Kesonrccs.

VERMONT POLITICS.
The "Attempt lo Kill On" J5r. Prouty.
Itefcrring to a statement by the New
port Kxpress to the effect that before Mr.
Prouty's nnmo was considered by tho
President for tho position of Interstate,
eommeiio commissioner, ho signified his
willingness to appoint (Sen. Grout lo the
position; nnd that Gen. Grout declined,
and suggested Prouty In his stead. C. F.
Itanniy, en., of Newport says:
"I am Informed by a gentleman who Is
in a position to know the facts that tho
President never signified his wllllngni .-s
to appoint Gen. Grout. That no other
name than Mr. Prouty's was vresented to
the President.
It ls true that a powerful political friend
of Gen. Grout suggested that ho try to
secure the commlssloncrshlp, nnd prom
ised him support to that end, and that
Gen. Gr. ut declined It, saying his ambi
tion was for the sonatorshlp, and that ho
had no desire for tho position of commlrf
slonor. The attempt to kill off Mr. Prouty by
means of the commlssloncrshlp having
failed, an attempt seems to bo made- now
to kill him olt by misrepresentation.
"We trust the papers which have copied
your Item ns n 'piece of leislde history'
wlll glv as much space to tills second
chapter ot It as they hnvo to the first.
There Is a vast difference between Doing
offered a position by the Pre: idmt, nnd
being offeted tho support of a friend, to
secure the President's approval."

THR LIGHT FROM HEAVEN.
Long ago, near David's clty
Un a shepherd band,
Fell a glory such as never
Shone tn se-a or land.
In tho fields, Iho shepherds watching,
Guarding flecks by night,
Hear a song of wondrous beauty,
See a hcav'nly light.
From the East tho Wlso Men journey,
Se, king Tor a King;
To the Monirch costly Incense,
Gold and ir.yrrh they bring.
Light that shone on humblo shepherds.
Guarding llocks at rest;
Star that guided Eastern sages.
In their kingly quest;
Roth, alike, from hoaven shining,
To the Christ child lead;
Prlneo nnd peasant, wlso and simple
Come lo Him in need.
Lordly king and humble seivnnt,
Ily the self-samo way,
Come ns did tho sage nnd shepherd
That llrst Chrlstmis day.
And tho glory which from heaven
Fill o'er shepheids then,
Shines to-day, and lights forever
All tho ways of men.

CURREN T COMMENT.
7h3C..nCir.lonal Situation ns It Appears
.
tn llin eeonrt District
This district is not up yet with that
over the mountain In its riop of congres
sional candidates, but It h'ns made u good
start. Tho fourth appeurs In the an
nouncement that Col Porter H. Dale of
Island Pond ls lii tho field and tho pa
peis up that way my ho starts "with h.s
own county, at least, enthusiastically
united in his support and that ls moio
ll.an can be said of Col. Kittredgo llas
klns of Ilrattleboro." Hasklns ovidcnily
Is tho nun they fear most, and rightly
also, for he Is not only pretty suro ot h.s
own county but ho is the only aspirant
likely to develop much moro thun lor til
trtngth, and therefore the ono who enn
best stand a multiplicity of local candi
dacies. Stafford nf St. Johnsbury com. s
nearer to him than any of tho others In
suungth throughout the district, but he Is
hampeicd by formidable opposition nt
home on the ground Hint lie Is nn ex-mugwump
and by tho complication of Gi out's,
Rates' nnd Prouty's candidacies as well as
that of Dale In that section of the state,
while Hasklns, since Judgo Read's with
drawal, has the whole Meld clear down
this way, except for a llttleta'k at Mellows
Falls that will be recognized before tho
end as too boyish to count.
The latest indications are that the talk
nf a Windsor county candidate will not
materialize, and If that be so. It will bo
another Important factor for Hasklns.
Nothing of course ls certain in politics
and especially in a situation like the
present that offers such a Held for the ex
ercise of the proclivities of Vermont n -puWIean
politicians to trade and dicker
But the f linnet's of Hasklns are unmistak
ably by far the best of all. BrattlejoiO

MOUNTAIN RULE THREATENED.
The "mountain line" rule is threaten 'd'
If the proposed plan for re-apporiionment
of representation In the republican na
tional convention should prevail, Vermont
would be entitled to nine delegates In
stead of eight as at present. It Is ca y
enough to select eight men without of
fense, by adheilng to tho rule and choos
ing four from each side, ot tho mountains.
Rut where shall this odd man come from?
That's tho question. And, by tho way, Is
there u (ommon-stiiso reason for fol
lowing tho mountain line rule, anyway?
Isn't It more of a subterfuge than a nocs
slty? Doesn't It simply spare mn the
cmbaiussment of making a choice some
times when they don't want to? St. Al
bans Messenger.
A REFERENDUM DEMANDED.
The law (tho prohibitory law) ia
the work of the "great body of tho
people of Vermont." Il was not
true when tho law wns tlrst adopted v h n
the Idea was now and had tho advantage
of a great moral enthusiasm behind it
without tho saving effect of experience,
and when it was the chief Issue of the
electlcn of 1S.",3 when the voto stood 20.fl0
to 1S.142. That It Is not truo now vas prac
tically confts-ed by the last legislature
when It refused to submit the quesilon
of a vote of tho people. Stripped of all
subterfuges, tho reason for that refusal
was a fear that tho people, would repudi
ate the law if given n direct chance at it,
for it was perfectly obvious that If, after
a ir years trial tho verdict should be one
of approval, and In favor of tho continu
ance of the law, it would add trermtidous
ly to its nural force. Brattloboio Re

HARDLY THE I1LOODIEST RATTLE.
The total of 43$ killed at Modder River

the century. Tho actual comparison with
the 7,0.0 French killed nt Austerlltz, S3.

KSSHX COUNTY'S CANDIDATK.
Among tho list of prospective candidates

ho has never expressed himself publicly
upon this subject, so lar us wo can dis
cover. That ho would balance equally
well In tho scales with the other cnndl-
dates for this ofllco there U tint llttla
room to doubt. A bitter light will bo wag
