GREATRALLY. Residents of "Spunky La moille" Are Enthusiasti cally Republican. M'CULLOUGH Made Two Strong Speeches Lamoille County Launches a Boom for Shaw for President in 1908 Secretary of the Treasury Sounds Key note of the Campaign on Tariff Revision McCullough Asks That Clement Be Buried September 2 So He Will Dig Downwards F. C. Archibald Handles the Bolter and His Fraudulent Claims Without Gloves Great Demonstration for Dr. W. S. Webb. Mornsvllle, Aug. 15. rrobably the. most notable political gathering ever held In this county was that of the republicans hold here tills afternoon under the ausplces nf the State committee. It was 'intended for n county rally and In this the mana gers were not disappointed, as every town in the county was loprisenteel, some by very large delegations. Tho e'rowd was ariously estimated at freun 3,01 to 7,"0i peoplo. The rally was held on the" camp ground eif the St. Albans M. E. district, which is located near the fair ground. The vast seating capacity was not enough to hold tho crowd and from the enthusiasm displayed by the largo audience It Is cer tain that old "Spunky Lamoille" will be in lino and cast tho usual large vote for the regular lepubliean ticket. Tho crowd was not slow In giving their approval to all that was said in favor of General Mc Cullough, the Republican jiarty and plat form. Another feature which added much to the occasion was tho presence of Secretary Leslie M. Shaw, who kept the cloje at tention of his hearers, many of them form er townsmen and playmates ot his youth. Secrotar Shaw reaelml here last evening and Is visiting his stepmother. This forenoon In- drove about tho plac holding receptions here nnd there with old friends. The business places wore llberaHy decorated with flags and bunting in his honor. Many of the Invited guests were late arriving Oeneial Mi Cullnitgh driving hole from N- wpoil and llr. . Sewaul Webb came by speeial train fiom Portland, Me, th's morning in order to be hole this after noon. The Hon. Roger W. Hulhurd of Hyde Park, member of the Slate committee called for order and introduced the lion. II. IIonr Powers as the chairman of tho meeting. After congratulating everyone upon the attendance and upon the large numbers present he said he was satlsilod that old "Spunky Lamoille" would have nothing to do with the bolter and woulel speak in no uncertain terms of her ap proval of Ceneral McCullougli and tho platform of the Republican party. He then Introduced P. C. Archibald of Manchester. Mr. Archibald Is a forcible speaker and lost no time in getting to his subject anil showing Clement, the bolter, in his true light. He did not spare him In the least. He said that Clement has been making statements that were mis statements throughout the State and thisa misstatements served an admirable pur pose for Clement tn bolt and that it was hard for him to Und an excuse for so do ing.. Mr. Clement demanded a plank In the platform favoring a high license law with a referendum and this demand was acceih it to. Mr. Archibald after telling the history of the convention said that he beltovee that Clement had contemplated to bolt If ho was not nominated as his action after his delegates left thu hall would make It appear so. Another excuse of Clement for bolting was tho action of tho convention In orange and Orleans couty, which had passed a resolution favoring a prohibitory law, although ho himself in Rutland couu. ty convention tried to bolt the very plat form he had succeeded in having framed, bv trying to have his county pass a leso- lution laveiiing a license law without a rnf. erendum. Clement claims that the Repub lican party cannot be relied upon but no one can point to a slnglopiedge made by the parly either State or national which has not been kept. Another charge made by Clem ent ts that republican officials were dis honest. The speaker then showed up tho in accuracies In Clement's statements regard ing Slate expense anil asked if Mr. Clem ent was honest in his political methods. Mr, Aichlb.'ild showed up thu bolter's iegH, latlve enreer and aHkrd wnnt ho had cer done to form legislation to benefit the tax payers or lessen the burden of taxpayeis. If the olllclals were dishonest, why didn't he start an Investigation. Hei had ihe op portunity. SHAW POR PRESIDENT IN 1002, Secretnrj Shaw was then Introduced as a Lamoille county boy, born in a log house., Although he left us many years ago he bud never bee.n forgotten and his use lo fa mo has beeni gratifying to the people ot Ibis county. I Ie was electee! gov . ernor of Iowa because ho had the courage to declare lie was in favor of a gold stand, ard and was the jilnneer of the gold stand, nrd In the West, He has made finance the .study of a llfo time and it was no wonder President Roosevelt asked him to enter the cabinet. Judge Powers said be wished to launch the candidacy of Leslie M, Shaw for Presi dent In liios nnd called for cheers which were given heartily. Secietary Shaw after few remarks about his school life hern said thnt In hl Stntc republicans voted the republican ticket, in early life he did not rare any thing about caucuses or conventions and never attended them. He helped foot the bills nnd spoke wherever assigned. Tlje only phase of politics he, cared about was the principles nf tho two Rrcat parties. Hp did not care much about men, bill morh for principles, saying that parties do not di vide ai cording to men but principles. Sec retary Shaw Illustrated his speech with many funny anenlotes anil stories which, kept his heareis lu good humor. Jlelow follows an nbstiact, "I have been (uoteil as opposed lo n re vision (if tho tariff. I liavo never opposed AND SHAW. readtustment of the tariff. 'Whenever Congress reaches the conclusion that tho friends of protection are strong enough to conservatively modify certain schedules, so is tn meet changed conditions and at tho same time successfully resist tho ef forts of the opposition to revise tho entire tariff laws thus paralyzing business for a reason, I am In favor of It. I have expi ess eel some doubt, however, about the wisdom of instructing by resolutions, or exacting pledges, from candidates for Congiess, when the effect is liable to ptecipllalr a protracted debate with very uncertain r- -suits. There ought to be some more tan gible reason for sueh a dangerous expedi ent than Ihe existence of a sentiment lu certain localities, now as always, that de mands .1 n dm Hon of the tariff in articles there onsiimeil and not produced, while It stands ready to tight to a finish any reduc tion on Ihe things thoie produee.il. I for one must have a vry bitter and ielenlless enemv before 1 will consent to entry yel low fever germs Into my home town. Don't misunderstand mo, I am not comparing tho reailju-tmenl of a schedule here and theie to an epidemic. Hut I do declare theie has never been a ielsion of the tariff In the in. tereet if fioe trade, or for revenue only, that has nut prmon as fatal to business as the plagues of Egypt. "I have never seen the time, since I have glv 11 public auctions consideration that I would not reduce the rate on quite a large niiiiilu-i of items, nor when I wouhl not In crease the rate nn other Items. U Is not llk dy that any member nf either House of Congress c or vote-el for a tariff bill entire ly to his liking, nor is It probable that anv president ever slgiud a bill that he would not have changed In some particular had U been in his power I am willing to c. m ede that ennilltlins change, and that tho old Monill bill of the sixties, for instance, .vnen the country was involved In war.

Business depression dissipates both or ganized and iinoiganlzed capital, Enforced 'idleness means financial ruin to Indhldu nls. to business firms, and to corporations both great and small. On the contrary, nuslness prosperity Inspired hopefulness. lit encourages the individual to re-acli out, to expand, to buy more land, more houses more uittle. to elect more stores, hulld more shops and to embark 111 new enter prises. It leads to the organization of .corporations. It ln.spiies both dreams of I great things and the consummation of gi gantic enterprl.-os. Tt leads tn the combin ation of capital and the organization of 1 labor Does anyone suppose, that the nil thracito coal miners eould bo kept together 1 If there wore a million men out nf employ ment nnd their famllli s lugging br, ad' "Will anyone contend that they could be sustained were It not lor a creat nrniv of bituminous roal mlneis who ire receiving EUch compensations as enables them to contribute a dollar a week for the malnten- lanc-' of their brethren? The protective tari'f Is not tho mother of trusts, though it ils Ihe Parent of conditions that make It I profitable for capital to combine nnd con. genial lor labor to oigHiilzo. Tho Republican partv In my State re cently read rmed the tariff platfoim of I pull. This has eau.-.ed considerable com ment. It has been misrepresented, not eiulie as peislstently but In the same wav that the memnrnhle speech of I'resldent McKln. ley at IJuffalo, has been misrepresented, misquoted, misconstrued, and misapplied This platform was unanimously adopted both years. Its statements are ncademl cnlly correct. Every man In tho United States, republican or democrat., lull ves In the truth of Its utterance's. It declares "In favor of such changes In the iniirr from, time to time as becomes advisable thiough the. progress nf our ludustiies nnd their changing relations to the comment; of the world." Is there any one who Is nut "In favor of such changes In the tariff from lime to time as nro advisable?" 1 am will ing the Jury shall be polled on that pro j.ositlon. Sn .-ay we all. It also declares "In favor of any modification of tariff selie. Inks that may ho required to prevent th'dr affording shelter to monoply." And. again, we all say "Aye, sir." tn the proposition Theie may be qulle, a radical dlffeionce of opinion as to thn truth of the Implied nd mlvslon that the protective tariff does af ford shelter tn monoply, but there would bo nn ellfferenee of opinion aliout removing It If II did afford such shelter A fo-v days ago the butchers. In conven tion assembled, declared in favor of abol ishing the tariff on cattle and meat to the end that this suposed shelter for the alleg ed meat trust might be removed; but I am disposed to think the good farmers of my State would vote quite unanimously against such an experiment. Uy the trend of the upevohes made at the butchers' con vention I discover a sentiment well nigh universally expressed there that meal 1h leig nionopoliyed by ihe great packers, Hut I happen to hnv a tenant nut In Iowi who has a tine bunch of cnttlo. on whl h nn (nicker holds a lien of any kind, and ho writes mo that he is willing to sill them to butchers If thv will pay as much ns the pnrkcrs offer, I aiti quite sure the peoplf, would ns soon buy Ibis meat of the but h era us of the packets, Thus tin ie Is af folded :i splendid nporlnnltv 'it ai 1 to make all linu I nn. m give the farmer as much money for his beeves and give tho peopl as much beef ror tbelr money, Suppose we take th tar iff off beef and then suppose the herds of cattle from Mexico nnd South Amorlca nrc brought In by the hundred thoeinand. They will find their way to the stock yards nnd the butchers will be compelled to bid against the packers then as now. No! the removal of tho tariff on live-stock and meat would not restore the butchers to business. It might ruin the farmers but the packers could stand It; for nothing less than organized capital could enter the Import meat business with packing hnusei In foreign countries, refrigerating shlpe and other expensive equipment. I happen to' kno.v that at least one, and I under stand two of the big pncklng herusos, have; had m"ri looking Into the South American fleld for more than two years. The farmer, ns It Is, has ample reason to be apprehen sive. I hnve taken occasion to look thl nat ter up since reading of these resolutions nnd think I can Und reason for the present price ol moat other than the protective tariff. I (hid that llieie were reeelved at the stock yards 111 Chlosgn In the one month of .lulv 1002. sixtv-llve thousand le-s beeves and one hundred and seventy thonsand less hoes than In the sam" month ono year ago.

GEN. M'CPLLOUGH'S SPEECH. Gen J G. McCullougli was then Intro duced as the next governor of Vermont, and was very cordially received, e.enera MeCiillnugh said that bo expected that "Spuukv Lamoille" will make her usual re. spouse at the election on September 2. lie said that the canvass this year wns ' 011 ilueted on entirely different principles from that of any dining the past do years. It has been usual after the preliminary canvass was over nt tho convention in off yeais to make no other canvass but this was entirely changed this year. The iharges hurled at him by the head of the bolter's ticket and his followers were false. He do. nled ever having offered or eauseil a dol lar to be offered to corrupt the voter and would let the matter drop there. The duty of the Republican party was to roll up a good vote this fall for the effect it would have throughout the country In electing a republican Congiess. Ho then told of the significance nf polling tills large vote and dwelt upon the national Issues somewhat. He appealed to the young men to start their first vote with tho right party, Ihe Republican party, and urged all republi cans tn stick to their party, He said that the bolter would bo hurled in Septe r.vior, but asked that ho ho buried right, not face upwards but face downwards, so that the longer he digs the sooner he will come to his natural homo. General McCullough's speech was liberally applauded and at the close wns heartily cheoied, A TRII1UTB TO WKRI), Judge Powers then said that W. Seward Webb, a former candidate for governor, but who withdrew when he saw that there would not be harmony in the party by further continuance, had come all the way from Har Ilurhni' to answer the roll call but not to make a sim-ccIi. Ho was supporting General McCullougli and asked that the marked contrast be noted between Dr. Webb's attitude and thnt of Clement and that tho republleans would rcnicmb-r Dr. Webb In due time. They wnulil nlso remember Clement In Septem ber, a Fentltnont that brought forth from the largo-audience enthusiastic applause. Among thnse seated upon the platform were ex-Gov C. S. Page ex-Lieut. -Gov. Nelson W. Pike df Isle Li Motto, Freder ick G, l'leetwi-od. cnnelldato for secietary of State, and members of tho press A notlc nble ei'etit occurred when Dr Webb was escorted to the platform by Mr. Fleetwood during the speech making. Dr. Webb was cheered Innrtlly. an' hull, atlon that f very one were pleased with his altitude toward the State ticket. After the close of the addresses Oenernl McCullough hejd a reception and everyone seemed to bo bent upon offering wnrds of encouragement npd pledging their support In September.
