One of the problems In this and some other parts of the country at the present time is pertaining to domestic servants. With tho Increase In number of textile es tablishments and tly opening of new ave nues to employment for women, tho house wife finds moro difficulty than over before In securing capable domestic servants Even higher wages nnd more freedom than formerly was the custom have failed to help matters. The demand Is at all times much greater than the supply and matters hnve been growing from bad to worso so rapidly that the problom has beebmo of mure direct Interest to housewives than Is that of Cuban reciprocity or the ultimate disposition of the Philippine islands. Tho men, too, aro directly interested In this matter, although tho burden of engaging nnd training the cooks, second girls and other classes of domestic servants, natu rally falls on the women. In this dilemma, one Burlington family has turned to tho Flowery Kingdom for help, although lmmedlato relict was found in New iork city. A Chlnem cook Is novelty In Burlington, but tho experiment has thus far proven so successful that cer. tain other families In this city Intend to follow tho example. Tho Chinaman In question was obtained In Now 'iork and does all the work rcquhed to be done In the family find at a prlco no greater than the combined wages of a female cook, sec ond girl and washerwoman would amount ' to. 'Hie family In question was led to make the experiment because of tho success that attends the hiring of Chinamen for house work in California. In that Stato by far llie gieaier part oi an mo Housework Is done by Chinamen and as a rule one Chi naman will do the work of two women of any other nationality. They aro excellent cooks, neat and economical, will do the washing nnd Ironing if that Is stipulated In tho bargain, expect to do all sweeplng an 1 cleaning nnd make Ideal table waiters, Of course In a very largo family It would bo physically Impossible for ono man to do all tho work required to bo done, hut In n family of moderate size ono servant Is all that Is required. In tomo Instances thoy object to the presenco In the kitchen of the inlbticFH of the house but if the work was being done In an entirely satis factory manner most women would lm willing to humor their servants In this whim. As a rule thoy aro faithful and honest, thesu qualities bolng fully rocog nlzed even In the hostile country of Japan, whero most of the bank clerks aro China men, who aro considered moro reliable tlinn the Japanese ihemsejvos. In Snn Fr.incltco and neighboring cities tho Chi nese Hi'mnts are controlled to a certnln extent by one man, who nets as an agent between employer and etnployo nnd to whom all persons wishing such a servant must go. Tho average wages nro about $;'0 per month, but It must bo rcmombcred Unit all prices me on a higher scale, so to Hpeak, In California than In most Eastern Slates. But even at that price, the cost of keeping a Chinese servant would not bo moro tlinn would bo necessary to get tho same amount of work dono by two or jicr hups three women. Enforcement of tho Chinese exclusion act Is likely to koep out of thin country most of tho Chinamen who might bo will Ins to come hero and perform domestic ser vice. But there are In San Francisco and In many other largo cities of the country enough representatives of tho Flowery Kingdom to supply many families with servants and It Ih not Impossible that tho example set by tho Burlington family above referred to may be followed to such an extent In this city that n solution will bo found feir tho servant girl problem.

Try them yourself Only 25c at O'Sulllvut A Young' A CALL TO REPUBLICANS For Loyal Support of Thoir Ticket at the Septomber Election. A Strong and Cnmllil Statement From the Kcpubllcnn State Committee, Worthy of tho Careful Conshlcra. tlou of Every Member of tho Party To the Republican Voters of Ver mont: Since 1853 the Kepubllcan party of iVcrmont lins inarched from Its Conven tion linll to the polls with unbroken ranks and loyul hearts to win constant victories for Its chosen stnmlnnl bear ers and Its exulted principles. Its de votion and fenlty to prlueiplcs and candidates have given It national honor, distinction and Importance and have secured for Vermont the proud cognomen of the "Star that never frets." While the lont? lino of illustrious men who have represented It In Congress, who have been its chief executives, to gether with the marked civic virtue of Its legislators nnd otnclals, with entire absence of public scandals nnd freedom from all taint of corruption, have re flected peculiar credit, luster and honor upon our beloved State until the name of Vermont has become a national syno nym for political honesty nnd integrity. It has had afore time sharp preeon ventlon contests for honors to be con ferred nnd has differed in council con cerning the principles to be enun ciated but when the majority has spoken through Its representatives assembled, the minority has honorably accepted and abided by the result. It has been reserved to this tear to witness a departure from this tlmo honered, wise and patriotic course. At the Republican Stato Convention held at Montpeller.Iune IDtb there were three men supported for Its first honor, each by a constituency of respectable proportions. Thoy submitted their grounds of preferment to the determina tion of the Convention; one only could win; two must suffer defeat, and when defeated there was for thembut one honorable alternative which was to ac cept defeat like men nnd give their hearty support lo the Convention's choice. That the Convention finally selected the man who on the first ballot led by a large plurality gave no ground of of fence to the unuccessful candidates and their friends. Indeed, one of the'e, with his supporters by their magnani mous action, made possible the risult. Then It was that the Clement bolt began. It was without other causa than bis defeat. Knowing everything that he now knows about the delegates present and the method attending their eloetlon, ho accepted the membership of the Con vention, he accepted Its platform, he consented to" be its candidate If selected. The platform contained theworfls In Its opening paragraph "Itesolved hy the Republicans of Vermont in Convention assembled that we renew again our fealty to the Republican party and ex proms our unabated confidence in its principles-." Through his dalegates Mr. Clement had participated In tho Convention ond if he had boon its nominee he would have givon it Mb royal, adherence nnd would hare confidently relied upon the loyaj support of-his party. Sineo tho Convention nothing has arisen, no fact has been discovered which can justify any Republican in attempting to defeat Its chosen candi dates or to change the results of Its de liberations. In Mr. Clement Is found a nion who is willing to be a candidate before n Convention and a bolter from Its ac tion. Who now finds fault with the in tegrity of n Convention which was without fault if it nominated him but was essentially corrupt If his opponpnt was chosen. Who Ignores the honorable tdillgation resting upon a defpated candi date nnd who is now willing to wreck the party he aspired to lead; to openly attack, denounce nnd defame the party whose standard bearer he sought to be and one who In order to promote his political ends nnd fortune, secedes from tho party to which tin pledged his loyal faith at tho late Convention, Entering upon his pro-convention campaign disclaiming all personal am bition, with the avowed purpose of ob taining a single result, the reforend'im of the liquor question, and tho party having consented that there might bo such reference, he immediately upon being notified of his defeat encouraged and incited Republican defection and In a few daj's after the Convention appeared before the Republican Con vention of his own County to urge the passage of adlconso law without refer ence to the people, and being defeated there ho has in furthorenco of his pur pose, promoted and secured a boltfroin Its action, Similar action bus been in spired nnd directed by him In other counties of thp state. Claiming still to bo a Republican on all national ques tions and to be worthy of support by Republicans as such, he consented and nsplred to be the nominee of the lato Btate Democratic Convention and In Its Convention was regularly presented for nomination and wan therefore pre pared nnd willing to stand and run up on a platform which repudiated and denounced every Republican principle nnd maintained every principle nnd po sition favored by state and national democracy and which contained a plank demanding the Immediate passage of a license local option law without refer ence to the people. It has beeoirw evi dent that Mr. Cloment now proposes and desires the election of a legislature which wrll of Itself nnd without refer ence, make license tho law of tho state. Uo professes devotion and loyally to his natlvo state but to advance his own eelflsh Interests he causelessly defa, ues and degrades her. He assumosi the rolo of exemplar nnd teacher of political honesty and morality but enters upon hlh new role by teaching that men may participate In caucus and convention and without political dishonesty rt ay bolt tha convention whon Its action Is not In accord with their own desires. As an exemplar In political morals he loads In the most causeless and wicked bolt known to political history. He attacks the financial management of the state ml ifit bltLVOUTjnUpujc-i cepts as Its Catidl'dates the nominees of the Republican party who arc the re sponsible financial managers of the state. He discourses upon the increased state expense, expensive commis sions nnd unnecessary ofTlccs but names no chnnge except to establish another salaried stato board to be Its purchasing agent with n large array of clerks tibd assistants, for all tho different Institu tions of the state, No one denies that tho state expenses have largely increased durlngtheyenrs of Republican ascendency but It Is be cause of tho settled policy of the stale regardless of party requiring such ex penditures nnd shifting large burdens of expense from the towns to the state nnd not through corruption, Ineffici ency, prodigality or mismanagement. Which part of this settled policy would Mr. Clement repudiate? We have now a hospital for the insane owned nnd equipped by the state, equipped with modern conveniences and conducted In accordance with ad vanced and approved methods for the safety and recovery of these unfortu nate members of our society, answering the proper demands of a sympathetic and philanthropic people. We have a House of Correction for the less Incorrigible law breaker where reformation muy bo secured; we have the Industrial school for the young where virtuous mnnhood and woman hood may be wrought out of what would otherwise become fixtures among the criminal classes. Our Colleges are aided from our state treasury in order that poverty shall not pr"vent Ihenm bltlous youth from obtaining broad and thorough culture. Wo provide Instruc tion for the blind, (he mute and the weak-minded. We raise a r percent state tax to distribute among our towns which arc richer In road mileage than in grand list. We equalize In a degree the burden of school taxation by an eight percent State tax. We make lib eral provision for our State Normal Schools. We care for the insane poor at the state expense and tint" relieve each toyn of this burden and secure better treatment :vnd care. Wu expend a considerable amount upon our state rallltia and our Soldiers' Home. All this and much more Is -lone be cause the state has approved of It and yet this large expenditure irtis been so provided for by our system of corpora tion; taxes that the state tax assessed upon the Grand list is less than It was twenty years ngo. Undoubtedly this method of corporation taxation can lie improved upon and extended and the stato tax be still further lessened and even entirely dispensed with. A commission reporting when Mr. Clement wes In tho Pennte Hint thocor porations were bearing only about one fourth of their fnir share of tho burden of taxation an effort wasmade to in crease corporate tnxation, but Mr. Clem ent was strenuous in opposition and it was defeated. He wa s then President of tho Rutland Railroad system. Ho now asserts that no stato tax was needed nnd that he voted against increased cor poration taxation because no additional revenue was required, but as the chair man of the Senate Finance Committee of 1000, he in fact recommended the very day, he brought about the defeat of the corporation tax bill, the very tax which you are now paying. He descries the method of liquor law enforcement In IiIk city and draws many illustrations therefrom. He has for ninny years been an Influential citizen of Rutland and lias been its Mayor and yet these abuses continued without cor rection when he had official power, and without rebuke from him ns a man. Mr. Clement alleges that he doubts the sincerity of the Republican party In Vermont In ItH plank concerning the sub mission of the license local option law to the vot of the peoplo and seeks thus to Justify bis secession. Rut when was the Ropubllean party of Vermont or of the nation untrue to its pledges? From ltn Inception to the present hour has tlie party gf liberty under Freemont, of the Constitution ami Union under Lincoln nnd Grant, of sound money and protec tion to American industries under Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Harrison and McKlnley, crowned by its honorable and philanthropic position towards Cuba and the Philippines when nnd wherein has it In either state or nation betrayed its trust or wandered from the paths of honor, Justice nnd recti tude? In the light of Its history then, ho who would impugn the honor and good faith of the Republican party im peaches his own, The Convention favored the submis sion to the people of the question of license nnd local option or state pro hibition because It was deemed a wise and proper concussion to a growing f.nd Insistent demand for such u reference which came alike from the friends nnd tho foes of tho prohibitory law. Thoso who opposed prohibition as serted that a local-option law would best control and would best restrict the sale of Intoxicating liquor, and that a refer ence to the people would show a ma jority favorable to such a law. Friends of Stato prohibition claimed that such a reference would show that the peo ple were not in favor of n license local option law, and that the wld nnd thor ough discussion and agitation which would precede the vote would result in the rejection of such a law and In the better enforcement of tho prohibitory law and its estnbllslirastit as tho set tled and unquestioned policy of tlio ttnto, Both of these nRked that tho proposed substitute bo submitted In order that the peoplo might vote intelligently hav ing both the prohibitory law And tho law proposed before them, Hellevingin the right of the majority to determine the action of tho state and in the right of the majority to hnve opportunity of expression the Republican prrty placed this plank In its platform In good faith, with an honest purpose and with n view to the highest good of the state. The unrestricted sale of Intoxicant is regarded by Republicans as a public evil and by thin action of the conven tion It Is now left first with tho leglsln turo nnd next with the people to do termlno whether this restriction and restraint shnll bo found In tho present law, some wise modifications of the present statutes or n license local-option law. Mr. Clement attempts to excuso Ms secession from the Republican party and to Justify his action In bolting tho con vention when ho was n candldnto for high preferment by making a claim of bribery on the part of both of his oppo nents nnd to such an exli-nt 'is to vltl- He also claims that this charge of bribery Is not new; Hint It had been made and substantiated by numerous affidavits prior to the assembling of the Convention. The real value he places upon these charges nnd the nflldnvlts to support tt, Is cnslly determined, Tho stale committee was the commit tee on credentials. To them these affi davits should have been taken and any Illegal delegates challenged nnd un seated as surely they would l.ave been on valid proof. Rut to the committee he made no chnlienge nnd produced no proofs, neither was there a word .ald by his friends in the convention Im pugning Its integrity of composition nnd It was only after his own candlducy before the body wns hopeless that tho familiar cry of "Stop Thief" was raised by him and some of his supporters. There were only two contests before this committee on credentials. One arose from the claim of Mr. Cloment that the delega tes from the town of Rut land, who were present with cre dentials, should be unseated nd dele gates favorable to him substituted In their stead. Mr. Clement's claim waa allowed, anil his delegates sealed, but In this case no charge of fraud was made. In the other contested case Mr. Flan ders or Orange was seated In lieu of tho Clement delegate by the unanimous ac tion of the Committee on unchallenged and uncontradicted proof that the elec tion of the Clement delegate was se cured through the votes of tho Demo crats who. admitting their politics and demanding the right to rote, wero per mitted to do so under protest. In no other Instance was tho right of a single delegate to his seat challenged before tlio committee or In the conven tion, nor was tho charge that dele gates were improperly elected or Im properly influenced after election mnde at any time before the committee or In the convention. His contention of brlbsry surely does not Justify tho bolt from Hon. Zed S. Stanton, our Candidate for Lieutenant Governor who had mnde no pro-convention canvass and had no organized support, but whoso nomination was tho genuine spontaneous tribute f a ma jority of the Convention to his vortb. To those who know General Me Cullough this suggestion of corruption nccdn no denial. To those who flo not we are pleaded to nssuro them that from the beginning to the end of his canvass he did and countenanced noth ing corrupt, dishonorable or unseemly. Dishonesty is n frequent charge made by defeated candidates In political con tests and Mr. Clemeut Is simply no ex ception. Throughout the state Republicans will not fail to recall In whoso behalf Democrats were brought to the Caucus to elect delegates to the last Republi can convention. Mr. Clemynt has no standing In the forum of th" people when he pocs as tho uncontamlnnted representative of honesi political action. To aid In his election Mr. Clement has without their solicitation endorsed nnd placed upon his ticket the regular Republican candidates for Secretary of State, Stato Treasurer, nnd Auditor of Accounts. They authorize the State Committee to say that they are Repub licans and not In sympathy with nny movement that would tend to disrupt the Republican party; that thoy stand upon the platform as adopted by the Itepubll can Convention of June 19th, at Montpeller. and for the ticket there nominated and for no other principles or party; that Number 2 of Hie Arts of IPOS, forbid the printing upon a "ballot" of the name of any candldnte.who has declined a nomination. For this rea son they hnve not declined the License Local-Option nomination. Wo confidently appeal to the men of Vermont who see in tho Ropubllean party and its achievements the unex ampled glory and prosperity of our state and country, who are proud of their little state which bnu borne no mean and trivial part in the progressof our nation; who believe, as rightfully they may, and should, and believing exalt that dnringnll thlstlme thoy have lived in the cleanest state In tho Union wheyo corruption In the Legislature, In the Judiciary and In tho executive of fices has been unknown and who would retain untarnished tho fair fame of tho state. Wo appeal to all such to Indignantly repudiate and condemn the man who In tho blindness and wickedness of his own self-seeking does not hesltato to publish and proclaim to tho world, foul slanders upon tho Integrity nnd honor of Old Vermont. We confidently appeal to nil who lovo the party for Its state and national Is sues of far reaching importance, who have gloried In Its nchlerements, who nro devoted to Its principles, who bo Ilevo them paramount to any sln?Ic tato Issue, who bellcvu that all thos lire best gained and best maintained within and not without tho party, who love Its leaders, who look forwnrd to n national triumph in 1904, that wo may continue our present prosperity and national grandure, all such wo appeal by their volco nnd by their ballots to keep secure our Stato In tho front rank of tho Republican party In 1002. No greater disaster could come upon the Republican party of the Nation than the removal of Vermont this year from tho Republican column.
