The Now Justice or the U. S. Supremo Court. Judge Oliver Wendell Holmes, who hns been appointed tn tho vacancy on tho su premo bench, occasioned by tho resignation of Justice C.rny, Is the son ot Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, the author and poet. He was born in lioston in March, 1SI1, and graduated from Hnnnrd In the class-of 1S-61. He was a first lieutenant In the Twentieth Massachusetts nnd was wound ed in the battle of Hall's Uluft nnd Antlo tam. He was promotid to be captain, and was wounded for the third tlmo at Freder icksburg. He did not recover from this wound until some time after ho was mus tered out ns a lieutenant-colonel In July, lSiit. After the war he studied law at tho Harvard Law schon. In isi" ho was ad mitted to the bar, and In 170 ho became tho editor of the American Iaw Iteview. In 1S73 he published an edition of Kent's Commentaries, which gave him standing ns a legal authority. In 1SSJ ho beenmo professor of law nt Harvard, and was soon afterwards appointed a Judge of tho su premo court of Massachusetts, Ho has been nearly twenty years on tho supreme bench of Massachusetts, tho Inst part of tho time ns Its chief justice; und his ap pointment is tho second tlmo within n quarter of a century that a President has called the head of that court to Washing ton, Justice Gray having held that posi tion when ho was selected by President Arthur in 1SI. gent thinkers that this was In reality the best way tn reach a satisfactory solution of the problem, from whatever standpoint the matter may bo considered, Gen, McCullough takes a pronounced and wholly unequivocal position on tho refer endum plank of tho Vermont republican platform. Ho says: "I stnnd on tho referendum ptnnk as on overv other measure irrotiosed by tho Re publican party. It Is tho duty now ot tho Republican party to elect republicans to the Lrulslnturo and the duty of the Gener al Assembly to frame tho wisest local op tion bill that the Vermont legislature can device nnd then submit It to the people for adoption or rejection. Gen, McCullough adds that If elected to the position of governor, ho will do what ho can to bring about the adoption of the icfercndt'.m. Die republican nominee for tho gover norship not only plnces himself squarely on tho platform adopted by the republican State convention, but ho niso takes the onlv position thnt Is safe tinder tho cir cumstances. If the boltcr-ln-chlcf Is In clined to abandon his advocacy of a refer endum It shows that ho Is beginning to bo afraid to trust his cause with tho people. He tried onco to force through tnc Legisla ture a so-called high llcenso measure, which would not command tho support of the majority of tho license men nnd which Is now rejected by license organs. It the bolter now asks for a mandate from the people, to repeal the prohibitory lav and enact n license law In Its stead without referring It to the people, he should be compelled to give tho people be fore the election In September some idea dm nrnvialons of tho measuro ho would substitute for tho existing statute, other wise the public will be wholly In the dark as to his Intentions in this respect. Gen. McCullough Is In favor ot rcfcrrlii to the peoplo "the wisest local option mil that the Vermont Legislature can devls-e." and allowing tho people to chooso freely between that measure and a prohibit in law. Can any one reasonably ask more than this? What Is the latest choice nf the bolter ln-chlff as to the manner of disposing of tho liquor problem? Word comes from Nebraska that tho re. publicans of that State hopo to send a Eolid delegation to the next national House of Representatives. Tho present Nebraska congressional delegation stands two re publicans to four fuslonlsts, but tho latter were elected by small pluralities. If tho Vermont bolter succeeds in making his combinations with tho democrats work, Vermont may toon bo represented in Con gress by fusionists. The latest addition to the Vermont bolt ers' heterogenous political aggregation is the superannuated leading man of a onc hortc presentation of the passion play who does- a monologue with screen work. He says he can make more money talking for the bolter than even by preaching. A can didate who can survive a combination of color, d vaudeville, Snm Smnll talk and pa -lon pla methods will be able to give any IJarnum points on how to humbug tho Vcrmcnt people.

In time , will be fully evident that Sam Small employer has been using tho license b..nd wagon which ho claimed to place before everything else ns an ambu lance for his own crippled political fortunes. One of tho largest automobiles in tbu wnrld Is owned In California. Tho big ma chine has n traction engine capable of handling seventy-five tons, taking the place of sixty horses, it also includes n mowing machine which cuts a swntli of thirty-six feet, nnd a threshing ma hiim all complcto. It has an average speed of threo and one-half miles an hour nnd will clean up tho grain from 100 acres of land in a day. This is almost equal to the float ing Fawmlll with which sumo of tho farm ers along Iake Cliamplain havo done their haying during this year of continued rains. It Is announced that In pursuance of tho provision of the new army appropriation let setting aside VO,rV for use In etabllsh Ing amusement halls at the various army posts, a board of army olllcer3 will short ly be appointed to visit the posts and re port as to how the money should be c x ponded, ft Is hclloved that In many cases buildings already in existe nce can be trms formed Into attractive amusement halls .while nt many other posts new buildings will havo to bo erected. These halls aro to provide rending rooms, gymnasiums, billiard (rooms, bowling alleys, baths and other features designed for the conven tence and comfort of the; soldier. Moro Clement nookkeppinjr. in connection with his discussion of books nnd campaign expens'a V. W. Clement ays In his open letter that "I will ilo show how much was spent In my campaign when I was ebeted representa tive of Rutland. Tho amount was less than one thousand dollars." It could not hae been much less thnn Jl.C'O according to Clement's adept bookkeeping else ho would have named a smaller sum. We havo boon In communication with a man In a position tn know and ono whom wo would believe fully ns soon ns P. W. Clement. This man says that during the nmpalsrn for P. W. Clement for reprc- ontativo there was spent for his election cry nearly four thousand dollars. It all of Mr, Clement's election accounts are as comprehensive as tho one which hull cafes an expenditure of lest than $,( when somebody spent nonrlv Jt fun for lilm he exhibit nf his personal aerounts would not shed much light on the situation. It will strike the average man, however, that 'less thnn J 1 ,000' ' Is a considerable sum to pay to secure the election of one man to tho Legislature, and this is Mr. Clement's own modest admission. If Mr. Cle ment could find a way to spend 'less tnan one thousand dollars," in epresi-ntatlve contest In n single place for election as representative, to accept his statement of tho ease, will tho reader try o form an estimate of the sum he would be likely to spend or allow to be spent for him In Iln towns when he is a enndadato for gevernor and Is trying to secure tho election of representatives from each ono of most of these towns favorable to his In- tr-rcsts? t'nder the cliciunstances ami in tho light of his admission regarding the expense nf hi representative campaign, does any sane man believe money Is not being spirit In behalf of Mr. Clement in various parts of the State In the present campaign? A prominent lieutenant of 1. W. Clement makes the bold statement that if necessary in attempt will be made to buy the Legis lature. If any attempt of this kind Is mado in the Interest of the bolting candidate by some Indlvl ltml or organization, It follows ns u matter of course that a strict cash account will be kept fur inspection by any commission that may bo appointed; that money wilt ha paid out only by cheeks. thus showing conclusively where tho money goes, nnd that somebody's else cash accour t and check book will be offered for exhibit to prove; that no such money was spent. Gnat nre the bookkeeping resource s of reform! Control orthe IiCBlslnturc. One of the appeals made In behalf ot the bolting candidate for the governorship has been that support of him might make it possible to prevent the election of a gov ernor by popular vote and thus throw tho election Into the Legislature, whero he might secure a victory- The canvns3 Una progressed to a degree that makes tf pos sible for those having it in charge to speak with some degree ot nssuranco concerning the political complexion of tho next Gen eral Assembly, and even If there were .im possibility of throwing tile election into tho Legislature General John G. McCul lough's election would bo assured. All persons of a political turn nf mind must have noticed that practically all of tho republican candidates for tho Legisla ture In Franklin county aro supporters of tho p might variety, and tho bolting can didate for governor could hardly look for much consolation in that direction. Col. 7.. M. Mansur announces that tho canvas-s in the northeast section of tho Stato shows that there Is not likely to be a single Clem cut representative chosen In Caledonia Ks.icx and Orleans counties; although there may be several for McGcttiick. There are a few Clement representatives In evidence in some of the other counties, but their number will be so small compnr.i lively as to In no way endanger control of the Legislature by tho republicans. In this juncture republicans shiuld be careful In the case of n contest between numerous candidates for the House to ee thnt tlie men selected arc such as will deal honestly and squarely with the pledge contained in the State republican plat form. There should be no Jugglery with this question, but the hest possible measure should lie lormulated and submitted so that tho vote of tho people when it is re ferred to them for approval or rejection will bo conclusive), nnd the whole problem ho disposed of decisively oni way or the other. Jt Is for tho Interest of all people to have the liquor question settled, and the only way to secure this result will he to select men as representatives who can bo relied upon to deal honestly with their constituents ns well as with tho issue now absorbing public attention. convention Mr. Clement found It expedient to charge the seven hundred or so republl. cans who adopted tho referendum plank with being Insincere, Ho wanted to run nn a bolting candidate and ho must havo some plausible excuse. So ho charged insinceri ty. Hut he forgot thnt ho had consented to head n bolt on tho very nttcrnon ot that convention beforo any county convention had had tlmo to consider tho referendum. Who wns tho orlglnnl bolter nnd who tho arch representative of Insincerity In that case? Mr. Clement's next mnvo was to make charges ngalnst tho republican Stato gov ernment since l3. Ho brought his ar raignment up to tho very present, nnd then gave the lie to his own charges by endorsing tho nomination of tho men nn tho State republican ticket, who havo to do with tho finances, the auditor, and trea surer. He bolted merely the nominations for governor nnd lieutenant-governor who have practically nothing tn do with finance or legislation, since tho legislature can pass any measure over tho governor's veto by n bare majority nt any time. More over no reason has yet been given why tho lieutenant-governorship nomination was bolted. H has also been shown that Clement Ig nores the fact that the cost ot caring for tho lnsano wus homo by the towns up tn ISSS whereas at the present tlmo the burden has been transferred to tho State and so with various other Stato Items in the bud get. A complete dlsproval of Clement's fi nancial showing appears elsowherejbnt lit tle things like facts and figures of this kind constitute no obstacle for Mr. Clement. Ho 13 proof ngalnst any fact or figure that does not help to promote his candidacy. Mr. Clement's organ asserts that ho Is not fighting the Republican party yet the bolter Is doing everything poslhlo to dis credit the hundreds of republicans who were dsicgntes to the State convention and voted for the referendum; he Is promoting tho candidacy of democrnts In various counties against republicans. Mr. ficmenl is not fighting democrats. Whom Is ho fighting, If not republicans? It becomes evident that Clement's candi dacy has been based upon Insincerity nnd misrepresentation and tho use of dirty pol ltlcs from tho very outset, and he will find thnt the people of Vermont aro not to be led by a combination of minstrel buftoonry, unscrupulous Jugglery of figures and bare faced falsehood.

John U, McCullough in relation to tho referen dum plank we reprint, by request, the plank which tho Vermont republicans adopted In their State convention at Mont pellcr. it is ns follows: Itesolved, Thnt tho ttepubllcan party of Vermont ndh'Tos to Its long rheilMicil In lief that unrestricted traffic In intoxicating liquors Ik a public evil, nnd that material modifications of exlsjlng law on that sub ject should be made only after thorough discussion nnd tnatun deliberation by the tropin, nnd we request the State legisla ture nt Its next session to ninko provision for ascertaining the will of tho people by llrei I vote upon the acceptance or lelec tlou of a high license and local option law regulating the sale nf Intoxicating liquors, and further providing upon popular vote In favi r of such a law, duly ascertained, that the same shall bo nnd become a stat ute law of tin Stnto In force. The bolter-ln-chlef who accepted this declaration In favor of n referendum, with out a word of protest when tho snmn was submitted to him at Montpellcr, afterward sought to make it appear thnt that great body of Vermont's representative republl cans wero not sincere when they adopted this referendum plank. The employer of Sam Smnll Is the one who has bolted this plank, and chnrged republicans with Insln cerlty. Yet his organ has tho nudacity to assert that he Is not fighting tho rtepubll can party. Both the local option organization and the nntl-salnon league having como out In favor of u referendum, there wan In reality no good I'i' iKon why tlie Vermont republi can hould lir-ltatr to make a declaration In favor ut irfcrilng this whole que tlon to- tho people, uxd it Is now realized by Uitclll Clement "Hoist ly His Own Petard. ' Those who are Intimately acquainted with tho paramount points in tho record of I'ercival W. Clement know that he Is one of tho last men In tho world to pose as a reformer; as a friend of tho taxpayer; as a champion of tho interests of the la boring man; as an enforcer of law and ns an exponent of tho highest moral stand nrds in pollttcs and in government. llo began his campaign in a spirit of comedy and many peoplo went tn hear his cuon quartette, now no longer heanl n)os to laugh at his stories and to enjoy what was rightly regarded as an entertainment somewhat out of the ordinary run. As soon as Clement himself began to tnko his candidacy seriously, the method of cam paign was entirely changed. Then began a scusnn of dirty polities, Ills organ pub IMied an affidavit charging that tho Franklin county member of tho Stnto re publican committee! had taken whiskey to a certain man to be used In support of Mr, I'roclor's candidacy. Mr. Deal demanded a retraction of tho charge, which after much haggling was made. The Hutland Herald was nlsn fnreed to publish an affi davit from the man whoso name was at Inched to the original affidavit showing that Mr. Deal had not been nenr his place that tho man who secured the affidavit prepared a statement and read tho same to him nnd paid him for signing It. He nlso said that Fomo of tho statements con tainea merein as punusneu no am not io- member hearing read. It now nppears from numerous affidavits that tho course pursued In connection with tho affidavit ngalnst Mr. Denl was followed in various counties. 1'crsnns professing to bo working In the Interest of Mr, Clement offered money not only for affidavits ngalnst either Mr. l'roctor or Oenenil Mc Cullough, but also for votes, Mr. Clement may not havo been directly responsible, but he did not think of giving any ono the benetit of this douht when ho charged both Goneral McCullough and Mr. Proctor with profiting by corruption. Not only this but thcro nrn Clement men who aro to-day boasting of tho amount of money they will have to pjiond In Hurling, ton and In other towns on election day and there are men who are peddling whls key In certain towns for tho sake of mak Ing votes for I'ercival W. Clement. Mr. Clement may not havo hired these mon or supplied them with money, though some body has; but by the standard of Judgmcn he himself hai et ho must rise or fall by their actK. Some time after tliu HUto. rcpubllcai and surrounding towns. On the evening of August SC a republican county rally will bo held at the Howard Opera House, and ono of the most Interesting meetings of the kind ever held In the city ought to result.

Theso meetings will be arranged with spcdal reference to the discussion of the merits of he count i, ticket nnd the county -Una Inn, although the general Ksues Involved In the campaign will not be slighted There s no reason why the Hon.

Good speakers thoroughly qualified to discuss local usiks ns well as questions Involved In th State campaign will bo secured and provision mado for successful nnd effective r.illiis, clearing up the cloud hanging over his campaign' Will Mr. Clement have the poopie under stand that any books he can produce would show tho name of the men in Fair Haven who received Vi for every ten votes for Clement delegates they gathered In, as checked off on the check list, and exhibit the total Film thus expended? If his books or those of some organization do not show this, what would the showing of tho books he has at command amount to? Can Mr. Clement produce any books that will show the nmount of money spent for the purpose of colonizing men of New Hampshire in republican caucuses at Brattle boro and other towns In the Connec ticut Valley for tho purpose of helping to elect Clement delegates to the State re publican convention? If cheek and cash honks nt tlie command of himself or of some organization will not show this, what would tho exhibition of his books nmount to? Does Mr. Clement desiro to have the peoplo understand ho has books that will show what it cost to have democrats go about the State for the purpose of promot ing the Invasion of republican caucuses by democrats for tho purpose of sccurln delegates to tho Stato republican conven tion? If he has no record of this kind of what avail would bo tho showing of a hundred cash books or check books thnt do not contain tho means of tracing these transactions: for every one knows theso A rousing lepubllcan rally will be held at ,lcmo(,ratg Went about the State and that earned reputation among investors K-r handling nothing hut high-grade propoi tions.

The FlUOH I'HKSS lias receive! from P. W. Clement a proposition to show tho boohs of tliu I,oc.l Option League and his books of account to 11 commission ot three men, provided Cicnenil McCullough will submit his books to tho same ommlsslon, the commission to determine whether or not money lias been spent by either candi date In a wrong or corrupt manner. This Is an excellent illustration of tho pluuslblo way In which Mr. Clement Is conducting his campaign. A little thought will show that Mr. Clement Is perfectly safo In making this offer, and that Gen eral McCullough would be perfectly safe In accepting ths proposition. The submission of Mr. Clemont'u books to a committee as proposed by him would prove nbolutely nothing as regards the corrupt use of money. Wo do not sup pose for a minute that Mr, Clomonl Is fool onough to furnish evldenco of his own Im proper use of money for catupalKii pur poses by signing checkH for u corriiptloi fund.

Will Mr. Clement have the public under stand he is in a position to furnish books that will show tho oxpenso of different In dividual trips of a notorious man for tho purposo of interesting tho liquor associa tions in tho campaign In Vermont. If no record has been mado ot such expenditure by somebody, of what avail would bo the showing nf the books of Mr. Clement or those of the organization of which ho is tho head? lias Mr. Clement a record Fhowlng tho Burlington democrats who wero telephoned to In connection with Ills bolt, and whoso co-opcratlon was assuied beforo the movo was ilnally decided upon?

If not, how would tho showing of bis cash nccount clear up tho charges of Insincerity and political Jugglery mado ngalnst him by both republicans anil demo crats? Is Mr, Clement In a position to furnish books that will show who provided money for tho liquor dispensed in his Interest In Bristol, 111 Hi.

If ho la not in a position to furnish this Information of what valuo or Importance would bo tho showing of his cash account and his check book? Has Mr. Clement or any organization he controls any cash account or check book that will show who paid for tho whiskey that Is being distributed at the present tlmo In behalf of tils candidacy In the town of Huntington, for example, and how much lias already been spent In this manner?
