The r'llly to-night was advertised as go Ing to be the lnrgust eer held In Vermont ut In this respect it was a disappoint ment In the p'liade there were 319 people, two thirds of whom wore boys, and three bands. Later several thousand people Including iriany women and children gatheied nt the tr tp g paik. Throughout tho evening t) i manifested little enthusiasm for so large a crowd. Tnc speaKeis were a half hour late In nr. riving and in tile interim tiie ciowd was En mod with Clement's stei eopticon. Mr Clement did not amuse the spirits of his heaters as he did on his former islt to this city and in his remarks threshed over tho same ground he did In his pre vious speech. Small lott to-night with Clement nnd had every appearance here of being In his tustomary robust health. Sp cial ttalns were run to-night from Vils River, WnUrbury and Bethel nnd la ought DCO peoplo here, taking them home after the rally. The evening concluded with a display ot fireworks which were all right and made a hit. AVOIDED MONTPELIER CROWD His Escapade at Brattleboro the Talk of tho Town. Montpeller, Aug. 2C Tho report of the Ham Small estapadn at Hrattleboro Jinn tla curing has been a topic of conversa tion among all classes of men in Montpeller lo daj, some of whom were partially con verted by Mr. Small's persuasive language when he spoke nt a Clement tally In Mont peller last week. The positive intelligence received this af ternoon that Mr. Small confessed to-day at Hrattleboro that ho was In a hopelessly In. toxlcated condition Munday tunning only ervMl to increase Interest In tho matter, Quito a crowd gathered at tho Central i ermont station this atteinnon when Mr. Hniall was expected on his way from Brat tleboro to Uarre, but ho kept himself se cluded from public observation, Mr Small's actions at Hrattleboro en tirely neutralized any good hu may have done for Mr. Clement s cause In Mont JjcIIlt.

The weekly crop bui lding of the New England section of tho climate nial crop service of the weather bureau says: All things considered the week past may he called generally favorablo to farming operations and crop growth. The rains and high winds of tho latter part of tho week retarded work somewhat, hut caus ed no appreciable damage to crops. Thero was nn averagn amount of sunshine, but the temperatures were too low to favor the best growth. Thionghont the district the temperatures were generally below the normal, with minima low enough for frost In some lo calities had the weather conditions been favorable for Its formation. With the exception of tho southern half of the section an average amount of pre cipitation occurred at most points. Tho rain of the ni'.d was accompanied by severe thunder and lightning, and, In some places, by hall. CONDITION Ol' CHOI'S. The crop situation remains practically unchanged, nearl" everything having made nhnnt normal progress. In many respects the season Is backward and any sort of a harvest of some crops Is depen dent upon a waim September and a. late occurrence of autumn fiosts. In the north ern portion of the section work was de layed by foul weather, but In the south eastern portion more rain Is needed as springs and wells are getting uw, the ground hard and dry, and past tiro feed short. drain. If frosts hold oft and the other i weather nudition are favorable, theie j M 111 prolmlily he a better corn crop In the , southern half of the section than was promised earlier in the season. The yle!d satisfactory Or.is.v. Where not completed the harvest ing of tho hay crop has progressed as rapidly as the weather conditions would permit, Cossidornblo grass remains uncut in the north, lowlands being still so wet that teams cannot get on them. Some rowen has been cut and there Is a good yield reported, except where set back hy drought. When New England, as a whole. Is considered, the hay crop has proven very satlstnctory, the most stIoiis trouble, in regaid to It being the fact that much was Injured while curing by wet weather. The fei d In pastures continues excellent, except In parts of Rhode Island and south eastern Masachusctts. Flint. Peaches and pears are reported as rotting somewhat, hut a fair crop ot the former is assured, with the yield of pears uneven. Tim majority of the New England correspondents still report that the yield of apples will be about the aver age in most localities and above In some. Except at some few points the winter irletles do not promise well, especially Baldwins Reports from the cranberry raising distriits indi. nte that while the yield from some bogs will be light, yet that the total crop will be up to. If not slightly above, the average. Picking was begun during the week on some l ogs where the berries were in proper condition, nnd the results were satisfactory. Tho shrinkage from enrly estimates of a phenomenal crop Is attributed to the frost tho latter part of May, which injured some beds, while on others tho water was allowed to stay too long. Vegetables. It Is now probably a well decided fact that suunshes, cucumbers, and melons will yield far below the aver age. Root crops are doing well, except that there l some complaint that blight has appeared In some onion Held, and that in others there has been an extra rank growth of vines at the expense of the hot. teims. Potatoes are yielding well and an of goeid epiulity. Wlillo reports of blight and lot are fruiuont, it is thought that no serious damage will result to the early varieties; that to the late-planted ones cannot now be established with any di gtco of certainty. Tobacco. The teipplng, cutting, and cur ing of the tobacco crop Is being pushed lapluly. 1 he damage from grasshoppers green worms, nnd just has been compara tively small, and with but very few ex eeptlons glowers report a more than aver age crop, j tie shado grown Is exieptlou ally fine, closely nppr,oachlng tho Suma tra leaf in quality.

The Candidacy of Bolter Clement Roughly Handled at Rich mond Rally. EMINENT LEADERS THERE Dillingham, McCullousrh, Powers and Foster Sound Keynote of True Republicanism- Present Strife Is be tween Republican Party and Clement. Richmond, Aug. 25. The republicans of this town gathered at the high school grounds this afternoon and heal a rousing rally, several speakers of prominence be ing picscnt. The gathering was marked for the enthusiasm, large attendance and the high order of tho speeches. The candidacy of Clement was handled without gloves and the Issues he has made were dis cussed from every point ot view aim iiiuir weaknesses sliown. Aside rrom the peo ple ot Richmond there were delegations trom surioiuullng towns, who had driven miles to hear tho Issues of the campaign discussed There could have been no more deslrablo day for such a gathering and the town republican committee had made every preparation for the event. The speakers arrived from Burlington shortly nftcr noon and were met U the station by the town committee composed of A. .1. Hall, ft. E. Jones, H. A. Rhodes, 1". O, Nichols, F. W. Kay, J. II. Goodwin, Joseph Stone, W. S. Walker and E. T. Jneohs. The Essex Junc tion band was also in waiting and tho party was escorted to the hotel. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon the speak ers were escorted by the Ulnesburgh band to the grounds where the stand, aecoiated with bunting, hail been elected. The two bands played several selections after which the gathering was cajled to order by F. G. Nichols, who announced t.iat Congressman D J. Foster woum preside. The hundreds of people who were pres ent paid close attention to the remaiks of the speakers nnd the telling points weio loudly applauded. The speakers were tho Hon. H. H. Powers of Morrlsvllle, Gen. J. G, McCullnugh of Rennington. republi can candidate for governor, and Fulted States Senator W. P. Dillingham of Wa tcrbury. The latter did not arrive until af ter the rally had begun but his appearance was the signal of applause and he received an ovation. Congressman Foster made, a few brief remarks. He said that the voters had been told that the only Issues of the campaign were local Issues and that they bad no national Importance. This, th speaker said, was not true; that Vermont could not hold an election that would not have national Importance. He said that the other States looked to Vermont for a big republican majority and thnt If It was not rolled up the effect weiuld be noticed the country over. He said that Verniontcrs are proud of the fact that they belong to tnai gieat national party which in yenr ngo found the union dissolving md took that union aid cemented It more lirmh than 1 had ever been before md made the flag loved at home and resne, t. il abroad. He si Id thnt If Vermont did Its part In the election there need be no fear but that the rest of the country would keep up. MR. POWF.RS'S REMARKS. Kx-Congressnian Powers was the first speaker introduced. He "lid that previous to the Slate v publii-an convention both MiCullough and Clement had exerted themselves vigorously and hone.Hy to se cure delegates to the convention tilvorable to themselves, Clement announced that he had no personal Interest In tho matter but that he wanted a resolution embodied In the plHtiorm providing that the liquor epiesiu.n ne sunniltted to the people. The speaker then told how Clement got the resolution and It was accepted by him; of how McCullough was nominated and the nomination made unanimous by Clem ent's friends and then of how Clement's delegates left the hall. The holt, the speak, er said, was in accordance with a precon ceived plan. He said that the Clement de-legates left the convention without the slightest Justification and that he has hnd no Justineation for his bolt, Ho must have some excuse for bolting so he started the old bugaboo ot extravagance In State ar falrs. Tho speaker then went on to show that although State expenses have Increased the direct tax hnd decreased; that. In fact, the direct tax 20 years ago was four times as large as it is now, The reason for this given by the speaker was that that a mens tire taxing corporations nnd a measure relating to Inheritance taxes hnd been passed and so Increased tho Income of the State. If tho bill Increasing the corpora tion taxes Introduced at the last sesrdon of the Legislature which wasklleel In the Sea ate by Clement, who wns chairman of the llinnce committee, had passed there would have been no, or almost no, direct tax to. day. The speaker said that Clement has never specliied n slnglo dollar of State money mat nas been wrongfully used and has not mentioned the name of a slnele olllclal who has misused funds and remark. ed that it needed something more thnn Clement's mere word to prove his state ments. Ho refuted Clement's statements relative to the misuse of money nnd said that the assets of Vermont to-dav are more man equal to tho Increase In tho ex penses. Mr. Powers said thnt the present flcht was not between General McCullough and Mr. Clement but wns between tho renubll- can party and Clement, whom ho charnc. lerlzeil as a bolter and a traltr. In rlnslnc ne sain: "ir you pinpnse to trent General McCullough with tho same menHiiro of fairness that you usually give remihllcan nominees you will go to tho polls Tuesday urn give mm 1110 usual renu can mator. Ity . CKNKRAL M'CHLLOIJGII. General McCullough wns tho next sneak er. He said that Clement's cnmpalgn hnd been ono of villincalion from tho vcrv be ginning: that neither snrced nor profane tilings nan escaped mm; that every da partment of the State government had been nltarkcd. He said that the- ropuhllcan party nan put 1110 icrerendum pinnk in their platform nnd thnt It was their duty at the next session of tho Legislature to form the moit perfect license Inw posblp and then submit It to the people. Ho said thnt tho Republican party had never yet failed to fulllll Its every Pledge, both na tional und Stato. In referring to the finance question Gen eral McCullough said that If elected he would enelenvor to give tho ponnle an economical administration. He said thnt Clement cried for honesty and reform in Stato politics. He said thnt Clement's honesty consisted of mlsstalements and thnt ho would reform out of existence the Insane hospital and other Stute Institu tions. He would rnzo to the ground tho S'jldlers Heime, which wa the gift of the commonwealth; ho would destroy the edu. cntlnnal syrlem and tho library, Tho bolt er's honesly Is rank dishonesty arid his re feirm the degredatlon and demoralization of the best Stale p stltlltlons. HKNATOR DILLINGHAM. Brnali.r IMIIIn-ham v;i VU last micnk. WT tr. He said Clement's cnndldnry was not a republican movement but was tho result of a convention of the Iocal Option League. Tho nnme, of the party that nntn Inated him, as shown by his nomination papers. Is tho license-local option party. That party wants the veto of every man nn mntter whether he Is a republican or a democrat. The speaker said that the Re publican party had been In power for 40 years becnuso It had been of tho people, by tho people and for tho people; because It had been n party of progress, meeting every Issue and formulating legislation that would bo for tho good of all tho peo ple. Tho speaker said that the party had put the referendum plank In the platform nt the request of many voters and that such a move was all that Clement asked, there fore there is no reason why any republican should bolt his party. The sneaker answer ed tho charges made by Clement that State money had round lis way Into the pockets of republican leaders and that thero was nothing to show for the Incronsed expense by showing whe.rp the money had been used, lie said that In W3 tho Stato spent only $3(iVpO for the care of the Insane bo cause each town was taking ca.ro of Its own patients. The State now pays JM.OOO more man it did in 183 for the care of such patients and each town Is relieved of the burden. Ho told of the Increase In the expense of the educational system, of the board of railroad commissioners nnd the Slate Inborn tory. none of which the voters wish to have dispensed with. In going through the list the speaker said thateery dollar of expense could be accounted for. LABOR AGAINST CLEMENT Credentials from Ogdensburtr Long shoremen Conclublve How elem ent's Paper Antagonized Unions. Montpeller. Aug. 27. A leading otllccr of the Trade and Labor Council states that the scattering of circulars attempting to discredit the representatives of different labor organizations who are arraigning P. W. Clement for his long-standing hostility to the Interests of laboring men and par ticularly to trade unions was without proper authority, and In no wise represents the sentiment of tho union men of this city.
