Rutland, Aug. Another Clemcnt-crnzed- Rutland-IIcrald bomb has fizzled and tho fumes arising therefrom are likely to drlvo moru votes from Clement supporters in this city to tho Proctor column than any thing else which has occurred In tho cam paign. This Is not merely a matter of common opinion, but a strong Clement man stated to a newspaper man to-day that U was the worst blow yet to Clement hojies In Rutland. Tho bomb was a sensational story pub- llrhed this morning In Clement's news paper to tho effect that a mason, Cut ting by name, had been discharged by Contractor C. E. Paige, mayor of this city. because he was opposed to Mead for city representative nnd Proctor for governor, This story .detailed a conversation between Cutting and Paige, In which tho latter told tho mason that he, Paige, wanted no man on the job who was against Mead and Proctor, etc. Major I'algo was very much surprised and amused when he rend the account, not having been interviewed by the lterahl in tho matter. Mr. Paige says that the statements made in the article are tin quallllcdlj' false; that no such conversa tion as that produced ever "occurred; that ho has nover Ineiulred into the political preferences of the men employed by him, nnd, In fact, Is taking no active part In polities nt present. Cutting was dis charged after being very Irregular In his work for several days, union men state that Cutting Is a man they would not be lieve under oath. Twelve men employed by Contractor I'alre on tho samo job on which Cutting worked, were Interviewed to-day and each and every ono declared that Paige had never mado any advances to them regarding politics or mado any requirements of them regarding tho pres ent city and Stato campaign. The wholo thing resolves Itself Into a malicious canard for political purposes, built upon tho misrepresentations, of n grouchy nnd absolutely unreliable man, by Clement's organ, Mayor Palgo has pre pared a statement of tho facts, which ho has .iiibmitted to the Herald asking them to be fair enough to publish It, THE POULTNEY RALLY OUTDREW FUSION FIZZLE.

REFORM SPELLING President Roosevelt Has Officially Endorsed the Carnegie Movement. ORDERS TO PUBLIC PRINTER, All Document,. Emanating from the White House to He Spelled In (he New Style The President' Mea ntime Hereilfler Will Sny Tliru" nnd "Tho.' Oyster Bay, Aug. 21. President Roose velt has endorsed the Cnrncgle spelling io form movement. Ho Issued orders to-day to Public Printer millings that here after all messages from the Prcsldeift nnd till other documents emanating from tho White House shall bo printed In accord ance with tho lecommcndatlon of tho spelling reform committee headed by Hrunder Matthews, professor of English in Columbia Fnlvcrsltj-. This committee has published a list ot 100 words In which spelling is reformed. This list contains such worcls as "thru" and "tho" as the spelling for "through" and "though." Tho President's official sanction of this reform movement Is regarded as tho most effective and speediest method of Inaugu tatlng the new system of spelling through out the country. Not only will tho print ed documents emanating from tho Presi dent utilize the icfnrm spelling but his correspondence nlso will he spelled In tho new style. Secretary I.nidi has snt for the list of 100 words which have been reform ed and upon Its nrrlvnl will Immediate ly order nil correspondence of the Pres ident nnd of the executive forco of tho White House to bo spelled In accord ance therewith. As the spelling re form committee shall adopt new re forms they will bo adder to the Presi dent's list and also to that of tho pub lic printer. AVlillc the order to the public printer to-day does not contemplate Immedi ate reform in tho spelling of ofTlplal documents from the executive depart ment In Washington, It Is regarded more than likely tho respective heads Of tho departments will fall In line with the President's ideas nnd have their oftlcl.il documents printed In tho new spelling. ENGLISHMEN DISAPPROVE. Do Mot I.Ike Jhr President's Endorse ment of IN'evr Spelling. London, Aug. 2o. President Iloosevelt's decision to adopt the reformed spelling In his messages nnd In executive correspond ence Is commented upon by the newspa pers of London this morning In anything but a sympathetic spirit. Tho Standard bluntly declares that tho President overrates his powers, adding that 11 declines to believe that scholarly and rultflreil Amnrlnnnn will fl.irriflre the 'history and meaning of tho language by iinoptlng the "Carnegie Jargon. Other of the newspapers deal with the matter In a humorous vein. The Daily News points out that It American publishers wish to invade the P.rltish market they should be conserva tive in their orthography. The Chronicle, wl ich has more sym pathy with some of :he changes, says: "Whether we like tho new spelling or not It probably w!l' bo forced upon us because tho United States Is coming more and more Into control of the printing presses of the English speaking world. If once President ltoosovelt can estab lish uniformity In Ai .erica on the Hiks he prescribes tho new spelling will be likely before long to beenmo dominant In Great Hrltaln also but ns he is strong he might have been merciful and summoned an Anglo-American congress to endeavor to arrive at an agreement on a common mode of spelling so that the President's English and tho King's English should be the same."

Tho day's prngrnmmo began at (Rupert whore nn outdoor rally was held 'at two o'clock this nftcrnoon, Hetweon 400 and C00 peoplo gathered at a beautiful spot, In n handsome grove of trees and n.nu ..ii. i-ruciur a nno reception. Tito Pawlet band rendered one of their excel lent concerts following which Mr. Proctor was Introduced nnd spoke on the Import ant Issues for half an hour, his speech being heartily received. Ho was followed by Frank Archibald of Manchester who defended the Stato from charges of graft and got Clement classi fied In the famous list of grafters and traitors who have preceded him. The rally was a splendid success and following It tho ladles of tho town served Ico cream and cake while tho band played several selections. Tho Manchester Opera. House was filled to-night with tho biggest crowd In Its history whllo another big crowd was packed about the doors unnblo to gain admission. Seated on tho stage with tho speakers wero J. H. Hoteten, W. II. Shel don, O. M. Itarber, Judge K. 7.. Bates of Pennington. M. F. Roberts of Rupert, li. K. Slmonds and J. W. Fowler. Frank Archibald presided and a full concert by tho Union band of Manchester opened the feast of good things which rapidly suc ceeded each othor. Mr. Proctor's reception when Introduced was a fine testimonial and ho responded with an able and convincing address on th" absorbing topics of tho campaign. Ho dwelt on his Idea of true progress and the way In which the State should bo built up nnd maintained. Ho resented the charges of graft nnd misappropria tions of Stato funds, and talked briefly on tho benefits of the educational fund of 40,000 passed by tho last Legislature, and also touched on tho State highwaj' and Statu school tax. It Is the right and duty of all, said Mr. Proctor, to know about our system of tnxatlon as It touches all. Ho referred tr tho taxes which wcro reduced for local purposes nnd the support of the State government and Its use for tho expense of tho Ieglslature and the support of our State Institutions. He covered the history of tho corporation tnx Imposed about 2C years ago and the collateral Inheritance tax, and ot the growth of tho revenue from them until It amounted this last year to over i'00,000 and was sufficient to pay all of tho expenses of the State with out leaving an direct tax for the sup port of the State government. In tho Legislature of 1D00. said Mr. Proctor, tho House passed a bill to In crease the tax on corporations, It went to tho Scnnto and was icferred to tho committer; of finance whoso chairman reported it adversely November "7 and tho bill was killed. The' samo day that samo chairman reported favorably a bill to raise, n direct tax for tho sup port ot the Stato government and such a bill was passed, leaving a direct tax of 15 cents. Tho man who made both thoso reports was P. W. Clement nnd the direct tax thus levied for tho sup port, of the Stato government wns tho Inst one wo have had for that purpose. Mr. Clement, said tho speaker, seems to be as much dissatisfied with tho State method of raising her revenuo as with her method 'of expending. Judg ing by his record, Mr. Clement Is more friendly to tho raising of funds for thu State by direct tnxntion upon tho people thnn by taxes from tho corpora tions. Mr. Proctor's speech was re ceived with continued applause nnd mado a lasting Impression on all who heard It. Congtessman Foster had a warm wel come and he spoko proudly of the Stato and her Institutions and emphatically denied that she was or had been tied to a post. He said that during the pASt 10 years Vermont as a part of our great nation had enjoyed the greatest prosperity nnd wealth of blessings that had over como to any peoplo, of any nation ol any time, Ilo showed how that Vermont had gained In manufactures during the ,paot live years, 47 1-2 per cent, nnd that In all things sho had kept step with hei sister States, and abreast of the timet 111 all branches of Industry reflecting such great credit upon her people. Mr. Foster referred to the opposition cry of "Too much Proctor," and told of how sinci Moses time, that same old howl had gone up. He .paid a touching nud beautiful trl buto to tho character uud worth ol Senator Proctor which brought thunder ous npplauso. H. H.

DurlnB nil tho proceedings In his trial, John Brown never stirred from his couch, but lay with closed eyos, apparently un conscious of tho legal battling for his life; and when the Jury filed Into tho room nnd recorded their verdict of guilty on each of three Indictments, he merely turned over on his 3ldo nnd settled himself moro comfortably upon his pillow. When tho clerk demanded If ho could as sign any reason why sentence should not bo pronounced upon him, he stared at the bench In evident nstonlshment, and it was some moments before ho answered. "I havo , may It please the court, a few words to say," he began. In the first place, 1 deny everthlng but what I have nil along admitted the design on my pnrt to freo thu slaves. That wns nil I Intended Now, If It Is neces sary that I forfeit my life for the further ance of tho ends of Justice, and mlnxlo my blood with tho blood of millions In this slave country whoso rights are dis regarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust en actments, I submit. Let It bo done. Let me say on word further. 1 feel entirely satisfied with the treatment I have re ceived on iny trial. Considering all the circumstances, It has been more generous than I expected. But I feel no conscious ness of guilt, I havo stated from the first what was my Intention nnd what was not. Now 1 have done." In tho hush that followed this quiet, simple utterance, John Brown was een tenced to bo hanged on Desember 2, and a few momonts later ho was smuggled out of the building, net a man In tho audience being permitted to stir until he had been safely returned to his cell with out the assistance of the militia, whose services Judge Parker had haughtily do. dined, holding that soldiers had no busi ness t a court of law Frederick Tw Hill In Ha?'"'

THE VICTIM MAY NOT LIYE llnd AI Shot Removed from Ills Jloily 4 Ilnrnnrd Attempted to End Ilia Life by Tnklnc Iodine Vo Captured Later nnd Is Held for the Grand Jury. Rutland. Aug. 24. Dankl B.irnard fir reasor.3 unknown last evening about seven o'clock wont Into the barnyard of Isaac Germain, In Chittenden, and with out a word emptied the contents of a shot gun Into tho body of John Cassidy, who was at the time milking a cow. Cassidy Is In a critical condition, and it Is not at all unlikely that Barnard, now In custody, will havo to faco tho charge of murder. Dr. IL II. Swift of PIttsford. who at tended the wounded man. extracted 42 shot from his flesh. As a soquel to tho shooting. Barnard, while In hiding from tho officers, attempt ed to tako his own life. Ilo swallowed a considerable quantity of Iodine, but tho drug would not stay upon his stomach and his purpose failed. Barnard was captured this afternoon at his hiding place on tho premises of his father in Chittenden, not far from tho jrccno of tho shooting, by Constablo J. E. Tcnnlcn of Ilttsford. He was evidently there when tho placo was rearched last night, but In some way succeeded In evad ing the oiricers In their first search. Cassidy looked up from hb milking Just as Barnard entered th yard, but said nothing. Tho next lime ho glancod up. It was Just In tlmo to seo Barnard dis charge the weapon full upon him Thn oauto of tho affair has been a matter c mystery, for as far ns known thero haa been no bad blood between tho two men. They had boon together before during Thursday, neither had been drinking, and so there has bien nothing but conjecture ns to tho reason for Barnard's deed. There Is nothing to substantiate a theory uf mental unbalance upon tho part of Barnard.. At a hearing this evening Barnard waived examination nnd awaits the action of tho grand Jury. No ball was fixed. Barnard Is nil unstrung and says ho took tho lodlno by mistake. Nothing has developed to show the motlvo for thn shooting. Catsldy may recover, but It Is still doubtful.
