Iliirlliigtoii, Henry Denlson, thc American member of the Japanese foreign office, who was practlcnlly unknown except to the diplo mats of the woild until tho time of thn Portsmouth pence conference, Is really the power behind the throne. There have been aliens beside nnd behind other thrones, says a writer In T. 1. O.. Sir. T. 1, O'Ccnnor's new Uncllsh weekly. but In no modern State does there live n man bearing the relation to his gov ernment und exercising thc wide nnd beneficial Induence with Its powerful neighbors that Denlson does In Japan. For nearly thirty years he has held his post In the foreign olllce In Toklo. He Is a modest man, this Denlsrn: one who hns always kept himself In the back ground, nnd his work for n quarter of a century Is merged, unidentified, in the general accomplishment of the govern ment which he serves. It circumstances were 'different, says his F.ngllKh admirer who has written thc ap preciation of him, his name would proh- ably be as familiar In j.ondon as those of Lansdowne, Circy, liny, Delcnsse, Von Hulow, U'lmnlorff and the rest, for he Ii of their rank. Denlsrn prefers the satisfaction that comes from work well done rather than the praise of the world. He lives quietly In one of the smaller official residences n Toklo, almost u reeluso save to his Inti mate friends, to whom he Is said to bring a charming simplicity of manner, a splrn did measure nf warmth and genially and ii delightful fund nf wit nnd humor. He Is said rather to avoid the social llfi of the city and manifestly to shun tht Inevitable Intrigue nnd personal political play of the diplomatic capital. He rarely absents himself for a day from the fore ign office, to which he goes early nnd at which he frequently remains until far In to the night. Outside of nn official list that shows that he ranks next to thc minister nf foreign affairs In Japan, that he Is a Judge of the Hague tribunal ant that ho was officially Included In the Jap anese pence embassy at Portsmouth, noth ing official concerning him can be found. Horri In Vermont some time In the 'tOs, he went to Washington ns a youth from college to take u departmental clerkship nnd tht re he remained through tho Civil War. Progress In the department was slow, no one eemlug to detect genius In this un assuming young New Knglantler, nnd dis couraged by the humdrum life Denlon sought and obtained a ctisular clerkship at Yokohama. Japan was Just then opening up to out world nnd upon the few known facts of the country had been bullded romance that chained the Imagination of the young departmental clerk. He crossed the Pacific late In the Ws upon a Journey that was to open to him his great career In life. These ecnsular days really prepared Denl son for his career. There were extra territorial rights In those days, and from those rights nnd the first unfair treaties negotiated with Japan gtew a vast number of Intricate legal questions. Denlson's inclination was to the law First a student of It because of the neces sities of his work, he later became a mas ter of It through his growing love for It The possessor of a completely balanced Judicial mind, a Judgment ns dispassion ate ns a machine and a memory almost ns accurate as the graver's art, he made splendid progress in the law, nnd within a few years he resigned from the con sular service to practise law privately! among the foreign community In Japan. Frequent examples of his talent brought him to the notice of the Japanese govern ment, and In 1&S0 fount Inouye, one ol the elder statesmen of Japan, then min ister of forelsii affairs. Invited him to Join the permanent staff of his office. In thoM" years there w-ro hundreds ol Western teachers, experts and guides ot various kinds In the employ of thc gov ernment teaching the people the ways of the West; but the pupils soon became masters nnd score by score tho Instruc tors were dropped. Only a handful now remain and Denlson Is their lender, In rank, pay nnd consideration. Denlson has broadened nnd progressed with his work until In his knowledge ol International law, the history of diplo macy, usage nnd custom and tho general science of government he Is the equal of any living man. It Is difficult to sin gle out the particular achievements o: this wonderful, silent, reserved man whe stands forever In the background, but there has not been nn Important foreign affair for twenty years In which ho has not been consulted. Throughout the troublesome days of tht war with China he was ever at the side of fount Mutsu, then minister of foreign affairs. Denlson s part In that piece o history will probably nnver be known All that we know of It Is that at tht close of the war Denlson was summoned to court to receive a handsome grant of money and the thnnks of the royal family. In the affair with Russia he was con stantly at the side of Ilaron Knmura, and a llrltlsh diplomat was beard to declarf that DenWon wrote In behalf of Japan the hulk of thc wonderful correspondence from Toklo, pithy, Incisive, clear nnd logl cnl, that preceded the war. Th.e same llrltlsh diplomat was author ity for the statement that Denlson ad vised the Japanese government through out the negotiations for thc first treaty alliance with Great Ilrltaln. Denlson played an Important part In the treaty revision that, ten years bro claimed the attention nf tho world, and there hnve been few domestic concern! of high Importance In which his wonder- fill knowledge, Judgment and resource have not been used to great advantage bv the Japanfso government. At ports- mouth, when Wltte and Komura hnd con eluded peace, Denlson was designated, on behalf of the Japanese, to frame the iiirieeinent and treaty that were later signed. There hnvn been changes Innumerable In the government of Japan since Denlson first entered the service, but each sucecd Ing cabinet has lecognlzed his worth and Insisted on his retention. He has received the highest decorations granted by the crown to those who nro not princes ol the blood, nnd If he ever enred to tnl.t advantage nf great honorary position he wotihl 1)0 welcomed everywhere through out the land ns u great noble. Ho Is one of a very small number of orelgncrf ever admitted to the slightest of Inllmatt approaches to thn Emperor, and among his valued possessions arc several costly Imperial present. (From the Heruilngton rtnnncr.) "Ellsha May, who Is holding up thn domocrntlc end ot Sir. Clomcnt's speech-making tour, has discovered another source of graft and that la In thn Ice water tanks In tho county court houses. In Island Pond ono even ing this week Sir. Stay said -tho ex pense for Ico water ran from nothing In Ksfe-x, Orund isle ind Windham counties to $.".2.1Mn Addlstn nnd $15.1.70 In IJennlnBton." Tho above Hem which la part of the fuslonlst campaign thunder Is being cir culated around the State but It Is pure unadulterated lying ns far ns this county Is concerned. Judge Carney, who Is the oldest man about the courthouse says that there has not been n cake of Ico around there within his memory nnd County Clerk Cushnmn says the namo thing. Sheriff Wilson, In Those, nccounts such a charge would appear, says thero has never been a bill for Ico since he has bctn In office. If this Is a sample of the truth of thc Clement argument, It Is no wonder that the Clement movement Is fading awny. liOUSR OF CORRF.CTION. THIS (From the Landmark,) One of the Stnto Institutions that has been hold up to the public by Candidate Clement as a glaring example of man agement In which graft has nbounded for years, has been fully Investigated and come out of the ordeal without a spot. We refer to tho House of Correc tion at Rutland. The investigating com mittee could find no crookedness In the financial conditions. F. S. Pratt of llrnt tlcboro, an expert accountant, who is nn ncknnwletlged authority with Sir. Clem ent, uses this emphatic language In ref erence to tho examination he made: I have no hesitation In reporting: First, That the accounts have been accurately and honestly kept. Second, That the busi ness hns been prudently and skilfully managed. Third, That no unnecessary help has been emplojfd or excessive salar ies paid. Fourth, That there has been no 'graft' for anyone connected with tho department." Now what will Sir. Clement do for h striking illustration of graft In methods Vermont public Institutions? Ills charges have not been substantiated and It Is high time that he ceased making them. CLEMKN'T AND RAILWAY RATES. (From the Rutland News.) Tlank No. 13 of the republican plntform reads as follows: "We are In hearty sympathy with the great buttle being fought by the Republican party in behalf nf the people against tho evil ot rebate, favoritism and discrimination in inter state commerce. We are In favor by proper State legislation of protecting thc people of the State aga'nst. like evils with in the State In non-Interstate commerce." Right here Is the mnsl Important mat ters to come before the Legislature at Slontpeller tills tall. Tim national Con gress, inspired by Theodore Roosevelt, passed .1 law nt the last session which It Is believed will prevent rebates and dis criminations in freight rates y railroads doing an Interstate business. The law nf tho Fn ltd States cannot reach discriminating and rebates made In any Stnto of the I'nlon, and the prac tice cannot bo entirely wiped out until every Stale stands lx'ilnil tho nation. The republican platform, promises to be with President Roosevelt) and a rcpubll can Legislature will cortalnly pass a rall- rond rate bill this fnll. Is there need of such a law In Vermont? Experience proves that such a nocd ex ist. P. W. Clement, thc personally conduct ed candidate for governor, owns thc Ilrls- tol railroad which runs from New Haven Junction to Bristol. Coal for the Hristol railroad and for Jlrlstol Is an Important Item. Coal ship ped from Rutland to New Haven Junc tion cost P. W. Clement's railroad 20 cttits a ton freight until his secret ar rangement was discovered by Attorney General Clarke C. Fitts on August S. 1!';. It cost every other dealer or consumer Jl.23 a ton freight. In other words, Clement hnd coal car ried to New Hnven Junction Just Jl.W a ton cheaper than any other man. This was not a rebate. It was a dis crimination, and under the national laws Sir. Clement would be subject to a line and Imprisonment. If Vermtnt wants to aid President Roosevelt In his tight for compulsory fair ness on the part of great railroads and shippers It must make a law which pro vides a like penalty for guilty ones. The Vermont Legislature will pass such a bill. What would become of It If presented to P. W. Clement, governor, for his .sig nature? Tlils same P. W. Clement made thc In dependent platform nnd dictated what should bo and what should not be In the democratic platform. Search both of those platforms and not a single word concerning llio regulation of railway rates can be found. Do the people of Vermont want such a man for governor? EVERYTHING TALKS REAL ISSUES OF THE CASIPAIGN PUT CL15.MENT. Is proposed Is "What nro you going to glvo us In Its placo?" and this question Sir. Clement has not nnswercd. Sir. Clement Is no fooled. Ho knows that tho peoplo haw nlzod lllm up, and ho has not thc remotest Idea that Jils ennvass will come within 1R.00O votes of success. HOT SHOT FOTt CLEMENT AND HIS HERALD, (From tho Barton Monitor.) It Is not only an tinnardonablo Injustice to tho press but n malicious misuse of tho confidence of the peoplo In the press for the Rutland Herald to mislead, mis fits to and misrepresent tho apparent' strength of thc fusion movement as It does through Its columns. Wo have ns yet been nn eye witness to but one fusion rally, tho one hold In this placo and of which we spoke last week. Tho Herald slated In bold blnck type without the slightest quiver of voice or conscience that the attendance was 00. This, Is an Absolute falsehood. The attendance at no one time was more than 60 If It tvns that nnd the entire attendance somo go ing out before thc spoaklng was over was not more than 60. It was with ex tromo difficulty the speakcrn, C. H. Daven port and S. R. Sloulton, found a person to Introduce them. They Informed the writer that they, did not know a single Clement man In this village, nnd tho writer certainly does not himself. Then to havo one of Vermont's own papers, a paper with Influence to mould the mind and character of tho Vermont youth nnd a paper that Is now being sent broad cast Into every Vermont home for politi cal purposes, state that the attendance was nool It Is more than any sensible per sen can stand. It Is disgusting, repulsive, Wc read In tho Herald also nccounts of fusion rallies In other parts .-of the State and even In our own county where falsehood Is the dally practice of this paper In Its reports of the so-called nil lies. Then to think that Perclvat W. Clement, owner ot the paper, Is the man who wants the voters to put him In tht governor's chair to govern this fair State of ours! What do you think of such n man nnd such a paper nnd such an In fluence? Will your voto bo for It? BURLINGTON SAVINGS BANK. UNTOnroI'-ATED 1847.

The passing of anothtr week makes It evident that It Is Mr. Clement's policy to avoid any real discussion of State is sues, to Ignoro nil tho questions which havo been asked lllm about his position on Important matters ot State policy, to Ignoro also tho fact that, ono after an other, his charges and accusations havo been proved absolutely false, and to icly on his cry, "Smash the machine," for whntever support ho may get. We have nn doubt this s a wise policy for Clem cut, for wero he onco to begin to answer questions or to try to discuss Issues he would flounder to his ruin. Just how would .Mr, Clement'H canvass look, If, for Instance, lie was to come to the mark, man fashion, and confess the truth about his charges against the State auditor's office; or about the House of Correction and Its business with the Ver mont Marble company and tho crooked ness that ho said rletcher Proctor had "concealed"! or about tho Increase In our State 'expenses and what has caused tho Increaso? What If Mr. Clement were to show the people an open hand about his private descrlmlnatlng freight rntu on coal or about the political machine which he Is trying to build up? Mr, Clement keeps on with his nightly performance nnd his nightly declamation about n Stnto boss ruled and arepubllcan machine to bo smashed, and ho gets a certain amount of applause, but ho Is not fooling the thinking people of the State. They discovered before ho had completed his first week on tho stump that his only stock In trade was vllllllcatlnn of the State of Vermont nnd Its Institutions, and an attempt to tear down the existing or der of things, without even a suggestion of nuythliiH positive or constructive that he would do If given thn chance.

It Is not known with nny certainty when thc first pair of parallel tracks for wheel ed trafllc was laid down In Orent Ilrltaln, or whether It was of wood or of stone. Perhaps the former Is the more probable, the material being found everywhere and Its long shape being much more sugges tlvo of Utiles for such a purpose than tone. Hut so long lis each neighborhood produced everything It wanted such things were not needed. At least the destruction of timber nenr London made tho use of coal Indispensable. This could bo conveyed by sea, and one of the few places where It could bo got with the limited appliances and skill of those days was the valley of the Tyne, Just above and below Newcas tle. About 300 years ago a considerable trade in coal for shipment began there, which soon led to dltlleultles as to getting It from the mines Into the boats. The dis tances were small, but tho art of road making had died out and In bad weather rack horses could not carry enough to render their use profitable. Somo un known benefactor to his species nt least laid down two paralled lines of timber for carts to run on. Probably they were mere ly stout planks at first, hut the sinking at the Joints would soon suggest that other planks should be placed under them, the structure then becoming fairly efficient. When flanges, either on the wheels or tho rails, were first Invented, or by whom, Is not known, but It was apparently toward tho end of the seventeenth century. These wooden railroads seem to havo survived throughout the greater part of the following century, nnd even Into the nineteenth In somo cases. Tho Mlddleton colliery railroad at Leeds, for Instance, was of wood until It was relald for the uso of ISlenklnsop's rack rail engines. ThcSe were started In 1M2 and were unquestion ably the first commercially successful locomotives. Many other wooden rail roads had existed In the same neighbor hood for fifty or sixty years previously, and no doubt In other colliery districts as well. One was laid down near Sheffield, for Instance, so early as about 171?, ftom the Duke of Norfolk's colliery nt The Manor Into tho town, nearly one and one- half miles down hill. It lasted till 1773. when It was destroyed in a riot. Nest year it was reconstructed with tho first cast Iron flanged rails by James Outram. their Inventor. A wooden rallrond long existed at Hath. It was laid down In li.'.l by Tlalph Allen, who, having gained a for tune by post office contracts, acquired and develope t extensive quarries of the cele brated Hath oolite stone on Conine uown. These being at a great height, and away from any regular mode of transit, It be en me necessary to devise a means of bringing down such a heavy material. The wooden railroad occupied the site of what Is now called Prior Park road, and was laid nartlv upon low walls nnd partly on tho ground, "like tho wngonways belong ing to the collieries In the north of Eng land." The colllerv lines about Newcastle useu in the eighteenth century, rails or ncecn wood, carefully planed on the top and pegged down to cross pieces, which were even then termed "sleepers." Iongltudl- nal timbers In addition were sometimes used, the extra height being of use In en abling the cross sleepers to be welt cover ed up and protected from the action 01 wio horses' feet. There were usually two lines of rails, the descending one being called the main way, the other tho bye way. Tho cars held a Newcastle chaldron, or fifty-three hundredweight, r,.036 pounds. They were built or rtr planks, strenghten ed with Iron straps, and had oak or ash soles. They sloped forward) having slight ly larger "ivheels nt that end, which was found to eafe the draught. These wheels wero of cast Iron, the icar pair being mndo rolld, of pieces of beech wood dovetailed nnd cramped together. It was supposed that brakes held better on wood than on Iron.
