Tho hardest fought and most strenuous campaign in tho history of Vermont poli tics closed Tuesday with a magnificent triumph tor decency and honesty In politi cal methods. Tho verdict of tho people of this Btato Is u complete refutation ot ' the groundless charges niaflo against the commonwealth and Us administrators by ,P. W. Clement and his followers. .t no tlmo In the past six months has the out- 'como of the contest been In doubt, and It Is a splendid testimonial of the good sense of Vormonters that they put the stamp of disapproval upon Its band of defamers and dotmctors so completely und with euctPgreat force. The Nowb hero wlahos to express Itn ad miration for V. W. Clement. Ilo Btnrted Ills campaign for tho governorship with no valid Issue. He was simply possessed of a bottomless barrel of wealth and mas torlv executive ability to marshal his forces. Ills heart was full of vengeful- ness, and his campaign was solely banco upon criticism nnd yet he commanded the suffrages of one-third tho electors of Vermont. nvery charge against tho ltnpubllcan party, every nllegatlon on dishonor und jrraft and malfeasance In ofllco against the public olllclals, was punctured und punc tured again nnd proven untrue; and yet with magnificent persistency and effront try Mr. Clement and his managers ro- Jterated tnnr dlpproven nnd discounted charges, and n tho face of .the returns made one-third ot tho ekctors ot the Btato swallow them.

A LINGKRINO RBMINI8CENCR. (From tho Mnrrlsvlllo News nnd Citizen.) Wonder now what Mayor Hurko thinks of getting Into bed with the arch grnfter."

It went for It so cleverly thnt wo think It will never como to the surrnco again A MAN WITHOUT AN ISSUE. (From the Ilarre Times.) The tremendous slump of Clement from his support of four years ngo, ns shown by thu election of Tuesday, Is accounted for by the one fact that In 1802 he was sustained by a real Issue, while this year he depended upon a moro or less flimsy structure manufactured to fortify his per sonal nmbltim to bo governor of Ver mont. Four years ago Clement would have been successful If he ever was to bo successful In Vermont politics, for then ha had a plat form which would hear weight. Coming at a period whon tho tate was dlssatlslled with the method of dealing with the liquor question, his local ptlon Issuo was of paramount import- nee. Tho voters of the Stnte seized the Issue with avlulty and Clement camo near disrupting the Ilepubllcnn party, causing the election of governor to bo thrown Into a thoroughly r publican Leg islature.

The most .cltlng, and, as we believe, the most Important and significant cam paign which ,'is been waged jn tho State politics of Vermont within the memory of tlio present gmcrntlon, has ended In tho overwhelming defeat of Perclval W.

Thus fell the man without a real Issue; anil that ex plains It nl. CI.EMHNT'S SLUMP. (New York Mall.) That a candidate may do well as an Independent going It alune and poorly as a fusion nominee Is illustrated by the case of Clement of Vermont. Four years ago Clement, running as an independent, polled 1!8,i)i0 votes, and so largely drew from the republicans that the election was thrown Into tho Legis lature, This year Clemmt was Indorsed the pleasantries er-lianged, and the scores paid off, tho ques'lon as to the real rea son for Mr. Clement's defeat Is worth se rious consideration both by his supporters and his opponents. In his speech In Ilrat tleboio, nnd, wo think, In every speech afterward, Mr. Clement said that his movement was going to succeed because It sprang fiom the people because at last tho "common people" were aroused nnd were gobig to take their affairs Into their own hands. Til exact opposite of this proved to be true. Mr. Clement did not succeeed because he did not reach or convince the great mass of self-contained Indeuendent voters of Vermont. Refnre he had been a week on tho stump it be came clear to thoughtful men thnt his main stock 111 trnde was a fur' of ac- a formidable foo, Those who once sneer ed at Mr. Proctor as a weakling, put for ward Bololy on account of hLs parentage and hla wealth, are long since silenced.

At the siuno time It was nu edu cative experience to Mr. Proctor, end ho will be a better governor for having thus mot so many of his constltuents-to-be, nnd having studied them so closely.

It brought him a warmth of loyalty that ho could never have commanded had he not taken tho stump. And ho was ably seconded by Messrs. Prouty, 9'tts and Graham, whoso telling blows counted everywhere. VERMONT'S NEW LEGISLATURE. ((From the Ilarre Times.) The porsonnel of tho next Vermont Leg islature as Indicated by the names found In the returns from tho towns of tho Htnto gives thn Impression that tho as sembly will bo a cayrible ono. To be sure thero are the usual number of new names names of men of no legislative experience an., consequently untried arfll- tles. many of whom will doubtless de velop Into valuable members. To coun teract this untried mass, howevor, there nro seveml men both experienced nnd capable Among foremost of these Is rhomas C. Choney of MOrrlstown, who from Ills services as clerk of the House for many terms knows perhaps more of the byways and turns of legislation thnn any man who will go to Montpeller next month. This experience, matched with Mr. Cheney's ability to futfil tbr duties of the office, will probably land him In the speaker's chair to succeed John H. Merrltlcld. At least, ho Is the foremost candidate for the plice at the present time. Former Lieutenant- Governor Stnn- ton of Roxbury was slated ns a candi date, hut ho fell'before the onslntight of the democratlo attack last Tuesday and Is thereforo out thu running. Thero may be some opposition to the election 'of Mr. Cheney as speaker, on tho ground that It Is his first term on the floor of the House, and If this opposition should he como greatly pronounced there are three men who would tie considered. They are Allen M. Fletcher ot Cavendish, Halo K. Darling of Chelsea nnd Roger W. Hurl burd of Hyde Park. Any one of the three would make a strong speaker from natural bent and ex perlence. Messrs. Darling and Hurlbtird nre lawyers and very prominent In their profession, while Mr. Fletcher has been a leading business man. These men will be lendors In the House at all events. Re sides them there are F. C. Archibald of Manchester and Guy W. Rnlloy of Es sex among the tried men. The real lead er of the minority party should lie EH Jt. Porter of Wilmington, a quiet foreful man, who does moro than he says. Mr. Porter was recently candidate for lleu- trnant-govornor.-John H, Senter of Mont peller Is another of tho leading demo crats In tlio body and It Is safe to say that Mr. Senter will be ono of the mouth pieces of tho Democratic party. In addi tion to those nlready mentioned there nre several strong men who have their way to make in legislative fields. They In clude S. Holllster Jackson of Rarre, E. W. Gibson of Rrattleboro, H. C.

"VERMONT IS LOYAL." (From the Troy Times.) Vormont saw no reason Tuesday for deserting tho republican column to satisfy somebody's personal ambitions. Thero- foro Vermont elected a republican State ticket by 1(1,000 or more majority, chose a Senate every member of whioh Is a republican and selected a lower housa of the Legislature which lias an overwhelm Ing majority ot tho same party. Fletcher D. Proctor, regularly noml nated by the republicans and a son of United States Senator Hodtlcld Proctor, an old nnd faithful warhorso In the po litical Held, is a young man of strength and capacity. Tho Republican party se lected him as the best man to put In tho governor's chair. The people of the Stato have Indorsed the party and its candl date. Mr. Proctor will be an admirable governor and will represent thoaa Inter csts which are worth preserving In the public life ot the State, Tho lesson of tho Vermont election Is that tho people nro satisfied with the Itepubllcan pdVty nnd swlth Hb work In national, State and local matters, and. are not willing to dtiregard that party's splendid service, In protecting right prtn clples In government and in promoting prosperity, Just to satisfy the aspirations of Individuals who are dissatisfied on their own account, The deeds of tho Republican party, from the Whlto House to the most limited field of aotlon, have been made possible by the union of republicans In loyalty to party action and party leaders. That Is the only way In whioh the work that has been done by tho republican party can be continued In future. The voter with conr mot) sense will look behind all attack upon tho action ot the Republican party through Its regularly accredited agnnoles and Inqulro, llrst, If those assaults tire In stlguted or fomented by the Demoaratlo jiarty as a partisan mc - for the evils which he aliegc-n in oxisi.

Clement and his own per sonal ends. If Mr. Clement had convinced the pco pie of Vermont that even one of his most serious charges w.is true-that tlio gov ernment of tho State was corrupt and that she was tho prty of a ring of gratt ers or self-seekers, not all the machine Influence that over existed could h.lvo prevented them from rising up and driv ing out the corruptlonlsts. Mr. Clement did not succeed because he did not ccn vlnce tho "common people," of whom ho talked so much, that ho had nny real moral purpose at heart. His overthrow Is not In the true sense a partisan vies. tor'. It Is the victory of the sober com mon sense of the people of Vermont A CAMPAIGN OF WIND. (From the Randolph Herald.) Tho victory Is to clean-cut, so over whelming, ns to tied llttlo comment. It registers tho npproval of the peoplo of Vermont of tho record, the policies and the candldntes of the Republican party. It puts the foot down hard on Mr. Clem ent nnd his propaganda. It sayB that thn party In power Is entitled by Its ac complishment to continue, Its work for the State. It disposes of Mr. Cfcmont fully und finally. Mr, Clement conducted a remarkable campaign with the material ho had at hand. It required little discernment to see that ho lacked all Issues of impor tance. It was a campaign of wind, per force. The fuslonisis mndo a great deal of noise, with little or noting to Justify tho outcry. All the serious charges they brought up to prove them reacted on the Instigators, of course. The sober Judg ment of tho Btato could not pass sen tenco of condemnation on tho Republi can party without more reason than wns at any time disclosed. Another thing: Vermont Is naturally a strongly republican State. Loyalty to the party still counts for much, w nen Mr. Clemont cut loose from that party and hitched un with tho democrats, with no Just provocation for tho action, he forfeited much support that might havo been his within the party. It looked too much llko a last desperate attempt to restore his political fortunes at any and all cost. He could not fairly hope to lead a very considerable following out or tne party under such conditions. In Fletcher D. Proctor tho republicans IxaAar in Mr. ClAOlUlt KVBHYONK OF CLKMHNT'S SPECIFIC CIIA1U1F.S- RKFI'TKD FROM THE RECORDS. (From Ilostou IWrld, 1ml.) As the first State to hold an election this year, Vermont glvis no Indication of disposition to turn against the Re publican iwrly. The raniisilgn was waged largely on State issues, Mr. Clem ent, who ran ns an Independant i-andl-date with the Democratic party's In dorsement, making his. light chiefly on the ground that tho Stato had not been well governed by tho republicans. He failed to malse good because almost every specific charge made by him was refuted from the record. Mr. Proctor gets his election by more than 15.00 majority. not so large as Vermont has frequently given to republican candidates, but large enough to settle for good the aspirations of Mr Clement,, and large enough to show that no revolution Is likely to occur there before the next presidential election. Roth republican congressmen were re-elected by largo majorities. Mr. Clement, with his democratic .support, appears to have run behind his vote of two years ago, whfn ho was only an Independent candi date. (From St. Albans Messenger.) Tho political campilgn that closed In the State election yesterday has been essentially a campaign of education with the result that might have beon foreseen by Mr. Clement when the voters came to Inquire soberly and thoughtfully into the facts, they found that thn truth dis credited his charges ami repudiated his pretentions of reform. Thi election of Fletcher D. Proctor by a substantial ma Jorlty In the face of the fusion claim that the Stato would go for Mr. Clement by a majority almost us large, can bo view ed In no other light. Thu revubllcan pnrty has been vindicated. The repub llcnn candidate, has been vindicated. Hotter than nil, 'tl voters ot Vermont have refused to Indorso at the polls tho scandalous calumnies- that wero put In circulation about her State ofllcals and her public affairs.
