There was n hearing In Chittenden county court friday evening In tho nialtcr (if thn condemnation proceedings by the oil v of ButlltiRton. an appeal Irnm tin net Ion of tho city In sritostorlng tho property at the foot of College street for a public wharf. At the conclusion of tlir henrlng. the motlnn nrintght by tin- Central Vermont Railway company to dismiss tho proceedings was overruled by Judge llaselton. exceptions being al lowed. After thr- adjournment of court, the attorneys on hoth sides held a con ference and ngteed upon Z. S. Stanton of Roxhtiry. C J Van Vltct of Shot liurnc and L. C. Nbhols of Kssex ns commissioners to hear the case In the matter eif condemnation proceedings If the decision of the county court Is af finned by the supreme court, nnd also to hear the case which Involves the ex tension of College street to the lake front. The motion to dismiss was argued be Jurico H. tt. Powers of Mnr r'sville as the representative of the Rut land railroad, which has Interests In the matter, and as the rcpresentHtlves of the mortgagees of thn Central Vermont Rail way company. C. W Witters was present ti the representative of the Central Vermont but did not participate In the arguments. Tt. f. Brown and City At torney J. II. Macomber appeared for the ((.. Judge Towers, in arguing the motion to d smiss, said that under an act of the Legislature of lfteifi. the city claims an t unity to condemn land and to millet nnd maintain a public wharf. He argued first that authority had not been asked from the secretary of war to build a publle wharf: that the city had no power to construct a wharf and to become a public wharfinger; that the land in con troversy Is already devoted to a publlo use, that the city claims to own a site for a wharf at the foot of Maple street and finally that the act authorizing the wjiarf is Invalid and void in that It gives the city the right to determine tho necessity of a public wharf, to take Isrd fni' a site and to determine the dam ages, thereby becoming judge of its own case. Mr. Brown said It wns premature to rgue at present the question of getting authority from the secretary of war ns that official would want first to know where the wharf is to be built Thn rltv, he said, has authority to build nnd maintain a public whnrf, both bv virture of the rltv nnd charter and tho law of ir5 The land In question, 1 e argued, Is now leaded to the Shcpard A- .Morse Ijmber company and has no more to do with public use than the land behind the court house. Moreover, 'and already used for one public purpose Is some times taken for another public use. Although the opposition claims that the city has" a site at the foot of Maple street, the city's right to that property is strenuouosly opposed when ever It Is pressed. The matter of damages and every other question Involved Is not left -with the city, making the municipality the Judge of Its own rase, as In every Instance the railroad has the right to appeal. City Attorney Macomber in his argu ment emphasized the point that the con stitutionality of the city's claim Is not affected from the fact that It proposes to operate a public wharf.

The street was laid out many yfars ago but hns never been used ex cept by foot passengers. Several months npo tile board of al dermen appropriated 51.200 to be. used in opening the street nnd nt thn same time Issued an order for the removal of all obstructions. Saturday's hear ing was held to lve property ho!dfr a right to protest. O. J. Smith for the Haldwln Refrigerator company and K. .1. Booth for the J. R. linoth company appeared to protest, Inasmuch as the opening of the ftreet would necessi tate the removal of a large storehouse belonging to the Hnldwln company. Henry White, owner of the so-called Tamma.ny hall building, anil George Salger. owner of the department store on North nveniie, did not appear, al though the extension of Depot streel would Involve ( their property. The matter or tne extension or tne street was referred back to the board of al dermen. REXF.WAl.. She was so old, tho year, So .bent with nil that hows us more than days!

Weie lie "Senator Hale" lie could not feel more responsibly anxious to guard the eountrv from the mischiefs of the ext r.ivngaut Indulgence.! In the battleship furore, lie Hint tho lniilr nnil imnrrnHvf of The Hague conventions, to which the Cnlted States l a party, are in behalf of the limitation and gradual reduction, rei tnlnly not the Inereai-r, of the buiilen some armaments ,,f the nation, now nstly more a provocation unci niennc-j than a defense. The decrease uf the ma chinery for the arbitrament of the dis putes between nations by battle should keep steady and regular pace with tin increase of Hie machinery for their arbitrament by law and an International tribunal, until the war system of nations is entirely supplanted bv the iiidhlnl ystem. The development of tills international Judicial machine! v In the l,it in ears has been so grout , is tn be almost revo lutionary. The world meantime, arcord Ing to Dr. H.iie's brine and Inveter.it' optimism, is growing -t"ncllly better and not worse: the 1'nlted State.s is vastly stronger and therefore safer from at tack thin ever before: the adoption of the lira go doctrine by the last Hague conference, relieving us so hugely of our fancied responsibilities touching South America, and many other things have combined to lessen our clangers: and therefore we are without excuse in not lending the wotid In a policy of steady and rapid reduction of armaments. To talk of actually Increasing the number of our battleships Is, as In the rase of any nation which does it, faithfulness to the first principle of the action at The Hague, winch was so big with hope for mankind. Tin 1 Dr. Hale's simple, manly and strong philosophy; and he Pleaches it with all his might every day of every week. It chances that It Is In Washington, wheie he now is, that many of his most i eloquent and liiipieslve words in behalf of the peace cause have been spoken. 1 remember his presence on two successive ys In .lanuaiy, IfOl, nt the contention of the friends of international arbitra tion, under the presldencv of John W. foster, to promote treaties with Great Britain and other nations, and the meet ing to start the organization for the lu te rnatlnnnl peace congress which was to mrrt in the 1'nlted States the next autumn. The convention was memorable for the lesolullnn. report til by Judge Cray and unanimously adopted by those :fi leadcis of our International thought, urging I' at In the propos'd treaties evety dispute whatever, without reserva tion, should be referred to arbitration. Al Its public mass meeting in the after noon, nt the Lafayeite Square Theatre, our "grand old man" made the most, ilng'ng speech that was made. Dr. Hale Is the nestnr of the peace cause in America: and ills prnin'oence. Ir, the work to-ilav prnnpts reflections upon his long and useful service for the cause. I think, In the firt place, though i' was fa i from the flrM service, of Ills part in the .series of meetings held 'n Boston In the spring of irO, devoted n the subject of "the organization of the world." The meetings weie for the ex m ess purpose of arousing American in terest In the then approaching pence enn feience a I The Hague. They weie ar ranged by the Massachusetts flood Citi zenship society, with wh.ch Dr. Halo himself has so long been Identified, which thus well declaied International duty to be a prime factor In all good citizenship to-day. The various sides of the argu ment for "war agilnst war" were pre sented on successive Monday noons by some of the lending men and women in America. At the opening meeting Dr. Hale espoke nn "A Permanent Interui tlonal Tribunal." Most Impressive was tills fiist of the Boston meetings. A thoiiHind men and women gathered at that noon ho ir. Choi-ley's solemn hymn. "Give to us Peace in our Time. O Lord," was sung: nnd Dr. Hale gave his stir ring adeliess. It was especially lifting nnd noteworthy thai lie should have been piesent nt this first Hireling and been Its chief speaker lie hud bei n for j ears the prominent prophet in America of tile high cailM- in whose behalf The Hague confeience was oiled; and, In the ci Itlcal months pier-riling Hie assembling of the conference, he spoke oftener and with itt enter force in the Interests of the cause than nnj other min in America, I hail almost said than all other men. He made a long tour among the large towns of the middle States, speaking i verv night w ith a vigor and devotion, at threescoie and 13, which put younger men to Mmine. It was In the same spilni,r of 1SW that Dr. Dale stalled his little weekly pnp'T, the 1'caie Crusade, which lie kept going liidefaiigubh until The Hague tribunal wus an accomplished fuel. The half- dozen of us whom he picssrd Into set vice lo belli him will never forget thosil weekly meetings: III the dingy lieilford street olllce, which lie nude so fruitful iiiul Inspiring. It was a puzzle to us how lus bills were to lie paid, but some nngel of the tieasury seemed nlwnys to turn up In the pinch. -and he had quite Onlllenn serenity and ccnrldence that so long as he was "about his Father's business" the lorrow some, how would take care of Itself that time to this he has made the peiee cause the nioHt pioininent nun In his lit tlo Dend-a-llnnd Record. Sometimes al most the entire unmoor hns been given up tu It, and latterly ho bus liikcn to send 'fig out monthly broadsides full of ma terial concerning the cause, to hundreds of tho newspaper otllce.s of the country, I iometllncH woniln how mutt), even of his dear Boston friends, realize what an immense work he him done and Is doing In Ihlfi field. II was rrom Russia, nnd not from the 1'nlted Slates, that tho proposal which trsulteii in t10 firM Hague enferenco no t I ly came. On that point Dr. Hule's lf-99 sermon did not pli exact prophrrj. it is worth noting here, how ever, Unit the ilrst ilcflnllc proposal of such a conference did come from an American democrat, and not from a Rus sian Czar. It came from the Mnssa ihutctts priro society in ISM, in 111 form of a memorial to the Pirsldfnt of the fulled states, written by William Mllery chi lining. The words of Dr. Hale's 19 sermon wi ip l rnirinlierrd at the arbitration con ference whleh met at Washington In the spilng of vy,, and wrie rend by Senator Mdniunils, the; president of tne confer ence, ns it remarkable prophecy of the things for whose promotion the confer ence; was assembled. Dr. llnle mt on the platform as Ills pioplietic words were rend. He hns lived to see hit prophecy far on the road lo fulfilment. The world court Is a fncl. Treaties of of arbitration between the. fluted State-) and many other nations nie certainties of lin; near filtute. It is, indeed, disap pointing that we should not have the honor of being a party to the first gen eral urhllrntlon- treaty. Tlint honor be longs to llngland and franco. Hut nrbi tuition treaties between the various na tions are now multiplying rapidly; nnd In this movement the 1'nMcd States, whose course In connection with The Hague colifiieliee and The Hague tribu nal has in en so n ,'ile and clllelent, will not be inggaid. ll was half a l"zrn years beforo the Washington conference of lS?ii-it wus wlille the pan-Anicrican ctuigr'ss of l'OO was In si sslon-tl, it Dr. Hale published nn important article, th" Ilrst cle.irlv outlining Ills ptai of a permanent court of arbitration, with spceltlr refeienco lit the time to the n publics of North and South America. I remember Iteming one of our famous diplomats ilcchin at Mohonk. after Dr. Halo's memorable speech In 1W., that It was "not proiiabl. that for many yeais to come the governments would accept any such Ideal. " and another eminent diplomat declare the next yenr that "it alms too high for our day." Tlint was In lfW. Ill les-s thai a dozen years The Hague conference Had been held, Th" Hague conventions signed. The Hague; tribunal established, and the first ens befoie ll decided, -a case in which tlu 1'nlted States was ,i patty. Tills history Is wolth romombei Ing by the skeptics about progress. The virtue of Dr. Hale lias alwaj.s been his belief tlint sonn things in this wot Id run lie done as well as others, that In to lie done can ' nowndays than e' business is to i-' without any lull; e tilings which ought done morn quickly r before, and that our : about doing thce or much care as to how many .tears It will take. There 1 no man who love history and the past, loves celebrations of the rUht kind and of pioper propel Hon, better than Dr Hale; but there I no man so Impatient of the lashing of lead corpse's and wast ing power in com liming MghU already won. Ills famous motto is "Look I-'oi-tvnrd, not Backward." He knows th it several lights of ci far-rcnchlng char acter In the peine cause arc now won. The fight for international arbitration lias really been fought nnd won.
