Halph Douglass was iirrested Friday for steallm-a watch from Chailcs Elliott, an employi of the Strong Hardware com pnny. Douglass, under the questioning of Chief Itussell, at llrst denied all knowledge of the theft hut later broko uown and confessed to taking the watch from a desk near where Elliott Is em ployed. The boy, who Is -1 years of age, Is a graduate of the industrial school and the police have experienced trouble with him before. Aecimllng to his own story, I.e. entered the basement of the store and as he had previously si en Elliott place his watch In the disk he knew Just win-re to llnd it.

V.iiilain.m took a view direct I v opposite to that usually presented iu Vermont, but spoke as one who knew and dealt with the matter In an Intimate and frank manner. Prof. M. D. Chittenden introduced tho speaker n. the t.T-govcrnor and senator of Mississippi saving tb.it he was four years goxernor of the Stnte and had been elected lo the Fnlted Slates Senate by a popular file which cairled 78 of tho 7'J counties In his district. By far the inosl Interesting part of the aililn-ss was that which had to do with conditions In the South arising out of the negro tumble. lie took up, howevir. many other subjects, such ai. the recall of bulges, and said that hi no coiintiy was the Judicial bench allowed to exei else such power us In the Fnlted States. He feaied usurpation "f power h Judges ami In fact said that the history of their decisions during the past 40 years had hem a story ,.f usurpation of power. Tin constitution was iifver Intended to give on- small uiterle of men the right to oierthiow the will ot '.i'J,iiih,(iii ot people, and If there was any body who ought to be called and re-called and kicked off the face of the rattli it was the bench of tli- supreme court. The purchase of the Philippine Islands also came In for his criticism, as well as I the expense of maintaining and lncreas lug the army and navy. "Two-thirds of the money appropriated by Congress Is to pay for wars nlnadv fought or to pre pare for another one," declared Clovcrnor Vardanian. H was on the negro question, however, thnt th" speaker grew most eloquent and he gave his views fi arlessly to what he j-uppiisfd would he Inclined to be a bus tile audience. He began at the time of the war ami said that neither he nor any other southerner hated the negro, and that wiu n the war broko out every man mid boy of any size left their homes and their loved ones In the can- of the faith ful slaves. Alter the war he had worked side by ridu with them, during tho time v leu his family was sintering from re verses. He knew them In every phase of their lives, it w.us not until several yearB niter the war that any white woman was assaulted by the negroes', and this was the result of the training. At the present t'me tin home was left unguarded for a moment and no white woman was al lowed to walk a block through the most settled district In town without a white e.-coit. A lelgn of terror hung nvir thi entire soutlurn i oimtry, the re.-ult of the freedom afforded the neg-o an 1 m belief which has been Instilled Into hint that he Is tile equal of the white man. Senator Vardaman quoted Thomas Jef ferson, who foresaw the troubles that would ultimately arise trom the treedom of tho slaves, which he knew would sm.ie time come. lie i.-ad extracts which showed that Jefferson believed the qiuMioi. could never be solved by making the negro the social and political equal of the white man. Elr.'uts from Abraham Lincoln expressing the same opinion weie eiso read. The speaker then went Into thu physi cal dlfierences in the two races, referiitu; to the difference In tin- shapes of the skulls and to the matitn r In which the m.-ii of both races developed. During uirly childhood the mgio was fully n.-" relf-ivllant as the white child and 'ro gusiicd probably as rapidly until the ago i.f puberty, and then- the. difference in -gan. The white race went on and the Unci: remained stationary or , von went bad;. The black laces In Africa weie using chilis for wi-.ipiui-i and pursuing the canl tnllsttc habits In the same nunicr thu' they did live thoii'.anil yonv 'igo. The would not pri'KtV-s and ever' !' they weie liftid out of tin 'i.-i lvos for generation they went ' nek. Absorption was no solution of the ques tion for tli.) reason that the pile of find forbade il. As an Illustration he quoted from history showing the i xtlnctlim of tile wliltf races w hit h had mixed with the black in the Eiist. -lust that hu-s made the whlto race what it is to-day. It has maintained II-. Intigritv and ha.-. ruled the world. He then went exhaustively into tlm physical differences, "you have proba bly noticed an aroma arising from a colond gentleman In your vicinity and thought perhap" that It was the result of a draught," said the governor, "but the mllre Mississippi river couldn't get tlinr smell away. That keeps away the poisonous mosquito which carries tho tu'ihuia and yellow fever germ." H linn wint on to say that It was not until 1S7S that a colored man ever had the yellow fever In Mississippi ainl that in every case the negro had white blood in his veins. Even medicine doei not af fect the iifgro us It does the white man. The governor then compared th dif ference In conditions in Vermont, where thero were only S'J', negroes in lfV to Mississippi whero they constituted E.H pir cent, of the population. Whiskey and cocaine have combined to make de mons of them there. After painting with realism the conditions arising from this, the speaker went on to the remedies. He thought the tlrst of these should be the lepiallng of the 13th amendment to the constitution, which had never been Intended to apply to negroes. By shut ting off from them tho right to vote and to hold office. It would forever pre cludo their liopo of social and political equality. Senator Viirdaman's spcecli was full of witty epigrams and showed that he knew how to effect a clover piny on words. Ills allusion to Colonel Roose velt as a "political sixism" brought down the house. pilsotiiiient for life or ii less term.

FI lowing the dinner, served nt 0:30, tiie law yers retired to the roof garden shortly before nine o'clock, where President Max L. Powell acted as toasttua.itcr. The fol lowing olflcers were elected for the nom ine year; President, Senator L. C Mow er; vice-president, Mu.ior Robert Rob erts; secretary, Jo.'-epii T. St'iirns. treas urer, ClRiidu D.

Macomber. fni ted Slates Senator Vaiilamnn. v.'ho wus In thu city, was expect"! lo be present If hn finished his lecture at tho high school In time, but was still speaking there when the lawyers adjourned. Charles E. Allen was the llrst speaker of tho evening, and paid a full and high tribute to the late Judge A. A. Hull, em phasizing his clear, impartial and Inde pendent qualities on the bench, and cit ing the Sllns case, wherein Judge Hall differed with the majority of the suprrnn court, lint rrcflved -i general opinion con curring with his own. Mr. Powell delivered the president's address, discussing tin- practice of tho law yesterday and to-day. Describing the methods of trial in voguo years ago, when suits wire con tested with th" utmost ardor, he depre catiil needles'! rcort to legal ptoeess nnd romnunded that type ot lawyer that adjusts a client's affairs out of court and saves needless expense. In conclusion, he pleaded for fees com mensurate with tlie brains of tho pro- fe.ssicn. Fees, he mid, remain much tho same in sections of Vermont ns they were !u years past, nnd while engineers, for example, receive due financial re ward for their services, the legal pro fession. In respect of tho character of the men in its ranks, Is perhaps the poorest paid of any Iln of effott. Judge Taylor, now presiding in Chit tenden rounly court, said that the pres ent time Is one of unrest in court af f.iiis. The spirit of reform Is abroad. Much of this Is due to agitation, hut for It there must lie some real ground, some wrong tn bo righted, even If but an Imaginary one. "It occurs to Hi"," he observed, "that legislation as ,1 mcms of nieetlnp these ncc.is Is fraught with danger. Changes should come from bar and bench.
