Tttla papir has more than 215.000 readers every week and ono cent a word will reaeh tho all. It Is hardly strange that tho people of France nrc adopting the great American Came. They havo becomo so engrossed In our young Americans In the flold that It 1b not to bo -wondered at that they be come enthusiastic fans when our boys ap pear on the diamond. News reports from Russia are hopeless ly confusing. First the Bolshevist are beaten, then they are sweeping all before them. The Russian press censor must be one of those men who at times are "too proud to fight," and then again who are helping to keep the world out of peace. Murders are becoming distressingly com mon In Vermont nt this particular time. It Is worth noting In this connection that Kngland believes tho persistence with which it detects and punishes murder Is accountable In no small degree for Its small per cent, of assassinations. If we aro Indifferent to the taking of life In our midst, wo aro putting a premium on mur der. Vermont must wake up In more ways than one. SBAIlCIIINn OUT BOMBERS During the war with Germany we were frequently moved by terrible stories of bomb outrages against non-combatanta In belligerent countries to thank God we were not as other people, the subjects of constant fear of unseen and unheralded agencies of death in all sorts of unex pected guises. During tho last few weeks wo havo suddenly been precipitated di rectly into precisely this same state of terror, despite the fact that we are wholly at peace with no declared enemy within three thousand miles of us. Moreover this monace comes to us In connection with the most ordinary and dependable of our branches of the pub lic service, tho United Slates malls. So far as possibilities are concerned the In tended victims might as well be ourselves as those to whom packages of powerful explosives weiv vent. If your enemy so desires, there is nothing to prevent him from fixing up a bombing machine, like those others. The remarkable thing about all this is that the sending of those bombing ma chines through the mails strikes a blow at tho pending of merchandise through tho postofllce. Wo are all on guard as It were against Infernal machines. Under these circumstances It is grat ifying to know that tho United States authorities are not only using every avail able means to discover the perpetrators of thlB foul crime, but they are also enlisting the co-operation of the Cana dian government for tho purpose of fer reting out these enemies of the entire public. That these criminals are of for eign sympathies is evident from the fact that those to whom Infernal missiles were sent were lnrgely Instrumental In tho framing or enforcing of the esplon ago act during the war. Multiplying evidences of a systematic campaign of terrorism, as shown by bomb outrages, demonstrations against the gov ernment for punishing men Who openly fought the active prosecution of the war, and tho moro insidious efforts of the so called radical intellectuals have raised a general demand for speclnl congressional legislation for greater public safety. It Is believed that some such meas ure. Intended to supplant the espionage act, which becomes inoperatrvo with the tlgnlng of the peace, will be Introduced nt the next session of Congress, whose members are aroused by the revelations now brourht to light with tho finding of nearly a scoro of infernal machines in tho United States malls, addressed to men or national prominence. Members of Congress, according to Washington des patches, feel that such acts of terrorism aro usually inspired in some weak or criminal minds by a continued campaign waged by men who manage to keep out of Jail. Rills bearing directly on the activi ties of agitators were under considera tion in the last sosHion of Congress, Thoy provided for the deportation of persons Interned and convicted of crimes ngalnst the government. Another bill provides for tho deportation of persona who had taken out their first naturaliza tion papora and rofusod to comply with tho solootivo draft act. J. Mitchell Pal mer, attorney-general, has had his as sistants who were charged with the pros ecution ot thesa cases prepare recom mendations for new legislation which It Is believed will effectively take the place of the espionage act. In the meantime 'most right-thinking Americans will demand that strenuous measures bo adopted to put a stop to the Hprcnd of sentiments leading up to evil acts of this character.

EDMUNDS The editor of the Free Press is fortunate in having dis covered in some old papers a manuscript, which evidently pass ed through he hands of the late George Grenville Benedict decades ago, and after being labeled by the latter was filed away for use in connection with a future sketch of the late United States Senator George F. Edmunds. These notes are written in a hand which helps to show that they came from Washington and were furnished by one intimately ac quainted with the chief acts of the long public career of Mr. Edmunds. The data is of so great historical interest and value that we reproduce the same entire, with only slight modifica tion. Our readers will note the bearing of the acts relative to telephone and postal service, railway control and interna tional developments, and other measures on issues before the people of this country to-day. The list is prefaced by the words, "Some of the important measures with which he has been specially connected," and it reads as follows : The bill to admit Colorado as a State in 1866 with a con stitution restricting suffrage to whites. He opposed it in a speech on April 25, or 26, 1866, and Mr. Sumner publicly in the Senate thanked him for it. He was made chairman of the joint committee on re trenchment in which he investigated and reported on all the issues of government bonds, and paper money, which report finally settled the question of the alleged frauds and over-issues of the government during the rebellion. From the same committee he reported and passed the tenure of office law. In 1867 he was made a member of the committee on the judiciary. From that time he was intimately concerned in framing and passing the reconstruction acts, and their amend ments, which came from that committee. When the public credit began to be questioned and the right to pay. all government debts in paper was asserted he in November, 1867, introduced a joint resolution pledging the public faith to the payment of the debt in coin and supported it in a speech. The substance and almost the form of these resolutions was made law immediately after General Grant became president, and was (I think) the first bill signed by him. The work of his committee on retrenchment led to getting paid into the treasury about ten millions of dollars, the pro ceeds of captured and abandoned property, which was being rapidly returned to rebel claimants under Johnson's pardons. He was a member of the select committee of the Sen ate to provide for conducting the proceedings on the impeach ment of President Johnson. At Grant's first election he took an active and successful part in excluding the electoral votes of the late rebel States not yet readmitted. He introduced and got passed the bill to stop paying the late owners of slaves who had enlisted or been drafted in our army during the rebellion, which payments were going on un der an old law. He was the first to propose and urge that no more money be paid from the treasury to the subsidized railroads for trans portation, etc., until they repaid what the treasury had paid out for interest on the bonds, and he persisted in the effort to bring them to pretect the United States until the ' sinking fund act was passed, which the companies have been compelled to obey. He reported and had charge of and carried through the great civil and political rights act of May 31, 1870, which now forms the principal body of the law on that subject. He did the same in respect of the act to enforce the 14th amendment of April, 1871. He introduced and the Senate adopted the resolution which stopped the further issue of bonds or land certificates to the Unoin Pacific railroad in respect of branches and connections with the main line. He introduced and reported and managed the bill to dis tribute the British Geneva award of $15,500,000 among the proper claimants and excluding the insurance corporations which had made profits on war premiums. He was active in causing the Senate to declare before the election of 1876 that the joint rules, which gave each House a right to reject the vote of any State, and so, if in force, gave the democratic House of Representatives a full negative con trol, were no longer in force. He reported from the select committee, of which he was chairman, the electoral count bill under which Mr. Hayes was practically installed as president. He introduced the resolution adopted by the Senate pro viding for putting in the appropriation bill means of hastening the1 disposition of pension cases in the war department, and again for providing for expediting the disposition of pension cases appealed from the decision of the committee to the sec retary of the interior. In the time when the democrats had both Houses of Con gress he vigorously resisted the measures tacked by them on appropriation bills, repealing much of the republican legislation for the protection of equal rights and fair voting in the South, and the president vetoed the bill. The newspaper at the time reported the saying of the veto message, that it was the voice of Jacob Edmunds, that the hand was the hand of Esau Hayes. He offered and the Senate adopted in executive session the resolution calling on the president to terminate the last fish eries and reciprocity treaty with Great Britain. The Senate took off the injunction of secrecy from the proceedings and did Mr. E. the unique honor of voting a request that he write out the extemporaneous speech he had delivered on the occasion, to be printed and made public in the Record. He has introduced and supported the postal telegraph bill (which in spite of corporate opposition will yet become a law) which is designed to give the people cheap telegraph facilities in connection with the post offices. He passed and introduced the bill which has twice or three times passed the Senate and is again pending, providing the means of counting the votes and ascertaining the result of presidential elections. , , He formed and introduced the bill which has, though strongly opposed by claimants of vast grants, twice passed the Senate and is again pending, providing for settling all ques tions concerning all Mexican and Spanish land grants in a safe and judicial way so as to make the small settlers under the public land laws safe in their possessions. He has brought forward and procured the passage of the well-known Mormon polygamy laws under which at last real progress has for the first time been made toward the suppres sion of polygamy in this country. He has reported the bill which has twice passed the Sen ate and is still pending in the House of Representatives for inv specting and facilitating the exportation of the meat products' of the United States and with the important provision enabling the president to defend our people against unjust action to ward our products by other countries. It has been stated in reputable public newspapers and doubtless with truth, that Mr. E. was the leading supporter of the treaty negotiated by President Arthur with the repub lic of Nicaragua by which the United States would get the control of the only practicable ship canal between the two great oceans and so really dominate the commerce of the world. The public papers say that Mr. E. has again brought the subject to the attention of the Senate by a resolution reported by him from the committee of foreign relations, and also a proposition looking to the obtaining of a naval and maritime station in the Sandwich Islands, making a halfway harbor for our flag in the middle of the Pacific ocean. He was an active supporter of the bill which passed the Senate regulating interstate railway transportation and bring ing these great corporations under the control of laws, and he offered and the Senate adopted, the provisions in it securing summary relief to shippers of freight against unjust treat ment by the railways, and authorizing tho judges to compel immediate obedience, whether the corporations appealed or not.
