D AND NEWS THE LEADING LOCAL NEWSPAPER IN EASTERN AND CENTRAL VERMONT VOL XVI. " WEST RANDOLPH, VT., ()( TOIU- R, 4, 1888. NO. 1-780. EDITORIAL NOTES. It i jpears "I"' investigation that tlie representative-elect from Georgia is ineligible to tlial office, being u f ' reiiru- cr. 'J'lie eonsetpience is that the town of (leorgia must go unrepresented the coming two years. This seems like a foolish blunder on the part of somebody. Enough mistakes of a similar kinil have happened to lead to greater caution on the part of interested parties. The utter disregard of the principles ot civil service liv the democrats is re ceiving fresh illustration in the removal of a large number of the most efficient postal clerks on New England routes. The reason, of course, is for the pur pose of making room for the servants of the parly, and the result is an inef ficient service. l!epiiblieaiiism is crime in the times that me upon u l!ut ve look for something better vv he the Tittlebat Tituiotiscs of the present have become things of the past. r I ' tcroiigI;!y demise and purify garments withour injury, tlay 1 nu t be boiled to dissolve tl:e oily exudations of the skin, and ii o en the dirt, when both can easily be removed by using a mild but effective soap like the "Ivory," 99 -fVj (pure). Washing Compounds and Soap recommended to be used in cold water, to save labor, fuel, etc., are highly chcmicalled, and are so strong that tiiey attack and destroy any fabric they arc used on. A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory' " they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lick the peculiar and remarkable qualifies of the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it. Copjriglit 1S86, by Procter 4 Gamble. Printed Kvrry Wrdnrailny Kvtulng at tt'KNT H YOOI.I'II, VT. TWO EDITIONS.

We have a communication from a man in Stockbridge in reference to what we said about road repairs. We tlid not intend to approv e of the old sys tem entirely, but we think some fea tures of it might be retained to adv an tage, and especially that feature which gives men an opportunity to work out their own tax when they desire to do so. Some men, in these times find it much harder to pay money than work. This should be rendered under careful surveillance ami fraud prevented. We think it wind 1 secure prompter action and better winter roads. There are some roads in some towns that couldn't easily be worse under any system For ius.aufc, (lie road from Cobb bridge to the toji of Sliclden hill is a di.-grace to our civilization through at least one ipiarter of the year, or such it has been in the past. Perhaps a remedy has been applied. If our correspondent can con Irive a law that will compel his town or any other party to put that piece of highway into a wholesome condition and keep it so through the entire year he will deserve the thanks of a long suffering public. The following questions have been sent us by an esteemed correspondent which we will answer with pleasure us best we can : 1 Is perjury a State Prison offence and how long is the term of imprison ment ? It is. Time l!t years or less, ami a fine of $1000 or less. '2. Does the crime of perjury outlaw and in what time.? It outlaws in three years from the time the offence was committed. .'1 Would it be considered perjury for a man to leave out a thousand dollars in giving in his list or making out his Inventory.'1 l es, if done intentionally. 4 Has any one in this state ever been imprisoned for the same? Not that we can discover. 5 What isthe fine anil for what num ber of years back would a man be lia ble to prosecution ? The same as un der the general law for perjury. Are the Inventories destroyed ev rv three years? Thev cannot bo made the basis for legal action after three years. They are legally destroyed. Whether burned or not is optional w ith the tow n clerk.

For this simple rea son : the Sugar trust, the Whiskey trust, the Standard Oil trust, the An thracite trust, all contain democrats who are helping on this campaign with their money. It is well enough for these Congressional orators of the dem ocratic party to go through the country and stir up the poor democrats against trusts and through this against the tar iff, but in the very spot where their ac tion would mean something they will uot lift a finger and seemingly do not care to, because. forooth, the rich men of the pai'tv might lie disturbed. This j ency of the democratic party. The one hundred ami nineteenth reg ular session of the Vermont legislature conv ened yesterday at Montpelier and oinmeuced the preliminaries of gener al legislation. In our younger days this was what was known as"Klection Day," ami was an important event of the year. Times have changed. Oili er amusements take the attention of the people, and the legislature sits and rises anil scarcely a ripple is produced ujKin the surface of afliiirs. Our sys tem of biennial sessions has had a ten- lency to unve t lie loiiuer Mgiiilteuuee of this day out of the popular mind. Resides, people do not have the respect for legislative bodies that was once felt Our legislators are responsible for this, in part, at least. They have too often conducted themselves in such a manner while engaged in the transaction of pub lic business as to detract from their own dignity. They cannot expect greater respect will be shown them than they show for themselves and the office they till. When members seek to turn the legislature into a partisan political are na, they destroy respect for themselves. When members spend days in wrang ling over unimportant matters, increas ing the cost of legislation to the state, there grows up a feeling that they re gard the organization as made for their benefit, instead of themselves as being sent into it to benefit the state through it, and there has been so much of this sort of business in times past that peo ple are more anxious to see their rep resentatives go home than to see them assemble. It seems to us as though but very little need be done in the way of general legislation. The appropria-! tion of the necessary sums of money to carry on the state government and con tinue our state institutions in full ac tivity is about the only thing that need u done, and is probably about the on i" thing that w ill be don and give gen eral satisfaction. We speak in this way because in years past legislation touching matters that ought to be thor oughly overhauled has been so unsatis factory. If some changes called for, ami contemplated, cannot be made rad ical better leave things us they are. Our road laws need an entire rev ision. If only some unimportant- changes are to be made better leave them as they are. It is .rue a portion ot them are comparatively useless. but this fact does not u fleet the course of nature. We have rain anil sunshine and early frosts and potato bugs w ith just as unvarying regularity as though there were 110 roads in existence. Our school law needs revision, but if no more can be done for it than has been done at more recent sessions, better let it alone. Children will be born and grow up w is er than their fathers even if there is no school law. P.ut, really, something ought to be done with the school law And this is looked forward to ns an important work of the present session. It is conlideiitly expected that the com mission appointed at the last session will bring forw ard something in its re port that w ill serve as a basis upon which to build up a school system as fully advanced as any in the country We do not need to multiply our higher institutions of learning, or legislate very much in regard to them. Those w ho desire, and whose circumstances w ill permit them to obtain a higher ed ucation cau'Hake care of themselves I5ut as a matter of self-protection the state must give all its prospective citi ens a certain amount ot education and this it must do through the common schools. How to effect the most with the least outlay, is the problem to solve. Some are calling for more legislation upon railroad matters, but we cannot discover that there are any great wrongs to be righted in connection with our railroad system. The tendency of leg islation here as elsew here is to multiply ollices. create commissions and thereby increase pulilie luinlens. Ilns is a farming state, finite a proportion of the public burdens are borne bv farm- ers. 1 he past season lias not been a good one for the farming interest. We think it safe to say that early frost dam aged it to the extent of millions of dollars CHELSEA AROUND TOWN.

Large sums of money must go out of the state to pay for Western grain, that otherwise might have been kept within the state. AVe hope the legislature will keep expenses down. Let legislation be carried ou on business principles and leave sentiment out of the reckoning. Nothing can be more satisfactory to the public than to have short speeches, close committee work, no log-rolling, an honest endeavor to do what is for the public good, as little junketing as possible, and an early re turn to home scenes. There are no exciting issues before the people, there is no senator to be chosen, general af fairs are about in ihe same condition as when the last legislature adjourned. There should be a sharp lookout kept for private bills, for bills that seem to he for the public good on the face of them, but conceal some personal inter est. We hope each member will act for himself, avoiding combinations that further private schemes. The people will watch legislative doing with interest. Malaria And Dyspepsia. It may not lie generally known, jet it is a stubborn fact that thousands think themselves the subject of Uysjtepsia, while they are guttering from Malaria. In fact Malaria docs produce all the symptoms of Dyspepsia, the bud taste, the coated tona-ue. the poor or fastidious appetite, the unret resiling sleep, the ir resolution and mental depression, the backache or pains in the limbs and bones, all may be the result of bad air malarbi. Thousands sutler from it all fl yer the country, and drug themselves withnills, nostrums or iiiiiiiine to no purpose, often making themselves worse from the drug than they were from the disease.
