Hand In copy by Momlay. Lewis P. Thaykh, Publisher. The Pitkin high license bill was ve ry much defeated. We presume the legislature voiced the general sentiment of the state in this matter. Mrs. Robert Owens of North Poult ney is settling one of the most difficult questions connected with our schools in the rural districts in her own quiet way, and no legislation can prevent her. She recently added four to the population of the globe at one effort. She has now a catalogue of twelve children nil under ten years of age. The legisla ture ought to have made an appropria tion. The committee of ways and means has reported the usual acts making pro vision for the support of the state gov ernment. They provide for a tax of 20 cents on a dollar, as against 1 Sets two years ago. The total amount ap propriated at this session is ,0f0,(.MU as against $S,'5"),(M)() two years ago. It would seem as though they had man aged to make everything cost a little more than at the Inst session. It is about time to apply the brakes or we shall ull be compelled to go West. There is some talk about Vermont being represented in the Cabinet. It has been some time since Vermont was honored in this way. Hon Jacob Col lamer, we believe, was the last member and be was postmaster-general. 15ut who can Vermont present? We can not heartily approve of any whose names have been mentioned. We are of the opinion that Mr. Harrison can select his own advisers as wisely and as well as any one can select them for him. Newspapers arc commenting a good deal upon the buying and selling of votes in the recent election. Whether or not this was practiced more than in former times does not clearly appear. It is clear that in recent years it has been practiced altogether too much for the purity of the ballot. How to stop the business is a question of some im portance.' The difficulty lies in making good proof against parties who are in volved in the transaction. But in clear cases fines might be imposed or parties disfranchised. Too mauy of the citi zens of this republic possess civil rights which they do not know bow to use, in consequence of which we can foresee dangers that grow out of political cor ruption. The Grand Isle bridge bill has pass ed the legislature and been approved by the Governor. This appropriates 820, 000 of the funds of the state to aid in building a bridge to connect two islands in Lake Champlain. This is good for the islands but rough on the state. It seems that this bill was voted down once, then the vote was rescinded and the bill passed the House by one ma jority. It went through the Senate and into the Governor's hands. After this an attempt was made to rescind again, but just too late, as t!ic Govern or had affixed his signature. It is sid that members voted for the bill merelv for the fun of it. Our impression is that a majority of the members of the present legislature are at Montpelier ' and likewise to profit by the mistakes just for the fun of voting away the mo-' of their enemies. Let men be appoint ncv of the people. So far as this par-' ed to office who are competent to di ticular bridge is concerned it mav be a J charge the duties of office. (Jive no good thing for interested parties, but ' places of tnis-t to corrupt and unscru- bridges are needed in all pnrts of the state. Towns here and the-e are com pelled to build and maintain bridges at great expense for the benefit of neigh boring towns and through travel, that would offer a plausible pretext for ask ing aid from the state. Should all such ask for aid it would bring the state to the verge of bankruptcy A large proportion of the bills bro't before the present legislature have been in some form raids upon the state treas ury. It is one of the most extravagant legislatures we have had for many a year. It has incubated and brought forth taxes. The appropriations al ready made will require twenty cents or more on a dollar, and hereafter a much larger per cent w ill be needed. This heavy state tax comes in very op portunely. Heavy frosts in the early fall nearly ruined the corn crop. Hun dreds of farmers who have only just been able by close economy to keep ev en with the world, and who cannot see clearly how they are to get through the winter without sinking into debt are confronted by an enormous state tax. Every cent that can be saved must go to pay forlJeniiington battle monuments and Grand Isle bridges and other mat ters that should not cost the state one cent. Talk about bureaus of immigra tion ! This legislature, by its extruv agance, has damaged the farming inter ests of the state more than a dozen bu reaus of immigration can repair. Any wise farmer with money to invest will be likely to keep clear of the state un til some of the jobs it has on hand are worked off, or some future legislature wipes out the work of this. The mem bers of the legislature go home on Wed nesday. Thursday the people of the state meet in their houses of worship to give thanks; in view of the deliverence wrought let them sing with heart and voice, "Believing we rejoice to see the curse remove. FUTURE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. After a rest of four years the Repub lican party is about to take up the ad ministration of the government once more. Its opportunity has come to it again. Whether or not it continues to administer the affairs of the govern ment depends upon the use it makes of its opportunity. The party was weak est atthecloscof the campaign of ISrt-l. It began to decline under the policy of Pres. Hayes a policy that seemed necessary but which culminated in a "solid South." Garfield was elected, the democrats not yet being able to control a sufficient numberof Northern states. The party made a mistake in the nominations of IS 84 and suffered its first defeat. The long sought op portunity of the democracy now came. But the result has show n (hat their zeal for power far surpassed their wis dom in administering power. Relying for a continuance in power upon main taining a "solid South," the party has directed its energies tow irds making itself "solid" with that section of the country. The result has been to make the administration offensively one-sided in its general trend. In fact, the de mocracy has lost its opportunity. This has come again to the republicans and what will they do? The party put its best men forward in this canvass. Had Blaine been nom inated we believe the party would have been defeated the second time. The sjune policy should be carried out in all appointments to office. The democrats have filled offices with unsuitable men. The bummers and the strikers have claimed an unusual share of the spoils. Their promises to reform and to purify were not carried out. The republicans made mistakes under former adminis trations, but as few perhaps as has ev er been made by any party, in our his tory. The opportunity is now given them to correct the errors of the past. pulous men. There are men enough thoroughly qualified and with clean re cords to fill all the offices within the gift of the administration. If not, go outside the ranks of the party. A clean democrat is better than a dirty republi can. There is a grand opportunity to make the most of the civil service. If the party wishes to commend itself to the people of the country without dis tinction of party let it give full force to what is understood by civil service prin ciples. There are few if any obstacles in the way of doing this. President Harrison made no promises before his election. He owes no political debts. It is not easy to say that he is under special obligations to any man or set of men when so many worked so hard to secure, first of all, the triumph of the party, and incidentally, his triumph as the chosen standard bearer ot tlie par- ty. Mr. Harrison, it seenm to us, lias the greatest freedom in the choice of a cabinet. He can select those, who, in his judgment, will serve the country best. And the same policy can be car ried down through all grades of cilices. Without casting any reflections upon the former policy of the party, we say that now is a good time to clean out all disreputable office-holders, all mere place-seekers, and give us a sen ice at home and abroad that shall be an hon- or to the country. The party has some pledges to fulfill. Its continuance in power depends upon the fidelity with which it does this. It must do justice to the Indian. The people expect of it that aflairs shnll be so conducted as to break up a solid South. This can be done by securing to colored voters their constitutional rights. Nothing was expected from the democratic p'irty in this direction. The republicans gave the negroes the ballot, now let them make it a genuine possession. The people of the North have borne with Southern injustice in this direction for a long time, but they i are growing more persistent in demand ing a remedy. The party coming into power should find a remedy. This is a part of i!s work in the time to come. It is the party of justice and equal lights. Let it prove itself true to its principles. If we mistake not it has some pledges to fulfill in the direction of giving the country a tariff that shall reduce the revenue and take off some of the burdens from the people and at the same time protect our industries. The way to do these things must be discovered and applied by those whom the people and the president call into places of trust. There are territories waiting to come iuto the Utiion as new states. A democratic Congress put them off because they were republican. Now they ought to come in, and their accessiou will greatly strengthen the party in power. With these states, and a wise policy faithfully carried out, the republicans can reasonably hope for a long lease of power. But the gov ernment must be administered not for any one party as against all others, but for the greatest good of the greatest number, without distinction of party. Serial Stories in Supplements.
