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

ture ought to have made an appropria
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

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once, then the vote was rescinded and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
FUTURE OF THE REPUBLICAN
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.
