It is the only one of the kind in the state. We are glad to note these signs of prosperity. The Free Press gives a summary of the cost of the present legislature to the state of Vermont. There are 243 towns in the state. Three of these had no representatives, Bradford, Georgia and Canaan. Two towns, Proctor and West Rutland, were represented for the first time. The session lasted 57 days, which is not far from the average time of a legislative session in this state. Reckoning the per diem of the mem bers, mileage, clerk and pHge hire and the session cost the state about $1000 per day.

SAMPLE PRICE L The gentleman from Waterbury, the Hon. F.dvvin F. Palmer, was elected state superintendent of schools under the new law. Inasmuch as he was op posed to the bill and worked against its passage his election w ould indicate that the sentiment in favor of the measure was not very strong among the mem bers. Mr. Palmer is highly spoken of ami has made a good record in the ses sion just closed. He is a lawyer in good standing, has been supreme court reporter for the last eight years, is a man of liberal education, scholarly tastes, and is said to be a good speak er. His appointment to this position meets with general approval. The on ly objectionable feature that we can discover is the fact that Mr. Palmer is a member of the legislature and some of the state offices ought to be given to men who are so unfortunate as not to be elected to that honorable bodv. l'ub price, Agt AiNirii-.io AsHiulturlst, r ielil.

Some of the Southern leaders inti mate that if the North insists upon a free ballot and a fair count there will be trouble ahead. That is just what the North should insist upon so far as federal elections are concerned, even if it las necessary to disfranchise the en tire section. We do not say that if th negro did not already have the right of suffrage we should be in fivor of grant ing it except upon certain conditions, and those conditions should apply to black and w hite alike. But as it is we believe the general government should protect every man in all the rights con ferred upon him. Just so long as the colored vote of the South is suppressed in anv way an injustice is done to the North. That injustice has been inflict ed for a long time, but it is about time to put a stop to it. The South can bluster, but it should be compelled to submit to a course that is fair and honorable. There were introduced into the Sen ate and House at the session just clos ed, 648 acts. Abou: 330 of the bills introduced became laws. Many that were introduced were deservedly killed. Some of them deserved a better fate. The following are the more important measures that became law : The school bill presented by the school commission ers created under the Marsh act of '8t. w ith some modifications and amend ments, the temperance law was so far changed as to leave it optional with the There is no doubt but that the dem ocrats are doing their best to steal the next House of Representatives. They have robbed West Virginia of a duly elected Republican representative.- In Louisiana they are trying to do the same thing. In North Carolina, in a district that is notoriously republican, they have cheated a member out of his seat. Certificates have been granted to half a dozen defeated democrats. These are facts. No one denies them They are a part of the plot to keep the popular branch of Congress in the pos session of the democracy. But will the republicans submit to it ? We say it is the democratic party that is doing these things, but it is really the South and Northern democrats acquiesce. It is a part of the old feud, a manifestation of the rule or ruin spirit that has al ways prevailed in that section. It lias plunged the country into one ruinous war and if it is still pursued it may make farther trouble. The republican party will tolerate a great deal of in justice but some day it w ill strike back and the blow will be felt. We do not believe the people of this country are going to sutler the government to be run by political thieves and assassins right along continuously. And it is about time for a change. And there are signs that a change will be brought about before long. peaceably if it can be, by war if necessary. There is no ques tion but that there is danger ahead. and how to get through it or around it is a matter for the incoming administration to determine. STATE EXPENSES. The first thing to do is to see that a state is governed well. Life and prop erty must be made secure and such con ditions obtained as shall insure to each citizen a fair amount of enjoyment. Just as little authority should be exer cised over each citizen as is compatible with the well-being of all the citizens. It should not he required of the state that it help those who are able to help themselves. The granting of aid tends to foster a feeling of dependence. There should be no legislation in favor of one body of men that may not with fcqual propriety be granted to every body of men. The weak spot in communism is the tendency of some to live at the expense of others. There are always those in the state scheming to create fat jobs, and then get hold of them for their own benefit, often under the pre text of seeking the good of the state.but really that they nuty live at the expense of others. The state is not a parent, but a police officer. Its special func tion is to protect, but at the same time it should so protect and so encourage self-reliance and self-control as to re duce the necessity of protection to its minimum. The state should be gov erned with as little expense to the citi zen as is possible to secure the object of government. There are always some who are vicious and must be re strained. True policy demands that they be made to meet the cost of their own restraint as far as possible, and the state make good the deficiency. The tendency in modern states is to soften the tigors of restraint .take away the fear of the results of yiciousness and increase rather than diminish pub lic burdens. There are some unfortu nate ones, which, as a measure of hu manity must be provided for. But ev en here, it should be required of those who are responsible, where responsibil ity can be determined, that they bear the burden and the state do no more than is necessary for its own protection. be educated, but he should not be edu cated at the expense of the state only up to that point tliat the good of the state demands. Experience has much to do in determining where that point can be found. All beyond this accrues to the benefit of some at the expense of all, which is not wise legislation. In regard to state expenses, and we speak of our own state, there is a ten dency towards extravagance. A few years ago our financial condition was such that it was thought that a corpor ation tax could be raised ami obviate the necessity of laying a direct tax up on the towns or the citizens. This did very well for a year or two. Then the expenses were made to outrun the Mi- conie from this source. A light tax was levied, which, it was iiiiiniated, would tide us over a pinch and be only temporary. But it is evident that this tax has come to stay, and not only that it has in it the elements of growth. Beginning small it has almost reached the proportions of a war tax. And there is room for indefinite expansion, provided the people willpermi' it. Two years ago it was twelve cents on a dol lar, now it has grown to twenty. A difference ot eight per cent, may be re garded as light, but it costs the town of Randolph, for instance, the price of an average farm. ' It seems as though each legislature not only found it neces sary to continue with an increasing a mount of support the institutions called into being hy its predecessor, it must create some new ones so as to pile np the expense. And when an institution has once fastened itself upon the state treasury it is next to impossible to choke it off. Besides there are always some odd jobs, like a monument or a bridge that must be attended to. The legisla ture that has just adjourned has out stripped preceding ones in the line of extravagance. It appears to have been run by a lobby, and the governor who should have checked extravagant ten dencies interposed no hindrances. It is singular that this session should have cost the state 510,000 more than the last. We are prone to believe that the supervision of schools under the new school bill might have been made as cheap as under the old without detri ment to any one. But no, ? 10,000 must be added to the public burden in this direction. And so the spirit of extravagance has run riot until the state has been set back nearly half-a-million dollars. The members of this legislature do not seem to have consult ed the feelings or wishes of their con stituents or they miht have known that it was a bad time for foolish out lav. The people hoped tor economy, but they have seen their monev jjo for j jobs. They supposed they had sent men to the legislature, but they find that a good deal of the work done is just what might have been expected of boys. It is about time for the peo ple to think about protecting themselves against their representatives. We ap prehend that the day is not distant when there will be a change in the di rection of public affairs. Club Offers !! Are These Oilers So Plain That 11! Can Understand Them?
