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. The session was seven days
longer than that of 180and cost ?70O0
Some large ap

heavily upon the resources of the state.

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.

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.
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.
