Y Walker of Rutland as president. When we take into account all the trouble that those railroads have in makin and abiding by agreements, it would seem as though this must be an exceed ingly diilicult position to fill. The se lection of Jlr. Walker shows great con fidence in his judgment and integrity. The last legislature put eider into the list of intoxicants. It is now just as wjeked to sell or give away cider as rum or whiskey. As the case now stands the farmers must sell their cider when iwclH or wait until it becomes vinegar. In many communities they are following up violations of the law pretty sharp, and it stands every man in hand to keep within the limits of the law in respect to these matters if In dues not wish to get into trouble. We have received a card from a gen tleman in Gaysville who says that A. W. Heard was born in Ludlow and that the Kuthuid Herald was righ'. We were misled by the fact that the Heard family became resident in Stockbridge when Alanson W. miict have been tiot very old. In these movable times it is difficult to tell where a man was born. And it was always thus.. Seven cities contended for recognition as the birth place of Homer. We touch our hat to the Herald at the present stage of the discussion. A circular from the State Superin tendent of Education, Mr. Palmer, an swers several questions that, have been troubling some of the citizens. He savs : Under the new law the office of tow n superintendent of schools is con tinued until the first tiny of July next All the usual duties of such officers will devolve upon them until that time. Statistics of the schools will be taken as usual at the end of the winter term. New registers will be supplied for the spring term, and the statistics of the spring term will be taken at its close. It is advisable to have school meeting in March to vote money to pay for the spring school, although the officers are not to be elected until the last Thurs day in June. The Insane Asylum at Brattleboro is crowded with patients, and the mana gers have decitled not to enlarge. This w ill make it necessary to build the As- ylum provided for by the last legisla ture. The committee in rhargc has decided to do this. Now the question of location has some significance.- The town of Randolph is centrally located, is fairly prosperous, easy of access, is healtbv, has no state buildings, and is in every way well suited as a location for the new asylum, with one exception, and that is.the people of the town would have little use tor it. This is so vital an objection Uit we think the asylum better go to St. Johnsbury, Burlington, or some of the other towns that are so loudlv clamoring for it. Was the three column article in last week's Montpelier Argus' upon the Louisiana lottery intended as a free pud' for that gigantic evil, or was it a paid advertisement and hence a direct violation of the laws of Vermont ? St. Johnsbury Caledonian. The llKiiAi.D was offered 10.00 to publish this article one time. The Wintlsor Journal calls attention to No. 144 of the session laws of 1888, relating to tie election of moderator of town meetings. Henceforth this officer is to be a permanent officer and preside at all town meetings that may be held during the year, and it is his duty to call to order the annual meeting held subsequent to his election and preside until his successor is chosen. In the absence of the moderator the meetiug is to be called to onder by one of the selectmen. The Journal takes the po sition that the coming March meeting must be called to order by one of the selectmen inasmuch, as there is no mod erator. Hut this does not seem clear to us. We d ) not see how the law can take effect until the town meeting is held aud it seems to us us though the town clerk must call the meeting to or tier as heretofore, and then a moderator must he chosen and made a permanent officer, thus giving the law full effect. It would bo well to have this matter settled so that business can be done in a legal maimer. No newspaper can settle it. It appears that Miss Walker, the Springfield school-teacher who commit ted suicide not long ago, was driven to desperation and temporary insanity by the insubordination of her pupils. She taught in the second grammar school and a teacher in flne of the other de partments told her pupils that the pu pils of that school were guilty of the murder of their teacher. A correspon- nt of the Reporter in that town does not think this statement correct, but he puts the blame upon the shoulders of the parents who allow their children to go to school and behave in a manner that would disgrace the heathen. He ives the parents a much needed scold ing for not training their children bet ter at hmne. What he says has gener al application. Hundreds of teachers are harassed and worried and half their efficiency destroyed by young cubs that have never been more than half licked into shape in the homes out of w hich they come. Our schools suffer greatly from the neglect of family discipline, and this is neglected because parents were tint disciplined as they ought to have been, and the primary source ot the trouble is, a disposition to shirk the doing of whatever is disagreeable. T.et us have order. DO WE WANT CANADA? This means, do we want all the re gion of country north of us? The north ern boundaries of Canada are indefinite. We could not leave out anything this side of the Pole. Senator Morrill has been discussing this question. There are two kinds of union talked about, a commercial union and a political uninu. The Senator takes strong ground a gainst the former. He regards any reciprocity treaty as out of the ques tion. He quotes Daniel Webster's say ing, "I hope I know the Constitution of my country better than to think a reciprocity treaty is constitutional. Mr. Morrill himself says, "No com mercial reciprocity treaty will erer be accepted by Canada that, does not a- bridgc the prosperity of the farming and husbaudry interests of the I'nited States." What they want is a better market for their farm products, and they would find it this side of the line. We cannot compete with them in many farm products, for, w ith :hem both la bor and land are cheaper. Besides, a reciprocity treaty with Canada would render it necessary to enter into just such kind of a treaty with all other na tions with whom we have treaty rela tions. This would be in effect the to tal abandonment of our protective poli cy. Moreover, a commercial union. instead of leading to a political union as some think, would stand in the way of such union, for Canada would secure certain commercial advantages under the former that she could not under the lutter. What shall be said of a political union? Is such a union desirable on the part of either or both countries. Mr. Morrill states some objections to such a union. The absorption of such a vast region as that which passes tin der the name of Canada, or more prop erly British North America, might ex cite the jealousy of foreign governments. It might make this nation unwieldy, and weaken rather than strengthen it. There is such a thing as nations becom ing so large as to fall into pieces. As a rule the people of Canada are poor, imimy of them are new settlers, and like most poor people they are disposed to have large families. Canada has a niggard soil and a rigorous climate. and the pressure of the population upon the means of subsistence is so close that we arc driven to find room for a large ov erplus, who tend to cheapen our labor, for the protection of which we have no tariff' regulations. The Provinces of Canada are such that we could not ea sily avoid making eight states ami then leave a large region that would full un der the head of "territory." This would create sixteen new senatoes who would be likely to have a common interest, and might interfere with national legislation by holding the balance of power. A bout one-quarter of the inhabitants are French Canadians, ignorant, unpro gressive, poor farmers, under priestly rule to a large extent, and while pos sessing some good qualities, are by no means a desirable addition to a self governing people. There is a strong influence holding the English portion of the population to the old country. Ma ny are descendants of the tories of our Revolutionary period, and they feel to wards us very much as their fathers did. Canada, like other English colo nies, offers a refuge to des'itute young er sons who must be provided for and thus enter the civil service. These va rious things create a feeling adverse to us, ami if the country should be annexed one generation at least would pass be fore the people would be thoroughly annexed. England has many millions of dollars invested in Canada that might give rise to litigation. Canada has a debt of three hundred millions of dol-1-irs that might not be agreeable for us to pay. There are sixty-four tribes or bands of Indians which bring a large expense, much larger in proportion than ours do to us. These are among the more positive objections. Then it may be said we do not need Cnuada. V e have vast regions of country of our own to fill up. AVo do not need their young men in our army, and as for revenue there would be loss rather than gain. The annexing of Canada would be some like taking a child to train and educate. The immediate outgo would be large with a prospect ol small returns at a remote period. In favor of annexation i' mav be suid, that such a union was contemplated by tlie founders of the re public. It was looked upon as an ev ent sure to come about at an early date. The nature of things seemed to them to require it. There is the same natu ral call now. There should be no di vided empire oa the great lakes. Such a union would tend to perpetuate our peace policy. It would add vast areas to our wheat fields. It would do away with all the machinery connected with the collection of customs along the bor der. It would settle the fisheries ques tion, for, although American fishermen miirht be driven to the wall, Canadian i I fishermen would be ours and w e should , have a resource from Whence to draw our seamen. The process of assimila tion with a majority of the people ought not to be difficult as they are from the same original stock. But Canada must seek us not we her, to make a union desirable.

Its growth in 1H88 was tinprecedenteo. in provin cial journalism, and its equipment is now superior to that of a:iy other p:ippr of its class in the country. It is one of the best provincial newspapers in America, and it is still improving. The Daily Free Press is doing more to promote the interests of Vermont readers, and is furnishing more reading matter of interest and value to sub scribers within its field than any rther pajH-r printed. As a news aud jtolitical journal for Vermont readers, the Daily Free Press is utiequaled. The Weekly Free Press is a great newspaper. Its 5(i columns are filled with the choicest reading. Its sub scription is only One Dollar a year, and in no department of business in the Stale of crmont can so much value be secured for so small a sum.
