The people of this country will find it necessary to "wake up," or they will be following in the rear of Japan on the track of civilization. The progress of that sunrise laud is something won derful. The Windsor Journal establishes its position that the next town meeting must be called to order by one of the selectmen, by reference to Section 29 of the Revised Law of 1880. This makes the matter clear to us. N. L. BovbEN, ) J. l Cleveland, Coin. C.M.Mann, j troll r f ROYAL tii'Si J We do not find anything specially interesting or new in regard to the cab inet except that Mr. New announces that he is to be u member. We have uo reliable data beyond his own word, the failure of this word to prove relia ble may result in a New disappointment. Goddard & Allan! bid off the mail route from Woodstock to liridgewater. They are to carry the mails between these two villages, a distance of six miles, twice a dny for four years, for the enormous sum of one cent. They probably expect lo carry a great many females for which they will charge a higher rule. There was a marked decrease in the fire losses of the eouutry during the lat ter part of lust year. The record was kept good through January, but since Fcbruury came in there have been some heavy looses. Increase of cold weath er may have had something to do with t'.iis. Insurance companies w ill rejoice when all llio old fire traps of the coun try have been swept out of the way. The maple sugar exchange, organiz ed last year is to take hold of the work this year with greater energy. The managers of it are fully confident that they can make a good thing for the farmers of the state. It takes time to gain experience, and the exchange en ters uon the work of a second year wilh renewed confidence. A trade mark has been adopted, and the idea seems to prevail that for the successful marketing of sugar or syrup it should be put up in smaller packages. Alpha Messer of Rochester is a leading spirit in this enterprise. His position in the state grange and his work in the inter, est of the farmers of the state is a guar antee that the Exchange means busi ness, and will help the farmers if the farmers will co-operate with it. mlM'aml limn..

There will be an article inserted in the warning for the annual March meeting in the town of Randolph to see if the town will change from the town system to the district system of schools. The schools, as we understand, have all been adjusted to the town system in relation to management aud finances. It will be worth w hile for the people of the town to take a second and even a third thought be.fure voting to make a riiunzu which may prove to be only temporary, as the new law is only in its experimental stage. The "white caps" have notified a young bachelor physician of Faii haven that he must marry in 14 days or leave town. The poor fellow does not know what to do. lie thinks it is a pretty short time in which to hunt up a wife fall in love with her, propose to her, with the risk of refusal, go through all the perils of courtship, prepare the wed ding garments, plan the bridal tour, etc. There is an unseemly haste about these modern regulators of society that docs not harmonize ith the established or der of things. There may be some boys' play about this business, but it is just as well to let the play lead off in some other direction. The republicans in Delaware are now coming to the surface and showing a hand in the administration of public af fairs. Havi'ig broken up the old polit ical regime they are going to try and civilize things a little. They have laid their hands upon the saloons and intend to hold them in check. These are a sort of democratic manufactories and it is just as well to turn oflT gome of the machinery. The republican party iu Delaware as well as in other parts of the country is the party of progress and social reform. As an instrument of social reform we hopo they will let the whipping post stand. This may be a relic of barbarism but wo have some barbarians in theso days, perpetuated from the ancient races, that need the discipline of just such a relic. After the republicans have handled Dclawaro a few vear the suite will hardly know itself. ..,rd In aalde-l.le. the n -- "f.,;,,,?. .,m, a. -ri. . he ol''H''" '',p,, pl lt.hed at Iv la the Herald i 'JZ'' Itethrl 111 OL '- ,i J ,H, P,,l.l-ella. .Hall I rtlH-e(nle.e. !,,;,. , , r.,,., of Hie . , ,).,-: to -hi I " o fc-aM .l Mnrr eJ.

The Department of Agriculture has been established and the present com missioner, Norman J. Colman, has been elevated to the rank of secretary This appointment, of course, is only temporary. Charles Loring of Mass. has been frequently mentioned for the Dosition ia the new cabinet. Warner a Miller of New York, has received fa vorable mention. Some think a prac tical farmer should have the place. We do think it makes much difference as to whether the appointee knowg the dif ference between a hen and a pullet or when the transition takes place, but his subordinates should know all about! these things and be prepared to enlight en the people. The new department is supposed to be a whole bureau of in formation for the instruction of thecom mun ties of farmers throughout the country. THE SUFFRAGE QUESTION. Not long ago reference was made in this journal to the restriction of the sufirage as a remedy for some of our political evils. In the Feb. Century Washington Gladden discusses, the same question, and makes some sug cestions regarding methods of restric tion. "Who shall vote?" is a question that should precede nil others in dis cussing the safeguards of tho ballot. Thi Constitution of the U. S. does not gcttle it ; the constitutions of the sever al states differ iu the qualifications pre scribed, and public opinion is notumtn- .... . . . . . ii... minus. 1 lie question is opei. me right to voto is not a natural right. It is a poli ical right The state confers it or withholds it as it seems best. To exercise it properly under a system of popular government education is need ed. In our generosity we have enfran chised multitudes of ignorant voters. Here lies our danger. It is difficult to take the ballot away from nny class al ter it has once been conferred. The methods of restriction suggested begin with education. Let each state and the United States put into their consti tutions the suggestion of the N. Hamp shire constitutional convention, viz : that no foreigner be allowed to vote until he can read the constitution of the country in the English language. Let the same rule apply to all as they come to mnnhood and claim the right to vote. While such a provision as this does not interfere with those already invested with tho right of guffrage, it prepares the way for a more intelligent class of voters. The ignorant, both among the whites and blacVg, native and foreign born, would be gradually eliminated Such a method as this could be carried out without serious commotion in the state, as its chief concern is with those who may hereafter become citizens of j the state. Another method of restrict' ing the suffrage is by withdrawing it from those who have been convicted of crime, and withholding it from such as have within a certain definite period previous to application been found guil ty of misdemeanors by the courts. As matter of fact, whatever may be said about the difficulty of taking the ballot away, it is withdrawn in most of the states for certain specified causes. All but three make disfranchisement the penalty for certain offenses. The states treat the matter very differently, how ever. What is. needed is uniformity of action, and this is the principle upon which they should act : "Let any mis demeanor that brings a man under the j censure of the criminal laws deprive him, for a season at least, of the guf frage." The idea here made promin ent is, that no man who wilfully breaks the laws should have any part in mak ing them. As it now is only some of the grosser crimes work disfranchise ment. The arrangement ought to be such that every offence of which a man is convicted shall operate to debar him of this right. The great majority of convictions are for what may be called misdemeanors as distinguished from felouies. One writer says that the state suffers more economical injury from the constant attacks of misdemean ant-. drunkards, brawlers and thieves than from the occasional assaults of felons. The former are the worst ene mies of society. - These arc the ones a gaingt whom disfranchisement should operate, and it should operate in pro portion to tho magnitude of the offence. It lias not been long since in one of our cities a number of men were taken by tho officers from the city prison and conducted to the pluee of registration that their names might appear upon the voting lists. This w as an outrage upon every free, intelligent, honest vo ter, t or the higher crimes complete disfranchisement should work, for the lesser crimes, shorter terms would be better, such as the court might deter mine from the nature of the offence. This is a practicable mutter. The clerks of tho courts can furnish lists of con victed persons to the boards of registra tion, and their names can be stricken off. S ill another method of restricting the suffrage is by taking it away from those who receive state aid. This is now doue in somo of the states. It would have a cleansing effect in the cit ies. It might work an injustice to a few worthy voters, but it would sift out the great majority of thos who are the tools and victims of heelers and bribers. It is upon the vicious und indolent poor that the demagogue plys his arts and his moil' y. The removal of the l ight of suffrage would take nil this material out of hand and not work so great a wrong against those upon whom falls the burden of government. This prin ciple of taking the ballot from the com ing ignorant, vicious, and paupers, es pecially tho vicious poor, would silt out a multitude of those who make up the rank and file of the dangerous classes. The quicker our legislators seek to put in operation some or nil of these meth ods or more efficient ones, the better will it be for the country. An import ant way of reforming tli3 ballot is to reform the voting list. These things demand earnest consideration. INTERESTING TO VZTERAN3. A camp of Song of Veterans has been organized in Pawlet.

Its growth in lhftS was unprecedented in provincial journalism, and its equipment is now superior to that of any other paper of its class iu the country. It is one ot the best provincial newspapers in A- niei ica, and 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 other paper printed.

At that price it should find readers in a majority of the homes of this Sta',e. Its well known departments news agricultural household society musical stories and full local reports entertain and please everybody, old, middle aged and young. If you know the i ree Press you cau testify to its quality ; if you do not know it, you ought to it will pay you. To try it is the best way to learn its quality, and now is a good time to try it.
