Tiie Kecno Republican lias licen in dicted for publishing lottery advertise ments. 1 lie 6anie law exists here as in New Hampshire, nnd it may be well enough for some of our state papers to look out ami not get "cinched." Judge Venzcy is talked about as the man to put into Col. Walker's place on the luter-stiito Ruilroad Connnission. Whatever may bo said about the Com mission thus re-constructed, the bench of Vermont would lose au excellent judge. New Hampshire has taken a wise step in substituting bienniul for annual sessions of the legislature, and in hiring its legislators to do their work by the job and not by the day. They will probably earn about ns much of their money under one system us the other, but under the Litter they will probably do the work quicker, and the state will not bo kept in peril so long. Vt. monument at Gettysburg is to be dedicated the first week iu September. There will be a large gathering of the Vermont veterans on that occasion. It is probable that cheap excursion rates will be urrangetl from all points in the state, and that all who care to go cuti be accommodated. Karl Gerhardt is at work on a clay model of the statue, which is to be cast in bronze when com pleted. The monument will be a cred it to the state and to those who design ed it. Who is to be the orator on that occasion? Why'iiotCol. A. F. Walker? dipt. Herbert Heeclicr, a son of the hite Henry Ward Dceclier, who, a few years ago, was collector of customs at Port Townshend, ou Puget Sound, and who has recently been special ageut of the treasury department in that region, has been dismissed from the service of the government. He w.s connected in some way with opium smuggling oper ations, and fell into disgrace, but has been buoyed up by his friends for some time past. The present action amouuts to dismissal in disgrace. This is a sec ond recent instance where the sons of great men have proved unworthy of their sires. Col. Walker has goue to Chicago and assumed his duties as president of the railroad presidents, in other words, as chairman of the Great Inter-State Railroad Association. From a business point of view it may be regarded as the highest place in the country, if not iu the world, that a man can be called to fill. The announcement is already made that a better understanding has come about between the roads of the Northwest. For the purposes for which the office was created we believe it has been filled by a worthy and capable man. Mr. Walker has hitherto prov ed himself qualified to perform all du ties required of hiiri. Dakota is now suffering from anoth er terrible disaster. Fires have been sweeping over large tracts of country, burning up fences, trees, the homes of settlers, some of the smaller village set tlement, stock, grain and provisions, and in some instances, human beings. It is not easy to estimata the amount of loss incurred, but there will be quite a set-back to the prosperity of the corn- ing season. t hardly seemed possible that there could bo such wide-spread devastation, but the flames broke away from all control. As the country be comes more fully settled, the possibility of such di.susters will be less and less. The principle of making use of the ballot in the selection of postmaster lias been carried out iu Winchester, Mass. Henry Cabot Lodge, M. C, was the prime mover in this business. The people elected the man they wanted for postmaster and Congressman Iodge took the matter in hand and secured the nppoiutme.ut of the man chosen. This is Grout's plan and several towns iu this state have acted upon it. Mr. Grout's bill may become law if the peo ple generally will bring in the custom. This, of course, they liuve a perfect right to do. There is no office, in a community in which more people have a greater interest than the postoflicc, and it is no more than right that they should have n voice in the choice of its presiding genius. There must have been a largo am ount of sickness iu Rutland county the past year. The Herald publishes esti mates that indicate that not less than three gallons each for every man, wo man and child in the county has been sold the past year. This amount is re garded us too small, five gallons would be nearer the truth. And the House of Correction is close at hand. There are shameful defects in the administra tion of law, and this has stirred up a feeling among the people of the town of Rutland that something ought to be done, und last Sunday they tried to do it by putting in force old Sunday laws. All traders were notified that they must not open and they did not. Next Sun day they propose to shut up livery sta bles and stop the sule of Sunday pa pers. It they will only make oi tins something more than a spasm and put into office men who will execute the law and not look out too sharp for their own private interests, some good may come out of this movement. THE MONROE DOCTRINE. Possible complications growing out of the Panama canal business and the Samoan difficulties, have given rise in diplomatic circles to some talk about the Monroe doctrine. People general ly have vague ideas of its meaning. To give a better idea of its meaning, Mr. II. C. l?nnts writes in the April Forum concerning the scope of this doctrine. We wish to call nttcntiou to some of the statements and explanations that he makes. The doctrine found emphatic expression in the last national Repub lican platform, ami has been referred to iu Congress, and frequently spoken of in the press and yet there arc misap prehensions regarding it. In his mes sage of Uec. 2nd, 1823, President Mon roe says : "The occasion has been judged pro per for asserting as a principle m which the rights and interests of the United States are involved, that the American continents, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintained, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future coloni zation by any European power." This statement grew out of the fact that both Russia and Great Rrilain con tended that the territory lying to the north of the l?iSted States should be regarded as open to discovery and col onization. Some have put more mean- inr iuto these words of President Stun- roe than they wen intended to convey Mr. Adams, who was then secretary of state gives some light upon the true meaning of this statement when he says : "The American continents hence forth will no longer be subject to colo nization ; occupied by civilized nations they will be accessible to Europeans and each other on that footing alone." As this was written before the mes- snge it seems quite probable that Mr. Adam9 was the author of the declara tion in the messaga. Thus Mr. Adams may be, after all, the author, or at the least, the first enunciator, in our histo ry, of what is known, as the Monroe doctrine. But this doctrine is based on j sound principles of international law. It was originally intended ns a dclara tion against the pretensions of Russia and Great Britain. This is what Pres. Woolsey says in his workou "Interna tional Law :" "The territory of a nation, or that portion of the eurth over which it exer cises the rights of sovereignty, may have begun to pertain to it in a variety of ways: 1. From occuuation of laud which was before vacant,n!id from pre scription, public and uninterrupted. 2. From occupation by -. colonies or other ineo-porutioti of land before occupied. 3. From conquest accepted as a fact and at length ending iu prescriptive right. 4. r rom purchase or from gift. At the time Pres. Munroe made his declaration there was not a foot of laud on this continent that was not dominat ed over by civilized nations by vii tua of aequisilion under some one of thu methods mentioned above. The point is this as more clearly stated elsewhere by Dr. Woolsey : While the United States cannot under the law of nations prevent other nations from gaining ter ritory and planting colonies when no danger would result to it on ue-oiint of proximity it can resist, under the law of nations, attempts of foreign nations to alter the constitutions of states on this side of tlm water that have boeu established. Lewis Cass, iu addressing the United States Senate ou the 28tU of Jan. 1856 says : "To colonization by purchase, treaty, or lawful conquest, the Monroe doctrine was not intended to apply, however it may have come tobecoiisideredin thesti latter days." Mr. Polk's administration adhered steadfastly to the Monroe doctrine, as appears iu the controversies about thu north-western boundary. Uut in Mr Cass' speech referred to above there is an explanation of the causes wbich let? to the enunciation of the Munroe doc trine. The leading countries of the continent of Europe had formed a Holy Alliance.'" England did not enter into this Alliance, ueither did her leading statesman, Mr. Canning, sanction tho scheme of the congress of European sovereigns at Aix. la Chapellc in 1815, to assist Spain in bringing into subjec tion tho revolted Spanish colonics in America, uud he expressed a willing ness to join with Mr. Rush our ambas sador to England, iu a protest against any interference on the part of oUie.r powers in the controversy between Spain and her revolted colonies. It was in the prospect or possibility of armed intervention in the independent states of this continent that President Munroe declared in 1823 that "we should consider any attempts on their part, (i. c., of the allied powers) to ex tend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety." It is clear from some of the speeches made iu Congress and ut terances elsewhere that people are dis posed to attach too much meaning to the doctrine. It grows out of the prin ciple of self-preservation and extends no farther. Besides, it was never in tended U become a fundamental or tra-diiiou.-try policy of the government It originated to -peel a particular juncture of events, and when the cireuimt 'uees that gave rise to it changed it ceased to be of any effect.
