EDITORIAL NOTES. Who wrote Chauncey Depew's cen tenniul oration ? will be one of the prob lems of the future. It was unfortunate that he should seek any assistance from a crank. The first formal steps towards milk ing Dakota into States were taken the other day. Both North and South Da kota Rre overwhelmingly republican, but by agreement one-third of the dele gates chosen were democrats. The vote was light but almost unanimously in favor of the constitution. In Moa tana party lines were more closely drawn. The conventions meet on the 4th of July. Every few days some one is appoint ed to oUice who was a warm personal friend of the President. We wonder, sometimes, how many friends he had, and if all are to receive office. What a fine tking to be the friend of a Presi dent. In fact, it would be well enough to make all the warm personal friends one can, for there is no knowing who may be Presideut and what advantages may accrue in consequence of early and life-long friendships. They undertook to carry Libby pris- .. . . . i on to Chicago as a souvenir oi tne re bellion. It was wrecked, and some re gret lias been expressed on account of it. But the New York Press thinks no one need to worry. That Yankee m genuity which could work canea enough out of Washington's writing desk to consume a million cubic feet of lumber will not fail to set up the prison with the genuine material though every brick had been crouud to powder. Such in stitutions do not give out so long as a market value attaches to them. The shooting of Mr. Smith, local ed itor of the Springfield Republican, a few nights ago, was one of the saddest af fairs of recent occurrence. He was shot by his brother-in-law who mistook him for a burglar, as there were burg lars on the premises at the" time. By a curious chain of circumstances Mr Smith was brought within range of the fatal charge. It ought to teach a les son, namely, that fire-arms in the hands of the inexpert are more dangerous to friends than to foes. If a man under takes to handle a gun of any kind he should be self-possessed enough to know just what he is about. The example of Father Damien shows that the spirit of self-sacritice has not passed entirely out of the hearts of men On one of the Hawaiian group of is lands there is a colony of lepers. Those who go there with the disease are shut out forever after from human society. Thev can never leave the island. In s 1873 Father Damien, a Belgian priest, a man of great promise, left behind him all prospects of preferment in the church and went to minister to the spiritual and physical necessities of the wretched beings who were congregated there, a ware that when once upon the island he could never leave it. He labored there eleven years and then fell a vic tim to the disease and has just died af ter five years of suffering. He worked heroically to better the condition of the lepers. He chose a field from which there came the most earnest call for help and from which all other laborers shrank. This Catholic priest may be counted among the greatest moral he roes the world has produced, and yet his name will scarcely be spoken in a generation from this. He helped men. Had he slaughtered them by the tens of thousands he would have won immortal fame. Such is the way of the world. No sensible man can be convinced that Gov. Hill is in favor of ballot re form or any other reform that refers to politics. Anything of this kind would break up his standing with the party to which he belongs. The legislature at Albany can play with reform measures as much as they please but when the proper time arrives he has only to put down his foot and that blocks the game. The Gov. talks about reform but the reform that would suit him must be brought about by saloon keepers and ping uglies and all such truck. The Saxton Reform Bill has gone where all such measures go when he lays his fist upon them. Judge Tourgee has given much atten tion to the negro problem, and is just loaded with facts and figures. Twenty five years ago the colored people of the South held no appreciable amount of property, lo-day tiiey have 1512,01)0,- U00 in the savings banks, and own property valued at 8100,000,000. In Georgia they own a million acres of land. Half the mechanics of the South are negroes and they raise two-thirds of the cotton. The African Methodist church has 12,000 churches, 10,000 ministers and contributes $2,000,000 annually for church work. At the pres ent rate of progress the per cent of illit erate whites will soon be larger than that of the negroes. The proud South erner objects to being ruled by the ig norant negroes. The day may come when the educated negro may think it a great misfortune to be ruled by the ignorant whites. THE QUESTION OFTAXES. A ccrtp.in church in the city of Spring field, Mass., owns a parsonage. The parsonage was a gift to the religious society. Some controversy arose con cerning its being taxable under the laws of that State. The courts decided that it was taxable. A society of young people was formed in the church for benevolent work, and by some kind of arrangement the parsonage passed into its hands, and now it is claimed that it is exempt from taxes on the ground that it is the property of a benevolent organization. There has been no change in the use of the property. Its status as property is the same as it has been ever since it came into the possession of the church. Apparently the trans fer that has been made of it is only a fiction. The question arises, is this an honest deal? Here is a religious body organized for the purpose of teaching and encouraging all the virtues, assum ing to teach a pure form of religious faith, and yet resorting to a trick to dodge taxes that would be regarded as contemptible in any profane citizen. It is 'no wonder that a newspaper dis cussioij has arisen over this transaction, What kind of honesty are they teach ing in that church? Do teachings cor respond to practice ? We have seen no explanation which the church may have given of the affair. Perhaps the fog lias been brushed away, but as yet the transaction looks like a trick. We are inclined to think that this is not a soli tary instance where the property of so cieties whose holdings are ordinarily exempt, trick property out of the list that ought to bear a share of the public burdens. This raises the question as to whether any property ought to be ex empt. There was a time when church property was more extensively the pro perty of the community than now and little or no injustice was done by ex empting it from taxes. There are ma ny men now who have no interest in any religious body and feel that their own burdens are heavier in consequence of the special favors granted them. It is evident that some of the reasons that once existed for these exemptions have worn away by changes in the customs of the people and the methods of doing business. Favors are not reciprocated I so much in kind as in cash. If society is benefitted by the existence of church es it contributes to the support of these churches, and feels that it pays for all that it gets in a direct way and that it should not pay in an indirect way. Another question comes up with regard to the way in which men look at taxes There are those strictly honest in all individual transactions who do not sera pie to cheat the goveruTient. T'.'ise acting for the society in question would no doubt have scorned to defraud an individual, but the government is soulless affair. It has no feelings to wound, no moral sense to take cogniz ance of any violation of moral sense on the part of those who deal with it. In justice towards it is injustice to Individ uals in a general and not a specific sense. Wronging everybody in an in definite, vagve sort of way does not do violence to the conscieiue in so clear a manner as the singling out of individ uals and imposing upon them. It is clear that such a state of mind is too common. We talk about educating men up to certain moral standards. It may be that here is a field upon which the moralist can enter,butif the church referred to is a representative church then our moral teachers in this line must be sought outside the churches, This state of tilings can be accounted tor in part by the feeling that there is a vast amount of injustice done in the levying of taxes, not so much by otli cers as by property holders. Each one feels that he is paying more than his just proportion and that almost every other one is manipulating things in a way to avoid meeting his obligations in full. If he cheats a little he does it with the feeling that he pays all that he ought to pay. He knows well enough that some have a way of slipping prop erty out of sight and suspects others of doing the same and he thinks it no worse for him than for them, and that in fact he must do something to pro tect himself. There is a feeling on the part of many that money paid for tax es brings poor returns. He has no one to educate, and the general need does not strike him very forcibly so long as the machinery of education is kept in running order. He pays his money for highway repairs, but he cannot dis cover that they are much better than they were when our forefathers blazed paths through the wilderness. He pays poor rates, but it is with a feeling that the money goes to the benefit of some who are able to take care of them selves, and to others who might have been if they had worked one half as in dustriously as himself. Considerations ot this character have a tendency to dull the moral sense. This can be kept at a keener edge when there is a better adjustment of the relations of society to the individual. Perhaps the educa. tion of couscienc. in this matter of tax es might help in. the general adjust ment. INTERESTING TO VETERANS. The Vermont militia's share in the national appropriation of equipment mouey is e3a.0ti. Col. A. S. Tracy of Middlebury, department commander G. A. R., has received an ( invitation to speak in Richmond, Ya., Memorial day. Commander E. C. Scott of Ethau Allen Post, G. A. R., Vergeunes, has been presented with a fine sword and belt by the members of the Post. Arrangements are in progress for the dedication of the Staunard monu ment at Burlington on June 20, the anniversary of the departure of the 2nd regiment for the front. In 1876 Vermont had thirteen G. A. R. Posts with a membership of 501. It now has 101 Posts with a membership ot 5013, and it is not a very big state either. The following pensions have recently been allowed to Vermont soldiers, through the pension agency of Chas. L. i airman, ashmgton, D. C. ; Al- mon B. Gibbs, Bratlleboro, increased from $8 to $12 ; Wesley Kellogg, Vergennes, increased from $6 to 88 ; Isaac Blake, (deceased) Morgan Ctr. ; original pension at f 15; John Brown, Burlington, original pension at $0 ; Charles W.

About 25 members of Brooks Post, of Montpelier, and several ex-soldiers, by special request, attended service at the Union Freewill Baptist house of worship at West Berlin Sunday the 5th to listen to a memorial sermon by Rev. John Buzzell, on the 25th anni versary of the battle of the Wilder ness. Henry and Wallace Carriek left St. Johnsbury last week for Gettysburg, where they will set up the Vermont Soldiers' monument, which has been shipped from their works. The mon- ' umeut is surmounted with a ligure ot Gen. Staimard, has a 17 foot base, stands CC feet high, weighs about 150 tons. The heaviest stone weighs CO, 000 pounds. It required twelve cars to carry the monument and at special rates came to over ?G00. The following Vermonters have re cently been recognize! in the award of pensions : Original, Charles . Kl- lis, Win. J. Dupaw, increase John Brasser, Franklin D. Angcle, Lewis Grey, Joseph Moore, Krskine Lyford, Clark Huntley, Theresa, widow of Chas. Dietal ; restoration and increase, Clias.
