EDITORIAL NOTES. It seems to us that the farmers of tlie State iu their vurious meetings spend too much time in hewailing the fate that made them farmers. Let them read Jeremiah less and David more. New York city has contributed over one million dollars to nid the sufierei's in the Pennsylvania disasters. A great many (lings have been made at the pen uriousness of that city because her con tributions for the Grant monument have been so meager, but dont the people of New York know best where to put their money ? They have learned that it is better to give bread where it is needed than stone where they are not needed. The city has erected a monument for itseli in the name of charity that will endure longer than any column ol mar ble or granite. The .St. Johnsbury liepublicau rec ommends that the churches of Vermont consolidate. Now, this is an old rack et. The same recommendation was floatiug around loose when the editor of the Uepublican was, as yet, in the loins of his father. But we would like to see the Republican editor begin to consoli date. Let him go into some communi ty that has a Baptist church of four members and a Methodist church of six and a Christndelphian church of sev en and a half and shake them all down together into one beautiful and harmo nious church. Before he has finished the job he w ill wish to step out some where and draw himself together. The consolidation business is fine in theory, but where a man's religion is bound up in his church connections it is about as easy to unite two churches of differing faiths into one bs to mix sand and su gar. JJr. oiauuen once wrote some papers on this subject for the "Centu ry" in which he worked out a scheme, locating it in Connecticut, and made it appear so real, that some one wrote to the Dr. and asked him where in Conn. hurches had been consolidated on his plan. He replied that he refenedto the Conn, above and not the Conn, be low. When the churches of Vermont have become well consolidated tlie State will be a part of "kingdom come," and we hope the editor of the Republican will be there. Juilc Power granted a writ of ha beas corpus at Middlebury the other day by which the release of the (..rand Ij1 fwlipmien has been secured. It mav be all right and proper .hat they should be released, but the reasons for rrrnntimr the writ and the occasion for the reasons show an ignorance or loose ness of method in doing legal business that to the non-professional mind seems a disgrace to men of the law. They are not released because of any doubt r.f thpir miilt. or because of any new ..... C . facts discovered, but because of slight irre-mlaritics in the process by which their confinement was secured. Our laws are loosely constructed, and we believe that a majority of our lawyers have a better understanding of what is not in the law than of w hat is.and that judges' opinions have more worth than those of the common herd ot intelligent men for the simple reason that no one, except some other judge, has a right to go behind them. We like to see justice administered without being compelled to run the gauntlet of so many lawyers and courts. A too fine-spun civilization will throw a community back into bar barism. The proceeds of the Memorial Day entertainment at Rochester aggregated 148.50. HASTY INFERENCES. A few days ago the, to many, start ling announcement was made that Rev ur. m. Li. liage, a prominent clergy man, had committed suicide by leaping from the fourth story window of an as ylum in Philadelphia where he was un dergoing treatment. The report first appeared in the dailies, then it passed into the weeklies, and in all the various repetitions of it, it is assumed in a va riety of phrases that he took his own life. Some of the papers have taken this event as a text for a brief discourse upon the tendencies of modern life. The age is called a railroad age, and some. thing of the bustle and excitement of a railroad is imparted to everything. La bor-saving machines do not save labor they increase the aniouut of labor performed. There is a kind of rustle about life that exhausts the nervous force of great numbers of men and wo men and brings on varying dogrees of insanity. We are taught this by gen eral observation. 1 ue sermons are correct. They fall into line with what we are taught in other ways. Hut tUe fact is, we do not believe that the text fits the sermon. There are certain things about the death of Dr. Gage that puts the theory of suicide in doubt. In former years w had some slight ac quaintance with Dr. Gage, and have known something of his life in later years. He was not physically strong. Ilis mind was intensely active. He was a clear and sharp thinker and was apt in mental effort to go beyond his phys. ical strength. In consequence of this he has sufiered interruptions iu his lit erary and ministerial work. In fact, he has been more or less of an invalid But we have never known that he ex hibited signs of insanity. He was not iu an insane asylum, but in an asylum where a specialty was made of straight ening the feet of children, but where nervous disorders were also treated. It was a place of his own choosing. No thought of suicide occurred to his at tendants and he was not watched with any fear of such an event. He was seen to fall from the window of his room, was picked up from the sidewalk unconscious aud died in about two hours. Those who knew him best do not believe he took his own life. lie was subject to dizziness when he would hurriedly seek the open air. He was seen by his nurse shortly before he fell from the window and was in cheerful mood. It is thought' he was attacked by dizziness, hastened to the window for relief and losing his balance fell out. This is a plausible explanation. It is oue of those events that cannot be fully explained. The point we wish to make is, that it is altogether too hasty an in ferenco. Somebody supposed that the circumstances warranted the belief in a suicide, they knew that such a report would be more sensational llia i a com mon-place narrative of accidental death, and regardless of the truth or the feel ings of friends a hasty supposition goes flying through the laud as a clearly es tablished fact. This case is only one of a multitude w here just such infer ences are drawn. During the last week or two the country was stirred by the reports of the Conemaugh disaster. Agents of the associated press have beeu busy sending out dispatches, and their zeal and energy has been everyw here manifest. But these dispatches taken all tofrether are a confused jumble of 43 - facts and eriesses. The statements of one day are contradicted the next. The figures are cut down as the situation is better understood. Everything was made as large as possible at first to satisfy a greed for the marvelous and make papers sell. Of course the disas ter is bad enough but not as bad as at first made to appear. There have been numerous reports about the dam. From these a candid reader can reach no other conclusion than that very lit tle is known about it. One day we are told that it was made like a railroad filling and could hardly be expected to stand the pressure of a heavy dew. The next we are told that it was of solid mason work. Apparently very little is known about it and it may be the truth will never get before the public. Daily papers give the public all the statements that can be desired, but ev en the slow weeklies fail to bring' the truth. What is the use of associated press dispatches when they are made up of hasty inferences, aud one must wait a long time for the truth and per haps never get it unless by accident ? It seems to us that the public would be better served by saying nothing about events until the facts are understood. News gatherers may say that they on- j ly meet a public demand. But the fact is they have created the demand and by their methods they make the demand more urgent. It seems to us that room remains for some newspaper, which, dropping the sensational, shall give the public only well-ascertained facts. It is not necessary that an event should be kuowu before 'it happens, and it would be better for the public to learn the truth at the outset than to get at it if at all through a confused mass of ex aggerated statements. People read re ports greedily, daily, but the sober minded wait awhile until the truth has had time to push its way to the surfaee Present indications are that Vermont is drying up. The forests have been cut off, the little mountain streams have dried up, the fish are scouring the coun try to find something to drink, and all indications point to the fact that soon there will be little else than a desert of sand with here and there a withered mulleii stalk, between the Connecticut river and the Hudsou valley. What shall we do? If the dry weather that has prevailed during the past year con timies much longer it will be necessary to drive all the ducks to Lake Cbanip- laiu to soak out their webs. The fact is, as a rule it does not rain but thirty hours out of twenty-four, and that is too little where so much of the land stands on its edge and the water runs off at once. Our great need is a moist- er climate. This we must have or per sh. The roads need a more thorough washing iu order to pay somebody for hauling dirt back in again. The farmers suffer loss of milk as water enough does not soak into the cows to keep up the supply. Everything iu nature betokens decay. We must have more rain. Iu early days, when Thomas Wilson was pastor of the Old South church in Boston, if it was dry weather the call would go out from the Boston clergy to the country parishes to join in a Fast and pray for raiu. On one of these occasions the Sudbury minister came up to Boston aud remonstrated with Dr. Wilson for praying so much for rain. "Why," said he, "as quick as a plant begins to wilt in your gardens you pray for rain and you keep the country all about Sudbury and the neighboring towns under water." Let ii find out who is praying for rain and remonstrate with them. If something is not done what is to become of all the theories that science has thrust under our noses for the last twenty-five years? A QUESTION FOR LABORING MEN Who is the friend of the lalioring man? All through the last campaign the democratic orators aud papers said the republican party was not what it claimed to be, the friend of labor. Let us see labor gets from $1,50 to 82.00 per day iu this state now, farm help from $15 to $25 a month and board, mechanics $1.75 to S3. 00, mill men $1.00 to $3.00 per day, and here are a few facts as to the cost of the necessities of life that the republi can party is taxing so heavily taken from a democratic exchange. 'These are the good republican times that we heard preached last fall : Good butter, 14c ; potatoes, 20 ; wool, 20 ; eggs, 12c dor. ; good oxen, 3c lb ; flour, $6." Are they not good times, laboring men? High wages and cheap food. The second annual reunion of the Fifth Vermont regiment, E. H. Trick president, and C. H. Forbes secretary, will be held at Burlington on Thurs day, June 20th, on the occasion of the unveiling of the Stannard monument. Why Vermont Does Not Boom. A FEW PLAIN REASONS. Tlie Burlington Clipper says reports from Denison, Texas and other points would indicate that New England cap italists are making things boom down there. "In Vermont," it says, "these same capitalists insist upon waiting for au enterprise to become an ussured suc cess before they invest in it." Is this true ? If so, why? Having taken quite an extensive trip west aud south this year visiting those "magic cities," etc., and closely studying the conditions there and here, we firmly believe the following to be true : Vermont docs not boom because at least oue half her people have no faith in her resources and worse than that, take every possible opportunity to run down the town and state they live in, and every enterprise in them. These places south and west do grow, not so much from their greater advantages, but because every man, woman and child in them, whether at heart they believe or uot, are enthusi astic for them, talk of little else than their advantages, location, etc., etc. It is uot healthy to live in a western town and run it down. Nothing im presses a stranger more than this. There are plenty of people who have property to sell iu these places, but they will tell you it is not because they want to go away they will sell, far from it. They will sell ouly to buy again. Take any town in Vermont and half the people want to sell out. Why? To get out of the town and state they openly declare, alleging that nothing pays and any change is for the better. What capitalist would dare to invest in a town where half the people want to leave and say it is going to decay ? Who is to blame ? No one but the people themselves. Why not every body talk up, not down, the tow n aud state they live in? It would not be lung if the people could only see this point, before all could get out of the state who wanted to go and property would sell at good prices and quick at that. Right here is the whole thing in a nut-shell. Stop growling and go to booming your town and state. Let a hundred capitalists visit any town in the state with capital to invest and they will find any amount of peo ple who will advise them not to buy this farm, or that property. Is this good policy? Go into any towu in Vermont and try to start a $100,0(10 manufactory, ask the people in the town to take one quarter of the stock and they won't do it. Go into a place of the same size south or west and they would take twice that, evcrylmdy would take 'r-k. They would not wait tor the rich men to take it, every man would take hold to the extent of his ability, and thus show his faith iu his town. We honestly believe Vermont can offer as great, if not greater opportuni ties lor capital to make sale and big paying investments, but we can never get capital to do so till people w ill go to work with a will and all boo in their town and state and every enterprise in them. Let a stranger go into a western or southern town and want to buy a farm. The first man he meets will take his team and show him around, w hether that man has any farm property to sell or not. He can spend a week or more looking over farms and it won't cost hira a cent. Try that scheme in aay Vermont town and somebody would sell a fann aud then somebody el.e, and that town would begin to boom. The question now before us then is. Shall we boom Vermont, working up the opportunities and advantages jnst at hand, making the most of the re sources of our own State, or shall we send our capital and the enenry asd activity of our youth to bnild up and develop the South and West while we sit in inactivity and BToan. ihat. The times are so hard and Vermont failure?"
