But this is sim ply the breaking out of the old feeling Army officers have always disliked to receive orders from a civilian, even al though that civilian be the Secretary of War. We think the Government will stand the shock. The new States do not become States until made so by proclamation of the President, which, as things move can not be issued much if any before the middle of October. The new Consti tutions are still in process of construe tion. The constitution makers do not propose to follow copy too closely. A few new ideas will probably find t place iu tkese instruments. The state treasurer of yew I lamp shire wants to save money to that state by not publishing the laws in the state papers. But how are the people to know what the laws are? Perhaps some cheaper way of spreading the needed information can be devised. We pre sunie is might be done through sewing societies if these could be induced to take hold of the matter. If the people of New Hampshire will try this meth od and make a success of it, we shall recommend the adoption of the same in this State. We believe iu economiz ing to the utmost. Dr. Dorchester has spent two months in inspecting Indian schools in the far West. This must have been a paying job, especially if his wife went with him as a special clerk at a salary of six dollars a day. We suppose the of fice is important aud must be tilled, but we have inspected some of these schools unofficially, and it did not cost the gov ernment a cent. ithout boastmg at all we would say that iu our opinion the inspection did the public aud the schools aud t lie government as much good as the more expensive official one. The report about a shortage in the wheat crop is denied. There may have been damage to growing grain in some ! localities but nothing that need atTect the general result. This is a cry sent out in advance by speculators to make ready for an advance iu p-ices. ' We are assured that we have wheat enough and to spare and if anybody attempts to impose upon us in this matter we hope they will be snuffed out without even the benefit of clergy. We have enough evil to bear in the shape of the imposition of trusts without the addi tion of flour speculators. Speaker Carlisle iu the August Fo- rum makes a reply to Senator Morrill's article in the July number. He under takes to vindicate the democratic" party from the aspersions cast upon it by the honorable Senator. Whatever any one may think of his positions it must be admitted that they are well taken. The chief value of the Forum lies in the fact that it discusses important questions on both sides. Dr. Coxe sounds an alarm respecting alien government iu this country, and especially New York city. Dr. Atkinson continues his discussion of the poverty question, and Senator Ingalls talks about prohibition and li cense, with special reference to the op erations of prohibition in Kansas. It is a valuable article. The Auguct No. of this Review is well worth reading, and no one interested in public ques tions can afford to pass it by without notice. i Some of the daily papers are wasting a great deal of space in trying to con vict each other of lying in statements regarding open bars. We think it w ill at ONCE. WE SHALL STOP ALL PAPERS NOT RENEWED NEXT WEEK be safest to admit that Ihere are just as many open bars in the wicked towns of St. Albans, Rutland, Burlington and Montpelier as the most enthusiastic anti-prohibitionists claim. We presume that the editors iu the places mentioned report according to knowledge. They probably state the number of bars with which they are acquainted and natural ly assume that there are no more. We are glad to live in a community where temperance laws are respected and open bars are not known. It has been clearly demonstrated that a grand mistake was made when Cor poral Tanner was appointed Commis sioner of Pensions. The democratic papers of course, were never friendly to him, but his conduct of the office has called out the severest criticism from republican papers. It has been found expedient to appoint a board to inquire into his management. There has been a recklessness about the granting of pensions which if continued, will re-act upon the veterans and the injustice done to the public will fall upon some who are deserving of better things. Secre tary Noble has taken matters msre un der his owu supervision aud we presume some of the recklessuess will strip. When it is thrown in the face of the Southerner that according to his meth od of running politics one vote in the old rebel states counts for as much as four in the loyal states iu the make up of the National Congress, he facetious ly asks if one Southern vote is not worth as much as four Northern ones. ' To answer the question one ueed only look over a specimen of an average South erner, such as helps compose the rank and tile of the white voting population and then wonder at the amount of pure cheek in the face of a Southern editor. Such an assumption can be best treated with the contempt of silence, while the people of the North go to work aud cor rect the evil which they have patiently allowed to be inflicted upon them. It looks to us a little as though the requirements in the examination of teachers for certificates under the new law are such as to very sensibly reduce the number of teachers in the State. In the first place age limit cuts them down. Most girls are thinking about marrying at the time they are allowed to com mence teaching. Again, experience is made to determine gratles in part, so that the ambition ot incorrigible old maids only can be stimulated. Then the questions that have been given out iu some brandies of study and in some counties are such as to demand a liber al education and a phenomenal memo ry, liesides all this, where examina tions are held at only one or two places in a county the trouble and expense of procuring certificates are discouraging. If we are to depend upou teachers with county certificates it looks a little as thouch there would be schoolhouses to rent. Perhaps the Normal schools can make good the deficiencies. THE "TRUST" BUSINESS. The system of "trusts" is beginning to press pretty close upon the people. When sugar rises to eleven cents per pound without any reason for so doing outside of a combination of capitalists, people naturally complain under such extortion. If is a question just how much of this kind of extortion the peo ple will endure. There seems to be a purpose on the part of moneyed men to take possession of the earth, and if they keep on at the present rate they will soon get there. It is said that there are three hundred thousand barrels of granulated sugar stored in New York, held to keep prices where they now are or for an advance as may seem best to the monopolists. In the meantime the people who have fallen into the hands of these trusts caijlo nothing as one paper says but to trust in Providence. Heretofore there has been competition sufficient to break up auy combinations of capital, but now combinations com bine and all opposition is shut ofT by hv the power and shrewd management of one great monopoly. But the sugar ' trust is not the only one the people have reason to fear. A salt trust has been orsranized. One huudred and twenty-nine companies have been gath ered into this, and the prospect is that soon the entire salt manufacture of the country will be in the hands of a single company. The, price will then be al most certain to advance. isalt is one of the necessaries of life. It has usu ally been plenty aud cheap. In the hands of a trust the poor of the coun try will be forced to contribute out of their poverty to add to the wealth of the rich. There is no reason why this should be so except as the rich use the power their riches give them to bring about this result. It is claimed that a combination of capital means economy of production and management. This may be so, but the benefits are to ac crue to the capitalists aud not to the public. The creation of fictitious stock upon which dividends must be paid is a scheme for absorbiug all that cau be saved by operating on a large scale. A movement has been set on foot tow ards a railroad trust. The banks have been "felt of a little to see how they incline with reference to offering aid, Such a trust might give more uniform rates aud prevent so much cutting by competing lines, but in such matters it is always safe to assume one thing, aud that is that the public will pay for all it gets in the way of accommodation or advance by this method. The English capitalists have been seeking to gain control of our beer business by buying uo all our large breweries. This seems to be a day when every interest that atlects the people is fulliug into the con trol of a few men who propose to make themselves immensely wealthy at the expense of the public. In the mean time many products outside the rauge of these trusts, and upon which farmers depend as a source of income are de clining in price. The dairy business does not pay the cost of running, and is continued by thousands of men only because they cannot readily turn to oth er occupations or modes of farm labor. Thus it conies about that the thiujrs farmers must buy are tending upward, the pi ice of what they produce and must sell is tending downward. It a matter of surprise that the number of abandoned farms does not increase in stead of decline, and if this system of trusts so recently orgauized is pushed to a great development this will be the result. Is there any remedy ? How are we to break up these trusts or avoid their worst tendencies ? There are some things in the use of which people can economize, aud break up trusts in them by letting them alone. Sugar has reached a price that is diminishing its consumption, and should it rise another notch the amount consumed will be cut dowu immensely. It is not easy to economize much on salt, unless our dairymen choose the fashionable way of saltiug butter. As to beer it makes no particular difference to us what the priee is as we shall go without all the same. The present purpose seems to be to form trusts iu almost everything that the people must have. It looks like a grand scheme of extortion on the part of a few against the many. It is like putting the public iuto a vise aud turning the screw just a little at a time Some think there is no use in wiggling, that there is nothing to do but to grin and bear it. Our impression is that the people will take the matter in haud and break up these trust by legislation. There must be some way to reach them aud check their power for evil. The new State of Washington proposes to take the bull by the horns and insert in her Constitution a clause forbidding their formation. The courts have al ready taken hold of the sugar trust, but nothing that relieves the public has yet been carried out. We see in all these trusts a tendency towards the forma tion of that state of society that Edward Bellamy has so graphically described in "Looking Backward." It may be that the solution of the questions that now vex us w hich he there gives, is the i .. . i-i only one that can oe reacneu. Sample Copies Again This Week, but do More We send out a large number of sam ple copies of this issue of the Herald. We ask all who receive one to look it over carefully, aud if they do we are sure they will agree with us that it is the BEST LOCAL PAPER in Orange or Windsor Counties. We propose to publish all the news trom these counties and tojnake the paper, although the lowest in price, the best one for you to take. Be sure and read the great Ameri can story by Kmina II. Southworth, than whom there are few more inter esting story writers, entitled "FETTERED BY FATE." It will be run iu liberal installments ou the inside pages and will be the best story we ever published. Another noted American writer, who has already made her name fa mous the world over as the author of "The Quick and the Dead," Amelia Rives, has written a delightful short story entitled "MY LADY TONGUE.' ' This we begin in this issue. Be sure and read it. Now why do we do this? Adver tising is dull and we have room for these stories without crowding out any of the news or the other good things we publish every week, and besides we want every one who does not now take the llr.KALW to try it during the next three mouths. We sud you this issue and one next week free and only ask that you read and enjoy them. We will send it to you ON TRIAL TILL OCT. 1 8T FOR ONLY 10 CTS. Yoii need not send the money to us but hand it to your post-master. All papers will stop then unless renewed, so you need have no fear the paper will be crowded on you. Please try it. Yours truly, L.

Greenleaf thinks the camp grounds the best that the na tional guard has ever used. The ex tent of the grounds is such that mure thau the usual amount of practice will be given, botli in skirmish drill and be fore the target. The inspectors of ri fle practice will be assisted by Lieut. R. W. Hoyt of the 11th Infantry, Uf S. A., now stationed at rinttsburgh, who has been detailed for the purpose. Other officers of the army will be pres ent, and the Burlington Cadets will visit the camp on Governor's day. Many wheelmen do not think it is any object to belong to the L. A. W. Let us see. Are you sure you will never be called to defend a suit for damages because, some one's team runs away, when the fault is clearly not yours? Are you sure you may not be ruu" into by some road hog and your wheel ruin ed? AVould it not be worth while to have a strong orgauization to defend your right ? This is just what the L. A. W. is for. Besides it secures to members a weekly paper giving all the cycle news, reduced hotel rates, etc., etc. It ouly cost S2 to join and ?1 a year thereafter and half this conies back into your State L.
