It has the wcaltli, the con venience of location, etc. Chicago may be large enough by the next centennial of Columbus' discovery. The House of Representatives of the United States stands as follows 011 the clerk's roll : republicans, 1(53; demo crats, 100 ; two members having died. This gives the republicans an exact quorum, and it is rumored that the dem ocratic scheme is to prevent the tran saction ol any business unless there is a quorum present. They can do this little trick and make things decidedly unpleasant. We hope, however, that they will have the iuterestsof the coun try sufficiently at heart to exhibit a proper measure of common sense. The colored editors of an Alabama paper suggested a short time ago that the whites could move out if uot con tented to live with the negroes. This wa a horrible suggestion. The whites run those editors down and lynched them. Wade Hampton rashly remark ed that he wished the negroes could be colonized somewhere, anywhere, and not a negro thought of lynching him. lu.d. talk has commenced down South and the banging of a lew negroes will n..t nrevent it. The day may come when some of the chickens these rebels: semi out will come home to roost. T.t tl.fl taxes entirely off all prop-' erly in this State and that alone would not cause Vermont to prosper or .....nc her people contented. Just as long as we have no faith in this Slate; find fault with every effort made to improve her condition, if it is not our plan ; talk about how poor she is, and bow every body is leaving her, and people w ill not come here ; our cituens will go South r West where there are no greater nat ural advantages, but where the people have a linn faith in their own locality, and no matter bow hard the times are will always tell you they are just on the point of a great boom that will make everybody rich. Talk up Vermont. Speak of her good points. The dark side w ill be fully advertised without our doing it. The St. Johusbury Republican has one sovereign remedy for all the troub les in Vermont. Only abolish double taxation of mortgaged property and she will be all right. The Herald advocat ed that long ago, but it will never be. It would help the farming interests but the votes of fanners keep that law on our statute books. What we need more thau this even is greater economy m State expenses. Year by year the cost of the State government is increas ing and taxes must increase. It is a JL Vn-icVe here, and a new asylum there, an increase in this officer's sala ry, and so on through a long list. 1 ne -tia , mstins more and more each sen"""3 . o . year There is not an item in State matters that our legislators do not seem bound to increase. Let us turn o, er a if plwt men to the next legisla- new ic., ture who will cut down the salanes,cut down the Stat expenses, stop voting the State's money away foolishly. Let us wait till the boom is fully on in Ver mont beiore we go in for any more ex travagances. Let us eien meu, r .hn will lesrislate so that all prop. erty will be taxed once and only once, and that where the ,ropeny is .i. The State Agricultural College at Burlington has just established a two years' course of study in agriculture. This seems more like business than anything that has hitherto been done. This uew course is to be devoted en tirely to the study of the principles and processes of farming. The design is to make intelligent farmers of some of our young men,, with special reference to fanners' sons. Candidates for admis sion to this course must be lifteen years of age, of good moral character and able to pass examination in common school studies. Or they may be admit ted upon the certificate of a former teacher. Courses of study for each year have been carefully prepared that have special reference to the cultivation of the soil ami the care of domestic an imals. These include the first princi ples of chemistry, the physiology of farm animals, the treatment of disease, the preparation and useof fertili7.ers,dai rying, gardeuing, etc. In fact, almost everything that one can think of as be longing to the work of .the farm will receive attention. It would seem as if the course was crowded, and yet, per haps it would be hard to decide what to leave out. The study of agriculture opens a wider field thau most would think w ho have not carefully looked in to the matter. There is not much sol id learning that comes amiss even to a farmer. If he knows anything he can not use he can enjoy the possession and find something to solace weariness. We hope many of our young men will make use of this opportunity. There are uo charges for tuition or laboratory fees. The only items of expense are books and board, the latter in commons hall being about S'2 i)0 per week for table board. Young men in this course will be started upon lines of study which they can follow out at a later period if they choose. SOCIAL EVILS. Dr. Washington Gladden, who has recently gained some notoriety at the Chautaii.uau Assembly by his lectures upon trusls and social questions has an article in the September Forum upon some of the evils that exist in modern society and some of the dangers that threaten in consequence. We wish to call attention to this article as being worthy of public attention, and the rem edies he proposes as worthy of applica tion. These ills under which we suf fer may be classified under three heads, the first, is, the unequal distribution of the increasing wealth of the world. I lie class known as capitalists are getting hold of much the largest share of this increasing wealth, while the laboring classes are getting hold of much less than their share. It is not to be denied that the condition of the laboring class es is improving but not so rapidly as the wealthy classes. The difference be tween the two classes is growing wider each year. Any one can see this by comparing the present with twenty-rive years ago. Too many of the poor and those in moderate circumstances under take to ape the style of the rich and in consequence fall iito debt, and this debt is growing upon them. The mer cantile classes suffer a loss and this is in an indirect way charged back upon the wealthier classes. This process may tend to even up but the morality of the process is not healthy. There are those who insist that this is not in accordance with facts, that much the largest share of the world's increasing wealth goes to the laboring classes, and the reason of present appearances is be- oo,iS of its wider distribution. Hut an answer to this position is found in the growth of giant monopolies, sucn as railway combinations, corporations that control courts and legislatures, trusts that get control of great industries. These last levy contnDulions upon uie general public, a little everywhere, and ,1,;. concentrates wealth. The sugar trust determines for the people how r,., h xiar they shall eat and the price ihey shall pay for it. Every other tt oDerates upon me same pnucipie. He declares this to be sumptuary legis lation of the most sweeping character, such as no civilized people have ever tolerated. He regards all this talk a bout trusts being iu the hands of good people, wisely managed, etc., as a de lusion and a snare. The public can see that the mauagers of monopolies are enriching themselves at the expense of the people. The existence of these monopolies awakens apprehension. Po litical philosophers and economists are discussing them with solicitude. Leg islators are contriving how to restrict them. There is wide-spread anxiety and indignation on account of their ex istence. Say what we will there is a great deal of truth in the remark of Chauncey Depew : "The working man has a grievance." he says. He knows what it is. He knows there is some thing wrong in the system by which a few men irrow immensely wealthy by practicing a system of mild extortion of which thev are the vic;ims. Out of all .this there is growing another social ill, and that is an increasing feud be tween the rich and the poor. There is bitterness and jealousy and alienation ot feeling which augur no good in the future. The worst thing that can hap pen to us is the destruction of sympa thy between the different classes in so- ciety It is said of labor troubles that they are largely sentimental, but the feeling that grows up between the rich and the poor is deep-seated. Another social evil is an increase of what may be called the parasitic class. This is made up of paupers, gamblers and criminals. They are what Prof. Win. Graham calls "the social residuum." It is a class that needs uo description The simple fact to which attention is called is, that it is a growing class. It is already uncomfortably large. The term "gamblers" covers a wide range of methods of getting money without earning it, from the Stock Exchange to the buuko-steerers. It must be admit ted that these are increasing in num bers. New methods of getting the money of the honest and industrious without returning an equivalent, are being sought out. Hut, who is to blame for this congestion of wealth? Law, in part. Who make the laws? Those w ho sutler from these inequalities have this matter largely under their own control The laboring classes constitute a large numerical majority of the voters. Why do they not apply the remedy now in their hands ? The fact is, there are uo wrongs they cannot correct if they had the requisite intelligence. Had laws, and bad systems, and unjust taxation exist because the people allow them to I exist, and the people allow them to ex ist because they are not shrewd or sharp enough to avoid being misled by deimv gogues, and corrupt politicians and all sorts of tricksters. The remedy is ea sy to be found a higher degree of in telligence among the working classes. This i not all, industry must be organ ized upon a different basis. The sini' pie wage system should be replaced by one in which the laborers are partic pants in the gains of industry. These are the remedies suggested and they are carefully discussed, making an in teresting article. The Herald has referred in the past to some serious considerations that should be weighed by V ermont far mere, to whom the Elitterinif general ities of circulars advertising Western farms are a temptation to leave this state and 8eek prosperity in a new field. There are other considerations, also that should not be limored ; and not least among them are the facta that the wages on New England farms to day are fully as high for an equivalent kind and quantity or Jaoor as any where east of the Rocky Mountains, and that in the Western states there is a larger number of worthy men tramping in search of employment than in any New England state. The undeveloped Western lands are being exhausted rapidly; and the east ern fanner should realize the fact that not only will the tide surely turn, but to profit by it fully he should devote his attention more assiduously than ever to the immediate improvement of his farm and of his methods that it mav the more readily enhance in val ue when the turn in the tide does come. Rutland Herald. WINDSOR CO. VETERANS REUNION. icia One of the 1110-t charming days ot the year was given to the veteran soldiers of Windsor County for their ninth annual reunion held at Windsor on Weduesday of last week. The veterans evidently appreciated the efforts put forth iu their iK'hairby dame nature for they ciinie in larjje numbers. Special trains were run from West Randolph and Ludlow, both of which were heavily loaled. The spe cials arrived at Wind, r at about 10 A. M. and soon after their arrival a proces sion was for d in which were about 500 veterans, the Windsor, Ludiow, Bellows Falls, (.'ornish. Hartford and Woodstock bunds. The column, after a brief march about the village, marched to the camp which was upon the Kverctt meadows, now owned l.y I Ion. C. ( '. Iieaut.-tn of Xew York, here they broke ranks and scattered about the camp to indulge in the best part of the reunion, a visit with the old conniidek. After dinner there whs speaking from a stand erected in the northern part of the camp. Prayer was ottered by Rev. S. S. Martin, Windsor. ( (.nun in.'icr .). II. Humphrey, of Win. V. Tracy Post. Windsor, then introduced Col. S. M. Piiignt; who gave the address of welcome, lie spoke earnestly of the duty of the veterans to instil into the minds of the young the value of the flag under w hich "the veterans fought. He then spoke of the part the c unity took lu the last war and paid tribute to the memory of Capt. Win. C. Tracy, ( .'0. li, 4th, who was shot in the fight on the Weldon R. R., June 2:1, 1S84. Col. W. C. Holbrook of New York, first a lieu tenant In Co. F, 4ih, then major and later colonel of the 7th, spoke first of the Windsor County boy, he met in the 4th and 7th. of the "tie that binds old soldiers together, the patriotism of Yermonters. the governor of Yennor.t who Induced Abraham Lincoln to issue his call for 300, (KM) men, the writing promising to raise the quotas of their several states signed by Governors Holbrook,Andrews, Buckingham, Morgan, et als., of Capt. Tracy, of whom (ien. L. A. Oraut said : "His dead body was found 011 the field next day, (June 21, 'H4) surrounded by the muskets of his men lying on the ground, giving evidence that he had ral lied around him the men of his command and that they had surrendered only when their gallant leader had fallen ' Capt. Tracy was a good and brave officer. Xoue excelled hi 111 iu purity of character and earnestness of purpose. Modest and unassuming in manners he rose w it h the occasion and was found equal to every emergency." Of Capt. Mahlon II. Young of Co. il., 7th, he said : "He fell, riddled with bul lets, at Mariana, Fia., Sept. 2", IHiit. f never knew a braver, cooler, better man." To the "newspaper generals"' and that "cock eyed son of destiny,"' whose injustice to" the 7th will never "be forgiven by the survivors of that regi ment as long as they or Butler live. Col. Holbrook paid his regards in scathing words, ilealso expressed his contempt for the statesmen ( r) of these dogs who think the soldiers have received all that is due them. Wm. C. CJuthi ie of Xew York, a young but eloquent speaker spoke of the duty of those of iiis generation to remember what bad been done by their lathers and saying that the same blood is now flow ing iu the veins or young Americans that flowed iu the veins of the old soldiers and in the veins of the veteran's patriot ic ancestry, he promised that should oc casion require, those of his generation would fight for the old flag and would uphold the honor of the country as did those veterans. Kx-Lieut. (iov. Fuller found the scene inspiring. When these comrades of a quarter of a century ago meet, and grasp ing hands exhibit the joy thpy rind in the meeting men who have in them one spark of sentiment will see in them the Godhood that was with these old veter ans. Of the American soldier, Col. S. K. I'ingree at Lee's Mills of Wru. Scott who died like a brave man and of Windsor county soldiers he spoke eloquently. He was glad the hand is neingput deeper in to the surplus aud that it was bringing to the soldier a part of that that is his due. II. B. Athertou, Kj. of Nashua, Capt. Co. ( ',4th. "a Caveuuisb boy" made a ringing, good speech. 1 "he veterans should take no credit they could uot help doing what they did. The freeing of the slaves was but an incident of the war; the boys went out to save their country. Mr. Guthrie's promise pleas ed him. It was worth coming here to learn that the boys realizing the worth of our government were ready to pledge themselves to its support aud if needed, to take theia places in the field. Past Dept. Commander J. D. Billings of Massachusetts, the author of "Hard tack and Coffee" made an excellent speech in which was mixed both humor and pathos. L. M. Read followed with a rattling good speech. He too, was struck by the promise of Mr. Guthrie and believed that the country would be safe iu the hands of the boys. With this speech closed the social exercises of the after uoon. A business meeting followed in which a committee composed of one vet eran from each town in the county was elected; they elected Wru. C- Whipple of Poiufret, Wm. Sparrow of Sprinirtield and Geo. Wil ley of Sharon on executive committee. Bethel and Springfield ask ed for the next reunion and the matter was left in the committee's bands. Co. C 6th Vt. met and voted to merge their association w ith that of the regiment. Co. H 10th Vt. elected Win. A. Sloane, Pres., Oscar Gassett, Sec. and Treas. iney w ill meet w ith the county veterans next year. A free supper was given the veterans immediately after the close of the business meeting. In the evening there WH9 a campfire upon the ground at .men Capt. u. X . Bruce of Barnard. Capt. A. W. Davis of W. R. Junction, Past Commander Billinirs of Mass.. W. C. Guthrie of Xew York and Col.
