West Kamlolplt, EDITORIAL yOTES. Another Vernionter has come to the front. John I. Gilbert, the recently selected republican candidate for secre tary of State of New York, is a native of Pittsford and a graduate of the Uni versity at Burlington. He was a teach er at Malone for a number of years and afterwards studied law and settled in practice in thai town. He has always been a strong republican. lie has been a member of both branches of the New York legislature, and in 1K.S4 was a delegate to Chicago where he supported Sen. Kdmtinds and afterwards stumped Vermont fur Blaine. He is a strong prohibitionist. The superior quality of Vermont sheep has long been known and fully admit ted by fehucp breeders. Our pride lias been flattered on numerous occasions by reports from various parts of the world of their superiority over the cheap breeds of the West and Australia. Now come flattering reports from New South Wales. At an agricultural fair recent ly held in that remote part of the world it is reported that Vermont sheep cai ried everything before them, and we are assured that this is the more re markable owing to the fact that oppo nents of this particular kind of stock had been very active in deprecating his points and attributing any virtues he might have to the infusion of the native Australian blood. This success has added much to the popularity of our Vermont stock in a land where sheep are a specialty. The supervisors and members of the county boards of education held a meet ing at Montpelier last week to consider the matter of uniformity of text-books throughout the State. A way to secure this is now open. The new law pro vides for county uniformity. Now let the county supervisors agree together upon the same books. A committee was appointed to take the matter inlo consideration. Resolutions were pass ed approving of the free text-book plan. This is asking too much. We believe in bringing the cost of school-books down to a much cheaper rate than they are now sold for, but they should not be given away. The State should not be held in the light of a parent to pro vide, but a police to protect. The more the Slate does for the individual the less the individual will do for himself, If books are furnished without cost to the pupils they will not use them with so much care as they would if compel! ed to buy for their own use. The State lias no farther interest in the education of its children than public safety tie mauds. Some of the States are trying the free text-book plan, better wait and see how the scheme works.

The action of CWress at the per- A sound Cllrrei"'y " lleJ i(r tbe sistent demand of the people of Califor nia in excluding the Chinese, may at some future period, bring us into diffi culty. The new law is a violation of treaty obligations. The Chinese un derstand it, not the government only but the masses of the people. There is a growing feeling in that country that if their citizens cannot come here then we must not go there. If the in habitants of China cannot hnve the s.tnie rights here that other foreigners enjoy then the citizens of the United States must keep out of China. The question tor us to confront ftiay be, which had we rather do, allow the Clii- crease of silver coinage is protested a gainst, and the desire expressed to so reduce the surplus as to maintain eq uitable business conditions ; to main tain protection, and to strive without ceasing to secure a national election law which shall protect voters and the ballot, to continue its just and liberal policy towards the veterans and grunt aid to steamship lines and begin the building of a merchant marine and to support appropriation for the navy.

This matter is being dis cussed among them. It is not impossi ble but that we may hear of outrages upon American residents.

Stock Farm in this town received the highest award for butter at the Paris Exposition this summer. iow, wneiner or noi uiey make the best butter in the world, this award sets them out in that light. They competed with all nations, kindreds and tongues and carried away the prizes. This reflects high credit, first of M, up on the gentlemen mentioned. If their butter is no better than that of some others in Vermont they had the enter prise to enter the lists and take their chances of winning or losing. In the second place it reflects credit upon Ver mont which will be known in this af fair quite as much as the gentlemen who drew the prizes. As to whether Vermont makes the best butter in the world there may be a dispute, but thro' the timely action of the Moulton Bros, it stands to her credit in the eyes of mankind that she lias accomplished this, and every pound of butter that bears the Vermont label anl sign manual will be worth more. in theory if not in fact. in the markets of the world. In the third place it reflects credit upon the United States that in a trial of . skill with the nations in this direction it should carry away the spoils of the vic tor. It is a notable success that these o-entlemen have won. and adds to the worth of their methods and the kind of stock they have made use of for their large dairy. predicts war. He says that the Chi nese are preparing defences, gathering material to tit out vessels of war, and to put large armies in the field. He says that they can put 5.000, DUO men into San Francisco as easily as we can out 500.000 there. He was told bv those high in authority that China only wanted ten years to regulate her inside affairs and then she would attend to matters outside. The authorities are fully up in all modem methods and ma terials of warfare. They are a brave people. They cannot be laughed or hooted down. We could do nothing fighting them on their own soil. We might find it hard to beat them off if two or three millions of them should knock at the Golden Gate in their war paint. There are some who insist up on the repeal of the law. ' They .ay this should be done as a matter of jus tice nnd not of fear. Then the ques tion arises, shall we fare any better if the Chinese overrun us in peace than if they conquer us in war? We thought we had done a good thing when we se cured the Burlingmne treaty, but if its provisions remain in force indefinitely we might as well abandon the Pacific Coast and get our grand-children ready to return to their ancestral homes on the other side of the water. But we suppose that the fittest will survive. the details of the plan, Mr. Valentine wished it distinctly uiKlerstooi! that no contracts had been drawn up or deeds ni(,nil. and that he had every reason for believing; that the present plans would lo carriisl out. still there is tbe jsjssibility of failure that every business man rtvognizos liotweeu ar rangements made by word of mouth and the actual fulfilment of contracts. "Mr. Norpleii, the Swedish jjeutle niau who accompanied nit iu my two weeks' tour of investigation, and my self." said Mr. Valentine, 'found more farms in Rutland. Bennington, Wind ham and Windsor counties; which eotiJd ! liought for from S3 to $5 an acre than we needed, yes, double the number. Windham and Windsor county people have held out induce ments sufficient to warrant n trial of the Swedish immigration .plan, anil arrangements to this end have been concluded with the owners of farms in two sections. MASS. POLITICS. The Republican State Convention met iu Treiuont Temple last week to nominate a state ticket. Mass. still believes iu annual elections, and must go through the agony of a campaign this fall. J. .. A. Bracked of Ar lington was nominated for Governor. There has been a close contest between Brackett and Crapo in the selection of delegates, but it seems that the former won the day in a close contest on the first ballot. We have no special knowl edge of the fitness of the candidate se lected, but trust Mass. Republicans to make wise choices. The rest of the ticket was easily filled. A platform was adopted which begins with congrat- THE PROPOSITION made by Windlmm county ptople is ns follows: The v offer, first, to fur nish all the land we want, suitable for our puriseB at from S3 to an acre, the immigrants to pay the taxes and interest money on the purchase price the first year; Rfterthe first year they are to pav $100 tmnuidly, with interest until tbe entire purchase money is paid. The ieople of the comity also agree to furnish one cow for each family (and in some cases to furnish all the cows the farm will supiort.) teams enough todo the work of the colony and if needed to loan each family $23 to help in the pur chase of kitchen and other furniture, and seeds, these being held by the Swedes on the same conditions as the farms." "But who makes this projositiou," asked the rejxirter. "and bow do you know, on the one hand that this as sistance will le rendered the immi grants, and on the other, that the Swedes will fulfill their part of the contract?" "In answer to the first question," said Mr. Valentine, "this promise of assistance wines to us direct from the owners of the farms, who are resjion sible men and who have agreed to the to the condit ions of sale, assistance. eu.

We believe that the best men for the several State oflices are more likely to be secured by a full, free and unprejudiced discussion of the mer its and qualifications of the different persons named or who may be named. Only the politician ami their candi dates will be injured by sunii a discuss ion. The II k;ui.i has no candidate but will support lbr the various offices men whom it believes are best qualified to fill them wilii credit to tlio State. Beliw we give clippings from the Slate press that will help our readers to see the drill of politics at this time : "There is no question but. that a settled policy of elevating lieutenant governors would lower the grade of the chief executive; in fact, it bus done it. it iv is, on the other hand, no gixxl reason why the fact that, a man is lieutenant governor should disoual ify him for the chief ollio;'. llow would it do to choose the nbli st and best HU!n to lill the high pj-teos in the gift of the p-ople reg;irdiessof the of fice f hey no.v hold or the geographical position of their resilience?" St. Johtisbury Caledonian. 'One would naturally supjiose from the vehement manner in which tho Burlington Free Press attacks the Montpelier Watchman for seiulingout. a circular relating; to the subject of promoting lieutenant -governors to be governors, that there was a "nigger in de fence." It was but natural that the Watchmp.il should want to feel of the Vermont Republican pulse before pre scribing medicine for lS'.M). And by most people the Free Press article of luesilay will l taken as an indication of fear. Can it 1r that the Fret Press is under contract to deliver certain goods in 18U0?" White River Junc tion Landmark. 'Vermont republicans projsjse to re serve to themselves entire freedom in the choice of their candidates. They do not intend that the lieutenant-gov ernorship shall be in itself and of ne cessity either a stepping-stone to the governorship or a bar against the gov ernorship. If t he lieutenant-governor is a man of t he standing and character which they desire in their governors, they priMso to be free to take him, or if one who is clearly his superior in in telligence, integrity and exjierieucc. presents himself as a ctuididate, they will be free to take the latter, from private life or from some other office, as soon as from the second place ia the state government." Free Press. The White River Junction Land mark pointedly asks: "Can it lie that the Free Press is under contract to deliver certain goods in ISiHIf Wbv certainly. FverylxKty knows that if tliere is any mside history concern ing the matter it is briefly this: Sever al months ago, when Benodii-t, Henry, Derby, Famham nnd Mason Colburn were pulling every wire to get them selves niqtoiiiteil collector of customs for the district of Vermont Gen. Henry had reason to suppose that Lieut. Gov. Woodbury would lie of some help to him in the contest, or nt least that he would keep out the fight, but in fact W oodbury is said to have lalwretl early and late and done his level best for Benedict, who finally won. Now Benedict has undertaken the large contract of delivering the goods. Whether he succeeds or not will de pond on the extant nnd jowprof of ficial jMjlitieal lxss rule in Vermont. Hardwick Gazetfo. v "In its article on the succession to the governorship, the Free Press makes a distinction that, by reason of its rank illations and ends with promises. It expresses satisfaction w ith the Federal ! dividual instance has he los-t money "t . , , n'i... . ;,, appointments in that State.

If the lieutennnt-governor, our contemiioni rx says, is "a man of standing and character," tiie jsnple "projwse to le free to take him" for the governor ship; but "if one who is clearly his su perior iu intelligence, integrity and exjerience presents himself, they will le free to hike the latter from private life or from some, other otlice." The objection to direct promotion could hardly le more forcibly state,!. If the convention rejects the wndidacy of a lieutenant-governor, it either says to the whole Mate that he is not "a "man of standing and character." or that, the man whom they inniiinide "is clearly the superior"of the lieutenant governor "iu intelligence, integrity and exierienv," This xint requires no elucidation. Past convent ions have seen and felt it.
