The Bennington Banner intimate that certain active political workera contem plate getting bold of Dr. Mead'a milking machine and uaing it oo biraaelf. A lad placed oo an operating table at Pittaburg to bave hia appendix removed cared himself by couKbiog up a needle. Now how did a cough atart tbat needle from the appendix T "Uncle Joe" knowa enough to lie down, when be la well licked. He ba always maintained that when a majority wanted to It could override tb apeaker, and An ally, when it waa done, he yielded grace fully. Tb trouble i tbat be baa worked thing along to a pan tbat ba brought a formidable Insurrection ia hia party. It la no small honor that cornea to Ver mont In tb selection of Hon. O. M. Bar ber of Bennington a on of the five Judgea of the newly conatituted federal court of custom, established by the Payue-Aldricb tariff Law. But in Barber Vermont ba a man well fitted by natural oapacity, training and judgment for ao Important a place. The Vermont delega tion scored in landing tbia office for Bar ber, and Barber will acore btuiself a time goes on. Burlington ought to have rapped on wood when crowing about her iruall Are Ions of lent year, ttr the new year bad hardly turned when almost a quarter of a million went up in a single conflagration. It la a bad blow, but the Ion I fairly well covered by Insurance. Hotel Bur lington ought to be succeeded by a new hostelry covering tbat ait and tb Walk er block too, tbat, with tbe Van Neea, would afford ample accommodations for sojourner, in tbe Queen City. We believe a large majority of Vermont Republicans rather regret tbat onr own members in tba House were not among tbe "insurgents" wbo beat Speaker Can non Friday. Tbore is little pro-Cannon sentiment in tbia state that we can dis cover. A canvass made by Sucreaa Maga rine, In the course of a general canvasa of tb nnion to determine tbe drift to Aldrich-Cannonism, resulted in 99 an swer from Vermont, of which 89 were Republican. An overwhelming majority, amount inn almost to unanimity, aaid they preferred their representatives ahouid oppose Cannon, rather than sup port him. Tbia i only a atraw, but is borne out by everything elae tbat devel ops. Can't our members understand, or do tbey understand better than their con stituents and take the responsibility ac cordingly ? CONSTITUTION REVISION. The commission to revise tbe state con stitution, consisting of Frank C. Par tridge, Frank L. (Jreene, Allen M. Fletcher, Willi. N. Ctdy and Matthew O. Leary, has made ita report, which will be published in full in these columns short Ir. This body haa act a good example by Its promptneaa in putting forth it find ings early, o tbat tba recommendations can be fully considered by the people bo tore the coming legislative aeaaion. Tb cominiesion waa authorised by resolution of tbe last general assembly and ba made an exhaustive atudy of tbe w hole anbjeot. It content a itself with eight auggestiona 'of amendment, briefly aummarlred as '0": toe nrni removes me "lime lock ' ao tbat at any legislative cession tb Senate msy propose amendments, Instead of at ten-year periods only.

Some of thee proposal" are radical; other unimportant. Moat or all of them will commend themselves to calm judg ment. THINGS WARMING UP. There have been political developments in the national field tbe past week tbat may bave an Important bearing. First came tbe apeciai meaaage to tbe New York legislature of Governor Hughe relat' ing to the income tax amendment. The New York executive place himself quarely in favor ol uch an amendment to the federal constitution, but And a fatal flaw in tbe article a it i drawn. Aa submitted, tbe amendment gives Con gress tbe right to impose a tax on in comes "from whatever source, derived." Governor Hugbes point out tbat this would make state and municipal bond taxable something that runs counter to all precedent of law, since one govern ment 1 not permitted under our system to tax tbe source of revenue of another. The prevailing opinion I tbat Governor Hughes' objection ia well founded and tbat the proposal of amendment will bave to be redrawn to be acceptable. It i a "setter" on tbe Tsft administration and its legal adviaers, and will lay H open to "loading" tbe amendment in order to In ure II defeat, since tbe income tax prop osition wa merely an alternative oaed to idetrack the corporation tax idea. The Ballinger-Pinchot row ha led to tbe raising of a real issue within tb dominant party. President Taft has tak en a band by "Bring" Plnobot from bl post aa bead of th Bureau of Forestry In tbe Department of Agriculture because Pincbot disobeyed the rule by which beads of department are to report to Congress only through their (uperior. Pincbot had read in the Senate a letter in which hi aid of the controversy with Ballinger waa set forth. With Pincbot went out two of bi subordinate directly concerned In this action. A good deal of significance attache to tbi step, Pincbot' department accused Ballinger, who ia Taft's secretary of the Interior, with complicity In certain alleged govern ment land frauds In the Northwest. Hal linger inatgnantly denied and put it op to tbe president to decide. Taft investi gated, gave Ballinger a clean character and dismissed Pinchot'i investigator, but retained Pincbot on account of bi valua ble service to the government. Tbe con trovor.y continued and finally Taft let It be known tbat be wished Congress to in vestigate ao that no luspicion of favorit Ism could attach and the truth be known. Pending tbia came Pinchot'i step, lead ing to hi di. missal. It almost seems aa if th forester threw down defiance to the president in thi way. Tbe well-known fact tbat Pincbot I one ol Roosevelt's favorite sod strong personal friends in troduce the figure of tbe ex-president to the affray and It will be interesting to note where be will align himself on bis return from Africa. Pincbot assume to' repreeent tb brand of Rooaeveltian re form and virtually accuses Taft of being recreant and of shielding a rascal because the latter belongs to bis cabinet. Taft evidently feels tbat, having pronounced Ballinger blameless, Pincbot and bis aa aoctate ought to subside, and that he canuot longer tolerate inch insubordina tion from an official. Pincbot appeal to tbe public for justice and ia preparing hia case against Ballinger. He ba plenty of atrong support. It tbe row ahouid lead to a break between Taft and Roosevelt, a great deal might happen. 'In this matter tb president ha shown a lack of tact, which was assumed to be hi itrong point, bnt ha haa revealed plenty of de termination and demonstrated that the Taft amile will, at time, oome off. In view of Pincbot' 'arrant conduct, be could not do less than dismiss th officer, whatever tbe outcome. Another episode of the week baa been a signal defeat of Breaker Cannon in tbe House by a coalition of Democrats and Republican insurgents, who took from tb ipeaker tbe right to appoint the House's membership of tbe Ballinger Pincbot investigating committee and made it elective by tbe House. It waa a direct slap at "Uncle Joe" right where it hurt. It ia the first real upset for Can nonism in the House and may lead to further independence of tbe speaker's domination. Tbe fact tbat it followed a plain declaration that insurgent Kepubli rana are to he treated by tbe administra tion the same aa Democrats, deprived of patronage and fought in their own dis tricts Indicates tbat tbey are not to be oared into submission but will assert and maintain their right lo act according to individual judgment and conscience. Th party w hip baa not cracked them into line. Taft is making a great mis take in coming actively to tbe support of Cannon in tbi controversy. Tbe insur gents are not anti-Tart men, and do not recognize the propriety of tbe adminifitra tion'a throwing ita strength to sustain tbe apeaker when party issues are not at stake. There ia a formidable insurrection in tbe Senate, as well as tbe House, and it really has a well-defined response in many part of tbe countrT among tbe people. N j wonder tbe Democrat grin.

Italiana Tried for Assault and Nearoea for Larceny. By the time this report is before tb readers, the term will ba nearly to a close and tb court business will be in progress with divorce cases, which thi term are to be tbe last claaa of oase to be disposed of on tbe docket. Tb folloaring business waa transacted last week: 8 eve vs Alesandro Doraeoico and Frr dinundu tkhettioo assault with intent to kill and murder one Tisi, an Italian padrone living at Wilder and engaged in tbe securing and superintending of Ital ian laborers employed by tbe Internation al Paper company. Tbe respondents are brothers snd live at White River Junc tion and have resided there one for eigbt and another, ten year. On tbe night of August 1, 1U9, an Italian wedding oc curred at Wilder, and tbe colony of Ital iana were present in force it th wedding reception given by the bridegroom at the new home, and beer "ad liliatum" was on tap, and all went well until, in accord I snce w ith s custom In all regular and I well governed Italian wedding receptions. it became necessary tbat one of tbe guests should deposit some candies In the couch of the couple newly united. So funny little Domenico essayed tbe performance of that function, but some of tbe parties more immediately coooerned wanted tbat part tif tb ceremony omitted and the car rying out of this order of omission was assigned to Tisi, whose treatment of tbe matter was heroic, for be dragged and dumped E'omenico out of doors. - Brother Alewodro went to aid Domenico and grabtel Tisi -as be said by tbe throat or as Alesandro said by tbe coat. Up to this point there waa little variance in the version. Tisi said tbat whilo be waa held from the rear by one brotber and in front by auotber, tbat the third, Ferdinando, fired a revolver abot, tbe bul let of which struck Tisi in tbe abdomen. Ibe course of the bullet waa marvelous for it travelled between the inner and outer walls of tbe akin to the left and lodged just underneath tb skin in th back. Tisi said at first tbat th snooting waa done with hia own revolver, but wben the bullet wa removed It waa a 32, while Tisi's weapon wa a 38. So tbat oould not be. Tisi wa ouly (lightly wounded and waa all right in a few data. Tba three respondents all denied tb hav ing of a rorolver or firing ot one though all admitted bearing a shot from some where and there waa quite a crowd out aide at tbe time. Tbe theory cf tbe de fence was tbat some one in tbe crowd must have tired tbe (hot. Tbe respond ent were defended by Charlea Batcbelder and Arthur D. r illipo, a Boston lawyer of iiauan rjiria, a no made a very floe argu ment in delence of bia compatriot. A verdict of "guilty ol limple assault" was rendered and Charles Balcbelder for tbe respondents made an earnest and success ful plea for tba imposing of a flue.. The court sentenced each of th three to pay a Un of f 25 snd costs. On tb trial some citizen of standing at Whit River Junc tion testified tbat two of the respondents bore reputations as good, Isw abiding residents. State vs. William LaCuance, larceny. This respondent was charged with steal ing a livery rig from one Fred Farrington of Quechee, of whom the rig waa hired Jnly 28 last. In tbe evening of tbe day tbe borae and lop carriage were hired tbe respondent exchanged the borae with a man named Latouoha ol Wilder and tbe carriage with a man named Richardson of Norwiob, both of whom were out tbe one a horse and the other a carriage. Respondent sold these articles snd tbey have not np tc thia time been recovered, but Mr. Farrington got back bis borae and carriage. There wai no defenoe and no argument were made. A brief charge was followed By a speedy verdict of guil ty and sentence of not more tban three nor lea tban two year in state prison. maie v.
