The doughty lighter from Rutland secured the gubernatorial nomination. It was a close, sharp, even bitter fight, with a narrow margin. But it n enough. The second ballot brought him a majority of three. His compact organization, with the large lead he had over any single competitor, landed him over the line. Hia estimates cf initial strength were far astray, but Fleetwoods were worse. The Free Press figures given out right after the caucuses were quite accurate, if we ! allow for tbe inevitable drift to the leader ' that followed. Doctor Mead developed a ! more loyal and enthusiastic support than bis opponents conceded him. They i joined him in a real j.illilicatioii and jubi lation when the fltfht was won. The Doctor showed a wi-,e magnanimity in j his acc-ptauce MiMch. Time, willproba ! b!y heal whatever wounds have opened. Candiilnte I'lt-ctwood bora himself well. A. the active rallying p iintot ineanii Mea.l canvass, lie deerved and co mr.nu.l ed support. H was appreciated that, ! having made tbe fUbt sin ijlo handed, be I should I e Riv?n every fair chance to w in. He got the votes of neariy all tbe un 1 pledged dcleitatis opposed to Mead. j The question of the "night before" j was, Will Mead win on first ballot? i That be wuld nearly or quite waa evi dent nt thBt stage. He hBtl a command ' ing lead, and was in position to attract i tbe votes of doubtful ones. There are al j ways some w bo like to follow a probable Iwinuer. With the anti-Mead forces di- tion utterance, response to well defined sentiment on cer tain issues, probably strengthened It aomewbat. The resolutions were present ed at a stage when they received close at tention, and under the care taken to formulate, publish and endorse them, may be accepted aa the clear and unquea tloned mandate of the party. There should be no welching in tbe fall. DeBoer'a fine address and his tact in handling hard situations deepened tbe impression that Vermont baa in him a very strong man. Few could have held tbe close attention of that iweltering con vention for fifty minutes of manuscript reading at that exciting atage aa he did. Frank Greene has a lot of frienda in Vermont who greeted him with fervor when he stood up to read the platform. Frank flushed with genuine pleasure at the ovation. Chairman DeBoer raised a laugh and shout when he said that the convention would proceed with the "first" ballot. i a, it i.t t" veiled tbe Mead men. But DeBoer waa right. Sometimes a sharp crack that raises a laugh counts for more in a popular as semblage than a long argument. Wit ness Frank Greene a handling or J.

Mead's was a Jollification, Fleetwood's a consolation, black, too, came In for a greeting, and was hailed aa governor two yeara hence. Maybe.

The platform reaffirms allfgisnce to the Republican psrty aud aaks for proares along tbe lines made by William Mckin ley, Theodore Roosevelt and W illiam H.

Rob Lawrence's presentation of Doctor Mead was not eloquent, but was well considered. Koger Hulburd made the hit ,f tha i.nnvention in presenting Fleet wood. The Hyde Park man is the most captivating speaker in Vermont. His pleasing personality, rich and well modu lated voice, easy gestures and perfectly turned phrases never fail to win favor for the speaker and his cause. Clarke Fitts' crackling sentences pleased the Batchel der contingent. Hapgood's name was feebly spoken by a fellow Peruvian who didn't seem altogether happy. F.ditors Ho-ve and Belknap were heard in tbe speechifying. Tbeir tarn storm ing tours w ith Mason Stone have mado orat,nrs of them. Hugh Henry, the old war horsn frdm Chester, in bis seconding pcecb, nrouaed Mead enthusiasm by declaring that his oppouenta dealt in calumny and vitupera tion. Tben he proceeded to assail in a i persnt-.al marwpcr an editor whose patriot ism has never been qucaiioned for a chance remark, adroitly and unjustly turned into a slighting reference to "the i little l.runze button." It was a cheap j performance, all through, and when he I seconded Mead in behalf of a "majority" 'of Windsor county, whose 80 votes were ' tbree-foiir.bs against bim, he was an iswered by a chorus of noes from that county's delegates. It is too bad to rob Judge Gibson of whatever pride be may have felt in receiv ing a single vote cn the last ballot for i srnvernnr, but the fact is it waa cast by a Hulburd' Fin Speech. There will probably be no serious dis Bent from the suggeation that the oratori cal bit of tbe Republican state convention was made by Roger W. Hulburd of Hyde Park, in bis speech nominating Fleetwood to be tbe party's candidate for novernor. The people who were there and heard him know this is so, and many others that were not there but know him could expect nothing else ot him. And he disappoints nobody that wishes him well. St".

The Mead peo 1.95 i pie relented tbe imputation and declared tbe attack ill-founded and inconsistent. "Is this the first time there has beva talk of money in Vermont politics?'1 in quired a Mead speaker amid shouts of ap proval. "No, but it ouebt to be the last," remarked one delegate to another. Tbe use of money was, in fact, the issue 1.35 1.75 1 1.00 1.95 1 4.10 He dropped a lieutenant-gov ernor ballot for, the Brattleboro man into tne bat, aud it couldn't be withdrawn. A little attempted "dicker" framed up, it it said, by a Mead delegate from Char lotte or bhelburne, and a Leland enthusi ast from Sprinatieid, failed to carry. After the flrt ballot for governor, all the delegates from Windsor county were in vited into a side room and tbe door shut. Then it was proposed by the Chittenden county man to swap votes from that county for Leland for lieutenant-governor in return for votes fcr Mead on tbe next j ballot. With indignant shouts of "No! : No ! " the Windsor men rushed back into ! tbe ball, and tbe deal was off. I Hauuood wouldn't make it unanimous, ' and went down with his colors flying. It was bad taste and judgment but it was Hapgood'a way. ! For a candidate w ho wasn't a candi- date, it was a testimonial to tbe popular ' strength of Cbarles W. Gates that, in a close fight between leading rivals, he got ' eleven votes. Many others would have 'joined in bad the struggle continued , longer. Gates w as recognized by alias the promising "dark horse" in the event of tie-up. . The Fight Wa Not In Vain. Our objection all along has not been so much on the question of Mead's ability as on his political methods and his refus al to make public his campaign expenses, j The energies of the opposition to Dr. j Mead in this campaign have not been : wholly wasted, wholly vain.
