The New York ludge will Head the Democratic Ticket* From dispatches in this morning's papers it is evident that Judge Par ker, of New York, will be nominat ed by the democrats for the presi dency. He will probably be nomi nated to-day on the second ballot. Several favorite sons will get votes the tiret call, but atter that they will most go to Parker so it is said. Those against the Judge made a strong fight, but now that his nom ination seems assured, they will snpport him. Senator Turner, of the state of Washington, seems to be in the lead for the vice presidency, and he will probably win. If Parker is nominated the big fight of the election will be in New York, Indiana, New Jersey and . Wisconsin. Parker will have to oil practically carry all these to win Roosevelt. Tammany has said over all along that the Judge cannot his own state, but other dem carry oeratic leaders think he can. Bryan Not a Dead One. If anybody thinks W. J.

Some six weeks ago a fellow came to Montpelier purporting to repre sent Collier's Weekly. He had a complete agent's outfit, and succeed ed in collecting several dollars in this c'ty. Now comes word that he was a fraud and those who paid monev to him are that much out. It looks a little strange that a fraud could lie so well equipped with printed matter, samples, etc., without the company's knowledge. Yet this fellow was and he cleaned up several dollars here. The act of the Sixth legislature, approved March 16, 1901, providing for the licensing of peddlers, hawk ers and solicitors, has, with the ex ception of section 8, been declared constitutional by the supreme court, Must Have License* The section rejected seeks to confine the taking of orders sola to mer chants only. This, the court holds, is class legislation and in contraven tion of both federal and state consti the tutions, both as the remaining part of the act is capable of being en forced in accordance with the legis- p lative intent, wholly independent of that provision, the provision is re- j jected therefrom and the remaining j go part of the act permitted to stand.

''The phrase 'taking orders,' as used in the 8th section of said act, does not contemplate that the run ner shall have the goods with him at the time of the sale, but in the common acception of the phrase, the agent or runner sells the goods by sample, taking orders therefor, and thereafter delivers the goods.
