It is stated that the recent visit of King
Edward VII to 1'aris is the first time an
English king has viHited there since l.V.'O,
when Henry VIII and Francis I met.
Queen Victoria, however, visited 1'aris
during her reign.
After finishing a tour of inspection in
the United States General Baden-J'owell
said that while the United .States cavalry
horses are superb the men are not up to
his expectations in vhvsidue. We are
sorry to loarn that but General Baden-
Powell will have to admit that the United
tstates cavalrymen can fight for all that.
Allen M. Fletcher, the representative to
the legislature from Cavendish, a banker
and good all around man, has been spoken
of for governor. Mr. Fletcher gained con
siderable of a reputation at the legislature
by conscientious work on the lieenselaw
and by characterizing himself as "we
farmers." But it is stated that he does
carry on a small garden so that it is pos
sible for hiin to style himself a fanner.
Mr. Fletcher is not one of the impossibles.

Says the Kutland Herald: "There is
another point suggested iu the vigorous
enforcement of the new law. Our prohi
bition friends are quoting the number of
arrests for drunkenness as an argument
against the law. It would be a good point
to make if the old law had been enforced
"We are not arguing that Montpelier is
proving the superiority of license over no
lieense. It Is too early for a judgment on
that point; but we are pleased to see the
prohibits admit that the Montpelier peo
ple propose to have the new statute re
pected and its violators punished."
The system of compulsory arbitration
received a hard ran in New Zealand re
cently. A difficulty over wages in a cab
inet making establishment arose and the
Arbitration Court decided in favor of the
men, whose wages were raised to Is 8d
an hour. After that decision the em
ployers declared that they were unable to
do business at the new rates and a lock
out followed. Action was taken against
the employers for breach of award. Now
ihA Arbitration Court has dismissed the
cases against the employers after a com
plete hearing. This action of the Xew
Zealand Arbitration Court is equivalent to
a confession that its workings are im
practicable. It certainly belies its name
as a compulsory court of arbitration.

A Question to Tux Payer.
Editor Times: I would like to ask the
citizens of Barre what we pay taxes for.
I want to know If we pay taxes to see a
woman and five children starve, two of
the children being sick, .lust because
she don't want to go to the poor farm,
and althouirh she is willing to work for
her own rent. I want to find out if the
overseer of the poor has the right to use
people as he wants and use bad language
to them, when It is a mistake on his own
This I have said, I can prove.
