Time to will it off, we gues. So Mayor Bigelow of Burlington won't have a ruction inside of his party when he comes before the people at the poll next month, th? withdrawal of TV. B. McKillip having left the field for the mayoralty to himself and to Jame E. Burke. That ought to have a lightening effect on the load which Bigelow has got to carry, but even then there is nothing certain that the perpetual candidate won't step in and capture the prize. Whatever the. reasons for his act, the withdrawal of Mr. McKillip (tins early in the campaign was a very nice thing to do, event as the Burlington Free Pies no ardently stated it. About the 23d of last January, the seiHoiographs throughout the world re corded a great earioquake, but couldn't locate it. Day passed and the time lengthened into weeks; and now comes tlx1 confirmation of the seismograph record in the story of the terrible devas tatiou by nature's upheaval in the. in terior of Asiatic countries. The remark able accuracy of the seismograph needs now to be supplemented with the capa bility to locate the earthquake, and tlien we shall have our knowledge of earth quakas rather complete except! per haps the undisputed knowledge of thei cane, although the majority of scientists have come to an understanding on the matter. 'Ir! '' pjP' vv W ' ' OlMIIMIIII) Secession to Cleveland is almost threatened in Boston because the Ame cari league base ball club has dispensed with the services of Denton Teeumseh Young, the "grand old man" of base ball Judging by the amount of street talk and newspaper eommeiit, nothing , has recently struck Boston so heavy a blow as this transfer to the Cleveland club, The staid newspapers and the leaders in public lhe are cont ributing their protest; some mild, other vigorous, and a consid erable number insistent that a great in justice has been done to themselves as well as to the ball player who has been turned loose whan hia days of usefulness seemed to be mi the wane. The wave of protest will subside eventually, and Bos ton will resume her normal composure; but ' it will be years before base ball means just the same to the people who have been seeing this veteran twirl the ball year after year, and, by his actions, assist in making the game of hase ball worthy of the interest ot the best Amert can people. Young has made himself rich by his good right arm, and he does not need to play base ball; but perhaps he may have some objections to being kicked out the back door as unceremoni ously as his ownerg treated him. ' ' GREGARIOUS VERMOXTERS. Perhaps the people of no state in the Union retain their home tics go strongly as do those Vcrmonters who journey into distant sections because of various at tractions. Certainly the people of no state have so many old home associa tions, relative to population, as have Vermont?rs. About the first thing that Vermonters do when they get settled in their new locations is to look about them for Mlow-Vermonters with whom to talk over old times back in the Green Mountain stats, end this desire for get ting together leads naturally toward the formation of Vermont associations, the number of which is yearly multiplying. Ine latest Vermont association to come to our attention is the "Vermont Asso ciation of Alameda County, California," and the secretary writes that tlie club u desirous of enrolling all natives and former residents of Vermont who are )t present living in Alameda county. : ! i r fore f he attention of people back in T i:ont is directed toward en gaging any of their relatives now in :im da county into applying for rmm "hip in the new organization. Al- ;idy seventy Vcrmonters are on the lumbers hip list, and the club expects many mare, as there are many persons! dig;We in the'eitie of Oakland, Berk ley, Alameda and Fruitvale, besides some in the smaller communities. The iaitial nvetlrg of the association was held at j aklaid n February 8, at which time John E. Fes, formerly ef Burlington, We do not claim to be the only clothing store that can satisfy particular men.

I ! CURRENT COMMENT The Beginning of the End. Rev. Dr. Ozora 8. Davis, the disting uished Vermonter, who hts just fle et ptd the presidency of Chicago Theo logical Seminary, began his career as rt telegraph messenger boy at White River .lumtion, and is protarJy the only telegraph operator in ' the coun try, who .has rimjn to the position of president ot a theological school. . Jle tells a good story on himself of visit' ing a newspaper office in the Connecti cut 'alley to see a college classmate who was the sporting editor of the. pa per. The latter introduced Dr. Davis to tlie versatile telegraph operator and thev had a most friendlv visit, which ended by the telegraph operator being invited by the sporting editor to come. i.s this to be wondered at. A ytem under which a bank president i alleg ed to have furnished bribe money to coiimilineii in ordijr that hi Inink might be named a one of the deposit ories of the c"ity funds, and under which the aforesaid brile money is said to have Wo accepted with avid ity, may le rrHsonably suspected of more de-iperate sclieme'o, even to thi; extent-of tampering with a jury. The serious cotii'(jiience, in the 4clut of detection, of an attempt at. jury-fix-ing appears to have been disregarded by the alleged gratters in tho extrem ity to which they have Wn driven, Tlie court, too. in full knowledge of it , such an attempt, evidently has an eve t . L : e . , suifjif; vn ini- nri-iiring 01 justice in Ine case in hand; and. so far a outside efforts to pervert that justice mav xi concerned, to place pendant reliance in the proverbial ""ounce of prevention." iiHiiciiestor l nion.

The -grief felt over the death of a longtime companion is told in the fol lowing tribute to the late Charles C. Mams-dell, foreman of The Times, by C. 15. Putnam, a newspaper man, who had served twijnty years side by side with him : "No grief can be more poignant than that of one who has leen an intimate associate in thie nerve-racking grind of newspaper life for twenty or more vears, when be bhrns of the death of his mate. That grief is felt by the writer as be reads in the Journal and the Barre Times trilmtes to the mem ory of Charles C Kamdc)l, ho died lat Sunday. The event is too recent and feelings are too much wroucht up to write as he erm; like to write of his old friend. Mr. r.nmdeli was all, and more tlmn all. that has been said of him. This is all the writer can now sy, but hopes Inter to pay a tribute to his lamented fellow- ork."
