The reduction of the steerage rate on the German and Dutch lines from Ku rope to Canada from $40 to $30 proiniw to bring the immigrants that Canada needs. It can be expected, too, that some of the immigrants will come over the line perhaps into Vermont, where there is land to be tilled. Montreal, the chief port of entry for Canada, is so near the Vermont line that a consider able portion of the incomers might be di rected this way.

Pane for assessor for one year and Willium Jones placed the name of Thomas Me- Donald in nomination, the latter with drawing. Mr. 1'uge said he had served the city In a similar capacity for five years and thought he had contributed his share to the office.

During a lull in the proceeding, Henry Alexander nominated James urogan for second constable. Mr. Gordon wished to thrust the honor aside and nominated Mr. Alexander. The former's request to withdraw was refused and the secretary was instructed to cast a unanimous vote for the first nominee. Just. before ad journment. Mr. Grogan again addressed to the chair his objection to the nomina tion and moved that he be allowed to withdraw. His motion was seconded, but the answering chorus of "no's' drowned further protest and Mr. Grogau was declared to be the nominee of the meeting. 1 lie city ticket completed, someone brought up the question of aldermanic timber. Mr. Russell didn't think it should be handled at that time and moved " that ward committees be ap pointed to interview different men with reference to their attitude on the plat form adopted.

There are buildings which are called fireproof and which really do ap proach the state of being impervious to fire, yet which in the supreme test would be found wanting in the qualities of re sisting the flames. Were such a bill to become a law, there would be a fina distinction between what is and what isn't fireproof. A SUGGESTION'. If the Vermont House of Represents fives is called upon to elect a speaker at the end of the present session, when Speaker Plumley resigns to become state tax commissioner, why not confer the honor on Representative Weeks of Mid dlebury? Weeks was prominently men tioned at the outset of the session as a possible candidate and a man of legisla tive experience and wide acquaintance throughout the state. He would be a good man to have in charge of the. House provided a special session should be called during the next year and a half, or during the remainder of the bi ennial term. ought to be non -political in its nature, for the bast interests of the state can be served only by putting on it the best available men.

FEDERAL TAXATIOV OX COXXECTI CUT RIVER. An important measure to Xew Eng land is to be taken up in the United States Senate next Tuesday, it relating to the right of the federal government to impose a tax on the hydro-electric power on the Connecticut rive. In commenting on the proposition, the Springfield Republican, which represents a territory perhaps most vitally inter ested, lets it be known that the tsx is not opposed. On the eontrary, say the contemporary, "The reg;on most direct ly concerned, let the senators remem ber, has no objection to the clause pro viding for an annual federal tax on the hydro-electric power generated. The is sue is important and this valley stxmls for federalism." Indeed, there has been little or no objection to the prnpos tion manifested in any of the Xew EnglanI states, so far as we have been able to learn. .. Fireproof Building Regulations. Representative Flynn of Dorset pro pose that all fire proof buildings erected I f snouia da exempt irom taxation ior a period of five vears after construction Mr. Flynn is a most valuable member of the House and has proposed a good many measures of merit. We doubt, however, the wisdom of enacting this particular measure. It is in the hands of every municipality to determine the character of structures that may be erected. There seems to be suflieient law on the subject now. As far as ex emptions from taxation are concerned, there is much danger of carrying this policy too far. It ha been carried too far in Rutland, and, presumably, in many other towns in Vermont. There are buildings in this city to-day that contribute no public revenue and yet which are a source of revenue to the as sociations that own them. Rutland News. CURRENT COMMENT Charles D. Watson. In appointing Charles I). Watson to te long term on the puhlie service com mission, flnvemor Fletcher made mif that probably will be commended in all aeitions of the state. It naturally rauae joy in the lVmorratic camp, for Mr. Watson i recognised as one ol the leaders of that party, and tht can be no aerioua objections among Re publicans, for the public aerv.ee boail S. S. Russell. It is a matter of gratification for his many friends that S. S. Russell bas re ceived the recognition that has come to lum in his appointment as general .tun- erintendent of transportation of the Central Vermont Railway company. In a way this is a new post created on the Central Vermont in line with the pol icy the new president, Edson J. Cham- berlin, ras recently put into effect on the. brand trunk, (of which line be is also head), which he some time ago inaugurat ed on the Grand Trunk Pacific. Some time ago the Central had a superin tendent of transportation in William K. Mullin, but the post has not existed for some time. It me&ns that Mr. Rus sell is at the head of the transportation department of the road, being in charge of the division superintendents and re porting direct to the general manager, For the younger railroad men there i, in this advancement of 'Mr. Rucll, a direct example of the results of imlus try, and there is also an incentive to close application to duty. . As one of Vermont s highest railroad official has said, there are plenty of chances higher up for the richt kind of men. what is neded is good contention work with the proper directing mental force. Mr. Kuatell ha won his wsy to the front in thia verv wav and it is comment eoouch on hi efficiency to know that be ha l ceived this appointment at the hands of Mich railroad heads as (. C. Jones iid K. .1. Chamlerlin. Mr. RneII comes into hi new office with a thorough knowledge of railroad ing learned by a coure of many years in the school of experience.

St, Albans Messenger. ment. Several . thought that anyone should be allowed to vote for the ticket or for individual names on the ticket so long as the Labor and Socialist candi dates continued to subscribe to the plat form. A ruling was virtually made which forbids candidates going before the caucus, although tney were given per mission to receive support unsolicited anyone. The question had been threshed out in the joint meeting, it was said, and final agreement was reached to keep the names out of the citizens' caucus James Gall explained that insofar ns Socialists were concerned it was against the constitution to go into the general caucus. Martin Kiley didn t believe in that kind of doctrine, he said, and he asked if he were in a Socialist meeting. Mr. Gall rejoined by way of further ex planation that the Socialists had al ready violated their constitution. . I he local, he continued, had reached a point where it could see that the constitution must lie revised, however. John Tier- ney deplored a situation that prevented an American citizen from going to a citizens' caucus. Mr. Tage's remarks carried a similar sentiment. Refore the arguments pro and con had beeu given, Kric Pine had made a motion that the ticket be kept, out of the citizcns cau cus and when the question was called, his motion was carried. Adjournment followed, the meeting to reconvene next Thursday evening at 7:30 o'clock. wich university: relating to taxation o telegraph companies; enabling towns to appropriate money for agricultural ex tension workj relating to toll bridges was passed. House Killed Primary Bill. The House had considerable debate yesterday afternoon over its direct pri mary bill, the matter coming up as unfinished business from the forenoon session. Mr. Cook of Lyndon referred to a town of loO voters which has been controlled by a half dozen of the num ber not bought, but cajoled. Better for the voters to cast their ballots in primary at home than to send their votes by delegate to a convention, only to later. find that such vote had mis carried. On motion of Mr. Martin of Benning ton, the date for holding primaries was changed Jrom July to May. A motion by Mr. Martin to give the minority party one dolegate for each 50 votea cast at the previous election and one for each town was lost. Mr. Watson of St. Albans said he de sired before being declared insane, to enter his solemn protest against thu measure, which bad been amended out of shape to such an extent that its parent could not recognize it. "No man in this house will violate his party pledge by voting against it," he said, "and I sin cerely hope it . will be killed." Mr. Crosby of Brattleboro favored it. Mr. Jose stated rf this bill goes to third reading he should move to amend as before mentioned; if it fails, he will introduce what he considers a primary bill correct in principle. Mr. Flynn of Dorset refused to sup port a bill which compelled voter ti hold up his hands to be tied. Mr.i Kvder of Kockingham charged the Democrats with being the beneficiaries if the Republicans failed to pass a pri mary measure. Mr. Watson asked Mr. Ryder if tho Democrats of thia legislature fell be hind in support of the trustee bill, anJ, in fact, all the good legislation proposed by the Republican executive. "Unitedly, the Democrats will support a real pri mary, but you have not one yet, when you or any party present such a meas ure, I will support it." On the question, shall the bill be rend the third time, Mr. Hulett of Rutland City desired the yeas and nays. Thy were: Yeas 53, nays loo. Then S.

By a vote of 46 to 85 the House killed the bill relating to the sale of commodi ties. . Mew Bills in House.

The Senate bill relating to appoint ment of license commissioners was tak en up by the House late in the after noon, Mr. Ryder opposed the measure as vicious in the extreme. Mr. Brigham f Bradford explained the bill, which came trom bis committee, as a com posite measure made up of the good points of three bills which came be fore tha committee. He advocated re moving the appointments from politics and the courts. Mr. Miller of Bethel asked that it be ordered to lie and made a special order for Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, which was defeated. Mr. Donnelly of Vergennea favored a state commission of three.
