Someone "Seein" Things." The Orleans County .Monitor appeared in red war paint last week against "the very apparent triple alliance m the Re publican party of Vermont, Clement-Dillingham-Dunnett." It gives as con clusive evidence of the alliance these statements: "Mr. Clement's paper, the Rutland Her ald, early camu out for Dillingham and last week approved in laudatory terms the candidacy of Mr. Dunnett. That Dunnett is for Dillingham has been made plain to those in conversa tion with Mr. Dunnett. That Mr. Dil lingham favors Clement and Dunnett goes without saying." "That Mr. Dillingham favors Clement and Dunnett" will have to go without "saying," if truth is to be spoken. Sen. Dillingham' county will undoubtedly send a solid delegation in support of John W. Gordon for Congress which will not lw much help to Mr. Dunnett. There is no evidence whatever that Sen. Dil lingham favor or is promoting in any way the candidacy of Mr. Clement for the governorship. Mr. Dunnett will not be found involved in the senatorial tight in any war. As for Mr. Clement it is true that hia paper favors the re-election of Sen. Dillingham and has t-poken m favorable terms of Mr. Dunnett. But it did so without promise or intimation of support of these men in his candidacy. In fact Mr. Clement had not decided to become a candidate for the governor ship when his paper announced its sup port or -Mr. Dillingham. The evidence ot the Monitor is not conclusive. It is no evidence at all. If it is anything it in the vaporing of Porter H. Dale, who has been seem tilings ot late. Neither Sen. Dillingham nor Mr. Clement has had a word with Mr. Dun nett. The weakness of Mr. Dale's cau didacy is shown by the baseless charge he and his supporters are making against Mr. Dunnett. St. Johnnbury Caledonian. A Man of Sorrows. If'tRen12iralnfl-Jwl"aB" tie utC3, the aged emperor of Austria lies dying. Francis Joseph has reigned longer than any sovereign in history save Louis XIV of France. The upheaval of 184S, the year ot revolution in continental Europe. placed him on the throne ot the Haps burgs. . A conservative by heritage, he gradually tended toward a liberal policy, which resulted in the transtorniation ol the Austrian empire into a dual mon archy having rebellious Hungary aa co-ordinate part. His 'wise moderation won him the respect of his subjects, di vided as they are in race, language, and temperament, and through all the exter nal I e verses of hia reign, the successful revolt of his Italian dominions, sum mary defeat in war with Prussia, he succeeded in holding together the hetero geneous Austro-Hungarian empire. Dilhcult as has been Ins public lite, the woes of his private life have almost surpassed belief.. The death bv violence of hia only son, his wile, and the neph ew that stood next in the line ot suc cession have been only the most eonspic nous calamities of his troubled exist ence. There must be a Spartan indif ference to pain or an incomparably vie torious philosophy in a man who can resist for more than fourscore yeais the trials that in ruthless succession have been the part of Francis Joseph. For years ho has lived in the conscious ness that the veneration of his charact er and age inspired has alone kept his divided empire from at least attempted disruption. He dies in the midst of the crudest war of modern times and in the knowledge that for the delectation of all history his poor land has had forced upon it the ignominious role of cats-paw. As he faces the ultimate ad- enture his lips may well lorm the cyni cal words of Louis XV., drained of all but tragedy, "After me the deluge." New York Globe.

Hoker Was in Europe When War Broke Out. George K. Hooker, secretary of the Civ rlub in Chicago, will leave for his home this evening, after a short visit with his brother, B. W". Hooker, of Park street. Mr. Hooker is a member of the commission appointed by Mayor Carter Harrison of (Tiicago to study terminal facilities in Europe thia summer. Their report on findings in Europe is to be followed bv the erection of a new y.iO.lWKl ailroad station in Chicago. When the war announcements began to arouse the entire population of Europe Mr. Hooker and other members of the commission were in Taris. There they witnessed manifestations of the first panicky feei ng occasioned by the imnnnency of war between France and Germany. Before they had left the French capital for Ant werp, the feeling had subsided into a grim determination to resist the t.er- mans to the bitter end. The commission reached Antwerp in time to h,-ar tne hell in the city cathedral sound for the mobilization of Belgian troops. Afterwards tru party proceeded to Ostend, and thence to Dover, where they crossed the English channel ami engaged trans-Atlantic accommodations on the Maorctania.

They arrived in New York lat Sunday afternoon. Happily the party was in the front guard of thousands of American tourits who hstily left the continent lien hostil ities broke out. Otherwise the trying experiences which thry rxperi need would hate been greatly augmented. HAS 55 ASSURANCES (For John W. Gordon's Nomination for Representative in Congress.

The burlesque game of soccer football eld under the auspices of the Barr Rangers and tho Bonaccord clubs at the Berlin street grounds late yesterday aft ernoon for a special benefit was an even acratcr success than was anticipated. The scientific game was conspicuous by its absence. The hordes of players en tertained an especially large audience for nearly two hours with their ridic ulous and funny antics. The teams were selected from the Rangers and Bonaccord clubs, assisted by large corps of reserves. The contest ended with an equalized score, 2 all. During the time allotted for the game the "fun makers were in their element and extracted laugh after laugh from the gallery of spectators, who were loud in their praise of the un dertaking. , The players assembled in the Clan Gordon rooms shortly after 5 o'clock. I Headed by the Milne and Sims band' about forty players, costumed in ludi crous make-ups, such as clowns, brun- rttes, hoboes, policemen, negroes, I'hlands, Cossacks, Yiddishers, cowboys, etc., marched through the main thorough fare to Berlin street. A large crowd fol lowed in the wake of the players. Im mediately on arriving at the grounds the ball was set in play by Harry Gordon, who acted as referee. His decisions were never questioned and he handled the players with a vigorous hand. Shortly "after the ball was set in play the captains of the two teams called on reserves, who rushed into the field of action. At certain intervals it is es timated that forty players were participating in the contest, probably a teat that win no entered as a recora for the game of soccer football. Financially the game was one of the biggest successes ever undertaken by ioral foothallist. The committee from the Rangers and Bonaccord clubs worked in conjunction to make the affair suc cessful.
