On. month blrnrl opy FRANK E. LAN'GI.EY. PublUhaf THK HARRIS CAUCUS. Whatever tlieir iiHi!iutiona and rneui leetions n to ounliiliiti'M, the voters of llurre. hIioiiIiI feel it ltnir duty to attend the citizens' canon thin evoninjf for the purpose of nominating candidates to be voted for at the municipal election next month. Their whole oblation of citi zenship ift by no means confined to mere voting for candidates when those candi dates have been named by someone else, but that duty includes also the business of selecting the candidates. A complete municipal ticket is to be named for all the elective oflioCH in the which vacancies are to occur by reason of the expiration of the terms of the present encumbents, and if the voters of Barre wish to take advantage of their opportunity and right to co-operate in selecting those candi dates they have only to attend the cau cus this evening. And what is true uf the citizens' municipal caucus to-night, is equally true of the live ward caucuses to be held to-morrow (Friday) evening to nominate candidates for aldermen and school commissioners. There should bo, relatively, as largo attendances at every, one of the five ward caucuses as nt the municipal caucus. The latter is to be held in the opera house and will begin at 7:30 o'clock. We repeat (and it is something which The Times urges each year) that the voters should turn out for this privilege of selection of candidate!. The North Main street grocer has doubly rat-ifled currency. As yet no catboat or rowboat has hoisted the Stars and Stripes. The agitation for an agricultural agent for 'VVaahingtou county should not. and doubtless will not, be allowed to subside until the services of such an official are assured. The Morrisville Mwapngcr may calm itself, now that the Senate has accepted TA'alter A. Button. The contemporary went through quite a spasm because the Senate delayed. The bread lines in the large cities aie forcible reminders to people who have been sending alms out of the United States that they also have a home prob lem that is becoming very acute. Montpelier's fire department chief has asked for an automobile combination truck, and from a distance siv miles away we should say that the desire should be satisfied, for Montpclier lms some even longer and harder runs than Fiarre has. , It is "Walter A. Dutton, public service commissioner," in fact; and the Seimt.', by confirming Governor (iates appoint ment of the Hard wick man, assured the state of a man who can le trusted in the position and who will give his best effort to the Work devolving Umn him. Pid it occur to Mr. Hapgood of Peni while he was speaking almut 1iime1f from the floor of the Houm- yesterday that he was wasting the state's time which ought to have been devoted to the routine of legislative business rattier than to the introi-e lion of a member, whether that int roieit ion be seriously minded or frivolous! He ua guing con trariwise to one of his own favorite theories, that time should lie given to chi examination of every measure, in asmuch a he was mskiiu; such evamina tion impossible by reason of a lot of drir1 alfont himself. was unknown. Vet the hanging were carried out and the lives so taken could not be restored. There ia nothing lilto so barbarous and nothing quite so hall' cocked in judicial procedure in the pres ent day, we are likely to agree; but even under the advanced methods of de termining real guilt and the greater re gard for the sanctity of human life there nevertheless is such a margin of chaste for mistake in convicting for major of fenses that the mind shudders at the thought of infliction of the death penalty unless in the most positive instances uf proven guilt, and even then there is .t certain revulsion of feeling against the sacrifice of human life, however worthless. Second Rehearsal of Choral Society. Owing to the use of the Montpelicr city hall by the Flying Squadron, the second rehearsal of the society last even ing was held in the Kcllogg-Hubhard li brary, Montpclier. The attendance was hirjre, tilling the hall completely, indi cating a gratifying increase in member ship. The evening was spent in tin study of the "Daughter of .lairus," "A Tale of Old Japan," and "Fair Kllcn." Mr. Coffin expressed gratification in the fact that the chorus were becoming so proficient in sight reading, which was apparent to all that had followed the progress of the society. This, he thought, was the surest indication of the benefit in n musical wav of the society to the community, since' it showed advancement, confidence, ami ability to.inierpret reu ilv new selections. 'j. W. Wood, choral director, of Nash ua, Nr. H., was present and praised the work of the chorus, it being the best work of its kind that he had witnessed at the beginning of a season's rehearsals and reflects great credit upon the ability of the chorus in musical interpretation. President Sibley addressed the chorus respecting the year's work and urged all to keep up the effort already begun, stating that the community were indors ing the work of the society as was evi denced by the willingness of the citizens to subscribe to the guarantee fund. In the meeting of the executive com mittee held after the rtdiarsal the mas ter of increasing the male membership was discussd in order to give effective rendition to Schubert's "Omnipotence," considered to be the best male choral work- written. The idan of havincr vocal or instrumental solos by local people during the intermission at reiiearsais was adopted and the committee designated Mrs. (ieorge W. Wing to have this in charge. All memliers are urged to be at Montpclier city hall next week at 8 p. in. WEBSTER VILLE The Saturday nialit train running to East Harre ami Oaniteville will reverse li. frin on Saturday.
