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!.

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

than to the introi-e lion of a member,

minded or frivolous! He ua guing con

so barbarous and nothing quite so hall'

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.
