Local sportsmen think we are getting some
thing of the marvelous migration of (western
sauirrcis reported elsewhere. A month or even
two weeks ago "grays" were very -carce, and
was almost impossible to find, and now tbe
hunters are having famous luck, and iris no
ticed that they are larger than were ever'fbund
here before, except perhaps 7 years ago when
as one cf the hunters say, western squirrels
were found here for about a fortnight. Tbey
are as large as a small cat, with yellow bellies,
and very shy perhaps because shot a', so much,
and Intsead of "treeing up" like our grays, they
run for a hole.
The Taurus club,after several contests over
the subjectjin tbe past few week, voted to disband
Monday evening. Tbe reason was tbat several
members, (or one cause or another had got tired
of the organization and tbey circulated a pledge
to which they got a majority of tbe members,
twelve, to promise to vote to disband, and tbey
did so with their vote solid. The other mem
bers would not recognize tbe proceeding or the
meeting, and officers pro tcm had to be elected
to carry it through. But all bands, as it is
understood now, will submit, and consider the
thing dissolved. Tbe club, socially and in tbe
way of fringing a bigji order of entertainments
to the town, has filled a useful place in the
community.
- There are no new developments in tbe post
ofllee canvass tais week., thougu ot couisathe
tongue of rumor is busy with any quantity of
absurd reports. JSntlre good nature prevails

for one thing, tbe paper circulating for Mr Be
mis asking for-aiffnatures to tbe staiefneiit tbat
tne otaer petitions oaa oeen stgnca unaer t
"misapprehension. Tbat is not a square or
manly way of putting it; for there was no"rijis
apprehension" with regard to tbe petition for
eitlier Mr Cillds or Mr Fentonand if anybody
wbo signed these wants to cbangc now, it is be
cause of oad feeling that bas grown up over
other appointments or other matters of some
kind, and it is simply ridiculous to state any
thing else. Mr Bemis is too good a man to
have bis canvass belittled by any sucb tactics.
While the Refoiimkh thinks as it bas repeated
ly said, that Mr Childs ought to have the post
oflice, because of his position and service in the
party, and bis experience in tbe business, it has
not a word to say against any other candidate,
and it recognizes their full right as American
citizens to aspire to nonoraoie public employ
ment, and to seek public approval of tbeir am
bition. Its effort has been to prevent any bad
feeling in tbu matter as it tried to do lust week
in pointing out that sotneoi tbe charges against
Mr uemls, accusing mm ot being treacucruus in
first supporting Childs adnd then becoming a
candidate, were not juidilied, because he had
not supported Child", and had frankly express
id to biro in the beginning bij desire for the of
fice. Theso divisions and sore feelings over ap
pointments como from tho hasty, ill-adyUed
way in which charges aro made and tales car
ried back and forth, and we object to this "ro
cantation" paper, because It is carrying these
objectionable tactics to their worst extent. We
hope it may be withdrawn.
' The Mining Investments,
Not all the local stock balden of the Opblr
Needlet Silver mine, are discouraged with their

thing wrong about it. But they insist that it
it In mismanagement, not in the wortlilessnest
of the proporty, wblcb tbey still Insist it
good thing and can and will be made to pay
sometime. Ono of them has tent a man out to
Colorado to look It over within a year and be
Is very confident, from the report received, that
there It a genuine value to tbe mine. Tbe
theory of tho wasteful way It bat been operat
ed, ana tne paralysis tout now teems to navs
taken bold of the business, is tbat there are
some large and influential ttockboldert of tbe
concern wbo want to get control of It, and that
they are trying to worry tbe others out, ana
buy up the stock for a long. It it claimed tbat
this was understood at the Inst ttockboldert'
meeting, and a board of directors elected wbo
will not servo tbe purpose of "bearing" the
stotk. It Is also said ibut only about $13,000
or f 11,000 has thus far been wasted In working
tne mine, roe capital stock is znu.uuu snares,
200,000 of these went to Dcvine and bit "pard"

1X-GOV PAGE DEAD.
Sudden Termination of the Career of a Man
Long Connected with the (Slate's Interests
ilia oood h oik at KiiiiniKi.
From1 our Regular Correspondent.
Rutland, Oct 20, '85,
At an early hour Saturday morning the cltl
zens of Rutland were startled by tne announce-
ment of the death of our highly esteemed cm
zen, Gov John b i'ago. w tin dis demise mo
career of one of the most widely known and
hlchlv resDected men or the entire state, is ter
minated. That be was suffering from an attack
of bronchial pneumonia wat known for some
days previous to bis death, hut as lato ns Fri
day night the attending physicians confidently
expected that be would recover, and when tbe
fatal end camo at 6 :3 o'clock Saturday morn
ing, it was with so little warning, tbat not all of
tne members or ms own ramiiy coutu oo sum'
mnned tn his bodsido before hit sob-it had pass
ed away and be bad gone over to tbat great but
"silent majority." The immediate cause of his
death is thought to have been either cerebral
congestion or the formation or a diooo ciot on
the beart.
John B Page was tbe son of William and
Cynthia Page, and was oorn in uutiana, tea
rtiarv '23. 1826. Hit education in the schools
was of a limited nature, having been finished
at Burr & Burton seminary when be was only
16 years of age : but in the school of life be re
ceived an education, wuioo, suppierncmea oy
an extensive and varied course of reading, ren
dcred bim one of the readiest and most skillful
debaters in the state, and fitted bim for the ac
coinDlishment of those deeds whtch tended in so
large a measnre to promote the welfare alike of
his town and state, in ism no entered me
Bank of Rutland as teller, was elected cashier
in 1818, and president in 1861. In 1860 be was
elected state treasurer and served in that capac
ity until '66. In '67 and '68 he was elected gover
nor. Previous to tots time ne represented Rut
land in tbe legislature in 1832, '53 and '54, and
bis townsmen again called upon bim to fill this
position in 1880. During all these years be bad
been identified with many business interests.
From 1860 to '66 be was trustee of the Rutland
and Bnrlington railroad, and was elected presi
dent of the Rutland (railroad company at the
time of its organization in 1367, and held tbat
position till 1883. For several years he
served as a director Of tbe Central Vermont
railroad, and also of tbe Sullivan
County and Vermont Valley railroads. For a
long time be was director and vice president of
the Champlain Transportation company, and at
one time a director and vice president of the
New York and West Shore road. Perhaps the
most important local business enterprise in
which Gov Page was interested, is tbe Howe
Scale company. He was connected with tbe
corporation while it was located in Brandon,
and it ws largely due to bis efforts tbat the in
dustry was moved to Rutland, at which time be
became its treasurer, ana suosequentty us presi
dent, which position he held at tbe time of bis
death. He always manifested great interest in
religious and educational institutions and in tbe
development of whatever would improve tho
prosperity of tne town wuere ne nau always
reaiifprl. Thn fir a rip.nartmpnt. as at tire.sent
constituted, owes Its organization largely to bis
efforts. Ho was a member of the first engine
company organized in tbe town, and was for
several years' the chief engineer of the Rutland
tire department. In 1808 be united with the
Congregational church, and its interests were
ever after dear to bis beart. He was liberal in
bit pecuniary support of tbe churcb, wise In hi
counsels to mat Doay anu prompt lnspeecnana
action to uphold the great trntba whicb be be
lieved. All auxiliaries to church work found
In him an earnest supporter. For 13 years be
has been a member of tbe corporation of Mid
dlebury college, and of Burr and Burton sem
inary. In 1871, '72, '73 and '74 he visited
Europe, where his first wife, Mary A Reynolds,
died. She was tbe mother of bis children,
William R. Edward D and Helen LPage. His
second wife. Harriet E Smith, with four chil
dren, survives bim. Gov Page bad mingled
much with tbe world, and, like all men endowed
bv nature with the qualities ror leading in ac.
Hon and shaping public opinion, aspired with
laudablo ambition to tbe position of leadership,
and while bis lie t friends do not claim for him
perfection, it is admitted on all sides that bo
was the subject of unjust criticism and cruel,
treacherous attacks, all of which bo endured
with a calmness of spirit born of conscious in
tcgrity, and betokening tbat noble nature which
bus proved estimable among men, and, as we
believe, acceptable to toe uou wtiom oe wor
shipped. ,

Tub action of Princo Bismarck in asking
Pope Leo XIII to act as mediator between Ger
many and Spain on the Caroline islands ques
tion is not only an uncommonly shrewd politi
cal movement as regards tbe internal affairs of
Germany, but it is one which may con tain vast
poHibilities of good for all Europe. For two
years past it has been evident that Bismarck,
with wbom state craft consists in making com
binations of one and all political parties to suit
nis temporary purposes, was figuring to use tne
Clerical party. A few weeks ago a convention
was held at Munster to resist tbis manipulation,
but Bismarck in thns going to tbe Pope in tbis
case has taken the wind out of it, and it is be
yond doubt now that tbe effect on the Catholic
voters will be tbe return of as many Clerical
members of parliament subservient to hit pur
poses as be wants. But beyond and I etter than
tbis is the effect it will have in securing the
peace ot Europe. Pope Leo, in bis public
statements, has repeatedly claimed that it was
this special function which he hoped to bave
all the governments of Europe acknowledge by
applying to bim for his mediation as a means
ot averting recourse to arms, and this ac
knowledgement of the claim by the greatest
statesman and the most powerful government
of Europe is tbe highest acknowledgement of
papal dignity that bas been given in the last fif
teen years.

Bellows Falls, Oct 27, 1885.
The death ol one of our townsmen Edward D
Murphy, took place at his home on Rocking
ham street after an Illness of two weeks of cap
illary bronchitis. Up to Tuesday evening
hopes had been entertained that be would pull
through, but tbat night he had a change for the
worse ana Bang rapiuiy.
T wo weeks ago ne went to Ciaremont to
make arrangements for a play he was soon to
produce there, and slept in a cold room where
he caught a serious cold wbich brought oa the
sickness whicb terminated in bis death.
El ward D Murphy was born in Youghal.
County Cork, Ireland in August 1845 and was
tbe youngest of nve children all of whom
diod previous to tbat date. About this time bit
father died and bis mother came with her in
fant son to New York where she subsequently
married again.
Soon after this tbe family moved to West
minster and, it waa there that Ed received the
injury which deformed bim for life;, be was at
school and a number of the boys were at play
and be received a kick from one of them in the
back which caused curviture of the spine and
finally resulted in hunch back.
From there be went to Rutland and in 1858
returned again to tbis village where he has
since resided. In 1859 he began as nowshnv on
tbe Sullivan and Valley It R, ,and since then
bas never missed but one wintcr.on tbe road.
lie was married in 1878 to Miss Noia Dig-
gins wbo still survives bim. During the past
three winters he has acted as local dramatic
manager here and was also manne r and part
owner in B j u skating ball. Mr Murphy bas
been for years on tbe road and was widely
known and respee'ed. He had received only a
cuniwon Knuui ouucitiion Dai wak natural lv
bright and talkative and derived great benefit
from general reading and from tbe varied asso
ciates he camo in contact with.
The funeral was held in St Charles Catholic
church Sunday morning and wat the largest
ever seen here a'l denominations turning out to
attend tbe last sad rites ; fully one thousand
were in attendance. As a tribute to bis mem
ory tbe Bellows Falls band attended in a body
and played to tbe grave. Tbe flowers were
very beautiful and consisted of a pillow of tube
roses and smilax, a shaft of white roses, a
wreath of ivy and a basket of flowers.
