If tbe "plan'' ta carried out, certainly no one will have cause to Sod fault exoept those candidates woo get left, as some must. Seats the People. fFrom the Springfield Republican. The MontDeller Arcua and Patriot mmrnpu the Windham county plau of allowing the people to decide by ballot between the rival Democratic candidates for appointment ns postmaster. This will surprise nobody tl Vermont or ou'.stde of It. Bourbonlxm grows very slowly and then only under pressure.

TFrom tbe Poultney Journal.l - Tbe discussion tbat appeared In thn P.r.ttlo. boro Reformer and some other state papers for tbe last two weeks concerning the selec tion of a postmaster wbere there Is a content seems to be bearing some fruit. It Is diffi cult to justify any other ccurse than tbe one odopti d st Wardsboro. which 1 nllawinc all tbe patrops of tbe office, regardless of party, to have a voice In selecting the postmaster. wbo, however, should be polltloallr in ai- cord with the administration. We believe tbe method Initiated in Windham ceunty.Vc, will yet become tbe established rule all over theoumrj. Fond View of a Jug. From the Bellows Falls Times. Wo alluded to the Reformer's Men. In nnr last issue as a "Jug-handled reform." That particular soubriquet persistently obtruded It. self as we communed wltb tbe kei-ormbr, and as tt then Impressed us, was appropriate and had a point that even an Englishman might see. The Argus has, In fact, knocked tbe handle off the iug. And when. tn addition to this, tbe element of "reform'' In tbe proposition Is shaken by the Revoru kr'9 later qualification of tbe candidates tn these caucuses, another very Important factor ot the combination disappears. So thai, f tart Ing from tbe broad basis of "Jut-handled reform," we contemplate a series of dU fipurtng amputations. Tbe Argus cracks ott' tbe handle the Reformer withdraws the re form, and we have left tbe Jug contents and value unknown, but supposed to contain weal or woe for patrons of tbe nostoilice in Windham county. Somebody has been doing a bit of perfectly harmless and doubt less legitimate lying. It will probibly wash out later. The Kind of Man He Js. From the Boston Globe. Faith tu tbe people and a belief that tbey are entirely capable of selecting their own officials Is the keystone of Walter H. Childs' plan ior deciding wbo shall receive tba. postofflccs In Windham county of this stite. neiore speaking tn detail ot tue plan a few words should be said of Its originator. He U i In middle life, a life-long Democrat, of Jack- conlan Democracy ancestry, mellowed by the courtettes and amenities of business lite to day. Mr. Child I the head of one of the depart ments or the Esvey Organ vttrks, occttpy'.wr a responsible and confidential position, which brings him In dally contact with the Republi can Uov. Fuller, one of the principal officer, of the company. For many years Mr. C'bllds has been doing thankless work for bis party, serving on Its committees wben there was no hope of vie. tory, contributing generously for th9 parly.' work and cause, and when a rift showed la the political clouds and there was a cbince for victory and position Mr. Cbtlds ba de- ' cllned to be a candidate, and insisted tbat tbe ofH.:e should go to some other man. In other words, he bas been thoroughly loyal U hi party and unselfish. Tbe plan tbat has been tried this week wltb sucb gratifying success Is only auotber at tempt of Mr. Chillis to put bis party a step higher, and do away wltb any patronage, squabbles. A Great Success. From tbe Boston Herald.! "The Windham county plan" for choosing postmasters, as tbe system Is known for want of another name. Is a great success, eli minating from the selection of postmaster, by tbe department all chance of favoritism, removing tbat element of really unsatisfactory reference by petitions, and placirg tbe nam. log of postmasters wbere It naturally belong ed, wltb the people wbo use Hie postoSice for wblcb a new omclal Is lo be chosen. Tbe plan was tried Tuesday tn tbe little town of Wardsboro, ana Its operation iris watched closely and critically by" members of tbe town, county and state Democratic committees. la effect the plan Is to select a postmaster,. tbe same as any towu omcer is chosen by ballot; buttn tbls case only tbe patrons of - tbe office tn question are tbe electors. The- onlv restriction is that tbe candidates sbail be in sympathy with tbe administration. lt was round tbat a lew republicans ob jected to tbls last because lt 'wasn't fair,'" to make tbem work tor a nemocrat. in reply to. a question as to whether or not tbey would' insist upon a Republican at a similar time tbe enigmatlo answer ot "that's different'' wss received. The members of the county committee agree tbat the result Is one wltb which little, If any, fault could be found... It Is the end of petitions, they sar, and in tbe-' good feeling tbat was manifested all through, and after tbe result there Is to te found tbe? true, generous American spirit. The result is to secure tbe man the people want. Now View This Portrait Arena Style of Ar foment. From the Montpeller Argus.
