The Supreme Court met at Mont

nounced its decisions in a number of
cases heard in the May. term and pre
viously. . i
In the liquor agency case of state
against the town of Urattleboro the
court reversed the judgment of the
county court and held that tbe law
compelling the payment of agency
nrofits above 10 per cent couldn't be
retroactive. So Brattleboro will not
have to part witb any of ber rum
Drotitt except to pay lawyers' fees.
inasmuch as it was fixed so that there
wouldn't be any more above JO per

In Sanders vs. Pierce the court sus
tain the motion to quash. A curious
poiut was involved here. In the
printed form of the writ, bought at
Slontpelier, at one place the words
"one hundred" were omitted, and as
the suit was for 105-and the "five"
only wirtten in. the defen lant in the
countv court raised the point of want
of jurisdiction or that the suit was
for less than 20. The county court
held that this pont was not raised in
time, but the supreme court holds
that it was. Waterman, Martin A Hitt
for plaintiff. FitU. Haskins and

THE ARMY WORM.
Its Ravages In Westminster and Other
Towna How to Cheek It-The grlen
tlnc Fact. About It. -
The army worm whose ravages bad
for 10 days previous been reported at
various points in Massachusetts and
New Vork, is appearing at various
points in tbe Connecticut Valley in
this section, like a veritable Egyptian
plague. Our Hinsdale oorrepondent
tells a woful tale of its work there and
in Weatm inter hundreds of acres of
corn and oats have been entirely ruin
ed and thousands of dollars of dam
age done. In some cases farmers have
burned tbeir crops to ret rid of tbem.
Several other towns report the destruc
tive worK in less serious proportion.
Many fields about Centreville and east
Brattleboro have suffered severely, and
even some gardens in .the village
here have been attacked.' It is the
habit of the pest to devour everything j
green in a field it attacks.
It tras 'M years ago that this worm
appeared here in serious proportions
and J B Thomas whose fields were
suffering, took a specimen to the late
C C Frost who recommended a remedy
which Mr Tbomas successfully applied
and which the agricultural depatrhent
officials are seuamg out in bulletins
cow, with-some additions It is to plow
around the affected field a deep ditch
or furrow, leaving a perpendicular wall
on the outside, up which the worms
cannot climb. Then bolen made a foot
or two deep, at 15 or 20 feet apart
would in a short timo tie HI led witn
them, where thev could easily be
crushed or killed with kerosene. A
broad band of tar also makes a good
Imrriei, and is renewed as it becomes
tilled with its captives.
When marchng over a comparatively
smooth piece of ground a heavy roller
can be used to crush them. When al
ready entered into a cornfield they
mav oe kept from proceeding lurtner
by ditching as above indicated. A
few rows in advance of the progressing
army should be spiayed with Pans
green in water, or dusted, wnne tne
dew is on, with dry Paris green and
It is believed that the sudden ap
pearance of the pest in localities 11
due to the fact that it thrives in
marshy and wet . places from which
it has beeo driven by the drying up
of its haunts, and it is forced to seek
its food in the fields of grass, rye,
oats and wheat Prof. Lintner, the
New York state entomologist says:
It is not quite certain that this is
the true army worm, Leucania uni-
nuueta. Some of its operations in
dicate that it nisy prove to be what
is known as tbe wneat neau army
worm, Leucaoia albolinea. The cater
pillars of the two are so much alike
that I cannot determine this point
until some of tbe moths have been
'The armv worm, when abundant
is UBuatly'at tacked by a parasite which
lays a number of its eggs on the fore
cart of tbe. body near tbe bead.
None of these are tojjtie seen on the
caterpillars now with us, nor nas
another parasite been observed prey
ing upon thera.
But otner observers say: mobi 01
the larger worms now bear on their
backs, closely adhering, small, white
eggs, which were stuck were oy an
active little insect looking very mucn
ke our common house fly ; from the
eeg tnere will soon naicn minuie
maggots, wnicli will Durrow mto tne
army worms and revel in the juices
and fatty tissueB of their bodies, grad
ually sapping the life of the caterpil

bearing the eggs of this little parasite
nv will ever succeed in passing
through the wonderful trafiformation
to tho moth age."

THE REPUBLICAN RALLY.
Small Audience, Chiefly Women and
Little Enthusiasm Kindergarten Tar
iff Talk by Col. Hooker -Account ol
the St. Lonl. Convention by Or. Hoi
ton-Sliver (Question Discussed by Mr.
Because of the hot weather, the
audience in Opera Hall for the open
ing Republican rally was a verv small
one and there were more ladies persent
man men. ine lack of enthusiasm
was marked but, much better, it was
an attentively Jitetening crowd, in
dicating that this is to he n campaign
of thought and information, seeking
instead of shoutng. Tbe "Bratlteboro
Protective Quartette" consisting of
Walter Gilbert Walter Stearns Fred
erick and Frank Brazor ren-
drred three selections very spiritedly
from the Republican song book
and the speeches were bv Col. Hooker,
Hon. J. L. Martin and Dr. H. D. Hoi
ton The Colonel's was chaarcterstc,
abounding in bis bright turns, genrous
in his allusions to .Mr. Kryao than
whom be admitted there was "no
more brilliant man living" but fur
nishing assertion entirely iu place of
arument His topic was the tariff and
bis position, was ever, with the ques
tions that have puzzled the profound
est minos of tbe world, was that it
was "too simple" to admit a discus
sion before an intelligent audience.
Ail'tbere was of it was a question of
WBger, whether our labor shall be
reduced to Englard's standard of
living. "Free trade" (with a tariff
on the article it covers averging
higher than in war timet bad brought
such importations (which as a mat
ter of fact are running 810,000,000 to
?20,000,000 than under the McKinley
cia) bad shut down shops and tha
was the reason for the duloess in our
organ business (fully half of whose
product is going abroad and beating
"cheap labor" in competition) and
tbe shutting down of the Hinsdale
and Ashuelot mills. And some one in
England had told some one in New
York who told bim that mills in Lan
cashire were running 18 hours a day
and if Democrats would give them
five years more of it, they would get
rich enough so they could afford to
give away tbeir mills.
Dr. Hoi ton came in late because be
bad been called to Vernon for a sur
gical operation, but gave a very
graphic and interesting recount of
the Chicago convention, which be re
garded as the most notable in tbe
history of the party, and like that of
1800 for importance to the country.
The Doctor was on the committee of
resolutions and told of many of the in
cidents of its work and tbe discussion
over different planks, especially on
woman's suffrage, interspersing it ali
witn many orient turns of tbougtK.
The chief address of tbe evening was
tnat of Mr Martin, who made a strong,
a well-thought and well-studied ar
gument on tbe money question. Especi
ally good was bis illustration about
bank deposits and checks and tbe
effect of confidence or tbe lack of it
One or two of bis positions might be
controverted, but as a whole it was a
discussion such as tbe people are look
ing for in these times, and we there
fore give it Dearly in full:
The first claim of the sHverltes Is that under
the act of Congress of 1873 silver was taken
from Its place as money, thereby forcing a sin
gle gold standard for our currency, resulting In
a contraction of the money In circulation.
This jioslUon is erroneans. In the first place
the act of demonetization of lt73 has nothing to
do, can have nothing to do, with the contraction
We are using now all the silver that cm lie
used and lie kept on a parity with gold. From
