Cpnsidering tho fact that this is an off
yoar, tuoro was a largo attendanco at tho
Domocratic Stato Convontion that was
hold iu Burlington, ycstcrday, about
fiOO delcgatcs being prosont. Tho con
vontion was called to ordor bv T. J.
Boynton, chairman of tho Stato commit-
tco, wno presented the namo of P. G.
Farroll, of Nowport, as tomporary chair
man. Among thoso namod as secrotar-
ies was AVells Valentino. Thisorgauiza
tion was afterward mado tho permanont
ono with tho addition of ono vico presi
dont from each county, that from this
county being R. M. Houghton. Tho
chairman of tho committco on rcsolu
tious was II. W. Martin of this villaco.
Tho proceodings of tho convontion
woro dovoid of much intorcst. and tho
follownig tickot was put in uommation
caoh by a rising voto: For govornor,
Goo. W. Smith of Whito Riyor Junction;
for Liout.!govornor,Maj. E. M. Bullard of
Swanton; secretary of Stato. John W.
Gorton, Barro: treasuror, Chas, Clark,
Rutland; auditor, E. E. Sargent, St,
Johnsbury. Tho committco on resolu
tions reportcd a platform which was
adopted. It recitcs that tho Vermont
Domocraoy is undismaycd by tomporary
(?) defeats and conildont iu tho hopo of
its ultimato triumph; that tho marks of
Republisan rulo aro everywhoro visible,
and thon follows tho stock nhraso of
wealth in tho hands of a fow, etc, otc,
so familjar to our peoplo sinco 1800.
iiiKo tncir Dretiiron, tno boutnem uour
boiis, Vermont Domocrats want to got
out into the markots of tho world and
do businoss, tho homo markct is
cramped and rostrictcd.
It it was not for tho suro ruin of
American industrics wo might wish that
th6 Grcon Mountain Domocracy had
thoir desires provcd by oxpcrienco. Of
courso tho Ropublican party is do
nounced for tho prcsent stato of tho
country. It was donounced in 1804, bo
causo tho war was a failuro; but what is
tho uso of reasoning with peoplo who
laud Clovoland and his administrativo to
tho skics?
A rcsolution instructincr tho Stato com
mittco to call tho noxt Stato convontion
at Rutland, was introducod by T. II.
Brown of Rutland, and after considor
ablo discussion was dismissed. Geo. M.
Viall of Dorset was ro-electod as a mom
bor of tho Stato committco from this
county. Tho convontion was in session
about two hours only.
Ithas beon tho boast of Domocratic
leadors that tho Domocratic party was
immortal. It is truo that with ono
change of namo but sovoral cliangcs of
principlos, this old, if not vouerablo, or
ganization has oxisted for moro than a
hundred ycars. It is truo that witnin
this century it has witnessod tho birth
and tho dcath of soveral poworf ul antag
onists. When tho ardent Deraocrat ro
flects upon tho fate of tho Federal party
and tho Wbigs, it is not surprising, per
haps. that ho should beliovo that thn
Domocraoy is dcstincd to dofy tho as
saults of timo forevor, but ho should not
pormit himself to bo unduly puffed up
with tho prido which is tho harbingor of
uestruction ana tno uaugiity spirit which
gooth bcforo a fall.
i or thoro aro ominous siirns that tho
Democraoy's turn has now ;omo to fol
low its dead and gono prcdocossors, and
that in tho words of ono of its most gif t
ed seors and sagos, it is already march
ing through a slaughtor houso" into an
open gravo. It is tho unvarnishcd truth
tnat novor m tho raemorv of tho nrosont
generation havo tho ovidonces of tho
Democraoy's oarly and compluto dissolu
tionbeon so manifost. Not oven tho
talnt of troason was so potont to blight
tho Domocratic vitallty as the virus of
froo trado. When Massachusotts, into
which ovor sinco tho war a crreat flood of
Deraocratio immigration has beon pour-
mg, roiurns tno largcst nopuDUcan ma
jority for 20 years; when Ponnsylvania
with 200,000 breaks its elorious Ronubli-
can rocord; whon Now Jersoy, which all
through tho war clung to copperhcad
ism, now ropudlates Democracy; when
tho most bigoted Domocratic district in
Illinois goes Ropublican for tho first
timo in its historv in briof. whon Ro
publican Statcs are moro Republican
than ovor, and Democratio Statcs aro go
in Ropublican which nevor wont tjiat
waybofoio, itis simply impossiblo not
to soo that tho Domocratic party is Bad
dlod with tho most unpopular causo
with which it was ovor afdictod, and suf
foring tho worst oxtromity to which it
ovor was roducod.
It is not tho moro weaknoss of tho
Clovoland Administration which has
dono all this, for Buchanau's Adminis
tration was ovon wcaicer. it is not tho
fat-wittcd Domocratic loadorshin in Con
gress, for that is no now phenomonon.

corn tho reader and adverttsor as well as
tho publisher, as follows:

and to whom?

5th. What rato, per lino or article,

8th. What orico. ner lino or itom.

Oth. Is tho press doing all that it can

10th. Shall tho annual meetincrs bo

11th. Shall tho annual excursion

12tb. Aro nremiums and clubbincr ar-
rangomcnts ucsirablo?
13th. Aro semi-weeklics botter than

Thoro is littlo doubt that tho "advanco
Eaymont" system, whoro practicablo, Is
ottor both for tho papor and subscribcr.
and as much might bo said of soveral
other subjects notod. As to tho "club-
bing systcm," opiuions differ. Wo
think, howover, that our rcadors consid
or clubbing arrangomcnts, cspecially
with tho Tribuno (woekly), New York
Press (daily), and Boston Journal (woek
ly), to bo a grcat accommodation as well
as saving to thom, judging by tho hun
drcds who annually tako advantago of
the rates.
As to whothor tho Stato papors should
publish tho "laws" freo, thoro should bo
but ono mind. If tho Stato of Vermont
has bocomo too poor, or too stingy to
Eay for tho publishing of its Session
aws, thon no class of mon ought to bo
cauca upon to poriorm that sorvico.
Tho fact that tho press of tho Stato, gcn
orally, did givo tho peoplo tho laws of
1692, gratis, is no rcason why it should
bocomo a custom. When tho Stato paid
for tho dissomination of what its legis
laturo had dono, in tho ycars agone, tho
sum was so meagro that tho amount
scarcoly paid for tho typcsetting, and
from that to nothing was tho cdict of
1S92. Tho press should novor again pub
lish theso laws gratis.
Tho Bannek has alroady adopted a

thanks givon by tho peoplo has been
about zero, although tho "doar pcople"
have beon tho ones benofitted by tho riso
in roal ostato, otc, and not tho brethren
of tho guild editoiial.
Wo look forward to something prao
tical in tho results of tho proposed meet
iug and discussion.
"Senator UI11 of Now York," says tho
Transcript, "is now ono of tho raostcon
spicuous and interesting characters in
our politics. Hois tho only Democrat
m the senato who dares to resist tho con
fcdorato cabal and defond tho principles
of tho Domocratic party as doclared in
its last national conveution. Everv
Democratic senator oxcopt ZXill h3s
abandoned tho Chicago platform, and
broken tho pledges mado to tho peoplo
bcforo tho olootion. Cleveland is guilty
oi tno samo treacnory ana is waiting to
sign a tariff bill that contains all tho
abuscs ho has donounced, a bill that was
framcd at tho dictation of tho sugar
trust and gives to thatcolossal monopoly
special pnviloges and enormous proflts.
This is tho first timo in our history,
whon tho leaders of a great partv boldly
ropudiato and voto down, after olcction,
tho principles that thoy advocatod m the
canvass.- Tho men who denounced pro
tection "as robbery" as "unconstitution
al and a fraud," votea duty of forty per
cent. on sugar, eighty por cont. on rice
and high tariffs on all southorn products.
This is not only a shameless abandon
ment of their professions and pledges,
but an unparalloled oxhibition of sec
tional selfishness."
The Now York Press report says:
Sonator Hill's aiTaignment of his own
party for its abandonment; of professed
principles and rojection of the platform
which it had used to "bunco" the Amer
ican peoplo, was cutting, becauso it was
ropleto with unwclcome truth. Hill had
tho Bourbons and thoir Northern syco
phants holplossly coralled, and ho didn't
spare tho branding iron. It was a very
hot iron, and left a permanont and pain
ful mark. Sonator Hill seoms to forget,
howover, that tho Democracy is consist
ent only when inconsistont; that it has
adopted platform after platform, only to
abandon thom, and has beon, in turn,
tho willing agent of slavery and trcason,
of nativo treachery and forcign grced.
