SEMI-WEEKLY BANNER, JFRIBAY, JULY, 6, 1894.
IN THE LOOAL FIEL Bennington Contro. , IN MEMOIUAM. Saturday aftoriioon, Juno 30th, nnnthor of tho stanrlard-boarers of tho Old First cliurch of Bennington was carricd to liis Imrial. Butlittlo moro tlian n year has pissed sinco Dea. Alfrod Itobinsou quiot ly fell asleop. Wo havo liot yet-becomo acoustomod to tho silonco of liis voico in our asspmblios, or coasod to tniss "tho touch of tho vauishod hand," and now apaln, suddcnly, without noto of warn inp, tho Jlastor has claimod his own. Of Dea. Albcfrt Harwoud it mipht bo eald as of ono of old, "Behold an Israol ito indeed in whotn thuro is ,110 pnilo." What ho was in tho homo, in tho church, in thoeommunity at larso, it is loft for achlnc; hearts to undorRtand. Tho testi raony of thoso who lcnow him best would forra a glowinf; opitaph. Thoy would not olaim for him talonts of an unusual ordor, or scholarship boyond othor mon, but thoy would omphasizo tho kindnoss of heart, tho lifo withouthypocrioy, and without affcotation, tho ptft of common senso which mado his judumont so roli ablo, and his advico so Bafo to follow. But porhaps what distinRuishod him 'most was his loyalty to tho causo of Christ. Hispioty was deep and for voiit. Ilowovor sohoolmen and mota physicians micht "darken oounsel by words without knowlodgo," his faith know no waverinc Tho Biblo and tho family altar occupied tho central plaoo in his homo. Tho instruetions of tho Sunday school woro dear to his hcart. Ho was a regular attcndant upon divino worship, and tho church which ho loved so well will Ioiiec niiss him in his aceus tomcd seat, and mourn his absenco. His funeral was attondod by a largo cir clo of friends whoso prcsenco testifled to their boreavomont. Tho pastor alluded to tho fact that what is losa to us is gain to our brothor. Tho best which the world had to civo, ho had eujoyod, and ho loft it without boing surfeitod. Succoss attendcd him in in'any ways. In thinking of his pros pority ono called to mind tho blcssinfts proroisod in tho first Psalm. No heavy eorrow had cloudod his pathway, and disoaso had uovor enfeoblod him. Ho is sparcd tho inflrmities of ago. llo ontors upon tho inheritanoo of tho saiuts in tho maturity of a manhood that has novor known a stain. Tho hymns "Asleop in Josus," and "Abido with mo," werofcolinsr endcrcd, and Mio caskot was boruo tondorly from tho homo of his ancostors, whoro his wholo lifo had bcen spont, to tho old comctery whoro so many conerations of tho fathers sleop sido by sido Tho sor vicos at tho gravo woro mado impressivo by tho slow tolling of tho bell, wliilo tho vords, "I am tho rosurrection and tho lifo" called attontion to immortal hopes. It U not death to dle. To leave this wcarj rnad, And 'mid the brotbcrhood on bigb., To bo afhome with God. It is not death to fllng Asldo this flnfuldust. And rlse on strong exultlng wing, To llve nmong the just. Jesus, thou Prluco of Lifel Tliy cuosen cannot die; Like Thee, they conquer in tho strlfo, To icign with Thce ou hlgh." North Bennington.

Brown ro moves from town tho last malo ropro sontativo of Richard Brown, who, in ono of our town histories, is mentioned as moviug td Pownal from Rhodo Island in 1780. Tho samo writor records that, aftor hisarrivat ho built tho first grist mill in tho town. Without dcciding up on tho dato of his coming hero, wo ques tion tho statomout that ho was tho first man who providod a placo to grind corn and whcat for tho uso of our ancostors. Tho youngcst of his sons was Ethan, father of tho subject of this skctch. Tn 1850, Ethan sold to R. Carpenter, Jr., and Company, tho "wator privilego" on tho Iloosick, which ho had inhorited from his father, Richard. Ethan had only ono son, Portor E., who, upon tho former's deceaso, has boen tho solo malo survivor of tho family namo within tho Stato. Ho was a man who in his latter ycais exhibited many marked personal charnctoristics. Uo had a good sharo of Yankeo adaptability and a quick pcr ception, qualities that iittcd him for tho businoss which ho followcd at tho timo of his dcath. Ho was tho raauagcr of an oflico at North Adams, Mass., belonging to a Boston flrm. Tho president of tho company attendod his funeral and pre sonted as a tokeu of their decp regard for tho deceasod, a very elaborato and iitting iloral tributc. Ho is survivod by his wifo and ono daughter (adopted). Who will bo Sonator? Somo ono in last wcok's Bannek makcs an cstimato of probablo support for tho nomination of Sonator from tho south shiro. Our roferonce tothis is simply to omphasizo the claim which Pownal may havo m tho raco. Now wliilo wo havo not thq high cst respect for this kind of political ap pointmeut, ye,t, other tliings being cqual, it may bo that common courtesy sometimcs requires just such a profor ment. Without naming individuals, wo discovor uo aotvantago of any, so far as they aro aspirauts to this position, why ono is bottor than another. This beiug so, wo seo uo rcason why Pownal should not bo respcctcd in her claims for tho honors of prcsenting to the con vention tho namo of a candidato for Son ator of tho southern shiro. 01 courso a Pownal dolcgation would bo carcful to present tho namo of such a man as would satisfy tho avorago standard of mon usually soloctcd for this oflico, and of courso Bennington is so magnani mous and has so fow "oflico soekcrs," thero is little foar of her vlolating this "rulo of prcccdonco," and Pownal nood look for opposition only from thoso towns that aro watching for a trado samowhero. From theso premises wo tako it for grantcd that tho most Pow nal can at prosont do, is to mako a good selection in tho man whom they will present for nomination. This will bo an easy matter whon tho timo comes for makmg choico of delegatos. And as to tho suggestlon that Pownal should bo satisfied with associato iudfre. whilo this might bo a compliment in othor years. wo cannot wnon aavocating tno integrity of a rulo, so far f orget our con sistoncy as to assont to a sharo in tho dispbsitlon of "spoils" whoroby our noigubors suuor robbory.
