To tho Sultan, no Armonian lsas pood as a dead Armonian, so tho Ked Cross Socioty must atay out oC Arracma. Tho fact that Govornor Morton is a nativo of Vermont seems to cut a small iipuro in this Stato in his raco for tho presidency. IIo is not a Vormontor now, uor a Now EnRlandcr,but a Now Yorker. Tho Snltan rofuses to allow the distri- bution of Bupplics amoup; tho distresscd Armenians, by tho Hed Cross Sooioty. This otTcrs still auothcr oauso for tho in- torforenco of tho European Powers in tho Turkish plan of oxtorraination. Ex-Goveruor 1'ago has been promi- nently mentionod for a placo on tho dol- CRatiun to St. Louis, but liis homo paper announces that liu is not a candi date. Mr. V:ife would add strenetli to any dol CRation that miRlit go from Vermont. ConKressman Grout's herd of cattlo has been fouud to be in a badly diseased condition and ncarly tho entiro hcrd killed. Tho congressman's brothor's gubernatorial boom is, however, in an extromely healthy condition. The Spnnisli citizens of fJavitia aro do- manding tho resiRnation of General Cam- ps, as commandurin chief of the Span- isli army in Ouba, ou accountof his iua- bility to copo with the insurgcnts. And yet Campos was called Spain's Breatest soldicr, being selcctcd on that account for Cuban servico. Now York City is making a hot tiRht for tlio honor of being tho convcntion city of tho Domocratio party this yoar, but tlio fear of bffending thc freo si'vcr portion of tlio party, who object to mcct ing in tlio heart of tho sound monoy soc tion of tho country, makos it moro thau po.ssiblu that New York's claim will be ovcrlooked. It is ahvays policy, and not fcarless honcsty, that control-t tho Dem ocratic loadors. Later: Dcmocraoy sur rendors to tho frco silvcr elcment and Chicago gots tho convention.

This will bo an ad- var.ced position for tho Government to take, novorthuloss it will probably bo a poputar one. Tho young Hepublicins of Montpelier aud Morrisville are showitiR a commeud ablo activity in tho woik of preparing for tlio fall cainpaign. In botli of tliefo places, clubs wcre formel Wednesday ovening, the Montpelier club starting with a niembcrship of 100, aud a blir stock of enthusiasm. As Vermont is al ways dopended upon in tho presidential campaigus to arouso tho enthusiasm of tho Uopublieans throughout tho country by a tromondons majority in itsSeptom bor olcction, thoso activities are cncour aging. Thoy indicate that tho Hepubli cans of tho Stato Vo alivototho impor tanco of sustaining, and if possiblo cx ceeding, tho big majorities of thc past. Engllsh Fairness. Tho world gencrally believcs that tho Transvaal mld was in accordanco with a carofully plauncd plot, on tho part of England, to add to hor African posses sions, tho South A rlcan Iiopublic. liut tho IU. Ilon. Arthur J. Iialfour, first lord of tho treasury, says tliat ho is suro that thobo responsiblo for tho inovo ment thoro wcro not guided by tnoan, sordid tnotivcs. This must bo truo, for tho movemcnt waB ontirely in keoping with tho gcnerosity and fairncss that has for conturics distinguished England in hor trcatmcnt of thn weakor nations. Tho plan of taking of torritory and then holding it iu splto of protests is all right in thc sight of tho English peoplo, who boliovo in taking whatover thoy can get, without rogards to tho right of the smallor powers, Thoy can seo nothing fordid and mean about it. Of course England was not "guided by mean, sordid motivos" when slio forcib ly soizod Gibraltor, in 1701, Mauritius in 1710, Aden. in 1804, Malta, in 1814, Trini- daa, in 1707, tho most of Africa, includ ing tho gold coast, Bechuannland, tho Soudan, Capo Colony, Zululaud, and all tho richor portions of tho continout. Jamaica, in 1055; Ceylon, in 1705; Ascon. sion Islands, in 1810; firitish Uurraah, Iicrbico, Iiornoo, Hong Kong, Iluligo- land, Gozo and St. Ilolena and Brltlsh Indla, which is to-day ono of tho most valuablo of Eng land's possosslons, hcn England had onco gain d a foothold in Ilindostau thero was no(rest untll tho entiro ponin sula was nndor her control, In mucli the samo way many small islands, valu ablo as coaling stations, havo bocn seized by tho lSritish. In somo fow in stances thcso islands havo bocn aftor wards surrondercd to tho rightful own ors, but such uascs aro raro, and as a rule England has flrmly held what sho has seizcd. During this century, sho has mado fow attompis upon tho Amcrican continents, ovving to tlio promptness and forco with which all such attompts havo been ro sisted by tlio Unitod Stites. Mit-load by Prcsident Clovoland's liabitual woakness in doaling with foioign quot-tions, England believed that now, of all times, was her loug cuvoted opportunity to smash tlio Monroo Doctrine, and opcn a way for aggrcssions on this hemisphero; henco her attompt to seizo abaut a third of Venezuelan territory, Whethbr or not tho English govormcnt had .tctual knowlcdgo of tho intendcd Tranvsaal raid, it is certaiu that it was planned and startod by tho English chartcrod corapany controlling Capo Colony, with tho assuranco, based upon England's timo honorcd policy, that, in case of success, tho torritory of tho Boors, rich in gold doposits, would bo gladly annoxod to tho present Britisli South African possessions, aud tho pro moters of theentorpriso richly rewarded. VERMONT NEY7S. Ralso Cood Horsos. Thero is still a good demand for fino carriage horscs, and owing to tho genoral dispositinn on tho part of farmers to raiso scrub stock instead of a higher grado of animals, this stato of affairs is likely to contiuuo. What Vermont breeders should do thereforo is to pay cspeoial attention to tho production of horses that will meot tlio demand for geutlemen's drivers and carriago horses. Mr. Williams is right in saying that tho Morgan family are distincti nly a roadster class of horses. riieyhave thodcsircd size.spced and powers of onduranco, and thoir beauty as a family is not oxcellod. It costs no moro aftcr a colt is onco secttred to raiso agood Morgan horso than it doos to pro duco a plug, and when tho farmers of this Stato realizo this fact and act upon it. thore will bo somo probability of Ver mont again becoming famous for hor fino horses, and posscssing a markot which will bring buyers from all parts of tho country.

Burlington Nows. Tho Rced-DIngloy Revenuo Bill. It oould not bo expectgd that under such flro-alarm conditions a fully digest ed rovonuo measuro could bo prepared. Under tho circumstauces, tho. rovenne bill shows a eratifying degrco of good scnse. In view of Uip brovity, directness and eflicionoy of tho measuro, to criticiso its rainor defects would be suporcilious. It is a prompt, wise, efficlont and well directed etfort to restore the solvency of tho government by much necdcd protcct ivo cluties. It will be as helpful to in d'ustry as to tho Treasury. It is only to contiuuo iu oporation un til August 1, 1803, by which timo the nation will havo decided definitely whother it wants to continue its protect ivo policy or enter upon tho now century with a freo trado experimerit. If tho election of 1800 should give n Congress and a prcsident in favor of an anti-pro-tectiou policy, tho provisions of this bill will clear the way for it, as theso duties will ceaso to operato in less than a year aftor tho new concress mcets. On tho othcr hand, if, as is much moro probablo, tho nation dccides in IF0J that it wants to begin the contnrv with aprotcctivo policy, tho oxpirat oi of this law will mako an cntlre revision of tho subjcct necessaiy; in which case, it is hoped that tho tariff will bo put upon a moro striotly economic and less polltical basis thau over beforo.
