BRATTLEBORO. rRIDAY7jUNB U. 1007 THE FIRST CENSUS. Under authority of n recent net of congroioi the director of tlic census will puhlish this voiir tin ' of heads of families accompanying infor- matioti shown on such schedules of the rciuua of 1710 as aro in exigence for tho states of Vermont, New Uattip shire ami Maryland. Kaeh part will be a book of Mil pages, indexed, and ac companied by a reproduction of a map of tho state from an atlas of 17!hi. Not enough money is available for the cen sus bureau to publish all tho schedules in existence during tho present year; and additional authority will be re quired to permit such publication in future years. The threo states above mentioned, were chosen because their population was limited in number and the records in good condition. Kach part (the returns for each state) will bo sold to tho public at $1 a copy and may be obtained of the director of the census at Washington. These records will be of great genealogical interest and of considerable historic value. in the introduction, which is printed in each volume, a brief outline of the scope of and the methods of putting into operation the first census in 17SI0 is given. The total population was near ly four million, of whom about half a million were heads of families. Bo cause of the destruction of some of the schedules only about 400,000 names are available. The first census report was a volume of 56 small pages and did not contain the names of the orig inals, which arc now published for the first time. The population of Vermont was 85,423, of whom 16 were classified as "slaves." This was afterward found to be an error, the 16 persons having been returned in the original as "free colored." Therefore, tho record does not show that thcro were ever any slaves in Vermont. We confidently expect that the pub lication of these books will result in the organization, "immediately if not sooner," as Josiah Allen's Wife said, of a Society of the Sons and Daughters of the Heads of Families of the First Census. All those who think them selves eligible should bo provided with a copy. The Burlington Free Fress urges the appointment of a A7erinon'ter to the va cancy on the bench caused by tho death of Judgo William II. Townshend of Xew Haven, Conn., of the second circuit court. Wo should like to have this appointment come to Vermont, too, but we have no sympathy with the feeling that a "longstanding wrong" would thus be righted. Vermont is a small state and a state of small towns; there are few lawyers hero compared to New York (thank Heaven!) and it is not remarkable that Xew York should have received the appointment for the second district six times in six ty years to three times for Connecticut and none for Vermont. It is only fair to Vermont, however, for Tresident Roosevelt to look about and see if there aro any judicial minds in this state at tho disposal of the second cir cuit court, before passing tho job out to anotner Xew Yorker. If the ap pointment is made on a purely political basis, Vermont will stand no chance of recognition. Last week at Fitehburg, General Charles W. Bartlett of Boston an nounced without reservation or equiv ocation that ho was and would con tinue to be to the bitter end a candi date for the democratic nomination for governor of Massachusetts. His attitude is anti-trust and for reciproc ity and revision of the tariff. The sup port that may be behind Gen. Bartlett or the degree of favor in which he may stand with those men in the party who are popularly supposed to control it, both seem to be doubtful. There is one important point, however, about which there is no moro doubt than there is about the announcement of his candidacy and that is that Gen. Bart lett will make an almighty good gov ernor of the Old Bay State if he gets a chance. auiimliin that there, in and hit could, there aro A thoinniid men who fan fill Mr. lhllocr'a prom-lit plaro well, whero (hero aro ten men bltf enough for tho other ponition.

A special correspondent of Harper's Weekly writes that the exposition authorities promise to have everything complete this month, and that the correspondent personally be lieves it. lYrhnps tho Kra's friend In liiehmond is dodging anticipated visits from New Knglanders. The Center Congregational church of New Haven. Conn., rejects the plans for union of the Methodist. I'uited Hrethren, and Congregational churches. This will lead thoughtless ones to remark the apparent opposi tion to Christian unity. As a mutter of fact, the New Haven church objects entirely to the form of tho proposed union, and not to its object. Those who have given the question due con sidornlioii, however much they may fa vor unity of the denominations, admit that the New Haven church is not wrong. Vp to the present time the greatest disturbance about a third term for 1'resident KooseveJt has been made by thoso whose capacity for statesman ship is strictly limited to the amount of noise they can make. The president needs conviction on three points: First, that he can be elected; second: that no other fit man can be elected; ! and third, that he can best serve his j country by going back on his word. ! Those who believe in him most have j the least expectation that he will even! consider a third term. ho may wield tho pen for half it cen tury yet to como.

This "soulless corpora tion" will find Brattlcboro quite as willing to commend as to condemn. The Xew York University law school has just conferred degrees upon a class of ninety-six young men and one girl, and the girl stands at the head of the class. This sort of thing is largely to blame for the unpopularity of co-education in our higher institutions of learning. And no wonder! With the backing of Governor Proc tor, the prestige of the office he now holds, and his reputation for good looks and gallantry, is there any rea son why Lieutenant-Governor Prouty should not bo promoted, except that the voters of Vermont may not be wise enough to elect him?

The Times does not see, however, any cause for plaudits in his silence, or any reason for ecstasy on tho part of tho sponsors of his governorship boom. There seems to be a well defined plan on the part of corporation intluoneo and administration politicians to get his name before the people ns the can didate and demand hiB recognition by the voters. This view may bo wrong but indications are strong that way. It' this is so, it would be well for his sponsors to bear in mind that the vot ers in Vermont today are far different ly inclined than they were a few years ago. Then a demand for recognition from those high intlie counsels of the party meant spontaneous approval. Now- a candidate must present good and sufficient reasons for recognition, hence, under existing conditions, it is not only entirely proper but quite es sentiul that a candidate should state liw ut mill in it on the (luestion.

It is believed at Washington that it is now too late for any such notice, in view of the fact that all of the powers to be rep resented at the conference have passed upon the details of the program and have suitably instructed their dele gates. Another reason is that politi cal topics were especially barred in the invitation to the conference and as this Japanese proposition would tend to reopen questions supposed to have been settled by the Portsmouth treaty, and commenced using them. They helped me troin tne nrst, and in a short time the backache ceased and I felt, better in every way.

The com plainant then went on to state that in his opinion the trouble with the local telephone service was not duo to the operators but to the policy of tho com pany in keeping the force of the local exchange at a minimum. This is cer tainly a reasonable attitude. AH of us are likely to blame the operator when any delay in telephone service occurs without stopping to think that the trouble may be "higher up." When the cut-over to the new exchange is made and the common battery sys tem goes into use it is to be hoped that the powers that be in the tele phone company will see that the op erating force is largo enough to handle the service promptly and efficiently.
