NEWS & CITIZEN. The Lamoille PttllisMn Company, Editors and Proprietors. MORRISVILLE AND HYDE PARK, APRIL 2nd, 1888. Henry Ward Beecber is in favor of a southern man for President in 1888 and leans kindly towards Lamar. Vice-President Hendricks will get! all bis friends appointed to office if it takes all summer. The Hoosiers are coming ! The appointment of Edward J. Phelps as Minister to the Court of St. James, continues to receive general approval. The patient office-seekers in Wash ington are now waiting for the Senate to adjourn. Then, they believe, the clouds will roll by in earnest, and the work of removals will go bravely on. Indications are that English and Russia will not be able to settle their differences amicably, and that war will boob follow. Russia is in a bad con dition financially to engage in war, in fact is on the verge of bankruptcy. The St. Johnsbury Eepublican, the successor of the Index, made its first aDoearance - last week. It is a nine column folio, same size as the News & Citizen, and is well filled with local presents a handsome appearance in its new outfit. President Cleveland continues in making good appointments. The fol lowing are among his latest nomina tions: A. R. Lawton of New York Minister to Russia ; A. M. Keiley of Virginia, Minister to Italy ; E. P. C. Lewis of New Jersey, Minister to Portugal; Isaac Bell, Jr., of Rhode Island, Minister to the Netherlands ; Rufus Magee of Indiana, Minister to Norway and Sweden ; R. A. Ander son of Wisconsin, Minister to Den mark ; T. M. Waller of Connecticut, Consul-Geuertl at London ; and T. J. Jarvis of North Caroliua. Minister to Brazil. All of these men are of good character and excellent ability. Jacob Thompson, Secretary of t.ie Interior under President Buchanan, died at Memphis, Tenn., Tuesday of ,last week, and on the following Thurs day Secietary Lamar ordered the offices of the Interior Departmeni closed in honor of his memory. The propriety of closing the Interior or any other governmental department upon the death of any of its former secre taries would not, ordinarily, be ques- tioned; but when one of the Jake Thompson stripe dies, and the nation is called upon to lament his demise, loyality has a right to demur. Thomp son was a traitor. While Secretary he entered zealously into the southern conspiracy which resulted ii lite open outbreak of the rebellion. lie after wards became a confederate general emissary to Canada, and in that capacity organized the St. Albans raid in the fall of 1864, in which banks were robbed, horses stolen and blood shed. While in North Carolina aiding the secession move, a defalca tion of $870,000 was discovered in his department. Floyd, who was then Secretary of War, was a party to the theft, ran away, and later became a rebel general. Thompson was suspected, with good reason, of a knowledge of the plot to assassinate Lincoln, and President Johnson offered $25,000 reward for his capture. He remained a violent rebel to the last, and died unpardoned and without hav ing his political disabilities removed. The propriety of honoring the official record of one who was active on the confederate side is questioned and the query naturally arises will the War Department be closed when Jeff Davis dies? Scssbt Cox. Of course Sunset Cox's rppointment as minister to Turkey, over which Washington has been smiling;, began in a joke. Cox said jokingly to a friend, who wanted to visit the American legation at Constantinople, that he guessed the only way was to have S. o. Cox made minister to Turkey. Cox's re mark was repeated, of course, and the appointment began to be talked about as a possible one. Then Cox got to thinking seriously about it. He was in Constantinople during his last European tour. He liked his expe rience there, and, in fact, all through the east. The more he thought of it the more attractive it became. The salary of the minister to Turkey, t.irirnljr B7.')()0. Ba ramflri hjMJoa. gress last session to 10,000. The t-rm of the office will probably be four years. Last year Mr. Cox had some difficulty to get his renomination to Congisss. The next attempt might be more difficult. Mr. Cox is no longer young, except in heart. He was 60 on the 20lh of last September. On the whole Mr. Cox thought he would like to go to Turkey . The President, like everybody else, likes Mr. Cox. When he heard that Mr. Cox wanted to go as a minister to Turkey, he sent him word that he would nominate him. The first Cox (who was slightly under the weather, and so confined to bis room) knew of it was from telegrams of congratula tion from New York. Cox will lake occas on to thoroughly explore the Holy Land while he is abroad, and will probably write a book or two. The nomination is universally ap proved. Cox will be greatly missed irotn the House. Emphasizeto the Ultimatum. The Queen's proclamation is a distinct, but not an unmistakable, menace of war. The reserves and the militia are never called out for holiday parade, but only in a crisis of foreign affairs. Neverthe less, peace is often the outcome even of the most serious preparations for war. Th calling out of the reserves and the militia is the English method of empha sizing an ultimatum and informing a outinental neighbor that the govern ment and the nation are determined to fiht rather than compromisfc. This is tiie real msaning of the proclamation in thd present instance. Ne to York Tribune. - General Grant had a bad turn Sun day, but soon rallied, and at present is quite comfortable. England Calls out Her Reserves. Active war preparations throughout England continue, and not since the Crimean war has the excitement ben so great. The belief has rapidly grown within the past few days that a war with Russia is unavoidable, and the war fever is now strong upon the people. The activity at the arsenals and dock-yards is almost unprecedent ed. Large forces of men are em ployed both day and night filling the heavy orders alreach- sent in by the war and admiralty officers. Thursday morning officers of the ordinance de partment at Chatham received imper itive orders to ship imnitdiately to Bombay all the Martini-Henry rifles in store in that department. Already the irovernment arsenals are taxed to their utmost, and so urgent are some of the orders that contracts have had tn h made with private firms. At the dockyard, vessels are being fitted out for iustant departure, some oi them rfot having been placed under colors for vears. Notwith standing that the situation has not improved in the least all the markets are stronger. The calling out of the reserves and militia has increased the excitement over the Anglo-Russian dispute. Or ders for thousands of Martini-Henri rifles and revolvers have been sent to Rirmincrham. The arms are to be shipped to Bombay as rapidly as com pleted. The factories at Binning nam are working night and day. A spec ial cabinet council was held at v nirt sor Castle Thursday afternoon bj com mand of the Queen. Just as tne min isters were leaving the castle a mes senger arrived from the foreign office bearing dispatches for Lord Gran ville from Sir Edward Thornton, min ister to Russia, and Lord Duflerin, viceroy of India. The ministers rv-..-,.i tic .tie and a second council was held. Order. have been sent to Chatham to supply immedi ately 5,000,000 cartridges. A wild rumor is afloat that some Russiau troops have attacked a portion of Sir Peter Lumsden's parly and killed two of his men. It is expected that at present 20, 000 men of the first class will be called out, with 5000 picked, efficient militia. It is believed that the gov ernment is preparing to send a fleet to the Baltic when the ice breaks up to prevent the exit of Russian vessels. The decision to call out the re serves was taken in view of the Queen's departure for the continent in order to be prepared for an emer gency. The Boom West, We notice in a New York paper that the "western fever is once more raging in Vermont, and from present indications at least one thousand citi zens of the State will effect a settle ment beyond the Mississippi this year. Among those who are going to Dako ta are nearly one hundred old sol diers." As yet we have not heard of any very violent western booms. What we hear the most of, is supplica tions for funds. The Vermont farm er's boy generally respects the asso ciations of the old home and the bus iness world, and he has little liking for pre-empting claims in some dismal uninhabited territory. The prospect altogether is not inviting. We find it described as follows by a correspond ent of the Chronicle: "Or.e of my neighbors has two sons. One is in the west, and has been for the past 12 or 15 years, and is always ready to wax eloquent over the beauties and advantages of his section over any in Vermont, and still he is ho poor that he is deprived of the comforts of life. and his father sends him money everv year to keep him and his family from suffering. I he other son is settled here in Vermont, owns a nice farm, with fine buildings, pleasantly located within half a mile of a flourishing vil lage; a pood team, good farming tools and a good stock of cattle. He is not very much in debt, has every thing as comfortable as heart could wish, and yet I do i't think any one ever heard him say a word in favor of Vermont as a farming country. Such has been my observation. A person may go into the most God forsaken place in the great west, and every resident of the place will do his ut most to give the stranger a favorable impression of the place and, if possi ble, mducj hini to locate among them. especially if he has means which can in any way add to the business of the place, and it is this which is doing so much to build up the west. He adds that if Vermonters would stand by their State and homes in like man ner, they could find enough to truth fully commend, and the State would suffer less by the emigration of the young men." The Vermont farmers' boys who have fair farms in Ver mont, or have a thirst for trade, will not go to these new countries to fol low farming. If they leave Vermont they will either drift to Boston or New York, or seek some stirring western city ; they will hardly leave Vermont to follow farming in Dakota or Montana, and yet Dakota and Montana are good places no doubt. The fact is, Vermont bhould encourage her reliable sons to stay east, and enjoy those advantages their fathers and mothers have raised up for them. Retain your sons and daughters and your capital at home and enjoy those things that your industry has secured for you, aud let the Norwegian go west. Clipper. - WASHINGTON NOTES. Miss Folsotu, of Buffa'o, whom the gossips declare that the President will marry in the fall, helped Miss Cleve land at the latter's recent reception. She is a pretty, gracious lady, with a fine figure and attractive manner. She is Miss Cleveland's guest, and is a subject of much interest in view ot her possible elevation to the much en vied position of "first lady in the land." "Duke" Gwyn. of California, now 81 years old, modestly applies for the Japanese mission. John Russell Young is coming home from China, and will resume his place on the New York Herald staff. His secretary of legation, Chester Hol comb, the best Chinese linguist in this country, is here trying to secure the mission. You::g has quarreled with him and will do all he can to beat Holcomb any way. About a dozen pairs of horses were taken up to the White House tv.e other day and driven by the windows, while the President looked out to see if any of them suited him. None of them did. He is still using Mr. Arthur's bays, and may wind up by buying them. President Cleveland recently made a visit to the stable attached to the White House and found it filled with horses of no service, save to air the employes. In all there were seven. He directed two to be retained for of fice use, and the balance to be turned over to the quartermaster's depart-' mpnr. nf thft srmv. whpra thpv ha. I longed. WASHINGTON LETTER. Washington, D. C, ) March 23. 18S5. The new administration has passed another week without anything to dis tinguish it in work or sensation. The Senate awaits with patience the ex pected nominations, anxious to finish and go home. President Cleveland has said he would prefer it to con tinue in session until he wants the Senate to pass upon his selections for diplomatic posts, so that the question of confirmation may be settled before the appointees go abroad. In lieu of Presidential nominations for discussion, the Senate talks on treatj' subjects, and is much exercised about preventing the publication of its executive secrets. Yesterday a stalwart messenger was stationed out side of each gallery door, all of which were securely locked, to keep newspaper men from listening. It is amusing these days to observe the efforts of democratic Senators to avoid office seekers at the Capitol. Every morning, an hour before the Senate convenes, applicants for Sena torial influence collect in the chamber and watch for their men. They ply the pages with questions in regard to Senator So and So. When does he usually come? at what hour does he enter? etc , and as the hour of noon draws near, the impatience cf the hungry constituent manifests itself. Five minute before noon the floor of the S.-nate is cleared of intruders, and the Democratic Senators are care ful not to make an appearance uutil after the IkxIv has been called to or der. At the'falling of the gavel tliey are protected bv the rules of the Sen ate, and they fiU in five minutes after the crowd of office seekers has filed out. Just now there is a great deal of talk among place hunting patriots about the ingratitude of lepublics. They thought after the election of Mr. Cleveland that there was to be a new deal all around. Everything that has been done was to be undone. Now they are sorely tried. The more eager they are for office, and the stronger their support, and the longer their petitions, the further they are led by li e new administration. An office seeker in making a calculation as to how long it will taki, at the present rate of progress, to turn the government over to the Democrats, reached a result bordering closely on two thousand years. There are 963 applicants tor the place he wants. The appointment of offices for the different executive departments con tinue to be rushed with work owing to the large number of applicants pour ing in. At the Treasury Department, Clerk Higgins, of iecent offensive fame, finds himself the recipient ot about 200 requests daily. At t le Department of Justice, the number of applications for office averages 300 daily, and at the Navy Departineut Secretar' Whitney Is flooded with the same kind of papers. There are several places in this city where people make a good living by preparing others tor civil service ex aminations. Just before and jut af ter the inauguration they had but lit tle businesss. People in office were uneasy, and the democrats did not believe that they would have to un dergo examinations to get them. Now the business is good again. Ac cording to the statement of one of the instructors, it takts about forty lessons of an hour each to finish one in the common branches. After such a course a person is expected to be abla to pass examination for a $1000 or $1200 position. Several of the new Senators were sworn iuto office this week, and the Senate will have but few vacancies upon - the adjournment of the present special session. The biennial change of one-third of its number introduces rjnt few pew faces. The Senator from NT3W York isprobahI the best known to the country, having been twice a cabinet minister. Mr. Evans lias distinguished himself by silence. He lias not 'spoken a word except to vote. Senator Blackburn is not new in Con gressional expeiien. He has served t ight years in the House from the old Henry Clay district of Kentucky. Senator Walthall, the successor of Senator Lamar, is a straight, athletic looking mm, with a keen face and thick, long hair. Senator Spooner, from Wisconsin is new to public life. He has red hair and looks not over twenty-five years old, although he is forty. Mr. Stanford, the new Repub lican Senator from California, is im posing in stature and weighs 240 pounds. Died with his Secret. About a year ago a young man made bis ap pearance in Grady town, a sub urbs of Atlanta, Ga. He was of pleasant address, industrious, mind ful of his own affairs, and soon made friends who thought of him highly. Among others he made the acquain tance of a 3'oung lad) of respectable family, whom he subsequently mar ried. The couple at once settled down to housekeeping, with prospects which seemed bright enough for ordi nary people. About a month ago the husband was stricken down with a disease which baffled the skill of the physicians, and on Friday night he itied. Several male friends of the family prepared the body for burial. About one of the dead man's ankles they found a shackle such as is used in a penitentiary. The chain had been broken off at the first, link, and the pool roan was unable to move the fatal ring which after death was to give the clue to his identity. The young men found their secret too great for concealment. Calling the wife to the side of the corpse, they asked her for an explanation, but she could give none. She had never seen the shackle before, and was even more mystified than the men who made the discovery. A policeman was called in, and recoguized the dead man as Jacob Harper, a notorious desperado, who had escaped from the penitenti ary, and for whose capture a large re ward was offered. The wife, thus being made aware that she had been the bride of a convict, fainted, and the greatest excitement followed. On being restored to consciousness, her relatives entreated her to have noth ing to do with the funeral, but she re fused their adtice, saying that as her husband had done his duty by her she would see bim buried with such bouors as she could give bin. Rev. II. R. Naylor, of the Metho dist denomination, Rev. W. A. Bart lett, of the Presbyterian, and Rev. W. A. Leonard, of the Episcopalean, all ministers of Washington, recently' called on the President and presented to him a memorial, urging him to sup port and strengthen in every way in his power the Edmunds anti-polygamy act. I he memorial was signed by a thousand or more clergymen and lay-1 men, including some of the mostl prominent divines in the United ' States. President Cleveland said he would give the subject atteution at his earliest convenience. I IST-A-SB-ST- Xhc Disappointment ot the Corners Over the Fombadalarof the Ir-i-drnt's Policy. From the Toledo Blade. J The Corners is enwrapped in gloom. Our regular coppy of the Looisville Kur rier Jernel cum last night, and in it wuz a announsement uv the President's de terminashen not to remove Fedrel offis holders till ther terms had expired. An tissipatin trubble I kep the paoer to my self but unforchinitly Joe liigler hap pened to be at the stashen at Seceshn ville. and bought a copy, wich he lmme jitly red, and still more immejitly per ceeded to make as public as possible.

The trial of Clark W. Sanders for the murder of Daniel Carr occupied the lime of the Washington county court at Montpelier, Judge Powers presiding alnwt one week. The part that Sanders shot Carr, who had se duced his wife and destroyed his do mestic peace, was not denied, and the effort of the defence was to show emo tional insanity in Carr. Dr. Draper, of the Vermont asylum was called as an expert. After listeuing to all the evideuce, he went upon the Stand on Wednesday morning, and stated his belief that Carr was not insaue and a rigid cross-examination failed to stir him from this opinion. He admitted that Sanders' mind .might not be sound ; that he might have, and prob ably did have, an imperfect organiza tion, bu. said the cii-cuinstauces and oddities testified to1ir-he'yiSi6us wi.nesses Wt-re not evidence of insan ity, but of his wrong organization.

B0WKER FERTILIZER CO B0 ST0N & N EW YORK Warren Leland, whom everybody knows aa the successful vanagerof the Largest Hotel Enterprises of America, says that while a passenger from Kew York on board a ship going arouud Cap Horn, in the eariy days of emigration to Cal ifornia, be learned that one of the officers of the Teasel bd cured himself, daring the Toy. age, ot an obstinate disease by the use ot Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Since then Mr. Lclakd hat recommended Avbr's Sarsaparilla in niany siiiillsr eases, and be has never yet heard of Ita fail, ure to effect a radical cure. Some years ago one of Mr. LBLAXn't farm laborers bruised his leg. Owing to the had state of hit blood, an ngly scrofulous swelling Or lump appeared on the Injured limb. Hor rible itcliiug of the tkin, with burning ana darting paint through the lump, made life almost Intolerable. The leg became enor mously enlarged, ami running ulcers formed, discharging great quantities of extremely Offensive matter. Ko treatment was ef any avail until the man, by Mr. Lklaito's diree. tion, was supplied with Aria's SaMAra Killa, which allayed the pain and Irritation, healed the sores, removed the swelling, and completely restored the limb to use. Mr. laiiAND has personally used Ayers Sarsaparilla for Rheumatism, with entire success ; and, after careful observation, declares that, la his belief, there Is no medicine la tha world qual to It for the cure of Liver Disorders, Gont, the effects or high Ulng, Salt Rheum, Sores, Ernptions, and all th war Ions forms of blood diseases. We hare Mr. Lrlahd's permission to Invite an who may desire further evidence In regard to tha extraordinary curative powers of Atkr's Sarsaparilla to tee hint parson, ally either at bit mammoth Ocean Hotel Long Branch, or at the popular Leland Hots Broadway, 27th and th Streets, New York.
