Its numbers were rather less than usual Wolcott's representative, F. N. Har ris, was on hand as usual. Beiug postmaster, he thought it a proper op portunity doubtless to show his re gard ( ?) for President Cleveland's general order directing officials of his appointment not to be prominent in politics. Morristown, the largest in population in the County, contributed as her share of the mass convention, Postmaster Rich. It was right that at a mass convention the town have some representative, and inasmuch as no body else cared enough about it to at tend, why shouldn't Postmaster Rich fill what would otherwise have been a vacuum ? But we forbear. Both Har ris and Rich are really first-class citi zens and sincere Democrats, and we refer to the fact of their being present simply to show what every sensible observer already knows, that the rank and file of the Democratic party not only possess, but are willing to mani fest publicly, a supreme disgust at the position the President has taken on this subject. The proceedings of the convention were harmonious, and Congressman Brigham indulged in his usual denun ciations of the Republican party. A stenographic report of his speech would not be publishablc, for should rnn out of tr'a. rl's. dashes and it.

Considerable has been said of late concerning oleomargarine, and while many doubtless have grown tired of this subject and will say now that a law has been passed taxing the stuff " give us a rest," we do not believe our farmer readers are among that number. We think they will be in terested in the following communica tion taken from the St. Albans Mes senger. The writer of the article shows that W. H. Parker, Esq., Re publican candidate for State's Attor ney, introduced the first bill in our State Legislature to tax imitation butter : Edi tor Messenger : The first bill eyer introduced before any legislative body for the purpose of protecting legitimate butter against " ox butter," by imposing a tax and license, was house bill !No. 187 by W. II. Parker, member of the Ver mont legislature of 1S84 from Cam bridge. The substance of the bill was that on each pound of oleomargarine, butter ine, or other substitute for butter manu factured in the state, the person manu facturing the same should pay into the state treasury the sum of fifteen cents. A person might obtain a license to sell in the state, oleomargarine, butter ine, or other substitute for butter, for one year at wholesale, by paying to the treasurer of the state ten thousand dol lars, and at retail by paying the treas urer of the state two thousand dollars. The bill was so drawn that penalty was imposed in the one case of false return, of five hundred dollars, and in case of no return, one thousand dollars, and for selling without a license a penalty of five hundred dollars, and all necessary provisions for collecting, etc., were fully provided for. During the session of 1884 many peti tions were presented to the legislature praying for the passing of a law prohibi ting the sale and manufacture of oleo margarine, butterine and other substi tute for butter. A law prohibiting the manufacture and sale no doubt would have been un constitutional, and there is no doubt that the bill taxing the article would have been constitutional. The bill was referred to the committee on agriculture in the house ; several hearings were hud before that committee on the bill, and Mr. Parker appeared before the commit tee as often as desired. The result was, the bill was amended before the com mittee by placing the pound tax at ten cents, reducing the wholesale license to 56,000, the retail to 1,000, making a penalty for each offense, and one-half of the penalty to go tome compiamauu ue bill was reported to the house favorably. When the question of third reading came ud a sharp discussion tooK place. Mr. Parker defended the bill, assisted by others. Dillingham or vaterDury, Barrett of Rutland and others opposed the third reading, but the bill was saved in the house, a third reading or dered, and subsequently the bill was passed bv the house. It went to the senate, where it was referred to the committee on agriculture, (there is one member of the present board of agricul ture who identified himself with the op ponents of the bill and helped to defeat it before the senate committee ; a good man for a board of agriculture in this or any other state,) and was there killed. The senate of the state of Vermont killed a bill that was calculated to pro tect the principal and most important industry of the state. Now the object of this bill was two-fold : 1st, to protect our own state interests : 2d. to put upon our statute book a law that was clearly constitutional, and that other states would copy. T&9 Anti-Saloon Movement. The " anti-saloon " Republican move ment which was started in New Jersey, and ha3 since received the approval of Republicans in several other btates, is to be formally inaugurated in a national form at a convention to be held in Chi cago on the 16th of September, at which delegates are expected to be present trom a majority or the .Northern fetates. The object of the movement, as stated by its projectors, is to abridge ana coun teract trie political mnuence or saloon- Itn ronsnlilate nnhlir. sentiment, in sun-I bpprutra anil liniirtrwlASilfaTK in lpcrialat.ion dli pore oi existing law s ionne suppression of the admitted evils of the traffic, and to nlsr.fi t.hfi Rennhlican nartv on a rlat- fnrm nt parnpar. svmnat.hv o.-irn r.n work of practical temperance reform, The movement will, no doubt, operate to the prejudice of the partv, tempora- riIVj some localities; but, if wisely directed, it must in the end give that party an enormous advantage over any organization which may antagonize its ainla- . . , . . . . . , . . . ... The truth is, that the decision of the Question as to whether the liquor inter- st ,f 5,he country shall be permitted to break down all the muniments of law and order cannot much longer be post poned with satetv to the puduc interests. There is scarcely an important town or city in the whole Union in which this interest is not openly defiant of law and all the restraints ot orderly government. In the Legislatures of many States it is supreme, defeating every effort to sub ject it to proper limitations.

Tllden. Samuel J. Tilden died at his coun try residence, Greystone, near Yonk ers, N. Y., on Wednesday morning of last week. His death at this time was entirely unexpected, and was due to heart failure. Mr. Tilden was born in New Lebanon,, N.Y., Feb. 9, 1814. His education was begun in the local schools ; he spent a year at Yale col lege, and graduated at the New York university in 1838. He wa3 admitted to the bar in 1841. From early years he took great interest in politics and was an admiring follower of Jefferson and Jackson. He was elected to the assembly in 1845, and was a free-soil democrat during the long struggle against slavery that ended with the surrender of the southern confeder acy. Until near fifty years of age he devoted his great powers to business, and amassed a large fortune, much of which was swept away in the panic of 1857 and the next few years ; but by his great financial abilities he erected a still greater fortune. He was elected governor of New York in 1874, on nomination of the democratic party, and in 1876 he was nominated for the presidency. He made the presiden tial canvass with the same care an.l skill which he gave to all other mat ters, and the campaign was managed throughout under his own personal direction. Ihe election of that year was followed by the dispute over the electorial commission. The country at large has never believed that Mr. Tilden countenanced the threats of an appeal to arms on the part of his followers, which marked that stormy period, but the revelations in regard to the attempt of his New York mana gers and friends, through the famous "cipher telegrams, to buy electoral votes in the South and in Oregon, greatly injured him in the eyes of the people. Mr. Tilden left an estate of about 85,000,000. It is said that $2,000,000 i3 given to relatives and 83,000,000 to public charities. He never married. The Axti-Saloox Movement. The llepublican istate Committee held a meeting at Montpelier on the 3d inst., to appoint delegates to attend the Na tional Anti-Saloon Republican Confer ence to be held in Chicago in September. The following members of the commit tee were present: C. S. Page of La moille county, F. V. Baldwin of Orleans county. Li.O. Greene of W indsor county, L. M. Read of Windham county, John C. Stearns of Orange county, AI. A. Bingham of Chittenden county, Olin Merrill of Franklin county.S. D. Ilob son of Essex county and A. R. Manning of Grand Isle county. The members of the committee expressed themselyes as heartily in sympathy with the anti-saloon movement. The committee se lected the following representative Re publicans for appointment as delegates and alternates to attend the conference: Hon. W. C. Dunton of Rutland, Con gressman John W. Stewart of Middle bury, Col. John B. Mead of Randolph, Frank Plumley, Esq., of Northfleld, Editor L. O. Greene of the Woodstock Standard, Editor D. M. Camp of the Newport Express, ex-Gov. John L.

In 1884 a Republican administration paid off and cancelled 8110,000,000 of inter est-bearing bonds. In 1883 it paid off S125.000.000 of bonds. In 1S82 75,000,- 000 and in 1881 SS4,000,000 of bonds were cancelled and paid by the same admin istration. The present democratic aa ministration is paying off bonds at the rate of only $45,000,000 a year, or barely enougn to meet tne requirements ot tne CratiC administration ha8 done Some BiiiKinir tuna, liut ue present, aemo- i "lliis u iiiuum-ou oummiijuor tion did not do.

Cleveland Leaner. How rapidly the candidates for presi dent and vice-president in recent years have passed away. There are only two ex-presidents living Hayes and Arthur. Cleveland is the only Democratic candi date for president living. Of the Re publican candidates only three survive Fremont, Hayes and Blaine. It is re markable, also, that four Democratic nominees for president, one ex-presideut and one vice-president, died within a single year. It is an illustrious list that is inscribed on death's remorseless rec ord of a twelvemonth Grant, Seymour, dricks.

We give extracts from letters writ ten by A. O. Gates, giving some ac count of the G. A. R. excursion : We failed to secure a chartered car from Vermont, but had a special car from St. Albans to Chicago, filled with a jolly crowd of Vermonters. We reached Chicago at 10 a. m. Friday and stopped there one day to make more perfect ar rangements for the journey, and there parted with our boy Oscar, who we sent to his uncle, at Oneida, 111. 1 went to the office of the Pullman Car Co., which is under the management of E. A. Jew ett, formerly of St. Johnsbury, and through his influence chartered a car to the coast for $425. We reached Rock Island about sunset and halted for about hnlf nn hour on the. new iron hriilorn that. crosses tne Mississippi, where we ob- talnedavery fine view of Rock Island, Council Bluffs at 9.30 a. in. Sunday and awaited the arrival of the rest of the New England contingent. There will be 30 or 40 cars from New England and we start into the "Godless country" together The people here call all east of the Mis souri "God s country," and all west the "Godless country." We have lair weath er every day, mercury reaching SO de grees at noonday; nights cool and re freshing. There has been very little rain west ot Ohio since May, and Illinois' crops are in bad shape. Leaving Omaha Sunday at C p. m., we rolled away westward, up the valley of the Platte River, and until dark saw some of the broadest fields of grain, and in the healthiest condition, of any on the way, We arrived at Columbus, Neb. at 9.30 p. m. This is called the center town from ocean to ocean. Monday morning we found ourselves at North Platte, a beautiful town at the forks of the North and South Platte. We are now in the buffalo-grass region : blue, dry and far stretching prairies, limited in the dis tance by sharp, rocky bluffs. Villages of prairie-dogs are numerous ; also vast herds of cattle, held here and there by cow-boys, seeking the best places for food and water. Thousands upon thou sands of cattle roam the plains upon each 6ide of the railroad. e arrived at Len ver at 5 p. ni. Monday, July 20.

We were read v to start at 8 a. nr., and divided Into sections of eight to twelve cars, hauled by the Mogul engines built purposely lor haulm" trains up tnis sorse. with a erade of 175 feet to the mile for 50 miles. This canyon is one of the wildest of the Rockies that cleaves the hills asunder to form this huge path way for man. Through this beautitul and stupendous gorge runs the track of the Denver and Rio Grande narrow gage railroad. In this ffulch you are shut ill by rocky sides that find their summits far up in eternal snow. Every moment it seems that the road must terminate abruptly. Having passed up 37 miles of the canyon, the grandeur constantly in creasing, we come to tne oeautitm town of Idaho Springs, 7000 feet above the sea, with a population of 6000. Thirteen miles further, at an altitude of 8,000 feet, we reach Georgetown, with a population of 4,000. As we pass up out of the lim its of the city, we observe above our heads an iron bridge, crossing from one mountain to the other, 8G feet above the track we are on. We soon find ourselves ou me onuge we out a lew moments ue- fore looked up to, and have formed the world famed Georgetown loop. We soon reach Silver Plume, an air line distance of one mile, but we have climbed 240 feet The cost of building tills bit of road was a little over $S00,000, and the whole cost from Georgetown to Grayiuont, a dis tance of eight miles, was S4G5.000. At Graymont you are confronted with Gray's Peak, its peak in eternal snow and our selves almost up to snow line. Here we remained an hour for lunch and sight seeing, when we commenced the descent, making; the trip at the rata ot 15 miles an hour, and iu good season reached Den ver. Twenty-four years ago wild beasts roamed over the site of Denver, which is now the gateway to the great mineral Rocky Mountains famous, and the home of from 65,000 to 75.000 inhabitants.

We think many farmers travel too much in doing their business, and thus add largely to their expenses It is claimed that a pound of notk can be produced at a les3 cost than a pound of poultry, which is true only to a certain extent, In some sections the pork is the cheapest, while in oth ers the pouftry has the advantage Hut let the cost per pound be what it may, the price of poultry is always higher than that 01 pork, and hence there is more profit in poultry than in pork.

The first silk bat is said to have been made for a French sea captaiu in China fifty years ago. "Nothing but the air admitted free" is a significant notice in one Chicago theatre. A Dakota paper says prairie chick ens are beginning to tassel out. A negro colony from the South will soon be on the way to California, the object being to raise cotton. The Chinese are pouring into Bur mah, much to the disgust of the na tives, who see in John Chinaman a formidable rival. The date for unveiling the Barthol di Statue has not been definitely de cided upon, but it will probably be the 20th of next October. Some thirty French representatives will be pres ent. New Jersey has mosquitoes, and now Long Island is complaining that a magnified June bug is making life unhappy for the summer sojourners on the south shore. A Chicago firm recently had an order for an ornamental iron fence, "large enough to inclose the grave of a young man about twenty-five years of age." Look out for the August meteors about now. They will be most nu merous in the north-eastern sky, in the constellation Perseus. Here is good news for the pickle eater. The crop on Long Island, which usually amounts to about 50, 000,000 pickles or cucumbers, will be nearly double this year. Letters mailed in hotel envelopes are sent to the dead letter office, not withstanding the 10 days return no tice on the corner, when they fail to reach the person addressed. Corn throughout New England is unusually backward this season, and according to present indications the crop will be light. An elephant belonging to a circus, engaged in a prize fight with two cam els while the three were traveling in one railroad car the other daj-, and used them so badly as to kill one and injure the other so that he had to be shot. A veteran hotel proprietor at Long Island says it costs 98 cents a head per diem to feed his guests, counting all wastage. The remainder of the $6 to $8 a day goes for music and other luxuries and for the profits. Two hundred and fifty pilgrims have left Russia for Jerusalem during the piesent summer, and active prep arations are being made in several parts of the country to celebrate the ninth century of the introduction of Christianity into Russia. A polite English lawyer, who found thst a serious conflagration was pro ceeding in his coat tails, apologized to the bench for the incident, and then divested himself of his coat and hur ried out of the court room in his shirt sleeves. There aro 3600 eunchs in the Impe rial palace at Pekin. They are treat ed very severely and placed under strict regulations, but when they get into favor, as they often do, they wield enormous power, owing to their imme diate contact with the Emperor and Empress. It is highly popular this season to make brief visits to inexpensive re sorts, and for those who cannot de vote long periods to rest and recrea tion there is much to be gained in these brief moments of change. A day spent at the seashore, a Sunday rest among the inns, will refresh a business man or any one devoted to office work for a much longer time than the time spent in actual vaca tion. A mammoth elevator project ha3 been arranged by the Washburn flour ing mills of Minneapolis. A small house between two large ones is to hold all the machinery, and the grain is to be carried on belts from the smaller building to the larger, the lat ter having a storage capacity of over a million bushels each. It is estimat ed that 15,000 bushels can be trans terreu each way to each house per hour. Wiggins insists that the great storm which he predicted for this fall will be on hand. He says "September will open cold and stormy, premonitory to mv great storm, commencing on the 29th, and the great war of the ele ments will come as sure as the sun is in the heavens. It will be a storm of unparalleled violence, and after sweep ing across the Atlantic and traversing the conuntry, will exhaust its energy upon the rugged front offered by the Rocky Mountains." An eccentric farmer at Hartford, Ind., is engaged in the task of eu deavoring, by walking many miles each day upon an improvised track, to wear away three layers which he imagines have been added to his feet. He began his tireless walk about two years ago, and keeps upon his feet eighteen hours out of the twentr-four. Instead of being made weak by the exercise, he is growing stronger ever3T day. His limbs are firm as iron and his tendons like whip cord. He has now walked some 60,000 miles and his pace is increasing daily. He is rational on all other subjects. The eye-stone, which is so efficient in removing foreign bodies from the eye, is oiten said to be "aave, be cause it moves about when put in vin egar. it is composed ot calcareous material, which when placed in the acid is made to move by carbonic acid gas evolved from contact with the liquid. The eye-stone is the front door, as it were, to the shell of a lit tie molluscous animal of tlie South American coast, and closes up the shell after the animal has gone in, so as to serve as a protection. The opinion common among moun- ain tourists mat a munuer siorm may be observed oeiow tne stanu 111 ! V point of the spectator, is disputed by a German scientist. He believes this can happen only on the summits of very high mountains, as careful ob servations on the Alps have convinced him that the height above the earth of the lowest stratum of clouds in a thunder storm is never less than 4200 feet, while generally it is more than 7500 feet.

This elepantly.bred stallion was purchased when a yearling by the late Mr. Benj. K. Bates for 1000, expressly to take the place of his re nowned sire on the Bates Farm. As will be seen by the following statement ol pedigree, he is full of Ethan Allen ami Abdallali blood, his sire, Daniel Lambert, being the best son of old Ethan Allen, out of Fanny Cook, by Abdullah, (sire of Kysdyk's Ilambletonian,) while his dam, Clara Is daughter of Ethan, out of the Dr. Dixon mare, also by Abdallali. It is therelore not to ba wonder ed at that he looks ami acts more like Daniel Lambert than any other one of his offsprings. His color is a nice chestnut, he stands l.'i hands and weighs 1000 lbs., with tlie most beautiful style, action and disposition imaginable. His record of-J.iH 3-4 was made Nov. 1, lss3, after a brief preparation and an unfavorable day. He has shown full mile trials in 2.-3 3-8, and quarters in 34 seconds. The superiority of the Lambert stock is too well known to require elaborate explanation. Daniel Lambert is the lirst of living sii'3s, judged by tlie true test, the 2.30 list, and his sons are showing remarkable prepotency. Cobden as a stock horse will in due time add to his sire's fame.
