The oft repeated story about Gar land's daj3 in office being numbered is again told, bat we don't believe it Let as see, didn't we ase to hear from the Democratic newspapers and stamp speakers the oftrepeated cry "turn the rascals out?" The report of the Treasurer of the Irish National League shows that dur ing the past two years $425,000 have been sent to Ireland, and when we consider the channels of aid, it is not extravagant to estimate that during the last six years $1,000,000 have been subscribed in this country in behalf of the Nationalist movement A Sutter ZXerebaat's Advice. From the Rutland Herald. The following letter from one of the largest commission merchants who deals in butter, cheese, and eggs, in New York city, and who co-operated with leading dairymen in getting the recent legisla tion in Congress, is a very conclusive answer to the lies that have so many times been repeated in the anti-Edmunds papers in this state. This and Senator Morrill's letter ought to silence the detractors, but there is no reason to expect they will: 159 Chambers street, 1 New York, Aug. 18, 1886. Mr. C. C. Pierce, Secretary of the Rut land County Agricultural Society: Dear Sir, I see it reported in our New York papers that there is opposi tion to the re-election of Senator Ed munds. I hope he will be returned to the Senate, for the reason that ha is s $ood friend to the agriculturists and dairymen .of this country. He did ex cellent service in the United States Sen ate in favor of the oleomargarine bill. The farmers and dairymen of the United Statei should stand by their friends, who have proven themselves to be such by their past acts. I trust vour association will consider it their duty to favor tne re-eiection or benator Jt,a munds. Yours very truly, ames II. Seymour. How Blaine was Beaten. The prohibitionists beat us in New York, and yet I am a prohibitionist and be lieve in tne enforcement of the law to the Diwerena. Appiause.j liut l say deliberately that some of the prohibi tory leaders are unblushing, impudent scoundrels,who are helped by the Demo cratic party to defeat the "Republican party. I said some of the leaders. If I wanted to name them I could do so. They say the Republican party is not doing all it can do for temperance. Of course there never was a church that did all it could do for the promotion pf religion. But do you organize an other church against that one J? In my own district the prohibitionists have nominated a man for congress against mx. uingiey, tne strictest temperance man in the state, a man who has de voted nis nights and his davs to prohibi tion, and done more for it than all the rest of the prohibitionists together Ana yet tney nave nominated a man against him, and if they draw off votes rxom him they will elect now I have got my foot in it a brother-in-law of mine. Dr. Gordon. I know he cares nothing for prohibition and thinks it a nuisance. I am in favor of putting a pianx into tne national KepuDiican plat form in favor of prohibition. " I am in favor of the Republican party shoulder ing pronioiuon, ana x Know mat m time the party would conquer under inac Banner. senator jrrye of Maine. A Conundrum. A prominent citizen is propounding this conundrum : It is a well Known and admitted fact that the vast majority of the Republicans of Caledonia county are in favor of tem perance and the prohibitory law ; and it needs no argument to prove that the political prohibitionists will make all their converts from the Republican party. Now, supposing that the pro hibitionists convert to their third party not merely a few scores or hundreds, but the whole Republican party ; how would the case stand then ? Would it not leave things just about as they are now? We can tell our friend what would happen in the case he supposes. Three men who wanted office and couldn't get it would immediately begin to kick. They would be joined by twenty-seven cranks, and the thirty would hold a convention, pass resolu tions denouncing the old party as an ally of rum-sellers, and put up a straight ticEet witn tneir own names on it. Then they would travel throueh the county claiming that they were the only true and genuine temperance men, and that an otners were irauds. That is what would happen. History repeats itseu. of. jonnsoury Jtepuoncan. Mr. Blaine on the Tariff. In his speech at Sebago Lake on Tuesday night jyir. iiame snowea mat during tne re cent session of Congress the Republi cans were an due unanimous lor protec tion, while the vast majority of Demo cratic members were against it. In the nine states wnere the greatest number of people are employed in manufactur ing, tne aeposits m the savings banks were only $160,000,000 in 1861, when the Republicans enacted the Morrill tariff, and during the 25 years in which protec tion has been enforced, these deposits Have increased to more man i,u-ju,ooo,-000. During that time the population has increased but 35 per cent, and the people's savings have increased 800 per cent. The same protective policy has served to give an enormous development to industries in the West. A larger number oi workers in tne untisn empire have only four-tenths the savings of those in the New England and Middle States. A Good Rule to go By. The great anxiety of the Democrats of this State to deieat tne re-eiection or benator Ed munds is alone a good reason for his election. The military rule, to do what your enemy don't want done, is just the one for this election. Bellows Falls Times. Letter from California San Francisco, Cal Sept. 10, 1886 Editors News and Citizen : I have been reading the dailies pub lished here, but get little satisfaction from them as to news from New Eng land. In fact, so far as news from home is concerned we might as well be on another continent. How glad we would be to see the Citizen and read the news from home. I will try and tell you something of our visit to the Golden Coast, and of this most interesting city by the side of the "Golden Gate." We arrived in Oak land some time in the night August 1st, and crossed over the bay to this beautiful city, Monday morning, Aug ust 2d, and then first began to realize the reception awaiting the arrival of the Grand Army of the Republic. "Welcome, comrades, welcome to the G. A R," and similar mottoes, were hung everywhere, on private houses and business places alike. The entire city was hung with flags and bunt ing, many places being decorated very expensively. At no place has the G A. R. received such open-hearted kindness as here. It was such a re ception as western people only know how to extend, among whom the ban Franciscoans are pre-eminent. Tues day, Aug. 3d, the day for the grand parade, opened fine and clear, the trade-winds comiDg in from the Pa cific cool enough so that the march of the comrades would not be as weari some as might be expected on an August dav. The line of march was formed on Van Ness Avenue, a beau tiful broad street, through which we marched and counter-marched to Mar ket street, down Market to Kearney, up Kearney to California, along this to Bush street, down Bush to Market, thence to the place of review, a dis tance of four and one-half miles Along the entire route it was one con tinued ovation, people wild with cheer and excitement, the Green Mountain boys receiving their share. It is es timated that 350,000 people witnessed this line of march. It was told in Portland last summer by the Califor nia delegates that if we would go to California they would strew flowers in our wav. And sure enough. Two large wagon loads of cut flowers moved in advance of the column, from which ladies strewed the way, besides a continuous rain of boquets from the crowd on the balconies and sidewalks. Every promise made at Portland was more than fulfilled. The Alcazar theater was engaged as head-quarters for the G. A. R., where a grand spread of refreshments, fruits, wines, etc., such as only California can give, was awaiting the comrades after the re view was completed. This theater building was kept open and the sup ply of food, fruit and wine kept up during the week, free to all comrades of the G. A. R. Excursions to some attractive points were planned every day for a week, Sacramento, Montery, Oakland, Santa Cruz, and San Jose being among the pleasantest. Satur urday, Aug. 7, an excursion around the harbor was planned. Five of the best steam-ships of the Pacific coast were tendered the G. A. R. for a free ride ou the Pacific. Tickets were is sued and about eight thousand com rades were afloat on the occasion. It was our good fortune to receive tick ets upon the flag-ship Santa Rosa, and oar trip was around the islands in the harbor and out through the "Golden Gate" upon the broad ocean far enough to discover the Faralone Islands in the distance, and give many a fair taste of seasickness. AU those on the upper deck sighted a fine school of whales. I believe there is no seen ery In the world that can surpass that around the Bay of San Jb rancisco and the Golden Gate. This has been day that will ever be precious to the memory of the G. A. R. Sacramento is a remarkable city in many respects, perhaps in none more so than in the beauty of its situation and surrounding scenery. The city is built between the ocean and bay npon a mountainous peninsula, which is about thirty miles long and terrain ates with low hills and small valley in a point about six miles wide. The city inciuaes an area oi aoout six miles. The highest peaks within the limits reach to aa elevation of nearly one thousand feet. Jones street hill is 375 feet high, Telegraph Hill 300 feet, Rincon Hill 120 feet, and are covered with fine houses and reached by the cable cars with rapidity and ease. lhe "hundred hilled city would be an appropriate name for San Francisco. Many of these hills command panoramic views of the city the bay, the harbor, with its shipping and forests of masts, the long wharves and pile bridges that run far out into the water. Considering these scenes a part of a great gr.wp, familiarity with which is necessary to appreciate its full beauty and situation, I venture to assert that it surpasses any other great city or the Union. The archi tecture is varied and elegant, showing an abundance of columns, richly carved capitals and cornices, together with a great variety of bay windows and projections. The yards and gar dens are Bpacious and beautiful, pro ducing the greatest luxuriance of foil age and flowers. Fuchsias, gerani urns, roses, calla lilhes, carnation pinks, and almost every variety of tropical plants grow luxunantly and uioom continuously throughout the year ; never any frost to check even calla lillies. Geraniums, fuchsias and English ivies cover the fences. trellises and arbors, and ahow such an extravigance of leaf and bloom that these homes often seem like fairy land. The most common shade trees are the Monterey cypress, pine, pal metto, palm, magnolia, Chinese gum . , , . . . iree anu eucaiytus. ine partes are said to be as green in January as in July, and in every month of the year many varieties ot wild and cultivated plants may be seen in bloom. Some of the public buildings of note are city hall, the mint, a massive building of the Doric style, Palace Hotel, the largest on the continent, erected at a cost or 5700,000, and perfect in all its appointments. The Occidental, Baldwin and Lick House are hotels that in almost any other city would be called elaborate. The Lick House re calls the memory of James Lick, who came here In 1847 a poor man, but by dint of hard labor and fortunate investments in cheap land, became immensely wealthy, and died leaving an estate oi tnree million dollars for San Francisco institutions. The the atres, churches, school-houses, and If Ll' 1 . ... uu puuuc Dunomgs are built upon a massive scale, and in appearance are in keeping with the splendor that is everywhere exhibited. The people are a mixed class or all national t.ipn or the globe, yet they seem well unit ed, socially and in a business wav. ana together rorm one grand cosmn- pontan town. Chinatown is an inter esting place for every Easterner, and no one should leave the Pacific coast without having "done" Chinatown. This is not an isolated part, made up of low, poor hovels, as most are wont to believe, but is a section of the old part of the town, about four. blocks one way and three the other, between Dupont and Kearney and Sacramento to Pacific street. Into this small space is crowded more than 20,000 Chinamen. Do you wonder how they live? Well, they are hud dled together like sardines in a box, eating and sleeping in the smallest conceivable space, in by-ways, alleys and subterranean passages. Their cooking is all done upon open fires, with no flues or chimneys, or ventila tion whatever, all the odors, fumes and soot permeating every part of their homes. Wo description can con vey a clear idea of the appearance of the houses and people of the district. It must be seen. The houses, the front shop windows, the wares, the industries, the books, the calculating machines, are all strange to white men : a queer people. A. O. Gates STATE ITEMS. There are over thirteen hundred Knights of Labor in Rutland. Mrs. Thaddeus Brooks, colored, living about half a mile beyond Gage's on the road to Saxton s Kiver, at tempted suicide last Wednesday after noon by taking ammonia. J. E. Harris, recently of the Bur lington Clinver. has engaged to do the legislative work and take editori al charge of the Montpelier Watch man, which will be issued as an after noon paper during the session of the legislature. John C. Ely, representing a New York syndicate, has the refusal of the Ely copper mine property atThetford, at $80,000. The prospect is favora ble for its purchase and an early re sumption ot wort in tne mine, which has lain idle since the riots two years ago. About 20 log men at the steam mill of the Fall Mountain paper company at Bellows Falls, struck for higher pay on Tuesday of last week. They were receiving $2 a day and their de mand was declined. Their places were filled with other men. A most disastrous fire broke out in South Rovalton Monday evening at about 10 o clock, and spread rapidly. Some 20 business houses and 12 resi dences were burned. With help from Northfield, Roj'alton, West Randolph and White River Junction it wa3 with the greatest difficulty that the fire could be subdued. The loss is esti mated at from $50,000 to $100,000. Dr. J. G. Johnson, of Center Rut land, who owns a fancy stock farm, will exhibit at the Rutland county fair this month 40 head of imported Jer seys, six imported Jrercheron stall ions, six imported Percheron mares, four coops of imported poultry, and one coop or Japanese peacocks, and will drive a tandem team of his six imported stallions with elegant har nesses, now on the way from Fans. The new check-list law will operate to reduce the vote on State ticket this year below that usual in off years. No one can vote unless his name is on the check-list of the town or city of his residence, and he can vote only in such town. Every freeman, there fore, should bear this in mind and make his arrangements to be at home on the day of election. So much in terest prevails in some localities, that notwithstanding this new law, a fairly full vote may be expected. As Hon. William M. Evarts was driving in his carriage at Windsor last Wednesday, accompanied by Charles B. Perkins, of New York, and a daughter of Judge Matthews, of Ohio, and when near his farm, the bits of the horses gave away and they ran. I he coachman attempted to jump to the horses head and stop them, but was run over by the coach Mr. Evarts and Miss Matthews were thrown from the carriage and severely braised, Mr. Jvarts injuries bein less than at first was feared. Mr. Perkins was thrown against a stone wall and instantly killed, his head being crushed in. The accident has cast a deep gloom over the village and carries deep sorrow to many. The Vermont association of road and trotting horse breeders holds its second annual meeting at Rutland Sept. 8, 9 and 10. This promises to be the largest and best exhibition of fine and high-bred horses ever shown in Vermont, and will include all the distinguished stallions of the region with their get. There will be seven contests of speed, four heing colt races, for two, three, four and five years-olds : race for 2.40 stallions race for mares and stallions ; and special purse of $600, which will be trotted for by some of the noted fly ers of the day. The object of this association is to improve the breed of road and trotting horses, the produc tion of which ranks among the pres ent leading industries of the State. lhe Chinese continue to go and to come, it is reported that large num Ders or tne proscribed race are smug gled into this country by wav of Mexico and more trustworthy reports from the region or .aiasKa indicate a Dumose on the part of the white settlers there to drive tne enraese out. Customs in spectors on the Mexican border claim that they have no adequate means at hand to prevent Chinamen cominc into the United States in that way, and the authorities are perplexed to know how to cope with the difficulty. Up in Alas ka, the question is being settled in the Daruarian style. At .Douglass Island near jomeau, eighty-six Chinamen whose discharge had been refused by their employers, were forced on hoard two schooners and sent out to sea. At the latest accounts the vessels had not succeeded in landing elsewhere, and were still beatmz about in sio-hf-. nf i umeau.

Disastrous earthquakes are reported from Greece and lesser shocks in Italy and Egypt. In the first named coun try the loss of life amounts to 300 souls. All those killed were inhabit ants of the towns of Pyrgo and Phil iatra, on the western coast of the Morea. The destruction of property in the former town is complete, for not a house is left standing, and Phil iatra is almost swept away. The shocks were experienced throughout the whole of Greece. The earth quakes in .Italy and Egypt did damage, as far as is reported. no Cruel jokers told a feeble minded youth in a Canadian town that one of the graves in a cemetery near by was his. lie visited the snot and seeini? stone bearing the name of "Fred," concluded that meant him, and began to open the grave to free his body.
