MORRISVILLE AND HYDE PARK,
SEPTEMBER 16th, 1886.
The election guns in Maine and
Vermont do not echo much of a Cleve
land approval.
The great Democratic gains in the
Legislature, owing to so-called Repub
lican disaffection, loudly proclaimed in
certain quarters, are yet to be heard
of.
There is a report abroad that Presi
dent Cleveland has offered Senator
John R. McPherson, of New Jer
sey, the position of secretary of the
treasury after Mr. Manning's retire
ment, which is soon expected.
There is but one of the Cabinet
officers at his post in Washington.
"When the Republican President Grant
and officials were off on their summer
vacations considerable was said by
the Democratic papers a3 to the awful
sin of " absenteeism."
Charleston has been laid in ruins
four times. Once by fire in 1838,
when 1,158 buildings were burned,
once by earthquake, sue nas suown
a wonderful power of recuperation,
but it is doubtful now if the city ever
becomes herself again. The people
are badly frightened and probably
many of them, not caring to undergo
a simir experience, will seek homes
elsewhere.
We state elsewhere in this issue
that outside of Rutland County, which
from local causes was somewhat
mixed, the entire Greenback and scat
tering vote in the State as given by
the Free Press is only 203. By ref
erence to our tabulated returns in an
other column it will be seen that more
than half of this number (121) were
cast in this countv. In fact two of
the five members of the State ticket,
Truman Smith of Stowe for Governor
and Col. E. B. Sawyer oi Hyde Park
for State Auditor are from our little
county. Col. Sawyer is the recog
nized leader of the Greenbackers in
this county. His proclivities, his in
stincts and idiosyncrasies, all draw him
towards the party of his former affilia
tions, and it is hard work for him, we
think, to resist his strong inclinations
to return. But thus far he and his
little Spartan band of followers are
reluctant to desert their standard,
even though the party has so far dis
banded in Vermont as to be virtually
extinct outside of Lamoille.
xThe acknowledged leader of the
it Vermont House of Representa-
es is Hon. Luke P. Poland of Wa-
ervUle. But, lest our neighbor Free
Press, should intimate that Lamoille
County again has " some scheme or
candidate of its own," we forbear to
suggest his name as Speaker. We do
not fcnow that the Judge would ac
cept the position if unanimously ten
dered to him. Poland aside, we
think that there will be a general and
cordial unanimity of expression in fa
vor of elevating to the Speaker
ship the Hon. Josiah Grout, member
elect from Derby. Major Grout has
had a good experience in the Legisla
ture in fact has been once elected
Speaker to fill out the unexpired term
caused by the resignation of Judge
Powers, who on being elected Justice
or tne supreme uourt in 1874, re
signed his position as Representative
from the town of Morristown. Al
though Major Grout occupied the
chair but a short time, he gave evi
dence of rare fitness for the position,
and we predict that he will make a
popular presiding officer.
The result of our recent election
is quite gratifying. Gov. Ormsbee
proves to have above the average of
off-year majorities, being according
to latest returns 18,442, with a plu
rality of 20,499 over Mr. Shurtleff-
the vote standing Ormsbee 37,713
Shurtleff 17,214. The total Prohib
ition vote is only 1,552. The county
of Rutland gives 402 scattering votes
nearly all from the Town ot Rutland
which elected James P. Hosran the
"Labor" candidate as representative
The (Greenback ana Jfrouioilion par
ties fail to have a single Representa
tive in either house or senate. In fact
the entire Greenback and scattering
vote combiued, outside of the 402 in
Rutland county, growing out of the
Workingman's split in the village of
utland. i3 onlv 203 votes. Returns
bave been received from all the towns
in me state ana snow only ll JJcmo
crats out of the entire 239 Represen
- tatives elected, being much less than
their average representation. The
county of Lamoille for the first time
in many years sends a solid Republi
can delegation, and so far as known
every one is for Edmunds. We give
elsewhere the vote in thi3 county on
Governor, Congress and County offi
cers. jiAUfE n. lection. j.ne election in
Maine Monday gave an unusually
large Republican majority. J. R.
Bodwell is elected Governor by a plu
rality estimated at 12,500. Congress
man Reed is returned by about 1,200
plurality, and Congressmen Dingley,
Milliken and Boutelle by larger ma
jorities, lbe Legislature is over
whelmingly Republican. The Prohi
bitionists poll about 3,500 votes.
America Keeps the Ccp. The
second race between the English cut
ter Galatea and the Boston sloop
Mayflower, was sailed Saturday off
Sandy Hook, and resulted in a victo
ry for the Mayflower as did the one
on the Tuesday previous. This de
cides the contest, best two in three,
and the cup that was won in England
by the schooner-yacht America in
1851 still remains in America. This
is the fifth or sixth effort that English
men have made to win it back, and
have as often, failed.

It is claimed that Judge Haselton,
the Democratic representative from
Burlington, will be rather favorable to
Edmunds.
Now that Senator Edmunds is as
good as re-elected, Hiram Atkins had
better crawl into a hole and take the
hole in after him. Boston Herald.
Judge Poland will represent Water

legislation will be of great service.
Free Press.
The people of Vermont are stead
fast in their Republican faith. They
are still progressive and do not put
their trust in the party of reaction on
national affairs. Bellows Falls Times.
In Troy the election was held at
the North, and the Democrats, assist
ed by some Republicans, worked with
gratifying unanimity in support of
their regular nominee, the Hon. J.
W. Currier.
Gen. Grout expresses the opinion
that out of the 50 members from the
three northeast counties four-fifths will
be for Edmunds, though the opposi
tioa has been stealthily at work,
especially in Orleans and Essex
counties.
If ever a man got a rebuke from
the people for his methods of political
management, Hiram Atkins got it on
Tuesday. No wonder Mr. Atkins
does not indulge in a word of his cus
tomary shouting and exultation in his
paper this week. Phcenix.
Bradford, which has been for many
years one of the chief strongholds of
the Democrats in this state, has elect
ed John C. Stearns for representative
Mr. btearns is the ex-collector or in
ternal revenue, and is a stanch sup
porter of Senator Edmunds.
At Jay, Honsinger was Democrat
ic candidate with Edson Hunt and
Rev. Taylor Buzzell the Republican
candidates. Some six or seven bal
lots were necessary to elect Buzzell,
who 13 pastor of the Baptist church at
that place and an Edmunds man,
The workingmen carried the day at
Rutland, electing their candidate for
town representative, Mr. James I?
Hogan, by a vote ot 1645 to 744 for
Smith, the Republican candidade, and
247 for Wardell the straight Demo
crat. Also their entire justice ticket
At Lowell, the first ballot resulted
in no choice of candidate W. E. Cur
tis leading his main opponent, Edgar
Cooledge. The second ballot elected
Curtis, who is an Edmunds Republi
can, by 10 majority, and Fred Lam
bert, Democrat, had 15 votes cast in
his favor.
At Westfield election was generally
quiet with but one ballot and George
Ii. Hoyt was coolly chosen represent
ative with 103 votes of the total 196,
and with an advantage of 34 over
Edward Boynton, Esq., who received
69 votes They were both Edmunds
Republicans.
The regular Republicans in Frank
lin county have elected two senators,
Marsh and Draper, but W. H. Gid
dings, Rep., is defeated by J. G.
Powell, Dem., for senator by nearly
400 plurality. Stevens (bolter's can
didate) of St. Albans falls 500 short
of an election. Sturtevantof Swanton,
Rep. candidate for state's attorney, is
defeated by Hallihan of Highgate,
Dem. by 300 plurality. Kennedy,
Dem. nominee for sheriff, is re-elected
over Stratton, Rep. by 400 plurality.

Hiram Atkins was present at the
polls all day superintending the Dem
ocrats and the opposition to Edmunds.
Two well known Democrats in town
were seen and known to be in the town
hall peddling votes for the anti-Edmunds
Republican candidate. Mr.
Atkins was loud in his boasts that he
would defeat Edmunds, and during
most of the day stood over the ballot
box, keeping careful watch lest some
emissary of his should desert him for
a moment. His conduct, in some in
stances, was characteristic of his bull
dozing tendencies. In more than one
instance he was seen to snatch the
ballot from the hand of the voter
whom he recognized as a servile
supporter in past elections and dictate
a change of vote or administer a sharp
rebuke for having dared to come for
ward with a Republican vote. Spring
field Republican.
POLITICAL.
The Connecticut Republicans have
nominated P. C. Lounsbury for Gov
ernor, James L. Howard for Lieuten
ant Governor, L. M. Hubbard for
Secretary of State, Alexander Warner
for Treasurer and Thomas Clark for
Comptroller.
The contest for the Tennessee Gov
ernorship between the Taylor brothers
recalls a fight for the United States
senatorship among the Saulsbury
brothers in Delaware years ago. Gove
and Willard had fought each other in
the primaries, and the contest result
ed in a tie. Then Eli, who wasthe
least able of the three, and who had
not been thought of for the place,
quietly went to work and surprised
both his brothers by having himself
elected. He has held on ever since.

At the Massachusetts Prohibition
State convention last week T. J. Lath
rop of Taunton received an almost
unanimous vote for Governor. Dr.
John Blackmer was nominated for
Lieutenant-Governor. The State tick

tary of State, Geo. Kempton of Shar
on ; Treasurer and Receiver-General,
John L. Kilburn of Lee; Attorney
General, Samuel M. Fairchild of Mai
den ; Auditor, Wm. W. Sherman of
Lowell.
The Republicans of Wisconsin have
given their answer to those who criti
cised Gov. Rusk for doing his dutv
and supDressing anarchy. The largest
convention in the history of the State
met last week and renominated him
by acclamation. There wasn't a dis
senting voice in the assembly, but
every delegate present, echoing the
sentiments of his constituents, enthu
siastically supported the man who
dared to do what was right. Anarchy
isn't popular in Wisconsin, and the
Governor will no doubt be re-elected
by a handsome majority, notwith
standing Democratic attacks upon him.
The balance of the ticket is : Lieuten
ant Governor, George W. Ryland ;
Sec'y of State, E. G. Timme ; Treas
urer, Henry Harshaw; Insurance

The Retirement op a Railroad
President. Emmons Raymond, for
sixteen years President of the Pas
sumpsic River Railroad, has resigned
his Dosition. For nearly thirty years
he has been connected with this road,
and his associates in the management
of the road will cheerfully bear testi
mony to the fact that the success of
the road has been largely brought
about by his Indefatigable services
If he had owned every dollar of the
stock he could not have labored with
greater zeal or have been more mind
ful of its interests. There is no de
partment of the corporation with
whicti he is not iamiliar, and there is
not a mile of the road that he has not
personally inspected, traveling on foot
to look after its condition. Mr. Ray
mond will on the 23d inst., complete
his eightieth birthday. Age has not
impaired his intellect or stiffened a
joint in his frame. No man in New
England has done more hard work
than he, and vet he enters now upon
a new field of enterprise with all the
courage and push of a young man. It
is well known that Mr. Raymond
with his son has recently erected at
South Pasadena, Los Angeles County,
California, the finest hotel on the Pa
cific coast, which will be opened this
fall. His investment of several nun
dred thousand dollars in this enter
prise will require his attention, and
for this reason he retires from the
presidency of the Passu mpsic Road,
lie leaves the road in good hands,
and the stockholders have not a shad
ow of doubt that the success which
he has achieved in New England by
his clear-sighted views and indomita
ble enerzv will meet with a rich re
ward in a new field. Boston Journal

THE VERMONT ELECTION.
Complete Returns Republican
Majority Over All, 13,342-
The aggregate Gubernatorial vote
cast is 56,479, of which Ormsbee
(Rep.) receives 37,681 ; Shurtleff
(Dem.), 17,091 ; Seeley (Pro.), 1532 ;
Greenback and scattering, 275. Re
publican majority 18,342 ; Republican
plurality 20,590. The Prohibition
vote was drawn mostly from the Re

Democratic vote this year exceeds
that of 1883 by 2525, the Prohibition
vote of this year being equivalent to
the Greenback vote in 1882 less four
votes only. The difference in gain
made by the Democrats and Republi
cans this year is 685. Add this to
the difference between the scattering
vote of 1882 and that of this year,
267, and we have 952, which repre
sents very nearly the difference be
tween the Republican majority this
year and in 1882.
One hundred and ten towns, com
prising the First Congressional Dis
trict, give Stewart (Rep.), 16,050 ;
Brigham (Dem.), 5751 ; scattering,
240; Stewart's plurality, 10,299;
majority, 10,059.
One hundred and thirty -one towns,
comprising the Second Congressional
District, Grout (Rep.), 18,904; Fol

Grout's majority, 11,019; plurality,
11,083.
The Representatives elected are
divided politically as follows : Ed
munds Republicans, 255 ; anti-Edmunds
Republicans, 6 ; straight
Republicans, 45 ; Prohibition Repub
licans, 2 ; straight Democrats, 27 ;
Edmunds Democrats, 4; total, 239.
In two towns, Sheffield and Granville,
no Representatives were elected.
Anti-Edmunds Republicans represent
the towns of Bethel, Milton, Rich
ford, Middlesex, Bakersfield and St.
Albans. Edmunds Democrats repre
sent Burlington, South Burlington,
Peru and Brookline. Washington
and Chelsea send Prohibitionists.
The following 17 towns, represented
by Democrats from 1884 to 1886, are
this year represented by Republicans :
Bradford, Braintree, Fairlee, Orange,
Vershire, Holland, Pawlet, Berlin,
Plainfield, Brattleboro, Stratton,
Whitingham, Eden, Bakersfield, Un
derbill, Readsboro, Sunderland.
The following eleven towns, repre
sented by Republicans from 1884 to
1886, are this year represented by
Democrats : Troy, Wells, Fayston,
Marshfield, Brookline, Isle La Motte,
Bolton, Wheelock, Dorset, Peru,
Sandgate.
Three counties Windsor, Addison
and Lamoille are represented exclu
sively bv Republicans. It may be
added that the Democrats though
casting a larger vote than usual for an
off year, have lost in the General As
sembly ; also that the school question
has been a prominent issue in some
sections, and probably some Repre
sentatives will go to Montpelier
pledged against legislation in favor of
the town system of schools.
Letter from Kansas.
Clay Center, Kan., j
Sept., 7, 1836. j
Messrs. Editors:
As it has been some time since I
have written you how we are prosper
l n nr inlTnnana T -rtl fnlce time now
and try and inform your readers. It
has been an unusually hot and dry
summer here. Wehave had no rain
aside from . a little sprinkle for six
weeks and the grass is drying up and
corn stalks are nearly all dead and
brown, and the ground is almost as
hard as pavement, but for all that, we
are going to have a fair crop of corn.
Probably more than half an average
crop. Oats were good and potatoes
are very plentiful and cheap, apples
are a very good crop and have been
retailing on our streets for eighty
cents per bushel for weeks past. The
days of the festive melon are nearly
numbered, though occasionally a good
sized load comes in to the city, drawn
by a pair of big long-eared mules,
and retailed out on the street by the
owner, for a nickel each, melons as
large as a good sized tin bucket.
Grapes were quite plenty and sold
for 40 cts. per basket of ten pound
each. Peaches were a failure as they
usually are here, peas were raised in
moderate quantities.
The city is now draped from end to
end in mourning for our Mayor, Mr.
W. W. Walton who was killed in a
railroad accident yesterday a short
distance south of Milford station.
We are to have a big time here on
the 28, 29 and 30th of Sept. It is
the annual reunion of the old soldiers
of the Fifth Congressional District in
Kansas, and we expect there will be
the largest crowd here on those days,
Cloy Centre has ever had. It would
surprise some of the old settlers in
your county to come out here and see
the number of new blocks and private
residences that are being built here in
Clay. Probably from one to two hun
dred buildings have been built and are
being built here now since Jan. 1st,
and a city of only about 6,000 people.
They are building an Opera House
now that is going to be one of the
finest buildings in the state. It is to

Lamoill3 County Sunday School
Association.
The Sunday School workers of La
moille County met in annual convention
at the Congregational church, Stowe,
Vt., Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 8th
and 9th. It was the ninth regular session
and the schools of the county were well
represented by their pastors and dele
gates appointed by the schools. AH
Evangelical schools in the county are
invited to unite in this convention to
furnish statistics of their membership
and growth, and to contribute to the
discussion of questions of importance.
The session was opened at K).:iO a. m.
Wednesday by devotional services of a
half hour, led by Rev. W. E. Dousrlass of
Stowe. Following this, llev. W. L. An
derson, pastor ot the church in which
the services were held, gave an address
of welcome, greeting the people in the
name of the convention, and especially
of the church which had invited them,
and which hoped to protit by their at
tendance, uusiness was taken up and
in the absence of the President and Sec
retary. Kev. W. Li. Anderson was elected
chairman and Rev. E. J. Ward secretary
pro tam. Adjourned with benediction
by Kev. S. 11. Tucker .
The afternoon session was opened bv
service of song conducted bv Prof. A.
II. Cheney, followed bv praver service
led by Rev. W. L. Anderson. At two
o'clock the discussion of topics of im
portance connected with tne wont rep
resented was taken up? Rev. E. J.
Ward led in diseussinsr "The Mutual
Relations of the Church and Sunday
School." The Sunday-school had its
birth as an institution for teaching gen
eral subjects. A century ago the church
adopted it for instruction in religious
topics, therefore it is the child ot the
church,and as a parent the church has a
right to say what shall be taught and
what books furnished by it. He was
followed by Rev. T. Crudgington, who
thought no distinction ought to be
made between the relations of the
Church to the Sunday. School and
other equally iaijj.t departments
of the work ; by ?Lrr P. Tucker,
who agreed with the-relationship es
tablished by the first speaker, and argued
that, as parent, the church ought to
say how the Bible is taught, not only as
a classic but a Diviue record, and also
what hymns shall be sung; and by Rev.
W. A. Bushee, who inquired very perti
nently why some one did not ask for the
relations between the church and public
services or prayer meetings.
The next subject discussed was "The
Relations of the Teacher to his Class,"
opened by Kev. Mr. Douglass. The speak
er argued that he ought to be a guide in
things moral and spiritual, if possible
with a religious experience and taking a
deep interest in temporal and spiritual
welfare. He was followed by Revs. W.
A. Bushee, E. J. Ward, L. P. Tuck
er, and Bros. Hopkins and McAllister,
all of whom enlarged upon some ideas
expressed by the regular speaker.
A model teacher's exercise was then
conducted by L. M. Fullington upon the
plan of teachers' meetings as held in
Johnson. It was a very interesting and
suggestive exposition of the lesson for
Sept. 12, from John xvi: 5-20. The
question drawer in the hands of Rev. W.
A. Bushee, proved of profit in bringing
before the assembly topics of vital
interest.
The evening's prayer service was led
bv Kev. W. A. Bushee and brought out
much rare experience. Rev. L- II. Elliot
agent of the Vermont Bible Society,;
represented his work among the Sunday
Schools in securing funds for diiftribuf-
houses. Kev. J. 11. Babbitt of SwHht6n','
secretary or tne &unaay bcnooi woicin
the state, delivered an able and compre
hensive address upon the subject "The
Sunday School as a Centre of Mod
ern Thought." It is represented by the
800,000 workers in this country-; by the
14,000,000 in its ranks throughout the
world ; in its increasing literature and
dignity gained by piominent workers.
The address deserves publication. A
vote of thanks was given the speaker.
After the address the following com'
mittees were appointed by the chair
man : On resolutions. Kev. Ii. r
Tucker, Johnson; A, M. Kelley, Elmore ;
and Kev. T. Crudgington, Johnson. On

business meeting ofriie association was
next in order. The nresident pro tern.
Kev. Mr. Anderson, occupied the chair.
and the secretary, Prof. A. II. Camp
bell, being absent, Rev. L. P. Tucker
performed the duties of that office. The

reported resolutions of sympathy with
Kev. Edwin Wheelock in the severe ill
ness of his wife.
The committee on resolutions sub
mitted a report which was approved,
and motion carried that it he published
in the county paper and that copies be
iurnisneu oy me secretary to each su
perintendent in the county, with request
that it be read before the schools.
t ollowing are the resolutions :
Whereas. The peril of the church mid nation
demands men and women of principle and intes
rnv. ami
AVhkreas. We believe that the nrnctiee nf the
prineiples taupht by the christian church from
the Vord of Goil will adjust the unfriendliness
oeiween ine employer ami employed, eradicate
intemperance, socialism, polyiraniv anil kindred
evils, and that as character attains a final per
manency we perceive the importance of the
Sunday School in inculcating those principles
early in life that those "those who are
planted in the House of the Lord may flourish iii
the courts of our God"; Therefore,
Jiriwl veil. That we recommend that more im
portance be fciven in the Sunday School to the
teaching of the Holy Scriptures not onlv as a
classic but as a Divinely inspired record, that
care be taken in the selection of library books
and in the songs of Zion so that we may worship
in spirit and with the undersmndini;.
ltmolreil. That so far as practicable the teach
ers be men and women after God's own heart,
'knowing whom tliev have believed" ami
whereof they allirm, studying the natures of their
pupils and not only teaching, but showing a
Godly interest in their spiritual and temporal
welfare.
Hemlrcil, That we recommend that each Pas
tor present at least one sermon each year on the
importance and needs of Sunday School work.
Jtiwilrnt, That we recommend, further, the
more faithful observance of teachers' meetings
especially as promoters of more spirituality and
Christian zeal on the part of those engaged as
teachers.
Iii sii!cel, That the best thanks of this conven
tion be given to the enti'i'iahJlhg friends of
Stowe for their generous and coiviirij hospitali
ties extended by ilfeni to iTio (WrSaT" attending,
both at their Homes and at me ehureh.
For delegates to the State Sunday
School Convention to be held at Chester
the latter part of next month C. S. Par
ker of Elmore, C. P. Jones of Johnson,
L. II. Lewis and wife of Hyde l'ark and
Mrs. A. A. Kiles of Morristown, were
elected, with the privilege of choosing
alternates.
Keports of the Sunday Schools in the
County were piesented by the township
committees. All the schools that re
ported showed an increasing interest in
the work, and m most cases in attend
ance.
The regular work of the convention
was then taken up, and Kev. Mr. Ander
son gave an essay upon "i.he Sunday
School Library." He deplored the su
perficial work now performed by that
institution and thought the times de
mand some Moses who shall lead out of
its land to one llowinu with milk and
honey. An ideal library he would have
consist of works of science, biography,
history, religious experience, with com
mentaries and juvenile works.
Kev. A. A. Smith enforced the neces
sity for a library which shall train in
Sunday reading the mind away from
worldliness to a spirituality which ren
ders the diiy of God sacred.
The afternoon session was opened at
1:30 o'clock with praise service con
ducted by Kev. S. II. Tucker of Stowe.
At 2 o'clock the President, L. II. Lewis,
took the chair and the question drawer
was passed. The discussion of the sub
jects assigned upon the programme was
made the order of the afternoon. " The
Teachers Preparation for tho Lesson "
was discussed by Bio. C. P. Jones and
Kev. L. P. Tucker of Johnson. The
former advocated a broad use of lesson
helps and careful study of the Bible as
its own commentary. The latter de
fined the office of teaching as a profes
sion. It is expected that the pntfes
sional man shall have mastered his
profession in its details. So the teacher
cannot presume to teach what he lias
not mastered. Let him know Bible
geography and history and, as it ia ex
pected of the preacher that his life shall
be the incarnation of the principles
which he teaches, so the teacher ought
to incorporate spiritual truths.
The next regular subject was " The
Sunday School and Temperance" and
was discussed by Dea. James Holmes
and Kev. W. E. Douglass. Both spoke
upon the importance of temperance be
ing taught as an injunction of Divine
Word and impressed early in life.
Kev. T. Crudgington represented the
last subject assigned up.m the pro
gramme, " The Minister and the Sun
day School." The preacher is as much
pastor of the Sunday School as of the
prayer meeting and so far as possible
ought to be in attendance as an active
participant in its services.
The funds now in the hands of the
executive committee for supplying weak
schools with lesson helps were left to
the discretion of the committee for aid
ing in any way needy schools. The execu
tive committee were authorized by vote
to send cards to each school prior to an
nual meeting for collecting school sta
tistics, and decided that the township
committee lie responsible for the proper
return ot these inquiries. After sing
ing, the convention adjournod sin? die
with benediction by Kev. T. Crudging

awaited the result which promised to
be death for all in the carriaze.
Those familiar with the locality con
