Thursday, April tO, 1890. Rhode Island's election laws need revamping. They may have been well enough a century or two ago, but in these days they are too antique. The Old Vermont Brigade and all old veterans generally rejoice in the appointment of the heroic soldier Gen. L. A. Grant, as Assistant Secre tary of War. E. G. Allis late of the Ludlow Tri bune, has bought the Bellows Falls Times, and assumes control at once. Mr. Allis is a worker, and under his management the excellent reputation of the Times will be ably sustained. According to the New York Clipper, Ludlow is to receive a visit from a circus at an early date, during the summer. Ludlow Tribune. Now will Bro. Crane please give us the latest from the Police News? Secretary Noble's Easter Sunday banquet, or "breakfast" as it is called in fashionable parlance, is hardly in keeping with the religious sentiment of this country, and it is not strange that the event has created consider able agitation throughout the land. " Nationalism " has started out as a distinct party in politics in Rhode Island: and will doubtless do the same in other States before long. "What a field for office-holders, when the nation comes to take care of us all dav and put us in our little beds at night ! The first number of the New Eng land City Record ot N. E. City, Georgia, lies before ns. It is got up in the interest of booming real es tate in that place. We notice that the genial F. W. Styles of the Spring field (Vt.), Reporter is business man ager, and that the "sworn circula tion" of that number is 15,000. It looks as if Bro. Styles had the South ern fever pretty bad. Chauncey M. Depew has been visit-J ing the South. He returns with glowing accounts of the wonderful resources, and speaks highly of its brilliant future. He says he found two classes of men there, one whose heads were filled with ideas of aris tocracy, and the other class busy about phosphates, iron mines and cotton mills. The latter class repre sent the " New South," and favor the Republican idea of protection to home industries. He says it is the growing class, and that it will in time dominate the South as it places it alongside the North in progress and industries. As the old aristo cratic South disappears, the Demo cratic fallacies that it supported will go with it. He is very bitter in de nunciation of the convict labor or "farming out" system in vogue there, the horrors of which he declares are equal to anything in Siberia. The Senate pension bill granting pensions to soldiers and sailors in capacitated for labor, and providing for pensions to matrons, is now be fore the House. It provides for a pension of 8 per month to Union veterans &2 years old, who served i)0 Iays, and to disabled veterans under 62 years of age. The bill also pro vides for pensions to the widows of soldiers who have reached the age of 62, and to all soldiers' widows depen dent on their labor for support. The committee's report says : The bill will place upon the pension rolls nearly 300,000 old and disabled veterans, about 80,000 widows, and will in crease the pensions of nearly 00,000 soldiers now receiving less than $8 per month. The estimated cost is $30, 625.316 for the first fiscal year 1800 to '91 ; and there would be a probable increase in the cost for five vears of from $3,000,000 to $ 5,000,000 per .year. Pensions have recently been granted the following Vermonters: original, Chas.AV. Garrow, Rutland; Horace B. Dortge, Northfield (deceased); Chester K.

Henry Powers, of Morris ville, now judge of our supreme court, has been mentioned by many ns the probable successor of Gov. Stewart. We do believe that if there is one per son in this state who is eminently fitted to represent Vermont in Con gress, that person is Judge Powers. He commenced his business career af ter receiving a liberal education and pursued until elected to the supreme liench a successful pract ice of the la w. He served with brilliant success for some years as member of our state legislature,, a part of the time as speaker of the house of representa tives. He was also a member of the last council of censors, and also took an active part in the last constitu tional convention held in 1870. We sat with him as a member at that time, and as the business of the con vention was done principally in a committee of the whole, Judge Powers was really its chairman during its entire session. His past legislative experience gives him excellent qualifi cations for the position of congress man, while his experience as a judge should be of the first importance in the making of the nation's laws. His personal presence carries conviction of the strength of the man. Logical as a reasoner, he is also a ready de bater, with an oratorical voice and manner which never fails to hold the attention of a public body. With these qualifications which we know him to possess we believe that Judge Powers would be the peer of any man in Congress. He is industrious and if elected to Congress at our next congressional election it is our opin ion that the star of Vermont influ ence in that bodv would commence to ascend rather than decline. From the Barre Enterprise. - There can be but little doubt that Hon. Henry Powers will be nomi natd to succeed Uov. Stewart in Congress for the first district. He stands head and shoulders above any man yet named against him in this district m point of abuity. An ex change well says of him : The retirement of Gov. Stewart as a candi date for further Congressional honors leaves the held practically clear for lon. lienry Powers, of Morrisville, who will be a candi date for the succession. The candidacy of Judge Powers will be hailed with much satis faction by the Republican voters of the first district and his nomination as Gov. Stewart's successor seems pretty well assured. Judge Powers is at present Third Assistant Judge of the State Supreme Court, having been elected to the bench in 1874, and served con tinuously since as a member of the court. He was born in Morrisville in 1835, and gradu ated from the University of Vermont, class of oo. lie lias tilled various local and state office, and in 1874 wasspeaker of the House." Judge Powers is a man of rare mental attain ments and a fine speaker- If chosen to repre sent the first district he will make his mark in Congress. THE GOVERNOR QUESTION. From the St. Johnsbury Republican. Though the Stateconventionis sev eral months ahead, the Governor question is in active debate, not merely in the newspapers (which were two or three months ahead of the public in this matter) but among the people. Here in Caledonia county the drift of opinion is unmistakably and em phatically in favor of Mr. Page, and Essex county is almost a" unit for him. If the choice depended on these two counties and the election were held to-day, Mr. Page would have an overwhelming majority. If the sentiment of Caledonia and Essex counties is indicative of that of the whole State and we know of no reason why Mr. Page should be stronger or Col. Woodbury weaker here than in other parts of "Vermont Mr. Pajre has a lone: lead of his competitor. From the Brattleboro Reformer. The people are sometime scoinir I c;iH a. halt in the extrnviiguiice tliat is running riot in State expenses. In the four years from 1886 to 1890 the state expenses amounted to $1, 551,214; this is over$500,000great er than the expenditures from 1882 to 1886 and exceeds by $123,000 the disbursements for the four years preceding the enactment of the cor poration tax law covering the years 1878 to 1882. The expenses of the reform school, the house of correc tion and the state prison were $251, 529 more than the receipts from 1880 to 1890, The balance of court ex penses against the State has de creased very considerably since the stopping of the stealinp: of fines-and costs collected. But this only makes it more inexcusable that expenses should have been so enormously in creased in other directions so - that they are now from $2 to f 3 a year heavier for every family in the state than they were five years ago. The corporation tax law was of itself a measure of wisdom and justice. But the tendency as things are now run ning, is to deprive the state of the benefit, by 6imply clearing away the avails of it. From the Montpelier Watchman. The Free Press is sending to the postmasters of the State a circular which seems to indicate, as a corres pondent putsit, "a design to monopo lize the whole newspaper field for Mr. Woodbury and to use this opportu nity to get a foothold all through the State." The following is the essen tisd part of the circular : 'We wish the Free Press to have read ers in every town in the State. To help accomplish this purpose we intend to send out a large number of sample copies during the next few months. To do this suc cessfully we must have a list of good names at every postoffice in Vermont. If you will send us the names of from twenty-five to sixty persons, according to the size of your office, to whom you think it would be advan tageous for us to send a few sample copies, we will take pleasure in forwarding the W eek ly Free Press one year free to any address you name." So the puny colossus of the com bine is stretching its brazen legs to bestride the State, crush out the lo cal papers and force Colonel Wood bury upon the people of Vermont. Of this gift enterprise the Woodstock Standard pertinently remarks: "Our enterprising contemporary is rich and can afford this perhaps, whether to help the selectmen to pure liquors or to accomplish other purposes, but the terms seem to be rather hard for the struggling country newspaper to compete with. "Our enterprising contemporary is rich" sudden richness seems to have befallen the organ of the combine. From the Barton Monitor. The Windsor Journal, the only pa per of any particular political lnflu ence in Eastern Vermont, which sup ports Lieut.-Gov. Woodbury for the Governorship, is edited by Alarsn u. I'erkms.who aspires to be lieutenant Governor on the Woodbury ticket The fact that Bro. Perkins has hitched in with Col. Woodbury will account for his position in tins con test. His enthusiasm for Col. Wood bury is doubtless begotten of some personal aspirations. The papers are naming a score ot persons on the east side of the State who are eligible to the Lieutenant-Governorship,some of whom are Mai. Grout of Derby, ti. C Bates, T. C.

We wish to enter our protest to certain statements in regard to Mr. Page, which have been scattered over the State by .emissaries of the Wood bury ring, but which, so far, no. paper hasseen tittopublish. This "straight forward " course of Mr. Woodbury's friends stands out in bold contrast to that pursued by the opposition. Some time ago the question was asked whether liquor was sold at Mr. Woodbury's hotels in Burlington, and whether he profited by the illegal traffic. Upon the denial of this, in the Free Press, the leading papers of the State friendly to Mr. Page, made note of the denial and accepted the matter asfinal.notwithstanding that many individuals asserted positively that liquor had been furnished to the guests of the hotel, both in their rooms and in the dining room. This is in accordance with our idea of con ducting the canvass, in a ".candid, straiglittorward way." We do not believe in earryinjr it on in an under handed manner, and if there is any- l i-. 1 i rr , - iiiuig io ue sum anecijng tne charac ter or record of either Mr. Page or Col. Woodbury it should be said openly, to admit of a reply that may ue equuiiy puunc, anu to give the people an opportunity to know the whole truth of the matter. From the Bellows Falli Times. The Burlington FreePress announ ces a grand sample copy campaign all in the interests of its circulation. to Vermonters at large. Their circu lar, of which we have a copy, neglects to connect this stroke of enterprise with a systematic Woodbury boom, which is doubtless ""an oversight on the part of the management of the "ablest edited journal in Vermont." Ordinarily, newspapers do not start , in on a circulation boom at this sea son of the year, but the Fiee Press has of course substantial reasons for being a noteworthy exception to this rule. From the Essex Herald. The Newport Express savs that so far as heard from "there are 21 State papers in favor of Page, or against the promotion idea to 11 that favor Woodbury." Well, ye think the proportion will be aloHt the same when the rest of the edito rial fraternity have fallen off the fence. After all, the papers are only an index of what the publishers sup pose to lie the drift of public opinion. The real test will be in the primaries Mrs Mass. Geo. Brill has hired the Lester Boomhower place. J. C. Blake started for Worcester, Mass.' on Monday. B. B. Blake has received the appointment of deputy sheriff. Buck Smith are superintending the log drive destined tor Cambridge. Will " Atwell has returned from Albany, N. Y., where he has been attending business college. Erdine O'Brien has completed a quilt which contains 9,936 pieces, and asks " Who beats?" Israel D'Zotelle has hired the "Gillen place" of Mrs. B. W. Fuller, and taken possession of tne same. There has been a large addition to the pop ulation at fc.den Mills lately, and a wheel wright shop has been opened in consequence with G. Miller as proprietor.

Contemp lated from this distance it is awf ul-to the beholder, terrible beyond conception. Uut the disaster or rather the multitude of disasters, covered a large territory, and seems the greater because so wide spread. When considered with a view only to the destruction of property, such a catastrophe can not be more terrible to the individual than when fire like a thief in the night, comes and takes away homes from our Vermont hillsides. Especially is this true if it happens without a policy in a reliable Insurance Company. In either case the home isgone-the blow tremendous.
