MORRIS VI L1E and HYDE PARK. Thursday, September 4-, 1890. Did They Do Kight? It was generally supposed that the contest between the friends of Col. Woodbury and Mr. Page closed June 19, when Mr. Page revived the nom ination for Governor. But in this it seems that so far as Morristown and Eden are concerned tha supposition was erroneous. Not one iota of its intensity was allowed to abate. It was carried into the appointment of delegates to the county convention by these t owns, and they have pushed the fight vigorously ever since, and while Mr. Page has been bestowing his lest efforts since thestate conven tion in investigating the needs of the state sofar as they relate to the sev eral state institutions, all except one of which he has visited since the con vention, these elements of discord have been at work. Of course they are entirely harmless so far as Mr. Tage is personally concerned, but the Republican party in thestate and na tion have reason to complain. These over-zealous friends of Col. "Woodbury were not content with cutting Mr. Tage, but they voted the Democratic ticket straight so far as Governor was concerned. As a result the net Republican loss as compared with 18S0 in these two towns is 298, or considerably more than 30 per cent of the entire Republican majority for Ormsbee in 1886. As a matter of course, this influence, vigorous as it was on the part of these two towns, made itself felt in the other towns in this county to the extent of an aver age of 13 to 20 votes per town. Col. Woodbury may well beg to be deliv ered from the bauds of his indiscreet friends. The Tin Plate Scare. It probably isn't reasonable to ex pect that the importers, whose busi ness it is to bring foreign goods to this cpuntry to sell, should think any more of the McKinley tariff bill than do the foreign manufacturers who want to have a free market for their foreign made goods in the United States. Both classes of course are Free Traders, and both vigorously Oppose the McKinley bill because that bill is in favor of having American la bor right here at home, make the goods which the Americans use in stead of depending upon a foreign nation for the supply. The importers are quick to see that all this would take their occupation away orlargely cut into their profits, and they are fighting it with all their might. Thousands of circulars, filled with specious lree trade statements, have been sent out through the country broadcast, and an attempt is madeto create a scare about the increased price of tin plate. The increased cost, even admitting the statements of the importers to be true, is small at the most, and would be much more than offset by the benefits which would come to the people from the large amount of labor and capital that hoc m.t m wortt-ra tftBWKmt ryf- but which now all goes to benefit the people of foreign countries. But this talk of increased cost is only a bugbear used by these import ers for their own selfish ends. Every one who has given the matter any thought knows that home manufac ture diminishes the cost of manufac tured articles to the consumer, and they know that the ultimate if not immediate effect of the passage of the' McKinley bill on the price of tin plates would Ik? to break the power of the foreign combine- which arbi trarily savs how much must len;ul for the article and to reduce instead of to increase the price. That was the effect in the case of steel rails, wire nails, pottery, plate glass and scores of other articles. For the ben efit of any timid ones who have been frightened by the cry of higher prices in the case of tin plate we print the following which shows the effect of protection upon the cost of wire nails. The article is from the Cleve land Leader and its statements are strictly accurate : " Prior to 1883 wire nails were not protected a nd the foreigners sold them to us at $ 6 a keg. Not a pound of them was made in this country. In 1883 Congress imposed a duty of two cents, and two and a half cents and four cents a pound on wire nails, ac cording to size. The duty on the kmd selling for $6 a keg was ?2. The free traders opposed this, as they now do the proposed increase in the duty on tin plates, on the ground that the 2 would be added to the price, making $ 8 a keg. In 183, 50,000 kegs of wire nails were produced in this country; in 1884,75,000; in 1885, 200,000; in 188(5, 500,000; in 1887, 700,000; in 1888, 2,000,000; in 1889, 2,500, 000; and the output this year will be 3,000,000 kegs. Here is a total of over 9,000.000 kegs of wire nails produced where not one was produced before, as the result of protection. According to the free trade predic tions these nails must have cost $ 8 a keg or $72,000,000 in all, of which $ 18,000,000 would be "tax." Now what did they cost? The average price of wire nails was $6 a keg in 1883, f 5 in 1884, $ 4 in 1883, $ 3.50 in 1886, $2.97 in 1887, $2.45 in 1888, and $2.40 inl889 and 1890. The 9,000,000 kegs were sold for $23,000,000, including the unsold product of this year. At $6 a keg, the price before the tariff was made protective in 1883, these nails would nave cost the American people at wholesale over $54,000,000. The former price of wire nails was $6 a keg. The protective tariff is $2 a keg. The present selling price is $2.40 a keg. Now will some free trader please tell us if the tariff on wire nails is a tax, and if so to what extent?" In the past t wenty years the United States have paid to England for tin plate nearly two hundred millions of dollars.-', Under the McKinley plan, which is the Republican and Protec tive plan, that sum instead of being sent over the water to support Eng lish capital and English labor to the detriment of American labor, will be paid out right here in our own coun try. And not only that benefit will be derived by our people under tins plan, but as in the case of wire nails, noted above the cost to the consumer will be reduced so that goods made from tin plate, can be bought for less money than ever before. THE ELECTION. Calf Skins to the Front. C. S. Pace's Majority ia tie State From 12,000 to 15,000. Returns from various parts of the state come in very slowly. A light vote has been cast and the ustial off year majority is the result. The Free Press says " Republican apathy and a Democratic still hunt seem to have resulted in a reduced majority for the Republican candidate for Governor yesterday, and the election of Demo cratic Representatives from a number of towns heretofore strongly Repub lican. The story of the day in a nut shell, is that t"he Democrats got out almost a full vote, while the Republi cans staid at home in large numbers. Returns come in very6lovly, and it is impossible to form an estimate ap proximately correct at this time as to the result, but the indications are that Mr. Page's majority for Gov ernor will be over 17,000. The Democrats succeeded by omit tiug the nomination of candidates for Representatives in a number of leading towns in throwing Republi cans off their guard and reduced ma jorities result." Burlington gives Page a net Repub lican gain of 66 over 1886, Randolph a gain of 142, Page having in the lat ter town a majority of 313 as com pared with 191 for Ormsbee in 1886. All honor t o St. Albans for her ex cellent vote and her loyalty to the Republican ticket! The Messenger says : " The total vote cast for gov ernor t wo years ago was 1,226, when Gov. Dillingham's majority was 444. This year the aggregate vote for gov ernor is 1,038, with a majority for Mr. Page of 426, only eighteen less. The Republicans of the town may congratulate themselves on having done a pretty good day's work for an "off year." The best information we cau give at the present time is the following: The Latest Returns. White River Junction, Vt., Sept. 2. One hundred and thirty-five towns give Tage, Rep., 22,343; Brigham, Dem., 13,262; Allen, Pro., 829; scat tering, all for Lieut.-Gov. Woodbury, 29. The same towns in 1888 gave Dillingham, Rep., 32,236; Shurtleff, Dem., 12,821; all others 947. In these towns the Republican vote has fallen off 9896 and the Democratic vote has gained 441, while the prohi bition has fallen off but little. If the vote of the remaining towns is rela tively the same as those heaad from the Republican majority will be about 15,000 in the whole state. Only 18 Democrats in the general assembly of 1888; thirty-seven are elected in the 135 towns already heard from. Two farmers league candidates are elect ed. An unexpectedly large number of Representatives who favor high li. cense are elected. Rutland elected a Democratic Rep resentative at 2 o'clock this morning over P. C.

Charles Burnham, Newport, was kicked by a horse and had three ribs broken and the lung tissue badly in jured. It is stated that the Hon. Frederick Billings of Woodstock is constantly failing, and probably will not survive many months. Geo. F. Breed, manager of the Co rona marble works at Brandon, was instantly killed by beingthrovvn from a carriage Thursday. Widow Melissa Towslee, who was the oldest inhabitant of Bennington, is dead. No other resident there has reached the age of 90. Charles Spaulding of Bridgewater, acting express agent at Weirs, N. II., was badly hurt by a mail hook on a moving train, and may die. Mary Howe of Brattleborois under an engagement with.a leading mana ger to sing in concert music, and is to appear in all the leading cities of the country. News has been received by friends in Brattleboro of the shooting of Charles Perhani, now the only remaining one of four brothers who went from Brat tleboro to Colorado in 1885. The Vermont Mutual fire insurance company's losses from August 1, 1889 to the corresponding date this year were 436, aggregating $139, 623.96. An assessment of 4 cents is levied upon policy holders. Commodore Thomas Chubb, ex harbor master at Galveston, Texas, died suddenly Tuesday morning of last week of heart disease at his sum mer residence in Post Mills, Vt. He was 84 years old and widely known in naval circles. During the rebellion he was attached to the confederate naval service in the capacity above stated The post-office at Castleton was en tered Monday night of last week. No stamps, cards or envelopes were tak en. Hie burglars got ataout $4 in change. 1 he store ot Preston Bros. was also robbed of about $100 in sil verware and revolvers. There is no clew vet to the burglars. This is the second time the office has been robbed in ten years. State Auditor Powell does not sup port the claim so frequently made that the enforcement of the prohibi tory law carries with it a financial burden. On the other hand he says that the law "is a source of revenue to the state and not expense. When charged with every item of expense whether direct or incidental, properly chargeable to it, the law is producing a net revenue of from $2o,000 to $30,000 annually." Miss Louisa Smith of Plainfield, N. II., was arrested and delivered to Vermont officers Tuesdaj' for break ing and entering the depot at North Hartland, at midnight, August 12, abstracting several express packages and setting: fire to the building. She had ordered goods C. O. D. from Bos ton dealers under fictitious names, and had asked the express agent to deliver them to no one but her. Some of theoods were found at her father's house and others on her person when she was arrested. A two years old daughter of Isaac Tillser, of St. Albans, who with her mother was visiting Mrs. Tillser s sis ter in Burlington one day last week, met with a serious and singular acci dent. Mrs. Tillser was about to cross the street with her child, and meeting a neighbor stopped a moment when the child sat down on the ground At that moment a bantam rooster stepped up to the child and picked one of its eyes out, destroying the sight and otherwise disfiguring the child's face before it made any out cry. Burlington is excited over a case of grave robbing. The body of Nellie Liberty, who died August 18, is found to have been removed from St. Jos eph's cemetery. The death certificate made out by the physician gives no cause of death. There was a slight clue to the robbers and the matter was placed in the hands of the police, which resulted in warrants being is sued for the arrest of R.Dufrense, Dr. S. Patenaude and his hired man and a Mr. Snyder, all ot Winooski,for im plication in the grave robbing. Sny der and Dufrense were captured Wed nesday. The latter has been study ing in Dr. Patenaude's office, and it is probable that the body was taken for dissection by them. It is thought the body was thrown into the river and search will be made for it. Hints for School Committees. Supervisor Stone, of Orleans county, makes suggestions which ought to be heeded and acted upon by every one having to do with the management of our schools: "A wash-dish is as necessary at school as at home. Cur tains would give the interior of many school-rooms a more cheerful aspect. Pleasant surroundings make pleas ant children. The general condition of out-buildings renders the teaching of good manners and morals of no effect. Suitable out-buildings sepa rated by a tight board fence should be constructed in connection with every school-house not thus provided for." Suicide in Jail,. Charles Seymour of Manchester, who had been confined in the Bennington jail for several months, committed suicide Friday night by hanging. Seymour, while in a fit of insane madness some time ago, attempted to kill his wife and chilil with a knife. This morning when the body was discovered lite had probably leenextincfc for many hours. Seymour made use of a part of his bedding to hang himselt. Railroad Meeting. The annual meeting of the stockholders of the St. Johnsbury and LakeChamplain Rail road Company will be held at the St. Johnsbury House, St. Johnsbury, on Thursday, Sept. 11, to elect directors and'to rescind a former vote and au thorize the directors to issue $2,500, 000 four per cent bonds secured by a first mortgage. A Sensihle Preparation foh Markiage. They were talking the other day of the most sensible mar riage on record. When the would-be bridegroom put the question to papa that gentleman gazed a few seconds in vacancy, then he turned his eyes on the expectant lover and spoke as follows: "There is plenty of room in the house; come anil live with us for six months. At the expiration ot that time, if you wish to marry my daughter and she wishes to marry you, we will order the wedding break fast." The breakfast has been or dered and eaten; but if all engaged couples were put on that sort of pro bation there might be fewer mar riages, while very certainly the di vorce courts would lose half their business. Warren (Pa.) Mail. The Swedes. Bro. Crane of the Ludlow Tribune recently visited the Swedish colony at Weston, attended their church and looked over the community. Here is an extract from what he says about them : After brief interviews, the pastor, Mr. Forsberg, whose main support is gained by his work in the lumber mill, exhausted his knowledge of English in the polite invitation "Coomeen and tak a seet." Into a little bare room, furnished only by four or five wooden chairs and a small stand, we entered. On the stand lay a Swedish bible, a hymn book and a Life of Christ. The Swedes, with the exception of the in terpreter and another young man, seated themselves in the kitchen ad joining and the service began by a fa miliar hymn tune sung heartily, with male voices predominating, but the words were not so familiar. Follow ing this came a brief prayer by the pastor, the scripture reading and an extempore sermon. The sermon was probably interesting but we failed to catch its main points, doubtless this was owing to the language in which it was delivered but it is not infre quent that we experience the same difficulty when alleged sermons are preached in English. It is sure that the people were quiet, reverential and attentive. We venture to assert, that it would be impossible to draw together in Vermont, in any average back district an audience of contigu ous families of laboring people, who would not suffer by comparison with these foreigners, who are so unwel comed by certain classes of loud mouthed shriekers over the degrada tion of our American population by the importation of ihese people. At the close of the service the homes were visited. The farms, as a rule, are much better than we expected to see. The prices range at about $6.00 per acre including buildings. Most of the homes can easily and cheaply be made comfortable but are, for the most part, sadly in need of repair. Standing on one elevation, Commis sioner Valentine pointed out twenty contiguous farms, with buildings, that were without inhabitants, these farms having from 150 to 300 acres each. Good sugar orchards are on t hem all, and a very small proportion of the acreage is valueless. Much of it looks like arable land, that under proper care might return a handsome return for labor expended, lhis year but little in the line of agricul ture has been attempted. A few oats have been sown, a few potatoes planted and the hay has been housed. In the meanwhile the men are at tempting to gain a little start work ing in lumber mills. One lad, sixteen yea rs of age, with a bright and cleanly look, counts the lumber in one mill with great rapidity and accuracy and his foreman considers him a valuable acquisition. The main problems to settle are: Will they stay? and will they cultivate the farms? Any man who can satisfactorily answer these queries can solve the Swedish ques tion, for if they can be answered af firmatively there is no doubt as to the wisdom of getting them here. They will make a law-abiding, intel ligent and industrious people, who will develop into just such citizens as Vermont needs. The Census. Superintendent Porter has given out the population of the different States from time to time, but here is a collection and compilation of all the figures that he has, together with some comparative statement of the figures for 1880. From the table herewith it will le seen that the greatest gains are made on the part of the northern States : STATES. 1890 1880.

The revision o'f the census may slightly change some of these totals. The unanimous renomination of Congressman McKinley by the Re publicans of the sixteenth district of Ohio was not unexpected, but it is nevertheless a deserving tribute to his worth and work as a member of the house of representatives. How thoroughly Mr. McKinley is appre ciated by the other leading Republi cans is shown by the despatch sent to the convention by Mr. Blaine, saying " he has been true and t ried for twenty years." The Democratic legislature has outrageously gerrymandered the congressional districts of Ohio, mak ing as many of them as possible un questionably Democratic, and Mr. McKiuley's district is no exception, but he is strong among his constitu ents, who are too proud of his achieve ments in public life to wish for his re tirement. The author of the tariff bill will have an unusally hard fight, but it is hoped he will win. Census Bulletin, No. 9, just issued, gives the full returns of the produc tion of pig iron during the year end ing June 30, 1890. The report at this time is complimented by Super intendent Porter as showing "com mendable promptitude "something that hasn't been noticed in the work of all the. attaches of the census bu reau. The production during the year acgreffated 9,579,779 tons (of 2000 pounds to the ton), as compar ed with 3,781,021 tons produced dur ing the census year of 1880 and 2, 052,821 tons during the census year of 1 770. Chiefly notable is the great development of'the pig iron industry in the southern states, ia which there has been an increase from 350,436 tons to 1,780,909 tons. This is chiefly due to the great st'-ides of Ala bama and Virginia. The former, which, in 1880, occupied tenth place among the states, with an output of 62,336 tons, now ranks third with an output of 890,432 tons. Vir ginia, which was seventeenth in 1880 with an output of 17.9C6 tons, has leaped to sixth place with an output of 302.447. New York, while having slightly increased its output, has fall en from third to fifth place, having been passed by Alabama and Illinois.

JUST CONSIDER THIS, The following tableshows the surpris ingly large sums which savings of one, five, ten, twenty-five, fifty, and 100 cents per day, compounded semi-annually, at 4 per cent., will amount to in 5, 10, 20, and 50 years : 5 Yrs. 10 Yrs. 20 Yrs. 50 Yrs.

" Let us give you some facts. The Lamoille County Savings Bank and Trust Co. of Hyde Park is an institution run on the following principles : 1st. Not a dollar is loaned without the personal knowledge of some one of the Board of Directors that the loan is safe beyond question. 23. It is run as a horns tinsitution Every dollar is loaned in Lamoille and adjacent counties, and every worthy en terprise in the vicinity of the towns whence the deposits of the Bank come, is fostered and encouraged in preference to other investments, so far as it can be done with absolute safety. Sd. Under no circumstances is a dol lar invested in any western morgage or other out-of-the-State security. We might perhaps pay our depositors one half of one per cent, per annum more interest by incurring a little additonal risk, if no loss should come, but we believe there is to-day a "long felt want" in Vermont for a savings institu tion which will loan its funds at home. It is needed that Vermont may not become impoverished. It is needed for the building up and fostering home in stitutions. Vermont towns will not boom without money any more than towns beyond the Mississippi and in Alabama. It is needed for the greater safety of the savings of widows and or phans as well as of all those who look rather to the absolute security of the principal than to high rates of interest. With no disparagement to our neighbors who prefer to occupy western fields we offer to the depositing public the La moille County Savings Bank and Trust Co. as an institution organized to meet the demand for a strictly home investment Savings Bank. That such a demand ex ists, and that the people are ready to be stow their confidence, and encourage ment upon such an institution, is evi denced by the fact that the aggregate of the small deposits alone in this bank not counting any in excess of $1000 were at the end of the first six months of its business, 57,196.00, a record without parallel, we believe, in the history of Vermont Savings Banks. 4th. Under no circumstances does this Bank take over 6 per cent. It would not, knowingly, make an investment which would pay over 6 per cent. The safest class of loans and securities will command money at 6 per cent. The Bank pays the State a tax of six-tenths of 1 per cent, on deposits in lieu of all taxes to the depositors. It must then be evident that 4 per cent, per annum is all that the Bank can safely pay". This rate it will pay. It is guaranteed and rests on no contingency. Interest will be compounded semi-annually if not withdrawn. The Lamoille County Savings Sank and Trust Co., Syd.9 Park, Vt.
