MORRIS VILLE and HYDE PARK. Thursday, August 27. 1SS1. L. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. President Harrison left Vermont Thursday for Mt. McGregor, where he spent Friday as the guest of W.J. Arkell. The day wan the 58th birth day of the President, and a banquet was given in honor of the event. If that alleged picture of President Harrison in the Free Press of Tues day isn't sufficient cause for the re moval of the Collector of Customs at Burlington for " offensive" partisan ship, Bro. Benedict need have no fear of that charge being brought up against him again. The women are taking a hand in the anti-lottery crusade in Louisiana. Thev have organized a league whose object is to aid in the overthrow of the lottery swindle an issue which is now being hotly contested in that state. It is hoped that the aid the women give in the contest will be suf ficient to overcome the monster evil As will be seen by the letter else where Gov. Page has notified Secre tary Proctor that he has been select ed a the man whom he will appoint as successor to Senator Edmunds. Mr. Page has given the matter care ful consideration and believes he best serves the interests of his constitu ents by making this selection. Mr Proctor will prove himself an able and acceptable successor to Senator Edmunds. The selection is a most excellent one. The campaign in Ohio opened at Kiles Saturday last, when Major Me Kinley spoke to an audience of sev eral thousand. It was a strong ar gument against free .silver and plain and convincing talk on the tar iff question. It is nearly three months before the election takes place, but there will be considerable polities to the square inch there dur ing that time, in which not only Ohio but the entire nation will manifest great interest. President Harrison is spending a few days this week in this state. He spent a few hours at Burlington Tuesday as the guest of Senator E I munds. The same evening he went to St. Albans, there being the guest of Gov. Smith. At both places the President met with a hearty recep tion and was greeted by a large crowd of people. Wednesday morn ing he goes to Montpelier and will spend a few hours there as the guest of Gov. Page. While there he will visit the legislature and probably address that body. In the afternoon he goes to St. Johnsbury, at that place being the guest of Col. Fair banks, and on Thursday to White River Junction ; from there he goes to Secretary Proctor's home at Proc tor, where he will remain until Satur day, going then to Cape May. The recent change in the editorial manacement of the Express and Rt.TWA hn caused a few topers rat-t&a polities waTSt the bottom of the transaction, and that the gu bernatorial question would soon be made interesting by that sheet. The new editor puts a quietus upon that idea in this manner : " This paper has no particular can didate for Governor, and will favor the one, other things being equal, whose nomination will best promote the harmony and success of the re publican party." People this way have been given to understand that the next National G. A. R. encampment will be at Lin coln, Nebraska. Cambridge Tran script. Oh, no! People who read the above paper may have been thus mis guided ; but those who read the News and Citizen were informed that the next encampment would be held at Washington the place selected. The tendency of humanity to make a hero out of a criminal is again for cioiy snown uy ine attention given to the foul murderer, Almy. We fail to see where good can result from such attention, and while a criminal ought to receive fair and decent treatment, he should not be lionized and treated as if he were an honored guest and not a villain of the black est character. The Boston Record speaks thus plainly upon this sub ject : " Now we are having the silly sea son in regard to the murderer Almy A more despicable murder never was committed, and yet to read some of the papers an ordinary person would be likely to believe that, after all, the murder was only a demonstration of Almy h great affection for his victim lesterday the girl a father went to Bee Almy, and one of the papers sava this morning that the latter "spoke very Kindly to tne lather of his vie fun. If we are not much mistaken when all the facts are known, this Almy will turn out to be as hardened a villain as is often found, and the sooner he ia put out of the way, and the less attention is given to making a martyr ot him, the better it would be for all concerned. Stand up for Vermont. Of all the evils that afflict our state none are greater than the chronic complaining habit of large numbers of her people. Growling seems to be the fashion. A square manly out spoken good loyal word of genuine appreciation of the real merits of the grand old state is rare, lam is all wrong. Let us call a halt, and face about and march forward to a differ ent tone and key note. Complaints cure nothing. Let us learn to help rather than to hinder the progress Vermont has furnished the world with men of brain and enterprise of which her sons Bhould reioice. Our resources are ample, but they need confidence and capital, business sense and industry to develop them. Our climate is favorable for summer resi dence for city people, let us advertise it. Our people are all light when once they get into the right mood. Let us have more confidence and less complaining. St. Albans Advocate.

Following ia the letter State of Vermont, 1 executive department, Hyde Park, Aug. 24, '91. J Hon. Redfield Proctor, Proctor, Vt.: Dear Sir: After careful considera tion of all the names suggested, 1 have decided to appoint you U. S. Senator to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of lion. Geo. F. Ed munds. Primarily I deem it my duty to satisfy my own judgment as to what selection would test promote the wel fare of Vermont, and of the whole country. But I have at the same time felt that I was acting largely in a representative capacity and that if, without doing injustice to my own judgment, I could meet the wishes of a large majority of the people of V er- mont, it would be my duty and pleasure so to do. 1 have with considerable care, sought and received, personally and by fetter, ttie views of prominent er monters in every count y in the State The result of my investigation leaves me m no doubt as to official duty If therefore, on the first day of No vember next it should be incumbent on me to fill the vacancy referred to, 1 propose to tender you the appoint ment. I inform yon of my decision at this time, not only because I believe you should have reasonable notice of my intention, but because, having reach ed the above conclusion, I cannot see that the public good will be subserved by further discussion.

Almy who murdered Chris tie Warden in cold blood on the even ing of July 17, in a lonely spot near her home in Hanover, N. II., was arrested Thursday. He was secreted in the barn at the Warden homestead where he had been ever since the mur der. The way in which his hiding place was discovered is thus described : Monday evening Mrs. Warden, while looking for some chickens in t he barnyard, discovered a small open ing in the underpinning, which she thought might lead to the chicken s hiding-place. She removed a small board ana found on the inside an empty jelly tumbler and further in twelve cans which had recently con tained salmon, oysters, peaches and other substantial eatables. There were also empty wine and beer bot ties. Wednesday morning F. W. Davidson and N. A. Jb rost made further investi gations under the barn, finding more bottles and a formidable bludgeon about the shape, but somewhat Ion ger than a policeman s club. Knowing that the cellars of several private families in the village had been robbed of eatables they visited these people and found beyond all question that the goods came from there, and farther, that some had been taken as recently as Aug. 10 Wednesday night Prof. G. H Whitcher and Sheriff H. C. Brown watched the premises. At about two o'clock, while they were hid in some corn in thegarden, a man whom they first supposed to be Warden, came towards them to some apple trees within ten feet of where they stood. Says Prof. Witcher "I thought it was Warden, but as he came nearer I thought I recognized Almy's walk. He was bare-footed, his pants were torn and he looked pale and thin. He had a bug with him and filled it while he ate ravenously. After a lit-, tie while he leisurely and unsusoect-1 ingly walked back to the barn and passed around the eastern side. That was the last we saw of him." They returned to the village, arous ed about 40 men, who proceeded to and surrounded the building. Sheriff Stevens and Solicitor Mitchell were on the ground and the search of the barns commenced. About 5 a. m. the barn was com pletely surrounded and a systematic search begun under the supervision of Ueputy bheriQ Stevens. ine Darn in itseit is an immense structure, besides being directly con nected with many out-buildings. It is in one of these that the murderer Almy has had his hiding place during all these weeks, while officers have been scouring the distant country His retreat was so located in the new mown hay that through a crack he commanded a complete view of all the movements of the Warden house hold. A more neatly situated place could not beimagined. This was dis covered about six o'clock, but he had fled to some other part of the hay mow. The company of forty men who were summoned to dislodge Almyfrom the barn at earlv daylight, was rap idly increased as the news spread that the whereabouts ot the murderer had been lound. After a short discussion of ways and means a party entered the main barn, with which numerous sheds and outbuildings are connected and began to pitch over the hay on the high mow over tne cow stalls After a little time some short hay, which had evidently been cut with a knife, was reached and directly there came from beneath the hay a number oi pistol shots rapidly hred, though the refugeecould not be seen. At this the searchers beat a retreat, all ex cept one, a plucky younjr student at the agricultural college, iJharles E Hewitt, who returned Aim v's fire from his own pistol until his cartridges were exhausted, when he plunged down the mow and out the door. As he did so a final shot from Almy graled his iace. Another conference followed outside and as a result of it a formal demand was made on Almy to come out of his hiding place and surrender. This had no effect on him, except to call out a threat of instant death for any one wno approacnea him. Finally, however, Almy asked for a conference with John Fuller, the su perintendent of the college farm. Ful ler responded to his request and went to the opening leading from the main barn to the ox barn, where Almy was 6eated on the hay, with a big revol ver in each hand. Almy told Mr. Fuller that he had killed Christie, that ho had been hiding there ever since the deed, threatened to shoot himself, asked for advice, said all he wanted was protection and a fair trial, etc. Mr. Fuller advised him to talk with States Attorney Mitchell, who went in at Almy's request. To him he promised to surrender if he was guar anteed protection and a fair trial. This the official promised him, and in the meantime the excited crowd out side were urged to restrain themselves and let the law take its course. Almy, however, did not keen his word, and there was further parleying and attempts to dislodge him. Final ly Mr. Fuller went to him again at Almy's request, and the final result of it all was that Almy gave himself up, surrendering one revolver to Mr. Fuller and the other to Mr. Mitchell. His surrender finally came some time about noon. Examination of his body showed that two ofyoungllew- tt b bullets had taken effect, one lodging in his thigh and the other breaking the large bone of the log below the knee. A rifle shot fired by a person outside the barn had made a notch in the scalp on top of his head. His hiding place was about JU ieec deep under the hay. It was attempted to taKe Aimy to the village in a closed carriage, but the crowd became so angry and ex cited at the prospect of losing sight of him that the curtains had to be raised. He was taken to the Whee- lock House in Hanover village, where he was placed under a strong guard and his wounds were dressed. Olficers with loaded pistols kept back the ex ited crowd at the toot ot the stairs. His arraignment will take place to day it ins coiHimon permits. According to t he story told by Al v he was hiding in and about Han over for a mouth before hecommitted the murder. He professes that he did not intend to kill the girl, but only to get a chance to talk with her. The first shot, through her head, which killed her instantly, he pretends was accidental. After doing the deed he went at on?e into hiding in the Warden barn, and there he watched all the movements of the family, saw the funeral, etc. There he has re mained ever since, going out at night to forage for food. Several times he . . t i it says, he has gone ana piaceu nowers on Christie s grave. NOT FRANK C. ALMY BUT GEORGE II. ABBOTT. Hanover, N. H., Aug. 22 It has been learned that Frank C. Aliny is it t r t l i j. j. none other man ueorge it. auuoil, who escaped from Windsor, t., about six years ago. arden Oakes and two superin tendents from Windsor have lust identified him positively as the man sentenced. A reporter has just had an interview witn a prominent, citizen ui jiicuiu, who lives not far from where Abbott s home was in that town. He savs: "Abbott came to Thet- ford when about 15 years old to live with his uncle, Israel Abbott. He was a bright, quick-witted boy, but showed a marked propensity for stealing. As he grew older he showed a decided fondness for women, and was a great favorite with them. In 18 1 o he was arrested for breaking into Hale's jewelry store at Orford, and was sentenced to four years in the Concord state prison. This term was shortened by good behavior, and he came back to Thetford and lived so far as known a most exemplary life till 1880. "During the early part of that year the towns of Thetford, Fairlee and Orford were ransacked generally by some midnight marauder, who it was later found out was Abbott. He was shot in the hip while making his escape from J. K. Carr's house in Orford. "These depredations were commit ted with adroitness, but suspicion pointed to Abbott. He had disap peared from his uncle's farm, Lilt glimpses obtained of him by people whose houses and stores have been robbed, confirmed their suspicion. " It had been noticed that a strange hand car had been seen several times near the railroad by Ely sta tion on the Passumpsic Railroad. This with other things led to the conclusion that an outlaw had his headquarters near that place. The next day after November election of 1880 a general hunt like that one at Hanover was organized. Seventy five men, well armed, after half a day's search, located him in a rudely built hut among the ledges which plainly overlook the station at Ely and not more than half mile from it," He resisted and was fired upon. Some 30 shots hitting him in the back. He was finally overpowered and taken into custody by the sher iff, S. K. Berry, of Thetford and Ed ward Peaslee, of Bradford. He was taken to Berry s house and put to bed. On the fourth day of his captivity, while Berry was out of the room, he made a break from his bed, and, in his shirt, dashed from the room, snatching a coat as he ran. He was not missed until out of sight. Another search was started and he was found hiding in a stone culvert. He told the officers then that if he had not been so badly wounded he would have swam the Connecticut River and made good his escape. He was taken to Chelsea jail, tried and sentenced to 15 years in state prison. Insurance That Doesn't Insure. Insurance Commissioner Merrill of Massachusetts has issued an interest ing report on the assessment endow ment orders. The short term orders six months and one year, are the ones that are in the worst mess. Ten of these are covered by the report. Of these the seven best have paid in the last six months $3G,2'J4 in sick bene fits and $1. 021,924 on matured cer tificates, and their running expenses while doing it have been $498,014. One of them the Golden Grail, has overdue and unpaid claims of $207, 000 without a dollar in the treasury according to its own report. Another the Friendly Aid Society, has matur ed claims of $238,775 with only $40, 000 on hand. The others are not jet staggering quite so badly, but the figures only need to be summa rized to see how sure the end is. They have only made a beginning of pay ing, though the money is so nearly exhausted in several cases. They have only paid off 15,341 certificate holders, and there are 85,422 to be paid within the next 12 months with claims aggregating $10,281,325. Al ready in some of the concerns mem bers have had to pay back $115 to get $100, simply because the earlier ones got it for so much less. And the discrepancy is one that is bound to increase fast.

Tli ProcrMian -TI Orailoa.-Ik Bauourt.-IBe liwworm Bennington Vt., 1 yening, J, 18'Jl.j Uednesday nv August 1 Vermont's great day at Benning ton is over, and it lias neen as com plete and happy a success as the most ardent and patriotic ou oi i"e Green Mountain state could desire. conions shower which fell yester day afternoon laid the dust, washed the foliage clean, and put the streets in fine condition for the great par ade. The weather of the day has been simply perfect. It has been such a dav of bright sunshine, bracing air and refreshing breezes as comes now and then at this season to show the New England climate at its best and reveal its possibilities. It has seemed like the smile of Heaven, hallowing the srreat memories of the day, and upholding the hands of those who have worked earnestly to make those memories a permanent and abiding realitv. The town was early astir, or, rath er, it should be said that, with the rumble of incoming trains, the ar rival of country folk from all the towns around, and the busy work of DieDaration elsewhere going on, Ben nington was at no time in a state of t i .1.. ..:.!., i.f. Tl, nn hc uurn it tne ukiiu ikiuic. j.hc; interest of the early morning centred at the camp ground. Here, as soon as breakfast was eaten and guard mount was over, a volley from 1 ul ler s rifles called out the difterenC or ganizations to begin the formation of the line for the grand procession Thousands of people watched and applauded as these, one after anoth er, marched across the spacious grounds to their appointed places While this was in progress President Harrison and party drove from uen McCullough's at North Bennington where they had spent the night, and alighted at the Soldier's Home, ready to take their places near the head of the procession at the moment ot de parture. Promptly at 10 o'clock came the appointed signal gun, and then the long and bn.liant procession of military and civic bodies, the like of which has never belore been seen in Vermont, marched out through the arched entrance to the camp trrounds and started on its route through the Bennington streets and thence away up the hill, with historic associations on every side, to the monument. The mass of people which lined the route of the proces sion in its earlier stages, was contin uous. The decorations were general and in many cases they were profuse and beautiful. The piece ot resist ance was the grand triumphal arch erected across Main street just below the Putnam House. 1 his was a mas sive structure in perfect imitation of solid masonry, rising to a command ing height in the center, with tur reted towers on either side. Here at the arch was gathered a greater num her of spectators than at any other single point, probably hve or six thousand in all. On the arch was stationed a chorus of 150 girls dressed in white, who sang patriotic airs as the procession approached and passed underneath, the crowd cheering loudly and waving hats and handkerchief's meanwhile. On the second platform of the arch stood Id girls dressed in costumes to rep resent the Id original states, and surmounting an stood a young wo man attired as the Goddess of Liber ty, and forming a very effective and original feature of the great display THE PROCESSION. In its general features tfie grand procession was made up as follows .Sheriff John Robinson, with platoon of mounted deputien. l'latoon of Police. Brig.-Gen.

Very many of the different organi zations were accompanied by their own bands of music ; there was a great variety of uniform and cos tume, and the scene presented by the Xroeession as a whole was rarely pic turesque and inspiring. The review ing stand for the President and other officers was erected some distance up Main street, and on arrival there short halt was made while the Presi dent and his party entered the stand, and then the long line resumed its way toward the monument. A full hour was occupied by the procession in passing a given point. ine stand lor the speakers and in vited guests had been erected on the side of the monument which looks down the main street of old Benning ton, and here the oration and other exercises took place. President Har rison, who rode in the procession with uncovered head, graciously ac knowledging the applause every where given him, entered the stand at the monument on Gov. Page s arm, while the assembled thousands cheered loudly. Ex-Lieut.-Governor AVoodburv escorted the President to theeasy chair assigned him. At his right sat Hon. E. J. Phelps, orator oltlie day. On his left were Gov Page and ex-Gov. Prescott of New Hampshire, president of the battle monument association. Col. W. G Veazey, who was president of the day, called the assemblage to order, and in a few openingremarksremind ed the assemblage of the great events this day celebrated. Rev. diaries Parkhtirst followed with prayer, and then Gov. Page gave the address of welcome in felicitous and well-chosen words. Then followed ex-Gov. Pres cott of New Hampshire, who, in his official capacity already mentioned, made the formal transfer of the mon ument to the state of Vermont. Gov. Page accepted the .monument in be- in.lt' of the people, and then Hon. E. J. Phelps delivered the oration. The effort was worthy iff author, worthy Vermont, and worthy tl.e great oc casion winch it nttingiy commem orated. Tears repeatedly wet the faces of the honored men, guests of the state, who sat near the speaker, ns they listened to the eloquent pe riodsfilled with tender reco cctions of the past and hopeful words for the future, with which he closed. At the conclusion of Mr. Phelps' address. President Harrison was in- oduced and snoke briefly, but in his happiest view, recoe-nizing the unique history of Vermont and the unique place which she occupies in the nation, and paying tribute to the sturdy manhood which has been the product ot the patriotic endeavor and honest toil of her sons. It was after 3 o'clock when the President closed, and the exercises at the mon ument were concluded with music and the benediction, after which the line of march was resumed back to the camp-ground. As soon as possible after the arriv al t here, seats were taken at the ban quet tables, which had been spread in two large tents on the Soldiers' Home grounds. The arrangement of the tents and tables was very handsome and effective. Flowers in profusion decked the tables and entwined the poles of the tents. Over the long raised table at one side of the main tent, provided for the President and other distinguished guests, were ar ranged two large American flags, un der which sat the President. Gov. Page and others. In the larger tent plates were laid for 2400 people, and lor j. uu in the smaller, but the num ber of tickets sold was not as great as was anticipated. When the re past was finished, Col. Veazey rapped tne company of 2000 or more audi tors to order and introduced Presi dent Harrison as the first after-din ner speaker. The President's speech was one of the most forcible of all his reported utterances on impromptu occasions. He paid an elegant trib ute to the Green Mountain boys of Hit, and to the patriotic, self re specting sons of " ermont of to-dav, recognizing the source of strength which they have been to the country in their migrations to many distant states, in speaking of national al fairs President Harrison declared, in the strongest terms, his belief in an honest, conservative dollar for the currency of the country, a currency every dollar of which issued by the government, whether of paper or of coin, must be as good as any other donar. in his closing sentences Mr Harrison paid a feeling and admiring tribute to the courage, devotion and patience of the women of Vermont. " It was an easier fate, " hesaid,"to march with bared breftsts against the Hessian ramparts at Benning ton, than to sit in the lonely home stead, awaiting the issue, with tear ful eyes upturned to God for those who periled their lives for the cause. All honor to the Aew England moth er, the queen ot the New England home. At the conclusion of the President s remarks. Judge John V Carney, chairman of thecitizens, com mittee ot htty, arose and presented to uie x resiaent a gold badge or medal commemorating the day's eel ebration and the battle monument. In replying Mr. Harrison said, " It needed not this memento to remind me of this auspicious occasion The speakers who followed the President were Gov. Russell of Mass achusetts, Gov. Tuttle of NewHampr snire, uen. u. u. Howard ot JNew tork, Secretary Proctor, Attorney lieneral Miller, Uen. A. S. Webb, Gen McCullough, ex-Gov. Rice of Massa chusetts, Col. Albert Clarke, E. B. Sherman of Chicago and others. Gen Alger of Michigan, who spoke for the women ot V ermont, felicitousfy said that the only trouble about rearing a monument to their memory is that the skies are not high enough The speaking was finished at about 7 o clock. At 8 o clock began a mag niheent display of fireworks, the fin est ever seen in Vermont, on the grounds beyond the Soldier's Home. This lasted until 9.30, and then the great day, a dayinf proud and happy memories tor all tvho participated in its proceeding, wis at nneml. was very large, Jupward of 30,000, doubtless, the inpouring; of strangers from a distance did not approach the 7.",000 or more which many had anticipated. The numerous obser vation stands erected along the line of march must have been a losing venture, for in many cases they were almost empty. The broad country spaces, free as the air and water, were too large and numerous for vis itors to be tempted to pay a fee for other points of outlook that were no better. The people of Bennington worked with great zeal for the success of the celebration. Their enterprise and exertion knew no bounds, and to them, aiding and seconding the offi cial state committee, an unstinted meed of praise is due.

Observation by the New Kngland Meteorological Society. Cambridge, Mass., Aug. 24. The New England Meteorological society, co operating with the United States weather bureau, issues the following bulletin: The rain which fell over greater portion of Nev England on the 15 16th, served to check the evil effects of the drouth, al though the amount varied considerably in different sections. In Rhode Island the top of the ground was well soaked and crops temporarily benefited. The averaie temperature has been about the normal, and the sunshine slightly above the normal. In southwestern New England the dry weather seems to have seriously affected the crops, but throughout the greater part of New England all crops are doing well and the farmer has no cause to com plain. Corn is flourishing and with warm weather and sunshine for the next few weeks, a large crop is assured. The grain harvest is going on in the north central sections and is found very full and heavy as in the south. Considerable hay remains to be cut in the back towns, especially in the northern states. The rovven laud, but iu central and southern New England it will be very light unless con siderable rain falls. Potatoes continue to yield abundantly, with very few indica tions of rot. Tobacco cutting is at its height and a splendid crop is assured. Pears and plums are generally plenty. Winter apples are very light. Piiof. W. M. Davis, Director. J. Wakken Smith, Assistant. Dainty Foods Demand it. N EVERY Re ceipt that calls for baking powder, use the "Royal." Better results will be obtained because it is the purest. It will make the food lighter, sweeter, of finer flavor, more di gestible and wholesome. It is always reliable and uniform in its work. I have found the Royal Baking Powder superior to all others. C.
