M ORRIS VI LLE and HYDE PARK, Thursday. May 5, 1892. Iv. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. ARBOR DAY. A PROCLAMATION. The custom of appointing a day iu each year as Arbor Duy in jrrowinii iu popular favor. The benefits resulting from the plant ing of shade trees and ornamental shrubs are eo manifest that there is little doubt, that the day will soon be as generally observed as our time-honored Thanksgiving. The picturesque beauty of Vermont's scenery is every-where recognized, and that beauty constitutes no inconsiderable portion of our material wealth; and were we influ enced by no other than selfish motives, a day in spring-time devoted to lending na ture a helping hand in the work of keeping our hillsides and valleys green and of beauti fying our State, would be most profitably spent. But a higher, purer sentiment, a pat riotic desire to transmit to our children, im proved by our efforts and occupancy, the rich heritage which we enjoy, should prompt us to fittingly observe this day. I therefore designate Friday, May 13, 1892, as Arbor Day, and earnestly rec ommend that the day be devoted to the planting of trees and shrubs in the public parks, along our roadways, and around our homes. I especially urge that the day be observed by tb.9 schools through out the State as a holiday and that the teach ers organize their schools into bands of workers, that the best results may be there by secured. Given under my hand and the seal of the State, in Executive Chamber at Hyde Park, this twenty-sixth day Seal. of April, m the year of our .Lord one thousand eight hundred and ninety-two. CARROLL S. PAGE. By the Governor : Henry M. McFabland, Secretary of Civil and Military Affairs. The country exported over a bil lion dollars' worth of products dur ing the year ending March 31. The "billion-dollar" Congress helped to do it. State Treasurer Field has received up to date $1,688.27 for the Eus sian famine reliet fund, I his is a good showing for Vermont and an indication of her readiness to help in all worthy movements. The Landmark predicts "the elec tion of a Republican Governor next fall" in Louisiana. As that state has recently elected a Democratic Gov ernor we are of the opinion that Brer. Jameson must have just returned from a trip to New Hampshire when lie penned that editorial. The Democratic party have the floor this week in Vermont, and for a few days the Governor question, as far as the Republican party is con cerned, will have a rest. All eyes will be turned toward Montpelier, and the outcome of the Democratic fight will be eagerly looked for. The young bloods claim that they have got Hiram on the run, but the old chairman is calm and serene and is confident of taking many scalps at the convention Thursday. The trustees of the estate of the late Samuel J. Tilden have proved faithful stewards indeed. Up to September last the books showed an increase of $1,100,000 for the past five years. This was the net addi tion to the estate after paying all expenses of litigation, administra tion, etc. Matters are now bo ar ranged by mutual consent that two million dollars will be used for the establishment of a great library in New York City, which in part will carry out the purpose of the dead man. That the farmers of Vermont are becoming interested in the Guberna torial campaign is evident by the interest taken by those in Lamoille county at the farmers' meeting at Morrisville Tuesday. It was very evident from the remarks there made that they intend to use their best efforts to secure the nomination of a farmer. There appeared to be no special preference, but it was decided to support that farmer that had the strongest following in the conven tion, be it Spear, Chapin or Fletcher. The caucuses are to be well attended and efforts made to secure delegates favorable to some one of these gen tlemen. The Minneapolis Convention. Republican delegates to the Min neapolis convention were chosen last Week in Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Missouri, Nebraska, Colora do, Ohio and New York. In Ohio Wm. McKinley and Gen. Foraker are on the delegation, while in New York the delegation is headed by the " Big Four," Depew, Miller, Piatt and His cock, the same as headed the delega tion in '88. Some of the states, Ne braska, for instance, instructed for Harrison, but in the most cases the delegates will go to Minneapolis un pledged and uu-instructed. This is just as it should be. The National convention will be made up of sound, level-headed representative men of the party, and they may be depend ed upon to do what is best in the selection of a candidate. We have but little doubt that they will select President Harrison for the standard bearer. But whether it is Harrison or some other good man we know they will make a wise choice, and it is safe to say that the man named by the Republican convention will be the next President. It is issues more than men, and the party of protec tion and reciprocity, of sound money and an honest ballot, is sure to win. Judge Powers, who will head the Vermont delegation, said in a recent interview at Washington that, "The Vermont delegation is un Jnstmcted, but I believe the delega tion is, and I am sure that I am for the man who is sure to win. My first choice is the man who is sure to win, and my second choico is the man who is most likely to win. I regard the situation as simply this: As New York goes at this convention so go we all ; or, in other words, 1 think the New York delegation will deter mine the nominations. I would say also that New York is the key to the election, and the nominee of which ever party carries New York is the winner. If New York at the conven tion says Harrison, I think he will be the nominee. If New York says otherwise, I think he will not be nominated, and the importance of this can be fully realized if we recog nize the fact that New York deter mines the election in November." May Day, the day of the festive fisherman's delight, came very, very early in the week this year, but as the shades of eve were falling, sub stantial evidence was voted that the trouting season had been success fully opened. Lamoille County Court. bounty Court adjourned last Sat urday, finishing up the business of the term in five days. When court opened Tuesday morning indications pointed to a long term, as there were sixteen cases set for trial. Of this number, however, but three went to the jury the other thirteen being either settled or continued ; among them beiug the noted Baker case, which had it gone to trial, would havelastedsever.il days. The cases tried by jury were Woodward vs. Smith, (reported last week); Balch vs. School District, No. 0, and Chap pell vs. Chappell. The case of Estella M. Balch vs. School District No. 6 of Johnson was a very interesting one, and the result showed that some people have a few things to learn regarding the man agement of district schools. It ap pears that Miss Balch, who by the way is a resident of the district, was hired to teach the summer school, the committee agreeing to pay her $6.50 per week for twelve weeks. She taught two days and then was in formed that owing to an ' irregular ity" in the warning for the school meeting she would not be needed any longer. She expressed a surprise and manifested a willingness to fulfill her part of the contract. she, however, was not allowed to teach further; hence the suit. It is very loudly whispered that the real cause of all trouble was neighborhood jealousy. Some of the residents thought she was paid too much, and that the "irregular warning" movement was simply resorted to to get rid of the teacher. The court held that it was not necessary for a teacher before she closed a contract with a district to see if the prudential committee had been properly chosen, or to see if the warping had been legally made out. The' jury brought in a verdict for 1 Jn. to recover $81.12 and costs being full pay for the twelve weeks with interest. I . K. bleed, K. . Hulburd for Plff; W. Brigham, B. E. Bullard for Deft. The other jury case was that of Herbeit Chappell vs. Eugene Chap pell of Belvidere. This was an action in trover. Herbert sued his father to recover certain notes and farm implements. A few years ago the senior Chappell, while being sued for a divorce, placed the above property in his son's hands at least pretend ed to do so and made it appear that he was worth nothing. After the divorce he refused to "deliver the goods," and consequently the suit. Verdict for Plff. to the amount of $428.59. G. M. Powers and B. E. Bullard for Plff. ; Hendee & Fisk for Deft. State cases were disposed of as follows : State vs. Ella Buker of Hyde Park ; bigamy. Pled guiltv and was sen tenced to Windsor for one year. fetate vs. Chauncey Crocker, INo. Hyde Park; adultery.

Judge Start looked in on the court a short time baturday. It was a short term, but consider- ble business was transacted. The New Entry Docket contained thirty-five court and five chancery cases. Lawyer Stewart of Bakersfield, who is almost invariably in attend ance at the opening, did not put in an appearance until the second day. In dismissing the Jury, which had been empaneled for the Baker case, the Judge remarked with a twinkle in his eye, that "they didn't like your appearance and settled the case." The name most prominently men tioned by the bar as a successor to state s Attorney l'age is L. C Mootiy oi otowe. Mr. juoouv is a bright young lawyer, has lots of friends, and is in every way well fitted for the position. This was Mr. Chase's first appear ance here as stenographer, and if we cannot have the genial Minims, we think'a unanimous vote would be given for Mr. Chase, who in the short time here, proved himself a competent and courteous official. Judge Andrews is rounding out his second term as Assistant Judge and will not 6eek further honors in this direction. His associate, Hon. S. R. Miller, will undoubtedly be re tained for another term. He is very popular with the bar and the "lookers-on," and maintains the dignity of the bench with becoming grace. Head This. A conversation heard in Stowe a few days ago: "Have you seen any strangers puss this way recently ?" " I saw some yesterday." " Where were thev going?" "They were seekiug a place where they could buy monuments nnd head-stones for less money than could be bought at any other place." " Did they find such a place?" ' They did." "Where?" "At E. E. Foster's Marble Shop, Morris ville. Vt." " Did they visit Foster's shop?" 'They did." "What followed?" "After purchasing such work as suited them they returned back into the country rejoicing that they had saved about twenty per cent, of their money." Gathered in by the Bunco Stearers. THEY OPERATE IN BRISTOL. AND XEW HAVEN ONE WEALTHY FARMER KID NAPPED, DRUGGED, ROBDED OF $300 AXD LEFT ON THE MOUNTAIN TO SPEND THE M(iHT-$2500 MORE FROM ANOTHER FA RMER BY OA M E OF (A R I)S. One of the most remarkable crimes of the kind ever committed in Ver mont was successfully carried out by "lied" Austin and Ludlow, two no ted bunco men, on Tuesday. It is supposed that these men had been staying for some time at the Bard well House at Rutland. They came to the Stevens House at Vergennes on Monday by different trains and registered as A. B. Clark and B. C. Bolton of Boston. On Monday Aus tin hired a team and drove to Bristol and New Haven. At the former place after making many enquiries, he call ed upon Elisha Hewitt. Mr. Hewitt is a farmer 69 years old, who has a wife, two sons and three daughters. He is estimated to be worth $50,000. Austin introduced himself to Mr. Hewitt as the cashier of the Burling ton savings bank, and pretended that he was in search of a farm which he wished to buy of his sister. He talked with Mr. Hewitt on financial subjects and found that the latter usually carried a large sum of money on his person. From Bristol Austin drove seven miles to New Haven, where he visited Samuel Wright, tell ing him the same story which he re lated at Mr. Hewitt's. Mr. Wright is about 75 years old and is worth $40,000. Austin went back to Ver gennes, and in the morning he and Ludlow started out for business. Austin drove to Mr Hewitt's house, after leaving Ludlow beside the road. He invited Mr. Hewitt to look over the farm with him and the latter got into the carriage and the two droVe away. When they reached the fence where Ludlow was waiting Mr. Hew itt says he became suspicious, and "smelt tar." He attempted to get out of the carriage, but Austin took him by the shoulder, saying, Hold on, I will carry you back to the house." This is the last that Mr. Hewitt remembers until he became partially conscious on Lincoln moun tain seven miles away, the followinj; morning. He wandered home. The $300 which he carried with him in his pocket was missing. When he did not return at night the people in the vicinity were alarmed. There was ereat excitement and 100 people were out searching for him. It was sup posed that he had been murdered. As soon as the buncoers had dis posed of Mr. Hewitt they drove to New Haven and Ludlow was again left by the roadside and Austin called upon Mr. Wright, who consented to go out for a drive with him to see the farm. They met Ludlow, who said that he was the advertising agent of a big tea company, and that he had sent his team to Brooksville and was walking back to Vergennes for exer cise. Ludlow enquired about Mr. Wright's farm and offered him $50 for the privilege of putting up a bill board at a corner near the road. The offer was accepted, and Ludlow went on to tell about the immense advertising schemes of his company. He had one scheme that was way ahead of anything in its line. He would show it to them. So he pulled out a pack of plain white cards, on which characters were written. If the cashier of Mr. Wright drew the right card, that would win $5. The cashier whispered to Mr. Wright that he had seen the game before and thought they could win some money by it. Both drew and were success ful. The game was repeated and they won again. The tea merchant than told them that the tea compa ny had a grand prize of $2500. The cards were shuffled and Mr. right and the cashier each drew the grand $2300 prize. The tea merchant at once handed over two packages ot bills, each of which, he said contained $2500. These packages the cashier said he would place in a tin box which he had under the seat for safe keep ing. He already had $1000 in the box, he told Mr. Wright, which he was taking to Burlington to deposit in the bank for Mr. Noyes of New Haven. The money was placed in the box. The tea merchant then told them that they would be obliged to show them that they were each worth $2500 in order to retain the prize. The cashier said that he was willing to do so, but he could not till he got back to Burlington. Mr. Wright said that he would go to the bank in Vergennes and draw out $2500. All of this was agreeable to the tea merchant, who said that he would walk along the road towards Vergennes until the cashier returned with the money. So the cashier and Mr. Wright drove to the Vergennes National bank. Mr. Wright "got his money, and returning, they met the tea merchant on the road. Mr. Wright showed him the money and the tea merchant said that he must place it iu the box with the rest of the money. He would lock the box and keep the key. Mr. Wright would keep the box with the money until he(the tea mer chant) should return next week. The money would then be formally paid over. This pleased Mr. Wright and he deposited his money in the box. The cashier said that he would wrap the box up in paper, so Mr. Wright could carry it home. With the box in his hand he reached under the seat for some paper, wrapped up the box and cautioned Mr. Wrignt not to show it to his family. Mr. Wright, box under his arm, trudg-ed off towards home, while the cashier and the tea merchant got into the team and drove off towards Vergennes. Mr. Wright never reached home with the box, however. His grand son, who had suspected something wrong, had gone to the bank, found out that his grandfather had drawn out $2500, hurried after him and overtook him box under his arm on his way towards home. As quickly as possible he told his grandfather what had been done, and taking him into the team, they drove to Vergennes. Into State's Attorney Fish's office they rushed looking for Deputy Sheriff Middle brook. He was not there, so the box was opened. It contained a copy of the Police Gazette and a few sticks. The grandson and officers at once went in pursuit of the buncoers, who had only half an hour's start. Near Richmond all traces of the buncoers was lost. It has now been learned that they drove to Richmond, and made their escape on one of the trains. General William Wells, one of the best known citizens of Vermont, who was prominently spoken of last year as likely to be the successor of Sec retary of War Proctor in President Harrison's cabinet, died suddenly last Friday in New York City. lie had gone there, accompanied by Mrs. Wells, on a business trip, and was staying at the Windsor hotel. Ex Senator Edmunds, an old friend of General Wells, took charge of the body and had it taken to an under taker's, where, at Mr. Edmunds' re quest, it was viewed by a coroner, who granted a permit for its re moval from out of town. General Wells was born in Waterbury De cember 14, 1892. He commanded the second brigade of the third cav alry division in the Army of tha Potomac, and for some time was at the head of that division. After June, 1805, he commanded the first separate brigade of the second army corps at l airtax uourt-nouse. lie was engaged in numerous battles and was twice wounded. CAMBRIDGE.
