MORRISVILLE and HYDE PARK, Thursday, June 15, 1893. I. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. The banks are everywhere through out the country exercising the ut most caution in making loans, usu ally extending accommodations only to their regular customers, and re stricting even them to actual neces sities. The present is a good time to go slow and keep out of reckless specu lation. Those who industriously at tend to their legitimate business and are not tempted to speculate outside on credit are in no danger of finan cial shoals. Matters are at last fully under way in the Columbian Exposition at Chi cago and from now forward it may be expected that the visitor will be amply rewarded for whatever ex pense of money and time is necessary to see this unparalleled exhibit. A statement prepared by Comp troller Eckels shows that from Jan. 1 up to June 1 twenty national banks with a capital of f 6,150,000 failed, as against seven national banks wich a capital of $625,000 for the corresponding period of 1892. It is said that a new telephone has been placed in the market which does not infringe upon the Bell pat ents, and is so much cheaper that a line of five miles in length, including batteries, transmitters and receivers, can be constructed for $62.50. The days for themonopolyarenurabered. The Burlington Free Press has been sued for libel to the amount of $50,000, by II. O. Edy, of Montreal, a member of the murdered family at Clarenceville, V. Q. The plaintiff claims that the Free Press, in a two column article, in effect, charged him with being the murderer. We think it will be a pretty long day before Mr. Edy recovers that amount. The Free Press will reap the on?y benefit, a liberal amount of free advertising, that comes out of the suit. One of the greatest actors the world has ever known passed away in the death of Edwin Booth, which occurred in New York last week. With him the stage was not a pastime or a make-shift, but a pro fession worthy of the best effort that man is capable of. He was a man of high order of intellect, a student and a scholar. Few men in any profes sion worked harder than he did ; none worked more conscientiously. He was high-toned, of great dignity of manner and of character ; of pure and blameless life, and he made his name honored throughout the world. An item is circling the rounds of the state press to the effect that widows and orphans who have money deposited in savings banks will get one-half cent less interest on their money on account of a certain act to provide for the verification of savings bank books passed by our late legislature. Act No. 71 is the one reterred to. "Why " widows and orphans" should lose that amount of interest and other depositors suf fer no less is what puzzles us. Who will make the matter clear? Land mark. For preposterous nonsense the above takes the cake. Every bank is compelled by law to verify the bank books and savings banks have no right to charge depositors for so doing. No bank inthestatewilldoso. Col. Veazey on Pensions. Col. Wheelock G. Veazey was one of the most popular and most re spected commander-in-chiefs that the Grand Army of the Republic has had in a number of years, and what he has to say in relation to the pen sion list and the merits of the old soldiers will have considerable w eight with thoughtful persons throughout the country. Col. Veazey has con tributed to the Forum, which has been publishing symposiums upon the pension question, an able article dealing with the subject upon the broad principles of right and justice. Col. Veazey takes direct issue with those who hold that the pension list is unduly large and that the veterans are overpaid. He says that he has never favored pension legislation based on the idea of compensation for the service of the veterans; for "all the mines of the earth do not contain sufficient gold and silver and gems for that." He remembers the pledges of the government, made at the time when their services were needed, and to him the contract be comes more sacred as the years pass. The pledge of the govemment to the soldiers was to the effect that neither they nor those dependent upon them should be allowed to suf fer from physical misfortunes and distresses. This pledge, he believes, will be kept. Some provision may be necessary to cure past or prevent future frauds upon the law, but the general provisions of the law will never be narrowed. "If radical changes occur they will be on the line of even greater liberality, the same as we have seen in behalf of the sur viving soldiers of the Mexican war." Col. Veazey's position which is here outlined is essentially round, and it is one, we take it, that is held by in common by the great body of Grand Army veterans. None are more inter ested than the old soldiers themselves in having the pension list kept a "roll of honor". The veterans nhnvo nil others are interested in preventing irauus oy ana witn tlie aid of the pension laws. But the old soldiers who are entitled to pensions do not ask for money in the name of charity. mi j i . , . ... , . " j.uey ueiuanu tneir ngnc and what was promised tnem. A government bond is by right held to be one of the safest and best securities, and in the matter of pen sions 88 Well as in other liwtfriri our government can not afford to do otnerwise man to snow that its word is as good as its bond. It is right to guard against fraud and to remedy abuse, but theadministration which' breaks the country's pledges w its veteran aeienaers will in turn be rejected and cast out by the Amer ican people, whose love of right and justice is, and will be, as enduring as time itseu. The Borden murder trial at New liediortl, Mass., grows more inter esting with each day. The prosecu tion has not made as strong a show ing as was expected, and there are rumors that the defense has a sur prise in store which will upset the fine theories of the prosecution. Opinions based upon the testimony taken up to this time vary widely, and to the majority of those who have followed the case the mystery is as deep as ever. 'f he Causes of Businesg Depression. In these days of bank failures, financial anxiety and general busi ness depression, the question is asked, "What is the cause of it?" There are many attempts ;it ex planation, but few are satisfactory, lion. Ii. G. Ilorr. a man of keen ob-st-i vntion has recently made an ex tended tour through the west and in the N. Y. Tribune gives what we think is the most correct explana tion of the uneasiness of the financial condition of the country : Outside of the flurry occasioned by the collapse of several industrial stocks and the decline of so many others, there is to be found, however, a general feeling of anxiety among the entire uusiness men oi tue ivi tion. I meet it wherever I go. It is confined to no particular line of busi ness and to the members ol no par ticular party. A sort of dread seems to be taking possession of active business men. I have met a large1 number of them recently who have told me of new enterprises in which they have intended to engage, but who have decided to wait and see what comes from all this turmoil. Such universal distrust is a calam ity. It can come only from some widespread cause. What is it? No such feeling was abroad in this country eight months ago. At that time, go where I would, men were telling of business, of new activities, of improvements in the markets, of an advance in the price of farms, of a large output of shops and factories, or an increased sale of home produc tions. All spoke cheerfully of the outlook of the future. Now all is changed. No man can travel through the country to-day with his eyes open and not discovor a marvellous change. What has caused it? It seems to me there can be only one answer to this question. The present state of affairs comes from the general distrust of business men as to the policy which is to be pur sued by the party in power. No one is able to gain any definite idea as to what is going to be done. The Democrats themselves are all at sea. One predicts one course; another names another plan; none of them has any well-defined policy. The trouble arises from the fact that the Democratic party itself is united in nothing. It has really no settled policy. During the campaign of 1892 it was animated only by one single desire namely, to get into power. It was all things to all men, so as to secure votes. Once in power,! however, the situation has suddenly changed. Now they are called spon to act, not talk. What are they going to do? is on the lips of every man one meets. The utter inability of any living man to answer that question is where the trouble all lies at this moment. What are they going to do on the money question? Is the party in favor of honest or dishonest money? Will they remove the tax on the State banks and create a host of that class of institutions? How vicious will be their revision of the tariff? Will they do their best to ruin our home indutries? How are they going to reduce duties on the one hand, and, on the other, raise the money needed- to run the Government? Which wing of the party will control its legislation? They were all agreed in wanting to get into power. Now they are in power what will they do? These questions are being constantly asked by the men who do the busi ness of this nation. The fact that no one is able to give an answer to these questions is the cause of the distrust and doubt which to-day are injuring the business prospects of our people. Capital is uuturully timid. It hesi tates to enter unknown fields of labor, Business men try new ventures only when they can relyon permanentsur- roundings. lo inspire public confi dence a political party must have well-denned principles. Those prin ciples must not only be clearly defined but the large majority of the party must understand and believe in them. The party would then beagreedupon some wen-Known policy, ine coun try is suffering to-day because the Government is in the hands of a party which has no settled plan of management, and which is not agree! upon any question of import ance. The business men of the country fear that the men of sense who are members of the Democratic party are liable to find themselves in a Btnall minority, and that legislation soon to be adopted will be shaped and controlled by the wild and un safe fanatics who so largely outnum ber the men of sense in the Demo cratic party. Within my memorv 1 have never seen so great a change in tue Business ouuook in so short a time. Every patriotic citizen, without re gard to party affiliations, can have only one desire. It is this: that some method will yet be devised to restore confidence among active bus iness men so that the whee's of in dustry may be kept in motion. For one, I sincerely hope that such a re sult may be reached. I am compel led, however, to admit that my con- naence in the Democratic party to solve a difficult problem is not of sufficient strength to make me very cheerful. I hope for the best, but fear the consequences. The custom inaugurated some years ago oy j.ne unristian Union of .New lork city of publishing in early sura mer an "Outing Number" devoted to out-of-door articles, travel hints, and useful information for tourist and vacation-seekers has been an unnual ified success. This year's issue (June 10) has 88 pages, abounds in light and entertaining reading, and for the first time is illustrated in colors. The paper has been fortunate enough to secure for this purpose some of Mr. m. uopkinton Smith's water-color paintings, which are reproduced with exactness and artistic finish by an entirely new process. Among the writers in this issue are Mr. F. Hon- KuiLua omicn, wno supplemented his famous "A Day at Laguerre's " with a paper called "Along the Bronx " Mr. C. I). Lanier, Mr. F. D. Sherman, Mr. F. S. Palmer, Mrs. Christine Ter hune Herrick, Air. Eichard Burton, and others. The list of summer re sorts occupies many pages and gives at a single glance the fullest informa tion in this line about all parts of the country. (Single copies, ten cents.) Thirty pieces of the rich lace sent by Queen Margherita of Italy to the World's Fair were found to have been stolen when the goods were un packed at Chicago Saturday even ing. The United States gave $100, 000 to guarantee the safe return of the laces to Italy, and some lively detective work is likely to be done. The Countess Di Brazza accompanied the laces and was engaged to watch them, but a humble detective would probably have rendered better ser vice. The fair has drawn the world's thieve as well as its nobility to the United States. J A man who stands on his ilirmif in this irreverent world is vorv i;t boy walking on stilts.

That is wnat they were lookmg for. oov. mokiley, Hon. V. H. McKinley was re-nominated for Governor of Ohio at the State Convention at Columbus last Thursday. The nomination was unanimous, and that he will be elect ed by a large majority no onedoubts. In accepting the nomination Gov. McKinley spoke in part as follows: Ivepublicanism will have a severe test in Ohio this year. This state is the coveted field of the opposition ; they will center here, but with unity, harmony and courage our party will triumph over all. We do not wait for the enemy to form their line and challenge us to contest. We chal lenge them early upon every issue and upon every line of controversy, state or national, which divides us. The national administration has done nothing thus far except to create in the minds of business men a deep distrust. The financial situation, which for the most part has prevailed since the 4th of March, has not been improved nor has the financial strin gency been relieved by anything the national administration has said or done. It has announced no policy, suggested no relief, and given no sign of its disposition or ability to restore confidence, stop the outflow of gold to foreign countries and the contraction which has taken place at home. The Democratic victory of 1892 has not been able to bring the better times promised. It has not been able to maintain the good times which were enjoyed everywhere in this coun try on the day of victory. Business failures have increased, banks have suspended, money is harder to bor row, and borrowers are compelled to pay higher interest for their loans than for many years. Feverish un certainty prevails in every financial and business circle. Labor and capi tal are in doubt about the future. The Governor referred to Mr. Cleve land's delay in calling Congress to gether to act upon financial affairs and said : "Inconvenient as it may seem to the President, Congress must be con sulted. If he has been withholding the call for an extra session of Con gress in the belief that still greater financial distresses and still added bankruptcies are necessary to bring his party associates to the adoption of his views, then Democratic ascend ency will prove a costly lesson to the people and an expensive experiment to the country. What will the Democrats do with the tariff? We can only wait and see; but the waiting and the anxiety is paralyzation. Certain is it they will make wool free, and thus strike down one of Ohio's great agricultu ral products. Tin plate also must be free, and the new and splendid enter prises for making black sheets and tinning them must be crippled finan cially, the millions of capital invested imperilled, and the thousands of workingmen driven from employ ment or be forced to work at reduced wages. Sugar will have to go from the list of free articles to the list of tariffed articles, and cheap sugar be again made dearer to the masses. Coal, an other product of Ohio, must be made free. A general revision upon a Brit ish Free Trade basis must take place, and, upon which promises they claim their victory was won, every vestige of protection for the laboring man and industries of the United States must be withdrawn and a Free Trade era must be inaugurated. The Democratic party represents an anomalous situation to-day. Di vided on spoils and torn up over the distribution of office, disturbed with the tariff and widely separated on the money question, inharmonious upon every vital issue, divided into admin istration and anti-administration factions in this condition they are confronted with the grave and most serious questions affecting the wel fare of the country, its credit and honor, and the prosperity of the people." The Enemies of the Soldiers. Every Bourbon in Washington and everv Copperhead throughout the country is shrieking about the pension " frauds". The open sesame to the favor of the Cleveland Admin istration is supposed to be the dis covery that some old soldier is get ting $3 a month when he ought, by a strict construction of the law, to have only $2.75, or that the veteran with the broken or palsied arm is not entitled to any pension at all, because he is able to grind a hand organ with the hand that is not af flicted. Hoke Smith, the representa tive of the state in which Sherman started on his magnificent march, has ruled in substance that as long as the disabled soldier is able to earn a living he is not entitled to a pen sion. The living may be earned by blacking boots on the street corner, or parading Broadway as an adver tising sandwich, or peddling shoe laces ; but as long as the soldier can perform some labor there is no help for him in the way of a pension, the Georgia Secretary of the Interior declares. Hand in hand with the Southern Bourbons in the assault on the vet erans are the men who were too cow ardly and the men who were too dis loyal to do any fighting themselves. These view the Union soldier with equal jealousy and hate jealousy of his courage and hate because he has disappointed their hopes and predic tions. This class of critics is just now largely in evidence. They claim to be unearthing fraud when they are simply gratifying their malice. Their pretenses deceive nobody. The peo ple understand them and despise them. The popular heart is with the men who fought for the life of the Republic. Patriotism is as strong as ever in the ranks of real Americans, and those who are counting on pop ular sympathy in their attack upon the Union veterans are only inviting contempt and detestation. New lork Press. A partial canvass of the next Con gress reveals the secret of the admin istration's reluctance to call it to gether. A majority of the Democrat ic members who expressed an opinion favored the repeal of the silver pur chase law onlv on condition that a more radical free silver measure be substituted. That is why the Presi dent urges the people to study and reflect, hoping that the stress of financial circumstances shall lead the public to force the members of Congress into action which the ad ministration feels powerless to bring about. -t- Miss Francis E.

The Dunkards, a branch of the Baptists having a considerable mem bership in the state of Pennsylvania, held their annual assembly at Dixie, Pa., recently. Some of the sessions of tiie assembly were enlivened by debates over several curious and im portant questions of church govern ment and discipline. An effort was made to reconcile the "elder" with the "younger" branch of the denomi nation, but failed because the latter hold of Sunday schools, church enter tainments and the like, which the former regard as sinful. It was re solved by the assembly that the preachers should wear the prescribed costume and should cut off the hair on top of the head but let it grow behind. The question as to side- whiskers was left to the congrega tions, but the preachers are forbidden to wear moustaches as the custom partakes too much of vanity. The indulgence in candy and other luxur ies, Sunday, was prohibited. The question of magic lanterns and pic tures was also brought into consid eration. One of the bretheren de clared that he had destroyed all the photographs of his deceased relatives as the Bible forbids the worship of images. A committee was formed to inves tigate these questions in the Scrip tures, and to report at the next annual meeting. Secret societies were condemned as the misbegotten on- spring of the devil, and life and fire insurance as a sin against the law of Ood. INDUSTRY AND PROSPERITY. The Mennonite farmers from Russia who settled in Manitoba eighteen years ago, and were given a start in life through a loan of $ 90,400, advanced by the Canadian government, have now paid the last dollar of the loan and also the full interest charge, amounting to $33,980 more total, l.'50,yy(J. These farmers were in vited to come to Canada by agents sent to liussia by tlie government The first who came brought sufficient money with them, but those who came later needed assistance, and the loan from the government was obtained through the pledging of their farms by the thrifty Mennonite settlers already on the ground These people have not been called upon to aid in the liquidation of the loan, the direct beneficiaries having paid their own debts. The Mennon ites are otherwise known as Russian Presbyterians. They have demon strated that prosperity can be at tained even in Canada by thrift and hard work. We of Vermont ought to learn some thing from Pennsylvania. The Penn sylvania Legislature has passed a compulsory education bill, and has enacted that text-books shall be free in all the public schools in the State The demand of the Knights of Labor that the last bars shall be removed which keep the children of the poor est from the public schools, doubtless influenced the vote in the Legislature on the free text-book bill. The House of Representatives of the same State has passed a graduated inheritance tax bill, with a rate rising from one to five per cent., according to the size of the estate. Estates under $50,000 are exempt. The vote by which this bill was carried was 10G to 43. Penn sylvania has been considered the most conservative of Northern States but these three measures would make a pretty good week's record for any Legislature in the far West. St. Johnsbury Republican. A noticeable change has recently taken place in the writing of names. Formerly only the initial of the middle name was given. Now it must be written in full. A lady's name is always preceded by the Miss or Mrs., and if the oldest daughter is referred to, only the last name fol lows. An exchange remarks that the home-grown, hand-spanked, ragged, barefooted country boy makes a better tight in the battle of life, than does the pampered, well-clothed, daintily-fed city boy, the sent of whose pants is dusted with a golden slipper. People who patronize strangers and agents whom they do not know, ought to be skinned. They deserve no sympathy. Patronize your own home dealers. The Columbus two-cent stamped envelope is a beauty.

This fault has leeu particularly not ica ble in the southern tomatoes, which dur ing the past few weeks have been arriving In goodly amounts. Growers had evidently rushed their tomatoes to market before maturity was reached, and when these were unloaded at Hoston a large propor tion were entirely green and so small that It is doubtful if they would ever become fit for eating. Some of tlie prics now current are: Old beets, f 1.75 to ti a box; new beets by tho bunch, t. 75 a dozen; new flat turnips, ti tn 1 a dozen bunclips; parsnips scarce, nt 75 cents a box; parsley, t'2 to W-2.50 a box; dandelions aro hardly worth bringing to market, and bring about 25 cents a bushel. Kale is worth about tlie same; lettuce has taken a drop and now brings $1 to l.rl a box; raddislies from 2 to 3 cents a bunch; good cucum!ers bring 0 to 7 cents H piece while seconds are hard to sell at nny price. The best Anmstook and Iloulton pota toes are now worth ?1.10 to $1.15 a bushel, with whit stars between 83 and 1)5 cents, nutter. The butter dealer are biding their time and waiting to see tho bottom of tho mar ket. Then there will bo heavy buying for cold storage. Today tlie best northern butter cost 21 cents a pound, with Ver mont dairy 20 cents. These prices knowing ones believe are not the bottom, and there fore they will not take more than is neces sary for actual business at these quota tions. Strawberries continue to le tlie feature of the fruit trade. In price they range all tlie way from 6 cents up to 20 cents a basket. A few cherries are arriving from North Car olina and sell by tlu crate at fct.5'( to t. Rlueberrics from the sa-nn st itabrin f l'J to 1(1 cents a box. Poultry. Poultry dealers are counting their chickens and hoping that the hotel se'ison will soon opeu. As yet their business is very dull. Turkey is worth 14 to IS cents; broilers, 30 cents; Northern capons, 20 cents, ami chickens, 20 cents. The Quotation. Potatoes The supply of new potatoes Is full, and good brinit full prices, but there are a (rood many off lots on the market that have to be sold at f'i.tJ ."i0 iter bid.
