' MORRISVIULE and HVDE PARK Thursday, August 31, 1893. I. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. The protective laws which keep fac tory doors open and factory chim neys smoking should not be dis turbed. OCr . Anarchists don't like the United States, and certainly the United States don't like them. This being the case, why don't the knights of the red flag "git." We now have money made of gold, Bilver, nickel, copper and paper. Pef fer, the much-whiskered Populist Senator from Kansas, wants to in troduce aluminum, which is extract ed from clay. The lower house of congress has voted to repeal the silver purchasing clause of the Sherman bill. The vote was taken Monday and was yeas 240, nays 110, a much larger majority than many expected. Traveling men feel the effects of the depressed times about as much as any one. Merchants generally are curtailing their business expenses and buy as little as possible. There will be a re-action we hope by-and-by that will again make business lively "all along the line." Senator Hill, of Isew York, showed his true character last Wednesday, when he joined hands with the much whiskered Populist Peffer in support of a resolution which could only serve to heighten financial distrust at a critical time, and which cast un- just reflections upon the national banks. It showed the peanut politi cian in bis true light. Again we say don't hoard your money. The people who are doiDg this are aiding largely in creating the hard times. If you have money saved put it in some first-class bank where it will draw interest, unless you owe your neighbor. In the lat ter event you should pay promptly, and thus do your share in helping to keep the dollar rolling. The difference in value between gold and silver dollars to-day is more than forty cents,the silver dollar being worth over forty cents less than the gold dollar. The silver men ask the Government to put the dollar stamp on less than sixty cents worth of silver. It won't do, as Congress has very emphatically said by its recent vote on the Sherman bill and the ratio amendments. The Anarchists, who are now ex citiDg attention by their demonstra tions in New York city, are as mild as Jambs and easily controlled by the police. Still they represent a vol cano which may break forth at any time into fury such as was witnessed at Chicago in the fearful Anarchists' riots there. The New York Anar chists are an equally bad lot, and they are not to be trusted. The "solid south " is on top again, and no mistake. With less than a third of the population, less than a quarter of the business, commerce or wealth, it receives at the hand of Speaker Crisp the control of thirty one committees, while two-thirds of the people, and more than three quarters of the business, commerce and wealth, have charge of only twenty-three committees. Well, "what is Crisp there for, if not to help his friends?" Vermont's honored Senator, Jus tin S. Morrill, with the weight of con viction which his venerable years and long experience in public affairs confer, stated a sound proposition tersely in his speech before the Senate last week on the silver purchase re peal bill when hesaid, "Sound money cheats nobody." This is a saying which has struck a popular chord and we shall be greatly mistaken if this utterance is not frequently quoted in after years. The Washington Post's corres pondent, "Capitol Cheat," after commenting upon Senator Morrill's recent speech on thesilver bill, speaks as follows concerning Judge Powers : The representative of the maple sugar state who voiced its financial views in the other House, Judge Powers, looks every inch the title which is given him at home. He has the round, substantial, conservative face of on old-time British tory, and his oratory is as substantial as his physique. Most of his speech was carefully read from copy in a clerkly hand, with every word and sentence accurately weighed with New En gland caution and precision. Hav ing finished his task, the Vermont legislator unbuttoned his frock coat with the satisfied air following a duty well done, and stepped out to refresh himself upon the strongest beverage Vermonters are supposed to indulge themselves in to wit, water. A Young Man of 83. If anybody can discover in the speech of Senator Morrill a sign of the 83 vears that weigh upon him, beyond the evidence given ot a rare accumulated experi ence, he will be a verv acute individ ual. The venerable Vermont states man is still able apparently to dis cuss public questions with the virility of a man of 50. Springfield Repub lican. The Money of the World. Acting Director of the Mint Preston has prepared a table of the monetary systems' approximate stocks of money in the aggregate and per cap ita in the principal countries of the world, lhis table shows that the aggregate stock of gold is $3,582,- 603,000; silver, $4,043,700,000; un covered paper, $2,034,873,000. The stock of gold possessed by the prin cipal countries is given as follows: United States, $004,000,000; Great Britain, $550,000,000; France, $800,000,000; Germany, $000,000, 000; Russia, $250,000,000. The silver stock of these same countries is: United States, $015,000,000; Great Britain, $100,000,000 ; France, $700,000,000; Germany, $211,000, 000; Russia, $00,000,000. This stock of silver is divided by Mr. Pres ton as follows: United States, $538, 600,000 full tender and $77,000,000 limited tender; Great Britain, no sil ver full tender, $100,000,000 limited tender; France, $050,000,000 full tender and $108,000,000 limited ten der; Russia, $22,000,000 full tender and $38,000,000 limited tender. j A Kansas Idea. A patriot named George W. Cun ningham, of Arkansas City, Kansas, has matured a panacea for all na tional ills. He had printed a circular of his views and sent copies through the mails to newspapers and public men accompanied with a blank pe tition to Congress, w hich he wished signed aud forwarded to Washing ton. The plan is to set to work all the unemployed in the country on the public roads and public works. The government shall issue its legal tender notes to pay them, and when the total indebtedness amounts to $50 per capita, then a direct tax share be levied on all persons who may be worth over $500. This is certainly a very pretty scheme on the part of Cunningham, and shows that he has the welfare of his fellow citizens at heart, but statesmen will be inclined to doubt its practicability. Mr. Cunningham is also opposed to gold and silver be ing coined as money, preferring that it be refined, weighed and stamped for private use and sale. This may commend itself to senators and rep resentatives as a way out of the present dilemma, for the silver sena tors when they see defeat in store for them may join with Cunningham and stop the coinage of gold as well as silver. That his ideas may not be wholly opposed he urges the re peal of the Sherman law and favors the establishment of Postal Savings banks. But to return to the public road scheme. It would not be a bad idea for a rich government like ours to inaugurate improvement of the high ways. Mr. Cunningham's plan would create a greater national debt than that of the War of the Rebellion, to be paid at one time as soorx .as the limit of $50 per capita was ? eaclied. Of course how long the collection of the tax would be delayed depends entirely on the extent of the depres sion now existing in these Cleveland times, but a day of reckoning would come. If Cunningham would bring about hit millennium he must pro vide for payment from year to year from the receipts of the Treasury. Wild Talk In Kansas. Kansas is full of secession talk and wild and inflammatory utterances that recall the days inmediately pre ceding the war of the Rebellion. Political spouters like Governor Waite, of Colorado, are exciting the people and producing a state of af fairs which may end in something serious. A petition has been signed by all the state officers asking Gov. Stone, of Missouri, to call a conven tion of the Governors and such depu ties as they may select of all the states west of the Mississippi and south of the Ohio, and on a parallel line therewith, to consider such trade arrangements as may render this section "free of dependence upon the eastern section of the United States in business affairs." Such a position as the above is but a 6tep from a demand for politi cal independence, and it is stated that while not formulated in exact language, the talk about the Kansas State House is of actual political si pa ration between the West and the East. What these incendiary speeches may lead to, no one can foretell. In ordinary times they would only excite the laughter and derision of every one, but when ad dressed to a community which is suffering under the distress which is prevailing everywhere, and to an army of men who are without the means of a livelihood, or the pros pect of one, the language may excite to a most perilous extent. It is easy to make those who are in actual want throughout the west and south believe that the people of the east are responsible tor their misfortunes, and when they are once wrought up to lead them to the commission of the wildest acts. The sensible and sober-minded citi zens of the west and south can have no sympathy with such utterances and actions, and upon them must rest the task of meeting the agita tion of these fanatics, and keeping the mass of the people from being ex cited and inflamed by their revolu tionary utterances. The Evarts Golden Wedding. Hon. Vm. M. Evarts and wife celebrate their golden wedding at Windsor Wednesday of this week. The occasion will be a very happy one, not only to the immediate fam ily, but to the large number of per sonal and political friends who are expected to be present. Mr. Evarts and Miss V ardner became acquaint ed when he was at college and she a miss of sixteen, but it was not till he had reached the age of twrenty-five that he had attained the profession al success that warranted marriage. Their "old-fashioned" family in point of numbers they have succeed ed in educating and rearing to lives of honor and usefulness. Mr. Evarts' career has been one of rare distinction in the ranks of Amer ican jurists and statesmen. In his younger years he won a front place in his profession and became promi nent as an orator at public meetings. From 1849 to 1853 he was assistant district attorney in New York city; in 1860 he was chairman of the New York delegation to the Republican national convention at Chicago, and proposed the name of William H. Seward for the presidency. In-1861 he and Mr. Greeley were rival candi dates for the United States Senator ship, but Mr. Evarts withdrew in fa vor of Ira Harrison, who was elect ed. In 1868 he was President John son's chief counsel in the impeach ment trial before the Senate,, and during the last eight months of Johnson's administration he held the position of Attorney-General in the Cabinet. He was appointed Sec retary of State by President Hayes in 1877 and filled the position with great ability during the full term of four years. In 1875 he was senior counsel for the defense in the great Beecher trial in Brooklyn. In 1885 he was chosen to the United States Senate for a full term of six years. Since his retirement from the Senate he has been active in the practice of his profession. In all positions which he has filled Mr. Evarts' career has been marked by an excep tionally high order of ability, great learning, patriotic devotion to his country's welfare, and undeviating integrity. That he and his esteemed wife have been spared to round out their career with a golden wedding is a fact that calls for universal con gratulation. To the Junk Shop. The beautiful white buildings of the World's Fair will have to be sold as junk when the show is over. They are soon to be advertised and knocked down to the highest bidder. About the only things in future use in them are the iron and steel arches and timbers. It is thought that not more than $1,000,000 can be realized from the auction. The most expensive build ing will probably bring the least money. The manufactures and the liberal arts building, which cost $1, 600,000, will probably go to the man who will tear it down and carry away the debris. The magnitude of the undertaking will be realized when it is stated that each arch con tains 20 carloads ot steel, all the pieces being riveted together. This naner and the New York Weekly Tribune one year for $1.75. WOLCOTT. Quite a number of people attended For paugh's show at Hnrdwick on Monday. Andrew Eaton of Syracuse, N.

Everything was quiet and orderly, and the extra police looked alter things in good shape and no arrests were made. The afternoon performance was good, but the evening session was cut short and wound up in a pouring rain. WATER V1LLE. Mrs. Hodgkins of Boston, is the guest of tnauncey 1 Ulotson.

A. Demeritt received a telegram last week Monday announcing the death of his dauirh- ter-in-law, Mrs. B. N. Demeritt. which occur red at her home in Plattsbureh. N. Y.. Auc 19. He, with his son Albin of Johnson, at tended fuueral services, which were held at her old home, Waterbury Centre, AugUBt 22. her remains having been brought there for interment. Her death was very sudden and unexpected : her health, ever delicate, seemed better the past season than for months pre vious. So quietly did her summons come that it was hours before the physician, who was quickly summoned, pronounced all efforts to bring her to consciousness unavailing. It was evident that it must have been a shock of paralysis. The deceased was the dauirh ter of O. W. and Komelia Stearns of Water- bury, where her life, with the exception of the past t hree years has been Bpent. In Novem ber, 1875, she married K. N. Demeritt, then of Waterbury, but now of Plattsbureh. where he is engaged in business in the firm of liromley & Demeritt, Wholesale Bakers and Confectioners, and whither he purchased and moved so as to be near his business. Her death was a sad blow to her husband and three manly sons. Homer, Henry and Ray, to whom she hns ever been a devoted wife and tender mother. She leaves besides these. a widowed mother, with whom resides an uged aunt, in Waterbury; a sister, Mrs. Came Lyon, of the same place, who for u few year was associated with her husband on the stan ot omcers at tue Vermont. Keform school at Vergennes; and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss, as all were deeply attached to her; at her death she was about 40 yeais old. As a young lady, she was wiusome, ana in later lite she became a very estimable, accomplished and worthy lady, fitted to adorn any circle in which she moved, anil, though she felt herself inefficient, others knew her worth. Early in life she became a Christian, uniting with the church of her choice, of which she remained a con sistent member until her decease. The writer has known her intimately since childhood, and rarely do we Una one who has been held in such high esteem, for she was widely known among her circle of friends. We hope to greet her in a fairer clime, on a fairer shore, with the other loved ones so recently gone, to be parted nevermore. The daily attendance at the World's Fair has been steadily growing during August, and it has now reached over 240,000 paid admissions. At this rate the fi nancial condition of the fair has rapidly improved, and the indebted ness will no doubt soon be paid off. But notwithstanding the increased receipts the stockholders and other contributors are not likely to realize a large return on their investment. The cost of the big fair was too great. The motto of the proprietors of Dr, Henry Baxter's Mandrake Bitters is, "the greatest good to the greatest number," and so sell a large bottle of a valuable remedy for the small price of 25 cents, and warrant every bottle to give satisfaction or money refunded, j THE ELECTRIC ROAD. ItEPORT OP THE COMMITTEE SENT TO VIEW THE r.OCKLAXn, ME., LINE. Editor News and Citizen : You are aware that on the 12th of August last a town meeting was call ed in Morristown to consider the ad visability of the town giving aid to a company which might construct an electric railway from Stowe to Mor risville, and that upon calling the meeting to order it was apparent that but few, it any, considered them selves well enough informed on the subject to wish, at that time, to put themselves on record either for or against the project. The meeting therefore adjourned three weeks to give the voters a chance to better in form themselves. Alter the meeting was adjourned it was thought by some of the Morris town people that it would be well if a delegation from Morristown could visit some electric road in practical operation and leurn from observa tion all they could upon those points which would enable the voters to de termine whether they considered the construction of the road of sufficient benefit to the town to warrant the town to give aid. For want of funds the number was finally reduced to three. Those who contributed to the funds wished a road in Kockland, Me., nearly 200 miles distant, to be visited, and after a good deal of talk they chose the undersigned. Two gentlemen from Stowe, Messrs. Pike and Burt, joined the party at Morrisville for the same purpose, but as we do not wish to represent them, ha ving no authority, we shall leave them to state their own views, but wish to say that all worked in harmony and that their suggestions and company was to us more than agreeable. We arrived in Rockland Wednes day. Aug. 23, about 11 a. m. We at once found the President of the road, Mr. Shepard, one of the Directors, Mr. Crockett, and the Superintend ent, Mr. Weston. These gentlemen were pleasant men to meet and read ily offered to show or explain to us anything we might want to know in regard to the road. We found this electric road, in its longest continu ous line, to be eight miles, beginning at Rockland, passing through Rock port, and ending at Camden. The most of the business done by this road is carrying passengers, yet they run a baggage or freight car once a day each way. Passenger cars are run every half-hour each way. The gauge of this road is the same as steam roads and they use the same kind of rail as steam roads, but of a lighter weight. The passenger cars used in the summer are the open car similar to those used on all street railroads. Freight cars used are somewhat like steam freight cars, but lighter in construction. They are run by the trolley system, or wire over head. This road is connected with the Maine Central and steam freight cars can be taken from this to the electric, but did not understand that they do this very much, but have in some cases. This road is run in the highway; through the city of Rockland it is run in the center of the road, but the rest of the way the rails were laid on one side. The passenger cars will carry comfortably about 40 people, but the day we were there we saw as many as 70 passengers on one car. The cars started with apparent ease and were stopped with brakes operated as on steam cars, and the motor-man seems to have full control of his car. The road was sometimes raised a little above the highway, but nowhere was it sunk below, making it practically correct to Bay that the grade of the road was the same as that of the highway. The Superintendent of the road in forms ua that the (sharpest errade on the road is SJ4 per cent., which, as we understand it, means a trine more than one inch in going twelve inches, or 8 feet in going 100 feet. The highest rate of speed, that we. were intormed of, over this road was six teen miles an hour for the whole distance traveled, and the next high est not quite twelve over the route from Rockland to Camden with the mail, but the average rate of speed with passenger cars was from eight to nine miles, including stops; but we were satisfied that if this road could apply as many horse power to their drawing cars as the steam roads apply through their engines, and the wheels of the drawing cars do not slip on the rails, the electric can draw the local traffic over a road from Stowe to Morrisville on sub stantially the same grade of our public highwaj-s. We base this opin ion upon the known fact that when driving-wheels of engines are so ar ranged as not to slip, they are able to rise very steep grades. From the top of these cars to the wire overhead was a devise with a grooved pulley in which the wire laid, and in the night, when the car was in motion, there would be occasional flashes of a pale blue color, which would light the surroundings, for an instant, quite light. With regard to frightening horses the testimony seemed to be that there was no ma terial difference from steam roads, but, as we saw it, we think the liabil ity to accidents of this kind less on this road than on steam roads, if ttiey always do as they did when we were aboard stopping the car to let a frightened horse go by. This road is tree troni danger of tires from passing cars; free from the annoyance of smoke, or whistling, or the ringing of bells; comparatively still in the passage of cars over the road. We believe the people of Rockland, Rockport and Camden would no more have the service of this road discontinued than we would have the service of our railroad discontinued. The power house is situated on the line, about two miles from Rockland, and the electric cur rent is made by two powerful engines. They not only furnish electricity to run the cars, but light thecity of Rock land and all the villages in that vicin ity, and furnish power for other pur poses. This road has been in opera tion about one year, and we were told by the President of the road that there had been but one accident, and that, of a woman breaking her arm by jumping from a carriage, the horse becoming frightened at the cars, when, if she had remained in the carriage, she would have received no injury. These passenger cars ride very nicely, although the road is quite uneven in places, and there are many sharp curves. The sidings to this road are fcimilar to those on steam roads. We were told that the electric road took care of the snow in the winter so that the travel ing public was not inconvenienced. This road crossed but one bridge used by the public, and Mr. Shepard informed one of the party that it cost $ .'1,000 to strengthen the bridge so that they were willing to pass over it. We learned that the town was asked, and did vote the road the right to lay the track in the limits of the public highway; and, while we were told that there were many who were opposed to the scheme in the start, we failed to find a single in stance where they condemn the road to-day. We have given the facts as we un derstand them, but we wish every voter in town to voteon theauestion of giving aid to the road, as thev shall judge the best interests of the town demand. In conclusion we wish to return our thanks to Mr. Blossom, Superintend- j onl of our road, for the courtesy and aid extended to us on this trip; also to the managers of the electric road, Messrs. Shepard, Crocket and Wes ton of Rockland, Maine, who gave us so hearty a welcome and rendered us so much aid in obtaining the facts for which we went. A. 15. Smith. Frank Kenfielh. F. E. Bingham.

New apples, early grapes, pears nnd peaches, are occupying the attention of the dealers. The drought has nearly driven thj wild berry out of the market, a very few Massachusetts and New Hampshire blueberries being left These go at 11 cents per quart.
