FOR REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS FIR8T DISTHICT, H. HENRY POWERS, of Morrisville. SECOND DISTRICT. WILLIAM W. GROUT, of Barton. The Stata Ticket. As was long ago predicted the State convention last week placed at the bead of the Republican ticket Urban A. Woodbury of Burlington. That the convention made a wise choice is admitted by all. Mr. Woodbury is a progressive Vermonter. Early in the sixties he enlisted in the war for the Union and after a faithful service there, giving his right arm to the na tion, he returned to Vermont and ever since has been identified with everything pertaining to the growth and development of our State. Suc cessful in his private business he has not, as is very frequently the case, hoarded his money, but has given liberally to numerous enterprises, which but for this financial aid and his personal assistance would have been failures. In all of the various public positions to which he has been called he has served faithfully and well, and in the position which he will soon occupy, the highest in the State, will he make a successful and honorable record. While not a na tive of this county, yet here where he epent his boyhood days and early manhood is he held in high regard, and as a manifestation of this es teem "Spunky Lamoille" will roll up an old time majority for him in September next. For the second place on the ticket the honor is conferred upon one who is a man of ability, integrity and upright Christian character. Zophar M. Mansur of . Island Pond, jiKe vol. vooaoury, wnen out a youth entered the army and he, too, laid an arm upon the nation's altar, Returning home he hna devoted his time to various callings, and in all of them has rendered a faithful and true account of his stewardship. Ex perience in both the House and Sen ate especially fits him for the second place in the State's official list. The remaining offices, Secretary of State, Treasurer and Auditor, are all filled by men of ability and charac ter, and in the re-nomination of each of theee, Messrs. Brownell, Field and Hale, have the Republicans shown wise and excellent judgment. An ex ceptioually etroDg ticket is placed in the field, and there is not the least doubt but that every county in the State will give it a rousing vote, and a majority equal to if not exceeding that in 1888, when it gave the ticket 28,000 majority, may be expected. The attempt on the part of a few at the recent State convention to be little a candidate because he hap pened to come from a county in which another state officer resided, was emphatically squelched, as it ought to be. If the best men for the entire State ticket all live in the same coun ty we see no reason why they should not be selected. We do not believe location should have first considera- tionit should be the man first, loca tion afterwards. In this connection we wish to express dur disapproval of the so-called mountain rule. The custom of see-sawing back and forth over the mountains is ridiculous Pick the best men, no matter in what portion of the State they may hap pen to reside, and the ticket will be stronger and better. Tne "uurnngtoo umiy iNews'" is the name of Burlington's new eve ping daily. It made its first appear ance Saturday evening:. It is an at tractive six-column . folio, well edited and containing a good grist of local and miscellaneous news. Joseph Auld, formerly of the Free Press, Is at the head of it. It is worthy of,, and Will doubtless receive, a liberal pat ronage. .. That summer has come in earnest To le sure Lamoille couuty is highly prat ifiVd with the unanimous re-noniiout ion pi ven her distinguished eon, II. Henry Power?, (or Congress. The Ju lg if known up and down the State as a faithful aud efliiient representative and during the time already served in Congress has won an enviable reputation. He is re garded by the House as a strong member aud the fact that he is the only New England representative given a potitiou upon the Judiciary Committee one of the most impor tant in Congress shows that his legal ability is appreciated by that body. No district in the Union is better represented in Congress than the first Vermont. The re-nomination of Gen. Grout for member of Congress from the 2nd district was a foregone conclusion. Gen. Grout has served his district well and faithfully and has kept an eye out for all interests pertaining to the State's welfare. This is his 6ixth nomination from the second district, and adding to this one term served from the old third, the General breaks the record, being the first member of Congress from this State who has had seven nominations or Berved over twelve years in that body. The St. Johnsbury Republican thus early takes a step in the right direc tion in its advocacy of free text books. This matter, which has been before the Legislature several times, had strong support at the last ses sion and ought to become a law this fall. , Vermont usually leads in edu cational matters, but in this direc tion it is slow. She will come to it, however, sooner or later. Col. Woodbury's allusion in his peech before the convention last week that thirty-three years ago that very day he enlisted in the war for the Union, elicited a round of hearty applause. It was a very pleasant observance of the anniversary of that event not only to the Colonel himself but to all patriotic Ver- monters. The Brattleboro Reformer suggests . A. Bullard of Underhill for chair man of the Democratic State commit tee. "Vern"is a Lamoille county boy, ful! of pluck and activity, and mierht infuse some new life into the Democracy although we must con fess that just now this is a pretty difficult job. The Lexow police investigation now going on in JNew lort attracts attention from all parts of the United States. The powerful hold Tammany has upon that city is astonishing. It is estimated that $ 15,350,000 a year i paid to Tammany to buy protec tion from the New York police. We publish elsewhere an article on 'French Governments" from a late issue of tbe lontn s companion, which is especially interesting now that all eyes of the civilized world bave been directed to that country by the recent murder of its President. Lamoille county was well repre sented at the State convention last week. Twenty-six of the twenty- eight delegates allotted to the county were present, and a more dignified and better looking body of men than these were not present. Just a trifle early to mention it, but we venture the assertion, never theless, that Col. Woodbury's succes sor in 1890 will be a farmer and sol dier combined and Josiah Grout will be his name. The Treasury gold reserve is down to ?67,000,000,whichis $33,000,000 less than the figures at which the Re publican party when in power main tained it, and below which it should not fall. It is now thought that the tariff bill will be through the Senate in a few days. The contest will then be transferred to the House and to the Committee of Conference. Homer W. Vall's canvass for the Lieut. Governorship was a clean one throughout. He failed to receive the nomination but has to-day more friends tlran ever before. A tariff which robs the millions of farmers and workingmen in ol der to enrich a few monopolies like the sugar trust Is not what the country wants . , , , ,. . . . . i No danger of a quarrel in the Dem ocratic caucus In the Oregon Ilquse.

Marie Francois Sadi-Carnot. who was eliTted President of the French llepublic in DetfmWr, 18H7, was ansiiibinatpd Sundrty evening iu Lvons tiv un Italian Anarchist, (,e- sare Giovanni Santo. l'rwident Car not arrived in Lyon Saturday to visit the exhibition of atts. sciences and industries, anil inteuded to re main over Tuesday. He was ncvompunied by Gen. Bor- lus, cruet of his military household, most of his other household omCinlH, Preaiier Dupuy, M. Burdeuu aud other members of the cabinet. He was received enthusiastically at the station by the mayor. filtering crowds tilled the street, and gave the President such a welcome as he had seldom received. There was a lunch eon at the hotel, and in the evening a dinner at the prefecture. From the balcony of the prefecture the Presi dent reviewed a large thorc'jliiiht procession, which was followed by fireworks and illumination. Sunday the President and his party paid a state visit to the exhibition. Alterward the President held a recep tion at tbe prefecture. He planned to go to the Grand Theatre, on the place de la Comedie, in the evening. President Carnot had already en tered his carriage when the attack was made upon him by Santo. He had partaken of refreshments at the Chamber of Commerce, and the pro cession which had escorted him from the exhibition had been re-formed in the Place Des Crodeliers and had started for the Grand Theater, where a gala performance had been arrang ed in his honor. The carriage had hardly more than started along the Rue de la Repub lique amid the acclamations of the thousands of spectators and Presi dent Carnot was acknowledging the enthusiastic greetings of the people. In front of thetreditLyonnaisa man suddenly ran forward tothecarringe, jumped to the step and stabbed the President to the heart with a dagger, which he had. concealed under his coat. An eye-witness who was walk ing abreast of the President's car riage with Adrien Dupuy, the Prem ier's brother, says that as the Presi dent's carriage approached the Credit Lyonnais his own attention was at tracted by a great disturbance in the front line of the crowd. He then saw the carriage stop. The President had fallen back against the cushion and his face had become livid. An outcry was raised at once,. Hundreds shout ed that an attempt upon the Presi dent's life had been made and the crowd seemed suddenly to go mad with excitement. Meanwhile the as sassin had been felled to the ground witn a blow by M. Rivaud, prefect of the Khone. Ue was surrounded by an angry crowd and cries of "lynch him" were heard on all sides. It was only with the greatest difficulty that the police were able to protect him from the fury of the people. In fact, had not a number of mounted guards surrounded and protected the police on their way to the station, the pris oner would have been taken from them and beaten to death. At 11:30 Sunday evening the sur geons at the prefecture issued this bulletin : "Tho President's condition is alarming, but not hopeless. The wound is in the region of the liver. The hemorrhage, which at first was very copious, has now ceased." , A little more than an hourlatar the President was dead. President Carnot is the first ruler of France who has fallen by the as sassin's hand for nearly three centu ries. The murder of King Charles IV by Francois Ravaillac in 1610 was the last instance of regicide in that country. Curiously enough, the cir cumstances of this earlier case very closely resemble those of the murder of President Carnot. In both crimes the weapon used was a knife, Ravail lac, like Santo, jumping on the step of the carriage to strike a deadly blow at hU victim. THE PRESIDENT'S CAREER. Marie Francois Sadi-Carnot, fourth President of the French republic was born at Limoges, France, August 11, 183 i . He was the eldest son of ex- Minister Ilippolyte Sadi-Carnot, of 1817, who died in 1888, and was the grandson of Lazare Carnot, known as t he organizer of victory. Ine late President was an engineer by profession and entered the Ecole Poly technique in loot. In 1871 he was appointed prefect of the depart ment of the Seine-Inferieure. He was elected representative from the Cote- d Or to the national academy iebru ary 8 following. In 187G M. Carnot was elected a member of the chamber of deputies. In 1878 be was appoint ed under secretary of state of the ministry of public works in the Dii- fore ministry. For several years he held a cabinet position and in I880 he became minister of finance. He retained that position in the cabinet reconstructed by M. Freycinet in January, 1887. He was elected Pres ident of the republic on December d, 1887, and his term would have ex pired December 1 next. It begins to look as though the next bouseof representatives might be minus a Breckinridge. The hot op position to W. C. P. Breckinridge of Kentucky makes his renomination bv the Democrats exceedingly doubt ful. While Clifton It. Breckinridge of Arkansas has sustained an over whelming defeat in bis canvafs, and Judge Little, his competitor, will be put up by the Democrats. The blood John M. Clayton, Breckin ridge's murdered Republican oppo nent, still calls from the ground of - H' The State Convention. After the unanimous nomination of U. A. Woodbury for Governor and the Bpirited contest for wound posi tion which resulted in the choice of Z. M. Mansur, the remainder of the State ticket was nominated by ac clamation, it being C. W. Brownell for Secretary ol State, Henry F.Field fur State Treasurer and Franklin D. Hale lor State Acditor. Col. Mansur was conducted to the platform and made a short speech, in excellent taste, accepting the nomination and thanking the delegates. Chairman Powers then presented to the convention Congressman Grout, who, he said, would introduce l he orator of the occasion, Congress man W. I. Hepburn of Iowa. Gen. Grout epoke briefly, saying that Mr. Hepburn was a desceudent of both Matthew Lyon and Thomas Chitten den of this State, and introduced him to the audience.. Mr. Hepburn spoke 40 minutes upon the existing politi cal situation, and urged the impor tance of a heavy Republican vote in Vermont in September. His allusion to the gallant action of Gen. Stan nard and the Vermont troops at Gettysburg was enthusiastically ap plauded. A vote of thanksand three cheers were given Mr. Hepburn for his eloquent address. After tbe nomination and election of a State committee and the adop tion of the platform the convention adjourned. THE PLATFORM. We, the Republican of Vermont in conven tion assem bled, reaffirm our adherence to those principles which for more than ill) years have kept our country to the front iu the man-hot civilization. As the result of the temporary departure of the nation from those principles of government practiced by the Republican party, we point to the wide spread deprestdon and complete stagnation of business, the hundreds of thousands of unemployed workingmen, the silent facto ries and the distrust of the Democratic party, which is evident wherever the voice of voters is heard. We denounce as especially injurious to the State the provisions of the Wilson bill. We denounce the increase of the tax on the poor man's breakfast table, whitb is accom panied by a decrease in tbe tariff on articles of luxury. We denounce the Wileon bill es sectional in its provisions, subservient to gigantic munopolif s, a menace to business interests, and we predict that if it becomes a law, pros perity will not again return to our laud until the Republican party is again in power. We declare our beliet that the repeal of the Federal elections law was passed in the inter ests of the fraudulent election methods of the Democratic party. We approve the strenuous efforts of the Vermont Senators and Representatives' in Congress to render as harmless as possible the prospective tariff legislation. - We favor the continued and extended use of silver in our circulation within the extent and ability of the government to preserve the present parity between gold and silver. Tf this end we hail with enthusiasm all ef fJts of the government to obtain an agree jilt with all other commercial nations to sftfire the free coinngeol silver on any proper ryio. lu State affairs we promise a continuance of wise economy where economy is wise and where the best interests of t he State demand We pledge hearty and enthusiastic support to the candidates this day nominated. . We promise that we will uphold the bands 01 our gallant leaders in tne coming contest, as were tbe hands of Moses in the wilderness. intil victory is gained. (TlWe pledge ourselves to send out next Sep tember such greeting to our fellow Kepubli cans all over the land as will encourage them to bend their every energy to the practical elimination ot tne democratic purty as a factor in national politics.

Justice for American Industries. The more carefully tbe Democratic woolen schedule is examined the more thoroughly vicious it appears. An especially outrageous feature, to which the N. i. Tress has already al luded, is the section which reduces the duty on " wool of the sheep, hair of the camel, goat, alpaca or other like animals in the form of roving, roping or tops, to fifteen per cent, ad val orem. The Wilson bill as it passed the House, made these products duti able at 25 percent. That eminent foreign born expert in bankruptcy and business disaster, Jacob Schoep- hof, to whose hunds the tfourbon politicians in the Senate intrusted the framing of schedules involving hun dreds of millions of capital and the welfare of hundreds of thousands of operatives, refused to allow even the llouse rates to stand, and cut down the duty to 15 per cent. If the bill passes with this iniquitous provision in it, a large majority of American spinning plants will be permanently closed, their operatives will be turned adrift in poverrv and idleness, and their business will be transferred to Europe.

Woodbury, was nomi nated ty acclamation, without even a single person " mentioned " in op position to him, is something re markable and well indicates the es teem in which he is held and tells unmistakably of the warm place he has in the hearts of the people. No trace of the bitter contest of four years ago is left, but, contrary to the expectations of some, the friends of ex-Gov. Page all over the state have closed up in hearty support of Col. Woodbury. This is characteristic of Carroll S. Page and it is certain that a head and heart from Spunky La moille has had something to "do in reaching this happy result. Swanton Courier.

At the state convention Wednesday the son of the village carpenter was nominated as the republican candi date for Governor and at the First District convention yesterday the son of the village doctor was nomi nated as the Republican candidate for member of Congress. The son of the candidate for member of Con gress married a daughter of the can didate for Governor and presided at the State convention. Burlington Free Press. Fire losses in Vermont increased from $171,289.17 1892 to $503, 143.89 in 1893. Just across the river in New Hampshire on the other hand they decreased from $592,638. 40 in 1892, to $450,042.41 in 1893. As a consequence premium rates are going up in Vermont and down in New Hampshire, and the companies are running behind on their Vermont business and making a handsome profit in New Hampshire.
