Yvhat will the people do? and how strange it will seem when the news papers get back into normal condi tion and refrain from devoting half of the front page to big scare heads about th war. Most four months now that the eyes of the reading pub lic have found no need of spectacles in perusing the ordinary daily. The greatest proof of the fact that the National Encampment of the G. A. R., to be held at Cincinnati Sept. 5 to 10, will be one of the most nota ble in the history of the order, comes from the declaration of officials of the Grand Army that the preparations thus far excel any ever made by a city entertaining the encampment. ' The papers have been prepared in the suit being brought under the di rection of the Merchants' Associa tion of New York against the express companies for the purpose of testing in the broadest possible manner the question as to where the responsibil ity lies for the payment of the war tax on express receipts. In other words, whether shippers must pay for the one-cent stamp or the com panies. The railroads attach the one-cent stamp at their own expense, but the express companies shunt it on their patrons. The Spanish system is even more burdensome in Porto Rico than in Cuba. The revenues are expended almost wholly for Spanish purposes. In a recent annual budget, for in stance, pensions, interest on Spanish debt, and salaries of colonial officers living in Spain consumed $735,928. 80; the courts and expenses of the established Catholic church, $378, 740.50; increase of Spanish navy, $150,1G0.G6; public works, $272, 214.02; civil government, $719,315. 26; while Porto Rico had to contri bute $1,006,595.50 towards Spain's war expenses in Cuba and the Philip pines. Under American rule, Porto Rico, like Hawaii, will probably ex pend the entire revenue, raised from its people, on internal improvements and the maintenance of its institu tions. One of the results of the war with Spain, which has not yet entered largely into discussion, will be a ma terial extension of the pension roll The only people who seemed to have realized this are the pension attor neys, who are always on the lookout for anything that promises to in crease their incomes. No sooner was war declared than the pension attor neys bpgan to work, and they soon had their lines out everywhere so as to catch every dollar of profit which could possibly be made under the pension laws as they now stand. In formation has reached the pension bureau that attorneys have agents already in every regiment drumming up business, and applications have begun to come in which show that the work has been reduced to a sys tem. Spain's reply to the President's peace conditions has been received, and, while not yet made public, is said to be unsatisfactory to the Pres ident. The reply is understood to be a document embracing about 1200 words, and is said to be divided into flvenoints or heads, namely: Cuba. Porto Uieo. Ladrone Islands, occu pation of Manila and appointment of a commission, wnicn are treated in the order named. So fur as could be learned no mention is made of the Cuban debt. The retention of arms and ammunition by the Spanish troops comes in for indirect reference, under the head of Cuba. Lamoille County Court. County Court assembled at Hyde Park Monday afternoon,. Judge Start presiding, with all the lawyers, subor dinate officers, and spectators pres ent necessary to a proper starting of the tangled skein of legal intricacies. Business was resumed atthestopping point of several months ago. The first case to be called was that of E. R. Brush, executor of the will of Catherine Stinson, vs. Anna Turdy, an appeal from the allowance of the will. Mrs. Stinson died in January, '97, leaving an estate of about $2000. There are four natural heirs, two sons, a married daughter, and a grand-daughter. The grandchild, Anna, was left the sum of $10 only. Hence the attempt to have the will set aside. It appears that Mrs. Stin son made her will just the day before she deceased. The defense will at tempt to establish that Mrs. Stinson at the time she executed her will was mentally incapacitated, and, further, that she was unduly influenced by the other heirs. Bates & May of St. Johnsbury and Hulburd of Hyde Park appear for plaintiff ; Powers of Morris ville and Parker of Cambridge for de fendant. It was anticipated that it would require until Thursday to fin ish this case, but a telegram was re ceived Tuesday stating that an im portant witness subpeened from Bos ton was unable to be present because of sickness. The case was therefore continued. The jury empanelled to listen to and weigh the evidence presented was made up as follows : D. C. Walker, E. S. Wilkins, Bronson Willey. O. W. Adams, D. D. Morgan. C. A. Davis, J. C. Benson, F. L. Stafford, L. M. Jones, C. B. Terrill, M. S. Parker and O. N. Campbell. B. A. Hunt v. 0. G. Buck, Aplt., an action in assumpsit, was then com menced. The plaintiff is assisted by Powers & Cheney, while G. E. Mon teith conducts the defense. A jury ol twelve good men and true wasdra wn as follows: Jonas Harrington, G. W. Adams. Bronson W illey, O. V . Adams, M. 1'. Cheney, D. D. Morgan, C. A. Davis, M. S. Parker, C. B.' Richards, Frank L. Stafford, J. C. Benson, Ned F. Chaffee. BUIEFS. The State's Attorney will have some business to attend to before the cloi-e of the term. Miss Benham is officiating at the reporter's desk, where she is slinging the ink that records about every thing that transpires. The Sheriff and his corps of work ing deputies were on deck, ready to attend to all duties and bring into court, "dead or alive," anybody that is needed. Among the outside legal fraternity present, beside those already men tioned, were Guy Start of Bakers field, and C. D. Watson of St. Albans. Home talent was represented in full, with a harmonious blending of old and young. ; Though the resumption of business at an adjourned term is not accom panied by quite the eclat that goes with the opening day of a new term, still court has interest for outsiders, as was evidenced by the motly throng that filled the spectators seats. "Lieutenant Governor" Bates' easy way of probing each juryman in Lis search for ''bad spots" was very effective. It was not found necessary to call them all before a satisfactory jury was selected, but some of those first tallied off found there were "others." Campmeeting Next Week. Seems queer to think that camp meeting time has come around again so soon, but it's here. On the camp grounds to-day and to-morrow there will be held a "bee" to put things in ship shape about the grounds. The St. J. & L. C. railroad, which has been very courteous in making ex ceptionally low rates from all sta tions east and wpst to the grounds and return, during campmeeting, also furnished twenty passes for men to use in going over to attend this bee. As has been before stated, Rev. 0. M. Bout well will have charge of the meetings, Rev. John Ferguson of Lanark, (Jnt., will be present and participate, and Rev. A. W. Ford will again have charge of the singing. Rev. Mr. Stebbins of Woleott and the Woleott and North Woleott people, are now building or remodeling cot tages on the grounds. George II Terrill will "have an eye on the re freshment stand, run by the Associa tion, Mrs. H. Aller and Mrs. J. R Parker will be in charge of the board ing house, Elmer Wade will attend to the gate fees, and the President, Geo. A. Morse, will have a general oversight. The meetings open Mon day evening or Tuesday and will continue over the following Sunday. Combination Kicnrslon. The St. J. & L. C railroad, the Cen tral Vermont road and the manage ment of the steamer Reindeer -on Lake Champlain, announce an at tractive and verycheap excursion for all stations from St. Johnsbury to Burlington, thence by steamer to Pittsburgh, N. Y. It allows a stay 01 one nour and a hair in I'latts burgh. The round trip from Morris ville is $1.40 for adults, 86 cents for children. The regular express train eastand west will carry theexcursion. lhursday, the 18th, is the date. The Host Heineily For Flux. Mr. John Matlnus, a well known stock deal er of Pulaski, Ky., says: "After suffering for over a week with flux, and uiy physician hav ing failed to relieve me, I was advised to try Chaniherlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, and have the plonsura of stating that the half of one bottle cured me."

At a Republican county convention over in Maine the other day "Tom" Reed was presented and made a twenty minutes' address. He referred to his prediction two years ago that prosperity was us sure to come as the sunshine, and said : "Why is it we have not come into a full measure of prosperity ? The reason is plain. The Republican party has done its full duty up to the first part of April to start a revival of industrial prosperity. Then came, the preparation for war. Prosperity whs waiting for us nnd its coming was postponed. You and I know that when a nation seeH fit to go to war the war must be attended promptly and at once. The history of the Inst few months shows clearly that the war was at tended to promptly. The valor of our sol diers and the splendid ability of our naval forces have permitted us to rise above our enemies in a measure almost miraculous. The war has enriched our history by great events which may repay us for what wo have undergone. At the time when war seemed imminent, we were struggling toexportmany millions of tons of steel from ore dug from the bowels of the earth and manufactured by the skill and industry of our people. The years of adversity were not lost on us. When we were unable to manufacture pig iron and dispose of it at $12, we determined to make it for 9. W ith every industry it whs the siime what we used to make for a dollar we make now lor hall a d llar. " In the next period of prosperity we shall make for our own people ninny things the outside woild lurnished us !10 venrs ugo, tie fore republican ru e. Some critics complain that our revenues are not. now what shoul i he expected. Why is it that less revenue is produced than before? Because revenue conies fiom imports, no imports no tariff revenues. V'ou and 1 are making things now which England use to muke and sell to us. That is one problem we have got to meet in the future. Our very prosperity will have to deal with different! conditions thnu ever be fore. I nm confident, we will go forward in the same rule founded on the intelligence of the people." Fish and Game League. The third annual meeting of the Vermont Fish and Game league was attended Wednesday at the home of Lieiit.-Gov. Fiske on Isle La Motte by 300 members, their wives and in vited guests. Last year the meeting seemed to be a political storm centre but it is said that political matters were eschewed this year. Atr a bountiful dinner John W. Titeomb of St. Johnsbury, president, rapped to order. Mr. Titeomb spoke at some length upon subjectsof interesttothe club. He said that deer were increas ing in the state in spite of the open season in October, to which the club is opposed. Many deer are killed by dogs, and there is nothing to prevent a licensed dog from chasing deer. The evils of allowing seine Ashing in Lake Champlain and of catching small trout were also discussed. It had been the plan of the club not to have post-prandial exercises, but in response to repeated calls re marks were made by Senator Proctor, ex-Gov. Woodbury, Gov. Grout and Congressman Powers. JohnH.Flagg of New York, Admiral Dewey and Henry L. Dodge of San Francisco were elected honorary members of the club and 27 men living in the state were elected to membership. One Kesult of the War. One result of the war with Spain will be to enhance the value of Amer ican citizenship in the eyes of the world. Hereafter the American flag and the American citizen will be re spected as they never have been be fore. Among ull but the best educa ted and most traveled classes we have always had the reputation of being a nation of shopkeepers, shrewd, boast ful, vulgar, but of little account out side of commercial transactions. They know better now. Theextra ordinary, almost miraculous, suc cesses of our navy have riveted the the eyes of the world in admiration or in fear. The rapidity with which we have evolved an army of a quar ter million of men from a state of un preparedness has almost impressed the nations, while the brave fierce fighting of our raw levies before San tiago has been officially reported to every great power in Europe in words of unstinted praise. With the news of the terrible effect iveness of our army and navy have gone also the reports of the ease with fvhieh a great government loan has leen placed in sums less than $5,000 i with five times the amount of the de sired loan offered, but not accepted. More than all, the nations have been impressed with our magnanimi ty and generous treatment to our prisoners. The American citizen will hereafter, when traveling abroad, be treated with a degree of courtesy and respect that ho has never known before. N. Y. Mail and Express. Europo's grand old men are rapidly disappearing from the Btnge of earth ly action. Bismark soon followed Gladstone. And of the two states men which will be held in the world's most tender esteem? The Spanish soldiers at San Juan, Forto Rico are swearing that they will fight to the end. Well, so did those at Santiago. And the end will be the same. 7 The Summer School. The siu-cess of the annual session of the Lnmoille County Summer fccnool of Methods for teachers, now being held in Morrisville Academy, has been assured from the first. The corps of instructors as previously announced have taken up their as signed subjects and time with very pleasing and satisfactory results.

Onr good frind and neighbor of the H ml wick Gazette makes an in quiry in his last weeks' issue like this: 'Will somebody arise and explain whv the territory in Vermont, known to tame by the uin'hiHHic inline of Morrisville, makes more trouble for the pension department, thnn any other section of its size in this donmiu? It harbors more fellows who habitually draw fat pensions thnn nny other known territory with n similar population. And the list con tinues to grow. Last week (,'has. W. lloyn t.in was rnised from sev nteen dollars up to seventy-two and up to the time of going to press we haven't heard that he had made nny kick about it owing to the fact that he's dead. Mary J. Boynton of same town gets twflve dollurs through last week's action of the department There is a suspicion crop ping out in adjoining towns that Judge Powers is to blame for this condition. If so the Judire ought to be brought over into t.'uledonia county and shown around. Here in Hardwick is an old veteran who has lain on his buck, helpless, during the last year, worthy of national charity if any old veteran is, and every one of them is yet his case gets no attention from the department. The Judge should be brought up here or the old vet moved to Morrisville. .So far as we have been able to lenrn the word Hardwick doesn't o iur in the department business during the p i t year's work. Why is this thus?" ISriitJy and with soberness, for we consider an honest pension list a roll of honor, let us give our Brother Liiymon the information he desired. In the first place '"trouble" is not what this section makes the pension depHrtment, its just as easily and plainly the duty of the department to recognizj the meritorious claims hereabouts as it is for a barrel to roll down hill. Yes, we harbor with in just as good comfortable homes as their means will permit those who from their condition "habitually" draw pensions, and why so many and why so "fat" pensions? Let us say that with nearly three hundred of the boys of 'Gl being fur nished by this town, more in propor tion to tier size than any town in this vicinity, and with that number made up of those who were in the thick of the fight, doiug their full duty, is it any wonder that this town has a full pension list? Any one who witnesses the gatherings here on Memorial day and like occasions must see that this town contains a large number of veteran soldiers, while there are many others too fee ble to appear with their comrades on such public occasions. In addition to these whose home this is and has been since before the war, the natural attractions of our village and town have brought to us many new resi dents who have become citizens here, proud of the town and village of their adoption and among them numerous pensioners. The particular case noted was a resident of North Woleott to whom death came before the increase was at band, so there is no more ol that. The widow with her scant income of .fl2.00permonth.is now a resident of Morrisville. The First Congressional District, and Morrisville no more than any other part of that District, has in Congressman Powers a man who is in full sympathy with the veteran soldiers, but not to the extent of working a measley favoritism or putting up any jobs for his home people. Hardwick, the home of the Gazette, is over in the Second Dis trict where, if there are really deserv ing cases not having full justice in the department at Washington, their Congressman Grout "is to blame for the condition" as the Gazette says of Judge Powers. The Judge will probably not move up there, but we Kould readily welcome all the old teterans up that way who may fool that Morrisville air and thrift would be conducive to securing of a pension through either one of two of the best pension agents in the state, Harrison . George or A. A. Niles. So finally, il Morrisville has a large pension list it is because of our large number of resident veterans, who were in time rf war doing their full duty and do itg it well. c I (Don't borrow the home paper. MORRISVILLE. The Town Fathers have recon structed the small bridge through which Mr. Patterson and his load of twenty-seven thousund shingles went last week. They have also made an inspection of the planking and all wood work about the iron bridge in the village. It is evident that some repairs will have to be made there at no very distant date, both in drive way and foot path. I On Wednesday evening last, not withstanding the short notice given, a good sized audience gathered in town hall to listen to the excellent lecture on "Nullification and Seces sion" by Prin. Lewis H. Meader of Providence, R. I. Mr. Meader, in his topics for instruction in the summer school, gave special attention to United States History, so he was well equipped to treat his subject in an intelligent and interesting man ner. Previous to the introduction of the lecturer Miss 11a Niles of this place was introduced f.nd rendered a very pleasing elocutionary selection. She was heartily encored and re sponded. The lecturer and Miss Niles were introduced by Prof. Beebe. When the Brooklyn side sewer was put in, a few years since, it was put down with an outlet to the river across Mrs. Busrbee's lawn and gar den, south of the house. The loca tion of the sewer in that place does not provide for Charles Davis' new house, and for Calvin Spider's house now having a reconstruction. These two residents of Brooklyn desire sew er connection a nd the village Trustees are considering how they can best accomplish the desired end. A ser ious obstacle by way of huge boul ders and continuous ledges of rock has been encountered heretofore in that section of the village. The Trusteeshaveadesire to give the best of corporation privileges to every body, so far as money will allow. i nose who tailed to attend the lee iuie by Hon. Henry Ilouck of Penn sylvania., in rown nan last Thurs day evening, k)Ht a real good thing, good because of its geuniueness, its practical thought kuiuhiKl with a sugar coating of humor, and its ab sence of any lecture-like formalities. Mr. Houek in the Deputy State Su perinfendentof Education in Pennsyl vania, he is filled with German wit, as well as rounded out by a bitr heait and a jovial good nature. His eat -ject, "The Old and the New," had more directly to do with the con trasting of old and new teachers, old and new teaching and conditions and methods, as well as touching the new and the old other things. Inci dentally he recommended cheerful ness, helpfulness, a light hearted, joy ful life, turned down the grumblers, scolders and those who would pur posely ridicule others, and paid elo quent tribute to our country of this year 1808 and to the home life, the home refuge and the home happiness of tho American people. In the matter referred to in our last issue concerning nn altercation between Mrs. Joseph Laraway and Mrs. Joseph Kirby, Mrs. Laraway feels somewhat aggrieved because of the statement made that both parties were put under bonds to keep the peace. A future inquiry into the facts of the case shows t hat the dis turbance leading up to a court hear ing, was simply a war of words, that, while the former complained of the latter, the justice in the case as well as the State's Attorney concluded that no one woman could do all that loud and vigorous talking alone, that the evidence indicated that the dignity of the peace was quite as much shattered by one as by the other. So they considered it a petty neighborhood case, anyhow; says one to the other "guess we will have to put them both under bonds to keep the peace," and forthwith prepared the customary documents, which in MrH. Laraway's case were not fully completed, so strictlyspeak ing, all the legal formalities not hav ing been met, minus a technical point or two, Mrs. Laraway was not put under those dreadful bonds.
