NEWS AND CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1900. News and Citizen MORRISVILLE AND HYDE. PARK. L. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. REPUBLICAN TICKET. FOB PRESIDENT. WILLIAM McKIXLEY of Ohio. FOB VICE-PRESIDENT, THEODORE ROOSEVELT of New York. All Vermont roads lead to Montpel ier this week and there will be a dearth of political workers in nearly every hamlet up to places large enough, through legislative influence, to be styled as cities. Mob violence never makes Presi dents. It may give temporary ad vantage in cities, but very few rural settlements believe in such methods. Free speech is what the founders of the Republic battled far successfully. Those of our Vermont contempor aries who are still agitating the ques tion of a successor to Jonathan Ross, who is filling out the unexpired term of the late Justin S. Morrill are admonished that they have but a brief time to work in now, as the first ballot for preference, or a choice, will be taken Oct. 16. The newspaper editorial writers or voters are not "in it" any more the delegations from all over the state are there for the final inning as they think. The campaign that has been but re cently completed has been a vigorous one, hotly contested for all the minor offices, the State officials having the least trouble. It has been an educa tional campaign, with new issues to present by the dominant party, to be cotnbatted by the minority one in Vermont. Yet there were no clashes nor mobs to hinder free speech, and tbe Vermont holders of the right ot suffrage can speak to each other when they meet. Rather different out in Colorado, wasn't it? But out there mere boys were put forward by some body to do mob violence, aided arid abetted by those of oldergrowth, but no less immature judgment than the kid class of disturbers. Political opinions may run at the high temper ature point in Vermont, at times, but free speech is always welcome. " To be, or not to be," can be found in Shakespeare's works. vBy a casual glimpse of the exchanges coming to this office during tha last week it can be seen that many rival towns are bidding for the industries of those adjoining, wherein misfortune, by fire and otherwise, the sufferers are com pelled to rebuild or go out of busi ness. This procedure may be all in proper form. It means a bonus to secure a plant under such circum stances, and extra good judgment afterwards. A better way would Been to be for the smaller plants to adopt the co-operative plan, with their workmen, and it might be prop er for the larger ones to do it as well. It certainly brings workingmen and capitalists into closer relations. The ides of November will tell the story better as to whether capital caros to venture. Ib is surprising how eager some people are for notoriety, and per haps the Cambridge Transciipt con ductor is following in tbe same line for his next friend or chief, since he commented as he did last week in regard to" a Morrisville local in the News and Citizen, regarding a meet ing of the Lamoille County members of the next Legislature. Those who composed this gathering of Lamoille County members are supposed to be respectable citizens, at least the vot ers of the variou 4 towns so elected by choosing them to responsible places, and that they will do their whole duty. Baurn, as general undertaker of the mislaid hopes of the late county campaign, in which the County Senatorship may figure, is not to be blamed any more than for the "Transcript" language used in the comments of what appears under what was printed as a matter of news in these columns last week. The phraseology is familiar to a good many Lamoille County citizens, and has been for some years. The writer of that screed is evidently able to hold his own in that style of litera ture, so far as volume is concerned, but when it codipb to votesj, it does not apparently count. This allu sion may be unkind, but nothing more than that could be expected from what has been mapped out by the Cambridge "philosopher" as bap pening in MorrUville, for not a word of his prophecies is true. This Btyle of reporting current events is a little different from that in use up this way. What can not be learned, is not guessed at. Were either Bouru or his compatriot present when that alleged list of committee chairman ships was agreed upon? BEAR IT IN MIND. As is usually the case the men most to be feared by the opposing party get the largest amount of abusive epithets, and during this campaign President McKinley and Mark Banna seem to be singled out by our Demo cratic neighbors as being the most fit subjects to pummel. The ordi nary Democrat does not want a real easy job in the fighting political line, apparently, or he would tackle easier subjects. So far as is known Presi dent McKinley has followed the lines laid down by Congress io the Spanish American war, and the Philippine situation is but a continuation of it. prolonged unnecessarily, as many patriotic citizens really believe, by aid directly and Indirectly given in these TJuited States. It may be proper enough to hang to party lines, but there is a broader plane that should take precedence and that is patriotism to ones coun try, whether it be a native or an adopted one, through naturaliz ation, and abide by what Congress dictates shall be the policy. In the unpleas antness with Spain it was the repre sentatives of the people that forced President McKinley to act, and it would seem to the candid observer that a consistent Democrat should not desert a cause his party leaders espoused, and some fought for, when the President has done so well, in the carrying out of it. This is what is styled "imperialism" in this cam paign. Our first President Washington was not free from a similar charge, though classed a little diff jrently for kingship and as posing for a dic tatorbut the hundred and odd years of the existence ot the United States has seen no such result, through all the coming and going of Federal, Whig, Republican, Demo cratic and Republican (again) par ties that have been in power. No one can question but what there are good men in all parties, but how many are there in both who wish to go back to primitive processes the canal tow path and stage coach? Most of them seem to be fairly con tented with the fast railroad trains, trolley cars, bicycle, automobile, etc. The Republican party does not claim to have invented all these mod ern improvements and put them in everyday use, but does say that dur ing iti ascendeacy most of them have come into popular favor. We suppose this was a sort of " ex pansion that seems to be so unpop ular, with some folks, this fall; sort of an "imperialism," it might be termed. If to enlarge, to make the nation stronger and more far reach ing in civilizxtion methods, increased markets for our products, in which laboring men, business men and farmers benefit, then the more of it the better, but laboring men should be of the very last ones to seek a change, and it is more than probable that this will be very apparent when the ballots are counted in November.

The Universalist Convention of Vermont and Province of Quebec held its Sixty-seventh Annual Ses sion at Rutland last week, beginning Monday evening, Sept. 24 and clos ing on Thursday evening, Sept. 27." It was one of the most largely at tended, interesting, enthusiastic and profitable ever held in the State by the denomination. Reports showed that there had been very material gains in all departments of the work, but in its financial gains it had far ex ceeded the most sanguine hopes. Not only did these reports show that more had been given for mission ary and other purposes, than ever before, but that the surplus in the treasury was still larger than ever before. Much of this excellent financial showing was due to the untiring efforts and careful management of the Rev. Dr. I. P. Booth, who for several years now, has been the Con vention Secretary, and therefore its practical financial head. The Con vention showed its appreciation of his efforts, by unanimously electing him to this responsible office for another year. The Convention has been gradual ly gaining from year to year, and is now practically a tripple convention, although under one general head divided as follows : The State Y. P. C. U., the State Convention Proper and The Wom an's Missionary Association. It is thus divided for the greater conven ience of carrying on the work. Under the auspices of state Y. P. C. U. the interest of the young peo ple is found to be more easily aroused and more readily made to subserve the interest of the church at large, because giving to them a greater responsibility in respect to themselves. And they have never been known to disappoint the hopes of even those most pessimistic friends. The same can be said of the Wom an's Missionary Association. It is in every, sense a true hand-maid of the convention. At its last election of officers Mrs. Marie Tinker was elected President of the Association and Rev. Effie K. Jones ofBarre Vice President. With these two untiring workers at the head, a good measure of success is already assured it for the coming year. The convention proper, so called, has in hand the work in general, and is the power that keeps the machin ery in order and in operation. A move is now being made to put into the field a general superintend ent, whose entire time shall be given to the interests of the church at arge, throughout the state. Such a scheme has been entered upon in several other states, and it has proven highly commendable, and worthy of imitation. As such a move would be in line of the policy outlined and urged by the United States General Convention of Uni versalists, the Vermont State Con vention is anxious to fall into line with the policy thus outlined. The growth of the work m the state for the past few years has made some such move almost a necessity, and the financial condition of the demonstration will now war rant it. If the present outlook is continued, it will not be long before this de nomination will take rank equal in strength and Mumbers to that of any in the state.

Rushes and hazing at colleges are crowing conspicuously lss. This is a pleasing sign of the timps. And perhaps one reason is that the fresh men classes are so big and stalwart that it takes a pretty hefty lot of sophomores to get away with them. The conservatives are not having such a walkover in the British elec tions as they expected. The Liberals have made a number of gains, and at the present rate will have a consider able addition to their strength in the new House of Commons. But they still lack aninspirineleaderlike Glad stone and seem to be somewhat at sea as to the issues they are support ing. The prohibition special leftChicngo Monday for a trip of nine days througbObio, Indianannd the South. Stops will be made in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, returning to Chicago Oct. 9.

The wonderlul prosperity of the country was never more clearly shown than in the enormous amount of travel this season. Every rail road, steamboat and hotel has been crowded as never before. It simply shows when everybody is making money they are all anxious to get the benpflt of what it will give them. The creat Broadway Central Hotel in Boston are among the largest of the representative hotels of the coun try, and they report a business never before f quailed.

It will be remembered that the last General Assem bly a ppropriated a su m not to exceed $1,000, for the building of an addition to the State House. This wing is complete and the cost falls well within the appropriation. The entire building is in excellent con dition and ready for the coming ses sion. The building that stood on the site of the new addition was of one story. To this structure two stories have been added making a three story building of Barre granite, harmoniz ing in architecture with the main building. Back of the Speaker's desk in the Hall of Representatives an al cove has been built, having a roof in the shape of a half dome correspond ing with the central dome of the hall. The alcove adds to the general beau ty of the room. From the back of the alcove a door opens into a corridor f ight and one half ft et wide that leads from the main building to the third story of tbe new wing The corridor i really a covered stone bridge light ed by narrow windows. The ( fleet of the corridor or bridgeway, as spen from the courtyard ischarming. The con idor at the north end opens into a hall running at right angles to it in the wing. Directly across the hall is the door opening into the speaker's office, a room 14 feet square, with polished hard pine floor and ash fin ishing. The room is to have rugs upon the floor and -will contain a desk, chairs, and other suitable furni ture. There is a closet for hats and coats. At the west entrance of the hall is tbe ebtrance to the clerk's office. The outer room, which will be the general work room, is 19xl3 East of the main room is the clerk's private of fice, which also has a door leading into the hall. From the hall on the left near the wef-t end is a circular stairway leading to the two lower floors. The second floor is devoted entirely to the library. The room is 42x20. The north side is lined with shelves. The room is for the storage of public volumes. The shelves are of ash. The ceiling is low and the room has a very cosy air about it. The ground floor, from which there is a door opening to the asphalt paved court, will contain the ventilating ap paratus in one room and a place for general storage in another room. The entire wing is fitted up with elec tric lights. The woodwork is ash and hard piqe throughout. St. Johns bury Republican. STATE NEWS. .

Information and Bound Advice From "Your Father" to Ills "Dear Boy." My Dear Boy In your last letter you sny that old man Skinner, your em ployer, says that he "doesn't see what a farmer can be thinking of to vote for SIcKInley when the trusts are squeez ing the life out of the farmers and the country is drifting right Into Imperial ism every day." You want to know how to answer him? Well, I will tell you what to say to him, and then I have a few words to say to you. Ask Mr. Skinner If he remembers that In 1890 he sold that sorrel mare that used to work on the nigh side with old Jim for $45. Ask him whether the sorrel wasn't a better horse than that bay that he sold to Crawford the other day for $80. Remind him that he sold his wool In 1896 for 14 cents and that he sold this year at 27 cents and kicked like a steer because he didn't get 30. Gently suggest that he sold a couple of steers In 189G for $3.25 per hundred and that they were as good as those splendid fellows that he sold last week for $5.10. The old man runs a huckster wagon Into Nelsonville and sells produce to the miners' wives. Ask him If he re members that four years ago a woman would come out to the wagon and say: "Can you let me have a peck of pota toes and trust me till John gets work?" Remind him that the same woman comes out now and says: "Give me three dozen of eggs and two pounds of butter. What are those peaches worth? I'll take a baetful of them. Give me a peck of those tomatoes. How much does it all come to? Here's your mon ey. When are you going to bring In some veal? John likes veal for break fast." Ask him If he doesn't know that more money has been paid out as wages to workingmen during the past year than In any other year In the his tory of the Hocking valley. Ask him whether a considerable part of this money hasn't found its way Into his ca pacious pocketbook. Remind him that he told me that whenever the Mayhew farm Is put up for sale he intends to bid on that upper eighty that joins his and that he has made enough money Jn the last two years to pay for it. And then gently suggest that lie does not appear to be suffering much from Imperialism or trusts either. Tell him that perhaps he had better let well enough alone. Tell him not to vote for what he doesn't want. Tell him that when trade is good and business confi dence strong and healthful It Is not wise to tear the whole thing down by giving the administration Into untried hands. ' I think that this Is the only kind of argument that will touch old man Skin ner, but you, my boy. have -a larger soul. 1 want to say some other things to you. My boy, thank God that you live In a country prosperous at home and honor ed abroad and never so prosperous and honored as now. When you come to vote this fall, re member that the national credit has reached its highest point, that the work of American Jrborers has gained Its highest reward and that the glory of American arms on land and sea has been most widely maintained under the wise, thoughtful, pntrlotie adminis tration of William McKinley. Remember that his administration la carrying out the principles and policy of the Republican party. Remember that the blood of four generations of American soldiers runs In your veins and then vote so that you will not be ashamed of your vote on the day after election. Your Father. Under the present administration the United States Is lending coal to Newcastle, cottons to Manchester, iron to Russia and machinery to,nll the world. The Democrats promise to stop this business when they Bet into power. Most Be Thrashed Into Decency. Maryland Is a close state, and it Is especially significant therefore that Its gold Democrats and Independents are swinging once more Into line for Presi dent McKinley as they did in 180G. Mr. Charles J. Bonaparte of Baltimore, one of their leaders, declares that he will vote for McKinley and Roosevelt be cause Bryan's candidacy is "a menace to American Institutions and American credit." Of the Democratic party he says, "It must be thrashed Into decen cy and common sense if It Is to be once more a party worthy of power, and the more thorough and unmistakable the thrashing the better for It and the bet ter for the country." Such talk as this from one of the Marjinnd Independents forecasts another victory like that which broke Boss Gorman's grip four years ago. Boston Journal. The efforts to introduce foreign is sues into the campaign have come exclusively front the Democrats. The Republican platform appeals di rectly to the American voter and his welfare and doesn't' evade a single Issne. Reasons Good and Sufficient. There are over 30,000 bank depositors ln,Colorado now, nu Increase of nearly 100 per cent In four years. Terhaps this Is one of the many valid reasons why McKinley will carry Colorado this time. "He roted for Bryan in 1800" Is becoming quite a common form of introduction for the speakers at the Republican meetings In Kansas this year. ' ' Does He Forget t Red shlrtlsm In North Carolina nnd Goebellsm In Kentucky are omitted from all of Mr. Bryan's speeches on "government without the consent of the governed."
