NEWS ANft CITIZEN, JUNE 16, 1915 News and Citizen MORRISVILLE AND HYDE-PARK i C. f k. K. LtWIS, . Editor and Manager The Republican party contemplates the desertion of Bryan with sympathetic interest. The G. O. P. has had some ex perience with quitters. ' ' Montpelier is making State street "bet ter than ever" in the erection of substan tial brick and stone blocks to take the place of the buildings destroyed by fire. And the "Rialto" bridge is to give way to a modern structure. The old-time structure, which has many a time aided legislators to get or keep their bearings will be missed by the general assembly and the public generally. The New York World has been inter viewing "the man in the street" in an effort to guage the sentiment concerning President Wils-jn's international policy. Americans in all walks of life werequeried and the voice of the people irrespective of party affiliation, was almost unami tnous lor the stand taken by the President and against that taken by Bryan. The people are for Mr. Wilson and the people never quit. Almost every newspaper in the state had the advertisement of the Local Op tion League in its issue ot last week. This is pure, straight and legitimate ad vertising, for which the League pays a reasonable price. Some criticize this ad vertising, but for the life of us we fail to see wherein it is not just as reasonable and just as fair for newspapers to accept advertising of this class as that of any other kind. The League is honest in its endeavors and that it has strong grounds for its argument that there is less liquor sold in the state under the present law than was sold under the old prohibitory law no fair-minded person will dispute. While prohibition may be the best thing for the state, until we can have prohibit tio'n that will prohibit, let us have that law which does to a larger extent than any other law we have ever had curtail the illegitimate sale of liquors. Be rea sonable and fair in dealing with this im portant question. A Hyphenated Quitter The Democratic party practically wrecked itself by its fatuous submission to the whims and vagaries of William Jennings Bryan. For years it sacrificed public confidence for sounding brass and tinkling cymbal. Now Bryan, who re garded a great party as a personal pos session, and who was honored by it be yond any other man, betrays it, seeks its destruction and conspires to discredit and humiliate its titular head the Pres ident of the United States. But Mr. Bryan is not false alone to his party, and to the President of the United States. He is false to the American peo pie and the American republic. In at tacking a policy of the President, which has been approved by the people of the United States, he has arrayed himself against the people of this country. More than that, by a series of seditious mani festos he is seeking to array one class of citizens of this country against another class and against the government to which they owe allegiance. LAMOILLE COUNTY COUR1 ' Continued fro n fHge 2 When court came in at two o'clock Monday afternoon moti in for sentence was made in State v. DeManche, and he was sentenced to not less thtn two nor more than three years in State Prison at Windsor. During the forenoon lie divorce case o Henrv Muckler v. Maud Muckler was heird.

E. & F. O. Burt Lumber Co.. v. H. E. Shaw and Will Horner, all Stowe parties.

Fisher, F. B Noble, II.G.Hutchins. Meaning of Flag Day Monday last was "Flag Day" and in several places Old Glory was flung to the breeze in honor of the event. The American flag is the banner of our country and stands for the history of civilization on the western continent. Just now it is the only unselfish emblem among the nations of the earth and means peace, if it is possible to make peace. But it never means cowardice, conquest or oppression. Beneath the folds of our flag all mankind have taken refuge and it has been the beginning of their hope and theguardianof their liber ty' To know the meaning of onr flag we - must know history not only the history of America, but the history of the world. It was the first banner ever unfurled and successfully maintained in the cause of human liberty. It means a common- ' wealth and the law made by the democ racy of the nation for all men and it guarantees to all men the right to govern ' themselves. Flag Day was inaugurated and is now annually observed that the people of the United States who were bciru here, and the people of the world who came here to wear allegiance to our country and the children who are to be oar citizens, year by year as they are turned out of the crucible of patriotism in the American public schools shall never be permitted to forget the meaning of the American flag, and that in rallying round its glori ous colors til men and the children of all nations shall know what this flag stands ' for and shall pledge their lives in its de fense and for the promotion of all that it guarantees in civilization. COURT NOTES Deputy Sheriff Jones has charge of the jury in the case now on trial. The State's Att'y and "Roge" are wear ing the best clothes this week. The Sher iff is not in the same class. Wells and Demanche were taken to Windsor Wednesday in E. G. Fobs' auto. "Ern" acted as chauffeur and Sheriff Stevens had as his assistant Lee Elliott. The Deputy Sheriffs have been doing good work this term. Those in charge of panels that had to camp in the dormi tory over night say they never had better men to look after. Stowe is well represented at court this week. The interest in the Burt Shawl case is not however confined to that place many interested spectators being present from other parts of the country. "Bunch" hadchargeof a panel over one night and he allows that be never had a more lonesome lot of men, all were long ing for home. "Bunch" did all he could to comfort them and when it was sug gested that a Victrola be brought into the dormitory to while away the sleep less hours "Bunch" fell asleep and snored "to beat the band," so much so that there was no need of a Victrola. Next morning one of the jurors said he had slept in a saw mill, when it was running full blast, but it was nothing compared with "Bunch's" snoring propensities.
