Horridle Proceedings In China. Legislature. Montpelicr, Vt., Oct. 20 Legislative and social circles here have been busily discussing the Central Vermont reorganization bill ever since its introduction. The lawmakers arc getting pretty thoroughly waked up to the fact that the Grand Trunk Railway Company is bo- hind the measure, and its simultaneous anpenranco in both houses looks to them like an attempt to rush it through before its effects can be discovered. A strong opposition is beinsr formed to the bill as it now stands, investigation showing that it will enable a wholesale robbery. The issuing $12,000,000 in bonds by the new organization will amply suffice for all indebtedness, se cured or unsecured, and unless the bill bo amended in some way so as to pro vide for liie whole indebtedness it prob ably will not pass, The railroad com mittee met yesterday but their action was not made known.

The mass meeting to hear and net on the committees report of proposed char ter amendments was called to order at a little after 7 o'eloc'' last evening by E. W. Bisbee who gave a brief resume of the whole situation. Only about twenty were present when the meeting opened, eouutiug committee members and press representatives, but several more came iu soon. The first amendment considered was to Sec C providing that the Mayor re ceive such compensation as poople shall vote in mass meeting instead of a salary voted by the Board of Aldermen. L. A . Gale moved for adoption. A question as to ihe date of the meeting answered by a resolution by J. P. Man fixing it sometime iu the month o April. Gale accepted this as amendment to his motion and it was then carried . Section 7 had three amendments pro posed. First, that all members of the board of health receive reasonable com pensation for actual time spent. This was favored by Ihe commitice and on motion of Judge Barney was accepted. Second, that words "three auditors" be stricken out from the list of appointive officers. This makes the auditors elective by tho people. It was unanim ously recommended by -the committer. John Teirney wanted to know "why?" anil W. A. Boyee expiated that officers whose accounts liavti tB be examined should not. havo the-powfr to elect their own auditors, L. jlier spoM. in favor of the amendment. On mo'tipn of S. D. Allen it was adopted. Third', that in case of a vacancy in any appointive office by death, removal or inability, ex cept in casj of the aldermen, it shall be hiled bv the city council. 1 lie commit tee disapproved and it was dismissed on 11101 ion ot Judge Barney. The next amendment proposed the slrikinj; out of Sec. 9, which provides for the appointment of assessors. This would make them elective by the people. 1 lie committee by a close vote dii not approve. Some lively discussion fol lowed on both sides the principal speak ers being L. J. Bolster, John Tieruey, J. T. Canadian, V. A. Boyce, E. W. Bisbee, and L. A. Gale for election and James P. Man in favor of the present system. On motion of Ciillaghan the. amendment was adopted by a close vote. Sect. 1 1 was to be amended so as lo make plainer the duties of the city at torney, making him corporation coun cil. . Mr. Swasey who drafted the amendment made clear to tho voter? that this was simply to more specifically fix tho duties of the office. The speak ers in favor were YV. A. Boyee, J. T. Callaghan, Judge Barney, Donald Smith and S, P. Marr. Ou motion of S. 1). Allen it was voted to accept the pro posed amendment. Sect. 21 was to be amended so as to have the city jtld0 elected by tiie people instead of being appointed by the governor as at present. The com mittee did not favor the atneudneiit. Representative Swasey who presented the amendment, spoke in favor of it. J. P. Marr favored it but thought tho stale laws would not allow the change. . A. Boyee spoke against such amend ment John Tieruey spoke for it and when the motion was put a count was necessary which showed 9 for and 11 against. Tho next amendment was for Sec. 50 about election of officers, Coiiin i tec le- conimended that it bo amended so as to agree with amendment previously re commended making the ..auditors elec tive. It was so voted. Sect. 55 it was proposed to strike out thy whole section after "running at large of dogs."' As this would remove the whole tax 011 dogs the committee did not approve. J. T. Ciillaghan who presented it said such was not his in tention, he only wanted to strikeout the part that 01 tiered the money so raised to be expended for books in (lie public libraiy, J. P. Marr in a brief speech made a motion to amend as foMows: To strike out "and expended for tin; purchase of books for the public libiary." Mr. Callaghan accepted the substitute motion. W. A, Boyce thought the section all right now. J. P. Marr arose anil delivered a speech iu which hr staled people objected to making their dogs stockholders in the French Library "and then have to pay a yearly sum to use it. W. A. Boyce, Judge Barney, and B. II. Wells explained that the money does not go to the French library hut is held by the city treasurer till we have a public library. S. D. Allen thought the special tax on dogs on Ihe same basis as the income tax, which has been declared imconstitulioii al. On putlin;: the amendment to vote it stood 7 lo 10 in favor of Mr. Man's amendment. J. P. Marr proposed an amendment to Sec. 52 so that a portion t f it reads and at each successive balloting after the first the box shall be turned in two hours from the time of the opening of the box at that ballot.." This simply makes clear that the box must bo lurncd at tho end of two hours, Ihe present form not specifically slating so. After much discussion pro and con Mr. Swasey suggested that il be left lo the committee to decide. .Mair agreed and it was so voted. Afl amendment not direelly affecting any section of the present, charter was 0110 giving.lhe c:ty power to issue its negotiable coupon or registered bonds fornot exceeding six times the grand list, to fund any or all city debts ex cepting the water debt. Said bonds lo run for not less than ten or more than twenty years, the rate of interest and time lo bo fixed by vole of people. After a long discussion for and against it was voted to accept the amendment. Several pointed speeches were called forth by 11. XV. Scoll asking fur informa tion as to Ihe size of the water debt. Another amendment limiting the total indebtedness of the city to six times its grand list was accepted. An amend ment giving Ihe city council power to sprinkle streets where they wished to was laid on the tabic and is there yet. Another provided that a tax not to exceed 1? 1,00 or . 1 .25 on a dollar can be assessed by the city council lo pay running expenses. ThU simply culs down the amount of tax the city coun cil can raise 25 cents. Mr. Swasey fa vored the amendment. Judge Barney thought present rale of . 1.5(1 low enough and moved to dismiss the amendment. XV. A. Boyce thought it should not be dismissed, then followed a muililude of short and pointed speech es by S. D. Allen, Mayor Gordon and L. A. Gale besides the other speakers mentioned. On putting it to vote a count was necessary which showed it was not dismissed. Judge Barney then presented a sort of compromise measure. The whole nieetini; was thoroughly waked up now and speech followed speech and it look ed as though it would be an all nights sitting, when J. P. Marr motioned to adjourn. A count showed 8 against U for adjournment. The adjournment cuts off all changes and leaves the cily council the same power lo levy taxes il now has. The adjournment took place at 11.15. BLUE JEANS COMING. Manager Bushnell of the ScirHiiary foot ball team received word that the Blue Jeans of St. Alb ins will be hero Saturday to play God lard The Blue Jeans eleven is made up of old exper ienced players who have played togeth er biuce 1)2 and is one of the best teams in the state.
