Tho Democrats ought to be satisfied. 'I'hoy

Tho men of Garfield's own State have shown
by their votes how much stock they take in
tho campaign blunders against him.
It is painful to think how many Democrat
ic air-castleB, with 'Tost Office" written over
the front door, have been rudely shattered
since last Tuesday morning.
Don't forget to give the admirable adminis
tration of President Hayes a good bit of cred
it for Tuesday's victory. It did a "power" of
good to have a Republican administration
which tho bitterest Democrat had to admit
whs clean and business-like.
Through tho e fforls of the Central Vermont
management the Allan lino of steamers,
which have heretofore run between Liver

Boston. The large amount of traffic which
has heretofore gone to Portland and Balti
more will now pass through Vermont to Bos
ton. Next Tuesday, in our Vermont Legislature,
the Senato and Houbc, each in its own hall,
ballot for a United States Senator to succeed
the Hon. George F. Edmunds on the 4 th of
March next. It goes without saying that no
voice will be raised, on the part of the over
whelming Republican majority, against Mr.
Ediuunds's triumphant re-election. It is hop
ed that the Senator may be present and ad
dress tho legislature on Wednesday, when
both houses will meet in joint convention and
the result will be declared.
If this thing continues Garfield and Arthur
will get ,129 electoral votes.

Gen. Walker, the superintendent of the
census, has made a report to the interior de
partment in regard to the apparent abnormal
increase in the population of South Carolina
shown by the census returns this year. The
report is the result of an investigation made
by two spccinl agents, and it sustains the sub
stantial accuracy of tho present census, while
admitting that no such increase of popula

Tho prevailing drouth is remarkable both
in its severity and in tho wide area of conn

water enough from any source for ordinary

there is no less trouble, nud many ordinarily
quite sizable rivers have become almost en

An examination of the records of Congress

sent a message to Congress stating that he

to keep the peace, and that their presence,
be thought, had been very beneficial. Y'ct
William II. English, the present candidate for
Vice President on the Democratio ticket,
with five other Northern Democrats, votod
that these troops should be instantly removed
from the national capital. Thero was uoth
ing inconsistent in this act, however, on tho
part of Mr. English. It was precisely what
one might expect from a man who voted, as
Mr. English did, against the expulsion of

The torchlight demonstration in New York

Indiana enjoys tho raro privilege of set

We shall see ft "change" when tho new
Gen. Hancock has this week put forth this
lucid pronuueiamcnto on tho tariff:
"The tariff question is ft local question.
Tho same question was once brought up iu
my native place in Pennsylvania. It is n
matter that tho general government seldom
cares to interfere with, nud nothing Is likely
over to be dono that will interfcro with tho
business of tho country."
Had a statement that Gen. Hancock had
said anything betraying such gross nnd ridic
ulous iguorauco as this been first published
in a Republican paper it would havo been
promptly branded by tho Democrats as a li
bel. It was a Democratio reporter, however,
to whom the General niado this remark, and
it was given to tho country in tho Democratic
aterson (N. J.) Guardian for tho avowed
purpose of recommending Gen. Hancock to
tho workers in protected manufactures iu
that locality. It Is hardly possible to Im
agine that thoro are a dozen High school boys
in Vermont who do not kuow that tho tariff,
instead of being a merely "local question,"
n leading national issue, taken cognizance
f by tho Constitution of the United States,
and which lias been n prominent subject of
ebato in every session of Congress sinco
en. Hancock was born, l ortunalely, there
is now no danger that n inau, who, though a
graduate of West Point, and n veteran army
officer, is capable of such ignorance, ran ever
bo elevated to tho 1'rCBideucy.
Tho New Y'ork Democracy havo made a
desperato effort during tho past week to get
d of tho impediments which Mr. John I.
Davenport, chief supervisor of elections,
places in tho nay of illegal voting iu New
oik city, and have failed. Tho Democrats
became alarmed becauso Mr. Davenport was
determined that the 70,000 fraudulently nat
uralized voters of 1S(!S should not vote on
their fraudulent papers, and as their last re
sort they submitted a motion for Davenport's
removal on tho ground of incompetency.
This motion was heard before Judges lllatch-
ford nnd Choate in tho United Slates Circuit
Court nt New York on Monday. Ex-Minister
Stoughtou nrgued against thu motion for re
moval, and Mr. Geo. W. Wingate argued in
favor of it. Judge Blatchford then rendered
decisiou, concurred iu by Judge Choate,
denying the application for removal and dis
missing the order to show causo. He said
that the evidence showed that Mr. Daven
port's instructions wero approved by Judge
Woodruff and tho District Attorney, and that
his course in submitting these instructions
for their approval showed that he had been
faithful iu the performance of his duty. The
court could only give advico iu tho matter,
but thought that soino parts of Mr. Daven
port's instructions, relative to seizing tho
fraudulent naturalization papers of 18118,
hould be modified. Tho failure of this en
terprise is a fatal disappointment to the New
Y'ork Democracy. They niado a grave mis
take in charging Mr. Davenport with incom
petency. The trouble with him, from a
Democratic point of view, is that he has been
too competent. He has been more thau a
match for their wiliest schemes against the
purity of the ballot, and the real difficulty is
that he stands resolutely and unflinchingly in
the way of their good old-fashioned practice
of rolling up Democratic majorities to order
of any desired size.

Ohto uiifl ImlltttiH.
Tho news from theso states is, in current
phrase, "almost too good to bo true." As
the political skies have looked for tho past
month, could tho Republicans havo bceu as
sured last Tuesday morning that, in Ohio
they would keep good their figures of i;,0.".fi,
which was tho plurality in that stato four
years ago, and that, in Indiana, the Demo
cratic plurality of tho same year conld bo
kept down to its figuics of .",OSt, they would
havo been moro than satisfied. As it proves,
however, tho Ohio figures rise to at least a
round 20,000, nud iu Indiana tho Democratic
plurality changes to tt majority for Porter,
tho Republican cand'date, of not less thau
fcOOO. Tho Republican surprise and jubila
tion over this magnificent result is only equal
cd by the disappointment nnd depression of
tho Democrats. For tho Republicans it is an
augury of assured success iu the national elec
tiou ; to the Democrats it is a Waterloo de
feat, both now and on tho second of Novein
ber. Not tho least gratifying feature of this
result is the hopeful indication which it gives,
by the gain of eight or more Republican con
gressmen, that the Republicans may have a
good working majority in tho next National
House of Representatives.
In estimating the significance of tho Re
publican victory in Indiana, it is to be re
mombercd that it is twelvo yearn since tho
Republicans carried tho Stato in the October
election. Twice sineo theu the State has
gone Republican iu November, but only when
the other October elections, nnd the general
set of the political current, had satisfied tho
Indiana Democrats that there was no hope of
a Democratio success in the national election.
Tho State has been iu fact a Democratio State
almost as surely as Vermont has been Repub
lican. This year tho Democracy havo con'
ceded that they must carry the State iu Octo
ber or give up the uational fight. All that
money, fraud and corruption could do, to win
success, they have dono. They have worked
with absolute desperation, but they have Big.
nally failed, and their disappointment and
chagrin know no bounds.
The result of the October elections is the
answer mads by the people of the two great
States of Indiana and Ohio to the Blanders of
the Democracy upon the fair fame of Gen.
Garfield, tho chosen standard-bearer of the
Republicans. From tho beginning of the
campaign, the policy of the Democrats has
been one of unfouudod abuse and vilification
of Gen. Garfield. Samples of this mud
slinging wero freely given us ou our local
Democratio platform, aud iuour local Demo
emtio organ, and theso tactics were tho same
which have been employed by tho Democrats
all over the country. The people of tho Unit
ed States do uot believe that James A. Gar.
field is a thief or cormptionist, and Ohio and
Indiana have said so In language not to bo
misunderstood. This sweeping victory is tho
answer of the pooplo to tho Democratio cry
for a "change. It is tho answer to the men'
nco of the Solid South. It shows the distrust
which the great business interests feel of tho
policy, or heck of policy, of tho Democratio
parly. It is an assurance of Republican vie
tory iu November. Jt is a guaranty of peace,
prosperity and good government for four
years to come.

THE VERMONT PHOENIX,
Tho amount of bail in tho caso of Silas M.
Waito was not fixed by tho court last week,
for tho reason, ns stated by Judge Vcazey,
that tho respondent wns not ready to offer
bail, and tho statute does not authorize tho
court to fix an amount of ball in term time
for tho assistant judges to bo governed by iu
vacation. Tho court having reached n final
adjournment tlio mntterof naming bail is now
in tho hands of Assistant Judges Ballon nnd
Wyinau. No intimation is given ns lo what
nmount of bail would be required should the
respondent offer It, except that it would be
proportioned to tho enormity of tho offences
nnd goverucd by existing circumstances.
Judgo Vcazey remarked that tho moliou
which had becu filed and heard for a transfer
of tho causes to another county for trial bo
ing nddrcsscd lo him ns n Supremo Court
judge, nud uot to the court, it wns not neces
sary that tho motion bo disposed of during
term timo. Ho said thero wero numerous
reasons why tho causes could uot bo properly
tried now, and that, as n chango of veuuo
had been requested, ho might think it best to
scud them to somo other county where n tri
al could bo had as soon ns possible. Tho
whole matter is Iu Judge Vcazey's hands for
decision, nud ho will net iu tho matter ns ho
thinks will best subservo tho causo of justice.
He has reconsidered his determination to
send Waito to somo county which has a De
cember term for trial to tho extent that ho is
not at present decided whether ho will have
him tried iu December or whether ho will
think best to hold him for trial in March,
Tho October term of Judgo Wheeler's
United Suites District Court stand ad
journed to November Kith. This ad
journment was tuada by Judge Wheeler
becauso thero is uow no United States Dis
trict Attorney iu this Statu to present causes
before tho grand jury Hon. II. P. Fitield of
Montpclier having resigned that position
and thero will bo no appointment to fill the
vacancy until President Hayes returns from
the Pacific const. Theru is little doubt that
indictments against Wnito will be found by
tho grnud jury in thnt court when it reassem

tho United States government, through its
representative iu llrattleboro, Mr. Linus M.
Price, Receiver of tho First National Bank,
would not allow Waite to go at large, even
should he find bnil beforo the county court.
In caso of his release on bail the fact that ho
has once, run away would not opcrato in his
favor with the government. Ho is also

suits. In view of these facts it is understood

Eilltoriof The I'htrutx:
At this lime, whilo Ihu oyes of the people
of thu Stato nre being turned toward their
capital, n letter containing something of tho
loincs of tho oxecnllvo ofllcers and tho legis-
latlvo bodies, may not bo without IntertBt to
your readers. Nearly ivcry member of both
Houses was present when tho opening roll
was called by Lieut. Governor Oolton iu the
Senato nud by Secretary Nichols In tho
House, and tho business of both Houses was
speedily under way. It is a compliment to
Windham County, aud curbilnly a great ono
to Hon. James L. Martin, that lie was dieted
Speaker of the Houso without any other can-
di-lat- being placed In nomination, nnd by ft
viva oco vote without ono dissenting voioo.
Colonel Hooker nominated Mr. Martin iu a
very npproprinto speech, whlcn was followed
with so.'onillug speeches by many gentlemen
from different parts of tlio Stalo s probably
this Ihing would have gone on until every
member had spoken, hail it not been cut
6hort by tho viva voco motion. This evident
ly shows that Mr. Martin is ono uf the most
popular men In tho Stst-, if not thu most
popular ono. Will his honors b-i nllowi d to
rest here? Or will it soon In- "Governor
Martin '" The chaplain of tho House, Rev.
Mr. Currier, is knowu to Windham county
people, havinre formorly been pastor of the
Methodist church in Putney.
The review of tho Militia of the State nt
Camp rariiham by Governor Proctor, on
Wednesday, was tho great event of the day ;
tho Legislature adjourned, nnd peoplo from
outside tho tonnenmo in large numbers In
sco tho uiatiiiuvriiig oi mo troups. ine
Governor was accompanied by his staff aud
by au ofllcer of the British army iu full dress
uniform. Tho companies made, n fine ap
pearance and went through the manual of
arms, with wonderful celerity. The Fuller
Battery was an especially attractive) feature
to "tho country folk," and tho chorus of
Olis!" when tho colonol ordered the boys
to givu au exhibition of rapid firing with
blank cartridges was somewhat amusing.
It is said by people who have seen many
Vermont Legishturo, that tho present Sen
ato is a younger looking body than usual,
while tho House is older. Be that as It may,
each of them is an interesting looking com
pany of men wheu seen from the galleries ;
otio sees of courso some weak faces, but ou
tho whole Senators and Representatives aro
stroug looking men. More thau one-half of
the members of tho House are farmers and so
far they seem to hate more thau half of tho
ability. Economy was beard from early in
tho session, aud will probably cost tbe State,
by tbo simple ri petition of the word, at least
ono thousand do'.lars beforo thu session ends.
Tho members of both Houses voted them
selves one daily paper each, instead of two
dailies and one weekly, tho usual number,
which was certainly a good move.
The Governor's reception Weslucsday eve
ning was pronounced on all bauds a very
brilliant affair. Over niuu hundred invita
tions were issued and more than six hundred
Dcoplo attended. Governor aud Mrs. Proc
tor and Governor-elect aud Mrs. Faruham re
ceived, the Governor's Staff in full uniform
introducing tho isitors. Ou Thursday, at 11
a. ., Governor Proctor delivered his valedic
tory address and as all of your readers bavo
seen It beforu this time, no doubt they will
agree with mu in pronouncing it a vtty able
paper. Mr. Proctor rnuks among the very
best of Vermout Govt morn. MluIiou is often
niado of his personal resemblance to Abra.
ham Lincoln. His sterling common sense
might also bu comjuired with that of our
greatest president. At 2 i u. Governor

Proctor aud his aidet de camp in carriages.
prececded by the St. Alb-ins Brigade IUnd
and tho First Regiment Vermont Militia iu
full parotic uuiform, formed in platoons by
companies, and, followed by Fuller Battery,
marched through State street to the capitol.
Tho large Roprcseutatites hall was crowded.
Gallery and lobby were packed to hear the
inaugural address of Governor Farnhatn.
Extra seats were placed at tho right of the
Speaker for the ladies, who nearly hid from
view a portion of "the honorable Hetiato."
When tho door-keipcr called with a loud
voice, "The honorable couimitte-o aud His
Excellency the Governor.elect,1' every one
who had not been him at tho reception,
strained his eyes to get a look at. thu new
Governor. But tho bu7z of excitement which
followed his entrance was quickly followed
by sileuco when Judgo Redfield, with impres
sive emphasis, administered the oath of of
fice. Mr. Farnham luadtj a good impression
ou all, aud nearly every one iu the large au
dience remained until tho closo of the ad
dress, ullbough it was ipjite long and many
parts of it full of statistics.
Not ninny bills of general iuttrest havo
yet been presented, excepting somo tending
to the reduction of court expenses. Mr. Fi
field of Moutpelier has introduced ft bill
which, if passed, would practically abolish
the county court grand juries, aud one clause
would blast the hojies of mauy n young law
yer, as by it ft man would not bo eligible to
tho oflke of State's attorney until teu years
after his admission to the bur. A move will
probably bo made in the Senate in favor of a
constitutional nmeudmeut providing for an
annual session of the Legislature, but will
probably not go fur enough to be given to
the people for their ratification or rejection.
Some of the papers of the Stato aro pitching a
high tuue in favor of districting tho State
nud reducing tho uumber of representatives
to ono hundred. If this could be done and
keep the pay of the members at three dollars
ft day it might be a goad thing for tho State :
but the pay per member would undoubtedly
bo iucreased so that the expense to tho State
would not be reduced, and under the circum
stances tho small towns will probably not
look upou tho move with favor. To-day the
Speaker announced part of tho House Stand-
ing Committees, The list will probably be
completed to-morrow and then work will be
commenced iu earnest, tho Senate commit
tees having been appointed last week. In
our next we shall probably have the plcasuro
