THE VERMONT PHGENX, AND RECORD AND FARMER, FRIDAY, MAY tfO, 1884.
A POLITICAL BKIIMON.
By Invitation of tho pastor, Ilev. 8. II,
Leo, tue members of l'ost Sedgwick, U. A.
It., accompanied by Tyler Damp, 8, of V.,
nnd the ladles' relief corps, attonded morning
service at the Congregational church last Sun
day, In a body, Mr; Lee's sermon was of a
two-fold character, having rcforcuco both to
the soldiers' memorial day and to the day of
prayer appointed by the Women's Christian
Temperance Union. Ills text was taken In
Komans xiu, 1 1 "The powers that be are or.
dslned of God." Those words of Taul, he
mid, aro but the statement of a self-evident
net, bit It Is one which men are not apt to
rosllro except In tlmos of dlstross and peril.
Among the audience present, he remarked,
thero aro probably not less than 100 gold
watches, and not ono dirk, pistol, or other
weapon of defence. Thero Is n feeling of
safety throughout the community, Wbnn
two parties disagree, they appeal to a third
prly the lsV whioh Is presumod at least to
establish equity between them. To whatever
branch of tho ohurch wo belong, we worship
God in freedom. All those things aro possi
ble because of the existenoe of tho state,
whose office, it Is to afford protection. Hu
man government had Its origin in that feeling
of righteousness which oxists deep down la
every human heart, and honoe Is of God. Wo
talk about the farmer producing wheat ; but all
that bo really does Is to prepare tho ground
and sow the seed ; so do oarthly rulors some
times think that they direct the affairs of
government ; but a higher ruler Is ever watch
ing and over-ruling for his own ends. Should
one visit Washington and watch .the dally pro
ceedings of thoso whom wo have delegated
to niako and execute our laws for us, he would
hardly suspoct that God rules. The thought
which dominates all others, and which con
trols the action of our legislators upon overy
subject brought before them Is not, What is
right ? or, What does lln country need ? hut,
Who is to bo tho next President ? or, How
will my action upon this or that measure af
fect most for the good of my party and the
defeat of my opponents ? And so, weeks of
Idleness or party manwuvrlng drag into
months, and no action Is takon upon ques
tions of tho greatest publlo moment. And
vet, whose is the fault? Our Congressmen
are in roality men above the average of their
constituents in learning and ability. Ninety,
nine out of 100 of tbem arc selected from the
upper fifth of society. They aro In Washing
ton because the people have cent him there;
and they aro responsible to tho people for
their acts. As showing how governnit-uts
arise from n popular necoity, tho preacher
fetched the early history of our owu couu.
try and Paul' J Idea of the neoeiwity of a civ
il government, as expressed in the text. Is
the nioro forcible because uttered during tbu
reign of ono of Homo's worst tyrants Nero.
A second lesson to bo gained from tho text
was that civil government belongs to God, in
the sense that it was instituted to aid in estab
lishing his church upon the earth, or, In oth
er words, to maintain that order of things un
der which the church could best extend its
power and Influence. So, also, the ohuroh
strengthens tho eta to by giving it a oonsounoe
Man receives his stewardship from God ;
hence he is bound to do righteousuess.
"Hlghteousness oxalteth a nation" It affects
tho quality of Its population and favors tho
accumulation of wealth and tho Increase of
intelligence and national power.
Tho preacher then referred to what ho re
garded as the two chief perils which now
threaten our nation. The first Is the usurpa
tion of power and its degroJation to personal
and selfish ends by thoso In authority. Ab
Balom was pictured as the typical usurper,
and as he by his deceitful words and kisses
stolo tho hearts of the pooplo of Israel, so
does tho modern ofQco-seeker, by his hand
shaking and affected friendship, seek the
same selfish end. That we have an army of
100,000 offlce-holders.among whom $100,000.
(100 are annually distributed, and whoso
places others are anxious to fill, is a fact
fraught with great peril. It is perfectly right
that a man should aspiVo to occupy a position
of public trust and responsibility for which
ho feels that ho is especially qualified, and to
be called to such au office is honorable ; but
where tho covoted position is obtained by
bargain and Intrigue, thrusting asido all con
siderations of publlo welfare and personal re
spect, where is the honor?
Tho second peril alluded to U that of in
temperance. No power is so dominant or so
dangorous to our pnblio welfare as the rum
power. Its statistics are appalling. In their
annual cost, tho educational interests of the
country represent but one-tenth that of the
liquor interest, and the religious interests but
another tenth. Intoxicating liquors cost the
country $000,000,000 annually, and yield a
revenuo of $90,000,000. An interest so vast
must needs have a potent Influence upon leg
islation. Accordingly wo sej the opposition
awakened in Congress by the measure long
ago introduced providing for the appoint
ment of a commission to investlgato the
methods and results of tho liquor traffic. The
American bog has bad his commission ap
pointed, and been vindicated. We have bad
a silver commission, a grasshopper commis
sion, and so forth ; but this measure of vast
ly greater moment is refused, and Congress
stands at the beck of the wickedest power
that stalks to-day. It was evident to tho
preacher that neither political party would
take tho lead in temperance roform ; but, for
one, ho would never cast bis vote for a candi
date who would oppose temperance legisla
tion. In concluding he remarked : we know
the history or ltome and the other nations of
antiquity, how they roso, flourished and fell
through their own vioes and corruption. Is
that the inevitable conrso of empire ? Must
it be always so 7
The service, which was opened by the sing.
In K of the doxology, was appropriately closed
by the congregation rising and singing, ".My

More or lens of tho granite quarry men bad been hang
log about hi phce tbo greater rart of the day on Hun
uay. and bad been drinking elder or other liquors
which, however, they did not obtain at bis home.
Sometime In the afternoon a Frenchman named re
let Augey, a young man of about 33 years, who had
lately been married and who wanted to 'treat' tho
crowd, came to him with a pint bottlo, which be de
manded to hnre Ailed with whiskey. Sampson rcfua-
u uuuif, uui Augey aepi imporiuuing blm
and finally threatened hlra, and to get rid of him
Sampson left tbe room and went to thn ! W tin ft nf
the hoiisf, where his wife was. Angey followed blm,
uowpver,auu Mampson at length went out of doors,
hoping thus to avoid tbe crowd and keep tbe peace.
Aa he went out bla wife handed him a pistol with
which to defend himself if necessary. Angey and his
fellow attll punned him, and be heard one of them
say to Augey: 'Bralu him with your bottle If he
don't giro you tbe rum I" Upon thla Angey struck at
blm, hitting him slightly on tbo shoulder. Sampson,
who waa standing on or near tbo step of his hotel,
then drew his pistol in self-defence aud flrcd down
ward, bitting Angey In tho leg.
This, as wo havo said, Is substantially tbo story a
told by Sampson. The Frenchman, ou his part, aaya
that two or three times on Sunday, beginning In the
morning, ho bad sent to Sampson for liquor and had
got It, and bad drank hlmeelf and bad treated bis fel
lows. When he sent In tho afternoon for more liquor,
Hampsou rerosed to let tbo person by whom ho sent
havo It, and he then went himself. IT says he was
partially drunk, and admits that abusive language was
used and that he waatrjlng to force bis way into the
hotel, past Sampson, when the latter flrcd. Immedi
ately after the shooting Bampnon telegraphed for 8.N.

to make any arrests; but tbe feeling against Sampson
was BO Stronc that be took him Iinmn vllh him nr1
kept him over night and until hta wife came for him
and took him home.
The affair, as we have said, has created much ex
citement. Tbe feeling Is strong, and much of It is
against Sampson not so much because it Is thought
he went beyond bounds In shooting tho Frenchman,
as from a belief that be has been selling liquor freely
to men who ought not to have It. No arrests have
been made at this writing, but it Is understood that
Sampson will bo arrested to-day or to-morrow and
will bare a hearing at llrattleboro DroLnblv unon a
charge of llqnor-aetllng.
