Chicago architects -and builders estimate that tbe amount of building in that city this season has decreased to tho amount of ten millions of dollars on account of tbe strikes and th) eight hour movement. Of thii amouut four millions represents what would have bteu paid for labor alono. A fishing schooner named "The Sinters," loaded with fresh mackerel, strayed into Port land harbor on Monday. When Its skipper appeared at the custom house and was asked for bis manifest, he said that be had forgot ten it, and bo was accordingly lined '.".()(, as tbe law provides a Bum greater tban the boat is worth. Tbe Maine and Massachusetts fish ermen are jubilant over this unexpected op portunity to retaliate for tbe seizure of Amer ican boats by tbe Canadian autborlties. A "bomb" was exploded In the tolepbone investigation at Washington last Friday in tbe shape of an affidavit offered by tbe Fan Electric counsol in support of testimony be fore introduced. It purports to be by Zenas Fink Wilbur, principal examiner in tbe United States patent office at the time tbe HjII tele phone patent was grauted, who declares un der oath that he showed 1'rof. Hell the caveat of Elisha Gray and was induced to favor Bell in various ways. Previous affidavits of his be declares to have been obtained from bim while he was suffering from alcoholism. Prof. Dell makes a denial under oath of the charges containod in Wilbur's affidavit, so far as they relate to himself, and so far as bis knowledge extends. The House of ltepresentatives now has un. der discussion a bill which proposes to put a special tax on oleomargarine and other imita tion butter products, the purpose of tbe bill being to render the manufacture of such ar ticles unprofitable and drive them out of tbe market for the benefit of tbe dairymen. Tbe discussion began on Tuesday and it Is likely to last for several daye. Tbe bill is regarded as sure to pass tbe House in tbe end, but many doubt its wisdom and believe that the real thing to be aimed at is to compel those who make and those who sell imitation butter to stamp it as sucb and not put it on tbe mar ket for what it is not. Gen. Grout spoke in favor of tbe bill on Tuesday. Senator El munds is quoted as saying that tbe measure is constitutional. Vermont seems to offer a promising field for their tbe mugwumps hope. They believe that If tbe Hepubllcana of Vermont condone the mugwumptth conduct of Mr. Edmunds In tbe presidential campaign of 1884, tbla will be equivalent to a justification of thilr own course in the national contest, and so remove a strong barrier to tbtir reinstate ment in the party." Tbe Intimation which tbe Watchman here seeks to convey is that Mr. Edtnuuds was a mugwump in 1884, and in this way to poison tbe publio mind against bim. The insinuation is uttorly false, and tho Watchman knows that it Is false. From tbe beginning to tbe end of tbe campaign Mr. Edmunds let It be known tbat he believed the success of the Republican party to be eescn tlal to tbe well-being of tho counlry,and that every honorable means should be used to se cure tbe election of its ticket. At a grand ltepublicau rally held in Burlington in Aug ust, Senator Edmunds presided, and on tak ing the cbalr and introducing the speakers he made this opening speech : 'I must aay that a very close study and observation of the professions and practices of the Democratic party lu Congress and lu the country that tbe gene roua confidence of my rellow-citUeus baa enabled me to make for a long period, baa demonstrated to my mind tbat the safety and welfare of the people of the United States continue to demand Ita eicluslon from power. Whatever doubts or dltlicultles may embar rass our countrymen, here or elsewhere in the United Statea.lt seems to me tbat In the present attitude of political affairs tbe defeat of tbe Democratic party la a need fairly paramount to any other. 1 recognlxe fully tbe liberty of belief, of opinion and of action that belongs to citizenship; it Is ft fundamental part of our creed, and none of us can fall to feel tbe great responsibility tbat reautta from tbat freedom. Under such responsibility, and looking at every aspect of tbe public weal, the people of the atate of Vermont are again to rxprraa their opiulona of tbe prlnciplea, the rnelboda and the purposes of the Democratic party. It baa been wrong for more than ft quarter of a cen tury, and I fear will continue so for a great length of time to come. In the recent periods, when It baa bad coutrolof oue or other of tbe bousea of Congtess, it demonstrated Ita unfitness for government lu respect to nearly all the Important meaaurea ft propoaed or resisted, and every succeeding year aeema to decorate it wun a new tony." Tbere is no uncertainty at out this language. It is an earnest appeal for support of the Its publican party, and an unqualified expression of distrust of tbe principles and auimua of tbe Democratic party. On a previous occa sion Mr. Edmunds bad said : "Tbe evilt of a Democratic President and Congress are so enormous, as I think, that I hope everything tbat honest and honorable and palriotio men can do will be done to avert such a calamity." This was his attitude throughout, and when the day of election came be showed bis sin cerity by coming on from Washington to Ver mont to cast bit vote for bis party's ticket. TbiB was not the attitude or the action of a "mugwump." The only thing tbat can be alleged agaiuBt tho Senator, so far as the campaign of 1884 is concerned, is tbat he did not take tbe stump and make speeches', Tbe Watchman is welcome to go on with its attempt to whit tle down the party to as select a few as possi ble. Our only purpose now is to show tbe falsity of its assumption about Mr. Edmunds as a party man. The report of tbe Massachusetts railroad commissioners on tbe Bardwell Ferry disas ter was published on Tuesday. Tbe primary cause of tbe accident was a crib of hemlock logs which 20 years ago n contractor placed in tho embankment on which the track was afterward laid. This crib was filled and loaded with rocka and in due time it was cov ered with earth and forgotten. Gradually it rotted, tbe drainage from the embankment and tbe spring rains slowly undermined it and tbe roadbed, and tbe result was tbe dreadful plunge of the train down tbe precipitous 'n cllne into tbe river. Out of 48 persons cn the train 47 were Injured, of whom 11 were killed at once or hrtve esiucodied. Tbe com missioners do not bold tbe present manage ment of tbe road in any wise responsible for tbe disaster. On the week following tbe publication of bis "Wake up I Wako upl" war cry Mr. At kinB came out with a sickly attempt to make it appear that it was all a joke a "bait" thrown out to "catch gudgeons." This week, however, he has plucked up courage agsio, and in a prominent editorial paragraph be asks, "Shall George F. Edmunds succeed himself?" and answers tbe inquiry by saying tbat be probably will because "nobody seems ready to tako tbe responsibility" of standing against this man who "sulked in bit tent," refused to speak or write in bis party's favor and "placed tbe Democratic party in power In tbe nation." As we remarked on the for mer occasion, there is no mistake about tbia it is tbe Montpelier Bourbon Democratlo Argus which presumes to thus admonish the Republicans of Vermont. It is In order to ask once more bow those Republicans relish tbe leadership of Hiram Atkins I The autl-Edmonds sentiment among Republicans seems to bave appreciably dlmlolshed during the past weeks, and It ia probable that resolutions will be In troduced Into tbe atate convention endoralogHenator bumuooe acaooiuacy ior re-eieciioo. jne queauon la eometimee aaked, Will Senator Edmunda be ft can didate for tbe Preaidencr In tbe next national con vention T Tbe Journal corrrapoodent baa it from tbe blgheatantbority that Senator Edmunda baa refused to allow tbe uae of bla name again for tbe Presidency.

The first part of tho above is significant as showing tbe way tbe current is setting in Iho vicinity of St. Albans, for Mr. Forbes has generally been inclined to give expression to tbe anti-Edmunds sentiment. So far as the closing statements are concerned, It is a fact well known to everybody tbat Mr. Edmunds has never been a presidential candidate of his own choice or volition, and two years ago it was only through the direct influence of per sonal friends that he was kopt from a publio declaration tbat be would not allow his name to be used before tbe national convention.

It is a strong, complete, conch-e statement of the reasons which ought to de cide the selectmen to accept Mr. Mead'a de sign for tbe soldiers' monument. We endorse it heartily in every particular, and wo feel sure tbat it will be as heartily endorsed by a large majority of our Brattleboro roader?. In fact, with tbe exception of some members of the Grand Army poit, we know of few citizens who do not feel tbat there ought to be no question about tho acceptance of the "lt-cording Angel" as tbe most beautiful and appropriate symbol which it would be possi ble to obtain to commemorate tbe deeds of our llrattieboro soldiers. Many of the old soldiers give their earn est support to the Miad design. Those who oppoee it do so, as we believe, uuder a false conception of tbe real purpose and sentiment of Ihe proposed monument. Tbe monument is not to be a memorial to soldiers, as soldiers. It is not to be a monument to any one soldier ortoabundredsoldiers. Its primary thought is tbat of a tribute on tbe part of a grateful community to brave men who did beroio deeds for their country and freely offered their lives to keep the Union whole. Tbere are many different forms which sucb a testi nionial might take, and none of them need necessarily bave a distinctively military char acter. Even were a military figure to be chosen to crown tbe testimonial tbere is no special propriety in making it the figure of an infantry soldier, for Vtrmoutsent men Into all branohes of the service into tbe navy, tbe artillery and tbe cavalry, at well as into the ranks of the infantry. Judge Tyler states admirably tho real thought which our people bave In proposing to erect this memorial. "It is not a monu ment erected by our soldiers by themselves, to themselves, ini for themselves." It is tbe tribute of nil our citizens to the beroio dead, and it is one In which every citizen no mat ter whether soldier or civilian has a person al Interest. Tbe claim raised by somi of tbe old soldiers that tbia is a matter which it is their special right and provinoe to decide is therefore neither a modeBt cor a fitting one. It is something lu which every putrlotio citizen has an rqual Interest and an equal voice. could help them to. After all, the selectmen have the whole le gal power and they must exercise It to the best of their judgment and take the whole responsibility. Assuming this to be all so It has oosurred to me that tbo selectmen would naturally like to kuow the minds of tbelr constituents on the subject so far as any dif ference of opinion has been developed, How shall they find out the minds of their constituents? lam wholly opposed to an other town meeting. If anything was clearly apparent at our last town meeting, it was this Ibtt the de tails of what aud wbire a roldlors' monu ment should be waa a sul j-ct that could not wisely be determined in town meeting. A town meeting is not a body so constituted as to be competent to arrange details. They must be left to suitable agents ; and tbe town voted, as tbe act cont mplates, tbat tbe se lectmen wore such agents. You must get at tbe minds of your con stituents in some otbor way than by calling a town meeting; and as a bumble contribution I write this scrip to you, such as I would like to be written to me were I a town offioer in your place. To oome to tho point then, I bave a very strong and decided conviction that a uiotu ment of granite surmounted by Mead's "Re cording Angel" is tlit thing for llrattieboro. I have no faith whatever in the makeshift of zino commonly called whlto bronzs ;,lt is too cheap and unsubstantial ; it may last aud may not-probably not, but if it should it is too insignificant. But the figure on top that's what I more particularly have in mind, If you, as selectmen, fall to secure for us tbe "Recording Angel" as a crown to tho monu ment I shall believe tbat we and our descend ants to generations hence will aay and feel tbat tbe selectmen of Brattleboro of 1881! made an unfortunate and irreparable blunder. I could mention many who agree with me in these views, both men and women, but as I am not authorized to speak for anybody but myself, I forbear to do bo. Don't suppose tbat I shall be one of tbe "scolders" If you decide against my notions, but I shall very likely say that you made a great and disas trous blunder. If you care to know why my opinion Is such as I have expressed, here are some of the reasons inducing It : 1st. It Berms to me eminently fitting to bave an emblematlo figure suggestive of tbe inscribing upon tbe rolls of fame the heroic deeds, bravery and patriotism of our soldiers. This is not a monument erected by our sol diers themselves, to themselves, and for themselves. Were it to, it might be consid ered a want of delicacy for tbem to be pro claiming and eulogizing their own merits. But it la something far otherwise and better ; it is a monument erected by their fellow citl zns as a testimonial of their appreciation of their bravery, self devotion and patriotism aitjin tbat viow an emblem signifying tbat n angei nas in-crtoeu meir names ana nerotc deeds upon an imperishable registry is some thing tbat commends itself to every citizen. 2d. Suoh a monument would bn unique such as no other town has as yet, aud probably no town ever can have. .1.1. Besides being a memorial of our ap preciation of our soldiers' services, devotion etc, It will be an object of artistic pride to all of us. 4th. It will be, not a common, monoto nous repetition of what-other townB have done, but something peculiar to Brattleboro. .1th. It will be known throughout the country as something gotten up by Brattle boro, wbiob no other town had the opportu nity nor the taste to accomplish. (-b. It will be, lu my belief, an object of pilgrimage to all interested in our soldiery thousands will come to Brattleboro expressly to Bee it. 7th. And this is a continuation of tbe same thought. Oa tbe dedication of tbe monu ment, whero hundreds would come for tbe dedication of a monument of tbe old common place type, thousands will como to be present at tbe dedication of a monument tbat would appeal to their artistic and patiiotio feelings as sucb a monument as this would do. 8tb. And tbis is of tbe least importance, but perhaps worth thinking of. Brattleboro would gain great credit and honor throughout the country for ber artlstio taste and knowl edge of what la fitting and appropriate. I might suggest still further reasons that operate on my mind, but I will not trouble you with anything further, only to say in con clusion what everybody knows who is ac quainted with me at all, that I am not one who is wedded to bis own opinion and has an overweening confidence in his own judgment ; yet I believe that if you adopt the Mead de sign, so called, all our soldiers and others who may now be of a different opinion will in tbo course of a few years all agree tbat you did tbe right thing. Royiti. Tileb, This ia addressed to you informally, but you are at liberty to do what you like with it. THE XI! VH IX mtiicv, A STnANdC TALE Or THE OCEAN.

Tbe loss of current business for the same period Is estimated at $2,r00,. 000; and tbe amount of new business wblcb was stopped by tbe strikes at $23,000,000. These figures are an understatement of the actual loss, because tbey only cover the cen tral points affected by tbe strikes. It should be noted, moreover, that they begin with the first of May, and do not include tbe enor mous losses occasioned by Ihe Southwestern railroad strike and boycott; but tbey are sufficiently impressive as an approximate es timate of tbe net cost of three weeks of la bor movements. In the large majority of cases the losses were sustained by comforta bly paid and otherwise contented workmen who bad no grievance of tbelr own, but who I'rolioaliitr w Fliaial llluw ul lolyrui7 The Judiciary committee of tho House bave agreed to report tbe following amendment to tbe constitution ; First. The marriage relation, by coutract or in fact, between uue persou of either sex aud more than onu person of tbe other sex, shall be deemed polygamy. Neither polygamy nor any polygamous association or cohabitation between sexes shall ex ist or be lawful lu any place wlthlu tho jurisdiction of tbe United states or of any stale. Second. The United states shall not, nor shall any state make or enforce aoy law which shall al low polygamy or aoy polygamous association or co habitation between tho sexes, but the United States and every State shall prohibit the same by law within tbelr respective Jurisdiction. Third. The Judicial power of the Uolted states shall extend to the prosecution of crimes of polyg amy and of polygamous association or cohabitation between the sexes under this article; and Con gress shall have tbe power to declare by law the punishment therefor. Fourth. Nothing In the constitution or the arti cle shall be construed to deny any state exclusive power, subject to the provisions of this article, to make ami euforce all laws concerning marriage and divorce within Its Jurisdiction, or to vest lu the United States any power respecting the same wlthlu any atate. Sucb an amendment would go to tbe root of the Mormon evil, and strike a final and eradicating blow at polygamy as a system. It Is a step up to which the Edmunds legislation has naturally led. Should Congress enact tbe amendment and submit it to tbe stales, it would undoubtedly be carried by a nearly unanimous vote. Secretary Manning haa Improved rapidly of late.

Tbe good work which the Rural Improve ment society baa In hand for this acason, in tbe way of trimming up ragged edges al the Intersection of streets and lavlug out flower beds, Is already well advanoed, and ia being pushed rapidly forward. One of tha most notable of these Improvements ia at tbe foot of school street, wbere an ugly depression has been filled up, a neat plat of turf has been laid, and a place for a tlower-bed prepared Ao equally good pleoe of work has been dona on Green street at the junction with Church street, and on Canal street at the junction wllb Elm a neat circular bed having been arranged at the latter place.

Wantast'quet bas bad an unusual escape from fire tbis year, but Ihe vandals could re strain themselves no longer, aud at noon last Sunday the dry leavea and underbrush were touched off at a point about half way tlown In a line with tbe pinnacle. Tbe fire spread north and east, working up and over the lop of the mountain, covering a largo tract be yond, and destroying a good deal of wood which waa cut aud piled there. It kept on its way, winding here and tbere aud covering hundreds of acres, until it was extinguished by the rain on Tuosday. lu tbia instance, at least. It would probably be an act of injustice to charge tbe act of vandalism to "the boys," as bas beeu usually done. Tbero aro good rea sons for believing that the parties who set Ihe fire aro kuuwn, aud that tbey were adults from this village. AM the young undergrowth on the tract covered by the fire was destroyed. hundreds of birds' nests with eggs and young were burned, and mm h valuable timber either ruined or damaged. It is Impossible to prop erly characterize the spirit which leads to an act involving such results, 'the mountain was fired at the foot of the "hundred stepa" on Sunday n'gbt two weeks before this, but the fire only spread over a few rods of ground.

ABOUT TIIR BOLDIEIM' MONUMENT. Through the courtesy of Messrs. Har per Si. Bros, the publishers tif Tho l'Leuaix wero allowed the use of the plate from wblcb tbe illustration of Mr. Mead's "R -curding Angel" was printed in tbe issue of Harper Magazine for January. 1H3.j The plato was received at nnuu last Siturday aud wo tonne diately oaused a large number of impressions be made from it ior iree d a rtuuiior. These impressions gavo Ihe greater part ot our people their first opportunity to learn what the "iiecoruing Auger was i e any nae, aud tbe expression was almost universal that this was the thing to be use-d to cron our soldiers' monum, nt This sentiment in fa. vor of Mr. Mead's design has steadily grown, and we believe tbst a largo majority of our people feel thnt a snl unstakri w II be tuide if the seb'ttmeu allow tbu oppnituiiity logo by to secure so Utt ug au emblem to com memorato the deeds of the Brattleboro men who gave their lives for Iheir country. We learn Irom the selectmen thai a pollu tion haa b en prtseoied to the in. signed by 10 or 41) cit.zeos, ror aunth r special town meeting to be rilled in relation the soldiers' monument. Tbu purposes speotlled in tbe petition are to sea if tho town will instruct the aslectmen to put on the monument the names of all the Brattleboro soldiers, and to see If the town will i-ilen I Ihe time for com pleting tbe monumcu. We believe, as do many other citizens, the selectmen included, that a mistake has been trade in tLm com polling tbe voters to he sgsln called out on this subject. It Is true that a difference of opinion exists aa to tbe propriety of putting tbe names of the soldiers on tbe monument, but we kuow of no oue who is disposed to raise au issue on this nuostlon, anl the mailer could as well have been left to be voted on in a f uil aud regular moetiug next March, and tbo names oould then havo been added, if tho town so voted, on bronze tablets placed on tbe sides of the design which had been chnaeo. So far as the extension of time ia concerned, the selectmen would have felt fully justified under tho circumstances in taking such additional time aa might be nec'ssary It is a umo ot year wueu tun farmers can ill afford tbe time to como out to s loan meet ing, aud it is hardly possible in Mich a case to get an expression of lb s ntiun lit tif the whole town. There Is danger, moreover, of arousing bad blood on a subject which ought, least ol ail, lu be me subject of hiMted oon troversy. Tbs dale for the "pecisl meeting has not been fixed.

Fri.ta there they went to Italy, visiting Home, Florenri-, Venice and other polnta. They then crossed tbe tnounlaloa and made a abort tour through Hwltxerland and Oermany, reaching I'arla, as already atated, about May 1st. The news ot Mra.
