THE VERNON EOAD,
INVESTIGATION BY THE COURT
'I'lit' Trxtlmmiy 'I'likcn mill t'oiiliioiiii
The court commission, consisting of Hon.
1,1-wls Walker of CJrnfttm, II. C. hane,
l-i., of Westminster, and Hon. O. H.
(.arlit'lil of Townslieml, lieltl u hearing ami
iiiM'stigation last Friday and Saturday,
with regard to the dangerous place on the
Veinoii road, near the railroad tracks, and
(lie need of better highway accommoda
tions (here. Meeting on Friday morning
about 10 o'clock the commissioners first
looked over the ground in company with
.-everal of the petitioners, the selectmen,
nud ?eneral Superintendent Foss of the
Central Vermont company. Some further
time was spent on the ground In the after
noon, and then the formal hearing was
bmun In the olliee of Hon. Itoyall Tyler.
Among the witnesses whose testimony was
taken were (Jeorge H, (Mark, Hon. H. I).
Harris, Dr. Joseph Draper, .laidge Wheeler,
John Hunt, Warren dishing of Vernon,
.1. Henry Pratt, J. M. Foss and K. F.
Hrooks. Hon. Lewis Walker acted as
chairman of the commission, Hawkins ot
Moddnrd appeared for the petitioners, and
Waterman, Martin Vr Hltt for the select
men. The hearing on Saturday was held
in the lower town hall.
Kach of the gentlemen named was asked
to give his idea of the situation, ami to tell
what remedy lie would suggest for the ex
isting trouble. The agreement was unani
mous that a very dangerous state of things
existed, and that a better roatl was re
quired. Several of those who test I lied said
that as a remedy they would keep close to
the foot of the bank, beginning at the bot
tom of the hill near the coal yard, crowding
back Into the bank as far as possible, and
taking out the row of houses above anil
below the Wood road. Others said the
road should be moved west of the point i
spoken of into the bank, taking out the
four houses north of the Wood roatl, and I
then swinging to the right, and passim; I
gradually up the bank upon the edge of I
Mr. Wood's Hat, crossing the Hat and going
down the bank and coming out in front of I
the house of Henry Allen.
.Some thought that a road could be built
that woidd satisfy the present requirements ,
b keeping within the survey of the present
road, removing all the houses within the
suney. cutting off the point below the
lliley house anil stable antl coming out on
to the line of the present road below the 1
Dilution house, which would also be re- !
Superintendent Foss said the westerly 1
track was put in at the request of the late
Deacon Estey and others for their accom
modation in loading and unloading freight.
It cost the company about $1000. He sup
posed It was partly in the highway antl
hail no right there. The company had of
fered to remove the track if the town wish
ed it done, though this would cause incon
venience both to the road antl its patrons.
It would be possible for the road to crowd
its tracks over to the east by filling in and
enlarging the yard next to the river, but
this would make a heavy expense. He
would consult with the other officials of
the company and see what they would
agree to do in the matter. Mr. .Foss stated
that all that the railroad company had pro
posed to do thus far was to pay one-half
the cost of erecting a high board fence at
the tlangerous point. This was as far us
the negotiations with the selectmen had
proceeded, within his knowledge.
The fact was stated, in the course of the
testimony given, that instead of one rail of
the westerly track being In the highway
the whole track is within the limits of the
highway for several rods. The stumps of
some old telegraph poles were recently
found in the ground there, standing east
of this track, showing that the former line
of the railroad must have been east of these
poles. It was conceded by all that the
most dangerous place Is at the point below
the Itlley house, and just above Mrs. Dun
don's, where the bank sticks out sharply
into the highway, causing a sharp curve,
cutting off a view of the track north of
there to persons coming up the roatl until
they are close upon the railroad track. An
added danger Is caused by the heavy freight
teams which stand In the highway to load
and unload, making it difficult to get by,
or to handle horses If they become fright
ened. The. testimony was completed about :l
o'clock Saturday afternoon. The commis
sioners then went down by themselves to
take a final look at the ground, and on
their return made a verbal report, the sul
stance of which was that, while as commis
sioners they could not negotiate with the
railroad company, in their opinion a rea
sonably safe highway could be built by the
board of selectmen west of the railroad
track as It now stands ; that the four houses
of Austin, Moynihan, the Aheani estate
and John Houghton at the foot of the hill,
all of which stand on town land, be remov
ed, the road-bed raised and crowtletl back
into the bank to the extreme west line of
the survey, going from thence down past
the entrance to the Wootl road and the six
or seven houses standing just below there,
crowding well up to the line of those houses
and probably cutting Into the lower one,
taking out the Kilcy house nnd barn, which
are also in the highway, cutting off the
point already spoken of, taking out the
Dundou house, and returning to the pres
ent road-bed just below that point. The
commissioners also recommended that the
road-bed be filled In antl Improved all the
way down to Aleck Allen's, and that a
high board fence be built from the foot of
the hill at the coal yard down to the curve
below the Itlley premises. The- commis
sioners would suspend action to give the
selectmen a chance to negotiate with the
railroad and construct such a roadway as
was suggested, but If no action was taken
within a reasonable time they should go
entirely outside the present survey and or
der the construction of such a road as In
their judgment the public good requires.
This plan contemplates giving the rail
road company the use of the land now oc
cupied by It, and It will of course be ex
pected that In return for this concession
the company will act generously In the
matter of a mutual arrangement with the
selectmen for the proposed highway Im
provement. In reporting the testimony given It should
have been said that Mr. Charles J. Day of
Oreenfield, Mass., the civil engineer of the
Kitchburg railroad, located at that place,
gave valuable testimony In regard to what
was required and what could bo done. It
may be added also, that Mr. Day, whoso ser
vices were procured by A. G. Allen and
John Hunt for the petitioners, madoacare
f ul survey of ihu territory and submitted a
carefully drawn plan, showing how a sat
isfactory highway of easy grade may bo
built from the foot of the hill at the coal
yard, taking out the four houses sioken
of, crossing the Iloyal Wood road at Gui-heen'-s,
going through his premises, as
cending the bank to the Wood Apt, and
thence on and down to tho level of the
present highway. Mr. Day's estimate Is
that such a road can bo built for $5000.
It Is evident that the result of this Inves
tigation and hearing by tho commissioners
lias emphasized more strongly than ever
before the dangerous state of things which
exists at this point. To those who are
compelled to use the Vernon roatl, It seems
ii ko an outrage that such a state of thliiL-s
should cxl.t. Mght pleasure travel can
readily go over Prospect hill, but for loaded
teams this Is an unjust burden and Is a
direct discouragement to Vernon, South
union and Xorthlleld trade. A way out
of the illllleiilly having thus been opened
up, and the commissioners propoilng to act
with a due and cautious regard for the
good of the town, and with a disposition to
make the expense as light as possible, there
can bo no question that the selectmen will
proceed to act promptly In accordance with
their suggestions. Universal public senti
ment will require that nothing less than
this bo done.
Col. Hooker states, for the selectmen,
that nn early opportunity will be taken for
consultation with tho Central Vermont
management, and that the basis to be pro
posed by the selectmen on which to make
the required improvements will be that of
an equal division of the costs between the
town and railroad company.
ANOTHER HIGHWAY HEARING.
Nlmll Tlirrr ljr n llililKr nt Went Hum.
Tlie court eommlsson appointed for that
purpose began yesterday morning its ses
sions on a petition for the construction of
a highway and bridge across the West riv
er at a point just above the Stlckney brook
bridge, to the granite quanles. The peti
tion was signed by some 15 or liO freehold
ers of West Dummerston and Urattlcboro,
who claim that the public convenience antl
the good of property holders in that vicin
ity demand accommodation of this kind.
On assembling yesterday morning the com
mission, which consists of Hon. Lewis
Walker and Hon. J. L. Huttcrfielil of
Grafton and H. C. Lane, Esq., of West
minster, looked over the ground. In the
afternoon they met at the office of Water
man, Martin & Hltt and the hearing began.
About a dozen witnesses were examined,
among them being Dr. H. D. Holton, Dr.
James Conlantl, John Taft, 1. 11. Taft, W.
S. McKenney and D. J. Bailey. The evi
dence of these witnesses tended to show
that the convenience of property holders,
ot the traveling public, and of the quarry
men and their families, required that such
a roadway and bridge be constructed. It
was shown that some L'O or 23 school chil
dren who live on the east side of the river
attend school about one-half mile from the
west bank of the liver, ami that they are
obliged to either cross the river In a boat
or go up to the railroad bridge and cross on
the ties. It was also shown that since the
Lyons granite company began the develop
ment of their quarry the grand list of the
granite company has Increased from $S00
to $2o,000. It was also claimed that on
account of the lack of facilities for reach
ing school, post-ollice, stores, etc., quarry
men with families could not be persuaded
to locate there, and for this reason so good
a class of help could not be secured as
would otherwise be the case. If a bridge
was built, the advocates of the bridge ar
gued, It would open up a large number of
available building lots on the west side of
the river, inducing a gootl class of men to
locate there, and permanently Increasing
both the population and the value of prop
erty. The hearing on the part of the pe
titioners was continued this forenoon.
The position taken by the town In op
posing the bridge project will be, In sub
stance, that a bridge Is not needed; that
the granite company, which Is the leading
financial Interest to be affected by It, are
not petitioners; that nearly all their busi
ness is done by rail; that the class of help
employed Is not by nature of a permanent
kind, would not In any case build and own
houses; that to accommodate the school
children a separate district will be estal
lisliedj that there Is a bridge across the
river only two miles above, and to burden
the town with the cost of another one would
be unjust, and that when a new one is
built It should be in connection with or
near the railroad bridge so as to accommo
date the village of West Dummerston.

DEATH OF MBS. HARMS.
The death of Mrs. Mary Harris took
place at the home of her daughter, Mrj.
Charles Alexander, In Guilford, at an early
hour on Tuesday morning at the age of
nearly 00 years. Mrs. Harris was the widow
of the late Erastus Harris of Chesterfield,
N. II., vhere the whole of her active life
was spent. In their advancing years Mr.
and Mrs. Harris removed to Brattleboro,
where Mr. Harris died. Mrs. Harris, fa
miliarly known to her relatives as "Aunt
Polly," was the oldest In a family of three
children, the other two being sons. Of
these Chauncey Stone died In 1842, and
the remaining brother, who was one of the
most noted physicians and surgeons of the
the South anil Southwest, tiled In Xew
Orleans In 1870. Mrs. Harris was the
mother of six children, three of whom
Frank II., a prominent resident of Brattle
boro, Warren, and Mrs Marvin, are dead.
The remaining children are Fred II. Harris
of Brattleboro, Mrs. Alexander of Guilford
and Mrs. White of St. Paul. The mother
was a remarkable specimen of strong wom
anhood, both physically and mentally.
She was a woman of decided convictions, a
faithful and helpful wife, mother and
neighbor, and a positive force In whatever
she undertook to do. It Is a singular fact
that the death of Mrs. Alexander's mother
took place at 1 o'clock on Tuesday morn
ing, while that of her husband's father oc
curred In Brattleboro only two hours later,
both at a venerable age, after a long period
of physical weakness. Mrs. Harris's fu
neral was belli at Guilford on Wednesday
morning, at the homo of Mr. Alexander.
The burial was In Brattleboro.

DEATH OP W. II. AL.EXA.NDEE.
A striking ami memorable figure In the
local history of llr.ittleboro passed away
in the death on Tuesday morning of Wil
lard Huntington Alexander at lili long-time
home on Canal street. Mr, Alexander had
been a resident of Urattlcboro since 18.11.
For many years previous to that he had
lived In Chesterlleld, X. II., having grown
up in that town from his childhood. His
birth, however, took place in Montague,
Mass., to which place his father removed
after living a few years in Chesterfield,
coming originally from Winchester, N. H.
Mr. Alexander was born Sept. 14, 1800.
He was one of the 11 children of Kbene
zerand Ithoda (Scott) Alexander. He left
his father's home at the age of 11 years to
live with Capt. Oliver llrown of Revolu
tionary fame. As the boy grew toward
manhood lie taught school for a number of
years, and entered finally into an agree
ment to euro for the old folk, three In num
ber, during their lifetime, for the farm.
The signing of a note, lion ever, brought
him to linaneial disaster, and he lost the
farm, but subseipieully leased It ami fulfill
ed his contract to the satisfaction of the
old people and their friends. Hit mirriage
to Kunlce I,. Seott, who survives him, took
place March !!, 18'JII, and it was on the
Chesterlield farm that their family of sev
en children were born and reared. In
18.11, as already stated, Mr. Alexander re
moved to Itrattleboro, building the house
on Canal street which has ever since been
his home. At one time lie was the owner
of nearly the whole tract now known as
"Cemetery hill," and took the first steps
toward opening it up as a residence portion
of tlie village, in conversation recently
Mr. Alexander stated that when he bought
the tract there was only one house stand
ing upon it. He umsI the laud for a mar
ket garden, hut in due time laid out and
opened Prospect and Washington streets,
presenting them to tlie town, getting his
return in the land sold for building lots.
He has been best known to tlte present
generation ns a market-gardener on the
well-known tract of land owned by him on
the road to the Hunt farm, a mile south of
the village. Tills business he continued
witit success up to the end of his active
Alexander has been several times
honored witli public olliee, serxing as town
grand juror for four years, and as a mem
ber of tlie board of bailiffs for tlie same
length of time. No man ever had a more
active interest in all community affairs
than did he. He was a man distinctively
of his own ideas on all public ipiestlons
and expressed himself upon them with en
tire fearlessness. For a long term of years
no village or school meeting was complete
without ids presence. He invariably occu
pied a seat well toward the front, where his
full head of white hair was a conspicuous
object, and where lie was ready to join in
whatever discussion came up. His speech
es were sltort, but always to the point.
Whether one enjoyed them depended upon
whether the old man was upon ids or upon
tlie opposing side. Oftentimes, in a cer
tain temper of tlie public mind, he swayed
a public meeting almost at will, antl many
is the nun of tar greater pretentious as an
orator who has felt the sting of his abrupt
thrusts of sarcasm. He had a great love
for children and the children in their turn
looked to him as their friend. There are
few Urattlcboro readers who will not recall
as a familiar sight the old man driving
through our streets with Ids wagon or
sleigh tilled with merry school children.
To discuss all sides of Mr. Alexander's
character would be an impossible task, but
it would be easy to fill a long chapter with
characteristic anecdotes anil illustrations.
Willie it would not be pleasant to recall
all of his ways, and manner of speech, to
Ids credit it must be said that he undoubt
edly possessed a deep and innate hatred of
everything that savored of religious cant,
and that this was responsible for no little
of tlie bmsipieness which was sometimes
offensive. That ho possessed genuine
kindness of heart his thoughtfulncjs for
the poor, the aged and the stricken, abund
antly testifies. Ho was a regular attend
ant at the Universalist church, but in Ids
latter days had come to feel, as he express
ed himself to his friends, "a firm belief in
an unconcious rest" to which ho was about
to pass. All arrangements for the end of
his life had been made, and instructions
for ids funeral had been given, with as
much composure as though ho was going
upon a journey. Dentil resulted from the
natural decline of old age. He has, how
ever, shown a remarkable vitality, having
been often thought to be at the point of
death within the past two or three years.
Seven children were born to Mr. nnd
Mrs. Alexander, of whom four now sur
vive Charles K., of Gullloril, Serotia, who
has faithfully cared for her parents in their
declining years, John F., a well-known
manufacturer at Saxtons Iilver, and Frank
IS., now resident in tho South. Henry W.,
another of their children, is well remem
bered as a prominent music teacher, as Is
also Elijah S., a successful Chicago busi
ness man, over whose large estate protract
ed litigation grew. The seventh child died
In early life. A sister of Mr. Alexand
er, Mis. Scott, is still living lu Montague,
Mass., at tlie age of 82,
Mr. Alexander was a life-long Democrat
of the most pronounced type. In early
life ho was a member of tlie Congrega
tional church, but left that church before
his removal to Itrattleboro.
The celebration of the golden wedding
anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander
took place in 1871), anil was a happy event
which is well remembered by the largo
company who were present.
The funeral was held at tho house yes
terday afternoon, attended by tho Jtevs.
