TWO VERMONT OASES,
Lawyer Cross's Recovery.
He Wai Dead to All Intent of the Lair.
Albert P. Cross of St. Albans, for years
one of tho leading attorneys lu northern
Vermont, was some six months ao sud
denly attacked with Insanity, which was
believed to be Incurable. He has been at
the asylum for tho Insane at Waterbury,
and now conies the report that he has en
tirely recovered and will return to his fam
ily and business.
Mr. Cross's recovery Is one of tho most
singular on record. Ho had trouble with
his eyes from birth, the focus not being
right. Ileforo ho became Insane ho was
treated In vain for inflammation of the
membrane of the eyes. After Insanity de
veloped It was decided that he was suffer
ing from softening of the brain, which Is
Incurable. His affairs were therefore taken
Into the probate court and his estate ad
ministered upon precisely as if he had been
dead. Mr. Cross's trouble with Ills eyes
has entirely disappcaied, uot only tho In
flammation of the membrane, but also the
dlllleulty with the focus, which dated back
to his liirtli: and nil his mental faculties
are restored to their normal condition.
Ho will now go back to the world like a
man risen from the dead. All who read
these lines will wish him many years of
health and prosperity, after his terrible ex
perience. A Crow Bar Through His I load.
The Wonderful Nurtlval of n Caveli-
dlsti Man Ilecnllrd.
Tho recently-reported account of the
death of a man In Newark, N. .1.. who
lived a number of years with two Inches of
knife blade penetrating his brain, calls to
mind an interesting Vermont case, which
was so remarkable that It was not credited
until ei'her actually observed or sworn to
by eminent physicians. Phlneas Gage was
a young mail of 25 employed as foreman
of a blasting gang on tho Central Ver
mont railroad in Cavendish in 1848. He
was in the net of tamping a charce when
his iron struck fire on the rock and an ex
plosion occurred. The tamping bar, three
feet and seven Inches long, one and one
fourth inch in diameter and weighing over
13 pounds, was projected upward, passing
completely through Ids head, falling several
rods behind him, where it was picked up,
covered witii Mood and particles of brain.
At first his hands and fret moved convul
sively, but after a few minutes his men
carried him homo In a cart, and ho was
able to sit up with slight assistance and to
walk up the stairs at his house. He was
conscious, but Very weak from loss of
blood. An examination of the wound
showed that the Iron entered the left side
of the face by the pointed end, immcdiate-
le anterior to the angle of the lower jaw,
passed oldiquely .upward and obliquely
backward, emerging in the median line
back of the frontal bone. Tho bones were
broken in small fragments and forced up
ward and outward. The hole had much
the shape of an Inverted funnel. The
frontal bone was badly fractured, leaving
an irregular, oblong opening in the skull
two inches one. way and three and one-half
Inches the other, through which the pulsa
tions of the brain were easily seen and
felt. The wound was dressed and after a
struggle of several weeks (Sago recovered.
His death occurred from epilepsy In San
Francisco nearly 10 years after the acci
dent. During these years lie enjoyed good
health, and spent some time in South
America, but his mind was weak and child
ish. The skull ami the Iron are now in
the museum of the medical department of
Peculiar Proceeding at Itutlanrt.
A special village meetlns was held at
Rutlan I.Monday to raise funds to pay out
standing orders and current expenses until
the city government takes effect April 1.
Tho meeting voted to license the trustees
to pay all hlll, but refused any appropria
tions. Subsequently the trustees met and
and voted to draw no more orders. This
leaves the village in a worse shape than
Vermont I. mils.

Much has been written In praise of Ver
mont scenery In the summer when the
hills are crowned with foliage and flowers.
But what more picturesque than the same
hills In winter? The cold gray sky looks
down upon those eternal hills wrapped In
snow. Here and there a solitary tree
stands like a sentinel watching the valley
below. Tho evergreen pines and hem
locks and balsams In groups anil clusters
make a striking contrast witii tho lleecy
snow. And when moonlight adds Its
charms, what a sparkling from the frozen
streams. Above the sighing of the wind
conies tho sound of merry voices and the
chiming of the sleigh-bells. No wonder
that to the tons and daughters of tho
firoon Mmintaln state, away from home,
in the sunny South or on the prairies of the
West, tho pleasantest memories aro those

THE ELE0TRI0 RAILROAD,
A letter from cx-Judgo Shea,
Who Holds that there Aro Legal Obita
olos whloh Will Prohibit Its Construo
tion, Introductory Note by lion, n. II. Harris.
To the Editor of The Phtcnix:! hand
you herewith, for publication, a letter writ
ten by ex-Chief Justice Shea of New York
city, whose summer homo is in this village,
touching the. proposed trolley railway here.
Judge Shea's conceded great ability, long
and varied experience at tho bar and on
the bench, and his eminent rank In the
profession, fully justify the high respect in
which his legal opinions aro held. You
will perceive that ho more than sustains
the contention In my letter of two weeks
ago, that there are some things that even a
stale legislature cannot do; and one of
these things is arbitrarily taking rights and
property from a person, Air a community of
persons, and giving them, or the use of
them, lo other person or persons for private
gain, without the consent of or compensa
tion to the person or persons so despoiled,
Jly such unjust encroachments on Indi
vidual and public rights on a large scale,
and frequently under cover of bought leg
islative and judicial sanction, and on tho
specious and much abused pretext of doing
a public service, some of our great over
shadowing and most obnoxious monopolies
have grown up, whose sudden accumula
tions of enormous wealth In the hands of a
few have tended so powerfully to create
the widespread unrest and discontent that
Is abroad in the land, menacing the very
foundations on which society rests. And
It Is because of these Indisputable facts that
the present trend of legislation and of judi
cial decisions, both state and national, is
setting so irresistibly toward a fuller rec
ognition and protection of popular rights
against all assailants. And this means, In
popular apprehension and largely In fact, a
bulwark of defence of the many against
the organized and unscrupulous greed and
tyranny of the few.
Robbery, or any other form of Injustice,
undercover of perverted law, Is iiiliuitely
more dangerous and corruptive of public
integrity and morals than when done in
open defiance of all law. Therefore no cit
izen having at heart the well-being of pos
terity can afford, for the sake of a seeming
present good, to countenance the Infrac
tion of any fundamental principle of freo
government of equal rights and protection
for all of liberty under law or, in the In
comparably terse words of Abraham Lin
coln, "A government hy the people, of the
people and for the people."

Judge Mien's Letter.
Nkw Yoitu, Januiry 3, 1803, I
l!0j West 4llth Street. J
on. 11. D. Harris,
My Dear Sir: This morning's post
brings me your letter of yesterday's date.
1 need no delay to enable mo to offer you
answers to the law questions you suggest:
for the general subject, in Its various
phases, Is familiar, to me; and practically
so fur many years. In Its relation to Brat
tlelioro I have given It, out of mere inter
ested curiosity, a special consideration; and
long since discarded such a project as one
not suited to the exigencies of our village
at this stage. It appeared to me not a
prudent enterprise or investment; and
without sulllcient immediate beiietil to the
people of llrattleboro to encourage them
generally to aid by becoming stock-holders.
1 speak of llrattleboro, of course, lu Its
actual circumstances of peculiarly attract
ive local advantages, as a choice residential
village. Whenever it shall begin lo appear
that it is changing its character Into a busy
centre ot tuaufaciures and growing trade
and that the beauty of Its village life Is to
be thus suiwisedcd, then commercial Inter
ests must be allowed to pervail. I appre
hend that It will, perhaps at no very dis
tant day, be with us as is the fate of many
of our fair New England villages all yield,
at last, to the Insatiate desires of material
progress; and when Brattlelioro is brought
to that period then, but not till then, rapid,
commodious and cheap transit will bo
needed to bring distant parts of the Inhab
itated region Into easy intercourse with the
business centres of the village. Let us
however, not anticipate thai which time
may make inevitable; but let us enjoy as
Ion; as we can the. blessings which nature
has bountifully set about us.
As to the more practical questions of rel
atlve legal rights that you put, I answer:
No such local railway can be constructed or
maintained upon any street without the
previous consent of each owner of the lands
fronting the route proposed. Slate leglsla-
tlon cannot directly confer the power upon
the railway corporation. Tho privilege to
acquire must not only bo committed in
clear terms by positive statute-law and ade
quale compensation thereby provided for,
but the attainment of the right Itself must
be decreed In a judicial proceeding brought
directly on behalf of the corporation pray
ing for the privilege. 1 ho adjoining owner
has an easement in the highway and that
Ispropeity; an interest In real estate not
to oe burdened by a new encumbrance,
The examples in railway exploits in the
city of New York which prospered boldly
and lawlessly tor a snort tune oner no in
ducemeiits for like aggressions elsewhere
rather serve as warnings. Tho proprietor
ship of the highway or the streets In this
metropolis Is peculiar; and it has given
occasions to Ingenious persons to start nu
merous novel law-questions; especially of
late years, on tho part of surface ami of
elevated railway corporations by which
the legal redress, finally adjudged to the
owners, was delayed, lho ancient rule.
after too many avoidances of the proper Is
sue. Is now settled in compliance with the
mandate of the National constitution that
the use of private properly shall not bo
taken without full compensation to bo first
paid; and then only for proper public oy.
lects desirable for uie nubile beneut. mi
Is a rule of law under the Constitution of
the United States, and tho decisions of our
highest national courts. . It applies to
rights of easement lu our public streets as
firmly as it does to exclusively private
nrumises: and to that provision of the Con
stltutlon state legislation h subject. If
contrariwise, the legislative act is of no
force or effect. In view of the heavy out
lay which must be incurred to acquire the
right to occupy tho highway of the streets
whether It be acquired by agreement or
by eminent domain It is not probable that
pru lent men will put money towards the
promotion or tne venture, i nave no opin
Ion to express about tho amount of business
which lho railway can expect, nor about
nrofits to accrue from It.
It would be 'extra hazardous' for any
one to begin const: noting before the right
to mo tho bed of the highway has been
thus acquired: for each oiitceraml stock'
holder of tho corporation, as well as the
contractors and promoters, could be dealt
Willi Individually as a trespasser, l no cor
poratlon, till so entitled, would bo without
right to use tho bed of a highway. It
would have no more lawful right to do so
than It would have to go In upon the
cronnds of private premises opposite,
would scarcely need an Injunction to secure
redress except tor tne convenience ot
avoiding recourse to physical personal
force In ejecting tho trespasser while In
the very act. It Is my opinion that even If
the trespassers should succeed In laying
rails, or starting any other part of the rail
Way, the owners of opposite private prem
ises can, of their own natural and lawful
right and forcibly If necessary remove
I apprehend, however, that tho project
must drop out of contemplation, unless It
Is encouraged by the chief owners along
the proposed routes. It certainly cannot
be constructed lu defiance of their wishes
their absolute lawful rights cannot be In
vaded and successfully overridden. They
have but legally and earnestly to assert
those rights. Yours very faithfully,
