Two big two-horse loads of beer barrels
and kegs were an unusual sight in Main
street Tuesday forenoon. The goods came
from the Matthews farm in New Hamp
shire, near the suspension bridge, where
they had been stored since the successful
raids were made upon the island brewery
last fall. The beer and ale in the barrels
had become sour and of no value, and the
proprietors of the brewery got possession
of the receptacles by paying Sheriff Tuttle
of Keeue a sum sufficient to settle all ex
penses. The fines resulting from tho raids
had been paid previously. The barrels
and kegs, about 40 in number, were
shipped from here to tho browing compan
ies in Springfield and Holyoke.
THE VILLAGE MEETING.
It Is n Time hen I lie llmpnliallilllly
Itesia with Kuril llullvliliutl Voter tn
lln IIU Itnly.
A diligent effort is being made to obscure
the issue which is involved In the election
of village officers next Tuesday. It is en
tirely true that there are personal consider
ations which, at another time, might load
many cltlxens to oppose the old board.
Several disagreements and local grievances
have arisen during the year, like Uio-'EiU-y-vllle
sewer question, questions, about the
lire department, conilict of opinion and
policy between the bailiffs ainl the select
men, and so on. But no one of these is
really important, and when all Is said every
voter knows perfectly well that the real
Issue Is over the control of the rum trade
aud the light against the island brewery
nuisance. It was this which animated and
enthused the majority which carriod the day
in the caucus. Jt is answer enough to all the
special pleading on the subject to say that
the selection of the caucus board of bailiff's
was made openly and in person by brewery
There is not the slightest need that their
attempt at overturn and control shall be
successful. If voters who believe in what
the "law and order" ticket represents
come to the polls that tickut will be elected
by a strong majority. The strength of the
other side was shown in the caucus. The
strength of "law aud order" sentiment in
Uie Brattleboro community, as compared
with that vote, is throe to one.
The question, and the only ques'lou, is
whether each individual voter will consti
tute himself a committee of one to see
that he himself does his duty. Come to
the polls aud vote for what you believe to
be right and the work will be done. Mere
ly as a matter of business and cold calcu
lation the village of Brattleboro cannot af
ford to have word sent out to its neighbors
that its people do not want the village kept
clean, and that they do not support their
officers when they try to enforce the laws.
Mr. Hny's strong lul True Wiinl.
Editor of The l'linnis: Sic- Allow
me to say that I hope the absorbing inter
est in the Spanish war will not hide the
importance of the local issue made up for
next Tuesday's village meeting Wilhout
reflecting upon the manner of nomination,
and certainly no: upon the character of the
caucus ticket for bailiffs, upon which are
men of strong temperance principles, there
ought to be, and 1 have enough confidence
in this village to think that there will be,
a most emphatic endorsement and election
of the fitly character ize.l "Law and Order"
ticket, headed bv Messrs. Emerson and
Fleming. The past year has witnessed,
beyond any of the nearly :i years of my
residence here, an honest, unselfish, thor
ough and courageous effort to maintain our
standard of life at a high level of safely
and moral propriety and secure for our
citizens the privileges of the river, island
and mountain, from which they are now
virtually cutoff by an unmitigated nuisance.
The question of the hour with us is, how
ever, one not only of privilege, but of rep
utation and character. Personal feelings,
and smaller Issues that can wait or be
otherwise settled, will, 1 am sure, be put
one side by a true local, as by a sound na
tional public spirit. It has been demon
strated that we can have a clean and or
detly town, if we want it, in spite of
evaders or breakers of the law. What I
want to see is an unmistakable demons
tration that we do want it, and insist upon
having it and are putting our confidence
for it in men who have been thoroughly
tested and have abundantly earned our
grateful and hearty support.

About 150 women responded to the call
of the local chapter of th'- Daughters of
the American Hevolution for a meeting in
Festival hall Wednesday to organir.- a so
ciety to help care for the families of the
men of this town who are to go to war and
to provide petsoual comforts for the men
when they are lu the Held.
The meeting was called to order by the
chapter regent, Mrs. J. J. Estey, who out
lined briefly the plan of the society. Hev
C. O. Day then nudo a few remarks, set
ting fortli the need of such a society in
this town and encouraging the Indies for
their generous response to the call. Sev
eral of the ladles also made Interesting re
marks upon tho subject under considera
tion. It was then decided to organize a society
for rtllcf work, tho name ot which shall be
the Brattleboro Soldiers' Aid society. The
following officers were elected: President,
Mrs. J. J. Estey: vice president, Mrs. J.
G. Ullery; secretary, Mrs. F. L. Smith:
treasurer, Mrs. G. F. Barber.
A committee made up of representatives
from the different churches and societies
was then chosen to plan out the work for
the society and act as an executive and fi
nance committee. P consisted of Mrs.
James Dalton. Unitarian, chairman; Mrs.
Geo. Tyler. Episcopal: Mrs. Burchard,Bai
tist: Mrs. F. E. Buamau.Methodist: Mrs. H.

boro: Mrs. Evans, Baptist church in West
A generous collection was taken to start
a fund, aud It is hoped that everyone will
contribute. Contributions of money from
one cent upwards will be gladly received
to help in the work.
The plan of the society is to do sewing
for the soldiers who are to go to war and
to look out for their families while the men
are awa. The society will continue its
work as long as the war lasts.
Although the bociety was projected by
the Daughters of the American Hevolu
tion, it is earnestly hoped by them that
every woman in town will consider herself
a member. The services and support of
all are asked and every woman will be wel
comed at the meeting of the society. The
next meeting will be held Friday afternoon
at 2 o'clock, when the sewing for the sol
diers will begin. The first "work will be
the making of work-bags for the members
of the Estey Guard.

The notices read in the Brattleboro
churches last Suuday of the meeting to be
held Wednesday afternoon to prepare for
work for the soldiers and their lamilies
brought to men and women who are "in
the fifties," or later along in life, a quick
and Illuminating vision of the times from
'01 to 'tir- when such notices were read at
nearly every Sunday service, and when the
devot'-d women of the North met week by
week to work with nimble fingers for the
cause to which many of them had given
what they held most dear in life. Lint
was scraped, bandages were rolled, mittens
were knitted, many" kinds of clothing were
made, fitod was provided for the sick, and
at frequent intervals boxes and barrels fill
ed as the results ot this work went to the
front the sanitary Commission being
most often the medium of distribution. It
was heart service which those women ren
dered aud their work was not less useful
aud effective than that of the soldiers at
the front The burden of anxious aud
oftentimes, hopeless waiting which thous
ands of the women of both North and
South bravely carried all throuzh the war
required, many and many a tune, a truer
and more enduring quality of heroism than
it did to face a cannonade at the front.
And just so it will be in the coming months
if our troops are called into artive service
and to face the ordinary vicissitudes of

Two former pastors of tho Unitarian
church of Brattleboro were much In evi
dence in Boston Monday morning it was
at a meeting of the Ministerial Union
called to listen to an address by Hev.
Samuel M. Crothers of Cambridge upon
"The Minister as a Moral Leader." In
the courso of Mr. Crottiers's remarks he
said that "the minister should be a man
who stanJs in the light of the church, and
he should make timely application of tlie
eternal truth. Under the present methods,
the average nun is inclined to look upon
the pulpit us having a great deal too much
The meeting was diverted somewhat
from its original pnip se by Hev. Charles
F. Dole of Jamaica Plain, who offered a
resolution urging President McKlnley to
use his lutluence to stop all seizure of the
private property (not contraband of war)
of Spaniards upon the sea, giving his rea
Hev. Frank L. Phaien of Concord, X.
H., opposed the passage of the resolutions
because he thought thl was no time for
the ministers to presume to advise the
President. In this emergency he should
be trusted to do what is best tor the coun
try. He is a Christian gentleman, said
the speaker, aud he has a Christian secre
tary of tlie navy, and they are regardful of
the morals of the nation! Ministerial in
terference during the civil war was one of
the greatest annoyances that President
Lincoln had to contend with.
Mr. Phaien said Uiat he believed the

on the ability of this government to carry
on tlie war. " "It is all right." he contin
ued, "to express our moral convictions,
but it is not right for us to come here and
advise the government as how to carry on
the war. 1 think these resolutions will do
more harm than good." He regretted that

This petition was presented to D. P.
Webster, II. F. Weatherhead and E. H.
Putnam, then selectmen of Brattleboro.
Aug. S, lS'i". and was signed by 35 per
sons, residents of Guilford and Brattleboro.
The petitioners represented that the
highway at the place mentioned was nar
row, crooked aud daugerous. and that it
ought to be surveyed, straightened and
made full legal width, and they requested
that the road be ma-ie three rods wide,
beginning at the corner of Canal and Or
gan streets, adjacent to the residence of
Timothy Fitzgerald, and extending to the
land of H. G. Clark.
The selectmen refused to grant the peti
tion and the matter was carried to tlie
county court. Tlie court appointed O. E.
Butterneld of Wilmington, o. H. Garfield
of Townsheud, aud L. H. Lynde of Dum
mertlon commissioners to ascertain the
facts and report to the court.

SMOOTH AS OIL.

ing Alley I. eft Slimming Creditor Itr.
B. L. Ingalls, proprietor of the Flat
street bowling alley, has left town and his
creditors to tnonrn. Previous to March IS
Mr. Ingalls was a traveling salesman tor
an oil firm in Albany, N. V., and he has
left the impression with his creditors that
he is as "smooth" as the ingredient in
which he dealt.
Ingalte came to Brattleboro in March
and leased the bowling alley in W. II.
Minor's building, which was then con
trolled by a syndicate of six me. The
syndicate's lease had until May 1 to run.
As the time approached for the expira
tion of the lease Mr. Ingalls spoke to Mr.
Minor about continuing the lease for a
year. Mr. Minor objected to having In
galls in tlie building and he informed In
galls to that effect.
On April 20 Mr. Minor had Deputy
Sheriff MeClure serve a writ of ejectmont
on Ingalls. The writ was returnable l.iBt
Tuesday forenoon, but at that time In
galls failed to appear and it is said that he
was carried to Keene, N. H., a few minutes
before the time set for the hearing.
As soon as it was learned that Ingalls
had left town two trustee writs were served
on W. M. Adams in order to hold proper
ty which .Ingalls disposed of to Adams.
This property consists of pool-tables, ci
Tlie writs were in favor of W, II. Min
or, whom Ingalls owes $30 for rent, and
Harry Pratt, proprietor of the American
House, whom Ingalls owes $00 for board.
It is thought that the value of tlie prop
erty held by Adams is sufficient to cover
these two debts.
Ingalls possesses a ring valued at $75,
which Pratt wishes to get as security. He
talked with Ingalls about it last night by
telephone and lugalls agreed to 'sccuro

President Tuttlr of the Jtonlon , Maine
hays It Uonlil Iot I'sy,
A letter was received Wednesday from
President Tuttle of the Boston A- Maine
railroad concerning tlie petition for an
early morning tram north from Springfield,
Mass., to White Hiver Junction, in which
he says that he does not think that the
company would get sufficient return for
rutiuing the train to warrant its putting it
upon the road. It would cost about $1 a
mile to ruu such a train, but it the company
should he guaranteed 50 cents a mile for
running it, he would put it on for four
months as an experiment. Tlie carrying
of the mails is now done on other trains,
and there would be no additional revenue
obtained from the new train from this

The 1st regiment, Vermont Nauonai
Guard, will mobilize on the state camp
grounds adjoining Fort Ethan Allen Ma,
Gen. William H. Gilmore, quartermaster
general, paid a visit to the grounds Weil
uesday. Gen. Gilmore said to a represen
tative that the mobilzition was only a -jties-tion
of a few day. possibly hours. The sev -eral
companies as originally organized art
and have long been thoroughly equippe !
and ready for business. But since each
company was recruited to 101 men. one
half are without uniforms or equipments.
Gen. Gilmore would not approve of their
remaining under canvas for any length ot
time before the issuing of the necessan
camp equipment, aud therefore the exacl
date of the mobilization cannot be given
The war department has been notihed f;
what is required to properly equip the reg,
utent and as soon as Gen. Gilmore is in
formed when it will be forwarded, order
will be issued. The clothing and equip
ment will meet the boys at the camp an 1

believe the orders will be issued before
The recent arrival of Samuel M. Donel
son to live upon Mrs. Thurber's place ins:
above the village, was made pleasant Thurs
day evening by the marriage of his only
daughter, Edith J., to Wm." H. Brown of
Halifax. The sightly house was thrown
open for the occasion, while the immediate
relatives of the contracting parties assem
bled, bringing with them many useful
gifts. At the approach of S o'clock Miss
Dora Donelson of New York city, a lass of
eight summers and a niece of the intend
ed bride, presided at the organ, after which
she retired to accompany with a sister
younger the bridal party and to stand with
them during the ceremony. Her place at
the instrument was taken by Mrs. Asa
Donelson, an organist iu the Baptist
church, an aunt also of the bride. As the
enlivening strains of the march ceased the
contracting parties with their attendants
stood before the officiating clergyman, Hev.
F. S. Smith, while back of them was a
heavy bank of potted plants tastefully ar
ranged. The ceremony was simple, the
occasion joyous and the good wishes man .
Four generations of the Douelsons were in
attendance. Frank Donelson, a brother
of the bride, for several years a baker in
New Yoik city, furnished the wedding
cake most daintily and other luxuries.
Their consumption was enlivened by an
occasional spray of the white kernal, which
rather increased as the evening wore away.
Mr. Brown was reared in Halifax and Mrs.
Brown in Wilmington. Their acquaint
ances in those places, as well as their rela
tives and friends in Brattleboro unite in
wishes for their prosperity and happiness.
