It 1s good news for all of Now Kng Innd that the New York, New Haven ifc Hartford and thu I'ennsylvania railroad Interests are planning to de velop liostun into one of the world's greatest ports. The acqul&itlon of 730 aeres of water front land along tho Neponstt rlver side of SQiiantum and In Uorchestor bay are proparatory to great enterprises. Mlllions of dollars will be spent in widenlng and deepen Ing thc harbor, buildlng addltions for freight, and the co-oporatlon of all the steamshlp interests Is as&nred.

Tho ques tion, however, was idcntlcal with the government case, being simply thls: Is the Northern Seenritles company, by virtue of owning a eontrolling ln terest in the Grent Northern and Northen I'aciflc roads, parallel and coinpeting lines, acting in restralnt of , ulatlon of Cuba and the comparativo trade?

The two de cislons are apparently at varlanco, but both will probably be passed along for llnal settlement In the United States Supreme court.

Doolev " thought " and it present ramblcs, the " Kables " and the " Self Made " letters which greet the eyo on every hnntl. American humor seemlngly is at low ebb, but Thomas IJailey Al drlch, in the Century for August, honi out the hopo that the present condl tlon Is only temporary, when he says: " American humorlsts are nearly as ephemeral as the flowers that bJofcm in the spring. Each generatlon has Its own crop, and, as a rule, inslsts on cultlvatlng its own klnd, That of 18C0, If it were to break Into blossom at tho present moment, would prob ably bo left to fade upon the stem. Humor Is a delicato shruu, with the passlng hcctlc ilush of time. Tho current topic variety is especially subject to very early frosts, as Is also the dlnlect spccles.

Chlcago Dally News, The Labor Unlons Agaln, Thc worst upholders of class ills tinctlon nie the labor unlon tnon, who are seeking to make themselves a prlvileged class by denylng Inhcrent and innlienahle rlghts to non-nnlonists. The nctlon of I'resident Hooscvelt in not Ilinchlng and in liitting the centre hard ln tlie situation ln the govern nienl printing oince Is being generally cotnmended, outside of thc unlon ranks. All asslstant forcman foiuul that the prlnters who were In tho govern nient odlce were not dolng a fair day's work. They were simply graftors on the government. Ho tried to brlng them up to tho ntnndard. They ex pellcd hlni from tho unlon and then secured liis dlschargo on the ground that he was not a niombur of tho unlon. Tlie case was brought to tho ntten tlon of Presldcnt Hoosevelt, who or dered the forcinnn relnstated and made a forceful stntement to tho bel llgerents ln the printing olllco by call Ing their attention to tlie Judgment of the coal Mrike commission, in which it is stated that no person should be discrimlnated against on account of membershlp or non-memberFhlp in any labor organization; that he was lieart ily ln nccord with thls judgment, and that there was no objectlon to the em ployes of tlie government printing of fice constitutlng themselves into a unlon if they so dcslre, but that no rules or re&olutlons of that union would be permltted to over-ride the laws of the Unlted States whicli it was tho sworn duty of the I'resident to en force. The Washington correspondent of the New York Trlbune says tho rules of the unlon go so far as to make lt obligatory for mcnibers to obey the sccret laws of tho labor union even to the extent of dlsobeylng the publlc laws of the federal union. One of the recent scandals in New Vork city comes In the revelatlon that contractors are held up by tho labor unlon leaders who demand a large graft thousands of dollars under throat that they will stop work which Is under a time Hmit contract. Per haps the most despicablo of the many Intolerable actlons attempted by labor unlons recently Is seen In tho attempt to keop members out of the natlonal guard, and to boycott the volunteer soldler who has simply performed hls sworn duty. Cuban Soldlers Grab. The Cuban soldlers who fought for llberty against Spanlsh rule are now ready to Indulgo ln a grab game. An attempt is being made to negotiate a loan of $35,000,000 to pay the soldlers or thelr services. and Gen. Gomez. chairman of the commission dealing with the matter, believes that eventu nlly $00,000,000 will be needed. How serious a matter thls is for Cuba is seen ln the statement that $33,000,000 would mean $L'3 per ca'pita of lnterest bearing debt, as conipared with n slm ilar obllgation of less than $12 per capita in thls country. ln vlew of the charactcr of a large part of the pop 1 lno pny 01 man Knerals an" coioneis nt ?iu,uuu anu upwanift, whlle the pri vates expect to receivo $900 eacli for two and oue-half years' sorvice. Un- dcr the Platt amendment tho Unlted States has a right to prevent Cuba from gettlng beyond her depth In a forelfin debt. and the conditlon may become so serious as to require tho in terventlon of our government. When Is a man drunk? When he has taken a drlnk is the flrst defini tion and the gamut run&- all tho way to when ho is unconscious, the Inter mediate stages including staggering, (10111)10 vision, asphasia, and a variety of othor symptoms. Probably tho " bartender's gulde " nilght be found In tho fqllowlng lines resuscltated from " gi'andmother's scrap book " by a corresiKjndont of tho Woodstock Standard: " Not drunk Is he who from tho ftoor Can rlse ncnln and drlnk onco more; But drunk ls he who prostrato lles, And can nelther drlnk nor rlse." Tledlleld Proctor's admlrlng press con stltutents seem to be endeavorlng to force hls good polnts to the publlc notlce by slyly plnclng extra thick shcets of euloglstlc cardbdard underneath the venerable senator's hnlf-tone which hns become somewhat battered.

Will Be Opened for Buildlng Purposes Two Streets and Llne of Electrlc Cars Park with Oak Grove. More good news for Brattleboro! Another step In the dcvclopment and progrcss Is recorded thls weok in tho sale by Honry O. Clark to M. C. Meagher & Co. of Iloston. through R J. Ilalley & Co.'s agency, of the largo trart of land, known ns tho old camp ground, off South Canal street, and adjolnlng the proportles of C. K. Allen and Mrs. h. K. Fuller at Pine Helghts. Another stretch of land, betweon Canal street and the camp ground plot has also been bought of C. 13. Allen. It ls the design of tho purchasers to boom thls f.ectlon for both resldentlal and mnnufacturing purposes: The land adjoining Mrs. Fuller's. a total tract of about 13 acrcs, will bo laid out into deslrable buildlng lots. It Is deslgned to have the sonthcrn portlon available for manufacturlng plants, and tho present plans contemplate pre sorvlng the western sectlon, including the oak grove and the llly pond, for a park of some 10 or more acres. Negotlations are in progress to in- duco one mnnufacturing concern to erect lts factory and to carry on its business in tho southern sectlon. Two streets. will be laid out, extcnding from South Canal to South Main street. It is planncd to have the trolley line ex- tended through one of these streets tq connect with a branch which lt is pro posed to extend to the Souto factory on Vernon street. The streets are now belng surveyed, and wlthin a short timo about -10 men, with 10 teams, will begin tho work of gradlng the streets nnd sldewalks. It hns long been a recognlzed fact that the largest, most available and most deslrable sectlon for Brattle boro's growth was ln the dlrection of thc camp ground, and nll people who are desirous of secing the village ex pand will rejoice in this stroke of en terprise on the part of Meagher & Co. This is a particularly flne quarter for buildlng purposes, the land belng high and dry, commanding a beautiful vlew of the Connecticut valley, both north and south, with the village, the rlver and Wantastiquet mountaln ln the lmmcdiatc foreground.

Complalnt was made Jiily 2S to Mrs. Jennle H. l'owors that on the 2.1th of that month Mrs. Andrew Carponter, llv Inp In Chesterlleld, nbout a mlle from the Centre. had cruelly beaten her daufihter, Flora, 12.

The mother sald she had whlpped the Klrl with a vwltch, and both she nnd the Klrl dcclared that therc wero no brulses on the chlld's body. An cxamlnatlon by Mrs. Powers showed that both arms were blaek and blu In eolor from the shoulder to the elbow. and that both legs were also lilackened from the knee to the nnkle. There were ln addltlon sev eral brulses on the chlld's body. The mother was brouRht Into eourt nt Chesterlleld Monday before Justlce Slade. Mrs. Carpenter appeared very stubborn and declared that she had beaten the chlld, but not enoiiRh to hurt her. After belnB uest!oned repeatedly she llnally ilended gullty and was bound over for appearance before the grand Jurv nt the November term of court. It Is expected'that ball of $UJ will be fur nlshed. I.awyer Madden, who prose ented the ciise, told the woman that If he had evldcnee between now and tho eonvenliiR of court that she had nsain strnck the chlld, the daughter would be tnken from her.
