THE DENNINQTON PAGEANT.
Historical Scenes of a Century and a
Half to Do Reproduced August 12, 14,
15 and 16,
Benninfrton In lta early days had tho
most stirring history of any Vermont
town and many of those scones aro to
bo reproduced In. a historical pageant to
bo given by tho peoplo of Bennington
August 12, 14, 15 and 16, In celebration of
tho 150th anniversary of tho sottlomcnt
of tho town. In addition to tho scenes
depleting tho oarly history thero will bo
sovornl Indicative of tho progress and
changes brought by succeeding years
down to tho present day.
Tho historical pageant has long been
extremely popular In Great Britain and
continental Europe. Introduced from
there to this country It has been de
veloped and extended In Its scopo until
It provides oilo of tho most delightful
entertainment featuros ever produced.
Along with tho amusement and scenic
spectacle and splendor It gives an oppor
tunity to seo almost perfect reproduc
tions of dramatic events of history and
In that way gives a knowledgo of his
tory and teaches patriotism as they can
novor bo learned from tho dry pages of
Bennington history Is such that It of
fers n wonderful field for a historical
pageant. In fact the great problom that
confronts tho pageant commltteo Is the
wealth of material available and all of
tt so striking and Interesting that It Is
found necessary to lengthen tho program
In order to cover tho chief events of tho
history of tho towns, which, In many
respects, Is tho history of tho stato of
Vermont, for Bennington was tho parent
town of tho stato and Bennington men
led In tho activity and forco that pro
duced hero from tho New. Hampshire
Grants an Independent commonwealth,
aftorwards admitted to the sisterhood of
Bennington was tho first organized
town In what Is now Vermont and the
first to nchlevo an Individual force
strong enough to tako tho stand It did
In the days when Vermont was In the
making. Tho first sottlcrs of tho town
wero young men from Massachusetts and
Connecticut They wero an active, ear
nest, liberty loving, dare-devil and tur
bulent crowd who knew their rights and
could not bo bluffed not even by the
orders of tho king and much less by the
minions of royal authority on this side
of the ocean. That their leaders were
men of ability Is proved by the outcome
of their efforts.
It was tho men of Bennington who
organized tho opposition to the rich and
powerful colony of New York and who
took the leading part In carrying this
opposition through to success, from the
day when the sturdy pioneers raised a
stuffed catamount on a pole to grin de
fiance at Now York authority to that
other day, 27 years later, when Vermont
became tho first stato added to tho orlg
Inal thirteen. It was at Bennington at
landlord Fay's tavern that tho "beech
seal" was devised and first applied to
the bare back of a York justice. In this
connection it Is well to remember even
at this late day that during tho contro
versy -with New York the New York
peoplo sympathized with the people of
Vermont. The fight of the settlers for
their lands was not with their neighbor
settlers along tho Hudson, but with the
land speculators and politicians " who
fawned around Albany.
It was tho men of Bennington who or
ganized the council of safety which af
terward made Vermont an Independent
republic and maintained that Independ
ence for 11 years. It was under Ben
nington leadership that the towns which
rebelled against the new free stato were
bulldozed Into submission. It was the
"Bennington mob" that later stepped in
and stopped an attempt to divide Ver
mont between New York and New
Hampshire. It was Bennington that fur
nished four-fifths of tho company of
resolute men who rescued Remember
Baker almost from under tho guns of
It was In Bennington in 1773 that the
first declaration of Independence penned
in America was drawn and signed, and
signed chiefly by Bennington men. It
was at Bennington, tho homo of Seth
Warner, that the regiment of Green
Mountain Boys had Its beginning and
Bennington, which furnished moro re
cruits than any other town. It was
from Bennington that Ethan Allen start
ed on that glorious trip resulting In the
capture of Ticonderoga and Crown
It was near Bennington that tho bat
tlo was fought, bearing the namo of tho
town, that proved tho turning point of
tho War of the Revolution and Benning
ton at a moment's notice furnished over
200 soldiers for Stark's army. It was
Bennington which furnished tho subsis
tence and supplies also which made
Stark's victory possible and Bennington
women cooked aniT supplied tho food.
It was Bennington county that fur
nished tho governors of Vermont for 31
of tlie first 42 years that Vermont was a
stato, and not only tho governors but a
largo proportion of the other stato of
ficials. It was at Bennington that tho
first church In tho stato was formed, a
church that still exists. It was at Ben
nington that tho first militia company
of the stato was enlisted and the first
manufacturing entcrprlso In tho state
It was at Bennington that tho first
pottery In America was built and at
Bennington that tho first Iron furnaco
in northern New England was erected
and the first pig iron In America was
smolted. It was In Bennington that tho
first knit underwear factory of any im
portance in tho United States was erect
ed and there that tho business is the
most important industry to this day. It
was at Bennington that tho first stereo
scope was made and thero tho prin
cipal stereoscope factory in tho world Is
This list does not include all, or nearly
all of tho things of noto with which the
namo of Bennington is connected but
merely somo of tho principal ones. The
list could be greatly lengthened. Not
only the moro Important incidents will

Now that the forest planting season
has closed the following summary of tho
nursery stock sold by the state nursery

The total number of trees -sold was
I(3,2u0, an lncreaso ot S.3.500 over 1010.
These went out to 73 different parties
private owners and corporations.
An encouraging awakening occurred
on the west side of tho stato. Whereas
Wlni5or county has formerly led in
this enterprise, Rutland county has this
year planted tho most trees, largely
through the activity of tho Vermont
Marble company and tho Rutland Rail
way, Light 1 Power company. Windsor
county ranlcs second In this respect, tho
most extensive planting being done by
W. D. Woolson, of Springfield; and
Windham county Is third. Considerable
planting was done in Bennington, Essex
and Lamoille counties this year, where
very little interest lias been shown pre
The largest private plantation mad
this year was that of Dr. William Stan
ford Stevens, of Enosburg, whero about
4.1,000 trees were planted, art of whlcl
had been raised on his farm.
Extensive plantations were made also
on the stato lands In Plainfleld and
Sharon and by tho International Pape
company on its Vermont lands.
Up to tho present time tho state nur
sery has been unablo to supply the de
mand for three year old trees, but from
now on it Is expected that practically
unlimited orders can bo filled, as about

Is tho movement called college extension

many parts of tho West Tho beginning
of systematic extension of tho collego to
people remote from collego centers was
made in Vermont last year when Dean

tonslon lecturo courses to bo given by
members of tho faculty of Middlobury
college. Tho movement was well re
celved by tho peoplo from tho first and
thero wore calls for abovo 00 lectures 1
all parts of the stato. Tho courses will
be continued this .year undor tho direc
tion of Prof. IJaymond McFnrland of

nounces an attractive list, of speakers
and subjects. Tho plan Is to givo tho
lectures in groups of five, no locturer ap

Harvesting the Tobacco Crop,
Tobacco cutting in tho ConnocUcut
valley has been begun this week, and by
another week it will be In full sway.
Tho 1911 Now England tobacco crop Is
of unusual Importanco and both packers
and manufacturers aro watching tho
harvest with keen Interest. For several
weeks buyers havo been scurrying
through the more important tobacco
towns. Tho greatest intorest naturally
centres in shaded tobacco, which has
again como Into tho foreground In tho
Connecticut valley, which, exports pre
dict, is to bo tho centre of cigar leaf
production in tho United States, If not
of tho world, Tho 1911 Now England to
bacco area, according to tho department
of agriculture, is 18,900 acres, an Increase
of 4 per cents over last year. Connecti
cut has 14,100 acres, Massachusetts 4500,
Vermont 200 and Now Hampshlro 100.
Tho entire Now England tobacco area,
except a fow hundred acres, lies within
a 20-mllo radius of Sprlngflold, Mass.
Upward of 8000 acres ot tobacco, or moro
than ono sixth of tho Now England
crop, nro grown In Su (field.
Tho 1911 Connecticut vnlley prices aro
as yet a matter ot conjecturo. Mon who
havo grown gray In tho business say
that not since tho Civil war havo tho
big markets of the world been so de
pleted of really good tobacco. Tho de

heavy importations of Sumatra leaf.

FIT2HUOH NOW PRESIDENT.
Succeeds Hays at Head of Central Ver.
mont Road Has Full Charge of Grand
Trunk Lines In New England.
m, rvnirni Vermont I
Railway company met In St. Albans Fri-
day and elected E. H. Fitzhugh president
to succeed Charles M. Hays, resigned,
XIr. Fitzhuch is first vice president of tho
Grand Trunk railway. Tho president of
tho Grand Trunk was oloctod chairman
of the board of directors. Mr. Fitzhugh,
who Is considered to be ono of America's
greatest railroad men, Is president of the
Southern New England road, which Is
building from Palmer to Provldonco. His
election ns president of tho Central Ver
mont makes him th supremo hoad of
tho Grand Trunk lines In Now England.
That there Is need of an ofllclal of
the highest calibre to look after tho In
terests of tho Grand Trunk in Now
England is now well known since the
moves In tho so-called war botweon tho
New Haven and Grand Trunk have been
chronicled In tho public press almost
dally for many months. Mr. Fitzhugh
has been tnklng a leading part in this
war, but Is now In full chargo of tho
situation In New England. Ills nttontlon
probably will be directed at once to a
situation In Burlington that has just bo
como known to the public at largo. A
hearing was held In Burlington July 25
boforo the public Borvlco commission
with reference to the building of tho
proposed new union station for that city.
Tho New Haven was represented by
Genoral Manager Jarvls of tho Rutland
railroad and his attorney, nnd tho Grand
Trunk by Vlco President Fitzhugh and
General Assistant Cy Warman and Gen
eral Manager G. C. Jones of tho Central
Vermont, with attorneys. Plans for tho
proposed stations were submitted by both I
roaus, after which tho hearing was post-
poncd until Aug. 10.
It was then reported that tho Rutland
road was actually filing track locations
on Lake street, Burlington, to reach
which iney wouiu nnvo to cross tno Cen-
tral Vermont lines in their Burlington
yards. It develops that Lako street Is
tho property of the Central Vermont, tho
city having been granted easement rights
only. Moreover, tho Central Vermont
owns nbout $300,000 worth of property on
tho street on which it Is proposed to
built the union station, and which It
would be unable to uso If the Rutland Is
allowed to carry out Its plans.
At the hearing Mr. Fitzhugh conceded
tho necessity for a union station in Bur
lington and offered to build, own and
operate with the Rutland road, but tho
latter railway Insisted that It should not
only dictate the location of tho station,
but should own and operate It, making
tho Central Vermont a tenant. The
answer was that the Grand Trunk would
not surrender any of Its property to a
The Burlington situation closely resem
bles the bitter fight carried on in Iirnt-
tleboro, nnd involves the same principle.
But both, according to railroad men, are
but pawn moves in tho war between the

The Anglo-Japanese. Treaty.
Tho possibility of tho United States
becoming an enemy of Great Britain on
account of a war between Japan nnd the
United States is now ollmlnated from
the offenslvo and defensive alliance of
Japan and Great Britain through a mod-
lllcatlon of tho Anglo-Japanese treaty of
lWJj, which has Just boon signed In Ivon-
Hon ty Foreign Secretary Grey and
Count Kato, the Japanese ambassador,
Tho signing took placo on the 12th. The
chief modification was in article 4,
Wlllen now reads as follows:
'Should cither high contracting party
conclude a treaty of general arbitration
with a third power. It is agreed that
nothing In this agreement shall entail
on such contracting party an obligation
to go to war with tho power with whom
