THE WINDHAM COUNTY REFORMER, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1902.
MATTERS IN VERMONT. THE NEWS OF THE STATE BRIEFLY TOLD The ''Backet-Shop" Proieentioni Not Ended The Canadian Atlantic Eailroad Deal Blocked The Oldest Vermonter 112-Arreited and Fined for Selling Jamaica Ginger-Tenement Home Fire in Montpelier To State's Frieon for Bigamy-Mystery of a Barre Han's Disappearance Sowed Arrested for Attempted Murder. The supposed smallpox in Cambridge has turned out to De cnicnenpox. The Vermont Association in Wash ington held its annual reunion Friday evening with a large attendance. Rep resentative D. J. Foster of Uurlington delivered an address. An article has been placed in the wnniinc for the March meeting at Montpelier to see if the voters will recommend to the city council that nine hours a day shall be the schedule of hours for city Jiioorers. Abraham. Lincoln Post, G. A. R., of White River Junction, has been dis banded, its surviving members being old and infirm and unable to attend the meetings. The organization has done good work during its existence. Ira Fleury of Richmond, 67 years of age and father of 12 children, was sen tenced in Burlington court Friday to two years in the house of correc tion. The prosecution was conducted under the blanket act, the maximum sentence for his offence being 12 years. Nows has been received at Bonning ton of the death in Los Angeles, Cal. , Friday of the Rev. Dr. William H. Meeker, an active member for nearly 50 years of the Troy M. E. conference having preached in Rutland and Pitts- ford circuit, the Georgia and Milton circuit and for three years in Middle- bury. The deal engineered by Dr. W. S. Webb, chairman of the board of di rectors of the Rutland railroad, where by that road was to have absorbed the Canada Atlantic, has been blocked, temporarily at least, by a Canadian statute prohibiting the sale of any Canadian railroad to a foreign corpo ration. It is said that Burlington .citizens are thinking of holding a city meeting to see on what terms the Rutland rail road shops can be secured for that city, believing that the matter is not yet settled in Rutland's favor, al though Dr. Webb has accepted the Rutland proposition and has promised that work on the new shops will begin as soon as the weather will permit. A dividend of 7415 per cent, has been declared by the probate court at Bur lington to the legatees under the will of Prudence B. Roby. The Methodist Episcopal church will get $1100 for their parsonage. The home for aged women will get $500 and the W. C. I. T7 temnerance ternnle at Chicago &00. The Methodists would have bad 8(3000 except for litigation which ate up the rest. Dr. C.'A. Bailey of Randolph, was arrested Friday and pleaded guilty of furnishing four ounces of Jamaica gin ger to William Tobey which he claims to have got drunk on. The doctor was fined $5 and costs amounting to $8, which he at once paid. The'medicine was obtained at Bailey's diug store from one of his clerks and he knew nothing of the matter until arrested on the charge of furnishing. As the result of a dispute at Fort Ethan Allen over a pipe, Private Has kell of the 27th Battery of Held artil lery, stabbed Private Donahue in the abdomen just below the heart with a four-inch jack-knife Monday. The thrust was made with great foice and an ugly wound was inflicted. Donahue DE. WEBB AND HIS CHANCES. As the New York World Sees Them-Will the License Flank in the Platform Defeat Him? His Generosity to the State Remem beredOther Pleasant Reminiscences-So Good a Manager of His Own Affairs Ought to be Able to Defend the Treasury. The New York World takes a most interesting and amusing view of ur. Webb's candidacy for the governorship of Vermont, as will be seen by the fol lowing from its columns: "Dr. W. Seward Webb, of No. 080 Fifth avenue, is a candidate for gov ernor of Vermont, and if he receives the Republican nomination at the spring convention he will be as good as elected, for there are not enough Democrats in the entire state to carry a single county on strictly party lines. "Dr. Webb's legal residence lsShel burne, Vt., where his country estate, known as Hhelburne Farms, is one of the finest in the world. The doctor has lived there since 1887, but probably not 5 per cent, of the voters ever saw him. Some of the remainder have heard of him at one time or another. They have heard nothing but good reports, and every one who knows the millionaire likes him. Vet it remains to be seen whether the conservative Vermonter will decide to place an alien of the state at the head of the government. In Vermont the Ureen Mountains divide the state into on east and west side, and it has been customary for many decades to choose a governor first from one side and then from the other. As they are elected every two years the number is not great, and hot contests result. "Dr. W ebb has for an opponent Gen. G. McCullough of Bennington, who also more or less of an alien. The general has done as much for his na tive town as has the doctor for Shel burne. The doctor, however, once gave the militia the use of his cow pasture during the annual encampment, and as this saved the state nearly 8210, his generosity has never been forgotten. It was rumored at that time that the doc tor must want politicul preferment, but he subsequently lived down the canard. "There is a high license plank in the platform to be supportedTby Dr. Webb and this, it is feared, will do much to defeat him. The conservative element j in the state has been fighting for years to keep the prohibition laws on the statute books and THE GREAT K. & A. TRAIN ROBBERY. By Paul Leicester Ford.

This latter would have looked hopeful bnt for the fact that it was a party of three women and a man. " Going back beyond Lamy didn't give anything, for the conductor was able to (count for every fare as either still in the train or as having got off at aame point. My only conclusion was that the robbers had sneaked on to the platforms It Sanders, and I gave the crew a good ircssiug down for their carelessness. Of while the laws are lourse they insisted it was imDOsaibla. still there the fight has gradually gone j tut they were bound to do that against them.

Haskell was ar rested and is in the guard house' charged with an attempt to murder. The mvsterv surrounding the disap pearance of Luther Fairbrother of Barre, who went to Attleboro, Mass., from that place recently, was solved by the finding of his dead body on the ice at Laurel pond. Mr. Fairbrother left the home of his brother Friday morn ing to go to Valley Falls to secure some medicine. He remained in the village until late in the evening. When he started for home it was snowing, and it is believed he lost his way, at tempting to cross the pond, was over come by the wind, and fell exhausted. Mrs. Honora McCarty, who has the distinction of being the oldest person living in Vermont, Saturday observed her 112th birthday, at her home near LakeParan in the town of Shaftsbury. Several vears ago therewas some ques tion as to the accuracy of her age, and the priest of the parish in which she resides sent to Ireland, and procured copies of the baptismal records from the church in that country, which left no doubt as to the date of her birth, which was the first Friday in Lent, 1790. She remombers quite distinctly the famous O Donnell rebellion. Private Porter of the 2d Uattery, a prisoner at Fort Ethan Allen, who was working on the reservation in the charge of an armed guard, overpowered the guard Saturday and took from him his rifle, and revolver and in turn made a prisoner of the guard, and obliged him to accompany him to parts at present unknown. A largo detail was at once sent out in pursuit of the fugitive. The fugitive was found by pursuing troops in the woods near Es sex Junction and with the sentry was taken back to the post. The sentry will be tried by general court martial. St. Johnsbury is stirred over the an nouncement that the defeat of the state in the Cochrane "bucket shop" case has not ended the prosecution. Walter Jewett, respondent in another case, was in court Thursday morning to plead to an indictment found at the last June term. Ujmn his plea of not guilty the case was nol pressed by the state and Jewett was immediately re arrested on an information consisting of 56 counts, alleging the keeping of a bucket shop. Jewett is set up in the information as the keeper of the shop and also as the agent of the Metrojwl itan Stock Exchange of Boston. May Williams Garrison, a colored woman, of Jericho, was in Burlington court Saturday on the charge of big amy. She waived examination and bail was fixed at 1.000, which she was unable to furnish. Later she asked that an information be filed against her and to that she pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve not less than two nor more than two and a half years in state's prison at Windsor. Several years ago the respondent mar ried Garrison, but later they separat ed. Her husband instituted divorce proceedings against her and when the papets were served it was found that n January last she was married to C. E. Blood, white man. Upon this discovery a charge of bigamy was brought against her. make him intoxicated, the doctor could and probably would, be sent to the workhouse to polish marble for a spell. The workhouse is not in Rutland, and better-known citizens than the doctor have been comtined there in blue jeans and had their hair cropped for owning a hotel or drug store in which liquor was sold. "Dr. Webb's great wealth and social connections have kept the people in awe of him, but there is no reason in this, for the millionaire is most demo craticin Vermont. "In 1890 he was elected to the legis lature from Shelburne, and he won every one with whom he came in con tact by bis simple ways and cordial manner. It was during this session that he was appointed a member of the House Committee on Military Af fairs. In order to get on better terms with his fellow-workers he took the committee in his private car Ellsmere on a trip about the state to inspect camp sites. Several of the members had never been in a more luxurious car than a smoker, and the magnificence of the Ellsmere took their breath away for two days. It was on this trip that one of the legislators mistook cel ery salad garnished with-greens for hash and refused to eat it on the ground that he didn't like his food served with grass in it. It was noted at the time that the legislators who voted for prohibition drank the Doc tor's champagne. When a reporter called the attention of one of them to what appeared to be a moral discrep ancy he came to the surface with the remark that he "drank for his stomach and voted for his constituents." "Di. Webb's wealth will not neces sarily militate against him, for he has been generous, and in many of his fi nancial deals Vermonters have got in on the ground floor. His income is larger than that of the State, and there is a feeling that a man Who can manage his own affairs successfully ought to be able to defend the treasury. ) "The governor of Vermont is a very large pollywog in a very small puddle. The dimensions of the. puddle are so limited that when the pollywog grows to a full-fledged frog he usually hops into the national House of Representa tives or the United States Senate, " said a friend of Dr. Webb yesterday. 'If Dr. Webb has any political am bitions they lie in this direction. It is figured by astute politicians that two representatives of the Vanderbilt millions'and the New V'ork Central are much better than one congress. Ver mont will have a senatorial election not long after Dr. Webb's term as gov ernor is ended, should he be elected, ond if he makes a good record with the farmers there is little doubt but that he would be sent to Washington. "The brunt of Dr. Webb's battle will be fought by the railroad interests of the state. The doctor is interested directly or indirectly in every road of consequence from the Massachusetts line to Canada, and every influence controlled by the roads will be swung. Capable managers are conducting the campaign Humors feed on humors the sooner you get rid of them the better Hood's Sarsaparilla is the medicine to take. C. W. Spaulding, grand senior war den of the grand encampment of Ver ment, died at Woodstock Tuesday of consumption. More than .10 of the Boston alumni of Norwich university attended their 14th annual dinner at Boston Saturday evening. Ihey sang the old college songs and related reminincences. The Hillside boarding house at Montpelier, owned by City Judge Smilie, was practically destroyed by fire Sunday morning. The building was occupied by 11 families, with a total of 5.1 people, more than half of whom were children. The tenants were all poor people, who lost almost all their household belongings. The tem perature was below zero, and many of the children suffered intensely. The origin of the fire was a defective chim ney. The building was formerly a Methodist church made into a tene ment house about 25 years ago. Loss on the building was $8,000, with in surance of $1,000. Favorite Nearly Everywhere.

"Do yon really expect to catch them?" she asked. "I shouldn't like to be one of them," I replied. "But how can yon do it?" "You could understand better, Miss Onllen, if you knew this country. Ton see every bit of water is in use by ranches, and those fellows can't go more than 60 miles without watering. So we shall have word of them, wherever they go." "Line out, Mr. Gordon, " came from overhead at this point, maying Miss Onllen jump with surprise. "What was that?" she asked. I explained to her, and, after making onnections, I called Sanders. Mnoh to aay surprise, the agent responded. I was so astonished that for a moment I ould not believe tho fact. "This is the queerest hold up of which I ever heard, " I said to Miss Cullen. "Aw, in what respect" asked Albert Cullen's voice, and, looking up, I found that he and quite a number of the pas sengers had joined us. "The road agents make us dump our fire," I said, "and yet they haven't out the wires in either direction. I can't sea how they can escape us. " "What fnnl" cried Miss Cullen. "I don't see what difference either makes in their ohanoe of escaping, " said Lord Ralles. While he was speaking I ticked off the news of our being held up and asked the agent if there had been any men about Sanders, or if he had seen anyone board the train there. His answer was positive that no one could have done so, and that settled it as to Sanders. I asked the same questions of AUantown and Wingate, which were the only places we had stopped at after leaving Coolidge, getting the same answers. That eight men could have remained concealed on any of the platforms from that point was impossible, and I began to suspect magic. Then I called Coolidge and told of the hold up, after which I telegraphed the agent at Navajo Springs to notify the commander at Fort Defiance, for I suspected tho road agents would make for tho Navajo reservation. Filially I called Flagstaff as I had Coolidge, di rected that the authorities be notified of the facts and ordered a special to bring out the sheriff and posse. "I don't think, " said Miss Cullen, "that I am a bit more curious than most people, but it has nearly maxle me fran tic to have you tick away on that little machine anil hear it tick back and not understand a word. " After that I had to tell her what I had said and learned. "How clever of you to think of count ing the tickets and finding out where people got on and off 1 I never should have thought of either," she said. "It hasn't helped me inuch, " I laugh ed rather grimly, "except to eliminate every possible, clew. " "They probably did steal on at one of the stops, ' ' said a passenger. I shook my head. "There isn't a stick of timber nor a place of concealment on these alkali plains," I replied, "and it was bright moonlight till an hour ago. It would lie hard enough for one man to get within a milo of the station with out being soon, and it would be impossi ble for seven or eight " "How do you know the number?" asked a passenger. "I don't," I said. "That's the num ber tho crew think there were, but I myself don't believe it." "Why don't yon believe the men?" asked Miss Cullen. "First, because there is always a tend ency to magnify, and, next, because the road agents ran away so quickly. " "I counted at least seven," said Lord Ralles. "Well. Lord Ralles," I said, "I don't want to dispute your eyesight, but if they had been that strong they would never have bolted, and if you want to lay si bottle of wine I'll wager that when I catch those chaps we'll find there weren't more than three or four of "Done I" said he. Leaving the group, I went forward to get the report of the mail agent. Ho had put things to rights and told mo that, though the mail had been pretty badly mixed up, only one pouch at worst had been rifled. This, the one for registered moil, hud been cut open; but, as if to increase tho mystery, the letters had been scattered, unopened, about the car, only three out of the whole being miss ing, and thase very probably had fall en into tho pigeonholes and would be found on a more careful search. I confess I breathed easier to think that the road agents had got away with nothing, and was so pleased that I went back to the wire to send the news of it that tho fact might be included in the press dispatches. The moon had set, and it was so dark that I had seme difficulty in finding tho pole. When I found it, Miss Cullen was still standing there. What was more, a man was close beside her, and as I oame up I heard her say, indignantly: "I will not allow it. It is unfair to take such advantage of me. Take your arm away or I shall call for help! That was enough for me. One step carried my 160 pounds over the inter vening ground, and, using the momen tum of the stride to help, I put the flat of my hand against the shoulder of the man and gave "him a shove.

I longed to put it .about her, but by this time I wanted to do only what I thought she would wish and so restrained myself. Before I had time to finish an apology to Miss Cullen tho fellow was upon his feet and came at me with an exclama tion of anger. In my surprise at recog nizing the voice as that of Lord Ralles I almost neglected to take care of my self; but, though ho was quick with his fists, I caught him by the wrists as he closed, and he had no chance after that against a fellow of my weight "Oh, don't quarrel!" cried Miss Cul len. Holding him, I said, "Lord Ralles, I overheard what Miss Cullen was saying, and supposing some man was insulting her I ucted as I did. " Then I let go of him and, turning, said, "lam very sor ry, Miss Cullen, if I did anything the circumstances did not warrant," while cursing myself for my precipitancy and for not thinking that Miss Cullen would never have been caught in snch a plight with a man unless she had been half willing, for a girl does not merely threaten to call for help if she really wants aid. Lord Ralles wasn't much mollified by my explanation. "You're too much in a hurry, my man," ho growled, speak ing to me as if I were a servant. "Be a bit more careful in tho future. " I think I should have retorted for his manner was enough to make a saint mad if Miss Cullen hadn't spoken. "You tried to help me, Mr. Gordon, and I am deeply grateful for that," she said. The words look simple enough set down hero. But the tone in which she said them and the extended bund aud the grateful little squeezo she gave my j fingers all seemed to express so much that I was more puzzled over them than I was over the robbery. thing tangible, for if they disappeared they left their shells behind them." Aud I pointed to some cartridge shells that lay on the ground beside the mail car. "My theory of aerial bullets won't da" "Tho shells are as hollow as I feel," laughed Miss Cullen. "Your suggestion reminds me that I am desperately hungry, ' ' I said, ' 'Sup pose we go back and end tho famine. " Most of tho passengers hod long since returned to their seats or berths, and Mr. Oullon's party had apparently done the same, for 218 showed no signs of life. One of my darkies was awake, and ha broiled a steak and made us Borne coffee in no time, and just as they were ready Albert Cullen appeared. So we made a very jolly little breakfast He told me at length the part he and the Britishers had borne and only made me marvel the more that any one of them was alive, for apparently they had jump ed off the car without the slightest pre caution and had stood grouped together even after they had called attention to themselves by Lord Ralles' shots. Cul len had to confess that he heard the whistle of the four bullets unpleasantly close. "You have a right to be proud, Mr. Cullen," I said. "Yon fellows did a tremendously plucky thing, and, thanks to you, we didn't lose anything." "But you went to help, too, Mr. Gor don," said Miss Cullen. That made mo color up, and after a moment's hesitation I said: "I'm not going to sail under false colors, Miss Cullen. When I went for ward, I didn't think I could do any thing. I supposed whoever had pitched into the routers was dead, and I expect ed to be the same inside of ten minutes. "Then why did you risk, your life, " she asked, "if you thought it was use lens?" I laughed, and, though ashamed to tell it, said, "I didn't want you to think that the Britishers had more pluck than I had." She took my confession better than J hoped she would, laughing with me, and then said, "Well, that was coura geous, aft or olL " , "les,"Isaid. "I was frightened intc bravery. " "Perhaps if they had known the dan ger as well as you, they would have been less courageous," she continued. And I could have blessed her for the speech. While we were still eating, the mail clerk came to my car aud reported that ihe most careful search had failed to discover the three registered letters, and they had evidently been taken. Thit made me feel sober, slight as the prob ahlo loss was. He told me that his list showed they were all addressed to Asa Forks, A. T. , making it improbable that their contents could be of any real value. If possible, I was more puzzled than ever. At 6:10 the runner whistled to Bhow he had steam up.

Mr. Cullen was still dressing, but I expressed my regrets through the door that I could not go with his party to the Grand canyon; told him that all after a pause. But she declined to do so, saying she wanted to know what I was going to telegraph. And he left us, for which I wasn't sorry. I told her of the good news I had to send, and she wanted to know if now we would try to catch tho road agents. I set her mind at rest on that score. "I think they'll give us very little trouble to bug," I added, "for they are so green that it s almost pitiful. "In not cutting the wires?" she asked. "In everything," I replied. "But the worst botch is their waiting till we had just passed the Arizona line. If they had held us up an hour earlier, it would only have been stato's prison." "Aud what will it bo now?" "Hanging."
