The general convention of United!

The vote for the strike! was 4U'., out of a total Ml. This step ; has been taken after two months' con- i sidcration. The most serious labor ! struggle in the history of the country j is predicted. The streets of Madrid. Spain, are j , thronged with people, including many , foreign and provincial visitors, to wit- .t ness the festivities in connection with the coronation of King Alfonso. The j hours the closest attention was given him from beginning to end. Before the lecture the First Regi ment band rendered several select ions in front of the Auditorium but its music was not ueeded as a drawing card, liefore the time for the begin ning of the lecture nearly every seat was taken and the whole house was soon filled. Tlie Royal l'onciana col ored ijuartet, of New York, which is t raveling with Mr. Clement, kept the audience in good humor by several se lections. Mr. Clement was introduced very brielly by K. W. lilodgett, chair man of the board of bailiffs, and with out any attempt at a formal preamble he began present ing his cause. He said northern ,n .,rt Port au "It is the function of government to delega- control the individual as little as pos- sible, allowing him the greatest free- i doin in all directions, and only limit- ' imr Iti-i noli.,!! el,..ri. it i n1 i.rf.r.. .t-i 1 1. , . .. . .-- ..v . ..... ....... . , ...,...','. . . .1 different battles in which the navv alone particiimted. He paid a feeling tribute to the naval heroes of Amer ican history, and made the statement, which is worth remembering, that the United States is the only country in tlie world whose navy has never low ered its colors to an enemy. Captain Hobson made a forcible ar gument in behalf of the increase of our naval strength. It takes three years to construct a warship but it is only a matter of little less than two weeks for a foreign ileet to cross the Atlantic and appear off our coast. At present the United States navy is a poor fourth in the list, and at the last session Jof congress not one cent, was appropriated for the const ruction of new vessels. Nothing can keep up the prestige of a nation in other countries like a powerful navy and that i- just After Moderator Hooker had called tho meeting to order George W. Pierce offered the above mentioned resolution which read as follows: Resolved That three commissioners be appointed by the chair who are re iiiested nd empowered to construct a steel bridge across the Connecticut river on the present site of the old bridge, and to raise the old abutments from three to five feet: the pier in the center of the river may be utilized if, upon investigation, the same is found to be firm and substantial: otherwise, the bridge shall be of one span : that said bridge shall he so constructed that its roadway may, in the future, be elevated; the roadway of said bridge shall be of suitable width and of sufficient strength to accommodate all travel, including electric cars fort cither freight or passenger traffic : with what this country needs to hold her i 11 six-toot suiewaiK. lor a sum not ex own in the far 'Fast.

Provided, however, that arrangements can be made with the town of Hinsdale for its proportion of the expense of building said bridge and abutments, to the satisfaction of Known ivater. n.iii-h lifm.mi in f ,,,.r t lie COllim 1 1 1 ee. tbi.il i there todnv. At ihelmiih. fi t.eorgu j. I'unimm iiiovm mar tne Santiago hav had Cervera's fleet stood i the speaker the only thing which pre- ' vented the partition of China was the ' fact, that the United States had at that 1 time an exceedingly strong Meet in the rights of others. Prohibition can i ! be j'lstitjed only when intemperance exists in a community to such an ex jtent as to become ii burden upon so iciety has a right to protect itself. This i is the only theory for its justification. , Such a condition of things never has existed in Vermont, and docs not exist I today. Therefore, state prohibition is : not justilicd. F.ven if it did exist it i would be necessary in order to jus- tify so arbitrary a measure, to show that prohibition is the proper remedy, : to show that prohibit inn is good for i something. The prohibit innist is in j this position.-he must first prove a i condition precedent to justify the rem ,.dv which h pronoses. and in thesec j ond place, lie must snow that bis re.n ' edy has merit. " Mr. I lenient explained somewhat in j detail the workings of the law in its ! administration, and then showed how a license local option law would oper ate, using as an example the general i provisions of the Massachusetts law. , He undertook to prove that prohibition i does not prohibit in Maine. New Hamp shire, Kansas or North Dakota, the other American states where prohibi tion is the law at the present time. In,answer to the claim of other can didates that the election of a governor who favors license, wouldn't influence the repeal of the law, Mr. Clement said that "such an election would in dicate the sentiment of the stare in ex actly the same way that the election of McKinley in H!H! indicated the senti ment of the country upon the question of tariff. McKinley could not puss the tariff bill; neither could he pass a law making gold the standard of value in the I. nited States. It required the ac tion of (he senators and representa tives assemblnd in Congress to form that legislation. Nevertheless, the light was made upon the election of the president, and the same rule holds good in Vermont today." He stated that there had been no issue in any gubernatorial campaign for more than 10 years, except the per sonal one. and he says the License Local Option league deserves the thanks of Vermont for bringing one live issue into one campaign. He also said that the political machine of Ver mont is against any agitation of this subject, fearing lest it may lose eon trol of the Republican organization of the state. He denounced the Vermont Anti Saloon league for blacklisting the legislators of Vermont for voting for license and to refer the question to the people, and said that the only ap- away from the American ships the su perior speed of the former would have soon left our vessels far in the rear and within a few hours so scattered would have been the American fleet that the Spaniards could have turned about and destroyed them one at a time until all were annihilated. Noth ing will enforce the Monroe doctrine so effectively as a strong navy, and no nation has so much weight in main taining the peace of the world as the one with a formidable array of war ves-sels. Americans always have been famous for the heroic stands which they have made for a principle. The per cent of loss in both Feleral and Confederate amies in so'ro of the engag' tnents of tht Civil war were lar greater than those of any other army in history. A number of regiments on both sides suf- j fered more heavily in single battles I than did the famous Light brigade of j the Fuglish army. From the very fact i that this country is willing to saciifice j ;o much for a principle comes the need resolution ne adopted. LlarK u. r ltts in behalf of the owners of the Crosby storehouse, whiclwis situated between the bridge and railroad tracks, spoke briefly regarding the damage which would be done the pioperty by the change of grade if the new bridge were raised more than three feet above the present, site, requesting in behalf of the block owners that nothing be done which would cause any altercation re garding the matter 'of properly dam age. Mr. Pierce said the committee was unanimous in adopting the clause in the resolution regarding the height of the bridge and that the civil engin eer had advocated a higher grade. At least a three feet raise was needed, he said, to make allowances for the high water. In regard to the amount stat ed in the resor itieiti iir. Pierce said that the bridge in all probability could be built for less than s;i3.tX.0 and that if Hinsdale would bear one-third tho expense it would bring the cost to llrattleboro down to about .--'0,0(iO, The resolution was then passed and Mr. Hooker appointed W.

A full house greeted the First Regi ment band at its annual concert which was given in the Auditorium last even ing, and this much appreciated organ ization demonstrated that it still com pares favorably with any similar musi cal aggregation outside the large cities of the country. ' In fact the concert, was, if anything, of a higher standard than ever, which is saying a good deal considering the excellent work which has been done in years past. The under standing with which tlie different movements were rendered and the fa miliarity displayed in amount of study is done by each player the more dilli- 1 authority structu re. the whole meeting might as well be dis missed as to dismiss the article rela tive to raising the necessary money.
