The Citizens Committee of Brattleboro, An swers All the Arguments Put Forth by the Opposition Brattleboro Taxpayer Answers Another Taxpayer. Ktlitor Keformnr : In view of the interest Hint hits been shown ,und sunKestions mudo relative to the proposed chunue of shire, the committee of citizens interested in the move, deem it proper to now make a few suKfjestions, called out by what hus appeared in opposition to the plan. First, we must all iif,'ree upon care ful thought, that the county seat and the location of it belongs not to any town, but to the whole county. It is not like an industry or institution which has been built up in a commun ity and which only selfish interests may take away. It is part of the ma chinery of our government and should be for the benefit of the majority and not for the private emolument of any community. We agree that the burden is upon those asking for the change to show the necessity for it: all things being eiial, it ought to remain where it is. We believe, however, that the necessity for the change is apparent. Supposing we had no county build ings, and new ones were to be erected, where would they be put? Could New fane be a formidable candidate in that event? Suppose, too, a private indi vidual had a business scattered over the territory of this county, with the proportion in each town that county court business is, what place would he choose for his headquarters? This, it seems to us, is the real and substantial question. . There were at one time two shires for Windham county, at Marlboro and Westminster. They were so established because it better suited the majority of the population then. Afterward the county seat was at Westminster, and for the same reason. Then it was re on a par with our other public build ings, and of course, would be far and away superior in its ap pointments and finish to our pres ent court house, If the legislature passes the hill that will be offered, it will of course, be for lirattlelioro to say how expensive a building shall be furnished, subject to the condition that it shall be upon the approval of proper commissioners to care for the interests of the county. Citizens' Committee, lirattleboro, May 22, liKc'. Answer to Another Taxpayer, Editor Reformer: "Another Taxpayer" comes forward in your last issue with what he terms an answer in a general way to a letter of the week before signed lirattlelioro Taxpayer. As ho answers for the law yers and tells what they would do, we "will presume him to be one. It is not to be expected that a "hayseed" like mvself can bear up in fine argument with one accustomed to turning state ments and evidence into finished sen tences, lie brings out some of my points stronger than I did. In the first place he says that I place myself on record as opposed to moving the coun ty buildings to lirattleboro. I ask him to find any such statement in the let ter.

MORRIS & GREGG, 76 Main St. came the change to rnyetteville vil lage, all for the same cause. No one thiDks now that Marlboro, or West minster or the owners of property on Newfane Hill have a vested right in the shire of this county. lirattle lioro has no such right in it. If from a fair balance of argument, the people of the county feel that it is better to have it in lirattleboro, it ought to come here. The suggestion has been made that a part or all of the town of Kocking ham, Westminster, Marlboro, Wil mington, Whitingham and Halifax can as handily or more readily reach New fane than Brattleboro. That must be referred to the people of those towns; thev know how that is. What do they say about, hi The people cannot reach the shire town as the crow flies. Take the natural routes of travel and public conveyance, which place is the more accessible for the great majority? It is true the county has expended several thousand dollars in the last ten years on its hotel at Newfane. This was done, not because it is any part of the ordinary requirements, for the county seat, but because the situation of the shire at that place made it ab solutely necessarv. The hotel yields i nothing to the county. It is a contin j ual expense and must be. It is some i thing that would never be thought of ! in Brattleboro. The question of its maintenance would be entirely cut off if the shire were here. Had it been i moved here ten years ago, all that has been put into this hotel since, would have been saved. It is said there are i rooms fitted up for jurors sitting on criminal cases where they have to be kept together, lnis is so, but wnat ; is coming to court would not by any the saving.

Indeed, perhaps the day has passed when a few machine poli ticians can get together and name the man who is to receive the nomination j for governor without any opposition jand with no appeal to the people.

Mr. i j Proctor has stated that he thinks pro- j hibition preferable to any scheme of 'license, yet when asked if elected gov jernor anil the next legislature passed a ! ; local option law he should veto it, he ! ! made no direct answer, but referred to i his first published letter. If Mr. Proc- I tor is honest in his position, if he is j I not playing to grandstand, what pos-i sible objection can he have to saying lyes, I would veto any license, local op- j Ition or referendum law wtiiou the leg j islature might pass. The only reason l that seems probable is a fear that by taking too decided ground lie would alienate some of his local option sup porters and lose a few votes in the con vention. As long as it is uncertain I whether Mr. Proctor would veto a local j option law or not, betakes exactly the same position that Gen. McCullough ! does. Gen. McCullough says in sub- ; stance that if elected he shall take no' active part either for or against any j liquor law which the legislature may pass. If it passes a local option law! he will sign it. When pushed for an i answer as to whether he will veto a j local option law Mr. Proctor is silent, j There are some who profess to know i that he would not veto such a law. Who then is dodging issues? Gen. j McCullough says he shall abide by the ' decision of the majority of the people i as expressed in the legislature. Mr. ! i Troctor does not say what he would ! )do. What then is the situation? Mr. j j Clement is the only candidate who; 'stands squarely on an isshe.
