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.

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

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;

Hone Scale company at Kutland will
' seek work elsewhere unless the strike
! is soon settled. Dr. John A. Mead,
! chief owner of the works, says it is im
possible to give the men paid by the
week a nine-hour day with 10 hours'
pay, and the piece hands an advance
corresponding, under present condi-!
tions. He intimates that he would be1
able to make concessions if the Kair-1
banks people, Jones of liinghampton '
end other manufacturers would grant a j
nine-hour day with the rates of wages
wanted by the Kutland mechanics, j
Competition, he says, would not allow j
the Howe works to be the only ones to
make the desired changes. Tho men j
are unyielding in their demands for a !
shorter day. The managers are mak- !
ing preparations to close the works for ;
an indefinite period.
