H. M. WOOD. Candidate Felix W. .McGettrick, the Pciiinfrat io noininee for i;i'Verniir. and C. 11. Davenport confliuled a three : days' campaiutiinf.' trip al.oiit the cntinty lief ore a j,'mnl nmlii-nce at the Auditorium Wednesday evening. The trip had included Urlluvvs Falls, Jack sonville, Wilmington ninl Xewfane, with afternoon and evening speeches and lots of hard ridiii"; to makt.' con nections, and l.oi lit he speakers natur ally were very tired: lmt they present ed 'facts and figures that oiiplit to fur nish food for thought for voters who seek only to do rii-'lit hy themselves, their state and their fellow taxpayers at the coining; election. One lonn-t ime Republican said coniinu out of the lncetiDU: "These fellows have the ap pearance of ti'lliuu tht truth: they trive us the dates, paces and details to verify their statements: I've carefully listened to all three sides, and this is the first time I have heard that surt of thine. " Mr. McGettrick is a magnificent speak er. and when he came to p t warmed up Wednesday cvenir..' exhibit d a marvelous power of i. I'.iv.u the atten tiou (f the audience. Hi iuid i.iiscom panii'i) had each spoken about an hour and a quarter before 'heir farmer au diences and not a man left while either wa-' talkimr. Tin- truth is our farm ers are dead in earnest ibis ji-ar: tlioiitrh they have been slow to move nut of lifeloiik' rar'.v iiu'i. 'hey tin- at la-t thornuuhly awakened !o the Deed of a radical reform, a polit ical House Cleaning in state alfairs.and the result in Seitemlier is beyond the possibil ities of even intellitrent tiuess work.

W. McGettrick will be the next irov ernor of Vermont. . If there is no ma jority at the polls, as is likely in this : three-cornered fh;ht,forany candidate, ; and as is more than likely, if Mr. McCuilouph appears iu the legislature more than a few short of a majority. the onlv possible solution is the election of 'McGettrick. The McCullouch or Clement factions will either or both turn to him rather than let the other win. And if that results it will be a food result for the state. In principle it will accomplish everything that the Clement following desire, and it w ill give us a governor worthy to rank in intellectual .juality with the foremost in our history tin- acknowl edged leader of the bar in his own county and among the best and most successful lawyers in the state and whatever else may be said for or against him. a man who was never afraid in his life, and is chuck full of the moral courage needed in this crisis of the state's long continued disease. ; As a poor boy of Id he heard his coun try's call and shouldered his musket in' the Vermont sharpshooters because' he h.ved his country and iis flag and , even as. a boy realized what they meant for mankind. And the proof of that love he bears tn-day in holes iu his body, like the gallant soldier and gen ial neighbor we laid away bere in Brattleboro last Saturday. Mr. McGettrick's speeches here have had a potent influence in arresting, the tendency among Democrats to go ; over to Clement, and if they could be j heard everywhere in the state or even ; if the party management were char ', enough of entanglements with the two' Republican factions, who are both bid- ; ding for their aid, to make the tight ! tilicates used, and bv the Iieattv inci jdent. proved at both ends, to be corn long: it had been diverted from itsjieter than ever before known. lie purposes and ideals by bad meu and read a statement imputing to F.

The meeting was called chiefly to state issnes claiming the . to order by S. S. .Hunt in the absence proof 'of bribery in the McCulloiigh of E. L.

These records showed a regular system of marching up of "Jo. rum-t iler- of the place under any rea sonable license ystem there would he .t:ly seven or eight -or rather their ' "dummies" or ttnetaKers. instead of ; the nims-lhrs 'hetnselvi who r.-gu- 1 iatly month after month, year after 1 year under the siime just ices and the: same oilicers all round, had appeared.

This- is shown by the sworn certificate for one of the regular days that on that dav the State's attorney had travelled miles (."id I'Vnsei'uted and convict :t rumellers for which he poc'Ket- ed over 7tm. In this list tf people who had every month been put through the mill he found one name that he had never heard of before, though so hmg a year- Lno to ,i tunes what they were tin ; years ago.or before thewar.and quoted .Govs. Proctor.

Or look at the of 'ficial salary and expense account ag gregating iV'i-mm again?! sl.i.mm after ; the war: or at the stationery and post ; age accounts meaning that each one of j these uiticials and commissions has written ss'm letters a year. 1 ; As to the prohibitory local option question he only called attention to the bunco game being played with this referendum promise, declared that it would be unconstitutional, referred to the opinions of Judge lo and Judge Wheeler to the effect, as is plainly shown 1 y Sec. ' of Art. '.i of the Amend ments. The Republican leaders knew all this perfectly when they drafted the plank. The only referendum that will count is mat on the c nstitutional date.Sep teniber 2. when every Vote for Clement and better and srraightcr still, every vote fur McGettrick will count for local option and will trace on the leg islatures walls warning that the sub ject must be honestly dealt with. And why shouldn't it be on that (later Who can give ioy reason, except for pur poses of trickery for a second test; belowi showed t hat the receipts for the ' past year were l:(m less than for tbe previous 12 months. Mr. Jones's re port was in the nature of an explana tion of the falling off of the receipts ; which was due in large measure, he said, to the cold weather during the month? of May, June and July. When the time came for the election of oilicers . L. Hunt moved that the secretary be empowed to cast a ballot for the entire old board. L. L. Davis objected to the election of any of the , old board with the exception of E. L. Waterman, and mostly at his nomina tion the following new directors were chosen: II. E. Bond, A. E. Thurber, W. E. Banks. George C. Averill. Mr. Averill. it is understood, will not ac cept the otlice, but no one has yet been chosen to take his place. It is proba ble that C. K. Jones will act as su perintendent for the present, although lie was a member of the board of direc tors last year. Following are the fig ures from the treasurer's report: liECElPT. e i 1 ed ; St. Albans. But on the inquiry he ' found there had been such a man em ; ployed as a sort of spittoon-cleaner at a little place called a hotel, and at the ! same time found he had been dead and ; buried for t hree years, during w hich he every month appeared in that court, which nobody outside the ring of of iricials and their victims, ever knew of being held, regularly plead guilty and ; took an appeal: not only that but the ; otlicer regularly charged for "assist iance" in arresting him and the jailer ; ti. si.. iO or for keeping him. As a counter illustration Mr. Mc Gettrick told of a poor widow to whom her husband had left a small drug store, who sold no liquor, as he be lieved, but upon whom the oilicers broke one night, and found a small jug of alcohol, such as all druggists use in compounding: when she was tried, the jury acquitted her almost without leaving their seats: but instead of that releasing her. there was a proceeding for the condemnation of the alcohol as contraband, which the jury had de cided it was not, but the proceeding meant some 1.1 fees for the officials: a trial by jury in this proceeding is de nied by the law: she tried to appeal, but found that. too. was denied: the justice entered the judgment of con demnation, and slit had to pay the fees as "cost-" in spite of the jury. Such instances are not exceptional but could be multiplied indefinitely, and are not mere abuses, such as may . occur under any law. but the natural and well-nigh inevitable fruits L.f a system that proceeds on wrong prin- ; ciples in denial of imiiridnal liberty and evasion of the only safe principle of Home Rule and Home Responsibil ity, which evasion is the source and 1 secret of all governmental evils that af- 1 riict Vermont. j With a return to right principles.

No man is better : qualified to represent Brattleboro in ;the legislature than Mr. Fitts but just ; at tbe present time the Republicans i feel the need of nominating whoever : can poll the very largest vote, j It can be safely said that the choice j of the Democratic caucus will be Dr. ; James Conland and also that he w ill receive the endorsement of the High ! License Local ( ipt ion club. Dr. Con 1 land is without doubt the very best man whom the Democrats can put up and is sure to make a very strong showing. An argument which eman ated from some leading Republicans Wednesday and which has been largely circulated since is that Dr. Couland's election would endanger Senator W. P. Dillingham's re-election. This slogan is no doubt for the purpose of holding every Republican vote within the party, but it does nt,t seem effec tive enough to answer its purpose. Even if Dr. Conland is a Democrat and would naturally favor the election of a Democratic seuator. Mr. Dilling ham's chances of being returned to Washington are so overwhelming that very few license Republicans would be afraid to vote for the candidate who stands for their principles. Besides. , the voters are fighting the prohibition question and not settling the matter of senatorship and high liceuse men re fuse to lie side tracked by the argu- ' ment. Later At a meeting of the Republi can leaders last evening it was decided to support Mr. Fitts as the Republican nominee for representative. N I To KENT Ap i- nt. No. c llili street. eitf I Anplv tT.

She! iff A. Now is the Time to Subscribe for the Reformer again out the lesson of all our history that one-man movements are futile for great reforms or changes of policy: if they accomplish pood, it is evenascent. while the introduction of personal politics is of itself an evil that may outweigh, as it is sure long to out last the benefit. No man is great enough, wise enough or statesmanlike enough not to be dominated more or less completely by the treat forces that underlie parties. Farties. the organ ized form of these forces, are therefore necessary and it must ever be through them that progressive action must come. If they don't do right they can be held to responsibility, they can be hit by the popular will when the per sonal movement has vanished and left but empty air. The two parties are not only necessary, but from both good can and has come; tbe Republican party has a right to be proud of its history, and so bas the Democratic party," though it has had its share of errors and worse, especially before the war. It had then been in power too half an hour. He spent a few To Nine Tears at Hard Labor in the State's Prison Hurried1 to Woodstock Tuesday for Fear Outside Friends Would Release Him He Pleads Guilty to Six Night Burglaries and One Grand Larceny. Officers took Clarence Adams, the confessed burglar, from his Chester home and carried him on a cot bed to Woodstock Tuesday. They had reason to believe that a plan was on foot to se cure his release. Two nights last week a team was seen to drive past Adams' house about 10 o'clock then turn round and drive slowly back. The location of the Adams' residence is one-quarter of a mile to the nearest neighbor and there is but very little passing only by ! the farming people. Two officers were constantly with Adams and an extra ! force was on duty each night. The spring gun shot wound received by Adams at the Waterman mill July 2S, , is healing fast. The last article iden tified among the stolen goods is a new light driving harness taken fiom II. B. Booth's harness shop about three years ago. Although Adams says he has been in the burglar Business 1.1 years, he only admits of taking goods as far as they have been identified by the oirn ; ers. which covers only six years. Adams was arraigned before the Windsor county court Wednesday and in the afternoon pleaded guilty to six informations charging him with bur glary in the night time and one infor mation charging grand larceny. The respondent was conveyed to court in a wagon and sat in a low arm chair during the proceedings. He showed little life or expression in face or voice as he answered "guilty" seven times in reply to Clerk Fember's questions. Adams was represented bv Frank. Plumley of Xorthtield. W. B. C. Stick ney of Bethel and F. C. Davis of Springiield. A brief statement was made by State's Attorney Tarbell who urged that there were no mitigating circumstances in Adams' crime and that the penalty should be severe. Messrs. Stickney and Plumley both spoke for the respondent, urging that some consideration was due him for making a clean breast of the affair and for tbe reparation he was willing to make. Mr. Plumley said that had Adams pleaded not guilty, he would, according to i recedent, have been tried for only one offense, and if con licted, tbe other cases would have been dropped. He thought the re spondent should be treated now as he would have been under other circum stances. Adams had nothing to say why sen tence should not be passed upon him, and for the burclarv of the Pollard .v. W. J.
