BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, APSII 'JJ903
.The Only Sure Remedy.
Illinois bus now joined the list of
states which have passed resolutions
calling for the popular election of Unit
ed States senators. While in principle
the legislative method was considered
preferable at the time our system of
government was formed, experience has
turned popular sentiment more aDd
more strongly away from it and the re
cent exposures, in the legislatures of
some states, of corruption in connec
tion with senatorial ambitions, have
given a powerful impetus to the move
ment in favor of popular elections. It
is believed that it would be much more
difficult for an unworthy enndidate to
cany a popular election by means of
money, than for him to manipulate a
legislature, where, sometimes, a very
few votes need to be altered to ensure
an election.
The change desired will undoubted
ly be made sometime, but much must
be done to achieve it. Two-thirds of
the 45 states must petition Congress to
call a convention for the amendment
of the constitution and, should this be
done, the work must be ratified by
three-quarters of the states. It is gen
erally admitted that the people and
the lower house of Congress are ready
to do their part toward bringing about
this amendment; but great unwilling
ness exists in the senate. For that body,
it would mean a radical change of com
position and character, and its mem
bers are too well satisfied with their
present positions, privileges and pow
ers to wish any change whatever made
in the method by which they obtained
them. Public sentiment of the strong
est, most compelling kind will have to
be brought to bear long and constantly
upon each of these members in his own
home field, before senatorial consent to
the amendment can be hoped for.
But the root of the matter of honest
elections lies deeper than this question
of method. The method may help or
hinder a little in the plotting of the
unscrupulous ambitious; but a dis
honest election is the direct result of
the dishonesty of the individual voter;
and if a state has purchasable voters
enough, and the unscrupulous candi
date has money enough, he will still
have his way, regardless of method.
The only sure remedy for political
corruption, with its attending injus
tice and injury to the general welfare,
is in the education of individuals. If
each person who votes could be made to'
understand the real meaning to him
self and his own little circle of that
vote ; if he could be made to see how
surely his own dishonest vote goes on
and on multiplying in dishonesty and
finally comes back to him in the shape
of extortion and oppression and the
other very evils he is complaining
about; if he could be brought to real
ize that its effect for good or ill is in
finitely more to him in the end than
the paltry price of its market value,
there would not be so much selling and
trading of votes and influence.
It depends on the individual voter
and not, very greatly, on election meth
ods, whether we shall, as a people, tie
free and prosperous and contented ; or
whether we shall be the slaves of trusts
and unprincipled autocrats forced in
to a treadmill life to meet their de
mands and to carry the burdens of their
increasing taxation.
More than anything else the people
need to understand where their true
power lies.
Political Corruption and Degeneracy.
Serious charges are made against the
farm workers of Vermont, New Hamp
shire, Rhode Island and Delaware
where political corruption is admitted
ly prevalent. They are said to make up
a larger proportion of the purchasable
voters of the communities than any
other class and to sell their votes more
cheaply and readily than any other.
Leslie's Weekly says that its own ob
servations tend to confirm these
charges.
It is argued that while this is ex
plained in some quarters as due to ag
ricultural depression and the tempta
tion born of scarcity of money, the
real cause is found in the degeneracy
of the people of the rural districts
the moral, mental and spiritual degra
dation which, it is claimed, has sunk
the population of many of our isolated
communities to a depth as low as that
of the slums of our great cities.
Whatever may be true in other states,
we do not believe that such depth
of degeneracy has been reached in any
of Vermont's farming communities.
We do not believe that our farmers are
unduly or disproportionately respon
sible for any political corruption that
may exist, as charged, in the state.
But we do believe that public senti
ment generally needs to be aroused
and the public conscience quickened
on that subject. When it comes to be
admitted in the state, as well as out
side of it, that the bribery of voters
has played an important part in the
state elections, it is time that some
home missionary work was done by the
thoughtful, intelligent, sincere ele
ment of the citizenship, for something
is surely wrong with our people.
If, out of pure indifference, or from
the Yankee love of a dollar, or from any
selfish or unworthy motive whatever,
we have failed in our political duties,
have lowered our political standards or
grown careless of the honor of our state
so that we are deemed degenerates
it is time we studied a few things.
It is time we learned the value and
privilege and power of a man's vote;
it is time we learned the difference in
the results, both to ourselves and to the
whole country, of a vote cast honastly
and to the best of our judgment and
one sold to the highest bidder ; it is
time we learned something of our duty
and the importance of it to ourselves,
our neighbors, our state and the coun
try. If we have fallen so low as to be
classed with degenerates, it is time we
lifted our standards a little higher and
climbed up after them..
The Simple Horalitiei of the Liquor Question.
That the public is beginning to see
where the real evil of the liquor ques
tion lies is evident by the change that
is coming over public expressions on
that question. One of the boldest,
plainest and most unequivocal of these
is made by Rev. Dr. S. D. McConnell,
rector of All Souls' church, New York,
in a recent sermon. He says that va
rious theories, appetites and interests
have co-operated to bemuddle the sim
ple moralities of the matter. He holds
that men have a moral right to sell in
toxicating liquors, the same as in the
case of drugs and firearms. The plac
ing of the blame on the liquor seller
and the designating of the drinker as
a "victim" and helpless in the matter,
he thinks, is most unwise and unjust;
and its natural result is to make the
drunkard sorry for himself instead of
ashamed of himself, as he should be.
He holds that the man who gets drunk
is the real criminal and the one who
sells him liquor only the accessory be
fore the fact. He says: "Let us di
rect the machinery of correction against
the man by whom the offence comes. "
He argues as follows :
"Nothing would so certainly and so
quickly put an end to drunkenness as
would the introduction of a right mor
al judgment of the offense. Let us
point public contumely first at the
man who gets drunk. He is the prin
cipal in the offense. The man who
sells him the liquor is only the acces
sory. Suppose some hot-tempered fel
low in his rage shoots a harmless citi
zen and thus bereaves and distresses a
family, leaves it without a breadwin
ner, puts the public to the expense of
a coroner's inquest and a trial for mur-.'
der, who would think of letting him
go in pity while the public should de
nounce the hardware dealer who sold
him a revolver? It is true of course,
that the hardware man knew that the
pistol possessed a lethal quality. But
he knew also the responsibility for its
use rested upon the man who bought
it. Let us get rid of cant and face the
facts."
This is a sensible view and one that
goes to the very root of the drink evil.
It is a view that the public should se
riously consider.

The president hit it off pretty well
with some of the fathers and mothers
when he promulgated his famous "race
suicide" views; but out in western
New York, the old maids are buzzing
like angry hornets over them. At their
convention last week they roasted'the
president unmercifully, advising him
to attend to the trusts and the coming
election and to leave the question of
babies to the women of the country.
Being only the father,, and not the
mother of a large family, himself, they
allow his opinions on babies are of no
account, anyway. The president would
best keep awhile longer to the vague
and safe seclusion of the Yellowstone
region.
The Wabash railroad trouble has
been settled, an important concession
on the part of the road having been
made. This concession increases the
pay of trainmen on the western division
from 12 to 15 per cent, affecting a great
body of men and a large range of ship
ping country. The men on the middle
and eastern divisions will also receive
an advance in wages when competing
roads grant similar advances. This is
a most satisfactory outcome of the long
and bitter pay war that has been rag
ing "on the banks of the Wabash, far
away."
Vermont legislators who have in the
past helped to slaughter weekly pay
ment bills may feci themselves upheld
and vindicated in their decisions by
the Indiana supreme court which has
just held such a law unconstitutional.
The court declares that a weekly pay
ment law is in conflict with the bill of
rights and also with the fourteenth
amendment to the federal constitution.
If anybody wants a crown, let him
go to Morocco. The sultan of that
country has one that he wants to give
away. He is a progressive man, with
a leaning toward automobiles and tele

and so the crown has become a burden
to the sultan. No automobilists need
apply.
Interpretations of the license law

TIMELY STATE TOPICS,
And What Vermont Editor! Have to Say Con
cerning Them.
Vermont has got almost as many
prospective governors as it has "colo
nels. " Barre Telegram.
School meetings will soon be in or
der. What action will be taken on the
proposition that the average salary of
a Vermont school teacher is less than
half of a day laborer's? Vergennes En
terprise. The Rutland News is inclined to
think that C. J. Bell's chances of be
ing governor of Vermont next term are
good because he is not troubled with a
"barrel." Heretofore the fact that a
man had a "barrel" was not a particu
lar deterrent to his chances of being
governor, but it is stated that a new
feeling has come in with the "new
Vermont." The bars should not be
put up against a man just because he
is rich, neither because he is poor.
Quality should be the controlling fac
tor. Barre Times.
An Explanation is in Order.
We do not even yet see any light
breaking in the St. Johnsbury firma
ment. Here is a town enjoying a con
sistent prohibition record on paper
which has maintained an agency that
has done a liquor business mounting
up into the thousands. Its agency is
gone, the drug stores are not licensed
and the town is apparently dry. Now
where is St. Johnsbury to get a supply
of liquor? The drink habit of St. Johns
bury is no gentle thing of beer and
light wines. Year in and out its liquor
agent has been buying from 150 to 200
gallons of pure alcohol per month at
about $2.50 per gallon and selling it
for $4 per gallon. This constituted
practically half of the agency business.
The alcohol customers of the agency
were in the habit of "spilling" it;tbat
is, diluting the alcohol with water by
adding 100 per cent. Thus nearly 100
gallons of alcohol a week was consumed
as a beverage by prohibition St. Johns
bury before the closing of the agency.
How do these alcohol drinkers manage
it now? It really is a serious question.
Rutland Herald.
"Is the State Twiner
"There is a tide in the affairs of
men." Candidates ripen just as other
opportunities do. But many a first
class Vermonter has been put aside for
four years just because he lived on the
wrong side of the mountains, a second
rater was chosen in his stead whose
only recommend in public favor was
that he 'did live on the right side
of a' clump of pine trees, and
than, when the probation were over,
the changes of time and circum
stances had wiped out the opportunity
of the man who should have been elect
ed in the first place. The "mountain
line" has been the dead line of An
dersonville to more than one political
life.
The man Vermont should elect gov
ernor is the best man in the whole
state, no matter where he lives. The
territory is not too large, at best, nor
likely to produce more good men than
we can use. The best will be,nono too
fjood, but it is the very madness of fol
y to sometimes ignore the best and
take up an admitted inferior because
it is the "turn" of this side or that
side to have the governorship. Is the
state twins, that the plaything must
be passed from one to the other in ro
tation, or is this one autonomous state
and its governorship the servant of the
whole people and not the bauble of the
Koliticians of a district? St. Albans
lessenger.
The Aspirations of the "Sacred City."
' Our St. Johnsbury neighbors are not
at all discouraged on account of the
falling through of the Judge lde boom.
The Caledonian immediately throws
out another reminder that the "Sacred
City" would be a nice place for the
governor to live in. Political comment,
coming from that direction at this time
is of particular interest, for it is more
than likely that Caledonia county will
be the headquarters for one of the two
factions that take part in the campaign
of 1904. The purpose of that faction
will be the defeat of any local option
measure. TheCaledoniansayi: "Judge
Ide's announcement that he will return
to the Philippines in Augur.. and re
sume his duties on the commission re
moves a formidable candidate in the
governor race, but 'there are others. ' "
St. Johnsbury can furnish at least-two
if necessary, ex-Senator Ross and Alex
ander Dunnett, and Caledonia county
has another eligible in Charles J. Bull
of Walden. Then there is Robert J.
Kimball of Randolph, Frank Plumley
of Nortbfield, Horace W. Bailey of
Newburv, Curtis S. Emery of Chelsea,
J. L. Martin of Brattleboro, W. E.
Johnson of Woodstock, Zed Stanton of
Roxbury, and last but not least J. A.
DeBoer of Montpelier. In fact, we
are inclined to think Mr. DeBoer is
the unknown character the Brattleboro
Phoenix suggests. The calling of Mr.
DeBoer "an unknown character" is
not entirely pleasing to Washington
county. Barre Telegram.
A Chance Worth Trying.
This last proposition of the bureau
of forestry to allow any state to find
out where it stands without much cost
to itself is most generous. It would not
be a bad idea for those in authority in
Vermont to take steps toward accept
ing the offer. Vermont was naturally
well supplied with forests, but we think
few people realize the inroads that have
been made into the supply within the
last few years or the rapidity with
which the land is being literally
"stripped" in many parts of the state.
Our spruce trees are being searched out
in every corner and ruthlessly cut down,
large and small, for pulp wood or other
commercial purposes. Even the little
spruces which must be depended upon
to form the supply in coming years are
being sacrificed to the ax and every
year we see train load after train load
shipped out of Vermont in the shape of
Christmas trees. "Now the government
proposes to find out at great expense to
herself and tell us in what condition
our forests are, and we would like to
see it done. With this information once
in their possession Vermonters might
accomplish something. Certainly they
should not stop with the investigation
if it shows that the Vermont forests
are being wrecked. A state forester
will in the end become a matter of ne
cessity, and the sooner we find out his
value the less our timber lands will be
permanently damaged. First, however,
we want definite information to work
on and here is a chance to get it We
think it's worth trying. Rutland Her

There is considerable excitement
caused by the smallpox epidemic in
Irasburgh. Seven houses are quaran

have been exposed.
Capt. Louis Daniels of Vergennes,
onoof the oldest steamboat captains in
the service and woll known, up and
down Lake Champlain, died suddenly
Thursday night from heart failure.
The first day's sales of Louis N.
Wood of Montpelier under a second
class license last week amounted to
$280 and after consulting the license
commissioners Mr. Wood decided to
close bis place before 6 o'clock.
A two-year-old son of Anglo Trueba
6f South Barre was drowned id awash
tub Friday. The child had been miss
ing 20 minutes when search was made
and it was found dead in a washtub in
the kitchen. There was only a little
more than a foot of water in the tub.
Hattie Roberts, 10, employed in the
family of Heman Rice nt Westford,
committed suicide last week by taking
carbolic acid. She was a young.healthy
and pretty girl, and there is no known
reason for her rash act. Rumor has it,
however, that a love affair was respon
sible. The saw mill of L. G. Fullam & Son
at Ludlow was totally destroyed by fire
Thursday night, with its full contents
of lumber, and some of the lumber and
logs in the yard. Estimated loss, $10,
000; insurance, $8,250. A number of
men are thrown out of work. The mill
will probably be rebuilt.
Frank C. Partridge, who was offered
the position of agent for the United
States government in its presentation
of claims in Caracas before the arbitra
tion commission, has found it impos
sible to accept the trust The state
department, however, has been request
ed by the three European nations pre
ferring claims against Venezuela, to
name the umpires and Mr. Partridge
will accept as one.
There is said to be a movement un
der way in Barre to oust the board of
license commissioners of the city under
the section of the law which reads that
if a member of the board "becomes un
able to perform or neglects his official
duties, bis office shall at once become
vacant and his successor be appointed.
It is expected that at the next meeting
of the city council they will be asked
to declare the three positions on the
board vacant
The Wells, Lamson & Co. granite
manufacturing plant and water power
at North Barre and the company's
light granite quarry at Websterville
have been sold to Dr. V. C. Goodrich,
the selling price being $31,000, exclu
sive of a new cable way which, com
pleted, will cost iu the neighborhood
of $6,000. The quarry includes 13g
acres of good quarry land and the man
ufacturing plant and water power are
among the best in the city.
A post mortem examination has been
made of the body of Mrs. Joseph Mas
sey of East Hardwiek who died last
week as the result of a quarrel with
Mrs. Dan Aldrich. Death was found
to have resulted from sudden conges
tion of the Jungs caused by external
violence. Mrs. Aldrich was arrested
charged with taking Mrs. Massey's life.
Sufficient evidence was produced at
the hearing to warrant holding her in
$2000 bail for the grand jury.
Claude E. George of Marshfield, who
was tarred and feathered Jan. 19 by
four students while at Bcuool at Mont
pelier seminary, has brought suit
against James Howard, a student, to
recover $5,000 damages. Howard is the
only student on whom papers have yet
been served, but others in the case will
be taken on civil process as soon as
found. George was accused by stu
dents of "miying" and they broke inio
his room one night, gagged him and
administered a light dose of tar and
feathers.
Owing to the high rates charged by
the regular tire insurance companies
Burlington will organize this week a
co operative company. Property own
ers claim that the insurance rates have
doubled within a year and that they
have to pay for losses sustained by the
companies in other towns where the
fire nrotection is not as good as it is in
Burlington. This, they say, is not fair
and they will now organize a company
of a purelv local character, and think
from the fire record the city has had
they can save nearly 75 per cent, in
rates.
Several hundred pounds of special
photographic apparatus was brought to
Swanton Friday by the Anierican Bio
graph company of New York for the
purpose of securing a continuous pic
ture of the work of the United States
fish commission. It is planned to get
a continuous picture from the time the
fish landed in the net, during the pro
cess of spawning, until they are re
turned to the water. The picture will
be used as one of a series of the scenes
forming a part of the government ex
hibition of this branch of fish culture
at the St. Louis exposition.
The funeral of Thomas W. Wood, the
artist, took place from the Wood art
gallery in Montpelier, Friday after
noon, Rev. W. J. O'Sullivan and Rev.
Norman Seaver of Rutland officiating.
The body lay in state from 10 until 1
o'clock, and" was viewed by a large
number of people. The remains were
buried beside his wife in Green Mount
cemetery. Mr. Wood gave the art gal
lery which bears his name in trust to
the people of Montpelier. Mr. Wood's
will leaves the bulk of his property,
estimated at $30,000, to the Wood Art
gallerv. There are several small leg
acies of $1,000 and $500 to individuals.
Prof. J. W. Burgess is executor.
Judge Haselton in Rutland county
court Monday denied the motion of the
defendants to set aside the verdict in
the case of F. R. Patch Manufacturing
Co. vs. Protection Lodge, Internation
al Association of Machinists. He said
he considered that the evidence in the
case warranted the' verdict brought
April 3 Bnd ordered that judgment on
said verdict be entered. He did not
regard Juror Ingleson's conduct in ex
pressing an opinion of the case as of
sufficient weight to warrant a new
trial; he held that the man had done
wronir and ordered that Ingleson be
publicly reprimanded. The matter of
the new trial of the case will now be
taken to the supreme court The de
fendants moved for a new trial of the
case on the ground that one of the
jurors expressed his opinion of the
case before the close of the trial. The
plaintiffs filed counter affidavits deny

SERVE IT HOT !
Begin the Day With a Steaming Dish of Halt
Breakfast Food. Most Economical of All
Cereals.
That man-of-all-work, the human
stomach, needs a hot breakfast The
famous Mr. Dooley could not eat his
"ready-to-serve" cereal because he for
got bis nosebag. He realized that cold
fodder is all right for animals.but that
civilized man nee 'ed to begin the day
right with a dish of hot, appetizing,
nourishing Malt Breakfast Food.
This is the original and standard
malt-wheat cereal ; it is a food, not a
fad; it is to be cooked in thehome,and
not eaten out of the pasteboard box in
which it leaves the factory. Compare a
steaming-hot dish of Malt Breakfast
Food, served with cream and sugar,
with what Mr. Dooley calls "a scien
tific preparation - of burlaps" or a
' 'chemically pure dish made of the ex
terior of bath towels. " Is there any
comparison?
Malt Breakfast Food is a simple.hon
est food.delicious and satisfying. There
is nothing faddish about it, tbe very
name tells honestly what it is, the fin
est wheat, carefully and thoroughly
malted. There are two full pounds in
every package, and when prepared for
the table, according to the directions,
it goes just eight times as far, pound
for pound, as the ready-cooked foods.
Asa special inducement to try Malt
Breakfast Food a carbon photograph is
placed in every package. Large photo
graphs, without printing or advertis
ing, the same as sell for two or three
dollars in the art stores, are given in
return for coupons taken from the pack
ages. This is an unusual opportunity
to obtain valuable photographs.sui'able
for framing, without expense.
Your grocer will endorse everything
the manufacturers claim for Malt
Breakfast Fcod. He will tell you that
it gives better satisfaction than any
other cereal in bis stock, and that it is
the favorite with his best trade.
