KMTFBf P AT BRATTLFBORO POST OFFICE AS SECOND CLASS MAIL BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, OCT. 23, 1903 Good Citizenship. We are hearing a great deal about good citizenship now-a-days. It has been the keynote of many of he Bpeeches of President Roosevelt in his recent travels about the country. He has emphasized, again and again, the necessity of Individual uprightness, honesty, industry and true patriotism the oatriotism that cares for the welfare and honor of its country In peace as well as in war. And now ex-President Cleveland is sounding the same strain. In a speech before the Commercial club at Chicago last week, he showed the national peril that exists in class hatred and political corruption and urged Its extermination in the awakening of good citizenship to take its part in political action. Self satisfaction, cupidity and civic llstless ness, he declareshave brought about conditions in which the public life is saturated with the indecent demands of selfishness; "the corruption of our suffrage, open and notorious, the buy ing and selling of political places for money, the purchase of political favors and privileges, and the traffic in offic ial duty for personal gain. These things are confessedly common." He continued: "If our nation was built too much upon sentiment, and if the rules of patriotism and benignity that were fol lowed in its construction have proved too impractical, let us frankly admit it. But If love of country, equal oppor tunity and genuine brotherhood in cit . izenship were worth the pains and , trials that gave them birth, and If we still believe them to be worth preser vation and that they have the inherent vigor and beneficence to make our re public lasting and our people happy, let us strongly hold them in love and devotion. "Then it shall be given us to plainly see that nothing is more unfriendly to the motives that underlie our national edifice than the selfishness and cupid ity that look upon freedom and law and order only as so many agencies in aid of their design. Our government was made by patriotic, unselfish and sober minded men for the control and protection of a patriotic, unselfish and sober minded people. It is suited to such a people, but for those who are selfish, corrupt and unpatriotic it is the worst government on earth. It is time that there should be an end of self-satisfied gratification or pretence of virtue, in the phrase, 'I am - not a politician,' and it Is time to forbid the prostitution of the word to a sinister use. Every citizen should be politician enough to bring himself within the true meaning of the term, as one who concerns himself with 'the regulation or goyernment of a nation or state for the preservation of its safety, peace and prosperity.' This is politics in its best sense and this is good citizenship." Here is food for serious individual thought. President Roosevelt and ex President Cleveland are among the most practical and sensible thinkers of the day, and the fact that they lay great stress on the need of Individual honesty in this country makes it worth our consideration. Are we attending faithfully and unselfishly to the duties, small or great, that may come our way In the administration of government? Do we do all we can to have the public matters of our village, town or state attended to in such a, way as to pro mote the good of the community, or are we thinking of personal gain, or shirking indifferently, altogether out of it? If we are really good citizens and, as we undoubtedly believe, patriots, we shall think of these things, and keep ourselves on the straight line of active duty. National honesty and endurance begins in the individual. "Proctor Powerless" is the remark able heading of .a recent Washington news despatch. It should have been written in chapters Clement, Coon and Chinee with d sequel. Fraud in the postal service, fraud in Indian affairs, fraud In naturalization, fraud in the public lands, fraud in Cuba, fraud in the Philippines is it all turning into a great game of graft? And are we reajly to fly, at last? Dr. Greth says so and his airship is a successful surprise. With another coal strike In prospect, many of us will undoubtedly bo longing for Just this opportunity to "fly away and be at rest." It is not generally believed that "Spotter" Wilson's reputation was ap preciably affected by anything P. W. Clement may have said about him. As the Middlebury Register expresses it, "It is hard to hit a cipher with the rim cut off." The "open saloon" doesn't seem to have drawn on the savings banks very heavily thus far. We remember a few months ago a query was current very current concerning the relative draw ing power of the two institutions on a working man's money. At present the banks seem to be ahead. The Middlebury Register calls for an amendment of the law against rape, which makes the maximum penalty ten years at hard labor in state's prison, It thinks the courts phould have power to make the penalty Imprisonment for life and In certain cases death. But why not first try the effect of prompt and certain enforcement of the present law such as was given In the recent case of Edward Clark? There Is no use in making the penalty more heavy, as long we cannot even carry out the present one without delays and peti tions for pardons. What we want most is not more law but better exe cution of It. Some of the opponents of everything but state prohibition are unable to un derstand that the Important principle of a local option liquor law is that such a law is superior to a state pro hibitory law Just because It Is designed to be adaptable to local conditions and to be enforced by local authorities. The disgraceful failure of the former law was due to its failure to consider local conditions in the least. It is generally those people who are most neglectful of the little duties of life who are most clamorous of com plaint when the inevitable results of such neglect mature. If the voters of Burlington had all been wide awake and on hand at the last municipal elec tion, they would have missed a lot of trouble and expense later. But the outside public would have missed some interesting incidents and enlivening situations. Judge Grosscup, it is said, refuses to leave the federal bench in order to gain the difference between 16.000 and $100,000 a year. He believes that the opportunity he now has is something beyond what dollars could give r'v) and he prefers the opportunity. iir. Rockefeller made a similar contrast of values when he offered a million dol lars for a new stomach and Charles B. Rouss when he offered the same amount for his eyesight. Pension Commissioner Ware spoke a little piece to the clerks in his de partment the other day and doubtless made quite a hit in it. He declared that no more men should be loaded on to that office because they couldn't make a living outside; that In future promotions should be made from rec ords on merit only and not because this person might be the brother-in- law of a governor or that the nephew of a senator and that the recommenda tions of outsiders would debar em ployes from advancement and In the future mean dismissal. It looks as though the pension force would have to get on to its Job in good earnest. MATTERS OF OPINION. Selected from the Editorial Columns of Our Esteemed Contemporaries. It Is a pity, as the St. Albans Mes senger so well says In another column, thnt any In a country like ours, should try to breed restlessness and discontent among the people. 'While it may be true that a certain sort of discontent Is an incentive to progress and upward endeavor, yet there are some things a good friend, a faithful wife and a ffee country, for examples with which one may well rest satisfied. To these are due honor, tender consideration and allegiance. To destroy public confidence In the foundation principles of our government is to be false to our own best interests and It is almost as reprehensible and quite as disastrous to let others do It. Follow Law, Not Publio Feeling. Randolph Herald and News. Courts are often averse to giving a speedy trial to prisoners accused of serious crimes because it is deemed unfair to summon them to the bar when public feeling Is bo excited as to make it improbuble that they would receive Justice. But on the other hand Is it not possible, by long delay, to postpone trial until the publio has partially or wholly lost Interest In the mattei until the sense of wrong la UulleU I pity and sympathy come to the a. ' if the accused? Indeed, Is not ti, . . ' n the case? And is there not a gru. . danger of a miscarriage of Justice at the end of a long Judicial inquiry when all the facts are cold and the impulse wanting as when the of' fense is fresh in mind? It sometimes seems as If the sole purpose of criminal procedure were to afford the accused every possible opportunity to escape. The laudable desire to protect Inno cence so far overshadows the demand of the Injured for redress and of the general public for security that the whole system Is bent and twisted in that direction. It jame thus, doubt less, as a heritage from the times when our ancestors, after centuries of op pression at the hands of tyrants, whose accusation was equivalent to doom, finally threw oft the yoke and es tablished a new order under which, as someone has facetiously said, no In nocent, and but few guilty, ones ever suffered. Punishment loses half its purpose when long and needlessly de ferred. "The law's delays" we still have In Increasing measure. To them are to be attributed much of the popu lar disgust and contempt felt for law and those engaged In administering it. THE MEDDLER -If lite coat fits put it on" The numerous persons who have had occasion for the past several winters to do a little Inward cussing at me Icy condition of the sidewalk between the Brattleboro house and Dutton i marble shop will be grateful to know that Roud Commissioner Eames is do. ing his best to do away with the cause of so much profanity. The water which causes all the trouble be tween the two points mentioned comes from a seam in the rocks beneath which there must be an unfailing Bpring. Mr. Eames has set a drain age pipe into the seam and hopes that in this way the annoyances; of the past winters will be averted. Whether his hopes will be fulfilled cannot be foretold but he deserves thanks for making the attempt In any case, There Is nothing more aggravating to a man In a hurry to catch a train than to be obliged to traverse several yards of glare Ice, especially when an inch or two of snow conceals the smooth surface. The prevailing epidemic of murder In Vermont Is not In any way due, as the Swanton Courier would make out. to recent newspaper discussion of the abolition of the death penalty. It might more reasonably be ascribed In a measure to the present practical abo lition of the death penalty by means of the pardoning power. We fail to see what deterring power there can be In a law that is never, or hardly ever, en forced. Better to have one sufficiently in concord with public sentiment to command respect and enforcement. "One word Is too often profaned." The news items concerning Vermont's latest murder say that Bean and Root, the principals In the case as reported were In "love" with the same woman, the wife of their employer of the saw mill. Love is the only word we have for the purest and most unselfish affec tion the human heart knows the very essence of goodness and kindness which the Bible calls God. Real love never engendered hate or murder. A human being "In love" may sacrifice himself or his own happiness for the object of his affection, but never the happiness of that object. Call the murder the outcome of physical in fatuation or animal passion, as it doubtless was. Love could have had no part In It. Editor Parker of the Bradford Opin ion contributes a good "word" to the editorial columns of the last issue of that paper, In an interesting review of the 22 years under its present man agement It Is a cheerful and optimis tic view that he takes of his town and High-Minded Patriotism, Awake! St. Albans Messenger. Vermont is facing a serious problem in conditions at Barre, perhaps a cloud no bigger than a man's hand now, but one of a nature ail too quickly spread ing. The most pernicious and danger ous political and social doctrines of the age are being disseminated among the least Intelligent, least responsible part of our population. It Is time. If ever it was time, that the patriotic citizen ship, the high-minded citizenship of this state, regardless of its differences of race, religion, politics, social estate, or financial condition, should stand to gether for the support of those ele ments of self-government and civic responsibility that are characteristi cally American and upon which the safety of our American Institutions rests. And In the pressing need of the hour it is truly lamentable that men who ought to be thus united with their neighbors should go wandering off after the delusions of socialism, should be seeking to destroy public confidence in our governmental policy, should be turning the heads of young men and the inexperienced with a pic turesque bewilderment of impractical Ideas, undermining their faith In the j principles upon which the nation was I founded. They are breeding a great nebulous mass of aimless discontent and restlessness among our people and dividing the house In the face of Its foe. 'If you don't succeed at first try again without wasting any time" must be the motto of the steeple-Jack who painted the smoke stack of the elec trie station Saturday, To many such a Job would seem impossible even if they had the whole summer In which to accomplish It and all the help they wanted. The young man in question however, completed the work alone Inside of 24 hours. On Friday after noon he began by circling all the guy wires with a small cord to which he attached a stout rope. This was drawn over each guy until he had both ends in his hands, and the rope with tackle attached was then worked up ward unrll It circled the stack In noose Just above the point where the guys are riveted. The climber then seated" himself In his swinging chair and easily hauled himself to the top of the chimney already to begin his work. His preparations were accom plished In comparatively no time simply because petty delays did not seem to worry him. He didn't stop to find any fault with luck when his cord broke Just before the guys were encircled but Immediately did the work all over again; neither did he act discouraged because the last guy seemed to offer unsur mountable difficulties but Just kept pegging steadily away until he accom plished what he set out to do. In fact his determination and perseverence could well be taken as an example by many people whose daily work com pared with that of climbing chimneys Is the biggest sort of a snap. Lots of Room for Travel. Middlebury Register. For a little state Vermont Is it in some things. There are 182 rural free delivery routes already in operation iind more soon to start. The Influence of Locality on Opinion. Collier's Weekly. The advantages of state government were never more nntlv illustrated than its conditions at the end of this period !nt nrPS,M1, a state h.ilf black to receive Issuing New Licenses. The decision of the Brattleboro li cense commissioners to grant hearings for applications for new licenses to sell liquor in place of the licenses revoked is gratifying to the friends of temper ance, among whom are included the large majority of local optionists. The commissioners are certainly right in deciding that they ought to have power to grant new licenses. The general state and local opinion sup ports them. The law however provides for the issuance of a certain number of licenses, which under certain condi tions must be revoked; it specifies that licenses revoked for death or bank ruptcy of the licensee may be reissued. The inference is that other licenses re voked may not be reissued. - The Massachusetts prison colony scheme is a good one If properly work ed. Why should not Vermont try a similar experiment on some of her worn-out, abandoned farms? The land might be reclaimed and made profitable and with it, now and then, a human being. What better medi cine Is known for perverted manhood than large doses of out door work, with wholesome food and strict yet kindly discipline? If any mercy should be shown the convicted criminal, it should be that of plenty of healthful labor. of labor, as well he may. The prin ciple which he adopted at the begin ning of his newspaper career niul which he says he Is now sure is the correct one, in large measure explains his success. "That principle was not to use the columns of the paper to punish our personal enemies, to treat everyone with impartiality, to omit all tainted news, not to Injure the feelings of people by innuendos and insinua tions and to publish a clean, up-to-date paper." , The Klondike is a big stake to set on the question of where the coast begins and the ocean ends. That's what made the answer so interesting. And that's why the answer, which gives the Klondike to the United States, is such a strain on Canadian loyalty. For Can ada, in great bitterness of spirit, de clares that the mother country has sacrificed its interests to find favor with a great and powerful nation. The United States, believing in the Integ rity of its own claim, and having gained it, is not greatly interested in the analysis of motives. James L. Martin for Governor. It Is said that Hon. J. L. Martin of Brattleboro might possibly be induced to run for governor. We doubt It. It would be leaving a fat Job for a lean one. with little to gain. Bennington Banner. The Honorable James L. Martin would be a sorry spectacle running for any elective office. The ghost of the Mussey fiasco would be one that would down him. Some men can be elected to office; others cannot. Rutland News. Many a man has been elected gover nor of Vermont with a bigger handicap to overcome than the one suggested by the Rutland News. For instance there was I.ut what is the use of digging up ancient history? ' The Ludlow Tribune finds a hopeful outlook for the good citizenship of the Barre anarchists in our laws of com pulsory education. Young Italians, it thinks, will absorb the American spirit by degrees in our public schools and. growing up, will be Americans, not ex iled Europeans. By educating the boys and girls to a self respecting Ameri can standard and by restraining the elders with a sure, strong hand, it thinks we may subdue the evil of an archy. This is a sane and reasonable view, one worthy of an American, and should be more widely taken. - Royalty hag caught on to the modern merger scheme and will try the experi ment of co-operative reigning. In this venture as in that of co-operative housekeeping, it would seem that un limited tact will be the prime essential. Here's luck to the united Scandinavian empire! Rev. John Watson (Ian Maclaren) predicts for the world the greatest re ligious revival since the first century when Rome succumbed to the teach ings of Christ. He says that the opu lent and the proletariat will be most benefited by this new coming of Christ into the hearts of the people which Is soon to take place and that these have been alienated from Christ in a way the church has no conception of. If the author of "Beside the Bonnie Brier Bush" is a true pro phet, we can afford to be patient with the socialist-anarchist agitators and the supercilious trusts as well, for their race is almost run. , J United States Marshal Field of Rut land, having been summarily dismissed for negligence in permitting the escape of some Chinameo recently, the whole congressional delegation headed by Senator Proctor, goes on the warpath. Those who have no reason to wish any thing but good luck to Field, will be at a loss to explain why the discharge of a federal employe for neglect of duty should necessitate immediate and con certed protest from the politicians. If Mr. Field was removed for good cause, protest is unnecessary; if not, protest is a strange criticism upon the higher authorities who removed him, and would not his case be strong enough in itself to secure the president's inter vention if deserved? Senator Proctor, having once obtained office for a friend, should let him shift for himself and hang on to it if he can. color legislation from states entirely white is pure injustice. If Abraham Lincoln had lived, the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments would not exist in their present form. The bitterness of the south would be less. Her con dition would be belter. Her problems would be easier. Lincoln was docile to experience. He knew a question before he decided it. He felt his way. His Idea of reconstruction was to put the task in the hands of those south erners in each state who had favored the Union, gradually extending it; not to deliver it to blacks and to white northern adventurers. Lincoln was able to express abstract principles with tremulous eloquence, but principle nev er existed for him In a vacuum, sep arated from actual conditions, as it does for many northern orators and publicists, who would settle race prob lems with simple moral laws. The negro, question means one thing In Georgia, another in Mississippi, a third In Maryland, and little In Pennsyl vania. Let national politics have as little as possible to do with a question of which the solution differs with the locality. The people who are doing a large amount of kicking about the new local option law must have failed to note the working of the statute In towns where no license was voted last spring. Compared to the old prohibitory farce with its notorious town agency Bystem the new law is a regular W. C. T. U. affair. In the "Lily White" county of Caledonia where not a single town Joined the license ranks there la a drouth unequalled within the memory of man. The St- Johnsbury hotels, some of which formerly did a thriving business In the booze line, are now obliged to depend solely upon bread and butter for their bread and butter, and the topera who can't afford to buy stuff by the case have to go thirsty or bum a drink of their neighbors. This condition of affairs Is the same all over the state; when the majority of people in a town ask in town meeting for pro hibition they get what they ask for. A Londonderry citizen expressed the situation when he sp.ld that the drouth j In that town was so absolute that the tipplers take off their hats to the shades of the town agency and quaff Jamaica ginger on the side. The Meddler. Tangled Wires Nervousness. The delicate nerves of the body are nature's telegraphic wires. You know what happens if wires are crossed and tangled. Disordered nerves cause nervousness, irritability, loss of sleep and finally nervous prostration. Dr. Greene's Nervura The World's Greatest Tonic revitalizes the nerves and restores sound sleep and perfect health. Mrs. Elizabeth White, ot tflack Kock, Lonn,says; " I was troubled a long time with my nerves, and could not sleep. I had nervous prostration, and tried many things, but they did not help me. I thought I had heart trouble, for I suffered with pains in my left side and could not lie down. Nervura cured me. I could not sleep, and sent and got a bottle. I had not taken it long before I began to sleep and my nerves became stronger. I kept getting better. , " I took six bottles, and then I was well. I cannot tell how much it has done for me. I recommend it to everyone." All druggists recommend and seV Dr. Greene's Nervura. For medical advice free, write Dr. Greene, 34 I emple Hace, Boston BRATTLEBORO BUSINESS DIRECTOR fJEO H. OOBHAM If.

Telephone call IS-il New York does not take kindly to the "restoration" of "Prophet Elijah' Dowle. The people crowd Into his meetings but they rush out again as soon as they have gratified their curl osity, regardless of his protestations and when he waxes wrathful, they hiss him. The New York ministers do not like him, either. Dr. Parkhurst, the reformer, has written an open letter condemning his speech as "effervescent wrath and coarse Invective" and tell ing him that he cannot bully people into Zionism. Dr. Henson of Brook lyn says of him: "Balaam, the prophet. rode on an ass, but Dowle, his suc cessor, requires a great many thous and asses to support him. The origin al Elijah was fed by food brought by the ravens. Elijah III is fed abund antly by a great flock of gulls." "Pro phet" Dowle retorts that Parkhurst lies and that he "spanked that dirty boy Henson in Chicago" and now Henson Is carrying a knife for him. All of which, considering that minis ters of the gospel and an alleged re ligious "restoration" are involved, strikes us as sickening. A Breeder of Robbers. Burlington Clipper. The fee system is a back number a relic of the past and not one of value, either. It has worked more harm than a little. It has made honest men dis honest and of a soft-shelled thief it has made a calloused robber. There never was a redeeming feature attach ed to it It is a grafter's proposition from start to finish an opportunity to rob legally. If an office is worth any thing It is worth a salary with no ex tras attached to it. The fee system has made some Vermont office holders wealthy. The Essex county sheriff who traveled 116 mites in a single day to be feed for but 12 miles Is an excep tion to the general rule, as applied to sheriffs of the state. Why, there are sheriffs and ex-sherifTs in Vermont this day who could write a book on fees! Jobs Mustn't Be Shirked. 'Springfield Republican. The removal of Fred A. Field of Rut land from the office of United States marshal of Vermont is drastic, and shocks his neighbors, we are told, but Attorney-General Knox and President Roosevelt have done the right thing.

None of us can afford to have the standard placed any lower that that, whether in public or private business; find particularly Is this true of government work.

Greene. The discovery of Mi-o-na, the re markable flesh-forming food that builds up good, healthy, solid flesh and makes thinness and scrawnlness a thing of the past has revolutionized medical practice in certain lines. Its power to do all that Is claimed for it was so clearly proven to George E. Greene that he has sold MI-o-na with the understanding that if it fails the purchase price was to be refunded. George E. Greene certainly exhib ited courage In taking up this method of selling Mi-o-na, but the results have fully proven his judgment that the Mi-o-na treatment for-stomach troubles, emaciation, general weakness and run down condition is the only ef ficacious and reliable cure. Mi-o-na possesses healing and soothing qualities that make it espec ially valuable in cases of chronic indi gestion and dyspepsia. Two or three tablets taken each day in connection with the regular food prove it a true flesh former. All that many a woman lacks to be positively pretty is a little more flesh on her face. To look haggard or not fat is never becoming. The use of MI- o-na will cure this defect With every 50c. box of Ml-o-na that George E. Greene sells, he will give a written promise to refund the money if it does not give an increase in flesh and restore strength. What a trifling cost this Is if it makes you well; if it fails, the expense is absolutely nothing. TAB L 8. EDWARDS Hernial, office and ret ' ilence U Prospect atreet.
