Both conventions were called at the same hour and immediately appointed conference committees to take up the question of a county ticket. The con ferees met in the Brooks House at 1 o'clock and shortly after three were readv to report. The ticket as prepared bv them was unanimously chosen by both conventions as was also the plat form drawn by resolutions committees from both gatherings.

E. S. Childs was unani n ouslv elected. Mr. Childs then took the floor and in a concise speecn W laid the situation before the dele gates He said that under tlw regime of the republican party the expenses of state administration had increased from $105,0UU to ifBou.vuu "i .- with nothing to show for the increase. He then spoke briefly of the bright ness of tho democratic prospects for thl election of 1900.

STEP TOWARD GOOD ROADS ENTHUSIASTIC COUNTY CONVEN TION HELD HEBE TUESDAY. Officials of National Good Boada Asso ciation Tell How the Work Can Be Accomplished A Brief Address by Winston Churchill Organization. The Windham county good roads convention, which has been talked of so much during tho past few weeks, was held Tuesday in throe sessions morning, afternoon and evening. The morning aud afternoon sessions which were held in Festival hull were well attended by delegates from every town in the county. The evening session was held in the "auditorium. In the morn ing there were about I'm present, in the afternoon about 2.10 and in the evening about .rilM gathered. One of the attractions of the day was a speech by Col. Winston Churchill of Cornish, X. II., who is campaigning for the re publican nomination for governor of New Hampshire. The morning was taken up by ad dresses of welcome and responses. The afternoon was used in hearing lectures on construction and maintenance of roads bv Col. William H. Moore, presi dent of' the National Good Roads asso ciation, and an address on organization and legislation by Hon. Wellington E. Lnueks, national organizer of the na tional association.

When the question or ap pointing a resolutions committee came up Mr. Shanks moved that a commit tee of three be named to confer with the democrats on the question of reso lutions. He said the democrats and independents were working for a com mon olvject-Mhe defeat of the machine which has so long controlled Vermont politics, aed he fe'.t sure they would have no difficulty in uniting on a platform. Mr. Shanks 'a'-' motion was carried, and the chair named G. T. Shanks, J. W. Fnrnsworth and W. J Rafter of Rockingham and E. M. An gicr of Brattleboro. Adjournment was then taken until 2 o'clock.

Rutland Herald. " Thrift v fellows," is Lou Payn's happy name for tho kind of cattle Hearst agents are buying in the inte rior of the state. They appear to be, indeed, for the most part brokendown democratic petty politicians aud dis gruntled republicans. New York Even ing Post. Much like the Clement strikers in Vermont in fact. This last slur is. flung by a discred ited Proctor organ. The main body of our party and a large percentage of the other party are uniting to down a demoralizing machine in this state. It mav serve the Proctor organ's purpose, to call these voters who number over half the electorate of the state, "cat tle;" it may serve the 1'roctor organ n purpose to call the thousands 01 lumuu democrats "brokendown democratic pettv politicians" and tho mass of fu sion' republicans "disgruntled." This is the kind of "cattle," by the way, that Vermont sent out to save the un ion, men who trampled down party lines when the crisis came. Another Proctor organ recently sneered at the blacksmiths, lunchroom proprietors, hack drivers, barbers and so on who attended the independent convention from its town. Here are more cat tle ' ' in the eyes of the Proctor organs. All classes who revolt against intoler able political conditions are liable to be denounced for attacking those re sponsible for such conditions; but ma chine organs are getting to be so un dignified in their treatment of the fu sionists that the whole thing reacts upon their own heads. ' was ot uraiu.j"". - - W1 -ti,,nm. Lha'm John E. Gale of Guilford then moved that the chair appoint a com mittee on resolutions. The motion was "uanbnously voted and the com mittee was appointed as follows: J. L. mittee was " I Davenport of BW.S.AnetOfnWMt bum B. F. Sleeper 01 . , G B.

He . . .... &t. .,n;...l in.lttutrii.a spoke at icngtn on uw .... of Brattleboro and the men who have from timo to time shed lustre on me place bv the might of their genius, of tho men great and good in both their public and their private life who have built up in this town , industries of world-wide fame and unrivalled in size bv any similar manufactory in the .l.l refcrrinu to the Jvstey urgun works. .He then went on to tell how it was the dutv of everyone present to do his best for the good of the com munity, nnd said the greatest Kouu that could be done at the present time was for each one tu give his assistance to help along tho good roads movement. Charles O. Bobbins then delivered the address of welcome from the town, speaking briefly on tne neeu 01 s.-u roads and cordinlly welcoming the vis itors to the. town. Owing to the ab sence of J. C. Day, president of the Bellows' Falls board of trade who was to make the address of welcome from the countv, A. A. Dunklee of ernon welcomed the national association to the county in a brief but hearty man ner. , , . ', Col. W. H. Moore, president of the National Good Roads association, re plied at length to the addresses of wel come. He heartily thanked the dele gates the board of trade, and the local press for the large amount of work done in promoting the convention. He then gave a brief history of the good roads movement and told what it had accomplished in 19 states, tie aiiBjeu the fears of increased taxation which the adoption of the idea might involve bv saving that if the money spent dur ing the past 25 years had been expend ed as it should have been the good roads would already have been paid for and enjoyed at the same time. There is no economv iu building roads at $20 or $30 per mile. It is money and time wasted to do so little. Col. Moore said there ought to be a de partment for teaching the construction of highways, in the schools of the coun try Such a department had already been established at Cornell and en dewed to the extent of $50,000. The farmers pay 78 per cent, of the taxes n,,d do not get their share of the na tion's bounty in return. Of the .Jo civilized governments of the world the United States is the only one which does not maintain at least some state road at its own expense. He then dis cussed the- Latimcr-Brownlow bill which has been before the house of representatives for the past three ses sions. The bill provides for the appro priation of $24,000,000 to be paid to the several states in three yearly in stallments of $8,000,000 each, accord ing to the population of each state. Each state was to raise an amount equal to the amount paid b the na tional government. Had the bill been framed to make the government pay the work to be done by the committee Mr. Pierce, chairman or the conven tion, mado the following appointments: Committee on resolutions: Dr. Henry D, ilolton of Brattleboro, chairman, H. If. Shaw of Marlboro, J. W. Melendy of Londonderry, John H. Merrifield of Newfnne. M. I. Reed of Ver non, F. B. Pier of Jamaica and W. F. Walker of Dunimerston; committee on organization, C. O.

Jaquith of Guil ford; committee on registration, J. h. dale of Guilford and G. E. Fox of Brat tleboro. The meeting was then ad journed until 2 o'clock. Afternoon 8ession. Col. Moore opened tho afternoon meeting by a lecture on tho construc tion of dirt, gravel and macadam roads,: illustrating his remarks bv a large chart. At the conclusion of his-lecture an opportunity was given the delegates to usk any questions which might oc cur to them iu regard to difficulties of road building and maintenance. The idea of sprinkling roads witn oil was discussed and approved. Col. Moore told how tho oil was appueu. -ur. Loucks followed Col. Moore with a lec ture on organization and legislation. He told of the increase of the cost of haulage over poor roads in .contrast to good roads. Of all the work that the national association has done not a single piece 01 iuu - ---- been impeached. Concluding, ne ioiu of the increase iu value of the growtug crops throughout each season, saying that Secretary Wilson has estimated the increase to be $2,500,01)0 every day. Five minute talks on the conditions in various county towns were nearu ir.m. S M. Nutting of Westminster, a. Merrifield of Newfnne, and I. V. Her of Jamaica. . Winston Churchill, the lamous nuvee who had been induced to stop on on bis wav to Hinsdale, a. ji.. whs 1.1 this ioiut' introduced by Chairman Pierce. Col. Churchill touched humor ously "I'''" h's lack of preparation and then" went on to tell of the great need which every state, and Vermont espe cially, has of good roads. He enlarged 011 t'he beauty of the scenery along the route from Lake Chatnpluin to this town, and said that what Vermont must do is to exploit its scenery. One of the best means of accomplishing that end, Col. Churchill thought, was to build good roads so that the people of the country can come in, see for themselves and carry away glowing re ports of its beauty. Mr. Churchill told .ve t. hnd been so charmed by the prospect that lie bought a place netiT here at his second visit. He thought Vermont a good place for . winter k.,... a. n-pll ns summer homes and .;,i n,t nil that is needed is good -i, . Anu: iifaa rn tne from the town, , roads to a ..

Churchill. After the recess the report V i,a volution committee was1 given bv Dr. Holton and unanimously ccvr.- ed.

The town committee did their part in advertising the rally; the band played well; the speakers were able; all that was lacking was a few republicans to make an audience. The republicans of Rockingham might as well be told now as later that no re frigerator carriages will be sent out to get them to the polls September 4 even if it is a hot day. Monday was a hot day, fearfully hot, and just before the hour of the rally it began to rain a bit. The plan was to have the band play in tho Square and have the speakers speak from the opera house balcony. Because of the rain, however, it was announced that the rally would take place in the opera house.
