The proposed amendment to the vil lage charter introduced in tho legis Jatiire Inst week by Bcprcnentntivo Gib son is published in full elsewhere in Th ISoformor nnd will doubtless bp rend with care by all interested in the local water question. The amendment pertains entirely to village ownership and control of a water system and Hs introduction is pursuant to the resolu tion adopted at the last special village meeting. The bill bus been referred to the committee on municipal corporations and a hearing on the bill will probably Vic given next week. There is no doubt that every taxpayer in the village be lieves that sufficient power should be delegated the villntre to enable it to acquire a water system if such is tho wish of the majority of tho voters. There are some features of Mr. Gibson's bill, however, which need discussion. Section 3 gives the village the right to elect a water board of not more than 12 or less than five memlers, which shall have power subject to the control of the corporation to install a water sys ' tern. This is well if the people of the village are satisfied that such a plan is better than leaving the matter to the buililTs. But further along in the sec tion we find that "tho votes taken by said village nt its meeting held Jan. 10, mod, are hereby legalized, and said water board then elected shall remain in oflicc as such until their duties are performed nnd completed or their suc cessors are elected." Is this a wise plan? Ts it reasonable to ask the legis lature to legalize actions taken with the knowledge that they were illegal and in the face of strongly niado objections! .'e think not. There is doubt, more over, whether the legislature has any constitutional right to put the present water board in power. The legislature may create an office, but it is not cus tomary, to say the least, for it to say who shall be the officer. In section 16 it is provided that ab action taken under the provisions of the act or relating to matters therein set forth shall be by vote of the majority of the legal voters of the village pres ent and voting at a meeting duly warned and holden. This, of course, gives tho village the power to decide as to what shall be done toward municipal ownership, but it does not allow the voters an opportunity to say whether the power delegated 4y the charter to the village, its bailiffs and water board is what is wanted. When, in 1715, a bill was first introduced in the legis lature amending the village charter in regard to municipal ownership of a water system, the committee on cor porations would not report it favorably until the following clause was intro duced: "This act shall not take effect until accented bv said village by a ma jority of the legal voters of said village at a meeting duly warned and liolilen for that purpose, nor until assent there to in writing of persons representing a majority of the grand list of said vil lage shall have been obtained." Amend ing a village charter is a highly im portant proceeding, especially when such amendment gives the village the right to bond itself to the extent of $400,000. It is not enough that the citi zens ask for such legislation. They should be given the right to decide on its acceptance or rejection after the exact scope of its power is put before them. FISH AND GAME LEGISLATION. At the risk of being accused of de voting too much space to the discussion of fish and game legislation we bespeak the attention of the joint committee on game and fisheries to the resolutions passed by the Windham County Fish and Game Protective association at a recent meeting. These resolutions de clare in favor of an open season on . partridge and all other game birds from Sept. 1 to Dec. 1, with a limit of five birds of one kind in a day nnd 30 of a kind in a season. Both these recom mendations seem fair. The present open season is from Sept. 1 to Jan. 1, nnd it is stated that the committee on game and fisheries desires to cut off the month of September. To us this looks like a near-sighted policy. Aside from being -the most enjoyable month in which to hunt, September is the time when the turds are given the most protection on account of the leaves on the trees. Then, too, the flight woodcock are fre quently "one by Oct. 1, and the change would mean abolition of the sport they offer. If it is thought wise to shorten the open season on birds, December is the month to curtail. Little pleasure comes from hunting at that time, and the sport derived from knocking a chilled grouse from the top of a spruce sapling is tame compared to that which comes from flushing a covey in the beauty of an early autumn forest. In regard to trout fisTiing, the reso lutions ask that for Windham county the open season on trout be from April 1 to Aug. 1, instead of from May 1 to Aug. 1, as at present. This is at vari ance with the idea of the joint commit- . .4 1. ! - 4Un tee, wbh-b U in isvot oi raumnH . season open May 1!5 all over th ttate. We have spoken frequently about mo benefit lilmly to be derived from earlier opening of the trout season, Wit a rehenTsal of the more Iniportnnt ono will do no harm. At present every fish erman who ever goes out plans to go May 1 for the reason that tho streams under ordinary conditions offer the best sport at that time. The result Is the taking of so many trout the first day that tho sport thereafter is groatly im paired. In Cheshire county, J. II., where the season opens a month earlier, the first dnys usually find the wentheT so cold and the streams so high that fishermen go out more gradually nnd the sport continues good for a longer period. Then, too, many anglers la-come dis couraged after one ot two early season trips and leave the fish to multiply. Opening the season May 15 in this part of the state would mean good fishing for tho poacher nnd nothing for the Inw-nbidiug sportsman; it would make enforcement of tho laws mnch more difficult; it would decrease rather than increase the number of trout in our streams. The resolutions also ask that the open deer season remain the same nnd that hunters be allowed to kill either one buck or one doe; that a 10 license fee be chnrgod all non-resident hunters during the open season on deer and game birds, and that sawdust or other substances injurious to fish be excluded from all trout streams. All these re quests are reasonable and should be given careful consideration by the game and fisheries committee. We are glad to give space to a com munication from Congressman llaskins, in which he says he did not appear nt the last special village meeting as coun sel for Mr. Crowell or any one else, but in his capacitv as a citizen, voter nnd taxpayer. Mr. llnskius adds that he never has appeared at any town or vil lage meeting as counsel nnd is now too old to begin. It every attorney in lirat tleboro believed as Congressman lias kins does in this matter, our town and village meetings would more truly rep resent the wishes of the people. Older residents reflect with pleasure on the dnys when public matters were freeh and fearlessly discussed by such men ns Henry Smith, "Wicked" Alexander and others of equal renown nnd no law yer dared to dictate. It looks as if the hunters were all out two days last week for the game hunt. When the two sides counted up their game, ('apt. P. V. Carpenter s side counted 12.310 points nnd Capt. Clar ence Bradley's sid counted 0,0."0 points. The losing side paid for suppers for both sides, which they cheerfully did because they did not have to "tug" so much game along. Only one squir rel has been seen since the hunt, which was caui'ht by a cat. Greenfield Ga zette. We have always been opposed to these competitive slaughter-Costs, which are given the euphonious title f hunts. and we are therefore glad to learn that the one mentioned by our contemporary has fallen prey to the watchful pussy. It is also a relief that the lone surviv ing squirrel is still enjoying his liberty Careful consideration should be given the bill introduced in the legislature for the purpose of securing an appro priation of $1,200 for the maintenance of the state board of pharmacy. It seems to us that the importance of the work this commission is doing is hardly appreciated. The need of profiejent pharmacist is vital, and anything that tends to keep the standard of this pro fession at the highest possible point is protection to the life of the public. The state board of pharmacy has la bored steadily with this end in view, but will be unable to continue without pecuniary assistance, l-nder these cir cumstances there is but one alternative. The October number of the High School Dial contains a communication from a member of the class of '88 rela tive to the establishment of a school alumni association. The Reformer has frequently commented on the good that might come from such an organization and it here expresses the hope that tin appeal of " 'SS" will arouse sufficient interest to make possible the fulfilment of his suggestions. As the result of an outbreak of juve nile crime in Germany the authorities there have barred the American dime novel from that country. If the publi cation of such literature could be stormed altogether, it might have a good effect on juvenile crime in the United States. Life says that the attitude of think ing . beings toward the Hearst news papers is very much that of a musical critic to a hurdy-gurdy; by no means a bad comparison if it's true. We have heard nothing yet about the introduction of any pure food bills in the legislature. Who 'II be the next republican boss of Windham county? For the Land's Sake. Burlington Free Press. It must bo admitted that but for the charges which Mr. Clement made the beef disclosures reported by the Chit tenden county grand jury might not have come to light at this time. What, So Early? Hardwiek Ga'zette. It is said that candidates for guber natorial honors in 1908 are bobbing up in "political talk" in Montpelicr when the politicians get together. Z. M. Mansur, J. A. DeBoer and C. C. Fitts are among those mentioned. Better Honest Than Rich. Burlington Clipper. It is stated that Dr. Rich, ex-cattle ii,.nr nka Ma dismissal from tho board, very much to henrt.

This we gliwliy leave va tn untluirit v. but we cannot fail to state thnt it is far better to be honest than be rich either in reality or name. Principle Demands Change. . . Morrisville Messenger. The bill introduced in the house by John Kenter of Moutpelier designed to change the manner of choosing license commissioners from appointment by side judges to election direct by the people should pass. The very principle of the lieense law, local option, demands the change and every experience advises it. A Militia Housecleaning. St, Albans Messenger. The indications are that tho Vermont militia is in foT a quiet housecleaning. The bill providing for the summary re tirement of all its present field officers and tho re-election of successors will re sult, of course, in the re-election of the old men that are still wanted in the service nnd tho honorable retirement of those that are not. ' What Sarcasml Wilmington Times. Notice how almighty quick the legis lature killed that bill to have town meeting notices published in news papers r That's right, statesmen; every time von see a newspaper head hit it! A newspaper is only intended to print free church notices nnd obituary poems in. Besides, all editors are rich and don't need the money, and they'll print the notices for nothing. The Same Here. (Bennington Banner. The Banner is not of those who are trying to deerv the efforts of the offi cials of the national good rends associ ation recently here and at other places in this state. We believe they have done a good work in an educational wav and a work that was needed, and in Bennington, at least, they did not collect more than enough money to pnv their expenses. We suspect thnt much of the hue and crv nguinst them comes from rival agitation in the same direction. Good Roads Bubble Pricked. IMiddlcbury liegistor. A few weeks since the Burlington Free Press came out with an enthusias tic editorial of encouragement to n good roads scheme that was being exploited in the state by benevolent parties from Missouri. The scheme was attacked by the Register and one or two other papers as glaringly in the interest of outside parties. The bubble was pricked, the thing fell to pieces, and, as we understand, it was afterwards proven that it was in the interest of rubber nnd automobile trusts. What led the Burlington Free Press to champion so ,.i.l,.i,t a liimitmcf we do not know, but it certainlv leads ns to i.e suspicious of jgeltes, its judgment. THE WEEK IN THE WOELD. Great Events and Movement Which Are Making History. The storm which raged through the iViblH-au sea the latter part of last week was terriblv destructive, Huvana s loss is estimated nt 2,000,000, with a loss to her beautiful park system and shaded streets that money cannot Im mediately replace. Incalculable dam Biro is reported from Sulvndur, and Guatemala and Honduras are believed to have suffered to tho extent of sev eral million dollars. Tho Florida city that seems to have homo tho brunt of the American share of the hurricane is Miami, where the loss runs into tho thousands. The weather bureau's word from Washington Saturday wus: "Tho tropical hurricane which swept from Cuba to the Bahamas now appears to be raging with full forco about 2uo miles out in the Atlantic, its only shore effect being n falling barometer and a 25-mile wind blowing off the South Carolina coast. It is still hazardous for coasting craft along the middle and south Atlan tic coasts. Tho hurricane, according to Forecaster Henry of tho weather bu reau, seems to have been temporarily checked in its northeastward movement and has not advanced in the past 12 hours, nor do the indications point to nnv change in the next 24 hours. An other storm is developing in Colorado. A cvelonc of unprecedented severity, ac companied by a terrific downpour of rain, swept over the provinces of Ha Vllhll 11111 1 Piliar del Hio last week u'...1ii,.,Iiiv niolit and resulted in 20 Vnths in Havana nnd the serious injury of a dozen or more persons. The money loss is estimated at fully 2.(100,0011. The dead are all Cubans of the poorer class. The I'nited States cruiser union- lvn dragged her aschor until her stern grounded in the mud off ! Hegla. She got off Saturday morning milium in jury. The storni caused havoc and con fusion among the shipping in the har bor. Manv buildings were badly dam aged and nearly all the tre.-s in the city and suburbs were uprooted. The 2li0o American soldiers and marines at Camp Columbia were put to great inconven ience by tho storm. Nearly all the 40(1 tents iii camp were blown down, but there was little actual damage. Harry Kosdick. an army teamster with the 2-th infantry, from Sioux City, la., sus tained proluililv fatal injuries. He was crushed bv a tree which fell through the barracks in which he was, sleeping. Fred Sutdiffe of Fort Snelling had his head seriouslv injured and Thomas Shonealt of Heading, Pa., sustained in juries to his back. Should Become a Law. St. Albans Messenger. The bill introduced into the senate by Senator Luther B. Johnson of Orange removing the limit on the amount of money that can be deposited in savings banks in this state without being sub ject to taxation is based upon sound economic principles nnd should become a law. The only wonder is thnt Ver mont has not done this very same thing before, and the only explanation is, perhaps, that she has been for years ex perimenting in a somewhat aimless kind of a way with her financial and eco nomic policy and has been tardy in prof iting by the results of the experiences of the more active states around her. Depends on Point of View. I Hrandon I'nion. We wonder if the legislature of Ver mont during the present session will find time to legislate a little bit for the human family. During the past five or six meetings of this body, covering a dozen years or so. fish and game have been protected until it is almost a mis demeanor for the farmer's dog to bark in the fall of the year. If a halt is not called somewhere, tin- rural landowner will become a slave, by legislation, to the fish and game of Vermont. There is no doubt about the beauty of a deer when he stands on a pinnacle against a cloudless horizon, ami at such a time he deserves protection, but when he is eat ing the tops off the beets or destroying an oat field the farmer is the one that needs protection. Ornament to Federal Bench. Burlington Free Press. Those who attend sessions of the United States court in Vermont dur ing the coming few years will miss tho kindly and patriarchal, yet strong nnd intellectual face which for many years has looked down at lawyers ami laity from the bench. As has already been intimated in these columns. Judge Hoyt H. Wheeler has announced his desire to be placed on the retired list and his resignation will take ef fect upon the appointment nnd con firmation of his successor. No one could watch the dispensation of jus tice by Judge Wheeler without feeling instinctively that here is a man a good man, as well as a strong jurist. He had the love and respect of people generally as well ns of the bar. They knew thnt here was no disposition to encourage a resort, to the tricks of the trade, but nn earnest determination to administer the broad principles of jus tice and to see that the right pre vailed. Judge Wheeler has been an ornament to the federal bench and a jurist of whom any state would be proud. The esteem in which his lofty character and abilities as a judge are held else where, is evident from the extent to which he has been called upon to pre side over the sessions of the United States court in New York city, nnd his successor will deserve hearty con gratulation, whoever he may be, if he is able to leave behind linn as high a reputation for lofty integrity, spotless character, eminent capacity as a jurist and loveable qualities as man, as are todav the priceless possession of the Hon." Hovt H. Wheeler. I'misual excitement in connection with the reopening of parliament in London Tuesday was caused by the presence of about loo women suffra gists, many of whom, despite the pro tests of the police, made their way into the outer lobby of the house of com mons, with the intention of button holing the members in support of their movement. A number of the "suffra- as they are termed tin re, mouni- 1 ed vacant chairs in the lobby ami hegan to harangue the few members of parlia ment present in that part of the house. The police, after being reinforced, made a strategic advance against the in vaders, taking the women singly, and gradually ejected them, one by one, from the house. The most militant of the women struggled so desperately that two officers were required to remove them. Their hysterical shouting and screaming brought crowds of alarmed members of parliament from the house and the unwonted scene created un usual excitement. The opening of the sescion was devoid of sumptuous et re inonv or the appearance of royalty, as this' was merely a resumption of the business of the spring sessions. The formal opening of the commons oc curred this afternoon, an hour before the house of lords, thus enabling spec tators to witness the assembling of both bodies. Ambassador lieid ami other ambassadors ami ministers occupied seats in the diplomatic gallery of the house of commons. was at President Koosevelt is going to be subjected to tremendous pressure to accept another nomination for the presi dency. That some pressure of this sort would be exerted has been manifest for many months; lately it has become evi dent that the influences thnt will crowd upon Mr. Roosevelt to so far recede from his prior statements on this sub ject as to permit his supporters to make use of his name will be such' as have never been applied to an individual in the history of this countra Moreover, it has begun to appear doubtful whether Mr. Koosevelt will withstand the pressure, and to seem likely that he will consent once' more to lead his party as its presidential candidate. Two earth shocks destroyed about Ion feet of the temporary highway structure known as Vaughan 's bridge, which crosses the upper harbor at Portland, Me., Saturday night. The first shock felt at ( o clock, and tne sceonu (17. Both shocks were light, but w..re distinctly felt bv pedestrians. Ac companying the rumbling of the first shock was the sound made by the tim bers of the temporary structure crack ing, and the bridge began to sway. The bridge continued to sway nnd sink until the second shock, when a portion of it, about T.i feet from the South Portland shore gave way with a lurch, and sank about six feet. This portion also slid toward the harbor, n distance of eight feet. The railing was broken, and apparently the planking of the bridge was the' only thing that held the piling in place. The bottom, about 100 feet out from the South Portland shore, fell away and moved down stream in a southeasterly direction. It is feared that great damage has been done to the foundation of the new highwav bridge nearbv, for which a quarter' of a million dollars was appro priated recently. Snow, wind nnd cold extended over nearly the entire country between the Roek'v mountains and the Missouri river Monc'lav, causing heavy losses of live stock and of late fruit. Telegraph wires were prostrated and railroad schedules disarranged. The storm was almost unprecedented for severity ut this season of the year and takes rank, according to the weather bureau, with the snowfall on April 22 and 23, lSa. I'p to 6 o'clock Monday eveniug about 2d inches of snow had fallen in Denver. Much of this snow melted soon. While tho temperature on the plains fluctuated from 20 to 30 above zero, it was much colder nt Higher altitudes. At Corona, the highest point on the new Moffat railroad, two degrees below zero was reported Monday morning. Judge Holt in the United States cir cuit court Fridav imposed a fine of 1(18,0(10 on the New York Central & Hudson Kiver Railroad company for granting rebates to Lowell M. Palmer, who has chnrire of the transportation for the American Sugar Refining com pany. There were six counts and a fine of 18,000 was imposed in each case. Frederick L. Pomeroy, assistant trallic manager of the New York Central, was fined $1000 on each count, a total ot $0000. Judge Holt criticised the prac tice of the railroad company. In a place in New Jersey the town officers had just put some fire extin guishers in their big buildings. One dav one of the buildings caught fire, anil the extinguishers failed to do their work. A few days later at the town meeting some citizens tried to learn the reason. After they had freely dis cussed the subject one of them said: "Mr. Chairman, I make a motion that the fire extinguishers be examined 10 dnys before every fire." Philadelphia Public Ledger. Tie Meddler " tbt coat fitt you, ' " Scrutiny of tho automobile notices that the 'bailiffs have 'erected " "' edges of the village limits causes lhe Meddler to wonder what sort of an im pression tho signs would make on an auto-tourist who took the trouble to read them. "Warning viliige limits is the lino which appears at the hem of one of the sign boards in ungraceful (The Meddler almost said disgraceful) letters, while on another it is "Warn ing villiago limits." On still another board some-wag. with tho aid of iaek knife, has made the caption read '"War in villiago limits," referring 110 doubt to the water question. I assiiig autoists would have a better opinion of the village, as well as of the sincerity of its authorities, if these signs were correctly spelled and more artistically constructed. Without intending to commend the selectmen rfor the change they intend to make in the janitorship of the town building, The Meddler doubts tho wis dom of a petition in behalf of the pres ent incumbent. Whatever may be the motive of the town authorities in re moving Mr. Thayer and substituting Mr. Harris, the matter seems hardly ot enough imortance to need the direct interference of the voters of the town at this time. If. politics has entered into the action and the selectmen have allowed their judgment to be influenced bv anything outside the needs of the position, then it is high time we had a new board, for when things come to such a pass that iur town fathers can not be trusted in a matter like this, it would seem as if they had outlived their usefulness. A reduction in the price of ens. Such news sounds almost too good to be true. Hrattleboro people have hoped against hope for such a thing so long that its announcement is all the more startling. That the Twin State Gas S: Electric Company intends to maintain cordial relations' with its patrons is plainly evident. Not only has it insti tuted 'cheaper gas, but it has made ar rangements whereby patrons of the street railroad will have a commodious waiting room in the new American building. Here's wishing the new com pany such prosperity that it will soon be able to announce its decision to build a trolley line from Hrattleboro M Northfield, Mass. What sinister meaning has been given the innocent figures 2 and 3 when coup led in this order! Woe betide the man whose house number happens to bo 23: he is the mark for all sorts of jests. If a bill in the legislature is numbered 22 and 1 an earlv death is predicted forth with. The other day a local man was making arrangements for the installa tion of a new telephone, and the agent informed him his number would be 23. "Well. I guess not." was the imme diate replv; "do you think I want peo ple calling 14"'skiddoo when they want me!" On the evening that Judge Martin received news of his appointment to the federal bench his dog celebrated the occasion. He didn't kill a fatted calf but instead crushed the" life out of a luscious skunk, the result being the usual contamination of the atmos phere. Karly the next morning a friend of Judge Martin telephoned his congratulations on the appointment, adding. "I understand the news has al ready kicked up a big stink on the Com mon. ' ' "Where did you get that orches tra!" asked the manager of the I'ress Agent company of Manager Fox after the performance Monday evening. 'That's the one 1 always have," was the reply.

Don't Mistake the Cause of Your Troub lesA Brattletoro Citizen Shows How to Cure Them. Many people never suspect their kid neys. If suffering from a lame, weak or aching back they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptoms of kidney disorders. That is iust where the danger lies. You must cure these troubles or they lead to diabetes or Bright 's disease. The best remedy to use is Doan's Kidney Pills. It cures all ills which are caused by weak or diseased kidneys. Hrattleboro eople testify to permanent cures. Mrs. M. V. Bingham, wife of M. W. Bingham, carpenter, of 3 Prospect street. Brattleboro, Vt., says: "Resi dents of this city will remember the testimonial in which Mr. Bingham rec ommended Poan 's Kidney Pills some seven years ago. Previous to that time he had been more or less bothered by kidnev complaint and its attendant symptoms. He procured Donn-'s Kid-; nev Pills, and their use absolutely proved that tho claims made for this j preparation were not exaggerated, j Since then there have been times when j he has had slight returns of the trouble, I but he has always used Doan's Kidney) Pills and thev have on each occasion ! stopped the attack before it became at all bad. We are glad to recommend Doan's Kidney Pills whenever an op portunity presents itself." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.
