The criticism of Fuller C. Smith, now an ex-railroad commissioner, for appear ing before his own tribunal as a private attorney, seems to be general, except in the gentleman's home town. It ought to be a rule of the state, if it is not already, that officials occupy ing a judicial or semi-judicial office, should refrain from appearing in their private capacity as advocates m any cause. The state ought to pay such officials enough to command their whole time. If there is not enough work to make that possible, BOtne consolidation ought to be affected. With some show of reason, a corres pondent of the Boston Herald also criticized Attorney-General Clarke C. Fitts for appearing before the commit tee on municipal corporations of tho recent legislature and pleading the cause of the Crowell water works m Brattleboro. The excuse is made that Mr. Jntts was counsel for Mr. Crowell long before he became attorney-general, oui u w certainly a singular situation that de- tonight.

Tt was has not, however, been under the same critical scrutiny. The Journal ' opinion is, frankly, that Vermont cannot afford to employ commissioners or attorneys in an offi cial capacity who cannot earn as much for the slate as they ought to fu private practice, and the state ought to pay them enough so that there would be no excuse for the recurrence of tho incidents above noted. NEW FISH AND GAME LAWS Trout Season Opens May 15 and Closes August 15. Senate bill 14! which was passed during the last week of the legislative session shortens the open season for all kinds of small game in Vermont. This bill was made up by the joint committee on game and fisheries with a view to incorporating the good points of a flood of bills on fish and game mat ters which were introduced in the gen eral assembly. The open season for the various kinds of fish and game as provided by the new law, are here given: Trout, in streams, May 15 to August 15, in ponds. May 1 to Septem ber I; rabbits,. September 15 to May 1; grev squirrels, Septi'inber 15 to Dec. I; upland plover, August 1 to December 1: quail, woodcock and ruffed grouse, Sep tember 15 to December 1; wild duck. September 1 to January 1. The law increases the number of partridges (ruf fed grouse) which a person may kill in one season from 15 to 35, but not more than five may be shot in one day. Bullheads are "placed in the list of pro tected fish. The new act regulates the pay of game wardens as follows: coun ty wardens shall receive two dollars a day and expenses for actual service; deputy wardens shall receive $1.50 per day. 'All wardens have power to arrest all' violators of the fish and game laws "on view," prisoners to be kept at the expense of the state until a grand jury or state's attorney is notified and pros ecution commenced. Mrs. Fred C. Clark. Mrs. Bertha Houghton Clark, 415, wife of Fred C. Clark, the grocer, died at her home on Green street Monday morn ing at six o'clock after an illness of over seven weeks.

The officials of Ira, a village nine miles from Rutland, began Tuesday an investigation of the mysterious shoot ing of Mrs. Mary Parker Gilmore, wife of Charles Gilmore, while she was en tertaining friends last Monday night at a reception following her wedding. The young bride, hearing voices out side the house, and thinking that more guests wero arriving, went to the front door to welcome them. She saw a group of men a short distance from the door way and spoke to them but received no reply. Suddenly, as she stood there, two" shots wero fired at her in rapid succession from the darkness, one caus ing a compound fracture of her arm just below the right shoulder, while the other struck her sister-in-law, Mrs. Henry Gilmore in the left shoulder. The'latter's woundls not severe but that of the bride is more serious. No effort was made at the time, of the shooting to pursue the assailant, but Tuesdav the officers, acting on a state ment made by one of the men who wero outside the house, arrested An drew Farrell, a young farmer. The weapon used is said to have been a rifle of large caliber, carrying heavy home made bullets. Mrs. Gilmore is 19 years old and her husband is 20. Farrel was taken to the house of correction in Rutland where ho is held pending a hearing on the charge of assault with attempt to kill. Farrell denies all knowledge of the shooting. Mrs. Gilmore is Baid to be out of dan ger, but it is thought that her arm will have to be amputated -above the elbow. No motive for the shooting has been found and it is the general belief that the gun was discharged during a so called serenade of the bridal couple.
