SenningtonSKamier BKNNINUTON VERMONT :' ' TUUU8DAY AFTERNOON. AUO. 25 It la reported that new Ikiiuoormio illustrated paper la to be started In New York, and that Nuxt Is to have charge of the oarloalure doptiitment. The Repub licans might offset hie work by republishing some of his oarloaturea on the Deniooratio party. The Philadelphia Record having de clared that the tarill on eteol rail makes "dear beef by raising railroad rates, the Philadelphia Press asks how it happens that our rates are lower than they are In lands where steel rails are free, W await the response of the free trader, At last we learn from Harper's Week ly preoisoly what Mr.Cleveland has done for the Clause of reform, He has "done more than any other man In the country to arouse and Interest the publlo mind In the question," but then, Uiggins also has done a good deal to arouse and interest the publlo mind, ! Senator Morrill is a man whose advice the Republican party can safely adopt as often as he expresses an opinion on party policy. Ho believes that personal preferences in regard to a Presidential candidate should be subordinated to the general sense of what Is best for the entire party. B - . I The President is in luck again. Oeorge Brinakle, whom be paid f 150 to go as his substitute, and promised to do more If he returned with a good reoord, but has since utterly negleotod, died Friday in the Soldiers' home at Bath, N. Y., of consumption, aged 65. With Maria Halpln married and George BrinBkie doad, the most troublesome unfulfilled promise now in Grover Cleveland's way is his promise to the olvil service reformers. . ' Said a "charter membei" of the Pro hibition party recently; "The prohibitionists will never go to the Republican party again; if the Republicans choose to come to us, well and good, we will weloome them, with others." Will the Republicans go? Probably not. This is from a Democratic exchange, and accounts for the great love that party just now has for these recalcitrant malcontents. '. The Springfield Republican estimates that to carry out Political Prohibitionist Miner's programme of destroying, first the Republican party ,and then the Democratic party.and building a Prohibitory party on the ruins, will take probably a thousand years. "Meanwhile practical temperance reform must take its chances with its enemies, reinforced by the Prohibitory party." Speaking of the Jeff. Davis letter? in which it was suggested that the prohi bition movement in Texas was a disguised enemy of State sovereignty, the Washington, D. C, Evening Star says: "It is time that the South ceased to be so divided into hostile camps by race and war prejudices that no contention oyer great public questions can be permitted to break down the old barriers. And it is time that modern questions were decided there on their merits, and not through the influenoe of sophistical appeals to State sovereignty by the ex-President of the Confederate States." One curious and probably uncontemplated consequence of the Georgia "Glenn bill" is pointed out in the Independent: Under the statutes of Georgia, a person who has seven eighths or more of white blood is accounted white, But under the social usages of Georgia, a person who has the slightest taint of negro blood is treated as a negro. Under the Glenn bill, if it were to become law, pupils who are seven eighths white would have to be excluded from Atlan ta University and other similar institu tions, or subject their teachers to the penalty of the chain gang, But these pupils would not be received into Athens or any other institution designed for white students. The result would be to deprive them of any chance of an education anywhere, Sketch of the Vermont Soldier' Home, On the ICth, inst., one of the events interest to all the people was the formal presentation to the State of Vermont of this institution, In this connection an historic sketch is timely, and we copy an article written by the Hon. Warren Gibbs, one of the directors, and a gentleman who knows all the circumstances connected with the founding of this important charity; 'Vermont has much to be proud of, but of nothing more than the home for her soldiers, established within sight of the State's great monument. And the magnitude of the humane and patriotic institution is little comprehended by the citizens of the State by whom it has been created. It was fortunate indeed that the occasion of the muster of the State troops and the laying of the corner stone of the monument took place in such close proximity to the home. These events gave opportunity to the thousands of patriotic people visiting the town to also inspect the home, the very valuable property and its vast and beautiful surroundings. Few people it is to be presumed, went to Bennington for the purpose of visiting the home, but when there few went away without improving their opportunity, Exclamations of favorable surprise were upon every lip. ,i 'During the many years while the matter was under consideration; when the bill was paused by the legislature in 1884 incorporating the home, and still later, no one could have had the faintest idea that the highest anticipations could have been realized so soon. Considerable has been written and said concerning the establishment of the home at Bennington, and of the extent of the property and its many oonvenienoeB.but to be able to understand the whole nothing can take the place of personal observation. The property was formerly the palatini residence of Mr. Seth B. Hunt, a prosperous Bennington manufacturer, who had spared no pains or expense to improve, beautify and to adorn it. The tract covers 200 acres, and lays just outside of the village on the north. ThiB property was purchased a number of years since by Hon. T. W. Park for a home for aged and dependent woman, but before his plans were matured Mr. Park died. In casting about for a location for a soldiers' home, Hon. A.B. Valentine of Henninz- ton, one of the trustees and also one of tbeT. W. Park heirs, suggested this property. At the time fow of the trustees nrobublv exnocted thatmicli a. aranii scheme oould be consummated. But the proposition was made in good faith, and the heirs, including his son-in-law. Gen, J, G. McCullough, spared no effort to have their plans put into execution and last winter the property was conveyed to tho soldierH homo. For this most generous act, almost without Karallel in the history of the State, the eirs of the great Vermonter have earned the lasting gratitude of the people ana meir veteran warns. 'The trunteos took possession of the property during the winter, and the soldiers begnn to obtain admission in May. The building occupied fur the home was built for tho niagnilicont resilience of Mr. limit, nnd is elegantly finished throughout. It has all the advantages ana Improvements oi the best city residences, with the exception, per lisps, of lighting. Water is supplied from springs on the mountain, a mile or two away, and some three or four hundred feet abuve the bouse. The building is piped throughout for both water and gas, and the house was formerly lighted by a portable gas machine, A aix Inoh iron main oouduots the water to the house and to the farm buildings, and also supplies the fountain in fount of the home. This Is said to be the highest artificial fountain at the present time in the world; with a one-luoh nozzle it is capable of throwing a perpendicular stream 180 feet high, Only a flvo eight nozzle, however Is used, and the stream from this is without precedent in this part of the country. Arrangements are also made to attach hose to a hydrant fur flre purposes, and with this attachment tire protection will be complete. "The lawns and shades about the home are large ond attractive. Everything is designed upon a grand scale and with exquisite taste, Thesurrounding grounds aud fields are expansive and level; the soil Is fertile and capable or produoing In abundunoe, The carden attached to the home is a large one, and from this souroe the inmates are abundantly supplied with necessities and luxuries. The farm buildings are extensive and in good oondition, Uuperinaendent Uoitey has an eye to the landscape gardening, and has o dozen or so army oore badges adorning the mansion gardens. The house was ready or ooounanor substan tially, and but few immediate repairs were made necessary, it is furnished in a neat, modest and tasty manner, and is capable of accommodating, with some improvements about thirty Inmates. The home contains fifteen at present, but the superintendent has a long list of other npphoants knooking at the door for admission. The home will be filled gradually to its capacity as fast aa the same can be done judioioualy, regard being first bad to relieve lbs towns from persons chargeable upon them. The inmates speak in the moit enthusiastic praises of Captain and Mrs, Coffey, and it is evident that no mistake has been made in the selection of superintendent and matron. The present oondition and future prospects of the home are all that oould be desired, and all can join in ex pressing the opinion tnat tne institution Important Improvement! ol the . Fltchkurg Hallroad. Travelers over the Fitohburg railroad between Troy and North Adams cannot fail to observe that many Improvements are in progress. - Tne reconstruction oi tbe yard in iroy is going forward rapid ly. The second track has just been ex tended near the upper end of the yard. New steel rails have been put in for the greater part of the distance between Troy and Lansinirburr. They are heav ier than any before in use and riding on the trains is correspondingly easier, Many ties have been put down between Lansingburg and Melrose, and ditching, widening of the embankments and cuts, etc., are under full headway between Melrose and East Scbaghticoke, where a gravel train is at work, Similar improvements are going on between John- sonvllle and East Buskirk's, and between Hoosao and Petersburgh Junotion. All this work is preliminary to tbe proper ballasting of the roadbed, What has been done so far this summer does not make muoh of a showing, but has been of the utmost importance. At the points where the Troy and Bos ton track is to be connected with the Boston, Hoosac Tunnel and Western, east and west of North Pownal the necessary cradinsr has been finished. Lit tle remains to be done there beyond comoletine the widenine of tbe rock cut near the North Pownal manufacturing company's mill for the Becond track, This will take only a few weeks longer, after which the Troy and Boston track for a distance of a mile or more through North Pownal will be abandoned. Tbis will do away with two bridges, one of them an eld covered wooden one, ana the other of iron out up by the Troy and Boston company only this year. The latter will be taken down and made use of elsewhere. New floors have been put into the two iron bridges on the Boston, Hoosac Tunnel and Western line, be tween Vermont and Pownal. A second track has been laid from the bridge at Hoosac Junction to the station' and the company is getting ready to rebuild the two wooden bridges at hoosick fans. The covering has been taken from the old structure nearest the station and iron bridees will be erected at both plaoes. The bridges on the Troy division are being thoroughly overhauled and made ready for operation witn tne neavy freight engines which are to be employ ed on the through trains. No great progress has been made in tne construction oi tne yaru ui mi-liamstown for two or three weeks, ex cept that the pit for the turn-table has been completed. Sixteen sidetracks are to be put down there altogetber, and this important addition tothe company's facilities for handling east-bound freight will be available by October 1. After Williamstown is made the division headquarters a good many trainmen will no doubt make their homes there, and a new village is likely to grow up on the north side of the line, Nothing has yet been done toward the establishment of a permament yard at Johnsonville, or the rearrangement of the two lines for UBe as a double-track with the necessary connections with the Bennington branch at Hoosac Junction, rending the com pletion of the improvements now under way most of tbe freight tramc is carried over the Boston, Hoosac Tunnel and Western road. The Hoax of the Chicago News About North CalaU. On our outside pages today appears a "large story," taken from the Chicago News. It is oommented upon by the Herald in these words, introductory to its republication of the yarn : Tbe necessity of going away from home to get the news has received a new illustration, All tbe way from uni oago there comes a story whioh, al though it is said to have taken place within a few miles of Montpelier, has been kept remarkably quiet there. Unquestionably the Chicago News has an "exclusive," a "clean scoop." It should publish a New England edition and get its South Woodbury correspondent to edit it. The veracious account to which this refers purports to give the circumstances of a sensational attempt to burglarize the safe in the railroad station at North Calais in this State. There were 45,000 in money sent up from the Montpelier banks for the stone quarries in the vicinity of Calais, so runs the tale, and tbis large amount was left over night in a little country railroad station at North Calais, which the readers of the News are told is a small town on a branch of the Wells River road. The station is a mile from the village, which would of course add to the security of this large amount of money, Tbe only guard was the night station agent. "Herman 8. Benjamin ,a sturdy Green Mountain boy, who lives in Woodbury, three miles away." The night express passed this station on the little branch road, and on this occasion it stopped and a coffin box, presumably holding a corpse, was left at the station "to be called for," TO LEBANON SPIIINO. About 400 people went on the excursion to Lebanon Springs yesterday, two oar loads of the party coming from stations between here and Ludlow, Although it rained most of the day the excursionists managed to have a jolly time. The special train of ten cars left Rutland at 7.80 a m,, accompanied by the cornet band, whose music added much to the pleasure of the trip. Leb anonSprings was reached at abont noon, a stop of half an hour being made at Bennington to view the Bite of tho Battle Monument. Arrived at the Springs a few of the excursionists went to the famous Columbia Hall in the village, while the rest remained In the cars where they "had lunch. The springs were also visited by the excursionists, but it rained so hard that no one at tempted to visit the Shaker settlement two miles from the village. Columbia Hall is the big hotel on the hill which has been visited at various times by many people of distinction, and lias been open since 1831, There are now about 150 guests at the house. After the hungry excursionists had enjoyed a sumptuous dinner the band gave a brief concert on the hotel piazza, which was appreciated by the bonrders. Returning, the excursion left the SpringH at 4 p. m arriving in Kutlnnd at 8 o'clock. General 1'annenppr Agents Spnlforri, of the rtoininRtnn & Rutland mad.and A.W, l'errin of the New York, Rutland t Montreal road, accompanied tbe parly the entire distance, and did all In their power to have the excursionists enjoy themselves. Rutland Herald. CORRESPONDENCE, A Correction, ., ; i BoPTlinoRO, Mass., Aug. 82, 1887. To the Editor of tho limmer Dkab Sir i Your Bennington Bannku 1 received this morning. It gives a very full account, lucre ti one mistake, where Itsays the small town of Concord, It should be Boulhboro, is sixteen miles southwest of Oouoord. The oompany did not get to Uonoord till after the re treat of the British, but followed on to Lexington, Truly yours, - 1 ETKR r AY, Peculiar , In the combination, proportion, and preparation of Its ingredients.

Vermont State Grange to Gov, Ormabee, after reoiting that the business or farming in Vermont is suffering, and the population or rural destricts diminishing, says t Tbe mem bers of the grange believe tnat tnis state of things bos been largely caused oy un reasonable and discriminating ratea of freight over the railway! of the state. and that muoh higher rates have been charged to the people of Vermont than to those of other states and foreign ooun tries. They believe that these high and unreasonable rates have largely hindered the development of manufactures in tbe state. The main and almost only argu ment advanced by Houry Clay and Hor ace Greeley why farmers should favor a high protective tariff was mat tnereDy manufactures would be established and a home market for farm produots oreat-ed. We olaim that high and oppressive rates of freight have prevented manufacturers from coming Into this state and that when we seek the markets of New Hampshire, Massachusetts and other manufacturing states we find farm prod ucts from the far- western Btates set down in those markets at , lower rates than we are compelled to pay: hence we are heavily taxed by a high tariff with out the compensating benefits that are derived by. olaer suites.. .It is ciaimea that Canadian farm products are pre vented by the tariff from1' competing with us on equal terms, but the schedule of rates of tbe Boston and Lowell and the Vermont Central railroads show that by the edict of corporate power the laws of the United States are virtually annul led by reducing the freight rates to and from Canada, bo that Canadian farmers oan pay the United States duties and still ship their products to our seaboard markets at a lower rate man our Vermont farmers, r !.- , , We have for years sought relief through the legislature of the state, as has been so successfully done in many other states of the union. A law creatine a state railway commission was passed at tbe late session of tbe leg islature, but- that measure has proved utterly inadequate to remedy the evils of which we complain. Under this state of things the passage of tbe interstate commerce law by con gress was bailed with great satisfaction as the beginning of such governmental control as should place Vermont more nearly upon an equality with other states but we nnd by tbe publication oi pieau-ings in the - case of the Boston and Al bany vs. Boston and Lowell, Central Vermont and other railroads, set down for hearing at Rutland on the first of September next, that the provisions of the interstate commerce law forbidding a larger rate for a short than a long haul are disregarded, and that Vermont people are still being charged higher rates of freight than those of Canada, Michi gan, Illinois and Wisconsin, in violation of the laws of the land. - The interstate commission has publicly invited the suffering people of this state to be present at the hearing above named and present their grievances. As an organization, the grange has no funds. Its individual members are men of small means. There is no time to solicit and collect funds from other sources and they therefore, in pursuance of tbe aims ano purposes of toeir organ ization, respectfully ask your excellency to exercise the discretion granted you in section 148 of the revised laws and as sign as counsel on behalf of the state to as sis tthe grange in tbis case tbe Hon, Kit-tredee Haskins of Brattleboro. or such other person or persons as . you shall deem best. Senator Edmunds will argue the case. The Governor has acoeded to the request of tbe Vermont farmers. ? , WHAT CAN BE DUNE IN VERMONT, Here is a fresh bit of evidence bearing directly on the question as to what a poor man may accomplish' on -the hill farms in Vermont, Western papers and western men never tire of telliDg stories of the possibilities of their country. Eastern papers and eastern men may fairly claim an occasional hearing, The best part of the following story is that it is true, We could 'name tbe man' were it wise to do so. Some 25 or 30 years ago there was a young man bere in Caledonia county who was a member of a family of pau pers; bis father, mother, sisters and a brother besides himself were living in a town poor-house, This young man was not robust, but, as was customary, 'hir ed out on the farms in tbe neighborhood as he was able and as opporunitv of fered and in course of time saved a small sum of money. Going away from the village he bargained for an old hill-farm on the back roads and removed from civilization.' The cost though seeming ly large to him was comparatively trifling. The first payment well-nigh exhausted his small store of savings, while a mortgage was given for the balance of the purchase money. So, it will be seen be began life very muchaB a backwoodsman hi the West might begin. He struck into the woods and made a clear ingas backwoodsmen do: worked early and late as backwoodsmen do; built for himself a' modest home, a mere hut as backwoodsmen do; lived in the plainest way possible as backwoodsmen do. By slow degrees the house was improved, and one by one he took his parents, sisters and brother from the poor-house, continuing his bard work and in dulging in none but the baro necessities of life. In a few years the farm was his Own, hot a very grand affair at best, but still a cdmfortable New England borne. Meanwhile it may be incidentally mentioned our hero had taken unto himself a wife and was rearing a family. Time passed on, as it has a habit of doing, and hard work and plain living resulted in still further accumulations. To make a long story short this man to-day not old, never physically robust and not above the average as regards mental ability, is a thrif ty.oitizen living in his own home and having a little spare money, which on occasion he loans to his less fortunate neighbors, no doubt at remunerative rates of interest; while the borrowers, very likoly, are men who purpose stopping in this worn out country only until they can see an opportunity to sell out and go West, As we have already said, the above is a bit of practical experience. What has been done may be done. In this county and in every oounty in this state there are just such oppornunitios await ing men who are not afraid of hard work. There are few who start under more adverse circumstances than the hero of this skerch. His experience furnishes an unanswerable argument in refutation of the oft-repeated statement that a poor farmer cannot in these later years get a living in Vermont. Let him adopt western methods including the deprivations and bard work incident to a frontier life and verily he will have his reward. St, Jobnshury Caledonian, ,.

The order of the Indian Bureau that Indian languages shall not be taught in Government schools has exoited considerable opposition in many quarters, no- tublv In tbe religious Dress, ine christ ian Union characterizes the order as a great mistake, and announcea : "We do not believe that the Christian people of this oountry will permit this. We do believe that the voice of the people will deolare that religious and missionary schools shall be interfered with.1' This is an illustration of the critioisms uoon the order which have been reoeiv ed at the Indian Bureau. It is not to be assumed that the Indian Bureau has ant ed in so important a matter without due consideration, and in order to ascertain what the argument of the bureau are for making this order inquiry was made of Acting Commissioner Upshaw, who said that the bureau wea controlled in Its action by the concurrent testimony of some of the best friends of tbe Indians. Commissioner Atkins had recommended it in his first report. The celebrated Peace Commission of 1868 considered the ignorance of the English language tbe greatest drawback to the civilization of the Indians, and the Indian office has adopted the policy of not permitting tbe instruction to be given in the Indian language. The statement of the Indian office continues : The Indian office is actuated in this matter by tbe sole purpose of civilizing the Indian as soon as possible. Nearly all the friends of Indian educa tion agree with the office that the most potent factor in solving the problem is to teach them to forget their barbarous dialects and adopt a language of civili zation. Their vernacular is of no use except on the reservation with members of their own tribe, and the time spent in learning to read it (in case a language has been written) is valuable time wasted, As a curiosity, the vernacular of any Indian tribe may be of great interest, but its perpetuation aa a civilizing agent is worse than useless; it is positively harmful and an impediment to the progress of the race. The question of the effect of the policy of the office upon any missionary body haa never been oonBiderod, The reasons for desiring the Indians taught in the English lan guage are so Belf-evident that it was supposed every friend of Indian education would gladly co-operate with the Government in the work. The preaching of the gospel to adult Indians in the vernacular is of course not prohibited. All that the Indian office insists upon is that in schools established for teaching the rising generation the language of the republic of which they are to become citizens shall be taught in order that they may be able to understand the laws which are to govern them, and to have intelligent intercourse with their fellow citizens, and that valuable time shall not be wasted In learning a lan guage which has no literature and no tradition, ; The National O.

TUB SIIAHP CASE Judge Potter being interviewed at Saratoga, reports himself as still deep in the work of examining tbe evidence in the case of Jacob Sharp and the rulings of Judge Barrett thereon. He is said to be devoting ten hours a day to tbis task, and to be totally unable to suggest a day when he can give a decision on tbe ap plication for a stay of proceedings. There never was a more useless under taking than that in which the learned Judge is engaged. He is of no higher degree than the very able ana impartial Judge who tried the case. If he should spend months in the study of the evidence be would have, to say the least, no better understanding of it than Judge Barrett, who heard it all. It is the weak point in the judioial Bystem of New York that tbe rulings ot a Judge may be virtually set aside and a case reopen ed by a Judge of equal rank who has had no knowledge of the case. All that a convicted criminal lias to do is to and some Judge out of the 80 or more on the bench who is weak or good naiureu enough to reopen his case. So far as Jacob Sharp is concerned, it is no secret that tho reason for tbe application is a desire to be released on bail. Once out of nmatrutv. hn would ouicklv place him self out of roach of the Sheriff. It would make little difference at what figure the bull might be placed, for a man whase dishonest operations had gained him millions would not hesitate to buy hiB freedom at a generous price, lhe delay already in executing the sentence upon Sharp has become almost a public scandal. Should the criminal's hopes be rer alized, and his escape become possible tbrougli a stay of proceedings granted by Judge Potter, the result would be a travesty upon justice. isoston journal STATE NEWS. - There Is more trouble over In the pleasant land of North Island, Com plaint is made mat wnuetne honest tax payers "are wearing out their teeth on bread, tbe flour of which cost 4.00 per barrel our town paupers are smacking their chops on that which costs the town Ifl.uu," Now that the hot wave has subsided fish liars begin to get their second wind.
