Woodstock, July 12, 1902 Tho Fourtb of July left long list of nccidents and fatalitics, for manv i.of which thc capablo cnnnon crnckcr was rcsponsiblc.

Ilere in rennont "tfie cannon crnckcr business was nuicli ovenlone. Similar rcpoits 'comc from nll pnrts ofthe countiy, ''aud anothcr ycar thcrc will bc some attempt made to curl) thc op'crations ol'this too strcn- uousexplosive. Tbu Boston Transcript looks at it 'in tbis way: "It is somctbing new 'nnd ougbt to bc itwakcning for 'Vermont to bavc a thrcc-cornorcd political light on licr hands." Thc is onc ol tliosc city pa-pcrs that seem to takc plcasurc in notion that V.crniont is ordina-irUv, darkness and 50 vcars bchind times.

Thc probability that Clcmcnt will be a candidate for governor is a'dis-concerting outlook for thc forgans which had in their own 'coluiuns arrangcd political matters Ibr thc stimm'er and wcrc simply waiting l'or thc usnal ratification at the polls next Scptcmbcr. Things arc changcd in a day. Thc McCul-lo'iigbitcs and niost of thc supporters of thc machine couldn't by any twist of tho imagination assign any rea- 's'tirt why Clcmcnt shotdd rcappearin tlic fickl, and there has becn an unan- limous and anxious intcrrogation as tb "what is to bc gaincd by it?" 'Whntevcr the outcomc, Vermont bc a gaincr for a contcst that is likely to shakc thc statc to its boundarics and cven to havc a little excitcment to sharc witb New and Maine.

Thc domi-nating forccs of thc' Republican party in Vermont havc dclaycd niuch tpo lonjj in yiclding in the sligbtcst dcgrce to the popular de-tnnnd for some changc in the liquor law, and now when a revolt comcs the frec use ot money pcrhaps can- not avert a violent overturn, a par- tial bouse-cleaning. Again, Vermont would be better for more st i r- ring- times in poiittcs, witn cvcry one intcrcstcd, for a thrce-cornered light with no mortgage on the gov crnor's chair.
