THE TRUSTEE BILL
Vote to Suspend Rulea and Pass
' the Measure Falls Only
ANOTHER SNUB FOR HAPGOOD
Only One Voice Raised in Favor
of His Resolution about
Lump Sum for Leg
islators. Monlpeller, Oct. 10. The Senate made a
move toward prompt action and the early
redemption of campaign promises this
afternoon when It ordered to a third
rending the trustee process bill Introduced
by Mr. Ilabbllt. This Is identical with the
bill passed by the House of 1!10 and
killed In the Sebatp.
When the bill was ordered In a
third reading, Mr. Harbor moved that
the rules be suspended unci the bill
placed upon its pussuKo. Mr. Wallls
objpcteit. thinking It too busty action.
A vote was tuken and It stood 20 yes
and nine no. A three-fourths vote Is
neeufMiry for the suspension of the
rules and this wns not enst, so the
motion wns lost nnd tbn bill will be
rend the third time to-morrow. Al
though almost every senator has gone
on record na In favor of such a bill,
there Is some opposition In the Senate
and a debate may occur when the mat
ter comes up.
Most of the afternoon was taken up
with the Joint assembly to hear the
report of the committee to canvass
votes for county oftlcers, probate of
ficers Rnd Justices of the peace.

Devotional exercises were conducted In
the Senate this morning by Mr. Hewitt,
Hie representative from Plainllcld. Mr.
Farman, the blind chaplain, Is 111 with
a severe cold and has not yet come to
Montpellcr. The House has a Rood sup
ply of clergymen so It Is not necessary
to no outside that body to find some
one to officiate until Mr. Karman re
covers and appears In Ills place.
The first move In regard to revising
Oie tnx laws was made this morning,
when Mr. Wallls Introduced a Joint res
olution providing for an Investigation In
M representative towns of the amount of
deductions claimed on account of debts
owing. His Idea is to accumulate data
which will furnish information t'o guide
the committees and members In any ac-
lon they may desire to take with ref-
eience to the matter of offsets.
Mr. Wallis followed this up In the aft
ernoon with a bill permitting a deduction
of not more than ll.&QO over the aggre
gate of United States bonds, other bonds,
stocks and loans, deposits in s&vtnn
bunks and in national banks on which
more than two per cent Interest Is paid.

precise measure that was fouajht over
two years ago. From the neceeaarlly
superficial estimate gained by listening;
to the talk of members In lobbies and
corridors. It woidd appear that many
of the members aro not yet ready for
tax legislation. The objects to be striven
for aro reasonably clear and Keneraily
agreed upon. But there seems to be
ground for considerable honest and rea
sonable differences of opinion aa tto the
best way of accomplishing the dertred

Austin F. Roel of Brattleboro De
clares Wilson Is Too Small
Calibre for President.
Brattluboio, Oct. 10. The republican
managers In this town are smiling to-day
when told that no less a prominent demo
crat than Austin F. Roel, recent
democratic nominee for State senator
from this county, Is supporting Tuft. For
ninny years Mr. Roel has been connected
with the big Brattleboro retreat farm
and for the past two years has been
superintendent. He is known throughout
this county as one of the most conserva
tive democrats and tho announcement
that he believes President Taft Is far
superior to Governor Wilson, the candi
date for president of his own party,
Is bound to have a material effect on tho
democratic vote In Windham county In
In view of the part taken by Mr. Roel
in the State councils of tho Democratic
party, his attitude at this time la
Indicative of a change of heart by the
old guard who have engineered the
destinies of Vermont democracy for over
25 years. Mr. Roel says: "While I am
a democrat, 1 make no secret of saying
that I believe William H. Taft Is the
'best man of the three candidates for
president. I hope the Republican party
managers, will put the best man they
have on tho stump for President Taft.
Ho is an honest man. I don't believe any
thing In this talk that the election of
Taft will make tho cost of living higher.
Wilson Is too small cnllbro for presi
dent. Ho may be scholarly, but ho la
not the best man for the Job. Taft may
not be a politician, but to my mind he
Is tho best man In the crowd and I hope
he will win. I did my share of cheering

change of venue In tho supreme court
In the separation suit brought by his

do only If the trial of the suit waa held

life. She says that he has been cruel to
her. This Anderssen denies.

IS FOUND GUILTY
Verdict of $80,000 and Costs for
Boycotting Returned in Fa
mous Loewe Suit.
SHERMAN LAW TREBLES IT
Vermont Judge in Charge to Jury
Points Out Plot Must Be
Proved in Other
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 11. A verdict for
JM,) and costs wns awarded for the
plaintiffs, D. E. Loewe ft Co. of Danbury,
against members of tho United Hatters'
Union of North America In tho United
States district court to-night. Under thn
Sherman antl-truet law, this will bt
trebled, making thn total amount 1240,000.
It took the Jury four hours to reach
the decision, most of the time being spent
In examining the expense account of th
plaintiffs. The verdict Is for th full
amount nskod for by the plaintiffs. Th
present trial began August 24.
This already famous case has been be
fore the court for nine years, during
which time It has gono to the United
States court of nppeals twice and nnci
to the United States Supreme Court. In
tho first Jury trial three years ago, thq
award for tho plaintiff was 22rt,o00.
Steps wero begun to-night by tha de
fense to appeal the case again.
Suit was first brought In 1P02
against 340 members of the United
Hatters of North America residing In
this State, and was based upon tha
allegation that a conspiracy existed
to injure the business of the plaintiff
who la a soft hat manufacturer, be
cause he declined to unionize his' fac
tory. Durlne; both trials evidence was
presented aiming to show that curtain
labor unions had Instituted a boycott
against the plaintiffs' business.
Soon after the suit was brought th
American Federation of Labor decid
ed to stand behind the defendants anrt
to reimburse them against any loss.
The Anti-Boycott society of Amerlct
was behind the plaintiffs, so the liti
gation developed Into a legal baltln
between these two bodies.
During the recent trial, I'Maldent
Samuel Gompers of the Federation of
Labor, John Mitchell, Frank Morrison
and other noted labor leaders were
called as witnesses by the defense.
They all testified that no boycott had
been declared against tho plaintiffs'
Tn his chargn of the jury this after
noon. Judge James L. Martin of Vei-
mont fcald that the action was based on
the anti-trust law or Sherman law, ex
tracts from which he read. He pointed
out tli.it it was tho allegation relating
to Interference with tho plaintiff's in
terstate trade and commerce rights that
gave the federal court jurisdiction. 119
"Many of these defendants have goii
upon the stand and testified that they
hail no knowledge that the officers an
agents of tho labor union fo which they
belonged had been, or were to becomi
membera of a conspiracy to Interfere
with the Interstate trade and commerce
of the plaintiffs. That these unions,
local, State and natlonul, whatever you
may call them, are voluntary associa
tions Is not denied; that the authority
for whatever the officers or agents may
do Is vested In the individual members
thereof, Is also undisputed.
"The minutes, resolutions,, roports,
proclamations and printed discussions
which the oflleers and agents of the as
sociation have publicly proclaimed and
circulated among the membership, are
all matters to be considered by you In
passing upon the question as to whether
or not the boycotting of the plaintiff's
trade in other States than Connecticut
was approved or warranted by tha Indi
vidual members of the association."
The Judge told the jury that If It i
found the plot was to boyoott th plain
tiffs' trade with parties In other Statea j
In order to unionize their factory and such ,
boycotting was In fact resorted to, then
the plaintiffs are entitled to recover all j
such damages as they suffered by the ex- 1
ecutlon of that plot.
