Montpeller, Nov. 14. Tho mnntifn"..
turlng side of tho question of limiting
the hours of women an.1 children In
factories was told this afternoon nt n
hearing before tho joint committee an
Immigration and labor. A delegation
of nurllngton manufacturers, Includ

of tho Chucc mills, nnd 11. A. Cooko of

P. Lord of the llurllngton Flouring
eompnny presented tho consequences
of such legislation to manufacturing
business In Vermont as they see thorn
The gist of tho arguments presented
by tho employers was that while they
were ready and willing to come down
to a fifc-hoiir n week basis for the
women nn.l boys In their employ, they
could not undergo such n radical cut
ting down of hours as a change to 4
hours a week would Imply. They ar
gued that Vermont manufactures al
ready labor under a tremen Ions handi
cap on account of high freight expen3
and therefore could not stand added
strain without re lining wages. They
said that the change was too great a
jump to be effected at one time, that
other States hail rami) down by de
grees, so that It took 20 years In Mas
sachusetts to bring about tills change
which Vermont was thinking of 'ic
compllshlng In a minute. The' as
serted that It would cut their Invent,
meiit by 10 per cent, and woillJ re
tard the Industrial development uf
Por the other side Judge Mower ques
tioned the speakers to bring out the fact
that human considerations tended to make
the change essential, that more favor
able labor conditions In Vermont would
tend to bring mote and better laborers
into the State and benellt the employers
In that wny, and that by the speeding
up uf machinery, made possible by less
l'atlKlled help, the loss to them could be
greatly reduced. This last the employers
denied, claiming that their machines
were already being run at the maximum
of spied. Among others speaking In favor
of the bill were the Itev. C. ('. Wilson of

Proposed Railroad Tax Bill Intro,
duced Looking toward Elim
ination of Income Method.
Montpeller, Nov. ID.-Tlure was a sug
gestion In the recent message of Gov
ernor Fletcher In regard to the taxa
tion of railroads relating to the difficulty
or expense of expert examination of tho
accounts of such corporation, and this
was followed by a recommendation that
the privilege of paying a tax based on
the gross receipts bo withdrawn and
taxes levied instead on the appraised
value of the road. This has been tho
subject of much comment and consi
deration by members, and nn attempt
has been made to regulate this matter
by the Introduction this morning through
the commltteo on ways nnd means of
a bill relating to rnllrond taxation, of
which the following Is nn abstract:
Railroads operated In this State
under lease or contract, the taxes as
sessed under Soc. 713 of the P. S. ns
amended by Sec. 1 of No. 21 of acts of
l'JOR, shall bo paid by the lessee and be
charged against and deducted from
any payment due or to become due.
For live years after date lines where
on cars for public traffic, commence
running on Bn electric rund built nfter
Feb. 1, 1007, n sum equal to 90 per
cent, of the tax tinned on appraisal
thereof for the purpose of ta.ation Is
hereby annually appropriated In aid
of tho company paying such tax.
Taxablo property under section 713
of tho P. H. shall not include tene
ments, lands or buildings rented for
commercial purposes, nnd not used in
the operation of n railroad; water
power, electric light nnd gas plants;
nor farming or timber lands owned or
leased. Such houses, lands and build
ings shall not lie set In the grand list.
lCxcept as otherwise provided, real
and personal estate used In operating
a rallrond or stenm lont and appraised
under Sees. 70li, 707 nnd 722 of tho
P. S., real and personal estate used In
carrying on express, telegraph or tel
ephone business In this State; money,
stocks, bonds, mortgages nnd other In
debtedness belonging to Insurance,
surety or guaranty companies nnd
shares of stock In telephone, telegraph,
insurance, surety, steamboat nnd trans
portation companies, taxed under
chapter .ir, of the P. S., shall not bo
sot In the grand list.
The entiro subject of taxation Is one
on which the legislature Is disposed
to net In a manner to 'mprove tho
general situation. There have been
two extended hearings on the subject
and one meeting of the Farmers' club
devoted to it, but the only proposal
that has yet made much progress Is
that of Senator Rabbltt, to exempt
from taxation money loaned on real
estate mortgages In this Stntc nt a
rate of Interest not exceeding flvo per
cent. There Is much sympathy with
the proposal of Senator Laird that all
loans In tho State at that rate should
be exempt, but It Is feared that this
even if theoretically correct, might bo
too long a step to take at this time.
Senator Ulnnrhard of Windsor Intro
duced this morning a direct primary
bill, which Is perhaps the most direct
and simple of any of the measures of
that sort that have yet appeared.
The bill goes Jlrect to Its purpose
without tho Intervention of any con
ventions or preferential voting. In
the main Its provisions are as followc:

The ballots are separate for each party
