Annual Inspectton of Oepartment
Hold Saturday
The annual paradc and inspection of
the Middlebury fire department was
held on Saturday afternoon of last
week. The heavy rains of the previous
day left the streets in a rather muddy
condition which also was somewhat of
a hindrance in making fast time in the
running races. The firemen and other
organizationsparticipatingin the parade
met at their rooms at 1 o'clock and at
1:30 the parade, headed by John D.
Woods, as chief marshal, and aids,
with the Middlebury band, A. D. Vit
tum, leader, moved over the following
route of march: Main street to new
High school building, countermarching
to Merchants' row, to South Pleasant
street, to Cross street, to Court street,
to Addison house, to Main street,
where the athletic cvvnts were pulled
off. The form of the parade was made
up as follows: Middlebury band, Fay
C. Warren, chief of the fire department
and assistants; Battell hose company,
M. A. Haher, foreman; Volunteer Hose
company, E. E. Turner, foreman; Usley
Hook" and Ladder company, George
Kidder, foreman; Fathcr Daley council,
Knights of Colurrtbus; William P. Rus
sel post, G. A. R., and board of village
trustees in automobiles. The depart
ment made a very handsome appear
ance and received frequent applause
along the route of march. A large
crowd turned out to witness the sports
which Were run off in the following
order: Hose race between the two
companies, Volunteers of '88 Hose com
pany making the run in 28 1-4 seconds
and the Battell Hose company in 36 3-4
seconds; 100 yard dash, Ira Pond, first,
Felix Cole, jr., second, Arthur Forest,
third, John McMahon, fourth, William
Gee, fifth, and Arthur Trudo, sixth.
There were four contestants in the
obstacle race and the results were as
follows: Ira Pond first, Arthur Forest
second, and Felix Cole, jr., third,
Willinm A. Morgan fourth. Hurdle
race, Ira Pond first, W. A. Morgan
second and Arthur Forest third, time
10 seconds. The tug of war between
the business men and the firemen was
won by the former.
Chief Warren acted as a starter and
ex-chiefs Allen Calhoun, J. H. Sargent
and C. F. Rich were the judges. After
the sports were completed the fire
laddies, headed by the Middlebury band,
went to the college campus where a foot
ball game was played between Proctor
High school and Middlebury High school
which resulted in a score of 8 to 0 in
favor of the Middlebury boys. The
firemen at 0 o'clock went to the rooms
of the Volunteer Hose company, where
a fine brnquet was served and a very
enjoyable evening was spent. The
whole affair from beginntng to end was
a complete succcss. The village trustees
during the afternoon inspected both
buildings and the apparatus.
Devotional exercises were conducted
by the chaplain.
Speaker Plumley announced the fol
lowing special committee on constitu
tional amendments: Addison, Mr.
Weeks of Middlebury; Bennington, Mr.
Flynn of Dorset; Caledonia, Mr. Shaw
of Peacham; Chittenden, Mr. Goodroe
ot Hinesburg; Essex, Mr. Lathe of

bury; Orleans, Mr. Wylie of Glover;
Rutland, Mr. Pelkev of Fair Haven;
Washington, Mr. Bolton of Cabot;
Windham, Mr. Ware of Wilmington;
Windsor, Mr. Guernsey of Rochester.
The special legislntive committee ap
pointed to investigate and report on the
question of seating or unseating Dr. W.
J. Aldrich of St. Johnsbury has decided
to report unanimously in favor of seat
ing him on the ground that he did not
hold at the time of his election an ofiice
of profit or trust within the meaning of
the words as used in the constitution.
Dr. Aldrich at the time of his election
on the progressive tjcket was a federal
pension examiner.
Mr. Hapgood of Peru introduced the
following resolution, which was adopted
by a rising vote:
Resolved, by the House of Represen
tatives of the State of Vermont, that
we hereby express our utter abhor
rence.at the attempt at assassination
of ex-President Roosevelt; and we
would hereby express our heartiest
wish for his speedy and complete re
covery. "Resolved, That the clerk of this
House is hereby instructed to forward
a duly certified copy of this resolution
to Mr. Roosevelt at his home in Oyster
Bay, Long Island."
Fish and Game Dlrectors Meet.
At the meeting of the board of di
rectors of the Addison County Fish and
Game league held at the Moosalamoo
club rooms last week, it was voted that
a general meeting and banquet be held
in the near future. It was also voted
that new members be admitted to the
league for 50 cents which will pay dues
up to February.
It is expected that the meeting and
banquet will be held on the evening of
November 5, election day, and that the
returns of the election will be delivered
by private wire to the banquet hall.
While the plans are not yet wholly per
fected, a complete account will be given
in a later issue.
Progressive Rally.
A progressive rally was held in the
town hall on Tuesday evening with an
attendance of about 250. The meeting
was opened by the president of the Pro
gressive club, Prof. Raymond Mc
Farland, who made a short address and
introduced the speaker of the evening,
Rev. B. B. Bosworth of Bristol. Mr.
Bosworth made an eloquent address in
which he outlined the policies of the
progressive party. The speaker was
repeatedly cheered during his address
and made a good impression. He was
followed with a short speech by a
student of Middlebury college. It is
proposed to hold a county rally in the
town hall on the evening of October 30,
at which the different Progressive clubs
in the county are expected to take part.
This will probably be the last rally to
be held in this village prior to election
and a large turnout is looked for from
the different towns in the county.
