We confess to n liking for men with
positive and outspoken convictions like
Estey and Mead, who were willing to go
to the national convention as Tnft dele
gates or to stay at home. Page and
LowIm were Tnft men but they were will

The two wings of the Republican par
ty in -Vermont clashed In a sharp light,
and while excitement ran high for a
time no rankling wounds were left.
Senator Dixon, the national leader of
tho Roosevelt forces, had raised a cry
of fraud ns n refuge for retreat, but
wfien the fight was over he had nothing
on which to base such n claim. Mr.
Hatcheldcr of Bethel, one of the Roose
velt leaders In the state, gave out an
official' statement at Montpelier Wed
nesday night to the effect that every
thing had been "fair and square."
Vermont will send six Taft and two
Roosevelt delegates to the Republican
national convention. That the Roosevelt
forces, in a very brief campaign, were
able to carry the Second congressional
district and to nlmoi-t put the state con
vention In rout, is surprising. It was to
be expected that there would be opposi
tion for Taft on account of his attitude
on reciprocity, but this does not fully
explain the situation. Roosevelt was an
aJvocnte of reciprocity with Canada, and
It was not in farming districts alone that
Taft met with opposition. Roosevelt
carried some of the big towns like Barre,
St. Johnsbury and Rockingham, anJ In
Rutland and Brattleboro the Taft sup
porters had to put up a real figh't to
elect their delegates. It is evident that
1912 Is a time of unrest nnd uncertainty
and that many unexpected things are
likely to happen between now and next
November. After wltnesslhg the excite
ment and turmoil of the state convention
It is a rather disconcerting fact to recall
that the delegates there present did not
represent 20 per cent of the Republicans
of the state. It seems Impossible to
make the voters realize that the place
In which to record their preferences Is
In the primaries and not In the elections.
500 LABORERS COMING
Steam Shovel Will Start on Rail
road Bed Next Week
Construction of Second Track Will Be
Bepjun When First Is Completed Cros
by Qraln Elevator May Not Be Taken.
Preparatory work on the proposed Bos
ton & Maine railroad between Brattle
boro and Hinsdale has been pushed
rapidly this week by Chief Engineer
Robert Eldrldge for the contractors,
Holbrook, Cabot & Rollins, and unless
there Is unexpected delay In the arrival
of equipment It Is expected that the
actual work of grading for the roadbed,
will be begun by next Monday or Tues
day. Some 50 men are now on the scene
near Hinsdale preparing quarters for the
large force who will arrive later and
establishing headquarters, and Mr. El
drldge expects 50 more men today or to
morrow. Accommodations are now reauy
for about 200 men. Within a month a
full force of 500 men. largely Italians
who will come from New York and Bos
ton, will be on the job. An account of
further preparations Is given ln the
Hinsdale correspondence In this paper.
An Interesting fact in connection with
this contract Is that all equipment which
will be used will be new. Other Jobs
which tho contractors have under way
require all their old supply. All the
equipment has been ordered nnd some
has arrived. It will include nve sieam
shovels. 12 locqmotives and 75 12-yard
cars for hauling dirt. Mr. Eldrldge
says this Is one of the heaviest JobB of i
railroad construction In the East, re
quiring large cuts and fills.
The Impression In Borne quarters that
after one track was built the Boston &
Maine company would wait for a further
growth of business before building an
other track Is erroneous. The Phcenlx
has understood, and so stated, from the
beginning that a Rouble track road would
be built and this Is confirmed In h letter
from Vice President T. E. Byrnes of the
Boston & Maine company, who says,
among other things;
"When that Is complete (referring to
the first track) work will be begun Im
mediately on the second track. We ex
pect to have the first track In operation
by November first. Contractors, -will
build the approaches and abutments and
the bridges will be erected by a bridge
company. Tho details of the changes In
Brattleboro have not been finally worked
While the fact Is not given out offi
cially, It Is understood that tho grain
elevator and wnrehouse of E. Crosby &
Co. will not be taken, at least this year,
but that the railroad arch will bo widen
ed, which will necessitate taking the
east end of the electric light station.
That section of the building was bought
for the Boston & Maine road some time

State and First District Conventions for
the President, Second District for the
Montpelier, Vt., April 10 Supporters of
President Tnft controlled the Republican
state convention today, winning on the
two ballots taken by majorities of 67
Four delegates-at-largo to the Re
publican National convention were elect
ed, two unanimously nnd two after a
contest. All the delegatcs-at-large are
personally In favor of the rcnomlnntion
of President Taft. The convention did
not Instruct the delegates-nt-!arge, the
Taft men being content with n strong
Indorsement of the President and his ad
ministration. Such Indorsement, the Taft
men claimed tonight, Is equivalent to
Instructions. Apparently It is so under
stood by the delegates, for John L.
Lewis, one of them, who was elected
unanimously, gave out a statement to
night In which he said:
"The four delegates-nt-large are, as
I understand It, favorable to the re
nomination of President Taft. The reso
lutions of the convention commit them
to the candidacy of Mr. Tnft."
Though the Roosevelt people had been
proclaiming their fear of fraud and
trickery on the part of the Taft man
agers, Mr. Hatohelder, their leader, ad
mitted tonight hat the state convention
was fair and square.
The Vermont delcgatlon-at-largo to
.Chicago will be, as follows:
United States Senator Carroll S. Page
of Hyde Park. J. Gray Estey of Brat
tleboro, John L. Lewis of North Troy,
Gov. John A. Mead of Rutland.
Tho alternates-at-largo chosen today
were: Joseph G. Stearns of Burlington,
Lieut. Gov. L. P. Slack of St. Johnsbury,
Orlando L. Martin of Plalnficld nnd
Newman K. Chaffee of Rutland.
The state convention today was the
climax of one of the hottest political
fights In Vermont in years and the
strength of the rival factions was not
revealed until Col. Estey, a Taft man,
was elected delegate over Henry L.
Ballon of Chester, a Roosevelt supporter,
by a majority of (VI.
The majority was further reduced In
the 'election of Gov. Mead as the fourth
delegate by 58 votes over Dr. Jesse A.
Thompson of Rutland.
Of the 695 delegates entitled to seats
CSD were present.
The convention' was called to order In
the new city -hall at 2.25 p. m. by State
Chairman Frank C. Williams of New
port. Prayer was offered by Rev. Stan
ley M. Bloomfleld of Montpelier.
The temporary organization, consisting
of United States Senator W. P. Dilling
ham of Montpelier, chairman; Guy M.
Page. Burlington, assistant secretary,
and James Kendall of Strafford, secre
tary, named by the state committee, was
made a permanent organization.
Senator Dillingham opened with a
ringing political speech, dwelling at
length upon what the party had done
during the past quarter of a century.
Once he referred to Col. Roosevelt, say
ing: "It Is utterly Impossible for any
one Individual to make his opinions the
opinion of all the people all the time and
the country must be governed by parties
and not by individuals."
This remark brought forth the cheers
of the house, especially from one sec
tion of the crowded gallery, where a
big crowd of Tnft supporters were
gathered with cowbells, horns, m?ga
phones and whistles.
Charles H, Stearns of Johnson nomi
nated Senator Carroll S. Page Imme
diately following Mr. Dillingham's
speech. It had been previously stated
by Senator Page that he would abide
by the vote of the convention and the
Roosevelt men conceded -to a viva voce
vote for Mr. Page, his election being
It was not until Col. J. Gray Estey
was nominated by Walter E. Hubbard
of Brattleboro that the actual voting
strength of the Taft delegates was
shown and the real sense of the con
vention determined. The Roosevelt
forces ran Rev. Henry L. Ballou of Ches
ter for second delegate against Col.
Estey. Mr. Ballou's name was present
ed by Dr. J. H. Blodgett of Rockingham.
Seconding speeches for both candidates
were nade from nearly every county in
The result of the vote was 676 votes
cast; for Col. Estey 370; for Mr. Ballou,
306; majority for Estey, 64.
This broke the real tension of the 700
delegates who .for 24 hours- had not
known exactly where they would land
when the count came.
John L. Lewis upon similar conditions
to those existing in Senator Page's case
was elected by a viva voce vote.
The second display of strength to
show the Roosevelt men that they were
really beaten and that the convention
would eventually adopt Taft resolutions
came In the vote for fourth delegate.
The Taft forces named Gov. Mead and
the Roosevelt men presented Dr. Jesse
E. Thompson of Rutland. Tho vote was:
Mead, 35S; Thompson, 305; majority for
Mead, 53. Frank White of Rutland
nominated Gov. Mead and Rev. Fraser
Metzger of Randolph did tho honors for
The resolutions prepared by a com
mittee of one from each county strangly
endorsed the administration of President
Taft. These were read to the convention
by Chairman F. C. Partridge of Proctor.
On the yea and nay vote on the question
or adoption tne yeas plainly predominat
ed. Batchelder called for a ballot but
could not make himself heard. Chair
man Dillingham called for a yea. and
nay vote a second time and declared the
resolutions adopted. . Before the conven
tion closed Senator Townshend of Michi
gan gave a ringing address In which he
Indorsed President Taft.
Tedious Trip for Delegates.
The Windham county delegates to the
convention In Montpelier were delayed
on account of the freight wreck In
Hartland. The men who left here at
2.30 Monday afternoon walked a long dis
tance around the wreck and then board
ed another train. They were four hours
late In arrlvlng.ln Montpelier. reaching
that city after 10 o'clock. Tho delegates
who went on the night trnln Monday
were taken from Clarcmont Junction to
Concord. N. H., nnd thence to White
River Junction. They were over nine
hours late Into Montpelier, arriving there
at noon Tuesday. A special train ran
all the way from Montpelier to Brattle
boro Wednesday night, and the local
contingent reached home yesterday
morn ng at s.w. 'ino iirotiieboro dele

gates to the national Republican con
vention at Chicago and were Instructed
for Theodore Roosevelt by tho Sccoiul
District Republican convention held in
the city hall In Montpelier Tuesday
afternoon. W. H. Crockett of Montpelier
was temporary chairman and Henry L.
Ballou of Chester permanent chairman.
On the question of retaining the tem
porary organization, tho Roosevelt forces
had a majority of 4, which was In
creased to 28 on the election of Gibson
and 29 on the election of Thompson ns
delegates. The alternates are Dana.
Morse of Rnndolph and F. A. Chapln of
Middlesex. The defeated Tnft delegate!!
were Porter H. Dale of Island Pond and
O. L. Martin of Plainfield. W. H. Jaffrey
of East Burke was permanent secretary.
The qonventlon was uproarious on the
slightest provocation nnd tho chair broko
the gavel in attempting to maintain or

Ballou and "We're Here because Wo'ro
Here." Speakers for both sides were
greeted with cut calls, groans, hisses,
cries of "louder" nnd for the question.
Several men had to light hard to keep
from being howled down,
