The most overworked word In the po
lltlcal vocabulary Is "progressive." It
is applied to every blooming candidate
jn me entire country.
The remarkable feature of the result
in Ohio, as In almost cverv state where
a presidential primary preference vote
was recorded, was the apathy of the
people. Only a small fraction of the
voters took Interest enough to record
Windham county Is progressive. That's
admitted generally throughout the state.
It might be well for the Republicans
who are gathered In Brattleboro tomor
row to open their meeting by asking
themselves whether they are the men
that make the county progressive.
Senator Dillingham's disagreeable Job
in ine Lorlmer matter Is at an end.
He did not hedge In the least In his re
sponsibility and reported the evidence as
he found It. The criticism which fol
lows a man's earnest effort In doing
what he believes to be light amounts to
naught. Waterbury Record.
Senator Dillingham proved himself a
man of courage In making his report on
the Lorlmer case. He knew that the
entire country condemned Lorlmer, but
he made his report on the evidence as
he found It, like a fair and impartial
It Is commonly assumed that the con
stitutional amendment providing for the
direct election by the people of United
States senators will be approved by the
legislatures of three-fourths of the
states, now that the amendment has
been passed by Congress, says the
Sprlngfleld Republican. There Is no rea
son for such an opposition among the
states, as developed In the case of the
Income tax amendment, which Is also
awaiting the approval of three-fourths
of the states In the Union. Local In
terests bound up with the taxing pow
er still obstruct the latter modification
of the federal constitution, although only
two or three more states are required
In the affirmative column. In the other
case, serious obstruction ennnot be dis
cerned in any quarter. Indeed, nearly
two thirds of the states have at one
time or another officially gone on recy
ord as favoring a federal constitutional
convention In order that a change in
the election of senators might be
brought about. The recent popular
movement In favor of direct nominations
.for all offices, moreover, reveals a pop
ular sentiment that will surely force this
amendment through the requisite num
ber of legislatures.
Tyrus Cobb, rated by many good
Judges as the greatest player the game
has ever produced, raised ructions In
the American baseball league last week.
The Detroit team with which he plays
was In New York when Cobb Jumped in
to the grandstand and pummeled a spec
tator who had Insulted him. The pres
ident of the league promptly suspended
the star player pending an Investiga
tion. The other Detroit players, out of
sympathy for Cobb, went on a strike
and refused to play on Saturday In Phil
adelphia. Manager Jennings of Detroit,
In order to save his club a $1000 fine
under the rules of the league, put a
nondescript aggregation Into the field
against the Philadelphia Athletics, sev
eral of the players being drafted from
among the spectators in the grandstand,
This team in Detroit uniforms was
beaten 24 to 2 In a farcical exhibition.
The game scheduled at Philadelphia,
Monday was cancelled on account of the
strike, but late Monday the Detroit
players called off the strike and agreed
to play the following day .In Washing
ton, on the ground that they did not
wish to see President Frank Navln of
the club suffer for any action on their
part. Each of the Detroit players was
fined $100 for participating In the strike.
Cobb still remains under suspension and
his case will be settled later, probably
by the payment of a large fine before he
Is reinstated. Cobb was guilty of row
dyism and his course was wholly with
out Justification, If he had complained
to the umpire the latter would have had
authority to eject the disturbing specta
tor or to have had him arrested. Cobb
took baseball law Into his own hands
and violated 'statute law as well In
committing an assault. It Is fortunate for
the good of the national game that Cobb
was severely disciplined and that the
president of the league did not re
treat from his position In ' the face
of tho serious trouble wblch the up
rising of the Detroit players threat
ened. Coal Strike Averted.

A legal document that reads like a
novel with a plot based on high finance
has been filed In the county clerk's of
fice In a suit brought by William P. Mc
Craw of North Adams, Mass., against
Frank Allen of Wilmington to recover
damages of $10,000 In a hotel deal. The
suit Is brought through the law office
of H. O. & F. E. Barber.

The plaintiff avers that, relying on and

ROOSEVELT WINS AGAIN.
Colonel Roosevelt swept Ohio In
the presidential preference primaries
Tuesday, winning 32 of the 42 district
delegates to the Republican national con
vention. Roosevelt's pluarallty In the
state Is about 25,000. The election of
delegates to the state convention is
close, and the Taft managers claim they
have a majority and will secure the six
delegates at large. On the Democratic
ticket Gov. Harmon won nearly all of
the delegates from Gov. Wilson of New
Jersey. Roosevelt claims that the re
sult In Ohio "settles" the contest In the
national convention, but the Taft man
agers In Washington claim that the
President will have a majority of 30
votes ot least. New Jersey next week
will be the next big battlefield between
Taft and Roosevelt.
The cost of living Is now above tho
high point of 1909, when It reached a
figure expressed by the Bradstreet Index
of commodity prices by 9.22. It Is now
9.27. The rise Is chiefly due to the in
creasing cost of foods, and fhese have
advanced partly because of three years
n succession of dry weather and short
crops. Grains, hay and forage ore very
dear, and have caused a rise In the
price of meat and dairy products. Many
articles which go to make up the com
modity price have not advanced, notably,
Iron, steel, coke, lumber, cement, cloth,
ols, fruits, chemicals'. High as is the
present price of commodities. It Is not
up to the price preceding the panic of
1S73, following the boom caused by the

"Progressives' to Meet Here Tomorrow
to Dlscuta Candidates for Office, State
There appears to be no doubt that
Judge E.- W. Gibson of Brattleboro will
become a candidate to succeed Repre
sentative Frank Plumley of Northfield
In Congress. A meeting of the "Pro
gressives" (If anybody knowns what that
means) In Windham county has been
called for tomorrow at 2.30 o'clock In
Grange banquet hall to talk over the
question of candidates for office, state
and congressional, and Judge Gibson has
written to persons in various towns ask
ing them to be present. The meeting
will be open to all who believe In pro
gressive measures, Irrespective of their
preferences for president.
When asked If he would be a candi
date for any office Judge Gibson said In
part: "Four years ago when I began the
agitation for the enactment of a prim
ary election law and a corrupt practices
act, I decided not to put myself forward
as a candidate for any position, and to
become a candidate for office only in the
event that by so doing those measures
for which I stand, and In which I be
lieve, will be advanced. I will leave the
matter of determining candidates entire
ly to those who will meet to consider
."The situation Justifies the prediction
that at an early date Vermont will be
redeemed from the control of those poli
ticians who for years dictated Hb polr
Icy and selected Its officials. For years
I have been urging In public addresses'
and through the press, the enactment
of a direct primary. For a considerable
portion of this time I have acted on my
own Initiative because there seemed to
be no one to come forward and stand
with me. Now, after four years of agi
tation, It Is extremely gratifying to find
that the cause Is not lacking of friends
that we will soon have a splendid Or
ganization with which to fight the ma
chine, and for the right of the people
of Vermont to rule themselves."
