Gov. Wilson's attitude toward Pres
ident Taft Is In striking contrast with
that of Col. Roosevelt. In his Minnesota
speech he said: "I want to pay my
tribute of respect to Mr. Taft. I think
nobody who fully understands the facts
will deny the patriotism, the integrity and
tho honesty of purpose of the man who
sits In the White House." The Demo
cratlc candidate feels that In honesty
and Justice he must admit the sterling
qualities of the present lricumbent of
the White House, though differing from
him In political policy.
The defection of Gov. Hadley of Mis
souri, who has come out publicly In
support of President Taft, Is a stag
gering blow to the third-term candidacy.
His position today Is a rebuke to all the
talk of a "steal" In the' Republican na
tional convention. Hadley was the
Roosevelt lloor leader in the convention
and was In a position to have an Inti
mate knowledge of facts concerning con
tested delegations. Gov. Hadley's ver
acity und Integrity have not been Im
pugned heretofore. To continue the talk
about "stealing" is to brand Hadley as
an accessory after the fact. Gov.
Deneen of Illinois is another erstwhile
Roosevelt leader who Is now supporting
the regular Republican ticket. Charles
8. Baxter, who headed the list of
Roosevelt delegates-at-large In Massa
chusetts, has made an outright declara
tion this week In support of President
The Greenfield Recorder clamors for
a change In the direct primary laws in
Massachusetts. It claims that In practice
the primaries fall to register. the opin
ions of a suillclent number of voters to
make them effective, that they Invite
ruther than eliminate the use of money
n winning nominations, and that they dis
sipate rather than Increase party respon
sibility, in closing an interesting discus
sion of the fullure of the law to accom
plish what was expected the Recorder
says; "Years ago the state 'Massachu
setts led the country In adoption of the
secret ballot In protection of the voter's
free and .unhampered action. Just now
we have set up a process which destroys
the secrecy of his action, puts ihlm In
open declaration of his party connec
tion and records him on a roil from
which he cannot escape except by a
burdensome process. .Return to the con
vention system Is not likely, but It will
come by demand of the people them
selves If the law stands as It now Is. It
s the friends of the primary that must
make the changes In tho method that
will save It from destruction. They Have
cause to study and think and act."
The recommendations of the committee
of nine, looking toward educational re
form in Vermont, published in The
Phcenlx last week, are worthy of care
ful consideration by every member of
the legislature. There is, nothing par
tisan about them, In fact the main ob
ject of these propositions Is to take the
educational system out of politics. A
bill will Boon be Introduced at Mont
peller reorganizing the state board of
education, giving It large powers and
duties. The state superintendent of ed
ucation Is to be the executive offlcer of
the board and appointed by the board.
If the bill becomes a law, the state su
perintendent elected by seven members
of the board of education, will not like
ly be so much Interested in politics as
he naturally would be If elected by a
legislature of 277 members. Other
changes tn existing law will be suggested
only, but It Is expected the committees
on education In both House and Senate
will pay some attention to what the ed
ucators of tho state have offered for
their consideration. If the state board
of education Is reorganized it will re
main for Governor Fletcher to name
the very best men nnd women in tho
state. They ought to be chosen for their

Prominent Democrat Has No Use
for Wilson or Roosevelt
Thinks Good Times and Plenty of Work
Better than Low Cost of Living With
Empty Pocket Dooks.
It wus with no small degree of satis
faction that Republicans In this village
learned yesterday that Austin W. Roel
a well-known Democrat' und nominee of
that party for senator from the south
ern district of Windham coifnty, was an
outspoken supporter of William II. Taft
for President. For a number of days
the Republicans have felt that the tide
was turning, quietly, but none the less
surely, toward President Tuft, but sup
port from Democratic circles hardly was
to be expected. Mr. Roel Is still a Dem
ocrat, but at this period In the coun

Mr. Roel, who Is superintendent of the
Brattleboro Retreat farm, is known by
farmers and others throughout the
country, and the statements here quoted,
coming from a man of his standing and
a man of his associations in Democratic
circles, must make it apparent to many
that the Democrats are not so thorough
ly intrenched in the present political
campaign as they have been credited
HORSE STOLEN FROM JAILER DAVIS
Sheriff Mann and Owner of Animal Re
covered Property In New York Auto,
Sheriff C. E. Mann returned Wednes
day evening from a six days' hunt for
a horse thief, during which he was ac
companied by Jailer Earl Davis of the
County House of Newfane. The chase
took them into New York state and al
though they returned without their man
they located the horse and wagon, which
was stolen from Mr. Davis a week ago
yesterday They covered about 200 miles
on the 'trip.
Oct. 3 a man described as of medium
height, thlck set, weighing about 200
pounds, 30 years of age and dark com
plexion went to the County House and
hired a horse from Mr. Davis, saying
that he wished to drive to Rawsonvllle,
which Is about 18 miles from Newfane,
and that he would ljave the rig about
two days. Mr. Davis let the horse and
later received word that the stranger
would not return until Sunday.
He did not return that day nor Mon
day, and on Tuesday Sheriff Mann and
Mr. Davis started In an automobile on
his trail. They went to Rawsonvllle,
across the state Into New York, always
following the route taken by the man
with the horse. They stopped at many
towns and went as far as Fort Edward,
then retraced their route and went to
Granville. In that town they found a
liveryman who had bought and sold the
Newfane man's property. The fellow'
who had taken it from Newfane had
sold everything for 75. The horse alone
was worth $225. The Granville liveryman
sold the horse, harness and carriage to
different persons. The carriage was in
Granville, the horse had been bought
by a Pawlet man and the harness went
Sheriff Mann and Mr. Davis, accom
panied by the liveryman, started to lo
cate the missing property. On Tuesday
eyenlng they were traveling on. a coun
try road when they came to the Junction
of another road. Mr. Davis turned into
the wrong road, but had gone only a few
feet when he stopped the automobile.
He started ' to back the machine and
suddenly the rear wheels slid down a 10
foot bank and the sheriff was thrown
out over tho back. He sustained sev
eral cuts and scratches about the face
and hands, his nose being badly scratch
ed. The missing horse nnd harness were
found, and the sheriff and Mr. Davis re
turned home. Tho stolen rig will re
turn over the road. Tho thief had dls
appeared, but denorlptlons have been
sent broadcast and olllcers are watch
ing for him.
