Marker Dedicated Friday.
The dedication Friday of the bronze
tablet marking the place near which
was preached the first Protestant ser
mon In Vermont was a very Interesting
occasion and drew together an audience
of about 200 people. It Is located near
the Rutland railroad crossing on the
Springfield road about four miles north
of here and was erected by the local
chapter of D. A. R., In whose charge
were the arrangements for the dedica
tion. The tablet Is of bronze, 24 by 1C
Inches, set on a large granite boulder
that rests upon a solid rock within a
few feet of the highway and nlso from

Legislative Work Interrupted by Pretl.
dent's Vlilt W, A. Graham, Secretay
of Civil and Military Affairs,
Montpeller, October 9.
The presidential visit has sadly interfered
with legislative work, and practically nothing
has been done In the two days when the gen
eral assembly has been In session this week
beyond the making of committee appointments.
The two houses held a brief session Tuesday
morning, and met again in the afternoon to
hear the reading of the committee lists.
Wednesday morning they met in joint assem
bly to hear the address of President Taft on
the common soldier, and held sessions of a
few minutes In the afternoon.
Senator Ilabbltt of Bellows Falls. nresidrtit
pro tern of the Senate, has the distinction of
Introducing the first bill of the session, It I.

President Taft's rcecntloii in Monlnfllr .
the finest he has had on his trip. Buildings
on the principal streets were decorated with
flags and hunting and Main and State streets
were brilliant with electrical displays. The
President was two hours late in arriving
Tuesday evening. He was escorted Into the
city by a detachment from the cavalry troop
of the Norwich university cadets and taken
ro ine ravihon, where he was the guest of
Governor Fletcher. The commodinim n.
city hall was packed to the doors by 7 o'clock,
and it was past 9 o'clock when the presidential

anxious to get sight of the President. He had
mciiuca io spea out a few minutes, but
seemed to be inspired by the siie and quality
of the audience and his address consumed
nearly, an hour. Following the address he
shook hands with the people an hour more.
mis morning lie addressed more than 1000
school children at the citv hall and the nrhnnl
authorities gave him permission to grant a
holiday to the children. IJe was then taken
to the state house, where he addressed a
crowu ol 1500 people from the portico and
then was presented to the joint assembly to
deliver his address on the common soldier,
this being a portion of the exercises of the
unveiling of the memorial tablet to the com
mon soldier. As soon as lie had finished his
speech the President left for St. Johnsbury.
Governor Fletcher resigned the chair when
the President left and Col. Porter II. Dale of
Island Pond was presented as chairman of the
remainder of the exercises.
Miss Mary Strohe of Iloston, formerly of
Island Pond, the designer of the tablet, was
first presented. Miss Strohe, who designed the
tablet without thought of compensation, wore
a handsome gold locket and chain presented
by Governor Mead and Colonel Dale. She
spoke of the pleasure she had had in the work
and explained the significance of the design.
Harry It. Amey of Island Pond, who with
Colonel Dale and Justus Dartt of Springfield
constituted the commission to procure the
tablet, then made the presentation on behalf hi
the state. The acceptance on the part of the
state was by the former governor, John A.
Mead. Hon. Felix W. McGettrick of Boston,
formerly of St. Albans, accepted the gift on
behalf of the common soldiers.
The revision committee has been cut down
this session to two representatives and one
senator. This tends to economy and effi
ciency, for all the work almost necessarily
devolves on one or two of the committee.
J. W. Titcomb, commissioner of game and
fisheries, has had a complete revision made of
the fish and game laws .of the state, which
will soon be ready for introduction. Piecemeal
legislation for a dozen years has left the
chapter relating to fish and game in a chaotic
condition. The revision is not so much for
the purpose of changing the provisions of the
existing laws as to codify and simplify it and
put it in such shape that it can he under
stood. The people from Essex county are
already calling for a special law for their
county. They border on Canada and New
Hampshire, where the law is different from
that of Vermont, and the county is so largely
a wilderness that it is almost impossible to
enforce a law in regard to deer shooting as
stringent as that required for the rest of the
Guy W. Bailey, secretary of state, is at work
on the draft of a primary election law. It is
a large undertaking, for such a law in Vermont
must be as free as possible from cumbersome
machinery and at the same time efficient and
easy of enforcement.
This is one of the platform pledges of the
Republican party. Governor Fletcher in his
message recommended the equalization of
taxation between the banks and individual
loaners and Senator Babbitt has introduced a
trustee process bill. These are plain and
evident purposes to carry out platform pledges.
A woman suffrage bill has been drafted and
will soon be introduced. It will appear as a
Progressive measure but it is expected to
receive more support than that of the limited
number of Progressives.
Governor Fletcher has appointed Warner A.
Graham of Bellows Falls secretary of civil and
military afTairs and W. R. McFeeters of Enos
burgh executive clerk. Col. W. W. Drown
of Springfield will be chief of staff and Capt.
Preston II. Hadley of Bellows Falls has been
detailed for staff duty.
Mr. Graham is a member of the law firm of
Ryder & Graham of Bellows Falls. His part
ner is the representative from Rockingham and
chairman of the judiciary committee of the
House. Mr. Graham is only 28 years old, but
has already won a high reputation as a lawyer.
He is a native of Greensboro, where his par
ents now live. He was admitted to the bar
in 1907, graduating from the Albany law
The Democrats, considering their number,

Montpelier, October 10.
The Senate today manifested a strong dis
position to carry out platform promises,
ordering to a third reading Senator Babbitt's
bill introduced Tuesday, providing for the
exemption of wages from trustee process to
the amount of $10. The third reading was
ordered without opposition and Senator
Barber moved that the rules be suspended
and the bill immediately placed upon its pas
sage. Mr. Wallis of Washington objected on
the ground that it was too hasty legislation.
Mr. Babbitt urged the passage of the bill as
something that was generally demanded and
promised. On a standing vote 29 senators,
favored immediate passage and 9 opposed it.
This was less than the three-fourths required
by the rule and the bill went over till to
morrow. There is no doubt of its passage, as
those who voted against immediate action are
in favor of the bill. The measure is identical
with the one passed by the House last
session and defeated in the Senate. Mr.
Adams of Marlboro, then in the Senate, was
sick that day and absent from his seat. Had
he been present he would have voted for the
bill, thus making a tie and requiring the
lieutenant governor to cast the deciding vote.
Bills to substitute electrocution for hang
ing, in almost identical language, were intro
duced by Senators McFeeters of Franklin
and Elliot of Windsor.
The bill to repeat the hedgehog bounty was
introduced in the House, as were two others
appropriating $10,000 for the state fair and
$30,000 for the agricultural school at Ran
dolph. Hapgood of Peru undertook again to lecture
the general assembly, his attempt taking the
form of a resolution. This required the com
mittee on state andc court expenses to report
within ten days what they considered a pro
per lump sum for the expenses ol the Legisla
ture and also what they considered proper
compensation for the employes of the House
and Senate whose compensation is not fixed
by statute. His vote was the only one In
favor of the resolution,
Senator Wallis of Washington offered this
morning a resolution which was adopted by
both houses, requiring the commissioner of
state taxes to prepare a statement from 30
representative towns of the amount of per
sonal property returned for taxation and the
amount of offsets claimed and allowed on
account of debts owing. He followed this in
the afternoon with a bill limiting the amount
of offsets to $1,500.
An attempt w.is made today In the House
to have adjournment taken on Friday until
7.30 Monday evening, but it was voted down.
