THE VERMONT PHOENIX, BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1912.
CROSDY ELECTED PRESIDENT.
BEATEN AT CLAREMONT.
Brattleboro Progressive Club Formed
Friday Night Dllllno0te Address by
Henry C. Long of Cambridge.
A Progressive club was formed, of
ficers were elected and an address by
Henry C, Long of Cambridge congres
sional candidate from the 8th Massa
chusetts district, was delivered In a
meeting In the Orange banquet hall Fri
day evening. About 60 persona were
present. Cards woro circulated and
Blgned enrolling tho signers In the Pro
gressive party. Tho secretary reported
that 49 Joined the party Friday even
ing. The address by Mr. Long was a
disappointment, even to radical Progres
sives, being principally a personal at
tack on President Toft.
The meeting opened with J. O. Staf
ford In the chair, and he explained the
reasons for forming a Progressive club
here. B. Q. Chace, manager of tho Fort
Dummer Mills cotton factory, said that
clubs were being formed all over the
country and that nine had been formed
In this county. Ho read a message
from C. II. Thompson of this town,
Koosevelt's New England manager, In
which he said ho formed a club In
Btowe the previous evening with an at
tendance of 110. Attorney E. W. Gib
son of Brattleboro, Roosevelt leader In
Vermont, offered a resolution which ex
i.nriori n henrtv welcome to the Presi
dent, resolved that the Progressives Join
in extendlne to him every courtesy with
in their power, that they wished him an
enjoyable visit to the ancestral home of
the family, a pleasant trip through the
state and a safe return, and that dur
ing the President's stay in Brattleboro
no public signs of any kind pertaining
to tho nresent political contest be shown
bv any Progressive. Tho resolution was
nrinnted bv a unanimous voto.
Representative E. C. Crosby said he
was still wearing hla Bull Moose button
In the legislature and that ho should
continue to do so, although the majority
In the House was Republican. Mr. Gib
son reported that a Progressive club had
been formed In Newfano wltn a mem
bership of from 60 to 75 and that the
party would cast 75 votes in mo No
vember election. In Wardsboro a club
with' 76 members had been formed. He
said that the party would poll 26,000 or
more votes In the November elections.
He urged the members to form a club
here and enroll members who could be
depended on two years hence.
After the motion to form a club had
been passed J. G. Stafford was nomi
nated for president, but declined to
serve and E. C. Crosby was elected.
There was applause as he took the
chair. Henry F. Jordan was chosen
temporary secretary. These offlcers
were elected: Pres., E. C. Crosby; first
vice pres., Dr. Thomas Rice; 2d vice
pres., Henry E. Shlpman; treas., E. V.
Blodgett; sec, Frank S. Pratt; financial
committee, W. II. Geddls, chairman, E.
G. Chace, treasurer, H. E. Shlpman;
campaign committee, F. S. Pratt, Dr.
Thomas Rice, J. G. Stafford and one
member from each school district to be
named by the president, all to serve
with the old campaign committee chosen
previous to the September elections.
E. W. Gibson was optimistic as to
the future of the party, and displayed
a Rooseveltlan characteristic by denying
his Interview with a Boston Globe cor
respondent, referred to In The Phoenix
last Friday, In which he was quoted as
saying that If there was no chance of
Roosevelt's election to the Presidency
the Progressives would vote for Wilson.
President E. C. Crosby Introduced
Henry C. Long of Cambridge, the speak
er of tho evening, as "Henry C. Lodge."
Mr. Long's speech lasted more than an
hour and was a Jeremiad against the
two old parties with an occasional word
In favor of his own. He called the
plural of moose "mooses," spoke of
"barefeeted" pensons and referred to
President Taft as "a dead corpse." He
said he had been president of a college.
In his attack on the President he said
Mr. Taft lacked character and Intellect.
He" also said that while Mr. Taft was
under the direction of Roosevelt he was
a good man, but when the masterful
boss went he became as helpless as a
child. Ho said President Taft had had
no business experience, had no con
cern for the common people, that he
lacked enthusiasm, that there was noth
ing about him to create enthusiasm and
that he was an "absolute and utter failure."
Mr. Long said that In Cambridge and
Maiden last week the President went
the entire routes of parade without a
cheer being raised, although press de
Bpatches from both cities said that
President Taft was greeted with great
enthusiasm in both cities. The speak
er bordered on the intemperate at'
times In his speech, the latter part of
which was Socialistic, in which he re
ferred to the labor conditions In Law

Mr. Sherman of Springfield and Miss
Kthel Mllllngton of Brattleboro were
a Claremont man, wa a big factor In
the result, making decisions that wcro
out of his Jurisdiction, and penalizing
Brattleboro severely. On one occasion
when Brattleboro had made first down
and was within striking distance, tho
referco sent tho boys back 15 yards,
compelling them to try a forward pass,
which proved a failure. But for this de
cision there would havo been a good
opportunity to tie tho score. Tho teams
were closely matched and the contest
was hard fought all tho way. Both sides
were stronger In offense than In de
fence. Brattleboro In the first period
received tho ball on the kick-off and by
end runs and lino plunges carried It up
tho field for a touchdown without once
losing It. Claremont also scored In this
period on very similar tactics. Clare
mont's second scoring came in tho lost
period of tho last half, the gains being
made almost wholly on forward passes
which the Brattleboro backs failed to
Intercept, as they were drawn too closo

If Your Voice Gets In, You Win
A Palmer (Mass.) subscriber told this story :
"I got word of a possible big contract in Western New York,
packed my grip, and started on the night train. All next day
I waited around that city, trying to see the head of the firm,
He was busy busy. I couldn't get at him. When night
came I went home disgusted.
"As my eyes rested on the telephone in my office next morn
ing, I said to myself : 'Wonder If you couldn't get me into
that office get my voice where I can't go myself?'
"It could and did. Within a half hour from the time I put
in the call, I was awarded the contract."
The announcement of a long distance call usually
will secure a hearing. Many busy men prefer to
transact business ty telephone. It enables them
tolconccntratc, to escape the emphasis of person
alties, and to make quick decisions.
