THE ATTACK ON ROOSEVELT.
Americans everywhere heard of the at
tack upon ex-President Roosevelt with
shudders of horror and abhorrence. There
Is general rejoicing In the reassuring
news that Col. Roosevelt will recover.
The event reminds us again that our
great public men nre never safe from the
bullets of the" fanatic. Three American
presidents have died from the assassin's
hand within less than 50 years, and our
only living ex-presldent has escaped un
der circumstances which could not be re
peated without n fatal result. We may
surround our men In high places with
police and secret service men, but so
long as they appear at public functions
and mingle freely with the people they
are never safe. It would have been no
difficult undertaking for any crank to
have killed either Roosevelt or Taft when
they recently made trips by automobile
through New England, speaking In many
towns and cities. Col. Roosevelt cer
tainly demonstrated the strenuous life,
of which he Is the foremost exponent. In
declaring that he would make his speech
or die after he was shot Monday night.
It took courage and nerve for a man
with a bullet deeply Imbedded In his
chest to stand up to address an audience
an hour before receiving surgical treat
ment. We may disagree with Col. Roosevelt
with the' policies which he Is advocating
In this campaign and with his 'present
attitude toward President Taft and the
Republican party, but none of us will
deny that he Is a brave and resourceful
man. We do not believe that the Inten
sity of the campaign brought about the
near-tragedy. The papers on the person
of the assailant, showing that he believed
he had been visited In a dream by, the
spirit of President McKlnley nnd order
ed to avenge McKlnley's murder, Indicate
pretty consluslvely a disordered mind.
Whether tho uttack will have any ef
fect on the result of the campaign Is a
question which no one can answer now,
but It will undoubtedly have a tendency
to ameliorate bitterness In the discussions'
of the next two weeks. President Taft Is
not discussing politics from the stump,
and Gov. Wilson recognizes the propri
eties in announcing that he shall give
up his share in the speaking campaign
until such time as Col. Roosevelt is suf
ficiently recovered to resume.
President Tuft's order Tuesday trans
ferring 35,000 more fourth clnss post
masters to the classified service was
ubout the final blow In knocking out the
spoils system in .politics.
Boston Americana World's Championship.
With Wood pitted against Tesreau
Boston won Its second victory from
New York Friday In tho world's series.
The game was played at New York nnd
the score was 3-1. Boston made eight
hits, New York nine. Gardner, the Ver
mont 'boy, was a factor In the victory,
scorliig two runs and hitting the ball
for a single nnd triple.
Boston won a third victory on the
homo grounds Saturday, 2 to 1, The hero
of the contest was Boston's youngest
pitcher, Hugh Bedlent, formerly ot the
Fall River club of tho New England
lengue. He held New York to three hits.
New. York came back Monday, tak
ing the game 5 to 2. O'Brien, who start
ed on the slab for Boston, was pounded
all over the lot In the first Inning, when
all of New York's runs were scored.
Collins, who took his place In the sec
ond Inning, held New York scoreless the
remainder of the game.
Now York pounded Joe Wood for
seven hits nnd six runs In the first In
ning at Boston Tuesday, and then
touched Hall for five runs and nine
hits In the remainder of the game, win
ning easily 11 to 4. Boston found Tes
reau for nine hits. Including a homer In
the second Inning by Larry Gardner.
This was the first four-sacker of the
scries, but It was duplicated a little
Liter In the gamo by Capt. Doyle of
New York. ,
Boston won tho final game and cham
pionship Wednesday, 3 to 2, 11 Innings.
The veteran Mathewson wns pitted
against tho youthful Bedlent. New York
scored a am In the third Inning. Bos
ton tied the scoro In the seventh, when
Henrikson. a pinch hitter, with a two
bagger, brought Capt. Stahl home.
Wood went Into the box for Boston
In tho eighth and finished tho game.
New York secured another run In tho
10th. In tho Inst half of this Inning
Snodgrass muffed a lly from Englo's
bat, and the runner reached second. Af
ter Hooper went out on n lly to Snod

NEW RAILROAD WILL
BE DOUBLE TRACKED
$3000 Diamond Stuck in Rock
Deep Under River Bed
Gem Will Be Recovered Railroad Opera
tions to Extend Beyond Time Sped
fled In Contract.
The lmportnnt nnd interesting develop
ment In the Boston & Maine railroad
work In tho past few days has been tha
decision of the company to double track
the road for the entire distance between
South Vernon and Bmttleboxo. Rumors
that this might be done wero current a,
few weeks ngo, but no definite decision
was made and the Holbrook, Cabot &
Rollins corporation, wero not Instructed,
to make fills for two tracks. Their con
tract required that all the culverts', cuts,
piers ami abutments be made for two.
tracks, but the other work was to be for
one track, It being the Intention of the
railroad company to have the fills widen
ed nt a later date. It has now been de
cided to make the fills of two-track
width while the men and apparatus are
hero and when the work can bo' done
more cheaply than at any other time.
The original contract with the builders
called for the completion of their -work
by Nov. 1, but they have already Ooni
more work than the contract specified,
so It will be Impossible to finish Th&
Job by that date. The present plan Is
to build a single track and put It In
operation and then build the other track.
The fill north from the bridge abutment
on the Vermont side of the river has
reached a point near tno engine house
In the southern part of the railroad yard.
The work c-f laying the granite pier In
tho big open caisson for pier No. 2 will
be begun about the middle of next week.
It will Interest many to know that a.
$3000 diamond Is Imbedded in the rock
under tho river bed where the bridge
operations are In progress, but the fnct
Is not likely to cause a rush of miners
to the spot. It is safe over night, be
cause Is Is covered with 10 feet of rock,
12 feet of dirt and 28 feet of water, but
Its exact location Is known by the con
tractors and It will be "mined" In due
time. This diamond did not come there
through the forces of nature, but brpke
off from the end of a diamond drill.
Samples of the river bed are taken to.
Bhow the condition of the foundation for
the bridge, and for this purpose workmen
were operating a steam drill with a large
diamond point. After being sunk through
12 feet of dirt and 10 feet Into the rock
botton the drill twisted off. A pipe will
be sunk directly over the spot and In
side the pipe a hole will be drilled larger
than the one whero the diamond is, and
in that way the Jewel will be recovered.
A dance will be held In Odd Fellows'
The new Oak Grove school building
will be open for inspection from 2 to 5
