STRONGEST CAMPAIGN DOCUMENT.
The strongest Republican campaign
document of the y.ear Is President Taft's
article in the Saturday Evening Post of
Oct. 20. It Is a masterly presentation
of the accomplishments of the Repub
lican party, particularly In the present
administration, with reasons for con
fidence and retention In poWer. President
Taft shows conclusively that he has
been tulthful to the trust reposed In
him. He says he approved the Payne
tariff bill because, above all, It provided
the machinery by which alone a just
and Intelligent revision of the tariff
could be effected a tariff board which,
without political bias and free fromS
political pressure, would ascertain those
facts essential to any Intelligent adjust
ment of the rates of duty; because It
clothed the executive with power, by
means of maximum and minimum rates.
to compel Just treatment from foreign
nations of American products and ex
ports; because It Imposed a tax on tho
profits of corporations that at once gavo
to the government an Insight Into the
operations of these Important Instru
mentalities of business, which It had In
no other way been able to obtain, and
because it provided the machinery
whereby incrensed revenues could be
collected with facility In th face of an
emergency; because It granted to the
Filipinos that measure of Justice to
which this nation stood pledged and
which was essential to their prosperity;
and, finally, because it effected a ma
terial reduction in the rates of duty
not so much of a reduction as he de
sired, but as much as he believed coulJ
be secured without the aid of that ma
chinery, the tariff board, which it
The Democratic and half-breed tariff
bills which have since been passed he
has disapproved because they constituted
a menace to the welfare of the Amer
ican workmen, having been conceived In
Insincerity, drafted In Ignorance, and
passed with reckless disregard for the
millions dependant for a livelihood on
the prosperity of the Industries they
would have undermined. The passage
of adequate nndlntelllgent tariff bills he
has not failed to urge, but the approval
of Inadequate, unintelligent and menac
ing tariff measures he has not failed to
dlsapiirovo; even though It would have
been easier to disapprove the Payne bill
and to approve the makeshift measures
of a luter date. Mr. Taft says: "Had I
been recreant to my trust and solicitous
only for my own political fortunes a
different course might have appealed to
me, but I pursued the course that was
right and for which I have no regrets."
Mr. Taft evidently regards the attack
on the Judiciary as the supreme Issue
of the campaign. On that point he says:
"It should not be forgotten that It Is
ns much the duty of a great party to
oppose policies and legislation that
would prove Inimical to the welfare of
the nation ns to urge remedies for ex
isting evils. The recall of Judges and
Judicial decisions is hostile to that form
of government which has made the
United States the greatest nation In tho
world, -which has fostered liberty, pro
moted equality of opportunity, and
achieved a prosperity beyond the most
sanguine dreams of our forefathers. The
recall as applied to Judges and their de
cisions would undermine the Independ
ence of the Judiciary, subject our Judges
to political Influences, and render It
futile for the poor and the weak to look
to the courts for Justice. It should be
our constant aim to achieve as complete
a separation of the Judiciary and poll
tics as we have of church and state,
and the Institution of the recall as ap
plied to the Judiciary Is retrogression,
My indictment against the Republican
administrations of the past Is that un
der them we have gone nowhere; we
have drifted. We have been without
pilots, we havo been without charts. No
man has laid down an Intelligible course
and In these latter years we have beerj

Torrents of Rain Caused Heavy Damage
on Highways Boston &. Maine Con
struction Work Not Affected.
Heavy damage and much Inconven
ience were caused by the downpour of
rain throughout this county Tuesday,
Wednesday and yesterday. Trafllc on the
West Rver railroad was held up all
day yesterday by bad washouts, and the
mall which should have reached Brat

about 10 o'clock today. In Peru, In Ben

There were four places between
Townshend and Jamaica Where tho
West River railroad was completely
washed away, some of the places be
ing 75 feet in length, and the shoulder
of the roadbed was torn out in a dozen
places, one for a distance of 250 feet.
Two work trains were sent out yester
day morning to repair the washouts.
One went from South Londonderry and
the other from Brattleboro and they
met near Jamaica this morning.
The rainfall In 48 hours registered 2.5
Inches on Ferris R. Vaughan's Instru
ments, which, although It Is not a rec
ord breaking fall, seldom has been
equalled In two days In recent years.
Sixty feet of the bank wall on the
Wet River road near West Dummerston
was washed away yesterday and the
road was closed to travel. The water
wus higher than It had been for several
years. The power house of the Twin
State Gas & Electric company was closed
because there was two feet of water on
the lloor and the men could not work.

The Vermont legislature would do well
to give Dr. Henry D. Holton, In his re
tirement from the position of executive
officer of the state board of health, some
handsome recognition or memorial. Dr.
Holton's work has been humanltnrlan In
the broadest sense. He was one of the
pioneers In taking' up the great subject
of public health, and he has. labored for
the Interests of the state with zeal and
efficiency through a long term of years.
The value of his work can never be
measured, but we would quickly have an
appreciation of It If we abandoned tho
safeguards now employed and returned
to the hap-hazard system or lack of sys
tem In vogue years ago.
The enormous volume of business
which tho country Is transacting Is In
dicated by tho bank clea'rings, which
broke all records for the season last
week and wcro the largest In any week
since December, 1909, The increase com
pared with the corresponding week a
year ago was 23 per cent. A labor
scarcity Is reported In parts of the
country and the shortage of freight
cars Is becoming of formidable size. The'
fortnightly bulletin of the. American
Railway association published Saturday
shows a net shortage of 17,793 cars In,
the United States and Canada on Sept.
26, which compares with the surplus of
60,000 cars a year ago. The net shortage,
which Is Increasing dally, Is the largest
since November, 1907. In other words,
the railroads are handling the heaviest
volume of traffic In nearly five years.
Optimism prevails in all parts of
the country. Retail trade Is brisk and
Jobbers and wholesalers report freer
buying for spring requirements.

lodge, No. 71, In Wardsboro Tuesday
afternoon. Fifteen members withdrew
from Newfane lodge In order to foim tho .
new one and the Inltatory degree was
conferred on 66 candidates by the Re
bekah lodge of Newfane. Mrs, Oiacc B.
Richmond, president of the Rebekah as
sembly, was In charge of the installa
tion. The olllcers were elected and then
were Installed by Mrs. Richmond, as
sisted by Mrs. Stella E. Bailey of East
Hardwlck, vice president of tho Rebek
ah assembly, Mrs. Louise L.'Boyce of

Hazen of (Windsor, past president of the
assembly. The noble grand Is Mrs. Ju
lius Wilbur. Those from here who at
tended the meeting were District Dep
uty Mrs. Delta iialgh, Mrs. Arthur G.
Arcand and Mrs, Arthur L. Maynard.
About 40 members of Wantastlquet
lodge went by special train Tuesday pf-,
ternoon to Wardsboro to attend the anr
nual meeting of district No. 10, I, O.
O. F., which was held that evening.
The meeting was largely attended and
the program was as follows: Lodge
opened In form, Wardsboro lodge; Intro
duction of grand officers; words of wel
come, John E, Oleason, p. G.; response
for district, F. E. Perry; response for
grand lodge, E. L. Ingalls, D. O. M.;

Three hours was the running tlmo of
the special train on which the members
of Wantasthjuet lodge came Wednesday
morning from Wardsboro station to Brat
tleboro. The special ttraln left Wards
boro af2.10 a. m., and at 5.10 pulled Into
the station here. Forty Odd Fellows
, have been telling their experiences on
the 21-mile trip to their friends and
Charles G. Staples, who had charge of
the transportation arrangements, has
written to the general passenger agent
protesting against paying the amount
charged. Tie train consisted of the en
gine, tender anil two passenger coaciies,
and the trouble was caused by the In
efficiency of the engine. The first halt
came at the "Salmon Hole" bridge. The
engine could not make the grade near
the bridge and the engineer backed about
a mile In order to get a good stnrt. The
third attempt was successful. The next
cessation of pulling power occurred north
of the Townshend station and after sev
eral efforts the rear car was uncoupled
and the engine managed to pull the lone
coach Into Townshend and then went
back for the rest of the train. Then a
start was made for Brattleboro, but it
was only after many quarts of sand had
been poured over the rails at divers poines
that the engine managed to get the pas
sengers here. The train was not fitted
with Pullman cars, and between sen
tences the Odd Fellows who enjoyed (?)
the experience gave way to yawns while
telling the story yesterday.
WINDHAM COUNTY COURT.
Disposition of Criminal Cases This Week
Adjournment Expected Next Week.
All but one of the criminal cases on
the docket for the present term of county
court at Newfane have been disposed of,
most of the respondents pleading guilty.
State's Attorney Frank E. Barber ap
peared for the state, and has reason to
feel satisfied with the outcome of the
cases. Since Wednesday the court has
been busy with court cases, Including
several divorce trials. A divorce was
granted Mrs. Helen C. Brasor of Brattle
boro from John F. Brasor on statutory
grounds. The only Jury case left for
trial is that of the state against Edward
Varney of Brattleboro, a 14-year-old boy
charged with shooting and wounding
Floyd Nicholas. That case Is set for
trial next Tuesday. It Is probable that
final adjournment will be reached the
last of next week.
The Jury returned a verdict of guilty

On Monday the case against William
Witherell of Grafton was tried. The

yearling bull owned by V. O. Wilbur,
taking the meat home. A search reveal
ed some of the meat In Carlson's house.
Both were arrested, but Carlson escaped
from jail and has not been located. The
defense was that Witherell left Carlson
before the pasture was reached and did
not do the shooting and did not carry
away any meat. A verdict of guilty was
returned. C. S. Chase and Harrle B.
Chase represented the respondent.
After this case all the respondents
pleaded guilty. Ernest Robinson of
Townshend pleaded guilty to assaulting a
a girl In Grafton. Cotton Mather of
Marlboro pleaded guilty to keeping liq
uor with the Intent to sell. William
Woods was brought from the state pris
