milME 1)4. NO. 34. H BELFAST, MAINE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 24. 1922. FIVE CENTS ___r w --—- . . *____ — Republican Rally in the Armory Excellent Ad !re»§e» by Gov Baxter, grrssman Nelson and Miss Edwards of the National Committee. rc was a large attendance of prac i all Republican men and women in tnl0ry last Thursday evening at the ig of the fall campaign with three . prominent candidates and Miss j Edwards of Indiana on the plat hout preliminary remarks, but with rect announcement that he wou'd rd from later on the same platform 1. C. Buzzell, the Republican nomi nate Senator from Waldo county, trd Miss Edwards as one oi the iformed Republican women in the ... and one of the most ardent sup , 0f the special rights of women. Idwsrds addressed her remarns, all live issues of the day, principally women present. She urged voting ght Republican ticket and with no am words commended the nominees roted on at the coming State elec She advised allegiance with one of ro leading parties and the laying if the notion many women have of for the best man in.tead of party lies. Her maiden speeeh was de in the Waldo county Court House ;wo years’ ago and since then she id campaigning in 22 States. She itli that the Republican women loled once for all with the I)emo ilogan: '‘lie kept us out of War.” pres.-nt cry that the Republican nil raise the cost of living will be d ts readily as they did the League i Nations. Miss Edwards thinks ’resident Harding’s work in the conference in Washington has won infidence of the great majority of merican women. The Republican havff'xconftdence in the women, the Democrats underestimate their gence on vital questions. Women ways right on all questions that •n education and the home, hence e right ou the leading issues, in g the tariff, peace and taxation. Sdwards thinks all loyal Americans have two States—his own and , ft was the kindliness and friend of our people with whom she first la ted that gave her encouragement ep on with her work. In her asso ins with Maine people she had found all that one of her greatest states -Hon. Thomas B. Reed—claimed to be in his famous eulogy. ngresMiiau ouuu ^ w“v c best and cleanest political speeches heard in Belfast, in recent years, ndable as a Republican, broad enough ok after the interests of his entire ict, a forceful and fluent speaker, he , what would be most appreciated Waldo county audience. He refe - d Gov. Baxter as a real governor of ie, a man who stood on his own feet, as given Maine one of its most eco Sand best administrations in its There can be no just criticism cts. He has already found that in gton it is considered an honor to rom Maine. He commended the om Maine already at work in Igton and said it would be to the terest of all 111 the State to return r Frederick Hale as his record i that of an illustrious son of an ius father. He referred to the m's work on the Veterans’ Bureau, it was a joy and pride to raise the billion dollars to date for their relief, lie country owes those boys a debt can never be paid in gold. He re d to President Harding’s position in itace conference and in the preseut es and knew that they would be ;ly settled. After brief references to : of the Democratic propaganda in ie at the present, time he dismissed it the apt quotation: “The dogs bark, the caravan moves on.’’ ben Gov. Baxter was introduced by Buzzed as a man as lirmly grounded reliable as the rock of Gibraltar, a tctly safe, sane and honorable man in lis duties as the State’s chief execu be was given an ovation rarely evei led in Belfast. Our people are al i reserved and quiet «n such occa i, but their enthusiasm meant ap lation of his administration, admira^ as a man and assurance of depend able support in his election this fall. He cordially endorsed the fitness of Mr. Buz zed to become the State Senator from Waldo county and based his commenda tion on an intimate knowledge of what he had already done in the Slate Legisla ture. Gov. Baxter referred to his pleas ant visits to Belfast at the dedication of the Memorial bridge last fad and to the Waldo County Boys’ Convention in May. A graceful and easy speaker he at once won the confidence of Ins audience and never throughout his address did he abuse an opponent or attempt to belittle the record of another. His is a construc tive policy, first, last and always. He has made his office a business proposition aud brought to bear on it an intimate t knowledge of the citizens in all sections of the Mate regardless of affiliations or conditions, tie intends to attend to his own affairs only after due thought and j consideration. Most cordial endorsement ; was given to the support of Maine women I in ad public works and he also spoke in I the highest terms of Mrs. Guy Gannett and the women associated with her in the Republican organization. The Legislature makes the appropriations and it remains for the Governor, his council and the heads of the departments to expend them. After caring for the institutions, the de pendents, etc., $316,001) have been saved to be used in case of emergency or carried to a new account. The work at present covers a term of thirty months instead of the usual twenty-four in order that the fiscal year may close in July in stead of January 1st that the incoming Legislature may know what has been done and what is most needed. He spoke of the welfare work, a compara tively new branch iu Maine. It is a wonderful work. The State cares for 1,450 children takeu from bad surround ings, assisted 1,700 children and 511 mothers to remain at their homes to gether. He briefly explained why the $5,000 federal appropriation in ma ternity and child work hid not been ac cepted. After consulting with his coun cil it was the opinion of all that it was not their privilege or duty to accept it, but was a question for the next Legisla ture to act o i. Personally he thinks that the State should have the privilege, of supporting its own and taking from 1 the federal government only when ob liged to The Slate has already provid ed $5,000 for 6 months’ work or twice what the federal government offers for I the same length of time. He referred with pride to the State’s improved stand ing in the schools as she held 37th place in the country six years ago aud which will be brought up to 20lh when the next report of the Russell Sage Founda tion is issued. Six years ago nine and a half millions of dollars were invested in the schools of Maine; today the invest ment amounts to twenty million. As commauder-in-cbief of the citizen soldiers of Maine he has attended the gatherings at Camp J(evens and ac knowledged that bis heart swelled with pride at the kind of men Maine has in her defence. Belfast’s own was highly referred to in this connection. President Harding’s administration meets our Governor’s most cordial ap proval. He styled our president as level headed, cool and fair-miuded. Gov. 1 Baxter urged his hearers to be as loyal iu the coal situation of this winter as they were during the war period, to use wood as long as possible and to conserve in all ways possible in,tlie use of coal that our institutions and manufactories may not be crippled. He admitted that Mr. Buz zell’s introduction was true for *'if once i 1 make up my mind and think I am right, | I am going to stick to it until 1 am con vinced that I am wrong.” His story of the receipt of the death of Gov. Park hurst and of the immediate official events that followed was most impressive. At the time he took the oath of office under the direction of our most honoiable Chief Justice Leslie C. Cornish, that great mind sympathized with him and very quietly said what Gov. Baxter will never forget, ‘‘It may help you to re member what l detcrtnyied to do when I took the oath of office in my present po sition, ’I will not take myself too seri ously, but I will ta(ge my office very se riously.’ ” Gov. Baxter and his stair visited the Waldo County Hospital and inspected it as one of the State’s institutions. It met their approbation. Belfast Fair J,&, - With Buzzell v> .ether, Governor Baxter and Staff Special Guests, Fine Races, Good Exhibits, Merry Midway and Orderly Crowds. The t tree days’ sessions of the New Belfast Fair have gone into its history as its most successful and beat, due in a great measure to the beautiful Buzzell weather, clear skies, with only a short shower. Wednesday’s attendance of over 3500 people on the grounds broke the rec ord. The officers report practically no disturbance and there were only two minor accidents, when W. S. Ingraham of Oakland and John C. McCormick of Belfast were thrown from their sulkies, but not seriously injured. They were taken to the Waldo County Hospital for treatment and observation. The track was in excellent condition. Belfast’s band, J. Lee Patterson, leader, was present and is always heard with pleis'ure. The dance pavilion afforded the best of recieation with good music by Barney’s orchestra for those who do not care for horse racing, and in the evening for people on the grounds While the midway was practically twice as large as usual, there was no disturbance from the crowd or complaint from the fakirs, Sheriff Frank A. Littlefield report ed seeing only one man really under the influence of liQUor, Lieut. Maxim s air plane was a feature that appealed to all in his dip*, loops, and ahort excursions over the city and bay. The poultry house was under the super vision of Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Colcord anJ was visited by crowds during the three day . The exhibits includes poultry of all kinds, pigeons, and pupa. The cattle show was much above the average and had Borne fine exhibits which were shown before the grand stand. The exhibition hall was filled. The fancy work department was in charge of Mrs J. G. Paul, assisted hy Miss Edith M. Southworth, Mrs Elijah Ritchie, Mrs. J. W. Jones, and was an excellent exhibit Uncle Sam’s Club of Knox, Mrs B. L Aborn, leader, had two prize exhibits of unusual merit and there were good indi vidual exhibits by the Perseverance Club of Montville, Mrs. Myra Carter, leader. The vegetable and fruit display showed the effects of th lateness of the damp season. Mrs. G. R. Driimwaier of Lincoinvme, Mrs. George Hopkins of Monroe and Mrs. Jennie Kendall of Belfast had some beau tiful exhibits of dahlias and other garden flowers. The Central Maine Power Company had a wonderful display of all kinds and de scriptions of labor saving and other de vices. B. L. Tuttle had a good exhibit of some of his regular line of goods, the Ball band rubbers and the Weyenberg’s shoes Of the outside exhibit* the cool ever green tent of Highland Spring Water, Charles R. Decrow, proprietor, was one of the best ever seen. Ueorge O. Dunbar of Belfast, well knowu as a steeple-jack with unlimited courage and skill, did a feat that places him in the front rank of “dare devils.” He took several trips with Lieut. Maxim over the fair grounds Thursday after noon, and much against the advice and wishes of that careful aviator i ’unbar hung from the bottom of the plane, ^|ien it was estimated by several to be over 500 feet high, first by one hand, then by one leg, and apparently had no fear. Ho looked like a toy he was so far over the ground. Dunbar says in the future he wants to be called "Our George, the Human Spider,” and remarked the fly has nothing on the spider. The grand stand was in gala array with flags, pennants, etc., to receive Governor Percival P. Baxter and his party on their arrival Thursday afternoon. They were delayed by taking the Camden instead of the Belfast road at Searsmont, making the trip from Augusta here about 70 miles. The Band met the party at the entrance and escorted them to the stand. The Governor’s party included his sec retary, Mr. Chadbourne, Adjutant General Hadley, Col. Greenlaw and Col. Gardiner of his stafl, Hon. Johu E. Nelson, Mrs. i Wm. I udor Gardiner, Miss Betsy Ed wards of Indiana, Miss Marian Brown,sec retary of the Republican State Commit tee. Attorney General Ransford W.
