Journey to Irasburg Thursday Where
250 Members Gather from
Tenth District.
All roads led to Irasburg Thursday
evening when about 250 Master Ma
sons of the Tenth Masonic District
gathered for the annual district
meeting. The call for the meeting
was made by District Deputy Grand ,
Master O. W. Locke of Orleans.

a lodge room and at 2.30 in the after
noon, Central Lodge No. 62 of Iras

of Memphremagog 'Lodge, No. 65, of
Newport gave the first lecture of the
Third Degree. V. Frederick H.
Babbitt, grand lecturer, of Bellows
Falls, reviewed the work and com
mented favorably upon it, after
which he gave a short talk on the
landmarks of free masonry, which
was very interesting.
At 6.30 the ladies of Colton Chap
ter, No. 66, O. E. S., served a sump
tuous banquet to about 200 men, and
it is unnecessary to say that the ban
quet was good. It was served in
Irasburg style, which needs no . ex
p acation.
At 8 o'clock the lod$re was called to
order and the second section of the
degree was conferred by Central
Loige in a very creditable manner
and was so reviewed by Grand Lec
turer Babbitt.

ville, Grand Master of the Grand
Lodge of Vermont, was present and
gave a fine talk. Geo. I. Whitney,
G. S. W., and Christie B. Crowell, G.
J. W., also made short remarks. The
last Grand Officer to speak was
Grand Secretary H. If. Ross of Bur
lington, who was warmly received
and who told several of his funny
stories, following which he gave a
very interesting address on condi
tions in the fraternity today.
In a letter to the editor, District
Deputy Locke says: "It occurs to me
that in some mention of the Masonic
District meeting Tmrsday some men
tion ..should be made of the most ex
cellent work of Orleans lodge and
Central lodge, and of the hospitality
of Central Lodge and Colton chapter."
The Barton seven-piece Masonic or

the evening work and at the banquet.

Says United States is Hoodwinked on
Covenant of Nations.
A very good audience was present
in Seaver's hall Monday evening to
listen to Senator Martin S. Vilas of
Burlington talk upon the proposed
League of Nations. Judge W. W.
Miles presided and introduced Sena
tor Vilas, while upon the rostrum in
addition to Mr. Miles and Mr. Vilas
were Judge W. M. Wright and Sen
ator C. E. Hamblet.
Mr. Vilas explained the league as
he understands it, and proceded to
tear the covenant in pieces, article
by aritcle in a characteristic vehe
ment Vilas speech. He said Great
Britain had hoodwinked the United
States into this league in order that
she, Great Britain, with her five votes
to the one of the United States in
the league's governing body, might
secure the aid of this and the other
nations in the league to hold the ad
vantage she now has as a world pow
er. He characterized the league as vio
lating the essential American princi
ple of homer rule, liberty and inde
pendence, and questioned the word
ing of the articles. In some places
Mr. Vilas finds the league covenant
drawn too loosely, in others too
strongly and withall a document fill
ed with pitfalls for the United States.
The lack of applause by the audi
ence was noticeable during the en
tire address, though there was a mild
response at the close. No opportuni

Niblock, an Escaped Convict, the
Man. Stole Other Cars. 0
Clifton Niblock, escaped, convict
from the State Prison at Winsor has
been captured and is now lodged in
the Orleans County jail at Newport
waiting results of his flight.
Clifton Niblock, who was serving
time in the State Prison at Windsor
made his get-away from that institu
tion on Oct. 8, 1919.
Niblock and his pal, John Sharkey,
alias John Skiff, who was also serving
a sentence, were considered as trus
ties and were working with the road
gang when Niblock took it into his
head to disappear, and used an auto
truck to assist him in his get-away.
Since that time the officers of the
prison have been on his trail, which
resulted in his capture at Cowansville
Que., Oct. 21st, where he was found
working in a restaurant. Upon in
vestigation, the officers found that
this same Niblock was the man who
stole the seven-passenger Chalmers
automobile, belonging to Henry Haw
kins of Barton, which was stolen after
midnight of Tuesday, Oct. 14th.
Mr. Hawkins left the car at the
Crystal Lake garage for repairs, and
on account of lack of room the car was
left out of doors.
Niblock was brought to Newport
October 22d, by the Superintend
ent and an officer of the State Prison,
who made the capture, and lodged in
jail. Thursday, Niblockwas brought
into court and the charge of auto theft
was lodged against him. It is not
known at present if he will be taken
at once to Windsor to complete his
prison sentence with a good exten
sion added for his escape, or if he will
remain here and stand for tr.2 theft
of the automobile.
Niblock appeared at the local gar
age in North Troy about midnight
on Sunday, Oct. 12th, with a "Coun
try Club" type Overland car. It was
badly damaged and repairs were or
dered. Before repairs were finished
Niblock left town. Returning he
decided to sell the car and found in
Earl Jacobs, the garage man, a cus
tomer. With the money obtained
from the sale he purchased a suit of
clothes and personal outfit and again
left town. He came back Friday eve
ning on the 9.15 local and departed
the next morning for Cowansville.
Meanwhile the local immigration
and customs men had been appraised
of Niblock's escape and of the theft
of an Overland car from Dr. Beaudry
of Bromptonville, P. Q., the car final
ly been located in North Troy and
identified. High Constable Boisvert
of Sweetsburg, P. Q., was communi
cated with, who in turn notified Dr.
Beaudry of the discovery of his prop
perty. Monday afternoon, A. Char
