Fairbanks & Co Five New Directors Chosen C. H. Morse Jr. Made Vice President, Fred C. Beck Treasurer, A. E. Ashcroft Superintendent, J. H. A. Bousfield Engineer and C. B. Rathburn Factory Accountant P. F. Hazen Has Resigned. On April 1st, 1916, representatives of Fairbanks, Morse & Co., of Chicago made the exchange with the officers of the First National Bank of certifi cates of the stock of E. and T. Fair banks and Company for those of Fair banks, Morse & Co., according to the terms of the offer sent to the stock holders January 27th, 1916. This transaction is remarkable in several ways, but in no particular more than that all holders of the stock save 15 shares have either de posited or forwarded for deposit their stock. These 15' shares are owned by seven stockholders out of about 60 u in all. The practically unanimous consent can be considered unusual in that only six weeks brought about the result above stated. It is also re markable in that it apparently shows confidence that the business integrity and honor of Fairbanks, Morse & Co., can be trusted to work out successful ly, with justice to stockholder and em ployee alike, the problems that con front the management of any large enterprise. A meeting for the election of new directors was held on Saturday, April 1st. The following directors resigned and their resignations were accepted: Gov. Henry C. .Ide, Joseph Fair banks, A. H. McLeod, Charles A. B. Pratt and C. L. Harpham. The vacancies occasioned by these resignations were filled by the election of the following to serve as directors: C. H. Morse, Jr., W. E. Miller, H. J. Fuller, Thomas McMillan and W. S. Hovey. Who The New 31en Are. C. H. Morse, Jr., a son of C. H. Morse, the founder of the house of Fairbanks, Morse & Co., is now presi dent of that company, and was also elected last Saturday as vice-president of E. and T. Fairbanks and Co. Mr. Morse, like the father he resembles in many ways, is a man of few words, but making every one count, and is primarily a man of action, force and ability. He is greatly interested to see the St. Johnsbury factory prosper and the scale output largely increased. Mr. Miller is first vice-president of Fairbanks, Morse & Co. He has been long identified with the Chicago house as manager. By wise planning, en thusiastic working and sound business judgment, he ha, accomplished much for the business he has devotedly de veloped. Mr. Fuller, a son of a former prin cipal of our Academy, Homer T. Ful ler, needs no introduction to the peo ple of St. Johnsbury. He gained his first business training in the scale factory. His rapid rise to positions of great importance is a tribute to hl keen insight and graip of difficult (Continued on page three.) was Feature Program April 5 to April 12 WEDNESDAY.

The Transportation oi Coal in the Winter Has Become a Big Problem So much so that hundreds of people who have never done so before, will put their Coal in during the spring and summer months this year. Not much change in price this year probably. The contract. fo reconstructing the parochial residence of Notre Dame church has been' awarded and work men are now dismantling the old structure. In its place will be erected one of the most beautiful residences in St. Johnsbury and one which will be both an ornament and a credit to the village. Rev. E. C. Drouhin, the rector, is enthusiastic over the plans for the new house and Is entering in to the work with much spirit. The architects plans call for a main building of 37 by 43 fet dimen sions, and an ell 30 by 45. French Gothic designs will be followed throughout to harmonize with the church building. Among other fea tures a cloister on the east front and the Gothic arches of the front porch and windows will bring out the fact that it is an ecclesiastical structure. The exterior will be of red brick and white cement mortar with trimmings of artificial stone. A Conservatory The front porch will open into a conservatory on the right and this in turn leads around to the cloister which takes the place of the more common piazza or veranda. This con servatory will be 25x10 feet and the cloister 30x11) feet. (Continued on page four.) CROSSINGACCIDENT Peter McDnffs Horse Killed At St Johnsbury Center And He Some what Injured Yesterday. Peter McDuff who lives about three miles above St. JohnsburyCgjnter Jad his horse struck by a freight train and killed, his carriage badly damaged and himself somewhat injured a the crossing by the depot at Centervale early yesterday morning. The train was a south-bound freight and the noise of the brook beside the road down which Mr. McDuff was ap proaching the crossing prevented him from hearing the train and he did not see it until his horse was on the track. The engine struck the horse in the shoulder crushing it. The car riage was considerably smashed and Mr. McDuff thrown out. He struck on his back on a rail on the side track. He also complained of injury to his arm. After the wreckage was re moved from the highway he walked about a quarter of a mile to the house of Ernest McLeod where Dr. Wesley was called to attend his injuries. Later in the day he was taken to his home. This accident follows very closely the closing of the two dangerous crossings within half a mile of the place where the accident occurred. Concert In F. C.
