Referring to the senatorial situation, Mr. Fitts said that the voters were be ing told that thev should turn out one ol the I lilted States senators. "They tell us," -aid Mr. l ifts, "that Mr. IfiUiugham has not achieved a position in the Senate tuat was reach led by Mori ill and L.imunds, hut let nie loll you that Senator 1 i i i i ngham has achieved none in the It vetils that he has been in the senate than di .Mori ill in me same numlier ot vears. Senator Dillingham is the great expert on immigration and it is the Dilling ham law that is now on the statute books.

Congressional Record and this criti cism was made without the slightest t ounda ! soil to sustain it. Seuatoi Dillingham us n delegate to the -Na tional uepul dica n convention in T.iUS advocated a lednetion in the number of Southern delegates, but the Roo-e velt steam roller was active at that time and the Dillingham proposition ost out. On the income tax measure i niitiir Dillingham was f a v oritble, but he wanted the states to benefit by this tax and otl'eie.l an amendment that Would give this tax to the slates for oo.l roads and latter schools.'" Mr. Fitts said that Mr. Prouty in his speech at Burro Monday evening said that when he got to the Senate he would get after the interests Mr. Fitts represented as an attorney. Mr. Fitts named the interests he represents i ml they all proved to be Vermont manufacturing interests in the south ern part ot the state. "Whatever lit tle I have done has been to build up Yermont , ' ' exclaimed Mr. Fitts, and 1 Would ask, what has Charles A. Front v ever done to build up Yer mont.' He was bh-ssed with rich par ents, blessed Willi a blight mind, giv en a liberal education, but with all of these advautagts what has he ev . r one for his native state.'"' Mr. Fitts told his hearers of the po sition taken by Mr. Pioutv while a member of the intcistate commerce commission in the matter fixing freight rates li.r New Knglaud. In the hearing thar took place in Boston be fore the interstate commerce commis sion Mr. Fitts lepresented several Vi'iiinnit shippess. The railroads con ceded that the Vermont snipper was entitled in lower rates and lower rates were agie. d upon. The Boston Cham ber of Commerce objected. It got the ear ot .Mr. I loutv and as a result the commission turned down the agieed upon rights between the railroads and the Vermont shippers. Then Mr. Prou ty brought out his zone plan of freight rates and in applying this zone propo sition to Vi imont the Vermont shipper lost out and today is paying a higher rate than the shippers south of Con cord. The Boston Chamber of Com merce and Hearst's Boston American are favoring the election of Mr. Prou ty to the Fiiite.l States Senate, but Mr. Fitts did not believe that theie was a man in White River .Junction who could, knowing what he knows of Mr. Prouty, favor his election. "You have, said Mr. Fitts, "to pay sixteen and two-thirds per cent higher freight rates than is charged the shipper in southern New Hampshire and the man responsible for this condition is Mr. Prouty. Vermont needs builders, not wreckers. The policies of Charles A. Prouty don't get you anywhere. He is destruct i ve.

The exceptions to evidence were to the iidmis-ions of the testimony oi the wit ness, Dickson, that the defendant Wreu signed the name O. Mohmd to a certaiu document, and to . the ev idence of Mrs. De.mpier of a statement made by the de fendant's wife. The defendant" also ex cepted to the exclusion of evidence of an assault upon Hamilton by other parties and that one W. C. Adams when sum moned as a witness bv him commit suicide. The oliinion on the exceptions as to the witnesses Dickson and Mrs. Dompier are of little interest to the average reader, concerning largely rules of evidence. As to the other exceptions the court says: (.) Hamilton was h, charge of work men engaged in railroad construction. The defendant inquired of a witness upon -ros examination as to an assault up.ui Hamilton by home of the workmen. No evidence was offered as to the time of the nlleged assault. The court excluded the evidence as too remote, lemaiking that if evidence were offered that the alleged :is- -ault w;n committed near enough to the time of the alleged murder to have anv connection with it or was fo connected with it as to bear any relation to it the evidence would be admitted. The excep tion to this uiling presents no question of law. The question for remoteness is for the iriiil court. The ruling in effect was .me admitting the evidence, if shown to have any connection in time or effect with the issue tried. In the absence of any evidence of any date of the alleged assault, that sn.li assault had any bearing upon the issue tried does not conclusively pear. ( I) I "pon the same ground the court excluded evidence t hut a witness sum moned by the defendant attempted sui cide at the time he was diiected to appear in curt. The defendant, being charged with opportunity to commit the crime, might answer by showing opportunity in others. Such fact appearing' evidence tending to prove guilt in any one having opportunity was competent. The defend ant could prove hi-s innocence by showing guilt in another inconsistent with his own participation in the crime. Although the witness. Adams, attempted suicide when summoned to testify, the bill of exceptions does not present any evidence connecting him with the crime other than that he lived in a house near the place where the body wiis found. Without some evidence connecting the witness with the crime ir cannot be said as matter of law that the conclusion of the trial court that the evi dence was too remote to aid the jury was erroneous. The suicidal act is described in the defendant's brief as miexplainable. This would seem to be so upon the evi dence here, and if uiiexpiainalile, evidence of the act could have served only to eon fuse the jury and it was therefore prop erly excluded. The remaining exception taken at the trial lest upon the obit ct ions to the argu ment of the attorney general. Four stand upon the claim that the argument mis stated the evidence. The statement that Wren's employer had to pay a milk bill is supported by evidence that Wren was slow in (laying his bills and that in one instance his employer paid a milk bill for him: the statement that a witness navy Wren "disappearing in the darkness, the dusk. going towaid the Liseom cut" is supported by evidence as is also the argument from Wren's possession of the overcoat for a time after the killing. As to the last exception taken it appeared that in the argument testimony was as cribed to one witness which was in fact given by another. While a verdict may be set aside for the introduction in argu ment of facts not eon tauied in the evi dence, ;ind a persistent misstatement of ap- UNITED STATES PROTESTS.

Bacon, who was chariman of the Yel nmnt public serv ice commission at the time of the meeting in Boston when Mr. Prouty made his proposition for "zone" rates, and who holds the same of fice now, confirms the statement ot Mr. Fitts that the Prouty scheme meant high er rales tor ermont. "It is a fact,'' said Mr. Bacon, "that the Prouty scheme put rates up higher on the Passumpsic and St. Johnshuiy and Lake Champlain divisions of the Uoston & Maine than the rates proposed by the Boston & Maine scheme."
