ADVERTISE IN THK REFORMER HANK and PETE NO HARDING TOUR BEFORE OCTOBER Senator Is Determir'l to i Stick to Front Port -a i( Despite Committee I SOME DISSENSION SHOWN OVER PLANS Senator Will Not , llow Campaign Committee to Lay Out Plan Feels Dissatisfied Because More Delega tions Are Not Plained. By DAVID LAWRENCE. Special Despatch to The Reformer Copy right 1920. MARTON, ()., Aug. 7 The issue here is ntill front porch or back platform. The party politicians .and managers want Sen ator Harding to tour the country from coast to coast. Senator Harding wants to stay here. And he has said "No'' very emphatically with respect to the period between now and Oct. 1, anyway. After that, there may be visits to various cities. But the usual early campaign dissen sions are in evidence. Xo presidential contest would be complete without them. Parties change their national managers so often that with each new chairman comes a new perspective. Murmurs are heard here about the apathy of the Re publican national committee on the eub' ject of pilgrimages to Marion. It is rep resented by some, for instance, that the national committee hasn't arranged for enough delegation's or handled properly some of those already scheduled. One delegation cancelled its arrangementa the other day, because it couldn't get ex clusion rates. It is quite customary for the national committee, be it ' Republican of Demo cratic, to be raked over the coals for sins of omission aa well as commission but this time the criticism serins to be ac companied by the riotion that the na tional managers aren't as enthusiastic about front porch campaigning as the candidate himself. Senator Harding has been importuned from, every side to go out on the stump. First, ill Hays is reported to have urged a change and then Harry M. Daugherty, Harding's personal manager, is represen ted as being anxious- to have the candi date ,take an active part in the cam paign . outside of Marion.' ' Entirely apart from the merits of ' tlv? controversy, the thing that impresses the average observer is that Senator Harding isn't allowing the campaign committee to run roughshod over him as is often trie case if a candidate lets ths said commit tee do it. It is this decisiveness on his part and his determination to follow the course that seems h'st to him as a veteran campaigner which is really important. In many a post mortem after the Hughes fiasco in 191G, the statement was made again ami again bv persons who knew Hughes intimately that he Mould have fared far better if he had managed liis own campaign. Senator Harding takes advice liberally and absorl many a suggestion, but the front porch idea is a conviction with him. He saw it work in 1896 with Mc- Kinley and he may rememler that Pres ident Wilson worked it fairly well from Shadow Lawn, Long Branch, in 1916. But it will take considerable courage to withstand the tactics of the political managers' who will soon be coming -to Marion with pessimistic stories' about' tlie activity of the rival candidate. Politicians are really timid people and possessed of a good deal of an imitative impulse. Be cause Cox announces a big speaking tour, many Republicans want Harding to do likewise. The viewpoint here, however, is that Senator Harding can conserve his energy and give the issues of the campaign more "f peace and nuiet than he could on a moving train with crowds at every cross ing and cheers at all hours of the- night, with hand-shaking and baby-kissing and r,p the other obligations of campaigning which a candidate fulfills lest he offend his prospective supporters. Senator Hardin has nut his foot down hard on the whole busmess. But campaign managers in conference in New York nnd Cliifftzo are talking of sneaking trips. Th Harding headouarters answered a good deal of the talk by issuing today a list e"?aeemenfs Tor front porch iiilresp for the remainder of August and a part of September. Certainly thee will be nc xtensie tour until Oct. 1. definite plan" for the period thereafter will not be made S Kr4 ounce su6Ni -r ( ' - XL? ..r r-- ( r rYF ) uiiiil early "in- i?epf eiiujer" when" a " surrey of the i effect -.( of the first Cox trip will have been made. i ABSTRACT OF ACCEPTANCE.

Governor Cox suggested' t vyo pec1fie "interpreta tions," as' outlined' several months ago in a newspaper; article. ;One declared America continuance in : the ' league should depend upon the league 'a -use only as an agency for world peace; .the other stated the understanding that this nation could act only within the crinsti ution, declared unalterable by any treaty.; ; - The door to other "interpretations" wart' lef ti. prien bv Governor Cox, but he sn id. that the. .Democratic platform plank ;" speaks in a firm resolution against anything that disturbs the vi tal principle"' of the lengue. The prohibition amendment and Vol -slead law were not specified in the ad dress, but Governor Cox promised em phatically strict law enforcement. "The constitution," he said, "is the license and limitation givon to and placed upon the lawmaking body. The legislative branch of government is subjecfed to the rule of the majority. The public official who fails to en force the law is an enemy both to the constitution and to the American prin ciple of majority rule. It would seem unnecessary for any candidate for the presidency to say that he does not in tend to violate his oath of office. Any one who is false to that oath is more unworthy than the law violator him self. "Morals cannot easily be produced by statute," Governor Cox continued in passing to a plea against abuse of the writ of injunction. Regarding woman suffrage, Governor Cox urged ratification of the proposed constitutional amendment, declaring women "are entitled to the privilege of voting as a matter of right, and because thev will be helpful in main taining . wholesome and patriotic policy." ..Jlif tpjHi.siion-caAiijdate, platform, leaders and congressional record were flayed by Governor Cox in scathing terms . throughout his long address. A "senatorial - .oligarchy". led by Sena tors Lodges Penrose and Smoot, Gov ernor Cox charged j seJI-cted Senator Harding to lead the . Republicans and fastened "into the party platform the creed of bitterness and hate and the vacillating policy that possesses it." The Republican stand, generally, was scored by the governor as reactionary fnd,' on the league question, he said the party's candidate was bent to the irreconciliable hostility of Senator John son of California. The Republican congress; the governor asserted, failed to pass a constructive law or to re'diice war taxes. Millions in campaign funds have been gathered for "the reactionary cause, " the governor charged, deplor ing election of a new administration "under corrupt auspices" and demand ing publicity for "the plain truth" iregarding all contributions and dis bursements. The Democrats, he added, would not attempt "to compete by dol lars." He warned the country against t' cunning devices backed by unlimited prodigal expenditures ... to con fuse and lure. ' ' Governor Cox said he took up the Democratic standard "a free man, un fettered by promises." "Our view is toward the sunrise of tomorrow. The opposition stands in the skyline of the setting sun, looking backward, at the old days of reaction." A graceful tribute to President Wil Fon was paid by Governor Cox, when, scoring the Republican platform for. absence of "a line that breathes emo tion of pride" in the nation's war achievements, he said that wihile sol diers fell in the trenches Mr. Wilson "was broken in the enormous labor of his office." Discussing domestic questions. Gov ernor Cox denounced profiteering) (at length and promised that profiteers should "suffer 1he penalty of the crim inal law."

O, Aug. 7.-The population of Springfield, Vt., is 5,283, an increase of 2,33,,or 62.6 per cent, ac cording to statistics given out by the census bureau. The population of Hart ford, Vt., is 4,739, an increase of 500, or 13.4 per cent. Lamoille county Vt., has a population of 11,853, a decrease of 727. or 5.8 per cent. ,f The; above figures for Springfield un doubtedly refer to the village of that name rather than to the town. In 1910 tlie population of Springfield village was 3.2."o, or 2,033 less than the figures given above. Tlie population of the town ot Springfield (which includes, the -village) wa 4.784 in 1910. The growth of the village is undoubtedly the largest i' the entire state, exceeding that of Wind sor, which preentage of increase this' yeftf w as 53 2, ns contrasted with Springfield's 62.6. Springfield's growth is due to the development of the machine shop indus try, as also it was in the case of Wind sor. The town of Hartford had a popualtion of 4,179 in 1919 and it makes a good show ing wjth its 13.4 per cent increase. Lamoille county was one of the coun ties of the state expected to show a loss. Its population in 1910 was 12,585. DECISION BY JUDGE CHASE. Barre City Must Pay Taxes on Water Work to Orange. BARRE, Aug. 7, Judge Hnrrie B.

Since the Winooski mills closed, the receipts of merchants in Burlington and Winooski have been greatly cur tailed and the effect is felt in nearly all of the stores. There appears to be plenty of employment, however, and few of those who were -out of work by" t he closing are remaining idle, un less it be of their own free will. Many have taken jobs on farms while others have secured employment ' in other in dustries in this vicinity, thus filling the employment lists in several of the mills-where help is needed. ' -. WHOLESALE PERMITS TO BE RESTRICTED Government Hopes to Check Retailing of Intoxicating Liquor In This Manner. WASHINGTON, Aug. 7.-Elimination by the government of the wholesale liq uor dealer as a means of simplifying pro hibition enforcement appeared a possi bility last night with the announcement by Prohibition Commissioner Kramer tliat the insurance of wholesale permits in the future would be "rigidly restric ted." Officials said that regardless of the bureau's decision with respect to elimina tion of the wholesalers, the number of licenses issued for the ensuing year would be smaller. In event the government permits the wholesalers to continue in business, it was said, a policy of investi gating the record of the applicant "and all of his affairs" would be employed. Treasury records reveal that more wholesale licenses are in existence now than immediately prior to the effective oate ot the olstead act. commissioner Kramer said that whilr? the wholesalers were being watched closely, drastic ac tion had been made necessary in cer tain localities.
