A joint resolution was adopted by both houses today providing for a joint ses sion on Thursday afternoon at 2.30 to elect justices of the supreme court, su perior judges and trustees of the Uni versity of Vermont. Another joint resolution provides for extending an invitation to Vice President-elect Calvin Coolidge to address a joint session this afternoon at H o'clock. It is improbable that Mr. Coolidge will accept the invitation, as he spoke to the Montpelier high school students this morning and is to address the Vermont Historical society, representatives and friends in Representative hall tonight. Scores of prominent Vermonters from all parts of the state have arrived in ilont lclier to listen to the distinguished son of Vermont. Half-hour se.ssions of the house and .cnate this morning were given over mainly to routine matters. Following adjournment meetings of the various committees occupied the remainder of the morning.

If there is a big demand for money interest rates naturally rise and in the open country-wide market money, especially of late, has commanded considerably in excess of per cent. . Yet Vermont banks cannot lend money in Vermont for a higher rate. What has been the lesult? Money de posited by Vermonters has very largely been loaned cut of the state while Ver mont farmers and business men, with ade quate security, have been fairly bowling for money only to get the story from the bank that the institution "had no money to lend. . The proposed 'measure, if enacted. would go far to aid in the development of ; Vermont farms and .Vermont industry.

Thaf State Surplus. (P.arre Times.) The B-attleboro Reformer is inclined o doubt the size of the state's surplus, which ex-Governor Clement spoke about in his retiring message. Perhaps the ttate treasurer or the state auditor could settle the doubt. As yet neither one has made any public statement refuting the assertion of the retiring governor. If the figures were wrong it would be ex lected. of course, that one or the other of those officials would inform the peo ple of the state so that the reel owners of the surplus might know just how their finances stand. Ireland spends less per head on drink than any other part of the L'nited kingdom.
