Brittan Fire Accident Insurance Liability Life Wilder Bldg., Brattleboro Advocates of Present System Say No Action Should Be Taken With out Referendum (Special to The Reformer.) MONTPELIER, March 10. The principal speakers at the hearing On H-1, to repeal the direct primary law. yesterday afternoon in representatives' hall were Mr. Flint of Northfield and Mrs. Annette W. Parmelee of Eusburg. W. D. Stewart of Fairfax and Harry Danie ls of East Montpelier spoke briefly against it. " Professor Flint traced the history of the primary from the establishment of the Australian ballot ami said that a grave responsibility would rest on any legisla ture that tried to do away with a law adopted by referendum vote. As a student of government, he assured the committee that the repeal of the primary would be .... i .1,. just as mucn a tep uaeKwaru a iu uo awav with the Australian ballot. : Mrs. Parmelee disclaimed speaking for nnv orsanization, but said she had been urged to speak against the bill by scores of women who leit mat tne bill was un in st to them. "Timid women, said -Mrs. i-armeiee. will shrink from the corrupt methods of the old caucus system and they teel that under the orderly, secret method )t the nrimarv. It may be that democracy is on trial, that the people cannot be trusted but if this measure is enacted into law it will constitute a most astounding exhibi tim of had faith. 1 "The principle is reactionary. It will turn back the hands of progress. It will tend to restore the caucus regime of graft and corruption with which you men are fully acquainted, and which would alien ate the best type ot men and women trom takimr part in public matters. Mrs. Parmelee called tor a reteremlum if the bill were passed. rormer Lieut. .Gov. t rank l. Howe saiil the measure would in fact disfran chise the women, at least for a term of vears. ami for that matter it would also disfranchise a vny large body of the male electorate. As to expense he called atten tion to the McCulloush campaign of 1002, in which there was probably more money spent than ever before or since. ICepresentative ian l'.rien ot outn Burlington, failing to find out from Mr. Howe Imw much the .ucCullough cam paign actually -ost. volunteered the in torniation that it cost .v25(M"M) and that had positive and certain knowledge that S15.IMIO nf that amount was deposited in the Burlington Savings bank to take care of Chittenden county. Speaking further. Mr. O'Brien said he voted for Frank Agan of Ludlow, but that now that Governor Hartness was elected by all the people he was going to tand behind him. "The people voted for this primary," -aid the speaker, "and they ought not to deprived of it without a chance to vote. Mr. Stewart favored the caucus-conven tion svstem. lie said the primary does not work, costs too much, people do not ;et out to vole. "Out of HON registered voters," said the peaker. "I think seven voted." He also .pposed it on the ground of expense and urged tne old system as being more representative. Mr. Daniels humorously asked the com mittee whether they wanted him to favor or oppose' the bill. "I have no interest in it. he declared. "but I don't believe any person has anv eal argument in favor of the primarv. By the time a man has got two-thirds of the legal voters of the town on his pe tition he's as good jis elected and any good-looking man can get all the women to sign his papers. "1 doubt, however, if this legislature would feel-justified 'in changing the sys tem over what was adopted by a referen dum vote unies the people are given a chance to vote on it.''

Local unions represented on the joint hoard of cloak and skirt makers' unions and affiliated with the international ladies' garment workers and the American federation of labor, declared a strike of their 2,(MJO members ! the latter part of January after the 'manufacturers an nounced that they intended to sign con tracts with individual workers and not with unions. Since this strike was called union lead ers say tiie owners of 4'2 shops have signed agreements with the union and about ."() workers have returned to their machines. Strike Ixuiefits. are being paid to 1,500 fctrikers. Early in February some S00 members of the journeymen tailors' union walked Out on strike when the Custom Tailors' asso ciation of I tost on announced that the workers would be paid on a piece basis instead of under the weekly wage system. The waterproof garment workers' union and the Boston Rain Coat Manufacturers' association are-at loggerheads over sev eral changes in working conditions. Lead ers of the union say the changes mean establishment of the open shop and carry a large reduction in wages, but the union intention was said to be not to deciare a strike. Sporadic troubles have occurred in con nection with the several differences. Half a hundred arrests have been made as a result of picketing. Assault was charged in only a few cases, the arrests for the most part having been for violation of city ordinances. WINDHAM. Go., Inc. Members of Besse-Fo&er System State-Wide Inquiry Discloses They AVHI Be Haidry More Than Half of Last Year BURLINGTON. March 10 The price of maple sugar products to be paid the farmers this year in Vermont will npt lie more than half that of last year so far as can be learned from interviews with the manufacturers over the state. As a result there is an indication that Vermont will not make its usual har vest for tho farmers claim that there is no difference in the cost of production and they will only tap what trees their regular help can take care of. One of the chief reasons for paying less this year for syrup and sugar is that because of the general depression in business, there will be a much lesser de mand and the people will not be able to pay what they did last year for luxur ies. Another is that there is at present a big supply of the sugar and syrup, scattered throughout the country. Never in the history of Vermont was so much paid for maple syrup as last year when the manufacturers paid $2 per gallon for the syrup, which included all grades. This is in contrast with the low price paid a few years ago when it' sunk as low as .S.4.1 in 1017. The price was fixed at J1.0." and for several years the price fluctuated between 05 and SO cents jer gallon. Last year some fanners received as much as $3 per gal lon for syrup from the consumer. This was early in the season and the price later went down to $2.."0 and lower. Sugar sold as high as 40 and Q cents when in small cakes and it wasn't hng ago that maple sugar could be purchased at the rate of 11 cents. Last year there were approximately ."(.000.000 trees tapped in Vermont. These averaged a run of. about two and a quarter, or a trifle more, imiuiuIm to the tree. The crop was valued in the vi cinity of i?3.r00.(MM but this vear it is not inougnt mat tins source of revenue will amount to much more than a mil lion and a half. ' BOSTON GARMENT TRADE DISRUPTED Little Will Be Left of Industry if Man ufacturers Carry Out Threats BOSTON. March 10. The garment trades of this city are disrupted by changes in the conditions of labor employ ment. If statements by the manufactur ers are carried out and their shops trans ferred as predicted there , will be little left of an industry which under normal eoiulitions employs upwards of 12,0tl persons. The makers of ready made men's clothing have already transferred their business to other cities. The Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America declare the situation in the men's garment shops to be a lockout: man ufacturers call it a strike. It followed the announcement on Dec. 0 last of the manufacturers that no further agreements would be made by them with the Amal gamated clothing workers. Although nor mally 5.000 workers are employed 1n the shops effected, the greater part of the machines were not running when the no tice was issued and only a few hare been started since. itif c in ten i.arment workers, an Serious Coasting Accident. A serious coasting accident took place Tuesday when a sled traveling at tre mendous sieed on the glare ice struck a tree opitosite the henhouse below A. N. Spvrry's. Guy Rhoades had his right leg, broken above t lie kiieeMarietta King had one or two broken teeth and several bad bruises about the face. John Patch was somewhat bruised and had twp teeth loosened. Sterling Lawrence and Ken neth Smith, who owned the sleds and were also on them, escaped injury. Nelson Fontaine, who happened along, took Guv Rhoades home. Dr. Millington set the leg. Guy may go to the hospital for an x-ray examination after the swelling has gone down. It is probable that there will be no further disobedience this spring of orders of various parents forbidding coast ing on icy roads. One of I. B. Fontaine's team horses died Tuesday.
