The act as passed reads: listers shall set the polls of all inhabitants of the state, citizens and aliens, over twenty one and under seventy years of age, in the grand list of the town wherein such inhabitant resides on the first day of April in each year, at one dollar each." It was stated by the listers this morning that the women can effect a considerable saving in expense to the town if they call at the office of the listers to have their names placed on the list, but if this is not done it will be necessary to make a house-to-house canvass, the same as is done in taking a census. This will require much extra time of the listers and it may te neces sary to enlist other assistance for, the task. KORSLUK FINED $300 AND COSTS TIE (il'AKI), STEAL Fl US.

LISTERS CORRECT FALSE IMPRESSION WOl LD RAISE 2.75 LIMIT. Pleads Guilty in Municipal Court to Sell ing Pint of Liquor Two Gallons f of IILs Stock ".Moonshine." In the municipal court this forenoon Keston Korsluk of lkidgeport, Conn., who- waN arrested Monday morning and had -been held since in default of $500 bail for a jury trial on the charge of selling liquor. to Eddie Zanalack of Flat street, withdrew his plea of guilty, through Attorney O. 15. Hughes, and en tered a plea of guilty to one offense of selling. After arguments by State's At torney Harold E. Whitney and Attorney Hughes. Judge Frank I).' E. Stowe fined Korsluk $300 and costs. State's Attorney Whitney thought that more than a minimum tine should be imposed, as he said Korsluk came here on the Sunday night train with three gallons of alcohol, met Zanalack and went to the latter's room, sold him a pint of alcohol, to which lie added a pint of water and some coloring matter, and received Jft for it : that he caused word to be sent out to Polanders that hewn here with stuff to sell, and that several arrived at the house to make purchases. The state's attorney said it was this sort of traffic by Polanders that had caused many deaths in the Connecticut valley the past year. Counsel for Korsluk argued that the respondent came here to obtain work and that the alcohol was for Korsluk's own use. althongh admitting that the amount was rather larger than he should have brought. He said Korsluk did not plan to sell any of the liquor and refused to sell any except the pint bought by Zana lack. Korsluk, he said, was a victim of spite on the part of some disgruntled companions of Zanalack. Korsluk came near '"spilling the beans" when, in response to an inquiry fi m the court as to whether he had any statement to make, he said that only one gallon of the liquor he brought was straight alcohol, the other two gallons being '"moonshine." Most of the jurymen wlio had been summoned recvived notice not to com" before the time for them to leave qjne.

The min ers' representatives declared thev were unable to consent to this. ; Shortly after adjournment of the conference the Imard of trade issued an oflicial state ment saying "I he negotiations have broken down." Many Women Seem to Think that Only Those Who Vote Mut Pay Taxes, but This Is Not Correct. Every woman in the town of Urattle boro between the ages of I'l and 7n will be required to pay a poll tax this year, regardless of whether t hey care to cast their ballots witli the men. The listers, who have an office- in the town hall building, said today that but few women had been lUted and it has come to them from main sources that women are laboring miner false impres sions, some of them believing that if they do not care to vote they do not have to pay taxes. This rule a-lied to all women except property holders up to this year, but in the last session of Senator Walker Wants Congress Asked to "Liberalize" Volstead Act. ALP.AXY, X. Y., April 7 James J.

Organiza tion of a veterans' sei vice administra tion and consolidating existing govern mental bureaus having to do with the treatment of disabled service men is rec ommended in a report submitted today to President Harding by Charles Dawes of Chicago, chairman of a special com mittee investigating soldier relief work. The Campaign for the Irish Relief Fund For the suffering women and children of Ireland will be continued in Brattleboro during the com ing week, April 10-17. This movement is for charitable purposes solely and is absolutely non-political and non sectarian. The spirit that prompts it is the same spirit that has aroused the best of humanity to the relief of suffering and distress wherever found. The Irish people have always responded lib erally to the calls of distress in every land under the sun. The generous people of America are asked to help them now. Welsh Mines Filling I p. In most districts of the South Wales coal fields the extremists are winning the lay. In one colliery after another ofh rials are being compelled to abandon the pumps. Unless something is done to save the mines from the iurushing water the damage will be so extensive that 70.000 miners will be deprived of an opportunity of employment for months. Jn practically every mining area throughout Lanarkshire, Scotland, a men acing attitude is adopted bv the miner? and their wives to the volunteers who are working the pumps. There have been demonstrations and scutflings at several pits necessitating police intervention. At some places there has been much wanton damage accompanied by looting. The most serious disturbance was at Cowdenbeath, of which a brief report was cabled yesterday. On Tuesday night rioters attempted to overpower the police through sheer force of numbers, and a 'pitched battle ensued. All manner of missiles were used, glass bottles and stones being most favored, and these were used in abundance. WASHOUT. DELAYS; ,: . TRAINS FROM SOUTH About 175 Feet of Track Near Mount Hermon CJone Week Will I5e Con sumed in Reptiir Work. The washing away of a bulkhead and a section of track on the Connecticut river division of the Boston & Maine railroad near Mount Hermon late yes terday will necessitate repair work that will take a week, olfLeersof the road said today.

A section of track Moont'173- feet long at a point two and a half miles north of Mount Hermon station was washed away when surface water that had accumulated to a c.cpth of 20 feet west of the tracks broke through a blocked culvert. , The track embankment was gouged out to a depth of 00 feet below the track level and the trestle work in stalled last year following a similar washout 'was entirely washed away. The northtxmnd train due here at 2.09 reached the scene a few minutes ln-hind scheduled time, just after the water had torn away the track, and was Hanged by watchmen.

Hint of a Teniorary Subsidy. It is assumed that Lord iK-rby's sug gestion, which had already been- made by A If red P.igland. coalition Unionist, for Birkenhead, carried great weight with the government and probably induced the oiler to negotiate. Lord Derby wields enor mous jiolitical influence in the Conserva tive party, and his suggestion touches what is considered a weak point in the government armr.r. namely, the precipitate removal of control the moment the onl industry was affected by trade depression. It is believed, despite the government's linn attitude regarding a subsidy, that the line the negotiations are likely to take will be the granting of some sort of tem porary subsidy to tide the industry over the period necessary to negotiate an ac ceptable wage settlement.
