Movement is being started by Republicans formerly classed as Progressives to reform the party from within and thereby prevent the organization of a third party in 1!21. , t The reaction against Old Guard meth ods, which has been so marked in every state primary thus far held, "has con vinced forward-looking leaders that a repetition of the 1!12 split can be averted only by the injection of Progres sive ideas into government and party control. The country is discontented with the national administration, with Republi can machines, and with Old Guard con trol of the national committee, declared one Republican senator who is so con servative as to be numbered as one of tlie Old Guard advisers. He insisted that the results in Indiana and Pennsyl vania represented a revolt against pre vailing methods. The voters, according to this senator are dissatisfied with business conditions, and the administration suffers because of the lack of prosperity. In this reac tion against the party in power the vot ers are also protesting against Old Guard leaders and machine methods in fctates burdened with increased taxes and official extravagance. In Indiana and Pennsylvania the do feat of the machine has been made cer tain by the women who are not held so tightly by party ties as the men. One Republican analyzing the result in In diana said that beside the general pro test against the machine there- were many who opposed Senator New because of personal matters. In Pennsylvania the women demanded economy in the state g:vrnment and a reduction of taxes and they believed the way to get these results was to name Pinchot and dethrone the machine offiec-holders at Harrisburg. The fact that the overwhelming pro test has been directed against not only national' leaders, but also local coditions in these two states has convinced the Re publican diagnosticians that the entire body politic is aroused against prevailing conditions in the states and the nation.

May 10.- Women sum moned for jury service in England show great resourcefulness in providing rea sons or excuses for getting out of the box. The mere common-pleas have been household preoccupations, care of chil dren and employment, and among the rore amusing ones were their husbands' objections, belief that serving on a jury was properly men's work, "stage fright," and even the excuse: "I haven't suitable clothes." Now. parliament is to legalize one rea son, which although it will insure dis missal from juries without further ques tion, is not expected to be heard often in the court rooms. The home secretary has presented in the house of commons an amendment to the juries bill which reads: "A woman who is a vowed member of a religious order living in a convent or other relisrious community phall not be liable to serve on any jury." An amendment was moved giving women the rieht to claim exemption when summoned b"t this was withdrawn when opposed by the home secretary. DEATHS. In West Brattleboro (Melrose hospi tilh May 10.
