Wholesale Distributors, Boston WHY This is No. 7 of a series of political advertisements issued by the opponents of Mr. Barber's candidacy for' representative in the next legislature. Their object is to show why Mr. Barber is not justified in asking re-election why, in the opinion of his opponents, he is not fitted to represent Brattleboro. Personalities will have no place in these advertise ments, no more than they will in the campaign so far as Mr. Barber's opponents are concerned. Mr. Barber Raves A Sign of Weakness In his hectic advertisement of "yesterday Frank E. Barber challenges his opponents to tell of all the appropriation bills killed by the legislature of 1921, which he says amounted to "over one half of one million dollars." . Did they? The total appropriation bills killed by the house of which Mr. Barber was a member amounted to $223,135. And of these MR. BARBER HIMSELF VOTED FOR ONE OF $150,000. Therefore, the total amount of the appropriation bills he actually opposed was $73,135 mostly requests for town aid. Think of it ! Out of appropriations passed of over $5,000,0007 Mr. Barber voted in favor of an appropriation of $100,000 for a dairy building at the Vermont Experiment Station, together with $25,000 a year for its support, but the bill was- killed by the house 97 to 108. Isn't this evidence that Mr.. Barber himself was even more extravagantly inclined than the legislature as a whole, extravagant as that body wras? Nobody claims that Mr. Barber-should have crippled the School for Feeble Minded or curtailed the work of the Industrial School or denied adequate support to the institutions for the care of the insane. WHAT THEY DO CLAIM and what he has vet failed to disprove IS THAT HE MADE NO DETERMINED EFFORT TO CONSERVE THE TAXPAYERS' MONEY. When all's said and done, when all the debits and credits are placed where they belong, the fact remains that the legislature of .1921, in which Mr. Barber might have made a good record, cost the State of Vermont over $1,000,000 more than it should have. AND' MR. BARBER DID NOTHING TO KEEP THE COST DOWN. ' Can the voters of Brattleboro hope for future economy if they put their stamp of ap proval on that sort of a record? That question is of far more importance than sending one more Republican to a Legislature that will he over whelmingly Republican in any event. (To be continued.) The Edward R.
