LOCAL ISSUES .PREDOMINANT. (Continued from Page One.) . political conditious in Connecticut to day, predicted the election of the Demo cratic ticket by about 17,(XiO. with four of th five congressmen, a Democratic Mate senator, and a close house in the jjeju-ral. assembly. '"Towns that have never gone Demo ciatic will be in the column tomorrow," said Mr. Spellacy. Election Scandal in Ohio. COUJMIJl'S, O.. Nov. C An elec tion scandal, in which one man has been ai rested and four others are sought on warrants charging them with the at tempted purchase of the absentee votes of Pike county residents now living in Scioto and ltos.s counties, today featured the 11 tli hour of Ohio's strenuous jo litical oampajgn. Former Judge A. Z. lilair, of Ports mouth, who presided at the disenfran chiseinent of scores of Adams county vote-sellers several years ago, is assist ing a citizens' protective committee in Pike county with prosecutions. Dry workers continued their cam paign in the churches yesterday against tin proposed amendment to legalize the ale of wine and beer in Ohio. In addition to the wine and beer amendment, the wet and dry issue will nter many of the congressional races. Fourteen congressional candidates have been classed as "wets" by the Anti-Saloon league, and 28 have been classed as "drys." Mrs. Virginia Darlington (lieene of Cleveland is an independent candidate for United States senator, and Common Pleas Judge Florence K. Allen of Cleve land is an independent candidate for judge of the state supreme court. Leaders of both parties agree that the result of tomorrow's . vote in Ohio wiil be an endorsement or rejection of Presi dent Harding's administration by the voters of his home state. MINISTERS SPEAK. (Continued from Page One.) "It is a well known fact that an effort is bing nade in Washington to change the complexion of the United States sen ate h that the ISth amendment may be removed or the Volstead act changed. The time has eOine for people to take a stand for temperance and stand for those candidates that, uphold temperance. It is lime for us to question where the can didates for public office stand. Every man in office who is not in favor of temper ance and temperance legislation is a men a '. We made a great step in advance when we added the 18th amendment to the constitution and every American ought to resist the efforts oemj made to push the country back." ri'hese and other statements equally as forceful were made by Uev. Dr. Clark. T. Itrownell, partor of the First Uaptist church at the regular Sunday evening service last night. Dr. Itrownell's sub ject was A Live Issue, this subject being selected from the text of the 3Tith chapter of Jeremiah a follows: "And I tet before the sons of the house of the Kechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and 1 mid unto them, Drink ye wine." "But they said. We will drink, no wine: for Jonadab the son of Itechab. our father, commanded us, .saying. Ye shrH irirk r wine, neither-ye nor your sons forever." Ds. llrownell .said that the question of temoerance was sometimes said to be a dead i.sue because of past legislation. lie n'lid that the l!Sth amendment was passed after similar state amendments had been pns-:ed bv 34 states in the Union. Rela tive to its passage, the speaker contin ued : "It is" said that this amendment was dropped suddenly on the country while the American soldiery were in Europe. Yet, there i the fact that .14 states had passed their amendments before the de parture of our Pfddiers to foreign s'ul. It i a fallacy that the American soldier is opposed to temperance, for we know t'le homes and families that the soldier ' "me from and we know how these fam ilies stand ou this tjuestion. "Some say that the ISth amendment was passed unlawfully as it was passed l v the senate and not by the people. Amendments to the constitution are made by the senate and not by the noo tile in accordance with, the constitution, lietice it was passed with regularity. Speaking nf the rrsults that liave been accomplished by the passage of the amendment. Dr. Rrownell said: "Tue (losing of the breweries and the distill eries forced than into productive and not unproductive employment. We find that more neonle are owning their homes, sav ings in the honks havo increased nearly one million dollars and the rank and tile of the people have prospered." in many sections of Vermont : Industries closed since January 1922. farmers and (mall merchants depressed, about two miles of empty cars on our unused gran ite railway, unwise and unheard-of -taxes from spending by state authorities, win ter coming on. It is certainly time that more serious and truthful attention be given to condi tions in Vcrmonti JOHN J. WILSON. Bethel, Vt.. Nov. 4. - x , FLORIDA'S CITRUS CROP. Government Puts Gain n Fruit. Output at 15,00u,000 Boxes. Production of citrus fruits in. Florida for the rear 1922-23 season is estimated at 1.1.000.(100 boxes by the United States department of agriculture. Of this to tal about 8,400,000 will be of oranges and tangerines and 0,600,000 of grape fruit. An early forecast of the Cali fornia orange crop made Aug. 1 is 13, THO.OtH) boxes. The commercial citrus crop of Florida last season was approxi mately 13,300,000 boxes, of which 7.300.000 boxes were oranges and 0,000, 000 boxes of grapefruit. Outstanding features of this season's crop are the fine quality and size of fruit from early bloom and the heavy setting of fruit from late bloom. Bloom last spring was heavy all over the citrus belt, except in the storm-swept territory on the west coast, where large quanti ties of the fruit were destroyed in Octo ber. Dry weather followed, with consid erable shedding of fruit, which became serious along the east coast ridge and in parts of the central highland section. Beginning in May and extending through June this year, virtually the en tire citrus belt put on the heaviest late ,bloom the state has ever seen. With fa vorable weather conditions, a heavy set tine of late fruit followed. The condi tion in most groves is therefore a ligltf j to fairly good crop of iruit irom eariy bloom. which is showing unusual size rand ripening somewhat earlier than usual. On the same trees is a crop from late bloom, filling up the loss from shed ding last spring and showing every pros pect of swelling the total shipments next spring and early summer. By sections, the heaviest increase in production over last year is expected on the central highland ridge, especially through the eastern part of Polk county and the north end of Highland county. '.South of the ridge, through parts of Hardee and De Soto counties, produc tion may fall slightly under last year since this section did "not develop a good late bloom. The storm-swept territory of which Pinellas county was the cen ter, will ship about' as. much fruit as it did last year. . Further up the west coast an increase of 10 to 15 per cent is in sight. - The lower west coast will run ahead of last season, principally on oranges, most of . the fruit . being from early bloom. The east coast 6hows an average increase of five, to 10 per cent over last season, with fairly light crops on tke ridge and a full cop in the back country.. Production of tangerines is estimated at 125 per cent of last year. .Prospects are excellent, with trees full of fruit. Production of limes will be slightly heav ier than for la6t year.

United States agricultural department. Creeping bent is the grass which has been found to fur nish the ideal turf for the devotees of the Scotch game, says uu . article prepared by Science Service. The use of this grass has been fought Jjy the seed men because is not raised from seed. The ideal golf lint covering is a run ning, jointed grass, which sends down roots from each joint, thus forming a thick mat, resistent to wear and drought. The method of planting is to cut up these roots in a chopping box and sow them like seed, but covered somewhat deeper. In this. way, a more uniform color and texture is obtained than from grasses raised from seed. Creeping bent is an importation from Germany with which the agricultural department has been experimenting for five years. It as cultivated in rows sir reet apart and spreads rapidly. A hun dred feet of a row is sufficient to sow an entire golf course. Last year 11. " golf courses were supplied in this way and the demand'. is. increasing. Cleverness without principle is no good, and learning is no good without common sense to apply it. - - . . , CLOSER CONTEST NEEDED. Ri-thel Man Points Out State Conditions Unheard of Taxes. Editor of The Reformer : 1 have noted in our fairly courageous and independent papers the opinions ex pressed that closer political contests in Vermont would bring better government. 1 believe you inrii are sincere in so sav ing. ibis campaign could not fairly close without a good word for the mayor of our largest city, and the recent mayor f our state capital, probably the ablest pair of executives ever nominated iu Vermont for governor and lieutenant gov ernor.

Barber To Republican Voters: "A rijebt to elet officers and be elected into office" are among the highest rights conferred upon citizens by the constitution of Vermont. It is equal in importance to "the right of protection in the enjoyment of life, liberty and property." The right of suffrage to vote our fellow citizens into various offices, from humblest to highest lies, at the very foundation of a republican form of government. ' But important and invaluable as this privilege is. it is a remark able fact that great numbers of voters are indifferent about its exercise. If Senator Jjodge should fail of a re-election to the United States sen ate tomorrow it will be because Republican voters will not take the trouble to come out and vote for him, although they may desire his election. If Redfield Proctor, who, by reason of his own and inherited abili ties and his experience in legislation, promises to become one of the ablest Governors the state has had in a score of years, is elected by a small vote, it will be because Republican voters will not come to the polls; They will say to themselves that he will be elected without their votes. I t.j is safe to-say that in every election held in this town for state officers in the last 10 years hundreds of voters have been absent from the polls. Apathy, indifference about voting, is a menace to the stability of the Federal Government. A full Republican vote. is especially important this year through out the country,- to give support to President Harding and his ad ministration. A full vote in Vermont will encourage our state officers to do their best when they-assume their offices in January, next. Brattleboro is a strong Republican town. If it elects a Democrat tomorrow for town representative it will regret it on Wednesday-and always after. The whole state is in the habit of looking to Brattleboro to take the lead in all good woks, and its citizens have reason to be proud of its record. There can be no question in the mind of any voter that Frank E. Barber is the best man that has been named to represent the town in the next Legislature. I fully indorse all that Mc Crosby has so well said of him, lie is identified with the town's best interests. His abili ties easily made him a leader in the last House, and he was highly esteemed bv all the members there never was a word op criticism abottt any vote or -Action of his in relation to appropria tion BILLS OR ANY OTHER MEASURE UNTIL THIS CAM PAIGN WAS BEGUN AGAINST HIM 10 DAYS AGO. I believe it is only for political effect. Let us give him a rousing election on Tues day, lie deserves and will be proud of the support of the women voters of the town. - JAMES M.
