Tho new plant whlch Moody and Al mou aro bulldlng on Mad Rlver ls well under way and the work ls to be push ed to completion this fall. The coffer daui waa put ln last week. shuttlng the water off from halt of the river bcd and leavlng the rocKs exposed. A large force Is at work on the project now and It will be lncreased to 50 mcn withln a short tlme and duy and nlght gangs will be put on In a few wepks. Anyone drivlng up tho valley can but be Impressed with the magnltude of the undertaklng and the posslbill tles for harnesslng the latent powor ln this river, whlch untll this com pany began its development, had been used for nothlng larger than small sawmllls. The road ls belng changed for a distance of three-nuarters of a mlle, so that it will sklrt along the hlllslde above the level of the pond. This pond will be one of the sights of the valley when it is flooded, as it will be a mlle and a half long and very wide. An excelleut vlew will be afforded from the road. The new plant is to be a mlle above the old one and Is at what is known as the Casey bridge, one of the land- marks of the valley. The work of changing the road and drawlng grav el for the mlxlng of concreto has been golng on for tho past two months and there are four ox teams and seven two-horso teams now at work, though this number is smaller than what had been used previously. The dam is to be of concrete, 32 feet high, glving a Sicad at the water wheels of C0 feet. A mlxer, driven by an electric motor, has been set up on the bauk and it will requlre seven men to keep it filled with cement and gravel. The prepared cement will be conveyed to the dam by means of a blondln, travellng on a cableway, spanning the rlver at the dam. From the dam the water will be carried to the wheels by a steel pen stock slx and a half feet In diameter and 1000 feet long. At the power liouse, whlch is to be of concrete, the water will enter a 000 horsepower wheel, dlrect connected to a revolving fleld alternatlng current generator, of 900 horsepower. The dam, water wheels and generator will set on the solld rock. The contract for the hy draulic efiulpment and the generator call for dellvery by October 1, at whlch tlme is is espected that the dam will be completed. The new plant will be a mlle from the old one and the arrangement ls such. that the water will be passed through the new wheels, into the low er pond and thence through tiie old wheels, thus uslng it twice, with 110 loss of head or fall ln the process. Tho company now has contracts for power nearly to tho capaclty of the present plant and the surplus power from tho new plant Is to be marketed in this city and Northfield. The clec trlcal arangements will be such that olther of the water plants or the steara auxlliary plant ln this city may be used separately or all of them at one tlme on one Hne, so that the company will be In a position to insure flrst class servlce to their patrons. A pilo containing 3000 cublc yards of gravel is already at the slte of the dam, havlng been drawn during the winter, and the cement ls belng taken to the place as fast as needed, com Ing to Middlesex by rall. All prellm Inary work has been done now and the actual constructlon work will be rushed during tho perlod of low wat er. The coffer dam sustalned a severe test last week,- at the tlme of the heavy rain. The rlver rose so that water ran over the top of tho dam, but 110 damage was sustalned. Moody and Almon now furnish day power ln this city and all the power used in the stoue sheds in Northfield, as well as the street and commerclal llghting of that place. Tho system ls owned by O. E. Moody of Waterbury, a well known lumber man and capi- tallst and G. II. Almon of this city. NOTABLE ANNIVERSARY I'cnteiinial of Deviinlntlon Causcd Hy lluimuiij l'ond lo llo Obscrrcd liy Orleans County lllstorlcal SocJcly lunc G. Barton, May 28. Increaslng inter est In tho centennlal celobratlon of tho Important hlstorical cvent of tho runnlng away of the waters of "Long Pond" In Glover, set for .Tune C, by tho Orleans County Hlstorical Socl ety, was gtven new Hfe Friday when It was announccd that A. C. Phllllps, of Glover, a descondent of one 'of those present at the lettlng out of the pond on June G, 1310, had dlscovercd the old mlllslte of tho Aaron Wllson grlstmlll swcpt away hy tho rushlng waters on that eventful day a century ago. No trace of the slte has beforo been found, but thero seems to be little dbubt about the dlscovery of Mr. Phllllps belng- the long sought rulns. Some of the stone watl foundatlon ls clearly vlslble, standlng ln one place nearly slx feet high, though most of the wall Is ln a heap of rulns. A part of the old dam made of logs and a trace of the cnnal mado to carry the wnter to the old overshot water wheel from tho dam is vlslble. All ls grown over with trees and the mlll slte Itself Is in a small cedar swamp some distance from the stream. This probably accounts for lts non-dis-covery by searchers before and lts lo catlou away frgin Uie sU'?am niay bg aeeounted for by the fact that tfie channel of the stream and the entlre topography of the valley was chang ed by the gullylng of the lmmense body of rushlng water. It will be remembered that this pond, nearly two mlles long, over a half mlle wide and very deep, was located ln the towns of Glover and Greensboro at the very top of the Lamoille and Barton river dlvide, and antedating 'June G, 1810, was known as "Long Pond," 'but slnce that date has been known as "Runaway" or "Dry" pond. The entlre waters of this pond were released on that date ln an attempt to cut a channel to the north In the hope of Increaslng the water Ilow of the stream flowlng north to the Barton rlver system, at though the natural outlet was to the south, lts waters 'forming one of the head branches of the Lamoille rlver. When the water was let into the ar tlllcial channel just cut, is gulled out the light sandy soil so rapidly that the banks began falllng ln and the mcn who had been doing the dlg ging had to run for their lives or be drawn into the outrushlng torrent of water. In a short tlme the entlre body ofwate r had left its bounds and swept the valley nbrth for ,23 mlles to lake Memphremagog, tearing up the forests and sweeping away what few bulldings had at that early date been erected In its path. The celebratlon on June C, con slsts of a carefully prepared hlstori cal address by Hon. F. W. Baldwin, of Barton, a dlsplay of varlous rel- Ics Incldent to the event, the unvelling of a granlte marker in the dry bed of the pond beslde the road whlch runs the entlre length of,the pond, remarks by descendents. band music, etc. It will be an eventful day for Orleans county and the descendents of those present at the cutting of the channel.

Earller in the scason it had been pretty generaliy conceded that Essex county would support tho candldacy of Dr. John A, 'Mead, of Rutland, for the Republican nomlnatlon for Governor. The slt- uatlon today, however, dlffers very materlally from that of a few weeks ago. The change of sentiment ls due, in part at least, to a recent vlslt made to this town by Frederlck G. Floet- wood, of Morrisville, also a candl date for the Governorshlp. Mr. Fleet wood made an excellent speech whlch was very well recelved and won many friends for hlm. It has been reported that Senator Martin Van Buron Vanco of this town who represonted Essex county ln the Senate of 1908, promlsed to dellver Essex county for Mead. This promlso apparently dld not pleaso eomo other Essex county men and they deterinln ed to show Senator Vance that ho was not ln a position to dellver tho goods.

SPOKE TO VETERANS (Continued from pago one.) ernment passed and then came the Declaratlon of Independence when tlme and won the admlratlon of the whole world was established. Those men, the signers of that declaratlon, were, as Hoar sald, 'The greatest na-tion-bullders the world has ever known.' "Llberty met its flrst check because all Christendom was giveu over to the slave trade. From the tlme or WUlIara and Mary to George the Third, colonlal gov.e'rnors were com manded to keep a s'upply of market able negroes on band to sell to the coionies. Mother England forced slaves upon us. All the States ex- cept Georgia and South Caroliua de clared agalnst the traft'ic but the gov- ernors were instructed to veto aud forbld such laws. "In the next eleven years after the Declaratlon of Independence during whlch we began the esabllshment of a ceutrallzed government, we came agaln to the same evll. Seveu of the 13 States abollshed slavery. Vermont after lts separation from New York, wrote Into its orilnal constltutlon a ueciarauon against tranic withln Its bordors, the flrst State to take this actlon. But when the constltutlon was presented for ndoptlon, it was of supreme importance tlint all the States should jolu ln a union and our forefathers, thiuking tho slave trade on the downward path, allowed Its recognitiou untll 1S08 ln order that Georgia and South Carollna might unltc with tho sister States. Senti ment rau high, however. Mason's prophecy, Provldence punlshes na tional sin by nntlonal caiamlty,' was perfectly fnlfllled by our scqurglng ln the slxtlps. To show how deeply rooted was the sentiment agalnst sla very, Jefferson's ordlnance forblddlng the traffic in tho W'estern lands wnsi dofeated by a majorlty of one. "In 18Q8 came tho Louisana pur- chaso and tho luvontlon of tho cot ton gln whlch rovolutiontzcd tho cot ton trndo of tho South. Profltablo under tho old reglme It be- becamo far moro so under tho new. In addltlon, tho hand loom hnd been replaced ln Great Brltalu by the pow er loom and England wns crylng for cotton. Slaves trlpled lu value. In 1800, wo woro ralslng 155,000 bales; In 1830, 977,000 bales nnd after Great Brltaln took off tho cotton duty, wo were ralslng flve mllllou bales. Cot ton was klng. That whlch had beon nn abomlnablo crliuo ln tho eyes of Jefferson became n rlghteous insti tutlon lu tho eyes of church and State. The effect of slavery was to looic down upon labor and deem the laborer n menlal, Calhouu termed' slavery au envlable condltion of the laborlng man. Slave marrlages were not recognized and tho breaklng up of famllles was countenanced. Politl ca'lly, the South became an ollgarchy. Labor was degraded and the poor white sprung up at that time exlsts today. "The North, slow to rouse, rose to the couflict between darkness and light and Abraham Llncoln's electlou to the presidency In 18C0 was the death knell of slavery. Secesslon was all that was left for the South If she retained her slave tratfic. 'Our new government, said Alexander II. Stephens, 'Is founded upon the corn- erstone that the negro is not equal to the white man and subsorvlence ls his natural and normal state.' "That was the Issue confronting us when the North rose in a body to preserve tho Natlon. It was a crucial iieriod in the world's bistory. The progress of Its civlitzatlou was at stake. Liborty was attacked ln tbe home of its friends. Llncoln's call for troops was answered from ocean to ocean to wipe out this dark blot upon our hlstory. The North was novcr so strong as when stimulated by defeat. Elghty thousand njen came ln a month to retrieve the pen insular defeat of 1862. Sixty thou sand men were coiumonly ralsed at one call. "Tho contesi area covered would overlap much of tho map of Europe. They say we spend largo sums of our army and navy. Our haltour reven- ues from tariff sources are spent upon our armles and navies. but tho army of tho dead of the slxties is tive tlmes is great as that of tho llving today, God gave us tho victory. The slgul- flcance of that achirvement as tho close of the wnr Influenced the na tlons of tho world. Macaulay and oth er thinkers had watched to seo tho sunderlng of a free govcrninont maln talned by the people but we not only nbollshed the slave traffic but wo pre served tho Natlon and we galned tho world's confldonce. England has cx tended her franchlse, lance ls n Re publlc, Germany lias a well-founded democrntlc idea, Itaiy lias n constl tutional Parllament, Austrla aud Hungary are maklng progress, Rus sla Is breaklng the hold of tho Czar ln surrendor to God's movement. lEighty million people have benefltted iby what you men of the sixties did. "Twenty inlilions of people from foreign lands have settled lu our Western lands. Capltal lias been re leased and Invested in rallroads. Our farming area equals the total extent of Great Brltaln, France, Belglura, Spaln, Denmark, etc. When the war opened we had 25,000,000 miles of railroad. Today we could draw elght llnes about the globe and the equator with our Unlted !!utes mlleage. Our mlning corporations exceed those of other nations. Our manitfacturies have risen from nothlng to what is almost supremacy. More men in Massachusetts own their own roofa than in Great Britain. The last ceu sus shows 48 per cent of men of tho United States own their own homes and 78 per cent are free from ea cumbrance. "Gloriously have we wiped out the uattonul sin but bigness does uot make a great natlon. As much as we glory In the American spirlt based on recognitlon of the Individual, the fatherhood of God and the brother liood of man, we esteem more highly those prlnclples under whlch our country has become a world power. Vo have tho broadest liberty under law. Our religlous freedom is per fect. "Tho people of the Natlon will nev- er forget this day, our'passover day when we passed out of tho gloom of a natlonal sin Into the confidence of God's face and repeated our Declara tlon of Independeuce. When the last survivor ot war ia dead, these little ones will keep up Memorlal Day with flags and tlowers whlch are more en durlng than monuments of marble or bronze. t "Do Justice to those men who went out boys and came back rlch ln ser vice. Come out year by year to hon or those mcn who lald down their lives In a contest whlch has done more and will do more for the world than any other contest ever waged. "And, In closlng, the achlevement wo glory ln, tho country wo glory ln, the South glory ln also. If there were a foreign wnr threatenlng today, the South would give her last son as wil llngly, as gladly to the servlce ot the country as would tno North. Tho South ls today a part of the Union."
