of tho country as a whole, and It will

United States Senator Henry Cabot
Lodge of Massachusetts, who holpo.l
to open tho republican campaign in
Ohio, has returned from his western
trip, confident of republican success.
Ho was Informed that President Taft
was raprdly gaining strength In Ohio,
and ho made it n point to llBtcn to
what men on tho trains In Jlfforont
States had to say about the prosUon
tlal contest.
Senntor Lodge was particularly
Improssed by what tho commercial
travelors had to say, and thoy talked
politics almost contlnunlly. Almost o
a man thoy agreed that Roosevelt was
losing In the West, and this agroos
with tho reports that came from his
meetings m dlfforent western States.
Senator Lodgo In spenklng of tho sit
uation said:
"Tho consensus of opinion wan that
the cause of tho falling off In Rooso-
volt sentrmcnt Is duo to his abuse of
othor candidates of both parties. Th?
men whom I hoard talking said t'.iat
tho people of tho West wore growing
tired of this sort of thing and woro
less enthusiastic over Colonel Roose
volt than thoy havo been In years.
'President Taft, on tho other hand,
appears to be gaining overywnere.
People are beginning to stop nnd con
sider his record, and they arc realizing
his valuo ns a president.
Tho mon I henrd on tho trnlns hi 1

advi'ces I received In Ohio, aro hlghiv

President Is going to make a campaign
that will surprise oven his friends."
It Is to he noted m this connection
that according to the Washington
correspondent of the Boston Transcript
the story of tho recession of the Roose

tives of every western State visiting
Washington. The news despatches al

Thoy aro counting heavily upon a
crystallization of public sentiment
within tho next few weeks which shall
demand that tho conJrtlons attending
prosperity shall not be changed. As
the time of election draws near, fioy
argue, popular realization of prosper
ous conditions will develop into a tense
nnxioty that prosperity continue. They
know that tho election of Woodrow
Wilson, as the executive of tho fan
tastic Baltimore platform, would alarm
business men everywhere! while tho

Tho President never has doubted
that the solid business sense of tho
country has been friendly to hrm; nor
by this Is meant such Interests as aro
represented by tho trusts. It Is the
purpose of Mr. Taft. If ho remains In
office, to bring about a legislative re
adjustment of the trust question wMch
will, on the ono hand, protect the peo

body can nnd fault with a party for

proposition in Vermont would como
under this head Is n question.
It Is stated that one of the posslb'll

Horner W. Ilnlley Plays William Allen
White Vermont Eelvctlon
Finn re.
To tho Editor of Tho Freo Press:
In tho Boston Journal of Sept. 21 Mr.
William Allen White purports to analyze
the political situation In Vermont.
The article begins on tho front pngo
with very large type In tlse words,
Third Party Only Hope of Progress."
The article opens as follows:
(Copyright If 12 by William Allen White.)
"The official returns from Vermont Indi
cate that In h rock ribbed republican
State tho Progressive pnrty nftcr a ten
days' cnmpnlgn polled within 6,P0 votes
of a majority, and outran In votes tho
Democratic party that had bocn orgnnlz
d nearly 1C0 years."
The vote at our September election was
'lctchor, republican 20,2T,9
lowe, democrat 20,330
Metzger, progicsslvo lK.SflO
Smith, prohibitionist 1.143
Suitor, socialist 1,181
Any pupil In our public schools knows
that It takes more than half of a num
ber to mnke a majority of It, and In this
Instance that 32,517 Is the smallest pos
sible majority of Vermont's total vote
In the recent election.
Mr. White, however, says In large type
thnt the Progressive party polled within
K,00i votes of a majority, the truth Is they
lacked 16,717 of a majority.
.Mr. White says that the Progressive
party outran the votes of tho Democratic
party, the truth Is that the progressives
had 4,."0 less votes than the Democratic
rho quotation from Mr. White's article
above given. Is his text for a column
article, ami the article Is precisely what
one would anticipate from such a text.
Mr. White erases the Republican party
from the national blackboard, and makes
the Democratic party the tall to a high
flying progressive kite.
I do not recollect thnt I have over seen
so much untruth pressed Into so narrow
quarters as Is found In the above quota
tion from Mr. White's article. Nor havo
I over seen a statement promulgated by
nny newspaper so well calculated to de
ceive, because nowhere In tho article does
he mention tho number of votes received
by any candidate or party In tho Vermont
I was not a little surprised that my
home town gave Mr. Metzger. the Pro
gressive Party candidate, 116 votes. But
If my fellow townspeople havo depended
on tho Boston Journal and kindred
papers for political Information, and havo
relied on William Allen Whlto nnd kin
dred writers for political succor, and the
Information and succor was cut from the
same loaf as the slice above quoted, a
much larger vote for Mr. Metzger would
have been less surprising.
The 116 voters for Mr. Metzger In my
home town wero made up from demo
crats and republicans, with great em
phasis on the latter.
At any rate I know the men who com
pose this Progressive party of 116, they
are my townspeople nnd the most of
them former associates In the Republican
party and whether republicans or
Democrats, are as true and loynl citizens
as we uho are standing by tho old par
ties. The rule established for my good old
home town of Newbury applies with equal
force to 213 other Vermont towns.
Vermonters are not Inventors of gross
deception, or hucksters In political fabrics
whose warp, woof and filling are u tls
sue of finely designed lies. Vermont
newspapers are not dispensers of rotten
politics, nor are Vermont newspaper men
political grafters. If perchance thero
should bo an exception to this general
rule, It wohld be rare enough to attract
uncomfortable attention.
It Is observed that Mr. White's arti
cle was not written for the Journal read
ers tho morning following election, when
returns aro Incomplete and rumors nro
rife, but eighteen days after election
when the returns nre all In.
It Is little wonder that n newspaper,
with an old time record for honesty and
political probity, If It chooses to become
a. vehlclo of clean cut lies, should deceive
Its readers, and lead them astray.
Honesty, loyalty and truo patriotism
may not be nn estoppel against tho in
road of an arch deceiver.
So far as the Progressive party in Ver
mont Is concerned, tho principal benefi
ciary of this kind of campaigning Is Mr,
Metzger, Its candidate for governor, does
he stand for it, I do not believe so, If
not he should step on It,
In the National Progressive party the
chief beneficiary of this sort of political
deceit miiBt be Mr. Roosevelt, the self
nppolntcd candidate for Its presidency,
does he npprove of this kind of cam
palgnlng, If not he should stop It and tell
who pays the freight.
Fellow Vermonters, do you need slate
and pencil and the seclusion of your
closet to figure out a problem of this
sort, nnd to determine where you ought
to stand In a campaign of this kind?

Financiers and Lawyer Will Tell

(From the Now York Press.)
Theodore N, Vnll took a party of 13
Now York financiers nnd professional
men up to his country homo In Ver

Tho IB left In two ptivato cars on the,
Blue Mountain Express, their fishing rods
tucked away where thoy could watch
them until they fell naloep.
To-night nftcr sitting down to a good
dinner in Vall's mountain home, tho
Hobby club will listen tto a talk by their
host on "Tho Intercommunication of In

tho part played In civilization by tho
telephone, telegraph nnd other means of
rapid communication. After that catch

such things will bo tho way they'll make

Justlco Victor J. Dowllng, president of
tho club, who collects old books, and
Vail und Alvln W. Krcch, president of
tho Equitable Trust company, sat to
gether nnd told about the additions to
their collections.
Others who aro on the trip are George

and Dr. Bashford Dean, tho Zoologist,
who has a fine collection of old armor.
John C. Tomllnson, lawyer, whose son,
John C. Tomllnson, Jr., Is sccreotary of
tho Hobby club, went along, too. Hu
says he has the best collection of sun
dials. Two sundials of his wero made
by Thomas Jefferson. John Qulnn, law

and William M. Schnllzer arc others In
tho pnrty.
Formed a year ago, tho club counts
among Its small membership tho own
ers of several of the world's finest col
lections. Although the club has no

a building will bo taken up on the trip.

tainty Into the nnalaess
The Washington correspondent of tho
Boston Transcript cays: President Taft's
unfailing optimism novor has been given
a better chance to shine than at pres
ent, when he returns to Washington for
u day In the midst of a presidential cam
palgn, with tho air full of political
rumors nnd all his friends looking to
him to tell them the latest news In poll
tics. As n result of his conferences
while in tho city two interesting facts
ran be stated. One Is that the Fresl
dent's optimism Is doing business at tho
old stand, with more vigor than over; tho
other thnt tho reports which have come
to him nre such as to encourage him to
bo cheerful.
Mr. Taft has been essentially a busi
ness president, notwithstanding that his
life training has been In the law, henco
It Is not surprising to find him regarding
business sentiment as the most trust
worthy of political barometers. Tho
President and nil his advisers arc con
fident that ono of tho strongest fnctors
fnvorablo to him In the present contest
Is the abundant nnd general prosperity
of the country.
Tho political situation Is, In a sense,
nnnlogous to that of 1896, when Bryan
was the democratic candidate against
McKInlcy. Bad crops had united with
threatened freo trade to bring about
hard times, and the country was hungry
for a return of prosperity. It was gen
erally believed that the repeal of the
Wilson tnrlft act of 1891 and a roturn to
high protection would bring back good
times. The country elected McKlnley by
an overwhelming vote, nnd simultaneous
ly business began to Improve, and be
fore long prosperity was ngnln In full
swing. It has remained unbroken ever
since, snvo for the brief flurry known as
the "rich man's panic" In the last year
of the Roosevolt administration.
Tho era of prosperous conditions ap
pears to have reached Its climax at tho
present time. While prices are high, they
are an outgrowth of many causes, and
wages are higher than ever before. More
people are employed, and at better wages
than ever before In the history of tho
country. To continue Taft means to con
tinue prosperity. In the opinion of tho
thousands of correspondents who con
tribute to swell President Taft's mall;
hence, the basis of Mr. Taft's confidence
that the sober second thought of tho
country, maturing between t.ow nnd elec
tion day, will re-elect htm.
The President and his advisers have
been quick to note the significance In tho
tone of tho recent speeches of Woodrow
Wilson. The democratic candidate, It ap
pears, Is putting tho soft pedal upon his
remarks dealing with business. A demo
crat and a radical from his youth, tho
Gbvcrnor of New Jersey Is attempting
the difficult feat of making conserva
tive speeches upon a radical platform; of
trying to cast out tho fears of business
men respecting his own views upon tho
tariff and the trusts, whllo appealing for
the radical vote In his own pnrty as a
free tiader and u trust buster. It Is
believed In administration circles that
Governor Wilson cannot rldo those two
horses at the same time without falling
between them; that the people will not
forget his truo character as a radical
while watching his Impersonation as a
Reports from Ohio mado to the Presi
dent show that the reception of Sena
tor Lodge's speech in Columbus last
Saturday has Justified the wisdom of
tho national committee In sending tho
distinguished Massachusetts senator Into
the President's own State. All the re
cent reports from Ohio havo Indicated
that tho President was dally growing
stronger there, and the address of Sena
tor Lodge covered n phaso of the cam
paign which fow other speakers could
havo treated so ably. Tho Lodge speech.
It Is reported, has proved extremely val
uable In sifting the wheat from the
chaff and showing the voters the funda
mental Importance of the renl Issues of
the campaign.
Senntor Lodge was among the first, If
not the first of tho American thinkers
to expose tho fallacy of the Roosevelt
reasoning on constitutional questions. It
will be recalled that Roosevelt recently
accused of unfamlllarlty with the history
of the world certain gentlemen who held
to tho doctrine that the crowning glory
of the American republic was to bo
found In the restraint which tho Ameri
can peoplo voluntarily put upon their
own power.
VELT. In his famous Princeton speech, Mr.
Lodge found one of his most striking
passages in a citation so sharply at
varlanco with the Roosevelt sneer as to
Illuminate In a Hash the diametrically
opposite positions of tho two men on a
question of profound Importance. This
Illustration also suggested that possibly
tho third term candidate knew less of
history than he would havo the country
"On a memorable occasion," said Sen
ator Lodge, quoting tho great Lord Ac
ton, "the assembled Athenians declared
It monstrous that they should bo pre
vented from doing whatever they chose.
. . . They resolved that they would
be bound by no laws that wero not of
their own making. In this way the
emancipated people of Athens becomo a
tyrant; and their government, tho pio
neer of European freedom, slnnrts con
demned with a terrible unanimity by all
the wisest of the anclerts. They ruined
their city by attempting to conduct war
by debate in tho market place. .
The repentance of the Athenians cama
loo late to save the republic. But the
lesson of their experience endures for
all times, for It tenches that govern
ment of the whole people, being tho
government of the most numorous and
tho most powerful class, Is an evil of
tho same nature as unmixed monarchy,
and requires, for nearly tho iiuno rea
sons, Institutions that shall protect tt
against Itself, and shall uphold the per
manent reign of law against arbitrary
revolutions of opinion."
GANIZATION. In ths eurly stages of the campaign,
following the republican national con
vention at Chicago, the regulars, still
dased by the unexpected sweep ot the
Rooeorctt forces, ware doubtful wh.ther
or Uum, pouM noiotaia its nyal
llcali organizations In the various States,
to nay nothing of carrying republican
Btnteo for Taft. The presidential cam
paign Is yet young, ns far ns heavy fir
ing Is concerned, but already it Is evi
dent that the republican organizations
inroughout tho country will remain In
tact. The national committee nnd tho
Slate committees now fcot assured of
this and they aro now approaching the
position which President Taft person
ally always has occupied, that the Taft
vote at the polls will bo very heavy
whon tho peoplo havo thought things
over and mado up their minds as to
which candidate wltl do best for tho
country. It Is understood hore that tho
national committee will continue, awhlla
longer to let Roosevelt and Wilson bang
away at each other nnd will not train
tho heavy republican batteries until tho
last few weeks ot tho campaign, Tho
"big orators" will then bo unloosed In all
the doubtful States and tho colonel's
record will bo subjected to such an
overhauling as It never had before.

granulated sugar to six pounds of toma
toes, or half the recipe may be made. Put
the tomatoes Into the preserving kettle
with Just enough water to prevent burn
ing: cover closely and cook until tho skins
burst. Skim out the tomatoes and add
the sugar to the water, and, If It Is not
sufficient to melt the sugar, ndd a trifle
more. Cook 20 minutes skimming the syr
up cleAr. Remove the skins from the to
matoes without breaking the fruit, then
drop Into the syrup and let them boll
about one minute and no more. Seal
while hot.
Wipe six pounds of tomatoes thorough
ly, pour some boiling water over them.
Let them stand for a few minutes till
the skins can be easily removed. Then
