ANOTHER SNUB FOR HAPGOOD Only One Voice Raised in Favor of His Resolution about Lump Sum for Leg islators. Monlpeller, Oct. 10. The Senate made a move toward prompt action and the early redemption of campaign promises this afternoon when It ordered to a third rending the trustee process bill Introduced by Mr. Ilabbllt. This Is identical with the bill passed by the House of 1!10 and killed In the Sebatp. When the bill was ordered In a third reading, Mr. Harbor moved that the rules be suspended unci the bill placed upon its pussuKo. Mr. Wallls objpcteit. thinking It too busty action. A vote was tuken and It stood 20 yes and nine no. A three-fourths vote Is neeufMiry for the suspension of the rules and this wns not enst, so the motion wns lost nnd tbn bill will be rend the third time to-morrow. Al though almost every senator has gone on record na In favor of such a bill, there Is some opposition In the Senate and a debate may occur when the mat ter comes up. Most of the afternoon was taken up with the Joint assembly to hear the report of the committee to canvass votes for county oftlcers, probate of ficers Rnd Justices of the peace. RIT.LS BKOIN TO APPKAlt. Bills were Introduced In both houses nnd there will bo a havy Influx early i.iit.m "cvivi nrs sunn iim inr he committee revision of bills Ik tho rouirhlv or- 'Knnlzrd. Kred 10. Oleason of Mont- pcller has been ungnKCd as clerk of the committee and as soon as it Is pro vided with stenographers It will b? In thorough worklnp order. ( Mr. Hapgood of Peru was snubbed iiK-aln by the House this afternoon He wanted the committee on State and court expenses Instructed to re port within 10 days a lump sum which they would recommend as the pay foe members of the Legislature and the pay they would recommend for State House employes whose compensation Is not established by law. The reso lution was killed without debate, Mr. HapRood's voice belns the only one raised in Its favor when the vote waa called for. The mlsslni; credentials of the six senators have been Mod with the see rotary of the Senate. Devotional exercises were conducted In the Senate this morning by Mr. Hewitt, Hie representative from Plainllcld. Mr. Farman, the blind chaplain, Is 111 with a severe cold and has not yet come to Montpellcr. The House has a Rood sup ply of clergymen so It Is not necessary to no outside that body to find some one to officiate until Mr. Karman re covers and appears In Ills place. The first move In regard to revising Oie tnx laws was made this morning, when Mr. Wallls Introduced a Joint res olution providing for an Investigation In M representative towns of the amount of deductions claimed on account of debts owing. His Idea is to accumulate data which will furnish information t'o guide the committees and members In any ac- lon they may desire to take with ref- eience to the matter of offsets. Mr. Wallis followed this up In the aft ernoon with a bill permitting a deduction of not more than ll.&QO over the aggre gate of United States bonds, other bonds, stocks and loans, deposits in s&vtnn bunks and in national banks on which more than two per cent Interest Is paid. The Stuto fair want! an appropria tion of J10.000 and $30,000 la asked for to build a new dormitory for the agricultural school at Randolph and to make other Improvements. The first House bill provides for the repeal of the hedgehog bounty law and is very favorably received by the members. The question regarding the proposals of amendment to the constitution has been settled. The secretary of state will cer tify to the Senato the adoption of the proposals by the Senate of 1910, and the presiding officer will lay'them before the Hcniitn at some time In his discretion At a meeting of the House committee nn street railways this afternoon for the purpose of organizing, Representative Thomas l(. Howley of Burlington was elected secretary. COUNTY ORGANIZATIONS, Members of the Leglslatuure from tVhlttcmlen county met at the capltol this afternoon and organized, Senator B. C. .Mower was elected chairman and Senator I.'. W. Henry was chosen secretary. A legislative comtr.ltteo was decided upon consisting of E. It. Converse of Char lotte, chairman, Senator P. 13. Blgwood and Dr. C. M. Ferrin of Kssex. It waa proposed thnt the organization meet weekly. At a meeting of the Addison county legislators Judge jnhn K. Weeks of Mld dlnbury was elected chulrman nnd Sena tor R. AV. McCueii secretary. It Is understood tliat a tax Mil has al ready been placed with the rervtston committee. This bill is said to be tho precise measure that was fouajht over two years ago. From the neceeaarlly superficial estimate gained by listening; to the talk of members In lobbies and corridors. It woidd appear that many of the members aro not yet ready for tax legislation. The objects to be striven for aro reasonably clear and Keneraily agreed upon. But there seems to be ground for considerable honest and rea sonable differences of opinion aa tto the best way of accomplishing the dertred ends. Many members beem of tho opin ion that this mntter Is so Important and complicated that It should bo approach ed deliberately. OFFICIAL RMORD OF DAT SENATE MORNING.

Roel of Brattleboro De clares Wilson Is Too Small Calibre for President. Brattluboio, Oct. 10. The republican managers In this town are smiling to-day when told that no less a prominent demo crat than Austin F. Roel, recent democratic nominee for State senator from this county, Is supporting Tuft. For ninny years Mr. Roel has been connected with the big Brattleboro retreat farm and for the past two years has been superintendent. He is known throughout this county as one of the most conserva tive democrats and tho announcement that he believes President Taft Is far superior to Governor Wilson, the candi date for president of his own party, Is bound to have a material effect on tho democratic vote In Windham county In November. In view of the part taken by Mr. Roel in the State councils of tho Democratic party, his attitude at this time la Indicative of a change of heart by the old guard who have engineered the destinies of Vermont democracy for over 25 years. Mr. Roel says: "While I am a democrat, 1 make no secret of saying that I believe William H. Taft Is the 'best man of the three candidates for president. I hope the Republican party managers, will put the best man they have on tho stump for President Taft. Ho is an honest man. I don't believe any thing In this talk that the election of Taft will make tho cost of living higher. Wilson Is too small cnllbro for presi dent. Ho may be scholarly, but ho la not the best man for the Job. Taft may not be a politician, but to my mind he Is tho best man In the crowd and I hope he will win. I did my share of cheering for him when he was In Brattleboro Mon day." STATE DOCTORS' MEETING. Secretary Itrporta Members Dropping Oat of Vermont Organisation. Montpeller. Oct. 10.

SHERMAN LAW TREBLES IT Vermont Judge in Charge to Jury Points Out Plot Must Be Proved in Other States, Hartford, Conn., Oct. 11. A verdict for JM,) and costs wns awarded for the plaintiffs, D. E. Loewe ft Co. of Danbury, against members of tho United Hatters' Union of North America In tho United States district court to-night. Under thn Sherman antl-truet law, this will bt trebled, making thn total amount 1240,000. It took the Jury four hours to reach the decision, most of the time being spent In examining the expense account of th plaintiffs. The verdict Is for th full amount nskod for by the plaintiffs. Th present trial began August 24. This already famous case has been be fore the court for nine years, during which time It has gono to the United States court of nppeals twice and nnci to the United States Supreme Court. In tho first Jury trial three years ago, thq award for tho plaintiff was 22rt,o00. Steps wero begun to-night by tha de fense to appeal the case again. Suit was first brought In 1P02 against 340 members of the United Hatters of North America residing In this State, and was based upon tha allegation that a conspiracy existed to injure the business of the plaintiff who la a soft hat manufacturer, be cause he declined to unionize his' fac tory. Durlne; both trials evidence was presented aiming to show that curtain labor unions had Instituted a boycott against the plaintiffs' business. Soon after the suit was brought th American Federation of Labor decid ed to stand behind the defendants anrt to reimburse them against any loss. The Anti-Boycott society of Amerlct was behind the plaintiffs, so the liti gation developed Into a legal baltln between these two bodies. During the recent trial, I'Maldent Samuel Gompers of the Federation of Labor, John Mitchell, Frank Morrison and other noted labor leaders were called as witnesses by the defense. They all testified that no boycott had been declared against tho plaintiffs' products. Tn his chargn of the jury this after noon. Judge James L. Martin of Vei- mont fcald that the action was based on the anti-trust law or Sherman law, ex tracts from which he read. He pointed out tli.it it was tho allegation relating to Interference with tho plaintiff's in terstate trade and commerce rights that gave the federal court jurisdiction. 119 said: "Many of these defendants have goii upon the stand and testified that they hail no knowledge that the officers an agents of tho labor union fo which they belonged had been, or were to becomi membera of a conspiracy to Interfere with the Interstate trade and commerce of the plaintiffs. That these unions, local, State and natlonul, whatever you may call them, are voluntary associa tions Is not denied; that the authority for whatever the officers or agents may do Is vested In the individual members thereof, Is also undisputed. "The minutes, resolutions,, roports, proclamations and printed discussions which the oflleers and agents of the as sociation have publicly proclaimed and circulated among the membership, are all matters to be considered by you In passing upon the question as to whether or not the boycotting of the plaintiff's trade in other States than Connecticut was approved or warranted by tha Indi vidual members of the association." The Judge told the jury that If It i found the plot was to boyoott th plain tiffs' trade with parties In other Statea j In order to unionize their factory and such , boycotting was In fact resorted to, then the plaintiffs are entitled to recover all j such damages as they suffered by the ex- 1 ecutlon of that plot.
