West of New York city, a rep rrsentatlvo of tho liootiatd Wood League spoke briefly in behalf of General Leonard Wood as a presidential candidate on the republican ticket. Courtland Smith, speaking after the dinner In the evening, lilt hard at some of tho weale points of tho country newspa per. He declared that tho publishing of a newspaper Is purely a business proposi tion, but that It lias not heon considered ns such by the averago country newspa per publisher. "You have been rate cutters and cir culation liars from way back," declared Mr. Smith. The practice of cutting rates for foreign advertising and trying to make circulation figures much above what they really ure has put country Journalism In bad with the entire advertising country, according to Mr. Smith. There is a law, he (-aid, which requires papers to swear to their circulations, and ther Is another law passed about six years ago, which piohlblts the publishing of free leadeis, flthcr In connection with advertising or In expectation of it. The advertising agoncles know, said Mr. Smith, that the country newspaper Is tho best medium of advertising on earth, because It Is the only cash-In sales medium of the. country. The most Im portant thing of all In running foreign advertising In the country newspaper is to run the names of local dealers with the advertisements, Previous to Mr. Smith's talk, Frank 11. Howe of Bennington spoke briefly on "Political Advertising in Vermont " He aid that the newspaper Is o product of political advertising He emphasized the Importance of position in advertising. There was some discussion whether higher rates should be charged for politi cal than for commercial advertising. Willis C. Belknap of Hoeklngham, re tiring president, presided at all of the meetings of tho day. He opened the peaking after the dinner by Introducing President titty W Bailey of tho Cnlvei slty of Vermont, who, in a few words, welcomed the newspaper men to the uni versity Owing to the fact Hint several of the men who were scheduled to speak nt the afternoon session were not present, the progmm wns shortened omewhat, hut thn extra time was taken up with dts cusslone. L. P. Thayer of Morrlsvllle addressed the meeting on How to Handle Press Agents." W. H Cilpln of Bar ton spoke on "Dividing News from Ad vertising." Both of these talkn were in thn nature of leads for discussions, At four o'clock, the newspaper men adjourned to the gymnasium, where they heard a decidedly amusing lecture by ,1 L, Harbour of Boston, entltkd "Messed Be Humor." Just before they went to tho gymnasium the members assembled In front of Morrill hall and had their picture taken by representatives of the Cynic. Much credit for the success of this meeting Is due to Walter II Cioikett, editor of the university publications. In whose hands the arrangements for the meeting were placed. WANDERING WOMAN lira.

CAUCUS ENDS IN RED HOT DISPUTE Nomination of F. A. Deyette as Alderman from Second Ward Not Conceded by Supporters of E. A. Luck, Who Is Endors ed by Democrats Monday night afforded the laal opportunity to file nomination papers for the city election by means of a caucus. and five caucuaos were held over the city. Thn on ly contest In the series took place In the second watd. which lias long since lakon tho laurels from the third ns a hilttla I ground, In this ward F. A. Deyette and 1 Kiigcne A, Luck were the opposing can Idldiiles for tho republican nomination for liitdorman and the caucus terminated In I a red hot dispute as to who won, Aa the upshoot of the affair, nomination papers wore filed by the friends of both on In dependent tickets and protests were filed against the returns, certified by the of ficials of the caucus, nominating Deyette. In Ihe other wards John W. O'Nell, Dr J. K. I.aflocquo and K, O. Mltlguy wcte nominated as uldermntilc candidates. The fight In the second wnrd was an ticipated and for that reason a rheck list was used. No one. anticipated the elab orateness of the production, however. When tho ballot boxes were opened at four o'clock In the afternoon, the voter began to appear and a large number of women voted during the afternoon. It ba enme apparent al once that party tines I ncir UUIHriiiirii mm UK iiimii.t .tr.iiwi.iMin as rnpuiiiicans presented tnemseivea at the polling plate. This started up both sides lo fresh endeavors and the total vote was larger than al most elections. (Jcoige D. Jarvls was the presiding of ficer and George II. Mylkes Ihe secretary. 1 When tho votes were counted at olght ; o'clock, It was found by the offlcera that Deyette bad received 22i and T.llck 222. This raised a storm of protest from Luck's siipporleis. It was found to Hie satisfac tion of Ihe Luck neonle that more votes wore tast than names were checked. 1 They claimed that some of tho Deyette 'ballots were folded togethor, Indicating that sonic persons hail voted for Deyette more lhan once. They claimed that tho liouect vole stood in favor of Lurk by 222 lo 2II! The Deyette. men also had their story to tell and pointed to the fait that Samuel Miller, a Luck man, was at the ballot box The Deyette men claimed that ttiey did their best to be fair and were satisfied that their candidate was legally nominated. When It came lime lo adjourn, the Luck people voted against the adjournment, bill nearly everybody left the loom and the officla's of the ratlins n;so went out. Th, papers nominating the ward ticket were filed In the city clerk's office, and the pusldlng officer and the secretary took their oath that they were cnriecl. Then the ptotests began to appear. One Ipiolest was filed against Ihe nomination of Deyette on the grounds thai the caucus .had not been adjourned and that nomlnj- ilon papers could nol be filed until after the aillmirtirnenl of a caucus. Xollque Gravel and Samuel Miller, tel. iers at the caucus, filed n protest against ihe nomination of Deyette and gave four reasons as follows. First, that nior bal lots were cast than names weie checked on the .1st; second, because people were allowed to vole, whose names wore nol on the list: thltd, a number of ballots were doubled together, thus allowing mote than one vote lo be cast by a person; fourth, because the vole of .Miss Martha 'A. Harrington, whose name was not on I the list and who showed no tnx receipt, was allowed. ' Then Doyette's friends filed nomination 'papers to protect their man's candidacy ,ln case .egal action was taken, and named I him on an independent republican ticket. jLuck'h friends did tlie same thing and nominated him on a citizen' ticket. Some 'democrats, who remained at the place of their caucus, then endorsed the candidacy 'of Luck. ' The official letuins from the ward two inpublicnii caucus give the following as 1 candidate." . Alderman, F A. Deyette: .ward clerk. J. K. Bradley; Inspectors of jeleclloii. Unman Crooker. George II. Ba con and Alphonse II. Diihainol. Th pre ' aiding officer was (leorge D.
