Some,' havo given of their resources: others have porformcd sorvice) In various ways. It falls to tow men In the history of the city to devote them selves to a community In so many ways as did tho Hon. William .T. Van Patton, whom we now all mourn. Ho gave not only financial support for various worthy projents and InBtltutlonn and manifold service, hut also unceasing thought for our progress and welfare and uplift com bined with sympathetic and efficient co operation. I It Is difficult for the presont generation to plcturo Burlington without a building owned by tho Young Men's Christian as sociation. Tho present substantial Y. M. C. A. building owea Its existence to Mr. Van l'attcn. Ho was a pioneer tn the movement for a home for this worthy organization, and ho not only helped to organize tho project but ho also under wrote Its flnancleH to a degree that en sured tho erection of tho edifice. From that time to this ha has boon recognized' ns a dominating Bplrit In Y. M. C. A. work, not only In Burlington, but also In the State as a whole. Another Institution In which he had an abiding Interest and which he was ever seeking to servo In various ways Is tho Carnogle-FIetcher library, with which ho was long connected In an official capacity. In this work as well ns In his sorvice for tho local and Stato Y. M. C. A., he waa constantly brought Into-closo association with youth, and 'led to think of their wel fare. Ho was eminently fitted for service In both directions by his broad and gen erous sympathies and quick Impulses to ward every worthy cause. Long before most people had begun to think of organized charity In this region, Mr. Van Patten had conceived of the Idea of putting tho relief of suffering and want on a thoroughly practical basis that should afford relief without at the same tlmo Incurring tho risk of the pauperization of tho recipients of charity. Ho was large ly Instrumental In perfecting the organ ization and outlining the work of tho Howard Belief society, whose building has long adorned tho northeast corner of Pearl and Clarke streets. That this was pioneer work Is shown by tho fact that when the vencrablo and lamented Bev. Edward E. Hale was Invited to come from Boston to lend the benefit of his long experience In the "Lend A Hand" work In this city, he said ho was gratified to discover that Burlington had progressed so far in the putting of organized charity on a practical basis, that he could only admire and commend Instead of suggest ing. As president and long time director of the Mary Fletcher hospital, Mr. Van Pat ten gave of hlmeelf ungrudgingly, and, as was the case with so much of his work for his fellow beings, wholly without recom pense. It was a labor of love. In this serv ice he wns constantly seeking to combine the practical and the ideal. Ho realized that sympathy and good cheer are Im portant factors in healing and health restoration, and many a patient could testify to his unobtrusive attentions and floral messengers of sweetness and hope that are so appreciated by the Invalid. Mr. Van Patten'sN sympathies were so broad that no local barrier could hedge In his activities for humanity. It was a natural step for him from thought for the welfare of tho boys of Burlington to so licitude for the fatherless and the homo less boys of tho commonwealth as a wholo. His service for the latter In connection with Kum Hattln homoB In southern Ver mont, can not easily bo measured. In this work ns In 'So many other directions he was a pioneer, and In his death, the fath erlcss boys of Vermont have suffered an Jrrepnrnblo loss, Tho comprehensive view of conditions which Mr. Van Patton thus gained In the State at large an well ns In Burlington and vicinity found a natural frultago In his splendid service in organizing tho Vermont conference of social work and In tho lator project of establishing the Slate Board of Charities and Probation. Whether an Stato senator and president of tho Senate, advocating broad measures for the commonwealth, or as mayor of Burlington or as commissioner or trusteo In various departments, championing pub lic development llko moro parks or a paid fire department an a substitute for the old volunteer department or as seeking community uplift, ho was ever tho Ideal citizen, tho gentleman of tho old school and the Christian worker combined. Whether In official position or In private life, ho was unt!rlig In his public service. It would be difficult to mention any public Improvement within tho momory of tho present generation In Burlington lii which he did not have a helpful sliaro, If Indeed, ho did not take the Initiative. It will be rccallo that at tho outset there was not n little opposition to the erection of tho Edmunds high school on account of cost. Mr. Van Patten was so Intcnsoly Interested in tho project to provide-Bun PUZZLING PRESIDENTIAL QUESTION IN NEW ENGLAND The "New England candidate" from the time of Blaine and Reed down to Weeks and Coolidge has had to contend with tho spirit of New England independence as well as the. disposition on the part of the rest of the country to emphasize geographical location. Senator George F. Edmunds of Vermont was among these who did not take kindly "to the Plumed Knight from Maine in 1884, although he supported Blaine in a way after the latter was nominated. Vermont in 189G gave its delega tion to the. national convention to McKinley rather than Reed, while in 1916 it clung to Hughes in preference to Weeks. The Gveen Mountain State is now inclined to stand by Governor Coolldge of Massachusetts as a loyal son of Ver mont. Our people as a wholo would undoubtedly rejoice to see him the New England candidate. In this juncture we are faced by the fact that the Bay Slate seems now as in 1910 to be experiencing pronounced difficulty in getting together with reference to their presidential preferences; When the candidacy of Governor Coolidge started spontaneously as a result of his splendid exhibition of back bone in connection with theproblems involved in the strike of the Boston police, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge announced that he would be a candidate for delegate at large to the republican national convention tor trie purpo'se ol presenting the gov ernor's name tor nomination for the presidency. According to the Washington correspondent of the Bos ton Herald the withdrawal of Governor Coolidge as an active candidate for the support of tho Massachusetts delegation for the sake of producing harmony in the Bay State and the clos ing of his headquarters in the national capital has put Senator Lodge in a dilemma. The correspondent says. "Is Governor Coolidge definitely out of the presidential contest or does he still harbor some modest 'dark horse' aspirations? Senator Henry Cabotx Lodge would like an authoritative answer to this auestion." , Our readers will readily understand why as the time ap proaches for filing as a candidate Senator Lodge is at a loss to know what his course should be. If Governor Coolidge is in the contest Senator Lodge would file as a candidate pledged to him. If the Governor is out of it the Senator says he would file as an unpledged candidate. The correspondent continues: "The Governor's state ment, together with the abandonment of the Coolidge head quarters here, would justify the conclusion that the Bay State executive has withdrawn from the contest. Yet in political circles there is a persistent 'underground' that Governor Coolidge is still in a receptive frame of mind and that if the right circumstances developed he would not be averse to re-entering his name in the lists. "For example, it is pointed out the Governor's only prac tical chance of nomination, and it is conceded he would not enter the fight for a mere complimentary vote, would come in the event of a convention deadlock. If this contingency arose Coolidge as a man who had been favorably mentioned but who had withdrawn to prevent a contest in his own State might 'oom big as a compromise candidate. "Senator -Lodge is a bit scrupulous about keeping political promises. If he should announce himself as an unpledged candidate while there is still doubt about the Coolidge with drawal, it would appear as if he were abandoning the gov ernor, a situation he does not pronose to nermit. Consequent ly, he awaits a finaHvord from the Governor before filing his nomination papers. "Should Governor Coolidge release Senator Lodge from the arrangement which brought the latter into the delegate contest, Senator Lodge will run as an unpledged candidate independently of any group. While it is an open secret that with Governor Coolidge definitely out of the running the senator looks with lavor on the candidacy of General Wood, he will not align himself formally with the Wood movement in Massachusetts. To do so would bring him into political company which is not altogether congenial." We can readily see how Senator Lodge cannot afford to associate himself with any of the political booms, other than that of the Bay State executive, because of the delicacy of his negotiations in maintaining some semblance of party solidarity on the treaty question in the Senate. Another reason he does not propose to run as a member of a group, even though the group be unpledged, is his unwillingness to serve as a vehicle for other candidacies. With his public career coming to a close, the Senator is said to believe he has earned the right to play a lone hand in this contest free from the complication which may attend some of the other candidates. That at least is his view now. Meanwhile Senator Moses of New Hampshire announces additional imnetus to the Wood movement in New England in the shape of reports that F. W. Estabrook, national com mitteeman from New Hampshire and Jesse M. Barton, an other candidate for delegate-at-large, had .abandoned their plan to run as unpledged candidates and had filed as pledged to General Wood. As a consequence of this Senator Moses is confident that all New Hampshire's eight delegates will go to Chicago instructed for Wood. At the present time General Wood seems to be profiting from uncertainty regarding Governor Coolidge's candidacy. How the rejection of general military training as a policy for adoption at this particular time will affect General Wood's chances remains to be seen. His name has been as sociated with that policy to a greater or less degree, and on general principles one would expect him to suffer to a certain extent from the latest developments in that connection. It is to be noted in this connection that according to 'advicos from Washington the candidacy of Senator Harding of Ohio has also entered a new phase during the past few dayfi, The original intention of Mr. Harding's friends was not to campaign for delegates in any State outside of Ohio. Now, however, the Harding candidacy has become more pre tentious. A nation-wide organization is being brought to gether and in a few days will be announced. Aggressive ef forts are already being made to secure the delegation from Indiana, and similar efforts will shortly be made throughout the country generally. On the democratic side the effort of party leaders to head off Bryan is now coming into sharp and open conflict with those who are determined to make Mr. Bryan a figure in the convention. The Democratic party organizations, as organi zations, in tho various States, are generally opposed to Bryan. But the rank and file of the party in many of the same States are in favor of Bryan. In order to forestall the growth of Bryan sentiment and to head off any attempt to give formal endorse ment to him, the party leaders have been following a policy of calling their State conventions and State committee meet ings earlier than they anticipated. Significantly enough Senator Walsh of Massachusetts en dorses the position of Senator Lodge relative to tne treaty of poaco and Col, William A. Gaston, one of the democratic wheel homes in the Bay State, has come out in a statement in praise of Senators Lodgo and Walsh for safeguarding our national lntoroflts. This announcement is said to ensure Colonel Gas ton a plnco on tho Bay State's "big four" in the democratic national convention in San Francisco. Meanwhile so excellent a republican authority as former President Taft has. warned his party that if the democrats nominate Hoover on a platform favoring a League of Nations with resonnble restrictions the democratic candidate might become a hiffhly formidable antagonist. If Hoover is inclined to bo "wot" to oven a mild degree, some of his people claim it would Htrongthen him with the host of people who favor beer and light wines. All things considered the presidential situa tion is puzzling not only in New England but also throughout the United States. roads, tolford and macadam, nnd who formulatod tho plans under which Bur lington expended tho proceeds of Its first bond Issuo for iermnnent roads. One of tho splendid projects for a greater and moro beautiful Burlington which Mr. Van Patton long ngo advocated, but did not live to soo materialize was a boule vard along tho lake shore north of Bur lington. Ho lamented Burlington's lack of a fine drlvo along tho shoro of Lako Chomptaln for our visitors as woll us ourselves, He conducted a parly of other enthusiasts along what could be tho routo of such a driveway pointing out Its beauties and showing Its advantages. It would bo a fitting nnd handsomo tribute. If Burlington should somo day construct as a memorial tho Van Patten houlovard. Mr. Van Patten's love of chlldron was tho mainspring of still other praise worthy projects than those hitherto enu merated. Ho was a thorough bellover In parks for the bonoflt of all concerned ns well as playgrounds for the special ben efit of tho little ones. In providing Rthan Allen park for this community, It was his particular pleasure that hero would bo a place whora tho children could havo their swings and slides and other meana of Joyous, health-glvlng cxorclso tn tho open air. After he had seen Ethan Allen Park materialize his thought turned again to tho lako ho loved, as affording an oppor tunity for still another park by the side of tho water. Ho long ndvocatod tho pur chase by tho city of tho entire John A. Arthur farm, where a large park could bo developed with a bathing beach as one of Its attractive features. This project was later consummated In part, although the city did not buy that portion of the farm which Mr. Van Patten believed should bo made an addition to Lake View cem etery. Other Instances of Mr. Von Pat ten's public spirit and progressive nature could be given, but these will readily suggest themselves to different residents of Burlington. Tho part which Mr. Van Patten took In connection with the Indus trial development of Burlington la worthy of special mphnsls. His ac tivity In the building up of tho enormous business of tho Wells & Richardson com pany has already been montloned. He waa one of the prime movers In establishing In Burlington the Queen City Cotton com pany In which ho was largely Interested. Later on ho developed the Champ'.aln Bhnps at the corner of Main and Battery streots, and many a handsomo natural finish Interior In Burlington buildings testifies to the artistic taBto as well as fine workmanship done under his supervision. Tho largo plant established In this city for the Malted Cereal company Is another monument to his progressive spirit aa well as his vision. It Is significant In this connection that bucccss crowned his ef forts In every direction where he could work out his own Ideas unhampered. It thus becomes evident. that his versatility and good Judgment In business were as pronounced as his broad and genorous sympathies were all-embracing In con nection with his manifold benefactions. It Is to he noted that Mr. Van Patten's chlof concern was for tho higher and tho finer things of life. His attractive qual ities made him not only respected, but also loved by all. It thus becomes evident that It was not what Mr. Van Patten ac cumulated hut what he did and what he gavo of himself for the city of his lovo and tho Stato of which ho was proud and for humanity ns a whole, that really counts In tho final analysis. His love of the beautiful led him constantly to seek to cultivate the aesthetic sense In others, as well as to satisfy love of tho beautiful. Ho was over making parks and email plots about public buildings to blossom with sweet flowers. He sought to carry beauty and Joy Into tho lives of all our people. In his death we have lost our most public spirited citizen, and our chil dren, their most loving public benefactor. Concord, N. H tells of trains actually freezing to the rails In that region. It waa Mark Twain who told about his shad ow freezing to the deck of a steamship In the Arctic regions. Possibly tho Granite State haa a budding Twain. It may reconcile somo of our readers to recent meteorological conditions to recall the tradition that hard frost and a heavy snowfall mean a generous harvest of maple sugar. Under these circumstances It Is to be hoped the destruction by flro of a mnple sugar Implement factory In Rutland will not Interfere with tho maple Industry In southern Vermont. If this Is the situation, Burlington may lend a hand to our nolghbors.

Mr. Van Patten was an apostlof good roads decades ago whon that movement was less generally advocated than now. He wns active In bringing to Burlington Professor Bacot, the engineer, who made a voluminous report, In favor of -what woro then regarded aa permanent stone Sheriff Allen's statement that prisoners In tho Chittenden county Jail earned JC3I.50 lust year, half of which went to the State and tho othor half to the prisoners. Is gratifying both aa history and prophecy We believe wholesome work for prisoners Is ono f the solutions of the question how to reform men nnd women, and especially men who will not work to support their famlllos. It is simply pauperization for the taxpayers to support the families of men who persist In idleness, Generous doses of work with Jail accompaniments will speedily cure this disease of the body social.

E MYSTERY ABOUT STATEMENT OF DOCTOR YOUNG It Is First Admission That President Wilson Had Suffer ed Impairment of His Left Leg and Arm Nature of the Communication Leaves Infer ence That Somebody In the Govt. Thought It Time Public Had Facts About Chief Ex ecutive's Illness and Told Dr. Young to Go Ahead fly DAVID liATVUENCM (Copyright, 1920, by Freo Press) Washington, Feb. 13. Something of a mystery envelopes tho Issuance' by Dr. Huch H. Young of Johns Hopkins Uni versity of a statement describing In do- i tall tho Illness of President Wilson and revealing particularly what tho White I IIouso has so long declined to admit, I namely that tho President ha suffered I from an Impairment of bla left leg and I arm. ( So far aa can be discovered neither j President Wilson nor Dr. Cary T. Gray son, U. S. N., his physician, wero con sulted concerning the statomont and there Is good reason to bellovo that its publication was hardly pleasing to them. On tho other hand, It Is thought Incon ceivable that a man of Dr. Young's posi tion would no far violate professional ethics as to authorise a rvwspapor Inter view revealing tho nature of tho Illness of ono of his patients without sanction. Tho plain Inforencc In that somebody In the government who has felt that tho Wlilte Uouso policy of concealing the facts of tho President's Illness was mis leading and unfair to tho public told Dr. Young to go ahead. It la not Important to know who tho person was but It Is a confession that the curiosity of the public to know tho truth about tho President's ailment at last reached a point whero the wishes of the President' own house hold to keep the matter a prlvato affair are to somo extent being set aside in the interest of tho public. The whole situation develops out of the conflict between the rights of the public and the rights of tlie President and his family to keep their privacy from being Invaded. Just whore does tho right of the public and tho right of a public ofll clal begin? There are thoso who defend vigorously tho White House policy of silence on the ground that while tho President was In the midst of the serious stage of his Illness and nobody could tell Just what developments might bring. It would havo been politically disastrous to hnnd over to Mr. Wilson's political op ponents a lovor with which to delay action on tho treaty by raising the question of the President's incapacity to dlschargo his public duties. Now that tho Presi dent has passed the crisis and is on the road to recovery. It Is Insisted that no harm can bo done by revealing In retrospect the facts of the case. On the other hnnd tho distinct loss to tho White House In the circumstances Is the Impression that It has given to so many persons that informal utterances on subjects of Interest to tho public may havo to tie taken with a grain of salt. There always arises a moment In every administration whon the newspaper corre spondents begin to lose faith In tho sincerity of public men who do not deal frankly. Usually when nn embarrassing question arises, officials have been known to mako a clean breast of a case and point out the reasons why secrecy H necessary. This whs particularly true during the war and ther are no cases of Importance on record wherein con fidence was violated. But In the matter of Mr. Wilson's Ill ness, the correspondents havo literally beon up a tree. Torn between a desire not to pry too closely the private nffalrs of the President and a consciousness at the same time that the public has a right to know whether Its chief executive can transact public business, the news papermen have consistently accepted statements made to them from au thoritative quarters as being frank and complete. Dr. Young's revelation gives the Impression that on more than one occasion the correspondents were deliber ately misled. This may not be Important from the viewpoint of officials for they frequently Imagine the public much loss Interested In events than are the Inquiring corre spondents. More than one request for In formation has been lightly dismissed as "Idle," curiosity. In this particular In stance, however, the policy of withholding the truth served only to Intensify the eagerness of the public to know the true state of Mr. Wilson's health. Demands for Information have come from news papers usually very friendly but these editorials have had little effect. Some body then hit upon the Idea of issuing an Inspired statement giving details. This appeared nearly a month ago In a Balti more newspaper but the name of tho Physician was not given. The story was not given wide circulation because of Its anonymity. Then tho same newspaper actuated no doubt by the desire to keep faith with its leaders, printed a second statement, this time by the authority of Dr. Hugh Young himself. Just how much the Whlto House played a part In this effort to set tho public straight cannot bo ascertained as vetT Certain!,. direct method would havo been to Issuo a statement to the Associated Press or the United Press or International News Service' which three sorvlcos reach all the newspapers of the country. But tho mystery deepens when It Is found that somo of tho tilings In Dr. Young's uttor ance are described as "minor Inac curacies," and while the substance of his dec aratlon appears to be admitted. It Is pointed out by othors who are In a position to know that Dr. Young wns not called In until tho trouble with the prostratlo gland developed. Tho, Inference is that he learned about tho case second hand from the other physicians who treated the Preldcnt's arm and leg. And still there Is no full and frank state ment of the President's condition Issued on the authority of the Whlto House. nAIlMOPfY THAT IS IIATIMONY (From tho Charleston News and Courier) "Wo heartily Indorso tho party leader ship of Woodrow Wilson and William Jennings Bryan." say the democrats of North Dakota, In a formal resolution Hero Is faith!
