On Us faco thnt looks llko commendable proposition. It Is. It would have been much more com mendable, however. If this wholesale dis charge of federal employes to occur near ly two years after the real ending of the war, were not typical of much other fed eral oxtravaganro. The House has now taken the bovine by the horns, and begun the unscrambling process. As a result of the war the number of federal employes In the capital city was Increased In 1919 from 37,000 to 117,000. Since the armistice was signed the total force was reduced only to 102,000. Frank W. Mondell, the republican floor leader In the House, declares that "Wo must reduce the estimates by close to $1,000,000,000 and 1 am quite certain wo shall. "Wo can not increase our floating debt without Inviting disaster, we cannot Issue bonds for Investment purposes without ffreatly reducing tho present value of out standing government securities and threat ening the stability of our specie basis, and wo cannot issue bonds in small de nominations, which would become a part of the circulation of the country, without Inviting all of the disasters enumerated ana the additional calamity of tremend ously increasing tho cost of living through tho expansion of the circulating medium. Economy to tho limit and no new ob ligations unless they are accompanied with provisions to raise the sum required by taxation, Is the only sound basis of action." This action will rob the Democratic par ty of not a little thunder that might oth erwise have been discharged at the ripe moment. VERMONT PARTLY RESPONSIHI.P. Vermont Is recognized as a typical re publican State, having been alone with T'tah In sticking to the colors In 1912. when all the rest of the States went either for Woodrow Wilson or Theodore Itoose velt on the Progressive party's ticket. This year Vermont is charged with being one of the four republican States that I have refused to ratify the amendment to the federal constitution providing for . political Justice for women. Republicans In the country as a whole are therefore ' to be held responsible for this failure President Wilson on the other hand has ' been wiring democratic States to help se- euro ratification of the woman suffrage amendment, Consequently a host of wom en in States where they can vote will vote the democratic ticket this year to rebuke the Republican party for Its sins of omts- , slon. That Is an epitome of the situation. ' Now let us glance at some of the details. A despatch from Washington says that the National Woman's party has issued a statement declaring the Republican party must stand prepared to accept the responsibility In the event that nation wide suffrage was withheld. "If the West Virginia Legislature falls to ratify tho suffrage amendment thn Republican party will be responsible, linco tho majority of that Legislature Is i e. publican," the statement said, "If West Virginia defeats ratification three more States must be secured. Washington has railed a special session for March 22, which will give tho thirty-fourth State. The laFt two must be secured from States In which both governors and Legislatures arc strongly republican, Delaware, Vcr-j mont and Connecticut. "So far the governors of these three republican States have refused to call special sessions. If they continue to re fuse, ratification may bn delayed until loo Into for women to voto In the fall clec tlonB, If women nro denied the right to voto for the next president nnd Congress tho Republican party must bear the full responsibility. "Trirty-threo States hove already rat. Iflod tho suffrage amendment. Thirty-six nro necessary for final victory." Governor Townscnd of Delaware hoa so far refused to call a special session of tho Legislature to act on the woman's suf frage amendment, He has told suffra gists that ho Is In favor of votes for women, but Is not sure of votes enough In tho Legislature to ratify the amend ment, and until ho is suro will not rail a spocial session. The suffragists are still circulating petitions asking for a special session and havo offered to raiso monoy to pay tho expense. Governor Holcomb of Connecticut seems parcntly blocked tho sitffrogo for the I presidential election. "Thn forlorn hope of thn suffragists lies In North Carolina and Tennessee, where efforts are still being mode to I have special sessions called, but the hopo Us Indeed small. All the Southern States , which hnvcThlrcaily voted, except Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, have rejected (tho amendment,' nml while Tennessee may jovcntiially range herself with thn affirm i alive three rather thnn with Virginia and 'South Carolina, her acceptance will hard ily ronio In time for this election, If It comes nt all, "Thn effect of the suffrage 'hold up' on 'the presidential election Is likely to if'lllli of Wt-inmil. whlpli action in me states which nircntiy nnvothls city yesterday. woman suffrage In presidential elections namely, New York, Illinois, Michigan, California, Wyoming, Rhode Island, Colo rado, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Kansas, Arizona, Oregon, Montana, Nevada, South Dikota and Nebraska." The voters of Vermont can thus sen more than one reason why the State Leg islature is not called together to help ox tend political justice to the women of the entire nation. THE SAXE MEMORIAL VERMONT AND THE MOVE TO LIBERALIZE PROHIBITION Connecticut, and of Governor Clement of Vermont to rnll speelnl sessions has np me Vermont ponncai Kaleidoscope is given a new turn this week. A new combination of fumiliar colors appears. Four candidates for governor to take the place of the three of last week, amid entirely new surroundings. Frank W. Agan, tho well-known woolen manufacturer of Ludlow, has added his hat to those already in the ring. The political geography of the new situation first com mands attention. James Hartness, whose candidacy had been previously announced, hails from Springfield. Consequently, the entrance of Agan into the race gives Windsor county two gubernatorial candidates. It follows that the candidacy of Agan at first sight would appear to draw most from Hartness. As a matter of fact, however, lines of cleaveage on various issues completely overshadow the political geography of the situation. Whilc Hartness and 'Emery were strong with the temperance clement, so-called, Mr. Babbitt, who comes out this morning in favor of tho softening of the Volstead act, had a considerable strength with the "wet" element, through association in various organizations. Ordinarily the appearance of Mr. Agan as a candidate for governor would mean simply the addition of one more hat to the list already crowding each other in the ring. Under all the circumstances, however, Mr. Agan's candidacy takes on nation-wide interest. He has not announced his platform, but it seems safe to say that ho will represent the element that would liberalize national prohibition. If this is the case, then it follows that Agan and Babbitt will now divide the "wet" vote. In the first place the circumstances' attending the advent 4 of Agan as a candidate warrant the classification in vhirh we have placed him. Before he went to California some weoXs ago, he had looked over the gubernatorial field and notified his friends that he would not be a candidate for governor. Alter so many Vermont towns voted m favor of license in the town meetings last week; the wires from Vermont to the Golden State at once became hot with messages urging Agan to reconsider his determination, and to consent to be come a candidate for governor. On Saturday Editor J. W. Sault of the Vermont Tribune, Agan's home paper, telephoned the editor of the Free Press that a telegram had just been received from Agan at Los Angeles saying he had decided to be a candidate for governor, but giving no details as to plat form. We believe most students of politics under the circum stances would agree that the "wet" developments in Vermont had encouraged Mr. Agan to become a candidate for governor at this time. In the second place, it is to be recalled in this connection that Mr. Agan was the running mate of the Hon. Percival W. Clement in the campaign of 1902 in which the democrats joined with "wet" republicans in overthrowing the fifty-year-old State prohibition law. The combination was not strong enough to secure control of the governorship at that time, but the old-time republican majorities were wiped out so that the election was thrown into the Legislature, with the elec tion of Gen. John G. McCullough for governor as the result. Developments under the surface have indicated to us that the ties of sympathy between the Clement following and the Agan supporters are still strong. Indeed, in some in stances they might be one and the same. We believe these and other bits of "circumstancial evidence" at hand wholly warrant the supposition that Vermont has a candidate repre senting the movement for a liberal interpretation of national prohibition. ' The next question is whether the Vermont democrats will seize the opportunity to make the history of 1902 repeat itself in 1920. Ordinarily, we would promptly answer this query in the affirmative. The overshadowing fact now in trudes that this is a presidential year, and Vermont demo crats who hope to share in presidential pap must "vote straight." Right here we happen to have discovered that many democrats were visibly disturbed, even to the point of vocaliza tion, by the proposition to hold a conclave in Burlington for the purpose of launching a boom for Attorney-General Mit chell Palmer for the presidency. Not all democrats know that Palmer is a Quaker and a temperance man, but evidently some of the "wet" faithful knew and protested accordingly. ' Significance is to be found in one of the charges made by the protesting democrats. Attention was called to the fact that the Burlington gathering was constituted largely of democratic postmasters and other federal officeholders, whereas President Cleveland ruled out such participation as "offensive partisanship." A prominent democrat, who was present, explains that the Vermont democrats were simply invited to be present without knowing why. -No action was taken in behalf of any candidate. Un'der the circumstances developments in this whole con nection would indicate a vigorous fight among the Vermont democrats, not only over the question whether to join with "wet" republicans in smashing the Republican party in Ver mont, but also over the national ticket and platform. Every intelligent man realizes that if the democrats as a party were to join with republicans who desire the liberaliz ing of national prohibition in support of Agan this year, they might win in the election, vith the remaining, republicans divided between Hartness, Babbitt and Emery. Everybody can realize what a tremendous temptation this is. Moreover, not all democrats are Wilsonized to be able to resist this temptation. On the other hand, not all republicans have been Clementized to a degree that will make them overlook the present Vermont administration. If it is true, as a republican said, that the nomination of Hoover would mean that the democrats had a "wet" candi date, we can readily understand how Vermont democrats might see a chance to win the presidency as well as the gov ernorship of Vermont by "fusion." Evidently Hoover's "democracy" is not so orthodox or irreconcilable as to cause him to object to a joint movement of this kind to capture republican Vermont. If Vermont is plunged into a fight over the liberalizing of national prohibition, a moment's thought will show that it probably will go much farther than the governorship and State offices. It is Congress that has to do with the legislat ing under national prohibition. Perforce the liberalizing of national prohibition would call before anything else for the election of United States senators and members of Congress. If the democrats and liberalizing republicans have visions of capturing the governorship, they probably, also hope to capture the United States senatorship and two congress men in Vermont. Without regard to the fact we have hoped the situation in Vermont might be otherwise this year, we can see that our State probably is destined to experience one of the most revo lution campaigns in its history, with both the democratic and republican regular organizations shaken to their very founda tions under the stress of national politics.

(From the Now York World) New York, both city and State, has an Interest In the completion of a monument near his birthplace at Hlghgate, Vt Just south of tho Canadian line, to John God frey Saxe, the lightest-hearted poet of his day. The dedication of the memorial will take place next June. New York's Interest Is that the poot passed the most productive poriod of his career In this State. Ho was Ver mont's by the accident of birth, but be longed to the Empire State by virtue of his mature choice. Born at Hlghgate, he was graduated from Mlddlehury Col lege, admitted to the bar at S' Albans, Vt after four years' study at Lockport, N. Y. ; was Attorney General of Vermont for a term and unsuccessful candidate for governor on the democratic ticket In 1S39 and ISfiO. I His literary bent overcoming his In I terest In the law, he came to New York city, tho lltorary enter of the country, aftrc his second rejection nt the polls, and until 1S7U gave himself to writing and lecturing. Then he became editor of the Albany Journal, a ost he held for many years. He died at Albany in 1SST Hail Saxe lived in tho present day he would undoubtedly have become column conductor for a dally newspaper and amassed great wealth. As It was. al though highly productive and with a graceful talent hardly equalled In his generation, he knew times when he wor rld about meeting his bills. To-day he Is remembered only by fragments, the best known of which perhaps Is: I do not like you, Dr. Fell; The reason why I cannot tell. And yet I know, and know full well. I do not like you, Dr. Fell. And here Is a stanza from "The Super fluous Man' which suggests the Dobson llke lightness of his touch: I long have been puzzled to guess, And so I have frequently said, What the reason could really be Thot I never have happened to wed; Hut now It Is perfctly clear 1 am under a natural ban The girls are already assigned Anil I'm a superfluous man. It was the last Legislature of Ver mont which decided to pay belated tri bute to this Green Mountain poet. A commission consisting of one representa tive each from the House and Senate and H. J. Chamberlain of Ottawa, represent ing relatives of Saxe, purchased a plot of ground at the Intersection of the high ways near the Saxe homestead In High gate and placed their a boulder from the shore of nearby Lake Champlaln. On this has been alllxed a bronze tablet, the Inscription on which reads: "The State of Vermont dedicated this memorial to John Godfrey Saxe, poet, lawyer and Journalist. A loyal and belov ed son of Vermont. Horn June 2, 1S1G. Died March 28, 1S.S7." Tho irnvemnlv tnnmlinru tt I'm 1 i.ln. lature and descendants of the noet will uttend the dedication In June, that month having been selected us ir.i'.st likely to I'lovlili, agreeable weather to be as obdurate as Governor Clement of Vermont In resisting appeals of tho women of the nation for the right to voto this year. In this connection tho Roston Transcript says: "With tho rejection of the suffrage amendment by the Wnst Virginia Senate, by a voto of 15 to 1.1 after tho House had ratified by a njojority of four and tho re fusal of tho governor of Vermont to call a special session of tho Legislature of that State, It becomes practically certain that the nineteenth amendment will not b ratified In tlmo for tho enfranchisement by federal enactment of women In tho States which have not already bestowed the suffrage upon them. "Thlrty-threo States havo now ratified and sovon havo definitely rejected.

In an Infcrvelw with a Free Press re- . porter Tuesday, Captain Stlcknoy out lined his plans for opening up Vermont to tho aerial world. In company with S. B. Osgood, Captain Stickney bos taken the agency for Vermont and New Hamp shire for tho Curtlss airplane. With sev eral of these planes, which will bo de livered about May 1, together with a largo amount of up-to-date equipment, Messrs. Stickney end Osgood will open a school to teach avIaUon. Tho location of this school will be at the Hartness landing field In Springfield, tho only up-to-date landing field In Vermont at the present time. This field was fitted up for this purpose last fall, when hang ars, a tank for high test gasoline and telephone service were placed on the field. , I At thle school, tho theory of aviation ' and actual flying will bo taught, combln- Ing the three months' course given by tho government during the war In the ground ; schools of aviation and on the flying Helds. The Curtlss dual-control planes will be used exclusively In the school, j and Captain Stickney will do most of the ' Instruction, taking the pupils In classes ' of ten, this being the maximum num- 1 bcr that can be accommodated under one Instructor. . Captain Stickney Is very well fitted, by his long experience In aviation and by his enviable war record, to take up this work, which Is pioneer work in Vermont. Ho started flying In this country In 1916 and went to France and entered the Lafayette Escadrllle several months be fore the United States came Into tho war. When America finally came In, Mr. Stick ney left the French army and accepted a lieutenancy In the American overseas air service. With that branch of the serv ice, he served until the end of the war, being promoted to the rank of captain shortly before the close of the contest. He was not attached to any particular unit but was with a group of planes which was shifted from place to place to take part In the big offensive, whether made by the Anfcrlcan, the British or the French. In this way, he took part In many of the major engagements. In connection with his aviation school, Captain Stickney plans to keep Vermont on the aerial map of the country by mak ing personal tours of the State during the coming summer, stopping for a few days or a week In the larger towns, where he will do exhibition flying and takejip parties, thus stimulating Interest In aviation. He also expects to do ex hibition flying at the fairs. Mr. Osgood, who Is to be associated With Captain Stickney in the school at Springfield, was In the automobile busi ness before the war. During the war, he was employed in testing out Liberty motors. He is an expert mechanic and his experience in this line will be Invaluable. When asked what was necessary to make Vormont nn aviation State, Captain Stickney answered, without hesitation, "high test gas and landing places." We must have landing places in the State before aviators from other States will consider coming In here, declared Mr. Stickney. Hying Is too hazardous for a pilot to start out Into territory which has no definite places to land, especially when other States are furnishing such places. Captain Stickney was connected for some tlmo with an aviation field In Albany, N. Y and he states that he had difficulties In getting tho aviators from that field to come over into Vermont be cause they said there were no facilities for landing here. At one time, when a flight was being made into Vermont, and the logical course would bnve been to have come across by woy of Bennington and up on the Vermont side, the trip was made up the New York side to Glens Falls and then across, because there is a good landing field at Glens Falls, and the pilots wanted to be within reach of this field. High tef-t gasoline has come to be necessary at any landing station, suld Captain f-'tickney, because It has come to be realized that this high grade sas Is the only gas which should be used In air planes. While tho ordinary gasoline will make the enrlnc go. It does not furnish the proptr power required for flying. An Insurance agent who deals In airplane in surance, said Cantnln Stickney, recently told him that nearly all of tho recent accidents to airplanes were In planes which were being driven with ordinary gab, which was not powerful enough to sustain the motor. Some avalatton insur ance companies,' It Is said, nre contemplat ing writing a clause Into their policies that high lest gas must bo used. Captain Stickney declared thnt flying In and about the Green Mountains Is as safe as anywhere n the country, and that It will, undoubtedly, come to bo common Jn tho near future. He said that a mall routn between Boston anil Montreal would Include Vermont, providing that thcro were enough landing, fields In the State so that the pilots could afford to travel over this section. U would be the shortest ami moKt feaslblo route. Landing fields should havo about a quarter of a mile of clearing for a ma chine to land and take off, said the captain. In sonin cases, where the country roundabout was clear of trees, tho actual landing Held might be smaller than this, but ordinarily this amount of spaco should bo allowod. u FIU3K 1'IUiSS WANT AUS l-A """- onn items i-noji KVKitvwinnir.
