Governor Coolidge was married in 1S06
to Miss (lri.fi A. Goodhue of Rurllngton.
I Vt.. whom he met at Northampton, where
she to a school teacher. Their two
children are both boyfi, John and Calvin,
Jr When he r. ir "hosen Goernor he did
not abandon modest residence in half
of a double house in Northampton, but
took up his quarters in a single room in
a small Boston hotel in the business dis
trict, returning the hundred-odd miles
to his home for the week-ends.
He has never owned an automobile, al
though most of his friends In the city
do. He owns no real estate, and has
occupied the same law office ever since
he opened It after being admitted to the
bar and nutting the lirm of Hammond
& Field. He is as quiet and friendly as
ever, as unobstrusive in his habits as
when he moved to Northampton, and
there is a little framed legend over the.
cheerful open fireplace, in the parlor of
his homo which mav or may not have a
bearing on his character. It reads:
"A wise old owl lived in an oak,
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke tluj more he heard.
Why can't wo he like that old bird?"

MENTIONED FOR PRESIDENT
Hie vietorv-as a candidate for Governor
of Massachusetts representing the forces
of law and order at once placed his nnmo
among Uioso of presidential possibility.
From the time that the people of Massa
chusetts decided to keep him in otllco
there was little doubt that he would be
asked to represent tho people of the
country In a national capacity.
The Coolidge boom fr President was
launched on November 22 last by the
Republican club of Massachusetts on the
pround that his stand "In crushing tho
fortes of disorder and disruption made

were discussed at this conference, and to
the views of nil the Governor listened at
tentively. Then he arose from his seat
suddenly and said to those present:
"Gentlemen, I (hank you. I see my way
clearly. 1 am going to net."
Without any further fxplnnatlon from
the Governor thr conference came to an
abrupt end. Suhseqnently In his first
executive order he directed the police
commissioner i" proceed with the per
formance of lm duty, a power which that
otlicial was denTPM by the action of the
mayor of Ra-ton. The Governor then
said that he would uphold the police com
missioner, anil he did.
After he had thus irstored the con
troversy to Its fundamental status he
called on the army and navy depart
ments at Washington to he leady to
co-operate with him to the extent of send
ing such forces as might be necessary.
iHe then wailed for the next move of tlie

him along lines suggnsted bv Samuel

commissioner as the legal and respon
sible head of the Boston polhc depart

Governor saw to ir that the commls

to replace the striking members of the

was blmply a matter of time.

St. Albans. June 15. Shortly before
closing hours last night at the Hub
department store, Harold Cohen, pro
prietor, became suspicious of a check
which had been taken at tho store
earlier in the evening. He got In com
munication with P. C. Warner, cashier
at the Welden National Rank, and
upon cxnmnatlon Mr. Warner could
find 110 deposit under the name of A.
R. Walter, signer of the bogus check.
Tho check was dated June It an J was
made out to Harold Cohen for the
sum of $:0.
Sheriff George P. Catlin was im
mediately notified and after a bit of
nulck "slouthlnc" it was discovered
that a man answering the description
of the signer of the check had lfft
this city on train o. IS at s;33 standard
time. Officials down the line were
notified and the man was taken from
the train at South Royalton.
Sheriff 'Catlin wont to South Royal
ton to-day anl brought Walter or
Walker, back and lodged him in the
Franklin county jail to await hearing.
According to street gossip there have
heen three men passing worthless
checks in this section thn past few
Walker, whose 'home Is In South Rur
llngton (or Walter, as his right name is
said to be) came to St. Albans about six
weeks ago and has been securing sub
scriptions to the Extension Weekly, a
Catholic paper. Walker told Mr. Cohen,
It Is salil, that he was a nephew of
Frank Shcehan of this city and Mr.
Cohen cashed the check. After his de
parture, Mr. Cohen went to Mr. Sheehan's
strfre on Main street and asked him if
the cheek of his nephew was all right.
Mr. Shcehan Informed him he did not
know anyone of that name.
Another incident in which Walker lately
figured was brought to light to-day. It is
said that a fe days ago Walker cashed
a check for $f,l at the store of C. H.
Trudeau on Lake street, which was drawn
on Proctor & Gamble Co. of Boston,
wholesale soap dealers. The check, It Is
alleged, wa made out to H. A. Mack, ono
of the company's ealesmen and signed
by Mr. Mack
Mr. Trudeau knowing that the check
was on a rdiahli concern cashed tho
check, but not until ho asked Walker how
he tamo to get It. He explained he was
advertising in this city for this concern
and that Mr. Mack, their representntlve,
gave the check to him. Mr. Mack, who
was in this city at that time, happened
to come Into Mr. Trudeau's place of busi
ness and he was asked If the check was
all rlpht, to which Mr. Mark replied in
the negative, saying he had not f-cen the
check before, Mr. Trudeau seeing Walker
standing across the road accosted htm and
Walker returned the money.
How Walker came Into possession of
the check Is not kfiown, but It is be
lieved, according to those Interested, that
he opened a letter addressed to Mr. Mack
in which the check was enclosed,
, Walker before loaving town also
separated his associates, with whom he
has been working, from their best suits
of clothes and other personal belongings.
