VICTORY AT LAST
After working and waiting for half
a eentury ecuaì suffrage has come in
the United States by the vote of the
Tennessee Legislature on ednesday
There never was a valid reason why
this should not have happened be
fore, and if the women who were op
posed to equal suffrage stili cling to
their views, they can do as too many
men have done in the past stay
away from the polis.
'We welcome the advent of women
into public life and are contident that
the day of prejudice at their partici
pation in public affai rs has passed
away. That these privileges .should
have been denied them so lontr is in
dicative of the idea which some men
have had as to woman's sphere.
Neither sex is superior to the other
and each are entitled to erjual priv
ileges. .
If more legislation is needed in
any state to carry out the provisions
of the 19th amendmentt here should
f. nn iinnsition to nut anv barriere
in the wav of giving the women of
the Uniteli States the sanie nrivileges
as men. The'majority of the people
of the United States, irrespective of
.sex, wanted equal suffrage and the
majority have fìnally won.
That Vermont could not have the
honor of being the perfect ,th is the
only sad featuie of a great victory.
Dui- state constitution can soon be
amended, and it ought to be amended
so that one man, who hanDened to be
governor, could never defeat the will
of the people again.
Gov. Clement missed the opportu
nity of a life time to make history
and his refusai to cali an extra ses
sion was a deliberate attempt to
thwart the will of the people. Con
stitutionally he was within his legai
l ights, but "his postion todav is an un
enviable one. The world war clearly
demonstrated that one man power in
the world was never more to be tol
erated and it will not be tolerated in
Vermont after the next election.

THE DEPRECI ATED DOLLAR
Twenty-four years ago the country
was stirred by a campaign dealing
with the currency question. It was
claimed that free coinage of silver
would so depreciate the doilar stand
ard, that every doilar would be worth
50 cents only. Tjnis, it was said,
would be of the nature of repudia
tion. Every man who had a savings
bank deposit would find that his
dollars, for which he had worked so
hard, wore worth but half piice.
Now precisely the sanie thing has
happened. The doilar has depreci it
ed, but from other sources. Every
man who has manifested thrift and
laid away money in a bank, findsith.it
his savings are only worth half what
they were.
This has a most diseouraging effert.
It tends to deter peiple from thrift.
There are many people who would be
willing to go back to the half o
their present wages that they former
ly earned, if the prices then prevail
ing could be restored, and their sav
ings again recover their originai
value. It would probably be for the
benefit of the country.
The change has been unevenly dis
tributed. Many people are getting
mudi more than doublé their former
pay, while many others are getting
much less than that. This crcatcs
friction and class warfare.
Everyone is going to protest
against having his pay cut, at least
until the cost of living has gone down
a corresponding amount." And it
can't come down while the wage
levels rehiain high.
'' Some one element has got to make
the move first to get prices back at
least part way toward normal. The
first clement to yield should be the
people who are making liberal pro
fits. They could cut their price
without suffering for it. They will
gr'catly promote the prosperity of the
country, and in the end their own, by
pricking their own particular bubble.
PRESS COMMENT
MUSH AND TABASCO
(Rutkfnd Herald)
Addison county men of various
shades of politicai belief are chuck
ling over, some unpublished details
of the great three-star politicai meet
ing held in Bristol a few days sirice.
Ali agree in saying a pleasant time
was had by ali the audience, but
some of the candidates are reported
to have been considerably "haired
up".
Not having l.ad the advantage of
fnst-hand information about the
great occasion, The Herald vouches
not for the veracity of the chucklers,
but, they do say thjit Candidate
"Curt" Emery challenced his oppon
ents to get un like little men and

state whut thev had spent to date for
campaign expenses, whereupon Can
didate "Jim" Hartness sprang to his
feet and wagged his fìst or his
f.ngers, or his fingers crossud
under Kmery's nose and said:
"Mr. Emery, I want you to under
stand I'm a gentleman," meaning by
that, perhaps, that when he spent
money he .pent it like a gentleman.
Also, that Candidate "Fred" Bab
bitt waved his arms "rotestingiy
aloft and declared that he "not
.spent a doilar except for personal ex
penses," whi;h wftuld be stiictly ac
cording to law if ho said it and if it
were true. Naturally, Fred did not
undertake to explain Col. John E.
Pidlock, Edmund P. Howe, "Tom"
P.eeves, "Bob" McCuen, "Harry"
Whitehill, Frank Parsons and a few,
other loyal booster, than whom
Caesar's wife could not be more
above reroach of course not.
But ali was healed and sealed af
tervard when the happy party and
their v.onien-foll "met up" at the
hotel and amieably broke bread to
getlier. Even then, say the wieked
chucklers, the little demon of mis
chief strove to break thiough the
rTaìryon mcal.
Hartness was expounding some
theory of government about which
he knows l'ully as much as he does
about dairv farniing and one of his
hqnorablo but outrageous opponents
su'"re.1ited :
"But, Mr. Hartness, isn't that dia
metrically oposed to vour theory as
set forili in Bulletin No. ?"
"By jove," it is said Hartness with
a jovial (ri in, "I guess I didn't read
that one."
Ali of which is not particularly im
portant, even if true, but merely adds
a faint tabasco tanf to an otherwise
boiled-mush campaign.

Dr. J. I). Bachand of St. Johnsbury
has the following letter in the Mor
risville Messenger in reply to a recent
cditorial in that paper:
Editor of the Messenger: I read
with interest your comment about my
candidacy as "County Senator for
Caledonia county.
You state exactly the whole truth
when you say that I am not a big
man. I am only a very modest citi- j
zen and I will remain such whether
elected or not, believe me. i
When you state that there is no
steam roller against me you err.
You have no conception of the situa- ;
tion.
When you state that I am afraid
you err again. It takes courage to
fight the aggregation that I have
against me. I think I have shown no
fear yet, and I intend to keep on
fighting with ali the energy possible.

religious ground to defeat him I cali
it unfair. I have my failings, Mr.
Editor, but I can assure you that I
can face the Freeman of Caledonia
County on the question of impartiality
whether it is in politics or otherwise.
I have supported here our candidates
for the past eight or ten years re
Eardless of their creed. I have im

Caledonia County,
I am absolutely right when I say
that the fteam roller is loaded with

of the print paper shortage and for
that reason he isn't submitting the
menus for every day we have been in
camp. However, these menus may be

in charge, giving their opinion as to
Uhe relative merits of the two com
pany s menus. lhis is a dispute that
can be settled satisfactorily only by
the rendering of an opinion by an
outsider. Let's have it from some
one. The boys in Company L are key
ed up to a high pitch of excitement
over this story and resent the action
of Company I) in claiming better
"mess."
Today was one of the first real
pleasant days the First Vermont
Regiment has had since its arrivai
in camp and the officers in command
rnade 'the most of it by givin" the
sohìiers some good stiff drilling. This
wasthe last day of drill and as a re-.-ult
there was a good full schedule of
maneuvers.
Tomoirow, the boys male their
first trip to the ride range, spending
thieo days in ali at target practice.
The men will leave early in the
morning and will not return unti i late
eating their meals on the range. The
lads are looking forward to this be
cause there is considerable rivaliy
among the boys as to who is the best
shot. They will ali have a good
chance during the remaining days in
camp to show what they can do in
the way of shooting.
; Today the soldiers were given
practically a repetition of the drill
they were given yesterday, whitTi
consisted of skirmishing, deploying
of troops and the taking of a strang
point.
Monday was a big day for the
troops in the field. Company L had
ordnrs to take a strong noint on En
gineer's Hill about a mile from their
starting point. Needless to say Com
pany L took this point. Their object
ive was a trench a short distance in
the rear of Engineer's Hill, but the
men were held up by the commanu
ing officers and re-organized.
"Dry Bridge" on Danville
Road Being Rebuilt
The St. Johnsbury and Lake Cham
plafn railroad are rebuilding the 'dry
bridge" on the Danville road just
above Fairbanks village and the west
bound freight began unloading the
timbers Thursday morning. The
bridge will be erected by P. Balda
saro, a Bellows Falls contractor, and
will be ready for use by the first of
Oetober if not before. It will be
located above the presert structure
which will not be torn down urrtil the
new bridge is completed. By chag
ing the location the approach to the
bridge will be greatly improved and
ali who have occasion to cross it,
either in teams or autos, will be glad
to know that it will b wider than the
old one or 22 feet wide. The old
bridge has been in Constant use for
over 25 years and besides being too
narrow for the increased tiaffic was
getting where extensivc rcpairs
would have been nccessary.
