The St. Johnsbury Band furnished
good music and Guy W. Hill, Esq.,
puesided. Mr. Hill complimented the
ladies on securing their poi t'cal
rights and ali the speakers began
their address with "Ladies and Gen

story of the evening and it was very
pertinent to the campaign.
Judge Homer L. Skeels of Ludlow
rpoke for about 10 minutes on the
constitutional rights of Vermonters.
He said the people of Windsor coun
ty inherited a spirit of independence
from the old Constitution House at

Plant of U. S. Bobbin &
Shuttle Co. Entirelv Wip
cd Out in $50,000 Pire
The most di.sastrous fi re that ever
visited Lunenburg started just bc-
1o re midnight in the boiler room ol
the U. S. Bobbin & Shuttle Company
and wiped out tho entire plant, in
eluding the boarding house, the
flnisheri product and the large stock
of raw product. The loss will ex
cced $50,000.
The fi re was discovered about 11. HO
and spread with such rapidity that
the men who were sudjcnly awaken
ed from their slumbers could not en
ter the wooden building to save their
tools or any of the propeity of the
milk The flames soon spread to the
boarding house adjoining and this
building was also destroyed, though
there was time to save most of the
furniture and the personal efifeets of
the roomers. The automobile and
four horses belonging to the corpo
ration were saved. During the pro
gress of the tire Ren Gee was over
come by the umoke and Saturday
morning was stili reported as being
in quite a senous condition. I
Besides the mill and the boarding
house there were four large loads of j
bobbins burned and the raw produets j
adjoining the mill.
The plant is located in the north
jiart of the town and has long been
utilized for the manufactuie of bob-
i bins. About five ycars ago it was
( taken over by the U. S. Bobbin &
Shuttle Co. of Providence, K. I., and
this corporation has greatly increased
the business. Much new machinery
has been installed and under the ener
"getic management of H. T. Silsby
they have given employment to 25
men. The valuation of the building

agents, so far as could be learned,
was $500 which was placed with the
Crawfofd Ranney Agency. The bulk
of the insurance is placed elsewhere.
It is hoped that the corporation will
rebuild the plant as it was a good lo
cation for the raw product and was

the big paper mills at Fitzdale.
