The meeting was helcl in the town hall and Oscar L. Shepard of the republican town committee presided and happily jirc.sented the speaker.-. Last year at a similar rally the threc?-cornc'ied fight for the gov ernorship carne to a climax and de veloped almost a personal en counter between the candidates at the- Hardwick meeting.

This friendly rivalry i much to be preferred ancl is much nearer the ideal Veirnont way of playing the politicai game. Gov. Foote saicl he was not in favor of the state board of con trol as it now functions; helieved that federai aid money for high ways coulil be much more profit ablv expencled under direction of some one who known something of locai conditions.

WASHINGTON, Sept. G The injunction against the striking shop.nen was declared today in the Sonate by Senator Robinson, Democrat, Arkansas, to be violat ing both the Constitution and the Clayton Act. The Arkansas sena tor declared that "the injunction abridged the freedom of specchi and of the press and the right of pe ople peaceably to assemblo." He argued that it violatcd the section of the Clayton Act which he said implied "that laborers might organize and act in concert for the benefit of mutuai aid an I helpfulness without the fear of prosecution under anti-trust laws". He charged that the federai courts naet exceeaea tneir autnority in is nuing the temporary restraining ordcr and declared that, "the al le ged advantages to be dcrived from tne temporary injunction are more than offset by the permancnt impairment of the reputation of the federai judiciary for integrity and impartiality that must result from such an unwarranted as sumption of'authority?"
