BURKE IS MA YOR
OF BURLINGTON,
COURTS DECISION
Judge Woodward of Montpelier
Sustained and Andrew Rog
ers Hast Serve 102 Days in
House of Correction at Rut
land for Second Offense.
This and Other Decisions Handed
Down by the Supreme Court
Today Decision on Railroad
Case to Come This Afternoon.
Court Will Adjourn Tonight.
Montpelier, May 28. When Supreme
Court came in at eleven o'clock this morn
ing several important decisions were ren
dered preparatory to adjournment, the
most important of which was sustaining
the cause of James Burke of Burlington
who brought quo warranto proceedings
against Donly C. Hawley of the same city
to show why he was acting as mayor of
that city. The other was the sustaining
of Judge C. E. Woodward of the Montpe
lier city court in sentencing Andrew Rog
ers from his court to the house of correc
tion to serve a sentence for a second of
fence of intoxication.
At noon the court took a recess until
S.wO o'clock, at which time it is expected
that a decision will be rendered en the
mandamus case of Mayor Corry vs. the
Barre t Montpelier l'ower and Traction
Co.
In the Burlington mayoralty ease in
which proceedings were brought by James
Burke demanding that 1). C. Hawley show
why he is acting as mayor of that city, the
cause of the complaint is sustained, the
writ Is awarded and that the complainant
is entitled to the otlice; that the defendant
do not in any way Intermeddle with the
things concerning or about the same; that
he be absolutely forbidden and secluded
from exercising any of the functions of the
office and that he pay the eosts of the pro
ceeding. The court found that K3 votes which
had a cross at the head of the Democratic
and Ixx-al Option columns under the name
of James E. Burke should be counted for
Mr. Burke.
in the easpjof Andrew Rogers who was
refused admission to the house of correc
tion by Supt. Morgan on the ground that
there was no provision in the license law
to that effect, having been sentenced by
Judge Woodward of the Montpelier city
court, the court sustained the sentence of
the Montpelier judge. The sentence was
to serve for a second offence of intoxica
tion. Supreme Court decided that the mitti
mus was faulty in describing the crime,
but that Supt. Morgan had no right to re
fuse to receive Rogers It is probable
that a new mittimus will be made out and
that Rogers will be taken at once to the
house of correction to serve a sentence of
102 da vs.
In the Washington county case of Chase
vs. atson. et.al., judgment was afnrmea
In the Addison county case, quo warranto
proceedings of Jenney against Sweeney as
to which was elected road commissioner of
the town of Leicester, the court decided
that Sweeney was elected on the ninth
ballot.
Orthodox Jfw IlUfrnnrhUril.
Chicago, May 2S. From 5,000 to 10,
000 Jewish voters, if they shall ml
nere strictly to their religious pre
cepts, will be disfranchised at the Judi
cial election here on Monday owing to
the fact that Monday is the first day
f Pentecost, when no orthodox Jew
will uo even the amount of work re
quired to mark his ballot. As the law
requires that every voter shall mark
his own ballot, more is said to be no
way out of the dilemma.

LICENSE LAW
TO BE BURIED
So Declared at W.GT.U.
"Convention.
SESSIONS ARE CLOSED.
Address by National Lecturer, Mrs.
Richards, Hard by Good
Audience. ,
The Washington County Women's Chris-"
tian Temperance Union convention closed
last evening after two days of well attended
and successful meetings. The principal
speaker on last evening's programme was
Mrs. rlorence Kichards of Ohio, national
W. C. T. U. lecturer, who gave a very
able and eloquent address on the open sa
loon as a destroyer of the home, before a
large audience.
At 3.00 in tho afternoon the dispensary
system was thoroughly discussed and Mrs.
A. X. Lane conducted a question box with
answers which proved very interesting.
This was followed by a discussion of the
subject, "Besolved, That good citizenship
involves our Support of Vermont High Li
Cense Local Option Law." Both the af
firmative and negative sides of the ques
tion were planued to be discussed bnt only
a few spoke on the affirmative and none
wonld uphold this side of the question.
The substance of the arguments of the
negative side was that all the restrictions
of the license law should be enforced but
that they could not support or uphold any
kind of a license law. -
Just before the address by Mrs. Kich
ards, the newly elected president of the
Washington County W. C. T. U Mrs. K.
II. Watkins of Barre, presented Mrs. Ida
Keed, president of the Ida Heed union,
with eighty six cards tied together with
white ribbon, and on the cards was writ
ten: "Desiring to express to our beloved
president, Mrs. Ida II. Reed, our appreci
ation of her faithful labors in the temper
ance cause, we, the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union of do con
tribute $ toward the fund for erec
tion of a rest cottage on her lot at Spring
Grove, Vermont." .
The sum subscribed on these cards
amounted to $22.'1.js! and there is some
more to be collected.
Mrs. Watkins in her presentation read
a poem wrif.en for the occasion by Key,
J. A. Sheibtirn. Mrs. Kead very feeling
ly responded thanking the union for their
gift.
Mrs. Kichards said in part. "The Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union first
started in a little Presbyterian church iu
Ilillsboro, Ohio, in Ls7;J, and the same
vows made on that day to tight for the
temperance cause have kept up until this
day, and the number of followers has in
creased until in every country there are
white ribboned women lighting for the
temperance cause.
1 don't care how high a license a saloon
may have it is a robber and a destroyer of
the home. lain astonished that a" state
can think of it for a moment of regulating;
the traffic; they can't doit. Prominent
men have said that the W. C. T. U. is the
greatest lawmaking body in the world and
that is true.
When the glad day comes that women
can vote as well as men, and it is surely
coming, we won't stand a dispensary sys
tem ou anything that looks like the regu
lation of the liquor traffic, and until that
glad day comes we must work with more
earnestness. I believe that Vermont will
bury this licence law in a few years so that
it win never rise again.
