eNl'iil.
Waterbury, June 7 A searching party
of yo'or 40 men were out all day Sunday
scouring the woods for F. M. Waterman,
who disappeared more than a week ago.
The theory of Mr, Waterman's friends Is
that he went away in a temporary aberra
tion of mind and has perhaps died in the
woods. This theory, however, is not gen
erally accepted, the party thoroughly
searched the wood and hills on the east
side of the Wlnooskl. between here and

HONORED IN BARRE
Memorial Serviscs to the Prominen
Socialist Under Auspices of
Barre Local.
A memorial for the late Rev. Frederic
O. MacCartney of Rockland, Mass., who
was probably the foremost Socialist of that
state and also a worker for the cause of
the laboring man, was held in Tool Sharp
eners' hail in this city yesterday forenoon
There was a small attendance. The prin
cipal speaker was Philip J. Halvosa w ho
paid an eloquent tribute to the Rev. Mr.
MacCartney. Remarks were also made by
severai otners.
Ihe gathering was called to order by
donn Anaerson, wno spoue briefly, ex
pressing regret mat mere were not more
people present. He explained the call for
the meeting, that at the last meeting of
Barre Ixwal of Socialists it was voted to
have the memorial and that the unions of
the city were Invited to attend. He then
called upon James Cruickshank, president
of the G. C. N. U. Mr. Cruickshank spoke
oneiiy saying mat not until recently had
he known much of Mr. MacCartney, "Ev
ery step he took was in the right dire
tion."
Ben. F. Healey, president of the Central
Labor Union and Timothy lvers of the
quarrymen's union responded briefly on
the w orth of the man, and then the chair
man read an editorial from the Evening
Telegram of Saturday calling attention to
the memorial meeting and eulogizing the
Rev. Mr. MacCartney.
The last speaker, Mr. Halvosa. spoke
for about half an hour, his remarks beincr
frequently applauded. He cave a review
of his life, of his theological training, of
his leaving the ministry in the Universa
le church, but not leaving as a "black
leg," of his work in the legislature of Mas
sachusetts and of his untiring devotion to
the causa of the laboring man. It was
fitting that Barre, one of the strongest
union towns In the country, should nav
this tribute to him, bnt his regret was that
more were not present. The opera house
should have been filled to overflowing, in
stead of the number that assembled in
Tool Sharpeners' hall. , ".
ne Socialists have lost a friend, a
comrade, a brother; the laboring men
have lost a pure-minded man, an iinpur
chasable man, a man above corruption
and above suspicion. Although he Is
dead may his life be an Inspiration to all
of us."
Following Mr. Halvosa'a address, a mo
tion was adopted that resolutions of sym
pathy be drawn np, that they be inserted
in the papers of the city and" that a copy
of the resolutions be sent to the father of
the Rev. F. O. MacCartney. The follow-:
iog committee was elected to draw up the
resolutions, being composed of Socialists
and trade-unionists: James Cruickshank,
John Morris, Philip J. Halvosa, Ben F.
Henley and William Murray.
Rev. Mr. MacCartney lectured in this
city last winter.

CITY OF BARRE
IS CONDEMNED
Says Re v. R, F. Lowe,
in Sunday Sermon,
FOR LICENSING SALOONS.
Pastor of Hedding M.E. Church Makes
a Vigorous Attack on the
License Law.
In a sermon on temperance at the Hed
ding M. E. church yesterday morn lug,
Rev. R. F. Lowe, pastor of the church,
declared that "the city of Barre is con
detuned of God" for having allowed the
licensed saloons to be opened on its streets.
There was a very large attendance, the
body of the house being well filled.
Rev. Mr. Lowe took for his theme
What should be the attitude of temper
ance people toward these new conditions
in Vermont?" and said in part: "This
new law came upon the temperance pea
pie unexpectedly. They had been asleep,
thinking that they could depend upon the
prohibition law, which had stood for fifty
years, to always stand, and they were
caught. In one sense I can almost say
that it is a good thing In disguise, as It
will serve to awaken them.
Now that the license people have got the
law, it Is up to them to enforce it, though
think we should stand bv ail the rAxt.rin-
tions of the law. I do not think that this
state la going to be satisfied with the law
and we must put our efforts into the com
ing legislature.
I cannot at this early date make an Im
partial estimate of this license law. A
city official told me that there has been
more drunkenness in the past month In
this city than there ever was before in it
history.
Ihe uierehauts are complaining of fh
general loss in the productivity of the city,
and I believe that the city will pot maku
one dollar this year out of their lieensa
money, w hen the cost of extra police, the
increase in the poor appropriation and the
loss in the productivity of the city is reck-
uueu up.
This city has gone into the debaucheiy
of its young manhood. It has allowed the
elegant, lighted saloon to be the best en
tertainment for its young men, and the
city-is condemned of God for allowing such
things to be.
It must be lamentably short sighted if
it cannot see a better wav of mana-ing
the llqu r traffic. This city should make
counter attractions. There should be a
Y. M. C. A. building, a gymnasium or any
similar place for its youug people to go
Into to take up their spare time. And
these things should enirace the attention
of every good citizen of Barre,"
