Montpelier, Anif 5. The reasons for re lieving Station Agent Lang at the Cen tral Vermont depot are still uuknown, and various rumors are in the air. One is that it was due to a kick from the granite shippers. Several of the dealers have been interviewed aud while they say thev have had cause for great complaint against the service they have been receiving, they do not attach any blame to Mr. Lang, but believe the trouble Is due to lack of rail road help to do the work. All the ship pers speak in the highest terms of Mr. Lang and several are talking of making a protest to St. Albans. . Mr. Lang has ad vocated a larger force to do the work, but has never been able to get it. Today a new freight train made its appearance. I he belief is expressed that this will cause more satisfaction. Mr, Lang has been offered the station at Ran- doldb, but it Is said that Ie w ill not de cide for a week or so until after the trans fer of the local station is completed. Prob ably no agent has been as popular as Mr. Lang and there is considerable feeling about town over the matter. FOURTH ANNIVERSARY. Barre Couple Had Wedding Anniversary at Htghgate.

DUNN GIVEN DECISION Graniteville Boxer Won Easily CRIES OF FOUL HEARD Andy Watson, Colored, of Boston, .Was Opponent of the Ver mont Mm.. Montpelier, Aug. 5. Si.x hundred men gathered in Armory hall tonight to wit ness a so-called athletic exhibition, the principal event of which was a ten-round sparring contest for points between Frank Dunn of Graniteville. light-weight cham pion of Vermont, and Andy Watson, col ored, light-weight champion of New Eng land. W. II. Brown of Hardwick was referee and gave the match to Dunn in the fourth round on a foul amid loud cries of "fake." Frank R. Dawley of Bellows Falls and William Hooper of Montpelier put up a pretty-exhibition, -which was scheduled as a five round contest but Dawley was knocked out in the third round. The oth er events were an illuminated club swing ing by John E. Lelatid and a sprightly boxing match between two lads. Burke and Jackson. The hat was passed for the kids and $9.50 was collected. The big event of the evening did not start until late. Dunn weighed iu at 172 pounds, having the advantage over Wat son of over 30 pounds. Arthur Ross and Jerry Donahue acted as seconds for Dunn, while William Hooper aud George Serib ner oliiciated hi a similar capacity for the colored man. The mill was short and the crowd was dissatisfied. The first round was occupied cuieny in ieeimg around and no heavy hitting was done. Both showed them selves pretty well up in the art of boxing. ilia second aud third rounds passed near Iy as quickly and about as tamelv. The fourth and deciding round was only a minute and a half In duration. Watson struck out; but bis blow evidently went lower than he expected. A look of dis tress came over Dunn's face, and Referee brown called a foul and awarded the mill to the Graniteville man. The crowd set up a howl but the man agement insisteil that there was no fake, that the men had never seen each other before and that they did not know who the referee was nntil they stripped for the battle. The two fighters divided f 150, sixty per cent going to Dunn and forty to Watson. Another mill of the evening was a short and sweet set-to between George Cavbo and an uuknown novice who quickly threw up the sponge. The latter admitted that he never had worn a pair of gloves before, and the crowd agreed with him to the full est extent. MONTPELIER UNIONS INVITED. To Participate In Ilarre Labor Iav Cele bration, Sept. 7. At the special meeting of the Central Labor Union held last evening matters pertaining to the observance of Labor Day were ons'iiered. Jtwas voted to extend an invitation to the Central Labor Union of Montpelier, and the subordiante anions of that city and vicinity, to join the Barre unions in their picnic, which will be held at Caledonia Park on Monday, Sept. 7. Among the sports it was deckled to have a tug-of-war tournament between the so cieties and labor organizations of Barre and Graniteville, for which a prize of 20 was voted.

Good Sized Crowd Heard Montpelier Mili tary Hand The third in the series of band concerts that are being given in this city by the Montpener Military uan attracted a good sized crowd about the City Park last even ing, although not so many people as usual attended owing to the threatening weather. The concert was perhaps the best one thus far given and was quite liberally applaud ed. Collectors went about among the crowd and collected a total of $19.40 which will go towards the expenses of the concerts. It is probable that there will not be an other concert for two weeks at least as the band left this morning to attend muster as the regimental band. Two of the church societies, the Metho dist and the Episcopal, took advantage of the opportunity and served ice cream aud cake, and although the weather was scarcely ice cream weather, they did well.
