Attempted Abduction of Two Armen
ian Children in Same City
Winooski, Aug. 21. With a man sand
bagged and left unconscious on the main
street of the village at 10 o'clock in the
evening, and an attempted abduction of
two children by their father, Winooski
has enough to talk about for some time.
. An unknown man; presumably a chance
visitor, while walking up Main street last
evening, was suddenly felled by a blow
from behind and knocked to the sidewalk.
The man was rendered unconscious but
revived and was all right later in the even
ing. The assault occurred in front of .Sam
Bergman's restaurant on lower Main
street. The proprietor nor anyone else as
far as is knowD, saw the man hit but he
was found a few minutes later prostrate
on the sidewalk. After he became con
scious he related that he was hit, presum
ably by a club and then he fell and knew
nothing more, lie had some money but
would not give his name.
The abduction case la Interesting and
the end Is not yet. The story in outline
is as follows: A year ago a company of
children, possibly a dozen tn all, were
broncht from Boston by an agent and
adopted out to citizens at Winooski. A
Syrian girl, t years old, was taken by Mr.
and Mrs. John Iabrule, and a boy also of
that nationality, two years old, by Alfred
I.avelle of Hall street. Both children were
sent to school and proved to be bright
Yesterdav afternoon Charles Depps, a
Syrian of Worcester, Mass., appeared and
rinding the boy in company with ' his fos
ter-father, attempted to take him away by
force. The child did not want to go to
Depps, but recognized him as his father.
Mr. Depps can talk no English, but is
accompanied by an interpreter. He says
that both children after the death of the
mother were placed in a convent in Bos
ton. One day when he went to the insti
tution to visit them ha was told that the
children had been sent into the country
for a vacation. This was eight or nine
in mths ago. The children not returning
within a reasonable time the father be
came suspicious but could not secure the
address of the place where they were un
til a few days ago and immediately came
to Winooski after them. Both Mr. Laveiie
and Mr. Dubrule claim that they have
legally adopted the children bnt will give
them up on a reasonable remuueration for
their trouble.
A hearing In the case will be held to

Rutland, Aug. 21. The board of li
cense commissioners of Rutland are much
Incensed at the severe arraignment which
they have been receiving at the hands of
the" Rutland Herald.
The board today made the following
"In view of the statements made in the
editorial columns of the Rutland Herald
of August 19 the license commissioners of
the city of Rutland deem it their duty to
say to the public that this editorial was a
gross misstatement of certain conditions,
probably for the purpose of misleading
the publio.
"We desire further to state that there
has been no complaint made in form as
provided by law, to the commission, rela
tive to the illegal sale of intoxicating li
quors but what has been properly disposed
of; that the commissioners have instructed
the police to furnish them evidence of any
violation of the law that may come to
their knowledge at any and all times; that
the members of the sheriff's department
have also received the same request and
that even the editor of the Rutland Herald
has been Importuned by the board for
such evidence, which he has failed to fur
nish in any way tip to the present time.
"Wn desire no newsnaner controversy
and make this statement simply to Inform
the public of our position in the matter.
We are very desirous of seeing the local
option law enforced and are asking the
publio for every scrap of evidence in form
which we can use to convict any parties
licensed or unlicensed, within our jurisdic
tion. C. E. Thomson, Chairman,
C. W. Pennington,

C S- Geological Search Successful In Ver
mont. St. Albans. Aug. 21. Henry E. Dick
haut of the United States geological sur
vey, who has been gathering fossils from
the Cambrian division in this vicinity,has
gone to Burlington to continue his work
on the Cambrian rocks. George E. Edson,
the local geologist, who has assisted Mr.
Dickhaut in his research here, says they
were extremely fortunate in their iinds, as
they shipped to Washington, D. t'., over
one thousand pounds of material to be
worked up. Several fossils were found
that were not in Mr. Edson's collection of
Cambrian fossils. The fossils sought were
shells needed for the completion of a mon
ograph on Cambrian Brachipods, which
will soon be published by Charles D. Wol
cott, director of the United States geolog
ical survey.

no report of their departure has yet
been received. This is taken by the

The diplomats point out that the
