The averace daily circulation of the
Barre Daily Times for the wafe enUliig
Saturday was
Oop!e3, the largest pa.4 circulation of any
daily paper In this section.
in the daily circulation of the
Tiiiies since Jan. 1st is something
no othw Washington county daily
can show.
The circulation statements of
the Times can always be verified
by anyone who so ishes. Press
room, circulation books, paper
bills and all that pertains to the
circulation of the Times are open
to the inspection of all. Is there
any other Washington county
daily that will show tip in like
manner ?
Says the Boston Herald: The Vermont
girl who wishes the "obey" promise cut
out of her marriage ceremony takes it
quite too seriously, inereniay he some
truth in the assertion that a woman
doesn't know how to take a joke.
whenever anything happens to bring
Uarre's Italian population into public no
tice there are certain newspaper corre
spondents who work overtime making copy
lor state and metropolitan papers. The
recent case of the Barre Italian paper is
an example. The Sunday papers have
long stories that last week's Issue failed to
appear and the reasons for its non-ap
pearance, when as a matter or fact it was
printed and mailed on Thursday, Its usual
day for mailing. Another story sent out
without any truth to it, is that stone cut
ters set the type on the paper, taking
turns, one gang setting it one week and
aaother gang the nest. Jut the most ri
diculous story Is that the Pateraim an
archists have moved to Barre and make
this city headquarters for the anarchists of
the country. Barre anarchists are a peace
able lot, and have very little in common
with Paterson Italians, who are principal
ly engaged in the silk industry while the
only means of a livelihood for Italians in
. Barre is stone cutting.
hue the Times has no sympathy with
the prineipli'8 advocated by those engaged
iu the publication of "Ctonaea Sovver-
siva" and believes that if they have trans-
gressea any of the laws of the country,
they should he' punished, it knows them
to be goud citizens In that they are peace
able, honest men, who mind their own af
fairs, pay their bills, and have no desire
to trouble anyone, and whose children are
among the brightest scholars in our public
schools. There are exceptions, of oourse.as
there are among the other nationalities
which inakeupourpopulation. Theracehas
its agitators who visit Barre as well as other
places which have a considerable Italian
population. Some of theta acquire the
American habit for consuming great quan
tities of strong drink at d under its influ
ence they are not peaceable citizens, but
the whole body of Italian citizens in Barre
is not to be condemned because of the ac
tions of a few any more than all native
Americans should be denounced because
there are bad examples among them.
Large numbers of Italians have come from
northern Italy to Barre in the past few
years' and the work of assimilation and of
making them American citizens with a
right understanding of what American lib
erty means is making steady progress and
in years to come they will be couuted
among the best blood of Vermont.
