Windsor is the real live political tnwr in Vermont, with three candidate al ready for representative to the stite legislature; and, what is more, the can didates are occupying from one-half t) ione column of space in jtiie local nevs 'paper to announce their qualifications (for the position. Having started thin : early, Windsor ought to be able to pick ia good representative before the logi 'lature assembles in October. There is one thing about Taft that I can be commended, even by bis1 oppo nents. It is the masterful way he ia standing to his guns on the reciprocity j issue, even though reciprocity has bcnn 'proven a sorry thing for his candidacy i in some of the northern border state I during the past few weeks. Taft still believes in reciprocity and he isn't afraid to say so. He stands squarely on his (feet as to that issue, as I.e. does about other things. You know where to plnce JTaft. president will be told so by the voters. Moreover, by the same token, the voters may be depended upon to put a quietus on the third-term idea, as they did in the case of President Grant, without recourse to a set limit. The sober good sense of the American public can be rt.lied upon. Congressman Cvirley of Massachusetts, jwho has been conducting a Ftill hunt in Vermont for Speaker Champ Clark, left I in doubt as to the sentiment of the Dom- jocrats on the presidency; but be in in llittle different frame of mind than most 'people in the state, who are constantly in touch with everyday affairs here and who, notwithstanding that close asso ciation, are not able to say which candi date the Vermont Democracy will sup 'port. There have been few occasion jin which the sentiment of the Vermont Democrats was less solidified than at the present time. Ho Congressman Cur ley's failure to "smoke out" the party is not to be wondered at. The proposition to make the term of ioffice of president of the United States i six years and only one term is, of course, (the outgrowth of the present candidacy iOf Theodore Roosevelt, who has served jpractically two terms and is now seek ing a third term, it being held by the isponsors of the measure that some re striction U necessary to prevent repeated jterma of office and to maintain the prin ciples of democracy which hold that too ilong tenure of office tends to dictator ship. While there is some merit in the proposition, it would be too restrictive inasmuch as it would prevent the eoun jtry from securing the services of a sue icessful president" for two terms of four iyeara each, when, as a matter of fact, jeight years might be necessary to en able him to carry out satisfactory poli jeies which could not be completed in six jyears. It must be borne in mind, too, ;tlat in the case of the two terms of foue years each an election has to inter vene, thus giving the voters of the coun .try the chance to say whether the presi dent has proven himself worthy of con tinuance in office. If unworthy, the COMMISSIONER TROUTY'S POSITION MADE CLEAR. There has been so much rumor concern ing the intention of Interstate Commerce Commissioner Charlce A. Prouty to re tire from that work and return to his home in Vermont, with the added gossip that he intended to become a candidate for United States senator to succeed William P. Dillingham, that the follow ing from the Newport Express and Standard, apparently authorized, is very instructive: "As the home paper of the ITon. Charles A. Prouty of the interstate com merce commission, we are authorized to statp that the. report now current that he is soon to resign his position and return to his old home in Newport Is a mistake. The report grew out of a remnrk made by him at a recent meeting of the Vermont -association in Wash ington, D. C, and which waa not intend ed to convey the meaning that has been attached to it. Mr. Prouty will serve out his full term on. the commission. As to being a candidate for the senatorship, now held by William P. Dillingham, he has not uttered a syllable on that sub jtct, n:r will he be a candidate before the term of Mr. Dillingham expires. What may happen after that will depend entirely upon the will of the people." The assertion accredited to Commis sioner Prouty at the Tecent gathering of Vermonters in Washington was not in terpreted to mean that he intended an immediate retirement from his present very important work and that he should, therefore, resign before the expiration of his present term. As to the possibil ity of Commissioner Prouty becoming a candidate for senator, that was merely one of the rumors which fly about any man prominent in public life; but it did seem certain that Commissioner Prouty would seek official preferment at the hands of his fellow-citizens, a conjecture that is substantiated by his home news paper in the above naive assertion. I CURRENT COMMENT i : .1 Gives Barre Its Dues. It is rather surprising that the usu ally up-to-date Ludlow Tribune should lapse to the extent of asserting that Tarre City is credited with a population of about 8,500," when, by reference to the 1010 census, it would be shown that Barre's imputation was 10.734, not to mention the orowffi biiioh tl,.. v ,.., the-less, the large figures only serve to urmg out me lorce 01 the contemporary's suiwstioii. anent the. rnvnf nt t,lu of thirty-three voters at a Barre city meeting, that Vermonters do not take enough interest in their administrative affairs.

MARSHFIELD, Death of Charles Darling, Only Son of Mr. and Mr. Fred Darling. Charles Darling, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Darling, passed away early Saturday morning, after 17 weeks of suffering from tuberculosis. Charlie had two attacks of this trouble, earlier in life, but the young man's disposi tion to work was so strong that he did more indoor work than was health ful. He was taken ill in Wells River last January and his parents removed him to the home, from which he was again removed Monday, to his last rest ing place in Cabot. Charlie was the only child of Fred and Clara Ticks Dar ling, was always a great favorite among his young friends, as the many young companions and beautiful flowers at the funeral will bear testimony. Every thing possible to be done was done by parents and physicians to save the life so dear to them, and Charlie was niaK iug a fight for life, too. patiently en during all the pain and discomfort, and when he knew he must leave his Tom! parents, strove to comfort them, mak ing arrangements for the last cere monies. The funeral was from the home, Monday at 1 o'clock, Rev. I. A. Ranney officiating. "Sometime We'll Under stand" was sung by Mrs. Bliss, Mr. Pike, Mr. Hudson and Mr. Davis. The bearers were A. T.
