HE DAI L VOL. XVI--NO. 67. BAHRE. VERMONT, MONDAY. JUNE 3. 1012. PRICE, ONE CENT. WORST CRISIS OF GENERATION Country is Facing Declared Sen ator Burton Before Convention OF ' OHIO REPUBLICANS Convention Met To-day to Elect Six Del. egates to Chicago Both Sides Ex press Confidence That They Con trol Majority of Votes. ' Columbus, O., June 3. United States Senator Theodore E. Burton of Ohio, de livering the keynote speech before the Republican state convention here to-day, declared the country was confronted with a crisis far surpassing any through which it has passed in the memory of the pres ent generation. Foreshadowing manv of the tenets that will be laid down in the platform to be adopted at the coming national Repub lican convention, he urged monetary re forms, tariff revision based upon accurate information, the lowering of some duties, with due regard to adequate aid to Amer ican industry; a federal incorporation law safeguarding labor, and a workmen's compensation law, effective steps for peace among nations, and other policies, lie reviewed the high cost of living, which he traced to various causes, and declared they were not attributable to the present tariff law. "Men in high positions of public- re sponsibility," he said, "have shown d re liction in performance , of 'heir trusts. The great body of the peole, however, have been responsible in no small degree for existing evils. While harmful com binations and organizations in commerce und industry have been formed, the peo ple have stood idly by, lutfrly unable to suggest constructive legislation or provide a sufficient remedy. "Fortunately there has been a wide spread awakening.. There is a tendency to talk less about the growth of bank deposits, and more about those move ments which pert.iin directly to human happiness and welfare." .Senator Brrton deplored the spectacle of a vote uarely one-half that of the total electorate "in recent primaries in ( hio mid other states and contended for n reviv.il of interest in civic mntt?rs. He predicted that no radical changes looking toward civic betterment would follow such reforms as the primary, in it'.itive, the referendum, and certainly rot the recill. "unless there be a wide spread awakening which shall arouse the citizen to n new and abiding sense of his responsibility to the state and to the community of which he is a member." 'Certain benefits indirect in their na ture would no doubt result from the adoption of some of these changes," he added, "nor fhnll we fear that revolu tionary or destructive changes will fol low properly safeguarded methods for di rect legislation." Passing by the record of the party's earlier achievements. Senator Burton traced the course of events up to the present campaign. "The last four years of Republican control of tjie nation," he said, "have been marked with an unprecedented amount of beneficient legislation. The present administration has been marked by an unprecedented number of success ful prosecutions under the Sherman anti trust law and the most powerful corpor ations of the land have been haled into court and taught that laws must be obeyed'.' Mr. Burton reviewed the present high cost of living as a cause of prevalent discontent and exonerated the Payne A Id rich tariff law from responsibility. "The future," he said, "will marvel at the accurate thinking of demogogical appeals which have fostered the idea that the present scale of prices results from the tariff legislation of this, or any other administration." Rival Claims of Convention. Senator Burton reached here yester day and at once went into conference with Walter F. Brown, chairman of the Republican state central committee and manager of Colonel Roosevelt's campaign in the state. Following this, he held a long discussion with Lewis O. Laylin, manager of the Taft forces in the state. In a staetnent Yr. Laylin claimed that the Taft delegates will control the con vention and the election of the six dele-gates-at-large to the national convention it Chicago, with more than 400 of the 754 delegates composing the convention. Roosevelt supporters, while claiming confidence that a big six delegation fa vorable to the former president will be selected, declared tiiat in the event the convention should be controlled by Taft delegates the strength of the Roosevelt forces would probably cause the Taft iupporters to agree to a split delegation.

CRIED "DEATH TOTHEWHITES" Cuban Rebels Then Proceeded to Sack Town of Lamaya SITUATION GROWS WORSE The Capture of the Town Followed Move of Column of Regulars in Goiqg Out in' Search of the Insurgents Reports of Other Disturbances Given. Santiago, Cuba, June 3. Many refu gees from Lamaya, which was seized by the rebels on Wednesday, are arriv ing here. They report that upwards of 600 negroes entered the town, shouting "Death to the whites" and then pro ceeded to pillage and burn the stores of the town. The American naval offi cers at Guantanaroo station visited La maya after the rebels had withdrawn. The situation appears to be increasing ly grave. CUBAN INSURGENTS BURNED A TOWN Lamaya, Located Thirty Miles From Santiago, Destroyed, According to Evidence Given Out by the Federals. Havana, June 3.' General Estenoz, the real leader of the negro insurgents, has captured and burned the town of La rimva, 30 miles from Santiago. The gov ernment gave out this information last night. A column of regulars, commanded by Major Sanguily had occupied JLnmayu for the last two days, but sailed forth Saturday evening in search of insur gents. Hardly had the regulars left when Estenoz, with 800 men, attacked the handful of rurales. Citizens at tempted to oppose the insurgents, but were compelled to' retreat, losing several v.ounded. Estenoz then entered the town, which he burned and sacked. The flames were seen by Major San guily's command, which hastened back, but "found the town destroyed. The in surgent retired into the hills. Lamaya was a small place, composed of about "it houses, the inhabitants of which were mostly negroes. Encounters between the regulars and the rebels are reported to have taken place near lhiiquiri, and at other places, without decisive result. The general forward movement of the Cuban troops apparently is still deferred, pending com pletion of the disposition of the troops oidered by General Monteagudo. Reports' from the scene of hostilities sav that the rebel IcaderB continue to exact contributions of arms and money from the property owners, who are most ly foreigners, under threat of applying the torch. The government is making strong efforts to supply plantation guards, but seemingly lacks sufficient men without depleting the ranks of the troops in active service. General Mon teagudo, in a statement to the govern ment, says that within a very short time he "expects to deliver a crushing blc?w. and adds that he does not need further reinforcements. The government received a despatch hist night from San Luis stating that negroes attacked a hamlet near that place, outraged three white women and looted the stores. This apparently is within the lines of the regular troops. Rumors with a vague basis continue to be circulated of an uprising in Ha vana province. It is alleged that hard ware dealers recently sold several thous and knives, daggers and machetes to negroes. All the police and rurales in Havana are still on reserve duty. The report of the capture near Dai quiri of the Americans, Wheeler and Collister, proves to have been untrue. FOLEY RILEY. Wedding at St. Monica's Church This Morning Wedding Tour in Canada.

Riley's orchestra of four pieces were seated in one corner of the store, and from six until eight, sent forth strains of music which at tracted a large gathering. The corner that the orchestra sat in was cleverly banked with flowers and potted plants. 1 he store as it now stands is one of the best of New England and compares favorably with the cigar stores in the laiger cities.

Potted plants are set on top of the pipe and tobacco cabinets that are placed on the sides of the room. A total of fifty-nine feet of the silent salesman show cases have been installed, which are used to display a beautiful array of pipes and cigars.

Action Postponed in Lowell as Result of Yesterday's Meeting. Lowell, Mass., June 3. There was no i ger.cral strike of the mill workers of Lowell this morning. The central com. mittee of the Industrial Workers of the World, to whom authority to call such a strike was given by the various na tionalities, met yesterday and voted tO pof-tpone action. In a lengthy statement, issued after the meeting, the central committee out lines what are claimed as concessions on the part of the Merrimac Mill com pany, and continues: "With this assurance we deem it ad visable to delay the date of calling a general strike pending the outcome of the adjustment with the Merrimack Mill company. We advise that the strike! now jon at the Merrimac mill be de clared off, since the company has de clared off the lockout, with the under standing that the central committee may at any time, and at a moment's notice, call a" general strike in all of the mills a directed by vote of the mill worker, in Lowell. The committee announced last nigbl that the Merrimac company had agreed to take back as many of the strikers as there are places for them, without discrimination, and that other mill own ers had agreed to give. work to the strik ers as far as possible. No mention i irado of the misunderstanding over the payment of overtime for noon hour work which started the strike movement and which was responsible for fifty opera tives quitting work. Their number had been gradually increased, until mors than 1.000 were out last week. . Memlicrs of the Board of Trade acted a? mediators in the difficulty, and will continue their work in an effort to bring about complete harmony. Leaders of the Industrial Workers of the World claim to have 8,000 or 10,000 operatives in the city enrolled as mem bers and ready to go on strike at order of the central" committee.
