Stonecutters' Chief Disease Was Dia
cussed at Health Officers.' School'
in Burlington Addresses ,
By Several.
Burlington, Aug. 28. At the session
of the Vermont health officers' school
yesterday, the subject of "Oecrjiational
uiseases' wastaken up. rroi. ueorge
M. Kober, M. D., of Georgetown uni
versity spoke with particular reference
to,the stonecutting occupation, lie said
in part:
"Health is the chief asset of the
workingman and no greater calamity
can befall him than when his earning
capacity is impaired or arrested by rea
son ot sickness or disability, -meaning
in many instances, the utter financial
ruin of his family; It is doubtless one
of the most potent causes of poverty
aud distress. Many diseases are inci
dent to occupation and environment and
industrial ethciency, and earning pow
er can be promoted bv appropriate safe
guards and adequate protection for men,
women and children.
"In the search for the cause and pre'
vention of disease the interest , of the
wage earners have not been neglected,
indeed it may be truly said that a
special department has been . created
known as industrial hygiene or sorinl
medicine with a most complete and sat
lslactory literateur of its own. As a
result of these efforts it is known to
day that persons habitually engaged in
hard work, especially in factories and
indoors, present a greater amount of
sickness and higher mortality than per
sona more favorably situated and that
the character of the occupation influ
ences to a great extent not only the
average expectation of life, but also
the prevalence of certain diseases.
"It is known that bronchitis, pueu-
monia and tuberculosis are much more
frequent in dust inhaling .occupations
and that the sharp angular particles
of iron and stone dust, aud mixed ni-
mat and vegetable dust are more liable
to produce injury of the respiratory pas
sages than coal, flour, grain and some
other form of dust. It is also known
that workers in lead, mercury, phosphor
us and poisonous dyes suffer especially
from the injurious effects and that oc
cupations, such as mining, railroad and
those which necessitate working with or
around moving machinery involve espe
cial danger to life and limb. ,
The treatment of occupational dis
ease has been shamefully neglected and
it is only within the last two years a
few of the states have enacted laws
requiring physicians to report on them.
rorty-eight states now have laws de
signed to provide the installation of
safety devices for the prevention of in
dustrial accidents from moving machinery.
Among the occupations usually classed
as inimical to health are bleachers, book
binders, brass founders, compositors, cop
persmiths, electrotypers, stonecutters,
gas work employer, white lead workers,
potters, match workers, mirror makers
and workers in mercury, persons em
ployed in the manufacture of explosives,
firemen, rubber factory and textile
operatives. "
"It has been suggested that it may
be of interest to discuss the relation of
dusty occupations to consumption. From
knowledge of the disease we know that
while the tubercle bacilli are not ubi
quitous, they are at least widely scat
tered, the modes of invasion are also
numerous, and yet there are a large
proportion of those exposed, who do not
develop the disease. This shows that
In addition to the germ there must also
be suitable soil for its growth and de
velopment, f .
"Of all occupations under the head
stonecutting is doubtless the most dan
gerous. Those who have witnessed its
various operations realize that in spite
of new processes and employment in
the open air,- the workmen are ex
posed to a great amount of this irritat
ing dust, especialy those who operate
the pneumatic tools. A : collective in
vestigation, published in 1901,, shows
that of every 100 deaths among stone
cutters, polishers . and quarrymen, 80
were due to diseases of the lungs, in
clusive of 55 deaths from consumption.
the stnrte of, ermont has never
had an excessive mortality rate from
tuberculosis and has shown a most com
mendable decrease. The death rate has
been the greatest in the county of Wash
ington and the lowest in Essex connty.
The stonecutting industry is greatest in
Washington county.
, Some Remedies.
. "Health officers should see that the
work is carried out under proper con
ditions, should also see that the em
ployes are properly informed and will
avail themselves of the safeguards pro
vided by legal regulation. The health
officers should also see that the lodg
ing bouses and homes of these work
men are generally sanitary. Preference
should be given when practicable to the
cottage system or two story flats with
separate entrances and exits for each
family. The state should insist upon
hygienic requirements as . regards air
space, light and ventilation.
In the whole range of social better
ment and sanitation, especially in our
eirorts to combat tuberculosis, no field
affords better opportunity for - philan
thropic work than in the erection of
sanitary houses for wage earners, at
reasonable rentals, the encouragement
of cooking schools and the establishing
of model lodging and eating houses.
"While it is criminal for employers
not to provide adequate protection, it
is equally culpable on the part of opera
tives to. disregard all such preventive
"Lastly, let us insist on the purity
of the air in our homes, workshops and
towns, and in choosing a vocation for
all predisposed subjects, it is impor
tant to avoid ' occupations involving
sedentary habits and indoor work, m
pecially in a dusty atmosphere.
Barre Health Officers in Discussion.
"The address was followed by dis
sions by Dr. J. W. .Jackson, health
officer of Barre City, and E. H. Baiiey,
health officer of Barre Town. fir. Jack
son spoke of the rapid increase in the
death rate from among the stonecutters.
He said that some improvements had
been made in the conditions of the shops,
but that the rust is not taken care of.
probably due to neglect and not realizing
the importance, rather than intention.
"Dr. Bailey said that among the quar
rymen, owing to their working in the
open air, consumption was not as no
ticeable. He considers that the for
eign population . coining from different
conditions and environment have caused
a large increase in tuberculosis. He
further said that, muscular rheumatism
is a characteristic disease of the quarrymen.''

Calls the 41ouse Majority Stingy, Silly
and Boastful.
Washington, Aug. 28. Denouncing the
Democratic House managers as "Inef
ficient, inactive, nnprogressive and dis
organized," Minority Leader Mann yes
terday issued a statement criticising the
legislative record of the House. , The
refusal to make certain appropriations
he branded as "stingy and silly."
"The Democrats were forced to -!;re.
to parcels post and ar- entitled to1
no credit for it," said Representative
Mann. "They have appropriated money
in many places where it was extrava
gant. ' 'Their main work has been a
constant boasting of, what they were
going to do at the next election.
Mr. Mann said that practically every
important bill passed by the House had
previously been introduced by the Re-
fuiblicanor waa prepared by some mem
ier of the Taft administration. He said

a "farce,"

Barre Railroad Switchback, When
Train Was About to Descend.
Six flat cars of the quarry train re
turning to this citv late vesterdav aft
ernoon left the rail at the switciiback,
and it was near the eleventh hour of
tlw night before the derailed cars were
restored to tne tracks, ine train was
in charge of F'ngineer McHugho and Con
ductor Smith. They had reached the
switchback, and the Hercules engine had
been coaled and watered, and had shifted
its position to the other end of the traij
to bear the brunt of the weight in de
scending the stretch of high-graded track
below the switchback.
While the train was backing tin ti
clear the switch, the rails apparently
pread and six of the cars left the iron.
The cars were not overturned, and but
one piece of granite was dislodged from
its resting place. A crew from Barre
were sent to their aid and near the
midnight hour the train was ready to
lesume its journey to the city. ,"

Before an audience by far the largest
of any that has greeted political speak
ers of any faith iu Barre since the vislj
of Candidate Eugene V. Debs in June
Rev. ' Frascr Metzger of Randolph, the
pmrtor-politician, who fs running - for
governor of Vermont on the Progressive
,ticket, and Charles Joseph Bonaparte of
Paltimore, former United States attorney-general
and, at one time secretary
of the navy, contributed speech making
on issues both state and national in
the opera house last.evening. It was
political gathering of men from all par-;
ties and women, some of whom, it may
be assumed, hope some day to ba num
bered with one particular party that,
just now is ardently espousing the cause -of
equal suffrage. . ' ' , :
Prior to the rally, the Barre Citizens'
band marched up the street from Depot
square, playing the while, came to a halt
in front .of the opera house, and gave a'.,
short .open-air concert. Afterwards the j
musicians seated themselves in the gal-'
lery of the house and interspersed ths,
speeches with more music. . Seated on,
the stage were members of the Progress'
Rive city committee, Rev. Dr. J. V. Bar-,
nett and the speakers of the evening,
Mr. Bonaparte came to Barre from
short stay in the White mountains, and,
his adyent was delayed by a train wreck.
He took a seat pn the platform shortly
after Candidate Metzger had launched
upon his speech.
The Randolph clergyman was the first
to speak,' and he confined ; his word
largely to telling about state issues and
of how he came to affiliate with the third
party-. He declared that the tendency of
other candidates in the field to throw
mud was substantial evidence tending to
show that their parties are being licked.
Apropos this satisfying condition of af
afairs, Mr. Metzger added, "Personally'
I am pleased." ,
Mr. Bonaparte, the second speaker,
opened his remarks by recalling Vet-,
mont's peculiar and time-honored desia-;
nation as an election .barometer. Evi
dently it was his purpose to impress
upon voters of the commonwealth tha
necessity of their prefcaging a nations!
victory for the Progressive movement at
the polls nerit Tuesday. He claimed that
the contest had simmered down into s
fignt between the Democratic candidal
and Theodore Roosevelt, with the pres
ent incumbent at Washington eliminst-'
ed beyond all hope. He called upon his
hearers to . settle three things on ths
third of September. First, that William
H. taft-cannot be re-elected; second,
that he does not deserve re-election an.L
third, that the discontented people are
not willing to turn to th$ Democratic'
party as the only salvation.
Democrats Found Chance to Applaud.
A portion of Mr. Bonaparte's remarks!
was fraught with more than ordinary
significance, since it seemed to evoke in!
one section of the honse some noisy
applause that was not apparently iiw
tended for the third-term candidate. Mr.
Bonaparte conceded that the Democrat
in convention at Baltimore had nominat
ed a nran who is not looked upon witA
favor by the interests. By their selec-
tion of Wilson, he said, they are entitled
to the credit of nominating a man of-'
good character, who has shown himself
familiar with the fundamentals of good
government. This remark brought ths
applause. But the speaker added to his
remarks in a way and manner that did. 1
not invite a continuance of the applause.'
Metzger Tells Why He Is in the Party.
A. W. Allen, a prominent local Pro
gressive and tne wasnington count
member of the state committee, acted
as chairman of the rail v. Candidate
Metzger spoke substantially as followsii
"I have learned a good deal about poli-,'
tics in the last few weeks. A good manyj
flaws have been discovered in me durin 1
the present campaign, and naturally
have been quick to discover the tendency I
of other candidates to throw mud. To
me it is the best evidence yet offered
tn ahnw thev are lieinw licked.' Person
ally, I am. pleased. For my own, pattj
I have no time to waste in throwing
mud. Other than for public service. I,
could never find any reason for publls
office. If the Progressive party has oth-j
er reasons, it is certainly outstripped by
the Republican party, which has throw
the governorship into the public mart
to be sold to the highest bidder. (
"We hear of a great many issues hi
the campaign, but allow me to state my)
belief that the only issue is that of
principle. Our slogan is 'Let the people
Vule,' and if we are to retain our govern-,
ment to-day in its position at the fore,
we must profit by the experiences of
history. Our slogan is not -a catchword .
or an appeal to passion or sentiment.'
It simply embodies the lesson wnicit we
hould have learned from history. Hive
the people ruled ! Look at my native
state of Xew York. It is some years
since I have resided in the F)mpire stats!
and vet I am fannliar with its evil
growth. Its politics may be spelled in
one word Barnes. And down through j
the minor expressions' of . political i
thought, so far as the Republican party ,
concerned, it still lias lor its para-f
mount influence that same Barnes. Thel
tuation is true of many other great,
"With reference to the Democratic
party in Xew ork, the situation is
even worse, and it fairly makes me blush
to think that I have been compelled iti;
the past to stsnd with my Republican
colleagues and stand for snch coalitions.
Ruek of its vice-ridden cities stands!
Tammany nall.'and until its evil influ-j
ence is overcome, the house-cleaning can
not be brought to pass. Ihe will of.
the interests with their swollen fortune
