HARD HITTING AT RIGHT TIME Enabled Barre A. C. to Win 5 to 2 Over Berlin, N. H., Team LOCALS TRIED NEW PITCHER Gay, a Lefthander, Although Inclined to Be Wild at Certain Stages, Pitched a " Creditable Game and Was Well " ' Supported by His Team. Mood's Pills on re constipation, biliousness and all liver Ills. Do not gripe or Irritate. 25c Frigid zephyrs that blew, across thf seminary campus 'yesterday afternoon chilled nearly 300 spectators to the mar row, while the Barre Athletic club won in its first game of the series with th Berlin (X. H.) A." C. The .tabulate.! score recorded a 5 to 2 win for the fast traveling Barre bunch. The freezing temperature did not in the least detract from the zeal of the players, who per formed as creditably att if -the weather were more, suitable for baeballr The game was of added- interest to the Barre following. du- to the initial ap pearance in a. Barre uniform of Gay, the ! young Randolph ' southpaw. , Tlie rangy youngster has all the earmarks of ' star and yesterday, although a trifle (wild, held the hard-hitting' New llamp ishire lads at bay, but four hits being corraled off his delivery, , v, i The second inning staged the braefj of runs scored by his opponents when,! with' the bases full, a clean single toi center by Munson produced the counters. Gay pulled out of this situation by tan ning McPherson and compelling Bracket t to hit weakly to second. J-ive innings caw men on the hit cushion, but the jxwtsider on each occasion pulled' out safely. His wildness asssured the Berlin jlads the first station seven times. The manager of the visiting team per mitted Palmer, an old Burlington high School pitcher, to appear on the hillock. , JHe passed through the first inning, but kin the second chapter his desire to rise jto the dizzy heights rewarded him with la place on the. bench. Charles Beruicr, (well known in White mountain summer baseball circles, took up the reins, when Jone man had "counted; one man had been retired and the hassocks were all popu lated. His start was pyrotechnic. Th first two ash wielders fell before his runerring.spitball. The next inning was Viot so blissful. The Barre chmters con jcentrated its forces and bombarded for three registrations. After that the al leged big leaguer was not a proposition "of difficult solution. - f The afternoon's entertainment was in terspersed with brilliant fielding stunt. A couple of clever double plays were executed, one by the Barre lads and the jother by the visitors. The Berlin outfit (pulled off its play of double fatality in Ithe opening session. Davidson was on first and W. Johnston rapped a seething grounder to second base territory.' Vauce scooped the ball, tagging Davis en hit way to second, and then heaved the ball to first for the completion of the play, ,The two-ply putout by the local tearn 'Came in the last inning and dispelled all hopes of the visiting team registering. Harris, who was batting for Towers, was ticketed. Vance then rapped a lon,r. Skier to AlcKenzie. McKenzie backed lip and made a sensational catch of the ball, falling backwards after catching the ball. Harris stood halfway down the cinder path and slowly trotted back to first. Oblivious of the ball being re turned to itch him off first, he was given the surprise of his existence when he saw the ball resting in Stuart's hands. ( In the second inning R. Johnston waj given free transportation to first bass and took second oij a .wild pitch. He scored from the muddler lack on .Stuart's hit to center. With none out, Barre was unable to count further in this sessiorj. Vance was passed in the third inning. Bernier breezed. Wilbur, attempting t sacrifice, scratched a hit. Pease wa ticketed, filling the bases. Munson then was the man of the moment with a safe crack to center.,, No more scoring. Davidson, opening the third inning with a single to center, reached second when Brackett fumbled W. Johnston's grounder; Old Man Johnston then brought the crowd to' its feet with l three-ply wallop to left center.' .Robert reached the terminal on "Bill" Stuart's two-bngger into center. Bernier tight cned and the next three batters sue cumbed to the winds. Barre's final count' er was made in the sixth session. Kute started it with a two-base hit into the maple grove and finished the rounds on W. Johntson's single over third base. The score: ' . Barre A. C.

The Berlin aggregation is undoubtedly one of the best baseball turnouts that has been seen in the city this season. In the Berlin line-up are faces of sev eral Burlington lads. Munson, the old St. Michael college pitcher, hails from the Queen City. Captain Hamilton, the backstop, was instructed in the elements of baseball at Burlington high school, having caught for the school team tw seasons. Palmer, the southpaw, who startel yesterday's game, is well known in the state through his affiliation with Burlington high school. Powers, the cen ter fielder, is another former Burlington high man. Norman, who wanned a place on the resting settee, is a Chittenden county product, claiming the metropolis of the state as his residence. Brackett, the four-eyed shortstop of the Berlin aggregation, is said to nave played of late years on the Massachu setts Aggies. j Jack Davidson plaved a 'strong game at second base for the local nine. He was a power with the ash, rapping out three clean hits in the first three sallies at the plate. "Bill Stuart played a clever game a first. He pulled in a couple of difficult one-handed catches ot wretched throws He is a great improvement over the other candidates that have been trying tneir fortunes with the position this year. Fowlie's throwing arm was slightly out of order yesterday. The iron whip was unable to locate the pilfering base runners yesterday. 000 and NATIONAL LEAGUE. YESTERDAY'S RESULTS.

York, Aug. 28. Far and away the most encouraging information that has reached Republican headquarters s'nee the campaign began are the reports from New York, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio mid other pivotal states, that the third term candidate and his party are draw ing almost as many adherents from the democrats as from the Republicans. This is said to be particularly true of New York and if this is even approxi mately true- it means that President Taft will carry the Empire state iii No vember by a substantia! majority, Taft polled 870,070 votes in flew lorlc in 1908 to Bryan's 667,468, his plurality in the state being 202,602. Here is a wide margin, , in favor of the " Republic ns. Thus far the polls made by the Repub licans show that the defections to Roose velt outside of those who weYe prominent in the Bull Moose movement prior to the Chicago convention,; have been largely among the workingmen who are attract ed by many planks in the platform of the new party. Bryan polled the larger part of this vote in his campaigns; an J it is believed that Roosevelt, rather than ilson will appeal to them in Novem ber. . , . In Illinois the situation, according ta Chairman Hilles reports, is improving every day. I he opposition of the Chi cago candidate for governor has resulted in a serious split in the Roosevelt forces, The Tribune is the mainstay of Colonel Roosevelt in the middle West, but has always been a warm supporter of Gov ernor Deneen; they are supporting Ol. Roosevelt for president, but Deneen for the governorship. J he suppport of the one to a large extent negatives the effect of the support of the other. ax-Gov ernor Yates of Illinois stopped here on his way to campaign for the Kepub licans in Vermont and supplemented the statements received bv Chairman Hilles regarding the brighter outlook in Illinois He agreed that the refusal of The Trib une to obey Colonel Roosevelt's order that Governor Deneen must be punished with defeat for declining to leave the Republican party has proved a serious blow to the cause of the third-term party in that state. From Ohio come assurances that for every Republican vote vthat" Roosevelt gets Taft will get the rote tff a Harmon Democrat. Bryan a dictation of W 11- son's nomination at Baltimore, it is said, will mean the loes of many a Democratic vote in Ohio to the Republicans. The defection of Walter F. Brown to the third party will, in the Judgment of th Republican managers, hold in the Repub lican party many progressive Republi cans in northern Ohio who have been fighting Brown for vcars as the boss of the state. Senator La toilette has con siderable strength in the northern coun ties and the weight of his influence will be thrown against Roosevelt, not only there but throughout the West. At the meeting of the advisory com mittee yesterday, reports were received from Indiana that the third party rn that state will run a poor third. Sen ator Beveridge is admittedly a good deal stronger outside of the state than in; he was refused a re-election to the Sen ate onlv two years afjo. The third party there is centering its fight on the "bosses," and Tom Taggart, the most notorious boss in the state, is a Demo crat. The expectation is that the third party may get as many Democratic as Republican votes for the progressive Democrats in the state regard Marshall, the vice-presidential candidate, as any thing but progressive; be haa denounced the initiative, referendum and recall and he and Tom Taggart have been close allies.

Admission - - - 25 cents nn8SSwSnSSUS to President Taft in the primaries be cannot be defeated until Barnes is over thrown, and still the citizens of that state are hanging back beet use of party loyalty. "My father war a Republican and X have been a Republican for years. But when my party badge means more to me than my country and the stars and stripes, then my case is confessedly hopeless. I am first a citizen and tbeu a party man. Here in Vermont condi tions are not quite so nasty, perhaps as elsewhere. I was a delegate to the Republican state convention in Burling ton and went there elected by progres sive men. It was understood by the men who sent me there that I was tD assist in forwarding progressive features in the platform. It had been previously agreed that 'a primaries plank should be inserted in the tentative platform, snd when I reached Burlington I found it ripped out. I made a row, beeauss I felt that the Roosevelt men had been in the majority in the previous conven tions and that the large majority of the people favored this plank. The commit tee was in closed session, and I was unable to get a hearing. It was be cause the men in power were afraid theyi would lose their power if the primary plank were to be inserted and after wards fulfilled. "I told theirf at that timethat if tfu chance presented itself I would put my ideas before the, people, lhe time has now come to oppose these vested inter ests and by working for the people we are going to justify our only existence as a party. I understand that a Barre audience was enlightened the other night bout myself, that it waa led to believe that I am a nobodv. AH right; but 1 am going to be heard. I am finding that the woods are full of bull moose. "It has been said that we have no ipsues in Vermont, but let me declare that every word of the national Pro gressive platform means sometmng to the people of Vermont and that the doc ument contains some very live issues U be applied right here in our own state. Big business is an octopus that is send ing its tentacles down into every man, down into every man's home and his fireside. Ami the only thing to do wit big business is to control it. Wlien you hsve forces that will check the depreda tions of big moneyed interests, you will be emancipated. Back of the movement which aims to furnish these agencies of combat is a man of bigness and red blood. I speak of Theodore Roosevelt, j "I have not time to discuss many state issues, but take for eximple that of the tax question. Here is a young! man who desires to borrow fS.noo for the purchase of a farm. Xo individual can lend it to him, because our present laws discriminate in favor of banks and loan associations. Eighty per cent, of bank deposits in this state go out be yond the borders. Xew York capital ists are buying up the water power priv ileges in northern and southern Ver mont. Something's wrong. Let us our selves develop that which is rightfully owned by the people. Here is a state issue which you may well give due consideration. "We are to believe in a better Ver mont, better roads, etc. We have been believing in the promises of other par ties, but have they been fulfilled? This Progressive movement is a crusade, and t is up to us to act. e must by our individual votes lay the foundation for a great and redeemed nation, so thai our children will rise up and call us blessed. Think ii these thincs in the a - i j : . u - n.--1 i i: 1 of next Tuesday. Bonaparte Counted Taft Out Former- Attorney-General Bonapart spoke for nearly an hour along lines which , tended to emphasize the impor tance of registering the right kind of vote at the polls next I uesday. tie said in part: "Vermont's position as a po litical barometer for the past 50 years 1 peculiar, but Important. This year its election should show Taft'e chances for re-election are no greater than mine. The men who assisted in his so-called nomination at Chicago have conceded he win vacate the White House after March 4. The lesson was brought homt fore the convention. Votes for Taft ia Xovember are votes thrown away; sp I urge upon you the necessity of voting Tuesday in a manner that will count. It is a momentous issue; not many, but one, which includes many. It will de cide whether the people of the United States own themselves and their coun try, or whether they themselves and the country are owned by a email number of men known as bosses, who in turn are owned by men of wealth. Is it to be a government of and by and for the peo ple, or a government of the people, oy the bosses and for the interests? I have no aversion to riches. I would be rich myself if the right opportunity presented itself. But I am unalterably opposed to special rights that now gn with wealth. The Standard Oil Co. and the American Tobacco Co. have rights so far as the citizenship of the few men who control them is concerned, but no further. According to our American idea, the people have the right to rule. They may make mistakes, but it is they who are to be held accountable for their errors, and it is they who are to profit by them. But thev shouldn't be made to pay for the mistakes of others. It is a question of whether the people will make laws to govern their own happi ness and welfare or delegate this im portant duty to the few. "Within a few days Roosevelt has been attacked by the .Standard Oil Co,, which he prosecuted while in office. The issue now is whether the man whom the oil trust does not want shall become president. The best recommendation vi candidate can furnish the people is the opposition of these big trusts." Mere ine speaKer sniiiea ins une oi attack to a description of the methods which the oil trust employs in accom plishing its ends. He told of how it knowingly sold inferior oil in Oklahoma and of the fearful consequences that re suited from an explosion caused by the presence of gasoline in the oil. fie said that the cases cited were common prop erty and mentioned them simply to show up the combine s reputation. Turning to the Democratic partv, Mr. Bonaparte said: "Here in Vermont th Democratic party is in a hopeless mi noritv. Perhaps it is honest, for often times parties can retain their virtues only while they are outnumbered by larger parties. But the machines within the Democratic ranks are just as per nicious and dangerous as within the Re publican fold. It is true that the Dem ocrats nominated for their president at Baltimore a good man,, not looked upoa with favor by the interests. But his nomination was brought about through fear of Theodore Roosevelt: With that candidate, however, they are entitled to credit for nominating a good man, whi haa shown himself familiar with ths fundamentals of good government. It elected, he will be as a clean collar oii a dirty shirt, a stool pigeon, and hi hands will be tied. As nearly as will hi possible, he ' will be impotent to effect the deliverance of the people. "In closing, I ask you to go to your state election with the intention of prov ing three things: First, that Taft can not be re-elected; second, that he doesn't deserve a re-election ; third, to show that a change from the Republican to Demo cratic'rule would be dangerous. You should vote for the ticket that scares away the crooks and for the man whom the crooks are praying will be defeated. Remember the rule of the people."
