The second indictment named Dennis J. Collins, a dog fancier of Cam bridge,, who was arrested yesterday, charged with having transported dyna mite unlawfully. It is understood that Wood will be arraigned next Tuesday. He did not np pear disturbed during the proceedings. He said: "Of course 1 am greatly sur- Frised by the action of the grand jury, cannot conceive what information could have lieen presented to the jurors which in any way connected me with the so called dynamite plit. I certainly had no connection with it, and thi fact will be fully established at the proper time to the" satisfaction of the public and even the district attorney. 'Beyond this I have nothing to say." The indictment, containing five counta. charged Wood, Collins and a third man. whose name is withheld, With conspiring with John J. Breen and Ernest W. Pit man to place explosives in three houses in Lawrence, where strikers were ac customed to assemble. The indictment charges that the defendants placed the dynamite with intent to falsely impute to the strikers the crime of having in their possession explosives for the pur pose of using them unlawfully to in jure mill property and Owners and opera tives, i Dynamite Purchased of Quarry Owner. It was learned yesterday that Ernest W. Pitman, whose suicide at his Law rence home early Tuesday morning wa due to bis connection with the plot to discredit the mill operatives, purchased dynamite last January from William II, Rice, who owns a granite quarry in East Milton. Rice lives at 135 Quarry street, East Milton, and has told" bis story to the grand jury.

Prizes, consisting of golf club ''When we get together on'the heav enly shore, there will be no more wolf at the cabin door." To the stirring strains of this old-time ballad, Captain Charles H, Stanley of California, hero of a hundred political gatherings, opened the i'rolubitionist rally in the opera hoiwe last evening before an audiefice that numbered a hundred people. Eu gene W. Chafin of Tucson, Ariz., who heads the pary s national ticket, C. r. Smith of Morrisville, master of the state, grange and Prohibitionist guberna torial candidate, and Matthew; E. O'Bri en, who was drafted at Montpelier ia the afternoon while crossing the state for a ' strenuous campaign in Maine, spoke afterwards on state and national issues with reference to the Prohibition ist platform. The crowd was slow a-coming, and the hour of 8:30 had been registered before Fred L. Page, an indefatigable worker in local temperance circles, led the galaxy of speakers and the captain to their seats on the stage. With Can didates Chartn and Smith, were Rev. Elmer F. Newell, pastor of the Hedding Methodist church, Mr. O'Brien and Dr. L. W. Sanford of Montpelier, a former candidate for governor on the Prohibi tion ticket. The campaign singer from California was the first whom Chairman Page called upon to contribute toward the success vf the rally.- It has been said for the captain that he is the only man in the world, who writes all he sings and singi all he writes. His picturesque humor was conveyed to the audience seemingly by a subtle system of fine wires as he stepped into sight. The moment Chsir man Page gave the word, the singer dropped his hat and was off on a tuneful campaign melody, entitled "I Am Serving the Lord in My Own Weak Way." Cap tain Stanley got into the good graces of the crowd and was responsible for its good humor throughout the rally. For three momenta he dispensed a con siderable lot of campaign thunder, and in the next second he was sliding easily into one of his tuneful songs. Presently he was imitating Col. T- R., with only ""slouch" hat glasses and broad smile characteristic of the Oyster Bay can didate. ,',.;!'-, Clement F. Smith of Morrisville was greeted with a round of applause as he came forward to speak. In introducing him. Chairman Page said: "We have with us to-night the man who will be the next governor of Vermont if he gets a majority of votes." The chairman's witticism was received with a good-natured laugh. Candidate Smith said that Vermont farmers had for years been wondering', when the time would coma for them to cease paying more than their share of the taxes. He advocated the exemption of taxes on mortgages. Declaring that the Republican party was responsible for the present conditions, he continued by telling of the report of the special commission appointed to con sider tax revisions four years ago. At that time, he claimed, the commis sion report cd that the flat rate on in tangibles and the abolishing of offsets would do away with the evils of double taxation. "We believe that this is class legislation." sid the speaker. Referring to the income tax amendment, sir. Smith recalled that a Barre man in the Senate of 1010 advocated the adoption of the amendment. He hadn't noticed where he had advocated the same measure in any of his campaign speeches this year. The Prohibitionist candidate believed that Vermont should have this eonstitu tional amendment, but he afterwards declared his belief that pressure from outside the state had been brought to militate against its passage in the legis lnture. It is legislation which million aires do not, eem to favor, said Mr. Smith, and somehow tax legishtien hi Vermont always seems to favor the money men. ermont farmers, asking for bread, have received only a stone. O'Brien Said Metzger'g Gone Astray. AtJI o'clock. Chairman Page introduced Matthew E. O'Brien, who, he said, had been persuaded to switch,- from his trip out of Maine to come to Barre for the evening. .Mr. iage intimated tha-t the speaker . might be on hand Saturday morning to address the same crowd that would gather to near Kooseveit. Air Jt O'Brien spoke only briefly, but he had bundle of statements that seemed to take well with the crowd. He asserted that the man who heads the "Teddv" ticket in Vermont has gone astray. And while dwelling upon the topic of Bull Moose in general.-he told of persuading the platform committee at the Progres sive convention in Chicago to insert an anti-liquor plank. He contended that the committee had been swayed by his logic and that the plank was in a fair way to become a portion of the platform until, ns he said, Roosevelt came alon and ordered it stricken from among the chosen. "The convention, as I sized it up." said Mr. O'Brien, "was composed of a lot of political idolaters worshiping a false god, who will lead them to perdition rather than to salvation., A full, complete and comprehensive phtform for the party,' expressing its principles and its excuse for existence, should have read: 'We favor making the , will of Theodore Roosevelt the supreme law of the land." The Presidential Candidate. WTien Candidate Chafin came to the front around 9:30 o'clock, he was greeted by about all the applause the audience could summon. Mr. Chafin said he wa something of a Vermonter himself, his parents having at one time lived in Windsor county, while hi mother-in-law formerly lived in Montpelier. Hi ap the crowd feel good, for loud handclap ping marked his reference to relation ship. .:'-:' The speaker alternately whacked, and whacked hard, the Republican, Demo cratic and Progressive parties for nearly half , the course of his argument. He contended, that the Bull Moose organiza tion owed all of its important planks to the Prohibition platform, and he gave statistics to show how issues claimed to be new and 'Original with that party were first enunciated by the Prohibition ifts some forty years ago. Even the Socialists gathered in the woman 'suf frage plank after the temperance people had -used it for over thirty years. Mr. Chafin seconded the contention of , the previous speaker that the ' Progressive convention at Chicago consisted of many political idolaters worshiping a false god. who is to lead them on to destruction. A large portion of the presidential nominee's remarks had to do with the white slave traffic and its relation to the liquor problem. He . expressed his belief that old-line parties as well ai new ones omitted to insert planks in tt.eir platforms relating to this evil be cause of the danger of losing votes.' He otlered $100 to any Sabbath school in the city if any one in the audience would go to Theodore Roosevelt when he comes to Barre Saturday, ask him why the omission occurred, and receive a satis factory- answer.- Mr. Chafin intimated that executives at Washington, whom he called by name, had knowingly al lowed places of vicious character to exist within a short distance- from the capital during their administrations. Before closing. Mr. Chafin said thai the liquor traffic is the real cause of the high cost of living, and not only the cause of this cost, but of practically all other problems. .He claimed that crime was only an off-shoot and that the vice fathered all kinds of poverty and made old-age pensions necessary. He insisted that conservation of humanity is the great underlying issue. Chafin Goes to New Hampshire. - Mr. Chafin left to-day for New Hamp shire, where he will open "an arduous campaign at oodsville. l andidate Cha fin is devoting considerable time to u swing around New Lngtand .this vear. and if the party vote is doubled this year, as Prohibition leaders predict, the men behind the movement say that the eastern coast states must furnish some of the votes. Mr. O'Brien left to-day for orthneld and Randolph, accompa nied by Capt. Stanley, the campiign singer. Mr. O'Brien will return to Barre to remain until after election day.' while the Captain will join Candidate Chafin in New Hampshire. : VOTING LIST BEATS CORD 2,111 Will Have Franchise IrT Barre Next Tuesday BEING AN INCREASE.
