"In the exercise of my prerogative as governor, I have paroled to date 2-1U prisoners. Of these 117 have been pa roled from the state prison at Windsor, 14 from the house of correction at Rut land, and 22 from the different county jails. Since the establishment of a state commission on probation, the executive department has endeavored in every way to co-operate, and at present 1 am send ing the secretary of this commission monthly reports giving the names of the prisoners paroled, the date of expiration of their maximum sentence, their last known residence and the name of the probation officer to whom they report. These paroled prisoners, as a rule, have reported very well. j think this custom of paroling at the expiration of the minimum sentence, where the prisoner's conduct has been good, is a very excellent one, and I ufter which Chief Judge Howell digued as a witness.

Commending the advance which has been made n road making. Gov. Mead urged further outlay of monej' to con tinue and increase the work. GOV. MEAD'S ADDRESS. Points Out Progress and Recommends for the Next Term. Gov. Mead expressed the belief that luring the two years satisfactory results ts to educational and agricultural life ind the lietterment of roads had been (ttained. The greatest gain of all, he thought, nd been along educational lines, due fliicfly to the "strong and progressive lieasures passed by the general assem bly of 1910." He referred to modifica tion of existing school laws, expansion f the free advanced instruction law, pising the school age to sixteen years, jtrengthening of the child labor law anil raking school attendance laws more op tative; ilso permissory laws, such as lllowing toans to pension teachers, pro liding for medical inspection of school fiildren and authorizing the state board if education to purchase the normal rhool property at Castleton and to lease lie normal school building at Johnson. I Other features of advanced school leg islation ar: (11 an appropriation for school for the deaf, dumb and blind at Explains His Tax Veto. In recommending changes in tax laws to secure greater equality, Gov. Mead ex plained his veto of a tax measure in th closing hours of the last session, as fol lows: "No subject with which you have to deal is of larger importance than a revl- sion of our present system of taxation. At the last session a bill came to me for my signature, which I was obliged to withhold. The object of the measure had my entire approval, but the bill itself was crude and it seemed obvious would bo impotent to accomplish its tin derstood purpose. It had passed both legislative branches in the closing hours ot the session and came to me at a tune when my department was rushed to the limit of its capacity. Proper considera tion was absolutely impossible, and two courses only were open to me, one to summon back legislators who had re turned to their homes and hold the leg islature until needed corrections could be made, and the other to exercise my right of veto. Having in mind that the session had then been unduly pro longed, and that to reform the measure would cause the state many thousand dollars expense, as well as prove a hard ship to the members who had then left the capital, I pursued the course which economy, and as it then and now seems to me, the interests of our people re quired." Labor Legislation. Gov. Mead said the wageworkers had called for a ten-dollar exemption law and ought to have it. In fact, in lalior legislation, "Vermont lias been progres sive in this respect, but not sufficiently so." In considering strikes, (Jov.

Mill Hands Discharged Are Advised to Stay Out Quietly, Lawrence, Mas., Oct. 3. Action re garding another strike of textile mill operative was deferred last night at a meeting of the central committee of the Industrial Workers of the World. The committee considered the case of opera tives alleged to have been discharged from the mills because of participation in last Monday's "protest" atrike, and advised them to stay out quietly. William D. Haywood, the International Workers of the World organiser, who returned here laat night from the trial of Ettor, Giovarmitti and Caruso at Salem, said after a conference with oth er leaders of bis organization: "The mill owners in Lawrence are now on strike against the operatives whom they have refused to take back into the mills. The I. W, W. will have to discuss means to fight thia kind of a strike. I shall probably be in the vicinity for two weeks, and I snail give much of my per nonal attention to this matter." WAS ILL THREE WEEKS. A few Washington county cases were argued in Vermont suprehie court just prior to adjournment for the day late yesterday, that of Marion B. Thorn worth vs. A. N.

The death of Mrs. Louisa Helminu Johnson, wife of Charles G. Johnson, oc curred at ber borne on the Merchant street"' extension tbia morning at ? O'clock, after an illnes of three weeks. Besides her husband, she leaves one daughter, Mrs. Dollv Malloy of Boston, and four ' eons, ViIliam Johnson of Northfield, John Johnson of Waterbnrv, Albert and Victor Johnson of this citv. Louisa Helmina (Fulton) Johnson w3 born in Gotenburg, Sweden, July 5, 18ft t. Forty years ago she came to Montreal, P. Q to reside and her marriage to Mr. Johnson took place in that city in 1882. With her huband, she came to Barre nd had made her In Form of Building and Loan Associa tion Were Discussed. Before an audience of fifty business and professional men, comprised largely, if not altogether, of Board of Trade members, in the hall in the Itoyce-Rob-inson block last evening, C. W. Brown- ell of Burlington spoke for nearly an hour on building and loan associations with reference more locally to an organ ization of the nature indicated which nourishes in the Queen city at the pres ent time. Mr. Biowncll came to Barre at the behest of the Bonrd of Trade, and it.wiis President Henry A. Phelps of that board who introduced the speaker shortly after S o'clock. Mr. Brownell's remarks occasioned much interest and it is not unlikely that more tangible steps toward organizing" an association for building loans will be taken in tlie near future, Mrs. Brownell declared at the outset that the building and loan association aimed primarily to promote home build ing and not to mako money or produce incomes. Ho maintained thnn any city the sie of Barre, smaller or larger, in fact every . community should interest itself in on association of this .haracter. in many towns where tiio plun ban been successfully tried out. he asserted, the moving spirits in its nliiiinistration were bankers or men interestc.il in banks, a fact which proves conclusively that its operation hi no way conflicts with the banking business. The loan association doesn't place the banker at any disadvantage, for the reason that the kind of securities held by the or ganization arc not of the character usually accepted by banks. The speaker cited authority on loan association projects to show that every town of normal growth is in need ot living quarters for its inhabitants and stated that the era of distant land booms is on the wane. Kvery move that tends to make homes lietter and more secure is a move in the right direction. In the I'nited States alone, said the speaker, these associations number over 2,00,000 members possessing over $1, 000.000 in assets. Its important posi tion in the development of municipali ties lias become so significant in recent years, that the French government only lately sent an envoy to America to study' its operation in American cities and towns. In the course of his remarks, the speaker referred to the possibilities of loan association in Vermont and took occasion to remind his hearers that the double taxation system tended to act a a slight drawback, although it did not prevent the successful operation of this method of building homes. The plan, he asserted, is highly feasible in spite of the taxation law. Mr. Brownell pro duced figures to show how a thrifty man could own his own home in twelve years under the loan system. Burlington's as sociation, he explained, had been in ex istence since 1878 and although dormant from that time until 18(15, it had been an important factor in the development of the city. The expenses of operating, he claimed rarely exceeded $.V0 and much of this could be paid by levying of small fines on delinquent payments. In closing, the speaker urged his hear ers to consider the project from every angle, reminding them that the building and loan association plan is preaching the gospel of thrift and that it has for Its underlying principle the promotion of good citizenship. An informal discus sion of the plan followed Mr. Brownell's remarks.

Peter Burnell was walking lieside the track, when he heard someone moaning. He investigated and in the District of Columbia, which non payment is alleged to constitute an en cumbrance on the land. Attorney E. M. Harvey for the de fendant argued that the plaintiff's plea was defective in not stating when the taxes were due, claiming that the taxes did not constitute an encumbrance until they were due. The defendant had agreed to pay them if they were at tained by the court, and they have been sustained. H. C. Shurtleff for the plaintiff argued that the taxes should have been paid when sustained by the court, and that as they were not paid they are an en cumbrance. Many technical points were argued by both S'des. In Jane 1 5. howler, admx., vs. ..McDon ald, Cutler & Co. for damage for death of the plaintiff's husband on the defend ant company's quarry, the attorney for the firm claimed new evidence was useil in this case, which has been before the court since 100(1. The attorney for the plaintiff claimed the evidence was identi cally the same. The first county court i verdict was for the plaintiff in the sum of (3,000, reversed and remanded in 1900.
