Counsel on both aides j completed their appeal yesterday and the jury was charged by Justice Go IT this morning. Becker set almost expressionless throughout the day, hearing himself characterized by his counsel as the vic tim of conspiracy hatched by Jack Rose, and by Assistant District Attorney Moss the "Brain behind the gunmen, nith'a tremendous motive for murder." The defense centered its attack almost wholly on Rose's testimony, which At torney Melntyre denounced as unworthy of belief. Melntyre summed up the declaration that District Attorney Whit man was "actuated by ambition" and had "fathered a prosecution framed up by crooks." Assistant District Attorney Mo ac cused Melntyre of misrepresenting the evidence to the jury end Melntyre shook his fist in Moss's face and denied the 'charge. Moss, continuing, said the defense had failed to introduce proof that a conspir acy against Becker existed, answering Melntyre s declaration that the four gunmen might go free even if Becker were convicted. Moss said: "Have no fear, you will never meet these four men on Broadway. You needn't he afraid of meeting Rose, Webber or Vallon there, either, after the trinl is over. Their friends, the gunmen of the underworld, will take care of that."

ETTOR IN FRONT RANK OF RIOTERS SAYS WITNESSES State Calls Police to Tell of Armed Men in Mobs and of Speeches In citing Them to Violence. Salem, Mass., Oct. 24. Police Inspect or John J. Kelliher of Lawrence yester day testified at the Ettor trial he had been convinced on the night of January 2 that the time had tome for the police to draw their revolvers, but he did not do so. and knew no noliceman who fired n shot during the outbreak which re suited in the killing of the Lopir.zo wom an ami .wounding of Policeman Benoit. . Kelliher told how the police were pelt ed with ice and" used clubs and black jacks to drive back the resistant men. His cross-examination led up to the killing of the woman, but no testimony was taken regarding the actual shooting, . Twenty-seven witnesses for the prose cution were on the stand yesterday, tes tifying concerning the riots of January Z. George O. Berthal, a Lawrence police man, continued his testimony yester day. Berthal said that in the crowd of strik; ers who paraded the streets of Lawrence on the day of the fatal riot he recog nized many persons whom he had pre viously seen on the Lawrence common, listening to an address by the defend ant, Giovannitti. Giovannitti. he said, spoke in Italian and aroused his au ditors to many outbursts of applause. Policeman William Caffrey gave fur ther testimony of the stoning of street ears and assaults upon passengers on the morning of January 2. During these outbreaks before daylight. Caffrey said he saw the defendant, Ettor, in the street. "Ettor was followed by several hun dred strikers," said Caffrey. "They marched in lines extending across the street; then Ettor was in the center of the first line. They were howling and hissing at the police." Thomas F .McCarthy, a police ser geant, testified that he saw E. Gianinni and Loreni! Maronev, members of the textile strike committee, in the crowd w hich attacked the woolen mill gates Tan. 15. Both made speeches, he said, Just before the rush upon the gates. The witness also described assaults upon per sons trying to go to work and his trou ble in making arrests. 'When I arrested an Italian for knock ing a man down Jan. 20," said Mc Carthy, "the crowd tried to rescue him. I called for help from other officers as the crowd closed in on me. Thev .had been tugging at the prisoner, trying to pull him from me, and had torn his coat to shreds before other officers drove them back." New York, Oct. 24. President Taft's plan to close bis season at the summer White House and return to Washington at the end of this week is due to his desire to Tie in closer touch with the campaign. There will be no change in managers; but the president is to assist in plans and offer suggestions. The mem bers of the cabinet will have an active part in the campaign up to the end; Mr. Wickersham has gone to Ohio to discuss trusts and may explain more at length why certain former Republicans, who do not like the enforcement of the Sherman law, are now Bull Moose leaders. The campaign will be against Governor Wil son, whom the Republican leaders be lieve is the president's real opponent. Now that the campaign is nearing the end, the national committee are count ing the cash cost of advertising, postage, special trains and other agencies for spreading the light atlong the people. The Democrats estimate expenses since July 1 at about 550,(mm, of which wan,. 0(10 has been for publicity, and publicity covers a multitude of measures. It is interesting to know that Republicans and Democrats are spending 1(500 a day for postage and between 'SoO and 9100 a day for telegrams. BEVERIDGE SENT BACK $57,000. Returned That Sum in His Campaign in 1904. Washington, Oct. 24. Senator Bever- idtre returned campaign contributions amounting to $57,000 sent him by George W, Perkins, Edward L. McLean and Gif ford Pinchot, according to three wit nesses yesterday before the Senate cam. paign contributions committee. Perkins, when examined by the com mittee, declared he could remember send ing only $10,000 to Beveridge, which was returned; but yesterday's testimony indicated that Beveridge received and re turned three $10,000 checks. Besides $23,000 was received and returned to McLean, Beveridge's cousin, and either $2..iO0 or $3,000 to Pinchot. , The witnesses were Lars A. Wnit- comb, who had a law office with Bever- idcre in 1004; John F. Hayes, formerly Beveridge's private secretary; and Leo pold G. Rothschild, who was on the In diana Republican executive committee in 1904. GOVERNOR WILSON WAITING. His Arrangements for Speaking Not to Be Changed Until Roosevelt Recovers Princeton, N. J., Oct. 24. Governor Wood row Wilson expected to be busy all day on his correspondence. The gov ernor said he had no announcement to make as yet with regard to speaking engagements. I am merely waiting for Colonel Roosevelt's recovery," he said to-day. The news that Colonel Roose velt hoped to speak in New York on October 30 strengthened one belief here that the governor would begin speaking a .day or two before that. William Jen nings Bryan sent the governor a note savins he would be unable to stop here on bis way from Philadelphia because, the itinerary called for close connections elsewhere. London, Oct. 24.- Heavy fighting is proceeding on every side of the Balkan peninsula and in competent quarters there is an inclination to the belief that the conflicts are much more seri ous than ollicial reports would indi cate. While the allied armies of Bulgaria, Servia, Montenegro and Greece have doubtless had the best of the prelim inary skirmishes and continue to take small Turkish fortresses and villages, some doubt still exists as to which side will be most successful in the maiu theatre of the war. Both Turks and Bulgarians claim to be advancing in the vicinity of Adriano ple, and the public is left to choose for itself between the varied statements giv en in the official reports, as all inde pendent observers, correspondents and i military attaches are being kept in the rear. Everything seems to indicate, however, that the Bulgarians have deployed the bulk of their main army from the Musta pha Pasha-Adrianople line to the Jum-bala-Kirk-Kilesseh line, and are attack ing the Turkish front between the last named place and Adrianople, while en veloping the extreme Turkish' right to the east of Kirk-Kilisseh. From this latter point reports have reached here of serious battles the de tails of which, however,, are withheld. The Servians, who are more free with news about their operations, continue their advance. One of their armies has taken the town of Prishtina and another is at the gates of Kumanova, which is expected soon to fall. An official report by the Servian com mander says that the Turkish troops, after offering a desperate resistance, are falling back along the whole front and in their precipitate retreat are leaving behind them quantities of supplies and ammunition. The Servian losses are said to have been quite heavy. The (rreek army defeated the Turkish troops yesterday morning beyond Alas sons after a vigorous attack, and the Turks are now retreating to the town of Servia, according to a dispatch from Crown Prince tonstantine of Greece, commander-in-chief of the Greek army. The crown prince telegraphs that the Turkish army, composed of. 22 battalions of infantry and six batteries of artil lery, was compelled to abandon its po sitions and retire before the Greek on slaught.' The order had been given for a general pursuit by the Greek army. The crown prince has established his headquarters at Khanhadjigogo. The important Turkish town of Nori pazar in the district of the same name was captured by the Servians yesterday after severe fighting, according to a news agency dispatch from Nish, Servia. The troops suffered heavy losses. "A DISGRACE TO VERMONT." (Continued from first page.) MORGAN'S HARVESTER STOCK. Received 165,000 Shares for Service in Forming Corporation. New York, Oct. 24. J. P. Morgan 4 Co. received 165,000 shares of stock for services in connection with the forma tion of the International Harvester com pany. This stock on Aug. 14, 1912, was valued at $13,500,000, so testified Wil liam Hamilton of J. P.

George Fred Williams, who is cam paigning in the far west, said at Spo kane: "The election of Woodrow Wilson is inevitable. Kansas will be for him. My state, Massachusetts, will give him 50,000 plurality. Maine will go for Wil son, and so wiil New Hampshire, Connec ticut, New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Wilson will be elected president by the biggest electoral vote any presi dent ever received. Secretary Wilon in a upewli at Hart, .Mich., last nieht, reviewed the aceom plishments of Mr. Taft's administration and eulogized the president for procur ing "progressive legislation" and in "jrivinc the country a safe and stable administration, avoiding international troubles and conserving the interests of the people in every particular so that there bad been no check to prosperity." fJov.-rnor Marshall wound up a flying two-dar campaign in California bv ad- vocating the exclusion from the L'nited J States of all aliens who are not of I' character to amalgamate with the American people.

The police believe that the woman who was mud- dered on the Derby turnpike near here late yesterday afternoon was a "white slave" investwrator in the employ of the government and that she was lured from Chicago and taken in an automO' bile to a lonely place for the purpose of putting her out of the way. They are working on this theory in spite of the confession of Joseph Buonomo. her com panion on the trip from Chicago, that she was his wife and that he shot her without motive while he was drunk.

Hot In Any Milk Trust an increase in the value of our services to society, an increase more than com mensurate with the greater cost, can we hope to win. Sufficient Remuneration for Teachers. "From the viewpoint of society, then, what is sufficient remuneration for teachers as a class? Evidently the finan cial return must bo enough to attract Into the. profession and to hold in the profession a supply of teachers equal to the demand. There must be a teacher for every school. That condition Is met in Vermont to-day. If, then, the qual ity of tho teaching service is satisfac tory to the citizens of the state, wo have no logical basis of argument for higher salaries. Why hIiouIiI the state pay more, provided a sufficient supply of ttat isfactory teachers can be obtained ut the present scale of WHges? If we as teach' ers are satisfied with our attainments if the present legal requirements meet our approval, why are we justified in asking for incrensed salaries or pensions! 1 he Utopia of our hopes is still far in the future. Our wages, like those of all other classes, are determined by an un yielding economic law: given a. fixed de mand, in this enso the number of schools to be supplied with teachers, wages will be determined at that point at which the supply equals the demand. "Teachers' wages in Vermont are low, not because of the poverty of tho state or the parsimony of boards of educa tion, but because a suHictcnt supply of teachers is obtainable without paying more. If a town is satisfied with get ting a teacher who merely meets legal requirements, the wages' "paid are the lowest; if a town seeks a thoroughly prepared and competent teacher, tho wsges paid are higher, for such a town must compete with other towns In searching for superior teachers. All this is in strict accord with natural economic law. To argue that we should be paid higher salaries in return for present serv ice because our work is difficult and wearing, the pay small, and the future uncertain, is largely futile. We are met by the unanswerable argument that we entered the ranks of teachers as free agents, that we knew, or ought to have known, conditions, and that we are free to yield our places to others at any time. "Disgrace to Vermont." "The fundamental question concerns the professional standard legally re quired of teachers in Vermont. Is the quality of the teaching force satisfac tory? At the risk of seeming discourte ous to this body of Vermont teachers, I must express my deep conviction that the standard for certification of teach ers in Vermont is extremely low, so low as to be a source of incalculable waste to the state. In the seemingly harsh statement which I shall make m this connection, I have no words of criticism for the character, or the personality, or the purpose of those teachers who with the poorest of preparation and at the lowest scale of wages are teaching in many communities of the state. The majority of them would become excellent teachers if given adequate education with suitable training. "That poorly prepared candidates are given certificates and allowed to teach is no discredit to them, but is a disgrace to Vermont. The examinations given candidates for certificates are little more difficult, if any more difficult, than those given for free tuition certificates in high schools, and the marking of the papers of applicants it, extremely lenient. How ever excellent in 'character, pleasing in personality, and laudable in purpose a teacher may be. still she must have scholarship if her work is to be efficient. Even that fundamental, the one most easily determined by examination, ia not insisted upon. "There are certified teachers in Ver mont to-day whose ubc of English is no better than that of the average gram mar school boy, who misspell commonly used words, and who cannot perforin simple operations with decimal frac tions. In very truth the state commis sions the blind to lead the blind. Is it any wonder that our common schools are targets for atackf The crying need of Vermont is not tho teaching of in dustrial subjects, but more competent teaching of common subjects. How They Get Positions. "It may be asked how such poorly qualified teachers find positions. Unfor tunately conditions are such in many parts of the state that the only ques tion asked of an applicant is: Have you a certificate? The certified teacher can always find a school. The harm comes from the fact that the poorly pre pared teacher often secures a position which rightfully demands the superior teacher. The larger villages and cities and many of the smaller communities examine carefully into an applicant's fit ness for teaching, thus secure good teachers, and retain them in competition with other places by paying enough to hold them. It is not necessarily true that such a teacher holds the harder position or has the greater opportunities for service. "The teacher in the rural school, re mote from the Influence of churches and libraries, in a community that is stag nant or even decadent, working in a poorly appointed buildinu; with scant equipment, with pupils who come from homes devoid of all that might inspire that teacher has problems to solve from which her more fortunate, better-paid sister, might well shrink. She has, too, opportunities for service unknown to the other. Is it right for Vermont to permit untrained, unskilled girls to as sume such tasks?

Advt. muted in dollars and cents, but in the undeveloped potentialities of bovs and girls, in parental hopes blasted by un skillful teaching and discipline, in youth ful ambitions dwarfed by lack of opjior tunitv, in low ideals, and aimless liv ing. And poor schools are a direct ex pense to the state, as well as a loss, ignorance, improvidence, vieiousneas are as wasteful to society in a mountain hamlet as in a city sium. 'In either case, ignorance means low productivo power, which leads to pov erty, and then oft-times to crime. We can measure the cost to ermnnt of the care of paupers and criminals, of court maintenance and of the adminis tration of law, and we are told not in frequently that the increase In these ex penaea is alarming and enormous. Why not combat the cause, or at least one of the causes, of this alarming condition by improving our schools, by sending light into every remote and backward com-' munity. by conserving life in. the purity of childhood and youth, instead of pro tecting society from it in the ignorance and vice of manhood? "To provide for every school in Ver mont, a teacher specially trained, with natural aptitude for teaching and with professional ideals and spirit, would not be to unduly tax the resources of the state. I can conceive of no means by which the coming of the new and the better Vermont ran be more effectively hastened. To hold to the present stand ards is to perpetuate present evils and to aggravate present dangerous condi tions to the detriment of the whole state. The Rural School. "The great educational problem ol Vermont is admittedly that of the rural school. Why not face the problem squarely; assert as a fundamental prin ciple that it is the inherent right of every child to attend a school taught by a competent teacher, irrespective of his place of residence or family condition; make this principle effective by grant ing certificates to teach only to those candidates who have excellent character, adequate scholarship, natural aptitude, and who are willing to make special preparation for teaching. There would follow then, first, a scarcity of teich- ers; second, an increase in wages in ac cordance with the economic law already stated, which would soon yield a full supply of teachers for the schools; third, an insistent popular aemanu lor aae quate training facilities, a. demand n"t now in evidence and one which would solve on its merits the question of nor mal schools in Vermont. "Would the cost to state and towns bo prohibitive? Full consideration of what it would mean to Wrmont to have well-trained teacher with professional spirit and ideals in every necessary chnol would, in my opin on, prove the added expense to the etste to be a well- paring investment. Who can measure the present lo to the state caused by poor schools ! A loss not to be eti- Teaching Not Merely Mechanical. "It is not alone at the lower end of the scale, however, that the quality of the teaching service can be improved. Teaching is an art, one of the fine arts, to be successfully practiced only bv those who have natural aptitude for it ! and who are willing ever to strive hard to improve their methods and to increase their skill. No teacher ia perfect, or may ever hope to become So; no teacher who cannot further augment her power by reading or by study or by observa tion. The vital work of the teacher is more than the giving of instruction in r.nghsh and arithmetic, Latin and his tory. This merely mechanical work is but the foundation on which the earnest teacher strives to build living temples of useful citizenship and upright charac ter. "There is need that the foundation of knowledge be true and lasting; there is equal need that the habits inculcated in school be good habits, that the ideals developed be high ideals, that the life purposes formed be worthy purposes. Here lies the greatest opportunity of our- profession; by strengthening the good instincts and inhibiting the bad, by taking advantage of every noble im pulse, by fixing ideals of good citizen ship and of right living, so as to guide! the mental and moral growth of the pupil that it leads to noble manhood or womanhood. "To do this successfully the teacher must have more than scholsrship. Great teachers are such more by what they are tfcan by what they know. All the human sympathy and understanding to be derived from associating with men of every walk in life, all the breadth of vision which comes from travel, all the inspiration afforded by music or the drama, all the clearness of insight and nobility of purpose to be gained by inti mate study of great lives in history or literature these things, as well as knowledge, the teacher should seek, not selfishly for personal culture and enjoy ment, but in order that from a full storehouse he may give more abundant ly. Vermont Needs Professional Teachers. "To look up teaching ss a calling which requires special and continuous preparation, at cost of time and labor and money, never to be satisfied with one's ability, always to be self-critical and to strive for greater results, this is the spirit thst marks the profes sional teacher as opMsed to the mere time-server. In this sense of the tenn, it is possible for a teacher to be a professional one. no matter how short her term of service. In this sense we may strive to place a professional teach er in every Vermont school. Such teachers are the ones Vermont needs. To induce the very best of the young men and the young women of each gen eration to consider teaching as a pro fession and thus to provide a competent and skilled teacher for every school, ermont may well consider the question of the salsries paid teachers and. if found necessary, take measures to in crease their compensation. To hold in the profession those already successfully teaching, to retain their services for the boys and girls of ermont, to encour age teachers to grasp every opportunity for self-improvement and to give them selves unreservedly, body, mind and soul, to the work before them to do these things Vermont may well consider the question of granting pensions to those few who devote their lives to the work. "To raise the standard of the teach ing service would mean a more efficient development of the state's greatest re source; it would mean greater wealth producing power in a more intelligent and law-abiding citzenship. It would be another step toward that better or ganization of society when ignorance an ! crime and waste shall disappear and when each laborer shall receive his just reward."
