Police Lieutenant Becker will rest with

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."

evidence to the jury end Melntyre shook
his fist in Moss's face and denied the
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

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
George O. Berthal, a Lawrence police
man, continued his testimony yester
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
"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.
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

Princeton, N. J., Oct. 24. Governor
Wood row Wilson expected to be busy all

ernor said he had no announcement to
make as yet with regard to speaking

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

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
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
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.

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
"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?

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
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
