BETTING FAVORS HARVARD
But Brown Is Expected to Put Up Stiff
Opposition Against the Crimson
Trinceton Rules a Favorite
Over Dartmouth.
New York, Oct. 20. The most at
tractive offerings on the football pro-
gram in the cust for to-day were the
l'rinceton-Diirtmoutli encounter Ht
Princeton and the Harvard-Brown bat
tles at Cambridge. These games are re
garded by football experts as the flint
real test of merit of the Princeton and
Harvard teams. Betting in New York
this morning was ten to seven in favor
of Princeton and three to two on Harv
ard. To-day also marked the beginning
of the interactional glomes with Jlicni-
gan playing at Syracuse.
Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 0. Unshed by
a big victory over the university of
Pennsylvania last week, Brown univer
sity was prepared to give Harvard to
day what was believed would be the stif
fest test thus far on the Crimson's
schedule. Harvard has always defeated
Brown, but generally the scores havo
been elose and the games very spec
tacular.
Princeton. X. J., Oct. 26. Anxious to
avenge their defeat by Princeton Inst
fall when DeWitfs "famous dropkick
robbed them of a tie score, the Dart
mouth college football team came here
to-day, determined not to be overcome
easily in this afternoon's game. The in
dications pointed to another hard battle.
The playing field was soggy from
three days' rain, and this was regarded
as an advantage to Dartmouth time
Princeton was depending more on her
speed than weight.
Vermont Loses Quarterback.
Burlington, Oct. 20. Vermont will not
have the services of Quarterback O'Brien
against the Springfield training school
this afternoon as O'Brien is out of the
game for the remainder of the season
probably. In the M. A. C. game O'Brien
received a slight cut on the left eyeball
and now the eye has swollen to large
proportions. His place will be taken by
Currier, formerly captain of Gushing
academy. The Springfield team of 20
members arrived here last night.

NEW MAPS OF WEST VIRGINIA.
State Geological Survey Cooperates
with Federal Survey to Secure Them
West Virginia by financial coopera
tion with the United States geological
survey is securing for itself a topograph
.. ic map which when completed will show
every important physical feature of this
y mountainous state. The survey is being
made in four-sided areas known as quad
rangles, averaging about 200 square
miles each, and as the area are sur
veyed the resulting map sheets, 14 by
18 inches, are engraved and published
by the federal survey. There re 131 of
these quadrangles in the state and al
ready 103 have been surveyed and the
maps publinhed. The latest map issued
is that of the Bald Knob quadrangle,
surveyed in 1910 by Fred McLaughlin,
a topographic engineer of the federal
survey. This quadrangle lies in the
. southwestern part of the state, covering
a portion ot Uoone, Wyoming, and Kal
eigh counties, and is traversed by Coal
river. The map is published on a scale
of approximately 1 mile to the inch and
portray an exceedingly broken and
mountainous country with elevations
ranging from less than 1,000 to over
2.800 feet. The ridges, mountains, and
valleys are shown clearly by contour
lines.
"4. Another West Virginia map just is
sued is the Holden sheet, representing
the area a quarter of a decree to the
west of the Bald Knob quadrangle, the
Logan quadrangle intervening. The
Holden area U similar in topography to
the Paid Knoh quadrangle, being moun
ts immA and intersected y many creeks
and stream. It is alo traversed by
several railways and in rhown to lie a
coal-mining and coke producing region.
The Holden quadrangle was mirveyed by
K. I. Ireland of the CniteJ State geo
logical survey.

Roosevelt's Would-Be Visitor Was Hus
tled Away from the House Yes
terday Afternoon Ht Is Not
Thought Dangerous.
Oyster Buy, X, Y., Oct. 2(1.--On ac
count of a number of threatening letters
received by Colonel Roosevelt and the
presence in Oyster Buy of a stranger
who attempted yesterday to make his
way into the colonel's house, steps were
taken last night to guard the life of
the ex-president. Tentative decision
was reached to engage one or two men
to protect Colonel Roosevelt during the
remainder of the campaign and for a
time thereafter, if the colonel had not
recovered sufficiently by election day to
be able to defend himself.
Colonel Roosevelt's condition continued
to improve and his physicians said that
he would be able to speak at the Madi
son Square garden meeting in Xew York
on Wednesday night, if no unforeseen
complications arise. But they said that
ho would be unable to do any further
campaigning.
the man wlio attempted to see I oio-
nel Roosevelt arrived in Oyster Bay
in the afternoon and set out on foot
for Sagamore Hill. He was met at the
door by the colonel's secretary and in
sisted that he must see the ex-presi
dent, although told that no visitors were
being received.
tie was a tall, well-dressed man, witn
flowing black moustache and a som
brero, which gave him the appearance
of a westerner. He would give no rea
son for asking to see the colonel, but
persisted in his demands until he was
cut oft sharply and told to leave Saga
more Hill. He then asked to see Mrs.
Roosevelt. The colonel's secretary final-
y persuaded him that it was useless
and he went away
TUiere was nothing about the man s
manner to suggest that ho would at-
empt violence, and he was described hy
those who saw him as being apparently
harmless. The stranger returned to the
village and wrote a long rambling let
ter to Colonel Roosevelt. Then he disappeared.
lhe attempt on lolonul Koosevelts
ifo was said by Dr. George W. Fa Dec
of Ovster Bay, one of the colonel's phy
sicians, to have stirred up "cranks" and
to be responsible for the letters which
Colonel Roosevelt has received since he
returned to Ovster Bay. In some of
them, threats have been made againsi
lonel Roosevelt, and it was decided
that the danger of another attempt to
assassinate him was sufficient to make
it necessary to guard him. The colo
nel's physicians wish to have him get
out of doors as soon as possible, be-
leving that he will be benefited greatly
by doing so, but they are unwilling to
lsk the chance of another attack, it
is probable that Colonel Roosevelt will
be kept in the house until adequate
provision has been provided.
Frank Tyree, United States marshal
in West Virginia, is the mnjj to whom
the guarding of Colonel Roosevelt would
be intrusted if his services were avail
able, but there was some doubt whether
he would be able to leave to come to
Oyster Bay. Mr. Tyree is an old secret
service man, who was a member of
President Roosevelt's personal guard.
If Mr. Tyree is unable to come to Oys
ter Bay, a private detective probably
will be engaged.
It was the idea of Colonel Roosevelt's
friends to have a detective in Oyster
Bay, watching the trains for arrival of
suspicious characters and keeping in
touch .with strangers in the town.
Dr. Taller received a letter of warn
ing yesterday from John A. Waldron,
appointment clevk in the office of Gov
ernor Dix at Albany. Mr. Waldron wrote
that a man who had attempted to force
his way into Mercy hospital in Chicago,
while Colonel Roosevelt was there, had
been a prisoner in Clinton prison dur

The climax to a series of bold bur
glaries and petty thefts, which have oc
curred in the last few weeks, came last
night when L. B. Dodge went to his
creamery building at the corner of North
Main and Granite streets and discovered
two young lads hiding under a churn.
Robert Donald of Grant' avenue, who
was released from the industrial school
in Vergennes on parole thirteen months
ago, and J-rank JJeforge of Granite
street were the culprits whom the but
ter man delivered over to the custody
of Officer Harry Gamble and the pair
had just returned from an excursion of
plunder covering two other stores, when
Mr. Dodge happened to visit his place
ot business around 7 o clock.
Young DeForge has made a clean
breast of his short criminal career and
the Donald boy has corroborated a part
of his companion's story. Both are 15
rears old and have parents living in this
city. They were brought to the police
station last night on warrants issued
by Grand Juror Hugh H. Carpenter,
charging them with breaking and enter
ing. It is likely that these charges will
be withdrawn in favor of larceny accu
sations when the respondents are ar
raigned nelore Judge Jl. . eolt in
city court.
Mr. Dodge was called to his creamery
early in the evening by two patrons
who wjshed to deliver a load of milk,
The patron and his wife went to the
hack door of the building, while Mr.
Dodge entered from the front. It was
the woman who first saw the face of a
boy peering out from under a churn.
and as Mr. Dodge came through from
his office she asked him if any boys
had accompanied him 'nto the creamer-.
Ho replied in the negative, and it was
then than the proprietor went to the
churn and dragged out two very unwill
ing youngsters. While Mr. Dodge was
calling police headquarters, young Dp
Forge made a break and gained his lib
erty, Donald was held in custody until
Officer Gamble arrived.
Afterwards, the officer procured a war
rant and apprehended DeForge at hit
home on Granite street. After he had
been lodged in a cell for a short time,
the DeForge boy grew reminiscent and
began to unfold his tale to the rhief.
He confessed to accompanying Donald to
the Tassie market about a week ago,
forcing an entrance and stealing two
rolls of pennies, esch containing 50 cents.
DeForge said that they made their way
into the market through a window. I
Afterwards it developed that the Tassie
market was again their goat last night,
when a few apples repreented the
booty gained on the second visit.
Immediately after this theft, they
went to the rear of the Howland block
and forced a window leading to the
Woolworth store. Here they regaled
themselves by opening all of the ten
or a down easn register nirinniei
about the store. The tills had been
emptied, however, and the youthful bur
glars made off with a few" candy boxes
am! other trinket easv to lug. he
IVvlge creamery was the next place vi
itcd and it there that their errand
ended in capture.

guilt and JuHge Scott continued the

LITTLE DANGER OF FURTHER
SPREAD OF SMALLPOX
So Says Dr. Holton of State Board of
Health Business Intercourse
With Other Towns
Not Prohibited.
The danger of any further spread of
smallpox in Barre is passed. There may
be isolated cases, but from now on the
number of cases will decrease. Dr. Hen
ry D, Holton. secretary of the state
board of health, said yesterday: "There
is very little danger of its spreading.
This is due in a large measure to the
energetic measures to stamp it out taken
from the start and continued until the
present time, and which will be con
tinued until the state board of health
believes it safe to relax.
The past twenty-four hours has de
veloped no new cases, or suspicious
eases.
In response to a query to him as to
the present situation in Rarre, and re
garding business intercourse with other
towns, Dr. H. I). Holton of the state
board yesterday sent the following tele
gram to City Attorney E. L. Scott:
"Rutland, Oct. 23, 1912.
"Hon. E. L. Scott, Barre:
"The situation regarding smallpox in
Barre has not reached the point where
the presentreguiations can be safely
changed. There is nothing in them that
was intended to interfere with doing
business with any adjoining town under
these regulat ions. J here is very little
danger of its spreading.
"Henry D. Holton,
"Sec. State Board of Health."

The formation of a literary organiza
tion, which will be under the adminis
tration of the Socialist local of Barre,
fire In the south end of Mrs. L. J.
Bolster's steam polishing mill on Granite
street this morning made business for
the firemen and threatened for a few
moments several buildings in the samo
group. An alarm from box 5 on Granite
sfrwt brought the combination onto
truck, chemical wagon nnd ladder truck
to the shed nt (;." r o'clock, and when
the firemen .dismounted they found
flames running up through a partition
to the roof. Two tanks of chemical so
lution were spread over the burning area
and the fire was out.
The lower end of the shed is occupied
by the firm of Johnson & Gustafason,
who do cutting as well as polishing.
Before the whistles sounded, one of the
men who reaches the shed early lighted
a gasoline torch which hangs on" the wall
in the boiler room. When the work
man's back was turned, the torch flared
partition-ward and presently a lively
little flame was creeping toward the
roof. The crackling of dry tinder first
led to the fire's discovery and someone
turned in a general alarm from the box
near by. Owing, it is said, to low press
ure at the gas plant, the big whistle that
usually booms out an emphatic alarm
emitted only a feeble noise that sound
ed like fizzle and then gave up the job
ot serving notice on the call men.
Los on the building will not exceed
if.'iO, and the Johnson & Gustafason com
pany is well protected. One member of
the firm is absent from the city, and
the second was not present at the out
break this morning. Mrs. Bolster's loss
on the building is also well insured. The
all-out signal sounded within fifteen
minutes after the firemen arrived, al
though one of the regulars was left at
the shed to guard against a second out
break. Chief Gladding stated this morning
that the failure of the gas company's
whistle to sound the alarm was due to
the extremely low pressure of steam
at the time, no visited the gas plant
soon after the fire was extinguished and
found, 20 pounds of steam registered,
where, as he declared, a pressure of
SO pounds was desirable. A watchman
at the plant explained that the whistle's
silence was partially due to a valve leak,
which would be repaired.
ORANGE LUMBER CO.'S
MILL DESTROYED BY FIRE
Heavy Loss Sustained Last Evening,
Just at Opening of the Lumbering
Season Other Buildings
Saved.
The large sfeam saw-mill of the Or
ange Lumber company, located nt tha
base of Knox mountain in Orange, was
wholly destroyed bv fire last evening,
but the other buildings of the plant
escaped destruction because of the fact
that there Ma little wind. The mill
and its contents were valued at $20,000,
on which there was a partial insurance.
Members of the company stated this
morning that they had not decided
whether they would rebuild or not. Tho
company has lumbering work ahead m
thnt vicinity to cover a venr or more.
The fire broke out about 8 o'clock.
Workmen had been engaged in the mill
luring the day, laving a cement founda
tion for the engine, quitting work at
about 8 o clock in the evening, lliere
was no one about the mill at the time,
and so it is possible that the fire may
have started from a match which smoul
dered for some time, 6r from spontane
ous combustion, there 'being much oily
material about the mill.
When the fire was discovered, tho
building was enveloped in' flames and
nothing could be done to check the file;
but efforts were directed toward saving
the other property. A large barn is lo
cated near bv and a little further away
re two buildings occupied by the chop
pers and the mill men, while still fur
ther away are several residence build
ings. There were no logs near the mill,
so that, fortunately, the loss is not so
large as it would have been a few weeks
later.
The mill had not started for the win
ter's work, but the owners were over
hauling the machinery ready for starting
up. Part of the engine was outside oi
the mill and was not damaged, although
other necessary parts to it were in the
building and were ruined. Much of tho
equipment was new. having been put
in a year ago. The building was erected
by the Orange Lumber company when
lumbering operations were started thren
years ago. The company is comsed
of the Hiii man family of North Strat
