If the proposals are carried out. the vessel will he stationed in the truck of Atlantic travel and she will cruise along the boundaries of the ice region. She will then be in a posi tion to warn the hurrying liners by her powerful wireless equipment of the ex act position of the various lee fields. The proposed ship will also send warn ing of drifting icebergs and any dere licts which she may encounter. According to reports made to the ad visory committee, the. most suitable ice here ship would bo about 2,IHH tons dis placement:" 25(1 feet long and 32 feet liroiid, with a draft of 12 feet 0 inches.

Woodrow Wilson, Democratic -candidate for the presidency, contributes an article to the Novemlier Woman's Home Companion entitled "The New Meaning of oGvernment," in which he makes the poi'it that those who govern us at Washington must ecp house" for the whole people and 'not put the revenues of the government at the disposal of a limited governing class. Following is an extract : "Consider the duty of the government regarding pure food. The new aspect of government is very well illustrated in the care that government takes, when it is justly conducted, to see to it that tlie food the people eat is pure. Pure food laws, whether of the state or of the nation, are of capital and fundamen tal importance. No man should bo al- lowed to sell impure food, or adulter ated food, or food from which the nutri tions ijuality has been taken. And one of the greatest scandals of our time is that the pure fool laws wo fought so hard to get are so often ignored and violated and circumvented. This is not as new a function of gov ernment as some people suppose, but it is one which, unfortunately, our own government, state and federal, took up very tardily, and which required the persistent agitation of such men as Doctor Wiley to make effective in the field of public opinion. "I do not know any function of gov ernment in which the t sides we have t : : 1 .u PLEASING PRICES ALWAYS Lamorey Clothing Co.

It must be beyond Wing "reached" in any way. Its inspection of food must bo thorough, intelligent, fearless; and its applica tion of the law must be absolutely without refpeet of person or interests, financial or political. "It is a serious question now in many quarters whether these things can be mid either of our pure food laws or of their administration.

Tho commonwealth wanted to start a postal savings bank, but as this would have competed with the existing state bank, the state authorities opposed the idea bitterly. To bring pressure to bear on the fed eral authorities, a means was found in the threat to resume possession of Gov ernment House, tho residence of the governor-general, which is state property. The excuse was given that the ground were needed for a park and the house for a museum. At any rate the governor general was compelled to seek new quar ters in Melbourne, and on his departure the mayor of Sydney presented him with an address expressing the regret and in dignation of the citizens at the circum stances of his departure. 1 Bears ths Signature THE MONTPELIER & WELLS RIVER RAILROAD WINTER TRAIN SCHEDULE EffECTIVE SEPTEMBER 30, 1912.

The Federation of tho Rritish West In. dian colonics is probably to be brought before the liritish government for ap proval very shortly. Tho propoj-ed federation has been much discussed since tho colonial ollice granted permission for the trade agree ment between Canada ami tlie est In dian colonies. C. Gideon Murray, ad ministrator of St. Vincent, lately pro pared a scheme for tho federation, but this proved unacceptable to tho West In dies because it excluded from tho plan Jamaica, the Bahamas and Pritish Hon duras. Tho influence of tho colonial office will carry great weight if it inclines to aid the projiosod federation, for it controls all of tho colonies except I'.arh.ulocs, which has a constitution which gives it a more nearly responsible . government than any other colony outside of the dominions. One of tho initial difficult irs to be overcome in the efforts at federation will he concerned with tho maintenance of this constitution. It has been proposed to overcome this difficulty by making Barbadocs the seat of tho new federal government. It is claimed that toleration would greatly reduce the co-.t ff administration, which is now disproportionately high; that it would lead to tho establishment of a comon treasury, thereby enhancing tho credit of the colonics: tint it oull result in tho abolition "f tho preent customs dntiea hih tho iln! have raised against each other, and that it would gradually establish uniform laws in place of tho present tangled skein of imperial laws and orders in council.

On Sunday, September 22, in negro churches, everywhere, men and women of dark skin celebrated the fiftieth anni versary of the first emancipation procla mation. It was an occasion which might well have been made a day of heart-searching, to ask ourselves wheth er, in our treatment of tlie negro, the nation as a whole is honoring the mem ory of Lincoln himself, and of those who labored, fought and died to abolish slav ery. Are we, as a nation, dealing fair ly with the negro! " In the November number of The Cen tury we group examples of the work of four members of tho race in prose. poetry, art and musical composition, the first lieing a paper of entire authorita- tiveness and sintrular moderation of tone. . Dr. Washington, with the daunt less faith and courage which have car ried liim so far, sets forth his answer to the question whether the American netrro is bavins a fair chance. Discour agement he will not admit; he fixes his i eyes ever upon the h(pelul signs. "That Dr. Washington serves a use ful purpose in over presenting the cheer ful side is obvious. But he who fifty years after emancipation would stop there would see but one side of the ques tion. The shadows upon the race which tho head of the Tuskogeo glides over so lightly lie heavily upon ever-growing numbers of intellectual colored people, who are moved but little by figures of increased negro farm holdings, by sta tistics about negro grocers. lawyers, physicians and teachers. Grateful as their hearts may be that they are to-day in possession of their own bodies, they regard the future with troubled eyes. Looking upon their children they nsk with panic and fear if these are to be the children of tho ghettos now being established, set apart as though leprous, with one avenue of advancement after another closed to them, denied the par ticipation in government guaranteed to them by law, and in some statea put be yond the pale of law. They read that the American Bar association has virtu ally drawn the color line. They road almost every week of men of their race burned to the stake north and south j of their women, done to death, ruthless ly shot out of semblance to their Maker, by the mobs that destroy them in the name of the purity of the white race! Every negro criminal becomes a liv ing indictment of his people. Bitterest of all, they cannot defend themselves against official wrongdoing, for having only a phantom ballot in their hands, the vilest sherilT is beyond their reach. This i the reverse of the picture and its nathos is bevond description. What would Lincoln say? Would he, if reem bodied, declare that the negro, for all his progress, is having a fair chance, north or south, to-day ? Acquainted In Court. "And 1 Huppose." said SIlss Gnshins ton.
