1013 THE BARRE DAILY TIMES I'ubliiihcU every ec-day afternoon. 6ubcriptionii Ons yr. 13.00; on month, 25 cent; single ecpy, 1 ctnt. Entered at the pojtofllce at Urrs a second-class matter. Frank E. lanfiley, Publisher. THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1913. The average dallv circulation of the Dnrre Daily Timet for the week ending lait Saturday wu 6,200 copies, the largest circulation of any daily paper In Vermont outside of Burlington. What's become of that g.'r. of yes terday J Some way, the White .Star twinkles bitter with Ismay out. Governor Sulzcr walked. We hope he never will be put on the run by a bad cause. The infant year started off without any great tragedies, which is no small matter for congratulation. Paradoxical as it may sound, Paris and Washington are linked by wireless. It is a feat in science which has not been given the prominence that it merits. Paving blocks sent by parcel post yesterday, according to a statement from the postollice department at Washing ton. However, Barre won't find a so lution therein for its transportation troubles, for Barre paving blocks weigh more than the government's limit on postal packages. sidiTution: "New Knglaud is of all section of the country the ono most imperative demanding co-operation of all its stutea for its Industrial safety. It has great wealth; it is a hive of inilu try, but its population does not give it a powerful voting strength, nor are its natural resources Biich as to render U a commercial muke-weiglit. Jts entire population (O.SOO.OWI) is exceeded by the population of two of the states of the union, New York, which has more than 0,000,000 inhabitants, and Penn. sylvaniu, which lias 7,000,000 dwellers within its borders, Eighteen states have each ureas greater than the CI 070 square miles of New England. New England will go into Texas four times and then leave enough surplusage for two states the size of Massachusetts, In these states an immense proportion of their areas is untitled, still awaiting its first ploughing. Put that condition will not continue long, and then the do ptndence on them for their natural re sources into which New England has fallen. will redouble their power. These are hard, material facts. Le us look them squarely in the face, and be pre pared in our organization against their being translated into political action." The United States immigration au thorities refused to allow ex-President I 'astro of Venezuela to land in the United Mates, according to the information which has come to the public; but the authorities have failed thus far to di Tulf the reawon for the exclusion. It seems that the public of the country has a right to know the reasons, since does not appear to have been from the more usual reasons for exclusion, like lihood of the applicants becoming pub lic elia.gcs or the. fact that they are nrllicted with disease. The public may agree with the action of the immigra tion authorities, but at the same time it would like to know the basis for the f.vchiHion. That a little country village, far re jjioved from the great manufacturing centers, should have been able to conduct woolen and shoddy mill employing tointf bands for a great many years was Vavttcr of considerable surprise and, IndeW, it was not widely known until Are cde Tuesday and wiped out the Little Bros.' mill at North Mont pelier. Such an event perforce brought the information before the public and :aused wonder at the pluck of the firm at maintaining the manufacturing bus iness in such a small community, where, ' otherwise, agriculture is the chief oc cupation. Therefore, it is with greater regret that the news of the Are loss is received, a loss which will prove of grave moment to the village if the mill is not rebuilt. The people of North Hontpelier should take steps to assist the Little Manufacturing company to rebuild its mill and thus retain for the community the only manufacturing con cern of the villnge. The Boston Transcript closes an ap peal for greater co-operation on the part of the states "of New England with the following, which is worthy of con- BARRE IN 1012 AND 1913. All things considered, Barre has just paMged through a prosperous year. The industrial life of the city has been con ducted without interruption and proba bly more persons have been employed than ever before, while the volume of business in the various branches has been fully up to the average, perhaps about the same progress of the past ten years; several notable additions to the city were completed during the twelve-month and quite a. number of residential buildings were constructed. Barring one setback last October, the city's health conditions were- remark ably good; and it deserves to be stated that the city coped with a threatening situation in that month in a manner to indicate great vigor and resource. The municipal administration was conduct ed generally with fidelity to the wishes of the people and with evident desire to adhere to business principles, so that the financial condition of the muni cipal government at the opening of the new calendar year may be considered satisfactory. Then, if we were to turn to the less material side of the city's condition we should find a marked gain in the general tone of the community, a better spirit prevailing (not that the old spirit was by any means bad) a firmer resolve to make the city a place more attractive to the resident and the visitor alike. In short, by far the great er tendencies noted during " the past year have been directed toward the past structive rather than the destructive side of right living, both individual ami collective. Now, what does the year 1913 hold for Barre f It is a trite saying that it holds just what its people make of the opportunities, but it nevertheless is true. Certain it is that the opportU' nities for advancement are many; in fact, Barre has an excellent outlook for morougruy progressive year. v hat are we to do with these opportunities! 5 A. gj&ift- i0il lit AND MANY OF THEM And may you wear the best fitting, best looking, most comfortable and reasonably priced clothes you've ever had and get them at F.

Artists of conceded merit .mnartiuu much needed distinction to a venicle thft suffered for the want of auch casual K-rquiMtes a$ life, levity and the pur suits of plain, nt varnibhed, sentiment, is the story of Xeil Twomey's dramati zation. "Freckles" witnened by a laric matinee audience at the opera house yes terday afternoon and again in the even ing. A. G. Delamater, who produces clean plays, if the bills are accurate in characterization, has lavished a degree of choice,' hardly incomparable, but cer tainly meritorious, in selecting his play ers for a drama that just left New Voik for the country lanes a few nights aco; but as for Mr. Twomey, well, he has been horribly cruel to Uene Stratton Porter's striking tale of the Iimberlo.st. Genius must stand frozen at the thresh old when she looks in on "Freckles," us the drauiatist would portray f'rck!en, McLean, Dig Duncan, the teamster, or Black Jack. Even a capable company did not wholly pemiade the audience, a good natured holiday audience at that, of the real merit of "Freckles." Applause thero was in large measure sometimes, whole souled satisfaction over some portion of th piece and if the handclapping was directed at the individual work of the characters, it was truly deserving. Nrvcr has a cast worked harder to redeem a string of second-rate dialogues, and maybe because, it was a New Year's house that witnessed the pretty pietir; of the woods the air of erudenesa which sometimes marked the piece was over looked. Portions of "Freckles" possess merit and if a half dozen situations where cheapness creeps in were to bo stricken out and real drama substituted the production, what with its cast of manifestly able interpreters, might be , wholly worth while. Over a million readers, for "Freckles" wa once a best seller, know the first story that a remarkable woman, who lived her life in the swamp, forests of the LimWrlont ever offered to trip public, i Its re-telling would lie superfluous. Mil ton Nobles jr., plaved "Freckles' with I peculiar degree of understand inc. al- ! j though liis singing was not always in i 1 giKHl voice.

Jacobsou left the house at 7:30 o'clock and it was the last Mr. Norrin saw of him until he went to the. undertaking rooms yesterday after noon, after having been notified by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Gustafson.

The key found in the dead man's pockets Mr. Norrin recognized as the latchkey to his home in Wchsterville. Asked as to the initials "I). V." which were embroidered on Jacobson's stockings, he explained that the "" was in reality a "J," the two letters forming, the initials of Jacob son's name. Mr. 'Norriii was surprised to learn that no money was found on the man's person. Before leaving home Jacobeon asked Norrin if the stores were open in Barre that night, and it was as sumed that he intended making purchn es before returning home. It is tiJ that ha usually came to Barre well sufi- plied with money. He had a tiank ac count and it is a common belief among his acquaintances that he must have saved considerable money while working In eustcrville. Meanwhile knowledge of the exact cir cumstances leading up to the man's death seem just as far away as ever. Those who acout the theory that Jacob son was kiled while alighting from one of the freight cars are many. Except for a slight cut at the base of the nose, examination of the body failed to re veal a single mark except the clean, incisive, knife-like cut that severed the head from the torso. There are those who doubt that a car wheel revolving so slowly that the locomotive stopped within twice its length from where ths body was found could perform an opera tion that could hardly be bettered with surgical instruments, and still leave ini mediate portions of the body and head, the face, breast and shoulders tin mutilated. Trainmen are credited with the. statement that the front of the loco motive as well as the underslung of the train bore no signs of blood or any ves tige of clothing. A pool of blood where the dismembered body was found alone told a story of the man's death, a story as yet incomplete, at variance with numerous theories, and still unsatisfac tory in the minds of many men. The funeral wil be held at the home of Mr. Norrin in Websterville Friday forenoon at 10 o'clock, Rev. Robert Car ter, pastor of the Baptist church, offi ciating. Interment will be made in Wil son cemetery. Great Geological Library. The library of the United States, geo logical survey ia a collection of geologic literature that in degree of complete ness can not he duplicated elsewhere in this country, if indeed in the world. In commenting in his annual repore on the need of a new fire proof building for sur vey, the director states that this library has a value which can not be easily es timated, since, if destroyed, it could not be wholly replaced, and such portion as is replaceable could be duplicated only at a great expense of time and public money. Although the present rented building of the survey is constructed of iron and brick it is honeycombed with light wood en partitions, which present some two acres of surface that could be easily ig nited. Even if these wooden partitions should be replaced with fireproof ones the building would still be classed with the third-rate risks because of the lack of protection of the bottom flanges of the I beams that support the floor arches. A fire once started in this Urge amount of inflammable material wauld result in quick buckling of the unpro tected iron beams and the consequent collapse of the floors.
