Rumrill has returned to Tier home in Randolph, after spending a few days with .Mrs. B. H. Tenney of ashington street. Mrs. Stoughton, who accompanied her to Barre, will re main in the city for a longer stay. ": The condition of Mrs. Peter LeClair of 24 Addison place, who is suffering from a deep wound in the back of the head, was reported to be improved this forenoon. Mrs. LeClair still adheres to the theory that she was attacked by an intruder, who climbed his way up to a second-story window and then assailed her as she started to alarm the house hold. It is understood that suspicion has not been directed toward anyone as yet, although a quiet investigation into the circumstances surrounding the al- Jeged assault is being conducted, it is said. Residents of tipper Washington streit .have been bothered to a large extent lately by the depredations of petty thieves, who ply their nefarious occu pations rnostly by night. That section of the city is said to be infested' by small purloiners, who prey on veranda furnishings and back-yard fixtures. One householder recently hung a half Tham in a. .sheltered portion of his rear piazza. The next morning it was absent. An other recently lost a 'flitch of bacon i?i the same manner, anil the depredations continue. One man who hassuffered in a more or less trivial measure from the night visitors is planning a warm reception for his uninvited callers next time they extend their operations to us premises. Widespread grief over the . death of King George of Greece among Ins own countrymen in America is shared by local Greeks, who were shocked to hear of his assassination Tuesday night. Sev eral told yesterday of having seen the king on different occasions, and all spoke alike of his democracy. One prominent local man who comes from a district adjoining Sardonica stated that while the death of the king would naturally cause universal sorrow in the Hellenic kingdom, the work of placing Greece on a firm footing with other nations of lower Europe would not be retarded. The new king, Constantiue, is described as a lover of the military, and George's policy of continually adding to the strength of the army and navy is not expected to be reversed. A surging mob of several hundred school children besieged the Tilden Shoe j C'o's. store in. the Aldrich building yv terday afternoon at the hour of 4, whm the proprietors began to dispose of the 1!U3 issue of marbles. A total of 1,200 bags were given away within twenty live minutes. Thirty thousand marbles were put into play during that period. Three policemen were on hand to mar aha) the young people and a large crowd of onlookers congregated on nearby ow ners to watch the fun. A few moments after the raid on the marble repository had ended, the manager of a stock com pany which is plaving a week's engage ment at the opera house, distributed four hundred pennies to four times that num ber of children by the scramble meth od. One lad proudly boasted of rustling for as many a eleven pennies, but he looked as though be had just emerged from a laundry mangle after the shuffle was over. Most of the urchins were content to get away with a single cop per each. The three largest Italian clubs in the city, the Italian Citizens' club, the Ital ian Pleasure club and the Italian Ath letic club, will unite in holding a hos pital aid dance in the Socialist hall on Granite street some time within the near future.

The appeal on' the Rutland railroad appraisal was completed he to re the state board of appeal at the State House in Montpelier and the appeal on the ap praisal of the Newport & Rich ford rail road was started yesterday afternoon. The chief witness of the day was Per- cival W. Clement of Rutland, formerly president and principal stockholder ot the Rutland railroad, and he furnished noma interesting testimony. Mr. Clem ent said he bought the stock of the Hut land railroad some years ago at $7 a share and when he sold it to the New York Central in 1902 he received around $120 a share for the stock. To-day' value he estimated at $00 a share. When cross-examined, by Attorney Cook about rates, Mr. Clement was asked if the Rutland had a rate of .0(2 cents on lumber from Ottawa to New York for a haul of 220 miles while the New York Central took .080 cents for its part ot the haul, winch was I'm miles. Mr. Clement was unable to state from memory, but regarded it as fair, becauso the Central did not need to use the Rut land, except to assist it. They can get into Ottawa by other routes. in regard to another similar case of apparent discrimination against the Jutland, Mr. Clement had no knowledge but did not doubt their existence or question their fairness. Because the New York lentrai had its own line available v) iid if the Rutland wants the tratlic it must give a lower rate to get it, that is, lower proportionate rate per ton mile. in regard to paper shipped from .Nor wood, N. Y., Mr. Clement said it origi nates at Norfolk, not Norwood. Norfolk s accessible to the Central. Mr. Cook thought Mr. Clement had considerable knowledge of this matter. Mr. Clement thought the rate cited was a fair one and a good one for the Rutland road. Clement Jabs Cook. Mr. Clement denied that the general freight agents of the Central and the Rutland were one and the same man and that they ever had Wen. The gen eral freight agents make the rates. He insisted that different men made the rates for the New York Central and the Rutland roads and always have. Mr. Cook sought to show that the rates for both roads were made by the same man. Regarding shipments from Winooski, Mr. Clement did not. think the rate un fair. Winooski is not on the Rutland and there is another route to New York. by way of the Central Vermont and i-onnecting lines. As to a shipment from Burlington, Mr. Clement said that if the rate is not fair the Rutland did not need to take it. He insisted that tbe Rutland made its own rates without dictation or control of the New York Central. He said it was silly to take a few cases where man ignorant of freight rates cannot understand them, and assert that the entire business of the road was on an unfair basis. '- Hdid not boast of his know ledge of freight rates, but hoped it was better than that shown by Mr. Cook. Even when operating officer of the road, he did not keep in hi head all the special rates and division made bv the officers of the road. The road originat- ng freight would, in some eases, demand an advantage in the matter of rate divis ion. It is unfair to argue from isolated cases. The cited cases he was unable to characterize as either general or rare. Both Sides Appealed. When the Newport & Richford ap praisal was taken up, Judge F. E. Alfred of Newport appeared for the road, which U controlled by the Canadian Pacific railroad. The tax eommisioner's ap praisal was $840,000, to which both the state and the railroad objected.. The road is a short one, being a connecting link for a larger road. Judge Alfred ex plained the conditions about the railroad. SHOOTER WAS CONVICTED Stephano Papotta Found Guilty in Rutland Coun ty Court OF INTENT TO KILL' FELLOW COUNTRYMAN The Men Were Said to Have Quarreled over a Game of Cards Rutland, March 20. A jury in Rut land county court to-day found Stephano 'apotta guilty of assault with intent to kill in shooting Paola Giaglona with a revolver. The fracas was alleged to have occurred in this city last fall, the men having quarreled over a game of cards. Papotta was arrested in New York City, whither he fled after the shooting. Most of the witnesses in the case had to testify by aid of an interpreter. Oms of the chief witnesses was Antonio Shrivano of Rutland, who told about the quarrel between the respondent and Giaglona. just before the latter was shot in tbe thigh. Serivano said that he was standing ir front of Papotta, holding him, and that Francesco Luea and Antolo Damico were holding Giaglona a few feet away when the respondent drew a pistol and fired, the witness not being aware of Papotta's intention until he heard the shot. It was dark at the time. DISCONTENT PROMISING SIGN SENTENCED BOY THIEF. for Francis Ketcham Gets Two Years Stealing Horse. Bennington, March 20.

The Barre Socialist local's second an imal series of propaganda lectures start ed in Howland hall Inst evening when William E. Duffy, of New ork fpoke to upwards of 12") people on "The Social ist Challenge." The lecture was tho first of five to be given on succeeding Wednesday eveninirs, I. L.. Springer acted as chairman of the meeting ani previous to the introduction of the speaker he outlined the local's purpose n conducting what he termed an edu cational campaign in the interests of the Socialist program. Mr. Duffy was greeted with a rousing ovation as he came forward to speak and he continued to be interrupted Ire- quently by applause throughout the course 'of his remarks. His part of the five-lecture program he defined as thu Socialist criticism of society, as it is organized at present. Starting on the premise that the present industrial sys tem has been outgrown, Mr. Duffy .'on- tinucd by presenting what he consid ered the evidence in the case. With particular reference to condi tions in this country, he gave the So cialist's diagnosis of society's malady. He fell in with the proposition that the rich are growing richer and the poor poorer, while work is becoming moie and more insecure. The cost of living j is getting higher all the time without corresponding increase in the wage scales. Strikes and lockouts are on the increase. Industrial depressions oc cur with greater frequence and the rusts are expanding. I he wonder it that the -discontent of the worker has been expressed so peaceably. And yet in this very discontent, he said, lay the most promising sign ot the times, Mr. Duffy discountenanced the idea that Socialism is the outgrowth or va rious reform movements that have long gone before. He argued his declaration from a basis that poverty is absolutely unnecessary and unwarranted on t.ie earth today. On the system of pro duction and distribution of life's neces sities in vogue today, Socialism will con tinue to make war implacable and un relenting, he asserted. Continuing, he said: ".Man has con quered the forces of nature and har nessed them to do his will, but it is the pernicious maladjustment of things that has caused society's ills." He de scribed the old handicraft and household systems of industry in comparison with the modern methods of production, con cluding with the statement that the marvelous transition from one system to the other bad worked to such ends that one man is now equal in productive ability to 200 men of yesterday. He de clared that the contrasts in the L'nited States between the rich and the poor were greater than any the world ha RIGHT TO TAX IS SUSTAINED Montpelier Proposed to Levy on Central Vermont Land CLAIMING IT NOT FOR RAILROAD IFE A Verdic' 1 .aintiff Was Reached in Washington Co. Court Last Night A verdict of far-reaching nature, .tot because of the importance of the single case involved, but because of its pos sible general application in the state, was determined when a jury in Wa.b ington county court last night sustained the city of Montpelier's right to tax thj Central Vermont Railway company for real estate. The amount involved in this instance was only about $300, the plaintiff being awarded the full amount asked. The case was given to the Jure at 5:30 and a verdict was returned two hours later. " The land involved was thn mnnlnw land lying off the west end of State street the Langdon and Nicholas mead ows. It turned out in the tcst.imn.iv yesterday that the railroad paid $35,000 for the Langdon property. Attorney t. a. ihomas made the open ing argument tor the city, saying that there were three parcels of land con cerned in the case, a small parcel near Taylor street, three-eighths of an sere and appraised at $2,500; and the Nich olas and Langdon meadows. The Taylor street property was dismissed from con- sideration with the brief statement thot' there were storehouses and a stoneshed . upon it. Turning to the meadow land.

J0HNSBURY ACADEMY REUNION Boston Alumni to Have Their Dinner at Twentieth Century Club, March 28. Klaborate preparations are being made Burlington, March 20. Several hours of hard work were mit in vpsterdav - i afternoon in the roof garden of the Yen Ness house by Fish and Game Commis sioner J. W. Titcomb with the wardens upon whom the duty of protecting Ver mont s reputation as a sportsmen s pleasure ground devolves. There were present, in addition to the wardens, a surprisingly large number of sportsmen, who took an active interest in the dis cussion of the' new game laws. A few changes in these law were criticized by some as affecting their own particu lar locality, but on the whole the coiic won henrty approval and were evidently well understood. The evening was giv en up to an executive session ot the game wardens, who elected their own such contrasts in Rome and how they contributed to the downfall of the em pire, he said that even in that early day the extremities were never so far apart. While dealing with this partic ular phase of his subject, Mr. Duffy furnished striking examples to bear out bis arguments. Socialism, he said, takes the position that poverty is a social phenomena which ariscs'from purely social and not personal causes. He took up the va rious charges made against the workers, such as intemperance, indolence and ex travagance. If all the members of the workintr class were to become abso lutely temperate tomorrow under con ditions which have never existed ex cept in the wildest prohibition dreams of Neale Dow, Mr. Duffy still believed that the change would not affect the social situation. He thought the to tal effect would be lost in an ocean of other causes. Turning to the charge of indolence he informed his hearers that 11 the work accomplished in the world today is performed by those selfsame worker charged with laziness. Coming to the charge ot extravagance. by the city. But the remainder of thu meadow land was taxed and should be taxed, the attorney contended. Just be cause a circus used the land occasional, ly, said the speaker, it did not establish that the land was used for railroad pur poses, any more than it would if the circus should exhibit on any farmer's land. The storehouse, he said, was not used for railroad purposes or business, being used for agricultural purposes, for storage of farming tools, etc. Attorney H. R. Amey, for the rail road, maintained that the land about the storehouse and under the spur tracks was set in the grand list and that they are outside the right-of-way owned bv the railroad. The testimony of Agent ;.I. P. Gallaher established the fact that the storehouse was used for railroad purposes, though it was, as an accom modation, loaned in part for storage of some farm tools. Such usage of the bouse, as a matter of accommodation, should not', he maintained, deprive the railroad of its right to exemption fron local taxation on land taxed by the stste. Judge Fish gave his charge ' to the AT- n,.tr. nvhiltitiul a Ttiimhnr nf nn7 envelopes used to pay Lawrence textile ,'j'"T I,,te the afternoon, and the jury hands before the strike.
