The Times is pleaded to be informed
by a correspondent in another column
that Solon Richmond of Brettleboro,

.the Vermont state board of conciliation
and arbitration, ia & trade unionist, hav

Just at this time when Brattleboro is
striving to get a new federal building
to bouse, the postoffice and the United
State court, It ia fortunate that ax
Congressman Kittridge Haskins ia the
postmaster, because he ha been through
the process so many times while in
Washington that he ought to be able
to unravel some of the red tape. And,
by the way, it ought to be stated that
the growing importance of the organ
town demands a large appropriation and,
consequently, a large and well-equipped
building. Better to put the money in
Brattleboro than to "plant" it in some
2,000 town in the middle West.

The disapproval of high buildings in
the city of Springlleld, Maw., finds its
reflection in a. new protest against the
erection of a large mausoleum in the
Springfield cemetery on the ground that
It would overshadow the more modest
monuments in it particular section oi
the cemetery. The mausoleum is pro
posed in memory of Chester W. Chapln,
builder of the Boston & Albany railroad
and prominent in transportation affairs
in Massachusetts. The erection of such
a memorial as proposed would be a dis
tinct addition to the architectural fea
tures of the Springfield cemetery and
would prove to be one of the attractions
of an already attractive city, while the
claim that other memorials in its im
mediate vicinity would be overshadowed
is so weak as to be a. negligible force
against the proposed movement. The
objection to a broken skyline in the busi
ness section of a city as when some tall
structure rears ita head above the others
does not apply to a cemetery because
in a street uniformity is sought, while
in a cemetery a variation in the de
Signs adds to beauty of the whole, pro
Tided, of course, the individual designs
be beautiful.
TRATED. One of the earliest returns from tax
listing is furnished by the town of Enos
burg and the working of the section of
the law abolishing offsets is to be studied
in consequence. Krora the report of the
Enosburg listers we learn that while the
real estate valuation showed a slight
decrease from causes which are explained
by The Standard of that town, the per
sonal property appraisal is three and
one-half times as large as it was in
the preceding year, or $3(90,560 as against
$117365 for tha year 1912. Inasmuch
as personal property valuations in Ver
mont were wont to be in the decreasing
scale for Tears, probably in Enosburir
as well as in the other towns and cities,
it may be taken for granted that the
great increase this year waa due solely
to the abolishing of offsets. As a result
the Enosburg grand list has jumped by
$1,112.50, thus making a. bisis for taxa
tion on which it ought to be possible
to get along on a greatly reduced tax
rate. Surely, the adding to the bur
den of taxation by removal of offsets
ought to be balanced in part by the lev
aening of the rate of taxation, just as
should follow in every Vermont city
and town where personal property valu
ation Jumps becatioe of the inability to
offset it for debts owing. And every
community is likrly to have an increased
grand list a the result of the admin
istration of the new law.
Don't Knock Boost
Many- a candidate for political office
lias killed hinwelt by abusing hm op
poiient. the average man has such a
stroll? sense of fair play that be will in
stinctively side with the one who is be
ing attacked. It is the old principle of
taking the part of the under dog in the
The same rule applies to the monu
mental business. It ia the poorest kind
of policy for any dealer to run down
his competitors, and those who have
tried it in their advertising, or in state
ments made by themselves or their sales
men to possible customer find it work
to their disadvantage. Many a pros
pect would never know much about the
competitor if his informant stuck strict
ly to the legitimate setting forth of
tlie merits of his own stock and work,
but the moment to began to run down
his competitor, it immediately set the
prospect to thinking that perhaps the
other men's work was the best.
The monumental man who endeavors
to establish his own claims for orders
by running down hia competitors for
gets tbis trait in the human mind makes
such a proceeding dangerous and does
nothing to 4ielp his own chancea for
getting the order. Far better to say
nothing at all about your competitor, a
friend'lv word for him on your part will
do much to establish confidence in your
self. Or if, on the other hand, you do
not know him, simply say so. It may
be that the competitor ia one of the
kind who bids low to obtain the work,
and then "skina" it to make a profit.
Siimplv say you do not care to figure
against him, as you work strictly accord
ing to specifications, ana present vour
proofs t to satisfaction given. Your
probability of winning out by such a
course is much greater than if you had
knocked the other man. From Granite,

Morgan Horse Breeding.
Last week we published in the news
columns something about what the fed
eral government is doing for the im
provement of Vermont fishing. But this
is not the only work of the federal gov
ernment in behalf of the state. It is en
gaped in breeding horse for military
service and in Vermont and New Hamp
shire it is breeding (Morgan horses for
this purpose. The headquarters for New
England in thin work is at the Govern
ment Morgan Horse Earm located in the
town of Woy bridge. But to give the
farmers of a wider section opportunity
to use standard bred stallions as aires
there have been good Morgan stallions
located for the season at Northfield.
Plainfield. West aKirlee and Hartland
Four Corners in eVrmont, and at Woods-
ville, Oxfordville and West Claremont in
New Hampshire. -
The farmers must furnish aound marea
with a square trotting gait and if they
v.ill give the government an option on
the colt at $150 when three year old the
service of the stallion is free. If the
government does not wih to take the
rolt no charge will be made for the aerv
ice. But if the farmer thinks the colt
worth more than $150 and decides to
keep it he must pay a fee of $25 for ma
ture stallions and a smaller fee for the
younger horses.
Thi is a most liberal opportunity for
the farmers of thete two states to im
prove the standard of horsea. It will
cost them nothing unless they raise euch
pood cnlts they do not care to part with
them for $150 and they have the oppor
tunitv to s'e whether the colt is more
valuable or not before they are asreaaed
the fee. Fair plav compels us to aay
that the people of Vermont are indebted
to .Towph Batiell of Middlebury for the
stimulus m tne norse raising industry
lecaii be presented to the federal gov
ernment tne farm now ne4 as the head
quarter of the New England hor breed
ing district. Mad it not been for this
peneroti gilt ermont would not have
been selected as headquarters. Every
person who is solicitous for the welfare
and sure of Vermont farmers will al
ways feel grateful to Mr. Battel for his
generous and broad-minded liberality

Verification of
Deposit Books
Section 25 of No. 15S, acts of 1910, of the laws of Ver
mont, provides that "In the year 1913, and every fifth year
thereafter, at such time in the year as the bank commis
sioner shall designate, the trustees of banks shall call
in the deposit books for examination and verification,
and cause the same to be examined and verified by some
person, other than the treasurer or his clerks, employed
for that "purpose and approved by said commissioner."
In accordance with this statute, the bank commis
sioner has designated the month of May for the exami
nation and verification of deposit books. Depositors in
Barre banks are, therefore, requested to present their
pass books either in person or by mail as early in the
month as convenient. Books sent by mail will be re
turned promptly.
