it in.

The annouiKement that Ambassador
Walter H. Page to the Court of St.
.Ismes is still receiving his salary of
35,000 a year from "World's Work" in
order to permit him to occupy the United
Slates' thief post abroad, the salary of
which is $17,500 a year, is not calculat
ed to make Americans particularly proud
of their system of representation abroad.
If appointees to these positions are com
pelled to live on the gratuities of their
former employes or to go into their own
private fortunes in order to maintain
themselves in foreign capitols, it is time
that the United States increase the sal
aries of the offices to a degree something

work aa the ambassador to the Court of
St. James; but at the game time the
United States cannot afford to send men
abroad to be social Hons of the royal
courts of the foreign nations, nor do
the people of the United States wish
their ambassadors to be leaders in so
ciety of the countries to which they are
assigned. The ambassadors are sent
abroad to be keenly watchful of the
interest of the United States in matters
of diplomacy which may arise from time
to time between their home country and
the country to which each iB sent. It
is to be expected that a certain degree
of social standing will be maintained but
not to a lavish degree. Ambaador
Page seemed to have the right idea of
American desires as he started to cross
the ocean to England, inasmuch as he
left it to be implied that ha did not
intend to conduct the office in any such
extravagant manner as his predecessor
had done, merely intending to expend
enough to give his tenure of the office
the dignity commensurate with the great
republic which he represented. It is
to be regretted that Ambassador Page
was compelled to call upon private do
nations to make that possible.
When a city the size of Barre has
$ti,500 of taxes unpaid, extending over a
period of seven years, it makes one think
that Waterbury system a paid collec
tor who guarantees the tax is the prop
er method. Waterbury Record.
And yet the record in Barre is not
so bad after all, when it is considered
that each year the city is called upon
to collect about $125,000 or, in .seven
years, in the vicinity of $875,000. We
submit that the sum of $0,500 out of
$875,000 is a remarkably small propor
tion of delinquent taxes. Reduced to the
average, the total delinquent taxea in
Barre for the seven years, as brought
out at the recent meeting of the city
council, shows $028.57 for each year,
WJien the shifting nature of a part of
Barre's population is taken into consid
eration, it is good collecting that is able
to bring the delinquent amount down
to less than $1,000 a year. Waterbury
may have better system and may be
able to collect its money closer; but, if
so, it is largely due to the fact that
Waterbury is smaller and its population
is more easily kept track of. We call
it that Barre'a taxes are quite well
cleaned up considering some of the handi
caps & larger place has.
Vermont Road Building.
The task of road building and mainle.
nance is not equally divided among the
towns and cities of Vermont, by any
means, though the state system helps
to equalize it to a certain degree. There
are 15,047 miles of public highway in
Vermont. Some towns have as few as
three or six miles only, while others have
over 100 miles. The average is a lit
tle over sixty-one miles and the majority
of the towns range about that figure.
There are only eighteen towns in Ver
mont that have 100 miles or over, and
eleven of these are in Orange and Wind
sor counties, as follows: Corinth, 108;
Newbury, 11: Randolph, 120; Tun
bridge, 100; Williamstown, 100; Chester,
110; Hartford, 120; Hartland, 108; Nor
wich, 104: Springfield, 123; Woodstock,
105. Of the more populous and wealthy
places. Burlington has only to main
tain 56 miles; Rutland, 33; Barre, 40;
Montpelier, 5fi; St. Albans, 23. Com
pare the burden of such little towns as
Corinth. Tunhridge. Hartland and Nor
wich with these big centers and more
reason appears why the atate as a whole
should attack the road problem instead
of leaving each town to fight it out
separately. With over 15.0(h) miles in
all, Vermont's tank is no slight one,
either. Randolph Herald.
Fair Play For All.
Writing to the Boston Herald, Briggs
S. Talmer states the . well-known fact
that the vast majority of those who
drive automobiles try to obey the laws,
"even though some of those laws seem
rather unfair." He asks for agitation
"until fair play is accorded to the care
ful automobilist."
There is not a doubt that ninety-five
out of every hundred who operate auto
mobiles under licenses by the common
wealth are careful. They are not speed
maniacs; they are not joy-riders; they're
not car-shavers. They should and do
have fair play. No man, organization
or newspaper attacks the careful auto
mobile driver. There i" no ground for
attack. The best service that can be
done to the sane and careful driver is
to wage war on him who is neither
sane nor careful. The demand for still
further restriction and control by law
is due, not to the careful driver, but to
the road-hogs.
The automobile has come to stay. It
is a permanent institution. It makes
for health and happiness, for enjoyment
and comfort. Because of it, good roads
arc being built all over the country and
first-class hotels are found where for
merly the best were worse than third
class. Fair play for the careful driver,
by all means, and fair play for the pub
lic, at the same time, against the speed
maniac Boston Traveler.

"The richest per capita na

France isn't the greatest pro

The greatest nation of indi
