THE BARRE DAILY TIMES, BARRE, VT., SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1914.
WILSON SCORES A BIG VICTORY Senate Foreign Committee Votes to Recommend Im mediate Ratification OF. TREATIES WITH 24 NATIONS Vote Was 11 to 2, with Four Absentees in Favor Washington, Jan. 31. The first im portant step in the direction of getting the foreign relations of the nation ad justed as the president wishes them ad . justed was taken yesterday by the Sen ate foreign relations committee. It or dered, by a vote of H to 2, a favorable report on the various arbitration treat ies, including those with Great Britain and Japan. This means in all reason able likelihood that '' the arbitration treaties which total twenty-four are to be renewed. That the .Senate will confirm the action of tho committee is expected. The treaties have been pend ing since last summer, when their origi nal four-year limitations expired. The two who voted against the re newal of the treaties are Senators O'Gor- ' wan of New York and Smith of Michi gan. Senators Sutherland, Burton, Borah, and Clarke of Arkansas were ab sent, but they had sent word that they favored ratification. Senator Smith takes the position that tbe attempt to settle disputes by sweep ing policies of arbitration is a mistake, and that as each individual question arises it should be taken up with refer ence to whether it should go to an ar , bitral tribunal. Senator O'Uorman, it is well known, is strongly opposed to the British treaty He fears that under this it is proposed to submit the canal tolls question to ar bitration. The action of the committee is viewed as a distinct victory for the foreign pol icy of the administration. It is a direct outcome of the recent conference at the White House between the president and the foreign relations committee. At that conference it was agreed that the first important step in the effort to straight ,' en out the entanglements into which the United States has fallen should be to seek to ratify the arbitration treaties. In spite of official denials it is well known that those at the conference last Slonday night took a grave view of ex isting conditions. The treaties contain tlus language as to scope of the subjects to be arbitrated: "Differences which may- arise of legal nature or relating to the interpre tation of treaties existing between the two contracting parties and which it may not have been possible . to set tle by diplomacy shall be referred to the permanent court of arbitration es ' tablished at The Hague by the conven tion of the 2!Uh of July, 1899; provided nevertheless,- that they do not affect the vital .interests, the independence, or the honor of the two contracting states and do not concern tbe interests of third parties." The Panama tolls question, the Rus sian question, the Mexican question, the Japanese question, and the Colombian question remain to be solved; but the action yesterday was looked upon as a most auspicious beginning. In executive session of the Senate strong opposition to the treaties will be made, but it is generally considered cer tain that the opposition will fail. The pending treaties with France hav ' ing been renewed last year, are with China, Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, Japan,' Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Salvadore, Spain, Swed en, Switzerland, Austria-Hungary, Costa Kica, Haiti, Paraguay, Argentine, Re public, Bolivia, Kcuador, Uruguay, Chile, Brazil. THE WHOLE BODY. NEEDS PURE BLOOD It Means Healthy NutritionHood's Sar . saparilla .Makes It The bones, the muscles, and all the organs of the body depend for their strength and tone and healthy action on pure blood.' ' If the blood is very impure, the bones become diseased ; the muscles become en feebled, the step loses its elasticity, and there is inability to perform the usual amount of labor. The skin loses its clearness, and pimples, blotches and other eruptions appear. Hood's Sarsapanlla makes pure blood. It is positively unequalled in the treat ment of scrofula and other humors, ca tarrh, rheumatism, dyspepsia, loss of ap petite, that tired feeling and general de bility. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a pure, safe and effective remedy. There is no other medicine like it. Be sure to get Hood's and get it to-day. All druggists. Advt. , "SPEECH TWISTED," DECLARES CLARK Denies That He Announced Candidacy for President or Criticised the Extra Session. Washington, Jan. 31. Speaker Clark yesterday angrily, denounced morning newspaper reports of his speech Thurs day night at Baltimore as "wild, dis torted possibly deliberately tissues of twisted and false statements." He de nied tnat anything he said could be con sidered as inferring that he figured on being president in 1916 or any time In the tuture.- "The only thing I said about the pres idency was in reply to a long flowery introduction of the toastmaster, who said I would be in the White House to day if primaries had been in vogue last year," Clark said yesterday. "I said that, if all that the toastmaster said was true, I would be president to-day. "I praised President Wilson's handling of me Mexican situation; I also praised President Taft. "I did not say that the calling of an extra session last year was 'idiotic,' or that I would be president to-day if the primaries had been in force in 1012." STAKES ALL ON TORREON Villa Is to Assemble His Entire Army There . REBELS MOVE TO CUT LINES Their Commander Is Still in Juarez Will Lead - Attack . CHARLTON LAWYER QUITS. NO "FREE FOOD" IN CANADA. Government Wins on Wheat Amend irfpt by Majority of Forty-five. ''Ottawa, Jan. 31. By a majority of forty-five the government defeated in the House of Commons the free wheat amendment to the address in reply to the speech from the. throne. Several western members said in the debate that the wheat growers of the west had been forced to sell their finest and greatest crop for export at unprofitable prices snd still bad on hand more than 50,000, 000 bushels, which they asked the gov ernment to allow them to sell in the United States by a change in the Cana ' dian tariff, which would permit its free entry into the United .states market Porzio Withdraws Because He Could Not Get Big; Retainer. Como, Italy, Jan. 31. Giovanni Por zio, chief defender of Porter Charlton, the young American in prison here awaiting trial for the murder of his wife in 1910, withdrew from the case yesterday because the Charlton family was unable to pay the retainer fee he demanded. Porzio is a deputy and one of the most famous criminal lawyers in Italy. When he took vae Charlton case, in associa tion with Attorney Palmieri of New York, it was understood that Poreio would serve without fee. - Charlton's prison, in the heart of the iiow-clad Alps, is entirely unheated, and the prisoner has suffered greatly during the recent unprecedented cold snap. He has lost 25 pounds in weight, but he exercises strenuously every day and his general health is good. GAFFNEY GETS CLEAN BILL. Contractor Fails to Identify Him As Grafter. New York, Jan. 31. James S. Stew art, when confronted yesterday In the office of District Attorney Whitman by James E. GafTney, political associate of Charles F. Murphy, failed to identify him as the "Mr. Gaffney" who, he re cently testified, attempted to extort a political contribution of a hundred and fifty thousand dollars from him as the price for obtaining the contract for the construction of a section of the state canal. Stewart did say, according to Whit man, that the man who came to him was James h. Gaffney. Juarez, Mex., Jan. 31. Movements of the rebels toward Juarez . began on a large scale early yesterday. The bulk of the main army had en camped at Escalon, more than half way southward from Chihuahua, along the Mexican National railroad and more troops were joining them from the states of Durango and Coahulla. At the same time rebels were reported drawing in from the eastward with the purpose of attacking Saltillo and thus cut ting off the federal Communication from Monterey, General Francisco- Villa, as military commander-in-chief, directed the disposition of the troops with the in tention of himself joining and personal ly conducting the attack on General Re fugio Valasco's federal garrison. It is likely that an attack on Saltillo will precede that on Torreon. At all events, Villa proposes to pit practically his en tire army against the federals. The fed eral garrison is variously estimated at from fl.000 to 10,000, while the rebels strength exeeeds that number. For a week trainloads of ammunition and pro visions have been going southward from Chihuahua and been distributed at con venient points along the railroad. -General Villa at his headquarters in Juarez yesterday said he did not expect to go. south for several days. ' Cuts OS Force for Torreon. General PanfUa Natera reported earlier that . he had cut off Federal re enforcements advancing to Torreon from the south. He said he probably would attack the city of Zacatecas with a view to establishing a rebel base south of Tor reon. Meantime the rebel advance to Jimines, half-way from Chihuahua to Torreon, has been completed. At Jim- iuez the rebels expected to be joined later by General Villa, who will direct the attack on Torreon. The rebel ad vance south of Jiminez will be slow be cause of the destruction of the tailroad. Chihuahua has now only a small rebel garrison, most of tbe soldiers having gone south. TWO KILLED BY MEXICANS. PHYSICIANS ENDORSE VINOL To Create Strength and for Pul monary Troubles Run-down, debilitated people, those who need strength, or who suffer from chronic coughs, colds or bronchitis, may find help in these letters. Dr. C. L. Dreese, Goshen, N. Y., says "In cases where the curative influence of cod liver oil is needed, I prescribe Vi no), which I find to be far more palatable and efficacious than other cod hver prep arations. It is a worthy cod liver prep aration in which a physician may have every confidence." Dr. L. B. Bouchello of Thomasville, Ga., says; "I have used Vinol in my family and in my general practice with the most satisfactory results. It is ex ceedingly beneficial to ' those afflicted with bronchial or pulmonary troubles, and to create streneth." ' Dr. W. N. Band of Evans Mills, N. Y., says! "I want to say that I have used and prescribed Vinol in my practice, and it will do all you claim for it and more." We return your money if Vinol fails to help you. Bed Cross Pharmacy, Floyd O.

Only Way Out of Industrial War Says Eliot . Boston, Jan. 31. Profit sharing and the elimination of labor unions was de clared by President Emeritus Eliot of Harvard yesterday as the only way out or the present industrial warfare. Ad dressing the Master Builders' acsocia tion he said that the future of the country depends upon combating the evil influence of the unions in discouraging ambition, and in the theory of limited output. WILSON WOULD SPEED ACTION. Wants Anti-Trust Bills Passed Before Adjournment. Washington, Jan. 31. That President They said that great suffering was being Wilson is insistent upon the enactment experienced throughout the wheat coun try and that there was a noticeable movement of Canadian 'farmers to the United States in consequence. One prominent Conservative member voted for the amendment. He was M. F. MacLean, proprietor of the' Toronto World. Tho vote indicates that the gov ernment does not intend to give any tar iff relief to tho west. A large delegation of flour millers called on tho Conserva tive members and asked that the tariff be let alone. Most of the rest of the session will be devoted to a bitter tariff discussion and the Liberals say that tariff legislation will be the issue at the general election in 191f. LOSES HIS BRAVADO. Alleged Bomb Thrower Said to Be Ready to Confess. New York, Jan. 31. Angelo Sylvestro, the young bomb thrower, reputed leader of a Black Hand gang that terrorized the East side, lost all his bravado yes terday and persuaded the court to post pone his sentence until he could see the district attorney. Although Sylvestro, after his convic tion last night, went back to bis cell .snarling and threatening vengeance, it was reported yesterday, that he wanted to make a eonfeesion, and after a con sultation with the prisoner's attorney, .Tudire Rosalsky deferred his sentence until Feb. lfi. Judge Bosalnky had signified his in tention of giving the youth the maxi mum penalty, six years and a half in prison and a ?J,000 fine. . . of anti-trust legis'ition before adjourn ment to give members an early start in the congressional campaign . was made clear yesterday by the administration leaders. The Democratic leaders set the limit for session at June first. TAFT VISITS THE C0NNAUGHTS. Ex-President Will Be Duke's Guest Until Sunday Next. Ottawa, Ont Jan. 31, Ex-President Taft arrived in Ottawa yesterday after noon tnd was whisked to Rideau hall in one of the royal limousines, where he will remain the guest of the governor general, the duke of Con naught, until Sunday next. RUSSIAN PRINCESS MISSING. Left Paris Apartment for Bank and Has Been Absent - Three Days. Paris, Jan. 3I.--The police yesterday were asked to look for Princess Jlesteh ersky, a noted Russian dancer and beau ty, missing for three days. The princess left her apartment telling her maid she was going to the bank. The maid has not seen her since. 2,000,000 FRANCS FOR FAIR. Frencn Government Seeks Appropriation for Frisco Exhibit, Paris, Jan. 31. The French govern ment yesterday afternoon asked the Chamber of Deputies to appropriate Americans Believed to Have Been Shot by Soldiers. San Diego, Cal., Jan. 31. Two Ameri cans, P. W. Ilarwood, an Oakland news paper man, and Morton Miller, were led out from Tiajuna, Mexico, shortly be fore nightfall Wednesday under a guard of Mexican Federal soldiers, and are now believed to be lying dead in the moun tains a few miles south of the line, after being subjected to the fugitive law. Ihree miles south of the border liar- wood managed to slip a note to a Mexi can who passed them on the road. Hie note was addressed to a San Diego newspaper man. According to the Mexican, who mailed the letter, the guard of six Federal sol diers carried no supplies and aside from a small blanket one of the Americans had, there was no covering. This has convinced United States officials along the border that the prisoners were not being taken to Ensenada for trial as the Mexican authorities asserted, but were being led beyond into the mountains, out of sight of Americans on this side of the international line. Mexican authorities in Tiajuna re fused to say anything about the capture of the Americans. It has leaked out, however, that the Federal authorities believed them to be leaders of a gang of outlaws who were planning to overthrow the Federal power to lower California. United States customs and immigra tion men say the Americans are smug glers and they bold to this view in spite of the letter received here from Ilarwood. CRIMINALS SHOW YELLOW STREAK When They Are Thrown into Battle in Time of War. Conclusion Drawn from Successful Experiences of Football Players in Many Parts of United States. New York, Jan. 81. That college foot ball with its rigorous training, necessity for self control and ability to surmount repeated setbacks on the part of its players, is particularly fitting for a suc cessful political career later in life would appear to be indicated by the number of famous players who have achieved posi tions of prominence in both state and nation. There is seldom an election of importance in which some football play er is not elevated to public life by the voters of one or another political party. Those former knights of the gridiron are selected or appointed to all manner of political positions and almost without exception discharge the duties of their oifices in an extremely satisfactory man ner. The recent election of Bla'r Lee as United States " senator from Maryland recalls to mind the long list of former players who have won public recognition of similar nature. , Lee, who was a fa mous "forward" at Princeton in the late seventies, playing the position of "next-to-end" now known as tackle, followed the footsteps of many other Princeton, Harvard and Yale players. Robert Bacon, late ambassador to France, was an old Harvard captain and half-back; James S. Harlan of the Unit ed States interstate commerce commis sion is an old Princeton forward. Leo McClung, late treasurer of the United States, a former captain and half-back at Yale; William H. Lewis, recently as sistant attorney general of the United Mates, an old Harvard center: S. 11. Thompson, the present first assistant at-1 torney general of the United States, and William W. Ropor. the present surveyor of the port of Philadelphia, both Prince ton ends; ex-Congressman Lucius rt.Lit- tauer, a lineman for the Crimson; Gif ford N. Pinchot, late Chief Forester, once a varsity man at ale, and his sue cessor, the present incumbent at Wash' ington. Chief Forester Harmon S. Graves, a former back for the Blue. The late Governor William E. Russell of Massa chusetts was a half back at Harvard; Governor George R. Carter of Hawaii, once a guard at lale; Everett J. Lake, the great Corbin, affectionately known as "Pa." the present commissioner of taxes for Connecticut, once a center or Yale. John C. Bull, the great Pennsyl vania half-back, is attorney-general of the state of Pennsylvania. In the Connecticut Senate recently sat Frank S. Butterwortb, Yale's famous full-back of twenty years ago. Down in Delaware is Justice Marvel of the supreme court and once secretary of state, an old Princeton captain and for ward, and in the office of the attorney general of Maryland sits celebrated Ed gar Allen foe of Trinceton. In the of fice of the chief justice of New Jersey is William S. Guroniore, another old Princeton captain; in Pennsylvania's 20th judicial district is another old Princeton player, Judge J. M. Woods. George W. Woodruff, an ex-judge of the United Mates circuit court, was once a celebrated guard at Yale, and still more famous as a conch at Pennsylvania, in ventor of the quarter-back kick, guards- back and a host of other football ntm oeuvres. A recent reform mayor of Har risburg was Vanco McCormick, the old Ysle quarter-back. A late assistant po lice commissioner in New York was Bert Hanson, the old Yale guard, and there is Big Bill . .Edwards, an oid Princeton IN THE FIELD OF SPORTS captain, late New ork street cleaning commisioner, now in charge of a similar idepartment at Newark, N. J. Charles Berlin, Jan. 31. Criminals generally . D. Doly, the army's successful coach last turn out to be cowards on the battle- fall, haa recently left the office of fire field, according to observations in tlie commissioner of Boston to rejoin the cases of 225 men with jail or prison sentences in their record made during the campaign of Italy in Tripoli by Dr. Consiglio, chief of staff surgeon with the Italian army and reported in a German medical paper. Dr. Consiglio says: "The abnormal man is unfit for method ically disciplined effort in times, of peace. In war, where the demands of discipline and the strain of systematic preparations increase, he displays inva riably sooner or later a reaction against his surroundings, which manifests itself chiefly in morbid lack of discipline, dis obedience, insubordination or even deser tion. The moral strain and the violent manifestations of war induce in such men physical disturbances, excitative crises, hysteric and epileptic attacks and acute insanity. They lack the possibil ity of methodic action, the iron will to respond to the multiple demands of the instant and to the continued physical and intellectual strain. "While the habitual. . criminal, ' al though impulsive and aggressive toward superiors and comrades, generally is cowardly in battle, there are among the occasional criminals those who have gone wrong through drink or love of adven ture, many who distinguish themselves in warfare. But even these relapsed reg ularly into breaches of discipline and were useless for ordered effort. "The soldier adapted to modern war fare, capable of continued effort, able to retain his cool presence of mind in bat tle, is a man who haa shown himself time of peace to be an able, well- disciplined citizen. The time seems to be past when the blind courage of the adventurer, unconscious of danger, con army and the list might be continued in definitely. BISHOP FINDS CHARGE FALSE. The $500 given to Bill Killiifer by Weeghman of the Chicago Feds for sign ing with the Federal league is kicking around Philadelphia apparently without an owner. Killifer won't accept and ap parently Weeghman does not "want it, The day Killifer signed with the Phillies, repudiating the contract ho had pre viously signed with the Chicago Feds, he sent the $500 bonus money to Weegh man by registered letter Weeghman refused to accept the letter, which bore the name of Killifer and the other day the postal authorities sought Killifer for the purpose of turning the letter over to him. A telegram caught him at To ronto and he answered it. The reply was directed to the postal authorities, "Uncle Sam can keep the letter and the five hundred; I don't care," was the answer" Killifer wired back. Killifer, with Sher wood Magee acting as his valet, is seeing the country until time for the spring training trip. Steve Farrell, track coach of the Uni versity of Michigan team, says that he would have ball players learn sprinting. He came to this conclusion after watch ing the big leaguers in action. Probably before the coming' baseball season opens the Cincinnati hit, so called, will have been discarded. The consensus of opinion is, for its abolition. The baseball writers' association seems to be strong against it. At a recent meeting of the Edison Baseball club at Orange, N. J John Mc- Graw of tbe New York Giants appeared in taiKing pictures. , inese were the same pictures as shown in the Barre opera bouse several weeks ago. Tbe pic tures are being received with approba tion everywhere. . Jack Coombs, the former Barre player. has signed up for the coming season with the Philadelphia Americans. Since lcav ing the University of Pennsylvania hos pital Coombs lias been at his home at fcast nennebuuk, Me., recuperating. He intends to pitch as soon as he receives the word from his physician. Mack is re lying greatly on Coombs. . , Clark Griffith, manager of the Wash ington Senators, says that he has the best catching staff in the American league. He says that Philadelphia has Scliang, and Chicago has Schalk, but they do not comprise the entire staff. Walter Kenefick, a semi-professional pitcher, will be given a tryout with the Boston Braves this spring. He was rec ommended to the Braves by "Rabbitt" Maranville. Roger Peckinbaugh has forwarded his signed contract to the management of the New York Highlanders. Peckin baugh received flattering offers from the red. agent, but refused to turn astray from President Farrell, whom he says has treated him fairly in every way. For the first time in the history of baseball at the University of Pennsyl vania the squad was able to enjoy out door practice in the month of January. The squad took advantage of the spring like weather and repair to Mother Earth this week. H. Cody of Toronto trimmed Robert McLean of Chicago in the three-mile championship race at Saranac Lake, K. 1., this week. McLean led for five laps but then dropped out of the ranks. The loss of Ka filer, Falkenburg and Hlnnding will greatly cripple tbe pitch ing stan . or tne iap. Last .season Islanding worked in 41 games. Kahler, 24 and lalkenburg in 3M games. Man ager Birmingham will have to rely on Green, Cullop, Steen and Mitchell along witn several youngsters. Word has been received that Fred Beck, the former Boston Brave, has signed with the Chicago Federals. Beck played last season with the Buffalo club, but jumped lately because of the more tempting inducements. , Among the new rules for college base ball is the following: "The students of the home team must not cheer in any such way as to rattle the opposing team." The St. Louis Feds were refused a per mit to construct wooden stands at their ball park. In most of the large cities wooden stands are prohibited by fire laws. The St. Louis Feds will have to expend some money in order to" make as presentable appearance as the Cards and Browns do with $300,000 concrete stands Forcible Feeding of Militants Denied by Prelate. . London. Jan. 31. There is no truth in the allegation made by the militant suf fragettes that three of their comrades, imprisoned m Holloway jail, were sub jected to excruciRting tortures while being forcibly fed, according to the bishop of London. The bishop visited the jail upon the request of the militant suffragettes. Miss Eva Booth Better. New York, Jan. 31.

VU Gave Up church to Sleep Late Sunday. In the February Woman's Home Com panion, Bruce Barton writes an interest ing article entitled "Why Fifty Women Do Not Go to Church." Mr. Barton wrote to several hundred representative women living in widely different locali ties, asking for a frank expression of opinion. The letters he received in re ply form the basis of two articles, the tirst of which is the one referred to above. The second which is to appear later is called "Why Fifty Women Do Go to Church." One of the letters published is from a woman named Mrs. White who, with her husband, William, used to live on a farm and go to church in the nearest town a town of 4,300 population. Re cently her husband gave up life on the farm and bought a hardware store in the town. Since then the church bells have rung in vain, so far as the Whites re concerned, and following is Mrs. White's explanation: "We meant to continue as regular at tendants at the M. E. church, but town life is different from our old life on the farm. There we were hungry for so ciety and welcomed the opportunity that the Sunday morning service gave; there, too, our time was largely our own. Now Sunday morning is the only time we can sleep. My hut-hand is in the store all day and until late Saturday night, and it is really a pleasure to sit down at home and not have to hurry. Then, too, when evening comes we have the ex cuse that it is our only evening at home together. There are things I'd like to see done differently in the churches, but our difficulty is not lack of faith, but lack of time and energy. "The old habit dies hard in Mrs. White; she still feels a twinge of con science at every stroke of the Sunday morning bell; she is careful not to be seen at the window while the church procession is wending its halting way past' her house, lest the other members of the Clio club, of which she is secre tary, should see her in week-day clothes, resting, and should criticire. But it came to be a question with her between William and the church, between the dsy of rest with him and the children, anf a day broken into three unless parts by two church services. She chose Wil liam and thp rest and there ire two scats in the M. E. church which probably will not he occupied again, except per haps at Christmas time or Easter."

Five New Publications Every Working Bay. Philadelphia, Jan'. 31. The forty-sixth annual census of the publications of the United States and Canada, published in the American Newspaper Annual A; Di rectory, shows that an average of five new publications were started every working day during 1913. The suspen sions and consolidations make the net gain only three a week. The total number of publications is 24,527. There are 2.640 dailies the evening editions outnumbering the morn ing by about three to one. There are 572 Sunday papers. It requires 40 dif ferent languages to carry the news to t.ie people of this country. Largo lists are devoted to the special publications, agricultural, religious, etc., but every class, every cult, every trade, every pro fession, every fad, every "isin," has its printed spokesman in the 215 different hats into which they are subdivided. Only four industries now exceed in capital invested and value of products the business of publishing and printing. In 10 years the output increased 86 per cent., and it is estimated that at pres ent the earnings of newspapers and pe riodicals average nearly a million and a half dollars per calendar day. Two thirds of this amount perhaps represents the income from advertising. In the na ture of the case no one individual can be familiar with a large part of the pub lishing industry, which is carried on in more than 11,000 different towns; each of these is located and described, togeth er with all the publications, in the big book which presents the latest report of our publishing world. ' TO ENCOURAGE SHEEP BREEDING. New Hampshire Breeders' Association to Meet at Concord, Feb. 11. Durham, N. H., Jan. 31. The first an nual state agricultural convention will be held at Concord, N. H., Feb. 11. Pro fessor W. C. Coffey of the University of Illinois will deliver an address to the farmers of the state on that occasion. Professor Coffey is regarded by all sheep men as an authority on sheep. He has for a number of years past been the superintendent of the sheep department at the international live stock show at Chicago. Immediately after the adjourn ment of' the afternoon session of the agricultural convention a short business meeting of the Jew Hampshire Sheep Breeders' association will be held in the same hall, and officers elected and plans laid for the ensuing year.
