Publihr Will Hucrta demand the elimination of Wilson! Ko doubt was left as to the sentiment of Barre on the hotel proposition. lirazil, Argentina and Chile hand us the reverse end of the Monroe doctrine the hot end. ' Wilson has troubles enough without trying to dissolve his cabinet. Let thorn alone for the present. If you don't set out a tree next Fri day, Arbor Day, you ought to improve the trees that you have, especially those apple trees. To let the Mexican newspapers tell it, Mexico could lick the world with her little finger. 5The censorship of the news is very one-sided down there. The old Northern baseball league grad uates continue to perforin well in the major leagues, as shown by the work of Reulbacb, who pitches as well now as he did when he entered the major .leagues some years ago, which is very well. The old Northern league school was A good place for training purposes. BULLET WOUND MORTAL Continued from first page. The Dartmouth medical school grad uated five M. !).' last week. Surely the big medical schools of the country can not complain of numerical competition from the Hanover institution. More over, the number graduating probably was not enough to fill the vacancies in the profession in New Hampshire during the interval from the last previous grad uation, so the Dartmouth medical school cannot be charged with glutting the market. The dastardly shooting of Frank L. Tolk, corporation counsel for New York, has been somewhat overlooked in the rush of great international events, but it U pleasing to note that Mr. Folk has practically recovered from the effects of the bullet which was Intended for his thief, Mayor Mitehol. and that he takes the matter so calmly that he has re ceived the bullet set in the form of a watch charm and was able to make light renin rks over the presentation. That which i equally pleasing is that the hooting has been fastened on no one pise, individuals or cliques, besides the doddering man who imagined he had a righteous grievance against the chief ex ecutive of New York City. THE VERMONT MILITIA RKADY. The warning of the Spanish-American war has been valuable in keeping the state military departments in good shape, so it is possible to assert that in many respects the citizen soldiery will bo found in better shape to-day than it was when the call to amis was heard back in 188. The Vermont Na tional Guard has been trained during the years following the trip to Cliicka mauga with a view to practical experi ence and for that reason the various companies should be in excellent shape as far as it is possible for citizen" Sol diery to be in times of peace and with no war in prospect. We understand that at a conference of officers of the Na tional Guard at Burlington on Saturday it was reported that the regiment was in shape for service and that, a great majority of the enlisted men are ready for the word that shall call them into active participation In support of their country. We trust the word will not come but we are glad that the men arc ready. j THK SOUTH AMKRICAN OFFER. 1 An element of irony enters into the offer by the three South American coun tries, Ilra7.il, Argentina and Chile, to act as mediator between the United States and the discordant elements in the Mex ican -republic following the occupation of Vera Cm by the United States ma rines. The irony is furnished by the United States, which for years has set herself up as the conservator of peace in these same South American countries, finding herself in a position very much like that from which she tried to keep n00n-41.- . : ...fjv The IHO tWUltl Xlllt-I It l-Udlltl tfS, ttllU Willi those South American countries turning about and offering to extricate the erst while fostering mother from the dis agreeable situation. Brazil, Argentina and Chile were quick to see the oppor tunity to teach the United States a les son and they were as quick to grasp that opportunity by sending the formal offer of their services in behalf of peace. Because of the former position of the United States in which she was willing at any and all times to use her good offices in settling the squabbles of the South American countries, it would have been scarcely consistent for the United States to turn down a similar offer by those same nations. Therefore, it be came incumbent on President Wilson to accept the offer of mediation, or, to ac knowledge that the whole program hereto fore carried out by his country was not a reciprocal obligation but intended merely for the United States to exercise when it saw fit. President Wilson's note of acceptance of the offer indicates a frame of mind not at all over-pleased Kith the situation forced on the United Ftates by the adroit South American nations, coupled as it was with the ex pression of doubt about the ability of the mediators to perform the function and the large intestines, it penetrated the stomach, passed through that organ, and finally lodged in the gall bladder. A physician, probing for the bullet, was successful- and an examination of the ball disclosed, a missile that must have been fired from a 22 calibre revolver. Fernandez regained consciousness but suffered intensely. This morning he was reported to be 'fairly comfortable, but physicians could not hold out any hope of recovery, and attaches at the hospital believed tiie end was a matter of a few days. Set king for Gomez. The authorities are hopeful but not confident that Gomez will be apprehend ed. Every possible avenue of escape is being closely guarded and the next 24 hours may disclose some satisfactory de velopments. Tho officers are satisfied they are hunting tho right man, as the testimony of people who made up the phonograph party established his iden tity beyond a . doubt. Soon after the assault, Deputy Sheriff Martin madu a careful examination or the grounds around the Fernandez house. Toward midnight ho notified Sheriff E. W. Kent of Orange county, who was passing the week-end in Randolph. Sheriff Kent came to Williamtttown immediately and at 4 o clock Sunday morning the toree of investigators was augmented by the arrival of Sheriff Frank H. Tracy of Montpelier. Williamstown " authorities communicated first with the Barre po lice headquarters and later in the fore- noon the police station in Montpelier was notified. Sheriff Kent, at the head of the searchers, at once set on foot plan that will make it extremely difficult for (fomes to make good his escape, Everv surrounding town has been fur nished with a description of the wanted man, officers everywhere in tins section are under instructions to detain bus picious characters and meanwhile a drag net has been thrown over a large area. Searching parties set out in all direc tions this morning. Yesterday it was learned that Gomez had relatives' in West Berlin, Montpelier and Graniteville. Sheriff Tracy and one of his men from Montpelier went early to JSerlin and mane a careful search. Jn the afternoon Sheriff Kent. Deputy Mar tin and liner Sinclair or Jiarre were busy in Graniteville. To all accounts (romez is meagrely supplied with money and the officers are firm in the opinion that he cannot proceed far. They hold to the belief that he is in hiding within a radius of 10 miles of the scene of his alleged crime. To-day officers are go ing (Tver Williamstown. Barre Town, Barre, Montpelier, Berlin, Waterbury, and Northfield. At one time or another Gomes has been employed in all of these places. He is believed to be well sup plied with cartridges and it is supposed tlmt he still has the gun which he used with such deadly effect in the yard at remandez' house. But little is known of Fernandes and less Is known of Gomez. Fernandez is 23 years old and has been in America about three years. Until a few weeks ago he lived in Barre and made his home on Railroad street. Gomez is 25 years old and is said to have a wife in Spain. He, too, has lived here nearly three years. Jealousy Alleged Cause. Jealousy is advanced as a motive for the shooting. Those who were in the party Saturday night deny that this spirit proeeded from rivalry over any one woman, but at the same time they intimate - that Fernandez' popularity with both sexes might have had some thing to do with the shootintf. In a statement to the officers after th shoot ing, Fernandez declared the animus to be all on the side of Gomez, said the attack was from the rear and wholly unexpected. Tn fact he was unaware of Gomez' presence until the man opened fire. . Here in the city there Is a good deal of excitement among the Spaniards. To day few of the Injured man's country men were found working and all we're intensely interested in reports on the search which the officers are conducting. Gomez Known in barre Court. In police circles Gome is said to have an unsavory reputation. Records on file at city court show that Riccardo Gomez was arrested in Barre for as sault on November 8, 1000, The police alleged that Gomez had committed a se rious assault on one Arthur Ruelle. At first he pleaded guilty and for 20 days he was at liberty on $100 bail. November 30 of the same month he came into court and pleaded guilty, paying a fine of $20 and heavy costs. At that time he said he was 22 years old and gave Spain as his birthplace. Even then he was quite well Known among Span iards here and the man who went his bail was Manuel Villa. U. S.

Northfield District of Schools Held In teresting Program. Northfield, April 27. An educational meeting of the Northfield district union schools, including the towns of North- field, Berlin and Koxbury, was held Sat urday in the high school assembly hall of this place, both forenoon and after- morning program opened with an invocation by Rev. Clinton Scott, after which Miss Mabel Edwards rendered a vocal solo and tho superintendent pre sided over the roll call of teachers. An address on "N?hool hthira, was given by Rev. J. B. Sargent, and one on "Read ing. Its Impression and Expression," by Mrs. Maude Stewart. Miss Helena Davis contributed a violin solo and C. L. Pervier spoke on "The Relation of the Teacher to the Pupil," followed by Miss F.lizabcth Jenkins, instructor in the teacher training course of Goddard sem inary, on "One Use of the Margin of the School Day." At the afternoon session, music was furnished by Miss Mabel Edwards, Miss Olive Robinson, Arthur Teach and Wil liam MaeOreadie. Mrs. Inez Woodbury gave a talk on "A Lesson in Primary Reading'' and Supt. E. M. Roscoe of the Barre city schools on "The Teachers' Opportunity." A flute solo by Cadet Heber Shaw was much enjoyed and was followed by a talk on "Nature Study" by Miss Nellie Tillotson. Principal G. behind Grcn of the Vermont Agricul tural school at Randolph Center spoke on "What Can the Rural Teacher Io to Foster an Interest in Agriculture?" Those Revoked Charters. "Vermont is quite a graveyard for cor porations, too. What tales of disap pointed hopes those 68 revoked charters might tell could they but speak I" Barre Times. It is better that death certificates and burial orders be promptly issued to cor porations that are moribund. We find only two or three names among those of the 58 concerns whose charter have Just been revoked by the state tax com missioner, according to law, of corpora tions which were at any time going con cerns with good prospects and that have met with reverses or had poor manage ment. A few others are of those who have ceased business and gone elsewhere in the state, and still others have been merged with larger companies and thus are stronger than ever. For the most part, though, the 58 corporations just deceased in Vermont were at no time any considerable business tactor in the stated-Rutland News. The Split-Log Drag. If there Is any virtue in thd split-lot drag, and roadmskers the country over agree that this simple Implement works wonders on dirt roads, this is the season for Vermont highway commissioner to give it a trial. Road builders in various parts of the country arc claiming that this easily constructed tool will do more to put the ordinary country highway in shape after the spring rains than will any of the new fangled road machines, Improved as they may be over the earlier types, in the hands of Inexperienced road- makers. State Highway Commissioner Gates lias said that be finds increasing enthu siasm among the county officials in charge of the state's highways and it may be suggested that in view or this condition of optimism that the time is opportune to preach the doctrine of the split-log drag and preach it good and strong. There are hundreds of miles of so called "back roads" upon which it m probable that the state will not ex pend any great amount of money for many years to come and it is upon these highways that the drag can be made ef fective, providing there is that efficacy about tho implement which is claimed for it m other parts of the" country. In addition to preaching this doctrine what reason i there against putting the sermon into practice and insisting that county road commissioners use a certain amount of state funds to give the split-log drag a fair trial upon all kinds of material, clay, gravel, sand and the ordinary "plain dirt T" The enthusiasm which the stats high way commissioner lias noted among the citizens of the state regarding good roads will be multiplied many fold when the farmer in the back towns findB his road to the village can be improved at what may be termed nominal exppnse by the application of the split-log drag.

Why not make the present year, the coming summer season, a recordbreaker so far as Vermont can contribute to the pleasure of the great army of tourists which seeks the outdoors, the moun tains, the lakes, the quiet of the country. Every town and city of the state con tributes to the quota of exiles in other states who have gone from Vermont and who, for reasons of business, have be come estranged from their native state. Suppose we make a concerted enort to induce these exiles to return-for a week, a month or for the season. It will not require a great deal of effort to write letters to the sons and daughters of Vermont in other states and urge them to enlist in tho army of tourists to Ver mont this summer. Write to them and tell them that we want them to return this summer. Tell them, for instance, that the shores of Champlain are dotted with summer col onies where cottages may be rented at a reasonable figure, that since many of these Vcrmonters went away we have built a railroad across the islands in Grand Isle county, thus opening to tour ists a section which is unrivalled as a vacation spot for those who may be wearied with the noise and grime of the city. Tell these wanderers from home that our railroads make an effort through the service of fast trains to bring the tourist from the city to the country in a few hours. Say to these former residents of Ver mont that we have awakened to the possibilities of the 6tate as a mecca for tourists, that we have sites to sell forj summer homes, that we have improved our roads, thut many of the villages from which they migrated years ago to day possess up-to-date water 6yfctems, that trolley lines reach points which they remember as isolated, that we have built electric lighting plants in many towns, that we are increasing the effi ciency of our schools, that we are pros perous and that we are Increaung our deposits in the savings banks. This sort of missionary work cannot but result in increasing the number of summer vis itors this vear. The result will be worth the effort. Rutland Herald. Mr. and Mrs. 13. II.
