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

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
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.-

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
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

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
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

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.

meeting of the Northfield district union
schools, including the towns of North-

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

Mrs. Maude Stewart. Miss Helena

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.

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

might tell could they but speak I"
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

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-
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.

Invite Vermonterj to Return.
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.
