Mrs. Florence Elliott, a six months' bride of Freeman Elliott, the latter employed at G. H. Tilton & Son's hosiery mill, attempted suicide by drowning in the Winnepesau kee river yesterday afternoon at a rail road bridge near the East Main street railroad crossing. Just before jumping into the river, she called at the flagman's office, A. P. Beckman. and asked his per mission to leave her sweater there for a few minutes, and as she left thp place, she is quoted as saying over her shoulder something about killing herself. Going to the bridge, she went to the third pier on the upper side of the bridge, stepped down and after glancing around in all directions, jumped head first into the river. Coming up under the bridge she was heard to scream "help" and, throwing her arms over a piece of float ing timber, kept partly afloat, although her head was under water most of the time until she reached a point about fire rods below the bridge in midstream, where she was rescued bv an employe of the mill where her husband was work ing. He succeeded in getting her ashore, where he was met by Elmer Lambert, and the two brought her up onto the side of the highway, where Dr. E. F. Houghton, who had been summoned, ren dered first aid treatment. At first it was thought she was dead, but after 20 minutes' work over her she began to show signs of life. One of the onlookers, a stranger, offered the use of his automobile and the girl was rushed to the physician's home on School street. On examination of the sweater left in care of Flagman Beckman, a note was found pinned to the inner side of a pock et, which read: "Freeman Elliott is the cause of his wife's death as she lays in the water where von will find her. Mrs. Freeman Elliott, Tilton, X. H." It is learned that she has been re siding here about a week and that her husband had left her some time ago. She is said to have claimed that she had yesterday been to see a local attor ney about his getting her husband to support her. NEITHER ACQUITTAL NOR IMPEACHMENT DYNAMITING FOR BODY. On Theory That Gertrude Drowned Herself. White Burlington, June 23. The disappear ance of Gertrude White remains a mys tery although the theory of suicide is still entertained. The lake in the vicini ty of Rock I'oint. where it is supposed she drowned herself, is being thoroughly searched every day but so far with no rucccks. There is of course no definite spot to search as it is not known where she took the fatal leap, admitting that the suicide theory is the correct solution of the nivstery. Her coat and hat were found on the beach near the boat house where the water is very shallow and if the young woman decided on self-de struction she must have chosen a point to the westward where the cliffs are abrupt and the water deep near the foot of them. Yesterday permission was obtained from State Fish and Game Commission cr Titcomb to use dynamite in an at tempt to bring the body to the surface and the explosive was used several times wit with no result. There is a possi bility that the body may have lodged in some of the shelving rocks tinder the water. NATIVE OF WINOOSKI. Frank E. Dumas Died in Boston Was Herald Telegraph Operator. Boston, June 23.

Recommended in tbe Case of Judge Speer of Macon, Federal Judge for the Southern Division of Georgia. Washington, D. C June 23. "The sub committee regrets its inability to cither recommend a complete aequittal of Judge Speer of all culpability so far as these charges are concerned, on the one hand, or on impeachment, on the other hand.'' This was the conclusion submit ted to the House judiciary committee to-day by th -special subcommittee that for months has been investigating charges of offieial misconduct filed against Emory Speer of Macon, federal judge for ' the southern district of Georgia. The report, after an exhaustive resume of evidence with severe comments, held that some of Judge Speer's official ac tions "tend to approach a condition of tyranny and oppression," but recom mended that no further proceedings be had by the House. These conclusions now rest with the full committee on judiciary, which is ex pected to report them to the House for final, disposition of the case before the adjournment of the present session of Congress. The subcommittee comprise Representatives Webb, North Carolina: Fitzhenry, Illinois. Democrats; and Vol stead, Minnesota, Republican. Mr. Volstead, in a minority report, similarly declaring that there is no evl dence warranting impeachment, will at tack the majority of the subcommittee for criticizing a judge they declare not guiltv of anB impeachable offense. Nineteen charges were filed with the committee. They alleged, among other things, that Judge Speer entertained matters beyond his court's jurisdiction, allowed excessive trustee fees to a per sonal friend, used his official position for preferment of his son-in-law, A. H. Hey ward, abused his authority by domestic use of government paid court employes, violated laws regarding drawing of jur ors, and dissipated bankrupt estates by appointing unnecessary officials and at owing excessive fees. Another charge was that, in the case of Henry Jamison, a Macon negro, Judge Speer defied the mandates of the su preme court of the United States and the circuit . court of appeals.' The subcommittee's conclusions fol low: "The conclusion of the subcommittee deduced from the evidence taken and from the construction of the precedents of impeachment trials, is that at the present time satisfactory evidence suffi cient to support a conviction upon a trial by the Senate is not obtainable. "In the conduct of the hearings the committee was extremely liberal and did not confine the witnesses to the giving of technically legal evidence. Much evi dence of a hearsav nature was received. The committee felt justified in such a course in the light of the fact that it came to the attention of the committee that -many witnesses were apprehensive of the consequences of giving evidence against Judire Speer in the event of his acquittal. This feeling and the general disposition on the part of the individ uals to protect themselves against what was termed the 'wrath' of Judge Speer kept from the committee the names of the witnesses and a knowledge of the facts in their possession. Many of the witnesses whose testimony would be ab solutely necessary to sustain Borne of the charges made are dead. Others have re moved from the southern district of Georgia and their whereabouts are un known. "Another phase of. the record is that it details a large number of official acts on the part of Judge Speer which are in themselves legal, yet, when taken to gether, develop into a system tending to approach a condition of tyranny and op pression. There has been an inequitable exercise of judicial discretion, many in stances of which have been frequently criticized, where the cases in which thev were committed have been reviewed by the courts of appeal, while in other sliti gants were unable financially, to prose cute appeals. That the power of the court has been exercised in a despotic and autocratic manner by the judge can not be questioned. The Jamison case is one of many in stances shown by thi record where the judge, without taint of individual cor ruption and with the apparently laud able purpose of purifying the community and innnijurating a civic reform, disre garded the law and apparently consid ered that the end justified the means. "The record shows instances where the judge, sitting in the trial of criminal cases, apparently forced picas of guilty from the defendants or convictions, and there is strong evidence tending to show that in one case, at least, he forced inno cent parties to enter such pleas through a fear of the consequences in the event of an unfavorable verdict at the hands of a jury presided over by the judge in the manner peculiar to himself. "The subcommittee regrets its inabil ity to either recommend a complete ac quittal of Judge Speer of all culpability so far as these charges are concerned, on the one hand, or an impeachment on the other. And yet it is persuaded that thi competent legal evidence at hand is not sufficient to procure a conviction at the hands of the Senate. But it does feel that the record presents a series of le gal oppressions and shows an abuse of judicial discretion which, though falling short of impeachable offenses, demand condemnation and criticism. "If Judge Speer'g judicial acts in the future are marked bv, the rigorous and inflexible harshness shown by this rec ord, these charges hang as a portentous cloud over his court, 'impairing his use fulness, impeding the administration of justice, and endangering the integrity of SCORE BURIED UNDER DEBRIS One Man Killed and Six Bad ly Hurt by Subway .

" Write Barre People. The aftermath of Barre's reception to the New England cemetery superintend ents and their guests on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week finds members of the general committee and others ac tive in the program of the two days re ceiving warm letters of commendation for the manner in which the visitors were entertained. Appreciation finds its expression in a flood of letters which are coming daily to local people and by tes timonials conveyed by the delegate themselves through monument dealer who have visited the city since the out ing. Tributes to Barre's hospitality and the capable management shown by the four organizations having the affair in charge leave no room for doubt that the superintendents did enjoy themselves while, here. One prominent member of the associa tion writes: "Now, the result of my vis it has been to show that you can get granite out in such large sizes, and at so economical rates that I think it should take precedence over any granite in large mausoleums or monuments. In fact, I have told a proprietor who is to take down an old tomb and build a large modern one, that it was for our interests to use Bane, as the structure could be built with fewer joints and at less expense to him, both in initial cofci and in keeping it in repair, than in any other stone. This is not altogether be cause of the character of your quarries. A large element of your success depends on the'teamwork of your association and the facilities you have for handling the stone economically. " " I am lost in admiration at the business-like way the committee handled the whole matter. I have been attending three or four such meetings a 3'ear for the last 2(1 years, and the ma jority of them, when compared with your method, seem merely go-as-you-please affairs. I do not mean the very liberal hospitality so much as the way everything came off on schedule time. The automobile ridea- were especially well managed, and the instructive visits to the quarries and shops were beyond praise." Another writes: "I want to express mv appreciation of the mighty good time you good people of Barre gave us. Every minute was enjoyable. '"Barre people gave us a royal good time, writes another. And then: "All we can talk about lu the good times and the good things we had in Barre." COMMITTED TO AN ASYLUM Mrs. Mary Folsom.

Interest in the case of State. vs. Re caredo Gomez, who is charged with as saulting with intent to kill one Emilio Fernandez in Williamstown last spring, was considerably heightened this morn ing by the arrival in the city of Peter McKay Almeida, Spanish consul at Bos ton, with the consulate attorney William Henry Irish. .Messrs. Almeida and Irish arrived from Boston on the Oreen Mountain express at 8 o'clock and after delay for breakfast they accom panied Angel Trula by automobile to Chelsea to be present at the reopening of the case against Gomez in Orange county court. When interviewed this morning at the train, one of the men who were instru mental in putting the case of Gomez before the, Spanish government, said that Consul Almeida and his attorney nere liere to represent the government in Spain. He intimated that both the consul and the attorney will remain in Chelsea until the hearing is completed. Countrymen of the accused Gomez have been deeply interested in the Jight which he is to make for his freedom, it is said, and it was through their efforts that Consul Almeida was moved to con fer with the authorities in Spain. It is said that government agents in-Spain made a trip to Gomez' native province of Santander and there made investiga tions of his own character and the standing of bis forbears- that friends of the accused hope will weigh in his fa vor when presented by the consul's at torney. ' So far as can be learned Consul Almei da's visit to Barre and Chelsea is the first that any member of the Spanish consular service in the I'nited States has ever made in Vermont. By virtue of his office, the consul at Boston has the oversight of his countrymen's in terests in Xew England. This morning a large deputation of Spanish people was at the station to greet a dapper, well groomed man as he alighted from the train. Consul Almeida evidently does not lack for democracy as his ready response to each individual greeting at tested. Four automobiles were required to convey a party of Gomez's countrymen who were anxious to be on hand for the day's proceedings. They left along with the consul and bis party, NEW G. C. I. A.
