Publisher Hope the Shamrock IV. won't have mishap in the sail across the "pond We hate to beat a cripple. An editorial on "Not more but better marriages'' in the Northfield News ig re pectfully submitted to Nat Goodwin. Without doubt, the Paris newspaper men will keep -accurate account of each tear shed by Mme. Caillaux during her murder trial. It would be woeful neglect to lose count of a single tear. When asked Tuesday what he was in Boston for, Charles S. Mellen replied: "Tell the dear Boston public I am here to steal away the liberties of the people of Massachusetts." 'Twas the retort tart, so to speak. When a congressman resigns under fire it saves a lot of trouble but does not strengthen his position. One would al most have thought that Representative McDermott of Illinois would have pre ferred to stay in office and stand the investigation, providing, of course well, providing. , . The annual muster of the Vermont National Guard is being held this year in surroundings that are distinctly mili tary, the regiment being surrounded by regulars at Fort Ethan Allen, by reg ulars and militia from Massachusetts and by the several hundred young men who are studying military tactics and movements at the government military camp located near Burlington. If there is any value in holding the muster under conditions which are decidedly military, the Vermont militia never had a better chance. The way to stop the introduction of hunger strikes in jails and prisons of the United States is to begin at once the forcible feeding of the inmates who try to copy after the English suffragette method of getting out of imprisonment. A few lessons in forcible feeding will prove very efficacious in driving the idea out of the heads of both female and male prisoners. Let us have no repetition of the halting policy adopted in Great Brit ain, or rather the. lack of policy alto gether. If prison authorities do not take a decided stand at the outset of the threatened invasion of the hunger strike Idea they will goon find themselves over whelmed by it. If you've planned to pay $25 for a suit, put $5 in . the bank, come here with the $20, and behold your $25 suit. The reason why: We sell .our goods low for cash, instead of ask ing our customers to pay the expenses and losses of charge, ac counts. We back them up by a guarantee stronger than most stores care to give. We Clean, Press and Repair Clothing F. H. Rogers & Co. irectly after the usual reunion of the Washington County Veterans' associa tion. fie Nobody applauds more vigorously than do the great mass of motorists the action of the authorities on the west side of the state who chased and caught an automobile driver who had, through care lessness on his own part, collided with a carriage in the town of Salisbury and then attempted to get beyond the pale of the law without making just recom pense to the owner of the carriage. And those same automobilists will find cause for satisfaction that the driver of the speeding car was forced to disgorge to the extent of the damage under fair ap praisal. The fellow was one of that class of visiting tourists who, do not feel a sense of personal responsibility when they come into Vermont but who think to ride over the state, rough-shod, as it were, making other motorists, teams and pedestrians scatter at the raucous shrieks of their horns and caring little what property damage they do if the road is not cleared for their passage forthwith. A lesson or two in decent driving for this small class of automobile users will prove of great benefit in making the roads of Vermont reasonably safe for all kinds of traffic. It Is an imposing list of speakers that has been secured for the veterans' re union of Orange. Washington and Wind sor counties early next month, and not the least on the list by any means are Fenator William P. Dillingham and the man who would like to succeed him, Charles A. Proutr, at present director tf values for the interstate commerce fom mission. Then, too, there is Gov ernor Fletcher who has been credited with an ambition to go to the United Mates Senate as successor to Dilling ham. The presence of these three men is likely to give somewhat of a politi cal turn to the reunion but perhaps not sufficiently pronounced to overshadow the main purpose of the gathering, which Is to give the veterans of the Civil war a grand good time as they gather for an outing. We hope that the J PI 4 reunion will be by far the best which the old soldiers of these three counties ever have engaged in. There ought to be a large attendance, especially from Washington county, as the Randolph reunion follows THE BASEBALL CLASH. The first serious clash between the baseball oligarchy and the new organiza tion which is called the Baseball Play ers' Fraternity oer what was in itself reallv a small matter resulted in the strengthening of the position of the lat ter through virtual acceptance of the terms presented by the ball players, The matter at issue scarcely came to the point of action by the so-called ma- r league baseball, being settled by the ndividual owner concerned before arrive mg at that stage; but to all intents and purposes the oligarchy thereby admitted tself in the wrong so far as one of its dividual members was concerned and took prompt action to make the proper amend. Just what the calling of a strike by the baseball players would have amounted to is, therefore, a matter for conjecture only and the sympathy of the general public is not placed. It Is certain, however, that a large number of people throughout the country, of the millions who interest themselves more or less in the great national game, are much in sympathy with the move of the players to gain for themselves a certain degree of independence and capacity for righting wrongs done their individual members; and they believe that the Baseball Players' Fraternity is the best agency for attaining such a position of strength. Hence this portion of the pub lic applauds the victory of the fraternity in sustaining the rights of one of its members, while taking secret deligh that the players, have gained another foothold in a struggle that eventually will place them on ground to demand their just rights and to remove them somewhat from the classification of mere chattels. The Baseball Players' Frater nity has had an uphill fight but it sure ly is gaining ground. party shares this view they will estab lish a tariff commission to decide on the rates of duty which the several pro tected industries may enjoy, just as the I. ('. (.'. passes on railroad ruleB. This recital docs not include various bodies, called commissions, but designed for a special task of readadjustment or reform. The country can get, along with them boundary commissions, etc. but it is with these huge and unwieldy agencies to which is assigned the virtual control of the business of the nation that wo may well look with some scrut iny. Where is this thing likely to end? (Shall we have a commission on the press, thnt will yet pass on the text and title and cartoon which the newspapers shall be allowed to print; or on the prices at which it may sell its varied wares, either independently or in combi nation wJTh other newspapers? if such an oversight is not doming logically, why not? 1 your business, Mr. Header, whatever it is, surely free from the meddling hand ' of the federal govern ment? Jf so, do not be sure how long it will thus remain. Uncle Sam is stretch ing out his arms, in every direction in these days, and there is no knowing how far he may eventually reach. And the fathers thought that govern ment best which governed least. So did the builders of every great civilization.- lioston Herald. . . MONTPELIER. Mrs. Jennie Clark Fell Down Cellar Stairs and Was Badly Bruised. Mrs. Jennie Clark is suffering from a fall, which she received at the home of a neighbor, where she was calling, Mon day. When about to leave the house, she opened the door into the cellar, in stead of the one, which 'opened outdoors, and fell to the cellar bottom. No bones were broken, but te woman is badly bruised about the face, arms and shoulder. The team of the Montpelier Gun club, composed of Dr. C. H. Burr, H. B. Moul- ton and F. A. Adams, who participated in tht gun shoot at Burlington yester day, brought back lust night a silver cup, which the team won over I'lattshurg, X. 1'., Randolph and two Burlington teams. The funeral of Orville Dewey, who died in Lebanon, X. H., was held in the chapel at Green Mount cemetery yester day afternoon, in charge of the Odd rel lows, Rev. A. W. Kierluff of Christ hurch officiating. The bearers were F. B. Thomas, E. C. Magoon, F. R. Dawley, H. C. Smith, L. H. Atherton and Bruce McDonald.

Frechette and Melvin Morse, all of Hardwick. It has practically been decided to give up the idea of paving State street this year, for two reasons. The sum of So.- (MX), which it was voted to use in sewer construction this year, has been doubled, t the condition of the sewers was found to be such that immediate action was necessary. This took the money which had been intended should go toward the "paving construction. It has also been the opinion of many that before the street is permanently paved, the Rialto bridge should be removed and another put in which would remove the hump . in the street. CURRENT COMMENT Improvement in Aberdeen Granite Trade. After several years of depression in the granite quarrying industry of Aber dee n, a noticeable improvement occurred during 1013, according to reports made to the department of commerce, wash ington. The price of Swedish granite keeps advancing on account of increased cost of production at the deeper levels now reached, and it is expected that competition from this source will be less keen in future, as the more easily operated quarries of Swedish granite are said to be nearly exhausted. Figures taken from the Aberdeen harbor returns show exports durine 1913 of 41,129 tons, and imports 22.496 tons, as con trasted with ;w.3"5 tons exports and 23, 7!Hi tons imports in 1012. As much of the manufactured granite is shipped by rail to Glasgow and other ports, the har bor export figures are not complete, but thev eive a fair indication of the trend of trade in this line. It is worth not ing that while more than one-half of the tonnage of exports consisted of paving set, curbing and the like, no less than "."'to tons of exports during 1013 con .'isted of polished granite. The corres pnndents of the stone trade papers in England take a hopeful view of the sit uation at Aberdeen and say that more stones could lie disposed of than can be produced, anil more men could be em ployed than can be obtained.

VERMONT Uncle Sam's Latest. When the fathers of the republic dratted the constitution and set L nele Sam up in business under it, they thought of his operations a falling un der three heads, the executive, the leg islative and the judiciary, and these have all lasted.

One of the few things I remember in that year is a visit from Jacob Rii. I had been planning for two years that our state should have the privilege of hearing him; now others had taken up the plan and he was to be with us early the winter. His tour began in the northern part of the state, and where ever he went people met him with enthusiasm. He was to visit our city last. Our friends attended to the details of pre paring for his lecture, and he was here in our home for a brief, bright space that our family can never forget. " "Here," we say, "is where he sat, on this side of the fire, when heset the chil dren on his knee, and told them stories of his boyhood in Denmark, and legends of their heroes." We knew there were none of them braver than he, and that the little decoration of knighthood he wore, given by the hand of the Danish king, symbolized also what was heartily I accorded him by the loyal love of the American people. But we knew more we were "receiv ing a prophet,'" and his presence was benediction. Albion Fellows Bacon in The Survey. Montpelier Band Concert.
