It speaks well for the quality of th new citizenship about Barre and Mont- pelier that not one of the applicants for naturalization papers was rejected at the recent session in Montpelierj and it also is an encouraging sign that so many are taking up the duties, as well as the advantages, that go with citizenship. Senator Dillingham's decision to go out and make an active canvass in Ver mont for re-election to the United States Senate, following Charles A. Prouty's announcement that be Intends to spend considerable time campaigning in Ver mont, assures the state of an interesting contest. Both are men of pronounced, though rather widely varying, personal ity and are likely to be gladly welcomed by the public to whom they go for support. Rather late in the day, the. Salem re lief committee announces that it needs no mere .contributions to aid the people who were rendered homeless and jobless by the great fire of several months back. Xow there is a greater and more press ing need in taking care of the sick, suf fering, wounded and distressed by rea son of the hostilities in European coun tries Tersons disposed to help can do considerable good through the agency of the Red Cross society, following the ap peal of President Wilson. The St. Johnsbury Caledonian's en thusiastic support of Alexander Dunnett for Congress rather sidetracks the Bur lington Free Press boomlet of Editor Bigtlow of The Caledonian for the posi tion. Incidentally, another newspaper 'roan, Johnson of the Randolph Herald 'and News, hastens to inform the popu lace that he is one newspaper man of the district who ia 'not a seeker for the office. The statement is duly noted, and we congratulate Editor Johnson on his self-restraint. If denied the use of the edbles, Ger many can resort to its direct wireless connection with the United States to give its side of the great war. More over, the occasion gives a splendid op portunity for trying out the advantages of the new system of long-distance com munication. As yet wireless telegraphy over such a vast distance as that which lies between Europe and the United States is merely in the experimental stagb, although communications have , been passed. The development of those experiment into practical tests may be one of the few good things to come out of this terrible war. A rather changed condition from for , mer times it is when B5 business men of Rutland run over to Burlington to be the guests of Burlington business men t luncheon and after being pleasantly entertained return home in the afternoon without being hurried and without be ing made uncomfortable by the hard ships of travel.

Possibly those 1-nterprising American publishers who sent war correspondents to Europe to cable home the movements of the opposing troops are wondering as to the wisdom of their act just now. The American war correspondents are not likely to be allowed to report even the pink teas with victrola accompani ment, so strict is the censorship and so closely drawn ia it as to racial and na tional lines. And, after all, it is rather gratifying that the readers wf the Amer ican newspapers are not to be compelled to peruse all the inaccuracy and specula tion which these correspondents might be forced to send home under pretense of earning their salaries. A great deal of extraneous matter, too, is sent along under the guise of war news, filling much space but adding little to the sum total of knowledge concerning the progress of the war. Thus it is not at all discon certing that the war correspondents of the American newspapers are not likely to get within a great many miles of the p ... i .U.11 k scene 01 wariare, Decaune we bu w free from a great deal of reading mat ter of doubtful value.

Howe would like to be the next governor of Vermont, ana maices that announcement in a very strong and forceful letter in which he states some of the changes that he would advocate in our state government, tie wouia make a good governor but Lmouie county is for Fleetwood. Morrisvuie News and Citizen. Mr. Dunnett's Announcement. The announcement that Alexander Dunnett of St. Johnsbury would be a candidate for Congress from the second istrict is easily the most significant politica! news that has come from the east side this summer. It means that the Republicans of that istrict will have a chance to vote for a man of marked intellectual power, a leg islator of proved ability, a public officer ' integrity and emciency. a candidate hose rmblic and private life have dem onstrated his positive and unquestioned litness tor the onice. Even though the field already includes John W. Gordon of Barre, Porter 11. Hale of Island Pond and possibly Walter Husband and W. J. Bigelow of Mr. Dun nett's home town, the anticipated result this more recent announcement would teem to be a concentration of the forces f his friends in St. Johnsbury and Cal donia county, with the probability that Mr. Punnett would immediately become leading candidate. Mr. Dunnett is eminently fitted to rep resent the second district in an able manner, while his knowledge of public flairs and his experience in legislative nd legal matters would appear to be n invaluable asset for the congressman from the east side.

Howe has announced himself a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor nd declares that owing to illness snd financial inability he will not make a campaign prior to the nomination. In this his attitude is similar to that ol Messrs. Fleetwood and Clement. Mr. Howe's announcement covers a ide variety of topics and his concep tion of the duty of a governor is thst he should devote "his counsel and in- uence toward solving the problems or the state." He also favors free use of the veto power. The lieutenant srovemor does not em phasize .the executive character of the flice of governor and in his view tn principal public issues of the state may be stated thus: Municipal bonds to be authorized only by two-thirds vote of at least 25 per nt of all the voters; Authority for business . manager or municipal commission; Uniform system ot town accounting nd co-operation between towns for effl ient road building; Make no state appropriations that call for new tax levy; state to live within its income; . Lump sum for compensation of legis lators; Reduce superior court to thiee judges, unior justices of supreme court to go on circuit; Abolish the Senate; Extension of rural credits and redue-" tion of tax on money loaned by savings banks at 5 per cent or less; Reduce taxation; Enact workmens compensation act; Continue state aid of state colleges nd issue special text book dealing with 'erinont rcouree, business, etc.; State orphans' home; 'Cleaner elections, direct primary, im- ed hig;hwsvs, help for victims of 12 habit and reform of criminals, de- orment of state resources. r Mnrv of these propossls are accepted ate doctrines, the most radical being proposal to abolish the Senate by stitutional amendment and to estab lish state home for orphans and for hiltren of psrents who fail to support them. Mr. Howe comes out squarely as a Republican and believes that the state psrtr platform snd ticket should repre sent "n-ither the blandishments of Wealth nor the scheming of politics! -' While he believe that the Ni nations! Demorrstic administration ' jj1 should he rebuked, he warns the voters j" nn n nrmit "r1fih snd ambitious t A -r..l intn nlas .nd oower or ! IT ... . ...... , , of the agreement itself, which, so far as the Boston & Mains ia concerned, reads as follows: "As to the Boston A Maine it is to be adjudicated, the facts being set forth in petition and answer, that the control of the Boston A. Maine by the New Haven is in violation of the Sherman act and must be completely parted with by Jan uary 1, 1917, unless for good cause the court grants additional time. ; "If by July l, lUlo, the .fw naven and the Massachusetts legislature agTee on terms on which this control shall be parted with satisfactory to the United States and approved by the court, such plan shall be adopted by order of the couit. "In case no such plan becomes effec tive by July 1, 1815, the court shall upon application of any party to the suit de termine the terms and order them car ried out. The New Haven shall at once give irrevocable proxy to the trustees, heretofore agreed upon as liquidators, to vote its stock in the holding company and they shall thereafter exercise all the powers incident thereto." From this it is evident that, in ease the Massachusetts legislature should not remove at the next session the restric tion on the sale of the Boston A Maine shares which has been embodied in the "string" legislation, the question of the equitable disposition of those shares would be referred to the federal court for adjudication. In no event, however, will it be necessary that the Boston A Msine shares be sold prior to January 1, 1017, and then an appeal to the court for additional time could be made. The precise terms of the agreement concerning the sale of the Boston A Maine- merit this publication in order thst inaccurate reports of the transac tion, so important to New, England, may be checked. Already statements have been given to the public not entirely fair, perhaps, to all the parties con ccrned. There has been no "surrender" by the New Haven company in dealing with the government. It has yielded nothing of the position taken when the "string" legislstion was enacted. The directors were prepared a month ago, before the dissolution suit was filed, to make terms on these very lines. In now agreeing to leave to the court the ques tion of the New Haven's claim as to the damaging effect of the "string" Isw of Massachusetts, in ease th Massachu setts legislature, after further considera tion, should refustj to modify the act, the government retraces Its steps and takes exactly the position which ap peared so reasonable, and at the sam time so desirable from all points of view, a month ago. ' But the question which side has "yield ed" Is relatively of small consequence. The government commands respect for being brave enough to modify an atti tude too stiff and severe. In any event, it must find a complete Justification for Its changed policy In dealing with th New Haven in the extraordinary conditions that have lately arisen. The New Haven directors may be trusted to do their best, In the altered situation, to carry faithfully Into effect the new dis solution compact and to conserve the in terests of the public as well as the prop erty In their care.

Here in New England the possible or probsble effect of the European war upon the shoe manufacturing industry is of very grest importance, and there has been a tendency to taice a pessimiatic view of the situation. On of Boston's leading financial experts told the New lork World that ew England is bound to be hit hard in her boot and shoe in dustry because the European demand is going" to fall off so heavily. In the eleven months or tne isst nscai year, ending May 30, the total value of our boots and shoes wss $16.(117,000 which was suhntantisllr the same ss in the corresponding period in the previous yesr and far ahead of the results achiev ed in 1012. Obviously this is an im portant item in our export trade, but it is desirable to note where this trsde goes. Ihe New lork Commercial has looked up the figures and finds thst of this totsl Europe txk 4,3I2.IH0, but as we will be cut oft" from only a part of this European business, it is probable thst our exports will amount to at least 2.0tK).0O( worth of boots and shoes. without talcing account of such busi ness as will come our wsy in the ehspe of army contracts. The chsnces are. therefore, that the army contracts will more than make up the loss of trade in other classes of footwear sold in Europe. The Commercial goes on to show thst Cuba alone buys more shoes in the t nited States thsn any other country in the world. Next to Cuba comes Can ada. Canada and Cuba together bought about fl,e000 orth of shoes and the rest of our mIcs sbroad were to Latin Ameri-en Republics. The Philippine ilsnd and about half a million dollsra to "all other countries." Argentina, Chili. Brazil and Mexico have alwara bonpht high r'sss footwear for women in Europe. As the position of the boot and shoe makers strikes the trsde ex pert with hom the New York Com mercial is in touch, the probabilities are that these mmif iu-t urrrs will be one of the r!se thst v. ill pain it from this sr intd of losing anything by it.
