The latest war is in Brattleboro a re
volt against the $700,000 increase by the
quadrennial appraisal. The listers say
the raise was made because of the de
mand for real estate, and against that
petitioning taxpayers point out several
properties which have been on the mar
ket for a long time without finding pur
chasers. The listers' duties are not the
most calculated to cause general satis
faction because it is not possible to sat
isfy a community with unanimity.
The reports of attendance at the Re
publican caucuses throughout ' Vermont
last week are to the effect that the cau
cuses were controlled by an unusually
small percentage of the members of that
party, barring those few communities
where contests developed. In places hav
ing several hundred voters, at least half
of which are Republicans, there was as
small an attendance as 15 at the cau
cuses, showing how easy it might be for
manipulation of the nominations provid
ing a few voters were disposed to exert
their influence in that direction. If the
direct primary will give anything like
more true representation of the party,
it will be welcomed with all sincerity by
the Republican party, as well as as by
the other parties.
According to the assertion of State
Auditor Graham, the saving of the state
of Vermont during one fiscal year from
the policy of purchasing state supplies
through a single agent has amounted to
$25,000. Such being the case, it is a
remarkable demonstration of the efficien
cy of a system of having state purchas
ing agent, a system which has been in
operation little more than a single year.
This system includes the policy of com

It was not surprising to some people
that a protest should have arisen in the
United States because of the fact that
practically all the news of the European
war was coming from the side of the al
lies while the German side was all but
neglected, inasmuch as the German peo
ple constitute the largest proportion of
the foreign-born population in the United
States. According to the figures of the
cenBus of 1010, this department of which
has just been tabulated, there were
2,501,181 people in the United States
who were born in Germany, leading all
other countries by nearly one-half.
However, those Germans might to have
become familiar enough with American
ways and American institutions to know
that when it comes to the matter of in
formation the American people are not
biassed enough to desire news merely of
one side of the encounter to the exclu
sion of the other side. It deserves to be
stated, too, at this time that the Ger
mans have been getting their full share
of the distinction during the latter weeks
of the war. This is not because the
temper of the American people has
changed in any way, nor because their
sympathies have been altered; but it is
due to the fact of changed conditions
both as to the progress of the war and
as to moans of communication. Where
as the Germans were balked somewhat
at the outset by the fierceness of the
Belgian defense, they have been making
progress morer ecently in western Europe
and the tide of the war has been largely
ith them. At the same time, the wire
less direct communication between Ger
man v and the United States has replaced
the cable, the service from which was
early cut by the allies. Therefore, we
are hearing less fault-finding among- our
German people regarding the one-sided-
ness of the war news.

Again, Vermont at a Summer Resort.
, The Landmark, as has been its wont
at various times, calls attention to the
possibilities of Vermont as a summer
resorted, prompted thereto, on. this occa
sion, by the almost daily repetition in
Boston and New York papers of the
statement that these August days aee
New Hampshire, from its southern to its
northern boundary, filled to overflowing
with the auromer tourist and boarder.
Until the late October frosts appear, and
even into November, the hotels of many
of the state's resorts will be filled with
vacationists from outside cities and
states, and all the whole these visitors
will be sonsuming the New Hampshire
farmer s milk, butter, fruit and vegeta
bles. In years pajst, the annual income
of the Granite state from its summer
resort business has been estimated at
from seven to nine millions of dollars,
while this year it may reach the splendid
sum of ten millions of dollars. This in
come came to the Btate as the result of
a well-managed publicity bureau or state
system of advertising. To-day New
Hampshire's summer boarder business is
a fixture, permanently established and
bound to bo a continuous source of finan
cial income to thousands of farmers, as
well as the owners of hotels.
Many who made a vacation stay in
New Hampshire passed through Vermont
by train or auto to get there. Why did
he not stop in Vermont, for he was im
mensely pleased with its scenery and en
vironment? Simply because he knew of
no place where the summer tourist is
entertained. The condition of Vermont
highways made the trip for the auto
tourist across the state and into New
Hampshire all the easier and quicker,
and this, too, at the expense of the Ver
mont taxpayer. Had the tourist stayed
in Vermont for a week, or, better still,
for a month, his financial expenditures
would have helped pay the costs of high
way maintenance. To get the summer
tourist to pass the season in Vermont
is an easv possibility, and when is con
sidered how great would be the financial
and economic advantages of such a reali
zation, it is indeed strange that the state
has not long since been made a popular
summer resort. White River Junction
C. 0. Bashaw, a Rutland Lineman,
Burned on Hands and Feet.
Rutland, Aug. 31. C. O. Bashaw, a
lineman employed by the Rutland Rail
way Light & Power company, narrowly
escaped death by electrocution Saturday
night when 4,500 volts of electricity
pawned through his body. The young
man's hands and feet were badly burned
but aside from this he seemed to suffer
no ill effects from the shock. Mr.
Bashaw with Walter B. Carrigan, fore
man for the company, were investigating
a complaint at the corner of River and
Grange streets about 7:30 o'clock. Mr.
Rsshaw was shaking a heavy wire cable
which supports an arc light and it is
supposed that this came in contact with
heavily charged wires which feed the
lamp. Bashaw was rendered speechless
and but for the prompt action of Car
rigan, who grabbed his fellow workman
by the coat and broke his contact with
the wire, would have probably been
killed. He was unconscious for a half
hour but first aid methods, assisted by
the efforts of physicians who soon ar
rived, brought Bashaw back to his
senses. He was removed to his home
where it was said last night that he
would recover.
