The lirst dintrU't of VViUiamatowii is boing awakened to the need of better tire protection in the district. The spirit ahould never be allowed to subside. I'ercival W. Clement, appointed to the state board of edueation by Governor J'leteher in the lat few days of the ex eeutive s administration, will not con tinue to serve if fiovernor (Jutes does not want him. Like report concerning the new appointees on the supreme bench is not confirmed. The French showed splendid persist oncy in their fight, for Steinbach, and the accomplishment of their aim must be extremely satisfying, inasmuch as the capture marks an important step in the recovery of Alsace that was torn from them 4.) years ago. The decisive result also means, without doubt, an important break in the German line of defense. The counties of Rutland and Washing ton are having a close race in automo bile registration, with Rutland leading at the end of the 1014 lap. In this matter, well as in others of greater moment, Rutland and Washington counties are getting to be the real rivals for first place in Vermont. Over here we are will ing to admit that Rutland county is a worthy competitor, too. The decision of the Harvard Medical school to reduce the requirements for entrance from a college degree to a two years course in college may indicate the first pinch of competition with other medical colleges in its section of the country. It will be recalled that Har vard Medical college was more or less the model of the Carnegie Foundation in reporting on the Vermont Medical college.

Trickery and dap-trap do harm enough when they go no farther than tlm perpetrator and his first victim) but when they stain a nation's good name, .t all its commerce, and poison the judg ment of its rank and tile, they lieooiiie publio dangers, deserving wide exposure and severe repression. Whoever first thought of shipping con traband copper in the heart of a rot- ton bale may have hugged himself as a clever trickster, lie hardly thought what effects tlio cheat might have on all our J'.iiroiieiui exports, iiut this at tempt to ship copper in the guiso of cot ton must bear the bluino for no small part of that suspicion that has worked delay for the bulk of our tram-Atlantic shipments. The selfishness of a few has hurt business through all the country. The. public should know the names of tlio men that took the chance of choking national commerce embarrassed enough at best. .Even worse than such trickery in days as critical us these is tlio traitorous abuse of freedom in printed speech. Or tin u newspapers are now putting tncen diary perversions of tact, there are sneaks that, for longer pay, help the for st lire across the woodroad they under take to guard; there are ghouls that in disaster rob the victims they profess to lie aiding; but these are petty offenders compared with those who rewrite lispatches and color headlines in delib erate effort to kindle a people's fighting temper and fan a blinding excitement. Hoston Herald. One could easily surmise that Senator Reed is from Missouri because of the number of times he demanded to be shown by Senator Dillingham during the course of the latter's speech on immigra tion in the Senate. By actual count in that reliable journal, the Congressional Record, Senator Reed interposed a word fit times and was given courteous hear ing by Senator Dillingham each time, al though it would seem that the bitter on eome occasions bad good reason for being exasperated. THK VERMONT AUTOMOBILE REVENUE. The collection by the state of Vermont of $154.344. 10 from motor vehicles and their 0H'tation during the pant year, as thown by an interesting table in anoth er column, reveals whst an important factor the automobile has lieeonie in the 'cryday life of Vermont as well it) the revfuue-producitig agencies of the state. Indeed, st) great is the revenue derived by the state that it would not be considered remarkable if such commu nities a Barn, Burlington, Rrattlcboto and Rutland tnilit look with envy at the diversion of the entire amount of nut h receipts into the state treasury rather than into local trcssuries by means of bx-al taxation. For inotaiNV, f Bttrre were to reit ie the revenue from j liHsl taxation of automobiles it wiiul'J biing a large sum annually into the city J treasury; and eteti were halt tle pm- ectl from r gistratinn to le riivrrted j i'.to the ll Irioniv it would be a um worth bating.

Hence, it appeared to the com mission that some method should lie de vised to keep down the annual flow of people from other lands; and several proposed plans were canvassed thorough ly. Out of these several proposed rem edies, the commission, excepting one member thereof, became of the opinion that the literacy test was the most feas ible and at the same time the wisest course to pursue; and, in accordance therewith the commission made such defi nite recommendation. It was on the Imsis of that report and recommenda tion that the tortunes ol the bill now in the final stages of completion were fought out. In support of that commis mission's report and in expression of his own deep convictions, Senator Dilling ham took the floor of the Senate and in a forceful presentation did much to in fluence the views of his colleagues when it came to the discussion of that amend ment which would require the literacy test for admission of aliens into the country. In making bis presentation Senator Dillingham drew upon a wide knowledge of the subject of immigra tion and he was able to present facts end statistics which were apparent!' unknown to many of the senators who followed the course of his argument. That the literacy test annulment was finally adopted by the Senate was un doubtedly due in large part to Senator Dillingham's notable address based on l is previous work as chairman of the feoeral immigration commission.

The proposal of Theo N. Vail of Speed well farms to present the state with the agricultural school. Speedwell farms, buildings and stock for educational pur poses is the largest gift ever offered by an individual to the state of Vermont. Mr. Vail was very modest in saying the property be offers could not be duplicat ed for more than $150,000. It could not be duplicated for more than twice that amount. His genorsity is further shown in the offer to allow the state to take a much or as little land as it may decide upon with the fully equipped school. Apparently fir. Vail's purpose is to give the state a fully equipped agricultural school with enough land to form a good endowment to the same. Vermonters will be glad to know the proposed gift does not include "The House" at Speedwell and that Mr. and Mra. Vail expect to maintain a home In Vermont. Just the course of procedure on the part of the state is not known. Doubtless a committee will be appointed by the legislature to investigate the property and determine whether or not the state shall accept and whether the state will try to make the school self supporting or maintain it by appropria tions. Then if it is accepted the proper officials will have to be authorized to ac cept the deed in behalf of the state. There can be little doubt the state will grasp the opportunity to furnish more practical education to its youth. If ac cepted in full there will lie opportunity to maintain, more than an agricultural school, as there . are already quite ex tensive forest plantings besides large orchards on the farm. The state should largely increase its education work as a result of this great offer. To Mr. Vail the completion of the gift would be the consummation of an ear nest desire to offer the boys and girls of Vermont the opportunity to acquire an education for the life they are to live, to secure such a preparation for their work that they can live a wider, fuller and more useful life. High and honorable is Mr. Vail's purpose and its fulfillment would add one more great accomplish ment to a life that has been so full of ef fort and achievement. St. Johnsbury Caledonian.

Seventy "Picture Brides" Arrive to Get warned Nevertheless. San Francisco, Ca Jan. 5. Seventy picture brides from Japan arrived here yesterday on the liner Shinyo Maru to meet husbands they have never seen. Fifty more arrived within tbe week on other steamships. Until the husbands claim them, the brides are being housed on Angel island, the United States detention station. In th eyes of the Japanese law and so for the purposes of the immigration officers, the brides have been married. There has been an exchange of photo graphs, an approval by tne heads of the two contracting families and a formal declaration of intention In writing, be fore a Japanese official. The brides come tagged and numbered, are consequently awarded to the right husbands, and then, usually are taken in hand by the Japanese assoation, which escorts them to the marriage li cense bureau, after which a religious service is held. f ItfloneyAccumulation Is Easy It's the START That's Hard THE OBJECT of our Christmas Club is to offer the easiest possible method for making this beginning, , with the belief that your own inclination to accumulate money will accomplish the desired result.
