PROHIBITION IS BIG ISSUE IN NORWAY Prediction Is Made That Country-Wide Policy Will Be Adopted in the Near Future Wlne-Producinj Coun tries in Europe Dissatisfied. ChrUtiania, Norway, Oct. 23. The prohibition movement which, since the beginning of the war, has been gaining momentum In all the Scandinavian coun tries, has become in Norway a leading iwtue in the present political campaign. Gnudar Knudnen, the prime minUter, stated in a recent speech that country wide prohibition would be an achieve ment of the near future. Hut except among Socialist and radical circles which have strongly espoused the prohibition cause, it is thought that the economic and international complications result ing from such reform will make it impracticable or at leant inadvisable. The wine-producing Kurojiean coun tries do not look favorably upon the cur tailment of their liquor exports to Nor wav. and it ia felt here that in the case of prohibition reforms, they will under take reprisals which will seriously injure the commercial and financial standing of the country. In ltX'9, when the legisla ture raed a bill restricting the import of French winea, Norwegian bonds were refused a ratine on the Pan exchange. and the bill was repeal.-.!. The French d-clarstion, made at this time, to the effect that France would assume the lib erty of making such an answer to any Norwrgtaa rgilatHn detrimental to Frances wine trade, is still in force. France. Stain and Portugal, according to a tariff declaration of lulu, will dou ble the duty on articles imported from count rim which throw difficulties in the nay of the wine trad-r. The Norwegian exports to th countries are aeicral million dollar in excess of the imports, and any Interference with th.e exp.rts would work- a rius commercial injury to Norway. Norway, at pr--nt. enjoys the "mot favorwl nation" clsume in her o.mrmTcial tr.-tir with France. If Franc ferls that her wine etports to Norway are IwinaT rtrKt-d, he may. aeoord.ng t the tariff dwlarafion al ready menti-d. tske any etr the eirrwmtn' dictate," including the raiir.(f of harbor iui for Norweirisa htps in French harbors, which will make it difficult f Norway to eoai-te with otb.-r itKti.

Joyce's Body to be Shipped to Westminster, Where Military Funeral Urobably Will be Held. ' : Brownsville, Tex., Oct. 23. Prepara tions were made yesterday to ship the bodies of soldiers killed Thursday by Mexicans. That of Private Martin F. Joyce will be sent to Leslie G. Con verse, Westminster, Vt. Westminster, Oct. 23. The announce ment that the body of Private Martin F. Joyce, U. S. A., who was killed by Mex ican raiders Thursday at Ojo Do Agua, Tex., on the banks of the Rio Grande, will be brought here for burial contains a touch of pathos beyond that which cornea with the chronicling of the death of the young American soldier. Unaware that his brother had died for his coun try, Harold Joyce died this morning at the Westmoreland, N. II., almshouse, a pauper. The brothers were orphans. When eight years old, Leslie G. Con verse of Westmoreland Depot, X. II., now of this town, adopted Martin Jyi and the boy lived in the Converse fam ily until he was 18, when he went to Springfield, Mass., where he was em ployed about a year. Ho gave up work there to enlist and had been in the service five years. s Though it is not known when the body will arrive it is believed that ar rangements will be made for a military funeral and that a detail from company E of Bellows Falls will act as escort and accord the usual honors. MEXICO'S CORN HARVEST. 55,000,000 Bushels are Expected to be Garnered. Mexico City, Oct. 23. The corn har vest has begun with the prospect that about 65,000,000 bushed will be gar nered. As the normal crop totals in the neighborhood of 130,000,000 bushels, hich is insufficient for Mexico's lo,- 000,000 inhabitants, the misery and dis tress which has prevailed for months past will be greatly accentuated during the winter mouths. . , American Red Cross representatives have tried vaiuly for the past fortni,t to purchsse corn and other cereals -and have finally been compelled to place their J : . ,1.. T - ' i 1 k.' . .. 1 h.UL orders in the United State with the hope that delivery will be made in time to relieve the grave situation which the Mexican poor will have to face during the cold winter. Corn is still selling at a prohibitive price for those who need it and the prospective crop snortage i 60 per cent will greatly increase even this price. WOODMEN WELCOMED OFFICERS.

COURT DECIDED COM PLAINT SUFFICIENT Hearing Was to Have Been Held To-day in Jitney Driver's Case . A demurrer to the complaint filed by Grand Juror AVllliam Wishart against Jacob Aaron, a Montpelier jitney driver, charged with operating his auto careless ly, was heard by Magistrate II. W. Scott in city court this forenoon and overruled, upon whjch action attorneys for the re spondent announced their decision to carry the demurrer to supreme court. Aaron's bail of $100, fixed earlier in the week, was continued and jurors who had been empaneled were allowed to go. Xearly a dozen witnesses subpoenaed , in behalf of the state were paid off and told that their testimony would not be needed at that time.. Soon after his jitney is alleged to have run down a milk team driven by Arthur Barber on upper North Main street Tues uay evening, Aaron was arrested and put, under bail. The respondent retained At torneys J. Ward Carver of this city and W, A. Lord of Montpelier and the case was set for hearing to-day. This fore- , noon a jury consisting of J. G. More, H. 0.

Cave appeared, but the demurrer presented by the respondent through his counsel halted the hearing. Aaron s attorneys declared in their de murrer that the prosecuting attorney, nt making his complaint, failed to set up specifically in what street and in what manner the alleged careless driving was done. Magistrate Scott held that the form complied with the statutory re quirements and exceptions were immedi ately taken. NEW BASKETBALL LEAGUE.
