Fisher Praises the Attitude of Americans as They Waited to Be Rescued from the Tor pedoed Tuscania. Losing everything except what he had on, Lieut. Max C. Fisher came out un Harmed irom his ternlde experience when the transport Tum-ania, on which he was a passenger, was torpedoed and sunk off the northern coast of Ireland, according to letters just received by his wife, Mrs. Marguerite (Brown) Fisher, and his father, Fred t Fisher, of Barre. The young officer wrote little about the actual incidents of the sinking but he paid tribute to Mie coolness of the Amer icana when they realized that their trans port had received its death blow. He was in Ireland at the time of writing the letters and reported that the Americans were being splendidly treated. Extracts from the two letters are here given: "In the North of Ireland. Feb. 10. "That my cable was delivered I feel sure, because we now understand that the news of the sinking of the Tuscania was published in America on Thursday, so they would certainly allow cables from the survivors to go" through. Since we landed I have been extremely busy assisting the statintical officers and hare had no time to write, and even if I hid. 1 lacked the assurance that a letter would be delivered. But now I think I shall try to get a letter through (I wrote one on the day following the torpedoing of the ship, which you may have re ceived) and I shall endeavor to keep nit anything which would prevent the letter from -reaehing ycm. 1 - "While the experience is one I would not care to have repeated, it was grati fying in that the American troops be haved so well. There was an absence of confusion greatly to be commended, and a total lack of panic. Even when some of the lifeboats were found to have been rendered useless hy the explo sion, there was no dismay expressed and all patiently awaited their turn at the side of the ship.

C. Carl Heinrich Lyw, a German alien, whose record in the past nine months in dicates that he has given the federal au thorities a good deal of trouble, was placed under arrest in this city Saturday afternoon by . Deputy 1. S. Marshal George F Lackey. A warrant for the young German's apprehension arrived irom Washington, I). C, shortly before it was served. Low was committed to ih.; Washington county jail, where he is to be detained until his ease is disposed of. It seems probable that the painter will be interned. Ho has been residing at 2S Pearl street and it was there that he received sum mons by telephone Saturday afternoon to report at Barre police headquarters. Low obeyed with alacrity and showed no resentment when the deputy read him the warrant. Low is one of three German alien ene mies who registered with Chief Sinclair early in February, when the department of justice set apart a definite period for registration of German aliens. Previous- ly, the police claim. Low went to a local machine shop and there proutid d -n his thumb- and finger-tips, apparently with the intention of thwarting any attempt to take his finger prints on the registra tion blank. The police were watching Iow, but they said nothing to him about the machine shop incident, and when the proper time came the pa'inter with three of his countrymen, fulfilled all the regis tration requirements. It will be recalled that Low gave the county registration official some trouble in 1917, and for several weeks he was de tained in the county jail, only to recei.e his liberty, after the stipulation hfld been made that he should report weekly to the chairman of the local board. Ou his latest registration papers Low pave his birthplace as Bonbaden, Germany. He has been in America for six years, two of which he has passed in Barre, having come here to enter the employ of Luit pold Xuissl. another painter whose pres- i ent whereabouts is unknown.

Mrs. Bradley and Mrs, Forrest Bellows, contributed selections during the evening, and toward the close of the rally, after Mr. Plumley had con cluded his remarks, the audience nng "America." Benediction was pronounced by the chairman. The sneaker's well known oratories powers were brought out advantageously in his stirring appeal for the abolition of Ine open saloon and for nearly two hours the audience followed him closely. Mor al, economic and legislative aspects of the Iniuor problem were considered ty Mr. Plumley, who opened his address with an attack on statements which, he said, were made in The Times by advo cates of license. As for his own town he said that early trials of license had convinced the voters that dry conditions were much preferable, and that at the present time no one had occasion to worry about the outcome of the vote at each'March election. We are living in times when we are becoming more and more alive to the fact that our enemy is one of the most sinister forces in written history. He referred to Germany and said that nothing can stand between ns and victory if we conserve in every di rection, that next to the titanic struggle which is being waged over there is the important struggle here at home, a struggle to save all of the elements nec essary for food. Turning to the newspaper advertise ment which, he said, was captioned, "Voters Attention." he denied the state ment therein contained that a "no" ma jority in Barre will make it unlawful to shin liquor, beer or wine into Barre for private consumption, or, broadly speak ing, for beverage purposes. The speaker asserted that the Reed amendment, so called, was offered by Senator Keed of Missouri when the 'Jones-Randall bill was pending. It affects only states that have declared for prohibition, he went on, and does not 'operate in dry towns where the state regulation is through local option. Mr. Plumley said the li cense people, so far as they quoted the amendment, quoted it correctly, although their conclusions were wrong. r Vermont is not a prohibition state and therefore the Keed amendment la not ellective. Again directing his attention to a newspaper advertisement, which, he said, was inserted by the liquor interests, be attacked the claim that "no" majorities will shift the burden of paving taxes amounting to $77."),lKK),OlM) if this extra revenue is not derived from revenue. He described this statement as camouflage and went on to say that the liquor ped dled out by boot ieggers is taxed, and that the government, after getting the revenue therefrom, is not concerned with how it is retailed. The advertisements, in both- instances, have no force when dissected by thinking men. Mr. Plum ley described as a pretty expensive un dertaking the payment of the JfTT.'i.OOO. 000 through the liquor interests, for he said later in the evening that the liquor people charge $2,000,000,000 for the col lection and that the people have to pay another two billion to care for the un- WOMEN HOLD THE WHIP HAND Newly Enfranchised Voters Expected to Swing h Election ' ' CHIEF CONTESTS ' ON LICENwK ISSUE c Sharp Contest.

Seaman Lewis, who enlisted in the navy last May, was called to service on June 1 and was for a time located on a 17. S. battleship, being then transferred to the transport. Un this latter vessel he has made five trips, across the At lantic ocean and experts to leave short ly on the sixth trip. He likes the work very much. He has seen submarines on practically every trip but his boat was so well protected by destroyers that the U-boats were unable to get in an effec tive attack.

Father McKenna Says There Have Been No Wineless or Beejess Days. From bis pulpit in St. Monica's church at the morning service yesterday, l'ev. P. M. MeKenna preached his annual pre election temperature sermon, and urged constable or tax collector charged such fee the voters would call him a robber. If no harm came from the sale of liquor it might be wise to vote to con tinue it. But it is harmful, said the speaker, and here he proceeded to attack the old argument that alcohol has tooa and medicinal value. Every physician of standing calls it a narcotic and a poison. said Mr. Plumley, and it is held in such low estimate that it has been barred from the I'nited States pharmacopoeia. Dr. Grout, recently superintendent of the state hospital at Waterbtirv. has de clared that there is no place for alcohol m the stomach, that it is not a medicine when taken internally, though it may have some value when applied externally. t ontinuing, the speaker said that it is not the man who gets drunk, but the so called regular, temperate drinker who is seriously disturbed by alcohol, who is mentally and physicially depressed by its use. Alcohol reduces the efficiency of a man 8 per cent. He quoted statis tics to show that 12 days of moderate drinking reduces a man's mental efficien cy 7, per cent, his mathematical efficien cy, if he be proficient in figures, 40 per lent. Mr. Plumley went on to quote comparative figures in North and South Dakota, two states admitted to state-; hood about, the same time. In the for-1 One of the quietest municipal election in a decade seems in prospect for to morrow, and while it is trim that com paratively little interest in the outcome of the ballots to lie taken has been de veloped in the past few weeks, it is also true that the situation with respect to the license question and the mayoralty election is of a nature not to encourage predictions. Bcvond a doubt Barre will cast a large vote for the county tuber culosis sanatorium, and as the referen dum is county wide, it is essential that this important matter shall not be over looked. That, apart from the license question, the election of a mayor, and an aldermanic contest in the fourth ward, is the only issue of more than passing importance on to-morrow's slate. Thero is a total of 2,"i!2 names on the checklist, as against 2,107 a year ago, the enfran chisement of women accounting largely for the gam. Among 17 offices to be filled by the voters there is more than one candidate for only two of them. The caucus nom inee for mayor, K. (7. Glysson, is opposed by Alderman Clyde H. Reynolds of the fourth ward, who filed nomination pa pers as an independent candidate. The mayoralty campaign this year has been unusually torpid, so far as surface ap pearance have indicated, although each candidate has conducted something of a quiet canvass. For the very reason that open expressions or opinion on tne re- pective merits ol the two candidates have not been numerous, election proph ets are pretty much at sea, forecasts are few, and the outcome is much in doubt. Down in ward 4, Duncan McMillan, jr., the caucus nominee for alderman, has an opponent in the person of Charles R. Gal lagher, who filed papers. Mr. McMillan made a strong show ing in the caucus and old-timers in the fourth look for a Mc Millan victory. However, ward 4 has been known to develop some surprises, and the outcome of the voting there cannot be predicted with any measure of certainty. A large proportion of the electorate seems to be centering its interest on the liquor question. No-license people have made a spirited campaign and are rather confident that the mustering of many women to their banner will swing the city back into the "dry" column. Wom en vote on all municipal questions to morrow for the first time, and it is gen erally conceded that they hold the bal anced power. People who favor the re tention of regulation in handling the liquor traffic say that the practical pro hibition of spirituous liquors has taken the most objectionable feature away from the open saloon, and their argu ment has it that hereafter so-called first clasa licenses will mean only beer and light wine licenses. Advocates of regu lation have cited the P.eed amendment in an effort to show that a "no" majority will mean a bone-dry Barre. Over against these arguments Barre voters who have consistently opposed any legal extension of the liquor traffic argue that the war, if no other reason. is sufficient to cause all patriotic people to vote out the saJoon. But there are other reasons, they assert, and a good many of the arguments which have op erated to the extermination of the saloon elsewhere have been used with apparent effectiveness in the past few weeks. The open saloon, it is said, has failed to justify its renewed lease ot lite in warre, and among its opponents there is a real determination this year to end the traf fic.
