Their view of the situation found some support In official quarters, where the greater art of the report received had indi cated a steady growth of the rebellion.

British Newspapers Comment on Con gressmen's Memorandum. London, May 7. Only two of this morning's newspapers comment on the memorandum sent by American con gressmen to Premier Lloyd George rel ative to the Irion situation, and the tone fif their editorials is somewhat re rent ful against "outside interference" in British internal s Hairs. "It is an elementary maxim of the foreign policy of most civilized nations that one state department should not interfere with the internal affairs of enother nation," says The Daily Graph ic, which seems to view the memoran dum as a politics! move. "So legisla tor of any country has the right to imperil the good relationship existing lietween his nation and any other, merely because he wants to attract votes to himself." - The newspaper declares IiUhmen lime the same re.lre. if wronged, that i. 'given any other citizens of the t'nited Kincdom. and it points to the wholesale arrest of bolsbeviki in Amer ica as analogous to the situation in Ireland.

LABOR DENIES PROFITEERING And Points Out That the Wage Increases Are but Small Part of H. C. of L. ONLY 15 PER CENT IN SUGAR'S 300 PER CENT Railway Brotherhoods Pre sent Results of Investiga tion to Railroad Board Washington, D. C, May 7- A study of profiteering in American industry, made under the auspices of the railroad brotherhoods, was presented to tha railroad labor board to-day in support of the railway w-orkers' demands for higher wages and to refute the charge that increased labor costs are responsi ble for the high coBt of living. Prepared by W. J. Lauck, former secretary of .the war labor board, the study seeks to show that profiteering in industry is the fundamental cause for high prices in practically all com modities. It gives many statistic to support that contention. Calling attention to the many war made millionaires, the studr contends that a three-fold relationship exists between high prices, profiteering and the addition to the quota -of million aires" and that the increase in the wealth of the wealthy i an "unan elsewhere refutation" to all attempts to charge labor with profiteering ai;d to all attempts to bold labor responsi ble for the high cost of living. "For, if invested wealth gets a larg er return," says the study, "a larger proportion of the national income than formerly, the man who gives personal service or labor is bound to get a smaller proportion. The menace of the future lies iu the probability that the vast profm which are still hew in re serve will be capitulated in order that, under the pretext of a fair return on capital, those who own them may con tinue to take the larger proportion of national income, evt-n at the expense of vory great suffering pn the part of t he workers, when the over-stimulation of war has passed away." Of the extraordinary increase 'n the price of sugar, now amounting to 300 per cent, the study says toe increase in labor cost paid by the consumer was less than lo per cent. The result of advanced prices, according to the quoted reports of li companies pro ducing over half of the sugar consumed in the United States, was pictured in the net profits of these concerns which it was said rose from an average of tlUHKMMiO during the rears 1912-14 to $3-f,fXK),000 for the years 191H-IH. In tha meat-packing tndustTT, where profits were said to have increased be tween 300 and 400 per cent, the laOor item was shown so small that a wage increase of 100 per cent would add less than five per cent to the total cost of the meat. The increase in price be tween 1A14 and 1918 was shown at eight time the total labor cost, and the 1918 price represented 2.5 times the total labor item. . Profits absorbed approximate; one- half the retail price of certain kinds of cloth, the report, declared, while the labor item amounts to from one-fourteenth to one-twentieth of the price. Similar relations were pictured in the manufacture of men s garments. Jjhoes, according to the studv, "fur nished a splendid opportunity for the profiteer." The profit items in It'll, it was charged, absorbed nearly one-nair the prii'e paid by the consumer, or nearly three times the total labor cost, while in 1917 the profit ilems am mntcd. to approximately three fifths of the to tal and more than five times the total labor cost. Increase in the retail price of bitu minous coal were shown at four times the' increase in labor costs while the rt-oportion of the proceeds of the in dustry received by the coal operators was shown as increa.sed from 5 to 400 per cent. Profit eering did not stop with the ar mistice, the report declares, presenting figures to show that corporation prot its in 1919 were 110 per cent over the pre war average which means, 4he study added, thai 1919 profit we-e more than double the average for the years 1912 1914. An average of $1200 per family of five durinc the veais 19I1S was de clared to lie probably a highly "on-cr-vative estimate of the actual cost of corporal ion profiteering to the con .iimer. Railroad Workers' General Dem.nds. Ci.iiclu linir his Mu.lv. Mr. 1-auek sub mitted the following general demands in the name of the railroad worker! "I- I-abor in Keneral and railroad la bor in particular, must have wage in creases proportionate to advsiw-es in living costs. ''' In the preeut crisis and fjr ail time to come, producers and middlemen must be restrained from advancing pri.s in exce of increase in labor and material costs. .I Producers and mnktenien must refrain from int hiding in.-ome and ex cess profit taxes in their costs, and parsing them on to the consumer with an a1Jed profit. "--The principle of a liing WKge must be accepted and establish in order that normal prodo-m msy be res-torcd and increased produ-t mn hoped for in all fields of indu-try." HOLLAND HOLDS ALOOF.

Senator Johnson has issued the following: "Under no circiirnstances will I accept the Republican nomina tion for the vice-presidency.

The two bovs above mentioned stoutlv denied any knowledge of the affair' the first tiuie,that they were examined. Suspicion rested upon them, hew ever, together with some older hoys, and the two guilty ones finally confessed during a second questioning.

M 1 1 STILL MAKING SUGAR BACK IN GRANVILLE One Producer Gathered 200 Buckets of Sap Last Tuesday. Bethel, May 7. Sugaring is still in progress in Granville and other moun tain sections, of the. White river valley. In Uranvilleion Tuesday Mr. Ford, one of the sugar milkers, gathered 00 buckets of sap. To date he has made 600 gallons of syrup. There has been no hot spell, such aa usually occurs in April. V, Prices for immediate sales have been $1.75 to $2 for syrup in barrels at the Randolph market; .$2..r0 for choice syr up in galllon cans, and 13 for the same quality, when special customers were found, here or elsewhere. There is no doubt that producers, but advertising their goods in the cities, would get. the higher price named iot the whole of their prime product. Many prefer early sales and returns at a less prine. The season was an average one iu this valley. ' E0LD SUGAR FOR RAISE Some Vermont Producers Claim the ( Offer too Low. Burlington, May 7. More than .10 maplo sugar makers, representing prac tically all the maple sugar men in Franklin, Chittenden, Addison and La moille counties, met in the office of the county farm bureau to discuss and fake action concerning the price whkh the dealers have offered them for their product. It is claime'd by the maple sugar makers that the price which has been offered is far below the cost of production, and it was the sentiment of the meeting to hold on to the crop before selling at such a figure. The dealers have offered $2 per gal lon for ungraded syrup in barrel lots and 22 cents per pound for the sugar. This is in excess of the price paid last year but the farmers claim that the Ixist of production in many cases was much more than $3 per gallon a.nd in the lowest cases was $3. An inventory of what goods the farmers present had on hand showed them to possess 3,700 gallons of syrup and 27,000 pounds of sugar. They in reality represent 10 times that amount and if all keep to their word not to sell at the price offer ed but little maple sugar will be bought in these four counties. In other sec tions of the state, similar meeting are being held, and it was the opinion of the farmers that, they would hang on to the crop until better prices were offered.

WAS DEMENTED WHEN HE DID ACT George Dey Slashed Hia Throat Last Evening and Soon Bled to Death HAD BEEN DRINKING, ACTING STRANGELY Killed Himself at the Cv Boardinghouse y a . ...... ' Mam Str' r George. Dey, a,'. Cotter, slaehe) hia throat wit h a "i in his room at the Cleary boarding house at 380 North Main" street, last evening about 5:30 o'clock and before his act was discovf ered tho man had bled to death. , . The last person to see him alive was John Hendrick, who in, passing his room on his way down to supper asked him if he was going to eat. The reply was, "No." While the boarders wer, . seated about the table a strange nois was heard up stairs, believed now to have been the thud of his body, when he fell to the floor. Mr. Cleary, who was just coming to his supper, 'was. informed of the strange actions of Mr, Dey and went to the room to learn tho cause of the disturbance. He was accompanied by John Hendrick, and the two men found the man lying facs downward in a pool of blood. He was pulseless. A doctor and tho chief ol , police were immediately notified. . The jugular vein had been com. pletely severed and the man's head nearly cut off by his act. Apparently he had done this while seated on th edge of the bed, where he was last seen by Mr. Hendrick. His actions of late have been some what peculiar and it is said by several he had been drinking. He was about the Cleary home yesterday all day, acting strangely and causing Mrs, Cleary to become alarmed at his ac tions, though he bore no. signs of in toxication then. For the past four years he had been a faithful worker at the Hebert & Ladrie stoneshed, and with Mr. Ladrie left the care of his bank book and savings. At the time of labor trouble here he drew a considerable sum wlt'i the intention of leaving the city to find employment. Besides his few personal belongings he leaves on miney and a $30 Liberty bond, all of Which are io the care of his employer, who by con siderable persuasion had caused him to leave this in the bank. Dey has no relatives in Barre. so faf as known, though a wife and son, George, are believed to survive him. Ha parted from his family about Feven or eight years ago, hi son going to Scot land, while his wife is believed to ba living in or about Boston. It is expected that the funeral will be held from Perry A Noonan's under, taking rooms to morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
