Franeiseo Villa i still alive and as lonx as he remains so there is likelj to be discord in Mexico. A mild degree of interest centers in what the Vermont Republicans will do at Montpelier on Wednesday evening of this week. The convention is the can opener which pries the lid off politics in Vermont. Trappings of German royalty sold cheap on the. auction block in New York last week. Someway the glamor about the Hohenzollern has been dimmed, and their fittings out are re duced to mere metal and wood. The arrival in Vermont of a few hoiicwt-to-goodnesa airplanes, not of the Fourth of July or carnival variety, seems to have stimulated interest to a considerable extent. Several cities and towns are waking up to the prospect of becoming landing centers for tour ing planes. The action of the Vermont Marble company in encouraging its employees to invest a part of their earnings each week in government securities or bank deposits has resulted in the choice of the men to set, abide each week enough to make the total savings for the year $31 52. The example ought to be fol lowed in other industrial concerns in Vermont, for it is bound to be pro ductive of habits of thrift to counter act the reckless spirit of the present day among, many people. DRAFT DODGER BERGDOLL It looks to be a case of thorough in vestigation by a department of the United States government to deter mine in what way the wealthy young draft dodger of Philadelphia, Grover Cleveland Bergdoll by name, was per mitted to have his freedom for three days for the ostensible purpose of go ing out to seek $150,000, that part of his fortune which he had buried short ly before his initial flight from the gov ernment, to .escape military service. What official persons permitted the wool to be pulled over their eyes in such a manner is a proper matter for investigation, and after that is ascer tained the next subject for inquiry would be to find out why two non-com-mihsioned officers of the United States army allowed themselves to be in veigled into letting Bergdoll get out of their sight for a moment, knowing, as they must have known, about his ini tial flight and his defiance of the Unit ed States government, not to forget al so the bold act of the young man's mother in trying to prevent officers from arresting her son after the officers had found the dodger concerned in a hall scat of his luxurious home in Philadel phia. In the meantime, while that inves tipation is going on there thould be a res olute move on the part of the govern ment anemies to ferret out the hiding place of the young man and to bring him in, $150,000 and all providing that sum is anything but ft pot of gold hung on a rainbow. Such ft Cap tain Kidd adventure as going out to find $150,000 which had been buried is worth relating by the chief actor of the little drama. Bergdoll is the man to tell the story. He ought to be strongly persuaded to come forward and take the center of the stage. Every body look for Bergdoll.

The Peoples National Bank of Barre 4 per cent The Only National Bank in Barre 4 per cent cause of his loyalty to the state. Many people regretted to have Mr. Plumley go away; so they will gladly welcome him back. rRF.SlDEN'T KLKCT riXMLF.Y OF NORWICH UMVKRSITY. F.ver since his graduation from Nor wich university in 181'fl, and presum ably from a time conidcrably prior to tlit date. Charles A. Plumley has been an enthusiastic Norwich man, being foremost in the councils of the uni versity, a trustee and s strong booster lT the intitution at Northficld. So it i not to be wondered st that Mr. Plumley received a derisive majority o: the trustc vute in fsor of election as president of the uoiversity.

Althourrh Venustiano Carranza, presi dent of the republic, of Mexico, was dictatorial, irascible and, apparently misguided, there is no proof that Mexi co will be better off with' him dead than it was when he -was alive. Car- ranza ruled with a stern hand as far as his strength permitted him and he held the part of Mexico with Mexico City as its center in quite firm control for a period of approximately five years. But as Carranza came into power on a wave of unrest, so he, too, became a victim of unrest; and during the greater part of his regime he was compelled to make war on and resist revolutionary bands, including that of Villa, the bandit lead er. Continually it was a fight for Car ranza to hold his own against the dis satisfaction of the subjects of Mexico and although Carranza, was chosen president of the republic in 1917 by the largest popular vote even recorded in that country he sank into disrepute in the northern section of the country and then over practically the entire nation. What influenza Carranza's antagonistic attitude toward the United States may have had in undermining his support is not certain. It would be unwise, per haps, to assert that that attitude had any strong bearing on the final chapter of his romantic career, inasmuch as the general feeting in Mexico is said to be somewhat hostile to the United States. It goes without saying, however, that Carranza's brazen effrontery to the United States in the face of the fact that the government at Washington had seen fit to recognize in him the de facto eovernment of Mexico went far toward making Carranza ft roan held in little esteem throughout the world. He was looked upon as a man of no great principles as regards international mor ality; he was considered as a man who would cast his lot wherever it seemed most feasible for him so to do. For a long time during the war it was suspected that he was in sympathy witn uer many if not flagrantly planning with Germany to defeat the United States and the allies. The revelation of the Zimmerman note, while not explicitly showing that Carranza was plotting against the United States, gave rise to the belief that he was not above such activity and led the world as a whole to regard him as ft national leader not to be trusted. Carranza was not friend ly to the United States; his succes sor may not be any more so. In that respect the change will not tend to the benefit of the United States govern ment, which has had a constant worry ever since Carranza has been in con trol, any more than the death of Car ranza may prove to be advantageous to Mexico itself. Mexico deserves a chance to make good among the na tions, but it will not he. able to do-so if another man of the Carranza state of mind gets control. A Bird of Aa Idea.

Little question for this week: Is Emery bone dry when he speaks in Waterbury and damp when he talks to the Italians in Barret Northfield News, The above is a fair sample of the way Babbitt papers are slamming Mr, Emery. Did you like it? The salesman who runs down a firm he is in competition with is called, "a poor drummer." His firm, if it keeps him, is one to avoid doing business with, unless you want "to get stung." If this kind of tactics does not pay in business, it will not pay in politics. Why is Mr. Babbitt a better man than Mr. Emery, for governor? His papers do not say, but resort to personal innuendo like the above. Why? The natural- inference is they know Mr. Emery is the best man. Mr. Emery has lived a clear, consist ent life. He treats all alike, uses them as he would like to be used. Never a drinking man, he has al ways respected the rights and opin ions of those who did not think as he did, on this and other questions. He has straddled no question. He has never tried to get office by appealing to some popular idea. He has won friends, and some of fices, because he has always been "on the square." That is why in Orange county ,in Newport and where he is best known, everybody is for Emery. They know him. He is one of the people; a plain farmer's boy; made his way in the world by his own efforts; knows what people want; and as governor, will do his best to see that all the people "get a square deal." Morrisville Messenger. Why Not Druggists' License? The Randolph Herald and News re cently called attention to conditions in Vermont under the federal prohibitory amendment in which it is impossible to secure liquor prescribed by ft physician for a sick person. That liquor is not legally obtainable in Vermont for any purpose is a fact. But it is not because of the law. It is because Vermont druggists refuse to take out licenses under the law to furnish intoxicating liquors for medicinal purposes. .The real situation is this: Many towns at the March meetings voted to grant the issuance of druggists' li censes, making .it possible for many Vermont druggists to get a state li cense. The federal law provides for li censing druggists to sell liquor for medicinal purposes and specifically states under what restrictions. It is evident then Vermont druggists can fumibh liquor for medicinal purposes if they are willing to comply with the requirements of law. Further light on the rights of drug gists is given in an opinion given to the .Massachusetts ftoara 01 registra tion in pharmacy by Attorney tieneral Allen of that state, who holds that the word "concurrent" in the federal pro hibition amendment permits the state and nation to pass such enforcement l-laws as each legislative authority may deem proper and enables each to en force its own law. He closes his opin ion with this statement: "I am, therefore, of opinion that the so-called Volstead act does not nullify the provisions of our state law in re gard to druggists' licenses. But a state license does not in any way relieve dnigiflsts from the necessity of procur ing in addition a license under the fed eral law. A state license only author izes the sale of liquor for medicinal purposes insofar as the law of this .ommonwealth is eonrerned. The drug gist must in addition comply with the federal law. This point should be made absolutely clear to those to whom such lirenses are issued." This opinion seems as good for Ver mont as for Massachusetts. In vie of the fact that many towns have voted to grant dnutgists' lir'enses the ques tion why do not ermoni orugRisia take out the necessary licenses and fur limiors for medHnal purposes j comes pertinent.
