Bergdoll, Grover Cleveland,- have you
seen him? If so, notify the U. S. gov
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.
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.

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
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.

Wrong Tactics Against Emery.
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
The above is a fair sample of the
way Babbitt papers are slamming Mr,
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.
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
