Vermont was Tight there when It
rams to seconding, the nomination of
Coolidge for vice-president. It was a
. real pleasure.
f Y'oung men aspiring to the presiden
ty will promptly move into Ohio.
There 'a initial prestige is being lo
cated in a pivotal state like that.
Earle 8. Kinsley's re-election as Re
it publican national committeeman from
' Vermont is probably satisfactory to
the majority of the Republicans of Ver
mont. He bas done acceptably in the
One of the most marked effects in Chi
. cago ys the rapid decline in hotel
costs immediately after the adjourn
ment of the national convention. The
newspaper reports show a depreciation
of something like 500 per cent in the
charges, which the delegates will fail
,to appreciate.
I The word is being passed along that
Wilson does not propose to run again
for the presidency but that it took a
long time for his advisers to overcome
his obstinacy in the matter. If the lat
ter ia the case, it is evident that Wil
son has been getting out of touch with
the country since he was stricken ill,
nine months ago.
That Senator Harding had little ink
ling of what was in the wind at Chica
go late last week is indicated by the
fact that a few minutes before mid
night on Friday night he caused his
name to be filed as a candidate for the
United States Senate from Ohio, the
time expiring that night. Or If he had
any inkling of what was to be at
tempted in his behalf he did nat place
a full measure of reliance on the ef
fort. He was playing it safe at any
It has been more or less a matter of
good fortune, or good luck, that other
vehicles, either horse-drawn or motor
driven, have not been struck by Central
Vermont trains at the Dodge crossing
between Barre and Montpelier. For the
driver of any kind of a vehicle, going
from Montpelier toward Barre.it is al
most impossible to see a train ap
proaching from the direction of Barre
until the crossing is reached. This is
due to the sharp ascent in the road
and an obscuring bank on the right side
of the road. The accident Monday aft
temoon was just the sort that many
people have feared roght happen to
persons not thoroughly familiar with
the danger situation.
Official report to the U. S. war de
partment concerning the inspection of
the work done indicates that Norwich
university is maintaining its military
department in creditable shape, the in
stitution being apain classed among the
20 colleges of the "distinguished" class
for general excellence of militaj-y in
struction. It is one of the greatest
glories that Korwich is able to keep
tip its military department, and no
d ubt President Plumley will endeavor
to maintain all the traditions of the
institutions in that respect. Incidental
ly, the honor which came to Norwich
for this distinction is quite a credit to
the state of Vermont. Vermonters hope
to see the record maintained.
fallen to a native of Vermont. The oth
er two instances were when Chester A.
Arthur and Levi Parsons Morton were
elected. Both those men had left Ver
mont long before they were elevated to
that high position, having cast their
lots in New York state, while Coolidge
remained in Vermont during the years
up to his graduation from Amherst
college. In the case of Chester A. Ar
thur, Vermont had the presidency of
the United States unexpectedly thrust
upon it through the death of James A.
Garfield in 1881, Mr. Arthur taking the
office in the regular order of succession.
Being a small state, Vermont never
has had the distinction of having one
of its residents elected either president
or vice-president.
To be effective, any threatened bolt
from the Republican party will have
to be engineered by some other persons
than Amos Pinehot or Senator LaFol-Jt-tte.
W bettiate to place Mr. Pinehot
In the same category as Senator LaFoI
lette, for we are convinced that he is
not of the same type f American; but
the two were brought together ia the
same newspaper story as possible lead
era of a defection from the Republican
party, so they would naturally be con
sidered in the same connection. Amos
Pinehot has been well-meaning but not
successful because, perhaps, of tacti
cal blunders. Nobody expects IjsFoI
lette to lead much of a bolt because
he already had taken himself pretty
all out of the party.
It was Harry Daugherty, the iim
raipn manager for Harding, who many
weeks before the convention made the
piedictioa that "at the proper time aft
er the Republican national con Tent ion
meets, some 15 men, bleary eyes with
loes of sWp and perspiring profusely
with the excessive heat, will ait down
in seclusion around a big table and
they will select the candidate who will
then be nominated by the delegate in
pen convent ion." There may have been
e-ttne l'?rv.t deviations in the fulfillment
ef the prephery. but the resemb'anr-e
between the prophecy and the atuaii
te ansa remarkable as to aroue n
fer. Mr. DaujNerly hat thereby demon -raied
bis capa-ity aa a prophet and
a ratrpaifcH sunif at ore and the
taane time
With characteristic steadfastness of
purpose, Gov. Calvin Coolidge of Mas
sachusetts resumed his job of ad
ministering the affairs of his present of
fice as if there had been no national
convention in Chicago and as if he
had not been nominated for vice-president
of the United States. He was de
termined to finish his job. That was
much of the reason for Coolidge 'a suc
cess thus far in political and official
life. He means to finish every job wjiich
he sets his hands to do. He is not a
slacker in any sense of the word. He
fixes his goal and he moves forward
toward that goal without swerving and
without being swayed by the lighter
currents of air. If he is eletced to the
position of vice-president he will devote
himself assiduously to the office of vice
president and will not allow any side
issues to interfere with his work. The
people of the country can bank on Cool
idge because he is of the old-fashioned
type of man who believes in giving one
hundred per cent value for every dol
lar if that is humanly possible.
