As Result of Railroad Yardmen's Strike
in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, June 22. Little change
was noted in the railroad yardmen's
strike here early to-day. Both sides

as to the number of men out and the
effect the strike has had on the move
ment of freight.
Strike leaders declare nearly four
thousand men on the three railroads,
the Pennsylvania, Reading and the Bal
timore and flhio, are idle and that
freight traffic, especially in the Pennsyl
vania and Reading yards is virtually
at a standstill. Kmbargoes on all ex
cept perishable freight and coal for
public utilities are in efTect on ail three
roads and the Reading admits that its
freight in and around Philadelphia has
been seriously affected. The Pennsyl

ating nearly 100 per rent normal.

employes were out. but that there was

teer crews; officials of the Reading
claimed that only 400 men had quit
work on its lines,' while the Baltimore
and Ohio reported "a negligible num
ber" out.

men.

MUCH LIQUOR SMUGGLING
And Rumor Has It That an Essex
County Judge Is Indicted.
Canaan, June 22. That a side judge
of Essex county court, had been indict
ed by the federal grand jury charged
with smuggling booze into this country
from Canada, was rumored yesterday.
I'p to to-day no arrest had been made,
but the nimor of the indictment has
caused a widespread sensation.
It is known that customs agents
from Canaan and Boecher Falls de
scended upon the farmhouse of Assist
ant Judge A. P. Richardson
near this village in March, and
made a search. They found 75 quarts
of Canadian bonze secreted there. When
a customs man was asked yesterday
how the officials g""t the tip that booze
had been smuggled across the line, he
replied that- that was one of their
secrets.
Mr. Richardson was not arrested nor
taken before a United States commis
sioner at that time because, it was ex
plained, it was known he would lie on
hand in case he was ever wanted.
Only in lases where the officers feel
that the man will disapear is the man
taken before Commissioner Clary at
Newport and bound over. There has
been much smuggling across the bor
der the past few months and some of
the men caught with the goods have
lieen from New Hampshire, notably
from Berlin, not far from the dividing
line.
Mr. Richardson, who is said to have
brought in the liquor by automobile,
is a well-to-do farmer, living on a
good farm. He is married.
Another farmer, living on Canaan
hill, near this village, was recently
taken before Commissioner Clary at
Newport after his place was searched.
The customs men, who are said to
have got their tip in this case that
liquor was to be had there from a
rumor afloat, found between 40 and 50
lwittlcs of the forbidden stuff. Prohibi
tion officers from New Hampshire were
the instruments of discovery in the
Chase case.

Wilmington, Del., June 22. Isaiah
Fountain, a negro, convicted of crimi
nal assault upon a 13-year-old white
girl in Trappe, Md., was surrounded
early to-day in a woods near Hebron,
Md., by an armed posse of approxi
mately 600 persons. Open threats were
made against his life and officials fear
they will not be able to hold the posse
in check should he be captured.
Fountain twice escaped from the
Easton, Md., jail. He was convicted
on April 19 and sentenced to be ex
ecuted. A few weeks later he escaped,
but was quickly captured at Seaford,
Del. He got away again last Wednes

hours.
When the posse entered this state

of Harvard university awakened early
to the duties and delights of class day
by the blaring of a brasa band, which

"BEER PLANK"
TALK IS HEARD
But League of Nations Is
Little Heard at San
Francisco
FEW DEMOCRATIC .
LEADERS ARRIVED
Boomers for Various Can
didates Begin Pre
liminaries San Francisco, June 22. While hotel
lobbies began to-day to take on the
appearance of a national political con
vention, only a few of the Democratic
chieftains who will figure prominently
in the party's quadrennial gathering
next week have reached the convention
city.
Direct developments of the day were
connncd to physical preparation of the
municipal auditorium for the conven
tion and the work was well advanced,
but much discussion was in progress
as to elements that would be involved
in shaping the party platform, and
there was strikingly little talk about
candidates. '
Out of the talk of the day came an
increasing rumble of "wet" and "dry"
manu-uvet, and it was clearly indicated
that leaders now here look forward to
a fight on the floor of the convention
over efforts to make the Democratic
platform advocate modifications of the
prohibition enforcement law through a
'beer plank."
The league of nations issue did not
fill a prominent place in talk among
the leaders to-day, but possibility of a
struggle over Japanese exclusion was
suggested after (Jovernor Stephens' let
ter to Secretary Colby, declaring the
situation in California, had been read,
coupled as it was with the statement
of Senator Phelan of this state that
the Icmoi'rats should deal with the
oriental problem in framing the plat
form. Hut comment on this aspect of
the situation did not indicate that i
was occupying an important place in
the minds of leaders now on the
ground.
Posters urging the claims of Attor
ney -General Palmer began to appea
after headquarters for his boom had
been established, and workers in be
half of Governor Cox of Ohio and othc
aspirants are beginning to arrive.
WILL PRESENT K'ADOO'S NAME.
With or Without the Consent of Mc
Adoo Himself.
Kansas City, Mo., June 22. Burris
Jenkins, clergyman and newspaper
publisher, issued a positive statement
to-day that the name of William (Jiblia
McAdoo would be placed in nomination
before the Democratic convention n
San Francisco with or without the con
sent of Mr. McAdoo.
Dr. .lenkms said he had been in
formed bv Thomas B. Love, Democratic
national committeeman from Texas
who yesterday traveled across Kansas
with the Alabama delegation, that 18 of
the 24 members of the delegation in
sisted that the name of the former sec
retary of the treasury should lie laid
before the convention.
DENIES WILSON LEADERSHIP.
W. F. McComb Says He Has No Right
to the Title of Leader.
Chicago. June 22. William F. Mc-
Comhs. chairman of the Democratic
national committee from 1912 to lPltl
and manager ot President v ilson s
1012 campaign, issued a statement
here lat night before leaving for San
Francisco attacking what he charac
terized as the presidents autocratic
assumption of authority.
President. Wilson, he said, has no
more right to call himself leader of
the IVmocratie party, "a conception
heretofore neven entertained by any
American," than has Chief Justice
White, former Speaker Champ (lark
or ice-President ihomas It. Marshall
Mr. Mi-Comb announced that ar
rangements hail been made to obtain
for him a seat in the .New i ork dele
gation if he decides to take the floor
at San Francisco. The New York dele
gation, he predicted, will throw its
support to Governor James M. lox of
Ohio after casting a complimentary
vote for Governor Smith. He added
that be believed a westerner, possibly
from the Pacific roast, will be nomi
nated for vice-president.
His statement in part follows:
They tell me that America has
pledged its word to Kurope and that
this word must be redeemed in the pro
cess of a national campaign. In my
belief America has pledged itself to
nothing. One individual, spsak nr as
such, permitted Europe to hcllevv that
be spoke for a nation, for "n the Lit
analysis he was nothing more than a
self-appointed emissary. Nverthch-s.
America is asked to validate this s:g

BARRE BASEBALL TEAM
' TO BE REAL TEAM
At Meeting Last Night Plans Were
Laid for a .Season of Good
Sport in the National
Game.
A permanent organization, calculated
to restore 1-arre to its old-time posi
lion i:i the field of sports, was effect
cd at. nr. enthusiastic meeting of Barro
business men last evening when plans
were forvnrucd for the formation of
the Uhivc Athletic association.
Among those who came together
were some of the old timers, citizens
of Barm w!use presence called up
memories oi former days when Bane
showed her heels to all rivals, whether
on th'. gnuiion or on the dmmon I.
And ii' the enthusiasm so rampant
last night can be capitalized, those
old davs a;e going to be revived. It
s the immediate purpose of the newiv
ngauizeil uasociation to place a strong
baseball team in the held, to that
end a quick, hm thoroughgoing, drive
for memberships is to be made within
a lew days. Already there is tne tie
ginning of a fine baseball team to en
tourage support. To-day a specially
appointed committee was negotiating
for new equipment. Summer baseball
for Barre is thus assured.
' So unmistakable has been the de
mand for baseball this season that lit
tle difficulty ittiould be encountered in
obtaining the necessary financial sup
port. At, the meeting last night it
was voted that any person subscribing
$." or more may become a member of
the association. In order to give ev
eryone a chance to enroll, the city will
be" divided into districts, a day will lie
set apart for the canvass, and a large
number of teams will lie in action. The
following committee will have, charge
of the drive, more definite plans
for which will lie announced later: W.
G. Reynolds, Alex. A. Milne, K. M.
Tobin." H. P. Hinman, Joseph Merlo
and George Kent.
Meanwhile a committee consisting of
City t'lerk James Markay, William
Wishart. C. A. Brown, A. M. Cclla and
W. W. Russell is formulating plans
for a permanent organization, to which
each subscriber on the basis outlined
above will be entitled to membership.
A temporary treasurer in the person of
C. H. Wishart was elected, with Athol
R. Bell acting as temporary secretary.
A committee on supplies, made up -of
A. A. Milne, A. M. Cella, A. I Averill
and Paul Scampini. is looking after the
equipment of the baseball team.
Not in recent vears have there bee
so manv strong baseball teams in Ver
mont as this year. In a number of
much smaller towns than Barre college
and hich school talent have eombinei
to form fast outfits. It was the know I
edce that annereiitlv Barre. in the
midst of so mucii baseball activity else
where in the state, rould only exlubi
diamonds crown with grass and out
fields carpeted with the Canada this
tie that caused the outpouring of en
thiisiasm so manifest last night.
F.vervbody will have a chance to pu
Barre back on the baseball map this
season. With the granite industry
coing full blast and every other indi
cation of activity, there, is no reason
whv the great American pastime can
not flourish. A live athletic organi
rntion. supporting a baseball team that
is right up in the tront ranks, is i

NEW U.S. DRIVE
ON RADICALS
Department of Justice Of
ficials to Spread a
Finer Net
"PARLOR BOLSHEVIK"
TO BE INCLUDE!
Aliens Who Publish Stuff
Against Govt. Subject
' to Deportation '
Washington, D. C, June ,22. Armed
with broadened powers provided in the
recently enacted alien exclusion act,
department of justice officials to-day
announced a new drive against radi
calism. '
Orders have been officials
said, for a strict W d the activ
ities of those wK ..jX;ch radical doc
trines or assir' .'Spreading such the-
ories whij
' K themselves ' refrain
from act
vcV.archistic activities.
The ""nsjifetical red-' and the "par
lor bolshevik" are to be especial ob
jects of the campaign, it was said.
Provisions of the new act have great
ly widened the scope of the depart
ment's power to rid the country of
aliens who stir up discontent with
guarded revolutionary doctrines. v
Advocacy either of sabotage or on-
position to all organized government
by aliens or their organizations is suf
ficient to bring them within the new
law. according to the department's of
ficial , authorities. Sabotage in this
connection is construed by the depart
ment to mean "opposition to the ad
ministration of the government" and
aliens who publish writings advising
against organized government even
though the United States is excepted
are liable to deportation, it was
said.
The financial resources of radical as
sociations are being carefully scruti
nized, 'officials declared, and it was
thought that the income of many will
be cut off bv the new law, which pro
hibits the giving or loaning of money
to anarchistic organizations. 'Purchase
of "red" bonds will come within this
category, it was believed.
