The interstate commerce commission did the correct thing in placing coal on the "perishable" hat. None know it better than those who have shoveled coal into the yawning maw of ths furnace. The World war released the war spir it in the Hast and the Near East to such an extent that there are said to be a score or more wars in operation at the present time. There will be no end ot war till the nations will it and art ready to co-operate to the end that peaceful interchange of ideas shall rule. Contrary to reports, the open sugar bowl has not been put under the ban of the federal government. However, that should not prevent anyone from putting the cover on the bowl during fly time. From the standpoint of health, the open sugar bowl should not be Allowed to exist. The government of Turkey refuses to sign a peace which would force her to give up the Smyrna district, Adrian nopie or eastern Thrace, says a report from Constantinople. That is the first intimation that Turkey is making the terms of peace. Heretofore it had been considered that the- allies were making the terms as the victors in the war. The Times agrees with the St. Al bans Messenger in believing that. Ver mont wants the "most American of Americans" for governor, but we can not agree with the contemporary in the choice of James Hartness as that individual, although The Time does believe that Mr. Hartness is an esti mable gentleman. Colonel William Cooper Procter, Who managed Major General Wood's cam paign, has announced his determination to work for the election of Harding for president. That erstwhile manager of the Wood campaign, Senator Moses of New Hampshire, has not (been heard from in the same connection. But per haps he is too busy with his own cam paign to stave off defeat in Xew Hamp shire to pay much attention to the presidential election. any exigencies town. in a Vermont city or STOWE Two years back the world was eager ly desirous of securing the least bit of Information about what was transpir ing inside of Germany and the world was rewarded with prctically nothing Xow the cable messages from Ger many regarding what is taking place inside the former "iron ring" are meet ing with but scant attention either by editors or by the newspaper-reading public Nobody cares much about Ger many except to see that Germany does not tread on the toes of the world again. , Wliile Attorney ueneral I'almer is out at San Francisco running his per' aonally conducted boom for the presi dency, he is losing some of the radical prisoners he caused to be incarcerated last winter and who have been kept in confinement ever since that time. That is not to say that some of the prisoners ought not to be released, for some of them would have been released, per haps, if the attorney general had look ed into the merits of each case instead oi keeping them in durance all this time. WAITSFIELD EX. GOV. GROUT ON C. S. EMERY While there is no disposition in Ver mont at the present time to accept "hand-picked" candidates for governor, there is an inclination to size up candi dates through the representatives made by those who are in most intimate as sociation with the candidates. This in clination is due to the fact that it is not possible for each individual voter to know all the candidates. So the vot ers will be interested in what a former governor of the state, Joeiah Grout, has to say about one of those candidates, Curtis S. Emery of Newport. Ex-Gov. Grout writes in the Burlington Free Press about the political situation 'and in summing up the qualifications need ed for an executive to-day he finds that Mr. Emery measures up well to those qualifications. What ex -Gov. Grout has to say is given as follows "In 1888 I was speaker of the House at Montpelier; and Colonel Emery was the member from Chelsea. Tt was his first appearance In state work; and be ing the youngest member he attracted attention "I then took his measure for work of public character; and from that measure ana others l have since nun opportunities to take, I unhesitatingly say he is one of the best equipped men gov Henry M. Sweet and Mary E. Magoon Married Wednesday Evening. Henry Morton Sweet and Miss Mar" Edith Magoon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bradley F. Mngoon, were married at the home of Air. and Mrs. Magoon at 8:30 o'clock Wednesday evening, June 23, with about 40 of their friends present. The ceremony was performed by Rev. M. E. Bacon, assisted by the groom's father, Rev. If. A. Sweet, using the double ring service. The couple stood under an arch of. ferns, with a white wedding bell. They were attend ed by Hollis anil Miss Verna Stock man and the bride's niece, little Doro thy Magoon, was ring bearer. The bride's gown was of pink satin and georgette crepe, embroidered with sil ver, and she carried white roses. The bridesmaid wore grey taiTeta trimmed t,ge examinations. niiu Bti.tri, uiiu HUB IH111CU J'CIHIW roses. The ring bearer wore white shadow lace, trimmed with pink rib bon. A delightful lunch was served. .There were many gifts, including ar ticles of cut glass, silver, linen and chinai Among those present were Rev. and Mrs. H. A. Sweet of Leominster, Mass., Mrs. Henry Gornall of Taunton, Mass., Miss Alice Magoon, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Jarvis and Mrs. Addie Jar vis of Morristown. Anions those from Stowe were the bride's brothers and families, Mr. and Mrs. Quincy Magoon, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Magoon, Mr. and Mrs. Alva Magoon, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Magoon. The bride has always lived in Stowe and has attended Mowe high school. The groom comes from Leom inster, Mass., where ho has served in the Massachusetts state guard. Mr. and Mrs. Sweet will accompany Mr. Sweet's parents home Friday, and aft er a week's vinit will return to Stowe, where they will make their home with Mrs. Sweets parents and carry on the home farm.

Not little interest attaches to the cens figures of Springfield which are being awaited eajrerlv by those desirinz to see the growth of the town measured. There is a chance for Springfield to go into fourth place in the state in popu lation, even to give Barre a hard rub for third place honors. Up to the present time no attempt has been made to nang the made in Germany"' sign on the present civil warfare in Londonderry, in the north ern part of Ireland. In war daya it would have been perhaps the first move of inquiry to determine the strings leading from Londonderry to some base oi German intrigue, and Germany might have been accused even though the connection was exceedingly tenu mis. Under the present condition of the British mental attitude, it seems to be recognized that the trouble in London derry is from an origin independent of t.erman influence. The decision on the Senator Reed contest in the Democratic convention will determine in large measure wheth er the reinvention is to be a "bossed" affair, or whether the DemoTat the rtnk'and file are to have their fay in the matter.

"He was born in Vermont, reared in Vermont, has rendered valuable service to Vermont, knows all abont Vermont, as a splendid platform and should be the next governor of Vermont. He is neither rich nor poor, just a plain man, "middle course" worker; ho is such a man as Vermont needs for its next gov ernor. In every respect he is com pletely suited to occupy the great of fice; and will Tender a most faithful service, so much needed at this partic ular time. Make way then, for the Hon. C. S. Emery, and" behold him one of our best governors. Plain though he is. he will far more surely help admin ister the most needed needs of the com mon people than any of all the can- idates." The analysis thus presented by one of Vermont's honored ex-governors coincides quite closely with other esti mates of Mr. Emery and should have influence in causing voters to turn to a man of such substantial qualifications. J CURRENT COMMENT j The European Opinion of Hartness. "James Hartncs is held up to Ku rope as one of America's hst and greatest Americans. It is inconceiv able to The Measenjfer that the people of Vermont will neglect to avail them selves of the service of this man as their governor for the next two years. Surely the best i none too good for Vermonters. St. Albans Mesienper. "Granting that Europe considers Jajnes Hartnees 'one of America's best and greatest Americans,' hs the con temporary asserts, it is nevertheless true that Europe is not acquainted with all the fine men Vermont produces nor is Europe in a position to know the peculiar needs of Vermont as re gards its chief executive. Therefore, Europe could not reasonably be expect ed to pick out the man beat suited to become governor of Vermont at this time. Vermonters themselves re in a better position to select the man they ought to have for goernor. There are some who may be more adaptable for the position than Mr. Hartness, excel lent gentleman that he is." Barre Times. It is evident that The Timee is get ting too much alarmed about the part Europe may play in selecting Ver mont's next governor. The Messenger ia just as firm a believer in home rule as The Tiroes, perhaps more so since the contemporary ha bad a decided leaning toward the Woodrow Wilson brand of internationalism. The Mes senger was simply supResting in jn in direct wav, perhaps, that Vermonters would desire to have a their rhief executive a man who had been held tip to Europe by a noted American writ er aa one ot otir nest ana, i tuinn i ran aay, one of our greatest Ameri cana."
