BARK E DAILY TIMES BARRE, VERMONT, WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1920. PRICE, TWO CENTS. SHAMROCK'S SECOND WIN PUTS ENTHUSIASTS ON EDGE FOR 3RD RACE Lack of a Breeze Caused " Postponement at 15-Min-ute Intervals of the Con . test Between Shamrock " and Resolute Cup Sloops Idled About Start ; ing Point. RESOLUTE MUST TAKE THREE STRAIGHT In Steady Winds of Yester day Shamrock Caught All the Favoring Breezes and Won on - Luck According to a Statement by Resolute's Crew. Sandy Hook, NT. J.. July 21. With two victories to her credit, Shamrock IV led across the starting line in to day's rare for the America's cup, de fended by Resolute. The Lipton sloop needs but one more. victory to lift the cup. After sounding of the starting signal at 1 o'clock. Shamrock croaked at 1:00:22 nd Resolute at 1:00:41, offi cial time, and breezed away on the first 15-mile leg of their :i0-inile wind ward and leeward course. At 1:25 Shamrock had lead of an eighth of a mile and appeared to "be gaining rapidly in the four-knot breete. Resolute, although to windward, ap peared logy. At 1:30 both boats were still holding the port tack for the Jer sey shore, with Resolute a quarter of a mile to windward of Shamrock's wake. , Phamrock had increased her lead to three-eighths of a mile. , A victory to-day for the Shamrock .and the emblem of yachting supremacy of the.aea goes back to Great Brit ain. Resolute must rapture three etraight races in order that the nip may still remain in the trophy room of the New York Yacht club, where it has reposed continuously for well over 60 yeara. Resolute's sailors declare that Sir Thomas lias had all the luck. They eay that in the first race Shamrock was beaten when an accident to Reso lute forced her to withdraw, giving the race to the challenger; that Sham rock was badly beaten in the second race but Resolute could not win be cause the wind failed and she cold ivat finish before the time limit and that in the streaky winds Shamrock caught all the favoring breezing and won on lurk. The rlsherfolk hereabouts insist that Shamrock could never have -beaten the American boat without Captain An drew Applegate, the Seabright, N. J., fisherman, who sailed on the Lipton (.loop yesterday and gave Skipper Bur ton his knowledge of wind and tide conditions. "An American had a big hand in turning the trick for the British boat, anyway," say the fishermen, who can't tell whether they should make Captain Applegate a hern or otherwise. Captain Applegate has a Jersey shore reputation of knowing more of the trick of tide and weather than any pound fisherman in this part.. Thrre is no rule in international cup racing preventing an American from sailing on board a foreign craft. Colonel Pum-an Neill, Sir Thomas' representative on the Shamrock, saiil to day that yesterday's contest was al 1 most a duplicate of that of Saturday. "We pot the wind yesterday and were luck v." said Xcill, "while R"i- lute held the wind on Saturday, but unfortunately for her, us unable to finish before the time limit." THRILLS YESTERDAY.

Senator Harding's speech of acceptance, to be delivered here to-morrow, is expected by his close associates to give promi nence to the foreign policy of President Wilson and the league, of nations in such a way as to advance the campaign toward a squarely-joined issue be tween the two political parties. Those who know the mind of the presidential nominee declared their confidence to-day that he would maJcc a declaration squaring with the party platform and the party record, and bridging successfully the Republican difference of opinion which threatened a split at Chicago. The exact form of the declaration was not revealed, but it was said au thoritativelythat it would follow the trend of the senator's recent state ments on the subject and would be particularly militant in its opposition to the Wilson policies, to which the Re publican nominee regards the Demo cratic party and candidates as pledged unreservedly. In addition to declaring unthinkable the acceptance of the league as the president fashioned it, however, the senator is expected to express in direct terms his belief that America should not remain isolated, and to take the position that the war's sacrifices will not prove in vain unless there is estab lished a new order, with added security to peace and civilization. It is a subject for speculation how far he will detail this position, or to what extent he will clothe with prac tical suggestions the declaration of the Chicago platform for an international peace tribunal. It ia regarded as unlikely that the nominee will enter into a detailed dis cussion of the league covenant or will speak objectively of reservations or interpretations. He is expected, rather. to hold his utterance', to the broad principles involved, hinging his argu ment to a plea for American rath"r than world ideals, and is believed cer tain couple with this a declaration that the failure of the United StatesJ to accept Mr. Wilson's league will not be construed abroad as an evasion of duty, but will be interpreted aa arising from devotion to the integrity of the nation. In preparation for the notification cerenioniea to-morrow, of which his ac-ceptam-e speech will he a part. Senator Harding arranged to spend mot of fo-dav in rest and recreation.

The prohibi tion party opened its 13th annual con vention here to-day prepared to give over much of thelhree days of dy and night session to jubilation over the downfall of John Barleycorn. Indica tions, were that such matters as nomi nees and platform planks will give way for at least two days to the jubi lee. The opening session, however, found the delegates apparently facing the pe culiar situation of being almost unani mously in favor of William Jennings Bryan an their presidential nominee and yet being divided as to whether the convention should name the Ne brakan as its leader in the fall elec tion. The Bryan boom, which has had in numerable ups and downs in the paet 4H hours as varied information was re ceived concerning Mr. Bryan's attitude on the nomination, to-day had become the foremost question before the dele gates' and one which many say may re sult in a floor fight. Mr. Bryan's friends here, who claim to lie speaking for him, firmly reiterat ed previous statements that be will nut accept the nomination, will not run on any ticket and feels that the party should not name any candidates, con fining its activities instead tn local cam pa igns. (roups of delegate! yesterday planned to try to have Bryan nomi nated unanimously regardless of his own views. A series of night confer ences by other delegates resulted and to-day there is a definite movement to prevent Mr. Bryau'a nomination on the ground that he should not be placed in an embarrasing position, although the delegates working against his nomina tion declare tliey personally favor it if he will accept. " Nominations are not scheduled until Friday. The convention was called to order by Virgil Henshnw, national commit tee chairman, and the u-ual prayers and singing followed. Aaron S. Wat kins of Gertnantown, O., was made temporary chairman and delivered the keynote address. Committees on cre dentials, organization, rules and resolu tions were appointed and at the after noon session it was planned to bear their reports.

Rap idly in the Petti , bone Trial TRYING TO PROVE PREVIOUS ATTEMPT Made by Bennington Man to Make Way With His Wife Manchester, July 21. The prosecu tion in the trial of Byron M. Pettibone, charged with the murder of hia wife t Bennington on April fl last,' proceeded to-day in its effort to establish that Pettibone, who was an undertaker's as sistant, poisoned Mrs. Pettibone be cause of his alleged infatuation for Miss Helen I. Guillow, a nurse. The trial moved rapidly after the jury was chosen and the state Is expected to complete its case sometime to-morrow. The prosecution introduced evidence by which it hopes to show that the de fendant attempted to poison his wife a few days before she died. The jury was .eompleteit yesterday afternoon and is composed of the fol lowing men: Ernest Beebe, a farmer, of Rupert; W. J. Young, employed in a factory at North Bennington; William O. Will cox, a farmer, of Sandgate; Frank Sheldon, another Rupert farmer; Frank Boynton, a teamster, from Woodford; C. J. Edgerton," a factory employe of Manchester; L. P. Torrey, a painter, of Dorset; lieorge E. Living ston, a Dorset farmer; L. H. Abbott, a farm laborer from I-andgrnve; John Flynn, a laborer, from Dorset; Clyde Bryant, farmer, and John Ilaedel of Stamford, who works in a mill in North Adams, Mass. The state exercised but two of its preemptory challenges while the de fense challenged four times duriug the process of selecting the jury. Eugene Rice and Dr. E. M. Gardinicr were on the stand yesterday after noon and the former, who had a room at the Tctiibone house, told of being at th house on the Sunday evening previous to the tragedy with Mr. and Mr. Pettibone and Bessie Wright. He said that on thia evening Byron Petti bone prepared something to cat, inrltnl-ing- tea. Mr. -Pettibone started io drink her teaV"and said "that' it . was bitter. She did not drink it, but took another cup. Rice stated that Mrs. Pet tibone spoke words to the effect that somebody was trying to poison her. Ijater, on cross examination, Rice eaid that the first time he mentioned thia incident was a few weeks ago to a sister of Mrs. Pettibone, and that he later gave this information to the at torney general and the county attor ney. Dr. Gardinicr described the condi tion of the woman preceding1 her death as a succession of convulsons with in tervals of relaxation and clear mind. There was a little stir in the crowded court room when Dr. Gardinicr testi fied that when he and Dr. Hurley, who arrived after death occurred, were going out to their automobiles Byron Tctti bone accompanied them and said if there was any suggestion of poisoning to say nothing as rumors started so easily in a small place, or words to that effect. During the examination of Rice the story of the salt was rehearsed. It seems that on this evening Pettibone came into the house about 8:.'HI. A neighbor, Mrs. West off. was there, but went before 0:30 when Pettibone said he fcK loj;y and was going to take a dse of salts. Mrs. Pettibone said she would take a dose also and that Petti bone then prepared the salts ami he, P.ice, drank hi glass. Mrs. Pettibone saying that she would wait until she was ready to go to bed. When Kice left the kitchen the two plus-es had not been drunk and were on the waim- ., if. .... .1. mg oven 01 the range, nc csine with two oranges from his room and then went upstairs and stayed until he was called by Pettibone after 1" o'clock. Rice also testified to the cf feet that as far as he bar evej- seen Byron Pettibone always treated his w ife properly. JUMPED FOR THEIR LIVES As Runaway Cars Loaded With Gran ite Bore Down on Engine. T. H. Smith, engineer of the Granite City engine of the Barre and Chelsea R, R. and P. H. Leckner, fireman, nar rowly escaped instant death yesterday afternoon when five freight cars, loaded with tons of granite, came tear ing wildly past a side switch and down a steep incline towards the engine at the Summit near the Wetmore & Morse quarries in Websterville. Both men jumped and were at a nfe dis tance ; when the collision came that folded the engine fender onto the boiler as if the exceedingly thick fender iron was but tin. ' The crash not only jammed the fender to the boiler but broke off the steam valves, releasing all the, steam and water in a very ghort time. A number of freight cars with brakes set were ahead of the engine and, together with the engine brakes, prevented a runaway engine. The car sustaining the greatest shock crumbled with the crash and was partly de railed, together with the second car, though the other three stayed on the irons. When the freight car struck the engine the force shifted all the granite blocks ahead on the cars, the stones on th first car doing the damage to the engine. On this first car alone was a 40-ton load, one stone being of large dimensions, a large ridge stone .that for several months has been withheld from a western firm because of rail way embargo. Now its shipment will be delayed from immediate shipment by this accident. Railroad men to-day believed the ac cident was the result of an oversight by a brakeman, who released the air brakes on the five cars to allow them to coast down the incline, without first having shifted the switch forhe sid ing. The grade Upon which they started was roughly estimated by an old engineer to-day as being nearly a 5'.j per cent incline. 1 To-day the derrick cars from Mont- pelier with a gang of workmen under Superintendent James Gall were being used in unloading the derailed cars, the engine No. 4 having been towed into the repair shops last night by an other engine. This vvil! delay for a day at least the granite shipments from the quarry district to Barre. TOOK LOOK AT BABE Several Honrs After She Had Aban doned Child to Its Fate. St. AHians. July 21.

Barre City Council Turned Down a R finest Last Ni RECENT EX' .ilENCE NOT SA7 9 ACTOR Y 7.wf-'- to 'fief Grant A mit Stood Roll Call Motion to Two to Five The prospects are that no more car nival shows will be. licensed by the Barre city council to operate in the city this summer, as. an application from the Barre Amusement Co. to pre sent a traveling exhibition company was rejected by the council last night by a vote of five to two, after con siderable discussion. Recent experience with a carniml company was the strong aetualii.,; cause in the decision not to grant a license to the present applicants, all of the council expressing themselves as wholly opposed to one of the ex hibitiona put on by performer on the grounds occupied by the carnival com pany and only two of them being will ing to take a chance on another com pany although the recommendation might be most excellent. " More than one of the council said that a Satur day night exhibition by women was 4 1 : 1 . 1 . . 1 ...i : . f mil Olllv iiuicctfiiv out puuipibiic ui morals, judging by the reports which they Imd received of the performance. The company, on whose field the al leged indecent and immoral perform ance was given, had come with good recommendations, and aldermen ex pressed the opinion that there were some really good features of the aft ernoon performances; but the evening cloaked at least one show which was considered far below par. It was said in defense of the carnival companies that some of the side shows were not under the management of the compa nies although they might pay the com panies for concessions. Another element that guided the council in their refusal of a license was the likelihood of attempts being made to conduct gambling games. The mo tion was made that the present appli cants be granted a license providing they should bar indecent and immoral shows and all gambling games. On the viva voce vote the "nos" seemed to be in the majority; but a roll call was asked, the result being that only two votes were in favor of granting the license to the Barre Amusement Co., while five were against the proposi tion. So it does not seem probable that any other shows of like nature will get the sanction of the city.
