THE BARRE DAILY TIMES
0L. XXIV NO. 113. BARRE, VERMONT, TUESDAY, JULY 27, -1920. PRICE, TWO CENTS. MUST RESCUE NATION FROM WAR REACTIONS Chief Task That Lies Be fore Us Is to Repossess the People of Their Gov eminent and Their Prop erty Eliminate Extrav agance, of. the. Government. CEREMONY HELD AT NORTHAMPTON Gov. E, P. Morrow of Ken tucky Made Formal An nouncement of Coolidge's Nomination "By the Spontaneous Wish of the : Party" Exercises Held at the Smith College "li' . ! Grounds. Northampton, Mass., July 27. Res cue from the reactions of war was de srribed as the transcendent need of the nut ion in the address which Governor Coolidge delivered here to-day in ac cepting formally the Republican nomi nation for vice-president. "The chief task that, lies before us," he said, "is to repossess the peo ple of their government and their prop erty." Governor Coolidge found another source of gravest public concern to be "the reactionary tendency to substi tute private will for the public will." He said there had been a disposition on the part of tome individuals and of group to inqtre whether they liked the law, and if not, to disregard it Bn4 prevent Ha exeeut ion by the meth od of direct action. "The observance of the law," he said, "is the greatest solvent of public ills." He deplored at tempts to create class distinctions. The scene of the notification was Allen Field, the recreation ground of Smith college, a, natural amphitheatre. A platform, large enough to accommo date only the speakers and a few dis tinguished guests, was erected at one end of the field and, on the grassy slopes before it, the great assemblage itood throughout, the exercises. Governor Coolidge heard from Gover nor Kdwin P. Morrow of Kentucky, the formal announcement of his nomina tion, "by the spontaneous wish of the party." "We called to the east," Gov ernor Morrow said, "north and south heard the call and the nation made answer." Coolidge Critlcited Government Extravagance. Discussing economic relations, Gov ernor Coolidge declared the extravagant standards of government expenditure bred of recent years must be elimi nated, and a revision of taxation he accompanied by a reduction of private extravagance. He urged a different public attitude toward industry, a Inrger comprehension of the inter-de-endenee of capital, management and labor and better facilities for the prompt and reasonable adjustment of industrial disputes. The need of the farmers, he said, is an enlarged power of organization whereby the original producer may profit to a larger degree by the high prices paid for his produce by the ultimate consumer and at the same time decrease the cost of the food. "The proposed league of nations without reservations as submitted by the praident J.o the Senate met with deserved opposition from Republican senators," said Governor Coolidge "Our party by the record of its members in the Senate and by the solemn declara tion of its platform, by performance and by promise, approves the principle of agreement among nations to pre serve peace and pledges itelf In the making of such an averment preserv- . lM.rii4. iAf rMi Am mnA fifth! a will meet every duty America owe to humanity.

" No. one in public life can be obiv ioua to the organized efforts to under mine the faith of our people in their government, foment discord, aggravate industrial strife, stifle product ion, ind ultimately stir up revolution. The first duty of the government is to re press them, punishing wilful viola tions of law burning the full light of publicity on all abuses of the right of assembly and of free speech, and it is the first duty of the public and press to expose false doctrines and answer seditious agruments. American insti tutions can stand discussion and crTTi cism, only if those who know bear for them the testimony of the truth. Such repression and such testimony should be forthcoming that the uninformed may come to a full realization that these seditious efforts are not for their welfare, but for their complete econ omic and political destruction. Back to a Peace Basis. "The greatest need of the nation at the present time is to be rescued from all the reactions of the war. The chief task that lies before us is to repossess the people of their government and their property. We want to return to a thoroughly peace basis because that is the fundamental American basis. Unless the government and property of the nation are in the hands of the people, and there to stay as their permanent abiding place, self-government ends and the hope of America goes down to ruins. "If the great conflict has disturbed our political conditions it has caused an upheaval in our economic relations. The mounting prices oftalt sorts of commodities has put a well-nigh un bearable burden on every home. Much of this is beyond relief from law, but the forces' of the government van and must afford a considerable remedy. "The most obvious place to begin re trenchment is by eliminating the ex travagance of the government itself. That great breeder of public and pri vate extravagance, the excess profits tax, should be revised and recourse had to customs taxes on imports, one of the most wholesome of all mean of raising revenue, for it is voluntary in effect, and taxes consumption rather than production. "A revision of taxation must be ac companied with a reduction of that pri vate extravagant which 'the returns from luxury taxes reveal aa surpass ing all comprehension. Punish Profiteering. "There has been profiteering. It should be punished because it is wrong. But it is idle to look to such action for relief. This class profit by scarcity, but they do not cause it. "As everyone knows, the difficulty is caused by a scarcity of material, an abundance of money and insufficient production. The govarnment must re duce the amount of money as fast Irs it can without curtailing necessary credits. Production must be increased. "One of the chief hindrances to pro duction is lack of adequate railroad facilities. Transportation must be re established. "There must be a different public at titude toward industry, a larger com prehension of the interdependence of capital, management and labor, and better facilities for the prompt and reasonable adjustment of industrial disputes. "The farmers need an enlarged power of organization whereby the original producer may profit to a larger degree in the high prices paid for hia produce by the ultimate consumer and, at the same time, decrease the cost of food. The economic strength of a country rests on the farm. ' "But all these difficulties depend for final solution on the character and moral force of the nation. I'nlcss these forces abound and manifest themselves in work done, there is no real reme dy. "Whenever in the future this nation undertakes to aMss its strength and resources, the largest item will be the roll of those who served here in every patriotic capacity in the Warld war. Care of dependents, relief from distress, restoration from infirmity, provision for eduratinlt. honorable preferment in the public eervice. a helping band everywhere, are theirs, not as a favor but by right. "There ia especially due to the col ored race a more general recognition of their constitutional right.

House, Detroit Detroit, Mich., July 27. A state ment to the police by Mrs. Leo Trum bull that Sirs. Eugene Leroy, victim of Detroit's trunk murder mystery, had confided in her that she was about to become a mother, injected a new theory into the case to-daf. Tolice to-day divided their attention between a hunt for Leroy and for a second trunk believed to contain the vital organs of the body and which is known to have been sent from the Harper avenue apartment house, where the Leroys lived. Police believe that examination of the organs might reveal whether death was due to a criminal operation, as has been hinted since Mrs. Trumbull made hcj statement. Mrs. Trumbull was to go to New York to-day to view the Imdy. The police declared to-day that Mrs. Leroy planned an attempt at suicide before her death. K That Mrs. Leroy was slain in the Harper avenue apartment house was conclusively proven to-day, according to the police, by finding there a blank ets identical with those in which , the body was wrapped before it was placed in the trunk. Another blanket has not been accounted for and the police believe the vital organs of the body were placed, in it and put in the second trunk. A' call has been sent to every express office in the country to check over called-for baggage in an effort to locate the second trunk. CLAIMS IDENTIFICATION. Slain Woman , Believed to Be Mrs. Kathertne Jackson, Aged 19. Birmingham, Ala., July 27. Positive idfcntificr.tion of the woman known as Mrs. Eugene Leroy, whose mutilated body was found jammed in a trunk by express company employes, was claimed to day by the Birmingham News. The pa?r declares that the woman was Mrs. Katherine Jackson, 19 years old, whose maiden name was Katherine Lou Fondren and that her home was at Sturgis, Miss., a small town about 20 miles from Starkville, Miss. The dead woman husbaud was Kid McCoy Jackson, a young farmer, who has never been inside the prize ring, despite his name, the newspaper de clares. Mrs. Jackson, it adds, was the stepdaughter of Alfred Vaughn, a Stur gis farmer, her own father having died when she was seven years old. The married Vaughn several years later and died in 101. the article declares. After the death of her mother the voung wife disappeared, the News I-laims, to be heard from later from Birmingham. Nashville, and other cit ies. So far as is known, she never returned to her husband or obtained a divorce. Several relatives live in Sturgis and Starkville and vicinity.

GERMANS REFUSED TO RUN' POLISH TRAIN Stripped Train of Arms and Munitions After It Was Halted at , Marburg. Coblenz,-July 20 (By the Associated Pressi. A Polish supply train of 13 cars, bearing arms and munitions from France, with five Polish officers and one French officer aboard, which left the American area Saturday evening, was held up by German police and a crowd of civilians at Marburg, 00 milea east of Coblenz, Sunday afternoon. The Germans completely atripped the cars of their war material and the train crews refuted to convoy them further. They were returned to Coblenz to night. The Poles and the French officer, the latter accompanied by his wife, were not molested and reached Coblenz on a passenger train this noon. Altogether, the train consisted of 45 cars with non-military stores for Poland and supplies for Ihe American legation and the American relief com mittee in Warsaw. These cars were in charge, of American soldiers and were not disturbed. The German railway men in the Coblenz district have given notice that . they, will refuse to run Polish trains. ...

PETTIBONE HAD HEADACHES OFTEN And She Told Boston Worn an She Was Accustomed to Taking Strychnine Manchester, July 27. The defense in the trial of Byton Pettibone for the murder of his wife attempted to-day to strengthen its contention that Mrs. Pettibone's death resulted from an overdose of gtrichnine self-administered. The prosecution claims that Pettibone killed his wife by giving her salts that contained strichninc. Interest in the trial reached new heights after the testimony yesterday of Mrs. James Wray of Boston, who told the jury that Mrs. Pettibone told her in November 1018, that she was accustomed to taking strychnine in doses of salts as a remedy for head aches and stomach trouble. Character witnesses also testified for the defend ant. At the opening of the session yes terday afternoon the" state introduced the frequently mentioned "Archibald confession," this consisting of the statements made by the respondent to Attorney General V. C. Archibald on June 10, the day following the "long session' 'and the confession made to At torney Gntves. In the statement made to Mr. Archibald. Pettibone admitted the poisoning much as he had done in the statement to Mr. Graves. But he went much further and said that he had been thinking'about the matter for three or four weeks. He often thought, to quote his words, "If I only could get rid of her." In this Beriea of questions and answers alo Pettibone went into more details aa to his relation with the nurse. Helen Guillow, saying that they had discussed marriage since April 6. that there was no ring or anything like that, but he had told her people that he hoped to marry her at the proper time and that they offered no objection. Mrs. Nora Philbrick, a relatie of Mrs. Pettibone, of Rutland, testified for the defense that she had been called to Bennington that night Mrs. Pettibone died, arriving there early on the morn ing of April 7. She had stayed there for about two weeks. She stated that she was present when Pettibone and various relatives were discussing the matter of an autopsy and that the relative including herself were op posed to it. Several residents of Bennington were called to testify as to the char acter and reputation of the respondent and they were agreed that previous to April 0 his reputation was good. Among those so testifying was the Rev. William G. Towart. pastor of the First Baptist church of Hcnnington. Two or three women who worked near Mrs. Pettibone at the Black Cat mill at Bennington testified that on April 6 she had complained of feeling poorly and said she was doctoring. Danirl A. Ward, who owns and oper ates the drug, store where. it is al leged. Pettibone stole the strychnine, was called by the defense and went over the detail of the plan oT his store, its location with reference to the Wal bridge undertaking rooms next door and the handling and sale of strych nine, including explanation of the fact that each carton containing 10 small bottles bore a distinctive control num ber and that this number was al-o on each lit tie liottle. There was consid erable discussion as to the purchasinc of a bottle by Dr. WiUo on Dec I, which the state has shown was prnh ah'v left at the store with a small ouantitv fmnved from the bottle. On ! cross-examination of Mr. W.ini it would eeem that he testified at the in quest that there had been a siarch ftir that particular bottle at the request of Attorney Graves in June and that-it could 'not lie four.!.

Luiidgren of ViS East street, for many years a -well -known and popular c:ti.cn o? Birre, dropped dcud from hemorrhage last evening near the honso of Dr.; William McFar land. Tt was known that Mr. Lur.d grcn h;td been troubled for over three years with tuberculosis, but it was a Unct surprise to all tliat deth ld seize hira in such an unexpected manner. It was (stated by several that Mr. Lundgren came from liia home last night to attend the secretarial work of one of the lodges, of wjjich he was a member, and feeling ill, started acroES tho city park to Dr. McFarland's for relief. The hemorrhage seized him al most at the moment he set foot on the walk before the doctor's house, and lie died almost instantly. The body was taken at once to Hooker's undertaking establishment, where it lies at the present time. - Mr. Lundgren had not been able to follow his trade as stone cutter for three years. He was an inmate at the Pittsford sanatorium for eight months, and was making goofl progress, but the death-of his wife in the fall of 1918 forced him to leave the sanatorium to attend, the funeral. As that was the year of the influenza epidemic, he was not allowed to return for treatment for fear he might introduce the dis ease among the other inmates, and so he was forced to remain irt, Barre. His health declined steadily from that time. Recently he became so poorly that it was only with difficulty that he could walk any , great distance, ami it is thought that the undue exertion occasioned by his 'walk down town last night was a primary cause of his sud den death. Charles A. Lundgren was born in Norway, Nov. 4, 1 8fi8, but spent most of the time until he was 12 years old in Sweden, where he received his early ed ucation. When he was VI years old he came to America and spent the next Tew vears of his life working in Mil ford," Mass. On April 21, 1897, while be was working in Boston, he married Miss Jennie M. Hilton of Tlainfield and moved there, where they spent a year before coming' to Barre. Mrs. Lund gren, an invalid for the greater part of her married life, died of the influenza Oct. 11. 1018. leaving one son, Wendell. In Barre, Mr. Lundgren worked as a stone cutter for Jones Bros, up to the time his trouble prevented further ac tivity. Mr. Lundgren was one of the board of municipal auditors and had recently been employed by the city in other ca pacities, such as inspecting applications for keeping cows and pigs and as col lector of data concerning burial of persons prior to 1870, as required of the city by the state. Mr. Lundgren belonged to numerous lodges. Masons, Eagles, Foresters, Royal Arcanum, Eastern Star and the Vimitia club. At the time of his death. Mr' Lundgren was a past patron of the Eastern Star, and wa eollector flf the Vincitia club. He leaves to survive him a son, Wendell, who is at present employed by the Jones Bros, company as a draftsman, and a brother, Oscar, who is working in Milford. Mass. The funeral services will be held on Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home," 125 East street, and burial will take place in the tamily lot in Plainfield. The Masonic lodge will hold a special service at the graveside. FORMER BARRE MAN .William P. Mortimer Died at Spring field Sunday. The body of William P.

These three barre U were removed from a carload, consigned to Angelo Scampini of , fricampin! Squsre, who has a government permit! to transport such goods for the manu facture of vinegar. Mr. Scampini discovered , the loss, yesterday morning and immediately notified Chief of Police Sullivan. After , r ; i , j-a . worKing an morning iney rouiiaea up Frank Calevro and son, John, arresting them in the afternoon on warrants issued by State's Attorney E. R. Davis, In city court later the two men pleaded not guilty when charged with the lar. ceny of three barrels of dry wine, whereupon bail was fixed by Judge E. L. Scott at $")0ft each. Augilsto San guinetti furnished bail for both, allow ing them their liberty until further action of the court. Attorneys A. G. Fay and R. A. Hoar were retained by the respondents as counsel. The evidence procured by the state's attorney and the chief of police arsj strong factors in the case, three barrels, exactly the same size, each having eight hoops instead of six or four as with most barrels, and with markings the same as the other barrels in tfu freight car. One barrel, however, had been emptied, it having .been appar ently damaged in transit near the freight car, about which were signs of a leakage. To-day Sheriff Merrill of Roxbury. a railway detective, arrived in the city to make further investigation of the matter, the .railroad -wishing to bring the charge against the culprit or cul prits for bresking the car seals. $48,000 WAS RAISED. Toward Granite City Co.-operativa Creamery in Barre. At a meeting of the Granite City Creamery association. Inc., held recent ly for the purpose of hearing reports of the directors, $48,000 was raised in a very short time among the 100 farmers interested in this co-operative institu tion. Shares at $10 each were distrib uted to the investors, some of whom purchased on the installment plan. A great deal of discussion arosit when farmers, whose herds have not as yet been tested, desired to purchase stock in the company. The by-law of the association read to the effect that herds supplying this proposed creamery with products mu6t all pass the tuberculin test of the state before being accepted. The money appropri ated by the last Vermont legislature to give farmers a limited indemnity for cattle eondetrncd by the test has been exhausted and the state work brought to a halt until further appropriations. In order that these mer with un tested herds might enter the associa tion, the directors and officials voted to pay farmers a similar indemnity as that paid by the state from the as sociation fund and then present such bills at the next legislature for col lection. Each and every owner of a herd which had not been tested ex pressed his desire to have them tested as soon as possible, many of them in vesting after this move by the diree tors, a considerable sum in the t.ew institution.
