Judging by the unusually large num
ber of touring cars from other states
in Barre and passing through Barre,
Vermont is being discovered by a great
many people throughout the country.
The cars come from points at the ex
treme ends of the country.
Lately a candidate for the presiden
tial nomination, Nicholas Murray But
ler of Columbia university is now seek
ing the nomination for governor of
Xew York. The suspicion grows strong
er that President Butler has simply got
th itch for office, no matter what the
office may be.
"Tha cause of the accident is not
know$, but it is thought that some
thing' went wrong with the steering
gear of the car." A good many thing
ara charged up to faulty steering gear,
and oftentimes the charge is rightly
brought. The steering gear is. some
thing that needs overhauling most fre
quently and rarely gets it.
Gov. Coolidge paid an honest tribute
to his running-mate, Warren G. Hard
ing, during his speech accepting the Re
publican nomination for vice-president.
The tribute was neither fulsome flat
tery nor uncalled for frills; it was
meTely a plain, cold statement of an
appraisal of the man. Those who are
looking for an honest sizing up of the
Republican nominee for president can
find it in Coolidge's words.
The political steam-roller is a won
derfully mobile machine considering ita
supposed crushing power. Now 'it is a
St. Johnsburyman, Dr. J. D. Bachand,
who claims to be a candidate for state
senator after giving the Republican
party "the best there is in me" for
eight years. Dr. Bachand should not
be discouraged; there are others who
have worked a lifetime for the Republi
can, party ami never have been reward
ed with office yet.
The "trunk murder" uncovered in
New York City has developed an un
usually large number of missing young
women in every part of the country,
the disappearance of whom had prob
ably been kept a secret until the dis
covery of the woman's body in a trunk
aroused the anxiety of many parents
and caused them to go to the police and
to the newspaper for information. If
the anxiety tlms aroused results in the
restoration of' some of these young
women to theirl homes there will be one
good side to am otherwise evil thing.
(Frank C. Arrhibnld of Manchester
ha announced that he will be a candi

the political fence, of course. Attor
ney General Archibald has done good
service in the two years h has served
in that rapacity and is, under the usual
order, entitled to one other term with
out ferious hindrance. In one line of
activity he has been unusually busy,
having been the chief prosecuting offi
cer in she homicide rases besides hav
ing much other criminal pronecutioa

department, for there surely must be
some good men available.
The interpretation of the law regard
ing the manufacture and use of cider
and fruit juices, as presented by Col
lector of Internal Revenue J. E. Ken
nedy of Burlington, is somewhat more
liberal than some people have been led
to believe recently from political ut
terances. However, it is evident that
the dealers in sweet cider will have to
"turn over their stock" in rather quick
succession in order to coma inside the
one -half of one per cent limit of al
cohol content.
Through the request for an armistice
in behalf -of harrassed Poland, the al
lies (or some of them) have moat cer
tainly given recognition to the soviet
government in Russia. They may not
have recognized the government itself
but they have given recognition to the
fact that a government exists, which
amounts to the same thing. Hereafter
the soviet government of Russia is
likely to gain in prestige until it be
comes an established government of
the world, for the other countries are
quite likely to follow the example set
by some of the leading governments of
the allied circle. Latterly there have
been some indications that the soviet
control was getting established with
considerable strength in the absence
of any marked power in opposition and
that there was a disposition toward
greater moderation than in the days
immediately following the overthrow
of the Kerensky government. It must
have made marked progress, eUe it
would not hava been able to maintain
such a powerful offensive as that
Poland which was brought to a halt
through a plea for an armistice.
Path to Reform.
Dr. Talcott William, one of Ameri
ca's prominent publicists, in an address
before the summer sehool for teachers
at the University of Vermont, took
"Path to Reform" a a subject. The
press gives a resume of his address
which' show h believe the proper
path to reform i through the educa
tion of the youth. He related an inci
dent that i of interest.
Thirty-eight year ago while he was
editor of the Philadelphia Press three
women asked him to support a move
ment to have the bad effects of alcohol
and tobacco incorporated in the study
of physiology in tha public schools.
The proposition was opposed by the
expert of the time with the age-old
arguments againt all reform. The
plan was finally adopted and in twelve
or fifteen year the boya who had been
instructed in the lines become the
oter of the country that begun a
regulation of the liquor traffic. This
great body of educated Americana con
tinued to place restrictions on the traf
fie and in about thirty-seen years
after the matter was fir.t agitated the
country ha a national prohibitory law.
Thia brief story may be discourag
ing to ardent adorate of reform b
catie it shows how slowly great re
forms are brought about. But it hows

the power of the school in reform will
be doubled. That may make reform
more speedy than it has been but the
greater reforms cannot be accomplished
in too-short periods. The greater pos

make it more important than ever that
its instruction shall be in the line of
better citizenship. Brattleboro Re

Clement's Opinion.
Governor Clement is justified, if he
has reason honestly and sincerely to
believe that his position is correct on
constitutional grounds, in not calling
a special session to consider auffrage.
It would lend a great deal of strength
to his contention, however, If he were
to cite an opinion from the attorney
general of the state, the legal expert
to whom officials have the right to sub
mit such questions, or from other
recognized authorities, in support there
of. In the absence of such supporting
opinion, there will remain a popular
belief that the grounds taken are un
warranted, even specious. For an exec
utive not himself a lawyer or with
legal training, to sit in judgment on a
fine question like this, where his action
has such far-reaching results, and to
announce a decision without quoting a
single authority is assuming a great
deal, it seems to us.Randolph Her

Part of Wilson Farm in Barre Town
Has Been Selected.
A permanent landing field for air
craft will be established for Barre be
fore Augvit 30, the aviation committee
of the Barre board of trade has Hecid
ed, and this field will be at the Wilson
farm on the Websterville road, a dis
tance of two and a third mile from
Barre's postoffice by automobile. From
the center of Graniteville the distance
by road is about a mile and from Web
sterville probably slightly less than a
The field, except for its distance
from Barre, is apparently ideal
for such a purpose and offers a large
tract of level, grassed land, which, ac
cording to the drawings of George S.
DeMerell, is approximately 2,500 feet
long and 1,200 feet wide. Mr. DeMerell
presented these plans to the commit

and rough spots ironed out with rol- i
lersj' a circle, 100 feet in diameter,
with a conspicuous white band, three
feet wide, on the outer edge must be
made. Stonedust was suggested by one
of the committeemen a favorable ma
terial for the band covering, being a
white subntarwe which compacts solid
ly with proper treatment. Inside the
circle will be number M, the official
number given to Barre by the Greater
Vermont association's aerial commit
tee. An aircraft hangar must be erected
to house one or more machines, but a
yet the exact sire of this structure is
undetermined and the possibilities are
that a temporary structure win tie
erected for the expert airman, who will
fly from Boston to Barre to attend the
Vermont state convention of the Amer
ican Legion to be held here August 30
and 31 t.
Many plots were examined by the
Barre aviation committee before the
final conclusion to establish it in Barre
Town wa made, the trotting park off
Ayer street being considered among
them. The first airplane to land in
Barre, July 4th, 1919, at the homecom
ing celebration to World war veterans,
proved that this field was unfavorable
for such purposes', small, rolling hills
preventing safe landings.
This progresMve step taken, by the
Barre board of trade places the granite
center of the world one step higher on
the ladder of progress, for Barre is
among the few town or cities to com
ply readily with the wishes of the
Greater Vermont association. It offi
cials have worked incessantly since
that April meeting to establish such a
field and, when it was learned an el
army aviator wished t attend the
Legion meeting here, "full steam
ahead" was the order f the Barre
hoard of trade.
As befor intimated this proposition
of establmhing a permanent landing
field for aviator ha been in consider
ation ever ince Jame 1. Taylor of
Burlington, secretary of the Greater
Vermont association, spoke at the an
nual meeting of the Barre board of
trade last April Mr. Taylor then em
phatired the necessity of such field in
ttt Vermont town and cities, declaring
that unless Vermonter awoke to prog
re of thi nature the tate would
le outdone by it neighbor, moot of
whom already realise th value of ac
tion. One thing in particular which he
said in conjunction with this was that
Brre is in the direct line between Bos
ton and Montreal, two citie, which,
with projxr aviation fields along the
route, could establish an international
air traffic. Aero mail service has been
ei-tablished in many part of the Unit
ed States already and theie is a great
possibility that such will be estab
lished through Vermont.
Yesterday's item referring to rela
tives of Miss Clara Wightman, who
formerly lived in this vicinity, was
misleading, in that it spoke of Dennis
Britton as an early storekeeper in
Barre. The spelling of the name should
have been Britain, and it was Samuel,
who kept store in Barre in the Rey
nolds block and not Dennis. His broth
er by that name was one of the 49-ers,
who came back, married Lucy Walker
and settled on the west hill, Barre,
now called Prospect street, in the
house topped by a cupola. He lived and
died there, a farmer. Mrs. Julia Britain
Drury was a sister and liveJ in the
brick structure on Prospect street1,
Barre, which is now used as a garage.
These were great-uncles and a great
aunt of Miss Wightman, whose home
is in Chicago, but is just now a guest
at the inn here.
J. N, Kinney got a painful injury
last week at the sawmill of the Wil

A family reunion of the descendants
of Q. M. Carpenter was held in town

All Three Take a Drop in the Chicago
1 Market.
Chicago, July 27. Severe breaks in
the grain and provision markets ye
terday accompanied disturbing finan
cial and industrial developments, es
pecially report of the closing down of
a large motor enterprise on account of
inability to sell its product. Wheat
dropped as u h as eight cent a bushel
and corn 0.
Optimistic bank reports about crop
conditions have started the grain mar
ket downward, but lowest prices came
after word had .been circulated of
weakness in the stock market and of
industrial difficulties. Prices on change
here finished at the lowest point of the
day, with December delivery of corn
down to 1.28 in aome cases ai against
1.37 at the close on Saturday.
Extreme decline in wheat amounted
to eight cent a bushel at 2.51 for
March delivery. Pork fell two dollars
a barrel and lard more than one dol
lar a hundredweight.
Much of the selling pressure both in
grain and provision came from , dis
tressed holders. There was also much
speculative dealing and unusual lack of
buying support.
