That makes enough to send the state Dem ocratic if the new voters were to align themselves with that party, which is a contingency not at all expected. Those lessons in citizenship are now greatly needed since the women were admitted to the right of voting. At the same time there are a good many men now exercising the right of auf frage who ought to be put through the same course of instruction. The wom en have no monopoly on the ignorance regarding civic matters. Tonzi threatens to expose s certain well known "philanthropist" of Boston who backed out of the scheme and caused the collapse of the house of cards. The "philanthropist" must be the collective man who surrendered many millions of dollars to Ponzi, en abling him to live in a mansion, drive a splendid limousine, dresa in the height of fashion and give every evi dence of luxurious ease. They were the real philanthropists. HARDING AS A PLACATER. Decision of Senator Hiram Johnson of California to go on a speaking tour in behalf of the candidacy of Senator Harding closes up another gap caused by the rancor of the Republican na tional convention and will go far to ward restoring allegiance of aome Re publicans who were more or less alien ated when their favorite candidate, Senator Johnson, was lost in the shuf fle at Chicago last June. One note worthy feature of Harding's candidacy to date has been the ability he has dis played, together with his adviser, in smoothing over the ruffled feelings and patting the pride of this or that per son who felt himself aggrieved by iome artion taken inside the party. In this respect Harding shows come resemblance to the man McKinley, who was held up as an example of the Harding type of man. McKinley had a wonderful faculty of salving the wounds of fellow-party men. Senator Harding is following along a similar course and is undoubtedly solidifying the strength of the Republican party preparatory to the election in November.

Editor, Barre Times: Colonel Fred B Thomas of Montpelier, as candidate for state's attorney, is the only veter an of the World war whose name is before the Republican voters of Wash ington county for nomination to a county office. Without casting any re flections upon any other candidate, his friends feel confident that the voters of the county will want to support him and thus recognize these veterans by 4 nominating one of their number on the county ticket. They contend that since there are nine county officers to elect it it fair and reasonable that at least one should be an ex-aervice man, and in Colonel Thomas they have a wor thy candidate".
