MEMBER Or THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Aaaoeiatcd Prene ie exclusively en titled to the ass for republication of all news die patches credited to It or net otherwise era Iteel In this paper, and alas the local news pusuaasd Ultra. - Barre showed its, appreciation John Gordon by splendid vote. of Tha women voters swung the elec tion and they evinced the most enthu siacm perhaps because it was their first real experience in. the game of pol itics. The Cudahy Packing Co. passed its dividend but has not stated how much money waa left in the treasury which might have been diverted to a dividend That's rather important. - Capt. D'Annunzjo takes advantage of the comparative lull in the internation al sensation market by going out and capturing a few villages. It's hard to keep an energetic man down. -Publicity counted strongly in the gubernatorial campaign. The moat thoroughly advertised candidate won. With the pictures removed, the "caows can come daown" without fear. It spoiled a rare bit of good fortune when the owner came along and claimed those two "adult cheeees" which Editor Parsons of the Northfleld News picked up on the Barre-Mont-pelier road. There is no disputing the fact that it takes publicity to win votes under the primary system and that it takes money to get publicity. The guberna torial candidate who spends the most money usually gets the most votes. "It's a regular picnic," asseverates the wife of Mayor Hylan of New York, referring to the fact that she does all the cooking, dishwashing, sweeping and dusting in New York City's first offi cial household, her only maid having re signed last May to get married. That is not to say, however, that the mayor doesn't take hold now and then. Chairman White of the Democratic national committee speaks rather slightingly of the Republican victory in Maine, but ex-Chairman Cummings of that same committee promptly an nounced that he would not be a can didate for United States senator against Brandegee in Connecticut. Ac tions sometimes speak louder than words. I CURRENT COMMENT -w .1 ) No matter where the boys are going this Fall, here are the suits that will help make the going easy. Coats belted or plain, patch pockets or Nor folk. Every model you see here is new every style is correct every fashion is on view and all the colors in vogue for this season. Everything for boys from four years up. A few suits priced down to close. F. H. Rogers & Company tend. So the people await emectant- y. They know, too, that Mr. Hartnees is a gentleman above reproach and they look to him to grace the chair of governor (in due course of events with dignity and to perform the func tions of the office with marked devo tion to duty. Dale asked for one more term under a Republican administration. The first part of his plan seems about to be ful filled. The next part will be the elec tion of a Republican president. The third will be Dale's retirement from of fice at the close of the next term. We have the highest esteem for Dale as a gentleman and hope to see him have a successful term in the lower house of Congress. Then, in view of his repeat ed statement during the present cam paign one might expect that he will retire from the office in favor of some other man, or rather to make way for some other man (or woman). No one professes to know the cause of the $25,000 farm fire in the town of Fairfax recently; but the newspaper reports say that the farm hands were addicted to the use of cigarettes and other forms of tobacco and that the fire was discovered soon after the men returned to the houie from the barn. Inasmuch as there seems to hsv been ti ether possible cause for the out break of the fire it must be inferred hat the great " was caused by some carelessness on the part of the smokers. Fsrmers msy find it neces sary to put up the warning: "No smok ing in the hsybarn." ALEXANDER DUNNETT. The late Alexander Dunnett of St Johnsbury was of the tvpe of sturdy ercnonter," both physically and men tally, which one is accustomed to as sociate with the state. Born in Ver mont and reared in the famous old town of Peacham, he developed many of -the traits which go to make up spiennia sort oi individual. He was keen mentally and possessed of a good knowledge of human nature ' in its many phases. In law he stood high As a citizen he was rated as one of the best. As a man he was held in high esteem throughout the state. The degree of esteem in which he was held is exemplified bv the many honors which came to him ever since he, was first admitted to the bar back in 1877 That he was denied the honor, which he sought, of being a representative of Vermont in Congress, was not because of a low estimate of his worth by his fellow-citizens. And, in this connec tion, it is rather a strange coincidence that he should have passed away on the day when another contest was be ing waped very similar to the one in which he participated six years ago. Though denied the distinction of going to Congress, Mr. Dunnett had since then been given other recognition, which showed the extent of the confi dence in which his fellow-citizens held him. He waa of the type truly repre sentative nt the state and had come to be recognized as one of the state's leading citizens. THE HARTNESS VICTORY. By virtue of decisive victory in the primaries, .Tames Hartness of FpringfleM seems certain to be the next governor ef Vermont, as the nnmina- ion by the Republicans Is tantamount to election in the usual course of pro cedure. Mr. Hartness and hie lieu tenants have conducted vigorous ratrpaign and by means of it the can- dte has beoome well known to the pople of the state, whereas, before the eempairn, be waa one of the Wat nown men in puMic Lfe in the state.

The senate committee investigating campaign expenses apparently is tern porarily halted by lack of further evi dence or charges puDiiciy maae oy uov ernor Cox, and the public will give some attention to what has already been disclosed. The Republican na tional committee and its "money dig gers" admit they had a plan to raise a campaign fund of nearly $5,000,000 and that they had resorted to the "drive plans" that have secured many millions from the American people since the outbreak of the World war; but ther have not reached their self erected coal. ' Governor Cox has given no evidence of a $15,000,000 fund for the purchase I of the presidency. His evidence as pre sented by Edmund H. Moore showed large quotas for certain cities. No evi dence of the improper use of campaign funds has been offered and Cox' chief spokesman makes no charge. Probably the investigation will bring an end to the employment of nrotea sional "money diggers" for political or charitable purposes. It has -been shown that "money diggers" are very expensive agents for any organization to employ and that their methods are hardly fair to the men they "work for funds, because they benefit so largely themselves. Unconsciously the Democrats have shown their own failure to win the sup port of the business men of the coun try. They have not secured much money and do not know where -they can got more. I hey have apparently "worked" federal employes to the limit and are still short. Governor Cox with his millions can continue his personal campaign but there are no funds for a general organization to take care of the details. It is quite possible that their failure to get the support of busness interests is the forerunner of their re- jestion by the general public. The Republicans have placed before the committee the full list of their sub scriptions, have made public their method of raising funds, the objects for which the money is to be used and now should follow the Democrats no further recrimination and mud slinging. They are in posilion to discuss and de fend the principles for which they de clared in their platform and will strengthen themselves so far as they adhere to their original campaign; plans. A lie will travel a mile whil truth is getting on its boots and they cannot hone to overtake the, Democratic candidate's misrepresentations. The country should return to the considera tion of the fundamental principles in volved in this campaign for the presi dencv. Brattlcboro Reformer. A Big Thing! You may think it's a little thing to save a dollar and deposit it on your savings account but, as a matter of fact, it is a mighty big thing. It's the habit that counts. What hope would there be for civilization and what progress could we make as a nation if the virtue of thrift were not a part of our character? New England thrift even promises to play an important part, yes, a leading part, in the nation's politics eventually spreading its influence to world affairs. It .is the savings of former generations that has made possible the de velopment of the telephone, the, telegraph, the electric light, the automo bile, moving pictures, the phonograph, the flying machine, farm machinery, the cylinder printing press, the steamboat, the cotton gin, and many other American inventions. These wonderful products of science could never have been brought within reach of those who are so generally using them to-day except through the savings of the people ; it was their money that promoted their manufacture and sale; their confidence in the men connected with the dif ferent enterprises that led them to this action. , We are reaping the rewards of their thrift, and so to-day, your dollar deposited on your savings account will go to promote industry and stabilize credit making the world a better place to live in and increasing the oppor tunities of succeeding generations. A good part of your dollar will go directly to stimulate home industry and make.

The Peoples National Bank 4 Per Cent The Only National Bank in Barre i Per Cent RUSSIAN SOVIET PLANS GREAT WAR Present Military Operations Are Duly a Part of the World-Wide Offen sive Planned. Mannhrim, Germany, Sept. 15. "The present military operations are onlv a very minor part of the world wide ollensive which soviet Russia is now setting in motion," declared Prince Max" of Baden in the coufte of a lengthy interviey, which appears to (fay in the Baden (State Gazette. Asked whether he saw a way out of the pres ent dilemma for Germany, Prince Max, according to the report, said: "There is only one very slender hope, it consists in an unconditional mainte nance of our neutrality, both to the east and the west, and m one last des perate effort a revision of the Ver sailles peace treaty." Prince Max believe" that what he calls the German resistance to the mor al invastion of bolshevism is bound to crumble down if the checking pressure trorn- the west is kept up. "It would be doing scant justice to Lenines uncanny personalitr, he con tinued, "if one were to believe that he is capable of keeping more than a sham peace with so-called capitalistic states. Lenine believes with religious fanaticism in the victorious march of his idea; the dictatorship of the prole tariat or of the rommunintic portion of the proletariat. He is, of course, enough of a psychologist to understand that a military invasion of any country he wants to dhrupt would be the very means of consolidating it. His plan would rather consist in provoking and fostering civil war in the bordering states so that, when the time wm ripe for invasion, he would find an open door and a union of comrades." Prince Max believes that the pros pects of such a plan succeeding in Ger many are not wholly unpromising, as the "moral invaion," he declares has already set in and news from East Prussia plainly indicates that the red propaganda among farm laborers there s already taking etlect. "Europe to-day is aflame,' he eon ludes, "and the tack of extinguishing the conflagration cannot be postponed. The situation demands the reMora- ion of President Wilson's M4 points," ihich constituted the basis for the treaty, but which were wholly ignored at Versailles. AU artificial edifice erected there have already tumbled down or are threatened with imminent collapse. The fate of Poland is a horrible exam ple. The Polish state can onlv be re vived if. in keeping with president Wilson's words, it comprises an unchal lengeable Polish population."
