THE' BARRE
BOLSHEVIKI MASSING
TROOPS ON W RAN GEL
Determined Efforts are. Being Made to
Break Through His
Defenses.
Constantinople, Nov. 6 (By the Asso
ciated Tress). Bolshevik forces are
making determined efforts to crush
through General Wrangel's lines on the
Perekop isthmus,' leading ' northward
from Crimea to the mainland of Rus
sia, and are massing forces further to
the eastward with a view to taking
the long tongue of land known as the
Isthmus of Tehonger. Five infantry
divisions are attacking Perekop. and
fresh storm troops supported, by artil
lery, are being rushed southward front
Salkovo and Genitsehesk to force their
wav into Crimea from the northeast.
It is said the bolsheviki fear their ar
mies will be caught by winter before
they are successful in crusMng Wran
geland that they will become demor
alized. Wrangel's -principal position behind
Perekop centers about the village of
Ioyhoon. Should t he Sivash, or Putrid
sea freeze, as it rarely does, the, de
fense of Crimea would be, more diffi
cult. The bolsheviki so far have not
landed troops, on the long sand bank
on the western side of the sea of Azov,
which is known as as VTongue of Ara
bat." Such an operation would not be
feasible, nor could positions be held
on this narrow neck, of land, as Gen
eral Wrangel's marine ' units control
the sea of Azov.

TRAIN BEATERS. PAID
Norwich Students Vho Rod Free
Freight Brought Into Court
Six students of Norwich university
were brought from Northfleld to Barre
by Deputy Sheriffs Frank Minard and
H. J. Slayton by automobile yesterday
afternoon after warrants for their ar
rest had been made by State's Attor
ney Davis on complaint issued by two
detectives of the Central Vermont rail
way. They were charged with stealing
a ride from Northfield to.Eseex Jutu.
tion Saturday in a freight car. and, as
proven in court, happened to be six of
35 or 40 who were traveling to Bur
lington to attend the Vermont-Norwich
football game.
All six pleaded guilty, and were com
pelled to pay Judge Scott a sum that
averaged $1 1.12 each. Charles C. Jones
of Brookfield and H. K. Trvon of Ber
lin, N. Y., raid a fine of $3 and costs
of $0.25, while the other four, Donald
Griswold of Lancaster, Mass., Ear! W.
fioothon of Lee Center, N. Y., Norman
R. Cornell of Fall River, Mas.,, and
C. L. Patten of Medtield, Mass., each
paid a finis of $3 and costs of $"J3.
The minimum fine for such an offense
is ti and the maximum $20.
Judge Scott took into consideration
the event which inspired their actions
Saturday, as well as the fact that the
lads would be compelled to pay their
fares back to Northfield, so was leni
ont in the matter of fines. The carfare
to Burlington and bark from North
field would have amounted to approxi
mately $3.'.'0, whereas the mileage paid
to the two deputy sheriffs and the
costs of court amounted to nearly four
times the amount. Poor business pol
icy, thought the judge.

lington a few days, receiving no ap
parent benefit.

HARDING GOES

Spends Part of First Day's
Vacation Thus at Point
Isabel
HIS APPEARANCE
' IS HEALTHFUL
Does Not Show Marks of
the Recent Big
Strain
Toint Isabel, Tex., Nov. (By the
Associated Press). Outwardly as care
free as the happiest member of the
little community of fishermen, whosare
his neighbors here, ' President-elect
Harding began to-day a vacatinn-which
he hopes will make up for hisloss of
rest and recreation during the cam
paign. For his first day's outing he planned
for the forenoon a test of t-kill with
rod and reel and for the afternoon a
golf game at the Brownsville coun
try club, 20 miles away. The same
combination is expected to occupy him
during most of the days of his stay
here.
The appearance of the president
elect, as he began his vacation, was
anything but that of a worn-out man.
De.-pite long hours and exertion in
travel and public speaking, he lotlked
robiwt and vigorous and told the vil
lagers he had come more because he
likedtbe seclusion and the outdoor life
than because he needed rest.
For his cruises along the coast, Mr.
Harding used a launch placed at his
disposal by Governor Hobby of Texas.
He planned to take several extended
pleasure trips in the craft and may
also take an automobile trip this week
up the Rio Grande valley.
November 10th has been selected as
the date for the departure of the president-elect
and his party from New Or
leans for Panama, but it is thought
this date may be advanced to give Mr.
Harding a longer stay in the canal
one. i
ASKS FOR PROBATION.
In the Case of Johanna Anderson, Who
is Charged with Adultery.
There was notva great deal doing in
Washington county court Monday aft
ernoon although quite a bit of busi
ness was cleared up. Johanna Ander
son appeared in court for. sentence on
the charge of adultery.
Attorney J. G. Frattini made a plea
for probation on. the ground that aha
and her husband were planning to be
remarried, that while the custo
dy of tho children had been given to
the husband after the divorce, the
moer has had them since that time
and that they were in school at Gran
iteville Monday; also that the respond
ent and Mr. Anderson were writing
frequently and that he was sending her
money" for care of the children. He
tirped that if probation was gii-en the
children could then have their parents
together and that a better place would
be provided them. The father is work
ing on Staten Island. It is understood
he plan to take hia children and Mrs.
Anderson there as soon as he gets the

ARMISTICE DAY
RECOMMENDATION BY
MAYOR LANGLEY
The services which American
youth rendered and the sacrifices
which thousands of them made
to the end that the world might
be heed of the menace of tier
man militarism are not mini
mized by 'the passing of the
years. The first feeling of exul
tation over victorious arms has
given place to a more sober con
sideration of what that victory
meant to the nation and to the
world. Gomes a realization that
the service and the sacrifice I
meant not only a checking of
German aggression but also the
development "of a better world
relationship, a closer bond of .
cvmpathv between the old world
and the new, and a greater tol
eration of the ideals and aspira
tions of the peoples of the na
tions. The world jis not yet
freed of the baser jnstincts of
individuals and of governments,
but progress has been made.
The part played by American
youth in the achievement during
, those tirring day of 1917-18
was incalculable. Tha millions
did not render their service fn
tilely; the scores of thousands
did not make the supreme sacri
fice iu vain. A better world
seems likely to emerge from the
world cataclysm. To them tho
nation is deeply indebted.
Therefore, in tribute to those "
who lie in honored graves in Eu
rope and the United States, and
in recognition of the, splendid
service which they and their liv
ing comrades rendered to the na
tion, I would suggest that
Thursday, Nov. 11, the second
anniversary of the signing of
the armistice, lie observed in
Barre insofar as possible and
that the people give their at-
tention to the significance of the
day and the event commemorat
ed. Frank E. Langley, Mayor.
FINE RECEPTION HELD
In . Honor of Fred F. Pirie's Election
aa Williamstown Representative.
Friends, neighbors and townsmen of
Fred F. Pirie, as well as a goodly dele
gation from Barre City and Town,
gathered at hia home on the hill in
Williamstown last evening to congrat
ulate him on his election and to par
take of his liobpitality.
The house was brilliantly lighted
and the grounds were decorated with
Japanese lanterns, making it very easy
for any not acquainted with the local
ity to perceive that there was to be
aomethin? doing there.
The Williamstown band. led by C.
W. Cram, rendered a number of selec
tions, after which all adjourned to the.
house nearby for an informal chat.
ln.. fionifii.htv welcomed

was no upeech-maker, thanked' the
gathering for their presence and the
honor they had done him and prom
ised to trv to represent fairly the peo
ple of his' town without regard to po
litical preference.
C. W. Cram was called for as an op-
Af Af TiriA in the election and
responded briefly, saying that Mr. Pirie
had won tne election rainy aim eu,uir
Iv and that he should now be support
ed as the choice of the town and dis
claimed any feeling but that, of friend
liness for him.
James K. Pirie was called on as an
old warhorse of the Democratic party
and one who had twice been chosen to
go to Montpelier and. in responding, he
gave some facts from his own experi
ence as a legislator, saying that much
of the real work of the session was
done by the various committees, and
that much time must be spent on a
bill before it becomes a law. He also
spoke of the workmen's compensation
act, which became law when he was a
legislator.
Other who were called on and made
brief remarks were Selectman Herman
E. Smith, with whom Fred Pirie had
served on the board of selectmen; Carl
W. Seaver. the master of the lodge
which Mr. Pirie is a member: a neigh
bor, Frank O'Keilly, who predicted that
a woman would be the next representa
tive from Williamstown and hoped
she might weiph 300 pound. H. L.
Campbell of Barre City and Edward
Bruce of the town were also railed on
and responded briefly.
A humorous selection, "The Namtng
of the Babr," was given by Mrs. Fred
F. Pirie. which was much enjoyed by
the gathering.
A social hour followed, during which
substantial refreshment of coffee,
sandwiches, rake and doughnuts were
eerved.
A point emphasized by eeral
speakers was that in home matters,
partv Imes should not he too closely
draw'n. but that worlhy men and meas
ures should be jpven unqualified sup
port, no matter by whom they were
pr oooM-d.

Explosr & Used
Biddeford, Tf ov. 0. The safe in
the office of the tilf Refining company
on Main street wag blown open , last
night and $700 in cash and $350 in
Checks taken. The job was evidently
that, of professionals, two holes hav- ,
ing been bored in the safe and heavy
charges of explosives being used. The
robbers left no clew.
Entrance to the building was effect
ed by cutting a square of glass from a
rear window, a diamond evidently hav
ing been used for the purpose. No one
in the neighborhood heard the explo
sions and the break was rot discovered
until this morning, when a driver of
the delivery truck opened the office
about 6 o'clock.
LIVE WIRES MAKE TROUBLE,
But, Fortunately, There Were No Seri
ous Consequences.
Though three live wires of 2.300
volts eaeh dropped from poles to side
walks of Barre streets last night dur
ing the rain and windstorm not a sin
gle injury occurred, doubtless due in
in a large measure to the quick action
of the Tenney Service company em
ployes and the management.
The first report of wire trouble
came from Brook street and Harring
ton avenue, where electrical fireworks
were forming an attractive spectacle
of no serious nature tamong the trees.
Soon after, however, a report was re
ceived at the Tenney station that two
live wires were down on Cliff street,
at the edge of the sidewalk. Immedi
ately, the circuit governing this part of
the city was deadened, and with it the
power for many homes and street
lights were shut off. Both wires had
come in contact with a tree limb,
burned off, and dropped to the ground.
While repairs were being made here,
a similar report came from Spatilding
street, tfear the home of H. G. Bennett,
another 2,300-volt wire having dropped
to the sidewalk; and, of course, similar
procedure put that district in dark
ness as well as much of Washington
street, street lights being out for more
than an hour in parts of the city.
Karl Young, manager of the Barre
branch of the Tenney Service company,
said this morning that linemen usually
experience such incidents every fall,
due largely to the summer growth of
trees and their limbs. The trees grow
during the summer, are relieved of
the weight of leaves in the fall, then
the branches spring up to come in
contact with the wires, and when cov
ered with water are quite apt to cause
trouble. This is something which can
not be avoided though linemen are con
tinually guarding against such.
