PROBLEMS
Gov. Coolidge Delivered a
Message Also and Dean
Le Baron R. Briggls of
Harvard University Read
a Poem Before Distin-
1 guished Guests. .
Plymouth, Mass., Dec. 21. The Seeds
Vf the Mgrim fathers, their idea, and
the lessons they left for posterity were
.described with present-day application
5n exercises here to-day celebrating the
WlOth anniversary of their landing from
the Mayflower. A company of descend
ants of the little band, gathered with
'distinguished guests in a modest thea
tre which has the largest auditorium
jlmt the town affords, heard addresses
Jiy Senator Lodge and Governor Cool
idge and a poem by Dean LeBaron R.
Tirigg of Harvard university.
Senator Lodge pictured the world at
Hhe present time as "exhausted and al
.most prostrate, with suggestions in
ifcsia of world conquest, while in an
, !ber region a savage despotism which
. lias replaced the autocracy of the
...-Czar is thnt'Lcning the destruction of
1 $11 ' civilisation." Born of the great
war and its legacies, he said, the men
tal and emotional condition known as
pessimism was rising up but he con
cluded that "while the gTeat republic
jrmaiiied true in heart and deed to the
memory of the Pilgrims of Plymouth,
'it would "take no detriment even from
Hbe hand of time."
. Governor Coolidge said no such body
ever east so gTeat an influence on hu
tnan history as this company of Pil
grims, in appearance weak, persecuted,
. rejeetnl, despised and insignificant, "but
jn reality strong and independent? a
jn'ichty hoi-t of whom was not worthy,
destine to free mankind."
Plymouth Rock, the base of which
lias not been visible for many years,
Jias. been completely revealed by the
iCicavations made in accordance with
y1he plan of the Pilgrim tercentenary
commission for restoring the ancient
shore line of the harbor and to-day the
visitor had the rare opportunity of
peeing the famous relio as a whole. The
prance boulder which forms the base
a the appearance of an inverted bowl
iwhilc over it swung in chains for the
(contractor's operations, were the two
l.roken parts of the rock itsell tnat
tormed the stepping stone of the Fil
brims from boat to shore. :
- The special train bringing the guests
from Boston found the station jammed
Vith townspeople and children. Ail ac
count of a mild -epidemic the chiklren
liad been banned bv the board , of
, liealth but they broke away from the
restrictions and were on hand to greet
and see those who came to do honor to
the nation forefathers. In the crowd
were many mill hands, some of whom
Irould not speak English, who had been
piven a holiday.
. Sheriff Karl Blake in uniform and
Ajkearing the sword of his office formal-
y welcomed the party to Plymouth
iounty, the present day equivalent oi
the old Plymouth plantation.
True to the tradition of the day the
party of several hundred, including
leading-intellectual, diplomatic, govern
rnental and judicial lights, trooped
afoot from the railroad station to the
theatre, where Senator Lodge and Gov
ernor Coolidge with Dean Briggs took
the center of the stage, backed by aa
America ft flag. Governor Coolidge oe-
fupied the, rush -bottomed chair, once
wed by Governor Cari-er:
The theatre, seating about 900, was
much too small to accommodate all
who wished t he present .at the- ex
rrrises. Sheriff Blake called the gat h
rring to order and -then Loui K. ins
cett of Boston, chairman of the Pil
jrrim tercentenary " "commission, ' took
barge, calling first upon Rev. Arthur
B- Whitney f the First church of
TMjmooth. 'who opened the exercise
vMh prayer.
- The words of the ode, "The Pilgrom
Father, where are they?" written for
the celebration of a century ago by
, flev. John Pierpont. sounded loud
through the hall a the Pilgrim men's
thorns sane the line.
- (iovernnr I ootid (re was the first of
the speakers. He followed by
Vaa Brinr. who read his rm and
then after the sinking of "The Landing

opening line. "The breakimr wave

tion to suspend calendar business to

iff bill right of way.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 21. Propo
nents of the Fordney emergency tariff
bill and the opposition were engaged
to-day in linking up their forces pre
paratory to the fight when the meas
ure is called up for -consideration in
the House to-morrow. Open antago
nism to the measure, in both Senate and
House, was manifested for tha first
time yesterday, after it was reported
by the ways" and means committee
with the period of application reduced
to ten months from the one year pe
riod previously fixed. ' -
Added to the" House forces opposing
in principle the proposed tariff pro
tection rates on agricultural products
were many representatives of urban
and manufacturing districts, who in
dicated that they would oppose the
measure because of its failure to in
clude manufactured commodities. At
the same time the Senate Democratic
steering committee announced that it
did not view the measure as an emer
gency proposal and would demand that
it be considered by the finance com
mittee in regular order when it reached
the Senate.
Long staple or Kgyptian cotton is
among the commodities nametl in the
hill on which high import duties won hi
be imposed. This item was omitted
from the list given out last night by
Chairman Fordney because the com
mittee bad been unable to prepare es
timates of the revenue which would be
derived on the basis of the seven rents
per pound duty imposed.

jor and minor leagues can operate. A

barriers but this year with
Christmas only four days away
the residents have yet to see
their first snowstorm of the sea

whether Santa Claus will find a
demand for their stocks of these

STATE HAD TRIED
TO HAVE PARTS READ
Prosecution Is Nearing
End of Case Against
Mudgett
Hyde Park, Dec. 21. Reading of the
transcript of the testimony taken at
the inquest on the death of Miss Amy
Shonio, including that orArthur Mud
gett, occupied the attention of tUe
court to-day at Mudgett's trial for
murder.
Attorney General Archibald wished
to have read only portions of the tes
timony, which he said tended to show
that Mudgett had made different state
ments regarding the girl's death, but
Mudgett's counsel insisted that the
records of the entire proceedings
should be read and this was agreed to.
It was expected the reading would oc
cupy the entire day.
Because of the litter left behind the
court room and the building by wom
en who bring their lunches, Judge
Moulton to-day said picnickers must
eat elsewhere than in the court house.
Several women attended the session
to-day carrying children in thyr arms.
According to the testimony of Mrs.
Ha Atwell, an employe of the Ever
ett house in Johnson, and an inti
mate friend of the accused man, Mud
gett was in ' Mrs. Atwell's room at
the hotel for more than an hour on the
Saturdav evening when Miss Shonio
died. When on the stand yesterday
afternoon, Mrs. Atwell recounted the
meeting with Mudgett that night.
She declared that the 37-year-old
lumberman came to see her at 9:45
o'clock and remained with her ontil
10:45. Under the cross-examination of
Attorney David K. Porter, she denied
that there was any dew or dirt on
Mudgett's shoes or clothing when he
came into the hotel and declared that
his actions were not out of the ordi
nary. Deputv Sheriff W. G. Jones of John
son testified that he sat on the steps
of the Riddle store in Johnson until
10:30 o'clock the same evening and
that when he started for home he met
Mudgett. The two men exchanged
greetings, he said, and passed on.
John Sweet of Johnson told of meet
ing Mudgett on the corner of Main
and Railroad streets about 10:30
o'clock Saturday evening and talked
with him fr a few minutea. Mud
gett" asked Sweet a simple question,
he said, and then started down Rail
road street in the direction of his
boarding honse.
Charles Davis, who formerly con
ducted a jitney business in Johnson,
testified to driving Mudgett to Xortn
Hyde Park about 7:30 o'clock on the
Sunday morning following the night
the girl was supposed to have been
murdered.
Other witnesses yesterday were
Traeey Small of Johnson, Miss Flos
sie De'meritt, a school teacher of John
son, Ithamer Sweet of Johnson, Edwin
Tinker, who lived near the road lead
ing to the cemetery in Johnson, and
Mis May Leach. Tinker testified to
having seen Iudgett on several Sun

More than a third of the births in
Barre in 1920 occurred at the Barre
City hospital, according to the figures
presented in the annual reports of
that institution and read at the an
nual meeting last evening. Reports of
the institution also showed Ma.t the
number of patients cared for during
the year was 705, an increase of 225
over the previous year. The total in
come for the year was $25,650.18, with
expenditures of $24,97.87. The. total
of the hospital endowment fund on Dec.
1, 1920, was $22,382.41, an increase of
$1,229.72 for the year, and the indebt
edness of the hospital was reduced
from $25,350 to $22,761.06, or $2,588.94.
The meeting, which was held in the
city court room, re-elected Dr. O. G.
Stickney aa ' president of the corpora
tion, Dr. W. D. Rcid as vice-president,
H. W. Scott, clerk, for the ensuing
year, and James Mackay, Dr. W. K. La
zell, A. C. Moore and F. E. Langley as
trustees for three years.
The reports submitted wel-o, first,
that of the .executive committee, as
follows:
"Fulfilling the purpose for which it
was designed the Barre City hospital
has cared for more patients during
1920 than in any previous year, the
total number being 705 as compared
with 4S0 in 1919. These 70ii patients
received 8,145 days' nursing, of which
253 days were free service, and 905
days were free care of babies. Births
at the hospital for the year numbered
9. The largest number of patients in
any one day was 39 and the smallest
10. The average for the entire year
was 22 plus. Receipts from the care of
patients totalled $19,051.01, but expenses
considerably exceeded this sum as the
cost of caring for the sick steadily in
creased during the year like every
thing els In order to help meet the
shortage for this year the city appro
priated $3,000 which gave much appre
ciated relief in meeting current ex
penses. From the war chesWund $5,
088.94 wa received and appTied on the
mortgage debt.
"The Ainsworth X-ray department is
proving an important adjunct to the
greater scope of the hospital's serv
ice. The ladies' hospital aid gave their
usual valuable assistance, both in help
ing to supply the linen and in efficient
ly conducting the annual bag day. More
generous bag day contributions were
received this time than in any previ
ous rear. 4
"The $1,000 received from the Mrs.
Helen M. Fowler estate, to be known
as the "Stillman Wood"" endowment
fund, was invested in 4',4 per cent gov
ernment bonds with a par value of
$1,200.
"The steady growth of the institu
tion's work, coupled with the seeming
ly unwritten law for expenses of all
hospitals to exceed the regular income,
makes more urgent the need of in
creased permanent funds. So it is sin
cerely hoped that the activities of this
institution may be extended through
further endowments. There is no bet
ter way to perpetuate a name and
perpetuate it in a grateful manner
than through a hospittal endowment
fund. It keeps on doing good indefi
nitely. In this respect how appro
priate are the words of Chalmers,
'Do good, and leave behind you a
monument that the storm of time can
never destroy. Write your name in
kindness, love and mercy on the hearts
of thousands; you will never be forgot
ten'." The Treasurer's Report.

Batre City Hospital association. I here

the Barre Citv hospital for the year
