MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRES8 The Ansoeiated Pra U excluaively entitle to the uic for republication of all news dis patrhca ctedited to it or not otherwiae cred ited in this paper, and alao the local newa I'tblibhed therein. It may take a skillful engineer to bridge the gap between Gov. Hartness and the legislators over the Bates matter. The city of Boston starts the muni cipal year with $3,870,000 in its treas ury. Mindful of Vermont's experience, one might ask if it is cash in hand or a surplus. The well -trained chorus of shouts in protest is being sent out from Ger many over the allied reparations term. The protests were anticipated and are, therefore, discounted. After the discovery by officers of ten quarts of liquor in a Brattleboro man's coalhin there arines the dolorous re frain: Of all sad words of tongue or pen the saddest are these it might have bin. The Vermont legislature having passed the lump sum salary bill, to apply to itself as well as to future leg islatures, it remains to be seen wheth er there is virtue in the argument that a lump sum salary will have a tendency to force shorter sessions of the legislature. The present legisla ture is in a position to demonstrate. It looks as if Judge Landis is going to le overworked if he attempts to run league baseball and sit on the bench. There is a custom in some sec tions of the country that judges should not engage in other business, especial ly in law practice, in order that their minds may be unbiassed for the duties of a judge. "Let's go" was the chief battle slo gan of the American boys over there in 1017-1S, according to Colonel Kd ward L. Munson, chief of morale of the general staff. "Let's get it" was the slogan of a certain percentage of tli population over here at the same time; and, let it be stated, many of them did get it. The two slogans, the one expressed and the other implied, represent the antipodes of American loyalty and patriotism. No radical departure is made by Montpclier citizens in their form of government, although one rather sur prising feature is the proposal to grant no pay for services as alderman or mayor. If it is worth anything to manage a business of hundreds of thousands of dollars a year it ought to be worth thirty cents an hour for time actually spent in the work. It will be an extremely public-spirited citizen or one with time hanging heavy on his hands who will sacrifice his own busi ness and his own interests without getting some compensation. It is gen erally agreed that mayors and alder men in rniall cities are not paid accord ing t the rat of wages they command in some regular occupation; and the men who become candidates for these oflices appreciate the fact that they are inviting some sacrifice in so doing. However, to ask them to make sacri fice of time, money, energy, conven ience and pleasure without at least a mall measure of recompense is, we be lieve, asking too much of even the most public-spirited persons. The ar rangement might work for little while, b(it eventually such a system would be likely to fail of its purpose. THIS IS NOT A SALE it is simply a recogni tion of the returning value of a dollar. Dur ing war times it shrunk, now, here it has regained its former elastic charatcer. Here's a fine blue serge suit at $30.00, . A beautiful brown chestnut suit at $32.50. A fancy mixture in choice tones at $35.00. . - F. H. Rogers & Company they would sacrifice millions of men on each side, for once engaged in a struggle it would be a fight to the bit ter end. So another great war be tween Great Britain and the United States is really not conceivable. Most people in their right senses realize that fact and they refuse to be shaken out of their conviction by any amount of jingoist talk on either side of the Atlantic ocean. To solidify their conviction and to restore sane mental action to the jingoists such statements as that by Gen. Fcrshing, the man who has been through the horror of the greatest war jet fought, are most timely. Take it from a warrior who knows "a war between Great Britain and the United States is not conceiv able." Get the notion out of your brain that such a thing is on the world program that lies in the future. AX INTOLERABLE WAR. Gen. Pershing's statement before the House naval committee that "a war between Great Britain and the United Mates is not conceivable" will go far toward counteracting the tendency of the vicious talk that has been heard in some quarters in the United States during the last few weeks in connec tion with the discussion of the arma ment question. Of course, .the possi bility of a war lictween these two fn-at English-speaking countries is not entirely out of the question; but the chance are very remote indeed if the leaders of the two nations continue in sane mitid and the people do not let too murh of this jmgolxt talk sink into their brains. It would be on of the wort calami the wirld h ever known if these two nation with m much in common and equipped, as they are, with such .remetidous armaments should engage in a terrifir Mmgglr, as such an en fitintT inetitably woull turn out to I. 11 u.ia' itm, stippuaeUly H in part by the- to nation, would re frit e uch a reaction it could not re cover from for a century at least, ani the nations themselves, regardless of which om b"iild prove the victor, nli be put ImuV t the leel of ec m rate nation m wtrd ic)?-H nee, tn te! ff bcW ng tb plaoe at the f-we-Irctit aa they row bold, while in ma terial value thy acnll be swept t tit br"k f kaekrnptry and in tV4 SOUTH BARRE Dr. Bancroft, who has been on the sick list, is able to be out again.

The trout bill was advanced to a third readine as amended, making the open season April 15 to Aug. 15. This is the committee compromise. Mr. lyer of Salisbury presided dur ing the most of the afternoon ses sion. Lump Sum Salary Passes Senate. The Senate last evening disposed of its calendar in a brief session, the lump sum salary bill (H. 6) being disposed of in less than three minutes without one dissenting vote. The passage of this bill brings to a successful culmination the efforts of over 16 years to enact a fixed salary for members of the gen eral assembly. Under the new law, when signed by the governor, members will receive four hundred dollars for the session and 'J0-cent mileage. Senator Vilas served notice of his in tent to oppose S. 41, giving additional powers to state board of charities and probation : "This bill gives the board too much authority," said the senator, "and judg ing from some other bills I see around here, this board is going to be an ex tremely powerful body." In the ab sence of Senator Carpenter, the bill was recommitted. The Senate passed the resolution rat ifying the suffrage amendment. Legislative Notes. The legislature of IPOrt will have its reunion on Thursday, Feb. 10, and it is expected that over 80 members will be present. The governor has appointed John Thomas of Wells River to the board of veterinary registration, Philip T. H. Pierson of Bennington to the board of charities and probation, H. K. Sher burne of Rutland to the board of osteo pathic examiners and Adrian Holmes of Burlington to the state board of accountancy. The dope about the corridors is that neither Linus Leavens nor John S. But tle is to be re-appointed fish and game commissioner and commissioner of in dustries, respectively, which may still further complicate the situation be tween the executive and the legislature. The Senate passed H. On, under sus pension of the rules. It gives the town auditors five days more to get out their annual reports. New Bills in House. H. 104.

Rogers' Walk Over Boot Shop Alway Ready for Duly The engine is the heart of the motor truck the driving unit which must always be ready for duty if your truck is to give the quality of service you have a right to expect. In the great Inter national Motor Truck plant at Akron, Ohio, all possible precautions are taken to see that every International engine measures up to Interna tional standards. All the lessons learned in 89 years of successful manufacturing experience and over 15 years of power-unit building are utilized to improve their construction. When the com pleted trucks go out for service in every section of the country and in every line of business, 92 direct company branches and thousands of local distributors stand guard over their performance. International Harvester service begins with the raw material, and it never ends. In the International final drive, the differential gears and driving shafts are in front of the weight-carrying member, which is a solid drop forged piece of chrome-nickel steel heat-treated throughout. This construction shortens the pro peller shaft. It also causes the driving pinions to exert a lifting force when the truck is running forward. In other words, the gear before the axle tends to relieve the wheel bearings of weight, instead of overloading them. This difference is greater than it might seem at first thought and is a decided advantage, particularly when the truck is compelled to pull through muddy or rutty roads or in heavy sand. Call in and inspect the different sizes of trucks, also inspect our large stock of parts. Opp. Fire Station Telephone 750. II. F. Culler & Son Sales Rooms, 750.
