Speaking on the proposed consolida tion of the bureaus of vocational edu cation, war risk insurance and a part of the public health service he declared: "Heads of the bureaus do not get along together nor do they cooicrate for the best interests of the service men. Statements by them, which they have made to us repeatedly, have no tnith in them. They spend the greater part of their time getting up records. In other words, preparing their alibis beforehand."

Lonnie Eaton, the man the sherilf forgot to hang, may be dead legally. Attorney General Coco frankly admitted to-day he didn't know, but reports from Ou ehita parish prison, wherelonnie b,as been taking in, legally or illegally, his regtilar three squares a day ever since his execution was mislaid by Sheriff Frant Feb. 4, do not indicate that his appetite has suffered because of his possible demise. Sheriff tirant wrote the governor yesterday that in the press of civil and criminal matters reb. 4 he utterly for got the mandute to put the negro, con victed of the murder of a white man, to death on that day. The sheriff didn't know what to do about it. He had no warrant to execute his prisoner on any other day and asked for instructions. J he governor turned the matter over to Attorney General Coco who is rak ing the law books for precedents. Jt was said tbe once in jeopardy princi ple of law might prevent any execu tion. In the meantime the negro is phy sically alive and the board of pardons still has before it an application for clemency. BUSINESS CONDITIONS ARE NEARING NORMAL j had made a mistake onee lie did not think it need make another. Mr. Ciishnian of Rochester thought ' this was not the only bill the assembly would be called upon to raise salaries. "But let us take a stand, backed by moral obligation. If an officer is not getting fair pay let us give it to him. It will be a difficult task to show our constituents we have accomplished much in the way of economy if we don't let our economic genius go farther than the salaries of the state officers. Dignify the offices by sufficient pay. 1-iCt tm not indulge in that pessimis tic economy of cutting down a man's salary when we are willing to expend a small fortune on the bovines of this state."

Field Marshal Von Hindenburg said to-day in an inter view that the French were "hankering" for the Ruhr region, a Manger that must be taken seriously. He said the military leaders of France were unable to rid themselves of their fear of (ier manv, doubtless owing to F'rance's de creased population. Americans, he believed, had altered their previously hostile opinions about (iermany. He said he considered that bolshevism in East Prussia was clearly losing ground. He came here for the purpose of delivering a speech at the christening of the cargo steamer Hindenburg. At Plant in Philadelphia Which Was Raided By Government Agents. - Washington. D. C. Feb. 0. Arrest of five men in Philadelphia in a raid upon the printing shop of Henry (Jiaqelli, where counterfeit internal revenue liq uor stamp's were being produced, was announced here to-day bv t hief Moran of the secret service. Chief Moran said about 100.000 slrii stamps, as well as liquor labels and plates, were seized. Gianelli, Carl Weiss and Harry Mil man were arrested as distributors of the stamps. I wo print ers also were taken into custody. Chief Moran said Weiss had liO.tMKI stamps ready for distribution. Recent raids bv secret service agents, Chief Moran asserted, had disclosed liq uor hearing internal revenue stamps and brand laliels so cleverly counter feited that the bottles could not be told from those regularly withdrawn from bond except upon the closest ex amination. An analysis of the liquor in some of these bottles ,he declared. showed that the contents were adul terated siilliciently to kill. Evidence to lie brought out in one big case in De troit, he added, would show death cauied by such liquor supposedly with drawn from a government bonded ware house. li :.. i .i.... l i..

(In leav ing the hakcr women attacked him. flung the rolls into the gutter and pur sued the innocent buyer down the street Other attacks flared np in va rious parts of the city and to-day shop- While the Vermont Senate plunged through a routine calendar this morn ing, the House resolved itself into a sort of debating society, and expressed its individual views on S. 14, increas ing the pay of assistant judges from $3 to $4 a day, which it finally killed after extensive debate; on II. 234, pro viding that applicants for drivers' li censes shall give a demonstration be fore an authorized representative ap pointed by the secretary of state, which was finally ordered to a third reading by a good majority; and on S. 1, providing that voters in direct primaries shall declare their party af filiations. It was only after lengthy debate in which there were a host of speakers that the House by a yea and nay vote of 72 to 151 refused to accept the ma jority report and thus refused to re ject the latter bill, so that it went to a third reading. S. 1, came from the committee on suffrage and elections with the major ity of the committee opposing it, but with a minority report of thre of the committee in its favor. Mr. Ballou of Chester led the minority and was the first speaker in favor of the bill. He railed attention to the fact that a plank of the Republican platform had called for such a measure. Mr. Chase of Bennington declared the platform was a pledge made to the peoplo of Vermont and that the bill should be passed. Mr. Cushman of Rochester opposed not only the bill, but the entire pri mary system, which he said took away a man's right to vote as he pleased. Mr. Morrison of Dummerston favored the bill. Mr. Pollard of Cavendish spoke at length against it. He said that the measure would take us back to the old system, whereby a man is led to the ballot box and watched while he casta Lia. ballot,- "dohn Smith or somelxidy else goes up into room 310 in the ermont hotel and writes a few resolutions, then come down and reads them and they are adopted and made the Republican platform,' said Mr. Pollard. He thought the representatives elected by the people should not be bound by any such platform. It had been inferred, he said, that a large number'' of Demo crats were voting the Republican tick et in the primaries. -'That is the first time that I have heard." he said, "that there are a large numler of Democrats in Ver mont." " Mr. Pollard paid his respects to Miss Beard of Orange, who signed the ma jority report in opposition to the bill. Sir. O Brien of South Burlington in terrogated Mr. Chase of Bennington as to what would lie done with the inde pendent voter under this law and if the law would not destroy the secrecy of the Australian ballot. Mr. Chase thought this might be so to a certain extent. Me. Button of Middlebury cham pioned the bill. He answered Mr. O'Brien, saying that the independent voter ha the opportunity to cliooe lietween the party tickets, or to make up a ticket of his own. But why an independent voter should want to jro in to vote at a Re publican or a Democratic primary is bevond me," said Mr. Button. A man should certainly not lie al lowed to go in there and vote for the wort man. simply to defeat the party in the election. Mr. Button said that the mafi rea son he wa supporting the bill was be cause the Republican party had civen fice. The assistant judges are the se lectmen of the county. Three dollars a day is too small when it is hardly possible to pet a room at the county seat for less than that. Mr. Barber of Wilmington said the measure provided for "necessary ex penses when away from home on offi cial business." Highway Commissioner Bill Held Up. When Mr. Bush of Benson asked Hale K.

That the moving picture censorship bill is stirring up much interest about the state was shown when a large num ber of people appeared at the public hearing before the general committee of the legislature last evening. Those whp spoke in favor of the measure included Rev. Joseph Reynolds of Winooski, Mr. and Airs. JMllas . Pollard of Burlington, Rev. H. B. Ran kin of Newport, Senator Ira Lafleur of Middlebury, M.

Almon, one of the proprietors of the Playhouse at Mont pelier, Mr. Bradley, representative from Swanton and Judge Warner iiraharn of Bellows Falls. It was sitated that there had been some misunderstanding about the time of this public hearing and that some of the representative of moving pictures interest had asked tq be heard at a later date.

Those who spnke in favor of the bill advanced two classes of arguments why it should pass: First, that it was for the interest of public morals; sec ond, that it was for the benefit of the moving picture houses themselves. The arguments against the bill were chiefly that a state censorship would not prove practicable and that the public as a whole should censor the picture rather than any two or three people in the state.
