Christian, jr., President Harding's secretary, said: "The naval and military forces of the nation can have no part in any demonstration which may be construed as influencing the foreign relations of the republic." The question of using federal troops in the parade came to the prsMent's attention through a .telegram from .lohn F.

The message was sent after Secre tary Hughes had liecn in confidence with Mr. Harding for an hour. During the discussion, Secretary Weeks also was called in and the reports of the military and naval officers in direct charge of the troop at Boston are understood to have been reviewed in detail before a decision was reached. In bis telegram to -the President, Mr. Harrigan declared the celebration wn a local demonstration of loyalty and patriotism, that no devotee of toryism, no matter how exalted his position, can stop." "Referring to the adverse orders is sued by Brigadier (Jeneral Kuckman and "Rear Admiral Dunn, in command of the military and naval force at Boston, the message continued: "Are thee officials American or satellites of foreign government! Are they autocrats or is this a democ racy? -"fney say no authority ran re voke this decree. It is for Washing ton to ay whether they are aupreme.

"HQE RULE" m .OYE BEATEN ' : Aiv Vermont House De Cides Towns "Shall" . Raise Liquidation Tax PELKEY, FAIR HAVEN, PROTESTED PLAN Said It Was Infringement on Rights of the Towns There was a noticeable tendency in the Vermont House to-day to disagree on niOHt subjects which cameup. Mr. Bradley of Swanton started an attack upon salary-raisiing measures in gen eral, and S. 6.1, raising the salary of probate judges, in particular, and aft er a half-hour debate, the bill was passed by a yea and nay vote of 152 to ,)2. v i. Again on If. 397, providing for addi tional taxation of towns to liquidate deficit, a hot debate was started. The bill was originally introduced by Mr. Keyes of Reading, with the provision that towns "shali" each year add an additional tax of five per cent or more to liquidate the deficit of the past year. The word "shall" had been changed to "may," which, Mr. Keyes said, de stroyed the whole force of the bill,, and tie moved to change back to shall. This motion' for amendment brought protests from Mr. Carpenter of Cabot, who defended the right of the small town to do as dt pleased. Mr. F'lint of Xorthfield said that the'state already control's municipal corporations. and that towns exist only through char ters granted by the state, so that the statehould be allowed to regulate in ternal affairs of towns where it ie for their good. Mr. Pelkev of Fair Haven, who hap pened to be wearing a green ribbon, took issue with Mr. Flint, maintained stoutly the right of the town to reg ulate its own affairs and declared that he believed; in "home rule," whereat smiles went around the House. The bill was amended a moved by Mr.. Keyes, 12(1 to 21, and went to a third reading. In spite of Mr. Bradley's protest against increases in salaries, in which he was supported by Mr. Ballou of Chester, and opposed by Mr. Darling of Chelsea. Mr. Austin of Richford and Mr. Pelkey of Fair Haven, the House went ahead and passed the salary bills before it including S. 80, increasing salary of purchasing agent; 8. 73, giv ing sheriffs more pay; and the probate judges' increase measure. The House also passed: II. 267. taxa tion of insurance companies; H. 311, providing for recount of votes in town and city elections; and H. 3D0, an ap propriation to aid the town f Reads boro in repairing a bridge across Deer fieid river. The Senate voted unanimously this morning to reject H. 128 to fix the maximum salary of the commissioner of education at $4,CH)0. Senator Taylor's motion that H. 141, the Vermont. Volstead act, as amend ed be put over until to-morrow, until they have listened to Wayne B, Wheeler to-night, was carried, 17 to 13- The House started an interesting de bate this forenoon on the bill appropri ating aty.tO.OOO to build six stock barns j at the-state fair grounds. The bill had been amended to make it $40,000 and a motion was made in the House tn amend still further by making the amount &l 0,000. "Why. you could put lace curtains in the barns for the amount first asked," declared one speak er. The debate was waxing hot when the members decided to get dinner. The House is also scheduled to take up the Stearns normal school bill, which was originally put over to next week and which was placed on the calendar for to-day after a statement yesterday afternoon. The motion to reconsider and ad vance the normal school bill to-day was made by Representative Wishart of Barre and carried unanimously. In sup- ',: - the ,,;,, v, Wishart said in t art : "I wish to call ;he attention of the House to its vote 1 which it made a special order for H. ! for Tuesday nextj jw,eW A j dcrttand it. every eve ning this week, including lyiday eve ning, has been taken up ly arrange ment with the committee, but 1 cannot see any reeason why this bill cannot lie taken up before Tuesday. "We have a large amount of business j before us and we must begin think j ing of filial adjournment toward the end of this month. I hope the House will reconsider its vote, after which ) will move that the bill br made a special order for to morrow afternoon." The lull to provide for additional compensation ot workmen who have suffered a partial disability and there after a total disability, with provision for a special fund, was rejected in the Senate this afternoon hy a vote of 21 to ; On motion of Sena'or Vilas, on who-e motion the bill had been kept alive after an unfavorable report by the committee, the Senate went into J i-onsmittee of the whole and listened i to an explanation by John S Buttle.
