Wishing to secure full information and to secure evidence to be presented Deputy Collector Webb says he told the men that another official besides himself shared the responsibility of making out the papers and it would be necessary to line him up with the prop osition before it, could go through.

V Prominent attorneys in the state are being consulted as to whether there is need of a special session of the legis lature to re-enact the 00 odd bills that the House and Senate dumped into the governor's office the last three days of the session and some of which did not reach hig office until the day after the legislature had adjourned. In its hurry to get through at a fixed time last weekypossibly the House and Senate arte too fast. Prob ably the supreme court may be asked tor a decision in the matter, lor the secretary of state has to certify that these acts are the laws and he can not do that until he has satisfied him self that the acts were properly signed and this matter, several attorneys, some of whom are state officers, have held that the governor had to sign tljem before the legislature adjourned, w hile others hold that he had a rea sonable time. At the goiernor's office the latter opinion prevails, while-fgr attorneys who are well versed in constitutional law', sustain his point in the matter. It has l.ecn the custom of the gov ernor to sign the bills on the day of final adjournment. H. F. Graham had two left over, but these were not im portant matters. Allen G. Fletcher called the newspapermen into his office the afternoon following adjournment and told them that he had pocket ve toed one hill and that he hail signed the rest. Oflicers do not feel that they ran go ahead with matters until they know whether the bills that have been signed since the adjournment are le gally signed. These include appropri ations, one of which is the budget for the biennial period, while two others are for support of government also. There were also many other impor tant acts. Conferences were held this morning among different attorneys in the matter. Some of the state officials talked with the executive department about the mutter. One attorney, who has been offered a judgeship, state dthis morning that the provisions of the constitution which say that bills not signed within five days shall become a law and in the same provision in which it is express ly stated that if they are not signed within-'thf4e days, then they do not become a law, hold that this provision pertains only to the governor's act while the legislature is in session and that it does not pertain to his signa ture of bills after the legislature has adjourned, but that he has a reasonable time in which to sign them. At the jjivernor's office it was stated this morning that all of the bills which the governor would sign would be i signed before to-niglit. I here was in timation that some misfit not get his signature. Governor nartne.s fold the commit tee on final adjournment (Jiat he was going to veto the campaign expense bill and that they mieht remain unMI to-day with that information before them. He gave his reasons, but the two branches decided to adjourn and it was done so fast that the secretary of the Senate and clerk of the House were unable to get their last bills into the governor's office so that some did not reach the office until the day following adjournment. Anyway there i. quite a flurry aliout the State House to-day on the matter. Property at Upper Graniteville De ttroyed Cause of Fire is a Mystery. A small engine house in Upper Gran iteville owned bv the L. L. Smith 4 Co. quarry firm was completely de stroyed by Are this morning about fi o'clock, the origin of which is as yet undetermined. No stove or heating ap paratus, except for the steam pipes which are connected from the boiler house, existed in the building and no electricity was attached to the struc ture, so the company is at a loss to de termine the cause of the fire, the steampipes being cold every night, aft er the supply from the boiler house is shut off. The loss is roughly estimated between fM.OOO and .ft,0O0, 'and is cov ered by a blanket insurance on all the company's property. i he lire was discovered by h. A. lackman, who was going from his home to the stables of Dr. E. H. Bai lev to feed and care for the horses. Mr. Jackman notified Dr. Bailey, who in turn summoned assistance from neighlKira and telephoned to members of the Smith firm in Barre. MAY RESTRICT FIREMEN TO CITY Barre Cit? .

Again Graniteville realized the neces sity of fire protection for had not the wind been favorable the cable-way tow er and another building below would have been , destroyed. The building. like all engine houses, had considerable oil aliout the machinery and small tools within. The building housed the ma chinery for a boom derrick, which hap pened to be hanging low and which es caped severe damage hy the low drop when the fire released the wooden blocks connected with the brakes. Only yesterday morning residents of Gran iteville witnessed a hise burn to the ground because of- no fire protection. The matttcr of permitting city fire men and fire fighting equipment to go outside the city limits was brought be-' fore the Barre city council lat night and. after some consideration, was re- A number of workmen at the quarr-ftlfe, ilt the fire (.ommlUee to report .ere notified and responded to give I r on. in oringing tne mailer up, Aiaer man Keast said it was not fair to the property owners of the city to lay them liable to damage, which might be averted by the retention of the firemen and equipment at home. He also said that if city equipment was not avail able for outside towns there would be more disposition in those towns to fur nish their own equipment. It waa stated further that not many years ago a Barre fireman wa injured during one of those out of town trips and ho was not compensated by the town in which the fire occurred; nor did the city pay him because the city attorney had ruled that the injury was not sustained while the fireman was in the performance of his duty to t'he city. Response to calls for assistance in Barre Town came under special discus sion when the statement was made that Barre Town had for three years refused to pay the city the latter's share of the church money division, the town's offi- ciaJs ending the negotiation by declar ing that if the city wishes its money it will have to collect. The city council did not consider it reasonable exchange of good offices for the town to refuse to pay this church money share and for the city to send its fire fighters and equipment out to assist the town with out any compensation, laying the city property ojien to destruction, the equip ment to damage and the firemen to in jury. Moreover, it was argued that the fires in adjoining towns have generally reached such a stage when the call has been put in to the Barre firemen that no considerable amount of assistance could be rendered by chemical appa ratus and also there are no hydrants in the towns for the use, of hose on a gravity system. It seemed to be the general opinion among the city council members that RED CROSS NURSE REPORTS On Her Activities in Barre Since Open ing of Her Work.
