DUTY OF VOTING IS MOST IMPORTANT Declared President Harding Who Tells of Need of Stirring Up ..Voters. Washington, I). C, Sept. 28. There is no more important duty for the citi zen "than this of voting on the one day in tV year when his vote means some thing," President Harding wrote to day in replying to a letter from Charles S. Stoler of the Alexandria, Va.," Republican club, in which the president was asked for an expression on "The Duties of a Citizen." Citing as an example of the laxity of voters in casting their ballots the last election for governor of Virginia, when only 8!,000 votes were cast while in 11)20 the'total with women voting rose to but 231,000 out of 4 "total pos sible qualified vote of about 900,000," the president wrote; "Quite regardless of effect on the fortunes of particular political parties, I am impressed there is need partic ularly for an appeal to voters to per form' their duty at the ballot box on election day. If the result of a full vote in Virginia or any other state should prove disastrous to the party of which you or I chance to be a mem ber, we would at least know that we had heard the voice of the, people and would be more ready to acquiesce in their decision. There is no more impor tant duty for the citizen than this of voting on the day in the yearwhen his vote means something. "Jf you can succeed in securing in Virginia this fall the largest vote the state ever cast, I will personally feci that you have accoirlished a notable civic advantage, quite regardless of the political result. "I think it will not be improper for me to add that I shall have like your self, no fear of the political result, if an expression can be secured."

He said he was afraid of Twitchell and consented to the plan, going to the room of the woodsman in a camp near by, Saturday "night. Campbell was aroused from sleep by the simultaneous reports of a ri fle and revolver and asked what all the noise was about. The shots went wild and-lodged in the wall. Then Twitchell, is is alleged, shot him through the head with the rifle. McDonald is said to have refused to take any part of the $34 though Twitchell is allegod to have oflered to divide it. The body was hauled away in cart that night, and the two men returned to the camp Sunday morning, the offi cers said McDonald told them, and re moved evidences of the orinie. VERMONT ENGINEERS.

The Ihree ban dits pounded Mr. Rothnie so badly that he was forced to lay off work for I" day. A clever piece of police work resulted in the immediate cap ture of the robbers and the recovery of Mr. Rothnic's valuables. Mr. Rothnie came to Barre about 10 years aj;o and worked at his trade of stonecutter at the Harrison Granite Co. for aliout seven year. He was a member of the Order of Scottish Clans and the Red Men.

Ho was walking through the heart of the city and was passing "an alley situated within one block of the central police station, when he was jumped by three men. lie says now, that he doesn't rememler anything after looking at his watch until he found himself in the police station St midnight, after having been taken to the hospital and treated. The trip to the"hopital, he said, was a blank to him. The three men evidently carried him into the alley and left him there after robbing him" for that was where he was found. Patrolman Adrian Beau champ of the Detroit police was pass ing, off duty, when he saw the thre men dart out ,of the alley and run itp the street. He gave chase and csitght all three and took them to the sta tion. Scrgt. William Hayes directed the officer to return to the alley and look for a possible victim, and Beau champ found Mr. Rothnie.

PRICE, TWQ CENTS. v NO CHANGE ON - FRANCHISE Barre City Council Voted to Lay Matter on the V Table MONTPELIER VOT 3 TURN IT J VN Or Put the Quest Up to City Cou $ i Again Slumber came to the petition of the ' receivership of the street railway com pany for radical changes in the fran chise last night, when the city council unanimously voted to table the matter. The company had requested that the franchise be amended in such a manner that the Washington -street line might be abandoned, the fare increased to eight cents and workingmen's tickets to five cents, cars run not oftener than hourly and the railway released from any obligation to regrade between its rails when the city should put in per manent paving in any street occupied by the tracks. Mayor Langley told the councillors that Receiver H. J. Volholm had on Saturday signed the communication re ceived by the council at its last meet ing from II. C. Shurtleff, thereby mak ing the letter official. Mr. Shurtleff had neglected to append his title of coun sel to tbe receiver pf the road or to embody in the letter "anything which would 'indicate- that it had been com posed at the direction of Mr. Volholm. In order to amend the franchise, it was brought out, it would be necessary to call a city meeting and the earliest possible date, at which the meeting eould be held would come after the next hearing on the receivership before Chancellor S. C. Wilson Oct. 8. A mo tion was made to table the petition aud the councillors sang the lullaby. The report of City Engineer Sydney L. Ruggles on the condition of the bridges 'in the city i was read and showed that the Blackwell street struc ture ia in dangerous condition and in need of immediate extensive repairs. According to the report, the last paint was put on the girders over the rust and rusting has been going on since under the paint. Most of the parts are rusted badly at the street level, accord ing to the reporF, and one channel of the northeast end post is rusted en tirely through. The sidewalk planking and the stringers are dry -rotted, the? report said. All other bridges are in good condition requiring only minor re-. pairs stich as replanking, scraping, painting, etc. ' In view of the recent disaster In Chester, 'Pa., the sidewalks of the. Prospect and Blackwell street bridges shoulcfbe strengthened, the city engi neer declared. The council accepted the report and ordered the recommenda tions carried out under the supervision of the street committee. Permits were granted to Mrs. Mary Miles to build a sleeping porch on the house at 33 Merchant street, to Arthur Cole to erect a garage on a vacant lot ofT Short street, to Mrs. Cora. Bates to build a garage at IS Sheridan street, to Robert Inglis to build a garage at 21 East street and to Calder & Rich ardson Co to erect two wood-shed ad ditions at Hill's crossing. A letter was read from Attorney Al land G. Fay as counsel for Mrs. Calista A. Smith ordering the city of Barre, or anyone in the nana? of the city, to refrain from taking sand or gravel from the so-called Jaij branch adjoin ing Mrs. Smith's property on Washing ton street. The letter claimed the re movals of sand snd gravel from the place caused Mrs. Smith's land to cave in. It also ordered that an accounting of every load already tsken from the place be submitted to Mr. Fay and pavment made for the same. Alderman Ke'ast told the council that the gravel taken came from the bed of the dam at Phelps' mills and that the city had not encroached on Mrs. Smith's prop erty. The matter was, therefore, or- . dcred laid on the table. The following bills were ordered paid: Payroll city clerk's office, $111 .07; payroll streat departwaent, $671 .tU: payroll engineering department, $28.fti; payroll fire department, $201 .55; pa v rol I water department, $140-p.-,; C.
