TUFTS REMOVED FROM OFFICE 'FOR THE PUBLIC GOOD Sensational Order In the Case of Prosecuting Of ficer of Middlesex Co., j Mass., Was Made By the ! Supreme Court of That State . . ATTY. GEN'L ALLEN'S CHARGES BASIS FOR THE RULING The Latter Official Alleged Mnltinlp Instances of Misuse By Tufts of the Office He Held for Per ' sonal Gain Boston, Oct 1. The supreme court f Massachusetts to-day announced the removal from oflice of Nathan A. Tufts, district attorney of Middlesex county. The finding, it was stated, was "for the public good." ; The court's ruling was on charges brought by Attorney General J. Wei ton Allen, alleging multiple instances of misuse of his office by the district attorney for his personal gain or in terest. Attorney General Allen, in petition ing the supreme court for the removal of TufU, cited more than thirty in stances of action or inaction by the district attorney to support charges of "malfeasance, misfeasance, and non feasance in office." The most sensational of these spe cific charges had to do with the set tlement of litigation growing out of a mjdnigM party in 1917 at Mishawum Manor, a Woburn road house conduct ed by a woman known as "Brownie" Kennedy. Several prominent; ivew York motion picture producers were involved. The attorney general charged 4 Hat-Tufts was concerned in aeonspi-l jacy by which they were induced to j ray approximately $100,000 to Daniel H. Coakley and other attorneys under threat of prosecution. SEVERAL BIG COLLEGES OPEN THEIR SEASON Princeton And Cornell Make Their De but on Diamond To day. New York, Oct. 1.

ST. ALBANS TOOK DISCOUNT To Settle the Fonda Tax Case Long in Litigation. St. Albans, Oct. L It is understood on good authority that the city of St. Albana settled its case with the heirs of the W. B. Fonda estate for a sum much less than that awarded the city by the supreme court of Vermont in its decision the early part of this year. The award of the supreme court amounted to approximately $10,000, covering taxes for a period of four years. 1318, l'.)l!, 1020 and 1021. It is said that the. city accepted $17,H00 to settle the rase. .Thia cae ha attracted srreat deal of attention in Vermont because of the principle which it involved and also be cause f the prominence of those con cerned in it. The case arose out of dif ficulties between the city of St. Al bans and the heirs of W. B. Fonda as to payment of taxes on the estate. W. B. Fonda died during the early part of 1017, leaving an estate the val ue of which was not definitely known at the time. Taxes on something like $50,000 had been paid to the city for the estate and the same arrangement held for 1917. Before the taxes for 1018 came due, however, there had been a decree of distribution to the heirs re vealing the fact that the estate amounted to something like three quarters of a million dollars. But when the city attempted to col lect taxes on thia amount, the heirs made the claim that it was no longer taxable in the city of St. Albans as it had been transferred to the Old Colony Trust Co. of Boston as a trust fund, of which the heirs were to receive the in terest. Litigation followed and the city got a verdict in the Franklin county court. It then went to the supreme court of Vermont and was argued in October, 1020, and ,a decision for the city ren dered in January, 1021. It was under stood that the rase would be taken to the I'nited States supreme court, but it never got that far.

Was Seen By Many People at Eastern States Fair. The everlasfing product of the Barre quarries had the best bost in several years when the pieces which were tak en down to Springfiejd. Mass., last month and placed on exhibition in the Eastern States exhibition show were inspected by over 2.10,000 people. This number in itself is immense, and the advertising value is even greater when it is taken into consideration that these peojJe not only came from all parts of New England but from all the states east of Chicago, and that not only the tradespeople and the la borers attended, but also the largest of the manufacturers and producers. Barre was the only granite center that was represented so she bsd the whole field t-n herself. The specimens consisted of two monuments of dark granite, both of which were polished; the Vermont state seal in light gran ite: a bunch of lilies finelv carved from liiiht stone, and two vases about 16 or IS inches high, both of dark granite an5 exiiuisitelv polished and cut. The monuments themselves were in two parts, thus making four exhibitions in those piece. Ail this work was put out at the ex pense of the Granite Manufacturers' association of Barre, and nnder their direction. The different pieces of art were cut from standard stock and are a fine example of nbat it is possible for Barre workers to do in that line. Work was performed during the sum mer.

Just think of the possibilities suggested by that namel Everybody gets into a fix sometime or other and lots of us get into them mighty often. Also some of us will swear there is no fix more "regular" than some of those we've been in but let's not do it for we'd be dead wrong. The boys of Barre post. No. 10, Amer ican Legion, intend to prove that next Tuesday and Wednesday pights at the opera house. It'll be the third annual show staged bv the veteranB and the title is "A Regular Fix." We've all simply got to take in the show because the rehearsals look so good. The committee in charge have neglected to include rest periods for aching sides and as a consequence those who attend are promised one continual laugh from the rise of the curtain to its fall. Somehow or other these World war lads seem to have a sense of hu- , mor sharpened to a hair-splitting edge. There was miglitv little to fill them with glee in the mud of the trenches and the vin blanc "parlors" of F'rance and as a consequence every man rapid ly became a keen hunter for fun. Tho bright siU of everything was dug out and as a consequence the veterans practically without exception now have the faculty of seeing the fun in every thing. Therefore what must it be when a crowd of them get together with fun already arranged "A Regular Fix" will show. Alex, fitraiton, who made a big hit with last veur's play, will aoi be. in the cast this year but will hare an even better opportunity to exploit his inimitable joy powers in a specialty act. He will sing comic tongs and oth erwise entertain. The play is now rapiJ'y reaching perfection nd only a few more finish ing touches remain to be applied. The members of the cast go about the thing for all the world lite veteran foot light performers and there's none of tha sniatenr or stiff nets to the thing. Tha tickets hsve already been put out nd are being distributed by members of the post. Tiikets wiil go on sale at the box oflice in the opera house this after noon at 2 o'clock.
