Golf was supposed to b, a Scotch jtiau't came but when an Italian named Sara'zen eteps in and take the 'American open championship it ia time to revise one's viewpoint somewhat. The wrecking of , Maine Central train at East St. Johnsbury had marry of the terrifying features of occur rences of that nature but few of the terrible features. The result, on the whole, can be considered nothing else than fortunate, in view of the fact that-eijcty-flve passengers were being tarried and that none of them was hurt. News that Faderewski is planning to forsake politics for his old fort, the piano, reads as a natural event There is somewhat strong belief that Faderewski is more effecyve at the piano than at the game of politics, national find international, although there is no disposition, to minimize the importance of the work which he did for his native country, Poland, during the reformation period after the World war. That latter work is com pleted in 'so far as Faderewski is able to complete it, according to general opinion, and there is yet a chance for him to return to his real life work, music. choice for the Vermont governorship evidently, in the hope and th! belief that a wider range for choice than ut present made possible would be devel oped, that is, that some person of persons of wider experience and more uutstandinir qualifications tvould be drafted for the Rcpubljcai nomination. But the Randolph Herald and Xev has finally come to the 'conclusion that there will be no new candidates for the nomination and has placed its fhoice on Redfield Proctor of Proctor while at the same time 'ot decrying the merits of Lieut-Gov. Abram V. Foote, whom we highly regard person ally." Repeated openings have been made by the newspapert for this or that . person to become a candidate through the "mentioning" process, but thus far none of the persons men jtioned has seen his way clear to enter the contest. Therefore, the conviction is becoming soliddified that Vermont will be called upon to make a choice be tween the two candidates avowedly in the field, as the Randolph contem porary has done. Nevertheless, many of the newspapers will still be inclined to hold off their editorial support in the hope of some other opening. Another mournful reminder comes from Middlebury that the place to stand while cleaning the cutter on a mowing machine, to which horses are . Attached, is not in front of the cutter. TVs latest one to try the doubtful ex periment , is now minus thres fingers on his left hand, had his right , arm badly mangled and nearly had one of his legs cut off at the nnkle. Few experienced farmers would put them selves in such a position of jeopardy and, having due regard for their own safety, they ought to warn the boys and girls who may come to work or play on their farms. Stand behind tVe cutter bar when horses are hitched to the machine. That is the only safe course to pursue. Charlet Webb of Washington and E. B. Webb of St. Albans are broth ers. There would be no special sig nificance in that statement were it not for the fact that Charles Webb ia private secretary to Senator William P. Dillingham in Washington and . B Webbwas in charge of the U. 5. cus toms squad, which held up Senator Dil lingham, along with other, on the Waterbury-Montpelier road last week in the course of their official duties earching for smuggled liquor. Of course, the Dillingham hold-up was soon explained and matters straight ened out. Apparently E. B. (Ted) Webb carries the eame conviction in regard to fidelity to duty which his older brother, Charles, is possessed of an admirable quality, by the way. The customs man Webb has been do ing some very active work in aiding the United States government toward the enforcement of the law and he probably was following instructions closely when he caused the Dillingham party to halt. Vermont newspapers, as a rule, have been slow to make known their A CASH BALANCE FOR VERMONT. The fact that State Auditor Ben Gates turned out to be a poor prophet on state balances and that there will be a cash balance instead of a deficit on June 30, 1923 (according to pres ent indicated, does not,' of course, affect the auditor's standing as a watchdog of the Vermont stace finances As a matter of fact, Auditor Gates' dire prediction, uttered six montliiAgo, to the effect that Vermont .was going to run far behind on her finances was probably just the thing that was need ed to keep down the expenditures, for we have his own assertion that the expenditures during the last six months have not run as high as was anticipated, while, on the other hand, the receipts were more than had been figured on. When the ordinarily pru dent person learns that his resources are likely to .be more than exhausted before the end of any given period, he is likely to retrench on some par ticulars. No doubt a similar state of mind affects a commonwealth to a certain degree and there is a tendency on the part of some officials at least to cut uown the expenditures of their departments as far as is consistent with good administration. State Au ditor Gates' prediction of six months ago certainly had a convincing effect on the minds of the public and that ef fect was reflected in public sentiment as voiced by the press and through the press. It may lave had its influ ence in reducing state expeditures. Therefore, Auditor Gates solemn warning of six months ago had its im press on financial affairs of the state, For it, the state has to thank the audi tor, albeit admitting that Mr. Gates was a poor prophet on the face of hings. However, it should be borne in mind by all people that the expected cash balance instead of a sixeabla deficit does not warrant any lavish expend ture of money over and above that mapped out.

The Central Vermont railroad, which ia in New England but not of it, is made the subject of a facetious obser vation by the Burlington (Vt.) News, which says: Speaking of the proposed consolida tion of New England railroads we are waiting with large expectation for the great contortion act of the Cana dian government's Grand Trunk and Central Vermont railways swallowing the other New England linea or vice versa. The vice - versa is not humornuslv. improbable, or. perhaps, improbable at all. Within a month the lieutenant governor of New Brunswick, William ; Pugsley, has demanded that the Lana-1 dian government sell its American lines so that Canadian development of an American port should cease. With the maritime provinces looking upon Portland as a rival to their own ports, this sentiment is likely to become stronger, and to have support else where. The reason why Trof. Ripley did not include the Grand Trunk and Central Vermont in his proposed comprehen sive New England system was partly because of their foreign ownership and partly because he regarded their in dependent control as essential to the preservation of competition in New Eneland. At one time during federal control it was proposed to have the Central Vermont south of White River Junction divided for operating pur poses and assigned to the Boston & Maine and the New Haven.

American industry is confronted with one of the most serious problem of the reconstruction period in the growing shortsge of labor, reports of which ara multiplying. As mines, factories anil steel works attain a higher degree of operations the lack of manpower prom ises to loom up as a restrictive influ ence upon production. What is the solution! in former years the answer would have own sup plied by a great influx of immigration from abroad. Before the World war years of depression in this country caused immigration to decline out con sequent revivals always stimulated the movement afresh. No such relief is possible now. It is prohibited by the Johnson law which limits the quota of immigration from any country in a sin gle year to three per cent of tho pop ulation of that nationality in the Unit ed States, according to the 1010 census. Women are included. Last year the to tal quota waa 3,5,000 and this year it has been fixed at 357.000. The present monthly rate of gain in the population from alien migration is about 7,000. Before the war the aver age monthly net excess of immigration over emigration ranged from i.i,0(XI to 70,000. Between 1005 and 1911, immi gration exceeded 1,000,000 in six years. The normal increase in American pop ulation ia inadequate to make ip the loss from immigration. Neither is the new generation of Americans willing to perform the manual tasks so essential to basic industries. Moreover the nia jority of alien now arrfcing in unfitted by training or temperament for com mon labor. Not only are fewer com mon laborers Arriving but more an leaving. Last year, 3,000 more Italians left this emintry than arrived. The proTilem can only be partially solved by the development of Uoor -saving machinery. The situation cri aloud for a rational change in the gov ernment's immigration policy, if indus try is not to be hobbled and production restrained. It challenges the bt thought of the industrial leaders of the country. Iron Trade Review. Capital Surplus and Un divided Profits, $220,000 Pays 4 P. C. on Savings Deposits 2 P.
