THE BARRE 7 RAILROADS CANNOT t RENT AS TRADE BIDS Must Charge Same Rentals as Private Owners Would Charge. Washington, D.-C, Nov. 6. Rcl roads which lease land along their right of way to private users must charge rentals equal-to the sums which pri vate owners would charge for similar property, or the transactions hereafter will be considered by the interstate commerce commission as a form of re bating in violation of law. ' Concluding on investigation insti tuted by itself in 1917, into railroad practices in renting property in New York City, Fresno, Cal., and Spoknna, Wash., the commission held to-day that in some cases the fixing of a low rental charge in leases of lands to larpe shippers had been "in practical effect" a reduction of transportation charges amounting to a refund. The commission Cased its conclusion chiefly upon facts brought out by the investigation of conditions at Spokane, Wash., where the investigators found that a city had practically grown1 lip around the itrht of way of the north ern Pacific, making the lease privileges on the land of railroads as well as oth ers very valuable. Besides instructing the railroads hereafter to fix rentals on the actual basis of the value of the land rented, the commission also forbade inclusion in the leases of provisions requiring the shipper tenant to route traffic over the railroad renting the land. t .

Enthusiasm - The Vermont general election will be held to-morrow in simultaneous aetion with' most of the other states f the union, as it is an "oir year" in national politics . and as there has been little activity on the part of candidates or their supporters except in scattered instances, the vote cast ia expected to be rather small, as compared with the total number of registered voters. Two years ago, during the presi dential year and under the impetus of the added votes of the women, a total of 86,762 votes were cast, in contrast to a normal "presidential year" vote of somewhat larger than 60,000. Thsre beiug no national election (aside from congressional) this year and there hav ing been marked apathy among the voter all through the pre-election pe riod, it would not be surprising if there DlfUUlU UV a. lulling Ml. ll .

Coming down to the county elections there are several sharp fights " 'V' ous parts of the state which are likely to make the day somewhat interesting. In Washington county it is practically conceded bv all that the Republican ticket will be elected, with the possible exception of sheriff. The sheriff contest is an echo of the primary, in which Herbert J. Waytij of Barfe defeated George C, GramllieM of Fav-toa and Charles A. !mith of Montpelier for the Republican nomina tion. The vote between the two firs named candidates was very close. The nsme of Mr. Grandfield does not ap pear on the official ballot but it wan announced by him m short time a?. that he would go into the election m a -sticker" contest- It is in the hone splitting the Republican vote badly that the Democrats are trying to dne a wedge into a solid Republican noun ty The Democratic nominee for sher.f is George F.
