his advocacy of peace at any price,
for his contemptuous allusions to the
flag, for the exemption of his son from
niii.tary service on tne sole ground
that he will blindly support the presi-
' dent. The president, is quite ready to
admit that Republicans are loyal
enough to fight anil die, as they are
doing by the thousands; loyal enough
to take up great loans and pay enor
mous taxes; loyal enough to furnish
important men at no salary on some
of the great war boards in Washing
ton. Uut they are not loyal enough,
in the president's opinion, to be trust-
! ed with any share in the government
of the country or legislation for it.
"If the Republican party controls
the House we can point out some of
the things they will do. They will
replace Mr. Dent of Alabama at the
. j head of the Military Affairs Commit
! tee with Mr. Julius Kahn, to whom the
administration was obliged to turn
I for assistance to take charge of and
! carry the first draft bill against Mr.
Dent's opposition. They will put a
Republican at the head of the Ways
and Means Committee, as leader of
the House, instead of Mr. Kitchin of
- North Carolina, who voted against
the war. They will give the country
a seaker wno did not oppose and
would never oppose a draft bill and
would never say as tpeaK.or uiarK am
that 'there is precious little difference
between a conscript and a convict.'
"Although the Republicans of the
House are in the minority, they cast
more actual votes on Beven great war
measures than the Democratic major-
cord of the Senate? On the fifty-one
roll calls on war measures between
April C, 1!)17, and the 29th of May,
1U1S, the votes cast by Republicans
in favor of such measures were 72
per cent., while only 67 per c ent of
the votes cast on the Democratic
side were in favor of such measures.

measures. Does that record look as

United States Completes 'test of
Daylight Saving,.
During One Hour Beginning at Two
O'clock, A. M., There Will Be No
Train Service.
Washington, Oct. 20. At ;o
o'clock tomorrow morning the United
States will complete its test of day
light savins. At that hour the clocks
of the naval observatory here and
other agencies by which time is regu
lated will be stopped one hour. At
the same, time trains on all the rail
roads of the country will stop by or
der of Director General McAdoo. They
will remain motionless for an hour
and then proceed.
It is the general opinion in cities
and larxer towns that the scheme is
said to have been very successful.
War gardens have profited by the ex
tra amount of care made possible
from those who otherwise could not
have been able to work garden plots
it various distances from their homes.
Without the extra time these plots
would have grown up in weeds. Be
sides the greater amount of food rais
ed the physical work done by office em
ployes and others who work indoors
has been a benefit.
In the agricultural communities it
has made but little difference as the
average farmer "goes by the sun"
rather than by the clock, anyway.
German Newspapers So View
son's Latest Note.
Amsterdam. Oct. 2C Although the
German newspapers are not satisfied
with President Wilson's latest note,
many of them say it means progress
towards peace. This feeling was re
sected in the operations yesterday on
the llerlin stock exchange in the ad
vance in prices.
ijubllcun party in Congress has sup
ported the administration policies
ilnce the war with a unanimity ana an
ibsence of criticism unprecedented in
party history.
There are some domestic ques
tions where we should undoubtedly
liffer from the course pursued by the
administration. We should not, for
example, fix a price on the farmer's
-heat and leave the planters cotton
jntouched. Another domestic ques
tion in which the Republican party
elieves thoroughly Is economic pre
paration for the coming of peace, and
hey are clearly of the opinion that
he Congress of the United Mates
should not be excluded from that
;reat task.
This is not tho president s person-
il war. This is not the war of Con
rress. It is not the war of the
Democratic or the Republican party.
t is the war of the American people,
t is more. It is the war of the
Jnlted States, of the allied powers, of
he civilized world against barbarism
)f Germany. In this great burden and
esponsibility, tho Republican party
epresenting more than half the
jllizensltip of the country, demands
ta rightful Bhare.
."If the Republican party is Intrust
)d with power in either or both hous
;s they will do everything possible to
Irive forward the war and husten the
lay of victory. Tho president speaks
if the necessity of telling the , plain
ruth. That the Republican party in
:ontrol of Congress would do, for they
lave no friends to shield. And they
ft'lll do more, they will give all the
noney to the last dollar necessary to
mstaln our armies und our fleets, but
hey will check the wusto now going
in of tho money given by the most
senerous 'people on tho face of tho
"The president speaks of tho effect
f the election abroad. lie says that
.hero they understand tho meaning of
jleetions. They do, nnd they will
mow that If tho Republicans have a
naor;ty in Congress the war will be
pressed with greater vigor than ever
before. Thoy are quito aware that
he power of the Senate Is equal to
hat of the president In tho consum
nation of peace by treaty. They will
enow that the Republican party
itanils for a victorious peace and tho
overthrow of Prusslun militarism.
That knowledge will not depress
iie spirit of our allies or encourage
he government of Germany.
"The Republican party believes
hat t ho question of surrender should
'ie left to Marshal Foch, to the goner
lis, and to the armies in the Held.
When they report that O crinany has
:ald down her arms, the United
States and tho allies should then im
oose their terms. Will that know
lodge ciiuso dejection to those who
ire lighting with us? All tho world
knows that the Republican party Is
opposed to n egotiatlons nnd d Iscus-

North Adams Couple Marred by Rev.

Mr. and Mrs. Uarry A. Duffy of

Albee. The North Adams Herald has
the following account of their wed
ding. -
Miss Katherino M. Field, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. James 11. Field,
of 309 Eagle street, was married Mon
day morning to Harry A. Duffy, son

formed at the Methodist parsonage at
9 by Rev. W. H. Hammersley. The
young couple was attended by Miss
Helen Duffy, sister of tho bride, and
Mrs. Robert Cunningham, the groom's
aunt. The bride wore a traveling suit

Idle Phonograph Records
Boys at the Front.
Music is one of the factors that Is
helping to win the war. There is no
doubt about it. That intangible some
thing called "morale" must be stimu
lated and maintained at the highest
pitch, and music contributes more
toward that end than canned beef.
In every home where there is a
phonograph, a number of records are
idle. Perhaps they are not the latest,
or perhaps tho owners are just tired
of them. In any case, these are "slac
ker" records that our boys at the
front need. And thev need them now.
Records-for-tlghters" week extends
from October 2fith to November 2nd.
Help make it a great success for Ben
nington and vicinity by giving gener
ously from your collection of records
or by buying new ones in case you
have no phonograph.
