THE VERMONT PHOENIX, BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1911.
NEW RAILROAD SURVEY
Boston & Maine Has Charter to
Is It a Step to Block Central Vermont?
Briefs Submitted to Public Service
Many rumors have been afloat this
week relative to the railroad situation,
but negotiations havo not reached a
stago where the commlttoo In chargo'for
the town are willing to make a state
ment, nlthough they continue to be hope
ful that arrangements will bo made
whereby the Iioston & Maine will build
on the Vermont side of the river. Men
moro or less Intimately connected with
railroad affairs (not members of the
committee or their counsel) say that the
awards on the bids for constructing the
C. V., line from Uelows Falls to
Windsor havo been held up a few days
and that the Grand Trunk Is very
desirous of crossing the Now Havon
tracks In building their Palmcr-l'rovl-dence
extension and they take this as
Indicating a possibility of a compromise
both at Providence and at Brattleboro.
The Boston & Maine has been given a
charter by the New Hampshire legis
lature for a double track lino from South
Vernon to AValpole and the road has
started engineers to work surveying for
the New Hampshire route.
Concerning this step the Springfield
Republican has stated editorially: "The
terms of the bill suggest the possibility
that the New Haven Interests may sell
the Vermont Valley to the Grand Trunk,
and cling to the New Hampshire side
of the river for their own continuous
trackago from tho Massachusetts bound
ary to White IUver Junction." The
railroad question has so many rami
fications that a schemo like that which
would save building an expensive bridge
here, might bo desirable, but It Is not
unreasonable to suppose that a charter
for the Walpolo route was secured to
prevent the Central Vermont from com
ing down on that side In order to reach
Brattleboro. It would bo an expensive
proposition for the Central Vermont to
build from Bellows Falls to this town
and swing away from tho river as Its
preliminary survey has contemplated, a
mile or more In some places. One of the
routes which the Central Vermont had
under consideration was west of Brattle
boro village, which would require ex
pensive work at West river, but It Is
understood that the plan has been
abandoned. Central Vermont surveyors
are now at work south from Athens and
Saxtons River with a view to connect
ing with tho West river line near
Townshend or Ncwfanc. The Boston &
Maine survey and estimates for a line
from South Vernon to this town by way
of Hinsdale, crossing the river here, are
ready for the contractors, but it is
understood that no award will be made
for a few days.
A hearing before the public service
commission on the petition of the town
to rescind or suspend Its order to the
Central Vermont to abolish the Bridge
street crossing and build an overhead
pass where tho present station Is, was
scheduled for Tuesday of this week, but
inasmuch as the Central Vermont had
raised a question as to tho right of the
commission to change an order once
made and Inasmuch as the case would
not bo heard on Its merits until after
that question was decided, counsel on
both sides agreed to submit printed briefs
to the commission covering the question
of Its jurisdiction, which was done. If
the commission decides that It has juris
diction the Centra! Vermont doubtless
will appeal to the supreme court, and if
it decides that It has not probably the
petitioners will go to tho supreme court.
It Is not anticipated, however, that much
delay would result In cither case.
Tho agreement for a suspension of the
hearing, on the filing of briefs was as
follows: "It Is agreed that the petition
ers shall file on the question of the au
thority of the commission to grant the
relief prayed for In the pending petition,
such' briefs to be mailed to each commis
sioner on April 4, 1911, and copy to
counsel for all parties. Petitioners may
each file brief within five days after re
ceiving petitioner's brief and any party
may file reply within three days after
receiving petitioner's briefs. The case,
so far as It relates to the authority of
the commission, shall then be considered
as submitted, except as the commission
may ask for oral arguments. When the
commission shall have passed upon the
question of their authority, they to fix
the date for such further hearing as may
bo required. Hearing appointed for
Brattleboro for April 4, 1911, is suspend
ed pending decision on tho question pre
sented by briefs."
Tho petitioner's brief Is a document of
about 50 pages and concludes as follows:
"Tho reasons why the commission
should have the right to rehear this mat
ter may be thus summarized:
"(a) The commission Is charged with
tho continuous duty of supervision, In
tho Interests of public safety, convenience
"(b) The history of legislation shows
that It Is the policy of tho state to give
tho commission ample power and author
ity to grant adequate relief In respect of
nil matters within Its Jurisdiction, under
any conditions calling for Its action.
"(c) The order In question was not
made by way of granting an Irrevocable
franchise to anybody, but solely in tho
public Interest and under the police pow
er. "(d) For the commission to tie Its
own hands, and to hold that an order of
this character cannot be reviewed by It,
no matter how impracticable changed
conditions may make it, would bo nul
lifying the plain Intent of the law, and a
virtual abdication of Its functions.
"It cannot ho that every order made
by tho commission, ami not appealed
from Is Intended to have the force of nb.
solute finality. Many cases can bo sup
posed where the order might be proper
enough when made, and at that time
open to no valid objection on appeal, but
where, owing to changed conditions, and
different requirements In tho way of
public service, tho literal enforcement of
tho order would be Impracticable or ab
solutely harmful. If It can be shown
that tho material Interests of tho town
of Brattleboro and of this entire section
of the state, are now In Jeopardy because
of this order, is this commission, on
purely technical ground, prepared to say
that It is powerless to intervene?"
The time for the submission of bids to
the Central Vermont engineering depart
ment for the construction of 25 miles of
railroad from Windsor to Bellows Falls
expired Saturday. Tho construction of tho
new line Is expected to bo completed by
next fall. Tho second link, 24 miles, con
necting Bellows Falls and Brattloboro,
will bo surveyed, located and ready for
tonders, it Is expected, in a few weeks.
Construction will not bo many weeks be
hind that on tho piece to the north.
It Is known that at least half a dozen
of tho largest contractors of tho Middle
West hnve bids In on the work in tho
Connecticut river valley, coming from
Chicago, Minneapolis and other cities.
Tho fact that railroads In tho West have
Inrgely halted their plans for extensions,
owing to tho freight rates decision and
present unfavorable business outlook,
places nn unusual number of large Wes
tern contracting firms In a situation to
build. Tho company has estimates of its
own nnd will decldo whothor to contract
tho work or do it Itself, according to tho
nature of tho tonders.
Tho Grand Trunk has prepared to
mako Brattleboro a division terminal of
lmportanco In connection with the de
velopment of the line Into Providence.
Brattleboro Is 225 miles this sldo of Mont,
real and will be about 132 miles from
Providence by tho now lino. Tho lino
from Providence to Montreal will bo
about 387 miles. Tho cholco of a divi
sional point nt Brattloboro might lndlcnto
a thrcc-dlvlslon plan for freight service.
Brattleboro Is about one-third and
Montpellcr Junction about two-thirds of
tho way from Providence to Montreal.
Tho hnlf-way point between tho two
c!tlc3 Is practically Whlto River Junction,
about 190 miles from cither terminus a
distance held by somo roads to bo nbout
tho proper mileage for through passenger
crows on long lines.

SARAH MARIA TYLER.
By the death of Miss Sarah Maria
Tyler, SO, which took place Friday morn
ing, March 31, this community has lost a
highly esteemed resident. She was the
daughter of Ephralm and Mary Blssell
Tyler, was born In Wilmington Feb. 12,
1831, went to Guilford with her fnther's
family in 1840, and for more than 70
years had made her homo on the farm In
Guilford where her brother now lives.
Sho nttended school In the "Gregory
schoolhouse"' near her home, and wns
always in after life fond of recounting
tho names and characteristics of her
various teachers ami schoolmates. She
reeelved a good academical education nt
Brattloboro academy when that Institu
tion was at the height of Its prosperity
with Roswell Harris as Its principal.
After leaving the academy she was for
several years a successful teacher of dis
trict schools In her own and other towns
In the county, and even to her old age
she often was delighted to meet men and
women who had attended her schools In
In later years duty to her parents and
other members of the family required
her to remain at home, and for a long
period of time, nnd until her health failed,
her llfo was one of faithful, loving service
to others; in return she received tho tcn
derest care In her old age. Books were a
great resource to her at all times. She
loved tho beautiful hills that surrounded
her home, the meadows and tho singing
brooks, and she wns a student nnd In
tense lover of birds and flowers. She
had many devoted friends hero In Brat
tleboro, and in Charlemont, Mass., whero
she spent much of her time for several

tokens of remembrance.
Miss Tyler was tho oldest member of
the Congregational church In Guilford
and wns greatly Interested In Its welfare.
The ISrgo attendance at the service In
the church Monday afternoon and the
numerous floral offerings were evidence
of the regard of our people for her. The
text of Rev. Mr. Cornell's brief, but beau
tiful tribute, was very appropriate: "She
hath dono what sho could."

A. L. Tyler of Charlemont, Mnss., J. M,
Tyler of Brattleboro and W. II. Tyler
James A. Pollard of Chester, 9S years

A CURE "FOR" ALL.
Not a Patent Curealt, Nor a Modern
Miracle, but Simply a Rational Cure
It la hard to tell Just why SB-AVER'S
LAXATrVE TONIC TABLETS have be
come so popular with most people, but
considering tho short tlmo they have
been advertised, tho demand for them
ha been cause for wonder. They aro
no different In nppearanco from other
laxative tablets, but they really must
Iosscss unusual merits, for from our
own personal observation we know that
they always do Just what is expected of
them. Their action upon the skin and
complexion Is remarkable, for the prin
cipal ingredients In them Is extract of
dandelion and your own doctor will tell
you that dandelion is ono of tho greatest
skin alteratives known to tho profession.
If your bowels are Inactive, your skin
sallow, your tonguo coated and if you aro
troubled with pimples or bilious spells, a
25 cont box of BEAVER'S LAXATIVE
TONIC TABLETS will clear up your
complexion, tone up tho llvar, encourage
the action of your bowels and mako you
feel well again or Wilfred F, Root will
gladly pay you back your money.
