Appeal to class defeated the propo
sition to pay a pension to Mrs. Stella S.
Elmer In a special meeting of tlio Incor
porated school district In tho high
Bchool room Tuesday evening, In prob
ably tho largest sohool meeting ever held
In tho district, moro than 335 persons
being present, Solon A. Richmond di
rected remarks to tho wago earners as a
clasa and urged them not to make of It
self a pension bureau and told them that
pensions granted to teachers would be
used as n hommar by which wages
would be hammered down. Without
making any distinction between those
who simply work for wnges and those
who perform a public service ho asked
It any of tho working peoplo of Brat
tleboro wanted pension, and ho dwelt
on the subject of taxation and Increased
Tho voto on tho iiuestion was 225 no
and 110 yes, the negative sldo winning
by more than two to one. An nrtlclc In
the warrant for the regular meeting two
weeks earlier was passed over by a
small voto and tho friends of the meas
ure felt that the meeting did not repre
sent the real sentiment of the district.
They therefore called a spocial meeting
to act on tho article again. As pre
viously stated, Mrs. Elmer has taught
over 35 years and is eligible for a pen
sion of half her salary, which would
amount to $123 a year. It was her de
sire to retire on the panslon and to that
end she had tendered br resignation,
but It has not heap, accepted and she
probably will reauni to school the com
When Dr. Henry D. Holton, moder
ator, called the meeting to order It
could be seen plainly that tho article
would have hard sledding, tho element
of which Mr. Richmond posed as a lead
er being present In large numbers. Prob
ably more than 100 were thero who
never before saw the Inside of the bund
ling. Clerk W. R. Smith read tho war
rant and Immediately Col. J. Gray Es
' tey offered a resolution to pay Mrs. El-
mer a pension of ?425 a year. Ho spoke
pt her many years of faithful public
service and said our debt to her was
more than we could pay. Mr. Richmond minutes.
then arose and congratulated tho dis
trict because a sufficient number were
present to make the meeting represen
tative. He referred to tho complaint
that teachers are underpaid and said tho
supply exceeded the demand. 'There is
moro money in it for them," he said,

Bid DERRICK AT STATION FELL.
Guy Wire May Have Been Cut by Dis
charged Italian Estey Plant Forced to
Return to Steam Power.
The breaking of a guy wire on tho
derrick on tho Icdgo opposite- tho rail
road station Monday morning about 8
o'clock stopped trafllo on tho Brattlo
boro street railway lino until after 3
o'clock, caused the Estey Organ plant
to bo shut down sovcral hours and blew
out a transformer In the power station
at tho Vernon dam. Tho workmen en
gaged on the Job on the ledgo hnd been
at work about an hour nnd wero trying
to dlslodgo a heavy piece of stono with
the aid of tho derrick. Without warn
ing ono of tho. guy wires broko nnd ex
erted an extra strain on the others nnd
they snapped ono by one. Somo of them
crossed the power wires from the Ver
non dam and tho short circuit on tho
lino burned out the smallest of tho
transformers in tho power station. Tho
Estey organ shops receive their power
from this transformer and the wheels
stopped moving there, the street cars
Mopped nnd tho employes of tho Twin
State Gas & Electric company and tho
Connecticut River Tower company be
gan to hustle around to start things
Thero was enough water In West river
to allow tho power station In Dummers
ton to generate enough current to run
the electric cars and supply electric
light servlco to tho subscribers here,
but not enough to supply power at the
organ shops. When it was learned
there that no power would be available
for several hours llres wero built under
tho boilers and enough steam mado to
run a part of the machines, but not all
of the plant could bo operated and some
of tho men went homo. About 3 o'clock
tho electric cars began running trips on
schedule time. The derrick was not put
in position until Tuesday and tho men
in cliargo found it difficult to get it
raised. None of tho laborers wero in
the path of tho derrick when It fell and
nobody was Injured, but whllo It was
being rained the Italians kept watch of
tho tail polo nnd wero prepared to run
at tho least sign of danger.
It is said that G. M. Norbert and E.
G'. Howell, who have charge of tho work
on the ledge, have received letters from
discharged Italians threatening to do
damage at tho sceno of operations on
the ledge, nnd It is thought that between-Saturday
night and Monday morn
ing a discharged Italian may have gone
to tho ledgo and cut a guy wire partly
In two, thus weakening it and causing
It to break when a heavy strain was
put upon It. When tho guy wires fell
across the electric wires there was a
display of electricity that lasted several

Elmer a pension. "If you turn it down

With all tho Interest Uint is being

section of thoso mountains, away from

Burlington, to which comparatively few
travelers ever get avo thoso having

south from Massachusetts at tho Hoosac
Tunnel's mouth, thero penetrated somo
years ago a llttlo railway to Readsboro,
extended In these later days to Wil

tho cliffs and the river dispute tho right
of way, and a stono dropped from Pulpit
