Ex-Oov. Long of Massachusetts, In a
recent letter to Zlon's Herald, shows
that no administration has been so pro
lific in constructive legislation, urged
by the President, ns the Taft adminis
tration. It has been marked by wise
provision for pure food, for the protec
tion of railroad employes and for safe
guards for miners, nd for children In
factories. Never has the agricultural
department been more active for the
benefit of the farmer. The Interstate
commerce commission has been strik
ingly earnest and efficient for the regu
lation of railroad rates and In giving
equality of treatment for all shippers.
Postal savings banks have been estab
lished for the convenience of the people
at large and plans have been made for
inaugurating the parcels post service.
The anti-trust laws have been en
forced more vigorously than ever be
fore. Action has been taken for the
conservation of coal, phosphate and oil
lands, and water power sites. The law
providing for the preservation of water
sheds in the White Mountain and Ap
palachian districts will mean the expen
diture of $12,000,000 in New England.
Effective steps have been taken for re
ducing expenses' and for the adoption of
a better economic system of government
accounts. The Panama canal has been
pushed toward completion with marvel
ous strides. President Taft has taken
the lead In promoting the. spirit of in
ternatloaal peace and our relations with
foreign powers are exteremly satisfac
tory. The question of currency has been
carefully studied, and for the first time,
under the lead of President Taft, scien
tific treatment has been accorded to
tariff legislation, apd a commission of
experts has been appointed by him to
give tariff schedules scientific and non
partisan and disinterested investigation
In every detail and Item of each sched
ule. .
The alleged Progressive atrength In
the Vermont legislature faded from the
landscape when the final test came
Wednesday. Charles H. Thompson,
Roosevelt manager for the state, had
figured on 89 Progressive votes, and Mr.
Metzger had been quoted as claiming 70
legislators pledged to him, but the count
showed only 32 for Metzger The spe
cial correspondent of the Boston Globe
at Montpeller quoted Judge Gibson of
Brattleboro as saying after the election
"I still think that the fight In this
state is between Wilson and Roosevelt.
Taft Is out of It. If Roosevelt can't
win, I'd rather see Wilson get it. We
nre going to keep this fight up against
the old machine. That Is settled. The
sooner they realize that the better it
will be for them."
So this Is the attitude of the Progres
sives rule or ruin. If Roosevelt can't
win they want Wilson.
Do men who have always supported
the Republican party, and who voed
for Metzger this year, approve of these
sentiments? It Is a question for them
to consider candidly before voting in
Gov. Mead has Joined with the gov
ernors of various other states in desig
nating 'Oct. 9 as fire prevention day.
He points out that Insurance losses paid
on fires which occur in this state reach
the enormous and surprising total of
nearly $1,000,000 annually. No account
Is taken of the fires where there is no
Insurance, of the expense of carrying
Are Insurance policies or of maintain
ing fire departments. In a population of
not over 360,000 we are burning up sev
eral thousand dollars worth of prop
erty every day. Last year an attempt
was made to devote fire prevention day
to practical work which will cut down
the great annual loss cleaning up waste
places In basements, back yards and al
leys, having fire drills In factories, In
specting fire escape's, Installing Are
fighting devices, etc. A large percent
age of the fires In sparsely settled com
munities come from defective flues. The
first duty for every farmer and every In
dividual householder next Wednesday In
the observance of fire prevention day
will be to carefully examine, or to have
examined, the chimneys and pipes In
his own home.

President William H. Taft Will Speak at Island Park at 2 o'clock
Also Will Visit Townshend
President William Howard Taft
Brattleboro will be honored next Mon
day by a visit from William Howard
Taft, President of the United States, on
his way to Montpeller, nnd he has con
sented to speak to the people who may
ussemble heie. Arrangements have been
mo.de whereby he will give an address
at Island park, tho management of the
park generously offering the use of the
premises, and detailed plans are being
mapped out today for the event. The
address will take place at 2 o'clock. It
will not be of a political nature, but It
will be of an uplifting character, of a
kind to inspire all patriotic citizens re
gardless of political adulations." Presi
dent Taft Is one of the most powerful
speakers In the country, and no doubt
he will be heard by thousands.
President Taft will arrive in Brattle
boro In the middle of the day, Monday,
coming from the home of Senator Mur
ray Crane In Daltori, Mass., by automo
bile. He will be accompanied by Mrs.
Taft, a small party of friends and the
usual guard of secret service men. The
President and his party will come by
way of Greenfield and at the state line
he will be met by a representative of
the state government, who will accom
pany him during his visit In this state.
Upon his arrival here the President will
be met by a citizens' committee and
they will have charge of the arrange

18,106 Admissions Being Paid.
Corrected footings of the attendance
at the Valley fair last week show that
the total was somewhat larger than was
announced from the figures available
Friday morning. The total attendance
was 20,869 and the total paid attendance
IS, 10C. Last year the total attendance
was 22,228 and the paid attendance 19,
530. The falling oft this year doubtless
was due to the rain on the first day and
tho threatening weather early the sec
ond day. The receipts and expenses
cannot be given at present as many bills
have not been presented, but it looks as
though there would be a profit. The
attendance for each of the three days
was as follows:
First day Paid admissions at 50
cents, 1144; paid admissions at 25 cents,
344; employes, 185; exhibitors paying en
tries, race men and concession owners,
390; Brattleboro Retreat patients, 110;
First Regiment band, 30; total, 2203.
Second day Puld admissions at 50
cents, 10,714; paid admissions at 25
cents, 1242; employes, 210; exhibitors
paying entries, race men and conces
sion owenrs, 374; Brattleboro Retreat
patients, 135; band, 30; under five years
(estimated), 100; total, 12,805.
Third day Paid admissions at 60
cents, 4662; children under 15 admitted
free, 500; employes, 185; exhibitors pay
ing entries, race men and' concession
owners, 374; Brattleboro Retreat pa-'
tlents, 110; band, 30; total, 6861.
An accurate record of attendance was
not kept previous to 1906; but begin
ning with that year the figures are as
1906 Total, 22,064; paid, 20,524
1907 Total. 21,822; paid. 19,847

Tuberculosis Day Oct. 27.
The nnti-tuberculosls society In this
country has arranged to have a tubercu
losis Sunday observed by the churches
and have settled on Oct. 27, when min
isters are asked to talk on the means
of prevention and cure of th.ls disease.
Tuberculosis day has heretofore been
held In the spring and was1 to be held
April 28 this year, but was postponed
because another movement had gained
prominence In the churches. Man haa
already made a very creditable begin
ning of the fight against the germ caus
lng consumption, but It Is only a be
ginning. Consumption causes a large
port of preventable deaths, and there
Is hope that this disease which was so
long considered incurable will not only
be cured but wholly prevented. We have
so far mado greater progress in the work
of Cure than we have of prevention, but
In prevention is the greatest need of effort
ments fox his visit In this town. Ho will
bo entertained in some way until tlmo
for his address, when he will go in his
machine to Island park. It Is expected
that the First Regiment band will fur
nish music.
This will be President Taft's first visit
to this part of the state sTnce his boy
hood, and It Is well known that he Is
looking forward with pleasant anticipa
tion to his stay in Windham county.
Immediately after the address at Is
land park the presidential party will mo
tor to Townshend, reaching there prob
ably between 3 and 4 o'clock. It is ex
pected that lie will make a brief address
there, probably on the common, and
then he will go to West Townshend
to visit his father's blrtholace, the Taft
ancestral home and the old burying
From West Townshend the party will
go to Manchester to remain over night,
and on Tuesday morning they will pro
ceed to Montpeller. By resolution passed
by the legislature President Taft will
speak In the legislature Tuesday at the
unveiling of a tablet to the "Common
Soldier." From there the party will go
