The defendant's answer sets foith that on Aug. 23, 1915, Cobb leased from Mosh er one floor of the building for a repair shop at $1,000 a yenr rental, payable in equal monthly installments. It is claimed that lie never was given more than ap proximately two-thirds; that it had not, been heated as called for in the lease and as a result there was much loss of time to the defendant; that the plaintiff hnd failed to icpaif 11 leaky loof, which caused the defendant other damage; that the plain- till hail not given him all the leiiair work of the garage as provided for in the lease; that there is now $1A.'i.80 due the defend ant for icpair woik fiom the plaintiff; thnt ho denies that ho owes ?.i00 or any pait of it for lent nnd thnt he vacated the premises as oidered to do and they have since been in the possession of the plaint iff.

SENATOR HENRY CABOT LODGE On the Constructive Work of SENATOR CARROLL S. PAGE - " - ' 'V" ' - The following very interesting correspondence which appeared last . r- week? in the Montpelier Argus is self explanatory. Neither Senator Page nor any of his friends was aware of this correspondence until ex-State Senator Clark King caused its publication in -the Argus.' We give it as it appeared, without change or adornment. ' ; .5 Montpelier, Vt., July 14, 1010 Editor of .Montpelier Argus: Dear Sir: Will you please allow a place in the Argus for what I have to say in regard to the U. S. senatorial contest and oblige. So much has been said in the Argus which lias been copied mostly from other papers about Senator Page not being of any -account' in Congress, having done nothing in the eight years he has been there and other things said about him which were not very meritorious to say the least, which were not true as can be proved by what his colleagues say of him in Congress. What has Senator Page done for Vermont ? He has a large business in Hyde Park and employed a good amount of help in his hide and calfskin business for many years and has paid the farmers, al so others, a large amount of mon ey for hides and calfskins here in Vermont and has paid largely for advertising at the same time. This is all true. What has ex-Governor Fletcher, who wants to be at this time Senator, done for Vermont? His business has mostly been af ter office as near as I can find out and at the present time is paying a large amount of money for adver tising to succeed Senator Page in Congress, and is doing his best to get it. Republicans of Vermont will soon decide this at the pri maries. I am pleased to offer as proof what is said of Senator Page by one of the ablest Republi cans in Congress. Hon. II. C Lodge, in reply to a letter I wrote him for information in regard to Senator Page's services in Con gress, and ask to have it printed in the Argus, so that Republicans can know the truth in regard to Senator Page's services in Con gress. Having received this reli able information from a source which cannot well be doubted, it seems now that Scna'tor Page is entitled to a rc-electipn to Con gress. This is from one that be lieves in a square deal in politics as Well as in business. Respectfully submitted, CLARK KING.

C July 17, 1916. My Dear Sir: I have received your letter of July 11. You will understand of course, that it would not be fitting for me, a senator from another state, to take sides in a contest be tween Republicans, all members of my own ' party, in Vermont. But in reply to questions you ask about Senator Page it is entirely proper for me to say that I have known Senator Page ever since he entered the Senate eight years ago. He and I are friends, and my relations with him have always been most pleasant. lie is recognized by all his colleagues as a most hardwork ing, capable senator, very indus trious and careful, a very valuable and diligent member of all the committees to which he belongs and he has taken a conspicuous part in all tariff discussions since lie entered the Senate. He is, how ever, particularly identified with the bill for vocational education, a measure of the utmost importance, to which he gave many months of careful study. Having framed the bill be then, by his persistence and determination, finally carried it through the Senate. Although it failed in the House, this does not in the least detract from the ,(c served distinction which Senator Page earned by his admirable work and by his championship of this important measure. His ability and activity in the work of the Sen ate are unquestioned by any 1 one who is familiar with that body. Very truly yours, II. C. LODGE. Hon.
