Al OVER BUT THE SHOUTING
' Our' good friend, Hon. Frank E.
Htowe, former lieutenant-governor and
editor of the Bennington Banner, lias
given the following estimate of the
vote for governor in the September
primaries Babbitt, 12,508, Emery, 8,
900,'Agan, 7,616, Hartness 5,411. Mr.
Howe figures even closer than this
and gives the vote he expects cueh of
the four republican candidates will
get in every county in the state. We
arc surprised that Mr. Howe did not
go still farther and give us the vote
in every community from Somcrsrt
with its one Vote to Burlington's 8000
voters. Qcrtainly Mr. Babbitt must j
ue supremely satisneu wren tne resun
and it would seem as if it was all
over' but the shouting.
j.n Caledonia county Mr. Howe
Xives Emery 1170, Babbitt 360, Ajran
90 and Hartness 180. In Essex coun
ty tho forecaster gives Emery 375
votes, Babbitt 75, Agan 25 and Hart
ness 25. The figures for Orleans
county arc Emery 2,400, Babbitt 300,
Agftn 150, Hartness 150.
We do not pretend to know much
about the outcome of the September
primary, but we doubt very much if
there will be 34,125 votes cast in the
primary for these candidates. Cer
tainly if they get as many it will be
by the help of the Democrats and
one would naturally expect that the
lemocrats would support their
nwn
ticket both at the primaries and at
the election. Gov. Clement, in 1918,'
only received 28,358 votes and six '
years Gov. Gates had 36,972 votes.
We still believe that the friends of ;
the Bellows Falls candidate are under- j
estimating the strength of both Cel. '
Emery and Mr. Agan and if the vote I
was taken tnrtiiv wc believe Col. rJm- ;
erv would lead with Agan a close
second, Babbitt third and Hartness a
bad fourth.
Tho ..nvmnl rnniiblimn vntn in 1
Caledonia county is around 3,000 and; 14. Eminent speakers will be present
there are as yet only two contests, the ! " it is expected that the affair
governor and state senate. These ! the first Pythian field day since the
contests will bring out a good vote ! world war will equal if not surpass
snd estimating the vote at the prim-1 tno successes of similar gatherings in
mi-v at 1.600 we will venture the pre-
diction that Col. Emery gets 910, Mr.
Hartness 275, Mr. Agan 200 and Mr.
Babbitt 155.
Col. Emery's chances for success
look good to us and when the votes
are all counted up we believe the con
gratulations will be sent from Bel
lows Falls to Newport. Col. Emery
is not pussy-footing" and he is con
ducting a campaign above board that
will bring results at the pons.
THE; GOVERNOR THAT FAILED
To the utter disregard of men and
women of Vermont and the nation
and to the supreme disgust of
thousands oi Vcrmonters who sup
ported Gov. Clement in the last
campaign, this stubborn executive
with the granite mind and marble
heart, has declined to call a special
session of the Vermont Legislature
to make Vermont the ncrfect state.
He has yielded to the advice of some
friends who have ill-advised him
from the start, and the results of his
political mistake will be far-reaching.
Some good republicans have even ex
pressed their firm belief that if he did
rot call a special session the demo
crats would carry the next election.
But what does this autocrat care for
the future of tho j.artw that elected
him to the office he has now rcpudia
ed if he can have his own way. It
is a sad ending to a political career
of this man of three score and ten
when he had the opportunity to
blaze his name high on the political
escutcheon,
"Wc shall march prospering,
not through his presence
Deeds will be done, while
boasts his quiescence
Still bidding crouch whom
rest bade aspire
One task more declined,
more footpath untrod."

the
Married at St. Aloysius
Church Saturday
A very quiet wedding took place at
the St. Aloysius church at 9 o'clock
Saturday morning, when Emil Savard
and Mrs. Rita Maffa of St. Johnsbui-r
were united in marriage by Rev. J.
W. Dwycr. The bride was attired in
white satin with hat 1o match. The
couple were attended by Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Marcotte of St. Johnsbury
and went after the ceremony to
North Conway where thev will snend
a few days. They will reside on
Harvey street after their return.
St. Johnsbury's Streets
and Sidewalks
The village trustees have mapped
out the work of the street depart
ment for the summer, hut are greatly
handicapped in their work because of
the non-arrival from Boston of the
stone crusher. The machine broke
down last fall and was sent to the
factory the first of the year in ample
time for repairs to be made and re
turned for the present season. Un
til if nrrivns in 5?f .Inhiiwhiii'tr it will
be impossible to crush the stone for
the foundation ol the streets or for
the concrete sidewalks. At present
the steam roller is beinrr used on
Portland street where the highway is
being spiked and rolled. This meth
od will be employed in the other prin
cipal street, nnd unless the stone
crusher arrives prettv soon is about
all that can be done to improve our
highways. Of course it is not as per
manent as re-surfacing, but it is the

Hospital, is running tho steam roller.
At present the only new sidewalk be- j
ing laid is a cement sidewalk and !
cross walk on lliver street. This will
be much appreciated bv the people
in that section who have long been'
without a suitable walk.
St. Johnsbury Inn
Property Is Sold
A deed of transfer of the old St.
Johnsbury Inn on Railroad St. from
Caldcrwood and Son to Joe Costa
was recorded at the town clerk's
office, Thusday. On Tuesday, Mr.
Costa commenced work on the front
of the building, where molds have
been set lor a concrete foundation
nearer the street. Modern display
windows will be put in and the
building, which is in rather poor
condition will be repaired and
strengthened. It is possible that one
side will be occupied by a fruit store
though it is not definitely decided.
On the other hand, rooms will be
rented as before in other parts of
the building and a modern front
erected.
MIDSUMMER
OUTING OF
THE PYTHIANS
Lodges and Temples Will
Rendezvous at Harvey's
Pond August 14
An enthusiastic meeting of Pythian
brothers and sisters was held at tho
castle hall of Apollo Lodge Thursday
evening in preparation for a Pvthian
?,eld day to be celebrated by the local
ymmn district. .Delegations were
present f rom Mclndoes, Danville and

Clover Temple and Danville Green
Temple added to the enjoyment of

noon and evening ot Saturday, Aug.
ulLT'
H. C. Kent of Mclndoe is looking
after the business side of the picnic,
assisted by the Chancellor Command

The midsummer outing will be
purely a Pythian celebration to
which all brothers and sisters of the
order are invited, together with their
families and friends. After it is all
over these Pythians who have not at

BRALEY'S
SIGNATURE
MAY BE FORGED
Discoveries Lead to Belief
In Foul Play in Mysteri
ous Disappearance
The further examination into the
affairs of Fred N. Braley, cousin of
C. G. Braley of St. Johnsbury, whose
private papers, will, and some per
sonal effects were found in a Port
land, Oregon Paik has brought little
more to light. The discovery was
made by sheerest accident by Ben
Betchel. a drue-gist of Portland, who
was hiking through the roughest
part of Maclcay Park when he fell
through into a cache six feet long
and two and one-half feet wide. At
one end it was four feet deep, at the
other, about two and one-half feet.
Search for a body was made by
Betchel when he brought a compan
ion with him the next dav, and failing
of that they did discover the other
things in two half-gallon glass fruit
jars.
Foul play is suspected. In the first
place, several tracings of his signa
ture were found, giving rise to a be
lief that his property had fallen into
the hands of some other people who
were trying to obtain possession of
more. There wcr several checks f
fairly large amounts on large banks
with no payee designated, but with
the signature "Fred N. Braley"
thereon. One of theso was on the
Bankers' Trust Co., one of the larg
est institutions in the country. There
were numerous blank powers of at
torney on California forms, all
bearing the signature, together with
some quitclaim deeds on Texas oil
property. It is therefore thought
possible that this property may have
been anpropriatcd by some one, the
man killed, and the properly hidden
so that it might be made use of in
the future. But the coroner of Port
land has found no unidentified body
which might be that of Braley, who
was described at 5 ft. 1 in. and
weighing 1C0 lbs.
Braley was of unquestioned busi
ness veracity both in Portland and
Banc, where, he was an influential
citizen. His property is in the hands
of George Gearhart, an Oregon at
torney, who is complying with the
Oregon law of unidentified property,
specifying that the county clerk be
notified, public notices be posted, and
if unclaimed after a year, that half
go to the office of the countv treas
urer, and the balance be divided be
twen the finders.

RUMOR ABOUT
FINDING REGAN'S
BODY IS UNTRUE
A persistent rumor has been
in circulation in Newport during
the past two days that the body
of little Leon Regan, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Henry Gare of Orleans
who was drowned in the Black
River early in April, had been
found and that Everett Hall and
Napoleon Cholifoux had made a
confession of how the boy met
his death. This rumor was in
vestigated and found to be untrue.
SHERBROOKE
WINS IN 16
INNING GAME
1 Battle Filled With
Thrills
When a short, be-spectacled lad
named Giboin stcpucd up to. bat and
slammed a red hot liner safely into
center field at Shcrbrooke Saturday
afternoon he put an end to a base
ball game that will go down in local
sporting history as a classic. It
ended a game that had been a con
tinuous scries ot thrills tor 16 inn
ings with a score of two to one in
favor ot the Canadian city against
the Fairbanks A. A. of St. John.'
bury.
It would take columns of space to
do justice to this record-breaking
sporting event. Nearly 100 loyal
rooters from St. Johnsbury were on
hand at the Exhibition grounds to
give their homo team generous sup
port. Nearly 1000 baseball fans of
Shcrbrooke turned out to see the
game.
On July 5 in St. Johnsbury the
Shcrbrooke team was defeated by the
1' airbanks players by the score ot
to (). It took shcrbrooke 10 innings
of the hardest kind of baseball to win
from St. Johnsbuiy. The third con
test between these two teams the
strongest in this nart of the country
is now being arranged foi
The game opened by S. Johnsbuiy
with a run in their first frame of the
first inning. Conner drew a base on
balls. Hoernle slammed out a three
bagger seoriii" Conner. Conner who
ran for Hoernle was caught at the
homo plate and Sullivan and Swan
fanned. This ended St. Johnsbury s
scoring for the 16 innings.
As the game wanned up and Sher
brooke failed to get a man around
to third base a feeling of bitterness
and disappointment irrasped tho
Shcrbrooke players. Newton, an ex
cellent catcher and a hardworking
player, lost his head several times.
First, he blamed the umpire, "Ted"
Brown .of Shcrbrooke for calling
balls instead of sti ikes when the
home team was in the field. Follow
ing an argument at the plate he used
abusive language to Woods of St.
Johnsbury with the result that
Woods of St. Johnsbury gave the
Canadian a swift jab in the ribs.
The players intervened and Newton
took off his catcher's outfit and was
for quitting the game. But his fel
low players prevailed on him to re
sume and he and Woods shook hands
and Newton went at the amo again.
Att he end Of the first half of the
8th inninevthe score was 1 to 0 in
St. JohnsbVry's favor. Vnughan
sent a stinging grounder to first
which Slayton was unable to
handle. Vaughan started for second
and on a passed ball and a wild
throw to second, scored.
The game went the nine innings
without further scoring and into the
extra frames. From the tenth inning
on the contest was a grueling one.
Evorvtime St. Johnsbury took the
field the Shcrbrooke crowd started a
mighty shout and used every means
to rattle McMann, the clever Fair
banks pitcher, who twirled a magni
ficent came. He did not allow a base
on balls and struck out nine men.
He had hard luck in tho fielding
of his fellow players. What few er
rors were made were on the first man
to bat. This placed a man on first in
about, every inning after the ninth
and it was a tight squeeze to prevent
a score. Right up to the finish Mc
Mann showed speed galore and was
annarently as fresh in the 16th
frame as in the first.
In the 12th inning St. Johnsbury
hd a fine chance to win. Swan sent
a fine two-bagger over second base.
He reached third on Gormley s
grounder. Woods sent a stinging
grounder to third. Swan did not wait
to draw a throw to first before start
ing for home but ploughed for the
hme plate. He was out bv a mile.
In the 14th Sullivan of St. Johns
bury prevented Shcrbrooke from
scoring by a magnificent catch of a
short fly ball into left field. He
scooped the ball just before it touch
ed the ground. It was a clean catch
but some of the Shcrbrooke rooters
claimed it was scooped off the
grund.
Gormley in the 12th made a sensa
tional catch which prevented Shcr
brookc from scoring. He chased a
fly ball into deep center and jumped
for it. He tell on his back but re
tained the ball.
The outficlding of the St. Johns
bury players was great. Wood muf
fed a fly ball into his garden but he
was running directly towards a pick
et fence and had he not stopped,
muffing the ball would have been
severely injured by running full
force into tho fence.
The infield work of St. Johnsbury
wus of big league type. Repeatedly
Connor scooped up hot grounders in
the infield, tagged second and in one
case got the ball down to first for a
double.
McMann is a worthy colleague of
Vitty for the pitching staff of the
Fairbanks nine. Under the master
direction of Hoernle he pitched a
clean, heady game, never getting
rattled even under the fussilade ofj
groam and shouts of the Sherbrooke
crowd. . Hoernle deserved all the
praise that St. Johnsbur" can be
stow upon him for the ereat team he
is putting into the field. The ' team
was not batting strong in Sherbrooke
but this was due to the masterly
game that Thormalen pitched. This
younir wizard was going as strong in
the 16th as when he started the
game. I" f
The Fairbanks team is looking for
games with teams that can make it
interesting' for the home outfit.
Tremendous interest was shown in
the bulletins posted on the Caledonian-Record
bulletin board and the
announcement thrown on the screen
at the Please U theatre announcing
the result ol the game. Hundreds
of telephone calls were answered at
this office giving the result ol the
game,

NEW MOTOR TO
DRIVE AIRPLANE
200 MILES HOUR
Packard Motor Co. Develop
500-600 Engine for
Airplane
C. H. Goss Co. has received from
the Packard Motor Car Co., of De
troit news which will astonish the
motor world. Col. Jesse D. Vincent.
one of the creators of the Liberty
motor, has designed for the Packard
Co., a new 500-600 horse power air-
cnpine, the most powerful in the
world except for a few racing freaks.
It is expected to develop far greater
speeds than any yet achieved. More
over it is fireproof, and can be start
ed when "cold" after a long, dive,
this ending the two greatest dan
gers which aviators have had to face.
In spite of its power tho new en
gine is no treak. It is desnmed lor
steady loniMimc service, and while
it is expected to send a plane along
at least 200 miles an hour, it was not
planned for this purpose alone, and
is capable of wide and General use. It
weighs only 1.94 lbs. per horse
power.
There arc several notable advances
on the Libert" and other airplane
motors. It is firje-proof for all civil
purposes. This has been attained b"
putting the carburetor below and
outside the crankcase, with all vents
outside the cowlinr so that there is
no danger from a back f.re. Another
change is that there arc two inlet
and two outlet valves per cylinder in
stead of one, insuring a steadier flow
of ras to the cylinders. The third
change is the most unusual in air
plane cnirines. Instead of two car
buretors, a sinelc duplex carburetor
is used. This reduces the difficulty
which the synchronizing of throttle
and altitude controls of two carbu
retors has always presented to air
plane engineers. While it was al
ways thought that two were essential,
the sirle dunlex carburetor gives
splendid results in power output. as
oline economy, and other details.
Col. Vincent predicts that it will be
come a universal design with air
plane engineers.
The engine is, of course, equinncd
with the Packard fuelizer which
means perfect combustion of even
poor ppi'i-- "ii-.oiii". Thb aLa
great)" increases safety, since one of
the p-'ia tor's dangers ha3 always
been that it was often impossible to
, start an engine when it had been I
' cooled by a long dive, and many bad !
i landings resulted. This dangei is j
! eliminated by the iucliucr. !
In other respects the engine show.- I
few changes from the established I
Packard dc.-dgn, and is believed to lie
the biggest that is practical for nor- i
mal use.
