Hit" " i - - , , . various phases of the dilemma in which . i... ..in.,.,., nnu- finds itself were thoroughly threshed out. Hefore the hearing liad been in progress long it became evident that the bill of which Mr. Gibson is father contained many weak spots and would amount to very little if passed in its original form. It was pointed out that it lacked tho provision for the right of appeal on the question of the necessity of taking land and on the question of damage. This omission alone would have made the amendment unconstitutional accord ing to a recent decision of the Vermont supreme court (Stearns vs City of Barrc "2nd Vt). Another provision which caused criticism was that legalizing the actions of the village nt the special meeting of Jnn. 10, 1906 and continu ing the present water bonrd in power until its successors should bo chosen. Mr. Crowell's position before the committee was that his property rights ili.rml the villnize should be taken into consideration and that the charter should, therefore, contain a clause compelling the village to ne gotiate for his systems before taking steps toward the establishment of a competing one. The water board main tained that the majority of the voters of the village were not in favor of compulsory arbitration nnd that no such restriction should be placed in Hie char ter.

W. B. C. SHekncy of Bethel then spoke as counsel for Mr. Crowed. He said that there was no objection to giving the village of Brattleboro au thority to obtain the relief it desired, but that the legislature should be ,iust in the matter. He said ho had no par ticular criticism to make m regard to the charter amendment as proposed by Mr Gibson's bill, but that the com mittee should take into consideration the conditions that had grown out. of the fact that there was an existing svstem in the town. He said that tho ":n i.,i maAa demands on Mr. Crow- ell from time to time until his systems had become almost UKe puone proper j i.- thn insertion of a BeO- anu ue i)iuj"t - . tion forbidding the village to construct . , I X 4 unfit it. hfld an lniiepenoeui bjoici.. l:i4J tho nroaent SVStemS UU- arouruvcu iu. i -- , der the terms of the agreement ratified by the informal voie ui iuo ...B at the meeting held in Juno of this year.

C. iitts who gave a lucid history of the Brat tleboro water question. In lSio ne said the legislature passed an amend ment to the village charter in regard to a water supply. This amendment was to become operative only upon i a vote of a majority of the voters of the village and consent in writing of per- ,ontinr a maioritv of the OENTLEMEIf TEOM VEBMoNT.

The prospects for the coming vear arc considered very bright and the companies expect to receive as many orders as tlicy had during th ...n. iani if not more. In speakmtf of comlitions in Brattleboro a prominent officer of the companies savs mm ii. impossible for them to secure as much help as is needed owing to the scarcity of tenements nnd because the condi tion of Vernon street is such that it reallv is a hardship sometimes for the men 'to be compelled to traverse it. If .1.. .... n.mil.1 nut in a sidewalk or the street car company a trolley line, though its cars run oniy occiisiuimi.. , it wnul.l be n material help to business in that part of the town. Shipments from the factory of the S. A. Smith company up to December 1 show a resonnble percentage of in crease, over the corresponding period of last vear. On December 1 the com panv had on its pay-roll 150 people, a number considerably in excess of that employed a year ago. Its dis bursements for wages during 1906 hnve exceeded those of last year, which is naturallv for the benefit of local trades men and property owners. The build ing conditions of the Smith company for this year have not been visible asido from the bridge which connects its main plant with the Hildreth shop, which has been rented for a term of - utnroire ImrilOSeB. bllt tile Bp- pearancc of the plant has been con siderably improved through the liberal use or paint Drusiieo. Reports from other Brattleboro indus tries show that conditions with them are similar and there is every reason to believe that the year of 1907 will be more prosperous. p..fan.

The report or the treas urer showed the financial condition of tho institution to be about the same as a vear ago, although less money has been taken in during the past year because of less illness in town. The maintenance of the hospital cost the Thompson fund approximately 1-.W for tho year just ended, this being .) less than was received from the fund lust veur. The report of the superintendent, Miss Klsie i'. McCloskey, shows that seventeen less patients have been ad mitted to the hospital this year than lust; the number this year being 20t). Of these 8(i were medical cases and 104 surgical cases. Last year the number 4t i:...,i ..... im 44 nnd the num ber of sifrgienl cnses 1 Ten patients have died at the hosK " during the nnst vear.

Fifty-nye patients have been treated free tins vear as against 52 last year. The num 'her uaving less than the full rate this 1 . Ill L. nMuinlll year was Zi as nguiiisi. mo vear. The report of the district nurse, Miss Florence A. McDonald, snows tho number of cases attended this year to be 222 as against 284 the previous vear. The number of calls made this was 1219 as against 2.1S0 tne pre- ..:. v.nr There nas necn a uivav in crease, however, in the number of "all night" calls made, in ner reporv .u. w n i.i ll. nttnnlinn to the fact 411C1JOIIU1U m. that during the past year the work or the district nurse una gruwu i more like what is known as hourly nursing; that is, the care of a patient for an hour or two in the morning or evening or both, and has required little of the work necessitated by careless ness or neglect which is so frequently met with in district work in the cities. There has been a marked decrease m the amount of Biirgical work done dur ing the past vear. Miss McDonald says that in general the patients have been very appreciative of all things done for their comfort and welfare and have tried to carry on the treatment in the absence of the nurse to the best of their ability. Of the number of calls listed 96 were made bv other nurses, either graduates or pupils of the training school. (CONTINUED ON THIRD PAGE.) New Telephone Subscribers.
