THINKING-WHILE THOUSANDS PERISH
'ILL "thinking MM! men, wouicn and chiMrr-n from bring
cnishod and burned to death in railroad wrecks? The trsti
mony of a Vice-Preiident of the Now York, New Haven and
Hartford Railroad before the Interstate Commerce Corirrnission in
vestigating the wrrrk of the Botron Express at Westport, Conn., last
week, in which seven persons met death in horrible form, cannot fail
to appear to an indignant public a cool shrug of the shoulders in the
face of grave responsibility.
"Your mad," said the examining attorney, "has killed twenty
fire people and injured nearly one hundred in three almost identical
cross-over accidents. When ere you going to quit thinking and talk
ing and do something?"
"Our best thought is being given the subject," was the only reply
to this and similar questions.
How many years of thought does it take to see plain facts?
Automatic safety devices are in successful operation on electric
elevated and subway lines. They might be made to protect thousands
of lives on railroads. Is It worth the experiment?
Speed indicators in engine eabe are in use on at least one railroad
te detect violations of apeed rules. Has fbe New York, New Haven
abd Hartford any interest in such protective improvements?
Wooden cars, which aplinter and eateb fire, are responsible for
most of the mangling and cremation of victims in an accident. Steel
ears do not burn, and crush far lrss easily. Why are not all new
cars built of steel?
2 Ftre that adds to the horrors of a WTeek is almost invariably
caused by fbe explosion of the Plntsrh gas tanks. Many steam. trains
are now lighted by electricity. Why not all?
The New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad enn find
money to buy up New England steamboat and trolley lines, and even
wafer and electric light plants. It can Jannch a vast hotel projcrl
at Bar Harbor. But when it comes to adopting improvements and
devices to protect the lives of the public in operating the railroad
for which it was given its franchise, this great corporation can onlv
hold back and "think about if!

"I appear for fas people," a4 a St. I,ouU lawyer to the
railroad attorney who tears trying to convince the Interstate
Commerce Commission that pretext express rotes are none too
high. Thil statement tmt greeted with loud laughter for the
old, fool client that always loses.
SO N'OW we know. Any man accused of any crime homicide,
felonious assault, perjury" separately or all together, has only
to slip through the courts, thanks to technicalities or lack of
evidence, and straightway, whatever his past character or record, our
Police Commissioner stands ready to put a revolver into his hand and
a badge on his breast and send him forth to guard and protect us!
l'rom the point of view of ordinary common sense and fitness
the case of Imbriali as brought out in the Aldennanic police investi
gation is well-nigh incredible. Here was a candidate for the police
force wbo had been rejected by two Commissioners because he wjm
accused of having shot and killed one man, cut the throat of another,
deserted his wife betweenwblles and then lied about himself to get
the appointment. Yet this man got on the fwve. And although
Commissioner WaMo seems to have been sufficiently impressed by
the character of the man's record to order that he be dropped at the

When a party of Dutchmen formed a set

whole district by right of discovery they
took scant pains to hold what they had won.
And the village and whole rnglon were given up.
Then, three years later, a band of New Englanders from the Plymouth
colony In Massachusetts formed the first permanent settlement In Connecti

The Connecticut men In ! formed a civil government of their own, drawing
up the nrai conamuuon ever wrmen lor a eeu-joverning
people. Thla conatltutlon calmly limored England' rights
and England'a very existence, although Connecticut mat
an KnglUh province.
Meantime, In 1G38. a body ot Puritans had settled New
Haven and had founded what waa known aa the New Haven Colony, rty a char
ter from the Klner of England In HISS Connecticut quietly abaorbed the vehemently
objecting New Haven Colony. And by that charter'a tarma Connecticut ran
aouth to the found and west to the 'Paclflo Ocean.
The Pactnc In thoae days waa aupposcd to be tout a comparatively short dis
tance west of the Atlantic. And aa most of the Intervening land waa an un
explored waste, no one cared especially whether the Pachto were a. hundred or
a million miles away.
Then came the French and Indian War. wherein Connecticut gallantly bore
her part. The first clash with England followed.
Connecticut reslted oppression. Her English governor, Androa, demanded
that she give up her treaaured oharter. His command was not refused. But It
w.ia not obeyed. Instead, the churter la said to have been hidden In a hollow oa'.t
until after Andros had gone back to England. Then It reappeared.
When the colonies became Statea Connecticut was one of the original thir
teen. She did grand aervlce during the .Revolution, not only by the warlike deeds
1 of her sons but by the vast quantities of food she sent to Washington's starving
I armlea. There was comparatively little fighting on her own soil.
Connecticut was foremst among the statea to oppose the war of 1812, but
1 when her bitter protesta proved useless she did her full share In men and
: money for the cause.
When the civil war set In sine furnlshcl more than her requ'red quota of
troops. I'rom the very first the Connecticut men enlist
ed eagerly In brhalf of the Union. Nearly 53.000 volunteera
from that one State served 1n the civil war a dispropor
tionately large number for the sire of the population.
From earliest days Connecticut has had rapid, steady
growth. Her Industries have become world-wide In importance.
Her sons' shrewdness and business sharpness long ago gave her the nickname
of "the Nutmeg State." From having the first constitution she was also called
"the Constitution State." While for her splendid gifts at food to the hungry revo
lutionists she was for years known as "the Provision State."
