THE GOVERNOR'S ME88AQE.
In spite of its inordinate length, which
makes its publication in full out of the
question, Governor Dix's annual message
is Intareatlng and, all In all, distinctly
the ablest state paper thai has come
from his pan. There aro no recom
mendatloni in it of overshadowing im?
portance, hut there aiv several that show
tha Govarnor'a Increasing mastery, or
that of IlLs advisers, over the details of
the state's huillioaa As usual, what the
Governor has to say about direct pri
marlea leaves a good dual to be desired
li- seems to see that the law pataad hist
year araa a makeshift, hut he is content
to leave it one except in some of the less
important particulars, in* recommend?
log changea with regard to these, how?
ever, lie runs counter to the plana Of
Tammany Hal!. Hut in the situation
that now exists at Albany he is com?
paratively huh pendent of Tammany,
and had he only perceived Ids opportu?
nity and made the most of it he might
have taken the lead in a movement t??
??ive the state a real direct primary law.
I'pon the kindred matter of protecting
the purity of the ballot the Governor
writes with unusual vigor and make?
some drastic recommendations, while <>n
the subject which is said to Interest ?dm
m.?re than any other?conservation of
the state's resources, and especially the
development of its water power?he is
wordy and vague. No well thought out
plan is submitted t?> the Legislature.
Baal constructive work aeemi to he be?
yond the Govarnor'a range, as was
shown last year by the lamentable weak?
ness of his vaunted design to remodel
the administration of the state on the
lines that hp conceived to be those ?if a
great business corporation. The possi?
bilities in the development of the ?tate'a
water power he sees mote clearly than
any of his predecessors, for his busineea
experience has brought them home to
him, and he parcetvea <'(|ually well wher??
the interests of the public lie; but it is
unlikely that he will have succeeded b]
the end of his term in much advancing
the project which is said to be his chief
Interest.
The Governor urges amending the con?
stitution to permit the paaaage of a
workingnien's compensation law and
recommanda an extension of tha preset
investigation of factory conditions for i
year. As a whole, his message contains
many recommendations ?is to matters
affecting the public welfare which aro
sensible and will be generally approved
On the subject of home rule for cities he
speaks with a good deal of vigor, in
spite of what his party associates, with?
out any objection from him, attempted to
?lo to this city at the last session of tha
Legislature.
Phis bring! to mind tha ??ssenfial
weakness of Governor IMx. It is almost
always poaalbla to applaud ids declared
purposes. It is the way he goes about
their accomplishment that has made his
administration the object of public die.
Content He has been too faint hearted.
lie has been so much impressed with
the necessity of compromise that he has.
been r-ady to surrender everything to
gal nothing. He is fortunate this year
in that no 000 remains for him to bar?
gain witii in the "id sickening fashion of
last year. For there Is no one left big
enough to "deliver" anything,
WHERE Till.) DREW Till: I.IM
The Republican members of the Aa
s?-!iibly did Hot do the wisest thing in
making Mr. Ilerritt Speaker. They
might have made Jhe situation much
worse by making Hay It. Smith clerk.
They didn't do that, which loads The
Tribune to hope that they are not with?
out some realising sense of their re?
sponsibilities, and that they are Dot in?
clined to proceed with the same disre?
gard of public opinion that character?
had the clOOe of the last period of lie
publican aacundaney in the f ag?ala I nre
There is manifest just now a disposi?
tion to draw the line somewhere. An
Asneuibl*,' which draws the line at Smith
may reasonably be expactad t<> draw
the line at a number .of other things
which would make Republican success
in this state m-xt fall dubious. The
Tribune will encourage it tu draw tli ?
line there with all Its might, and will
show it little consideration when it
wants to draw the line somewhere else
or not at all.
IMPERIALISM iv/' SOCIALISM,
The German electorate is ?tin divided
into a dozen different parties and mem?
bers of parliament are still elected ac
cordlng to the apportionment of forty
years ago. Por those reaaona there is
no prospect of anything like propor?
tional representation of the various
parties in tin- new Reichstag which is
to be elected next week, -nul Um Boda!
Democratic party may not become a
much more Important factor In legisla?

expectation, however, that it will make
material gains in seats und will so

a ?lifferent attitude toward it from that'
which it has hitherto maintained In il
?German election a dear majority is re?
quired in conserjuenoe there are always
many second elections, and at these all
other parties ?ire pretty sur?- to unite

with a fair redistrleting of the empire,
they would probably have twice ?is many

They are considered sure of making

yo A i:i:i> OF AQITATIOy OVER
CANAL TOLLS.
Some of our tr.insatlautic friends are
"drangely agitated over the rn il_-nt"*i
recenl references to the fixing of tolls
on the Panama Canal. Tln-y seem to
think that in some way tin- ilay-1'airi??'

they rallier shrilly protest t<> the world
that it would he unavailing sophistry for

appears to be do need, unless to demon?

Tlioiisands of p?'rsoti? in Iluilsoti
('?unity. N. .1.. wer?' Startled when they
beard yeaterday that Bgan, ?he county
Collector, had been senteneeil l<? seven
years in stale prison, the extn-ine ;??>n
alty of tin- law. for his illegal lending of
county money !?? the hile "Bob" Davis,
I>enio<Tntie h??ss of that ?'?uiiily. They
did ii??t egped so severe a sentence.
Then was no proof, nor even thoii_ht,
that Bgan had pecuniarily p*ra_tod from
his net St that he had led other than 71
?lean and detent life- The County had
lost not a ?cnt. ?ave the Interest ob th??
money, for the whole Mini ha?i bgjfj ?'?'
paid I'.L'iin dhl not mean t<? roh the

pleaded Strongly for leniency, ami -uno
of tile abh-st advocates of the Now Jer?
sey bar did their utmost f??r him Vet
the Judge Impoaad the *Bj*rergei penalty
of the law And of the thousands wh,,
express surprise ?here Is not one
thoughtful mau who will challenge the
justice of the sentence or successfully
maintain such a challenge.
I'.gan is the victim of a system. It ls
I system which has long prevailed in
Hudson County and elsewhere. It is
thoroughly vicious, corrupt and demor?
alizing, it Is utterly incompatible with
hnin-si or eiii?ient government But men
who mean well and wish to bo holiest,
like this one, are often drawn into U
I.use if is necessary for them to ac
ipiies.-e in ir. or so they think, if they
are to gel Into public ??dice <?r ara to
bold their places. Such bosses as "Rob"
I ?avis devise or din-ct the s\stem for
th.-ir own udvaritage. and they make
subservience to it the price of tenure of
office to all their subordinates. Thai
was Kgans case. He had to do as Davis
wished him to do or lose the boss's favor
and thus destroy his own political oros
pacta, .Moreover, there was the consid?
?rai ion of friendship and gratitude,
which is potent to a certain extent.
Bgan knew that It was not right for
him to do as he did. Rut he had to do It
in order to "keep in with the boss" and
b.- loyal to his conception of friendship.
Resides, he meant to see to It that the
money was all returned to the county.
Just so a bank employe might take
money from the bank to help a friend,
intending to return it. Rut he would
he an embezzler. Just the same.
Tile whole system of using public of?
fice for private gain and using public
money as though it were the officehold?
er's own is so abominable and revolting
t?i every sense of decency In government
that such a sentence as that which Jus
lice Swayze imposed in tills case is-?'rat?
ifying and commendable. It is ouly by
making such conduct odious and per'lais
that it can be sfoppi'd and public olll
i ials can be brought to a realization of
ili.ii- responsibilities -and obligations.
There will be regret fur the individual,
but it will lie not so much because he
has been justly punished as becafSS h"
was so foolish, so weak or so dull U 10
]?-t himself be made a pari of the sys?
tem. The sentence will greatly help to
improve th?? publie service throughout
the state.

CORRECTING THE LAWS
The Function of Congress, and Not of
the President.
To tho Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I am not a prophet nor the son of a
prophet, but It seems to mo one does not
need to be a prophet to predict what would
happen if we defeated President Taft for
re-election next November. Here we have
a lot of aspirants for the Presidency, at?
tacking the administration of President
Taft, every one of them knowing that the
President Is ?iot the lawmaker In this coun?
try. It Is the Congress that makes the
laws. It ia the President's business to en?
force them. Who ?tares to say that Presi?
dent Taft has not done that?
H? re Is President Taft, a calm, cool, con?
scientious, non-ostentatious, deliberate oitl
ciU. performing the highest function of
power In the laud In a. manner that courts
the admiration of every lov.-r of peace, or?
der and conoord. Are we going to substi?
tuto for him turbulence, ehaoa and confu?
sion?
If there Is anything wrong with the laws
let th.- Prrnl.lentl.-il aspirants bend their
an? rglea toward slSOttag the lawmakers.
They may r-st assured that Mr. Taft will
enforce ths laws without fear or favor.
