VERMONT WATCHMAN & 8TATB JOORNAL, THURSDAY. DKCEMBKR I5, '910.
THE ELECTIOX OF JUDGES.

Bennington county, providlng that. tho

as a matter of form, but tho tenuro

would tend to glvo tho .ludges a
greater senso of stablllty than tlio
Few Statcs elcct thclr Judges for
such short tcrms as Vermont does.
Most Statcs clcct thelr Judges by dl
rect vote of tho peoplo lnstcad of lay
Ing that duty upon tho Leglslature
as vo do In Vermont. In his specch
nt tho Torccntenary banciuet at Bur
lington Presidcnt Taft sald: "You
olcct your Judges by the Leglslature,
I should thlnk a way that might bo
improved and you elect them evcry
one or two ycars. I forgct whlch,
but whatever It Is, tho tcnurc of of
ficc is practlcally for llfe, bccauso
you bollevo that whon you havo got a
good thlng you ought to keep It. "Tho
Presldent was right. The method of
electing our Judges mlght be InH"
proved, and thls year would bo a good '
tlme to accompllsh tho change. 1
We lay too niany olectlon dutles
upon the Leglslature, whlch is sup
posed to be a law-mnklng body, not
an exten8lve body. Even the constitu
tlonal provislon providlng for tho
olectlon of United Statcs Senators ls
opposed by many Statcs and probably
wlll be changed wlthln the next de
cadc or two.
There are serlous objectlons to tho
clection of Judges by the Leglslature.
A proposal of amcndment already
made ls deslgned to put a stop to tho
practlce, so prevalent of chooslng
Judges from the membershlp of tho
Leglslature whlch elects. lt wlll be
remembered that two years ago thcro
were persistent reports 0 the effcct
that the electlon of a Judgo was com
pllcated wlth the passage of the so
called "ealary grab" blll. It ought
not to be posslblo to allow such an
lmportant matter to depend In any de
gree upon the passage of legislatlve
measures, or to glve occaslon for any
susplclon of dcals or comblnatlons.
If the Judges were elected dlrectly
by the people thls paper, for one, be
lieves that the system would be an
improvement over tho present one and
that a ten year term would be in
Ueeplng wlth the dignity of the offlce,
and the quality of the men whom we
choose for hlgh judlcial posltions.
THE IMMIGKATIOX COMMISSIOX.
"A Brief Statement of the Conclus
ions and Recommendations of the
Immigration Commisslon" of whlch
Senator Dillingham Is chairman, has
recently been lssued, and it is an in
teresting and an lmportant document.
The pamphlet glves a brief history
of the commisslon and its work, In
cluding the investigations made in
Europe and the United States. It is
shown that from July 1, 1819 to June
30, 1910, 27,218,710 immigrants were
admitted to the United States, and of
thls number 91.5 per cent came from
European countries. From 1819 to
1883 more than 93 per cent of the Eur
opean immigratioTt onginatea jn
Great Brltain. Germany, Scandinavia,advertised, 'but after remaining un -
the Netherlands, Belglum, France and
Switzerlnnd. Slnce 1883 70 per cent.
of European immigration has come
from the southern and eastern por
tions of the continent.
The older immigration was one of
permanent scttlers. Of the newer im
migration at least 40 per cent. returns
to Europe and at least 30 per cent.
remains there. More than 35 per cent.
of the newer immigration is illiterato
as compared wlth less than 3 per
cent of the old class.
It ls interestlng to note that tho
commisslon declares that "emigration
from Europe is -not now an absolute
economic necessity and as a rule those
who emigrate to the United States
are impellcd by a deslro for better
snent rather than by the necessity of
esonping intolerable conditions. Thls
fact should largely modify tho nntur
al incentive to treat the Immigration
movement from the standpolnt of sen
timent and permlt Its conslderation
prlmarlly ln an economlc problem."
The commisslon was surprised to
flnd fewer caaes of ovcrcrowding in tho
cities, and less uncleanllness than was
