PROPOSALS OF AMENDMENT TO
On another page we print several
proposals of amendment to the Consti-
tution of our State. The first onu is an
lmportant one and illustrates the
tendency toward the centralization of
power. At present a bill can be passed
over the Governor's veto by a majority
vote of hotli houses; if this proposal is
accepted by vote of the people, it will
require a two thirds vote to do this.
That is the people are asked to give up
apart ot the power which they now
haveto the Governor. We are opposed
to this. We believe in the people re
taining and exercising the power of
government. 0 course, if the Gover
nor vetos a bill the Legislature will
give it a more careful consideration be-
cause of the veto than it would other
wise nave nau, but we believe that a
majority of the people should be the
final legislative power.
Regarding the second proposal of
amendment, October is a very pleasant
and healthy month for the average
citizen to attend the Legislature,
whether a member or not. The ex
perience of many years has also shown
that the sessions are much shorter and
therefore far less expensive than if ex
tendeit over the holidays. Nor does
there seem to be any reason to suppose
that a prolonged session will result in
Theso proposals of amendment are to
be voted 011 at the coming March meet
ing and should be carefully consideretl
by all the citizens of our State.

ernment in this country is likely to
come intoits own thatis, that people
will be permitted to seeand know what
is going on at tho capital of the nation
There will be no more secret hearings
on the tariff and no secret jokers con
cealed in the schedules. The corre
spondent of the Poston Transcript says
Persons who are looking ahead be
lieve the time will come when the exec
utive sessions of the Senate will be
abolished. If there is ever any excuse
for holding an executive session it
when a treaty with a foreign Power is
under consideration. As a matter of
fact these executive sessions, supposed
to be secret, are not secret at all. The
proceedings of every such sessions
invariably published with the greatest
particulanty. The Senate may remain
in open session for days without the
newspapers paying much attention to
what it is doing, but the minute i
goes into alleged secret session the im
portance of its deliberations is magni
ned. Senators. as a rule. have ceased
to have any respect for the precedent
which tnught that it was improper to
talk of what went on in executive ses
sion. Two-thirds of the Senators will
now come out of an executive session
and talk with the utmost freedom
about the business that was under con
sideration. On the whole, the outlook for an era
of publicity is exceedingly good. The
public demands it, the President-elect
is committed to it, and public men gen
erally realize Uiat the time has come
when it ought to be introduced.
Not only that, but all departments of
the government will be open to public
bcrutiny. For a full quarter of a cen
tury or more, there were several
"inner shrines" where everything was
"among ourselves." These coteries
fixed up tho games, loaded the dice and
marked tho cards so that those who
have can got more, and thoso who lmve
not got nothing, of course. Money was
their God. The oxecuiivc Senate ses
sions was the place to make or kill all
appointments, and nobody knew who
was responsible or why. Burlington
The Editor of the Register recently
received a letter from Mr. W. C.
Manney, Libertyville, III., who writes
that his brother was withNathan Wood
up to 18-17 and himself with Mr. Wood
from 1849 until the old store was
burned. The Nathan Wood store stood
where Mr. Sheldon's store now stands.
.Few of our citizens can remember back

ANTARTIC HORROR IN FRESII
New York, Feb. 12. A special
cable to the New York American f rom
London says: A despatch from Christ
Church, New Zoaland, to anews agency
horo gives additional information con
cerning the Scott Antartic tragedy.
It statcs that Surgeon E. L. At-
kinson and the party under his com
mand, who found the bodies of Cap-
tain Scott, Lieutenant Bowers and Dr.
Wilson, and scarched without result for
Captain Oates, learncd when they
reached the winter quartcrs at Hut
Pointthat the northcrn party was safe.
This party was composed of Lieuten
ant Campbell, Surgeon Levick, Petty
Oflicers Abbott and Browning and
Messrs. Dickinson and Priestly.
They had been forced through
failure of the Terra Nova to reach them
to make their way alone back two
hundred milcs to Cape Evans.
They had to wait until the ice in the
sea was heavy enough for their trans
portation. In the meantime they made
a home for themselves in a snow drift,
building an ice house thirteen by nine
feet in dimensions. For more than six
months they lived on Eeal in this locality,
with a few biscuits and some cocoa and
Acute enteritis attacked some mem-
bers of the party and handicapped them
greatly in their journey when they got
started to Cape Evans.
During that trip they must have suf-
fered great hardships, being forced to
subsist during the 230 mile journey
through an Antartic winter, on pro-
visions intended for only one month.
The records brought back include
Captain Amundsen's lettcr to the King
of Norway, found in the cache made by
the Norwegian explorer when he
reached the pole a month before Scott
and his party.
An iceberg 21 miles in length was en-
countered by the Terra Nova on the re
turn voyage. Later the ship passed
through a sea of ice-bergs, being com-
pelled to steam for half a dozen miles
at slow speed along the edge of one of
WONDERFUL MACHINE WIRES
40,000 WORDS AN HOUR.
Antoine Pollak, the Hungarian inven
tor, recently gave in New York a dem
onstration of his rapid telegraph sys
tem by which 40,000 words an hour can
be despatched. The apparatus consists
of a perforating machine, in some rc-
spects, similar to a typewriter, for the
making of perforated tape, an auto
matic transmitter and a receiver.
The message is first transferred to
the tape and as the machinb for this
operation is separate from the other
appaiatus a dozen or more operators
may aid in preparing the same despatch
in order to facilitate this part of the
work. This perforated tape is then
slnced on the atomic transmittcrs
which sends the message atlightning
speed over the wires to be received
miles away where it is transferred into
manusrript form again by the receiving
The icceiver utilizes the electric cur
rents in making them act on membranes
which in turn act on a mirror. The
mirror reflects the light from an elec
tric lamp and projects a spot light on a
band of photographic paper. As the
mirror rests on a fixed point one of the
membranes gives it a vertical motion
and the other a horizontal motion. By
combining these two motions the re
flecting light writes, in the dark room,
the message on the sensitive paper in
Latin characters. The paper is auto-
matically developed and fixed in a spe
cial part of the apparatus. From there
the paper slip goes out ready to be de
livered. The width of the sensitive
band on which the message is received
is two and three-fourths inches. Bur

DIRE WASTE OF HUMAN LIFE.
It is a serious indictment which the
interstate commerce commission brings
American railroad management. Dur
ing the year now drawing to a close
there were 8,215 cases of derailment,
and of these 1,877 were caused by de-
fects in roadway and 3,847 by defective
equipment. This is a total increase of
1,075 over the derailments of the pre-
ceding year. In one serious case of
derailment the commission found 900
rotten ties within a distance of 147 rail
lengths. Some of these were so badly
decayed as to be unfit for use, and in
many cases the spikes fastening the
rails to tho ties were so loose as to be
easily disengaged by the hand. Not
withstanding such conditions, there is
no lessening of speed on American rail
roads and thousands are yearly sent to
hospitals or the grave because of this
mismanagement and contemtuous in
The tofal number of casualtiea on
steam roads during the year ended
June30was 180,123, of which 10,585
wero personsjulled and 109,538 injured.
These figures indicate an increase over
the previous year of 189 killed and
Not until the heads of railroads are
held to accountability other than mon
etary for this awful slaughter, due to
poor equipment and bad management,
will the death toll be reduced. A few
convictions on criminal charges would
lead to greater safety. Utica Globe.

the Orange playground commission, and
socially prominent, declared that he
was unable to control an impulse to

turned back and, without disclosing
that it was his car that caused the

Mrs. Crawford W. Barnes of Middlc-
boro, the wife of Crawford W. Barnes,
while returning from a theatre party in
New Bedford with herhusband and three
friends, was thrown into the road when
the ice on a down grade near Achusnet
caused tho mnchine to skid, and was al
most instantly killed.
In addition to Mr. and Mrs. Barnes,
Frank W. Read, secretary of the Ne
masket mills; Mr. and Mrs. Georgc E.
Cove and George Shaw, who was driv

leaving the theatre at New Bedford, a
call was made upon some friends. The
hour was late and the driver sent his
car. along at a considerable rate of
speed, at times held up by the iciness
of the roads which caused the machine
to skid occasionally in spite of the skid
Crossing the Fairhaven bridge the
machine sped smoothly through Acush
net and ovei Brayley's hill. As the last
curve at the bottom of the hill was
reached an unusually slippery spot
caused the machine to skid in a wido
curve, throwing the rear wheels into
the deep ruts at the edge of the road.
The occupants were wholly unpre
pared. One of the rearwheels, striking
a boulder, partially concealed by snow
and ice, with terrific force was com
pletely torn off, the r'ear axle snapping
in half and turning the car on its side.
All the occupants, with the exception
of Read, were dashed out violently,
while Mrs. Barnes, who sat on the side
where the wheel had been ripped out,
was thrown fully 20 feet through the
air, striking head first on the frozen

Her skull had been fractured, and she

badly bruised and cut. Mr. Barnes was
only slightly injured. All three were

Lincoln D. Robbins of 71 Chestnut
street, Saugus, was returning from the
motor boat show with three employees
of Robbin's garage in Lynn.
As Robbins repeated the matter to
Supt. Herbert Wast of the Metropolitan
Park police, he mistook a curve in the
road for a fork, and drove straight
ahead into the curb. As the car struck
the sidewalk with terrific force, a front
tire exploded. The machine was thrown
into the air. turned turtle and dashed
through the fence on the outside of the
curve, landing on the Carter street
playground on the other side.
McFarland and Carter were pinned
under the car, Robbins and Harrington
were thrown out, but went at once to

THE WIREWORM PEST.
Rptation of crops and fnll plowing
which will lneak up their nests, seem
to be the only effective inethods of
combating the wireworms. which have
como to he a verltahle scourgo of the
corn crop in man.v sectlons of tho corn
belt. Tlie reaou for this ls that they dc
not becoine Inactlve, as do cutworms,
ln the early sunmier. Iiut contlnue e'at
Ing in and ahmit tho roots of the corn
plants through practically all of the
growlng season. So bad have these
wlroworms been in some fields thnt
as hlgh ns tlfteen or twenty of thera
havo been found working ln a single
hill. In n majortty of cases tho pres
enco of the pest is nature's mute pro
test at n wrong method of crop growlng.
