''hle President has signed the bill pro
viding for a new department, known as
the departmdnt of commerce. It is very <
well understood that the portfolio will be I
tendered to the President's Secretary, I
Mr. Geo. B. Cortelyou. If it were
possible, it would not be a bad move to I
make Mr. Roosevelt the head of the I
new department of commerce, and to I
let Secretary Cortelyou succeed his I
chief. But there is no way to save the <
country from Roosevelt for a while yet. a
'I'his is the last week of the present
session of the Legislature. At least,
after Saturday night the pay stops, and
there is hardly ally doubt that the
makinr of laws will stop at the same
1.im1e. Many good measur "s have passed,
and some of the best ha:- failed. We
had hoped to see this ILegis;,tture have
three important laws to its eelil pro
hibiting chihl labor in Ihe .nills, pro
viding for building roads by taxation,
and requiring the attendanice of chil
lren tlpull the schools. Of these three,
only the one ptrohibiting child labor got
through. liut this in itself is a great
st ride forwaiI, and we atnide in the
hope t hat the. two others will come
We confess that we do not see what
good 'T'illmnali can accomplish by such

aid in keeping ol aunt'her such state of

It is reportel loim Washington that

Ic said in part.:
"I cannot understand why I should
iave been the only representative of
