Friday Morning, Jan. 23, 1880. THE JOINT STOCK LAWS. The joint stock laws of this State have served altogether too long as an aid to swind lers. By means of them it has been easy to organize and continue in existence companies whose purpose it was to deceive people in other parts of the country under cover of the good name of Oonneotiout, and to suoh an ex tent has this been done that the reputation of the State has suffered considerably thereby. The matter has been discussed for several years, and Governor Hubbard took hold of it in earnest and made a number of valuable recommendations concerning what ought to be done. Some of these recommendations are embodied in the bills just submitted by the Commission oonsisting of John S. Beach, William O. Cramp, Samuel Fessenden, Henry S. Barbour and Frederick Webster appoint ed to consider the subject of our joint stock laws. This Commission finds that since June 24, 1869, there have nominally been organized in the State 2,130 companies. Of this number 1,893 have now no legal ezistenoe, and as the first step toward reform it is recommended that they be formally wiped out by aot of the Legislature. Then, to prevent the recurrence of such abuses as have been complained of, the Commission has prepared a bill complete ly revising the joint stook laws. This bill comprises twenty-Bix sections. The following is a summary of its main features : , In the first section it stipulates that any three or more persons, a majority of whom are residents of the State, who shall express their agreement to be incorporated, may be under aDy name commencing with "The" and ending with "Company" or ' 'Oorporar tioD." Section 2 provides that two of the persons associated may call the first meeting, at such time and place as they may appoint by notioe in any newspaper published in the county, at least fifteen days before the time appointed. Section 3 says that at the first meeting by-laws for the regulation of the affairs of the corporation may be adopted and an organization shall be effected. In the fourth section it says that no associa tion under this act shall nave corporate pow ers or commence business until all the stock shall have been taken by bona fide subscrib ers and paid for in full. Seotion 5 says the directors shall cause the articles of agreement to be published in a newspaper in the county, and a majority of the directors shall swear to a certificate setting forth a true copy. Seo tion 6 is to the effect that any corporation having voted to change its name may apply to the Superior Court to have such change made, first giving notioe of such in tended application by advertisement for two weeks in a newspaper published in Hartford or New Haven, and in a newspa per published in the town. In the 7th seo tion it is stipulated that the affairs of every corporation shall be managed by three or more directors who shall be chosen annually by the stockholders. Section 11 provides that any corporation may inorease or reduce its capital stook, and the number on par value of its shares, at any meeting of the stock holders warned for that purpose, by a vote of stockholders holding at least two-thirds of the stock, provided such inorease shall all be paid for and certificates thereof shall be filed with in thirty days after such payment. In the following seotion it says the president and treasurer shall on or before the 15th day of February or of August, lodge with the town clerk a certificate signed and sworn to by them, showing the condition of its affairs as nearly as the same can be ascertained on the first day of December or January, or on the first day of June or July preceding the tine of making such certificate. Section 23 states that when any corporation shall have failed for two successive years to make the annual statement, tbe Superior Court shall be ap plied to for a dissolution thereof, whioh court, after due notioe to all parties interested, may prooeed to hear the matter, and for reasonable cause decree a dissolution. It certainly is not too much to ask that those who take advantage of the privileges offered by the State for the formation of joint stock companies shall give satisfactory proof that they have aotually put in the capital they pre tend to have put in, and that they shall make at stated periods a showing of their finanoial oondition. These two requirements, properly enforced, will do a great deal to relieve Con necticut of tbe reputation of helping rogues by her joint stock laws. While the bill, as it now stands, provides for a great improvement upon the old order of things, it does not embody some of the recommendations of Governor Hubbard which he strenuously urged, and whioh many would have been glad to see incorporated in it. For instance, the reoommendation that stockholders of corporations should be per sonally liable jointly and severally for all labor claims against such corporations. The Hart ford Post, in commenting on this branch of the subject, says : "No reason is offered for rejecting this important ohange ; whioh is to be regretted, for the recommendation as put by Governor Hubbard was very generally ac cepted as wise and timely. Why the partners in these corporations should not be severally liable for labor performed for their benefit, can, perhaps, be shown in a way to oommand acquiescence. It may be said that it would establish a bad principle by giving the laborer higher claims than other creditors ; but it oan be answered that there are good reasons for doing so. The worker is generally too con fiding to discover danger and too poor to pro tect himself in case of failure ; while the bus iness man is sharp enough to take care of himself. ' Besides, the prinoiple of discrimi nating in favor of labor has already been es tablished in builders' liens and other enact ments." The Post also calls attention to an other point concerning whioh nothing was done by the Commission, namely, the rights of minorities in corporations. As the law is, the holders of one share less than half are absolutely at the mercy of the holders of one share more than half, and it has happened that the minority have been swindled by the majority because under the law they were un able to protect themselves. The Commission presents another bill pro viding for the appointment of a Commission er of Corporations, whose duty it shall be to see that corporations comply with the laws, and thus a much needed reform is at last in a fair way of being accomplished. EDITORIAL NOTES. The ioe crop lhas failed, and the prospect for peaches is poor. The unfortunate Bocklanders are well de fended in another column on this page. They have been sadly abused. The Boston Advertiser may or may not be getting ready to come out for General Grant, but it oan see nothing to object to in a third term for any good President. Out of 1,000 "old reliable Republicans" whom the Cincinnati Gazette has interviewed, 570 declare for Sherman, 220 for Blaine and 128 for Grant, with the rest scattering. The Philadelphians are organizing a lobby to aid in getting through Congress a bill dividing among the stockholders of the Gen tennial Exhibition the loan made by the United States of a million of. dollars, which was repaid into the treasury.. They have sever felt easy about paying this honest debt - If.the accounts from central ana southern Bussia are to be believed, the corn beetle, which may be ranked as first cousin to the Colorado potato beetle, has been committing fearful ravages there, displaying a healthiness of appetite which bode ill for the future ag ricultural prosperity of that region.' The pest has been spreading ever since 1866, and the damage wrought last year in the districts of Pultowa, Ekaterinoslay, Saratoff, Kherson and the provinces of the Don was equal to 15,000,000 roubles. : Neglect and idleness have allowed the destroyer to multiply so fast that it will be very difficult now to check him. Wherever the ground has been dug up, enor mous quantities of ohrysalides have been found, which in spring will turn into beetles. Alaska may not be a paradise, but if Mr. John Muir, who writes to the San Francisco Bulletin concerning it, is correctly informed, it is not worthless. Mr. Muir says : "We have reason to warrant the opinion that Alas ka will be found at least moderately rich in the precious metals, and that gold-mining, notwithstanding the disadvantages of cli mate, heavy vegetation and beds of glacial drift, will oome to be regarded as one of the most important and reliable of her resources.' The disclosures made at the inquest in the ease of a New York man who died after eat ing of a lemon meringue pie are rather inter esting reading. The chemist who analyzed what was left of the pie told the coroner's jury that in the yellow filling of it he found a dye possessing strong 'acid properties to the amount of four centigrammes to the ounoe. The dye was It strong aniline yellow, used for dying wooL He proved its poison ous qualities by administering a portion to a dog, wbioh exhibited symptoms of acid poi soning. The dye formed one per cent, of the interior of the pie. Another chemist testified that he found traces of the same dye discov ered in the pie in the stomach and liver of the dead man. The baker who sold the poison ous pies said that he used carmine for color ing cakes and jellies but not in pies, and he professed to believe that the poison was pat in the pies by an enemy. In his last letter from Paris to the New York Evening Post Edward King gives some ac count of a remarkable article written for the Positivist Review by M. Iittre. In the arti cle M. Iiittre lays down broadly rules for the future guidanoe of the French republic's for eign policy. He does not mince matters at all ; he tells his fellow-countrymen fairly and squarely that they no longer can consider France a great power ; that there are but three countries left in Europe which are really first class powers ; and that they are Bussia, Eng land and Germany. He considers that the first Frenoh republic succeeded in completing the projeot which had always been Btnbborn ly pursued by the old monarchies in France, that of extending the frontiers in the direc tion of the Rhine and toward the north. Iut now that all the advantages which had been gained only after oenturies of aggression have been irreparably lost by the First and Third Napoleons, whom M. Littre considers to have been the soourges of France, and by a series of overwhelming disasters which, to use his own sweeping language, were only accom plished because of the incredible and fortuit ous combination of all the most criminal of follies in one moment at one point, and under one government, the oountry must no longer think of extending her boundaries by attack ing her immediate neighbors. She has, thinks the venerable philosopher and republican, a much better field and more glorious mission in devoting herself frankly to building up her negleoted colonies, and in opening new ones in Africa and elsewhere. He thinks the chanoes for the revival of the English alliance which Louis Philippe had well established are very good, and pointB out that commercial in tercourse and the liberal institutions of the two oountries are doing muoh for this. He announoes his firm belief that it is for the good of all Frenchmen henceforth to under stand that they belong to a second-class pow er, and to shau European entanglements by every means in their grasp. He recommends the democracy to have as little as it conven iently oan to do with the conduot of the coun try's foreign policy, but to commit it to sound men, and then to give them time to carry it oat undisturbed. It will be strange if tho Frenchmen follow suoh good advioe as this. HARD LINES. PIOTUBES ON BSF. It seems a rich and royal feast, A dream of the voluptuous east.

The entire seotion of oountry in and about Rockland was in time past far more populous than it is now, and it has long been considered a "good plaoe to emigrate from," on account of the unfer tile soil and broken surface. It does not now contain perhaps more than half the inhabitants which lived among the hills fifty or sixty years ago. The descend ants of the fathers are scattered far and wide, and many among them are now prominent as professional or business men. Among the earliest emigrants from this vicinity were the ancestors of Alexander H. Stephens and Jefferson Davis, who lived, curiously enough, within a few miles of each other one in Rockland and the other just over the town line in Killingworth. During the late war a detailed account was published to this effeot, giving names and dates, and I have special reason to believe it to be cor rect. Many persons bearing ihese names, and remotely connected, still remain. Wheth er "old Ben" is one of tbem, deponent saith not. The hardy stock has sent forth vigor ous offshoots. But as a matter of simple justice it should be said that there are few if any hamlets like Rockland, whose people have done and still do as much, in proportion to their ability, to maintain morality and religion amoDg them. They have, as we know, a church, respectable in appearance and size, a comfortable parson age and regular ministerial services. It may be said that "they have done what they oould," and I do not hesitate to affirm that the people of Rookland and vicinity are as free from vioe and vioious induiKOboe a the most favored parts of our State. They are gener ally industrious, hard-working, shrewd and God-fearing. The sum paid in money by them for minis terial services is small indeed, but it must be remembered that the cost of living there is also smaller than elsewhere, and that the slender salary is eked out in many friendly ways. The minister should and doos share with his people, who extort from the reluct ant soil or wrest from the forest the means of subsistence. Tramps and jail birds have seldom found a recruit among them, and to the offioers of the law, till recently, Rockland has been an al most unknown region. It must be said that the latest fashions are sadly unappreciated, but the natives are good judges of oharacter for practical purposes, whether in broadcloth or homespun. I have rambled on at some length, but be fore closing permit me to speak of some things which are on my mind in connection with the late trial regarding the treatment of witnesses by counsel, as it appeared to an unprofession al listener in the oourt room. It mast be right to test to the utmost the knowledge of experts so as to estimate correctly the value of such testimony without slurs, mean insin uations and abuse for these gentlemen are educated, disciplined and acute, and should know certainly whereof they affirm. But how is it with witnesses from the more com mon walks of life, especially sensitive women who against their inclinations are required to give evidence ? Should they not be exempt from the bulldozing, terrifying style of cross examination to which some of them were subject during the late trial. Mrs. Hayden, I think it is admitted, was treated with con sideration and kindness as a rule. Why should there have been any exceptions? What decent excuse can be given for tho con duct of oounsel,in summing in the final plea, for singling out one or two women who were assailed with low blackguardism and vulgar ridicule on account of their personal appear ance. If a man strikes a woman and inflicts pain or injury, even under provocation, we say he is inhuman; if without provocation, we call him a brute by common consent. How shall we characterize the aot of counsel who wantonly caricatures a woman suffering from ill health, a reluotant witness, without reproach and irreproachable in character? Are the feelings of suoh a woman of no ac count, and are sueh acts of counsel those of gentlemen? These shocking meannesses, with other abuses and relics of ruder times, let us hope will be sloughed off from legal procedure as we become more humane and Christian in the "good time coming." C. L. B. Rockland A Plea for its Inhabitant. To the Editor of the Joubnal and Courier : Will you suffer a word in behalf of the peopls of this abused locality, whose misfor. tune it is to have achieved a wide and unde- aired notoriety In connection with the Hayden trial. The notion has in some way been ex tensively circulated through this community that the inhabitants of this section are as a rule coarse, degraded and immoral, and that therefore each evidenoe as they might give in the case should be received with suspicion. I may say that 1 know that this impression regarding the oharacter of the Rookland com munity is wide of the truth and cruelly un just. It was my privilege when a boy to visit the plaoe frequently, and among the most pleas ant memories of youthful days are those of the time spent in their hospitable homes, in the huts of tbe charcoal burners while watch ing ooal pits, in hunting and fishing, or pick ing blackberries and huckleberries which grow here in immense fields and in the great est perfection. It is now well known that this seotion is ex ceedingly rough and rooky. , High ridges and precipitous ledges enclose scant meadows and a small amount of arable land. From some of the highest points I used to be delighted with the fine views of green forests, with Long Island. Sound in the distance, upon whioh white sails were drifting back and forth. The acquaintance of childhood among the people there baa been continued, and at inter vals of a few years I have been glad to quit the highways of busy life in the oity for a brief sojourn in the semi -solitude of this rus tic community. I have thus come to know some of the people there, and am familiar with the quaint and primitive ways and language of the elderly natives. Yon oan find here perhaps the best examples of the old-fashioned New England dialect. Nature has been a rugged foster mother, and the children are hardy, self-reliant and sometimes hard-fa- Election of Judges. From the Hartford Oour&nt. On Tuesday two amendments to the Consti tution relating to the choice of judges, which were passed by tbe House last year, were re ferred to the Committee on Constitutional Amendments. The first provides that "Judges of the Supreme Oourt of Errors and of the Superior Court shall upon nomination of the Governor be appointed by the General Assem bly in . such manner as shall by law be pre scribed." The second makes the same pro visions as to Courts of Common Pleas and District Courts. These amendments were recommended by the State Bar Association, and at its meeting yesterday that association directed its committee, one of whom is the Hon. R. D. Hubbard, to appear before the committee of tbe General Assembly and pre sent its views. Five States of the Union elect judges by the General Assembly. They are, 'Jounecticut, Knode island, south Carolina, Vermont and Virginia. Ten States choose by Governor and Council or Governor and Senate. They are Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mas sachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Michigan, Delaware, Maine. Most of these ten States have courts of the highest character. The people of Connecticut do not change their organic laws for light reasons. But there is a great dissatisfaction with our mode of selecting judges. The proposed amendments do not take the appointing pow er away from the General Assembly. They do take the nominating power from an irre sponsible party caucus and lodge it with tbe Governor, who will be responsible. It is to be hope4 that every member will fully inform himself of the facts relating to the subject. A full discussion of a matter so important is to be desired. The people have the most di rect interest in tbe ability, learning and high charaoter of their courts. Many States eleot judges by popular vote. New York is one of these. The Oourt of Appeals of that State stands high, but there is complaint as to many of their elected judges. Judges of the courts of the United States have been celebrated for learning and independence. They are nomi nated by the President and oonfirmed by tbe Senate. Constitutional amendments which may be approved by the Legislature will go to the people with muoh more force and weight if they are fully discussed while pend ing before that body. Platform of the New YorkScrs&tclie-rei. I. Independent Republicans adhere to the Republican principles of national supremacy, sound finance and civil service reform, ex pressed in the Republican platform of 1876,in the letter of acceptance of President Hayes, and in his message of 1879, and they seek the realization of those principles in practical laws and their efficient administration. This requires : 1. The continuance on the statute book of laws protecting the rights of voters at nation al elections. But national supremacy affords no pretext for interference with the local rights of communities, and the development of the South from its present defective civ ilization oan be secured only under constitu tional methods, such as those of President Hayes. 2. The passage of laws wbioh shall deprive -greenbacks of their legal tender quality, as a first step toward their ultimate withdrawal and cancellation, and shall maintain all coins made legal tender, at such weight and fine ness as will enable them to be used without discount in the commercial transactions of the world. 4 3. The repeal of the acts whioh limit the terms of office of certain government officials to four years ; the repeal of the tenure of office aots, which limit the power of the execu tive to remove for cause ; the establishment of a permanent civil service commission, or equivalent measures, to ascertain by open competition and certify to the president or other appointing power the fitness of appli cants for nomination or appointment to all non-political offioes. II. Independent Republicans believe that local issues should be independent of party. The words Republican and Democrat should have no weight in determining whether a school district or a city Bhall be administered on business principles by capable men. With a view to this, legislation is asked which shall prescribe for the voting for local and for State offioers upon separate ballots. IU. Independent Eepublioans assert that a political party is a corporation among voters to secure the practical enactment into legisla tion of political oonviotions set forth as its platform. Every voter accepting that plat form is a member of that party ; any repre sentative of that party opposing the princi ples or evading the promises of its platform forfeits the support of its voters. No voter should be held by the aotion or nomination of any caucus or convention of his party gainst his private judgment. It is his duty to vote against bad measures and unfit men as the only means of obtaining good ones, and if his party no longer represents its professed principles in its practical workings, it is his duty to vote against it. IV. Independent Republicans seek good nominations through participation in the primaries, and through the defeat of bnd nominees ; they will labor for the defeat of any local Republican candidate, and, in co operation with those holding like views else where, for the defeat of any general Republi can candidate whom they do no, deem fi.
