In which he. lias performed ran- wrvlceis and made Md au impression n« few men have ever made In the employment of the state, it has lMsxtiuc the custom to point to him without fear of contradic tion as the ideal superintendent at imnVlng. Ills reputation has spread throughout -the country, where his ad ministration has been generally recog nized as a model for other states to follow. His transfer from the depart ment in which he has made such a suc cess to the coutrollership is an indica tion th.it in tin* «*overnor's opinion the Hanking Department is completely re organized and that the Controller's otllcc, needs the same kind of reorganization. Mr. Willlams's appointment follows close upon Attorney General <>'MaUey'< opinion that the (IdVcntur's appointee will serve till January 1. Hit. There never appeared to lie much force in th • objection that the (Joreruor could till the vacancy only till the first of next year.

The public will be pleasantly affected at the thought of railway men meeting at a public dinner to celebrate, among other things, tin parsing of the rebate 'l here is a controversy which is settled apparently to the delight of every one. And yet it does not take a long memory to recall the time when the rebate had its defenders in railway circles. Tin* prautiug of lower rates to large shippers was* excused ujKtu the same principle upon which wholesale prices are Justi fied. The handling of trade was said to l»e more profitable and cheaper in the case of large shippers than of small, and Interference with this arrangement was declared to lie an unwarrantable attack oil the freedom of business. All torts of predictions were made regard ing the dire c.iuse<pjeuce« that would spring from such Interference. It is. iKTbap*. worth while to recr.ll this earlier agitation on this cheerful occasion merely to jog the memory of infallibility. If a mistake could be made about the consequences- of ending re bates, perhaps a mistake may be made about the consequences of some of the other reforms the public is meditating — • the regulation of stock issues, lor ex aniple. More than one speaker on Wednesday night signified his distress at the fact that the public has this id<"-i in mind. Hut who would be so ttold as to predict Uiat five or MM years after the regulation of capitalization hud be come the public policy there would not be -a dinner of railway men to celebrate the passing of the "old and evil day? of stock watering"? DEUOCRATIC REORGANIZATION. Preparations for naming New York County's MC, representatives on the executive committee of the new Pomo cratic State League are welcome to those who want to see the I Him m rift i. party hero regain its character a* an organiza tion conducted for legitimate public purposes. There was a good deal of talk at the Saratoga "regeneration" confer ence of a return to Democratic prin ciples, and the conference subscribed to c-ertain views of national and local ques tions which It de-bred to be Democratic. Vet it is manifestly of far less impor tance to commit the Democracy in this state to certain declarations of policy than it is to reorganize the party so that its i»ollcles, whatever they are. will represent the ideas and wishes of the Democratic -voters. What the l>einocratic party in New York needs most is to be liberally inocu lated with the spirit of democracy. It is to-day about the least democratic In stitution imaginable under a system of free popular government. Jefferson's fundamental id"-as in ]toliti<-s were popu lar povereiguty. the rule of the majority and government with the full consent of the governed, lie believed that power should come from the mass and I* 1 e\er clsed in the iuter.st of those by whom it was delegated. He was Opposed to all thoo<-rati<\ oligarchical and autocratic forms of control, holding that the ma jority in a Ktat^or ■ ■ parly was filter 1.. rul<» than any leader or group of leaders set over it. Yot in this city tho organization whi«h calls itself Hepubli can-PeuiucratJe, thus <-laiining to trace its liueagi* back direct to Jefferson and bis associates, is thoroughly ltussian In Its repression jiml absolntfom, Tammany Hall is an autocracy ruled from the top. It has no MmM or wishes ox'-ept, those of its temporary loader, and its only remedy against incaMseltj or uudtio tyranny on the leader's part i.-* his dli» jihuvineut and the SUbstltUtlpn of an other master.

It Is surprising to read in a Washing ton dispatch to 'The Memphis Commer cial-Appeal" that the Payne tariff law has proved a failure as n proQucer of revenue. The writer of the dispatch tct'ius to think that lie clinches the mat tet- when he says: The Payne-Aldrich tariff law- is not >i eld ing the revenues predicted by it* frsmers. There is a deficit for the four months of this fiscal year of nearly What he neglected to see or to note was that the delicit or nearly $!'*.<'<'"•. 000 for the first four months of the pres ent fiscal year is $12,000,000. or 331-3 l»er cent, less than the deficit for the first four mouths of the last fiscal year, wheu the Diugley law was still opera tive. That pain shows that the change has been for the better, and a far greater improvement would have beeu apparent if Congress had not increased the expen ditures of the first four months of this year about $10,000,000 over the total for the sail*- period la*t year. The Payne law is raising much more revenue than the l)inpley law raised tho year before. From July 1 to November 1 customs receipts have increased $25,000. 000 and internal revenue receipts $5,000. 000 over the figures for U>os. Tlie from its of the Payne bill did not expect it to raise enough revenue to pay all the Treasury's obligations In IDOU-'JO. They pledged Congress to reduce the appro priations for IMO-'ll and 1011-U2, and merely predicted that if a cut of $30, (•Gu.OOi) in exi>enses could be made tho new law would by 1012 bring in enough to meet current charges. It must be re membered that at the beginning of the next fiscal year the corjwation tax will become available. There will probably be a deficit on June 30, 1910, but after that, with a slight decrease in federal outlay, the government will have little trouble in gradually reversing the bal ance. The l*ayne law has been so far not a failure, but a pronounced success, as a revenue producer. ru SGI STI Mi A\D DAMOmOVM. The tragic ending of an hypnotic rarve ■how in a nearby New Jersey town should mean the prompt and titial end ing, by j»ro<"e!iß of law, «>f all such ex hibitions.

The Chinese government has announced Its plaus for the election of the Imperial parliament, which was promised some time ago as an essential part of the eoostltutioiiM! il ! representative system gradually to bo established in the em pire, and is now taking mm necessary steps for their fulfilment. That does i.ot mean, however, that the parliament is to be established at once, or even tl»at a general election for it Is to occur next year. The bjmb)ml of constitutional .i velopment provides for the advent of an imperial parliament in 1017, and it is to l,e expected that it will appear then, and ii. it before that time. One of the most Important steps toward I hiit end has been the election ami organization "1 prdrlncJal legislate ores, or assemblies. This was done la«t liKiliHi, and on October 11 those bodies met ii -nil ll.'- twenty-two provinces of tho empire. They vary In size from ll«j inenitars In « lii-li and 114 in C'be-klan;; to *» onch in Klrln and HMn-klang. They :i|.|«'iu at present to l»o deliberative nnrl consultative bodJc* rather than art ual lawmaker?, l>ut Mien* is littl.- «lt»uht that their iwwers will be lucrrased is time Bhows their fitness for higher work. 'A function of th.-.« provincial legislat ures will !h' to prorldo fit men for tho Imperial parliament. Indeed, the m.-in bers of tho latter body will be largely, if not entirely, drafted from them. It» that particular China is following closely the? successful example uf Japan, where it w>i!i long 1 *" noted that "the ex i >. Tien-* "gained in provincial legislatures ad "uiiraftly trains men for service in th.^ •'Imperial parliament." The result will Ik; that when, the Chinese imperial par liament finally is opened it will be com 1.-osed not of noviec» Hit of parliament ary veterans. In thus udoptlng the constitution step by step and carefully preparing in ad vance for each successive ttep China has promise of greater success and of less disturbance than there would probably have been in an attempt to adopt n com plete; constitutional system nil at one**, after the* manner of Russia and Persia. It will be far better to wait until 1917 for a complete representative system an 1 then have. it adopted 'without conflict or friction and put Into efficient operation than it would be to promulgate it at once and then spend the next ten years In wrangling over it and making more or less futile efforts to determine just what it mount. Whatever may happen, no ono will believe the Democratic reorganizes known to the ungodly as "the Saratoga Chips" to be capable of directing any "M. A M. " at "Charlie." Murphy or at "Fingey" Conner*. "Tho New Orleans Times-Democrat" complains that it can find no evidence to support Mr. Gompers'B contention that the union labor voto in 11X>S "saved the "Democratic party from utter, crushing "oblivion." We were willing" to concede that Mr. Gompers's heroic work for the Democratic tlckot assured Its success In Louisiana, Mississippi, Tans, Arkansas and Alabama.

There ia said to be no doubt that the deadly outbreak of cholera in Germany Is attributabls to the pollution of the water of the Memel River by raftsmen. The theory Is certainly plausible, and it suggests the serious danger, which Is always involved In the vse of water which is subject to such contamination. If the sewage from a few rafts could cause such an epidemic, what might not be feared from the use of water from a stream into which the sewage of whole cities had been poured. That joy ride which ended in a smash In Lonp Island will afford nn excellent opportunity to send some one to Jail for taking out the automobile without its owner's consent.

It appears that a Prauleln Kohler, a solo dancer, was prevented by Illness from tak ing the part which she usually dances, and this was given to an understudy whoso performance was so highly satisfactory that she was asked to take the part again when the opera was produced the next time.

Sir* Thank you for putting % "The Char lotte Observer" right on the salary of tha highest paid preaqher in the United State*, the Hon. William Howard Taft. Seventy five thousand dollars a year may be con sidered large pay for a preacher, but tak ing into account the size and the financial strength of his congregation it is a modest stipend. Besides, the congregation Is per suaded that the preacher earn.-> and Is well worth all he gets. Indeed, many of his flock are ready to vote another advance. II F. KASTENDIECK. Floral Park, Long Island. Nov. 9. 1500. THE BREAKFAST TABLE TREAT. To the Kditor of The Tribune. Sir: After the price of "The Spectator" was raised from three and a half cents to four many of its readers wrote to the edi tor expressing regret for the advance. "You have deprived me." said one. "of the best part of my break Since the rise of my paper I am forced every morn- Ing to drink my dish of coffee by itself without the addition of 'The Spectator.' which used to be better than rum to it." A large family of daughters drew up a very handsome remonstrance In which they set forth that their father having refused to take in "The Spectator" since the additional price was set upon it they "offered unanimously to bate him the arti cle of bread and butler in the tea table account provided 'The Spectator* might be served up to them every morning as usual." ■I am wondering. Mr. Editor, whether, besides the tmmka you have already re ceived for lowering the price of The Tribune from three cents to one. you have thought of the many breakfast tables to which you may have contributed a new and welcome treat — how many "T. W's" can now have an aromatic with their eof- I** and how many Arabellas raspberry jam or orange marmalade with their tea biscuit: a. B. rittsfield. Mass.. Nov. 10. 1905. NEW POLICY APPROVED. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I want to compliment The Tribune on its policy of reducing Its price to one cent. I have been an admirer of The Trib une since the days of Horace Greeley. and Its dignity and fairness stand out in contrast with other daily papers that I could name It gives the news in an at tractive way and its editorials, always worth reading, seem to be even better than ever under Its new form. I am glad that it will now reach a wider circle of readers. as undoubtedly it will now that It is a one-cent paper. 1 believe the day of high er priced papers is passing. WILLIAM MONTGOMERY.
