It is remarked that the eqalpmeni of railroads with the best poseib ap pliaoces for the protection of life and property, such as the federal govern ment is new about to compeL will «-ost a i'reat deal of money No donbt that is true. Th" spokesman of ■ committee representing two hundred operating co-n jmiiies. with l!ts.<">o miles of lines. •■">■_'.«•<»<» locomotives and 2.000,000 cars — 'he vast majority of all the roads in the I 'nited StaJPf— is reported as estimating Ihe <*o-t at SfCtijOOO.OUO. That is an interesting buatri'jution to expert information up >v the fsabject. but it is certainly not to be regarded as an objection i.i or ai anru mem agaiust the reform ■ iii<-;i is being ordered, or :A> a serious obstacle to it. if it has any particular argumentative :.■:•,! it is for rather than against the reform, ulcoe it really indicates not hew lnm-li *i«.it how liu'e it ■rill cost.

But even if the reforms were costly in proportion to other items of railroad Mnaneo, they should none the less be re quired. One speaker at last week's hearing rightly declared that they were merely matters of safety to employes and the public, and should be regarded as matters of necessity ami not of need less or avoidable expensed And what ever expense they may entail Is to be approved on the principle that an Indus ity hi rightly required to bear the cost of preventing preventable injuries, if in deed it is not. as men are coming more .Mid more to hold, to bear the cost of all injuries net caused by the intent or the inexcusable negligence of the vio llms. Ii ma.. be that the chief bene ficiaries Of the reforms will be the em ployes of the railroads, and indeed they H^'in Id 4iave the most need of protec tion. For among the 123,000 victims of railroad accidents In this country in 1907 more than 02,000 were, employes That means that more than «> per ce-it of employes were injured by accident*. Such destruction of life and limb and property as statistics reveal, through generally preventable accidents and through vorrcetable defects in operation, would be cheaply got rid of at far greater cost than that which is now esti mated. TIRED AND LOS ELY. With such an executive a* Mr. Dix, this state at least would have a rest from crude experiment, from irrespon sible Riopmp after the unattainable, from rash ventures into the wholly un known.—New York Times. Since January i. 1007. Charles B. Hdgfles has been Governor of this state. "The Times" supported him when he was first rieeled. in IM6L and «l-o supported him when be was elected again. In 1008. It said two years aeo that not a single sound reason could be found why Gover nor Hughes should not be re-elected. We are astonished to bear, therefore, that In "The Times?" opinion the Hughes ad ministration was marked by "crude ex periment," •'irresponsible groping after the unattainable" and "rash ventures into the wholly unknown." The Hughes administration accom plished some \.t;. substantial reforms. It amended the insurance law? so as ?.. prevent a repetition of the scandal* :tr.<v>vered by the investigation of 1906. It viKvr«\ied In passing * law putting t!.«« public service corporations under the supervision and control of two state commissions— one for New York City and th<» other for the rest of the state. It killed racetrack eamblinc and did Its heat to break up the alliance between corrupt politician* and corporations seeking legislative favor?. We have bad four yean? of progress nt Albany, in so far us Governor Hnghes could contribute to progress, his effort-* being hluder»d at all stages by the blpartison combina tion In the Legislature between Tam many and the "old guard." When and how has be plagued t he- Mate with "cr-ide experiment" and vent tin's into the wholly unknown"? It may be that "Th«» Times" feels out. of sympathy with his attempts to introduce greater freedom and directer responsibil ity in party management by urging di rect nominations. Yet in that he was making no venture Into the unknown, for over half of Hie states of the Union bare adopted the direct method of muni nations and all of them are pleased with the results. And if "The Times'' is seek ing "a rest" from that experiment, why should it pin its hopes of relief on Mr. Dix, who has been nominated on a plat form declaring in favor of state-wide direct primaries for all candidates I'm. public office. Including United states Senators? "The Haass" may feel that it needs a rest from the accomplishments of the two Hughes administrations, many of which it applauded before it was Stricken With its present weariness. If our former neighbor is tired, it is also lonely. The thing which the great ma jority of the voters don't want is what it calls *"a rest." T1 />.* OFF ixni.A. Mr. Gokbale, the prominent Indian nationalist who is now visiting this, country, is reported as saying that that empire "is m a ferment. The popula tion is ou the eve of a revolt and a "general movement of insurgency." There is no reason for discrediting his statement. it has been continued in ad vance from many authoritative sources, Indian. British and foreign. "Seething with sedition" Is a descriptive phrase which has been much employed by care ful and temperate observers, and which there i-» only too good reason to fear is quite justifiable, at least In many parts oj the empire. Mr. Gokbale's report Is. therefore, no news to us. though it is of interest as coming from such ■ source, and is highly suggestive because of the presumptive motive which has inspired its author's mission. For ihi>. fact < > <>iiceriiiu r r India*« con dition i> presaasably regarded by bim. and tertainly by many others <-\ the llKti.in Nationali<t party. ;i< cause for Ameri.an Interest, n<>t to say meddle jonicnctn. in Indian afl;iirs. It has been publicly urged thai this country should extend at least a large degree of popu lar sympathy and material ai«l to the SCatkumalbri thai Is to nay, the would be lutUipeut lllOlH'nM'iit in India, and some organised and plausible attempts i aye been made, with considerable and respectable Imk 1 1 inn, to promote a wide spread Indian revolutionary propaganda b«-re. Thin ha- been done under the specious guise of educational and philan thropic activity, but its peal object has imdeniaMjt been political and revolu tionary. Tin- condition of India a* described correctly liy Mr. Ookhale is one of th<* strongest conceivable arguments against any American meddling in th affairs of that country or encouragement of any such propaganda here as thai to which wo have referred Mr. Gokhale speaks, without exaggeration, of the Imminence of eneral insurgeiny and revolt, a memory of fifty yean tells only too tragically well what thai would mean. Wo cannot conceive that thoughtful and humane Americans would wish to incur even indirect responsibility, to even the least degree^ for another mutiny. If the empire is. Indeed, "seething with sedi tion" and th« people are planning an other uprising against their government, ibat fu«-i hi the strongest of appeals for American*! nud all others to keep bunds off. Indians often complain that they are governed mid oppressed by aliens ■wh<» do not understand them nor sjrm pstniz* with them The fact that the vast 'majority of «-ivil onVers in India are native Indian^ greatly discredits this complaint. Hut if it were entirely .-ii founded, that would be another strong argument for Americans to re frain from meddling. For if the British do not understand India and the Indians, Ikmv Immeasurably Icfs do and ..an ajnerican understand them As a mat VFW-YORK DAlil THiniXV.. STNDAV.

It la im possible to avoid resanlins India with interest and with anxiety, but that can be done without meddling by either act or word. TAhfXO II IS COMMISSION. It is doubtless true, as the special cor respondent of "The New York Evening Post' reports, that "at Rochester ;>,i ••incompetent boss, wholly destitute of ■•statesmanship, tried to run things, .with ••the result of. putting In the field a weak 'ticket, aside from the candidate tor "Governor." But, however incompetent Mr. Murphy may seem, to a supporter like "The Evening Post." in the matter of statesmanship, he la by no means in competent iv the matter of business, a* scrutiny of the business end of his ticket Will make clear. The two most Im portant offices in the state, from the point of view of a business man and con tractor like Mr. Murphy, are the Con troller and the State Engineer, jukl Mr. Murphy carefully kept these places for biinself. Mr. Murphy's activities In connection with the State Engineers office are al ready a natter of record; It will he re called that a few weeks ago, when the last Democratic state Engineer was m trial for grand larceny, his counsel, who secured his acquittal, openly charged in court that a subordinate of the State Engineer was an accomplice in the cor ruption which confessedly existed, that he was placed in the cilice by Charles F. Murphy and that he was the •col lector for Tammany." Mr. Murphy is no longer to be content with subor dinates. He has picked his old associate of the Dock Department to be State Engineer aud to have a hand in the drawing of plans and specifications for the great canal improvement work. Then he has picked for his chief financial officer of the state another loyal Tam many mar. no other than the treasurer of the Tammany Society itself. Mr. Sohmer Is a chronic Tammany office holder. whose services in the Legislature are characterized by "The . Evening Poet's* 1 "Voters' Directory*' for 1807 ;i« having been "marred by EUbeerrience to Tammany dictation." All accounts from Rochester agree thai Mr. Murphy was the absolute master of the convention, and it Is clear that be did not fail to take his own commission for his work. A "reform ticket,* of course, could not safely be headed by a professed Tammany man. but Mr. Murphy was perfectly ready to make nil necessary concessions to respectability if he could secure for himself the real power over the finances and business operations of the state. No wonder the correspondent of "The Evening Post" finds the ticket -weak." It must prove weak unless the plain people outside of this city have become reconciled to the establishment at Albany of the method* of finance and contracting which Tam many has made so notorious here. yOT WORTH THE CANDLE. Three fatal and many serious accidents marred the success of the annual auto mobile competition yesterday for the Vanderbilt Cup. That is too high a price to pay for an exhibition whose chief purpose is to minister to the speed mania and which has only a secondary interest as a factor in developing the power and endurance of automobiles. The self-propelled vehicle is one of the triumphs of modern invention. It has already demonstrated its enormous util ity both as a freight carrier and a pas senger conveyance. It helps to remove old limitations on freedom of locomotion, brings the suburbs and the country in touch with the city, encourages out door 1 if.-> and in many positive ways con tributes to the health, pleasure and con venience of the community. But its usefulness is not increased by exhibitions of speed merely for the sake of speed. Such tests as are applied at the Long Island racetrack do not help the automobile manufacturers to build better machine*. On the contrary, they stimulate an unnatural desire to turn out mere racing engines, unsulted for general use. The rapacity for speed shown on the racecourse is far above that required for use elsewhere. Power of thai sort is too dangerous to be put Into the hands of owners or chauffeurs driving on the public highways. The law forbids the reckless monopolization of the roads for automobile traffic. Ac cidents enough are bound to occur when machines are operated at a normal speed, and the true interest of the man ufacturers lies in popularizing the auto mobile and accustoming the public i<> its safe and reasonable use. Exhibitions such as the Vanderbilt Cup race were perhaps justifiable When the automobile was in the experimental stage and its possibilities were not fully tested. But that period has passed. Interest in the contest is bow centred chiefly in its character us a perilous and melodra matic spectacle, and its value as a tech nical test is practically negligible. The game is not worth the candle, It would be wise to abandon a competition dis playing at unnecessary risk the courage and endurance of the drivers rat her than the really commendable qualities of the machines.

ERAIN OF GOLDWIN SMITH Was Freely Offered for Scientific Use —Not Asked For, Says Prof. Wilder. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: The "second instalment of the "Remi niscences of Goldwln Smith" in the Octo b*t number of "HedureTt Macaaase" con tains the following sentence: "Professor Wilder has made me promise to bequeath my brain to his physiological collection. Wratever he desires I do with pleasure." The oi cninjr words must have been Wilt ten by my dear Mead in forg»tfulness of the followinsr circumstances: During- the evening of April 20, 1891. in my rooms in Cascadilla Place. Ithaca. N. V.. In the pretence of the late Henry W. Sage and Dcusjasa Hoardman, both trustees of Cor roll University, after I had stated th» de sirability of studying the brains of or derly and educated Bisons. Goldwin Smith said: "Wilder. I would as soon you bad my brain as my old hat, and I wish I had ten of them for you."* The substance of thi? declaration was recorded by me on the 26th. and it Is prob able that a copy was sent to him, but neither then nor subsequently did I de part from my rule never to make a direct request for a bequest of brain. Thai he viewed the matter seriously appears from the fact that, eight months later, on Jan uary 1. 1892. he sent me a holograph n«te accompanying a holograph copy of a let ter to his executors, directing them to de liver Its brain to me promptly after his death: that spontaneous references to the subject occur in his letters of May 2. 1836: November 6 and 17. 1302, and September 2S. 1««: and that on November 21.

But most of the essays indorsing the newspaper in It? anti-Roosereltlsn are written in the Billingsgate style, toned up a little into the primary class of intellectual vituperation. Thus "Homer Alexander," hi yesterday's issue of this sheet, was allowed to call Colonel Roosevelt a "blatherskite" and "political buccaneer. it looks as if th« newspaper .-a:- hard put to It in Its fight against RoosereH when it gives space to stuff that outrages decency. It Is very evident that the majority of the publicists who are denouncing Roose velt in th» paper referred to are "Neo- Clevelandists." The members of this politi cal sect, made up of the Cleveland "old guard." have kept the name of Cleveland, but have dropped from th*> original Cleve land creed a certain bit of wisdom uttered by Grorer Cleveland in ISS7— "It is a con dition which confronts us— not a theory.* The Neo-Clevelandist.s have put into their articles of faith that fine old fact of Bour bonism, expressed: "We forget nothing" and learn nothing;" All t!u-> «-hars-« made by the N'eo-Cieve landlsts apainsi Colonel Roosevelt can he boiled down to this on** count: HH f J has changed his mind about some tiling;.-. The Neo-derelandista hold that it is a crime to change one's mind. It is the fatal liabit of Neo-Clevciandism to stand still and look backward all the time So tin. 13 contingent of letter writer.-, in the. manner of near-sdioia.-tiiMsm, BUSSf fcreat ado of quibbling about what Roosevelt was year? ago. But the people are: not listening to the Nee-Clerelandtots. The people are taken up with the Roosevelt of to-day. The people a.-^k: "Is your programme bet ter than the RooseveH prograsßßseT' l would write this paraphrase: "The OM Orover Cleveland Guard dit>^. but never wakes up!" PHILIP R. DILLOX.

People and Social Jnctdenfj NEW YORK SOCIETY. Oceksr. which began yesterday, promises IS prove th« liveliest in year:-, from a »<• cial point of view.

Thi3 week there will be horse shows, four-ln-hand driving com petitions, steeplechases, meets of the Mea dow Brook hounds, the lons distance drive of th- New York Coaching Club, as well as a number of wedding?.

One Of the features of. the week there Wfjl be the annual Plpsng Hock horse show, perhaps the most popular aftatr of the kind in the vicinity of turn York, which attracts people from all parts of the Island, includ ing, as it does, four-ln-har.'! driving com petitions by members of the Ladles' Four in-Hand Drivins Club c.l New York, steeple chases for hunter.- and Hat races for hacks and for ponies, the professional element be ins? strictly barred from competing cither a.« riders or exhibitor--".
