The direct primary movement has
more to It than the determination to
return to the people their constitu
tional power to select for themselves
their political rulers. That la a very
Important feature of it but In addition
and of equal Importance is its desire
to have aspirants for office tell the
nominators in advance for what they
stand and what policies oX govern
ment they represent. Under such a
direct primary act as the special Con
necticut commission reported to this
General Assembly it would be impos
. sible for a dummy to undertake a can
vass for the office of governor for ex
ample. We call attention to this purpose of
the direct primary movement because
of the lively discussion in certain
quarters over the successor of Gov
ernor Woodruff. If the public prints
are to be trusted the task of selecting
the man has been completed; ail is
over but the shouting. Congressman-at-Large
Lilley of Waterbury coyly
admits that he is in the hands of his
friends and that if the Republican
party of the State of Connecticut de
sires hfm to run for governor and
says so in convention assembled he is
, ready to make the race. This is
somewhat like the attitude of Mr.
,, Benedict of Greenwich, who at one
time aspired to the Democratic nomln-
i ation for governor. He softly denied
being an aggressive candidate, but as
"lite" Bromley dbserved at the time,
should he be taktng a constitutional
walk some morning after breakfast
when it was known that the nomln-
atton was abroad and their paths con
verged Mr. Benedict would not be the
one to dodge the convergence. This is
exactly Mr. Lllley's attitude, with this
difference, that while keeping one eye
on the constitutional habits of the
Republican nomination he keeps an
other on Lieutenant Governor Lake of
Hartford, to whom he concedes only
two supporters, former State Senator
Allan W. Paige of Bridgeport and for-
1 mer State Tax Commissioner Frank
E. Healy of Windsor Locks, deposed.
Assuming, ' as Congressman LIHey
does, that he is to be the next governor
of Connecticut, it is in order to ask
respectfully a few logical questions
which have not been asked before be
cause his candidacy was more or less
a matter of speculation. It is not a
question of the good fellowship of the
gentleman nor of his personal popu
larity. Those are qualities which
would have an influence with the
working of the direct primary princi
ple but they' would not determine
alone. It Is desirable to know, for
example, what the forces are
back of Mr. Lilley which make
him and his friends so confident yot
success? With a direct .primary law it
Would be necessary for these forces to
disclose themselves. In the absence of
that law how is the voter to dete-mlne
tha: Mr. Lilley is the best man in the
State for the office of governor two
years hence? We have seen no popular
demand for hiSnomination though there
are no end of powerful political lead
ers who favor him. Could they so con-
fidently tredict his nomination or the
nomination of any other man if they
were obliged to shoulder the publicity
which must precede an effective use of
the direct primary law? They not only
cnuld not, but the fact cannot be over
locked that (he very confidence these
mn l ave In their ability to nominate
any man they want, whether he spells
his name Lilley or Lake, proceeds from
their skU and experience in controlling
the nominating convention, and it is
tha dominating influence of that ma,-
chine power which the advocates of the
direct primary reek to destroy, not for
the purpose of substituting themselves
for the powers deposed but for the pur
pose Of reviving actual self-government
under the" terms of which the
people do their own bossing. It is the
bold appearance of the Lilley boom a
year and a half before he can take of
fice If elected which adds significance
to the direct primary principle
The Journal and Courier expresses no
solicitude for nor opposition to the am
bition of Mr. Lilley in this connection.
It agrees that he Is a charming fellow,
but it cannot on that account close its

created by his cocksure candidacy, In
view of the contention that this is a lit
tle republic, governed by Republican
traditions and principles. If there ever
was a time in the history of the State
when the people should do a little nom
inating It is now.. They have seen a.
wide open breach separate a Republi
can governor, advocating important re
form principles, from a Republican leg
islature opposing those principles. If
the party refuses to renominate the
man now in the office of governor be
cause he had a will of his own, should
it not undertake to nominate a man
whose views are known upon one side
or the other of that controversy? We
ask this question in, no idle mood of
curiosity but upon the theory that this
is a government by the people. If so,
they have a right to know where their
candidate stands utterly beside his
personal charms and individual popu
larity. Now that it is known that Mr.
Lilley is to be the nominee, is it ask
ing too much for him to give his opin
ion of the record as written during the
past few months? He ought to be glad
to. The columns of this newspaper are
his for that opfnlon.

"By the way," asks the Louisville
Courier-Journal, "what use has so small
d State as Connecticut for 252 lawmak
ers? There mUst be a scheme there to
on 1 every citizen of the majority par
ty to the legislature at least once dur
ing his life, and this may account for
the few that &e re-elected."
What use has the State of Connecti
cut for sj many lawmakers? Much
use, and a right use. The number Is In
accordance with the Connecticut idea,
and also the Courier-Journal's own
Idea, that the power is tn the people. If
large part of the population of a
State is elected to the legislature the
supposition is that the people will be
si well and thoroughly represented
there that they will get about the kind
of legislation they want and deserve.
We don't say that the theory has al
ways worked Just as It ought to, but it
is a sound theory. It may also be added
that In the multitude of counsellors
there Is safety. As to the failure to re
elect many of the members of the leg.
lslature, that Is easy. Some don't want
to go back, and the constituents don't
want to have others go back.
When does an Infant cease to be an
Infant? This Interesting and Important
question is raised by a bulletin of the
Census bureau which tells about the
tin-plate infant. In 1890, sixty million
American users of tinware were de
pendent for their supply on the tin
plate trust of South Wales and Mon
mouthshire. Practically all of the tin
plate then used In the United States
was Imported. The McKlnley duty gave
the first good chance for Its production
here. Tin-plate mills Were Immediately
started under the shelter of this In
creased tax on the Welsh article, and
though the existence of these estab
lishments was long and stoutly denied
by the opposing press and politicians,
the industry did take root here and
flourished prodigiously in Pennsyl.
vanla, Indiana and other central and
mldwestern States. The tin-plate mills
of America represented, In 1900, a cap
ital of $27,488,000, which had increased
in 1905 to $32,457,000. The output of this
Industry, which was valued at $61,912,-
000 In 1900,. had Increased to $65,679,000
In 1905. There were forty-four differ
ent establishments, employing seven
teen thousand wage-earners.
Probably this Infant doesn't think It
can go alone now, and perhaps it nev
er will think that it can. The United
Plates has some very robust and quite
mature Infants.
It Is a little late, but it has just

It is a short story, but it is a very
enlightening one. A Bridgeport trolley
conductor concluded to add to his in
ccme by falling to ring up all the fares
handed him by the patrons of the road.
Falling under suspicion for a failure to
keep up the average of his car a de
tective was set to watch him. He was
ctrght red-handed, arrested, tried and
yesterday sent to Jail for sixty days
and fined $25.
There is not involved in this experi
ence the question of wages. Whether
or not the men In the employ of the
trolley company receive always the
wages they are entitled to is a matter
for arbitration. To make up a fancied
shortage by failing to ring up fares is
defensible under no circumstances. It
is perhaps one of ths meanest forms
of stealing for It lacks all of the ele
ments of courage which can at least
bi said of certain kinds of crime.
The invention of the automatic car
register could have given no one any
great satisfaction since It stands a
monument to the cupidity of man, but
it Is still necesaary to protect man
against himself. , The Bridgeport man
not only found himself hanged by It
but what is worse he brought suspicion
upon a body of honest men who work
at all times for the welfare of their
employer and who have only loathing
for the weaker members of their or
ganization who steal without regard to
the greater injury done their fellows.

Charles B. Whiting, a representa
tive citizen of the city of Hartford,
who Is a prolific and entertaining vol
unteer contributor to the press of that
city, writes as follows In part to the
Hartford Times: "Talk about tha rail
roads obeying the laws, here in our
own State the Consolidated has annex
ed and merged everything in sight, en
tirely ignoring the Sherman anti-trust
law, and the results have been bene
ficial to all New England. Jf the gov
ernment should start In to break up
this combine, there would be such a
howl Its ears would tingle and I vent
ure to say it would change the politics
of Connecticut."
This is a home Interpretation of the
Federal administration's determina
tion to break, bridle and drive the
railroads of the country and It 13 an
exceedingly Interesting comment. It
brings home to the people, of the State
as nothing else has the two kinds of
railroad consolidation which exist,
with the good of one and the evil of
the other emphasized. If the Sherman
anti-trust law had been enforced, as
Mr. Whiting suggests, the New Haven
Railroad company would not be the
immense aggregation of capital H is
to-day. All sorts of things would have
been said about the movement in re
stralnt of competition and of trade.
and If the proposed law forbidding
one comoratlon doing; an interstate
business to Invest In the stock of &n-
other had been on the statute books
the State of Connecticut would have
been continuously served by a number
of railroads Instead of one. This is
what we take it, Mr. Whiting means
and In addition he tells us that under
that condition of things we would not
be as well off as we are.
On the other hand we have the Har
rfmanesqtie view of the right of rail
roads to combine and live, which if
carried to Its logical end would In
the end give one man or one set of
men dominated by one man the con
trol of all the railroads of the country,
Tt Is to make this Impossible that
President Roosevelt urged the enact
ment of new railroad legislation and Is
still in favor of additional legislation
of an additionally restrictive charac
ter. It Is his determination that the
public carriers shall not come under
the domination of a few men, on the
one hand, and that, on the other hand,
the government shall extend Its meag
ure of control. It Is no exaggeration
to say that the average man favors
this Idea of the President and wish-
him well In his campaign, even
though he recognizes the Impossibility
of his being a factor ever In railroad
ownership except so far as his savings
In the bank might make him so.
The difficulty plainly Is one of fram
lng a law which will permit the kind
of merging which Mr. Whiting declares
U so popular In the State of Connect!
cut that an attempt to undo it would
cost the political party in power it
life and forbid the kind of merging
which would make Mr. Harrlman an
uncrowned king. The producers of Con
nectlcut would certainly oppose a re
turn to the broken system at home,
which suggests that after all the possl
bit- key to the problem which is vexing
the country so much Is not to be found
in additional legislation but In the
man behind the merged corporations,
I? he keeps In mind the terms of the
contract negotiated between the creator
of the corporation and the corporation
Itself the outcome is good; If he under
takes to use the power given by the
consolidation to Issue watered stock
and do other things known to high
fitance the outcome Is bad. Perhaps It
is well that the Connecticut companies
merged before the reform set in. That
is certainly true, If Mr. Whiting is a
sound exponent of serious thought.
The pride of a United States citizen
in his big per capita of wealth Is con
tinuous and swelling. He is properly
proud of the bigness of that, and he
may also be properly proud of the
smallness of his per capita of whiskey.
Germany m iy also be proud that lager
beer has become the national drink in
this country. It has reduced by about
mie-half the annual consumption of
wv,iskey, which formerly was the fa
vorite American tipple. Back In 1863,
when li" p government made its first of
ficial tecord ul the production of beer,
the total produced was only 2,006,625
barrels. During the fiscal year ended
Juno 30, 1906, the production was 54,
524,553 barrels. The increase that
year over the previous year was
,797.476 barrels, or more than
double the total production in
863. In that year the per capital
consumption was three gallons, and
it is now twenty-one gallons, showing
that the great increase is not due to
Increase of population, but to use. Since
1S63 the per capita consumption of
whiskey has gone down from two gal
lons to less than one.
Less than one gallon of whiskey is
quite enough for most people in a year,
and tv.enty-one gallons of beer is also
quite enough for most people. Still, it

If more men would show the persist
ence in sticking to the farm that F.
D. Coburn, Kansas' secretary of agri
culture, does, they and the country
would be better off. When appointed to
the United States Senate to fill the va
cancy caused by the enforced retire
ment of Burton, Secretary Coburn de
clined' the honor, and he has recently
nipped In tha bud a boom which prom
ised to land him in the governor's
chair, preferring to continue his pres
ent work of making Kansas a more
prosperous State.
Those who know how Secretary Co-
bijrn has worked for sensible, scientific
and profitable agriculture in Kansas
know that he is In love with rils work,
and that he can probably be more use
ful to Kansas as Secretary of Agricul
ture than he would be as governor or
United States Benator. Perhaps the
place of Secretary of Agriculture for
the nation would tempt him, and that
r,;ay yet be offered him. He is well fit
ted for it.

yellow fever broke out in Cuba, it could

there it had a-bad habit of spreading

The President Am a Clvil-Scrvlce
(Providence Journal.)
The President has so often said in
the past that political considerations
should have no weight in the selection
of public officials whose duties are
not political tint tt would be a great
pity indeed if lie were to give way to
the demands o politicians of less ex
alted ideals, and to use the Federal
patronage to promote the fortunes of
any man, no matter how deserving.
It is unfortunate that In some States
Ohio, for example he has apparently
laid himself open to the criticism of
having done this. After all, it is not
for him to build up Administration
machines or wreck anti-Administration
machines. Such things have been at
tempted. But Mr. .Roosevelt ought to
be th last man to attempt them. He
has been intimately associated with
the cause o civil service reform; and
his accession to tha ranks of the spoils
men would be a severe blow to tha
cause. If in Mr. Morgan's case he
hesitated, if he listened for the mo
ment to the siren voice of the "prac
tical" politician, he has taken the rischt
course at last; and this should satisfy
the public. Patronage is a weapon
that quite as often as not becomes a
Boomerang. The President does well
not to use it, potent as it may seem.
The Small Invertor In City Bond.

From a public point of view it is im

to purchase city bonds. The moral ef
fect on the buyer is good; for every
purchaser of bonds becomes to some
extent a better citizen. Ho fenlsi that

spurred into giving closer attention to
political questions which affect the
city's finances. The stearlvinir nonr

The savings banks are attracting year

sound and helpful investment for the
wage earner, and every bond thus held
is conversely a good Investment for
the city.
