Sev eral matters Including the salaries In the department of public works were disposed of Anally at the meeting Fii- uay evening.

Senator Foraker addressed a letter to-day to Chairman Brown of the republican state commit tee of Ohio, asking that its call for thi republican state convention explicitly provide that delegate be directly cho. en at duly authorized primary elections. The letter follows: ' "Hon. Walter F. Brown, Chairman, etc., Toledo, O. Dear Sir: In accordance with an nouncements heretofore made, I re spectfully request that the republican state central committee shall in its ca!l for the next republican convention,' ex plicitly provide that all delegates to that convention shall be directly chosen at duly authorized primary elections, held in accordance with the statutes of tho state applicable theretd. Trusting that you may bring this matter before the committee at the proper time and that It may take favorable action on this request, I, remain, "Very truly yours, "J. B. Foraker." provements for a generation or more, a condition of affairs that 13 seldom found in business life. Is the plant and capital fully utilized. Is another question that should come to the business man at once. The school investment In New Haven Is close to $2,000,000, yet the investment lies idle seven nights in the 'week. There should be public lectures in the school houses in New Haven as there are in New York-in the evenings; the Bchool houses should be made the cen ters for a host of community clubs and interests, including music, athlet ics, the mothers, the parents, etc. The city pays a great amount of money each year to secure election polls. The polls could be legitimately located In the school buildings and the money saved from hiring polls put to new school equipment. There are few business enteprlses that have not undergone great changes in the last decade. The medical pro fession has been revolutionized In the last fifty years. Even theology has changed many of its fundamentals within that time. But the schools still keep on with the same foundations. The schools are the only places that are allowed to turn out an unfinished product. Individual needs are not ad ministered to. Every pupil is made to travel the same road, wheteher he Is destined to be a horseshoer or a fi nancier. Tho attendance is irregular but the schools do little to make tha courses so interesting and practical and urgent that the children cannot but see the need of staying at school. What should be the great effort of the schools? It should be to fit the pu pils to be able to be self-supporting. Education should not be like the build ing of a house, unless until the roof la put on, till the finishing touches are made, the graduation Is reached. Edu cation should be complete, as far as It goes, at every stage in its advance ment, so that, if a child is forced to leave school, his education will be of some practical use to him. , The day is close at hand when the stress of life will demand that there be the least possible waste in school ex penditures. New Haven must come to the point where it Will realize the Im portance of the trade school a an edu cational institution Just as they have already in Europe. Tho question Is one largely of ex pense, saving where saving can be done and expending wisely. In any business the only synonym of econ omy is efficiency. The taxpayers should take it upon themselves to see that the maximum of result ia got from the in vestment made and also, wherever the needs of the community demand and additional expenditure. Dr.. Diamond criticized the decision of the finance board to lay aside an appropriation of only 19,000 for educational needs when $30,000 was badly needed.

BUTTERWORTH SPEAKS With Secretary Stokes lie Addresses Yale Club. ' . - , Senator Frank S. Butterworth last night Informally addressed the mem bers of the Tale Good Government club at the University club, speaking on the forms necessary to go through to accomplish legislation In this state. The address was for the most' part on technicalities, Including the manner of presenting a bill and what was neeeS' sary to have It passed. Secretary Stokes also made an ad dress. In contrast tu Senator Butter worth's, ivhlch was of a practical na ture, Mr. Stoke was more that of an Idealist. He spoke of the hope for the future and the part which students and collcgo men can play in bringing about a purer state of affairs. He referred to the work of Vance Mc Cormlck and Herbert Parsons. At the election of officers the fol lowing were chosen: Charles Seymour, of New Haven, president, and James B. Grant, Tale 1909, secretary.

I ;'-1-'-J'J'','; DEAN ROPERS ELECTED Delegate to Conference from First Methodist Church in April. 1 Dean Henry Trade Rogers, of the Tale Law school, was again elected at the regular quadrennial meeting of the First Methodist church held last evening, to be the delegate of that church to the New Tork East confer ence to be convened at the Hanson Place church, Brooklyn, next April. This Is the second time that Dean Rogers had been elected to represent the church in this capacity. At the last conference Dean K'ogers was elect ed the moderator of the convention, and there Is good reason to believe that he will again be elected to fill that position next April. The First Methodist church expects to present the name of Denn Rogers at the conference as a candidata for election as delegate to the Internation al Methodist conference, which will be held in Ealtimore in May of next year. In all six delegates will be elected from the New York East conference to the international conference, which Is the highest body in the Methodist church in the world. At the mooting last evening Frank J. Pvlce was elected reserve delegate to the conference. Mr. Rice will attend In cr.se Dean Rogprs is unable to do so for sfny reason.

Benjamin Wright, pastor of the Orange Congregational church. AN SON I A. (Special Journal-Courier News Service.) The board of aldermen held a very important meeting last even- j lng in tho city hall. The nominations that the mayor made were voted upon, and all were ac- j cepted with the exception of those of corporation counsel, Are chief and janitor of the city hall, which It as found out were not constitutional. The mayor's veto of the trolley reso lution was not withheld by a party vote. ' In Mcmoriam. Ths Rev. Benjamin M. Wright died in Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital, New York, November 17, 3907, in the 47th year of his age, following a nasal operation that was not considered In Itself dangerous or serious.

Mr. Wright had been pastor of the Orange Congregatlohal church for eleven years, following an earlier pas torate In Kent. He was well equipped for his work intellectually and spiritual ly. H was broad-minded, consera tlve, progressive, ready to receive and welcome: truth from whatever source it came. He lived with his face to ward the sky. An excellent preacher, he was also a faithful pastor, a true and sympathetic friend. He was in terested In rthe live questions of tha day, in the schools of the town and was . for some years a membet f the boarS of education of tha town Of Or anrei ""Whomsoever he could help, he helped; but he sounded no trumpet be fore or after. Ho was highly esteemed and' greatly beloved by his own people, and the bond strengthened year by year while1 he lived among them. He was one fr the most cherished mem bers of this association, faithful In at tendance, Warm-hearted towards his brethren, generous in his estimate of Others, depreclatlve In his estimate of himael!. Brother Wright held a large place In our affections, and his name will be long ctierWied by us. To' his family we extend sympathy and fcomifiena" thami to the God of all comfort and grace.
