PUBLIC SENTI3IENT WOULD AP PROVE. There 1s little if . any doubt that if ' Connecticut's Senatorial contest could be submitted to a popular vote, Mr. Hill would receive a heavy majority and would . be supported . by many democrats as well as by much more than nstf 'hf the ReDublicans. There ig'even less doubt that manufacturing commercial and banking interests are i very heavily in favor of Mr. Hill. ! Yet-this important matter is to be settled by a caucus of the Republican ,s members ,of , the General Assembly, ''more or less of whom obey the dic- states," not of their constituents, but of an ' irresponsible, unreachable, auto cratic State machine composed mostly of county bosses. Is it right? The - Farmer believes that should, , contrary to expectation, a canvass of the Republican legislators show a ma jority for Brandegee on the first bal- " lot. Mr. 'Hill's "supporters would be abundantly justified in refusing to go into caucus . or to- be bound by its ac tion," and in carrying the contest into the General Assembly itself. They would , have public - sentiment behind . them.v ItYis a matter involving more f than what might be called party eth ics: A' similar procedure was once fol lowed in this State, "and the results were beneficent. , We ' do not know what action the , Democratic legislators would take in such event, but we may fairly assume that' as between Hill and Brandegee they would, after a complimentary balloj for some prominent Democrat, give their votes to the former. Director Blitz, is in favor of oiling m mi t a "... ' . dust and, incidentally, ; the preserva tion of road , surf aces. Has any one considered '- closely the effect of oiled roads upon rubber tires? It is a well established, fact that oil has a deter ' iorating effect upon rubber, yl ' 1 ? Banker" Clews concludes .his annual r finanriBi review, with the followine: With the rise of confidence in busi ness circles, and an abatement of po litical scares, the coming year should bei one of growing industrial activity. The wise ones, however, will move cautiously and not indulge in excessive optimism. The moderate course will be the safest one. 'A" This is about the average opinion in Vfeankmg :" circles, and the moderate f Course advised by Mr. Clews is certain ly thV safe policy. Moderation cannot harm, while a rushing course might y 1 ..meet with disaster. .However great may be the State's financial needs, it would scarcely be good policy to reimpose the State tax on the towns until all' obey the law requiring full-valuation assessments. With th3 grand lists, of some towns showing full valuation, and those of others showing , valuations of from 33 1-3 to 75 per cent, only, there would under a State tax be a manifest ine quality of taxation. Of course, the State board of Equalization could and probably would do something toward remedying the situation, but it is a matter with which the towns them selves can best deal. V i , : . . ; Judge Banks hasn't, he says, told any ohe where he stands on the Sen atorial question.. .Under -modern po litical procedure, this is the. usual cus--tqm "of candidates for other offices than the one in question. And yet, there are rumors that committee po sitions which are in the gift of the Speaker of the House, are being prom ised in exchange for votes for U. S. Senators. . If this be true, there is a direct connection "between the candi dacies' for U. S. Senators and for Speaker and while Judges Banks and Malone may" not express themselves openly as between Messrs. Hill and Brandegee they may be aiding one or the other by pledges of committee po sitions. . A question for international public ists to consider gravely is whether it would not be wejl to close up the worst of the world's earthquake sections to re-settlement whenever r their resident populations are practically extermin- atedj as in Sicily and Calabria at pres ent. It seems worse than useless to permit their repopulation when recur rences of such disasters are only mat ters of time. The earth's crust , in such places is evidently too thin for human safety. But the publicists may shock the world, by saying the disasters of great magnitude. are really beneficial in that,. they reduce populations in creasing' too rapidly. This argument has heretofore been used in justifica tlon,of great wars. ' 1 v -' ' Editor Clark of the Hartford Courant has visited President-elect Taft, " and It is fairly presumable that although fhe latter; has disclaimed heretofore :y intention of Interfering in Sena- i contests, the Cor necticu "itua- I tion was fully placed before him. Judge Taft may not interfere openly but there cannot be a reasonable doubt that whatever influence may be pos sessed by him or by President Roose velt, will be quietly used in Mr. Hill's support. There is the more reason for this belief, from the fact that pres sure in favor of Brandegee is being applied by the Anti-Administration Republican Senators at Washington. The Courant recently warned them against such interference, saying that the Connecticut Senatorial election is "not at all lthe business of a senator ial cabal at Washington that lies awake nights to hate Theodore Roose velt and worked overtime last winter and spring to prevent the nomination o William Howard Taft."

WRITER TAKES BISHOP TO TASK Denies that Faith of Mother Eddy is a Religion of Er rors and Negations. Editor of the "Farmer." Dear Sir: Will you kindly allow me to call at tention to some of the statements made by Bishop Brewster in his article "Healing and Christian Science," and reprinted in recent issue of your paper. . In speaking of Christian Science, Bishop Brewster says. '"Doubtless cer tain of its u.firmations are true, how ever little originality it may rrghtly claim for them. Its error lies in its negations, for example, its denial of the virtue of the Sacraments, of the benefit of any medicines, and the like denials." The affirmations of Christ!an Science are based upon such statements as these. "I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no , God . beside me; I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: ' : "That they may be known from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me, I am the Lord, and there is none else." '. The positive affirmation of this truth as set forth by Isaih, is in Itself a & -hial of all else which in any way lays claim to power or presence. Likewise, conceding power to inanimate drugs as having power in themselves and to rely upon rites and ceremonies would be to deny God. than whom there is none else. The history of medicine itself shows it to be of pagan 'origin, and used by the pagan priesthood with incantations, and in , four thousand, years, material medicine has not gone beyond the ex perimental stage. The statement that Christian Science "arrays itself against the Church of Christ," is erroneous. Jesus, founded his church on the statement of Simon. .'Thou art the Christ, the. Son of the living God!" That is to say, thou hast declared the Messiah, the very spirit of God, of Life, Truth, and Love, there by eliciting from the Master the bene diction. "Blessed art thou Simon Bar jona; for flesh and blood hath not re vealed it unto thee, but my ' Father which is in heaven." Upon this found ation, the spiritual import of Jesus' life work, Christian Science builds. The. statement that "psychology is a new science," is misleading, for sug gestion, animal magnetism," or 'Mes merism as it has been known since 1775. has been a belief Avith mortals ever eince the serpent, as portrayed in the allegory of Genesis, said, "Ye shall be as gods, knowing good and . evil," and for this knowing, "the Lord God said, "Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put frth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and live for ever: The Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from- whence he came." The teaching and practice of Chris tian Scienca is based -unflinchingly on the spiritual word of God, and the life work of Jesus the Christ, who came to destroy the works of the devil, and he healed the sick, and so did his dis cipleswithout resorting to material medicine. The devil, (slanderer) typi fied by the serpent in the allegory, was a liar from the beginning, bringing mortals into captivity to that which is opposed to Spirit, God. Jesus gave a knowledge of the Tuth to a sin-sick world, which Truth makes free to-day according to his promise. Hundreds of thousands of people rise up and call him- blessed, because of the healing Truth which has come to the world in this age, known as Christian Science. To-day as of yore, the sick are healed, the dying are raised from beds of pain, after the wisdom of man ha failed, and material medicine has done all within its power. A spiritual unction, and the peace of knowing God - aright even in a small degree, has come on earth. Christian Science does not cruelly abandon the victim of disease to his fate, but points upward to the living God, "with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." ' Sincerely, FREDERIC C. HOTCHKISS, Committee on Publication for Connecti cut. T O 3d. X JSL m Bears the Signature of The Kind You Have Always Bought BY-PRODUCTS CO. WILL REDUCE FISH Two Car Loads Submitted to Local Digestors Indicate Feasibility of Project. Although the town of East Lyme would not stand for the locat on of the garbage reduction plant of the Bridge port By-Products Co. in its territory, the company is planning to operate a fish reduction plant upon the land which it 3ecured there for its garbage plant. President J. A. Livingstone re cently had two carloads of fish brought to this city and put through the d'ges tors of the local plant as an experi ment. It was found that the apparatus will extract and separate the by-products of fish. The company believes it wiil be able to operate a fish pant in East Lyme without offending the nos trils of the residents. The $7,000 which was appropriated last year for the purpose of establish ing a bulk head at Admiral street and paying for extra transportation costs of the garbage in boats to be Loaded at ths bulkhead has not been spent by the Board of Health and it is under stood that the board will ask for the appropriation of j.he money as the By-Products Company . claims it will get away just as soon as possible. The company does not have to get the permission to; establish the fi--h plant from the town authorities by the same methods as the state laws rer quire for the transportation of garbage from one town to another. It is thought that the company will be ab'e to educate East Lyme to garbage through the reduction of menhadden and other fish. If it proves that it has an odorless plant it may be possible in the future to transport the garbage of this and other cities there for reduc tion.
