He was the : loyal people, who gave him a good constitution, a sound education and a first class start Burnes" became a contractor and builder. He figured oh big work and defeated the best men in his line. He entered politics. He became district leader. He be came the most powerful member "off his organization in the entire West End.

At . least, men do like Burnes, who are big, and healthy r aad hearty and ..brimming- over with brotherly feel- V ing, and the desire to walk, shoulder to shoulder with others in a common 'cause. , ; . ' . The mistake that Burnes made was the mistake that many another good fellow has made. There is a decep tive resemblance 'between parties- which are. collective movements and gangs which are . selfish, restricted And narrow reflexes of . individuals . seeking their own advancement. -Burnes believed' In the Republican ' frty, as jan Instrument of govern - mem; as a strong ractor in promoting the welfare - of menV He wanted to join the Republican party, and he found himself with the Organization.

WHY WILSON RESIGNED ; PRESIDENCY OF PRINCTON Th&t Governor Wilson, is thoroughly Democratic, as well as a thorough Democrat, is amply. proven by the fight he waged and, lost--for simplicity and democracy at Princeton university. It is well known in college circles throughout the country," but not so generally known else vyhere, that Gov. Wilson was virtually forced to give up bis work at Princeton because of the intense bitterness he stirred up by his long," hard fight -against the , money power that sought to place wealth and snobbery above , I character and manhood at the jrmceton university, iiKe most 01 me Dig eastern colleges, is afMicted4 with a lbt of ..aristocratic clubs, in which the wealthier students make their homes while at school. These clubs are composed of millionaires' sons, and the houses sOme them occupy are built on a scale of wealth and magnificence not equalled outside of the big clubs of New YorkV Some of theni, in- fact, are marble palaces, with garages arid tennis courts attached, -arid fill ed with the costliest furniture. , , . v The members of these clubs, not content with living on a scale beyond the wildest dreams' of the poorer stu dents, . sought to . . control the university politics. ,They wanted to "mn things," .and they did run things. They dictated the captains of the athletic teams, and in other ways they exerted an influence which was reflected in inany ways in the general policy of the university. Be sides this, they set up a social impossible for the average ter how brilliant his mental his character, '. - s -, . " - . : 1 . , JIr. Wilson, as president change all this. He wanted to build a big central build ing to house all the students, so that rich and poor could mingle onji footing of absolute democracy. Opposed to him yere a number of the trustees, prevail, arid who, in addition, separate from the main college, where a certain class of students could work and study by themselves. ( . ' There was violent opposition to Wilson's plan, lie was denounced by the moneyed graduates of Princeton, and other rich men whose sons were members joftha aris tocratic clubs rose in a body stood firm. He made speeches at alumni banqliets and elsewhere favor of the democratic plan. Finally, a rich man died, it was louiia mat ne naa leit , tnree million a oimrs tc Princeton provided the ; grac uate school' was ' adopted. This meant defeat for Wilson, the nerve and back bone to, turn down such a large, offer. Wilson's foes were triumphant, and soon afterward he re signed to accept the governorship pf New Jersey. ; ; Governor Wilson proved his title and his worth as a simon-pure. Democrat in that magnificent, though losing tight at Princeton. . CRITICISING THE TRADE SCHOOLS The attitude of the Central Labor Union toward Connecticut's . two trade schools seems to have rperit. The body recognizes the advantages and wisdom of . technical training, de signed to practically assist1 the stu dent to a livelihood. The complaint, against the Connec ticut .trade schools seem to be that they are run on a different plan' than the other trade schools of the coun try, and that this plan is a diversion from the purpose of better equipping boys? and girls for life's work; to meet the Immediate demands of cer tain manufacturers. , ; One complaint made by the Central Iabor. Union," for Instance, ' is, that the trade school does not make first class craftsmen of its pupils, .but makes SPECIALISTS of them. , This is a serious accusation. '. It should be investigated, and if the. condition as stated exists it should be remedied. The complaint, prior to the trade school era, was that modern manu facturing conditions had ceased to produce all around mechanics, and had replaced them with specialists. A specialist Is one who has learn ed to jperform some one or two me chanical operations, sometimes upon some particular machine. For-this single detail, or for a single machine, the specialist does well enough, but his own horizon and opportunity are narrowed to just the extent that he fails to be an all around mechanic. , Is it true that the trade school is equipping boys and girls mainly to run particular machines and 'to per form particular operations? Are boy's and girls being sent into factories to do this circumscribed work? If they are, then the school is turning ot Specialists. - .. It is pretending to equip boys, and and girls with a trade, and is only giving them a FRAGMENT of a trade. If . the situation exists, it is as if the public school should give boys and girls a thorough education in ad dition, and then turn them over to Individuals ; who wanted something cheaper, than adding machines. To call mere Instruction in addition an education would be no more a fal lacy, than it is to say that the boy has learned a trade who has been taught how to run a machine, and nothing more. One charge made by . the Central Ifabqr Union seems to be substantiat ed. It is the nine hour day. EIGHT HOURS IS THE RECOG XJniversity;' ; , : . barrier beyond which it was student to penetrate, no mat attainments, or how worthy , '. ": -' . 1 . ' '. 1 . - . - . - - B of . the university, wanted to who wanted the old plan tg, wanted a ' graduate school" agamst him. But Wilson and when his will sls read becaus the trustees lacked , NIZED DAY IX THIS COUNTRY. It is the legal day. It is the day established by the United States, by the State of Connecticut and by the City of Bridgeport. It is the day. of public workers throughout the United States. It is the day that has been established, for impregnable moral and social reasons. ,. ,s . The nine hour day in a Trade school devoted to the education of adolescent boys and girls does smack of an effort to make the common wealth stultify its own laws, by giv ing educational force to a day an hour longer than it has created jby statute for its workers. ' . The state, in its trade schools, is in the position of proclaiming that half grown boys and girls ought to toil an hour longer every 'day than adult men and women. THE CONTRADICTION IS TOO GLARING. IT CANNOT CONTINUE An eight hour day is. the limit that the school should go. physiologi cal and social reasons of the strong est seem to demand a day less than eight hours for the trade schools. ' Six hours is the day that has been more generally adopted. The plaint of the Central Labor Union should be heeded. A trade school supported by public money can net afford toquarrel with the work ers. If, it does, it may some day find its finances cut off, for, in the last analysis, the workers are the keepers . of the. public purse. They fill it, and they can draw the purse strings tight. - THE TRIUMPH OF JAMES R. COWLES The strength of a sound idea is im measurable. Some , twenty years ago James R. Cowles of Farmington be came the champion of the zone sys tem in railroad rate making. He wrote a book dealing with the rail road problem,' in which he proved conclusively that there is no relatior between the distance that, a com modity is hauled and the cost of hauling it. In a certain way this con tention iad been many years before elucidated by . Sir Rowland B. Hill, creator of the English Postal system, who convinced the English people by abundant practical illustration that it cost more to take letters to . a small place just outside, of LondoU", than it cost to take as letter to Edinburg. The result was the adoption of a single zone system and a single charge f o. letters to any part of England. This principle was adopted into the United States postal system. Cowles argued for the application of- the zone system to the railroads. On Second By JAY E.

' , Speaking of he 131-pound catfish caught in the Missouri riyer, if a thing is valueless the supply of it always is ample: - in making charges for passengers and freight. In the matter of parcels and freight, much heavier than letters, Cowles did not . approv eof a single zone, but advocated . the division v of the territory into several zones,, with in . which and between which there should be uniformity of rate classi fication. Laughed at for years, Cowles has lived to ' witness the triumph of his principle. , , The zone , system, upon a rather elaborate division, - has been adopted by the Inter State Commerce Com mission for express, .rate purposes. . The zone system 'has been adopted by. Senator Bourne in his plan for, a parcels post. . - Bourne uses eight zones. The en tire country is" divided by thi meri dians 6f ; latitude and longitude . into quadrangles of fixed dimensions. The 'first zbne will include one square, and all territory in other squares within a radius of 50 miles from a common center. In tHia zone a package will cost five cents for te first pouad, and hree cents for each- other pound. vThe second zone includes distances to 150miIes from a centdr. The third distances to 300 miles from a center. The eighth zone covers the greater distances, 'and the rate is 12 cents a pound. , i . . - - . . - ..... REVIEWS X1 FROM Our. Exchanges V Watching the Crops. , (Hartford Post.) The next weeks are ones of feverish anxiety around the stock market tick er. ,The brokers may worry daytimes over politics, but it takes a cold and rainy week in v the 4 Dakotas, - or - ai scorching sun bath in Kansas, to keep them awake nights. They know that if the crops of 1810 could be duplicat ed this fall, a stream of money would be pouring out of every cross roads regardless of any political passion. It has been , a , blot on American in dustry, that our production of the great cereal crops per " acre has been but a third to a half the records of Europe. With the preaching of the gospel of a better farming, it cannot be many years before our grain ele vators will overflow at higher ratios than ever before. . ' Already in 10 states, according to the departmnt of agriculture, fte corn crop is increasing faster per acre than pop ulation. Ten ' years ago the principal efforts to better our farming were .along two lines the cattle show, and the higher education of the agricultural colleges. The cattle shows performed a very useful service along unscientific lines. Premium money distributed among the farmers has induced a minority of them to produce aristocratic creatures of the barn yard. But the great bulk of the farmers attributed their failure to get premiums tq cattle show poli tics, and continued to raises scrawney beasts. The . cattle shows also never did much . toward better cereal , crop products, t ' . ; ; The old : fashioned ' agricultural col leges, produced -men ; who tnade admir able superintendents for big farms. Af ter a mam had sweat and strained ' to get his training, he- had invested too much - in his education to go home and plough : hisi father's acres. It .having ; been : demonstrated that the average farmer will not go tq college, during the-past ten years the colleges hav been put n wheels, and taken around . to the granger stations. And a whole f-lot of the High schools have quit teaching the youngsters the productions of ; the ancient Romans.and have discussed the question what crop will grow the best on the Old Man's farm. The results, must soon be seen ' - - - The Cost of Living. . ,..(Waterbury-Republican.)

There, is nothing for the savings bank or for a vacation fund, or for pocket-money for the wage earner, who is not even allowed tobacco money. The total amount spent, on the table is $488.76. v When compared -. with the averasre family income, this ; looks high, yet when, the separate items are examined, there seems to be- small op portunity for retrenchment. "Even an outgoing mayor sharpening his , pencil to keep the tax-rate down to sixteen, mills, would have trouble in dispos ing of any of the items. It is pos sible to object only to the totals on the ground that most ramines ao noi have $1,084.91 a year to spend. When you come to think of it, what a tribute there is in thjs family budget to the financial genius of the Ameri can housekeeper who on this amount or less will not omy keep .her family well clothed well-fed, healthy --"and happy, but in spite of the presrure of rising 'prices will squeeze out a mue or to send 'a son to a business -college. How does she do it?- , The Thaw Decision. (Hartford Times.) ' . . . .There are three admirable features in the latest decision handed down by Justice Keogh of New York. It is brief, it is simpla, and it keeps Harry Thaw where most ', people want him keot. . . . ' .. The decision sends Thaw back to 'Matteawan and it goes far to reassure those people who, in the face of some recent: pardons, have come to fear, that the - possession? of enough Tnoney and influence would get a criminal out of any unpleasant' situation in 'which -he found himself Thaw murdered a man. . His life was spared after an exhaustive trial in which it was finally determined that his offense had been inspired by an unsound mind. Since then he has been tried and re-tried. In every case the verdict has been the same. He, is dangerously 1 and, in all human prob ability," permanently insane. One might wish that this w6uld end the appearances of Thaw in the courts; but so long as he has mdney for coun sel: fees and alienists" we do not see what is to prevent him f ronf;. con tinuing his habeas corpus proceedings from time to time. And there may come a day when the state of New York will weary of the expense' in volved in keeping him" where: he is when an attorney-general will ( (find himself too busy to continue the fight or when the diminishing of public con cern will render the resistance, apa thetic. - - In which case .Thaw may get out.

The determination not to press the proceedings further on account of his resignation is open to other objections: First, because it allows the escape, of a wrongdoer in ki high place without formally branding him with the, scar let letter of: guilt; second, because it may serve to prevent disclosures wHth regard to corrupt corporation and' in dividual methods and practices in re lation to the judiciary 'which the coun try, ought to know. The second ob jection may be met . by an independent investigation, and if impeachment pro ceedings against Hanf ord are dropped sucn an investigation' should be at once begun. y - Rut the"" proceedings against Hanford should not - be dropped, not only- be cause tire law' should know no f avor Ites ' and the legally; prescribed pun ishment should be inflicted on the highest as well as the lowest criminal, but because the effect would be to strengthen the radical demand for the recall of judges.. The answer to that demand now is that when a Judge is guilty of wrong he can be reached by impeachment or other proceedings al ready provided. If tie Is to be per mitted to evade a formal verdict by a simple resignation, and to "retire" to a lucrative private practice conferred by the corporations' he has favored , on the bench, and able to assert that he resigned and was not impeached, the answer to the agitation for the ju dicial recall loses half its force. If Judge Hanford is innocent, as he claims he should be made to prove it 'in the interest of an upright and independent judiciary. If he is guilty, he should -be proclaimed so forma Uy, so as to preserve the bulwarks tuat protect the judiciary ' system of the country - from the rifting tide of radi calism.
