'. " James E. Burnes' is dead Death
is the common; .lot of man. ; But
Burnes died in.th prime of life, at a
, time wheh he should have attained
' a maximum of usefulness to himself,
his family-and j his city. 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. On, Sea Breeze Island he built
a little cottage, whose chief use was
- the entertainment ..pf ,mrn to promote
the interest 'of 'theRepublican organizations-
HisVple&santcrhomew in the
West End became virtually Organiza
ton headquarters. ." The latchstring
waa always out, and .Jllr,, Burnes al
ways In, to extend hospitality to any
. brother, or possible", brother,. In the
spirit of those things In which he
believed. . v'
- f Burnes became enthusiastic in the
......
cause which he had undertaken; de-
Voted an-increasing share of his time
q, t; gave more largely of his money;
gave enormously of the splendid vi
tality which he had inherited from
".his parents. ' - "
Men are not selfish; not in essence.
Men prefer to serve public ends. 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.
N.
He thought he was associating with
- Jekyll and his friend was Hyde, of
' twin countenance, and aspirations ..of
another kind." " '. r '
. Burnes worshipped an , idol, and
, didn t know It soon enough. He gave
'timeceV.Ilthand iife' itself to
promote'?The Organization." But the
viujuwuuu uiuu l (iromoie cturu.es.
Having used him. it cast him aside
. Burnes believed that he was to be
director of public works, and office
less than nothing compared with the
office of being a first class builder
'. and contractor an independent . in
dustrial captain.. '
But was public office, ,and t
. Barnes it presented attraction.
. He had worked hard, long and
, generously, for those whom he con
founded with the Republican party.
He thought he deserved the reward
of this trifling .appointment.
" The office had been promised, to
him. But he didn't get it. , ,
' Broken in health and pocket ho
was an. instrument that might , be dl-
wtrdl al 'wiiSaui: penalty
Be was" discarded.
There is a last , straw which makes
' a burden . 'endurable, Burnes, who
onwittingly followed false gods, could
not endure the crushing disappoint
ment administered to ' him in the
house of his friends.
His at incentive to struggle for
life disappeared. - He ' died in the
irime of life.
He worshipped the Organization,
(ought for the Organization and died

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

,
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.

Cowles did not . approv eof a single

the territory into several zones,, with
in . which and between which there
should be uniformity of rate classi

principle. , ,

to 150miIes from a centdr. The

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

This may be fairly termed the Amer
ican standard of living, yet there are
some omissions. 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

or less will not omy keep .her family

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

of a kind that needs to be ' expressed

- How much of the sum of generosity,

beneficent virtues and services comes
from women by choice lor fate unmar

charity, ' education, religion, humanity.
"Many of them, a large modern class,
don't want to marry, or fail to find the

for themselves; no doubt many of
them have to lead lonely and narrow
lives, but they brighten them and

not simply because, they are moralists

is not alone because they carry the

money stake, in Mr. Roosevelt's for

such considerations! " ' We only point
out-the special , obligation to the scru

They know what they themselves

fearful exposure - to misunderstanding

their friends may Well implore them,
as they . value .their reputation and

been under investigation by the House
Judiciary committee, is equivalent to
a confession, . in view of the evidence
already given and other and even more
damaging testimony that was ready
to be presented.
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. ';-'
