TUB yjRGIxi.V PHI3IARY FLAX. ;A t Its meeting night before last the i>cmocratic State Committee adopted, with some amendments, the- primary elec tion plan prepared by the sub-commit tee, of which Mr. Ellyson was ■ chairman. The State Committee construed the in structions given it by the Norfolk, con vention to mean that it should frame a plan and make 'ready for its use without further action upon the 'part of the con vention. Accordingly the State plan will become operative in the nomination of congressmen this year. As to local can vasses this spring, and thereafter,- it is discretionary with our City and County committees whether they will adopt the primary plan or the convention plan, in making- nominations. .. '" -' . ; . The sub-committee, v^as not • sustained in 1 its recommendation that candidates should 'be assessed to. pay the expenses of * primaries. In- the case of a United States Senator the aggregate assessment would. have amounted, according to Chair •mair Ellyson's- estimate, to ■ about ?7,500, 'or if there were two candidates, to $3,730 '-lor e:ich candidatCi . pndfcr.". the pi an 'adopted, as we understand it, each counly .and city must make provision for fur nishing -polling places, and officers of : 'tlectiori. If those committees can get suitable volunteers, so much the better Tor them; if they have to 1 "pay" elec tion -officers and pay. rentals, upon them, not upon the candidates, nor upon the Stale Committee will devolve the duty iof raising the needful money. ■ .-■ The county members of -the State Com mittee are of the opinion, that they 'will jflnd no lack of volunteers for this ser .yioe. If Richmond and Manchester.; can- Dot secure suitable volunteers, the com -mittees will have to appeal to the pub lic for contributions to pay election offi 'rnrs,; and we cannot but r-elieve there ■will be ; generous responses. While the Dispatch has long been I of the opinion that a stable and satisfactory primary election system would require the various cities' and counties to pay the' expenses out of the public treasuries, we are dis posed to give ; the committee's plan the fullest .and fairest trial, possible. And if H- succeeds, none of its advocates will be more pleased than we shall be. -.-.The fact that the method of voting adopted is viva-voce will make it easier to secure volunteers than the secret bal lot would. Underthe viva-voce plan there ■will be no ballots to count; rio tedious figuring; ton minutes after the polls are closed the standing .. of each candidate may be. ascertained and announced. As; we have. said, City and County com mittees, in: the case of purely local elec tions, may elect .whether nominations 1 shall be made by primary, ■'-'election's- or otherwise: but we find the opinion .pre vailing among leading znen ! of- trie State Committee that where primaries are or dered the; viva-voce system of voting must be used. .We make no objection to that feature on Richmond's account quite the contrary — but wo must say that heretofore we had believed and -slated that choice would be given local: com mittees .in . : local elections to prescribe what ballot. system should be adopted. : We bring this matter to public attention at the' earliest possible monicin, so that if.: the plan adopted is vague or, unsatis factory stops may be takon at the next of the State Committee to amend iU As things stand, . we believe the high est party authority probably would rule that the viva-voce system of voting ap plies to "all" Democratic primary;. elec tions whatsoever. In so far as Rich mond is'i concerned we think that system would be perfectly acceptable to the great mass of Democratic voters for use in the. rnunlcipal primary this spring. Public sentiment' has "undergone a change 611 this subject; .times have changed, arid: we have .^hanged- with them. - '-;""' y So Mr.: Schwab has been ■automobiling,: rather than gambling, "in Southern Eu rope. .; Either of. -the two diversions is dangerous,' according, to- alii accounts.-.;. : ;.

It is substantially the only one ever fought in Massachusetts and is cherished ex. necessitate."' We hadn't been mean enough to think of this before, but really It looks as if the Baltimore Sun were right when it says that the Judge, by this bold assault, has made a "palpable hit." And then, tool the Judge makes confusion worse' confounded . by declaring that "while'few Pennsyl vanians can "ever be persuaded to emi grate to Massachusetts there has been since the time of Perm.a steady current of people who were willing to forego the advantages, civic or otherwise, s of Massa- chusetts in order that they might improve, their condition and ours by coming here"— i.e.;. to. Pennsylvania.' ■"; We are strictly neutral in the contro versy described in the foregoing para graphs and would like to ! see the ; whole truth brought out— especially that part of the truth which relates to slavery. Indeed,-'. we confess .that we "await with curiosity the rejoinder from that "dignified old Commonwealth which sanctioned the pious, but witch-destroying Cotton Mather. Perhaps her reply will „ give Pennsylvania something to. explain. ._ -. •' ABXORMAr; FIRE WASTE. Acting promptly upon the suggestion of ■the underwriters and the Chamber of Commerce regarding the "abnormal lire waste of the city" the Board of Aldermen at their meeting; Tuesday night resolved, the Common Council concurring, to raise a joint committee of investigation who shall "direct their inquiries to : * any den -ciency or inefficiency, if there be- any, in" the equipment or personnel of or man-: agement of fires by the Fire Department, and to any deficiency in the water mains, fire plugs and water supply or other wise of the Water Department:" . It goes without saying tthat; the lower i branch. should concur without delay, that the investigation should be pushed rapid ly to a conclusion and that the remedy or remedies demanded by,: the situation should be applied at the earliest practi cable moment. The Dispatch is not an alarmist, but we cannot shut our eyes to the fact that there is an imperative, , a grave, and a. pressing need for putting the Fire Department upon a more elll cient basis, if we are to be guaranteed against a serious conflagration and an onerous increase in insurance rates. The Board's resolution, it. will be seen, contemplates going into every question Connected with the ability of a city to cope with fires. Whether we are weak, along all the lines it is proposed to pur sue the. investigation we would not as sume-to say positively. Our opinion, .however, is that the personnel of the force and the management of the avail able apparatus is about all that could be desired. One of the few criticisms we have heard of the department is that: it does not .do enough ladder work;, doesn't operate enough streams from lad ders; but it may be that it is' not suffi ciently ■■ equipped in that respect. ,'We confess to. a >; partiality for. the present system of .part station-men and part paid outside runners. ; It combines the discipline of a "regu ■ lar paid" organization, with the en ; thusiasm of the old "volunteer fireman," ! who delighted in the excitement and the 'danger of .fire-fighting; and, we have competent; outside testimony to the effect that it has given us. one. of the best departments for its numbers and equip ment- iv the United States. Further, , we think that d€ spite, the differences be tween Superintendent Boiling on the one .hand and Chief Puller ana-some of tne Board of Fire , Commissioners on the other, as to inadequacy^ of mains and water supply ..In certain sections of 'the city, there is practical agreement on Uie 'general, proposition that the present sys tem requires vast improvement. ■ And from the .opinions and arguments of many who have devoted to the matter intelligent;- and interested study it would also appear, as we understand it, tnat the department is deficient in apparatus. It is urged that in addition to a greater' fiowv of water In various localities- we should have more hose and more engines. The suggestion of; the Evening News that the. fire hydrants ("plugs") . and fire engines be put to a practical test Is a capital one, and we presume: it .Tvill be adopted. Certainly it ought to be. Let us see whether the. flow from, the street mains is what it ought to be; let ., us be sure that the capacity of the engines: is what the builders', guarantees call for. : r But be the trouble where it may— in one, two/or all .of the directions suggest ed : by the' Board's resolution— it'should.'as; we .'. have indicated, be overcome with as little loss of : time as possible. The public, we are satisfied, will sustain the Council in making ; any expenditures .it may tind . necessary -'In-, order to sto-p", as the , Chamber. ■ of Commerce expressed :it; "the abnormal fire' waste ,of the: city, which is -rajjidly dosiroylng ,so large a lKirctntage :of our v taxable .values; arid which must /. inevitably. .If ;iriot .-"speedily^ arrested, result : in such increase .of -the cost of ;lire , insurance indemnity, as- \xill' seriously menace the, 'commercial' land: industrial- growth of the city.''- ..:;-.•.

The resignation of Major , Clay Drewry from the ..Board of •Aldermen, is to be deeply regretted. The retirement . of such a. man from either branch; of , the City Council is little -less than a, public calamity.: The great need of the city for some years has ,been • more ' aldermen and councilmen of Major Drewry's stamp— : citizens who, in their -.persons; and 1 : asso ciations and hold upon popular confidence,- Represent the. highest interests of the community.. ■-. 1 % • . Andif we are. to have a Council equal to the responsibilities' and "requirements of the immediate future, and whose rep utation for intelligence' and. integrity shall be commensurate with the obliga-', tion that rests upon the voters: of. Rich mond in electing their city : legislators; it is meet we were- giving serious con sideration to the selection of candidates for the spring Council race: -„ ■ . ■We have no' sympathy. -with? any ele ment that masquerades in the cloak of reform ■'■for*:' the purpose.' 0f... working the Democratic party, out' of control of" our city affairs. But we do believe in that reform in the party which will put into law- and ordinance-making bodies the best of representative men of all classes in its ranks. The time is upon us, we think, for instituting this ; sort of reform j in connection with : the City .Council. There is just ahead of us a period that !will call for large necessary expenditures,, affecting the city's welfare .in; many ways, and the trust of prpviding for and making Uiem should not be. reposed in. any who arenot above suspicion of being influenced to betray it, either through .weakness' or- incompetency. Hence it be i hooves the tax-payers of all. walks in I life — the conservative and, more Interest !ed forces— to engage from. now on until, the primary in a canvass to bring out the worthiest' and truest "men among them for the Council. • ' ' - "■' '-' "ARE" OR, '"'lS'*; _ - The Federal House-; Committee on Re vision of the Laws' has . decided, it ap pears, "after argument and research," that the United State's "is." The ques tion was settled, so far as the committee is concerned, it is stated, by the discoV-'ry of a pamphlet written by former Secre tary. of State John -W. Foster, with the, title, ; ; ." Are or Is.";; In. this pamphlet Mr. Foster quotes' from Hamilton, Web ster, 'Benton, Motley, C. F. Adams. Jsf ferson, Marcy, Scward, " Fish, Evarts, Blairie, Frelinghuysen, Bayard, Gresh^m, ajid Olnej r , who used' the singular verb. In the earlier messages: of the. Presidents, ■ he says, Jackson only us"cd . the singular form, but in later years "Lincoln and, 'since the civil war particularly! Grant, Cleve land, Harrison, and McKinley. have used it exclusively. .Mr. -Foster also quotes from decisions of the Supreme Court, those of recent years invariably using the singular ; verb in .connection ;with '.the United States. In no class of : documents is greater attention paid to the language employed than in. drafting treaties, ana up to 1890, it seems, the form was used. But since then the singu lar has .been adopted, and "Mr. Fosv ter points .to the fur-seal , treaty of 1592, the: arbitration treaty of 1597, and, lastly, the' Hay-Pauncefote canal treaty, as conspicuous examples of the usage. -'.At the sam'i time, and neverthe less, the Constitution and nearly all the laws, documents, and messages; of -the earlier days of the republic use the plural verb, and there are many who will pre fer; hot to accept, the, decision 'of the House committee as final. . ;:: Cnrient Comment.
