Only . the ways and means committee, the com mittee on rules and the committee on mileage have been named. As the tariff alone was to be considered at this session, the speaker decided., not to hurry in the matter of the other committees. He may announce their membership near the close of . this session or at the beginning of the regular session In December. This time, as Is known, the speaker Is reverting to the old custom of as signments. Me will decide as to both the majority and th minority mem berships of all the committees. Demo crats and republicans alike will con fer with him by his invitation as to tneir wisnes. . During the minority leadership of Mr. Williams he had practically the assignment of the democrats to their committee places. -Not only were his relations with the speaker pleasant personally,' but he was not advocating the taking of the power of assign ments away from the speaker and putting It into commission. In the of fice of speaker he would " have done unto Mr. Cannon what Mr, Cannon was doing unto him. It is different In the case of Mr, Clark. As he favors taking the power of assignment away from the speak er, why 'Should the speer bestow that power so far as the minority Is concerned upon him? If the one man power leads to tyranny In the case of the .: speaker and that is Mr. Clark's contention why not "In the case : of the leadership of the - minor ity? Mr. Cannon . is doing unto Mr. Clark as Mr. Clark, through a com mission, would do unto him. But will the democrats at least the great ; majority of them accept Mr. Cannon's assignments unless vis ed by Mr. Clark? Will they Insist upon bestowing upon their leader aa respects themselves the power he would withdraw from the speaker? It Is suggested , that they may. If they should, it will provoke some very pretty debate, especially if Mr. Clark should accept their deference and liberally : blue . pencil Mr. Cannon's list. A member must serve as assign ed unless excused by the house; and a democrat asking to be excused, on the ground that Mr, Clark, and not a democratic commission, did not ap prove of the speaker's choice, would give himself and his leader complete ly away. We are not likely to see this power of the speaker ever materially abridg ed. There must be a head to things, and where there is responsibility there must be authority. That is ele mentary; and Mr. Clark, or any other democrat, in .the speaker's chair would desire to be, and insist on being much more than a presiding officer Interpreting rules of procedure.

We, as many others did not want to see Zimmerman get the nomin ation because it mesne a split in the party when the ' time comes , for the election. And we said at the same time . that this also applied to Bennett Gordon. Both men have from various reasons, too much antag onism We said that Mr, Deuker did not have the strength to unite the party. And the recent withdrawal of his candidacy has confirmed our judgment. ',, - It is no need to repeat what every one in the town knows about Dr. Zimmerman he is the same as he always has been and makes no pre tense of being otherwise. It is simply a Question as to whether the town wants to go back to that sort Of thing. It will not be that the town does not remember it will be that the town, as a town, does not care. And we have made the point that Bennett Gordon's opposition came from facts, some ot which we have proved and some of which we do not have to prove. .- . . . '.'',' These things are that he Is not a republican, that he has not been loyal to his party; that bis word is not good; that the thincs which he promised in this campaign were for the most part fictitious and mere buncombe; that he is a dangerous man to have in office, with his er ratic and variable movements, especially when coupled with so power ful, an agent as his newspaper, if elected mayor. Now that his own er ratic personality has led to his own downfall, it is not necessary to dwell on this nor on his attacks on many things which have not merited his abuse. We have therefore felt that a real republican who would be stable and fair to all, and who-would devote all his time and energies to being mayor and whom republicans would unite on in the feeling that such a man would not be a reproach to the town and the party such was the man whom we could logically and sincerely support. If Gordon and Zimmerman are undesirable, why not unite on Harris and nominate him? This has been our line of argument and this we have proved where proof has been necessary. These are our reasons and these are the points which we have emphasized. That today many people think as we do and are intending to vote upon these ideas which they have thought out for themselves is all the vindication we need. And. having presented our case we have confi dence in the wisdom of the thinking men for 'we believe that they will decide this' next nominating election. - . - - The With this issue we close the campaign as far as the paper is con cerned.' If what wo have had to say before has not had any. influence, the little that we could add in one issue would not change the case. We have been told on good authority that we might expect the Item to get out a special edition with much hurrah, to prove that J. Bennett Gordon is still in the race. We do not need to, and any and all campaign stor ies which are saved for the-direct purpose of casting mud on the good name of any candidate in a special edition mark them for what they are things' which cannot be said in the open without being branded. .We have no fear that the people will fall an easy prey to such an obvious method of cheap sensationalism. " What has been said, if it has weight, will be remembered, and we can truthfully say to the public that there are many things which might be said which we have left out, thinking it better to rest our case on mat ters which have no tinge of mud-slinglng. This issue marks the end of our part in the campaign and any stories that are set afloat from now on will be things that cannot be said in the open. So Far as We Are Concerned We end this campaign as far as this paper is concerned with no dis play of black ink and no attempt to make a sensational finish. We make no attempt to influence voters by false report or campaign rumors. We cannot afford to throw away the good name of this paper by tactics cal culated to serve a temporary end, for we . must continue after this pri mary is forgotten. The purpose of our entrance into this matter of the primary was to work for what we considered and still consider the good of the party and the good of the town. And to do this it has been our policy not to put forward our opinions, but to give reasons and evidence so that men might form their own views of the matter. To do this we have had to talk of things which otherwise were better left in the background of the past and the present. If we haVe been personal in our comment and our evidence it must also be remem bered that we have dealt with men. And to talk of men, means to talk of their characters and their deeds and misdeeds. And in this fight (If we'must call it such) we come out feeling that we have fought fairly and for a good cause we feel that if we have helped in the least to throw a little light on the situation we have suc ceeded. We do not think it necessary to say more than that we have a reputation which is too valuable to endanger by anything which has not on its face the stamp of sincerity and honesty. .. We feel confident that with the evidence that we have presented and what is already known by the people of this town In regard to the candi dates that there are enough men who think as 'we do, to nominate a candidate who will be acceptable to all the party and who will be a may or of whom no citizen shall feel ashamed, for the next four years. Our fate does not depend on the result of. this primary for we are looking to the future which we will have to deal with when this primary is simply a matter of record. Our fate remains with, the people we have talked to through these columns in as much as they consider what we have said has been of worth in this matter. We feel confident thai we come out of this affair with success and undishonored. Items Gathered in From Far and Near . , . .Night Colleges. ' -, From the New York World. The trustees of the City College have re solved to establish next fall a night college for bright boys who must work in the daytime for a living. It is an admirable innovation. The old- fashioned American college course was laid out upon tho analogy of sev en years spent in learning a trade. The student was four years apprentic ed to learning to become a bachelor. Three years more he practiced what he had learned,; like a journeyman in a trade, and then he was a fully fledg ed master , ot. arts . "in course." His four years in college allowed generous vacations to teach in winter and work in the hayfield in summer. Under the modern point system, with the aid of summer sessions, any bright boy can complete a college course in three years. One year more In resi dence gives him a master's degree. In a night college a student can easily in four years, by reciting two hours every evening for forty-six weeks, present the equivalent of the " mint mum college requirement By recit ing three hours each night except Saturday the minimum - college re quirements could be met within the college terms; or with night summer sessions in three years. Our Navy. From the Hartford Couraat. We V notice here . and there critical and rather querulous comment on the fact that the first air to the Ameri cans in Asia Minor and the ill-starred native Christans has been given by European warships exclusively. "It is certainly unfortunate for our pres tige," remarks one journal, "that no United States warship is at hand. This absence of any representative of our navy from coasts where its ser vices may be urgently required is due to the virtual abolition of what was called for many years the European station.'" In those years we had a great mercantile marine; its sails in the consecrated phrase whitened all seas. In those years we did not have the Panama undertaking on our hands, or Hawaii, or the Philippines. At present United States warships are more useful actually and poten tially in home waters and in Asiatic waters than in European waters. Smokestack Waste. ' From the Jersey City Evening.

To The Voters Yesterday afternoon a comsoiUee men's clubs, held a meeting at the library and decided to make an appeal to the wives and mothers of Rlcamsad to use their influence in defeating Dr. W, W. Zimmerman in his candidacy for the republican mayoralty nomi nation; and to use their Influence in securing the nomination of a suitable candidate. The following comasnaicatien was drafted aad given to the press for publication today: - Four years ago this fall the women of Richmond, Incensed past endur ance by the appalling conditions existing la their city, sent the following message to every house In It: . ".!-. :: - :::'-.. "The Women's League of Richmond, a aon-partlsan body, organised in the interest of civic purity, earnestly desires to cell ta your attention cer tain statements in the report of the Grand Jury ef last August. This grand jury, after finding that Dr. Zimmerman, while mayor of the city, had issued in his professional capacity, certificates of good health to the inmates of a disreputable house in the city, makes the fnllowlsf comment: "The jury cannot understand, however, the action of Dr. Zimmerman In this matter, for until the recent maaJcipal code was enacted, as mayor of the city. Dr. Zimmerman likewise had judicial powers and presided at po lice court, and his position as such mayor and police judge, certainly re quired him to use every effort to stamp out misdemeanor and to cause the arrest of any person committing any misdemeanor within bis observation., which every Inmate examined by him was doing, as he well knew. The dual position in which hshas stood has extended over a period' of several years, aad certainly no defense can be given oa the ground that It was purely a professional matter." "The women of this city, feeling that the candidacy of a man who could do this thing was a disgrace to the city and an insult to every decent woman in it, held on Tuesday last a mass meeting of protest, which was attended by 1,200 women of all parties and creeds, m "At this meeting the following resolutions were- unanimously adopted: ' "Resolved, That the issue ta the present municipal campaign, is not whether there1 shall be elected as mayor of this city a republican or a dem- ' oerat. but whether vice In Its dangeroua forms shall be protected or sup pressed. X i ' "Resolved, That our present mayor has by his dealings with and rec ognition of a most revolting traffic, which he was by law bound to sup press .shown himself faithless to his trust, and unworthy of re-election, "Resolved, That we resent this attack on the purity of our homes snd the morality of our sons snd dsughters, and Individually pledge our selves to do all In our power to prevent the election of the man capable of 'making ft. Their appeal was heeded -Zimmerman was defeated. The same problem, but more serious than before, confronts us now. The Metropolitan police law has been repealed and the mayor is once more the city judge. It lies in his hands to determine whether violators of the law shall be punished or go free; whether vice shall regain its hold on this community. ' ... . t -,.,.

We can not advfce you which of the other candidates will make the best mayor that is a matter for you to decide. But we can earnestly en treat you not to deliver the city over to Zimmerman, and In the face of this impending danger, to sink all differences and unite on the man best able to defeat him, even though he may not be your personal choice.

In fact, that was exactly what might have been expected. . No large enterprise really seems un der way these days until it has a Jap anese spy lurking somewhere near.

TWENTY SHIPS LAST YEAR GERMAN SHIP YARDS TURNED OUT MORE; FIGHTERS THAN ENGLAND WITH UNITED STATES A CLOSE SECOND.

After several days of this he would move in much closer, taking copious notes all the time, and looking as mysterious as he possibly could.

He would care fully listen to everything they had to say, occasionally delaying to pass a plate long enough to jot down any in formation that he might think worth sending the Miksdo. He would then gradually work up to sneaking over the ground t night, aad. finally, if all went well, he might occasionally go over and watch the steam shovels In the daytime. ; That's the wsy the spy would do it. : Of course, to the Occidental mind all this involves a tremendous waste of time.
