temoni UStuicltntatt. THE ELECTIOX OF JUDGES. Tho proposal of amondmcnt to tho VcVmont Constitutlon, ilntroduced Tuesday by Senator Archibald, of Bennington county, providlng that. tho Supreme Court Judges Bhall bo clcct cd ovcry ton ycars lnBtcad of ovory two ycars xleservca caroful considora tlon and 1b a mcasure of no little jncrlt. Of courao tho Judges nlmost always nro rcclectcd ovory two ycars, as a matter of form, but tho tenuro of offlco would bo niore sccuro and would tend to glvo tho .ludges a greater senso of stablllty than tlio present method. Few Statcs elcct thclr Judges for such short tcrms as Vermont does. Most Statcs clcct thelr Judges by dl rect vote of tho peoplo lnstcad of lay Ing that duty upon tho Leglslature as vo do In Vermont. In his specch nt tho Torccntenary banciuet at Bur lington Presidcnt Taft sald: "You olcct your Judges by the Leglslature, I should thlnk a way that might bo improved and you elect them evcry one or two ycars. I forgct whlch, but whatever It Is, tho tcnurc of of ficc is practlcally for llfe, bccauso you bollevo that whon you havo got a good thlng you ought to keep It. "Tho Presldent was right. The method of electing our Judges mlght be InH" proved, and thls year would bo a good ' tlme to accompllsh tho change. 1 We lay too niany olectlon dutles upon the Leglslature, whlch is sup posed to be a law-mnklng body, not an exten8lve body. Even the constitu tlonal provislon providlng for tho olectlon of United Statcs Senators ls opposed by many Statcs and probably wlll be changed wlthln the next de cadc or two. There are serlous objectlons to tho clection of Judges by the Leglslature. A proposal of amcndment already made ls deslgned to put a stop to tho practlce, so prevalent of chooslng Judges from the membershlp of tho Leglslature whlch elects. lt wlll be remembered that two years ago thcro were persistent reports 0 the effcct that the electlon of a Judgo was com pllcated wlth the passage of the so called "ealary grab" blll. It ought not to be posslblo to allow such an lmportant matter to depend In any de gree upon the passage of legislatlve measures, or to glve occaslon for any susplclon of dcals or comblnatlons. If the Judges were elected dlrectly by the people thls paper, for one, be lieves that the system would be an improvement over tho present one and that a ten year term would be in Ueeplng wlth the dignity of the offlce, and the quality of the men whom we choose for hlgh judlcial posltions. THE IMMIGKATIOX COMMISSIOX. "A Brief Statement of the Conclus ions and Recommendations of the Immigration Commisslon" of whlch Senator Dillingham Is chairman, has recently been lssued, and it is an in teresting and an lmportant document. The pamphlet glves a brief history of the commisslon and its work, In cluding the investigations made in Europe and the United States. It is shown that from July 1, 1819 to June 30, 1910, 27,218,710 immigrants were admitted to the United States, and of thls number 91.5 per cent came from European countries. From 1819 to 1883 more than 93 per cent of the Eur opean immigratioTt onginatea jn Great Brltain. Germany, Scandinavia,advertised, 'but after remaining un - the Netherlands, Belglum, France and Switzerlnnd. Slnce 1883 70 per cent. of European immigration has come from the southern and eastern por tions of the continent. The older immigration was one of permanent scttlers. Of the newer im migration at least 40 per cent. returns to Europe and at least 30 per cent. remains there. More than 35 per cent. of the newer immigration is illiterato as compared wlth less than 3 per cent of the old class. It ls interestlng to note that tho commisslon declares that "emigration from Europe is -not now an absolute economic necessity and as a rule those who emigrate to the United States are impellcd by a deslro for better snent rather than by the necessity of esonping intolerable conditions. Thls fact should largely modify tho nntur al incentive to treat the Immigration movement from the standpolnt of sen timent and permlt Its conslderation prlmarlly ln an economlc problem." The commisslon was surprised to flnd fewer caaes of ovcrcrowding in tho cities, and less uncleanllness than was THE TAKING OF UFE may show his thoughtfulness for the futuio comforts of his famlly.
