William R. George will tell us that re publics are ungrateful, especially the one he futhered. ; ! , . . : , , : : ; : : . . s Secretary Redfleld has quite a chore to investigate all the industries that have shut down in the West for one rea son and another. Someone is neglecting a fine chance to throw off a little fiction under such a title as "Brickley of Harvard." All kinds of romance might be built about this young man's toe. Senator Root isn't too old to give ' the nation several more years of usefulness as a senator from New York; so it is to be hoped tliat the reason which he gave for not running for president will not serve to keep him from running for senator again. He . would not be an old man, as age is reckoned now, by the time he shall have , completed another term of six years in the Senate following the present term, , which expires in two and one-half years. That the European smallpox is a far different disease than the ailment that has been going the rounds of the United States 'is indicated by the fact that on the battleship Ohio of the fleet which has been visiting Mediterranean ports for several weeks there have been Beven cases of smallpox with one fatality, while the other six are considered very serious. Without a doubt the disease was contracted while the men were on shore leave in the European ports and the disease was brought on board ship ;to infect others, As far as the Ohio la concerned, it constitutes quite a serious situation, and nothing short of the most drastic steps should be taken to stop the outbreak before the ship returns to an American port. A street railroad company operating between Springfield, Mass., and Hart ford, Conn., is trying out a new system of heating fresh air that is said to do the work properly and by automatic ac tion turns on and shuts off the warm, fresh nir. If there is an invention greatly needed in present-day existence it is a system of ventilating and at the same time heating street cars in winter so that passengers will not be subjected to the depression and disease of a closed, Btuffy car or to the direct contact with currents of cold air which rush in through opened ventilators. The dis comforts of travel on the ordinary closed car on any street car line are so great that' many people are disposed to stay at home or to travel by some other conveyance unless positively forced to take the street cars. Therefore, it is very good news to be informed that one company at least has installed a system which promises to give satisfac tory Results and remove many of the discomforts of the old systems. More over, such companies as install satisfac tory systems are likely to get a large increase in patronage. SOUTHERN REPRESENTATION IX " REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. The proposed reorganization of the representations of the states in tlie Re publican national convention will not af fect Vermont as far as the 1915 conven tion is concerned, the state being allowed eight ddi gates just as has been its quota for n good mnny years j nor would the system under which the representation is arrived at be likely to reduce the state's quota for a long time to come. There fore, as regards Vermont's position In tlie convention, the Republicans of the state have no personal interests to safe guard but are left free to decide in their state convention whether the proposad re duction in most of the southern states, together with smaller cuts in some of the larger northern states, is right and justifiable. Viewed from the standpoint that southern states have little more than a mere skeleton of Republican or ganization, without the votes to back tlicm up, and also that such southern ! stnto9 are likely to be the mere tools of j the Republican who happens to be in the . presidential chair and who aspires for further honor in the same position be cause of patronage that may be be stowed upon them, the proposed decrease in the representations of such southern 'states appears to be justified. On the other hand, there is the possibility, some what remote, to be sure, that such states in the South will become nearer Repub lican than they have been wont to be since the "solid South" was established ,for the Democratic party, in which event j the cry for proportionate representation 1 with the northern states would be en- tirelr reasonable hence, in view of that j possibility, it is claimed by some that j H is not right to destroy the power of 1 those states because they happen, at J the present time, to be woefully weak ) in comparison with the Democratic party j in their respective states. This, then, is ! the question which will confront the Re- j publicans in every state in the Union, I according to the decision just reached by the Republican national committee, a thy will be called upon to vote on the system of representation when their state conventions meet. Present justice seems to demand that there ought to be a change over the present system or representation, which will make the pow er of the several states in the national convention somewhat more nearly com mensurate with the strength of the Re publican party in those states.
