Those who are acquainted with the congressman at large from the State of Connecticut, George E. Lllley of Waterburv, will wait for an investiga tion of his charges against the commit tee on naval affairs and a report, be fore they will be satisfied that he has suddenly entered upon the automatic manufacture of "hot air." Mr. Lllley is a man of a very practical turn of mind and not given to pipe-dreaming. He owes his entrance into public life to his courageous condemnation of poli tical graft and owes his continuance there to his imperturbability and infi nite good humor. In particular the people of the State of Connecticut, re gardless of party affiliations, will await further Information before sid ing with his enemies. Hels likely to prove his case if the opportunity is given him. If we understand him, Mr. Lllley charges that many of the committee on naval affairs arc manifestly moved by mercenary motives In substituting their judgment of the needs of the navy for the Judgment of the navy department and the naval officers. He refers to the action of the committee in appropriating for a larger number of submarine torpedo boats than the navy department has recommended He has In mind In particular the makers of the Holland' type "of sub' marines, who he asserts have usurp' ed the power of the President of the United States and the Secretary of the Navy, and gained control of the house committee on naval affairs. According to his understanding, these submarine Bosses have been able in ways known to themselves to Induce the commit tee to override the judgment oif the navy . department with regard to an Improved type of submarine In behalf of a defective type, and they have been able to do this by having concerned themselves in the election of mem bers of congress and their appointment to the naval committee. He has In ad dition accused two Washington corre spondents connected with well known newspapers of being in the pay of the offending submarine boat-makers. They have already been suspended by their newspaper colleagues from the privileges of the press gallery pending a thorough Investigation. He asks that the house of representatives Investi gate for itself and ascertain what measure of truth there is in the chargeB. Naturally there are counter charges brought against Mr. Lllley. It Is Inti mated, for example, that he was dis appointed because a type of subma rine boat made In this State was re jected by the committee, and that in other ways he has been moved by pique and a love of gallery applause. If these things are true they can be readily substantiated but in the mean time they should not detract from the vital seriousness of Ms charges. It Is obvious that he runs a terrific risk if he is without the necessary ammuni tion to mow down his enemies when the Investigation comes. Among those of us who have a more or less Intelli gent comprehension1 of his character, there is a strong reluctance to believe that he Is shooting In the air for no better reason than to make a noise. That has not been the way in which he has made his fortune nor the way in which he hs:s made himself a fig ure In the political life of the State. Shrewd and nervy, he has " hitherto taken the direct path to the end In view, which justifies the opinion that he has probably done so In this In stance, and that !f he Is given the up portunlty to show his hand, under rules of investigation which permit him to send for papers and people, the truth will come out- At the same time it Is no mean task he has set him elf to purge the house of representa tives of untoward influences. It Is such a task as President Roosevelt delights In, a task which lines up. in opposi tion and obstruction the whole crew of nation-wreckers and political pol troons. We find It increasingly difficult to begin anew an understanding of Mr. j A LOCAL DISTURBANCE. Prophet Johnson's predictions con tinue- interesting. For yesterday he prophesied "a local disturbance." There was one. Old Winter was locally disturbed because the gay sun was making him understand that the pow er and the glory were not going to be his much longer. Prophet Johnson's intermediate dis turbances are only equalled in beauty and consolation by his local disturb ances. Both of them are good enough for anybody, and we hope he will be able to supply us with a few of each next month, in spite of the fact that during the early part ef the month the planets will be in positions simi lar to those in which they were at the time of the memorable blizzard of 1888. With a few intermediate and local disturbances In March the dread ed month will pass comfortably, and then the promise and the hope of Spring will be realized. It will not be long then before we can complain of the heat and the price of ice. many's 11 and the same number for France. She has 17 Inferior battle ships against Germany's 9, and 32 ar mored cruisers against Germany's 6 and France's 13. Ifge economies are, therefore, declared both desirable and expedient. But the ministerial organs say that the starting of the new Dreadnought type created a new sit uation and that England must be su preme in the new type as well as in the older and less powerful types of ships. A long lead in other types, it is urged, wotiM not suffice in the event of war under modern conditions, and the pledges of reduction, therefore, must be "regarded as modified" by the unexpected developments In naval construction. , Where will the United States be if it doesn't join In, this race? And how will its pocketbook look if it does? The report that an Illinois man died from drink'ing two quarts of water may be one of the preliminaries in a prohibition movement directed against water. be filled periodically by popular as sent, and it is equally simple to deter mine those to be filled by ascertained fitness. This done, the public judgment would be concentrated upon those which relate in their conduct to the public welfare. The first consequence of this arrangement would be to ele. vate the discriminating sense of the electorate a hundred per cent. Logical changes in the method of filling offices, which have been neces sarily multiplied in number since the doctrine of self-government was first promulgated, have not kept pace with the changes which have overtaken so ciety. They must now be Intelligently considered if the best results are to be looked for from a form of govern ment which has beer, fully vindicated in principle, it in a waste of useful en ergy to ask the electorate to do that which of itself bears 'no relation to the science of politics. Ht MAN NATl RE IN AN Al t" OMOBll.K They have a Highways Protection League in England, and they evident ly need it. The secretary of it reports that 932 automobile accidents oc curred In Great Britain in 1907, kill ing 215 persons and injuring 675. For these accidents and other motor car offences 2,270 persons were summon ed, of whom 2,046 were convicted. As the number of automobiles in use is estimated at 45,000, it would seem that one in about every twenty-two did something illegal last year. Occas ionally the same driver Is summoned more than once, but his license Is us ually revoked if it happens more than twice. 1 Human nature in an automobile seems to be pretty much alike wher ever it manifests itself. But it is an encouraging manifestation of it that the automobilists themselves are or ganizing and moving for the protec tion of other people and themselves There is such an organization in Mas sachusetts, and it Is doing efficient work. All the automoblists are not Wild ones, and many of them are wise ones. So' in the course of time a sport which has been seriously dnmnged by recklessness may be as well regarded as it deserves to be when considerate ly and humanely conducted. The Houston Post's announ'ment that Houston Is the whole ch??se will confirm some people in their notion that Houston Is a cheesy place. SKATINW ALONG. There is local pride everywhere and it is based on many things. Some of It in East Vassalboro, Maine, is based on the fact that the town has In one of its citizens, J. S. Butterfleld, a re markable man. He is perhaps most re markable because, though 84 years old, he goes skating every day when the ice is in good condition. He does not also go In swimming in the win ter, the notion to do that probably not harinrr struck him. Mr. Bntterfield's skating Is Interest ing and encouraging. Perhaps there is not another man In the country do ing whst he is doing. But the fact that there Is one is indicative of a good time coming when all men, In stead of dying before reaching 84, or living at a roor dying rate after reaching it, will go hopping, jumping, skipping and skating around. Why not? The eminent scientists are tell ing us that we ought to live to be any where from 100 to 140 years old, and perhaps by and by we shall know- how to and take Interest enough in the performance to do it. Mr. Butterfleld points the way and gaily skates In it. A western professor says that in en years all the cats in the country will have disappeared. Now let some oth er comforter arise and announce that then you can't hear them either. THE EXPANDERS. The rulers of Britannia mean to continue to rule the wave, if it takes a leg. and it now looks as if It would. Germany is going to be a great naval power if It takes a leg, and it seems likely to. She has announced her in tention of raising her fleet to the highest level and maintaining it there. The naval budget for 198 reaches 190.000,000. She is planning heavy ex penditures on new vessels, and has shortened the life of war ships by five years to prevent their be coming obsolete. 8he 13 bor- Lilley which we have not hitherto had. i rowing money to strengthen and for that reason the hope grows 'her fleet. All of which has. of course, and widens that the committee on j made a stir in England.

We use this caption in no offensive sense but in order to quickly get at the excessive number of public ser.vants the electors are asked each year In some form or other to elect. It Is Just beginning to dawn' upon people that they are asked to fill altogether too many offices and are obliged to bother their heads out of all proportion to the necessities of the case in order to keep up a political fiction, to the ef fect that each and every office must be filled by means of the ballot box. If '.he movement in this State to estab lish a direct primary system of nom inating public officers serves no other purpose than to emphasize the absurd ity of this fiction It will not have been begun In vain. The Journal-Courier has printed the news of the formation of an associa tion of postmasters last week. Later In the day many of them dined with the letter carriers' association, which was at the time in session In New Haven. While neither set of postal officials owes its incumbency of public office to popular, elections, a similar principle determines the official existence of the postmasters. A change in the political complexion of the federal admlnistra? tion means that all first-class post masters at any rate who are not In party sympathy with its alms are re moved at the first opportunity for oth ers, who know nothing of the cares of the office, and who are appointed be. cause they are numhered among the conspicuously faithful party workers at the polls. The clerks and letter car riers come under the civil service laws- and hold their positions during good behavior and efficient conduct. In the days previous to the enact ment of the civil service laws, when a postmaster was a partisan ringmaster, who used his office and the employes thereof for the benefit of his political organization, it mnde a difference who was put In charge, but to-day, when the great majority of the employes of the postofflce department are protect ed by the civil service law, It Is of no consequence whatever where the chief stands politically. In other words, with the postofflce taken out of practical politics the only consideration which should play any part, either In the appointment or retention In offlre of a postmaster, would be his ability to col lect and deliver the malls accurately and efficiently. Nothing was ever gain ed, for example, by the removal of Mr Sperry from tho postmastershlp of New Haven, and should a Democratic administration succeed the present ad ministration nothing would be gained by the appointment of a new post master, unless he was shown to be a more efficient man at the business. In a "speech before a.'Iocal military organization in Hartford Saturday evening Mayor Henney advanced this same idea from a different point of view. He declared that Hartford need ed a new city charter, one which rc ognizes the principle of single-headed responsibility, each administrative head to employ his own assistants and employes. In other words. Mayor Henney would reduce the number of public officials to be either elected or appointed. It is not a question with him of the success or failure of the present administration of affairs In that city, but of establishing and maintaining an administrative system which experience and observation have determined Is the likeliest to produce at all times excellent results. By plac ing each department uider a responsi ble head, and by applying the civil service principle to subordinate posi tions, there would at once be estab lished an administrative system of government which could be depended upon as much as any system depend ent upon human conduct and control can be relied upon. The nearer the municipality gets to business princi ples of guidance the better off it will lie from every conceivable point of view. Exactly the same thing Is true in the case of most of the State of ficers now either elected or appointed. It Is, for example, an almost Intoler able burden upon the electorate to compel it to fill the offlcf a of Secretary of State, comptroller and treasurer, while that method of filling those of fices aids in no way, nor does it hinder the progress of the people's business. Except as they benefit the party seek ing office in the distribution of favors they might better be filled and kept filled during good behavior. It is a per fertly simple matter to select the of fices which for obvious reasons should Sparkling Apenta" (Natural Apenta Carbonated), IN SPLITS ONLY.

Gibson county, Indiana, Isn't in the wildest and woolliest West, but there are people in It who are at least woolly. Moreover, they have the power of and the pay1 for teaching given them' They showed some of their quality the other day when at the an nual meeting of the teachers' institute they decided by unanimous vote to send a petition to the authorities at New York asking that Harry Thaw be released from the asylum at once. It was reported that the resolution was adopted "amid loud applause and handclapplng." It should be remem bered that these Indiana teachers were in session as an institute ano that the resolutions respecting Thaw were an official expression. In addition to the resolutions "several addresses were made by tho pedagogues In which Thaw was lauded for having slain Stanford White." Well, did you ever? will be the ques tion raised among Connecticut teach ers by that action. They wouldn't do such a thing as that. The fact that they wouldn't doesn't Indicate that they are not as free and Independent as the Indiana teachers are. Perhaps It Indicates that they are a trifle more conservatively thoughtful.

ADIHCII TO C HARLKSTO.V When the Houston (Texas) Post sees what has happened to Charles ton, South Carolina, It may not be ex actly envious, but It may try to con sole Itself with the thought and the assertlon,that Houston Is the boss spot In the Garden of Edem Meanwhile Charleston will h paxtlng Itself be cause the navy general board has rec ommended that the new navy yard at Charleston be made the base for the torpedo fWllla, and Secretary Metcalf has approved the recommendation. It is held that In time of peace the train ing of the crews of torpedo craft. In commission and reserve can best be accomplished under one head and at one place. It Is also desirable that ample resources for the repair of such vessels shall exist., tt Is likewise the opinion of the board that Charleston possesses advantage which render It desirable for selection as a has of the nature Indicated. The climate of Charleston Is well adapted for the purpose. The navy yard at that place Is approaching completion. In time of war the concentration of torpedo craft at any one place would be Inexpedi ent, and a certain number of vessels would have to be assigned to each navil district. The general board rec ommends that the Charleston yard be equipped for torpedo boat repair work of all sorts, that a sufficient number of slips shall be built 'to provide for torpedo boats In reserve and for sub marines, and that as soon as the yard Is ready aJI the reserve torpedo flotilla, both surface snd submarine, shall be sent to this yard, which shall there after be regarded as A torpedo boat headquarters. Of course this will be an Important boost for Charleston, which Is a fine city that Is apparently destined to grow much finer and much larger. A woman in Colorado is named Dinah Might.

Csnltal In New York is almost as timid as in Turkey. The reasons for this are very complicated. One may be suggested s quite evident. Railroads have been tyrannical and unjust and In resentment a number of statutes relat ing to "combinations in restraint ef trade," unequal rates, transporting coal from mineg owned, etc., have been passed, sometimes without much con sideration, and sometimes to gratify the. socialistic temper of certain con stituencies, so that it is difficult for corporation to keep within the law. The California commission reports sta tutory delinquencies on the part of the Southern Pacific, the penalties on which amount to jsn,onn,fo. This, If enforced Is simply confiscation of the stockhold ers' property. A lawsuit with the fnlted States Is a serious matter, for It Is against the richest plaintiff In Ihe world. The Judges are highly honored snd trusted, but must carry out the let ter of the law.

Me would probably hit the rab bit, and also seversi peaceable far mers. This Is one reason why we do not recover more rapidly from the effects of the crisis. The President of the I'nited States wields an enormous and practically irresponsible power, snd men do not know what sort of a man he is going to he. The most Important lesson of the past six months Is that prosperity is a very precarious condi tion, and may vanish In a month, and that the President ought to be a man of experience and Judgment and mod eration In speech. In view of our great resources and our rapid devel opment we h"e come to think tlist the progress of the Cnlted Rtates cannot be retarded. W e have believed that there Is a special providence for our country, ss tlvre is for drunkards and chil dren; that, if we make mistakes, we shall blunder through somehow, n matter who is President.
