Hunter explains that he did not know until ha reached I'nlon Fqunre that the police -hAd forbidden the proposed mass meet Ins, representing the government' of the city of yew York, ft w is then that ho evolved the brilliant but lawless Idea that It would be a good thing for j the cause of which he Is such an Im- j presslve exponent to lest the right, of! free rpeeeh.

It Is nevertheless true that 10 a definite 'degree tbe lenpotislblllty fori the act of H0II15 Sllversteln, who threw the bomb, can be traced to the violent; teachings of Hobert Hunter, The foot j should he driven home until people 1 le.arn thut an upholder of violence Is a j vicious person per se, whether he ful-1 nilnates from a clnlr In one of thj universities or from the tall end of a push-cart In the crowded tenement dis tricts of a great city. Had Mr. Hunter been a reasoning man ho would have known thtt such a mass meeting as he end his friends planned could not pos sibly do the proposed beneflclarleH of It a particle of good, while the mere as sembly of such a vast crowd of dis tressed people provided the , spurk necessary to start a coiill-jgratloti. The mere thoughtlessness of the man of It self constitutes his certllicale for reck lessness. It sets him apart from that not small school of trained socialists and annrelilsts who secure listeners mid supporters because tif the peaceful 'manner In whreli they disseminate their doctrines. It locates him surely among those who bawl in the market place ie Kardlffls of the temper of the crowd, who defame men In responsible posl- . tlnns because they Hrk the Intelligence to analyze and weigh motives, who sub-1 utltute progress through clamor for) progress through reason, who preach the hatred of capital while seeking Its possession or already enjoying Us phy rlcal comforts and personal Indcpentl- once, who exploit poverty ,0 Indulge In the unrest ol' It, ho 'oppose Mil' relief i of distress by a"hiilte methods lip-j cause they Mil si'iillniontallMii, a n-I 1 who 11 null y In their Inability to under- stand oven the rlri-uniferciice of the I Wirl.i of il 1st ropH hiIiI to tin- xerioiisnei.s j of tlii probli'in by violently mlxliiK In with experimental philosophies of man ifest WortllleflRIIPP.

If the phrase "rulers and rul ed" died too, end If social philoso phers would cease to drone nut their weary Ineptitude that "Kait, la Mast anil West Is West," the situation would' be much eased. Put, above all, I suggest that our Judgea and Jurymen should re turn to the old principle of eciinl jus tice for all races of men, and that cer tain of our public officials should cease to read other people's letters. These recommendations seem so en tirely reasonable that It. Is to be hoped they will be adopted, but the r'ngllsh are "conservative," nnd some times they don't pay mint) nttenllon to a radical one, or even a mildly criti cal one, (rovernor Johnson Is willing to be understood as being a pnsnlve randl cln.le for the presidency, but. bo doesn't want passive printed "passing."

Though It was snld that the gun- risrs r the T'nlled Stales navy who took part In the Spanlidi war were so poorly trained for their work that they couldn't hit the Atlantic ocean the condition of the Spanish ships I knowledge or consent of his principal, after the battle showed that that say-j employer or master requests or ac Intf wasn't quite true.

Hut It la evident, thnt nt least snmn of them run now, A report which h:iti hern received from Battery Worth, itt Fort Casey, WaaliliiKtnii, contains a record of four shot, fired In three minutes and llfly-threp sec onds at a moving tni'Ret, at a, mean ranse of 7.0 1 a yards, nil of which were lilts, the four projectiles passing" tliroiiKh a rectangle of yards high by 12.4 jnrds wide, The target, was nmvlng at the rate of 7.

Mhvlously I his did not militate aaalnst the accuracy of the shooting, rlespltn the fact that the range was approximately twenty- five hundred yards greater than that at, which the navy ordinarily Urea.

O.'H (illll(,t; AMI ASHKS, The tlov seems to be ripe for a rad ical change In the city's method of col lecting garbage nnd ashes. The pass ing of lime naturally mnkes radical change n n city's method of doing things. On e n volunteer fire depart ment (xlsteu in .'ew Haven, p was justified because It met satisfactorily the conditions nf hand. Hut the lime came wltb the growth of the city when a permanent fire department was Imperative. It wan created. The time will come when the citizens will real ize how fuly provincial ,mr present synletn of fire bells, ringing all over tbe city, Is. This paper Is of the opln Ion that New Haven has outgrown this hi II system long ago. Some day It too will go. Exactly th" same ma,V(be said of the collection nf carbage and ashes. At present they n e collected upon private contracts and not by the city as they should he In any place ef the size of N'ew Haven The reu!t In Infrequent ccllecllons, especially of the ashes, nnd unsightly and unhealthftilplles of refuse hi the back yards everywhere. There are no stroncer arguments In favor of a city system of sewers than there are that eurh a conditions this should not exist. No matter what th" theoretical efn-lfticy nf the present arratisenient may he. It dors not work well In prac tice nnd a rhang' 9111st be effected, The Journal-Courier believes that the j change should come by creating a city j garbage nnd ashes collecting dpart j inept, run pe'haps In conjunction ulth ! the street olcinlnc department, hut, at 'any rate, Conducted under city mon- i . . agetnent so that when eonipbilnlj come, the trouble may be laid publicly at the proper dor. At present tbc-e Is one man who has the contract for the collection of th" garbage In the western half of tbe city. It Is sill tlvit some of the cit izens In that part of the city have not seen n garhag" cart In months. .More over the health board authorities seem to show either no 'nelhiatlou nr mi power to better matters. M Is finite cenerally lh custom of New Hnven e's to pile 111 th'lr winter's ahes In th rear of their homes ami have them ! carted cT by the wign load In the ! spring. It Is at this time of the jear that the denning out method start and the ."mount i.f uidus that are car- tied away from some place would as-; lolikll th mciKt skeptlml, j New York has a system of tliiee col- lection. 1 in,.

The three varieties of carls j make their rounds every day; not once : a month or so. Th" ashes and par- j bai;e are eel out by the householders back of the building line. There Is a stric t rule about the latter. Malfer for the paper and general refuse wagon is only c illecled when a card of n pern liar and noticeable charactrr Is dis placed In the windows of the houses. The plan in such detail could not well be worked out at present In New Ha ven. II would he lather premature to propose II now. Put garbage and oth er collections should be made regular ly two or three times a week. It would make for Ih" health of the city, If tlil cannot be ni nipllshnc hy private concerns, It can by municipal action. Then If theri- Is any trouble, ihe man to blame can be easily reached. IIOM1ST AMI 0.TITI TION 1I N'ew York has a lot of good laws for a, Klate where such a lot of bad things are done. ( trie of them pro vides that, whoever gives, offers or promises an agent, employe or ser vant any gift or gratuity whatsoever, without the knowledge and consent of the principal, cinploj er or master of such agent, employe or servant, with Intent, to Influence his action In relation to his principal's, employer's or master's business: or an agent, em ploye or servant who. without the to make a gift or to do an net. henefl- rlil to himself, under an agreement or with an understanding that, he ' shall act In any particular manner to his principal's, employer's or muster's business; (r (in agent, employer or servant, who, being authorized to procure materials, supplies or other articles, either by purchase or con tract, for his principal, employer or master, receives directly or Indirectly, for himself or for another, a comnila . I n . discount or bonus from the per son who makes such sale or contract, or furnishes such materials, supplies or other article, or from a person who renders such service or labor, and any per.-oiii who gives or offers such an agent, employe or servant such com mission, discount or bonus, shall be guilty of a, misdemeanor mid shall ho punished by a line of not less'than $10 nor more than $500, or by such Hue and by Imprisonment for not more than one year. The Supreme court of New York has Just upheld this law as constitu tional, and lias held that a manufac turer of certain goods who had made a sab' by paying a purchasing agent a commission of R per cent, on the amount of the purchase could not re cover either the price of the poods or the goods themselves. This decision may not make honesty auy more pop nlar In New Vnrk, hut It will tend to call some attention to It, Money talks, and some days the Ciould money senna to be whispering hard nothings to Prince I (idle.
