Huni.it: uriMTircft commission. Ihe, formal announcement la made that the commission appointed, by the general assembly in Inquire Into the advisability of establishing here In the State of Connecticut a public utilities eomml8lon similar to that existing In the State of New York will visit Xew Haven next Monday and give a public hearing at the rooms of the supreme court In the. county building. This will be the second hearing granted by the commission and It 1 thought may he the Inst. By that time the commission Tielleves It will have before It, In ornl and written testimony, whatever Is no. cessary to aid It In making Its report to the legislature which Is to alt next winter. ' It goes without raying that a goodly attendance of representative men st the approaching hearing Is essential to the movement. No open-minded com mittee of Inquiry could be expected to Itself take an Interest In a movement which lacked the support of public opinion. The great trouble has been In this State that the public, In mat ters affecting the chartering and con trol of public service corporations, has either been too Insufficiently Informed with regard to action taken hy the genral assembly or It has neglected the opportunities! given It to under stand what has been done, and badly one. with flip states novver. k the. la aisumcieni reason ror tne purine now toVform an opinion regarding this movement to anticipate more badly done things In the future and forbid them. Those, who have looked Into the workings of the public service com missions In the State f New York, Wisconsin and Massachusetts, and who have drawn from what they have learned conclusions which they bc- llove can he useful to the State of j Connecticut, ought to make It a point to attend Monday's hearing and give the Investigating dnmmlsslon the ben efit of them. Those to whom the sub ject comes with the confusion of a -suddenly expressed thought should at tend the hearing In order to better Inform themselves. If these various forces are brought together, each play ing upon the other in a way to pro voke thought and stimulate Investiga tion, the result can only he such a re port from the commission and such a law ns shall aid the State government In the adequate protection of the pub lic against the possible cupidity of or ganized capital. Thus far the public service corpora tions of the State have confined their Interest In the movement to such cor respondence as they have had with the secretary of the commission. It is of course certain that later their at titude will bo disclosed in the report, for obviously there can he nothing con fidential In an Investigation of Ibis character. The movement Is elthi-r un dertaken In behalf of the public for the public advantage, or It Is without standing In pollln, society. This enti tles the public to know Just what, those have In mind who have planned this enterprise and Just, what those have In .mind who possibly either resent the proposition, or seek to direct, the form It fthnll finally take. The originators at the movement have from the start definitely asserted that their object as, not to embarrass the public ser vice corporations In the management of their business enterprises by the Im position of frivolous or excessively re strictive acts, but to perfect a situa tion under which nil of the vlrtu"H of conceded private monopoly may he freely exercised, while noun of the Vices may come Into play. That Is omethlng which every honestly con cluded public service nrpnnitlou ought to approve; It Is ccrtuliily something which every corruptly managed public service corporation ought to want to oppose. It. would add, then, a great deal of Interest to the hearing on Monday If thi; public service corpora tions would send to II men nutliorluod , to speak for them and tell, not alone the commission hut the public, Just 'what their views are of the proposed permanent commission nles. It Is reasonably clear that a Reneral assembly meeting only once In twenty-four months and then for six months being pressed by a. thousand mutters of conflicting interest, cannot give the needed public assurance. That this substitute governmental tool should bo of the finest texture and the cleanest finish must be admitted, while the very demand for It precon ceives a free . exchange of opinion among all interested. Of especial Interest Is the suggestion that the, proposed commission would virtually establish government owner ship, at least to the extent to which It would weaken corporate Independence. It would be Informing to learn what the corporations think about this, espe cially If the biggest of them should take what at present appears to lie the solid position, namely that unless some sort of a working partnership can be created between the corporation and tile government, a more radical recom mendation will be made and adopted. The State of Connecticut was many years coming to the point of recogniz ing a natural monopoly but In no souse of the word whs the act of recognition ft surrender to It, The situation, there fore, being what It Is, It would appear to he the part of wisdom to d Incurs now the ways and nicsns of control and not. postpone It until the temper of the public has become rulfled. knowledged that Russia had' through the war with Japan lost nothing of her historical Inheritance, but only what not long ago belonged to Japan, and geographically and economically gravi tated towards that Tower, like South Sakhalin, or else the result ui' enter prises not consonant with Russia's ac tual strength, like the enterprises in South Manchuria or the Kwung-tung peninsula. The heroism of Russian sol diers still remained IntJct, the unity oC Russia was still unimpaired, Therefore, there was really nothing to proven Russia from entertaining the most friendly feelings for Japan. Tills is one way of looking at it, and undoubtedly the best way. It may yet appear that Japan has conferred great benefits on Russia by licking her. with an emphatic, expression which hn.s been translated "There now!" Thl doesn't sound so very ancient. Letters very much like it could be and are discovered in these days.

It Is further asserted that this persuader will be able to shoot from London to I'arls. Incidentally this seems to make Hip navies and coast defences of the world useless, or almost useless. There have been things before that have threat ened to do that and haven't done It. This may be the time when It Is done. If It Is about all the nations can do Is to Invest In some of these cannon and then agree use them. with each other not to 1 UK V. M. f. . The pithllc report of the trustee of the New Hi von Young Men's Christian Asoclatlon bears out the statements made In the editorial columns of The Morning Journal-Courier. The associa tion Is very heavily In debt and In debt at a time when It Is out of the question to attempt to piy It from contributions received from generous friends. The trustees have mapped out the proper course to pursue and while It I I'M It MAI, MHAMMI, As "the Aldrich bill or nolhlng" busi ness goes on the meaning of It grows plainer and planer. Mr. Klmcr H. Yonngman, the editor of the Hankers' Magazine, In a communication to the New York' Kvenlng I'ost, characterizes the bill as It ought to be characterized when he calls II a direct and serious menace to American prosperity. He points out that In, the past ! n years the circulation of the national banks has Increased from a total of about $2no.nnii,nao to over jr.nn.onn.nno. Now It is proposed by the Aldrich bill to pro vide Tor an addition of $:,nn.iiao,fioo more of this form of money to our cii - cul.ilion, at single stroke. This tre mendous Increase of Ihe count t'5 's pi per money Is to be made without re quiring the coin reserves of the hanks to be strengthened to the extent of u single dollir. And yet some of the ad vocates of the Aldrich bill have hcen audiiflons enouuh to say that It w-isn't an Inflation measure. Mr. Youngerman further says that by passing the bill we shall Inform the world tint we have provided our security markets with a practically unlimited supply of stimu lant In the shape of paper "money," and that we have no Intention of re forming, but that we meiu to keep up Ihe speculative debauch. (if course there can be but one end to that, and that Is a panic even worse than the one we have bad. It Is to he hoped tint something will happen to defeat the s 'hemcrs In this Important matter. The Culled States has had trouble enough for awhile. Why deliberately sow the seeds o more? iu.i Am p rnonoTiov, The poet truly says that high minded men constitute u State, and TIMIMJ Till Mini!. The lire department Is belngJieard from (i plenty. First comes Superin tendent (.! rant of tip' telegraph sys tem, pointing out tile dire necessity of 'a lire-proof headquarters where the delicate Instruments of the alarm ap paratus could lie stored without possi bility of damage, Then conies Com missioner Kegelmcyer, president of the hoard, also expressing his apprec iation of tins need of such a head quarters and his coniidence that an appropriation of 000 will be ask ed for when the 1900 estimates are matin out. The commissioner also hopes for a system of tire alarm tele raph, entirely new, such as will not be so obsolete and antiquated as the present one, And, finally, the chief Is quoted as wanting a new truck com pany, and an Increase In the number of nun in each of the companies to twelve and as recommending "Unit a number of our older ennlncs be re placed with more modern apparatus." A stranger, reading those state ments which have bei n ma le in short sequence fo each other, might think New Haven's lire department Is a rather antiquated affair. New Haven ers know such is far from bcim; the case. New Haveners are proud of their tire cb parltnciit and of Its chief. An enviable reoio.il necessitates it. Rut It must be rimembcred that these r.i ntlemen are enthusiasts, as ambit ious for the most perfet t system of tire protection In the city of New Haven as even the lirn Insurance companies would have them be.
