FI, It Is nut at all surprising that a con troversy should have heeu started over the refusal of the police, or the commissioner of parks, to permit a mass meeting which was petitioned for In Union Square, Xew York, In nld of the unemployed. Such a contro versy Is to hp encouraged rather than discouraged. There is no par ticular right to which the American people cling with more tenacity than the right of free spee.-h. Rather than sacrlflro or abridge that they are ready to go to extremes. YVp certainly have no quarrel with that state of mind, hut the right to as semble in public, plarpg and exercise the guarantee of free speech must In each Instance he considered with ref erence to the time and place. As oftentimes happens when resent ment Is Indulged in because frep speech appears to have bee'n suppress ed unduly, the exact facts In the use are lost sight of In giving that re sentment Its necessary expression. Robert Hunter, who was denied the. chance to speak In Union Squar'i a , 1 week ago, has written to the newspa pers In defense of his rights as an American citizen and has evidently convinced many people that he has been badly abused. The Jpurnal Courler Is In receipt of letters warning it that Its attitude Is not abreast of the thought of thn times and continu ance In It can only Indict It In the name of old fogylsm. We should certainly agree to this suggestion If we wero to be counted among those who favor the suppression of the right of free speech. So far as Rob ert Hunter Is concerned In con ice- tlnn with the New York mass meeting from India will he re luced on a slid project he has no right to raise the ' lug scale, The only material condition question In the way he has. It vas neither the time nor the place for him to test, his convictions on thnt sunject. There la 110 right or power resting In his perron to arbitrarily set aside the laws of the state of Nw York, which "v .1... rtnMMHlnH HTA..I. 1 rill.... I. .1U vhiH companion, Morris IflMqnltt, did not undertake to do. The refusal of the proper authorities to approve the proposed meeting luid been recorded, and whether that refusal was right or wrong In principle. It registered the will of thn government which Mr. Hunter as a citizen linn sworn to up hold and support. It was Mr: Hunt- er's defiance of the law that has brought him under merited conie.npt and criticism. It was Mr. Ifilhiultt's acquiescence In the law which has earned him a deserved reputation as a peace loving nnd orderly cltlr.cn. The right to assemble and the right to speak freely Introduce for consid eration a Subject with which the per so m1lt of Mr. Hunter Iihs nothing to do, Hooking at the proposed New Turk meeting at a distance of one 1 hundred miles nearly, we should say that It would have been better had I ho authorities given their assent o It, but we do not know the conditions at the momont which convinced ;hem that thnt particular meeting possess ed such explosive iiinlltleH that an 1 assent would luivw been a more or less deliberate approval of sinister mo tives, Hooked nt In n broad nnd tol erant spirit the right to assemble and Indulge In free speech ought, to be most carefully guarded by the govern ment, even to the point of patiently enduring the possible fracture of par liamentary speech. Jt has been well said that the government has more to fear from the secret assembly of a dozen discontented or listless or reck less men In a hidden cellar than It has from a mass meeting in public ad dressed by the nerccst nre-cHters In the country. It has been Hip policy of thn city government nf New Haven for many years to permit the free use of the historic old Green fur the dis cussion of every known theory of so cial Improvement, nnd It has been a policy which has vindicated Itself. During the summer months scarcely an evening passes hut that some phil osopher 1no.1nts.to the band stnnd and has his say. Oftentimes his language IS radical find even Inflammatory, but there has never been a time when It would hove been good Judgment for the authorities to Intervene nnd scimmand silence The great virtue of tho old New England town meet ing riM the open Held It provided for the expression of free speech, ' The explosion Which follows free Speech and free exercise of the right to as semble Ih Insignificant, as compared with tin1 explosion which follows so erot plotting nml concealed confer ence, .Mull begins to ho dangerous when restrictions are put upon his conduct which fret nml nnnoy him without serving a purpose approved hy experience. Not' Is this view of the right to as semble nml talk to lie modified In any way hi'ciiuse of the improbability of the proposed New York muss meeting doing anybody the slightest good. The prohlem of the unemployed In solved In no such ensy manner. Hut a mis taken confidence In such an undertak ing nffects In no wny the educational anil restraining Inlliicnce of speaking one's mind out. It Is h fact that freo speech hoth sobers nml softens the speaker, for It Imposes a sense of res ponsibility which Hiih-cniiseloiisly enn- trolR ,, ,,,,.,. to ,,,,. tail ,;,,. ert Hunter followed the example of Morris Hllhiultt and by obeying the law prepared himself to argue thn right of the people of that city to as semble and talk he would have done something which might have benefit ed the men and women In whose name lie Inaugurated the orlglnnl move ment. T.y acting otherwise he hns confused the entire question In the popular mind. While Mr. Raekup of Pennsylvania Is trying to reach a seat In congress, Mr. Weakly of Ht. Joseph, Missouri, Is run ning for mayor. THK Jr'.Pxn t'OXf FWT. The public should give henrty sup port to the patriotic and philanthropic concert which Professor Benjamin Jcp snn has arranged fur this evening In the auditorium of the High school for the benefit of those who are In distress on account of the prevailing hulnss depression. Kvery cent taken In at the door will be devoted to the cans. Professor .lepso Vs servl"es, the ser vices of the musicians, the services of all who have In any wiy contributed to the undertaking, have been given free. It remains for the public to do Its part nn1 In fcnrlmf enjoyment f,ir Itself di) good unto others. An excellent program has been arrange and It Is needless to say that under the con ductorshlp of the veteran musician the evening will be one of pleasure. not K.nv kuwdy. .Hrltlsh greed has been much spoken of In the talk about the curse of opium In China and the effons to mitigate It. Kor a greed that has been pictured as that hns been. It now makes a pretty respectable showing. It appears that an agreement has been entered Into be. twern (rent Hritaln and China- by which the annual exportation of opium seems to be th it China shall simul taneously curtail her home production, chest for rhest, with the curtailment of the Indian exports. It appears that the agreement Is based on the ten year plan of the chlnesp government for the gnulml enforcement of the law against selling and consumption. Kx- I . ... tl.A cnvifln'lt nfrii.r i.inrn .if In.. In w j pons from Indls to China and Hong Kong now amount to around fifty 'thousand chests annually, and the an nual Installment prescribed for reduc tion Is around five thousand chests. This Is a good deal bettor than some things that are filled business. With 1 heathen I'hlna and Christian Knglnn.1 working together to mitigate the opium curse the outlook that It will really be mitigated Ik good. Hunting places and means to live Is a general and absorbing kind of hunt ing, but It Is not yet recognized as one of the sports. A TnrTH' hHl n. At the time of the holldais. when shopping In the heart nf the city went mad, as It Is always wont to do, Chief CowIps gave out In interviews some excellent Ideas, as It would seem, up on the question of street traffic regu lation. The working out of the chief's Ideas came with the mounted officers stationed al, Intervals nhoiit the shop ping district. Since that time all of the mounted force that has been in evidence has been one man who has taken up his position permanently on nominated a ftrong Stale ticket, hcud Church street, near the corner of j ed hy Thomas It. Marshall, a leading Ohapel, This is not the first lime that the Journal-Courier haa treated of New Hav.-n's street traffic of late, At an other lime a irafllc regulation was proposed, such as l now (11 force in Hartford with great success ns far 11s facilitating mntters Is .concerned. It would provide that drivers of vehicles must draw up to the curb with the wheels of the right side In the gutter, it. Is still 'believed Hint such a. regula tion would simplify matters, especial ly around the vortex at Church mid Chapel streets, which Is becoming more and mure of a problem ns the years go on. It Is rather unfortunate thnt this should he (he ensn. It would seem thnt the time Is sure to come when the Idea nf having every trolley car In the city cross this one Intersec tion will have to bp abandoned. Al- ready the rnllrnad officials have been dropping hints about sinking the I Church street tracks, where they cross the trucks of Chapel street, at some- time 111 the ltn.7,y future. The ii'itflle rule proposed would help nialtera considerably, It Is believed, but tin' further development of the chief Idea of a truffle sqtuul would do more, At least at the corner men tioned, anil piiw.-tlbly Stale and Chapel streeis as well, It would seem that a replica of New York's now famous traffic squad might well he established. As they do there, let them have em broidered wheels and horses' head upon their peeves, If you will, hut se lect dependable men and clothe them with a little authority In line with that the London "copper" boasts, who, when he merely holds up hid linger, can stop every vehicle In sight, even to Hint of the king. In New York these traffic officers are equipped with shrill whistle. Hy blowing them they allow. all varieties of traffic (Including trolley cars, wagons, cm-rlngr and autos) to pass freely across, tho Inter section In parallel directions, as either north or south, before the whistle In blown and they start going the other way, which would he east or wcxt. With great firmness the rule that traf fic must alwnvH keep to the right l enforced. Any driver that violates any of the regulations U summarily denlt with. To-uy at t'hnrch and Chapel streets the traffic Is regulated as much by the starters of the trolley company as It Is by the police of the city. The fact that the company has chosen that comer for its starters and tlmcra should make no difference. The start ers can regulate the cars successfullj but they bave no Jurisdiction over the vehicles, often, when the cars are crossing north and south, the auto and wagons are picking their way through from ast to west with the resulting danger of collisions and ae cldents. The situation should be bet ter systematized. Therp should be or der where there Is now chaos and the man to bring It about Is Chief t'owles. Accidents are hut narrowly avoided almost hourly at the crossing. Two policemen on foot, each with a whistle and a vestige of authority, ns In New York, could do far better, It Is be lieved, than . at present when there Is one mounted policeman and one on foot, i,et us have the nrteleus of a real traffic squad. The saMy "f Hfn and limb demands It. The Question. Can monkejs reienn? Is going the rounds agHln.

The government would hive to btiv twenty square miles of land from the Indians at $1.15 an acre. The purchase of the bnd and the fencing would, It Is estimated, cost $'AWI0.

The Ivmocrats have Iswyer, snd are said to be In betlcr shape Ihnn at any time since )Sn2. Indiana was long a doubtful State, and its action was tint always to be foretold, even under rlrcunirtanrri uanally deemed Indicative of a com. mnnlly's choice. In ISK8 It gave Har rison hut plurality, nnd four years Inter It ncnl IVinocrHtlc by more than T.Onn. for the last twelve years Indiana hn. appeared so surely Republican that the assumption has been that Its nlleplance Is unshakable, In 1(104 Uoos.'vclt carried It by almost M.ffOn; hut two years ago the Repub lican candidate for seeretnry of state had hut nr., flllO to the (rood. The elec 1 1 'Hi of IHOII was what Is locally known as 'Vpeckled," The lietnocrHls gained three congressmen, while soin,. of the Republican candidates barely puller through. Representatives Cha- j ney, Gllhams and Ruck, Republicans, j had pluralities respectively of but .140, I 860 and 207. The, Democrats talk of I gaining two or three seats. In Novem- t her, There m.iy poetry In the hi? more Idea that Indiana Is 1 doubtful, Hut It Is early yet, mid when I he warm pidltlca weather comes there may be a decided change in tho situation. When the line-up Is made Indiana may conclude that she 1 a n't afford to gu lieniucrni Ic, or even lie doubtful.

When posterity In Evanston gels th'i benefit of thosi maples II will feel as grateful as pos terity In New Haven does on account of the graceful elms so thoughtfully planted by the forefathers and others. It Is being seen all around that a very llttlp attention to tree-planting by forefathers pays large dividends to posterity. The forefathers of the pres ent day should hasten to mak tree-ln-vestmnt for the good of posterity. i-ontTFti. n noMiTin. The chief of the National Weather Hurean Is reported as saying that the ery changeable weather of New Eng land Is what has msde the New Eng ender the forceful, dominating spirit that he has proved himself to he throughout the country. Perhaps It Is at least a mild exag geration to Bcrlhe the New England- er to his weather in the way Chief Moore seems to have done. other Influences than those which are clim atic In New England have entered In to the New Englander and worked In hlni. Still. It is not to be denied that one subject to the New England weather Is pretty apt to be kept active by It. It changes as It llsteth, and It llsteth a good desl, Hut there are worse places to live In than New Eng land many of them. Perhaps those of us who live here ran flatter our selves with the notion that we are forceful and dominating, even If wh are niore or less dominated by thn weather. OME FX A Mt'l.F.
