The Morning JournaNCourler has al ready called at lent Ion In Its editorial and news columns to the enormous docket presented to the' criminal side of the superior court 111 this county yesterday. Editorially the docket was discussed from the point of view of the duty Involved of the Judge, the prosecuting officers and the Jury, who have .something higher and better to do than to punish. The most successful administration of the' criminal law which can be conceived of Is where the prisons and Jails are emptied of their contents and not refilled. Civilized so ciety long ago concluded, and conclud ed wisely, that Its first undertaking In the care of the criminal and the vicious is to reclaim, and rekindle If possible the fires of respectable citizenship. We look confidently to Hint disposition of the cases now claiming the attention of he superior court. There Is, however, another phase of this phenomenal docket which should not be lost, sight of by those men who' aspire, to alt In the hulls of legislation and make laws for the further protec tion and development of society. At the present moment the state's prison at Wethersfleld la within twenty or twenty-five of accommodating Its full number, When that small number has been received within the next few weeks, the warden of the prison will be obliged to notify the sheriffs of the eight counties to bring no more con victs to Wethersfleld, and the sheriffs In turn will be obliged to fill up the Jails. Then at once a problem will be in the forming, which In Its final solu tion will directly bear upon the prison policy of the State. If the prevailing policy Is to be persisted In, the general assembly will have to appropriate a considerable sum of money for an ad dition to the prison. If, on the other hand, the prevailing policy Is to be more carefully analyzed Hnd the exper ience of olher Statra Is to be consider ed, then the project to establish a State reformatory will take on form and substance. In other words, Just as those have thought atifl predicted who have wadheil the growth of the State In population . and the corresponding growth In the criminal population, there is no way out of the situation except by either adding to the prison as It Is or supplementing Its enforced use fulness by erecting a reformatory for thft, Incarceration of first offenders be tween sixteen and twenty-five years of age. The legislature nf 1003 authorized the governor to appoint a commission to Inquire Into Htate reformatories. War den Garvin was Its chairman, and he, ajnl his associates made a very thor- ' ough Investigation of the subject, trav eling thousands of miles lo Inspect re formatories already in exIsteifV in dlf- i ferent States of the I'nlon. The report, made to the general assembly of nifii, wllh Its complete plan for run: wing of the proponed building, was dm lured to be by expert criminologists the ;nnst ! convincing discussion of the hi Met t to be found In print. Pressed for ttrntvy, I the report was continued to the s.-wlon 1 of 1907, and In turn and for like rea sons continued to the legislative se.'sem of 1909. If, as seems Inevitable, the question of Increased prison facilities Is to confront the next general assem bly with all of the force of a practical need, It is Inconceivable that, a reform atory should be Ignored as prohahly the better and wiser way to solve the problem. The State nf Connecticut must, If Its criminal population out grows its prison facilities, as It has at this moment virtually clone, .make up its mind how best to meet the situa tion. So far 11s Imprisonment Is concern ed an addition to the Welhersfleld Insti tution will do the trick, hut so far its a . more mature and scientific scheme for the care of the criminal classes, both old and young, Is concerned a reform atory must, receive more consideration than has yet been pain It. Once let. the proposed reformatory receive from con ditions the Impetus which will be In consequence given it, and It will be realized that In no other way can Con- period of detention decided by those alone competent to pass upon It, the final 'results would be good for the prisoners, good for society and good for criminal Jurisprudence, It is rather dis couraging to think that an overcrowd ed docket and an overcrowded prison were required to give these Improve ments point and substance, but In so far as they have done so they can be borne with more than ordinary pa tieni e. made commercially useful. Cutler the terms of the resolution the Klsh and liame c'omnilsslon must devise some way whereby the fishermen will find It profitable to catch and bring ashore the thousands of dogfish which t!hey find In their nets nid on their hooks, rather than to throw them Into the sen to continue their work of de struction among the end mid macker el. Inventors lire now Invited to pre sent Idea.s for getting the oil from the dogfish without injuring the skin, which Is In demand for certain kinds of polishing work by cabinet maker In preference to sandpaper, It also works up Into various manufacturing purposes. Culinary scientists declare that the flesh of the dogfish Is an ap petizing food, If properly treated, but that public education shows a painful deficiency In appreciation. Two or three other "by-products" may be considered; the remainder of the car cass Is readily utilized for poultry food and for fertilizer. II Is sadly said that there is no pos sibility of exterminating the dogllsh, but It Is hoped that thp great damage It now does the fishing Industry of the North Atlantic can b.i mitigated. The .spectacle of Massachusetts pursuing the dogfish fa an Inspiring one. It is said that King Leopold of Bel gium has hardly a true friend In his kingdom now. Which indicates, docs It not, 'how much a king differs from a common man A sthoni; Anr;fiFT. Tljough the benevolent and beneflc ent I'nltcd States has provided .plen did otticcs for Its congressmen, there are other humble workers for the peo ple who nre not well-otrlced, 10 to speak. The sad condition of ihese public servants has attracted he at tention of Senator Scott, of West Vir ginia, and he hos spoken for ihem with zeal and Imprcsslvcness. Dur ing his speech he showed that in Ihe past ten years the rent paid for build ings used for government purposes In the District of Columbia has In creased nearly three times from U76.000 In 1S97 to Jilfi.OOO in 1907. He argued that $416,000 reprcMmted a two per cent, rate of Interest on over $;o, 000,000 and that this latter amount would build all the depart mental buildings needed by the gov ernment, lie referred to the crowd ed conditions of thn ileparlm Mtal buildings nnl of those structures which are being rented and used by the government, showing that, halls were utilized, windows closed up rind clerks forced to occupy quarter., which were almost unbearable. This Is not a year In which spend ing money even to save money looks attractive, but Senator St ott has cer tainly made a strong argument for more otllee-room. Sooner or later It will be had. The frilled States Is rich, but It can hardly afford to conllmie such a condition of things as Senator Scott describes. ANOTHER INVITATION. Louisiana has made a strong and definite bid for those who want to get back to the ground. The Induce ments offered are certainly gen 'rous. I Some of the other southern states ire calling attention to their merits as a home. Ceorgla Is one of them, and she particularly Invites the agrbMltur- Ist who has some capital, however small, to locate and Invest In the state. Ueorgla's good fortune In cli mate and soli is pointed out. Nearly every crop grown In the tenin.-rate zone, from the semi-tropical fruits and cgetablrs on the const and sen Islands, to the winter grains and hardy apple in the old red hills, can be pro dueed In ahundance. liarring 'aln, of which the average Is small but suf ficient to produce the crops of !h re gion, one can work outdoors :)ii.i das In every year, nnd produce some mar ketable crop each month. All this makes for the success of the small fanner located near the town, where a few acres carefully cultivated and properly managed prove proiltable to the new-comer, be he native of the United States or from the mores of Kurope, He Is happier, too, liv ing close to nntnre, nnd when a man once gets the ved soli of (loot-gin ground Into him. he always stays. And so forth and so nn. There Is no doubt that Georgia Is a good state. Why shouldn't good old 1 'onn-ctlcut be calling attention to her usefulness and beauty? What's the matter with coming to this state and working ott the land, meanwhile becoming force ful nnd dominating, as we were told only the dny the New Knglnnd .veat ti er makes us. hie conduct m these rooms, but the boy have evidently decided that they want to be on the safe side nnd appear In the proper light. It Is planned to Invite certain of the faculty members to visit the rooms to speak to the boys, whether or not Ihey were formerly members of the fratenilij, The pos sibilities of the organization will he made more apparent to those who would be likely fl:st to criticize. II is hut natural that, parents of boys should feel uneasy when the latter (go to rooms where they cannot follov them If they wish to, It Is because the parents realize far more than the boys that between fourteen and eighteen, which Is the age of most of them, Is one of the most critical In their lives. Now all fears, whether Justified or not, will be set at rest, fine of the most pleasing things In connection with the Incident Is the fact that similar actions on the purl nf the other fraternities at the high school may now be expected. A me in her of the faculty, wrlllng upon the subject. In a local teachers' periodical but n fortnight ago, decried more than any thing else the fact, that the fraternity hoys segregate themselves so that no one can tell what their real activities are, This, then, Is Just the sort nf a in form he would Ike lo see brought about. It Is a little too much for him to ask the boys to give up their fra ternal organizations at the high school The spirit of organization Is In the very air we breathe. Nowhere are there more fraternal organizations than In America. Nowhere in America are they stronger than In the colleges lAnd no life do high school srhobirs nnturally Imitate more than thai of the latter. The New Haven high school ha Vale as Its near-neighbor and the "Ways of Vale" are contagi ons. Mamma Delta Tsl has shown com mendable Initiative May the other so cieties follow suit.

Mom', nEovi.ATiov Franca is a country where the au tomobile for awhile wended Its way about as Its driver listed, but of late the French have been busy regulating It. A law has Just been enacted In France which punishes with a heavy fine and several months' Imprisonment any conducted or owner nf an automo bile, w ho, having caused any sort of an accident, or who, having been in a col lision with any other vehicle or Indi vidual or object, does not Immediately stop nnd give his name nnd address to Ihe police or tn other representatives of the law. This punishment Is lo b" specifically Imposed, quite Irrespective of the mo. Its nf the case Itself. Thus, the offender would be liable for double punishment; first, for not haxlng stopped to give his name und address, and second, for h.ivlng caused the ae cldeu.i. in Ihe other band, he might be held guiltless of wrong In the mat ter of the Occident Itself, but he would none the less certainly be punished In the first Instance. In short, the pur pmie of the new French law, which will, It Is expected, be Immediately enacted by all other Continental coun tries, Is to separately and specifically punbh the, chauffeur who, having been In nn accident, runs away without dis closing bis Identity. This Is entirely proper. It Is not a credit to human iinMire thai such a law Is necessary, hut us long as It Is It Is well to have it. , SHOOT VOW, If the United States navy couldn't shoot well before and during the Spanish war. as some of Its critics say, It can shoot well now. The prelimin ary reports received at the Navy de partment on the target practice of the battleships in Magdalena. Bay Indicate a gratifying and, In some respects, surprising accuracy. Many of the en listed men have had an opportunity t to worK ai ine kuiis i"i 1 101 mru unit-, l as a large fraction of the force had been admitted to the service shortly '. before tho departure of the fleet for ! Hampton Hoods. It was to be expect . ed, eonsefiurnlly, that the percentage of hits would not. be quite so good as , war, the cose at Guantanamo last, year, out. the marksmanship turns out. to : have been as good, If not better. This I Is attributed In part to the efficiency ! of the mechanism which now enters so largely into the operaflon of naval rifles and contribute In great measure to the accuracy of gunfire. The train ing' of guns has been reduced as much as possible to the operation of appli ances, and the rapidity of fire follow ing closely upon t'he aiming has done much to establish a large percenlage of hits. Good. Of course there is no desire In this country that, our battleships may do some real shooting before long, but it is pleasant to know that.
