GOVPRXMKXT IY OLIGARCHY. Stormy days have at lat overtaken the speaker of the houeo of represen tatlves, not because that speaker's name happens to be Cannon, but be cause the Inordinate power which li lodged In the hands of the speaker come to be an obstacle to the paseage of measures In which the Tresldpnt of the United States, obviously support ed by the popular judgment of the country and probably by a majority of the house itself, is Interested. In the absence of any euch combination In the past It has been difficult, If not Impos sible, to concentrate public attention upon the abuse of that powerful office. Now by making It appear that the rea son the country cannot get the relief It wants, or thinks It wants and In therefore entitled to, Is the Intervention of the speaker, with powers greater than the house itself with the Presi dent back of it, there Is a chance of euch a reform being undertaken In the organization of that body as to make both deliberation and action possible. The current number of the Outlook contains an article upon the oligarchial power of the speaker, which la bound to attract attention, especially as It gives a striking Illustration In pending legislation of what that officer can do If he merely takes a notion that he Is not In favor of what Is more or less generally approved. "What is of con sequence," it says, "Is the fact Illus trated that a Republican speaker Is able to block legislation demanded by a Republican administration and en forced by the practically unanimous opinion of. the Republican party throughout the country." It then prV ceeds to point out the disturbing fact that the nomination of committees rests with the speaker, who can make them up in euch a way as to advance the cause of measures, whleh have succeeded In attracting his attention and provoking his interest, and to Wock the progress of legislative enter prises to which he personally objecte. "Thus it Is possible," says the writer In the Outlook, "for the speaker, fore seeing the legislation likely to come before the house during an approach ing season to apolnt a committee cer tain to bo hostile to It, and to refer the proposed measure to that commit tee so that It may be smothered with out public debate." In Illustrating specifically the power of the speaker to absorb the powers of the house and use them to a personal end, the Outlook quotes the Appalachl- , an-Whlte Mountain bill, a measure for the preservation of certain of our great forests, which has been recommended by the President passed without dis sent by the senate and unanimously recommended by tho agricultural com mittee of the hnuso In the Fifty-ninth 1 congress. It Is commonly understood that Congressman Henry from this State lost the chairmanship of that committee, to which he should have been advanced, becHUso he dared vote contrary to tho private wishes of Mr, Cannon. In tho present, congress he has succeeded In having the bill re ferred to the Judiciary committer for a construction of Its constitutionality and receiving from that commltt"e, an ' opinion declaring its unconstitutional ity. "Tho house of representatives hi not even permit ted to consider the question whether It Is conut.ltutloiml and whether it Is wise. The whole question Is foreclosed by the speaker and a comtnltt.ee which he has appoint ed and to which he hns submitted it for a decision." This conduct l not too severely condemned as government by oligarchy. Then comes the consid eration of the two possible escapes from It, one by making the speaker of the house a Judicial oflicer, as In the British hoiwo of commons, charged with the single task of promoting the orderly administration of the business of the house, and the other by giving the minority, acting through ten per cent, of the membership of the house the power to demand a vote on the question whether any pending meas ure should not. be reported by a com mtttee, for consideration. Thnt some reform must be had In the power nf the speeker of the house! wanted to art In concert with the re l.i ohvlnim. An the outlook snys: "nin i puhllcnns nf ihe Mute they must nrt motive l Imtiinterlul. Tt may even he j quickly. Tim unit wns rendy. No co Hint he Ih rlKht. In thinking the lcg Inliitlnn Inexpedient, extravnRint, or even unconstitutional, That nlsn Ih lin innterlnl.1 The fundemontnl question Is nnt, Is thin hill wine?

The Outlook protects nttalnst suhstltutlnif government by ollfintvliy, however wise It may hp, for government hy tlin peo ple, however unwise tlipy mny he," The Issue could not bp more hfipplly phrased. Tt wns iipvpt the theory thut the penkershlp of the house should rnrry with It surh autoerntlo nnd ar bitrary powers. Those hnve rotne with Hie growth of the country and tlio In crease In the tU of that body, flnre they or evil powers anil subversive of American doctrines of government they must be hbnndoned, Nor Is there the nllffhteat reason to rloubt that the tAmerlean people will Ami a way to eliminate practices which operate ngulnst their Interests, when they real ize that to be the fact. Even the al iened plt'turesquenees nf Speaker Can non will not stand In their way. For once the town and the gown are together. Vale educated Taft and the "townlcs" have adopted him for their own. WOMF.N JAMTORR AT YALE. The announcement that the experi ment will be tried next fall nf having women take, care or tne rooms in van-1 derhllt Hall miy sem startling nnl novel but th Innovation seems to be needed. The announcement comes us the resuk of mature and careful thought on the part of the campus com mittee, on which are representatives of both the faculty and the students. The puhllo generally probably thinks that tho dormitory rooms at Yale are kept In the pink of condition, with hII the Janitors there are engaged In the work. The plain facts of the cafe are that the rooms are far from being as cleanly as the boys are used to at home, where the othpr spx look out for them, mid oftentimes, where a student Is unable or unwilling to "sweeten" both the bead "sweep" and the under "sweep" on his entry with tips as often as their majesties deem sufficient, he finds his room almost unlnhabltnble because of the dirt and the disorder. There are women, and thpy can eas ily be found, who would be only too glad to undertake this work and do It well without expectation of remunera tion other than that they receive at the bursnr's office. Such women could make the rooms more homelike and certainly more healthful than the pres ent Janitors ever have. Fuch a system as Is suggested for Vanderbllt next year it Is planned to extend throughout all the dormitories at a later date If It Is satisfactory. There seems to bo little cause for uncertainty on that j point. Vanderbllt Hall, where all arenms or the Society for Men'nl Hy- senlors and thus the most matured Klcne are: to co-ordinate the Impulses students, Is the very dormitory where It ' 'mse willing to help the cause; to would bo accorded the fairest trl.il. It become a permanent agency for edu- Is needless to pay that the women i-e- cation and reform It. the Held .,f ner- lected will be far beyond the alluring vuh and mental diseases; to Improve agp. As at Harvard and Pennsylvania, "iiditons among those actually In- where the eyr.tem has been In vogue with great success for years, only mid- dle-aged women, who are known to have a mania for severely punlshliu every sppek of dirt that comes within their observation, will he employed and only those who are thrown upon tholr own resources. It has bepn sugirested that In tho future "in;.-tead of having the bashful senior running: off with a chorus Klrl the novelists will have them eloping -with their 'Janitors'." Though the latter seems Improbable, It des seem certain that the bashful senior will be able to usher his best -beloved Into rooms that will be more like those at home when she come to see him graduate In June. Another year and all tho dormitories will have "lady sweeps." The children who find enjoymptit. in roller skating on the asphalted streets and pavement will not yet be de prived of their fun. If the autoa bother them and make the elimination of either or tho other from certain streets lieccwary, it will not be tho kids to go. AIITFII. T)OIX,lti. There Is an old theory that In catch ing birds the task is considerably lightened by placing first a quantity of salt on their tails. The difficulty In thus undertaking to outwit the elusive bird Is thnt his blrdjosty has an eye to the windward, and flies away while the poacher Is arranging his salt. For a j while, however, this understanding of the ignorance of the bird was thought to stimulate the salt Industry, but that Is no more. It Is without disrespect that we lik en In our thoughts the two United States Senators from Conned lent, Mot Kail G. Bulkeley and Frank Urantlesee, to birds threatened with a shot of salt. Thp Indomitable Taft men gatherer to gether nt. Hartford with Ihelr admir ably Arranged w;ir paint, on and In plaee. They cast their eyes over the. republican plantation and knew that.

It wiih fiili'k business, but It was ef fective rnniiRli to save the senators from help hen ten at their own ir.ime. There was no break In the Tnft line. It was work with us or work "airln" ns. The lout meSiinKe hnd Its effect. The birds flew away. Tby have escappd defeat; the republican bird catchers, wearlnpr the fimlle which won't come off, have plenty of silt on hand for an other trial later on.

A NPW a-OCIKTY, This country has been aptly des cribed as a nation of societies and Its populace ns tin rggregntlnn of pres idents, vice-presidents, secretaries and treasurers.

The Connecticut Sorleiy for Mental Hygiene, founded yesterday In this citv shows that there Is still room In some fields for organized eff u t on the pnrt of those liit' ii'.ited In the wel fare of mankind. This i w society comes Into rxlstcnce as a direct result of the efforts of Mr, Clifford Wllttllig hiim 1 leers, author nf Hint revolution izing and Interesting work, " Mind that Found Itself."

THP f'OHONKIt'S '01i.F,I.. Coroner 1011 Mix has made public two verdicts of great Interest, to the public. He Is satisfied that, the death of brave Lieutenant. Conlan was not caused by the "criminal act, omission or carelessness of any person or per sons and that, an Inquest. Is unneces sary," But he does find fault with certain of the fire department appa- nuns, He says that the heater which exploded and resulted In the (Irenian's death wax not provided with a safety valve a-'il, furthermore, that, It hft.i come to his attention that there afp similar heaters In other fire houie.i which have no valves. The coroner recommends 'that, all (team heaters used In these lire hnn.ten not so equip ped be at once so supplied with these safety appliances," Immediate nctlon In accordance with this, recommenda tlona seems Imperative, Our fire lad dies have to face enough daiiRer In every form whlln on active duty at ilre.s without It being neepj.snry for theni to live continually In Mi" tnldt of apparatus which Is capable of deal ing death and destruction without a moment's warning fJt has come to our attention that at onp llrehouse In the city the engin eer himself personally purchased and paid for a steam gauge to put on one of these heaters. Such an action as that should certainly be unnecessary, With Coroner Mix we believe that 'our Mre department apparatus and all Its equipment and .appliances should be of the most, modern and complete design and construction and thus afford our brave firemen, who Imperil their , lives almost dally, to tho utmost protection, which In the performance of their duties they are entitled to and to our citizens as com plete protection as Is po.-slblo from Iom of life and property." The coroner's other verdict bad to do with the sd death of little Sophy Suderman. Here fdmllnrly be found no one at fault. He la of the opinion that the chauffeur w.w "exercising all ilue caution at the time of the ueel dent, anl that be did all he knew how to do to prevent the fame." He may be perfectly Justified in his con clusions, liplng able, a.i he Ik, to qn Hon any and all eye wltnc. ;ie. of the accident that he can find, but (.till the opinion of the public fcctiprally seems to be that the chauffeur wa.s not en tirely wnmeicM. At Inst all are united In the belief that Mich nnfor tunate occurrence;! are becoming far too frequent. The coroner also has some recommendations to make In Hils connection I" order that there may not be mere accidents of a like nature at the corner of Church and Chapel streets. He believes the ror tier Is made more dangerous by the pres'ene of la'ge crowds that congre gate at, or ery near those four cor tn r.s, to get on or off or wait for the cars thnt start at these points. His MiKgestlon Is that the trolley cars be brought to a stop at a point mldwny on the block preceding the crossing. If would mean Inconvenience to some but would be a commendable safely precaution since It would materially b'.;en the number of people waiting at the corners. If this plan could be combined with the new system of trafllc policemen, which all hope will fnon take com mand at this place, we believe a long .tep will have been taken toward making these corners as safe as con ditions will allow. Hut even then It seems certain that the time will co'me wh'ti Hie trolley company will have to abandon lis present some what rural principle of having every line of cars pass over one Intersection. other streets will have to share the trolley trafllc with Chapel ft reel an I Church i (,.,.,,( Hartford congratulates Now Hi von "on that t ."iO.noi) worth of extra post otllee accommodation th" liberal sen ate has voted."
