TaeKday, June 23, IDOK. THE CLASS OF T8. The Tale class of 1878 Is In town, or perhaps In the lntereet of accurate history writing we should say that the town la In the class of 1878. There have been stray fears and concentrated ap prehensions that it would not be known that this class, which has now given the once famous class of 1S53 a fatal run for Us entraice fee, would find Itself ' lost amid other anniversary classes, which are back In the city with their great men, made and In the making, on parade. These etray fears and concentrsted apprehensions may now be laid aside. The class of '78 Is present and Accounted for. When John Addison Porter pave the class Its first Jolt upwards, from a rational point of significance, It Is said that President McKinley, whose affec tionate end efficient secretary he was, in time grew perturbed. One day the President turned to his secretary and Inquired ; "John have all of the unem- t, pioyea or trie class or 1878 been cared r?" "Yes, Mr. President," replied the faithful. John. "Then, John, we can proceed, I suppose, to estimate the worth of other aspirants, for federal usefulness." The generous persistence of Porter ten years ago has continued to bear fruit and trrtay the class of '78 Is the greatest class that has thus far undertaken to harnessfche government of the greatest country In the world and make It stand without hitching and eat from the hand. A person not unknown to fame, even as fame flits, William Howard Taft, Is a member of the famous class, though It Is to be questioned If any other member of the class would know to whom reference was made If be were snoken of or ad dressed In that pervasive manner. It Is "HI Bill" and "Ho Pill" and "H-y Bill" that goes with the lime light ers of that a?cregatlon. The members of this, class are a lit tle old now for original fatherhood but they are beginning to contribute to the , destruction of race suicide tendencies through grateful children, Prom to day all granisons will come Into the unsuspecting world named Bill, while the girls will break hearts under the fascinating Identification of Rlllie. IA, perpetual Injunction will be prayed out tomorrow against the use of these names: by members of other classes, who were the flrst to suggest Mr. Taft's name for President, and by the public at large. To help In this crus ade for the conservation of natural re sources will be a number of '78 men, who are on the spot today. Ohio will be under the Jurisdiction of "Hon," known In the outside world ae Judge ' Howard Holllster of Cincinnati. New Tork will be turned over for Its pro tection to two malefactors and unde sirable citizens, who will recover the favor in which they were formerly held March 4th nxt, and will be (ilrled as counsel by John Procter Clark, fin ear ly '78 man to assemble the people be hind Jilm. The malefactors are clar ence Kelsey, who manipulates the money market and Fred Potter, who keeps money In constant circulation. Charley Carter will run the spiritual side of the movement up In the State, of Massachusetts with occasional long distance advlco from Jim Flgott of New Haven and Connecticut. Harry , Hoyt, the solicitor general of the Unit ed States when at work, has agreed to influence tho judicial department of government and so. the movement which began In an orderly stroll along the beach of time has become a rol licking romp all along the shore. The Journal-Courier wishes it every success and welcomes with more than conven tional enthusiasm a class which had already accomplished the domination of the Yale corporation through the Joint efforts of Bill and Rip, and now teek the feathers of the' American eagle to adorn a '78 cap. We have indeed come upon huge and hearty times. Mn. nnvAN DEMrns. Mr. Bryan has found It Inconvenient or dangerous, as the case may be, to await the assembling of the Denver convention before letting that body say what It thinks of the Chicago platform. The point has been well taken that he appears to have devoted himself, In his public criticism, to what the republican platform omitted to say rather than to what it actually did say, which war rants the conclusion that the repub lican utterance Is all right so far as It goes. These are days of political as well as commercial hustle. Mr. Bryan labors undpr something of an embarrassment I'n thus early tack ling the republican platform. It Is pos itively necessary for him to do all thai, the republicans are willing to do and a, little bit more, Had' the rndlcals In the republican party taken the situa tion In hand and been yielded the com mand, they would probably have brought out a platform which he would have found It difficult to criticise. As It was, those In control of the committee on resolutions and the convention Itself went farther In anticipating the needs of the future than any republican con ventlon ever did. It might be aaid with truth that it sounds more like the work of a Tilden than the work of a Garfield. In that It turns upon ccftnln definite principles 'of democratic thought, as they existed until 18D6. It Is not a conservative document in the sense that conservatism controlled a quarter of a century ago, nor Is it rad l'ftl in the sens! that constitutional 11m Itatlons are Ignored. Mr. Bryan does not realize that the day for the radical consideration of problems which confront the country has passed. Appeals to human passions and human emotions, which are the at tributes of a campaign end not the at tributes of mature deliberation, have done all the work of which they are capable, with Invested capital and un employed labor demanding a chance to live. Nor does he realize that the can didacy of Mr. Taft draws Its greatest support from the knowledge men have of his sympathy for tho enforcement of the law, his hatred of methods which bear oppressively upon the masses of the people and hla reliance upon order ly means of affording relief. In other words, Mr. Bryan In his criticism of thei republican platform, forgets what Is sure to grow upon the voters of the country In the next three months, and In partlculnr upon the Independent vot ers, that Mr. Taft Is a platform In him self. Improving upon the ardor of tho Chicago platform adopted at Chicago by the Denver convention may be-ome a feat In phrase-making, but there Its usefulness will end so far as It In fluences the vote, which will this fall decide the contest. THE AV1N nOCK EPISODE. This Is no time to anticipate the ac- tlon of the court which will tomorrow have all of the facts laid before It In connection with the shooting match which occurred Sunday as a conse qunnce of state police Interference with the enforcement of the liquor laws There la every reason to believe that the borough court Is equal to a Jus weighing of the evidence and thus to an adequate protection of the borough Itself against lawlessness. The newspaper accounts aaree In sev eral Important details and on that ac count the future usefulness of the state police Is brought under consideration so far as this particular enterprise sheds, light upon It. The proprietors o the hotel where the shooting occurred and the state policemen agree tha when the latter asked to he served with drinks contrary to the law they were refused. In other words, these state po llcemen were unable to collect the evl dence needed to cause an arrest for violation of the law. Hay they been content with this failure on their part to establish lawessness and gone about their business It Is lneonrelvahle that a rough house could have followed, In cluding the pulling and shooting of pis tols. The spectacle of state policemen undertaking their lawful errand with guns In their pockets Is not such as t encourage one's faith In that depart ment of the state government and Its view of Its responsibility. There Is no place In tha state of Con nertlrtut where unusual Judgment should be exercised on Sunday as at Savin Rock, the playground and recrea tion spot of thousands of people who seek the cool breezes of the shore and an escape from the heat of the con gested quartets of the city. The strict regime of the country town cannot be enforced there and It should not be un dertaken in the absence of rowdyism flhd disorderly conduct. The conduct of the Sunday crowds at the shore Is each year better. The spirit that would ex ercise all of the arts of Sherlock Holmes In order to ferret out a possi ble violation of the laws, which under no circumstances constitutes a. shock to society as a whole when thus cunning ly entrapped, may Illustrate the power of modern methods of police search, but It has no understanding of the character of the average light-hearted American crowd. The Savin Rock shooting match points unerringly to the need there la for a more Intelligent study of the needs of the people of New Haven and the others who seek the shore for peaceful and proper pur poses. it ' 1 ! Don't let's worry or think about the heat. Then we'll feel a good deal cooler. NEW FAC.LAM) RESOinCES. The Springfield board of trade Is responsible for a very smslble sug gestion which has been made to Gov ernor Guild of Massachusetts. It Is that a general conference be held In New England which shall consider ways and means to preserve the sec tional resources In much the same manner that, the recent conference of governors In Washington rnet to con sider the national resources. It was a happy thought, whether original with the president or not, which led to the calling together of the governors and many of the Influ ential men of the country to consider such matters of weighty importance. There have been those who have doubted whether any practical result may be expected from a body such as that was, without any legislative powers. The meeting of the executive committees of the national resource commission, which Is an outgrowth of the recent governors' conference, Sat urday In conjunction with the Inland Waterways commission, seems to point to result that are realty prac tical and tangible, however. Many a good Idea has been abused by over use. But such, It seems. would not be the case with a New England conference called to consid er eectlonal resources. Such a conference could be appropriately called bv Governor Guild. With all due respect to our other local gover nors. Governor Guild, as the head of the largest New England state, a prominent figure In politics and a prominent personality, Is In a post tlon to take the Initiative and It Is hoped that he w(ll do so. Perhaps, If others of our sectional boards or trade and business men's association would take similar actions. Governor Guild could be brought to the firing line without difficulty. If there la any section of the country that has public spirited men, it Is New England,' and In spite of our well known conservat ism, some beneficial results may sure- ly be expected. One does not have to consider long Just what men of ac tlon and experience should be Invited to the conference. There are e. number of problems particularly Interesting locally that should he brought up, wide from the conservatism of resources. New Eng land to-day, and to a large extent Connecticut is suffering from lack of proper and consistent development. The abandoned farms, the waste lands, the undralned swamps and un- Irrlgated stretches of sand, aH offer their suggestions of commercial values. New England may well con elder how to get the best out of what It has as how to save what It Is now making use of. Besides this, there are transportation, health and a hun dred other prol lems that would come under the legitimate scope of such commission which could be to New England what'the New England Bus Iness Men's association Is to this city and the State Business Men's associa tion is to Connecticut. SOCIALISTIC LOGIC. Wllllnm D. Haywood, "undesirable citizen," had a number of novel sug gestlons to make Sunday night, such as men of his party are likely spring at any unpsj etiological mo ment. Not content with condemning Taft and Bryan and necessarily Roose velt who Is responsible, like a god father, for his unchristian cognomen, he went on to explnln how the social lets would do away with the presen olflcers of our government generally though how that Is consistent with the fact that ha himself wastill but nom Inatcd for the highest officer In the power of the people of this nation to confer, It Is not easy to see. Inrl dentally, our much-wronged and much-compla!nlng friend showed that he did not believe there should be any let up of political discussions even on Sunday. The method by which The Undesir able. One came to the conclusion that our present political leaders of both parties are far from being worthy of any faith was not a difficult one. Were any of them asked what should be done by the starving working man In a time of financial panic, they would not say: "Turn the country over the socialism." Therefore, they are not fit leaders of men. Mr. Hay wood's own descriptions of the one and only panacea for such an econ omic situation, Is an Interesting one, to say the least. "Turn the reins of government over to the working peo ple," ho said, "and In twenty-four hours every starving man would be fed." The 'police force, which he. characterized as "a pimple on the body politic," he would send 'to re lieve tho poor, after it had first thrown the mayor and other chief of ficials Into prison. The fire depart ment would be made over Into a sani tary corps to save thousands of lives by cleaning up tha city. And finally tho people, he said would have a per fect right to rjeg, borrow or steal, but not to starve, since to starve Is to commit suicide and that Is against the law. To thoughtfully consider the unruly situation that Mr. Haywood would bring to pass, must suggest to any reasonable-minded man the futility of 11. Not until mankind has been made over with now Impulses would such a gov ernment be possible even for a day. When men kill now with the sure cer tainty of the gallows staring them In tha face, what would they do when there was no police force, not to speak of standing army or the na tional guard, If his proposition la not anarchy, It Is Indistinguishable from It. Even granting that the workers could peaceably and orderly pproprlate for their own whatever they needed to appease their wants, is It to be supposed that, when they had used up the material at hand, they would be In any better position to fight the fight of life? In. the mean time our cities would be burning to tha ground with no organized fire de partments to light the blades, for he elements would not turn socialise, even were It possible for man to do so. In the words of the season-old popular song, the gentleman's logic Is going "Around and 'round and round." One hundred and fifty thousand people assembled In Milan Sunday to watch a French aeroplanlst fly. This afternoon hot a few 'thousand loyal sons of Ell will march out to Yale field with the full expectation that the team that wears the 'blue will not "go up In the air." There's a reason. John G. Woolley, candidate for president on the prohibition ticket, says the people are aroused on the liquor traffic question. Guess ho would have thought so, had he been down at Savin Rock not many min utes after the bungling state police g6t busy there. The reunion cln.sFes come back as burglars, prison-striped criminals, po licemen and Just plain tramps .from year to year. Why la It they never adopt the garb of the teetotaler? That would be the greatest Joke of all. A day of rest at Oyster Bay for the president? What' the matter? Could n't he possibly find a correspondent to Interview him, a platform to write, a bear, elephant or mountain lion to shoot, or think, of an adventure story or a speech to work on? The Hartford Courant suggests that If we cannot have a quiet Fourth of July everywhere, we can have quiet at least around the hospitals. That Is not too much to ask of any small boy. A word to the wise. Shooting at the balloonlsts prom ises to become an absorbing pastime with the farmers. It Is easier to get a good aim at them than at the outo mobltes that whizz by. Brother Taft of the trleennlal class wouldn't make a very gnod cox swain now would he? Perhaps It Is better, after all, that he will see the boat race from the observation train. Really avoldupols is not entirely a drawback. It gets Taft and Sherman so much notoriety among the editor ial squlb-wrlters that the best of press agencies could not. Ol R t'ONTEMPOHARIES.

Hon. luke Wright, once a captain In the Confederate army, hns been made secretary of war, and again President Roosevelt hns exhibited his faculty for doing the hnppy and useful thing at one stroke. Mr. Wright belongs to the school of men who do things the school represented by Roosevelt, Tnft and Root. Ills work during the yellow fever days at Memphis Is still a gru clmis memory In the south, governing of the Philippines made him the friend of those peoples and our troops occu pying the Islands. His knowledge nf conditions In all our Island possessions a knowledge Indispensable In his new appointment Is secobrt only to Mr Taft's. His administrative ability has been so severely tested and under such diverse conditions that there remnlned In the president's mind not a dnwht nf Mr. Wright's ability to undertake the admlnlstrntlnn of the wnr department, The appointment Is thrice happy In that It gives duo recognition to a valuable public, mnn, presents a graceful compli ment to the south, and gives the de partment of war a head ns wis and a hand as steady as those possessed by Secretary Taft.
