As Mr. LtUey has not yet been nom inated by the dominant party, It la a Mt premature to bring up for more serious discussion the machine of which It la proposed to make him the beneficiary, but since It haa been re ferred to by the Springfield Republi can and discussed by the Hartford Coorant it can no longer be Ignored. It Mr. Liltey Is nominated It wilt, of coarse, h-s to be discussed In all of It, phase, but a word or two now iruty help to enlighten the view of those, who love to dwell In darkness. It ts ths belief of the Republican that If 4be direct primary nominating principle were adopted In Connecticut It wouM "TocMenraIry drop the present (repnMfesm) machine oligarchy Into a pit so dej that ft would never reach the surface main." To this f he Cour ant replies that It favors the adoption of the direct nominating principle, because It would sweep aside the "cat tle," who remain active In politics for what there is in it for them. It also favors the direct primary, because It believes it would increase the Interest of "the every day cltlse.n" in politics. It then goes on to say accurately and truly: "But we do not believe that a direct primary would deprive earnest and honest porrtfwil workers of their Influence. They would turn their ef forts to the polls of the primary In stead of to the preparation for the caucus. While now they go about urging their friends to go to the cau cus, they would then be urging them to go to the polls. A candidate at the primaries succeeds through the eforts of himself and his friends as truly as the candidate does. There has to be an organization If there Is a part." The difference between the kind of political machinery these gifted news papers tars considering and the kind which Is ready to the hand of the par ty' engineers in Connecticut to-day Is that under the-dlreet primary law the nominee of the republican party this year would be Oowmor Woodruff and not George I Dlley. The machine Would not have been able to control the popular vote as It haa easily con trolley the registered or canned vote. So much for that end of the con troversy. The real point to be oon sidered is the need of political ma chinery to do the work of political parties. As the Courant says there must be organisation If thorc are to be parties, but there need not be the Kind 'Of ,organlJiatlon which dominates In the .state of Connecticut and the law should forbid it, If not directly then lndftrectly. Michael Kenealy, the chairman of the republican state com mittee Is credited with this sound and reputable observation: "The party organization eilsts In order to ele;t the ticket which has been nominated, not to nominate the ticket to be offer ed the people." The exactly opposite View Is held by the men In Connecti cut to-day, who Insist upon choosing the ticket before the convention meets. They are not leaders In the Kenealy sense; they are ratlfiers of the edict ot the machine. But this' vmld not be so serious a thing If th efforts of the machine, stopped there. The voters could soon . take It out of them at the polls, aa they threaten to do this fall. The evil of the Connecticut republican ma chine Is found In Its ramified power, built up since misfortune and error overtook the democrats, and effective resistance was stilted. The machine seeks to nominate In order that It may control the executive department of the government when the temptation to veto a legislative act comes. The machine seeks to reach out Into the various townships of the -nate, and there control local machine opinion in ways which gratify local needs and moet local demands. In ordar to moro effectively control the houses of legis lation when big hens get to setting. The machine seeks to control the offic ial output, which comes by appolnt- ment, In order thst It -members may. occupy the mors remunerative offUir-s, and 'Its friends and supporter thu positions of compliment ami honor.

The refusal of thousands of repub llcana and democrats to register un der the preposterous enrollment law, when properly Interpreted, mean that at last all palaver uhout the need of organization, etc., la understood. The principle of organization la con ceded; the abuse of that principle as It la abused In the state of Connecticut is drawing to a close. The plain votr la at last onto the game, us the ex pression Is. Those who are still In darkness will have an opportunity to learn as the Impudent campaign ar ranged 'goes on. A new chapter !n the political history of Connecticut will begin to be written In November unless all signs fall. TIIE VEIIWOXT KIECnOJI. The two national organizations hav ing attached in advance a significance to the election this year In the state of Vermont and the algnlflcance attached hy them having been accepted by the public at large, the result may be snld to have an artificial meaning for the political mathematicians. We are still of the judgment that had less atten tion been riveted on the Green Moun tain state, the local contest would have come and departed without lively com ment. The republicans were locking for an Increased vote which they could howl about, and the democrats were looking for a decreased vote which would enable them to point with certainty to the downfall of their historic adversaries. It Is difficult to see how either party can take much comfort out of the con duct of the 'voters of Vermont this month. There was no kicking of lively heels In either party. The republicans sent some of their big guns, Including Representative Hill nf this state, to pass out the party gospel, but the dem ocrats, with the exception of Mr. Wil liams of Massachusetts and Mr. Troup of this state, fought thetr own battle with local ammunition. The result ap pears to be a slight reduction over four and eight years ago, but if ap plied to the various slates of the union would scarcely show that the republi can party Is this year doomed to de feat. As compared with twelve years ago, when Mr. Bryan was the nomi nee of his party, the drop Is sensa tional and Justifies one, of course, In the conclusion that many of the old fashioned democrats of that period have recovered from their fright and have settled back Into the family chair for an Indefinite, time. If there is anything suggestive at all about the Vermont election, It would appear to be In the nature of a warn ing to the dominant party, that this year scares at the lust moment, unless formulated by Mr. Bryan himself In a moment ot unexpected dlllrlum, will cut but little figure In the result. It wolud also suggest that there Is a large amount of work to be done to enliven the electorate, which at Ihe present moment is taking Its political medicine without much Interest In its effect. This may all mean, a foregone conclusion, and there Is something to be said on that question, but foregone conclusions are conditions of mind rarely found at political headquarters. The suggestion is made that if the republican are dis appointed week after next'ln the reve lation of party strength in Maine there may be something doing. That might be, the excuse for the reappearance ot Mr, Roosevelt, and then tilings would be moving at a bully pace, OVR AT9RIAL t'nmVKIIS. Those who watched the heroic and timely rescue of Lineman Jackson on Center street Tuesday afternoon by his fellow workmen, and the members of the lire department, can have nothing but praise for all concerned. This was an example of the many kinds of work the firemen are called upon to do oc casionally, which has nothing to do with flrea and which they may be de pended upon to perform with charac teristic dispatch and precision. The unfortunate lineman owes his life to day to the fact that his rescuers did not hesitate to endajiger their own lives to save his. His own heroism, in retaining his seK-po.sspsslon suflicient- ly to lower himself rung by rung clown the aerial ladder, in spite of his many extremely painful electrical burns ,was nothing less than spectacular. That there are not many more such accidents as this may tie considered fortunate. The " remedy may be thought to lie In greater caution on the part of these men. who have elected this dangerous calling as their means of earning a living. But that remedy will never meet the situation. The danger of handling electric wlrea of high potentiality Is dangerous enough under the most favorable cir cumstances, but it is far more so when the artisan has to cllnvb fifty or seventy-live feet in the air up a slim pole, whrr hi foothold l none ton secure at best, to get to his work. Such an j occurrenee aa that of Tuesday after noon on Center street Is another forceful argument In favor of placing every electric wire In the city under ground, be It lined for lighting, tele graph, telephone or trolley purposes. When wire are put In suitable con duit, just below the street pavement, there In little chance that any work man will receive a shock, The men then work on the wires In the well- known, brlcked-up, wells kl the street corners and, If anything goes wrong with them, they may be easily reach ed. With the underground wires, be sides, there Is much less changing of the wire then when they are atrunajiend that we may have perfect justice on the street poles. For many differ-; to all men, poor or rich, In this land of ent reasons street poles or overhead wires have to he changed, A change In the situation of the pole on which Lineman Jackson was working was necessitated by the repavlng of Center street now going on. If only looked at from the aesthet ic standpoint, there la no reason why any corporation should permanently Impose upon the city to the extent of disfiguring Its streets with their wires. If they are given permission by the city to siring wires they certainly can and should be made to put the latter out of sight at the earliest possible moment. If looked at from the standpoint of safety, the necessity for such action becomes only the greater. Not only are workmen's lives endan gered, but the lives of pedestrians, and the safety of traffic snd adjoining property Is endangered In various ways. In New York they have not pandered words with the corporations that need to use wires. There over head wires have been summarily cut and, as a result, the concerns have been unable tn give any service till they went to the trouble and expense of putting the wires underground. New Haven has forced some wires un derground on some streets. The time has come to compel that on all streets with all wlrea and It should not be necessary to have more accidents like that of Tuesday to make that necessity apparent. vewy Arrnor.niATi". We have read with very great Inter est on account of the convention of the republicans of the twenty-ninth sena torial district to elect delegates at large to the approaching republican state convention. All of the town dele gates were present but one and his sub stitute was made chairman of the con vention, which gives new point and substance to the well known under standing that the first Khali be last and the last first. Resolutions were i adopted Affirming Ihe faith of the con vention In the candidacy of Judge Taft and Congresman Lllley after which the town delegates with a few friends ad journed to the Hooker house, In Wllll mantlc, where they sat down to "din ner" as the guests of State fienatot Charles A. Gates. "Before partaking of the excellent spread," writes the fnlth ful chronicler, "Rev. O. W. Clark ot Brooklyn offered prayer." That was certainly a very pnper thing to do In an' assembly which linked the names of Taft and Lllley together. It must have been a prayer for forgiveness. riiivii.r.fiF.s (! run nu n. As a rule it Is needless to comment upon such canes hh Hint of Harry Thaw, slresily too notorious, or the more recent legal entanglements of the Mains brothers. The public has ltn clear-cut opinions of such things. All eerlous-mlnded citizens will he found disposed to the opinion that It would he far better did the pistol of the would-be murderer of this class ex plnde, when discharged, with the result that the world were rid of all concern ed at the same time. Hut since that Is impossible, If there must be long and lengthy trials with trumped-up do - fences of Insanity and appeals to the "unwritten law," then the necessity of Just such legal reforms as Mr. Taft Is now urging and promising his best ef forts, if elected, to bring about, is again made apparent. It is quite as necessary that wealth be as powerless to Interfere with the strict enforcement of Justice In crim inal proceedings as In civil proceed ings, It is quite necessary that the wealth of the Thaw or any family shall 1 n"1 be able to save one of Its members trom the punishment a penniless man would have to fare, as that the wealth of the Standard Oil company shall not save It, If guilty under the civil law, from paying fines an ordinary business man, without much capital, would have to pay. But not only that. The moneyed criminal, like Thaw, should not be entitled to more than the poor est man in court, Jail or asylum. There Is no excuse for Thaw being accorded uch privileges In the Duchess coimtv Jail as are described In the renurt ot the New York state commission on prisons. In that report It is fald that Thaw has been allowed the freedom of a whole corridor in the Jail-house, when there have been many cases right about him where two men have been occu pying two cells. Harry Thaw has been adjudged to be criminally Insane. He chose to escape the electric chair by presenting a de fense of Insanity. Now that defenso has been accepted, he is quite as truly a prisoner as any man In Sing Sing until he haa recovered mentally and is no longer dnnuorous to society. In the meiintlme, it is a privilege to which he Us not entitled snd one which his lly wealth alone brings him when ha Is allowed to take outinga that others similarly sentenced cannot take, to re ceive food that pthers similarly sen tenced do not get, or to be subjected to any discipline to which others simi larly sentenced are not subjected, Without a doubt much reform Is needed In our court litigations. Mr, Taft may ha depended upon to bring that change about, If It can bn done. But the Influence of the. money of the Jrleh man does not stop here. Even when found guilty, money muy make his lot In prison or asylum far more bearable for him. There Is need ot a further reform In this direction to the the free, Oh, but there are some papers that are "catching It!' as the result of their antl-Lllley views. Our esteemed con temporaries tell us the Providence Journal and the Springfield Repub lican "Live Just far enough away to be ou of touch with Connecticut sen timent and not far enough away to get a good bird's-eye view." As for the New York Bun, which holds to the same belief, It Is a 'professional old "knocker" anyway. We, who are spoken of familiarly as "The J-C." are part all reason and explanation. However, It is not unpleasant to be classed In such undeniably worthy Journalistic company. By Interfering In the recent West Point har.lng rases, President Roose velt naturally placed Colonel Reott, of the military academy, and Pecretary Wright In a peculiar light, and, to a certain degree, undermined their dis cipline and dignity. Over Acting Sec retary of the Navy Newberry's head he has now ordered the hattleshlp Mis sissippi to Boston for the Spunlsh War Veterans' convention. Judge Mathewson Is to be con gratulated and commended upon the splendid work he has done with the Boys' Good Government cluh. There Is no work to be compared In import ance with making good citizens of boys, whether slightly frisky or staid. The twigs will always bear watching, sometimes when It gets to be a. tree. We congratulate the new members of the board ot education. Theirs will not be a task lacking In responsibility. In their hands will rest In part the education and the moulding of the fu ture citizens and fathers of New Ha ven. We sincerely hope they' will prove equal to their new trust. The charter under which the trol ley road to Woodbury was built was secured sixteen years ago nnd was re newed from time to time, It would be interesting to know how many more renewable charters there are out to be utilized, bought or sold. oin covrrcMrnnABim.
