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
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,

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.
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,
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
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.

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
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
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

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,

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

prove equal to their new trust.
