Lilley for the republican nomination for governor we turn with gratitude to the following from the editorial columns of the Hartford Times apro pos of the attitude of The Jjurnal Courler towards the Impudent repub lican machine: "Yet probably, like some ethers, It (The Journal-Courier) Is ready to Incur disfavor In a good i cause, and cares more for the welfare fit the state of Connecticut than for that of any single group In the popu lation." A better statement of our position could not have been made and we pass It on as If penned In these offices. In violent contrast with this state ment of fact la the assertion of the Waterbury American: "We are prob ably as much In favor of reform as the Times Is, but we 'have great con tempt for hypocritical pretence of su perior virtue, which takes the form of an unwarranted attack on a man who ' has earned the right to be a candl- Vdate for governor, and, if elected, will make as good a one hs we usually have." We will not discuss the phase of the assertion which talks of hypo critical pretence and superior virtue, at the. best very vulgar language used to ho 'effect. We are more interested . In the assertion that Mr. Lilley has earned the right to be a candidate for governor of the state of Connecticut. How has he earned It? Up to the time of his being elected to the general as sembly, Mr. Lilley was engaged in business. As a member of the state house of representatives he gave the service the average member gives and was conspicuous for neither great tal ents nor Inferior talents. The one thing he might have done to gain dis tinction, I. e., urged the enforcement of the law of the United States with regard to the redlstrlctltig of the state Into five congressional districts, he deliber ately abandoned at the dictation of the party machine, In the very goner fll assembly which he- adorned with his presence there were twenty-five men in his party, to use a small num ber, who are hla peers in experience and Judgment. As a member of the national house, of representatives his service has been the least Impressive of all five Connec ticut members except in the one in stance where he earned the reproba tion of his colleagua.j triiejvcry na ture of hla office precluded him from serving his constituents except ns the generosity of the four district mem bers permitted. Ills political constit uency has been the concrete evasion ofthe law of the country and his pres ence in the house of representatives . has been tolerated only because ho has been In political sympathy with the majority. Had he been a demo crat the slightest reference to tho law lessness of Connecticut would prob ably have led to his removal until uch times as the Mate obeyed the law. In all other respects his service, In its impressive, features, has been limited to his absurd and ungenerous iubmarlne enterprise; absurd in that lie never had any facts In his posses- ' Slon to prove his charges and ungen erous In that he got his chance to be heard in ah Investigation, which ho hoped to boas as Jrldge and prosecut ing officer, .by defaming three of hla fellow citizens, two of them personal friends. A more discredited member of congress Is not on the rolls of that body to-day, a queer title .to one's right to a nomination foj' the high of fice of governor of Connecticut. It yet remains to he proved that Connec ticut Is ready to accept Irresponsible defamation of. respectable citizens ax a right to its choicest honors. Tho only right Mr. Lilley has earn ed to be considered In connection with tho governorship springs from hla lib eral campaign contributions, his lav ish hospitality and hUs lively comrade ship. And yet theoo are such feeble cla'ms upon the'o.TIco to which ho a.v ptres that If the machine should to morrow withdraw Its support from his candidacy It would collapse like a tired and overworked soap bubble, i Ills strength Is machine made, Is of j machine origin and depends for IU nourishment upon machine determin ation, Mr. Lilley has not been attack ed, He has been treated with consid eration for a man who proposes to seize with the arts of the professional politician, supported by the possible fear of Mr. Taft's defeat, an office for which he Is notoriously unfitted. ALEXANDEn TIlOl'P, A picturesque, enthusiastic and dom inant man was withdrawn from the stirring life of Connecticut when Alex ander Troup dropped suddenly Into the silence of the unknown yesterdoy, It was logical that he should have dial as he did die with all of his emotional energies active and alert. It Is too ear ly to carefully and Justly estimate the conspicuous phases of his character; too early to Intelligently and accurate ly measure the extent of his influence as a citizen, editor and public servant. He was a rough and ready worker in the world, a man who met tho prob lems of life face to face, sometimes un derestimating their significance and sometimes exaggerating them, but al ways meeting them with the courage of his own convictions convictions which at momenta Irritated perhaps, but whlch'later compelled one to admit that after all one's own life Is the only life worth living. We In the business of Tnaklng newspapers and defending the faith which is ours referred to him affectionately as "Uncle Aleck." It Is pleasant at this late hour, as we write, to be able to say: "Good night, Uncle Aleck. Sleep well." OUR FOREIGN BORN CITIZENS. At the summer outing of the Con necticut Sons of the American Invo lution, Mayor Hooker of Hartford made an excellent speech upon tho subject of the most effective way of enthusing our foreign born resident! and citizens with the spirit of Ameri can Institutions. It Is a subject which receives careful consideration wher ever thoughtful 'men gather, but It ha not yet reached a ttage of rafcty Where political leaders feel that they can discuss it openly. Mr. Hooker's Impromptu speech was all the more entertaining and convincing on that account. Mayor Hooker reminded the sons that while they might possess more of the Intellectual fire, most of tho material wealth of the country and virtually all of the Invested capital on election their candidates for public office have to hustle for the support of the foreign born voters. He re minded them that if It became neces sary to appeal to the community to enlist in the army to resist an Invad ing foe, the response would -!ome more freely from those who are too little considered and less freely front the sons themselves. Because this Is o he rightly considers it essential to let them, with less interference and op position, Introduce Into the life of Xew England more of that freedom of action, which conflicts with local theology. He would liberalize Sunday for one thing, confident that the re sult would not only be moral but would lead to a better understanding on the part of the people he wishes to reach of our country and Its needs, the evolution of a conception of American life which would necessarily add to Its stability. There Is no question whatever but that Mayor Hooker has said out loud what has long been In the thoughts of tho great majority. Nowhere Is there a demand for a dcmorallz-d Sunday. It would not be tolerated by the residents of the state, who now feel themselves aggrieved because they are kept from enjoyments which do not appear to be denied the more fortunate who havo private grounds upon which to play on Sunday, There has too long been a disposition on the part of the legislating part of Connec ticut to rely upon tho strong arm of tho government to keep In restraint a desire which has nothing harmful In It, but which has had attributed to It an evil character because of Its secular sensation. Even to-day that feeling exists to an extent that has made It necessary for large communi ties like New Haven to suspend the laws and leave them suspended, so long as the personal liberty allowed Is not abused, though suspension of the law for any purpose can scarcely be said to have wisdom In It. The problem to which Mayor Hook er referred Is, however, a praetioal one and has to do with the assimila tion of these people who arc nearly If not quite In tho majority on tho voting lists. Thoy will not be. pru dently and wisely assimilated, if there Is mixed In with our treatment of them, under the. old laws, a sense of Injustice an It might be shown In (in Indifference to their outlook upon life an 1 their training under other sides. It might be a good thing if they could be swung into line for tho old New England notions of fororcllnatlon, predestination and election but that obviously must follow, not precede the more pressing work. IlonsELENS FiitE APi'Aii ATI'S. f Tho universal adoption of various automnhlle devices In tho different city i department. Is now only a question of i tlme. Tho purchase of an automobile for Chief rancher to hurry to fires ,ln Is a beginning. Tho request for j un automobile police ambulance has ' followed It closely. Now Chief Fancher has relumed from a meeting i of flro chiefs at Columbus Imbued with an enthusiasm for tho universal adop. tlon of horseless apparatus In his de partment at tho flrKt opportunity. Ho concurs with cx-Chlef Hendricks who has been known for hoiho time to fav or such a move. The day of the beau tiful and big fire horses Is limited In New Haven as In every city, Intelli gent, gentle, powerful, lovable and he roic as nearly all of these horses have a reputation for being, they and their offspring will soon bo where dunging bells, wild dashes through tho night, and gusts of smoke und flame liro not of such common occurrence. The great argument In favor of tho newer style of lire apparatus Is of course their speed. Speed Is the first essential in every detail of a fire de partment. A few seconds gained In getting out of the fire house, and a minute or two shaved off of tne running-time to a fire are matters of the gieatest importance. A building, a block of buildings, a whole section of a city may be doomed or saved In that short" length of time. There is no one who realizes more than tho firemen that prompt arrival at a fire Is more than half the battle. Quick and Intelli gent as the best of the fire horses may be when the bells ring, they are cer tain to delay the men In starting to seme extent. Ingenious as may ba the way In which the harness is arranged so as to facilitate matters, there are sure to be waits. Whereas, with the automobile apparatus, It Is a Blmplo matter of turning a crank or a, lever or two and the men are on their way as soon as they have tumbled Into their clothes and down the brass poles. Once on the street the superiority pf tho horseless apparatus Is very evid ent, especially on long runs, when horse-flesh feels the strain. Steel knows no fatigue. In Bridgeport and Hart ford where they have the new automo bile chemical wagons, there has been a grave fear that some day there would be a serious loss of life on the streets duo to the high speed. Chief Fancher report that at the convention the- au tomobile trucks, chemicals, engines and hose wagons all worked to perfec tion. A seven-ton truck attained a speed of 60 miles an hour on a three mile run. arriving in time to raise a 75-foot aerial ladder by automatic means in a little over seventeen min utes. , There was a day when the adoption of horseless fire apparatus was wisely deemed Inadvisable. It cannot be said with all Justice that the two "Jumbo" horseless engines that Hart ford now has have proved very satis factory. Hut there have been many Im provements In automoblie construction since their adoption and the situation is vastly different today. Uur (Ire de pertinent deserves and requires the bst of apparatus to do Itself Justice and It may be believed the cnange to the new style apparatus will bo made In the near future. The (Ire commis sioners are even now asking money for the purchase of a gasolene engine and an automobile combination chemical and hose wagon. Mil. PALMER'S APPEAL, We print In the new s columns" or Tho Journal-Courier this morning a copy of the letter sent to each delegate to tho republican state convention by George S. Falmer of New London. It vigorous ly supplements his open letter to the republican voters of the state, which was printed August 8 In this news paper. The original letter should have been enough to prove the sincerity of Mr, Palmer's motive In abandoning his quiet life for one of controversy and misrepresentation. A strict party man, who was content to servo his political organization without hope or desire of reward, he was moved by the purest of motives to save Ills party from the discredit of the Lilley movement. In this second letter he again shows to thoughtful men that he is moved by only a high love of state ami pride in Its history. To question for a moment the motives of such a man, no matter what one may think of his Judgment, Is to disclose a partisanship too severe In texture to trust its personification with political power. It Is Interesting to observe that Mr. I'almer stat es that his measurement 'of Mr. Lilley has been made up from a study of the congressional Investigation and from "fuels obtained from emi nent republican leaders both In Con necticut and out. of It." More than this, letters have been pouring Into New London from all over the state, written by business men, large employers ot labor, "tin? men of character who vote but shrink from publicity, the very men upon whom t lie republican party counts"; men who "will turn their thinking Into action," unless the dis credit of the Lilley nomination Is av rt ed. Mr. Palmer asks the d legates what advantage Is to be gained by tho nom ination of a man for whom apologies must at once be niado, and why tho advantago of another term of Gover nor Woodruff should be deliberately ig nored? It may be that even now the dignified appeal of Mr. Polmrr to the reoimn of tho delegates will not avail and . thrjt j tho assurance of his friend will be JuBtlflptl; "Those doIi-gate go to the convention to do the ono thing that W have been told to do. 'they io jusi that thing and they will do nothing '''." but It will nevertheless be found 'u serious thing to have turned away from Ihe councils of the parly men of tho calibre of Mr. I'almer and his ad vising friends. In a former generation that was not thought to be the most effective way of building up a political party. TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT. The full meunlng of the German kaiser's latest political move, In an nouncing that tho situation in Morocco demands the Immediate rt cognition of Mulal Halld, the usurper, as sultun of tho little country of the African north coast, cannot easily be fully realised In this country. Tho chief reason for this Is that United States Interests, com mereliil or political, In 'Morocco ure very limited. Theio are few of our countrymen there to be concerned In tho future of the Moorish nation, Hut to the European powers the naturul position of Morocco, commanding as It does one of the gateways to tho Medi terranean, It Is naturally a grave an nouncement. It Is because of the Algeclras act that France Is today so olarmed over the kaiser's announced Intention of recog nizing the man who has usurped the place of Abd-el-AzIz in Morocco. Stat ed briefly, that net provides that no man shall be recognized by the Euro pean powers as sultan of Morocco un til he has fully subscribed to sueh guar antees as those powers shall between them decide upon. The kaiser Is known to be an open friend of Mulal Halld, the usurping brother. Indeed at Tan gier he is 1 inked upon as Hand's only European friend. The present under standing In Furls Is thnt Germany pro poses to recognize him before he has subscribed to the many agreements, similar to tlu.se of his brother, now be ing formulated. With characteristic excitement. Frenchmen are pointing out how all the careful and deliberate work of the Algeclras conference will go for naught, if Germany perBlsts in this announced decision, and how re lations will revert to trio stutus quo ante. The French press Is expressing Itself as more than ever convinced that the kaiser Intends to take advantage of the present Morocco situation, having now learned that the German consul at Tangier, Dr. Vessel, 1ms left for Fez, ostensibly to obtain the c:ir of Hatld. And so the Incident Is mugnlllcd It Is recalled how npar Germany and France came to an open breech three years ago because of disagreements as to (Morocco. The kaiser's announce inent keeps on creating Its merry lltth rumpus till there are rumors of hos tilltles and even of war between Ger many and France, as the hot-headed Frenchmen force their conclusions. Those who know the diplomatic ca pacities of the German kaiser will be Inclined to tblhk his pf-sltlon has eith er been Imperfectly or incompletely Mated or that he hns been misunder stood. Especially would that seem to be the case In view of his recent peace talk at Strosburg within the week. At that time he expressed himself as de lighted with the present wholly eoe tul aspect of European affairs and be cause of It all the world rejoiced with him. Ho said European peace now rests n "too solid a foundation to be easily upset by the excitements and calumnies provoked by envious and evil-disposed Individuals." It Is uube llevablo that the kaiser would be so two-sided ns to talk peaee one day and within a week tuku an action In regard to Morocco sure to bring about, feelings that are anything but peuceful and possibly open hostilities. It Is not difficult to understand that the kaiser had In mind the great neces sity there Is of quelling the present Moroccoan troubles. He saw that the recognition of Hafld Is certain some time, since his brother, the former sul tan, Abd-el-Azlz, Is now a nonentity, and he has but taken steps that seem ed to him best toward hastening that universal recognition of him by tho powers. There can be no doubt thai, the little trouble will bl.iw over, but It only goes to show how Europe may be walking on swords' points, even when thanking heaven for every bless ing of a world peace.
