Those wfto expected Judge Robert son to run to cover na ft director 1n several publlo service corporations be cauao of Mr. IJUoy'a approval of a proposed puhllo utilities commission, with sufficient power to niakn thn cor porations feel tho restraint of stato needa, have already been disappoint ed. In an intervlow with the New Haven correspondent of tho Now Vork Herald ho makes It clear to every fulr minded man that If elected gov ernor he will servo tho people first, flast and all the tlino to the best of Ala ability. Judge Robertson's words are these: "As far na my Influence as a director goes I will not allow those corpora tions or any other that I may be con nected with to ask of the legislature end tho state anything that anybody would Justly criticise. Hut If they (should ask anything that could Justly be "criticised I should take a stand against that request, and that corpo ration so asking would have no stronger opponent In either branch of the general assembly than A. Heaton Robertson. I will not permit any In dividual nor any collection of men to dictate td me. But I believe that tho Interest of the corporations and of the citizens of the state of Conneotl- rut an identical. There ought to ha no antagonism tiotwoen the citizens and the great corporations which j Iiave done bo much to build up the stato and that furnish work and em ployment directly and Indirectly to so many of our crttlaena.

The Associated Press gave currency Monday evening to a dispatch telling I of the receipt by Mr, Lllley of a letter frotn President Roosevelt In which the; request was made for a copy of a cer- j tain speech made by the Waterbury j congressman at the session of congress last spring. The dispatch concludes as follows: "Tho President adds to tho let ter his hearty wish for Mr. Lllloy's suo ocsf)." The Waterbury Republican printa tho news but concludes Its para graph with these words: "Tho Presi dent cWes the loiter by cordially wish ing Mr. Lllley success In his cam paign." Like moat of tho statements emanat ing from Lllley headquarters this one Is decidedly confusing and misleading. Nor can the situation he cleared until tho exact text of the letter Is seen and studied. If President Roosevelt ha cordially offe,-d Mr. Lllley his best wishes In thn present campaign thero can bo no objection whatever to the fact bring made known through tho publication of tho letter Itself. It is us ual with the President when be holds to opinions of this character to say so openly. He would scorn to express his hearty Interest In a friend's campaign and then murk the letter "confldentl,il." If Mr. Lllley, on the other hand, haw actually received such a letter express ly approving his candidacy and wishing It well and declines to give Its text full publication, the election has come upon a demonstration of personal modesty and consideration unusual In a cam paign. If he has such a letter from the President, which wns Intended for Ills personal delectation and for pri vate circulation, that fact ought also to be known. It would In a sense Jus tify tho obsnuro and mtaleadlng dis patch sont out by the Associated Press and the' news printed in the Republi can. We regret to make such an Insinua tion but we hesitate to accept the story of President Roosevelt's endorsement In the absence of the full text of the letter. It f wot our fault that we can- not accept the endorsement as penu'nn. It is Mr. Mlley's fault. There have been so many occasions in his career when hesitation of speech took tho place of candor, when Inaccuracies of statement undor oath made for the rejection of his testimony by scrupulous people and when original statements end nsser tlnna had later to be corrected and modified that thoughtful people find themselves compolled to ask In each new inetanoe for the evidence to rnln- i rest under the suspicion of having pur posely taken advantage of a conven tional act of courtesy to give the vot ers of Connecticut thn Impression that President Roosevelt believes In him and that he deserves their support at th0 polls u. t.iii.. .h.iA ..-i ,.n ..... , nowuoi innn poooo hi oiu-B the full text of tho Roosevelt letter Tho columns of The Journal-Courier are open to Its complete publication. THH! 1VFIW STAMPS. The federal government has made tho announcement that there will be published In the near future nn entire ly now series of postage stamps of all 6'enomlnnttons less than one dollar, That there Is great necessity for such nn issue of new stamps la far from apparent. Our pres ent stamps, which have now been In uae for some years, havo arv ed their purpose well. They have wor thy elements of design which, on the whole have commanded them, Tho public has come to lie perfectly fa miliar vit'h them, They tire known to day an the typical postage stamps of the United 6tat.es the world over.
