Tuesday, November IT, 11)08. sew iiavkvs .ntaiimvAi ts. It Is plainly evident that something must lie done In this city to curl) the automobile nnd the automoblllst. The juggernaut of India, before which the Hindu mothers were, wont to throw their babes to be crushed to death, has, had a record scarcely morn grewsomo than these Juggernauts of New Ha ven. With the India monster there has been nt least some degree of per sonal Initiative on the part of f.ie vic tim's mother, nd there has been come foreknowledge of approaching catas trophe; but the Now Haven automo bile monsters have beep In the habit of swooping down upon their victim without oa much as a note of warning and at lightning speed. Their victims, of whom thnre were lat week ns many m three In forty-eight hours, havs been not babe In arms, but ef fectual men of work In the communi ty. The Hartford Courant was sponser for the suggestion made last week that a black cross be emblazoned on every automobile for every death It tins caused. The suggestion Is not without Its merits, but wo believe we should rather see the black cross on the men who have been responsible for these accidents, Autoj, come and autos go, but a life once taken can never be brought back. These affairs cannot be made of too serious Import. It Is very clear that the time Is fast approaching when sterner ways of regulating these machine, which are veritable-locomotives, runlilng wild In our streets, must be had. In the past, perhaps, we have been spasmodically severe with certain antolsts who have been detected exceeding a c rtnln fixed speed-limit. We have laid stress rath er upon the speed Itself than upon the danger to. life, II m H. and property, which must always accompany the speed; and, when lives have been tak en, there bss been public compassion and easy coroner's verdicts for the guilty drivers. In Paris the custom has long been to alliw the antolsts to proceed at practically whatever speed they may choose, but no occasion Is lost by the authorities to make It perfectly clear that whenever these is a. killing or an Injury, the. punishment must follow quickly, firmly and relentlessly. A. similar method of dealing with these engines of destruction might well he adopted 'here. I,et not New Haven become known far and wide as a lo cality where the officers of the law are ever on the lookout for those who ex ceed the speed the law lays down, but let New Haven be known far and wide as the locality where to a niHn drivers who run amuck are promptly dealt with. There Is no reason why the an toist who kills a man should receive more courtesies than any other hom icide who commits an unpremeditat ed murder. The false Impression which has gone abroad among auto moblllsts, that, If they toot their horn, all responsibility for accidents which may follow is wiped out, must, bo shown to be without foundation. There Is no reason why the "mere" psdestrlan should he compelled to take his life In his hands and run at street crossings to avoid death under the wheels of these Juggernauts. During the summer Just passed cer tain of the, automobile orfcanliiatl.ins sent out warnings to their Connecticut members to the effect that, if they did not run their curs more sandy and de crease the number of accidents, strict er auto laws would be passed by the next legislature. That warning has not been heeded. If these killings do not stop sterner legislative menus must be 'had. .New laws should not be aimed, however, against, the speed, for autos can kill finite as effectually when traveling a I. the rate of ten miles an hour as at sixty. The Watorbiiry Republican suggest that, only a. few stiff prison sentences can cheek the evil. Certainly such sentences would have splendid results. New laws should be aimed at the accidents, It might be recommended thai a law he passed which would forbid anyone using an automobile again in Connecticut who has been found ai fault in an accident which resulted In death or serious In- Jury. It may hp believer tlint such n r law wniiM do the. trick. i As fur the killing which have Just ii) ken place, we hcllcvn wo have the concensus of opinion, of the on in id u ti 1 - ! t.v when we ( all upon tic coroner to j ho stonily Just In hi.s findings. Wo can agree with Professor i.mid when he says that our city highways arc not race tracks.. TlIF, Cl II A V F.I.F.t TION. Cuba is in the position now to assume her Independent self-government as guaranteed by this country as a result of the Spanish-American war, The general election has been held and the liberals by nn overwhelming majority have chosen General Gomez for the presidency, nnd on January 21, with the withdrawal of the troops of the United States, the government of In tervention will cease. The general order thnt prevailed throughout the island and the wide spread Interest shown by the people- In voting give evidence of the capacity for self-government on the part of the cit izens. Tho two parties, liberal and conservative, were nearly alike In their platforms, both declaring for the pre servation of the republic, equal rights for citizens, encouragement of agri culture and commerce, and friendly re lations with the United States. The test of capacity for self-government is to bo shown through the will ingness of the defeated party to ac quiesce In the situation and In the pur pose of the victorious party to conduct affairs In tho Interests of the whole people, without special regard to party. If this kind of spirit shall prevail the United States will have no need again to Intervene. The new government be gins under the brightest auspices, with the liberals holding the majority In the senate and house of representatives. The course of Cuba will now be watched with interest and nowhere more satisfactorily than In the Unit ed States, If she prospers In peace, and nowhere more regretfully, If disorder should manifest itself, tiovernor Ma goon has expressed his pleasure at the fair, orderly, and enthusiastic election which has taken place and Is especi ally hopeful for the future. TIIF. Fl. IX Tlllt l. t Ol.t.F.liF. A political Institution about which there Is more or less mystery to the average citizen Is the electoral college. On the second Monday of January the electors of the different states meet at their repectlve state capitals and cast their votes by secret ballot and a list of votes is made and certified to; then this Is forwarded sealed to the Presi dent of the United States senate and on the second Wednesday of Kcfcru ;ry the votes nre counted at a joint session of the semite and house of representa tives nnd the successful candidates declared. Theoretically the country Is not sup posed to know who has been elected president of the United States for knowledge of how the electors ol the respective states will vote cannot be presumed. Originally tin- 'ranters of the constitution had In mind the eholce of president and vice-president by the wisest men of the nation. Until lSa', no electoral votes were cast dlsilne- lively for president and vice-president. Kach elector voted by ballot for two persons. If h majority of all the votes were cast for nny person, he who re - celved the greatest number of voles became president, and he who i ived the next greatest number became vloe - president. lly this method h lart: numner of names may ne voied by th" electors. When Washington was elected for the second term, twelve names were voted by the electors. Then there was no defined party dif- ferences. Rut when John Adams ws,.n,.p iM.tWeen politics regarded s scl declared, elected there were two political j,,,,,.,. r,f povriiuieol ami parll.'nn poll parties developed, nnd thirteen, immes j i0s. It can not be assumed that one were voted by electors. Tntll 1S24-1S2S electors were chosen generally by the legislatures of the various states and not directly by the people, much us TTnlted States seniifors are, but the tondeny toward the elec tion of t'nlted States senators by direct vote Is becoming marked and il Is likely that the popular election of presidents will follow. The change from a legislative choice of electors to that by the people Is a step. The presidential election of IS24 was known as "the scrub race for the presidency," because there had conned to he any recognized parties. It was nut. of thls,ics period of personal contest the demo- cratlc party arose and the vigorous Andrew Jackson, nnd with It all came the change, democratic in elm meter, l the choice of electors hy vote of the people, although smith Carollnu con tinued to choose electors by state legis lature until ISfiS. At this lime, ISIM. national conventions had not been adopted. To-day presidential electors appear to have little choice. They are bound by the character of the ticket on which their names appear, Theord leu I ly they are free, bill are actually in the position of pledged deliignles to a nUilu convention, who go with their Instruc tions carefully stowed away in their pockets. H Is this formality of the eletcoral plan that lends .some people to wonder where the i'ohI adviuitngi! and value of the electoral college np- P'"' Tt. matters little how much 8 citizen may grow enthusiastic over his candidate for president, the name of bis choice does not appear op the bal lot. Il" do"s not vote for president except by proxy. There have been one Utile Civic Sermons -No. 11. The Way to Get Good City Government. There is no known automatic process for getting good city government. Like almost everything else in this world worth having, it comes as the result of the hard work of great numbers of people. Because Los Angeles has good citizens who are willing to give some attention to civic matters; because among those who do politics there are many who are sincerely desirous for good city government; because among office-holders there have always been some and of late years many who are faithful, industrious and well qualified, and also because the city has two or three newspapers that loyally place the public welfare above partisan interest or personal spite, Los Angeles Journal of Municipal Affairs, or two Instances when the choice of the popular vote did not receive elec tion. Such nn Instance was that of Samuel J. Tllden who received 2riO,Mr more votes tluiti Tlutherford 11. Hayes, who was declared president by the doctoral votes. Notwithstanding the fad that official electors are 'practically without func tion thi system is continued in formal fashion. Indeed the electors are little thought of when the popular returns arc tabulated. There s little Interest in what they may do. Till: I'll F. It'll F.ll AMI I'OMTICS. The entrance of clergymen In politi cal discussions has raised the ipies tlon: "llow far shall a preacher go in his utterances regarding political questions?" CI. no n are found as public advocates of tlie claims of all lie (parties. Some worked in the In terest of Mr. Hryan; others supported Mr. Taft; still others were bard on the trail of the lion. Joseph I,. Can non in his congressional district, while In the Socialist parly cause the nnm bei of clergymen politically Interested were more numerous. It Is to be admitted that there are limes when a preacher should speak wlili "no uncertain sound." lie has his Interests ns a leader In moral pro gress. Whenever great moral princi ples arc Involved the pulpit Is negli gent If It does not speak. Whenever a political question Is raised that Is vital ly related to a serious ethical conclu sion, there Is n natural Interest to know how the clergy lew the matter. The preacher can not be absolutely colorless morally, if lie Ihis an ambition to be a real preacher. Within a little oyer a half century certain great political questions I have hoe,, complicated ith , j cai i-sues. .. -.-, ,,-ar in - troduceil ; conflict hetw hi (edit- ical expediency pie struggling t a no oioi i o inci - I . .

A point of Interest In connection with the resignation of Victor II. Metcalfe as secretary of the navy and the appointment to this cabinet pos ition of Truman 11. Newberry, who has heretofore been the assistant sec retary, Is the fact that Mr. Metcalfe Is n member of the class of '7f in tho Yale law school and Mr. Newberry Is a member of the class of '8," In "She ft."

To the Kdltor of the Kick Column: It has been frequently remarked Unit for the extent of territory covered by West Haven the police protection Is considerably short of what Is needed It Is coming on the season when closer watchfulness will be the duty of the police. Of course the force Is much re- I dueeil from what It Is In the summer time, when the shore resorts are open. 1 In such an extensive territory Hie few policemen can not patrol the whole ! place, Xow, It has occurred to me that the bicycle might be used to advantage to augment In unlckness of movement a from place lo place the efficiency of the ofllcers.
