It has come to he pretty generally recognized throughout the statu nf Connecticut that there Is a field nf usefulness for special state commis sions, an distinguished from statu or local commissions which are Riven administrative power. The occasion al Investigations which special com missions nnde.rtake for the purpose of' aiding the legislature In Its task of enacting competent laws are Illumin ating In the highest degTeo. Within the past ten or fifteen years In partic ular commissions, devoted to different subjects, hava done splendid work for Connecticut and have In many In stances led to wise legislation. In many respects the commission appointed by the general assembly two years ago to Inquire Into publlo utilities legislation was charged with tho most Important task yet. given a body of that, character. It Is well to remember that It was grudgingly cre ated, and so little had the movement the sympthy of the legislative leaders that they declined to let Governor "Woodruff, who deserves the largest share of credit, for what has already been accomplished, name the com mlssloner. A good commission was nevertheless the outcome, and, while It was not originally accredited with an enthusiasm for the work assigned It, It later became convinced that some step should be takn to bring the public srvtc corporations of the state tinder stricter control. The Springfield Republican appears Im pressed by the work done by the com mission and says that If their recom mendations are adopted Connecticut "will have taken a long step forward In the control of publlo service mon opoly. Publlo regulation In Connecti cut Is now and long has been a great farce and the joke of all observers. This situation is now to be placed in the way of correction. Connecticut, is to Join In the general state and riatonal movement towards subjecting public service monopoly to a measure of partnership with the people who grant the valuable and exclusive priv ileges. And the penalty for failure In making this movement effective Is to be full publlo ownership of such nterpr1seB.;" It would be difficult to find a more convincing statement of the purpose of this proposed legislation here and elsewhere. The earlier hours of the movement found the public service corporations approving the suggestion that the object of the movement was to boss them and take from them that Independent control of their own properties which Is essential to their development. They are to-day not attracted by the proposition and would prefer that It be Indefinitely postponed, but their preferences aside It has become right and necessary that that '.'measure of pnrtnerahlp" between the people, who grant exclu sive rights, and the corporations, which enjoy them, should be made more definite and exact. There Is no extensive antl-corporatlon hysteria In trio stato of Connecticut, though there Is a well grounded belief that In order to get the most for all concerned out of the formal recognition of the prin ciple of private monopoly the state must exercise a larger control than It lias done in the, past. It. Is now seen that the alt.ernn.tlve of this policy, which Is the child of new conditions, la governorship ownership, and, while there is much to bo said on that side of. the question, it Is the conviction of conservative Connecticut that Inde pendent, control with state oversight Is tho better policy to pursue. This Is plainly the conclusion to which the commission, sympathetically or un synipathetlcally as the case may be, arrived. They found upon Inquiry an.l Investigation no esenpe from It. Just as nifiny others, who have looked Into the proposition without prejudice, found no escape from a like con clusion. The report, of tills particular com mission will encourage Connecticut In utilize the ability and Judgment of ollii r oT lis citizens to Inquire into ollnr subjects which there, is little hi ' of the i 11 -?.' 1 1 assembly, with Its miillilarlouM duties, doing.

Until now there has been much con fusion regarding President-elect Taft's attitude towards the re-election of Mr. Cannon to the speakership of the fed eral house of representatives. The Vice-President-elect Mr. Sherman, has said that Mr. Tuft would not Interfere In the organization of the house, but, now conies Mr, Rurton of Ohio with the statement, which bears the approval of Mr. Taft, that that gentleman will act In the premises only when he becomes assured that Mr. Cannon and his friends will use the speakership for the purpose of obstructing legislation which Mr. Taft. pledged the country to advance In event, nf his election. This squares better with the coun try's estimate of Mr. Taft's character than the Impression given by Mr. Sher man. Mr. Taft. In not a man to un dertake the Job of running all of the departments of the government. He Is a. man who can be said to possess In the highest degree the constitutional sense and will he content to let the government run along as provided for In the constitution, but he Is at the same time a man who would not hesi tate to use his Immense moral influ ence, If ha became convinced that It was the purpose of-the leader. In con gress to sidetrack campaign promises. Congress possibly has jet to learn that a promise Is a promise with Mr. Taft and that In this connection he resem bles Drover Cleveland who brought the entire controversy down to the form ula: "Public office Is a public trust." If President Taft ha? his way there will bo a serious and sincere revision of the tariff. With the redemption of this pledge In mind he now practically says to the congressional leaders, that he has no desire to Interfere with their political prerogatives but that If they have agreed to obstruct the well known policies of the Incoming administra tion, he Will find a way to cross swords with them. Says Mr. Burton with Mr. Taft's approval: "Besides the tariff there were other promises con tained In the party platform and reit erated by the President-elect which must, be fulfilled even at. the cost of a contest, for the speakership. N'o doubt Mr. Taft would oppose Mr 'snnon very reluctantly, but ns the head of his party as well as the Presde?it-epct of the nation he Is hound to met the ex pectations of tho people and to Insist upon the observance of party pledges " There the situation rests for the present. The next stop Is Mr. Can non's. THR 3h !TlMTTO. The escape of four prisoners from the county Jail on Whalley avenue last week created something of a sensa- l.tl.m. The fact that they had only short terms still to srve out, but were willing, In spite of. that fact, to run the risk of detection and subse quent punishment for attempting to escape, naturally suggests the conclu sion that there was some laxity on the part of the Jail officials, which made all this possible. Those, however, who have harbored any bitter criti cism, because of tills Incident, against the sheriff or any of his aids (and It has been brought to oil r attention that there are some who have), should make the effort to better acquaint themselves with the true situation. The plain truth of the matter Is that Sheriff 7-tugo Is decidedly handi capped In look out for the dregs of humanity, who have been put In his charge, by a serious lack of guards and otlier assistants. This would still be the situation did he have a thor oughly modern Jail structure in which to 'house his prisoners, but It Is doubly true with such ft conglomerate collec tion of Inadequate buildings, attached each to the other, as makes up w-.iat Is to-day known as the New Haven County jail. A. few statistics and comparisons Wll make, this perfectly clear. There has been, for Instance, an average of 37-fi to SRO prisoners at this local Jail during tho last three months. To care for this number there Is an allowance for the services of only five guards, one guard to eaci seventy-five In mates. Jn the state's prison nt. Weth ersfleld, to make a. comparison, which Is only fair, there are on ,n average RflO prisoners. To look out, for these the state provides as ninny as twenty eight guards, an allowance of one guard to ever fourteen prisoners, quite a difference The local Jail authorities have been compelled to make use of the "trusty system" on a. large, scale. With this nyitem It Is always Mo cus tom to offer some -worth -while curtail ment of a 'prisoner's sentence, If he proves faultless and honorable in tho dlscharKo of his guard duties. Rut no curtailment is ever mndo on sen tence of under three months, ami then-fore no fmort, time primmer arc niiule use of ns "trusties." As the great majority of the prisoners Kent, to the Whalley avenue Institution are for these shorter terms, the number of ( available "trusties" Is always nmtvM a.s compared with Wof.liersfiehl. As a result, Inferior "trusties" have to In chosen nud escapades, such as thai of Little Civic Sermons, JVo. 15. CITY FORESTERS. r-p HE time has como when cities and towns should 'i- place control of their street trees in the" hands of men trained for the task, as the city of Newton has just done. Serving the city formally, a forester can informally act as an adviser of private citizens and ex tend his influence far beyond the bounds of strictly mu nicipal activities. Co-operating with state foresters where thoy exist, and with federal officials set apart for this important service, a city forester may bring to bear the best expert aid of the country upon any im portant problem which arises growing out of invasion by new insect pests, Boston Herald. last, week, are certain to happen again and again. The other great trouble arises out of the arrangement of the prlson- hulldlng Itself. The original structure, which Is still standing, was built. In 1 857. It has been added to, a wing here and a. building there, until to day the result. Is anything except a modern jail. With innumerable doors, corners, crannies, and hiding places, It Is no easy task for a guard to perform his duties wlr'ii accurate precision. F.ven great noises cannot be heard from one end to the other a good city block. This was well Illustrated last week, when one .!' the "trusties" bat tered away with a sledge hammer at a. door and succeeded In breaking through It without as much as a sound of it being heard l the guards. The situation Is a peculiar one, an.l an unusual one. Those who have been criticizing the sheriff have been short sighted. What Is needed Is an ap propriation from the proper authori ties which would make It possible lo obtain the services of more guards. In addition, It must be perfectly char that the time Is fact approaching when Xew Haven county must have a new and better Jail than at present. Tiiii nr.i i.t. If, Indeed, the times must come (once In seven years 1s not over-frequent) when our good friend Johnny Harvard must defeat dear old Kllhu on the grid Iron, we believe we can reflect the f'nt I in' tils of every Vale man when we express the hope such defeats may al ways be lle that nt Vale Field Satur day. Without a doubt It was an honor, a great honor, fnr Harvard to win such a game; bul. on the other hand, with out offering any excuses. tber was honor and glory for the "blue stock -Inged men'' of Val" In loping such a came. Furthermore, unless our con elusions are far astray, tho Harvard Yale football game of 190S will go down In history not only as hotly-contested and clamorously nitemled, but ns marking the birth of a new and closer friendliness between the adherents of the two oldest institutions of the conn -try, which are, and ever must be, nat ural rtvals In every activity however thev are viewed It mm hn ?nod ,,, ,be ho, from Harvard to celebrate a footbill ' , , victory on 1! " Yale prldiron Not in ; years had they been so privileged TbeJ i Salome whirlwind dancers of h stage were not In it" with some of Ihe gray- haired Harvard pered down on the turf to cavort about, as they bad so often been compelled to see the men of Yale do. after lowering the crimson colors In defeat. Hut, what ever else, let this be said and said em phatically to the lasting reputation of Old Harvard that In all that uproar and confusion which followed In the few short moments after the last whistle had blown, Harvard and Har vard men did not for one moment for get themselves. What more Inspiring sight was there during all that after noon of concentrated thrills than when the Harvard legions gathered In front of the Vale cheering section, whence came the beloved strains of our "Bright College Years." there to burst forth In the, mightiest cheer of the afternoon In compliment to their tested rivals of New Haven? It was a supremo mo ment, when an Intercollegiate friendship worth boasting nf was cemented. Vale Is always a hard loser. Yale Is always perfectly willing to admit that It is on Ihe athletic field llrst, last, and always to win. That Is sport. Nothing could have more truly shown how hard a loser Yale Is than the sign I Hen nt. way In which her adherents persisted In quietly watching, watching, watch ing and waiting for their tonm to make good In those moments of agony toward the close of the game, A Princeton cheering section, In a similar predicament, would have yelled Its lungs out In song and shout, urging Its men on. Not so with Yale. Yet, In spite of the difficulty Yale always ex periences In swallowing defeat there have been few moments when Harvard and flic men of Harvard seemed dearer to Vale men Hum In Hint, short session at. (he field Saturday after the game, If ever Yale ever loved Harvard, It did then, I'seless and unsportsmanlike It Is now lo say lhat the crimson won by n. very small score. Victory Ih victory ami 11. miss is as good as 11, mile. In the years to conm when future gen erations of Yale men read their annals of Vale events it will be the fact that Harvard won that will lie nil -Important, not I he score by which Harvard won. Wllh no excuses to offer fale to-day takes Its defeat with the best grace available. "Oral It!" says the Son of the Fence, graduate and under graduate. "Johnny Harvard got the best of me. Well he'd better look to his laurels next I'me we meet," And he stakes his hopes on the Thames and the diamond next June. So let the curtain fall on Hie 1!i0R football season." We of the east are constantly wont to pride ourselves, whether It be with cause or not, upon the fact, that die west "has very little on 1 us" In any thing and especially not In urn Iters of jurisprudence. Hut Chicago has just turned up with an example of llgltt-nlng-speed court -procedure. At 1:30 one afternoon, Peter Van Visslng en wiifl arrested In his Chicago olllce by a detective. At f o'clock that same afternoon, three hours and a half later, he hnd been sentenced to fourteen years of Imprisonment for having swindled twenty-live people during the last twenty years. That, is "going some." Anyway the Vale stndcntr, were not stranded out of town without enough money to get back to the campus n. a result of the gntne.
