Dr. House, at Portland, Oregon, recalls the lively political times In Connecti cut twenty-six years ngo when the younger democratic element of the state wrested the control of the or ganization from th" oM leaders. The motn morphof Is wis more due to the leadership of Mr. Parsons In that struggle between party factions than to any one else. His was just the na ture an.1 temperament to make a fight of that, character successful. Mr. Parsons was a graduate of Yale In the class of ISfiS. and knew the state of Connecticut pretty well. Aft er graduation he practiced law In Pennsylvania, returning later to this state to take up newspaper work In New Haven. Tin was never what would he technically known as a newspaper maker. He was, however, an editorial writer of unusual force and effectiveness. It became his self imposed ta.k to Innoculate the demo cratic party of the state with more of the spirit of progresslveness than It possessed under the leadership of the older and conservative leaders, was had for years dictated the policy of the organization and selected Its standard bearers. He, with his polit ical counsellors selected - young Tom Waller of New London as the man most likely to win In the state con vention. The convention which that year nominated Mr. Waller for governor Is still well remembered by many, who have since played but a small part in the life of the democratic party. No man could have been selected for gov ernor who was so offensive to the old men as he. They regarded him as a reactionary, and t'ney professed not to kn.nv what would happen to the his toric organization If he were given the reins. Undismayed by this force ful opposition, Mr. Parsons and his friends' set out to win the day. They met the statements of such powerful mn ss Editor Burr of the Hartford Times, who personally took the floor in opposition to Mr. Walter's nomina tion, with Increased determination. In a struggle, which has not Its parallel In the 'history of the democratic party In Connecticut, the Waller faction made constant and sensational gains, defying threatened exeommunleatl m and scorning offers of compromise. In the end they had driven the old war riors of the party Into the corner an.l had forced them to surrender uncon ditionally. Waller was the nominee of the convention snd after a whirl wind campaign, such as he could alone make, was elected hy a. clear majority over all opposing candidates, aa required at that time by the state constitution. The character of the flght Mr. Par sons put up against the republican nominee and the fearlessness of his campaign for Mr. Waller convinced the state of his ability as a political leader, hut. when he sought confirma tion by the republican state senate of bis nomination by Governor Waller for the Insurance conimlsslonerslilp revengeful human nature asserted It self and he was rejected hy a large majority. The very source of his power In the slate convention proved to bo the source of :hln weakness be fore the senate as it, formal nominee for an Important state office. Within four years thereafter Mr. Parsons had received an Important appointment to the, federal service at President Chive land's hands, and he passed out of the political life of Connecticut. Of Mr, Parsons personally it can be said with truth that few men, If any, have ever entered the journalistic life of Con necticut. ami within so snort a time Impressed themselves so indelibly up on It. He made tlrm friends and de termltied enemies, but. ho was recog tilzo.1 by all as a fearless and straight. fighter for the I ruth as he saw It. His death closes an adventuresome mid picturesque rareer, a career which found much to further shape it In the brej.v ussl. MR, r atiKi;ii: in: Ann in nil. j j 'As lime ('". on, II beciiiiics more nod more apparent that .mino laitnibl" it ml definite reforms may be expected in the tariff laws. When tin1 committee! on ways uml means, which has the Inl-i tlallvM In Its hands, began t,s le'ii Hums I some days ago, there were any mini-I her of scoffers to predict. Hint, there j would be much smoke tail little real fire, much talk of tariff reform but lew! real mid tangible reforms. It bus been predicted that, as nt previous beaiitiKS on the tariff rjucsllnn, the unit I run Jorlty of those to come before Hie coin-: mltleo would be manufacturers, who have little real desire for a cbittige. There Is now, however, every Indica tion thai this will not he the esse. The committee, In tho first place, has de cided to hold hearings for a longer pe riod titan any previous committee has ever done and Is now doing all that any man could ask of It to get, at the root of the matter, holding three ses sions a day, morning, afternoon and evening. Furthermore, Chairman Payne, of the committee, has more than once openly expressed Ills hope that every faction vitally Interested In the tariff would make an object of sending a representative before the committee. There Is every present In dication that Mr. Taft and the re publican party Intends to "make good" In bringing about a new tariff law. But, especially Interesting In this connection Is the stand of Mr. I'nrne gle. If his sentiments at all reflect those of the producers of the country generally, the now tariff laws are as good as on t,he books already. It Is, Indeed, a novel sensation to learn that a man like Mr. Carnegie, whose nill llons.hav. largely been accumulated as a result nf the high protective tariff, not only believes that most of our so called "Infant" Indus-tries have long since grown to mature stature and are capable of standing alone In competi tion with the world, but that he is will ing to say so openly. Mr, Carnegie I.? a close student. He never speaks with out conviction and sincerity. He has never written a truer statement, how-j ever, than now, when, speaking of the tariff, he says: "The Infant we have nursed approaches the day when It should be weaned from tariff milk and fed upon tho stronger food of free com petition. It needs little, If any more, nourishing, but the change should not be made abruptly." Would there were more moneyed men In this country, whose millions have been accumulated aa the result of the tariff, to come forward and make such straight-forward statements of the true situation. It Is certain that what Mr. Carnegie' says will make a big stir among the high-tariff fraternity. That will be t because he Is reciting truths which j should have been publicly ncknowl- j edged by all of them years ago. When ) all these gentlemen show a like willing-1 ness to acknowledge the true state of! affairs, It may be believed that the country-at-large will greatly benefit. Mr. Carnegie has not over night come from a high tariff point of view to a free trade point of view. There are few men anyway who do propose a free trade policy for this country. Mr. Car negie does not. what Mr. Carnegie does realize Is that "It Is advisable for new countries to encourage capital by protective duties, when seen to be ne cessary to develop new Industries" and that the time must come when such protection of certain struggling Indus tries becomes unnecessary and that It should then be steadily abolished. The "steel king" has bad the cour age to come forward and to knowl edge that his Is no longer an "Infant Industry." Now what other "king" will have the .courage of their convic tion to step up and likewise tes tify. V4t.Fl FnOTTMM, ruiTIPIIMS. We, have Always believed Ynle men gome" losers. We helleve, so yet. The Ability to win Is undoubtedly the best test either of tho man or the univers ity; hut, next to It, may bo ranked the fthlllty to suffeir defeat In fl thoroughly sportsmanlike way. It Is more pleasing to bellevn that most of the post mortem excuses and crflclsms now be ing offered In some, quarters for tho defeat of the Ta.l team hnve rndlnted not from Tale men, hut. from outsid ers. Tt Is p,ve,r the Yale man's policy to accept, athletic defeat, as fate, rt comes his tray hut seldom and he can afford to. The usual result Is that, he simply takes account, of what "natural re sources" he htis left hltn and glrdu bis belt about him tightly as he goes grimly to face the next, contest on the endless round of athletics. The Roston Globe, for Instance, ban printed a dispatch, purporting to radiate, from New Haven, In which it states that, the Yale student body unanimously aswerts that the defeat was directly the f h 1 1 1 1 of Captain Burch. Evan were thai the case It. were both uncharitable ami unlike Yale to say so. Captain Burch la ns true a Yale, man as ever was and his en deavors for the blue th la foil have been as earnest. In comparison with his ability as those nf any Yale captain, Another criticism which the (Hobo gives credence to Is that "Tad" Jones faithfully promised to take charge of tho coaching of the Vale quarterback, hut (hat "he has been absent from the practice a great deal of the full, and has apparently considered IiIk conchlng of secondary Importance to other f. fairs" Kneli Is the talk of children We bleve .VJr Jones h:i dune enough for the cause of Yale football to exempt Little Civic Sermons, A'o. Id. JUDICIAL REFORMS. Tartly hocauso tho bench and the bar tolerate dil -atory, frivolous and often ridiculous proceedings by un scrupulous counsel intended to cheat justice ; partly because our lawmakers afford almost infinite facilities for review of judicial action to the criminal, although very stingy in allowing them to the government, mainly because our laws show little sense of the value to so cicty of a speedy administration of justice, wo have de lay, and all that makes for delay makes against the effl racy of the criminal law. When the people of an Amer ican state or the American nation decree death to whomsoever s7ia.ll do thus and thus, and then let the transgressor live for months and years while lawyers wrangle and juries disagree and judges reverse each other, there is room for doubt, and doubt, in fact, whether tho state or nation does, in truth, mean busi ness. That sovereign punishes with double efficacy and triplo certainty who punishes while the crime is rank and recent. Attorney-General Bonrparto at Na tional Civic League Convention, Pittsburg. him from such criticism nt this time. I,e Tale men desist from attempting to place the blame for Saturday's de feat upon Individual men of such acknowledged superiority us Captain Unroll or "Tad" Jones.

Tin: inn. n With the passim; MiorriMi it' Thanlisgi ing I 'ay will come the attractive demands mi the hearts and purses of the people of New Haven which are created by thi: holiday season. II can be inado a merry season, or it can lie made a burdensome season, according as one meets it with a sense of order and i method or a sense of disorder ami confusion. The lirst thing to consider are the shops with their carefully display", holiday goods; anil the proper d I reu nify to their whereabouts will of course In- found In the advertising columns of this newspaper. Once located it h. comes a matter of local patriotism to seek in local shops the gratillctttlon of needs shaped by the holiday spirit. While there is no law which forbids people shopping where they please, there is a moral obligation resting on people to support their borne mer- chants, whom as everyone knows each year show a more enterprising ami metropolitan nplrit In meeting the wants of the N'ew Haven public, it is this spirit, which In the fi t-t place an imates the business life of the city and makes It more and more nn Increas ingly attractive place to live In. Tt Is the other spirit on the pnrt of the purchasing public, which In the sec ond place aids In determining the perfected life of New Haven. Hence the doctrine; "Read The Journal Courier and Trade at Home" Is found to possess economic Importance. The fecund thing to consider Is tho opportunity early shopping gives the shopkeepers and clerks to bear nyn'e easily the Heavy burden necessarily Imposed by the holiday reason. The most direct result of postponing Christmas shopping until the near ap proach of the holiday Is to wear out Ihe nerves nf the givers and the health of the fdoro clerks. It is desirable to avoid both, and It will he found, If the consideration I" which we al lude is shown those most concerned, that (lie sense of kindly humanity, which Is the particular characlerlstlc of the holiday season, will at once take on a larger and more substantial meaning.
