The evident disinclination of the pub
lic service corporation of tlie state to

public utilities commission nifty to ex
plained on the ktouihI thnt It does not
berm'ie Riihstnntlnl In their judgment
until It readies the , 'illative staye. It
Is doubtless siitflel nt for them to study
the riM-oinineiidation m title, and satisfy
themselves that nothing Is proposed
which woijlil work tin actual Injustice
to tbelr Interests. or can nny pren:
fault lie found with this attitude of
mind. It is a U'k step which the stale
proposes to take and all bli; stsps nre
more or less frmnrht with possible con
frequence?!, but so the recognition of the
principle of natural monopoly ,y the
general assembly was a biq step to
lake and it was the taking of thnt step
which led to the consideration of n
public utilities law, more for example,
tlinn n ciirloim desire to follow In the
ivake of the state of New York. We
can understand the human (Wire of
the public servb-e corporations to fol
low their ow n pri ference In IssulnR
now stock, additional bonds or fresh
certificates of Indebtedness, hut It haB
been borne In upon thoughtful people
who are not prejudiced In any plvon
direction that so Intimate Is the re
lationship between the patronizing
public and the operating corporations
that mutual restrictions have, become
inevitable. It1 does make a difference
with both the service kIvoii and the
cost churned how j?reat an Indebted
ness Is rolled up, and It Is unquestion
ably wise and rlirht that there should
ho some power to say what that debt
shall be and what form It shall take.
There, Is. still some room for appre
hension with regard to the attitude or
the puhllc'sorvlce corporations towards
the, proposed legislation, In view of
their original attitude towards the
creation of a commission of Inquiry. It
la difficult to believe, that they are any
mora Inclined to a closer scrutiny and
ovorslsht than they were, before, but to
offset this preference for no legisla
tion In favor of some legislation Is the
present state of mind on the part of
tho public. There Is no question but
that the people of Connecticut have
reached a definite conclusion aa to tho
tic (1 for additional legislation affecting
jiublic service corporations. It would
be. too much to say that they know ex
actly what they want in terms of law,
but It la not too much to say that ho
far as results tire concerned they have
thought tho subject out thoroughly.
,nd It l.s nt this point that the prob
able nttltudti of the public service cor
porations becomes of real Interest from
tlio standpoint of the future content
ment of the state of Connecticut.
It would be In the nature of a calam
ity If through opposition of a technical
or direct character the proposed legis
lation should be so amended that ulti
mately the people would awake to the
. fact that nothing Hiibatantlnl had been
accomplished In throwing new safe
giiardK about the management of these
properties. Tlio thought should be up
permost In the minds of the legislature
unit tho corporations that the failure
to brliiK anything substantial forth
from tho careful Investigation which
bus 1eoii made, of the subject will
surely stimulate the movement to add
Kovernmont owncrBhlp to the list of
Connecticut political issues, president
.Mellon himself onco said In a public
speech that he recognized that the fall

Tho urgent need that exists for
better seating accommodations at the
football games held under Ynle's
auspices each fall In New Haven Is
apparent. It was time that some
thing was done In tills regard. Tho
representatives of the press have been
told repeatedly by those athletic au
thorities nt Yale, who would have the
building f n, new stadium on their
linndH, that no such move Is being
contemplated by them. The time
must come, however, and there is
every Indication that It will come
shortly, when these gentlemen will be
forced to take the matter In hand.
Not only Is undergraduate senti
ment being aroused on this all-Important
question, but graduate sentiment
Is being focussed on a stadium, too.
The former Is reflected In the Yale
News, which. In nn editorial yesterday
.morning, said: "If Harvard, Pennsyl
vania and Syracuse can erect stadiums
on their athletic fields. It seems pe
culiar that Yale has thus far been In
capable of the same action. . . Hut
tinder nny conditions let ur shake off
this present lethargy and look Into
the future Instead of being wrapper!
up In the present.' From Hoston
comes the Harvard plaint, in the rol
nnins of the Hoston Herald. Says that
paper: "The inadequate accommoda
tions for n game with Harvard which
Vale's football ground revealed last
Saturdav will hasten the building
nt New Haven of n stadium. Fifty
thousand people wanted to see last
last week's game, but regard for law,
comfort and safety prevented more
than :i2,(in0 from doing so. Neither
construction of such a coliseum nor
payment creates an insoluble prob
lem." Tt will be interesting to read
what the Yale Alumni Weekly has to
say fm the matter.
ft would be n fnr different problem
presented If suitable funds were not
available, but they are. The Yal"
football association's receipts for this
season alone will total fully JTO.fiofi,
according to the latest reports a tidy
sum! The association already has a
goodly amount in the bank. Proba
bly the expense of a new stadium
could be met at once. If not, bonds
could be Issued and there can be no
doubt but that such an Issue would
meet with a ready and satisfactory
sale.
A stadium could not well be built
on the site of the present gridiron,
which Is not altogether satisfactory.
The question of 'accessibility Is quite
as Important as that of seating ac
commodations. A new stadium, if
one Is bad, should be directly by the
railroad tracks, and as near to the city
as possible, Several sites have been
suggested. There will "be little diffi
culty In getting rid of the present
field. The land Is wanted by the ad
jacent cemetery.
It Is only a question of time at best,
when the present stands must jdve
way. Holng made of wood they are
susceptible to the weather. To con
tinually and repeatedly repair them
entails considerable fixed ' expense.
The seating capacity should be much
larger than the present stands. The
Syracuse stadium Is at present the
largest In the country. Certainly Yale
can use a structure fully as large as
Syracuse. This fall 2' per cent, of
the Yale and Harvard graduates
could not be accommodated with seats
let alone the general public. Aside
from football, the structure could be
used for many different, purposes. Tho
faet that the commencement exercises
of Syracuse were held In the stadium
there last .Tune and that since then a
saengerhund has held a convention
and has Riven concerts In It, suggests
some of the uses to which such a stad
ium at Yule might be put.

The fight ngalnst Mr. Cannon as a
candidate to succeed himself as the
speaker of the national house of rep
resentatives should not he made the
less strenuous, but rather it should
wax the warmer. In view nf the f.ict
that there Is every present Indication
that he will win out In his ambition.
Somebody has said that "Joe" Can
non, unlike most politicians, thrives
most when the opposition to him Is
the wirmest. Serlonslv, there seems
to he some truth In that statement.
Yet. even were It true, those who have
seen so many worth-while bills, in
which they hnve boon Interested, de
feated In congress mainly through his
efforts .is speaker, cannot nt all satis
fy their consciences now In omitting
the protest and vigorously fight lis
reelection lo that office at every pes
sible Juncture.
Mr. Cannon is whit Is known In the
vernacular of the streets as a "foy
He has proved bis right to that title
time and again. Mr. Cannon was
never more ,i "fox." In a political
sense, than he is to-day. Th
sentl- j
ment in Washington and Ciroughont
the country to-day Is Increasingly In
favor of certain tariff reforms. Mr.
Carnegie's observations on the subject.
Just made public, nro most slgnlficnn'.
Mr. Tafl's campaign pledge to bring
about a new tariff law was not at all a
pledge made under compulsion, but
one which he has and does back up
whole-heartedly. in view of these
facts, It means a groat political ad
vantage for Mr. Cannon, If be can
made It appear that he would do all
In his power. If re-elected speaker of
the house, to bring about these very
tariff laws now contemplated. This
he attempts to do now. In spite of his
repented assertions during the late
campaign that he, as speaker, had ah-
solutdy no power to make or defeat
laws, that power resting solely In the
hands of the members of the house on
the floor.
The country should not be deceived
by this new announcement of Mr.
Cannon, much loss those who will
make up the membership of tho next
house of representatives. He Is but
strengthening hlsspcakership chances.
Mr. Cannon has long been known as
an avowed adherent of a high protec
tive tariff. Furthermore, he Is not the
man to change, his views on such a
fundamentally important (picstlon as
this over night or In a snort lime. Mr.
Cannon Is a. "fox" and It behooves
those who have It, In their hands to
select the next speaker, on whom In
turn will rest much of tho responsibil
ity as to the new tariff, to be "foxier."

It is fiieer what varying Ideas some
people hnve. Tnder the same date of
news dispatches a professor In n lec
ture presents St. Luke the evangelist
"ns a, law reporter," and In Kansas a
clergyman In the course of a revival
meeting urges that a lawyer, William
.1. llrynn, should be nn evangelist, and
"would become the equal of the Apos
tle 1'aul," he declares.
There Is no doubt, that Mr. Hryan
possesses the persuasive power nf an
,, , , , , . , ., ,
evangelist and were he to take the fld-
vice of the Kansas minister he would
bave greater success than In running
for the presidency. Where ho can
not. make political converts, he may
make religious ones. About a, week
ago a, religious Journal of Boston sug
gested that Mr. Hryan's religious tem
perament, would In' a hindrance to a
practical view and administration of
affairs as president. Thus too much
religion becomes dangerous in the ex
fctillve of H. nation, but us an evange
list religion Is perfectly safe.
