The election court ex ceeds In dlKiiity any of the courts he low that of the superior court, which of Itself cstahllshes what should he the general and specific attitude to wards It. Its approach should he awaited patiently, and the work cut out for It should not hp prejudged, as Bome newspapers have come danger ously near doing. The annoyance and Irritation to Which those named In the summons may have been sufijceted ouht not In any way to Influence a puhllc consid eration of the court and Its petitioner. It Is a well settled principle of juris prudence that a man Is innocent until proved guilty. The law cannot and does not take Into account the possible 1 annoyance and Irritation caused per sons proceeded against, contenting It self with the knowledge that If their Innocence Is established, possible an noyance and Irritation becomes actual contentment and peace of mind. In other words, If the gentlemen who have, been summoned Into court arc, us they claim to he, Innocent of any wrong doing under the corrupt prac tices act, their examination will neces sarily result In a vindication which will at once make worth while the annoyance and Irritation to which they feel now they are subjected un reasonably. The studied attitude, of The, Journal-Courier has been, since the court was grunted, that neither the guilt of the gentlemen named In the sumniMiis should he taken for granted because the court was created, nor that for the same reason the pe titioner should be conceded a Justlll- cation for the course he has pursued, Tho Very existence of the court makes a suspension of Judgment imperative. In impulsively declining to assume any such open minded policy, some, of the newspapers have been guilty of what dangerously approaches, If it does not actually express contempt of court, while they have not hesitated to Impugn false Interests and motives to others for no other reason than that those, 'others" were opposed to the election of Mr. I.llley, and In spite of the fact thnt these "others" have been the very ones not to pre judge either the complainant or the defendants. We find,, for example, In tho columns of the Hartford Ontirant, these words; "The New TIaven Journal-Courier, which has been the spokesman of the Fox element," etc. A few days ago an obvious typograph ical error In nn editorial comment wan nialiclously distorted to give the Impression that this newspaper fond prejudged the case In favor of the pe titioner. The Journal-Courier Is not tho spokesman of tho "Fox element," whoever may compose It, and has only done In this connection what every wideawake newspaper has more or less unmicccssfully done, use, the con ventional methods to induce Mr. Fox to take the, public Into his confidence as a news enterprise. In other words the attitude of some of the: newspapers of the state, In their partisan and personal sympathy for the parties named In the summons, have unjustly and unwarrantably kept under attempted public suspicion newspapers and individuals, which have scrupulously refrained from all comment, whatever since the ejection, and which have 110 morn to do with Mr. Fox's undertaking than the man In the moon. It Is that fact which is ; not. creditable to the Journalism of Connecticut. It is yet to be establish ed in this good uld state lUbt mi iude- pendent spirit of criticism or support Justifies excommunication. nWKWMil! ST.;, I There is no church deiiominal ion in America, wo believe, which lui dune better or ynore practical home mission ary work than the Kplscopal church. Perhaps It. Is because of that, very fact, that an announcement recently Hindu by by the vestry of Trinity ' church, New York, the richest parish, by all odds, In the country today, that it In tends to close Its Pt. John' chapel, on Varlck street, and sell the property, comes as a distinct surprise. The general history of the church In the city of New York has been one of continual movement uptown, Just aa has been the history of the business and best residential sections of the city. The poorer sections of the city, with all their squalor and suffering and ungodliness, have tended, on the other hand, to remain where they are. It has been that very fact, more than any other, which has materially contributed to their squalor and poverty. Tho sec tion of the city where St. John's Is has, like many another downtown section of New York, continually gone down the ; social scale until today the odlflco i stands Isolated from tho majority of the houses of worship of the city. Hut j where It stands It Is today more need led to do the real effectual work of tho 1 church than It could possibly be If It I wire moved northward, following the i movement of we alth and society. I It would be an entirely different pro position were the chapel unused and unattended, hut those who have re cently frequented It have reported Its pew, well-filled and the spirit among Its laity of the best. It seems nothing short of churchly short-sightedness to allow the building-wrecker to tear down these walls. Kven were It nut paying expenses, certainly Trinity par ish Is rich enough to support a hundred such chapels outright. The question Is whether the very rich churches are to entirely overlook the prime objects of the church, which Is the advancement of the kingdom of dod on earth, or whether they are primarily to look out for their financial and social status. The proposition to tear down St. John's has made a big ,tir In New York as It should, it Is to he hoped that the members of the vestry of Its mothrr-church will realize the respon sibility which lies on their shoulders. Not only Is St. John's In an excellent position to do effectual religious work, but Its Influence upon civic-feeling and public sentiment must be considerable, if we bear in mind the Intimate rela tionship of the church and good citizen ship which Governor Hughes recently pointed out. As he said, "There are In churches, in synagogues, In various as sociations, religious and not religious, civic, social, under all sorts of ban- ners, a host of men and women who are devoted to the attainment of what Is right and Just, and they will attain It, both with regard to the government of the city and with regard to the gov- ernmetit of the state." should remain where It is. St. John's THK MltiHT TO Kil l.. The state of Connecticut has Indulg ed in another hanging at the state's prison and an expectant puhllc, which has been brought up In the belief that It possesses the power to kill, is prom ised ko:iio more like entertainment within a short time. There are more men confined In that Institution under the death pennltv than ever before in the history of the state, which would seem to Indicate that the death penalty Is not wholly effeetive as a deterrent, whatever may be said of it as a means of disposing of miserable human trash, it cannot lie possible as the years 1 multiply, that Connecticut will adhere to Its Insensitive policy of applying the principle nf an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. It Is not sentimentallsm which prompts the consideration of the barbaric, practice; It Is a genuine re gard for the tiner traits of human nature, which must lie more and more encouraged If any given community is to live tip to the best there is in It. The right of the Individual to take human life Is denied, and it Is proper that so ciety should exact from tho murderer some dellnlte sacrifice, In order that It may protect Itself against a brood of murderers, but It certainly does not follow that what an Individual cannot do a group of Individuals can do. ""So ciety run on that theory in all of Its ramlllcH.tlons would soon come upon a kind of civilization, which would make for retrogression, If not for something worse. The whole question of the alleged right of a state to kill finally gets down to what Is both morally right and ad vantageous to do, not what a law njak ing body may say Is legally right to do and theoretically beneltclal. For Its own moral welfare a state in this twen tieth century ought not to take life formally because life has been' taken Informully. A statu should be even more careful of Its powers than a man Is of his Independence, for while the Individual Is, limited In his nblllly to Injure, the stale can by a mistaken act do society a. fearful harm. Kvery thoughtful man must,, if he stops and thinks about il, feel a touch of humili ation, if not depression, when he reads In his newspaper the account of a le gal killing, for it leads to a considera tion of the forces and elements which may have stood back of the criminal's act, and which may to that extent of fer imne kind of un explanation which The Empty Stocking. Resolve That This Year There'll Be Something In It. DO you know of any little stocking that bids fair to be empty Christmas morning ? For just a min ute stop your day's work, stop worrying about what you'll get your own youngsters or your friends, stop speculating on what you are going to receive,, and re solve that there shall be something in that stocking. Oh, it doesn't matter much what you put in. A bag of candy will not represent glucose only. A china doll will not stand for a plaything alone. You will put in a good deed that will better you. You will teach a young soul that not all is friendlessness and neglect, but that there is abroad in the world a spirit of love and good will old Santa Claus. You cannot sow neglect, love lessnes3 and inhumanity, and reap from such sowing generosity, gratitude, goodliness and other things that make a people truly great. Keep the picture of "The Empty Stocking" in your heart, and take your heart with you to the bargain counters. Waterbury American. would suggest a different and less brutal revenge than hanging. The elimination of capital punish ment ffoes hand In hand with the other er Improvements in tho treatment of the criminal class, which now receive the approval of all people who have in quired seriously Into criminology. It may for n. still longer time be evaded, but li cannot permanently be evaded. When society realize that It has itself sinned when It takes a human life, no matter how degraded that life was, it will furn from the practice as a nause ating recollection and be the prouder of its awakening. IJKTTlVf; TOOKTHKH. Within the la-it few days the ques tion of the taxation of Yale has taken on an entirely new aspect. From being a problem of taxing every Inch of ground which Yale may own In the city of New Hnven, it has changed to a question whether those properties should not be taxed which are owned hy the university within the city hut not used for educational purposes but rather held for Its future growth, or as revenue producers. The Journal-Courier has Insistently refused to endorse the plan to tax Yale. It has shown any number of grounds why such a thing should not be done. These do not need rehearsing at this time, it realizes, however, that If a beginning were to be made toward tax ing the university, It would most prop erly como as regards these properties nhmlt thn (,y ,vhll.h ,lnlVPrfI,v i ,, ,.,. ,llin. .n,,,,,... fr eHuenilonnl .,v'l. ,u,l(1, - purposes, There can be no question thal ,(1 ya)o ,.m,rtf.v exempts the ..mnua und ... H1ila(.ont buildings from taxation, hut there may be some doubt whether the charter allows that ex emption to be extended to other prop erties about the city. it is interesting to h am, In this con nection, that the university olilcials have expressed a willingness to meet with the aldermanlc committee on leg islation to take up this pressing mat ter In detail. Such a conference has hern arranged for this week with iTrcHMirer t,eo .McC'limg of Yale. Scarcely a month passes when there Is not some new evidence 01 town ami 'gown" getting neater together to take up mailers of Interest to each. This Is another example of It. The question of taxing Yale Is a highly Important one. For that reason It is necessary that It should lie settle 1 as soon as possible. Such a meeting as Is planned for this week can materially hasten that final settlement. A Chicago trust company president has made some observations on col lege graduates as business men which should bo of some local Interest. He Is C. P,. Riley, president of the Chicago Title. Si Trust company, it Is rat.ier difficult lo follow his reasoning. In one breath he says: "I have no doubt that, a man with training In imagina tion derived from a college education can advance rapidly," and In the next he says: "The best man in business Is the man with the greatest Imagin ation. The strongest asset a business man can have is the .power of seeing what might happen. He must also have the moral courage to go broke if necessary, and not to resort to crooked work to keep afloat." He seems to preclude the possibility that a college man may have the Innate ability not. to go broke, hut still to re sort only to legitimate business meth ods. A newspaper In Minneapolis Is ur gently favoring a revival of the old llmc and highly enjoyable custom of New' Year's calling on the first of next month. It publishes a list of such ladles us will on that day be glad to "receive" in the good, old fashioned way. It remains to be seen whether the custom will be materially revived by this means, We should like (u see it revived not only in Minneapolis but In New Haven und elsewhere, but conditions have greatly changed since the days of our fathers.

To the Kdltor of the Kick Column: Wo have laws which require that householders nnd landowners must see to It Unit the walks In front of their premises are kept free of snow and lee In winter time. The renson for this provision Is perfectly obvious. If any body falls on these walks they gener ally bring stilt against the city for large damages, and not Infrequently they obtain worth-while verdicts. For this reason 1, along with any number of other New Haveners, have hnd police men order me to have my walks clear ed. 1 do not resent this, for I know what the necessity Is.

The ('oinliip NPcrplary of State, 1 Boston Transcript.) Mr. Knox, neither as a. public man nar as a senator, can be classed with John Sherman or lilnlne, much less with Webster, who twice exchanged his seat. In the senate' for the secretaryship of state, lie nevertheless has been ait Influential senator, and .litis served long enough In the senate to acquire the senatorial traditions and the regard of his colleagues, socially and politically. II Is, therefore, a fair Inference that lie will carry into his new position not only a fair knowledge of senatorial views and standards, but. an earnest purpose lo work Willi the senate, lie is likely to keep pace wit li It, much as Seereta.rv Root, has done, Instead of antagonizing It as Mr. Hay did.

Fisher's case shewed negligence up on his part, hut there were circum stances accompanying his service for the company which did not seem to fix the blame entirely upon liltu. The case was tried hy a Jury and there was a disagreement. H Is this fact that no doubt led Stale Attorney Williams to enter the nolle. Tin average juryman docs not feel like holding a workman responsible for even actual negligence when' It may bo thai the actions of ofllclals over him were tndli Ily the cause for the hc- cldeiif.
