NY.1STBLE goviu'innont," which has so long doinin-
ated city, state and even national government, is being
thoroughly exposed by the probe of the wreck of the New
Haven railroad. A story, shameful and scandalous, has
been related by former .President Mellen, the story of a
breach of trust by the avaricious multi-millionaire kings
of finance, the betrayal and ruin of thousands of New Mug-
land investors in the successful eflort ol adding still more wasiiinotox, mv an.Tho

sary 10 corrupt councils, legislatures aim oiuciais im
special legislation, to bribe the press, to subsidize college
professors and business men, to divide the spoils with poli
ticians, to reduce the railroad officials to mere automatons
and boards of directors to dummies, carrying out blindly
and without question tho edicts of Morgan.
The Westchester railroad, ouly twenty-six miles in
length, was unloaded on the New Haven for $:r,000.000,
and Tannnanv chiefs were bribed in the deal for the fran
chise with "duo bills" for $1,200,000, redeemed by Mellen
later. Over a thousand newspapers were on the payroll.
$300,000 was loaned to the owner of the Boston Herald for
its support, and the Boston Republic, owned bv the mavor
of Boston, was financed. In 15)12, $100,000 of New Haven
money was given to the republican campaign fund.
The New Haven deals have tainted with corruption all
New England and left a once prosperous, dividend-paying
property a mere wreck, burdened with numerous money
losing branches. Its history is more or less tho history of
many railroads, and the exposures, the loss of public con
fidence in the so-called captains of industry, who have
betrayed their investors, accounts in no small degree 'rjCAl
the present financial stringency and business unrest. ntnL
(.'ailed by any other high-sounding title you please, the
New Haven transaction is nothing more nor less than rob
bery upon a million dollar scale a huge burglary tar woi-si
than those that fill our prisons', because without the motive
of necessity; a betrayal of trust more heinous than tiny of
those committed by the wearers ot convict stripes be
cause the victims number hundreds of thousands, and
avarice was the sole motive; an act of moral turpitude far
greater than those our pulpits thunder against because tt
entailed the corruption of the government and of the peo
. Tho sums the swindlers stole will be charged up against
the property and the people be asked to pay rates based
upon the fraudulent investment The people are not only
corrupted and swindled, but must pay interest on the
money they were swindled out of, and which was paid out
for their corruption.
Such railroad financiering can have but one logical out
come government ownership and operation of railroads.
Any other solution is but a premium upon robbery.

The desire to turn back the hands of the clock to the
snuffling hypocricy of Oliver Cromwell's time is very
strong. If people won't be good, they must be made good

The general assembly believes that Saturday should be
made a half holiday in order to prepare for the Sabbath
observance. Games and sport of all kinds should be for
bidden upon a Sunday, particularly the wicked game of
baseball. Excursions, picnics and fishing trips must be
cut out. The Sunday newspaper, creature of Satan as it is,
must be suppressed. Schools should not begin until Mon
day noon, so pupils will not have to study Sunday. There
is certainly a goody-good time coining.
But not content to return to puritanism, the assembly
