The DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION have been much in evidence of late. The sixth annual conference of the Connecticut Society was held with the Stamford Chapter on May 22. Each of the forty-one chapters was represented, about 400 members being present, including two "real daughters," Miss Nancy Warren of the Stamford Chapter and Miss Lucy M. Osborn of the Danbury Chapter. Mrs. Sara T. Kinney of New Haven, the State Regent, presided, and the President-General Mrs. Daniel Manning and regents from several other states were present. The sessions were mostly taken up with the reading of historical papers. The Katherine Gaylord Chapter of Bristol has recently forwarded to our soldiers at Manila a large box of reading matter, which is sure to be appreciated in that far away land. On June 8 the Ruth Wyllys Chapter of Hartford held a largely attended reception at the Athenæum, for the purpose of meeting those who had aided the Chapter in its effort to improve the old Center Church burying ground. The seventeenth of the same month witnessed the consummation of the work in the formal delivery of the deeds, which, with the widening of Gold Street, brings

THE LEGISLATURE OF 1899. HE GENERAL ASSEMBLY of Connecticut closed the session of 1899 last month after a considerable amount of hard and not unimportant work. Its committees deserve high praise for a large amount of conscientious and valuable labor; a great deal of which was neither seen nor heard of by the public at large. Individually and collectively the members seemed actuated by the best of intentions, and with few exceptions, undoubtedly strove honestly to do their duty. It was on the whole as clean and disinterested a body as it is possible to get in these days. Improvements may come when the people are educated up to a fit appreciation of what government is really intended for, and when the Decalogue, or something like it, has a binding force among men

once more.

We have little sympathy with the kind of criticism that condemns wholesale the work of our state legislatures, assumes that their members are all dishonest and generally guilty of seizing every opportunity to plunder the public treasury. This kind of indiscriminate accusation and baseless imputation is as common as it is unjustifiable, and it is unfortunate that reputable journals help to give it circulation by printing as news what they know very well is only irresponsible rumor. There is,

however, a legitimate criticism which is not only always in place but necessary.

In his inaugural address the Governor said of the special commission appointed in 1897 to reduce state expenses, "If this committee has gone to the root of evils, it will report in favor of vigorous legislation which will result in large retrenchment. . . . If you shall give to this report your careful consideration you will save to the state for the next two years hundreds of thousands of dollars, and so be able to vote increased appropriations for objects that are worthy and urgent."

The recommendations of the commission were independent and courageous, and, as the Governor anticipated, in the main reasonable. But they might as well never have been made so far as the Assembly was concerned for it took but scant notice of them. The financial extravagance was as unexpected as it was needless and unreasonable. Salaries were raised where there was not the slightest real need and appropriations were refused where the necessity for them was crying.

The application of the Boston and New York Telephone Company for a charter was refused, perhaps rightly, but in this connection it is proper to say that the relations existing between the members of the General Assembly and the company

now enjoying a monopoly of the business in Connecticut give rise to unpleasant reflections. This company issued to every legislator a free pass book, franked his messages, and granted him practically an unlimited use of its wires gratis-a privilege few were slow to take advantage of. We think it is only reasonable to say that this does not commend itself to citizens who desire their representatives to be freehanded and uncompromised in all their actions.

The bill that gave to a private company the sovereign right of eminent domain was engineered through the two houses by anything but creditable means. Gov. Lounsbury is entitled to the hearty thanks of the people whose rights he guarded and protected by promptly vetoing the charter granting such enormous privileges. The senate at last put itself on record as opposed to the payment of gratuities to newspapers or their reporters. This is a step in advance for which the whole state will be sincerely thankful, as the matter had become a standing disgrace to the fair name of Connecticut. But the dis

graceful scenes enacted in the closing hours of the session, when the halls of legislation were turned into a cock pit, when the members engaged in rough and tumble fights similar to those usually occurring in low bar-rooms, when every movable article of furnishing and ornament that could be seized on was hurled back and forth by excited rowdies--this was a passage in the history of the legislature of 1899 which the voters of the state can only remember with the deepest shame. It is such incidents as these that are telegraphed across the water, and is it any wonder that our many unkind and contemptuous critics there use them as evidence of our uncouthness and the farcical nature in general of republican institutions? The Roman Senate is only remembered by most people for its dignity. Can we not send even the tradition of legislative dignity down to our posterity? We can if every self respecting man in Connecticut will take occasion to tell his representative exactly what he thinks of such ruffianly rowdyism. A change would soon follow if such a thing were done.
