Finley, commissioner of education of New York, has been going afoot through Western New York studying the rural schools at first hand says the Syracuse Stand- ard. On the -way he became ac- quainted with Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca and Cayugajakes. He reports that they have beatmes as striking as anything one sees abroad. Later we hope that Dr. Finley will com- plete his trip by surveying Owasco, Skaneateles and Otisco lakes. They will add to his enthusiasm. Thanks to the automobile... New York State folks are learning what triumphs na.ure produced in Central New York. The waters of the finger lakes are as limpid, the geological environment as varied, the foliage that incloses the basins as pictures- que, as in' the lakes of England and Switzerland. They have not been so widely* advertised, that's all. The New Yorker, who wanted .some \scenery\ for his outing, has. chosen to take ship for abroad or a limited train for the mountains and canyons of the west. Here in New York, un- appreciated because so convenient, are beauties superior to those he traveled so far to see,—or' to talk about. Dr. Finley is one of the thousands of Americans who learned this sum- mer by a trying experience abroad that home is a fine place, even for vacation. New York city folk have learned the same lesson and choose hereafter to spend their summers in America; every one of these Central New York lakes, and the Adirondack lakes as well, will be surrounded with their cottages. Editorial Notes. Congress is expected to adjourn today. The session ending this week will have run close to 330 days, the longest continuous session in the his- voTy of the Federal Government. When the present congress, the sixty-third, ends by limitation of law, at noon March 4th next, it will hold the record as to the longest Congress on record. As a matter of fact Congress has been in session almost continuously since April 15, 1913, when President Wilson issued- his call for a special session to revise .^the tariff. This special merged with the regular ses- sion which began last December and has continued until now with the ex- ception of a brief Christmas recess. Previous Congresses have been in- fluenced to a remarkable degree by the Executive, not infrequently against their will, as, for example, when President Cleveland, by sheer domination, forced the repeal of the Sherman silver purchase law upon an unwilling House and a hostile Senate and also when he put through a tariff bill which resulted in an open break with the Senate, leaders of his party and finally in the disruption of the Democratic organization. President McKinley dominated Congress' without appearing to do so, President Roosevelt accomplished many things by drastie met hods, but President Wilson has undoubtedly forced more legislation through Con- gress with less friction with his party Jeaders than anj other man who has ever occupied the White House. . This Congress has excelled all records for the introduction of bills and resolutions. After the Combines. William B. George has rec^ved! assurances from a group of Ithaca's leading eitjizens that thCe George Junior Repiihlic at Freevillei which he founded, had been placed on a sound financial basis and that its $17,000 indebtedness would be paid* At a meeting of these citizens last week a committee was chosen tO,act as an advipory board. This board included A^ n <l rew D. White, first president o|f Cornell; Liberty, Hyde Bailey; Jolfin W. Dadget, former member of Congress, jand Charles E^ Treman. Ikjtr. George announced that since the filrst of October, when be took charge of the republic, twenty boys and girls had been received. He also announced that Frank Ker- nan, at one time supervisor of the self-government schools in New York city, had bleen made superintendent of the Freeiville Republic. Press dispatches report that the most gigantic engagement of the war is now being fought just across the border in western Belgium. The fighting is as yet in the preliminary stages, for the numbers actually en- gaged are ttoo great and the weight eation. .

Toal bf-Ardmore,\;<Pa. winch appeared in your paper under date of September 29th ? Ovyittg to an ab-. sence from town, this letter has just come to^my notice.. '; We probably will agree-r-you, Mr* Tdal of Ardmore, Pa., and I—that there is no way in which people differ- more than in their sense of the *ridi- culous. To those of us who are in- terested in both Sides of the ques- tion of equal suffrage, there is an element of humor in thie vagueness of the. last part of Mr. foal's oper- ing paragraph, when he asks \How can the suffragists circulate such ridiculous appeals as lately made ?\ As he does not tell us what those ap- peals are, to which he refers, it is impossible to say whether or not others .would consider them ridicu- lous. Judging from the firsl part of Mr. Toal's paragraph, • we gather the To1hase#c^ their valuables, we can offer;. , and upward. We\ invite yojuto call and examine l)IBEOTOBS ! . M. S; SAJsfBFOKD .''

Dim Lights. Now that the new state law that has gone into effect, requiring farm- ers and owners oi vehicles to display lights at night, it should result in the lessening of the number of accidents that are caused by automobiles, which® have been increased at an appalling rate. There are cases where lights are as dangerous as the absence of light altogether. A rule should be adopt- ed by the trolley company, in which its motormen should dim the glaring headlights on the front of the trolley cars, when they/see automobiles ap^ proaching. These glaring lights blind the auto driver so completely, that it is necessary to stop the car alto- gether, in order to avoid running off the road, or colliding with objects approaching from the opposite direc- tion. It is believed that within a short space of time,\ legislators will make a law, in which automqbiles wiil be obliged to dim their lights as well as the trolley cars, when they meet ap- proaching vehicles. ; Attorney General James A. Par- sons has commenced proceedings under the Donnelly Anti-Trust Act against the monopoly which he claims exists in the city of New York in. the business of egg dealing and particu- larly against the Mercantile Ex- change ot the City of New Yoek, all the cold storago warehouses and the various houses such as Armour & Company, etc. An order was granted by Supreme Court Justice John Ford in Special term part 2 of the Supreme Court of New York County on October 9th, 1914, appointing Edward R. O'Mal- ley of Buffalo, former Attorney General, referee to take the testi- mony of the witnesses requested by Attorney General Parsons. Deputy Attorney General Franklin Kennedy has been assigned by Attorney General Parsons to take charge of the investigation and present the tes- timony. The examination of the pro- ceedings is to be held at the Attor- ney General's office in the City W New York at 299 Broadway, and the first hearing will be on Thursday morning, October 22nd, at 10.30 o'clock. There is a long .story connected with this, which we have not room for now. We presume this cold storage business is perfectly legiti- mate, that people have a right to buy the 'products of the farms and the milis and hold them for an ad- vance, but some measure ought to be found to prevent extortion, and this investigation may lead to it. In New York they cold-store eggs in May at 16 to 18 cents a dozen, and hold them to the next winter and sell at 50 to 75 cents a dozen. Nor is this scheme confined to butter and eggs--it runs through all varieties cf food stuffs, and i! a way can be found to stop it, action can be taken none too soon. —On Monday November 9 tbjB- regular county court here will be convened. Jourors for this court will be drawn at the Couuty Clerk's office on Saturday morning. ;, The Progressives. The opera house was well-crowded last Friday at noon, the occasion being the Progressive candidate for Governor, Frederick M*. Daveuport, and Col. Roosevelt., Dr. W. W. Skinner presided at the meeting and spoke yery briefly, \owing to the short time the visiters could be here, only two hours, taking an hour for dinner at the Saneca. '^Senator Davenport .spoke 6rst, and he made a good im- pression. He'is well posted on state matters, and pledged that if elected he wouid leave no stone unturned to rid the capital at Albany of all forms of graft and maladministration. We arej willing to take his word, judging him from his past record. We haye an impression that his short talk will earn for him many vdtos i n Geneva. Colonel Roosevelt 1 made a much longer speech, and went more into generalities. It is evident that he is not an advocate of either Murphy or Barnes, and it is evident that he does not hold Wadsworth in very high esteem. The Colonel says that if every honest man will do his : hon- est duty on November 3d, Mr. Daven- port will sweep the state. We guess he means what he says. Of one thing we are satisfied, that had Mr. Hinman been the Republican- candi- date and been endorsed by the Pro- gressives, he would have made a strong run with a fair^of show'of election^. enormous strength in men available is so evenly divided that the greatest deliberation is being exercised by the rival commanders. The every day reader who is able to keep trace of the ups and downs of the great war in Europe is a good one. Some reports say that fully four millions of men are engaged on both sides, and this means great slaughter when they get nearer together. \. ' It is expected that the trial of Mrs. Carman for the murder of Mrs. Bailey will end this week.' The de- tense is now, being heard. Not a large number of witnesses will be sworn, and no testimony by experts will be needed, Duncan W. Peck, State Superin- tendent of Public Works, has brought criminal suit-for libel for $25,000 each against O. F. Chase of Jam«stowia and the Jamestown Eyen- ing Journal. The papers haye been served. Politics led to it. It is predicted that fully 6,500, car loads of grapes will be shipped out the Chautauqua grape region this year. Ttney are being shipped in bulk mostly, the price ranging trom $25 to $30 per ton. Over in- Penn Yan choice Catawbas have been sell- ing at $50 per ton. The Sprague appeal is almost printed, and tt is said that as soon as completed the • case will be argued before the highest court in the state, which is about time. Sprague shot George Martin three years ago and was convicted ot murder the follow- ng Feburary, but is still in Auburn prison. The expense to Yates county of this delay will be considerable.— Penn Yan Chronicle. The number of automobiles now in service in this country is said to be close to the two million mark, and thousands are being turned out at the factories every day. This does not look much like hard times, al- though dloubtless more than half in use are lumbered with mortgages. It is reported that congress will not land a tax on medicines in the bill to increase the revenues on ac- count of, the, European war. The government will get as much of the revenue out of liquors and tobacco as possible, and not disturb the ac- tual necessities of life. The proper spirit. A Protest. No Tax on Gasoline. An agreement in the House ajid Senate on the war revenue bill was reached yesterday afternoon. As a result' £he beer tax will remain at $1.50 a barrel as the House fixed it instead of $1,75, the Senate figure/ The tax of five cents a gallon on rectified spirits imposed by the Sen- ate also has been knocked out and there will be no tax on gasoline. The House conferees thus won as to the beer tax and the proposed tax on rectified spirits* The Senate conferees sco red as to gasoline. The House had voted to tax gasoline and the Senate knocked it out. In nearly every other instance the Senate conferees had their way and retained their amendments in the bill.. :•• •-• -/....\..'' ..' The proposed wine tax, as the Sen- ate wrote it after much delay and conferences between the California wine producers and the Ohio wine growers whose interests conflicted, remained in the bill. The tax on bank surplus .and cash will be $1 for each $1,000 of capital, surplus and undivided profits, instead of $2 as the House bad fixed it. .ilb&2»„£:-\ BUFFALO 1 , N. Y., Oct. 8, 1914/ Constituitioual Convention Com.:— A letter from the \Buffalo mem- bers, of the .non-partisan committee of 200 wonjien of the state of New York, working to secure representation of women at the constitutional conven- tion\ asks meto co operate in a de- termined! effort to have women dele- gates elected in November. • , The letter goes on to say that \All women interested in the broad ques- tions of human Welfare, recognize the necessity, for women's participation in reconstructing the provisions of the constitution affecting the family, the home, the children, the working women, the state's care of dependents and delinquents.\ I am \interested in all questions of humjan welfare,''but I do not recognige the necessity for women's particip&tingr in reconstructing the provisions of the constitution .and I firmly believe that the deteribratott of the family, the home, the children, the working wofyeh* and 6t all^ men Will follow the entrance of woitten into politics. y It is because of this firm belief that I shall use eyery influence that I may possess |o preyent^the election of jatty woman delegate to the constitutional oonventlojiv -.

(Signed) MAKIA M, LOY^, the question of prohibition, a que* tion almost as large and as vital as woman suffrage. The privilege of casting a ballot Is not synonymous with belief in pro- hibition. If only those people were' entitled to vote who believed in pro- hibition and who were working to further the cause of prohibition in the city of Geneva and State of New York, a large proportion of those vvho have registered could not vote. If there is still a question as to whether the woman's vote advances or retards the cause of prohibition, there is, I believe, no question as tb •which sex makes use of the saloons in cities.and villages where, prohibi- tion does not exist. Mr. Toal of Ardmore, Pa., tells us that only a small per cent; of the wo- men of Chicago registered in Sep- tember; therefore, the large per <|ent. who did not register are not as well represented as they would be by their own husbands, fathers, sons and brothers. We \mere women\ do not quite understand this reasoning, but it doubtless shows a wide knowl- edge on the part of Mr. Teal of Ard- more, Pa., of conditions in Chicago, where, perhaps, eyery woman has some father, husband or brother to represent her (Why is ip w.e do not hear of men being represented by their fathers, brothers and cousjns ?) but it shows yery little knowledge of actual conditions in Geneva and hun- dreds of small towns in the State of New York, where the.women far out- number the men: 1 To be specific, the block in which I live, Hamilton St., between Main and Pulteney, there are living twelve widows and eight unmarried women of a voting age. The mujirity of these women are without fathers, brothers or'husbands to represent them at the polls. I judge from the tone of Mr. Toal's remarks that these women haye no right to a hearing because there are no men in their' families. But he makes no suggestion that women of this sort, the father- less and the widows, should have their name removed from the tax roll. But let* us not confuse the issues. The question of prohibition or license. It is not the question of whether she believes in a high protective tariff or free trade. It is* the question of ex- tending to women the same privilege which men 'have had in this state .since 1821,. the privelege of express- ing their opinions on all these ques- tions in the quietest and most unoJ>t. u- sive way yet devised. Wheti this question comes to be voted ori in Geneva in 1915, we are thankful that it is the men of Geneva, those who know the Women of Ge- neva and the things they have stood for,, and nob Mr. Edward Toal.,of Ardmore, P&.,who,are tosay whether the women of Geneva'are to share this privilege.
