mers and taxpayers in general,
when they come to pay their taxes
this year, will very forcibly see the
fore-e of argument as the Telegram
has been picturing it to them under
the robber revenue law of this state.
Soon after this law was enacted, a
prominent railroad man said to us
that "the farmers of tlie state shouid
pav the taxes, that the corporations
had paid the-m lougenough." Tl:e
man seemed to us to be in earnest
in what he was saying, and we had
reason to understand that he was
speaking the truth. There is no
need of roaring about this. The
remedy is to send men to the next
legislature who are pledged to re
peal this law and to enact some
thing that will hit all alike, and

Tin: reports from the foot hall

A Washington mind reader sees
the election of Secretary Shaw to
the presidency in 1908, which leads
the Atlanta Consttution to remark
that it was Secretary Shaw's mind
that the forecaster was reading.
It is not difficult to observe that
the president will have a live con
gress upon his hands in a few days,
and that he will have to meet some
very live questions in a live way.
Ir President Roosevelt gets what
lie wants in the w ay of railroad leg
islation, he will have to depend up
on friendly democrats to help him
pull the measure through.
Sknator Fokakkk says "rail
road regulation is a democratic
measure." We are glad it is, and
also glad it is recognized as such by
high republican authority.
Lii-k is what we make it. Which
hardly applies to the Equitable, the
Mutual and the New York in these
davs of revelation.
Wi: iii'.ak mentioned frequently
that Senator Uurkett is "with the
president" in the matter of the
railroad rate law proposed. It
may be so, but we'll bet that the
cold sweat stands out all over the
senator everytinte he thinks of that
subject coming to a vote.
Tin: railroads have by adroit rep
resentations coerced thousands of
employes to sign a petition to Con
gress protesting against action tend
ing to regulate rates. They claim
the companies employing them will
reduce the wages of the men in or
der to meet any threatened short
age of receipts that might result
from hostile legislation.

Tin-: Aurora Sun says that since
the decision of the supreme court in
refusing Mrs. Lillie a rehearing, her
friends have begun a campaign in
earnest in her behalf. A communi
cation from Lincoln to one of the
state papers says that the imprison
ed woman has made a large number
of friends during her stay at the
penitentiary. These believe in her
innocence. Chief among them is
Mrs. A. I). P.eemer, matron in
charge of the woman's ward of the
state prison. The details of the
campaign in behalf of Mrs. Lillie is
kept secret. It is known that a
number of the delegates to the na
tional prison congress took an inter
est in the matter. The leaders in
the club federation of the state are
at work. Friends of Mrs. Lillie are
working on a clew discovered after
she was committed to prison. It
is now known that a personal
enemy of Harvey Lillie disposed of
his property and disappeared short
ly after the murder. Now he can
not be found. The identity of the
fugitive is known only to Mrs.
Lillie and her closest advisers.
Tariff Reform Coining. !
(lovernor Cununings of Iowa, is!
a staunch republican, but he fore-j
sees thus early that tariff reform is I
coming and is undertaking the al- i
most hopeless task of impressing the
republican leaders with the import- j
ance of the issue. At the recent !
banquet of the I'.cojioniic Club of j
Iioston, he wisely said: j
"The man who still holds that I
our manufacturers need any consid
erable protection in order to enable
them to compete successfully in
their own markets with foreign pro

ducts at a fair profit in other coun
tries in open competition with all
the manufacturers of the earth, has
surrendered his good sense to his
idolatry at the shrine of that miser
able maxim filched from the lang
uage of the great American ginne.

Tin-: latest reports of the crop in
Nebraska arc to the effect that we

A ;)i deal of the present crn-j
fusion arises from a quibbling; (orj
le.tral) use of terms. The difficulty
lies m our various applications ot
the words "rebate" and '"discrimi
nation.'' as in politics it lies in the
use of the word "bribery." What
is a rebate? Strictly speaking;, a
rebate is a sum of money secretly
paid back by a railroad company to
a favored shipper as a refund upon
his freight rate. And in this nar
row sense rebating is undoubtedly
much less common than formerlv.
