THE GREAT ISSUE
AFRAID OF TRICKERY
PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW MORI
OF ALDRICH'S FINANCIAL
"National Reserve Association" i
Cloak for National Bank ? Whole
Truth of the Matter Must Be
Many a good dinner has been eat
en In New York and elsewhere , inci
dentally to discuss Mr. Nelson W. Al
drlch's new financial plan. Every
thing on the bills of fare has beei
plain enough except the name of th (
dish which Mr. Aldrich himself ha ;
provided. He calls it a National Re
serve association. He emphatically
denies that it is a Central bank or i
bank of the United States.
The delicacy became popular a
financial banquets without delay , but
having a desire to oblige his friends
the great chef who first prepared ii
has encouraged other good-livers tt
suggest improvements This weight }
matter has been in progress for some
time , and now whenever men of monej
break bread with Mr .Aldrich various al
leged improvements are either adopt
ed. or rejected. So far as we have ob
served , however , nobody , even at the
foot of the table , has ventured tc
suggest that the thing he called bj
Its right name.
Some plain Americans have notec
the fact that on the menu cards of oui
up-to-date hotels very homely articles
ot diet are often hidden behinc
strange French or Italian phrases
There is reason to believe that if the
plain people of the United States are
ever to look with favor upon Mr
Aldrich's. triumph of cookery he will
have to tell them exactly what it is
They have a right to know anyway
but the Pure-Food law can be in
voked If necessary.
A great deal is to be said in favoi
of a Central bank. That such an In
stitution has many' advantages is
proved by the experience of other na
tions. Correctly managed , it pro
tecls credit , regulates circulation and
prevents or minimizes panics. Bad
ly managed , it may become corrupt ,
partial and tyrannous. In the control
of financial politicians and political
financiers it may arbitrarily dominate
commerce and Industry even govern
ment itself for selfish ends. We
have , had Central banks of the last de
scrlption. We have never had one oi
It is morally certain that no Cen
tral bank will ever be established In
this country under a misleading title ,
Historical , political and personal preju
dices against such an institution are
very strong. They can be removed
only by facts and argument presented
with the utmost candor. A good way
to begin this movement would be by
an honest avowal of its object. New

Why Lower Duty on V/ool ?
Wool growing is an important in
dustry In this country only in those
states or territories where it would
flourish without any tariff , and It has
steadily receded in spite of the tariff
from the agricultural states. Among
documents on this subject is a report
on sheep and wool made about 15
years ago , by Mr. Dodge , who was
for many years statistician of the De
partment of Agriculture , and who is
as stiff a protectionist as any man
we know of.
The duty will have to be raised a
great deal more to make it profitable
to grow wool in the agricultural states
and If the price were much raised
the consumption would fall off and the
wool men would be no better off than
they are now. But there is money In
raising sheep for mutton , as there is
In raising steers for beef , though
steers cannot be shorn annually , and
for mutton considerable quantities of
sheep will be grown , their wool be
ing a by-product of the meat supply.
In portions of the country which are
not well adopted to agriculture sheep
will be raised whether there be a
on wool or not
PRESIDENT AS A POLITICO
Cabinet Appointments Seem to Shov

Admirers of Mr. Taft have said h <
"is no politician. "
One of his pet projects has beer
to secure Republican aid In th <
south. Mr. Dickinson , a Tennessee
Democrat , was appointed secretarj
of war. Tennessee , so long hope anc
pride of the southern Democracy , no\\
has a Republican governor , and Luke
Lea is a senator from the state.
Tennessee Republicans are certait
to send a Taft delegation to the Re
publican National convention.
So far , so good in connection witl
Mr. Taft's plans In that section.
Now support } s needed in New Yorli
for the Taft wing of the Republican
Mr. Dickinson steps down. Mr
Stimson has been regarded as a rep
resentative of the Roosevelt faction
He-was Roosevelt's candidate for the
governorship. Mr. Taft secures Stim
son's allegiance and that of Stimson's
friends by giving the defeated guber
natorial candidate a place in the cab

Oliver's Inconsistent Consistency.
The reasons Senator Oliver of Penn
sylvania gives for opposing the pulp
and paper provision of the Canadian
agreement are like the weapon em
ployed by the butcher in a fight , who
grabbed the first thing he could get
his hands on , which , in the case of the
butcher , was a sausage.
Mr. Oliver points out that under the
provisions of the agreement only pulp
taken from private Canadian lands
and paper made from such pulp would
be admitted free because the agree
ment retains the duty on these arti
cles when they are subjected to a
Canadian export duty , and the crown
lands of the provinces are subjected
to such a duty.
The senator , therefore , puts himself
In the attitude of objecting to free
pulp and paper because it would not
be so free as it should be when , as
a matter of fact he does not want It
to be free at all. The probability
would be that with the proposed dis
crimination against the Canadian ex
port duty , that duty would be removed
from the crown lands under the oper
ation of the pending agreement.
But that Is just what the paper
trust does not want , and Senator Oli
ver knows it. Kansas City Star.
Lower Tariff Is the Demand.
The question for congress and we
commend it specially to the progres
sive Republicans Is whether it will
legislate in the Interest of the people
ple , or In the interest of those who
insist on their indefeasible right to
tax the people. The choice is one that
will have to be made some day , and it
might as well be made now. When
Jute goes on the free list , as we trust
It will , the men who make it will be
surprised and pained to find that they
are not ruined. The Democratic free
list , by all means , ought to be adopt
ed. The people voted for a lower tar
iff , and they ought to have it , and
have it promptly. The men who stand
In the way of their getting It will
have much to answer for. As for the
Republicans , we have only to say that
they ought to be glad , after all this
time , to have the chance to redeem
In part the pledges made by their
party In 1908.
Something of a Contrast.
The Democratic house of representa
tives is doing things. That body has
made the following record in a little
more than a month :
Passed the "farmers' free list" bill.
Cut off a lot of useless offices , result
ing in saving about $200,000 a year.
Approved the Canadian reciprocity
Adopted resolution In favor of pop
ular elections of United States sena
Passed the apportionment bill.
Passed the measure to provide .for
publicity of campaign expenses.
Meantime the Republican senate has
fooled away its time in a wrangle over
assignment of committee places and
begun plans for "hearings" on the
reciprocity matter !
ALL OVER NEBRASL
Cost of Growing Wheat.
Statistics indicating the profit tha
can be made on the average farm i
Nebraska upon the wheat yield , hav
been prepared by Louis V. Guye i
connection with an estimate on th
present crop conditions. Mr. Guye i
deputy state labor commissioner.
"The cost on an average of produc
ing wheat is shown by the followlni
statistics. " He said :
"Cost of preparing ground per acre
$1.48 ; seed , $1.28 ; planting , 44 cents
harvesting , $1.22 ; preparing for mar
ket , $1.39 ; miscellaneous , includini
wear and tear to machinery , fertiliz
ing , etc. , 58 cents ; land rent , or in
terest on land values , $3.70 , makinj
a total cost per acre of $10.08 , this
including the pay for labor , seed , rent
interest , wear and tear on machinery
"The average yield Mras 18 % bush
els per acre , with an average marke
price of 88 cents per bushel , or $16.2 !
per acre , less the cost of production
$10.08 , leaving a net profit of $6.21
per acre , and this after all the ex
penses have been paid , which repre
sents the actual dividends on the in
vestments in wheat growing.
"The crop forecast , as shown bj
the reports to hand , are as follows :
"The May estimate of winter wheat
in acreage , is approximately 5 pel
cent greater than that of 1910 , and J
per cent less than the acreage sowi
last fall. This is a general average
as shown for the last five years. The
indicated yield is somewhat less thai
the May estimate of the last five years
owing to the backward dry , cole
"Rye shows the same average it
acreage and yield as that indicated
by winter wheat.
"The average condition of the haj
crop shows a slight decrease , especial
ly in the western portion , due to the
lateness of the season. "
