the Navy Morton with the people and
the administration , It Is alleged that
one of the largest givers of rebates
Is the Santa Fo road of which Mr.
Morton was formerly vlco president
and that ho know of the giving of
these rebates and the policy had his
sanction. Mr. Morton has paid slight
heed to the vicious attacks and It Is
said that President Roosevelt has giv
en assurances that they have not
harmed him In the estimation of the
executive. It Is probable that Secre
tary Morton and the president fully
understand each other , and Mr. Mor
ton having had experience In the re
bate matter , Is ono of the best advis
ors on the president's proposed re
form that It has been possible for the
executive to secure. If It takes n thief
to catch n thief it Is possible that n
railroad man with experience In the
rebate matter will bo a power toward

If Mr. Morton is to bo blamed for his
attitude what can the other railroad
men think of President J. J. Hill who
has spoken favorably to President
Roosevelt's plan of reform ?

Japan Is too busy lighting to take
tlmo for the forming of a request to
her enemy as to whether or not peace
is desired. The Japs are In a fair way
of whipping Uussla Into making a
cry of "enough" without pleading for
a cessation of hostilities and It IH
probable that the war will ho long and
strenuous If Russia Insists on receiv

brown men.
Mr. Miller , representing the pack
ers In the famous hoof trust case ad
mits that there Is and has boon an
"understanding" between the various
packers , but naturally takes excep
tion to the allegation that this "un
derstanding" la In violation of the
anti-trust laws. The people , however ,
arc with the attorney general In be
lieving that there are and have been
violations of the law and they and the
supreme court will undoubtedly re
quire some positive proof before they
are otherwise convinced.

reliable sources of similar news nro
taking n well deserved rest. It la
really commendable on their part to
refrain from inflicting the people fur
ther. The Colorado situation Is nil

the readers of sensational political
news. There la danger , however , that
Colorado Is holding the fort overtime ,
and the people there will finally be
disgusted and throw the whole state
out of the union.
Congressman Adams of Pennsyl
vania has Introduced In congress a
bill establishing the whipping post for

city physician only. If congress pass

The Fremont Tribune has Ismiod an

during the past year , that shows a
very creditable achievement. The edi

It was the Norfolk Daily News that
brought the first account of the fall
of Port Arthur. Wild excitement pre
vailed on Monday afternoon when a
special edition , six hours ahead of the
Omaha papers , under Brother W. N.
Huso's bold headlines , gave in detail
the surrender of the long besieged
Russian stronghold to the Japanese
forces. It may not be out of place to
here state , that the readers of The
Norfolk Dally News are dnily fur
nished with what Is known as a skel
etonized report of the Associated
Press from nlno to fourteen hours In

The republican legislature of Colorado
rado has arrived at a sensible conclu
sion In taking the determination to
scat the democratic nominee for gov
ernor , Alva Adams , who apparently
had a largo majority over the present
republican governor and candidate
for ro-electlon , John II. Peabody. The
plurality of the former on canvass of
the vote was found to bo 9,771 and
though many of these votes may have
boon fraudulent , It is evident that the
desire of the people of the state was
for a change In the executive office
and it has been determined by the re
publicans that if there Is to bo a con
test It will bo Instituted by ex-Govern
or Peabody and not by Governor Ad
ams. This decision should add
strength to the republican cause In
Colorado and this strength should be
greater according to the amount of
fraud that was used In the election
of Adams.
John Temple Graves of Atlanta , Ga. ,
is authority for the statement that
the people of the south in common
with the people of the north and west
are beginning to like President
Roosevelt most cordially. The Reese
velt way should appeal particularly to
the people of the south If their pre
judices to anything northern and re
publican can bo subordinated to fair
ness. The popular northern concep
tion of the southern gentleman is
that ho Is deep In his heart an admirer
of any nature like that of Roosevelt's
and before the end of the present term
It may bo expected that Mr. Roosevelt
will bo the idol of that section as in
the balance of the country. The
changed sentiment Is coming rather
late to benefit Mr. Roosevelt as ho
has determined not to again become
a candidate for the office , but with the
acknowledgement that the south ad
mired McKlnley and thought that
President Roosevelt vns about right ,
there Is ovcry reason to hope that In
the future the southern people will
not turn an absolutely deaf ear to the
qualifications of n candidate for the
presidency merely because ho hap
pens to affiliate with the republican
party. The statement of Mr. Graves
might bo taken to indicate that other
southern states are getting ready to
follow Missouri over the fence into
the republican pasture. A great deal
now depends on the administration ,
state and national , whether the pee
ple of MIsHoiirl are to bo satisfied
with their political change.
The citizens of Lincoln nro con
vinced ( hat they are needing Homo-
thing new In the street railway line
and have gone ahead to form an Inde
pendent company for the building of
a line In competition with the pros-
out company. Lincoln may need bet
tor car facllltloH than It Is now re
ceiving , but what Norfolk needs IH
an original line to care for the pub
lic. Norfolk assuredly needs one line
IIH much as Lincoln needs two and the
opportunity IH offered for Norfolk to
Bocuro the needed convenience , the
meeting of the commercial club called
for Friday night being an ImiiorUint
step In the right direction. If the
bimlnoHH men and other progressive
citizens Interested take the proper ac
tion through the commercial club
there IH no question but that before
another summer Norfolk will have a
street railway line In operation to the
great convenience of a great number
of people and the profit of the stock
A mooting of the Norfolk commer
cial club has been called for Friday
evening to consider a street railway
proposition , and that thcro should bo
a large attendance and earnest con
sideration of the matter Is a foregone
conclusion. Perhaps no city of Its
size In the sato is more greatly in
need of a street railway system than
is Norfolk. It is important that a
menus of rapid and comfortable con
veyance ho provided between the
widely separated portions of the city.
There la already a largo amount of
business transacted between the city
proper and South Norfolk where are
located the principal depot of the
Northwestern , the round house and
the machine shops , but this business
would bo much larger If there was a
comfortable street railway with sched
ule of arrivals and departures of the
cars from given points on its route.
The experiment of connecting Nor
folk and South Norfolk was tried atone
ono tlmo , but the motive power was
the primitive horse and the rolling
stock was allowed to deteriorate until
the people found greater comfort and
almost ns rapid locomotion in walking
between the two points. The line was
built during the boom period and did
a very good business for some time.
But following the boom there was a
collapse. Crop failures and hard
times generally hit the street railway
as well as every other line of business
and finally the cars were abandoned
and the track torn up. Since then the
main city has Improved Immensely
and South Norfolk has kept pace with
the growth , and both are now on a
solid prosperous basis. It Is not reasonable -
sonablo to suppose that a street rail
way would pay during the period of
depression and especially a dilapidat
ed railway system such as the Nor
folk line had become , but other enter
prises that failed at that tlmo have
been made to pay well and It is just
ns reasonable to suppose that a street
railway system would pay now where
there was failure before. Then , too ,
In the first Instance a route was chos
en that was not popular , and It is
possible to now select a route that
would bo more advantageous , gov
erned by the experience of the past.
That a street railway can now be made
to pay a handsome return on the in
vestment Is not doubted by those who
have given the matter consideration
and It Is to bo hoped that the commer
cial club will not only intelligently
consider the present proposition , but
that it will take a step that will Insure
the building of the lino. Outside of
the fact that a street railway can be
made to profit those holding the stock ,
are the advantages to bo derived by
the business interests of the city In
Increased patronage while there is a
possibility of developing and cement
ing the social relations between the
city proper and South Norfolk that
cannot fall to bo of advantage in many
ways. Norfolk needs a street railway
line and now Is the opportune tlmo
to inaugurate the movement so thai
the work of construction may bo com
mcnced with the opening of spring
and completed at the earliest possible
