With the fall of 1'ort Arthur and the recall of ( ho Bccond 1'aclllc squadron the main point of Interest In the war Is concentrated about the armies at Mukden , unless the Japanese choose to take n swing at Vladivostok , In which event the Interest would again lie divided about ns It was before the fall of Port Arthur. In either event the Japu would scorn to liavo a , ma- torlal advantage anil the Moscovltos will bo compelled to do some of the fiercest fighting they have yet done to change the nlttmtlon In any largo de gree. Colorado , having started In ( ho strenuous life , there la no tolling whore Its trouble will ontl. Politics out there Is developing Into n quality that could scarcely bo exceeded on the Manchurlan frontier , and there Is no tolling where the next bomb will bo exploded. With the two candidates for governor and tholr friends at swords' points , comes now the house and the senate and Indulges In n game or war that Is of the lurid quality. It Is nbout time that the cow boys and the ranchers of the entire west called nt Denver and give the people of that city a. proper example of gentlemanly conduct. Doth houses of the legislature have adjourned until Tuesday , prosum- bly to give the members n chance to take off tholr coats , mnlBten tholr hands and got ready for the real work of ( ho session which Is expected ( o bo concluded at the earliest possible mo ment. They have left the now stao ( officers In charge , duly sworn and qualified , so ( hat the affairs of the com monwealth will receive nil the atten tion they require during ( ho brief leg islative holiday. In the meantime the legislators will consult with the leaders In ( holr dlsrlcs ( and bo prepared - pared ( o act according to the wishes of the people on the various matters that arc to bo brought to tholr atten tion , as Indicated by the governor's message and the first Influx of bills and suggestions. Evidences are that ( ho railroads nro seeking ( o discredit Secretary of 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 directing n reform In that particular. 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 ? There is no longer a chance for doubt that the national administration means business when It comes to cor recting the abuses of some of the trusts and the charge made by Candi date Parker at the close of the cam paign Is being vigorously and satis factorily answered ns far as the people ple are concerned. It Is a matter of regret ( hat Prosldont KooHovelt can not ho choHOti to Biicceod himself after the present lorm of olllco IIHB oxplrod. Still , It IH hoped and hullovod that a candidate will ho developed who will titep In and ronllnuo ( ho work on the llnoH laid down by the president. Na turally the largo IniHtH and corpora tions will endeavor to wo that the next choice for president IH favorable to their way of thinking and the poo- pi o will need to bo awalto to tholr In- terewtH If thu proHont program IH to bo continued and they Hliould curly ho on the lookout for Iho man who will Hiiccuuil ProHldont Room-volt. The latent anil ono of the best ovl- doncoH that Iho admlnlHlratlon IH pro ceeding vlgoroiiHly agaliiHt the trimts IH the brief tiled by Attorney General Moody In the beef trust case. This brlof recites positively : "That there IH a conspiracy to control the market of the nation for fresh meats ; that It doeH control It , ami that Its control IH morclloHH and oppressive , are facts known of all men. " The HiiHHlutiH In front of Mukden obHorved tholr ChrlHlmiiH by tiring some hot Hhot Into the position of the JapanoHo. This might have piovon n merry diversion for the HuHslanH on their holiday hut It could liiudly have meant a happy holiday feeling for tholr opponents. 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 ing a proposal of peace from the llttlo 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. When the developments and the sensations ccaso to appear In the Col orado election cases It will bo time for Kentucky , Texas or South Carolina lina to crcato some sort of an excite ment to divert the attention of the people. Meanwhile the other fairly 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 that can well bo illgcstcd nt once by 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 wife beaters in the District of Colum bia. It Is prescribed that the whip ping shall bo done privately by the chief of police In the presence of the city physician only. If congress pass es the bill and It becomes n law an example will bo sot the state legisla tures that might bo followed In order to deal appropriately and effectively with a certain class of citizens that are known to nearly every community and for whoso punishment there Is no adequate and fitting provision in the majority of the statutes. If such n law is good for the district of Col umbia , having the approval of the president , It Is assuredly good for the various states , and Nebraska should not bo the last to Incorporate it In its statutes. There Is every reason to believe that the coming yenr will bo ono of un usual prosperity and development In Norfolk. The city Is not overgrown by any manner of means and will stand a much greater expansion be fore It can bo considered as swelling beyond what will bo justified by the environments of the town , the fertil ity of the territory surrounding and jtho railway advantages which feed out and In from a prosperous section filled with growing towns and com munities. Norfolk has to offer as an Inducement for the location hero of some Important manufacturing Indus try a flno building located on n fertile slto well adapted for carrying on some Important Industry. With this ns a starter thcro should bo no difficulty in Inducing otlicr industries to locate hero and with the vigor that Is being shown by the commercial club favora ble attention to the desirability of the city as a center of north Nebraska progress will bo attracted. Norfolk cannot help but continue the remark. able growth that It has nliown during the past iiovoral yoara and Its people have conlldenco In an exceedingly bright future for the town. The Japanese are finding that a number of soldiers and oIllcorH whom they were mippoHod to have killed are now on tholr hands with the turning over of Port Arthur and numbers of thorn prefer rather to ho prlwonorH of war than to return to ItiiBHla with the poHHlblllty ( hut they will ho favored with a court martial. If the republican leglHlaturo of No- hniHka carries through the present program and continues an It IIIIH started out at Lincoln there Is no doubt hut that It will make many ad ditional republican votes In the state. The work thus far has been very pret ty and the program for the balance of the soHRlon seems subject to approval. With ( ho making of Port Arthur a base for the operation of the Japan ese fleet It scorns probable that Iho llttlo brown men will hereafter exor cise an Influence In Manchuria and the far east In the future , which will bo agiecahlo to a largo number of the leading nations of the world. Japan ese Influence IIIIH boon for good wher ever It has been manifest and It is to ho desired that they bo given a gen erous hold in the region influenced from Port Arthur. The Fremont Tribune has Ismiod an edition devoted to the Improvements made In that city and Dodge county during the past year , that shows a very creditable achievement. The edi tion consists of twenty-four pages and the Improvements for the county show n grand total of ? SO 1,427. Including many handsome residences , improve ments to business properties , side walks , etc. , which make a very worthy showing for the development of the city and country. 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 advance of the readers of nny other papers that como to this city. Madi son Star-Mail. 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 holders. 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 moment.
