When It Is considered that a man's

times it is not treated as well as a

The Infrequency of accident on the

There are , traits of the Japanese

work the same harm as though he

America would not like to see trou
ble of a serious nature grow out of
tbo differences between tlie president ,
the house and the senate , but the lat-
lor has taken the initiative in assert
ing that it will not consider a meas
ure on its merits in advance and the
executive and the house are entitled
to assort themselves In a manner as
decidedly imperialistic as the senate ,
without a doubt. The people glvo the
president and the house credit with
being desirous of forwarding the best
interests of the country while they
withhold such credit from the senate
and are Inclined lo believe that per
sonal interests or corporate influence
are allowed to blind the eyes of the
senators. It is to bo hoped that the
matter will bo cleared away and the
three branches of the government
working In harmony before the pres
ent session of congress conies to an
end. There U a large amount of
work that should bo transacted in the
next three weeks , and an early agree
ment on' legislation that will bo adopt
ed Is desirable. The freight rate mat
ter Is now up to the senate and Its
early action will clear the way for
olher imporlant measures and place
the several dopartmenls in harmony.
The stale would probably not ob
ject If the legislators would average
up the value of the railway passes to
them and raise the salaries of all of
ficials accordingly. It would seem
much better that the officials should
bo entirely In the pay of the state and
not partially in the pay of the rail
roads. The newspaper man who re
ceives transportation is expected to
glvo valte received , also the railroad
employe , and the state officer is prob
ably not an exemption. The officials
may think that the vote at the last
election is in support of their main-
'talnlng their passes , but there were
other and more weighty questions at
stake last November , and if it comes
to a showdown whether or not the
puoplo approve of tholr officials ac
cepting thcso favors from the rail
roads with whom they nro expected
to deal exactly as they would with
any other corporation or with Indi
vidual * It would probably he * found
that the majority of the republicans
aH well an fiiHlonlHtu would prefer
that the paHtohoardu Hhould not he
accepted and used. The present leg-
iHlalure might do far worno than
adopting a law prohibiting the accept
ance of PIIHHCH ,
It heghm to look as though Uncle
Sam WIIH about lo take cognizance of
the facl that John Rockefeller Is attempting -
tempting to do things to Kansas that
should not bo done by any corporation
having a soul , and the movement of
the house of representatives to In-
qulro Into the difference , between th"
coat of crude and refined OH ! ! In Hint
state and the difference In prlcon
there and In other slales , Is evidence
llmt there is an Intention lo find out
wbolher or not there Is any forcing
business being carried on by the
Standard Oil king. There Is more
than a suspicion that the oil Interests
are operating in restraint of trade
and competition very decidedly In
the Sunflower state and there Is a
chance that It may bo caught red-
handed In the act and evidence ad
duced that will go a long ways toward
proving the Standard company a dan
gerous trust In the eyes of the laws
of the country. The people know that
the Standard Oil people and other
corporations employ methods of
squeezing out competition and then
running the price of their products up
out of reason and they only hope that
the government may bo able to provo
It and make It possible for competi
tion lo live In a counlry reputed to
be free. The Kansas situation offers
a splendid field In which to prove that
the government meaim business in its
attitude opposing monopolies. The
resolution of Iho house calling tbo at
lenlion of the department of com
merce and labor to the Kansas sUua
tion should develop some results.
