The railroad ofllclals of the northern
lines are beginning to assort early
that the strength of the telegraphers'

those who have had experience with
other strikes.

The forestry service of the depart
ment of agriculture has Issued a bill
letln giving the terms employed It
logging and lumbering calculated to
aid "tonderfeet" who may become h
any way associated with those twin li
dustrlcs. The workers , like- the print
ers or any other trade , apply peculla
terms to implements and transaction
which to the uninformed sound like
Greek , and It Is sometimes awkward
not to bo able to understand what they
are talking about.
The Commoner has already forgot
ten that It was "supporting Roosovolt"
at the recent election In the First con-
gresslonal district and devotes Its
front page last week to a caricature ol
the president that Is Insulting In the
J extreme and will probably bo resented
by the readers of the paper who were
convinced that they wore supporting
the president by voting for the demo
cratic candidate for congress. For
tunately there wore not enough con
vinced to defeat the man who will give
Mr. HooHovelt real support ,
Now Orleans has called upon Uncle
Ham to take a hand at an attempt to
curb the scourge of yellow fever with
which the city Is allllcted and the good
old gentleman through his agent , The-
( idoro Roosevelt , promptly signified
his willingness to do all In his power
to curb the pest. Surgeon General \Vy-
man has been Instructed to put the
forces under his command at work ,
and If there Is any human agency that
can servo to uproot the ovll It may bo
expected that the government will put
It to work In favor of the fever rid
den city.
The rush for lands nt Grand Junc

In thi'.l section of the connf" . When
the iiovornmont has something good
to offer , like Nebraska or Prutli n.i-
kola land , there Is no chance for the
homesteads to go begging. Them maybe
bo n day In thu future when the i.'tah
Intuit ! will bo In demand , but the seek
ers for homes are not yet anxious to
take the risk.
At the rate the state is uncovering
property from which to draw a share
of the expense of government and nt
the levy made by the board of equali
zation , there will bo several hundred
thousand dollars moro on which to do
business than It has ever before had ,
and besides there will bo a nlco heal
thy sum to apply against the Indebted
ness of the commonwealth. The now
revenue law Is putting In some proper
licks In favor of catching up with the
slate while the tax payers can afford
It and the action will bo appreciated
by all good citizens.
The strike Is once moro on and two
great railroad systems are disabled ,
tons of fruit and vegetables are rot
ting In the cars on the tracks , while
commission merchants and producers
are suffering loss and would-bo con
sumers are seriously Inconvenienced ,
all because of a disagreement between
telegraph operators and their employ
ers. Of all modern Industrial meth
ods the strike accomplishes least and
Injures the most Innocent people. So
ciety will have to rise In Its dignity
and demand that arbitration at the
hands of a disinterested court , whoso
decision shall bo binding , bo compul
sory as a last resort in those wran
gles between labor and capital.

o the campaign of 190S , however , and
mny things are likely to happen. It
s pleasant In the meantime to think
hat the country has men like EHhu

The populists have decided to meet
n Lincoln OH the same day that the
lemopralS do , whether members of
hat party want them or not , and have
set September 20 as the date for their
convention. This Is taken by the
lolltlcans to moan ft bid for another
whirl at fusion , but there Is said to
JO a question as to whether the demo
crats want to bo a party to such a
deal or not. The populists will , prob
ably , bo asked for a showing of
strength to prove that they bavo any
thing worth combining with loft out
of the former fusion campaign , and
there Is a conviction on the part of
some that they will bo unable to
show anything that the democrats
might deslro. The republicans will
probably wish the plan to carry that
will muster the greatest strength for
the opposition , as they will deslro an
Indication that they are making a
light after the campaign Is open. A
walk-away would bo no fun , and would
not call forth the antagonism that
would muster the party strength.
Two of the most Important meetings
to the west to bo held at the Ixnvls
and Clark exposition nro the congress
of the National Irrigation association
and the Trans-Mlsslsslppi commercial
congress. The latter is to bo held
August 1 Gto 10. and the former Aug
ust 21 to 21. Each association basac
compllshed much for the west and wll
continue Its line of development as
long as they receive the support o
the people Interested. The Irrigation
Ists now have a fund of thirty million !
for the advancement of the work am

The , commercial congress Is afl Im

tory to American trade and Invites the

Every state of the great west should

Indigestion Cured.
There Is no case of Indigestion , dys
pepsia or stomach trouble that will
not yield to the digestive and strength
ening Influence of Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure. This remedy takes the strain
off the stomach by digesting what you
eat and allowing It to rest until It
grows strong again. Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure affords quick and permanent re
lief from Indigestion and all stomach
troubles , builds up the system and so
purifies that dlsoaso can not attack
and gain a foothold as when In a
weakened condition. The constantly
Increasing use of Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure by physicians of hospital and
general practice of Itself tolls how
this wonderful modern dlscovory has
proven to bo the greatest dlgestant for
the alleviation of a suffering human
ity. . Its many cures of both children
and adulta grows larger day by day.

The attempt that Is being made to
oust Secretary Wilson from the agri
cultural department will not bo suc
cessful , nor ought It to bo. Everyone
regrets the grafting that has boon
done , no one as rmich as Mr. Wilson ,
and this evidenced by his prompt and
energetic determination to ferrlt out
the rascals and got good men In their
places. No man has yet done so much
for agricultural Interests In the cab
inet as Secretary James Wilson of
Iowa. Ho has given practical results
from his work , lias always been a
high minded , efficient gentleman and
his country will continue to honor and
esteem him. Theodore Roosevelt can
well afford to stand by and sustain a
clean , able man , who Is eagerly using
the broom to sweep out cob-webs
which unfortunately got Into his de
partment , and ho can bo depended
upon to do It. The country wants
graft and dishonesty exposed but it
does not deslro that men of ability and
Integrity bo set aside because of mere
mistakes In their judgment of certain
men. Wilson will stay.

Lawrence Bruner has again taken a
stand In favor of the song birds of
Nebraska In a bulletin recently Issued
from the university. To force his ar
gument homo ho reasserts that a loss
of $100,000,000 a year Is sustained by
fanners and gardeners through Insect
ravages In the United States and Can
ada. Allowing twenty-five Insects a
day as the average diet for each Indi
vidual bird Mr. Bruner places the re
quirements of the birds of the state
per day at 1,875,000.000 Insects , esti
mating ono and ono half birds to the
acre , which would seem low enough.
The number of Insects to fill a bushel
basket Is estimated to bo 120,000 , and
therefore It would require 15,025 bush
els to feed the birds a single day or
2,313,750 bushels for a season of 150
days. These estimates are considered
low when Individual birds have been
known to destroy from 100 to 500 In
sects and vast numbers of Insect eggs.
To have all these myriads of Insects
turned loose against the crops Is what
It would mean to have the birds killed
off , and an Increase to three or four
birds to the aero would mean exactly
opposite conditions. It would seem
that no stronger argument would bo
needed to prevent boys , amateurs and
hunters of birds for their feathers ,
from killing the little songsters.
