Senator Hughes was discussing the
proposed divorce law with a group of
friends in the Meridian hotel lobby
last Sunday. All the members of the
group were married men except the
Senator, who is known to be an old
bachelor. The senator was strangely
silent during the discussion but seem
ed to be deeply interested. When
nearly every phase of the question
had been discussed he finally said
"Gentlemen, I am afraid I am not
very well qualified to vote on that
question." Mr. Hughes went to Nor
folk with a committee the last of the
week to investigate the condition of
the Norfolk asylum. He finds the
work of legislation very fascinating,
especially the committee work. And
few men in the senate are equipped
to do more effective work in committee
than Hugh Hughes.
The board of education of Columbus
saves the Columbus school district hun
dreds of dollars by its business like meth
ods of buying school supplies. The
board of supervisors of Platte county
wastes hundreds of dollars of county
funds by unbusiness like methods of
buying supplies and by direct violations
of the law.
The Columbus board of education sub
mits bids for all the supplies the schools
need and expect to use.
Bids for county supplies are submit
ted without regard to the supplies ac
tually needed and used, both as to qual
ity and quantity.
The Columbus board of education
buys of the lowest bidder, not on the
supplies as a whole, but item by item,

items which he offers cheaper than all

Speaking of "doctored core," one
of the most interesting cases within
the memory of .Nebraska was the sort
of grain distibnted by Governor Fur
nas when he was in charge of the
state's exhibt at New Orleans. Mr.
Furnas employed a man to sit in a
back room and dig out grains from
large white ears. In place of the mis
sing grains others of a deep yellow
were substituted and glued in. The
yellow grains were placed in the ears
in such a manner as to form the let
ters of the word "Nebraska." The
same was done with yellow ears,
white grains being inserted to form
the word. The ears in themselves
were a curiosity in the south, but
with a word apparentlv imprinted by
nature they went like hot cakes.
"Did they grow that way?" asked
many visitors. "They grew," bland
ly replied Governor Furnas. Albion
The cold weather has put a damper
on almost everything but the piano
contest. The timo is so short till the
olose of the contest that it is realized
that strenuous work must be done by
the contestant who expects to win.
The vote as published shows a great
revival of interest for the finish. And
it must remembered that the publish
ed vote represents for the most part,
simply the vote put in by friends of
the contestants. It is not one of the
rules of the contest that tho votes are
to be turned in as they are received
and the contestants are all takng ad
vantage of this fact. As to the number
or votes that are be:ne held back, the
Journal is entirely in the dark and is
glad to be in the dark.
It is for us to see that the contest
ant who secures the most votes shall
get the piano. It is time that friends
of the contestants were turning in
their subscriptions for their favorites.
Some havesubscribedfor friends whom
they wished to have the Journal.
This is a good plan and it is believed
that many others will add to the same
means for helping their favorites.
It is estimated that the total vote
will reach nearly 200.000. Let the
good work go on.
Representative Foster of Douglas
has introduced a resolution asking for
the appointment of a committee of
three to investigate freight rates in
Nebraska and to report a bill to re
place the present dead "maximum
freight rate" law. The resolution was
unanimously adopted and the commit
We believe that we voiced the senti
ment of a large majority of taxpayers
when we said a few weeks ago that
action along this line was the most
important that could be taken by the
present legislature. There are many
other important subjects for legislation
perhaps; but the question of freight
rates is fundamental It goes to the
pocketbook of every citizen. If rates
in Nebraska are too high, and most
people believe they are, the state
should provide the remedy. If they
are not too high, the investigation can
do no harm. And the committee to
whom is intrusted this important mat

Roosevelt before the Union League

an address which is not only one of
the most notable delivered by Presi
dent Roosevelt, but one of the most
notable ever delivered by any man in
any country. It is notable because it
is a shoulder blow at monopoly and in
favor of governmental control, made
at. the psvchologial moment when such
a blow is most effective. The address
will be read bv thousands of people
jast at the time when the question of
railway control is before Congress
and it will create a tide of public
opinion that even our isolated United
States Senate will scarcely dare to
attempt to override. The heart of
every true American is beating in

A physician should be the last to
call attention to a flaw in the person
al character of a brother phsician.
A lawyer should never criticise the
conduct of a brother lawyer. Profes
sional ethics should forever bar an ed
itor from using his columns for a per
sonal attack upon a brother editor or
upon any other person.
On the other hand if one physician,
acting in the capacity of examiner for
a life insurance company is called.up
on to examine a brother physician,
it becomes his duty to record all the
infirmities he finds, even though the
brother physician is his closest per
sonal friend. If a lawyer is acting as
public prosecutor it becomes his duty
to try to convict a brother lawyer,
who has been arresteden a felonous
Likewise it becomes the duty of an
editor to mention the name of a broth
er editor, regardless of personal re
lations, if he finds his brother connect
ed in anv way with official corruption
from which the public suffers. For it
is just as much the function of a news
paper to expose without fear or favor
official dishonesty and corruption, as
it is the function of the prosecuting
attorney to prosecute criminals. In
both cases it is simply the perform
ance of public duty. But the perfor
mance of public duty should stop
short of personal persecution. What
constitutes persecution? A physician
might be forced by honesty to report
the same infirmities of a brother physi
cian to a dozen different life insur
ance companies which the latter
sought to join. The repetition of the
same findings in the several reports
would not constitute persecution, for
the repetition would be made in the
course of the performance of a plain
A prosecuting attorney might be
compelled, in the performance of his
duty, to try a brother lawyer on the
same charge in several different courts,
or on various charges in the same
court. Repetition in this instance
would not constitute persecution.
An editor may hnd it necessary, in
the discharge of his duty to the pub
lic repeatedly to call attention to a
state ot corruption with which a
brother editor may unfortunately be
connected, in order thoroughly to im
press the magnitude of the offense.
Such repetition is not persecution.
It would be persecution for the
physician in the case instanced to
make repeatedly a falsa report or to
make use of the facts to injure per
sonally his brother physician.
It wonld be persecution for the pros
ecuting attorney to bring false charges
or to make use of true charges to in
jure personally a brother lawyer.
Likewise would it be persecution for
an editor repeatedly to make false
charges against a brother editor or to
make use of the truth otherwise than
in the interest of the public.
Professional ethics demands that
persecution be eliminated bnt it also
demands that professional courtesy
shall not stand in the way of public
writings assert that the question is
ot whether Lawtoa it a gambler and
windier bat whether his story about
the high financiers is true.
This criticism would of course hold
good provided Mr. Donohoe had fin
ished his argument and had presented
nothing but attacks on Mr. Lawson
personally, whether those attacks were
true or not. Bnt Donohoe has not fin
ished the presentation cf his cate. Ha
has promised to deal f ally with the
charges of Mr. Lawson, but say that
since much of Lawson s case rests sole
ly on Lawson's word it will be valua
ble to have a correct idea of who and
what Mr. Lawson is before proceeding
to examine his testimony. And this
is perfectly proper. Mr. Lawson him
self has used six months in preliminar
ies before starting on the story of
Amalgamated. Moreover, it is always
in order to introdnce testimony estab
lishing the unreliability and previous
bad character of the witnesses for the
otheeide. Lawson has publio sea
iment with him largely, not so muoh
because his story bears the marks of
disinterested truth as because it is a
matter of common knowledge that the
methods of the captains of finance are
a refined form of highway robbery.
But both sides of every question
mu6t be considered. Lawson will no
doubt have somewhat to say about
Mr. Donohne personally, and the mer
its of the real question will not be af
fected by their exchange of long range
Incidentally, Mr. Donohne is finan
cial editor of the New York Commer
cial, which paper Mr. Lawson says
belongs to H. H. Rogers.
A GRAND JURY.
Representative Hoare's bill for call
ing a county grand jury at least once
a year was kiUed last week by the
sifting committee. This bill was a
good one and it is too bad it did not
get on our statute books.
What would a grand jury do for
Platte county taxpayers?
It would indict supervisors Ernst and
Bender under the criminal code of Ne
braska and initiate a suit to remove
them from office and collect a fine of
$200 each, ia addition to the mocey
they have collected iu violation of
the law. It would pry into the nietb-
ods of the democratic printing mon
opoly in Platte county which robs the
taxpayers of hundreds of dollars every
year. It wonld see if theie is any
criminal statute in Nebraska that
would reach any of the joint conspir
ators who throogh an organized sys
tem of graft defeat a law they lack
the courage openly to violate.
It wonld root oat enough rottenness
in Platte county at one sitting to save
the taxpayers ten times the cost of the
grand jury for ten years. Why do
not private citizens make complaint?
Because most citizens are engaged in
business, and modern business" makes
cowards of us all." Grafters buy
things the same as other people. The
majority of the people like to see
corruption routed and they will sit
back and applaud the fellow who
dares to route it, provided they can
sit far enough back not to be seen.
Z Mr. Hoare's bill wonld have releivtfd
private citizens of an unpleasant duty
and one they seldom perform.
But perhaps the voters of Platte
county will remove the cause of the
disease at the next election.

Volume 60 of the Nebraska reports,
which is just out, is somewhat of an
innovation. It wpnld require a care
ful counting of the pages to determine
whether it has more of court opinions
or more of reporter's notes. In one
puce the reporter has inserted page
after page of quotations from Shakes
peare. It does not appear whether
this was done for the benefit of the
poor lawyers who cannot afford to
own a volume of Sbakespeare,nor does
it appear from what statute the report

THE LAWSON QUESTION.
The exchange of courtesies between
Mr. lawson and Mr. Donohne is
drawing comment from the press at
large which is somewhat divided..
Mr. Donohne has published two of
his weekly articles, labelled "The
Truth About Frenzied Finance."
Both those articles have dealt with
the rjenons.1 Matnr mn .i
acter of Mr. Lawson. Critics of his
The case of Carl Schubert who is
charged with a violation of the state
game law because some quail were
found on his premises, suggests a
possibly that the law may be defec
tive. If, as Mr. Schubert savs. the
bag containing the game was handed
him with the information that it con
tained rabbits, and he took it without
examning the contents, he is not guilty
of violation of the law. Whatever the
law actually is. it certainly should
be conscious possession and not mere
possession of forbidden game which
would make a man liable.
