The biennial election law has passed
both houses. Whila wo favored the
bill, it looks, in the light cf tho opin
ion of the lawyer?, as if Governor
Mickey would save tho Ftat o sosie
needless litigation by vetoing the
measure, and thns save the courts the
trouble of declaring it unconstitu
tional. We met an Albion Lulv in Colum
bus tho other day. She is a reader rf
the Weekly Journal. In the course of
onr conversation she r3:uarked,"i3y
the way I have the Journal to thank
for something. Tho other dav I read
a dressmaker's ad. and know the
dressmaker and her work. I va-i clad
to learn that she was in Columbus,
and took my work to her." Columbas
merchants and Columbus hotels prolit
by the lady's business trip to Colum
bus. Senator Hughes was showered with
boquets from tho ladies whoa his bill
doing away with memorial day sports
passed tho senate. And the boquets
were deserved. The clay consecrated
to the memory of the nation's fallen
heroes the most sacred of our holidays.
Tho sacrilegious custom which has
been growine in favor of making the
day one for jollification by indulgence
in base ball, horse racing, dancing
and other amnscments hss always met
with tho condemnation cf thoughtful
and patriotic citizens. Th niir:i
needs at least one sacred hcibiay, ono
day fnr worshipful reflection upon J ho
men and deeds that have mado possi
ble the institutions of tin present.
Senator Hughes's bill gives legislative
sanction to a sentiment tint should
be cherished and encouraged in every
homo in America. Wo have no'bo
quetsr,f or Senator Iuirhe bur wocive
our most eni nest and hir.- pMvsr
ment. The governor has vetoed too bill
which passed tno legislator" requiring
all practitioners of Christian tcunco
and other forms of mental healing to
have four years of medi-al t mining.
Him reasons for vetoing tho bill are
that it is technically unconstitutional.
that it interferes with reiieions fr-e-dom.and
that n exempts ostooMirhi.-rs
from tho restrictions iinposv.l on
Christian scientists. There i- cre.it
joy among the Christian healers, and
perhaps nobody is fooling particularly
6orry over the vi3to, althoun'i men of
ecienco would no doubt have b"e;i
glad to seo tho bill go through. After
all, it has always baen a ijuosticu
whether cosipleto ignorance is more
dangerons than a little knowledge,
and there is many a man with an .".

health than tho Christian science

THE SEX ATE.
After a hasty survey ot tho railroad
question lasting over a period of about
thirty years, the senators have decided
that any evils arising from present
railway laws or lack of laws mast not
be remedied without mature coiisidern
t ion. So they refused to follow the lead
of the precipitate house in railway leg
islation. Instead they adopted the tti
nined course of appointing a commit
tee to study the question. Pure food
legislation, having been under consid
eration for only twenty years, was de
nied. The arbitration treaties and San
Domingo treaty .wero turned down
owing to fears that the senate might
inadvertently get into the habit of do
ing things. The statehood bill was
passed, not becauso the senate intend
ed to grant statehood to anv territory,
but because it dearly loves a practical
The senate, in short, exemplifies the
motive principle of its dominant influ
ence whose slogan is: "Stand still: il
you can't stand still, whatever yon do,
don't go ahead." The uso cf this slo
gan is by no means confined to the
UnitedStates senate. State legislatures,
ven in the west, have been known to
be paralyzed, utterly unible to enact
any progressive legislation, owing to
the influence that is most prominently
manifested in the,UnitedStates senate.
Some havfl even professed to see
signs of tho blicht in Nebraska legis
The remedy for ail this is simple:
Public ownership. Public ownership
of United States senators, and public
ownership of state lecislatares. Stare
The Cady railroad commission bill
has passed tbn House with an amend
ment which provides tor an elective
commission. It is now up to tbe sen
ate to show whether it will respond
to the demand of the peoplo and cf
the Republican party for effective rate
rejralation, or whether it will stand
as the self confessed slave of the rail
If the senato cuts out the "elective"
provision of the House amendment or
Lthe powers of the .commission
as much as if it sLonld refuse out
right to pass tho treasure.
There is :: strong tuspicicn and the
Journal shares in that suspicion, that
corrupt influence has Lten employed
to dole at tho t'Ao "rate reculaticn"
bill' that have met their doom. Tnero
in just one meant; by wuih the legislator--!

that is ny giving us a strong elective
railroad commission, with power "to

And they will be held bonnd to give
vi a constitutional commission and

tareo more years tho relief that tho

mittee report says:
" Wo feel that the prctestants have
other ways of making their views

SOME EX A VPLES.
Tho Telegram makes the blent
tcs?rt:oa that Ed. How is a "profess-
ionr.l railroad lobbyist" and that the
'C. lam bus Journal is Ed Hoare"s
For the sake of argument let us
assume that both tho charges are true
although the Teiogram has nevpr in
troduced a lino of evidence to support
either. And on that assumption, let
as see what that great lobbyist has
hail to say through his personal organ
en tho railroad.
The- por.-?ual oran of Ed Hcare.
tho professional railroad lobbyist in
it- weekly issno of January 11. said:
"Why do not the members of the
uresenr legislature "stand pat" and
refuse to vote for jrfr. Barket or anv
other candidate for the United States
senate, until ho has openly pledged
himtelf to support the Roosevelt rail
road program? Mr. Burkett. tell the
people ' where you aro ct'on theRocse
vels program, or make room lor a can
didate who will."
The peisocal oran cf Hcare, the
professional railroad lobbyist said in
its weekly issue February 1, reforrinjr
to the bill for requiring "demurrage"
of the railroad companies for .failure
ish a shipper with an empty car with
in 24 hours after request is made for
same, and failing to furnish tho car
the railroad is reauirtd to pay tho
shipper an indemnity or 'iipuarrttge"
cbargo cf ono cellar for 'Ji hours de
lay. If this provision sbocid go into
.effect, the railroads wotmi get i; Joae
ot their c-.vn mediciuo m the mat;?r
of demurrage t:bu.ees. ihere seems
indeed to ! no g-cd ieafn why n
rule should not work both ways."
Tho personal organs of Sd Hoare.tho
professional railroad lobbyist, in its
weekly isuo of Fobruiry 1:
"The legislature is frittering away
valuably time oa bills for eon'ity op
tion, v.v.1 icebiiato asylums that bad

The. pergonal cgan ot li I Ujan.tho
professional railro.td lubbyNr, said in
its ttailr issa of Febri.uty 4 :
" Wn "belii'vtj that we voiced tho
sentiment of a huge iaajority cf tax

thai action aloue this lino was the
most important that could be taken by
tho present legislatnie. There a:e
many other important subjects for
legislation perhaps; bat the question
of freight rates is fundamental. It
goes to tho pockftbook of ovry citi
zen." Tiio nsrsouai organ f Ed Hoarc,
tho professional railroad lobbyist, saiil
in its issue cf February 22:
- ''We hope that neprosentativeHoare
will not "wear cut" bsfore doinu
sumo effective work for one of the
freight rate bills now before theUonse.

Tho personal organ ot Ed Hoare tho
prnfesssional railroad lobbyis. said in
its weekly issue of March 15:
"Tho Journal has repsatedly urged
tho importance of freight rate legisla
tion by tho present legislature. Ad
mitting that throngh ratea in th
United States as a whole aro low,
wo have urged that high local rates
in Nebraska aro destructive to Ir.eal
indnstties depending upon local mar
kets." The personal organ of Ed Hoare, the
professsional railroad lobbyist, said
in it? weekly issue of March 2'.):
"Tho .ianrnr.S nevertheless is Btill
of the opinion that a rate bill should
have parsed, pending the establish
ment of a commission, as p. measute
of temporary relief to Nebraska ship
pers. It is now up to the House to pass
the senate's "commission bil If
they refaso to pass that, tho burden
will bo oa this legislature to prove
that it is not owned by the railroads.
And the harden will be on tho iarmors
and other shippers two years hence,
to elect legislators concerning whose
views on thn regulation thorc will
be no doubt."
Tho personal organ of td Hoare,
the professional railroad lobbist, said
in its daily issr.o of March SI :
"Whiio tho Journal yet hopes tint
the senato will pnss tbe amendedCady
bill, as a proof of ite iide-lity to the
people of Nobraska who have bepn
disappointed at the death of nil other
rate regulation bills, we wish, to go
oa recoid now, in case the bill fuils
to give tho icquircd relief, in denun
ciation of every legislator vho has
voted against these rate bills and we
want to say hero and now that the
Journal will never in the futuro sup
port a candidate for the legislature
who will not live up to his oa:h of

who is not known to be a man who

This is a part of the railroad record
of the Journal which the Telegram is
pleased to call the "personal organ of
Ed Hcare." Wo challenge compar-
m of that record with tueTelegram's

always onho sido of law and order,
was sworn ilk as deputy United States
marshall tbe Cttner day in New York,
on recommendation of tha president.
Being interesteiNin the cun question,
he made some observations on the
customs of the twoWctions, East and
West, as follows:
"Out where I comerom," ho said,
"a man does not carryVa gun unless

to as that nib doctrine is sonuiwhat
like liie old ttiiuiv i.f kiepit.g out of

Moreover, the colonel looks :t til

ward overcoming that hang-dug look
by loading p the starboard sido of
his posterior vestments with a t'eadlv
weapon. Tho samo is not intended
for use, nor for ornament; bat it con
fers an inner consciousness of dignity
nnd responsibility and a firmly re
strained martial spirit. And it is ccod

FURTHER DISCUSSION CF KOC'X
MAGS MEETING HELD AT COGTOr;
Addressed by Two Fromincnt Congre
gational Ministers Meetinj l-iril z
Overcrowded and Many Cpcakcrs
Are Heard on Both Sides.
Boston, April -1. By prearrangr
ment tho regular weekly meeting el
tho Congregationaiist ministers of
Boston and icinity conshlcicd the
question of the acceptance of the
$109,000 gift from John D. Rockefeller
to the American board of commission
ers for foreign missions and the pro
test of representatives of the minis
ters in the denomination in New En
gland, as well as tho recent report on
the questie.n recently accepted by tho
prudential committee of the American
board. Rev. F. A. Noble, D. D.. ot
Chicago, representing the prudential
committee, defended the action of that
committee in accepting the gift. The
Protestants' rpoksman was Rev. Dan
iel Evans of Cambridge. Tho nice; in t
hall was overcrowded ar.a bolides thf
two principal speakers, many were
heard on both sides. Dr. Noble's
principal contentions were: "The
American board wa. not organized to
look into tho morality cf tho man who
makes a gift. The board was organ
ized to propagate the gospel in heath
en lands and tho charter provides
that any man who makes a bequest
shall have it carried out. No man
had a right to hinder any other man
who wanted to do good."
Dr. Evans, in reply, said: "Ono of
the corporations conspicuous and no
torious for methods and practices,
which are morally iniquitous and so
cially destructive, is the Standard Oil
company, whoso president is John D.
Rockefeller. The facts arc in the pos
session cf the general public and in
the light of them our acceptance or
the gift and our relation to Mr. Rocke
feller aro being judged by the plain
peoplo. We ask the prudential com
mittee, as an organ of the church,
not to involve tho church in en
tangling alliances with opposing in
terests and antagonistic forces. The
church must be kept free to strike her
blow and speak her rebuke against
corporate evil and free to be the lead
er and inspirer of these who, in many
organized ways, are fighting the battle
of social righteousness."
