PARTING OF THE WAYS.
" Yoa caannot run railroads as you
run private business. You must re
spond to the public demand. If there
is danger of discrimination then you
must allow the establishment of some
tribunal that will remedy that dis
crimintion" These words from Sec
retary x'aft, hurled into the teeth of
300 members of thelnternational Rail
way Congress, including all the lead
ing railroad magnites of the world,
while they were banqueting inW
ington recently, certainly "started
something." Mr. Fish, president
of the American Bailway Association,
who presided as toast master, was on
his feet in a moment ready to forget
the regular order and to reply to Mr.
Taft in a lengthy speech. Again Mr.
Taft got the floor for fifteen minutes.
No occasion could have made more
conspicuous the parting of tbe ways
between President Roosevelt and the
railroad magnates than this one.
Secretary Taft spoke for President
Roosevelt and for the people of tbe
United States. Ho epoko where those
interested on the ether title could
hear and understand.
This banquet episode, coupled with
the emphatic utterances of President
Roosevelt at Denver on rate regula
tion have drawn the lines in no un
certain fashion. The United States
will have government supervision of
rates on Roosevelt's theory of a
"squaro deal" for the railroads as
well as for the public, or we will have,
as Mr. Taft suggested, government
regulation as a result of a campaign
that will bode ill for the railroads.
President Roosevelt voiced the ex
act sentiments of a majority of the
American people when he said:''l
will not be satisfied with any com
promise that does not bring relief to the
people from the conditions that now
exist in regard to transportation
affairs in this country."
Does it pay the city to solicit bids
on its job work, or should the job
work go to the organ of the victorious
party at what the Telegram in its pro
position calls the "usual and custom
ary prices' of uush work? Let the
record answer for itself.
In showing this record to Columbus
citizens, we invite no criticism upon
the Telegram for doing work below
cost when it has to bid, while collect
ing from 100 to 900 per cent of those
prices when the work was done in
102 and 11103 at the "usual and cus
tomary prices." That is purely a
matter of business policy for the
Telegram to determine for it6elf.

Right on the heels of the Pat Crowe
interview, comes now the World
Herald and tells under a big, black
heading all about how President
Roosevelt went through Omaha Tues
day night. The paper was datedWed
nesday morning, and evidently had
been printed some timo on Tuesday,
before Omaha found ont that the
presidential car had gono around by
another road. This unannounced de
tour was unfortunate fur Omaha, un
fortunate for Miss Mae Wood, and
unfortunate for the enterprisingWorld
But this was a journalistic misfor
tune and not a fault. We have all
dose it. When you know something
is going to happen at a certain time,
and the compositors are shouting for
copy you don't go ahead and write
it up in advance on general principles,
you are moet too conscientious to ba
in the newspaper business.
No human vision could have fore
seen that a president of this republic
would pass by such a metropolis as
Omaha and cut across country to a
village like Plattsmouth. As far as
the president was concerned it was
doubtless an oversight ; with Secretary
Loeb it may have been an instinct
born of nature's great law of self
preservation; and for the World
Herald it was undeniably tough luck.
However, considered as one of the
exigencies of tne trade, we are dispos
ed to forgive the World-Herald for the
Roosevelt incident, but we must insist
that it proceed forthwith to dig up
Pat Crowe in the flesh.
THE ROOSEVELT PLATFORM.
The msotmn of the American people
may make mistakes of judgment
on complex -economic questions but
they are seldom mistaken in men.
The masses voted for Roosevelt, the
man, not for Roosevelt the protec
tionst, or Roosevelt the tariff reform
er. They voted for him because they
believe in his manhood, in his hon
esty. And that faith has crown into
an ever crowning confidence that has
absorbed party lines and factional
differences. Never before in the his
tory pf America could the masses of
the American people repeat that senti
ment of Thomas Jefferson " We are all
republicans, we are all democrat","
with tho enthusiasm that they can re
peat it today. Exact justice before
the law to all men, to high and low,
co rich aad poor, is the guiding prin
ciple of Roosevelt's administration, as
well as of his private life. And this
principle is the embodiment of the
spirit of the American constitution.
Tne republican party should be and
is proud of its leader. Battherepub-
licans who voted for Roosevelt are
no more proud of that ballot than are
the thousands of ex-democrats who
placed the crjfs in the same circle.
If the republican organization of
Nebraska would continue in tower it

The people who argue that the
Interstate Commerce Conimiosion is
a failure should take a look at the
goings-on between the fruit (-nippers
of Michigan and the owners of private
refrigerator cars who have been levy
ing almost prohibitory rates niton
fruit shipments. The shipper com
plained to tho Interstate Commerce
Commission and now the private car
owners offer to arbitrate before trial,
agreeing to a reduction of 30percont in
freight rates. If the Commission is a
dismal failnro why do not the car
owners lot the matter go to tho com
mission? The fact is, the frnit grow
ers of Michigan will get better rates,
and they will have the Commission to
thank for the reduction. Those who
argue that tho cumin is; ion is useless,
first should study rate sat istics since
87. Then they should remember
that they aro rising the argument
which is being used by the railroads
against the enlargement of tho com
mission's powers, which is proposed
by President Roosevelt.
,1 TEMPERANCE LECTURE.
A couple of weeks ngo a commer
ical traveler was showing his goods to
ajnerchant inLindsay when the latter
commented on his having apparent
"shakiness." The traveling man
laughed and said : ' ' Yes, I have been
making a fool of mysell lately ; been
out with the boys often ; was on a
toot lost night."
Tho merchant thereupon gave him
some good fatherly advice and wound
it up bv saying: "Cut out the booze,
or it will get you sure. " This week
thojame man called on the same mer
chant and said: "I wih I had taken
your advice. 1 have just received a
telegram from tin no use or dering me
to send in my grips by the 15th, and
stating that they would send a sober
man out to cover mv territory. I have

apostles have been able to produce.
-1 CLOSED INCIDENT.
The Telegram is glad that the con
troversy 'regarding the teaching of
relieious history in the Columbus
public schools has been adjusted o
tho apparent satisfaction of all con
cerned." We congratulate tho editor
of tho Telegram on his keen percep
tive powers in learning after three
weeks what the public has known all
tho timo. He is the only man in Co
lumbus to whom that controversy"
socalied.has not been n closed incident
from tho begnning. In fust, tho "in
cident' was never opened. Tho Telo
grnrn tried to open it by fortifying
itself behind Father Marian, who
spoko without investigation on n sub
ject concerning which it turns out
that his information was faulty.
It is now up to the Telegram to
apologize for going off half cocked
on this subject without investigating
it ; or to admit the truth of the only
charge made by the Journal, namely.
that the editor of the Telegram used
his papor as a vent for his own per
sonal enmity against another man."
SOME FUND A MENTALS.
Rev. Theobald Kalamajo, pastor of
the local Catholic church, has a very
full statement in the Inst Columbus
Telegram, touching upon the Tele
gram's attempt to make use of certain
complainrs against Principal Britell's
method cf teaching religious history.
The main point ofFather Theobald's
article, so far as it bears on the Tele
gram's charge against Mr. Briteli. is
to verify the statement made by the
Journal, namely, that Father Theo
bold had not investigated tho com
plaints that appeared in the Telegram.
And his article goes a step farther.
It absolutely clears Mr. Briteli from
the charges Referring to a conversa
tion which paseed between himself
and Mr. tfritcll. Father Theobold
says: "This explaination clears him
of the charges made against him."
The Telegram finding itself in deep
water from making use of mere gos
sip to injure Mr. Briteli, evidently
hoped to clear itself by getting this
statement fromFatherTheobald. Andin
deed, Father Theobold, fair man that
he is, has taken more than his chare
of the responsibility for the mistake
but his statement only emphasizes
the truth of the Journal's statements
and of the general belief, that it was
poor policy for theTelergam to hazard
making strife between church and
Bchool with the hope of annoying
thereby a personal enemy.
Speaking in general, Father Theo
bala brings ont a thought that should
be emphasized, because of the funda
mental truth it contains. And it is
because a majority of the people of
Columbus. Catholics, Protestants and
non-church members alike, recognize
this truth, that the Telegram's article
did not stir up the controversey
which it otherwise would have cam-
eJ Those are Father Theobold's
words: "The Catholics of this com
munity most certainly cannot And do
not clai n of any man, whether private
or public, special privileges on relig
This statement applies with equal
force to every other church or relig
ions organization whatsoever.
In America cuurcn and state are
eternally si-uaratrd. This truth is
witteu in tho blood of tho hundreds
of thousands who have fallen in re
ligious wars, waged uh bitterly by
Pro: i stunts as by Catholics.
The free stato school of America, in
harmony with the separation of church
and state. is forever barred from Teach
ing creed, dogma, or religicus system.
And likewise every church cf what
evor denomination is forever barred
from tho privilege of interfering,
eitlior negatively or positively with
the free public schools.
It is tha right of minister or priosf,
not as clergyman, but as individual
ami ciiizen, to make complaint of
any teacher in onr public schools who
is thougut o be speakinc ior or against
any church or who displuvs nuy other
evidence of incompetency. If the
difiiculry cannot be adjusted amicably
between teacher and complainant,
the matter should be brongbt to the
attention of the board of education,
the men selected by the public to ad
minister ocr schools, and the only
men who have auy authority whatever
in demanding what 6hall or shall not
be taught or in passing upon the in
competency or competency cf teachers.
There never will be nn agreement
of authorities on certain points iu
ct-urch history any more than there
will bo an agreement as to how much
of Shakespear's plays was not written
Church history, as such, has no place
in onr schools bnt the history of re
ligons movoments has, and it shonld
be taught in relation to the period
studied, and not with reference to any
time church of the present.
If all individuals, like Father Thoo
bald, would be fair enough to take
their gieivances to the teacher first, or
at least to the board of education, be
fore permitting the press to make use
of them to further political or per
sonal ends, there would be better har
mony and better teaching in onr
And harmony would likewise be
promoted if tencherB would always
bear in mind that they are not hired
tn run the churches and if ministers
would bear in mind that they willnot
be permitted to run the schools in
tho interest of their respective
