AH TO VUMPCLSOHT ARBITRATION,
The trndes union con-jrrss now In ses
sion in London Is expected to adopt a
resolution favoring legislation creating
a court of arbitration, with compulsory
power to settle disputes between em
ployers and employes. The question of
compulsory arbitration for the settle
ment of labor controversies m of grow
ing Interest both here and abrond. IU
ctnily Justice Shlras of the supreme
court of the United States expressed the
opinion, which has received a good deal
of attention, that arbitration Is the log
ical method of settling labor troubles
such as the anthracite coal strike, which
uffects the general prosperity and com
fort of a great section of the country.
lie pointed out, . however,, that one
greut difliculty In the way of an arbi
tration law is the fact that labor unlous
are not Incorporated anil until they are
incorporated uo law can be made bind-
ug, as no contract or agreement could
ue forced upou them. "Incorporation of
all labor unions Is the primary step
toward the passage of an arbitration
law," said Justice 6 1 Iras. "The unions
must be responsible for the carrying out
of an agreement and until they are there
Is - little hope for compulsory arbitra
tion of labor troubles."
Iteferring to this Senator Ilanna said
that his experience among the labor
leaders would indicate that they are not
yet prepared to admit the force of the
agreement in favor of compulsory ar
bitration. "In other words," said the
Ohio senator, who has had much to do
with labor leaders, "they are opposed
to compulsory arbitration. All this," be
added, "Is the work of education and
must be approached very carefully and
by short steps." The premier of the
commonwealth of Australia, who Is now
in the United States, is reported as re
garding this country in a condition of
Industrial barbarism, because we have
not a system of arbitration such as that
of Australia. lie is quoted as saying:
I think that we in Australia , are very
much.fn advance of -your country in the
matter-of dealing with industrial' con
ditions. . By the terms of our arbitra
tion law great strikes are made prac
tically impossible. Arbitration is com-'
pulsory and since the enactment of this
compulsory- arbitration law, strikes In
New South Wales are unknown." ' It
should be needless to point out that a
system which works well in Australia
might be found ntterely impracticable in
this country. ,
The question of compulsory arbitra
tion has been frequently and freely dis
cussed here and its advocates have al
ways been found in a very small minor
ity. it, is not a popular plan either with
the" employers or the leaders of labor.
At the conference of the representa
tives of capital and labor In Chicago
some time ago the question was very
carefully considered and opinion was
overwhelmingly against compulsory ar
bitration. The idea has been prac
tically abandoned by those who are con
cerning themselves with the problem
of flndlpg a, way to preserve Industrial
peace. With both employers and wage
workers generally opposed to compuls
ory arbitration it Is manifestly useless
to urge it and attention should be given
to some other method for the peaceable
settlement of labor controversies.
TAltl PLAY AKD KO fATOB. '
A free ballot and a honest count, has
been the watchword of republicans for
many years. That principle is Involved
in primary elections Just as much as In
general elections. The choice of party
candidates expressed by secret untram
meled ballot and verified through lm
partial election officers Is essential to
Insure the support of the rank and file
to tint nominees of the party.
In the coming Douglas county pri
maries republican candidates of all fac
tions have a right to insist, that no
candidate shall be given' advantage in
any shape or form over bis competitor
in the race. The main object of the
primary election law is to Insure fair
play and no favor. All .the safeguards
of the law are designed to bring about
From the initial step in calling the
governing committee together to pro
vide for primaries and conventions to
the certification of the returns the law
is drawn to prevent snap Judgment and
trickery and fraud. - Committeemen
must have at least five days' notice of
the meeting and the candidates and
voters at least twenty days from the
date of the call to the day of the pri
maries for the purpose of public discus
slon of candidates and issue. The ma
chinery provided by law for the pro
tection of the ballot box and the casting
of the ballots Is the same as that for
general elections, and the official ballots
of the primary in cities must conform to
the requirements of the Australian bal
lot law. '.-,
At every step and stage the prime
purpose is to secure the honest expres
sion of party sentiment without coer
clou or fraud. To this no candidate
can rightfully object

In a recent 'article Senator Lodge said
that no Asiatic people has ever had so
large a degree of popular representative
government either given or promised to
them as the Filipinos. lie declared
that it is a great experiment one new
to the world, but "the republican party.
at least believes that with time and
patience, both in large measure, we
can solve the problem of the govern
ment of eastern tropical possession iu
accordance with American principles."
In the very brief report from Manila
of the address of Governor Taft at the
banquet of the American Chamber of
Commerce there is givep a supporting
view of the idea presented by the
Massachusetts senator. That Is that
the United States is to remain in the
Philippines ' with a view to educating
the natives to an understanding of self
government "and other conditions whir
would enable them to decide whether
they desired to become Independent or
be made Into a state like Canada or
Australia under Great Britain,1 That
m the experiment which the United
States is now trying In the Philippines.
There Is a peculiar people to deal with
a people wholly different from any we
have ever before hnd anything to do
with and who have been living under
Iolitlcal Institutions and social condi
tions entirely different from ours. Their
traditions, their ideas, their social re
lations, their domestic life, their no
tions of civic duty and political re
sponsibility, are totally different from
those of the Anglo-Saxon and particu
larly of the American. For centuries
the Filipinos have lived under a rule
and been taught in a school of politics,
morals and ethics essentially different
from those they are now required to ac
cept There Is a most radical depar
ture to be made, an experiment "new
to the world." Millions of people are
to be educated out of all they have
learned during many generations and
taught to accept principles utterly an
agonlstlc to those they have lived under.
It is ludeeu a great experiment, so
great that there is some warrant for
doubt whether It will be wholly suc
cebsfuL That the task will encounter
still more difficulties, that there are
troubles and perplexities yet to be met
with, is not to be doubted. But what
has already been accomplished Justifies
hope that with patience and persever
ance we shall be able in time to firmly
establish American principles In those
far off islands and to convince their
people that American rule is for their
benefit Such assurances as were given
the Filipinos by Governor Taft ought to
have a good Influence and followed by
acts which attest their sincerity cannot
fall to make an impression favorable to

DAMAGES FOR IfOISJS.
Massachusetts Opeaa m Hew Flela (or
Chief Jostle Masoa of the superior
court, Boston, - Mass., ha Jut handed
down a decision which I ot more than
ordinary Interest,: and will. If generally
recognized as sound law, have far reach
ing consequences. In a suit of on Ed
ward F. Baker against th Boston Elevated
Railroad company for damages. Judge
Mason awarded the plaintiff . 12,000, bait
tha amount h claimed, and decided that
CO per cent of the award, or (1,000, was
for the damage caused by noise. As the
immediate outcome of this decision suits
have been filed against the road aggre
gating about $6,000,000. If Judge Mason's
decision is affirmed by the supreme court
the company will have to pay no lncon
slderable damages. The suits are brought
by property owners who have had to re
duce rents to keep their tenants, by hotel
keepers, who declare that rooms fronting
on the tracks are uninhabitable, and by
numerous Individual whose' property, a
hown by the decrease In valuation allowed
by the assessors, has been largely de
creased In value.
In Its defense the company claimed Its
road was tor tha public benefit and could
not be operated without nolae, and that
this was understood when the right-of-way
wa given by the city. The court did not
take thl view : of the cas. although
Judges In some other states have done so,
but ruled that "Injury of a substantial
character to a particular astat resulting
directly from an unlawful act creating
noisome smells, ' noxious vapors, dust,
moke or great 'and disturbing noises,
whereby It occupation 1 rendered lncon
venlent or uncomfortable, 1 damage re
coverable In a prlrate action, whether th
act I also a public wrong or otherwise."
The court made It decision even more
emphatic by declaring that "a a private
nuisance It would be of such gravity that
It not beyond the power of th legislature
to legalize It without providing compensa
tlon. It la difficult to believe that It wa
intended to omit such provision except on
the plainest manifestation of such In
The case now goes to the supreme court,
and ths decision ot that tribunal will be
looked for with much Interest, not be
cause It will cost the road an Immense

affirmed, . but because It lay down the
new principle which may be extended even
further In It operation, that In case of
Interference with Individual right by cor
poration of thl class nols la responsi
ble for half th damage, and hence should
involve Increased compensation. In a city
like Boston, wher th atreet are narrow
and alley are not available. It la hard
to construct a road which does not closely
abut upon property frontage. Should tb

sion of the lower, ucb grave problem

of expense that they may have to get under

Ohiowan: Hon. E. H. Hlnshaw, candi
date for congrea In thl district, I ac-
used by th opposition of trying to make
himself useful to the rural population who
are a yet unprovided with free delivery
service. He haa done more than to try. He
ha succeeded admirably. Thl Is th
exact truth and neither Mr. Hlnshaw nor
his friend hav attempted to deny It H
want to make himself useful to con
stituent and will not wait until after the
election to begin. Mr. Hlnehaw' lnfluen-
lal position already enable him to aid
the rural delivery, a service very highly
ppreclated by them. He ha demon
strated hot klone his willingness, but hi
ability to make himself useful. The

republican party, th party that doe
things and promote prosperity to all
aes. In whose hands th government

the people. J. 8. Roblnsoa of Madison Is
candidate on the fusion ticket for th
same place and I standing on the shat
tered and splintered Kansas City plat
form, which never has and Is not likely
to do anything for th people. Th coun
try never w any mors prosperous than
at present, under republican government.
nd as experiment ar usually costly, es
pecially when thing ar In a prosperous
condition, then Is It not well to continue
under a republican administration? These
are things the voter should think about.

reason why Mr. McCarthy should be

San FVsnclsoo Call.
President Roosevelt Infuse Into his ad
dresse some homely philosophy that is
worthy of Ben Franklin. Representing ths
people of the greatest fres society ths
world haa known, and receiving adulations
and attentions bestowed upon ho other n
ecutlv of any other natloni he seems to sea
th necessity of reminding ths people that
good citizenship does not consist In the
glare and glitter and pageantry of life, an I
that whll pomp and circumstance may be
consistent with that quality they do not
alone constitute It
In his speech In Boston he uttered philos
ophy that deserves to b studied by all citi
zens. That It 1 trite and true does not
mean that It Is always mad th rule of ac
tion and the guide of life by all people. He
defined th first requisite ot good clttzen
ahlp that : "A man shall do, every day, V"
humdrum duties wall. A man Is not a good
citizen, I do not car how lofty hi thoughts
ar In th abstract, if In th concrete his
action do not bear them out It does not
make any difference how high hi aspira
tions are. If he doe not behave well In Ms
own family those aspirations are not going
to bear any visible fruit. He ha got to be
a good bread-winner, to take care of his
wife and children: he has got to be a good
neighbor, whom his neighbors can trust:
he haa got to act squarely la hi business
relations). In fact, be ha got to do all
these every day, ordinary thing, or he I
not a good citizen. The man or woman who
make up for ten dsys' Indifference to duty
by eleven day', morbid repentance, about
that Indifference Is of very Uttl us In the
That 1 a statement of th beginning and
foundation of all rlghtnes of life and ot all
worthy citizenship that cannot be too often
repeated by those whose exaltation of sta
tion gives them commanding opportunity to
be heard and heeded. The beginning of all
adjustment to every duty la at home, and
among thoe nearest When a nation Is
made up of people mindful ot the nearest
obligation, the duty that Is In first contact,
all ot Its larger interests are safe, for they
are in control of those who have learned
duty In its best school.
New England and the whole country ap
preciate this bit ot philosophy, which,
seeming simple, Is yet profound, and in
every home In the republlo there will be &
feeling of companionship for the president,
who precede the discussion of great prob
lem with this reminder of th only wise
preparation tor their solution.

It I not far to Yesterday -
And there we turn our eyes
To wher the good, glad memories
In pleasing pictures rise.
Tha faded roses of today
Grow red and rich with dew.
And where gray clouds are spreading now
We sea th skies ot blue.
Just down the way Is Yesterday-.
There sunshine always beams; ,
Today we close our eyes and s
Our yesterday In dreams;
Today w hear the long-dead song,
And now we understand
Its cadence, and know why it made
Our Yesterday all grand.
A little way to Yesterday
Today may have Its fears,
Yet yesterday Is filled with smfles.
Tomorrow haa its tear
Today tomorrow What of them.
When w can find th way
That lead u to th golden land
Th land of Yesterday? -
It Is not far to Yesterday, - ,
With glamor of tha rose; . , ,
With haunting echo of the song "
That thrilled us to the close.
Tomorrow and Today will lose
Their darknes and their gloom,
And each will soon be Yesterday
With melody and bloom.
