A MCW DKMUCBACT.
Noting the evident trend toward Sen
ator Gorman for the democratic presi
dential nomination next year, the Balti
more American expresses the opinion
that In the campaign of 19(4 the repub
lican party will have to face a new
democracy. It remarks that the one fact
which stands out clearly and Indisput
ably In all the current gossip about the
Maryland senator is that the long-rumored
reorganisation of the democracy
has, to all Intents and pnrposes, been ef
fected. "There are some men In official
places," observes the American, "who
are yet to le unseated, but the chniiiro
In the party sentiment upon which any
reorganization must depend has been
made complete," and it adds that "Just
now Mr. Oorman Is an Interesting char
acter, for the democracy he will lead
can be nothing less than the direct an
tithesis , of the democracy of Bryan,
while at the same time it must be a most
decided modification of the democracy of
Cleveland, It is going to be a new brand
of the old. staple political faith. Just
what it will be like, In Its details cannot
now be reported, but It Is safe to say
that it will be so different from the old
as to bring republicanism face to face
with a new and untried antagonist."
The next democratic national conven
tion and not Mr. Oorman will define and
declare the principles of the party, al
though that leader will doubtless hare
something to do with the framing of the
platform. But If the work of defining
democratic policy for the next national
campaign were to be left entirely, to Mr.
Oorman what good reason Is there to be
lieve that he would make so radical a
departure as the American suggests?
He would have to recognize some of the
principles proclaimed by the democracy
In the last two national campaigns or
run the risk of losing the support of a
very considerable element of the party,
and it Is not at all probable that he
would take the risk. Nobody doubts
that the democratic convention of 1!04
will Ignore the silver question. That all
sensible democrats now regard as deod
and there will be no serious attempt
mad;! next year to revive it. Butvthe
persistent democratic attack on a tariff
for protection will be maintained, So
called imperialism will undoubtedly
again be denounced, something la to be
expected condemnatory of "government
by Injunction," and a more or less vig
orous declaration against the trusts can
be confidently looked for. So for as
these mutters are concerned, therefore,
it Is quite safe to say that the demo
cratic platform of 1004 will In effect re
peat the platforms of 1S!M) and 1900.
In what resieet. then, Is there likely to
1 any such departure from already de
clared democratic doctrines as to create a
new democracy? . What principles or poli
cies does Mr. (torman particularly stand
for; that would constitute a basis for a
new democracy? His latest political move
was as an advocate cf negro disfran
chisement, but it is hardly, conceivable
that be wiil be Able tp induce tb demo
cratic party to make, that a national
Issue. -In short, we do not see promise
of any such change In the character of
the democratic party as the 4Am'erIcau
forecasts. It would doubtless be well
for the country if the party should un
dergo a radical change and yet Into sym
pathy with notional progress, Instead of
persisting In playing obstructionist, but
to effect such a change will require a
much abler and stronger leader than

APPEAL TO ORtiAT BRITA1K.
The Colombian authorities have pre
sented their case to the British govern
ment. In the form of a protest against
the action of the United States regard
ing Panama. It is u purely perfunctory
proceeding and will amount to nothing.
As the reader Mill see by reference to
the dispatch from Tondon, the claim Is
made that the United States government
is responsible for . the secession of
Panama, a charge which ' has not the
slightest evidence to support It and
which It can Ins very confidently pre
dicted will receive no consideration from
the British or any other . European gov
ernment. Another allegation Is that our
government has prevented the govern
ment of Colombia from using proper
means to repress the rebellion. The tact
Is that all the representatives of Co
lombian authority In Panama when the
Independence of that state was , pro
claimed withdrew, except such as joined
the revolutionists, leaving the latter com
plete masters of the situation. The
withdrawal of Colombian troops from
Panama was not required by our gov
ernment, but that having been done and
the new government there recognized,
as was clearly necessary under the
circumstances. It was very .properly de
cided by the Washington authorities In
order to prevent interference with the
ojK-n and free transit of the Isthmus,
thnt Colombian troops should not be
permitted to land at Colon or Panama.
Not to have done this would have left
the way open for another conflict in
Panama which would have endangered
freedom of transit across the Isthmus
and very likely compelled the United
States to employ-force In carrying out
it treaty 'obligations.
President Marroqulu asserts that the
Uulted States infringed the article of
the treaty of 1840 relating to the sovcr
elgnty of Colombia. This is the chief
argument urged by American news
papers against the course of our gov
ernment. It overlooks the fact that
In effect the sovereignty of Colombia
hud le?n withdrawn from Panama.
Moreover, this Implied duty to main
tain Colombian sovereignty over the
isthmus had reference wholly to pos-r-llie
Interference by foreign powers
and not at all to any revolutionary
r.oveuieut such as resulted In the crea
tion of the new republic. While our
government, as stated by Secretary
Hay, has constantly protectee I Colombia
from furclgn invasion. In domestic dis
sensions, which have been numerous,
it ha Intervened only to prevent dis
turbance of the freedom f lathinlan
traffic. "In tnch cases," said Secretary
nay, "we have Intervened sometimes
at the suggestion of Colombia, some
times on our own impression of the
necessities of the case; but always to
the profit of Colombia as well as of
universal commerce.".' It 1b In the In
terest of universal commerce that the
present action of the United States has
It Is hardly necessary to say tliBt Co
lombia will receive no countenance for
her protest from foreign powers. She
may get expressions of sympathy from
some of the South and Central Ameri
can states, but that Is all. The recogni
tion of the Republic of Panama by the
United States Is complete and irrevoc
able and other countries will In due
time follow our. example. And having
entered Into diplomatic relations with
the new republic it Is thereby assured
of our protection.
RA IL KUADS. PVL I TICS ASD PROSPERITY.
Our old friend Edgar Howard pro
fesses to be greatly distressed because
The Bee passed pointed comment upon
his tearful prayer for a return of calam
ity, crop failure and "business stagna
tion as offering the only possible hope
for another era of democratic ascend
ancy In Nebraska. Judge Howard In
sists that his protest was against rail
road domination and that hard times
are needed to prod the producers up to
make an effective resistance to railroad
encroachments. The trouble with the
democratic prophet Is that he Is so
blinded by partisanship that he cannot
distinguish n railroad democrat no mat
ter how plainly labeled. He wants the
people to stop electing republican rail
road attorneys to office, but the only
remedy he has so far suggested Is to
elect democratic railroad attorneys to of
fice. The democrats combined with the
populists have given Nebraska some of
the worst railroad ridden government
the state ever had and every one of the
recreant officials had Judge Howard's
active support when they were .candi
dates before the people. If the railroad
Influence Is still too strong In Nebraska,
as we are free to admit, we have no as
surance that It will be extinguished or
even reduced by going buck to demo
cratic or fusion officials. The railroads'
emissaries are olways within lotli politi
cal parties to be sure of standing In with
the winning side.
4 THK SAME OLP STORY.
Word comes from Cedar Rapids, la.,
that the tax paying citizens there are
just awakening to- the situation by
which they have been .paying all the
taxes for the support of their city au
thorities which the railroads should be
paying on the valuable terminal prop
erty enjoying the Iteneflts of municipal
government. This is the same old story
that we have leen telling over and over
here In Omaha the outgrowth of the
vicious system' of alleged distribution of
terminal values to the assessment " of
.railroad property for taxation.
'.This alleged distribution,, which does
not distribute, is also a part of the Iowa
revenue laws and the result Is. most
flagrantly sent iu Cedar Rapids, where
property worth hundreds of thousands
of dollars formerly ussessed for munici
pal taxation at reasonable figures has
been recently acquired by the railroads,
and, after passing through tle distribu
tion hopper, conies back in the city tax
roll at a valuation of a few hundred dol
lars. If the railroads would only buy
enough property for their terminals and
distribute it all outside of the jurisdic
tions where city taxes are Imposed, the
municipal assessment roll would be
practically wiped out.
The Bee recently called attentioa to a
similar complaint occasioned by the de
cision of the Illinois supreme coust up
holding railroad tax-shirking ''by pre
tended distribution, and what It tnld
then with reference to Illinois npplles
equally to Iowa. If the exemption Is
only statutory and In no way In conflict
with constitutional guaranties of tax
uniformity, the only remedy Is by reme
dial legislation, and the prospect for that
Is not encouraging. Iu Nebraska, how
ever, wherethe light for equitable tax
ation of railroad terminals Is boing
waged with persistence, the constitution
Is explicit that all property subject to
municipal taxation should be assessed
so that the taxes "shall be uniform iu
respect to persons and property within
the jurisdiction of the body Imposing
the same." Taking any part of the rail
road property within the municipal cor
poration outside of It for taxing pur
poses destroys the uniformity of the
taxes levied on the other property.
That is the point of the fight In a nut
shell. The Injustice of the present sys
tem Is gradually being seen wherever It
prevails and the protest against the eva
sion by the railroads of municipal taxes
Is sure to spread and grow louder.
The Iowa State Board of. Control Is
asking for appropriations aggregating
over a ' million dollars for permanent
Improvements at the various state In

Inference is Justified that the board
cfju templates nothing but substantial
fireproof construction If not, the legis
lature certainly should Impose such
conditions by Incorporating the stipula
tion luto the appropriation bill. Iowa
has had several unfortunate conflagra
tion experiences In its state Institutions
too recent to be forgotten. The expo
sure of helpless wards, or unfortunate
defectives, to the dauger of fire should
not le countenanced in a great and
rich commonwealth like Iowa, or, for
that matter, in any state of the re
public. The way they are projecting demo

That we have to go away from home
to hear the newa Is again exemplified
by Hie fact that, down in Washington
the report is current that Omaha Is hot

of course. If the committee wants to
favor Omaha in fixing the location we
will try our best to take care of the con

growth of Omaha must be at the ex

too firmly Imbedded in aoine small minds
to be uprooted in a day or a year. When
success Is demonstrated they will all
come to their senses.
The recent dispatch quoting certain
eminent citizens of Denver as counsel
ling the use of shotgnns In the preserva
tion of a pure ballot only reminds us
again that these same eminent citizens,
under the leadership of Colorado's demo
cratic senator, have met such reverses
lately as require definite efforts to ex
plain. Omaha has not enjoyed the privilege
of being called the wickedest city in the
world by some itinerant money-grabbing
evangelist now for several weeks. This
exemption cannot be expected to last.
It will not be long before we have au

us how bad we are and to offer to help
to save us for a price.

I The Rooseveltlan manner In which the
president has managed Uncle Sam's affairs
in connection with the new Republio of
Panama Is thoroughly characteristic of
President Roosevelt and Is at the same
time a high service In the advancement
of civilisation. According to the profound
ethics of modern diplomacy and statecraft
the president may have been a little early
and he has thereby' furnished the opposi
tion press a wonderful lot of cheap ammu
nitionbut the Progress predicts that pos
terity and future generations, regardless
of political creed,' will not only endorse,
but highly commend, President Roosevelt's
actions in the Panama controversy of 1903.
Ills strenuous and promptness In the prem
ises appear so eminently correct that even
many pt the metropolitan papers opposed
to the president have not yet recovered
sufficient breath to make any great noise.
The Progress Is not a republican paper,
but' nevertheless admires many of Presi
dent Roosevelt's qualities as a statesman,
and especially commends the "emergency
clause" policy which is so characteristic
of his administration. He Is generally
"up-to-now" when an emergency arises.

IMHSGg IX THE ARMT,
Matters of Oeaeral Iaterest Gleaaed
from Army stud Havy Register.
The retirement of Lieutenant General
Young In January and the appointment of
General Chaffee us chief of staff will leave
a vacancy among the genernl officers serv
ing on the general staff. It Is commonly
supposed that the successor of General
William H. Carter, when thnt officer leaves
on the next transport for Manila, will be
General Tasker II. Bliss, the head ot the
Army War college. This leaves unfilled
the place vacated by General Chaffee. Two
names are mentioned as those of officers
between whom the choice of selection rests.
One is General Arthur MacArthur. now In
command of the Department of California,
and who would, of course, become principal
assistant to the chief of staff. The other
officer named Is General Thomas H.i Barry,
who Is now In Washington. The only re
quirement of law Is that there shall be two
general officers In addition to the chief ot
staff and the chief ot artillery, so that It Is
possible two brigadier generals will suc
ceed to the places now occupied hy General
Chaffee and General Carter.
There continues to be discussion of the
appointment to the grade of brigadier gen
eral In the army, a vacancy to occur on
the retirement In January of Lieutenant
General Young. In addition to the names
which have already been mentioned In the.e
columns It is now said that an officer
whose friends have been encouraged to ex
pect his appointment Is Colonel Albert L.
Mills, superintendent of the Military acad
emy at West Point, and a captain of the
First cavalry.. While Colonel Mills Is not a
candidate In the sense that his application
Is on file for the approaching vacancy, he
has been recommended for the place as a
recognition of his service In the field. An
other officer whose name Is mentioned this
week Is Colonel E. II. Crowder of the judge
advocate general's department, a . member
of the general staff.-
The military information division of the
general staff has been compiling much In
formation of value to the War department
In the event of military occupation of Pan
ama or Colombia. The army and navy of
the Colombian government are not of suffi
cient aise to constitute much of a problem.
The great difficulty which would beset an
Invading force would be geographical rather
than strategic. In Colombia the progress
of a military force would be Impeded by the
mountainous character of the country, and
In Panama, while the country Is fiat, the
trails are narrow and crooked through
dense Jungle. Under both conditions an
enemy of Inferior numerical strength would
have decided advantage, especially in the
guerrilla warfare destined to be carried on
there. The only fortifications worth men
tioning are those at Cartegena, where there
are two old forts. The most accessible port
on the north Is Barranqtillla and progress
Into the Interior would have to be by means
of flat boats up the Magdelena river as far
as I .as Teguas and then to Honda by a
railway line. After that the approach to
the capital Is over, a mountainous trail. The
port on the Pacific side Is Bifena Ventura,
from which place to Rogata , the line of
march would be over three or four moun
tain ranges. i
ThisN situation on the Isthmus brings up
the question, whether troops arid marines
will be obliged to occupy , the Isthmus
permanently. If this Is found to be the
case. It Is likely that a tour of duty there
will , not extend beyond one year,. The
prospect of garrisoning the canal route Is
hot the pleasantest one, and there are more
agreeable naval stations than being located
off Colon. ...... . . . ...

The regulations governing the promotion
to a commissioned grade In the army from
the ranks have been amended. Hereafter
there will be no grading affecting the gen
eral average on such subjects as physique,
moral character and antecedents. It Is
reasoned that candidates are qualified or
disqualified to start with In those respects
and that there Is no relative merit. Here
after the preliminary examination will be
competitive, which It has not been here
tofore, and( in this respect Is made to
resemble the final examination which has
always been competitive. A further change
is that which requires thst candidates shall
be at least SI yeas of age. While It rarely
happens that candidates are less than 21
years old there have been Incidents known
of those admitted to examination who had
not attained the legal age, and, what is
more, they were commissioned. The new
regulations also specify that the candidates
shall be under 30 years of age. Hitherto
the regulatlpns have been so worded that
a candidate was eligible to the examintion
and appointment up to and Including the
day before his thirty-first birthday. The
change of the phraseology Is In accord
ance with the text of the law of July 30,
1892, providing for the promotion of enlisted
men to the grade of second lieutenant.
Changes have also been made In the form
prescribed for the Individual record of the
candidate. One of the questions, that which
asked the candidate if he had ever been ap
prenticed to a trade, has been omitted.
Another, question which had to do with
previous service In the National Guard now
embraces In the Inquiry volunteers and
Another subject under consideration In
the general staff is the increase of the
artillery corps. A proposition to this end
has been submitted to the chief of artillery
and it Is understood to meet with favor.
at least so far as the general proposition'
is concerned. It Is recognized that sooner
or later there must be uddltlons to the
artillery force which Is at present unable
to adequately mun the coast fortifications.
Secretary Root, however, has signified his
indisposition to make . recommendations
along this line and unless his successor at
the head of the War department shall
entertain other views on his subject there
will be no department recommendation to
congress for artillery Increase or the In
crease of any other arm of the service.

his power to have a clean campaign. Both
nominees were good citizens and able law
yers and there was no rail for personal
matters being dragged Into the campaign.
Sullivan's record upon the bench should
have furnished sufficient argument In his
favor. " .
Falls City Journal: The republican party
In Nebraska Is In power to stay, probably
forever. There Is only one thing to beware
of and that is not to get arrogant with our
power and think that we can force any
thing on the people. The republican party
must be careful to put Its best men into
office and keep clear of any Improper leg
islation. Next year there will be a legisla
ture to elect and that body will elect one
United States senator. This Is a critical
time for the republican party and care
must, be taken that the strength of the
party Is not destroyed by bad management.
St. Paul Republican: In reply to the
campaign charge that Judge Barnes Is a
tool of the railroads it has been pointed
out that his largest vote came not from
railroad strongholds, but from the farms.
Now that the fight Is over. It may as well
be said candidly that there was never any
sound reason fot believing that the rail
roads preferred Barnes to Sullivan, or vice
versa. Of course, the World-Herald and
its small-bore Imitators made a great howl,
but It was all for effect. Everybody who
knew anything at all about the situation
understood that there was no choice be
tween Barnes and Sullivan so far as the
railroads were concerned. Both men were
recognised as fair-minded and capable and
it Is doubtful whether any railroad official
or employe cared a straw which was
elected, except as his mind may have been
Influenced by his Individual politics. There
are times, no doubt, when the railroad Is
sue may be legitimately raised, but Its In
jection Into the campaign Just closed was
the cheapest kind of claptrap.
