TFZSTERX BAXKIXG GROWTH
There has been a remarkable growth
In national bunking during the past fire
year, particular! luthe west and south,
where marked advantage has been taken
of the law of llxio, whlrh made the or
ganization of national banks easier and
more profitable on smaller capital. A
Washington dispatch says that a treas
ury official,' In speaking of the national
bank situation In the west, with refer
ence to which It appears there has been
some criticism and even alnrui, admitted
that a banking boom almost irmounting
to inflation has been and Is In progress,
but he did not think there is any ground
for alarm. The official Is quoted as say
ing that undoubtedly there has been bad
banking In places, but it was the Work
of Individuals acting as Individual and
does not Indicate a general tendency to
looseness or to excessive speculation.
He observed that instead of inflation
being general, as assumed by those who
profess to be alarmed at the situation.
there 'are too many Institutions which
are conducted evfn too conservatively,
carrying unnecessarily large reseives.
Whether or not the growth of national
banking in the west has been more rapid
than the increase of wealth and the de
mands of a steadily expanding business
ustlfled could not be easily determined,
but It may fairly be doubted. The hun
dreds of small banks that have been
organized since the law of 1900 has
passed were undoubtedly called for by
the business conditions In the communi
ties where they hare been established
and they have been an Important factor
in promoting the welfare of those locali
ties. They have very generally been
conducting their business on a careful
and sound basis and very generally, it
can be confidently asserted, are in as
good condition at this time as the banks
of any other section of the country.
There is no reason, therefore, for any
feeling of alarm respecting the western
banking situation. No undue Inflation
has taken place, as shown by the last re
ports of the western banks, nor is there
likely to be any, at least in the near
future. Western bankers are as a rule
conservative. They do not generally
make money for their institutions by
aiding or encouraging speculation. We
venture to s- that the bankers of no
other section f the country exercise'
greater caution In their affairs than is
observed by the bankers of the west
Western banking has simply kept pace
with the growth of western business,
wealth and prosperity. It is one of the
evidences, and by no means the least
substantial, of the remarkable progress
of this section in recent years. Those
who profess to see any danger in it prob
ably have a very superficial knowledge
of the conditions. They are not thor
oughly informed as to tho rapid and
great advance the west has made in a
few years. And this section is still
progressing and creating additional de
mands for banking.
A StRlOVS QUESTION'
Republicans of Lancaster . county 4n
their contention have nominated to go
upon the ticket to be "voted this fall
candidates for register of deeds and
county commisalouer in disregard of the
biennial election laws enacted by the
last legislature relating to these offices,
which would exteud the terms of the
present incumbents for a year. Lancas
ter county republicans have been per
suaded to thla course by advice to the
effect that the constitutionality of these
laws Is questionable and that nomina
tions now made would be a safeguard
against an election by default should uo
party nominations be made and the law
be declared void; whereas, should the
law be upheld, nominations would
amount to nothing more than harmless
This raises a question which is still
more serious to the voters of Douglas
county. The new primary law, which
applies here, but to no other county, pro
vides an exclusive method of nomination
and the list of offices to be filled la to be
embodied In a proclamation Issued by
the county clerk calling the primary elec
tion. Under this law It will apparently
be Impossible to nominate candidates for
register of deeds and county commission
era in the regular mauner in anticipation
of the possible voiding of the biennial
elections legislation. The dilemma Is
one which calls for speedy solution and
it is to be hoped the lawyers will find a
satisfactory way out.
TBS VCIIEAV Of STATISTICS.
Another charge is made against the
bureau bt statistics of the Deportment of
Agriculture. It is alleged that the statis
tic on tobacco have been manipulated in
the Interest of the Tobacco trust and an
investigation baa been Instituted. Thus
thla bureau Is now undergoing two In
vestigatlons and it Is possible that others
will be found necessary before those al
ready begun are ended. According to
reports from Washington the president is
likely to order a general investigation
and certainly there aeetns' to be very
good reason why this should be done. It
is said to be the belief of Secretary Wil
son that there have been irregularities
In the estimates of all the crop reports.
The disclosure of the cotton crop leak'
ages and the charge that tobacco sta
tistics bav been manipulated in the in
terest of the trust Inevitably casta dis
credit upon all the reports. The natural
Inference is that there has been a sys
tematic Juggling with the statistics on
the part of some of the bureau employes
who are in position to do this. There
fore a general investigation seems neces
sary in order to if possible discover how
extensive th wrongdoing has been aud
who is responsible for it.
M'hat appears to be Imperatively re
quired Is a complete reorganization of
the bureau. Confidence in its reports has
been very greatly impaired if not en
tirely destroyed and cannot be restored
If those now in charge are retained. No
formal charges have tieen madv agaiust
the chief statistician, Mr. Hyde, in con
section with the irregularities disclosed
and alleged, still there Is a feeling that
he should be held responsible. In some
degree at !east, for that which went on
under bis very eyes. It seems evident
that he has not been as careful and vltri
lant as a man in that position should be.
Doubtless he, like Secretary Wilson, had
mpllctt confidence in the employes of the
bureau, yet in view of the fact that for a
long time there had been more or less
crltlclmii and suspicion regarding the re
ports the chief statistician cannot be held
to bo wholly faultless respecting the Ir
regularities developed. At all events he
certainly does not now enjoy the general
confldeneewhlch he had prior to the dis
closure of the cotton crop leakage and
therefore it would be a mistake to let
him remain at the head of the bureau.
It is stated that President Roosevelt
has in characteristic fashion taken bold
of the matter, which means that no ef
fort will be spared to make the investi
gations that have been instituted thor
ough and unsparing. In this the secre
tary of agriculture will undoubtedly be
found equally earnest and determined.
Meanwhile some changes from former
methods have been made which it Is be
lieved will prevent in future any such
practices ns have been disclosed. Still a
reorganisation of the bureau of statistics
is manifestly desirable as soon as It can
practically be accomplished.
WHEN UMAIIA. IS HOUSED-
The magnificent showing that is being
made in the canvass for subscriptions
to the Young Men's Christian association
building fund of flOO.OOO,-which was to
be raised within two weeks, affords an
excellent illustration ct what Omaha
can do when thoroughly roused and en
listed in a practical proposition.
What Omaha has done in the past In
the way of promoting public and private
enterprise shows best what it can do in
the present and future.. To use a phrase
of the street, people of Omaha have on
varloua occasions "been up against a
pretty tough proposition," but thanks to
their perseverance, persistence and pub
lic spirit, they have never given up be
fore reaching the goal.
What Omaha Is doing now for the en
couragement of new building projects
and business ventures is only paving
the way for what is to come in the near
future. A manifestation of willingness
to assist in public enterprises Is sure to
stimulate private citizens and corpora
tions to Investments In modern store
buildings and warehouses, and business
expansion to new or only partially cul
tivated fields. Flans are already laid
to fill in gaps in our building line that
will keep Omaha well to the front among
the cities of Its size and class, and in
all probability put it ahead in a short
time of several competitors In the race
for commercial supremacy In this sec
tion. Omaha has the geographical situation,
It has the resources, it has the men, and
it hag the spirit all the factors that
make the winning combination.
'The Lincoln Star suggests that our
political conventions should be called to
Order" in the morning, as Is the practice
in most other states, instead of In the
afternoon. A preliminary morning ses
sion, it urges, would suffice for organiza
tion, giving a better opportunity for
more deliberate proceedings on the can
didates and platform. What has forced
the afternoon conventions in Nebraska
is the inconvenience of our train sched
ules and the necessity of fixing an hour
that will permit of the arrival of dele
gates by the morning trains. The little
details of the convention relating to time
and place bave to be adjusted to the
convenience of the rank and file who are
expected to be represented in the mem
Senator Burkett's idea of keeping In
touch with the party has been again
exemplified by the senator's appearance
as a delegate to the nominating conven
tion held by Lancaster county repub
licans, and his service In the conven
tlon as presiding officer. Although an
old idea in. other states, this is a com
paratlvely new Idea in Nebraska, where
the leaders hitherto, who have been ele
vated to the highest positions of honor
aud trust, have conceived it to be neces
sary to draw aloof from the party coun
cils and let the organization steer at
haphazard as best it can.
A writer in one of the Lincoln papers,
reciting some of Nebraska's recent politi
cal history, recalls the fact that "all the
Dromlnent republican newspapers in
Nebraska', except The Omaha Bee, w-ere
badly infected with the free silver craze,
or some brand of It." He might have
added that on the cardinal principles of
republicanism In this state The Bee bus
always been the most steadfast and
pa feat exponent.
That reminds us that neitner the demo
cratic candidate for congress in the
First Nebraska district nor any one for

tluent questions as Jo whether if elected

and the horse marines.
The water works appraisers have been
enjoined on petition of the water board
from proceeding further with the valua
tion of the water plant. But there is
nothing in the injunction to prevent the
members of the Omaha Water board
from continuing to draw their aalarlea
for doing nothing.
Omaha's era of building transforma
tion Is Just beginning. Enough projects
are under way In tha line of building
improvements to insure uninterrupted
activity In the local building trades for
at least two years to come.

for Roome'a modesty brought out this In

OTHER I. A MIS THA OIR.
It seems to be the prevailing notion that
the value of Sakhalin to Jnpan will be only
strategical and sentimental, and that com
mercially the Island will never be of ad
vantnge. On the other hand. Its very
northorly situation st once ptiggests the
altogether unexpected value that Alnska
has proved to have In store for this coun
try, and the possibility that there may be a
second Alaska In Sakhalin. This, however,
I mere speculation, on which time nlone
will throw light. It coal mine would
seem to give the mountainous Island Its
grrntest potential value, but the absolute
want of good harbors presents a great
drawback to Its development. The ssser
tlon has frequently been made that one of
the first conditions of pence upon which
Japan would Insist would be the cession of
Sakhalin. Such a condition now becomes
unnecessary, or at most a mere form. Com
manding the mouth of the Amur river and
such coast line as may remain to Russia
at the close of the war, the strategical Im
portance of Sakhalin to Japan Is apparent,
though It really consists more In getting
the Russians out than In putting the
Japanese In. As for Sakhalin's sentimental
Importance to Japan, the fact that It was
originally Japanese territory, not being
ceded to Russia until tinder compulsion In
1875, Is explanation sufficient.
News received In Paris from Jeddah, the
landing place of pilgrims coming over sea
for Mecca, Is to the effect that all the In
land towns and ports of the Arabian prov
ince of Temen, with the exception of Ho

Mocha, the famous entrepot for coffee
which comes mainly from Abyeslnla, has

ish authority has ceased everywhere. The
latest reports from the northern districts
toward Mecca were that the rising was
spreading to Asia, and that the rebels were
in .control of the port of Gunfuda, about
200" miles below Jeddah. At Constantinople
there Is no definite plan for the pacification
of the country, the employment of force
being prohibited by the excessive summer
heat, and the leaders of the revolt Imper
vious to other methods, such as the Turks
have found effective In the past. The gen
eral complications In Europe also operate
to cause the sultan to keep his forces In

Is understood that he has been advised

A veteran officer of the Russian staff was
discussing the invasion of India with a
special correspondent of a London Journal
the other day. He ridiculed the Idea that
there was the least possibility of anything
of the kind. He said: "Where I our over
whelming force to come from? Where could
we now find five army corps, the least
possible number for such' a risky cam
paign? Tou talk of the Transfasplan and
Orenburg-Tashkend railways as two Im
mense military arteries through which our
invading legions are to be poured. One
of your expert military commentators say
that the Invasion of India Is the only possi
ble means by which Russia can hope to
regain Its lost prestige. That prestige, I
may tell you frankly, la an utterly lost
quantity. On the conclusion of the war,
Japan will be In possession of Sakhalin.
A glance at ,the map will show that any
warlike possession of that Island consti
tutes a standing menace to our great
Amur province. The Japanese being Great
Britain's allies, Is It not certain that if
our army In central Asia assumed a
threatening attitude towards Afghanistan
or India, the Japanese would simultane
ously threaten the Au.ur province, and
even the whole of eastern Siberia?" He
went on to say that, whatever plans oifce
existed for the Invasion of India from cen
tral Asia, they had all been dissipated by
the unlooked-for result of the struggle In
the fa.r cast, and the sudden rise of the
new Asiatic Titan.

Judging by the position of Sweden's

moving so rapidly that quite recently seven

Chicago hlppers hate charged that they
were being discriminated against when
shipping goods to Illinois points In favor
of the shippers of Detroit, Cincinnati and
other places, and asked the Illinois railroad
and warehouse commission to correct tha
abuse. They made good their caso, and It
was reported that the maximum rate would
be reduced 10 and perhaps a per cent. The
railroads loudly protested. A reduction
even of 10 per cent, they said, would bank

confiscation of property.
The ChlcHgo shippers could not see how
that was. They were demanding no lower
rates than some of the protesting roads

shipments originating outside It. It became

commission agreed with the shipper and

head off action by' It. Then the tallroads
saw a great light. The specter of bank
ruptcy ceased to haunt them. Anticipating
the commission, they cut their rates 32 per
cent on all shipments from Chicago to
points south of this city and west of the
Illinois river. The reduction being volun
