The interview with Secretary Taft af
fords no new Information of special in
terest in regard to conditions in the
Philippines. He said that the political
situation Is in some respects not as good
as It ought to be, there being among
a portion of the people malcontents
who continue to make trouble. The
secretary did not venture an opinlou as
to bow long this state of affairs Is likely
to continue, but there is some reason
to apprehend that it may go on for a
considerable period, though possibly not
developing into anything very serious.
In regard to Industrial and commercial
conditions what little Secretary Taft
had to say was not encouraging and It
Is reasonable to suppose that could he
have told anything encouraging be
would have done so.
The obvious fact Is thst our govern
ment must speedily do something to
promote better business conditions In
the Philippines or run the risk of hav
ing more serious trouble there. This
was pretty plainly Implied In one of
the remarks of the secretary of war,
where he said that this alien govern
ment Is much more likely to be criti
cised for existing conditions, however
free from blame in respect to them,
than a native government. The inves
tigation of conditions made by the sena
tors and representative who accom
panied Secretary Taft, will, it is reason
ably to be expected, be productive of
legislation that will aid in relieving
agricultural depression In the Islands
and Improving the industrial and com

As a matter of fact, the dumping of
the royalties from the gas snd electric

fund baa resulted in an Increase In the
number of lamps, not because they were

companies Insist upon transferring their
contribution to the city out of one
pocket and Into the other pocket. For

The emigration from the United

the latter country. They have expressed
apprehension that the effect would be to
ultimately Americanize the Dominion
and draw it away from its British loy

contrary he would extend to Americans
the heartiest possible welcome. Some
two weeks ago he turned the first sod

that If there Is a class to which he would
give a special greeting It is the Amerl

As originally organized the various
Improvement clubs of this city were de
signed in good faith to create popular
Interest in needed local Improvements
and concentrate the Influence of the resi
dents of the various sections of the
town upon the mayor and council, the
park board and the various public utility
companies for the betterment of condi
tions and abatement of abuses. Within
the last year, however, the Improvement
clubs have been utilized by polltlcul
mountebanks and corporation cappers to
disseminate misinformation and create
false public opinion on muutcipal
Meetings of tnls and that Improve
ment club' are called on snort notice, and
resolutions are passed and promulgated
as expressing the sentiment of the mem
bership of the club when, in fact the
meetings are attended by only a handful
of people, most of whom are trained
stool pigeons, paid to make capital for
or against any particular proposition.
Thut was the character of the public
improvement meetings last fall when
the municipul electric lighting proposi
tion waa before the people of Omaha.
The same tactics are being pursued now
in the improvement meetings called to
debate telephone competition. Instead
of a free and full discussion of the ad
vantages aud drawbacks of two tele
phone systems the public Improvement
club meetings have degenerated Into
wordy encounters between paid and un
paid emissaries of both sides, and the
resolutions adopted for or against sim

It seems to us high time that the offl-

Phase af tne Qaeatloa Ignored
Corporation contributions to political
campaigns are to be criticised from three
widely different points of view, according
as the complainants emanate from the peo
pie, from stockholders and policy holders
or from some political party.
At tha present time there Is popular
prejudice against corporations and great
alarm la expressed at their alleged contrl
buttons to campaign funds. Concerning
this feeling It is sufficient to say that we
live In a corporation age, In which every
thing is done through corporations, and It
inevitable that political expenditures
shall be provided for like everything else.
All things considered, no mora money Is
raised for ordinary campaign funds than
has always been raised and campaign
funds are not one whit more apt to be per
verted to dishonest uses than they were a
The most groundless and ridiculous com
plaint that could be made against these
contributions emanates from the demo
cratic party, and this complaint la not so
much that the corporations contribute to
political objects as that they now confine
their contributions to the republican party.
Lp to the campaign of IK the demo
cratic party received aa many corporation
contributions as the republican and it has
taken all it could get ever since, but with
out the former publicity.
Admitting for the sake of argument that
the corporations for the last ten years have
not contributed one dollar to the demo
cratic treasury, who Is to blame for It 7
Most assuredly the party has no one to
blame for it but Itself.
Ever since tha national democratic con
vention of ISM tha party has advocated,
though with waning enthusiasm, a national
financial policy which would not only dis
turb financial, commercial and Industrial
Interests, but ruin them. Wealth, whether
private or corporate, was openly menaced
as long as William J. Bryan waa tha party
leader, and Its fears have not been allayed
by anything that the party haa done alnce.

Whoso treats friends and strange alike
