There seems to be an Idea among cer
tain of our manufacturers and exporters
thst onr trade in the far east is to be
seriously affected by Japanese compe
tition. It is somewhat surprising to
find the fnr constantly expressed that
this great country, with all its vast re
sources and possibilities, is really In
danger of being outstripped in Its Asi
atic trade by the nation that has just
come out of a most destructive war,
from which it will take her years to re
cover. Such a view seems a sort of con
fession of the inability of the American
people to successfully compete with a
country not by one-tenth part so well
equipped for the trade battle In the far
In an address a few days ago before
the Massachusetts State Hoard of Trade,
the president of that organization, Mr.
Charles Adams, referred to the activity
of Japanese merchants in establishing
cotton mills in Japan and said it would
result in Japnn becoming a vigorous
competitor In the contiguous Asiatic ter
ritory, especially China. He thought
there was danger of Japan absorbing
America's cotton industry in China.
There is no doubt of the possibility of
this, but It does not seem to be a matter
about which there need be any immedi
ate concern. The question that naturally
presents itself is as to how long it will
take Japan to place herself In a position
to absorb the cotton trade of Asia now
held by this country. Having Just come
out of a great war, that has made a
tremendous drain upon her flnauclnl re
sources, and in fact left her very nearly
Impoverished, Japan cannot immedi
ately enter upon a very active career
of industrial and commercial develop
ment. That she will do something in
this direction with the least possible de
lay there can be no doubt. The Japa
nese understand fully their opportuni
ties and they may be expected to take
advantage of them as rapidly as pos
sible. But there is need of capital which
canuot t obtained at once and conse
quently Japan's industrial growth must
be gradual. She will be able to push
forward only as rapidly as she can ob
tain money to promote her industries
and commerce and with ber present
heavy indebtedness it will not be an
altogether easy matter to secure for
eign loans, if Japan should desire to
In the meantime it is to be presumed
that American manufacturers will culti
vate to the utmost the opportunity to
secure trade in the Asiatic countries
and especially in China. There is an
obstacle in the latter country due to
onr explosion policy, but this is not in
surmountable. It is not as serious now
as a few months ago and may soon dis
appear altogether. Japanese competi
tion In the far east is certain to be
reckoned with, but it Is not likely to
become very formidable, in the near

The direct primary is Just as unavoid
able as railroad rate regulation. Re
sistance to these reforms on the part of
railway corporations will prove unavail
ing against the irresistible force of pub
lic sentiment and corporation politicians
and organs may as well submit grace
fully. The primary election law enacted
by the recent legislature for Douglas
county exclusively is, douWless, de
fective in may particulars and may be
pronounced unconstitutional by the
courts. The resolutions of the repub
lican state convention, declaring in
favor of direct primaries may have been
a sop thrown to the reform element of
the party, but it has struck a responsive
chord in the rank and file of the party
that Instinctively regards it as the fore
runner of emancipation from corporate
It was naturally to have been ex
pected that corporation spokesmen
would seek to create prejudice against
It, and it is not surprising that they
should seelf to discourage the movement
In its favor. Our amiable contempor
ary, the Lincoln Star, for example,
which voices the sentiment of corporate
leadership, has labored hard ever since
the direct primary resolutions were
adopted by the republican state con
vention to stem the tide of primary
election eform by specious arguments
and absurd objections. Its latest ab
surdity is embodied in the following
quotation from the Columbus Telegram,
and its endorsement of the proposition
that the next legislature shall enact a
law that will comjiel every voter to at
tend the primary:
Down In Omaha we have seen a sample
of the primary plan. The lost legislature
passed a law requiring primary elections
tn Douglas county. Well, they held such
an election this fall, and It was partici
pated In by only a small per cent of tne
voters. The leaders got together a few
days before the primary and agreed upon
a st of candidates. The party workers
rallied at the tall of the leadera and
carried out their program. Not one In ten
of the voters of Pouglns county took a
hand In the primary contest, and the party
manipulators had easier sailing than they
usually have under the old convention plan
of nominating candldatea. The Telegram
favors a primary election law, but only
with the understanding that the law shall
compel every citizen to take part In the
primary. We appeal to the advocates of
tho primary law to study this vide of the
question. We need a primary election law
In this state. While we are getting such
a law let u get a good one.
Manifestly, the conclusions reached
by the Columbus Telegram were based
on the slim democratic vote polled at
the primaries last month, but that can
be accounted for very readily by the
fact that the democrats nominated only
a few candidates and the contest was
narrowed down to two places. At the
same primary the republicans polled
7,.'KI votes, or nearly 50 per -ent of
the entire vote In the county. That
was the largest uumler of votes ever
polled t any primary In Douglas
The suggestion of a compulsory
primary election law is seurcely worth
discussing. Before we can have a
compulsory primary law we must have
a compulsory general election law. Suchl
a law, however, would be opposed by
corporation politicians and newspapers
Just as vigorously as they are opposing
direct primary election reform In every
state in the union.
A few months r.go President Roose
velt appointed a commission charged
with the duty of investigating the busi
ness methods in the various" depart
ments and bureaus of the government.
The object of this was to ascertain
what reforms could be introduced, what
could be done In the way of dispensing
with or modifying certain red tape meth
ods long In vogue aud which were be
lieved to be an obstruction to business,
and what was desirable In order to
simplify and facilitate business.
This commission has been actively
engaged in the work assigned to It since
Its appointment and It is stated that
the work is now reaching a point where
it is likely to take some definite form
before a great while, either In the way
of actual plans for changes In methods
or else of suggestions and recommenda
tions regarding the steps thot had tet
ter be taken. The Washington corre
spondent of an eastern paper remarks
that the commission has been some
what under fire ever since its inception
and that various newspapers identified
with local interests hove from time to
time given it a rap as opportunity of
fered. But this correspondent says that
so far as can be Judged by unprejudiced
witnesses the methods pursued by the
commission In its Investigations have
been more careful, scientific and ac
curate than those which have been fol
lowed out by any investigating body
appointed by the government for a
good while. "It seems to be clear, al
though the information gathered by the
commission has not been published, that
it has succeeded in getting many re
sults of very great Interest and value,
while there can be ne doubt that in a
number of different respects conditions
in the departments have already stif
fened up as a result of the commis
This sufficiently Justifies the wisdom
of instituting the investigation. Even
in advance of its report and recom
mendations there has taken place re
form and improvement in departmental
and bureau methods. The simple fact
is that the president, from personal ob
servation and Information, had become
convinced that the business methods In
the executive departments of the govern
ment could be improved, that there was
too much "red tape" and circumlocu
tion, that a great deal of time was being
wasted in one way and another, and
that a general reform in methods was
needed. In order to arrive at the facts
the commission was appointed and there
appears to be every reason to expect
that the result will be not only a de
cided improvement in the efficiency of
the public service, but a material reduc
tion in expenses. This movement for
departmental reforms is conclusive evi
dence of the earnest purpose of the ad
ministration to elevate the public serv
ice to the highest standard of efficiency.
