President Roosevelt has completed
bis southern tour. What has been its
effect upon the people of that section?
So far as can be Judged from the ex
pressions of the leading newspapers it
has been altogether salutary. There
has been, so far as we have observed,
nothing but commendation for the
speeches of the president His tributes
to the confederate soldiers have natur
ally pleased the people. Ills assurances
of confidence in southern loyalty have
been gratifying. Ills advice to the peo
ple in regard to the duties and obliga
tions of citizenship has been reeognlised
as that of a sincere friend. The south
has a tetter opinion and a greater es
teem of Theodore Roosevelt than be
fore be made bis trip to that section
and this better Judgment of him will
The tendency of this will be to
strengthen the republican party In the
south. One of the republican leaders
in North Carolina is quoted as saying
that the president has made great in
roads on the democratic party in the
south and that many are enthusiastic
ally for him. "If the president wins as
much democratic support in other states
as he did in North Carolina," this repub
lican Is quoted as snying, "he will be
able to turn It to better account than
if he had stayed at home for an extra
session of congress. The selfishness
of republican officeholders has blocked
party success in North Carolina, but
now that Roosevelt's visit has split the
democratic opposition there will be a
new alignment." What is true of that
state may apply to some others In the
south. Not all of the democrats of that
section are incapable of appreciating in
what direction its best Interests lie or
beyoud the influence of the logic of
events. Some of them must certainly
realize what benefits the south has de
rived from republican policies and
therefore desire a continuance of those
policies. There must also be some who
are convinced that nothing is to be
gained by maintaining an opposition to
the republican patty largely, if not alto
gether, on sectional grounds. This has
been done so long with ntter futility
that the mistake and folly of it ought to

According to a statement of the act
ing public printer between one and two
million dollars might be saved annually
in the government printing office, but in
order to effect this there must be econ
omy on the part of congress in ordering
printing done. Representative Landls of
Indiana has been quoted as saying that
in every department of the government,
as well as in both houses of congress,
there is extravagance, reckless and
shameful waste in the matter of public
printing. Mr. Landls is the chairman of
a congressional committee of Investiga
tion which la about to enter upon that
duty and he states that the amount of
material collected and the evidence al
ready in the bands of the committee are
sufficient In volume to a ma re any one
conversant with the facts, ne declared
that when the condition of affajrs is
made public It caunot help working a
revolution in the methods and volume of
This matter will undoubtedly be urged
upon the attention of congress early in
the session. There is no question that
a vast amount of unnecessary printing is
1 done In the government office, the result
being a waste the cost of which cannot
easily be estimated. For this both con
gress and the departments are respon
sible, but chiefly the former. It Is alto
gether probable that with reasonable
prudence the government could save In
this direction at least two million dollars
IMPunTAfiCK OF THE COVXTT BOARD
The taxpaylng citizens of Omaha and
Douglas county must make themselves
realize more fully the Importance to
them ofthe county board. The county
board is the moving source and respon
sible authority in the management of
all branches of county buslnoss. It is
more than a mere administrative lody

though the amount of money at its dis
posal for current expenses is in Itself
sufficiently great to require the services
of men of good ability and strict in

the money but Imposes the taxes. Under
the new revenue law It Is the Board of
Review for both city and 'county, and

payers, but to all who are to come after
' The prospects are good that Douglas
county will take steps within the next
year or two to erect a new county
building. Such nn improvement would
necessarily involve the expenditure of
upwards of a million dollars, aud every
thing connected with the construction
of a new building will devolve upon the
county board. To put through such a
big undertaking will require the serv
ices of men of mote than ordinary ca
pacity. The people of Douglas county are
about to choose two new members of
the county board members who will in
all probability wield the preponderating
influence in that body for the next three
years. It will mean dollars and cents
and lots of them to every taxpayer to
see that the right men are elected. No
candidates for these positions of sncb
high reputation and special fitness have
ever been presented to the voters as in
the republican candidates this year W.
O. Ure and E. O. Solomon. Under the
new law, too, the county commissioners
are to be voted for all over the county

taxpayers by registering his vote for

THE OHO CAMP A I0!f.
The political situation In Ohio Is some
what puzzling. It appears that the at
tempt to Introduce national questions
into the campaign has not been very suc
cessful, the people manifesting no great
Interest in them. The engrossing subject
appears to be the contest between the
liquor aud anti-liquor1 interests'. This has
occupied the field to the exclusion of
other questions and apparently will hold
It to the end, In spite of all efforts to
direct attention to other issues.
As matters now stand, according to
the latest trustworthy advices, no confi
dent prediction can be made as to the
outcome. There seems to be no doubt
that a considerable number of republic
ans will vote for the democratic candi
date for governor, while on the other
band it is thought at least an equal num
ber of democrats will voter for the repub
lican candidate. The fight of the anti
saloon element against Herrlck is being
carried on with great vigor and claims
to have not lees than 100.000 republican
votes. The liquor element, on the other
hand, is apparently no less earnest In
support of the republtcuu candidate,
though admittedly It cauuot be depended
upon to stand together on election day.

President Roosevelt's Determined
Btaad for Rate negalatlon.
Those ill-advised prophets who lmvo prt
dieted of late that President Roosevelt
would recede from his position regarding
railway rat regulation will have to re
call their prophecies. It was patently ab
surd that a man of th president's quali
ties should yield either to th fancied
needs of political exigency or to the threat
ened danger of a hard fought battle with
the, senate. In his address delivered at
Raleigh, N. C, he made it clear
that to yield has pot entered his thoughts.
There la little In the speech which is not
a repetition of the views he has repeatedly
expressed before, though he states them
this time with even greater vigor. Deny
ing that he sanctions any plan looking to
public ownership or to unnecessary Inter
ference with the railway business, he de
clares his firm conviction that. "It Is out
of the question for the government not to
exercise a supervisory and regulatory right
over the railroads."
If the representatives of the railway In
terests now strongly Intrenched In the sen
ate nursed any hope that the Issue would
not be raised and forced to decisive action
they may as well abandon it. In all essen
tial features the policy which the presi
dent advocates In his Raleigh speech fol
lows that outlined In the new Esch-Town-send
bill to be Introduced at the next ses
sion. He Insists that the Interstate Com
merce commission shall have tho power.
In case a rate Is complained of as unfair,
to fix a maximum rate and keep It In effect
unless It Is reversed by the courts. The
law also must give th commission ample
powers to supervise the practices of the
roads with regard to rebates and the use
of terminal facilities. In a word, there
must be "a real and not a sham control."
Evidently there Is to be no evasion of the
Issue. There have been Intimations that
the railway senators will face tha emer
gency with some plausible compromise
measure making concessions that are only
apparent. That the president Is forearmed
against such action Is proved by his speech.
He would rather see a little additional
power granted, "but really granted, than
see a prf tense ot granting alt In some shape
that really amounts to nothing." Public
opinion, working with the president, may
succeed In wringing some real power ot
railway regulation from th reluctant sen

Th new Chinese minister of France, Uu
She-8hun has been talking freely about th
future rollcy of China to a French journal-
Douhtless. he said, the Chinese are
about to Europeanlie themselves. The em
press Is resolved to facilitate European en
terprises In China, and the emperor la not
likely to oppose them when he reigns ajone.
As to the so-called yellow peril and th
millions of soldiers whom China could arm,
ha remarked that many are apt to forget
th pacific character of the Chines. In a
few years China will hav an Army and
navy reorganised on European lines, but for
purely defensive purposes. As to the ru
mors that Japan Is resolved to mllltarlxe
China, and has filled that country with In
structors and even agitators, he character
Ued them as newspaper Inventions and ex
aggerations. Japan and China, ha pointed
out, are different countries. The Chinese
will Europeanlie themselves Independently
of Japanese Influence. They are sending
students to Europe, who, when matured by
experience, will become the advisers of th
crown. There are fifty In Franc, fifty In
Oermany, 100 In Belgium, seventy in Lon
don, and ten In Austria. Mr. Liu She-Shun
is convinced that in the near future all
China will be opened up to foreigners, but
the latter, he says, -will have to be amena
ble to th laws of the country, which will
b remodelled upon the European pattern.
In the new China foreigners would hv
to abandon the privileges of exterritorial
ity, which they had enjoyed for so long.
Th defense plans which are to be laid
before the Belgian parliament, arid which
Involve an expenditure of I21.0XI.000 for

werp Impregnable from. naval attack, will
strike many observers ' of contemporary
European hlBtory as peculiarly futile. In
the present state of national development
the position of a small state which has
for neighbors on or more larger ones
Is at the best precarious. It must In the
nature of things owe Its security not to Its
own powers of defense, but to the protec
tion of one or another of Its neighbors,
the Interest of which may best be served
by checking the schemes of aggrandizement
of other "great powers." This Is particu
larly the case with Belgium, which could
do almost nothing to prevent the forcible
absorption of Its territory by France or
Germany, or the destruction of Its trade
and the ravaging ot Its coasts by the
British, provided the aggressor were given
a free hand and unhampered by the In
terference of the others.
A correspondent of the London Standard,
writing from Joliannesberg, gives an opti
mistic account of the Chinese and nalivo
labor situation on the Rand. According to
him. at the end of August there were
100.030 natives and 44.CO0 Chinese employed
In the gold mines, and application hud been
made for 12,600 more Chinese and 9 .COO na
tives, the latter not being procurable. The
amount of whit labor at the end of May,
1904, was 13.127; at the end of August, 1j6,
it was 17,429. The general revenue, railway,
customs and receipts from coal and explo
sives show a large and continued Inorease,
he says, since the arrival of the Chinese.
The Chinese as workers are fully equal to
the natives, he declares, and superior to
them In physique; the mortality among
them I under twenty per thousand, the
sickness under S per cent, while crime Is ex
traordinarily low compared with that of
other nationalities; 90 per cent of the con
victions being for technical offenses under
the Chinese labor ordinance. He denies
that thero Is any state of terror on the
Rand. The vast majority of the Chinese
coolies, he says, are lawabldlng, inoffen
sive and thoroughly contented. The crimes
of violence committed by them, he adds,
have bren very few and would not have
been even mentioned in the English press If
they had been the work of natives..
There are some famous smokers in Eu
rope, but perhaps none equal an Austrian
and a Hollander, both now deceased. An
old man who died In Vienna kept a record
of his smoking since he waa 17 years old.
In forty-five years he smoked no fewer
than :8,713 cigars, or 18,371 a year, giving
an average of thirty-eight a day. Out of
this gigantic total 43 E00 were given htm at
various times, leaving 5S6,21S, which, al
though this Auntrian devotee at the shrine
of my Lady Nicotine never paid more than
a penny for each one, cost nearly 2,500.
But even this marvelous record Is beaten
by that of Mynheer van Kloes, known by
the nickname of "King of the Smokers."
He was 81 at the time of his decease, and
sometimes smoked as much as ten pounds
of tobacco In a week. How strong with
him was the ruling passion In death waa
shown by his funural. At his express de
sire he was placed In a coffin lined with

Clinton 8collard In Th Outlook.
Let us take leave of hast awhile,
And loiter well content
With little pleasure to beguile.
And small habiliment
Just a wide sweep of rs.ln-wash.ed sky,
A flower, a bird not sweet;
Some easy trappings worn awry;
Loose latches for our feet
A wheaten loaf within our scrip;
For drink the hillside spring.
And for tru heart companionship
The love of loitering.
We want so much, and yet w need
So very slight a stor.
But In th age's grip of greed
W hurry more and more.
The woodland weaves Its gold green net;
The warm wind las by;
Can we forego? can we forgetT
Come, comrade, let us try!
